"house appropriations committee" Discussed on Freakonomics
"So took a little while for everybody to figure that out but that that was a fictional surplus. Secondly, I never had a single conversation or debate with the house appropriations committee or congress frankly both parties where they were for less spending than I was ever. There were some circumstantial changes. There was that little thing called nine eleven followed by the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts, and that required some spending that everybody agreed on. But, but you know, wasn't forecast before I went to the National Press Club not too long after that happened. And I talked about you know, what Harry Truman did when he decided we had to engage in the Korean conflict, and what Franklin Roosevelt suggested doing, namely, if you have to spend money on national security emergency you stop spending money. Elsewhere, congress didn't buy it. Well, let me ask you this. You were in charge of of creating forecasts for the cost of a potential war in Iraq. And his I've read you've put that number in the roughly sixty billion dollar range the ultimate cost was actually in the eight hundred billion dollar range, just Iraq. I'm glad you brought it up because we'd been some misunderstanding or and kit. K K -cially some very big misrepresentation of that I'll let chance and I wanna get any corrections. But really the larger question I want to ask is this. It strikes me that a lot of US policy tax policy spending policy. And so on is a result of these sort of accidents of history wars often whether preventable or not I think back to World War Two, and how that changed for many many many many years techs policy in the US. It also changed for many many many years continuing to this day the way our health insurance is set up connected to employers, which was not the case in in. Most other countries was not the case here is I understand it before World War Two. So I guess what I'm asking is. It's a little bit like, you know, the famous Mike Tyson, quote, everybody's got a plan until you get punched in the mouth, and I'm curious to hear your assessment of how your plan stands up in a world where these things do happen and through all the plans out the window. Well, this question let's go back to the front end. Just get that taken care of when the. The president made the decision to go to Iraq. This wasn't in anybody's budget. So there had to be what the it's called a supplemental appropriation Bill. Congress loves these by the way, cause they generally become an opportunity to serve as the Christmas tree and put other things on there. It was a supplemental appropriation for a specified time. The question was how much will it cost to defeat? The Iraqi army and to stay for six months in the night of the planners of the fought was that's all you'd have to be there. You win the war stabilize the situation. Turn it over to somebody leave now, oh, Embi is not war planners. We didn't decide to go to war, and we didn't plan the war. But someone having done that our job was to produce the best estimate. We could the answer that question. It turned out to be pretty darn accurate. In fact, I think it caused a little less than that. If someone had asked what caused the beat the Iraqi army stay for ten or fifteen years while you've gotten a very different. Answer. I argued during the time it'll Embi that natural disasters are going to happen. We have history. And now congress doesn't fund those I said when we every year fund, what looks to be an average amount.

"All we want. All we care about all we've ever cared about. All that really matters in the end is if we get to the truth and other words, what is the truth? What happened had this all begin? How did this happen in our country? The United States of America. This is not a banana Republic, we our country that is based on the single greatest governing document in the history of ma'am. It's called the United States constitution. And if we shred that or violate that or abused the power that is given to those enumerated powers, given to very specific people three branches of government are Duda -ciary being one and the other being, you know, we have representatives, and of course, the executive branch legislative branch judicial branch. And if we don't get to the bottom of it, which is now happening. We will have a country. It's that serious. We have had ninety nine point nine nine nine nine nine nine nine nine percent of this rage hate Trump media mob. They have literally been the extension of this new extreme radicals, socialists Democratic Party in this country. They have been in sync they even share talking points and your factored crisis at the border, everybody with a brain can figure out an an any ounce of common sense can figure out what's happening at the border is serious that doesn't matter. You can see it is transparent that they don't care when they champion. I believe I believe but only against Republicans bludgeon cavenaugh for something alleged to have happened when he was in high school. Romney cut a kid's hair had application, finders of women's resumes. Okay. Wanted to hire women, but then ignore serious real allegations of rape and violence sexual assault. By a democrat, the Lieutenant governor of Virginia, but I don't want to digress here. So we have now had two days of information come to us. We had William bar testifying before the house appropriations committee today. And he went before Senate the Senate committee today, and then we had part one of James Baker who was the chief counsel, the general counsel of the FBI under Jim Komi. And then we had today's we have another closed-door meeting that was released. Thanks to congressman Collins. Let me start with the testimony though of William bar before the Senate today, and you you're going to see in the days the weeks, the months ahead, and you're gonna say, well, why does it take so long? I don't know the wheels of Justice churn ever so slowly in a while everybody in the media would their tin foil hat conspiracies that they they have pushed this Trump Russia collusion narrative now. For over two and a half years beginning in July of twenty sixteen and we now have four separate confirmations reports investigations that of all concluded the same thing there is no Trump Trump campaign Russia collusion. What about Manafort? Okay. Manafort was taxes and loan applications of our Ted nothing to do with this time with Trump. What about Michael comb, okay? Taxi medallions and line congress nothing to do what so ever with the with what the mandate of any evidence of any collusion with anybody. Now, what really broke today that has both the media and Democrats freaking out is that the attorney general of the United States of America today confirmed. Yes, that which we have been telling you is going on for a long time. And that is and Senate Democrats, Jerry Nadler or even full complete meltdown mode. Oh, and as I look at the news channels. Let's say Democrats. Oh, they're talking about the democratic plan for healthcare. Oh, and they're talking about Donald Trump's taxes on another channel. That's not the news today. They're avoiding the news today. They don't want to admit to their audiences. How wrong they have been the lies. They have told the hysteria. They have pushed, you know. It's breathless coverage day after day minute after minute hour after hour week after week month after month lying with these tin foil hat conspiracy theories, you know, basically feeding on themselves most often starting with anonymous sources and they've been wrong and what? The damage. It's irreparable harm journalism is dead. They're not news networks. We don't we have done more investigative reporting with our unsolvable cast. I do not take all the credit here. We've done it mostly on my shows. But the great Jarrett's, Jon Solomon's and the David schoen's and the Sydney Powell's and Sarah card. I can't name everybody. But there's not a lot of us is not they wasn't or my colleagues in on the few of them on FOX that stayed with the story. Tucker, Laura, FOX and friends or the great one, Mark Levin. Rush Limbaugh, they've gotten it there on it. Well, we have been we have been on peeling the layers. Here's what bar said today under questioning from an angry democrat Janine Janine bar confirmed. Yes. The Obama administration conducted a spying operation against the Trump campaign. Well, now all hell's breaking loose. So you're not you're not suggesting though that spine occurred. I don't. Well. I guess you could I think there's spying did occur. Yes. I think spying occur. Well, let me question is whether it was predicated adequately predicated, and I'm not suggesting it wasn't really predicated. But I need to explore that it's my obligation. Congress usually very concerned about intelligence agencies law enforcement agencies staying in their proper lane. And I wanna make sure that happened. We have a lot of rules about that. Yeah, we do and laws about that. How is it? First story, we ever broke Solomon and Carter broke it on Hannity. What March of twenty seventeen over two years? Three hundred fifty percent increase in unmasking requests in the final year of the Obama administration. Interesting. That's only a small part of it. Yeah. I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal bar said adding that the Vietnam war generation, which he grew up was very concerned about spying on anti-war Americans by the government member of the government spied on Martin Luther King junior that happened that shouldn't happen in America. Should not have happened in America. And he says he told the truth he thinks spying did occur. The question is whether it was adequately predicated, and I think is obligated congress is usually very concerned with intelligence agencies and law enforcement agencies staying in their proper lane. In other words, we give them the most powerful tools of intelligence, and they're not allowed to weaponize them on the American people there to be used to protect the American people and the constitution protects the rights of Americans not to be spied on this way. And when you go before, you know, this is where this is all headed the evidence now is overwhelming and incontrovertible Hillary Clinton's investigation was rigged. And other words and with the new testimony, which all go over James Baker, the top lawyer general counsel FBI under Komi. Yes. Thought she should be indicted with the you know, what we pointed out from his testimony yesterday. Yes. Classified top secret special access programming information marked as such was on that server in the mom and pop fathom closet. Eighteen USC of ninety three we've identified a whole host of felony she committed if you want everyone that's saying well, there might be some evidence of obstruction of Mullah report, you think the Democrats and liberals in the media care about of -struction if they did there's no bigger, slam dunk case. Then somebody that take subpoenaed emails deletes them has we now know the exact date. They acid washed Hillary's hard-drive at the Platte rivers network. So that they can't recover them. Forensically? You didn't Blake fed it. They'd still be there. And then, of course, have an aide bust up, your blackberries and your iphones with hammers and pull out the sim cards. And he says and that Barr says it did happen now Nadler, oh, he's freaking out sounding like a man whose impeachment dreams have gone up in smoke today, congressman Nadler glut into full meltdown mode after in fact, this was confirmed by the attorney general that spying that occur. Anyway, Nadler suggested he was misled he's demanding answers these comments directly contradict what the DOJ previously told us. Yeah. The DOJ light to you. Then. The evidence is overwhelming except nobody wants to see it. Now, you have a what then the media? They don't wanna have to admit that they've been wrong with their conspiracy theories. And as a result, Jennifer Rubin now calling for the attorney general to be impeached. Now, I want another witch hunt, by the way, thankfully, judge denied a request for media release the mullahs report, you cannot give up sources and methods. You can't do that. You know, we do have enemies by gave a full complete roadmap. You wanna you want to make sure that Vladimir Putin a hostile actor on the world stage. Russia a hostile regime on the world. We can beat them easy. We just out produced the oil and gas, and we offered to other countries that cheaper prices. That's how we're going to win that battle now. In this testimony today, they went over unlawful surveillance of US citizens. They went over page McCabe rod Rosenstein discussion to record President Trump. They went through the timing. Have how the special counsel lines with the firing of Komi? They went through rod Rosenstein McKay page, all planning to record President Trump, and we have all of this now in detail. They were seriously considering doing that they have, you know, Mark meadows, and Jim Jordan you see in. These interviews were amazing. They were spectacular. What they try to remove the president from office. We have that answer. We have Baker never followed up to see whether Rosenstein move forward with the plan to wiretap the president. What was that plan? You know, who were the people that the people they said supported the twenty fifth amendment in our the conversations about the special counsel appointment, the same people suggested the wiretap and the twenty fifth amendment. In other words, a ball and attempted coup. Not by a lot of people. But they were certainly the most powerful not rank and file, you know, and McCabe and the FBI knew about what rod Rosenstein was doing. Here's what's going to happen. Real quick. You're going to see everything that we have been telling you now begin to happen stake in a long time. Some of you have doubted some of you wondered some view said, yeah, you keep pro. I never said when I said, it's gonna happen. We're now going to get criminal referrals. We now have an attorney general as open an investigation into all of this. We are expecting the Horowitz report on FIS abuse that will be devastating over report on leaking than we have the FIS applications themselves gang of eight material three oh twos. And real issues about how an investigation into one presidential candidate was rigged. So that that candidate could win as she should one hundred million zero and not let the smelly. Walmart people vote in Donald Trump. It's all going to be revealed, and there will be indictments and there will be convictions. That's my prediction today. Let me tell you about the black rifle community. You know? The left says, oh, the green.

"Steve Mnuchin is the head of the Treasury Secretary. He's the Treasury Secretary. He's that guy who he and his so called actress wife posed in front of all the stacks of money at at the Fort Knox or someplace like that. And he's taken a lot of private trips, and he's a Hollywood elite. Yeah. You know, he's a producer. And he's and he's a creepy guy. And he got into a fire exchange with US Representative Maxine Waters on Tuesday during the committee hearing with lawmakers on Capitol Hill at the end of three and a half hour testimony before the house appropriations committee and financial services committee, which is chaired by Maxine Waters. Mnuchin interrupted the hearing to remind the committee of a prior agreement that he would be able to leave by five pm now. I know we have some of the audio of this. I don't know where it starts.

"house appropriations committee" Discussed on 77WABC Radio
"Welcome back. This is the Ben Shapiro show. So the Miller report is forthcoming and attorney general William Barr testified today about it. He suggested that it will be forthcoming very very shortly. And that is a very good thing. So why is everybody so exercise about it? He testified in front of the house appropriations committee today. He said the process is going. Well, he says the information will be released within the week. Original timetable of being able to release this. By mid April stands, and so I think that from my standpoint by the by within a week. I will be in a position to release the poor to the public, and then I will engage with the chairman of judiciary committee's about that report about any further requests that they have. Okay, sounds great. Right. I mean, so what exactly is the problem? He's going to be transparent with congress, apparently the document will be color coded. So we know what was redacted, and why is general rule are also says that he doesn't really ask the White House has seen the the report. But there's no reason to assume that they haven't I mean, it is a report coming from the executive branch. There is no obligation for bar to keep the White House in the dark. I've said what I'm going to say about the report today. Issued three letters about it. And I'm was willing to discuss the historic information of how the report came to me and my decision on Sunday. But I already laid out the process that is going forward. To release these reports hopefully within a week, and I'm not gonna say anything more about it and kill the report is out, and everyone has a chance to look at what exactly is wrong with this. And the answer is nothing. But there's a narrative that is building that this giant cover up by the Trump administration, of course. And that narrative was exacerbated today by the disclosure by bar that Muller declined an offer by the geo J to review these generals four page letter sent a congress on March twenty four th you'll remember that that letter was basically just a summation of the top line findings of the report, namely, no collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians and not sufficient evidence to establish obstruction of Justice by President Trump. Well, apparently that letter he offered it bartered to Muller Muller said, well, I don't need to look at that. And people are saying, well, that's because molar doesn't want to sign off on it. Well, Mullah didn't want to sign off on it. Then he would presumably sound off about it when he has in the past or alternatively top line findings in the report were. Accurately summarized by bar, and he had no reason to think the bar was going to engage in a cover-up, especially because Muller is engaged in the process of doing the reactions on the mullahs report. So as to give the public what the public wants Barr says he has no intention of providing congress full unredacted report bar said is barred by law and federal rules. From a leasing information gathered by Muller's grand jury, which is true. He added that intelligence agencies are also reviewing details that might harm sources and methods. Now, if the house wants to change that they can they can pass some sort of law saying that members of the congress should be able to see unredacted reports so long as they're not publicly disclosed, for example. But Democrats don't actually want to do that. Because they understand that this script could be easily flipped that. If you if you want the executive branch protecting people in the executive branch than you could very easily end up with anything said in a grand jury sealed hearing being released into the public at large. It's amazing to see how many Democrats are willing to overturn established institutions of law in order to go after political enemies, namely, President Trump discussed yesterday, New York, Democrats are seeking to change the status of law in the state of New York, we're three committees in the legislature, New York requests, the IRS records of anyone in New York that those records will be released by the Internal Revenue Service in New York to the legislature. I mean, this is insanity. And now they're attempting to do this by getting rid of the rules for action. Pretty amazing needle only who has not even seen the all report describe ours, handling of the matter as unacceptable and accused him of cherry picking Muller's findings throughout the most favourable conclusion possible for the president Lowy said even for someone who has done this job before I would argue it's more suspicious than impressive. Why is it suspicious? He hasn't done anything yet. Just wait. The answer is we have to create a pre arranged prebaked narrative. That's just bad action by Trump since your initial your initial take was just roll. Which is that the report itself would uncover evil action by President Trump. Trump apparently has backed away from his calls to release the full report his resumed announcing the investigation again. This means the Democrats are saying that Trump has something to fear. We will know all the answers in very short order. Everyone's impatience, honestly, it's kind of urinating to me. I understand your patient understand you want to see it, wait five minutes calmed down. And then we can have an argument about whether the reactions are too broad or not. Meanwhile, quick. Quick update from Israel where a major election is taking place. Prime minister Netanyahu is doing something that he has done before election cycles. He is claiming that Likud turn out is really low. Now, this could be what they call the gold strategy in Israel, which is like vault. Nobody's showing up get out to the polls and vote right now or we're gonna lose or it could be that turnout is actually low the times visceral is reporting liquids continuing its campaign of dire warnings of looming election collapse. This is seen as a tactic used by Likud to boost turnout Netanyahu insists otherwise he said repeatedly today the party was headed for an election loss. It'd be a left wing government rising in its stead. Election is hotly contested, the polls going into the election showing Netanyahu's coalition holding in Israel and the center slash centre-left. Coalition led by blue and white to be coming up. Just short of the majority necessary in order to govern in Israel. You have to a coalition government Israel with all of that said, it is amazing. How many folks in America don't seem to understand the reality of foreign policy in Israel, which the blue and white coalition led by Bennie gones, a former general would have formed housing almost identical to that of Netanyahu would not change nearly at all. The left at hates Netanyahu hit gone. Also, the fact is that the New York Times hates Netanyahu. They basically take these really government overall. And they have no matter who is staff the Israeli government from Barack to hold. It. Doesn't matter. All right coming up. We'll be joined by Josh hammer. He is the editor at large of the daily wire he'll be stopping by to give us some insight on the legal situation surrounding the border. What exactly can President.
"house appropriations committee" Discussed on The 11th Hour with Brian Williams
"That right there is likely something William bar. We'll have to address when he next appears on Capitol Hill, we reported earlier that House Judiciary committee chairman Jerry Nadler has contacted the DOJ to set a date for the attorney general to testify on special counsel. Robert Muller's Russia report that rolls off the tongue bar is already scheduled to testify before congress on April ninth. But that's something else. That's a house appropriations committee hearing, the Democrats, of course, are going to seek to question him there. Nonetheless with us tonight. David jolly, a former Republican member of congress from the state of Florida who has since left the party and a point of order hear congressman I woke up to social media this morning, and I saw photos of you and a new member of the jolly family you guys had a baby on Saturday. What in God's name are you doing on basic cable tonight? Or did we get you out of the house? I'm planning on being up all night tonight. We brought little Carolina Claire home. So I've got the late shift. I'm starting with you Brian. Well, we welcome her to the world, and our congratulations and best wishes to you and your wife at some point when she's old enough show. Learn how to pronounce Robert Muller, which is the subject of our interview tonight. Do you think congress will be successful? Do you think we will see Robert Muller raise his right hand in a public hearing and swear in to be questioned? You know? I look I think there's a possibility it would be very negotiated. The reality is there will be highly classified information in the Mola report. I think Democrats are right to demand that bar testify about the conclusions. He drew, and I think they're right to demand that the full report be given to congress and as much released as possible, but we do know there will be highly classified information, and if we do here for molar, I think it would be under negotiated terms negotiated topics. This could be a really dicey period. We have coming up here as I said the top of the broadcast. What folks are arguing about is not the Muller report? It's a four page letter. Do you think the Democrats especially are going to have message discipline in this period? Where what we don't know exceeds. What we do. I think if you look at the midterms, and frankly a lot of credit should be given to the top to their top leader Nancy Pelosi, we likely will see some message discipline. It is important to fight for trans. Parents. He did demand answers from Bill bar about his conclusions. How he drew those conclusions? But I don't think they need to cross the line and begin to question the report itself Bob Muller's findings. The reality is Bob is integrity as strong tonight as it was throughout the past two years. I do think Democrats have other areas of traditional oversight. We will see investigations into law violations. Some real questions about the president's taxes. We will see questions of security clearances. But if you look at the midterms the midterms, we're not one by Democrats on the Russia investigation and neither will twenty twenty. There are stark policy contrast tonight between the two major parties just as there were in the midterms in November of two thousand eighteen as you know. Well, this president says very little by accident. And so when we heard him today say pointedly twice no president should have to go through this some folks theorized, maybe he's looking at a change in special counsel rules down the road. Some folks theorize maybe that's a glancing blow toward the subject of pardons or executive privilege down the road. Did any of that strike you as you watched? I look I think that's giving the president a lot of credit for competency, truly has an exhibited these last two years when it comes to his messaging around this investigation. The president has suggested he's been. Exonerated. He has not we know that there are some vindication tonight and history will recall, that's vindication..

Conferees begin government funding talks - live updates
"The Bill that came out of the Senate appropriations committee this summer with bipartisan support had one point six billion dollars in funding. And it has things that they call barriers and the house appropriations committee which had a five billion dollar a slug of money for border security. Also, talked about barriers isn't necessarily the concrete wall that people have been talking about for a while. But appropriators have pointed out that we have how fencing we have had barriers in some places for a very very long time. And so it's really a lot about semantics and also about getting beyond barriers and talking about technology and talking about more personnel, and then Gration judges and support staff. Breath and places to accommodate people who are coming across the border. So there are a lot of different things. But appropriators wrote bills that dealt with a lot of these issues during the past year and the year before of course, and they know the issues, and they'll probably ready with a lot of different proposals to go over, and it won't be just wall that they're talking about or barrier. However, that's defined, but it will be a multifaceted thing. So is the wiggle room in these negotiations? And in the in these semantics to allow both sides to declare victory and move on. I'm sure that there will be and there may be something that can be described as barrier or wall that will set of satisfy the president. There was interesting talk this morning from Senator mansion talking about how maybe there would be a two year deal. Maybe they spread out that five point seven over two years.

Then it would go to court, and even if a court struck it down he could tell his face that he thought this fight, and he could blame it on the judges that he wants to replace that's bad another important priority for him.

That's it. And we'd set it with the. By the way, the president was good again, though, part of the other marketing campaign of the tall home town hall meetings would have been that you played all those audio cuts from mall of the Democrats, including Obama over the years, stating the fact of you know, what they believed when they when they were empower about what should be done for border security, and you play those over and over again, he should have done that should have had the instead of the rallies started the rallies your whole town hall meetings because rallies are for camp.

Exactly. I mean, it's kind of it's a little bit startling. How the tables have turned. Because now you have Democrats who are fully in favour of special counsel investigating the president.

I mean, Lindsey Graham only voted I think on in favor of two of the articles of impeachment. He wanted to refine it, I think to perjury as well as another one that the the idea that in his mind, this was about the rule of law about about abuse of power.
