Breaking Down the Wuhan Lab Leak Hypothesis, Dr. Fauci and Other Government Officials Involved

"So it appears that there's some kind of and I'll get to this moratorium in a minute. The United States government has a moratorium on funding research that would make viruses more powerful. Gee, I wonder why we put a moratorium on that. Because we could create a whole bunch of really deadly viruses, and that would really suck. Sounds like the government finally did something right when they weren't doing something wrong. Hey, we shouldn't do research like that. But it appears a sub agency of the NIH led by Dr Anthony Fauci. May have approved this grant that went to this eco health alliance that eventually made its way to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, where it's believed. Now, this virus may have leaked from Mm. Oh, it gets better. Here's the third part of this daily caller piece again. They're talking about this Christopher Park, who was the State Department person who apparently did not want to open the Pandora's box looking into this stuff, according to this Vanity Fair report. He says Park was not the only government official to oppose pursuing the lab leak hypothesis, however. The Nano another until Vanity Fair that an intelligence analyst struggled to find a report written by officials working at the Department of Energy Lab that Anna must be a whistleblower. The Nano told the island he viewed the report is being intentionally buried within the classified collection system. Department of Energy officials then attempted to block State Department officials for meeting with the report's authors did Nano alleged okay? So just clearing that up a bit. We have funding paid to echo Health alliance through FAO cheese group there. Making its way around the moratorium against this kind of funding that makes its way to a Chinese lab. We think this virus may have leaked from, and apparently there's a report on it that the government's burying in its own classified system who's burying it? What are they covering up

Microsoft Exploring $10B Acquisition of Gamer Chat App Discord

"I sources began to report late yesterday. That discord was exploring a sale of itself seeking evaluation of ten billion dollars or so then bloomberg reported that it was microsoft was in advanced stages of negotiations to maybe by discord for about that exact ten billion dollar target range but also that discord is maybe more likely to just go public and test the waters itself quoting bloomberg. Actually you'll note there tempering. Their initial reporting here a bit quote discord has been talking to potential buyers and software. Giant microsoft is in the running but no deal is imminent said the people who asked not to be identified because the discussions are private discord is more likely to go public than sell itself. One person said representatives for microsoft and discord declined to comment venturebeat reported earlier on monday. That discord was engaged in sales tax microsoft. Which last year sought to buy social media app tiktok and held talks to acquire. Pinterest has been shopping for assets that would provide access to thriving communities of users. According to people familiar with the company's thinking microsoft's xbox business has also been expanding the suite of subscription perks. It provides as part of its game pass offering microsoft shares. Were up about one point. Two percent in the first minutes of trading tuesday quote microsoft possibly acquiring discord makes a lot of sense as it continues to reshape. Its gaming business. More towards software and services said bloomberg intelligence analyst. Matthew kanter men. There's a big opportunity to bundle discord premium nitro into the game. Pass service to drive more. Subscriptions from last reported number of eighteen million and quote after microsoft's recent seven and a half billion dollar purchase of xeni. Max media owner of the elder scrolls and doom publisher bethesda software and acquisition of discord with signal the redmond washington-based software giants willingness to keep investing in its video game unit and quote. Yeah integrating discord deeply into xbox stuff does make a ton of sense. Although i think they could make an exclusive wall off discord as something that you can only get if you do x. box but also the larger narrative here is that microsoft keeps trying to acquire social networks. Tick tock pinterest. And i keep hearing that one of the motivations for that is to get them all on a juror is that they've invested so heavily to build out this cloud infrastructure that they need big projects to justify their existence. That was always what i heard about google getting into cloud gaming but can this be true. Can someone smarter than me. Explain the economics behind that theory but also discord apparently runs on top of google cloud. So i guess there is value in kicking one leg of the stool out from under your rival right. Maybe google cloud is so far behind and week that its rivals. Maybe think they can strangle it in the crib

Tech and Purpose Driven Marketing in 2021

"Of tech and purpose driven marketing stuff. So in this holiday series we have been speaking with inside the intelligence analysts and getting their perspectives. On what they expect to see in the coming year. Twenty twenty one while they're paying close attention to and why victoria what heading into the new year. Are you paying attention to unfortunately. Or fortunately i think the pandemic is going to be driving a lot of the things that we see going. Into the next year one of them is the acceleration of technology integration and a lot of the technologies that i've been focusing on our following for the past couple of years have sort of been bubbling along at their own at their own pace since some of them have been more popular than others out. But i think next year is going to be a year. This is partly fueled by the pandemic when we're going to see some of these technologies start to converge in a very big way for instance five g which we've been hearing about for several years. We finally have some phones hitting the market that are five g phones. We have some carriers that are rolling out five g networks so now we're going to start to see them pairing some of that five g service with some of these other technologies like augmented reality virtual reality artificial intelligence the internet of things as all these different things that we're we've been sort of abstractly writing about for the past couple of years are going to collide Starting this year and the five g service may be isn't going to necessarily be the fastest or it's not gonna be everything that we've been promised we're hearing about that. It is going to start to be improvement. And we're going to start to see companies really start to figure out how to put these pieces together to make some substantive improvements in the way. We're living so you mentioned a bunch of technologies that which one do you see being paired with five g. I or which one do you think is the most interesting pairing with five g and enter twenty twenty one interesting what i think five g is going to accelerate. I is probably going to be video. We're going to see a lot of devices. Internet enabled devices mobile devices being able to run video too low video much a download video to watch video in real time streaming video and maybe play games. I think we're going to see that all happening a lot more quickly and then over time we're going to start to see more creative executions of technology. Maybe we'll start to see more augmented reality virtual reality which has really faced a lot of problems because of its leg because of its latency because of the technical limitations. I don't think that's going to catch on in the mainstream necessarily but we may see that for gamers a little bit more. The really interesting thing. I think that's gonna happen. All of these technologies converging at once is going to enable multi modal sensory experiences. So for instance one of the big things. A lot of people like to do during the pandemic has been peleton bikes or magic mirrors or all of these other pieces of home fitness equipment. And soon you're going to be able to work out with your magic mirror or peleton bike potentially be able to use augmented reality. Or maybe even with the bike virtual reality where you're actually riding around in a virtual world listening to your own music maybe from another device or watching some other kind of content. Maybe that's sinking with your wearable device or a health related device within your home. That's monitoring your health. That perhaps your doctors monitoring to all of these things are going to start to become very connected in a in. A seamless way. And we're going to start seeing all of these devices sort of responding to people in more natural ways. Maybe you'll be able to control your peleton with your voice. Or maybe kelly your virtual reality headset where you wanna go next or something like that and we're gonna see more. Natural interactions between

"intelligence analyst" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York

"Our Bloomberg intelligence analyst covering some 2000 companies and 130 Industries worldwide. All right, you got one type of credit under our belt. Now, let's get to the next tax exempt demand for communities. What that's all gonna look like for 2021 Joining us now is Bloomberg Intelligence strategist Eric Kozarsky. Hey, Eric. First of all before you get into like what 20 money One looks like Where are we? In the mini market. It's really rough for some states to borrow right now and cities to borrow where we You know, I think, given the fact that there's a global pandemic raging outside the meaning markets actually in okay, shape. Look, I think a lot of people myself included. Thought the world was gonna end in April. But fast forward eight months and here we are. Many market has had record issuing on DPA performances bounce back solidly all on the back of really, really strong technical demands. So to say that we're in a much better place than this spring. Absolutely, but they're still challenges that lie ahead in the beginning of the New year. All right. So let's talk about some of the challenges here. You know, we sweet hear news about you know a lot of these states municipalities really struggling from a budget perspective, big holes, and we know I guess all but one or two states does have a Balanced budget requirement here. So what if the States municipalities doing to kind of bridge the gap there? It's pretty simple, right? It's cutting expenditures, raising taxes, and unfortunately, it's gonna have a trickle down effect that somewhat painful. We could point to Georgia's a key example where they're cutting K through 12 spending by almost a billion dollars. That's pretty significant and you know, you could sort of extrapolate that's all the other states that have balanced budget requirements. I really have to sort of big deep, have some austerity measures and sort of trying to figure out how to write their physical ship. On the wire, whether waiting for the next federal lifeline to come, and unfortunately, the numbers that we're seeing when it comes to the next round of proposed unless really, just don't move the needle. Whole bunch. We're talking 160 billion when you're talking about numbers is high as 500 billion over the next two fiscal period, a Zara's deficits for the state local issuers So why would anyone then want to buy immunity? I know we're going into taxes, but still Yeah, well, look, we valuations for the media sector are pretty high right now. In fact, we're in the beginning of 2020 evaluations for the sector were pretty rich, and we sort of surpassed those expectations at this point the year so people still are continuing to buy and it really goes to show that The demand for taxes them think comedy is solely driving force. However, there's another factor that really comes into play. And that's really the negative correlation or lack of correlation to equities to corporate debt, which a lot of people are looking TOC of a safe haven right now, if you think that the equity in corporate markets are severely overheated when it comes to rest So, Eric, you know our states simply saying, Okay, the municipal bond markets are red hot. Investors are looking for paper if I've got a billion or $2 billion budget deficit Can I just go out and borrow the money? And I want that paper over it. So you're prohibited from borrowing for deficit financing, And that's really where facilities like the federal Newsworld liquidity facility came into play, and we saw a New Jersey actually took advantage of the opportunity to access that program and borrowed to deficit finance. Unfortunately, she was that easy where we were like the federal government. We could just sort of running deficits and that would really take care of a lot of the issues that we have. The problem with the federal program was that it came at a really High penalty rate. And so a lot of bar was just found out that they were better off buying for normal sort of capital projects. And we're keeping the lights on needs in the regular capital IG markets and David save themselves a boatload. Thea other sort of stipulation with that program was that you had difficulty accessing the primary markets, which a lot of issuers unless you're Illinois and New Jersey. I really haven't found it a challenge to do. So you make such a good point, though, that like they're not allowed to first is like the federal government and even cos quite frankly, as we were just talking about S O. If buying unions for tax purposes is truly like makes them that safe haven despite all the fundamentals, what happens if the tax policy has changed, and it's not gonna happen? No. The currency. The initial thought was that Biden administration, which couple in an era of higher taxes, which on its surface is great communities right? It would spike demand higher because people want to show that and come even more. We feel that after sort of looking at the tax cutting jobs at parameters, there's not much that can be done immediately to roll back some of the you know, day things that were put in places far as the limits on salt and so forth. But you know, one thing that is a possibility is Higher corporate taxes and on the margin that could increase demand from unions, which is overall positive for our sector were market that has 30,000 insurers and I would say I'm being a little bit hyperbolic and saying everyone but if you look at who was taking advantage Of being in the marketplace this year. It was certainly a lot of issuers X, So fascinating. Thank you so much, Eric, because ask e of Bloomberg Intelligence. Thank you. Coming up on the program..

Pompeo Attempts To Cement Trump's Legacy In Israel Ahead Of A Biden Presidency

"Workers at the Capitol are dressing up the West Front for Joe Biden's inauguration, members of the current administration are rushing to cement Donald Trump's policies in place. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo was in the Middle East. This past week, he unveiled new pro Israel policies that could be hard for an incoming Biden administration to undo NPR's Daniel Estrin reports from Jerusalem. Compelled, became the first secretary of state to visit an Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank. He had lunch at a winery that named one of its wines, Pompeo. The U. S used to take a dim view of settlements, seeing their growth as an obstacle to peace because they take up land Palestinians claim for an independent state. But Pompeo says Israel has a right to settle the land featured in the Bible for a long time State Department. Took the wrong view of settlements. It took of you that didn't recognize the history of this special place. Pompeo announced a new policy favoring the winery He visited products made in West Bank settlements must be labeled made in Israel when shipped to the U. S. A ghetto front with peace now and Israeli group against Settlements says this could make it hard for consumers who don't want to support settlements if people want to boycott Or not to participate in the occupation. They can do it by not buying products from settlements. This is going to be labors that his friends and they cannot know if it's from occupied territories. Then. Boyce is being revealed all of Israel. Pompeo announced another new policy last week. Today. I want to make one announcement with respect to a decision by the State Department that we will regard The global any Israel BDS campaign as anti Semetic BDS has boycott divestment and sanctions, a movement that calls to boycott Israel because of its policies toward Palestinians. Some Israel supporters see it as a threat because some boycotters oppose Israel itself as a Jewish state, But boycott activists say it's a non violent form of protest. So why unveil these new policies right before Biden takes over. Dead. Ravi V. And Israeli settler leader close to the Trump administration says Pompeo is playing chess with Biden one step before Checkmate. It's putting buy them some sort of check. If you really reversed his decision that were done by the constant ministrations. You might have to confront criticism. As to why doing it. Other administrations have taken steps on Israeli Palestinian policy right before leaving office, like when President Obama allowed the United Nations Security Council resolution condemning Israel's settlements. Scott Lisinski was an adviser for the Obama administration. President Clinton himself using his presidential transition, trying to move Middle East peace forward George Shultz at the end of the Reagan presidency. Negotiating a very careful formal diplomatic dialogue, the first ever between American and Palestinian leaders. These are examples of diplomatic opportunism. Palestinian leaders see this as their opportunity to make nice with Biden. They've agreed to resume security and economic ties with Israel after a six month stand still, and they say they might change a practice, Democrats criticized paying stipends to Palestinians convicted of attacking Israelis. Many Palestinians criticized the gestures like former Minister Nabil Armor in this video he posted. He had the infertile into Paloma that America, he says. Why give more ground before Biden enters office, while Israel is taking advantage of this time to announce more settlement construction. Israel got another boost yesterday with news that the U. S. Justice Department decided not to renew restrictions on the parole of former U. S intelligence analyst Jonathan Pollard. He was convicted of espionage for giving classified U. S documents to Israel and is now expected to move to Israel where he has popular support.

"intelligence analyst" Discussed on Recorded Future - Inside Threat Intelligence for Cyber Security

"So what are. What are the efforts. Been to take trick but down and how has how people running. That net responded one of the things that i sort of want to get ahead of two is. Our data suggests that <hes>. This review campaign is not in re in response to trick takedown efforts. We saw domains <hes>. Being registered in august for this campaign <hes>. Certificates and servers being stood up a couple days prior to the first trick bought disruption <hes>. Now i think it's a little silly to say that they're not related. You know if you're preparing to <hes>. I guess engage with someone in a you know wreck your car or something like that. You're going to be more aggressive. I would imagine. But i don't think it's one to one trick <unk>. Trick take downs led to this. The first of these <hes>. A us government entity is alleged <hes>. I don't know if anyone from that area or that entities confirmed but they pushed in a in a very clever way <hes>. Pushed faked configuration updates to trick of victims effectively. Cutting them off from the botnets. Which was i think. I think it's been a little bit undersold. How cool that is. They were able. They knew enough about how this maller operated function. You know we're able to be their government entity <unk>. They have the legal right to do this. Compromise at least some portion of their network and their infrastructure to then push these fake updates to effectively poison the their implants. It's fun it's funny calling it a takedown attempts because when it really did is severed ongoing intrusions <hes> to me is a little bit more effective <hes>. If you have like a day to do something because we've seen over time is really really tricky cutting off current infections and buying those victims some time who knows how many more ransomware incidents we'd be looking at in late october early november had that not occurred <hes>. And i think that that occurred on september. Twenty second in the next couple of weeks after that <hes>. Microsoft put out legal proceedings that they basically went to a judge and got the rights to seize a trick dot command and control servers. Initially this was just in the us but microsoft's lawyers seem pretty good and they were able to sort of lead what what was an industry coalition <hes>. Lumine and e set and symantec on. Fsi sack was also involved <hes>. To push all that grab identified you know trick bots both tier one and plugging infrastructures. Which are sort of the initial communication and customer management infrastructure and then sort of <hes>. The secondary infection management infrastructure to add plug ins move laterally etc. They were able to seize roughly ninety six percent of the botany of botnets command and control servers which turns out to be a pretty limited number. Compared say you know older or bigger botnets which again is they did this on a <hes>. Pretty interesting <hes>. Legal reasoning in that dietrich authors had abused microsoft trademarks in their code which is pretty unique and and it seems to be a clever legal way of being able to action against these actors and again i i know that some our industry have a sort of said that this effort hasn't been effective. I would argue that. It has taken down. I don't think that microsoft and e said these other companies have sat around and said you know try this. I think that it's a calculated move and so in in the wake of that you know. Obviously that probably meant a number of you know their control. command control. infrastructure is messed up for lack of a better term <hes>. It probably meant a loss a number of infections and so from that. We've seen the botnets <unk>. Battle back a microsoft themselves stated that odd they don't expect the botnets disappear they expect a fight and so we've seen trick <unk>. Back to a command and control infrastructure. That wasn't taken down and some of their <hes>. They've created more infrastructure but they're pushing it out at a much slower rate than they were before when they've been trying to spread and you know get new infections since this on predominantly through email spam they have at is another very very large. You know one. Of the most prolific spam senders in the world. They they sell access as a service and in a lot of instances. Since the trick takedown efforts began <hes>. Email ted has been observed dropping trotz usually or historically there have been anywhere from thirty to forty servers embedded into trick bots configuration <hes>. So it's an encrypted file that trick about reads once it executes on victim host and then tries to connect to one after another to see you know if any are online and then once they're online they sort of get instructions from there and then you go about their their evil business. What's changed is as a number of those servers have been taken off. Line the amount of services that we've seen included in every configuration has dropped significantly <hes>. I think it dropped to a minimum of around twelve servers <hes>. And then jump back up to around sixteen. The last time. I checked i was about two days ago. What's interesting about including all those servers is that it does tip to us. They at least that they have some amount of control left on the servers. They've they've played a little bit with the protocol that they use to communicate <hes>. They've used <hes>. Instead of traditional servers they've used a tour onion sites of the alleged dark web server not available <unk>. Not accessible normal web browser but requires using a tour browser or a tour based connection to connect to it using that as a fallback command and control channel. And so it's been it's been pretty interesting watching them scramble. The sort of piecemeal their botnets back together.

U.S. charges Russian military hackers

"A story for you. May Two thousand seventeen voters in France went to the polls to elect a new French president just like in our election the before then Russian intelligence agencies in the Russian government played hard in the French election that year russian-owned websites pushing outlandish rumours about the centrist candidate Emmanuel macron. Those rumors were then processed into pieces Russian state media outlets. macron's rival was a far right candidate named Marine Le Pen she had inherited from her Holocaust denying Father Control of Francis Post. World War Two Fascist Party. So it was the neo-fascist party running against macron. Lapenne far-right neo-fascist campaign was explicitly bankrolled by a Russian state controlled bank. Marine Le Pen went to Moscow and met with Vladimir Putin at the Kremlin during the campaign. This was not subtle. But it was. Too much for Russia to pass up a divisive racist far right fascist candidate injecting chaos into the elections in a major. European. Democracy in twenty seventeen that's like catnip to Russia. Right? They want to undermine democracy everywhere. They will undermine Western countries in general however they can. But Russia's saved its boldest move for the eve of that French. Just two days before the vote. Russian. Hackers part of the same Russian military unit that had disseminated hacked democratic emails during the twenty, sixteen American election the before. They dumped tens of thousands of files, online, nine gigabytes of stolen emails and other information all hacked from Emmanuel Macron's campaign, and that might have become the dominant news story of the final weekend of that campaign. Before French voters went to the polls. It might have actually ended up upending that election if it were not for a quirk of French law, which imposes a media blackout on anything relating to the campaign for full day before voting starts all the way through until polls close on election day. That blackout period in French law precedes this whole scandal with Russia messing with the French election. But it ended up saving the day. The material that was hacked by Russian intelligence got posted online and France just hours before media blackout period began just minutes before the blackout began at midnight that night the macron campaign issued a statement warning that the hackers had inserted forged fake documents into the hack stolen material they pleaded with the media to not report on that junk. And the media didn't. They stuck to the rules. And in the end, Emmanuel macron beat the far-right neo-fascist Marine Le Pen by more than thirty points. And there's a couple of reasons for us be thinking about sort of relearning the story of that. Two thousand seventeen French election right now one is that the intelligence community is raising the alarm that Russian intelligence is executing an operation just like the one they did in France on us right now the supposedly Biden scandal that Rudy Giuliani has been shopping the scandal he. Managed to get printed in the New York Post which president trump has been gleefully promoting ever since including posing with a copy of that paper in the Oval Office that junk that Giuliani has been promoting is being actively investigated by federal investigators as potentially part of a hostile foreign influence operation illegally targeting our election and the intelligence community is investigating this Johnny on the spot. In part because they saw this coming in advance, this is in the New York Times last week quote, The Times reported last January the Ukrainian company were Hunter Biden was once on the Board respond had been hacked by the same Russian Intelligence Unit that hacked the Democratic National Committee in two thousand, sixteen last month US intelligence analysts contracted several people with knowledge of that hack. Asking them for further information because they picked up chatter that stolen burris, my emails would be leaked in the form of an October surprise among their chief concerns was that the burris material would be leaked alongside forged materials and it it's to hurt Biden's candidacy as Russian. Hackers did when they dumped real e mails alongside forgeries ahead of the French elections in two thousand seventeen. So that's what they did to Macron in two, thousand, seventeen they hacked all install all of this stuff from his campaign than they mixed it up with Ford stuffing dumped it right before the election. That's what the US intelligence community said. They believed was going to happen with Barista and sort of October surprise firm Rudy Giuliani. Thank right on time Rudy Giuliani shows up some emails from a mysterious source that are totally unverified and unverified able and only one Rupert Murdoch owned right wing tabloid will air that junk. Put it in their paper. So. That's one reason. The Russian operation in the two thousand, seventeen French election newly relevant to our lives right now, the Russians may be trying that exact same trick all over again except we don't have media blackout rules. The other reason that that two thousand seventeen Russian operation in France is newly relevant. Is that the guys who did it just got indicted by the US Justice Department today? Here they are the Russian military intelligence hackers who carried out that operation to interfere in the French election in two thousand seventeen the Justice Department says in the indictment today that these guys also launched major malware and hacking operations that shut down the power grid in Ukraine that hit the parliament in the nation of Georgia that chemical weapons investigators in the UK and Europe who were looking into the Russian poisoning of former Russian spy, Sergei scruple who was poisoned with a Russian nerve agent on British territory they say, they also orchestrated hacks that hit hospitals in companies. In the United States. They also organize tax that hit the two thousand eighteen winter Olympics quite a list. And? Although. One of the Russian hacker that was indicted today was previously indicted by Robert Muller in two thousand eighteen for his role in the hacking operation against the twenty sixteen election here in the US, today's indictment of these Russian hackers doesn't include any charges related to American election interference this year. That said the election. The American election is two weeks from tomorrow. It's hard to look today's indictment without trying to understand how it relates to our own election and what the Justice Department is trying to signal here. Is that the right way to look at this. Joining us now is Jeremy Bash. He served as chief of staff at the CIA and at the Defense Department under President Obama Jeremy Nice to see. Thanks for making time. It, Rachel. So, this is a lot. Going on the surprise announcement today from the Justice Department about the indictment of these Russian hackers when you look at this with your background in intelligence and your understanding of what Russia has done to target our democracy and others. What do you think is most important here for people to understand. Well I think was most important is that the GRU this Russian military organization that was responsible for the two thousand Sixteen Hacking Dump Operation Against the Democrats that was responsible for the two thousand seventeen election appearance in France as you noted, and is responsible for these militias cyber attacks globally including, against us, hospitals and. They are very active. They're very capable and they are in fact probably behind this this Russian. Intelligence operation at least a looks and appears to be Russian intelligence operation targeting the Biden campaign. Last. Week Andrew Weisman, who is part of the Miller investigation wrote in Law Fair about the decision that was made by bill bar earlier this year this spring to drop criminal charges against Russian companies that had participated in the attack on our election in two thousand sixteen and that didn't actually get a lot of attention when it happened in March I think in part because the country was overwhelmed by what was starting to happen to us in terms of covid why spent makes the case that before may have acted essentially improperly in dismissing those charges essentially signaling to Russia that the. US Criminal Law wouldn't be used against them as a tool if they wanted to interfere in the election this year I'm wondering if this might be a signal in the other direction, if this might be some sort of signal to brushback rush intelligence ahead of what appears to be their ongoing efforts to boost trump in his reelection effort. Hartono, racial. But what we do know is that there are mixed signals being sent by the US government here. Today we have the Justice Department indicting Russian hackers, but you've got the president of the United States welcoming condoning what looks apparently like a Russian intelligence operation targeting the Biden campaign remember Rachel that Rudy Giuliani. In Kiev, with Andrei Dirk Catch Ukrainian lawmaker who has been assessed by US intelligence and announced by our Treasury Department to be a Russian asset for the last decade. Giuliani goes to Kiev meets with Dir cash and he comes back and low these many months later, Giuliani surfaces up with these a very mysterious emails. So every Intelligence Professional Rachel that I've talked to the last twenty four hours says that this walks like a Russian intelligence disinformation campaign this talks like a Russian intelligence to information campaign. This is most likely Russian intelligence is permission campaign against the Biden team.

WFH From Barbados

"Global tourism as you might expect, has been way down this year the number of people going overseas on vacation declined by a massive sixty, five percent in the first half of the air. But this hit was especially bad for Barbados the Caribbean island nation has built its economy around tourism, and normally this is a really great business more than a million tourists typically visit. Barbados. And they're all these businesses that depend on these tourist hotels and restaurants and local farms that supply the restaurants and all of these people count on the tourism sector. It makes about a third of Barbados's GDP as people started to halt their plans for trips to places like Barbados those jobs and businesses, they took a huge hit. So the country's Prime Minister Mia Motley. She had an idea and I spoke to UC skeet about this. He's the US director at the organization that promotes tourism to Barbados Prime Minister Recognize that we have an opportunity to welcome these individuals who are working. Remotely to come to Barbados enjoy all that the Allen has to offer and stole be able to work. So what it did is it allowed us to look beyond short-term visitor and create lungs. The visitor is on the island and the government developed a special new visa twelve months long, and they're just a few conditions you have to work for your employer back home ending at least fifty thousand dollars a year that is, you know you're not getting a job in Barbados also, you pay two thousand dollars application fee and you need your own health insurance which travel insurance can typically cover. Application is approved Bam. You can sit up let up in a hammock overlooking the Caribbean on horseback. Emiko horseback take your pick and you know probably not very surprisingly daring after having seen this ad over two thousand people like, Sean. Have applied for the welcome stamp visa and it doesn't sound like a ton but using explained why this is actually a really important economic boost, they have to find a place to live. They have to eat this hurtling going to participate in a lot of the attractions and activities in addition to that. Then no become because I can guarantee you want to come into the welcome stamping Barbados they're not gonNA WANNA leave. So they're also become a part of the voice that tells their friends and families at that. You must visit Barbados and I think that then has even longer term benefits and I. Think that's certainly a win win. But of course, this question comes up in my head, right like, could it really be this easy I? mean if it is maybe the entire population of the world is going to end up in the Caribbean. But to check this out, we went to talk to Tim Burgess. He's the CO founder of an international workforce company called Shield Jimbo he's working internationally is not always so simple. There's there's a whole lot of compliance and I guess I. Sort of administrative issues that people don't think about in this context. Tim says, there are two main obstacles to international working from home. So first of all, if you're going for a long length of time like at least six months, you have to start thinking about taxes. If you're for example going to Mexico you might become tax resident in Mexico, your employment say hold on now where liable for having employees Mexico, and of course, this is not just income tax right? Example, Hanshin State health insurance. Yeah. All the different components of social security a few moved from the US. To Franz the employees accost goes from about fifteen percent on top of the salary to forty seven to fifty percent on top of the summer. So it's not as easy as just going to a we work in Paris. It's a very gray area. Barbados got around this particular snag. They said, you do not need to pay taxes in Barbados with this particular visa just keep paying your taxes and social security to home country but Tim. Raises a second issue, which is if you'll say working for an American company but want to work overseas the company you work for start to need to comply with your new countries, regulations and labor laws like say, maybe you'll be forced to take the minimum twenty four vacation days required by Jim. Laurie. If you relate to Berlin, which would be sad. Yeah. I mean that would be a struggle, but I would be up for tackling that. So Barbados, really turned this gray area into a very simple and clear invitation to remote worker. They saw this. And so Darian you know we started talking about this and we were wondering like, is this the wave of the future? I really hope and my hope is that people take it up. It would be a really wonderful initiative and a great model that people could follow and a lot of other countries have realize there is a huge opportunity here Estonia has launched its own visa. So has Bermuda and so Shaun the business intelligence analyst from Charlotte she's a tastes case company said, yes, and to visa was approved and the horses in hammocks wait exactly excited I I couldn't believe it. I was like Oh my God he's actually going to happen. I'm excited to Sean paid her two thousand dollars visa fee, and she now has her flights booked for just a couple of weeks from now what are you looking forward to most about? Barbados the food. The food tasting. Some new flavors there flying fish is like their. Go to national dish it's something called flying fish, which I have no idea

The Air Force Struggles With Diversity. Can The Space Force Do Any Better?

"The newest branch of the military just promoted its first female three star general. The US Space Force also recently appointed the nation's first all women space operations team. Top space force leaders say gender and racial diversity is a core part of the mission. But his Colorado public Radio's Dan Boyce reports, some female veterans are skeptical. First Lieutenant Kelly McKay serves with the all female Space Operation Squadron stationed at Schriever Air Force Base near Colorado Springs, The squadron command's one of the country's GPS satellites. I obviously never gotten work on all female crew for these were women that I've I wanted to work with their close friends of mine and co workers. The work of the space force is almost entirely digital Space Force members operates satellites and other national space assets from computers down on Earth. Lieutenant McKay says an all female squadron makes a bold statement for the military's news branch. I'm hoping that women will see that they have more opportunities, and they might have realized growing up as long as they're actively seeking out the women to come there. They have a great opportunity to be the the service that leads the way Don Christensen is president of the nonprofit Protect Our Defenders. The group focuses on reducing discrimination in the military. The space force grew out of the Air Force last December, Christensen says It's continuing the airforce tradition of a better gender balance than the other branches. But he worries the space force could continue another worrisome course when it comes to racial disparity there force with worst in analyzing military data Person's sins team found black airman 70% more likely than their white peers to get court martialed or receive other punishments. The air Force is own data shows that trend getting worse in recent years. Nevertheless, in just the last few months a couple of milestones confirmation of the first Black Air Force Academy superintendent and then the first black Air Force chief of staff General Charles Q. Brown Jr. Here's Brown's own candid assessment of the challenges ahead. I can't fix centuries of racism in our country, nor can I fixed decades, discrimination may have impacted members of our Air force. How much to make of these nominations depends on who you talk to. While we're very proud of gentle brown. It's It's so even Pacheco is a recently retired air force commanding officer. Photo op Shea. We like, like people. We like minority. Yea, we promoted on so don't complain anymore, okay? And we're like, Okay, So what? We want to see his action. What policies? Are you going to drive? What changes? Are you going to drive? She argues the ways to report discrimination in the space force are all inherited from Thie Air Force. And if you don't restructuring I honestly I don't. I'm not sure that you'll be able to restructure. I don't know. I just think they might continue get away with it. Unfortunately. Pacheco says As discrimination charges work their way up the chain of command senior officers often suppress reports to avoid looking bad themselves. They're going to be shaped to encourage honest communication, the space force's chief diversity and inclusion. Officer Carrie Baker says They've already placed heavy emphasis on developing open minded leaders and pushing them to learn about unconscious biases, even to the point where one should be careless enough to Speaks to their leadership about concerns that they have without concern of retribution. Baker says. The space force has targeted outreach initiatives to recruit women and people of color. Keep your eye on us. We're going to make you proud Tanya would nightie professional.

Not getting a fair seat at the table, having to prove myself constantly having to prove my technical ability Trying to prove how smart I am. If if you will constantly challenged by my male colleagues, she's pleased to hear about that new all female space force team. She's still not sure it's a sign of systemic change. She compares the all female crew to the Tuskegee Airman, Those heralded black fighter pilots from World War two. That was an experiment. But was it sustainable? You know, do we still have that level of diversity? Now? She wonders if the space force doesn't address fundamental challenges involving race and gender. Will those experiments ever lead to anything beyond history? Making headlines for NPR news? I'm Dan Boys in Colorado Springs.

"This is a Bloomberg money minute. The $900 billion US grocery market is thriving because of the pandemic. But the nation's biggest grosser Wal Mart is largely missing out and losing market share to tradition. Colonel grocers like Kroger and Albertsons. One reason some mainstream chains stopped offering discounts because of strong demand for food. By selling more items at full price. They're making more money and grabbing market share Plus. Bloomberg intelligence analyst Jennifer Bar Tash is says consumers may prefer shopping in stores with fewer people. Supermarkets in general are much smaller than, say, a Wal Mart and so they're faster to shop in, and she says local stores 10 To play a large role in communities and they do a lot to reinforce community service and helping other, she says.

How Governments Are Using Cellphone Data for Surveillance

How Governments Are Using Cellphone Data for Surveillance

"Download an APP whether it's a game, a run tracker, or even whether you make it a prompt asking you to let the APP. Access your location. It's probably not news to you that if you say yes, the advertising industry then collects that location data from you packages it up and sells it, but you might not know that they're not just selling your data to marketers and other people who want you to buy stuff. People in the advertising industry are also selling it to the government are Puerto Byron Tau has been looking into this and he joins us now to explain. Byron, thanks for being here. So you reported on a team of researchers in Mississippi, they use some of this location data to track a group of people in Russia. Where all did they trace them? So. This was part of an open source intelligence project paid for by the US military, and these academic researchers were looking at drone test sites and other military facilities across Eastern Europe, including in Russia, in as part of this experiment, they were looking at where people present at these drone test sites are military bases were going where they traveling back to Moscow where they meeting with members of the Russian presidential administration or foreign officials. Simply, where were they? They going and by tracing their cellphone movements. They were able to find out a lot. One person that they were tracking went on vacation to Cuba another person went to this sort of key geopolitical strategic vision in Azerbaijan others went to other secure Russian military districts. You know what we found was that it was pretty easy and pretty extraordinary to get a level of detail about the movement of these purportedly Russian military officials and or military. Civilians with access to military facilities and track them around the world. So like you said these guys were researchers. They were academics. They were not intelligence analysts. So, what were they doing with this data? So this data comes from a commercial vendor. A company called Babel Street which is publicly in the business of monitoring social media. They offer a lot of services to local police, departments and governments at all levels to monitor unfolding situations, but they also sell this little. Little add on called locate ax, which basically is a feed of data drawn from the advertising industry on millions, if not hundreds of millions of cell phones and these researchers partnered with Babel Street. They got some funding from the US army, and that's how they were able to pull this kind of data and do this kind of analysis. And what exactly were they setting out to prove? Well, they were trying to demonstrate to the army, the power and the usage of open source intelligence so the kind of data that you can buy on the commercial market stuff like cell phone data, but there's also all sorts of other data out there so social media data data from Web Forums photos that people upload to social media sites. All of that has real legitimate intelligence value. If you know where to look and what questions to ask, and so, this project was part of an effort to show the military just how powerful this kind of data could be. I think consumers have kind of a low level understanding that whatever they do on their phones might be you know data being collected about them, and they kind of see it as something. That's probably just annoying. It's a way for you know advertisers and marketers to target us with hyper specific advertising. How common is this other more governmental use will? We don't know the? The extent of it, but it does seem like from my reporting. The this kind of acquisition of commercial data is of increasing interest to governments around the world, not just the American government, but others and it raises real privacy considerations right because when you consent to an APP tracking you, you may have some understanding that marketers are looking at this data, but most consumers. Consumers don't understand the flow of data in this world in this ecosystem means that pretty much anyone can get it from foreign intelligence services to their domestic political opponents to you know major intelligence agencies, law, enforcement agencies, and so this date is all out there you know in some cases. It's quote unquote anonymous. It doesn't linked to any one specific name, but patterns in the. The world, tell people a lot about you. An analysts can use movement data for example to figure out where phone is at night, and that is a strong clued aware that person lives, and can be cross checked against property records, so all this raises a lot of interesting and unresolved privacy questions about just how much notice consumers have about what's happening to their data? This legal. That's a good question. courts really haven't grappled. With these questions in general, the government has taken the position they've consumers opt into tracking. By and large purchase of that kind of data is lawful, but we're really on in a new frontier, because courts really haven't had to consider exactly what it means to be carrying around a tracking device, a microphone and a camera that could be turned on by adversaries or hackers, or even foreign governments all the time, and so the privacy impacts of this are just beginning to be examined by lawyers. Courts privacy advocates in governments. What if these companies said about your reporting about these partnerships with law enforcement? Speaking most of these companies, especially the ones that are selling cell phone data are trying to operate below the radar by and large. They have refused to discuss their products with me. In fact, Babel Street has a confidentiality clause in its standard license agreement that prevents the user from even disclosing the existence of their location data product, and so a lot of this is being done secretly. Even as these companies are telling the government, don't worry. This is one hundred percent you know consumer. Data, it's one hundred percent publicly available no issues here with privacy, and so that's a really interesting paradox that I found as I've gone about reporting nece.

Second-quarter results to reveal dire state of top US banks

"Hit US banks especially hard. We've got earnings coming up, so we'll get another snapshot of how the banks are faring firm or let's bring in military intelligence analyst Allison Williams. So Alice again seems like we just got through bank earnings. And here we are again. Upcoming banks are faring here in this new World Order were in well, I think it's going to be Tough quarter largely driven by provision. Keep in mind versus past cycles. We have a much more pro cyclical affect this time and what that means it's just more up front. No more reserves up front and then sort of releasing on the back end. But I think two key things this quarter one every quarter. We talk about the earnings and we discussed the fact that it's all about the forward. Look. The earnings is a little bit different because after the stress test and the third talking about capping dividends, based on recent income to find a sort of the average of the past 4/4 this quarter is going to be an end. But not just to this quarter. But for the next few quarters, a CZ long Restriction remains in place. So this will give us sort of. Ah look, and the one bank that we'll get the most news about That around is is Wells Fargo. They've already sort of guided the fact that they're going to have Tio most likely cut their dividend. The second thing this quarter will be No. How are things tracking as a lot of these deferrals have sort of come up to there? You know, I guess first roll forward if you will. So you know, immediately. We had all these liberals put in place the 90 day mark. We will know sort of how things shook out as that sort of 90 day. Limite came up on DH shouldn't say limit sort of. I guess it's just a marker because consumers can ask for more time. But the question is, Are they going to ask for more time? Well, they start paying what's gonna happen. That's sort of the pivot point and that will give us an eye into credit so super great points and I guess, Christian saving of CEO of Deutsche Bank said to Bloomberg this week. That he thinks that the second quarter will be the top and loan loss provision. Do you agree with that? So it could be? Of course, it's all going to depend on you know how things take shape from here, Right where Sort of. You know, if you looked at some of the different scenarios and depending on the shape that you see from here, things can just pretty dramatically. But, you know, let's say that we are looking at their most optimistic scenario and again, I would remind you about the counting right to the provisions will be the highest in the last quarter in this quarter. That doesn't mean we've even started to see the actual charge off yet, But we will see bags sort of provisioning for you know, the very negative environment that we have now it wasn't sort of factored into the reserves at The first quarter, but obviously since on the economic picture has gotten worse. So after these 2/4 you know, we should be fairly well provisioned for the best case economic scenario, and then you know, obviously it's going to depend on what happens from here. So, Allison, you know you talk about those You know the test about whether these companies can keep or have cut their dividend. Is that pride maybe some negative incentive for them to kind of goose their GPS numbers here for the next couple quarters so that they can continue to pay dividends. Or is that not a risk that investors are really worried about? From a theoretical standpoint? I think one could make that argument. But I would say that if you look at, you know, you know, First of all, I think it's the final decision on dividends aside from Wells, which had a sort of a unique case of a higher And Pierre payout for across the U. S banks and also earnings that were hit much harder than there are other bags. I think they're in a unique spot, but the other banks, you know, the dividend passed already give them a fair amount of room and so even if you sort of are very harsh In your earnings outlook. They should be fine. And I think if things did get, you know, you get dramatically worse you could be dealing with, you know, regulatory and political pressure ahead. The key thing that came out with a stress test is basically You're the Fed, making Everybody resubmit that plans and what that does mechanically is. It doesn't allow the bags to do like a big share repurchase, which I don't think anyone would anyway. But it sort of precludes bank from taking any measures, and the Fed basically left their options wide open to come in and require Into basically increased capital requirements or do other things. So I don't think that the Fed has sort of set this restriction, but it's not gonna be the be all and end all. But I wonder how that feeds into the compound sort of expense ratios because some out there like Sheila Bair used to run the FDA, C says, like and actually indenture. Alot, too, is that it shouldn't just stop At buybacks and dividends that it should also be in comp that if you know we're in a really bad time, globally and financially, then you have to have a limit on the kind of conflict in payout, which will tie also into expense ratios. What do you hear about that question? You know, the one thing that I would point out is, you know again, the big difference this cycle vs last cycle. Last cycle, the banks were over leveraged. They were sort of part of the problem, so I think there was obviously a lot of scrutiny around the compensation. This cycle, the back part of the solution. They have very healthy capital levels. The worry is just that, you know we're in this unprecedented downturn and do we need the banks to sort of keep their capital to be ableto lend to the economy, So that's a very different situation. And if you go back to Sort of as I was discussing before banks get into a situation where they have to start limiting payouts. There are some compensation element of that. Um, but I think you know to the extent that the compensation argument I understand some people maybe raising it, but I don't think that's sort of at the heart of the issue as it is sort of in the last crisis. On the overall expend standpoint, right? The banks are trying to do everything they can to help their employees on a broad base. Is there they to varying degrees that that they're not going to lay off people? You know, they tried to give incentives Tio Branch type employees at retail type employees. So that's obviously not the compensation that you're alluding to. But I'm just, you know, sort of framing the bigger picture. I think that at the end of the day, the banks are gonna be interested in doing what's right for the long term, and I think, to the extent that we sort of discussed earlier some of the really negative bearers scenarios. I think thank you know, are going to want to keep paying out. Their shareholders will fight to pay their dividends, but they're not going to be and they're going to keep track of what's happening in the environment and respond accordingly as well.

"Our guest of professional intelligence analyst and the call from Bruce in des Moines Iowa good evening Bruce Hey Jim how you doing fine thank you thanks for having me on you know at I'm looking forward to talk to Brian Boyd I have a wonderful grin and his last name is voided and I'm really looking forward to his inside well it is available for you right now Bruce so what do you have for him okay you know I've been working in the program and you know I I wanted to I want to bounce I want to bounce off two things that have been said tonight plus something that I've recently and here they are they're just three and you know number one you earlier in the in our discussion yeah in our discussion thank you you know E. called for Riyan excuse me reform beyond reason ability and Brian you know you know recognized that have to be totally reformed I heard it in you know the news that the United States Congress was trying to create was creating register creating legislation to create a registry policemen with a national registry with policemen with violent actions that is correct there have been a bad call and let's let our guests to discuss that that very notion are Brian the notion of such a national registry which seems to have life I gather rather bipartisan support your your your thoughts about that and and beyond that I suppose what you do with that at a national level since most of the offenses are going to be state offenses unless you get into some some of civil rights action but most of the offenses of whatever they may be assaults whatever our our state offenses so your thoughts about a national registry well a national registry with police behavior that horrid is not affected the do anything if it if they get to that level that they have to be put in the national registry benefits well beyond the time of train they should have been fired disciplined or arrested themselves so it doesn't make sense to me to have a national registry because they get on that list you have to be pretty bad and if you think about this guy out there in Minneapolis who had eighteen complaints and most got resolved because the labor union gap also who would decide along the line to put in in the registry now we have a national registry of sexual offenders you can go on Google they ever find out who in your neighborhoods a sexual offender left little benefit because they've served time and they've been arrested but I don't see where it would do any good I think what you need to do is give the power to the city in the state to have a quality policing system quality training and be effective in hiring and firing yeah to be hired and fired just letting out that plan and keep in mind here of course is if you have such a national registry again of people who in almost every instance will have violated a state or local law or ordinance the feds could do anything but simply say oh Milwaukee Phoenix I notice you have a copier with the seven violations you might wanna look into that and they would say okay we will don't worry about it we got it covered the death of the feds could do and that that I think is an important factor to it to keep in mind David in Creston Iowa now hello David Waregem sometime in the fall uhhuh in order to give one you were talking about day of proper training for the all the stuff well I remember the mark why is the engine on television and stuff already had water cannons and you know all the all of them back here and get one a break up or wired work form four sure clout they could turn the whole bottom okay that's going on well maybe more more vulnerable to the arrest okay and it's a safe way to do it analysts to guide insisted on something and then tries the mother no perfectly safe my ways of applying anything non lethal I can certainly tell you why it has been used because of the optics because too many people in remember the fire hoses used against demonstrators in Selma Alabama even though it's been over half a century ago and that's why they don't even though of course the the problem with Selma was the use of a fire hose it was what else took place down there but as a non lethal method I think that the you could certainly say something off for the use of water as opposed to let's say bullets for example be tear gas just pleasant pepper spray isn't present pleasant to rubber bullets aren't pleasant bean bag rounds are a pleasant Brian well yeah that's the those are tools that were brought in the law enforcement arena to avoid being shot okay users were designed to put down a vehicle so that she would show him so now a cop at the page of the reach for and that didn't exist maybe ten years ago the part of the issue and if I could sort of use a real world example is what has been the news about what happened at Lafayette park a lot of people are blaming on those who don't know that's the of the park directly across the street from the White House but go ahead my parents were married at St John's Episcopal Church over there after World War two the paradox is this when you read the FAQ and you go back and dig into the information and stay away from the the misinformation of the media and you realize that the park police patrol the park the DC police patrol the streets they could service protect the buildings they Lafayette park thing was done because they were burning the church and burning a historic building on the grounds and after three days of riots it was decided to move the people away now how do you do this unless you got more cops than protesters now I heard the media say these were protesters now they were actual antagonised they were throwing hard objects bricks and mortar and and torn up stones against the police what do you do to protect yourself and your copper shield and how depressed back a crowd which is bent on violence and not demonstration so you only have a couple of choices you could use some pepper gas which is non late they could use water but they were trying to quell a dangerous situation where normal demonstrators are mixed in with professional antagonised and then gives you one overthrow our government they don't care about the black lives they're taking advantage and hijacking the black movement and then and this is what the Attorney General said when he was on TV he had no idea the press was gonna do that their only concern was protection of the buildings protecting the park and they were moving a larger perimeter so they couldn't be any danger to the White House or to the north building right and then trump decided on his own he didn't tell the AG internal walk so when you look at the facts of it in the in the the Democrats was there was a photo op no that's that's the first one to do I know twenty one I you can certainly while he had every quote legal right so to do you could you could see where where it was going and it wasn't with probably the smartest thing that he's ever done but then the the president acts impulsively I.

A. I. medical Virginia dot com or give them a call seven oh three seven six three zero zero one six P. A. I. medical Virginia dot com traffic and weather the day's top stories and you this is the Larry o'connor show and we are talking about today's testimony rod Rosenstein before the Senate Judiciary Committee and there's a couple of more things that we need to ask John Solomon editor in chief of just the news just the news dot com one question John what's next here I'm hoping that this isn't the only witness that Lindsey Graham brings forth who can we expect from this August committee yes I think the next thing that will happen it will be a series of closed door interviews right they'll be people like the bill Priestap the people who are between each track and Andy McCabe inside the FBI that they'll try to get to the intelligence analysts the agents who worked the for in case you are recommending closing it down and I think I will set the stage for the bigger fish to come and I think at the end of the day Lindsey Graham's gonna want to bring in James Comey and McCabe into question today with evidence we didn't have in twenty seventeen to twenty eighteen when they last were put under oath and I think those will be the big money hearings whether they're in late summer or early fall I think those are going to be some of the the more momentous moments and then on the declassification front here something that I would keep an eye on hi I'm hearing from multiple sources that a referral that Devin Nunez made when you sell house intelligence committee chairman that laid out flaws with the CIA's analysis of the Russia evidence meaning the conclusion they came to what is known as intelligence compact media intelligence committee assessment the I. C. A. that that referral identifying flaws in the trade craft and flaws in the evidence could get the classified in the next few weeks that's going to take the light not just on the FBI's gonna move it over to the C. I. A. a little bit and that could be a very interesting summer development for us well because the last we heard of Mr Durin's investigation I ended there have been a whole lot of leaks but what we did here reported John Solomon was that he seemed to be really focusing with his grand jury on John Brennan the former CIA director yeah and specifically the questions of the I. C. A. was there pressure applied to come to the most controversial conclusion everybody's in agreement that Russia did that asking about the Facebook ads but the part that's most in dispute and now with the new evidence it seems to be kind contradicted is that Russia specifically was trying to hurt Hillary Clinton and help Donald Trump as we know now evidence has come out showing they were leaking dirt to Hillary Clinton on trump if you try to help trump get elected you would not presented me with dirt so I think that that assessment and whether political pressure was applied to have that come up before Obama left office that's a core part of both the congressional investigation and I'm also told from my sources the Durham investigation that was such a big part of that narrative out of the remaining weeks of the Obama administration post election and as a writer to be part of it media narrative was not just that there was Russian meddling but it was specifically to help Donald Trump it laid that predicate that trump was Putin's guy one other thing I think frankly in all of this is the most important John Solomon you have great contacts at the FBI and the justice department I think the American people would be forgiven if they watch all of this and they think that this is business as usual but this is how the justice department conducts itself if a U. S. attorney or an assistant US attorney has an application for a FISA warrant is it is it standard for it to just be kind of a perfunctory function or is there a vigorous investigation that goes on is their vigorous questioning before that signature is put down to make sure that this sort of thing doesn't happen I think that's something that we need to know yeah I also if this is something that transcends politics if you're a Democrat independent or Republican the most awesome powers of the intelligence community are often exercise with the FISA warrants that can intrude on your privacy without any legal representation on your civil liberties on your your private conversations and so what have we found out what we found out that the F. B. I. routinely doesn't follow its own procedures that's no longer dispute and that includes the F. B. I. I'm Chris Reyes wants the new FBI director despite that it all happened in Kobe we also found out that unmasking occurs under the names of people who then say I did make those requests we have the former ambassador to the U. and Samantha power three hundred plus I'm asking the question she said that in Assam so there's an incredible Lucent's about something that should have been the most sacred of of liberties right our privacy our freedom of speech and there are clear red flags at the intelligence community the justice department FBI aren't paying close enough attention and so far I don't think people in the Senate and house and I talked to feel that the problems have been addressed yet and that's a scary thought sure is and that's one of the reasons why this is such an important story of well beyond the fact that the trump administration was partially crippled for the first three years of the presidency but also the systemic issues that really are and by the way prices they're important national security so we are if we want to keep them let's not abuse them in this way John Solomon always a great conversation thanks so much for joining us thank you Sir have a good day it's five twenty five now.

"Virginia hello hello stealin full sweetie all over each and every week at this time tapping into our Bloomberg intelligence analyst covering some two thousand companies and one hundred thirty industries we talk a lot about the fallen angels in the credit issues for companies in the travel and leisure industry eccentric but what about for the industrials for more murky see welcome Bloomberg intelligence analyst eleven ten he's director of credit research at Bloomberg intelligence social if you're industrial and cyclical company this really is not good for you so with the credit profile here yeah you're totally right and it's going to get and it's bad and it's going to get worse unfortunately if you look at that past downturns in the industrial sector the multi industrial companies like G. E. and Honeywell and everything their earnings tend to fall about fifteen percent and a cash flow about thirty percent but for the machinery name kind of like the cat and packed cars and dealers that's like fifty percent drop in even and from a credit standpoint that has a very negative impact implications so do I know during recessions you credit analyst become extremely popular with investors because it's not so much the earnings power this company it's just tell me about the balance sheet tell me about the liquidity so just give us kind of a general sense going into what is certain to be a recession of undetermined length but it's me very sharp on the down low word sliding Q. two we're hearing that from a lot of the account I kind of miss how do you think a duster Marika's balance sheets are sitting right here B. R. in the pharmacy but they're gonna be more credit downgrade alcohol and when I look at the industrial universe that we cover there's about two hundred and seventy billion dollars worth of debt right now that exposed to downgrade meaning that it's either on credit watch negative or had a negative outlook that two hundred seventy billion is up a hundred and a hundred billion since year end but readers have that many mornings that they have to take a look at and I would essentially put that into two buckets there are companies that the bank would be lever active building to their credit ratings and there are other ones where the cyclicality is more than what they have in terms of capacity when I look at those two buckets were looking at maybe another hundred and twenty five billion dollars worth of debt that they have yet to take action on but my guess is they will so you always to the companies that have the worst that profile and then distinguish between those are going to be okay and those are actually really in trouble yeah well I think the one that'll be okay are some of the grand names in the industrial space like caterpillar and Deere the have never really tampered with their balance sheets knowing how important having access to capital is for their finance companies so I think those companies will be fine yeah I think when you look at some of the ones where you'll see some problems and we already saw someone General Electric my guess is you'll see some with carrier which issued about nine and a half billion dollars of debt earlier this year I think you can look it means like Helen Brandon Ford is Dan her and and she means all of which did large acquisitions but we haven't had the time to have you know you get earnings and cash flow to retire debt and strengthen our balance sheet those are the ones where they'll be feeling more strain we see a rush really the last several weeks of certain sectors certain companies rushing into the bond market to draw down either draw down the revolvers or or pump some new data in the marketplace to shore up their balance sheets have we seen that in the industrial space over the last month or so yeah you're gonna fall and that totally and they've been about seventy billion dollars worth of.

"On the bird radio we'll be here each and every week at this time tapping for Bloomberg intelligence analyst covering some two thousand companies and one hundred thirty industries worldwide well usually if you want safety in some kind of self a good weeks ago due to ladies reads not so much this time around we're joined now by Jeffrey Lang bomb a senior analyst for REITs at Bloomberg intelligence so just set the stage for us here Jeffrey what happened with read so why are they so bad right now the concern is obviously that some component of their rental Lincoln is going to disappear at least for some period of time and then that obviously has ramifications on the dividends and dividends are a key component of the total return that investors in REITs expect and so if you're you know depending on your outlook for what cash flows due and what dividend do it's hard to get too comfortable with treats at the current time so Jeff you've been covering reached a long time the sector all aspects of the sector how bad do you think it's gonna get what percentage were like what your downside scenario here's a model out cues two and three maybe yeah well so this is very different than any type of downturn we've seen in the past right I mean even if the two thousand eight two thousand nine downturn was pretty deep and pretty long but driven by a very different type of scenario and so it's very hard to compare this to anything in the past looking at what the outcome might be here it really is going to vary across the different property sectors some sectors have you know very little income coming in some some tenants have very little income coming in meaning there's going to be very little rampage retail hotels are the two obvious ones that come to mind something like office or residential it's a little harder to to figure because you know not everybody's unemployed some boot camp probably large components still a bit of the renter base can still pay the rent and on the on the office side you know a lot of the a lot of the company a lot of job losses really aren't office using job losses and so on you know different it may still get paid at least for some period of time it really depends on how long this lasts on the flip side say I'm a bit small business or an office business or I'm just a person that can't pay my rent and I wind up not paying for a few months do I then make that up and a mind then required to pay those back months or is this just gonna be lost revenue again that's going to vary by segment and it's been a very in some cases by landlords so the the anytime you default on a rent obligation you trigger a negotiation with the landlord and in this case we we what we're seeing it though the larger better capitalized landlords are probably going to be more willing to work with their tenants and either grant extensions or you know grant reductions something to to keep the tenant in place and hopefully last till we get past the worst of that and then whether or not you were expected at the tenant to make up what you missed again that really is going to depend on the negotiation with the landlord you know what we've seen so far from government from what the government has done is you know on the record in the residential rental side we do have backstops in place for for apartment landlords who has you know government backed mortgages those renters can get extensions forbearance at first some period of time and the and the landlord is not is not responsible for making mortgage payments during that period of time so we'll see whether that gets extended into commercial space as well in order to avoid having a major meltdown of financial system when landlords all sudden can't pay their K. can't pay off their loans and then that becomes more of a financial problem there's a region allocated to the real estate business and is also originality to the spread of the virus I was a very bad and somehow there is like the the metro New York area for example in New Orleans are you seeing that in the in the trading the valuation of of some of the reach out they're the ones that are maybe in the middle of America that aren't being hit as hard on getting hit as bad in terms of stock prices well well what's interesting actually is some of the some of the landmarks that are focused in those markets outside of the big the key urban clusters are actually getting hit harder in some degrees because that's where a lot of the job losses are happening right the job losses are our retail and hospitality a lot of that is not taking place in the New York City or San Francisco and so that's that's flowed through to some of the companies that own assets outside of the urban clusters but did you know New York is is definitely getting hurt as well obviously there is significant fear of of being changed to what New York might look like coming out of the there is already on that the death of of office users and residents from New York is because it was so expensive and and that could continue as well and so so there there's some speculation of you know a permanent changes resulted if it's really hard to make that kind of forecast at this point but it's certainly possible I thank you so much longer intelligence analyst Jeffrey Lang von park we do like a happy segment and see what happens I don't know it just lets us talk about toys that are it's a tough time for the happy segments coming up on the program merging markets they could be in trouble as well it's all about their currencies guess not happy segment there okay you're listening to the word intelligence on the brick radio providing in depth research and data on two thousand companies and a hundred thirty industries you can access them bring

B. I. with their mall many years ago the problem is we tend to ignore a cancer until it's too late I've been witness to several situations in the government where somebody did something that was really messed and it wasn't it wasn't cut off at the end it's a quick minute that's the problem and I'm supposed to last the prize at the two lieutenant colonel Taylor his superior probably have regrets about why they didn't shutting down earlier and in retrospect that's why these gems of come on Twitter saying my god we never knew this guy was that better and unfortunately he got to a position in the government to where he could make an alteration in history you know I mean I could go on forever about certain events will insist I give parks around the country called the history of our intelligence there's nothing that based on four site tell your frustrations and many of our missions and operations throughout the government was just this treasure the fence a lot to do with the state's gonna try to rectify the bomb found that the individual involved in the decision making process that causes the conflagration in this that she I I see the issue here again it should have been done early on but nobody took it as a serious thing and that's why they they can dig my verbal reprimand and I'm sure he probably wishes he had a written reprimand maybe push them out the service early on so if I'm sure they're buy as regrets with those that make Brian I'm wondering is in the time that you spent in this sort of position thirty plus years are there a lot of Alexander vendors out there people just maybe haven't done the thing that made the headlines a made us aware of them I there were some there was times when I was very thankful that I was in the mix I was given pretty good assignments because I had a high degree of integrity and character of the all the jobs I was offered did not exist before I went into the my only apply for one job in college that because I think my reputation was good I was a you know I'm a boy scout still I'm a scoutmaster today but I've always believed in doing the right thing and because of that I got very it's offers when I went from just from justice the treasury the defense and even the defense contract the Los may positions I wanna see things happen like this in retrospect I thank them up boy I wish I was there because that would have never gone across my desk over to the White House or to the the generals and commanders just never worked on throwing one things I used to do when I got a report I think there are some C. I. A. B. I a or an a I've always question the source and I had to get higher and higher clearances because people always come back with this you don't have a need for non they so frustrated they lost fighting in the intelligence business well the majority of the people in it are honest people and sometimes they're fond of people get into positions of outlived their superior and that's where these errors happen we are your normal no I I certainly understand what just what you say is a systemic problem that is to say should there be changes in the in the regulations such that let's say the dismissal of an under performer or a bad performer would be more automatic yeah you would hope so you would hope so I've stated in private industry as well when I was a defense that I saw that and then the private industry and I was so upset one they have called the president of the company I was working for a call if you had talked method call somebody up and he came down to fire me they said why are you so upset about that are you getting my memos there's some dishonesty going down it's going to cost you millions of dollars in contracts and we found out he was being told the fire is two step mortgage next nominee for motivated the boss of that project but now you have to stand up on your principles and I think of more more people go into the intelligence failed and they have integrity will have less and less problems you know when I get my talks I traced the issue of a lot of things that occurred in in kind sort of a side bar you ever heard the book killer angels Jim yeah as a matter of fact I have I I don't I listed as I'm not familiar with it but I've heard the title if the required reading at the command and general staff college be a colonel and what it does it talks about the personalities of the generals and colonels on both sides and how battles were decided depending on the mood of the journal of the kernel of the time there's very little to do with tactics or strategic planning and that sort of a vignette on behavior general was drunk when morning made a mistake it cost million tons of lies another guy had a fight with his wife and it for three does that make you understand that people in positions of decision making can alter history because of some personal thing in their private lives but only that there but it's a pretty good interesting piece of a lot of books out there that I recommend the people of the operators by Michael Hastings Michael Hastings was the embedded news reporter with Rolling Stone when he wrote the article the runaway general because amended denigrated by noon Obama the customer because about fire but the book they operate is is worth reading duty by Bob gates traces the decision making on Obama with the bin laden raid and compares the bush it's worth reading because it gives you then yes of how those decisions were made regarding the president was you know our idea that deserves a follow before we take a break it and that is that we all recognize that that human frailty enters into any human decision and that's a given certainly there are various requirements and the regulations policies that to try to minimize that fact it's to a certain extent unavoidable but this this this book sounds as though it explores the distinct possibility that maybe we haven't quite tighten things up enough yeah I agree now all the things I said I may have been on your show when people would come down to brag and we would break them I'm made everybody in pain and that you have signed a non non disclosure policy and I remember some White House people come in and said we work for the white out nice little point like us I don't care who you work for you work for the president you're gonna sign this because if you don't we're gonna prosecute you and I believe that would work I don't know we still do that anymore I don't know that the letter of the law is strong enough to prosecute people who leave that I think it should be severely enforce that you're allowed to come in a in a classified briefing of that magnitude so that you can go after people but in the old days we had to find those agreements and I don't care what people and the lady asked about Ollie north when he came poking his nose down to brag yet no businessman down there and he was flashing as White House credentials and I bother me because he had no need to know on the counter cares about us and you see the history of what that the yes you do what more to come one eight six six five oh Jimbo and will be back on the Jim Bohannon show with Brian Boyd in a moment.

"Latest forty FBI agents nineteen lawyers intelligence analyst and friends accounts of those numbers accurate this is generally have report generally yes is it also true that you issued over to one twenty eight hundred subpoenas executed nearly five hundred search warrants of time more than two hundred thirty order for communication records in fifty can registers that one little fast for me okay in your report Mike was very simple you did a lot of work right yes that I agree Lana subpoenas lot of van Rensselaer subpoenas okay will lock is really low when they search warrants all right one search warrants blood like so you're very thorough the what your opinion very thorough you listed as out in your four correct yes thank you is it true they have is gathered during your investigation of the given the questions that you just answer is it true the evidence gathered during investigation did not establish that the president was involved in the underlying crime related to Russian election interference as stated in volume one page seven we felt that insufficient evidence of presents called culpability so they'll be yes with that rule well I I'm part yes yes thank you isn't it true the others do not establish the present or those close to him were involved in the shards Russian computer hacking reactive measure conspiracies or that the present otherwise unlawful relationships with any Russian officials volume two page seventy six correct I above leave the answer to the a report so yes is that a true your investigation did not establish the members of the trump campaign conspired to coordinated with Russian government in the election interference activity volume one page two volume one page one seventy three thank you yes yes thank you although your report states conclusion is not so specific offense and you said that this morning or a term of art in federal criminal law conspiracy is in the colloquial contexts are collusion and conspiracy essentially synonymous terms your guide to repeat that for me collusion is not a specific offense or a term of art in the federal criminal law conspiracy is yeah and the colloquial contexts known public Condit's collusion collusion conspiracy are essentially synonymous terms correct no if no one page one eighty a volume of one of your report you wrote as defined in legal dictionaries collusion is largely synonymous with conspiracy as that crime is set forth in the general federal conspiracy statute eighteen USC three seventy one and you said at your may twenty ninth press conference and here today you choose your words carefully are you sitting here today testifying something different than what your report states well what I'm asking is if you can give me the citation I can look at the citation and evaluate whether it is okay it let let me just be clear front you stated that you stay within a report I just stated your report back to you and you said the collision collusion conspiracy were not synonymous terms that was your answer was no in that page one eighty volume one of your report its sales as the final legal dictionaries collusion is largely synonymous with conspiracy as that crime is set forth in general conspiracy statute eighteen USC three seventy one now you said you chose your words carefully are you contradicting your report right now now when I read it so you change your answer to yes ma'am well yeah if you look at the language I'm reading your report Sir it's a yes or no answer eight one eighty page one eighty volume one this is from your report correct and I I I leave it with the report so therefore says yes they are synonymous hopefully for finally out of your own report we can put to bed the collusion conspiracy one last question is we're going for it did you ever look into other countries investigated in the Russians interference in our election what other countries investigated or fail knowledge that they had and parents are legend I'm not gonna discuss other matters I'm not a about this event KO as a lease deals here in Los Angeles director Muller as you've heard from the chairman were mostly going to talk about obstruction of justice today but the investigation of Russia's attack it started your investigation is white evidence of possible obstruction is serious to what extent do the Russian government to interfere in the twenty sixteen presidential election I could you repeat that ma'am to what extent the Russian government to interfere in the twenty sixteen presidential election well at it up quickly when I came to computer crimes and the like the government was implicated so you wrote on in volume one that the Russian government interfered in the twenty sixteen presidential election and sweeping and systematic fashion you also described in your report that the van from campaign chairman Paul man a fort shared with a Russian operative clinic the campaign strategy for winning democratic votes in mid western states in internal polling data of the campaign isn't that correct correct they they also discuss the status of the trump campaign and then a Ford strategy for winning democratic votes in mid western states months before that meeting mana for had caused internal data to be shared with clinic and the sharing continued for some period of time after their August meeting isn't that correct accurate in fact your investigation found that manifold brief clinic on the state of the trump campaign and manifolds plan to win the a shin and map reading and compass the campaign's messaging its internal polling data it also includes discussion of battleground states which manifold identified as Michigan Wisconsin Pennsylvania in Minnesota is that correct that's correct did your investigation determined who requested the polling data to be shared with Colin neck well I I would direct you to the report and that's what we have in the report with regard to that particular which we don't have the redacted version this may be another reason why we should get that for volume one based on your investigation how could the Russian government have used this campaign polling data to further its sweeping and systematic interference in the twenty sixteen presidential little bit out of or are a up past fear enough your investigation find that the Russian government perceives it would benefit from one of the candidates winning yes and which candidate would that be well it that would be different a truck correct now the term campaign wasn't exactly reluctant to take Russian help you wrote it expected it would benefit elect Horley from information stolen and released through Russian efforts isn't that correct that's correct no was the investigations of the determination of what was the investigations determination regarding the frequency with which the trump campaign made contact with the Russian government well I would have to refer you to the report on that well we went through and we counted a hundred and twenty six contacts between of Russians or their agents and trump campaign officials or their associates so would that sound about right I I can't say I I I I understand this and sadistic and I believe it yeah I understand the statistic well Mister Miller I appreciate your being here and your report from your testimony and report I think the American people have learned several things first the Russians want to trump to win second the Russians went on a sweeping cyber influence campaign the Russians hacked the DNC and they got the democratic game plan for the election the Russian campaign chairman met with Russian agents and repeatedly gave them internal data polling and messaging in the battleground states so while the Russians were buying ads and creating propaganda influence the outcome of the election they were armed with inside information that they had stolen to hacking from the DNC and they had been given by the trump campaign chairman Mister manning for my colleagues will pope the efforts undertaken a to keep this information from becoming public but I think it's important for the American people to understand the gravity of the underlying problem that your report uncovered and with that Mister chairman I would yield back in listening to Robert Muller testifying before Congress on KFI that was California representative Dr if you'll let me quickly summarize your opening statement this morning seven volume one on the issue of conspiracy the special counsel determine that the investigation did not establish that members of the trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government it's election interference activities and then in volume two for reasons that you explain the special counsel did not make a determination on whether there was an obstruction of justice crime committed by the president is that fair yes Sir all right now in explaining this special counsel did not make what you call the traditional prosecution or declination decision the report on the bottom of page two of volume two resist follows the evidence we obtained about the president's actions and intent presents difficult issues that prevent us from conclusively determining that no criminal conduct occurred accordingly while this report was not conclude that the president committed a crime it also does not exonerate him out at I read that correctly yes all right now your report and today you said at all times the special counsel team operated under was guided by and follow justice department policies and principles so which DOJ policy or principal sets forth a legal standard that investigated person is not exonerated if their innocence from kind of criminal conduct is not conclusive Armand can you repeat the last part of that question yeah which the O. J. policy your principle set forth a legal standard that an investigative person is not exonerated if their innocence from current criminal conduct is not conclusively determined does that language come from director where is the DOJ policy that says that can you get let me make it easier I just right there go ahead it can you give me an example other than Donald Trump or the justice department to determine that in investigative person was not exonerated because innocence was not conclusively determine I cannot but this is you need okay well you can't time is short I've got five minutes let's just leave it you can't find it because I'll tell you why it doesn't exist the special counsel's job nowhere does it say that you were to conclusively determine Donald trump's innocence or that the special counsel report should determine whether or not to exonerate him it's not in any of the documents is not in your appointment order it's not in special counsel regulations it's not in the O. L. C. opinions is not the justice manual and it's not the principles of federal prosecution nowhere to those words appear together because respectfully respectfully director it was not the special counsel's job to conclusively determine Donald trump's innocence or to exonerate him because the bedrock principle of our justice system is a presumption of innocence it exists for everyone everyone is entitled to it including sitting presidents and because there is a presumption of innocence prosecutors never ever need to conclusively determine it now director the special counsel applied this inverted burden of proof that I can't find in you said doesn't exist anywhere in the department policies and used it to write a report and the very first line of your report the very first line of your report says and you as you read this morning it authorizes the special counsel to provide the Attorney General with a confidential report explaining the prosecution declination decisions reached by the special counsel that's the very first word of your report right that's correct here's the problem director the special counsel didn't do that I'm volume one you did on bomb volume two with respect to potential of obstruction of justice the special counsel made neither a prosecution decision or a declination decision you made no decision you told us this morning and in your report that you made no determination so respectfully director you didn't follow the special counsel regulations it clearly says right a confidential report about decisions reached nowhere in here does it say write a report about decisions that won't reach you wrote a hundred eighty pages a hundred eighty pages about decisions that weren't reach about potential crimes that won't charge your decided and respectfully respectfully by doing that you manage to violate every principle and the most sacred of traditions about prosecutors not offering extra prosecutorial analysis about potential crimes that are charged so Americans need to know this as they listen to the Democrats and socialists on the other side of the aisle as they do dramatic readings from this report that volume two of this report was not authorized under the law to be written it was written to a legal standard that does not exist at the justice department and it was written in violation of every DOJ principal about extra prosecutorial commentary I agree with the chairman this morning when he said Donald Trump is not above the law he's not but he damn sure shouldn't be below the law which is where volume two of this court puts him thank you Mister chairman direct mail the morning your exchange with the gentle lady from California demonstrates what is at stake the trump campaign chair Paul man a fort was passing sensitive voter information in polling data to a Russian operative and there were so many other ways that Russia subverted I'll democracy together with the evidence in volume one I cannot think of a more serious need to investigate so now I'm going to ask you some questions about obstruction of justice as it relates to volume two on page twelve a volume two you state we determined that there were says sufficient factual and legal basis to further investigate potential obstruction of justice issues involving the president is that correct and do you have a citation ma'am page twelve volume two the end which pushes that page that is we determine that there was a sufficient factual and legal basis to further investigate potential obstruction of justice issues involving the president is that correct yes your report.

"All right. Candidate. Number one. If you don't talk about it, it isn't real, the White House tried to stop. A State Department senior intelligence analyst. From discussing climate science in congressional testimony this week, according to internal emails and documents, the State Department's bureau of intelligence and research, declined to make changes to the proposed testimony and the analyst rod Schoonover an adjutant professor at Georgetown University was alternately allowed to speak. Ultimately, we allowed him to speak before the house permanent select committee on intelligence on Wednesday. But in a highly unusual move the White House refused to approve Dr Schoonover 's written testimony for entry into the permanent congressional record. So even though he spoke there is no record of it in the official record of congress. I thought that's just a medically. Have they record everything? No. You have to the White House, we, we don't approve that testimony. And so it's like it never existed. That's the reason reasoning according to a June fourth Email from seen by the New York Times was that the science did not match the Trump administration's views, you know what? You're not science. Yeah. Norman j Ornstein president and scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. A conservative policy group said that it is common for the White House to vet agency. Testimony to congress to ensure that it doesn't contradict administration policy, but he said, I have never heard of basic facts being deleted from block or block for him. Testimony. Mr ornstein. Said, you know. I'm worked for a conservative think tank, but it's still the, the, you know, there are facts presented their facts. A White House spokesman said the administration did not comment on internal policy reviews. The national Security Council said it did not respond or didn't respond to requests for comment and a spokesman for the State Department referred questions to the White House. So you get that, that awful, Sarah Sarah Huckabee Sanders, comment. Yeah. Boater candidate number one is well, if you don't talk about it. It isn't real. Bomer candidate. Number two, wow. Good idea. On an arrest warrant was caught in southern California after a motorcycle cop spotted the fake license plate. He put on a tractor trailer. He was driving the counterfeit license plate was playing painted black and yellow and red cali-. Instead of California, it prompted the officer to pull the truck over in the park, you can sign even. See dot com slash live. So the highway patrol saw and said, look, right, the driver appeared to be under the influence of drugs. The motorist had methamphetamines didn't have a driver license and had an active arrest warrant out for him at the time the vehicle, he was driving had to be towed from the scene because it was unsafe to be driven Boehner candidate number two. Good idea. None of the letters are numbers are no are uniform. It's painted clearly.

This indictment by California grand jury comes two weeks after he was charged by federal prosecutors and York they accuse him of trying to extort more than twenty million dollars from the sportswear company Nike ebanon tweeted Thursday that he plans to quote fight all charges and plead not guilty. I'm Meredith would reporting twenty two jimbohannon has more on an issue. Many folks have been discussing around the water cooler as we look at the college admissions bribery scandal, it would appear that the government is really serious about making an example in this particular case of a few people who would be I think defined by many of us as a bit too rich to wealth. And above all to arrogant. We're talking with David Dillard, he is the president of K D college prep online at their name, the initials, K D, college prep dot com. At least what we've seen so far. Does it look as though fame and fortune will not be enough to get some people a relatively free ride. I think so in this case, I think the Justice department is looking for examples, and I think they've got some examples here some bid are going to cooperate in and try to get leniency and others that are going to challenge the system, but it's not going to be pretty in the end, you are certainly in the area of education that you've worked with the people going to college. You have some field for the system when you first heard about this where you shocked surprised or or did you just shrug resignedly and wonder why it took so long? I was surprised with the degree. Of sophistication of this particular scandal. It was somebody that obviously knew the system new it's weak points. And and had the resources to take advantage of it in terms of the preparation that has made for college. This was advanced to me not too many days ago from someone who said, yeah, they they they definitely broke the law and what they did was wrong. But look at all the rich people do getting their kids into the right pre preschool. So they can get into the right pre preschool. So they can get into the right preschool. So they can wind up in the Harvard Business School, and they spend all this money on preparation services in the like, yeah, it's legal. But the fact is that all the we all mouth feelings about any Gallup -tarian, equal start out of the starting blocks. We only think that should apply to other people's kids. I will. And that's that's really what this is. It's not a it's not a college admission scandal, it's not a a testing scandal. It's a it is a a scandal of ethics in in. Morals, and it is a reflection of what is going on in society at all levels. I'm glad that they've been discovered. I'm glad they're cracking down on it because this is not indicative of the system as a whole it's an indication of some bad actors that are being caught and we need to discourage it and look for ways to shore up the system. So that so that this is not happen again that my wife used to be director of admissions at a couple of smaller women's colleges the thing that surprised me the most about this was that from her experience. There are an awful lot of people involved in the admissions process, and you would have to be handing out an awful lot of bribes. It will let that's true they happen to find one of the areas that gets the least amount of scrutiny. Programs in general that they happen to to pick some very obscure athletic areas. They have discovered that there's not enough checks and balances in one of the things that I knew was happening as soon as the scandal broke is there were being meetings at high levels at every university to scrutinize what needed to be short of what potentially could be soft spots at at their institutions across the board.

"Being with us. Welcome into Wednesday. The Senate may confirm William bar as US attorney general as early as today lawmakers yesterday voted largely along party lines to advance his nomination. Meanwhile, the department of Justice that he is poised to inherit is still struggling under the controversy over its handling of two politically charged investigations during the two thousand sixteen election related to President Trump and his democratic rival Hillary Clinton having drawn the ire of Republicans and democratic lawmakers or vowing aggressive oversight and investigation of department activities has his previous government experience prepared him for this. We're joined now by Wall Street Journal reporter Byron tau Byron give us some employment history. He was in the agency in his early twenties. He landed there in nineteen seventy three as an intelligence analyst. And quickly transferred into the office of legislative council. Two years later where he found himself in the middle of this pretty big battle with congress is going to say he he went through kind of a rough period during that time. Yes, exactly. So at this period in the history. Congress was taking pretty aggressive look at some of its practices before that congress largely Lipsey a operate in the dark and do what it wanted to. But there were a series of exposes in the mid nineteen seventies about, you know, about some CA activities abroad. And also the Watergate scandal implicated the CIA. There are also some other sort of you know, the bay of pigs in the sixties which brought renewed congressional scrutiny. And so in nineteen seventy five congress creates these two special committees the church committee in the pike committee, which basically started rummaging through the CIA files and Bill bar was right there in the middle of it. So those committees the church in the pike committees. Essentially did what if you can sort of thumbnail them for us? Sure, they were major investigative committees started by DEM democratic controlled congress. Bring public scrutiny to the activities of the CIA which had previously been pretty closely guarded secrets. So congress insisted that the turnover a lot of its archives insisted that the CIA participate in this process, and eventually issued to pretty scathing reports or several pretty scathing reports on some as activities, and it wasn't just the CIA was the NSA in a number. Basically, our entire intelligence community was looked at top to bottom by both of these committees, and Mr. bars various roles during that period where what because you mentioned he he moved around a little bit. Yeah. So he was basically a pretty junior. Law students slash legislative liaison. So he was in the obstacle legislative council, which is a part of the that deals with congress, and some of these declassified documents and some other old documents, including some oral histories described that he interacted pretty frequently with congressional staff. Help navigate this very significant oversight investigation by congress and eventually became close to the vendor rector of the Sierra, which was George H W Bush because he was helping him prepare testimony and helping brief him when he went to the hill and Bush eventually becomes president, of course. And appoint spill bar to be attorney general in nineteen Ninety-one. So that's sort of how he got him Bush's radar and how he got his start as a lawyer in a law student now he was only there under the George H W Bush administration as attorney general for two. Two years, right? Then what President Clinton put in his own guys is why exactly? So at the end of the Bush administration. He leaves the position Janet Reno fills it, and he goes onto a pretty long distinguished career as a corporate lawyer, he helped telecoms navigate Washington, and now is back for his second go around as attorney general if he's confirmed by the Senate this week, we're speaking with Wall Street Journal reporter Byron tau about his piece entitled attorney general nominee bar. Help navigate CIA through rocky times with congress. You mentioned too that South Carolina, Senator Lindsey Graham has said that morale is low at Justice, and we need to change that is Mr. bar the guy. Well, that's certainly what I think both Republicans and Democrats are hoping, you know, it's actually interesting the parallels between the CIA, then and Justice department now Arthur striking, you know, both agencies. Has come under fire. Both are being looked at pretty closely by sort of hostile congress. And there are some big major institutional questions about the direction of both those agencies. So, you know, William bars experience in the CIA at that point sort of at least can help guide him as he takes the reins of the Justice department, which is under similar scrutiny these days.
