We Don't Know Why John Solomon Was Locked Out of Twitter

"Now. He is the investigative reporter we trust the most, the fact of the new media giant Justin used dot com. John, I asked you before on the rumble feed. I did not expect that answer. Let all of our radio lists know. Are you still off Twitter? I'm still locked out of my account for an offense that they can't even describe what I did wrong. Okay, so everybody's not familiar. What's the backstory? What did you post that got you suspended? I posted a factually accurate story about a study done by an NIH contractor and a respected peer reviewed magazine in the study itself was peer reviewed, saying, hey, there may be some issues with the COVID vaccine affecting the liver tissue or liver DNA. Lots of people have socialized this study. Other news organizations have for some reason I was locked out for doing the same thing. And by the way, we had fear common from the CDC. We did all the things that journalists are supposed to do. This is just censorship for the purpose of censorship, but not for any standards. There's no explanation for it other than they want the silence my voice. Have they are there any instructions? Have you been ordered to delete the tweet or the latest? Now they just said wait 7 days and maybe you'll be out of jail. I don't know. It's crazy. And you know, I've tried to write them saying, please describe my fence, so I don't do it again. You can't get any information back. It's just your shadow boxing with a ghost. You can't tell, but even what you did is I don't tell you because they probably don't know that you did anything wrong.

You are absolutely welcome as one of the few people writing the truth about communist China about farmer about Fauci, the Dory is always open to you and your colleagues at the national park. For those who aren't familiar with your work, I want everybody to follow an athlete right now on Twitter at Natalie G winters. It's also the national pulse dot com. Read her writings, Raheem kassam and colleagues, but for everybody who is new to one on one for our audience of millions of lessons in the views across the country. We like to start with a little bit of an introduction to. So tell us about your long, long career, Natalie. What you're doing right now and how you ended up as an investigative reporter for the national pulse. While growing up, as I'm sure many people listening feel the same way, I was really disheartened with the state of journalism in America. It seemed that there was never any facts being told by people. It was always just narratives and agendas being pushed by these huge corporate media outlets. So I kind of looked around and saw that there really was an open market, not just a market of ideas, but just an untapped avenue for true solid and fact based investigative reporting. So that was kind of what I started doing. I've been doing it for a little over a year now. But as I started to kind of try to untangle and really unweave some of these very, very murky conflicts of interest that we see, not just in our nation's capital, but really throughout the beltway throughout the country and I think amidst this pandemic we're learning throughout the globe. There are some kind of repeat offenders when it comes to the people who are responsible for I think the assault that we've seen on a lot of our freedoms and civil liberties that we've come to expect as Americans. And I think that the Chinese Communist Party, which is what I focus most of my investigative reporting on is responsible for a lot of this, I would say crackdown and just kind of lack of care for I think the principles and fundamentals that made America America

I'm great. Thanks for having me. I'm looking at your latest column in the Washington examiner and by the looks of things over the last week or so, Joe Manchin at least at the Democrat parties probably getting a few lumps of coal in his stocking. Wouldn't that be fair to say? How would certainly be fair to say, I think there's been sort of quiet frustration brewing among the democratic conference for weeks now that Joe Manchin has been through skeptical of the size and scope of the build back better act. And that sort of build over into personal attacks really pushing to scathing statements from progressives in the house. And even in The White House, even from White House press secretary Jen Psaki and Joe Biden himself even attacking mansions personally attacking his wealth, there's a lot of blame focused on him, even though he is not the only Democrat who is uncomfortable with where the negotiations were going. He's sort of the face of opposition to the

Who Is Marine and Journalist Julio Rosas?

"It's an individual who's been on the show before he is a dying breed. Not because he's a marine, but because he's a real journalist. Welcome to America first one on one hula rosas. Yeah, thank you for having me, doctor Burke. All right, so what we like to do at the beginning for those who may not be familiar with our new guests, although we've had the likes of president Trump at Al on the show, is there a little bit of an introduction? So for our millions of lists across the country, who is Julio, what's his background and how did he get to be a journalist and investigative reporter that town hall dot com? So I recently completed serving in the Marine Corps reserves. I got out in this man the active side of the reserves. But I dropped out of college actually after president Trump won in 2016 to become a journalist because I thought, well, the campaign was crazy. People's reaction to the campaign was crazy and now that he's won. It's even crazier. So this is kind of the moment to kind of get in while I can go without a degree. So what were you studying? What were you planning to study and what were your politics back then? So I knew I did want to go to D.C. and I did know that I wanted to get involved in politics. It's not exactly sure, but then I realized I really like writing. So I knew I wanted to get into media, but I was studying business administration just because I think it's a waste of time and money to get a degree in journalism. A young man. But no, but by then for sure I was definitely a conservative by then. And I was for a long time and actually I was the only political one active political one of my family. My family was never really involved in politics, although I can say that's changed. My mom she moved to California a couple years ago in Los Angeles County. And from where? I'm from Illinois. And what happened when she moved to California? So she was by no means a liberal, but she's let's just say she's against Newsom in the recall. Unfortunately, obviously it didn't work out so well. But she is actually moving away. That's what we're spending our last Christmas in Los Angeles because she's moving to Florida.

'Just the News' Founder John Solomon on OSHA's Unconstitutional Overreach

"We always resort to John Solomon to brighten our day. Why? Because he's a truth teller the founder of Justin used dot com investigative reporter extraordinaire. We're going to talk about two big issues today, John welcome. Let me just play a cut that goes straight to the first story from your website. This is of course the current chief of staff of the Biden administration. Ron klain cut 6. I'm quite confident that when this finally gets fully adjudicated, not just a temporary order. Right. The validity of this requirement will be upheld. It's common sense chuck. If osha can tell people to wear hard hat on the job, be careful on chemicals, it can put in place these simple measures to keep our workers safe. This little problem that John, the hard hat is for when you're working and you get to take it off when you go home and it's not injected into your body. We have the piece we're posting right now on our Facebook and Twitter pages from Justin used dot com. Have we ever seen anything of the light 27 states including including three run by Democrat governors have brought suits against the Biden osha regulation? Is this going to stand once your expectation? You know it's rare to see 27 states in four days. I mean, it's hard to remember. It was only last Thursday that osha promulgated this regulation and already more than half the states in America have rushed to sue. You have a major lawsuit by one of the largest business lobbies in American job creators network. All of them are making the same argument, which is this is an unconstitutional overreach by osha. Ocean is supposed to govern what happens at the workplace, not what happens in your home or with your doctor with other things. And so the first a court to take a look at this, the 5th circuit of appeals, Court of Appeals in Texas, said there was such grave constitutional issues here. It ordered an injunction Sunday, the job creators network asked the a circuit to make that injunction nationwide, freeze it nationwide. That's a clue that these courts see the same issues as

"Julie Kelly. Welcome to America first one on one. Hi Seth. Thank you for having me on. I appreciate it. We're going to go through all the incredible things that you have documented in your investigative journalism and American greatness. The specific cases Americans should know about. But let's start with the 50,000 foot picture. I didn't come up with this phrase. I use it every day on the radio show. Do you believe is it hyperbole to say that what we are witnessing in the United States is an attempt to criminalize conservatism? No, it absolutely is accurate. And I think that that's something that really started in the Trump era, what we're seeing is just really have a progression of crossfire hurricane, which started in July of 2016. What explain explain cross fire hurricane for those who don't live in the swamp, don't follow the minutiae of the weaponization of law enforcement and intelligence. What is operation crossfire hurricane and who did it target? It's a great point. Thanks for saying that, because, you know, we throw away throw these terms around like everyone is supposed to know. So crossfire hurricane is the counterintelligence probe that Jim Comey's FBI opened up against four Trump campaign associates, Mike Flynn, George papadopoulos, Carter page and Paul Manafort. And that was really just the conduit to spy infiltrate sabotage the Trump campaign. And that resulted in a Pfizer warrant against Carter page where the FBI and DOJ went to the secret court that is supposed to root out foreign terrorists called Carter page a foreign agent of Russia got a fisa warrant to spy on him that was in October 2016. And that just really accelerated this criminalization of Donald Trump, his associates, then his cabinet, his administration, and now we have almost 5 years later, four and a half years later. Now criminalizing his supporters and his

He would sometimes take videos of what was happening. This is a typical day in Afghanistan. It's about 110 degrees outside, but as soon as you walk into the fields, the fields are irrigated and So they're incredibly humid. It's almost like someone turns up the temperature, so when you start to walk to those fields, it's almost like someone's taking a breath away.

And you know when you wear uniforms and you march around, and I was sort of naive, you know, when I joined in 2000 and six, the focus was still on Iraq. Still looking for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, so Afghanistan was sort of an afterthought. When you first got deployed to Afghanistan, were you excited? Did did you want to go? I volunteered. Yeah, I was with the second Marine Regiment. And second Italian eighth Marines. The battalion that I became a part of they didn't have enough personnel to go to Afghanistan, so they came over to second Marine Regiment asking Marines. Does anybody want to jump on a deployment?

And then there's a y you think of when you hear the words old growth for us so the official definition is that on the coast where where the growing season is longer in tends to be wetter. That trees that are older than two hundred and fifty years are considered to be old growth in other parts of the province. It's trees that are one hundred and forty years old. But i think when when people think of old growth imagine those kind of icon ick photographs of these enormous cedar. Douglas fir trees that are as tall. Skyscrapers in is wide as a boss.

"Not create a more lethal virus? If you were going to wipe out an opponent opposing army and say, Say, for example, hypothesizing here that this was a viral bio weapon by the Chinese government, then why wouldn't you create a more potent viral weapon that would wipe people out instantly? Well, folks, if it wipes people out instantly, the problem with deadly viruses like that. Is you don't have any hosts because you wipe out the host quickly. And what better way to spread a viral? Potential bioweapon. And to use a virus that can have indicators of asymptomatic spread, which we've had meaning you wouldn't even know you were sick while you were spreading it. And secondly, what if the virus generally didn't kill the young and healthy did enough damage to keep them off the battlefield for a while, but killed a whole bunch of other people, too? Kind of the perfect viral bioweapon, right? I mean, you wouldn't want it to get out there and wipe out your army to, though, so you would definitely need a vaccine. Make a whole bunch of people sick. Can't breathe. No, this topic is troubling for the media. That doesn't want to ask any questions anymore. They just want to tow the Chinese Communist propaganda line. But we're not going to do that here. Now I want to be crystal clear. Do I know this for a fact that this is a Chinese bioweapon? Though we do not do we know it leaked from a lab conclusively? No, we do not do we have evidence indicating that such and would have proper investigative reporter which you think we'd have in journalism be asking these questions Based on evidence. We have like a CG footprint inside a virus that rarely appears in nature, And we haven't seen it in nature yet, but does appear in lab work and happens to appear in the coronavirus.

Maybe longer many many enough years too many years i think. Why don't we just start at the beginning For people who heard this of like a talking point in a political fight over the last decade or so. How old is the blood band. And where did it come from right so you you go back about four decades in and you've fair confronted with the really disquieting reality of the blood of the tainted blood scandal right. You had cases the hundreds of cases across the country Where folks received blood transfusions that were not adequately screened that ultimately led to sero conversion for hiv that ultimately impacted them With other new hepatitis diseases as well as other infectious diseases And it was a national scandal. It was absolutely shattered. People's illusions about the blood system a better health system right it. It it fundamentally you know weakened trust in a meal what governments ought to be doing to ensure the health and safety of people who rely on government services so you go back to that point and you realize the sort of risks inherent in what protecting the blood supply you know actually means and unfortunately from that you know there was a good thing came from that.

Royal treatment: Meghan Markle, Prince Harry detail racism, suicidal thoughts in Oprah tell-all

"What oprah stands and the royals refuse to learn about twenty first century celebrity by judy berman. Tell me what your intention is. I'll tell you what my intention is. And let's see if we can align those. Two that oprah explained monday on cbs. This morning is what she says to everyone she interviews before the cameras start rolling in this case she was of course referring to the conversation with prince harry and meghan markle the duchess of sussex that filled a two hour primetime slot on the network the previous evening. The special drew seventeen point. One million american viewers in early ratings that as deadline pointed out adding up to a larger audience than last week's golden globes and september's emmys combined while oprah's collaborative approach to shaping interviews. Has its limitations. You wouldn't want to see an investigative reporter compare objectives with the subject of a damning expose. It proved to be a singularly effective way into the ongoing harry and meghan saga. The couple broke their dignified silence about their reasons for stepping down a senior royals and leaving the uk in an equally dignified special that riveted viewers revealed troubling new details about behind the scenes machinations at buckingham palace and supplied a powerful counter narrative to the one the firm and british tabloids had been pushing also on this morning. Tino brown called the program kryptonite to the royal family. It's like a hand. Grenade although oprah whose production company harpo produced the special and licensed it to cbs. Where a fee reported to be in these seven to nine million dollar range certainly made it look that way. Taking control of the public narrative couldn't have been easy even compared with its treatment of outsiders who've married into the royal family in the past the uk press has been brutal in its coverage of meghan and a one two punch last week a dispatch from the times of london claim that meghan had bullied and humiliated aids. Driving two of them to resign and the palace announced. It was launching an investigation into that alleged. Behavior sunday's interview cast doubt on not only that story but also just about every story that might have originated with the royals. Harry and meghan described an invisible contract between the firm and the media in which the tabloids and their reporters are wined dined and welcomed into the palace for holiday parties to encourage favourable coverage it all sounded pretty sinister. But it's worth remembering that for their part. The couple also has a cozier relationship with oprah than most subjects of the journalists whose profiling them the difference in this case and in the case of everything. That was ingenious about sunday. Special wasn't the framing as the faceless firm came off as having manipulated the media an unseen and thus noble ways and a depiction that jibes with the portrait of the house of windsor. Painted by netflix's mega popular the crown. It's exiles seemed to have nothing to hide. Oprah didn't just disclose to viewers that she knew harry and meghan personally. She opened the interview by reminiscing with the duchess about the experience of attending their wedding. The distinction isn't between tiffany bias. It's between transparency and pass in many ways what we witnessed was oprah's understanding of a shift in how credibility is established and the present versus how it was established three generations ago when the queen was a newlywed. The young elizabeth waited out bad press trusting that her refusal to enter the fray would ultimately vindicate her as the bigger person but we are in a moment when skepticism of the media is at an all time high. The public is savvier than it has ever been about. How public figures manufacture their images top tier celebrities like beyond say preferred to communicate with fans via social media channels. They can control an oprah appeared to realize the value of an open conversation on prime time broadcast. Television was in the ability to create the impression. One that for the record. I see no reason to doubt that. Meghan and harry were spinning the facts so much as they were clearing the air air that the firm would for reasons implied to sell fish if not malicious preferred to leave murky for viewers who feel entitled to know every detail about their favorite celebrities lives and for whom openness is a prerequisite for loyalty transparency. Worked that was due in large part to the power of the story. Meghan and harry had to tell as well as to their unprecedented eloquence and candor on issues of race and mental health. But you can't underestimate the importance of how that story was told that is how oprah managed to align her intentions and those her subjects along with being two of the most famous people on the planet. She and meghan were after all to women of color discussing racism. Gas lighting and other third rail topics in front of an audience of millions from the tranquil outdoor setting their socially distanced conversation to the outfits. They chose a fluey floral for the radiantly. Pregnant duchess of sussex a muted mov for the queen of all media to the calm tone all three participants adopted.

Substack Newsletters Are Unbundling the News Industry

"Week there was a A twitter thread by a professor named sarah roberts who is the co leader and co founder of the ucla center for critical internet inquiry. Who stated goal is quote strengthening democracy through culture making and she went on this tirade about sub stack. Which is obviously where i you know. I work you're gonna work and the threat is kind of amazing. And it's it's the reason. I think it's worth talking about is because this is becoming a thing now There have been a number of features in places like the new yorker and and the new york times wrote about some And there's this increasing like Message that sub stack is like. It's not just annoying but it's dangerous. And so she. She wrote a series of tweets. The first one says some is a dangerous direct threat to traditional news media of more importantly it's threat to journalism. And here's the argument. Journalists make their name doing reporting This is governed by norms and practices in ethics flawed and not always achieve true but president and guiding. What newsrooms do in every way. Yes people not inside. Journalism or media may not know the specifics but they often have a nebulous sense that there are norms independence disclosure of compromise editorial oversight and vetting of the reporting. That's what makes them trust enough to buy or read or watch. What's less obvious is when there is a reporter who makes her name in the newsroom. Traditional paper or fully online outlet then leased for subject or any analog taking that name reputation earned from work done in the context. I just stated in this way and investigative reporter who has earned her bona fide in a newsroom and underbush strict editorial and journalistic principles has just cashed out and turned herself into an opinion writer. She likes it because she's finally got her independence from an editor. Please do not writer or pay sub stack. I have to say it. I believe it's dangerous. Take keyed you read it here. I

Bob Lazar, UFOs And Aliens!

"In may of nineteen eighty-nine and interview with investigative reporter. George knapp appeared on las vegas news channel k. l. a. s. a shadowy figure under the alias of dennis explained exactly what was a secret facility south of groom lake in the nevada desert nine flying saucers of extraterrestrial origin are being stored analysed and testify. The subject explains that he was tasked with reverse engineering the propulsion systems of the crash and did not know how the government had gotten hold of these crafts. The shadowy figure was eventually revealed to be bob lazar in a subsequent interview where he revealed his identity. Bob lazar who Has a bachelor's degree in physics and electronic technology from pacifica university and he continued his masters at mit. He's a very very very interesting figure. Did you know before we started this researching into this. Did you know about him. I did I watched the netflix documentary. Just a super interesting individual. And i ended up going back in like watching his interview with koa s and And seem like how all that played out in the incredible reach that it had after the fact you know it was translated into multiple languages. Played over the entire world and people were gripped by by this man's story in what he had to say because he he seems so credible. It's seems like everything he's saying really has weight in is truthful the fact that he started this with not really seeking the the attention or seeking the accolade but actually just seeking to get the information out there even hiding his identity that some might say that that would be the the behavior of someone trying to hide something but i see it as behavior of someone who is trying to protect themselves. Because they're saying something that that may actually be factual dude. I bet he is phone calls every single day. People trying to get a hold of this guy people trying to email him and all kinds of stuff and back when this verse back when this first came out. I mean think about that. The technology and the communication that they had then you know people people today are used to getting like notifications every single day but think about how he felt getting all these phone calls. When i mean he's just a regular guy he. He was picked up because he has like a coup wanda and now he's this huge figure. Even thirty years ago. I mean it's just insane. Yeah i mean. He said he used to have people camping on his lawn. And stuff. and you you to remember that within the ufo community. There are a lot of people that are. I don't know how to say it a lot of people. That are a little strange. So for those people to becoming too bob lazar and it's got to be slightly terrifying and you'll see as we kind of dive into his story that i find him very credible. I find everything that he says. Very very credible in a lot of the stuff that he has said in the past Eventually comes through. So basically he gets his degrees from mit and At university he starts working at a los alamos research lab. And i believe los alamos and working On physics and nuclear weapon research which is what what the lab does obviously and then during his employment there. Alex kind of set it. He builds a jet powered honda. It's kind of extravagant thing that he drives to work everyday. It's literally a jet on a honda. Civic nazi looks like something out of the future and he built this thing. I mean he built us thing in eighty nine. I think it might have eighty nine was one he actually worked as for so yeah it was. It was probably around eighty four. I think So that gets the attention of the los alamos local newspaper who put him on the front cover with his jet cars. Jet honda that he built and that that's a little bit important to the story later on so kind of put a pin in that. So he's working at los alamos and he says that he leaves los alamos and goes off to start other businesses. That that turn out to fail now he never really goes into detail or at least i couldn't find what those other businesses were but he a couple years later wants to get back into the science community

Would you let your face be your passport?

"I'm jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story hillary. Beaumont is a freelance investigative reporter based in toronto. Hello hillary hey are you doing. I'm doing well. I'm a little creeped out. About the next time i traveled. Thanks to this piece. No problem just happy to make you aware will listen. Let's start with the actual process. You had your irises scanned as part of reporting this. What is that like. tell me about it. yeah i thought it was. It would be really interesting to go into a jail in texas as part of this story because there was a sheriff there. this guy named omar lucio who had been lake pretty open about the fact that he was using this iris scanner in his jail. His jail is very close to the texas mexico border and this iris scanner was helping basically deport people at the us border And i wanted to go inside the jail and see what this was like. I went in saw how they were using it in jail. They were scanning inmates in an not telling them what this technology was. I volunteer to use it as well as essentially like a little camera. You get your is scanned. It checks your is against database and tells you who the person is and if they have a criminal history and i'm assuming years came up negative. They came up negative. Yes do you know what happened to the scan after you were done well for my is deleted it but for inmates in the jail they keep them indefinitely they basically ended up in government database that is shared with law enforcement agencies across the us like the fbi and also immigration and customs enforcement and essentially they they allow agencies to deport people more quickly or identify people who are not using their real names. And that's really how it works. Is there anything in. we're going to get beyond This one texas jail this one technology In just a second but is there anything preventing that jail or any other place That does this from giving those to anyone else like i. I understand it being used in a law enforcement context though we can certainly debate that. But i mean how private is it wants. Your eyes are out there. Yeah i mean for a lot of these technologies whether it's in a jail context or when you're crossing an international border. What i think people should know is that you're you're in a space of reduced privacy expectation. So it's really hard to say no to these technologies than once your irises or your face or any. Biometric identification is scanned. It can be indefinitely stored in a database an shared with all of these different agencies. Know whether or not you're a criminal. Can you explain a little bit about What a place with a reduced expectation of privacy is an and what does that let the government do yeah So spaces of reduced privacy expectation include borders prisons detention facilities and essentially these areas. Where legally you cannot retain your rights to privacy as well as you wouldn't other context so One example is a back in twenty sixteen. I believe i was flying from toronto pearson. To north dakota and to to report on the standing rock protest and i was flagged for secondary screening and The actually confiscated my phone only about ten minutes But it made me nervous hell You know. I had a pass password on my phone of course but it just made me lake feel so violated that they could take my phone like that even just for a few minutes. I was wondering like things were rushing through my head of like. What are they gonna do with my phone. How long are i going to be kept here. What's going on. And this is just an example of what you can and can't do at borders like you. You have a really hard time retaining your privacy your data your phone in these spaces because what are you supposed to do under those circumstances

"Comeau traffic from the duvet at 8 51. I promise you we will get traffic in a moment, but first Let's head over to Bill O'Neill. We're doing more from home, and many of us need more home to do it. That's not built. This is Bill Good Friday evening. We've heard a lot about the social media site parlor in the recent days and its potential role in the riot that took place at the U. S Capitol as Congress prepared to certify the election of Joe Biden is president. Now there's a call for the FBI to take a closer look at it all. National investigative reporter Tom Hamburger is watching it closely for the Washington Post, and he spoke with Cuomo's Bill O'Neill. Tom, Where is this call coming from? And how likely is it that the FBI will take a closer look at parlor? Well. The request to the FBI came yesterday Thursday from The chairwoman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, congressman woman Caroline Di Maloney, a figure of some power in the House, and it was signed by her really on behalf of the committee, asking the FBI to undertake what she called a robust examination of the role that Parlor played in the January 6 Capital Siege. Parlors you know is now off is now disabled and basically off line, But she says a top priority for her. We interviewed her after she sent the letter. A top priority for her is investigating parlor asking the FBI for its research and understanding. What if anything, decide might be responsible are connected to regarding January 6 and also understanding its underlying Of funding and support at this point in time. What do we know about what if any role parlor may have played in what happened? Well, there have been on parlor entries on parlor from from people who subscribe to the site. Allegedly encouraging violence and encouraging people to carry out the attack. The organization has said in response and told us yesterday that like other social media platforms, we will continue to cooperate with law enforcement officials to prosecute individuals responsible for organizing what their chief operating officer told us What the shameless January 6th attack. And s 01 of the questions here, of course, is whether parlor like other sites that has participants not connected with the company making offensive or even possibly insightful tweets, or her comments that might be considered. Inciting is whether parlor is in some way responsible as you could hear from tales in that statement, The company believes it is acted responsibly and says it will cooperate with all of these investigations and looks forward to being back online. Needless to say, you have to believe this is something that's going to stay in the spotlight for quite a while, maybe congressional hearings as well down the line. I would think so, Maloney told us when we interviewed her yesterday after she sent the letter that this was a top priority, and it would be a matter of investigation for the committee. When the chair of that oversight committee historically says something like that, it does indicate hearings. But as you know, this Congress is just now getting organized and started. So we can't say that for sure. But it is certainly a top priority for the chair of the committee. That's Tom Hamburger, read more online in Washington post dot com. Eskimos, Bill O'Neill with the interview. Nowadays 54 we head over to the Dubin Law Group Traffic.

"investigative reporter" Discussed on It's All Journalism

"This week. We talked to an investigative journalist. Who quit her job so that she could move to another country and report on the unjust way. some women are being treated in lebanon. I'm michael o'connell this is. It's all journalism as twenty twenty winds down or checking with a few of our former podcast guests to see what they've been up to. We last spoke. Lisa corey back in september. Two thousand eighteen. She had just finished in investigative feature about syrian child. Brides and lisa reached out to us in november about a story that she had just written for the washington monthly about the plight of housekeepers in beirut. Welcome back to the podcast lisa. Thanks for having me. Mike so you know just because we have to dot all our is in the crawl tease you. You came to our attention originally because you were working with ambra healy. Who's one of our producers up in <hes>. Buffalo and for some reason. We have a lot of guests from <hes>. Western new york and also from canada from ontario. So it's great to hear you again in it sorta checkup on so what you've been up to. Since we last spoke in september two thousand eighteen so allies happened since then. I have continued to travel to lebanon as a freelance journalist. And i knew. I wanted to dive into another instigative story. This one in particular has been on my mind. For about seven years since my first adult trip to lebanon. I had visited the country where my parents are from in. I noticed there are these black and asian maids who are treated incredibly poorly and for seven years. I've thought about it. But i thought it would be too hard of a story to do. There are just so many barriers in the way and luckily my last trip to lebanon which was summer of twenty nineteen. I had the opportunity to interview a maid who had a lot of traumatic experiences in. That really opened up the door for me to go deep and explore this topic. It seems in a way very similar to your approach with the story that you did a couple of years ago that you talked about about the the syrian war. Brides the the fact that you were looking for something to cover in lebanon his interesting also that you know. This is something that you noticed. How are you able to set up that initial incas. You know this seems like such a difficult story to <hes>. get an entree into. How did you find this woman to speak to. So it's really funny. Because as bad as this sounds i went to lebanon bananas. Second trip without much of a plan at all. I didn't know i was gonna do this story. It was july two thousand nineteen when i left buffalo and a lot of people. Ask me what stories are you gonna cover. What if nothing really happens for you to cover. And i said listen. I'm going. i'm gonna see whatever. I see that stands out to me. I'm just gonna dive into and luckily that trip two months later or a few months in the lebanese revolution started. So i was there for that but before the revolution happened. I was about two weeks into my trip and my aunt said. Why don't you come with eight to a family friend's house. So i went with her and i was like man. I really need to be focusing on work. But i guess to her friend's house we get there and her friends are asking me. What are you planning to write in. Lebanon while you're here and i said well there's one top i'd really love to do. It's about the maids who are abused here in. They said actually you should probably talk to our made. Her name is josephine. The last two houses that she worked for abused her. I said wow really you would let me just interview your made in. They said yeah. And i'm like well. How am i gonna do that. She's from ghana. And i only speak english. She's like she speaks perfect english so i sat down with josephine that night and she opened up to me for almost two hours. She was crying and she was telling me about her past employers who starved her made her sleep on. The kitchen floor attempted to rape her. You know verbally abused her. Didn't let her speak to their children because they said she would infect them with african diseases and at the end of the conversation josephine took a deep breath like a sigh of relief and the next day because actually slept at their house. We were fire from our where. I stay in love the next day. She told me that for the first time in years she slept last night because she felt like she got off her chest. And i think in that moment i realized the story is much bigger than me. It's much bigger than me. Trying to find article to pursue while overseas. it was really about the fact that so many women in lebanon so many of these maids are suffering in secret and a lot of journalists can document the specifics of <unk>. Offering because. I mean as you know mike. Journalism is changing so much and there's not a lot of investigative journalism happening. We just simply don't have the money and resources send reporters out to spend months on one topic and you know. I had quit my job and pretty much taken. A leave of absence suspended indefinite amount of time in lebanon and for the most part before the revolution <unk>. Are i spent a few months focusing on just this and then obviously the revolution took attention away from that. And i was finally able to revisit the topic when kobe came and i was stuck at home and i was able to finish the story so i mean you have a narrative re very powerful narrative from a for firsthand narrative from somebody who was involved this topic. Where do you go from there. To sort of examine the story the causes behind this situation in lebanon right so josephine gives me her side of the story which obviously was extremely dramatic and then i needed to find the facts. The data the research to back up her story and to prove she's not just experiencing a <unk>. Abuse so i did continue out to different maids but i also started reaching out to organizations that tried to help them. For instance. amnesty international and human watch have been issuing reports for years about the abuse maids endure in an calling on the lebanese government literally for decades asking them to end kefala file the the system i discuss in my article that allows us abuse to take place so those organizations were extremely helpful. I was interviewing people on the ground. In beirut who have really been advocating to end this strike system but on top of that there was one group in particular it's an advocacy group. That really helped take my article to another level in. help me really learn what's happening in the scene explicit. there's a group called this is lebanon. They were founded by former migrant domestic workers who were abused they operate on facebook so they have a group and their mission is to save maids. Who are trapped in abusive situations so because the lebanese government is so negligent <unk>. The lebanese government is negligent on. Its own people. There's no reliable. Gop system or police enforcement or rules or laws that can protect these maids. So where can they go. They go to this. Facebook group in this group literally gets thousands and thousands of messages a year <hes>. From women saying can you please help me. I haven't been paid in months. Can you please help bend sexually assaulted. Can you please convince my boss to let me leave or let me go home or let me go back to africa and there are people behind the facebook group who than contact the employers in. Say if you don't let this person go we will do x. y. and z. I mean it's kind of bizarre. It's kinda crazy but when you live in a country where there are no rules in. There is no proper system in place to take care of people. This is what they have to do.

UFO community we've had callers that have called in gym with those kinds of stories of or because of that you know seem to be controlled and under any intelligence in the conference's you've been to Cheryl do they talk more about or bush or physical craft it was more physical address that you know I thought it was interesting when Jan's talked about the changes of the reporting coming in that now they're more tic tac reports and he did mention I wanna dance with caller what were those lights in a straight line is gone okay okay because you know Janet mentioned that they're getting a lot of reports of starlink which is like a string of pearls the satellites are in order a cross strait line I don't know if perhaps it might have been what he may have seen warders indeed Cheryl Dunn appears on our program on the last Thursday of every month barring a holiday or so we'll probably end up moving you on thanksgiving one way or another Cheryl and something like that but that you know of everything you've investigated to date what's the one thing that puzzles you the most anything that may be of course your photos are always hustling you know we don't know the answer we don't know the propulsion we don't know the mission we don't know what you know why everything is happening and that is why we're being individually information is being withheld will we ever if if the if they ever if there is disclosure will we ever share in the advanced technology and on and on and on but half there are other things that are mysterious as wells and Wolfman creature you know the one that I had on the show Jason Davis September October I believe it was those kinds of things it was in such huge creatures that people are beginning to talk about a report more now as well but but I I I still think as far as implications too as in the overview and the future I think I think it's in in the area of the U. S. those super archer will talk to you in about a month with some more great stunning reports Cheryl Jones our investigative reporter for dandelion tea time Dan Heiser Lisa.

"Final segment with our investigative reporter Cheryl Jones will take your questions and your stories as well Cheryl you've been a meteorologist almost all your life are you seen a change in weather patterns I mean are they more extreme or are they about the same well there's a lot of debate over that and I don't know if you ever have the opportunity the John Coleman present yes I sure did we have them on the show a long long time ago and you know he made a very I thought he made a very logical in a very sound case for for looking at in a different light that is you know obviously he didn't think it is what is being presented as being and it seems that everything seems to get into the hands of the politics takes over and the you really wonder what the truth really is that I I just think that the the the weather weather patterns are cyclical and I think that I would tend to agree with with those who take that stands that day I think things just happen in cycles you know yeah who knows what's going to happen next because with the addition of chemicals in the air that one of your guests Dan Dane waiting ten was talking about to push we've been following this for a long long time to some people call and call them chemtrails that others say geo engineering but stand that can have an effect too on the weather has this been going on a long time as well but I I I I I would tend to think this is the cycles are really a very powerful for Cindy yeah this is John Coleman who died last year of course he it was the co founder of the weather channel was Anne yes the ones that I met him he wasn't there when I worked at the weather channel he had gone on to other things that yeah I did meet him a couple years back before he passed away day in Atlanta at a reunion and had a chance and he was so nice I always really admired him and liked it a lot and I really thought this would be put together that presentation on on the climate change that that was pretty impressive let's go to calls from Cheryl Thomas in the high A. California together started the segment Tom go ahead hi George thank you for taking my call blessings to you the staff and of course blessings to the entire coast community very kind and Cheryl it's just I'm always eager to hear your investigative reporting every month thank you and I'm sure the coast audience thanks you also you know when Janice Carlson was speaking about communicating with the afterlife I believe you could do that anywhere at any time but I also think that there are special times and special places and I'm reminded of the words vision quest and another word builder match and I think in the past our past people did it differently they want to temples sacred space is sacred mom megalithic monument such as key support towers Stonehenge or the indigenous moans and North America and I think that they utilize the spiritual horsepower the momentum of the energies of those spots to communicate to break through to the other side such chance you know I'm reminded of the oracle said he'll fight and Greece you know as an example in that they utilize earth energies such as for your lines and sewer energies such as you know the summer and winter solstice sort of the autumn and spring equinox to facilitate that spiritual horsepower to break through to the other side so to come to my question you seem to be an outdoors person Cheryl and I was wondering if you found an experience in the outdoors or the sacred space sore conceived role or whatever that you're willing to share that so profound meaning to you and perhaps a profound connection with the universe and if you're willing to share their we appreciate it well that's interesting I had not thought of it in that regard but I did grow up on a pretty large farms and their wives a lot of opportunity there to real she should be close to nature shall we say so I've always felt that background which now with that being on a farm which is totally self sufficient with their family and I was thank you I was very involved in all of that I always felt that growing up like that really help help in terms of my grounding and yeah maybe I end up a little differently from most people maybe I didn't but if I did I think it's probably because of my background and if it ended up being long before I was born the location of the prehistoric flood that came through the farm because there is a big big guys creek that ran through it and so in the in days gone by it ended up really being quite a story five so I think growing up in that environment working in the fields as a young person as a child and really learning how to work and be responsible for everything myself I think that that was really a closeness to nature is that I don't think I could replace is something else and of course in that situation to with the flood that I mentioned there were many many people who died in it was on the very place that I grew up did you ever have a spiritual Tiffany Cheryl or something just the you know have that aha moment yes I I have I have I've I've had situations happen that they're on there would be no expects the nation for someone call you know is there a normal I've had things down I've I've found things from my faster way that could not have been explained is this is why they were found in those positions so I've had I've had lots of things I've had advanced or travel we were only one time a yes only one time that was in Kansas city only one two I've never been able to duplicate it again it's not as easy as some of our of our cast say I've had I've had sleep paralysis a lot of sleep paralysis over the years fortunately not not a not that anything in a while that was not signed no not at all we think we take texted tweets Tom's got something for sure when you got time Hey Cheryl this is for you from Caroline in fort worth Texas she says please ask Cheryl why she thinks it is that some people get visits from deceased relatives and some never do I would never claim to be an expert on that or on anything really but I suppose in George's is is more of an expert than me on this I would think it's because some people have that tune their awareness skills are more aware more receptive and more interested in it and as as the my guess Janice Carlson pointed out prepare for it and go to the external links to hopefully make it happen in a very safe and healthy way and I and I I think some people perhaps a born more intuitive than others it's genetic in some cases yeah I yes I I I would think so but I I think some of them just I have a natural intuition and and a natural ability to you know to have that awareness and to make those connections but yet but I think you have to you have to hound and then you have to utilize it to make it work at its best what do you think George well I gotta tell you Cheryl it's it's it's a gift that a lot of people have but some people put a blocks in they can't utilize it they can't use it those people who have that ability can do some incredible things and I think those are the people who succeed in life and I don't mean success in terms of just money but the in in things were there in our self's is is very successful but you have to have a basic self confidence I yeah I think that if you have a basic self confidence in you have a grounding of sorts that that serves you well in so many situations because you never know what you're going to end of fans and what's the what's the life is going to throw two years so I think if you if you believe in yourself and I think that goes goes a long way for your survival can not another few more calls Nancy in Minnesota east of the Rockies finance go ahead thank you I'd like to tell you about an experience that I had hi after my father died I went to the cemetery and as yet he's stone was about I hate no I walked your buyer whatever to win but then I went to my grandmother's grave and I said grandma you know where I know you know where he is you know tell him that I was here and that I love him he and I had a car that he Peter didn't work and it was bleeding out I was cold and yet much into their but yeah my I rolled the world out of a window to speak to my grandmother and the next thing my father's voice is clear as a bell wow came on and said top wrong you've always been tough you've always been strong did you take heed with an answer what embarrassed to say that I did not you did not why not but George thank I also had a radio that did not work you wouldn't believe the song that came on I'd never heard it before in my life I am a great country and this song came on was Daddy's hands there you go this is what I am giving you a message he works in strange ways Cheryl lately is that that happens to a lot of people that you think George that songs come on or music or the lyrics that use that have a meaning and they come on and as as the such opportune times never thought about you thinking of somebody and they call you all the time yeah all the time and as you said in your earlier peace with Janice as I say there are no coincidences no coincidences and things happen for a reason absolutely I came in once and this is sometime after my father passed away and he was a musician he paid we played with Roy Acuff back in those days and so he was very talented and Friday is the federal and the guitar and I had his musical instruments in a certain place and along with this fiddler the violin there's a little piece of Verizon's issues to keep the fiddle string you know in good shape and it was always kept inside the fiddle case and I came in and saw that little piece underneath the bed which was at the foot of the bed that that you would see when you first come into the room in the most visible spot there's no way I can miss it if you came in.

fiddle string you know in good shape and it was always kept inside this little case and I came in and saw that little piece underneath the bed which was at the foot of the bed that that you would see when you first went to the room in the most visible spot there's no way you're I could miss it if you came in like that and so I kind of think that is a sign that he might be thinking of me so

it work at its best what do you think George well I gotta tell you Cheryl it's it's it's a gift that a lot of people have but some people put a blocks and they can't utilize it they can't use it those people who have that ability can do some incredible things and I think those are the people who succeed in life and I don't mean success in terms of just money but the in in things were their inner self is is very successful watch right I think you have to have a basic self confident I am I think that if you have a basic self confidence in you have a grounding of sorts that that serves you well in so many situations because you never know what you're going to end up man and what what life is going to throw to you so I think if you if you believe in yourself and I think that goes goes a long way for your survival let's take a note another few more calls Nancy in Minnesota east of the Rockies finance go ahead I thank you I'd like to tell you about an experience that I had after my father died I went to the cemetery and as yet he stone was that up and I hate no I walked near or whatever to win but then I went to my grandmother's grave and I said grandma you know where I know you know where he is you know tell him that I was here and that I love him and I had a car that he either didn't work and it was bleeding out I was cold and yet much in despair but next my I rolled it at the world out of a window to speak to my grandmother and the next thing my fathers were it is clear as a bell wow came on and said top each strong you've always been tough you've always been strong did you take heed with an answer what I am embarrassed to say that I did not you did not why not but what but George this is a this is a thank I also had a radio that did not work you wouldn't believe the song that came on I'd never heard it before in my life I am a great country and the song that came on was Daddy's hands there you go this is what I am giving you a message he works in strange ways Cheryl so at least that that happens to a lot of people don't you think George that songs come on or music or the lyrics that means that have a meaning and they come on and as as the such opportune times never thought about you're thinking of somebody and they call you all the time yeah all the time and as you said in your earlier peace with Janice as I say there are no coincidences no coincidences and things happen for a reason absolutely I came in once and this is sometime after my father passed away and he was a musician he paid they played with Roy Acuff back in those days and so he was very talented and played the uses of the federal and the guitar and I had his musical instruments in a certain place and along with this fiddler the violin there's a little piece of Verizon's issues to keep the fiddle strings you know in good shape and it was always kept inside this little case and I came in and saw that little piece underneath the bed which was at the foot of the bed that that you would see when you first went to the room and the most visible spot there's no way you're I could miss it if you came in like that and so I kind of think that is sign that he might be thinking of me so definitely.

"Final segment with our investigative reporter Cheryl Jones will take your questions and your stories as well Cheryl you've been a meteorologist almost all your life are you seen a change in weather patterns I mean are they more extreme or are they about the same well there's a lot of debate over that and I don't know if you ever have the opportunity to see John Coleman present yes I sure did we have them on the show a long long time ago and eighty eight you know he made a very I thought he made a very logical and a very sound case for for looking at in a different line that it is you know obviously you didn't take it is that what is being presented as being and it seems that everything seems to get into the hands of the use and the politics takes over and the you really wonder what the truth really is that I I just think that the the the weather weather patterns are cyclical and I think that I would tend to agree with with those who take that stands that I think things just happen in cycles yeah yeah who knows what's going to happen next because with the addition of chemicals in the air that one of your guests Dan Dane waiting ten was talking about to push we've been following those for a long long time to some people call and call them chemtrails but others say geo engineering but that that can have an effect too on now is the weather has this been going on a long time as well but yeah I I I I would tend to think this is the cycles aren't really a very powerful force in the yeah this is John Coleman who died last year of course he if you will is the co founder of the weather channel was Anne yes the ones that I met him he wasn't there when I worked at the weather channel he had gone on to other things that I did made him a couple years back before he passed away in Atlanta at a reunion and had a chance and he was so nice I always really admired him and liked it a lot and I really thought this when he put together that presentation on on the climate change that that was pretty impressive let's go to calls from Cheryl Thomas in the high A. California together started the segment Tom go ahead hi George thank you for taking my call blessings to you the staff and of course blessings to the entire coast community very tight and Cheryl it's just I'm always eager to hear your investigative reporting every month thank you and I'm sure the coast audience thanks you also you know when Janice Carlson was speaking about communicating with the afterlife I believe you could do that anywhere at any time but I also think that there are special times and special places and I'm reminded of the words vision quest and another word pilgrimage and I think in the past the far past people did it differently they went to temple sacred space of sacred mountains megalithic monument such as key support towers Stonehenge or the indigenous moans and North America and I think that they utilize the spiritual horsepower the momentum of the energies of those spots to communicate to break through to the other side such chance you know I'm reminded of the oracles sent Delphi and Greece you know as an example and that they utilized earth energy use such as for the winds and solar energy use such as you know the summer and winter solstice or the autumn and spring equinox to facilitate that spiritual horsepower to break through to the other side so to come to my question you seem to be an outdoors person Cheryl and I was wondering if you failed based on experience in the outdoors or the sacred space sore conceived role or whatever that you're willing to share that so profound meaning to you and perhaps a profound connection with the universe and if you're willing to share their I would appreciate it well that's interesting I had not thought of it in that regard but I did grow up on a pretty large farms and their wives a lot of opportunity there too really he he be close to nature shall we say so I've always sells a set background which yeah with that being on a farm which was totally self sufficient with our family and I was I was very involved in all of that we sell the growing up like stance really help help in terms of my grounding and that maybe I ended up a little differently from most people maybe I didn't but if I did I think it's probably because of my background and if it ended up being long before I was born the location of the of the prehistoric flood that came through the farm because there is a big big creek that ran through it and so in the in days gone by it ended up really being quite a historic spot so I think growing up in that environment working in the fields as a young person as a child and really learning how to work and be responsible for everything myself I think that that was really a closeness to nature is that I don't think I could replace the something else and of course in that situation to with the flood that I mentioned there were many many people who died and it was on the very place that I grew up did you ever have a spiritual Tiffany Cheryl or something just in our head that aha moment yes I I have I have I've I've had situations happen then they're on there would be no X. explanation for someone call you know a paranormal I've had things Sam I've I've found

Cheryl this is for you from Caroline in fort worth Texas he says please ask Cheryl why she thinks it is that some people get visits from deceased relatives and some never do I would never claim to be an expert on that or on anything really but I suppose in George's is is more of an expert than me on this but I would think it's because some people have that tune their awareness skills are more aware more receptive and more interested in it and as as the my guess Janice Carlson pointed out prepare for it and go to the extra links to hopefully make it happen in a very safe and healthy way and I and I I think some people perhaps are born more intuitive than others it's genetic in some cases yeah I yes I I I would think so but I I think some of them just have a natural intuition and and a

"Investigative reporter Cheryl Atkinson and go over the old adage you can't fight city hall try fighting several layers higher than that and it's a rough road Michael in Tallahassee Florida next good evening Michael good evening and and I watch your program every week it's a great show I had a few questions yes go right ahead there's a deep do you think that there's a deep state question one for two do you think our own government records our telephone conversations do you think our own intelligence agencies rather than spying on Americans correctly we'll ask British intelligence to spy on us and how serious do you see the problem of parallel construction that the government uses to prosecute people well there you go as master's thesis in contemporary surveillance all right just to in order here is there a deep state Cheryl yes and I I always used to call the persistent bureaucracy that after years of working in Washington but from people who I've literally been told from people who worked under the Obama administration and the bush administration I've been told in the past couple of years things like there is a deep state I was part of it things like that and I I feel like I'm really seen it in action in the last couple years the the the oppression of course we get of a deep stay is that they they meet in the catacombs of of Washington and skulking around in the dark with the lit torch is or something I mean you can get pretty melodramatic about this how consciously does the deep state work that that entrenched bureaucracies will automatically fight to preserve their prerogatives their power their and their funding I take as a given but but how consciously would you say there is a deep state I think it's a mix I think it's pockets a very conscious meetings and discussions even if they don't consider that what they're doing and I think it's also the the natural structures you describe do they record our phone calls yes do they use British intelligence and to find that they're not allowed to I'll do you one better on that I would say yes but outside of this country there are places where no laws the five and told by Intel officials they can tap into these giant internet cables that are buried in the ocean with impunity as long as they go in international waters there's all kinds of ways they can listen to it and have no problem parallel construction the last question he asked I thank you if I understand the question correctly using premises and other matters that this is what he's asking to prosecute people who may not deserve it yes I do think that the big problem interesting in terms of of the the use of of other intelligence agencies and the like over them an address to the whole issue of recording our phone conversations there are so many of them I have heard it said that it it is entirely possible that our conversations are recorded which would not certainly be a pleasant thought but that there is no where near the resources to do anything other than record and store them there is no possible way even even using key words to to attract attention to certain conversations of no way you could ever actually make use of all this information because this is a tidal wave of conversations I think you're right so you had on two points one of them is to use it for terrorism prevention carpenters tended to hope to capture conversation out of the blue it seems almost pointless right yeah but to use that to have at your disposal if you have a name you want to search for if you want to look through Cheryl acting and stuff there's a way to do that because it's been collected so the notion isn't that they go through all of it the notion is if you start to think about bad actors looking for something that they wanted to hear or listen to a finder's fee that they wouldn't otherwise be able to bath for I think the danger is some of them I believe use it for yeah that that that other words that option is available to them and unfortunately like any option that can be a a bad temptation here's Bradley in Pittsburgh I Bradley hi I wonder if that girl ever got the G. due to watch Tom Fitton involved in their investigation I did thank you for asking they helped not with the issue because I had attorneys working on it with me but they have helped on prior freedom of information act lawsuit and have been very you know have really tried to help a lot on certain matters this suit I don't believe they did anything with this because I had an attorney that took that initially that and helping me more to come stay with us one eight six six five oh Jimbo sharyl Attkisson our guest in the award winning investigative journalist the author of The New York Times bestsellers the spear and stone wall to both of which we spoke with her about on this program she.

"With John Solomon investigative reporter an executive vice president of the hill all right so let's let's get your take your preview of what you think we're gonna see this week besides I mean they're going to try and put on a show I mean if there is already moving to discredit the heart which reported notice before its release well well why would we ever in the middle of of a Muller investigation into possible Russian interference in the twenty sixteen election why would we be more concerned about Farrah violations and loan applications and old tax returns and taxi medallions but not interested in a what the New York times is now suggesting was always Russian disinformation that Hillary paid for that was disseminated to you know these hacks and conspiracy theorists like Michael is a cough in The Washington Post and David corn why would we care about that not even ask a single question about a dirty Russian dossier and that being the basis of a FISA warrant I but there's no need to think about those things how does Mullery answer that question it is a great question I suspect the Robert Muller is going to be a dud of a witness much alike Michael Kohn turned out to be a dud of a witness in fact backfired on the Democrats of the very first witness in the house Democrats new investigations and I think the reason why he's telegraph why he has said publicly he will not go beyond what's in the report so I suspect you knew Muller as Devin newness suggested maybe coordinating with the house dams about what he's gonna say I have a strong reason to believe that Robert Muller is going to stick to the word that he said after its press conference how strong the belief do you have because of that so that let me interpret for the our audience if John Solomon's I have a strong sends it means that he pretty much knows so want you just tell me how you know I don't know because no one can predict a person's behavior until it happens but I my my reporting suggests that what Robert Muller said a month ago which is I'm not intending to go beyond what's in the report is what's going to be the core of his testimony I think you're going to hear a lot of times I refer you to the report and I have nothing more to add to it I think he's going to do that a lot in the course of the hearing that's going to be frustrating to both sides but I think the questions particularly from Republicans are going to be in lighting I think people like deafening as mark meadows in Jim Jordan are going to ask questions while national audience is paying attention that's going to shock the American public because they haven't been able to hear all these things before they can there's going to be real questions about the conduct of the rush investigation and Mahler's team and Weissman said just in time to many Americans here that will it look if you want to stay you're welcome I have a my question Jim call me the arrogant super patriot put out his questions that he wants Democrats to ask and I have questions that I want to ask him call me and if you want to stick around and add to it what questions you think Republicans are can you you're welcome to stay John Solomon but I don't know what your schedule all right the executive vice all right great executive vice president for the hill investigative reporter will come back my questions for Jim call me and then also my questions for smaller world me and John will put that together as we continue straight ahead this report is sponsored by discover we treat you like you happening right now in Iraq on Monica Rohde Briar view near Baptist hospital we often you.

"Investigative reporter and writer executive vice president of the hill. John Solomon is with us. Let's go back now because let's get a big picture the days the weeks, the months ahead. What's coming? Yeah. I think the biggest dynamic sees watching the investigators now become the investigated that is going to be the dynamic that will dominate the next six months, and that will on many fronts, turn the intelligence community, you know, Kerr with attorney general bar who's doing his own assessment, it will occur with the inspector general the Justice department, and I believe it will occur in both the house and the Senate even Republicans in the minority are starting to do some pretty remarkable things digging into some of the issues, and even though they don't have committee power. They still have the power of their office. And I think you'll see House Republicans Lindsey Graham, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin has a very powerful committee. I think you'll see between those five sectors a lot of accountability coming out and a lot of hard questions. I think the biggest thing that president United States can do to help all of those gain transparency. Declassified the documents that have been identified in those five buckets. Well, you want to remind people I remind them often. But the way you say it is different. So maybe they'll hear from you better than me. Got it. Right. From the beginning. The documents the gang of eight document application. Would expose the FBI acknowledging failure and showing the misstep. So when you read those two together, you sort of have the perfect compendium of what one wrong in the FBI. Then there are some emails that show. How early on the FBI knew that there were problems with Christopher Steele is an informant. Remember affirmatively, they told the court. He was in good standing, and they knew of no derogatory information. I don't think that declarations gonna turn out to be true. I gotta give props and kudos to you. And I can't mention every person, but as maybe twenty or thirty of us that have been on this from day one and. We wouldn't be here. Honestly without this is to now critical and crucial to the the Republic that we love, and if we don't solve these problems it's going to happen again. Anyway, thank you so much John Solomon. We'll see tonight on Hannity nine eastern, Fox News channel quick break. Right back democrat, Mark Penn? A hard hitting article about Muller being done and Democrats should be too because Trump is no Nixon. Well, he'll weigh in on the extremists. Now, take it over the Democratic Party straight ahead.

"With investigative reporter Jeremy Scahill talking about President Trump's recent move to limit the amount of information released to the public about drone strikes. Jeremy we were just going into sort of President Obama's approach on this. How does first of all I want to be clear is this less data or no data that the Trump administration is advocating for what we've already seen that the the Trump administration when something goes right or they think that they've done some spectacular military operation. They want the entire world to know. Remember when Trump celebrated his dropping of the MO of the mother of all bombs in Afghanistan. I mean, it was like the second coming of know of the atomic bombing of Japan in terms of technological significance to Trump. I think it's dirtier data is the way we could look at it where it's going to be even more selectively presented to the public then occurred under Obama, and look there have been there's been a serious ratcheting up of drone strikes on the part of the Trump administration. Everyone's talking. About Trump Russia the twenty twenty race. This guy has doubled down on the worst excesses of Bush and Obama. He has lifted restrictions on killing civilians in Somalia alone. Trump now has done twenty-something drone strikes in this year alone. And he has loosened the rules Obama wanted to do so called leadership strikes where they're taking out known people with a track record in terrorist activity and yet he's still had civilian Cal. He had a lot of civilian casualties. The stated policy was we are going after the leadership Trump's not even pretending that anymore. If you are some kid who's getting paid a little bit of money in Somalia Yemen de basically guard some post somewhere, they're going to treat you in the same way that they would treat. I'm in Aswa. Hurry, the leader of Al Qaeda are a legitimate target, the metrics of that are very complicated. And I do think that there is a direct connection between an increase in support for terrorist organizations at an increase in drones strikes, particularly those that are killing civilians. We saw that under Obama with. A p and Yemen Al Qaeda in the Arabian peninsula. I think we're going to see it in a lot more places under Trump. This is a dangerous administration in terms of the capability, they have militarily and with the CIA and lying and lack of accountability, even the minimal accountability standards that Obama put in place in the eleventh hour, they've said, no, we're not gonna participate in that. This is a very dangerous situation than I think a lot of us have been making a mistake by paying not enough attention to Trump's war policies, it's bad. Now. Let's also talk about how drone warfare has evolved since President Obama. I mean, this was one of the first times I think under his presidency that we actually begun to understand how the military was using this. What makes you so concerned is it worst technology is it is it better technology. Now is it going to be more efficient? Where do we stand today with drone warfare Obama really embraced rounds? Not out of any love for the technology. It was because he didn't want to do large scale troop deployments. And he spent a lot of his political credibility on a national security level convincing liberals that. This is a smarter way to wage war. What we've seen though over the past ten years is that a lot of civilians are killed in drone strikes. Maybe not as many as would be killed and conventional Tomahawk cruise missile strikes or ground invasions. But the question is always framed as should we do drone strikes or troops on the ground? When we should be saying, what is our engagement with the entire Muslim world. Look like, what is an actual sane approach to countering national security. Right diplomacy working with regional partners and not being afraid to negotiate with governments that say. Yeah, we are Islam in nature, but we pose no threat to the western world. There have been the history is rife with stories where the United States intervenes and countries because they're concerned about Islamic fundamentalism and end up overthrowing the very people. That would have been the best counter to terrorism Bush over through a government in Somalia in two thousand six no one ever talks about it called the Islamic courts union. They were the best counter to Al Shabaab. Now, there's not a lot of of thinking ahead an either party's part in this country. What happy you said the data's going to get dirtier where do people go to find good information, accurate information cleaner, data about what's happening on the ground? If anywhere. Okay based bureau of investigative journalism. And the new America foundation in the United States. Both have been tracking drone strikes for a very long time. I would say that the bureau for investigative journalism has a very proven track record, add they're very conservative in their mythology methodology excuse me, it is out there. But can we trust the source that it's coming from under under Obama at the end? Yeah, they pretty much were straight shooting under Trump. Who knows? I mean is he gonna start tweeting about this stuff? And that's how we'll find out about it. And is it true? Probably.

"But as investigative reporter, Michael Isikoff pointed out on last night show, there is no historical precedent for that kind of approach when Sam Irvin held the Senate Watergate hearings. Did he ask Archibald Cox's permit? Listen to hold those hearings when Peter Regino began impeachment hearings on on Richard Nixon. Did he ask for Leandra wars skis permission to do? So no because everybody accepted that congress had a job to do. We're now going to see whether Lijun Cummings Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler will step up to the plate and do their job here. And that means public hearings not behind closed doors, congressman Sean Patrick Maloney's at democrat from New York. I'm one of the newest members of the house intelligence committee. What are you? Let's start with the basic thrust of what Michael said last night, which I happen to agree with the need for public transparent hearings. What do you think of that? Well, I think it's obviously a terrific idea where it's appropriate. I don't think you're going to see any of those chairman shrink from their responsibilities. But I think the number one goal know, particularly on the intelligence committee is also to return a level of seriousness and professionalism to the conduct of these proceedings which has been in. Short supply under Republican control where it descended into this partisan circuits. But there are public hearing scheduled with Michael Cohen in front of the oversight committee. That's already on the calendar. The committees are just getting constituted this week. I think you'll see a very aggressive oversight by this new democratic majority, and it's long overdue. You said you said you agreed where appropriate what is the where appropriate caveat to your mind well because particularly with respect to the intelligence committee. There's naturally going to be an opportunity in closed session to discuss highly classified or sensitive materials, which we know are central to a lot of these investigations. And I think what you'll see is the new chairman absolutely committed to transparency, but also you'll see him take seriously his responsibilities to protect the United States and to conduct the committee with the seriousness and professionalism that it used to have. But nobody's pulling any punches on congressional oversight. I guarantee there are a lot of democratic chairman and chairwomen up here who are ready to. Go and provide the kind of oversight this administration desperately needs. It's not a question. Pulling punches to me, it's more about public nece first behind closed doors intelligence committee, obviously all of that has been behind closed doors. We now know that there are transcripts, obviously. The the committee chair out Schiffer said he's going to move to share them with Robert Muller, but shouldn't be made public as well. If you're talking about the transcripts, I think what you're going to. You're going to see is an orderly process there to make sure that there there's no disclosure of secrets or confidential information, look, nobody in the new democratic majority is going to do anything to hide the ball. The only thing we're gonna take seriously is the professionalism that should characterise the proceedings up here should not be some partisan circus. We should not be pursuing some political objective. We should be searching for the truth. And when you dealing with a highly classified material, it's important sometimes to do that behind closed doors, and one thing that Michael Isikoff left out was that we have also seen examples where? Congressional committees have gotten the way federal prosecutions, particularly in the Iran contra investigation. Yep. We're in fact, subjects we're not ultimately subject to criminal accountability. Because a bunch of members of congress went too far. So I want the truth out..

"We are back with investigative reporter Liam Cochran miracle in the cave. Let's take some more calls Kevin in hemet, California. Hi, cavs. Go ahead. Judge the question for leeann, my probably was a certified scuba diver. He was taught emergency procedures. They told me I used to travel with them to the waters when he did see skin dive, and they claim it in a red tie or in a cloud or some murky water. If you got confused diver, Georgia you wanted to find out the surface, and which way to go. They all knew that you had it was a code. You had to blow bubbles. That's right. You're a respirator mask or whatever you could to follow a stream of air bubbles. That was you're just making it to the surface. Like, I said he likes for example, but a red tie. You can't eat your at that point zero visibility. You made it very clear that you can't see in the water, which was dark black. Now. I'm wondering if there was a problem with him finding his way even though he was a professional. You mean the one the one who died? Yes, I'm just wondering would that be possible? If he couldn't travel you don't. Now, you said we'll stay tuned feet of water. And this professional diaper with down there. And he couldn't find his way back up. I'm just wondering is that possible that he wasn't, you know, if he lost his sense of equilibrium or his is is, you know, find out what our or you could have had a heart attack. Liam anything could have happened. The insides, you're absolutely right. Normally there are procedures that divers can do to try and work out with a on orientated cells. What's up what's down in in the situation? These guys ran inside a cave with zero visibility. They were mostly relying on a guide rope that had been laid earlier as they explored the cave and tried to reach the boys. So the some good non the man who died and he's dived, buddy. Were coming back alone that guide ripe true flooded section of tunnel. Pulling themselves along the right? So I don't think they would have been much of a problem with funding their way, they they went in. Any particularly deep water. Some other mystery. Just to Georgia could have been a heart attack. Stroke could have been just about anything. Liam thank you so much miracle in the cave. Friends, the voice of shaggy from Scooby.
