Good morning, after pill is something you can take when you've had unprotected sex as a means of making sure that there is no implantation. The medication abortion is one that can be taken up to 12, maybe 11 to 12 weeks after you have been impregnated and in which the actual embryo is on the side of the wall of your uterus. So yes, it's what we didn't have in the 70s. It's what we do have today because of technology and advancements in pharmacology. And it is FDA approved since 2000 is mifepristone. You take one pill to stop the growth of the egg and then you take another pill to have it shed the egg. So yes, it's going, it's going to be the next, well, it's considered abortion.

"Malcolm ever since before Trump Russia, when you've been warning about all this and the Republican Party's involvement, here they are. They're against sending aid to Ukraine, pushing Putin talking points. We are right back where you and I started with Trump Russia before the 2016 election. And now, by the way, a Russian missile, of course, just hit the civilian shopping center over there, I can't pronounce it. Yes. With over a thousand people inside the building, as I've said from day one, this is not a war. This is a terrorist attack on a sovereign nation. And what we're talking about on January 6th is a terrorist attack on our nation. I mean, that's right. Yeah, go ahead. And ours is internal. These people are using the phrase and when I wrote that book, the phrase Civil War. And for most of them, it's a race war. It really is. This is Timothy McVeigh stuff, the reason that he blew up the Oklahoma City bombing. He thought that it would incite an armed white uprising in America and that they would start killing liberals. They would start killing blacks and other people. And you know, I'm coming back. That's all I'm going to talk about. It's the juxtaposition between this war on democracy here to eliminate its in this country, which is democratic free, you know, and then go to my own home and these people are clamoring for fascism.

Malcom Nance Author of 'They Want to Kill Americans' Was Right

"This, I said this in a hearing, just after January 6th, they called me to testify before Congress. And one of the things that I identified was, I said, there's a reason they were able to mass on the capitol, get in there, start pitched lethal battles with the police using spears, American flags, as spears and Trump flags. It's battering ramps. They were able to get close because they had the camouflage of white skin. Yeah. That was it. And they were thinking, we're not going to hurt or harm people who are like Donald Trump or ourselves. And that was part of their strategy was to close in upon the building and seize the building and proclaim Donald Trump president. I wrote that a year ago and I could not believe it. Then, and now I'm finding out it's all true and this is why people need to buy this book. This week for the next two weeks before this launch because people are not going to take this lying down. They, as, you know, calls for Donald Trump's arrest or indictment or criminality. I still every once in a while, get these feeds from the right-wing blogosphere and the right-wing world, they live in a crazy alternate reality where we are armed, rampant militants tearing up the world. And they brag about the number of guns they have. They brag about it. And you know, I'm afraid that by the time that this, you know, we get to book launch on July 12th, they'll have solidified in their heads that they're going to have to do something about the January 6th committee and the people who are investigating it.

"And institutional changes in the military that would target the growing problem of sexual violence within the armed forces. Critics and victims say the current practice of reporting sexual assault up the chain of command leads to the little to no justice for the victims and often exacerbates the problem. Defense secretary Austin said that he supports the proposed solution of replacing military chains of command with independent military lawyers. It's a recommendation from the Independent Review Commission on sexual assault and sexual harassment in the military, But I fully support removing the prosecution of sexual assaults and related crimes. From the military chain of command. We are prepared to work with Congress to amend the Uniform Code of Military justice. IRC also recommended the inclusion of others special victims crimes inside this independent prosecution system. To include domestic violence, and I support this as well. Given the strong correlation between these sorts of crimes and the prevalence of sexual assault. The two leading lawmakers on the issue of sexual assault in the military say the proposed changes don't go far enough. New YORK Senator Kirsten Gillibrand in California Congresswoman Jackie Speier have been working with Vanessa Genz family to create I am Vaness AGAIN Act. It was strengthened legal protections and the right to anonymity for whistleblowers, including those who filed harassment complaints would also require an independent prosecution body. To investigate complaints of sexual assault or harassment, thus ending the practice of going up the military chain of command covering up or ignoring reported crimes. And it would make sexual harassment a crime in the uniform Code of Military justice. The legislation stalled in the Congress last year, but Congresswoman Spear

Let's go through a couple of these names. Give me like a thumbnail of who this person is. And then what's been happening Carter page Carter page was a adviser on the Trump campaign. He's an expert in Russia. He's also somebody who showed up in the dossier that was paid for by the DNC compiled by Christopher Steele has never been charged with anything. He's never been any evidence. Linking him to rush outside of trips that he's made which is part of it for his gas and oil business that being said he has just since his name as appeared before Senate in investigations, he has gotten death threats his oil and gas business has collapsed. Legal bills are just melting. He's been getting steady calls from this number in Oklahoma. And he's asked the FBI repeated. To look into it. And they keep blowing him off. Goodness gracious. Michael Caputo, Michael Caputo was probably one of the one of the hardest. Hit. He was a communications consultant who worked on the Trump campaign. He has been harassed. He had his daughter's threatened one of the worst sweat. Somebody told him that they hope Jeffrey Epstein rapes his two daughters horrible. They have told him that threatened to urinate on his head threatened to kill him. It's been terrible. And we've also harassed his quiet. He runs up your business and because of the harassment. He's businesses. Probably lost fifty percent of its revenue. He's laid off half the staff, they closed an office. It's just a nightmare. One of the quotes. He's he gave me the story is his legal costs from the Russia from all these meetings with malware and house panels, probably one about two hundred thousand dollars, but the lost opportunity costs to his business and his reputation. He has to make me three times. We're speaking with Jeff Murdoch Justice department reporter at the Washington Times he's written a piece about the collateral damage that's been caused by the special counsel's probe. Speaking of Mr. Caputo, you reference that California congresswoman Jackie speier had I guess referred to him as an image consultant to Putin. And he says that has caused a lot of problems. She doesn't care does. She know she doesn't that was one of the most interesting.

"Because. They're just going after to strip someone down. It's not Iran contra where got to find out what happened here, and how money ended up in one country and went to the other country. This is let me just go after the president because I have an investigative committee. Jackie speier is on the permanent select Intel committee, and she said this cut their two three two. I have thought for a very long time that the president as a real estate developer had violated what's called the Foreign Corrupt Practices act. It is a requirement that anyone doing business with a foreign entity. Make sure that none of the money that comes into a project has been laundered. And it's a concept that's hard for the average person to appreciate what is money laundering. It's going to be our job to explain that to the American people. Okay. She's felt for a long time that the president as a real estate developer had these violations that enough to feel. Well, that's I think that's a legitimate question that, you know, the allegations of money laundering, really hit not amounted anything concrete beyond the suggestion that Russians for example, we're using condos and Trump Tower as a way of laundering their money. There's also questions about this connection to a couple of banks that are known to be laundering Russian money. They also were known to be giving loans to to the Trump organization. So those have been around for a while. But the question for Democrats is do they really want to take such a broad view to create precedent for all future.

"Eight hundred eighty eight ten follow me on Twitter, send me your tweets at Ethan Bearman. Well, the president's spoke last night speaker Pelosi minority leader Schumer responded, but I saw a very interesting move by our own congresswoman Jackie speier, representing the fourteenth congressional district to point out what the problem is with this partial government shutdown the Trump shutdown and she's joining me on the phone right now Representative Jackie speier congresswoman, thanks for coming on the show today. Great to talk to you. Thank you, Ethan. First off. I just have to ask. What did you think when the president gave his Oval Office speech? What went through your mind as you were listening or watching him? He was as he often is acting like a petulant child and we found out afterwards. She really didn't want to do the address and he didn't want to go to Texas and dismissed it as a photo op. So. Unfortunately, he is. Once again proving to us that he is not presidential. And I am beginning to become very worried that he acts so impetuously that he could in fact, create great harm for not just American spat for our allies around the world. I actually completely agree with you there. And we've seen that there were norms in place that weren't necessarily codified into law that were followed for decades if not hundreds of years that he said, I don't need to follow those in our testing every single one of them. What are the things that? I did see on CBS news that I was rather pleased with because I'm frustrated with the gut partial government shutdown the Trump shut down. And I hate to see our national parks getting trashed, and I heard that Joshua tree actually had to be closed because of the damage that's happening to the park. So you brought some Trump trash. Low to the to the capital last night. Tell me about that. So I was joined by congressman. Jared Huffman and over the weekend. We went out to our Golden Gate, national recreation area in Atlanta, and in ocean beach and picked up trash, and we were joined with my volunteers at ocean beach. And what we did is we packaged up the trash took anything out that was toxic in nature. And shipped it to Washington. So we could present it to the president. And that's what we did. We went to the White House yesterday to present the trash he was unwilling to accept it. So we brought it to the capital and disposed now unwilling to accept that. You mean like when he said, this is going to be my shutdown and now he blames the Democrats. That's correct. He. He he really does not comprehend. The impact he is having across this country on federal employees on small businesses that provide services to federal employees and visitors near our parks. And the fact that Americans who are attempting to buy homes and are getting federally sponsored loans are now sitting in positions where they can't close these loans. So it is affecting everybody. It's going to start affecting aviation. It's already affecting TSA or they are calling in as having the flu. And when you have so many national security. Offices that are working without hey, whether it's the FBI customs and border patrol TSA bureau, federal prisons DA. I mean, the list is quite long, and we expect them to provide security to this country. And yet they're not getting paid. And at some point. It gets really serious. They they are paid every two weeks date that they are expecting their checks to come in is in two or three days. They're not gonna receive their checks. And so the question becomes how do they pay their mortgage? How did they pay their rent? How do they pay their utility? So I am in the process right now of trying to get credit unions throughout the bay area in my district to offer interest free loans, and I'm going to reach out to the ability to see if they can come up with some kind of a plan for federal workers. You know, it's ironic because we do not allow federal workers to strike, right? And now we expect them to work without pay. It's it doesn't isn't it computes isn't work without pay either indentured servitude. Or I mean, those are. Terms that we would use for saying you're going to work, but I'm not going to pay you the those are not things that we like to do a Representative. Jackie speier, representing the fourteenth congressional district. The peninsula's joining me on the phone right now. Congresswoman, I'm curious. I've been getting a lot of messages from listeners are either calling in sending emails Facebook. Whatever saying why and many of them are are not Republicans. But they're saying why aren't the Democrats coming up with strong compromised? For example, I've gotten messages saying why not get the DACA resolution in exchange for money for a fence slash wall. Whatever that looks like or I had another person suggest, hey, why not say give us the assault weapons ban. And we'll give you money for a wall are those things being played out within the circles of the Democratic Party in DC or or those just off the table because of what's happening with President Trump. Well, I for one support a trade of. Some billions of dollars for providing DACA children with a pathway to citizenship that hasn't been embraced by the DACA community, nor the leadership at this point. And in fairness, they don't know what that would look like that as the speaker said earlier today, you know, the president keeps moving the goalposts and pretty soon it's going to be out of the stadium. And I think that's the problem. He we also have to remember this. This is really important the president had okay d- deal. What we had passed to continue government was. Passed by the Senate and the president had green lighted it. It was not until the cable news channels that he watches started trashing him about agreeing to that. And not getting his wall that he reneged on it. So here's a president who is playing to a very small audience of maybe two or three commentators on FOX cable channels. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands almost eight hundred thousand federal employees or either working without pay or are furloughed is going to start affecting our credit rating. It's going to cost us money to have this shutdown in addition to everything else because the cost of reopening government cleaning up the mess in our national parks. The overtime that's going to have to be paid out. It is a. A disaster. And it's all of his making because this is a Stony shutdown. It should never have happened in the first place. I actually agree with you. It should never happen. This is artificial. It's being done for political game. Congresswoman Jackie speier is joining me on on the phone right now. Congressman one more question for you. I heard a Republican member in DC, essentially imply or insinuate that Democrats are not as concerned about border security national security patriotism because of their resistance to the portable. How do you respond to somebody who wants to imply that re- that Democrats not as worried about national sovereignty or or national security? So first of all that's a statement. I am as concerned about smart border security as the next person this five point seven billion dollar down payment on a wall is just that. It's a down payment we already have seven hundred miles of border, walls, I support that. But we also know that it is not necessarily very effective that people are able to tunnel under them what we do know is that the drugs coming into the United States, Washington not coming in through ports of entry. We don't have the proper scanning machines to scan the semi trucks coming through to be able to detect it. We should be investing that five billion dollars in more scanning material, we should be investing it in more border patrol agents. More immigration judge. Judges more ground sensors. You know, we we need a smart tack border system, and this edifice complex that the president has is really a waste of money. And what he doesn't appreciate because he's never really tried to understand government is that if you're gonna take five billion dollars to spend it on this wasteful product. You're gonna have to take it away from somewhere else. What are you gonna take it away from you gonna take it away from border patrol agents? Are you going to take it away from the defense? We have over two thousand servicemembers right now at the border in San Diego, I visited them on Christmas Eve, they are not doing the kind of training. They should be doing to be ready in case of a real national crisis. They're sitting there and have been sitting there since early November because it was the time and effort by the president to fabricate this crisis at the border, and so he sent down all of these troops. But they've now missed thanksgiving and Christmas and new years with their families, and there's no end date for their mission. He is. He is so irresponsible. And the way he has governing that we should all take a step back and recognize that there is something fundamentally wrong Representative Jackie speier. Thank you so much. I always appreciate your time coming on the show. Thank you. Thank you either. Absolutely. Really? Appreciate her time. And and getting her her take on all of that. So I wanna take your calls on what's happening at the border, which he suggested also boy, I I want to go back to this Russia story with Manafort this is really damning four one five eighty eight ten. Environment on K G L eight ten. We need to try to get around the bay area. Avoid all those.

"Similar tweets at Ethan Bearman coming up in about ten minutes. Eleven minutes congresswoman, Jackie speier will join me. Of course, she represents the fourteenth district on the peninsula. She has a few words about the partial government shutdown and what the president said last night joining me from the Washington Post right now senior political reporter Aaron Blake to discuss the prime time. I'm calling it the event last night Aaron. I did we learn anything last night. Anything new? I think maybe we just learned that the president isn't especially going to be changing up here that he views this as as being almost completely about keeping the base intact. And that there's really no kind of new argument in this whole debate, which lead us in a position, which we were to start with and have been for the large portion of the last nineteen days. Which is there's not really any movement on this whole thing. And we have no idea when it's gonna end. Yeah. I know that's an interesting point Aaron Blake from the Washington Post is joining me on the phone is really that's what it's like. I would add one thing to what you said in that is he's not comfortable reading a written speech. He is way more interested in energetic and animated at one of his campaign events or excuse me, you know, the rallies out in in public as opposed to sitting behind a desk in front of a camera. Look, I actually I think that probably applies to most every politician. I think that we always underestimate how. Difficult. It is to give a compelling, and and kind of moving statement direct to camera for a long period of time even ten minutes versus an hour for like a state of the union address, it it's just it's not an easy thing to do. And it's definitely not in the president's element. He likes to be kind of free wheeling. He likes to feed off the crowds. And I you know, I would even argue that the democratic response with a little bit awkward from. Hello. Awkward. But we've seen this over and over again, I I mean, usually it's in the form of those of the responses to the to the the state of the union addresses. You know, after the president is given the forum of having an audience that can respond to him and maybe cheer his points, and he can turn back and forth. And and things like that. You have this person sitting in a room with just a camera? And it looks kind of weird and it's never easy to do. Right. So I chalk that maybe less up to President Trump being who he is and more to kind of the format of the Oval Office address. Maybe this is why we haven't seen a whole lot of Oval Office addresses from the president so far. It's a good point on all all points there. So you you have a piece in the Washington Post Aaron Blake for you know, you kind of highlight what he talked about. What is I always want to make sure to point out president didn't lie about everything? Last name are things that we can fact check. But there is a humanitarian crisis at the porter. And that seems to be what is being lost in a lot of this right now is why are you hearing anything from either side that gee, we really can do something about this. While there's a debate about the wall, and I'm not talking about even ending the partial government shutdown. But by golly, we we do have a humanitarian crisis on the border. He was right in pointing now. I mean, his approach I think is wrong. But there is a humanitarian crisis. Right. I I would point out two things about that. The first is that that was maybe the one thing that stuck out mostly to me about the speech was bad. There did seem to be an effort at least in the first one third to half of it to kind of reach out this olive branch. About an argument that both sides could be sympathetic to when it comes to humanitarian crisis. There's actually data that supports that while illegal immigration and border apprehensions are way down from their P class decade. There is actually and it has been in recent months, a record number of families who have been detained in that creates the problems as far as whether you detain them. You have to detain them separately. Of course, we had the whole family separation debate. But the second part of that. And I think one thing that maybe gets lost in all of this is however much agreement there is about the idea of humanitarian crisis on the border, the border wall does not solve that problem because these people are buying large families that are going to legal ports of entry. They are not trying to immigrate illegally they are seeking asylum. And so you can build a border wall along that whole entire border and these families. I can still go to those ports of entry at which point the government has to do something with them. And so, you know, I it may very well be the case to the humanitarian crisis exists and that something needs to be done about it. The idea that the wall is going to prevent that or deal with it in some way is an argument that I don't think is going to be compelling for for really anybody who studies this issue, very very closely. So on a big picture question while I have you for another minute. Aaron Blake from the Washington Post. You know, you get a lot of information, I don't necessarily see, but I just saw go across a Chiron on TV here that said. Lisa Murkowski, just confronted President Trump over this. And apparently is unhappy. I yet at the same time the president's tweeting that the GOP's unified. Are you seeing or hearing that there is some unhappiness within the Republican ranks over this partial government shutdown that President Trump in his own words owns his shutdown? It's the Trump shut down. Yeah. To the extent that we've we've seen the lawmakers weighing on the so far we have seen Murkowski we have seen Susan Collins and Cory Gardner who has a tough reelection race in Colorado all breaking with this strategy to varying degrees. That's three Republican senators, which basically leaves fifty Republican senators at this point, hassle the Senate who is supportive of the strategy early haven't come out against it. And this is really the tipping point here. The president can hold out as long as he wants to. But it's relatively clear that if the the wheel is is lost in the Senate Republican caucus for this fight. They can pass something right now they can pass what the house passed, and it would probably have a veto proof amount of support. So the president by drawing this out is really tempting that a potential outcome in which party would be voting against him. I don't think that were there at this point. But the moment that Republicans start worrying about what this means for their electoral futures. For their party's future. They're going to have to confront a decision about whether they want to continue to invest their political futures in a fight that I'm not convinced a lot of them truly believe in in their heart of hearts, and and and just go back to before this whole thing began, basically, the Republican Senate was prepared to pass a clean government funding Bill. So they were gonna do that initially. So, you know, I I don't think this is necessarily the fight that they want and and we're going to find out how much they're willing to stick by the president moving forward if he really wants to draw this out Washington Post senior political reporter Aaron Blake thanks for coming on and giving us the scoop from DC appreciated Aaron thank you. Thank you. Absolutely. Coming up next congresswoman, Jackie speier. It's going to give us her comments on the partial government shutdown and what the president said last night from the Oval Office for one five eight hundred eighty eight ten. K G.

"Live from NPR news in Washington. I'm Dave Mattingly. Employers in the US added two hundred one thousand jobs last month as the nation's jobless rate held steady unemployment remained at three point nine percent. That's near an eighteen year, low hourly wages rose and are two point nine percent higher than this time a year ago. Wells Fargo senior economist Sarah house says that's significant wages are rising at the fastest pace. We've we've seen this expansion.
