There now is different than a corona virus, which is a much more difficult organism to create a vaccine for then H, one one, which was a form of flu, but nonetheless. we put a lot of energy into not just the development of the vaccine, but having a vaccine distribution plan. Why can't we match the success of other countries that have pretty much successfully? Gotten to very low numbers well, we had that opportunity. We let it go. We were slow to the ball. we were slow to the ball on testing slow to the ball.

They have a bit more time, but for Berkeley and merced said were really having to go back and. Revisit the density of the dorms. that will be safe. revisit the number and types of classes that can be offered in person. I think the bulk of the academic program. will be online by by necessity, but We still want to have some in person classes to the extent that we can do so safely, so we had some initial plans in the beginning of July, the resurgence happens, and you have to be agile and flexible in these circumstances, so we're going to go. like I said revisit what what had been. planned.

Classes that are in the performing arts or studio arts were there is a significant and unique value.

Living we have students, for whom the dorm is, actually the best place for them to live, they may not have an adequate housing situation otherwise and also. We know that dormitory life is part of what what young people what out of college or out of colleges and universities like the University of California so we want facilitate that to the extent we can.

"We were able to to dr illegal immigration down the forty plus year lows and <hes> we did it without having a family separation policy dan we did it without building a wall what we did do on that regard is we did complete all but about forty forty miles of the seven hundred miles of fencing called for in a statue called the secure fence act and putting that at physical structure where it would do the most good in terms of helping in a way steer illegal migration into areas where we could more easily detected and pick it up but we did not and i would not and i would not recommend building nineteen hundred and forty mile wall along the entire expanse of the border. I don't think that that makes much sense in terms of our overall for all immigration enforcement one of the things we did was to instill priorities that we would focus our deportations -tations we would focus them on those who had committed serious felonies or at least three serious misdemeanors those those who are known security risks those who are known gang members and those who we had apprehended right at the border before they got got into the interior of the united states and and had <hes> set down roots here for example and so within a few years about ninety eight percent of the deportations that <hes> the obama administration conducted fell within those categories now in the current administration they've they've they've basically removed all of those priorities <hes> so that anyone is fair game and <hes> they've also reinstituted rooted workplace raids we stopped workplace raids because too often they just rounded up workers and didn't focus on the employers employers themselves who were benefiting from <hes> having undocumented labor and so we switched to a process of auditing there i nine paperwork and if we <hes> show that there was massive non compliance with i nine and then we bring a case against the employer themselves right now having some kind of comprehensive immigration reform covering everything from the border order to child arrivals to employers that seems far fetched. It's there's so many attempts that have been made in so many walls that have been hit so what quick fixes should or or could be done to address some of this in this charged political climate well. I think think very straightforward. One is to put what's known as the daca program deferred action for childhood arrivals. These are the so-called called dreamers. Young people brought here <hes> typically as young children younger than the age of six on average who have grown up in the united states aids have done everything we've asked of them. We have several thousand of them. At the university of california where i'm currently serving as president to put into statute that the immigration laws will not be enforced against them and that they are entitled to work authorization and so forth worth you know when we did daca there was actually <hes> very little push back in the congress to it very little and and the polling on it show that it had broad bipartisan support both as a matter of our values as a matter of of our humanitarian <hes> values and as a matter of common sense so you know perhaps <hes> the congress should start dr with and issues that there's already considerable public support for it's a it's an identifiable population then let let's put that in statute and then you know you you can work from there. Nothing succeeds like success right so if maybe if if they can get something done on immigration they can then take another step. During the obama administration. We were very committed to trying to achieve. She what's known as comprehensive immigration reform kind of everything from border security to visa reform to who pathway to citizenship earned citizenship for those already in the country illegally and a comprehensive lebron's bill did pass the senate in twenty thirteen and it passed with bipartisan vote but <hes> immigration politics and that in the house representatives where such that the republican speaker basically said we're not doing anything on immigration and and and the effort died lost lost opportunity for the country lost opportunity you know for the house of representatives to to show that it can deal with even difficult issues in a bipartisan way so but as time has gone on the partisan rancor over over immigration has hardened to such a degree that i think we're.

"That was the perception report and unfortunately there the report overall was very very present in terms of the kind of terrorism <hes> we've seen certainly in the last couple of years in the united states but you know i apologize for the report to the veterans groups we withdrew the report in order to to rewrite the reference to veterans <hes> ultimately the report <hes> was reissued in a different form and format but yeah it was it was one of those instances where perception got in the way of reality you make the point in your book that we may never know so what impact a more deftly worded warning could have had in averting this epidemic. We now have of mass shootings but you do say honestly it probably would not have made a whole lot of difference even if perfectly worded to get the message across without that kind of reaction. Why do you think so why be pessimistic about the ability of a government report to call attention to a problem like this well. I think i was pessimistic because government reports sports don't have a tradition of by themselves having a major public impact in other words. If for government the report of a major public impact it has to be accompanied by something it has to be accompanied by say the press <hes> acting as a megaphone four what's in that report or the congress taking up <hes> the issues raised in the report but the government produces thousands of reports is that just kind of slide under the radar and they go on somebody's backbench again and honestly americans aren't always the best at recognizing nizing around blind spots. Are we yeah. No you know we're <hes> human beings generally aren't <hes> and really. I think we've seen seen the terrorism that affects the domestic united states the form of terrorism to kind of terrorism that affects the domestic united states has evolved right under our nose. It hasn't been static. You know as i said earlier. Islamist groups certainly exist throughout the world. They've certainly carried out successful attacks in other countries but they haven't been able to the domestic united states other types <hes> terrorists have let's explore that in the context of the debate that's an playing out not only on the pages of law fair but elsewhere over the last few weeks six which is whether should domestic terrorism should be a federal crime. Some people say no we have laws on the books that deal with most of the activities that we would label as domestic terrorism others say that it's useful to show that the federal government really cares about this but also that it can enable more a robust charging at the planning stages by use of conspiracy and attempt provision as we have in other legislation. How do you feel about the movement to make domestic terrorism a federal crime. You know i think that is something that we should definitely consider. You know the way that we handle domestic terrorism if it's going to be handled as a federal crime is to try to put it into the hate crime context or something of that sort where there is a an existing federal statute but when you hear the f._b._i. Or you hear the local u._s. Attorney talk about the case. They'll talk about it as domestic terrorism case and so i think most it's americans think we do have a log domestic terrorism and the fact is that we don't and i think for clarity purposes for for for prosecutors to be able to have a straight forward charge that matches the actual kind and criminal behaviour. We are trying to investigate and to and to sanction. I think <hes> having a federal statute makes a lot of sense all right unless shift to immigration you make the point in your book that early in the obama administration more agents were assigned to the border and there were deportations there were the efforts to gain credibility with congress to enable comprehensive immigration reform to develop why didn't that work and what affected that have on national security during the last ten years and let me start with the national security aspect numb i and that is that the southwest border is not in and of itself a security risk to the people of the united states..

"Had no adequate the plans for what would happen. If there were a spill a mile beneath the surface of the of the ocean and during the time when that's spill was underway we had the the <hes> times square bomber where an individual had a truck with explosives that fortunately was reported by <hes> just a civilian who who saw this truck that looked a little unusual and etc turn it over to new york city police and <hes> before you know it we were in a in a chase to identify and capture the times square bomber so that was going on at the same time as the the b._p. The oil spill and at the same time we it was tornado season and we had some vicious tornadoes in the southeastern eastern united states so you know the role of the d. h. S. secretary and the role of the department is to be able to manage wjr and to respond to sustain and affective communications about all these kinds of events that happen on a regular base now. Let's get to some of the specific issues within your portfolio that focused primarily on national security issues core issues first among them during much of your tenure of course would have been preventing terrorism which helped spur the creation of deitch s in the first place one aspect of protecting the homeland of course is is pushing the border out things like addressing the push factors in central america that are driving people toward the border or increasing intelligence cooperation with friendly the government's posting customs officers at foreign airports but what about one that began before your arrival but really solidified during your tenure a successful restful program. That probably doesn't get as much attention as it should. Which is the container security initiative. How did you deal with efforts like that as d._j. Secretary well the you know. The theory is exactly as you just said which is to push the borders out because if we you want until terrorists or potential bombers or what have you reached the borders of the united states we've decreased our ability any to mitigate that threat so one of the things that we worked on <hes> very hard was the aftermath of the so called underwear bomber so underwear bomber was christmas day of two thousand nine individual who got on a plane and logos and <hes> then was <hes> switched planes at skip airport in amsterdam and when he entered he was flying to detroit when he entered u._s. Airspace space he had some explosives packed in his underwear that he attempted to detonate he did that nate fortunately they didn't work work very well and his fellow passenger saw the smoke and the flight attendants and the passengers put out the fire but we realized in reverse engineering hiring you know how did this individual get on a plane get into u._s. Airspace with explosives in his underwear that we had too much coach in about passengers <hes> that we weren't sharing abroad effectively <hes> so that <hes> for for example with the underwear bomber if information we had about him had been made available in amsterdam before he even boarded a plane for the united states he would have been pulled into secondary inspection and inspection they would have found the explosives then i'll likely and so oh we began and <hes> really an international effort we work with the international civil aviation organization which is part of the u._n. <hes> we hosted regional air security conferences all over the world assembled new international airport security protocols the calls that were adopted by <hes> i- k._o.

There is hurricane season. That's what we're entering entering into right now for now. We're getting the atlantic side hurricanes.

I spoke with secretary napolitano's by phone a couple of days ago to talk about the whole range of issues that homeland security encompasses some of the things that she tried to do that didn't work some of the things things she did that she thinks worked pretty well and some of the things she thinks that this administration could be doing better.

Reflections is on your time as homeland security secretary injure insights on what could have been better and what's going wrong now. Give us an answer to the question you pose in your book title. How safe are we. You know an answer to the question posed by my book title <hes> i would say it depends on <hes> some areas in some areas who are definitely safer than we were before nine eleven it would be impossible for commercial airliners to be weaponized the way they were on nine eleven and floated into iconic buildings but new risks have emerged and i fear we are not paying sufficient attention to them <hes> their risks associated with global warming their risk exc associated with cybersecurity and the risks associated with mass gun violence and we've seen the manifestation of of those risks increase over the last few years but there seems to be no kind of national strategy to deal with them. You know let's let's drill down on. Some of those probably most of those in a few minutes but first. I have to say that when you were secretary you know what it was like every morning getting briefings where were you had everything from intelligence to customs actions to weather forecasts.
What is fetal tissue research? And why is it important to medicine?
"So let's talk about fetal tissue research. You've probably heard that. The Trump administration has made a determination that they are going to ban fetal tissue research. This is outrageous, and why why why do this? This is something that I'm grappling with. It doesn't make any sense to me. What is the reason for such a ban, the tissue exists, and the tissue can provide valuable information? The research on fetal tissue has done remarkable things. There was a statement that was issued from Janet. Polito Janet Napolitano said the Trump administration delta blow today to scientific discovery and medical advancement fetal. Tissue research, has helped find cures for millions of Americans who suffer from debilitating diseases while improving the quality of life for others. It has fundamentally changed the practice of medicine including advances in polio measles, and chickenpox vaccine's as well as treatments for Parkinson's and rheumatoid arthritis and cutting edge research on HIV and Alzheimer's disease. The importance of fetal tissue research, ham, be overstated and today's action is a step backward, for science, the university of California will continue to fight for the critical life, saving research that Americans have come to expect and rely on from our nation's scientific community. You know, when it comes to fetal tissue research, I think some people don't quite understand what we're talking about when, when abortion is performed. There is. Issue that is removed from the woman's uterus. That's the tissue that is the tissue. That is used. And there are ethics standards that are used in the procuring of that tissue. As a matter of fact, it was published recently by the American Medical Association in order to protect the interests of pregnant women as well as the integrity of science physicians who are involved in research, that uses human fetal tissues, should a of stained from offering money in exchange for fetal tissue. In all instances of the woman's voluntary informed consent in keeping with ethics guidance, including when using fetal tissue from spontaneous abortion. That's a miscarriage for purposes of research, or transplantation, informed, consent includes a disclosure of the nature of the research including the purpose of using fetal tissue as well as informing the woman of right to refuse to participate. In sure that when fetal tissue from an. Induced, emotion is used for research purposes. And that's when we talk about abortions, where usually not talking about a spontaneous abortion, we refer to that as a miscarriage. So induced abortion is the procedure where a woman has opted to terminate a pregnancy. So with that tissue the woman's decision to terminate the pregnancy is made prior to and independent of any discussion of using the fetal tissue for research purposes. Decisions regarding the technique used to induce abortion and the timing of the abortion in relation to the station age of the fetus are based on concern for the safety of the pregnant woman ensure that when fetal tissue is to be used for transplantation in research, or clinical care. The donor does not designate the recipient of the two tissue. Both the donor and the recipient of the tissue. Give voluntary informed consent and ensure that healthcare personnel involved in the termination of a pregnancy do not benefit from their participation. In the termination, or from use of the fetal tissue for transplantation. These are important ethical standards and there have been so many advancements through fetal tissue research, and those include a testing the efficacy of rubella, vaccines, detection, and treatment of our h in incompatibility, that's an immune system mismatch, between the mother and the fetus, the development of diagnostic techniques including amniocentesis, ultra Sinaga graffiti, and cry cry

But I think the state can be in play someone you might say in the polygon tradition. Yeah. You can't say it, but I can say so you, you, you have this new book called how safe are we? And so I guess the appropriate question is how safe are we? And how things changed since you. You took over in two thousand and nine when the there was this. You know, we were still dealing with in a very real way, this the threat of, of terrorism. Yeah, I think in some areas, we are certainly safer than we were before nine eleven. For example, it's virtually impossible to think that a plot similar to what we saw nine eleven where people take over commercial aircraft and weaponize, them and fly them into buildings that really can't happen anymore. But one of the reasons I wrote the book was. To argue that risks to our homeland security continued to evolve and, and if we kind of miss allocate, misjudge, what risks are real versus those that are kind of theater Lee Ann in essence put the country in greater danger. So and you you, you make very clear that the action is shifting to cyber right in a big way. It's sifted to to cyber. It's shifted to the risks associated with global warming. And the, the increasing incidence of mask gun violence, the border in contrast is not a safety risk to Americans..

"That's, that's a strategy, and that's really the strategy we use during the Obama administration and we drove illegal migration down to forty year plus lows in the current administration despite the rhetoric and the kind of shutting down the government over funding for the wall at cetera. You're actually seeing the numbers come back up again. So whatever they're doing. Certainly not having the effect of deterring any illegal migration, and it's not helping solve the problem. A couple of things you, you were one of I said, you were tough as a governor, you at excuse me, a concern about violence in communities along the border. That is what the that is the specter that the president has raised that violent immigrants crossing the border bands of marauding, immigrants, and so on, what is the what is the truth of that? And how concerned should people be? So when in the early two thousands and, and this is when I was attorney general and governor by then the federal government had put something called operation gatekeeper in place in San Diego to wanna and they had put something called operation hold the line in the past. Oh, warez area. And those two operations had the function of driving. Funneling it right into what's called the Tucson sector, right into AirAsia. So that in two thousand and three I think it was over half the border patrol apprehensions in the country were in that one sector. It really was overrun. It was not under control under the Obama administration and and building on some of the work that had been done by President Bush's administration. We actually shutdown that Tucson sector, and we had it under control so that the same dynamics didn't didn't apply. And we completed all, but about fifty miles of structure, wall or fencing that had been identified by the experts as to what was necessary along the border. That's. There's a big difference between that and saying, you got to build a nineteen hundred and forty mile wall. And I used to say as governor, you know, show me a ten foot wall, and I'll show you an eleven foot ladder. And, and so, again, the notion that a single physical structure is, is sufficient, it just it just doesn't match without the border works. Yeah. Do you think Democrats make a mistake though speaker Pelosi called the low wall? Immoral back. I picked up, I think she was speaking about the symbolic. Yeah. Symbolic wall that you're talking about. But. Do crafts run the risk here of, of being positioned by the president as looking insufficiently strong on this issue. I you know, I worry about that, you know, I think the democratic message should be we want border enforcement, too, but it needs to be smart. And it needs to. Matched the need for the lawful traffic and trade to be able to traverse through the ports with our need to make sure that illegal crossings are kept to a minimum, and there are strategies that have been demonstrated to work. Those are the strategies that ought to be funded. Not not a wall. We should point out that one of the elements of the Obama program that you helped administer a DA just an ice were was under your Egypt was a pretty aggressive deportation program for people in this country..

But yeah, confirmation went all the way to a cloture vote in the Senate for a US attorney position because I had the fortune or misfortune of being the first person associated with Anita hill, who had to come before the Senate Judiciary committee, for confirmation, and the and they had a memory of that. And hey back is held. Yeah. So, but Meanwhile I was in the job. So it was like okay, come on. And so that, that made you obvious candidate for attorney general. What was it like making the transition to, to campaigning to raising money to doing the things that politicians have to do? So it was interesting because the Democratic Party at the time in Arizona, was almost non-existent. So there was no kind of structure that I could feed into. So I, I had one campaign worker, young man who'd worked with me at the US tourneys office. We had this dumpy little office in a very CD part of Phoenix, you know, to card table, some folding chairs a couple of phone lines and I would literally go in there and make cold calls to raise money, you know, five six hours a day. And then we try to set up house parties. And, and then I you know, on the weekends I'd go do parades and county fairs and all those kinds of things and, you know, slowly, but surely, you know, we built an organization and we're able to raise enough money in order to win the race. How? Talk to me, a second about money and fundraising, you know, the biggest lament you hear from members of congress, for example. Now is how much of their time they have to spend raising money and, you know, you're right for an office, like attorney general, which is a kind of it's a down galleries. And but also, it's a, you know, the authority your law enforcement person, you're asking people to support support, you, but just generally because you openly ran for governor how how much did you dislike having to sit on that phone and raise money all day? Oh, I don't think any candidate really enjoys that part of that job. But you gotta do it. Maybe Chuck Schumer. Maybe. It's and you have to discipline yourself to do it. I think most candidates procrastinate they find something else they have to do at cetera. But in the end if you don't have the funds. Needed to your, your your, your staff in the media buys and all the rest. Yeah, you're toast, and then four years later, you ran for governor Zona. I remember this very well because everybody was so excited that there was a viable candidate for. Of Arizona, and you won you won narrowly you ended up winning re-election by a landslide which says something about about how you conducted yourself there. But, you know, you were very much someone who was, you know, you, you had a lot of vetoes, but you also were someone who would negotiate across party lines. There's this, there's this big debate now about about compromise about the kinds of things that one has to do in a democracy that you and estate that was, you know, obviously, you are democrat. He had to deal with Republicans in the legislature. You must have some strong feelings about that. The sort of. No compromise run over the opposition..

"Arizona attorney general on nine eleven and what it was like to assume the heavy burden of protecting America when she took over as only the fourth secretary of homeland security less than a decade later. She likens her former job to finding a needle in a haystack and warns that the best approach isn't just to burn down the whole haystack. She reveals how the department quickly evolved to address terrorism two point. Oh, but how even in her darkest imagination? She says she never could have envisioned a hostile foreign government interfering in a US election. She takes to task politicians who are more interested in what she calls security theater than actual homeland security, and then the former border state governor has a few choice words for President Trump on immigration and explains how the concept of pushing out the borders stops, bad guys and bad things from entering our country long before they even get here. Plus, she shares how she's working to address the college admission scandal in her role as president. Of the university of California board of regents, and what's the worst part about spending a day as a TSA screener coming up with Janet Napolitano in just a moment. Janet Napolitano served as secretary of homeland security from two thousand nine to twenty thirteen before that she was US attorney attorney general and then governor of Arizona. She was the first woman to chair the national governor's association and was named one of the nation's top five governors by time magazine since two thousand thirteen she has served as the president of the university of California. And now she's written a new book, titled how safer we homeland security since nine eleven Janet Napolitano, welcome to the podcast. Thank you. Well, since you begin the book with nine eleven and the department of homeland security began really with nine eleven I suppose, it's only fitting that I start by asking what that day was like for you. Oh, it was such a memorable day as as it is for for so many of us, but I was serving as the attorney general of Arizona, and I was. Getting for work early in the morning, and I had the radio on and the newscaster said that a plane had hit the World Trade Center, and that apparently it was an air traffic control problem and then a second plane hit the World Trade Center, and I just knew immediately that this was not air traffic control that this was an attack and went out and turn the TV on and started seeing the early news reports got on the phone with my staff. So we could start thinking through what that meant for us in Arizona within a few minutes..

This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Molly would. In a new book, the former head of the department of homeland security Janet Napolitano says it is quote impossible to overstate the urgency of improving our country's cybersecurity. We're vulnerable all over the place from critical infrastructure like utilities and nine one one dispatch systems to our elections and our personal data. But there are lots of federal agencies in charge of this. And they have to work with lots of private companies. I spoke with Janet Napolitano about her new book. How safe are we? And I asked her what she wishes her agency had done differently. Well, I think one key gap was our inability to have formulated national cyber security standards that were mandatory not voluntary. Can I jump in? And clarify quickly do mean standards for companies like mandatory standards that. Companies would have to for those that own and operate critical infrastructure got it and because of that we've really outsourced to the private sector. A key area of what is involved in our national security. It's the only area of national security where we've left it primarily in private hands. And I'm concerned that that just does not go far enough. Well, and you mention possibly incentivizing the private sector to invest more in its own security infrastructure, maybe through tax credits in a federal insurance program. But do you think it needs to be combined with them higher standards and regulations, you know, I think ideally, so but in the absence of mandatory government regulation, which is always tricky to accomplish. I think we could do more to incentivize the private sector through tax credits through the ability to buy into basically a federal government insurance program that. If they met certain standards would cover excess losses that were attributable to a cyber attack and those kinds of tactics have worked in other areas. And I see no reason why they wouldn't work here. Then he doing this. Right. You know, their country that you can point to as really doing a good job and cybersecurity attack prevention, you know, not yet. And that's why I think there is a role here to be played by the community of nations coming together, they can do so through their security agencies. They can try to bring together their major companies their major utility operators and owners and the like, but to create some kind of international understanding, some kind of a global treaty on cyber would be a place to start Janet. Napolitano was the secretary of homeland security from two thousand nine to two thousand thirteen her new book is called house. Safe. Are we homeland security since nine eleven so far only one person in the crowded field of twenty twenty presidential candidates has made cybersecurity a top concern. Former Maryland Representative John Delaney proposed an independent agency to tackle it. And now for some related links. You heard Janet Napolitano say that a government insurance program could be one possibility for incentivizing companies to improve their security. Well, the New York Times had an amazing story Tuesday about hacking and insurance that sort of the opposite kind of cautionary tale. It's about how since 2017 some insurance companies have been using something called a war. Exclusion clause to deny insurance claims to companies that are hit by big cyber-attacks, snack foods company Mondays was hit by a cyber attack in 2017 called not Petiot that US officials said originated in Russia and its insurance company refused to pay almost one hundred million dollars in damages. Mondays has sued and pharmaceutical giant Merck sued. It's insurance company after the not patio cyber strike cost. It nearly seven hundred million dollars in damages. The insurance companies said Merck and Monte is were the victims of a cyber war. It is a fascinating story. You can find a link to it at our website marketplace, tech dot org. The court cases are still playing out. But I think you'd have a hard time finding a cybersecurity expert who would say that we are not in fact in a cyber war a piece in the military.

Right-wing extremism in America: A growing threat?
"Be terrorists aren't labelled as such as something that I think is affecting our society, and we don't hold doesn't hold the same level of fear and hatred towards the terrorists that are committing these acts when person has a black or Brown skin. Daryl Christian mentioned, how more Americans have been killed on US soil by domestic groups than by quote, unquote, foreign jihadists, there was a study out in September that showed almost two. Thirds of the terror attacks in the US law steering 2017 carried out by right wing extremists. You worked in government in the department of homeland security is this a point that is knowledged by experts in the field within government. The politicians forget the Republicans in congress will the president's people analysts in government, do they notice this accepted across the board. Really not because a lot of the analysts have focused on international terrorism are totally in the dark when it comes to domestic non Islamic terrorism. So I think there's a lot of ignorance out there misunderstandings. It doesn't help. When you have government leaders and administrations that are putting forth the notion that the only form of terrorism are from those with Brown skin with funny sounding names who dress differently. So it needs to be acknowledged needs to be called out. And one of the things I've been trying to educate the public about is these acts that we often dismiss as. You know, hate crime or the act of a crazed gunman are in fact, ideologically motivated and meet the definition of terrorism and get cold terrorism by the media, and we'll come back to that. In a moment just on being ignored in government and not taken seriously you, of course, produced this report in two thousand nine for the at warning of a resurgent right wing extremism off to the election of the first black president after a financial crash lost e a piece for the Washington Post saying I won't of right wing violence in two thousand nine Republicans objected Iowa's, right? Tell us what happened in two thousand. And what did the Republicans? Do what does the Obama administration to because we have so much criticism of the Trump administration when it comes to tackling Fara extremes of what did the Beaumont should do with your report and with your unit? Well, unfortunately, it was a young administration. Janet Napolitano had just been sworn in secretary of homeland security. The report was published in the very beginning of April of two thousand. Nd eight or two thousand nine and so she had only been in her position for three months. The public affairs office was just getting up and running with its political appointees. So I think the media backlash from Fox News. And then the congressional backlash from the Republicans really caught the administration off guard. And then initially they tried to defend it. But then as the outcry from the conservatives and the Republicans grew they pretty much backed away from it and decided to just cave in to the political pressure and within the space of a year. According to your Washington Post piece, quote, they would know intelligence analysts DHS working on domestic terrorism threats punishing. Yeah. Basically we were put under pressure. I we were reassigned to do other analytical duties, they kind of told us in the interim, this is just going to be a short term temporary assignment. But then as the months drew on. And we started. In the handwriting on the wall that they were not going to reconstitute the effort, and it's a horrible way to vindicated, isn't it? You know, happy about being proved. Right. It's it's people you won't people years ago, even before Trump and people didn't listen to you. Yes. Very sobering. It's also very frustrating because you know, as an intelligence professional, I was trained to do my job. And I did it to the best of my ability and pretty much because of the political firestorm that ensued. The message got lost. So conservatives were not happy in two thousand nine two thousand ten with what you're saying Donald Trump becomes president. And you have a conservative president and a Republican party. That's even more bent on focusing on quote, unquote, Islamist Jihadist threats and not focusing on domestic extremists threats Christian your organization at the time life off to hate which you co-founded which helped Neo Nazis get out of the movement as you did. And we'll come to your story in a moment. But your organization had its funding cut as soon as Donald Trump became president. Didn't it he we we applied. For a grant under the Obama administration that was part of a d h s grant, and we had one it. We were going to develop an online intervention program to essentially intervene in situations. Just like the situation in Pittsburgh prior to those events happening so much radicalization is happening online. And then the administration changed we were patiently waiting for four hundred thousand dollar check out of the thirty one groups that were promised this grant came back in under Trump's administration that. The reassess the rules and out of the thirty one groups we were the only organization that was rescinded its funding and interesting in interestingly enough, we were the only organization that was completely focused on forwarding white supremacist recruitment. Well, so this is accidental stuff. This is willful this is intentional. Let me ask you this as someone who has moved out of the Neo Nazi far right movement. How important is it to have organizations like free radicals like life off to hate with funding from the government or anyone else providing some support to people who want to leave that movement to to who want to leave a life of hate behind. Well, I think it's critical. We have social services for for other parts of our society that are struggling that may be marginalized than just like the thousands of foreign fighters who will be coming back from places like Syria in the future. You know? We're facing a situation where we have potentially hundreds of thousands of young people who. Are now part of this white nationalist are all right movement who are going to need to find a way to to find support to to leave those types of movements in the future. It was very difficult for me to leave the white supremacist movement. When I was twenty three years old and ninety five. Because not because of the ideology I had questioned the ideology for the eight years that I was involved. What was difficult was leaving that sense of identity community and purpose behind it was all that I had known in my life. And that was the biggest roadblock for me, actually, disengaging and Christian when you look at someone like robot, bow is the alleged shooter in Pittsburgh who has a long history of kind of Neo Nazi like, an anti semitic and conspiratorial and hateful statements on social media. Do you look at him and say, wow, that someone potentially we could have helped. Absolutely. You know, in fact, most of the people that I work with and I've worked with, you know, hundreds help them disengage, you know, Bowers story is very typical of the people that I work with radicalized through online propaganda and conspiracy theories. Marginalized through most of their youth found a sense of identity and community in this movement. And because perhaps they may have no nothing else in their lives, and they may have felt powerless this brings him the power that they need, and when they decide to take to the next level and become a lone wolf or to act in the name of their ideology. There are lots of people like that out there there, you know, at one point in my life being a fairly well adjusted kid there were moments where I was stockpiling weapons and preparing for a race war and encouraging other people to do. So, you know, and there are people who gravitate to these movements because part of what the recruiters do is. They're looking for people that they can swoop in and promised paradise to essentially, and that's a common theme not just with white supremacist, but in all types of extremist movements. It's about painting the other as as you know, subhuman in Yvonne, and that must be eliminated. So when we talk about painting the other as evil. Let's cut to the chase. What role does the commander in chief the president of the United States? Donald Trump play in old of this this morning, Monday morning. He tweeted that he tweeted another attack on quote, the fake news media, the true enemy of the people equaled him. He also tweeted about invasion from this caravan from Honduras, an invasion of gang members and very bad people. This is what he tweeted all the worst attack on Jews in American history. Allegedly by a guy who believed this caravan was coming to invade us with terrorists and other people who were gonna change America. How is that? No incitement, Darryl tells them it is incitement, and I've been talking about this at least for the past three or four years about the tone of the rhetoric blaming the victims in this case by saying, well, if you would have had an armed guard in your synagogue, you could have prevented this attack from happening. That's the wrong answer. He needs to be. Deming the ideologies that create these fertile grounds for people to scapegoat and to target other people and to mobilize violence he needs to denounce the conspiracy theories rather than perpetuate them. He needs to change his language using words such as
