Congressional Inquiry Faults Boeing And FAA Failures For Deadly 737 Max Plane Crashes
"Congressional inquiry inquiry has has found found damning damning evidence evidence of of failures failures at at both both Boeing Boeing and and at at the the Federal Federal Aviation Aviation Administration Administration in in the the development development and and certification certification of of the the 7 7 37 37 Max, Max, the report says. Thes failures contributed to to Mac's plane crashes, killing 346 people NPR's David Shaper. The House Transportation Committee investigation finds that there was no singular technical floor pilot failure that led to the deadly 7 37 Max. Plane crashes in Indonesia in October of 2018 in Ethiopia the following March. Instead, it describes the circumstances that led up to them almost like a perfect storm, calling it the horrific culmination of a series of faulty technical assumptions by Boeing's engineers. The lack of transparency on the part of Boeing's management and grossly insufficient oversight by the FAA. The report details Boeing's flawed design of a new automated flight control system on the plane and mistakes and using outdated and faulty assumptions of pilot response, as well as a culture of concealment. Keeping information from the FAA, its customers and the pilots who would fly the plane. There's something that came out of this that's just mind boggling. House Transportation Committee Chairman Peter DeFazio oversaw the inquiry and says What's mindboggling is that both bowing in the FAA contend they followed proper procedures. And found the 7 37 Max to be compliant. That's the bureaucratic word it was compliant, but the problem is, it was compliant and not safe and people died. The report also details how Boeing employees were under enormous pressure to keep costs down in the plane on schedule. Aviation subcommittee chairman Rick Larson says misguided priorities have senior management drove a number of troubling decisions. In one case, senior management went as far as selling countdown clocks in conference rooms. Making clear to Matt employees meeting production timelines. Rather than safety was a top priority. The congressional investigation is one of many into what caused the Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines 7 37 Max Plane crashes. Christine Negroni is an aviation journalist and author of the book The Crash detectives, and she says, while much of this information isn't new in the hole, what is to me astonishing about the report? Is the death of the sickness and the deep history off both FAA and Boeing, knowing that there were problems with the redesign of this airliner. And the obliviousness of both parties and recognizing that this was a problem that needed to be addressed. Another thing too grown, he finds remarkable is that a number of people did raise safety concerns about the 7 37 Max, but those were either inadequately addressed or just dismissed by bowing. Many of them never seeing the light of day of the F A. A. And that's an especially painful realization for the families of those who died in the max crashes. It angers us to see how how much going did to cover this up and how much f a A has done. To help them cover it up. Michael Stew, Mo's daughter, 24 year old Samuel arose. Stew Moa was on the plane that crashed last year in Ethiopia. He believes evidence in this report now shows that the first plane crash in Indonesia was preventable but then covering up to keep the max in the air after the lion air crash. So that it crashed again and Ethiopian killed. My daughter was unforgivable. In a statement of Boeing spokesman says the company has learned many hard lessons from the plane crashes and its mistakes. And has made fundamental changes to the company's safety, culture and protocols as a result. How's Transportation Committee is now drafting legislation to improve FAA oversight and certifying planes. Senate Committee is expected to take up its own FAA reform bill later today.

White House asked DOJ to defend Trump in defamation case
"Deal happens frequently. That's the reaction of Attorney General William Bar to criticism over the Justice Department's move to take over the defense of President Trump in a defamation lawsuit. E. Jean Carel, a former columnist for Elle magazine, is suing the president for calling her a liar. She claims that before he was president, Trump sexually assaulted her in a store dressing room. But because the response to the lawsuit occurred while in office, the justices Moment, says the president should be defended as a federal employee, Bar says all the criticism is just politics. This was a normal application of the law. The law is clear. It is done frequently, some legal experts say. While it's common for DOJ to defend federal employees, it's very unusual that the defendant is the president and that the incident in question happened years earlier, a judge has ruled the case can't move forward.

Philadelphia public school teacher worries about 'conservative' parents listening in on virtual classes
"A teacher in Philadelphia that I find not surprising but unexpected that somebody would actually say it out loud. As you know, an awful lot of Americans are facing Ah, fall where their kids do not go back to government run bricks and mortar schools. They will do some on line or distance learning. I don't see the problem with that. In fact, I think having heard from parents who are doing that with their kids right now, and they were doing it even before China virus arrived, it'll actually be a better solution. The problem is the government run public schools populated with union represented teachers. They say. We don't want to do this because they realize that one's parents and students and taxpayers are given a choice. They may decide that the choice of distance learning work so well for their family that their kids never go back. To a bricks and mortar government school. And that's bad news for all those union represented teachers. Well, one teacher, the admission I mentioned a moment ago. This is the one that this teacher in Philadelphia and I have a feeling there's more than one out there Fact I'd love to get a call from one of them. He worries out loud. He tweeted out that he worries the conservative parents are going to listen in on some of the virtual classes. I mean, if your kids are learning at home, they're doing distance education, and you hear a teacher starting to shovel out. Ah lot of political propaganda. That some of the parents might actually object, and I hope they dio this guy Matthew Kay teaches English at the Science Leadership Academy, which is a public school in Philadelphia. Over the weekend, he tweeted out that he's concerned about the damage that parents might cause if they over here, lessons on topics like gender and sexuality and race. The daily wire reports. So far this fall. Virtual class discussions will have many potential Spectators, parents and siblings in the same room. Where will never be quite sure who's over overhearing the discourse? What does that do to our equity and inclusion work? He then described how conservative parents are his chief concern. Listen what he's worried about his teachers. There used to be able to shovel stuff into your kidsheads, and you never find out exactly what it is. You may have one or another child come home and say, Boy, the teacher went on a rant about Donald Trump today or went on a rant about black lives matter or went on a rant about sexuality. And the parent hears it. But there's no way to prove it. What happens when parents can actually hear the lessons? Frankly, I'd be happy if parents were able to hear all of the lessons that their kids are subject to. And if they find a reason to object to it, then, for goodness sake, call the school board called the superintendent and to say You can't do that to my kids. Parents should have the right to do that. And now that

Rep. Matt Gaetz files criminal referral against Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg
"Facebook, and I'll have to admit I have a dog in the fight. In this case, we have a Facebook page. It's a number of years old. It's got quite a number of followers to it. Not as many as the big Hollywood celebrities, but Listen, I'm glad for every single one and we didn't buy one of them some people by their followers. I don't If people want to follow my Facebook page, that's fine. I think we put up good content there. But I do have a beef because Facebook has on occasion either Shut us down and not for anything that was untoward. Many times. They just say we don't know why it shut down. Your site just doesn't work. But there's a reason that conservatives do not trust Facebook. Mark Zuckerberg, I think broke the law when he told Congress that his company is politically neutral. Gateway Pundit Reports of Congress and Matt Gates today filed a criminal referral against Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. And why what crime did he commit? You lied to Congress under oath that is a federal crime gate cited Project Veritas undercover investigation that found two brave whistleblowers. And he sent a letter off to the US Attorney General Bill Bar, his press really said during a hearing of the House Energy and Commerce Committee and a joint hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Senate Commerce Committee. Mr Zuckerberg repeated that's the head of Facebook, Of course, Mark Zuckerberg repeatedly and categorically denied that his company engaged in bias. Against conservative speech, persons policies or politics. He also denied Facebook censored and suppressed content that was supportive of President Donald Trump and other conservatives. In June of 2020 project Veritas published the results of an undercover investigation featuring two whistleblowers who worked his Facebook. Content moderators revealing that the overwhelming majority of content filtered by Facebook's A I artificial intelligence program was content in support of President Donald Trump. So in other words, they were filtering out pro trump content. They also filtered out content related to Republican candidates for office or conservatism in general oversight is an essential part of Congress's constitutional authority. I think that Mark Zuckerberg knows exactly what they're talking about. And if it is the CEO of Facebook, he doesn't know all he needs to do is call in the people in charge of content, moderation and say, Is there a pattern to what we are excluding? And is there a pattern to what we're including if he didn't do that before he went to talk to Congress? Then he did it deliberately. You know, if you know that you're going to talk to Congress and you say, what are they going to ask me about? Well, they're going to ask me about conservative content filtering. Great. I'm going to call in the heads of those various departments and I'm gonna ask him straight out. Are you filtering Mohr Conservative content. If you are, I need to know And if we are, then we need to either justified or Corrected one of the other if he kept himself deliberately ignorant of the facts of things going on inside his own company. That's not an excuse to lie to Congress. And maybe maybe this criminal referral will actually get his attention. By the way, I got this e
Christopher Columbus statues temporarily removed in Chicago
"What's going on right now. In the last couple of hours in Chicago, you've seen the mayor of that city, Lori Lightfoot. Is she concerned about the dozens of people who get shot every weekend in the city? She is removing all the Christopher Columbus statues because she's concerned, she says about public safety. She's removing metal statues instead of removing the criminals who are killing people in her city every weekend. I, You know if she should just resign? I quite frankly, I'm embarrassed, Uh, at her actions. I mean, really their people should she tagged us to public safety Rhonda? She I'm not the one making the connection, she says, seeking to protect public safety. More. Mayor Lori Lightfoot removes Christopher Columbus statues from Chicago Parks until further notice, and then in the same voice. Says. We do not welcome federal law enforcement to come into our city and help us with our crime problem. You think she'd be begging for help? Well as a lawyer. You know what I like to be the next person who gets killed in Chicago to file a file a lawsuit against the city of Chicago and particularly name that that there has to be her wiggle out of her immunity because I've been successful and doing counties and them trying to use their immunity and county Supervisor's try to use their beauty and actually surviving 12 6 motions for that. No, she's publicly said it. She doesn't want federal help. She wants federal police there. So anybody who's harmed in her city. Rhonda. I'm not an attorney. I've just been on the fringes because I'm a reporter. So I've dealt with a lot of attorneys. But I think your idea is great. Even if you didn't win the suit, you get discovery. Imagine a civil lawsuit brought against a big city mayor, whether it's Seattle or Chicago or Portland or l A or whatever and say, OK, I want to see all the internal memoranda. When the police chief tells you mayor this weekend, we're going to Seymour. Dozens of people shot and the mayor's response his well. I'm going to tell the feds they should stay out of the city that's like a company being notified. We've gotta hazard here and the head of the company says Leave it there. If people get hurt too bad, and I think the discovery you know when you demand documents from them would be absolutely amazing. Absolutely. You sound like an attorney, because, yeah, that's what you have the fourth stability issue, and and that put them on notice which takes care of the foreseeability issue. Um, and they should be held accountable and discovery is always your friends and a lot of people who have things to hide. Don't like discovery. But you know to me. It sounds like a conspiracy. I mean, I think you could build, actually. Ah. Conspiracy case that the government is actually intentionally doing things to for a political agenda. That's not idiot. The agenda in the best interest of the people on DH there enduring it conspiracies with other other government enter entities and other

Hollywood's Black List
"Every year, fifty thousand movie scripts Tele plays other pieces of writer Lee stuff get registered with the Writers Guild of America fifty thousand most of which sucks, but a handful of which will become the movies that change our lives today on the show how a math! Loving movie nerd used a spreadsheet and an anonymous hotmail address to solve one of Hollywood's most fundamental problems, picking winners from a sea of garbage, and he may just have reinvented the power structure of Hollywood along the way. Support for this podcast and the following message come from OCTA A leader in identity driven security as the world shifts to a more remote work approach.

A. dot com slash NPR. We're only months away from election day and every week or even every few hours. There's a new twist that could affect who will win the White House to keep up with the latest tune into the NPR. Politics podcast every to find out what happened and what it means for the election. It's two thousand and five Franklin Leonard a junior executive at Leonardo. DiCaprio's production company which sounds glamorous, but arguably he is a glorified script reader. WHO's boss's boss? Is Leonardo DiCaprio. Franklin's job is to help that boss. Find The next great movie for Leo, which means he is constantly reading movie scripts. Every junior executive lives in constant fear of the trade story that breaks about some exciting new script that they didn't know about that. Their bosses like. Like why didn't you know about this? Franklin is supposed to know about everything which is tough because there's this famous old saying in Hollywood. Nobody knows anything as in. It's really hard to know what movies are going to work. So if you do find something any piece of information that can help you gauge. What might work that information? Franklin is learning. That is Hollywood gold one of the things that drilled into your head. Is that information? Information is the most valuable thing. Yeah, and that information is to be protected and kept in house and exploitation of that information is how we in power and leverage like what little information you can manage, and then if it's kind of good, put up a wall as quickly as possible. That's exactly right. Movie scripts are a kind of information like the fundamental piece of information for a movie, and so Franklin's job is go out into the world. World and find undiscovered scripts before anybody else finding those scripts, though amongst the thousands and thousands being written every year it's a bit like walking into like the largest bookstore in the world, and every book has the exact same color. There's no cover art. There's no like publishers weekly. There's no reviews available to you, but your job is to walk into that sort of hyper anonymous bookstore and come out with the best books available That seems impossible. And Franklin says you can see how a problem emerges quickly in Hollywood people deal with this overwhelming amount of information by assuming they should reach for the same shelves of that anonymous bookstores they always do. They assume they should make the same kinds of movies written by the same kinds of people starring the same kinds of people. Yes, we are generally talking about white men people you soon because this has been the case for you thus far that are white writer who went to Dartmouth is better than a black writer who went to? To Clark Atlanta or Spelman, the conventional wisdom that you assume as wisdom is more often than not convention, and that is especially true in Hollywood where the convention has been created by people who are in no way, shape or form representative of the audience and consumer that they are trying to sell to Franklin. decided it was going to be part of his job. Try and find scripts outside of the conventions, well of course, also keeping an eye open for the next conventional blockbuster, which yeah was gonNA mean lots more reading the normal. Look. I've always been bit of a grind. My Competitive Advantage was my capacity to work, and so every weekend I would take home a banker's box full of scripts, but literally twenty five thirty screenplays, and try to read them all every Saturday afternoon. There is Franklin sitting on his couch. It is black sweatpants flipping through page after page after page hoping he's about to read a life changing story imagine if Christmas was every Saturday, but every Saturday. You ran downstairs and opened the box that you're most excited about, and it was socks. Because there is the possibility of getting everything that you ever wanted yeah. But there is the probability that it's. Socks most Saturdays and Sundays go like this Franklin tears into his Christmas scripts seven hours later. Frankland sitting in a pile of socks and the worst thing is when he goes into the office on Monday. His boss says you read anything good. And Franklin has to say no. It was as if he didn't do any work that weekend. Because most scripts are so bad, the Franklin would be in trouble for recommending them, and even if he is lucky enough to find a scripted, he loves he's really got to think about whether. Whether it is the right kind of thing for Leo's company like there was a script going around that year about a guy dealing with his interpersonal trauma by buying and dating a sex doll. It's easy to imagine reading that in saying Oh this is a really well observed human story, but imagine going into your boss's office and saying you should read this and when they ask you what it's about saying. This is what it's about Leonardo DiCaprio. I think you should play this role where you date of a doll like that's. That's a tough sell for the most confident among us. Franklin's breaking point came late one night. Do you remember his? He was in the office. It was dark outside, and he was supposed to go on vacation, and he just kept thinking about how he was inevitably going to end up drowning in bad scripts on vacation, and all of that work would generate nothing of actual value for his job and I remember, looking up and thinking. I. Don't know that this is sustainable and I need to come up with a solution. How is there not a better system for finding good screenplays? If you do the Friends of friends method, you end up with the Friends of friends scripts, and if you try this brute force thing, you're going to ruin your weekends, Andrew Vacation, plus you would need fifty more Franklin's to see all of the script anyway. And that's when it dawns on Franklin. There are more than fifty Franklin's in Hollywood got on. My desktop fired up my calendar and went through and looked at every single person who had a job similar to mine. Who I had had breakfast lunch, dinner or drinks with. If you had eavesdropped on those breakfasts and drinks, Franklin says you would have heard the junior executives ask each other this same question. Have you read anything good lately? Yes, these junior. Our competitors and yes, information is power and companies would probably not be jazzed about them sharing that information, but you know these are low level producers. They're doing each other favors, and it's all off the record anyway. Who is going to know about this and so Franklin figures? Let's see if anyone's read anything good lately. He opens up an email and he BBC's about seventy. Five of his fellow junior exacts, and so know hey. Similar of your ten favorite scripts in exchange I will send you the combined. Responses back. Did you say who you were like? I am a I am a mysterious junior executive. Say anything else, I do not believe that I did. I created an anonymous hotmail address. I believe it was blacklist. Two thousand five at Hotmail DOT com, he called it the blacklist partly to honor the blacklisted writers during the McCarthy era, and partly because he always hated the idea that the word black gets used to mean bad, so this blacklist was going to mean great screenplays. People would respond, but surprisingly responses started coming back. Maybe these other junior executives felt as stuck as Franklin. Maybe it was just this information bargain was was a good deal. I sure transcripts I get a whole list back there around ninety responses and every time somebody mentioned the same script Franklin treated that like a vote for that script, and he starts logging all of this into spreadsheet. Twenty five people voted for things. We lost in the fire by Allan Loeb Twenty. Four people mentioned Juno by cody. Fifteen votes Larson the real girl by Nancy Oliver Fourteen votes, Lars and the real girl that is the script about the guy and the sex. If, you were a junior executive. Thinking this is good, but is this good? I'm not important enough to risk bringing this to my boss. The blacklist was a way of saying you were right. It was good and here is a number. Instead of just your instincts fourteen votes, only living boy in New, York, by Allan, Loeb Charlie Wilson's war by earned Sorkin, Fan Burke and by the way a big deal in two thousand five. This wasn't just about finding undiscovered writers. It was any script that was great and not made. In a script called peacock by riders named Michael Lender and Ryan Roy the top ten of the very first blacklist thubten of the very first blacklist. Point the blacklist was just a spreadsheet that only Franklin could see, and he's about to send it back to all those other junior executives who contributed and he looks at it for a moment all of this normally off the record insider Hollywood Intel now written in a single place. He takes a deep breath. And he hit send. And then he packs up and heads off for vacation in Mexico and about a weekend vacation I went to the hotel of business center to check my email on like the public computer. And this lists have been forwarded back to me several dozen times. and everyone's like Oh my word of this team. Come from a lot of descriptions of sister. Good. Where where did this come from? What's your? What's your thought? It was terrifying. My thought is is that my career in Hollywood has a clock on it and the doomsday clock has just sped up. This anonymous list of the best unmade screenplays was blowing up. It had gone way beyond the small circle. It was initially sent to it even ended up covered the industry press, and so Franklin kept his down. He stayed anonymous and one day. He gets this call from an agent. Saying that his client has written this amazing script. It's perfect for Leo. It's like the usual call, except then the agent says hey. Don't tell anybody, but I have it on good authority that this ripped is going to be the number one script on next year's blacklist. I immediately thought to myself. That's interesting because I made the blacklist and I'm not making another one because I. DON'T WANNA get run out of town on rails. But I'm fascinated that you think that the speculative notion of your client scripting on the list is a sales tool for you. That must mean that this list that I created has
International students may need to leave US if their universities transition to online-only learning
"And it's universities, especially the public universities have, I think kind of a strange relationship of the rest of the world are universities air sought out by international students from around the world who want to come here to the United States? And they want to study? We understand that we understand those universities love those international students to because they tend to pay the greatest amount of tuition. This is even if they're a taxpayer funded taxpayer owned. University. But now that many of those universities are in a position where they're having to do online education of the students, is there any good reason for the student? I have to live in the United States and be granted a visa to do that? Dan Griswald joins me now who's the Mercatus Center's director of trade and immigration, Dan? Welcome back to the program. So the president has issued. Sorry about that. Go ahead. I'm glad to be with you was. I'm glad to have you with me. So this directive from the Trump administration that would take away international college student visas. If they're coursework is entirely online. Anything unreasonable about that? I think it is unreasonable and it's unnecessary one. It's very short notice. You know, just a few weeks before the fall semester starts. If they are going online for all classes, maybe not necessarily do that all semester. There are still reasons to want to stay on campus. You can meet with other students. You Khun do extracurricular things. They have labs and things like that. So It's just totally on unnecessary large and it's going to hurt the U. S economy In the short run. As you mentioned, it's going to deprive us of billions of dollars of tuition payments, potentially It's going to hurt us in the larger run by discouraging these students from coming here, and many of them go on to feel important jobs here found important companies and boost our economy. Okay, I'm a little bit of two minds about this. So, Dan, I'll admit to being a bit ambivalent about this because on one hand, I hear, but these students come here and many times they stay here, inform companies here and they start businesses and they employ people. Those are all good things. I'd like to see American citizen students do that. And there are times when I look at Universities, even in my own neck of the woods, and I think they're pursuing the international students more than they're pursuing the students in the in their own state. In other words, the state that owns the operation owns the The University provides taxpayer funding for it so that it benefits foreign students and if they end up going home, and I'm thinking, in particular about China or China says sends its students here. They learn a lot of things, and then they go home. Or they perhaps worked for a a big tech company here and then take all that that that knowledge and information and capability back to their home country and they compete against the United States. Well, I think that can happen. But there's no trade off us. Students and foreign students can prosper together. And in fact, US students are better off if we have foreign students here and then work beside them and start those companies and create those patents, But you know most of the, but let's look at doctoral students in the stem subjects, right science technology engineering. Mathematics, 72% of them. The doctoral students will stay here for 10 years or more. That percentage is even higher among Indian and Chinese students, so some of the Chinese students to go back Most of them stay here and you mentioned cos you know, cos like zoom Tesla's space six Instagram. Those were all founded by foreigners who came here as student and stayed here and found that those companies Which were a great benefit to consumers, and also have created a lot of wealth and jobs for Americans. We're going to have less of that activity because of this action by the administration. If those universities were forced had on ly or primarily depend on domestic students, students who are you know the sons and daughters of American citizens or American Green card holders. Would that necessarily mean that those companies would not be created by those students instead of instead of foreign students? Well, US entrepreneurs do found those companies. But no, I think we have fewer of those companies founded. You know, we favor native born students right? They get the in state tuition. They have plenty of opportunities to go to college. No American student is being crowded out by, for instance, In fact, the fact that the foreign students pay full freight. On their tuition means that the colleges can offer lower tuition native born American students and helping them get an education and have better paying jobs for their careers. Okay, because I don't want to sound jingoistic. But I'm also aware I've seen universities and say, We've had to put a cap on this before China virus, But we've had to put a cap on the number of students and I say, Well, hold on. You're still taking lots of international students. And they say, Well, that's because we're getting 30 or $40,000 a year from them. We're only getting 10,000 year from the students in ST And again, they seem to be more interested in those $30,000 payments than they do, making more room for American students. I think that could be true at some schools. Most universities are seeing declining in moments, or at least they're having to hunt harder and harder for this. There's plenty of opportunities for Americans. American students and the foreign students actually create more opportunities because they helped keep the tuition down so it could be more affordable for American students.

S. national interest consistent with the faithful execution of his oath of office and consistent with official US policy but on July twenty five when president trump call the president of Ukraine president drop drop did the opposite instead of following official US talking points instead of listening to his staff on what was important to our national interests president trump S. Ukraine for something that but if it only himself his political investigations and not only did these investigations diverge from US national interests as you'll hear president trump's actions harm to our national security imported himself above our country for our country at risk and that is why his actions are so dangerous now let's take a moment and look carefully at the two investigations that president trump sought from Ukraine course are at the heart of the president's scheme and I was stood to benefit politically from Ukraine's announcement of each as you can see on the slide the first investigation was of course a former vice president Biden let's go straight to the July twenty five telephone call again for president trump stated clearly each of these investigations he wanted so let's start with vice president Joe Biden it is and the removal of carafe prosecutors in a frame the first indication investigation related to former vice president Joe Biden and a crazy and gas company Burris my holdings on whose board his son hunter Biden used to sit president trump himself summarize the theory behind his request in broad strokes it is July twenty five call with president so let's get here's what he said the other thing there's a lot of talk about buying some goodbye and stop the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so that whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great hi everyone around bragging that they stop the prosecution so if you can look into that it sounds horrible to me now let's look carefully at the investigation president trump was asking for and what it was based on it short president trump ask for the investigation into by based on the make up theory that no one agreed with no one we'll go into it this in more detail but at a high level the allegation is that late in twenty sixteen Biden fresher Ukraine to remove his van prosecutor general Victor show can by threatening to withhold approximately one billion in loan guarantees if he was not removed according to this theory vice president Biden did this in order to help his son in a company called Burris mine for rice president Biden's son sat on the board at the Richmond that's a very goes vice president Biden tried to remove Ukraine's prosecutor all to make sure the prosecutor wouldn't investigate actress that specific company race one because again his son was on the board for Dan centers if that doesn't sound far fetched and complicated to you it should so let's take this by step and start from the beginning in twenty fourteen vice president Biden's son hunter join the board of the Ukrainian national gas for race my holdings at the time where is miss owner a Ukrainian old guard and former government minister was under investigation in twenty fifteen Victor show can became Ukraine's prosecutor general a job similar your Attorney General and United States although Shokan Broward to keep investigating Burris mother a minute and international push to root out corruption in Ukraine yeah allow difference my destination to go dormant allowed it to go dormant that is when he was removed he was not actively investigating Borisova yet let it go dormant moreover Shokan was widely perceived as ineffective and corrupt George can't the second most senior official at the US embassy and cave at the time describe show good as quote a typical Ukraine prosecutor for live the lifestyle far in excess of his government salary who never prosecuted anybody known for having committed a crime and covered up crimes that were known to have been committed in late twenty fifteen vice president Biden who it is shown a significant role in US policy toward you crave publicly called for the removal of Mr Shokan because of his failure his failure to adequately combat corruption vice president Biden wasn't alone the European Union our European allies the International Monetary Fund reformers inside Ukraine also wanted Mister show can remove to reform the Ukrainian prosecutor general's office to reform it reforming the prosecutor general's office was also supported on a bipartisan basis by the Ukrainian caucus here in the Senate on February twelfth twenty sixteen after vice president Biden had urged for the removal of Mr show can but before the region and were you crying in parliament voted to remove him a bipartisan group of senators including senators Portman Darband shaking Ron Johnson Murphree Kirk lumen falling short brown send a letter to president Poroshenko that urged him to make urgent reforms to the prosecutor general's office a month after the senator sent that letter Mr Shokan was fired he was fired so let's be very very clear vice president Biden call for the removal of this prosecutor at the official direction of US policy because a prosecutor was widely perceived as corrupt and with the support of all our international allies his actions were there for supported by the executive branch Congress and the international community for common sense would tell us that this allegation against Joe Biden is false and that there was no legitimate basis for any investigation there are several other reasons you know that the only reason president trump one eight Ukraine to announce the investigation into Biden that was also solely for this very own personal benefit if you

"Larson. Welcome back to LARs Larson show pleasure to be with you on a first amendment Friday night tonight live from the Reagan Presidential library down here to attend attended dinner tonight of the national right to work legal foundation. And I've been getting my share phone calls about unions. Just you all understand. I've had some bad experiences with unions throughout my life. I didn't ask for him. They were forced on me. I'd get a job at show up. They'd say you're going to be joining the union, and I'd say what if I don't want to what if I want to make a choice about whether or not I joined the union, and they say, no, you don't have that choice. You have to join or you will be fired. And that is the rule in twenty three states twenty-seven states have right to work where if you go to work in a union shop, and you say I'd like to join the union or I don't want to join the union twenty-seven states. The majority of American states represent actually reflect your right to make that choice and the case of. Made while I'm not thrilled. With unions. The case I've always made for the unions being forced to work for your membership. Is that if you're in a state where they say you have to join you don't have any choice that union does not have to work very hard for you at all on the other hand, if the union has to work for you to join because you're in a right to work state, and it's up to you to decide whether you want to or not then they're gonna come to you. And they're going to say, we're going to do all kinds of things for you. Look at all the wonderful things we do for you. In other words, they have to sell you on the idea the same way any other group, and I use the NRA because it's handy. But there are meme there are groups that I'm a member of. And if I find some day that I say, this really isn't doing much for me right now, I'm paying these guys a certain amount of money every year, they send me a lot of advertising, but it really doesn't do something for me. I quit my membership in that group if the group wants to keep me as a member. They have to convince me that what they're doing. For me is worth the dollars that I pay to them that's a healthy relationship. Most of us have those kind of relationships with all kinds of people.

"Larson. Welcome back to the LARs Larson show a first amendment Friday. It's my favorite day of the week because we open up the phone lines and anybody who wants to send off concert do that. I've got a few things that I want to sound off on. Of course, we have the most reason development in the last couple of hours, the news that Jesse Smolen who faked to that hate crime turned out not to be a hate crime at all. But simply a guy who wanted a better paycheck and was willing to defame and disparage all the supporters of President Donald Trump to get it done. He got caught. And now he is facing sixteen felony charges. My prediction would be that his lawyers will go to work and try to figure out a way for him to play out on this one. But as far as I'm concerned, I hope Chicago throws the book at him for what he did faking a hate crime making it sound as though two masked men who came up shouting Maga slogans make America, great again slogans. So he identified them as Trump supporters. Had shouted anti black anti gay things at him had thrown bleach on him had put a noose around his neck and head otherwise abused him than it turned out that he had actually hired two of the fellow actors or other people from the staff of the television show is on because he was frustrated by the size of its paycheck. And I want to keep reminding people just see smell at was making one point eight million dollars a year. Let me translate that a hundred and fifty thousand dollars a month. Let's try it. Again, how about forty thousand dollars a week, and he wasn't happy with his paycheck. And he thought if you could only bring some sympathy to himself that he might actually get a bigger paycheck. That's a pretty craven kind of approach to life, isn't it? Anyway, if you want to jump into the conversation and talk journalism, it's right here every night. And all you have to do is dial in eight six six, hey, LARs, that's eight six six four three nine five to seven seven emails. Go to talk. At LARs Larson dot com our Twitter poll, and there's a brand new question. Every night has the democrat party become the anti Jewish party. That is the assessment of the president Donald J Trump who has a Jewish daughter and a Jewish son-in-law, Jared, Kushner, and avant could Trump he says, the Democrats are an anti Jewish party because of the vote that was taken by Democrats in the anti-hate resolution in which they thought to try to address the behavior of Ilhan, Omar. But they didn't want to call out by name even though everybody in the country understands the resolution was all about her. And maybe to some extent a Representative from Michigan who's been saying some similar things..

"Larson show. Glad to be with you and glad to take your phone calls and emails I'll get to those a bit later and naysayers always go to the head of the line. But when you take a look at our current congress or even a congress of four or five years ago, I wouldn't exactly call it seller. In fact, the two years before the Democrats took over you'd think I'd have really enjoyed the congress and its performance in the first two years of the trumps of the Trump presidency. No, I don't think they got much done. In fact, I think they worked their darndest to make sure they didn't get anything much done other than that great tax cut. That was good. And and a couple of other smaller things, but the big stuff Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell just couldn't be bothered. So I thought I talked to Clint Brown whose legal policy director at the Pacific legal foundation about what it would take to make our congress more functional, and if they can't be made functional Clint, we find a way to do away with them altogether. Welcome back, by the way. Thanks so much for having me on LARs, that's not a bad idea. So I wrote this up add to point out that this isn't the first shutdown and won't be the last until congress reclaimed their power over the unelected bureaucrats running the show. I I'd agree with you in fact, now they're trying to talk about how to make sure that funding goes on even when congress doesn't appropriate the money that sounds like a complete abdication of their responsibility, doesn't the constitution say that money. Can't be spent not one thin dime. A less the congress appropriates the money, and yet you've got folks from the left side of the aisle out there right now pushing a Bill to say we want to make sure that even when the congress doesn't act all the government agencies. Still get funded all those unelected unanswerable bureaucrats who have lifetime sinecures when federal employment get to keep their agencies funded even when the people's representatives haven't signed off on it. That ought to be one of those outrageous. Ideas anybody's ever heard of. I think it's pretty outrageous that takes away any incentive to negotiate on funding. And you know, the funding is only half of the problem. Congress is supposed to go through two steps before they do anything. So when congress wants to start a new program they're supposed to I half an authorizing Bill legal authority for that program. And then they fund separate piece of legislation an appropriations Bill, and that's what the shutdown. It's been about. The periodically. There's supposed to read you both. They're supposed to go back and reauthorize give legal authority for that program and redo the funding. So every year they try to redo the funding, but they have failed to redo the authority for programs Congressional Budget Office Congress's account found that there are four four hundred and ten. Expired authorizations the congress has continued to fund without even taking a second. Look is that constitutional. You know, I think it is constitutional that that could certainly be debated. I I mean, I guess I'm just asking, you know, Clinton, I'm not a lawyer. But if you say authorization of the program itself is required. So just so we know what to think for my audience, and for me to give me an example of one of the ah programs that has not been given the who's authorization has expired, but who's funding has continued. Is there one that comes to mind? Sure, the first one that comes to mind is the Federal Election Commission super important agency. You know, we we want our elections be honest. That's the bedrock of our Republic. Agreed. Haven't been reauthorized since nineteen eighty one has not said is there anything we need to do update. The FCC. Is there anything we need to need to do to reevaluate? It are there their waste at the FCC. They haven't taken even second Glenn since nineteen Eighty-one. It's outrageous. I wonder you know, I've got a thought it seems almost every political campaign ends up paying some FCC fines for one transgression or another. Some are serious. Some are not. But can you imagine if somebody had ever been fined by the FCC and took it to court on the theory that the agency doesn't have any any reason to exist? It has no authority to exist and contest the fine. Maybe even go out and deliberately in current FC FCC find failed to file the paperwork on a fifty dollars donation. And when they find you. You know, some minor amount of money say all right? We're going to go to court, and the court is gonna decide if the FCC even exists if it hasn't been reauthorized and tested that way it that's what it would take to get standing. I would think and and you could actually test it, and frankly, I wish they'd pass bills for programs that have a sunset in them saying, you know, after five or ten or fifteen years, whatever you decide to the appropriate time this agency goes out of existence unless you get a majority in both houses and the president's signature to sign off on it and take it around the other way say you are going to go out of existence unless we decide you need to stay in existence. What do you think of that? Bars. You know, that's actually a great idea. And what's funny is that's what they did these programs have a sunset provision, and yet congress continues to allow them to exist. They have that kind of sunset Parisian, and I guess the legal theory on it is that it congress gives money to congress must approve of that they must be saying. Okay. Now, you have the authority, but they're skipping half the process, they're not actually looking behind the curtain dang. Okay. What are you guys doing? You deserve this money. Are you are you wasteful? They're not examining this at all. That puts a lot of pressure on the federal budget. Actually, I wanted to tell your listeners that puts three hundred eighteen billion dollars worth of pressure on the federal budget because that's how much money they're spending that they haven't even taken a second look at these four hundred and ten programs cost three hundred eighteen billion with a B dollars. Okay. And and if I treat that the way everything else in DC is treated and extended over ten. Ten years that means we could save three trillion dollars. But just having all those agencies snap out of existence and say, you don't exist anymore. We're not giving any money because you're not authorized to exist. So therefore, and then if we decide there's one or two of them that we actually wanted to save 'cause they serve some some decent purpose. We say we're going to say that one and that one over there, and you actually force congress, frankly, if the congress has a constitutionally assigned responsibility, not just a thorny, but responsibility for oversight, and they failed to do oversight on these than the congress is in violation of the constitution. Are they not? Congress. They they love to violate account. They they don't take it into account any day of the week. I want you to see do you think, you know, a lawyer who would be willing to bring a case I've got because I'm willing to bet even if we don't have a current violator of the FCC and once you've tested it on them. Just see if the court will extend it to every other agency or or do we have to test them one by one? You know, speaking of lawyers the Pacific legal foundation where we're a law firm. I recently joined the Pacific condition, actually, I've been in congress as a senior advisor to senators for the last five years, and then I heard that. Pacific legal foundation was interested in shedding light on this issue until I immediately jumped on I mean, neither smart lawyers. They have a ton of wins in the core.

"Peers LARs Larson. Welcome back to the LARs Larson show. Brad Kavanagh almost lost his job on the supreme court over an accusation from his childhood should CNN fire. A reporter who made some hateful remarks that many of us would disparage or disagree with but you can verified from just a few years ago or CNN right to defend advice, and all those isn't crazy things. She said in college and employment website is being accused of gender discrimination is prejudice. Or is that just marketing? Our tech expert will join us to talk about that. And the Trump administration has been accused of deporting nothing, but Mexicans but a reality star from Italy recently found out that is not the case. And by the way, take a moment to cast a vote. My Twitter poll at LARs Larson dot com. And at LARs Larson show, our Twitter poll question tonight, should social media platforms be held responsible. If people use those platforms to fund terrorism, we're talking about a specific case identified. By memory, which is the Middle Eastern media research institute points out that telegram, and what's up are being used to collect money to supply fighters in Syria with military hardware drones and that sort of thing as well as weapons food and clothing for fighters and for their families. I understand that those groups may go out and try and raise that money in federal law. It's described as the crime of providing material support to terrorism, and it can be as broad as simply sending first aid kits to terrorists. You're not allowed to do any of that, nor are you allowed as an American citizen to contribute any money to groups that do that. I think the social media platforms at choose to publish that should be held responsible. Now in yesterday's Twitter poll, I asked you this should people falsely accused of sexual assault be reimbursed for legal fees involved to college students, male and female who had been consensually involved at each other. And then the young lady. Decided that she regretted that involvement and she accused the young man of sexual assault. He was finally cleared of the charge. But it cost him twelve thousand dollars. Should he do the university or the young lady who made the false accusation pay the Bill I said, yes, they should be reimbursed for those fees. So did ninety three percent of you only seven percent of you said, no NAR Twitter poll can be found in voted.
