Do not need to wear masks indoors or outdoors. Something has changed. And what has changed. Is the virus. The cdc hasn't changed. The cdc has really flip flopped. At all. what's happened. Is that when that earlier recommendation was made we were dealing predominantly with the alpha variant and the alpha verion when you look at individuals who are vaccinated that the level of virus in the nays of barons of vaccinating people might get a breakthrough infection that the level of virus was really very low indicating that it would be extremely unlikely that a vaccinated person who happened to get infected and that happens because the vaccine is certainly not one hundred percent effective. That would be very unlikely that they would transmit however now you're dealing with delta very which is really quite a lot more transmissible. Can you make sense out of that. You make sense out of any of that these. She hasn't flip flopped at all. He said we were dealing with the alpha variant. But now that we're with the delta variant the viruses. And i know that most americans right left or in between are accepting a word of that.

"Now, Joy Reid. Is a hate America reprobate. That's why she's on MSNBC. That has to be in your resume. She's also a bigot. Said horrific things about homosexuals. Years ago and then blamed hackers for putting it on her social media site, So she's also a serial liar. Nobody could ever find the hackers. Just Just another host over there at M. S. L S D. She brings a woman on by the name of Kimberly Crenshaw. You're going to learn about Kimberly Crenshaw in American Marxism. She did not come up with the idea of critical race theory. She came up with the idea of Intersectionality, which takes it a step further. As an example. If you're black. And you're a lesbian. And you're Muslim. There you have three areas of victimhood. Three areas in which you are oppressed by the white dominant straight Christian male society. So there's intersectionality with your race with your With your sexuality. And with your faith. So that's the trifecta. And so they do this and it doesn't just have to be physical features or Religion. It could be So called environmental issues and so forth. And this is the way of networking all this disparate groups all these movements that have been spawned by Marxism. And pulling them together. So they have a common enemy. The existing society.

The Radical Left Change Their Messaging to Hide Their Lies
"So they hate him. Believe me. They're not going to change that. They're not changing their message. No matter what. So what do they do? Change the messaging. Don't change the message. Don't say back to blue. Just change the defund the police message to re funding the people. What Jim Queue up. Cut five for me. This is MSNBC contributor. Uh, Britney Pack Nick Cunningham. Who understands pretty quickly. She's not stupid, very clever marketing that defund the police is a loser message. So listen about halfway to she flips the script, and now it's all about refunding. The people check this out. Defunding. The police is not just about taking money out of an institution that continues to prove and affected. It's also about re funding the people. It's about ensuring that the services that people need to ensure safe communities from the ground up are actually being funded. And resource to their full capacity. I think that there are a lot of police unions and GOP operatives that would like for us to believe that this recent crime wave has everything to do with this idea of defunding the police. But guess what? Stephanie? The police haven't been defunded. You actually look at the 50 largest cities, law enforcement spending as a share of the general expenditure in each of those cities actually rose slightly from 13.6% to 13.7% and many of the cities that have Talked about removing that money like Minneapolis and Seattle. They've actually paused or slowed how they were thinking about moving that money. So this rising crime is not. The fault of the movement is actually the fault of the police. And this has been our point all along. So this is I mean, Listen, folks, you Don't hate the player hate the game, right? You almost have to respect the level of lying that went on there. You're like, Wow, that is some That's some black
The New York Times, Washington Post, and Leftist Media Need Accountability Groups for Their Racist and Bigoted History
"As they do not condemn Marxism. They condemn Americans. Do they disagree with Americans who voted for Donald Trump Americans who are registered Republicans, but not rhinos and bend over backwards and apologize for their existence. The New York Times is a dollop diabolical propaganda machine run by demagogues, as is the The Washington Post. It is they who foment hate. It is they who foment violence. It is they who lie about history. It is they who lie about events. Not I not conservative talk radio, not Fox News. It's them. And their progeny, CNN and MSNBC. And the left wing hordes. All wish to work for The New York Times and the Washington Post, Because, Wow, now I've made it. You made it. What These are corporations. These are corporations that I would argue, sided with the enemy. By covering up with the enemy was doing and even worse. Propagandizing and spinning for the enemy. In the midst of World War two. I think the New York Times needs an accountability group, don't you Mr Producer? I think The Washington Post needs an accountability group. I think the Democrat Party needs accountability groups all across this country. Where Democrats were readers and employees of the Washington Post and The New York Times can all sit around. And unravel their history. They're bigoted, racist, anti Semitic, anti American history.

The Imbalance of Justice When Pursuing Antifa, BLM Rioters
"Course not. We love producer Jim. That's a funny one. It was not funny, though. The complete evaporation of justice in our country what we've been talking about since the beginning. How do you explain the fact that we have to terrorist groups, right? Antifa and black lives matter that engaged in the exact same tactics. Terrorists engage in violence, property destruction, political intimidation. We saw that we saw it with our own eyes. Our eyes weren't lying to us. You saw it on TV.

Police Say Nearly 250 Arrested in Minnesota Pipeline Protest
"People turned out in pretty large numbers in northern minnesota this week. More than a thousand people there to protest the construction of a new multi-billion dollar oil pipeline a pipeline that among other things would cross through the delicate headwaters of the mississippi river. The protesters are trying to block that new pipeline and all the environmental hazards that it brings with it. A separate group of protesters made their way into one of the new pipelines pump stations. That's currently under construction. They piled a whole bunch of stuff including a vote at the entrance way so nobody could get in or out. The demonstrators then started locking themselves to the construction equipment bodily at at that site that had the effect of shutting down all work on on the pipeline for the day. Eventually police showed up. They started dragging protesters through the dirt to arrest them. About two hundred. People were arrested just at the pump station but the response by law enforcement wasn't just a local one in terms of local minnesota police officers. Look at this. This is a helicopter belonging to the federal government. Us customs and border patrol cv. Pista flew this helicopter. Really low dangerously low over this pipeline protest using the rotor wash from the chopper to blow dirt and debris all over the place apparently to try to get those protesters to leave see. Bp now says they are investigating the use of that helicopter. You're not supposed to use a government helicopter like that even if it is against protestors especially if it's against protestors this pipeline which is called line three it's pipeline by a company called bridge it was approved greenland under president trump. The protesters are pushing for president biden to suspend the permit for the pipeline before construction on it finished about two hundred. Protesters are camped. Out along the pipeline. Saying we won't stop pushing. They're not saying they won't leave

Weird How liberals live in these cities and they go and burn your cities down and you're like, Oh, this is great. They're peaceful protest as your city's burning down behind you kind of strange, right? I'm sure you remember. They've called Trump a coward because the secret Service took him into the bunker. Remember that they said, Oh my God! She was overreacting. President Trump. He was a chump, not a trump. What a coward into the bunker. That's weird because the Biden administration now is defending that decision. Defending the decision to expand the perimeter around the White House. I thought there was no threat. I thought they were peaceful Protesters didn't MSNBC. Your CNN imply that Don't worry, folks. These air, largely peaceful protest. I'm sorry. I just got punched in the face a largely another.

"Thank you for being part of this conversation tonight. What what happened this weekend. In el paso american gun violence in general is an international story some of the international response to what happened this weekend will surprise surprise you. We've got a live report on that specific international reaction coming up next stay with us the grief and outrage from the attack in el paso and the attack dayton and the attacking gilroy they all reach far beyond the borders but of the el paso attack the twenty twenty. Two people killed in el paso on saturday. We're now learning from forties. Seven of those twenty two people killed were mexican nationals and that that means the government of mexico is now responding on behalf of their own citizens and they're responding with anger for more. Let's go to n._b._c. News correspondent cal perry who's in tapachula mexico account rachel. We saw headlines here that were similar to those around the world with one slight difference. The words of the gunman were splashed lashed all over the front pages hispanic invasion killing of mexicans and that led to this extraordinary press conference yesterday from the foreign minister who talked about american erkin gun violence he talked about hate speech but he went a step further saying that mexico may take legal action and try to extradite the gunman here to mexico now look. That's not very realistic but it points to what you are saying that the government is going out of. Its way doing something extraordinary to show its citizens that it will protect. Put this in the larger context last month. Donald trump threatened in this country with tariffs and so just a few miles from where i'm standing at the guatemalan border you now have eleven thousand national guardsmen standing on the mexican side of the border turning people around. Some people say that's doing the american bidding for them. Some people support it but it shows you. This tenuous position that the mexican government is in everybody here views views the u._s. as a country with a gun fetish. That is the words that people use here. The difference is and we talked to a kid twenty six years old just a few minutes ago. He got deported from the u._s. A few months ago he left his family behind in los angeles. He said he would do anything to get back there but in talking to his mom earlier today he said that the fear is now that that people will be targeted that is what has changed not the gun violence but the rhetoric that we saw from that gunman in the essay that is what people here are talking about rachel calipari reporting from southeastern mexico cal..

"Extraordinary obsession with every bleat that he admits and when you do this some people out there are listening and what they're listening for is to hear permission to say certain things and saying things turn words into deeds eventually the president is after all on entertainer we tend and lose sight of that fact and the entertainer feeds off his audience. Today he was feeding off a teleprompter and so he was relatively sedated but when he gets back in from an in front of his next audience it will be very interesting to see because the audience itself will not have reformed we know who is attracted to those auditoriums and those parks where he speaks and they will give him the incentive to revert to type so we're going to see how long this lasts with the president george. I was not surprised to hear radio silence silence from republicans on guns. It's the sound of silence. We've heard for almost a generation from republicans on guns. I am surprised that no republicans are speaking out about domestic terrorism <music>. I'm old enough to remember when republicans were pretty alarmed by anything with the t for terrorism word in it. I think that in fact a lot of the fear and anxiety about the national rifle association has limits. It's blitz to to say that there are limits to this but there are and in fact the n._r._a. Right right now is convulsed by a lot of internal problems in his losing some membership and all the rest but if republicans will actually read the two thousand and eight supreme name court decision and the heller case striking down a district of columbia severe law that actually said you could only have a handgun for personal <hes> defense if it was dismantled unlocked up and therefore was no good for personal defense there is nothing in the heller decision rightly insensivity red which i think the supreme court would do that would prevent the supreme court from affirming <hes> laws that would for example restrict certainly drums uh-huh that are equipped weapon to fire one hundred bullets and <hes> less than one hundred seconds or automatic rifles of the sort that we're talking about the excuse that the supreme court has spoken unsettled all this is no excuse at all and any you know you speak from the heart you get to the deep roots of everything we're dealing with but but but what is the prospect for change with half the country either reading george will said the the heller decision on guns or staying silent in the face of white extremism domestic terror. How far can we get half the country walking around like donbass. I mean it's a difficult question to answer. I think what we have to do is to get about the business of building a better world not so much focusing thing our energy and attention and trying to convince people to hold different sorts of commitments but to build a better world where they have to choose so it seems to me for example. I'm from mississippi right when when jim crow mississippi when when the jim crow south ended those who had been born in rear to be a certain kind of racist had to stop they couldn't walk around calling people the n. word in in public. They couldn't call people boy. They couldn't call my dad or my grandfather uncle. They had to change changed the way they live that doesn't mean that the society fundamentally changed in some ways but the we which they went about living their lives that world died and something else came came into being carrying the disease with but something else came into being we need to spend our time and energy not so much trying to convince folk folk because those folks have the country by the throat and they've had the country by the throat since the founding. It's time for us to build a better world world and say choose it or go your way unbelievable jordan eddie..

They have yet to get over all right. Thank you so much. I appreciate it. I i wish rachel nicole. I wish you could hear the conversation conversation. We've been having for the last two hours here because it's been fascinating. We've made a lot of connections. I would actually urge all communities to do this. Get together with some people. You don't know and consider a room because it's been illuminating. I'll send it back to you case our remarkable conversation and even an hour of incredible tragedy stories of wisdom and resilience. Thank you so much for spending some time with us. We have much more ahead as we bring you our two of our special coverage on domestic terrorism stay with us one count the shootings this weekend in el paso texas dayton ohio where the twenty first and twenty we second mass killings of twenty nine thousand nine hundred in this country. That's according to a database that tracks homicides were more than four four or more four people are killed not including the shooter but if you count all incidents in which multiple people were shot some counts as many as two hundred and fifty five mass shooting shooting so far this year just in this one country the sheer number of mass shootings in america means that we now have americans who i'll have experienced more than one themselves and i mean that literally not just statistically three of the survivors of last weekend's shooting in gilroy california were also themselves survivors of the 2017 mass shooting in las vegas. The three of them had actually met in a facebook support group for survivors of the las vegas massacre. They then attended the gilroy festival together. Were they survived yet. Another mass shooting joining us now from in gilroy california's m._s._n._b._c. correspondent jacob sober off jacob. Thanks very much for being here. It's good to have you here. My friend thank rachel. I know you spoke today jacob with a survivor of the garlic festival shooting in gilroy which left three people dead thirteen people injured. Let me just ask you. How's that survivor doing. How has it affected that person to to learn of the el paso dayton massacre so soon on the hills of what they just went through well. She's i spoke with a woman who was here selling honey <hes> at the garlic look festival and she just came from the hospital where she was with her colleagues and literally today still the wounds are still fresh from the mass shooting that happened here. We're just eight days ago six days before what happened in el paso and that's that's part of the reason that we wanted to be here tonight. There are other media outlets are cameras out here tonight but we felt like it was important to be here because we cannot view these events in isolation from one another. I think <hes> so so many nemo including folks in our business to do that. These are isolated incidents that we move on but this event is important to remind everybody that the shooter in this event was also a young man who before he came and murdered three innocent people including a six-year-old boy a posted about a racist manifesto and then came here and committed did those murders and so you know we want to talk about how to view these events in totality not just as isolated incidents that happen as one us because because they certainly aren't. You can't look at them separate from each other. You can't look at them. Separate from the language of the president and you can't look at them separate from the political system that we live in where as you said earlier in the program the n._r._a. <hes> contributed thirty million dollars to the election of president trump and he calls a member of the n._r._a. Good patriotic roddick americans and immigrants rapists criminals and all the other names that we've discussed this evening jacob on that point about the potential motivation of the gilroy shooter. I am mm struck very much by the fact that he posted something online..

Thank you so much for making time to be with us. I know this is a very very difficult time.

We're trying to do the best that we can to support the victims the victims families we've set up a fund to the dayton foundation and we're just doing everything we can to support them as we all try to get through this squirrel event together. There have been obviously there's dane is a point of national focus because of what happened there but also because of it coming so closely on on the heels of what happened in el paso <hes> unlike in el paso there hasn't been as much of a focus because there hasn't been as much detail to report from in terms of a potential motive for the shooter or what might have led him to do these things. What can you tell us about. The heart of dayton was attacked the bar. That was the focus of the attack. If there seems to be any pattern any method that you can source in the madness in terms of us understanding what happened here and who was targeted yeah well the investigation very thorough investigation on behalf of our dame. Police department is ongoing so we really don't have a lot of details on that. The district that we're in the oregon district is a very vital community. Most of the folks that own businesses here are our local owners as so. It's very close knit group. There's neighborhoods behind this where we're books live and it's just again a very tight knit community and it's affected our entire city and in fact the reason it's just a very devastating thing.

"The anti-defamation league and kristen piccinini former white supremacists now activists and author of white american youth joining us from el paso richard parker author of lonestar nation his new op-ed new york times this titled when hate came to el paso we'll start with you you just jump into this conversation about the intersection of rhetoric about the the the intersection of of the president's language the language in his twitter feed and the manipulation and the use of this language of an invasion is reported in the new york times tonight as part of his reelection strategy well i. I don't think you have to be some kind of scientists to draw a straight line between the president's rhetoric as obtained immigrations and the sixty million people in this country who are latinos the vast majority of them are citizens and what happened here in el paso which is my hometown on saturday. The president has used the word invasion at least sixty times in his personal rhetoric as the times has pointed out tonight. His campaign is running two thousand facebook ads with the exact same <hes> messaging and frankly i read the shooter's manifesto on saturday in the wake of the the the horror that took place right across the street here uh-huh frankly it could have been by the white house press shop. It was no different wow eddie well. Yes it's absolutely clear to me to to see a relationship between donald trump's rhetoric and what we just experienced but we just saw but i think it's important for us to ask ourselves the question why do why does he want. Do his people believe it's effective yeah right so it's one thing for us to kind of course one of the things we tend to do is exceptionally donald trump and one of the reasons why we do that in some ways to kind of displace our sins onto him the melodramatic kind of store he becomes the big bat monster the evil personality in our midst which which we can then kind of in some ways absolve ourselves of our sins by displacing them onto him but the question we have to ask ourselves. Why do they think this is effective because there there are people out here americans out here who actually find it compelling. This is a way of accounting for their own life circumstances. I'm not getting ahead because these people are jumping ahead. I'm not doing what is my children can't achieve. The american dream because big government is doing something on behalf of these other people right so we're exploiting people sense of vulnerability their sense that the country's changing that it's no longer a white nation and trump knows he's sitting right there in that sweet spot and unless yes we tell the story of the country in this way right then we're going to think that our only problem is true when the problem as i've said before is us right and i want to be very very clear when i say us a mean that in a general sense but i want the kids in el paso to know just as i've said to a black kids across this country that the problem isn't us never has been the issue at at the heart of this is an idea of whiteness that has over determined and distorted the very idea of democracy the one consistent assistant threat threat to all of this is a toxic idea of white identity and until we understand how it works how each it's rooted in our very history how can be exploited we will find ourselves on this racial hamster wheel over and over and over again <hes> the democrats spoke out forcefully and i don't know if they're getting it as deeply as that is but do you think the democrats see an opportunity to to change hearts and minds and turn the issue against trump will look. I think this issue certainly transcends politics. I mean what eddie is talking about is right and i think what we need to recognize..

"That's the panhandle you could get away with that state and breaking in the new york times a few moments before we sat down here tonight to be with you a story with this headline how the trump campaign used facebook ads to amplify fi his invasion claim reporting in the new york times about the deliberate campaign strategy the use of campaign dollars us to pay four messages on facebook amplifying his warnings his rhetoric but an invasion invasion. It's critical that we stopped the invasion estimate over a million dollars on facebook ads about immigration since march more than two thousand ads on facebook using that word invasion it is inescapable and the question is what the white house whether the white house these any imperative to do anything about it at all now that there are other parts of the country that are bearing the sharp end of this and whether any republicans republicans in congress to put a finer point on it the gun debate is is frozen because republicans are awol. There's an open question now. If republicans skins are going to be a wall on the question of white nationalism joining us now is democratic congressman veronica escobar of texas her district includes kids but walmart and el paso or saturday's mass shooting took place congressman escobar <hes> feel honored that you took time to be with us tonight our condolences of course to you and community. Thank you for making the time to be here my pleasure thank you for having me on rachel. We have been talking about a number of different aspects of what happened. In in your community we have been talking about the very difficult question about whether or not white nationalism has implicit support on the ragged edge of mainstream american politics we have have been talking about the president's responsibility in his own rhetoric and how it dovetails with some of what we have seen from the shooter we have been talking about gun policy in the prospects or lack thereof love for gun reform but we've also been talking about the fact that this is the worst terrorist attack in the most murderous terrorist attack targeting latinos in the modern history three of our country and this is something i know el paso is an eighty percent eighty five percent latino city your district heavily latino a lot of cross-border traffic and proudly so oh can you just tell us about how the the racial impact and the demographic impact here is resonating in your community and what you think the effect will be in the long run rachel. This is extraordinary community. One that has an abundance of love as you mentioned. We celebrate our location on the u._s. Mexico border we love the binational nature of our region <hes> and so <hes> you know it it. It is especially painful all gun violence is painful but it is especially painful that this seemed to be an intersection intersection between the epidemic of gun violence and the epidemic of hate that exists in our country. There's behind behind me. There's this incredibly beautiful makeshift. Memorial full of flowers rosaries crosses photos the the size of the crowd has only grown since i first arrived to go and be with our families and they are still so full of of pain but they're not full of hate. They're full of pain but they're not full of hate. The the president has use the words in the clips that you've shown that have caused a tremendous amount of pain that have fueled violence. Those words are still still hanging out there. He needs to recognize his role. He needs to recognize that those words have power. He needs to apologize and and he needs to take them back. We were told by law enforcement <hes> earlier that <hes> we have to be concerned about copycat <hes> acts of violence. It would go a long way for the president to say. I used racist language. I used words that a humanized people people and i was wrong and i take them back only after he does that. Should he be welcomed into our community. The president is we understand. <hes> going to visit your community. The mayor of l. paso has announced that the president is due to visit the day after tomorrow. In those remarks you just made and i know route speaking earlier today. You suggested the president at this point is not welcome in your district because of those past remarks. He's made that you've described as being so painful. What is your reaction tonight to the news that he is planning on coming to el paso and so soon.

"Our focus is on the violence. We don't we the f._b._i. Don't investigate ideology collagen no matter how repugnant we investigate violence any extremist ideology when it turns to violence. We're all over it b._i. Director chris racing the f._b._i. Doesn't investigate ideology except when it turns to violence he went on of course to say at that hearing that a majority of domestic terrorism cases the f._b._i. Has investigated did are in his words what you might call white supremacist violence after the violence of this past week and this weekend the question is fully open as to whether the federal government right right now is doing all that could be done to prevent these shootings particularly shootings fueled by right wing terrorist ideology six former former senior directors for counter terrorism at the national security council six directors who served under both republicans and democrats as president they have now issued a statement in calling for urgent reform of the way the nation handles this kinds of threat these six counterterrorism directors are calling for quote a significant infusion of resources to support federal state and local programs aimed at preventing extremism and targeted violence of any kind motivated by any ideology or directed at any american community mm unity quote we call on our government to make addressing this form of terrorism as high a priority as countering international terrorism has become since nine eleven quote. We simply cannot wait any longer. Joining us. Now are three of the national security council counter-terrorism directors who put their names to that statement joshua tsar jolly and nicholas rasmussen gentlemen. Thank you all very much for joining us. I really appreciate you. I'll be in here mr rasmussen. Let me start with you. You're calling for domestic terrorism to be given the same priority status as countering international terrorism is that just because of the temporal urgency of these recent attacks. How did how did the how did the international and domestic threats compare in terms of numerical threats again. I think chris raised testimony in recent weeks in in front of congress was with answers that question for you rachel. He talked about basically a rough parody in terms of the number of investigations at the f._b._i. Maintains <hes> mm between cases tied to domestic terrorism including white supremacy and cases tied to overseas terrorist groups like isis or al qaeda and of course we've certainly certainly seen the death toll increase from these domestic terrorism cases so that lends urgency of the conversation and and what part of what drove the group of us to to write this produce the statement yesterday yesterday. Was this sense that we look to the f._b._i. To solve this problem for us the f._b._i. Is the preeminent law enforcement organization in the world and yet is chris wray said if they don't get involved until it gets to the point where there's violence involved and obviously there's much that can be done left of that before we get to that point when a gun has been fired or a bomb has exploded and that's what we're doing on the international terrorism side but not on the domestic terrorism side mr mr ali on that point to hear director ray say. We're not interested in looking at ideology. We're interested only when it turns to violence what we are seeing here is not necessarily looking particularly at l. Passos shooter not somebody who is a member of a group who had a patch and a vest said he was part of something not somebody who's going to meetings are turning up at buildings that could be identified as hosting meetings. Thanks for these groups. This is somebody who participated an online community was motivated had the resources to do. It said he was about to do it moments before he actually did. How do you intervene at that point and who does it for our government. That's the hardest form of a terrorist threat to stop. You don't have necessarily communications to intercept you. Don't don't have a long tail ahead of the attack. It's hard on the international level but it's especially hard here on the domestic level. That's in part because the trump administration has rolled back some of the efforts to get at this problem earlier you had countering violent extremism unit stood up at the end of the obama administration quite deliberately to tackle forms of radicalization asian not just by al qaeda by isis but this type two under the new administration there was an effort to take away grants awarded to groups trying to help with this part of the problem into focus exclusively exclusively on the international yesterday in terms of the f._b._i.'s.

Innocent people was that for generosity and forgiveness welcome back that was meribel latin one of the survivors of the shooting eating in el paso again. The shooting killed twenty. Two people injured more than two dozen others. Federal law enforcement has chartered a rise as we've been saying and white nationalist violence over the past few years they are now investigating this shooting as a case of domestic terrorism for more on this front front. We want to bring in our justice correspondent pete williams pete. How does that designation changed the work. They have to do the investigation in front of them. It changes the numb. It changes the people who do it. There's a special dedicated cell of people in the federal government who will do this of course it doesn't change the on the ground for texas. This is a murder investigation instigation for them and it could lead to murder charges in the federal system as well as seems pretty likely that it will so legally where it ends up. It doesn't change it much but you know because patrick crusius according to the authorities has been talking so much not only will this apparently be a strong criminal case but it will also be an insight to allow them to go back. I can look at the anatomy of this attack and we learned an interesting fact today. The authorities now say that patrick crusius left allen texas drove ten to eleven hours hours got to el paso in the early morning hours of saturday and was hungry. He got lost in a neighborhood saw the walmart and according to the police went head into the walmart eight then came back out and we assume suited up got his weapon and started firing so they have lots of information about him but but that doesn't that doesn't mean to inject any last minute plans on his part this is still being treated as it not as a premeditated massacre asoka on his part. The the desire to kill certainly was premeditated. He says in his own essay and i agree with jim fox. We shouldn't call it a manifesto. He says he's been thinking about this for at least a month but we don't know is whether he had chosen that target apparently it was el paso but did he choose that walmart walmart or was it a target of opportunity when he got to town looking for something to eat. That's something we're still waiting to find out all right.

"The legal matters show. We did not Mr. non MSNBC happy Monday, there's a lot going on tonight. We have lots to get to. Because of that I want to get this particular I little bit of news out there right away because otherwise, I'm going to be all nervous and distracted about it, until I finally spit it out. So right off the bat. Let's just get this done here goes. A few years ago in two thousand twelve I wrote a book, it was called drift, the unknowing of American military power book about how the use of the American military basically got divorced overtime from civilian politics from our political decision making process in this country. Not exactly a screaming headline tabloid topic. I know. But I had something to say about that. And so I wrote that book and two things happened. When I wrote the book that surprise me number one, the book did very well, no one was more shocked about that. I was lots of people read it, it made the best seller list for long time, which is crazy. It's still sells a bunch the teach the book in all sorts of interesting places, which I'll tell you about some time if we ever have a beer together. So that was very surprising to me, it did great knocked me over with the feather. The other thing that happened. When I published drift is that I publicly and privately swore, I would never ever another book. I only did it with drift in the first place, because I felt like I had the idea of that book, the sort of the thesis of that book inside me like burning a hole in my chest, and the idea just wouldn't leave me alone. And I felt like I had to get it off my chest in order to be able to move on with my life. But honestly, it almost killed me writing that book, I have this whole other job. Right. It takes a ton of mental space to write a book. I said, I would never do it again. And I meant it quite ernestly. Which brings me to the thing I have to announce. It turns out, I meant to never write another book. I really meant it. When I said, I wouldn't. But I lied, the same thing happened again that made me write drift in the first place. It turns out, I had another idea other like thesis and other argument another, another case to make that was driving me nuts. And I was finding it very distracting. And I felt like I couldn't get away from it because it was really stuck in me. And as much as I tried to talk myself out of it, I realized that I needed to get it off my chest. I needed to spit it out get it down on paper. And so I have this new book, and I just got the cover from the publisher, which is here. As you can see it is called blow out, and you can see the subtitle is at the top there in smaller print. It's called blowout corrupted democracy. Rogue state Russia and the richest most destructive industry on earth. Cheery right. The cover is actually a bit more apocalyptic than the tone of the book itself. I will tell you basically, I have just written a book about the oil and gas industry and the consequences of that industry, which I think are a much bigger deal than we have generally appreciated both here at home and around the world. Among other things. This book may explain to you, why you might have noticed. I have been so unhealthily obsessed with Rex Tillerson and him being US secretary of state. It's also about some of what I think underlies, the Russian decision to attack or twenty sixteen election. It's also about some heroic, teachers and journalists and activists anyway, I hope you will like it. You can pre-order it as of today, the official publication date is Toby, I, but as of right now, this hour, you can, you can get it, you can pre-order it if you go to.

"With which he impugns opponents and undermines America's standing in the eyes of the world. And that is where we are today. Welcome back to morning Joe on this Friday, August thirty first. So with us, we have White House reporter for the Associated Press Jonathan Lemere, Republican strategist and MSNBC political analysts. Susan Dell, you NBC news Capitol Hill correspondent and host of Casey. DC on MSNBC Casey hunt and join the conversation, former Justice department spokesman and now on MSNBC Justice into Curie analyst. Matt Miller, White House bureau chief that the Washington Post and political analyst for MSNBC NBC news, Philip Rucker. And in just a moment, we will have new poll numbers from the Washington Post and ABC news, former US attorney for the northern district develop Bama and MSNBC contributor, Joyce bans and White House reporter for Bloomberg news, Jennifer Jacobs who interviewed the president yesterday in the Oval Office. So let's start right there. With the big takeaways, Jennifer, what did he tell you about the Muller investigation? Well, we asked him if he's going to comply with the subpoena, if he gets a Muller subpoena or if he would fight it and he didn't wanna talk to us about that. He he kind of sidestepped her out that and gave us typical answer, which is we'll see, but we're told that he that they have been discussing it, we were trying to press him on whether he will still sit down with Muller. It doesn't sound like he's going to go voluntarily. So we're trying to really corner him on whether he would fight a subpoena or not, and he just wouldn't go there. So Jennifer, you also talked about Jeff Sessions attorney general in your interview saying he's safe until at least the mid terms. Where did that sort of arbitrary deadline come about? We had heard Lindsey, Graham and other Republicans saying that they were urging him to keep Jeff Sessions as AG until the midterms. We said, hey, listen, are you gonna listen to your advisers here and do that? And he said, yes. And then we said, well, what about right after the. Midterms what happens in the days after. And he said, I don't want to comment on that, but he expanded a little bit more on what irritates him about Jeff Sessions. And it all comes down to the fact that he doesn't think that Jeff Sessions is going after Democrats the way the president would like him to. He kept saying the other side, the other side colluded with the Russians he mentioned Brennan and or and all these figures that you. You see him tweet about all the time that are clearly on his mind. And he would like Jeff Sessions to quote, do his job, just want them to do a good job. He wants them to go after these Democrats Miller again. So to window into the way president of views, the United States government, which is that his attorney general is there to protect him and not to protect the constitution. Yeah, two things you take that one, the kind of delusional state. He lives in where he thinks that people like Bruce or have committed a crime which is just absurd. There's no not many allegation of or has broken department of Justice rule. Let alone committed a crime. Second, this I did that the attorney general exists to prosecute and persecute. Donald Trump's political enemies and to protect him from any investigation prosecution. It is such a twisted view of the Justice department that is really contrary to any. What any previous president, how many pretty is present has the role and Jennifer, you're in your interview. Also talking with the president about John McCain, and we have a sound bite of that the way he's handled the last week or so. Let's listen. We had our disagreements and they were very strong. Disagreements disagreed with many of the things that. I assume he believed in. But with that being said, I respect your service to the country. You said he believes he's handled the last week. Well, we know Jennifer that the coverage of the last week has eaten him up that he John McCain is being lauded on television and newspapers, and by the Republicans in congress who worked alongside John McCain, what did you pick up off the president as you discuss John McCain, we asked him point blank, did you screw this up? The White House, tribute fall short..
