Fanne Foxe, ‘Argentine Firecracker’ at center of Washington, D.C. sex scandal, dies at 84
"Age, the name Fanny Fox means something. The one time stripper gained insane notoriety after she jumped into the tidal basin on an October night in 1974. She was in a gown the car she'd been in Had been pulled over by police and the man she was with made the story even bigger. He was Congressman Wilbur Mills, a Bible Belt politician who also led the powerful House Ways and Means Committee. That night, assured Fanny Fox his place in the annals of political scandals. And we've just learned today that Fox died recently at the age of 84. Let's learn more about her role in D. C History with Washington Post obituary editor Adam Bernstein. Hey, Adam, Thanks so much for being with us. And at this point, most people in Washington probably don't know anything about Fanny Fox, who was she It's a good question. Thank you so much for having me on well. The reason she was such a big name here is because of her involvement. As you said with Wilber Mills. He was the some have said the second most powerful man in Washington on Lee. We superseded by the president sort of it in the early 19 seventies, Wilbur Mills was chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, which controls a lot of money, and he had been in Congress for many decades. By that point, so he had this reputation of Um, accumulated reputation for food for power. And he also was from Arkansas, the Bible belt, and he had also cultivated this reputation as a as a workaholic. A grind. Um, a man of utter rectitude. And so what happened was, uh, you know, nothing would have been revealed of this affair, at least publicly. Except for this bizarre episode is you mentioned at the Washington the title based Mackenzie's senior The Jefferson Memorial. And on October 7 1950 74 He who? Wilbur Mills, who had been seeing Fanny Fox at her burlesque, Cole, You're in D. C. I was with her one night two in the morning and they get into this weird accident near the at the Tidal Basin. Basically, they're in a car without lights on the police. See them, They stopped him. And Fanny Fox. Or, you know, on impulse jumps out of the car and into the title base, And she starts you know, wrestling with the policeman who goes in after her. It's discovered that her face is all batter that Mills who were these Coke bottle glasses, His glasses are smashed. And is reeking of alcohol, and the TV crew happened to be nearby as well. So it's just perfect storm of of of politics and media, and this is right at the time of Watergate as well. So everybody was looking for the next scandal. So what ultimately happened to Wilbur Mills? Then what was the code on Fanny Fox? Good question. So Wilbur Mills survives. Oddly enough, the next election he goes, He goes back to Arkansas and sort of in this folksy manner tries to play it off. You know, his famous quote at the time is One should never drink champagne with a foreigner that that's the lesson he took away from him. And and you know, weirdly enough. He survived with his wife. She seems to back in publicly. But you know, right after winning the election and seemingly surviving by by a thread appears on her, appears with Fanny Fox again on stage in Boston, Fanny Fox and parlayed all the publicity into this lucrative career on the burlesque circuit. And he goes on stage. It's It's just terrible embarrassment captured on TV of all places again, and his career is them finished. He I think he resigns. He spends it goes into recovery. Disgraced from public office, but then spend the rest of his life. He lived a to least another 15 20 years, basically helping other recovering addicts like himself. Fanny Fox have Ah Less of Ah, a much harder time of it. She Prospers for a couple years winds up down in Florida. I couldn't find out that much about the family didn't want to cooperate, but I was able to look up various records. She she got a couple of all things degrees. Including one you know, in marine science of all. Wow. And but I couldn't figure out I couldn't figure out what she did with her time. Her lawyer didn't say your family wouldn't talk. Um I don't know. She had jobs or just How she struggled by and we will just have to live that mystery. Continue, Adam, because our time is up, though, clearly we could talk about this for a very long time. Thanks So much for being with us. Thanks. That's

White house seeks tax credit to help low, moderate income families
"News The White House is signaling support for significantly in spanning the amount of a child tax credit with a larger benefit going to families with kids younger than six. The current child tax credit is $2000. President already proposes to boost it. This here too, as much as $3600 for child. Massachusetts Congressman Richard Neal, who chairs the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, wants to write that expanded credit in the law and make it permanent. Chairman. Neil says the credit should be paid in monthly installments and even go to families that oh, no
Democrats to Unveil Up to $3,600 Child Tax Credit as Part of Stimulus Bill
"House committees are now hammering out the details of the nearly $2 Trillion Coburn relief package. Put forward by President Biden. Children are at the center of one of these pieces of the package. And with more on that I'm joined by ABC s Elizabeth Scholesy in Washington. Elizabeth Great to have you with us. As usual. This is expected to be direct cash payments to American families with kids. Hey, yeah, That's right. So great to be with you. This is a new proposals that we put forward today by Democrats in the House Ways and Means Committee, essentially calling for an expansion of the child tax credit, So the breaks out is essentially Asking for $3600 per child under the age of six and $3000 per child between the ages of six and 17 and the Democrats say this is holding true to Biden's promise to expand this chap this child tax credit. And to help alleviate poverty. No, there is research showing that this would help cut child poverty and half That's according to a Columbia University study, and this is part of a broader effort as we know of that nearly $2 trillion covert relief package, but certainly a Democratic priority here that have gotten some Republicans support. We saw similar opportunities will put forward by Senator Mitt Romney last week. So this is an interesting way to get more cash to families, especially lower income families and CBS interview yesterday, the president indicated he He doesn't really want to come off that 1.9 trillion mark, but is willing to negotiate with regard to income eligibility. That's exactly right. Joe Biden is holding true to the demand for $1400 stimulus checks. He says he will not go up go below that dollar amount, but he is willing to negotiate on who gets those checks. Currently, the proposal says, If you get more if you earn more than $75,000, you would start phasing out and you would not qualify their own individual That would be $150,000 per couple. So I didn't sound out open to maybe having that income threshold deal little bit lower. Notably those. Some Democrats are pushing back on that idea. We did hear from Senator Bernie Sanders and said anyone who got a stimulus check under President Trump. Should also get a check under President

These members of the committees are going to share their observations. Keep in mind For those of you who don't follow these issues as closely as others, ways and means is leased. In my view, the by far and away the most important committee in the House is not only responsible for trade and Attacks and care of policy, but also protect Social Security, Medicare welfare and related legislation. In other words, what ways and means does affects all of us every day, so we're going to start with Kevin Brady, a Republican. From the eighth District of Texas.

He was an executive for the Chamber of Commerce and also served in the Texas House of Representatives. He is a person of very broad interests. Ah addition to trade agreements and trade and tax legislation. Healthcare Small business chair of the health subcommittee has been working very hard.

He has also very broad interest climate change individuals with disabilities and those on welfare. Programs designed to discourage high school dropouts and discourage teenage teenage pregnancy and a series of pro business reforms in the state of Virginia.

Justice Department to try to hold the abuse of Swiss bank secrecy by Americans who were trying to shield their income from US taxation so again here we have two experts And we've asked both of them to speak for 12 15 minutes each, giving us their observations on Ah, and any other gloss that might help us understand this process.

"means committee" Discussed on The Healthcare Policy Podcast
"The first point is you know Rates are still high. If we look at the patients with the serious conditions that would require an antipsychotic. I, mean, the rate should be around you know two percent or something, and still we have a significant number of patients that are getting these drugs that shouldn't be. So you know relative success, it's just that it's relative and it really doesn't mean anything for the for the patients and families who are suffering for the inappropriate use of these drugs, and then the other thing I wanted to point out is that the data. Sort of raise some questions because the way that cms calculates the data are they removed the short stay nursing home resident and they removed people with psychosis diagnosis from that calculation. So the report you know, we point to the fact that there has actually been an uptick in reporting of of the falsifying of psychosis diagnoses to avoid the surveyors, and so if you exclude those people from the calculation, you have a significant underestimate on which is why our numbers are substantially higher than those reported by the National Partnership and CMS. Okay let's let's get more on target relative to the report and let's go into if you could step us through what exactly did the trump administration do when it took off his relative to regulatory oversight of use of these meds in. Post Acute. So I I want to paint sort of broader picture, which is one of right? You know regulatory reduction. The administration has been touting their patients over paperwork campaign, which is not specific to nursing homes at sort of you know cross cutting around. The all of the different providers in Medicare, and so you know every time they issue a rule they talk about what they've done to reduce the burden on providers So that sort of part of this, but I think specific to this particular report. The important thing to highlight is the trump administration eliminated on you all the Obama era per day finding practices that were implemented in July two thousand seventeen, right. So if you have a fraction, you're find every day until he remedy that. And what the trump administration did was they issued a single fine instead and that you know in the case of inappropriate anti psychotic citations that was accounted for two thirds of all citations in that space you know I, I think the Kaiser. Health. News. Had A report that showed that average aggregate fines on nursing homes. That endangered or injured residents dropped from forty one, thousand, two, hundred, sixty under President Obama class year in office in two thousand sixteen to Twenty eight, thousand, four, hundred, five in the period between April twenty, seventeen and March two, thousand, eighteen, and I think that's really one of the important points to raise here in the context of this report and how he saw the rates of citations decrease under the trump administration. Okay thank you, There is some discussion about the interaction between the committee and cms you do site the fact that the chairman Neil wrote a letter on this matter to cms in seven eighteen or July eighteen he do make nor the fact that cms never provided the committee with a written plan to reduce use to reduce falsified diagnoses..
Dr. Rachel Dolan Discusses The Antipsychotic Drug Epidemic
"Welcome to the healthcare policy podcast on the host David Intra. Kosovo. With me today Dr Rachel Dolan the US House of Representatives ways and Means Committee majority staffer to discuss the majority staffs recently released report titled Under enforced and over prescribed. ANTIPSYCHOTIC drug epidemic ravaging America's nursing homes. Dr Dole and welcome to the program. I David thanks so much for having me. Please call me Rachel. While this'll be the last time Dr Dolan's bio is posted on, of course, the podcast website. In testimony before the House Energy and Commerce Committee two, thousand seven, the FDA's Dr David Graham stated quote. Unquote. Fifteen thousand adults elderly people in nursing homes are dying each year from the off label use of antipsychotic medications. For an indication that the FDA knows the drug doesn't work the problem has been only FDA for years and years close quote. Legal the FDA does provide a black box warning label. Regarding off label use of these drugs, eleven years later, Human Rights Watch published a report titled They Want Docile. How. Nursing homes in the US overmedicated people with dementia. The report found in two thousand, sixteen, seventeen quote unquote massive use or abuse of Anti Psychotics, for example, Sarah. Quel. Doll and Rispler doll that have serious side effects including sudden cardiac death. The human rights report estimated in an average week over one hundred, seventy, nine, thousand, long-stay Nursing Home Facility patients who administered antipsychotic drugs. Without a diagnosis which the drugs are indicated or approved rover, polar disorder and schizophrenia in testimony the ways and means. Committee. Heard this past November Richard Mollet Executive Director of the Long Term Care Community coalition concluded quote the use of San Anti psychotics in skilled nursing facilities is so extensive that puts the US in violation of internal conventions and covenants on torture and cruel inhumane and degrading treatment or punishment. Close quote. This is my third related interview. In December twenty twelve I discussed the topic with Diana Zuckerman. And in February, eighteen high interviewed Hannah Lamb who authored the above mentioned human rights report. With me again to discuss the ways and means report just released titled Under enforced and over prescribed is Rachel Dolan the reports lead author. So that Rachel as background let's get right into this or immediate neatly into the specifics of the report. What did the report find regarding the extent to which? They're persists overuse or misuse of anti psychotics in skilled nursing. David. So the report showed what what you what we would expect from your introduction, which is the use of antipsychotic does persist in nursing homes across the country and it remains quite high and not of course, has implications for patient safety and and health We found in the fourth quarter of Twenty nineteen approximately twenty percent of all skilled nursing facility residents in the US. So that's about two, hundred, Ninety, eight, thousand, six, hundred, fifty people every week received some form of antipsychotic medication and most of that was without any psychosis diagnosis for which these drugs are indicated So specifically, we actually looked at trends and surveyor citations for unnecessary medication use in nursing home. So that's kind of the. Part of this study and what we found was a clear change in citation rates for these facilities between the change in administrations from the Obama Administration to trump administration So we found citations for antipsychotic misuse in sniffs increased by two hundred percent between twenty, fifteen, twenty seventeen but then declined by twenty two percent from two thousand, seventeen to twenty eighteen, and importantly a ten percent of citations associated with actual harm or immediate jeopardy to a residence health or safety. So those are some of the most severe citation surveyors ever capture resulted in no fine from twenty seventeen to twenty eighteen under the trump administration. So you know. I. Would say even though this study in particular couldn't determine causation we we did see a clear association between the Trump Administration's regulatory rollback campaign twenty, seventeen, twenty eighteen and a reduction in citations for these particular drugs. Okay thank you and we'll get into the trump administration's regulatory decisions in this regard in a minute let me just ask as a follow up or an aside question and I don't think I saw this new report. So you may not have these numbers top of mind but worth asking, can you give an approximation of the cost? To the Medicare program at least relative to the overuse I, mean, this is a massive amount of money in reimbursement for these medications. I don't remember offhand. Let's see I think in the in the actually in the report we got About one third of older adult Medicare part d enrolling with dementia who spent more than one hundred days in a nursing humber prescribed antipsychotic in two, thousand, twelve constituting roughly three, hundred, sixty, three, million part D plan payments that year and of course, there's also cost associated with hospitalizations for inappropriate use of these drugs So I would expect you know that that that is obviously very under an understatement understated estimate that does not capture the full realm of payments. So it's it's fairly substantial.
Conscience of the Country: A Tribute to John Lewis
"Congressman John Robert Louis was born in Troy Alabama on February twenty first nineteen, forty, two sharecroppers, Willie Mae, and Eddie Lewis. He is known for telling the story of preaching chickens at the boy from troy as he was nicknamed went on to become revered world leader and fearless advocate for voting rights organizing sit ins in. Nashville in nineteen sixty and becoming one of the original freedom writers Mr Lewis joined the Movement for civil rights and never looked back. As the chairman of snake he served as the youngest speaker at the march on Washington in nineteen, sixty three. In nineteen, sixty, five alongside reverend hosea, Williams Congressman Lewis led a march for voting rights across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma Alabama where he endured violent attacks by state troopers and vigilantes. Mr. Lewis fell to the ground with a fractured skull and five months later, president Lyndon B, Johnson signed the voting rights act of nineteen, sixty five until now. On the other side of that bridge Mr Lewis marched on into a life in career of activism and public service. He lost his first attempt at running for Congress in nineteen seventy seven was appointed the same year by President Jimmy Carter to the Director of action a Federal Agency for volunteerism. He then won a seat on the Atlantic City Council in nineteen eighty one and five years later ran for Congress in one. So much of the conversation about congressman, John. Lewis has been about his activism, but he stood on so many legislative accomplishments including sponsoring or co sponsoring more than eleven hundred bills. One of the most notable bills gave us the National Museum of African American History and culture in two thousand three. He served as a subcommittee chair for oversight for the prestigious ways and means. Committee, and after the retirement of Congressman John Conyers. became the dean of the Congressional. Black Caucus in twenty nineteen, he presided over the House floor as Congress passed hr four. Since his passing the bill was renamed the John Lewis Voting Rights Act which was adopted by unanimous consent. Before being admitted to the hospital, MR? Lewis stood in the heart of Black Lives Matter Plaza. He took his last breath on July seventeenth twenty twenty. But his legacy lives on in all of us. We begin this John Lewis. Tribu. where he also began with civil rights joining me for this very important conversation are Vanita Gupta President and CEO of the Leadership Conference on civil and Human Rights Derek Johnson, president and CEO of the of Lacey Pe-. Reverend, Michael Pfleger the senior pastor of the faith community of Saint. SAVINA. Reverend Dr William J Barbour, the second president of repairs of the breach and Co Chair of the poor people's campaign. An latasha Brown, Co founder and chief doer of black voters matter. A thank you all so much for making time to talk with me today about on. John Lewis. So I want to start with I'm. VANITA. Because of your work at the Department of Justice of course. I believe the year before you got to DOJ. The the case, the decision that gutted the voting rights act shelby versus holder, and so I wanna hear from you on some of the things that you experienced working with Mr Lewis on the other side of that because we know that right after that, all of the advocacy picked up to reinstate section five to get the voting rights on provision where they needed to be in Congress. And so just talk a little bit about some of your work with Mr Lewis on those issues. Shore. Is Truly an honor to be here with my. Warrior colleagues and friends and loved ones in the movement. Especially on today Angela. I think probably all of us were in tears watching Mr Lewis Funeral you know twenty thirteen is you mentioned that United States Supreme Court gutted the heart of the voting rights act in a devastating decision the shelby county versus holder decision. That really took away the longstanding tool of one of the most effective pieces of federal legislation in our nation's history in the voting rights act. That quired states with long histories of racial discrimination in voting to pre clear with the United States Justice Department changes made at the local level for election practices that had racially discriminatory impact. And the removal of that tool within hours of that decision coming down for the United. States. Court states like, North Carolina Texas enacted, Monster? Voter. Laws doing everything from. Putting forth restrictive voting laws cutting back early voting same day registration. And it took years to litigate and to hamlet the Justice Department did working with advocates and activists in all states. Where so years for federal courts in a place like North Carolina finally say that the State legislators North Carolina had enacted there. Monster Voter Suppression Law would such surgical precision to disenfranchise African Americans and meanwhile countless elections had taken place but Mr Lewis of legacy was that in the face of this overwhelmingly bad decision for voting rights he immediately. Went to action, which is always his way was never in a would not allow despair to hold him back inside we need to do everything we can restore it in went to work with legislative partners in the Congressional Black Caucus to put forth a bill immediately to restore it on every prior reauthorization of the voting. Rights. Act angelides always been done under. The Watch of Republican president and at least one house of Congress being Republican the unfortunate thing is after this decision, the really has not been bipartisan support and but Mr Lewis Year after year would stand at the podium introduced the law in say or in it for the long haul I've been there before I almost lost my life fighting for this law. In one, thousand, nine, sixty five, and we will persevere to us and we've got to keep our eye on the prize and we're not gonNA. Let go until the day that the bill becomes law. So in this moment. On where we're seeing a lot of performance morning by Senate Republicans who obstructed day after day everything that he has stood for and fought for with his life. It is time not only for us to restore the voting rights act passed the voting rights advancement act but to do everything else that we can to ensure open voting and go beyond it as President Obama said today won't be enough to rest and return to the status quo. It is time for this country to unregarded into make our democracy work for all of us in Gulf Far Beyon- restoration of the voting rights act in this moment.
Arizona Congressman David Schweikert remembers John Lewis
"Of Congressman John Lewis lies in state of the U. S Capitol and Arizona Republican is sharing some fund memories of the late civil rights icon. Congressman David Schweikert served with Lewis on the House Ways and Means Committee and tells our Louis was revered in the halls of Congress. When he would speak in the committee. The committee would just sort of go silent because he had this very big voice, though most of the time Very quiet. He's one of those who actually has an amazing story and yet was kind to all of Lewis walked alongside Dr Martin Luther King Jr and the famed five day 54 mile March from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama in 1965. Lewis died on July 17th at the age of 80. Jeremy

"President trump faces a clash with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Senate Republicans over the president's desire for a two trillion dollar infrastructure spending bill something he promised during his twenty sixteen campaign what's going on here here to explain is Alex Bolton senior staff writer at the hill Alex set this up trump earlier this week in Dorsey two trillion dollar infrastructure package of member during the twenty sixteen presidential campaign he blocked his opponent Hillary Clinton formally proposing something like two hundred seventy five billion dollars for sure after trump one thing big old robot that failed to materialize during its first three years in office now he sees an opportunity on on Twitter earlier this week you need to call in dollars but that is facing opposition from his allies in Congress Senate Republicans Mitch McConnell the Senate Majority Leader he's putting the brakes on a package that is emerging from the house he said look we need to wait for me to figure out what we need to do it would first need to address the direct economic fallout from the across the borders the crisis before going on to sort of more tangentially related policy priorities which is what infrastructure is yeah you said the the phrase there is tangentially related I guess Augustus of an infrastructure bill would had some benefit or spur vide some help to the economy during the pandemic well I mean we just are I mean just this week or more than there are more than six billion unemployment claims this is a an all time record on top of that more than three billion last week so in two weeks we'll see ten million claims for unemployment benefits that is the sky high record shattering all previous records so I think the thought or discussion right now this marks the record is that the need is going to be more media more acute than anything that two trillion dollars in infrastructure can address I'm sure instructions nice but we are in a crisis right now people need money to pay the bills pay the rent for groceries is infrastructure projects that said take an introduction you can take a year to two years perhaps longer to get the money on the economy that takes way too long and you know they remember the lessons from the two thousand nine American recovery and reinvestment act passed under president Obama during the last financial crisis that took a long time for those benefits to matriculated in a bombing that a lot of heat for the economy taking so long to respond speak with Alex Bolton senior staff writer at the hill his pieces called trump's ambitious infrastructure vision faces Senate GOP GOP roadblocks so at this point even though infrastructure might be beneficial to members of Congress coming up for election in November phase four of a relief for stimulus bill it might be more likely at this point well if the question is what's going to be in the face for stimulus bill and Nancy Pelosi the speaker and co chairman of L. conference calls this week saying they want infrastructure would be a major major component of that space for bill now what Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says that look this this is hello C. subscribing to the attic you over Obama Kerr chief of staff Rahm Emanuel bill number never let a crisis go to waste in other words you can use the crisis to achieve policy goals that you have been able to previously the instructor kind of falls into that category now only people she bills the president this is an opportunity to get a break through something that they've long wanted immediate pressure talks going on well before the coronavirus crisis and so I just think right now we're gonna include top sellers will consider it to be wrong with it because while it there are potentially long term economic to be sure to package it really doesn't address the immediate economic fallout of this coronavirus cases which as I mentioned has created a ten million unemployment claims in two weeks what is our treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin say about all this he seems to be the go between between say the White House and Congress these days well I mean he said in a recent television interview that he's at the grocery store Richard Neal with democratic chairman of the house ways and means committee and eagle east twenty to move forward so he would like to get this done and he doesn't need to have a bit of problem debt Republicans in Congress to do what I eat all you know that during the negotiations of the packaging to truly dollar perhaps two point usually about package we'll see what the dust settles when those negotiations were going on if some Republicans were critical writing we wonder what she'd do to this plane for

Can't well in your a member and twenty sixteen in the middle of the campaign. He actually said, you know, what Hillary of you release your emails all released my taxes.

It's there. Why doesn't he let me throw it to you? Well, I think that even if they somehow the Democrats in charge of the house right now get the taxes they're not gonna find what they're looking for. I personally think the reason that we haven't seen his taxes is because the taxes might show that he's not as rich as he says he is and for Donald Trump that is more important than anything image is everything to him. Right branding. He go all of that. He might not be the billionaire. He tells people that he don't forget even though he talked about running for president going back as far as nineteen Eighty-eight.

"This really revolves around. What does Trump have Hasni leverage over Schumer and Pelosi? They don't wanna wall. They've offered a paltry one point three billion Trump wants five billion. He wants five billion to build a wall Schumer Pelosi don't want a wall, but they have offered one point three billion as a starting point. They think they held all the cards if they deny Trump any of the federal budget to build a wall. As the incoming king. And Queen of the of while she's going to be the Queen of the house Schumer is of course, going to be in the minority over in the Senate, but he's still the democrat leader there. So that's why they're both up there. So Trump wants five billion. Here's what's happened. The original budget request for the department of defense. Trump did not give the secretary of defense. Mad dog Mattis every dime. The s for Trump actually has submitted a budget or will that does not contain. This is before today the precise amount of money that Mattis wants. Pelosi and Schumer offering one point three Trump says he wants five billion all of a sudden Trump has changed his mind on the defense budget, and he has told Mattis to submit a defense budget for the Pentagon of seven hundred fifty billion dollars. This'll be the proposal for fiscal year. Twenty twenty. This is different. From a previous promise that trumpet made to to cut the defense budget. It wasn't much, but it was still a cut rather than what usually are automatic expenses. Seven hundred and fifty billion dollar number. Came out of a meeting last week. When Trump got the lay of the land and figured out that Pelosi Schumer are probably not going to come close to the five billion dollars or agreeing to it. In in the budget because this is all going to happen next year. This is what they're trying to get some of this done before the budget expires the end of this year government shutdown on December twenty first if they don't come to some sort of agreement on spending for the remainder of the year. Now, the original defense budget was seven hundred thirty three billion. That's what Trump previews he said that he would support. Now, he's asked managed to go back and resubmit seven hundred and fifty the upshot is. That Trump is if Pelosi and Schumer do not join him and authorizing agree to five billion dollars for the wall. Trump is gonna take it out of the military budget. That's why the increase from seven hundred thirty three billion to seven hundred and fifty billion dollars is thirty four billion dollars additional in the defense budget authorization request than what the original number was. And Trump is said to be thinking of getting the five billion if Pelosi in Shurmur don't play ball. And there's no reason for them to they don't wanna wall they want no part of Trump having any kind of success on his key issue there up there talking to him. I think it's it's exploratory to figure out what is mood is to figure out where his head is. But as far as the Democrats are concerned, they now run the town again. And since they have the house of representatives and run the ways and means committee in the house, which is where all spending bills must by law. Originate on less presidents try to play games with executive actions. And executive orders, but all legislative. Funding bills must begin in the house in the ways and means committee. So it looks like Trump in requesting an additional thirty four billion dollars for defense. Could simply say I'm going to build the wall out of defense money, and I'm going to call it a national security project. This is one of the theories is being bandied about. And this would this in effect would be an end run around Pelosi in Schumer and anybody else in congress either party, neither of whom want a wall forget down to brass tacks. But it's key for Trump is, you know, it's the seminal primary campaign issue. It got him elected getting a handle on border security, illegal immigration and building a wall. And I think Trump knows that he's got to get something done on that score. Especially now with the phony attempts to claim that private financial transactions b. Between him and a couple of women who were trying to extort him are somehow crimes, which would qualify as impeachable. Indictable crimes. It just I it's. It's absurd. Mark Penn has has written a piece on this today, which covers much of the ground. We covered on that whole premise. Yesterday. And there's some others weighing in on it as well. Who are they understand exactly what's going on? When you compare by the way. What one of the lines? And Mark Penn's column is that we are on the verge of going back to the horrible days of nineteen ninety eight which is a period of time. Mark Penn says, we should not ever want to return to what what happened in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. Well, that's when Bill Clinton was impeached and everybody thought he was impeached over sex. He actually wasn't impeached over sex. He was impeached because he lied under oath. During grand jury testimony and attempted to get other people to lie under oath. Which was a direct assault on. Of course, the rule of law and the constitution. But everybody thought that the Republicans are going after Clinton for sex having an illicit affair with a nineteen year old helpless intern who had groupie is and groupie heart and was taken advantage of an says we're going back now to sex. We're going to go back, and we're going to get rid of another president because the sex and this isn't even about sex. Yes. D And why and Muller will say about sex. This is about illegal campaign, finance, violates. It's not that at all. And if necessary will revisit this to again, make the point. But you see here's the here's the thing. Back back to the budget business with Pelosi and Schumer, congress does not usually earmark. And Reed dollar in the federal budget. And how it must be spent. They designate areas and how much money an area or an item or a department is going to get, but they never very rarely it's done, but it's very rarely this congress actually specify dollar for dollar where money must be spent. So in the defense budget, if there's thirty four billion dollars extra and congress does not say that the money must be spent here. And if they if they do not earmark every dollar defense budget for certain projects that means Trump's theory is that hey, that's money. That's not earmarked gets not specified. I can take it. And do what I want since. I'm commander in chief. If the Democrats figure this out there, this is what's going on? Then they might try to earmark everything they might to put something in the legislation specifying that not a single penny. The defense budget or any other budget can be used to build a wall, or as they might say nothing over one point three billion. And you might be saying, well, if they're totally opposed to it why allow one point three billion. Well, it's still allow them to say they care about border security. It's allow them to say that they've they've authorized one point three billion. It's also not nearly enough to get the job done. It's not nearly enough to build a serious wall in all of the places that a serious wall needs to be built. But it allow them cover it allow them to be able to say and for the media to say about them that hey, we care about border security. We worked with the president. But his demands were just over the top unreal. An unusual one point three billion and he refused. It and is now making an end run. Bottom line for Trump is get it done. If he has to expand the defense budget by thirty four billion dollars and go take an additional three and a half or the total five billion out of it to get the wall built. He's got to do it. That is for lack of a better term the security blanket that Trump has now Rasmussen has come out with Trump approval numbers forty nine percent. But I wanna play you and audio soundbites and if is number six, I'm sorry number five. Yesterday. I made the point that what the media has to do in order to actually allow other authorities to impeach Trump. Or to get rid of him. They've got to drive as approval numbers down to the thirties. They have to do that. Like, they did George W Bush light, they did Nixon. They have to do this. They have to somehow get those numbers down. So that it is apparent Trump has no support left. And that's why this never ending media onslaught it's designed to cause people to abandon Trump to lose interest in supporting him or to become afraid to support him and already their stories in the drive-by media in the stack today about unnamed very prominent people in Washington under Republicans Zaid or getting very very nervous about sticking tight with Trump. Now, this audio sound bite from CNN is of their political director named David chalian on the program today called new day. And this is a report on a new CNN Paul on Trump's handling of the Russia investigation. He's handling of the Russian investigation is back to an all time low in our polling only twenty nine percent of Americans approve the way President Trump is handling the investigation. Fifty seven percent disapprove, take a look when you look at it by party. I find this fascinating. The big movement is among Republicans. He's lost about seventeen percent support here in approval of his handling the investigation only fifty one percent of Republicans. Now approve of the way Donald Trump is handling the investigation, you not the number twenty nine percent, FOX twenty night camp contain themselves seeing it I knew it was going to be CNN and the first media outfit out. There was a poll showing Trump's numbers down to thirty percent or less this one specific Paul on handling of the Russia investigation. Trump's handling of the Russia investigation and a CNN Paul comes in at just under thirty percent. Do not doubt me ladies. And this is the first step. They are going to be more of these others are going to pick up the CNN Paul report it, and it's going to be that number thirty percent. Twenty nine percent. Trump's approval numbers falling Trump's approval on the Russian investigation. Whatever it doesn't matter. What the subject of the Paul is if they can get a Paul the trumpet somewhere twenty nine thirty percent. They are going to run with it. Because that remains their objective. So right now, the cable news networks are showing delayed video of Trump and Pence and Pelosi in Schumer in the Oval Office. No details on the talks yet. But I can tell you pretty confident what this how this this might. Manifest itself because I really can't see Pelosi and Schumer agreeing to this five billion. They don't wanna wall. They certainly they don't want Trump to have any kind at this stage any kind of success. On an issue, especially one that was his primary campaign issue in one. They know is the reason he got elected they want him to crash and burn on this. So it's going to be up to Trump to creatively. Find money they don't authorize, and they're going to have to find ways to make sure that Trump can't spend money that they have an authorized because they haven't earmarked it. Now. Everybody in the rooms, all smiles and everything, but we're gonna find out here. You know, what is Trump have what leverage does he have? We don't know. We know that he's sitting on documents classified documents about the Russia investigation that apparently are dynamite and will blow the lid off a whole lot of people and careers, and we've been told that he's waiting to release all of this for his re-election effort in twenty twenty doesn't want to release it too soon. Doesn't want it to not work when he releases it, I don't know if any of the classified data. He's holding involves Schumer or Pelosi or would frighten them enough about the impact. It would have on the democrat party. So if he doesn't have any leverage other than something like that or something we don't know about then it's going to be down to his negotiating skills and the art of the deal, and this kind of thing and how he can make these people understand the severity and the seriousness of this. But they don't wanna border wall. And they really don't want. A very massive reduction that illegal immigration anyway, they need their permanent underclass. They need a constant stream of people that cannot provide for themselves. It can't speak the language. They need that group of people. The reas that the vast majority of them are going to vote democrat. There's also a story in the stack here. Seven hundred fifty million people want to migrate. Seven hundred and fifty million. I don't know how they reach them. But then got a poll here that found seven hundred fifty million people want to migrate and the US is the most popular destination. This is a Gallup world poll revealed yesterday more than seven hundred fifty million adults or fifteen percent of the world's population between two thousand fifteen to twenty seventeen said that they would like to move to another country if they could that's up from fourteen percent three years ago. The US has consistently ranked the number one destination for potential migrants. Really? That's a shock. And we are the number one sought out destination. Now seven hundred fifty million people want to migrate to the US..
