"Michael Bauer, the president, starting his first full day in the United Kingdom. And he had a simple message when he landed yesterday, or it may have been early this morning. I don't even know what time it is in great Britain with the message the United States says back. I've got some personal thoughts on that statement coming up, but what's going on with the prayers? And let's not forget l l cool, J said. Don't call it a comeback. I've been here for years and what you're seeing from President Biden. His first remarks as president overseas is Look, America is ready to resume its leadership role in the world. It's ready to recommit to global alliances, and it's ready to push democracy over the rise of authoritarianism, and that's what he's basically trying to differentiate himself. From where Donald Trump's more isolationist approach. That was certainly something that all of our allies had called it. The isolationist approach that angered and shocked our allies over the course of four years. This is Biden trying to separate himself from that, saying that he's here in Europe. He looking to repair relations with America's closest allies, in an effort to counter those growing threats from China and Russia in his first big moment on the world stage. Now, all of this, the foreign policy thing providing he's very familiar with right as vice president of the Obama. He was knee deep in that foreign policy, so all of these people are going to be familiar to them. The turf is going to be familiar to him. Nothing new here except the fact that things have changed over the past four years. The fact is covid came in. You had China becoming even more dominant economic and military power. Russia is now less of a cold war adversary and his carrying out cyber attacks here in the United States, and, um, But those challenges you have our oldest allies that are skeptical to find out if they have a partner they can trust. After four years of the Trump Administration and America's first Being the foreign policy. So those are some questions and some you're going to have hesitancy from the city. Look, everybody's going to welcome him with open arms, but at the same time they're going to say, Look, if we have this G seven summit here, like the plans are for right now, and we create policies. We have discussions. We come up with some sort of a plan. Who's to say at the end of this four years for President Biden That's not just all going to be wiped away, and technically, you have that concern every single time. There's an election in this country. But when you had the Trump administration come in, and they kind of removed the Paris climate accord, and we're having it out with NATO, it really became a threatening element to our our allies rather than an allegiance if you will. And so this is something Biden is going to try to fix specifically so he can make sure all our allies from the G seven as well as NATO. Have our six now as we start to make our way into these discussions early next week, or Biden is going to sit down with Putin And as he said yesterday in front of the military, he's going to tell Putin what he wants Putin to hear. Yeah, and what I really like about that, and I'm glad you brought that part up. I was impressed by what he had to say as he addressed the troops. But I did snicker a little bit when, as you just pointed out that the president said he will. He's vowed to let him know what I want him to know talking about Putin, but the fact that he dropped and lowered his voice when he when he said that part Yes. Yeah, it was really. I mean, it actually felt a little bit of the time like all, too, When I first heard, I thought Biden couldn't remember what he was going to say to Putin first thought that I thought, Well, he's actually maybe he's trying to take this delicate. I'm just going to tell them like you would tell your kid like no, this is it because I'm the parent, but it really did feel like he wants to have that coalition behind him before he makes his way to sit down with Putin so that He feels he's got at least a little bit more power. Look, all he would be able to do best is tell Putin what he wants Putin to here that's going to be it is going to tell him what he wants him to know, and whether anything happens from that is unclear. Putin's try to threaten some kind of elements of pulling out of the space station. I don't think anybody necessarily cares about that. Right now They're more concerned about China's space littering going up there and having that come crashing down on Earth. But at the end of the day it needs to Biden needs to feel when he sits down in Geneva with Putin that he has the backing of the G seven and the NATO alliance. Alright, not that you need extra points. But you get extra points today for the L L. Cool J reference. San Antonio, first news correspondent Michael Bauer use radio 1200.

"Michael Bauer joins us from NBC News radio could former President Donald J. Trump, who has a permanent ban on Facebook. What could that be lifted? Michael Bauer? What are we finding out? Good morning? Yeah, we're gonna find out for sure. Tomorrow Morning. Nine A.m. Eastern. We're hearing will be posted on the page. Work Facebook incorporated New oversight board. They will be posting the decision on whether or not Donald Trump will be allowed to post again on Facebook and Instagram, some four months after he was banned from Facebook in the aftermath. The January six capital, right this this is there's hope out there right now for Trump supporters who want to see him return to Facebook, based upon recent rulings by that same oversight board now again, this oversight board was created back in October of 2020. It's been called by some is the Facebook Supreme Court of content. They have looked at the quasi judicial body that has looked at a couple of decisions made by Facebook. And then issued rulings on those decisions. And so far of the six cases that they've decided on five of them have been overturning What Facebook's decision Woz overturning that decision, So there's right at this point, certainly, historically odds that might be in favor of President Trump. Having that bands from Facebook lifted on some level again going back to why this all happened. Facebook had ample reason to ban Trump and his 35 million followers, plus the 24 million on Instagram. Over a period of months, Trump used a range of social media platforms. Undermine public confidence in the legitimacy of the 2020 election and then use that same basis for social media to draw thousands of followers to Washington, D. C in January for what he promised would be a wild protest. And then as we've seen footage of, some say he directed the crowd to March on the Capitol, where Congress was formerly counting the electoral votes. Now, when that was all happening in the insurrection was underway. That's when the crux of this all came down because President Trump had posted a video talking about how the election was ripped and stolen from these people that he understood their pain. And Mark Zuckerberg decided that was the time to take that video down and suspend President Trump's account that he was simply flaring up the people that were there. At the insurrection, so he suspended Trump for 24 hours. The following day, Zucker Burg came back and said, the risks of allowing the president to continue to use our service during this period or simply too great. That was after five people have died in the ensuing attack after 140 police officers were injured, so they suspended him Now you're about to have this Group of people with your 20 globally diverse academics, lawyers, civic leaders, former prime minister of Denmark and the Nobel Peace Peace Prize laureate all making a decision on whether President Trump will be allowed to return that Facebook and instagram or if he should remain banned permanently. All right. So just a question, though, Facebook Twitter, all social media platforms could be under a really interesting situation here because there's a lot of lies that represented on Facebook and Twitter every single day, and there are a lot of shall we say, miscreants, people that commit crime? That also get on these platforms. They don't have this way You know of, you know, 30 million people or 36 Million people are followers, but they still have this way of a lot of people. In a community where there could be destruction. So what's good for the goose is good for the gander. What if that happens? Could that happen here from these platforms? I mean, it's certainly good and you could look at this and you could say you know that there are elements that need to be people that need to be banned because of whatever it is that they're saying on illegal front or a criminal front on some level. That's certainly a plan here. I think you're looking at your right the number one under the microscope because of the sheer number of people that he had following him. The number one account being that of President Trump's. But look in the case of some of the overturning that have gone on. So far. You have a situation where somebody had posted something about Just to whether or not they may make that same kind of decision here for former President Trump Indeed, all right, we'll see what happens. That'll be at nine a.m. tomorrow. Michael Power Appreciate your time was always from NBC News radio. I'm Tony Cruz contacted us wearing these, along with Scott Fitzgerald isn't looking sports.
How hospitals in different parts of the country are grappling with COVID-19
"News radio reporter Michael Bauer re capping the latest on the Corona virus outbreak across the country and really what makes this one different, especially when it comes to hospitals. Is the initial wave that we saw in this country back in March and April that was mainly confined to the Northeast and the Northwest. Although there was some spread and other places, not nearly the levels that the Northeast in the Northwest saw, then the summer research into the virus. You have mainly the Sunbelt getting hit pretty hard, but with this round while the Midwest is certainly taking the worst of it at the moment, it is happening all over and that causes problems for resource allocation because you're not able to pull necessary. Really from other parts of the country, whether it's PPE, or whether its staff to help out with those areas that are having the biggest surges. That's really where we might see the strain on the health care system, right? Big part? Yes, you're You're certainly seeing all over the country were hospitals are at capacity right now or just brimming over the rim of capacity. No, the concern there is that in hospitals, maybe that you had only seen in New York. Or certain elements of the Northeast. Or maybe, you know, in the Washington or or California sides of the initial part of the pandemic here, or hospitals were really up against the wall. That's where the focus was solely Now you're seeing that across the country, you're seeing that in states where you hadn't really seen that kind of panic before. This is the first time that they're getting up to those kinds of numbers. That's a concern because people who are having heart attacks or other health issues may not be able to get the health care that they're looking for, because of the vast numbers of people that will be in the hospital, suffering from Cove it and trying to get over that there's there are large numbers here that will affect the health of people going forward, who have just normal health concerns and problems that have nothing to do with covert. But they will be affected by covert because of the hospital's being his packed as they are, and hospitals do have the ability to expand. In fact, they're quite flexible and they Quite creative and setting up new areas that can act as on ICU or different things like that. The key is you have to have the staff to handle all of that. And really what I'm hearing from the experts that I talked to it comes down to the personnel. Is there gonna be enough personnel? I know the Mayo Clinic there were there were over 900 almost 1000 staff members who were out because of Corona virus related issues, whether they were infected or they had to corn. Team because they were in contact with somebody who was infected, and that causes a real strain. And that seems like when you get into that situation, that's where the problems can really arise from. Yeah, and unlike the start of this, where you would have physicians that would come from other states to go and throw support behind New York or Connecticut or New Jersey, whoever was running into problems there, even in California. You don't have that now because those physicians those hospitals, staff Are at their peak where they're located, and or as you pointed out, maybe they're suffering from Cove it. Maybe they're in the hospital that next year because they caught Cove it or maybe their home quarantining because they have tested positive for covert. That's you've seen some hospitals cut 30% other staff because of the exposure to cove it on that front, and that causes a lengthy delay as well. So that's the thing
US COVID-19 surge triggers flurry of new response steps
"As the number of cases of Covad spikes officials are taking steps to slow down the spread. Here's our 24 7 reporter Michael Bauer with the latest morning, Michael Good morning, and those warnings are coming now from not just hospitals that are indicating that there are doctors treating a deluge of new patients that they're breaking the reaching a breaking point, leading to dire warnings about full hospitals, exhausted healthcare workers potential lockdowns that may be coming from the hospital because they just can't handle or deal with the cases that are coming in, and the White House coronavirus task force bluntly stating And its latest report that there is now aggressive, unrelenting, expanding broad community spread across the country, reaching most counties without evidence of improvement, but rather further deterioration. And a lot of people are saying dog. Yeah, that's that's you don't just end up with, you know, getting 300 days to go from 0 to 10 million covert infections and then one week to add an additional million cases. We are seeing an unprecedented spread right now happening in the country all across all 50 states, including Washington, D. C. The U. S. Virgin Islands and Guam all over the past 14 days and the average daily number of patients dying. This is how this there's a lag in all of this, Ron, you go from infections. Two hospitalizations to death numbers on the rise in the daily and number of patients dying of covert in the U. S. Has reached a level not seen since the outbreak surged during the summer, and there's a concern. That's going to get worse as well. So we're in the thick of it. We're in the midst of it right now. And you're seeing local governments Cities. You're seeing ST Louis and Chicago imposing stricter limits on gatherings in Boston, a Thanksgiving meal that would be routine any other year now may result in a 911 call or a fine, according to Boston's mayor, Marty Walsh, now no indication how he's going to enforce that per se, But he also added a clear message to college students. If you're gonna go home for Thanksgiving Don't plan on coming back to Boston this semester. You should do the rest of your learning remotely. That's where the level of concern is there for spread. And in Cleveland, there were so many new infections reported over the weekend. That city workers could not even get them all counted in time for their Monday morning briefing, So you're seeing that cities are starting to take effect. They're creating their own world within the states, which are also creating their own worlds where you're seeing places like Iowa who once dismissed mask mandates as feel good measures. They've issued limited orders this week for mass mandates, and that's the bigger picture. The states and local governments are handling what the general and federal government right now has been unable to handle. While Michael Bomber with some staggering numbers, Michael, thanks for the update. You gotta stay safe from
COVID-19 cases surge across US
"That. Let's talk about the latest on these numbers and the surge across the country as we bring in Wi OD National Court. Spawned that Michael Bauer. You could follow him on Twitter at the Bower show. Good morning, Michael. Good morning, Maddie. Yeah, I hadn't thought about the making fun of Dr Fauci part, but I definitely member the Pearl clutching that one time when we crested that 100,000 Day mark, and now we have added a million cases just over the past week alone. And if you do the math on that, just 13 days of over 100,000 new cases a day will simply add that up very easily. So that's where we are. Yesterday. We crested 133,000 new coronavirus cases. We're now up to 11/11 million cases in this country and that last million coming over the past week. This is an alarming acceleration and spread. Yeah, we're seeing I mean, look, it's the spread is everywhere. It's not you have used to be. We go. Hey, Manny, where the hot spots in this country? No, no, The country is the hot spot. Yeah, There's no question about it. You're starting to see some. Even North Dakota, whose governor, throughout this entire thing has refused to order mass mandate has now ordered a mask mandate. Ask people to wear the mask everywhere indoors and you're certain you're starting to see other restrictions. The city of Chicago, the state Of Michigan and elsewhere because it is literally spreading uncontrollably and much of the country. You got 70,000 people in U. S hospitals being treated for severe cases of covert 19 Let that sink in 70,000 people in U. S hospitals being treated. That's more than we've ever had going back even to win. This thing kicked off in March more so when we had that when we had the Sunbelt States infections That's the kind of numbers we're looking at here. The overwhelming hospitals is going on right now, right under our noses. We're trying to figure out who the next president is going to be or what the lawsuit that the president has filed is going to look like There are overwhelming hospital bed scenes. There are numbers of in some cases hospital losing 30% of their staff to Cove It like literally having them either have to quarantine or they're in ICU right now. Not doing well because they have caught Cove in 19 those of the kinds of overwhelming numbers we're looking about, and that's the key here. 38 different states reporting more than 1000 new cases on Saturday. And this surge is deadly. That's the big thing here. We haven't seen those death numbers climb just yet. But that's not the way the pacing works. Pacing goes infection than you have hospitalizations. Then you have the death numbers coming through and we're hearing Zero from the federal government. We're hearing zero from the coronavirus task force that President Trump set up. We're hearing it's been five months or more. Since President Trump has been a part of any of those meetings, which is why Michigan Washington The state of Washington, laid out a slew of new rules prohibiting indoor social gatherings and dining. We're seeing that in places like New York, Connecticut, Minnesota and New Jersey. They've all got curfews and play. New Mexico banned in person services for non essential workers. Maryland ordered restaurants to reduce indoor dining by 50% in Oregon is just saying we're cutting out restaurant dining altogether. We're putting it on pause with all of this. That's because we're not hearing anything, and the country is looking at this states are looking at this watching their numbers grown going. We've got to do something, and we're hearing absolutely nothing on the higher level right now. Yeah, yeah. I mean, it seemed like a lifetime ago that President Trump said that he declared himself a wartime president because the country was at war against this virus. I guess he got tired of because he hasn't met with his generals or anybody else. You also remember a lot of people saying this whole thing this this pandemic this corona virus thing on November 4th. It was going to be over the media wasn't going to talk about it anymore. It wasn't going to exist. Nobody was going to get sick. Turns out that wasn't true, either. Well, and there was a part of that. That seems like a pretty self fulfilling prophecy from President Trump like and on November 4. They're going to stop talking about it because all we're gonna talk about it in the election because all we're going to care about is what states did somebody win and where the lawsuits coming from, So I guess, theoretically, that's true. And while that's all happening The numbers are growing exponentially, and that the health experts are very concerned that Dr Fauci said yesterday that when you start to look at what's going on here, the fact that President elect Joe Biden's transition team is not getting any information on national security or coronavirus cases. We're gonna have a massive gap here before anything gets an opportunity. To be done even before you get to look at a possible vaccine being on the market on some level those air very large cases that could become overwhelming. We could get up to 200,000 cases a day 250. What's the number? That's going to shock Americans into thinking they should wear masks and socially distance Because so far the policy of play has been. Hey, we trust the American people to do what they need to do. If they feel that they need to be safe and wear a mask, they'll do it. How's that working out for us? That's not going particularly well right now. So until something comes from the higher ups and work its way down, and then works in unison with what states are seeing because of tests, and they're seeing a rise in positivity here, there where they can kind of shut down little areas of the state and go into quarantine. That's when we get control over it. Right now. We are so far from control that the light from control take 10,000 years to reach in, and you're starting to see where we're going backwards. I mean that you're starting to see now what is that? Wal Mart is now star. Eating the count customers coming into their stores. That's a national mandate like company. Now you're seeing other stores, Costco has changed their mass policy. Everyone has. First of all. Costco had this policy that if you had health problems, you could wear a face shield. It's been proven that there's no health problem that would preclude you from wearing a mask. To begin with. It's a good 117 days now, since World Health Organization declared this thing a pandemic. You remember that second Thursday in March? We're all of a sudden you walked into the grocery store. There's no toilet paper. There's no lice off 117 days we've been dealing with and every single expert tells us you know we can control this. If we just do the little things where the mass wash your hands stay socially mistaken 1170.2 countries that have done exactly that that have seen that taken control and in the meantime, we're in 36 states now that have mandated the wearing a face masks in public. That should and probably will grow. But what's going to have to happen between then and now? That's the big question. And what is something like if you've got 36, which is clearly the majority of states that are calling for that mask mandate? What happened if you had the whole country in the masked man it What would that theoretically do to us other than possibly slow this thing down a little bit? Keep the economy like that's it? Yeah. Michael, I was a pleasure. We will talk tomorrow morning, sir. You gotta stay safe.
Right-wing militias are gearing up for an armed response on Election Day
"News National correspondent Michael Bauer. Michael I just mentioned there. Ah, couple of states at high risk for militia. Activity today and or tonight just exactly what does that mean? I think I know what militia means. But then charity told me that the Miriam Webster Dictionary today said that hot dog was a sandwich and we know that's not true. Hot dogs. I Oh, yeah, Dogs very much. So. So, what are we talking about here? Well, look there, according to and again, this is a group. I didn't even know how to report. But the armed conflict location and event data project, along with a group called Militia Watch, They are determined and have determined the areas susceptible to right wing militia groups with the most volatile area situated in state capitals and surrounding towns. Now the reason they're bringing this up is because not only have they seen over the summertime, a development that has some of these right wing organizations. Uh, give plenty of names like the proud boys. The Patriot Prayer oath Keepers. Three percenters. Not only have they become more emboldened and also feel empowered, but they've also become more assertive with activities ranging from intervening in protests to organizing kidnapping plots. Tow target elected officials as we know from Michigan. Now, the concern here is that what we've seen from Over the better part of the last couple of months with the black lives matter, protests moving into election here and calls on all sorts of levels for protests following the election if it doesn't go on persons way, I mean, even President Trump yesterday at two different rallies, talking about how there would be violence in the streets based upon Pennsylvania, and the call that the Supreme Court made to allow Pennsylvania have three extra days to count balloting that that was going to lead to violence in the streets and pointed specifically at places like Philadelphia. Cool. It is probably no shock to anybody that Pennsylvania makes a list of the top five Cities states. I'm sorry that have concerns over militia Oregon, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin. Those air all areas that they're looking at concerns that these militia groups and other armed non state actors are going to pose a serious threat to the safety and security of American voters. Now, on a lesser level, the moderate risk Has places like North Carolina, Virginia, California, New Mexico and Texas. Now, what does that mean? I mean, these guys were like loaded up they've been doing. They're practicing their rehearsal. They've been going out and shooting to get themselves in top shape so that they could prepare for whatever goingto happen after the election. I don't know. I don't know what that necessarily means. As far as preparation goes, But the concern is they're active and they're ready. And what you're hearing from the president now talking about not just Inducing violence in the streets in this election, but pointing to that and not doing anything by the way to quell that not trying to subdue that not trying to say Hey, look, you've got armament. If you are an American citizen, and that's your vote. You can go out and use that boat today. In fact, he's kind of pointing to the fact that they're just will be violent. And then you see defense going up around the White House and then you see the boarding up of Buildings and stores in not just New York City in Manhattan, but also around Washington, D C and you start to go, man. This is not looking like the election day I was expecting to see happen, and then above and beyond that you got at least two states right there. In Texas Governor Abbott of these dispatched 1000 National Guard troops to major cities in anticipation of violence. Same thing in Massachusetts, and so The guards getting ready even though President Trump has not indicated he'll deploy them after the election, he could still do it and they're ready to go now. The
Trump's Town Hall On NBC To Overlap With Biden's On ABC
"A second presidential debate scheduled for tonight. And then the commission on Presidential Debates canceled that after the president contracted covert 19 and then set up a virtual format debate, president said, and not going to do it wasted time. So what you have tonight in the red corner is President Trump on NBC at seven o'clock and in the Blue corner, former Vice President Biden on a B C. I'm joined now by San Antonio. First news National correspondent Michael Bauer. Michael tell me, Is it just me, or is this just silly because it appears that it wouldn't be productive for either. No, You're absolutely right. This is not productive and by the way, not productive for anybody who's on the fence about their voting right now, either who I don't know, maybe wanted to see a couple of candidates who were going to try to challenge one another. Instead. We're getting another 90 minute town hall from both of them, which we've already seen. We've been there. We've done that. So it doesn't make any sense. And at the end of the day, you want to talk about a waste of time. I'm going to be watching one of these 90 minute town hall live while DVR ing the other one and immediately after the first one's done, Go and Watch the second one. That's 180 minutes. You want to talk about a waste of time? You could completely make that work together. We're in essence, looking at what the virtual debate was gonna look like anyways, just on different networks here, So it does seem like a waste of time. But as you aptly pointed out, this all comes from The definition of President Trump's positive Corona virus test that we could not clearly defined as Faras when the last negative test was before positive one, which may have allowed for an actual debate between these two D'oh than the virtual debate the president shut down then, when they canceled it, Joe Biden went over to ABC, and they gave him a town hall in the last 48 hours. NBC decided to do the same thing for President Trump at the same exact time, and that's why there's a huge backlash against NBC. Right now. They're the ones forcing this on us at the time when Joe Biden has got his town hall so you could have adjusted it by an hour earlier later, or you could have done it on a different day. But you decided with the exact same day because you wanted to make this about ratings. Absolutely And clearly and frankly, all we're going to know maybe the 1st 10 minutes, Charlie, and I think that's being optimistic. You'll have some answers for news stories in the headline like The Post Story about charisma for Joe Biden. Whether or not he gets a question on that will probably happen in the 1st 10 minutes. Trump on whether or not they kept secrets from the American public in regards to Cove it while warning donors over the Republican side, the things we're going to get bad that might be asked in the 1st 10 minutes outside of that, it's going to be everything we already know from a platform standpoints. There's nothing new to see there. And at the end of this, if this comes down to who had the higher ratings, that's who we should look at his winning this particular round of the presidential candidacy. That will be so 2020 for people who don't know the moderates. Savannah Guthrie, the moderator in Miami for Trump, George Stephanopoulos, the moderator in Philadelphia. For Biden. Town Halls are the questions Don't come from the moderator. Correct. They come from the audience. Yeah, you might remember about a month ago, President Trump had one while he was in Philadelphia with George Stephanopoulos. And you have people that were there in the hall that we're at least at least told everybody that they were independent voters who hadn't made a decision on who they were voting for. Yet Yet at that time, President Trump still managed to interrupt those people who are asking the questions on the people who left that hole so that they left feeling that President Trump I had both its light to them on a couple of different occasions, so it didn't necessarily go well for him. He has a great history with the town hall format himself. It will be interesting to see how that plays out here. But you're right. This is all whether or not the questions are theirs themselves. That they've written up or whether it was handed to them on the way up to the microphone is unclear, but it will be asked by the people of the audience. Well, now that we know the sacrifice that you're making, Michael the fact that you're going to watch one DVR the other one haven't decided which one you're going to watch. In which one you're gonna DVR. It will be a coin toss three shots of tequila that I'm looking at that tonight. Charlie

"Degrees and in the low sixties, right through the weekend, right now, it is 60 degrees. Investigation into Joe Biden, son Hunter starting to heat up once again on Capitol Hill are 24 7. Correspondent Michael Bauer joins us now with to take a peek of what kind of an impact this could have on the election. If any, these tastes what it takes to well. The concern, of course, is that it could have a great deal of an impact, and that's being concern led by intelligence agencies, as well as some Members of Congress who are concerned that the entire investigation that's happening in regards to Joe Biden and his son Hunter, Biden, and any involvement that they have with a Ukrainian gas company called Charisma may have a negative effect here on Joe Biden's candidacy heading into the election in November. This is an investigation being led by Senate Republicans in the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs, which is chaired by Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin. And according to what we're hearing, it's looking at Joe Biden's dealings with Crane when he was vice president, and it may be nearing the end of that report. We're hearing from Senator Johnson Easy mentioned earlier this week that he would be ready to give some sort of a damning report in the next week's period of time, which would indicate early going into next week on some level And this probe, according to the New York Post was getting some information leaked to them seems to show some secret service travel records between 2009 and 20 Fortin. Where Hunter Biden Joe Biden, son. About 411 trips across 29 countries. Now, some of those may have been for leisure. Some may have been for volunteer work, but there are at least a few of them that appear to be connected to deal that he or his associates.

"Michael Bauer is here. Michael. What happens to this country? If we don't have a clear winner on November will buy advice. Be patient. Because I think we're going to be in a situation where the account where we're watching, usually on election night situation, and we get the coverage from the whatever organization you're watching. That's largely a predictive mode. Now. Those predictions from the networks have usually worked out with what the actual winner is on Election night. But the election process itself is set up for officially tabulating one month after the election, and I think we're going to use every last second every drop of that time. To get together our totals in total the amount of votes we have from people who are voting overseas in the military to people in this country. If their ballot is dated on election day, it still counts at every vote should count in this country. So I think there's going to be a timeframe now. Anything further than that we know Congress has sworn in on January 3rd. They meet in a joint session three days later to count those votes for an election, so that supposed to be the first part of it there. If there's a problem with the electoral vote, College Electoral College vote, or if there is an issue with getting a tabulation ready to go, then the Constitution has our aunts are ready to go, which is that the house will choose the president with each state, not each member. Casting a single vote in the Senate would choose the vice president under the Constitution. Those four year terms of president and vice president end on January 20th so they haven't figured anything out between the 3rd and 20 it on some level. Congress then has to kick into action and begin the Presidential Succession Act, which means Nancy Pelosi would become the president. And then that would be followed by president pro tempore of the Senate. Charles Grassley. On some level depending on how things go, then you'd have to go through members of the Cabinet from there. That's how this looks so hopefully we won't get to that point and hopefully there will be a winner decided by the time New Congress kicks in in January. But at the end of the day, I don't expect me personally, I do not expect to have an answer on election night or even the next day. I expect it's going to be a couple of weeks before we get an answer. Brilliant. Thank you. That's Michael Bauer on NewsRadio, 6 10 w TVs SPORTS..

"These radio 1000 Katie, Okay, the Republican National Convention wrapped up last night. Michael Bauer joining us because he was watching it, Michael, I didn't watch that much and what I did. He wasn't Ah, lot of surprises. But ah, lot of pageantry. Yeah, I would. I would have to say that the most surprising thing may have been the pageantry may have acted that you had 1500 people there at the White House on the South Lawn, and we know a number of people, including some health officials. Are very concerned because reports this morning say not many, if any, were tested for Corona virus before getting to the lawn. Not many war mask flat tonight while the president was speaking. On that was kind of concerning as well. But outside of that the eye was spectacularly shocked. The fireworks show was as good as it was, and that I was able to stay up for it if I thought for sure. After 70 minutes of President Trump's speaking at a fairly slow pace, I think somebody may have slowed down the Teleprompter guy, but a t end of the day there. I think I was feeling pretty tired. I was I was ready to go to bed, stayed up for the whole thing. And at the end of it, I mean, look, we know where the president has landed here and what I mean by that is we know that this is going to be about the law and order presidency. We know that that's what he is making the biggest push, saying that Democrats are unable to do it or unwilling to do it. And some of the cities and states that they are governing and that this is where he wants to be elected to be able to take care of it. Now I found out to be an interesting place for the president elect. I felt he could have done it on the economy, which certainly would have been a much bigger question between he and President Trump as to who you want tohave. In charge O Biden or president trump of your money going forward, But they decided to land on this portion of the law and order. And with that, I think it was. I mean, you're already starting to see it last night on social media, and you're seeing it again today Already, the Democrats are pushing hard on the well, look, you said the same thing Back in 2016. You were going to clean up the streets. You are going to stop the violence and Here. We are 3.5 years later, and that's not happening, And now you're asking for another four years to do something that you said would have been so easy and are continuing to say it's so easy to Dio don't know why you need that, so that's the direction they're going to go on this and I think that's going to lead us between that. Whatever happens in the upcoming black lives matter protest meeting outside of Kenosha or including Kenosha. On some level that's going to lead us up to the first presidential debate, which is going to happen is a little more than four weeks away from today on at least a this point. There's no plan to have one earlier. We know President Trump is pushing for earlier debate. He'd like to get one in before you have the first mail in ballots. Recorded, so it's unclear as to whether that's gonna happen is if you are asking Nancy Pelosi, she think there's any reason to debate President Trump period and she's put it let any credibility to his lies out there. But I think the American public desperately want to see a mano a mano Joe by President Trump debate at least one. I think Nancy Pelosi is very wrong about that. And I also think that that she's trying to cover up for they don't want to Joe in a situation where he's ad living, because that's when he gets into trouble..
US entering 'different' phase of coronavirus outbreak
"Surpassed Britain as the country with the third highest Corona virus death toll on Friday. What happened across the United States we bring in Santonio, first news national correspondent Michael Bauer. So what did happen in the United States? We know that Dr Deborah Berke, the position overseeing the White House coronavirus response says. We entered a new phase here in this country, meaning that what we're looking at as Faras the pandemic goes is much different now than it was in March in April. That she says, is extraordinarily widespread that there because it was his belief that rural urban areas maybe someplace states and cities. Work socially distant enough from the rest of the country. This remote distance is going to keep us safe, not going to be an issue, she says. That's not happening anymore. We're in a place now where there is no corner of the country. That's safe enough from everything. So while we've been looking at Texas and Florida in Arizona and California for some time now, the Sunbelt states you're looking at over the past week period of time, the largest surge of infections happening in Alaska, Hawaii, Missouri, Montana and Oklahoma. So sort of all over the place. Some of those places way more distant from the rest of the country than others. And this is a clear indication that we're in a different level in a different phase right now, what's happening in this country. Now with that? Experts are also saying, Let's not forget we're about to possibly go back to school. We know that some colleges are going to be returning, and there's a concern that we major outbreaks in college towns, but also above and beyond that policy lab is this one group of Children's Hospital in Philadelphia that have been kind of showing models and pulling together models. They're looking at one right now that says As far as a likely spread over the next four weeks. Like who could be the next Texas who could be the next Florida? They're checking out some ominous trends that includes some really, really big cities like Baltimore in Chicago in Detroit, Philadelphia, ST Louis and Washington, Boston and New York. They're saying that they're keeping a close eye on those cities over the next four weeks because it looks like Some of these cases, air headed back those directions. Michael, are we getting a clear picture of exactly how many kids have tested positive for covert 19? It's what we're getting is because a lot of schools still haven't officially returned right. But we do know that some schools have gone back into session. And we know that at least in places like Indiana at one school district, where two kids tested positive and a teacher tested positive as well. They immediately day one shut down those squids at school district and went back to the At home learning process and doing things from a remote basis, and you're seeing those exact came some kind of situations all across the country. You're seeing them in Kentucky, you're seeing them and Utah. You're seeing them. Ah, hole across the country where kids are kind of starting to come back and then boom. There's this sort of exposure to on element of covert 19 in the classroom. My brother Isa teacher in Northern California he teaches high school students, and they just had two of their senior students test positive for covert 19 1 senior at another school in their district. And the school just for decided to shut things down until October. So my brother will be teaching from his classroom, But just on the computer to people who will be learning at home. So are we working on the honor system here? Our parents required by law to report if their child test positive. Uh, that's a great question. I don't know that they're required. I also don't know who's hiding that right now. I'm thinking that that's a good idea. I think you know the reality of the situation is school districts are asking and trying to figure out what it is that parents want to do and what the schools want to do from that point on there making decisions based upon that, But the minute you start talking about bringing a kid in who might be infected. And even though the symptoms aren't nearly as strong and kids or at least that's what the reports have been throughout what you've seen for adults and older people, they can still spread it, so they're still going to school. They can still pick it up and bring it home. And then they can spread it that way. So if you were looking to stop the spread period, it would seem likely the things they do. There is not put kids into a situation where it was worse back in March, but worse than where was back in March and trying to put them in and think that this is going to stop the spread. Meanwhile,
Judge rejects Ohio request to postpone March 17 primary until June
"Michael Michael Bauer Bauer on on board board our our NBC NBC national national correspondent correspondent and and got got the the voting that's taking place in well it was supposed to be Michael in for state turning today heroes on a Florida Illinois and Ohio but I understand Ohio's decided to wait awhile yeah I voters at least at this point will not be voting today the Ohio department of health issued an order last night to postpone the primary election citing the corona virus pandemic along with other concerns from the governor Mike DeWine there was a pitch made to a judge yesterday in order to shut this thing down because it was concerned of a corona virus that judge judge Richard fry declined the request saying that the postpone the vote would set a terrible precedent he was also indicating that with such short notice twelve hours at that time to go before the election that it was not in the order the order of a judge to make a decision like this in the diving should be left up to the legislature to cast their votes so I don't mind saying that they are going to have that boat gestures into because a day ago his secretary of state as well as the secretary of state's from the three other states that are also up for primaries today all sent out a letter saying we're going to have our election that we're doing everything we can to make sure that everything will be as healthy and clean and sanitized in order to post guidance from local health officials at voting locations we're all good to go and for some reason Ohio decided to back out of it meanwhile the other states right there from your great state of Florida and Arizona and Illinois are all moving forward at this point in time with their voting today for the primary and it looks as though if you're just kind of looking at some of the polling you're taking a look at Florida Biden is up by thirty eight points over us according to real clear politics up by thirty points over Bernie Sanders in Arizona between seventeen and twenty point over Bernie Sanders in Illinois by between twenty one and thirty eight point over Bernie Sanders whether or not this corona viruses slows down the what had been at least apparently clear cut a record number of people who are coming to the polls we get to see and does this slow down the show meant as they've been putting this is a victory for Bernie Sanders on some lights they give your slowing everything down from Joe Biden's side maybe this means that Bernie Sanders would have a chance with all this sort of pulls together again at least for Ohio after June second

"M. Tampa Bay and Michael Bauer joins us right now our N. B. C. news radio correspondent and we will take a break here and talking about the coronavirus as the Democrats held their first debate between the last two candidates last night then Michael did you feel that there was a clear winner in that I feel like there there were some clear winners in that I would also say that I think coronavirus invaded the entirety of that debate last night not just because the podiums were spaced unusually far apart for social distancing not just because the two candidates didn't shake hands but instead bumped elbows awkwardly like two old white guys you'd expect and then you add that no audience at also the weirdly weird dynamic last night for the debate lot of people on social media seem to like it seem to appreciate the concept of not having an audience there we did end up getting up fairly revealing night between the two of them one on one format which made for much more interesting topics and much more subdued portion of what was happening on the stage but I think that it wasn't a perfect night for Joe Biden but he's got to be walking away from this feeling pretty happy on how things went because as the front runner and your Joe Biden who's not only leading in the delegate count but also appears to be leading by most states in tomorrow's portion of the primary by double digits you needed Bernie Sanders have a big night something dramatic something to try to turn this around and that did not happen for Bernie Sanders last night so while you did have Sanders attacking Biden on his voting history and even at one point in time had by defending his record on social security which he may have actually lied about a little bit last night you're starting to see this the get down to the brass tacks between the two and frankly this might be and what appeared to be the last debate that Bernie Sanders will be apart of depending on how things go tomorrow in the four states in the primary yeah you really you really think that Bernie really need to take the headline last night but I think Biden took the headline with basically committing his vice president as a woman yeah and even then when they followed up with a question of Bernie Sanders he still sort of had very single you I'm I'm kind of leaning that way but not really committing to anything whereas Joe Biden moments earlier had completely committed to that I sort of stole the show even to the point where Dana bash would ask the question because the better cameras not only was she popped arise over like wow that's a really big news that the headline right there and I think that's a part of the case you know again if you were and I don't know that job I was looking to steal anything away from Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden is a leader in the clubhouse but at the end of the day he did exactly that and and everything that seemingly came from Bernie Sanders last night was all the same kind of stuff we've heard before so there wasn't anything new there wasn't anything necessarily ground breaking everything was kind of tainted by this corona virus and everything you know became that topic or something coming back to that topic almost made any other topic look like a side show but for the most part I think it was the same old song and dance from Bernie Sanders and you saw a Joe Biden who really seemed on the ball last night yeah I I I was I mean I would have bet my house that he was going to pick a woman and it is it's clear it'll be a woman of color and a comma Harris is going to be the one at one point it could have been Hillary but she's pretty much out of it now with the investigations are male and everything under way the cheese too much flawed to be a candidate and I know some are suggesting that trump might drop Penson pick up well somebody woman to run with him in order to keep things even but I don't know if that'll happen yeah I do think that you know them this is without having any female on the stage at this point in time in the the primary for the democratic ticket I think it's important that that they make it clear cut distinction that they and that's what Joe Biden said last night that he feels that there are many women who are right for the picking when it comes to the president of this country and so he would go that direction absolutely as it came to a vice presidential candidate with no questions whatsoever and I think that's probably the biggest and boldest statement we've seen at this point yeah man Bernie in one of the the vice presidential candidate like it at all I don't think so but Michael thanks for joining us on A.

Can Biden Recover in South Carolina?
"Bay and Michael Bauer on board here in our NBC news reporter here and we've got the big primary coming up Saturday tomorrow Michael and they're saying this is do or die for Joe Biden yeah and then that's pretty much the case right now as it stands if you're looking at the polling in South Carolina Joe Biden seems to be you know on average according to real clear politics about twelve point six points ahead of Bernie Sanders in South Carolina some polls have amid you know little is four percent start four points to lead some as high as twenty points in the lead and it needs to be a big turnout for Joe Biden if he's expecting to make a run here at super Tuesday and and keep this contest candidates are gonna be competing this is not a winner take all state when it comes to the democratic primary you're competing for fifty four pledged delegates and that'll be allocated proportionately based upon how you perform so this is a situation where Joe Biden really needs an overwhelming performance in order to keep anybody not named Bernie Sanders alive in this kind of a race the word is that the Democrats the mainstream Democrats are ready to do anything they can to stop Bernie from getting the nomination because they're concerned that they might even lose the house if this guy wins the nomination and they're pretty much concerned and he and got a chance to beat trump N. so they're ready to stop him they're talking about the super delegates who can vote however they want to apparently and they're saying that the super delegates for about to mass and then go to somebody else and all agree on one candidate yeah that that definitely has the plans for that have been you know gone overlooked over it is all very feasible and possible you know Bernie Sanders of course is wouldn't want that to happen and and we've all seen in the past certainly twenty sixteen where Bernie Sanders kinda got a raw deal in regards to everything the DNC was after when they've you know pushed forward Hillary Clinton in that position so it's not to say that something like that couldn't happen again I would certainly point out to the DNC that I think it's possible to Bernie Sanders has shifted the entirety of the Democratic Party based upon what he did in twenty sixteen and and how his beliefs and then what he used for his campaign has kind of taken it the the Democratic Party further left than they have as an entire party not just a big stream portions of it so there are parts of what you're looking at here Bernie Sanders and specifically of Bernie Sanders walks away with a win in South Carolina it's going to be time for Joe Biden the pulled up it's it's it's likely that Sanders would then end up with just slightly more than half of the pledged delegates after super Tuesday there would be no clear alternative to him and and Biden's campaign would be devastated by South Carolina probably dropping out so that's what could happen and that's what's on the line for what goes down on Saturday right now get a twelve point lead in most of the average for most polls for for Joe Biden but Bernie Sanders if you were able to bounce back from that could make this his rate and put an entirely huge spotlight on this race that he is right now in the lead with nobody out there to challenge him what about the other wasn't what about the other Democrats that are on there you know that are on the ticket here with Elizabeth Warren someone like her where she doesn't look like she's performing very well in the polls but she could potentially be a vice presidential candidate when or when the time comes our put candidates like that that are so far behind but still in the race how how does this next week look for them all the other part of it too that you have to look at is while somebody like Elizabeth Warren isn't particularly polling well in South Carolina on a national poll she is number two behind Bernie Sanders and then you usually got Joe Biden in third place there so that could mean something bigger comes super Tuesday but again since you've got a short turnaround between South Carolina and super Tuesday so like you can really get out there and do a whole lot of stomping you just got a matter of days are this is a situation where Elizabeth Warren could still show up well in in polls and added certainly voting for super Tuesday and people like Amy Klobuchar people like people to judge I think if they don't show up well in South Carolina if they don't show up well on super Tuesday they're going to have to think twice about what it is they're doing there people like Bloomberg's dire have bottomless pockets so they can keep paying as long as they want to stay in this and pretend that there's somebody who can actually compete on some level until they realize that they are and then they're going to have to just kind of give you the support somebody or walk away send their money elsewhere but that's the way this is breaking down right out lease from all appearances again a strong showing from Biden makes this a challenge and certainly puts us into a place where super Tuesday could mean more and become a tighter race well that's going to be the big day this coming super Tuesday fourteen different states and forty percent of the voters will make their wishes known and then Michael we will talk to you on Monday the other guys have a

"Tampa Bay in Michael Bauer on board our NBC news national correspondent here and the impeachment is under way here now and what's your take on what happened yesterday Michael well yesterday kind of set the groundwork for what I think we're going to see in the coming days here and and the twelve hour session that happened yesterday was of a constant battle it was to you as soon as they were in this is by the way just setting up the groundwork in the rules for that would be in play for the remaining part of the set a trial so every time one it ma'am it was put out by Democrats and then debated a hotly and then shut down by Republicans another one popped up get a total of eleven different amendments that were brought forward by Chuck Schumer yesterday all of which were shot down all the one which did get a Susan Collins Republican vote on it all of them were shot down at the end of the day technically we're moving to put witnesses and documents discussed at a later time they got tabled so will be a discussion is going to happen later on in the trial just not going to guarantee anything for democratic house leaders who were coming over the managers to try to get some of the paperwork and the guests that they were hoping to have to be able to talk in front of this entire trial but that said it we didn't come about as we go she Asians because as this began we knew going into these rules Mitch McConnell initially put together a plan that would involve ace similar to the Clinton impeachment twenty four hours for each side to make their case but instead of over four days he was going to allow for it to happen only over two days will that change last minute before with the entirety of the trial started or did the hearing started yesterday he changed that to the span of three days do some Republicans that he'd been talking with the war necessarily in support of his ideas needed every Republican to make sure that things would pass yesterday so he changed it to the span of three days instead of two it's been expanded now which means we might have might do I use that term very gingerly here might have less time spent in these arguments although yesterday's twelve hour session leads me to believe that at eight hour session could very easily Roland ten or twelve hours in the Democrats who actually think that he can be removed from office I don't listen I I think it's it's it's equal sides on this one when it comes to the the reality that Jack both both the Democrats feel that they both can remove him and should remove him from office but will fascinate remove him I don't think that they feel that way so they're just trying to make their case they're trying to make a case that if they are able to get Mick Mulvaney or John Bolton in to testify on some level they will say something that will cause the two thirds majority in the Senate to withdraw president from from his office I I don't know that's going to happen and I'm technically the ground work that's being said Orton and and will be set today from the Republican side is even if all of that stuff were true is it something that is an impeachable offense and that's what they're going to have to answer to I will bet your house it is not going to happen you're not going to tell you does it over here with the only forty seven Democrats in the Senate you're not gonna get sixty seven to vote to remove the guy is just a big huge waste of time Michael I'm living on the streets because of Jackie's gambled away everything I take it every every show members house and put it up for bid that's that's great I like that idea he's living in and luxury so one of course one o'clock today is when everything picks up over under twelve hours today I I I I did just based upon yesterday I've got to go with the gut instinct that says over to be able to limit this to eight hours that's that's the time frame the Mitch McConnell's opened up in regards his agreement yesterday I'd like to see that Dick at eight hours also you got to throw in the fact that they're gonna have breaks for things I mean if you got caught that yesterday they were done social media this morning there's been a cartoon draw you know one of the the New York times in your post writers drew up this your time sketch artist had a picture of Jim rich from Idaho had slept for about half an hour or so yesterday with his head in his hands there in the trial yes even though like five thirty at night he was falling asleep so I suspect that if we start to hit that eight to ten hour mark you have a lot more sweeping senators and you won't be able to tell the difference anymore all you actually get more done you can buy your anyone Michael thanks for joining us we'll talk to you tomorrow the other guys have a great day Michael by our NBC news national correspondent here and it's five twenty eight on A.

"michael bauer" Discussed on WHAS 840 AM
"Test takers one Michael Bauer from NBC news radio our Mike let's start with the the idea that both sides are claiming that either Nancy Pelosi is making a huge mistake by not sitting over the articles of impeachment because she does have a great case or what once ideas the other side is saying it's a brilliant stroking now because it leaves both president trump and the Republicans twisting in the wind and tell us of the get settled here with those of the Senate and and how they're gonna go about taking on the articles of impeachment should they ever arrive yeah this is this is this is I think exactly what Nancy Pelosi was looking to do while holding off on the articles of impeachment heading up on Christmas vacation is exactly that kind of a conversation exactly see how things would fall together and hoping that there would be some pressure put on its McConnell that there would be almost a forcing if you will of a meeting between McConnell and Chuck Schumer to talk about what would happen in the Senate that's what she's looking for the end of the day is what is going to happen in the Senate what kind of a trial will be a fair trial so that's why at least all indications are initially that's why she's holding back on turning over these articles of impeachment and let's face it since that time we've seen the release of email detailing a White House withholding military aid from Ukraine we've seen it see GOP senator speaking out against which means we're carnal Mitch McConnell and whether or not he's partisan as it comes to this trial in the Senate concerns about that portion of things and you seem president trump frankly go on some tweet hate against Nancy Pelosi for the better part of the last couple of days all of which seemingly comes down to where is my acquittal in my exoneration going and why are we there yet although there are some reports coming out of the White House that seem to indicate that the president again wants to go back and has been flip flopping on you do you want to light the trial or short trial in the Senate he seems now to be going back to the lengthy trial for the sole purpose of trying to embarrass Democrats while the trial is going on so I think all of that is putting a little bit of pressure Mitch McConnell to to have a discussion here to to to really come up with what's in the lines I mean it throws the ball completely McConnell's court and this is the situation one Antipolis knows she can't wait forever she can't hold off on this forever the only other thing she could do and you're seeing some Democrats speculate does is that she could do what would be the equivalent of a pocket veto it either which kind of putting the motion aside until they just don't deal with it anymore in time runs out on dealing with it and in essence saying look here in the house we determined that the president has been impeached and we know that over in the Senate there's no point in sending anything over because the Majority Leader has made it clear he has no interest in a fair trial so we we're just gonna let it stand at the houses in peace the president were to move forward from there and if she does move in that direction it may certainly question any constitutionality of her impeachment but it would also get back to the element of let's get into twenty twenty let's talk about health care let's put the pressure on president trump to get himself reelected here well we've all been talking about concerns about what it's like for him to be a leader in this country well I mean we know that impeachments and and I think that McConnell is right about this that that they're not been on bipartisan even Adam Schiff is admitted to the added to it points in time to **** Pelosi was not sure about going into the impeachment simply because she wanted if it would be a stain on the Democrat so I'm not quite sure it's easy in a I I see where you're coming from we've heard this story of first of all it we should have this bi partisan look in view of things the Democrats didn't make it bipartisan when Republicans want to bring what they said order testimony to witnesses and now certainly McConnell on the roof and the Republicans are making it non or bi partisan by not allowing the you know save take for example boulder anybody else up here before I would point out again once again the fact in this is you what you're gonna see from Democrats that they didn't have a trial in the house there was no trial and houses was investigation this was back getting the trial happening in the Senate and the when each of the one hundred senators are supposed to be swearing in as impartial jurors that's where you don't generally have not just the it forget the part where you say or don't say that you are impartial or non impartial when you're working with the White House in regards to how the trial will be set up since you're working with the person that's accused whatever the the the the situation is here I worked with them closely and that seems to be were a big portions comes into play you could recuse yourself and we've seen that happen.
Billionaire Michael Bloomberg enters 2020 presidential race
"Michael Bloomberg the billionaire former New York City mayor former Republican officially has now entered the presidential race we're joined by national correspondent Michael Bauer Mike how you doing I'm doing well are you that this morning very good so Bloomberg I mean that Sir the E. we I don't know if we needed another democratic candidate but he obviously was not was not impressed with the current field you're looking at somebody in Bloomberg who has experience going face to face with Donald Trump somebody who has the ability clearly to get under the skin of Donald Trump somebody who has numerous times question the business accurate of Donald Trump and according to him Michael Bloomberg he has way more money than Donald Trump does I think those are all things that equal up to president trump sort of having to answer key to Michael Bloomberg on some level this is been happening for decades in New York of course I don't know what that translates to get him on to a debate stage against president trump unclear if that's the case is again a candidacy for the democratic party certainly seems in big question right now another seventy year old white guy getting on to the stage for Democrats I think they've had their share of that on stage at this point I think are you a good majority of younger democratic voters are looking for a younger candidates not necessarily somebody was seventy seven years old and is a big supporter of Wall Street business so I think there are some things there that don't working Bloomberg favor on the other side of that great name recognition I mean maybe even more so than anybody else on that stage and even at this point I don't what we're supposed to be trimming down the democratic field and and starting to get people to move off of that so we get a better understanding of who the Democrats may be interested in looking at I think you're looking at in Michael Bloomberg at least in some of the polling we saw two weeks ago when there was a rumor that he may be getting back into it you had it you go CBS poll the went to eighteen key primary states and without a quarter of likely democratic primary voters have an unfavorable view of him and that's much higher than any of the other candidates that are out there right now so because of that Republican Democrat flip flopping on whatever the wind blows that's what he's going to be that seemingly had a lot of questions going for democratic voters yeah I mean that was one of the issues if he's got the criticism of the feel of Canada right now it's been you know a Joe Biden's too old Bernie Sanders is to will Joe Biden is the same age as Michael Bloomberg and then are the rest of the country tired of new Yorkers I mean this battle in the city it fine for New York here we get it but does the rest of the country care yeah one I think you being a little bit of that play out in like the democratic debates now Joe Biden who's been attacked by some Democrats on stage hasn't necessarily given the answers of democratic voters are looking for been able to give those kind of answers maybe they're figuring out me he's losing a little bit he's to all I think Michael Bloomberg ever have a better response to some of those attacks and certainly ones would come forward from president trump on some level but you're right at the end of the day it's another seventy seven year old white guy that entering this race here and I don't know I mean I think there's a lot to be said for people like that the Buddha judges who are out there that the you're starting to see a strong support swell up for and when you got Michael Bloomberg having to apologize for stop and frisk policy in New York City even though that's certainly did help clean up the city on a grander scale on the bigger nationwide scale I think that there are bigger elements for democratic voters you have to answer to because of that policy and then that are you able to say well we can do something like that but I'll have to alter here I don't know if that changes in the voters minds either you know is is dumb as it is really even though I thought it was a ridiculous policy I think a lot of people just know him as the the billionaire big soda guy trying to take you know the nanny state guy that's going to be somewhere he's he's got some businesses right you've got Pete since he left office and it's gone back into sort of the private sector if you will he's got some things that you can fighting you know tobacco usage in peak usage since two thousand seven he somebody who has is every town gun safety which he held back in twenty fourteen to the battle over gun legislation and you've got the beyond carbon which is a company founded earlier this year to advocate for energy reforms all those seem to fit right into the Democratic Party you know but where's he been in that and if you can take corporate money for any of that because that could throw off democratic voters ninety seven thirty one million of his own dollars on a TV ad blitz so we'll see I'll gonna say Bridgette seems to making a little move and surprisingly Biden's pole number still seem to be fairly strong don't think they are they're not they're not great and he does seem to be slipping he's kind of you know falling back and forth depending on where you're looking on the top forty kind of moving around in there but I think certainly strong enough now here's the other thing Bloomberg going in he's kind of picking up in about four percent right now which is still higher than some of the candidates that would be on that stage is still higher than available rocker some of the others so he's not necessarily walking in at the lowest part he possibly could but that also doesn't mean that it's going to continue that way the numbers may drop off course nine Michael Bauer thanks

"Hour Michael Bauer on the white one Michael what started as a kind of vague whistle blower complaint last week is a little sharper and focus today the president talking to the president of the U. carrying trying to dig up some dirt on Joe Biden what more do we know about the story this morning well we know the person is admitted to that we also know that now that the president has admitted that he had the conversation with the Ukraine president that Nancy Pelosi in Adam ship other Democrats are all ramping up their calls for the possibility of getting closer to impeachment they're also demanding that the Intel chief turn over the whistle blower complaint with the trump administration has refused to do thus far by Thursday so they're looking at Thursday is being the deadline to turn that is sort of that do it or else but we don't know what the or else part is other than maybe moving forward on impeachment hearings our investigation on some formal impeachment hearings are mastication on some level we do know that what is in question right now and again we don't know the details until we get a chance to see the whistleblower complaint but what seems to be clearer as far as the question goes is to going back to July when president trump had a conversation with the leader from Ukraine duly elected leader from the new crane and that on some level of military aid package that was supposed to have gone to the Ukraine and have been approved by Congress was being delayed at the time of the phone call now it's unclear as to why or who caused that delay to happen but it's in in at least this point basic investigational stages to find that the president was delaying that in order to have the new leader take a look at Joe Biden's background and and possibly even dig up some dirt on his election did so that a lot of questions here I think you know the element of whether or not the Congress will get an opportunity to see the whistleblower complaint will be huge also present from says that there are transcripts from the call but he's also delaying the release he knows if you're going to do it all Mike Pompeii says there's no need to release from the president says he needs to be careful and releasing those trans. so are clearly I guess nothing but on clarity there when it comes to whether or not we'll see the transcript yes so I mean is there always someone listening to what the president says on the phone that's interesting part it's tough to say they're generally as kind of a rule there somebody paying attention somewhere at some point and we also know that in the past the president is kind of called into that when we started getting reports late or I guess was early last year that the president was upset with the way some of these talks from people that were leaking information out about this phone call so whether beat of let me put or others we're going he kind of limited that element of having people in the room being able to pay attention well for him to say there's transcripts here indicates that somebody was there paying attention somebody was listening in on some level unless of course this is all just a big fit and that's not the case but he said there transcript you just have to be careful getting them out yeah well I mean if it was a big do you think the a the present would know who was listening and so he knew who the whistle blower was he's a well they know what was going on so that's why maybe I need to come clean on. yeah and and there are indications of the whistleblower could've been somebody that didn't hear about this directly but may have heard about this second third fourth party on some level again as soon as I think people can get a hold of that was a blower complaint the I. G. with the one who said that it needed to be investigated sooner rather than later that there was some emergency element to it but if this was somebody who heard it second third fourth party would seem to me died you wouldn't work for that kind of an emergency pedal to the metal kind of an element to it until you actually see it it'll be tough to tell that just seems like it's kind of hearsay as to how many different party will kind of a telephone line game we're talking about here great stuff Mike we always appreciate the updates much that's our Michael Bauer on newsradio six.
Trump says gun-control legislation is moving ‘very slowly’
"H. as well there is work in Washington DC board and expanded background checks and it's being done by the US Attorney General William Barr at least they can purchase to some while Republicans and others to expand background checks what's the latest Michael Bauer worse is going. that's going to be the questioner Tony at the end of the day all the talk and discussion is happening on Capitol Hill the visit from William Barr talking all the Republican senators and representatives the is it going to go any place because after summer mass shootings it seems as though the White House and Congress are kind of quietly working on a plan to require background checks for all commercial firearm sales implied the big thing that's holding everybody off his understanding exactly what it is president trump wants what will he throw his weight behind what kind of a gun control package and no one at this point seems to know what you'll support so bill Barr was out of the hill this week talking to members about gun control and and Lindsey Graham said they're just kind of talking right now we're trying out some new ideas on expected background checks were tossing ideas around other having all kind of discussions but again the one concern because everybody just seems to stop short Republicans in the Senate are treading cautiously over this concept the background checks because they just don't know if the president because supported and under Barr's proposal that he's been pitching it would have background checks that would be extended to include all commercial sales including gun shows the check would also be conducted to a federal firearm license or new we create a class of licence transfer agents work sellers could keep their own records for sale though they could also allow the federal firearm license to store them if they wish to do that and then there would be an element of the red flag rules there were if if the if you were having you had a firearm and on a legal level they determine that you were a threat they could take the firearm away from you so these are all things that are being talked about and discuss these are all things that senators like Lindsey Graham or or John Cornyn John Kennedy Doug Collins are all having discussions about but that's kind of where it stops because until they get any idea and right now they feel they have no idea what the president would support until they get some sort of an idea they feel like they can't really work on putting pen to paper getting anything done they produce Republican George has a question he had was so what happens if another administration comes in and wanna make sure there are safeguards against that because there's only one step between a registry and confiscation I mean. that would be a big leap but you know there are some people that believe that we could happened. it should emit safety and their. I'm sorry you said what Michael that sounds like it would be a legitimate safety to debate the you would want to place into some sort of legislation that you want to have some kind of element of understanding the you couldn't just come in and confiscate when need be the second man was still with the
Dozens were trapped below deck in California boat fire
"Over the weekend a massive both fire of the cell a southern California coast early yesterday old it yesterday I'm skinny skews me and the death toll rising joining us to talk about this story ABC news radio's Michael Bauer Michael what happened yeah the fear is right now that none of the passengers on board survived you're looking at thirty nine people according to the Coast Guard that were on board this vessel twenty five bodies have been found that one of the five that were the crew that got out safely so we're looking at nine people at this point that are missing in they will go into recovery mode coming up here this morning to try to see if they can recover those bodies so we know that the fire on the vessel started in the early hours yesterday while the boat was anchored off Santa Cruz island which is about ninety miles west of Los Angeles a Coast Guard you play there they got some made a call around three thirty in the morning indicating that the boat was engulfed in flames at that point now some suggestions from people that have been aboard this very **** before who has a a fantastic record of not just being a ship that's well maintained and top working order of it that the the companies that but that that sends these boats out on diving excursions has been a top notch company as well one of the big concerns was that this boat the way that it's set up the lay out for the blueprint if you will as may be led to this particular disaster where you've got the people who were on the crew on the upper part of the deck may have been sleeping that then you would have the galley the kitchen area in between and then down below is where the passengers would have been sleeping now the only way to get out from down below is to take a small staircase up through the galley and you have to get out of the galley through the main cabin to get outside so if there was a fire in the galley if there was a fire anywhere near that stair case it would have prevented them from having access to get out with one exit only in that may have been what we're looking at here we don't know what caused the fire yet and that's still something that they're looking into but if there were a fire in the galley in the kitchen area there. it would have prevented anybody from getting out from the lower deck so I understand the people down below were sleeping at the time what was that about yeah three thirty one is a weekend's trip to this is the final day of a weekend diving excursion that was going on but the people who pay for a three day event for them to be able to go out and go do some diving so three thirty in the morning that leads to the belief is at this point everybody was down below getting the rest in before getting up for their final day of diving in this particular island the Santa Cruz island there so they would've been sleeping at this point and depending on where this fire may have come in the place they may not have been able to get out or there could have been a situation where smoke from the fire may have caused some smoke inhalation while they were sleeping on some level so there are on board this there are these up what they call like suppressors fire suppresses they've got some of the the doors that are are closed did not allow fire into the next room or next a passageway in any element but that's usually for the engine room area that facility made out of had these kinds of suppressive elements involved in the galley so a lot of questions will come into play here and and that they're going forward it may be something the maritime law is going to have to further investigate as well the CDC also with the building of some new federal regulations come out for access to to escape these kinds of grabbing a secondary or tertiary exit plan on some level you think that would be something will have to be addressed here good talk with Michael imports them the better really terrible story of the weekend Michael Bauer Johnny's NBC
El Paso shooting is being treated as a case of 'domestic terrorism'
"So as investigations both into el Paso Texas and date Ohio or going on especially el Paso with this man had a manifesto Michael Bauer joins us from NBC news radio and it was clear that he did not like people that came from Mexico into our country and the manifesto was more than disturbing Michael it definitely was he he kind of pay tribute to the gunman who killed fifty one Muslims at two mosques in New Zealand earlier this year cited white supremacist theory which is known as the great replacement that theory holds that a lead are working to destroy the white race by replacing them with Hispanic immigrants and refugees and this was part of his motivation for why he drove some seven hundred miles from his home to el Paso to have this kind of shooting occur and then these these charges that but charges that they're working right now says in the FBI are looking at the to hate crimes in firearms charges both could carry death penalty sentence against this guy in and they are looking now officially at this as a domestic terrorism investigation you might even rob Rosenstein that the former deputy Attorney General over the weekend tweeted out the killing random civilians to suppress the to spray some political messages terrorism the F. B. I. classifies it as domestic terrorism but white terrorism is more precise many of the killers are lone wolf losers indoctrinated to hate through the internet just like Islamic terrorists so he's calling this even more specific element of domestic terrorism specifically why terrorism that is going to have to be addressed here about your hearing not just the democratic candidates but others in battle Rourke who is from el Paso sitting there talking with folks in el Paso coming off of his is democratic candidacy tour to to to stop and and and and and take care of people and visit folks who were in the hospital after the shooting indicating that he has concerns that this is exactly the kind of language in this manifesto the president is reiterating when he speaks to different events specifically ones aimed at immigration so big concerns from people that direction the president expected to talk about ten AM this morning so not sure if he's got a plan in place he wants to see implemented but supposedly the White House have been working on something all weekend long that's the I. director Christopher ray was getting go by Congress just a couple weeks ago on these types of issues interestingly enough he said that they really don't investigate ideology even if it's repugnant but if violence is that is it just always wait and see I thought the FBI would always kind of star detailing someone you know what whether it's at the dark web if you will or social media with this are kind of deal just to see kind of where their thoughts and what they're doing would be I think it's a I think there are red flag words phrases those kinds of things that pop up in because attention to be drawn to but I don't know if that necessarily means that there is a follow up outside of that day they'll they may look at it similar to a Facebook look at those kinds of things of those red flags are popped up or if they have users that are giving the morning side but like in this particular case with the guy that we're talking about here that shot no Paso he didn't post his manifesto two eight chant until minutes before you did the shooting so wasn't like it existed up there for a lengthy period of time that FBI investigators could look at it and then began an investigation on behind the scenes this guy may have prevented the shooting he didn't even posted until minutes before hand so I I don't know how much necessarily how much help is is brought from these kinds of red flags up I've suppose warnings will be good and and the ability to look into things good in the case of the Dayton shooter that guide reportedly had police taking him off of a school bus at one point time when he was in high school because it a kill list at a rate list for girls that at this point in time it's unclear why there was no further investigation or whether or not they had any call to pull this guy off the street certainly that would have been concerned about his legal purchases for arms if there were a red flag in his record but that didn't happen either good to talk with you thanks Michael for your time this morning Michael our
DOJ tells Mueller to limit scope of testimony
"It is one of the most anticipated congressional hearings in the years Robert Muller's testimony but what can we expect one of the interesting part about if we have that right off the bat all eyes expected to be on Capitol Hill with the exception of one set of eyes president trump said on Friday that he does not plan to watch former special counsel Robert Muller testimony I for one find it hard to believe I think it's gonna wait and see if Republicans can get some questions in here in regards to the steel dossier whether they get some questions in regards to the anti trump bias in the FBI agents I think all of that is going to become a big portion of the present so rest assured I'll have the split screen only have one screen of the entirety of the Mahler questioning that's going on the mall hearings and then I'll have my my iPhone right there open up to present from Twitter just follow along with one thing there but this is most definitely going to be Democrats are hoping this is going to be must see television moment because we know only three percent of Americans have read all of the Miller report only ten percent of Americans have read some of the mall a report so you're looking at somewhere in the range of ninety seven plus percent that Republicans are hoping to hit with having a live television version of the mall a report here because we know Robert Muller said he's going to limit his talking to everything that is within the four corners of the report and that seemingly is what Democrats want they would be happy with him sitting down like was twelve the night before Christmas opening report and reading from that because they feel like that will give the public an understanding increased understanding of what's actually in the report not the interpretation from the Attorney General not the interpretation from president trump of the interpretation of the Attorney General but from all of themselves so it's going to be interesting for walks like me to kind of watch the questioning going on and how Robert Muller answers not even you know what the answer may be about how he's gonna answer will start to bring up some L. interest elements as to what's going to happen going for here specifically Democrats in August that are running for president as well as how Republicans are gonna be able to tackle some of those questions Miller says he won't necessarily talk about and I don't know that anything new is going to be revealed to you yeah yeah that's what it seems like because I mean if the Republicans can get him to talk about the steel dossier if they can get him to talk about FBI agents then maybe you've got some new information to that's not stuff that in the mall the report right now so if you get that that's fantastic and then I think the other side of that is because you're right there's not going to be a lot of new in regards to this it'll just be Democrats trying to clarify things with Robert Muller I think Republicans can kind of play back a little bit I think they can play a little soft on the questioning of Robert Muller because they've got something on their side public opinion right now public opinion is tilted against impeachment the way it currently stands so they don't necessarily have to go for school on Robert Muller Ali can just let Democrats kind of messed things up or ask confusing questions or get shot down time and time again by Robert Muller and that may be their best approach in this whole thing probably so because I know I know they're they're they're trying to pull this out they've been trying to pull this out since the president got elected and it but I'm I can't help but think that it's going to backfire if they push it too hard yeah I think that's the key and I think your democratic for both sides depending on how you ask the question specifically we're talking about Robert Miller this is not somebody who's kind of surprised to getting a subpoena incoming Robert Muller has had like sixty of these kinds of hearings in his time in office so he knows how this works he knows how to go about it he knows how to play the so this is you're not going to spring something new on it with that and I think with that both sides have to be careful as the way they come across and then at the end because the with let's face it leave you're not going to have ninety percent of America watching this and that's what Democrats are hoping to get but they are going to try to get as each second try to collect as many you know viral clips that they can spread on social media or ones that they can put into the news on some level that will last throughout this month of August when they're off on vacation and more importantly with some of the democratic candidates being able to use this talking points going forward and twenty twenty well indeed and and I know a lot of people think it is a vacation I mentioned a little bit of it is but as senator Lankford just mentioned earlier in the program he's gonna be spending time going around the state talking to people which I think most of the constituents especially the ones up for election should be doing thank you for the update to Michael Bauer on newsradio
Trump, Nancy Pelosi And President discussed on Lee Mathews
"Controversy over president trump's tweets aimed at the squad continue to be addressed day before yesterday and Nancy Pelosi pulled out a house vote in what I'm interested in Michael Bauer who's joining us from twenty four seven news is what did they vote on and why so much drama you're looking at probably the end result here that the policy was looking to get that win the history of the one under sixteen Congress's written Democrats will be recorded as having condemned the US president for the first time in more than one hundred years and they did that by a mainly partisan vote only for Republicans and one former Republican turned independent just a March join the Democrats in casting this vote but it was passed in the rebuke wasn't embarrassing one for trumpet appealed to GOP lawmakers to not go along those four plus the one kind of going white in sync with what Democrats were putting on the table there and there's a lot of drama in regards to this now the measure itself that as past carries no legal repercussions for the president and the vote was for all intents and purposes is partisan as you can get minus the four Republicans which is unlikely to cost him anything with his Die Hard conservative base but there was a lot of drama in the houses went down yet Nancy Pelosi talking about why they were leveling these charges against the president saying that it was up to Democrats and Republicans to join us in condemning the presence of racist tweets and that's when Doug Collins started jumping in the Republican Rome Georgia Abschied net people if you want to rephrase her comment because house members are barred from making disparaging remarks about the president on the house floor so the resolution aimed at criticizing the president and then how he had said that these are the women in the end the squad's go back where they came from policy said that she had cleared her remarks with the parliamentarian before she read them now that's not true we had at that point in time a manual cleaver who is running the the entire B. was presiding over this entire hearing at one point in time shortly after this interaction literally dropped his gavel and say I abandon the chair he basically said listen you people here in the house only want to escalate things you wanna fight you want to escalate you don't want to get anything done there's nothing in what we're seeing here he said this that this morning but that was after numerous people that were speaking in the house were saying disparaging things about the president he was just trying to get through the vote so that with the least embarrassing amount of time that we could possibly have as a country looking at what's going on in our house and he said he couldn't take it anymore he was embarrassed he walked out that led to two hours of debate and a whole bunch of marking is just what we're going to go down next I including Steny Hoyer who's been in the house since ninety one going he'd never seen anything like this before and frankly didn't know what to do but the other day but they passed the resolution and now they will be written in the history as the other group that has up for the first time in more than a hundred years condemned the president the United States well now does it go on to the Senate where I know it'll die that's the whole point yeah we've seen the Chuck Schumer was thinking about trying to come up with a similar type of wording for a vote in the Senate this may put some pressure on them I we all know how much McConnell is when it comes to vote on the Senate floor so I don't foresee this going much further than that I think this is going to be the furthest that this goes in and you're starting to see the reality sort of kicking here and I think you're gonna start the Democrats walking away from it in that there's a new Reuters Ipsos public opinion poll showing that president trump actually gained five percentage points amongst Republican supporters and then a lost among Democrats and independents since the Sunday tweet storm and with that his overall approval numbers remain unchanged so according the poll forty one percent of the US public so the approved of his performance in office fifty five disapproved and that hasn't changed from last week so would seem as though all of this hubbub all of the update the outrage if you will was mainly focused on the fact that this came into and was solely wrapped around social media and then sort of evolved into something the television and radio picked up and covered on but reality is this is something that isn't really moving the needle at least at this

"With Michael Bauer from NBC News Radio attorney general William bar decided not to appear before the House Judiciary committee for technical reasons. Jerry Nadler, who is the head of said this committee, not happy. What's going on? Now. Michael good morning. We're seeing showdown that is beginning this morning. So it'll lead off the week on a great way. You're seeing this showdown between the attorney general and Democrats in congress as lawmakers are saying that they're prepared to begin contempt proceedings against the attorney general over handing over a full on redacted Muller reports. So yes, having the attorney general not show up last week was annoying seemed like an element of stonewalling the house and the Democrats in the house. But now, you've got House Judiciary committee chairman Jerry Nadler giving a third deadline to both. The attorney General Department of Justice to get a full unredacted report is due by nine AM this morning, and that Nadler put bar on notice that if the committee does not get that report, they will move towards contempt proceedings and seek further legal recourse, which could be fines for the attorney general in the Justice department. It could be if they were looking for a visual, technically, I guess, you could have the attorney general arrested on some level in theory. Whether that. It actually happens. Point hopefully, would never get to that point in the first place. But the Justice department is at least at this point being looked at is waiting to see if they're going to comply at nine AM this morning of the Justice department declining to comment on the letter that was written by Nadler. But but committee report is to not just it's corruption and obstruction Justice investigation against President Trump. But also to the fact that they are responsible in congress to legislate on matters like integrity of elections or relations to foreign powers and that whole first part of the investigation relates the twenty sixteen meddling by Russians in the into our election. So they want to see that full on reductive report if they're supposed to create legislation to prevent that from happening again more than just a second. But I mean, can they really do that can they sue? And or throw an attorney general cabinet member of the president of the United States in the in the big house. They don't ever want to get to that point. They hope that it would never get to that point. They also want to figure out why it is third time that the attorney general and Justice department don't wanna turn over that full report. So, you know, since the time that this initially went down since the time that they I requested. It would seem as though the attorney general the Justice department, and frankly, the house would all have the ability to request from judges that that grand jury testimony be released and that somebody would have done that on some level. If nobody was trying to get in the way and slow this whole process down. So there's a lot of questions about that that I think need to be answered. And when you don't get the attorney general coming and speaking with you, it seems as though at least this particular case, the house feels this is the movie that they have to make Michael second question. That is what's the latest on Muller? President Trump tweeting out saying that Muller shouldn't testify before congress and the Democrats should get a redo because there was no Grammy went on later. The New York Times reporting that the the. The details are going to be coming out about how the Democrats were spying on him. What's latest on these subjects? Absolutely, right. The president has made those statements which is weird because you flip flopped from the president another one that's just flipping and flopping like crazy. You had to recently as Friday, the president saying that the attorney general Bill bar would be the one making the decision on whether Muller to a congress. We've already heard from the attorney general mid week last week when he testified in front of the Senate that he had no problem with the with the Muller speaking to congress, but that's not what congress congress they've been trying to work with and getting him booked through the attorney general as well as the department of Justice to have him come testify, and they weren't getting anywhere. So they had to work an end around and actually communicate with the Muller team in order to get this tentative date of may fifteenth set aside, so that he come testify, and then after that date was released you're the president's say, there's no reason for him to come speak there. But again, this is what congress says, it's it's congress not the attorney general it's charged with the terminating weather particular presidential conduct amounts to a high crime or misdemeanor meriting impeachment. That has nothing to do with the district attorney or the attorney general rather? So that's why they're requesting all of this information. In order to conduct their investigation and getting in the way of that investigation. Well, that goes back to the obstruction charges which could come against the attorney general if he does not turn over that Mullah report. All right,.

"Michael Bauer. Our NBC News Radio reporter joins us right now. And Michael we've got attorney general William bar making his appearance before congress and having a redacted report and trying to have to explain to congress. Why it's redacted and why taking so long. Yeah. And and congress not happy about the the concept at all they still want the unredacted report. Even though you had the attorney general there who was supposed to be talking about budgets was supposed to be talking about his next budget of for the twenty twenty year for fiscal year, twenty twenty and in fact out of the first ninety minutes. Eight minutes worth of budgetary talk in the ninety minutes stretching and the rest of it was all about the mullahs report. And why he's doing what he's doing? He's redacting what he's redacting. And even though the attorney general has promised a redacted version of the four hundred page report within a week that did not make people in congress. Very happy was kind of a relief to hear that for them. But frankly, when he also added to congress, and the public would then have the ability to go over the document and determine for themselves if they were satisfied with the information there in congress, go we're going to get the same information as the public we here in congress, equal branch of the government are going to get a same information that snooky from the jersey shore is going to get and that seems fair that that was where you saw some of the outrage beginning kind of developed from there when when the attorney general didn't necessarily answer the question, if the president of the White House it had access to the unredacted report that got angry when he was asked whether or not he had. Issued a request jetty buddy. In releasing information of grand jury testimony. He said, no that's not his intention to do that. He wasn't thinking about his job was to redact the information and protect the information inside the Muller report. He wasn't looking to get that information released and that if indeed somebody like Jerry, Nadler, the judiciary committee chair from the house wanted to do exactly that that he absolutely could come talk to the attorney general first and then go make a request himself. But it wasn't bars place to feel like that was something that he had to do. And that also did not sit well with Democrats in the in the hearing yesterday because they felt like this was another sign that bar on some level was picking and choosing and hiding and protecting President Trump with the information. He was releasing bars. Go before congress again today down you expect that the lawmakers will go after them and try to get some more information on the special special counsel's report. I don't think they're going to say that. Although it could go the other direction they came out him pretty hard yesterday. And I think today's going to be more of a clarification, it will be the questions they didn't get a chance to have answered or sort of having him clarify some of the questions that they felt were murky in their answer. But this is also going to be in the Senate. So it's going to be Republican led hearing today, and I think they're going to take it a little I guess the Democrats will be fired up but not as fired up as they were yesterday. That's put it that way. So I think it'll be a little bit easier for him. But I think he's going into a safer situation for him that he did yesterday. Well, it just seems to be no end to this thing. Again. This all goes back to the Muller investigation. He came out with a report that basically exonerated the president. But that's not enough. They've got a dig and dig and dig and dig into lake and find something and again this all relates to Russia again when the faithful really related to Russia was the Clintons. In so many ways. But that's being totally ignored. That they are actually he's actually got a group together. Now, he's assembled a team to review the controversial counterintelligence decisions made by the Justice department and FBI. So if there is truth to that rumor, he's going to be investigating what happened with the Trump campaign in the summer of twenty sixteen how these investigations started up came about in regards to Russia, and whether or not any of it was tainted at the start by anti-trump bias in the FBI in Justice department. So he's independent of the investigation that's going on. And he says he's got his own independent investigation happening. Well, Michael you're joining us on AM Tampa Bay here. Michael Bauer our NBC News Radio reporter at the Bauer show on Twitter. And we'll talk to you later. You betcha. By the way, we got the latest from Alexandria Cossio Cortes. She never fails to let us down her latest is she says on Twitter, the far right loves to drum up fear and resistance to immigrants, but have you ever noticed? They never talk about what's causing people to flee their homes in the first place is inventors Waylon and all those places around the world perhaps sets because they be forced to confront one major factor. Fuelling global migration it's climate change. That's incredible. Even her own constituents are not happy with the right now after the failed Amazon deal. It's her fault that Amazon with home. They bailed out with millions of dollars. Billions that's twenty five thousand twenty thousand jobs that would have been implemented in that area. And now gone because of her all those people are leaving Venezuelan the Middle East and everything for global warming. I guess she doesn't think America's part of the globe. So doesn't matter. It's eight twenty seven on AM Tampa Bay. Emoting.

"So some law experts are now saying this is nowhere closer to ending whatsoever. And then you even got the rumors of is WikiLeaks going to be under indictment. I is Julian Assange gonna be entertainment Jerome Corsi. Andrew Miller Randy reading, no, Don, jR, any of them going to be under indictment because that's what we had heard. In a couple of those at least believe that's what's going to happen to them. Once this matter involving a company owned by a foreign nation. And then you got Richard gates who is sentencing has been put off until March. So I don't think this is wrapping up anytime soon, certainly not by the end of the month. And and the books that have come out in the past twenty four hours have got the president very upset that seems to be a way that has gotten him distracted now because one of the people writing hit Chris Christie putting his book out yesterday as well as you had a a former White House worker in cliffs SIMS put his book out yesterday. It's called up a team of vipers my five hundred extraordinary days and the Trump White House where he talks about the first two years being marked by infighting and the calls Kellyanne Conway, not just a cartoon villain brought to life, but somebody who was leaking information out of the White House and would tell Trump and FOX borders one thing while then going to the mainstream media on the back end and telling them something completely different and trashing them. He Simms called the Trump administration in unmitigated disaster. That part of the transition there and President Trump. Yes. Yesterday, while Simms was being interviewed on CNN tweeted at SAM's, basically saying that he was someone pretending to be an insider when he was in fact, nothing more than a gopher and reminding him he signed a nondisclosure agreement which the president later threatened a lawsuit with. That will be interesting to see if he if that has any teeth, and if he pursues it will because if he didn't and one of the things since pointed out at the end of that interview is it's very possible that he signed one of those nondisclosure agreements. He wasn't sure they were going to have to see how this goes. I would think that's something you want to have clarified before you ever get your book to print. I would imagine you want to have that clarified, or at least know that. Okay. What is covered and not covered under that nondisclosure. I've say saying I've signed those before too. And sometimes there's a statute on them where you know, up to thirty days ninety days after you're dismissed or whatever everything is fine. But Michael Bauer thank you for the update from Washington.

"And joining us right now is Michael Bauer. Our NBC News Radio reporter. And of course, we got this shutdown underway and Lindsey Graham is trying to get the president to temporarily reopen parts of the government, and what would be the advantage there. Well, I think there's a couple of different advantages. Your Jack number one is there are signs here. A day number twenty four th Republicans are increasingly concerned at the standoff is hurting their party politically already in the polls. I it seems indicate at this point that by a long shot the president and Republicans are mainly at followed by new polling. Fifty three percent saying the the Trump and Republicans aren't fault. Twenty nine percent, blaming Democrats and thirteen saying that both sides bear equal responsibility for the shutdown. That's according to the new Washington Post ABC poll. So that's where Americans are sitting. And I think that Republicans are starting to feel bad. So. Oh, Lindsey Graham making the suggestion that in essence is President Trump temporarily reopening the government while continuing negotiations with congressional Democrats over a three week timeframe. Now, his talks go together and everything goes over. Well, when the government stays open, right? But if the talks don't bear any fruit than the president could consider following through on his threat to bypass congress and declared a national emergency to get the border wall built. But I think what that does to is over that three week timeframe it gives some of the Republicans who have thought that this isn't such a good idea in congress to kind of think this through and see if there's something else they can come up with or if this really is a good idea from a legal standpoint legal insiders have been concerned about this as to whether or not it sets a terrible precedent because future democratic president could declare a state of emergency about gun safety or climate change or whatever. So there's all of these kinds of questions, and how would you institute where would you get the money from all those kinds of questions or questions that are still floating around you? Meanwhile, the press. Continues to talk about a national emergency. And how he's got a plan for it over the weekend that seems to be where the pause button has been this weekend. So maybe a three week timeframe isn't necessarily a bad idea. Kind of shows that you're willing to open government for those employees TSA agents to get them back on track. Some funding if possible, and maybe Lindsey Graham knows something. We don't know. Maybe he thinks there is a closer conversation in the -ation to be had here than what we were all led to believe when the president walked out of the last negotiations. Well, I'm not a seer. I'm not a Janet's Gallus or anything like that. But I predict negotiations will result in nothing between the president congressman, Michael we'll stay in touch with you because you've got the word on what's happening there, and what it might end and all that stuff. But continuing to be crossed here, Jack. There you go Michael Bauer NBC News Radio reporter, and we'll talk to you later. Michael. By the way, we got word from the candy cabbie, George Karl, and he was listening earlier. And we announced we've got these new FM signals and he said he switched to ninety four point five. Now, he's listening in Pinellas county. And he said it sounds great beautiful. That's in Pinellas. And remember if you're in Pasco, and we will remind you throughout the morning in the week ninety nine point one in Pasco, Hernando, counties and one zero five point nine right here.

"Thousand the government shutdown continues Michael Bowers joining us now from twenty four seven news. Our news division in Washington DC. So Michael, I understand the FCC has shut down. And as far as I'm concerned, they can stay shut down. You can move ahead. A little further away from that dump button. Yeah. Plus to that that plus the fact that the IRS isn't really have the manpower right now to send out all the information for taxes do here. Maybe maybe we're doing okay on the shutdown front on those things, but two sides meeting yesterday in the White House situation room, and at the end of that meeting apparently both sides decided that since we've all had so much fun with this political game of chicken over the past twelve plus days, why stop the party? Now, let's keep that party going. So here on the thirteenth day of the partial government shutdown. We know the the new democrat led US house of representatives is expected to approve a couple of bills and partial government shutdown that will never see the light of day on the Senate floor. Mitch McConnell has made that clear he will not bring any measure to a vote if there's no money for President Trump's border wall. Even though one of those bills was unanimously voted on by the Senate of just about thirteen days ago, right before the government shutdown happened and the president says, well, he's going to keep the shutdown going along as it takes to get that border wall funding. So yes that meeting yesterday between. The two sides. Nobody came any closer to agreeing on a resolution, and they're planning to try or I guess depending on how you look at it continuing to not try with another meeting scheduled for tomorrow. Now, the they never had any intention of making it any goes with this meeting. Did they because the way I understand it went down. Michael Bauer is they all sat down and right as the president was about or a right is the administration was about to speak. They just shut it down. Right. Quick. I mean, this was a this was retaliation for the other day in front of the cameras. I think there was a certain element of that. Yeah. That was kind of the concern. Democrats had that concern as well that this was going to be seen as sort of a a photo op moment a PR moment, if you will less of negotiation element to it. And and it's possible that there were some openings that got terminology that may be indicative of a negotiation. Like, there was DACA had been thrown out at some point during the meeting yesterday. And that might be something that would cause the Democrats to pause think twice and. Possibly even open the purse strings a little bit more in order to include that in the negotiation process when it comes to funding the the president's border wall. So maybe that's a possibility. We'd also seen in the matter of discussions yesterday that supposedly vice President Mike Pence came to the Democrats with somewhere between two point one and two point six billion dollar offer counteroffer right over the holidays, and that that was turned down by Democrats. And then President Trump indicating that that's not anything he would have accepted anyway. Which kind of makes me think didn't the president vice president talk about this before vice president Pence went there, or is he just going fishing and trying to see if he can get an amount from the Democrats on some level. So there are some questions because of the president wasn't willing to take two point six billion. And he's only shooting for the five point six billion. Is there any room to negotiate? So a lot of questions there for everybody to answer. But this really did seem like a live action version of Twitter that you had people making statements. Nobody listening paying attention elsewhere. And then walking away as if they were the champion of the world. That's what I got. Got out of it. But Michael Bauer is there anything the president can do or will do. In the meantime, while all this is going on to get his wall Bill. Shy of at least at this point shy of finding privatized funding on some level or or getting Mexico to actually cut a check for this thing to get this put together, I think at this point anything else is going to consider is going to be needed to have congressional approval on this on your certainly not going to get that over in the house of representatives right now. So I think at this point you're at a stalemate, you're at the stalemate. And that's why we are where we are. Right now, if there was even even getting consideration of talking about the wall later, like there's one Bill that the Democrats are thinking about putting through here that would fund the department of homeland security through February eight, and then what that does is it kind of bridges the gap. It gives both sides the ability to talk about where the money for the border wall becoming from how much we're talking about. And that would be that's the planet. Democrats are throwing out there. We'd talk about that part later. President doesn't want to have that done. It's got to be five billion dollars for the wall. Democrats are still tight on the one point three billion dollar offer. So I think the fact that the president. It doesn't have any other way to go shy of getting privatized. Wall funding, it would seem as though it would have to be approval of the congress, and he'd have to come together on some sort of an understanding and agreement as to what he would be willing to bend on right now. They don't even have a window. And there is no at this point announcement from the Republicans for any kind of counteroffers they seem to be backing out of this entirely and just pointing the Democrats and the president well Michael Bauer. Thanks for the update on NewsRadio one thousand Katie. Okay..
Michael gone but leaves behind utter devastation in Panhandle
"To go in depth now with NBC News Radio is Michael Bauer. Michael the the totality of damage that we're seeing now with hurricane Michael, particularly in the panhandle. But not limited to just the panhandle is breathtaking in its scope. It is breathtaking. It's devastating. It's it's sad to watch. And there's a certain element of this crazy calmness. When you're looking at the footage of Mexico beach, and the devastation therein in and just slab were a home used to be another slab where a home used to be. And then you're seeing off to the side. Just the remnants of those homes pushed up against condo buildings or apartment buildings boats in the middle of road, just the emptiness. And then there's. This blue sky in the waves coming up in a beautiful fashion that that dichotomy is just it's shaking to a lot of people overseeing here, we also know that it's a very limited scope of people who can get into those areas, and that's just one portion of it. We're looking at Mexico beached. It's kind of. Apocalyptic destruction right now, I hap- expecting Rick Grimes and Mishaan from the Walking Dead to come out and start fighting zombies. It look that devastated. And that's just a portion of neighborhoods that people are trying to get through and clean up. At this point. Joe we're still looking at neighborhoods that first responders and emergency crews haven't been able to get to yet. And that's the big story here. There's a huge cleanup. That's underway. That's going to take a long time to get there. And governor Rick Scott, telling everybody, listen right now, no reason for you to try to hurry back to your homes to see how everything is let us get things cleaned up before anybody starts making their way out of any shelter. Honestly, why go back? There's nothing to go back to this point them. Get the bulldozers out there to bulldoze everything guys start with a fresh canvas. And if you're gonna rebuild let's bulldoze everything I and get the canvas ready for something like that. Because it is just an utter mess. It is strange to see just these empty empty cement palace were homes used to be. And then they're still standing home for some reason this home built better get got hit the right way, and then other areas right next to it. Where homes are gone. I mean, literally does look like it's mostly leveled. So why not go in there and level the rest of it? And just start the rebuilding process push everything intake truckloads of garbage out and move forward from
