Rep. Quigley Questions Muller At Congressional Hearings
"Quickly was a big part of the second more hearing on the house intelligence committee was originally scheduled join us in just a few minutes about five twenty but he's going to be busy so graciously called a little bit earlier health minister answer a couple of questions thank you for your time this afternoon how are you Sir one one more time here beat that I think we know so the music was just a bit loud the blackout connection open tomorrow so it begins the best part of the summer training camp and Blackhawks convention now that we have the a molar here in the long awaited the much anticipated Muller hearing behind us your thoughts on if it made any impact at all if you think it will change one vote in this very divided country one opinion and just if Mr Maulers fitness in general I just want to get your take on it I don't know that much changes as you describe it a polarized country it's something they can to a political debate where most people I'll go to a political debate have already made up their mind it just reinforces where they are I think it was Woodrow Wilson said almost all actions are site decided by four five percent in the middle even only three percent had read the report I think it informed a lot more looking maybe add value there and as for Mr Miller I I got the impression that he was tired a denture a lot he's I think he's a seventy five now it but it's never easy doing this the L. seven hours and at least half of it people are yelling now letting you answer questions and not being protected particularly respectful so I don't know any of us in the his position yesterday congressman clearly regard so what you just said about does it's a tough tough room to play is that why you started your opening comments to Mister Muller by saying this too shall pass there was a as quick as I could settle message of sympathy or empathy for what he was going through you mentioned that you say that I consider myself to be a modern I consider myself to be an independent I don't carry water for either of the parties that being said don't you worry that the Democrats including yourself for calling for impeachment inquiry is at the very least are over playing your hands similarly to all the Republicans did during the Clinton area and even if you impeach the president he will not be convicted in the Senate animal break bad for the Democrats possibilities next November look I'm I'm understanding of that I think what frustrated me was impeachment inquiry does many things one of the most important is it gives you a much greater argument in court when you're attempting to get the president to turn over records and to respond to subpoenas have people come and testify so for me what was the what moves the needle work the president yes totally shiny bite down who might come testify and not answer any other questions or are responding to subpoenas so this is a tactical way of speeding the process affect I think somebody part of the fact yes Sir the molar kinda concluded his report because he realized to go through litigation to get to people in to be interviewed was going to run the clock town is worried that this if this was deep in the next year they'll be coming in for a political firestorm more than that even is because the election I think that's accurate in what he said I also think it's a problem what it what it tells future executives Democrat or Republican is J. you just walk at every turn and time all right out the second part of that day I raised in my questions was he got a pressure whether some of the strong Democrat or strong Republican or an independent the question the other question I raised was what happened the president serves beyond the statute of limitations so a president can make obstruction of justice to get elected or shortly thereafter they serve a second term that's eight years the statute of limitations on that crime and many federal crimes would have won out so the logic behind the wheel that you can't indict a seeded president is that the process should be impeachment that's a better course and it's unconstitutional to indict the modern office I don't think the founding fathers envisioned a system that would allow anyone to be above the law they just sign off the yoke of the king obviously was about the law and I I just I think it's irrational I think it's something you handle with the greatest care and respect but yet now if you take it to its extreme surprise it could commit an extraordinarily serious crime and never be held accountable do you get the sense we're talking here congressman Mike quickly from the fifth congressional district here in Chicago is on the intelligence committee Sonya stayed in the more hearing the in the Nixon here when the tapes came out and Republicans heard the tapes that's a very cold water went to the White House is I guess what you've got to go Donald Trump maybe a lot of different things to a lot of different people and he certainly is not very he's quite sloppy in his verbiage that being said you really get the sense that there's more to what we've already learned regarding the people that ran his campaign and and hostile foreign entities is there any there there or is this just over I think what you read was a lot of air right I mean matter fort for financial gain needing with the Russians those tied to a G. R. U. their intelligence service personally profit in a peace plan which will allow Russia to keep its land grab in Ukraine and Crimea that's pretty troubling the trump tower Moscow deal is extraordinarily troubling because they knew that they would need approval from the the highest sources the highest powers in Russia to do it never gonna profit greatly yeah there's a lot of their their now is there more yeah I'm on the scene I've been on the committee since the first day of rest and there's a lot of troubling issues here this is a very damning report and and finally as important as what's in the report and a director mall or references this began as a counterintelligence investigation was the president United States compromised it it began by an FBI investigation of people questioning what the Russians would do and who was listening to that where is that investigation apparently director mall or send it all over to the FBI or it's in the Southern District of New York or other collection of those are extraordinary question this is important stuff I know people and I think it absolutely everything is partisan but they are this present and acted inappropriately and there's still work to do we'll have to leave it there is a no you have to go but thanks for coming on this radio station I you're always welcome on the show to give your opinion and the inside and did molar testified behind closed doors after the second session yesterday I'm not quite sure about that no he didn't I think he wisely got that act out of there as he could and I'm not sure anyone could going thanks for your time and good luck with the Blackhawks this year thank you take care of things here that is constantly quickly a member of the house intelligence committee your

Nothing new to report: Robert Mueller testifies
"And the competitors editors are really fast I up though after months of anticipation special special counsel Robert Mueller reluctantly appeared before Congress yesterday for hours of televised testimony penalty of perjury testimony you're about to give correct the best of your knowledge information belief so help you got but the record show the witness sense of the affirmative thank you and please be seated he testified in back to back hearings for the House Judiciary Committee and the House Intelligence Committee with the President's still refuse to sit interview by your your team Pru in sometimes halting performance. Mr Mueller reiterated points from his Report on whether President Donald Trump's election campaign conspired with Russia whether Mr Trump impeded the ensuing investigation allegation lost the noise again was a warning that Russian operatives continue to meddle in America's electoral system. Mr Mueller had promised that his testimony would contain nothing beyond his report and on that he delivered his appearance doesn't seem to have had the impact that many Democrats were hoping for it may be the last that the public here's from Mr Muller even if his investigation and his report continue continue to drive debate Robert Mueller's investigation ran for two years during that whole time he said nothing publicly John Pro is our United States editor. There was a lot of competition journalists to find out what was really going on with the murder investigation and it wasn't leaky then when he presented his report finally he gave some short remarks and that was it and since then Democratic congressman in particular really wanted to get him to testify so that they could get him on the record they could get clips of him talking about President Trump and so this is really equally anticipated in the end they had to six hours even though he said he was reluctant to testify and as a prosecutor who still had some life cases it was in some senses inappropriate to do so so this was very eagerly anticipated testimony on the hill. Did he taimour. What what? What did they extract from him? He didn't say a whole lot more. Most disasters was short clip it. I refer you to this page in the report yes no. He didn't go beyond what was written in the reports and again he said Rice at the beginning of his testimony that he wouldn't do so I I would <hes> direct you to report dot what we have in the report with regard to that particular. We don't have the redacted version that's yet nevertheless there was a certain power to hearing him say some of the things that appear the report I pick out two things in particular the I would be on obstruction of justice has repeatedly claimed that your report found there was no obstruction and that it completely and totally exonerated him but that is not what reports said is it correct. It is not what the report said so one of the headlines President not cleared on obstruction of justice. There was a sudden powered seeing row but Melissa the other thing was him saying that agreeing with the Democratic congressman the president could potentially be charged once he leaves office because that opinion of the of legal counsel would no longer apply. Could you charge the president with a Trimbe after he left office. Yes you believe that he committed you could charge the president United States with obstruction structure justice after he left office yes ethically under the ethical standards. I'm not certain looked at the standards but but that's not a whole lot of payoff from six hours of testimony and what did Mr Moore say about the Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election on election interference by the Russian government he repeated much of the evidence which is in the report is very damning on the extent of the activities. He also said that he thought that election interference by rush was ongoing no repercussions whatsoever to Russia if they did this again and as you stated earlier as we sit here they're doing it now. Is that correct. You're absolutely right. Do you have any violent. He said that he hoped hoped this wasn't the new normal in American politics but it very well may be so it was democratic congressman who who wants to get Mr Miller on the on the national stage in the first place well. How do you think they did in terms of making the most of their opportunity identing they what they wanted? Wanted out of this. If what they wanted was to get lots of footage of Robert Mueller criticizing Donald Trump has campaign by reading up it's his report. They didn't get that what they did get is what another thing that congressman often want from these these kinds of hearings which is clips of themselves talking for many of them. The point was their opportunity to speak rather than what they could get out of Robert Mueller and you could see this by even while Muller was testifying you had clips of the Democratic and Republican congressman grilling him popping up cut by their office and then popping up on Youtube and on twitter so the opportunity for the Congress when to speak was as important or Bob's even more important than the opportunity for Robert mullet speak and and that's kind of grandstanding was going on both sides of the I'll certainly was as you'd expect Republicans were keen to repeat one of the conclusions of the report which was that the special counsel didn't find evidence for conspiracy between the trump campaign and the Russian Russian government on the other hand they will also very keen to assail Muller's impartiality the credibility of some of his team. You hired a bunch of people that did not like the president. Peter Struck hated trump okay. You didn't know that before he was made part of your team. Is that what you're saying not know that all right a low of Republicans on the committee were very cross that he'd floated this idea that he couldn't exonerate the president and they said well. This is not how prosecutors met behave prosecutors. Don't stand up and say I can't exonerate this person they stand up and say I can charge this person or I can't charge this person and so you know you'll legal theory of this. This case is questionable so the quite a lot of that was even some slightly crazy conspiracy theory stuff so yes there was a good deal of grandstanding Republicans as well and you got the feeling that plenty of them probably knew the president trump would have been watching some of this on T._v.. Anxious to impressive and did they succeed was was was impressed. Well it seems so he was tweeting writing about it on and he had plenty of towards Robert Muller had no material he had nothing to work with so obviously he did very early today. I don't think there's anybody even among the fakers. I don't think there's anybody that would say he did well. I I looked at your testimony means for president trump for president trump the most important thing here it was whether the testimony would make it more likely that House Democrats would try to impeach him. I think it's less likely than it was before Robert Muller testified. I didn't think it was very likely in the first place in for a number of reasons but most of them just politically clearly the democratic leadership in the house doesn't want to impeach they think that if you impeach in the House and then the president is acquitted in the Senate that backfires politically you know that may you may not be correct but it certainly view and I think that's those Democrats who in favor of impeachment those house Democrats in favor of impeachment who are hoping perhaps that robot mullah might give them some ammunition will have been disappointed by the hearing so take coif president trump impeachment less likely and what about four what the <hes> the public will make try to this. This has been this trailed as a huge event. <hes> what happens now. Does this draw a line under it. Is this the end of of the the broader muller question. This has always been a story which has fascinated people who follow to politics very closely more than it's been a story for the public large. If you go round talking to voters away from the big cities it's hard to find signed much mention of the Muller people focused on different things and so the Democrats may be rather disappointed in the short time by Robert molest testimony. Actually you know politically internal GONNA political strategy. It might not be a bad thing for them to move on from this so the the seems to be the last that will hear from from Robert Mueller and you've been following this for for literal years in <hes> forensic detail. What's what's your take away from? All this might take away from this release something about how the news is made. I I mean had the Miller <unk> landed without the trails without the investigative reporting without everything we knew already about what happened in the two thousand sixteen campaign had it just landed on people's desks without any knowledge I think it would have had an extraordinary impact pat in American politics. I think it's quite likely you would have had impeachment proceedings already but the way that on knowledge of what happened in two thousand sixteen both in the Russian election interference and in terms of what the trump campaign got up to the way gradually built men the win report arrived a lot of people struck by shoulders and said Oh well does not much new to see here that

'Strove to hire those individuals that could do the job': Mueller defends hiring practices

S. the president over a dozen questions about whether he had knowledge that we keep leaks possessed or might possess the emails that were stolen by the Russians I apologize sure can you start again okay sure and so we're looking at appendix C. and it appendix C. page five you asked the president about a dozen questions about whether he had knowledge that wikileaks possess the stolen emails that might be released in a way helpful to his campaign or harmful to the Clinton campaign is that correct to ask those questions okay in February of this year Mr trump's personal attorney Michael Cullen testified to Congress under oath that quote Mr trump's new from Roger stone in advance about the wikileaks drop of emails and quote that's a matter of public record isn't it well the aged and are you referring to the report or some other public practice was testimony before Congress by Mr calling do you know if he told and I I'm not familiar with it and it's explicitly familiar with what he testified to have before Congress okay let's look in an event described on page eighteen of volume two of your report now according and we're gonna put it up in a slight I think according to deputy campaign manager Rick gates in the summer of twenty sixteen he then candidate trump were on the way to an airport shortly after wikileaks released its first set of stolen emails and gates told your investigators that candidate trump was on a phone call and when the call ended trump told gates that more releases of damaging information would be coming and quote do you recall that from the report it's in the report I've support okay and that's on page eighteen of volume two now on page seventy seven of volume to your report also stated quote in addition some witnesses said that trump privately sought information about future wikileaks releases and quote is that correct correct now in appendix C. where the president did answer some written questions he said quote I do not recall discussing with the leaks with him nor do I recall being aware of Mr stone having discussed wikileaks with individuals associated with my campaign and quote is that correct I have it from the report it is correct okay so is it fair to say the president denied ever discussing wikileaks with Mr stone and denied being aware that anyone associated with his campaign discussed wikileaks with stone I'm sorry could you repeat that one is it fair then that the president denied on knowledge of himself or anyone else discussing wikileaks dumps with Mister yes okay and with that I would yield back thank you ma'am thank you Mister chair Mister Miller over here Mr Miller did you indeed interview for the FBI director job one day before your point a special counsel.

"You Mister chairman Mr Miller this run over here I'm sorry this is the Republicans guy Russian call from Pennsylvania independent counsel statute it's a statue on which can Starr was appointed that can started what I'm sorry are you familiar with the independent counsel statute are you talking about the one in Abu we operating under now were you which can Starr was appointed I am not that familiar with that but I do have to take a question we clean ministration allowed the independent counsel statute to expire after Ken Starr's investigation the final report requirement was a major reason why this statute was allowed to expire even president Clinton AG Janet Reno expressed concerns about the final report requirements and I'll quote Eiji Reno she said on one hand the American people have an interest in knowing the outcome of an investigation their highest officials on the other hand the report requirement cuts begins at many of the most basic traditions and practices of American law enforcement under our system we presume innocence and we value privacy we believe the information obtained during Cremona assignation should in most cases be made public only if there is an indictment and prosecution nine in a lengthy and detailed report found after decision had has been made not to prosecute the final report provides a forum for unfairly airing a targets dirty laundry it also creates yet another incentive for an independent counsel to over investigate in order to justify his hold her tenure in to avoid criticism that the independent counsel may have left a stone unturned yeah Mister Miller those are AG Reno's words do you do exactly what AG Reno feared getting you published a lengthy report unfairly airing the targets dirty laundry without recommending charges I've been in the industry with that did I not getting longer witnesses have a chance to be cross examined can I just finish my answer on quickly my operate under the current statute not the original state I am most familiar with the current statute not the older studied any of the witnesses have a chance because examine did any of the witnesses in our investigation yes I'm not able to answer that did you allow the people mentioning report to challenge how they were characterized I'm not gonna get into even the AG Barr stated multiple times during his confirmation hearing he would make as much of your report public as possible did you write your report knowing there would likely be shared with the public no did you know in the report could in a likely would be made public did that alter the contents would you included I can't speak to that despite the act expectations the report would be released to the public you left out significant exculpatory evidence in other words evidence favorable to the president correct well I actually just would disagree with you I think we strove to put into the report I think Michael but well I got into that with you we said there was as you said there was evidence you left out well here you make a choice as to what goes into his instrument Mr Miller is entries on page one volume two usually when you're courting the statue the other obligations either prosecute or not prosecute or generally that is the case right although most cases are not done in the context of of the president in this case you made a decision not to prosecute cracked we made a decision not to decide whether to prosecute or not so so essentially what your port game was everything that AG Reno warned against I can't agree with that character as well what he did is he compiled a nearly four hundred fifty you compound nearly four hundred fifty pages of the very worst information you gathered against the target your investigation who happens to be the present the United States and you did this knowing the you're not going to recommend charges and in the report would be made public not true Mister Mister Mayer as a former officer in the United States jag corps I prosecute nearly a hundred shares in a Baghdad for I cross examine the butcher of Fallujah in defense of our navy seals as a civilian I was elected a magisterial district judge in Pennsylvania so I'm very well versed the American legal system the drafting in the publication of some of the information in this report without an indictment without prosecution frankly flies in the face of American justice and I find those facts this entire process on American other major my time to my colleague Jim Jordan mystery director Mahler the third Fizer Noelle happens a month after your name special counsel one injured by the renewal of card okay and I could talk to that the gentleman has expired the generator for asking questions a mile or a couple of my colleagues right here one to talk to you or ask you about life so let's talk about lies according to your report page nine volume one witnesses lied to your office and to Congress those lies materially impaired the investigation of Russian interference according to your report other than the individuals who pled guilty to crimes based on there are lying to you and your team did other witnesses lied to you I think and then they're probably inspector witnesses and in terms of those who not telling the full truth and those are all right liars thank you very much to say that there were limits on what evidence was available to your investigation of both Russia election interference and obstruction of justice that's true it is usually the case and that laws by trump campaign officials and administration officials impeded your investigation I would generally agree with that thank you so much director Molly you will be hearing more from me in the next year and so I yield the balance of my time to Mr Correa thank you the smaller for small and we welcome you thank you for your service to our country your hero Vietnam War vet wounded more that we won't forget to service to our country thank you Sir hi may begin because of time limits we have gone in depth on only five possible episodes of the construction there's there's so much more and I want to focus in on another section of obstruction which is the president's conduct concerning Michael Flynn is Democrat Fleischer in early twenty seven the White House counsel and the president were informed that Mister Flynn had lied to government authorities about his communications with the Russian ambassador during the trump campaign in transition is this correct correct if a hostile nation knows that a US official has lied publicly that can that can be used to blackmail that government official correct okay speak to that I don't disagree with it necessarily but like a sweet day anymore to that issue thank you very much Sir Flynn resigned on February thirteenth twenty sixteen and the very next day when the president was having lunch with New Jersey governor Chris Christie did the president say open calls now that we fired flan the Russia thing is over close quote is that correct correct and is it true that Christie responded by saying open quotes No Way and this Russia thing is far from over close quote that's the way we have it in the report

Harold Miller Discusses Improving Medicare's Alternative Payment Models
"To the healthcare policy podcast again on the host, David intra Cosso during this podcast, discuss Medicare's, alternative payment, models, APM's or more. Specifically, how APM's can be improved with Munis gust? The topic is president and CEO of the center for healthcare quality and payment reform herald Miller herald, welcome back to the program. Thank you. David vigor listeners may recall, I spoke with Mr Miller in September twenty fifteen moreover about bundled payments. Mr Miller's bio is of course, posted on the podcast website on background that twenty fifteen. Macro law created Medicare's advanced payment models again APM's these are otherwise term pay for performance reimbursement models where the provider assumes financial risk based on historical on regional spending in quality measurement performance. There are currently a dozen APM's although this year Medicare Advantage could qualify almost all of these are demonstration and the flagship of APM's or the one of currency give against is the as Medicare should savings program. More commonly termed ACO's because the vast majority of EPSN beneficiaries are over ten million are assigned to it. Or again, ACO's the ACO program just to note is currently. In its eighth year is unclear to what extent ACO's have reduced Medicare spending growth largely because CMS does not formally evaluate the program. If Medicare program, however to remain financially saw build fee for service APM's must produce meaningful. Savings results since the Medicare Advantage program that currently enrolls over thirty three Medicare beneficiaries and his rapidly growing does not in federal financial accounting terms score savings with me again to discuss APM's the flaws in their current design. And moreover how they can be better designed or generate meaningful savings is Harold Miller. So that is back on her. Let me start by asking we just celebrated or some did the nine year anniversary of the Affordable Care Act. So if I could begin by asking what's your overall Sussman of efforts moreover under the ACA to reduce Medicare spending growth over almost now ah decades time. Well, I think it was called the Affordable Care Act, but most of the law and most of the attention has really been about improving access to insurance and the the law has clearly done that. But I think that the track record in terms of actually making healthcare more affordable as much weaker. There really were weren't that many provisions in the law designed to deal with that. And the few that were there have had pretty slow implementation. I would say one of the things is you wanted to talk about alternative payment models today. One of the hopes was that the center for Medicare and Medicaid innovation. That was created under the Affordable Care Act would really spark a lot of innovation in terms of the way Medicare, and then hopefully other payers would pay for healthcare, but it's been pretty disappointing in terms of how. Much or how little is done to to do that in those nine years. Yes. Correct. I was going to follow up with your view of the Medicare cheered savings program December final rule, but let's we'll get to that. So let's move onto. Generally, you've written now numerous detailed reports regarding Medicare payment reform over the last several years, let's focus on your latest work. That is your January report titled the prom with Medicare's alternative payment models and how to fix them. Let me start by asking what would an idealized APM generally, look like. Well, I think in my opinion, if it were ideal model, and I know that there's written there's no one ideal model, but the the the elements of it would need to address the problems that exist in fee for service payment without taking away the strength of fee for service payment, and would actually and able physicians hospitals. Other health care providers to be able to deliver care to patients in in ways that would be both better for the patient and lower spending for Medicare or other payers. There are many many opportunities in to reduce spending without hurting patients in

"I'm Scott Simon people won't land along President Trump's proposed border wall risk losing their land. Here's the is ever. Actually, built some residents have received letters from the federal government in the last couple of months advising them of that possibility. There is some history here t Christian Miller, a senior reporter fro publica dug into all of this in a series co published with the Texas Tribune called the taking Mr Miller. Thanks so much for being with us. Thanks for having me on and take us back to this time. I guess what was called the border fence under the Bush administration of what was the plan at that point? So this is back in two thousand six and it was called the secure fence act and both Republicans and Democrats joined together to vote for the construction of a border fence as it was called at the time. It was eighteen feet high. So it wasn't quite as large as what President Trump has discussed building down there. There was a major construction effort and it put up fence all along the Rio Grande in different parts or do that the federal government had a seize land from a bunch of private property owners. And that's what our story looked at how the government in our reporting showed had abused that process to take land and resulted in unfair payments to different people. Well, we certainly want to talk about that. But let's note, I am big name democrat signed under this plan too. Didn't they oh sure back then it was a bipartisan effort, so? Senator Peking from Republican from New York introduced the act it was approved by both then senators Hillary Clinton, and then Senator Barack Obama both of Oded to approve the construction of the secure fence. Well, what happened when they actually began? So the first step in Texas is kind of an unusual situation. Must much of the land along the US border is in public hands already owned by the government. But for a variety of reasons in Texas, most of the border is still owned by private property owners. And this includes very wealthy individuals who own big ranches and farms along the river, and a lot of small most of the Tino owners who've had claimed the land in some cases, dating back to Spain own that part of Texas. So it's an unusual situation, and it required the government to come in and exercise what's called, eminent domain. And you might have heard of that before it's when the government takes a land to build things, like, national parks or military. Basis. The interesting thing about the federal government is it in the nineteen thirties. When the US was in the middle of the depression. There was a big movement to stimulate the economy with large public works projects. So because of that need congress passed a very special law called the declaration of taking act. What that sensually did is it gave the government. Unlike any other government agency gave the federal government the power to quickly seize land. And why say quickly I mean, the government sends you a letter and the next day they can take title to your land. And that's all the declaration of taking and that's what they used to the army corps of engineers and department of Justice used to take land along the Texas border to build the fence, and what they do is to compensate you as they write you a check. And they say, here's the check we own the land. Now, let's argue about how much money this check is four. But there's really no argument you make about whether or not they get to take your land the federal government almost. Uniquely has the power to take land first and then pay you later. The land. We're talking about the action in two thousand six is there is there a beautiful wall there today? I don't want to apply on whether it's beautiful or not. But yes, there is a wall that stretches along a fence. I guess we should say, right. Yes. It's a fence. It's a question of terminology. There are places where it's a big there's a concrete supporting barrier there. And there are places where there is a metal fence that looks to most people who looked like a giant rusted picket fence did everyone get paid reimbursed. No, even ten years later now there are still lawsuits open where people still haven't paid for. The land words there were still negotiating how much to accept flow. And and there's no reason to suspect that won't occur. If there's any new wall construction t Christian Miller Shania reporter for propublica. Thanks so much for being with us. Thank scott. I appreciate it. Here's a question that still plagued humanity. How do you keep one group of people from slaughtering? Another. The us holocaust memorial museum is trying to find an answer. They are leading an effort called the early warning project. Try to identify where mass killings may be likely to occur. NPR's Jason Bobi and reports history. Unfortunately, does repeat itself two thousand years ago, the Romans laid siege to Carthage killing more than half of the city's residents and enslaving the rest Hitler attempted to annihilate the Jews in Europe in one thousand nine hundred four the Hutus turned on the toot season Rwanda the Kamerhe Rouge killed a quarter of Cambodia's population. After the break up of Yugoslavia, the Serbs slaughtered thousands of Bosnians at Trevor nitsa in July nineteen ninety-five in two thousand seventeen went Buddhists attack Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar. Many people were shocked to hear that mass killings still occur in the twenty first century. But there's growing evidence that these events follow familiar patterns genocides are not spontaneous. That's Jill Savitt. She's the acting director of the Simon Scott center for the prevention of genocide at the us holocaust memorial museum in Washington DC in the lead up to these types of crimes, we do see consistent set of things happening. The holocaust museum along with scholars from Dartmouth has mapped the conditions that precede genocide they built a database of every mass killing since World War Two. Then they went back and looked at the conditions in those countries just prior to the attacks. And now they used that computer model to analyze which nations currently are at greatest risk. This is not we're not forecasting with precision. That's not the intention of the tool what we're doing is trying to alert policymakers that here's a situation that is ripe for horrors to happen in the three years prior to the attacks on the hanger me, and mar ranked as the country most likely to have a mass killing for two of those years and ranks number three in the other the museums computer model analyzed. Statistics that you might think have nothing to do with genocide fluctuations in per capita gross domestic product infant mortality rates overall population size. They also plug in data about recent coup attempts levels of authoritarianism, civil rights political killings and ethnic polarization, Lawrence Witcher who works on the early. Warning project says the form of government is one of the key data points. The most dangerous appears to be a government. That's not a full dictatorship, nor a full democracy. The I think prevailing view about why mass atrocities occur is that they tend to be decisions by political elites when they feel under threat in and a condition of instability. And there's lots of analysis that suggests that these middle regime types are less stable than full democracies or philosophies the project ranks one hundred and sixty two countries by their potential for a new mass killing to erupt in the coming year. The Democratic Republic of Congo is currently the most at risk followed by Afghantistan. Egypt is number three on the list. And at number four war-torn, south Sudan is expected to get even worse. Greg Stanton is a professor at George Mason University. And the president of genocide watch he has his own model for predicting mass killings Stanton. Criticizes the holocaust museums model for being overly dependent on national data that's often only released once a year, they tend to notice that there's risk of genocide too late Stanton argues that rather than looking at to try to predict mass killings you should look at events. It's not enough to know that you have an authoritarian regime, which is one of their characteristics. And we accept that. In fact, consider it important, but it is very important to know what that return regime is doing Stanton has come up with the prediction model based on ten stages of genocide. Interesting fact, the US currently takes off many of the early stages of a country headed for a blood bath. Breath. There's polarization discrimination dehumanisation, but strong legal and government institutions in the US are likely to block such a disaster from happening the information that genocide watch and the holocaust museum are sifting through has been available to national security agencies for decades. The big question is what do you do with this information at the time of the Rwandan genocide in nineteen Ninety-four Stanton was working the State Department, and he says top government officials knew that the violence was about to begin our President Clinton said after their one and genocide we really didn't know I'll be direct. He was lying. He did know because I've read the cables, I read the confidential cables that came in from Rwanda from our ambassador there months before that genocide, and they knew it was coming Stanton's ten stages of genocide and the holocaust museums early warning project are both attempts to spread information more widely about the rumblings of genocide. And get that information out as early as possible. Jason bobbie-ann NPR news, actually, the NBA is putting on its big London game the New York Knicks ticket on the Washington Wizards, but in his canter, the Knicks won't be there. Mr. Kanter is Turkish and an outspoken critic of Turkish president air to one he was playing basketball for the Oklahoma City thunder and twenty seventeen when he was detained at a Romanian airport. When Turkey revoked his passport and his canter joins us now from New York. Thanks so much for being with us. Thank you guys reminded me. And why did you decide not to go to London I really didn't feel safe because the Turkish government is very famous for hunting down those who oppose are drawn. So I mean, I just didn't want to really responded life by going to Europe. But you know, I talked to my team I told them well, like how many times I wanna come because I want to be with you guys. And I want to get a win which you guys and then later on they came back with the news and say, you know, what I think the best decision as if you don't come. That's just not risky for one game. You do you feel safe in New York and elsewhere in the US I had been getting less to three days hunter's death threats. But I think I feel safe in America but anywhere else in the world. I wouldn't really feel feel safe. Did you say you've gotten hundreds of death threats? Yes. I haven't getting him since two thousand sixteen but especially the last two or three days I get into law. So lots of Beth writes. And we'll note that your father never met Kanter. Yes has been indicted in Turkey's accused of belonging to a terrorist organization. He is a follower of cleric who is in the United States and accused of plotting a coup against the air to one government. Does your father's as innocent? Well, I'll tell you this. I have no contact with my family right now. And I just don't want him to get in trouble. And if they have any little taxi. Hi, mom. Hi, guys. How you guys doing high debt, and they'll be all in jail. They actually took my dad in jail for seven days, and we put so much pressure from here in America to Turkey, and they had to let him go. I have to tell you. A former NBA star also from Turkey Turkoglu is now chief an advisor to president. And he's he's been critical of you. Yes. Have anything to say about that? I was a real good friends with him actually play since same team two thousand eleven we were teammates in the Tokes net national team. And then after that, I think till two thousand thirteen fourteen we played against each other because he also have played an MBA..

"Three W D T K dial that number to be on the John McCullough show. Let's get out to the phone lines ASAP and talk to folks out there waiting to have their say Gerald is in garden city, Gerald, thanks for calling. Yes. I would just like to say, I think they need to take a picture of every democrat Representative for every Hollywood actor it believes that we should have these people in the ones that have hosted twenty four hours twenty four seven and also ask them if they would mind taking one of these refugee families in until we can find a hole for him. And then see what they say. And what they do and see if they're racist. That's all I have to say, I'll listen to your comment. Thanks, a lot of Gerald for calling the program today to make that comment. It's simply speaks to the hypocritical nature of all of the critique about this wall. And you know, that the Democrats are losing the debate in particular when they reduce it to things like morality, this has nothing to do with morality in the sense that we just don't want people crossing our borders illegally. What it speaks more of as you've indicated Gerald is a level of hypocrisy that hypocrisy. Was on full display recently in a debate on news television. I believe it was MSNBC. And if I can get that audio I will play a couple of those comments for you, folks. Just to let you hear the kind of hypocrisy that I am talking about to start it off. I want you to hear what one news reader by the name of wolf Blitzer on CNN had to say to senior presidential adviser, Stephen Miller when they had a conversation about this situation and whether or not Democrats were philosophically consistent legally sound or actually hypocritical. We'll see what happens wolf, but I believe that. Hopefully, some Democrats will come to their senses you homemade compromise. To a compromise. That doesn't include the five billion dollars. We want a Bill that keeps Erica safe. The president has been clear about that. In his remarks today at the signing ceremony for the farm belt. And I'm not going to negotiate with you here on air. The house is going to pass a Bill to the Senate, and we'll see what happens next. Yeah. We'll see what happens next. But before they got to that point, Mr Miller wanted Mr. Blitzer to know that when it comes to border wall security, the Democrats haven't exactly been consistent, the Democrats all day to do support border security and the government funding, but. The support border security. They don't support five billion dollars could could you identify wolf for me some of the kinds of border security. You're saying the Democrats say they support borders. What were they? Thank you. They voted against ending sanctuary cities. They voted against the porting MS thirteen gang members. They voted against deporting violent criminals, they voted time and time again against a physical border wall to stop illegal entry. Where's the evidence that you keep asserting therefore border security? They haven't been I want to move out. Yeah. Of course, you want to move on wolf eight hundred nine two three nine three eight five that speaks. I think most clearly to what our previous caller was trying to communicate a level of hypocrisy that is not supported by their previous positions or by the positions. They are now taking which fly absolutely in the face of everything they claim to believe in with regard to immigration and illegal immigration Casey's listening to the program in Saint Clair shores. Casey, thanks for calling. Good evening, sir. Is the byproduct of liberal lose the logical argument, and they feel they're losing the emotional argument because dummy crat liberal all they're doing. Being stopped because they ate Trump more than they love their country because down right to the fact of it all. All right. Seventy two countries. Order wall. And. Country. And I want the president dimension that those country border wall nineteen ninety why would they waste all that money because they were the five billion that is asking..
Federal judge rules Obamacare unconstitutional
"Instead of going in there and putting on the fire. They're throwing lighter fluid on it. In terms of tweets and rhetoric and things are saying the ruling was absurd Justice Roberts, and a conservative court has already ruled that the Affordable Care Act is constitutional. Unlike what Mr Miller said, and in fact, you can have part of it. Not exist, and you can still have the rest of it protect Americans. And that is exactly where this is headed. And I can say that this is about first of all throwing people offer their insurance no protection with preexisting conditions. Kids staying on their parents insurance. Twenty six years old a very popular and important protection Medicaid expanded for millions of Americans. That's what we're talking about here and for them just to throw their hands and say, well, be great. If we just started from scratch. That's not what the American people believe just look at the results from the last election. A White House says senior adviser Stephen Miller says he believes the supreme court will eventually way in obviously there's no change immediately ObamaCare. There hasn't been a nationwide injunction. Abolished here was ruled to be unconstitutional. We've always known that ObamaCare was unconstitutional. The more important question is whether Democrats are going to work with Republicans wants to Bama cares. Ultimately struck down which we believe it will be to come up with. A replacement plan that protects preexisting conditions helps the twenty million Americans who because of ObamaCare still don't have access to health insurance and keeps prices low through robust competition. So to be clear there, you're predicting this goes to the supreme court and at the supreme court ultimately strikes down. I believe that's the likeliest outcome because ObamaCare has always been unconstitutional and the mandate. Well, technically, this decision wasn't possible until the tax law was put into place. But in terms of what this means for the twenty million Americans. It does create some uncertainty about about the twenty eight million Americans who still don't have health insurance because ObamaCare didn't work. Fortunately, because of the dramatic action. This ministration has taken we've increased choice we've increased competition for the first time in a long time premiums on the exchanges are going down not up. So we'll it president instruct Republican governors to continue to implement the law until there is a replacement. Well, everybody's bound by the law as long as the laws in effect. I think the important thing again is for real about partisanship to happen for Democrats to work together with Republicans. President Trump called the ruling fantastic, but with appeals certain the White House said the law remains in place for now supporters of British Prime Minister, Theresa may dampen suggestion Sunday that the government's planning a second referendum on whether to leave the European Union, arguing another Brexit vote would exacerbate divisions.
