"When a presidency ends the national archives and record administration's work begins. That's an agency that plays a key role in transferring millions of records and artifacts from the departing white house. And they even archive. The twitter accounts. Now belong to a previous administration. The national archives technically has to preserve president trump's tweets. But how exactly do you do that when he's no longer on the platform to begin with well. If you think trump's upset about getting impeached imagine felt the other day when twitter announce that they're permanently suspending his account. A lifetime ban. Explain is quint ford. Year reporter politico. Hey quint hey tony. Thanks for having me so tell me what happens. Typically when president leaves office maybe. When barack obama left office what happened to his tweets. Sure this all goes back to something. Called the presidential records act of nineteen seventy eight presidential records serve as a vital resource for the researchers and historians who document our nation's history. These documents provide insight into how and why critical decisions are made at the highest level of our democratic government. And at the end of the obama administration it was decided that the tweets and social media postings from these accounts such as at podesta which he'd seen on twitter. The presidential official facebook account are going to be preserved. As part of presidential wreckers. Got it okay. So what's the big deal with trump in particular the big deal with trump. Is that as you said real. Donald trump is no longer on twitter. And the way nahra which is the acronym for the national archives and records administration likes to preserve. These tweets is by making an archived account of them on twitter.

Scoop: Kids' border surge expected to last 7+ months

"I Heart radio. You're listening to the daily dive on use radio. Tell you f L, A welcome back to the Daily Dive Weekend edition. Finally, for this week, the surge of migrants of the border continues as expected to possibly less seven months as projections for September by Customs and border protection is anywhere from 22,000 to 25,000 migrants crossing the border. The administration is trying to get control over the situation. But the message is not reaching migrants and smugglers. Reuters recently spoke to over a dozen self identified smugglers to see how and why unaccompanied minors are crossing the border. In many cases, these smuggling operations can cost thousands for the migrants as they're transported by a variety of ways, even by plane. For more on how these smugglers air getting it done will speak to Laura got Steiner, Reuters correspondent based in Mexico, But some of the migration that we're seeing in context I mean, for a number of years Now we've been seeing an increasing number of families and Children coming from Central America. This is something that we saw under the Obama administration to the Trump administration and now under the five in administration. As you mentioned as well. Migration trends tend to be seasonal. So migration tends to pick up in January and February and then go through until you start to get the sub warmer summer months, And then it becomes more dangerous. So you know, it is definitely the case that there are more Migrants, particularly families and unaccompanied Children traveling to the U. S border than we've seen in previous months at the same time, you know, we saw a huge increase in the number of families and unaccompanied minors as well coming in 2019. So this is something that Really spans a number of different U. S administrations from both parties we wanted to speak is as you mentioned two smugglers to understand the trends of how these Children are getting to the U. S. Border. Because it certainly striking. Of course, as you hear stories of unaccompanied Children, Children without their parents or their legal guardians, including some very young Children arriving to the borders we wanted to understand, you know. How are they traveling? Who were they traveling with? How much does it cost for them to be traveling? And where are their parents? Because I think there's often this sense that the parents are all in Central

US Officials To Hold Talks in Mexico & Guatemala on Migration

"Migrants coming to the U. S border. Thousands of unaccompanied teens and Children in U. S custody, some held in jail like facilities. More likely on the way. This is the urgent situation facing President Biden at the border today and an echo of the one he faced as vice president back in 2014. His approach so far is similar focus on the root causes. Today, he sent three top officials to Mexico and Guatemala to discuss how to manage the increasing numbers of people trying to reach the U. S. Joining us to talk more about this is Franco or join us and Przybyl, White House correspondent and Franco first tell us just the basics of this trip to Mexico. Well, I think this is a trip that really shows how urgent the situation really is. Most of the migrants to the U. S border are from three Central American countries. Mexico had been working with the former administration to keep them from making that journey through Mexico, but that largely stopped. Biden is now sending two top officials from the National Security Council and another from the state Department to the region. Roberta Jacobson. She will be leading talks with Mexico's foreign secretary, Marcello Abroad and other top Mexican officials. She was actually an ambassador to Mexico during the Obama administration, and she'll be joined by one Gonzales, the NSC senior director for the region. Now they'll be talking about how to manage the situation and also be exploring a joint development strategy for Mexico and the Northern Triangle countries, you know, trying to work together to address the root causes of migration. Let's take one example. Guatemala What's on the agenda there? Welcome. Salas, again from the NSC and Ricardo Zuniga from the State Department will travel to Guatemala to meet with president they part of the President Alejandro Giammetti and his foreign minister, Pedro Barolo, and other economic and security officials. They will also meet with representatives from the private sector and civil society groups. You know, the big picture here is that President Biden feels that security and prosperity in Central America Are closely linked to security and prosperity in the United States. Give us some context here in terms of how Biden waiting when he was vice president, and maybe what he's doing differently this time around as president. Well, his vice president, Biden led a similar effort to Rio to address the root causes of migration. It was called the Alliance for Prosperity, and it provided a billion dollars to help police training, judicial reform and and corruption. This time around. He wants to offer $4 billion. Now I talked to Andrew Seeley about this. He's the president of the Migration Policy Institute. He said Biden is finding out the hard reality about this challenge that faces all presidents. And that it's not easy. The border is to immigration politics with the Middle East is to foreign policy. You know, every president comes in determined to do something focus on a different part of immigration. And ends up sucked into the border in some way. Frankly, Biden now owns this issue and the political fall out in a way that he didn't when he was just the vice president and one big difference in his approach this time is that the administration is going to be a bit more clear eyed about the realities of corruption at the highest level of these governments and Central America. The administration says they will on Lee give the money to community and international organizations. How has the Biden administration responded to criticism from Republicans who are claiming that Biden triggered this influx of migrants by reversing some of the restrictive immigrant immigration policies? Of President Trump's, You know, it's been a difficult thing to answer. On the one hand, the bind Administration says Look, we're going to have a more humane policy and going to rebuild the asylum system, which was largely dismantled by the former administration. On the other hand, they're saying Don't come now. And there's a sense that that message is a little bit muddied. The White House insists they've been clear they point to the thousands of radio ads and targeted social media ads in the region that they say have reached millions of people. But the numbers of people coming to the border are still high. And while the administration says that most people are turned away Children or not, and some families are not as well. And will Biden visit the board? Well, he said yesterday that heals go at some point, but there's no sense that that will happen in the near future. That's NPR.

I mean he created a toxic work environment not just for the women s but for the men that worked for him to. But we'll get to that. Yes chalet recording on national women's day last year we were on a boat celebrating international women's day with an all female crew for the first time it was amazing and i wish we were back on that boat. We were in a bubble of just being pampered and surrounded by powerful women and it was amazing until covid happened in. it wasn't so amazing and instead of being surrounded in a bubble. We were worried that we were surrounded by five. Rhys but i i was worried. They were gonna cut seattle off because trumpet actually made sounds like well we just isolate seattle. It will spread. We all know how that turned out and happy international women's day. I guess we can start out with some good vibes because today on international women's day joe biden has signed Two executive orders geared toward promoting gender issues. The first executive order establishes a gender policy council within the white house and it's Reformulating that office from the obama administration that was disbanded by trump. But this one is going recognizes. That discrimination happens to both genders. So i think that's a positive thing and we hope that that will lead to more equality not just in the united states but around the world and then the second executive orders directed at the department of education and it Reverses the controversial rule on campus sexual assault and harassment that was issued last year by betsy devos. Donald trump's education secretary. So these are two Positive advancements and we will applaud those with some good vibes and biden also signed an executive order About election rights. And so we'll get into that a little bit more than we talk at the end of the show about. Hr one We can't count on executive orders to save us. But at least women who are on college campuses or more protected now because of that executive order and i am really glad that biden chose to do it today. Yeah we're gonna go from good vibes to pet peeves. I decided Section called pet peeves because this has been highlighted in the news. And it's really annoying me. People miss naming the george floyd trial. It's not george floyd trial. It's derek chauvin trial for the killing of george floyd and we should know derek chavez name as a murderer that he is and when you miss name it and call it. George floyd it places the blame on the victim and causes more pain to the victim's family and misses the point. I think we need to hold. Derek chauvin accountable and make his name famous for being murderer. I think it's the perfect example of a micro aggression that even progressives make without thinking about it and when ted bundy headed trial. We didn't name his victims. We didn't say it was the kimberley trial. It was ted bundy trial. But in this case. I think this is one of those little deep seated things that we don't think about until someone like you pointed out like i hadn't thought about it until i read it in today's research but i hadn't even. I didn't even in all fairness i didn't know the trial was starting so i didn't even know that but we'll do hell no hell of a time finding jurors so the 'cause the videos out there like the Selection process started and then it was halted. There's some concern about whether it's going to be a second degree or a third degree murder charge. So yeah they. They were going to add the third degree murder charge to make sure he doesn't get off on a manslaughter charge. Just go to jail for three years.

Biden Administration Gears Up For A Showdown With Big Tech

Biden Administration Gears Up For A Showdown With Big Tech

"Up for a big showdown with Big Tech. He's reportedly hiring too outspoken critics of Amazon, Facebook and Google for influential roles in the administration. They've both pushed for the government to get much more aggressive at reining in these tech giants even break some of them up. NPR Tech correspondent Shannon Bond has been following this, Shannon. What are these critics? A big tech that Biden is bringing on board? Who are they? So Biden has reportedly getting ready to nominate antitrust scholar Lena Khan to the Federal Trade Commission. And just last week, he added a lot of pressure Tim Wu as a tech policy advisor, who has advocated for breaking up Facebook and Scott, It's really hard to overstate just how big a deal these names are intact policy circles. They both have these very progressive views about monopolies and competition, and now they're potentially moving into these very influential roles as the government is investigating and suing the tact Giants. So we worked on tech policy in the Obama administration. He now says he thinks the tech giants have helped create a new gilded age, much like the robber barons did with their railroad and oil monopolies. Khan is just 32 years old. She made her name when she was still a law student for reading this groundbreaking paper about Amazon, and she's become the face of this approach that sometimes jokingly called hipster Antitrust. Okay, I think you're going to need to explain his hipster antitrust a little bit more. No con is critical of the current way that the government deals with monopoly power. You know, this is idea that the rules are really focused on when consumers like you and me get hurt. When we have fewer choices, we have to pay more for products and services. Tom says, you know, in the case of a company like Amazon. That doesn't address concerns that focus on other harms like those to the independent sellers who rely on the platform to make money, and she thinks Amazon should not be able to both operate this marketplace and cell is a competitor in that marketplace. Here's what she told NPR back in 2018 about the bind that puts sellers in that dependence means that Amazon gets too often call all of the shots. And I think that is often I'm quite harmful because that means Amazon can extract more and more from these cellars and that can affect the quality. And Khan has already been influential in Washington. She was advising this Big House panel on antitrust last year. They did this investigation. It found Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Google all have really unfair powers monopolies. And we should note that all four of those companies are NPR supporters. I mean, this approach is just so different from even a few years ago, compared especially to the way the Obama administration Treated big tech cozied up to Big Tech when Biden was vice president. That's right. I mean, I think cozy is exactly the description for the relationship the Obama administration had with Silicon Valley. You know, it wasn't that long ago, these companies were celebrated as innovators. But you know things really have changed. Of course, the Trump administration was hugely critical of these big companies. It sued Google and Facebook for antitrust violations that something we're expecting the Biden administration to continue and we're seeing criticism of tech from both sides of the aisle. Of course, there are some people from the Czech world taking positions with the Biden, an administration that happened under Obama. But you know the choice of people like Lena Con and Tim Wu, I think signals a tougher stance toward Silicon Valley and that the era of scrutiny and skepticism what we call the tech clash is far from over the tech clash.

"After weeks of wrangling the house is expected to pass this relief. Bill and with that. It goes to president biden for his signature. So the question here is no longer about politics. That's done it's about whether the us government can actually deliver this aid quickly and reliably. Let's go to abc's karen travers at the white house. Karen i guess it's not all done. Because i want to know. How is this going to play out today. Like how quickly could this all go down. They still have to cross the finish line. The white house is not going to get pinpointed. On what specific day or hour. But they want to sign this before the end of the week and brad march fourteenth sunday. Always been this deadline. That's been circled on calendars here at the white house and up on capitol hill. It's an unofficial deadline. They didn't have to get it done by sunday but they wanted to. Because that's been some of the federal unemployment benefits were set to expire and officials said that they did not want to have any gaps in that coverage. They didn't want to have those. Millions of americans miss even one paycheck like that the additional money. They were getting Just because congress had not gotten it together. Who's i get it so the house will pass this today. Then it's a question of how quickly they can send down from one end of pennsylvania avenue to this end of pennsylvania avenue. The white house says that the president will sign it as soon as he gets it Look for a signing ceremony. The this is a big deal. Efd if you want to quote president biden from back in the obama administration this his top priority. It's his first legislative win and they're gonna do it up and in. This is going to be a very big moment for them. How much money will people get care. Because it's not just even stimulus checks at this point. Sure that's the big one though. That's what everybody's been focused on. And because when you hear that and you think what is coming directly to me. Fourteen hundred dollars for americans making up to seventy five thousand dollars a year if you get up to eighty thousand dollars for a single income filer. That number gets a little bit smaller. So then for couples you get two hundred and fifty thousand it maxes out the income cap at one hundred and sixty thousand. The white house says that yes while that was more targeted than previous rounds of covid. Relief that it's still ninety. Eight percent of the people who got it the last time so they feel okay with that and one more thing. This plant is historic taken altogether. This plan is going to make it possible to cut child poverty in half. Let me say it again. Significant is will cut child poverty in half. But then it's you know other things to it's child tax credits. It's subsidies for childcare. This is really a bill that gives a significant amount of aid to lower income americans off. Let's go. I need the help my kids need to eat. And white house officials will say. This is a very big difference from the bills that were signed during the trump administration which they said gave money but to the wrong people that it was too heavily focused on businesses and corporations and that higher wage earners were getting money and didn't need it. It would be really nice to get a little support so that i don't become homeless. Still wanna see this money go to lower income wage earners because they feel that those are the types of people that one needed but to will also use that money and spend it on something not save it for later or invested the actually get it back into the economy. I'm wondering. Karen is that last mile of getting into the person's pocket like what other challenges the biden administration will face here. We heard about like dead people getting checks out very living people getting their checks way too late that unavoidable or is that something. The biden administration has plans for. Yeah i mean we even seeing experiences on my little street here in washington of some neighbor getting the other neighbors check and not understanding how supposed to get to the other neighbor. I mean there were a lot of glitches in the system. The irs and bureau of the fiscal service are building on lessons. Learned from previous rounds. He administration says that they are working overtime to make sure that there are as few glitches as possible. The first batch of payments will go to taxpayers who provided direct deposit in their twenty nineteen or twenty twenty returns. They wanna make sure that more people are doing this through electronic payments because that'll get out faster than the checks whether or not. He walks his signature on their life former. President trump demanded. Well we're we're doing everything in our power to expedite the payments and not to lay them. Which is why the president's name will not appear on the memo line. Checks are expected to go out by the end of the month. But brad officials are not going to say a date certain but they do know that people want them. There are really eager for them so march tenth. Today the expectation is just about three weeks. They could get these out. Say you

President Biden Faces Challenge From Surge of Migrants at the Border

"Keino. Young's about Biden's response to the growing number of Children showing up at the US Mexico border. So someone given how presidents Obama and Trump Dealt with unaccompanied minors when this New surge arrives with past few weeks. And Biden faces more or less. Similar challenge. What is his response? So almost immediately coming into office. You see, top administration officials saying, Well, look, we're going to approach the border with more compassion. We're going to make good on our campaign pledge of that. At the same time. They are also saying, Look, we cannot just flip the switch here. You have them actually discouraging migrants very publicly into interviews, saying, Do not make this journey North. That sounds quite contradictory, Be compassionate, But by the way the border is closed and don't even try to cross it. Well, let me explain how it's working on the ground. So this pandemic emergency rule that Trump had introduced a year before. Body administration is keeping it in place, which allows border agents to rapidly deport migrants who crossed the border. But the difference here with the Biden administration is they're actually not. Going toe apply it to Children who crossed the border. Interesting. They're not doing that now, And that is what they would say. Is there evidence of already, um or compassionate, humane approach? The fact that you're not rapidly turning away a child who would cross the Southwest border alone? So the administration is not expelling these Children, not forcing them back to their home countries. So what is it doing with these unaccompanied minors? So Michael as far as the process for the unaccompanied minors, it's actually a similar process that we saw in previous administrations that child once they cross the border. They were taken by a border agent to a border facility. They are only supposed to be there for 72 hours. Those facilities were designed for adults, not Children. And then from the border facility. They're supposed to be taken to a shelter managed by the Department of Health and Human Services until the government can locate their sponsor. But here's the issue up until last Friday. Those shelters managed by health and human services were actually at reduced capacity by almost 40%. That's because of the pandemic. Right. You have these shelters reduce the space so that you can spread people out in the midst of a pandemic. So what has happened is it's created this bottle neck if you don't have enough space. In the shelters that are supposed to hold the Children that then means that those Children are going to be in the facilities where they're not supposed to be along the border for a longer period of time. And when I talked to officials on the ground, they are raising alarm about this, and you even saw the Biden administration acknowledged this just this past Friday when they directed those shelters for Children to go back to the capacity that they had before the pandemic to create more space. But it really is starting to look like a similar challenge that we saw not only under the Trump Administration but also under the Obama administration. So to recap, binds, intend to create a more humane approach to what to do with unaccompanied minors is just bumping up against all kinds of challenges that air, making it difficult to not recreate. The same problems of Trump and Obama. And it also risk him now being accused of not making good on his campaign pledge of this more compassionate and humane approach to the border.

"Andrew to sixty four thousand paint your life celebrate the moments that matter most so. This is a good time. We're GONNA talk more about the the virus in reopening and all that stuff but let's talk about when we're talking about the way. The press sells stories. Let's talk about this story about this kid who was shot in Georgia. Okay I'm odd are Bere- I guess is pronounced and He was a guy. These two guys said that they thought he was a burglary suspect. There's video of them stopping him. He's running down the street. He looks like he's jogging They stop him with the guns because they think he's committed burglaries and it goes off screen but it looks like he's grabbed the gun and struggling with them and they shoot him dead. Okay now. Here's what a very interesting thing that you know pressing media. They try to paint the dead guy as a saint and he's a jogger and he's just not. I don't know I don't know the truth yet because it's very hard to get at the truth new situations and the people who are supporting shooters are saying. Well no he's a dishonest Guyanese record and he's with burglary suspect and they put out a video of him walking into a construction site. And My colleague Matt Walsh Said that's ridiculous. Guys go on construction sites all the time and I said that is one hundred percent correct. I do this all the time I mean. I don't know what it is. It comes with the testosterone. I see construction. I walk in and I look around. I do it all the time and I know a lot of guys who had in New York City. When they have fences in front of constructions they have holes cut in the fences. And you can go down the street and there are guys with their faces stuck in the holes guys like looking at construction sites so immediately immediately I got attack. Walsh was really under fire but I got attacked for saying what I said. Which was like yeah? This is not proof of anything and people wingers screaming at me over the daily wire neoliberal daily. Wire people you all. Have you all coordinate? Your ideas and your opinions and this and the official opinion crap if there's if there's an official opinion of the daily wire no one's told me I don't know anything about it and if I didn't agree with it I wouldn't say it. Okay this is the thing so I'm just telling the Information. But here's here's the thing that really bothers me okay. There are two sides to this one is there are about forty five murders a day. In the United States of America you tell murders murder. Local murder story becomes national. If if it has some if it represents something an issue that we should be talking about or it's just so elaborate and you know like spectacular like the OJ. Simpson killing that. We just want to find out about it. This is not the case this does not. There's no spate of killings of black people by white people miss country. Black people were killed by other black people. That's the issue if you WANNA talk about murder. The issue is the murder rate among black people by other black people. There's no movement to kill black people by white people and all this tunnel he coat black bodies things. It's all nonsense because the fact show that it's nonsense so the very fact that this is in the national news is immediately suspect as narrative. Okay and I know that makes right-wingers angry. I understand why that would make right. Wingers angry you saying. Why are we paying attention to this? Why are we paying attention to the fact They are one of our producers. Austin Stevens pointed out that in Georgia where they opened up they completely opened up. The Chinese flu rate is going down so they're locked in Plebeian locked place forever. Wasn't helping anything. So maybe they're distracting from that. So why why are we listening to this? And right wingers get angry and they start saying things. I keep hearing. I hear people saying things like hey you know if you walked onto a construction site without permission you know. That's I mean these are the same people who are telling you that if anybody tells you can't go to the beach during a health crisis the constitution is on fire but suddenly if you walk into construction site it's fine to shoot and then they say well if somebody points a gun at you you don't listen. Here's the thing. I am a hundred percent supporter of the Second Amendment. I support standard ground walls. I think black lives matter a scam. That was promulgated by the Obama Administration to to the police and distract from the failures of the Obama Administration. What the Hell is the defense in this case I? I mean I'm strong supporter of the Second Amendment and self. What's your defense? If every word these shooters says is true they're still guilty right if everywhere they say is true. We thought he was a burglar he was a burglar. He fought with us over the gun. You're still guilty. I don't know if that's manslaughter or murder or not. I'm not a up on the law that much that I would know which of those things it is. You can't hunt somebody down with guns. Who committed a non violent crime in another area? That is not the way this works so well. It's a citizens arrest. You can't make citizens arrest with guns for a non violent crime that happened in another area. Call the damn police. Whatever happened here. Listen I'm just saying I'm just saying I don't think this is a story about American racism. I don't think it's a national story. I don't think it's any of those things all. I'll show you some of the the creation of narrative in real time. I'll show you the nonsense. They do and I know we get angry about this but we're not going to become. We're not going to become what they say. We are just a fight with them. Right I mean. We're not doing the race thing. We're not going to become racist y because our philosophies based Christianity whether you're a believer or not is based on Judeo Christianity in which we know that men and women are made in the image of God and therefore we don't hate them for the way they made. Because we're looking at the image of God so we don't do that right and so I don't WanNa hear about this Demogra- it's demographics. This is garbage. I understand I do understand why people get upset but the right false for the stuff all the time they say X so we say why they say black we say white. No no if you go after guy with guns and he grabs the gun and shoot him. That's on you in no business. I don't care if this guy if this guy is in your home burglar in your home and you shoot him I would you know sure. What's he doing here all right but if three days ago he burgled somebody and you think this is the guy even if it turns out. You're right because it might turn out. You're wrong and you point a shotgun at him and blow him away in the ensuing. It's on you it's on you. There's no there's no defense I mean like I look. There may be facts. I don't know maybe maybe. There was a gunfight. Can't see everything that happened but the way it looks the way it looks. We should not be rushing to defend the shooter's because I don't even under I personally as strong second amendment guy as a strong anti black lives matter. I don't even understand what the defense is so I just hate to see right. Wingers sucked into this. A lot of right wingers was saying this. I go and check them out on twitter and they've got zero followers so clearly. It's a false You know it's a false twitter Handle that they're using to start the stuff for all we know that left-wingers just trying to make right wingers look bad and get right into a fight. I don't know what's going on and look you. Listen to this stuff I mean. Here's the Atlanta mayor. Kisha bottoms sick. Bring her take on this. You can watch the narrative be shaped in real time. This was cut sixteen with the rhetoric that we hear coming out of the White House in so many ways. I think that many who are prone to being racist Are Given permission to do it. In an overt way that we otherwise would not see in twenty twenty because you have to remember. Jay You know in cities across his country even if local leadership fails there was always the backstop of our Justice Department to step in and make sure that people are appropriately prosecuted. But we don't have that leadership at the top right now so really. I mean the minute this went to the state the the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. The minute went to the state law officials whose thirty hours thirty six hours till these guys were arrested. Okay it got stuck in this kind of small town where everybody seemed to know. Everybody else guys were accusing themselves. They'd worked with these guys. You know the minute went to the state so if it's trump's fault that this guy got shot if trump's for this guy got shot and the black lives matter started under Obama was it Obama's fault when people got shot. Then you know I mean what you know. What are the mayors of these little towns blaming Atlanta's not a little town. Where the mayors of these towns get off blaming trump for everything that happens. I let me. I'll play play one more cut. Eighteen is the vanderbilt professor. Jonathan mets would say that the bigger context here about the ways in which guns have been constructed as symbols of of white kind of white privilege in a way the ways in which guns particularly carrying guns in public like this. I'm has been constructed. As a as a way of kind of showing particular form of White Authority. I think provides a lot of the context a lot of these shootings that we're seeing particularly on the shooting. If life were just that guy would be hit in the face with a Pie. You know like soupy sales and the that life was just the guy would be talking back the tie with drip down the cream would fall into his chocolate streaks. I mean look when you hear this stuff. It is easy to lose your stuff. It is his easy to get angry at people taking an obscure murder. There's lots of murders. It's a tragedy. I'm not saying that's not a tragedy and note to the people involved. It's a deep tragedy but it doesn't say ANYTHING ABOUT AMERICA. It's not part of a movement. It's not part of a a an issue that we have. It's part of something that only was invented by the Obama Administration to look back on lynching which was a real thing to distract from their incompetence. And you get angry but don't get stupid okay. Because that's what they want you to do all right. Let us talk this. This is important. I you gotTA listen to this.

Obama not the fast and furious scandal not the IRS. Gamble the scandal. Now that they're not covering of Obama's obvious the obvious malfeasance among his intelligence operations which according to Andy McCarthy Obama had to know about he had to know they were doing this he had to know. This was a setup this this is a tremendous scandal tremendous threat to our policy a tremendous tremendous threat to our freedom. Nothing trump said to the Ukrainian president is a threat to your freedom. Nothing is going. GonNa take anything out of your pocket. Nothing is going to make it harder for you to speak politically like the. Irs Scandal. Did so I always tell you you. Tomorrow's news today right and that's nine months ago. Not only that when they appointed muller in two thousand seventeen I think when they appointed Muller Special Counsel I said this is the first big mistake of the trump administration. This is absurd. It's going to drag this out now. We know that Muller was only appointed to hide and rationalize what the Obama Administration had done. What the FBI had done the FBI had made a terrible mistake. They had blown up this trump Russian collusion thing. It was obviously going to blow up in their face. They sent Muller into stretch it out and that's why they went after. Michael Flynn. They went after. Michael Flynn takes. Say Oh no. This isn't a nothing burger. Look we just. We just convicted. Michael Flynn now. The Justice Department is throwing this out. Why do I know these things? Okay I know. Obviously nobody really knows the future but why do I hit? These things is because I'm paying attention to the one thing that matters about every new story. How the story is told and the fact that the story is told. Why are they talking about Ukraine? Why are they talking about this stupid phone call instead of talking about Obama Gate? Everything you every all the information you get is comes to you through narrative distortion..

Something different. But it was at the end of the day a giant expansion of Medicaid. It's why when the Republicans were looking at the repeal and replace of ObamaCare governor Holcomb was adamant that the Medicaid reimbursement be cut because this is a giant expansion of Medicaid. It's why a couple of weeks ago and governor Holcomb was talking about there being more revenue coming in. But all the money's taken up. You talked about two things Medicaid expansion and DC est- permanent child services. If if hip two point oh was this free market who's your based solution? Why.

"Is based on four principles protecting the homeland by restricting immigration not a surprise for donald trump uh pressuring trading partners so that we are in a better position with our trading partners again nods surprise with donald trump building up the military not a surprise and otherwise increasing us global influence and again not a surprise but one of the things that he did do that was very clear was he made him a change that i think is noteworthy from the obama administration and that is the he stopped shying away from the use of the word g hot us or islamic jihad us or islamic terrorists the at my obama administration had decided that it was wisest not to ever talk about those things straight away obama what talked about terrorist but he wouldn't put the word islamic with it and he didn't use the word g hottest because jihad is an islamic word and so he avoided that altogether well trump has changed that position and and i think quite intentionally quite permanently so we will in our national dialogue now see references to islamic jihadist terrorists in a way that obama never would have allowed to happen and i wonder what you think about this you know the concept of manipulating words and choosing which words you will use or you won't use is an interesting concept and and i want to hear what you think about it there's a similar story that was out last week and you probably heard about it and that is that the trump administration had a number of journalists into the cdc in atlanta that is the centers for disease control and prevention and the the journalists were told that the cdc officials had been advised by the administration that they were not tsa use certain words so while trump is going back to the use of the word jihadist his administration has also asked the certain words not be used the forbidden words are and this is interesting so listen to these 'cause they're going to amuse you in some ways a vulnerable is a forbidden word entitlement is a forbidden word diversity is a forbidden word transgender is a forbidden word fee this is a forbidden word and the last two really surprise me one is evidencebased and the.

"Outgoing obama administration the intelligence communities and of course the media because with all of this unmasking with all of the things that the obama administration was trying to find out about president trump and his campaign of course it was then leaked to the media also let's not forget by the way former president obama made a lastminute change to the way wiretapped intelligence is shared just eight days before he was out of office which they say may have contributed to the proliferation of leaks plaguing the trump administration it seems to me that the left democrats the obama administration they have been actively trying to torpedo president trump obviously from the very beginning very much by the way lake hillary clinton and the democrats i would say when after bernie sanders except for the obama administration to me it's much more sinister to obama administration officials also according to this scrambled in a regular politics scrambled to spread classified intelligence related to russian meddling in the 2016 election to as many people within the us government is possible because they wanted to ensure that this intelligence would get to the media so this intelligence would get to the american people so this intelligence would derail everything that president trump was trying to do because obama a new that obamacare was a complete and utter failure he knew that president trump was going to try an undue a lot of the things that president obama did and that's why i would say president obama and his minions wanted to do whatever they could to derail president trump and to occupy the office of the president with as many investigations as possible so that they would not be able to focus on what the president of the united states donald trump wanted to do and campaigned on which was of course you know do something about daca repeal and replace or repeal obamacare and it goes on and on balance the budget tax reform everything that president trump wants to do his band quite frankly i would say not going to say derailed because things are really looking up for president trump but again it is certainly bennett distraction and to me that was what the previous obama administration certainly wanted to do again obama administration.
