Merrick Garland Confirmation Hearing For AG

"But today is all about Merrick Garland. He'll appear before the Senate to take questions from lawmakers for the position of attorney general. Most people know Merrick Garland's name because of something that didn't happen. Garland never got a hearing after President Obama nominated him to serve on the Supreme Court five years ago. Here's NPR justice correspondent Carrie Johnson. Merrick Garland has devoted nearly 45 years to the law. But he didn't start out that way is, he told Professor Martha Minnow at Harvard Law School in 2016. Why don't you go to law school in the first place? Chemistry, well chemistry and math. Garland had planned to become a doctor. He wanted to help people one on one, but his collision with the hard sciences spun him toward the law, where he's looked for that sort of direct connection ever since. In the mid 19 eighties. At his law firm in Washington, Garland became a rising star. He made time for a young college graduate who worked in the copy center to Randy Thompson says Garland reviewed one of his papers, photocopied it and rearrange the paragraphs. That was the beginning of In essence and becoming a riding coach. For me, it was just extraordinary experience and became my coach. Eventually, my mentor and 30 something years later, a friend. Eventually Garland Road, MMA reference for law school and has kept in touch ever since, Thompson says garlands Still a little old school still humble, still looking to help. The only thing that really has changed about him, And I guess me as well is the color of hair. I don't know, well respected judge as attorney general. Help get the department under the quagmire of partisan politics that many people think it devolved to under President Trump and Attorney General Bar That's Georgetown law professor Paul Butler. He says the DOJ has been reeling from political scandals and racing to confront the threat from homegrown extremists. Merrick Garland has faced both before. After clerking on the Supreme Court. Garland took a job as an advisor in President Jimmy Carter's Justice Department. In those years after Watergate, DOJ struggled to separate partisan influence from law enforcement and establish new boundaries for the FBI. Garland also played a bit part in some of the biggest investigations of that era from political corruption to national security that Garland says later turned into hit movies. American Hustle about the Abscam case. Argo about the ex filtration of hostages in Iran and the most important the miracle on ice. Which was about the Lake Placid Olympics, where I did work on the security for the Olympics By the 19 nineties, Garland was prosecuting a violent gang that terrorized people in a public housing project. And helping build a case against DC's mayor Marion Barry. On drug charges Back inside Justice Department headquarters, Garland became the man to see for the hardest problems. The car bomb exploded outside of a large federal building in downtown Oklahoma City, Garland would soon travel to the site of the most deadly domestic terror plot in American history. 168 people died in that bombing in Oklahoma. Former deputy Attorney General Jamie Go Relic remembers watching that day with Garland by her side, he basically said while watching Children being pulled out of the wreckage. That he had to go. He really wanted to go. We both had young Children at the time and What we saw on those screens was so affecting. Garland oversaw the search warrants protected the chain of evidence and insisted that reporters have access to court proceedings. We wanted somebody Who could make sure that the investigation was done by the book. And that any indictment was bulletproof. Prosecutors later convicted Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols for their role in that bombing. Former prosecutor Beth Wilkinson says Garland played an important role in other confrontations with extremists in those years, including a standoff with the heavily armed Montana free Men. One of the examples I can think of is sometimes and there were these stand downs where there would be, you know, arrest warrants for someone, or there would be some kind of controversy between people who were challenging the federal government. America's first instinct wasn't to go in and arrest everyone. It was to try and along with the FBI to see if there's a dispute could be resolved. Wilkinson says. The FBI went on to arrest those men later. She credited garlands, quick thinking and cool head that may have prevented a tragic outcome. Just about the only criticism Garland's nomination has drawn is in the area of civil rights. Garland is a moderate, so I don't see him as the bold and visionary leader or racial justice that some people were hoping for again. Georgetown law professor Paul Butler that he's not an ideologue is both discerning for people who want an attorney general. To meet this moment of national reckoning inspired by the movement for Black lives and the killing of George Floyd Butler says he thinks girls just from the White House long time civil rights advocate Wade Henderson says Garland is up to the task. But Henderson says it's a big one. The next attorney general, for example, has to do everything In his or her power to fight for voting rights. Police reform Criminal justice reform and LGBT Q equality. For the past 23 years, Garland has been a federal appeals court judge in that role, he doesn't have much of a chance to share his personal views. Carolyn Lerner, the chief mediator at the courthouse, says Garland took an early, an important lead to update policies that protect workers from sexual harassment and other misconduct. I think it's very clear that Judge Garland cares a lot about these issues, and he really wants employees to be happy and comfortable in the workplace, and when he was chief judge, he took his responsibility. To these employees very seriously, she says. Garland wants to continue another of his projects at the Justice Department tutoring sessions with a young public school student. This year. The judge is working with an 11 year old boy and his twin sister. Your mom is Andrea Tucker. He makes this so interactive for them and so much fun and they can't get enough of it. It's the kind of public service that Garland has always wanted to

South slammed by winter storm, millions left without power in Texas

"O'Dowd. This is here and now much of the country is in the path of a major winter storm today that is icing over roads, closing airports and causing rolling power outages for millions of Americans. Oklahoma City plunged to a record low six degrees below zero this morning. The last time I got even close to that cold was more than a century ago, Alana Roach to a reporter at the Texas Tribune woke up to an unfamiliar scene here. She is with her four year old daughter, Remmy and 17 month old son, Patrick. We are in Austin, Texas, on Welcome this morning to see what outside Ram Snow. Yeah. What do you want to do in it today? No angels and I'm Valley. No man's Yeah. How beautiful is our backyard? And that scared? It may look good. It may look beautiful, but it's also dangerous. Joining us now is Mark Elliott, a meteorologist and storms specialist at the Weather Channel based in Atlanta. Mark busy day Thanks for making time for us. Absolutely. You're not kidding. And then first let's focus in on Texas because we do not hear about snow and cold like that very often. How unprecedented have the conditions been in Texas? I mean, by all measures. This is just an incredible weather pattern that led to some incredible weather. That's really not done yet. I mean, as an example, you're just hearing from that family in the Austin area. They're gonna have single digit low temperatures when they wake up tomorrow morning, which is on Lee happened eight times in the long Recorded history of the Austin area. I mean, this is an impressive cold air outbreak by all measures and to see the snow across Texas. Very impressive as well. San Antonio officially had six inches of snow from this storm. Wow. Well, this has been going on for a few days because there was recently that terrible pile up around Fort Worth where nine people died on and now looks like every county in Texas is under a state of emergency. And we're seeing millions of people there who don't have power because of the burden on the power grid. It's just so great. So how dangerous is a storm like this? Yeah, I think it's a little bit under appreciated. How? How stress the body can get over When underneath these extreme cold conditions, You have to take all kinds of precautions. I mean, everyone was saying, you know, don't go traveling unless you absolutely have to, and I think most people are listening to that. But, you know, have blankets in the trunk of your car. In case you do get stuck somewhere Know where those extra blankets are in your house. In case you're you know, you lose power for an extended period of time. It is not a comfortable thing to go through. We'll put it that way, Right. And when windshields are that low in a place like Texas, where it doesn't happen very often, it might be worth it. For people to know. Like, what does it feel like? And how dangerous how long can you be exposed to that kind of weather? You know, and single digit temperatures like we are forecasting into central, even portions of southern Texas along with wind chills. That will be even colder than that when you could get frostbite outside in a matter of minutes, So, yes, it's fun, right? Do you have the kid? There's a fun side to this novelty of snow in Texas. But you do need to protect your skin. You need to make sure that you're Getting breaks and getting warmed up because you can really get hurt if you're out there too long. Yeah, And it is not just Texas. As we said neighboring Oklahoma. They've gone days now without getting above 20 F and even Seattle has gotten about a foot of snow. So how widespread is this system across the country? Yeah, A couple of different storms are rotating through what's a a bigger trough of low pressure across, say, the eastern two thirds of the country but then that Trump also extends into the Pacific Northwest. So that's the storm pattern. Storm's coming into the Pacific Northwest, diving very far south into you know, central or even southern Texas and then turning the corner going through the mid south and eventually into the Northeast corridor. So Everybody along that path is seeing ice or snow. Anyone north of that path is in the extreme cold air. And, yes, there is another storm waiting in the wings. So many of the same areas that we've been talking about are going to get snow again for the middle and end of the week, including North Texas. The Dallas area could see significant snow again. Little Rock could see significant snow Memphis could see significant snow. I mean, these are areas that don't get snow every season. So to be talking about it twice in one week is just one more example of how incredible this weather pattern really is. I mean, is it normal? I guess what you've been describing No, it's not normal, actually. So what's causing it all to happen? Yes, So there's there's a loaded question, right? Because weather will always happen and, you know, long term averages are made up of weather extremes on so it's winter. You're going to see winter weather, but you don't see this kind of winter winter weather every year, and a lot of people are like, Oh, it's so cold. You said climate change and global warming. There is a you know, ironic component to that that as the polls warm at different levels, it messes with the polar vortex. I'm sure people have remember hearing about that from a couple years ago as that slows down that strong corridor of wind around the Arctic that keeps that cold air locked up. It gets all kinds of wiggly and wobbly And that happens all the time. That polar vortex is always there. But this is an impressive wobble if you will. So all that Arctic air spilled into the lower latitudes where the U. S is and that cold air is, you know, we're really feeling the impact right now. Marc Elliot, the weather Channel. Thank you so much for your time.

It was actually quite a change compared to you know when we're in Carlsbad, it was kind of like some people some people care some people don't down here. Everybody's masked up. Actually I don't understand it because. In. Mexico you get sprayed with alcohol all the time. It was before the covert or my mistaking that. You know what? The one person that we've had an interaction with that was not a masked up was the realtor. We did we did speak with a realtor and we had an outdoor meeting and he was the only one that never even did the mask in the beginning part of it. And that voice you heard was, of course, spot help. How're you doing sir? I'm doing great. I'm actually out doors in the bay area because it's a beautiful day here and you know I I can't think of a better place to be right now because our heatwave is over fingers crossed for the moment and it's really nice and San Francisco.

Also with US returning to the show, he is America's foremost expert on panhandles. Please welcome Mr. Rubber read. Hello I anticipate lots of conversations about panhandles. So. Start which panhandle. It's been. Awhile since you've been on the show and you you are wearing now I am in Oklahoma state with a remarkable panhandle. I came back here about a year ago had been living in Vietnam for the year before that came back for family reasons and then ended up Getting all kinds of crazy fund job opportunities that Like six seconds before the quarantine and so now I'm here for a while and it's just been kind of a miraculous year for me really fortunate. I was really lucky for that. So working here in Oklahoma City about fifty four degrees. If we WANNA compare temperatures which feels very nice. Very nice Glad that the summer's over for sure it does get hot here. All right. Let's get into a couple of new stories before we talk some more Robert. I found this story on CNN I thought it was rather interesting We've talked about it in the past that candidate has basically closed the border to the US for practical purposes however. There are two little bits of America. Point Roberts Washington and Hyder Alaska. which are only accessible through Canada. So. You I mean, you could do it by the see I guess but as far as by land the the only way to get to these places is is through Canada and they're not very big places they're small communities, but basically, they're now kind of shut off from everything. They can't drive to the rest of the country. The rest of the country can't drive to them and. Canada is keeping the borders closed even for these two little things even though they're not connected to the rest of the country. It's kind of one of these odd things that people really didn't think about when they put a lot of these border controls defects. And there's an opposite version of this as well. Campobello island. which is in New Brunswick is can only is only connected to the rest of the world through a bridge to main. So they have kind of the same deal going on. If any of you ever been to hide her or point Roberts. You know. I have I mean Alaska has enough weird things going on including if I remember correctly a capital that you can't reach except. You can't reach it by car. Is that right? You can only get your car just has to be on a boat. Right So. Yeah. I. Mean I. I been there but and I've been to you know the The portion of the Lithuanian spit. That that. You Touch Canada. Yeah I mean it doesn't touch candidate, but it's got that whole Kaliningrad Oblast portion that theoretically you can't get to any other way except through you know one Poland or Lithuania and.

I did have this I of release I didn't WanNa have it. But it gave me guilty sense of satisfaction. It's like everybody could just exhale. We've all been holding our breath. And then it was like. Oh It's over. But then we came to realize it really wasn't over. You know. The reprecussions just. Never stopped. There still. Present And as we know just because convictions and sentences were handed down, doesn't mean the impact this tragedy had on those who lost their loved ones ended. One thing happened this is when Clinton was president. President Clinton was going to the dedication ceremony of. The Oklahoma City Memorial. So I get a call from one of the assistant directors on the detail say Ron, the president wants you to come with him. To Oklahoma City for the dedication and I just. I said Sir I haven't been back there since that day I just don't really want to do that. He's like he's like he's Kinda of taken back like well Ron really and then. Like I just it's not something to do and then. I. Got like three more calls from the supervisors and the last guy he was cool. I mean, he's like. What are people asking around? I said that tells me. He, said. He said, don't worry about that. You have to get on that thing I'm like, thanks. because. Here's the deal I would've I would've been there with the president of an arm around me or some bullshit like that, and then like all my friends around me and I, you know I just. Something I wanted to do there are probably a supervisor to that. We're probably not too happy with me through declining an invitation president.

"The horrific bombing in Oklahoma City brought the threat of domestic terrorism into stark relief. In the aftermath the FBI added many more agents to work domestic terrorism cases an Attorney General Janet Reno Created Special Task Force to investigate domestic terrorism but not surprisingly after nine eleven the dominant business of the FBI as well as every other federal law enforcement body became international terrorism for years after the September eleventh attacks. The supposed threat posed by al-Qaeda and other Muslim groups continue to drive policy and yet according to a twenty nineteen New York Times article as the machinery of government has focused on fending off threats of violence from the Middle East Pakistan and Afghanistan. It has not been paying attention to threats from within and in this atmosphere of willful indifference possibly deadly movement has grown and metastasized an FBI agent speaking in front of the House Homeland Security Committee in May Twenty nineteen revealed that since nine eleven more Americans have been killed by domestic terrorists motivated by far right ideology including white supremacy anti-government an antiabortion views then international terrorists. These include the August Twenty nineteen attack in El Paso Texas that killed twenty two people. That's been called the largest domestic terrorist attack against Hispanics in modern history in two thousand eighteen eleven worshippers were killed at a synagogue in Pittsburgh and who can forget the 2017. Horrific attack were fifty eight. People were gunned down at a Las Vegas outdoor concert. As for ninety style militia groups will according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

The use of property liens and citizens courts to harass their enemies and once popular militia conspiracy. Theories are making the rounds again. This time accompanied by nativist theories about secret Mexican plans to re-conquer the American southwest. The Southern Poverty Law Center says that authorities around the country a reporting a worrying uptick in Patriot activities propaganda on the centers website. It says this is the most significant growth. We've seen in ten to twelve years. All it's lacking is a spark. It's only a matter of time before you see threats.

"During the twenty minute ceremony officials placed a wreath in front of the building. Rescuers joined with their families and other onlookers who red roses onto the rubble. As the workers filed out industy hard hats and uniforms. Hundreds of people applauded for ten minutes. Workers kept their eyes downcast in some wiped away tears. Two and a half weeks later what remained of the Alfred. P Murrah building was demolished. Brought down by two strategically placed charges. The Oklahoma bombing shook the very foundations of security in America and things changed after that day on May Twenty First Nineteen Ninety five in response to the bombing. Us President Bill Clinton permanently closed the White House section of Pennsylvania Avenue to cars and trucks previously. Twenty six thousand cars a day pass by the White House. America's main street had been open since the beginning of the US Republic through four president assassinations and multiple wars. But not anymore to improve White House. Security eleven steps were taken including putting in more bulletproof glass in the White House. Windows and traffic behind the White House was also blocked off. Meanwhile the search for John Doe number two continued for about two months after the bombing. People were scared. What if he was planning a second attack? Many false alarms of someone being questioned or arrested were reported by the media the F. B. I. received over fourteen thousand tips. A second more detailed sketch was released. In some speculated that it might be Terry Nichols Husky twelve year old son but then in mid June two months after the bombing the FBI quietly announced that John Doe number two had been found and they concluded he wasn't involved in the Oklahoma City bombing. John DOE number. Two was actually an innocent army private from the nearby base at Fort Riley. Who just happened to be at the Ryder truck rental at the same time as McVeigh but there were other people who would be implicated in the tragedy during the two years. That McVeigh plan the bombing. He visited several times with another army. Buddy Michael Fortier and his wife Lori. They shared his anti-government ideas and on more than one occasion mcvay described to the forty years. What he planned to do they didn't help. Mcveigh like Terry Nichols did. But they did nothing to stop the attacks or warn authorities. Mcvay also wrote a letter to his sister just before the bombing warning her that something big was about to happen. She two did nothing to intervene. Jennifer McVeigh and Lori Fortier both received immunity in exchange for testifying against McVeigh at his trial. Michael Fortier also testified against mcvay in a plea agreement. He pleaded guilty to gun charges and received a twelve year jail sentence fortier admitted he transported stolen guns with McVeigh that were sold to finance the bombing forty or was released from jail in two thousand and six after serving. Ten Years Terry Nichols was eventually charged in connection with the bombing and in December nineteen ninety-seven following a federal trial. Nichols was found. Guilty of conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction and eight counts of involuntary manslaughter. In the deaths of eight federal employees. He was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole Nichols was then charged on state charges of murder in two thousand four. He was convicted on one. Hundred and sixty one counts of first degree murder but the jury was deadlocked on whether he should receive the death penalty and so he was sentenced to one hundred and sixty one consecutive life sentences with no possibility of parole. On June second nineteen ninety-seven Timothy McVeigh was found guilty. On eleven federal charges including conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction and eight counts of first degree murder. He was sentenced to death. The victims of the Oklahoma City bombing have been given not vengeance but justice and one young man met. The Fadi chose for himself six years ago for the survivors of the crime and for the families of the dead. The pain goes on final. Punishment of the guilty cannot alone. Bring peace to the innocent. It cannot recover. The loss or balanced scales entered is not meant to do so today. Every living person who was hurt by the evil done in Oklahoma City can rest in the knowledge that there has been a reckoning June. Eleventh two thousand and one. Mcveigh was executed by lethal injection at a federal prison in Indiana. He spent the final hours before his death watching television sleeping and eating two pints of mint chocolate chip ice cream which was his final request. Ten members of the victims families and survivors of the bombing. Watch the execution from a room. Beside the death chamber other survivors and family members of the Victims Watch the execution through a closed-circuit television feed more than six hundred fifty miles away in Oklahoma City McVeigh didn't make verbal statement before the execution but in a statement he quoted a section of the poem invictus which reads in part. I am the master of my fate. I am the captain of my soul. This poem was written in eighteen. Eighty five and it's been quoted in the past by world leaders such as Winston Churchill and recited by POW's the Vietnam War and by Nelson Mandela. While he was in prison on Robben Island it has inspired many to remain STOIC invoke self discipline and fortitude in the face of adversity but mcvay twisted it to mean something much more sinister.

"On April. Twenty third four days after the bombing. A ninety minute prayer service was held at the Oklahoma State fairgrounds about two and a half miles away from the blast site. More than twenty thousand people stood in line for nearly three hours to pray with President Clinton and the evangelist Preacher Billy. Graham for the victims of the disaster the massive crowds spilled from the state fairgrounds arena to an exhibition hall and a Baseball Stadium. Where the prayer service was broadcast loudspeakers the anger. You feel this valid. But you must not allow yourselves to be consumed by it. The hurt you feel must not be allowed to turn into hate but instead into the search for justice after the service Clinton met with the mother of Little Bailee Almon. The baby who was photographed being carried out of the building in the arms of a firefighter. Clinton told Aaron Almond that he was sorry. His eyes brimmed over with tears as he hugged her. The next day Bailey was buried in a tiny white coffin covered with pink carnations white daisies and a pink ribbon. That read Miss Bailey. The stories of the dead. Children were absolutely heartbreaking. Two little brothers aged two and five. Who were buried in a coffin together? Because their family couldn't bear the thought of them being separated a four year old girl who was killed in the blast. She was at the building with her grandparents. Who were at the Social Security Office to fill out some paperwork? Her grandparents bodies were missing in the rubble. A mother who ran to the scene and frantically searched the area for her son. She had dropped him off at the Daycare Center that morning. She climbed the pile of debris in front of the building until rescue workers. Begged her to leave when our son's body was found and sent to a funeral home. Funeral director persuaded her not to look at his body. Because it was too badly mangled. After the prayer service rescuers continued their work using jackhammers and chainsaws to remove a three meter. High pile of rubble pancaked on the area nine floors of concrete steel rods air ducts. Electric cables and furniture were telescoped into an area of the basement. Now called the pit by firefighters as they got closer to the rubble from the daycare center. They began to uncover children's shoes pieces of clothing and coloring books. With every step rescuer stumbled and fell. They wore through kneepads and boots during a two hour shift as they cleared one area they race to shore up leaning walls and collapse ceilings with huge pieces of timber and steel girders. It was a massive task that seemed never ending and with every new discovery. More Soro.

"When McVeigh registered at the Dreamland Motel in junction city. Kansas five days before the bombing he gave a home address of Decker Michigan. That address led agents to a farm belonging to James Nichols James. Had a brother named Terry Nichols who used to live on the farm as well but had recently relocated to Kansas? Both James and Terry had links to a paramilitary group called the Michigan Militia. The same day McVeigh was arrested. The Nichols brothers. Were also taken into custody for questioning and held as material witnesses before we continue with the story of the Oklahoma City bombing. Let's take a second here to talk about. American militias there at the center of this story and these extremist anti-government groups were a growing phenomenon in the US. In the ninety s I already mentioned the deadly raid by federal officials in Waco Texas in Nineteen ninety-three but there was also one in Ruby Ridge Idaho in Nineteen ninety-two in that case things went horribly wrong when ATF agents and US marshals went to arrest right wing activist Randy Weaver for selling illegal weapons weaver's wife and fourteen year old son along with a US marshal were killed during an eleven day standoff at the family's remote cabin weaver eventually surrendered but the actions by agents at Ruby Ridge along with the deadly siege at Waco outraged fringe segments of society which included militia groups members of those groups fervently supported gun rights and many had a burning hatred for the government. They call themselves patriots. And we're prepared to defend the country against its own leaders among their concerns was the belief that the government planned to wage a war against citizens who refused to give up their guns the Michigan militia. Who the Nichols brothers had been linked to was one of the most prominent of these groups and during the nineties reportedly had up to ten thousand.

"More than a city block away from the Federal Building. Investigators found a rear axle. That they believed was part of the truck that carried the bomb. The force of the explosion sent two hundred and fifty pounds of twisted metal rolling through the air it landed on the hood of a parked car narrowly missing three people that. Axel was stamped with a vehicle identification number so investigators were able to quickly trace it back to a Ryder rental agency. Two hundred and forty five miles away in junction city Kansas agents race to that shop but found the license used to rent. The truck was a fake but the owner of the writer agency was able to provide enough of a description so that composite sketches of two suspects were prepared on April twentieth. The sketches of John Doe Number One and John Doe number two were released to the public and authorities confirmed they did not appear to be Middle Eastern and the owner of the writer. Agency said they didn't speak with accents. Attorney General Janet Reno announced a two million dollar reward for information leading to arrests in this case investigators in junction city. Kansas interviewed everyone in town. Hoping anyone else had also seen the two men they went to the dreamland motel and asked if anyone matching the sketches had stayed there the manager remembered a man who looked like John DOE Number One. They checked records in this time. John DOE number. One had not used an alias. He signed the Card Timothy McVeigh. Meanwhile McVeigh was still sitting in Noble County jail in Perry Oklahoma and he was just hours away from a scheduled arraignment that could have resulted in his release on five hundred dollars. Bail for the gun and traffic charges but before that could happen the FBI traced mcvay to the jail cell in Perry and contacted authorities with instructions. Not Release Him. Attorney General. Janet Reno broke the news to awaiting nation director. Freeh and I have just spoken with the president and I am pleased to announce that one of the individuals believed to be responsible for Wednesday's terrible attack on the mirror of federal building. In Oklahoma City has been arrested. Timothy McVeigh aged twenty seven who we previously call John Doe Number One. The man with the Light Brown crewcut was arrested by local authorities on a traffic violation about sixty miles from Oklahoma City on Wednesday morning. About an hour and a half. After the explosion occurred at the time of his arrest. He was in the possession of a firearm. He has been in the local jail since the arrest he will be taken into custody by the FBI searches are being planned and executed at several locations around the country this afternoon. I remind everyone that John Doe number two remains at large. He should be considered armed and extremely dangerous. There is a strong likelihood that other persons are involved in this tragedy as well in the county jail and Perry Oklahoma. Fbi agents arrested McVeigh. He was transported in handcuffs and leg irons from the small jail to a waiting van. That took him to a helicopter that would take him back to Oklahoma City for an arraignment when he emerged from the courthouse in Perry Oklahoma. It was the first time the world saw the face of the man accused of this horrible act of terrorism. He was dressed in is orange prison jumpsuit and showed no emotion as a crowd of at least two hundred fifty people booed and shouted baby killer and bastard as he was led to a waiting van.

"When the Sun came up on April Twentieth Downtown Oklahoma City still looks like a war zone. Every single street was littered with broken glass.

Weary firefighters continue to search anyway vowing to stay on the job until they had explored every cavity might sustain human life. The search was a painfully slow version of an old fashioned fire brigade one bucket out of time. Rescuers cleared the rubble bypassing. Plastic buckets along human chains that snaked back to wheelbarrows at the end of the line the FBI agents waited to sift each load for possible evidence as they burrow deeper. They began finding limbs pieces of bodies and clothing while search and rescue operations continued. An intensive hunt began for whoever was responsible for the bombing unaware that he was actually already in custody in Perry Oklahoma following that traffic. Stop on thirty. Five state Governor Frank Keating couldn't comprehend who could commit such a horrible act of violence the vicious animals that did this. Their crimes are unspeakable. They're against humanity their unforgiving. This is a what is behind us is a is a is an act wasn't active unspeakable horror and tragedy in Washington. President Bill Clinton learned about the explosion from his press secretary at about ten thirty. Am on the day of the bombing. Just as the president was beginning an Oval Office meeting with the Turkish Prime Minister. The White House Chief of staff left the meeting about a half an hour later with instructions from President Clinton to call Attorney General Janet Reno and make sure that federal agencies were coordinating their responses and had all the resources they need it proceeded on the theory that it was a terrorist attack against the government and Raya Federal Law Enforcement Officials Emergency Management personnel and military forces were dispatched to Oklahoma City in an operation that constituted one of the biggest responses to a crime in American history. The Firearms Bureau said national. Emergency teams to coordinate the examination of the bomb site the analysis of the explosives and the search for fragments of the vehicle in which they believe the bomb was planted. The FBI sent four special agents to manage the investigative operation and a twenty four hour. Fbi command center with four hundred telephones was established in Oklahoma to coordinate the work of explosive teams. Bomb technicians and portable scientific gear. Used to analyze chemical residues. The president later dispatched the head of FEMA to Oklahoma City on the afternoon of the attack. President Clinton left the Oval Office periodically to watch news reports from the scene on TV in his secretary's office. He was troubled by what he saw especially the pictures of children. Who'd been killed? He also discussed the situation with Oklahoma's governor and members of the state's congressional delegation later. He wrote remarks in Longhand then went to the White House. Briefing Room at about five fifteen pm to deliver his remarks to the waiting reporters the bombing in Oklahoma City was an attack on innocent children and defenseless citizens. It was an act of cowardice and it was evil the United States will not tolerate it and I will not allow the people of this country to be intimidated by evil cowards. He was joined at the news conference. By attorney. General Janet Reno who was grilled by reporters over who might be responsible for the attack twisted. That happened on the second anniversary of the pursuit again. We are pursuing all leads. We cannot tell exactly what happened or who is responsible and it would be better not to comment until we can conclusively talk about it. Does anyone called to claim responsibility for this? Any credible group again. I don't think that I should comment on the evidence because to do so would hinder. The investigation was a car-bomb again. I cannot confirm any evidentiary leads that we're pursuing because I think that would hinder the investigation mother government or governments or would military retaliation the appropriate media. I don't think that we should deal with what ifs. I think. We should make sure that those people who are responsible and pursued and brought to justice at this point authorities simply didn't have any solid leads or suspects so investigators considered two possibilities. The I was put this bombing in fact be linked to the WACO seizure since the blast occurred on the second anniversary of the fiery ending to that siege if you're not familiar role in nineteen ninety-three local ATF. Agents attempted to raid the compound of the branch Davidians in Waco Texas looking for illegal explosives agents ended up in a gunfight fight with members of the cult then following a fifty one day standoff the Fbi tear-gas the compound and the Davidians set multiple fires more than eighty people were killed in the flames including twenty two children. The aggressive response by federal agents triggered criticism from right wing militia groups and other anti government factions. Some law enforcement officials. Thought it was possible. They had something to do with the bombing in city but others disagreed. They thought there was no way. The branch Davidians or militia had the technical expertise to build such a massive bomb. The second possible cause focused on the chance that the attack had been the work of Islamic militants like those who bombed the World Trade Center in February nineteen ninety-three but if that were the case it was unclear why they would target Oklahoma City. Some middle groups held meetings there and the city was home to at least three mosques but of the estimated five million Muslims in the US in one thousand nine hundred ninety five very few actually lived in Oklahoma City several news organizations including CNN reported that investigators were questioning several men described as being Middle Eastern in appearance to in Dallas one. In Oklahoma City and another in London England some Arab American organizations expressed fear of backlash and said it was unfair to implicate Muslims without any evidence in the confusion following the bombing. Investigators really struggled to find a solid lead. Then they got a break would eventually take them down a completely different. An unexpected path.

"Shortly after the blast a twenty five year old bank employees in the area started taking photos of the horrific scene he quickly went to Walmart to have them developed and the photos he captured caused the three clerks at the photo desk. To start weeping you probably remember the images snapped by this amateur photographer. Like the one of a police sergeant who pulled a baby out of the rubble handing her to a firefighter or the one of a firefighter carrying the limp body of the blood soaked baby girl at his arms within hours. Those photos were transmitted on the associated. Press a photo wire and by the next morning they were in newspapers around the world. Those images became a grim symbol of the bombing and some of the very first images that the world saw of this horrible event. The baby in the picture was Baylee Almon. She had turned one just the day before on April eighteenth. She didn't survive. She was pronounced dead at the scene and the days that followed the photographer. Charles Porter said he wished he never took the pictures and he couldn't even bring himself to pick up his camera again. He was worried that the photo had hurt. Bailey's family but soon he was introduced to the baby's mother and she said the photo had actually helped her. Aaron Allman said that she never would have known that her baby was treated so well. If those pictures hadn't been taken.

His actions didn't even lead to an uptick in other domestic terrorists. Trying to the same type of stupid shit he did thank God no noodle Mc dry wing was a total and complete failure. Anyone who thinks praises are in my opinion either seriously misinformed or racist ignorant anarchist fucking Dick Bex Noodle was veteran but he was not a patriot. He was a traitor.

Suck Timeline shrimp on those boots soldier. Were marching down a time SUCK TIME LINE. April nineteen ninety three mcvay heads for a farm in Michigan or Terry Nichols lifts. A farm owned by Terry's parents in between watching coverage of the Waco siege on TV Nichols and his brother began. Teaching McVeigh how to make explosives out of readily available materials specifically the combined household chemicals in Plastic Jugs my God. I asked us to try and make bombs to also know shit in the spring of Nineteen ninety-three and same time When I was struggling socially I was an awkward High School Sophomore. Leaving Las Vegas with my dad and step mom stepmom. I hated hated me. I left behind everything I knew. And riggins Idaho went to live with my dad in Vegas. After two years I was angry. Confused left alone with my very antisocial thoughts way too much. I was setting fires and Shit. I had like three friends three kids at school. Who Knew My name? Nobody else knew I was just a weird quiet kid. I was basically a trenchcoat mafia kid. Ninety three me. Identifies with ninety. Three McVeigh Nichols way too much. I wasn't angry government. I I was angry. The whole fucking world and I just wanted to watch burn Had the world fuck over looking back. no no more than the federal government had fucked over. Mcveigh Nichols when you're alone. An angry in the world doesn't make sense. You don't need rational reasons for an enemy. You just need an enemy something to focus your hatred on man. What a terrible head space to be in. Luckily my dad moved back to Riggins I- i- slowly snapped out of Sad that McVeigh Nichols never did. The destruction of the Waco compound enrage again McVeigh convinced him. He was time to take action. He suspected to cover up. He believed feds. It purposely set fire right. He saw disappearance of certain evidence such as bullet riddled steel reinforced front door. Too complex proof of the cover up. He believed the twenty-five Davidians. Were trying to flee when they were gunned down by the final battle Mcveigh's now fully radicalized right. He began to sell Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco firearms explosive hats riddled with bullet holes. He produces his own videos. Detailing the government's actions awake O hands out pamphlets with titles like us. Government initiates open warfare against American people. He begins changing his answering machine greeting every couple of weeks to various quotes by Patrick Henry. Such as give me liberty or give me death. He continues to experiment with pipebombs and other small explosive devices and sadly he's way better making this shit go boom than I ever was February. Twenty Eighth Nineteen ninety-four. The Brady Bill is passed. The act was named after James Brady assisted the president who was shot and wounded by John. Hinckley Jr. during an attempted assassination of Reagan on March Thirtieth Nineteen ninety-one the bill was seen as an affront to gun rights activists everywhere especially mcvay. He believes is threatened. His gun show livelihood. He's furious he stops associate with anybody who doesn't share his views like longtime boyhood friends. Steve Hodge who sent who who he sent the following letter those who betray or subvert the constitution or guilty of sedition and treason are domestic enemies and should and will be punished accordingly. It also stands to reason that anyone who sympathizes with the enemy or give aid or comfort to set enemy is likewise guilty. I have sworn to uphold and defend the constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. And I will I will because not only did I swear to but I believe and what it stands for every bit of my heart soul and bean I know in my heart that I am right in my struggle Steve. I've come to peace with myself. My God and my cost blood will flow in the streets. Steve Good Versus Evil Freeman versus socialist. Wannabe slaves prayed. Is Not your blood my friend? Can you find imagine if you got that letter from? What are your friends like some old friends from school?

Just so we can defy government restrictions on photography there. You don't tell me what your mom. He heads to Gulfport Mississippi to determine the veracity of rumors about United Nations operations. To pose going on there. He'd heard rumors that Russian tanks and troops were stage in there for an all out invasion of the US. This of course not true. The Russian vehicles on cy were being configured for use in UN sponsored humanitarian aid effort. He's completely out of his mind now. He's not a religious extremists. Like the weavers were with Ruby Ridge or corruption his followers in Waco but he is cut from the same cloth. He asserted in apocalypse of sorts is on the horizon. Wars coming the new world order about to attack America. He visits Waco again after the compounds burned. He makes a point to visit the ashes and rubble of what he saw martyrs and his mind. They were peers. When he sees Nichols again he puts his plans of mass murderer into motion in the summer of ninety four because they also compose his two letters to the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms. The first is titled Constitutional Defenders and the Second. Atf read in them. He denounced government officials as fascist tyrants in stormtroopers and warns ATF. All you tarantula. People will swing in the wind. One day your treasonous acts against the constitution of the United States. Remember the Nuremberg war trials now in his mind. Atf officers are fucking Nazis. He's living in his own Turner. Diaries influenced reality. He's also writes a letter of recruitment to a man named Steve Coburn. Who was a customer of his from his gun? Show days he writes a man with nothing left to lose a very dangerous man and his enemy. Anger can be focused towards a common righteous goal. What I'm asking you to do than sit back and be honest with yourself. Do you have kids and wife? Would you back out at the last minute to care for your family? Are you interested in keeping your firearm? For the current future monetary value or. Would you dragged at? Oh six threw rocks swamp and CACTUS. That ought six.

He determined that Seligman Arizona birthplace of route. Sixty six Was the least likely place to be in America. So he so he considered improperly.

"oklahoma city" Discussed on Timesuck with Dan Cummins

"In a couple of different configurations all made out of a thousand percent dog skin from many many dogs that have been sent out into fake space on various fake NASA tests over the years filmed in Burbank Studios. Jk OMG does have funds Okay so now is GonNa Topic. I'm really amped. Update it really. This really made me examine some old beliefs of mine are learned more than I did in almost any other. Really scrutinize this one. And I'm excited to share this info with all of you. Let's get into some crazy shit. Yip Yip. Y'All lot of interesting stuff to unpack here today. I'm going to go over. How the Oklahoma City bombing was connected to both Ruby Ridge in the branch Davidian Waco compound rate two topics. We've already covered over the ideology of the Patriot movement that the bombers identified with in the history of militias in America and one of two timelines today. The bombers were in a militia per se. But they Were very much. Ideologically connected with America's militia movement. I'm GonNa talk about horrible book. The Turner Diaries. I had not heard of a book that strongly motivated. Timothy McVeigh to bomb a federal building in Oklahoma City. This book has inspired many many acts of hatred. It will be the subject of today's idiots of the Internet. A layout many BIOS for Timothy McVeigh Terry Nichols and Michael Forte. The three men connected to the bombing. Then I'll jump into our second time line to cover the events that lead up to and through the bombing itself so just to sucks ago. We covered the Ruby Ridge. Standoff episode one seventy nine. Two years ago we covered the siege of the branch Davidians Waco Texas suck seventy five today suck directly related to both those events also. The topic provides me with an opportunity to clear up my overall view of the US government. I may not be quite as statist is I appeared to many of you in the Ruby Ridge suck. I do feel like citizens should have a healthy level of skepticism and distrust towards any governing agency while also employing when valid respect and gratitude for the many good aspects of the government. Don't forget the. Us military law enforcement first responders public school teachers professors groups. I've consistently thanked for the services. They provide these groups are also part of quote the government. So I've never hated the whole government and out any of you do either if you really step back and evaluate the government. Are you frustrated joke around? I don't actually want to burn Washington. Dc TO THE GROUND. Most because they don't have a concrete plan to build something better back up in its place easy to gripe much harder to fix today. Suck especially coming on the heels of the Ruby Ridge sock. Did really make me think about how I feel about our government in a deeper way that I had a longtime made me really reexamine my beliefs after re-examining one's beliefs You know I think that is a that is a very good thing to do from time to time like what. Why do you believe what you believe? You know. Because you've thought a lot about it looked at all sides of the issue and have arrived at a well thought out conclusion or because well just because you always have just? Because I don't know you just it's just what you do it and you don't really know what you told yourself her for years in the minds of the perpetrators of the Oklahoma City bombing they attacked the US. Federal Government In an act of what they believed to be payback I. They believed that the federal government was was evil regime. An Act of revenge over the feds handling of both Randy Weaver's family armed confrontation with with the FBI and the US marshals in Ruby Ridge. Idaho and David Koresh and his followers violent clash with the FBI in Waco. Tex these events were in the minds of people like Oklahoma City bomber. Timothy McVeigh continuation of other totalitarian actions. Taken by government. They felt was increasingly unwilling. Excuse me increasingly willing to turn on his people as it marched towards the end. Goal of one world government Enslavement in the minds of former army. Vets Tim McVeigh Terry Nichols and Michael. Forte the new world order was leaving. Its boot print on the faces of American citizens with increasing regularity and it was time to fight or let the republic die like with so many other horrible actions that have been carried out throughout human history. The to the Oklahoma City bombing was paved with some pretty irrational beliefs. Although the two main conspirator conspirators behind the bombing Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols were not directly connected with any major political group. They did hold views characteristic of the broad Patriot movement a movement feared authoritarian plots by the US federal government and corporate elites trying to subjugate and control the American citizenry and a movement. Like this in my opinion is bound to bring in a few actual patriots. People who care deeply about the core values of America being infringed upon by the federal government. And it's also going to bring in a lot of paranoid Wackadoo lsu think? Nefarious forces are hard at work behind the scenes to turn the working class into a slave state and what are the core values of America? Anyways WE'LL ask ten people and you'll probably get ten different answers. But for the most part. They seem to revolve around freedom. Equality Individualism and growth and these values are each interpreted differently by different people. Take Freedom. What does that word actually mean to you? Are you truly free to do whatever you like to do? Sometimes I'd like to kill the deer. Come in my yard and rallied my dogs and blanket my long with. Oh so many piles of their hard to pick up fellowship but if a shot one of those dear. I GET A lot of trouble. I get in trouble for. Fire my rifle inside city limits. You know because I'm not doing it in a gun range. I get in trouble for poaching. Deer are never in season in my yard. Get in trouble for endangering my neighbors risking shooting one of them by accident when I shoot deer so I guess I'm free to do it but now without consequences not free to legally do everything I'd like to do. I am free to say anything I WANT TO SAY. Here on this podcast. Well I mean actually you know within reason. I can't even say everything I you know. I would always want to say without fear of some legal consequence for example throughout the address with someone. I didn't care for and asked you to go to that address and kill them making a little trouble pregnant myself to so you know some jail time there. None of us are truly free to do whatever we want without legal consequences lands have laws and if you break those laws even the free free countries you gotta be punished or you should be so. No one on. Earth is really ever truly totally free based on various polls and studies the most important freedoms for Americans the freedom of speech that's my number one Freedom of religion is number one to a lot of people the ability to have due process for crimes. One has been accused of is a freedom important to many of us. The right to bear arms is the most important for him to many. It's important for him to be as well. It's all so complicated when you really look at it. And don't just speak in buzz. Words and slogans. This illustrates why people can pontificate and argue about politics endlessly. It's deceptively very complicated but also at its core very simple. I think most people wanna be able to just fuck whoever they WANNA fuck whenever they want to. What are those people are into it or not right? I mean humans animals objects freedoms mostly about the right to tie someone or something up. And carry it to your soundproof basement. And Yell at him or her it and just fuck it you know. I think we can all agree on that. You know if you can't take someone's Nanna or pop and time up. Put JUMPER CABLES ON NIPPLES JUICE. And while you're standing next to him and masturbating in the more they sizzle the harder you get. Are you even fucking free at all? No Sir and hopefully you know that I'm kidding. Just hang got saying. That is weird sweet. Jesus hoping what I just said was horrific intentionally hope to new listeners. Tuning in for the first time hearing that and thinking themselves finally soccer get no I think freedom at its core is simple. I think most people want to live the most free life possible in a land or they are there are laws that protect them from other citizens laws upheld via law enforcement most people want affordable access to education and healthcare to live in a nation with an economy to provide them the opportunity to buy private land and build wealth and worship whatever. God they want to worship participate in elections that allow them to help steer their nation the directions they'd like to go while also having a military strong enough to protect everything. I've just laid out from foreign invasion and members of the so-called Patriot movement a moving the Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols again. Were ideologically very much in tune with where they were very worried that the US government was going to take away the freedom they cared about the most and that was the right to bear arms and then that would lead to having other freedoms taken away and eventually they'd be enslaved at its most extreme. Some Patriot movement members were so convinced that the federal government was an enemy of the common citizen that they denied the basic legitimacy of the federal government and law enforcement. They felt they didn't have to follow their loss right. They refused to follow their loss. Militia groups reform across the nation by men and women but mostly men who are worried to various degrees about the federal government by the mid nineties. There were about thirty thousand militia members in the US. The militias justify their existence by claiming a right to armed self defense against our allegedly oppressive government in this context the date of the Oklahoma City attack April nineteenth was very significant doubly significant falling onto anniversaries very important to the modern militia and Patriot movement April Nineteenth Marks Patriots Day the anniversary of the American rebellion against British Authority Lexington Massachusetts in seventeen seventy five the beginning of the revolutionary war. The Boston marathon ran every year on Patriots Day. Several states recognize it as a state holiday. Also April nineteenth is the date when federal agents raided the heavily armed compound of the Branch Davidian religious cult in Waco Texas in Nineteen ninety-three. So this date was definitely significant. To McVeigh he claimed that the building in Oklahoma City he bomb was targeted to avenge the deaths. Waco following the Oklahoma City Attack Media Law enforcement officials began intense investigations of the militia movement and other armed extremist groups in America and just before Waco McVeigh had closely followed the Ruby Ridge siege. We discovered that two weeks ago with her. You know one hundred seventy nine episodes so we'll only go into here. Briefly Ruby Ridge was the location of violent eleven day standoff in Remote Boundary County Idaho beginning on August twenty first nineteen ninety two the followed roughly a year. And a half's worth of you know the weavers refusal to go to court over a weapons charge. Us marshals and federal agents faced off against Randy weaver a Christian extremist worried about an impending apocalypse in an anti-semitic believer in a Jewish shadow government and his equally paranoid wife. We were children and family. Friend Kevin Harris also involved in the standoff. The Ruby Ridge incident follows several years of investigations into we were by local authorities the FBI the ATF. And the Secret Service and an ended with the shooting death of a US marshal..

"On April Nineteenth nineteen ninety five at nine. Am A writer moving truck parked at a drop off zone. Situated under the Alfred P Murrah Federal Buildings Daycare Center exploded in downtown Oklahoma City Oklahoma. The blast killed one hundred. Sixty eight people injured more than five hundred others and destroyed one third of the giant government building. The blast also destroyed or damaged three hundred and twenty four other buildings within sixteen block radius. It shattered glass. In nearby buildings destroyed or burned eighty-six cars caused an estimated six hundred and fifty two million dollars worth of total damage until the September eleven. Two thousand one attacks over six years later the Oklahoma City bombing will be the deadliest terrorist attack in the history of the United States and it remains the deadliest incident of domestic terrorism. Ever committed on. Us soil so who did it? And why did they do? That is what we deep dive into today in another. How do people develop such delusional horrific beliefs edition of time suck? This is Michael. And you're listening to Sean listening happy. Monday meets axe. Marx's already here how did that happen? It's almost like time continues to move forward at a consistent measurable rate weird. I'm becoming a Master. Sucker bojangles pooper-scooper Dr Sucker.

Watching the volume levels script for high priests queen to suck alter desks Lindsay. My wife also scared to death. Podcast CO host brought to my attention that California's suckers thought. I had shit all over them. In the recent Ruby Ridge suck no apparently will not feeling well during the recorded. Make one of my jokes explicitly clear when I told Californians to not move to Idaho. I was joking. I was expressing a common sentiment held around quarterlane and held around the rest of Idaho. I didn't make up that sentiment. It does exist. The semin exist because as I said. California's typically bring a lot more money into the area and drive the prices of homes up when they sell their homes in California For much higher prices than people who are able to sell their homes around Idaho for and that makes it houses unaffordable for some locals which makes him understandably not pleased. Also Shit on. Idaho's doing that sarcastically. Job To work for many pretending to hate it to keep the locals get mad at me for encouraging more. Californians move here so apparently I was just very confusing joke. I don't give a shit if you move here. Why wouldn't I want more fans in area? I've already bought my house so it doesn't affect me. If anything healthy I hope that clears everything up. I will work to further clear up some other views. I laid out in the Ruby Ridge. Sock here today This suck definitely related huge.
