"Radio station on the air. Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer threatened today to go after N bridges profits from a great Lakes oil pipeline if the company defies your order to shut it down. Democratic governor issued the warning in a letter to the Canadian Energy Transport company on the eve of a state imposed deadline to halt operation of Line five, which moves oil through northern Wisconsin and Michigan. Refineries in Ontario. And Bridge repeated its intention to defy witness demand. A nearly four mile long section of line five divides into two pipes. Across the bottom of the Straits of MCA Neck, which connects Lake Michigan and Lake Cura. Whitmer, backed by environmentalists and native tribes, says the segment is vulnerable to a catastrophic spill and the cold, swirling channel. She re evoked an easement last November that Michigan had granted in 1953 for the pipes to occupy the lake bottom and ordered them closed by May 12th. And bridge insists the segments in good condition and says its loss would cause economic damage in both countries, the position shared by the Canadian government. Which filed a legal brief today in support of the company. Meanwhile, more than 1000 gas stations in the Southeast reported running out of fuel, primarily because of what analysts say is unwarranted. Panic buying among drivers as the shutdown of a major pipeline by a gang of hackers entered its fifth day today. Government officials acted swiftly to waive safety and environmental rules to speed the delivery of fuel by truck, ship or rail to motorists in airports, even as they sought to assure the public that there was no cause for alarm. The colonial pipeline, the biggest fuel pipeline in the U. S delivering about 45% of what is consumed on the East Coast. Was hit last Friday with the cyber attack by hackers who lock up computer systems and demand a ransom to release them. Attacks raised concerns once again about the vulnerability of the nation's critical infrastructure. Large part of the pipeline resumed operation manually late yesterday, and Energy Secretary Jennifer Graham Holmes said Colonial anticipates restarting most of its operations by the end of the week. Motorists may still feel a crunch because it takes a few days to ramp up operations. Grand, Holmes said. There's no reason the horde gasoline more from reporter Nick Harper, the American Automobile Association says prices at the pumps of risen 6% already over the last week, supplies a tightening this colonial works to get the pipeline operational again, aiming to have it back online by the end of the week.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is calling for compulsory cyber security standards for awhile pipeline operators to prevent similar hack attacks. I'm Nick Harper in Washington.

Sam Anderson has the story. O'Meara mean, has been in jail for 1000 days, nearly three years over charges that he was a commander with Isis and that he killed an Iraqi police officer in 2000 and 14. But it means lawyers say that's impossible because I mean was 600 miles away in Turkey the day the officer was killed, and they have the evidence to prove it. Michael Anthony Adams is an international correspondent at Vice News who helped obtain some of that evidence went to Iraq and it was becoming fairly apparent that the people that were involved in these accusations there was a lot of holes in their stories. They were unreliable witnesses. We were able to get phone records that GPS located Omar mean in Turkey on the day of the murder. Last month, a federal judge ruled there was insufficient evidence to prove he was the assailant and rejected Iraq's request to extradite him while the Iraqi government still claims he's an Isis commander responsible for multiple killings, Adam says a mean was a refugee who was fleeing violence in Iraq because he didn't want to raise his Children in a war zone.

"In violent acts. this is this. Is the double standard here again. Is what's killing. The united states is double standards that kill the united states because it is one thing to hold the standard and we may not like the standard but at least it's held evenly when the standard is applied to once the other that is a completely different thing but put that aside ilhan omar talking about how people need to be pulled off committee because of bad things that they've said in the past. Ilhan omar saying this. Let me just remind you. Ilhan omar wrote a letter to a judge suggesting that a person tried to join isis. Should be given a lenient sentence because america is filled with systemic racism. Ilhan omar tweeted. Forget about before. She was in congress. She tweeted while she was in congress. About how apec was paying american congress people in order to be pro israel right it's all about the benjamins is what she tweeted. She accused american jews. A possessions of possessing dual loyalty to israel and the united states before she was in congress. As long as we're gonna go before congress standard which is what they're using now with marjorie taylor green. She accused israel of hypnotize in the world. She still supports the boycott divestment and sanctions campaign against israel which is anti semitism. She submitted a resolution in the house of representatives that compared boycotting israel boycotting the nazis according to the jerusalem. Post them because there is a whole move inside congress to prevent dds on college campuses and she immediately said no no no boycotting israel is like boycotting the nazis th. That's that is omar. And how did she ever apologize. In fact not only did she not apologize for that. Not only do should not apologize for that. She went on. Cbs this morning and she said i don't regret any of those comments. I don't know. I regret how people took them which is always. That's one of my favorite apologies. I really apologize for how you took that way. You're apologizing for me. I knew anything wrong. I just properly interpreted her comments. You resilient omar not apologizing to just a little while ago. Oftentimes there are things that you might say might not hold wait for you. But to someone else the way that we hear And consume information is very different than how the next person might so. You don't regret your words either. I do not have gotten the. I am grateful for the opportunity to really learn how words made people feel and has taken Every single opportunity guy and To to make sure that people understood that i apologize for it and would you people would know that you were anti semitic. Oh certainly not no certainly not certainly not she was never ance. Medic is no no neither she to leave by the way neither of us who had flirted with the blood libel over and over again right earlier this year. She has delete a tweet in which she she re tweeted at tweet suggesting that jews had had kidnapped a seven-year-old palestinian child and thrown him down a water. Well it turns out that he had just slipped and he had fallen into a well and died there. But you re tweeted. That does not the first time or she to lead a well. Respected member of the democratic party tweeted that israel unjustly oppresses and targets palestinian children after a palestinian rocket attack against israeli civilians she compared israel to nazi germany. Which is a form of anti semitism in december after nancy's medic shooting at a kosher deli in new jersey. You remember that this is. This is just a couple of years ago she rushed. You can white supremacy. The attack happened to be a member of the black hebrew israelites. She later deleted that russia to lead the so many inside the democratic party and by the way how are they treated inside the democratic party. You've got the entire republican party infrastructure pointing out that marjorie taylor. Green does not represent them does not. The entire democratic party rushed to ilhan omar defense. There was an attempt to push a censure vote on. Ilhan omar is like only a couple of months by the way after kevin mccarthy stripped steve king of his committee assignments just a few months later. Ilhan omar was brought up for a possible central vote and democrats decided instead to pass a resolution condemning every bad thing in the universe. We're not gonna name ilhan omar. We're just going to say bad. Things are bad. Would you like to sign onto a resolution. And then nancy pelosi was on the cover of rolling stone with ilhan. Omar mean. come on come on if you want to make the case. Republicans are the party of marjorie. Taylor green again. That case is a lot weaker than the case that democrats are the party of ilhan omar and retreated to leap considering the amount of defense they have placed in these. Two people minimum mean there are other people in congress are extraordinarily radical on the democratic side. As as well. But here's the point. The double standard is what the democrats are living off right. Now it's what the media are living off of right now. My favorite thing here is that republicans point this out. We point out that. Look merger taylor. Green in my opinion should have been stripped of for committee assignments by the republicans. Democrats don't get to do this from the top level of the house of representatives by the way again when republicans take the house in twenty twenty two. I promise you the first move will make triple hanno marmaris youtube of their committee assignments. Ilhan omar is a rabid anti who sits on the house foreign affairs committee. In any case the media immediate the their move here is not to say. Oh yeah you're right you know. Both sides really should purge themselves members who are unrepresentative of their viewpoints and who traffic in conspiracy theories and traffic and enjoy hatred really. Both parties should do that instead. The media are like how dare you compare. Ilhan omar with marjorie tailoring. Here's seth meyers democratic. Hack pseudo. comedian. Saying you can't. You can't equate the to listen to this defense. It's unreal. But i have to say the most vile defensive. Green i saw today came from republicans and fox news which repeatedly tried to equator with minnesota congresswoman ilhan omar One wants medicare for all and the other things a jewish space laser stars wildfires.

For that's full color. We will split in full color. Only got their bill. Today I have filed too many briefs as counsel of record in the supreme. That has definitely been demonstra. I think you should wallpaper. You should take the covers carrier wall with them. I that's not. That's not showy and snobbish that at home let's jump into trump Quick rundown of what exactly we know hasn't hasn't happened with what appears to be and it's hard to understand anything but a case of White House pressure on line prosecutors to change their position or even just just like men office pressure. Online transmuted transmitted clearly the front office. It may justice out to the Attorney's office and and pressuring in directing not pressuring but directing people to change their position on recommended sentence. Unpack that what then happened. So Roger Roger Stone right was tried convicted by a jury of Several counts of interfering with the federal message of obstructing justice of threatening Threatening a witness End So Monday. The Justice Department Per Standard practice filed a sentencing recommendation that recommended sentencing guidelines based sentencing. Somewhere between seven and nine years with much of the enhancement. Coming from the witness intimidation part of of the charge and just be clear about the guidelines. This is the whole point of the guidelines is to create at least a framework of objectivity and predictability where you match the the standardize numerical assessment of how serious the fences versus Prior history and other other factors aggravating or mitigating in yields a grid like framework. That tells you trace this line that line. Oh seven to nine. Years is the recommendation to setting. And now it's just a recommendation. The judge is not bound by the conditional. There's a whole lot of complicated case law. About what the judge has to do to depart from the recommendation but for those who reacted this life. That seems like an awfully long recommendation for a non violent crime. Well it's not. I mean now that part. That part just misinformed. This is no way nuys that this is what the guidelines range says. That's not true there are plenty of the Internet tonight. And that's what the we're GONNA go there so I can never say no one. Let me let me caveat. Standard Caveat no one who knows what they're talking about reasonable at the principal objects the principal not principled objection of those. Who have some modicum of sense about what they're talking about is that the enhancement for the witness. Intimidation piece was not justified. By what was interesting proven at trial and all of that is that may or may not be true it is hardly out of. Doj's regular daily practice to push for every enhancement for which there is a plausible even if not hundred percent open and shut case in a sentencing recommendation. It is not like DOJ has a history of going soft in sentencing recommendations. Well especially when someone's when he goes to the as as it here lying to investigators etcetera so now the the recommendation was signed by the Four career DOJ prosecutors two of whom were permanently in the DC US attorney's office in two of whom were detailed as special assistant. Us Attorney is to the DC US Attorney's office from other offices one from the mall investigation in one from somewhere else in the country. Illinois Ohio something anyway. This by Monday afternoon there was lots of noise and conservative news land that the White House was very unhappy with the sense so the mental itself got news when it hit because a lot of folks were surprised After the White House after DOJ had not recommended and especially severe sentence for Michael Flynn when it filed a memo. Flynn case last month. Six weeks this one came down. I don't think hard in comparison by similar it was kind of traditional rather than show median. Yeah right And this quickly got picked up by conservative news outlets and by Monday night the president was All a twitter about how unfair this was and how someone had to do. Something you know really is amazing that the information transmission mechanism if you can inject an idea that gets picked up by right especially Fox then it if it's interesting there's a decent chance he's going to respond to an interactive and he did he tweeted about it Criticizing it very very directly and then what happened and then shockingly enough on So by Tuesday morning him there are reports circulating in the news that The main office. Doj is leaking the front office. Doj's Lincoln Tuesday morning that the sentencing recommendation is being reconsidered right senior DOJ messaging back to the White House. Okay we're on this okay. Rhonda's but meanwhile before the new memo is even filed all four of the line prosecutors withdraw from the prosecution and one of them. John Kravis resigns as an assistant. Us Attorney Right. The first time I can remember it which all of the government lawyers on a case resigned on Moss clearly in protest of a decision that was made over their heads. Yeah I can't think of an example now from policy. Let's let's unpack the issues that disturbs one more development and so after all four of them had resigned a new sentencing memorandum has filed this one signed by a non-career or maybe a new career person or just a different person to whatever basically saying we're not recommending a particular sentence. There should be prison time but here all the reasons why the memory fouled yesterday was just ridiculous and aggressive. Overly and we've we've changed our mind so basically they they don't WanNa put a new number out there because then you have something very specific to contrast they say something less but they don't they don't say time served that's right now legally before we get to the policy because I wanted to draw a bright line between the law and the policy here. Legally the next step is this goes to judge Jackson. Amy Berman Jackson. The presiding judge in this case who's already had quite a few run. Ins With Roger Stone over gag orders and what she is under no obligation to accept the revised recommendation. That's right she looks at the first one and it is fully within her power to refuse to accept the withdrawal of the four prosecutors until she conducts a hearing into the circumstances of their withdrawal. So the real question to me now legally is to what extent does judge Jackson. Just sort of keep your head down sentence maybe at the high end of the revised recommendation and go home or if she has pissed about all of this as just about everybody else is And wants to get on the record. Exactly what happened? She has the power theoretically to compel the Attorney General to show up and testify under oath about what happened. So let's unpack. What could happen there? 'cause I don't think she should do that. Yeah I I don't think that leads. Let's imagine what do we think happier? I think it's just what you said. President got unhappy because others are unhappy. He's happy himself. Stones his friend. Whatever in puts pressure on the main DOJ folks who in turn direct that? You gotta take this different position. It's also it's also possible bar this all even without a direct. But but what he got he got the twitter directive and that's the directive. You need this administration. Although I will say one thing before a lot of folks who have been sort of defending this nonsense which by the way I just don't understand having pointed to carry Kopech statement that the front office at DOJ was already reconsidering loves the recommendation before the President tweeted. And I just want to say no. What that statement doesn't say the president had yeah? It does tweeted right the possibility that before the tweet there had been some other communication between the White House and the and the front office so the idea of a hearing to investigate like how did this come about strikes me as pretty problematic extremely sensitive. It's not remotely clear to me that the hearing would properly be able to elicit the details of communications between the president and the Attorney General about this As a matter of privilege I also think that even if that were somehow allowed they're like what would we expect to find? It would be that the president said. I think this is a raw deal. The executive power is vested in me. You were all exercising derivative forms of my power and I want it done this. This is where the law comes right so so I think you and I both agree and I think almost everyone who knows what they're talking about agrees that as a matter a pure constitutional authority the president absolutely has the power to order the attorney general the US Attorney for the District of Columbia and anyone working under them in this capacity in an exercise of prosecutorial power to take a particular step. You're right that that's not so this is not an argument with the president. Did is a violation of statute unconstitutional. The argument is that it is incredibly toxic to a critical norm in our constitutional system. Which is the idea. Not Absolute prosecutorial independence but sort of default general prosecutorial independence. So I think we actually totally agree on this. That we're we're talking about here is yet another example of one of these immensely important policy and political norms that are not laws and certainly aren't constitutional constraints but you realize once you have a norm transgressor as we do it turns out you might wish that they were part of it. In one of those is the the relative political insulation prosecutorial decisionmaking especially in the line the line attorneys and DOJ. You attorneys and I think it's relevant in this regard that the stone investigation in particular is a hand off from Muller right where where this all started as an investigation context or there was supposed to be actually some meaningful independence. Right words special counsel. Who actually was insulated from direct supervision? It was only it's only now in the US Attorney's office because Muller Close Up Shop. Here's the funny thing so so I'm taking the view with you that this is terrible that it was done but it wasn't some ultra vires constitutional action if if that's how this unfolded but the president has a whole separate power. That's less controversy`l legally right. So if he feels this way why does he just pardon the guy and put it into it? I actually think that would have been better here. I think it would have been really great. Because that doesn't transgress the norm in the same way. So here's the problem. I think what happened at what it is. Nbc also reported last night that the same had actually happened. In the Flynn case it's just that the maneuver on the interference happened before the mission was filed. So we never saw it so the irony. Here is the only reason why we're even seeing any of this nonsense is because they're incompetent right like if you know or they no longer cares much. No I think I think somebody in the I think somebody May Justice League it. No no no no no. I think the line attorneys. I don't think anyone lied to like. I don't think it was like a phone call to the. Hey guys. Are you working on the stone sentencing memo? No we're not I don't like I didn't someone that may justice just wasn't paying attention to that. This was coming as opposed. Flynn there were more on it. Yeah well right..
"omar mean" Discussed on The Young Turks
"They're taking this awful thing that we all agree is every other got the one thing that we can all agree on their weaponising. But as Anna says, then there's no follow through for those who helped with the cleanup is the same thing with veterans. You know, Donald Trump wraps himself in the flag, and he wraps himself in inventions. And yet a big on war GOP has this history of war. I know not all GOP is the same, and please GOP you might have been against the war in Iraq. But let's face it under a Republican administration. They went to war in Iraq that created a generation of veterans who have all kinds of issues, but when it comes down to the follow through with those veterans, they're nowhere in sight. There's no money for those veterans. So you can wrap yourself in these issues. But as Ana says, there's no follow-through, it's clearly a bankrupt notion. So I want to just quickly mention a few other things, especially how Pelosi reacted to this. So falling the president's tweet. She says I spoke with the sergeant at arms to ensure that capitol police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard congresswoman, Omar her family and her staff, they will continue to monitor and address the threat she faces. So I'm glad she did that and that was an appropriate response. But prior to that response, she said the following Pelosi originally said in a statement Saturday that memory of nine eleven is sacred ground and any discussion of it must be done with reverence. But so there's a lot of this coming from the left, which is disheartening a lot of strong talk about this is the way nine eleven needs to be talked about. And then, you know, it's usually followed with, but we need to protect Representative, Omar, look, I get it. You nine eleven was a serious tragedy is severe tragedy. But when someone speaking off the cuff, and they're speaking in passing about something else about discrimination, and how certain people are treated as second class citizens. I think it's fine to take a good hard look at their intentions before judging their statement because I don't think that Representative Omar meant to minimize what happened at nine eleven at all this to some extent..
"omar mean" Discussed on WBAP 820AM
"Jimbotalks. Last week the house passed a resolution, which rather broadly condemns antisemitism. Islam Afo BIA and other forms of hatred, and Linda Kenyon has the story resolution which passed by vote of four zero seven two twenty three came in response to recent remarks by Representative Ilhan, Omar that were deemed to be antisemitic. The remarks pounded freshman democratic congresswoman Muslim who represents Minnesota unleashed a torrent of debate in the democratic caucus prior to the vote house speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters she was convinced Omar meant, no malice when she made her statements about you as Israel relations. I feel confident that her words were not based on any insensitive attitude, but that she didn't have a full appreciation of how they landed on other people were this. He's I have a history Republican Doug Collins of Georgia wasn't buying it. And we say that we see something that is anti semitic. But we say, well, they may not have known. It was it's anti semitic. The broad anti-hate resolution was both praised for its inclusiveness. And condemned all at once New York Democrat. Eliot Engel supported the resolution, even as he decried, the general nature of its language. No member of congress should be making anti-semitic statements, Representative Collins found the entire process distressing. I'm here with my friend from New York debating resolution it all of us should have learned in kindergarten. Be nice don't. Hey democrat. Jamie Raskin called the remarks made by Representative Omar extremely harmful anti-semitism and racism are the gateway to destruction for everything that we believe in as a society, Texas, Republican Louie Gohmert, one of the twenty three Republicans who voted against the resolution said it didn't go far enough any shamateurism hatred for the children of Israel is a very special kind of hatred that should never be watered down and Republican Lee Zeldin of New York who also voted against the anti hade resolution said it should have been much more specific semitism. Must be condemned. Unequivocally emphatically, he also decried what he described as a double standard in the house in January. We all came to this chamber. We condemned white supremacy. We named a Republican member we kicked that member. Off of his committee's member Republican Steve king of Iowa voted present Ilhan, Omar who was not mentioned by name in the resolution, and who continues to serve on the house foreign affairs committee voted, yes. On anti hate resolution. Linda Kenyon, Washington tells you a lot about how specific it was if the actual subject, the reason why this whole thing came up voted voted. Yes. On the resolution. Why not? I mean, they they I guess they did not include jaywalking. There must have been some areas, which they they did not include otherwise, it was pretty pretty all inclusive. And obviously the intent was to make it so broad as to have virtually no meaning whatsoever. We're joined by Noah Pollock. He's a contributor to the free beacon online at free beacon dot com, and a me no good to have you with us. Thank you. Absolutely. You have an interesting take on this this whole notion. And you note her viewpoint is not half as significant, and I agree with you as the context in which it has to be placed. Right. Yeah. I mean, you know, the the past week it reminded me of that Lennon quote about for Vladimir Lenin not John Lennon about how there are weeks. When decades happened, and it was it was such an amazing week in which something that we previously thought wise, a very solid wall, which was in the Democratic Party opposition to antisemitism and a willingness to hold even their own members party Hannibal for this that wall turned out to not exist. And it was a really remarkable how fast everything changed last week when you know, if you would set a month ago, if someone stood up and not just like a slip of the tongue, you know or an off handed remark or like a quote dug up from a decade ago. This was her intentionally trolling everyone and saying this stuff over and over and over again as just a taunt one and say, what are you going to do? And it turned. Out that Democrats were gonna do was basically nothing, and I think she correctly read the spirit of the new progressive spirit of the Democratic Party. And I on the on the progressive last. People like her who were viewed as having checked a lot of victims with boxes, basically, get a get out of jail free card. You write about this? And I think it's important that you go into some detail here. My guess is you're not that old Noah would that be correct? Yeah, I'm forty you're forty. Okay. Well, that's for the purposes of this discussion that would be not too old because there is a real generational divide here between people forty and under and those who grew up in the civil rights actually believing words like judging people by the content of their character, not the color of their skin. Dr Martin Luther King junior for those who don't have the know that particular quote, and I think you should get into what you were taught in college in a race relations class taught out of the sociology department because for a lot of people out there. This is going to be very very eyebrow. Raising please explain what you were taught that is the Genesis of all of this. Yeah. So it's very interesting. And I guess I was in college in the late nineties, and this was kind of early dates for this stuff. And so we had to take a required race relations class and one of the things we were taught was that racism is basically a mathematical formula for understanding what real racism, and real, racism and bigotry. Is prejudice plus power. Plus power part is the key giveaway normally classically endured rights movement and kind of in the classical liberal thinking about these things there there is an emphasis on individual rights and equality between people in these matters. And that's why we got we got concepts. Like, it doesn't really matter who you are or who you are targeting. Judging people by the color of their skin is raw. Treating people differently based on their race based on their membership in a group, whether they're Jews or whether they're African Americans, whatever that's wrong, the new formulation which adds this. Plus power element, basically says the only people who can actually be guilty of real racism or white people and specifically wealthy typically Christian white men because in the progressive outlook on society is not comprised of individuals in the classical liberal sense. And in the American sense, it's actually comprised of racial groups and various groups of people who have different oppression characteristics. And so those people don't have the Seidel power, and therefore they can't be guilty when they say batch teams or when they do bad things against others. You can't judge them by the same standard because a member of the house foreign relations committee has no real power. But you, and I are dripping with white privilege is that right? That's part of the idea. Yes. I mean, that's obviously. One of the more ludicrous aspects of this that a member of a member of a house committee gets to claim that she's a victim and she's powerless on. I think it's also there's lots of things that of show the fallacy here. I mean, one one thing it didn't make it into. This is the actually the wealthiest group racially in America is is Asia's it's not white not even close. The average household income for Asian Americans is about eighty thousand dollars year and the average household income. So white Americans sixty thousand dollars matter of fact, you you see that reflected. There are colleges out there. They're desperately trying to keep the number of Asians out of their their colleges. Because in this case, I suppose, we could consider this Asia, attic privilege, in other words, if you do well that automatically you didn't deserve it. Right. Right. And you know, it's it's sort of goes all the way around the bend. Because if once you see the world through this lens in which you'll on Omar is a black immigrants. Woman and the person she's in subgroups, she's insulting Jews as in the Indus conception are white privilege wealthy people in society. Have always been very privileged people. You only have to read the history of the twentieth century to realize privilege, they have been. But once the amazing thing is that once you start thinking about it through that lens. You see what what is the progressives me was the actual invest the people who are really the prejudice people in this whole episode where the people criticizing Johanna Homer for her bigotry de Caceres. Women immigrants, and so she can do no wrong. Yes. Totally you, of course, you can run. And in fact, when she expresses the sentiments we need to take them seriously because she's been oppressed person. And you can't judge press Gerson by the same standards that you judge her oppressors, and I wanted people to hear that because because what no apologist said is not something new. It's just something that is part of a generational divide. That roughly coincides with the point at which we cease to maintain control of our educational system in this country. So in other words with Jesse Jackson referred to New York City as Hymie town that was just a playful prank got out of hand. But he could not possibly have expressed bigotry for being a person of color. It's impossible to have bigotry now as much as most of the audience are going to say that's nonsense. Yes, it is. Except that it's not nonsense to an awful lot of people. And that's the point. I wanted to drive home in this first section. You've got to understand. It's not just Omar. There are millions of people have to feel just the same. I know some of them I'm related to some of them. Yeah. Me too. What you see this? You see this? I think one of the most fascinating, I'm always fascinated by how the media covers these snakes because it shows the operation of the liberal hurt mind. And the amazing thing is that normally when you have an incident like this that is so electrifying get so much attention. The media will people in the New York Times and the Washington Post and the big newspapers will write these context pieces that explore different angles of the story. And so the amazing thing was not wanted to write a context piece about Ilhan, Omar. She came from a society where NC semitism is very very common. She came from that society along time ago, she's been in the United States. She was fourteen. So she knows perfectly. Well, what's right and wrong here? Nobody wanted to explore that. And so the question is why didn't these newspapers want to get into the issue of Muslim anti semitism? Will the reason is is this exact same reason? What you say Muslims are misconceptions there. An oppressed group of their you know, darker skin typically than white Americans. And you don't subject them to that type of scrutiny and criticism in a public way because they're an oppressed group, and we sort of the white people are the oppressors, and you're not supposed to do that. Break we're gonna come back with with more with our guest including calls at one eight six six five O, JIMBO. But it was important that we understand this. There are a lot of people in this country. I think who never fully realized the fact that this has been drummed into the heads of young people now for several decades in this country. This is the way it is. It's the way it ought to be. And some of you who have had conversations they have thanksgiving the guy little out of hand. This is why this is why. And that's part of our dialogue that will continue in just a moment..

"Was congressman Adriano mar speaking at the event, a fuss poison poets and congressman Paul you were right there next to her at the event. Can you talk about the anti semitism resolution as they're calling it now because of enormous pushback by people like Alexandra Cossio Cortes. They are adding condemnation of Islamaphobia as well, what about what Ilhan Omar is saying, well, you I'm the co chair of the congressional progressive caucus, and we have been working for the last several days with house leadership to make sure that any resolution we pass takes on the same issues around the Slama phobia around anti-semitism around all of the bigotry and racism that we are seeing frankly fueled in Malar part by a president and a GOP who refused to call any of it out. So we the Democratic Party are United in the belief that anti-semitism is wrong. And they're all. Tropes that do come out. Sometimes and we have to we have to contend with those. And I think that Representative Omar, and I was the first member of congress to endorse her when she ran for congress. She is a friend. And I believe that she is very intently listening to her Jewish friends and colleagues who are explaining why one-sentence in everything that she said was troubling. However, I do think we have pushed very hard for this to this resolution to also include anything around Islamaphobia. This is a member of congress who is being subjected to deeply unfair in my part scrutiny around everything she says at a different level than others. Now. I think she knows that she has to be extra careful because of that. But I also think that we should condemn, you know, a poster that ties her to the nine eleven terrorist. I think that is outrageous. And so we have been, you know, push. Shing and we've been successful. I think and I'm. Grateful to speaker Pelosi for recognizing that we need to take all of this on. I don't know how many more resolutions were going to have to put forward around these comments. When I think the Republicans are just trying to divide the democratic caucus the Democratic Party. I know that we just need to make sure we stay United that we stand in support of all of our colleagues, and and especially recognize that our colleagues are willing to learn and listen, whereas, you know, an even say they're wrong as Ilhan Omar did the last time she said something that was really cold out. But I don't see that coming from the other side. And I just wanna make sure that we are protecting also the right for the first Muslim woman to to repeat it to LeBron Ilhan to be in congress and took question legitimately foreign policy towards Israel. We need to make sure we separate anything that is. You know, might be said, which I don't believe Representative Omar meant in that way from a legitimate critique of Israel, and I am worried that these two things are coming together. And that a lot of the noise that's out. There is going is designed to prevent us from taking on the question of our foreign policy towards Israel. That said I didn't notice that she said that sentence in the middle. It was the middle of a very very long. Speech in some ways. The first part was very much about, you know, solidarity with our Jewish allies. The second part of the speech was really about our foreign policy towards Israel. Unfortunately, the sentence was in the middle. And I think she recognizes that that you know, she has apologized before for some of her oversight there. But I think she wants to make some legitimate points about our foreign policy towards Israel and should be allowed to do that. And we should be allowed to debate that congressman Brown another topic. You're a member of the the House Judiciary committee. The chairman of Jerrold Nadler has requested of more than eighty people connected to President Trump or documents looking at potential violations of the law. Some people are criticizing this as a wide net overreach by the committee. Your response. Well, you know, we submitted chairman Adler submitted a document requests for eighty one agency. Individuals and the White House, and these are documents that have already been developed and provided to other investigations like the southern district of New York investigation. These are already prepared documents. There's nothing onerous about this request. But for two years Republicans have blocked Democrats from doing our job on the judiciary committee, which is to look into obstruction of Justice public corruption and abuses of power. Those are the three areas judiciary committee has wide breath over those three areas, their constitutional responsibility. These documents to those the core of those three issues, and so I hope that the White House does not start blocking all of our requests for these documents. Because then we're going to have to start subpoenaing people. And I don't think that's what the American people want the White House's prepared these documents these agencies have prepared these documents. They should just turn them over to us. If you have nothing to hide let us look at everything. Let us do our investigations. And let's make the. About what is actually happening expose that? So that's what I hope happens. Unfortunately, that's not doesn't seem to be the way the White House is moving, but I think Americans then want to know, what are you trying to hide why this congressman Jared, how do you support calls for impeachment of person and Trump well, as you know, as you probably know I signed onto those articles of impeachment in the last congress and the one hundred fifteenth congress because I believed we needed to be having these discussions now that we are in control, our perspective is we have to get all of this information laid out for the American people because as you know, Amy impeachment has to happen through a two thirds majority in the Senate, we need to have Republicans on board. We need to have Americans on board, and we need to make sure we have all of the information which we were prevented from getting. So now, let us go through this investigation. Let us get all of this.

This storm was the mother storm changed the whole island and it changes every single person. People have each other. If I mean Mary is the most beautiful lesson is we trust in us, they're gonna, do the anniversary of Maria is should be the Ananta versity. But these these monster unified, this monster unified us. Those voices from our friends at the takeaway. They've been on the ground in Puerto Rico, all week host, tens, innovative says a full year after the storm hit the destruction caused by hurricane. Maria is still easy to see. A San Juan looks a little bit worn down. And the rest of the island looks a little bit weathered, and I'm imagining that's just reaction to the storm. But it might also be because people are still waiting for insurance payments to be able to take care of their homes and rebuild. They're still a lot of rebuilding going on. There's a lot of concern about FEMA. There are some spray painted signs that say, you know, FEMA is not the solution. The solution is self governance since. So we're seeing that as emerges the theme. I know you're no stranger to Puerto Rico. What were you not expecting to see her here when you. Started talking to people there about what they're feeling. They hit this one year Mark will they were couple of things. One was the challenge to the status quo rate often in Puerto Rico, and among the Puerto Rican community we talk. There's usually a question of either statehood of do we do that or do we remain this sort of free associated state, right? A Commonwealth and this idea that you know, maybe it's none of those things. Maybe it's a question of us taking care of each other and taking care of ourselves, regardless of what the political structure is. There's a lot of people that are really focused on what they can do right here. And now the other thing that was interesting was the reconnecting of the dice bre, right? This idea that there are twice as many Puerto Ricans on the mainland as there are in on the island of Puerto Rico, talking about five million plus in the continental United States in a little over three million here on the island of Puerto Rico. These two communities are now beginning to realize that they really need each other. There's always been that connection, but I think this is really resurfaced and reconnected. The. Gaspar the broader Diaz reporter who on the mainland, for example, who can exercise political power, right? Who can exercise their right to vote in elections, unlike Puerto Ricans who live on the island. And so that was another thread that I wasn't expecting to necessarily come across. Xena. I'd like to hear from one of the many residents on the island that you've been speaking with. This is Omar Rayo. He's a law student at the InterAmerican university of Puerto Rico, and it sounds like he had been toying with the idea of heading to the mainland after Maria, but then changed his mind. I'm staying definitely. Yeah, I'm staying. I'm not even playing with that idea anymore. Maybe at some point as a, you know, as a human being, I thought about, I thought about my future, but I'm convinced that my future easing here with my people with my family with my history, what we are actually doing here, he's trying to work out the creation of new politics. So turns into, what does Omar mean when he says a new politics and how. Popular is that I do. It's actually very popular, particularly among young people and young grassroots activists that we were talking to, and it's similar it sort of rape ring similar to me to what we're seeing in the United States mainland with movements like black lives matter and the women's movement more largely this idea that there's a little bit of a lack of faith in traditional structures and traditional ways of governance. And so what these students are looking for is more of a communal sense of something that came out of the storm is that people felt like they were able to communicate that they wanted to in ways that they hadn't before they were forced to interact in ways that they hadn't before..

Is going to happen I got a, story based on that, but I'll say this I please welcome back to the Armstrong and Getty show a semi frequent guests through the year Sam Stanton of the Sacramento bee reporting on an ISIS, member, apprehended in. Sacramento California San welcome? How are you sir Good are you excellent you know often when, we see these headlines it's some, nineteen, year old numskull. Who's been on the internet and the FBI gets onto him and semi lures him down the path that cetera but. This is definitely not one of those is it now this, one's quite different this is a forty five year old suspect, who's been living in the. United States for the past four years who the federal government, says is a member of former member, of ISIS and Al Qaeda and Iraq what's. He been doing for these four years in the United States you have a job as friends what what's going on he apparently moved initially to Salt Lake City in two. Thousand fourteen where he was a truckload, or for thrift store, he lists his ocupation here in Sacramento as a autumn Akanik and he was living in an apartment in an unincorporated area the county with his family so it seems to, me. Either abandoned. ISIS or he's, laying And low waiting for something Government says that you know he came here in twenty fourteen seeking asylum refugee and he according to the court documents lied about his background claim that you'd never. Participated in any violent activities the Iraqi court papers that are, on file here in Sacramento along with. The FBI documents view him otherwise they say that he planted I e dis along roadsides that he led cells of a q., I and ISIS in Iraq and that his hometown basically was. A hotbed of this activity and that is where he allegedly committed a murder in twenty fourteen of a former Iraqi police officer by the way that gets to our vetting process of some of these countries. That Trump's been talking about, but, that's. A different subject right right Do we have any evidence or any thought that. He's been up to anything untoward whilst in the United States, there's nothing to nothing to indicate that. At all other than the fact that the government claims he continued to lie about his background there was an interview with him, in may of twenty sixteen immigration authorities in which he's supposedly. Lied to them as well I'm not standing up for the guy but if he had if he did abandon ISIS whatever decide the different life you still have to lie back you buy your background to, be able to stay in, the, country Well. There there some really interesting allegations about this case though he went to Turkey in. Two thousand fourteen in June of that year he received permission to come to the US but the government says and instead. Of flying directly to this country he, went back to Iraq, and allegedly committed this murder, wow he came to United, States so oh boy well I. Assume now I get the the the shape of the plot yeah Iraqi thorough authorities who are after this, guy right the whole case is based on an extradition request Iraq they claim that they have witnesses who identified the suspect Omar. Mean as the man who led this ISIS convoy that killed this officer outside. His home, and so they're they're, asking our government to send him back to Iraq for trial so that's, gonna be, tied up in court in Sacramento for a while while, they determine whether there's enough evidence to extradite him they did say yesterday in court that the treaty would allow for his. Extradition, if they can prove that he should be returned I. Assume they've got is computers and phone and all that sort of stuff. And they're they're looking into that but I, suppose we don't know, if maybe his real commitment is to you, know destroying the current Acura Raqi government or something like, that. And he's laying low in, the. United States. Hoping, to get back to Iraq and continue, that as opposed to taking. On Great Satan it is the United States we don't know who knows We just we just don't. Know, there's, nothing in the court papers to. Indicate anything like that yeah yeah I see what Jack's driving after often allies of convenience, in regions like Iraq where you know if you're posed. The government you join up with, them for a while a center I'm not covering for the guy but, interesting. To see others. Plays out same Stanton. Of the. Sacramento bee Sam, thanks a, million we, appreciate the time thank you I. Gotta, admit, it's it's you know it's kind of chilling to be oh yeah, picture and not only, the nineteen year old numskull you're talking about but a hardened. Cop killing leader of ISIS. Hanging around in the US Got his, refugee papers and he's just living in a suburb Wow that's gotta be something That's got to be. Something you know we have we're our our new. Long-form podcast with Mike, lines, we were talking about US soldiers fighting in war. Zones and how difficult it is, to come, back to, the United States and do just regular jobs and everything like that either from PTSD. Standpoint or just you know the the you get, addicted to, the adrenaline and excitement and. Purpose of the job or whatever how about, this guy who was actually, killing. People roadside, bombs that was his whole thing and now I'm gonna go Salt Lake City unload. Boxes, on a. Truck, right I, mean you're either like super committed, to a long-term plan or he could, be completely crazy yeah that's true or you know. It's a necessity just, patients see he knows. He has, to, be, very very. Quiet and again back to the. Vetting process, so here's a guy they looked at him he says no I'm I'm. Okay I'm up with the United States all right here's sign your papers come on in and live in Salt Lake City and we got to have a, better, system, than that reminds me of when. That stowaway situation happened at San Jose airport in. The airports spokes lady said well he he did. It under the cloak Darkness no at night okay well, that's, certainly, can't be held responsible for that Well glad they busted the. Guy, yeah, and, I hope they. Learn.
