Trump to send 'surge' of hundreds of federal agents to cities
"Trump's dispatch of federal agents, first to Portland, Oregon and now to other cities has touched off an intense legal and political debate. David Martin has Our Sunday Journal. What are you doing? Use your words. What are you doing? Video of men in camouflage snatching a protester off the streets of Portland, Oregon, set off a pandemic of confusion and outrage. What is going on confusion about who these men are on outrage at President Trump's threat to do the same in other cities? We're looking in Chicago two. We're looking at New York. Look at what's going on all run by Democrats all run by very liberal Democrats. The Democratic mayor of Chicago, Lori Lightfoot, said she would welcome federal help to fight crime. No wants no part of what she's seeing on the streets of Portland. We don't need federal troops. We don't need unnamed secret federal agents roaming around the streets of Chicago, the agents important look like soldiers. In fact, they're members of the border patrol far from their usual missions of going after drug smugglers along the Mexican border. They're under the command of acting Director of Homeland Security. Chad Wolf. These officers are not military. They are civilian police officers. These police officers are not stormtroopers. They're not the Gestapo if some have described them, there has been a tremendous a tremendous amount of false information out there. Mark Morgan, head of customs and Border protection. Provided a citizen's guide to the insignia on their uniforms Patrol. Clearly police. It's marked on the front and the back clearly every single agent a CZ. Portland's protests continued in the aftermath of George forwards death. Trump administration moved in to protect federal building from Vandals. These individuals carry lasers, baseball bats. Explosive fireworks, metal pipes, last bottles, accelerants and other weapons, all targeting federal facilities and federal law enforcement. There are plenty of protesters who do not fit that description. Women who call themselves the wall of moms. Naval Academy graduate Christopher David, who stood his ground but did not appear to threaten the federal agents. They kept hitting me and he eventually hit my hand and broke it. I needed to stay as calm as possible. I had no idea what these guys were capable of. Even the mayor doesn't want these federal agents inner city got hit with tear gas provoked the mayor calls it urban warfare. Paul Rosenzweig, who served in the Department of Homeland Security. DHHS under Republican President George Bush calls it unprecedented. Never have I seen it before where the federal government has imposed its will on the state and says We're going to do this mission whether you want us here or not. It's unprecedented. Is it legal? It is probably on the border lines of legal The department was created in the anxious days after 9 11 when another attack was fear terrorists attacks by Al Qaeda or a nuclear weapon or a biological threat. Never did We contemplate that they actually be used against American citizens, and that's where the authority has been stretched beyond all recognition. And here is what most people don't know about D H S. The Department of Homeland Security has more law enforcement resource is at its disposal than the rest of the federal government combined. This is the kind of first time that the American public is seeing that the reality of that Acting DHHS. Chief Wolf, who traveled to Portland to inspect the damage, says it's all about protecting federal property. But in addition to tear Gates, there is Mohr than a whiff of politics in the air. The acting secretary has chosen to essentially declare war on a segment of the American populace. It's transparently a political exercise. Transparently political. What do you mean? This is, I think clearly part and parcel off President Trump's ongoing Ah political effort to demonize the left to try and make this election about Cultural issues and to scare the American public into voting for him. However, the battle of Portland and there is something else at stake. What does it do to the image and reputation of the Department of Homeland Security? This incident is going to do lasting damage to the department. I think that the department is a necessary component of our national security apparatus. But this is going to do nothing but give ammunition to those who think off the department as a rogue. Police force. That ought not to exist.
Muscling up to China and 25 years since Srebrenica
"Tom Switzer, he and welcome to another episode off between the lines now today on the program will be commemorating the twenty fifth anniversary of Europe's worst massacre since the Holocaust in ninety, ninety, five more than eight thousand people died in Shrimp Nitsa. The town was supposed to be a U N protected safe haven in the vicious civil war that tore Yugoslav apart instead the civilians ended up being massacred by Bosnian Serbs. Were lightning fast with their superior weapons. They easily overran the lightly. I'm Bosnian government troops and the token full civilian peacekeepers. The UN's Valley to protect the civilians inspired Washington to launch unilateral action against Serbia and end the civil war. Would things be the same today now? That's later in the program, but first defense. Last week the Morrison. Government launched a defence strategy and force structure review now the move signals a major shift away from the strategy outlined in the last defence white paper. Remember that just four years ago in two thousand sixteen. It plotted out Australia's strategic costs for the next decade. But that White Paper has as we know been rapidly overtaken by Vince covert China or that now the new review has promised two hundred and seventy billion dollars over the next decade to enhance Australia's defence capabilities with renewed focus on areas like Saba and spice capabilities and the possible development of hop sonic weapons will be fitting aircraft with long-range anti-ship missiles, increasing underwater surveillance and boosting fuel ammunitions reserves. Now, underscoring the seriousness of the shift, the Prime Minister even drew comparisons to the nineteen thirties and the lead up to world. War Two that period of the nineteen thirties. Is Been Something I've been revisiting on a very regular basis and when you connect by the economic challenges and the global uncertainty. It can be very haunting, but is the money too much or not enough is going to all the right places, and we'll do enough to safeguard Australia from China's increasing assertiveness and is rapidly growing military capabilities. What's the role of Australia's diplomacy? And all of this will joining me to discuss this at three distinguished guests. By skill is professor of Asia Pacific Security Studies at Macquarie University Holiday Bites. Thank you good to be here Melissa Conley. Tar is a research fellow at the Asia Institute at the University of Melbourne. Hi There Melissa could to speak again Tom. And Pay. The Jennings is executive director of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute. Tom No. Can you talk us through the top of scenarios and potential conflicts that the defense review is preparing us for the scenario that the review is focusing on is one involving a high end conventional conflict, so I've gone to the days of stabilization operations in t more Counterterrorism operations in Afghanistan This document is preparing foresight on onsite conflict. Involving countries that have sophisticated military forces. And, of course, the document doesn't say. I don't think it would be reasonable to expect it to say. That China is the problem. But let me tell you China is the problem that is the now neoplasia competitive that way of thinking about when we think about what's adequate in terms of the topic of military capability we need to have. and to does reflect to change. From past years Tom I recall when I started by defense career, we were thinking much more about the risks presented by Indonesia, and the so called low level in cushions in the northwest. Of course, that's no longer features in anyone's strategic thinking. Really it's about China and the risks that the People's Republic is presenting to all of its neighbors in abroad since in the Indo Pacific region and beyond I cabinet crudely putting it some sites laying the groundwork for fortress Australia US sign. This is preparing us to join a potential use LID. Containment slash war against China for example to protect Taiwan Peter Jennings. I think that is it covers a spectrum of possibilities. One possibility which I think is Epson you were in terms of language of the document is that we might conceivably end up having to face military conflict without being able to rely on the direct combat support of the United States, and that's what leads to discussions around extra stockpiling munitions and fuel insightful. But I think in general terms. Yes, the expectation is that Australia. Through its history has been a country that forms coalitions usually have like minded partners, the share the same types of objectives. And the the plan will design the Defense Force. Really gives us the capacity to do that with Rachel Ellis lecture, example, Japan but also with our traditional ally the United States okay bates skill. You've recently completed a review of China's defense capabilities and its recent military modernization, specifically looking at the implications for Australia Wind you expect the Peo- The People's Liberation Army and its navy. When do you expect them to have the capability to project power as far as Australia annual Pacific knives, well in many respects Tom, they already can I mean they have the long range missile capabilities to do that? Know as a from a standoff position launched from their own from their own homeland against hours. But what I think, the the new strategy is looking at is really the development of capability over the next ten fifteen twenty years, and that's by the Chinese own own acknowledged calendar that they would be able to by that time of mass, a large enough capability, both in terms of its long range strike, you know striking from their own homeland, but also bill to project. Project Power passed the so-called first and second island change and being a position to more directly threatened through those platforms Australian security. So you know we're talking ten or fifteen year window here and I think given the time it does take to try and respond to develop the the deterrent and defense capabilities for Australia. That's that's you know that's in some ways a short window. for Australia to be mobilizing in reaction Melissa Tali. What's the role of a strong diplomacy and all these well I think it needs to be growl. And one of the concerns when we look at the deteriorating strategic environment is we think all that's a defense problem? And so when the prime minister launches the strategic update with those comparisons with the nineteen thirties. It pushes US toward seeing in purely military terms but we don't just want to say things in that security lands, we want to think about all of the parts about national power projection, so that's diplomacy and development as well as defense I think if if people thought about it I think what we invest in all three strongly, but that's not where it is if you look at federal budget fifty. Fifty nine billion to defense and less than seven billion to diplomacy and development together the lowest point with ahead in our history and I think we missing that opportunity. If we don't take US seriously, the way that diplomacy and development can shape things in the world so I was struck. Today was a defendant looking at the latest poll on what are the major concerns that Australians have at the moment of the top threats in the world and the first five, a role nontraditional that drought, environment, disaster, climate change, pandemics, and downtown, global economy, and those places where you know military spending isn't going to help shape that environment. So we need to have an effect on those. We need to be thinking much more about what we can do in the diplomacy and development to mind Peter Jennings. What would you say in to Melissa's observations? Because they reflect a certain mindset that that perhaps we should be focused more on non state actors rather than say China for instance well, I think all of these you know threats that have to be taken seriously. I'm and simply because we're living in the middle of a pandemic for example, doesn't the climate change is gone away in this no longer going to present a problem to us. I guess what I'd say. Is that the you know the five things Melissa listed? That were in the featured in the low e Poland terms of popular concerns. Are also the things which could. In different ways late to the risks of conflict escalating in the Indo Pacific region generally so You know my my view, please while I would like to see spending on diplomacy increased. While I. Say Development Assistance is being something which is effectively the United soft in of Australian power, and the military is the hot end of Australian power. I think. The message against all of these areas is that we have just been underinvesting for decades underinvesting for decades, so we're we're all. High fiving ourselves at just reaching about two percent of gross national product, being spent on defense, but that is compared to what we spending in cold or years, which was sometimes between three and a half percent in four percent of rustic product. So what we have grown used to Tom I would say is. Free written on the United. States code tiles of security for for decades. We've dramatically under. Invested in the things that we need to do to strengthen Australia's position, not just militarily, but also diplomat. A now. We're rather surprised to hear the news that Gosh the bill is a lot more expensive than we really thought. It was only if you've got that confidence in the US. and. In fact, the whole trump stories, the story of the Americans really big being fed up with the rest of the world, thinking that the US can fund the bill for their security, so we're going to have to do more and I think we're going to have to do it against multiplicity of areas not. Justin sought the defense organization. We'll some scholars such as you want and James Current from the University of Sydney. They say that this document sounds a lot like an acknowledgement that the US might not always be there to help us out. By are we starting to plan for more independent Australian defense posture I think it would be a wise move to keep that option open when you think of the capabilities that the Chinese developing in which do have a direct pose a direct threat to Australia or could do so. In many respects, the I think the types of threats that you might not expect an immediate or even timely response on the part of the United States what I'm thinking here. Cyber capabilities is a huge priority for the Chinese. We already know what they see the sort of capability. They can wield against Australia and that's not the sort of thing you can expect a kind of cavalry to. Lead the charge from from Washington to come to Australia's defence slowly long range strike capability on the part of the Chinese capability. They already have in which are going to continue to develop. which could threaten Australia down the road now? These are capabilities that I think that Australia's going to have to develop their own defenses for. They can certainly do that with United States, but again it's not necessarily the sort of threat that we would expect some sort of traditional ally joint response not to make it well. Some of are in listeners will email me and they'll say that if Uncle Sam struggles to police. It's own CDs. Melissa. How on Earth Can Uncle Sam Police? The Asia Pacific region in the face of a rising China. What's your sense about us staying power in the next decade or two in look? It's difficult One of the things that strategic update looks at is more threats to the global rules order, and unfortunately the you know, the US is part of that. the US is not along with the strategies interest on things like global trading system, and a number of international issues like global health where we would say you need to be supporting. A Global Response that said I don't think the strategic update will be read negatively in. Washington, it's my guess. it very clearly couched in terms that I think the US will lock about Australia contributing more and having more self. that could be seen as a statement that we think that the US might not have outback, but can also be seen as something that the US has been for for a long time. I particularly liked a few elements of the update things like making sure that we have. You know material ammunition You know that aren't going to be disrupted. Buckle supply trying having more capability eight industrial cut suffering capability here antiques fuel reserves, which is not as long sane as an issue for us, so I mean those are things that are worth investing in. Regardless of US resolve because as we've seen from COVID, we know that supply chain can be disrupted very quickly and easily, and it's worth having eligibilities. Cepeda Jennings bite skill and Melissa Conley Toilet and Melissa. The Pacific step up last year. That realigned Australia's development budget to deal with some of the strategic challenges posed by China in the Pacific Do you think it goes far enough? The step up was followed recently by strategies new International Development Policy Partnerships for recovery, and that's made it very clear that strategies focus should be on the Pacific and also southeast. Asia including. Indonesia and team August. I think that has a very clear statement about what we want. In the region of being entrusted trusted development partner and influencing those societies that we think positive for four region. Again you're going to. You're going to say you. Hear this from me all the time, but again the problem is that we not really making much invasive lunch, so partnerships for recovery head no new money it talked about the massive challenges that covered as as creating for for the for the Pacific, and for for our region broadly, and the only funding announcement was that we're going to repurpose the money. We would have spent on sending Australian. Volunteers in scholarship holders. And we're GONNA use that so I I suppose I. Feel a little bit with all the areas, not actually include district update in that as well that what we've seen through the foreign policy, White Paper and International Development Policy through to to the defense. Strategic Updike is. We talk about how. how? What a time! These these frosty leaving a contested difficult awful environment that we've now got to leave in and the Dow L. Easy Times over, and then we say, and we're not gonNA. Give any new money so I mean the defense announcement is essentially just that we're going to continue to you know, extrapolate out the money that was planned to be spent in the twenty twenty six, and we're going to extrapolate that out to twenty thirty terabytes skill. Do we risk getting into a bidding war for influence in the Pacific? I don't know if it's a risk. If it is a risk worth worth taking. I mean obviously the Pacific region is so extremely important Australia's future. Both for for defense reasons for regional engagement for diplomatic reasons, developing reasons and the like. so It's quite possible that we're entering in a more competitive phase with China in this. SITES WRIST BYTES I'm talking about more the budgetary concerns he because in the wake of the Corona Virus Crosses. There'll be serious limits on how we can spend on these things scholley. Yes, there is and party left to be be developed for that, but you know when you're talking about your own backyard. I mean I I. I don't think it's the kind of country that can simply. Pretended it's by itself getting back pay to Jennings to the region, generally in the rise of what. Angus Campbell is of the Defence Force he's talked about the rise of political warfare, the idea of grey zone warfare things like cyber attacks, economic coercion influence operations that fall below the traditional threshold of war. He says we need a whole of government response to it. I, you seeing that whole of government approach happening in Campbell, or is this Manley focus on defense and the spy agency so far Peter Jennings. It probably is focused on the national security agency's Tom. That's not too surprising because you'd expect them to sort of pick up on the risks I. But General Campbell is right. It does need to be all government is. There's a whole lot of things happening there that simply cannot and should not be done by defense organizations. and. I think that realization is slowly dawning. Along as both of the speakers have said that actually ladyship comes with cost of infrastructure is going to play that role, but you know, give you a small example of this we. We have lost the ability to broadcast into the South Pacific and Southeast Asia. In a way that we used to very successfully over over decades to give us the capacity to do that. We're probably talking about you know that. He million a year forty million a year, which sounds a lot of defend. It's nothing if you're in the Defense Department. Let me tell you. But you need to be able to do things like that. To be the truth teller in the region to actually tell the region that there are alternatives to Chinese Communist Party authoritarianism I think that's what's needed with responding to this grey zone on threat. Is Actually to be the truth teller. In this part of the will and getting our system in Cambridge used to that reality to understanding what needs to be done. To starting at different type of conversation with our region. With our own people for that matter that that is a sort of a psychological change which I can see happening, but we're not quite yet. There's a bit of work still to be done to get to that point Melissa. Conley Tyler. Is, just responding on that. I agree entirely with what pitcher saying on on broadcasting. It's a small investment, such a an increasing influence. It should be Brian and I hope that did that's being seen. I think having defense voices. I will help a lot in a banks, seriously I'm but just went. When you ask Tom Balaton host government and what's happening there? There are some really good examples, so for example win. This Pacific step pop started an office of the Pacific was established in that apartment and tried and each job. He's to be that coordinating body, and it's bringing together the. The defense, the development and the diplomacy in a way that he's gone to maximize our influence. and I've noticed this a lot more discussion about that that three. How do you bring defense development diplomacy communities together? I'm involved in initiate the Pacific. Four Day and I think a lot of people not talking about what more we can do for that that joined up coordination to make the most about national instruments by skill. You're an expert on China. The elephant in the room of course is China doing need to be careful not to overestimate China's military strength. What about the weaknesses? Exactly right I mean you have to know your enemy's weakness as well as their strengths in the case of China, they are undertaking enormous reforming organization effort. They're pouring billions of dollars into new capabilities, but there's a lot of things we need to recognize I. Mean One is that the Chinese have not fought a shooting war and more than forty years. They are have no. They have zero experience in high end combat against a serious. Adversary, scenario, so that's not to downplay them, but to understand that they've got enormous obstacles to overcome that day. Themselves acknowledge that they themselves. No, they have to overcome, and that's why we had this window that we've been talking about. A fifteen to twenty years. to try and develop capabilities to get in front of the kinds of things that the Chinese want to bring to bear around. Around, twenty thirty or twenty, thirty, five, twenty, forty, paid-up Melissa to be continued. Thanks so much for being on our in. Thank you, tell my pleasure. Thank you, Tom. That was paid jennings. He's executive director of the Australian strategic pulsing suit by skill professor of Asia Pacific Security Studies at Macquarie University and Melissa Commonly Tyler. She's a research fellow at the Asia Institute at the University of Melbourne. These between the lines with Tom Switzer. Coming next, we're going to replay a version of a segment from between the lines. I 'cause commemorating the massacre of Bosnian Muslims at shredded Nitsa on the eleventh of July nodding ninety. Five twenty five years ago this week. More than eight thousand people were killed by Serb forces. It was the worst massacre. Europe had seen since the Holocaust. Serve softening up Trevor Nature for the army's final push into the town. Town of course was supposed to be a safe haven protected by the United Nations, but the civilians ended up being sitting ducks as I woke Larry. Hollingsworth Remembers I. Myself Feel Devastated and ashamed I was there with them? When we told them that it was a safe haven I watched. Many of these people walk in with the minimal possessions into shreds, knowing that it was a safe haven, and now they're fleeing out because we've let them down, let them down to the extent that within dies. About Twenty three thousand women and children were deported, and about eight thousand Muslim men and boys left behind where executed and buried in mass graves. Now, reports from the time described, frightening scenes stiffen overawed from medicines on frontier. Speaking he. Loading some of the children and women into buses, but there's no indication as to where it was buses, going with seen some horrifying streaming, going on women and children going into the buses being taken away from their family This was going on with a lot of crying a lot of panicking. The slaughter had been planned carefully and executed with precision. All the wall Dutch. Pace is literally stood by, and did nothing indeed even when the Serb assault on Srebrenica was imminent. in-command is still rejected Kohl's racetracks. Positions. Pope John Paul. The second declared ribbon Nitsa a defeat for civilization as media reports begins to reveal the scale of the unfolding tragedy. The UN says nine hundred thousand people are still unaccounted for. About some became clear as government soldiers emerging from the forest in central Bosnia, told of horrific massacres at the hands of the Serbs one young. People executing them on spot, but this didn't come out of the blue. By the time this massacre took place the civil war that tore the former Yugoslavia. Repot was heading into its fourth year. More than a million people have been displaced, and the world became familiar with a new term ethnic cleansing. So? Who is to blame for these well? Let's start with the United. Nations from ninety two to ninety, five shrivel Nitsa was the world's first union declared civilian syphon. It was supposed to to her aggression. It was supposed to aggression and set the scene for political negotiations to end hostilities between the Bosnian Serbs, and Muslims, but the UN soldiers in the SIPHONS. They were bedeviled by problems. If you declare an area safe haven in the name of the United Nations. Nations if you tell the people if they are safe in the name of the United Nations you have got to put the troops on the ground, and it's no good for politicians say yes, we go for safe havens, but we're not gonNA put the troops meanwhile the Europeans vacillated and equivocated failing miserably to cope with across at its own back door. America was also reluctant to get involved as then President George Bush senior explained in Nani Nani to. I? Something because I learned something from Vietnam. I am not going to commit US forces until I know what the mission is to the military. Tell me that it can be completed until I know how they can come out. You have ancient rivalries that have cropped up as as Yugoslavia's dissolved or getting dissolved, and it isn't going to be solved by sending in the eighty second airborne, and although on the campaign trail that Ye Bill Clinton pledged to reverse the appeasement of that bushes of Belgrade as President Clinton allowed the Balkans to bleed for three more years. French President Jacques Chirac was moved to declare quote, the position of the leader of the free world vacant. Trinite Sur changed all that having done nothing the before during the mass killings in Rwanda Clinton was galvanized into action, and crucially he cut the United Nations out of the Decision Chine on August thirty Washington led a night bombing campaign against the Serbs the NATO action began early this morning. The harsh light of fires and explosions coloring the night sky. Some people watched the bombardment from their houses, but after more than ten thousand deaths here in the last three years, most Sarajevans had given up any hope of outside intervention. Last night it came on a scale which could yet change the course of this war by the end of not ninety five sixty thousand nine hundred troops, including twenty thousand Americans were on the ground in Bosnia. Pace was declared. The BOEKEN's wars ended only because the US finally acted. He's President Clinton in November ninety five my fellow Americans in this new era there are still times when America and America alone can and should make the difference for peace. The terrible war in Bosnia is such a case nowhere. Today is the need for American leadership. More stark are more immediate than in. In Bosnia in the years since the Mexica Europe inaction was heavily criticised, and the US was held up for its global leadership in particular for its unilateral humanitarian intervention. This is when the US secretary. Of State. Madeleine Albright said America was the indispensable nation, and that idea would fade into the justification of the Iraq invasion in two thousand and three as a war of liberation, but he's a question with the US intervene. If the shrivel Nitsa massacre happened today from the standpoint of twenty twenty, we might ask if the era of US unilateral humanitarian intervention is well and truly over.

Listen to me, and get a we have people, it's more than just Jay Powell. We have people on the fed really weren't, you know, they're not might people. So how has this changed the environment in which the fed must determine whether economic conditions warrant a rate cut are fed reporter, Nick Tim Roche has been speaking to Charlie Turner from Washington. Well, let's be up front about this Nick has any fed chief ever faced such pressure before, from a president actually, yes, you could probably say that this is something fed cheers in the postwar period, have faced, what's different about President Trump? Is that his criticism has been much more public of the fed? So just to. Go back in time in the nineteen sixties, the fed chairman by the name of William mcchesney Morgan was very unpopular with president Johnson recall Johnson was trying to boost domestic spending while fighting the Vietnam war, and he did not like the fact that the fed was raising borrowing costs to limit inflation. And so he was very critical privately of Martin. There's a story about how he pushed him up against the wall said my boys are dying in Vietnam. And you won't give me the money I need. So there is a history of presidents putting pressure usually in private on the fed chair. What's different about this president is that he does it pretty often in public via Twitter via interviews or off the cuff statements to reporters on his way to Marine One helicopter. And so it creates a perception problem for the fed because the fed doesn't want to be seen by the markets is responding to anything but the economic and financial. Data that they analyze that could change the way investors. Think about inflation, and bond yields, and so forth. You described three challenges fed chair pal is navigating at this point. What are they so the fed has to set the right interest rate of the right time? The fed has to explain clearly, what they're doing and why they're doing it, and those are two challenges that every fed leader faces, but the third one is unique as we've talked about. And that is he has to deal with this public pressure, campaign, very loud, criticism from the president something that we haven't seen since the early nineteen nineties President George Bush senior was the last president who even said publicly what he thought the fed should be doing President Clinton and his two successors Bush, and Obama maintained this rule where they were not going to comment on the fed, and Clinton's advisers convinced him. This was a good policy for them because they had seen how President Bush. This is a first President Bush had called on Greenspan to lower rates. And Greenspan didn't go along with it. And so Clinton's advisers told him, look, you really don't have anything to gain by pressuring the fed. They're going to do what they think they need to do. And you putting pressure on them isn't gonna make their life any easier. They may feel like they have to do the opposite to to, you know, to look independent so Clinton and then Bush forty three and Obama never said anything about the fed, and that was a tradition that continued up until about a year and a half into Donald Trump's presidency doesn't fed chairman pal. Face pressure to cut rates for the rest of the year, including at the June meeting. So the Fed's next meeting is in less than two weeks on June.
Explainer 167: Why has Trump ramped up his war on the environment?
"As a people, we want and need economic growth. But now we must also expect environmental responsibility and respect the natural world. It was a Republican President, George Bush, senior, and not democrat to help stay through one of the most ambitious pieces of climate change legislation today, eight amending the Clean Air Act in nineteen ninety two limit air pollution, and tackle, everything from urban smoke to acid rain while his son fad less. Well, refusing to ratify the key Oto protocol in two thousand and one and helping tank brand America around the world. George Hw mate, an important point, protecting the environment and advancing big business didn't need to be mutually exclusive when one does, if the current Oakmont of the White House, don't. Out, J Trump has ever listened to that speech. We've seen enough of this stalemate. It's time to clear the air. You know, I think we will indeed since moving into Pennsylvania Avenue in January of two thousand seventeen Trump's administration has mounted a concerted effort to refu- climate change science and loosen regulations in favor of the fossil fuel industry. So how did the forty fifth president of the US become such a champion and chief of the environmental skeptics? And they say as and why as ever with Trump. The answer is complicated and contradictory Trump's musings, own the environment, actually predate his ascendancy to the presidency taking his favorite communications medium Twitter. He regularly lamb bastard. His predecessor Barrack Obama for wasting federal money tackling global climate change and as recently as two thousand fifteen he cooled the whole thing a hoax. All of this with the global warming and that a lot of it's a hoax. It's a hoax. I mean it's a money making industry. Okay. But then, just as we're starting to think with seeing patent Donald Trump before his many about tons of trying to throw us off the scent in two thousand nine for example, he signed an open letter that challenge diploma to come up with a more meaningful climate change policy will recently, his stowed, the importance of clean-air, and who can forget, those clean co comments while allowing measures that will undermine it often his framed, his stones as a business competitively issue right now. We're at the cleanest, we've ever been. That's very important to me. But if went clean, but every other place on earth is dirty. That's not so good. Of course, actions, speak louder than woods and ever since the now shamed and departed fossil fuel politics. Scott Pruitt was installed to lead the Environmental Protection Agency. We knew something was a mess, and no action speaks, louder than the decision to put after the Paris climate agreement. A huge blow even if many of the US's largest companies have found to continue following its rulebook. More recently, the assault on climate change has talked people working in government agencies pressuring staff to avoid using the words climate change in speeches. They have also been moved meant how scientific studies carried out by doing away with worst case scenario projections, and several members of Trump's inner circle are pushing to create a climate change panel. That will challenge environmental assessments, according to a recent New York Times report, the chasm between George H W Bush, and Trump may simply be a reflection of radically different times, the age of political decorum, and bipartisanship Bush, happily mentioned the Democrats in the room in that speech along gone. Meaning a compromise on the environment is unlikely. And then there are the people that Trump has chosen to surround himself with many of them, committed climate change deniers, just listen to this Arctic Council speech by secretary of state, Mike Pompeo earlier this month. Arctic is at the forefront of opportunity and abundance, it houses thirteen percent of the world's undiscovered oil thirty percent of its undiscovered gas and an abundance of uranium rare earth minerals gold diamonds, and millions of square miles of untapped. Resources fisheries glory, dark, money donors, so competent, knee, described by New Yorker journalist, and Monaco, big interview, e Jane man, also doubtlessly have a part to play thanks to the Mercer's and the cokes, deep pockets among others, what was once fringe thinking is now part at the Republican mainstream and that includes the environment. We know that Trump and embrace of science quackery conspiracy theories doesn't have the best grasp of the facts, and whether it's someone who has the presidential ear distorted vision that the US will lose out to China, if it abandoned fossil fuels, despite the as in power moved to dominate the clean energy market, all simply watching too much FOX and friends, the whole climate crisis as they call. It is not only fake news. It's fake science. Remain be sure. But that also doesn't mean that we should doubt for one moment. The convictions of this administration. My administration is putting an end to the war on call for Monaco in New York. I'm as Docker.

And Senator while I absolutely want to get your thoughts about the former president the late President Bush in just a moment. Let's launch into what these lawmakers are. Doing taking the step to keep the government functioning just an extra couple of weeks. But it expires on December twenty first that seems like they risk a shutdown before Christmas. Give me your insight high with hope that the testimonials given to former President George Bush, what sheriff kind of as an inspiration and get both sides to put the Animesh that exist today in the political rhetoric, which is so horrific put it aside and try to emulate the kind of things that he is known for bringing people together, we should not be closing down the government. It would be a tragedy. And I would hope that the president would she's a wisdom of acting more Bush like more compromising. Yes, she wanna chic certain. Things but building the wall. Is not the end all and Beal getting some of reform or the promise of reform on immigration is important. But nothing show important that you would shut down the government create all kinds of chaos, and then the finger pointing continues, and it gets worse. The animist to political atmosphere gets worse. So use this as an opportunity you try to come together. There's nothing worthwhile in bringing about a shutdown of government it wrong. So it now depends upon the leadership in the house and the Senate and real presidential leadership. Sir. We've been asking a lot of our guests if they have any personal remembrances of President Bush at this time, if you have any well, let me say he he's so well known for Desert Storm and he demonstrated. What you do you bring your allies? Together, you go in with L overwhelming force. I was there in Kuwait. When. We we took over the capitol. I flew there at that time. And I wanna tell you there's something he's not giving too much recognition. And that was his victory in Panama knocking out Manuel Noriega again going in with a superior force hitting them hard getting rid of a brutal dictator who is creating tremendous disruption in that area. He didn't let them get away with it. And he did that early on in his administration show hats off to a man who knew how to wage war when to do it was not a bully. And so when he said something sent out a message people got it. What I see today is that too much bombastic rhetoric, and when you should follow through. There is no follow-through talk with China. And yet they're pouring in Fenton. Al killing our kids, creating helping to exacerbate this is opiate. Epidemic. Mr President wake up. That's what you wanna to say you stop it now because the government of China controls that so they're pouring poison into our country. That that's when you get tough and let it be known. You do it behind the scenes, but you tell them we're not gonna tolerate this. And then I hear about this blockade of that the Iranians are are threatening. They should be called once and for all you tried it closed at peninsula cut off oil to the world, and they will be Chevere consequences, but get on go out in a bombastic way, you'd let it be known behind the scenes, and you make sure your secretary of defense gives them that message because world leaders know that if matters says we're gonna come in you better stop this nonsense. They'll listen, you know, it's very interesting. We only have about twenty seconds. But politics, aside, you were talking about how the late President George Bush was able to wage war and a quote proper way.

But this is your chance to tell your story. And I hope you have a chance to tell us everything you wanna tell us, but the bird is not on you. To disprove the allegations made the burden under our system when you accuse somebody of criminal conduct is on the person making the accusation. Now, I understand we're not this isn't a trial. Like I said, but I just wanted to make sure that we understood. It's hard to reconstruct. What happened thirty six years ago? And I appreciate what you said about Dr Ford. That perhaps she has had an incident some point in her life, and you. Are sympathetic to that. And. But your reputation is on the line, and I hope people understand the gravity of the charges made against you. And what a fair process looks like. Thank you, Mr Chairman, Johnny clubs are soda democrat. And you understand we have this constitutional duty to advise and consent. And for me when this evidence came forward, I decided that I needed to look at this. And I needed to find out about it. And I needed to ask you questions about it as well as others that were involved. So again, I'm not gonna take the same approach as my colleagues here talk about Don Mcgann or any of this. Why don't you just ask the president? Mrs. Dr Ford can't do this. We clearly haven't been able to do this. But just ask the president to reopen the FBI investigation the committee is to you're doing the investigation. I'm here to answer your questions, and I should say one thing Senator klobuchar which is. I appreciate. Our meeting together. And I appreciate how you handle the prior hearing and a lot of respect for you. Thank you. All of that aside. Here's the thing. You could actually just get this open. So that we can talk to these witnesses and the FBI can do it instead of us and you've come before us, but we have people like Mark judge who Dr Ford says was a witness to this. We have this polygraph expert at that. My colleagues were raising issues about the polygraph. We would like to have that person come before us. And I just think if we could open this up. I don't I don't mean to interrupt. But I guess I am. But Mark judge has provided sworn statements saying this didn't happen. And that I'd never did. Or would do we would like the FBI tomato to follow up and ask him questions. You know, we talked about past nomination processes, and you talked about those and I note that President George Bush in the Nita hill Justice Thomas case, he opened up the FBI investigation and let questions being asked. And I think it was helpful for people. So was his decision reasonable. I don't know the circumstances of that when I know centers. I'm he he he just the circumstances are that he opened up the investigation. So the FBI could ask them questions on twenty. He opened up the background check. I'm here to answer questions about my yearbook or about you know, what I okay. Or, you know. Okay. I'm not gonna ask about the yearbook. So most people have done some drinking in high school and college. And many people even struggle with alcoholism and binge drinking my own dad struggled with alcoholism, most of his life. And he got in trouble for it. And there were consequences. He is still in a at age ninety and he's sober. And in his words, he was pursued by grace, and that's how he got through this. So in your case, you have said here and other places that you never drank so much that you didn't remember what happened? But yet we have heard not under oath. But we have heard your college roommates say that you did drink frequently. These ornery news report that you would sometimes be belligerent. Another classmate said, it's not credible for you to say, you didn't have memory lapses. So drinking is one thing. I don't I actually don't think. That's the second quotes, correct? On the first, quote, if you wanted I provided some material that still redacted about the situation with the freshman year roommate? And I don't really want to repeat that in a public hearing. But just so, you know, there were three people in a room. Dave white Jamie Roach in me, and it was a contentious situation where Jamie did not like Dave white. I was at all. And I mean this, okay. Dave white came back from from home one weekend. And Jamie Roach had moved all his furniture came out into the out into the courtyard. Okay. And so he walks in and so that's your source on that. So there's all drinking is one and there's much more. And look at the redacted port portion of what I said, I don't want to repeat the public here will can I just ask one more question that information about okay, drinking is one thing. But the concern is about truthfulness and in your written testimony. You said sometimes you had too many drinks. I was there ever a time when you drink so much that you couldn't remember what happened or part of what happened the night before. I know. I remember what happened and I think you've probably had beer center. And so you're saying there's never been a case where you drank so much the didn't remember what happened the night before? Or part of what happened? It's you're asking about blackout. I don't know have you. Could you answer the question judge just to you? That's not happened. Is that your answer? Yeah. And I'm curious if you have I have no drinking problem, nor do I. Okay. Thank you. Senator hatch since this FBI thing keeps coming up all the time. Let's get back to basics. First of all anybody, including Anne Senator. That's brought up the issue could ask for an FBI investigation. What the FBI does. Gather information for the White House, then the file sent to the committee for us to make our own evaluations. We're capable of making our own determination about the accuracy of any of those allegations. The F B I has put out a statement over. Now, I suppose it's a month ago, clearly stating this matter is close as far as as the the letter being sent to them, and there is no federal crime to investigate Senator Senate Democrats hope for the FBI to draw any conclusions on this matter. I'm going to remind you what Joe Biden said now, I said, this is my statement. But maybe maybe people aren't listening when I say, maybe they won't even hear this Joe by quote, the next person who refers to an FBI report as being worth anything, obviously doesn't understand anything the FBI explicitly does not does not in this or any other gays reach a conclusion period, they say he said, she said they said period. So when people waving FBI report before you're even bring it up now as something perspectively. That wasn't. It needs quote understand. They do not they do not. They do not reach conclusions. They do not make recommendation. Sara chairman. Mr Chairman, I say for the record that actually we have asked you said that nobody's asked the FBI or we could ask the FBI, I actually have others have. And I think that the issue is that part of what an F B I report does is to investigate and seek either corroborating or skull Pretoria evidence. It's not so much the conclusion that it draws as the breadth of the evidence that is sought out through the investigation and the difference between what somebody might say to an FBI agent when they're being examined. And for instance, Mr. judges letter signed by his lawyer said in it's just a different thing. And I believe still that this is the first background investigation in the history of background investigations that hasn't been reopened when new credible. Derogatory information was raised about the subject about the nominee. So you know, I. I just want to let the point you made stand without referencing. Sheldon Whitehouse democrat of Rhode Island talking with Chuck Grassley the chance Ed this is case. The letter was sent to the FBI the FBI sends the White House with a letter saying the case is closed. We're taking a breakdown. We're taking a break..

"Decided that I needed to look at this. And I needed to find out about it. And I needed to ask you questions about it as well as others that were involved. So again, I'm not gonna take the same approach as my colleagues here talk about Don Mcgann or any of this. Why don't you just ask the president? Mrs. Dr Ford can't do this. We clearly haven't been able to do this. But just ask the president to reopen. The FBI investigation. I think the committee is to you're doing the investigation. I'm here to answer your questions, and I shouldn't say one thing Senator Coburn club, which is. I appreciate. Our meeting together. And I appreciate how you handled the prior hearing and a lot of respect for you. Thank you. Our data aside. Here's the thing you could actually just get this open. So that we can talk to these witnesses and the FBI can do it instead of us and you've come before us, but we have people like Marchetti who Dr Ford says was a witness to this. We have this polygraph expert that my colleagues were raising issues about the polygraph. We would like to have that person come before us. And I just think if we could open this up. I don't mean to interrupt. But I guess I am. But Mark judge has provided sworn statements saying this didn't happen. And that I'd never did. Or would do we would like the FBI to be able to follow up and ask him questions. You know, we talked about past nomination processes, and you talked about those and I note that President George Bush in NET hill Justice Thomas case, he opened up the FBI investigation and let questions being asked. And I think it was helpful for people. So was his decision reasonable. I don't know the circumstances of that when I know centers. I'm he he just the circumstances are that he opened up the investigation. So the FBI could ask some questions on twenty. He opened up the background check. I'm here to answer questions about my yearbook or about, you know. Okay. I worked, sir. Okay. I'm.

"One seven two three nine ninety three ninety three face mankini cats radio so we talked last week at the end of last week about a story from the ap the associated press and the story was was that immigrants were being thrown out of the military and no reason was being given and they weren't being given honorable discharges which would have allowed them stay in the country and gotten them citizenship they were given this questionable discharge which left their immigration status in in limbo that's the way the ap wrote the story and of course it became this really big deal oh short trump's just going after immigrants what i said at the time is that we don't know enough about the story yet from based on what i'm looking at here there better be a reason for this but there wasn't enough information now we know more information had seems rather clear that the associated press purposefully wrote a story to make the trump administration look bad as opposed to to be honest about what it is that's going on there's a program called manby started in two thousand two thousand three or two thousand eight under president george bush the purpose of the program was to bring in more skilled people who are noncitizens into the military because there was a a skills gap in terms of medical professionals and language gaps when especially when you're dealing with an enemy like terrorism and you want to fill those gaps maybe there were immigrants who could fill those gaps and by coming into the military under this program they would have a better opportunity a quicker opportunity to become citizens it would happen with with a fluid nece that's what happened and we were able to fill a lot of those positions then changes came through the course of the years under people like president obama who allow daca recipients to come in not many dhaka recipients were able to get into this program because if you had to be a medical professional but you came in the country illegally you weren't going to be a licensed medical professional that just wasn't going to happen but there were about nine hundred of them as a national review claims or reports i should say so what we actually have here within this program because yes there have been people who have been discharged those people haven't gone been able to pass their background checks those people have not been able to get through the more rigorous vetting that is now in place in the whole program has now been stopped not only was there more rigorous vetting put in place but there was no funding put in place for the rigorous vetting so therefore it created a larger backlogged and it created an inability to get through the entire process to know who's in the country properly and who could pass a background check to be a member of the military to be able to get things like clearances and etc we have here two things at play first bureaucracy right and bureaucracy is always a big hot mess and then we have the second thing at play changes that were made to the program that made the program untenable these are the two things that happened here neither of those things is the trump administration proactively attacking immigrants that was a lie from the ap they purposefully as i would see it booted the story they purposely manipulated the story in order to be able to sell that fabrication as another pylon and president trump so it was it fake news well there's a story about some of these people no longer being in the military being pushed out of the military with with a questionable type of discharge but it wasn't because of any antiimmigrant sentiment so yes if you want to categorize it as news go right ahead you wanna talk about the whole issue as an adult we can do that there's an issue with bureaucracy and it's a great right up for from national review there's an issue with how the program was manipulated in change in the in the obama years and there may be an issue with the program in and of itself but an anti immigrant stance that was fabricated and then that was utilized by enemies and detractors of president trump to then attack the president of the united states i told you we would come back to the.
