This is an interesting group of twenty-five Five Democrats. Twenty five Republicans in the House who have been working on ways to find common ground for this corona virus relief Josh Gotten. Heimer. WHO's the groups? Democratic Chair Co Chair told a news conference The proposal was intended to get two sides back at the table representative Tom Reid he's the CO chair on the Republican side. He said that the Republican. Leaders in the White House were positive about the plan. Well, their plan is one that is kind of in the middle instead of six hundred or three hundred. If you're for your unemployment bonus or whatever you call it they're talking about four fifty. And they're talking about the twelve hundred dollars there seems to be some agreement between the president and even the Democrats that twelve hundred dollar stimulus per person. And then for kids they're argued about should be five, hundred, thousand and so on. I have a question for you out there and you can call us at three, five, three, thirteen, ten, or nine, seven, zero, three, five, three, thirteen, ten, or eight, seven, seven, three, five, three, thirteen, the three, five, hundred, thirteen ten is the key to this. Here's my question. Do you need a stimulus payment right now? And if you got one what would you do with it? If they sent you twelve hundred dollars and five hundred if you have for each of your children if you have. And maybe you and your spouse if you're married would get two, thousand, four, hundred dollars. What would you do with that money? Do you need it? What would what would you do? Then, the other question has to do with those who are unemployed. What would you do? If you would get a three, hundred, four, hundred, four, fifty, five, hundred, six, hundred dollars in addition per week to whatever unemployment you're currently drawing. What would you do it? Do you want it? Do you need it? Here's kind of what I was thinking about right now in employment in the US is fourteen point, seven percent full employment is considered below five percent. So we're a long ways from that There's a natural attrition in in Employment People Moving from one job to another and so on, and usually it's under five percent and it's been as low as three lender under president trump and and so three something and so that that's awesome. That's really full employment if people are busy in there, actually looking for people to work. All. Right. Minimum wage in Colorado's eleven ten an hour the US. Minimum wage is seven quarter. So say you make twelve bucks an hour just just the the that would be probably one of the lowest paid people in Colorado I'm I'm just saying can't be Lord and eleven ten, but twelve is easy to figure you work forty hours a week you get four, hundred, eighty bucks a week if they send you six hundred dollars a week extra. You don't want to go back to work. You're making more money on unemployment if they send you four fifty. it's a little less than you would have made a few to worked. So four fifty might be a motivation here in Colorado at least with our wage scale that we have at say twelve bucks to to get you back to work when they first did this six hundred dollars and it went through quick. I've heard senators say,.

"Fueled by Great Western Petroleum. Pull this piece out of Fox. News by Marissa's Scholz This after spending weeks diving into corona virus issues over zoom video teleconferencing boy. That's become the new normal now housing it. We're all getting familiar with zoom. This bipartisan group of Fifty House members has indeed crafted a plan for what they feel is needed to reopen the economy's safely and help businesses both large and small recover from a crippling mandatory. Shut down so no surprise that Amazon is set to well. Let's just say benefit handsomely from profit margin perspective as a result of coveted nineteen. So here's the plan that outlined specific public health economic recovery and long-term stimulus plans. The group wants Congress and president trump to embrace as the nation tries to emerge from weeks-long quarantines growing mass layoffs representative Josh Got Heimer is a Democrat out of New Jersey. He's CO chair of the Problem Solvers Caucus. He says the bottom line is people. I think I think are eager for a checklist. Yes we want specificity. We don't want this ever changing rolling narrative of well today here at the fact says we know them and tomorrow. Well everything's up ended right got. Heimer went on to say they want to understand what we think. It takes to get everything moving again so today. The problem solvers caucus will publicly unveil its back to work checklists that is poised to be perhaps an influential framework in DC in future rounds of Corona virus relief packages plan got the green light from the crew of rather pragmatic lawmakers determined to deliver all of us. Some much needed relief representative Tom. Reid Republican out of New York. Another Co chair of the problem solvers caucus said what this checklist does is. It shows that if you're sincere and if you really really WANNA put partisan politics aside you can actually roll up your sleeves and you can find some good common ground. That makes a lot of good. Haman sense adding it also shows you can get the necessary votes at two eighteen and sixty to get it done this of course in the House and the Senate now as you're well aware we talked about this. White House has already released. Its plan for that. Three pronged gradual opening led by states. But of course it was panned by some governors and speaker. Nancy Pelosi giving president trump an F. When it comes to testing saying that he has failed in leadership due to his actions taken and not taken during the covert nineteen band pandemic but again panned as being too vague not stressing mass rapid testing and conned contact tracing. It gives me chills but at the top of the list for a bipartisan lawmakers. The top of the list of their checklist is indeed the importance of rapid mass covert nineteen testing at a scale that could be upwards of five times greater than what's currently happening the problem solvers caucus checklists calls for establishing a federal contact tracing database similar to how the federal government already tracks measles now the lawmakers say the supply chain for personal protective gear. Ppi also needs to ramp up to cover workers in all essential sectors from food service schools. Checklists calls for all K through twelve children and teachers to have access to protective mass. When they returned to school got Heimer said of having teachers and students wear masks in the short run. We need to do it to get our school's back open. That's part of the precautions that we're going to have to take if you're in area in New York or New Jersey. That's been tremendously hard head. We WanNa take every precaution now again as this problem solvers caucus has come together in a bipartisan manner. Again fifty members of the house in order to come up with this back to work plan. They've been operating under the principle that a vaccine likely won't be available for at least at least another year so lawmakers say they needed to look at establishing new normal in American Society of regularly wearing protective gear as regions and states. Slowly get back to work while acknowledging regional economic differences. The plan sets national benchmarks. That must be met to reopen the. Us again very hard. Hit with at least twenty two million layoffs and more than seven hundred fifty thousand covert Nineteen Infections. Lawmakers recommended reconfiguring. Business layouts for social distancing ramping up cleaning and sanitizing public spaces and workplaces and adopting data driving benchmarks that will trigger the Department of Homeland Security to implement travel restrictions to and from infected countries now in terms of economic recovery problem solvers caucus says the US needs to establish new supply chains for manufactured good goods including pharmaceuticals. Yeah we have to get We've got to wean ourselves off our dependence on China particularly when it comes to pharmaceuticals and medical supplies give financial incentives to bring overseas manufacturers Back to the United States Referencing our conversation. We had earlier with China expert. President up the Population Research Institute. Stephen Mosier read went on to say if we can get to a seventy five percent plus consensus. That's a pretty good indication that these are solid ideas. Substantively that can bring people together now. dealing with the corona virus response in their own districts problem solvers members continue to speak as a caucus through video meetings to drop the plan. Consult with senators speak with experts including former FDA commissioner Dr Scott Gottlieb in the last four weeks problem solvers caucus held seven full meetings. Five working groups for meetings with senators to complete plan read went on to say what this proposal is doing is really trying to lay out some groundwork. We need to do a better job of looking over the horizon around the corners. I'll tell you we've learned so much over the past four weeks now. A main public health priority. That the bipartisan lawmakers of emphasized as rapid testing for diagnosing Cova nineteen and also serological testing to who has developed antibodies. They'll require the FDA to continue to approve testing methods and for companies to ramp up production to hit that benchmark. Reading Got Heimer together. Set the goal at seven hundred and fifty thousand tests per day. They did this in earlier. Op-ed piece although today's plan doesn't name a specific figure this according to preliminary reports of what this plan's actually going to look like currently the US testing on average about one hundred and fifty thousand people a day. This according to data from the coverted attracting project which means much more work needs to be done for the United States to safely. Meet the goals to reopen. The economy overall point said God. Heimer is that we need to have testing. He is also a member of that new White House Congressional Task Force on reopening the economy. It's critical to be able to fully reopen. So what happens next after this proposal to reopen the economy? And well get us all back to work. Where does it actually go from here? Well now heads to congressional leadership and president trump to help guide the process. Some of the requirements could need executive agency action while others need congressional support. Their goal is set out a framework for governing and give the American people a roadmap for recovery. Read said. We're going through this crisis for the next two years. By the time you get to vaccine the economic recovery got Heimer said. There's all different pieces to this at the state and federal and local levels that were hoping this has an impact on. My hope is that this is actually used as a checklist for others and as a way for people to feel a little bit more comfortable that yeah we're actually making important progress in this country in that we are moving forward to getting back to work which is absolutely essential as long as it's done safely so it's interesting to see what this plan actually contains an where it's all going to go but some good news as the White House and Democrats are closing in on that new four hundred and fifty billion dollar corona virus.

The works begging the question. Wait a minute. I thought they wanted to help. The people of this nation no funding for hospitals and funding for states to the tune of two hundred and fifty million dollars was more important than provided that lifeline of economic support.

It looks like they are making some progress closing in on this four hundred and fifty billion dollar corona virus package for small businesses. That will replenish the three hundred. And Fifty Billion Dollar Corona Virus Emergency Fund and well. The good news is the voters could happen as earlier this week. Now president trump just yesterday talked about the four hundred and fifty billion dollar total package during his Sunday evening.

And again today explaining what happened and I would say this, I said, not, right. What you did in calling a meeting like this wasn't right? And so I said, so I'm gonna postpone it or call it off. But you can focus on one thing. You shouldn't go down two tracks same time, because they can't they're so the whole the whole democrat party is very messed up. They have never recovered from the great. Section of twenty-six election that I think you folks like very much. But one Republican lawmaker says it's time for the president and party leaders to set aside their differences, Representative Tom Reid of New York. I think I think where this is coming from it.

"This is a reversal from the administration's previous position to let the popular parts of the law stand, for instance, the law barring insurers from charging people more for pre existing conditions the threat to ObamaCare with a winning campaign issue for House Democrats, and it's been a source of frustration for Republicans who've tried and failed to repeal it many times to talk more about this. We have Representative Tom Reid of New York. He's a Republican co-chair of the house problem solvers caucus, welcome to all things considered. That's great to be with you. Thanks for having me on. So just so everyone's clear about what we're talking about. The administration is backing a lower court ruling that says the ObamaCare system should be wiped out because the tax plan that you all pass last year took away the penalty for not having health insurance. And if the supreme court rule. Rules that ObamaCare is out. We will have a plan that's far better that ObamaCare. So as this makes its way through the courts does the party have any kind of alternate to ObamaCare right now. Well, you know, I believe we do in the sense of our our solutions being based on bring market pressure to bear into the healthcare arena to drive these costs down, however, one with the votes, right? Because that's been the problem definitely can repeal it. You just can't seem to come up with an alternative. And that's exactly the issue. And that's one of the reasons I I disagree with the position of repealing the entire law through the judicial system through the court system. I'm a Republican who believes that what we should do is proactively address the problems of healthcare and lead the provisions that we agree with the pre existing condition protection, for example, allow that to remain as the laws land and move forward. And I think that's going to be the case, regardless of what happens in the court system, you've called this a poor political move. I I did, you know, not only substantively does it put millions of Americans in harm's way. If the court agrees with the Justice department that the whole law needs to be ruled unconstitutional. I think politically, you know to not have a concrete proposal. No concrete plan on the Republican side that we could roll out with the votes with Republican support to get to the president's desk than signed into law is risky. What's a lot of people are rightfully so and then anxious position and politically that causes us to be in a weaker position in my political opinion. Now, that's just my opinion. But you know, that's why I disagree with this both on political and subsidy basis you said anxious position. Do you feel that Republicans won't be known as the party of healthcare? Right. That the somehow be the party against healthcare. I think we're going to be a party that's going to offer solutions. And I just hope that what we can do is. We have that debate is bring Democrats to the table that wanna be practical that want to actually solve this problem of healthcare costs ever creasing lover hate, the Affordable Care Act is not doing what they promise it would do and that's spring healthcare costs down, and what we should be doing this Republicans and Democrats finding ways to lower drug prices for folks seniors in particular, lower access costs to healthcare overall and show these benefits in patients pocket as opposed to negotiate between carriers in administrators so far the problem. Solvers caucus has not solved any problems, right? I think there's been one major piece of legislation. You guys have sponsored related to opioid abuse. Which was fairly popular. I mean, what's your response to the criticism that this group it gives the appearance of compromise? But doesn't have action especially on an issue like healthcare. Well, fundamentally I fundamentally in. Vigorously disagree with your assessment. We haven't solved many problems. That's just false. What we have done is. We got prison reform criminal Justice reform. We were the voice in the house that got that through the house Senate into the president's desk signed into law. We have changed the house rules as the problem solvers caucus members so uniting together to empower members to bring legislation to the floor changing the rules of the house of representatives is a generational institutional reform that the magnitude of that impact cannot be discounted. So we are we are moving forward with solutions many issues where I wanted to tell you, you know, we're not looking to solve the issues with our proposals. It's our way or the highway we take input. We try to influence the agenda in a positive way. And if a piece of it gets to the finish line war good with that too. It's not all about our ideas is about solving problems with people back home. That's Tom Reid of New York. Republican congressman thank you for speaking with us. All right. Thanks for having me on. There is still a lot of head scratching over what happened. And in the case of jussie smollet. He's the actor who was indicted on sixteen felony counts. He was charged with filing a false police report saying he had been the victim of a racist and homophobic attack. And then suddenly yesterday prosecutors in Cook County, Illinois dropped all the charges in a statement. They said it was in return for small let's agreement to do community service and forfeit his ten thousand dollar bond for more on that decision. We are joined now by Cook County state's attorney Kim, FOX, welcome. Thank you for having me. So this statement from your office yesterday said, quote, we did not exonerate Mr. small, but you dropped all the charges against him. So do you or don't you believe that he committed the crimes he was charged with? So in order for us to offer Mr. small at the opportunity to have conditions in exchange. Dropping targes we have to believe that he committed that class is my ethical obligation to now. Not as someone to do something in condition if I don't believe that they didn't commit a crime. So yes, we believe that the case was. A sufficient case for us to prosecute. Should we have decided to do? So. Okay. So this move to drop all the charges was not connected to any new evidence. That changed your understanding of the facts in the case is that what you're saying. Yes. When I'm speaking. I'm speaking of the office because as you know, and I don't know if we'll get to it. I was accused right. That's from the case. But no, I had nothing to do with the strength of the case. I think what most people don't understand is. We have an ethical obligation to only proceeding cases in courts, where we believe that we have the evidence to meet our burden in this case, it was part of an alternative prosecution program. If you will we cannot offer diversion remedy to someone that we believe is not guilty. Then your office. You've used the phrase alternative prosecution, but a lot of people take issue with the use of that phrase because in most alternative prosecutions, the defendant agrees to community service or drug treatment, the defendant accepts responsibility for what he or she has done, and then the charges get dropped. That is not what happened here with Jesse small. Let heated sixteen hours of community service earlier this week. He forfeited his ten thousand dollar bond, and then he had his charges dropped how is this alternative prosecution? Well, I wanna be clear there's an umbrella of things that fall under alternative prosecution the statute does allow for people to participate in restitution. So the ten thousand dollars which is the maximum allowed under the statute, it does allow them to do community service without having to acknowledge guilt for some of the admission of guilt. And having that on the record incentivizes them to do those other things that you talked about whether it was community service or restitution the statute allows to choose how we want to proceed now yesterday. Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel had some pretty harsh words about this decision. He called it a whitewash of Justice and suggested that it sent the message that there are two sets of rules when for celebrities and the wealthy and one for everyone else does it concern you that people might have that impression of what happened here. It does concern me because what happened yesterday was the rules that we have for everyone else. The fifty seven hundred people who participated on alternative prosecutions was the same things that we made available to Mr. small it. I mean, I think the question that you smile at. We'll have to answer is he paid the ten thousand dollars which we consider to be restitution. He did the community service but will linger with him whether he was had done. This or been found not guilty by a judge or guilty answering for what he had done, and that will last longer than this court case, or what a potential court case he will have to live with those questions in his credibility his days moving forward. All right. That's kim. Fox. She's the Cook County Illinois state's attorney. Thank you very much. Thank you. India announced today that it has successfully tested a satellite killing weapon. NPR's Jeff Brumfield has more on the test. And what it could mean for the region. Indian prime minister Narendra Modi announced the test in a national address pot up the arch up on our nam unreach-. He says that India now stands tall as a space power VIP. Wondering is a political? Scientists did not he says the test apparently used an Indian made missile to strike an Indian made satellite. They launch a missile from their missile test site and intercepted the satellite, which was in orbit at three hundred kilometers in space three hundred kilometers or one hundred eighty six miles is actually a relatively low orbit. No pun intended is relatively low hanging fruit in terms of a kill. But you know, it is it's only the fourth country that's demonstrated as capabilities the other three are China, Russia and the United States, Brian Weeden. With the secure world foundation. He says there's an anti-satellite arms race happening right now. And there are no arms control treaties to stop it organizations. Like the UN regularly talk about limiting weapons in space. But there really hasn't been any serious discussion about dealing with ground based anti satellite. Weapons. Weeden says the main danger is debris that can be created by hitting a satellite a two thousand seven tests by China's speed thousands of fragments into orbit many are still up there. And so the concern would be that if there's a future conflict, which weaned US, China US, Russia, India and China or India Pakistan that these weapons might be used and lower Thorpe, it might become filled with deadly shrapnel that could knock out other non-military satellites VIP in Narang says he sees another purpose behind India's test today to strike the satellite the Indian military. Used to kind of missile designed to intercept other missiles hitting a satellite is similar to striking and incoming warheads. So the tests may actually be about missile defense.

"representative tom reid" Discussed on KQED Radio

"NPR news. This is all things considered. I'm Elsa Chand. I'm Audie Cornish. President Trump says he's going to make the GOP the party of healthcare. But he's told his Justice department to support illegal effort to cancel the Affordable Care Act known as ObamaCare. This is a reversal from the administration's previous position to let the popular parts of the law stand, for instance, the law barring insurers from charging people more for pre existing conditions. The threat to ObamaCare was a winning campaign issue for House Democrats, and it's been a source of frustration for Republicans who've tried and failed to repeal it many times to talk more about this. We have Representative Tom Reid of New York. He's a Republican co chair of the house problem solvers caucus. Welcome to all things considered. That's great to be with you. Thanks for having me on. So just so everyone's clear about what we're talking about. The administration is backing lower court ruling that says the ObamaCare system should be wiped out because the tax plan that you all pass last year away the penalty for not having health insurance. And if the supreme court rules that ObamaCare is out we will have a plan that's far better that ObamaCare. So as this makes its way through the courts does the party have any kind of alternative to ObamaCare right now. Well, you know, I believe we do in the sense of our our solutions being based on bring a market pressure to bear into the healthcare arena drive these costs down. However, I mean one with the votes, right? Is that's been the probably definitely can repeal it. You just can't seem to come up with an alternative. And then that's exactly the issue. And that's one of the reasons I disagree with the position of repealing the entire law through the judicial system through the court system. I'm a Republican who believes that what we should do proactively address the problems of healthcare and lead the provisions that we agree with the pre existing condition protection, for example, allow that to remain as the laws land and move forward. And I think that's going to be the case, regardless of what happens in the court system. You've called this a poor political move. I I did not only substantively does it put millions of Americans in harm's way. If the court agrees with the Justice department that the whole law needs to be ruled unconstitutional. I think politically to not have a concrete proposal of concrete plan on the Republican side that we can roll out with the votes with democrat Republican support to get to the president's desk and signed into law is risky puts a lot of people are rightfully so and then anxious position and politically that causes us to be in a weaker position in my political opinion. Now, that's just my opinion. But you know, that's why I disagree with us both on political and substantive basis. You said anxious position. Do you feel that Republicans won't be known as the party of healthcare? Right. That the somehow be the party against healthcare. I think we're going to be a party that's going to offer solutions. And I just hope that what we can do is. We have that debate is bring Democrats to the table that want to be practical. Now want to actually solve this problem of healthcare costs ever creasing lover hate the Affordable Care Act. It does not doing what they promised. It would do and that's spring healthcare costs down, and what we should be doing is Republicans and Democrats finding ways to lower drug prices for folks seniors in particular, lower access cost to healthcare overall and show these benefits in patients pocket as opposed to negotiated between carriers in administrators so far the problem. Solvers caucus has not solved any problems, right? I think there's been one major piece of legislation. You guys have sponsored related to opioid abuse. Which was fairly popular. I mean, what's your response to the criticism that this group gives the appearance of compromise? But doesn't have action especially on an issue like health care. Fundamentally, I fundamentally vigorously disagree with your assessment, we haven't solved any problems. That's just false. What we have done is. We got prison reform criminal Justice reform. We were the voice in the house. They got through the house Senate into the president signed into law. We have changed the house rules is the problem solvers caucus members so uniting together to empower members to bring legislation to the floor changing the rules of the house of representatives is generational institutional reform that the magnitude of that impact cannot be discounted. So we are we are moving forward with solutions many issues where I wanted to tell you, you know, we're not looking to solve the issues with our proposals. It's our way or the highway we take input we tried to influence the agenda in a positive way. And if a piece of it gets to the finish line war good with that too. It's not all about our ideas is about solving problems with people back home. That's Tom Reid of New York. Republican congressman thank you for speaking with us. All right. Thanks for having me on. There is still a lot of head scratching over what happened in the case of jussie smollet. He's the actor who was indicted on sixteen felony counts. He was charged with filing a false police report saying he had been the victim of a racist and homophobic attack. And then you suddenly yesterday prosecutors in Cook County, Illinois dropped all the charges in a statement. They said it was in return for small let's agreement to do community service and forfeit his ten thousand dollar bond for more on that decision. We are joined now by Cook County state's attorney Kim, FOX, welcome. Thank you for having me. So this statement from your office yesterday said, quote, we did not exonerate Mr. small, but you dropped all the charges against him. So do you or don't you believe that he committed the crimes he was charged with? So in order for us to offer Mr. small at the opportunity to have conditions in exchange dropped the charges. We have to believe that he committed that. Is it is my ethical obligation to not as someone to do something in condition if I don't believe that they didn't commit a crime. So yes, we believe that the case was a sufficient case for us to prosecute. Should we have decided to do? Okay. So this move to drop all the charges was not connected to any new evidence. That changed your understanding of the facts in the case is that what you're saying. Yes. Speaking speaking of the office because as you know, and I don't know if we'll get to it. I was accused right. From the case. But no, I had nothing to do with the strength of the case. I think what most people don't understand is. We have an ethical obligation to only proceed in cases in courts, where we believe that we have the evidence to meet our burden in this case, it was part of an alternative prosecution program. If you will we cannot offer a diversion remedy to someone that we believe is not guilty. And then your office you've used the phrase alternative prosecution, but a lot of people take issue with the use of that phrase because in most alternative prosecutions, the defendant agrees to community service or drug treatment, the defendant accepts responsibility for what he or she has done, and then the charges get dropped. That is not what happened here with Jesse small let he had sixteen hours of community service earlier this week. He forfeited his ten thousand dollar bond, and then he had his charges dropped how is this alternative prosecution? Well, I wanna be clear there's an umbrella of things they fall under alternative prosecution. The statue doesn't allow for people to participate in restitution. So the ten thousand dollars which is the maximum allowed under the statute, it doesn't allow them to do community service without having to acknowledge guilt for some the admission of guilt. And having that on the record incentivizes them to do those other things that you talked about whether it was community service or restitution the statute allows us to choose how we want to proceed now yesterday. Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel had some pretty harsh words about this decision. He called it a whitewash of Justice and suggested that it sent the message that there are two sets of rules went for celebrities and the wealthy and one for everyone else. Does it concern you that people might have that impression of what happened here? It does concern me because what happened yesterday was the rules that we have for everyone else. The fifty seven hundred people who've participated on alternative prosecutions was the same things that we made available to Mr. small it. I mean, I think the question they just you smile at. We'll have to answer is he paid the ten thousand dollars which we consider to be restitution. He did the community service but will linger with him. Whether he was had. I'd done this or been found not guilty by a judge or guilty answering for what he had done, and that will last longer than this court case or whatever potential court case he will have to live with those questions in his credibility. His days moving forward. All right. That's kim. Fox. She's the Cook County Illinois state's attorney. Thank you very much. Thank you. India announced today that it has successfully tested a satellite killing weapon. NPR's Jeff Brumfield has more on the test. And what it could mean for the region. Indian prime minister Narendra Modi announced the tested, a national address pot up the arch up on our nam unreach-. He says that India now stands tall as a space. Power. Vip hindering is a political. Scientists did not he says the test apparently used an Indian made missile to strike an Indian made satellite. They launch a missile from their missile test site and intercepted the satellite, which was in orbit at three hundred kilometers in space three hundred kilometers or one hundred eighty six miles is actually a relatively low orbit. No pun intended is relatively low hanging fruit in terms of a kill. But you know, it is it's only the fourth country. That's demonstrated set capabilities. The other three are China Russia and the United States Brian Weeden. With the secure world foundation. He says there's an anti-satellite arms race happening right now. And there are no arms control treaties to stop it organizations. Like the UN regularly talk about limiting weapons in space. But there really hasn't been any serious discussion about dealing with ground based anti satellite weapons. We didn't says the main danger is debris that can be created by hitting a satellite a two thousand seven tests by China's speed thousands of fragments into orbit many are still up there. So the concern would be that if there's a future conflict, which weaned US, China US and Russia India and China India and Pakistan that these weapons might be used and lower Thorpe, it might become filled with deadly shrapnel that could knock out other non-military satellites VIP in Narang says he sees another purpose behind India's test today to strike the satellite the Indian military. Used to find a missile designed to intercept other missiles hitting a satellite is similar to striking and incoming warheads. So the tests may actually be about missile defense. If that's the case, then it's also designed to send a message they'll say, it's directed towards any other country. But this is clearly I think relevant to Pakistan India's nuclear-armed rival in the region. Finally, today's test may have a domestic purpose. India will begin national elections in a few weeks time Narang says Modise speech about India is a space power will burnish his reputation as strong on defense. Jeff from phil- NPR news.

"It's all things considered from NPR news. I'm Audie Cornish. Elsa chang. There is still a lot of head scratching over what happened in the case of Jesse small let he's the actor who is indicted on sixteen felony counts related to allegedly filing a false police report. He said he had been the victim of a racist and homophobic attack. And then yesterday prosecutors in Cook County, Illinois dropped all charges in what they called an alternative prosecution. They noted that small let had done community service and forfeited his ten thousand dollar bond for some reaction. We called former Cook County prosecutor Eric Sussman. I asked him whether he has ever seen anything like this, quite frankly, I haven't seen a reversal bike this by either my former colleagues on the state side or the federal side not without there being some very significant change in the evidence, which according to the state's attorney's office. There hasn't been I wanna talk about this phrase. We keep. Hearing alternative prosecutions what sort of the rationale behind this program. So people can move on with their lives. They don't have charges on their record. So they can get jobs. Exactly, the the rationale behind the program is look people make mistakes reasons in their pass such as if you have a drug addiction, or you're a veteran who has suffered with PTSD those types of issues the way, those work is okay, we will after a certain period of time agreed to drop the charges in exchange. You will do community service. You will go to a drug treatment program. You will do these types of things assuming you do what you're supposed to do. Then we will drop the charges with the prosecution is calling this in terms of an alternative prosecution is not something that was ever envisioned by the legislators when they designed these types of programs or by the courts, it seems like the prosecutors are. Trying to put a round peg in a square hole here by calling this alternative prosecution rather than calling it what it is. Which is we're not comfortable going forward in airing this case in the public now small let has been speaking out. He is denying that he had done anything wrong. He in fact, he said I'm quoting here. I have been truthful and consistent on every single level since day one and his lawyers chiming in and saying look, this is a guy who's a victim. Who was then vilified do you usually see people who receive alternative prosecutions show some contrition some remorse as a prosecutor. You would look for acceptance of responsibility by the prosecutor in a judge would expect that that's why this is not an alternative prosecution. Prosecutors do not just drop charges and allow someone to go out there and say I did nothing wrong. And I was in essence wrongfully charged and on the flip side. I think it's important. To note, the state's attorney's office is out there saying, oh, no. He did do something wrong. We do have evidence. And quite frankly, they need to stop saying that it's improper for them to be saying that at this point about someone that they have dropped the charges against. So it seems like contradictory. Things are happening. Yes. When I was in the Cook County state's attorney's office there were situations where we dropped prosecutions, despite the fact that we believed that someone was guilty. We did those generally under a circumstance where a witness had recanted or evidence that once was available to us is no longer available to us, and what we would say in those circumstances is we do not have sufficient evidence to be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that this person committed the crime that again is not what the prosecutors are seeing here what they're saying. Here is we have the evidence. Jesse smollet is guilty. But for reasons that we do not want to share with the public. We're dropping the case. Eric sussman. Former first assistant state's attorney for Cook County, Illinois, he's now a partner at the law firm Reed Smith, thank you so much for joining us today. Thanks salsa. We have reached out to the Cook County state's attorney's office and are waiting to hear back. President Trump says he's going to make the GOP the party of healthcare. But he's told his Justice department to support illegal effort to cancel the Affordable Care Act known as a Bama care. This is a reversal from the administration's previous position to let the popular parts of the law stand, for instance, the law barring insurers from charging people more for pre existing conditions.

"representative tom reid" Discussed on Thunder Radio

"Up all types of 'isms isn't going to work at twenty twenty. Children. Two. James? ES one of the things that's amazing in the era that we live in is how powerful the media is also how misleading the media could be. President Trump for the last three years since he's come down the escalator. Trump towers has made it clear that one of the things he was going to be battling for was border security. He talked about the illegals coming into the country. He talked about other disruption. These illegals are calling causing. He talked about the angel. Parents Americans innocent Americans who are being killed by illegals of from murder from robbery from drunk driving from identity theft. The president talked about how he's going to build a big beautiful wall and make Mexico pay for it. And all the time the media accused him of being racist said that he was against immigrants that he was against immigration, the conveniently left the legal out of it. The mainstream media accused this president of being racist. And also be Zena phobic. Yet, he stayed. The course about seeing what what what it was that he wanted and guess what? Because of that the president beat Hillary Clinton two thousand sixteen. Now, he began a congress congress. I think congress was shocked. I didn't the house was shot. I I think that a speaker of the house Paul Ryan was shot that think that that Mitch McConnell was shocked and then immediately the deep state went in on President Trump. That's when the whole collusion thing started was this time two years ago. Almost exactly that the president put out that tweet that Obama is why you're tapping me. And that changed everything that turned it upside down because now the deep state was exposed why because the president can he no he has access to classified information. And then the mantra was that President Trump better not fire better. Not fires special special counsel that had been put in place because former FBI director James Comey was illegally leaking information and forced this investigation. This was all part of the deep states plan from falsifies. Ing Pfizer reports. I mean, just just going between fight the fires the judges at lying. To leaking information totally disrupting the Trump administration. All the while the president's the on point with the things that he promised the American people. Once the Republicans found out understood that this president was not going to be. Going go out easy. It's not gonna be impeached. Disarming decided to have heartedly begin to to play along. That's what led to the infamous thumbs down at two o'clock in the morning from Senator John McCain to defeat the repealing of Obama Care. By the time tax reform came around. They were on point guided through, and it was huge and thank God because the government because the because the economy has been popping since then. We've got the lowest unemployment rate in in decades. You got the lowest black unemployment rate Hispanic unemployment rate in history. Americans are not only working, but there's also mobile they're able to move on up. But the people who are not the people who are not moving on up are the ones who don't want to the ones are holding onto their cups of sorrow. But even in that they're waking up. Illegal immigration, which demographic of the country does illegal immigration hurt the most. Well. Economists say Americans of African descent. While it was useful to stir up black rage and new to fund the black lives matter movement in in two thousand nineteen the black lives matter movement has been very much diminished. Why because Democrats have moved on the only stick around to stir up racial angst. Would it comes to the doctor situation? A President Obama started DACA with his pen and his phone. President Trump wanted the situation we be the proper way through congress. He got blocked by the courts, and guess what? Congress doesn't want to solve the problem. He tried to wheel and deal on border security with Dhaka even against the will of many Republicans in office and throughout the country. But in that brilliant maneuver, the president showed that the Democrats are not interested in the DACA. They're not interested in a those kids who are here because their parents brought them here illegally. They don't care. The president talks about highlights the drug trafficking on the border. The sex trafficking on the border. The migrants the illegals pouring over the border. And the Democrats ignore it. Republicans go down to the border they tour the border. They invite other elected officials come down to the board. Democrats won't go. Angel families family who have who have lost members to violent crime by illegals. The Democrats don't wanna talk to them. The government shutdown the president he's one of these continuing resolutions lapse so that he could put pressure on the Democrats. They don't care. They don't care. They're not going to move. They're not going to budge and any democrat that votes for inter Republican will be punished. I'm not kidding you. This is Nancy Pelosi today. So the president calls the national emergency. Because there is an emergency on the border. But the. Republic are the Democrats. They respond. Well, there is no emergency on the border. And now look at what they're looking at what they're upset about plaintiff number one in Texas to try to stop the border wall construction or a bunch of butterflies and the people who love them. It's an incredible metaphor about how. A little slice of natural heaven is standing in between this proposed plan. But it's just not just butterflies. Elon Musk's SpaceX launch pads Boca Chica beach, where he wants to send rockets to Mars that could be impacted by this. So congress is deciding whether that emergency order to build this wall will hold so it's rockets and butterflies and here's the trip to see those flittering little guys. You're kidding me. Right. Butterflies? So you're telling me, the Democrats. Have more concern over butterfly. Did he actually say butterfly sanctuary? We got sanctuary cities four illegals. We've got dead bodies throughout our desert in Arizona. We have sex trafficking drug trafficking. We have ranchers who are being harassed on their own land. We have border patrol agents who are being shot while on patrol with the Democrats. Worried about butterfly sanctuaries and SpaceX. I'm telling you, you can't make this up. And I just don't think I mean, the Democrats are being exposed. Here. We have Representative Tom read, a Republican, New York, and this frustrates me. On the other side. Here's how Republicans are responding to President Trump and border security when there's a crisis in the law is the law. You have to follow the law as it exists in the crisis. I agreed with the crisis determination by the president. What I do want is congress to be co equal in a national emergency declaration. That's what this amendment that. I'm proposing and many of my colleagues in a bipartisan way are proposing. We make sure congress plays a role in this as we got thirty one national emergencies on the books from the Carter administration's and beyond that are still there because the president has just acted president Carter declared a national emergency, and it's still in effect today. Congress has advocated is role. Congress needs to step up take thirty back. I agree with you Representative Tom Reid. I agree with you that congress needs to step up and take back thority. But. Here's where you go wrong. You said that it needs to be co equal actually you're wrong. Congress is supposed to be more powerful than the executive branch, the founding fathers set up both houses of congress to be the most powerful of the three branches of government. The executive branch is supposed to be the second most powerful. And the third is supposed to be the courts. And you're right in the nineteen seventies. The congress did see their power and authority to the president. And they ought to take it back. But here's where I get really frustrated with you, the president has given you opportunities President Trump has given you at least two opportunities to do your job, and you have it. And when it comes to your one of the most important jobs. You have is called the budget. Which we haven't had. And decades. It's frustrating. This is frustrating. No some days. I just think that I know too much. And other days. I realized I know very little at all. On this issue right here. It is tiring. It's exhausting. See Democrats and Republicans who we elected into office not know what their job is. And talk to us as if they is is if they do it's just frustrating. And it's going to get worse. Why? Because we have a new individual that jumped into the today, and he is utterly ridiculous. Actually, we're going to do that one. We're gonna do that by liberal later. There's a couple of issues here that I wanna talk about that our local Tempe has a tough new cell phone law going into effect. Now, I'm gonna tell you what you need to know.

"Mainstream media is stirring up all types of 'isms. Is it going to work at twenty twenty? Two. James? One of the things that's amazing in the era that we live in is how powerful the media is also how misleading the media could be. President Trump for the last three years since he's come down the escalator. Trump towers has made it clear that one of the things he was going to be battling for was border security. He talked about the illegals coming into the country. He talked about other disruption. These illegals are calling causing. He talked about the angel. Parents America's innocent America's were being killed by illegals of from murder from robbery from drunk driving from identity theft. The president talked about how going to build a big beautiful wall and make Mexico pay for it. And all the time the media accused him of being racist said that he was against immigrants that he was against immigration, the conveniently left the legal out of it. The mainstream media accused this president of being racist. And also the xenophobic. Yet, he stayed. The course about seeing what what what it was that he wanted and guess what? Because of that the president beat Hillary Clinton two thousand sixteen. Now, he began to congress congress. I think congress was shocked. I think the house was shot. I think that a speaker of the house Paul Ryan was shot that think that that Mitch McConnell was shocked and then immediately the deep state went in on President Trump. That's when the whole collusion thing started this time two years ago. Almost exactly that the president put out that tweet that Obama is why you're tapping me. And that changed everything that turned it upside down because now the deep state was exposed why because the president can he no he has access to classified information. And then the mantra was that President Trump better not fire better enough fires the special special counsel that had been put in place because former FBI director James Comey was illegally leaking information and forced this investigation. This was all part of the deep states plan from falsifies. Ing Pfizer reports. Just just going between five the FIS the judges and lying. To leaking information totally disrupting the Trump administration. All the while the president's the on point with the things that he promised the American people. Wants the Republicans found out or understood that this president was not going to be going. Go out easy. It's not gonna be impeached disarming decided to have heartedly begin to to play along. That's what led to the infamous thumbs down at two o'clock in the morning from Senator John McCain to defeat the repealing of ObamaCare. By the time tax reform came around. They were on point the guided through, and it was huge and thank God because the government because the because the economy has been popping since then. We've got the lowest unemployment rate in in decades. Got the lowest black unemployment rate Hispanic unemployment rate in history. Americans are not only working, but there's also mobile they're able to move on up. But the people who are not the people who are not moving on up are the ones who don't want to the ones are holding onto their cups of sorrow. But even in that they're waking up.

Good morning. Donald J Trump is John Joe citizen who had the all data to break into the close fraternity.

Eurocratic clown inside the beltway in their bloated out of control budget. If you will and like, the gentleman just said Patty other on the back for generations after generations for doing nothing.

"Will add to that. Do you believe that? That is a good down payment. Menora the Russians like putting lipstick on a pig, man. This is a bad deal. This is a bad deal. You heard John Gary Mendy demographic, California Representative Tom Reid, rebel, New York. Tom mcclinton from California and Kay Granger. All Republicans talking about the deal that the negotiators have struck question. In for me Bruce Jenner who the geniuses were on the GOP side that negotiated this Bill will you name names? I'm finding the full list. I'm doing a Google search for that. And as soon as I find the fullest posted on the Bruce Elliott show page on Facebook. So that you guys have it available to all right for one zero WCBS six eighty is our telephone number toll free long distance has one eight hundred six eighty Levinson Baltimore. Good morning. Love. Are you there? Leave apparently. So that happens we want stand next who can stay. He's left the building of a four one zero WCBS eighty toll free long distance. It's one eight hundred six eighty. El Chapo, by the way. He's been found. Guilty. All counts now. Fourteen billion dollars. Seized him him fourteen billion dollars. Okay. It's time for. Seizing that money doing with Ted Cruz has adjusted for quite some time sees that money. And use it to build the wall. Pretty straightforward. I still I'm just blown away by what the Democrats did. Look, there's no way about it. The Republicans got shellacked snookered. This is a bad deal. Whether or not the president signs it. I have no idea. I don't think he should. Lousy deal. I think that we should be up for another furlough that would last as long as necessary until the Democrats say we'll all right, then here's three billion. Now, let's get on with it. Or until they pass a Bill that says, we're taking the fourteen billion from El Chapo, and we're going to go on from there. Rick has and Millersville first up this half hour. Good morning. Rick. Good morning. I just wanted to say that I think the Democrats and the Republicans for the most part a lot of them don't realize that the Democrats are on the roads as we all remember Nancy Pelosi said she would he make for the wall. That's it for now. They're saying they'll give one point whatever doing which is a pittance, they're on the wall. Right now. So I certainly believe as an alternative that Trump can say this is what I want this. What this is what we need. And I think possibly the democrat will give them more. They'll give him the whole thing. I think they'll give them a whole lot more because they are backpedaling if I may use that terminology. Yeah. Rick the problem. I have with it as they once offered one point seven billion. So now, they're back down to one point three five or the Republicans said boy, that's a great compromise. What the hell's? If they said. Seven hundred million and they came up to one point three five billion. You can see. Well, they have almost double what they had. But we're going backwards here. I I mean, I'm finding the name of that will go. She is once I have it. I'll post the list because they did not the GOP negotiators did not do their job. Are. They simply did not. As in how the Democrats unified Republicans are not unified that to me. That's a bigger problem. What we have with the Democrats. That's my final thought on third. Thanks for your call. Appreciate it for one zero WCBS six eighty toll free long distance. It's one eight hundred six eighty HOGAN Gidley is the White House deputy press secretary he was on America's newsroom last night. And you said the Democrats to focus on securing America's borders instead of making the issue a political one, and they should not be endorsing policies. They'll let criminals go free and bluffing, folks. This is what they've been doing when they get added in here. You only have so many beds to put illegal aliens on criminal aliens, so many bands and no more. This is actually an encouragement. For more illegals to come across the border. Because once the first six months of the year you fill filled up award at forty seven thousand for the seven for the second six months of the year. What are you gonna do with all those people if you have no beds to keep them? Gee, I guess you just release them into the American population. This is an inducement for illegal immigration, and the GOP negotiator said. Yeah. Okay. To that. Here's HOGAN Gidley when an entire political party decides. Hey, here's a good idea. Anyone who's convicted of a crime? If if there are too many beds, we just let them out into American communities, and here's another idea we're going to prevent ice from protecting the American people by arresting known creek, convicted criminals. I mean, the sanity of that proposal. I think quite frankly is facing extreme backlash. It isn't saying whether or not there. If there's any backlash. I don't know. I don't know if they simply White House spin because most people will not get down into the weeds and actually take a look at it and saying, wait a minute. This is nuts. Unless you're listening to this show right now, you may think well, all right? They give them money. That's it end of the deal. No, even money, and they limited the number of beds available which means basically the size of the prison. The size of the holding area. Whatever it is. In which you can keep potentially criminal illegal aliens. Well, once you've exceeded that number then what? But that's the deal the Democrats cut and the GOP negotiator said. Yeah. It sounds great to me. The president is pretty skeptical about this have to study. I'm not happy about it. It's not doing the trick. But adding things to it. I can tell you that am I happy at first glance. I just got to say it the answer is no, I'm not I'm not happy. But am I happy with where we're going? I'm thrilled. And that's the president yesterday in the Oval Office. New says he doesn't think there's gonna be another shutdown even though multiple government agencies are no set to run out of money on Friday. He's also hit. He's trying to rearrange money with the federal government in order to fund a border wall with Mexico. Now, it's not quite clear where the money's gonna come from. The does have the executive power to do this to declare an emergency. The Democrats are now saying may declare the emergency. But he's still has to have us. Sign off on it. And that's going to be an interesting fight. I think actually they should go ahead and declare the emergency and then immediately filed suit anywhere, but the ninety ninth. Because the Democrats filed suit they're gonna file suit in the ninety ninth. And that means that we know odds are how that's gonna turn out. It is an incredibly left of center judicial area. Dick is next up for ten AM six eighty diverse show. Good morning. Well, good morning. I call just because like you. I'm sure you're tired of the democrat names for the for the wall. That's necessary. As I am so far though what I've listened to is the Democrats call the wall immoral fourteenth century mediaeval unnecessary, and it doesn't work. And if it doesn't work it would probably be the first one in the world that doesn't work because the one between Israel and Palestine works. Great. The ones that are up between countries in Europe were the ones that protect the politicians around our homes work. So, you know, I'm just tired of hearing it at I feel great discouragement at what we let we shouldn't be using the term negotiated it what we caved into. Yes. Exactly. I mean from from where I'm sitting Shirley looks to me like the Democrats won this one big that for some reason, although the GOP has the majority in the Senate, and thus the ability to stop any of this nonsense, if it were to so choose the Democrats have the majority of the house said, well, this is one point three five billion one point three seven is we win and the Republicans said, wow, that sounds like a great compromise. Thanks, guys. We just got a bad deal and. The president in sexing. We'll just draw more disdains from the Democrats who put up the candidates are putting up now as though they would be a whole lot better while it'd be a whole lot better in establishing a socialist state. This is really interesting to watch, but this disappointing. Well, I'll tell you the you begin to think if the president signs this the Democrats are going to use this as a weapon against him in the twenty twenty run you'll have democrat candidates are running saying we provided money through the constitutional process. And this man is such a meglomaniac that he ignored congress and appropriate of money that was needed. Elsewhere. We have to stop this runaway government. This is the kind of just expected in will happen. That's absolutely, right. There is one. And that is the president signs disdains this deal and finds a continuing resolution which takes us to the end of September. Then they go in next year's budget. There's I think twenty two billion dollars worth of democrat goodies that expire next December. And he may well hold those goodies hostage for for what he wants whatever it is. Well, the problem is that if you if you sign a CR continuing resolution through September that takes this issue off the front burner completely. And there is a fair bit of public sentiment. Right now. Majority of the American people actually think that a a wall a physical barrier where appropriate on the southern border is a good thing. And that's not just fifty five miles of board of border wall in Texas. You also have other states involved, California, New Mexico. Arizona you have illegals crossing and all of those areas on a regular basis. And we're not gonna do anything to slow down the flow there, then illegals will do exactly what the last a bunch of the Honduran hord did. And that is they'll just walk west. They'll cross at at San Diego or the cross where the desert in Arizona or New Mexico and what have not enough border patrol agents to chase them all down dick Ralph. We can't handle the detainees because they want wanting custody beds bed space available for convicted criminals that I think we ought to have the ability to release them into the United States in California. I think that we should just arrange for them to have a bunk in the front yard of every democrat politicians in favor of this nonsense. I like them dig thanks for your call four one zero WCBS six eighty toll.
