"It's morning edition from NPR news I'm Sarah mccammond And I'm Steve and good morning It's said that many people rarely talk by phone anymore People text or email or DM or whatever but that apparently does not apply to the presidents of the United States and Russia President Biden speaks by phone with Vladimir Putin today their second talk this month And parents Charles maines is covering the story and I want to pause to know Charles a familiar voice on our area has been for a while but he is now formally NPR's Moscow correspondent so Charles welcome aboard officially Thanks Steve appreciate it It's an honor and a privilege It's good to have your insights and what do you know about this call Well you know The White House announced the call only yesterday saint Putin had requested to speak with Biden the Kremlin spokesman here just confirmed that Putin thought the conversation was necessary and important to have They also confirmed the call take place quite late It's at three 30 in the afternoon in Washington but that's 1130 p.m. here The White House said they expected the two leaders would discuss a range of issues that includes upcoming diplomatic engagements I think that's another way of saying they want to talk about efforts to diffuse the situation around Ukraine and this buildup of Russian forces there that has the U.S. fearing of an invasion and warning Russia of massive sanctions should it take military action Now if you're looking for hints as to how that will go Putin just posted a new year's message to the Kremlin website saying he was convinced that effective dialog with Biden was possible Is it better understood what Russia is aiming at when it puts troops on the border with Ukraine Yeah well fundamentally this is about Russia trying to essentially block a Ukraine's desire to move towards the west to thwart that Russia launched a proxy war in east Ukraine in 2014 This is where Russian backed separatists have this simmering war with the government in Kyiv But this latest Russian buildup seems to be a way from Moscow to force a conversation with the U.S. about something else which is NATO's presence along Russia's borders Putin aired these concerns what he's called his red lines in a video conference call with Biden earlier this month He spelled them out again at this annual press conference he gave last week let's listen in just a bit With this So here Putin says that any further movement by NATO towards the east is completely unacceptable to Russia and he argues the U.S. wouldn't tolerate it if the Kremlin was placing its military hardware near America's borders Now now the Kremlin says it wants security guarantees from the U.S. and it's spelled out conditions It wants no NATO membership for Ukraine and another former Soviet republic Georgia It says no military presence by NATO or weapons systems along countries bordering Russia and it wants NATO to pull back its military deployments from central Eastern Europe places like Poland and the Baltic states So at the core what Putin wants is to turn the clock back on NATO's expansion after the end of the Cold War and he's using the threat of an invasion of Ukraine to try and get it How does all of this look to the other NATO allies by which I mean Western European powers that are allied with the United States but a lot nearer Russia Well certainly the eastern Europeans are not happy about this A lot of them look to NATO as a way to guarantee their security from Moscow's influence So of course they want a lot of them were former communist governments taking over by the Kremlin after World War II But I think in terms of what the Russian demands are you know is the question here is it a bargaining chip Are they trying to create a maximalist stance and see what they can get Or is it an excuse to justify Kremlin military actions when and if diplomacy fails And Paris Charles maines is in Moscow thanks Thank you There is still a backlog of ships waiting off the coast of Los Angeles because of supply chain problems Those vessels in the bay are making the region's poor air quality worse And residents are worried about what that means for their health As making Jameson with KCRW reports At his neighborhood in west Long Beach California Ron Batista is sitting at his kitchen table and while he's talking he has to pause fairly often Forgive me if it's hard for me to breathe The 72 year old musicians never been diagnosed with a lung condition but he says this shortness of breath happens sometimes part of the problem he thinks is his neighborhood's air quality which has been terrible for decades Batiste points to the grime that collects daily around the sliding glass door and the AC vent despite running an air purifier It's not just dust It's like the oil Within two miles of his home is a rail yard truck yard oil refinery and the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach the single largest source of emissions in the region and with the months long backlog at these ports California state air regulators are warning the pollution from the extra ships is like adding nearly 6 million passenger cars to the road each day Mario Cordero heads the port of Long Beach He says he's aware people find the increased emissions worrisome The number of container ships at anchor off the coast should be zero In the meantime the best way to reduce the emissions is to reduce the number of ships at anchor To do that requires clearing out the back lock which the port say should be sometime before the end of 2022 In the meantime the ports have slowed down ship arrivals and are requiring them to anchor further offshore The long-term solution is battery powered ships which Cordero says is not a short term prospect You know you're looking now and maybe by 2050 or 2040 you're going to have some real substance steps to move toward zero emission vessels or cleaner fuse According to a study published in the journal nature these port side neighborhoods have over 1000 premature deaths associated with ship pollution each year There's very clear data about living in the areas where that pollution is higher Doctor ELISA Nicholas is a pediatrician and the CEO of several local health centers near the ports She'd like the rest of the country to understand the health costs of imported cheaper goods in these communities They are affected by the goods movement that many people are benefiting from She points to higher than average rates of childhood cancer asthma and asthma related emergency room visits These communities are also lower income underinsured and majority black and brown And so really we need to realize that this is a health equity issue And it's an environmental justice issue too Long

"An idea that's coming back into. Fashion is using viruses so just like humans. Bacteria have their own viruses. We often called bacteria. This was an idea and this is not a new idea using viruses to treat bacterial infections. This has been around for one hundred years. Not suppose but it back in the early nineteen hundreds. It was discovered that you could get viruses that nickel bacteria by felix. Terrell and gogi elisa was a joint. The georgia but the republic georgia doctor there and they used viral concoctions. They got from the sewers to treat quite effectively Bacterial diseases as there are some work now. Trying to use specific viruses in the case of highly resistant infections. To kill these bacteria with some success. And i noticed by something i mean i think suzanne could speak a bit more vaccine in fact worked at the institute in georgia Fleecy i don't know where it is but on looking at some of these kind of viral viral treatments for factor diseases and went up. Yeah sure so. And i think one thing fred brought up. That was really important as this specificity. So one thing that's been really why antibiotics became so popular that it was the that sledgehammer approach A silver bullet that basically if you had almost any type of bacterial infection you could just take this pill and and get rid of it. You didn't really need to know or identify what the particular bacteria was Of course that means that you also got rid of all the potential beneficial bacteria that you had as well and that was a potential downside but now with this idea of being more precise set at being able to detect exactly what Potential bacterial species. You're infected with causing the problems that that allows us to tail learn approach to combat it and this is sort of the the benefit now of this idea of phages therapy where you're taking Maybe a collection of viruses that are Targeting very specific species or even strains of the bacteria and these are sort of thought is also self replicating Therapies because viruses soon as they infect a cell they're going to reproduce thousands or hundreds or thousands of progeny which can go on to Continue to target that selectively that bacterial pathogen and so this is definitely something people are coming back to. And i think as fred said there's been sort of mixed success and at think we're seeing it more Maybe being being used more now in cases where people have back antibacterial resistant infections. That we just haven't been able to treat the normal way This is kind of their the last ditch effort and has been really successful in those cases But there's a lot of other things that make it like. How do you. First of all identify that pathogen be able to isolate Back thrill virus that targets it and then Deliver it to the appropriate area. That's that's infected that might be internal to someone But i think it is really exciting and then with Techniques actually genetically manipulate these bacteria phages or or change them in some ways to make them more effective Is you know potentially on the yosso up is it possible suzanne to to conduct experiments to you know essentially evolve Bacteria's this again this prey to play.

So you can in by it and frankly if you used that link it helps support the show as well. didn't charge you. Extra Amazon gives those referral link commission thing so Text dated three three are- seven seven seven. The president was in Atlanta on Friday man. Traffic was bad on Friday. y'All it was horrible. I happened to get there Get to my station in Atlanta ahead to broadcast from there because I had to give a speech to the College Republic Georgia Association Culture Publicans on Friday night and I happen timed it perfectly to be able to get up there for. The motorcade went through but it was horrible and I got off God to the station. Should I had to take back roads to get into the station. I couldn't go peachtree street in Atlanta because traffic was backed up so bad. The president was doing a fundraiser. For David Purdue. The Whitney Hotel L. in Buckhead across from Lenox Mall and then went down to the Georgia World Congress Center. They got a small room. I I can tell you now What I couldn't until you on Friday there was so much embargoed about the event Friday morning when I was on air with you eat that they didn't know how many people were going to show up so they got a small room and fight. The president during his speech apologized for the size of the room. They had to turn people away. There were so many people showed up now. They turned out they turned away. Protesters I But they also turned away people who really did want to be there who really do support the president who were black they. They tried to get as many black supporters of the president in the room. white white supporters standing outside the room. The president wanted eight crowd of Mostly minority faces it. He got it now. I have gotten some extraordinary. They hate mail voicemails to the show for Charlie Villa. or Oh you should have said that. So I'm I'm going to re dress what I said on Friday as I get into the president's remarks You you too can just just deal with it I you've been a Republican politics for a very long time and it is inevitable in Republican circles within the Republican party brings out black supporters. There's borderline eccentricity. The people they like to put on stage and I have enough friends of mine In the black community who look at it as all pudding That they of course have no interest in supporting a Republican in addition to everything else. And you see this this time you know exactly what I'm talking about. It is a level of of eccentric and and when you support someone on the political side and where almost every one of your friends does not There tends to be some level of eccentricity in there perhaps or something else The now that being said this president for all his predecessors I gotTa tell you he did it right when when you looked on stage and the people they brought up on stage it was not the the way Republicans in the past have done where they brought up the people who were all decked out in their cult of personality Auty Garb and and Ryan you had business people you had moms and dads you had people who look like America. You have people who look like members of the white community entity who don't look like They're crazy it was so well done and the president made a case. I wish the president on the campaign trail would do more four of what he did. In Atlanta you had actual business people up there successful members of the community. You had people with with great families. you had individuals. You had MOMS and DADS I. Just this is the. This is a face of the Republican Party that black voters should be able to relate to and he made really good arguments for them. I and I WANNA play this clip for you. This is a long clip. And I'm just going to raise and lower the volume And Start and stop this as I talk over this because this is the sort of stuff that I think. The president needs to do on the campaign trail in general but particularly when focusing on black audiences in this. This is a real play for. It stayed so long..

Your headline for last night's draft would be what shooters shooters and more shooters Cam Johnson to me kind of said what the NBA's about EP. I think that you know what? We don't hear, Dan. We we'd never heard this. We never heard the term rim protector, and we never heard the term point guard in the NBA finals. We didn't. And, and it's it's become shooters, drivers and the game is change. And that's kind of what I saw, you know, where where what is fine? Williamson's three to five is you four, you know, John Moran John rant, they think can play with other guards it. That's what I took away from the whole deal. Dan? I just took away that the game has changed the only team that really in my mind. I don't know what's going to happen in Cleveland. But the only team in my mind and said, hey, look, we need a point guard which icago and they got one. But used to be everybody needs point. Everybody needs a four by needs. Rim protection. You'll see anymore, shooting shooting and more shooting. But what's the one team you would fit right? You would fit perfectly. What's the one team where you just shake your head and go? I don't know what they're doing. I hate to say this, but my boys here in Indiana, and I'm getting ready. I'm not sure if I'm gonna rip. I'm not sure exactly what I'm gonna do, but they take a big kid. And, and one of the things that I like to do is, is talked to scouts along along the way between the end of the season and the draft. And one of the things that they said about this. Big kid is that needs to be tougher? Now if I'm gonna have a a seven foot player from the Republic. Georgia I wanted to be a bad ass. I want him to be a tough dude with skill because that's what I see in the league so you already have two guys in Savona and, and Turner, and all of a sudden you go to your draft in another guy, you know, hopefully, it works out, and I'm gonna talk to Kevin Pritchard today on my show. But you know I sat there and wondered the team I thought that did great because I love I don't like I love Cam reddish. I thought I thought Atlanta. Yeah. Due to do the heck of a job. I love cameras, Dan, because you can shoot the Dag on basketball and he's got size. Yeah, I just as I just mentioned about ten minutes ago. He could disappear. I can watch he could be on the floor.

"From the president earlier today. No in contrast to judge T S Ellis who when sentencing Paul Manafort to forty seven months in prison last week said that he had lived in otherwise blameless life. Judge any Berman Jackson today? Spending nearly forty minutes describing the high flying influence peddler calling him a persistent liar undermine democracy for his own personal greed. We talked to Washington Post reporter Rachel winer shortly after the sentencing was handed down. So he. Tenure can prison for two counts of conspiracy, which sort of colors all of his conduct in which was a conspiracy to follow the United States by not disclosing was lobbying for Ukrainian cranium politicians in less for you. And not paying taxes on the money. They made from that work. And then after his indictment tampering with witnesses by asking them to lie about what he had done. So based on what we learned it last week. And now today he will face seven years in prison is that correct? Seven and a half that's without counting the nine months. He's already served because the jail for that witness tampering behavior nine months ago. So get credit for that. He has eighty one months more to spend, of course, like all settle the little Christmas. He could get about fifteen percent of that time shaved off for good behavior. He was in the courtroom of US district. Judge Amy Berman Jackson. What was his demeanor? And what did she tell Paul Manafort? I've been. Somewhat subdued in court. Be careful to say I was not there. My coworker. Marrano was the one actually in court. You bet for the long apology last week in Virginia where I was in court judge Ellis, criticized for not actually apologizing for anything. He had done in an effort today appear more contrite. He, but a statement saying you did in fact have been more everything he'd done any understood that what he'd done what happened to him was. But the job I think with not entirely persuaded. And she gave a very long statement about forty minutes sort of laying out what she felt like with a pattern of wrongdoing in a pattern of lies that suggests that he had not really learned anything from. His court case, so far and Rachel miner. When you saw him last week he was in a wheelchair again today. He was in wheelchair. What's his condition? Overall. What's his health issue? So out. Since he went to jail, dealing with some other minor medical issue taking some prescription. He is sixty nine years old, and they will help you when you went in and now between the gallant, I think, some eggs and. Maybe blood pressure. There's you know that. But the main thing is out. That's what they said. Be and made it hard for him to walk. And of course, the questions continue this evening as to whether or not the president will issue any sort of pardoned for Paul Manafort, and I mentioned that because we also learned today that the state of New York has filed charges against Paul Manafort. That's right. And he was found guilty in New York that are charging. So he could not be quoted. But actually the case before the supreme court right now challenging whether you can be prosecuted for the same crime than state court what you've already been in federal court because this is a lot of the same criminal behavior. It's all based around real estate transactions that what quotas manafort's Virginia trial lying to get loans on various properties that he owned. Some of which are in New York would details available at Washington Post dot com. Rachel winer. She follows the courts thank you for being with us. Meanwhile, the rubber report has yet to be issued on whatever findings they come up with regarding Russia, the twenty sixteen election and the Trump campaign, but congress is debating whether it should be made to the available to the public from the house floor the debate that included California, Democrat, Mark disown. You.

Our nation is grounded in the rule of law, and the public must be assured that government officials administer the law fairly this investigation has been about following the facts wherever they may lead getting to the truth of Russia's involvement in the two thousand sixteen election, and ensuring government is transparent and accountable to the American public this resolution does not predetermine the outcome of that investigation. It's simply expresses that the report of the special council should be made available to the congress and the American people the public including my constituents in California our constituents in California. Mr Speaker wanna know what happened nearly nine and ten Americans in both parties say the investigation should produce a full public report on their findings. Not only do the American people want to know, but they deserve to know congress needs to preserve their ability to know, our election system is an integral part of what makes us the beacon of western democracy. Any and all attempts to undermine the system is an attack on our country's values and cannot be taken lightly. This is a serious investigation with consequences for elections, democracy government, and the future of this country and democracy itself. Marcus Sonya represents California's eleventh congressional district now the houses debating on a resolution, which cannot force Robert Muller attorney general bar or the president to send materials to congress has because there is no law requiring the Justice department to release the findings which brought this response from Georgia Republican, rob Woodall, Mr Speaker when I see someone of your stature come to the chair. I think we must be down here to debate some serious American public policy. We must be down here to to change the law and ways it can only happen once in a generation when people come together to to make things happen. And I don't know what they told you when you came to the chair this morning, but let me be the first to tell you. That's why we're we're here today. What we're what we're here to say. Today is in is important that the American people have a vested interest in in confidence in our democracy. That's a value shared from the furthest side of the left to the furtherest side of the right? But the resolution we have here before us today is is just a restatement of of current law. Sometimes I think Mr Speaker that we undermine faith in the democracy. When we try to pretend that division exists where division does not where we try to pretend that we're doing great things. When in fact, we are not this is a opportunity data to speak with a voice in congress. That says the the independent counsel independent counsel. I'm sorry. The special counsel should release the report, but but let me be clear because we sometimes do more harm than than good. That's going to be the headline house votes for independent for special counsel to release the report that's not actually what the resolution says. And I wanna I wanna guide you if you've got a copy, Mr. chair. Airman you can go back through. It's not going to be on page one Giacobbe on page two or three or four five. The real substance of the of the resolution is back on page by page five early on page six and it says to the extent permitted by law because as you know from your legal background, Mr Speaker. The law does not allow the special counsel to release so many things grand jury testimony, for example, nowhere in the country is grand jury testimony disclose those facts are gathered. But that's that's never disclosed intelligence sources and methods. That's that's never disclosed nor would anybody on on the other side of the aisle suggests that it that it should be. That's why in the resolution drafted by the democratic chairman of the judiciary committee. It says specifically these things shall not be released need not be released because it's prohibited by law. I only make that point Mr Chairman because sometimes the headlines are all we read when they come through on our our Twitter feed. Sometimes the headline. We believed hell's the whole story. I just wanna make it clear that there is unanimity in this chamber that transparency is valuable in our Republic. Georgia Republican, rob Woodall. And again, this headline from Roku dot com. The battle over the Muller report now moving to the house floor. The vote is set for tomorrow live coverage on C span. Meanwhile, the Senate is poised to vote tomorrow on a house passed resolution that would stop President Trump from enacting his emergency order which would move federal dollars from one agency to another to build a wall along the southern border. We'll talk to Alex Bolton of the hill newspaper in just a moment on today's developments. But I from the Senate floor Republican Senator John Cornyn of Texas. I've heard concerns raised by my constituents and colleagues about the use of emergency powers in this situation. And I share some of those concerns I stood believed that the regular appropriation process should always be used. But unfortunately, we saw a refusal on the part of the speaker of the house and others to engage in bona fide, the goes on border security funding and left the administration with what it deemed to be an inadequate source of revenue to do the border security measures. They felt they needed in order to dress the humanitarian crisis so rather than engaging with the president and debating whether the president has the authority declared national emergency for border security, which he clearly does I think the discussion should focus on the structure of emergency powers laws moving forward, and whether congress delegated too much power not just this president. But to any president under these circumstances. Brandeis university. I think it's the Brandeis university. Did a survey of all of the grants. Congressional grants of emergency powers the has made over the last years, and as a one hundred twenty three separate statutes, which if the president declares a national emergency will allow the president to reprogram money. That's been appropriated by congress for various purposes. I think that's. That is a serious over delegation of authority by congress through the executive branch. Which is why I intend to co sponsor a Bill introduced by our colleague, Senator Lee from Utah to give congress a stronger voice in the processes under the national emergencies act. I'm going to continue to come to the floor and argue with my colleagues about what we need in that unique part of our country, which is the border region, not only to have a prosperous region in America. But also they have a safer America. And it's not as simple, frankly, as some people would have it be, and it should not be the subject of partisanship and game playing like we've seen the debate over border security under the president's request become and responding to Texas Senator John Cornyn, the democratic leader in the Senate Chuck Schumer of New York. Madam President tomorrow. The Senate will vote on a resolution to terminate the president's emergency declaration declaration, which undermines our separation of powers in order to fund the president's wall with American taxpayer dollars despite candidate trumps respected promises. That Mexico would pay for it. The resolution could not be any simpler, all it says is this. It's one single sentence quote resolved by the Senate and house of representatives of the United States of America in congress assembled that pursuant to section two two of the national emergencies act, the national emergency declared by the finding of the president on February fifteen twenty nine thousand nine hundred and proclamation ninety nine eight four four is hereby terminated that's the entirety. There's no political games here. There's no Gotcha. There's no discussion as to whether we need a wall or not whether there's a crisis on the southern border or not it simply says that this is not an emergency. Now, the vote tomorrow boils down to something very simple for our Republican friends. Do you believe in the constitution and conservative principles all these self proclaimed conservatives, well, the number one tenant of conservatism is no one particularly an executive president should have too much power. That's been what conservatives have stood for through the centuries and all of a sudden because Donald Trump. Says.
