"Investigators are still piecing together what happened a week ago on Capitol Hill when pro Trump demonstrators breached security clashed with Capitol police and four Still locked down inside of one of the city's most secure buildings. Last Wednesday's shocking event have since prompted New national security concerns. Just one week ahead of President elect Joe Biden's inauguration. Joining us down. Talk about it all w T o p NATIONAL SECURITY correspondent J. J. Green JJ. There is a very serious concern about how the riot itself. And what took place last we could can damage U. S National security for years to come explain that. That's right. Shot. Images from the riots were essentially broadcast live around the world and the U. S. Is adversaries. Russia, China. North Korea and so on, have collected these images and I can get guarantee you and law enforcement and intelligence sources tell me they're very concerned that they will be used, possibly manipulated to denigrate the U. S. And is Senator Mark Warner, who is the incoming chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, told me today it could help adversaries make the point. The U. S is no longer the Shining City on the hill. The rest of the world aspires to emulate. There's another thing, their concerns that what was stolen and how it could be used, and foreign agents could try to get ahold of it by getting in touch with the families or in touch with the people who stole them and use that as leverage against the representatives and senators, and one more thing were electronic devices placed to conduct surveillance and monitoring where they left behind. These are major questions, and they are all being looked into. So how could those be mitigated JJ Deep cleaning and Elektronik sweeps are the short term remedy right now, because repairing the damage and making sure that everything is in place and functioning properly is is what's being conducted from a physical point of view right now, But a former deputy secret service director told me just shortly ago, there needs to be serious consideration to making events like the one last week, the Electoral college just scenario. And any event where there's a joint meeting of a session of Congress, making it classified as an N N s E. A national special security event, which brings with it the same robust level of security that an inaugural has. That's what's being discussed. Final 30 seconds here, Let's shift gears a bit here.

"What we're hearing is far as a relief bill goes, is that there's optimism amongst senators. You saw some of them out yesterday, Democratic Senator Mark Warner of Virginia was out talking about how it appeared is, though, um lawmakers will be able to put forward a proposal is earliest today for another coronavirus stimulus package, saying the details about the piece of legislation could be worked out as early as this morning so that they would have everything finalized. Ready to go. What the legislation out there and begin the process of seeing if they get support for it from other senators, which we're hearing in some cases like Bernie Sanders, he is not in support of this $908 billion packages out there, mainly because There's no inclusion of any sort of stimulus check going out there. Yes, there's unemployment insurance will pay $300 a week for a period of four months. Yes, there are elements to the P p p portion of things, but There is no individual stimulus check in there, and that's a little tough when you're trying to call this the stimulus package that would make this just a relief package for the most part, so the discussion seemingly ongoing here, but they think they've got the top line numbers. Now they're getting the language finalized, and they should have. This thing is early as today on some level and again. This is a short of a four month emergency relief package. So there will be more discussions having to be had

Bipartisan group of senators announces $908 billion stimulus plan, aiming to break logjam

"On. Roy joins us with the latest. And maybe her rendition of a christmas carol. I don't know you know it's up to you. I do love the christmas season. Joe and what democrats are doing right now is trying to make the christmas season a little bit more mary. For unemployed workers there is interest on both sides of the aisle in breaking this logjam on capitol hill surrounding neta virus. Relief package and today more than thirty democrats are getting behind a new push to extend expiring unemployment benefits for twelve million workers before they go away at the end of the year. Virginia senator mark warner is leading this effort with a letter to the leadership of both parties. That says letting these payments lapsed during the holiday season would be cruel and that it would hit the services sector and the art especially hard. The letter says these workers are all facing job loss. It has nothing to do with their skills abilities or performance now there have been some preliminary conversations in the senate on bipartisan measures. That might be able to pass alongside the government funding bill next week and so this letter is just one indication. Democrats appear to be coalescing around the problem of what they're calling the benefits cliff also today senators ron wyden and sherrod brown the top democrats on the finance and banking committees as well as colorado senator michael bennet. They're unveiling bill that would extend these expiring provisions and it would also reinstate that six hundred dollars in enhanced unemployment benefits that has been more controversial and has been one of the sticking points in these broader negotiations surprise. This could be a sign that democrats might be willing to accept something smaller than that to you. Trillion dollar deal

Q&A with Senate hopeful Daniel Gade

"Weeks away. But nearly 38 million voters have already cast their ballots. That includes roughly 1.5 million voters in Virginia, where incumbent Democratic Senator Mark Warner is facing off against Republican challenger Daniel Gate. In a state that's become increasingly blew some of called Gates Campaign a longshot recent polling shows Warner up by almost 16 point. We've had Senator Warner on the show twice this year, but we haven't heard from his opponent yet. And that changes today. Daniel Gate. Welcome to one, eh? It's a pleasure to be on Earth. You thank you so much. And we should note that Daniel was also a professor at American University, which holds the license for our parent station. W AM. You So you're a military veteran and a disability rights activists running for office for the first time. What made you decide to run? Well, you're right. I'm a military veteran. I spent 25 years in the U. S Army and was wounded in combat twice decorated for valor, gave a leg in combat my hip level amputee and then later went on to get a PhD and a master's degree in public policy working in both the Bush and the Trump administration, so I'm a public policy expert, and I consider this race an extension of my military service, in the sense that I've been under oath to the Constitution my whole life, and this is just more service as someone with a little experience in politics. You've been running in part on the idea that you're Ah Washington. Outsider. Why do you see that as an advantage? Well, it's an advantage because you know, I think Virginians are sick of and nationally you see people sick of career politicians who have done little to solve our problems. I'll give you a couple of examples. When Mark Warner took office in 2008, he pledged 2009. He was elected Noh eight, but he pledged to be a budget hawk and back Then the deficit was $12 trillion, and now it's something like $27 Trillion or the debt rather And on issue after issue. There's a history of broken promises here, and even the Washington Post's no friend of Republicans said that he had quote muddled through his time in the Senate with few signature accomplishments. That's from spring of 2019 so This is who the career politicians are, and people are sick of it. They want career servants, and I'm a career servant of the Constitution. And that's the fundamental difference between us. But Republicans have held a majority in the Senate for some time. So how much of that? Can you lay? At Senator Warren Warner's feet. Will remember at the beginning of his time in the Senate. Back in 09, 10 and 11. The Democrats had a super majority in the Senate, not just a majority, but a super majority and and the White House and for the bulk of his time in the Senate, the White House and the Senate have been Held by Democrats, So it's not. It's true that there has been some fiscal indiscipline by Republicans as well. And I'm not in favor of that, either. What? Explain a little bit one example. What approach which you take to fiscal responsibility if elected. Oh, sure, one thing we need and I know a lot of people talk about this, and then they get to Washington. See and forget about it. D C has proven that we need about balanced Budget amendment and it can have an escape hatch for emergencies with, you know, some kind of three quarters majority in both houses to override for a period of time and You can write it so that it's not a suicide pact. But we absolutely must have that. And that means we need to weigh need to take seriously our obligation to our future generations. And that's something that I care deeply about. Do you think there's a political will for that kind of move? No, there's not on Capitol Hill. Of course, there's not, And the reason there's not is because they all are feeding at the same trough, Republicans and Democrats alike. But there's absolutely political will for it on Main Street, and it's a very populist thing, people. That's what people want. People want Washington to spend within its means, just like every state has to and just like every family has to. So if this is not rocket science, so if you're critiquing both Democrats and Republicans for this issue, how would you shift that dynamic if you're elected? Well, The first thing is that we need to elect Republicans who have a spine and we need Teo and we need to work. Of course we need to work cross, but we also need to tie into our core principles and his Republicans. Far too often, We've abandoned our core principles in favor of short term gain. And so that's you know, that's a broad based critique of my party and of end of, frankly, the other party as well. There hasn't been a Republican elected to statewide office in Virginia for more than 10 years, and some of called your Senate run a serious long shot. What makes you think Virginia could shift red again? Well, a couple of things one is you know, in the last quarter, I actually outraised Mark Warner, which was fantastic. And and what we're seeing at the doors on our phone calls and in our polling is that when independence here about me And my bio just my history of service to the country and my qualifications for the office. The fact that I have a PhD in policy they're coming over 2 to 12 to one and part of that is Mark Warner's failures on you Know, he voted against Cove it really for Virginia families. He voted he put in a budget that defunded the police by $50 million in 2002 as governor. And when people discovered that kind of thing, they're like, Wait a second, he says. He's moderate. But in actuality he's not. And so that kind of betrayal is really digging in and people are sick and tired of it. Well as we speak. There's a debate in Congress

Another 4.4 Million; Reopening Georgia; Oil, Oil Everywhere

"Look at. What's been happening another week? In the pandemic another round of unemployment data this week's Labor Department report of initial jobless claims revealed an additional four point four million Americans have newly filed for unemployment benefits. That brings the five week total to well over. Twenty six million people completely erasing job gains for the last decade since the recession four point four million is actually lower than the number from last week which could be a sign that the corona virus impact on the real economy may have hit its peak but the curve differs state by state in New York for example claims. This week were about half of what they were week before in Florida. Though new findings were nearly double while the number of American signing up for unemployment benefits grows states. Like Florida are setting near-term timelines to reopen their economies earlier. This week Georgia governor. Brian Kemp announced his plan to partially reopened his State's economy as soon as tomorrow governors of Ohio Tennessee and Florida as I mentioned have also tested the waters with opening plans. The announcement prompted a backlash from some public health officials. Lawmakers and the President Hears Becky quick the Virginia senator. Mark Warner is here and obviously he's been watching all of this play out. Senator Warner thanks for joining us today. If people are home aren't getting paid can open their businesses. They're getting more and more frustrated with this. How do we handle this? How do we kind of figure out where it's okay to open up again where it's not all? I think two things one clearly people are frustrated. My concern is you reopening should be a priority but it's got to be data driven. I think the president's own recommendations have been you need to see fourteen days of declining cases and my concern is if we send back people and only half the workforce goes back because people were concerned or God forbid they go back and you get another spike in the virus and then you may lose. The confidence of your folks entirely I know is a former governor. I would be having this data driven as possible. The president did ask me to serve on his on his taskforce. And I'm my contribution I hope will be. We need more testing testing testing testing. And the fact that we don't even have a common information data site out there that can say what are all the tests that have been approved. What's in the pipeline? What does the FDA about to approve that might give us all a little more guidance? On what the schedule might look like because if we can do the testing in an efficient way do the contact tracing then. I think we can move. As we've seen the cases come down into a reopening face and just wonder how long before we get some of those things testing ability and and the data ability based on everything you know well the FDA has been in the process of approving both additional swab type tests and the antibody tests. I think they're both proceeding on a parallel track in the bill. That's passed to. Hopefully we'll be past today. There's twenty five billion dollars for testing. That's a remarkable investment and clearly testing has to be coordinated on a national level. The one thing I hope the president would not try to impose similar to I think the mistaken he's approached. Ppi which is every state for themselves simply driving up the cost of this equipment. The testing level has to be coordinated at the national level. The fact that there's already a national information site out there. I've actually started to work with Johns Hopkins University who created the definitive site on tracking the virus. There now trying to create. And I think we'll be going live shortly with the the definitive site on testing. We have that information that will be a great guide to governors and others on reopening senator. Sorry about that having technical issues here today. Let me just ask you though. I were doing the state by state because it's hard to come up with the federal plan when there's so many differences between the states but even within the states there are huge differences. cases obviously are much higher in the cities and congested areas and in states where you have lots rural areas Right outside some of those cities. That may be a big part of the problem. Too Do you. Do you think this needs to go almost by a on a county by county basis or is that problematic? I think we need to look at it. Both state and region-wide. You know my state Virginia very very large state you know. I live up in the greater Washington area. You know you can't just open northern Virginia without dealing with DC and Maryland on the other hand. We've got parts of our state. Southern Virginia South side South West Virginia. Eight or nine hours away. They might have a different reopening schedule. But even some of those rural communities we've seen counties with a dramatic spike so I do think you need flexibility. Here there will be some regional reopenings. But you gotTa have that testing equipment and one of the other things. I hope we can get to. We're also going to try to do in terms of restarting the economy in terms of federal support. Because I've got some different ideas there as well and I want you to explain that to us ways of trying to reach out and help small businesses as well as what we've already seen what we've what we've got right now is we've we've got kind of a barbell approach where we've done a very generous program for the airlines and parts of air cargo and even with the challenges with small businesses five hundred and under we've got the eight weeks of of payroll and a little bit of overhead. We've done frankly nothing for the middle market the so-called mainstream facility. I don't think the take-up rates going to be very great. There's no loan forgiveness. We've got this cliff affect if you're under five hundred you get everything taken care of if you've got seven hundred employees you've got nothing so looking at how our reaction has been with the numbers which. I'm sure we'll see a little bit later this morning. Four or five additional million additional unemployed. Maybe we ought to take a step back since this is probably not going to be v-shaped recovery and look at actually what Europe has done and actually put together a paycheck support program paycheck security program. I've laid out some ideas there and we've got support on this idea ranging from Bernie Sanders on the left to Josh. Holly a very conservative senator from Missouri. On the right and a whole series of kind of opinion pages from left to right the Europeans have only seen a two to four percent increase in unemployment. Because they've had this direct payroll support Our plan would get rid of some of the problems around the P P P program. You'd have to actually show a twenty percent revenue decline. So you wouldn't have some of the abuses taking place we would use the payroll processors to provide direct payroll support for folks up and down the food chain and might be a chance as we look at this covert four package. Then we'll come up in a couple of weeks to step back and say if this is going to continue this level of support for the next few months we may learn from what's happening What better approaches from abroad candidly right now with six trillion dollars that we've already put out before the five hundred billion today when you add into thirteen three fed lending facility. You know there may be a smarter. Way To distribute those resources senator some interesting ideas and ways of refining this We hope you'll come back as we move closer towards Kind of addressing the nest factions package.

Google Health Data Project Under Scrutiny

"So what are tech companies doing with your data. Google is handling the medical records of millions of Americans as part of a big push into the healthcare industry. A project between the tech giant. One of the country's largest hospital change chains is under scrutiny by federal regulators and lawmakers. Who are asking if Google can really be trusted? This is just the latest example of big tech companies making forays into health care and also raising questions about patient privacy and just know here. Google is among NPR's financial supporters. Porter's I want to bring in. NPR Tech correspondent Shannon Bond. Good Morning Shannon Morning David. Okay so Google has a project called project nightingale would is it. This is a deal deal. Goule has struck with ascension which is a big Catholic healthcare system that operates hospitals and doctors offices across twenty states and DC. I it was first reported by the Wall Street Street Journal. This week in Google has since confirmed it it says it has a contract to manage ascensions clinical data. So that's test results hospitalization records your treatment records your whole Oh health history. Sure the companies say they want to improve patient care and they're working on artificial intelligence tools to help get there and is anyone who's dealt with a doctor's office or a hospital. It'll knows a lot of these systems are really fragmented so one doctor might not have any idea what you know. Other parts of the system are doing all. These healthcare providers are looking into move electronic medical records into the cloud and for tech companies. They there's this massive business opportunity to do that. Not just for Google but the other tech giants to like apple and Amazon and Microsoft so all of this could be good for patients. I mean if it organizes your medical records if it can make recommendations for treatment and so forth so so take me to the other side of this which is the the worry. Yeah I think it really comes down to privacy Google already know so much about all of us now. We're talking about medical article history health information. This is sensitive stuff in so critics are asking. What else might Google do? With this data. It comes on the heels of Google's recent announcement that it's buying fitbit which makes fitness trackers and spending two billion dollars on that deal. You know so these are the questions that are being raised. Spoke with Tiffany Lee. A visiting technology law professor professor at Boston University. And she says these aggressive moves into healthcare by Google are going to increase. The scrutiny of the company is already under so any sort of acquisition or any any sort of partnership that gives them more. Data will only give Google more power and more ability to be influential in the healthcare sector essentially a Google Elsa ghouls not allowed to use this data for its own advertising or research data's encrypted it's on Google server but in space exclusively for ascension but Google well does say that some Google employees working on the project have access to the data and there are strict federal laws about who gets to handle patients health information and Google states abiding adding by those laws. And so all of that. You just said Is that satisfying lawmakers and regulators. Are they going to keep asking a lot of questions here. Well this this week the US Department of Health and Human Services says it wants more information about how the companies are collecting these medical records to make sure they are following the law. And Senator Senator Mark Warner of Virginia said. Google essentially should stop this project while it's being reviewed he told CNBC he's concerned about whether patients have been notified properly about this. You know about their data going into Google systems. Some critics are also saying the Google just doesn't have a great track record on privacy especially when it comes to health data there the companies. What he's being sued over how it handled health data for a research project with the University of Chicago? The company and the University Hospital were accused of leaving identifiable information and the data. Now Google's denied those accusations and you know when I talked to people at the company they say look. There's a lot of competition there's as race among tech companies to get into healthcare and they don't want to let anything slow them down here

"This once again former vice president Joe Biden getting a bit lost in the crowd this is the live coverage of the Iowa state fair here on C. span radio up next the Senate cybersecurity caucus talking about cyber threats facing the health care industry experts outlying examples of risks and policy recommendations addressing them the rest include insider threat and ransomware attacks at hospitals hacking of medical devices and privacy challenges with healthcare apps health policy adviser to senator mark Warner Greg Mathis begins this took place Tuesday this runs an hour I will good afternoon everyone thanks for joining us today my name is Greg Mathis some health policy adviser to senator mark Warner and that thank you again for joining us for this Senate cybersecurity caucus briefing today it's going to be on cyber security and healthcare as many of you may know senator Warner along with senator Cory Gardner start the bi partisan Senate cybersecurity task force in two thousand and sixteen with the goal of shedding light on some of the most pressing issues of our time when it comes to cyber security threats and how they impact our nation for today's briefing I think specifically we've seen a number of very high profile expensive and quite frankly potentially dangerous cyber security attacks and in our nation's healthcare sector we brought in to individuals they they have a wealth of knowledge in this area both Robert lord who is the chief strategy officer at pro in this but tennis I'm sorry about that and so he'll be here to give a presentation to us talk about this important topic as well as we have Jen covert here who is the CEO of he he H. I. and so with out further due out let the first presentation to start it thanks so much Gregg and thanks so much everyone I very rarely give talks that are standing room only so really appreciate your guys interested act as Greg mentioned I'm Robert Gordon that co founder and president chief strategy officer of protests and also I'm a fellow at new America cyber security policy program wall a lot of information today I'm presenting comes from research that we've done it for tennis and some of the work that were currently building at new America I'm not speaking on behalf of either of those organizations today really just talking from my experience and providing a little bit of perspective on the challenges that we see in this space I guess it contextualize this a little bit because I think sometimes we talk about cyber security it can be a little bit too much bits and bytes and people and hoodies the first thing that I always think about when I think about in healthcare cyber security is is the patients that I had when I was in medical school I was really fortunate to work in a clinic that focused on treating HIV positive patients in Baltimore when I was in med school and one of the things you learn very quickly that this population other than their an absolutely wonderful really complex rewarding population of work with is that they have extraordinary concerns around the privacy and security of their information they will go to extreme lengths to make sure the people do not find out about their diagnosis or treatment or that they're coworkers they're communities and so many others that might use this information against them this extremely vulnerable community and one of the things that I began to think about treating these patients was what are we actually doing to defend their health data and their information these extremely sensitive records and the more that you dig into that question this is back in twenty thirteen and twenty fourteen when I started the more horrifying the answer is the reality is the challenges that we face in protecting health data are extraordinarily difficult and today all really try and and give you a taste not only of the important anecdotes and stories the color this challenge but also the data behind all so I think it makes sense to start with the anthem breach back in twenty fifteen this was really for many people and at a loss for showing it who here got one of the anthem notification letters yeah I did too so this was about half of the US population more or less about a third or after about a hundred and forty million medical records breach will never really know the exact number of patients affected but for many this was a massive wake up call to the fact that health data was highly centralized in many cases highly vulnerable and highly valuable to certain parties as well unfortunately the story did not and with the anthem breach in twenty fifteen the hits keep on coming so we just had a very recent breach a a lab core M. CA breach with about twenty million medical records or patient data individual patient data pieces that were identified now we'll see what the final numbers are there of course back in twenty sixteen we had a major ransomware attack that reduced an entire hospital system to pencil and paper so imagine all the electronic health records all the electronic systems the use and health system I certainly can't thinking back to my days on the words and I use a pencil and paper and what is not connected to an electronic system pretty scary and this isn't just a couple of anecdotes either if you look in really scale it out recent report I'm really back not too long ago sure that seventy percent of health systems reported experiencing a major data breach and a third of those experience one in the last year so if you think about this entire picture together we are in a pretty terrifying state right now and it's one that we're not necessarily always talking about but I can tell you health systems are very aware of it all the time so I'm not a big person on speculation but also it always makes sense of being proactively there's also the significant possibility raised recently in a Bloomberg article of the ability of whether it's state actors individuals or other types of criminals to engage in medical blackmail typically these types of incidents are highly behind the scenes there are some kind of gray area reports that this does happen to most of the time these are not reported if that is the case so do the stories of anecdotes but I don't really want to focus about what could be I want really want to show you the data for the rest of my presentation day that shows you what we are facing right now and what the trends are but I think for some of you in the audience you're gonna know everything that I'm talking about really clearly for others I do want to contextualize why health data is so valuable so by some reports and I think these are a little bit exaggerated but they give you a sense of what these records can be worth a single individual medical record can go for upwards of a thousand dollars on the black market now these have been deflated as more medical records of come on the black market you'll see those numbers come way down but there's a lot of value to and there's a lot of value for a lot of reasons they can be used for insurance fraud and fraudulent claims you can steal someone's ID and you can do it very comprehensively when you think about the information in a medical record it's pretty much the entire history of someone's past illnesses their family members their locations their financial information it's all in there I mean the only thing more it has more information on individual is probably like a conference of top secret clearance document in the United States this is a repair she's been radio programming from Thursday you can use to open financial accounts because the richness of that data so insurance our bank accounts as you mention medical blackmail that could be criminal or state based you can also unfortunately people use it for Monday in personal attacks for courtroom litigation in messy divorce cases we've seen it all out there and then of course you can run for fraudulent Medicare Medicaid billing males as well that we've seen completely open up create synthetic patients in and built to those patients so a lot of unfortunately really terrible and really add deeply devastating crimes that can be committed with medical records that obviously have impacts you can go on for years and years actually recently there was a CBS this morning report that featured some the date I'm going to show you today that showcased an individual who basically and while he was in the service yet as medical identity stolen and he was resolving those challenges for fifteen years afterwards and still suffers from some challenges with his credit and wonderful guy and he's been dealt quite a hard blow so what I'm gonna show you next is specifically the data that we collect on a regular basis super tennis is the world's leading health care compliance analytics platform focusing on detecting dangerous activities and health care but I'm not here to talk about my company on that side we also have a research group that works with third parties to identify trends in health data breaches and health cyber security in general what I'm gonna show you here is the information we've collected both from public sources as well as at the end a little bit of really interesting proprietary data that I think will add some color that you're not normally going to see in the space so one thing to start out is that since twenty ten and I don't show all the way back here but since twenty ten there has been a systematic increase in the number of data breaches that occur every single year without fail without exception we see this since we've been tracking the data specifically we've seen it every year and already were projected to have a another record year this number that you see here the two eighty five is just a half your estimate from our recent analysis and so if it were to continue along this trend we're gonna beat out twenty eighteen unfortunately this is the number of incidents you also I look at the number of records preached so again we're excluding the twenty fifteen at the breach where if you added that calling just go up to about a hundred and seventy million records that year something in twenty fifteen but twenty sixteen we had a banner year with some big big big big breaches of that was almost thirty million twenty seventeen so it's sort of thing okay now it's gonna normalize a little bit maybe we've act that was just a couple of big breaches and and it'll get better that of course tripled in twenty eighteen and twenty nineteen that estimate the you see up there of almost thirty two million that is just a half year estimate that is just that is not yet annualized for the full year so we are once again on trend to break yet another record when it comes to the number of records breach Robert lord is with a protest data security importantly you may want to know where all this preaching is actually occurring so of course hacking is a major concern that's what people usually think about when they're thinking about these types of challenges but and and that breaks down and I can go into a little more detail but that's a mix of what we've seen from a fishing perspective there certain types of malware there's kind of some miscellaneous threats and I won't go into all the the deep details there but we provide a break down of this in the breach barometer which by the way you can download and subscribe to and it's totally free just Google pretend it's breach browner and and you can find it but a huge proportion and this is relatively consistent between twenty five and forty percent of reaches our duty insiders that is individuals who have some legitimate.

hitting another snag the white house is issued a veto threat saying the measure lacks money for beds that immigration and customs enforcement needs to let it detain more migrants white asa ficials also complained the house bill has no money to toughen border security house leaders are still hoping for approval as early as today also in the dossier texas congresswoman says about thirty children remain in a remote border patrol station in south texas where reportedly three hundred immigrant children have been detained attorneys who visited that facility near el paso just last week say they saw children who are hungry and dirty and hadn't showered in day also part of the dossier capital metro's got some good news ridership numbers continue the upward trend the latest report shows a jump if he'd levin point five percent of the month of may compared to a year ago now was earlier capital metro says an increase of more than two hundred seventy four thousand people they say the numbers are also up in the month of april which is good news they say not a critics say well that's because you allow more people to ride for free during the summer months exactly now also in the dossier some members of the austin police department so they can expect to see tent cities popping up in austin by the end of the year that is the warning from top brass at police headquarters this law since the city council changed its homeless ordinances there's a growing concern about tents lining congress avenue but mayor steve adler speaking with fox seven news he says that's silly it certainly makes sense to me that when we're dentist buying areas or people can be where they can't be congress avenue is not a good place for people to be camping out of the police association thinks the city council decision is backfiring as evidence might give it a greg abbott threatening to step in and say the state could override local leaders on this issue now also in the dossier you know how much your personal details are really worth on you but how much are those dietsch worth two companies that collect it like google facebook and amazon it's a question that some lawmakers on capitol hill want to answer as they increase pressure on these big tech giant's disclose how much information about us that they're really connecting are collecting that is how much they get it get for sharing it with advertisers senator mark warner of virginia and josh holly of missouri had proposed legislation that would force google facebook and amazon to tell its users what data is being collected from those users how much that information is worth what it sold to marketers out there across the planet gotta be worth something yeah for sure i mean they're bad you know i'm about to make a purchase due to a pop up that came up because of a search i did and it it does work it does work that star daily dossier it's on the front page for websites at newsradio k._l._b._j. dot com with links provided more details on each one of those stories you can also follow us in the world of youtube at tie jeffries and at newsradio k._l._b._j. speaking of the data that's collected on us here's what josh holly he's a republican from zuri he says what a big tech company says its product is free consumers are the ones being sold these free products track every thing we do so tech companies can sell our information to the highest bidder and use it to target us with creepy ads even worse tech companies do their best to hide how much consumer data is worth and to whom it's being sold to would you like to know that what is being specific collected on you and who they're selling that information to i would i'm not necessarily you know worried about losing sleep about it but it would be fascinating to see the trail of how far it goes and who goes to specifically heroes to absolutely well here's the measure would require commercial services with more than one hundred million active monthly users to disclose to their customers in the financial regulators the types of data that is being collected they would also have to bribe their users with an assessment at frequent intervals of data's value on them how much the data's worth on you right how much we're selling it for that sort of today yeah yeah yeah i never thought it would have an effect on me but it when think back no actually there's several purchases i have made as a result of of some of these things now it comes as a bipartisan support grows in congress for a privacy law that could sharply rain in the ability of these big tech companies to collect and make money from users personal data now at the same time a house panel is open a bipartisan investigation into market dominance specifically facebook google amazon there's a lot of fear especially in those tech headquarters that they could be broken up by lawmakers we've done it before industry the electric industry and and and there's more and more folks saying it's time to break these tech giants up yep yep and shirt certainly not great for small business that's for sure say all right it is seven twelve here on the totta don show we're talking earlier about lift or rather

"To one A. It's Todd's willik before we get back to our conversation on Betsy DeVos and the department of education. I'd love your help with tomorrow show Virginia Senator Mark Warner will join us to talk about the Trump campaign, the leadership scandals in his home state, and he'll take your questions as well. Senator Warner recently said there is a ton of evidence to suggest that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia, and he's the top democrat on the Senate intelligence committee. So what do you want to ask? Mark Warner leave us a voicemail. Eight five five two three six one eight one. Do you have a question for Virginia? Senator Mark Warner share it with us eight five five two three six one eight one that's eight five five two three six one two one two. We'll put some of your questions to democratic Senator. Mark Warner of Regina that's tomorrow on one a well back to our discussion on Betsy DeVos and the department of education. I want to bring in democratic congressman Bobby Scott who represents Virginia's third congressional. District. That's the Hampton roads region of southern Virginia. Tidewater he's the current chairman of the house committee on education and labor newly named chairman in this new era of democratic control. Mr Chairman, thanks for being on one A dot it's good to be with you. It's good to have you as well. The tax credit program. We spent some time on Mr Chairman, I asked Jim blue if it was dead in the water. He didn't seem to think. So he thought that they could get from some support for this from Democrats in congress. I suppose the football goes to you. Well, we'll consider whatever they propose one of the problems says we haven't seen many details. They call it a five billion dollar program. I don't see how you can limit it to five billion if on April fifteenth people father taxes and claim fifty billion dollars worth of tax credits. I don't know how you deny people their tax credit. We'll we'll see how that works. But the fact is it's one hundred percent tax credit. So that you can install whatever your taxes are you can decide to write a check to the scholarship program and just not pay taxes. So there is a significant munition in revenue, and if you're going to spend that kind of money seems to me it's better spent in education on Pell grants or title one or headstart or other things will actually improve education. He mentioned that. School choices popular while the rhetoric is popular where you can go to any school, you want to public private or parochial school that you want to. But the fact is ninety five percent of the students are gonna end up in public school. And if you've taken money away from public schools, and they'll have a rougher situation where they are. So taking the administration's part here for a moment. Mr Chairman, they would say this does not take money away from public schools because it's private money going to private people. But your point as I take it is that tax credit has to be paid for in that money's gonna come out of school somehow. Well, it's money that when you have one hundred percent tax credit every dollar. That's given is a dollar less coming in revenue if you're going to spend money in education, there are better ways of spending it then scholarship program. This totally undefined. I want to get to the bottom line. Are you are you devoted to killing this or are you still in learn more phase? Well, you know, you have to consider any proposal that's made. But I I think it's fair to say that I'm skeptical skeptical. You're not chairman of this committee that gives you oversight power over the department of education. There are a lot of areas of a lot of concern from advocates educators students, as you know, union members teachers across the board, and you are taking control of a portfolio that has been very controversial for many many years. Mr Chairman, give me a sense of your roadmap for oversight for the department of education now. Well, first of all, I think you have to point out focusing on education and issues before the committee that focus is going to be difficult in the last two days last week. We had a we reported legislation on a school construction Bill gender discrimination Bill we had hearings on school discipline workplace safety ahead budget briefings in a hearing on the twenty seventeen tax cut, multiple other meetings. And all the media reported to my constituents was that Michael Cohen was testifying and congress, and that's all the media is interested in focusing on education is obviously going to be a challenge. But there are a lot of oversight issues one of which we have k- through twelve where every student succeeds act was passed a couple of years ago, which gave flexibility to local and state government. But there's no flexibility on the requirement to ascertain whether or not their achievement gaps. And if so what are you doing you have to have a credible plan to eliminate them? We have concerns that the department of education was in the process of approving plans that are not nearly aggressive enough to to to comply with the spirit of that law. We have. Civil rights concerns with the administration. One of the first things they did in light in spite of a jail report that show to our schools are becoming more and more racially segregated the first thing they did was to eliminate a program that helped localities integrate their schools now, that's a little complicated because the supreme court has put roadblocks in front of some voluntary school integration plants, but it can be done, but you have to do it correctly and the guidance and they eliminated a program that that helped helped them do that what have your discussions with the administration? Ben like since you took over as chairman, would you describe this as a work together Colegio type of relationship is there a relationship you get your phone calls answered? Can you talk to the chief of staff? How's it working? Well, we've. In the past several years. I two years of the administration. We've asked a lot of questions. In my capacity of ranking member of the Boston. And. I believe that you know. I remember one report that said that administration officials were directed not to bother to answer questions unless they came quote from the committee from the committee means the majority, and so frankly, we didn't get a lot of answers to questions who would post what about now. Well, we're we've asked a lot of questions we've just begun. For month of January was organization and monta February we've begun asking questions and. Some have been not as complete as would like we're going to follow through. We spend a little time before you sat down Mr Chairman on the issue of title nine in enforcement of gender discrimination and sexual harassment rules at institutions that receive public money. We're waiting on the administration's final rules is Andrew mentioned over one hundred thousand comments, I know the media's covering Michael Cohen, but people out there are extremely interested in this issue. What's your posture? Now, you're waiting on rules to come out as well. And then and then what? Well, there there are several issues in the draft role. One is changing the burden of proof from preponderance of the evidence to clear and convincing which is much more difficult burden to to to carry you can win a civil lawsuit with preponderance of evidence. And increasing the standard to clear and convincing. We'll just make it more difficult for victims to prove their their case who. Is is who you report to and who's responsible? I mean, you can have a campus where there is a widespread understanding and reputation the things are going wrong. Unless someone is in a position to have gotten a written report. There's no obligation for anybody to do anything. I think if people are aware of a problem they ought to have to act, and then I think is as was mentioned where the offence occurred. They have limited I think unnecessarily to on campus or campus events. There are a lot of students live off campus and problems occur. Right close to the campus. But not technically on the campus. And I think those ought to be part of it. So there there are a lot of little details. That have to be worked out. It's a complicated issue. And they got a hundred thousand comments, and I think as they consider the comments, hopefully, they'll improve their draft. And since you've come on the air. Mr Chairman, people are right back on this issue of tax credits. In school vouchers Gan tweets, I think Betsy DeVos doesn't understand about education that it benefits the public? Therefore, it should be owned by. The public vouchers and four profit schools fly in the face of that idea and Rachel rights. The issue of accountability and transparency I have no problem with taxes supporting education in many forms, a better educated population benefits us, all but of schools take public money in the form of vouchers or tax credits. They should be subject to the same reporting and performance standards as publicly funded local and charter schools. One of the problems with the proposal is the no details to it. What oversight there is for a school receives money through this program? Is haven't seen any details on that? So it's hard to respond. But the fact is that money will be diverted from the federal revenues into this program. And if you're going to spend that kind of money, it ought to be spent on something that we know will help the public education. So Mr Chairman, what about the overall state of not only education policy legislation in congress, but oversight you've got a Republican controlled Senate Democratic controlled house. I could be wrong. But I don't see any Bobby Scott Bill on education that President Trump would probably signed as does that mean, we're in a holding pattern at least for the next two years of of DOE policies that you can criticise into oversight on but no significant legislation that there is. Evaluate oversight one of the problems with you mentioned for profit education in the higher education. A lot of the for profit schools are problematic. Many of them are closing abruptly leaving students in a lurch. There is a program called boroughs defense. If you're in a school that abruptly closes you have the right not to pay the student loan. The process for getting borrows defense has been subject to attack by this administration. They've been undermining your ability to get borrows defense. And we've asked a lot of questions that I think the questions themselves have modified the stance, and I think improved student's ability to get borrows defense, but their sell over one hundred thousand students waiting in line to get consideration there other higher power education issues that, but we'd need to make sure that just asking the question many times. Can get results the power of oversight. Mr Chairman that you talk about in in the role of oversight that does seem like where we're at for the next two years. I ask it in this spirit. Have there been any substantive discussions between you and Betsy DeVos or anyone else in a position to sponsor of legislation and the Trump administration to suggest there may be any in the next to you in terms of oversight. We asked there's an a creditor ACS. Yes, that has been problematic and we've asked questions about that. Now, they know what is that in a creditor of creditor of the for profit, basically the four profit sector. They have historically accredited schools in a problematic, and you can't get you can't participate in student loans.

"And water conservation fund, eight report Republicans voted no to that legislation. The Senate convenes reconvenes tomorrow at ten AM eastern end will resume debate on the nomination of William bar to be attorney general. But earlier today the Senate voted to limit debate on the nomination of William Barnaby, attorney general and that vote was fifty five to forty four. Now before the vote democratic Senator Mark Warner Virginia vice chair of the intelligence committee spoke in opposition. President. I rise today to oppose the nomination of William bar to be the attorney general nomination that the Senate will be taking up later today. I have a number of concerns about the nominee on policy. I echo what my colleagues on. The judiciary committee have said about Mr. bars troubling wreck on important issues affecting Americans constitutional freedoms. He advocated for harsh mandatory minimum sentences as well as the president's Muslim ban. I also have serious concerns about his past statements about LGBTQ equality and the role of government in women's reproductive healthcare. As one telling example, he testified in his nineteen Ninety-one confirmation hearing that Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided and should be over overruled on all of these issues this nominee. I believe is out of step with abuse. The vast majority of the American public. But for me this nomination in my objection to this nomination is not simply objection based on policy grounds. Nor is it. A question of Mr. bars experience as a former attorney general Mr. bar has long been well respected within the legal community. But frankly, the nominee for our nation's highest law enforcement position must be measured by more than his resume. Instead for me, particularly at this moment in time. This is a question Mr. Vars, fidelity to our constitution. I find Mr. bars actions in the months leading up to his nomination to be deeply disturbing. And as a result. I have serious doubts about this nominees independence and willingness to stand up for rule of law. Last june. Mr. bar rutty secret unsolicited metal attacking special counsel, Robert Mueller's investigation into potential obstruction of Justice by the president. Sabar then took this unsolicited mental and passed it on to administration officials. You all know what happened afterwards? In November President Donald Trump fired. Attorney general Jeff Sessions after months of public abuse over attorney general's general sessions unwillingness to rein in or kneecap. The Muller investigation. For a temporary replacement. He chose not Whitaker. Was we've seen recently from his testimony over on the house side whose primary qualification to be acting attorney general appears to have been an op Ed he wrote decrying the scope of the Muller pro. With Mr. bars nomination. It has become again clear, and we hear it again in some of the president's comments last night in El Paso. That's the president's major concern in choosing a new attorney general will be to choose someone who shield him from a special counsel's investigation. And to me, Mr. bars unsolicited memo. Looks much like a job application to try to appeal to the president on those qualifications..

"Virginia. An awful week for Virginia. According to Senator Mark Warner Jeff junior is an army combat veteran and was the Republican candidate for Virginia in the eleventh congressional district. But I gotta ask mister dove. If you're starting to think about running statewide now as it sir seems like there's going to be some opportunities. Thank you for having me on Larry. I really appreciate it. I tell you this week in a very disappointing week to say the least. You know, I had somebody call and say, listen, why is everyone making a big deal about this black face thing? You know, if there's purity in your heart, and I'm paraphrasing. But if you're not doing it to play the clown, and you're doing it to honor. And you you're a fan of say Michael Jackson. What's the big deal? Can you from your perspective sort of explain that a little bit because I think some people are still sort of dumbfounded by that? Challenge. Anyone to just go on YouTube and look up one of those black face minstrel shows from the early nineteen hundreds it will literally take you about twenty to thirty seconds to see how they were. They basically painted people in the black community is idiots or clowns. And you know, that's up to me is utterly despicable. I don't I don't care. How old you were at the time. When you did it you knew better. Yeah. And you know, I don't really appreciate it. And we started off the week with this governor talking about I'm saying aside as well. So well, it isn't it? You know, I gotta say it was almost a week ago where the president in almost a chilling clinical way, describe what can only be called the murder of a young baby. And speaking of it as an act that he wants to legalize in the Commonwealth of Regina. Do you think there's something to that? Do you think that that possibly the the topic was changed radically in immediately? Because the pro abortion agenda was finally sort of put on display for all to see. I can tell you. I got quite a few phone calls tech messages and emails from people that are Democrats that were appalled by what the governor and delegate trend were intimating legislation that they were trying to push forward. You saw this weekend. Governor McAuliffe actually came out and called it a famous out as well. Office came out and said that he was missed represented misinterpreting something there was nothing to misinterpret about what he said what he was pushing for and trying to promote in Virginia. We're not New York. We're not going to just sit back and watch our Khandelwal to become a place where we're murdering babies now and listen Jeffrey dove junior is our guest. You ran recently in Virginia in a climate where Democrats seem emboldened now to just say off the tip of their tongue. Republicans in Virginia are racists. We saw the despicable way. Northbound ran against Ed Gillespie. We saw the campaign against Corey Stewart racist racist racist racist. It's really something to see them show their true colors here in this area. It's got to cut even deeper to you, sir. Well, you know, it's interesting. I was getting. Racist claims against me as well in debates, and whether it was surrogates talking we'll be half of congressman Conley. I was getting those same things and to me it was utterly ridiculous. And now for them after the stuff has come out about the governor the amount of time. It took them to go after him and say he should resign or, you know, go after it as a negative negative thing that happened. It's appalling to me as well. We don't have real leadership. They were waiting to see what the party told them to do before they could come out and actually say something about it. Very great point. That's right. Everyone eight they had to get their stories straight. They had to figure out their signals. And of course, we had Mark Warner and pretty much every democrat in Virginia say that north got to go. Now, they don't say the same thing about herring. And he for the basically the same reason, that's quite a double standard within the Democratic Party. Let alone the double standard against Republican, sir. What's shocking about that? Is that he. Attorney general herring. Call for the governor to reside. Then he comes out with his statement. Why didn't we find out about this stuff years and years ago? Leave the first running for office here that's come out a long time ago, and the people Virginia would have made their termination if we should have gone forward with a elected knees people listen from a I'm trying to be as nonpartisan aside. Listen, I I wear my politics on my sleeve, people know where I'm coming from. But I am sad for the people of Virginia at this point. Because you know, I've I've I've done some radio interviews across various cities across the country in the last couple of days, and they it's a joke. It's a punchline right now Virginia is I think that Virginians are looking for a couple of figures to emerge here. And Mr. w could be one of those people are you interested in sort of making some noise and finding a lane here because the state needs leadership, and I think the Republicans could fill a vacuum right now. We'll see how did we we have plenty of time for twenty twenty one rolls around. I'm out here really helping out of the house a delegate candidates with year across the board on meet I've been going out and helping various candidates really trying to make sure that we keep the majority in the house of delegates NSA Senate as well. So that's that's my right now. I gotta say do you have confidence in the Commonwealth Republican party right now who listen to last time a Republican won statewide was ten years ago in Virginia. Do you have confidence that the party can sort of put together the kind of messaging and the kind of strategy to actually take some sort of political advantage of this mess? I think so what I'm seeing what I'm saying. A lot of now is that people who were kind of on the fence about running for office since the events of the past week and a half or so they have been getting out more and actually deciding and declaring run for these seats, especially the one that I delegate is sitting in that that that's going to be a very interesting race. I think they'll be a lot of attention on that not just locally here. But nationally. You know, I think that this is motivated not just the base, but also people who are in the middle. Yeah. Yeah. Saying what what is going on? You know, seventy percent of the electorate is probably in the middle. And I don't think I think that a abortion push has actually moved people toward our side. Jeffrey dove junior junior more Rb combat veteran ran a really dignified and noble campaign in Virginia's eleventh congressional district, and it was a tough one. We knew going in because let's face it. They boy and the Democrats like the mob in that district Mr..

My opinion question that you post earlier Cui Bono. Yes. About this in Virginia. And it's my opinion that Marquette ring, the attorney general, but be that person who has the most to Kane. In Virginia the succession, if the governor is forced to resign next as Lieutenant governor he's coming with his own baggage. And then after him is he attorney general and herring has already declared that he's running for governor in twenty twenty one Virginia. This would get him a leg up. He would be an incumbent. He essentially have a seven year six and a half year term. And being the governor of Virginia is not like being the governor of New Mexico. They generally go on to bigger and better things. Right. For instance, Tim Kaine is a Senator Mark Warner. Former governor is also a Senator mccalla former governor. They don't want to flawed candidates in the governorship. Of virginia. And that's why I think that it's going to be Mark Aaron and more radical more left more. Then both of the other two combined that could be it could be. It's a good theory at C. Thank you for calling. We shall see. I think a lot lot more in the coming days. Let's go to line four, Shelley Newport Beach, California. You wanna return us to the topic of Margaret Sanger? So I had her on Hillary, and I just saw a clip. Can you can you can can you talk more? Yeah. You're you're very muffled. Shoot. Any better? That's a little better. Go ahead. Shut a little better. Okay. Well, I am. References. And Hillary, and I had just. Eight to see Hitler's America just. But it just said well Hillary was saying I'm very grateful for Sanger thought her work for many many sacrifices. Yeah. I think. That's a very bad line. But I think we got the point Hillary Clinton was inanimate of Margaret Sanger the racist. Eugenicist not only that Hillary Clinton is a recipient of the Margaret Sanger award, which tells you everything you need to know, they say they care about the little ones they say they care about the vulnerable ones. But the left as we have seen in the last week is fine.

"Mark. I'm sorry, sir. Playing. Album collection. Senator Mark Warner. Democrat has one word for America's longest running shutdown. Stupidity. The unprecedented shutdown fell into its thirty second day over President Trump's demand for border wall funding and Democrats refuse to give in. But while they remain no hint of a deal to reopen. The government Warner did today introduce these stupidity act to prevent hypothetical shutdowns in the future. Man. I'll tell you right now odd love to see the stupidity. Stupidity. Act come into play here. I mean, how often would they use that one? I asked. Yes, Senator you have the floor. I I vote the stupidity. It'd be like every week like almost every day. We have the stupidity act in place and the stupidity act would just simply consist of the Senator or congress person standing there with a mirror in front of their face for five minutes. Under the act the government would keep running even if legislators and the president failed to agree to a new funding Bill by shutdown deadline, it would simply preserve the precious fiscal years funding levels, but adjust them for inflation. It would not fund the legislative and executive branches though, effectively forcing congress and the White House to come to the negotiating table without hurting American jobs. As if you're wondering what stupidity means. I mean, if they implemented this stupidity act though, right? Right. I mean, you could understand it'd be like some of the rule changes in the NFL implement some of these things where you can just review every single thing. Pretty soon. Next thing, you know, games taking four and five hours referees, looking at these video monitors everything is a review because someone felt like was it's going to be the same thing with the stupidity act.

Asia stocks calm as China slows

"What's happening in financial markets as the Asian trading day gets rolling. Let's get it over to Bloomberg's Doug krizner. You were talking earlier about one of the components. I guess a foundational component for this optimism being optimism on U S China trade, given the fact that is Bloomberg news reported last week. The Chinese were making some kind of offer on a path to eliminate the trade deficit with the US. But now we're hearing that the US and China have made very little in the way of progress when it comes to the issue of IT, we are told Chinese officials have denied IP theft, and they have asked the US for proof. So in turn the US T R, the office of the trade Representative of told US lawmakers of the lack of progress on the issue of IP. This may have been one of the factors helping to take equities from session. Highs here in the early asiapac session. We also have negative South Korea neck port export data for the first twenty days of the month of decline of nine and a half. Half percent. If you look at semiconductors by themselves. Semiconductor exports in the first twenty days were down twenty eight point eight percent. The Korean one right now against the dollar weaker by four tenths of one percent. Let's look at the equity picture very quickly in Seoul, the kospi down two tenths of one percent, Sydney. Asx two hundred is better by two tenths of one percent. In tokyo. The Nikkei still holding onto a gain of about four tenths of one percent. We had been higher by about one percent earlier. But the yen has strengthened now against the dollar to one oh nine fifty five in that has helped to take some of the wind out of the sales of the Nikkei in Hong Kong hang sang up three tenths of one percents. Shanghai composite. Meantime, better by about three tenths of one percent. Now, we have a holiday in the states markets will be closed in observance of the Martin Luther King junior day. So as a result, no trading in US treasuries in the Tokyo session. The ten year was last quoted at a yield of two point seven eight percent. I'm Doug krizner at Bloomberg. Interactive brokers studio in. New York, Paul. All right. Thanks very much. Doug. Well, the second Trump Kim summit is expected to be held in Vietnam. Baxter's. Global news in the Bloomberg nine sixty San Francisco newsroom. Ed, exactly right, Paul. That's the word today from the Trump administration. Anyway, vice President Mike Pence on FOX saying the US goal to begin to make real the denuclearization. That can Jong on committed to the first word is location Hanoi. But that hasn't been firmed up. We're told denying hokey men city also appear to be in the running. He you nations are split and disagreeing over how long they think the UK could delay Brexit how some of them pushing for up to a year. Others want pressure applied to accept a deal as soon as possible it's up to the UK to ask for a delay. Something Prime Minister, Theresa may has adamantly said she will not do you k- trade secretary Liam Fox in the BBC says the message to the EU is that there is a real possibility of Brexit without a deal there watching my message stem is I hope you've understood from this program that new deal is a real possibility at least put the African. And may is preparing to set out where Brexit goes next in parliament tomorrow MP's are already preparing to take control of the process. She's had a call with her cabinet today. Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's heads for talks in Moscow this week. The hope is resolution of the seventy year old dispute over Pacific islands, but Russian rhetoric has turned strident as foreign minister Sergey Lavrov says Russia will not surrender any territory and is publicly offering a pointed reminder of Japan's World War to defeat. Japan's hope would be that this is just pre negotiation rhetoric. US house leadership is how the Trump announcement over the weekend of a compromise which would give some dreamers, DACA. Three years to stay in the US. They say, it's an odd started. But Republican James Langford says it is a very good approaching the presents put a reasonable compromise on the table. Everyone knew we're going to go through this process. We're gonna end up compromising on multiple different areas to be able to resolve it. But the core elements are there that we all strongly believe about. But democratic Senator Mark Warner says this announcement by the president could be a starting point. But the government has to be opened. I what we cannot do. And I've actually had Republicans as well recognizes is that we cannot reward the kind of behavior of hostage-taking because if the president can arbitrarily shut down now he will do it time and again warned her on NBC and the House Democratic whip James Clyburn on FOX says he has a path forward temporary protective status for all people sick in the come to this country and the Trump Tower Russia talks didn't end until November election year. That's a far later than has ever been admitted by the Trump administration personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and CNN saying yes, November. But I'm not I'm not at all concerned about that. He gave a full and complete answer to it. I can't share the whole thing with you. But I can't share the conclusion, which is he had conversations with Michael Cohen.

"This is Red Eye Radio. Gary mcnamara. I'm Eric Harley were sliding into a Wednesday, Gary how are you? I'm doing really good because got my w two yesterday and IRS agents on the same day to be called back from layoff. Great. We'll get to that coming up here in a little bit. Really interesting you, and I talked about this in our pre show meeting. You heard me saying? It was Senator Mark Warner's op Ed piece on Trump, and the how Trump should be negotiating. And he comes Senator Mark Warner is coming from the business standpoint. Because you said as a former governor and even before he was a former former governor and Senator he was a businessman and had to strike deals and Trump is not negotiating, right? And he will tell him to negotiate except for one thing. The first thing out of his mouth is wrong. Yeah. We'll get to that coming up here in just a little bit. If you're on the left might not want to accuse. A conservative man of white privilege. What was black? Gone that far probably not the thing to do. We'll get to that. A new US bound caravan. I was I was talking about this before the start of the show and everywhere, I read you this is about Theresa May, the prime minister of Great Britain to defeat in parliament. Yeah. Nobody has any idea. What's going to happen next? They've and I started thinking to myself compared to the United States if you're somebody who thinks the United States were so screwed up. We never been screwed up in two hundred and forty years. We've never been this screwed up before. Well, the motherland. I call it the motherland differ. Going back to the motherland is more screwed up. Just going through every single. Political financial international trade expert that I could find on the right and left basically is saying we have no idea what they do. We we don't know where to go from here. What the shutdown that we have here is minor compared to what's going on in Great Britain. Right. They're trying to separate themselves from the rest of the continent. They're not debating about spending. They're trying to separate themselves from continent. I think read so much the the one thing that really got me got me to laugh was I believe it was the wall. I'm doing this from memory believe was the Wall Street Journal editorial on it. Yeah. That that said, well, I mean, they they could do some things and one of the thought processes four parliament because now this is in the hands of parliament. They they've got to come up with something and one of the thought processes come up with another referendum with more questions for the people. How many times do they just gone back and forth and back and forth and back and forth. And back a second a second referendum to to to basically figure out what was in the first referendum. Yes. And. Sure. But what about that? Now, let's do another referendum to make sure that that referendum was good. Good luck. There's I don't know where I have no idea where they go. I mean may is done what that was an interesting. It's it's you know, may may be done, but not immediately because no they don't he's not gonna quit. And and they don't want to have the, you know, the the basically the vote of no confidence yet right and the head count on that right now favors her. But so right, but you go, but they still even if there was about veteran, no confidence. They don't even want to go down that route right now because it would just throw more chaos into a situation where it's I it's almost as if nobody said this. But it's almost as look we need a couple of days just cooling off period. Just a that's that's what I got from it. I think they're all out of bar right now or pub as it may be. Right now just sitting there. And so roughly what six o'clock in the morning. I heard there all night. I mean, I was just I was just. Almost obsessed with just reading different analysis of it. And after about I don't know maybe forty forty five minutes of reading all these different articles. Mike conclusion was wow, I'm just as knowledgeable in this is any of these people. They have no idea. What's going to happen? And and there's no way to know. And. You really if if you think about it, you don't have there's there's likely that that even if they did a vote of no confidence that it wouldn't get there. Okay. But it says if you just said imagine a did. Well, then you're introducing new players. Now, you have a totally different balance. Now, you have a totally because what what goes on from there. What happens from that point? Who was it? That's going to essentially shut down the Brexit or moving forward. I gotta tell you, man. It's a mess. I I mean, it's the the the shutdown in the United States. Is peanuts compared to the situation there. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And people say, can you believe this government ought to control the shut shutdowns nothing compared to what's going on over there? I mean, this is comparing a light bulb going out to a massive electrical fire. Because it's just the let's put it this way. Because you know, that, you know, the the the the disagreements that we have had with the administration the the agreements and disagreements because it's actually been a mixed bag when it comes to trade with you know, with the administration and the president it, right? But what's going on there, even with the negotiations in China, and and even take the steel and aluminum tariffs, and it's still not that we don't want a solution to it. But compared to the situation in Great Britain. It's nothing. I mean, it's just nothing this shutdown compared to what's going on over. There is nothing. They don't know as as you said the decision was we're splitting from the continent. In a way. Would you say it's close to seceding a states seceding? But being in limbo because they can't figure out how to do it. And because they're they're not again, it's not it's. It's not totally comparing apples to oranges because you did have a legal tie-in. And you know with with the the European Union. Right. So you had a legal tie in there. And it isn't the same. But it's because you're you're no state's going to secede from the union. That's not going to happen. Right. Okay. There's a that. It's not it can't it will not happen. But it's the same kind of angle mess. It would be. Yes. And that's what you know when you and I talked about California, just hypothetically, if they were going to succeed everything that they would have to go through for example, is as we talked about they would have to take their port. You know, they would have to take their portion of the debt they would have to the federal government would either have to sell the federal land, which is significant in California back to California. How would you have that type of negotiating process? There's so much that you would have to do now. And this isn't this probably isn't one one hundred this complicated as that and still it's complete mess. And they they have no idea where they're going. Right now. It's it really is pretty fascinating. When you look at it. Yeah. I I we we've talked about all the mess, and the you know, the the untangling. If if there if it were to happen, if there were a state that ever move to secede, which isn't going to happen. But we talked about the theoretical part of it. I said it I think it would make a great television series. Because well because you would you would talk about like in the series. You would have one maybe two states that are leaving the country, and then what it would actually entail. Well. That's. Leaving the European Union. I dare say isn't nearly as complicated. Right. What we would have here with the states seceding. They might differ today. Well today, it isn't. They can differ if they want, but they're drunk. So it is, but it's the same kind of complication. Yeah. You have a lot of not only moving parts you have governing bodies bodies. And you have a Representative is essentially and parliament and the prime minister. Whole different things in. It reminds me of of the two thousand sixteen promise, you know, we're going to get rid of ObamaCare and then in twenty seventeen uh. Okay. Well, we really don't want to get rid of ObamaCare. We're just gonna get rid of the part where we have to pay a penalty. We don't buy it and some taxes and. Yeah. And so you you basically had this big move based on emotion, by the way. The emotion comes from something. Real people not wanting to be governed by other people that can't be held accountable. Right. Right, and eggs immigration and everything by the way, and that applies to ObamaCare. Yes. I wanna be I don't want. I don't want an unelected bureaucrats somehow be controlling my healthcare. And it's the same thing with Brexit. If you look at it, right that that is we don't want unelected bureaucrats are we don't want our country to make a deal that says ten years down the road. We don't get to vote on something. And the the people who run the e u the bureaucrats who aren't elected bias and not, you know, even are not our elected representatives thing get to make decisions for our country sort of the same thing on a bigger level. Right. Macro and micro. Right. Right. And and that's you know, that that I can't imagine where this thing winds up because if you walked into a pub and shouted in Great Britain right now and shouted Brexit. You either Mike.

"It's Red Eye Radio. Gary McNamara eight six six ninety red. I wanted to get to this here because this was op Ed piece by Senator Mark Warner. Okay. The suggests so bogus up. Here's how you make a deal. Mr President re advice from one businessman turned politician to another. Okay. This is a democrat Senator Mark Warner in the Wall Street Journal. Yes, Donald Trump ran for president telling the story of business prowess, the author of the art of the deal would come to Washington and solve the problems that politicians could two years later, the longest government shutdown record is revealing gaping holes in his facade like the president. I've spent more time in business and in politics and goes on to talk about twenty years in executive investor did very well. As a governor. And a Senator I relied on my business experience to get things done every day the shutdown drags on. It becomes clear the president never learned lessons. If successful executives know by heart. Right. Here's his first one. And here's where you can stop. You don't need to go any further in the op-ed peaks. Always try to find a solution in which both sides come out ahead. Mr. Trump has refused to compromise or negotiate. Sorry. You just lost me. Just lost you right there. All your credibility has gone because that's absolutely false. Lately. False. I would say Senator Warner one of the first things in business is the first point that you make when you talk about negotiating should not be ally. Right. Well, the president has has opened up a number of possibilities. First of all we need to point out that right now, he's not even asking for twenty five billion, right? You and I pointed that out how many times version was twenty five billion us asking for five that's negotiating tactic. He's not asking for everything. Right. And by the way. What is what would be the compromise here?.

Thanks to a president elected. We all remember with Russia's help. And now is the nation confronts. A very real possibility American president is working for whatever reason to advance Russian interests. We get news. The president has been pushing one of Putin's top priorities behind the scenes after the revelations at the FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation into whether the president has been working on Russia's behalf. And that the president is. Taking steps to conceal his talks with Putin from his own advisers, including confiscating interpreters notes, New York Times now reports the president has told aides he wants to pull the US out of NATO and not just once he said to have brought it up over and over again throughout the last year. According to the times members of the president's national security team, including Defense Secretary Jim Mattis managed to hold the president off. But since then Mattis resigned in protest specifically citing his commitment to US allies and their efforts to counter Russia in his public resignation letter on our show last night.

He held when the F B I opened its investigation into the sitting president knowing what he knew then and knowing what we've all learned over the last few days. This was Louth men's reaction. I think there's a combination of things we can point to in the public record now. The unbelievable acquiesce to Putin and Helsinki. That was positively shocking to those of us who have worked in nationals carry all of our lives, all the.
