Apple Daily Increases Print Run as Hong Kongers Queue to Buy Paper
"We must press on, said the chief of Apple Daily newspaper as he was arrested. At the end of last week, the journalists on the best known pro democracy paper in Hong Kong carried on producing and writing. They also sold hundreds of thousands of copies. Some Hong Kong has elected to show their support by buying 10 at once and then just giving them away. But for how much longer Last week's actions by the Hong Kong authorities are making it very difficult for the newspaper to carry on to remind you, its owner, Jimmy Lai, is in jail, serving a sentence for unauthorized assembly and senior staff at the paper are being held at the moment, it's feared the paper may not survive for long, like a matter of days. Mark Simon is an adviser of the owner Jimmy Lai. The government has frozen the access to the bank accounts. They've frozen any interaction with the bank account, so they and they've informed Hong Kong banks not to deal with Apple daily. So basically the situation is the company is up, unable to operate its bank accounts, and that's basically that's as bad as it gets. But I mean, you're a large company, 600 employees and so on What's on the agenda for the board meeting, then right now that sounds like the agenda for the board meeting is going to be basically how to work to get the accounts on frozen and then what's the progress there? But it's not really a decision that I think Apple Daily is making. It's not really a decision that's on our side. That's really the decision on the government side at the Security Department wants to open, let The paper operate. That's fine with them. That's fine with us. If not, there's nothing we can do you It's they've cut off every every vehicle and every venue for us, they say if they don't if they don't unfreeze the bank accounts can you carry on operating? I don't think I don't see how nobody can carry on operating without financial, you know activity. In other words, if you can't conduct your business, how do you carry on operating? Uh, it's illegal action. It's illegal, also in Hong Kong. In other words, you can't contract for services or tell employees to work without the ability to

So you might have to cut me off here I am currently the chief revenue officer very silicon valley like term for a a data company called h. g. data. I live in the san francisco bay area. And i come down to beautiful santa barbara For a couple of days a week which is where we're located and as far as being in sales. What's what's you specialty in. Well there there. Two things that i that i spent with their two type of companies that i've spent most of my career with here for the last decade more turnaround situations where i've been brought into tech companies. That have stalled. Started to flail little bit and on the guy that Gets out the shock. shock pads and tries to rejuvenate an entity. And those are those are fun when when you can do them well and then i've also recently gotten a bit addicted to pre revenue tech startups. These are two or three guys sitting in a basement with a whiteboard. They often don't even have product built yet. They've got an idea they want to disrupt the market. And i'm brought in as the go to market guy like let's figure out what we can monetize how to do it. And then let's get after it get some revenue in the door go gets around funding and then hopefully get it to to be erected or see. Let's let's start with the turnaround. Because that's kind of what i've been dragged into for the last five years. What's your approach on the turnaround. So you going into a place there. Stalled at I don't know what your space made. Five ten million dollars. The investors are anxious. They can't raise another round. What's your approach. Well i think there's there's two frames that i typically look at in one one. I usually do pre engagement to to determine if i'm going to get get involved. Which is what's the external market conditions. you know. I have been lucky enough to work in spaces that are growing so that is just tech in general but more specifically the last couple of years has been serum extended. I did do a stint in healthcare it. That was tacked. But i probably miss read. What's happening with healthcare from the outside. That looks very appealing but internally not so much so the first is the external environment is this arena where entrenched players are have gotten a little bit lazy and buying cycles are such that that new entrance can break in in make a difference so that's the external environment and based on what i've said i've generally focused on environments where i think that they are right once in turtle is often find that that it's just business one one stuff and i have been around long enough you know. I got out of college in ninety one. Next week is my forty th birthday and so i've i've seen business cycles and i been in the bay area over over twenty years so i certainly have seen hype curbs in bubbles and bus and i think that has allowed me to go in and call. I don't know if i if i gave you the longer. Version that if you if you'd have to bleep it. Pc see i've seen when folks are deluding themselves when companies are deluding themselves on either their product market fit or their go to market strategy or the original vision their differentiation of strategy disagreements between senior staff or investors board and staff and usually between those those bullets i just listed. There's two or three major disconnects that when you're living and breathing a startup you just lose perspective and by being the new guy on the block. I can actually call out those things relatively quickly. I'm also an east coast guy so even been california now since ninety three. I tend to be very frank and direct And i think that that candidness allows people to to call out the elephant in the room. That people have been avoiding for some time. I don't know if
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki holds a briefing
"Journal this morning, we brought you I've covered to the White House briefing with press secretary Jen Psaki. Early morning briefing. We'll see how this goes here. Give feedback on the time of day. Okay? Um, have several announcements for you today to begin. I know many of you and the American people are interested in the news coming from Johnson and Johnson's trial data. The president is encouraged by positive data on a potential new vaccine. He also knows that this is just new data and now is the time for the FDA to do its job of evaluating the safety and efficacy of the vaccine and the meantime, he continues to urge all Americans to mask up and follow public health guidelines until it's their turn to get vaccinated. Now I know there may be a lot of questions you have for us about the trial data, or Johnson and Johnson. I'm here to tell you that I'm not going to get ahead of the experts who you will all get to hear from in the next hour and our public health briefing from the covert response team, they will discuss this more with you and what everything means. Then at Wednesday's briefing, I also shared some of the engagement and outreach the White House is doing to move forward The American rescue plan. From the president, the vice president on down that work has continued and accelerated. Yesterday, senior staff spoke again to governors about the challenges they're facing and the importance of relief today, National Economic Council deputy director David came in will meet with the Council of State Governments. The Office of Public Engagement will also breathe black civic groups. Anti hunger and nutrition advocates and keep progressive groups and invite their feedback. These conversations are, of course, critical to building support and moving the president's bill forward, according But we also saw evidence this week that the American people overwhelmingly want their elected leaders to work with the president to confront the pandemic and get on and put people back to work. According to a moment poll released Wednesday. 71% of the American people want Republicans in Congress to work with pride. Isn't Biden. That number's up nearly 10 points from right after the election meeting. The trend of support for working in a bipartisan manner with the president is only growing. Finally, the president is committed to getting relief to working families. Hence, he is also meeting this morning with his economic members of his economic team with Vice the vice president and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen. For a briefing on the cost of inaction and the impact of a delay and moving forward with a relief package Moat. Millions of Americans don't have enough food to eat, and millions more have lost their jobs. But interest rates are at historic lows, and that means it's the right time to make smart investments. Moody's of Wall Street Firm has said that we could end up with four million fewer jobs this year if we don't act on the president's plan. That's four million Americans who could would who could get back to work? I'm sure they will discuss all of that at their briefing later this morning. Last thing we are venturing to provide a week ahead to all of you are returned to providing week ahead. It's all of you. S O. Ah, quick preview next Monday, the president will meet with the secretary of state at the State Department. On Tuesday, President Biden will deliver remarks and sign an executive order.

As we could with without sequence to kick us off. Um one for about one going with violence serving in Afghanistan is the president still committed to wind down operations? They're bringing troops home this year. The president I have not spoken with our national security team about this in particular, but his commitment remains at the top. You mentioned that American should follow public health guys. What challenges is it has been over the course of lot of months is that public health guys? State. Very substance have masked bandits. Others have endured dining open. Others have schools open. Others don't know what God is. Should the American people follow their governor's got it socially follow the president's well first. What we're venturing to do is provide more concrete guidance from the federal government from the CDC from health and medical experts on Important steps. All of the American people can take to keep themselves safe. That includes the importance of mask wearing, of course, and how how vital that is to keeping us safe. It also includes the importance of hand washing of restricting travel these air all guidelines that have come in recent days on weeks, I should say from the president of United States and from our Medical and health experts. But in addition as we discussed yesterday, there are guidelines, including the safe for for the state for opening of schools that he signed an executive order on directing both the Department of Education on HHS and sit in the end the CDC I should say, I'm sorry to produce those guidelines to give more specific advice and And markers to states and local school district's on what they should follow. So it will ultimately be up to states to governors to local school districts and others to make determinations. But we do want to provide more clear guidance from the federal government based on the expertise that health and medical experts on what people should follow on what will help keep the American people safe.

Fauci says to give COVID-19 vaccine to Biden, Harris, Trump, Pence
"He's 78 years old. He says he doesn't want to skip to the front of the vaccine line. But Willie and should he is the incoming president. How does this work? Well, it sort of depends on what we think of as skipping the head of the line, because, uh, if you were the president elect of the United States, there's a pretty short line in front of you. No matter what, Um Because there are seriously issues of continuity of government and I don't even think it was Inappropriate for the Trump administration, though they've since reversed it to say we should get vaccinated look continuity of government matters. Now, this trump White House could have taken much more precautions much more seriously, internally and externally and had fewer cases of coronavirus. True. Still for the maintenance and the effectiveness of government. I think the White House currently the incoming biting transition team, and every senior person on that should get back to making earlier rather than later. Because it matters that they're available and there to do the job at the highest levels of the American government, So I don't think it's a political matter. That should be one that is pointed at the Trump White House or the incoming Biden White House. I do think it's just a matter of Do we want people at the top of our government to be the healthiest they can be to handle this situation? I think the answer universally is yes. So Is there a line that super long in front of the President elect? No, there isn't so moving to the front of that. If you will doesn't seem to me to be a political issue, it seems ah good governance issue. I agree with you. Let me ask you about the line. Where do we draw the line? The vice president, members of Congress staff who helped them the Supreme Court. Local legislators. Where should the line be? It's an interesting and very valid question. Because look not everyone is equal. I would I would say this. I mean, this is this is a great question. I'm giving you the top of my head answer, clad, not burrow down. I don't know if there's any legal definitions that have to be dealt with, But I would say President, vice president and all senior staff Would say, every governor in every state of the union I would say the speaker of the house and the leadership in Congress and then You know, hold off a little bit, but Hold off for how much longer look Um Congress and state legislatures have equities and responsibilities. But are they Maurin important than Frontline? Health care workers? No. Are they more important than protecting those who have been? Most seriously affected and we're death rates proportionately have been very high nursing homes. No, so I think you get those populations first, and then you move to the upper echelons.

been able to do the private sector what they how they got it done this is a five to fifteen minute test as an example the Abbott laboratories that these tests are highly sophisticated a very quick very good this is things that didn't even exist a short while ago so we do have a great testing capability at the White House were doing it and I think generally speaking we had a call with the governors the other day generally speaking without exception they were all extremely happy with what's going on with respect to their testing president Donald Trump in the White House rose garden this was his first regular news conference in about two weeks but it did end abruptly he hold on a couple of reporters one reporter stepped up and said you called on me the president disagreed went back and forth a bit and the president ended the news conference we covered it live on C. span radio on C. span television we have the video at C. span dot org and now to Capitol Hill with the Senate is in session the house not yet officially back the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell laid out the agenda for the week which includes nominations and an anti terrorism bill are committed to working or you're on the floor will start this week by confirming two more qualified nomination portent post they should not remain empty at this time we'll begin a broader coverage options nine about president trump to serve as deputy secretary of housing and urban development then we'll turn to Troy Edgar California company chief financial officer at the department of homeland security now the front runner status from my distinguished democratic colleagues complain that the full Senate should not have to spend more time on these sorts of uncontroversial executive branch nominees I agree I agree but as long as their own democratic leadership continues to hold important posts empty for as long as possible in order despite the White House as long as the minority continues to break from longstanding Senate president to obstruct even the least controversial nominations Democrats will have to continue to show up to vote on the flotation a dislike of the direct result of their own doctors we're also going to take up important legislation this week **** overnight train rightly dominates headlines around the world United States of America also faces many serious threats before us right before this virus began to spread and they're still with us today so later this week will turn back toward reauthorizing important authorities under the foreign intelligence surveillance act this is urgent because the house refused to take up the Senate short term extension of important counterterrorism and counterintelligence authorities before they left town house Democrats let the tools expire so we must act quickly to clean up the mess and renews the Tories which our government needs to fight terrorist instructed agents of China and Russia the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell he was followed by the minority leader Chuck Schumer and like Chuck Schumer did last week today questioned why there was no corona virus a build schedule for debate and vote this week here on the Senate floor for the second week in a row we are living in the alternative reality of the Republican leader McConnell's making he is scheduled no legislative business here on the floor related to covert nineteen nine no measures for the unemployed no relief for renters are homeowners no legislation to increase testing capacity no proposals to help state and local governments retain teachers and firefighters bus drivers and police officers looking at the Senate calendar you never know that were working in the midst of a national crisis it looks like any other session a few executive nominations hearings on right wing judges legislation from previous months that the leader should not have delayed it's just totally totally divorced from reality the Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer Majority Leader McConnell pointed out that there are several corona virus related Senate oversight hearings this week on topics that include financial regulations and state of broadband the hearing that will likely get the most attention is Tuesday with a key member of the White House coronavirus task force here's more on this from senator Schumer now tomorrow in the help committee there will be a hearing conducted remotely with doctor Falchuk this is the kind of hearing we need not once a week but several a day the American people need to hear from experts in a fair open and truthful setting until now we've mostly heard from the members of the corona virus task force through the distorted lens of the White House press conference with the president often prevents them from answering fully interrupts their response or even contradicts their fact based advice this will be one of the first opportunities for doctor found cheap to tell the American people the unvarnished truth without the president lurking over his shoulder doctor felt she let it rip but it shouldn't be this one committee hearing tomorrow and it shouldn't be doctor found she alone testifying or even with the two is testifying with this is the routine oversight business of Congress and now we're now in a crisis it should occur in every committee every week Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer on the Senate floor house Democrats are getting ready to unveil their bill for next round of coronavirus economic relief and joining us now with more is Sarah Ferris congressional reporter with politico what do we know about what might be in this bill and when it'll be released so and the Democrats have been working to assemble this bill which is expected to cost multi trillion dollars and what we know is that this is gonna be a really bold ambitious plans and there's talk about having money in there for mail in voting there's talk about having money in there for hazard pay for front line workers we know for sure that there will be a lot of money for state and local governments that are on the brink of cutting services and a lot of places because they simply aren't seeing the revenues and payroll taxes and all got all of that sort of thing coming in so there are these governments are basically going broke Democrats have said they want to put one trillion dollars towards both state and local probably split up between state and then that the municipalities to ensure the money does trickle all the way down so there's a lot of things that they've been pushing for many of them they've been trying to get into previous bills but Republicans have simply dismiss those on there saying that Democrats want to put down their own marker they don't want to be forced to agree to what Republicans want they're hoping that they put the coldest possible plan out there they want to show the American people how much money they're willing to spend how much they're willing to invest in the recovery and they're hoping that Republicans will be feeling the pressure from their constituents who agree with them on on a really bold cost of response what's the timing on this when we'll see the bill and when the house may vote on no it's it's really amazing to think how quickly they have written to spell it's been in the works for a couple of weeks are the speaker and her committee chairs really got down to business last week trying to winnow down and that the final ideas deciding what exactly is gonna make them to the bill they had initially hoped to get that done by Friday that timeline slipped there was a lot of weekend work now we're we're hearing that the the speaker will be releasing that plan sometime on Tuesday Shelby's briefing heard hawkish on some of the details a leader on Monday and so we may hear a little bit more about exactly what much might be in that plan but but so far we did to speaker has been reiterating you know there will be a lot of money in there for state local governments four she said there will be mail in voting she said there will be early for front line workers there will be safety net programs like food assistance there will be a lot of money for testing in contact tracing so we do know a lot of the tenants of this plan already it's just a question of how big will be exactly and whether the full democratic caucus will be able to unite behind it which I expect they will be we're speaking with Sarah Ferris of politico as you mentioned in this a lot of reporting describing this bill as a wish list and that he will likely not become law because the Senate mean not taken up the president wouldn't sign it so when the house passes this what happens next that's a good question we don't know the members themselves still now the biggest is that the reason that that house Democrats are doing this of course is because they haven't been able to lay down a marker of what exactly they want they haven't been able to be the ones to to have the opening bid to Republicans and bigger policy and her pockets which are getting a really rest if they want to be able to show the American people that they're committed to working quickly and urgently even as they remain home bound because it's not safe to return to the capital yet for the house so there's a lot of Democrats out there who just want to go very bold in this opening offer of basically the extracts that after this this bill comes out the house will vote on it they'll be able to then use that as a launch pad to start discussions with Republicans but they want to sell the American people first what they want to do not what they could do with Republicans said yes and those are the three bills that we've seen so far so this is gonna be a really important as I said I'm a marker for the house Democrats but it will not become law as as we see it come out on Tuesday and you mention home bound want to ask you you've been doing this now for a.

"Back to the show retired general Arnold can narrow our server the marines on active duty in the reserves and served as a senior staff member in the U. S. Senate this man knows our nation welcome back to the show Arnold thank you great to be here all right give us a quick review of your time in the marines and in the Senate what do you mean I was a class of nineteen sixty eight in college which was the peak year of the draft but I volunteered for the marines to be an infantry officer served as an infantry platoon commander in in Vietnam with some great draftees that were in my outfit Sir my four years of active duty as required and then went back to graduate school and ended up working in the United States Senate international security fee and spent twenty four years including fourteen years running the Senate armed services committee which is responsible for all the defense intelligence legislation and then after that went into the private sector in the profit loss side not in the lobby inside like many of my colleagues and that's where I've kind of been ever since well it least you're not bored you're staying busy that's that's important that is okay our topic for today is what our defense department is doing vis a vis the CD nineteen both in terms of impact on readiness which is huge but more importantly everything else they're doing nationwide our department defense is got to be almost overwhelmed in dealing with this can use dark by talking about the impact on readiness that will go to the other stuff will be me as you well know is your listeners well know the department of finance is a highest priority defending the homeland when the last man made or natural disasters and of course we're facing unprecedented situation where governments and the American people are incapacitated nationwide and our partner the fence is right in the middle of it the other thing I'd like to point out first is in this won't surprise you or any of your listeners all across the country our veterans have responded magnificently when our department of finance said we need some volunteers to come back on active duty they were overwhelmed with the tens of thousands of people that responded when local areas said we need retired military medical people to come help out these more people coming back on active duty they showed up in a bun it's there running food banks they're working in the hospitals there are helping test people so our veterans are have responded just like our part of the fence in terms of readiness Danny which is your correct I think our secretary of defense on our chairman of the joint chiefs Martin Kelly would say look we're ready we can deal with any contingency that comes up but we're not able to do some of the things that we could have done before they're not putting people through some of the major training where rations obviously they have to work within social distancing they're not basically be able to do some of the formations and classes that they would have done previously but in terms of being able to respond either overseas or at home I think our leadership would say and I would agree with them they're ready so it is going to have any impact once it's over and we opened soon they will start to get back up to speed on the areas that we're the readiness is not where they would want to be right now over what makes sense you know you do have to continue to keep your skills up but if you've been keeping him up for quite a while you could have a couple three month break and not lose much and it'll come back fast and I'm sure they're focused on doing that but when you click on all the different areas of readiness from golden fur trim like you and I were to space command the the electronic warfare and all that kind of stuff there's a lot of areas that we've got to stay up to speed on I guess most of them are at least somewhat hamstrung now yeah I mean I think I think you we is we see just in our day to day lives and we see in our government institutions we see our private sector institutions CD nineteen has a dramatic impact I mean you just can't do things like you used to I mean they're not breaking new recruits in the way they used to bring a man they can't run some of their programs away they ran it but just in our daily lives just getting things done when you're sheltering in place it's just takes more time to decide as a patient and some days you just lack can't do I would say that when you look at what the department is doing here in the US right now we have over forty thousand members of the National Guard and reserve called up in working cross the board helping as well as active duty troops so main army and air guard or running over a hundred test sites and twenty five alternate sites you're doing screening they're doing warehousing they're delivering food they're delivering medical supplies the army corps of engineers has over fifteen thousand people engage they built twenty two field hospitals in eighteen states you know when they invade basically do it in a very rapid fashion and they're continuing to respond I hate to say it but you know we've got our mortuary affairs reserve and guard units that are on tap if they need if there's traffic control and transportation obviously I've been a part of the fence just spending a tremendous amount of money buying increasing production of the mask the ventilators the personal protection equipment in all things like that so I mean it's a it's an all in all hands on deck and as you would expect our apartment the fences is doing exactly what the American people would hope and expect of them they're responding and responding quickly and responding with overwhelming force over wow this is going to go in front of freedom we're discussing our Pentagon response to the coronavirus with general Arnold tomorrow so the Pentagon is doing well we hope they do they were surprised if we were I'm sure they don't have crystal balls at work that well but they're stepping up to it keep an eye on reading this but helping out in areas where who would ever think that we would need our military to build hospitals how do you be prepared for something like that well the good news is I mean Danny I had the privilege when I was a colonel of commanding a field hospital in the former Yugoslavia under operation provide promising we were we were I was running a field hospital the troops that were in Sarajevo in Macedonia and I mean this is what the department defense does I mean we're in combat operations maybe it was it was always a chance we can do everything from there surgery and heart surgery to taking care of a common cold it was all operated off the big diesel generators but I mean our military has these capabilities that we need overseas and they are just as good civil support we're pretty familiar with our military helping out hurricane I'm fires but I mean they can bring to bear this tremendous logistics capability this tremendous transportation capability the two hospital ships so things that we would use in the military for overseas contingencies are just as apple crumble here at home now the military is going to have to think about what does it mean what is a pandemic mean for the future in terms of the operational impacts on deployed troops own troops at home how we train how we fight and things of that nature so it's the same time they're responding quickly on a day to day basis here at home they're taking the deep thoughts about the future and you know it's gonna take a while to come up with those answers just like it's going to take awhile for our country think about how we operate in a post CD nineteen environment we operate restaurants how do we operate you know grocery stores and things of that nature you're right and there's a lot more discuss about this and Jennifer are is going to stay with us this is curriculum from much freedom troops is push up time I want you to do a hundred three push ups Germany I do everyday let's take a break but stay.

"In on the senior staff of the Nash could councils under both presidents Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon until resigning with Anthony like over the invasion of Cambodia you have to combine them the potential for the deep pockets of the Kremlin to manipulate the next election in their side the warriors altering the results if they have to you have to combine that showing the with the domestic spending we mention that rental citizens United decision that's allowed foreign players to meddle in our elections because it's all money driven and they've using these vehicles go five oh one C. four was supposedly social welfare vehicles but they allow the anonymity of the diner and nobody knows exactly what amounts of money are involved so those vehicles are also being used domestically clearly and if you think that a lot of money was spent in twenty sixteen you ain't seen nothing yet until we see the money's gonna pouring in twenty twenty and if for example Elizabeth Warren on Bernie Sanders stand up the democratic nominee the insurance companies will spend whatever it takes to defeat them so yes it's a little late this is going to be held at the health insurance I I I I think there's no question it and not only do you have a you have this this combined threat unprecedented in terms of a foreign adversary with the purposes of really of the on undermining if not destroying the system and you've got unprecedented force and power as you're describing the domestic beneficiaries of of the trump for years that this is not this is not necessarily again in anticipation of good fortune and the Russians didn't imagine they were going to have the success that they had in twenty sixteen I don't think that the right or or the old guard he in the United States anticipated that that he would have all of the bonuses and all of the advantages of that it's enjoying under Donald Trump and I think they were some of them were quite apprehensive about how unstable years them and the pathological danger of course with what's on all sides but there it is it's going to be an unprecedented force and the Democrats who ought to be at this point inspired and provoke and and fearful as never before are of course divided and driven by their own ambitions and all the rest opening away at every turn instead of uniting around a pragmatic candidacy that can really decisively defeat Donald Trump you when I talk about this again Ian over the months years from now that of the trump administration this must be something more than just a close win for the Democrats to eliminate all of the dangers that people are talking about that catastrophic constitutional crisis that could could emerge this is got to be a blow out got to be something beyond manipulation and that can old we come in in the kind of landslide victory but I think it's still possible even with all of the money even with the interference and all the rest but it requires a kind of unified in effect he's an intelligent and shrewd and as necessary ruthless democratic campaign and they're just no where near that we've got we've got a bumbling group of and the the ambitious goal in the ambitious young an absolutely lethal combination well if it's a case of the twenty or so on on these turn to bite nights if that's it and again even if it gets to the Phil gets winnowed to my mind the you know it's none of the above I don't I don't if you look at the track record of democratic presidents going back to the in the post war period starting with Harry Truman he was a centrist so was Jack Kennedy said was LBJ so with Jimmy Carter so is Bill Clinton and so was the Bronco bomber and they they're the only Democrats have been elected president yes so vice president Biden seems to have lost his manager I don't I don't is going anywhere one of them the same lack of you know a pretty good centrist candidate is the governor of Montana he I think he couldn't even get on the last debate she may be on the next debate pretty so far back he doesn't have a prayer it seems to me the obvious strategy would be to let Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders get all the all of the constituency young particular educate them about the virtues of social democracy there is absolutely nothing wrong with what they're doing but I don't think they can close the deal you know and well I it's it's it's it's this extraordinary failure he in the Democratic Party and and it goes back of course to did Jimmy Carter to the sixties and seventies this failure to carry its message to the American people I mean they ceded the ideological and political grounds to this empty vacant really quite a record Eckel conservatism which took the field under Ronald Reagan and which is good so dominated at every level when we were talking before about that but the local level it in American politics this failure to to impart and Elizabeth Warren is not is it is No Way radical social reformer as she does it represent in a number of ways her policy proposals very much that centrist tradition you're talking about and she has allowed herself to be portrayed as a as a left wing radical and of course the insurance companies will fight for their problems and their preservation of course the powerful will seek to keep their power and the and the with the with the resources they afforded by having a power to begin with I mean this is also sits L. mobile politics and I'm I'm astounded at they they're not even Hey I'm astounded at the the failure to grasp this in the in in the democratic leadership I'm astounded at again the of the willingness to pursue personal ambition and personal agendas and in that sense in a way the twenty eighteen can our selection was a was a deceptive perhaps tragically deceptive misreading of the American electorate yes it was an anti trump voting yes it did elected these random random radicals in districts that are that are very far from from generally representative of American politics but it says if you have a major political party in this case a governing the house of representatives that just doesn't really quite understand the country that it exists and and not that the Republicans represent the majority they don't but they have made the most of their minority in a way I think that that no other no other party act quite has in in western democracy I think they're they're a unique unique creature in western liberalism exactly they play an extraordinary hand to get everyone out to vote and they suppress the vote to the other side extraordinarily and they you know I did and they seem to be one step ahead they did it and it isn't it isn't just money announcer and now you've sold they've sold of falls a false god of false religion of false political ideology very very effectively and you've still got much imports much of the country is just plain alienated and angry you've got a when I got it understate from freedom here and Eric from America in the in in these early years of the twenty first century but again the Democrats don't begin does seem to begin to understand in in sociological terms are and intellectual cultural terms it is a front electorate in search of an answer and of course the Republicans are only faking they're the real fake news and the Democrats just seem to be wallowing in their own their own incompetence well is he in a in a way you might make a case for bringing back the old smoke filled back room and Democratic Party the party bosses if there was some discipline in the democratic prodding they want a bunch of freelances Hillary Clinton who would bring given the win in two thousand and night she was serve two terms and Barack Obama would be president today but that's not how the system works I mean it's just amazing and now they got these twenty odd people just stepping out of a sound that that the back benches and making all kinds of noise look at me look at me like middle school kids in the back room with their hands up it's just beyond belief let me just we were in the last few minutes here I wanted to also touch about of course today you have the bail hearings of four amps dean not surprisingly because he's such a lie some character instead horrible that he was denied bail and he will be in jail for some time and probably cents to forty five years unless he cops a plea and then exposes everybody and I'm sure that's why a lot of people are incredibly nervous but let's talk a little bit about some of the in back to the Russian story and your Russian contacts in my Russian counting some is saying that abstain was an asset of the FSB the Russian intelligence because he was a gold mine of calm from Matt there are other stories coming out because of his association with Israel and with our R. A. had Barack and former labor leader prime minister what happened though when the Miami Herald broke their stories about the dreadful deal that Acosta had made a cost to had to have a press conference to justify himself and in this press conference he said I was told that abstain belong to intelligence and to leave it alone who do you think he was working for I mean if if indeed it's true the right tions the Israelis who I I think that kind of remark and you know I think a Costa a Costa needs to be credited despite his is the very thing the record but I think you need to be credited on some of these things I think that they have seen was a was a Mossad asset and I think that relationship is undeniable whatever the circumstance it again is an FS beads in light of current one to light because of the chaos here and someone said to me the other day my god how awful it's the it's the great crisis of the of American history that you've got a head of files in the White House as well as a a circle will kind of help and and corrupts and all the rest and I said no you mean that's is that worse than than that the planet frying in the fry pan of the global warming I mean we're just we're we're facing all we you and I are talking here in doomsday terms union I mean there the effects of all of the S. of the of the Russian intervention the effects of another trump term or more the effects all on both political parties and on the political culture just absolutely calamitous and it's not going to be a breeze it's going to be longer term it will be it will be an agony of decline as these things usually are and I I I one can only hope that there is a resilience and in energy and then help rage a moral core in the American political system we haven't seen much of that in our lifetime but that there is some remnant last that we can we can call upon in twenty twenty and my grandmother used to say that god looks after drunks in the United States of America I devoutly hoped that she was right but we're we're going to need we're gonna need the equivalent of divining mention here to to deal with all the things that we've been talking about which I'm afraid are all too real well into the hope would be that the Democrats get focused on what the real challenges are and I think they are about in a hot how can you have the election twenty twenty when we note that align foreign powers gained in a fair let's start dealing with that let's start dealing shame that Republicans in doing something I mean we know that they're not doing anything because they're going to be the beneficiaries of it well I'm I'm really quite hopeful that that there is that the one going out you talked about happens a lot quicker and in more decisively in the in the very early parts of this primary schedule which is which is much more heavily stacked toward the front and it has been before and the emergence of a clear nominee the emergence of a Elizabeth Warren or someone with the kind of a sense of.

Chris Demeo, Fox News. The clock is ticking toward another government shutdown while the details are still being worked out. There is a lot of optimism that they will be able to ultimately come up with a deal. The question here, though, is is that going to be something President Trump can sign off on the big reason for that is because we're told the agreement will only include between one point three and one point six billion dollars in funding for border security that is a far cry from the five point seven billion dollars.

"I'm Jake tapper in Washington where the state of our union is incomplete dysfunction. We are now in the sixteen th day of the government shutdown over the president's border wall with no suggestion of any progress being made today, President Trump will travel to Camp David where he will meet with senior staff before meeting with congressional staff on the shutdown are expected to continue on Saturday. Vice President Mike Pence and senior members of the president's team met with congressional staff for negotiations with the president later said quote, not much headway was made the impasse comes as president. Trump is now dealing with a new political reality Thursday Democrats assumed control of the house Nancy Pelosi took the speaker's gavel this week Democrats plan on pushing legislation to fund individual parts of the federal government to attempt to pressure Republicans in congress and the White House. Joining me now acting White House chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney. Thanks so much. Joining us really appreciate it happened to be here. So where we are in negotiations. The meeting is over, and I know that speaker Pelosi had said she didn't want to give even more than one dollar to the border wall. President Trump has talked about five point six billion dollars. Is there any given the five point six billion dollars in terms of whether or not has to be a wall or whether it can be more generally border security? I think the president said for a long time that it was five point six billion dollars for border security, including the wall, we recognize that things like technology import border border crossings are important. But certainly a barrier is important. We didn't make much progress at the meeting which was surprising to me. I thought we had come in to talk about terms that we could agree on places where we all. Agreed. We should be spending more time more attention things we can do to improve our border security and yet the opening line from one of the leading democrat negotiators was. That they were not there to talk about an agreement. They were actually my mind there to stall, and we did not make much progress. What were they there to do? If not to negotiate. They had a lot of technical complaints about data that they were asking for for the first time things that we weren't even aware. They were interested in the vice president I've been talking to Chuck Schumer now for over two weeks. And this has never been raised with us before. And that's how they opened the meeting today. And so they were not interested in having any further discussions until they had received this technical data from us, and that the government was opened which is very strange at the president. I think yesterday at accurately asked the question. So you want me to negotiate opening the government after the government is already open. So it was a very disappointing meeting. So the shutdown obviously is already having it's in its third week now real world effects for about eight hundred thousand federal government employees were furloughed or working without pay. In addition to contractors, I want you to take a listen to one of the furloughed workers from college. Bado?.
