The Daily 202's Big Idea

Trump ordered an attack on Iran but called it off at the last minute

"The daily Joe twos. Big idea is sponsored by US Bank, US Bank believes communities thrive. When individuals succeed working together, we can help create economic opportunity for all. Good morning. I'm James Hillman from the Washington Post. And this is the daily to oh to for Friday, June twenty-first in today's news letters from Mississippi archive undercut Joe Biden's efforts at damage control, the NRA sidelines, it's top lobbyists after discovering text messages. It says implicate him in the failed coup attempt against Wayne LOP year and millions of undocumented immigrants have gone into hiding ahead of impending ice free. The first the big idea. President Trump ordered an attack on Iran yesterday in retaliation for the downing of a surveillance drone in the strait of Hormuz, but he called the operation off just hours before it was due to occur. Planes were literally in the air ships were in position troops were in motion. But no missiles had been fired. When Trump sent word to stand down administration officials say, the president approved a series of counter strikes against Iranian radar, and missile batteries, after the revolutionary guard shut down the navy drone off runs southern coast, but Trump changed his mind. It's not immediately clear why but the decision was first reported by the New York Times and administration. Officials confirmed it to us as late, as seven PM military, and diplomatic officials were expecting a strike after what we're told was an intense debate inside the situation room earlier in the afternoon, speaking alongside visiting Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Oh, Trump condemned the shootdown, but also appeared to tamp down speculation that account or strike was in the works. He said the drone may have been shot down without the knowledge of Iranian leadership. But then the Iranian government released video footage of the drone being shot down over triumphant music on Thursday, the European Union announced that officials from Germany Britain, France. Russia, China and Iran will meet without the United States next week to discuss strategies to salvage the nuclear pact despite renewed US sanctions and Tehran's threat to exceed limits on its uranium stockpiles. This is happening is nearly a quarter of the world's oil passes through the strait of hormones, which connects Middle East energy producers to markets around the globe overnight, the Federal Aviation Administration issued an emergency order prohibiting all US aircraft operators from flying near Tehran controlled airspace. Many international flights have been canceled this morning that go through the region. This is all happening without a permanent. Secretary of. Offense or a deputy secretary of defense at the Pentagon acting secdef. Patrick Shanahan is stepping down. Today. He withdrew from his confirmation process to become secretary after revelations about past family, strife, he's handing off responsibility for the military to Mark Esper- who now serves as secretary of the army, it's unclear how this turnover will affect the internal debate at the White House about dealing with Iran. But some defense officials are privately voicing alarm that a cabal of hardliners led by national security adviser John Bolton who was publicly advocated regime change in Iran in the past is trying to create the conditions to make war with Iran inevitable and they fear the lack of strong leadership at the Pentagon, maybe strengthening Bolton's hand. And that's the big idea here are three other headlines that should be on your radar this Friday. Number one. Joe Biden on Wednesday night described his relationship with Jim Eastland as one he quote had to put up with. He said he disagreed with the Mississippi segregationist unquote, everything he stood for, but a cache of letters and Eastland papers at the university of Mississippi show, a very different kind of relationship one in which they were aligned in work together on one of the biggest civil rights issues of the nineteen seventies Biden was a freshman Senator when he reached out to Eastland to solicit support for one of his earliest legislative proposals. The courts were ordering racially segregated school districts to bus children to create more integrated classrooms, a practice Biden opposed in wanted to change through so did Eastland and Eastland helped him out Biden set at the time that he didn't think busing was the best way to integrate schools in Delaware after demanding that Cory Booker apologized to him. For criticizing his comments about working well with racists, and segregationists, in them, being civil Biden called up the New Jersey, Senator to try to smooth things over and last night, Biden went to the capitol to meet with members of the Congressional Black caucus today. He's going to be in South Carolina. He's meeting with African American leaders before Jim Clyburn, fish fry to try and turn the page. Number two, the National Rifle Association sidelined its top lobbyists. Chris Cox after accusing him in court documents participating in what it describes as a failed extortion scheme to rid the organization of its top executive Cox's, a well-known figure in DC is the NRA second in command. And he leads its powerful political arm. He's been placed on administrative leave after the organization, follow lawsuit in New York against former NRA president Oliver North from the Iran contra scandal who resigned in April after accusing the NRA of exorbitant spending. The chief executive Wayne LaPierre accused north of attempting to extort the group in its new suit. The NRA accuses Cox of participating in a quote conspiracy with north law Pierre accused north of working in concert with the groups estranged public relations firm Ackerman McQueen in its lawsuit against north, the NRA says that the former marine Colonel said he could. Work with Ackerman's co-founder to negotiate quote an excellent retirement for LOP year if he cooperated now. The lawsuit also implicates another board member. Former Oklahoma congressman democrat, Dan, Boren in this alleged scheme. Born didn't respond to our request for comment and Cox calls the allegations against him offensive and patently false. He's led the lobbying arm of the group since two thousand and two tax records show, he was paid one point one million dollars in two thousand seventeen we also are learning the NRA has placed one of Cox's, top deputies Scott Christman on administrative leave as well. Number three undocumented. Immigrants are trying to stay out of sight as Trump repeats his threats for massive raids. The president's proclamation that federal agents will soon round up millions of families illegally in the country and deport them has accelerated the fear that has been building up for more than two years. Among the nation's estimated ten point five million undocumented residents parents are keeping their children at home out of summer programs shopping trips are being consolidated to limit driving migrants without papers or avoiding large crowds and they're not going out at night. Some have stopped attending church services. They're praying at home, so they don't get picked up one hundred woman told us that she's been hunkered down in her. Stuffy apartment since hearing about Trump's announcement. She said she feels like a prisoner. Meanwhile, more evidence is emerging of young migrant kids being treated poorly in you. Government custody at the southern border a legal team that interviewed dozens of children at a border patrol station in Texas found that some two hundred fifty infants children and teens are being locked up in traumatic endanger situations. Three girls aged ten to fifteen said, they'd been taking turns watching over a two year old boy, because there was no one to look after him when the lawyers saw the boy he wasn't wearing a diaper and had wet his pants and his shirt was smeared in mucus, the lawyers told the AP that at least fifteen children at the facility had the flu and some were being kept in medical quarantine, the children told the lawyers, that they were fed uncooked frozen food or rice and had gone weeks without bathing or getting clean change of clothes at the facility in Clint, which is in the desert scrubland, twenty five miles southeast of El Paso, the head of the border patrol acknowledges that children need better, medical care, and a place to recover from their own is's. But he said they're overwhelmed. Meanwhile, a Trump administration lawyer argued in open court this week that detained migrant children do not need access to soap or toothbrushes for the federal government to comply with a legal requirement that they be held in quote, safe insanitary conditions. The administration says giving kids toothbrushes and soap was not explicitly listed as part of the landmark nineteen eighty-five Florez case, which established guidelines for the way miners held him federal immigration detention. Must be treated. So therefore they say it's not necessary. And that's the daily to two for Friday, June twenty-first. Thanks for listening. Have a good weekend.

We have a lot of news to cover this week so let's hit the high notes hot notes all right so a story dropped in the Washington Post about Jeffrey Epstein Lines Sweet Jail Deal Palm Beach County in Palm Beach Florida and how a supervisor at the jail who works for the Sheriff wrote a memo saying that Epstein was poorly versed in jail routine and his adjustment to incarceration would be atypical so oh he authorized this Guy Supervisor Authorized Epstein cell door be left unlocked so that he could watch T._v. in attorney room whenever he wanted they installed the T._v. for him by the way <hes> rough rough rough jail days and six days a week he was allowed out for twelve hours a day to work in his office but even beyond that he was allowed to hang out in his mansion on at least nine occasions without supervision and one time he was left unattended for four hours in his mansion so the Palm Beach County Sheriff now. I guess his name is Brick Bradshaw. He was a sheriff back then to him. Yeah he's been there for a while and I think it's the same deputy to. I'd have to look into it but he announced that he'll be investigating the actions of Deputies assigned to monitor Epstein so I guess he's investigating the actions of himself and his staff at the time because like if I read it correctly like Jeffrey Epstein they had to wear suits his yeah they weren't like atypical guards yeah they were in suits and one of his drivers was he was a Russian guy named Eagle or and he was like a mixed martial artist and so these were not typical dudes these were like hand picked for Epstein and he paid over one hundred twenty eight thousand dollars dollars just to have this privilege of having these guards follow him to where he went instead of being guarded at the prison like a regular fucking inmate. He's living in a mob 'cause play totally Maho. You've thought so true. Apparently a lot of female visitors came and according I think one of his former lawyers his name is Edward. He said that these women would come into Jeffrey's office thinking they were going to talk to him about something business like and then they would be manipulated into sexual encounters while he's serving his sentence so it was like he was he just kept during this this power move with people and I wonder who those women are and if they would ever come forward because this is his former lawyer saying this wow yeah I mean it makes while he's in jail for child rape. Basically they charged him with prostitution which I don't understand how somebody under eighteen can be considered prostitute but okay victim blaming much. He's jail quote unquote and while he's on this release. He's doing what he's in jail for his attorney. He said he was definitely having having sexual encounters with female visitors they didn't specify what age but it did seem like he was coercing these women one way or another and he was doing this at this like foundation. He built some nonprofit job foundation that he built. That's where he spent his office time so they come. It's every day I find a new reason to nachos. nonprofits seriously fucking sucks. What is his charity just charity for Epstein helped me <hes> give gene and yeah there's some good ones out there but it's just like so easy to exploit for sure of corruption and stuff I mean look at the trump foundation and yeah from what you were talking about? I think those guards were like more like security to protect him guard him from doing yeah and and their eagle rhyme the Russian name ego or like that was very interesting like Jordan. They were saying <hes> off the air that that it's very interesting that Epstein had a Russian guy guarding. In Him with a very Russian name wearing a suit and this is all unusual to the prison standards like normal inmates. Don't get this treatment let alone some Russian mixed martial arts no offense to Russian mixed martial arts people but just because Epstein scientists tied up and we're the Mueller investigation all his people know Russians. I'm just like hey why is he being protected by these guys instead of regular guards yeah and what was he doing it as mansion just hanging out yeah. It's all about him like he's a dog now when he was left unattended for four hundred right yeah in one of the guards asked him a corner. He wasn't the Ebor Guy. It's probably regular American do but he was like I was unclear about my job and when they clarify it they said you're there to protect him. These guards I mean I guess guards are supposed to protect inmates but they need to call him inmate. They always they were supposed to call him. Jeffrey all of the guards referred to him as Jeffrey Yeah and they're supposed to call an inmate Epstein Jeffrey first-name basis whole thing seems very arranged attached versed in jail routines true and you know you said isn't that the fucking point of jail like <hes>. have it suck yeah. It's a punishment I think <hes> but at the same time the rest of US yeah it's just I don't know I think it's crazy how they tried to use the argument that they have to jump through hoops because of his privilege and they were like people are saying that you know we got leniency but no we had to work harder because but that's what privileged thinks oppression is any kind of hoop. He's gotta fill out paperwork and they probably like this is crazy. You know yeah with my ipad and I didn't. I read something like they were like. Oh we'll actually he had a lot more problems because of his wealth yeah. That's awesome guy working for him was saying Yeah Oh yeah poor bore Epstein yeah but that's what it's like when you have heavy sociopaths with so much power as they really feel like victims through and through and you can't change their mind you can only lock them up forever which will do yeah and that's why I don't get some of these laws that require you to have willful and knowing knowingly like no. You're breaking the law. These guys don't fucking in any format so am I going to apply it or remember it or anything out of it. Their entire lives basically it applies to them so how could they possibly have knowledge that they're breaking the law when they don't think it applies to everything from like sorry no I was Gonna say he spent his whole life like you. Were saying doing this yeah and like people just starting out with just getting your D. You is sort of you know taking taking care of not needing to go through the justice as some stuff like that and you just yeah I imagine just doing stuff over <unk> over game because you keep known more people may get more money and Guinness kinds of Americans they talk about. It's got to be white collar and blue collar because that seems to be the dividing line not even necessarily racial. It's like if you're poor. You're not GonNa get away with any of this. If you're rich like this guy is the limit you know when you do go to jail you you get to go home twelve hours a day and keep cramming yes insanity. It's so <hes> what do you think he's going to do. What do you think he's in there for like these guys would drive him to his mansion or his office and they would park outside hi and they'd be like I didn't go inside but I saw who inside and it's like? Why did you just let this happen? You're supposed to be a guard what the fuck and why is the sheriff. Who did that investigating this yes? This is all weird Pollard yeah. Maybe you could be like a Deutsche Bank thing sort of where they're trying to clean their hands of having any sort of connections with Donald Trump. I don't know what those guys were doing but we wouldn't have given him alone all right but you're the head of the organization and he did so yeah yeah like Oh. This is <hes> <hes> you know. This is horrible that he was treated so well. I'm going to look into this that I was in charge of. What are you even very high? I don't know maybe that's not a high profile case at the time but I'm pretty sure that's that's awful to imagine that that would just be a drop in the bucket. Uh of a bunch of sex crimes that having but maybe it was like that so it truly does just under the rug which is grotesque yeah and the judge is not a fan either if you can if you can be unbiased in these situations but he basically <hes> <hes> he's like no you don't get out on bail right. It's probably more likely they're just facing so much public pressure exactly Miami Herald killing it and they're finally being treated the way they should have but this is an old man. This is why when I think of trump to it's like whatever kind of retribution or justice we gotta this. He still lived his whole life bigness person. He's towards the what sixty six or something yeah so. It's like so much damage already done so much so it's really about making a statement for the next fuckers you know but yeah I hope he goes down to obviously go down absolutely an and I think that's one of the main differences between like us. Trump supporters is Bill Clinton goes down. We aren't going to try to defend him but if trump is connected they'll try to defend core. Like how many times have we ever brought up Schneiderman after he got ousted this because you did some gross shit and now you're gone and that's it and we're not sitting here dwelling on how it was like some anti state writing we call for Al Franken's resignation and the Republicans nominated a child rapist to be a senator not somebody who listeners are actually critical that US which I understand their frustration they are saying that we were talking about Al <hes> for the photograph and they you know listener. I made a good case about how the worst thing that Al did might have been apologizing for something that made it seem like he did more because it seems like in the photograph that they're referring to like supposedly he's not touching her and like I think if he did something then yes it was a joke but yeah I was a bit right and and you know I e exactly but I think my point is is to say that we don't come down on people for either me too stuff for child pornography. Whatever it is is is just so backwards and so wrong exactly and the fact that ready to replace him like you said someone that was like worse? It's like it's a really delicate dance like in this case I think they should go down across the board but there are some cases whereas Liberal Party it doesn't flicked sometimes more damage because how hypocritical the other party is just undo all the justice. We're trying to do by replacing them with someone like that so I wasn't well. I wasn't insinuating. I'm sorry if I miscommunicated this that Roy Moore didn't replace Alfred. I'm just urged him to be. We got rid of Al Franken for a joke doc and they ran a pedophile and they're running again continues. Yes thank you for the clarification because you're still stands yeah yeah they replaced him with a female Roy will not replace. Can you imagine a bunch of his potential constituents just sitting there praying for him to win the election yeah well. I mean some of them believed the accusations cost him. Yeah believes that I've just saying right right. I mean that has to happen because his base supported him even after admitting that maybe there's some truth to the allegations but they said they would rather support him because to have another person in the office. That's going to be pro abortion pro choice. That's is to use what's worse for them. Yeah then their kids being and maybe they are ineffective but this is so much bigger. It's it's they're contributing to rape culture in a negative way by thinking that they're saving the moral value of something else. It's like it's just my daughter. Just don't kill the fetus but of course they wouldn't actually say you can read my daughter but I'm like how do you not see that this is encouraging of that behavior and your child could be affected by living in this fucked up world early sanctioning it right yeah yeah and in their minds to they just they. They've done their own religious. Just moral cost benefit analysis on this guy being a frigging teenage Kid yes sex R Kelly. His music is so good and he's a black powerful man so I was going to lean into that instead of the fact that he's damaging the lives of young women. Yeah that's just they really weighing out the you know bad with the worse and I say fuck it all right yeah no. That's what got them into this situation but yeah it's like. It's is not a joke like dude. You're single. You can have sex with whoever you want. He's like no no that would be yeah. It's it's a crazy world hashtag not all people but there's a lot of people out there. For Real I know I watch a lot of forensic files and how are their nineteen seasons with thirty four episodes of peace. There just fucked up. I hate that show watching a bit of it and you're like dude. I stayed awake in bed for like an hour and a half. I had to tell L. myself like okay Jordan. It's okay to process that people get murdered. Just sit there and just accept it to be one of the worst ones I've ever seen off L. Escape. That's fucking awful yeah. That was pretty bad. <hes> sorry okay. Arts community entity gives us good for me yeah yeah. There's you know we gotta get people. I do love our community. If you're a patriot and you're in the closed facebook group it is the coolest group of people and and if you're not just people are just like only facebook and I respect that but I'll see on twitter on the flip side but the cooling is if you ever need anything. There's somebody in that group. That's an expert at it like it's a great. It's not just like a cool like group like minded people that good networking working yeah. What was that slogan together? We know everything together. We know every ten and we'll get it right eventually. DIG It so Jerry Nadler. He's the what is he the House Judiciary Chair. He's asking for clarification on hope Hicks testimony because a bunch of Michael Cohen documents warrants were unredacted. They removed the black bars because the judges like well. If you're shutting down this investigation I'm releasing their to the public not cool and he didn't say this isn't cool but I felt like that was his feeling right. I'm <unk>. I'm assigning bias to a judge. That's bad but yeah so Nadler is like well and that if that's the case because hope Hicks in her testimony besides saying I have blanket immunity or absolute immunity one hundred fifty five times besides that she actually did say that she was was not present during conversations between Cohen and trump or or about any present present for any conversation about the hush money payments and the these records these search warrants tell a different story she was on the phone and part of these conversations nations in texts and emails and I think she's going to be able to get off on a technicality just like Jeff sessions. Did we're Jeff Sessions said I thought you were asking me not just if I had any contact with Russians I've out you're asking me if I was discussing sanctions and colluding being in talking about election interference with Russians. That's what I thought you meant and unfortunately when she asked the question she asked if she was present during any of those conversations and hope Hicks is probably going to be able to say I wasn't present. I was on the phone exactly yeah surprised if now they wanted me in a criminal referral yeah <hes> and because then you can ask her the follow up question alright. Were you on the phone for any of those conversations and would you mind telling us what you talked about right right now. We know you had him. It's a matter of public record and I feel select the judiciary knew this. They knew what was behind those reductions because when she asked Ripley asked she was like. Are you sure you're telling me that you weren't pregnant friend. WHO's cover? Are you sure think about your answer. You know she yes like she knew and so I I think they had access to this unless you're some like crazy mind game. They do ask that a lot. Totally the do ask like are your shirt. Do you assure you want to say that. I don't know lease background Bush Dino. She's a prosecutor cuter in her background. I don't know I don't think so. I'd have to look it up but I don't think so but I mean it was a great line of questioning definitely joe go easy on her because she's High Lake. Let her be hot Felon Bay. She can still be hot yeah. They exist modeling contract contractor. They get out like yeah. Put Her in there but I hope they don't like get blinded by like that at all. Your hotness hot fill in Bay is the Swimming Pool Epstein demanded he have access to that makes his writer this hard firm Bain Nice Underage Lady Lagoon. Oh so gross liberations are fun though I mean if you're GonNa if you <hes> so there's a a new asylum rule that's being piloted in two locations on along the Rio Grande Right <hes> and <hes> I guess they're what they're saying Jordan. What are they saying? What's this new rule? Yes so mark Morgan is one that was coming out and talking about it. He's acting customs and Border Protection Commissioner. He came in on Thursday and he said that this new rule is in the piloting phase. Although there's no reports from people that actually work in asylum saying that they've been seeing it being piloted loaded but what is supposed to do so. It's a rule that's coming out of the departments of Justice and Homeland Security and with limited exceptions is supposed to prohibit migrants who have resided or quote transited enroute unquote to <hes> any third country from seeking asylum in the U._S.. So basically it sounds like anyone that's coming from a country that does not directly border the United States essentially so we're going to accept desailly's from Canada and Mexico e yeah. That's that's what it sounds like. It doesn't doesn't go very much into the logistics of that or like if someone I don't know flies over here from another country or something or like I don't it doesn't go into all those details but <hes> essentially they're saying that they're trying to do this to dramatically dramatically like it sure amass typically new word pointing pointing at her mouth and surprised that came out of it doesn't just went so rogue difficult ethically it just blows off mouth is attached to the brain. We're very credible reporters here. <hes> trump wouldn't even stop to correct himself word now deal with it true and then fucking because everything's fucked it would be in Webster Lake like two years right next to Hella and selfish exactly dramatically. I don't even whatever so it's supposed to lower lower. The number of migrants that they're seeing at the border across the board is what they're saying is the goal of this <hes> but obviously it is targeting a very specific region of people that asylum-seeking rights essentially would just be taken away and and I assume that makes it then illegal by this declaration to come here and present yourself for asylum from Honduras for example. I don't know if it would be illegal legal there if they would just say no. I think it would just be no but Ozo- because I'm afraid that that would be their reason for detention. You know right. Yeah I mean. A._C._L._U.'s already just like waiting for this to start you know so they can sue in court yeah. I'm sure I lost it will drop tomorrow Yeah Yeah and a lot of experts are predicting that there's no way the courts are going to let this go through so <hes> it's just so anticipated coal to like everything that our entire immigration system the good parts of it are supposed to to represent and what's left of the Mark Morgan is not the guy who says he can tell by looking at a child's is that they're going to be an M._s. thirteen when they get older. I think that's that Guy Disgusting Winner Yeah <hes> let's see what else happened today or this weekend. The U._S. shot down on an Iranian drone over the Strait of Hormuz and that's escalating tensions in the area obviously there that straight of Hormuz is pretty tense area region anyway so what the navy ship the U._S. boxer Iranian drone came within a thousand feet of it and I don't think they shot it down <hes> <hes> there's a couple of different weapons you can use on the deck of a ship to shoot steph down like a see whiz or whatever but I don't think they did that. I think from what I understood they use some sort of technological weapon to disable it which just caused it to crash into the ocean so there's that hat and that's all over the news <hes> and I think that's on the heels of of what a tanker U._k.. Tanker being taken over by Iranians or something like that they can just all sorts of stuff going on <hes> at escalating tensions <hes> and God. God I hope there's I hope there's not a war yeah in every day. I'm like are we there yet. Cool it'd be like Bolton wants to start one and he's always his mustache wants to start another. Yeah Man. He's half man half must have must yeah I I called my reps at this number right down everybody to o two two two four three one to one you call them giving your Zip Code. They connect you to your Rep's office and <hes> I told him to. Please not take us to war. You know what I did that same 'cause I. John Oliver was encouraging it and he's really good at like getting people to do shit and I just wanted it was about Iran to you. Oh cool yeah yeah because it's been like bubbling for a while but I did this a few weeks ago but hell yes do you call your Reps. Do you give that number. Two guys hit on you. That's mark. Oh my gosh killing shorten Cobra enjoyed in the country ginger with Jordan. Okay what's going on in Jordan. Oh my God earning. I hope and I mean everything's since ripped up the the nuclear deal which was working which he admitted was working when he basically said that today it was like a month ago but he said today eh they went over what was in their agreement and so then it's like oh so they've been following it right. <hes> you just didn't authorize it exactly what also really troubles me about the new cycle that happens like <hes> a few weeks ago when there there was a video of you know allegedly like Iran taking off one of their minds from the boat I remember that yeah so when all of that was going on and it was all these competing theories in news organizations coming out with one one story then changing it hours later there was really no resolution. I don't think I don't think if that for the American public which is I think most people were like <hes> yeah. I don't believe that right but it's like considering this could very well be his his next goal for the next four years. God forbid if he gets elected <hes> this is something that we need to be really diligent about understanding sort of what any sort conclusive evidence exists yes for. They're doing Florida. I would look for it before the election win elections yeah oh totally so yeah fear. Bring this country together. Not I don't agree with that so this is a fat. It's like yeah yeah because if the goal is to get reelected then yes also that it because it shields him from being charged with crime right. It's hard to get a new president in the middle of wartime because people you know they don't want that shakiness of the transition whole campaign slogan like keep me out of jail yeah electric that's great but he's like I mean he could very well be turning into sort of career oligarch right so a lot of people get out of the White House and then that's why Ted Cruz in A._S._C. had that rare moment of agreement upon having a law that says that people can't be after they get out because is trump will be the biggest lobbyists them to come out of that doing so much damage while he's here but imagine what he'll do once he's out of the public but still influential. It's going to be fucking crazy totally so even if you can't successfully take us to war before the election even if it happens after he gets still benefit greatly from all of the contracts and Yuck and just a Mile Lagos are like are friggin trump allies that we have now we have to remember when he goes away the people who chanted send her back or still here yeah and also our allies the country's allies we no longer really had them to the same standards and Obama was here so that might not just come back because he's gone. They might just be like we're not forever. I hope that it does I hope that the everyone sort of waiting for him to leave so they can. We just get back to normal right yeah. frigging people are like I forget which person it was <hes>. I think it was there. I'm not gonNA miss speak it was it was an official though of Iran that was like I'm not I'm not going to negotiate. I'm not even GonNa talk talked to this dude. He's like there's no point even talking to him yeah. They're they're literally overtly saying like I will not negotiate with this person and it's not I won't negotiate with the United States that dude. I'm not talking to that. Do that's fair. Yeah I mean I don't I wouldn't I wouldn't either yeah yeah totally but I hope it gets better. God Vote People Vote Yeah Yeah <hes> another pedophile closely associated with trump George Nader he was hit with superseding indictments three of them three charges for obscenity child transportation child pornography so he was already hit up with those I think twelve or so many counts of <hes> possessing child pornography for having those videos on his phone when when it was confiscated by Muller and <hes> the minute he set foot back in the country they've nabbed him but the now the they found they have evidence that he transported a child from Europe to the United States and took him to his hat and took this boy to his house to for sexual reasons so he louise yeah supported a point play right yeah dip fourteen F for ten sanity for context because this will be the first time people are tuning in. Can you give a quick rundown of Nader and his role in some of the key things his biggest thing was he participated in that August third <hes> Twenty Sixteen in trump tower meeting between Joel Zamel and some folks from the trump campaign and Zamel was the guy who worked for PSI group who wrote up <hes> these I guess they were proposals for how they could manipulate social media to win the election and the trump campaign says they never used his plans than with a paid for right after the election exactly nater transferred two million dollars to him and it wasn't Nader's two million dollars because nature is only worth three million. That's a lot to put up your own fine and two of its in cryptocurrencies Yeah Yeah Oh my goodness but he's got a long history of this George Nader of sexual abuse minors <hes> raping kids like the worst stuff you could possibly child pornography yeah yeah. It's really really bad I really I read those charging undocument- he's worse than Epstein and I can't believe I'm saying that he's actually worse than Epstein yeah well. He was what he did. I mean they're all God awful but like if there are levels to this evil shit yet mater is the worst for sure at least the worst I've seen yeah and this whole mall moderate Yeah Yeah Fair enough. I'm sure there's some sick fuck out. There is like a whole beer. I don't want to know about that. I didn't even want to read those charging documents yeah I can't I need brain bleach Jordan. What's up with <hes> your your liberal paper straws? Oh Yeah so <hes> the trump campaign has an adorable merchandise idea right now where they <hes> sent out an email blast to their email list folks and said <hes> basically the liberal snowflake papers trouser bullshit. You could buy this pack of ten Donald Trump plastic straws for fifteen dollars. I do think paper straws or bullshit. It's the first thing I've agreed with but know who's going to buy this shit yeah. <hes> <hes> probably Scott Pruitt. I just think yeah I think it's hilarious that they're going to spend fifteen dollars on ten plastic straws to own the libs yeah trump's themes dries. I can see how some trump would be like this to my collection collection of like my trumpy bearing leg. I'm sure they have other getting ripped off to own US and they've been doing this like lighting their nikes on fire yeah already paying for them or what are we breaking their curic machines or something. Oh Yeah <unk> damaging their own stuff in this case are gaining something. I'll give them that you know. They get something for your money that way. They'll concept is they're being fucked over by trump. WHO's overpricing straws his trumpet? I don't even understand how it's legal for him to brand presidential merchandise. That's already ready legal but he we're so far past that you know it's like yeah. It might be campaign funds then that's probably how he gets around it. You can sell whatever you want to campaign yeah and he started running the day after he was inaugurated as the first time I've ever happened to you. Insanity Brad Pascale said <hes> I'm so overpay straws and I'm sure you are too much like most liberal ideas paper straws don't work and they fall apart instantly. That's fine. That's why we just launched our latest product official trump straws now you can finally be free. Reform Liberal paper straws that fall apart within minutes in ruin your drink paper or whatever those are called right those things that the carcinogens and plastic bottles Oh yes. It's probably food yeah one hundred percent. I'm sure this was a direct deal with Walmart and it was like in a factory using diesel fuel my wish there fucking here on that stuff and they sit there and they're so brainwashed like fucking trouser target target their bullshit but like just sip from the glass. That's what I do like. Don't fucking by trump straw but I get how it's it's totally an easy target polluting. We're not perfect but we're we're doing it for the right reasons like I don't. I'm not against paper refused to use wind but I'm so glad they exist because if you wanNA draw their bullshits stainless steel that's what's up. It's better for the environment. Yes also other like biodegradable stuff that kind of resembled plastic more doesn't turn into like disgusting tree motion your drink yeah on second. I don't know I like it. It does it does seem like a <hes> insignificant story sort of just like a cute headline but there is some sort of good stuff like you said number one your how are you able to put your A._G.. said it how do you put his name on on sell it like presidential merchandise because he got all that pushback when he wanted to make the coin yet fucking yeah and then so he's doing that and then on top of that. It's just a ridiculous issue peddling of Anti Environment Airman yes. It's like so hardy over like yeah police making the environment. A partisan thing is horrifying. It's like no literally we're GONNA die like all the heat act people white people fuck it like ever ever going to politicize like okay they wanted to you know make sure the oil companies were making money and they didn't want to hurt the economy and then they started saying of course the temperatures increasing but it's not because of people that's a hoax yeah. They're just flat out. Fuck the environment. I'm GONNA record yet. They don't even give a fuck because they have so much like I guess momentum when it comes to these surface level issues of just hating the libs somehow still loving the planet go fuck. It is weird seriously. I know they were so satisfied with themselves. When I thought of that metaphor definitely like Oh man they were waiting for some product to come from the environment that would be like not perfect weird stance but you know uh-huh solving your dream? I'll give you that does if you nurture drink. It can be tough also paper. Mills are incredibly blue collared as well which is kind of a big slap in their face yeah of the papermill workers. We'll bring your plastic jobs. I just yeah it's a it's a very good example in a way of trump showing hypocrisy in short sightedness and it's just a weird stance. It's a metaphor the trump mhm strasser almost like a metaphor in themselves like yeah we will kill the earth just to own the lips yup yeah basically and we'll pay for it and we'll pay for made in China. Have we checked the sea turtles pay hey for it would kind of be a good thing for them to do is send everybody a check for like ninety six cents and say it's for Mexico for you. That would be like their pay or something like just really get into it. There you go yeah yeah just male supporters or just a brick. That's Mexico paid for this and started on me twenty dollars a ship right yeah Roger Stone's yeah. It's not logical. She still only motion. I didn't think this through stones are really heavy. Yes yes he's thinking oh stones are cheap all right my name on them and sell them. I'll make a crapload of money should be used to ship show on thirty rock like gold gold case where they had to guess which case was full of gold and the model couldn't hold it up right. Oh my gosh that's so funny. Shut it down. It was like dealer no dealer something gold or no gold. It is pretty great all right guys. We're GONNA be right back. Just after this word you just became president and it's hard you want to ignite the right but you don't have the stamina. You definitely have some explaining cleaning to do your brain's not attached your mouth who knew fascism took so much energy we did. That's why we created at forty five forty.

It is time for our call to Action Segment Hashtag. So if you're on social media you may have seen the Hash tag free reality winner and that spearheaded by reality winters mom billy J winner Davis or at B._J.. Winner Davis on twitter so reality. Lee Winner is a former air forced linguist and intelligence contractor that served honorably in the air force and she'd never been convicted of a crime before but while working for the N._S._A.. As a contractor in May of two thousand seventeen <hes> that's the day trump fired Komi. She printed out a report from her work computer `puter detailed hacking attacks against local election officials in voter databases in over twenty one states in the U._S.. So a few days later she smuggled it out of the office in her pantyhose and she sent it to the intercept. That's a media that and the F. B.. I. Arrested or two days before the report was published after being denied bail four times <hes> and held in a small county jail in rural Georgia for over a year reality changed her plea to guilty and agreed to a plea deal that landed her the longest sentence ever for a crime of this type in the United. States the prosecutors recommended sixty three months and the judge obliged and the problem there is that normally federal cases based their sentencing on damage to national security <hes> and she pleaded guilty in June of two thousand eighteen after being held for over a year in prison and as we said and she did apologize took responsibility for her actions <hes> and U._S. Attorney Bobby L. Christine a trump appointee said winners purposeful violation put our nation's security at risk and caused exceptionally grave damage to U._S. national security but did it because according to Robert Cat natch a former D._O._J.. Lawyer in the Civil Division he says that in this case no one's identity was revealed and no one was endangered and despite that and her honorable service they handed down the longest sentence ever imposed in a federal court for unauthorized release of government information to the media at like for example in twenty three twenty thirteen former F._b._i.. Agent got forty three months for a leak of a foiled bomb plot in Yemen to the Associated Press that same year a C._I._A.. Agent was given thirty months for revealing the identity of an undercover agent like blue cover in two thousand fifteen a former C._i._A.. Agent got forty two months for leaking secret opt to disrupt Iran's nuclear program to the New York Times so this is just a sentence or it doesn't seem like it seems retaliatory right. It seems like an attempt to silence information about the Russian hacking operation because that threatens the legitimacy of trump's election first of all and perhaps retaliation for her frustration with trump's firing of Komi which you know meets the federal manual criteria materia for obstruction of justice when he fired by the way so in his press release on the day of Winter Sentencing <hes> U._S.. Attorney Christine Bobby Christine indicated that the sentence was meant to be harsh enough to send a deterrent to any other whistle blowers out there and the judge in the case even verbally expressed that there was no doubt reality winner would never see the inside of a courtroom again these statements themselves indicate the her sentence was not just <hes> but the D._O._J.. And this administration appears very pleased with the manner in which reality winner has been treated and her harsh sentence for over over five over five years in prison so much so that earlier this year at an at an Annual D._O._J.. Awards banquet those involved in securing this record breaking sentence. We're given awards. I didn't know you had awards for this. <hes> realities mother Billie Winner Davis acknowledges fully that her daughter violated her oath and contract by releasing classified documents in the manner in which she did but her treatment and the sentence <hes> forgiving US proof of threats to our democracy appear to be disproportionate and clearly a result of of an overzealous prosecution meant to silence. It's anyone who brings out the truth about Russian election Gary <hes> because trump is so too thick skinned so a police had to stand with reality dot org to sign the petition and Checkout Hash Tag Free Reality Winner on Social Media and vote blue and twenty twenty so we we can partition a new reasonable administration that recognizes the importance of alerting the public to Russian election interference to maybe commute her sentence yeah she. She's incredibly brave for what she did because she had to know she was up against an unusual administration and I think that's even more brave and throws me off the giving thing award. It's like it's like a razzies like worse foreign actors something like what do they even kind of award you give a piece of shit like that a law enforcement award probably but it's just that's awful yeah congratulations on your awesome prosecution and long sentencing dancing yeah basically I'm like imagining a full-blown awards ceremony the lighting and everything yeah same same porn awards hosted by trees yeah exactly God. Here's our yes the sheriff of Little Rock what's so bad yeah. Tom Hanks this year. Yeah that's weird. I was reading that article. I came across that and I was like what award infinity that's terrifying. They reward that sort of X.. Fascism it and yet I wonder what's the buzz word for it but yeah I just thought that she's in there for five years for what she did. Is it it blows and her and her mom acknowledge you know hey broke the law but MHM sixty three months. She'd one guy got forty two months for outing in an agent exactly yeah you can see the double standard here. It's very clear that could get somebody killed. I don't I can't think of any thing that Sh- national security that will could've killed his career. Yeah Yeah I guess so. What state did this happen again? Georgia Georgia. Oh Georgia is not really winning. This is last year's they haven't been right. That seems like something that should in what what was the court like what circuit or or like what level did it like move up and he sort of level of appeals do you know. They said that she couldn't appeal it essentially right just because she pleaded guilty and agreed okay so that they can mean yeah because I think it's they get like you said. I think it's really plead guilty and then yeah it seems like something that should be handled in a higher court by something else like some other organizations U._S.. Attorney Federal Court yeah. I don't know I guess I just want something more than just like the court of Georgia no offense Georgia national security thing right so what's the U._S.. Attorney's office yeah so it's federal got it southern district of New York but in Georgia Guy Kinda okay cool seems wrong. I'm with Jordan of course it doesn't feel right and there is more they can do yeah. I just imagine that all of these cases would be handled in like D._c.. Or something in some super official representative of the entirety of the American freighter espionage case out pretty quickly quickly they seem they they somehow yes. She admitted it but like they fuck man but yeah I think I think what they do. Is they prosecute where the in the U._S. Attorney's office in the district where the crime was committed. Yeah they have an office there jurisdiction totally under jurisdictional rules or something like that yeah because yeah that's a big word five years and they started last year or June. Two thousand eighteen is when she pleaded guilty okay and she's already there. He's been there. I don't know she got time served for her year that she suspending. They don't give her that that's fucking insane. She got time served. Yes she's a longer sentence a manafort then yeah wow by the time she gets out and that's that's a very good point longer than Cohen Yeah. They'll they'll probably be new president but like fuck it someone part in her on there by chance. If we elect a new administration we can petition to have her sentence or needs to be someone campaign platform years her mom yeah put it on their fascism. This is so fucked yeah. It's messed up just two extra harsh sentence for really what I think is to protect the president's legitimacy yeah yeah he's just really sensitive about Russia's yeah and she had to know the irony of being the person with that name to do this. She was like Goddamn. It's crazy headline reality winter hashtag reality when yeah and the website again is <hes> stand with reality dot org. I like it worked out hell.

Episode #2: #hottakeover your commute Iran

"Hey Everyone David Branston with your host of the hot ticket today. Podcast we are coming to you live from World Broadcasting Headquarters. If you've seen the picture you've seen the SHAG carpet and you know how excited did I am that you've join me. Today's episode is going to be one that we released weekly. It's called the hot takeover. Your commute and the intent of the podcast just to help get you set in ten minutes for the work week ahead so we'll look back on the previous week. Major News events major things that are driving the energy industry some interesting and facts and any other things that we kind of want to talk about last week with it bringing in two thousand and twenty not a ton of energy news to discuss on a personal personal notes. I do do sober January. So if you see me in January you'll see that I pound soda water and lime like it is going out of style. But the annual tradition. I don't always make it to the thirty first. If I'm honest depends on what major events I have coming up at this year. I'm really excited Want to kick start the health getting back into into running so that is what I'm doing. I wish you and your resolutions. The best as you kickoff twenty twenty with a bang well speaking of kicking off twenty twenty with a bang. I think the only thing we really need to talk about on this episode is what happened on Thursday night. In Iran and major so Mani Was A was an Iranian in general before the airstrike in Baghdad at the Baghdad airport ended his life and I'm not going to spend a lot of time on the good the bad ed or the ugly of the geopolitics of that situation because quite honestly there's a lot more politically savvy. Geopolitically Savvy people that can talk about the political ramifications locations and when you're talking about the Middle East your guess is as good as mine a Guy I follow and I have in the show. Notes is Peter Zeon on geopolitics. Really good expertise expertise on the Middle East. So it's in the show notes if you want to do a little bit more reading I definitely recommend Having a look at his articles the New Yorker also had some nice ones over the weekend. So I'll post posting links to that but broadly speaking I think to understand really what the impact of the Iranian airstrike or the American air strike on Iranian general in Iraq. That's quite a mouthful really understand. I think what is going to come out of that you need to make a projection as to. What is Iran going to do in response some interesting facts about Iran? They have the capability of producing three point. Eight million barrels a day and as you know global oil demand slash supply is around one hundred million barrels a day so roughly roughly. They do four percent of the world's oil supply they have eighty one million people which is a surprising number? I was I was quite surprised. By comparison Iraq Iraq has thirty eight million people. Kuwait has four point. Two million people in Saudi Arabia has thirty three million people. So of that oil producing part of the world that produces or has the capability it to produce about twenty percents of the entire global production. The largest by far in fact exceeds the combined population of Iraq Saudi Arabia and Kuwait eight is Iran and as you probably know in November of twenty eighteen the US reintroduce sanctions against Iran which has really crippled their economy. And certainly certainly is no in no large or no small part part of some of what drove the tax over the last month. The attacks over the last three months in the attacks really over the the last year that culminated in the ultimate gonNA call it an assassination of general in more time so Be Be that as is it may what I find really interesting about. Iran is they're currently producing two million barrels a day which is about what their domestic Requirement is just because they're not allowed to export any crude so in terms of their economy. They really have no capability to grow the economy. That's a major major driver in terms of how how Iran might respond. They don't have the financial capability to sustain a war against the world's most wealthy powerful nation with the largest military so so this really brings us to Iraq and and obviously the Iranians have been supporting resistance efforts and militia in Iraq one of the reasons that the general no oh that was was in Baghdad at the time the Iraqis produced four point seven million barrels a day which is You know again. Five percent the issue of the world's supply. And so if you're GONNA see anything breakout in Iran it's likely to be a proxy war through on infrastructure around Iraq The Gulf Four. I remember it because I was in grade seven. I had no idea what a war was. I just knew that the oil price went up and that was good because my dad worked in the energy industry obviously have a very different view that today but I think about the potential ramifications in clearly geopolitical instability in the Middle East is going to drive a a premium to well. What is that dollar? Amount I don't know is at one dollars. A barrel two dollars a barrel five dollars a barrel. But I have to believe that this is going to be very different front than what we saw. In September when the Saudi Arabian facility was attacked and was down for a very brief period of time. I think oil prices aces within a month. We're back below where they were but certainly within two days it was very clear the Saudis we're going to bring production back up to around ten million barrels a day. They have inventory inventory around the world of around one hundred twenty million barrels a day. One hundred twenty million barrels. So there's really no risk to the supply. This in terms of potential tax on infrastructure attacks on facilities attacks in Iraq on five million barrels a day further drones attacks in Saudi Arabian on infrastructure. You may end up with you know one. Two three five million barrels a day potentially at risk and in that scenario I think you definitely see tightness of supply which continues to Dr The price thing. The other thing to think about is right now as you look you know on your typical news report or or website where you get your news. Oil is reported for the February contract month and it closed on Friday at sixty sixty three and change per barrel but when you look to November and December you can see that it Prices trade below sixty dollars a share. The quotes is on Friday. Were below sixty dollars a barrel roughly by August so two to questions that I had that will be answered over the coming. Weeks did the price of oil only go up a dollar or two on Friday Friday because a tremendous number of producers were selling forward barrels and hedging and taking the opportunity to lock in sixty dollar a barrel oil for for the first six seven eight months of the year when they could to guarantee their cash flow and pay down debt. We've talked a lot about the crisis of balance sheets. I think that that's a really essential piece of energy company. Survival is to make sure you lock in cash flow so question number one that I'll be looking for in the queue. Foreign annual reports will be. How much of two thousand twenty production was hedged and how many companies took an opportunity to hedge during the instability that occurred on Thursday and the market opening on Friday thing? The second and uh-huh and related question is is the supply tightness. That's being forecast in the early part of the year. So when you think about backwards backwardation oil prices sixty three dollars a barrel right now by the end of the year oil illustrating at fifty eight. At least that's where the future suggest. So you have a five dollar projected declined through the year. which would be backward as backwardation which which implies you should be producing as many as you can up front because the price is going to fall so your revenue's going to fall? The interesting thing about that is if supplies as tight as they are in my view based on US production declining cop capital starvation in North America limited exploration projects not a ton of were going on in the Gulf of Mexico international growth and then you overlay the political crisis Isis geopolitical crisis in the Middle East. Right now. And you say do you really think that production is going to be the level to satisfy global demand that grows one percent a year and moved from one hundred million barrels a day to one hundred one million barrels next year with all of these things going on that to me is the big question as we move through luke one. I'm looking to see the back end of the oil strip. Come up As you know I am an oil bowl I believe that the supply in the US is coming down and that's going to drive to me. Tightness of supply and when the markets realize that in kind of the February march timeframe. I think that's that's GonNa be the catalyst to drive up the back end of the curve. That's one of the reasons. I'm so optimistic around being able to pay down debt. If you're a good financial company Good Financial Balance Sheet. MP Company in the US right now so that's sort of the the episode today. Iran is a big deal. There's a lot of the people in that region. There's a lot of production coming out of that region. Think that The next two weeks will be very instructive but to me might take away is. This is a very different Geopolitical situation then was this discreet attack on a facility in Saudi Arabia in September and in the tankers through the Strait of Hormuz In June and this has the potential to be a much longer live crisis and based on how the Iranians respond in the coming weeks will drive the geopolitical premium. That's built into oil. Thanks for joining us. Hope you have a great week Until next time find us on HOT TICKET TODAY DOT COM. Subscribe to our email service.

What is that about it is a Colt movie and it is one of the most fucked up movies I've ever seen in my life scary? It's horrifying refined to think about and watch so yes to check it out. I really liked those weird. I'm more or less like Horror Gore and more horror like psychological weirdness definitely oh it's weird yeah. I can't look at trees the same now oh yeah no or anything in nature really so nature. It's okay it's like some pagan like Colt thing so it takes place all during the daytime which is crazy for a horror movie right well. Yeah it's wild anyway. That's my story went up at the comedy store. Yesterday that was fun and that's all as a door guy. Dana Gould Yep did did ma five minutes and he mentioned he liked one of your jokes twice. Yes he was very nice man. He also <hes> Yeah Yeah. He's Hilarious so yeah. What about you Lisa? I went to COMECON that was cool. Oh yeah that's in town this weekend here. We go yeah big thing Yep. A lot of a lot of people dressed up. I remember one time I was working at the hard rock hotel which is right in the middle of it like an and there's just thousands thousands and thousands hundreds of thousands of people walking the streets in costumes and really really good 'cause play and there was a like a convention in from Kansas City like business guys like dentists or something. I don't know they sell dental equipment or whatever I can't even remember they're all standing out front in their suits suits and all these people and costumer welcome by what is happening and I'd like to Saturday man. This is just San Diego Yeah. It's just how we are welcome until your friends in Kansas and his great to imagine someone coming over here for the first time to San Diego just being completely chinaware what is happening Yeah Hammer tambor's joke about because he's an immigrant right he gets here as a boy from Egypt and the first night there here is Halloween so all these people are knocking on its door dressed as monsters and he's like. Why did we come here? He's so funny yeah. I dressed as the Miller report actually Oh night yeah just wore my black and white striped dress and just tape the Miller report on the front and someone's picture yes shit. That's funny redaction dress perfect dress for that you should have. I've had a cager Andrew. You're carrying call them the William Bars Oh that's elaborate. I like that. It's a lot to disbar yeah. That'd be funny license plate if you really cared that much the thought about where about it. We have a lot of news to cover this week so let's hit the high notes hot notes all right so a story dropped in the Washington Post about Jeffrey Epstein Lines Sweet Jail Deal Palm Beach County in Palm Beach Florida and how a supervisor at the jail who works for the Sheriff wrote a memo saying that Epstein was poorly versed in jail routine and his adjustment to incarceration would be atypical so oh he authorized this Guy Supervisor Authorized Epstein cell door be left unlocked so that he could watch T._v. in attorney room whenever he wanted they installed the T._v. for him by the way <hes> rough rough rough jail days and six days a week he was allowed out for twelve hours a day to work in his office but even beyond that he was allowed to hang out in his mansion on at least nine occasions without supervision and one time he was left unattended for four hours in his mansion so the Palm Beach County Sheriff now. I guess his name is Brick Bradshaw. He was a sheriff back then to him. Yeah he's been there for a while and I think it's the same deputy to. I'd have to look into it but he announced that he'll be investigating the actions of Deputies assigned to monitor Epstein so I guess he's investigating the actions of himself and his staff at the time because like if I read it correctly like Jeffrey Epstein they had to wear suits his yeah they weren't like atypical guards yeah they were in suits and one of his drivers was he was a Russian guy named Eagle or and he was like a mixed martial artist and so these were not typical dudes these were like hand picked for Epstein and he paid over one hundred twenty eight thousand dollars dollars just to have this privilege of having these guards follow him to where he went instead of being guarded at the prison like a regular fucking inmate. He's living in a mob 'cause play totally Maho. You've thought so true. Apparently a lot of female visitors came and according I think one of his former lawyers his name is Edward. He said that these women would come into Jeffrey's office thinking they were going to talk to him about something business like and then they would be manipulated into sexual encounters while he's serving his sentence so it was like he was he just kept during this this power move with people and I wonder who those women are and if they would ever come forward because this is his former lawyer saying this wow yeah I mean it makes while he's in jail for child rape. Basically they charged him with prostitution which I don't understand how somebody under eighteen can be considered prostitute but okay victim blaming much. He's jail quote unquote and while he's on this release. He's doing what he's in jail for his attorney. He said he was definitely having having sexual encounters with female visitors they didn't specify what age but it did seem like he was coercing these women one way or another and he was doing this at this like foundation. He built some nonprofit job foundation that he built. That's where he spent his office time so they come. It's every day I find a new reason to nachos. nonprofits seriously fucking sucks. What is his charity just charity for Epstein helped me <hes> give gene and yeah there's some good ones out there but it's just like so easy to exploit for sure of corruption and stuff I mean look at the trump foundation and yeah from what you were talking about? I think those guards were like more like security to protect him guard him from doing yeah and and their eagle rhyme the Russian name ego or like that was very interesting like Jordan. They were saying <hes> off the air that that it's very interesting that Epstein had a Russian guy guarding. In Him with a very Russian name wearing a suit and this is all unusual to the prison standards like normal inmates. Don't get this treatment let alone some Russian mixed martial arts no offense to Russian mixed martial arts people but just because Epstein scientists tied up and we're the Mueller investigation all his people know Russians. I'm just like hey why is he being protected by these guys instead of regular guards yeah and what was he doing it as mansion just hanging out yeah. It's all about him like he's a dog now when he was left unattended for four hundred right yeah in one of the guards asked him a corner. He wasn't the Ebor Guy. It's probably regular American do but he was like I was unclear about my job and when they clarify it they said you're there to protect him. These guards I mean I guess guards are supposed to protect inmates but they need to call him inmate. They always they were supposed to call him. Jeffrey all of the guards referred to him as Jeffrey Yeah and they're supposed to call an inmate Epstein Jeffrey first-name basis whole thing seems very arranged attached versed in jail routines true and you know you said isn't that the fucking point of jail like <hes>. have it suck yeah. It's a punishment I think <hes> but at the same time the rest of US yeah it's just I don't know I think it's crazy how they tried to use the argument that they have to jump through hoops because of his privilege and they were like people are saying that you know we got leniency but no we had to work harder because but that's what privileged thinks oppression is any kind of hoop. He's gotta fill out paperwork and they probably like this is crazy. You know yeah with my ipad and I didn't. I read something like they were like. Oh we'll actually he had a lot more problems because of his wealth yeah. That's awesome guy working for him was saying Yeah Oh yeah poor bore Epstein yeah but that's what it's like when you have heavy sociopaths with so much power as they really feel like victims through and through and you can't change their mind you can only lock them up forever which will do yeah and that's why I don't get some of these laws that require you to have willful and knowing knowingly like no. You're breaking the law. These guys don't fucking in any format so am I going to apply it or remember it or anything out of it. Their entire lives basically it applies to them so how could they possibly have knowledge that they're breaking the law when they don't think it applies to everything from like sorry no I was Gonna say he spent his whole life like you. Were saying doing this yeah and like people just starting out with just getting your D. You is sort of you know taking taking care of not needing to go through the justice as some stuff like that and you just yeah I imagine just doing stuff over <unk> over game because you keep known more people may get more money and Guinness kinds of Americans they talk about. It's got to be white collar and blue collar because that seems to be the dividing line not even necessarily racial. It's like if you're poor. You're not GonNa get away with any of this. If you're rich like this guy is the limit you know when you do go to jail you you get to go home twelve hours a day and keep cramming yes insanity. It's so <hes> what do you think he's going to do. What do you think he's in there for like these guys would drive him to his mansion or his office and they would park outside hi and they'd be like I didn't go inside but I saw who inside and it's like? Why did you just let this happen? You're supposed to be a guard what the fuck and why is the sheriff. Who did that investigating this yes? This is all weird Pollard yeah. Maybe you could be like a Deutsche Bank thing sort of where they're trying to clean their hands of having any sort of connections with Donald Trump. I don't know what those guys were doing but we wouldn't have given him alone all right but you're the head of the organization and he did so yeah yeah like Oh. This is <hes> <hes> you know. This is horrible that he was treated so well. I'm going to look into this that I was in charge of. What are you even very high? I don't know maybe that's not a high profile case at the time but I'm pretty sure that's that's awful to imagine that that would just be a drop in the bucket. Uh of a bunch of sex crimes that having but maybe it was like that so it truly does just under the rug which is grotesque yeah and the judge is not a fan either if you can if you can be unbiased in these situations but he basically <hes> <hes> he's like no you don't get out on bail right. It's probably more likely they're just facing so much public pressure exactly Miami Herald killing it and they're finally being treated the way they should have but this is an old man. This is why when I think of trump to it's like whatever kind of retribution or justice we gotta this. He still lived his whole life bigness person. He's towards the what sixty six or something yeah so. It's like so much damage already done so much so it's really about making a statement for the next fuckers you know but yeah I hope he goes down to obviously go down absolutely an and I think that's one of the main differences between like us. Trump supporters is Bill Clinton goes down. We aren't going to try to defend him but if trump is connected they'll try to defend core. Like how many times have we ever brought up Schneiderman after he got ousted this because you did some gross shit and now you're gone and that's it and we're not sitting here dwelling on how it was like some anti state writing we call for Al Franken's resignation and the Republicans nominated a child rapist to be a senator not somebody who listeners are actually critical that US which I understand their frustration they are saying that we were talking about Al <hes> for the photograph and they you know listener. I made a good case about how the worst thing that Al did might have been apologizing for something that made it seem like he did more because it seems like in the photograph that they're referring to like supposedly he's not touching her and like I think if he did something then yes it was a joke but yeah I was a bit right and and you know I e exactly but I think my point is is to say that we don't come down on people for either me too stuff for child pornography. Whatever it is is is just so backwards and so wrong exactly and the fact that ready to replace him like you said someone that was like worse? It's like it's a really delicate dance like in this case I think they should go down across the board but there are some cases whereas Liberal Party it doesn't flicked sometimes more damage because how hypocritical the other party is just undo all the justice. We're trying to do by replacing them with someone like that so I wasn't well. I wasn't insinuating. I'm sorry if I miscommunicated this that Roy Moore didn't replace Alfred. I'm just urged him to be. We got rid of Al Franken for a joke doc and they ran a pedophile and they're running again continues. Yes thank you for the clarification because you're still stands yeah yeah they replaced him with a female Roy will not replace. Can you imagine a bunch of his potential constituents just sitting there praying for him to win the election yeah well. I mean some of them believed the accusations cost him. Yeah believes that I've just saying right right. I mean that has to happen because his base supported him even after admitting that maybe there's some truth to the allegations but they said they would rather support him because to have another person in the office. That's going to be pro abortion pro choice. That's is to use what's worse for them. Yeah then their kids being and maybe they are ineffective but this is so much bigger. It's it's they're contributing to rape culture in a negative way by thinking that they're saving the moral value of something else. It's like it's just my daughter. Just don't kill the fetus but of course they wouldn't actually say you can read my daughter but I'm like how do you not see that this is encouraging of that behavior and your child could be affected by living in this fucked up world early sanctioning it right yeah yeah and in their minds to they just they. They've done their own religious. Just moral cost benefit analysis on this guy being a frigging teenage Kid yes sex R Kelly. His music is so good and he's a black powerful man so I was going to lean into that instead of the fact that he's damaging the lives of young women. Yeah that's just they really weighing out the you know bad with the worse and I say fuck it all right yeah no. That's what got them into this situation but yeah it's like. It's is not a joke like dude. You're single. You can have sex with whoever you want. He's like no no that would be yeah. It's it's a crazy world hashtag not all people but there's a lot of people out there. For Real I know I watch a lot of forensic files and how are their nineteen seasons with thirty four episodes of peace. There just fucked up. I hate that show watching a bit of it and you're like dude. I stayed awake in bed for like an hour and a half. I had to tell L. myself like okay Jordan. It's okay to process that people get murdered. Just sit there and just accept it to be one of the worst ones I've ever seen off L. Escape. That's fucking awful yeah. That was pretty bad. <hes> sorry okay. Arts community entity gives us good for me yeah yeah. There's you know we gotta get people. I do love our community. If you're a patriot and you're in the closed facebook group it is the coolest group of people and and if you're not just people are just like only facebook and I respect that but I'll see on twitter on the flip side but the cooling is if you ever need anything. There's somebody in that group. That's an expert at it like it's a great. It's not just like a cool like group like minded people that good networking working yeah. What was that slogan together? We know everything together. We know every ten and we'll get it right eventually. DIG It so Jerry Nadler. He's the what is he the House Judiciary Chair. He's asking for clarification on hope Hicks testimony because a bunch of Michael Cohen documents warrants were unredacted. They removed the black bars because the judges like well. If you're shutting down this investigation I'm releasing their to the public not cool and he didn't say this isn't cool but I felt like that was his feeling right. I'm <unk>. I'm assigning bias to a judge. That's bad but yeah so Nadler is like well and that if that's the case because hope Hicks in her testimony besides saying I have blanket immunity or absolute immunity one hundred fifty five times besides that she actually did say that she was was not present during conversations between Cohen and trump or or about any present present for any conversation about the hush money payments and the these records these search warrants tell a different story she was on the phone and part of these conversations nations in texts and emails and I think she's going to be able to get off on a technicality just like Jeff sessions. Did we're Jeff Sessions said I thought you were asking me not just if I had any contact with Russians I've out you're asking me if I was discussing sanctions and colluding being in talking about election interference with Russians. That's what I thought you meant and unfortunately when she asked the question she asked if she was present during any of those conversations and hope Hicks is probably going to be able to say I wasn't present. I was on the phone exactly yeah surprised if now they wanted me in a criminal referral yeah <hes> and because then you can ask her the follow up question alright. Were you on the phone for any of those conversations and would you mind telling us what you talked about right right now. We know you had him. It's a matter of public record and I feel select the judiciary knew this. They knew what was behind those reductions because when she asked Ripley asked she was like. Are you sure you're telling me that you weren't pregnant friend. WHO's cover? Are you sure think about your answer. You know she yes like she knew and so I I think they had access to this unless you're some like crazy mind game. They do ask that a lot. Totally the do ask like are your shirt. Do you assure you want to say that. I don't know lease background Bush Dino. She's a prosecutor cuter in her background. I don't know I don't think so. I'd have to look it up but I don't think so but I mean it was a great line of questioning definitely joe go easy on her because she's High Lake. Let her be hot Felon Bay. She can still be hot yeah. They exist modeling contract contractor. They get out like yeah. Put Her in there but I hope they don't like get blinded by like that at all. Your hotness hot fill in Bay is the Swimming Pool Epstein demanded he have access to that makes his writer this hard firm Bain Nice Underage Lady Lagoon. Oh so gross liberations are fun though I mean if you're GonNa if you <hes> so there's a a new asylum rule that's being piloted in two locations on along the Rio Grande Right <hes> and <hes> I guess they're what they're saying Jordan. What are they saying? What's this new rule? Yes so mark Morgan is one that was coming out and talking about it. He's acting customs and Border Protection Commissioner. He came in on Thursday and he said that this new rule is in the piloting phase. Although there's no reports from people that actually work in asylum saying that they've been seeing it being piloted loaded but what is supposed to do so. It's a rule that's coming out of the departments of Justice and Homeland Security and with limited exceptions is supposed to prohibit migrants who have resided or quote transited enroute unquote to <hes> any third country from seeking asylum in the U._S.. So basically it sounds like anyone that's coming from a country that does not directly border the United States essentially so we're going to accept desailly's from Canada and Mexico e yeah. That's that's what it sounds like. It doesn't doesn't go very much into the logistics of that or like if someone I don't know flies over here from another country or something or like I don't it doesn't go into all those details but <hes> essentially they're saying that they're trying to do this to dramatically dramatically like it sure amass typically new word pointing pointing at her mouth and surprised that came out of it doesn't just went so rogue difficult ethically it just blows off mouth is attached to the brain. We're very credible reporters here. <hes> trump wouldn't even stop to correct himself word now deal with it true and then fucking because everything's fucked it would be in Webster Lake like two years right next to Hella and selfish exactly dramatically. I don't even whatever so it's supposed to lower lower. The number of migrants that they're seeing at the border across the board is what they're saying is the goal of this <hes> but obviously it is targeting a very specific region of people that asylum-seeking rights essentially would just be taken away and and I assume that makes it then illegal by this declaration to come here and present yourself for asylum from Honduras for example. I don't know if it would be illegal legal there if they would just say no. I think it would just be no but Ozo- because I'm afraid that that would be their reason for detention. You know right. Yeah I mean. A._C._L._U.'s already just like waiting for this to start you know so they can sue in court yeah. I'm sure I lost it will drop tomorrow Yeah Yeah and a lot of experts are predicting that there's no way the courts are going to let this go through so <hes> it's just so anticipated coal to like everything that our entire immigration system the good parts of it are supposed to to represent and what's left of the Mark Morgan is not the guy who says he can tell by looking at a child's is that they're going to be an M._s. thirteen when they get older. I think that's that Guy Disgusting Winner Yeah <hes> let's see what else happened today or this weekend. The U._S. shot down on an Iranian drone over the Strait of Hormuz and that's escalating tensions in the area obviously there that straight of Hormuz is pretty tense area region anyway so what the navy ship the U._S. boxer Iranian drone came within a thousand feet of it and I don't think they shot it down <hes> <hes> there's a couple of different weapons you can use on the deck of a ship to shoot steph down like a see whiz or whatever but I don't think they did that. I think from what I understood they use some sort of technological weapon to disable it which just caused it to crash into the ocean so there's that hat and that's all over the news <hes> and I think that's on the heels of of what a tanker U._k.. Tanker being taken over by Iranians or something like that they can just all sorts of stuff going on <hes> at escalating tensions <hes> and God. God I hope there's I hope there's not a war yeah in every day. I'm like are we there yet. Cool it'd be like Bolton wants to start one and he's always his mustache wants to start another. Yeah Man. He's half man half must have must yeah I I called my reps at this number right down everybody to o two two two four three one to one you call them giving your Zip Code. They connect you to your Rep's office and <hes> I told him to. Please not take us to war. You know what I did that same 'cause I. John Oliver was encouraging it and he's really good at like getting people to do shit and I just wanted it was about Iran to you. Oh cool yeah yeah because it's been like bubbling for a while but I did this a few weeks ago but hell yes do you call your Reps. Do you give that number. Two guys hit on you. That's mark. Oh my gosh killing shorten Cobra enjoyed in the country ginger with Jordan. Okay what's going on in Jordan. Oh my God earning. I hope and I mean everything's since ripped up the the nuclear deal which was working which he admitted was working when he basically said that today it was like a month ago but he said today eh they went over what was in their agreement and so then it's like oh so they've been following it right. <hes> you just didn't authorize it exactly what also really troubles me about the new cycle that happens like <hes> a few weeks ago when there there was a video of you know allegedly like Iran taking off one of their minds from the boat I remember that yeah so when all of that was going on and it was all these competing theories in news organizations coming out with one one story then changing it hours later there was really no resolution. I don't think I don't think if that for the American public which is I think most people were like <hes> yeah. I don't believe that right but it's like considering this could very well be his his next goal for the next four years. God forbid if he gets elected <hes> this is something that we need to be really diligent about understanding sort of what any sort conclusive evidence exists yes for. They're doing Florida. I would look for it before the election win elections yeah oh totally so yeah fear. Bring this country together. Not I don't agree with that so this is a fat. It's like yeah yeah because if the goal is to get reelected then yes also that it because it shields him from being charged with crime right. It's hard to get a new president in the middle of wartime because people you know they don't want that shakiness of the transition whole campaign slogan like keep me out of jail yeah electric that's great but he's like I mean he could very well be turning into sort of career oligarch right so a lot of people get out of the White House and then that's why Ted Cruz in A._S._C. had that rare moment of agreement upon having a law that says that people can't be after they get out because is trump will be the biggest lobbyists them to come out of that doing so much damage while he's here but imagine what he'll do once he's out of the public but still influential. It's going to be fucking crazy totally so even if you can't successfully take us to war before the election even if it happens after he gets still benefit greatly from all of the contracts and Yuck and just a Mile Lagos are like are friggin trump allies that we have now we have to remember when he goes away the people who chanted send her back or still here yeah and also our allies the country's allies we no longer really had them to the same standards and Obama was here so that might not just come back because he's gone. They might just be like we're not forever. I hope that it does I hope that the everyone sort of waiting for him to leave so they can. We just get back to normal right yeah. frigging people are like I forget which person it was <hes>. I think it was there. I'm not gonNA miss speak it was it was an official though of Iran that was like I'm not I'm not going to negotiate. I'm not even GonNa talk talked to this dude. He's like there's no point even talking to him yeah. They're they're literally overtly saying like I will not negotiate with this person and it's not I won't negotiate with the United States that dude. I'm not talking to that. Do that's fair. Yeah I mean I don't I wouldn't I wouldn't either yeah yeah totally but I hope it gets better. God Vote People Vote Yeah Yeah <hes> another pedophile closely associated with trump George Nader he was hit with superseding indictments three of them three charges for obscenity child transportation child pornography so he was already hit up with those I think twelve or so many counts of <hes> possessing child pornography for having those videos on his phone when when it was confiscated by Muller and <hes> the minute he set foot back in the country they've nabbed him but the now the they found they have evidence that he transported a child from Europe to the United States and took him to his hat and took this boy to his house to for sexual reasons so he louise yeah supported a point play right yeah dip fourteen F for ten sanity for context because this will be the first time people are tuning in. Can you give a quick rundown of Nader and his role in some of the key things his biggest thing was he participated in that August third <hes> Twenty Sixteen in trump tower meeting between Joel Zamel and some folks from the trump campaign and Zamel was the guy who worked for PSI group who wrote up <hes> these I guess they were proposals for how they could manipulate social media to win the election and the trump campaign says they never used his plans than with a paid for right after the election exactly nater transferred two million dollars to him and it wasn't Nader's two million dollars because nature is only worth three million. That's a lot to put up your own fine and two of its in cryptocurrencies Yeah Yeah Oh my goodness but he's got a long history of this George Nader of sexual abuse minors <hes> raping kids like the worst stuff you could possibly child pornography yeah yeah. It's really really bad I really I read those charging undocument- he's worse than Epstein and I can't believe I'm saying that he's actually worse than Epstein yeah well. He was what he did. I mean they're all God awful but like if there are levels to this evil shit yet mater is the worst for sure at least the worst I've seen yeah and this whole mall moderate Yeah Yeah Fair enough. I'm sure there's some sick fuck out. There is like a whole beer. I don't want to know about that. I didn't even want to read those charging documents yeah I can't I need brain bleach Jordan. What's up with <hes> your your liberal paper straws? Oh Yeah so <hes> the trump campaign has an adorable merchandise idea right now where they <hes> sent out an email blast to their email list folks and said <hes> basically the liberal snowflake papers trouser bullshit. You could buy this pack of ten Donald Trump plastic straws for fifteen dollars. I do think paper straws or bullshit. It's the first thing I've agreed with but know who's going to buy this shit yeah. <hes> <hes> probably Scott Pruitt. I just think yeah I think it's hilarious that they're going to spend fifteen dollars on ten plastic straws to own the libs yeah trump's themes dries. I can see how some trump would be like this to my collection collection of like my trumpy bearing leg. I'm sure they have other getting ripped off to own US and they've been doing this like lighting their nikes on fire yeah already paying for them or what are we breaking their curic machines or something. Oh Yeah <unk> damaging their own stuff in this case are gaining something. I'll give them that you know. They get something for your money that way. They'll concept is they're being fucked over by trump. WHO's overpricing straws his trumpet? I don't even understand how it's legal for him to brand presidential merchandise. That's already ready legal but he we're so far past that you know it's like yeah. It might be campaign funds then that's probably how he gets around it. You can sell whatever you want to campaign yeah and he started running the day after he was inaugurated as the first time I've ever happened to you. Insanity Brad Pascale said <hes> I'm so overpay straws and I'm sure you are too much like most liberal ideas paper straws don't work and they fall apart instantly. That's fine. That's why we just launched our latest product official trump straws now you can finally be free. Reform Liberal paper straws that fall apart within minutes in ruin your drink paper or whatever those are called right those things that the carcinogens and plastic bottles Oh yes. It's probably food yeah one hundred percent. I'm sure this was a direct deal with Walmart and it was like in a factory using diesel fuel my wish there fucking here on that stuff and they sit there and they're so brainwashed like fucking trouser target target their bullshit but like just sip from the glass. That's what I do like. Don't fucking by trump straw but I get how it's it's totally an easy target polluting. We're not perfect but we're we're doing it for the right reasons like I don't. I'm not against paper refused to use wind but I'm so glad they exist because if you wanNA draw their bullshits stainless steel that's what's up. It's better for the environment. Yes also other like biodegradable stuff that kind of resembled plastic more doesn't turn into like disgusting tree motion your drink yeah on second. I don't know I like it. It does it does seem like a <hes> insignificant story sort of just like a cute headline but there is some sort of good stuff like you said number one your how are you able to put your A._G.. said it how do you put his name on on sell it like presidential merchandise because he got all that pushback when he wanted to make the coin yet fucking yeah and then so he's doing that and then on top of that. It's just a ridiculous issue peddling of Anti Environment Airman yes. It's like so hardy over like yeah police making the environment. A partisan thing is horrifying. It's like no literally we're GONNA die like all the heat act people white people fuck it like ever ever going to politicize like okay they wanted to you know make sure the oil companies were making money and they didn't want to hurt the economy and then they started saying of course the temperatures increasing but it's not because of people that's a hoax yeah. They're just flat out. Fuck the environment. I'm GONNA record yet. They don't even give a fuck because they have so much like I guess momentum when it comes to these surface level issues of just hating the libs somehow still loving the planet go fuck. It is weird seriously. I know they were so satisfied with themselves. When I thought of that metaphor definitely like Oh man they were waiting for some product to come from the environment that would be like not perfect weird stance but you know uh-huh solving your dream? I'll give you that does if you nurture drink. It can be tough also paper. Mills are incredibly blue collared as well which is kind of a big slap in their face yeah of the papermill workers. We'll bring your plastic jobs. I just yeah it's a it's a very good example in a way of trump showing hypocrisy in short sightedness and it's just a weird stance. It's a metaphor the trump mhm strasser almost like a metaphor in themselves like yeah we will kill the earth just to own the lips yup yeah basically and we'll pay for it and we'll pay for made in China. Have we checked the sea turtles pay hey for it would kind of be a good thing for them to do is send everybody a check for like ninety six cents and say it's for Mexico for you. That would be like their pay or something like just really get into it. There you go yeah yeah just male supporters or just a brick. That's Mexico paid for this and started on me twenty dollars a ship right yeah Roger Stone's yeah. It's not logical. She still only motion. I didn't think this through stones are really heavy. Yes yes he's thinking oh stones are cheap all right my name on them and sell them. I'll make a crapload of money should be used to ship show on thirty rock like gold gold case where they had to guess which case was full of gold and the model couldn't hold it up right. Oh my gosh that's so funny. Shut it down. It was like dealer no dealer something gold or no gold. It is pretty great all right guys. We're GONNA be right back.

It is time for our call to Action Segment Hashtag. So if you're on social media you may have seen the Hash tag free reality winner and that spearheaded by reality winters mom billy J winner Davis or at B._J.. Winner Davis on twitter so reality. Lee Winner is a former air forced linguist and intelligence contractor that served honorably in the air force and she'd never been convicted of a crime before but while working for the N._S._A.. As a contractor in May of two thousand seventeen <hes> that's the day trump fired Komi. She printed out a report from her work computer `puter detailed hacking attacks against local election officials in voter databases in over twenty one states in the U._S.. So a few days later she smuggled it out of the office in her pantyhose and she sent it to the intercept. That's a media that and the F. B.. I. Arrested or two days before the report was published after being denied bail four times <hes> and held in a small county jail in rural Georgia for over a year reality changed her plea to guilty and agreed to a plea deal that landed her the longest sentence ever for a crime of this type in the United. States the prosecutors recommended sixty three months and the judge obliged and the problem there is that normally federal cases based their sentencing on damage to national security <hes> and she pleaded guilty in June of two thousand eighteen after being held for over a year in prison and as we said and she did apologize took responsibility for her actions <hes> and U._S. Attorney Bobby L. Christine a trump appointee said winners purposeful violation put our nation's security at risk and caused exceptionally grave damage to U._S. national security but did it because according to Robert Cat natch a former D._O._J.. Lawyer in the Civil Division he says that in this case no one's identity was revealed and no one was endangered and despite that and her honorable service they handed down the longest sentence ever imposed in a federal court for unauthorized release of government information to the media at like for example in twenty three twenty thirteen former F._b._i.. Agent got forty three months for a leak of a foiled bomb plot in Yemen to the Associated Press that same year a C._I._A.. Agent was given thirty months for revealing the identity of an undercover agent like blue cover in two thousand fifteen a former C._i._A.. Agent got forty two months for leaking secret opt to disrupt Iran's nuclear program to the New York Times so this is just a sentence or it doesn't seem like it seems retaliatory right. It seems like an attempt to silence information about the Russian hacking operation because that threatens the legitimacy of trump's election first of all and perhaps retaliation for her frustration with trump's firing of Komi which you know meets the federal manual criteria materia for obstruction of justice when he fired by the way so in his press release on the day of Winter Sentencing <hes> U._S.. Attorney Christine Bobby Christine indicated that the sentence was meant to be harsh enough to send a deterrent to any other whistle blowers out there and the judge in the case even verbally expressed that there was no doubt reality winner would never see the inside of a courtroom again these statements themselves indicate the her sentence was not just <hes> but the D._O._J.. And this administration appears very pleased with the manner in which reality winner has been treated and her harsh sentence for over over five over five years in prison so much so that earlier this year at an at an Annual D._O._J.. Awards banquet those involved in securing this record breaking sentence. We're given awards. I didn't know you had awards for this. <hes> realities mother Billie Winner Davis acknowledges fully that her daughter violated her oath and contract by releasing classified documents in the manner in which she did but her treatment and the sentence <hes> forgiving US proof of threats to our democracy appear to be disproportionate and clearly a result of of an overzealous prosecution meant to silence. It's anyone who brings out the truth about Russian election Gary <hes> because trump is so too thick skinned so a police had to stand with reality dot org to sign the petition and Checkout Hash Tag Free Reality Winner on Social Media and vote blue and twenty twenty so we we can partition a new reasonable administration that recognizes the importance of alerting the public to Russian election interference to maybe commute her sentence yeah she. She's incredibly brave for what she did because she had to know she was up against an unusual administration and I think that's even more brave and throws me off the giving thing award. It's like it's like a razzies like worse foreign actors something like what do they even kind of award you give a piece of shit like that a law enforcement award probably but it's just that's awful yeah congratulations on your awesome prosecution and long sentencing dancing yeah basically I'm like imagining a full-blown awards ceremony the lighting and everything yeah same same porn awards hosted by trees yeah exactly God. Here's our yes the sheriff of Little Rock what's so bad yeah. Tom Hanks this year. Yeah that's weird. I was reading that article. I came across that and I was like what award infinity that's terrifying. They reward that sort of X.. Fascism it and yet I wonder what's the buzz word for it but yeah I just thought that she's in there for five years for what she did. Is it it blows and her and her mom acknowledge you know hey broke the law but MHM sixty three months. She'd one guy got forty two months for outing in an agent exactly yeah you can see the double standard here. It's very clear that could get somebody killed. I don't I can't think of any thing that Sh- national security that will could've killed his career. Yeah Yeah I guess so. What state did this happen again? Georgia Georgia. Oh Georgia is not really winning. This is last year's they haven't been right. That seems like something that should in what what was the court like what circuit or or like what level did it like move up and he sort of level of appeals do you know. They said that she couldn't appeal it essentially right just because she pleaded guilty and agreed okay so that they can mean yeah because I think it's they get like you said. I think it's really plead guilty and then yeah it seems like something that should be handled in a higher court by something else like some other organizations U._S.. Attorney Federal Court yeah. I don't know I guess I just want something more than just like the court of Georgia no offense Georgia national security thing right so what's the U._S.. Attorney's office yeah so it's federal got it southern district of New York but in Georgia Guy Kinda okay cool seems wrong. I'm with Jordan of course it doesn't feel right and there is more they can do yeah. I just imagine that all of these cases would be handled in like D._c.. Or something in some super official representative of the entirety of the American freighter espionage case out pretty quickly quickly they seem they they somehow yes. She admitted it but like they fuck man but yeah I think I think what they do. Is they prosecute where the in the U._S. Attorney's office in the district where the crime was committed. Yeah they have an office there jurisdiction totally under jurisdictional rules or something like that yeah because yeah that's a big word five years and they started last year or June. Two thousand eighteen is when she pleaded guilty okay and she's already there. He's been there. I don't know she got time served for her year that she suspending. They don't give her that that's fucking insane. She got time served. Yes she's a longer sentence a manafort then yeah wow by the time she gets out and that's that's a very good point longer than Cohen Yeah. They'll they'll probably be new president but like fuck it someone part in her on there by chance. If we elect a new administration we can petition to have her sentence or needs to be someone campaign platform years her mom yeah put it on their fascism. This is so fucked yeah.

He defending himself as pressure builds for him to resign. I'm Noel Well King here with Rachel Martin and this is up I from N._p._R.. News also why is one of the biggest teachers unions suing the Department of Education. The Department of Education just cannot seem to get this right. We'll bring you exclusive N._p._R.. We are reporting on a new lawsuit against the student loan. Forgiveness program and Britain warns that Iranian vessels tried to block British commercial oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz what now for the increasingly tense relations between Iran the U._S. and its allies. Stay with us.

Alex Acosta is defending plea deal that he oversaw nearly a dozen years ago as a U._S.. Attorney in Florida now yeah that deal allowed the financier Jeffrey Epstein to avoid federal charges for sexually abusing young girls in a press conference yesterday. Acosta said his office handled the case right. I know that in two thousand nineteen looking back on two thousand eight things may look different but this was the judgment of prosecutors with dozens of years of experience people started looking at that plea deal again when prosecutors in New York Charge Epstein with sex trafficking last weekend we've. We've got N._P._R.'s lead political editor Domenico Montanaro with us this morning High Dominica Good Morning Rachel so the Secretary of Labor Alex Kosta spoke for almost an hour yesterday. What else did he say is that it was difficult? Case in Epstein was going to be essentially let off the hook ah if he didn't intervene so let's listen to part of his justification. There is a value to a short guilty plea because letting him walk letting what the State Attorney was ready to do. Go forward forward would have been absolutely off now. Acosta said that he wasn't going to roll the dice on not getting a conviction he wanted Epstein to go to jail he wanted to register as a sex offender even though the sentence being very light and the man who was that Palm Beach County State Attorney at the time is now saying that a cost his recollection was completely wrong that he had an indictment prepared but was abandoned after secret negotiations between epsteins lawyers and Acosta but it gets more tangled because in the big Miami Herald store all this last year you might remember the police involved at the time who were going after Epstein actually blamed that same Palm Beach County State Attorney for pressuring them to downgrade the charges or drop the case altogether a tangled Web <hes> <hes> to be sure so let's talk about the political implications of this. I mean we know there's been a lot of pressure from Democrats pointing to Acosta and saying you gotta quit <hes> putting pressure on the president to fire him but the Labor secretary has also had some MHM critics on the right well yeah I mean there haven't been many on capitol. Hill all say that they've been mostly defending him in sticking by the president's line but there have been reports that the president's chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney was unhappy with the cost for not being more aggressive in dismantling some of these Obama obama-era workplace regulations and a cost of dismissed that tension though yesterday saying that Mulvaney told them to quote say that any talk of problems between them is quote B._S.. So this is such a horrible story a really when you sit and you read the details all of it and <hes> it makes you wonder if if there's any political cost for for the President I mean when they're such universal a disgust with these allegations does the president bear political cost of he keeps a cost around. Well look you know he's the producer and chief and you know there's lots of reporting that he wanted a cost to actually do this press conference to show that you know that he could handle this <hes> he didn't apologize to victims and trump doesn't like people who apologize Vice President Mike Pence gave a kind of tepid statement afterwards yesterday saying that he serves at the pleasure of the president has all the cabinet members and we're in this odd situation where president trump himself was friends with Jeffrey Epstein some years ago before he says they had a falling out and it's notable that former president Bill Clinton did as well so we'll see where any of this winds up going or if any of that sticks N._p._R.'s Domenico Montanaro thank you you're welcome okay the British navy a saying that it was able to stop and Iranian paramilitary vessels from blocking the passage of a British commercial ship in the Strait of Hormuz. Yeah this is notable because there has been a lot going on in the Strait of Hormuz recently including awesome attacks on oil tankers. It's a tense time between Iran and other world powers especially the United States president trump pulled the U._s. out of the Iran nuclear agreement last year and he recently imposed new sanctions on Iran right. So what does this latest alleged move by Iran. I mean for all of that. We've got Washington Post reporter Aaron Cunningham on the line with us from Dubai Aaron. Thanks for being with us. I think so much. What more can you tell us about what happened? Though it's unclear exactly what happened but what the British government is saying is that these Iranian vessels there were three of them they approached the tanker the British heritage that had been in the Persian Gulf and was traveling through the Strait of Hormuz and attempted to stop it now the tanker was being escorted by a British navy ship and so they were able to that ship that escort was was able to signal to the Iranians that that they should turn away and and they did and it was able. To pass safely after that <hes> from from the U._S. side you know some U._S.. Officials were saying that the Iranians had attempted to seize the vessel but it's just not clear that that's what happened. <hes> it may have been sort of they wanted to <hes> you know make a point harass the ship <hes> in the waterway and so that's where we stand right now and this is not happening in a vacuum obviously as Noel alluded to it some level this is all about the Iran nuclear deal and Iran continuing continuing to agitate the United States which pull out of the deal but also trying to pressure the current signatories to the deal to live up to their end of the bargain and give Iran the financial benefits that thinks it deserves so how how is this likely I mean this was a British tanker. How is it likely to change Britain's Calculus on Iran and the nuclear deal? I'm not entirely sure that it will and with you know with the United Kingdom they've been sort of in the middle between <hes> the hardline U._S. position and sort of the softer European position that you know has been emphasizing diplomacy and wants to sort of you know keep keep Iran in the fray and and within the deal now the U._K.. Is is committed to the nuclear agreement and it has said that on multiple occasions but it's also been a bit more forceful in condemning what it says are sort of malign Iranian activities in the Persian Gulf in in the Strait of Hormuz so I think that you'll see sort of a harder harder line from the U._k.. After this but it's not clear that they will support you know extra sanctions for example or if they will you know skill their own commitments under the nuclear deal as well Aaron Cunningham from the Washington Post <hes>. Thank you very much for being with us this morning. We appreciate it thank you what are the biggest teachers unions in. This country is suing the U._S.. Department of Education that's right N._p._R.. Obtained The complaint exclusively and it alleges that a student loan forgiveness program is in such shambles that it's actually illegal now. This program is supposed to forgive student loans for people who've worked ten years in public service jobs but for a lot of people that is not what's happening. N._P._R.'s Chris Arnold has been covering this story uncovered it in the first place and he's with us now. Hey Chris Rachel so just tell us more about this suit who's filing it and why well the American Federation of Teachers Filing it but this goes far beyond teachers this involves the Public Service Loan forgiveness program which was created by Congress a decade ago and it was created to encourage public service service so government and nonprofit work. That's police officers Nurses Peace Corps volunteers. All kinds of jobs government made a promise basically if you work for ten years in public service and you make ten years alone payments the government will forgive the rest of your federal student loans which is like a great France the the problem is that only one percent of people who do this track. They do it for ten years to make these payments that go to get approved. Only one percent get approved. Everybody's getting reject us so people who took certain jobs with the entire intention attention of of getting their student debt race after ten years they are not getting the help they thought they would exactly and we talked to Christopher Peterson as a former top attorney at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. He says if you could get all of these people who are getting rejected acted into one place basically you'd have football stadiums full of nurses firefighters teachers law enforcement officers that are seeking to have their debts forgiven having made all of these is payments under the impression that they were on track and are now. They're being turned away in droves so you know that's pretty bad and it's sparking a lot of outcry a bunch of lawsuits well. What's the justification I mean? Why aren't those loans getting forgiven well? What one big problem is that to get loan? Forgiveness things get a little complicated and you have to be in the right type of federal loan and the right type of repayment plan and people are saying that will look. I called my Loan Servicing Company. I call it eight hundred number on my statement and I got bad. What information they never told me I needed to change into this kind of loan and then ten years later they find out oops? You Know Oh sorry nothing we can do now. We talked to Debbie Baker. WHO's a music teacher in Tulsa Oklahoma? This happened to her. She says she got stuck with seventy six thousand thousand dollars that she thought was about to be forgiven and when this hit I just I didn't know whether to cry. Throw up. Get Mad. I just didn't know what to do. I honestly did not think the federal government would do this to someone so what happens <unk> to someone like Debbie I mean is this lawsuit now going to make a difference for her and her debt well. She's a plaintiff so quite possibly who knows but for everybody else the lawsuits trying to get the department to come up with an appeals process that could work for lots and lots of people <hes> we we should say that the Department of Education recently implemented a dramatic fix to a different program which which we reported on the teach grant program and that now is returning grant money to thousands of people who had grants taken away on fairly so fixes are possible is the Department of Education anything about this so far. The lawsuits just being filed this morning that they don't have a comment yet all right N._p._R.'s Chris Arnold for us this morning on this lawsuit against the Department of Education Chris.

Navy downed one of its drones yesterday. This is what's news from the Wall Street Journal. I'm Kim Gittleson. Let's get started now before we get into our main story of the morning why we works co founder Adam Newman cash out more than seven hundred million dollars. Here's what you missed yesterday yesterday. President Trump said the U._S. forces on the U._S._S. boxer shot down Iranian drone in the Strait of Hormuz. This is the latest of many provocative and hostile actions by Iran against vessels operating in international waters. Sh now Iran is denying that it lost a drone in a tweet this morning Iran's deputy foreign minister said quote. I am worried that the U._S. boxer has shot down their own drone by mistake and Microsoft reported record quarterly revenue after after the bell yesterday most of what was driving that record gains in its cloud computing business from San Francisco as Fitch has more since the the arrival of the the C._E._o.. The New C._E._O.. Not New anymore but <hes> since. She doesn't fourteen <unk>. The company has really transformed itself from coming to tied to the success or failure Windows operating system largely a two one. That's much more diversified much more enmeshed in the the the cloud computing world that opportunity so yeah I mean in the past decade or so in especially in the past five years or so. It's really kind of become a different company and investors rewarded that I mean it's it's worth now born. The trillion dollars the style of a company in the world shares a Microsoft traded up over two percent and after hours trading and the name Scalia might ring a bell the former Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died in two thousand sixteen now president trump has said he plans ends to nominate Mr scully's son Eugene to lead the Labor Department Eugene Scalia is a partner at the law firm Gibson Dunne and crutcher and is well regarded in the conservative legal community he replaces Alexander Costo who resigned as Labor secretary last week following scrutiny of his role in negotiating a plea deal with the Hedge Fund Manager Jeffrey Epstein in two thousand eight now our main story this morning it has to do with the office company. We work were reporting that even as the company prepares for its I._P._O.. It filed confidential paperwork to go publicly last year. It's CO founder Adam. Newman is cashing out to the tune of seven hundred hundred million dollars to find out more Charlie. Turner has been speaking to Eliot Brown in New York first of all Elliot. How much money did we were CO founder Adam Newman cash out of the company before its I._P._O.? So between loans. Owns and sales of stock. He's taken out over seven hundred million. That's a huge amount you write that he sold some of his stake and borrowed against some of his holdings. When did he do this and also what has he done with the money so he's been doing it relatively gradually gradually <hes> particularly on the sales side at least since twenty fourteen he's been selling in a number of rounds and so what happens is the new investor will come in and and <hes> they'll say we wanna put this much into we work and then they'll start to increase that a bit or they you know we won't be able to accommodate all of it and some of atom the C._E._o.? Will <hes> take some of that and sell his own shares and then he's also borrowed and we're a little unclear on the time line there and we also don't know the breakdown but either way yes. It is a large large amount of money <hes> in the realm of the world of of startups before I._P._O.. <hes> we haven't heard anything so large but they're also not many companies that have ever been this large in their valuation before I._P._O.. What's the valuation currently forty seven billion dollars? Isn't this sort of action frowned upon what Newman did or does it raise suspicions well so yeah. It's it's it's actually part of a broader trend. This certainly bigger number. <hes> what's been years ago venture capitalists capitalists that would fund these tech companies and startups thought it was a really verboten to to actually have these founders cash out early and they wanted them to stay in the company have all their eyes on the I._P._O.. So everyone can make you know have the best lineman. Everyone makes the most money in I._P._O.. Co founder doesn't go off feeling rich and and putting less of their enthusiasm into the company now known as accused atom of not putting enthusiasm into the company but <hes> it certainly is a practice that some of the investors don't love <hes>. Particularly the large size of the amounts that atoms taken out and also is a relatively new thing past five years or so in Silicon Valley overall okay well if somebody asked him why he was doing this. What would he say what's the reasoning? I think he'd probably they say that will throw the question back and say look most of my money and my attention is all still in we work and that's true. Most of his wealth is dealing. We work I think at least if we look at his actions he he likes investing he really enjoys putting money into startups and talk to people who say sometimes. I'll just meet a star. I want to invest in U <hes> so the you know he's spread it around to a few different startups and then he he certainly likes buying homes in that. He's bought at least five of them. <hes> spent over eighty million dollars for in the New York area one last year out here in Marin County called the Guitar House <hes> and so that's a fair amount of homes and those are the ones we know about Elliott. We work with founded nine years ago if I'm not wrong. When does the office space giant plan to go public? It's nothing official. I mean what we understand. Is You know later this year early next they filed confidentially late last year but <hes> that's not a incredibly specific you you know that doesn't provide insight into timing because a company can sort of wait around for awhile but certainly they are making moves to. They're in the process of lining up a multi-billion dollar loan from J. P. Morgan and Golden Sachs which is the type of thing that you want to do before an I._P._O.. To show that your balance sheet is looking better so th they're definitely making moves toward. I understand he's still controls the company after such a large cash out how big is Mr Newman steak and we work so <hes> I it. This one is a little murky. We know it's it's no more than thirty. Eighty percent <hes> and based on the language that the companies made clear before that he's the largest shareholder that means it's probably more than around twenty percent so probably between twenty percent thirty percent but <hes> I it's a bit obscured by l._l._C.'s assume that he shares ownership with others so that's still a very large stake in an incredibly valuable company.

He explains why global central banks are all looking to ease so this week we saw South Korea <hes> Indonesia and South Africa who rates it's sort of announced the patient of rate cuts from the U._S.. Federal Reserve and from the European Central Bank some of these rate cuts this week or expected and some weren't expected but they are a reaction to. Signs that growth in these economies is slowing. We've had some weak G._D._p.. Data from all three countries so the central bank governors are reacting to signs of weakness in the local economy and they also have room to cut because at the end of last share they had actually hiked rates. It's similar to the U._S.. Federal Reserve where we were pricing in rate hikes the end of last year and now we've pivoted to expect in cuts and now the skied here's what to look forward or two later today Boeing said it would set aside five billion dollars to compensate airlines that have suffered because of the prolonged grounding of the seven thirty seven Max from Chicago Boeing's headquarters Doug Cameron explains why it's now having to account for both the coast of compensation to customers who've been affected by the grinding of seven three seven Max as well as Boeing's inability to deliver any planes because of the global grinding also.

The conflict with Iran: How we got here and what could come next

"Really? The conflict with Iran. How we got here. What could come next? This is Dr Jim Dennison's. The daily article podcast Monday, June twenty-fourth twenty nineteen Nick and Liana will Linda safely crossed Times Square last night on a high wire twenty five stories above the pavement, their feet feels like a parable escalating tensions in the Middle East. What has led to the present crisis with Iran? Why would he run ins escalate conflict, with the US, what could come next? And where's got at work as for how we got here to oil, tankers were attacked in the strait of Hormuz recently following attacks on four commercial ships off the coast of the United Arab Emirates last month. The US Saudi Arabia and the UK blame Iran last Monday, Iran stated that it would soon surpass the previously imposed three hundred kilogram limit on its stockpiles of enriched uranium, the Pentagon, then announced plans to send approximately a thousand more troops to the Middle East, quote for defensive purposes to address air naval, and ground base threats in quote, last Thursday. Day Iran shot down. Unmanned US surreal drone, the US claims that the aircraft was in international erase Iran claims that it was flying over their territory later that day, the United States cyber command conducted online attacks against Iranian intelligence group, that American officials believe helped plan the oil taker attacks. This was meant to be a direct response to the downing of the drone as well. President Trump also approved military strikes against Iran in retaliation for the drone attack. Then canceled the strike. However, he announced over the weekend that the US is putting major additional sanctions on Iran on Monday secretary of state Mike Pompeo said yesterday that he wants to build a global coalition against Iran and Iran in military official warned this morning that his country capable of shooting down more American spy drowns now. Why would Iran escalate conflict, Iran's economy is expected to shrink by six percent this year after contracting three point nine percent last year by contrast it grew three point eight percent in twenty. Seventeen before the Trump administration reimposed economic sanctions after withdrawing from the twenty fifteen nuclear deal years of internal economic mismanagement in the renewed sanctions have led the skyrocketing unemployment and inflation rising to near forty percent. Some analysts suggest Iran is escalating aggression in the region because it has less to lose from acting this way than from doing nothing others believe, Iran semi the message that it is capable of undermining US, an Arab Gulf states interest in the region hoping to strengthen its negotiating position still others pointer Iran's repeated threat that if it cannot export oil neither will anybody else according to one political analyst Iran wants to demonstrate that peace and security in the Gulf is contingent on its own economic stability. So what could come next an escalating conflict with Iran could take several forms? If the Iranian military attempts to close the strait of Hormuz through, which thirty percent of the world's oil passes, the US, and other nations could be forced to respond. And if Ron appears to be close to developing nuclear weapons, an attack on its nuclear facilities could be forthcoming. However, a war to overthrow the Iranian regime would require a colossal military operation. The US said one hundred and fifty thousand troops in the initial phase of the two thousand three invasion of arrack and Ron is much larger than arrack, if tensions intensify Iran's proxies in the Middle East could attack Israel, and or Americans Iraq, Syria or elsewhere, Iranian missiles, could target American ships and troops in the area, a conflict between the US Iran would likely escalate to include Israel and Hezbollah Iran's proxy in Lebanon and European nations. Worry about millions of refugees streaming into the continent. If war with Iran breaks out now, let's discuss the history of Iran and God's kingdom. And the power of biblical intercession, Iran was known as Persia until nineteen thirty five. The Persian empire rose to prominence in the sixth century BC liberating Jews from Babylon. Persia is the setting for the first part of Nehemiah and the book of Esther Alexandra the great in the Greeks overthrew, the Persians and ended their entire, however many historians believe that the I who worshiped the infant Christ from Persia and partying and means in elements from the region of Persia were present at Pentecost like that ancient miracle observers say Iran is experiencing, one of the fastest growing underground church movements in the world. Unsurprisingly persecution against Christians in Iran is escalating, as well. We can join God at work in the Middle East through biblical intercession today. We can pray for wisdom for global leaders and for protection for believers in Iran. We can pray for God to redeem this conflict by drawing. Millions of Iranians to Jesus. We can pray for Iran's supreme leader comedy to have a vision of Jesus and come to personal faith in him if you consider such a miracle to be impossible. Remember the axe night conversion of Saul of Tarsus, and we can pray for peace with Justice in Israel and across the Middle East. Andrew Murray wrote it is an intercession for others that are faith and love and perseverance will be stirred up and that the power of the spirit will be found to clips for bringing salve Asian to people will you join God at work in the Middle East today.

That took place this week week. Who Was Qasim Sulejmani? Qasim Sulejmani was an Iranian Major General in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard hardcore since nineteen ninety eight. He commended the cubs force responsible for extra territorial military in Clandestine Operations Secretary of State Mike. Mike pompeo deemed Sulejmani equally as dangerous as Islamic state. Leader Abu Baqer al-Baghdadi in April twenty nineteen. The State Department announced that Iran was responsible for killing six hundred eight American troops during the Iraq war. They deemed that seventeen percent of all. US personnel deaths in Iraq from two thousand in three to two thousand eleven were orchestrated by Sulejmani BBC. l'est notes that Sulejmani was seen as the mastermind behind Iran's vast ambition in the Middle East and the country's real foreign minister when it came to matters of Warren Peace Sulejmani was widely considered a principal architect. The President Bashar al-Assad war in Syria the ongoing conflict in Iraq the fight against Islamic state and many battles beyond according to CNN. An the significance of Solomon's death cannot be overstated analyst for MSNBC calls him the world's number one bad guy he states that the killing killing of Sulejmani means much more in terms of saving current lives than even the deaths of Osama bin Laden and Isis founder Abu Bekir al-Baghdadi what led to the attack in June twenty nineteen the Iranian shutdown in American surveillance drone three months later a barrage of missiles and drones targeted two of the world's most important oil facilities in Saudi Arabia last Friday the US blamed an Iranian backed militia for for an attack that killed a US contractor and wounded for US servicemembers on Sunday the US carried out airstrikes that were said to have killed at least twenty five live militia members demonstrators including members of that Iranian backed militia then stormed the US embassy compound in Baghdad.

As God's the people is to pray for our leaders and to work for both justice and peace while seeking to lead all people to the Prince of peace as CS Lewis notes. God God cannot give us happiness and peace apart from himself because it is not there there is no such thing we cannot give the world what we do not have in these. He's Tremolos Times.

"Iran's leaders are furious in speech overnight. President Hudson Ruhani called the White House, quote, mentally retarded for imposing new sanctions on Iran. I'm Rachel Martin along with Noel king. And this is up. I from NPR news. In the meantime, US officials say they're building a coalition to protect shipping in the Persian Gulf. What kind of threat does Iran pose in the Gulf lawyers visiting holding facility for migrant children were stunned by the living conditions. They were hungry dirty. They were sick. They were scared. Now, those children have been relocated. How many others are facing similar conditions at other facilities? Plus Oklahoma divvied up. It's eighty five million dollar opioid settlement.

President Trump has put new sanctions on Iran and Iran is upset president Hudson Ruhani, criticized those sanctions, and he called the White House, quote, mentally retarded. So that's a low. The dialogue has gotten between these two countries. A spokesman for Iran's foreign ministry described the consequences of the sanctions, as a quote, permanent closure of the path of diplomacy. This comes as the Trump administration is calling on US allies to help in the Persian Gulf days after President Trump called off deadly airstrikes on, on the administration says it is now building an international coalition to try and protect Persian Gulf shipping lanes. That's not far from the Gulf of Oman, where the US says, Iran attacked two oil tankers a couple of weeks ago. President Trump still says military action against Iran is an option of restraint has been shown by us. A lot of restraint and that doesn't mean we're gonna show it in the future. NPR's Tom Bowman has been watching all of this. Covers the Pentagon. Good morning, Tom. Good morning oil. Okay. So the administration says it wants an international coalition in the Persian Gulf. What would that look like? What would its mission be? Well, first of all, we don't know what the international coalition will look like or exactly what its mission would be other than it's called a maritime security mission. Some are using the word sentinel for this, and it could take several forms. You could have ships actually escort oil tankers, and containerships as a heading through the strait of Hormuz or you could just have navy ships in the area kind of keeping an eye on things. And there were already a few US ships in the area as well as drones, of course similar to the ones shut down by the Iranians and they're also surveillance planes there right now as well. So very much a work in progress at this point. But the point of this would be that the US is not going it alone. Have any other countries signed onto this agreement or suggest. That they think it's a good idea. Not they haven't signed onto it. Yet, does some countries saying, of course, it's a good idea to protect shipping going through the strait of Hormuz where we're about twenty percent of the world trade goes through. But, you know, secretary state might palm Pao's in the Middle East trying to get some support from several countries for this effort. In also acting defense, Qatari, Mike Espy, heading to NATO this week and clearly that maritime security mission will come up in his meetings with the NATO countries. But again, no firm commitments from any country is point. But they do officials expect some countries to sign up. They did this would be a pretty interesting international effort. Is there any precedent for this is the US done something like this before in the Gulf? You know they have a four years ago. The navy took part, US navy took part in a coming US in British flagships after Ron sees the crew of. Tanker ship flagged under the Marshall Islands. This has to of all things financial dispute in that company effort lasted about a little over a week, and then no. Well, there was something called operation earnest will back in the nineteen eighties that lasted about a year, and that was part of an effort, the American military to protect Kuwaiti owned tankers from Orion attacks. And that was all wrapped up in what was called the Tanka wars during the Iran Iraq war in interestingly, that was the largest naval convoy operation since World War Two, however, we're not looking at anything at all like that. K NPR's, Tom Bowman Tom, thanks so much. You oh come Noel. Alright US customs and border patrol has moved more than three hundred immigrant children from a holding facility in Texas. Yeah. This comes after team of immigration lawyers. Pitta, visit that facility. And when they were there, they saw kids living in squalid conditions. They were severely neglected some of them were severely ill, and according to multiple eyewitness accounts, these kids were just warehouse together. No, basic hygiene, inadequate food, and little adult supervision, health and Human Services Secretary, alexy's are told reporters at the White House yesterday that detention facilities for children are at maximum capacity. You're full right now. We are full, we do not have capacity for more of these unaccompanied children who come across the border. And that what happens is they get backed up there at the department of homeland security's facilities, because we I can't put someone in a bed that does not exist in our shelters, NPR's, John Burnett, covers immigration. And he's on the line from Austin. Hey John, good morning. So Rachel descri-. Some of the conditions that these kids were living in. I know that you've been reporting this out extensively. What did it look like in these holding facilities while spoke to one of the attorneys, and just imagine what a drunk tank in a city jail might look like chain-link walls, concrete floor benches? No cots, open toilets. And this is how they found three hundred fifty children from ages seventeen down to infants who can't walk. They were inside holding sales in a border patrol station in the little town of Clint just outside of L Passo, a three hundred and fifty kids in space, with a capacity for a hundred and four kids sleeping on concrete floors. No, soap no showers. Some had the flu. Some of the children as young as eight years old were trying to care for little babies. One of those visiting attorneys who sounded the alarm is allure Mukherjee. She spoke to NPR's Ari Shapiro yesterday. We interviewed many children, who said that they were hungry. They were obviously dirty. They were sick. They were scared and they'd been detained by customs and border patrol for weeks on end some for nearly a month for weeks on an some for nearly a month. I mean, John, the law says these kids aren't supposed to be detained for longer than seventy two hours, what's going on? Well, border patrol said, what they've been saying, for months that they operate short term holding facilities designed for grownups and not preventable populations of children. And we heard the secretary HHS at the top of the piece saying we don't have room for him. So we can't accept these kids in some cases, and the lawyers who visited Clinton, the maddening thing is these children had been classified as unaccompanied minors, yet many cross the border with a family member, such as an aunt, or an older sibling. And so they say these kids should have been allowed to stay with their relatives, but federal agents separate kids from any adults who were not their immediate parents or legal guardians. All right to the good news. I suppose. That these kids have been moved from this very squalid facility. What happens to them now where they going? Veronica escobar. She's the El Paso democrat, who has the district where the border patrol stations, located says most of the kids have been relocated to other facilities in the region, and eventually will be transferred to child shelters and most will be reunited with family here in the US while they await a court date, and understandably there's been an outcry. Not just from Democrats vice President, Mike Pence, call the conditions totally acceptable and really all eyes are on congress. Now they're expected to vote this week on a four point five billion dollars. Supplemental funding Bill. It's supposed to help the whole government deal with this wave of migrants. Okay. So we shall wait on congress NPR's. Tom burnett. Thanks so much, John, it's a pleasure. In Oklahoma, feuding state officials have finally struck an agreement on how to spend eighty five million dollars to fight the opioid epidemic there, the last month of the drug company Teva pharmaceuticals paid the multi-million dollar settlement to the state for its role in the crisis. Drug companies have so far this year settled claims worth more than half a billion dollars in the payouts are expected to grow fast. So all eyes are on Oklahoma to see how it is handling all this money. Brian men of north country. Public radio covers opioid litigation for NPR. Hey, brian. Hey, how're you doing? So I'm well, thanks. This Oklahoma case was a big one, a lot of money, paid out, eighty five million dollars. Remind us how we got here, there hundreds of these lawsuits against big drug companies all over the US claiming fueled the addiction crisis by aggressively marketing addictive opioid medications so last month. Teva pharmaceuticals agreed to settle with the state of Oklahoma for eighty five million dollars. But polish ins were starting to lawyer up fighting over exactly how all that money will be spent. Right. You had lawmakers you had the state attorney general get involved you at others get involved. Why are they fighting doesn't everybody agree? There's an addiction crisis here. Yeah. But money makes people kinda crazy. People don't agree what to do with the cash once. It's in hand. A couple months ago, home attorney general, Mike hunter did something that made people really mad. He cut a deal with another company Purdue pharma for two hundred seventy million dollars. Then he decided unilaterally how all that money would be spent. He decided most of it would go toward a new opioid research center, not to treating people who are suffering from addiction. He acknowledged in speech that he faced a lot of anger from Oklahoma's legislature, a rose petals. We're not we're not strewn in my path. There was a great consternation over me going around the appropriations process hundred speaking to a group called the bipartisan policy council in Washington DC. Okay. So he decides it's gonna go. To an opioid research center. Other people are saying, no, it should go to treating people suffering from addiction. And then yesterday this fight comes to a head in a courtroom in Oklahoma. What happened there? So all these politicians the governor lawmakers in the legislature. The attorney general cut a deal where the cash will now go into a fund that Oklahoma's legislature will get to spend a judge signed off on that agreement after the lawyers are paid all the money has to be used for programs related the opioid epidemic. It cannot be diverted to other projects. I mean, one of the really interesting things here, Brian is that this is happening across the country. These laws trapping across the country. So this is not just a problem for Oklahoma. Yeah. This is why people are watching glaucoma so closely, there are literally thousands of cities counties, state, governments, tribal governments across the country, all of them saying they've been harmed by the drug industry. They're eager to get a big slice of this money and people think big pharma could end up paying settlements and penalties on the scale of tens of billions of dollars. And remember? A lot of these communities are desperate. They're coping with a wave of people in their towns and villages, who are opioid dependent really ill needing help for everything from rehab to housing to foster care. So as this money comes in, we could see government starting to sue each other fighting over where it will go. And that's what almost happened in Oklahoma. Brian man of north country. Public radio is covering the opioid epidemic for NPR Brian. Thanks so much. Thank you. And that is up. I for Tuesday, June twenty fifth I'm no well king, and I'm Rachel Martin up.

"The. With two weeks left to go in our winter spring season. We welcome worldwide to a new edition of CNN ten to rival countries opposite sides of the world are speaking out against each other. But they're also both saying they don't want to go to war, and the United States. There's a meeting scheduled for Tuesday between the Trump administration and members of the US Senate, the subject the Middle Eastern country of Iran in recent weeks. The US has suggested that Iran, maybe planning attacks on Americans in the Middle East, Iran has denied that, but both nations have ramped up their criticism of each other since last year when the US withdrew from an international nuclear deal with Iran over the past week. There been some suspicious events taking place in the Middle East. There was the apparent sabotage of four oil carrying ships near the United Arab Emirates, there was a drone attack on an oil pipeline near the strait of Hormuz. It hasn't been proven who's responsible, but Saudi Arabia blames a group supported by Iran for targeting the pipeline separate. US officials say their intelligence indicates, Iran might be putting missiles on small boats in the Persian. Gulf that body of water is on a Ron southern border and American aircraft. Carrier battle group has been deployed to the region American bomber planes and defense missiles have been sent there American staff members have been told to leave the US embassy in Iraq. That's on Iran's western border still with all this going on. Iran's supreme leader has said there will be no war, and its foreign minister added that no country is quote, under the allusion of being able to fight Iran at the White House when US President Donald Trump was recently asked about the possibility of war with Iran. He said, quote, I hope not. But he later tweeted if Iran wants to fight that will be the official end of Iran. Never threatened the United States again. Ten second trivia, which of these grocery store chains was founded as the great western teak company in eighteen eighty three Kroger albertsons Publix, or trader Joe's. Great western tea company was run by Bonnie Kroger whose name was on his stores by nineteen o two. It's not the biggest grocery chain in America. You'll find out in a moment, which one is, but all chains are dealing with some similar challenges in a changing world consumers are doing more shopping online. That includes groceries, more people are looking for home delivery, and dollar stores and drugstores are trying their hand at selling groceries. So the competition is fierce and profit margins. The money stores make on groceries are small, this doesn't mean that everyone's struggling, but smaller chains are feeling the pinch. America's grocery shopping habits are changing. And right now, the biggest winners in groceries aren't necessarily the change. You'd expect for WalMart groceries are huge business. They make up more than half of WalMart sales. The chain is focused on lowering prices and building out its grocery delivery, and store pickup options. That service could generate thirty five billion dollars annually for the industry by twenty twenty but it's not just big names dominating grocery Sherman discount, grocery chain, all, the courting shoppers with super low prices, small stores and its own quality brands, case in point about ninety percent of the products. All these cells are private-label. The grocery chain is more than eighteen hundred stores today in plan. Sad seven hundred more by the end of twenty twenty two that would make it the country's third largest grocery chain behind WalMart and Kroger. But for the company that can deliver, you almost anything, almost anytime, groceries proved a tough business crack. Amazon whole foods back in twenty seventeen for close to fourteen billion dollars. The tech giant quickly lowered prices engaged sweet discounts to prime members. It was all part of the plan to get rid of whole foods, whole paycheck, image, but it wasn't enough Amazon's one hundred million US prime members haven't flocked to whole foods. These days, choppers have a lot of other options for buying organic. So Amazon is lowering prices again some other competitors, like Kroger are learning from the discount chains. Adding more private label products. But the new leaders in groceries spelled trouble for smaller regional supermarket chains in the end the chains coming out on top the ones promising no frills brick and mortar convenience and rock bottom. Prices. We believe robots should be put to work as service operators, and the first place to start is where people are hanging hundreds of feet in the air. Scotland robotics, we have a robot cleans windows. So we look at forty floor building that has roughly three hundred thousand square feet of snow window surface to be cleaned. It would take standard work today, roughly two and a half months of actual work clean, and with Osmo and just to supervisors we can do that. Same work in about a week, the robot actually match the building in three D as it approaches the buildings every obstacle that might have like a head bobbing out the window window opening robot will self correct and move around it. So as not to break a window. How does it know somebody's taking their head out? Well, it has computer vision and touch sensors so we can see and feel the I think the first thing, people think of when they see this type of system is off. Automation is coming for our jobs. And this probably seems like the perfect example of that people who, don't make high wages cleaning, these buildings. They're gonna be replaced by this robot. What I think of venture really society, mankind will be replacing dangerous jobs, because it doesn't make sense for people to be risking their lives from where we stand when we look at the job, we are automating. It makes perfect sense for us to put the person in a safe position supervising the robots and that the robots dangle hundreds of feet in the air. Nations are open for twenty nineteen CNN heroes, everyday folks, making a difference in their community their region, maybe the world you can find out more about it at CNN dot com slash heroes. The top ten heroes of twenty nine thousand nine we'll be announced late this year.

Amanda Boxtel provides high-tech physical therapy to patients with mobility issues. Record open. John's was named the CNN hero of the year provides free housing and support for sick children and their families while they receive medical treatment when Amanda discover that one of the kids in Ricardo's program named Alaska needed a wheelchair. She wanted to help. Video of a little girl who's eight years old, name Damascus, and she con toke and she woke she has cerebral palsy, and she was in a stroke. She's been in a stroller of whole life time. Don't you think for her to have a wheelchair to cool her? I needed to find the perfect wheelchair that could really be a match for her body. So it's good. A head rest and we've got an adjustable foot rest. We've got little side guards to keep her body straight, and upright, my head a scene stress says, and butterflies on it. Why not? Because, you know, it's about freedom and flying and delay is going to have that. At their nonprofit training in Los Angeles. Amanda gave the wheelchair to Ricardo. Lasca. This reclines. Isn't that cool? And this can go around her neck, so little head doesn't pull, yet, we can strap her in here. See. We think of everything because, you know, she's going to grow with this will chair you got. Let's take back to pursue. Terrace and Tacitus. So happy. And when Ricardo returned to Peru with a personalized wheelchair the less Lesko was overjoyed. With this new will chair in with her surgery. She's gonna have a better live the power of to CNN heroes working together to change lives. If you have a fear of heights, you may want to look away because we're stepping out onto what said to be the longest suspension bridge in North America. It's called the skybridge it just opened at Tennessee. It's about the length of two football fields across and its highest point. It has a glass bottom so you can see exactly what's one hundred forty feet under your feet, you actually have to take a chair lift to get to the skybridge. So if you're more Akra phobic than acrobatic, your senses are more frightened than heightened, you'd rather be woken on home than walking on air and you'd rather play go fish instead of bridge. This may be a bridge too far, but for Luke and the rest of Skywalker. We love spans that leave us in suspense of cordless traversing, another dishing of CNN.

I'm Steve inskeep with Rachel Martin and this is up I from N._P._R.. News protesters in Hong Kong have not accepted small concessions. They want to preserve the freedoms promised them when China took over their region. What's it's the Chinese government's plan after weekend? Protests turned violent and Iran sees a British oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz the latest in a string of aggressive moves in the region.

I support for up I also comes from honest striving to make better for you products when you choose and honest beverage money goes to fair trade certified suppliers to help support their communities visit honest tea dot com slash podcast to learn more Puerto Rico's governor Ricardo rose CEO says he will not seek reelection in two thousand twenty he he said that after a week of protests and San Juan demonstrators want him to quit he was under pressure even before the media published hundreds of pages of text messages between the governor and his main advisors. Here's what we do not know is the announcement that he won't seek reelection but we'll stay on the job for now enough for Puerto Ricans who planned another demonstration today we are joined by N._p._R.'s Adrian Florida in San Juan covering this Hi Adrienne Hi Rachel so tell us more about what governor Rosero said about his political future Sir well yesterday evening <hes> without without any advance notice the governor went onto facebook live and said that he would not be running for governor next year as he'd originally planned. He also said he would be resigning the presidency of his party. That's Puerto Rico's pro statehood party on let's listen to what he said on facebook live audio unless you're can develop Alex young and proximal they must ah importantly the governor also said that he was not resign. The governorship as protesters have been demanding for more than a week that he would finish his current term and also that he would welcome welcome defending himself in an impeachment process that the island's legislature appears to be preparing to begin to initiate against him so he was just saying again that he wasn't going to run for re election. Is that going to be enough to satisfy all those critics wchs now the governor's announcement seemed to only anger protesters out on the streets even more right after he made his announcement. I actually went out to the protests that was happening outside of the the governor's mansion and spoke with people who said his decision to not to seek reelection wasn't enough. They said he had to resign now. They seem even more motivated to continue protesting because this was no longer just about the governor they told me that the governor had become sort of a symbol of decades of corruption and bad decisions Asians by leaders that have gotten what the wrinkle into all kinds of crises fiscal crises post hurricane crises and that they want something new. It's an interesting really interesting thing. That's been happening over the last week which is each time. The governor said he's not going to step down on the crowds and the demonstrations against him only to get more energized <hes> and you know really these protests happening across the island remarkable and unlike anything Puerto Rico's ever seen I mean we should just remind people. This was about allegations of corruption within his own administration his it's general handling of the aftermath of the hurricane and these specific <hes> text messages that were too many seemed to be a misogynist and offensive right misogynists inoffensive incident reflective of a governor and more broadly that sort of a political system that is sort of out of touch with the real struggles Puerto Ricans have been have been facing for more than a decade because of all of those crises. I was just talking about <hes> this morning in fact there's a massive protests planned an here in San Juan. It's going to take over <hes> Cinquanta biggest highway. Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to show up. It's everyone's talking about this being one of the most important days in Puerto Rico's history in terms of it being a political awakening. For people all right N._p._R.'s Adrian Flow in San Juan. Thank you so much. Thank you so the choice for Puerto Rican protesters is whether the governor's concession is enough in Hong Kong though protesters have already shown the government's concessions are clearly not for seven weeks demonstrators have been protesting Hong Kong's government and the control that mainland China has increased priest over the territory it all started as a protest against an extradition bill that critics feared would open the door to China prosecuting political opponents in Hong Kong. The bill was suspended Hong Kong's leader said it was dead but that was not enough and over the weekend hundreds the thousands of people took to the streets again. We've got 'em Julie McCarthy on the line who's been on the ground in Hong Kong. Hi Julie Hi there so Steve noted there were these huge protests over the weekend as we have seen for so many weekends and there was some violence in particular this incident where an unidentified group attacked pro democracy activists is outright. What what can you tell us well? It was a really vicious attack and it put forty. Five people in the hospital protesters had just stepped from the train on their way home late last night when a group of men dressed in white t-shirts opposite of the protesters signature black T. shirts attacked them. Here's what it sounded like as they were pummeling and kicking these pro democracy protesters. There's a theory circulating that the assailants were supporters of mainland China this happened in the New Territories that abuts the Chinese mainland. It took the police over an hour to respond one pro democracy lawmaker who got bloodied in the assault said he suspected it was intentionally delayed mysterious men attacking citizens deepens Hong Kong's anxieties now and here's what Carrie Lam the chief executive had to say today as she condemned filmed this attack violence is not a solution so any problem violence will only breed more violence and at the end of the day the whole of Hong Kong and the people will suffer so. Juliana what is this about in this moment. I mean Carrie. Lam declared that this this extradition bill was over. It was dead so what protesters specifically want well. They still want the extradition bill totally withdrawn. It's only been suspended and you know that that bill has come to symbolize for the protesters Beijing's strengthening grip over Hong Kong in defiance of the One Country Two Systems formula it had promised Hong Kong Hong Kong's freedoms were supposed to be honored in that bargain and instead protesters say China is eroding them and that has expanded into a demand for political reform. They want to elect their own government. If they're going to preserve their liberties they say we'd better start selecting our own leaders but they have to wrest control from Beijing because they basically approve Hong tongs officials so Julie's protests have gotten so large there are so many people involved at this point. Have you seen any indications of of factions developing or the protesters united well. You know it was another day of defiance but ah you know I didn't see those cracks in the movements in this in this unity which is really rather remarkable. Even when protesters managed to spray paint the Chinese Liaison Office Beijing's most important body here the local administrator straighter <hes> when they did that people weren't to put off by it. It was a local administration that fumed they were challenging Beijing sovereignty <hes> which is what the demonstrators said they had intended and if there are cracks in that goals you don't see lethem quite the opposite and here's Julie McCarthy reporting for us this morning. Thanks Julie. Thank you okay so why did Iran enforces sees a British flagged oil tanker Iran has given several conflicting reasons. We do know a bit more about how Iran sees the ship. Newly released audio captures the moment when Iranian forces approached the giant tanker called the steno imperil intending bland eight international news on measly attempting to be the envy Senate Gutter Tocado shut. Both product is <hes> seven evening about the vicinity. I'll give you all day. If you obey you will be safe. Is the warning there by radio. Foreign Minister Javad Zarif wrote on twitter over the weekend that Iran did this to quote uphold international maritime rules. The U._k. sees things differently and prime minister. Theresa may chairs an emergency security session today to discuss a response. We've got N._P._R.'s Greg Mary with us in Studio Greg. Tell us more about this oil tanker. Where where was it going? What was it doing right so this was a British flag tanker? Mitch was in the Gulf and it was seized by Iran's Revolutionary Guards on Friday in addition to the audio. We just played there. Were some dramatic video of this that came out over the weekend gained shows an Iranian helicopter and the rain the Revolutionary Guard troops repelling down a rope onto onto this vessel which it has seized and taken to an Iranian port others a crew of twenty three eighteen of them are citizens of India Indian no citizens of Britain but it's created this real <hes> standoff with Britain <hes> as we mentioned <hes> Prime Minister Theresa May is having a a meeting today with her Security Council <hes> we'll we'll likely to see what Britain intends to do. I think the thing to be looking for is not necessarily a military response right now but Britain may be willing to join this sort of maritime escort that the U._S. is trying to organize to have military ships escort oil tankers in the Gulf to prevent this kind of thing so explain the justification that Iran has given s Steve noted. They've been kind of back and forth with conflicting messages. Where did they land well? I think it's really that it's a tit for tat operation here. On July Fourth Britain seized in Iranian tanker Kerr off the off the waters of Gibraltar. This was apparently in an Iranian tanker filled with oil <hes> headed to Syria according to Britain in Britain said this is in violation of European Union sanctions and that's why they've seized it and are still holding that ship except Iran isn't subject to those sanctions. That's Iran's argument that saying <hes> you know that's that's European Union business and their sanctions was here. That's that doesn't involve us. You should not be taking our tanker in a very similar commando commando style of the Iran responded on on Friday so now we had this standoff <hes> and <hes> we'll we'll see how that plays out and so you mentioned Britain's response in part has been to create some kind of escort system. I won't what's been the broader. International response to this so what it has been a lot of criticism of Iran and the wasn't great enthusiasm for this sort of U._S.. The U._S. pulling out of the nuclear deal of imposing sanctions on Iran but we've seen France Nance in Germany and even Britain was was supportive of keeping the nuclear deal in place but Iran's action is is having the effect of encouraging <hes> countries to criticize Iran it may increase the the desire of other countries to join this sort of escort to help protect the safety of tankers as warships and more planes just watching after tankers as we saw this back in the nineteen eighties where the U._S. would escort with <hes> with <hes> naval craft and and <HES> <HES> and helicopters making sure that oil tankers were not <hes> attacked as a headed in and out of the Gulf so much more to cover in coming days. I am sure N._p._R.'s Greg Murray on this. Thank you appreciate it my pleasure and before are we go and other story. We're watching today you Kia Amano. The International Atomic Energy Agency Director General has died. He was seventy two years old the I. E. A. Made the announcement to dance website but didn't give a cause of death.
