Biden orders DOJ to phase out private prison contracts

"Joe Biden is pledging that racial equity will be at the heart of his administration. I ran for president because I believe we're in a battle for the soul of this nation. And the simple truth is our soul be troubled as long a systemic racism is allowed to persist. But in signed executive orders this week that cover housing, private prisons and the treatment of Native Americans and Asian Americans, NPR's Carrie Johnson reports. President Biden says the country is at a turning point in its attitude toward racial justice after police killings of unarmed black people sparked protests last summer, those eight minutes and 46 seconds. It took George floors, life open the eyes of millions of Americans and millions of people around all over the world. Over his first week in office, Biden reversed the so called Muslim ban and paved the way for a return to diversity and inclusion training programs in the government. On Tuesday he signed four new executive orders. Susan Rice leads the White House Domestic Policy council. Today, The average black family has just 1/10 the wealth. The average white family. While the gap between white and black in home ownership Is now larger than itwas in 1960. The first bite an executive order directs federal agencies to overcome a history of racism in housing and restore tools to uncover evidence of discrimination when people apply for rental units and mortgages. The second executive order instructs the Justice Department to phase out its contracts with private prisons. This will not end mass incarceration, but it's an important step toward taking the profit motive out of incarceration. That's David 40. He directs the National Prison project of the American Civil Liberties Union. Varty says the president has an obligation to doom or because of his promises. On the campaign trail. There is much, much more work that needs to be done Most. Obviously, this order does not apply to immigration detention, where more than 80% of detained immigrants are held. In private for profit prisons. The final two executive orders promised support and respect for Native American sovereignty in call on federal agencies to fight xenophobia against Asian Americans. Hateful rhetoric against them has spiked during the pandemic. Males. A bear directs public policy at the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights under law, she expects to see more from the federal government, since it's already hired experts and racial equity across the administration. One of the strongest signals to the civil rights community has been the appointments of key administration officials.

The future of migrant caravans

"More grand caravan is one of those phrases which feels intractable associated with the recently elapsed donald trump era a term which decade sense will like coffee or very stateful genius or four seasons total landscaping separate. Those who can recall this benighted epoch. From those born too late or those who not altogether unreasonably drank too much the migrant caravan. You may recall was one of the vast menagerie of bogeymen and hobgoblins which trump and his media cheerleaders deployed to profitably inflame. The voters and viewers the caravan was telling a marauding horde of insurgents bent on taking your jobs stealing your women perpetrating terrorism proselytizing communism or whatever paranoid fantasy. You were having yourself. The migrant caravan was reason to build that wall. Lock up your daughters stay tuned to fox. Welcome the tucker. Carlson vote republican and generally run around yelping to set by angry wasps. Shortly after having set fire to your own trousers another migrant caravan is on the move now it will be instructive and hopefully at least somewhat heartening to see how the administration of donald trump successor response before we get into that however it's probably proper to be clear about what we mean when we say migrant caravan as outlined above it has been repeatedly slammed up into something other than what it is by various people and organizations whose good faith cannot alas always be taken for granted. Thousands of central american migrants are vowing to continue their march to the us border even though president trump wants to turn them away the migrant caravans about which donald trump became agitated where a phenomenon which pete in late two thousand and eighteen. They were mass trudges of several thousand migrants setting out from central america and plotting doggedly towards the united states where they hope to find safety perchance prosperity. The constituents off the caravans were from honduras. Guatemala nicaragua el salvador and mexico. All countries offering the less fortunate citizens plentiful reasons for leaving political instability gangs crop failure crime drugs poverty etc. The caravan on the move right now is estimated at some eight thousand strong and appears to have originated in the honduran city of san pedro. Soula as off this broadcast. Its chances of reaching its goal. Mexico's border with the united states appears slender early this week. The caravan was intercepted as it crossed. Guatemala guatemalan military and police who detained hundreds of migrants and scattered others with teargas. Nearly a thousand people have already been sent back to honduras and guatemala's chief immigration official modena's has laid down a hardline declaring that you cannot and will not get through president joe. Biden's rhetorical response will be more humane and compassionate the president donald trump's low though that represents but the outcome might not be much different biden's domestic policy advisor. Susan rice has already pointedly given interviews to spanish language media emphasizing that nobody should assume that the us mexico border will be flung. Open on day one. The administration biden previously. Served that of president. Barrack obama deported more than three million people. This latest caravan is obviously not the first large scale migrant and refugee x. flow of times and it won't be the lost. It seems reasonable to assume indeed that any noteworthy disparity in covid nineteen vaccinations between rich countries and poor ones will lead to still further people hitting the road and given what would be reasonable concerns about spreading the virus. Prompt even less compromising responses from destination countries than some. We have already seen what will likely not happen. Regrettably will be the large scale descent of any com- clear-headed logic on the subject in the united states or anywhere else. Those who are furiously against immigration will continue to insist that imigrants ra menace that asylum seekers. Bogus that we should build walls and turn around boats. Those who are passionately in favour of immigration will continue refusing to countenance the idea that countries are entitled to make decisions about who comes and who goes and indeed that it's better that countries do as transparent legal process around migration and asylum lynn's immigrants and refugees va legitimacy they need and deserve and deprives shrieking xenophobes of oxygen as is the case with this and far too many other issues however the loudest voices on both sides will be largely motivated not by their actual opinions on the issue by the visceral loathing of their domestic political opponents and the caravans and the boats will keep coming

Susan Rice binds incoming domestic policy adviser said the legislation also addresses border controls and the root causes of migration. The bill also creates an earned path to citizenship for dreamers, farm workers and essential workers who risked their lives to serve and protect. American community.

New tensions emerge between Biden team and Trump administration

"Joe biden's incoming administration is taking shape. Former deputy secretary of state anthony blinken will be nominated for secretary of state x fed chair. Janet yellen is up to run treasury retired. General lloyd austin has been tapped to run the defense department. Some of these names have been more controversial than others. there've been some progressive objections to biden's likely pick a former iowa governor. Tom bill sack to reprise his role running. The agriculture department and a lot of republicans in the senate are cool to the choice of near attended a close hillary clinton confidante to run the office of management and budget. Some other choices like yellow. Have gotten pretty warm receptions across the political spectrum to talk about this administration that's what is likely to mean in terms of what a president joe biden might actually do. Let's bring in our left right and center panel on the right law. Chen is the david. Diane steffi fellow at the hoover institution and he's the director of domestic policy studies and lecturer in the public policy program at stanford lot. He has worked on several presidential campaigns for republicans including george w bush's reelection campaign marco. Rubio's two thousand sixteen run and he was the policy director for mitt romney in the two thousand twelve presidential campaign. Hello lonnie thanks for having me and on the left sabil. Rama joins us. Bill is president of demos a progressive organization that studies and advocates for voting rights economic and racial justice and equity sabil is also an associate professor at brooklyn law school. Bill so bill when you look at these names What does this tell you about. The sort of administration that joe biden is preparing to run. So i think the roster that's being built out is really interesting to me what it shows. Is there too big tensions that i think the new administration is trying to balance. A one is a balanced between old hands and some new faces and the other is a balanced between a pragmatic course and also progressive ones. So when you think about someone like janet yellen or cecilia rouse on the economic team These are folks who have deep experience in economic policy but also represent. I think a little bit more of a kind of a progressive wing of the larger policy debate. Not these are certainly not Bernie sanders elizabeth warren folks but they very much represent a part of the economic profession that is increasingly focused on issues of inequality Racial equity and issues of how we get around are sort of current problem of austerity politics. Lot he what do you make of this list of names. Well i think first of all there are a number of very highly qualified people on the list people who have great experience in government who i think even republicans who may have policy or ideological concerns would have to say are well qualified to play the roles. They've been a nominated by the president. Play and so. I think that that's a very hopeful. Sign on the other hand. You've got some real head. Scratchers here josh. There are people who the president is nominated for roles in various situations that i think people kinda wonder what was he. Thinking there Heavier sarah for example to be secretary of health and human services a man with no health policy no public health background who's really so claim to fame in healthcare is arguing to defend the affordable care act which by the way may have been enough for biden but it really seems to be one of those picks where he had put the sarah somewhere so he put him at. Hhs which under ordinary circumstances might be okay but in the middle of a pandemic hhs is going to play a critical role in disturbing the vaccine and hopefully overseeing and the the end of this covid nineteen pandemic here in the us. choice of. Sarah is puzzling one. The other one that i would point to which doesn't require senate confirmation and so Will be what it is. Is susan rice as director the domestic policy council which has traditionally been the policy making apparatus at the white house that coordinates the creation of domestic policy overseeing areas like education and health care immigration. Picking someone with with the deep foreign policy experience for that job seems to me to be a little bit odd. I think she was picked for that job. In part because it doesn't require senate confirmation and biden. His team knew there was no way republicans. Were going to confirm someone is controversial. Susan rice so for every sort of great. Pick for every janet. Yellen for every brian You know you have a few that sort of make you think. Gosh what is the biden team doing here. So it's a little bit of a mixed bag so far. Yeah bill when. I look at the list of names. I do sometimes see what he is describing their almost a sense that biden had list of people that he liked and wanted to give jobs to and a list of jobs he needed to fill and in some places. The matching of the to feels a little bit random. I'd also point to to marcia fudge who's an african american congresswoman from cleveland. She'd openly campaigned to be agriculture secretary. She's a senior member of the agriculture committee. There'd been a lot of progressive concerns about how the agriculture committee has dealt with black farmers and about beneficiaries of nutrition programs people primarily eat food rather than making it And biden has passed over. Her is expected to bill sack in that position and then fudge specifically said that she didn't want one of these traditionally black cabinet jobs like labor or housing and urban development. She's going to be put up to run housing and urban development. So some of these choices they do have that feeling to me of what we want this person job. Well here. this one's available. Let's give them out. One is that is that. Is that too harsh. Look looking at this selection process and saying that you know i. I do think there's a little bit of that. In terms of the example with congressman fudge gave. I think is a is a good one of your. She has deep expertise actually on areas connected to usda. I'm at the same time. I think she'll bring a novel. Interesting and important voice went on the issues of hud but there is a little bit of that. I think the thing i would offer is you know. There's so much going. On with this transition. Given the pandemic given the extraordinary delays that the trump administration put in place at one things that we're really looking at is what's what does that next layer down. Look like so when you think about the whole team Not just cabinet but cap a deputy secretaries and so on can does it look like a team that then has the balance of deep expertise and Mission alignment right at someone. Folks who are laser focused on the combined crises of of the economy and covid and climate and original justice moment. That's the next layer. That i would look at right. Are folks getting complimentary. Picks to offset some of where they might need additional insight or expertise

"Joe Biden is leaning heavily on the former Obama administration for top staff appointments. If many of the names of Biden's Cabinet nominees and other senior staff positions sound familiar, it's because they are many of them previously served in the Obama administration. They include former White House chief of Staff Denis McDonough, former national security adviser Susan Rice, former Agriculture secretary Tom Vilsack. And former Secretary of State John Kerry. Some liberal Democrats are frustrated with the picks, believing many from the Obama era acted too cautiously.

Who Could Serve IN The Biden Administration

"Now. The current incumbent of the white house is showing no signs of planning to pack his suitcases. But that hasn't stopped president-elect joe biden from pushing ahead with his plans for the fresh administration a large part of this is the people who will make this administration so comparative unknown who will become household. Names come january for more. I'm joined by louis. Lukens a former. Us diplomat and a senior partner at sigme global advisors. Welcome back lewis. You want it now. i'm i mentioned here. That comparative unknown but the list of the runners and writers to make up the Biden cabinet this pretty well known names in there. He's going to bring on a really experienced team of people. All of whom most of them will have had experienced during the obama or administration's These will be maybe not household names To the american people but most of them will be known certainly within the national security establishment for the top jobs at defense and the state department and national security adviser and those kinds of jobs. So where do we start with. Who's going to pay. When i mean he's likely to name a chief of staff this week. Isn't he chief of staff this week. Probably ron claim who was as chief of staff before and and is a well respected in washington that liked cross the. I'll have to say for the cabinet positions Biden will be a little bit constrained by the senate because the senate of course has to approve The the secretary of state and defense and all those main all the cabinet positions so and we think the republicans are probably going to maintain control of the senate. So what that means is for example. There was some talk that elizabeth warren wanted to be secretary of the treasury. That will not happen now. The the republicans in the senate will not confirm a left-wing progressive democrat for a top job. So it'll force by his cabinet choices to be more centrist Which is not a bad thing actually But it means at that. The progressive wing of the party won't get the sort of personnel appointments obeyed hope to see in washington now filling. His cabinet job says he will give priority to technocratic experience. Loyalty and diversity. What does that mean in terms of who. We are likely to see for some of the top jobs well so he has pledged to have the most diverse cabinet ever. I think so. I think the front runner for secretary of state is susan rice. Her confirmation might be a little bit difficult because the republicans do not like her. But i think they will still try to get her through. I think we'll see a woman a treasury for the first time ever lael brainard. I think we'll see a female secretary of defense for the first time ever with blank florida. Yes michelle foreign. I of course so. I think we'll see a lot of women. And i think we'll see some. And then when you get down into the secretary of urban housing and urban development and human services and health and human services and things like that. I think we'll see people of color We'll see women will see Just in general a much more diverse cabinet than what we have now which is basically a lot of older white men. Let's look at the way that this actually could play out. You mentioned the idea of susan. Rice becoming the next secretary of state we need enormous job in rebuilding us foreign policy after four rather damaging years. One could argue. I mean she's former. Us ambassador to the un national security advisor to president obama. She's she's walk the walk. She's got the experience. She's close to joe biden. She'll be good at rebuilding alliances but there is that fair. Isn't there that if you start trying to bring back people from the obama administration. How much is concerned that. I think that joe biden is simply trying to wind the clock back by four years when america is a very different place now will america is a different place in the world is a different place so there is a bit of that risk. But i think that hurts that biden's team and and his cabinet members will make very clear that they recognize that reality and they certainly are going to bring Some of the values in core beliefs that that they that they had when they worked during the obama administration. Including you know for someone like susan. Rice a belief in working closely with partners and allies in in a belief in multilateral. Ism but you know overlaid with the recognition that the world is certainly a different place in that china is stronger than it was four years ago. And we're dealing with you know. Global threats like terrorism and climate change and In the pandemic so certainly a different range of issues in a different approach to how to work on them But as. I said you know the same values that these people had when they work for obama For years ago one of the big words associated with joe button is unifying and there is a suggestion that he's going to have what's known as a unity cabinet bringing in prominent republicans. How's that going to work. Well it's unclear. I think it's a great idea. In principle to bring in a couple of republicans but some of the republicans whose names have been floated including john casick and mitt. Romney are very very unpopular with the left of the democratic party so he has to be careful in doing so not to upset his own party too much. I think a meg whitman's name has been thrown around as a possible candidate for secretary of commerce. She is someone Lifelong republican but she did endorse a biden and actually endorsed hillary clinton for years ago She is someone who i think would be acceptable to the left of the party. Someone like john. Casick are mitt romney's little bit harder to convince the the progressive that they add value without detracting from the cabinet.

Trump's achievements in the Middle East

"Donald. Trump's foreign policy is all too often met with derision or simply chairmanship? Isn't it? The critics Maki's diplomacy and they pan the choice of son-in-law Jared Kushner as a Middle East envoy. However just dies away from the US presidential election. Trump has had a few certifiable victories to put in his closing advertising pitch to the American people. I'm of course referring to the peace deals between Israel and Bahrain the United Arab Emirates and Sudan these have been brokered by the trump administration well to tell us more about the significance of these Abraham. Cords. For the Prophet of Jews, Christians and Muslims alike. Let's tune to Greg. Sheridan, he's foreign editor of the Australian Gregg welcome back to the show. Glad to be with your. Greg, your assessment of trump foreign policy generally. Well I think. The media has done generally around the world agree poor job on analyzing trump because themselves have become. So polarized there the all against trump or a small minority of the mural for trump whereas I trump has had some wins and some losses. stylistically he's been very unorthodox and at times on counterproductive but you can look back inside that what trump has been a bath is being creating leverage. The United States in K. relationships is put tariffs on China, and that gives him something to negotiate with Jonah He's put sanctions on Iran that. Gives him something that Iran wants to get rid of an in every relationship? He's got leverage for the United States. Now I think he's done a lot of specific things that have actually been quite good. You can certainly criticize the way he talks about alliances, but it these actions rather than his words quite a lot of the things he's done have been very successful especially in Asia and the Middle East is increased the US military budget more than any other president and American allies. Niger very happy about that the allies in Asia. Have Been Critical of China and most inclined to stand up against Jonah namely Japan India Vietnam Singapore Australia a couple of Damon our full hours course I very good relationship with trump role. Bilaterally, a lot of his relationships been very successful India and Australia. His administration has built the quotes the quadrilateral security dialogue. He has recognized the nature of the Chinese threat to the international system and do American interests better than any other president. Andy's moved the debate along at the same time. There's been a lot of chaos in his administration, the White folks terrible but I think he's had some real wins and I think he's done very well in the Middle East. Okay. We're talking about the Middle East You have argued in the astride newspapers I amount to a major step forward in the pace there why these Arab states altering their relations with Israel is it because of the mutual fee of Iran or is it because the US has leaned on the Motley? Well it's by the size I think Tom plus some other factors as well, but you've just got to pause. And model at the size of trump's achievement in and. To even out of these words, probably you know get you sort of condemned by all international relax plots society at. A. O. Over knocks the of international relations would would excommunicate you for saying it. But you know Israel has five peace treaties with Arab nations. Three of them have come under Donald Trump. He has said we back Israel one hundred percent is move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem tremendous symbolic sign of his commitment to Israel. But he has said we all sat back the security of the Gulf Arab states and are opposed to Iran and we kind to put sanctions on it. We think the nuclear deal when far enough now, the Gulf Arab states all agree with trump about Iran. But also items cells to some extent lost interest in the Palestinian cause. They're certainly not going to allow Palestinian view of Israel to be a roadblock. Now, they say Israel is a very good security Patna and they are encouraged by the US administration to might place with Israel if you just change in your ABC's ready national with me Tom Switzer my guest is Greg Sheridan foreign editor of the Australian. Now Greg you've been one of Australia's leading defenders of Middle East policy for decades. Trump came to power on an America I strategic. He's goal a piece to be to reduce significantly America's military role in the Middle East. We just talked about this grand aimed Iranian coalition that can contain tyron wants the Americans have gone given that America is now energy independent moralists isn't this retrenchment from the middle. East if trump is reelected, isn't that a good thing? Well. I think. It's makes Grill Tom. I think it is probably a good thing. The thing tonight is about trump is that on the whole he has implemented a lot of his foreign policy promises. If you put trump's record on the Middle East, all together it's pretty impressive. The US defeated Isis and he's decided that the Iranian. Nuclear deal is a very bad deal. I agree with him about that because it recognizes the legitimacy of Iran's nuclear industry allows enrichment of uranium a whole lot of other things and then allows in a very short period of time I'm sales to rent said trump said that's completely unacceptable. He wants a new and much better they'll, and in the meantime he's applying sanctions to Iran. has significantly diminished Iran's ability to cause mayhem in the region but that brings me to the point about what happens if Joe Biden is elected knicks wiggle the polls. Many of the pundits the betty markets point to a Democratic victory next week if a bottom administration comes to POW, Greg dozen that increase the chances of everything you've just been saying being wound back, I? Mean wouldn't Baden for example. Revert to the Obama nuclear deal with Iran. Well Eight. That's what he says he'll do allow. Kind of the problem. So the final point from the past there is that trump is not engaged in any new military adventures whereas even Bama engaged in the regime change in Libya which had absolutely eleven offers consequences now, Baden. It's very unclear. What kind of Administration Baden will provide his advisors at the moment seemed to be dominated by retreads from the second, I. Bob. Administration Susan Rice and Ben Rides. But then his party has moved along why for an elect- with Anastazia. Cortes and Bernie Sanders and the influence of the crew he says he's going to make climate change the center of all of his foreign policy I think. He may repeat a mistake of trump's, which is simply to try to undo everything his predecessor is done whereas trump has left Baden assuming button does win trump was left on a lot of leverage tramples. Authorized the elimination of the commander of the Iranian could force SOMAINI and. The, Iranians, like everyone else are scared of trump and they're. Constrained by not knowing what he's going to do even though he hasn't done any major military intervention, I don't think I've boughten will WANNA put more troops back into the Middle East or anything like that. The story of the last ten or twelve years really has been Americans will will say trying to get out of the Middle East and finding it very, very difficult to do so but Baden would be. Tremendously mistaken if he didn't try to capitalize on the successes, trump might I certainly don't think he's GonNa WanNa Talk Sudan or by Ryan will will the United Arab Emirates? Out of normalization with Israel, but will is administration base smart enough to keep it going with other Gulf states in trump was saying the other day that he thinks Saudi. Arabia can might place. With Israel, we'll that would been shattering. That would be I don't tectonic shift in the Middle East and Baden if he's smart or his administration as. Will keep going down that road and then God bless them. They can get all the accolades for forever success they won't themselves. But if they get back to the Paragon the John Kerry paradigm, you've gotTa somehow miraculously solve the Palestinian problem before we can do anything else Well, I think it could be much less effective than trump.

"Hairless arid. Okay. So I'm going to give you one guess for what we're going to lead off with today and it rhymes with Comma. Harris is it Kamla Harris? It's Kamla Harris Yeah perfect rhyme with Harris Okay so Ever. Since Joe Biden announced that he was going to pick all women. To be his running mate, all one, hundred, sixty, six, million, or so of US women were on tenterhooks waiting to see which woman would be the King of women and on Tuesday. Joe Biden announced that he has selected. California Senator Kamala Harris as I guess are is that how vice-presidents work? She's now are king. King. She's a Queen Yeah sure King of Women King King Queen Whatever both terms can be gender-neutral now. So her nomination for veep is boundary breaking. In a lot of cool ways. She is the first black woman and the first woman of Asian descent to be the vice presidential nominee for one of the two major parties in a presidential election, which is super exciting. She was raised by immigrant parents. She was raised largely by her mother raising her and her sister alone. She's also married to Jewish guy she's like a rainbow of the American experience and she was also a former DA and a g in California. Elissa despite the fact that you know there's a lot of celebration yesterday I. Think There's something very dangerous about pretending that are preferred political candidates are flawless and I think there's something disingenuous about hiding disappointment or or some trepidation about our preferred political. So let's Give it to me straight. How did you feel when you learned on Tuesday Joe Biden had selected Comma Harris to be his running mate so Aaron I think that you and I both would agree that there were no bad candidates that we heard in the last couple of days if the reporting was correct and it was largely down to Karen Bass Hysteria fave love her Susan Rice longtime. Pal of mine and Kamala Harris the we could not lose now was Susan my dear pal and was I because of my palace and because I believe she is ready to serve was a little excited. That might be Susan I was I'm not gonNA lie did I after talking to Karen Bass the last time think that I could be team bass. I did. So I'm down we need to. Win. Kamla is great. I mean. But I think that everyone is allowed to have their feelings and they should feel free to have their feelings as long as everyone understands that like fucking time to get up and get on I agree. Well, you know as you know because you got a text for me to this effect yesterday, I was driving through a part of Kansas where parents. Nobody needs to use a cell phone All thing I know I was it was like five hours of just totally dead service and we stopped at a gas station in a place called Goodland Kansas right off I seventy and at that moment, Josh had like a bar of service and he had a text. What do you think about Kamla and it was like oh? Okay. Well, it was. My first feeling was that I was really hoping for a more progressive candidate just because Carmela is a little bit more toward the center than my personal politics are and she is although she's somebody that I find really inspiring and I think she did a great job in a lot of ways as ag California and she's been a great senator. She's been a attack dog basically on the judiciary I was hoping for somebody. Who is a little bit more Bassey in their politics I really like Karen Bass I was a big fan of Tammy Duckworth also, I think that she's got an incredible future ahead of her, she was sort of a dark horse candidate Tammy Duckworth but I would have been just completely over the moon if it had been her but that being said and don't forget Tammy Baldwin I almost forgot tammy Baldwin Baldwin the Tampa. See we couldn't have gone.

"As a democracy and as a secure prosperous leader in the world, we cannot allow ourselves to devolve into that and unfortunately donald trump. We have a president who thrives on dividing US whole political strategy is about divisions and fear and sewing but that's not how I intend to live my life. That's not how I'm running my family. It's not how I'm loving my kids and that's not how Joe Biden cover. That's the whole point of it. He understands it. We are as I believe as I write in the book that we are all in this boat together. So let me just ask a closing question you all this stuff and your book how you came to be the person you are you were a diplomat. You were a behind the scenes person you were involved in lot of political campaigns you have over the course of the last couple of months gotten much more into the political back and forth. In fact, there's a photo in the book of You throwing a pitch at a nationals game that is. The opening pitch and it's just an opening. It's something cool that you did in your life and then a couple of weeks ago when president trump pulled back on when he said that he was going to go throw the opening pitch of the game. You tweeted that same photo and you said, what's the matter? Mr President can't get it up and over the plate I just wonder what it's like coming into the political fray after a life of being behind the scenes and big not in politics. Well, first of all, that was that was for fun. And I hope we can continue to have a sense of humor but you know what? I discovered. The hard way Isaac is even when I was serving in new. York is on Bass to the United Nations trying to be very much a policymaker in a policy role and then went on to be national security adviser. I was sucked into the political fray I didn't ask for that but that's the nature of the way Washington has devolved. Long. As I was a sitting US official, I was responsible to the interests of the United States I was speaking on behalf of the United States and on behalf of the President and our administration now that I'm a private citizen. I am the ability to to speak in my own boards and because of how. Governing has transpired under Donald trump I feel compelled not to be silent about the many ways in which I think he is deserving our nation. and. So the tweet about the pitch was a joke. But the rest of this, much of this is not a joke it's deadly serious and Americans are.

"Welcome to the ticket come Isaac Affair. Back at the beginning of the year, we change the title of this show to the ticket thinking I'd be out on the road talking to politicians, and also because we knew it'd be focused on what the two parties were putting together ahead of the election, what the ticket would be. Instead I've been recording in Washington by Zoom, and this conversation is a remote zoom recording between two people sitting in DC. But for the last interview before the Democratic ticket is finalized, we're talking to someone who may be on that ticket and we're expecting that decision any day. Now we know Joe Biden is going to pick a woman and likely a woman of Color Combo Harris has long been seen as the front runner, but another contender stock has risen recently even though she's not as well known outside of the usual Washington circles. In fact, by the time you're listening to this, my guest may be the next Democratic nominee for vice president of the United States. Susan Rice was United Nations Ambassador, and then national security adviser for the Obama White. House. She spent all eight years in the administration working on global insecurity issues. You probably heard about the pandemic response office the Trump White House closed two years ago or the pandemic playbook. They Shalt Rice was the adviser in charge of both those efforts. She's the rare government official to have weathered intense national political exposure without ever running for office most people I became aware of her after the tragedy in Benghazi and the political circus that followed before Hillary Clinton was beat up over it. Susan Rice was the main target of congressional Republicans. She wrote about her experiences last year in an autobiography call tough love. It's back in paperback this week and it's incredible. How much has changed in the air and yet how weirdly relevant a lot of what you wrote about has become and asked her about some of those stories from the book in our interview we talked about statehood for Washington DC, racism and sexism and American politics, and the formative experience that made her who she is today a person who may soon be our first woman of color on national ticket. Take a listen..

"You were UN ambassador and there were arguably other people who are more directly involved and better equipped to speak to what happened yet you became the face of the controversy. Did you have any idea what you're walking into? Well been really what would happen was the the White House called me on a Friday late afternoon before the Sunday shows and they said you know we've asked Secretary Clinton if she'll do it, we haven't heard back from her but if she says, no, would you be willing to do it? And then they call back later and they say, she said, no, would you do it and I said, you know this is not how I plan to spend my weekend I was planning to take my kids to the Ohio State football game in Columbus and but if nobody else is available and you need somebody to do it, I'll do it. and. So to be honest I wasn't thinking in terms of myself. I was thinking in terms of we've as a team as as a country who suffered an extraordinary tragedy. We also had a lot of other issues going on as in demonstrations and protests against our embassies elsewhere in the Arab and Muslim world the UN General Assembly which is the big annual gathering of the heads of state where the UN ambassador is front and center was coming up in about ten days and we were dealing with issues of Syria and Israel and Iran. And so it wasn't completely crazy to ask me to do it but it ideally somebody else would have stepped up. But when asked I, you know my instinct has always been to be a team player. and so I said, yes. And then I went to say to to look in on my mom. who had been very ill, she'd recently had her fourth or fifth cancer surgery and suffered a stroke and I went by Your House just to say hello and spend some time with her before I got home and she asked me what I was doing for the weekend I said you know, I'm going to Ohio state, but I also disagree to go on the Sunday shows and she's like why? Why you. Why Not Hillary and then she kept going I smell a rat. Mom Don't be ridiculous I've done this before it's going to be fine and of course, it wasn't never doubt mothers exactly. So then lessen the primary lesson of this episode is always listen to your mother. But she perceived what I didn't in retrospect, which is at whoever's out there in a hot conflict situation. In a political hothouse delivering a message is. It's likely that the Messenger is going to be attacked as much as the message and that's what happened. And speaking of the toll this takes on the family. Apparently, it also had I imagine at the time must have seemed like a pretty frightening impact on your own young daughter. Can you talk a little and it was you know so in the wake of my Sunday show appearances. I became a targeted as a liar as incompetent as untrustworthy. All these things were You know the the sustained Republican talking points against me. And it was pretty intense and interminable for many weeks and in the course of the weeks following it, my daughter came to me and my husband she was nine.

"Webster's dictionary defines diplomacy as the skill in handling affairs without arousing hostility. No doubt that. Today's guest is an expert in diplomacy. I'm so glad to welcome to the show today. Susan Rice Susan served as the United States ambassador to the United Nations. During President Barack Obama's first term in office. She was leader appointed by President Obama as national security advisor a position. She held until the end of his presidency. Today she is the distinguished visiting research fellow at the School of International Service at American University. A nonresident senior fellow at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government and a contributing opinion writer for the New York Times. She is the author of the New York Times Bestseller. Tough love my story of things worth fighting for Madam Ambassador so glad to welcome you to coaching for leaders. Thanks so much David great to be with you. Your experience with diplomacy started at seven years old. You grew up in a household. Where both of your parents clearly loved you and your brother but as you say they had no business being married and there was an intense fighting that lasted for years. And you write that as a young child you intervened a lot. What did she do to intervene? As you mentioned starting at about the time I was seven I would hear them fighting quite loudly and sometimes violently. When I was trying to sleep at night I had a younger brother who was two years younger than me. Still do thankfully if I heard the fighting sound like it was getting kind of scary and out of Control. I would sneak downstairs and spy on them. See what was going on and if it did seem like it was going in a- scary direction I would step in. Sometimes that meant you know trying to talk them down and reason with both of them and sometimes it meant you know trying to separate them. But I felt like I didn't do it. It wasn't going to happen and I wanted to ensure that for me and my brother you know things were as safe as they could be and I write a lot in the book about my parents who are both really wonderful accomplished professionals who taught me a huge amount and themselves came from very modest backgrounds and rose to do great things both of them but in the realm of their marriage it was not a happy paradigm and. I had to learn to mediate to a large extent. I'm not sure I'd call that diplomacy because sometimes to separate them to try to defuse the situation. It wasn't always diplomatic but it was mediation and inadvertently I think. In Retrospect I. I learned some experiences with conflict and parties that are perhaps intractable opposed and trying to resolve differences that served me later in my life and career in ways that I could just depicted as a child and deed. What did you learn from those early moments that as you reflect on your career in diplomacy that you still pull from well? I think I learned from an early age in large part from my parents fighting but also from being a family where debate on issues and on the news of the day and between and among the you know my dad and my uncles or over the dinner table when it was me and my brother and my mom and dad that you know. A robust debate and the robust argument is fine. When it goes and veers into you know the scary or the violent as it did sometimes between my parents obviously. That's not fine but what I think I developed. In addition to some experience with mediation was a lack of discomfort and some people are with conflict with disagreement with argument. I'm not scared to express my own opinion to do it with confidence. I'm not scared to disagree or dissent and I think that did help me to be willing to stand up to be conflict averse not to provoke conflict by any means but if there is a robust debate to be engaged. It's it's not something I've ever shied from the thing. I think I learned from experience with my parents is a measure of resilience in those early years. Between Seven and eight when I first started being drawn into their conflicts through the time that I was roughly fifteen when they long since broken up but then had a very public very ugly an antagonistic custody battle over being my brother. Those were really challenging years for me. Socially emotionally academically and so I had to figure out how in the context of a broken home and a lot of pleasantness. I could still find my pudding as a student. Find my footing as the leader. Repair my friendships. Which I think I had you know around fifth and sixth grade. Done a good bit of damage to just because I was so angry and bringing that anchor to places where it wasn't expected or appropriate so I had to learn how to be my best when things were harder than they might otherwise have been and I realized along the way that I could take a punch in the form of what was going on my family life and keep running and sustain that part and be okay ultimately so I gained a ironically through data degree of confidence in my own strength and resiliency that I also think helped me as a senior official down the road and the knives you the bullets might have been flying and I was able to. I think draw on that reservoir of experience and belief in my own ability to persevere that proves helpful Indeed you were an assistant secretary of state back in the Clinton administration and former Congressman Howard. Volpi you had a deep respect for took you to lunch one day early in your tenure and had some pretty direct words you write in the book that he said you are too hard charging in hardheaded rather than listen. Well he said you are overly directive and intimidate others so much that you quell dissent stifled. Contrary advice. He allowed that. I was smart but to Brash. Knowledgeable but immature. He warned me bluntly that I would fail as an assistant secretary if I did not crack horse and you you say later that you came to largely agree with his assessment and so curious. What did you do to shift from that? Well the context for this was I was at age. Thirty two named an Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs. I think I'm still the youngest person ever to have been named a regional assistant secretary of state and I came from four plus years of working in the White House including closely with the president and the National Security Adviser and I knew the substance of my brief very well but I was young and I had never led a team the size of the one that I was leading and virtually all of the senior people all of the ambassadors. It reported to me and many others were twenty to thirty years. My senior most of them are career. Foreign Service officers mostly white men and I was very young and African American woman in an environment where in any event they were very few women or minorities and I had just had a brand new baby three months earlier and so I was impressed feeding mother in a small c conservative culture where none of what I represented was particularly familiar and so I came in very determined as many political appointees are that you know. We have a finite amount of time. We have an agenda on a get through. I had the support of the Secretary of state at the time who is Madeleine. Albright and President Clinton the National Security Adviser and we knew what we wanted to do and I wanted to get it done And about six months into my tenure in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight a series of crises hit war broke out in east Africa. War broke out in the Congo involving six other countries. In what was known as Africa's First World War Angola Sudan Liberia? All these things sort of came to crisis simultaneously and then in August of nineteen ninety eight al Qaeda attacked our embassies in Kenya and Tanzania killing twelve Americans and over two hundred Kenyans and Tanzanians and so it was a horrific loss and a huge emotional and policy blow for all of us who were working on Africa at the time and we had lost our colleagues and so against this backdrop of the pressure of the terrorist attack the fact that we were constantly receiving a stream of credible threats against other of our African embassies that we had to take very seriously. It was a very stressful time. At my approach to dealing with it was rather than sort of wallow it emotion and address the pain that we were all feeling ahead on my approach to it as a young and relatively inexperienced leader was just to charge through it to kind of I did with my parents divorce quite frankly you know we have a crisis..

"Graham zero point five while substantively in i think the susan rice element of it is a to maybe um but given scepticism i've seen on a number of other points sort of related to this whole episode the whole broader episode um i think the obe the question of partisan espionage by the obama administration is going to stay in headlines mic there might be some some more that will come out yes it set since like you guys on mixing a little bit both that the political substative i would say a tooted two point five susan rice makes it politically explosive gives trump supporters a lot to hang their their had on politically and but substantively just we just don't know and we need to know more and i don't discount the possibility of it there is something more sinister here so charlie we are recording prior to what presumably will be senate showdown over the filibuster of a judge gorsuch where it appears at chuck schumer has the votes to sustain the filibuster little surprisingly for me i thought he'd play a double game where he'd placate the democratic base by making a big show the fight but may be backing off right at the end 'cause i don't think this makes any tactical sense for him but it looks like he's following through and it seems fairly certain that mcconnell has the republican votes to go nuclear and by the end of the day friday uh gorsuch will be confirmed so will you be sad to see assuming it happens the filibuster for supreme court nominations go.

"I agree with everything in said but i think it probably won't be resolved because there is always going to be an explanation the consensus fi either the hawks uh all the jobs era hennessy it's just for sheer political purposes associating the name susan rice with this question is enough for trump's parsons to prove enough of his wiretapping allegation to stand by him yes unfortunately that sounds right up my larger concern about this episode is concerned i've had since deep into the presidential election i just think back to twenty twelve when mitt romney said that russia was our chief geopolitical adversary he was mocked and ridiculed for his cold war thinking by many people surrounding president obama added and his allies now you know not many years later we have this you on the other foot and i guess the fears that when you think about the idea of politics ending at the water's edge this old hoary cold war cliche there's this idea that you know whatever disagreements we might have with one another i at the very least fear my partisan opposite number less than i do a foreign government that is seeking to interfere with our political system whereas now it a really think that there are partisans who feel differently who who had actually prefer some foreign enemy he to their partisan opposite numbers and that does not make for a healthy democracy in excellent point josh ruling agreeing with i'm sorry i can't are more contention and if you went to sum up right hands on syringes one word i think it would be um sad with an exclamation who had the is under a sylla exit question here charlie rate rice skate as a scandal from zero meaning it's a nothing burger cooked up by the trump nsc and his media allies to five mean the next best thing to sure proof of a trump a wiretap on trump tower why thinking in reality it's probably a one or two in terms of how it's going to go across for precisely the reason you outlined that susan rice his name is now in the mix it's probably of four.

"Cub boma a bombshell report about susan rice and the senate teeters on the edge of nuclear apocalypse we'll discuss all this in more on this week's edition of the editor's i'm rich lowry and i'm joined is always by the right honorable charles c w cook ryan salaam n e n tuttle welcome everyone so in ally lake are i guess maybe mike depending on how you're counting broke this the big story this week about susan rice had instantly dominated the political discussion at least on a centreright media what did you make of it well it's hard to know and so there are two things one is the actual uh details of what seemed to what seems to have transpired and then second is is the reaction to it so what we seemed to know at least based on the reporting that's the reliable reporting that come out thus far is that susan rice requested the unmasking of the names of people associated with the trump team in a communiques detailing intelligence gathered a as part of of a variety at least of of operations and of course these requests go through an office and so there's a record of them and it finally seems that someone was able to get of folks from the white house counsel's office to to verify that this happened now the issue of course here is that unmasking per se is not illegal uh now unmasking uh can be improper and there's an open question about whether it was improper in this case and there's a question about whether once the unmasking happened if that information was then disseminated on against intelligence community protocols but we don't have the answers to any of these questions and we don't have the answer to uh the the central question here of which is really at the bottom of all of this which is was the intelligencegathering operation that was going on under the obama administration us simply cover four.
