Fresh update on "trump administration" discussed on Bloomberg Markets

"Right, we have yet another Supreme Court ruling. This could be the last. We're going to go to June Grasso, our legal analyst to talk about the remain in Mexico ruling kind of fell in the direction that the Biden that the Biden administration wanted it to, although they lost the case, let's start with remain in Mexico. Okay. Okay. I was going to say that the blow to the Biden administration on the EPA case is far greater than the win here on remain in Mexico. Okay, so it's not like, oh, they won one and they lost one. They won one, and then they want half of one of them they won, and then they lost a big one. So anyway, remain in Mexico, that's the policy that the Trump administration put into effect that because there's not enough room for the immigrants crossing the border that if they don't have room, they would get them. They would return them to Mexico where they would stay. And then these tent cities that were asylum bid was processed. Which can take forever. Right. And then the ten cities grew up. It was very dangerous. Biden administration wanted to stop that and two of the two of the Republican led states sued. So here the Supreme Court said, and it was a 5 to four vote because chief justice Roberts and justice Brett Kavanaugh agreed with the liberals. So it was those 5 against the four conservatives that it didn't violate the rules for him to have this remain in Mexico to rescind the policy because he had given a good explanation, unlike the DACA case a few years ago, they'd given a good explanation and they could rescind it now. This goes back to the district court judge in Texas, who is, who has been really hostile to the Biden administration. So it doesn't really end here. I mean, this could come back up again. No one's talking about this. This could possibly come back up again. How does it come back? Because if the district court says that they're setting it back to the district court for details to be worked out. So suppose the district court says, you know, distill doesn't work. According to the guidelines you gave me Supreme Court, then it could come up again. I mean, it probably won't. But it's just a possibility. So, but in this case, what was difficult about this case for the states who opposed it is that they're basically would have to tell the Biden administration you have to engage with a foreign state with Mexico and get an agreement with Mexico to allow this to happen. So they would really have been interfering in foreign affairs, which during the royal arguments they say, I remember I think Elena Kagan said, what are we going to tell Mexico to keep everybody here? Well, they have indeed negotiated that with the Mexicans, which I think is crazy, but with the Trump administration. Exactly. I had confused this earlier and I'll correct myself now with the title 42. Which that was a COVID driven thing, right? That's still an effect. So that is still in effect because Biden administration wanted to end that that COVID was used title 42 public health emergency. In a similar way, right? To send asylum seekers back while they're because they were worried that those asylum seekers might spread COVID. Right. So the courts have told the Biden administration you can't end that. So they're still using title 42 at the border and you know secretly I think they might have been relieved that they had title 42 because they are not prepared for the influx at the border in the summer months. You know, it starts to build up. Clearly we were given a tragic example of how dangerous that is sanitary in the last couple of days. Let's get to the EPA decision which you think is more important. It was just a big blow to the Biden administration. Well, you know, it's cutting back on the EPA, which is the agency that handles this, their ability to set rules to curb climate change. So it's a huge blow, and one wonders now what's going to happen. And also, as I mentioned before, the conservatives on this court are against what is called the administrative state. They want to cut back on the agency's rules. On the agency's ability to put rules into effect all the different federal agencies, and you know, if Congress were there to step in and make rules, this wouldn't be quite as big of a loss and conservatives who pushed this through who pushed these know that that's the case that Congress is not going to start passing rules now. Do they want it to go back to the states? Is this a state's rights issue from the conservatives on the Supreme Court? I think I don't know if it's a states rights issue as much as it's we don't want these administrative agencies to be making decisions, they're bureaucrats and it should be the elected representatives of the people making these kinds of decisions, but you know, I don't know how Biden is going to rather than people that are trained in this and do it for a living. Exactly. Why would you want to make decisions about just the big government? I guess you just don't want the Washington and big government, you know, it's sort of drain the swamp in a different in a different respect. It's interesting how these people in this country looking at it from outside because I live in Germany for years. Fall on different sides of the ideological. For example, they want small government, but they want huge border control, right? They don't want the government to be able to decide anything, but not the important decisions, but the death penalty, right? Right. Because that's not a very important decision. Yeah. No. No one said it makes sense. Yeah. But that's our Supreme Court and they have ruled and so now they go on summer vacation and we'll see what they do. 12 o'clock. 12 o'clock they're going to have to charge you Brown Jackson sworn in, so I think they'll be there. And then split. Champions, but you know, it used to be there was a story that one of the justices used to have as have a limo waiting to take him to the airport right after the last decision. Exactly. All right, June Grasso, Bloomberg's legal analyst. Thank you so much right now. Let's head down to Washington D.C. world and national news with Nathan. Hey, just to reiterate the breaking news out of the Supreme Court on this final day of the session, Paul, a win and a loss for

"The border. So let's play cut 46 is the Biden press secretary saying the fact of the matter is the border is closed, play cut 46. But the fact of the matter is the border is closed, which is in part why you see people trying to make this dangerous journey using smuggling networks is the border closed chat. Well, that comment by The White House press secretary is so acid 9. It's hard to actually comprehend. I don't think she has any idea what she's talking about. My guess is she's never been to the border. She doesn't understand it. And simply saying that the borders closed, so therefore people are trying to get any legally, I don't even understand that. I guess what she's saying is legal ports of entry are closed. So you can't get in the border or into the country legally so that you have to go illegal. Her reasoning doesn't make any sense. And I think this is just a larger symptom that if the press secretary of The White House doesn't have any idea what she's talking about, then I think a lot of other people don't have a lot of confidence that other parts of the administration know what they're talking about when it comes to the border. And so to answer your question, absolutely. The border is not closed. It's not secure and they don't have operational control. Three things that they continue to say that they have. And I think most Americans will look at that border and say, we have 7 to 8000 individuals crossing that border and illegally every single day. So every two days you have a 15,000 person caravan approaching that border and crossing illegally. And those are just the folks that we actually apprehend. So in no way is the border closed and you can only imagine what that does to border patrol officers who are trying to man that border, it sends a terrible, terrible message. And so when I went down to Yuma, I realized that some of these people want to be caught because of the policies that we put forward. You were part of the Trump administration's implementation of the remain in Mexico policy. Can you talk about that and how the Biden regime basically is perfectly fine with people waltzing across the border. Border patrol agent after border patrol agent that I spoke to, they basically said, look, we're just a paper processing organization. They come to us. We ask if they have papers, they obviously dumped them because there's a dump zone of all their papers. And then they claim asylum and unless they're from a specific country we can pinpoint, they basically get released into the interior of the United States. Can you talk about that? Yeah. So I think the asylum process. We talk about asylum. We talk about credible fear. It's all part of the same process. It's hopelessly broken at the moment. And it's being exploited and taken advantage of by the cartels and the smugglers because they coach these migrants on what to say and what to do. Where they get able to be released here in the United States. Look, we knew that the Trump administration knows that the facts bear that out. The Biden administration has the same set of facts, the same set of data and they don't care. They don't care that it's being exploited and there's fraud in the system. And so what MPP or the remain in Mexico program was designed was to root out that fraud to say, look, if you're going to apply for asylum here in the United States, that's fine. But what you don't have a right to is to be let into the interior of the country, never to show up for your court hearing. We think that's wrong. We don't think that that's good policy. And so we're going to change that. So we said, look, you're going to wait in Mexico. And then we're going to parole you back into the United States to go to your court hearings and you're going to have probably several of them. That's how the system works. And each time you'll go back and forth back and forth. But look, for those folks that were truly fearing for their lives and wanted that asylum protections that the U.S. could offer, well, then guess what? They're happy to stay in northern Mexico and wait. Those individuals that knew their asylum claim was bogus that it was fraudulent. They had no interest in waiting to Mexico because that was not their end goal. And so you saw numbers start to dramatically reduce and look at works, the system and the program can always be improved on. But at the end of the day, it works, and that's what we.

Communism Didn't Stop in 1989 With Xi Van Fleet

"So there's ignorance in America when it comes to communism here, there's also ignorance about communism elsewhere. There is, we fought this in the Trump administration, but for many Americans, they look at China today as it's not really communist. It's some kind of weird capitalism, but it's not, is it? This is still communism. This is a place common thorns through. Right. So we have to understand that communism didn't stop in 1989. No. No. Okay. And one of the problems is I think Americans made a lot of mistakes, dealing with communism. So for China to come to American to be introduced to American people, like after the fall of Soviet Union, and we believe even me can not believe, okay, communism is defeated. China is on the way to reform and so we're going to have democracy there. Look what happened. You can not reform communism. The only thing is destroy it completely destroyed. Look what happened now.

"Greenhouse gases, the other the Trump administration's remain in Mexico policy for asylum seekers. I mean Martinez. And I'm Rachel Martin the January 6th committee subpoenas former Trump White House lawyer pat sa boloni. The death toll from the migrant tragedy in San Antonio is now 53. We hear from a live from NPR news in Washington. I'm Dave Mattingly. Later this morning, the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to issue two more decisions the last of the court's current term, NPR's Windsor Johnston, says one involves the Trump era immigration policy known as remain in Mexico. Asylum seekers are usually allowed to remain in a country when seeking legal protection. But the Trump era remain in Mexico policy requires most migrants to return to Mexico and wait for their court dates there. In many cases, that could take months or even years. Immigration advocacy groups argue that the program violates asylum seekers rights and subjects them to dangerous conditions. The White House has twice tried to end the policy, but lower courts have ordered the Biden administration to reinstate it after challenges from Texas and Missouri. Windsor Johnston, NPR news, Washington. Justice Stephen Breyer is officially retiring today after nearly 28 years on the U.S. Supreme Court. Judge katon G Brown Jackson will be sworn in to replace briar, Jackson will be the first black woman to serve on the Supreme Court. She was nominated by President Biden and confirmed by the Senate in April. President Biden is expected to speak to reporters today before he finishes work at a NATO summit in Madrid and heads back to the U.S., NPR's Tamara Keith says Biden has been taking part in nearly a week of meetings and diplomacy. The news back home in the U.S. has been seismic, a Supreme Court decision overturning roe versus wade the day before Biden departed is continuing to cause waves. The surprise January 6th committee hearing with stunning new allegations, and now as Biden prepares to depart Spain Bologna more to Supreme testify Court decisions, will previous be handed witnesses down have told that the panel could further cipollone erode was his president meetings where lawyers were then president Trump debated strategies to try to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Now futures are down 282 points this morning. This is NPR news. A medical examiner in Texas says two more people have died after being found in the back of a sweltering tractor trailer in San Antonio that raises the death toll to 53. Authorities have said more than half of the migrants who died were from Mexico, others were from Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador, four people are under arrest, investigators say the driver of the truck is from the U.S.. Lawyers for R. Kelly say they plan to appeal the R&B singers conviction and 30 year prison sentence for racketeering and sex trafficking, Kelly was formally sentenced yesterday after several of his accusers told the court how the Grammy winning singer misled and prayed upon them. A cybersecurity firm that tracks activity related to the Chinese government says an online disinformation campaign has been targeting rare earth mining projects in North America, NPR's Laura bench off reports. The cybersecurity firm mandiant reports that fake social media accounts working in the interest of the Chinese government are spreading disinformation about three mining companies. The accounts called for protests of a proposed rare Earths processing facility in Texas. They also boosted criticism of the Biden administration's decision to invoke the defense production act in order to increase domestic supply of these critical minerals and metals. China is currently the world's top producer of these materials, which are used in products ranging from phones, to electric vehicles, to military equipment. The Department of Defense says it's reviewing the matter.

"So have we now turned to a new point that historic points with these hearings for January 6th, we put that question to Leon Caldwell. She's Washington Post live anchor, also co author of the early two O two to get her take. I think absolutely, that's what we're seeing. This is something that was historic, of course there are a lot of comparisons to Watergate. But what you saw is you saw a young staffer just 25 years old, take on one of the most powerful people on the Republican Party, Donald Trump, the entire apparatus that supports him and was willing to come publicly and tell her story about all these details that we have never heard before about what happens on the lead up to January 6th and on January 6th. This was something that will be written about in history books. This will be in journalistic accounts and books for years to come. We don't know the gravity of this yet in the sense that we don't know where it goes, but it was pretty historic and extremely courageous of this young woman. What about some holes that are being poked in the testimony? I have an example here Cassidy Hutchinson said that Trump lunged at the steering wheel of his presidential SUV after he was informed the Secret Service would not let him go to the capitol. People were talking about this, as you know, now the Secret Service agents involved say they'll testify under oath that that never happened. I'm not saying that it ruins the whole premise, but it does seem that there are a few people that are pushing back. Yeah, and Cassidy did make the point in her testimony that she did not witness that. She is telling a story that was told to her by one of those Secret Service agents and also one of the who is the same person, a top Trump administration aide. And so she was relaying that story that she was told on that day moments after it happened. She threw her attorney, says that she stands 100% by that story in the sense that it was told to her. And the difference is she was under oath and the people who are putting out those statements kind of saying that it didn't happen that way. Aren't yet under oath. And so if they do appear and come before the committee and take an oath, we'll see what they say. Let's talk about pat cipollone a little bit. Former White House counsel. Who are they looking at next? Yeah, pat cipollone is definitely someone that they want to talk to. Liz Cheney tweeted that saying that he is someone that they do want to talk to. According to Cassidy Hutchinson's testimony, pat cipollone was really pushing back against Donald Trump's demands throughout this process, including wanting to walk with the rioters with the mob from the ellipse to the capitol to remind everyone he was Trump's one of his top legal counsels throughout this process. And so he has declined so far formal deposition to the committee. We

Virginia's Nick Freitas on the Perception of Conservative Politicians

"Are told we should be nice, the Republicans should be nice. And my argument is, why should we be nice? When not just you or me, or my former boss, the president, but 64 million Americans are being called deplorable being called ultra maga are being called racist being called islamophobe, homophobic, Nazis, by the end of the Trump administration. Tell us what it's like after 6 years to be in the same building. As people who I don't know whether behind closed doors, they believe it, but when they make public statements, they say, yes, you're a Republican, therefore you must be a fascist. Can you work with these people? Is it a show? Do they truly believe it? Talk to us. For some people, it's a show. For some people, I think they truly believe it. And you can usually see the distinction pretty quickly. Honestly, I have less respect for the people that are just putting on a show. I'd rather someone be intellectually honest if that's what you really think, then tell me, and now I know the paradigm that we're operating with. But also, I get that. But if they're honest about it, it's also demented. It's unhinged. But to some degree, it kind of makes sense with this post modernist nihilistic philosophy. Is that you have to convince everybody that your opponent is just naturally a horrible evil human being. And that's why you shouldn't even listen to the argument they made. And I didn't the first time I experienced that on the General Assembly was actually in 2018. And it was after the Parkland shooting. And I gave a speech on the Second Amendment. And I didn't think anything of it. I was just trying to stand up and defend why it is that we both want to protect children and protect the individual's right to be able to at the same time. At the same time, these are not conflicting or contradictory positions. So I gave a 7 minute speech for Democrats left the floor in tears. The entire democratic caucus requested a 15 minute recess to compose. Did you insult them? Did you threaten that? No, for days they had been calling us Nazis. They had said that we were the equivalent of segregationists that we are the equivalent of engaging in mass resistance, which is kind of a dog whistle to be in a racist. Did any of you leave in tears when they? No, of course not. We were able to have adults or conversations like adults.

"Right here is preemptive and it's reckless. He continues by saying here and this piece. Hutchinson recounted that after numerous discussions among this White House staff and security officials that it was settled that Trump would not go to the capitol, which is to say underlings made the call without the boss, the president would be on board. Trump over did not care what his subordinates said. He said, I'm the effin president. Gliding on the energy of his ellipse speech Trump told the throngs that they'd soon be marching to the capitol and then he'd be going with them. Annie McCarthy does not mention that he said peacefully and patriotically. The peace continues. By repeating the lie that Donald Trump grabbed the agent and it goes all the way through and it ends with this. This is what we learned today. Things will not be the same after this. Why? Why will things not be the same after this? Yeah, I mean, they won't be the same where hopefully more people won't be duped by this sort of thing ever again. But the media did with the media did and it creates this echo chamber. And it's reinforced and the echo chamber by the mockingbird media, just intensifies, by the way, we went through this with bob Mueller. We went through this with the first impeachment call with a perfectly fine phone call with Ukraine. We went through this at every single turn. And yet we just kind of get back into this we get led down these rabbit holes that turn out not to be what we were told they were at all. In fact, directly the opposite of what we were told. Let's play this piece of tape here. Let's go to cut 75. This testimony was very compelling from beginning to end. She obviously had access to all of the players. We are now hearing from the former president on various posts where he questions her accuracy. He goes after her directly, says he doesn't know who she is and said he didn't lunge at the Secret Service, agent and the beast. Cassie Hutchinson is under oath on Capitol Hill. The president is on truth social. Making his statements. What is so compelling, I think, is how it was laid out. But the testimony in and of itself is really, really powerful. Thank you for reminding us Bret that she's under oath that only makes it the possible penalty of what she just committed even greater. Because now the Secret Service who never comments on things publicly says that's all a lie. It's all a lie. But it's not just Andy McCarthy. It's also former Trump White House chief of staff. Mick Mulvaney. I wrote the book the maga doctrine. I'm a massive supporter of president Trump and what he got done. But I believe the greatest and most legitimate kind of piece of frustration from the Trump administration is some of the snakes that were given platforms within the Trump White House.

We Need to Return to Civil Discourse in Order to Solve Our Issues

"Back in time. Jamie Raskin, the fame constitutional scholar in a professor who I've had the privilege of sitting down with I know Jamie Raskin very well. Disagree with him almost everything. But Jamie also objected strenuously to the Trump electors. Okay. Again, Al sad forces calls this past year a difference in what was happening. But when they were attacking members for simply doing what other members had done in the past, that was the part where I drew the line. The rest of it with a mob in the discussion of the transcendent of the capitol, those were issues for those people to have to answer to and are answering to. But when we take that and then we try to move it forward and to move forward and debate that is detrimental. We end up with our words, unfortunately, inciting the issues of problems like this with justice Kavanaugh around the road debate. And for me, this is what is actually going on here when we have gotten to the point to where civil discourse is no longer tolerable. Where civil discourse is something that you can say and you can get vehemently upset about you can even talk about the things that you dislike about the other side. You can bring your points forward, but at the same point in time, and no matter it's not reported, but when you don't take the time to make sure that debate is had in our country. In fact, the biggest concern I have right now in our country is that we talk past each other. And look, I'm bringing out a conservative perspective here on this podcast. I will continue to do so. But one of the things that bothered me the most during the Trump administration was that the left was never held accountable for the things that they would say and that the things that they would do.

Defining the New Right With Saurabh Sharma

"There's a lot of different directions we could take this conversation, but I like having thought leaders that are in the movement, but not necessarily focused on the politics of it, but more on the philosophy and the general direction of where we are headed, ideologically, it's very interesting to me as many people know on this program. I've talked about that I was once kind of a naive neoliberal, because I thought that was the country we lived in, and I thought that the other side would just stop it with their intense game playing and their bullying if we would just kind of come to a detente how naive I was. The new right the new conservative movement understands what time it is and what is necessary to reclaim our great country. One of those thought leaders is someone who runs an organization called American moment, American moment dot org, and that so rob? Sharma, welcome to the program. Thanks for having me on Charlie. So a lot of different directions we could take this. Let's first just give you an opportunity to introduce your organization, American moment, what are you seeking to accomplish? Sure thing. Well, the way I like to put it is that we have a what and a why. During the last year, the Trump administration, I was looking around, I'd had some experience working in Texas politics, thought I was just going to go to the private sector and retire from that game for a while, but I felt like this revolution that president Trump had started in the Republican Party and the conservative movement. It was, it was at risk. Because people were looking to go back to that dead consensus as soon as president Trump left. So we thought that there was a major need to build infrastructure for this new right. People who take immigration seriously who think that maybe these endless wars have been a bad idea to think maybe it wasn't the best idea we'd be industrialized the country. People who are actually willing to fight on culture. And one of the pieces of infrastructure that was really missing was that the personnel pipeline is completely broken in American politics, especially on the right. You just don't have a pipeline of talented, capable conservative, especially in this way. People moving into these roles that no one elects, but have enormous amounts of power. The people who undermine president Trump from the inside of his administration for the better part of four years. So we decided to create an organization that would build up that pipeline from scratch. That's what American moment is. The what is personnel and the why is this America first agenda that ranges across all the issues. And that's actually capable of a animating a right that's useful to the country, but also right that can

Biden's Poll Numbers Continue to Slide

"But let's talk a little bit about slo-mo Joe creepy Joe, geriatric Joe Biden who is presumably the president of the United States of America when I don't know who's running the country because he ain't running nothing. He should be in a pamper at a home somewhere reading goosebumps or something because he ain't doing nothing for the country. Now, if you look at his ratings and I find it interesting that let's put this together, ladies and gentlemen. If you look at his ratings from RealClearPolitics, shows it his approval rating is under 40%. Actually, it's 39.7, the lowest mark that he's been at with an average of 55% disapproval, Biden's approval ratings were lower than Donald Trump's approval ratings at this time during the Trump administration.

Why Did Nancy Pelosi Reject National Guard Support Before Riots?

"Support? Did you know that Donald Trump offered National Guard to the capitol four days before the January 6th, right? Yet Nancy Pelosi wanted nothing to do with it. Why is that? Why did Nancy Pelosi reject help? Official capital police timeline validates Trump administration's accounts show Democrats fateful rejection of the offers. And the media is in full propaganda mode, trending on Twitter today, just as a way to try to run interference for the regime, they say fact checking the allegation that Nancy Pelosi pushed back against support. Former capitol police chief Steve stunned as a tested that before the January 6th, he approached house sergeant at arms, Paul Irving, about obtaining the assistance of National Guard troops on the day the electoral votes were counted, but mister Irving said he was concerned about optics. Oh, optics. So you dry out the optics of the capital being stormed. Mister sun says that during the violence, he again urgently asked for troops, but help was delayed because mister Irving said quote, he needed to run it up the chain of command. Rodney Davis from Illinois reports that the house sergeant at arms and chief administration officer, both of whom report to Pelosi have steadfastly refused to produce anything to him. Why didn't Pelosi secure the capital? Why did she leave it vulnerable? Why did Pelosi leave it wide open and reject troops? Are we going to get an answer to that question? Of course not. They had no problem with the optics of National

Have We Done Enough? Chris Buskirk Weighs In

"Chris, you have done something remarkable in terms of having a place for the intellectual activities of America first to be spelled out by crucial voters. And not just voters, but thinkers in that community. Have we done enough of the heavy lifting in the last two years? Tell us what your list of druthers has in terms of what else has to be flashed out in the maga intellectual universe. Yeah, have we done enough now? I mean, if you ask me that next year, if I achieve every goal for at American greatness that we have, I'll still say no and if we achieve and exceed every goal 5 years from now, I'll still say no, there's always a lot of work to do. Well, the idea you're very successful businessman and that's the right attitude, right? Yeah, yes. I mean, I think it is. It would never complain. We've always got to keep our feet moving. And because there really is a lot to do. I mean, we sort of know what our goals are in general. But we need to achieve them. We've achieved some of them, but there's a lot left to do. It's not like we're on the one yard line of getting everything done. We're still deep in our own territory. I mean, the thing about the Trump movement about Donald Trump was that he shined a light on all of those things that had been ignored for a very, very long time. Like I was talking about earlier. The issue, how do we deal with China? How do we deal with the fact that the globalists in our country have exported the United States manufacturing base that we've exported our middle class that we have tens of millions of illegal immigrants in this country that have been let in over the past 20 or 30 years? And what does that do to middle class wages? What does that do to neighbor? It's all of these things. We know what those things are. But we need to we need to implement the fixes. And so part of, you know, part of our job is not just identifying these things. We have to keep up the drum beat that just because we talked about them for the four years of the Trump administration. Those things didn't all get done because the entrenched forces opposing us were significant.

What happened? Sussman was Clinton's lawyer and yeah. He went. Okay, Susan was Clinton's go between who went to the FBI with entirely made up information claiming that Donald Trump had a secret email server and was communicating with a Russian bank that's connected to oligarchs and Vladimir Putin. None of that was true. It was simply cooked up to distract people from the fact that Hillary Clinton was facing possible prosecution for illegally maintaining a private server with classified emails. So they made up they made up a crime and attributed it to Donald Trump. Meanwhile, the Obama administration was illegally surveilling the Trump administration. And the Trump campaign. And they use this as part of the pretext. Well, we have a national security reason. And then we'll go to the fisa court because Donald Trump might be a trader. He might be in collusion with the foreign power. All of it pulled out of Hillary Clinton's bodily orifice and forgiven in the FBI and the FBI held it up like it was real evidence. And now we see thanks to this OJ jury in D.C., the Democrats can get away with this and they are not subject to the

Chris always a pleasure, great to have you on the podcast. All right, economy. Good to see you. Our economy appears to be getting a little bit off the rails here. And I know the fed has a meeting coming up today with an update. Where do you think that's going? What's the fed trying to do? The fed wants to communicate that they're all over this. They're promising that they're going to rein in inflation, here's the thing, dinesh. The fed has a very, very bad track record of not doing enough, and then doing too much. So let's go back to, you know, I actually would compliment them back in March 2020. They did what they needed to do. They made sure, given that our economy shut down overnight, that we had enough liquidity in the system. So they took the right policy steps, and I would argue that the Trump administration also was see steps the problem is everybody kept this whole money printing extravaganza going and going and going.

Republicans and the Minority Vote With Tim Parrish

"I look at a GOP establishment that either writes off minorities like Asian and black or thinks that they simply, they don't know what to say, how to do the outreach. I look at the four years of the Trump administration with the increased popularity, more Hispanic, more black votes for him after four years in 2020. Am I wrong about the GOP? Do we know how to talk to them? You were telling me some amazing stories about just shocking lack of understanding. We don't. Doctor gorka and it's unfortunate and it's sad and it's costly because as we go into a cycle after election cycle, we don't, as a party, particularly the establishment, know how to engage with those from diverse communities. And we don't know how to tell our story. A story that has actually resonates with the diverse communities more than any other political group, but also we've been very reactive. We've actually settled on just being reactive. We let the other side lie and paint our picture for us. And then we react to that. And it's already going this thing. No, we're not racing. Exactly. Right. Exactly. That's the best we got. The letters, oh, you're racist. No, no, no. No. That's them controlling the narrative.

Kevin McCullough on the Failure of Democrats' Abortion Legislation

"Tell us both triggered Thomas. When I saw. The Senate try to push forward this insane abortion law and fail, I thought this is pure politics. They're doing this because they know they're going to get destroyed in November. So they're trying to come across like we're the only hope we're doing everything we can to save you from the evil Republicans, something like that. Well, what's interesting about the failure of that vote was that it not only didn't meet the cloture standard, which I think they were required to have 60. And this is why Elizabeth Warren was all out of sorts when she was in the hallway with the hill afterwards saying, oh, it's time to do away with the filibuster. It didn't even get a majority of votes. So it failed 49 51, you had a couple of Democrats that sided with Republicans that swayed the difference there. And at the end of the day, we are still not a country that is eager to. We don't worship moloch here. We don't eat our children. This is not and it feels somewhat surreal saying that, Eric, but when you look at the insanity that the left has gone after our kids with, they hate children from the pre born stage to the infant formula shortage that is cropping up all over the place now where the USDA actually controls about 60% of the production of formula and it had this been the Trump administration and he had taken the same blueprint that he did with vaccines and said, let's go get a private public partnership and get formula made and get it out to the shelves so that babies are okay. They could have done that in there's a couple of factories in Michigan right now that are sitting still that have been lifeless since mid last year.

His can clockhouse can. Welcome back to America first. Great to be with you. Thanks for having me. All right, I'm going to just say what I think about the Supreme Court draft decision. Because I'm not a lawyer, but I read all 70 pages recently. And you know what shocked me and maybe I should read more of these documents, it was a fabulous historic tour de rizon. It was a treatise. It wasn't full of mumbo jumbo that a layman couldn't understand. First it was this amazing historic review of how the law treated abortion in western civilization going back to the 17th century in the UK, the concept of quickening. And then basically this conclusion that until roe V wade, it was illegal in America, and then it was a segment by segment dismantling of both roe and Casey saying it's just bad law and analyzing started decisis in other concepts. So Ken, give me your illegal professional opinion, is this an unusually good pre decisional draft, or is this because it's a Leto who's riding it? Well, first of all, justice alita was a brilliant justice. His opinions are uniformly wonderful. But what you just described in as I read it as well, it reminds me of the late justice Scalia's opinion in District of Columbia versus hello. Yeah. Which held that the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms is an individual right from 2008. That opinion was also almost exactly the same page length. That was a little over 60 pages. And what you saw there is what a well written Supreme Court opinion is supposed to look like. This is an original list decision. One that looks to the text, structure, and history of the constitution, and in this case, in terms of looking at the history of a purported right to abortion, showing why. This is in fact not a right found in the U.S.

"From the Trump Administration, pressuring him to overturn the election and having him at least look into some very well conspiracy theories. Even some of them talked about Italian satellites. Uh, being, uh, you know, messing with the election results. So you have that pressure. But those allegations were so out of bounds that even former President Trump's, uh, attorney general said We're not going to get ourselves into this mess, so It points out to the whole idea that this election was some. How, uh, stolen from President Trump. And what we're discovering right now is that that statement is extremely extremely extremely away from the truth. And then obviously you have new avenues from a G. Garland trying to tame out what we're seeing in all state legislatures are trying to limit people's right to vote, so it's right response or a response from the fell government. Trying to at least correct some of these changes that have been made to state level. This is Houston matters. I'm Craig Cohen. It's our weekly political roundup. We're talking with the University of Houston Surana, Mo Cortina and Nancy Sims about recent developments in politics. Nancy Vice President Kamala Harris has announced plans to host Texas Democrats who stopped controversial election but at least temporarily by walking out at the very end of the regular state legislative session. Course, that Bill could be taken up again during a special session in the coming months. What's the purpose of the meeting like this? Well, I think it's to discuss with them, uh, the reasons behind their walk out and also to showcase them as a group that really fought these As Karen much just mentioned these voting rights bills across the country, and so a good part of it is to thank them for what they did for voting rights. And to show other state legislatures. You can fight even if you don't have the majority. Former Texas Supreme Court Justice Eva Guzman has officially filed to run for Texas attorney general against incumbent Ken Paxton and the Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush. How much more crowded Geronimo! Could this Republican field get well, I don't know, but the race is on significantly, It's going to be a very interesting primary for the Republican Party. You have justice, because, man, As you know, one of the first Latinas running for this position from the Republican Party, she has style record in terms of her stance at the Supreme Court, the Texas Supreme Court And it's going to be extremely interesting to see how she's able to maneuver, right we have on the one hand attorney General Paxton, you know very, very far away on the right. You have Commissioner Bush somewhere on the right. We don't know where he stands particularly and then perhaps justice. This man is riding the needles Center, right? That has a lot of appeal to the General electorate. Hansen very simple, So the race is going to be extremely interesting to see. How that develops in the next upcoming months, and the real question will be who does Donald Trump endorsed indeed, because it is a Republican primary.

"Trump. I always give them unless into phoebe. Does leap top also does entire trans from the new year. The german chancellor pointed out that she doesn't need any lessons on authoritarian regimes. She was after all broach open communist east germany. The relationship never got much better after this many believe things will improve after trump leaves office but pseudo david wolf of the german marshall fund in berlin says trust between berlin and washington has been broken transatlantic. Relationship is not going to snap back to what at once before it will definitely be redefined and there is also a bit of mistrust here in europe. There is a poll today. Let's as if third of europeans don't necessarily trust the united states even though biden. One marco steps down germany's chancellor in september but winning party leadership doesn't guarantee that army lashes will take place in the spring. Political parties will each choose the candidate. They would like to see run the country and it's not a given that lashes party colleagues will nominate him. The country's health minister and the leader of the cd's sister party the csu. The christian social union are both popular with voters also told that lashes has been soft on russia in the past but sue the david whip says. His attitude is likely to have changed. He may have said those things a couple years ago with perhaps companies in his state that have an interest in doing trade with russia. I think his positions will change. And also i think germans have come to look at russia differently as well. Merckel had few years to prove herself as party leader before she became. Chancellor lashes doesn't have that luxury with regional elections in march and a general election in september. Army does never a lot of time to convince the party. And the german public that he's the man to feel angle markle's shoes for the world. I'm warner bari. For twenty five years eight nations that encircle. The north pole along with indigenous communities have worked together to help protect the arctic in recent years at trump administration has threatened that cohesion longtime us state department. Arctic official julie gorlic has watched happened. She joins us now. Thanks for being with us. Julie you've been doing diplomatic work on the architects two thousand five. What was the culture of the arctic council in the years preceding the trump presidency. And how do you think. Overall the trump years change that the council it has been always very collegial. It's a small number of countries for one thing and all of us Except russia our allies And interestingly the relationship between the united states and russia is very good in the arctic. So julie once you started to see the clear position of the trump white house. They're climate change. Denial ism that kind of thing. What were the repercussions of that one. Eighty in washington for the arctic council. It was very difficult The arctic council's its main. Focus as you can imagine his climate change. It does a lot of scientific assessment of the climate and how it's affecting the rest of the planet and how it's affecting region and the people who live there the indigenous people so when the denial ism began it was clear that When the next ministerial meeting came in two thousand nineteen that the discussion would be Awkward because all the foreign ministers with the exceptions of the united states and russia We're clearly focused on the climate impacts in the arctic and how is affecting everything well in a speech in two thousand nine hundred and secretary of state. Mike pompeo spoke at an arctic council summit in norway. he antagonized council members. He said the arctic council's focus on science and research would no longer be sufficient. We're entering a new age of strategic engagement in the arctic complete with new threats to the arctic. And it's real estate and to all of our interests in that. Region julie garland. What did that speech signal to you. It signaled the end of the very positive working relationships. We had across the eight countries. It certainly put a very awkward strain on our relationship with russia. It put the other countries on notice that we were not going to play nice in the arctic anymore. we certainly weren't going to focus on climate and science and that Some even believed from secretary pompeo's speech that he was hoping to turn the arctic council into a security forum rather than a forum for the environment and sustainable development in many ways julie the biden administration represents a worldview similar to the obama years. Climate change is real and serious. Cooperation is favored over antagonism and many aspects of diplomacy in the arctic to qualify. For that. so do you think it will be possible to undo some of what was done. Some of the damage done during the trump administration or is the us of stuck with this stain this reputation. I think the damage will be undone. There was certainly a lot of stress among the arctic states at the end of the bush administration as well which also had a climate. Denial is not quite as prominently as the trump administration. It's a it's a small. Nimble group of countries who are are pretty quick to bend move as necessary according to events and i think everything will be fine after maybe a period of months. What do you think the lasting impacts could be. Well i think the main lasting impact will be wearing a four years from now with another republican administration comes in that is in climate. Denial certainly That create a lot of problems in mistrust but for now. Anyway i think the push will be to get a lot of good work done and hope that things don't get derailed too far for years from now but that that's always a warrior in the arctic council that the united states administration changes every four years. Potentially that could disrupt the work but we find ways to gone and worked through it. As i said you've been working on this since two thousand five. Why are you in this for the long haul. Why you personally invested in this work. It's a very important part of the world That frankly i knew very little about before. I delved into this. Work I don't think a lot of people know that four million people live above the arctic circle. they're mostly indigenous. And they mostly try to live very traditionally and their traditional way of life disappearing appearing And the ecosystem is was rather pristine. It's now shown to be filled with micro particles of plastics and other pollution in the ocean. That we didn't really know his there before. The i started to melt It's it's a really incredible part of the world. it serves the air conditioning for the planet And if if we lose it it's it's it's going. Who knows what will happen with mankind and with lots and lots of species.

I'm for more on president-elect biden's approach to immigration. we turn out to chris. Ramon he's an independent policy and research analysts. What is it satis of these asylum agreements that the trump white house signed with guatemala honduras and el salvador. Guatemala agreement was in place from fall. Twenty nineteen into march twenty twenty suspended to the covid pandemic i believe. As of december clingy twenty. The administration is now fully implemented these agreements. but what we haven't really seen any major reports of individuals being sent back to these countries. So that's established that i think the administration went ahead and said let's just implement this before the incoming administration comes in overturns them but in terms of actual real impact on myron flows. I think this is just an implementation by name. only. I don't think it's really been operational. And how they will be able to see it. Be fully operational before. President biden overturn. Stuff so what has a biden administration said so far about these agreements. And what he's gonna do with them is going to overturn them. That's the stated purpose. This very clear that those are among the policies that the trump administration's implemented at the us mexican border. And that's something that he wants to overturn alongside with other policies at the trump administration has Plays like margaret protection. Protocols found this operation policies this part of the suite of policies that president-elect biden wants to overturn so by the administration doesn't wind these agreements. What would happen next if say large group of asylum seekers and migrants get to the us mexico border even within the next few weeks or months so the trump administration maintain the suite of policies that he used to sort of term in how has been remove migrants from the us. mexico border. president biden has said he wants a completely make a clean break from trump administration as he's going to limit policies. The thing is it's a question of when he's going to eliminate those policies and i think that's been an area of major debate within the incoming administration and also more broadly with the immigration advocacy community. Do you see deportations continuing though i mean deportation was a tool used a lot. In president obama's immigration toolbox president has stated that he's going to be issuing moratorium on interior removals for one hundred days. That's something that he's sort of been floating out there then. Ways of the united states could approach immigration enforcement differently. You so what. Policy options are available if the biden administration focuses on say the roots of why people are choosing to leave their homes like no jobs violence or you mentioned hurricanes hurricanes. Earthquakes the consensus. That's been dying is basically providing development assistance to a free northern triangle countries the economic development rule of law as a corruption practices and sort of boosted human security for vulnerable populations such as women and girls. Those are sort of three areas that you always focus on advertising rick. I think what's important to know is studies. Do show that as you're proving. The conditions in these countries is actually more likely that people will migrate because they have the means to do so at least in the short term and over long term. People aren't gonna stick around. The important thing is that studies also show that this aid is good for improving the conditions. But the jury still out whether or not that actually deters immigration. And i think what you're looking at development aid you need to think of it as we're just a bigger improve conditions in these countries. I think it's gonna be hard for Improve the conditions countries. So people migrate and i think bad swear that has some nuance and understanding. We're gonna talk causes to improve her causes. I think we need to be realistic. As to whether party root causes will completely eliminate the push factors for immigrants. I think let's just improve situations for the sake of improve them and then any additional benefits from that when it comes to migration management chris moon is an independent policy and research analyst.

"And now a story you have missed. During last week's storming of the us capital. The trump administration achieved one of its biggest environmental reversals. It auctioned off leases to drill oil in alaska's arctic national wildlife refuge it's one of the country's most pristine places home to migrating caribou birds and polar bears but the sale was a bust degan hanlin of alaska's energy desk joins us now to explain welcome. Hi thanks for having me on. Thanks for being with us okay. So the trump administration has pushed for the sale for three years. I mean republicans have pushed to allow drilling in this refuge for decades. What exactly happened here. So the sale received a striking lack of interest as a former federal gas official told me it was a dry hole. A bust about half of the area up for leasing got no offers at all. No major oil companies submitted bids instead just two small companies each picked up one lease and the rest of them went to the state of alaska. There's a state owned economic development corporation here the highest bidder on nine leases. But what. I don't get the revenue. The refuge is thought to contain a lot of oil. Right so why wasn't there. More demand. well industry analysts have said there's multiple reasons a major one is the opposition to drilling in this place. There are ongoing lawsuits fighting. The trump administration's leasing program there filed by environmental groups. And the glitch. In which is an indigenous group that hunts the caribou that commonly give birth in the refuge. And they say. The leasing program is rushed legally flawed. There's also just the high cost of doing business in the arctic compared to say texas and there's the uncertainty about future oil demand and the changing presidential administration. Here's how larry personally former federal gas official for alaska put it betting your company and billions of dollars on oil in a high risk environment on the arctic. Besides for all the grief you're going to take from the public from shareholders from investors. That's a big gamble companies. Just don't have the appetite for that anymore and one more point money from this sale was meant to offset president. Trump's tax cuts back in two thousand seventeen but this sale will raise just a small fraction of the amount. The government had hoped okay so the industry didn't really show up. But you said the state of alaska actually stepped up since tapped into buy up leases. Would are they going to do with that. You think right so there's actually quite a bit of political support in alaska for drilling in the refuge. They say it's a way to create more state revenue more jobs so the basic idea. Is that the state buys these leases. Which last for ten years and can be renewed and it could just sit on them and wait for market conditions to improve and then it would have to partner with the oil industry to do that. Actual drilling okay. Well president-elect biden has said. He opposes drilling in the arctic refuge. Can you do anything about the leases. That have already been sold. It's not clear yet what we'll do. We know that. Normally lisa's could take months to finalise. But we expect the trump administration to try to rush them through before biden takes office when option is biting. Try to buy back those leases when he's an office though that's kind of unusual also. Once a company has an oil lease. They still have a lot of permits and approvals so industry analysts say a biden administration could hold up that permitting process and it's also still possible. A federal court could intervene teagan handling of alaska public media thank you.

Among the items she sells are luxury handbags from paris which can retail for thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars. We specialize in her mess. We have a robust online website and by appointment only showroom business online has been good. Taylor says even during the pandemic. if you can't travel and you want to do something for the holidays the chances are you're gonna buy something luxurious but the cost of importing. French handbags is about to go up as of today. The trump administration is imposing a twenty five percent tariff on more than a billion dollars worth of french imports including lipstick. Fancy soap and handbags. That's a challenge for taylor who was already facing higher prices for bags. As a result of factory shutdowns last spring little happen is basically the same thing that happened with everything passed onto the consumer. The administration says his living. These tariffs in retaliation for france's new tax on digital services which critics say unfairly targets. Us tech giants like google and facebook match years has an industry. Trade group called the computer and communications industry association when our trading partners are mating their new taxes after us companies it's clear their targeting american business for discriminatory treatment and it's necessary to take a stand and the new tax on handbags not the outgoing president's only parting tariff shot next week the administration courts new import taxes on cognac and certain wines from france and germany christine cacho of the distilled spirits council knows other european winds were already hit with import taxes as part of a long running battle over government.

"Were given out for your vote. It's not exactly in the E. I can't find anything a specific that Trump campaign has been pursuing any litigation in that regard. As far as I can tell, apparently going through a Twitter feed. Apparently, it has to do with people Native Americans, in particular, showing proof that they voted So after they voted. Once they voted, they could come back to these various locations and they could get a gift card. Or they might get some other something. Electron IX was one thing that was mentioned. S O, because they voted, so it's like an incentive to go out to vote. You know, they're fine, Pat. Any and I looked was looking it up to and I didn't find any reputable source. I found two sources, both from conservative, online blogged website right things but never know sources on that that Look reputable to me. Yeah, and it was quick. You know, it was a quick search, and I I couldn't find any reputable source either. However, I do remember elections where, if you you know, after you voted, if you were wearing your I voted sticker on you would go into certain places that you might get a free soda with your pizza because you voted that sort of thing. And it kind of sounds to me like that's what this Woz except that it was more valuable than just getting a soda. There's no indication that anybody was told how they had to vote, nor did they have to prove that they that they voted for any particular person and I don't know how you would do that. However, I do think that it's it's wrong. Um, I think that it's bribery. You know, even getting people to go out to vote. However, I would say that one of the reasons the Trump campaign is probably not pursuing this is that it's not going to negate the vote to the people who illegally voted. They have the right to cast their vote. What it would do. It was hold. It would be to withhold to hold those people who were bribing individuals, toe hold them legally responsible. There was a case in 2016 that I found off a woman who was trying to get other people to vote and she got a bus. And she was going to take pictures. Make a phone call. She was taking people to the polling site to vote. Well, One of the things she did was the 1st 50 women who joined her to go to vote on this bus. She gave them $100 gift certificates. And, uh, yeah, she got into big, big trouble for that, because that was a violation of election law. So it's not that she was telling people how to vote. She was carting him out there, and she had no idea that she was breaking the law. So it sounds like it's pretty clear that it's a violation of election law. But it isn't the kind of thing that negates the vote of a registered voter. But the person who's doing the bribery condemn Finitely get into big, big trouble in any event, getting back to the bigger issue. The bigger issue is that We still don't have a transition and that that is damaging to this country that national security people have said. It's damaging to this country. And can I just tell you that the Trump Administration Prior to him firing the guy who the director of this of this organization, the Trump Administration had this organization in place. It was part of Homeland security. It's called the election Infrastructure of sorry. It's called the Yeah, it's actually a long name, Election Infrastructure Government Coordinating Council Executive Committee. Within that is the Cyber Security and Infrastructure Security Agency. It's called CISA. For short, C s a On and they issued a statement jointly. They they usually the statement with all these various people, but ah, man named Krebs was the director of this and they issued a statement. Can I just share with you what this statement says. When state of closed elections many will recount ballots. All of this the excuse me. I skipped a paragraph. The November 3rd election was the most secure in American history. Maybe we could just stop there and go home. The November 3rd election was the most secure in American history. Right now across the country, election officials are reviewing and double checking the entire election process prior to finalizing the result. When states have close elections, many will recount ballots. That's what happened in Georgia. All of the states with close results in the 2020 presidential race, have paper records of each vote. I didn't know that And it gives me so much more faith in the election results to know that you've got a paper trail, So let me continue s O. All the states would close results have paper records of each vote, allowing the ability to go about it back and count each ballot if necessary. This is an added benefit for security and resilience. This process allows for the identification and correction of any mistakes or errors. There. This is in bold print. There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes changed votes or was in any way compromised. Other security measures like pre election testing takes state certification of voting equipment and the U. S. Election Assistance Commission certification of voting equipment. Helped to build additional confidence in the voting systems used in 2020. While we know there are many unfounded claims and opportunities for misinformation about the process of our elections, we can assure you we have the utmost confidence in the security and integrity of our elections. And you should, too. When you have questions turn to elections officials has trusted voices as they administer elections. The director of that agency was fired. Trump Within a couple of days of issuing that statement. He was fired because he issued that statement, Donald Trump said So. I'm not presuming that, Donald Trump said. So These are the actions of a dictator. These are not the actions of a Democratic republic, a representative democracy There's a not the kind of actions countries like ours are supposed to take. If there are allegations of malfeasance of fraud, by all means, pursue them. Investigate them. Bring your evidence to the court. But so far, the Trump Administration has brought a lot of allegations with zero evidence to the courts, and that's the reason they have not prevailed in any of these. We're hearing from reporters that they're speaking with members of the Trump Administration, who are also extremely frustrated because it appears that what Donald Trump is attempting to do is to stop The states from being able to certify their votes by causing all of this interference. By bringing these cases they know they cannot win. So that they can cause them to have to delay. DeLay delay until deadlines pass and it is too late for states to certify. The will of the voters. And that is when they are hoping it is sent to Republican legislatures who will overrule the will of the voters and submit their own slate of electors. I didn't think he would.

"Presidential candidate is presenting a more aggressive plan to tackle climate change Donald trump fixed about climate change. The only word he can muster is hoax when I think about climate change. Word, I think of his jobs. That was Biden in Wilmington yesterday unveiling his new plan. The world's environment correspondent Carolyn Bieler joins me now. What stands out about this plan Caroline Carol? This plan really does more and faster than the larger climate change plan that binds campaign originally announced last summer that twenty nineteen plan pledged one point seven trillion dollars in climate investment over ten years. This one pledges two trillion dollars in just four years. It also sets a new target for clean energy, so all Electrobi- generated in the US would be carbon free twenty, thirty five. That's a really big change in a really short amount of time, and it's ambitious, compared to what other countries are planning for. I talked to Takeshi Kuramochi from this international climate policy, think tank new climate institute, and he called the prospect of reaching that goal daunting even the European. Union hasn't committed to fully decarbonisation electric city in such a short time frame, so even compared to some of the countries that are considered advanced in terms of climate policy. This is one of those ambitious vicious ones. So, it's ambitious. How else is it different from the larger climate? Plan that you mentioned Biden released last summer? It's a lot more domestically focused so last summer's plans really painting Biden as the inheritor of the globalist climate policies, the legacy of President Obama, so it was all about getting back into the Paris climate agreement ending fossil fuel subsidies all around the world, and it really focused on leaning on China to get it to be a more aggressive actor when it comes to climate change, but fast forward to today were in the middle of a pandemic. We're in an economic downturn. Are Out of jobs, so he is rather obviously pivoting toward climate change as an opportunity for jobs. We heard that in a clip earlier. Clean energy jobs jobs, building more resilient infrastructure and mass transit jobs, making buildings more energy, efficient jobs than electric vehicle manufacturing, really framing climate change right now in this moment as a job opportunity, but even as the Biden campaign doubles down on these domestic issues and takes the domestic approach to climate change I understand. China's still get some attention in his new plan. That's right. China is still framed us sort of the country to to beat in developing a clean energy economy China's pulled ahead as a leader on electric vehicle manufacturing and Biden says he'll vigorously. Trade rules and mandate that the government by electric vehicles to create you guessed it. A million jobs in auto manufacturing supply chains and auto infrastructure US auto industry. And his deep bench of suppliers will step up expanding capacity of the United States. Not. China leads the world and clean vehicle production so caroline. How likely is it that if he's elected joe? Biden could deliver on these very big promises well, he needs support of Congress to push through a lot of the initiatives that he has proposed. So that is a question. We won't be able to even begin to answer until November. The world's. Curling Bieler, thanks so much thanks Carol. Relations between the US and China seem to be in freefall. The two nations are trading barbs over trade sanctions and control of the South China Sea one third of the world shipping passes through the area, South China which touches several Asian nations in a statement this week Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the world will not allow Beijing. Beijing to treat the South China Sea Maritime Empire joining me now is Bonnie, glaser senior director for Asia at the Center for Strategic and International Studies Bonnie for months Mike Pompeo has been saying that China is basically acting like the neighborhood bully when it comes to its behavior, but with statement this week has the US stance on China's presence in the South China cease changed. Well I think that the new US position is really a clarification and a bit of a toughening of the prior US stance. The United States has opposed China's coercive. Against neighbors interference with their efforts to develop oil and gas that are off their coach lines, but the United States is actually never said that those activities were illegal, and so the clarification of this policy is not taking a position over who owns what land features, but it is taking a clear position over the maritime rights in resources, and who should develop them, and it's clearly saying that China just doesn't have the right to do so. Not remind us what the Chinese have been doing in the South China, sea, what kind of incursions or what sort of things have they been doing to try to lay claim to it? The Chinese have been on occasion sinking fishing boats from other countries, and the Chinese have also been interfering with oil and gas, exploitation in the Chinese are sending their survey ships and using their coast guard vessels to harass and intimidate the oil rigs of other countries. These are the kinds of things that the United States is saying is now illegal. Now. The US recently sent two aircraft carriers to the region. Is this a significant move? While the last time that the United States sent two aircraft carrier battlegroups to the South China Sea was twenty fourteen so i. do think that it is significant. It is a signal to China that the united. States is not going to stand silent while Chinese are seeking to control the waters and airspace in the south. China Sea. Politically speaking, why is the US taking this on now? What do you think about the State Department's timing? Well I think that we've seen increase Chinese coercion against other countries, so I do think it's in response to Chinese actions, but it's also part of the larger strategy. Two step pressure on China because of actions that China's taking across the board. We have seen trump administration topper policies recently on Hong Kong, where the Chinese are implementing very harsh, national security legislation also in sin. John, where the Chinese Bill Reeducation camps and incarcerating essentially millions of readers, and also Cossacks, so the South China Sea policy is of a piece. It is toughening trump administration's policy toward China. Bonnie if you were to advise the trump administration right now on this matter in the South China Sea. What would you tell them? Well I think the trump administration is taking some of the right actions. They are conducting with called freedom of navigation operations to make sure that the waters of the South China Sea are open to all I support that and support this change in policy and I would advocate at the United States follow through in a way that it will continue to have on board with them other countries because we cannot take on..

The president forced out McGuire last week after learning intelligence officials briefed lawmakers on Russia's efforts to intervene in the upcoming election on trump's behalf McGuire also drew the ire of trump back in the fall when he publicly defended the whistle blower at the center of the impeachment scandal. I believe the whistle blower is operating in good. Faith will then the law. They couldn't be in good faith that they were acting as a political hack. Could THEY MR Chairman? My job is to support and lead the entire intelligence community that individual works for me therefore it is my job to make sure that I support and defend that person as acting director. Grenell will serve in this role until March eleventh when the president is expected to put forth his nominee for a permanent director pool. Then need to be confirmed by the Senate and although his tenure will be temporary Grenell is already leaving his mark on the historically nonpartisan intelligence community by ousting Andrew Hallman the number two official in the office of the Director of National Intelligence late last week. Renounce nells appointment is raising concerns for many within the intelligence community as well as Democratic lawmakers the staffing shakeup is just the latest point of tension between the trump administration and the intelligence community and also part of a wider purge taking place in Washington DC following trump's acquittal in the senate for more on this and what it means for US national security. We're joined by Ned. Price Director of policy and communications at National Security Action and former spokesperson for the National Security Council. You also spent eleven years that the CIA. Ned thanks for being here. Good to be with you. Also with us. Is Daniel Dresner professor of international politics at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University? Daniel thanks for coming back on the show. Thank you ned. I WANNA start with Joseph Maguire. Who President trump ousted from the role of acting her last week for basically doing his job operate. Well that's right if you read and believe what has been printed in the New York Times and Washington Post. The story is alleged that what sparked president trump's Ir was essentially as you said just McGuire authorizing one of his senior officials to go to Congress to brief on The latest with regard to election security. But it's more than just doing his job ruin. It's actually a legal requirement for the past forty years. The intelligence community has been required to keep Congress fully and currently informed of issues that are Germane to its oversight. And frankly as we learned In the whistle blower case and impeachment There is nothing that is more integral To the issue of congressional oversight than the sanctity and security of our elections and with the New York Times reported last week is that president trump grew so angry that the senior deny official the official responsible for the security of our elections Actually Congress on what she was legally required to do And therefore essentially terminated Joseph Maguire from his post weeks before he was required to step down now. Now just to take a quick step back. What exactly does the director of National Intelligence and its office do well. There's really no Mold for the director of National Intelligence because there have only been five individuals who have held this post in a Senate confirmed capacity since the post was created by Congress in two thousand four. If you look at the legislation that creates the post. There are three primary charges That this individual shall Carry forward the first is a serve as the head of the intelligence community as you mentioned in your introduction there seventeen departments and agencies including the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. That form part of this intelligence community enterprise The second is to serve as the chief intelligence adviser to the president and typically what this has meant over the past Near lead to decades fifteen or so years now is that The deny will play a key. Role briefing the president on what's in the PD be or the president's daily brief Several Times a week this individual has tended to start national security policy meetings the NFC meetings that meet in the White House Situation Room that the president attends this individual and they've all been men's date This individual will provide an intelligence brief sort of set the table For the policy discussion That is to follow in three. The legislation charges individual with overseeing the implementation of the strategic agenda of the operational capabilities and objectives of the intelligence community. Now the five individuals. If I've menu held this post have all served this function in slightly different ways? I think if you talked to intelligence veterans The model that people typically look to for how this role should be carried out is President Obama's second deny Jim Clapper Jim Clapper avoided some of the pitfalls of getting to operationally involved in the decisions of the CIA and other intelligence agencies under his purview but played the role of a coordinator of Someone who steered the intelligence enterprise strategically At the macro level quite Abeille quite effectively. And frankly I think that is precisely what the legislation envisioned Daniel. Let's talk a little about Richard Cornell than you acting director. He has been described as a trump loyalists. But it wasn't always that way was it no wasn't apparently during the two thousand sixteen presidential campaign Grinnell tweeted a number of times about how trump was basically unfit for office I believe those tweets have now been scrubbed Which is understandable given the premium that trump clearly places on loyalty in terms of When he hires his national security professionals so what do you make of the fact that someone who was a critic is now in this position? Well this is basically. Where did this is the the bed? You have to lie in if you are a Republican that wants to serve in this administration In some ways the hiring of Grenell through the appointment of Grenell to the acting denies Spot is consistent with the larger pattern in which trump has made it extremely clear that the first and frankly only criteria that he places in terms of who he's going to pick for his senior national security appointments is loyalty to the President You know there was a story that came out. I believe in the Times over the weekend that says that Rob O'Brian whose Trump's fourth national security advisor Apparently open some of his National Security Council meetings by essentially distributing printouts of trump's tweets In which that is supposed to be the way in which they are going to implement policy they basically take his tweets and try to reverse engineer them. You can argue to some extent. Grenell is simply an extension of the way that O'Brien is running the except now within the intelligence community Grenell's also known sort of as a gadfly on twitter When he was he was from Germany he and he still is. Us Ambassador Germany. Actually he was known primarily for Engaging the media particularly Fox News he was generally according to reports basically isolated within Germany itself. Now as you mentioned he has no national intelligence. Experience Does this suggests that the president couldn't find an appropriate loyalists from within the ranks of the intelligence community. I think that's a safe or the other way to think about it. Is that essentially think of it as a van Diagram? Which is you WANNA find? Simultaneously someone who is considered a has sufficient background inexperienced actually competently run deny and someone who is loyal to Donald Trump. And the intersection of those two circles is either narrow or non existent You know there's been reports that I think Pete Hoekstra might be the The person that trump puts forward You could sort of make a case that hoaxer might be qualified. He was remember. Congress served on the Intelligence Committee. I believe but in some ways what what's telling is that the the whoever trump announces the permanent appointment might not even matter necessarily because at least for this year because by once he announces that appointment and is puts it forward to Congress. It rebooted the amount of time. The Grenell conserve is acting denied. Gives him another six months? Basically and so the interesting question is going to be will trump ever be able to pick someone that actually gets passed in a confirmation. There's no way Grenell would It's telling the degree to which the Republicans I believe outside of Roy Blunt Senator has said absolutely nothing in favor of Grenell as the appointment and so the question.

"Think him delivering on his anti immigrant agenda for his supporters so there are no countries countries that are I guess predominantly non Brown meaning white countries that have been affected by by by these bands. Correct none in fact Belarus was floated as being an additional country country. That would be in in this version of the band but in the end it wasn't there so it was the usual suspects in a way. What are we hearing from? The People in leadership In in these countries that are targeted by expansion. I mean our our is the leadership in Nigeria or or are they fighting. This was certainly the Nigerian government. It has been quite vocal about saying look you know. We don't even expect this to happen. We had no idea we would be on this band which is really interesting. Because if you The State State Department has said and it's reflected in the document that they had extensive consultations with officials from all of these countries Before in order to give them an an opportunity to improve the situation before they implemented this. And that's clearly at odds with what the Nigerian government is saying. I think you'd have to also understand that you you know. Most countries are not in a strong position. vis-a-vis the United States the One a lot from the US. This is one piece of what they want. Nigeria obviously is a large and populous country entry. And it can actually say something So I am not surprised that we're not hearing more from other countries because these are fairly small countries which don't have a a huge Ability to stand up to the United States now we heard earlier in the segment The audio of people flooding in J. F. K.. Airport protesting The original travel ban but of course the supreme core did Decide in trump administration's favor is ever percents. That basically this is sort of settled matter so I mean to be clear this. What the trump administration what? The Supreme Court did was to say that the injunction against the travel ban was not Upheld right so had been enjoined by the lower courts that is to say that they said you can't implement this and that it does require a preliminary Review of whether or not it is constitutionally valid and the Supreme Court said no Yukon Enjoin has banned. Because we're not that clear that it's unconstitutional. Litigation against the Muslim ban is continuing in fact just last week we had oral argument in the Fourth Circuit down on in Richmond Virginia on the band. So that's definitely still an somewhat open issue so could this new expansion affect the Those proceedings I don't think so not directly at least because that is about a particular presidential proclamation and it's about a particular policy but I think the important thing here is that we shouldn't be relying on the courts again and again to block the trump administration because one of the things we see is oftentimes the lower courts the trial court and the appellate courts have been a pretty good wall against some of his. Most outrageous moves moves But when we get to the Supreme Court we've lost several times So I think is really important for Congress to step up to the plate over here I understand understand that there is A bill called a no Ban Act. which would actually reverse the Muslim ban and make it more difficult for the president? Take these kinds of arbitrary decisions in the future and it has the support of almost every Democrat in the house and I believe a vote is scheduled on that within the next week or two Nicole. We do have to wrap up pretty soon. But do you expect Protests along the lines where we saw JFK. Three years ago to be playing in the coming days I think unfortunately people's ability to have outrage is limited under the trump administration. We really just haven't seen Protesters coming out against the trump administration immigration policies since really the separation of immigrant families. So I'm not really anticipating that among everything else that's happening thing with impeachment and now with the primary starting there's unfortunately attention on a lot of other news events and not and not on this development. Nicole is an immigration reporter for Fox and five Patel is the CO director of the Brennan Center is Liberty and national security program. Thank you both for joining us today. Thanks thanks talk now about something that a lot of people experience reince but many fewer talk.

"The Trump administration's health and Human Services Secretary has announced that the agency will require pharmaceutical pharmaceutical companies to reveal the cost of their drugs in TV advertising the rule which could go into effect as early as this summer. Ideally will drive down costs by empowering consumers to compare prices that drug companies have treated as very very unfairly and the rules and restrictions within our country have been absolutely atrocious. Analysis now from Seth Denson president and co founder of GDP advisors and employee benefits and risk management company. Seth how do you see it? I've been tracking secretary been talking about this for quite some time and actually came out earlier this year saying this is going to be a priority and something he was going to push for. And so when the White House actually came out and said, this is we're going to do this thing. I was really excited that good first step. All right. So the transparency as it would seem with drug prices being announced in TV ads could we as consumers trust that information. Well here in light some of the challenge in the devil's always in the details. Right. So the complexity by which drugs or Baden sold in the United States is is immense. And what I mean by that is the drug marketplace actually worked a lot like the stock market does or the commodities market it daily based on what's called the aid WP or average wholesale price. And so here in lies the challenge of drug manufacturer posting a price on why? Because what secretary aids are wants them to do. The Trump administration wants them to do it to lift their eight WP, but that changes almost on a daily basis. So there is some some decal they're gonna need to be ironed out. The other thing that consumers need to be aware of why what is going to be posted. If the VP is not what the consumer will pay at least not directly because the consumer is going to pay whatever their insurance co payment or co-insurance level is at the end of the day that formularies varies based on which. Insurance company are using here's the indirect way that the consumers paying for it though. And why I'm glad that this is a ruling a rule that's going to be implemented. The consumers always paying the price of the drug whether that is through a copayment or whether that is through insurance premiums at the end of the day of the consumers paying for it. Most consumers don't know what the true costs of drugs. Are they only know what their co payment is? And if we want to start to reduce the cost of healthcare in the United States, the consumer needs to understand the entirety of the cost, generally speaking. I know that the pharmaceutical companies do not like this proposal is that because they're trying to hide something or because it actually is complicated. Based on the way, you explained it before. It's a little bit of both the primary thing that the pharmaceutical industry doesn't like about this is the latter. It's it's if it's the amount in which that's going to be disclosed on what the cost of these drugs are now understand though that in the distribution market of this. There's it's not just a pharmaceutical company that hates this. There's a lot of stakeholders or proverbial hands in the cookie jar of prescription drug if you will and the main one is what's called the pharmacy benefit manager, the PBS of which most are owned by insurance companies. You wanna talk about a conflict of interest, and they really don't want this out there because PBS make their money. I e v insurance companies make money based on the spread what I mean by that is the insurance company via the PBS will buy the drug and a price market up, and then resell it to the end consumer through the formularies structure, and that's how insurance companies owned owning PBS make a lot of money and. So this is going to allow the consumer to start to see behind the curtain of all those hands that are cookie jar. So there's a lot of people that do not want this to happen with Seth Stinson president and co founder of GDP advisers, and we're talking about President Trump's announced plans to require drug prices in TV ads. There are certain requirements here right at that would be a drug. That's been minimum thirty dollars a month. Minimum thirty five dollars a month. But again, that's yet to be clarified that thirty five dollars wholesale prices at thirty five dollars average co payment. So that's these are some of the details that are need to kinda come out. And how what is this really me? Also drugs are only sold by Medicare Medicaid. But that's virtually every drug. I mean, there's not many drugs that aren't sold on the Medicare Medicaid system. And so there again, there are detail there need to come out on this. But it's a good first step in the direction that we need to go to infuse transparency. Thanks, Seth Denson president and co founder of GDP advisors. It's twenty minutes now in.

"At science agencies to find out what the state of sciences on the inside. So what did you learn from that survey we learned a lot from federal scientists? And I I want to thank the thousands of scientists that took the time and energy to tell us about their experience as a as a scientist within the. Trump administration right now, and we learned largely that a lot of scientists are are working business as usual, they're working hard. They're doing their best work in this environment. Despite all of the headlines that we see about attacks on science by the Trump administration. We also saw some censorship of scientists particularly around climate change, many scientists told us that either they were told not to do climate related work or that they weren't directly told but had been avoiding climate change related work for you here retaliation or for fear of the consequences of doing so, and we're really worried about that self censorship. And the idea that scientists might be choosing not to talk about politically contentious topics like climate change because that will ultimately mean, we won't information won't reach the public won't reach decision makers, like shed. Yet. Feels like there's. Just this creeping. Rot or something that's kind of that slowly seeping in and how do you? How do you stop that? Yeah. It's very hard to control. And just I mean, that's important to say that you can of course. Pivots your focus within the government within scientific work. You know, different administrations have different policy priorities. And so it makes sense for them to say, we're really interested in focusing here. But what they cannot do is metal with the science and change what science said, and they can't stop science that's already being produced. And that's, unfortunately, a lot of what we're seeing Gretchen have have you ever thought about what you would do if you were a scientist right now working in federal government. I think it's a really tough call it a very different. It's a tough decision. Right. There's a lot of professional and personal consequences. If you're to call out the administration or blow the whistle so to speak. Fortunately. Now nowadays, there's lots of ways that scientists can get the word out about transgression or anything that they'd like to share externally. We have a we at UCS a have ways for scientists to communicate with us. We have a scientist protection project that allows scientists to confidentially speak to legal experts about situations. And there's lots of options they have now to share things. But it's a good question. I'm not sure if I'd be brave enough to blow the whistle. We'll be back in a minute.
