US Launches Investigation Into Louisville Police Practices
"Into Louisville's policing practices. The investigation comes as police in this Kentucky city are under fire after the March 2020 fatal shooting of Briana Taylor. She was unarmed and in her home while police were executing what's called a no knock search warrant. Good afternoon. I'm joined today by our recently confirmed Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco and I recently confirmed Associate Attorney General. I need a Gupta. They are leaders of great ability and integrity. And I am very happy that they have returned to serve again at the Justice Department. The department is stronger or their presence. United States Department of Justice is a federal law enforcement agency comprised of thousands of law enforcement officers who collaborate with and support our colleagues throughout our nation's police departments. We are uniquely aware of the challenges faced by those Serve as police officers. You see their commitment firsthand every day, and we recognize the complex issues that make their already difficult jobs even harder. The Justice Department is also charged with ensuring that the constitutional and federal statutory rights of all people are protected. As I explained last week, Congress has authorized the department to conduct pattern or practice investigations. Help it fulfill that responsibility. Those investigations and the recommendations and actions that ensue do not only protect individual civil rights They also assist police departments developing measures to increase transparency and accountability. Those qualities are necessary to building trust between law enforcement and the communities they serve. And community trust is essential to making policing more effective and less dangerous or officers on the street. Today. The Justice Department
After 20 Years of Advocacy, Black Farmers Finally Get Debt Relief
"Good afternoon thank you. It was a moment long in the making and it came in the most unexpected way. I promise the american people help was on the way. But today with the american rescue plan now sign in law we've delivered on that promise tucked inside of the one point nine trillion dollar couvert relief. Bill signed by president biden on march. Eleventh is a five billion dollar aid and debt. Relief carve out aimed at helping black and disadvantage farmers at a press conference a few days ago. A coalition of black farmers applauded the legislation debt. Cancellation for a legacy. Formers is a necessary step in the long journey to achieve restorative land justice for black farmers in this country by force and by choice. Black people have long deep. connections to american farmland. After the fall of slavery owning a piece of land that could be worked and farmed symbolized freedom for generations. black farmers accumulated tens of millions of acres of land. They feed their families and counts. Others with crops like sugarcane corn and beans all nurtured in time-honored tradition but there's a flip side over the course of the last century. Black farmers have lost or had stolen millions of acres of valuable land currently platforms two percent of all. Us farmers and european americans own over ninety eight percent of the farmland in the past farmers headland taken from them to white violence and unscrupulous business practices or they struggled to compete with their better resourced white counterparts. But for many of today's black farmers the biggest threat to their survival hasn't been the in your face kind of racism that their grandfathers may faced is the united states department of agriculture. And the stubborn systemic racism. They say kept them from getting the same access to government farm aid and assistance that white farmers have long taken advantage of.
Counting US Research Rodents
"I this week. We have online news editor david graham. We're gonna talk about how many rodents rats and mice are used in. Us biomedical research each year. Hi dave here. When i first saw on the lineup i immediately sent you a guess. For how many rats and mice might be used by researchers every year. I was way off. What was your guest. it was eight million. Okay pay everyone listening you. Guess your own guests. I was way off. But the one clue so dave according to the study that we're going to be talking about today how many rats and mice are used or our house for biomedical research each year in the us. So according steady two hundred and eleven million. So i was way off. Were you surprised by this number. Kind of i mean the behind the study whose names larry carboni. He's at the university of california san francisco. Garri actually just left. There had written a book about fifteen years ago where he made a guest admit that was eighty to a hundred million so i heard a very high figure before but that is a lot higher than what other groups have estimated. The estimate tends to be around fifteen to twenty million. Why is this number mysterious. Why are people guessing or estimating how many of these animals are used in research. And this isn't something that we track greg. So there's something called the animal welfare act which is a federal law. That's been around for more than fifty years actually. Nbc wanted allows is the united states department of agriculture. Usda to go to my universities private companies any facility that has animals that are covered by that act usda goes in and inspect those animals for welfare counts them now. The problem is that there are only limited number of animals that are covered by that act that includes dogs cats rabbits monkeys but mice and rats and birds for the most part have always been excluded or mostly that excluded from that that means that the only agency that would go from especially as is counting. These animals is now counting mice rats. Nobody actually has any idea how many of these animals are being used in the us facilities. How does this value. Though this one hundred ten million or maybe the low value of twenty five million compare with those other lab animal populations that you're talking about rabbits cast dogs it's vastly more should matter who's number you believe. Everybody seems to agree that lab mice and rats makeup at least ninety three percent of all the mammals used by medical research so the total number all those other animals. I was talking about these animals that are covered by the welfare in the whole united states is about seven hundred
Could Science Build a Better Grain?
"The ever increasing need to feed Earth's growing population and not always cautious ways that we grow our food are some of the factors that have put our plants environment in peril. Farming accounts for nearly a quarter of human emissions that are warming the atmosphere, and as much as half of that comes from plowing the soil to grow crops, such as wheat, corn and soybeans, which releases carbon, dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide, the latter byproduct of fertilizer use, but researchers have been working on ways to reduce the harmful environmental effects of agriculture. One potentially promising innovation is a grain the goes by the trademarked name, her Kneza like familiar grains it can be made into flour for use inbred breakfast, cereal, and other foods, and also as an ingredient in products, ranging from beard ice cream. But unlike many other grains, Kerns is a perennial plant meaning that once it's planted. It'll keep coming back up year after year. It doesn't have to be replanted from scratch year, so it cuts down on labor. In addition, Kerns a has a deep root system it reaches over ten feet or three meters into the soil, and may help to sequester or capture atmospheric carbon that root system could also make more resistant to the impact of drought related to climate change in some areas. Currency was picked by the Land Institute a Salina Kansas based organization founded in Nineteen, seventy, six, the founder West Jackson recognized that a big problem of modern agriculture was that it was wearing the soil by focusing upon monoculture, growing a single crop in a certain area as that practice intensified on modern farms. It's destructive. Downsides became more and more evident in the form of erosion and worn out soil that required increasing amounts of fertilizer, creating increasingly polluted groundwater Jackson saw the development perennial grains to replace annual ones as a vital part of the solution to those problems. The Land Institute's website explains given that grains makeup over seventy percent of our global caloric consumption and over seventy percent of our. Our global croplands, transitioning from an extractive annual model to a perennial model is the best chance we have create truly regenerative food future, but developing new food crops is difficult and time intensive challenge back in Nineteen ninety-three scientists at the Rodale Institute and Other Research Organization identified a plant called intermediate wheat grass species related to wheat as a promising candidate that might be developed into a perennial grain. They worked with researchers from the United States. Department of Agriculture to breed the plant and improve its fertility and seed size in two thousand and three, the Land Institute began working with intermediate wheat grass as well after years of breeding the plant. They developed Kerns the trade name for their variety. In some ways, the process of developing a new crop hasn't changed much since prehistoric times. It involves breeding generation after generation of a plant taking the best from each new batch, and reading them together an effort to promote whatever desirable characteristics your seeking, however plant breeders these days have some tools that the ancients lacked the land institute employed a process called molecular breeding, in which they use genetic analysis to determine the traits of the plant should have even before it grows to full. Full size in order spot plants, but the most potential for breeding. We spoke with Rachel thrower the institute's Chief Strategy Officer. She explained it's taken us ten thousand years, and an intensified two hundred years of modern reading to get the crops. We have today. It's taken twenty to get Kerns to where it is, it might take another twenty to get it to competing at scale with the annuals. But in the effort to turn Kerns a into a commercially viable crop. There's a lot of work ahead. Stroller says that researchers are now working to increase the size number of seeds produced by each plant, and to increase the height of the plants. One drawback of currency is the unlike conventional wheat. It doesn't yet lend itself to free threshing, in which the edible grain is easily loosened from the plant. It instead requires another step called D. hulling to remove the skin of the seed before it can be turned. Turned into flour, that's because the stems remain green, after the plant matures conventional wheat withers, and is thus more easily separated in addition to breeding currency to make suitable for free threshing in the future, scientists are working to make the yield produced by real working farms match what they've been able to achieve on their research plots to that end. They're gathering data from the farmers to help figure out how to time the harvest. What settings would optimal for combines and other factors that might make the fields more productive. Researchers are also working with Baker's chefs, brewers and distillers to develop products that utilize curtains to help create a future market for it. One product already on the market is long route. Pale Ale who's maker Patagonia provision sites Kerns environmental positives in its marketing and last year general mills. CASCADIA and farms brand produced a limited edition. Honey toasted Kerns, a serial, which it sold to raise funds for the researchers. We also spoke via email was Steve, Coleman and assistant professor in the School of Environment and Natural Resources and Ohio State University, and the CO author of two thousand eighteen bioscience article on Kerns cultivation methods. He said up and working with Kerns F for ten years, and it's been a fun adventure. I think one of the things that I've really come to appreciate. Is that successfully? Domesticating developing a new crop requires more work than anyone can really appreciate.

Certain Moldy Food Can Be Safe to Eat
"To bring stuff production of iheartradio. Hey Brian stuff lauren. bo-bottle here it's happened to all of us that fresh peachy were so excited to eat as suddenly sporting a dime sized growth growth of fuzzy white stuff or your couple slices of Sandwich. Bread have sprouted. A few tiny flecks of green. Is it safe to just off the unappealing area and consume the rest mold on the surface of food usually appears as a green or white area often fuzzy in texture it can be widespread or appear to be isolated on just one section end end while it may look like the growth is on the surface. Mold is a fungus with a structure similar to a plant roots stock and spores the roots often invisible to the naked eye can grow quite deep the stock and spores are what you see on the surface and the spores can go airborne which can cause the mold to spread on the current object or contaminate nate neighboring foods. You've heard the expression. One bad apple spoils the barrel often if mold develops on one piece of food. It quickly spreads to other nearby air by food not alter bad and some are normal and even desirable some cheeses such as Rocca for our speckled characteristic. Blue Green veins achieve this quality. cheesemakers introduce a friendly edible type of mold. During the manufacturing process. The resulting cheeses are perfectly safe to eat uniquely creamy and very popular although admittedly both a funky and acquired taste but other modes can cause problems. Some cause allergic reactions or induced respiratory Tori distress which is why you shouldn't sniff etymology product and some moles produce poisonous substances called micro-toxins which can cause serious illness so so what about that tasty PT. We're looking forward to. Because of its soft texture in high moisture content. It's likely that further invisible contamination exists beyond just the surface. It's safer to send that item to the compost Bin Than risk illness for complete guidelines. On what foods are safe in aren't based on current research it's best to check with your garments food safety education resources. For example the United States Department of Agriculture Food Safety Inspection Service has a great guide at F S I s the USDA Dot Gov. But here's a starter guide on which moldy foods two toss end which to trim because while not all moldy foods are a total loss. Some should be skipped foods that are soft and moist are the most likely to be dangerous because the mold may be growing deeper into the product than it appears so if you see mold on the following toss him lunch meats bacon hotdogs cooked casseroles cooked grains or pasta breads and other baked goods soft fruits and vegetables like cucumbers tomatoes or berries aries jams and jellies peanut butter other legumes beans nuts soft cheeses yogurt and sour cream. Some of these particularly grain based products and certain produce tend to harbor mold that are particularly insidious because

Trump's decision to abandon the Kurds in Syria sends a dangerous message to US allies around the world
"And joining us now David Phillips the director of the peace building and writes programs each year for the study of human rights to Columbia University and a former senior adviser and foreign affairs expert to the United States department of state during the administrations of presidents Clinton bush and Obama the author of an uncertain ally Turkey and other ones dictatorship and the great betrayal how America abandon the kids and lost the Middle East he has an article at the institute for the study of human rights shock and disgust trump turns a blind eye to take a slaughter of Kurds in Syria welcome to background briefing David Phillips thank you and this outrageous move by Donald Trump which is similar to the move that he tried alea back in December which prompted the resignation of the head of the CNM and also the head of the defense department general Mattis is there anyway given the backlash Mr Connell Lindsey Graham everybody in the in the day a day the state everybody saying this is outrageously dangers and stupid idea given trumps record is he like to reverse himself all other tanks gonna roll in from Turkey early US forces have already left several observation posts on the Turkish Syrian border and I just got off the phone with a Syrian Kurd who indicated that Turkey's military is massing and hi there may be a cross border incursion tomorrow morning at dawn so it looks as though the train has left the station so there are a lot of unanswered questions here a lot of unknowns is an important question though in that we need to ask ourselves why after a year of negotiating with Turkey and finally coming to an agreement on managing relations between the U. S. Turkey and the Kurds have we suddenly reversed ourselves against the advice of the department of defense and state department officials what kind of deals with trump make with air to want what everyone promised him it is it's just another example of trump's malfeasance towards international relations where he's not trustworthy where he's a radic and unpredictable or is there more to it than that is there something criminal here that we're going to find out about well there is obviously in trump's business dealings with anyone trump hotels in Turkey but there's also the other possibility that comes from a lot of sources in the intelligence committee that I've talked to both former mostly foreman but some cards and even at the former deny himself general clapper said that he thinks let ME potent is Donald trump's case officer meaning than Donald Trump is on by potent he's a Russian assets so that might explain this this is there's no question that this looks like something the potent once not what America wants this something that Putin once that Iran loans and what a side once so when you look at the F. Russia Iran and Turkey they cooperate in Syria through something called the a star on a process which was created by those three countries as an alternative to the U. N.'s mediation one of the courage to now who do they turn to for protection if the U. S. abandons them they're likely to turn to the Syrian government answer the Russian government who hold all the cards so what's trumps interests here I want to put in his interest here for a lot of unanswered questions but for the Kurds who have been on the frontline who have sacrificed eleven thousand fighters in the past year at America's be hashed confronting isis they are just spinning with confusion they don't know who their friends are they don't know what to do next hi with friends like this who needs adversaries the courage and other interested parties around the world are watching and it just casts a pall over America's reliability as an ally and as a force for good in the world well I'm no fan of the Saudi Arabians and sent me a moment been sound mind but trump just sold out the Saturdays I mean amber when they they rainy and shot down a U. S. drone trump was about to respond and the aircraft were in the air heading towards Iranian targets when he reversed himself but in doing so the signal to the Iranians that trump and the Americans are a paper tiger and then the Iranians and lost a bunch of missiles on apple cake the big petroleum processing plant in Saudi Arabia that shuts down sandy's oil supplies and then hung out to dry the Emirati is already making a deal with the Iranians and the Saudis are also about to make a deal with the Iranians says essentially trumped sell them out and by the way if you look at it in the broader context it run again end up either directly or indirectly controlling something like fifty percent of the wells are old supplies since George W. bush handed over Iraq to Iran and looks like drum sanding either Saudi Arabian the Amorites and Yemen and the Iranians will so essentially moved into Syria and into Lebanon so they could be the next regional superpower so trump showing a remarkable ability to unify our countries around the world in opposition to US policy if he is so radioactive that he's bringing the Saudis and the Iranians together the amerock teas and the Iranians that's a remarkable development there are profound questions about whether or not Donald Trump he's competent to act as commander in chief informally those questions are being asked by both democratic and Republican senators and by senior members of the US military and missile occurs in the backdrop of an impeachment inquiry which is now entering its third week so David Phillips a you saying that you not necessarily agree with me that trump is quite likely to be a traitor and the importance pocket you're saying he made just be simply incompetent it could be both we don't know hi he certainly incompetent he's proven that over and over and based on the performance in Helsinki and what we seen as of late it would seem that he's also acting in a treasonous fashion good that the house of representatives is looking at this closely hi I'm looking forward to their findings and to the process moving to the center because the US can't handle another year of Donald Trump as president we certainly can't manage another term with him in the White House you just told us that at eleven thousand Kurdish fighters died fighting ISIS on our behalf in twenty two thousand more wounded and the guy the Kurds the ones that have the seventy thousand odd ISIS prisoners locked up in these concentration camps the Europeans don't want these people coming back and we're going to abandon them and by the way if the Kurds a guiding isis and the Turkish tanks rolling in I thank god to basically have to you know go fight the Texan leave ISIS to break out of the camps and do god knows what so the group the Kurdish militias will go and confront turkeys aggression and in the process these battle hardened ISIS fighters will escape for where are they going to go for the gold rush to their Turkish friends and restaurant in the free Syrian army remember what size president Biden said at Harvard in twenty fourteen but it was Turkey that facilitated the jihadi highway from song your foot to rock the provided weapons money logistics and medical care to wounded warriors on the battlefield so the whole jihadist phenomena the rise of ISIS can be linked back to Turkey's national intelligence agency which colluded with extremists and is directly responsible for the radicalization of Muslims in Syria and in the region so then if the tanks are gonna be rolling in dough on tomorrow the the White PJ the Syrian Kurds I just have you know they basically just have light weapons they don't have a crop they don't have tanks they just gonna be slowed down thing yes they will be slaughtered we saw last December in our friend who's active and the Kurds are highly motivated to protect their people but against Turkish air power hand Harmer they really don't have a fighting chance in Africa hundreds of Kurdish fighters were killed the area in the north and east of Syria is entirely flat on light unlike the terrain west of the Euphrates so Turkey just gonna roll in with their armor and they will commit a slaughter I'd just like they did the Armenian genocide of the turn of the century and with trump as president we are we will turn a blind eye to our allies who have sacrificed so much and fought so ably on our behalf shock and discussed is the understatement what the consequences will be seventy thousand caption ISIS fighters and their families all of him a radicalized as far as I can tell being sent loose again I mean what the American people at least notice that is a really bad idea that's a really bad idea but when they're set loose they're just going to go and no hug and kiss their Turkish brethren and no joy in the Turkish free Syrian army in fighting the occurrence remember was the courage to defeat ISIS who liberated Rocka Hannah and then went about who's on the border and got rid of the last vestiges of the caliphate there are currently still eighteen thousand ISIS fighters in Syria and hundreds of millions of dollars in their accounts now we replenished by these prisoners who will rejoin the battle crisis is back and the years so we spent fighting to defeat them it will be lost time and the Americans and the others who died in that because we'll have died in vain then you have to add to that that the US presence of any one thousand troops was stopping the Iranians from linking up from Tehran through Baghdad all the way to Damascus and also there's one thousand Americans were astride the Assad's oil fields which she desperately needs so he's going to be getting it all feels Iranians will have a free traffic that's that's why Lindsey Graham said the Iranians are just going to be I have enjoyed it it's crazy Iran strategic objective here is to establish a Shiite crescent from Tehran to clone to Baghdad through northern Syria to Lebanon and beyond through that corridor they transport weapons and missiles now they're going to be able to do that without any obstruction so why is the U. S. talking tough about Iran and then turning a turning away and letting your run get away with these kinds of this kind of aggression it just is in coherent it is strategically flawed it is practically in coherent and it is morally repugnant the US has
Five Years After Killing Eric Garner, NYPD Fires Officer Daniel Pantaleo
"Five years later and after several investigations in numerous protests NYPD commissioner James o'neal announced that he has fired the police officer at the center of the death of Eric garner he was an unarmed black man it was put in a chokehold and eleven times told the officer he couldn't breathe garner died while in that show called administered by officer Daniel Pantaleo York City mayor bill de Blasio spoke after the announcement for today in our city the end of the chapter that is brought our people so much pain and so much fear over his last five years the pain was because we all watch a human being die before our eyes on the video watch the man who should be still alive today and it was so difficult for all of us to reconcile what we saw with what we must believe about law enforcement our officers are here to protect us to keep us safe and yet we watched a man die on on our man and because so many people to ask what if that was my brother right there in that situation what of that was my son what if that was my father what if that was me the fear was because for a long time people wondered if we would be left without justice the place that we had turned for generations to place that was synonymous with making things right failed us United States department of justice absent and unwilling to act even to come to any decision for five long years but today we have finally seen justice done today we saw the N. Y. P. D.'s own disciplinary process act fairly and impartially for years people have questioned whether a police department can provide justice for all and we watched a fair and impartial trial we watch the objective decision by deputy commissioner of the NYPD affirmed by the first deputy commissioner and affirmed by the police commissioner justice has been done and that decision has resulted in the termination of officer Pantaleo but the victim Eric garner's family is says the fight is far from over calling for other officers involved in the arrest to be held accountable meantime ventilators attorney is vowing to take legal action to get his job back the ruling received praise from many local leaders there in New York City but it was blasted by the head of the
Ethical Eggs: One million ways to sex a chicken egg
"We have staff writer aggression vogel. She's gonna talk to us about ethical eggs. Hi gretchen hi okay okay. What is an ethical. I feel my mind would went in so many directions when i first heard this term and i just wasn't sure so there are several different kinds of ways as you can make eggs more ethical but in this case we're talking about the problem that egg industry has with male chicks it turns out that male chicks folks are of no use they can't lay eggs and because chickens that lay eggs the layers have been bred to be super specialized for putting in all of their energy into laying eggs. Their brothers don't put on meet fast enough to be marketable for their meat so hatcheries sort chicks when they hatch watch by hand. Their workers called chick. Sexers is sort the mail from the females and the females go to farms to grow up and be layers and the males are killed the by gassing or by putting them to a shredder. This is not a particularly appetizing aspect of egg production and so an animal emel rights groups and a wealthy groups and consumers and governments and even the egg industry would all like to find a way to end the practice this the idea has been around for a long time the idea that doesn't seem like a good idea to have all these eggs wait till they had and then half of them. You have to basically get rid of the animal. Why has it been so hard to sex a chicken egg as opposed to a check. It seems like it should be pretty easy thing to solve but it turns out out that there's lots of ideas where it works in the lab and getting it to actually work on a hatchery floor at the scale that hatcheries currently work look at is a technical challenge so after is the large ones process fifty thousand eggs in our now. That's a challenge for the testing methods that have been developed so far but scientists have a lot of ideas and they're getting closer and there are some coal free eggs or kill free eggs on grocery store shelves in berlin where i live. I have a few in my refrigerator right now. <hes> those rely on technology that involves lasers and robots correct to be selling leaguer actually describe how those how that it's based on actually a hormone test so female chicken embryos produce a hormone that's related to estrogen in and they produce it in enough quantity to be detected about day nine development. An egg usually takes twenty one or twenty two days to hatch so not not quite halfway through development and a company in germany called select has developed a robot machine that uses a laser to poke a tiny tiny hole in the eggshell and then suck out a tiny tiny bit of the embryonic fluid that surrounds the embryo they can use that drop of fluid not test for the presence of the hormone and if the hormone is there the eggs are sent back to the incubator to continue to develop if it's not the e extra either unfertilized or their mail and they're then frozen and pulverized and used for protein for egg powder that can be added to animal feed feed or can go to other industrial uses. We talked earlier about how many eggs get processed in a hatchery per hour. How much can this robot handle right now all right now it handles about three thousand eggs in our which is enough for small hatcheries but they're trying to scale up. They're also trying to you. Move the test bit earlier in development because some animal welfare groups say that by day nine. There's a chance that chicks could already feel pain. There's there's central nervous. System has just started to develop. That's a point of debate but most people agree that earlier in development we better you save more money. You don't have to incubate the male eggs for as long other companies are trying to earlier as you mentioned. They're trying to do it faster and cheaper and one of them is even relying on a method that doesn't okla hole in the egg. Can you talk about that one. Yes there's a company that is trying to capture some of the volatile molecules that leak through an eggshell starting starting as soon as the egg is laid and there are other researchers who have found that you can actually determine execs based on the differences in these molecules else. It's not quite ready for primetime yet in part because they're trying to do it before the exit enter the incubator within the first thirty six <unk> hours of the egg being laid and that means that they have to do it at refrigerator temperatures that the f._d._a. requires eggs to be kept at before they enter the incubator and that's proving a bit of a technical challenge but they're still working on it. Okay what about this group. That's looking to gene at it the chickens so that one of the excesses glows. There's actually a couple of groups that are trying. This groups in israel and australia are pursuing the technology. They use crisper to to add a gene to one of the chickens sex chromosomes that turns out the birds have the opposite set of sex chromosomes from mammals. Mammal mammals have x and y chromosomes females ex- ex- meal's x. y. But in birds males are z._z. And females have a w and z chromosome so they put a fluorescent marker on the z chromosome of email layer and then they made that bird with a regular mail and all of the males that result from that meeting kerry z._z.'s carry the marker gene from their mothers z chromosome right the females. Don't carry any marker. They're just regular w._b._z. W for mom and z. From dad and dad doesn't have the edit exactly then then you can put the eggs under a fluorescent light and the male ones glow that enables you to sort them out and send them off to other uses where the unmarked eggs can go on and develop and become regular laying hens but don't have any edited jeans and their eggs they lay also don't have any edited jeans. The scientists who working on this are optimistic that they'll be able to use the technology without having to go through all the hoops that a genetically modified organism would normally really have to go through since the end product isn't actually genetically modified. It's not clear that that's really going to be the case but they're optimistic that that argument will help to persuade both consumers and regulators that this is a good way to go so we've talked about sampling the fluid and looking for hormones. We've talked about smelling volatile coming coming off the eggs and now we've talked about teen editing to make one aglow enough the other are there any other techniques that people are trying to sex eggs very early in their redevelopment. There's a whole bunch jazz some something to try to use m._r._i. To look at the embryo there are teams that are trying to use machine learning to <music> quantify some of the subtle shape and size differences in male and female eggs. Although it's not clear that that'll ever quite accurate enough but some people are trying and and there's another group that's using spectroscopy to analyze exit day four after lane where they cut a hole in the eggshell. That's about a little more than a centimeter wide and then they shine a laser light on a blood vessel and the difference in the reflected spectrum veteram from that laser can tell them whether the embryo is a male or female. That is another technique. That's close to being implemented in a hatchery in germany but isn't quite there yet. Wow you bought some of these ethical eggs yeah in berlin in germany. Is this something that is a global concern and the approach will most is likely be ruled out much more broadly than in europe. Yeah it is a concern. I think the first public awareness kind of came from europe especially from germany from animal welfare groups here here and they've been pushing for a long time for a solution and the german government has taken very seriously and has given a fair amount of funding to try and find a solution and in fact the current government has promised in its coalition agreement to end the practice sometime within its four-year term. German lawmakers actually considering banning the practice although scientists. I talked to hope that doesn't happen but welfare. Groups in the u._s. are also pushing for a solution and the united egg producers in the u._s. Us has said that they want to end the practice by next year. They said that in two thousand sixteen whether twenty twenty will really work is still up in the air but the u._s._d._a. The united states department of agriculture is also offering a prize a six million dollar prize for a solution to this problem and they said they eh got twenty one entries from ten countries for their initial round of seed funding and they'll make some of their first awards next month. This seems like a lot of if people are working very different angles. Is that surprising to you. One thing that's kind of cool about the stories that everybody's on the same page everybody but he would like to solve this problem. Is one of my sources said. It's not a problem that needs social change to solve the right technology can take care of it and everybody's motivated to to find a technology that will work so most people involved optimistic that the final hurdles will finally be overcome and soon there will be no more calling calling of male chicks.

That's about forty million people experienced food insecurity which is the lack of financial resources to buy sufficient food at least some of the time in two thousand seventeen according to the United States Department of Agriculture one way of fighting. This could be community food forests food forests are far cry from community gardens as they're not rows and rows of standard plant beds instead they're designed to mimic natural forests using food bearing trees roots Greens vines and other the plants while making the most of the space available as a result food forests are picturesque and calming gathering areas for community members looking to enjoy a piece of nature while picking whatever produce they need for free. We spoke with Giuseppe Tele Rico an agronomist. Specializing in permaculture food security and environmental management systems who is also the founder and manager of the world permaculture association. He said the concept behind food forests is that natural forests are highly productive in their own right and totally self-sustainable renewable over extremely long timeframes so by following the functional patterns that exist in the natural forest and adapting them to the conditions of light and space that each species need in order to be productive. We can create very low maintenance production zones that are essentially harvest systems by mimicking natural patterns in nature as much as possible. The hope is that every species needs humans animals and plants will be met in a sustainable way. Although there's some wiggle room for layout based on the local environment a typical food enforced is designed with the canopy of large nut and fruit trees followed by a lower tree layer of dwarf fruit trees nixed is a shrub layer composed of shrubs that produce berries followed by a layer of herbs and then by root crops such as potatoes and carrots the soil surface is planted with ground cover specific crops and finally layer vertical climbers vines like grapes or Kiwis is incorporated. Most of these spaces aren't even all that huge in fact when it opens Atlanta's urban food forest Brown's. Sounds mill will be the city's first in the largest in the U._S..

It's not unusual for community churches schools and governments to who established food forests of whatever size they can manage with the help of civic organizations in volunteers but one food forest in a given city isn't going to totally eradicate the issue of hunger of course Atlanta urban food forest is one prong of a citywide effort to make healthy food accessible possible to eighty five percent of city residents by the year two thousand twenty two.

Are Present to prevent people from accidentally damaging the plants or taking produce. That isn't ready yet. The movement is now gaining steam but food forced took awhile to get off the ground. The ASHVILLE food force was the first of its kind in the modern United States although Tele Rico. I'm not that human agroecology systems have been used for ages many communities such as those in Java Bali New Guinea and parts of central and South America a couple more popped up here and there after ashes launch nineteen ninety-seven but it wasn't until after Seattle's Beacon Hill food forest forest garnered much publicity in two thousand twelve these projects really started to gain traction as of two thousand eighteen there are more than seventy food forests established across the United States and thousands more around the world.

Good Teachers, Bad Deal
"This recording is the first time that Caitlyn McCollum talked to NPR. She was teaching Spanish at a public high school in Tennessee. Most of our students came from a relatively low income, rural community. I told them today that I had an interview with you all and. Many of them as they left class to good luck. Good luck miss McCollum. We really hope things, you know, are, are putting emotion from this interview. Back in college Caitlyn had made this deal with the United States Department of education. She promised to teach at a low income school for four years in exchange, the DO gave her sixteen thousand dollars for college free and clear not alone after three years of doing exactly what she said she would she got the letter? I remember going out to the mailbox even opened it up at the mailbox came inside and sheer panic just sat in the letter was about the deal. Caitlyn had made with the department of education. Yes, she had spent three years, teaching exactly where she said, she would, but there was a problem with Caitlyn's paperwork saying that she was teaching where she said, she would the government had allegedly received that paperwork to. Or maybe three days late, seemingly, not a big problem after all the got the paperwork, except as the letter explained in this case, the punishment was that the entire deal was now torn up and cancelled Caitlin was going to have to repay the department of education, every penny. They gave her back in college. I remember my husband coming in the house. And I was sobbing and just absolutely sobbing. And we actually had just found out that I was pregnant with our first child and then to be hit with this. I feel like it's so very unjust and unethical. But that there's nothing that I can do because I'm such a small fish against the

He's talking about a gun, registering, and I oppose the idea of gun registry. Government doesn't need to know any more than they already know government registry is about control. It isn't about safety. It isn't about safety. This is a lie. It's about control.

"The United States Department of Justice so much to delve into you with a Christian. Thank you so much for joining us. Good morning Mary. Let's I have to start with this story though here. Locally with this Virginia school, South County high school in Virginia with an art display and a student was awarded fantastic art work as good drying. But the drawing is of a person who's supposed to be a Jewish person. With stereotypical has got a yarmulke on the man has gone, very big nose carrying a bag of money and on the side of it. It's as Jewish people. No Jew in the world. Understands the importance of money and one of the ward for this piece of quote, unquote, our work what in holy hell is going on. I wish you could see it. The listeners could see at the the the pencil drawing. Looks like something from dish Dermer, which was yes, strikers propaganda piece that he published for the Nazi party. I mean, it literally looks like something right out of there with the hook nose and dollar signs. And he's standing next to a well, which of course, the Jews poison. I mean, look what on earth is going on in our public schools in Fairfax county, and I don't care if this was satire, whatever. But what on earth is going on that the teachers feel comfortable with this kind of thing giving it an award, by the way, this was given an award by this radical nutjob teacher and the other part of the story is the reaction to the criticism. Yes, yes. Tell us about that. Well. Well, after Mike Ginsburg of the local Republican group complained about it and said, you know, this really hungry going on. There was this over the top reaction from the teacher the art teacher who by the way is a social Justice warrior of the tenth degree. You know, blaming President Trump for this. In other words, this anti-semitic piece of art that won a prize at Fairfax county schools. The reason that it was done is because the President Trump, and she wrote a nasty gram. This is a public schoolteacher government employees wrote a nasty gram to an to a citizen Fairfax county talking about S whole countries and blaming President Trump and how he's dividing our nation. And and he is he is praised white supremacists. Which of course is completely false. What is going on in Fairfax public schools where this sort of thing is normalized? She also says that this is as a portfolio of eight works. She also focuses to the student focuses on blacks way to talion Pakistanis, use et cetera. So I can imagine what the other pictures look like. But she says this is a definite. This is an illustration of anti stereotypes what she's guess leading us, right? But but don't forget, I mean, this is part of this toxic division that is taking place in the country. And and apparently now in Fairfax county public schools where you attempt to divide everybody with these nasty, racial stereotypes. Whether it's Dustin Sma latte in Chicago, claiming the white people beat him up, which we know was a fairytale or Fairfax county public schools with the disturbing drawings of hook nose Jews next to wells. We're all they care about is money. I mean, look, we don't need this. You know, you talk about division in the country will stop allowing your students to draw racial stereotypes. Then again, maybe it's okay in Virginia because you know, two of the three statewide constitutional. Officers are keen on black face. I can't figure it out. So what should Fairfax county public schools do? Well, they can't have teachers writing nasty letters constituents like this, by the way, it's not just the constituent. It was a rabbi a rabbi. Who wrote a new is concerned at she wrote back that this is totally fine. Yeah. I mean, this teacher should be fired. Let let let go of people who are engaging the sort of poisonous. Toxicity with our our children in government schools. That's step. One step two is just simply recognize the division for what it is shouldn't be taking place on on school time. Yeah. Absolutely. Let's let's let's move on here. It's about Eric Holder because this goes along the same lines Eric Holder had this to say yesterday in an interview with with Aaron Meltzer right here these things. Well, let's make America. Great again. I think to myself exactly when did you America? Great. Now is Ari Melber. Excuse me. It's his his take care on miracle was never great. You know, let me tell me about when America was great. Is that part of what we're seeing here tied in with this on the heels of this Virginia school story. What is he talking about? Well, let's set the record straight right now America is the greatest nation that ever existed on the face of the earth. That is a fact I will defend that fact, they will debate Eric Holder anywhere anytime this shows, you the rancid. Rot that this attorney general had and how it manifested in policies, whether it was him stoking racial toxic city in Ferguson, what he's claiming is part of this cultural Marxist narrative that have common in colleges now parenting, Fairfax county public schools that America is not great that America's to blame for the world's ills it took my breath away in part. But at the same time, it it really was no surprise from this, man. He is I wrote in my book he carries around things in his wallet. That are just spine chilling. We're gonna we're gonna get more than that. Because we're going to hold you over we're going to get more on Eric Holder. Also, Adam Schiff and max boot Seventy-three on WFAN..
Rookie farmers in California are turning to nonprofit groups to boost their business savvy
"There are going to the United States Department of agriculture more than two million farms in this country of those the USDA says about a quarter are being run by beginning. Farmers people who are relatively new to farming. And so might not have the skills that are required beyond the actual farming part. Thank the part that involves running a small business. So some California nonprofits are stepping in with business mentoring services for rookie farmers out here. Julia Mitri reports as part of the California dream project them again is looking over her nine acre farm, she keeps her eye on a small farm crew moving along a row of strawberry. Plants Maganya grew up in a family of farm labourers. She was sharecropper in leader worked in plant nurseries now at fifty eight she's an independent farm owner on California's central coast, but she's still considered a beginner because she's run her farm for under ten years on this cloudy afternoon. She's got a visitor. Bet that. That's David months Etta. He's part of a California nonprofit, the kitchen table visors that works with small organic farmers and ranchers who are trying to scale up in Medina talk about what mix of crops to plant and how to get Bank loans. He asked her how the harvest is going on with clinical chech-, either left. But if. This. Mcgowan who says it's the last strawberry harvest because the rain's coming. This is still a better yield than twenty seventeen when she had some difficulties casino to make or Prelic seal for one thing. Macgyver says her husband and farming partner had open heart surgery. She couldn't harvest, but it helps the Chee an adviser mindset had been working on a cash flow spreadsheet, it let the Bank see that Maganya was tracking money in and money out. And she had a plan. We don't tell them. What to do? We guide them. We help them ask questions. Ultimately there the business owners. And so we're trying to help them develop this business mindset. There's really no blueprint for becoming a small-scale farmer in California. Kristen Leauge drives tractor along a small plot of land she farms in the town of winters west of Sacramento, that's about one hundred fifty miles north of Medina's farm Leach Korean adoptee got interested in traditional Korean farming. As a way to connect with her heritage. When I started my farm, it wasn't because I felt like a competent business person or head any even basic financial literacy as an individual. She started out working for other farmers, and she had a restaurant job growing veggies was just a side hustle now lead. Choose thirty six actually makes a living growing. Heirloom Korean chilies, herbs and melons for an upscale San Francisco restaurant. So it's sort of been like accidental business owner, that's the case. For a lot of beginners says Evan wig of the community alliance with family farmers. The nonprofit advocacy group runs training and networking for rookie. Farmers. We see farmers over and over again coming with a passion and interest in knowledge in crop production in working with soil health management. And really, that's usually what draws new people to agriculture not the prospect of sitting behind a computer filling out spreadsheets for crop planning, which is also part of the job in California land close to markets like San Francisco is expensive and hard to come by and when small farms fail wig says it's almost always comes down to some element of business. Planning farmer. Kristen Leach also gets guidance from kitchen table advisor, she says the connection has helped her scale upper business and expand seed production for a lot of farmers like that's just such a huge boost to just not feel alone in it or have people that are kind of advocating for you and can provide resources of one kind or another Leach says she's still learning from her advisor. She no longer runs her. Arm paycheck to paycheck. But she also says she's still stubborn enough to farm her own way
Could a Vaccine Help Save Honey Bees?
"Killers. Don't make any effort to involve media or best Gators. They're very secretive. They don't want attention. They almost want their crimes to go on notice. But the idea of committing a crime, and then calling up the police and bragging about it. That's a whole 'nother level of terror.

This is monster the zodiac killer. Listen and subscribe at apple podcasts or on the iheartradio app. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren Vogel bomb here. You might have heard about how Honey bees are doing poorly. These days it's different from the situation. Many of the world's vulnerable creatures find themselves in a small obscure Amazonian tree frog or even a gorgeous polar bear, we want these creatures to thrive and live their lives. But are we willing to change our lifestyles to make it happen with like to think? So, but maybe not the plummeting honeybee colonies situation is a bit different though, because if honeybees aren't flourishing neither are people and eventually people won't eat as result as honeybees go around collecting, the nectar, they want from plants in the process, they disperse pollen from one plant to another making it possible for those plants to bear fruit. Honeybees aren't native to most of the places they live over the course of human history. We've carried the insects from their native range in southern Europe Africa and the Middle East to ecosystems all over the planet at this point. They are the most successful. Pollinators in the world. And among the things they pollinate are a lot of our crops. The United States Department of agriculture estimates that they pollinate about fifteen billion dollars worth of apples, peaches and almonds every year in the United States alone. So when US beekeepers lose forty percent of their colonies as happened in two thousand seventeen we twenty-first-century humans, not only take notice we start frantically trying to fix the problem. Part of the problem, though, is that these losses sometimes called colony collapse. Don't have a singular route beekeepers call it the four P's poor nutrition pesticides, pathogens and parasites. And so there's no silver bullet remedy, but the most promising immediate solution seems to be figuring out a way to prevent microbial disease. And that's where be vaccinations come in. Invertebrates like us Maximes work through stimulating the immune system to make antibodies against a particular disease. The vaccine immunizes the individual since invertebrates like bees don't make antibodies. Scientists have long thought immunizing them would be impossible. But at twenty fifteen study discovered the bees transfer immunity to their offspring through protein called vitality. Jenin it's an ingredient in their Ed yoke vaccinating a be wouldn't help that be. But if you vaccinated the Queen of a hive, the only female that reproduces she could pass her immunity onto her children and grandchildren through her eggs. The new vaccine will treat for American foul brood or af be a highly infectious and fatal disease that quickly devastates hives, the bacterium that causes it infects larva, and there's no cure once it's found. The high must be destroyed the bacteria are hardy to they form protective spores around themselves and the survive dormant in a wide range of conditions for over fifty years and wake themselves back up when they find themselves transferred via shared equipment, for example, to a new hive in the eighteen hundreds and early nineteen hundreds American foul brood decimated bee populations in the US in some parts of the country beekeepers who didn't immediately destroy infected colonies could be thrown in jail. The vaccine is in the testing phases and most likely headed for beat boxes near you. And don't worry. It doesn't require a tiny doctors chair in an itty bitty needle to deliver the vaccine the Queen bee can drink the medicine and a little sugar water passed along to her offspring.

"united states department" Discussed on 860AM The Answer
"AM the answer. Must've you out there. Thank you know, climate change doesn't really impact me every day. Yeah. Well, it does. Now, I can tie directly the rising sea and air temperatures to supercharge natural disasters that we've seen just this year. Mike hurricane Harvey and the campfire and they say the hotter. The temperatures the higher the sees a more devastation. There will be I believe in my lifetime that the so-called. The shoreline of North Carolina, you know, Nantucket and all of the. Offshore islands are actually going to disappear. So if you want to see the outer Bank, I'd hurry. In twenty years. Probably not gonna be there. The United States Department of homeland security, you know, those are those people who among other things manage the secret service, and and the border patrol and ice and all of those. Major national security issues. They would they say they say the number one threat to the homeland this climate change is these rising seas and hotter. Temperatures these bigger devastating events. That FEMA just is overwhelmed by FEMA is a part of homeland security, and you know, who else is really alarmed about this the United States Department of defense. We have thirty five hundred defense installations around the world. And half of them are at risk of damage or complete destruction by climate change is us like hotter. Temperatures and rising sea levels. And remembered the sea is going to rise four point three feet. Do you know, that's almost all of me? I mean, my nose would barely be above the water. If that were to come to pass, most of my face would probably be out of the water, but not much more than that. We could get your life preserver, if you need one, I think that may be common Vince, I mean in the next step. I don't expect to be here. Another seventy five years, but a increase of eight inches in a in a century and a quarter bursts an increase of fifty one inches in seventy five years. We may not just be me who needs a life preserver. We may be sending all your kids to school with life preservers or boating them, but you see that would be a good thing. We paddle them to school. We would be contributing less to climate change because we wouldn't be burning fossil fuel. What do you think of that works? I mean that is kind of where we're at. There was a big big conference global conference about climate change in Poland this week in which one thousand promises were made. But no metrics were established to determine whether those promises are followed through on. And and so, you know, everyone it's still a short-term economics and politics and at some point. We're all going to have to rise up and say, wait a minute stop this. While we still can let's do what we can. Whether it's in a more public transit thinking differently about how we structure cities because you know, we people we people are the mere fact that we breathe the lot of people say, oh, well, the carbon dioxide that we breathe out is in the equation of stable of stability. But that's true. Except when you think about two things each person each of us on the on the planet puts about twenty metric tons of c o two into the atmosphere today, we breathe about one hundred and fifty six three point five pounds per day. Each of us. So there were one million people on the entire planet in the year one in twenty twenty eight billion, so not only are we individually breathing more c o two into the atmosphere. But we're building these big cities of concrete and asphalt. And we're cutting down the trees that would otherwise. Turn that carbon dioxide back into oxygen? So we you a knee have to stop thinking about our short-term lives and start thinking about how can we create real urban villages where people can work and go to school and shop at cetera and not have to get in their carts. We get and how do we surround those villages with lots of greenery? How do we change and and diversify the way in which we live so that art quality of life. You know, I love to see a beautiful tree in the morning. How our quality of life is improved as well as minimizing our footprint and trying to we can't stop climate change. But we can slow it. Otherwise, it's going to slow us in you know, one thing that we could do one thing that we could do is one of President Trump's legitimate objections to the so-called. Paris climate agreement was a we promised to give a lot of money too. At two hundred years of grace to China and India who are number two and number three in the amid class. We're still number one. And I think that's wrong. China. Begged borrowed bought and stole plenty of modern technology from us. So no, they don't need two hundred years to catch up. As though we did this terrible thing to them over the last two hundred years. When it rains in California. It's gonna rain today. Right. Well, the first time it rained. We cleared out the atmosphere of the of the particles from the campfire. But you know, why it usually while your car's all black and crazy little drop marks. After a rainstorm that, ladies and gentlemen, that's Chinese coal dust, and you're breathing it in and it's coming across the Pacific Ocean. And it helps to negate California's done tremendous things to remove remove it's to reduce its carbon footprint, and you know, what else? China all that crap coming from China. Contributes to preventing us from getting still further. So I wouldn't impose tariffs on China. I would impose hard. Metrics for reductions in the use of coal fire plants and the reduction in their smog, if they want trade with us in a free and open way, I wouldn't use tariffs. I'd use the more because they won they won't work. Tariff is attacks on you. And me. Because it all gets passed along and climate change is a serious risk to everyone. Probably not too many of you or me or even Vince. But certainly to our children. Whether or not this planet can sustain them. So on that happy note on that happy note. I I really think that what we should do is say, it's not tariff skies..

"One radio network thrilled to have you by the way. Derek maltz is former special agent in charge of the United States Department of Justice Drug Enforcement Administration special operations division. Got an op Ed piece in the daily caller recently. About the skewering the border to solve the opioid crisis. How all of this is all interrelated, and Derek is on the line to chat with us about the Derek. How are you? How are you today? Phil, I'm super so what tell me, I I hear this all the time. What exactly is a special agent in charge? Well, I was lucky to be involved with the DA for twenty eight years. My father was also a DA employee for many years. Especially charge is the person who runs a particular division in the DA we have twenty like twenty two divisions in the United States. And then we have the special operations division, which is a sacred ization center for we had thirty agencies three countries in NYPD all working together to try to put together the pieces of the puzzle of these threats settled looking at destroy our country. Yeah. We're looking at this caravan and people are saying, oh, this is not a threat whatsoever. How would they know that? I mean, we do know from some of the interviews at least from Fox News. And and Judicial Watch they've done they've ferret out. Some folks who were admitting their MS thirteen gang members. There's no telling how many drug runners or who else is in there. So how can they say with confidence in this caravan is not a threat to the United States? They can't they say if because it's political right now about a week before the big term elections. The reality is this. I have a case that we were doing against one of the biggest arms traffic is in the world. A Syrian-born man who lived in Spain that tried to get a hundred passport from our informant eleven years ago to get middle easterners in Central America, Nicaragua area 'cause you wanted to get them into the US. And this guy hated America. And that was eleven years ago. See in America, we will we always respond. We react instead of being proactive on. Things and these guys have been trying to get into the country forever. And it'd be honest with you fill many of them. I think are already here ready to do bad things to our country. Well, that was gonna be my next question. I mean, there's no telling how many sleeper cells are just lying in wait. Well, you know, I don't know if you remember the story in two thousand twelve we had a DA informant in Houston, Texas, who was approached by a very dangerous guy working with the Iranian cuts forces wanted to blow up a building in downtown DC to kill the Saudi Arabian ambassador to the US. And fortunately, it was a DA forum, and and we worked with the FBI and others than we shut it down. But this was the Iranian could sports is getting into our country to do things like this. And you know, we have learned Bob with drug trafficking, but getting back to this crisis. We have a person in America dying every eleven minutes from opioid conventional and the poison's coming from China. It's getting into the hands of our kids, and our communities are suffering, and parents are suffering. And so the public has to realize that at like MS thirteen D'amoto is rate killing control chopping up people with machetes in our country. These are the type of people that want to get in here. Now, let me be. Very clear. Most of the people in these caravans are just trying to have a better life coming to America because they live in very bad conditions in these countries. But you know, what we have a process for that not storming through borders. Throwing rocks bottles Ma cocktails. That's not how you get into to America. And thank God. This president is standing strong and using the best military in the world as reinforcements to keep these people on the control near one of the stance that I've heard, and I'm assuming it's true is a two thirds of the people who come from across the border from Mexico two-thirds come legally, it makes you wonder what's up with the other third of these folks, why don't they come legally exactly because they're criminal rackets and their background and their tattoos as an example. I did these kids they put these fancy tattoos all over their body. And as soon as you see them, you know, MS thirteen this is like what thinks you know? And so we just have to realize that this is not just a. You know, a political thing this is a national security emergency and his life and death on the line. And I'm not being in a law. Mitch I worked this stuff. Twenty eight years, we synchronized all these major operations against the single cartel. The low sectors cartel the lav Amelia cartel all of these cartels that are pushing poison into America we worked on for many years. But here's the one thing that people don't know in Mexico last year, they had twenty nine thousand murders, which is a record year. They take people they put people in acid. They chop off head they use chainsaws, but in Mexico, they have the highest level of disappearing people. So where are these people they're probably in these acid pit stop berry because the Mexican cartels as far as I'm concerned Phil day, she'd be designated a foreign terrorist organization, and that's what I recommend today on Twitter secretary Pompeii oh into president not that I will read it, but they are really solid Americans. Trying to protect us and the State Department criteria the designated an organization as far terrorists. Mexican cartels meet those criteria near. Why don't we designate them a terrorist group? Well, that's a great question. I wish I could ask the president that question today. And I love what he's doing to keep us safe. But the problem is, you know, felt our laws are so damn antiquated. And I thought processes always political and like emerging technology, for example is being crippled right now. Because if it Dan encrypted technology, these apps everyone's using well, how's how's that border patrol and our law enforcement FBI DHS? I how would they supposed to keep America safe? If they don't even have the tools they infiltrate the bad guys communications when they're doing bad things in our country. So when the public want is like, why are we getting all of these new types of drugs into country from China? Well, why don't you ask you congressman? When are they going to update the laws, not just immigration laws, but the the laws against the emerging technology and other laws everything? Advocated and was so slow to react, the bad guys have no budget. They have no bureaucracy. They have no processes, and they don't have any privacy rights groups screaming and yelling that Larson is the evil people. These people that talk about abolishing night. They don't even know what I does every day to keep a state. No, and ISIS, mainly the interior and for the rating these right? These drug drug runners and MS thirteen gang members and throw them out of the country. I mean who would be against Phil, by the way. I mean, I don't know if those shooting audience understands this, but the terrorists are so much relying now on criminal activity funding streams, so like counterfeiting, for example, counterfeit goods in sneak is in clothing HSI. Homeland security investigation is not gonna beg the dock nutcases all met security off ice is not in these guys dead because they're doing unbelievable work, and the public has no idea the kind of work at these law enforcement agencies are doing to keep us safe. But they need the tools. Okay. They can't be like criticized they say like, they're like some legal aliens or something like that part. The problem. No, they're trying to keep us all say. Well, what would it mean? I mean as far as dealing with something like MS, thirteen if we were to designate them, a terrorist organization, how much more effective could we be Ed Iran this scourge from the United States? Well, the way I look at it as okay, they're killing people at an alarming rate now, right? Seventy two thousand people died from drugs last year, by the way, nine eleven the Afghan war and the Iraqi wa- was only thirteen and a half percent of the debt that we saw last year alone from drugs. So look at the money that we spent in the wars. My brother died by the way in Afghanistan. So I know what it is to lose somebody in this war. But he has the point that if you designated these Mexican cartels in these drug cartels human smuggling cartels as far terrorists, then you could apply way more resources. There's other thority. I'm not an expert on every single authority with the other agencies, but there's some legal. Requirements, and what you meet these legal requirements you could use other US authorities to keep us safe. And that's what we need is. We need to be safe. That's it. That simple. And I think that should resonate with the American people. I mean, they're saying that they're being racist. Talking about this caravan not coming. There's nothing racist about saying that folks who are illegally trying to get into the country shouldn't come right? It's such an absurd argument. I mean think about it. First of all, my heart goes out, pity's young kids that are born in these houses, and Salvador and Guatemala, Nicaragua Honduras, and Mexico, these these are beautiful little kids that they don't know any better and their families are putting them at risk by putting them into these caravans and stuff they should file paperwork. Do it legitimately at the embassies and eventually get in here and live a better life because America's the greatest country in the world. I don't blame them for wanting to come here. But this is not a racist issue at all. And it's not the president ringing the bell to get everyone all nervous. And this is real even if only ten percent of these people what bad think about that ten percent of five thousand is what five hundred people. Right. Five hundred people you scatter them in one in each state. And then in the morning, they go out they kick a handgun they start shooting people in a mall or something. It does require a lot of people to do bad things right now. Okay. Look what this maniac you stay down and the synagogue, right? And look at what people can do is the one guy with the bombs all over the place. I mean, these are not political as far as I'm concerned. We can't politicize this stuff. We have to look at the security of our country and the great people here. And that's what the problem is. We keep looking at the politics of it. It's a disaster waiting what would you baiting each other and the bad guys are moving at lightning speed. So that's really dangerous. Well, what happens though, if the Democrats get control of the house? I mean, this kind of southern needs to be legislated, and the president can do a lot of this as far as enforcement, but he's complaining about the laws. Don't allow him to take care of a lot of this. What happens if the Democrats actually take control the house in on November? I would have probably build a bunker and get some water hang out. It's going to be scary fell. Because look again, I'm trying not to play politics. But if you're politicians on that side of saying they should abolish ice. That one statement alone tells me all I deep enough for anyone that went to even second grade in this country to say to abolish ice is so ridiculous it just beyond copy. And then when you're talking about let people in this country, what about the financial burden to our country? What about that diseases that could potentially come in from some of these countries that were not actually, you know, reviewing these people for their, you know, the history their medical history, or whatever this is really dangerous, and I don't understand how anybody whether you're Republican democrat independent doesn't matter. This is really really obvious to anyone with common sense. And I can't believe the average tax payer would buy into this nonsense. No, we'll see I guess if they buy into it..

"Because this is way donald trump has operated for decades when you talk to people who have worked for donald trump ten twenty thirty years ago what they will tell you is that when he didn't like somebody he would just make their lives a misery and keep you know keep just uh you know throwing things in their way insulting nam making life miserable for them until they up and quit and that may be what he's trying to do jeff sessions i came from the other point of view the question you have to ask is why doesn't jeff sessions just quit and i think that you know there's a sense that he carries the president's agenda unlike a lot of people in in the administration he was loyal as you were pointing out and hearing raised with him and is pushing his most important issues not the least of which is immigration right i mean i it's pretty stunning here and by the way one would call this an another format abuse people yes but this social larger issue here about the american legal system which is conflicts of interest are something that are real in the system is designed to try to address those in one way in the united states department of justice the attorney general is a cabinet member but he is also the chief law enforcement officer who cannot investigate a campaign in which he was a principal participant so it's quite obvious that uh that that sessions was right to recuse himself he had to recuse himself that's what all the senators democrats and republicans are saying and what the president is saying is that even in law enforcement where you're supposed to have a measure of objectivity i expect loyalty rather than impartiality and that's a kind of scary does it matter politically how this is right as in narrating hearses being fired right in terms of just the stability of things.

"States now i happen to know as a matter of fact the department of justice has another legal memorandum from my own experience there which states from the perspective of the apartment of justice it can indict a sitting president i think that's wrong by the way but it doesn't matter if i think it's wrong that is the formal institutional position of the united states department of justice republican or democrat so why would they be investigating the present the united states for obstruction of justice were number one it's an impossibility in this case since he has the constitutional power to fire any inferior officer for any reason number two the facts even if he didn't have that power simply do not justify if that's the purpose of the special counsel's investigation among others and if it is the official position of the department of justice cannot indict a sitting president and you know what robert muller start the mr produce he's gonna write a report one day now you read this at national review in three months stick with me he's going to write a report one day which he knows which colmey knows which schumer knows and they're all friends those three they're all tight will be used as the basis for impeachment if they can win the house of representatives mr mollar may be investigating individuals and software but his purpose for being unleashed against the prison the united states is to make the case for impeachment not indictment this is very very important to understand this is why the democrats are so enthusiastic about him in particular and about that position and why they wanted as broad as possible this is the plan this is the plant i don't doubt for a minute and the republicans allowed to happen and the deputy attorney general the united states triggered it and mr colmey who has exposed himself to to you and me as a diabolical figure he is the operator who set the whole thing up because he was furious that the president would dare to fire him the great jim colmey mr mollar is already demonstrated that he's not the sheriff with the white hat riding into town this whole notion of an allpowerful prosecutor going wrong through the statute books who can issue subpoenas poking cover whatever areas he seeks.
