Started back in March with devastating tornadoes that we had the torch through some of our neighborhoods. Continued through the pandemic and the events of this past summer and now this Cowardly bombing on Christmas morning. Right here in the heart of our downtown. Yeah. When they haven't heard about Nashville use in the time I've lived here is that they're tough and they stick together as a team, and that's what we're doing now. And I want you to know that the team is behind me. And the folks that they represent are doing everything we can to. Find out what happened here to get the answers that you deserve. And to make sure that we're all safe. So One of the toughest groups of folks we've got here in middle Tennessee is our law, enforcement of first responders and nowhere in my experience in law enforcement. Has that ever been plainer to me and what happened early yesterday morning? 6 15 6 26 30 years. So on Christmas morning, Metro Nashville police officers just number of blocks north of here didn't run away from danger literally ran to danger. Vehicle that was announcing that it was going to blow up. And Metro Nashville police officers instead of heading in the other direction headed towards that. They evacuated that area got all the citizens out of there. I'm quite confident that their actions are part of the reason why there was less cost of life in this heinous act. Sorry.

And as we speak, they are north of here, a number of blocks that he had a massive crime scene. Doing what they do. Doing frankly what they do better than anyone else in the world, and it's quite a challenge. Having been up there and seeing that scene, it's like a giant jigsaw puzzle created by bomb throws pieces of evidence across multiple city blocks. They've got to gather it. They've got to catalog it. They've got to put it back together and trying to find out what the picture of that puzzle looks like. But there's no one better to do it. Then the folks we've got on the ground here in Nashville, Tennessee, right now. So that's going on as we speak. The investigations of the Leeds was going on as we speak. I am Confident in the team. We have way will get to the bottom of this that we will find out the story of this individual or individuals. We don't know right now. But this this is ultimate Scrooge, who on Christmas morning instead of spreading joy and cheer decided to spread devastation and destruction. But We know how that story ends your Nashville. We're gonna stand together. We're gonna get back on her feet. We're gonna get our business is back up and running. We're gonna get our infrastructure and the cell coverage back up and running because that's what we do in Nashville. Thank you for your time. I
Google's antitrust troubles
"After years, of scrutiny into big. Tech. Something is finally happening. Last year the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission open antitrust investigations of Google facebook Amazon and Apple. And now, a lawsuit against Google is likely to be the first real action taken against big tech. Joining me explain shrink Ghaffari a senior reporter here at recode. Hey, Seraing. Hey. So the Department of Justice is planning to file a lawsuit against Google any day. Now, what exactly are they claiming? Google has done? So we don't know the details of the lawsuit until it's filed, but we that generally, they're expected to accused Google of trying to disadvantage its competitors like Microsoft's Bing which another search engine by not sharing data with them and the data that other companies need to thrive. We also know that they're looking into their search advertising. So Google controls, a sale of both that toolset people used by ads as well as the actual space under the searches. So that could be accomplished conflict of interests at the Justice Department accused glove. So what exactly is at stake here? Google obviously, they're gonNA throw every lawyer and lobbyist and smart person they have their at this lawsuit but one of the stakes for one of the world's biggest companies. I. Mean the stakes are huge. This is probably the biggest existential threat to Google business right now because the most extremity would be to try to break up Google business and separate business from its other businesses the you can accomplish that that's right but. In reality, these kinds of cases are going to take years to resolve, and that's the kind of Microsoft. But just the fact that Microsoft was under the Lens of an antitrust lawsuit prevented it from being able to really dominate the Internet the way that that was trying to. Write. This is the antitrust lawsuit brought by government against Microsoft in the ninety s when Bill Gates was running the company and write a lot of people think that ultimately it it led to at least a momentary fall in Microsoft stature Christopher. There are spending so much time fighting the feds that's right and yeah, we saw Microsoft back author trying to bundle their hardware with their software in terms of browsers as aggressively. So, serene care about big fancy lawsuits or big tech companies scrambling behind the scenes and you just care about Google the product you use every day. What could this lawsuit mean for them? It's too soon to say for sure but ultimately could impact what you see when you type in something on Google right? Because if Google has to be fair to other competitors, they may have to make sure that when you search in, let's say a restaurant name that you're not seeing Google's reviews for that. Restaurant over yelp earn other company. We don't know this is going to end up going not far but that's just one example of how Google's competitors have said that if antitrust action were taken at a severe level that this could help consumers potentially because they would see not just the suspect Google wants to promote in terms of its own businesses when you search things but other players to, and we take a step back from Google specifically, we're expecting this lawsuit right to be at the front. Edge of a wave of new scrutiny on big tech companies that isn't just you know people yapping tweeting or complaining I mean, this could be the first of several lawsuits, right? That's right. A bunch of states may join onto this lawsuit They can also file independent ones so and you know several states have signaled to do that So this is just the beginning of Google's headache. They're also facing potential congressional action at a Democrat led House Committee is going to is is. Expected to publish a report about Google and the other big tech companies and their antique potentially anticompetitive practices this coming week as well. So just the beginning of people's problems on this front, right this feels to me like the beginning of a new era were. It's not just complaints and talk, but now we actually have real punitive action if the department justice wins this lawsuit could Google look like in a couple of years tell me about what the worst case scenario for Google is. I mean I will. I. Will Nuances with like. We are seeing the beginning of the beginning of action, but it is a very politicized action under the current DOJ and a lot of people think that the Jake is rushing this one out because they bill bar attorney general wants to get this out before the

"You broke the news that the user but Chris Murphy and other democratic senators met with Zarif the foreign minister of Iran yes and that was my story that we published the federalist on Monday and I tried to get comments from European the other people and should be in there and they declined to comment but one secretary of state my coupon Hey addressed the meeting which had been not approved by the state department then finally Murphy admitted that he had taken part in a secret meeting in the hotel room of the three and that he's done it actually before too and mostly what I find interesting about this is that Murphy isn't as extreme critic of legitimate our conversations with people who are leaders of other countries so for instance when my claim the incoming national security adviser had a conversation intending to de escalate the situation with Russia with the ambassador from Russia Hey kids we act of mercy thought that it was treasonous says with a legal that it definitely needs to be investigated that it was a Logan act violation this is the view also shared by The Washington Post you might remember David Ignatius received that leak about the kids react on call and put out an article about how it is legitimate to think this was the Logan act violation the department justice pursued Logan act violations that happened with the pretext they used to go interview Flynn you know and when was the incoming national security adviser to doing exactly what you should have been and in fact she's been doing with more people were as Murphy is a strong opponent of our current policy toward Iran he has some questionable ties to redeem undead or supported groups and he was publicly opposing our policy the same day that he had this meeting and yet he wants to say that what he did was perfectly fine I'm I'm sure I'm speechless because it's so obviously inconsistent hi is anybody coaling Murphy out on this and were there other senators present the others who were reported to be there any information kinda came because other European countries knew about this meeting even though the United States did not in the state let's not talk about it but some of them are other you know senators were there like men that van Hollen is reported to be trying to get into the meeting on the th and clear if he actually make it into the meeting or not but also reported to be John Kerry who has previously had such woke interactions with Iranian regime leaders and Murphy's defense of what he did with that he sits on the foreign affairs committee he's a senator Hughes and a co equal branch of government he has the right to do this well that wouldn't explain John Kerry being there and so while he was somewhat transparent or claim to be transparent about what they talked about he hasn't been transparent about who else is participating and so we definitely need to know more about well established events that it's a co equal branch of government does that negate the login law violation well first off you know there's a difference in being co equal branch of government and doing your own foreign policy don't lie in the states so I'm asking is is settled is it a an illegitimate defense then well I don't personally believe the Logan act is constitutional that new point was not shared by Obama department of justice or Sally eight Sir James yeah but for general Flynn a great great American all right ruined by on the basis of this right and so if you're going to enforce the login after use it as a pretext to investigate and destroy someone's life and bankrupt them and threatened with prison I don't see why it's okay to do it to Mike Flynn who actually got a legitimate function in right talking with his Russian counterpart but not to use against Murphy who's actually got some pretty problematic attachments with the Iranian regime and sent me water his problematic attachments he'd like to speak it the group then Nyack the national Iranian American council which is forty funded by Iranian regime leaders and started by so we can sell and it was very supportive of the Iranian regime and he was very upset you might remember when senator Tom cotton wrote a public open letter nothing secretive about it at all to the leaders of the other lines encouraging them not to do the G.

What U.S. Religious Liberty Means — Especially When It Comes To Islam
"The trump administration is made religious liberty a central theme of this presidency for example the US department of health and Human Services now has a conscience and religious freedom division the president has champion judges who have ruled in favor of people seeking religious exemptions to laws and just last month the White House strengthen protections for kids who want to pray at school as mood and is part of my dean is part of the inclusive America project at the Aspen Institute she is also the author of a book on religious liberty called when Islam is not a religion she told me that president trump's focus marks a change from previous administrations there has been just a more pronounced public affirmation of the positive role of religion in American society the need to protect it often we hear from various government officials whether be Mike Pompeii or president trump or US Attorney General bill Barr or even just sessions when he announced religious liberty task force of the department justice is constant refrain about religion is under threat by secularization threatening forces but on on the left to the protection of religion and the protection of our religious freedom that has become a constant refrain what communities have benefited from the administration's attention to the issue or their religious communities that have essentially been left out yeah so we can then candidate Ted Cruz said that it was he called it the religious liberty of election and he said that it was ultimately about like the person who would be able to defend religious liberty the vast and president trump and Ben Carson I'm ricksantorum all got on the bandwagon said absolutely this is about religious liberty and we're going to protect religious liberty for elected president but at the same time as they were making the statement there also competing with each other to determine who could be the most discriminatory against Muslims whether it be present from suggestions about creating a Muslim registry or about banning Muslims from U. S. which as we know when he has before with that as well or be Ted Cruz's suggestion that we surveil Muslim neighborhoods in the aftermath he brought that up in the aftermath of a terrorist incident or ricksantorum saying that Islam absolutely was different from Christianity fee so that is not ours protected under the first amendment as Christianity is and so there was like this obvious hypocrisy so what you saw was a creation of a hierarchy of faith even within this world of law to me yes I even beyond just the creation of a hierarchy I actually saw denial of a song even being a religion that had access through religious freedom another suggestion that present from brought up during the campaign was to close down mosques when you create such as Turk disparity between types of things that you're willing to protect for quote unquote religion and then say that the most basic of religious freedom rights are not afforded to a particular group of people you know how exactly are you explaining that what's the logic there and it didn't take much to figure out what that is because unfortunately increasingly common talking point among many people in the White House and in that sort of larger network is that Islam is not a religion it is a dangerous political ideology and therefore Muslims don't have religious freedom rights can you think of a policy directive from the trump administration that on paper looks good for religious liberties but in reality has really only been and that positive for evangelical Christians more or less just one group well I think that even in the space of Christianity increasingly you hear this I'll cry from our progressive Christians that they feel that the way that Christianity is being defined and champion tends to only happen from this particular angle and of course a constant concern in the context of specifically the sexuality related culture wars is that the rights of LGBT individuals including all your between the visuals of faith or people who hold different positions on abortion contraception from real religious standpoint are being undermined and to that end I think that is has to come from an understanding that religious liberty is not in some way just to safeguard for traditional religious beliefs it is a secret just for beliefs of a wide diversity anywhere they fall on the political spectrum and again the diverse religious spectrum and so what I hope for and I do see some movement on this for more progressive religious liberty groups to bring to the fore more progressive religious claims and say look religious liberty is for this too my concern is that if the rhetoric in the op in the enforcement of some of these policies continues to be only it's thought through in the frame of traditional religious beliefs then there will be other types of religious claims I won't be as protected I don't really have a concrete examples are not being protected but I do see this increasing sort of urgency from our progressive groups to be like what we have these claims to and because religious liberty protects the range and doesn't privilege one particular interpretation or another that are religious claims are also protected husband Jean thank you so much for speaking with us thank you as a dean is part of the inclusive America project at the aspen institute and the author of the book when Islam is not a
Top Democrat threatens legal action if intelligence chief doesn’t share whistleblower complaint
"President trump tonight today that he said anything inappropriate to a foreign leader trump is defending himself because of a whistle blower complaint within the spy community that allegedly accuses him of doing just that a new Washington post reports cites anonymous sources saying the complaint involves Ukraine Congress has been trying to find out first hand what was said but they're not getting anywhere with the administration when the inspector general of the intelligence community Michael Atkinson testified before the house the agency watchdog refused to share that's frustrated California Democrat Adam Schiff he's the chair of the house intelligence committee I spoke with him earlier today and I began by asking him why the justice department is saying that he can't see the substance of this whistleblower complaint will be clear our frustration is not with the inspector general inspector general's actually done exactly what we would hope inspector general will do and that is review the complaint to an investigation determined to crack the if it's credible and he did and found it was and he also found it was urgent and then he refers it to the director of national intelligence who has a week to review it before they shall transmit to Congress when the director did not do so and didn't even inform us that he withheld the complaint inspector general came to our committee and said the process has broken down but the director of national intelligence Joseph acquire as you said it is part of his job to determine whether a complaint is legitimate right before he decides whether or not Congress even needs to know about it and he says the complaint wasn't serious enough to tell Congress about so why not respect that decision well that's not really the decision that he made the director has a week to review the complaint and then the statute says he shall provided to Congress along with any comments you want to add to the director can say I don't agree with the complaint or I don't think it's credible I disagree with the inspector general but there's no authority to withhold it from Congress the whole point of whistleblower statute was to give a whistleblower who sees misconduct an Avenue to bring that to. attention of Congress so there's no discretion here for the director and it's important to point out too that the director isn't saying this isn't serious he isn't saying this isn't urgent he's just saying that this is outside of the jurisdiction of my office and therefore I'm not required to transmit the complaint an inspector general disagrees with that vehemently he says it is clearly within the most important responsibilities of the director of national intelligence it's also clear that the director of national intelligence is operating under guidance that's been given to him by a bill Barr's justice department and they're not eager for Congress to get this information but I want to jump in on that because I can't there has been some historic question about the the division there between the executive branch and Congress it's been said from various news reports that the complaint has something to do with the phone call between president trump in a foreign leader isn't it the president's privilege to say whatever he wants to another foreign leader. no it isn't it's not prevalent the presence privilege for example to engage in criminality if the president were making a criminal bargain with a foreign leader he would be no more protected than your I and in fact the claim of privilege doesn't cover criminal or fraudulent activity and hear the whistle blower complaint according inspector general contains credible evidence of wrongdoing and so wrongdoing but you don't know if it's criminal we're still trying to figure out the substance we are trying to to determine what the substance is but we know this the inspector general found that it was an urgent matter that needed congress' attention and that met all the requirements of the statute and if any party whether it's the department justice or the White House or someone indeed who may be the subject of the complaint is able to deprive that deprive Congress of that information simply because they choose to then the whistleblower statute doesn't work at all I'm chills people from coming forward about that because you said earlier that you had some concerns about national security here and also about a protections for the whistleblower themselves are you worried that something could happen to them some action could be taken against them I am worried about it because the import of what the department justice is said here and this is why this is so destructive is that we don't think that this complaint qualifies for protection which means that the complainant doesn't qualify for protection so that seems to open up the door for any agency to retaliate against any whistleblower if someone in the administration decides they don't want to qualify for protection and that would of course undermine the whole thing which would mean that people vertically in the intelligence community who are dealing with classified information and and have no other way to report wrongdoing we have to conclude this process just doesn't work and some of them may go outside of the law to provide classified information to the press or use other means which is not what we want to and. courage we wanna courage the lawful provision of evidence of wrongdoing to the Congress so that we can take action one more thing we already know president trump speaks freely about security issues ready told North Korea how the US was watching their rocket engine tests he told the Russians about Israeli spying on ISIS he tweeted a photo from highly classified spy satellite what difference does it make at this point what can you actually do about it. well we can enforce the law and we're looking at the remedies that we have right now I think if there's a trial what ace well I I think there there are several but I think there's any case to get expedited court review in the form of a tear roll or preliminary injunction or men damos it's here where the inspector general said this is an urgent matter and were clearly affects national security but we can also look at frankly depriving the office of the director of national intelligence of funding when they come to us for reprogramming requests or other reasons until they comply with the law so we have financial leverage but the the fact the matter is that. I have the debate is taking and this is urgent and we need to get answers that chairman Adam Schiff of the house intelligence committee thank you for speaking with us

I. groups are coming and they're cutting hidden cameras and microphones and and they may be doing that but a lot of it is they want you to know that your house has been entered because when you call the police and you say well somebody got in but I don't see any signs of breaking and entering and they took all my shoes and they put him on the island in my kitchen and they painted this wall read it used to be one well the police the first thing they ask the victim is was anything stolen now they didn't steal it well you sure union lawyer shoes in there and you don't remember it for you you sure that this wall wasn't always read them I mean it it's it's meant to draw you a psychiatric diagnosis and also meant to alienate you called police help because after you call the police report times with these type of components on the computer at the police department they'll put a little last respects your name that you're one of those crazy people that think their microwave is attacking or things that somebody's breaking in but there's never been evidence of a break in you have to remember the people that are hired to do this are often former CIA informer at the I yeah they have the devices to open your garage they have the know how to pick your locks and breaking your door without kicking the door at and once you're under monitoring they also know the code your alarm so when they come in there they're going to you on set your your alarm if you have one and they're going to reset it back before you go I even had one victim dead when I help them we called one of the alarm companies it will monitor their alarm and they couldn't figure out why if the alarm was going off why nobody showing up well all the numbers that the alarm company had been changed by one so when the alarm would go off their cell phone number was off by one digit the police number was off by one digit the fire number one off by one digit so even if they tripped the alarm the alarm was going to call anybody that was going to help that person what about fishing schemes for harassment because I know that you know most people don't think twice about if somebody calls up they sound like they're authoritative and they say something like we need information about this could you give us your phone number could you give us this he would just for verification I would say no if you called me you know my phone number if you could if you called me you know this information I'm not going to give it to you because what they do is they record the conversations and they find ways to use your voice in order to order things you didn't order or the use your voice in order to sign you up for things that you didn't sign up for and so then you find yourself in a situation where you're wondering why you're getting all this stuff for you getting all this junk mail you're wondering why you're getting all these harassing phone calls it's because somebody used to you in and they and they use of forty to get your information from you and once they have the the information they can do whatever they want to you yeah I left the stadium and the often times the elderly really fall for badly it in the bad thing with today's society is it's they've made it almost impossible not to pay some of your bills online and and not to have to order some things online and I have that held out against that for years and finally had to break down and you know and get that one special credit card that you keep a two hundred dollar limit on it strictly to order stuff online so that way when you use a number you don't get your entire account cleaned out if you use a debit card or something I mean the assault on our privacy is it is to a point where there is there's almost no way to defeat it you know and we're we're fighting a tragical government now that I said all along again even ten years ago after my first book came out people civil what's the ultimate goal with this why would they want to do this to people well the ultimate goal is to control the entire population you know as you can see from where we're at now you know we whether you hate Trumper love problem you're Democrat or Republican it doesn't matter but when you sing it the president get elected it's not a status quo politician and may actually turn the entire intelligence apparatus of the American government out against that president to try to figure out a way to get in and peach which also I think is one of the reasons that they have the attack on the Cuban embassy they're trying to blame that on the Russians I don't think if the Russians the Russians know how many nails or work more built into that building right and they have and they have a low tech you know technology in there to to scan that they needed me to attack exactly you know what we're at a point where we need to take control of our government most certainly we need to be able to expose the fact of these weapons exist and they can be turned on people in a given.

"Don't spit. Desma spits toward Newland and both corporal Newland and another officer Joshua Titus, grab LA desma push him backwards onto the floor while he's still seated. His head strikes the floor and both officers jump on top of him and punch him in the face repeatedly. When did this happen? This happened on January twelfth of this year. And how did this incident come to your attention, and how did the video come to your attention? The south bend Tribune was investigating disciplinary matters in the police department in partnership with propublica. There are not many disciplinary cases that have been brought forward to the city's civilian oversight board. But this was one of them. We noticed it from looking at minutes of the meetings of the civilian oversight board that in June the police chief Ed wind Bigler had brought forward written reprimands for two officers for a violation of the department's policy for use of necessary force. Also, this is a case where the police department did see. An abuse. And did discipline the officers. But then the question arises whether reprimands were enough for actually beating a suspect in handcuffs at the time. That's correct. There are also questions about how accurately the police chief described what had happened when he went before the civilian oversight board. What do you mean? Didn't he say that the police punched a suspect? No, he didn't the police chief described what had happened as these two officers having gone a little overboard. So you have this incident where there was a euphemism that essentially became an alleged cover-up of a beating and let's bring in Ken Armstrong of propublica. How does this fit in with the broader record of the Elkhart Indiana police department when you began looking into that? What we discovered is that under the current police chief disciplinary actions have plummeted in the ten years before the current police chief took office the prior police chiefs brought an average of twenty disciplinary actions a year to the civilian oversight board in the first year under the current police chief the number of disciplinary actions brought to the board was zero is it remotely possible that the number of disciplinary cases went down drastically. Because the police department behave better, I think that video would argue otherwise this video shows a man who ultimately had to be carried away on a stretcher. Are there many cases that you found where someone was seriously hurt? This is certainly the only case that we've seen under the current chief where officers were disciplined over an allegation of excessive force. We don't know if there are more the mayor Ville card actually reached out to the Indiana state police task them to investigate his police department, the state police declined and said that that would be more properly it for the US department Justice, and Steve as we started looking at the department's history we discovered that there were a disproportionate number of fatal shootings by police officers in Elkhart there were six people shot and killed by police officers in five year period, if you compare that to New York City, the numbers are pretty extraordinary in those same five years New York City had seven times the shootings with one hundred sixty times the people so if I'm living in Elkhart, Indiana, statistically, speaking, I'm way, more likely to be shot by. A police officer than a New York. The numbers would say so yes. So the person who is willing to look into this at the moment is the mayor of Elkhart in this video that you published one of the four officers who's in the room is identified as the mayor's son. He's not one of the people who throws a punch, but he's there. How would you say the mayor has done under the pressure of your reporting in the story? Well, the mayor now said that he has suspended the police chief for thirty days without pay the two officers who actually through the punches are currently on administrative leave with pay pending the ongoing criminal case that has been filed against them. But the two other officers who were in the same room when the beating took place, including the mayor's son who is a sergeant on the police force to our knowledge have not been disciplined, you have described concerns about police abuse and the futility of finding anyone to investigate them. Theoretically, the police should investigate themselves. It's alleged that didn't happen. Here didn't happen seriously. But you say there was also this outside civilian review board, which is really normal is that outside review board completely powerless to investigate on its own. And is that normal across the country. It seems that the amount of questioning and investigating that these boards. Do is determined by what they would like to do in. What also we've found is that nationally it appears that the trend was civilian oversight is greater independence from the police department Elkhart in the last couple of years has gone the opposite direction. We've been listening to Christian shack. Lure of the south bend Tribune.

But we're going to be there. We're going to try and help. Wait, wait. As the president. That was from a couple of hours ago. He was down in Florida. There was the international association, the Chiesa police, I think as the. Organization. He was speaking to really it's a it's a great organization. And it's and I I was watching most of the speech, and it was good. I mean, he he actually made. He made some salient points. He said some positive things I agree with a lot of the things that he stands for in terms of law enforcement. But, but then he said, you know, we're gonna we're gonna go there and fix Chicago. And I'm like, this is an interesting announcement because Chicago now he's coming into fiction cargo, and he says the easily could straighten it out can fix it. Take care of it just like he had set a couple of years ago. He said he knew how to fix it. Because he said this stop and frisk works. The crime spree is a terrible blight on that city, and we'll do everything possible to get it done. I know the law enforcement people in Chicago. And I know how good they are. They could solve the problem if they were simply allowed to do their job and do their job properly. And that's what they wanna do. So Chicago we're going to start working with you as of today. Okay. So and we now know that he's talking about. Federal law enforcement from the US department Justice. He was turned his office is what their time which is people have been telling you about now for a couple of months here. I think they actually did add. A a. A few prosecutors to the roster here to start charging up some of the people that are being grabbed up on federal gun charges and other federal crimes federal drug trafficking charges things like that to get them and put a little bit more of muscle federal muscle behind prosecution here. One of the things that people will tell you law enforcement is that street level criminals don't necessarily want to go into the federal system because he can get shipped around the country, and they don't they're going down to joliette prisoners buddies down somewhere that you know, where they know the people there their family can come visit them, this is a this is a much more difficult circumstance. So that is that's kind of where this thing might be of value. So we'll find out. I mean, I. I know there's people talk about the national guard. They talk about all kinds of other solutions here, interestingly enough numbers are down this year in terms of believe it or not I know, but they are they're down in terms of murdering they're down in terms of violent crime shootings are down slightly. But it's still a shockingly high number. Yeah. Still end up still happening in the same places. That's why you know, look, whatever the president has in mind that could help is is welcome. But those those proclamations it's gonna get done and it's gonna get done fast. And it's easy to straighten out. It's not if it were people would've straight it out, right? But he did say that. So it must be true. And he's and he is winning as he told the crowd today, and he's he's almost bored of it almost almost not quite yet. Not quite yet. All right. Michael steele.
