Trump-appointed federal judge in Texas blocks Biden’s deportation ‘pause’

"Federal judge in Texas has blocked President Biden's 100 Day moratorium on deportations of unauthorized immigrants.

But the argument carried the day with Corpus Christi Federal Judge Drew Tipton, a Trump appointee. He wrote that the release of Deported ble immigrants in Texas quote Establishes a substantial risk of imminent and irreparable harm. He slapped a temporary restraining order on the Biden administration and said Texas has 14 days to come back and make its case for a preliminary injunction. No comment from U.

Am I Radical Enough?

"I think the one thing we can all agree on is that no one is happy right now with the way things are. But there's this agreement over how much change we can ask for right now. Like can I start to advocate for free college legalized pot? When like gay marriage might be repealed? I just worry that this push pull leaves me somewhere in the middle and settling for less. Limiting own dreams, what the future can be because I'm afraid about the president. I, just feel like a not radical enough. A recent example. So right now, people are rising up to protest against police violence and the phrase abolish the police or defunding police is really becoming an idea that is is much more mainstream sophia. No is an author and cartoonist who's been involved in a lot of radical activists, organizers circles. And so she posted something on instagram about defunding the police, and then I saw somebody else post something on instagram. That was like you have to say abolish the police. You can't say defined the police because if you say defunding police people don't know that what you mean is that it's a step towards abolition sophie. was what I posted not enough should I have said abolish instead then a friend of mine who's an older activists was like actually I think the word de fund is really important because it's it does represent a step and it represents an an action that people can understand as a step towards abolition, and so there's this back and forth about what is the right wording to use? It was kind of interesting for Sophie, that she was dealing with this dilemma because she just wrote a whole graphic novel about this. About how to try to be a good person in a bad world? The book is called the contradictions. One of the reasons I ended up deciding to like do the book is because I was sort of talking to friends of mine in the like anarchist scene we were talking about like when we first got introduced to like lefty ideas and. How those ideas came through people and how those people. Had An influence on how we thought about the ideas and like ideas can be perfect. But humans are fallible right? The comic is auto fiction. So the main characters named Sophie and it's based on Sophie's life, but it's not actually sophie. The book starts in Paris with Sophie having just arrived to study abroad. Here. I was age twenty. Character feels out of place and pretty quickly meets somebody who maybe alliance more with her background. So she's getting Abban. Sees. Somebody riding by on a fixed gear bike Fix Gear and makes the association that okay. After writing affixed here. Then maybe they're punk and if the navy there punk and maybe they're queer in like Ben. Maybe. I have a friend here. Fake. I saw you orientation. This person on the bike turns out to be another American in Sophie Study Abroad Program and they strike up a friendship. This person Zeena does not as clear as Sophie Hope, but she is opponent. Zina's Vegan. She is very active in like animal rights stuff and very vocal about it guy just broke up with worked at the COP with man we to sit outside and yell things like milk. It's full of US I used to be vegetarian but I'm Nima so I stopped. You could take iron pills or eat spinach character. Sophie explains that she's Tangentially associated with some anarchist or lefty friends back home and you know she's dipping her toes in into that world but hasn't really participated much and then Zena. You know she talks about having a planner full of activists activities and then she also gives Soviet. About these two anarchists hitchhiking around Western Europe. Everyone's making plans for spring break. What if we went hitchhiking? Taking a plane, the gas emissions are out of control and also going hitchhiking is more. Living the ideals I think I'll go vegan for the trip like in solidarity you don't have to do that. But I want to. XENA and Sophie hit the road trying to thumb their way from Paris to Amsterdam. Freeway insurance how? Actually exhausting and it takes ever. So that when they get to Amsterdam Sophie, kind of pulls out the map and it's like, oh, we could go to the end Frank House. I don't know. Like the Van Gogh Museum. Na. Dena just does not seem interested museums only showed the narrative of the victor and they are hierarchical thing that must be abolished or whatever. There's a comic shop. I'd like to see maybe we can walk there. Sure Well, they end up wandering around a fair bit. It's sort of the. The deflation of like we we did the thing and we're here and. Now. We're just here.

The Takeaway

Biden says he's "not a fan" of Supreme Court packing

"Back to the takeaway. I'm tan Xena Vega and I'm speaking with slates Marc Joseph Stern about Amy Cockney. Barrett's confirmation hearings. Barrett's confirmation could tip the ideological balance of the Supreme Court into a firm, conservative majority. And now many Democrats are openly discussing changing the makeup of the court itself. Mark. I want to talk a little bit about this idea that's come up a couple times that to be fair, the Democrats, including Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Have really deflected on answering the question about court packing. So can you explain what that is? Yes. So the Constitution does not actually set the number of seats on the Supreme Court. It's been nine for about 150 years, but it has been I throughout all of history as few as six and as many as 10 seats. So actually, Congress is the one that gets to decide how many seats there are on the Supreme Court. And if Congress wants to add seeds, then it's allowed Teo that pretty much everybody agrees. Those are the rules. So court packing simply means Congress passing a bill signed by the president. That odd seats to the Supreme Court and in this instance is we're talking about it today, it would be an effort to dilute the influence of conservative justices. Like Amy Cockney Barrett if she's confirmed by adding liberal justices who will be able to out vote her now let's be clear. I mean, the Republicans have honed in on the Supreme Court. Ah for decades now, as they're really strategy in terms of remaking on having more conservatives on the court, and they've been very successful in that President Trump has done that in lower courts in particular. So the fight for the seats in the Supreme Court has been Ah, difficult one, particularly after the nomination of Merrick, Garland and and the GOP sort of stepping in to prevent that nomination from moving forward, And I give that background because it feels like there is a lot of criticism that the Democrats may want to pack the courts if you will, But don't they have no other choice? I mean, hasn't gotten to the point where politically, this is just a really nasty fight. Yes, that's what a lot of Democrats are. Concluding. These is for a long time court Packing was kind of a third rail of politics. FDR infamously tried and failed to do it in the thirties. But I think the Democratic Party's looking out of a little differently these days because the choices here are not very good for them. I mean, they can, either. Try to expand the courts, you know, try to get their caucus together. If they win big in November and add seats, or they can suffer for decades under an extremely conservative court, and and let's be clear if Amy Cockney Barrett is confirmed the Supreme Court will be way more conservative than it has been for decades. Probably not since the early 19 thirties. This would be A really radical change in the makeup of the court, and that's in the makeup of really America and the laws that are allowed to exist here on DH. So I think that a lot of Democrats are saying, Look, if our only other option is having the boots of the Supreme Court stomping on our face for decades, we've got to take core expansion seriously because it's the only thing that will allow our democracy to survive. And, you know, we're hearing from Joe Biden specifically has said, and I'm quoting here. That I've already spoken on. I'm not a fan of court packing, but I don't want to get off on that whole issue. I want to keep focused. Why is Joe Biden sort of toeing the line here when it comes to the court? I mean, given everything that we just talked about? Well, Biden says he wants to focus on the fight at hand. And I believe him. I think he really doesn't want to distract from this Barrett confirmation battle by by changing the entire conversation about you know what he thinks of court packing, right? The goal for Democrats right now is to throw everything into the fight against Barrett, right, Leave it all on the fields. Leave all the blood and teeth on the floor is Elizabeth Warren used to say and really make it clear that they staunchly opposed this nominee that they view the whole thing is illegitimate. But that's probably going to fail. Republicans hold the Senate Republicans seemed to have the votes. And so what I think Democrats want to do is really work up a lot of productive anger and rage among the Democratic base. And then if Barrett is confirmed, have the conversation about court expansion later after the election when it's less of a political hot potato when Democrats know whether they've won or knocked, so I think Mine's obviously being evasive and elusive here, but he's doing it for a pretty smart strategic reasons. He wants everybody to be focusing on Barrett. Not the hypothetical possibility of Democrats retaliation If Barrett is confirmed

White House signals support for $600 jobless benefit

"Trump to his credit, and you won't get the credit. But to his credit, Trump and some of the Republican allies in the Senate signal that they want to extend temporarily. These $600 per week expanded jobless benefit in order to fill the gap between now but nobody listened. Nobody listen, They just sort of left. Democrats have so far rejected an extension to anything. And they say the next relief bill needs to move as a complete package. Do you think they'll get punished? By the way? Do you think they'll get vilified in the media? For not wanting to do any work. They passed there. What the hell did they call it? They're heroes package. Which was nothing. But ah loaded down situation with money for special interests and attempt to buy votes for the Democrats in 2020. That's all it was. It was an attempt to purchase the 2020 election with your money. By the way, That's what that was all about. Now. Republicans argue the provisions passed in March at the peak of the crisis has discouraged people from returning to work. As when Ah added to their local inflamed benefit. Some workers are taking in Mohr than they had been paid to work. There are actually people benefiting There are people doing better right now. Not working. So where is the incentive? I mean, people want to go backto work? Sure. Percentage of people do. Some people like sitting around and watching TV. Even though there's nothing on TV, my God! I have seen every friends episode Every single friends episode at least three times since this started because we got into a bad time where there's nothing out there. I mean, show something else. I got really excited. A few weeks ago, they started showing psych marathons on TV. I loved psych for a while, they were showing Xena Warrior Princess Marathon. I like that. Watch those with sound out that kind of stuff. So I like that, but for by and large on a daily basis, I think it's on TBS. The on ly thing. Toe watch that's worth watching that has any entertainment value on TV. That's on TV. That's not streaming or anything like that is friends and I have seen every episode because my daughter is obsessed. And the words, guys. You guys are so lucky. You get to watch this when it was on my God felt lucky. Um, like watching Jennifer Aniston. I'm not gonna lie anyway. Democrats note that many people don't have jobs to return Tio with unemployment hovering around 11% in June, well because the country is not opening back up. So I mean, it's not, you know, one doesn't necessarily equate to the other President Trump was willing to extend the $600 bonus for another week as a bridge, while horse trading between the two sides continued. But the Senate adjourned as he addressed reporters at the White House on Thursday evening. That was a flaw. All right, not everything. I don't care what anybody says. Not everything Republicans do is perfect. Not everything Democrats do is bad. That was a mistake. McConnell sent people home. People are going to remember that That was screwed up, and that was a mistake. There is no reason to go home. There's no reason to adjourn. Certainly not on Thursday. Well, everybody else has to work works Friday. You know has to work on Friday. They should've stayed. They should have hammered it out. That is 100% What they should have done. I don't care what anybody says. That was a mistake, and that's going to cost us in November's just the reality, Trump said. We want a temporary extension of expanded unemployment benefits. This will provide a critical bridge for Americans who have lost their jobs to the pandemic through no fault of their own. This's not anybody's fault, he said, calling on Democrats toe work with him on measures which would stop Americans from being evicted from their homes and to pass another round of direct checks, which which both sides support. You just need to agree on a on a number. Now, of course, Democrats have been married to what they call the heroes. They passed their $3 trillion heroes package. How much time do you think I've actually spent? On the actual bills for this kind of stuff. And how much time do you think has spent on the acronym Do you think they have a subcommittee that comes up with the acronyms? You think there's a group that sits around and then comes up with the thing and with the actual bill and all the money And how long after that, do you think? Do we have to wait until the sub committee comes up with the acronyms? Did you know they got they got they got to test it. It's got to be heroes. It's going to be something positive. Obama and, um, did so. Democrats passed in the House passed a three tailed trillion dollar package last month, which would extend the $600 per week federal boost to January 2021 while also allocated $175 billion for rent mortgage aid again. I don't think I need to be $600. I think that we need the rent mortgage aid, but the bit what's one thing you never hear about? Is the bill was loaded down with money for special interests in an attempt to buy votes for the Democrats in 2020. As a result, it had no chance in the Republican controlled Senate Conservatives have refused to pass a measure. Peter Ki, even eager to keep the fourth aid package to around $1 trillion. On Monday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell unveiled his own heels act. They didn't focus group that one. Heels. I know what they're trying to do, but it sounds like they're a bunch of heels. They needed to do better without one with reduced federal unemployment insurance, But the Democrats won't budge, McConnell said. Day drill redline and sand liability protection. In the next Corona legislation. Otherwise, we're going to get the courts are getting it loaded down. But under liability protection. The courts are getting it loaded down because people are going to view this was an opportunity, too. So we talked about it earlier in the show. People are going to file lawsuits all over the place because somebody some restaurant somewhere didn't require people to cover their mouth when they got something like that. I got sick when I got not shows at this place, and therefore that companies that businesses you know, insurance has to pay me $600,000 because I got covert and I was afraid and the mental anguish with diet. That kind of stuff is gonna happen, so we need liability protection. We don't need $600 every week on top of what the states are giving us. And more than anything else. Everybody on every side. Every side of the aisle needs to come together and talk and negotiate and not just hold their breath and stomp their feet and it was a big mistake to send the Senate home. Huge mistake to send the Senate home because they still have work to do.

"I'm Chan Xena Vega and this is the take away. The country is focused on the corona virus pandemic and the fight for racial justice. The federal government continues to make sweeping changes to environmental law. On Wednesday, President Trump announced he's rolling back one of the country's key environmental protection laws. For 50 years, the National Environmental Policy Act, or Nipah, has ensured that federal infrastructure projects require something called an environmental impact study. Now changes to the law will force those studies to be conducted in less time or in some cases, not at all. Experts say these changes will lead to new infrastructure that could hurt the environment. At the same time, the presumptive Democratic nominee for President Joe Biden, announced his climate change plan this week, which proposes to spend $2 trillion over four years on sustainable infrastructure and other green projects. How far that spending will actually go to curb climate change remains unclear. Kendra Pierre Louis is with me. She is a reporter for Gimlet Media. Kendra. Thanks for being with us. Thank you so much for having me Tim Xena. So what's Nipah? I mean and And what exactly are these environmental impact studies? Right? So, basically what? You have to think it's before the creation of Nipah. A federal agency generally considered efficiency. So if we're building a highway, what is the fastest way of getting this highway between two places if it was plowing over a wetland that provided necessary environmental services like hurricane protection or flood protection? It didn't have to factor that into its considerations. What neighbors said is this efficiency mandate is actually not necessarily the best thing right? Because if you cut their wetland And hurricane hits. You no have to pit spend extra money on hurricane infrastructure. Great. It's it's sewed says, Take a step back and look at sort of all of the broad environmental impacts that you might have. And are there ways you can mitigate or avoid some of them. It might mean maybe not making the highway, the shortest between spirits. It might be that the highway meanders a little bit. But it's not prescriptive. It doesn't say you have to do one of these alternative environmental methods. It just says you have to actually consider them. And they did in general is it was its goal was to provide communities with a notice of proposed projects and allowed public commentary and allow them to sort of way in and have an insight into what's going on in their community. Have have environmental impact Studies. Kendra actually change the course of major projects or these mostly a formality. No, I mean they definitely have impacted major projects. Not necessarily in the way that you're thinking right? It's not like a black and white situation sought on enough. It's not like Oh, because of an environmental impact review. This project didn't happen. It's because of environmental impact review this project. We have happened somewhat differently so often tempt. You can't necessarily even tell the impact is an outsider looking in. To those kinds of conversations, allow for public comment and allow for people to weigh in and say like this isn't the best direction. This one is this works better, so it's not necessarily black or white. In that way. That makes sense. Kendra President Trump was making some remarks in Atlanta yesterday about this change, and he said that some of the need for regulations Can actually hold up construction for as long as 20 years or more. Is that right? No. So I looked. I looked at that claim, and it seems like he was referencing an airport in town's New Mexico and basically what me but because of this public comment Aspect of it, and because of this neighbourhood aspect of it, you can see you and say that the agency isn't doing its do environmental diligence if you don't want something, and so in the case of towers in Mexico, A lot of the locals didn't want that airport expansion and so because they felt that it was only going to benefit like private plane owners and people who were not full time residents of that region. And so they sued to sort of style the project. The other thing that I think he's factoring into is Jasmine is sort of the full scale of what it takes to build a construction project. Some people might argue that Nimbus slow down the purple line in Maryland for 16 years, and that's not fully accurate. The lawsuits that came about because of Niva sort of delay that project by three or four or five years, but not like 20 or 30 And the court is the opposite of that is essentially saying that community shouldn't have input on the things that are being built in their communities. Kendra Stick with us. We're going to take a quick break, but we'll be back with more. It's takeaway..

Trump calls on other countries to abandon Iranian nuclear deal

"President trump addressed the nation today his first words got right to the point as long as I'm president of the United States Iran will never be allowed to have a nuclear weapon after Ron made good on its threats and fired ballistic missiles at two military bases in Iraq that house US troops it was a very tense night there were no reported casualties or injuries today the president touted America's military might but also said we do not want to use it he called on other nations to come together to strike a new deal to manage Iran's nuclear ambitions nations have tolerated Iran's destructive and destabilizing behavior in the Middle East and beyond those days are over Iran has been the leading sponsor of terrorism in their pursuit of nuclear weapons threatens the civilized world we will never let that happen tension is still in the air tonight at least two rockets fell in the green zone near the US embassy in Baghdad but without causing any casualties to make sense of all this we spoke with evil doll earlier today he served as US ambassador to NATO for four years during the Obama administration and is now president of the Chicago council on global affairs I as ambassador dollar for his gut reaction to trump's remarks today well I think we came to the brink of war and the president wisely decided to step down and away from that brink and decide that the escalation I've gone on far enough the danger of getting into a war at the con too great and the right thing to do now was to take the temperature down a little bit were there specific things trump said that really stood out for you yeah I think he said that he took the reigning in action as a way to stand down from the escalation and you said that was a good thing I think that was the right interpretation and your radiance decided that they have to respond in some form militarily to the killing us generals who the money and did so by making clear that they have to respond from Iran was a missile attack that in the end did damage to materials but not to people in the house in court in terms of what trance overall strategy is with Iran were you able to draw any conclusions today well here's the problem because the overall strategy that he has pursued since walking away from the nuclear deal in may of twenty eighteen has failed it led us to the brink of war because rather than Iran giving in to our maximum pressure campaign they decided to engage in what the Ron calls maximum resistance and as a result the two fundamental objectives that we have set ourselves a modification in Iran's behavior with regard to the beach and a further constraints on its nuclear program both of those objectives are further away today than they were in may twenty eighteen so rather than continuing down the sale pass this is the time it seems to me when the president having seen and stood at the brink of for what you re assessors entire strategy I'll take a new approach a lot of people think Iran's long game is getting the US out of Iraq completely informally making a racket total proxy of Iran is that what you believe that's what the Ayatollah Khamenei S. at today it's what president who I need tweet it today that clearly they want not only the United States out of Iraq they want the United States out of the region that is not in our interest it is in our interest to continue to have good relations and the continued presence economic political military in the region and therefore we have different objectives the question is are we going to achieve that through war are gonna cheetah through diplomacy an effective strategy I think the answer ought to be go for more effective strategies and we should up today which was only lettuce incredible yeah and as a former diplomat where is the room for pharmacy between the US and around at this point well the first thing to do is to re engage with our allies in Europe and indeed the China and Russia all of whom were members and signed up to the nuclear we have found ourselves now isolate once again alone in the world when it comes to both Iran writ large and the nuclear question specifically and rather than this the present it today calling on other countries to walk away from the nuclear deal we need to re engage with those parties and indeed with Ron to get back to the negotiation that allows for more stringent limitations on Iranians nuclear program a better and more coordinated strategy with our allies to deal with Iranian this behavior in the region and other stops but the first step for us is rather than telling the Europeans that they should do something they're not going to do which is get out of this agreement was to start working with the Europeans to find a common strategy towards the region in general and towards the Iran but the very first thing out of president trump's mouth today even before he said hello to the audience was Iran will never have a nuclear bomb basically as long as I'm alive well and I hope that that he's right about that that is a strategy that his two predecessors have also been pursuing but if that's the question why would he even go back to the negotiating table well because the way to get around without nuclear weapons is one of two ways you either prevented from doing so militarily and we just saw how dangerous that Rhodians or you do it through diplomacy so the trying we have decided that military action and further escalation is not the right way to go the only option we have left is diplomacy not diplomacy starts not just with Tehran but more importantly with our allies in Europe with Russia and China and even a dollar if you have the ear of the Iranian leadership what would you tell them I would tell them that if they want to make sure that their people I have a better economic future they need to engage with the United States and European allies Russia and China to find a new agreement that puts stringent limitations on if you're clear program while allowing it to gauge economically but the rest were if a dollar served as ambassador to NATO from two thousand nine to two thousand thirteen is currently the president of the Chicago council on global affairs thank you very much thank you for on a run in perspective on the crisis we reached out to send up a semi and Iran's capital she teaches American studies at Tehran university and a sympathetic to Iran's government from early in the morning could ever different feelings coming from the Iranians some of are very proud of what the Iranians have gone specially the military bases his target as was considered as one of the major cases on the fact that nothing happened to the missiles and they targeted the place of a proud of this at the same time people were worried about the reaction of the United States so for the Iranians I think the major issue right now is that this will in a sense of making Americans to withdraw from from the whole Middle East I think this was one of the major issues that was raised by Iran's supreme leader today inherent in his speech where he sat okay because a slap on the face of the Americans you tacked to the base and however he also said that the major issue for all is and that the Americans were little from the whole Middle East and did you get a sense of what might be around position if the US does not withdraw from at least Iraq I think the Iranians would wait and see what happens and if this presence means that the Americans are going to target you're wanting an interest you Manian figures official figures and for a day that would be another harsh reaction it was really interesting to hear trump began his speech with a straight line saying that Iran will never in my time have a nuclear bomb but after that let's hear president trump describing what he sees right now as a wrong position far ran appears to be standing down which is a good thing for all parties concerned and a very good thing for the world so Xena is Arron standing down well first of all Iranians never claimed a D. are developing a nuclear weapon so first of all I think this assumption is that wrong or the premises long itself so what I would say is a doing is I'm not making a nuclear bomb and the whole thing is a mistake president trump also said this our missiles are big powerful accurate lethal and fast under construction or many hypersonic missiles the fact that we have this great military equipment however does not mean we have to use it we do not want to use it American strength both military and economic is the best deterrent then of a semi do you accept that statement at face value is this now the the opportunity for both parties to de escalate and we'll tensions now he's well I don't think there would be any signs of relations in the foreseeable future was what happened to draw also a money and his **** shin if it has a significantly you and make a major blow to the feelings of the Iranian so you so the massive presence of Iranians for the funeral of the journal essentially money in gun raising the issue of getting close or friends at this time since very in a sense very stupid because how you can kills a high ranking official Iranian also show and then talking about having translations a day Laney ins is enough but before this whole escalation started between Iran and the U. S. there were these demonstrations in Iran over corruption and austerity what happened to those well actually what happened was that the Iranians became very United after what happened to Joe will slay money especially yesterday when the this funeral was taking place and I wasn't street I so people from different walks of life participating in the funeral because general Soleimani was like a sort of person who did not belong to specific Uranian political party he had a very simple life and people felt like he was also leaving the same or similar life close to the ordinary Iranians and this I actually created this universe themselves from being United against a foreign invasion once I got to say there were reports of many victims killed by running authorities during and after those demonstrations I mean do you think the families of those right those victims are just giving up and United by soul monies that suddenly I don't have contact with these people to ask about their feelings however this is the sort of thing that might happen in any other country then a foreign invasion or in front of a four nation is vice people usually get United and they put aside their differences so this majority I might say that these are all day actually are United not not just FOR D. Iranian government but for did hold the integrity of the lawn and its security xenon high semi teaches at the university of Tehran she joined us from the capital of Ron thank you very much thank you for having

Pro-Iranian Protesters End Siege of US Embassy in Baghdad

"Got the Iran backed Iraqi militia they've broken up their encampment outside the US embassy in Baghdad a move that could ease tensions between Tehran and Washington that escalated after fighters attacked the compound good morning this Bloomberg's in effect that Xena arguably in the ongoing escalation in in back then around the embassy loads both bad news for for Iraq as a sovereign and it's independents really is true because Iraq is kind of caught in that between between the rock and a hard place both so both the US and Iran have major influence in the country while the U. S. still making some troops and have had presence since two thousand three Iran has a huge influence in in in its neighbor Iraq through the Shia community that has its influence over politicians and over state institutions at as well as the militias which are loyal and backed by Iran but operate freely within Iraq a military escalation press alt direct between the US and Iran but via its various proxy channels is is now more likely would you say what do you hear the most likely scenario that you we would see S. conversions between the proxies with charter and what should they have that agency Iran and between that you either the Iraqi army or that yeah or the U. S. but they are kids on me is now in a situation where it's being forced to fight militias water protesters who are attacking the who what effect in the embassy and in a way that's kind of caught them in the middle of this storm that basically started after the U. S. conducted an air strike that killed twenty five the militia members that came off course after the killing of a US said contractor and the wounding of several two soldiers this comes at a really inconvenient time for the Iraqi government the political scene it's been in flux they have struggled to resolve the ongoing social unrest this is going to be just another burden as a it's the last thing that Iraq needs right now Iraq was dealing with as the massive protests all across the country against corruption and that I guess that rising in Iranian influence in the country and they wanted to do it without the entire political class in the country to try to come up with that a government that represents said the people and actually deals with bad real life issues they have and through that throughout that a movement now we're seeing that this movement take a backseat because now all that attention is focused on and on and on and on this and tack and that many analysts say that your own will step up a it's a actual let first to try to push out that if the U. S. out of Iraq all together thank you very much for that that's a thing of the past Bloomberg's economy and government

"Dictionary all right and as the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produced an inherent superiority of a particular race based on that definition do you think with the president saying these black women here two of his wives are immigrants he is not as Xena phobic racist the first black billionaire is endorsing president trump how old so so so stuff I love this seat is just like what I know what is happening no the body the definition that you are reading from the dictionary answer is no the answer is no with him and yes on that yeah yep because every white person is bad yeah it's it's interesting because they the media is doing something amazing here which is just saying it's racist yes like if you're Rachel Maddow and you're analyzing this it's completely fine for you to come up with the idea that you think his motivation is racism we are calling on your right right we are commentators we're trying to figure out what the news means right that's why I said I think Obama is a racist well maybe that's not quite right he just has a real hatred for the white culture okay that wasn't quite all right either remember the days where you couldn't call the president a racist so yeah right the race long as Glenn a recent I think the the guy who starts out every report with Glenn Beck the man who once called the president a race is there all right right after our broadcast where they really have called the president races different presidents makes it so I guess that makes Nancy Pelosi a racist because she called this president races yes No in it but the problem is is that you can have an opinion but not news people right news people are in are stating that these are racist statements and he is a racist for saying that they're not doing what I did I was trying to figure it out I feel like right no they're not they're saying he is and those plate let's play at least one of the things that let us down that path to make us think will look in there's something wrong here when Obama said this what was it because I don't think anybody maybe we don't know apps you will well okay when he said that his grandmother was a typical while yeah yeah who had a reaction to black people bread into our all the rage all races hang on play it she is a typical white person who if she sees somebody on the street in that she doesn't know yeah there's a reaction that's been bred into our experience was so much more races anything Donald Trump is tweeted or said in my in my to my knowledge I I haven't heard him say anything close to that that's is racist a pronouncement as I've ever any president the what he's saying is as racist is what he said about crap pull countries and I got news for ya they are crap whole country it doesn't matter if there's white people there are black or brown is a crap hole it's a crap it's a crap hole now I do and I will tell you that there are crap pull countries run by white people lots of crap pull countries run by white people it is the western ideology that helps pull you out of the crap poll status it's non whites it's the western Judeo Christian society that has brought people out of crap pulls as we are going back into a crap hole what's driving us there it's not people of white black yellow and red it doesn't matter it's the loss of the principles that the west is known for yeah yes I I agree with that and you know there's this idea that the Jr that journalists are engaging and like the like the tough guy journalist position right now is to say because some people are saying these are racially tinged comments and the like or if you want you have to speak the truth it was racist and you have to say it that's what journalists are basic goading each other into on Twitter and other places it's like they are acting as if the idea to say Hey if you don't like it go back to your country isn't exclusively racist comment and like in reality I can tell you that we have said precisely this exact same thing I can I remember Pat many times about piers Morgan yes piers Morgan coming your way you your stupid constitution allows you to put your all your your own I have your own guns they jump back and you can then go back to Britain if you like it there better than going back together fundamental problem with everything in our constitution that is not a fundamentally racist comment it's a thing about saying that we have principles here and we our country stands for something and if you despise want to fundamentally transform every aspect of it perhaps you'd enjoy it somewhere else more now let's let's let's do let's make sure that we state this when he said leave not racist when he said go back to you where you came from you can see that as racist why in your view our motives rasta you are applying the motive substituting the mode right here your saying that if he's if he sees somebody that's not white he doesn't think they're American that is not right Donald Trump and I would say like that's just the just the that's just bad speech right what's it isn't the more likely lobby answer here is that Donald Trump knows these for congresswoman loosely he knows up them he's probably heard the well publicized immigration issues that are major with Ilana Mar and probably wrongly assumed that they were they were all immigrants now look that is not a good thing for a president to do Menino sales he's not an immigrant right you know and he does he does have up and he sleeps with immigrants right yeah I know well he's having sex we think with current mean do you know what I mean what how is this possible when Paul McCartney said get back get back get back to where you once belonged did anybody and I don't think so really fine

"See you in for ten Xena Vega and this is the take away it's been over a year since Washington post columnist Jamal Khashoggi was killed after disappearing into a Saudi Arabian consulate in Turkey following an investigation the CIA determined that Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Selmon personally ordered Herschel Jeez assassination but the crown prince and the Saudi government have insisted that they were not behind the murder and now this week Saudi Arabia's criminal court reached a verdict in the case yesterday the Saudi court sentenced five people to death and three others two years in prison in connection with the killing the court also determined that it was not premeditated for more I'm joined now by Oct Porsche he met a foreign affairs reporter at HuffPost apart thanks for coming on thanks for having me for that what do we know about the trial because it was a very secretive process right this was an incredibly okay costumes the trial has gone on for about a year it was run by the public prosecutor who is directly on terror at the royal court and therefore under the prince you mentioned who's been implicated as will be noted western diplomats were allowed to be part of the trial and where lots of suds but everyone who attended was sworn to secrecy so for instance the public prosecutor has not named even the five men who have been convicted to tax the having named three were convicted to jail we don't know what business says what evidence any of thought right so no one has been named but do we know any more details about the people who have been found guilty other reports have previously found out so do you and has been doing its own impending fiery I'm deve name some of the folks who we strongly suspect of people now convicted including one of the man who was a friend's execs but who is implicated in chopping up construct his body he was yes that's what you were suspected to have had its body dismembered and chopped up and an intelligence officer who we know has been traveling with the prince on many trips the fall so the court found that the killing was not premeditated and this is a line that feels directly passed down from the Saudi government and of course numerous investigations have found evidence of premeditation including a report by our own CIA does this Saudi court ruling on premeditation mean anything it's important in that it shows the Saudi yet sense of pressure on the Saudi marriages but it's definitely not gonna and the questions you seem to you and that's that's come out and say this is unacceptable the British government that's an interesting split hearing how international reactions of con the British government said we call for justice give a kind of a comment the only government that's actually side this is an important and kind of productive step is the US government you know the trump administration has said through various titles at the White House at the state department that this is a good stop and we expect to continue going into French official process most people would say this is a sham trial now the crown prince Mohammed bin Selmon has remained hugely popular at home as young Saudis have been supporting a lot of the social changes that he's brought to the country so how have locals viewed the verdict in Saudi Arabia for a lot of Saudis Muhammad and sometimes rise has been a way to express nationalism pride in that country and this kind of sense of re but the construct G. incident changed all about it may not problematic what the Saudis of time and what the prince has done very slightly is not following the pressure he sort of routine this kind of eagle and arrogance which is at the heart of a lot of his support the fact that now the Saudis complete and say look we cleared the prince we clear out his top aides are no one even remotely related to him was involved gives the Saudi PR campaign and especially on Saudis who want to see nothing went wrong yeah a lot of evidence to point to and that's really all the cubs we're speaking about the Saudi Arabian.

"The take away I'm should be the best to filling in for ten Xena Vega before the break we were discussing the historical backdrop to Hanukkah and how Jewish immigrants adjusted to Christmas in the United States I'm speaking with Emma green from the Atlantic and Jonathan Sarna from Brandeis University Jonathan maybe you can talk to us a little bit more about efforts by Jews in the United States early on to adopt Christmas as a secular holiday do you think that Honecker could become secular in a similar way I think that there are many Jews who observe Hanukkah who do not view it as having deep religious content might even I have a hard time talking much about its history and in that sense it has grown secularized up but at the same time I'm very struck by how recent is that Hanukkah did move into the public square as as late as the nineteen fifties store windows did not have chronic cough even in New York and a you didn't see men no rest out on the streets that's really a development that begins in the nineteen seventies with the bod religious organization and they actually have several court cases in which they have to fight for the right to have a Hanukkah menorah in the public square that writers eventually confirmed by the Supreme Court which really says that the comic commando rock is in a way equivalent legally speaking to the Christmas tree if one can be in the public square the other can be in the public square in fact Jonathan I want to jump in here because I am a wrote about this decision and you found actually the Supreme Court treated Christmas trees in public a little bit differently than minorities in public is that right well one of the questions that was at stake here and there have been a series of cases about this issue is whether something like the need to be seen which we see and all sorts of public spaces is the equivalent of the menorah whether that can be in a government building or a government owned park and there's a a sort of differentiation here that the court uses or that legal thinking uses which is to say there's a difference between some sort of overtly religious symbol that seems to be an expression of what the government believes or supports verses these communal symbols that we now see ubiquitously even act you know a courthouse building or at a government administrative building you see that kind of a quality in equal weight given to something that shows a public expression of what these various groups in the United States celebrate at this time I feel like there's a lot of hand wringing over the commercialization of the holidays whether that's Christmas or Hanukkah how would you say that gift giving has or has ever been part of the tradition of Hanukkah one universal principle that I think guides Christmas and Hanukkah and maybe even holiday celebrations around this time for families that don't celebrate those two holidays is that we love consumer capitalism here in the United States and right now at this season we see from every corner stores and malls everyone trying to incentivize more and more gift giving and this is something that's lamented seasonally everyone trying to say these holidays have a deeper meaning about family or about faith not about gift giving but really in American culture we see that this all consuming force this incentive to buy stuff especially for your kids how has been able to take over these holidays so in some ways even though Hanukkah has been set apart as a separate holiday for separate people there really is a lot that's overlapping about Hanukkah and Christmas we've been talking mainly about what happens when a Jewish populations from other parts of the world first came to America and we're attempting to assimilate but are there other examples of people from other religions other faiths coming to America and sort of adapting their practices to the American Christmas culture Jonathan another example of this is what we've seen with the Wally as some thing on the festival of lights are celebrated in this season of the year and there are other groups I think that I have learned from Jews that you can simultaneously be part of the season and apart from it which is really what I think the Jewish community has tried to do over the last two decades am I feel like we've spent a lot of this conversation framing this as if only negative things have come out of the Christmas vacation of other holidays but what are the positive effects it's a good for all of us in the U. S. to share celebrations at this time of year you know I think the story of Christmas is a very American story in the sense that as we've been discussing it's become a shared celebration that has a lot of secular meaning and takes over our shopping malls in our streets but it's just as much of an American story to have different groups of people whether their ancestors came over as Jews in the nineteenth century to whether their parents and grandparents are recent immigrants from the seventies or eighties or nineties and I think that's such an American story because in some ways this is a country that's made up of people who come from all of these different places and traditions and who figure out their own spin on those traditions in the American context there's so much diversity here around this time of year he's the orthodox Christians who celebrate Christmas a few weeks later than Roman Catholics or Protestants in much of the United States you see Muslims who have figured out ways like going bowling or trying to avoid shopping malls of relating to the Christmas celebration and you have a lot of families who are both families so both Hanukkah and Christmas or Christmas and a little something else or Hanukkah and a little something else all of these stories to me are very much the American ness of this time of year people trying to figure out how their particular identity should be in relation to.

The Bell Jar

"The bell jar by Sylvia Plath is set mainly in New York City but it's not always thought of as a New York novel like Catcher in the raw I or the age of innocence are that's probably because what's autobiographical the novel tends to eclipse other aspect of it just a month after the Bell Jar was first published in nineteen sixty three plath killed herself since the book is pretty autobiographical and its narrator attempt suicide it can be hard not to read it as a sort of literary suicide note but of course there's a lot more to the novel it's about a young woman from the Boston suburbs who like plath Lanza Plum Internship Guest Editing Women's magazine in New York in the summer of Nineteen fifty-three and it does a lot to capture what did and still does go along with trying to make it in New York all the outsized possibilities and outside disappointments on this Shen of New York icons producer Beenish Ahmed has the story of the Bell Jar I I read the Bell Jar when I was sixteen and Board in Ohio dreaming of being a writer and reporter in New York City a lot like Sylvia plath who won a golden ticket to that Dream Life a summer working at a top women's Xena when Sylvia Plath was at Smith college she went to guest editorship to Mademoiselle magazine her and a number of other girls to New York in the Mark Nineteen fifty three if you know anything about the bell jar is that it's based on Sylvia plath its own life when the main character Esther Greenwood goes back home after that summer she liked plath attempt suicide is committed to mental institutions and is treated with octroi shock therapy but the bell jar is not just a story of an unstable teenager plath uses her own story to reflect on the culture she lived in she lays out that mission right there in the first sentence it was a queer sultry summer the summer they electrocuted the rosenbergs and I didn't know what I was doing in New York Julius and Ethel Rosenberg had been convicted of conspiring to sell secrets about the atomic bomb to Soviet spies that's a powerful Metaphor says novelist med bullets are the beginning the first lines of the bell jar she talks about the execution of the Rosenbergs and then later on the character of Greenwood experiences electroconvulsive therapy and you make the link as a reader about electricity the and the terrible time in America which I didn't live through the rosenbergs but just the sense of her pain being expressed so beautifully so

Trump And President discussed on Morning Edition

"President trump spent a good part of his time this week attacking for democratic congresswoman his attacks both verbal and on social media have made these lawmakers representatives Alexandria across the Cortez ill Han Omar I Anna Presley and Rasheeda to leave the most visible Democrats in the country more visible in fact than the twenty plus Democrats who are running for president democratic analista mall Simmons is with us now he's worked as an adviser for several democratic candidates he also hosts a show on hill TV it's called why you should care good morning tomorrow good morning hello alright so let's revisit some of what has happened this very busy week the president held a rally in North Carolina on Wednesday and the crowd started chanting this about Congress woman Omar I think he is unifying his party and he is helping to fracture the Democratic Party in so if you're thinking of it purely tactically yeah I think fracture Democrats president trump get reelected in twenty twenty all right so that was not the right tape with the crowd started chanting was send her back send her back send her back the tape we heard there was GOP strategist Scott Jennings he was on the show yesterday and he told us he does not like this message because represented Omar is American but he said this is working to destabilize the Democratic Party do you think he's right I don't think is destabilizing the Democratic Party what it we're doing here is but the president is going after Democrats he is also energizing Democrats so the Democrats are really coming together around this idea of standing up against in a phobia you know what we seem from the Chinese exclusion act two of the ship that was turned around the Saint Louis that when the ship of Jewish refugees showed up the United States to what we saw in Charlotte's filled just in two thousand seventeen the president's actions are a long line in a long line of Xena phobic reaction this country has had to immigrants into into people were diverse and so Democrats recognize that and what you saw that two hundred thirty five member vote in the house tell you Democrats are fractured in fact all Democrats in the house of representatives voted against the president's words to defend the four women that the president attacked devoted to condemn his remarks is racist Yap me ask you something about a democratic unity or disunity this all started because last week speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi gun who kind of spot with this Congress women they oppose her approach to a border funding bill and then she criticized them in The New York Times do you think that rift is really over listen at progressive Democrats are trying to do something which is very different than I think what Nancy policies up to now because he's concerned about passing bills right and so when she says they only have four votes begin nessie blows his world that's what matters in the world of a Jana Presley in Alexandria Casio Cortez and the other women what they're doing is laying out something as a different course for Democrats at that this may be a little more long term it appeals to people out in the country and I think a lot of people in the country may be responding to that because for you can like it or you could not like it you can think is real or not real but the green new deal is now something that people are recognized that the Democrats have a climate change policy and people can decide how much of that climate change policy they want to be for or against that's something that Democrats across the country have been hungering for which is to have some have big bold ideas and big plans that will pass this year but may be something Democrats to achieve in the long term that's interesting because moderate Democrats will say look this kind of progressive ideas will not win over trump voters you think they might be missing something well the question is which truck voters are you going after and I'm not exactly sure trump also voters are equal if you talk to somebody like Stephanie three Oct over AT Emily's list who runs that organization focused on electing women she would say you think of the lunch the guide sitting at the counter with the lunch pail and Pennsylvania Ohio but maybe should think about the guy but we should think about the woman who serving in the coffee at that lunch counter right when Democrats won in two thousand eighteen they won because they had a huge turnout from based Democrats and then they were able to sway a bunch of women to come over about particularly non college educated white women who were willing to go along with the broader democratic agenda that is that's the target population for Democrats in the election and of course the party will try to appeal to as many people as possible but with the party should not let up on things like being pro immigration worried about police brutality worried about some of the more progressive issues that are on the docket in order to try to woo some voters who just they just may not be that many of these guys who would ever vote for Democrats under any circumstance you've advised many democratic campaigns and I wonder if you were in that position today what would you tell one of the people who are running for president because that person is supposed to be the voice of the Democratic Party but these Congress woman because of the president's attention are taking up that space what should a White House hopeful do all the news item that the the person running for president will not have to worry about any individual member of Congress okay so much money and attention focused on them that they will dwarf any other of voice and become the standard bearer for the party even if the president keeps on talking about these congresswoman because he's the one giving them the attention of the press is going to say with the present the president say with the president's gonna say what Democrats have to do is offer a clear compelling a concise vision for the future an alternative to what on which I'm going to say we can't be in a position of only reacting to Donald

"And so it would have remained a story, and we would have known nothing more about Xena, what has kept the story alive is that she had at least four children with local men. The circumstances are unclear but there are tales of drunken orgies and curious men being granted access to her and exchange for money, the nature, the based page to Ninety-six. Of course, Sykes is not alone. In retelling, the story this way, it says, if in the crypto zoology world, you can't call sexual assault or rape. If the victim might be in the ender tall or an all mosty. I don't imagine. There's any case law around that. But it's relevant because what Sykes is genetic research revealed is Zane was fully human the surprise only being that she was. In fact, fully sub Saharan African in her genetic lineage now, think about that for a moment. Are you thinking about it? Good. Now they about all the legends of Zanna you've ever heard or read, or watched, and I want you to a race the word musty and the were Bigfoot and the word Neanderthal. And I want you to replace it with African woman, and I want you to look for the words like captured and replace that with enslaved and suddenly, the legend of Zana is a very, very different story. Should we put any credence into the claims that she was extremely tall that she was covered with hair that she had no human speech? If we consider that the stories are word of mouth for more than a century before. Isn't it possible that the legends are just a racially motivated way of mythology? This unusual black slave woman being kept in a village. Causa. That was my assumption after reading about Sykes is findings. But again, I haven't read his book, when I interviewed him and since Karen, I are constantly researching for the next episode I hadn't given the topic much thought until we covered legends of the Balkans recently during the editing of that episode an episode beset by many technical challenges. There was a piece that got lost, but a tiny fragment of that segment, hit me, like a brick in the editing process. Our guest Christopher closets was explaining one of the fairy legends of the Balkans that of thus Xena. In the regional lore there can be many of these entities. But they all represent a kind of magical being that inhabits a particular grove are a mountain are valley as a sort of protector spirit. If you're a character in allege in the Balkans, and you need assistance in the forest, you can beseech thee Zane of the grove to give you magical help so in folklore as ENA is a wild woodland spirit in our caz, Ian Xena was alleged to be a wild woman was this just a coincidence, or was her name, actually a descriptors tying her unusual traits to a mythical creature are put it another way was calling her Xena the equivalent of finding a dark skinned mute boy, surviving in the wilds of Canada and naming him pan, and one hundred years later having crypto. Zoologist tell us that his name was pan because he was black like a frying pan. Completely missing the folklore ties. I couldn't be sure, but I wanted to know more insights book, when describing CENA, he says this. Part, human part, ape with dark skin Zena means black in Abkhaz. She was covered with long reddish, Brown hair which formed, a main down her back the nature of the beast page to ninety five..

"All right, David in Texas. With our final question, how early would you draft the defensive top defenses score more than top wide receivers or running backs and nearly as much as a quarterback. The, you know, maybe maybe you're, you've got a wacky league where there are, you know, huge bonuses and you wanna take them around or too early, but I still would not reach for a defense because when you say a defense scores more than the running backs and wide receivers, maybe that's your year end totals, but defenses are so dependent upon the up. I mean, it's very rare for defense to go weaken and week out against every opponent and and be great. And then you've got teams where you can stream the colts defense right against the right match up and and outscore those running. I mean, if if one outscores them, you know, it's kinda like all the defenses in the league are going to do well. If you're scoring system is good for defense. Yeah, isn't say if you're scoring system emphasizes any position much more than another position. It doesn't change the the value that position very much because the water level rises for all of the. Those players inside of that position or all of the defenses. It's an important thing to remember. Right? You could double all the scoring for quarterbacks. We're still going to tell you the draft one later. I got to run something by the judge. I'm going to need a ruling over here. All right. I hope he's standing by judge Gimondi Mike, dusting off his gavel. My Kevin Sorbo reference key was in a movie called coal Lucon who I thought it was crawl. Do Do I. I am I forgiven judge.

"Seen anything like that before except quote molecular acid which is funny that that term doesn't really make any sense since all acids are composed of molecules and in the sequels they correct this by saying the aliens have concentrated acid for blood which does make more sense in the sense that they're suggesting it's not like vinegar some of their friendly acid that's highly diluted to a safe concentration it's a highly concentrated strong acid but later in this episode we should explore exactly what might be going on in terms of the aliens blood what how it could be that acidic if there were something truly like that in nature yes we will circle back around to xena morris at the end but anyway so why why this obsession with acid we love this stuff keeps showing up in our media all the time even though we're not we can't be bothered to learn all the chemistry of exactly what chemicals are are out there that could do real harm to our body so it's always just acid you know there's some acid it's just basically like a man agile corrosive substance yeah exactly so we we wanted to talk today about the real science of strong acids and i don't know to what extent you can find chemicals in the real world that match up to these the movie acid and how close you can get yes okay so to give you the basics before we get into the the strongest acids out there the movie acid we we should do a real simple overview of acids bases and h i'm not going to turn this into a chemistry class but we do need to sort of explain how they work so first of all picture your periodic table and then go directly to square one hydrogen it's the most basic atom in the universe got one proton and one electron and most of the hydrogen in the universe has no neutrons but if you want to add one or two you can get deterioration or tritium but we're not really concerned with that right now so you're hydrogen atom one proton one electron and it's electrically neutral because it's balanced like that the electron has.
