Okay so then my second question to you in this. This is gonna sound like i'm being flip. I'm not this is a real question you said. They only gave us thirty six hours. I know you know that the outside perception of congress is there is no amount of time where it's possible to get bipartisan agreement on legislation right now could congress get something done on this through the house and senate. Is that a possible. Next steps should the biden administration. Take the first step that you're wanting them to take yes the white house and the cdc should act unilaterally. What cavanaugh offered was an opinion. I non binding opinion not a ruling if things get tied up in the courts. Then we'll be ready for that fight but again it would buy time now. We've already appropriated the funds to were over forty billion dollars. You already appropriated the funds but states need time to get this money out now if if for some reason The white house and cdc cannot accurate laterally. Then the senate is still in session.

So there are tools available to us but in terms of The tool that should most immediately be leveraged and gives us our best chance at buying time for states to get these funds out. That have already been appropriated through the rental assistance program and buys our families more time so just in the white house in the cdc to act and to act urgently just in the last hour or so we heard from the biden administration essentially a third plea which is states. Please step in and at the state level. Do what you can do to extend the moratorium while we get this worked out. Do you see potential for us. Sort of a federal and state partnership here where local states and governors and local states might be able to take action that sidesteps some of the federal questions. And get some of these short term outcomes. The buys time for the forty billion dollars. There should always be partnership Between the state. And what's happening a federally.

"It out the charlie. We've had a addiction moratorium debate over the last week or so on the left how they can get this done by any means. Necessary a lot of pressure on the. Cdc what have you made. The entire project was unconstitutional from the start and american who cherishes separation of powers and limits on the federal. Government should be thrilled that the moratorium has gone away and should work assiduously to make sure that this doesn't happen again. This was not a good idea that has outlived its usefulness. This was an illegal act. Promulgated by the trump administration and illegally continued by the biden administration. It was an act. The cdc had no power to indulge in and indeed in which the federal government has no constitutional power to indulge in.

Democrats Are Changing the Narrative on COVID-19 Again
"Rumors. I'm hearing up on Capitol Hill from reputable sources that they're changing the message on Covid, the Biden administration and all of his little surrogates and deputies out there and the lemon Democrats because they thought they could win in the midterms and maintain good public approval by running on a message. You know what that message was? You ready? Wait for it. The message was. I'm Joe Biden. We stop the pandemic ticker tape Parade time in New York City. I did it all. Look at me. Let's celebrate. Take about I'm not kidding. They thought that was gonna work. But what happened? They realized about halfway through that message. Folks has something to do with the delta variant. Okay, This virus is serious, all of the variants or serious, but they're serious for people with very specific problems. Co morbidity, these people who are obese. Otherwise you have a very, very, very, very good chance of surviving this virus. Very good. Okay. If you don't meet those conditions, older, elderly people, right? People are infirmed, so they thought they could run on that the we stop the pandemic message. They found out that they're so incompetent. This administration street crime started erupting. They opened the border people piling across our southern border. The border is not even a border. It's a suggestion. Then all of a sudden you saw a mild spike in some of these places, so they're saying to themselves halfway through, we're going to lose these midterms. But we may even lose the governorship of Virginia Young kid could win the Republican there. This is crazy. This is going to be embarrassing. What do I do? And some focus group came to them and said, You have to switch your messaging. You have to switch your messaging to. It's a pandemic again. It's totally out of control. And that has to read that has two purposes for them for the election, because, remember, it's all about power. It's not about facts

Goal that we as an administration because we believe in bold ambitious goals that goal now and they also missed it by a month. Wow they got it though. Bill seventy percent is the axa. At least seventy percent of adult americans have gotten at least one shot. How many of them are going to get to though That's the question and now they're gonna be able to get to the other thirty percent who haven't gotten a shot yet thinking if you haven't gotten the shot by now sorry they gonna give you a real good incentive to get there. That's what i'm thinking too. I mean with the misinformation as well. I mean it's a tough sell. They i mean they hit like stop well. Early late may and they started to hit that segment of the population. Said you know i'm young. I'm healthy man. Well and then you get the rest of the population. And i completely forgot about this until you brought it up yesterday or maybe even last week you brought it up to we all. I completely forgot so you mentioned it. When trump announced that he had gotten the vaccine in nine months had bertone abebe birth. The vaccine all the democrats are like. I'm not getting. Oh trump's vaccine. We can't trust this. It was a solid to the last two months of the election cycle. They campaigned against the vaccine. Same ones and then the same people who campaign against it all of a sudden. They're in the white house all now. You're going to get the vaccine that becomes biden's vaccine so now it's a good vaccine. I'm like and you haven't politicized this alot.

Protect communities will help protect families and save more lives. Okay but is normal. People you and i sit here and we go all right well. What's the positive from this. And i guess she did say the positive doesn't look like lockdowns. You're gonna have well. She said because of the seventy percent and most in this is the cdc. These are health official guidelines that the supposed biden administration follows because so many people have received at least one vaccine. There is a very slim chance it would become a pandemic again because people are protected against the virus. Because they're saying as we've said many times this morning if you have it if you have been vaccinated the odds are if you're infected. It's a symptomatic you don't even know. Or they're mild symptoms or in. The key should go to the hospital. You'll leave the hospital. You're not gonna die from it. Yeah so they say that's why you should get vaccinated.

With over seven hundred thousand doses administered. That's good that's progress. So we want to say to the steve harvey nation. Please listen we want to try to help save lives and right now. We want to hear part of an article that an icu doctor posted on. Yahoo dot com. Her name is dr phil and she wrote. I cannot understand the simultaneous decision to not get vaccinated and the demand to end the restrictions imposed by a pandemic. I cannot help but recoil. As if i've been slapped in the face when my icu shouldn't i icu. You patient tells me they didn't get vaccinated because they just didn't get around to it. Although such individuals do not consider themselves anti vaxxers. Their inaction itself is a decision a decision to not protect themselves or their families to fill a precious. Icu bed to let new variants flourish and to endanger the health. Care workers and immunosuppressed people around them. Their inaction is a decision to let this pandemic continue to rage. I am at a loss to understand how anyone can look at these past months of the pandemic more than six hundred thousand lives lost in the us and more than four million worldwide. And not believe it's real or take it seriously. Doctrine novell went on to say now painfully realize. Perhaps we were never on the same side and we never had a common enemy. Perhaps the war has been among ourselves all along. We have won many battles but unvaccinated america is choosing to let cove it when the war. Wow wow that is deep and yet very profound very profound actor to doctor dr. No go ahead go ahead. What were you saying jack. Tom and i was just saying how long does it take. How many people do you have to see down before you make vision. I you know it's almost like you're waiting and waiting until the very last second and going to catch up to bite you in the but you know so i just don't get it. I don't get not getting his shot. I do not understand it. And sometimes unfortunately tommy you say how long sometimes it's until you get it then then you see and there. We don't talk to happen. Talking about lindsey. Graham having a virus now his whole approach and his whole attitude because he has it. It's a different tone. Now yeah once you catch somebody near you catches in you. Look at it different. Which is why the numbers are going up with. People getting vaccinated because they see that people are dying and they don't have to die they really do not have to die. And that's what the doctor said the other day. She said you know those of you. Don't take the virus and don't get shot you. A lot of people.
Is the Federal Employee Vaccine Requirement Preplanned by Big Tech and Big Pharma?
"Today. I guess it was today or yesterday. I heard that the biden administration. Which i don't take seriously as an administration but we'll just put that in brackets that they are requiring federal employees to get the vaccine. What what am i to make of this. I mean you're you're right to ask and it's all kind of coming together in a very I don't have evidence that it's all coming together in a plea preplanned way except knowing what campaigns at the very highest levels look like it's clearly a pincher movement right the one way or another. What my read is is a former political consultant. Is that the people who helped elect the biden administration. Whether it's big tech big pharma. Some combination of those bill gates You know had a deliverable and the deliverable was clearly seventy percent vaccinated and vaccine passports. And why is this attractive. You and i have talked about it. I warned everyone about it. In april i tried as hard as i can. And i have to say our warnings. Our conversations have borne fruit. Because i'm so sorry that youtube declaring you're trying to based on what you and i spoke about and i hope this conversation survives but when tech companies like microsoft which is one of the companies that has the contract have vaccine passports. They will be more powerful than any administration really. They'll be more powerful than nation states. So that's what they want and they weren't getting it right. There's been resistance Peop- i'm not anti vaccine but people have reasonably been thinking well unhealthy. I'm under forty year. I'm under fifty You know these are untested I'm not at a high risk category. I'm i've not willing. I'm going to wait in in wait till actual formal fda approval. Whatever people can make whatever decisions they want for themselves. The bottom line is the cdc has corrected its overstatements of the past and is acknowledging that almost half of americans have chosen this point not to be
Biden's Talk of Vaccine Mandates Sends Labor Unions Into Disarray
"To attest that they're vaccinated for Covid 19. Or submit to frequent testing. The new policy covers the country's four million federal civilian workers and contractors and the unions that represent those workers are divided over the president's directive. NPR's Brian Naylor reports As cities reimpose mask mandates and millions of Americans continue to refuse to be vaccinated. The Biden administration is turning to the nation's federal workforce to slow the spread of the delta variant of Covid 19. All share in the head of the International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers, which represents some 25,000 federal employees and agencies, including NASA thinks the directive is a good idea. We are strongly supportive of mandated vaccines for federal workers assurance says That's as long as there are medical and religious exemptions, But he says, everyone deserves a safe workplace. We have well over 600,000 people who are currently dead. We also have a variant of covid that is running rampant that is highly infectious, and we want to make sure that we maintain a healthy work environment for the people that we represent and all federal workers for that matter. But other groups have problems with the Biden administration's new rule. The Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association issued a statement saying it was concerned by any move that would mandate the vaccine and that quote, forcing people to undertake a medical procedure. Is not the American way and is a clear civil rights violation. Ralph to Julhas heads the union that
Biden Administration Is Moving Infected Illegal Aliens Into Our Communities
"So if you're vaccinated, you're an American citizen or a legal immigrant and you're in this country. You are to wear a mask outside and inside. Because you might pass the doubt the variant that somebody who's not vaccinated. In the meantime, an illegal alien and by the way over the southern border. They're coming from all corners of the earth, not just central and South America all over the world coming into the country. What are the chances that at least some of them have the virus? So that Delta variant well, we know it's good. Because they caught a whole hotel filled with people who had the Covid 19, and we're in a diner and walking down the street of a small community in Texas. Well, how many of these people are all over the country? Being bused all over the country. They're being flown all over the country without being tested. Now this is absolutely incoherent. So illegal aliens are getting a health past and by the way, black lives matter, Antifa people who riot they get a health past. They gotta help past all last year. Democrat members of the Texas Legislature. They got a health past. But it's incoherent point number two Vaccinated. People have to wear mask to pretend unvaccinated people, he says. Illegal aliens. The overwhelming number of whom clearly are not tested or not not vaccinated. They're not to wear anything. And in fact our government's going to help move them all over the country. Does that make sense to anybody? I don't care your politics. Does that make sense to anybody?
What Is Actually Biden's Stance on Masks and Vaccines?
"Anybody out there understand? By the administration's position on masks and vaccinations. I mean, truly, Does anybody comprehend what's going on here? And there are experts who used to work in the government and experts who don't work in the government. They don't understand what's going on here, and many of them are saying Can we see the data that you're using? Please? Can we see your data? On the delta variant. And what it is that is driving you with these Really confusing. Dictates. Have you ever seen anything like this? The CDC has no data. They won't release it because there isn't any. Well, I thought this is based on science. Now, people raising questions. Forget about me people raising questions. They're called morons. We have professionals, experts, scientists. Medical doctors raising questions. Look, you do what you want. I got vaccinated as fast as I could, and I'm glad I did. There are people with maladies. I can't I got that. But here's my problem. What Biden and his administration are doing. And when the new head of the CDC and the others are doing Is there discouraging people from being vaccinated, in essence? Because they're saying even if you're vaccinated? You're not fully protected, and you need to wear a mask. So if people are already cynical or hesitant, Have an ideological issue with this. You just gave them a reason not to do it. The incompetence. Incoherence of this administration is second to none. Which I guess is understandable, since it is the Biden administration.
Could Biden Enforce a COVID-19 Vaccine Federal Mandate?
"Trying to navigate what what vaccine mandates might look like. If they happen. I think they will. We're all trying to navigate the mixed messages and the contradictions and the flipflops from the cdc role. Trying to understand what this country is gonna look like in the days and weeks and months. Maybe even years to come and we're seeing this shift. It seems like there has been a resistance even from the biden administration to do to to make vaccines mandatory but was reading something for the new york times this morning that the tide is turning. And there's more and more demand for vaccine requirements and. Maybe it's fueled by people like geraldo yesterday. On the five he got into it with the rest of the panel. He's often the the token liberal on the panel. Kind of i guess. Replacing taking the taking up the the juan williams mantle but here was geraldo pushing back against katie pavlovich and jesse waters and talking about what he would do if anybody came into his the home of his grandchildren. It was quite remarkable. A quite a display of a tough guy and he. I don't doubt that he's a pretty tough guy. Geraldo has been through a lot. You know he didn't he get his nose broken once on stage. So many threw a chair at him in a big. You know highly publicized. tv show. He was hosting years ago. He's a scrappy guy was a new york city reporter kind of morphed into this national correspondent for fox news. And he believes the you better not go anywhere near his grandchildren. If you're not vaccinated. I think less of people who are not vaccinated. I think that it is an arrogant selfish. Reckless act and i have five grandchildren all under the age of twelve. Who are susceptible to someone sneezing on them. I think it is absolutely so selfish. Netted is appalling sometimes. Government has to tell not ask god government to tell right now. I want people to have to show. When i go to the bar i want to know everybody's

Trish Regan Explains the Dangers of Biden Administration's Money Printing Policy
"So so. I'm not being devil's advocate. But i i need your your market and economic acumen here. This isn't a new thing. The drunken fed the drunken sailors on capitol hill. The the printing monopoly. Money isn't a biden phenomena. It seems like we've been doing this for decades. I it seems as if there's never you know the ferryman who's gonna take his deal at the end of the day. Is this not just a rubber band. That constantly stretches at at what point does break in one at some. So what does that look. What causes it to break. Okay so what is it to break is when the economy can't keep up with these inflationary prices anymore. When you start saying you know what. I don't think i'm going to get takeout from that indian restaurant because like the prices are insane when everything costs more which were getting closer and closer to while simultaneously wages nowhere and. I don't anticipate that wages are going to be going up. This is like the barack obama joe biden years all over again for eight years no economic growth less than two percent. Annualized growth said. That's what we saw. Well guess what the cost of housing went up. The cost of gas went up. I mean everyday living costs for americans. They went higher. Education cost healthcare costs. Everything became more expensive. But guess what nobody was making any more money. That's one of the things that you know. Nobody gives the trump administration credit enough for but when you look at median incomes under those four. Well three and a half years until cova you know really took the the bottom out from under but prior to kovin everyday americans were actually doing pretty well. They were doing much better. Because median incomes started to go higher and that we had not seen in years. So now we've got a situation where everything else is going to cost more and yet people aren't going to have as much money
Borderline Disorder: The UN's Refugee Treaty at 70
"Today marks the seventieth anniversary of the united nations refugee convention a landmark treaty that established the obligations that countries have to people fleeing persecution. A core principle is nonrefoulement. That migrants should not be returned to a country where they faced serious threat of persecution. But in recent years the refugee convention has become perhaps the least popular treaty in the rich world in two thousand fifteen millions of asylum seekers many fleeing the civil war in syria tried to reach europe in any way they could men women and children. The beach is covered in life jackets and the remains of rubber boats relentless waves of people washing up on the shores of greece news reports were flooded with images of people making a desperate and often deadly journey arriving. It's a gateway to europe. Boats packed with migrants and refugees. Continue to land on the shores of the greek island of last balls oats packed with migrants and refugees. The law makes a sharp distinction between the two the difference between seeking shelter and simply seeking a better life. That's a hugely politicised question in america. Where president joe biden faced a slow burn crisis from his first day in office. Yesterday the biden administration said it would speed up. Its work through the backlog of asylum claims as well as its work deporting. Those who don't qualify and in britain where in the past week record numbers of migrants attempted to make the crossing from france. The home secretary spoke of patients that is thinning asylum systems that cost taxpayers over a billion pounds. A year enough of da's arriving illegally on our shores directed by organized crime gangs seventy years after the treaties founding the world is creating more and more refugees even as fewer and fewer governments have the appetite to protect them.

Look at the facts. We are talking about a disease that killed six hundred thousand people almost all exclusively oven advanced age with existing comb mobility's at the same time. The most egregious part of this decision from the biden administration is to mosque children children. Who if you look.

Chiller have a mortality rate with kobe. Nineteen of zero point zero five percent but they want you to live in fear. They want to deny the efficacy of the vaccine. They want to deny the concept of a vaccine.

Will America Make It Through Biden's Administration?
"Hey charlie carla from newport beach. I'm seeing on the news. A new poll by ifs which is a division of reuters. If i'm not mistaken shows fifty. Five percent of american adults said they are quote pessimistic about the direction of the country. The first time a majority is more pessimistic than optimistic during the biden administration. Where do you stand. Are you pessimistic or optimistic. About the direction of america. Under joe biden. That's a great question. Look obviously i'm pessimistic about what joe biden is doing. He's a total. He's a travesty. It's it's actually a tragedy it really is. I don't really there's you could use all these words. And i just kind of laughed at these house.

I am optimistic that there will be a response to this. I am optimistic that we can improve things and i am optimistic that our ideas are so much better and rooted in truth that the only missing ingredient is courage and this starts to solve itself. It really does. But i i would be fooling myself. Carla. if an all i would be lying like oh yeah now. His policies make no difference makes a huge difference. Of course it does

Will Iran Get a Nuclear Weapon Under the Biden Administration?
"Do you think iran's gonna get nuclear weapon in this administration. I don't know that they'll get it on their watch. But they'll make real progress They're going to have to. What do you need to build a nuclear weapon. You need to make sure that you can do it in hidden places So there is no one comes after it second. You need to have the money tools and resources to build out the infrastructure to do that and then you need the political cover that gives you the space to do it by demonstrations going to provide them each of those three things and how we starved the iranian regime. They're on their last four billion dollars. In foreign exchange reserves. It took us two and a half years to put that much pressure on them at. It saddens me because the people in the gulf parts and friends that we have in israel and america will be more risk as iran continues to move close to nuclear weapon. Charlie even as they get close even when they don't have the complete cycle their capacity course increases the capacity to say that if you don't do what it is we'd like you to do israel if you don't do what you like us to to the saudis then those countries will feel under the thumb because they know arana's even even if iran is only on the cusp of getting those weapons systems and they will have much more leverage in proxies to do

"biden administration" Discussed on Marketplace with Kai Ryssdal
"I'm rozelle. It is wednesday today the very last day of june this time round. Good as always to have you along everybody. Lots of news today. Lots of news about which you will have heard lots elsewhere in the news firehose so we choose today to stay in our lane. Keep our eye on the economic ball and begin with this news that is being widely reported that the white house is working on an executive order that would tighten oversight of industries that are dominated by just a couple of really big companies. Everything is dylan draft. Of course but the gist is that. Instead of relying on antitrust enforcement as it's traditionally known federal these draft executive orders say should promote competition and everything from agriculture to healthcare by using regulation marketplace. Meghan mcardle carino gets us going without the problems. The executive order is aimed at solving arise when just two or three companies dominate a particular business. The government can us antitrust law in those situations but also it's affected by decisions of every department and the government whether it's the department transportation or health and human services or the agriculture department. All of them can make decisions that lead to more monopolies or fewer monopolies. Jason furman is an economist at harvard. Who served as chair of the council of economic advisers under president obama in two thousand sixteen just months before donald trump was elected president firm and helped craft an executive order that leveraged the power of all those industry regulators. We told every department to go out and find things in their areas that would increase competition. The agency's proposed new rules. One would have let consumers access television without a cable box. Another required airlines to be more transparent about baggage fees yet another would've protected poultry farmers but the trump administration rolled back many of those rules and now the biden administration is looking at reopening the door to new rules in a whole bunch of industries. We have problems in healthcare. We have problems food and agriculture. We have problems who telecommunications diana moss is the president of the american antitrust institute she says with biden considering this order much earlier in his term his administration stands a better chance of unraveling some of the consolidation. That's happened in those industries that is if they can get new. Rules passed the inevitable lawsuits. That could be heard by president. Trump's judicial appointees. I'm megan mccarthy carino for marketplace. Tomorrow the most powerful job on the planet loses a little piece of that power. The job of course is president of the united states. And what is being lost is something called trade promotion authority. The ability presidents have had on and off through the years depending on a congress feeling to negotiate a trade deal and send it to congress without running the risk of congress. Trying to rewrite it. Marketplace's remeasure is on the trade desk today picture. It eighteen twenty eight. John quincy adams is president and congress passes something called the tariff of abominations wasn't formally named that but that's the montrose given out troas past. Doug irwin is professor of economics. At dartmouth congress was fighting over whether tariffs should be high or low the opponents of the high tariffs can adding to the tariffs in hopes. That would become so bad. Other members of congress voted down but instead remember today. This is actually pretty good. So that's why they call it an abomination afterwards it is an example of how congress can mess up trade policy in nineteen seventy four is trade. Deals became more complex. Congress agreed to temporarily give the president authority to negotiate with other countries over trade. Mary lovely is with. The peterson institute. Basically means that once an agreement is reached by the president. Congress needs to vote it up or down. Take it or leave it. Antonio ortiz mena is with the albright group. He helped negotiate the original nafta on the mexican side without trade promotion authority. He says you would never end up concluding negotiations you would be negotiating with the executive branch and then you would be negotiating with dozens of house members and senators too. Many cooks in the kitchen. President biden is leading that power laps now mostly because while the trade deal kitchen is closed. He wants to focus on enforcement of existing trade deals before going through the ordeal of creating new ones in new york. I'm sure for marketplace on wall street today as the first half of twenty twenty one goes in the record books. More record highs. Lots of green. What me worry..
"biden administration" Discussed on GovExec Daily
"Those were on the outside so according to nelson this the new york times published last week in the united states. Nine in one hundred people have had the coronavirus compared to thirty four in one hundred for incarcerated individuals and this rate is even higher in the federal prison population As at least thirty nine percent have been infected. I've done a decent amount of reporting of the last thirteen months or so. The vast outbreaks in the federal prison system although the agency management has impo is instituted a lot of mitigation Measures due to the the close quarters in these facilities particularly for inmates on staff coming in and out and facilities not always following the directives that has led to the spread. I talk with people working in the facilities fairly regularly and they're still pretty concerned. You know over a year later in the last. I want to save five months or so. The cases have been increasing among staff more than they have inmates And they're also is I don't know the most recent update but a a couple of weeks ago. We did a story on how Less than fifty percent. I believe forty nine percent of staff members at the bp accepted vaccines from the. It's i don't know if they've gotten them in the community overall but during this hearing a lot of lawmakers are a little bit surprised and alarmed by that statistic given you know it's been such a pervasive problem. it's it's interesting with the the prisons. Jails because everyone is so tightly packed that there's no level of deserving or not deserving however you feel about people who are in prison in jails. that's always a concern of mine when when people complain. Well the prisoners the guards. It's like it doesn't really matter. Everyone needs to get it. Because they're so tightly packed you know it's not something where where we're kind of letting people within the wind because of their status You know as far as being imprisoned. It's it's a very thing in that sense. And the agency did say that they are offering them to steph inverse. I if the staff members don't accept vaccines than they offer them to inmates as they don't wanna waste doses is another issue here of course scarcity in in wasting doses and things like that and You know we're we've been seeing that since Vaccines became more available few months ago.

I guess i wanted to start off tonight kind of talking about what's going on down at the us mexico border rick. I know that this is kind of a far far deal for you. You don't really. i don't know if you don't see it or you don't feel as much as james and i do. But what are your thoughts on it. Being three removed from the border guys. It's coming right up. I thirty five okay. Flowing right in to the center of the united states in every town that they can be dropped off in every house that can hold eight or ten people. It's affecting all of us it's affecting jobs it's affecting people. It is affecting the way that commerce is done as far as groceries. Our welfare system is completely overloaded. It is unundated with families of six eight ten twelve kids in a family. We just just called last week to ask about that. And the lady that. I spoke to at the wichita department of child care. Services said that they give up they have no more resources to give out and yet they're still more coming. You read a report. Today that said in the month of february and everybody knows of february's a short month there's only twenty eight days. In february. there was a one hundred saying that came across the border in twenty eight days. One hundred thousand. That's thirty six hundred people a day streaming into the united states. Yes and we're looking at one point. Two million who are year. That's correct over the next four years million. Yeah so we owe nine line right now yes we are and then. We have our our leadership. I wonderful president and his staff who were saying that the border is not in crisis. James kind of care to comment on that you know there. There's the panel. There's a panel going on right now so let me There's a panel going on right now in dc trying to figure out what to call this thing besides a crisis There literally is. They're trying to figure out what to name this thing because they don't want to use the word prices but lynn you deploy fema which is federal emergency management. There's an emergency going on okay. In whether they want to admit it or not you know. Hey it's all trump's fault so they said this not again. I was You know the policies he had in a place that the border this mad. It's all his fault. Well you know it was also trump's fault that the air force one steps were not as thirty. They should have been because you know by trip. All going up this and they did rebuild steps and air force in a stupid about that but this the end the border thing is all his fault. I kind of beg to differ. Because you know we haven't had this problem and when you have immigrants and illegals at the border wary biden t shirts. They're wearing fighting lettuce in t shirts. helped me understand how that somebody else's fault. I don't get that that just doesn't add up to me So in the meantime they're They're shifting so today They spent somebody down there. From the parvin holiest dirty and this guy went down there and said okay. We're gonna go ahead and close close the border we're going to close out about everything's under control down here folks nothing to see here. Don't worry go ahead move well. It kinda doesn't work like that because you might be able to close the point of entry but all the points that were being built to secure the border. You're not floats. They're still coming in and they're not turning anybody away and the bringing kobe and see the united states it looks his just not just for.

Who knows what's going through. Somebody's people might be legit. Some of my be actually looking for a better opportunity but on the other hand we don't know because some of them may be terrorists. Some of you know fat folks across that border. We have no control over it right. Now and fifty percent of our drug problem in america is coming there are crystal methamphetamine and all that other good stuff is coming through the border right. They're making everything is just gonna get worse now. I wanna i wanna make a comparison here. If i can james what did you say. That number was annually. One point four million one point two at the rate is going right now. One point one five or one point two million annually that is double the amount of deaths in the united states from the pandemic. But this is an emergency. Who's reading several articles today on. What's going on down there. And you know they're talking about you know when somebody comes across the border. They're detained. They're supposed to be detained right right. While they're being detained they assess whether or not they are political refugees or whatever the case may be they have gone as far as to get hotels for these people can make a comment on that real quick.

"You're really setting a deadline that says congress has disability is going to have to go away. We're going to have to have a conversation about it. I think those are all possibilities. And i think that You might see more of that sort of hedging and cabinet of the one of as opposed to the adoption of entirely new framework for these authorisations moving forward as noted though these are just part of the problem the ams the current authorisations is just one part of the broader. Were powers discussion. There's also a discussion about how congress engages with article two uses of authority. that's the war powers resolution the limits and reporting obligations and things that congress needs put on that which is the regime does not operate now as it was envisioned in nineteen seventy three and certainly as lots of space for reform there including pretty low hanging fruit like transparency reporting obligation reforms. I think you could see happen. But there's a beer question about saying does congress need to set some rules or setup incentives for itself that when it adopts future a you a maths that it does so in a more responsible fashion that the two thousand one up arguably that sets in geographic limits temporal limits as congressman accidentally right itself out of the warming equation as many people feel. It did with the two thousand one eo math. I think they're actually interesting ways to do that. It's quite an doesn't get a lot of attention. But i think it's hopefully if there is a real app day for taking it on. That is one area where you can actually really see congress. This congress in particular set some strain works in place. That could have long term ramifications. But it's also the most ambitious taking who knows what the band with is there to do it. All right here is the actual reality as i foresee yet. You are all correct that the two thousand one a you. A math will face no amendment or repeal which are all completely wrong that the two thousand and two a. m. f. is toast because in fact congress will not have the gumption to repeal any a. m. f. and i cite as my authority for this dwight eisenhower era taiwan. Am f which is still in effect to this very day and i think the path of least resistance for congress is always not to do anything and the lift in question to get over. The hump of inaction is extremely high and as a result. It's always looks more promising at the beginning of the year than at the end of the year that anything happens especially when the cost of nothing happening is as is the case with as you. I'm f- that congress gets to complain about executive action but isn't really responsible for it at whereas if it takes action and does something it could be held responsible for the action. So color skeptic that any Any a umf will. We'll see the end of days this year. Alright so quickly to wrap. What is a big salient war powers. Issue that you're going to have your eye on over the next few months john. What is your eye on these days. Well the one thing that we haven't talked about an old chestnut that i've been long involved. An written a lot about is one tahoe closure and of course that does relate to war powers into the two thousand and one you map. There's that is. The the whole thing of the people in guantanamo is based on the two thousand and one math but aside from that is can the administration even close it The biden administration said that they would like to do so. You're going to work to do it. But this gets back again to congress Because we continue to have the prohibitions on transfers to the united states so actually closed one tahoe. Not all of these people are going to be able to be let go elsewhere. They're number. That just aren't in so in my mind. The only way to close it is to get congress to lift these restrictions and we'll have to see if the bite administration could do that. Scott what are you have. Your eye on well agree. Guantanamo's a big outstanding question. But in a way i think the most immediate one administration is going to have to deal with is actually the u. s. military presence in syria The obama administration when it left office was engaged in counter isis mission. They're very expressly With a military presence and a supporting local engage in that mission that emission has been while they're still aspects of it that are still ongoing in terms of actual isis presence on the ground certainly much smaller scale than it used to be the trump administration. Meanwhile dramatically changed our presence in syria. We have forces. There are primarily located around Helping to preserve oil wells de or and around autom- kind of a border Observation station that is is kind of removed from the hubs of isis activity. That we were in had actually has been for several years now so If you're going to go back to this kind of isis justification it's really really hard to square As a legal basis for the activity states is addressing in iraq. I think the vitamins racist already hinted they do see a counter isis mission. And maybe they're going to adjust the activities in syria to a better align with that objective. And what makes sense or otherwise. Draw the lines of explanation about why what they're doing. They're now directly relates to the counter. Isis mission as opposed to counter iran mission our counter assad mission with the trump administration hinted at many times separate from the counter. Isis thousand one. Am efficient. but i don't know yet as really really hard questions on variety of fronts legally and policy wise there and it's one that the binder restrictions doc be able to escape for long so i think that's that's a big set of questions are going to have to deal with becky. You get the last. What are you thinking about. So i agree with john that guantanamo is sort of remains a huge issue. It is sadly an issue that the american public appears to have moved on from. I think the the most significant obstacles to closing guantanamo really political once.
"biden administration" Discussed on The Lawfare Podcast
"Disagrees with that You know they could assert executive privilege. I guess for stuff. They didn't want to disclose to congress but neither those appears to happen. The administration's confirmed that they've given a report with an unclassified portion to congress and that unclassified portion is supposed to be given to the public. I suspect it's still going to happen. I think this is another example of just a growing pain And these are the fact that as much as it is you know to us from the a very easy thing to do. I think folks have worked in the executive branch as john. Belk obviously have You know we'll say and i think it's even more true. The white house arrest executive branch even doing things like updating a website requires a lot of sign off on a lot of clearance and particularly when it's not a high priority item. And you're having to get sign off from people with lots of other items to deal with. It might just take time. That's very generous interpretation and my My inclination to be generous is waning as the days tick off between the when the report is supposed to be and it hasn't been but i'm stop domestic. We'll get it in the near term. John there was a report. The other day in the new york times from charlie savage that the biden administration had at least temporarily put something in place like the old obama era. Ppg and simultaneously. Is you know once again. Renewed talk of a umf reform on these. Two issues are not directly related in the sense. That one is the you know. Question of how much restraint the administration and the white house particularly is going to exercise over the executive branch with respect to individual drone strikes whereas the other question is really a question of of what congress is going to authorize but it is They are related in the sense that they reflect a certain a certain level of discomfort with the relevance of the current statutory legal framework and kind of a question about what additional guidance should be necessary or maybe necessary and so my question is just the question of what is the prospect for in your view. reform of the the overall framework in the coming years. Is this the finally the time that we're gonna see a umf perform or or Or are we going to be tinkering around the edges with documents like the ppg and and the trump administration subsequent rollback of that. Let me take the ppg. I quickly and then move to the more interesting issue a native maps so on the again i started now right at the beginning of the bush administration and of course the first thing we did in that i did is. Nfc legal adviser was to look at all the authorities that we had including military authorities intelligence authorities covert action authorities. We'd inherited from the clinton administration and decide you know. Did we like them. We wanna keep them that. We want to change them. And you know that's what the biden administration is doing now. Is they're looking at all of the things that they've inherited So the charlie. Savage report suggests that they may be no put some limits on the loosening of restrictions on drone strikes that the trump administration may have allowed. But that's may just be a temporary pause pending this review. you know where we might all guesses. Maybe the obama administration had been a little bit too restrictive Charlie wrote a whole book out how the obama administration becomes sort of governed by laws. There's you'll maybe. The trump administration was too loose. Gone too far the other way so we may end up with sort of the. Goldilocks option of of this one. Fits just right. and you know. I do think that there's become drone fatigue. And so you know i think they've baby somewhat more restrictive on drone strikes. But you know not to on a map for form interesting thing was that jen psaki said that president biden supports replacing the existing were powers authorities. She didn't specify which ones but With a narrow and specific framework so presumably if you match that up with what. Tim kaine And others both democrats and republicans said they wanna do which was to repeal the two thousand and two nineteen ninety-one iraq eight. You a maths. Maybe there's some support for that amongst both democrats and republicans. I mean you know. Do we really need the one thousand nine hundred ninety one and two thousand to a. Um apps i'd be. I think there maybe still a few lawyers that if possibly dod or doj that say well there are wisps of of value left in the two thousand two math. But you're maybe we can get coalesce lesson surrounds repealing all of those repealing and replacing the two thousand one a. m. f. as we all know is a lot harder. I mean it ought to be easier in the you know. Almost everybody agrees that it ought to be revised but trying to get that sweet spot of where everybody can agree on. What i say is just a whole lot harder. So i guess bottom line then. I'd be a bit surprised if we can't repeal these a couple of these. Am apps but you know we just all know that. Even though you know good government dictates and i have long supported this that the two thousand and one eight. Umf ought to be revised gonna run to the bank on it right now beck. What do you think is is this the year for a umf perform. Yeah i'm i'm with john and that it might be that the two thousand and two and the ninety one of the low hanging fruit here the two thousand and one you map is only going to be really hard as a matter of substance in terms of how to revise it. But it's also really risky. And so we're gonna have to sort of be vigilant to the ways. In which all of the different legal mechanisms and interpretations that the that executive the executive branch through multiple presidential administration says now used to expand their interpretation of the two thousand one. You will continue to apply to future. Ams unless they are really carefully worded in ways that preclude that interpretation. And so that's gonna be you know what's the danger here is that we end up with a more open ended authority. Even if that's not the intention to the president the danger in repealing the two thousand two a. m. s. is that it. That doesn't resolve the question of the president's consultation with congress over the series strikes here right because the more congressional authorizations we repeal the more that puts pressure on the president to rely on of constitutional authority and so. I think that this all has to be done in conjunction with general war powers reform. Scott you get the last word on us before i pronounce the actual future. What do you think are we going to see any combination of a umf reform or more powers reform over the next couple years. I will agree with john. Belk i think that the lowest hanging fruit is obviously nineteen ninety-one in two thousand two. Ms related to iraq. We've seen bipartisan bills. With pretty substantial. Bipartisan support already introduced to that effect both in the last congress and now this congress with bipartisan support. They're not relied upon. It will have zero impact on operations except to cabin things like this. Alami strike that have proven controversial and a lot of circles. So i i think those are likely to go. I frankly would put money on that happening. This year That's a little bit ambitious bet. But i think it's a real possibility because people a lot of people want to show some sort of progress on some aspect of this front and this is just the easiest one to move on to one. Enough is going to be a lot harder. Part of the reason i think is because people keep looking for the right solution and the perfectly tailored a yeoman f and there's just a lot of disagreement about about what the right scope of us counterterrorism operations as and you know a lot of people say should be relying upon article two more but other people. And i would put myself in. This latter camp are much more concerned about creating an incentive structure to push the executive branch towards broader assertion. The article authority because of course those are potentially harder for congress to rein in caveat limit and otherwise be coequal or at least a co actor in setting the the policy in that area. What i think is a real possibility is is that a piecemeal approach to two thousand one. Everybody recognizes the has certain fundamental problems. And i think you might get consensus around certain ways to cabin those fundamental problems. So maybe congress gets together and says we're gonna cap the geographic scope of the two thousand one af whatever the executive branches recorded. they're using it those locations. That's it and if you wanna go beyond that to new geographic areas. You've got to come back to congress. They could do the same thing with which we the most influential reform setting a sunset even if it is two three four five years down the road..
"biden administration" Discussed on The Lawfare Podcast
"The question of whether or not congress should have been involved in the decision making and so i think that's the domestic law piece of this and so that's the piece that i think it is quite possible. Senator kaine may be a hawk when it comes down to it but he wants a role for his institution which is constitutionally mandated. Will all right. I wanna pose a different theory of the case of what happened here. Which is that. The administration responding as john said to a attack is also quite sensitive in the context of the current politics where mike pump heo comes out of office and basically immediately accuses them of being sort of weak on iran and you know is keen to kind of show that they are not pushovers. Even though they wanna talk to the iranians about the nuclear program and to send a message to members of congress that they're not going to get infinitely bogged down in situations like the obama administration. Did where you go to congress for permission to act in syria. Only to find that congress. Having demanded that you come doesn't give you the authorizations and so it was convenient scott for the administration to simultaneously show that congress's role is whatever it may be limited and that unlike the obama administration the biden administration is not going to get caught up in a congressional bayton switch and by the way it's also not going to get to easily outflanked on iran so to what extent are those completely non legal policy and political considerations parts of this picture. I think it's plausible. They've entered in the one thing. I'll note is i agree. I think that probably factor. Today any question about i still think there's this advanced consultation question and it does look like there was some effort to give some advanced notice to some people on the hill. Just happened did not happen to be the right people so that seems to nod towards their having been some sort of just confusion or You know growing pains as as they mysteries figuring out the right procedures having not done this before. And there's no right answer for these things. It's just past practice and rules in place and they just may not quite have gotten there yet but authorisation question i. I think it's fair i. I think it's probably equally likely on mobile. More likely though that as kind of alluded and john kind of alluded congress just more sensitive to these things or more teed in on these things than they were four years ago or eight years ago we've seen majorities in congress vote to limit president trump's You know military activities in regard to iran and yemen that those votes didn't amount anything they were vetoed and and and had questionable you know actual legal effects that actually gone into effect regardless but people are mobilized. A little bit more around this. And as i don't think we i don't think we can just attribute that to the biden administration trying to muscle around. I will say an and you know we did a podcast on this a couple of weeks ago right after the strikes focusing on the iraq policy questions. I really hope that the main reason demonstration didn't do this was just answer domestic critics. There are always going to be mr critics that are always pushing for use of force in response to any sort of threat or use of force. That's rarely a good reason to do it. At least by view it is always a batteries and to do it in iraq where u s melt uses of military force or in relation iraq. I should say use military force. Ken have really really damaging domestic consequences for the long term political sustainability of the important us military and diplomatic mission. That's happening there so you know i don't have any doubt. Domestic political factors entered into this. They always do in any decision. Like this Hope that wasn't just the driver or at least the sole driver in the sort of case because that is going to be a recipe for a less than optimal outcome in iraq. To say the least Instead i hope there were some of the strategic factory. We talked about Deterring future attracts and Making response to this that that also entered into the equation all right so let's turn to the various reports that congress are or that the administration has released. There is as a preliminary matter. The legal and policy frameworks report Which has been given to congress. But if i'm scott has still not been made public right. That is correct. As of as of a week past the being transferred to congress we still have not seen a public version as of yet Which is what's required by the statute and then there is the interim national security strategy which was released. John getting started on this. Obviously one of them. We don't know what it says Although i don't expect it will be all that different from the last one but it may be a little bit different with either of these documents is the biden administration likely to significantly move the ball or is this again sort of the area where despite the rhetoric of campaigns and the different national security talking points of the various parties this is this sort of area where the permanent interests of the united states tend to keep things on a relatively static. Course so again. I think we're gonna see more continuity here with maybe just a slightly different tone. Let me take the legal policy. Framework i goes. We don't know what it's gonna say so there's less to say about it. They're going to be ecorse commenting on what happened during the trump administration and so it's probably easier for them to be critical of what the trump administration dead but to the extent they also set forth their own legal and policy framework going forward. I don't think we're going to see a lot of change l. From the obama administration or for of general. Us policy on on usa force. That would really quite surprise me. I can't quite understand why they haven't least publicly yet. I think scott in a minute Has said that he may have heard something. But let's talk about the national security strategy which one i applaud them for getting it out so quickly they must have been working on this young during the last year during the transition usually take say administration quite to put a national security strategy together so this is an impressive piece of work really all across the board on its emphasis asus on multi-lateralism on us leadership on working with the international institutions and international rules. I really thought it was quite good on use of force depending how you look at the glass half full or half empty. It does say that force will be used as a last resort and that the us will use diplomacy first so a critic could say gee that's really new here that that we're really deep elevating us. Willingness to use force and at this is more of a democratic sort of peaceful view. I you know. I don't think that's actually maybe slight a difference in tone but let me take two things one. I think that also has to be read against this extremely significant sentence in president. Biden's were powers report that says that the united states is always prepared to use force to defend americans of other countries were unwilling or unable to do. So that's a really robust statement about use of force to actually if you compare the words and the biden national security strategy about usa force with the lecture that my boss at the time. Condoleeza rice gave the wrist and lecture at the manhattan institute where she sort of de compacted the bush administration's preemption doctrine which had been announced in its nash. Thirty strategy in which the bush administration got a lot of flack or suggesting that it was going to be rampaging around the world using force and then she she then Explained that in more detail to say. Look this is really nothing new. Anticipatory self-defence has been around for a long time. It's accepted under international law and the country's shouldn't act first without exhausting other means including diplomacy and that preemptive action does not come at the beginning of a long chain of effort so they're really saying the same thing here almost twenty years apart in saying that the us is prepared to use force to protect americans including if other countries are unwilling or unable to do so but the off to come at the end of a wom line of other actions with diplomacy first so no bottomline. Then i don't. I don't see a huge difference here And i'd be really surprised if something in the legal and policy framework suddenly tips the balance. Yes so beck is. If i were a campus left student and i heard john say that i would say see. It doesn't matter what political party you vote for. You're still getting the same old forever. War mentality whether it's democrats or republicans and bellinger has just you know pulled. The wool away from everyone saw is There's no difference between the bush administration on on this stuff. Anyway the bush administration the obama administration the trump administration and the biden administration. They're all reserving the right of preemptive war and nodding to one degree or another to the idea that you try to do other things. I would that lefty. I can't side of this is an anti-globalization protestor or a lefty college student. Would that person have a point..
"biden administration" Discussed on The Lawfare Podcast
"A so. I would assume here that either that the defense department acted very quickly for reasons that we may not know that some intelligence information that they wanted to act quickly. That's not entirely clear. Why because the the building that they strike was not actually moving or that it was essentially justice. Grew up That they notices. Were not done as broadly in his quickly. As should have been so. You know it's it's always a good idea to try to clear things in advance as much as possible. The executive branch reports does worry about leaks so not too much morning is given but hard to tell whether this was intentional or justice. Grew out scott back. Do either of you have a sense whether this was intentional. Or just a screw up. Yeah i. I've been looking at some of the reporting around this and ask around a little bit around town. What's interesting. is that if you look at. Who acknowledge getting some advance notice Although it appears to have been relatively brief like a few minutes it's actually Senator warner who of course interest the senate intelligence committee you know was want people who said he got advanced notice and it looks like in fact notice may be given potentially to the gang of eight. They usually gets advance notice of intelligence operations. That isn't entirely unprecedented in this circumstance. Because there's a strange jurisdictional breakdown around all sorts of military and quasi military intelligence activities. Where you know sensitive military operations which is one category supposed to be alerted. The armed services committee tells operation see intelligence committee is the foreign relations committees that actually have jurisdiction over the questions where paris resolution that is usually the conventional channel for something like this that seems like a more conventional sort of military action The truth is aren't really new problems like they're often have been these sorts of frictions of notification and it's not weird to happen kind of the first at bat of an administration that still getting its footing still at figuring out internal procedures and relations with the hill. But you know. I think it does point actually kind of like a bigger problem. That congress could be a little more proactive addressing. Which is that. You've got this weird Bifurcated reifer kitted jurisdictional arrangement among the relative committees. That are dealing with parts of this. That leads to these gaps information sometimes a notice. It's worth noting secretary. Lincoln is actually on the hill at has been in a skiff briefing. The senate foreign relations committee today for several hours. I think that got out recently in part on this issue and i think that's assigned sign from the administration saying oops you know. He let us give you a full breakdown. So we're on the same page and and adjusting for us. I think it is some that growing pains that that john alluded to in this but it's reflective of of a system at a broader systematic problem that that may be worth congress thinking about a little bit better ways to approach backwaters your sense of the congressional friction. So i am watching this and thinking that the biden administration may have underestimated. it's honeymoon period with congress so congress has been rallying. Even in bipartisan efforts. Around were powers reform certainly was under the last administration and i think these strikes are are seem to be giving them sort of new impetus to raise these issues again onto this one and it's long been my view that the only way to get this done is to do it. When the president is being constrained by so to speak his own people in congress so in this case democratic congress constraining a democratic president could be could be the perfect storm for actually passing more powers reform ivy not without getting into the nitty gritty of what war powers reform would look like. Why do you think. I mean given that tim. Kaine has been beating this particular drum for a long time on. The president's people are not babes in the woods on this subject out. Why do you think they might have miscalculated. The degree to which. I mean you know the he would come and do a a strike relatively quickly with very limited congressional notification. That seems like a kind of thumb in tim. Canes i to me yeah. I don't disagree with that. And in this case look if if this had looked to all like it clearly look necessary. A legal term of art and people have different views about what it means. But i don't think anyone is looking at this and thinking. Oh yeah it was so clearly necessary for the us government in colloquial sets for the us government to act in self defense in this immediate way with no time to truly consult with congress and certainly no time to get congressional authorization of days days later after we were stuck in iraq that we're going to hit a facility in syria that we can't even say in our statement. Congress or in our statement to the security council was itself a base for launching attacks. That just doesn't feel to people. I think that's nice on the outside like it was truly necessary to act with the kind of imminence that would not permit consultation with congress. John do you. Do you agree with that. Yeah he was sick. Just say i. i'm not sure i do. And that i was actually really rather surprised about the pushback that the administration got from congress on as we all know the concern amongst progressives on more powers and usa force and i've been very supportive of umf reform. And what tim kaine is said. We'll get to that in a minute but you know this was not like a bolt flu if the administration had done this just out of the blue. I would think that these concerns expressed would be legitimate but you know the the administration was was responding to an attack that killed some people and injured a us soldier in the region so there were responding again. We don't know all the intelligence as to whether they felt this would deter further attacks. But i assumed that is. The case is that they didn't want to just take this attack and do nothing that they wanted to respond so again and and i think that linked up to the point i made about what they included in the war powers report which is which i assume they thought hard about because it's new and said for the first time to say that the administration has always prepared to use force to defend americans. That's a really strong statement but the main point is you know they were responding here and i'm a bit surprised that congress jumped on them over it. Yeah i'll just jump in briefly to say that there's two different things going on here. One is the substance of standard of when it's okay to use force and the other and that's really the international law question and the others a procedural question about who gets to make that decision as a policy matter and that's the domestic law separation of powers question and so john. You may be right that this was a even putting aside the law that this was as a policy matter a legitimate and important thing to do and whether or not it was doesn't answer..
"biden administration" Discussed on The Lawfare Podcast
"Okay so john listening to beck just now. I am struck by the fact that this conversation sounds an awful lot like once that you and i were having ten years ago and i guess my question to you is. Is this a more. The more things change the more they stay the same thing or is there really is any of this movement in the legal theory actually significant so. I don't think there's much new in the legal theory. In fact. I think what's new here is that there isn't anything new that it's being stated in fact in the biden administration's inaugural were powers report. And so i wanna say two things about that one. This war powers report that reported on the strike in syria. The report was issued on february. Twenty seventh actually gives the international law basis for the strike which is not required under the war powers resolution where paris resolution only requires the president to provide the legislative or statutory basis. So the administration's gone farther to provide the international law basis. Which i think is a good thing. I think it's actually always important. And in fact we don't tell congress enough that the executive branch tries hard to comply with both domestic law and international law so i grabbed the administration. That's different from either. The obama administration the bush administration of the trump administration. So it's not like this is just going back to the obama. Administration's statements about international law. They're actually including something in war powers report. But what's really significant here and ben to your point. This just shows how far things have moved in. Twenty years is the statement that i'm going. Read it from the war powers. Report is the united states. Always stands ready to take necessary and proportionate action in self-defense. Including when as is the case here the government of the state where the threat is located is unwilling or unable to prevent the use of its territory by non-state militia groups responsible for such attacks. Now i started in the white house. In february two thousand one we all recall or most of us recall how much sturm and drowned there was about the preemption doctrine that was announced a year later in the bush administration national security strategy. But here we have in president biden's inaugural war powers report essentially a little mini national security strategy. That if the bush administration had said this twenty years ago the world's heads would have exploded here. We have the president within six weeks saying the united states is always ready to attack other countries. If you're unwilling or unable to do something about it now that's actually a a statement that of of international law that the united states has long believed in. I used to say it in. My speech is at the time it goes back and has a long history all the way back to the carolina case. But it's never been said in a war powers report before and is a pretty significant statement and certainly the first time that the unwilling or unable tests has been included. I in a war power report. I'll just end with this Sometimes personalities can be important and a friend of law fair and often warfare. Contributor ashley deeks. Who is one of the leading. Experts on the and unable test is written. The seminal article on it is now the deputy legal adviser but i do think this statement in war powers. Report is both new and significant and joe's really continuity over for administrations all right so one area where there is less. Continuity i think is on the domestic law side. Where you know. The obama administration really made a point of trying to situate everything it did in the context of the two thousand. One a i'm f. The trump administration not because it was more aggressive exactly but because it was operating in theaters in which it was much harder to apply the two thousand and one. am math fell back on the two thousand to iraq. A you a math scott. How do you understand the current domestic law posture of the biden administration. That's a great question. And gets at what i think is probably the one really notable. Take away from this forty-eight hours report that does shed light on a potential departure at least a question that the biden administration hasn't settled yet about its approach to the ams an important relates to an innovation that the trump administration pursued and another one that the very late obama administration pursued essentially we saw the obama administration potentially although it was never entirely done explicitly as far more at the very end of the by ministration and then picked up by the trump administration. Embrace a theory of how they can be interpreted that extended the authorization provided by those statutes to not only addressing the entities that are directly fall under their scope. So you know perpetrators nine eleven attracts those who are safe in harbor them under two thousand one two thousand and two. You know threats emanating from iraq but to third party entities that britain either. Us forces pursuing those missions or and this was the trump administration's most notable innovation third party allies of ours that were being threatened or attacked by third parties while they were participating with us by emission authorized by the we saw the first peak of this relates amalia in two thousand sixteen towards the end of the obama administration. There was a military engagement with some elements of al shabaab. That at the time not all shebab was seen as falling under the two thousand one m. f. although eventually they were all kind of pulled under that and there was a theory at the time. I don't think it was confirmed by the administration that will they may relying upon the statutory idea that the two thousand one f. authorizes forces to defend themselves against attacks from third parties Because there was no forty eight hours powers report. Which if they were relying on article authority they would've been obligated to file but they did not to that hints at there may be a statutory authorization there. The trump administration then extended this theory again to third party allies on the ground..
"biden administration" Discussed on The Lawfare Podcast
"Talked about whether this is the year that a umf reform might finally happen and which authorizations to use military force might finally see reform. It's the law fair podcast march twelfth war powers and the biden administration. So for those who have been focused on. Joe biden's dog. Mr potato head the royals and dr seuss scott. Bring us up to speed on why we are having a war powers conversation this week. What happened to end. Or what is the conversation that it provokes. Yeah absolutely you know over the last two weeks. We've seen a number of small events that give kind of windows into how the biden administration might be or seems to be thinking about certain fundamental questions about war powers meeting both the president's constitutional and statutory authority to use force and related international law questions kind of bundling although together under that umbrella course had airstrikes in syria against a qatar his bala and another associated. She had backed militia which were blamed our or given responsibility for a series of metaxas on us iraqi forces in different locations in iraq including a attack in that killed a us contractor And then we saw subsequent response subsequent to that airstrike Of another rocket attack in which another us contractor died of a heart attack. Apparently we also saw the administration issued interim national security strategy with lays out a vision of its foreign policy and give some hints at certain war powers questions. There were reports in the media that the biden administration upon assuming office reinstated certain restrictions on the use of military force outside of designated theaters of combat commonly associated with the ppg guidance. I was the three letter acronym given to that set of rules that govern those activities during the obama administration subsequently changed by the trump administration and then now it may be reinstated removed back in a people you direction while the processes undergoing review image more strict restrictive sort of Approach to those issues and then we saw another report due on march first. Which is the legal and policy framework these military force That is the report that you and i along with Our friends are protected. Moxie forward sued over last year to get and finally successfully got out of the trump administration. It appears to have been provided to congress on march third but A week later we actually haven't seen the public version yet. I've been asking about this a little bit of why We can get into but it certainly provides another moment of reflection on these questions about how the administration is thinking about some of the more fundamental questions of us national security policy and foreign policy. All right so let's talk about that legal framework that this describes rebecca start us off. What do we know about the legal basis for the strikes in syria and to what extent do they sound any different from the legal basis that the trump administration would have asserted for similar strikes in syria so there are different legal issues going on here under both. The international law in the domestic framework and a lot of this is pretty familiar. But there's one perhaps critical distinction between the way that trump and biden administration temperature that so first of all as a matter of international law which is in some ways the more complex question the government is claiming that it's acting in self-defence that's going to be. That's going to be sort of the typical justification for these kinds of strikes. But it's worth unpacking what that means here because under the un charter states can use forcing another state's territory if they're acting in self defense against armed attack and using not force is necessary and proportionate repelling that attack and that is how the united states is seeking to justify this use of force in syria that it's falling within that exception but of course syria strike us. We're not claiming that syria was involved in these attacks and so here in the. Us government's view is that it can respond to an attack non-state actor even in a state that didn't strike us if it's necessary to do so. And when is it necessary to do so well the. Us government's argument which is pretty controversial. Is that it's necessary to do. So if the state is unwilling or unable to address that threat so under this reasoning the argument here would be that it was necessary to strike this particular facility to stop either to stop an ongoing attacker to prevent an imminent one and this is where people have raised questions about this and we can. We can get into the weeds on this. If you're interested but people have raised questions about whether or not it was truly necessary to respond to use force against this particular facility in syria. We're of course struck in iraq. It's not even clear that we're necessarily responding with force to a facility by precisely the same core of. Us statements have been kind of vague on this. Was it going to be effective to strike this facility. Wasn't this facility actually a watching base for strikes against us forces or was it merely a facility. That happened to also be used by certain groups and of course there's now been another attack and that attack is sort of a rohrschack test for people's views on whether or not our straight was legal was whether or not it was necessary. It wasn't actually sufficient to to stop future attacks. Okay so that's the international vases and that's going to be fairly similar basis that we've seen in past administrations on the domestic side. This is where things get a little interesting. The biden administration claiming authority based on constitutional power alone not interesting but rather different than the last administration. So they are making an affirmative choice not to try to rely. On somehow squeezing this these acts into prior congressional authorizations particularly the two thousand one or two thousand eighteen at mess which the last administration suggested. It was relying upon and so presumably. They are basing this theory. Now on the longstanding alcee theory that the president can use force as long as it's below a certain threshold as long as it's i in the national interest which is a fairly low bar at this point when the president's claiming self defense and second not war in the constitutional sense needs to be not war in the constitutional sense because of course the constitution gives congress not the president the power to declare war..

"I think that republicans need to do what the democrats have done. And that's to follow through in other words. they're going to follow through on impeachment. We need to follow through on an audit of the votes. Why is everybody talking about four years from now. I live in california. Democrats have owned the state for god knows how long we're unsuccessfully trying to put through a newsom recall. Newsom is pelosi's nephew. Everybody knows what's going on. The state is ruined. Our schools are ruined. Our streets are ruined. Our communities The immigration that the sanctuary cities all of this crap and the republicans. Don't do anything as a matter of fact Why would we even say word one about anything wrong that the republicans do with all of the cheating. That's gone on. Why are we not auditing these boats. Why is this stopping. Why are we not following through. Don't they owed that. Who voted in this election. The republican to follow through on the audit shooting that aside. And they just wanna make good. And mcconnell wants listened. They try ted cruz and in fairness to ted cruz and josh hawley. And they've been so demonized by finally people speaking out on their behalf even pilot even senator feinstein. Did it's ridiculous. They were asking for a ten day audit by the way liberal democrats had asked for impasse election so putting all that aside. It's again another effort to silence anybody that they disagree with. Look there's there's no way that looked like republican establishment types. Most of them. There's a few that are stupid but most of them are not gonna be stupid and in other words they're going to look at their own self preservation and own self interest in this and that will cause them to follow the constitution because it's unconstitutional to impeach a former president. He's not in office and we've laid out that case over and over again and it's going to be a fairly quick trial and there will be an acquittal at the end of it and then Their attempt to permanently cancelled donald trump. And take away any hope he would have to run in the future should he. So desire That that threats going to be removed. It'll be done in a few weeks. So is my prediction beginning to see democrats now getting more afraid of this as well and they know oh. I thought you were the unity party. Oh i thought you were focused on solving problems. Oh i i mean it just writes itself and there are many senate republicans up in two years. Then gonna wanna primary from somebody That supports donald trump so I think they understand some of overplayed their hand even with their rhetoric..

"I need a a basic hannity sanity. Check As maxine waters. Who has become now. Our moral teachers demonstrated a four a shortly after president trump was inaugurated. We should be starting to chant impeach forty six right now correct. I mean am i wrong. I mean well. If we're going to apply the same standards. They did with ukraine. Joe would've already been impeached as of yesterday. They will use their standards. And i'm not even calling for it The mob isn't going to let it happen. Republicans don't have the power to let it happen and you know what we have serious problems at this point You know it's just as they wasted four years of this country with rancor and bitterness and hatred and They don't even see it. So if you say and take a page impeach forty six impeach forty six so i think they're going to be significant areas that will point out of of glaring hypocrisy and everything. They said that they would apply every standard they apply to trump did not going to apply to biden. I can assure you that. Well thank you sean. I wanted a sanity check. Because i was thinking of getting a wig. Trying to look like her and just start to Go out on the side of the street and same pizza forty season. It's sort of like violent rhetoric of the left that we've been playing on my. I'm telling you don't. That's not who we are. It's just not. We're not the anarchists. We don't believe we respect law enforcement. We believe in law and order we believe in our constitution you know and i i mean it's just it's i. Nobody needs to go there. You know the ninety nine percent at the rally were not insurrectionists. You're going to peacefully patriotically march to the capital. So your voices will be heard but the president said we can play kamla. Show maxine. Nancy chuck and pretty much every democrat and they would be take their words as given. Oh sounds like. They're inciting violence insurrection. Well those standards ever be applied to them. No because that's the environment we live the media mob. If we treated joe biden away. They treated trump with lies conspiracy theories one hoax after another. I mean yeah. I mean we we could cause i just. I don't have that ability to them. They think we're them but we're not they have a caricature that they paint of us. That is inaccurate. So let you're gonna be okay. Scott let not your heart be troubled. Yes yes yes.

"To stay in this country and put on a path citizenship. I'm gonna from day one We're gonna have a fundamental gonna send to the United states congress a A an immigration plan to provide a pathway legalization for eleven million documented people on day one to send legislation immigration reform to the congress to provide a roadmap to citizen from eleven million undocumented immigrants. And so much that make up so much of our communities and make us so strong should someone who is here without documents and that is his only offense. Should that person be deported. That person should not be the focus of deportation. We should fundamentally change the way we deal with our exactly. Would you detained immigrants. If at all in a biden administration the way we did. When we reform the system with dhaka i would not retain them behind bars. Just like i've argued all along any woman who crosses the border here and being beaten by her husband but she's undocumented. She cannot be deported because she reports there are certain things you can not deport undocumented alien four an undocumented person for and that would be one of them what changes would you bring to isis agency. I would hold ice agents accountable. If in fact they stepped over my executive orders which is no arrest of anyone outside of their school culture. Change the culture by saying you're going to get fired. You're fired if in fact you do that. You only arrest for the purpose of dealing with a felony. That's committed and i don't count drunk driving as a felony should undocumented. Immigrants also be able to get subsidized healthcare if they are working in the united states of america and they are paying taxes. They should have access to healthcare. They should have access to what everybody else has. access to. We are a nation of immigrants and one of the reasons why we are so powerful. And we've been so successful is because we're a nation of immigrants and the way we're acting both domestically and internationally is is a crying. Shame is not who we are. Guess what through the reason. Why the legal as well as undocumented and the reason why our society is functioning the reason why our economy is growing. We don't talk about that. We stand up. Act like it's a burden it is not a burden it's a gift. All right that's joe biden over the years joining us now laura rees. She's a senior research fellow homeland security heritage foundation.

We'll get rid of the muslim travel ban. That never was a muslim travel ban. Those a band for countries and a vetting process for people from countries that have known ties to radical extremists certain countries that are predominantly muslim. Were not on the list. Because they don't have that problem anyway. She joins us. Also john daniel davidson senior fellow for the texas public policy foundation and political editor for the federalists.

"Is gonna get sued by andrew. Cuomo this to get interesting anyway. A lot of news to get to today. I thought that we're going to see an end to the there's going to be peace and prosperity By the way cuomo apparently ditch the inaugural to defend albany from massive pro-trump protests. Problem was only one person showed up protesting one anyway. There's why so many predictions is going to be an explosion of right wing violence on inauguration. Day mid never happened. There was no explosion but there was Let's see Antiques apparently according to some reports. We haven't confirmed that but leftists. Let's put it that way once again. They're back at it and denver portland and seattle media prediction. So it's gonna be trump supporters violence well because they want to run with their narrative that the vast majority of people that went to washington for the rally on january six were insurrectionist incited by president trump. That said you'll many of you will now peacefully and patriotically march to the capital to let your voices be heard. Of course we discovered after the snap yet. The problem is that Yeah only a tiny percentage of people from the rally actually involved themselves in this which was dumb but there were people that we now know. There were warnings and we had We had intelligence that showed that people were planning and plotting and scheming and they didn't do anything and all the requests for reinforcements national guard etc that you'd normally have one hundreds of thousands of people that you know in advance are coming to washington. Dc they didn't do a single thing which is unbelievable anyway. Now we're watching last night. They have leftist pro protesters. What are they protesting now. Anyway in the streets of West coast cities seattle property damage hurled objects cars protesters demonstrating against biden law enforcement in nice. He just opened the borders and gave an invitation from the world. And there's no more vetting of people that come from countries with radical radical ties and. I doubt there's going to be any mask mandate and social distancing or covid testing of anybody that crosses the border illegally which they're now encouraging anyway. A bunch of people arrested in portland and elsewhere charged with rioting possession of destructive devices and reckless burke. Why didn't hear any of that. In any of the mob's fawning coverage of all things biden yesterday Very predictable isn't it anyway. So let's i want to go to this one issue. I want to spend a little bit of time on this talk to a lot of people. 'specially constitutional lawyers overwhelming concensus about this latest shift. Show my sources in washington say. It's dead on arrival democrats. No it's dead on arrival this impeachment trial which on the latest one against donald trump But with that said it's still going to be set over at some point from the house. And i'm gonna get a pretty good idea of where this is headed. And that is republicans are are are are going to. At least in this instance listen to the constitution.

"Discussing the first few days of the biden presidency. We're also joined now by democratic representative. Adam schiff from california. He represents california's twenty eighth district. Which is in los angeles county. And he's the chair of the house. Intelligence committee representative schiff. Welcome thank you. It's great to be with you representative shift. You and your colleagues in. The house voted to impeach president trump twice during his term in office. How are you responding to members of the gop who argue. Those impeachment are why they don't need to cooperate with biden now they. They claim that in america's civility wars democrats. Were the first to say. Your president is illegitimate. You know a lot of the republicans who are making that argument right now or republicans. Who after the attempted insurrection. We're back on the house floor. Still seeking to overturn the election. So they don't have much standing when it comes to calls for unity but look. I think the vice-president struck exactly the right note in his speech. Yesterday was very positive. Affirming uplifting speech That i think reminded americans of their better angels and the need to move forward At the same time. I think there's a recognition that you can't have reconciliation without accountability with justice without a an accounting for what took place We're going to do both. And i think we can do both And i think the new administration is off to a phenomenal. Start both in in setting the tone. But also in establishing a new approach to handling the pandemic reversing some of the most malignant policies reas ministration at moving the country forward when we spoke a bit about the economic toll. The pandemic is taking on people. Win can americans expect a third covert relief bill. Well this is among the highest priorities for congress and for the administration and the by ministration has proposed at one point nine trillion dollar Relief package We all understood when we took up the last Package that that was going to be down payment on what would be necessary to get us through the end of this to get us to the point where the nation as well vaccinated and to the point of healing when people are are back in and the economy is moving forward I would hope that we can come together. This will be a. I really true. Test of the The new president's ability to get a deal with republicans As you were just pointing out you couldn't have narrower margins not just in the senate but the house has a historically narrow margin of just a few seats so we are going to have to work together on this and if there's anything that should compel us to do so it's the crisis we're in with four hundred thousand loss. American lives with You know still much of the dark winter ahead of us and millions of families. That are struggling. So what's in this package will help Lots and lots of american families and And we've got a push to make it happen asap. Part of these relief measures include fiction moratoriums and rent relief this aid. That dried up recently left a lot of people without secure housing. And it's a huge problem everywhere but especially in your seat of california and your home county. La county this. Congress have a plan to ensure people keep their homes. Well there's a a very significant part of this rescue package with exactly that that would extend the moratorium on evictions And on foreclosures from march to september I think under any realistic expectation people are going need the help until september But those those rent payments are really important to that. Is that the help that goes directly out to renters to help them pay. The rent is really important because otherwise you have this Cascading set of negative circumstances. Where yes. A renter can stay in their home without paying rent. But then the owner of that unit doesn't have the money to pay their mortgage and and you have just one domino after the next if we can help the renter's pay their rent Through these Subsidies from the federal government. That is a much better approach. I think than Than than seeing this cascading set of collapses when the moratorium comes to an end so the the relief is going to need to continue for some time We're gonna need to look at also in this rescue package held for the homeless to try to make sure that people can get a roof over their head. That don't have already. This was a crisis even before the pandemic obviously a so. There are a lot of efforts being directed to this problem. Which as you point out is Most acute in places like los angeles with a very high cost of living with a very very high cost of housing. We got this email from well. Actually it was a message and instagram from drawn. Hope who says i'm so worried. The administration will go soft on the instigators of domestic terrorism in public. Office you've already begun investigating the intelligence failures surrounding the attack on the capital. Have you uncovered anything new. It's really too early. I think for us to draw conclusions on about where the largest area failure was. Was this problem. In our law enforcement and domestic violence prevention agencies not gathering the intelligence they needed or did the gathered without shared. Or did they share it but it wasn't acted upon or is it some combination of all of these things How broad is the responsibility. How complicit were members of congress. I in inciting insurrection. Were members involved in helping insurrectionists conduct surveillance sub before a january sixth. These questions are still largely unanswered. I've had already Any number of briefings and got written materials. And i still don't have a clear sense of the answers. And and frankly i wouldn't expect to with this point You this you can tell you how to major failure but In terms of really outlining how it took place and how it needs be prevented a we're just at the very beginning stage of our investigation But there's gonna be a full accountability. I don't think anyone has a illusion about the need to hold those responsible to account Both in terms of anyone who participated in that failed direction. Insurrection but also Anyone that was aiding and abetting them So we are going to press forward with with all haste and and diligence more broadly though what about the threat of domestic terrorism specifically white supremacists and far right extremism this has been a rising threat for years now and the capital assault really threw it out into the open. What steps are you taking to root out these extremist groups. You know. that's a great question Four years now on the intelligence committee we have been pressing our law enforcement agencies and the department of homeland security to take this threat. More seriously a you know To devote more resources to to study and analyze it And make sure that we weren't avoiding any of that because it was politically fraught because some of these people were the president's supporters And it was politically sensitive to be investigating a domestic terrorist groups or white nationalist groups because they were voicing support president And we're gonna have to make sure that that gets without any political interference for a long time. It's been recognized by the fbi by christopher ray that the number one on terrace country faces is not from foreign terrorists. Al qaeda and isis remain a grave threat but the predominant threat right now is from domestic violent extremists like we saw january six so practically speaking. What does it mean to address the mean. What it means is is the fbi devoting the people power to that issue. The resources to that issue is department of homeland security doing the same. Are they doing the analysis that they should or are they lumping together various kinds of extremists to essentially Distract from the the gravity of the problem..

"You know he said that. He stands by the abc test in california. He said he's a supporter of five And all these things taken together You know lead us to place where we really watch the department of labor and whoever whatever union friendly Labor secretary he puts in there is probably going to make this a priority because it's a priority in the country. So i take it from what you've heard No one with the power to do anything at the federal level is too phased by the vote in california. A uber in effect got itself out of a b five through a proposition. And i suppose on you could describe that in in one of two ways you could say. Well that's a very blue state and maybe that's a warning or you could say well. Uber did spend a massive amount of money on advertising there. And i take it that the folks you're talking to are are pretty settled that it's the latter is the way to view it. Yeah i mean i think. That's that's definitely true. I it's kind of interesting because i've had conversations with like dig work lobbyists you know sorta posing this question. Are you afraid of a biden administration like do you do really believe that that is that is that is labor department are going to do the thing that you spent so much money to avoid And you know. I think the answer is yes but the answer is also that they have some that. There is some optimism about congress in There's actually been a lot of like interesting. Bipartisanship among moderates in both parties on the issue of gig work and whether we need to carve out that third way that california's discussing right now whether may be there is room for reform to get through even divided congress on gig work right now. I'm very skeptical that that could happen. But it seems like that's probably where lobbyists are going to put their energy because you know it seems like this stuff with the do l. b.'s. Sort of like sentenced stone or It seems pretty clear that that's the direction they're heading. We'll the final topic. I was hoping to touch on. And it's it's taking up the rear here but quite possibly the most important topic. We're going to discuss long-term is artificial intelligence. You wrote a very interesting piece about the bipartisan resolution. Put forth by. Representatives will hurt and robin kelly on Basically trying to put forth the national strategy on a could you tell us about the resolution and what it status so this resolution has been a longtime in the making like will heard and robin. Kelly have been working with the bipartisan policy center. For years at this point on research and you know looking into ways that democrats and republicans can come together to agree. We need to put significant money into the future of artificial intelligence. You know like we know in china. There's a pretty unified strategy to you. Know to spend enormous sums of money and to advance their a innovation and in the us. You know it's just more fragmented in in it's it's more bottom up than top down and so this resolution Which is so hard fought is really just that it's a resolution but it's a framework that the next congress can take up you know. There are six committees that have jurisdiction over various parts of Ai policy which is kind of a ridiculous situation if you know how congress works and to this resolution helps establish what piece of the puzzle. Each of those committees could work on what what are some starting places for Bipartisan policy. on a i you know..
