"Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says that border patrol custody of young migrants has declined dramatically. NPR's Claudia Chrysalis reports that secretary My Orcas attributes that to changes made by the Biden administration secretary. My Orkest told the Senate Homeland Security Committee that fewer than 500 young migrants were in Border patrol custody this week, compared to nearly 6000 in late March. The challenge is not behind us. The results are dramatic. But Ohio GOP Senator Rob Portman noted the unaccompanied minors have been moved to health and human services facilities.

My Yorkis conceded that there is much more work to be done. Claude agree

"Work done do the moral and national shame of the previous administration that literally not figure, Lee ripped Children from the arms of their families, their mothers and fathers of the border. He also reversed remain in Mexico and paused wall construction. Since he took office, there's been an unprecedented wave of Central American migrants arriving at the border, he rejoined the Paris climate Accord and the World Health Organization. He's directed the Justice Department to look at ways to ban ghost guns and announced that troops will be withdrawn from Afghanistan on September 11th of this year. Just this week, he signed an order making the minimum wage $15 an hour for federal contract workers, and he's revoked the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline. And while he's receiving high praise from Democrats, not so from the GOP, I'm going to act. I'm gonna act fast. I'd like to be. I'd like to be doing it with the support of Republicans. I've met with Republicans. There's some really fine. People want to get something done. But they're just not willing to go. As far as I think we have to go. It is just too far in many respects for many Republicans. Well, you know that the inauguration it was all about unity. Bring the country together that we're too divided and I have everything else. He is extremely partisan in this 1st 100 days. Michael McCaul is a congressman representing the 10th District of Texas, including The executive orders that you're talking about the Keystone Pipeline. Right out of box, hurting my state and energy state. The welders. You know the blue collar workers that really relying on that and then I think the biggest mistake I seen And I don't border my entire professional careers of federal prosecutor chairman of the Homeland Security Committee. Now we're the Foreign Affairs Committee isn't for reversing You know these asylum cooperation agreements and remain in Mexico policy, which is really created a humanitarian crisis on the border. You know, down there many times I just have never seen it this bad. You know, Congressman as Central America, Central Americans arrive by the thousands to our border in we know in March, nearly 19,000 kids alone were apprehended in that month. I imagine you think you should talk about the border tonight. Do you think he will say anything different than what he said at his first press conference as president about the border that would hope he would. I'm not even sure it's only bring it up. I mean, there's the reason they don't want to go down there. Is because they know the ostrich. You are so bad. They know they know it's a humanitarian crisis and mild just knows Bill's secretary of Homeland Security. I just don't think they want the objects and certainly if it's brought up in all You know, I'm sure it's second be a driving team of joint session speech. They know this is where the president's point. The lowest on this issue, more than any other issue out there, And so I personally don't think you have spent a lot of time on it, and he should, because I think it's It is a crisis you as you noted, you formerly chaired the Homeland Security Committee. And before becoming a member of Congress, you were chief of counterterrorism and national security of the U. S attorney's office in West Texas. Where do you help? The Biden administration focuses when it comes to foreign policy We've seen plans about like withdrawing troops from Afghanistan, renewed talks on the Iran deal. And in every speech. I think I've heard the president give Thus far. He talks about China and this sort of fierce competition. We're now in. Have been in. How do you feel about the focus thus far when it comes to foreign policy and where it needs to go? Well, he's engaging with our allies. And I agree with that. I I worry about Afghanistan being You know, Look, it's gone on for a long time. My biggest concern is how can we identify threats in country and respond to those threats to the homeland? I predict it when we went trough. In September. The Taliban el coyote, probably, you know, overrun and take over that country, and my biggest concern is how can we You know, responded threats in real time. Yeah, they could impact our allies or the homeland itself. No, don't back to pre 9 11 state. I'm worried about Iran to because They are getting closer to bomb. They seem so eager to get involved in this back into the JCP away. Um, you know, just like John Kerry. I think one of just a deal. Not a good deal of Netanyahu would talk about. Um, you know, right now, Ron. And very close to their 60% Richmond within months could be it 90%. They have short range missiles and Israel in the Saudi peninsula are really in the crosshairs here. Wait. They aren't 60% already. I mean, I remember hearing And I think it was An Iranian officials saying that we're not going to be bullied. If we want to get to 60%. We will. But you're saying they they already have reached that point. We'll be I told has announced their 60% now. Whether that have verifiable that is, you know there are assessments and could be lower than that. But But we do know that they're moving, you know, with remarkable speed right now in the reversion process and if they are getting close to 60 of the Ayatollah says You're talking about about a four month break out to get the 90%. And then about a year time to develop a nuclear warhead to attach to the short range missile. So if we can negotiate and look, I want the different facets succeed. We don't want to fail because we don't want to go to war. One thing run has under standard clearly is a night shapes of America, and I think I speak for the Democrats on this one as well. I'm not gonna sit back idly and allow a nuclear Iran to exist in one way or another. America will respond to that. Speaking of John Kerry, some are calling for John Kerry to resign. He's currently serving as a climate envoy underneath. Secretary Pompeo in 2018 called Kerry's meetings, private meetings with Zarif at the time on seemly and unprecedented and carry himself at the time admitted in a radio show in 2018 that he had met with his grief. Three or four times. Well, I find these allegations very disturbing. We will be looking into these allegations. I think there should be an investigation. I think Mr carrying has to come out more strongly in his defense on on this, I think Um Yeah, I signed a document that requires Meteo. We'll get briefed on classified information I spent certainly don't give it to my foreign adversary. That is a huge violation of law. Um, is if which were true should be prosecuted. But I think when you don't fax, you know, in front of us I don't know if we we have all but the one thing just doesn't bother me here. Point about what pump As, says white. He Maintaining this relationship. You know, with the former prime, you know. Foreign Minister of Iran. Not exactly an ally of the United States. It's one thing like you know, Great Britain or France, you know that said to carry on a relationship and maintain a relationship. The foreign minister of Major adversary, he said in his own defense, like Look, I shared all the information that I got with Pompeo..

Senate begins Biden Cabinet confirmation hearings
"Just a few hours. Until joe biden takes the oath of office and becomes the forty six president of the united states. five of his most high profile cabinet nominees five of them got their senate confirmation hearings today. Secretary of state nominee antony blinken appeared before the foreign relations committee armed services committee question. Defense secretary nominee. Lloyd austin janet yellen who's biden's nominee for treasury secretary. She had her hearing before the finance committee. Also hearing for biden's pick to head homeland security alejandro may orcas and the director of national intelligence nominee of real hanes. Got her hearing as well five. Really big ones right. I mean state defense treasury homeland security intelligence five of them all at once today. We never have this many nominees for huge cabinet positions all having their confirmation hearings all on the same day. That's because in years past when a new administration was on its way in the senate would hold hearings for new cabinet secretaries over a period of days many days in advance of the inauguration so the new president could have at least some of his cabinet in place when he actually took office. Not this time. Though this time we got all these hearings all at once. Literally the day before the inauguration because the republican controlled senate just chose not to get their act together to move on. Move on biden's nominations before now they had some very important recesses. Take among other things i swear. The senate didn't even come back from their latest vacation until today. Yeah no rush when you haven't held confirmation hearings for anyone before today feel free to take a few more days off so biden is having to take off with an empty cabinet with literally. No cabinet secretaries confirmed including in critical national security positions which is totally unprecedented. on president. obama took office in two thousand nine seven of his cabinet. Secretaries were confirmed. By the end of inauguration day. many of president trump's cabinet picks face more opposition in the senate but even he took office with his defense secretary in his homeland security secretary in place. This time though. Barring some kind of senate miracle joe biden will have no one in. His entire cabinet confirmed on his first day including in the major national security positions and bad news. Good news on that front. The bad news is the obvious. The bad news is that that means president biden is going to start with a whole bunch of acting temporary. Fill in cabinet secretaries instead of full blown senate confirmed cabinet secretaries of his choosing which will just make it that much harder for the new president to hit the ground running and that's true in terms of policy matters that's also true in terms of national security. It's worrying for all the obvious reasons. That's the bad news but the good news is that the trump administration has been so profoundly dysfunctional for four whole years that we're actually starting used to that now. We're actually sort of used to having only acting stand in non-confirmed secretaries at all the most important jobs in the cabin and that's not something that the republican controlled senate screwed up for trump despite him doing it the right way. That's just the way he ran the government. I mean thanks to republican senator josh hawley slowing down the process and the homeland security committee. Joe biden is going to have to settle for an acting homeland security secretary for at least a few days but the united states has already had nothing but the homeland security secretaries for like two years under donald trump the longest they can see in the presidential cabinet ever because donald trump could just never get it together to have real nominees who got really confirmed by the senate and who held their job with all the attendant powers so maybe four years and terrible governance. Maybe we are better at running government poorly in that way there was would have been before this four year experiment and terrible governance. That is now coming to a clicks.

Massive U.S. hack one of 'greatest intelligence failures of modern times'
"We're following breaking news on the largest hack on the us government by a foreign adversary ever and their silence from the president. Politico was first reported. Nuclear weapons agency was reached a cyber attack. Russia is believed to have targeted multiple. Us government agencies including the pentagon security and treasury as well experts are saying the hack started six to nine months ago and the trump administration had no idea. It was happening the entire time. The new york times calling it among the greatest intelligence failures in modern times the greatest intelligence failures in modern times. Joining me now is center. Gary peters ranking member on the senate homeland. Security committee senator. Peter's thanks for joining us on this this is astounding to say the least. I have to say when this news broke over the weekend. It was shocking. The first question on my mouth was classified information they get a hold of. And then wow who knew it. Blew up to nine months of basically hacking our government systems. and now. we're learning this breaking news at a politico. The energy department national nuclear security administration have evidence that hackers accessed to their networks as part of an extensive espionage. What are you know about this that you can share a well. What i can say is that we still have to learn a lot more but to to your opening comments It's shocking. This is incredibly disturbing to have such a sophisticated breach that impacted so much of the federal government. The fact that they could get into these systems and be there for a long period of time It's gonna take some time to get a sense of what What is the extent of the what the information did they gather a. What was their intent that we have to get to the bottom of this and we have to do it too quickly because of Of what is at stake here. I know that there's different levels of classification of documents when it comes to the government Do we have any idea what level of classification to reach the we. I don't want to comment on that and we're still learning more about that. This is still this is again. This is a very sophisticated breach. This is the type of breach where cyber professionals Wake up in the middle of the night and are very worried. I can tell you that and we just have to get a better sense of exactly what happened. In part of part of the the action right now is so which is part of the department of homeland security which i am the ranking member of the committee that oversees They've got a directive out now to try to to stop any other attacks on the system so it's important for all of the government agencies to engaged in those activities and then basically them we have to set our threat hunters out. These are teams that will go out and get into these systems to get a sense If they're still a bad guys in there and get them out and then try to assess exactly what they did. So that's that's the process. That's going on right now on the being undertaken in an aggressive fashion. I mean at this point though. Do they even know what they're looking for. Considering the fact that these hackers were able to find a loophole in breach government documents How do they stop something. That they don't even know what they're looking for what it looks like well. It was discovered so they know what it looks like. They do have a directive To stop access bet which they're hoping that implements. So so that's being done and then we do the threat hunting. So we there. That's i was discovered And that once you know it's there then you've gotta look for it in other places. Which is what's happening right now. That it is fairly widespread does throughout the end. Perhaps not just federal government. We're also looking at the independent or private companies as well. This could be in the private sector. This was clearly a massive effort. It was very well orchestrated heavily resource and a true wakeup call do the vulnerabilities we have on our systems. We have to do a whole lot more to protect the systems. And i'll just say that in addition to protecting systems as important as that is we also have to have offensive capability and we have to punish folks who are engaged in this activity and once we know for sure who's behind it We need to let these folks know that this will not be tolerated and there will be consequences.
U.S. cybersecurity agency warns of "grave" threat from massive hack
"Today about the the recently recently discovered discovered hack hack into into the the U. U. S S government. government. It It has has impacted impacted multiple multiple departments, departments, including including the the Pentagon, Pentagon, Homeland Homeland Security Security and and the the National National Institutes Institutes of of Health. Health. The The U. S Cyber Security Agency says today. The hack poses what it calls a grave threat to all levels of government and even the private sector amid this period of presidential transition, and, of course, the ongoing pandemic. Let's learn more with w T o p national security correspondent J. J Green How you JJ. There's word today that a string of very serious investigations are getting underway. What are these investigations and what are they looking for? Yeah. Hi, Sean and Hillary. How are you Today? There are several congressional investigations one from the Homeland Security Committee. The oversight committee is investigating. The FBI is investigating this incoming president Joe Biden has set up a team on this. All of the agencies that were impacted have been setting up investigations into this. So what are they looking for? They're trying to figure out where they're started when it started. Who knew what What was done where it stands now, in the key questions right now is who did it and how they managed to get into US systems. This is a massive, massively important situation. Right now. It's hard is Tom Bossert, the former homeland security adviser for president, Trump says It's hard to overstate this is the significance of this situation. Well, okay, it's hard to overstate it. So characterized just how damaging these breaches are. Several prominent experts have said this is one or among the greatest intelligence failures in modern times, and that includes 9 11. This is an incredibly dangerous situation and why? Because it's still underway. This cyber attack is still happening. The Attackers got into the systems of more than a half dozen agencies, and that number is sure to go up. Nine months ago, perhaps, and we just found out about it nine days ago, and if it hadn't been for fire I coming forward. Perhaps we may not know about it now. So this is where we are with that. Change, eh? Why did it take so long for the government or for the company for that matter to figure this out, people that launched this and it's believed to be the SPR, the Russian equivalent of the CIA were clever enough to get around that multibillion dollar system called Einstein that the U. S. Has to prevent or at least to detect. Situations and in organizations and efforts like this, they were able to craft it so that basically they slipped in. We didn't know about it. And a part of the reason for that is all of that. This is all of the disinformation. All of the chaos that's been going on in the country regarding covert 19 and the election and other things. We were focused on all of those other things, and this is believed to be how they managed to slip in final 30. Seconds here what is being done right now, to contain all this. There's a big effort underway. The solar Wenzel Ryan software, which was the vehicle through which this malware got into all of these systems, was ordered shut down on Monday, sister says. It's a grave situation. It's going to take a long time to fix and they say It's not going to be easy at all, because a part of it is figuring out where the end of this thing is stopping it before they can start to apply. The bandage is Hey, JJ. Thanks so

Yes I really wanted to get a feel as to how much students really knew about planned parenthood because as we all know these younger generation, they really like to support planned parenthood the way I phrased it. I I started off by asking if they support the cancel culture movement. So removing racist statues monuments in organizations that may have racist past and a lot of people said that they did. So you know that gave me a little bit of POWs like, okay. Maybe these students will be able to cancel Margaret Sanger for what she said as. The founder of planned parenthood, but that was not the case. So I told them to quote we do not want to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population that's been reported on Multiple Times that she said that and before he been telling them who said that they all agreed it was racist ause eating the person shouldn't be the founder of organization. But then when I told them, it was Margaret Sanger they automatically switched their viewpoint. There were still willing to support her They still thought that planned parenthood was an inclusive organization Stood for lives I had one girl told me that planned parenthood stands for lives which I thought was very ironic. It isn't inclusive organization they will aboard any baby. So I'm very very confused by that. So you gave them the quote did you ask them who they thought said it before you told them. I did I actually asked one girl and she said, she thought President Trump's the coach said she wouldn't be surprised if president trump said it because he was racist on again I asked her do you have any quotes of how she's out how president trump is racist? said, it's Margaret Sanger every single person said well I guess it's okay. Yeah I mean they're surprised. So a lot of students didn't really know about the quote but that at the end of the day it should we be funny an organization that their founders said this quote and they all said Yes would still support the organization while get to campus from Dot Org. NO CHECK OUT THAT VIDEO I've done by affiliate Jacobson that's amazing to me that people will. What's the word contorted, their bodies, the contorted their minds just to say well, but it's Biden. So I gotta like it. It's Hillary I gotta like it. It's planned parenthood I gotta like it. startles me other than the fact that they just didn't say Oh my God that traces she's racist horrible person they still the one person thought it stood for lives. Weight is planned parenthood stand for lives. I also, and she said that she had a great. Experience With planned, parenthood obviously didn't ask about their personal experience but you know she did say that they stood for lives not an inclusive or. On an even when I presented them with this statistic that the abortion rate for black woman is five times higher than that of white woman. So not only is it racist in their history, but the ongoing reality of planned parenthood is racist and what they perform in what they do for women. They so willing to accept that it was a racist organization from Caves Reform Dot Org. It's affiliate. Jacobson. Make sure you check it all the great articles over there. Let's get to another one. I. Saw this this was on a zoom call right what happens as you've got professors that even high school teachers and Middle School Teachers Elementary School teachers all sort of conducting class where it can be recorded where it can be seen where we actually now are inside the class and we know what garbage spewing or the good job that they're doing conversely. So what did this professor say in which the result? Yeah so this was a professor Marshall University in West Virginia and she was caught on tape saying that she hopes that trump supporters died before the election. Now, this is a biology professor at least was because thankfully the school took action and she's actually being put on administrative leave and they're conducting investigation. But in the first place, I'm not a science major on studying journalism. So you know I'm not in science class by did take biology in high school and if I, remember correctly I don't really remember learning anything about. Politics or elections in a biology class. So my first question is why was even being brought up in the first place? I'm an advocate for I for the first. Amendment for a right to freedom of speech. But this crosses the line I mean wishing death upon a group of people just because you know they support a candidate that may that you may not agree with it just drawing the line at sending a horrible message, our students in universities somebody who should be getting paid by taxpayers dollars was this a public university? I believe. So yes and know students are paying thousands of dollars each year to go to these universities and we're trusting these professors to give us higher education. This is the kind of education were receiving. I'm honestly not surprised that students are coming out more liberal when he graduate college in before it is biology affiliate because if people die, that's their body and that's science hasn't it? I don't know. What I do it is affiliate. Jacobson going follow her on twitter at affiliate opiate e e. Jacobson, and she's also a campus reform dot org. Let's talk about this the soaring crime and I'm sorry the students want to do to give us. So they want to basically abolished campus police department and they sent seven days. I guess. So that's what they believe. They said seven days you banging drums, shining flashlights at their robos. About you I barely have time to go to the grocery store in a week. So I don't know where these students are finding time to protest for seven days straight where they're protesting the campus fleece. Their listed demands include you know full disclosure of the police's budget then cutting up by fifty percent, and then with the money that is cut their budget, they actually want to donate that to minorities in studies at the university and they want to abolish the Campus Police.

"Revenue Stations across the Land Joepags, Dot Com facebook, twitter, instagram email. It's all right there plus the live video feed. It's the JOE PAGS show. Glad to have you along for the ride. Really glad to have this guy back. It's the former da of bear county Texas. Be Say Arnold. Say Belk Sards Bear, and if we're San Antonio Texas is also a personal friend of Mine Nikola how are. It's always good to see my friend. All right. There's a lot going on man and I want to get to George Soros and how just saying that name made people freak out on Fox, news of all places the other day but I want to do that secondarily the top story that people are following right now of course, the writing that's happened to Louisville, and of course, opportunists a writing in New York and the writing Atlanta writing anywhere they can because this is some sort of a free ticket to go in riot and and and caused vandalism but let's let's break down the case as A. Former da you're an attorney I I wonder how you have handled this. Let me lay out what I know and tell me if I've got any of it wrong from what you know and if be there should have been any charges at all. So you've got a woman who's been surveilled investigated for a long time by the local police, their Louisville not an EMT has been reported not asleep in her bed when she was killed a lot of what's being reported as false her name was on the search warrant they wanted to search her residence even though the other guy was going to be there. So they. Go there twelve thirty three at night. They haven't no knock warrant which they're allowed to get, which means you just barge in break the door down and go and go you know detain her as you search the premises but even do that they decided to knock they decided to announce a an independent witness I heard them say police I heard them knocking the guy inside against gets dressed gets out of bed they're both of the Hallway When the police do breach because they won't open the door and when they breached the door and the guy takes centers nine shoots a cop on the leg and then thirty, some odd shots are fired by police. She ends up dead. The guy is unscathed oddly which is strange to me but as far as what you know. If she's named on the search warrant. If a search warrant has gotten because the probable cause it is if they go there and actually knock it announced and then when they finally breached the door they get shot out, is it a problem to shoot back Bacau now when you think about the reasonable belief of apparent dangerous an imminent that Is The standard for the use of self defense use of deadly force whatever that you have to use and you can match the force being used against you. If someone's yelling at you, you can't punish them if someone punches you, you can't necessarily stabbed them or shoot them and you understand my example. Situation objectively forget about the emotions yet. Objectively, you have a search warrant that obviously was supported by probable cause by an independent magistrate to give the officers the legal authority be there. So they're not just randomly going around hunting people down there. Legally they have no not warrant. It started in with the drug wars where they were trying to avoid people suspects from getting rid of the evidence they're looking for and then over the years. Fairly enough many officers not all over used them. Okay. Are the exception not the rule but in this situation, they had a no knock warrant. They didn't execute him not worn from all the testimony from even the gentleman inside leaves me Walker. He heard something he got dressed he had time to grab his gun laws. Things were happening. They were announcing outside they finally made breach in in the in the house and he shot and they shot back I mean this is a use of deadly force that matches the force they can be used. What people don't understand is that you're allowed to use deadly force if you're allowed to shoot, there's no requirement. At least in Texas for sure many states that you can only shoot once back, you can use whatever force needed to stop the threat and when you have multiple officers, you're gonNA find yourself in a very unfortunate situation like that, and that would seems to happen here. I also considered equal hood, a gun expert or or a firearms expert. You got plenty of them you and I trained together in firearms I'm wondering. Can you peace in your mind either on aspect or as an attorney or as a former da why it is the guy who shooting doesn't get shot only she gets shot Mike. My question is this is he hiding behind her we have can you put it peacebuilding your mind at all y. she's dead and he's fine in the scenarios that I've seen judge Oh you can imagine I've seen all kinds of scenarios. Where somebody should've been whatever fill in the blank and the other person shouldn't have whatever fill in the blank and go awry? Who knows that scenario that many rounds being shot and where they were how the house setup was I'd have to look at so much evidence of what happened that night and where people's positioning were how close almost got shot who knows but it is odd that is definitely not the norm. Equal Hood. Go to the website Lahood Norton. Dot. com. That's the law office. He's the former Da Bear County Texas as a da you dealt with misinformation a lot in fact, the local media that sucks when after the paper media specifically that sucks few a allot and it was unfair do you have to spend any time if somebody who holds office that elected office dispelling misinformation that's out there a and I I bring That up because this case, the Lai is that she was at Mt. she hadn't been for three years the lion she was asleep in her bed when she was shot and killed that's not true. The lies that they went to the wrong address. That's not true. Her address was on the warrant. In fact, she was the subject of the search worn on purpose because they felt she had strong connections to drug dealing in the area. So right. So all of that misinformation is out there and it's still being today by Benjamin crump the family's lawyer who got him twelve million dollars. So now he's still pushing up this information today in that elected office. How much time do you have to spend on that and how much of a hindrance was that you doing your job? It was a hindrance I spend time doing it because I felt as a public servant and my responsibility my employers were the citizens of bear county that they ordered. I had an obligation to answer to people and Cunene, my reputation, and when those using air quotes very loosely journalism, they would lie about. I wanted to defend myself people told me don't pick a fight with people that by eight by the barrel. Well, I'm not picking a fight with them, defending myself and so I go right to defend myself and I did. But yes, unfortunately, that is something that takes away from an elected official job and some people say ignore it. I didn't think you should ignore it because in my humble opinion joke that if ally goes unchecked, it becomes the. Truth and that's the way it is the truth on social media right now, there are people who are literally shooting cops in Louisville or hitting the at bats because they believe the lies that are being pushed by an attorney give him on. This is the same attorney who is the attorney for the family of Michael Brown in Ferguson Missouri who said the guy was on his knees his hands up saying don't shoot as he was executed Eric holder. Found out that just wasn't true. In fact, the COP was shooting in self defense and this guy wrestled for his gun in his police car. So the lies a guessing it's because these guys are profiteer the Liser to fill his pockets at his conference in his bank account and I guess we don't care about the the the collateral damage is that what it is like the moral compasses issue and again, I, don't know the man himself all I can do as judge him by his fruit scripture says, how do you three bites brute our behaviors reflection of our mindset in the way we believe. Our philosophy ideology. That's why I look at behavioral your behaviors who you are, but it's a reflection of how you believe in what you believe and so I don't know why he does what he does my top. If you ever try to figure out why people do anything you go crazy all I know is I look at the facts. The facts don't care about your feelings. Facts are not emotional the facts truth and the truth. If you don't like gravity jump off a building, gravity doesn't care. The truth is the truth and on the way down acute tweet gravity is unreal admitted it will save me. If your your focus you made. Up You're probably pretty good. Over. How do you? How do you make misinformation believable you a little bit of truth out of context machine antique she was was she in a bed prior to her alluding her life at blue she was at the time and so you have these truths out of context. They give you passionate in what you're saying and so I don't know what this guy's motivation are. I think it is safe to say that it is money driven. I think that's safe. I won't say that for sure until I know that myself it's unfortunate I. think it puts a stain on the profession that I love think he's an honorable profession even those a lot of non honorable people that are in. The Hood Lahood Dot Norton Dot Com LaHood dot com. The law office. So let's get into George Soros your no longer the DA. In Bear County because of George Soros I can say that because his factual recently Newt Gingrich, the former speaker of the house was on. Fox News Channel is some sort of a round table. He was on skype or something like we're doing and he brings up the named George Soros. What's happening in the country's George Soros who's buying DA's offices he Is Buying the office of the top COP, the top law enforcement official in these counties in these cities in states. That's a known fact in Saint Louis, they did it here in San Antonio. They did it in parts of California they've done it. We could probably name ten where he's done this in your race he injected almost a million dollars of primary you. You are a conservative Democrat I feel strongly conservative conservative and you've probably run as a Republican. You've told me that if you ran again. But you're a conservative Democrat doing a great job and your primary by very far left wing radical liberal. I don't think prostitution and marijuana or crimes. Da Guy.

On the program yesterday with you like it or not about the show but you're on facebook the entire show probably uploading pictures. That you were helping to be defeated. For one pags. So a lot of stuff to get tonight citizen-soldier there's a lot of. Hurts. These stories you've got one from Kroger does it makes your face hurt so in other words, you must change who you are as a person if you wanna work at Kroger's what you're telling me. Well let me read you the story filming from the blaze. The federal equal. Employment. Opportunity Commission filed a Religious Discrimination Lawsuit Against Supermarket Chain Kroger on behalf to the store fired them. After they refused to aprons that included an lgbtq symbol ABC News reported at the lawsuit claims ex-workers, Brenda, Lawson, and trudy records said the company implemented a policy in April two thousand eighteen that required employees to wear an apron that included a rainbow heart, which they say endorses lgbtq values that it works. At the women claimed wearing simple violate their religious beliefs that the even trying to offer alternatives news said citing the lawsuit Lawson, who is seventy two at the time said she offered to wear the apron with her name tag covering the emblem but the Conway Arkansas store allegedly refused the network said I'm requesting a reasonable accommodation of dress code with regard to my religious beliefs she wrote in a letter requesting religious accommodations ABC News said citing the lawsuit I'm simply asking for my name badge. Logo A to was fifty seven at the time said she offered to where different apron without the emblem instant explaining why she felt she could not comply with the policy. The network reported I had a sincerely held religious belief. I cannot wear a symbol that promotes or endorses something that is in violation and my religious faith she wrote in the letter. ABC. News said I. respect others who have a different opinion and? Happy to work alongside others who desire to wear the symbol. I'm happy to buy another apron to ensure there is no financial hardship on Kroger Kroger. The country's largest supermarket chain allegedly denied both requests et retaliated against the women by disciplining them and ultimately firing them. The network reported ABC News said Theresa Dickerson a Kroger Communication Representative at declined networks request for comment and cited a standard against speaking publicly on pending, litigation. Okay. So let's take the ladies at their word and let's while we say that. Let's also add the fact that Kroger hasn't commented. Maybe they'll be a legitimate reason why people had to wear a rainbow heart. Let's pretend. There's some legitimate reason why at the same time we take though and then at their word. So there are two sides of the story. Kroger is not giving it side, which is actually Kinda dumb because in this day and age, the Court of public opinion is really the one that keeps the story I ran a Taylor you've got so many lies out there about that story that people literally believe him. So let's talk about this you go to work. And the boss says. All right. We're going to change her aprons. We've got this. Heart logo now, which is a rainbow heart we want to share the rain. -clusive. On the were tolerant. So it should wear the heart logo on your. Apron. Couple of Christian women say listen. My religious belief is that that's a sin on promote something that we see is a sin and like two billion people on Earth thinkers ascend even more than that of you hadn't Muslims to about three and a half billion people. So, we'd rather not for religious reasons and Kroger says, no, you have to aware it but I'm GonNa put my name tag over it. So not promoting it and Kroger says, well, no, you have to wear it. You have to display it, and then because of their complaints they say they were fired. Right Kerry needed. K. Kroger is completely wrong. Here is completely all wet here and cannot force you to. It would be like saying if you work here, you have to wear black lives matter on your on your. Shirt your uniform whatever angle to Villanueva. The player from the for the steelers who did not want to wear that guy's name on his helmet or on his shirt. And he covered it up with the name of somebody who died fighting for freedom and liberty in war. That was his right to do so and he wasn't fired from the steelers. He wasn't reprimanded from what? I understand. The Court of public opinion gave me a hard time. But so what? At the end of the day, if it doesn't align with your belief system, your employer cannot make you change your beliefs. Now, going in see here's the rub if you're going in and he said work at Kroger and Kroger says, okay, you have to wear a rainbow heart g you accept that stipulation now you have the right to say, yes, I'll work annoy won't have you accept the dress code then you will I'm I'm positive since this is something new that that was not the dress code that they accepted when they accepted the job at. Kroger, you can't change policy and make it infringe upon somebody's religious freedoms. After the fact, you can't do it. So crawl went on this when they're gonNA lose badly and these women will get their back pain get their jobs back or whatever. If the law is what I think it is according to the constitution, your thoughts eighty, eight, nine, four, one pags,.

And this is the key connectivity to improving our service. Once we get all the mail on that, on those trumps and 97 98% of the male that we move around the country will be getting to its destination point on time. That was not the case was significant, substantially less than that. We tried to my rival, those two changes. Comittee that I've that I've makes inside since I've been here, Postmaster General that was to joy transfer general. I think you should be commended for this type of initiative not condemned center Peter's Ron Johnson, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, at there's virtual hearing, now the ranking Democrat Thank you, Mr Chairman and Mr Join again. Thank you for being here today and I just want to start off before asking some questions is making it very clear that the men and women who worked at the Postal Service who check in every day to do their jobs, do it with professionalism with integrity and a passion to move. The male is quickly and as efficiently as possible, But I think of the postal workers, the mail handlers, the letter carriers. They're doing a great job. They're clearly essential workers each and every day. But as we've been going through this issue, and I've talked to many off those folks across my state, they have grown increasingly frustrated with some of the recent policies that have come in place, which they say there's nothing that they've seen in the past. And they believe that male has been piling up in ways that shouldn't on DH. It needs to be addressed. But these air management changes their policy changes. It's not the men and women who are on the front line. Doing this this work every day. So like my question, our postmaster General Choi, you have already heard being my opening comments, talking about the fact that I've received over 7500 complaints from folks all across Michigan, but really across the country, folks of scent in their concerns to me earlier in my opening statement, I shares and stories of hardships so from folks both Macbeth and Mary, they're They're challenges in Michigan. So and I think I heard this in the last answer you, you acknowledge. That some of the changes that were put in place have delayed the mail and with with a delay in male people can sometimes be heard. First of all, I do recognize thie quality capability of the American postal worker. That's one of the reasons that I'm here. I tze to help a CZ well as got to the Postal Service is the world serving American American. The public. Yes, sir. I do recognize that some of these has been to changes the organizational changes that no, I don't believe has any impact on what we've done. The transportations change. Get compliance with us again. Let me just jump. I don't mean to cut you out. But I'll get into those issues because I want you to elaborate a little bit further. But you were there have been delays. You'll recognize that it's clear what we're saying. Mail's been laid and I've spent over Onthe asking you to provide some documentation and of my oversight function here in this committee to how you made these decisions. What kind of analysis What sort of data was put in place And for that and how that information impact and some of the changes you have. Your staff has repeatedly not answered those questions. And so certainly that transparency I think is is unacceptable. What I have uncovered, though, from what little data is made public by the Postal Service is on time mail delivery. I have my chart as well here, too, which is from the Eastern Division. This is what you give to your to your business customers. And if you look at this line here, if it's probably hard to see, but there is a red line of which you can see dipping dramatically. There's a flat line along the top of the chart. Then it drops around July 11th You start seeing the drama of July 18th and falls dramatically..

And Dr Shaw of Harris County Public Hill in Texas all say that inconsistent messaging is severely hurting our ability to respond to this crisis. Does it help FEMA's response effort when the president people say's things about the Corona virus that are not accurate searches he did Sunday when he claimed that the Corona virus is going to disappear? It's so you know, my role and administration is to make sure that I focus on leading federal operational coordination, making sure that all the things we need to overcome Coburn, 19.

My role was make sure that every Requests from every governor from every mayor for maybe tribal chief is fulfilled to the best of our ability based on what we have. That is, that is my role in fighting Kogan, 19. Thank you. But consistent message in. All the experts say is important. If we're going to get through this and get over this, let me actually this has FEMA ever been directed by anyone at the White House to procure supplies from Minnesota. Oh, sure what I want. Put on on the screen. Ah ah contract that between FEMA and a contract that female provided us a born requests and the acumen procurement of in 95 model our P 8801 A and R p 880 20 Respirators it say's audit directed by the White House. Um and you all provided that To us. So what I want you to do if you can't explain it now, because part of the conversation we've been hearing is that agencies have been directed to do certain things. Ah, you Satan contractors and you say it haven't I have provided you with documents that you provided us and I just want you to go back and check your people. The Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson do that. You're not saying something that is not true from females. I'm absolutely confident that you said about not receiving direction from the White House is absolutely 100% true that document that we provided is really administrative note by one about contracting offices where we got many different inputs from where we could find supplies from covert 19 I received a two high 20.50 e mails a day from people trying to Offer me people where we could buy it all pushed into the system I receive phone calls from mayors have received phone calls from governors about Ah local producer had pp. I received information from the vice president and the task force what people would call them hospital say, Hey, I know Vour PPG provider and look into this. And so that's a reflection of this Where I where we got all sorts information from everyone. I get calls from senators and congressmen saying I have a person that produces people am I Please. Can you put that into the contract and Shayne? That is a reflection of just that thousands and thousands of unsalted requests from many different people around the country. Trying to be very helpful on it comes from all different directions. I the the gap between somebody offering a supplier, whether it's true or whether it's it's Ah, you don't have anything that is tryingto and the gap between us contracting. And I said it before is is why is the Grand Canyon FEMA administrator Peter Gaynor, But I want you to look at it that particular information and after you have get back to us and say it was exactly what I say it right, so I looked out. I tell you right now I'll save you the time. It's exactly why senators thankyou chair recognizes the ranking member of a full committee investigator for being here. Eras You know, hurricane season began June 1st and the chairman and I both represent states that are on the Gulf Coast hurricane season is a big deal for us. Is FEMA capable of managing Coben? 19 response in hurricane season simultaneously way are sore and I have I have stated publicly before. I don't think FEMA has been more ready than we are. Today. We have not only dealt with Cove in 19 response. The ongoing response. We have dealt with flooding in Michigan. We've done flooded dealt with earthquakes in Puerto Rico. We've dealt with tornadoes on DH. We are completely ready for the hurricane season early on after we would task by the president to provide Or begin or take over the lead for federal operation. Coordination, Way knew we would be in hurricane season. So we drafted a plan called the Covert 19 Pandemic Operation Guidance for the 2020 season. This was done and issued on May 20th. We did this in 21 days we took. We took all the lessons learned up to that time about how to integrate respond to covert 19 and hurricane season. This is actually you could Use this for any hazard. So whether it's wild fires of flooding, the lessons learned in this apply to all has is across the country. We want to make sure that jurisdictions look at their existing plans about evacuation and sheltering and apply the lessons that you need to apply that we've learned in covert 19. You need more time. You need more space. You need to do more cleaning all those kind of things you're gonna have to get out was a local mercy Mandra in a city and I was a stadium. The manager. You have to go through all those plans to make sure you update those. So you're ready for whether it's a hurricane or tornado or a wildfire. We provided some planning guidance across the nation made sure that not only the federal government is ready, but our partners locally executed state managing fairly supported. It's a team effort. It all has to work together. On course, we need our citizens to be ready for disasters. Also, so it's Ah it's all of us. All of community effort. Do you find those local partners being willing to participate in a cooperative manner with you and trying to prepare? So I missed the words or do you find it?

I talked to include governors have taken these guides guidelines under consideration and are making and have made preparations for hurricane sees the measure that they're completely ready now for a hurricane But hurricane while responding over 19 the chairman was talking to you about Peopie in some of the shortages that we've expiry. Just you know, we we know that China has been a source of primary source of production of pp. And I think you're going to see our country move away from that in the future, but My understanding for your responses to the chairman's questions is you feel like that? We now have found alternative sources that are sufficient for this. This camp equipment going forward is accurate way. Like I said, before. We're in a much better place than we were coming out of March and April, however, Ware not out of the woods completely with Pee pee again. The majority people is made offshore. China, Malaysia, Vietnam and so one of our efforts early on with a supply chain control.

"As the U._S. according to C._N._N.. Reporting is looking at possibly being more hawkish and tone towards Iran so you chaired the Homeland Security Committee you sit on the Foreign Relations Committee is the U._S. headed closer to war with Iran. I hope not but let's face it. Iran has been a malign influence the largest sponsor terrorists since its founding back in the late seventies cities you go down the list of the bombing or the spine. The Iraq war their involvement in Syria in Yemen that is why we were so opposed to the Iranian agreement because it pushed allowed hundreds ah more than one hundred billion dollars of of money to flow into the economy and the military of the largest state sponsor of terror and by the way as you see as they've increased their enrichment of uranium. It did nothing to stop their nuclear weapons program so again again. I think Iran is playing a very very dangerous. Game makes no sense of they'd go after the U._k.. I think they were trying to divide the U._S.. From from our allies they're just uniting us in hopefully standing up to Iran once and for all demanding they never have a nuclear weapon and to end their missile bullshit missile technology and their maligned sponsor of terrorism around the region around the world. Let's talk about the border you it's Homeland Security Chair. I know you have been working very hard to come up with a bipartisan partisan solution to the crisis there the humanitarian crisis and the whole crisis overall currently are you any closer to that as you're talking to your democratic colleagues behind the scenes I think we took a good step but it's just a a baby step in signing letter support for operation safe return where we rapidly and more accurately determined those families that clearly don't have even a credible fear claim and safely and I underline safely return those individuals..

"The fact there was it was a lie about a leak that was damaging to Hillary Clinton. And it was not pro Hillary Clinton, but let's turn to the government shutdown. I know you're eager to talk about. It's now the longest shot American history. The Senate has gone home your home, Warners home. Hundreds of thousands of Americans are not getting their paycheck. Republicans did have unified control of the federal government for the past few years and did not pass any major immigration reform or wall funding. Our new CNN poll out this morning shows that most Americans are putting the blame for the shutdown on President Trump. If this is so important and so needed why didn't Republicans in the house and Senate pass wall funding at any point in the last two years. Because we have a majority in the Senate, but we don't control it. We Democrats work with this. And there's real easy solution have Democrats stop being hypocritical and put their money where their mouth is and fund better berries. They work. They were they supported and voted for about eight billion dollars a better barrier. Funding in the two thousand thirteen migration reform forty billion dollars in total in terms of border security, this growing problem in two thousand twelve a little over eleven thousand people came to this country as family units last year. It was one hundred seven thousand people coming as a family unit in the first three months of this fiscal year spent seventy five thousand people this was all sparked by Dhaka, even the Obama administration realized that we had to deter this. It's a growing problem. It's not going away. It's getting bigger and bigger and Democrats continue to minimize this. We need barriers as just the first step, but we also have to fix all kinds of bad law in loopholes, and legal precedent that is incentivizing rewarding people come this. Entry either as unaccompanied children from Central America or as members of family units. And again that is a growing problem that is the problem with the border is a crisis. The border is viewed as a crisis in two thousand fourteen when a total of one hundred twenty thousand people came in as family unison and unaccompanied children last year one hundred and forty five thousand people came in under the same category. It is a growing problem. It needs to be addressed in the easiest solution the shutdown just give President Trump the money for his the mandate. He received for the American public. Let's face it as a candidate. This is what he talked about. If there was a mandate he can claim from his election is better border security, keep this nation safe. Democrats voted for this in the past there being total hypocrites. It's easy. This could be solved in fifteen minutes is the president has has said just fund the barriers which we need. We're out of time. But I just wanna get you on the record. If no compromise is able to be reached would you support? President Trump declaring a national emergency to be able. Fund, his border wall. The better solution be to pass our shutdown fairness act, which is going to pay those individuals that are being forced to work because they're essential. So I've got a piece of legislation got about five cosponsors already. We'll introduce it tomorrow, but he'll actually pay those workers that descended Warner's concerned about so hopefully, Mitch McConnell bring that up hopefully, Democrats will support or hopefully, President Trump consignment. So at least those individuals get paid, I okay, but beyond that, assuming that the shutdown still continues would you support President Trump? Yes, or no declaring a national emergency. I would hate seat using that act. It would be in. This instance, would be far larger actions ever occurred in the past. So I for not primarily because if we do that it's going to go to court and the wall won't get built. So I actually want to see this wall get built. And so I want to keep pressure on Democrats actually, come to the negotiating table in good, faith and fund with supported in the past. All right, Senator Ron Johnson, Republican of Wisconsin, chairman of the homeland security committee. Thanks so much for joining us this snowy morning. We appreciate it as potential two thousand twenty candidates starting today, healthcare policy, our cities and states leading the way, the mayor of.

"The government Tim Kaine my fellow center, I met with a series of federal workers the other day, very, very briefly. Here are the things we heard do you want an air traffic controller who's working overtime without pay? You want that person focus on air safety. You you don't want thirty percent of his mind focus on whether he's going to be able to pay his mortgage or pay his kids tuition right now. We're hearing from another federal worker. We had another federal worker who had to draw out she'd had savings. She had to draw down from our IRA. We're even as she gets reimbursed. She's going to still have paid the tax penalty. We had another worker who took a multi dollar increase from the credit card those credit card fees. They'll never be reimbursed. So and Jake the worst story we heard the woodland just one is this one is one where I can. I think this Trump crowd does not think through anything they basically there was some there with a seven week old baby. When they tried to get there baby on the insurance. They're government owned insurance. The person that was supposed to fill in the form was furloughed the doctor gave a very expensive medicine for the baby. Thank goodness for the guy was able to convince the insurance company, but countless others are going out without that that kind of benefit I think history will show that Donald Trump. This supposed great dealmaker, and I'm working on a piece on. This that business schools and management consultants will look back for years and say, this was the most inept negotiation. He boxed himself in a corner. He didn't empower his negotiators like the vice president or Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell. He's not allowed any win win win circumstance and the disregard is paid to the federal workers where he has been cavalier never sat down and visit with them. And then to add insult to injury. I didn't get a lot of news. We'd we bipartisan had promised federal workforce a very meager one point nine percent increase. Right wipe that pay increase out as well. As this treatment of the workforce. That's been just awful Senator. Mark Warner from the Commonwealth of Virginia. Thank you so much for your time. We appreciate it.
