Supreme Court denies Congress access to undisclosed Mueller material

"Supreme Court has denied Congress access to secret grand jury testimony from special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation through the November election. At least the justice have agreed to hear the Trump administration's appeal of a lower court order that said that material must be turned over to the Democratic controlled House of Representatives. High court's action will keep the documents out of congressional hands until at least the case is resolved, which likely won't happen before 2021

Phase 3 in Louisiana put off amid coronavirus spike

"The country states are trying to balance public health and safety with the economic impact of lockdowns. The push and pull is being felt nationwide, but especially in some states that are now rethinking the reopening timetables summit arise and Corona. Virus cases one of them. Is Louisiana one of the hardest hit states in the nation? Early on in the pandemic, the state had begun reopening, but is now hitting. Pause on those plans joining me now with more details as reporter Scott Calvert. Scott before we talk about the fight to reopen, let's backtrack to the early days of the pandemic. Louisiana was one of the worst hit states in the country. That's right. Yeah I mean in late, March and early April the number of cases and the death toll in Louisiana, particularly in the new, Orleans area was just enormous, and at one point Louisiana rather was second only to new. New York state in per capita deaths, and there were two parishes which are the equivalent of counties in Louisiana that had the highest number of deaths per capita nationwide, so it was. It was really bad, so we've seen cases. Go down in some of the places that were hit hard early on like new. York New Jersey, but that hasn't been the case in Louisiana. Why not? Well. The governor on Bel Edwards basically says that people have not been good about doing things like wearing masks and practicing social distancing and staying home. They're sick. That sort of thing and it's really interesting because you know in in Louisiana their numbers basically peaked in mid April, and you started seeing this sort of steady decline in hospitalization and things like that and they really thought that things were going to keep getting better and they did. Did until mid June so just a couple of weeks ago, and then it started getting up again, and it's been doing that ever since the last two plus weeks the number of cases has been rising number of hospitalizations are on the upswing, and you know the the governor says it's really really boils down to people, not doing those things like wearing masks and practicing social distancing as the state has started to open up again. No amid arise in cases in several states, especially in the south and western United States. We've seen some areas, rollback or pause plans to reopen, but there is a fight going on in Louisiana over the reopening. What's happening? Right so Louisiana entered phased to in their lexicon back in on June the fifth and what that did is that allowed restaurants and gyms and hair salons, a lot of other businesses to operate at fifty percent capacity, and before that they have been at twenty five percent capacity. So what happened is early last week Governor Edwards said look. I'm going to pause us in phase two for another four weeks rather than go to the next phase of of reopening, and he said that he was doing that because the numbers weren't looking good, because the cases were up and so forth. Forth, and so he thought it prudent to pause where they were to try to drive those numbers down, and the issue is there are a number of Republican lawmakers in the State House of Representatives. Who would like to take away his authority governors to to operate the state of emergency? Because basically what they want to do is to allow local jurisdictions. Perish isn't cities to decide how open or not, the local economies should be, and they make a number of arguments. I mean one is that the hospital system in Louisiana is nowhere near being overwhelmed, which was a very real concern. Concern a couple of months ago, they also point out that you know. There's variations in terms of how badly affected certain parts of the state are, and they also point out that a lot of younger adults are are driving these increases in in case numbers, and that you know for the most part younger people people in their twenties say do pretty well clinically in terms of the virus, Cova Nineteen and that essentially, it's time to to open up the state more than it is. Because a lot of businesses are are really hurting in many ways. It seems like the challenges several. Several states are facing and that we've been talking about for the last several weeks. Balancing Public Health and safety concerns with economic concerns and the challenges, especially for small businesses that aren't able to stay open. That's right and one of the interesting dynamics there in Louisiana is you know. I talked to the head of the Baton Rouge area. Chamber of Commerce and they don't support this effort to override the governor's state of emergency, which is basically a petition drive in the House of Representatives and one of the reasons why they don't is because. They told me that they think that. They're satisfied with the path that they're on the way. The governor is handling this, but one of the real concerns I think is that if the number of cases keeps rising and in the state, decide that needs to take more drastic action. They're worried about restrictions being reimposed and rolling back to say phase one when they could only open at twenty five percent, and so they really don't WanNa. Go backwards and they're. They're not thrilled probably with with being at half capacity, but they'd rather do that. And I think a lot of businesses are able to more or less deal with that environment, rather than than go back to a situation where either they have to have a lower capacity or close altogether. And what is the governor saying about the petition effort? Governor Edwards has said he doesn't think this effort is going to succeed. But he also described it as irresponsible to the point of being asinine, and he thinks it just sends the wrong message to the residents of Louisiana at a time when they really are trying to encourage people to wear mouse, and be socially distant and things like that, and he also says that if that were to succeed in Louisiana would be the only state other than Wisconsin without a statewide order. At this point, the only reason Wisconsin doesn't have one. Is that the State Supreme? Court there overturned the Wisconsin border?

China Passes Hong Kong Security Law With Sweeping Powers

"Good morning, China did not even have to begin enforcing a new law to make changes in Hong Kong, the central government just passed the National Security Law in Beijing. And in Hong Kong, pro democracy leaders are already stepping away from politics. This new law criminalizes a lot of dissent and changes the way that the centers would be put on trial. All of this affects a coastal territory that is supposed to have some autonomy. Dating back to its time as a British possession. NPR's Emily Fang is following this from Beijing, either. Emily he Steve, is it understood exactly what's in the law? Yeah, that's the thing. Beijing passed this law about nine hours ago, but they still have not provided us a public draft of the law, meaning Hong Kong people are supposed to follow a lot that they haven't read yet. But broadly we know that this law would allow Beijing not Hong Kong to Judge case's deems relevant to national security and that Beijing will set up its own security body on Hong Kong soil to collect intelligence and investigate such cases. This was a highly secretive and accelerated process for passing what is a very significant piece of legislation. Talk to Wilson Lung earlier today, he's a council member of Hong Kong's Bar Association. That's just completely contrary to the notions of law that we had in Hong Kong, which is the law as a accessible You know, transparent process. Where before you in AKA law, You discuss it. You get the draft out to debate it. Instead, What Beijing did was they bypassed Hong Kong's legislative legislature? Completely it hen picked, which representatives to consult and simply imposed the law. Hong Kong is to be supposed to follow you mentioned the Beijing will have its own course courts for cases that are of interest of Beijing so people will not be getting into the independent courts they've had since the British Times. And that they thought they were promised. Until I believe 2040 2047 does this break the promise of some autonomy for Hong Kong? Of course, Beijing says that this upholds that principle of semi autonomy but in practice yes, it breaks that promise. This law shows that Beijing's legal dictates now supersede Hong Kong's own rule of law. Whenever Beijing decides that issue falls under the umbrella of national security. I also talked to Alan Long, he's former chair of Hong Kong's Legal Bar Association. He's now a pan democratic politician. He says that this national security law creates a parallel legal procedure in Hong Kong that's run by Beijing and Beijing.

He's a combat veteran, and he's not buying the administration's argument that they didn't share this information sooner because they're still trying to prove it out. And the story continues to evolve. In a new statement, the National Security Advisor Robert O'Brien said intelligence officials continue to investigate and could prepare a response over time. Okay, so Democrats go into the White House today. Interestingly, the White House briefed some Republicans yesterday. What happened in that meeting. So several of these members who attended this meeting afterwards echo the White House's narrative that the Intel community is conflicted on what actually happened and that they didn't necessarily think that Trump needed to be briefed yet, But they also expressed concern If the reports turn out to be true, I spoke to representative Adam Kinzinger of Illinois.

NPR also spoke with representative Michael McCaul, another member who attended the meeting. He's a top Republican for the House Foreign Affairs Committee. And he said these allegations are very serious. And if true, he thinks the U. S needs to take swift and severe action against Russia.

American, intelligence officials concluded months ago that Russian. Officials offered rewards for successful attacks on American service members at a time when the US and Taliban were holding talks to end the long-running war last year. Trump in a Sunday morning tweet, said nobody briefed told me all vice president Mike Pence. Chief of staff, Mark Meadows about the so-called attacks on our troops in Afghanistan Russians everybody is denying it, and they have not been many attacks on us, he said.

Congress Announces Willingness To Give Black Lives Matters Protestors Statue Or Holiday

"Weeks of nationwide protests bird by the police killing of George Floyd. Congressional leaders are finally taking action lawmakers in Washington today officially announce their willingness to give black lives matter protesters, statue, or a holiday or something for more. I'm joined by OPR Congressional correspondent Charles Dearborn Charles. Can you give us a little more context sure Leslie? We've seen sustained protests in all fifty states demanding. Demanding Accountability from those in power, and now Congress has heeded their call. Here's main representative Edward Knicks on how this all came to be. People around this nation are calling for dramatic change. I can assure you that we intend to meet this moment with the support. It deserves a nice memorial. Say or perhaps a national day of remembrance that Individual States can decide to declare an. An official day off work if they want. Wow, that's pretty impressive stuff. It is indeed if passed, it would be some of the most sweeping federal legislation to address racial inequality in decades. Nice to see them finally putting their money where their mouth is. So what stages the legislation at right now there is a bill currently being drafted, so the details are still being hammered out. Out One of the biggest decisions, obviously will be whether to give them a statue or a holiday. Here's an ex with more I want to say to my constituents in the country. We have heard your message. Loud and clear enough is enough, and we intend to show this building a statue of a white hand, holding a black hand or some black children, looking inspirational or something. But then again a day I probably wouldn't cost us as much. Maybe that's the way to go. That's terrific, so do we expect this lot of pass? Well? Of course, it will have to go through a Republican controlled Senate and several members of already been pushing to dilute the bill by providing only a small metal plaque, or just rolling the whole thing to Martin Luther King Day will these all sound like great options to me, but should we expect this to appease the protesters? Based on talking to several senators, the black lives matter members are going to be very excited about this big step, and this is probably the last will hear from them while and do we have any comment from any of these activists. Sounds good. Thanks for the report, Charles. That's OPR's channels Dearborn back with more right after this.

A Living Sacrifice?

"Where we're going. We are talking about how to read. The New Testament Letters. Yes, and what? We established I. Hope in our last conversation was simply they are actually letters, not essays. You logical essays. Written out of a very specific context into context, so in a way that is more heightened, even than other parts of the Bible context is everything for making sense of these letters. Some people have used the metaphor of hearing one end of a phone conversation. Actually, this is very common. Cause people walk around with. Little speakers in their ears, talking with weird is when they're really tiny bluetooth microphones, and they look like they're talking to themselves walking down the side of it because I love the great because I like to talk to myself while I walk around. And look crazy. And then those came out and I was like. Oh, I just got put this. Time if walking around talking I, might just be talking about. It'd be talking to yourself, so thank dynamic when you're in like a coffee shop, or if it's somebody you know this happened with you and I before where you'll take a phone call I. Don't know who it is. But I'm listening to your tone of voice, your body language, and your words and I'm trying to guess if I know who it is, and I can often guests based on what you're talking about, and those kinds of things. What I'm talking so. The letters that way that we're reading one end of a correspondence, but we own only getting one speaker, and so we have to do is in for and look at the letter as a context, but then get all of these other layers of context to to understand what's being said. It's the basic point, but it needs to be made. So what we're going to do is begin exploring. Call, them, what four layers of context for the just as a technical note I think we can do these first three in one in the first video and then I think the second video can explore the dynamics of the fourth literary context. In currently how I'm envisioning it, but it might change as we talk got, so we're GONNA to talk about right now is where the letters fit in the overall storyline, and that might seem self evident, but actually if you drill down and look at some things, there's a lot of new things that pop from the letters when you look at how they fit into the story, so let's go real big picture here. Where does the storyline of the Bible Begin? Page one right answer and. Here God speaks and ordered and inhabited world into being, and he appoints his image bearing representatives to rule it on his behalf as his partners. We've talked about this at length, but this is the drama. This is the drama and fundamental plot conflict, driving the whole Bible power humans going to partner with God right to rule creation Yup in this story God's purpose that humans rule the world as his pristine faithful divine images in the world. That's right. Right male and female ruling together as kings and Queens of creation. You get a little palm here in Genesis one God created human in his own image in the image of God. He created him, and that singular refers to the collective species human, and then the next line of the palm spells out what the him consists of namely humanity consists of male and female created them so many rabbit holes. We're not gonNA to do what we normally do. All right so humans are. Humans are stupid, right? But more and more importantly their their stupidity comes out of misdirected desire. Genesis three, the fundamental portrait of what's wrong with the humans is misdirected desire. She looks at the Gift of God Genesis, three six, and what ignited in her is desire for wisdom, but in a way that doesn't honor God's wisdom and Instruction Story misdirected desire that results in exile and death, so God's long term solution to this problem is to pick one family among the families of land, and to appoint them as his conduit or vehicle

A Funny Byproduct Of Having To Buy Fewer Products

"About our fancy frame TV. Over the last couple of weeks on the PODCAST and I guess also on the blog. If you've seen our last couple blog post, we've been talking about how we've been pleasantly surprised that the furniture we moved down here for the most part fit very well and naturally into our new home. Yeah, it is kind of amazing to say. We showed a bunch of stuff in the. The pod I mean we did have measurements for rooms, and we did have an idea of what we're going to wear, so we weren't just like willy. Nilly putting a bunch of things in the pod, but we knew as we loaded the pod like there is going to be a margin for error I'm sure we'll get there and something won't work the way we thought it. It would because there's really nothing like being in a space and moving furniture around like you can try to do that in your head. When you're not in the space, it's really hard to land on the right. You Know Group of objects in the right. Lay Out I think anytime. We've moved houses. There's been this process where like some of your old furniture doesn't fit in. In the new house, for whatever reason like maybe it's because of the scale of the peace or the exact dimensions, or even a style, but you know you have these pieces that just don't land and work I think we expected that issue with at least some of the things that we brought down, but again we're grateful. Most everything has pretty much worked as it is. Is Yeah were even things John was like I. don't even know why we're bringing this. And then we brought it, and like played a very important role like remember. We talked about those bookcases that we're using in the kitchen and they have like so much storage. They're basically like extending our cabinets using as a pantry fought to leave those in richmond or sell them in Richmond. Richmond because I didn't think we had a place for them. And Sherry was right and the table in the kitchen. There's like a round white table that was like a game table in our old house in the bonus room and John was like I can't picture for people being able to eat here. I can't picture it fitting in the kitchen and it like probably won't live. Live there forever, but it is so good for now and if it hadn't made the POD, we'd be in trouble once again. Sherry was right so I think it's been nice because we didn't have this kind of like panic buying mode when we got here. We're like we don't have a kitchen table shot for one real quick and pretty much the only things that we have. Have had to buy at least the big furniture pieces we've had to buy have been things we knew we'd have to get because we didn't bring them with us. Like our beds like we had to get an outdoor dining table and other side note as we were packing the dining table with outdoor dining table in Richmond, and it was routed in the legs fell off. So we basically bought the same sized table. It was a different finish in a different color, and it works perfectly like I'm actually really glad that one did fall apart in Richmond. Has that one was like seven years old and disbar gone, and even informed the decision like that one was would, and it was rotten, so we got a metal and resin one. That will not, so you know some things were just dumb. Luck. Something's were strategy, but whatever it is that led us to where we are. We both kind of expected to land me like okay so now we need a rug dresser aside table six lamps five. Cheers. But you know what I'm saying I thought we'd land and have this list of like huge furniture items we needed, and it's like all we really needed. Where the things we knew we needed off the bat like beds. Yeah I, think that's the point here is that we've been grateful that we haven't had to go on like this sudden shopping spree and the other thing I wanted. Wanted to point out that was interesting. As we are shopping for one of the other items. We knew we'd have to get which has been window coverings, because as you have probably seen on instagram. We've been using packing blankets. It's very swanky at Casa Peter Sick. Let me tell you packing blankets. They disintegrate into like a black soot, and it's all over your window sills, it's. It's all over your floors, but we have started to receive some of the curtains that we bought, and it highlighted something interesting about downsizing and going to a smaller house that I think we consciously have known, but this particular purchase was like a good case study to help us quantify one of the benefits of living in a smaller space and furnishing a smaller space I think. Think things that are more obvious to everyone is like Oh to clean and less to pay to heat and cool like we said that over and over again. It's like less maintenance if I only have one bathroom I, worry less about maintaining four showers, enforcing them leaking and all that stuff, but I think this is one of those things where it's like when we say it. But it's just a thing we consciously knew, but then it was really interesting to see the actual numbers I. Actually don't know all the numbers. John is going to reveal them to me. Yeah, so I actually went back and tallied how many curtain panels and blinds we had to buy for our Richmond House, which as you probably heard? Her say is more than twice the size of the house. We are now living in Florida. So obviously had more windows to cover. Yeah, I can't wait to hear the numbers. John was like their staggering. I was staggered, so keep in mind. We didn't have curtains on every window so like not in the kitchens, bathrooms or anything like that and having a dining room, either yes, so this is not representative all the windows, so we had actually more blinds, and we had curtains, but we had twenty four curtain panels in Richmond. House K Twenty four, and I should point out. Out In recent months before we left, we were starting to like double up. Some of the curtain panels to make them look thicker right. Some have always been double in our living room. That was four panels instead of to on that big picture window in our office. We had a big picture window with four pounds instead of two. Did you just count those to? Double them because I couldn't remember what was doubled, so the twenty four number is probably closer to like thirty or thirty two. Yeah, that's what I would guess. We also have thirty blinds throughout. The houses were also. Roughly sixty two different window coverings. That Jack's yeah I mean. It was a lot I. Remember hanging those. It took us forever and I remember buying them, and it was so much money. I remember the blinds. We were like Oh. Do we need lines? Backpedal real quick and when we got home depot and saw the total. Yes, so again thirty ish curtain panels thirty blinds. Are you ready for the Florida numbers? I can't wait in Florida instead of thirty. We only need eight curtain panels, eight curtain panels versus thirty well, there's the saving instead of thirty blinds. We need five blinds. Five lines is my favorite and. And we're being very specific about these lines, guys. No one has researched blinds more than us. We will share what we pick when it arrives and we're sure we like it I. Don't want to jinx it. Hence all the packing blankets because we're taking our time and I also just for fun also looked at the number of curtain panels in blinds that. That we had to buy for the Beach House and the duplex. That's going to be like a million. A million I mean feel like we're. It's going to be close because it was three kids nine bathrooms like it was six seven, eight nine hundred ten bedrooms like it's a lot of juices well, and it was also fifty two curtain panels O and And Forty two blinds, no regrets right. We're glad we had curtains and blinds, but it sure is nice. When what did you say it's eight and five here in Florida compared to when we tally all of those previous homes that we sold eighty two curtain panels and seventy two blinds is so insane. Yes, and we ironed in hand

"Procedural hurdles thrown up by Republicans and Mules of complaints from Donald Trump the house of representatives impeachment Juggernaut bore down on its goal on Wednesday evening with the impeachment of the US president likely sometime after nightfall calling trump an ongoing threat to our national security and the integrity of our elections. The House Speaker. Nancy Pelosi Open the debates just after midday onto articles rules of impeachment charging trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. A simple majority vote in favor of either article would result in trump's impeachment. Each moment trump was not planning to stick around for the big moment. An accident sheduled had him heading to a campaign rally. In a small city in Michigan Wednesday evening but trump's fierce efforts to seal himself in a bubble of adulation and his insistence that Republicans pretend away the existence of facts facts. Threatening to pierce that bubble could not divert the reality coalescing on Capitol Hill wearing large pin of the ceremonial Mace of the Chamber. Barashi rose to speak on the House floor. Nancy Pelosi warned that our founders vision of a republic is under threat by actions from the White House is this is tragic that the president's reckless actions make impeachment necessary. She said he gave us no choice. Praising the moral courage of our members some of whom in court political risks by backing impeachment Pelosi announced six hours of debate on the matter has speech was met with sustained applause from her caucus republicans accuse Democrats having vendetta against trump and running. What they say was a corrupt process? While Democrats taunted Republicans for not even even attempting to defend trump on the merits trump is set to become the third president in us. History to be impeached joining Andrew Johnson in eighteen sixty eight the Bill Clinton in nineteen ninety. Eight and Richard Nixon who resigned in nineteen seventy four just before he could be impeached with four vacant seats. It's in the house. Democrats who hold two hundred thirty three seat majority would need two hundred sixteen votes to impeach trump berry. Loud milk made a comparison comparison between the trump impeachment inquiry and the trial of Jesus in the Bible. The Republican congressmen argued. That pontius pilot was fair. It's a Jesus.

"It could be a song a moment a movie. Anything we think is the best of the best of the year here are picks on pop culture happy hour from NPR. And we're back and sue house speaker. Nancy Pelosi made a little bit of News as we were heading into the studio here definitely a little bit of capital intrigue now now so in order to understand what happens next after the house in peaches. The speaker of the House has to name impeachment. Managers these are members of the house. Democrats that will serve service centrally as the prosecution in the Senate trial in order to sort of move. The process along. The speaker has to do that. Those are the people that go and technically inform the Senate that the president has been impeached. Very technical it's a process step. It says it's like so Oldie time like they need to get on horses or something but without it the Senate cannot not begin an impeachment trial so Nancy Pelosi tonight has indicated. She's going to hold back on him. Naming those impeachment managers to see what Senate Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer can come up with in terms of a Senate trial indicating that they WANNA make sure. It's going to be a fair trial Don't know who's going to be the judge the the metric of that who is the arbiter fairness. It doesn't seem like anyone can agree on that right. It's a total. It's been a total surprise in this. There's been some chatter among Democrats that they might do the strategically originally because they don't think there's going to be a fair trial in the Senate but there's a lot of political games being played here and we're GonNa have to see how this unfolds before they had out of town for the end of the week and and there's a reason why Democrats are sort of raising concerns about whether it might be a fair trial. And that's because the the Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell as essentially. He said that's not what he thinks. His role is not an impartial. Your this is a political process is not anything. Judicial about impeachment is a political the decision. Yeah I mean it's not fair trial this is this is politics. This is the the arguments that Republicans were making in the house. You're going to hear Democrats start making in the Senate. The minority parties. Not GonNa like the way. The majority party wants to do things. These are not criminal court proceedings. This is a political process and the lawmakers who run the chambers roles. Great the rules. What's the bottom line on what the Democrats consider fair to? They have to have those White House. Witnesses that Chuck Schumer asked for. What is it that they want? I mean that's the question here in Baluchi did not exactly define what Democrats he is a fair trial. Also this is a little too congressional but one chamber of Congress doesn't get to tell the other one how they do business. That's just not how this place works. So I don't think Mitch McConnell is going to be much interested in Nancy Pelosi's input on how he should run the Senate I think Democrats are going to make a a case that the Senate should call the witnesses that the house didn't get to hear from the two names you hear. Most often are acting White House chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney and former national security adviser John Bolton the Senate as it acts in a trial has the ability to subpoena witnesses and ignoring a subpoena for a Senate. Trial is a quite a bit of a different manner than ignoring a subpoena for Congressional hearing. It seems to me that there are a lot of unanswered questions. But the good news is that we have daily podcast and we will be back in your feet as we learn more about this and of course once there is a Senate trial we will follow it every single day but for now we're going to leave it there and we will be back late late tomorrow night to break down everything that happens in the next democratic debate.

"Twenty twenty and so that's that's part of the dilemma as well but we needed him to be there because we needed to show. Oh that the trump administration is going to is not going to cooperate even when it's outside of the bounds of their authority which was somebody who never worked for him and you know and we know what Lindau Ski Din and maybe I should just stay at hearsay here. The President Wanted Lindau Sqi not not a member of the administration to go talk to sessions and to tell sessions essentially to shut down the Muller investigation that would learn what the what the Muller Investigation nations should really look at was future presidents not the current president so in basically if he didn't do that then maybe sessions should be fired so that right there was part of the Muller reports one of the examples of as Muller called potential obstruction of justice. It was very frustrating that Mahler did not just call it what it is obstruction of justice making it potential obstruction of justice was very eight frustrating us. Well you used the word frustrating I mean people are frustrated and scared and and fatigued y'all this too which is the really important point and our focus is getting people into action because whatever happens with Congress and impeachment or not impeachment or anything we need to show up and we need to vote me people gnashing what do you what do you say to people who want impeachment are wondering why. Congress isn't acting here. How how how can they beat an active participant in sure and you know what it is so important because it's one of those issues again that could demoralize and how as an activist it's really important that we constantly engage people because unfortunately if you watch the TV all you hear about is trump trump. I mean it's exhausting. You would know that we did anything else. You wouldn't pass gun legislation prescription drug with all of the stuff we're doing you have no idea about out and so it's really important as we carry on with with sea change and other other activists out there that they really do talk about what the Democrats Kratz have gotten done because why should I bother voting. Why did I care about getting the Democrats in charge. They haven't done anything. It's very easy to think that when we've actually done tons and and so the impeachment issue is a tough one because we all know that we could impeach him and he's not going to be evicted victim and so we wanNA impeach him because he we want him to leave what we would be very frustrating to impeach him and have him be in the Oval Office the next day and and then use that as his campaign you know I got exonerated. I mean they even went so far as to impeach me. I got exonerated. McConnell exonerated me. You know what I mean. the other thing though that people have to realize and I explain this town hall meetings. We are frustrated because we've wanted him gone since January the of twenty seventeen and we've saw him investigate it for two years and nothing happened but he wasn't investigated by Congress. We have been in power our for nine months now and the first month we were in a shutdown the second month the Republicans really wouldn't make Simon's so we didn't really get going until L. March so from March to September. That's a very short period of time so it's easy to look at it kind of just from your perspective effective and very very frustrating. That's why I think it's really important to talk about the things that the Democrats have been trying to get done and also we gotta get the Senate and we got to get the the White House and so to me. All effort needs to be on twenty twenty making sure that we're out there talking to voters so that they don't get demoralized and say okay well. These people doesn't matter what he does now. He's going to be interesting. It's such so egregious that this whistle blower happen. Let's see if it changes public public opinion because he is his his criminal acts are so massive that will change public opinion or I mean. What did he say he could go on. Times Square and shoot somebody you know what I mean so that's really important about impeachment as well. The public sentiment around impeachment needs to to be there and I know we've talked to a lot of your colleagues from purple areas who are doing town halls and said. It never even comes up exactly exactly what I know that you have to to get to a town hall so the last question is What gives you hope for our future. Oh Gosh I mean you know ironically this. This guy I believe has been a catalyst for activism. I haven't seen in a really long time. How Ironic is that. I mean the worst thing that could have possibly happened after the last election but again when something like that happens. You have to see what you can pull from. It and I think that he has inspired activists. It's all down the line now. It's our job to make sure that that gets sustained so that's what gives me hope. Twenty eighteen gives me hope twenty seventeen with all of the you know involvement yesterday's environmental marks the young people that are activating on on guns but it's our responsibility ons ability to make sure that that goes somewhere and and our I'm saying that as an elected official but it's all of our responsibilities you know we can't view changes. Will I'm GonNa do this for a few years. Then I'm going to go back and you know no it should be. It's a lot of countries around the world where they're much more political than we are. They know what's going on in our country. The Anna on their country and politics is just a part of their life. You don't have to do it full time but you do have a responsibility to know your congressperson is what your congressperson person does and let them know. You know what you like and don't like in in propose ideas so that's my hope. That's my hope well. Thank you so much for a great conversation conversation and all the good advice. Thanks thanks for having me on and thanks for doing this. Thank you if you want to support representative Bass's SEACHANGE LEADERSHIP PAC go to see change change pack dot org and that's S. E. A. C.

"Left and the right so. I'm going to work with the tea party the Heritage Foundation trump administration whoever whoever that are interested in criminal justice reform entirely different reason worried about the money I don't care I mean if we can be on the same page and get some legislation passed like we did with first step. Forty thousand people get released from federal prison then fine. We'll do that so part of it is because Republicans Republicans have realized that this is a whole lot of money that we're spending and remember. They don't like government so you're spending all this money locking people up part of it is because the activism around around criminal justice reform from people who were formerly incarcerated but also other people who just see this as a basic human rights issue in an embarrassment of our country so it's a confluence of all of that and so you have to be sensitive to win moments like that happen and then take advantage of them another big thing that you have on your plate is chairing the CBC yes and I think that's the Congressional Black Caucus Congressional Black Caucus which is in a really unique position and right now with with trump as president how is the CBC working to keep this administration and check well first of all folks should know there are fifty five African America. Actually there's fifty seven African Americans in Congress fifty five or in the Black Caucus. Two of them are Republicans. They choose not to be which is okay okay. and three members of the Black Caucus are in the top leadership in the House of Representatives five cheerful committees which is a huge deal and and twenty two of US share subcommittees so out of two hundred and thirty five Democrats fifty-five being African American and there isn't one of us that I believe that has a district that's all African American so we all represent very diverse diverse districts but that you know because he is such an open races because he has been an absolute instigator of of white supremacist groups in a whole new day than the Black Caucus obviously has to stay on the forefront in every way because he's come in you know we pay attention to some of his corruption Russian but he has dismantled stuff in every federal agency all of the civil rights protections that were put in place over decades. He is tried to systematically system medically a undo and so it's put us on the defensive we did at one point have to go meet with him if you remember that famous press conference when he sent to April Oh Ryan who was the CBC and did she know them. Because of course all black people know each other and so I was in the leadership of the Black Caucus at the time I wasn't sharing airing and none of us wanted to go meet with him at that point it was forty nine of us but you know the leadership went and in that was quite an experience the chair here at the time put this one hundred twenty page document together. That was called. This is what we have to lose because you remember. He said black people have nothing to lose. Why don't we support him so we put this document together and handed it to him and it was pretty pretty amazing meeting because I'm not sure he reads. I don't think so either a million. I bet we thought we would tell him a little bit about black people because he really didn't know nine of our new. Five of our new members actually don't don't represent will there. The black population in their districts is between one and five percent so black people are elected in areas where you know you wouldn't think they would be which I think is a very good step forward. Speaking of people being elected. The house just elected so many younger representatives. The average age just went down by ten years in this last midterm election. What's your working relationship with them. Have you had advice for the younger members of Congress. sure my working relationship is fine and yes. I have tried to be there for them but that's a delicate thing too because you know you don't want to to make someone feel like you know you're young. Sit down. Let me fill your head up with all that. I know you don't WanNa do that. You know they got elected in their own right and and I actually didn't with exception of Ilhan Omar Ilan Omar is the one that I really have focused on which I'll explain in a minute but I didn't for several several months because I knew they were being pounced on but but I've absolutely embrace them and feel like I said I mean I one of my life's missions is focusing on the next generation of leaders. That's what happened with me and and I feel really privileged now that I'm in the position as the elder and then I get to focus you know on on young folks coming up so it's very important to me that they'd be successful. I do think though people have to decide if they really WANNA be in Congress and well because you can run especially an insurgent and not necessarily know what you're getting into and then you get into Congress and it is a culture and it is an environment that is very that is not individualistic so you can have a big social media presence but that does not translate all into support inside of Congress yes and if you want to get legislation done you have to move into more of the team kind of thing with votes caucus and all that right and so ill hon on my my focus on Johan and also Joan Goose who's not talked about very often. The first two Africans elected to Congress so it's very exciting you know Joe Goose's assist parents were refugees from Eritrea on Ilhan of course was a refugee from Somalia so I told both of them when they got elected that I would take them Africa soon as they came in and so I did do that and then of course I was heavily recruiting. Ilhan to be on my subcommittee that I now after eight years have an opportunity to chair the subcommittee mini on Africa because again. I'm thinking in the future I mean I'm not going to always be there. Wouldn't it be how cool would it be for the Africa subcommittee chaired by an African just mace too much sense though that's reporting has recently come out that trump as the Ukrainian leader to help dig up dirt dirt on Joe Biden's son and with how two hundred fifty million dollars in military aid that that can't be legal. Oh no no it's not illegal at all but then I mean we know his criminal behaviour i. He views this thing well if I do it in public. It's not the crime so I'm GonNa go rob a bank lungs. I tell everybody I guess it's okay but you know this happened right as we were journeying so when we go back next week it'll probably be a much bigger issue but you know. I mean I think it's just another example of his of his criminal behavior. In the question is now you know what do do we do he has shown lawlessness and a disregard for the rule of law in every single way. I mean I serve on judiciary this week. We had Lindau Hausky who didn't even work for the administration. How can you claim executive privilege. You don't even work for the administration. I mean and this one. This questions really early in regards to Lewandowski specifically coming from my wife. Can we actually I know there's a little cell in in Congress. Can we hold someone in contempt and get the sergeant arms to put them there or is it would just get overcrowded too fast. I heard about that Joan after the people that could you know we went and I'm by the way one of my challenges is. I'm on judiciary but I'm one of the few non-lawyers so when and we met on Friday the lawyers were giving a presentation to us about contempt and no we did not have the authority to just charge charge contempt right on the spot interesting. I don't know that I can explain it any more than that. Cut and dry did not have the authority to do that. I will I'll tell you that we are still contemplating on what we do vite right the follow up and whether or not contempt enters a little but later but we didn't have the authority to just go right down there and and do that and you know what it's a touchy thing because you know. Do you bring Hausky when you know he's just GONNA act out. I mean I hear. He raised over a million dollars he was you know his tweet in the morning was about hey thanks. I get to go down and Hashtag Hashtag Senate.

"You are failing us but the young people are starting to understand your betrayal. The ice of all future generations are upon you and if you choose to fail US I say we we will never forgive you that was Greta Thunberg incredibly impassioned and beautiful speech to win General Assembly on Climate Change. She's amazing and just outclassing everybody. I woke up this morning to tweet from Donald Trump making fun of her her. I saw that too. Which is you know? Come on. It's I mean look. There's no shortage outrage for Donald Trump's tweets tweets and we managed to not talk about trump a lot on this and this episode is GonNa be a little different trump heavy. It's going to be a very trumpy episode. because we have two main things to talk about and one is of course impeachment the official impeachment inquiry and trump's criminal acts and and we're. GonNa talk about that but we're not gonNa let it overshadow the incredible work that Greta Thunberg and these young activists have done around the climate yet. It's a pretty spectacular what they're doing and one of the things that I love about it particularly the so Greta and fourteen other young people filed a lawsuit against five countries this week over climate change and it's a broad and diverse group of young people and I think that as exciting as as it is to see Greta standing up to trump in the UN and calling us out on our failures as a society to to the world's children she standing on the shoulder of other young giants who don't get the same accolades. Don't get the same attention she's standing on the shoulders of the the indigenous youth who were activated by the Dakota Pipeline Project and and the Black Youth in Flint to were immobilizing into to save their own water supply and what we see here in. La Latino youth activated for years to to get clean air in their communities unity's and so this is an opportunity to say wow look at this young woman but also look at all of the the young people who she was able to mobilise because of the work that they've been doing. That's great point yeah not for nothing. There's a great meam of her. Giving laser. Evil is donald trump as he walks in a room which I just want to watch on a loop over and over again. 'cause it brings me joy a very stressful week. Every face in that room is a mood and hers is the most relevant bats you're right but yes speaking stressful weeks happy impeachment week what we're calling this. I'm I am right now. So here's the thing and it's obviously very serious and we talk about it a little bit with Congress woman Karen Bass later on also. We had this conversation with her a few days ago. A lot is happening moving very fast week. Yeah Speaker Pelosi announced that the houses houses officially launched an impeachment inquiry. This is all happening but we have a very specific job to do around this because impeachment. Mitt proceedings going forward. That's not going to save us and it's still incredibly unlikely that the Republicans are going to do anything we're not. GonNa have sears in the Senate right so what we can do what we must do right. Now is create that public narrative around impeachment and give the people who are coming hang out in favor of it. Give them support re tweet them to make sure you're following them. Call those offices all those offices exactly call all of your representatives tentatives and then have your friends and neighbors and everyone do the same thing because this tide is rolling but they need our support. We have a very key role. Play in this and there are still some folks you might be on a tipping point that need to hear from the public. I think the public narrative so far has been the general public. The voters are ready for impeachment. They haven't seen anything that they feel is worthy of going through the whole process assists impeachment and Democrats are just going to make themselves more vulnerable with but public sentiment is changing with this Ukrainian News and in public sentiment has to change for this to move forward in an effective meaningful way so be loud about your feelings around impeachment. It will absolutely absolutely make a difference the other thing that we need to do around this is we need to keep registering voters especially in these key states. We know trump will do anything to win right. There is nothing he will not do to stay in power and this isn't hyperbole. This is actually really scary you guys he is using in US money to bribe other nations to help it win in plain sight in plain sight. It's like I wanna I wanNA laugh about it. It's it's really scary so we have to win. Overwhelmingly the house is going to do their job now. We have to do our job by reaching out and registering the voters we need in twenty twenty so that means the super states that means these swing states it means the Senate the Senate the Senate right absolutely need to be focusing on that and not let all of this impeachment and presidential stuff. Take away all all the around the room yeah and I think that if the impeachment train continues down this track even. Let's say you know worst case scenario. Oh they don't impeach because they don't have the votes to do it. There are S- vulnerable Republican senators who will have to answer for that in remember if they are not willing to step up and say oh we have all of the evidence we had all the evidence we needed but we wouldn't get onboard well then. You have some questions dancer answer from from some angry voters. That's exactly right so there's lots of reasons to be hopeful right now for reasons for hope one is I really we hope he does get impeached in this move forward even if the Senate doesn't do anything this. I believe personally that this is our moral responsibility to hold him accountable so we'll support our reps. your calls to action for this week or call your raps retweets their post help build public support our other reason for hope. Hope is this great climate March and the work that these kids are doing and coming up after our interview we have our first field segment where I got to go with my daughter and talk to some kids. I hope you you know listen to it because it's so inspiring and really really really cool yeah. We had a great time so calls to action. Don't forget about Virginia seven weeks. I think until Election Day in Virginia still time time we can take the majority and that's going to set up victories that will will not only i Virginia is the second hardest estate the vote in right by the way because of voter suppression and Gerrymandering and all that so those goodell's southern Voter Suppression Dak eight days you yeah they do It's also going to be a big test for twenty twenty the so much to get distracted with right now and for good reason Zain but we can do both right can look at this impeachment with bated breath and in great interest but we can stay focused on the work. We need to do on the ground and that's what we're GONNA. Do you can tweet about the impeachment and you can also go to swing left dot org slash Virginia and find some things that you you can do to to office. They're that's right all right. Let's get going with the interview.

"Hey we love being in the land of enchantment so much a couple weeks ago that we came back to another episode this time sitting down with two members of congress in house a wildlife corridors summit it is a fabulous abuse conversation with assistant speaker of the house ben ray luhan and first term congresswoman deb haaland earlier this year. She became the first native american woman to preside over the house of representatives. We talked about wildlife tribal issues national monuments and a whole lot more. I'm very excited about this. Episode also also very excited that later this week we are going to be live in tucson arizona coming up this thursday august twenty ninth. We will be talking the congressman role gonzalvo the chairman of the house natural resources committee. We've got len ness a for the head of natives outdoors and stephanie sklar the executive director of the sonoran institute. If you are in town please come take a listen. We're going to be at american eat company on south fourth avenue. That's an all local food hall all in market. We're going to be taking over the north room starting at three thirty on thursday the twenty ninth. We'll start recording the podcast around four. Please stick around afterwards words to chat with us. Maybe have a beer again this coming thursday. The twenty ninth american eat company in tucson. The podcast starts at four in the afternoon soon. We will see they're all right. Let's do the news starting with some discouraging signs for the sage grouse. That's the bird whose habitat is being threatened and by oil and gas development across the west in idaho. The grouses population has dropped by fifty two percent since two thousand sixteen. That's a trend that biologists allergists have seen in neighboring states as well in wyoming thirty three oil and gas wells have been drilled in core sage grouse habitat under the trump administration compare that to just eight wells at the end of the obama years a report that came out last month from the national wildlife federation the audubon society and the wilderness society the found at the rate of oil and gas leasing in sage grouse habitat is nearly three times higher on the trump administration than it was after the obama administration ministration cut a deal that attempted to stave off a listing under the endangered species act and in a related story. The interior department has launched an all all out assault on the endangered species act announcing three new rules that weaken enforcement of wildlife protections first interior will weaken protections for species species that are listed as threatened but not yet endangered the obvious result the areas that more species will then continue to decline and end up being endangered secondly the rules change the definition of critical habitat they now lit interior leave out places that are suitable for an endangered species but are no longer her current habitat again. It's not rocket science to realize that if you protect less land you are reducing the chances that species could recover in the future and finally interior can now choose to ignore the impacts of climate change on endangered species. The obvious example here is the polar bear their their habitat is literally melting away so they are going to have to move in order to survive but under these new rules interior wouldn't have to protect areas the the polar bears will inevitably have to move to so all of these changes as a whole make it clear the intent here is to give interior secretary david bernhardt all the leeway he needs to pick and choose which species to save and which to let go extinct if that's more convenient his former clients alliance and of course changes like this will not go unchallenged expect to see lots of lawsuits from state attorneys general and conservation groups we are honored to be joined today by two new mexico congressional representatives assistant speaker of the house ben ray luhan and representative deborah holland. Thanks to both of you for being here on the podcast. Today this is all right. Thanks for coming out to towns new mexico and you're always welcome make sure you get a chance to <hes> get outdoors here and enjoy some of the splendors of the cuisine and once you get hooked on chill. You're not gonna turn back. I never turn down a chance against and yes thank you congress. Thank you assistant speaker for having me in your district. We'll chairwoman holidays. It's it's always use. Well is one of my favorite places in the entire world and not just being here and test drive up here is beautiful and amazing. One one of the most spectacular drives yeah so we're recording this right now. From the sagebrush in there is a wildlife summit going on right now to discuss conserving wildlife migration corridors put on by the national wildlife federation and a host of other land wildlife advocates and we'll. We'll talk more about that in in a minute but i want to start by acknowledging that this is a very special part of the south west here in northern new mexico. You can't help but be aware of the strong connections between the people and the land and water and wildlife here. It is obviously a spiritual connection. That's a part of the the core identity of the tribal cultures and the hispanic cultures that have been here for thousands and hundreds of years respectively actively. I wonder if i wanna start with both of you to talk about how the trump administration's policies as they affect new mexico's land and walter and wildlife do they feel personal to you because of that connection absolutely they absolutely feel personal to me and i take that personal personal emotion to congress with me when i am defending our mine and ben raise bill to protect chaka canyon for example right <hes> against gas and oil drilling for a ten mile radius so that area needs permanent protections my <hes> the my ancestoral homeland part of my argument in committee when we were passing the bill through markup was my ancestors are buried there thinking thinking that that might help people to understand the significance of it <hes> we didn't get one republican to vote that bill through committee so so yes yes it is personal to me when i think about the <hes> gosh the centuries of drought and famine that my ancestors persevered through because they had the idea that they needed to sustain themselves so that generations down the line would move into the future and and be their legacy congressman look the significance of the summit <hes> that has come together here highlighting how we have to be working together not just to protect these wildlife corridors but protecting our public lands and access. I'm here in the community where we are today the the significance associated with the pueblo leaders with house pueblo. If you've hadn't if you had a chance to go visit taus pablo really to pay your respects there. There's there's something spiritual usual magical serene about just taking a few footsteps and stopping and just taking it in the magic of the return of blue lake another important protected areas sacred site and as congressman holland pointed out the significance of legislation solution to protect chuckle canyon in the greater area surrounding it <hes> as deb said her ancestors go back thirty four thirty five generations nations time immemorial <hes> active in eight hundred a._d. Think about the significance of that but growing up and and being able to get into the outdoors whether it was camping or fishing or hiking <hes> getting on my bike <hes> exploring new things learning what to eat and what not to eat <hes> careful when you're out there <hes> but it's about that education and what i appreciate from <hes> the pueblo leaders in friends that i've <hes> <hes> called friends of mine entire life they help me understand the magic of that medicine chest and so while many of us may go into the bathroom war in two of a utility room and open up a door and there's all your medicine and cabinet think about that medicine chest is with the gathering of herbs of healing of the spiritual place that can't even describe the magic of spirituality <hes> the special place that we call home in new mexico but especially here in towse and all of our public lands that were so honored to work together to protect you are both in an unique positions to lead on wildlife and environmental issues as an assistant speaker as a subcommittee chair on <music> on natural resources share real quickly your priorities on the legislative level for new mexico's land and water. Are you mentioned chaco canyon. What else is on on your shortlist right. Well making it impossible for any president to take a pen and chop off a big swath of our public lands another thing right. We want those public lands intact for every single person to enjoy. I like to see a fully fund full funding of the land and water conservation fund <hes> <hes> and you know i have been very very outspoken about no border wall because the border wall in and of itself alf is it hampers the ability for wildlife to sustain itself as well so all of those you know look there's is no one to speak up for the animals and the fish and the plants in the forest we have to do that and and it's pretty obvious to me that we're here because because of our environment right we destroy it that means the destruction of future generations so so those are some of my priorities and and proud and happy to stand up for them. Well i want to thank god chairwoman holland for the work and the advocacy that she brings everyday <hes> she is one of the newly elected chairs of a subcommittee as a new member of the house of representatives. <hes> that's an incredible feat and responsibility <hes> in previous congresses you we don't see new members have that leadership role as one of the leaders <hes> congresswoman holland <hes> brought <hes> several other leaders to new mexico because the honor of hosting german greenhow. Oh who's the chair of the full committee on natural resources alan lowenthal also subcommittee chair <hes> and congresswoman holland chair holland and i did a site visit out to choco where we didn't just take in the history to sacred secred nature of that important place but we also went out to where there was some methane plumes now you can smell it when you're out there but the groups that came together with us actually shared with some cameras that allowed us to see it while we smelled it we had field hearings in new mexico co that chairwoman holland helped lead. We took that back. She led the effort in the house of representatives with the hearing on the protection of chaco canyon <hes> as the assistant speaker. I make sure that i raise my voice when we're in those meetings where encouraging the chairs of the committees to prioritize these important public land <hes> legislation <hes> packages well <hes> we worked together <hes> earlier this year when we pass to john dingell lands package act which personally family authorized land water conservation fund protected over a million acres including right here in new mexico right here in the house <hes> areas right in the real grounded on nor to down with a desert peaks in the oregon mountains and so that's how we can work together you raise your voice.
