Takeaways from the Senate hearing on Washington, DC riot
"Faulty intelligence and band communication lead to the breakdown of security during the capital riots. A hearing about the rights underway on Capitol Hill is good policed on that. Joining us live now, NBC radio National correspondent Mike Power Morning, Mike Yeah. Good morning, Joe. You're looking at former U. S. Capitol security officials telling Congress and enjoy hearing yesterday that they did not have sufficient information ahead of the January 6 attacks in the Capitol to accurately predict The scale of the attack. You had testimony from former U. S. Capitol police chief Steven Son, House sergeant at arms Paul Irving and Senate sergeant at arms, Michael Finger and all of whom resigned their posts after the Capitol siege following request from top leaders of both parties. But you also heard from U. S. Capitol Police captain Kardashian Mendoza, who's been with the department 19 years and said that that day January 6 was by far the worst of the worst. In terms of events that she has worked over the past two decades. And clearly what the messaging was here was that while they felt Capitol police and others felt they were prepared for an event, it doesn't sound like they had any idea of what this event was going to turn into. Capitol police chief Stephenson said. These criminals came prepared for war. They came with their own radio system to coordinate the attack. They came in climbing here and other equipment to defeat the Capitol Security features. At all three former capital security officers agreed that the January 6th attack was planned and coordinated. It involved white supremacists and extremist groups. And they did not get enough information from the FBI about it if they got any at all. In fact, some of them son it was there was indicating that he hadn't heard anything about FBI intelligence indicating that this could evolve into something bigger. Harsher greater than what the expectation was, until literally yesterday. That's when he heard about about to be fair. He did resign after the jet the January 6th attacks. But he said during the time there, there was no preparation that based on the intelligence, they believe that they met the threat that was they were prepared for, and now they know they had the wrong plan. There wasn't enough of the information coming from the FBI, even though the FBI sent a report the evening of the attempted evening before the attack detailing various calls for violence next day, but those never got to the proper people, according to reports yesterday. This is kind of strange, because even before this rally occurred, there was word that the National Guard was rated standing by in the National Guard was offered. So I mean, you know, uh, somebody was prepared. It seems like there was a head's up on some level or or maybe that's the worst case scenario thought like, Let's just make sure we've got that kind of back up, ready to go. But even then there were concerns over apparently optics as to whether or not the optics of having a national guard. There was something that was a concern whether or not there was a call made early in the day requesting Help from the National Guard has had sons. You said he made a call at 109 P. M. But you according to Irving, he said he didn't receive such a call. So now you've got senators going, okay? Let's get phone records to verify that somebody made that call at 109 asking for National Guard help and what happened or what their confusion was on some level immediately afterwards because that could be a big indication As to why the guard didn't get out there quick enough clearly for the situation, so there is still more investigation that needs to be done. I believe that there's going to be another one of these coming up next week that will be greater detail That's determined what happened with the National Guard on some level, but at least at this point in time, the indication was Capitol Police didn't have all of the information at their disposal to determine Whether or not this was going to be his violent as it actually turned out, already

It also supervisors mineral resource lands that produced 20% of the nation's energy. Citing previous statements Deb Holland had made about fossil fuel production. Wyoming Senator John Barrasso, the committee's ranking member, set the theme which Republican members came back to repeatedly. Oil production in federal lands and oil pipelines, especially the Dakota access pipeline. By signing an executive order to ban all new oil coal gas leases on federal lands. The president is taking a sledgehammer to Western states economies. Ban on federal leasing could result in 33,000 workers losing their jobs in Wyoming. Representative Hollins home state of Wyoming, 62,000 workers stand to lose their jobs. Holland also faced questions over her appearance at protests of the Dakota access pipeline in North Dakota before she was elected to Congress in 2018. Holland said she went there in solidarity with Native American tribes and other water protectors, who felt they were not consulted adequately before the multi state pipeline was approved. President Joe Biden has sense next the project. Conservative

He'd they aggressively rated each family home in the suburbs. Not telling his family of his death until the police left the home. Hundreds came out this past weekend in minneapolis to protest police shooting and treatment of each family. So we're really witnessing the outcome of four years of trump plus some four hundred and two years of white supremacy right. These acts of violence were really barely mentioned in the mainstream media like white violence and violence against people of color is so normalized that it's basically ignored. Oh yeah it's a white guy that blew shut up you know. I think the headline was like quiet. Life he bombed everything up in the new york times. It was like shut the fuck up so it feels like people are like. Hey it's twenty twenty one and we don't want to talk about white supremacy anymore especially not in the media bright so no sheet. Nope in the how scene they had us to end. Is there a sense that people are desensitized to white supremacist. Violence and domestic terrorism at this point. And let's start with you terrell. Well i don't think there is a desensitization because the way that violence coverage has been america's predicated on black people have a pathology problem and with white people being bad apples. So that is the genesis of american journalism which Herbie say is nothing more than the white man's diary right so it goes beyond people's individual thoughts because ultimately people will adjust to whatever gift right you know we are not the pew research center that scales okay for this number of people. This is what they want to hear. We give them what we think that they want to hear. The mainstream media management me think that they want to see violence conducted by people of color in framing violence. White people as issues of bad apple would not race races. american history. archaeology. And pathology so out to say no this. It's not so much desensitization from a media standpoint. It's about what we feed people in the and people adjusting two in national executives refuse to change the menu. Yeah i mean that's that is what it looks like when you have a white male editor. Who's like yeah. we don't have to cover. That big explosion in nashville was just the white guy who started as a nice guy. And then he didn't rene take us out. I think you can't say that people are desensitized. Because they were never sensitized to it to begin word I always got a little bit of that. You know it's true. If that had been a muslim who had blown up a city block on christmas day we'd be hearing about it seriously. That'd be writing songs. Like holiday songs already terrorizing people in mosque. We know how this goes. We've seen it before you know instead. It's the white one kind of just shrugs and goes well. No identity snaps you know. And that's it. We know that the biggest terrorist in this country in spicer penicillin trials but nation. Just one except betsy you constantly get black and brown saying you know. This is a problem and they go. Yeh we know but don't worry about it. it's fine yeah it shuts it's washed away and that it will happen again and that will be the isolated incident you know. Let a black brown muslim person do one thing and that's all grow try. It's just it's one white guy who was you know having a bad day. Yeah he's he's hanging out with other whites he's the lone wolf a nation that soap built on violence against black and brown bodies. It's never going to be sensitized. Problems with that and what.

"senator" Discussed on The Michael Berry Show
"Senator Marsha Blackburn is guest. She has a new book out. We're going to talk about that in just a moment but first senator, the nomination of Amy. Coney Barrett, announced on Saturday afternoon your thoughts. are a wonderful nominee. I am thrilled that's a president selected her. She is going to make a fantastic justice because she has done such a credible job on the circuit bench and one of the things I think that is so impressive about Judge Barrett is whether you come from the left or the right. There are those who praise her in praise, her intellect, her curiosity, her commitment to the Constitution and the rule of law. As well as praising her strength of character talk about what a compassionate individual she is what a good parent she is. This is a good nominee I am going to be honored to as a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee to work on her nomination through the hearing process and then to vote. To confirm her as she will take the Supreme Court. Bench. You've written a book that was that I guess is coming out now the mind of a conservative woman seeking the best for family and country It strikes me that she serves in that manner it's you could have written this about her not realizing should be our next nominee. some of us at the White House on Saturday for a judge there it's introduction and nomination from the president we're talking about that they said Marsha. We're living this in real time because, yes, the books. Is Very, intentional and I go after the bias in prejudice in preferencing that takes place against conservative women whether they're you're hearing from the media or they're getting it from the work place and we talk about how to respond to this I. Have Guidelines on how to have those tough conversations in how to defend yourself. And your values and how to explain what conservatism is. That's why I wrote A. Whole chapter on the history of conservatives I'm going back to Jerusalem and the twelve tribes of Israel and a good explanation and by the way New Gingrich who is one of our nation's wonderful historians did the word for the book I bet you know this is something that is How to it's a guide. It's a defense of conservatism for women who find that many times and you know they've become really concerned. I know you hear it on your your show from callers they feel like it they open their mouth in the workplace thing they get fired. If they, speak. Up. At. A PTA meeting, they might get shut down or their children might get shunned and they don't want to do anything to adversely impact their family, and of course, we know that the left is going to come after Judge Barrett they're already doing it. They're questioning her adopting two children from. Haiti. they're ridiculing curse or taking her children to church. Every Sunday is if that is something outside the norm and I guess from their actions, you would think that they think. That you have to be an atheist or a secularist to be able to hold a seat on the federal. Bench. You know it's so disturbing because we know that no matter who was nominated, they're going to attack them but to attack her for her personal life and her faith is something that it strikes me if people. Across this country whether they are a person of faith or not do not respond to this and say, as we did after cabinet. Oh, by the way If folks do not respond and say that is off limits and we will punish you at the ballot box for that so that you don't do that again that's the only way to fix this behavior because it's crass and it's awful. It's truly awful. Well you're. Right, it is awful but look what they're already doing to her but this is what's left does too conservative women. They ended it is women more often it's I think conservative women's threaten Democrats. You know I, think they do too and so many times. As I have worked with women around the country they would save Marcia flying does the media denigrate and ridicule and mock us but then you turn around and who are they Gora firing and putting on magazine covers and writing feature stories on websites about it's all the liberal women but they mock us because we're pro-life pro-family, pro religion, pro business, pro military, and a- It just they shut a conservative voice down and I do think you're exactly right. The left is very fearful of conservative women but our country needs. Conservative. Female voices now, more than ever because we know that when they do stand up and speak out, there are more people in this silent majority that is out here who agreed with them. Then agree with the left who is getting in your face and trying to shout you down Senator Marsha Blackburn is our guest. The book is the mind of a conservative woman seeking the best for family and country Senator Lindsey Graham announcing over the weekend that he expects the process to begin formally and publicly October twelfth you think it's realistic that we have a vote before election. Day. Oh absolutely I do for those of us on Senate. Judiciary Committee. We started immediately working on this and nomination we didn't wait to say okay. Exactly what day what time things of that nature we went right to work and we are going to hold our hearings we are going to move judge Barrett through this process, there will be four days of hearings. There is a day for opening statements day for outside groups one day with thirty minute questioning rounds, and the second day was twenty minute questioning rounds, and then we move the nominee to the floor Move them out of committee has that been moved onto the floor for a floor vote. And you expect that to happen that that timeline puts this this vote within just a few days of the election just before the war I think you're going to it around the twenty fifth twenty six somewhere in there I certainly hoped certainly hope. So Senator Marsha, Blackburn of the Great State of Tennessee the book is the mind of a conservative woman seeking the best for family and country come back and visit us. Lot. Thank you so much..

"And to people of Color look how it's generation after generation crushing opportunity. So we're saying young people go get a Go to college. If you have have to borrow money it's okay. It'll pay off. WHOA so I don't WanNa tell him not to go to college? College opens a million doors. How I think of this is it means? We can't just do this blindly so let me take two things that I said I'm GONNA do differently. I've got a plan for student. Loan debt forgiveness but of carefully worked it so we're forgiving debt for about ninety five percent of students and the reason for that is. I found the place ace where we can do it. That will help. Close the black white wealth gap. If you're not careful in how you do this. You actually expand the black white wealth else gap because there are some people out at the far edge who are well to do doctors. For example have a whole lot of student debt could afford to pay it back and More likely white and they drive it up in the drive up the cost of the program so for me it was important to look at the race data in making making a decision on where to draw these lines. So I get to sign that into law. We will close the black white wealth gap for or people who borrow money to go to school by more than twenty points. This is historic but that doesn't get to the root of the problem. So here's here's the rest of what I wanted. I WANNA make it possible for everybody to go to college without having to borrow money. So I've got tuition wishing free college at technical school to Your College for Your College at all of our state universities. That's great I'm expanding. The Pell grants grants so they would apply families with a little higher income and also provide a little more money but to me. That's not enough. I want to invest in the next generation of black leaders. I want to invest in the next generation of black teachers. So part of my education plan is all the things I described. Plus plus a fifty billion dollar investment into historically black colleges and universities so you could go tuition-free three to an historically black college or university whether it's public or private and they would have a special fund just for them and for those universities universities to do what they need to do whether it's invest more in their buildings hire more teachers. They may want more counselors more support staff new dorms but the point is make that investment. And it's partly for historic reasons. You know over a hundred years ago. We invested public dollars in all the state universities then turned around and mostly said to black people. You not welcome here the HPC's as you know were largely built through charity through the black churches people who pitched it a few extra the box and God bless the HPC's but they've been doing the most with the least for the longest time so so partly. I see this historically as saying let's level the playing field from all that we were doing wrong for so long but I also so think that is the investment in the future. This is about how everybody everybody gets shot at an education. How black women and whether they grow up in well to do families or they grow up in really poor families got a chance to get out there to get an education not take on debt and do with their lives? What ever it is they WANNA do one last question that I ask all of the guests? What advice you have even though being a white woman for the Brown girls and we have knob round girls listening out there that say I want to be like her? I want to be a teacher from Oklahoma who's able to become a US senator who's now running for president. What advice you have for those people were saying? I know I can and want to do so much more. Persist persist it is. It's they're always plenty of guys. He'll we'll tell you to sit down. He'll tell you to be quiet. Don't tell you why that's not a good idea. Tell you why that's too hard. We'll tell you why not to fight for that and they mean it only in your your own best interests dear but just quit you get plenty of advice like that. Don't listen to get out there and persist in the the thing is it doesn't mean you have to persist in the same thing. I knew what I wanted to do. From the time I was in second grade I wanted to be a public schoolteacher and by the time I graduated from college. My family didn't have the money for college application much less than me off to four years of university so I have a story that has logged bumps twists and turns and got married at Nineteen. I had scholarship college but got married at Nineteen and dropped out. Thought I'd given up on this. I found a commuter college that cost fifty dollars a semester finished my diploma and became a special education teacher. That was my dream job job but by the end of the first year I was visibly pregnant. The principal did what principals did in those days. He wished me luck and hired. I heard someone else for the job so there I am at home. I got a baby. I can't get a job. I can't get back into teaching at that point so I thought well I will. I will go to law. School found a public law. School cost me four hundred and fifty dollars a semester baby on hip when off three years of law school graduated visibly pregnant. took the bar. Pass the bar. You'll love his part practice law for about forty five minutes. It turned out just one for me but I didn't give up. I went into teaching law. My First Love was was teaching so I traded the little kids that I'd had in special Ed for big kids in law school and just just kept building it. I feel feel so blessed in my life so grateful for the opportunities that or in front of me a college that cost fifty dollars a chance to do something but most of all it was whenever I hit hit a wall I just feel around and figure there's a door here somewhere.

"Senators and flake. We invited you to this event about a month ago. Thank you so much for precipitating, a constitutional crisis to justify our conversation this morning for precipitating and of winning it. And we are here to discuss gravely serious questions and that is the future of the Senate as an institution, and that is the future of the supreme court as an institution and how as you so eloquently said, Senator flake to prevent the country from tearing itself apart at a time when the legitimacy of both of those institutions is under siege, I'm required though by my editor, Jeff, Goldberg Senator just ask them easy question just to start us off. So this is from Goldberg. The question is, what is the state of play today? And what would it take for the FBI investigation to reveal to get you to consider voting against up. Chris. No, no. It almost works. State of play today is the investigations ongoing. The interviewed, I four that we're named and have branched off from there my understanding and are interviewing additional individuals and as it should be, and I hope that they follow leads that come from those first interviews, the what the agreement that we struck, the compromise that we struck that we'd have something that was limited by time as Chris outlined it in the speech. Before we, we went outside to one week and then we would limit the scope, the scope being limited to to current credible allegations. We didn't want to throw something open for allegations to come out like the Rhode Island boat thing that was out and then retracted or or some of the more outlandish ones out there. And we checked with DOJ. They assured us that this was in within what the timeframe that they can do it. We both hope and have been pushing the White House to to make sure it's Folsom investigation, and it's not unduly limited, and I hope they're doing it to find fact. We have not seen any of the reporting yet. We were told that might come back or in real time. And we might have some decisions to make in terms of where they go. My hope is that they as a interview these individuals than immediately follow up on other leads at they might they might have. So we don't know exactly where it is in terms of what it will take. I. I just hope that we find fact, and I have an open mind just like I had in the hearings and we'll see what they come back with. Don't want to prejudge it. Thank you for that. Chris. Some Democrats have taken the position that regardless of what emerges from the investigation, the nominees temperamental conduct in the hearings is disqualifying could anything from the investigation make you favor of capital. What I think is important. Jeffrey about the moment we have here is that as we ground towards the end of Friday's committee deliberations they got sharper and hotter and more partisan and more personal to the point where I think Senator flake correctly perceived that the nine hour hearing the day before which had presented to compelling forceful testimonies to completely opposite sets of facts and conclusions was really having an impact in a lasting way on the credibility of the institution of the Senate. And if the nomination was forced forward with no more further investigation would have a lasting impact on the credibility of the court. You asked a direct question. I'll give you a direct answer. I had announced a conclusion in my view about judge Cavanaugh based on his jurisprudence before we got to this point and and that's. Is not an opinion that is shared by many Republican colleagues, and I understand that. But what I think Senator flake did that was exceptional and praiseworthy is to say, we have to come closer in terms of our understanding of facts. Even though Democrats Republicans will almost certainly continue to have very different opinions about judge Cav enough from a policy perspective, Jeff's are real conservative. He would like not to speak for you. But my strong impression is he'd really like a conservative Justice on the supreme court. I'm not. I really don't want someone with judge Kavanagh's views of presidential power or views of substantive due process or likely jurisprudence around privacy and around the most recent significant decisions by Justice Kennedy. So I'm not going to change my views on judge Kavanagh's nomination based on that. But I think..
