Kim McCallister speaks with Mark Guarino about the Highland Park shooting

Play Episode Listen Later Jul 6, 2022 16:51

Washington Post Contributor Mark Guarino Authorities on Tuesday charged the man suspected of opening fire on the crowd at a Fourth of July parade in this Chicago suburb with seven counts of first-degree murder and pledged “dozens of more charges” in coming days, as reports of his previous contact with law enforcement prompted residents to ask whether more could have been done to prevent the massacre. Lake County State's Attorney Eric Rinehart announced the initial charges against 21-year-old Robert E. Crimo III at a news conference, calling the Monday mass shooting, which also injured more than 30 people, “a premeditated and calculated attack.” “Lake County will never be the same,” Rinehart said. Earlier Tuesday, investigators said Highland Park police had in 2019 confiscated 16 knives, a dagger and a sword from Crimo's residence after a family member told officers he had threatened to “kill everyone,” said Christopher Covelli, a spokesman for the Lake County Major Crimes Task Force.

Kim McCallister speaks with Henry Olson about inflation

Henry Olsen, opinion columnist at the Washington Post If you're having trouble grasping why inflation is so politically potent, consider that Americans who enjoyed a Fourth of July cookout on Monday paid 17% more for their food than last year, according to a survey from the American Farm Bureau Federation. That's a perfect illustration of a poorly understood aspect of inflation: For most Americans, the inflation they actually experience is often much worse than the 8.6 percent headline rate. The official government inflation rate comes from the consumer price index, which measures the prices of a basket of goods that reflect the overall annual consumption of items and services that an average urban household pays for. As a national average, it can never exactly reflect what a particular household faces in any particular city. It assumes that the average family purchases all these goods and services in the same quantities. But that simply isn't true, and it unintentionally hides how high inflation is for millions of people. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Kim McCallister is in for John Rothmann Brittney Griner's safe return home remains "a priority" for President Joe Biden, but White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre couldn't say Tuesday if the president had any plans of speaking with the WNBA star's family. Griner sent a letter to the White House on Monday pleading with Biden to use his presidential powers to ensure her safe return, adding that she fears that she "might be here forever."  Britney Griner's wife said it is “very disheartening” that she still has not heard directly from President Biden, even after the WNBA star — who's been languishing in a Russian jail —sent a handwritten letter to the president, begging him to not “forget” her. Cheney defended the committee, saying Republicans must choose between Trump and the Constitution. “There are politicians in this country beginning with Donald Trump, who have lied to American people and people have been betrayed,” Cheney said. “He consistently has said the election was stolen, when it wasn't.” “I think absolutely there's no question that what we saw happen on Jan. 6 was clearly an attempt to delay the count of the electoral votes,” Cheney said.

As the debate over which history we teach in American schools becomes more inflamed and many of the fundamental precepts of American democracy are under serious assault, it is more important than ever to understand what happened 246 years ago in Philadelphia. Let me educate, inform, and refresh your audience on some of the basics of America's birthday. Ask me—  •Why John Adams thought America would mark its birthday on July 2 •Whether the Declaration of Independence was adopted exactly as Jefferson wrote it •What radically profound, new ideas were stated in this document •How many people signed the Declaration and what became of the men— and they were all men—  who pledged “our Lives, our Fortunes, and our Sacred Honor”  •How many of the signers of the Declaration of Independence enslaved people •What George Washington thought about allowing Black men to serve in the Continental Army •Which two presidents died on the same July 4th on the 50th anniversary of the Declaration  These and other basic questions about Independence and the American Revolution prove that history is more than dates and documents.  Book a live or taped interview and I can bust some myths, set the record straight, and explore Jefferson's “self-evident Truths”— “that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

John Rothmann: SCOTUS handcuffs the EPA & ends “remain in Mexico”

Play Episode Listen Later Jul 1, 2022 36:34

The Supreme Court on Thursday dealt a major blow to climate action by handcuffing the Environmental Protection Agency's ability to regulate planet-warming emissions from the country's power plants, just as scientists warn the world is running out of time to get the climate crisis under control. It is a major loss for not only the Biden administration's climate goals, but it also calls into question the future of federal-level climate action and puts even more pressure on Congress to act to reduce emissions. The Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that the Biden administration may rescind a Trump-era immigration program that forces certain asylum seekers arriving at the southwestern border to await approval in Mexico. Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., writing for the majority in the 5-to-4 ruling, said an immigration law gave the president discretion to return migrants arriving by land to the country from which they came. But that discretion, he continued, did not amount to an obligation. The key provision, the chief justice wrote, used the word “may” rather than “shall.” That provision, he wrote, “means what it says: ‘May' means ‘may.'” See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Clarence Thomas suggests Covid vaccines are developed using cells of ‘aborted children' None of the Covid-19 vaccines in the United States contain the cells of aborted fetuses. Cells obtained from elective abortions decades ago were used in testing during the Covid vaccine development process, a practice that is common in vaccine testing — including for the rubella and chickenpox vaccinations. A group of doctors, nurses and other health care workers brought the case, suing the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of New York in an objection to the state's vaccine mandate on religious grounds. The district court issued a preliminary injunction, but the Court of Appeals reversed it and the Supreme Court ultimately declined to hear the challenge on Thursday.

The Republican Party cannot be both loyal to Donald Trump and loyal to the Constitution,” Cheney said in a speech Wednesday evening at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California. “We stand at the edge of an abyss and we must pull back. We must pull back.” Cheney said she has been motivated to stand against Trump's lies about the 2020 election because of her hopes that her children “will continue to live in an America where the peaceful transfer of power is guaranteed ...
