9:00 pm
have that excitement these days in this tv age. but some places like wrigley field or the green monster in boston, some places have that local folklore to them that still attracts a lot of local people. >> thank you both. >> chris, just let me say, the game in terms of attendance is over 30,000 a game. it's over 73 million. it's never been more healthy in that respect. a lot of people like going to games. local tv and radio ratings have been skyrocketing. >> great point about attendance. particularly in the internet age. thank you both. that's "all in" this evening. rachel maddow starts right now. >> welcome back. missed you. >> i missed you. although i liked being away. >> i was going to say you didn't miss me and that's okay. our friendship is strong enough to bear that. i get it. thank you for you at home joining us as well whether or not you missed me. we have a big show including the energy secretary, ernest mow
9:01 pm
moniz is here. we start with this stark bottom line. there's never been a major party candidate who'smen made a run for the presidency of the united states while also being under criminal indictment. we have pulled off a lot of political shenanigans in our country but never that particular shenanigan before. apparently we are about to try. today, rick pac, rick perry political action committee started to ask people to sign up for, see it on the left about the obama-clinton foreign policy and how terrible it. he is trying to position himself as the foreign policy republican candidate in this race. it started off a few weeks ago with him posting this somewhat random video on his you tube
9:02 pm
page. the title of the video is labelled governor perry discusses u.s. foreign policy. you watch the video and at first glance it looks like he is doing a tv interview, a tv interview with governor perry about foreign policy. if you have the patience to watch long enough you will soon notice there isn't anyone interviewing him. it's just him talking in the studio that he presumably rented for that purpose. that was least in terms of subject matter the first sign he was going to try to be a foreign policy candidate. now he has this foreign policy petition which is a way of collecting people's e-mail addresses for use by his campaign. governor perry today also gave a speech which the rick perry folks bill today as a major rick perry foreign policy address. he delivered this address before a school assembly of students at the citadel in south carolina which is a military school. team rick perry, apparently
9:03 pm
lured all of the cadets to the speech by offering free pizza if they came. you could not only see cadets chowing down on pizza before governor perry arrived in the auditorium to give his speech. in the official citadel photographs from the rick perry event you can sort of play where's waldo with the stray piece of pizza that didn't get polished off before the speech but the cadets wanted to save for later. see the guy on the left missed the plate. it is okay. it's still good. only there for one speech. you can still eat it off the floor, right? only reason i spent that much time looking at such detail from the photographs at the citadel today is because the radio of the rick perry speech today was like gold. it was almost impossible to get ahold of for most of the day, even though the rick perry folks billed this as a major speech he was going to give. they didn't provide anyone any video of it for most of the day. rick perry's run for the
9:04 pm
presidency this year does not totally seem like it is ready for primetime. that said, maybe it doesn't need to be. the expectation for rick perry are pretty low. he washed out spectacularly when he ran a high-profile campaign in 2012. his manner on the stump, i think more so now after a lot of coaching than even in 2012 his manner on the stump can be cringe worthy. i don't mean it in a mean way but as a point of political analysis. governor perry is trying to establish his foreign policy in videos and pizza party speeches for students. rick perry is not getting much serious attention. i think because no one is taking him too seriously as a contender. rick perry's campaign team the good friends at rick pac and the rest of them i think in part because nobody's taking him that seriously and not getting a ton
9:05 pm
of attention yet, the folks in rick perry's political world so far have been pretty successful at getting the national press to ignore this honestly truly historic thing about his candidacy. which is the fact he is apparently going to run for the presidency while she under indictment for multiple criminal corruption charges in texas. so far the rick perry folks have been able to pass off the fact he is under indictment as a non-story, some little texas issue that has nothing to do with him running for president. hometown enemies pursuing small-time scores. no big story. that's fine for now. right? that will probably hold as long as his campaign consists of the kinds of hochy, small scale, not ready for primetime stuff he's been able to put together thousand thus far. but that can't last for the long run, right? once he has formally declared as a candidate in the race
9:06 pm
everything will be scrutinized. that has to factor in to the rick perry's camp decision as to when he formally declares he's running for president. i'm sure they would like to have the criminal indictment thing taken care of before they take that leap. otherwise that is by necessity going to have to be the story of him running. that may be why we have heard no hints from the rick perry partisans of the world about when he may make his announcement and properly get in to the race. same deal with a different degree about scott walker. he is not under indictment. this is his former deputy chief of staff who reported to prison in wisconsin last week to start to serve a six-month sentence for felony misconduct while in office. unlike rick perry governor scott walker has never been indicted but there are multiple criminal investigations some open some closed in to his time as a public official. these investigations about his time in wisconsin, honestly follow him around like aluminum
9:07 pm
cans chained to his bumper. one scott walker administration back home in wisconsin resulted in prison terms for these kind gentlemen. one scott walker's deputy chief of staff when he was the milwaukee county executive and another scott walker appointed as a county official in charge of veterans affairs. these guys were convicted of stealing more than $60,000 from local veterans organizations under scott walker's watchful eye and they went to prison for it. the same criminal probe resulted in four other scott walker staffers and supporters convicted on felony charges including paid public employees spending paid public time at work. instead working on political campaigns. which is what the other deputy chief of staff is going to prison for as of last week. one investigation, the one that has already resulted in prison terms for scott walker staffers and appoint tees and supporters that one investigation relates to his first run for governor in
9:08 pm
2010 when he was milwaukee county executive trying to move up to state governor. the second wisconsin investigation, back home which remains an open investigation in wisconsin, that one concerns scott walker's run to keep his job as governor in the face of the big recall effort against him in 2012. that ongoing investigation is about allegations of illegal coordination between governor scott walker and supposedly independent, outside groups that spent money to help him stay in office. again, like rick perry -- and rick perry's criminal indictment problem, it has been pretty easy 0 so far for for the scott walker people to wave them off the story. to convince national reporters it is not worth it to get in to the weeds on this state-based stuff. just a politician dealing with his usual hometown enemies. that can fly for a while. the stuff can effectively stay off the national radar as long as the scott walker campaign for president or the rick perry
9:09 pm
campaign for president is just a probability rather than something that is official and declared and underwachlt it will be much harder to talk the national press out of covering those stories once these guys are formally running for president. which has to affect their decision about when they will announce they are formally running for president. these giels want as many stray hairs tucked away right, before the bright light hits them in the national spotlight. this year so far, there's only one guy who's officially in the race already. that of course is senator ted cruz of texas. this weekend, senator cruz started to run the first presidential election campaign ad of 2016 -- i mean '15. this ad which is religion sen trick, some started to run it this weekend, specifically on easter sunday on fox broadcast, of bill o'reilly's account quilling jesus" program.
9:10 pm
next week we are told expect an announcement in marco rubio. i'm making a huge announcement on april 18th. looks like he will make his presidential campaign announcement a week from tonight on monday. louisiana governor bobby jindal has bucked the tide and signalled if he is running the is not going to make his announcement until deep in to the summer. there's not much of a clamor on the right or anywhere else for a bobby jindal candidacy. maybe the plan is to build up a hunger for his campaign before he delivers and says he's in. for opposite reasons that had been the expectation about the announcement of the hillary clinton presidential campaign. it had been reported not long ago that secretary clinton might also wait until deep in to the summer to formally launch her campaign for the presidency. that made sense at a certain based stra jooej teejic level. with no serious primary campaign to win on the democratic side
9:11 pm
secretary clinton could let the republicans slug it out on the other side and stay out of it she could get her act together, hone her general election message. makes sense, adopt wade in the muck with those guys. let them fight it out and see what happens and who else goes to prison. jump in when you are ready to make the biggest impact on the general election race on your own time and own terms. that's what we had been expecting. today that all changed. apparently hillary clinton is now ready to get in officially at any moment. brace yourself. the campaign allowed it to become known that last week they rent office space for the campaign if brooklyn new york. federal election commission says once you have done something as official as that in terms of conducting your campaign once you have rented office space that starts the clock ticking and you have to announce your campaign within 15 days. so the clock apparently started ticking last week. cnn reporting today that the clinton campaign is already
9:12 pm
started moving top political operatives to new york for the purpose of the campaign. they are working as volunteers but have been promised paychecks soon. how soon is soon? well, the actual timing the date and time of her announcement is apparently going to be a secret right up until the moment that it happens. again, cnn reporting that clinton staffers have been instructed to be ready from monday forward. monday as in today. as in get ready, it's about to happen and you are not going to have any advanced notice of when it is going to happen. wow. the next announcement we know for sure though will be tomorrow from kentucky republican senator rand paul. rand paul's full first name is randall. he has always insisted that it is a happy coincidence his favorite nickname rand is the last name of ayn rand the
9:13 pm
philosophy of who millions of college sophomores outgrow each year. maybe he is rand as in ayn rand purely by coincidence. is ittal a coincidence that he rand paul is going to announce his run for the presidency tomorrow at a hotel called the gault house? the hero character of ayn rand's book is john galt. rand paul will be announcing he is running for president tomorrow at galt house, which is a very nice place. presumably a nice fountain head. rand paul will be the second republican to officially declare he is running for president and be followed in less than a week by marco rubio, maybe sooner than that by hillary clinton. come on in everybody, the water's fine. now they are getting in we will see how they look under the full, hot glare of how hot the spotlight can get in the
9:14 pm
american press. joining us is the political reporter for the louis courier journal. thank you for joining us this evening. >> happy to be here. thank you for having me. >> i know i'm reading too much in to the galt house thing. i have to be. can you tell me i'm reading too much in to that in. >> you are reading too much in to it. paul says that yes he was a big fan of ayn rand when he was younger. that she got in him in to reading dolsieski and others but is a hotel in downtown louisville where a lot of people hold events like this. it is a big ballroom and it's -- logical he would choose this location. >> if there is some sort of chocolate fountain head or if they hand out copies of atlases or anything like that or if there is pronounced shrugging i expect you to come back and eat your words.
9:15 pm
>> i will tweet you immediately and you can invite me back on. >> perfect. all right. so with senator rand paul getting in tomorrow, that makes him the second candidate to throw his hat in to the race. when ted cruz jumped in it was a surprise. no one knew he would get in that early. this is rand paul moving in early. do we know what kind of calculation he is making in terms of getting in now. >> he has not talked about that. you have to think he doesn't have the power that say, a jeb bush has to raise money. the same with cruz. they don't have this -- these big networks out there that have been handed down to them. the network that paul has been handed by his father, ron paul from his presidential run isn't nearly what you would see with a bush sort of organization. so he needs to get in. he needs to raise money early. if he has any chance at all, that's -- i think it was fairly -- i was fairly certain he'd jump in early, in fact.
9:16 pm
>> do you think this is going to be a son of ron paul campaign in any structural or stylistic way? obviously we are seeing press about how he is trying to distance himself from the eck sen tristies and weaknesses of his father's campaign. lou ron paul factor in to this? >> he's not his father. don't make that mistake. he is a much better politician than his father. his father was much more ideological than him. he as we saw with the statement on civil rights that he made on your show shortly after he was nominated back in 2008 when he first ran for -- i'm sorry 2010 when he first ran for the president he quickly walked those back and said no no that's not me. ron paul would never do that. rand sees what he needs to do to
9:17 pm
run a race. he's a lot smarter about what he's doing. he says he wasn't going to get in this thing if he didn't think he would win. i don't think his father ever thought he could win a race he got in to. >> that's right. he was running for reasons other than winning, in part to build a huge national network. it will be interesting to see rand paul tap that. one question for you, the quirk in kentucky law that says rand paul can't run for senate and president at the same time. he is trying to get that changed. what is the status of that? >> looks like the republicans will do a caucus for the presidential primary, or primary for the race. the only race in kentucky you can do in a caucus. looks like they are going to move forward with that which solves the problem for the primary season. hen then he would only appear on the ballot as a candidate for the u.s. senate. the problem comes then in november because kentucky has another quirky law.
9:18 pm
that is that unless you die, are disabled or are ruled ineligible to run, you can't drop off the ticket -- off the ballot after the primary election. if you do your party doesn't have the opportunity to replace you on the ballot. so what you would be left with is no republican running or potentially a republican running only as a write-in candidate. that puts this seat at risk if rand somehow gets the nomination for the presidency or gets on a ticket. now, i'm certain will be a suit filed at that point in which paul argues that kentucky's law that prohibits him from being on the ballot as both senate and presidential candidate or vice presidential candidate, is unconstitutional. you know, that's a -- i have
9:19 pm
some people who think the paul campaign could win. that others tell me no. they think that kentucky's law is fairly solid. it is a risk i'm certain the republicans here in kentucky are concerned about. >> yeah. that's fascinating. the idea if he gets the nomination as vp or president the republicans could give up a senate seat effectively almost by default. joe gert thank you for being here. >> happy to. >> a lot more ahead, including how refusing service has become a lucrative cottage industry in a couple of states an the u.s. secretary of energy is joining us for "the interview" tonight. stay with us.

okay. this is the university of north carolina chapel hill. one of the original so called public ivies chartered in 1789. a century later they added on a school of medicine considered to be one of this best in the country. congratulations on that north carolina. one of the reasons that high-end medical school students around the nation choose unc for they are training if they can get in, is because if you want to be an obstetrician or gynecologist their ob-gyn program is one of the best in the south.
9:24 pm
as part of their training they offer a highly regarded fellowship in family planning. and you can see where this is going, right? because here's north carolina with this incredible educational inheritance, what has been a world-class medical school which includes excellent ob-gyn training, great family planning fellowship but the same state, north carolina has recently acquired a super activist republican state government. republican governor pledged he would not sign new abortion legislation as governor. he has broken that pledge. now more son the way. republicans in the legislature have passed new regulations designed to close north carolina clinics. and now they are working on legislation to limit the types of doctors who are allowed to do abortions in the state, to triple the number of days women have to wait before the state would allow them to have an
9:25 pm
abortion and they want no more training on how to do abortions at that world-class best in the south medical school. no training on how to do it. no procedures performed at the hospital, which means the north carolina legislature and the state's republican governor may be about to unaccredit unaccredit their state's flagship medical school program. university of north carolina says if the republicans in the state legislature and the governor do this thing, if they pass this bill it could could put their top-rated program at risk of beingen an uncredited program. part of being an accredited medical school, you have to offer ob-gyn residents the opportunity for hands on abortion training as part of their program. you don't have to do it as a resident but you have to have a chance to do it them state legislature is trying to make that impossible at unc. the lead sponsor of the bill has a theory of. this she thinks concerns are
9:26 pm
overblown and thinks she knows better than the medical profession and knows there is no need for anyone to train on this kind of procedure in this kind of medicine because people can figure it out on their own. they can improvise when it arises. quote, there are opportunities for doctors to learn this. abortion physicians learn from all kinds of training, spontaneous abortions, miscarriages, sometimes you learn to act in an emergency situation. there are other options. ." in an emergency you just learn how to act. doctors will just figure it out as the emergency unfolds. take a number. she also says the criticism is unwarranted. that north carolina republicans seem to have plenty of time for anti-abortion legislation but not so much for bills on the subject of i don't know jobs jobs, jobs. he says quote i'm an advocate for jobs but we can do a lot of things. and actually when we can have a few more little taxpayers born
9:27 pm
why not? yes, why not put the crown jewel of your state's higher education system at risk? here's the amazing medical school we have. let's make sure it's -- this bill is still in the early stages but could come up for a committee vote as early as wednesday. watch this space. you're selling the mitchmobile!? man, we had a lot of good times in this baby. what's your dad want for it? ..like a hundred and fifty grand, two hundred if they want that tape deck. you're not going to tell your dad about the time my hamster had babies in the backseat, are you?! that's just normal wear and tear, dude.

sunday dinners at my house... it's a full day for me, and i love it. but when i started having back pain my sister had to come help. i don't like asking for help. i took tylenol but i had to take six pills to get through the day. so my daughter brought over some aleve. it's just two pills, all day! and now, i'm back! aleve. two pills. all day strong, all day long. and for a good night's rest, try aleve pm for a better am. denver international is one of the busiest airports in the country. we operate just like a city and that takes a lot of energy. we use natural gas throughout the airport - for heating the entire terminal generating electricity on-site
9:34 pm
and fueling hundreds of vehicles. we're very focused on reducing our environmental impact. and natural gas is a big part of that commitment. when they dropped the first atomic bomb on earth, they did not drop it from a plane. they instead built this 100-foot tall tower and they hoisted the giant thing up to the top of the 100-foot tower. they apparently put a bunch of mattresses on the ground on the bottom of the tower in case they dropped the bomb while trying to hoist it up there. oops they didn't accidentally
9:35 pm
drop the bomb. they exploded the bomb at the top of the tower. the first explosion of it kind ever on earth. the trinity site in new mexico the site of the first atomic bomb explosion. it was judged a great success. the big portly general, leslie gross, robert oppenheimer in his fe dora there got it done them manhattan project did what it was supposed to do. it was 70 years ago this summer july 16th 1945 when they set off the first nuclear blast. less than a month later they used them in war. a bomb of that type a plutonium based nuke was dropped on nagasaki and hiroshima. the first test was july 16th. the first deployment in war of an atomic weapon august 6th. just a few weeks later. and now every year the trinity test site where humans blew up the first atomic bomb on earth
9:36 pm
that site opens to the public but just for one or two days a year. this past weekend is when it was opened for 2015. apparently more people went to the trinity test site this weekend than have ever gone out there before. it's way, way out. there it is in south central new mexico north of el paso texas. the "new york times" reports more than 5,000 people trekked out there this saturday for opening day at trinity. that's a record. more people heading out there, 70 years on than ever before in the history of that site. maybe that's because this year is a round number anniversary for trinity, 70 years since the first atomic bomb was set off there. but i have to wonder if it is also possible the america people have nuclear explosions on the brain right now because of what is going on in the news cycle. >> we know that a military strike or a series of military strikes can set back iran's nuclear program for a period of
9:37 pm
time but almost certainly will prompt iran to rush towards a bomb will provide an excuse for hard liners inside of iran to say, this is what happens when you don't have a nuclear weapon america attacks. >> president obama speaking with "new york times" columnist tom friedman for the framework on a deal that has been negotiated with iran to trade away the most dangerous parts of their nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of the long-term hard-core international sanctions that have isolated that country internationally and crippled their economy. we knew the deal was getting serious when they pushed past the first deadline and stayed up all night working, instead of coming home. we knew the deal was really serious when the iranian and -- side put their high-ranking nuclear physicist at the top of the talks. for iran that was -- and for united states that was energy
9:38 pm
secretary earn nest moniz. whatever decides moniz and salhi they are nuclear physicist and went to m.i.t. together in the '70s and to have them at the table maybe why the framework document released was so more specific, way more than anyone expected. iran to drop to 6,104 centrifuges, all of which will be rather hoopty model from the '70s. iran will not enrich uranium above 6.7%. it will be 300 kilograms, 97% less than what they have on hand right now. so no there's not total specificity on when and what sequence iran will get out of its sanctions and no detailed explanation of how it will work in practice for the inspectors to be aluhoodedlowed in to iran's
9:39 pm
facilities and what term. it is a framework but more than most people expected at this stage. the political reaction to it is -- but nuclear expert reaction to it is honestly impressed. maybe that's what happens when the scientists help make the deal instead of just advising the diplomates on what deal they ought to make. it's particularly nice when it comes to the administration to build support for the deal they are able to make available to the press somebody who can actually answer the specific questions, even technical questions that we have about the deal and what it would mean. joining us for "the interview," is our energy secretary ernest moniz. thank you for your time tonight. >> pleasure rachel. >> so iran has always maintained that its nuclear program was purely peaceful. it wasn't planning to build a bomb. from what you know of their nuclear sdooins science do you
9:40 pm
think they were keeping open the path to a bomb? i know you believe the path is now closed with this deal, do you think they were trying to keep the path open? >> certainly we would not be in the situation with the sanctions on iran if there weren't considerable suspicions in the international community about their programs possible military dimensions and of course they have not cooperated with the iaea in terms of answering those questions. but as you said the whole point of the framework today is we believe we have -- or we will have blocked when the agreement is final, both uranium and plutonium pathways to a possible breakout scenario. >> in terms of the plutonium pathway, here's the thing that worries mechl i'm a complete layman when it comes to nuclear issues but the site they built secretly in to a mountain i know in the framework they don't get to bring material there,
9:41 pm
they don't get to run centrifuges there. but the sentry fudgecentrifuges will be there on ice. they say they don't produce fuel rods for the plutonium pathway. i think of that site and the inherent inaccessibility. i worry there will be centrifuges there. i worry they could do r&d there they are otherwise not supposed to be doing. >> the agreement would block that pathway. first of all most of the machines that would be left there would be inactive. they would not be as we say spinning at all. most important, you have already said, no uranium will cross the threshold if you like in to to fordo. no enrichment no enrichment r&d and more importantly, as is the case throughout the agreement,
9:42 pm
there will be continuous surveillance by the international atomic energy. so if there is any attempt to violate the agreement, they would be in breach and we would start the process of for example, restarting sanctions, or taking other actions. >> in terms of the details of those inspections that continual monitoring of what they are doing -- and there are so many parts of this in which they have agreed to be monitored. were you involved in the detailed suggestion discussion about how those inspections, that monitoring will work? it seems to me thaet that's the sort of thing that could be source of teng small escalating fights back and forth. it seems the devil is in the details there. >> for one thing, of course the iaea which i have mentioned several times will be in the lead in terms of those inspections. the agreement or understanding already allows the iaea to use
9:43 pm
the most advanced technologies. of course cameras, but also all kinds of sensors, radio communications from seals if they are tampered. that will be known essentially immediately. make no mistake, all of these questions have access and transparency to inspection are absolutely key to the agreement. the level at which we will have those inspections is unparalleled. it includes the entire supply chain, going all the way back to the iranian mines, all the way through the final facilities some transparency access is what we rely upon in addition to the physical constraints we have put on what they can operate and how much uranium they can have as a working stockpile. >> from a perspective that could be understood by our general viewers and by me again, a layman on these issues. one issue i was curious about, that i know you can answer is
9:44 pm
the type of centrifuges iran will be allowed to keep as part of the deal. 6,000 centrifuges but only one particular model the ir-1. my understanding is that is 40-year-old technology. they are not advanced centrifuges, as centrifuges go. what are those machines like compared to the machines used in the u.s. or elsewhere in the world? >> there's a measure of the capacity of each of these machines. as you say, this is first generation to perhaps be generous. a typical machine being operated in the nuclear power sector in the world would be many tens of times more powerful. >> does the fact that iran is not destroying or getting rid of more advanced centrifuges mean we ought to worry about them employing them again in the future? was there an option to take the machines away from them? >> the long term it is clear if

they want to be able to supply fuel for nuclear reactors they will need more powerful machines in the long term. it was very clear that being able to carry on research and development was absolutely central, if there was to be an agreement. however, what we have done is we have certainly stretched out that time line very, very considerably. they were operating already already significant numbers of machines of the next generation. those facilities that collection of machines, they are called cascades will actually be taken down and put in to monitored storage by the iaea. >> energy secretary ernest moniz, thank you for helping us understand this deechl i have to say, we don't always get high-ranking administration officials to come and explain things on tv. i'm happy having you here as

comcast business. built for business. world dutch shell made a disastrous stab of drilling for oil in the arctic. one of their drilling rigs ran aground and started to drift before catching fire. that is one of them. you don't want to know about the other one. but shell still very much would like to be drilling in the arctic, even though they keep making it clear they have no idea how. last week shell cleared a major legal hurdle to get a second run at the arctic. the interior department reaffirmed the leases they need to do it which gives them the go-ahead to start trying again and shell has its ships and drilling rigs on the way north. one is called the polar pioneer and it is on the way across the pacific ocean. it is headed for seattle as a
9:51 pm
way point before it turns north and arrives in the arctic. over the last few days the polar pioneer, as it traveled across the pacific ocean has had some company on the open sea. there's a greenpeace ship called "the esparanza" that has been following it 5,000 miles now. they started in malaysia. the greenpeace folks have been tweeting pictures of the rig as they have been following it and putting up photos and messages showing themselves the greenpeace crew gearing up for something. they posted this video to you tube without explanation. it shows six crew members from six different countries from the greenpeace ship suiting up with rocks and rock climbing equipment which is weird out 0 in the middle of the open ocean. today at dawn about 750 miles northwest of hawaii we found out what they were doing with
9:52 pm
the rock climbing gear. the six greenpeace folks got suited up even more than we seen in the videos and they did this. they boarded. think they scaled the 38,000 ton polar pioneer drilling rig using ropes and pulley and set up camp under the deck and unfurled the baern opposing drilling if the arctic. greenpeace says they plan to hang around as it were greenpeace says they have enough supplies to last several days hanging off this drilling rig. they have the equipment they say to allow them to communicate with the outside world as they squat on this rig in the open ocean. they do not plan to interfere with the navigation of the vessel or the operation of the vessel while they are up there, but they plan to stay. shell is not happy. shell spokesman said today the protesters boarded the vessel illegally. the spokesman said they are jeopardizing the safety of the
9:53 pm
crew on board and themselves. shell is very motivated, for obvious reasons, to get the rig and the rest of the fleet to the arctic as soon as possible. this is their plan for years and they keep screwing it up. but as of tlont is a motivated, determined group of protesters that does not want to let that happen. and for now they are stuck like a barnacle on the side of shell.

9:57 pm
the kids were getting away with way too much rambunctious inappropriate behavior and tearing up the lawn at the capitol. to congress pass ed a literal, hey you ge kids get off of my lawn bill. this is before jm squm was there. it shows nothing changes because these days congress will not let children go sledding on capitol hill. back then n 1876 congress would not let children roll eggs on capitol hill. the reason why we have an easter egg roll even in the face of that law is because an old softy of a president, named rutherford b. hayes decided if congress was going to kick the kids off of their lawn herk would move the easter egg roll to the white house lawn and let them have the easter egg roll there. ever since, the easter egg roll every easter time it has been the most attended events.

this year's festivities were held today. it is a surprisingly large event. it goes on for a really long time. it sorts of waves of children as far as i can tell. what i learned about today's event is it was 30,000 kids in all which seems almost unbelievable but that's what i have been told. the day included not just easter egg rolling but basketball between kids and nba players and the president. turns out if you are president of the united states you have to be careful when you say you need a basketball. because people hear the president of the united states "hey i need a basketball" and this is what happens. >> the president needs a basketball. everybody throw one at ail all at once. all at the same time. president obama played inadvertent dodge ball today.
