several of his children, calling it the art of the steal new york a g leticia adams leticia james scuse me accuses the former president of padding his net worth by billions of dollars. she says that he habitually misled banks and others about the value of his assets. trump's three eldest children, donald jr . ivanka and eric trump, are also named as defendants in this new civil lawsuit. an attorney for the former president says the lawsuit is quote neither focused on the facts nor the law . the house has voted to overhaul and more than century old election law in an effort to prevent future presidential candidates from trying to subvert the will of the voters that today's vote is in direct response to the january 6th attack there on the u. s capitol and former president trump's efforts to find a way around the electoral count. our political reporter greg lee, is here now to walk us through some of these changes. correct so basically, we should point out this was a vote most leslie along party lines, with nine republicans siding with democrats introduced
4:15 pm
by zoloft grin from the south bay and liz cheney from wyoming . as you know, both of them are on the january 6th committee. i want to break down some of what this bill would do so first the vice president's role presiding over this electoral count. this would be purely ceremonial. he has no authority to reject electors from the states. as we saw during january 6th there were calls for pence to reject the count. second it raises the threshold for which members of congress can object to electors requiring the support of one third of each chamber to agree to this objection currently any single member of congress if they have one from the house and one to the senate can object to a state's count. and finally, perhaps one of the sticking points here, states would be required to pick their electors based on election results, keeping them from changing their electors. if they don't like the results. we saw cases like that of states like arizona, where they wanted to submit alternate. votes of electoral college. some
4:16 pm
of these sort of fake elector schemes if you will, you pointed out, obviously all but a handful of republicans voted against this measure here. they say this is a flawed piece of legislation. what are the issues they have with it? some of the arguments we've heard from house republicans as much of what we've heard through this process that this is another attempt to attack former president trump. this is an attempt to take power away from states from the election process and give it to the federal government. and the other argument, though, is from the senate. because there is a similar bill moving through the process there and senators are saying, what are you doing? we already have this process in place. we have a deal with republicans that is filibuster proof, 10. republicans in the senate have already agreed to the terms that are not as serious or severe as it were of the restrictions that the house wants to put on this process, so the bottom line, though, is we may not see any action on this until after the november midterm , doubtful that we'll see any traction. that's right, greg. thank you. mm hmm. president biden spoke to the united
4:17 pm
nations general assembly today and delivered a harsh message to russian president vladimir putin about russia's war against ukraine. the president called the seven month old invasion of ukraine brutal, needless war. global order and said putin is trying to extinguish ukraine's right to exist. president biden cited russia's atrocities and war crimes as he tried to rally more nations to isolate and punish russia. a permanent member of the united nations security council invaded its neighbors. attempted to erase a sovereign state from the map. russia has shamelessly violated the court tenants of the united nations charter. no more important. then the clear prohibition. against countries taking the territory. of their neighbor by force. president biden also accused moscow of making irresponsible nuclear
4:18 pm
threats and set a nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought. the kremlin is now calling up hundreds of thousands of reserve troops to fight in the invasion of ukraine. as russian forces lose ground to the ukrainian army as boxes. greg palkot tells us the movie is being condemned by world leaders. and by some russians at home. russian president vladimir putin ordered a partial mobilization of his country's reserve forces putting more than 300,000 soldiers on alert. it's the first such call up for russian troops since world war two says it's a necessary move as he accuses the west of trying to interfere with russia's invasion of ukraine and its aggressive anti russian policy. the west has crossed every line we hear constant threats against our country and our people. western leaders are calling the mobilization and act of desperation and an attempt to make up for russia's setbacks on the battlefield. putin's latest order is getting mixed reactions in russia state media is

reporting a spike in demand for plane tickets out of the country, while online opposition groups are calling for people to demonstrate. still young, of course, the pride inside me says yes go to war, but the common sense says that i can dye their. meanwhile, putin is also expressing support for referenda to an next occupied areas of ukraine. in his speech to the u. n general assembly. president biden called this a violation of the un charter and of ukraine's rights as a sovereign nation. this world should see these outrageous acts for what they are. putin claims he had to act. because russia was threatened. but no one threatened russia. and no. one other than russia. sought. conflict also on wednesday speech, putin issuing an apparent veiled threat to use nuclear weapons to defend russia in london falcon fox news for
4:20 pm
tical science professor at uc berkeley who specializes in russian politics . professor we always appreciate the time. what what does this effort here by vladimir putin to mobilize hundreds of thousands more russian soldiers? what does it signal do you think about how concerned putin is about the ground that russia has lost to ukraine recently in this conflict? alex. it signals that he's desperate. he really doesn't have any bullets left in his gun that are going to actually make it. you know that are going to make any difference in this war. he can call off these reservists about 300,000, but they're going to be just as poorly trained or more poorly trained just as poorly equipped or more poorly equipped than the soldiers that he's already sent in. 25,000 of whom have already died. and another 80,000 or so then wounded or out of commission, so it's hard to see how this makes any difference on the ground. the fact is, the russian army is deeply corrupt.
4:21 pm
its troops are poorly trained and poorly prepared in this group is going to be no different from that putin feels like he has to do something. so when you did last night, and i watched his speech as he gave it was that, he said. you know, we're going to throw more men more cannon fodder into this thing. he also made nuclear threats against the west. he's been doing this for some time. he habitually makes nuclear threats. it's completely responsible. the only other guy in the world who does this is kim jong, un, the north korean dictator. but he did that again . but these are the acts of a desperate man. and i don't think they're going to make any difference in the war. okay professor we heard from president biden offering those really strong words against president putin. we also heard today. from ukrainian president zelensky at the un he delivered this this tape speech in which he says that russia should, in fact be punished. for the invasion of his country, and he also outlined a five point plan to bring about peace to the region. what do you make of his comments and also this plan that he has put forward? well, i
4:22 pm
think he's just calling for something that is, you know, entirely reasonable and within the realm of common sense he wants to take back occupied territories and ukraine. that is his main goal. that's really his his central coal. um, and i think that it's you know, russia is already being punished to some extent for its invasion of ukraine, and that's part of why it's failing. the sanctions are slowing down the russian economy. it isn't tank yet, but the economy's prospects not only this year, but in coming years are much slower than they would have been otherwise and russia's now on the run. ah putin really again. he's just out of bullets . you really doesn't have much to throw under this war. and what's more, i think it's possible that his power will fail. if you look at how vastly diminished his personal prestige is on the international stage, is meeting recent meeting just a few days ago with c. jinping the dictator of china, and with narendra modi, the prime minister of india, where he really looked like a supplicant like a vassal of china, where
4:23 pm
these leaders were dressing him down, basically for failing and you ukraine. you know, these are these are the this is the kind of thing we've never seen before. is protein being humbled like this and this is starting to take. this is starting to happen at home to his viewed as a vastly diminished ruler who could not win. what russians were told, would be a very easily winnable war. now who's calling up all these reservists , which alarms a lot of people and will doubtless lead to more? opposition to this war in russia and a reduction of the already very low level of popular enthusiasm there is for the war. yeah and we are already to that end, seeing a number of anti war demonstrations taking place across russia and a lot of people who do not want to be a part of this conflict. we have to leave the conversation. they're always appreciate your perspective. stephen fish political science professor at uc berkeley. good to see you. thank you. okay here's something to think about. in a few years, you will have the choice to turn your body into nutrient rich compost. we're going to talk
4:24 pm
live with the author of the recently signed state bill that provides you with another al rnative after death.
4:25 pm
4:26 pm
dead loved ones to the earth. this week, governor newsom signed a bill legalizing human composting. it's a process that allows the body to naturally breakdown in soil for more on this. we're joined by the author of that bill, southern california assembly member cristina garcia appreciate you taking the time, so let's let's start with how the process of human composting works and what makes this more environmentally friendly than a traditional burial or cremation. okay definitely. thank you for having me here. the process currently takes the body and put it into a vessel and the vessel. you have some, which chips and mulch some dirt, and it decomposes that's airtight into the processes
4:27 pm
quicker than if you were just being put into the ground. it takes about 30 to 45 days, and at the end we have rich soil. transact could be used to plant a garden to plant trees can be donated to conservation out there. and so this this this is a more natural way. it's a more organic way. if you do a traditional casket burial, there's chemicals that are used there that leech into the ground and into our water. there's also methane emissions from that. cremation there's carbon dioxide. that's bad for climate change, and there's other pollution here as well. and so none of this happens with with this process, in addition to the soil is a great way to capture carbon, uh, the trees and the plants are another great benefit for our environment out there, and so it's just the all around better on the front end and back end for the environment. obviously this process has a lot of people talking, and it has
4:28 pm
raised some ethical questions, unlike laws that have been passed in other states in regards to human composting the law here in cali if oranje doesn't explicitly banned the sale of soil from composted human remains, or using it to grow food in the future. why not put those limitations in your legislation? hmm so we still have a process that has to go through. this is not going to be, uh, something that's allowed in california until 2027 until the bureau goes through a process and sure we have something that's going to be but respectful of her body's respectful of the environment and respectful of our communities and to the stakeholders will be able to give input as the department comes up with the rules and regulations. for the companies that will be doing this work here. how much of an impact before we go here and we don't have much time left. but how much of an impact do you think this can truly make in terms of fighting climate change? i know that was that was the reason you push for this legislation. well,
4:29 pm
i will say that you know, every little bit helps, and it adds up quickly. we expect that, you know, we just think about it during the pandemic. we had to leave our roles on cremation. we do have a limitation on how much can happen at a given time out there and so metric tons all add up, and so this is not a silver bullet by itself is not going to fix climate change. but we have to think about our fruit, print and all aspects and this is just another aspect. what we could do something that's better for climate change. all right. one more option for what? what could happen after you die? i appreciate you coming on to discuss that in southern california assembly member christina gasia garcia, good to see you. thank you. thank you. well the fda issuing a morning against what it is calling a dangerous tiktok challenge. the challenge involves cooking chicken and nyquil or other similar over the counter cough and cold medicine. why okay? the fda says that that boiling these
4:30 pm
medications can make the solution much more concentrated. and inhaling the vapors could allow high amounts of the drug to enter the body and injured the lungs. the fda releasing the warning after reports of teens being rushed to the emergency room after taking part in this challenge again, one that i clearly don't understand tiktok and procter and gamble, the maker of nyquil, by the way, have not yet commented about this warning. obviously dangerous. also probably taste terrible, right? i just don't understand the point. i don't either, all right. the federal reserve raising rates once again , the quarter point jump the three quarter point jump that has some concerns about another recession. also a new option for people dealing with diabetes. the changes aimed at making insulin more accessible. it's coming u nextxt
4:31 pm
kevin: i've fought wildfires for twenty years. here's the reality we face every day. this is a crisis. we need more firefighters, more equipment, better forest management to prevent wildfires and reduce toxic smoke. and we need to reduce the tailpipe emissions that are driving changes to our climate. that's why cal fire firefighters, the american lung association, and the california democratic party support prop 30. prevent fires. cut emissions. and cleaner air. yes on 30.

federal. raised interest rates for the fifth time this year, the fed hiked key interest rate by another three quarters of a percent in the hopes of cooling down inflation without setting off a recession. the down was down 522 points today, the nasdaq fell 204 and the s and p lost 66 points. fed chairman jerome powell reflected on the state of the economy while making the announcement today about the interest rate hike foxes marc meredith tells us officials are raising rates now at the most rapid pace since the 19 eighties. we will keep at it until we're confident the job is done. the federal reserve is taking another major step to fight inflation, the board
4:34 pm
voting to raise interest rates yet again by three quarters of a percentage point. it's a decision expected to impact businesses and consumers nationwide benefit of hindsight , we can say that the fed was way behind the inflation curve. and has been tightening too little too late. that's being forced to kind of gun it. chair jerome powell spoke to reporters after wednesday's rate hike. he admits the u. s economy, like others around the world faces challenges. stocks plunged in response to palace comments. we are talking about a jigsaw puzzle. that is so intricate and where most professionals in most investors have never had a situation like this. chairman powell recently warned higher rates would bring some pain. no one knows whether this process will lead to a recession or if so. how significant that recession would be a chance, not a big chance of small chance of a soft landing is a chance of a mild recession, a chance of a harder recession. economists and
4:35 pm
drivers continue to watch gas prices prices climbed wednesday for the first time in roughly three months, bringing the national average to 3 68 a gallon in washington. mark meredith fox news and here to talk more about this consequential move by the feds today is financial planner james mcbride of the mcbride group, james. always a pleasure to see you, inflation boy, it is just running too hot. you know, it sure isn't anybody that's been to the grocery store or tried to fill up their car or truck with gas, nose and inflation really is high, and it's hitting a lot of people in the pocketbook, and it's a it's troubling. there's no question about it, but there are some good size out there. for example, the trend and gasoline prices, gasoline prices have actually gone down something like 95 straight days in a row, so that's encouraging . and as i say the trend is your print. but quite frankly, heather, this inflation is not going to get behind us until this pandemic and do supply chain disruption are resolved. they will be, but it certainly
4:36 pm
taking longer than anybody would have wanted. this rate hike affects borrowing costs throughout the economy. what will now be more expensive? well, pretty much everything but your story just a little before it was really good because it showed that one of the big impact is going to be on housing housing prices. as you know, particularly the bay area have been high and the mortgage rates were low, so i bought a lot of hours in. what's going to happen now is as those rates go up the amount of people that are the number of people that can afford mortgage is gonna go down. that's going to have a direct negative impact on the housing market, and the housing market is a huge percen economy's gdp. okay cll, signalr large increases more do you anticipate? well certainly for the rest of this year, there will be more increases in they probably will go into next year . but one of the things the federal reserve has been very good about it saying, look, we're going to be dictated by the data and they'll make their decisions based on the data. and
4:37 pm
although chairman powell is certainly taking a lot of grief from all sides, the federal reserve quite frankly, it's not a particularly good job. it's important to remember the federal reserve has was called a dual mandate. one is full employment. and the other is price. stability for employment has pretty much been achieved. we have unemployment edit 50 year love that's really quite spectacular, and a lot of that is the result of the federal reserve and chairman powell keeping interest rates low inflation has picked up no question about it, but it's certainly nothing like it was in the late seventies and early eighties, where we had 14% inflation. and price stability will be achieved and borrowing costs will go up. but inflation will be controlled and it's going to be nothing like it was like i said in the late seventies and early eighties, okay, labor market, as you mentioned remains strong, but boy still a lot of fears out there about a possible recession. right and some people say we're already in a recession, which is using the
4:38 pm
classic definitions are two consecutive quarters of negative gdp. i'm not so sure about that . and one thing that is interesting. heather is and that's why this is such a great question is there hasn't been a recession at least the last seven that i looked at where there hasn't been significant, even massive unemployment. if we look at the great recession, for example, the unemployment rate was about 5% of the beginning, but it went up to 10% or right now we have an unemployment rate of less than 4% it will increase somewhat, but i doubt it's even when it gets a 5% so the federal reserve is doing a particularly good job of honoring that part of their mandate about full employment, and it's hard to believe we're going to have a deep recession. with unemployment rates so low a job market so tight and you have employers competing for employees, which has had a really nice effect on rising wages. and i think there was wages will stay in place long after this. inflation is behind us. so the federal reserve is doing much better job than people think, and we're closer
4:39 pm
to the end of this recession in the beginning. hopefully you're right about that. james mcbride mcbride group. thank you, sir. thank you, heather. santa clara county sent today it's expanding its met assist program to cover medications for diabetes care announcement came at the mountain view, multi specialty clinic. the program, launched earlier this year provides eligible people and families in santa clara county with a monthly check to help pay for their prescriptions, officials say nearly 120,000 adults in santa clara county live with diabetes. and about a third of them require insulin or other drugs to control the condition. the american diabetes association now recommends these newer medications as first or second line treatment for almost every patient with type two diabetes. yet these life saving drugs cost tens of thousands of dollars per year. hundreds of dollars a month, even with health insurance officials say
4:40 pm
providing these medications will save the county money on treatment as well as improved the lives of those with diabetes. santa clara county's medicis program also covers other vital medications, including asthma inhalers and epipens lord, now for parents, a new study finds some children's school uniforms may not be safe due to high levels of harmful chemicals. the study released today says that researchers found per and polly floral alcohol substances or fast, which are cancer causing forever chemicals in those uniforms. those harmful chemicals are widely used in many consumer and industrial products and have been found in stain resistant school uniforms sold all across the country. all the stain resistant school uniforms that were tested contained high levels of foss similar to what one might found an outdoor clothing. and this is a big worry because one quarter of all u. s skull true children where uniforms both the best and the
