H. O. M. T. I. L. L. I. S. dot com Tom telus dot com good morning center great to have you back on the Hugh Hewitt show good morning here I'm sure both of the Bosnia is supporters are disappointed about the announcement but he made the right call couple of devastated people out there center last time we talked you tell me your own armed services sea power subcommittee and that you cherish since that time Robert o'brien my friend of that decade plus and former law partner has been named the national security adviser you gotta be chair he's unable as he's been out there urging that the Pentagon take seriously Donald Trump promise of a threat and fifty ship five ship navy what what's your reaction to the Brian appointment I I think it's a great appointment senator Byrd the senior center in this state or are very pleased with that you know we also come in data gratitude because he was involved with the ultimate release of pastor Brunson and his capacity with working on hospice hostage negotiations really think oshi ation so he's got legal experience he's got the both in the government and the private sector he's got you served in the army reserves he's just got a I think a great resumes gonna make a great and that's you not tell me about the North Carolina profile on military bases of course we know got Fort Bragg down there but I think you got a lot more than Fort Bragg I think at cherry point right well we did a you know we got Campbell June which is home to about forty five percent of all the men and women in the marine corps we've got the would get cherry point which is going to be. the one of the major depots for the joint strike fighter particularly to be very up the vertical left but for other variants we've got the New River and then we can't forget is not in the DOD but we've got the largest Coast Guard air station in the United States up in the northeast of Elizabeth that a not to mention our National Guard and one of the most the point national guards in the country we've a got a great military tradition which is why we are the fastest growing battered population in the country about to surpass California for veterans population yeah I got told that every return marine corps general has it in their orders at the got to move to North Carolina you got a lot of my my buddy Mel species is down there he said basically everyone I served in the marine corps shows up in North Carolina once they turn in their papers well they did a you know we've got several commandants former commandants down here a general Amos was actually cheering one of my the service academy selections the to the Nero is not just limited to is not limited to the marine corps we get a lot of men and women that come back and and they're coming back to the area not far from our military installations pine Hurst party out of their beach soon and we welcome them because they're great Americans and all the men and women veterans or come to this state we do it as a complement of the state that gets veterans and military families like we're doing everything we can to support him so senator tell us that leads me to that they all know and I know when you know a continuing resolution is a nightmare for the Pentagon but it appears that's what we're stuck with at least the next month and I really I I cannot communicate how disappointing this is because you did your work the NBA D. is done and the defense appropriation act should have been done what is there any chance that that can move quickly do the Democrats not realize how devastating this is for the military they I I think Chuck Schumer knows how devastating this does and it just goes to show you that doubt that he will go to to play the. political games that he does there was an agreement that included the president on the budget caps they gave five people veto power on anything going outside of the parameters of that agreement and he's basically well just on it and he's putting our military readiness our capabilities of rest our president trump has done more to make sure that we're getting funding out of the Congress for men and women in military work levels are branded as we have been for awhile Chuck Schumer owns responsibility if that starts going in the wrong direction and we're on the cusp of making a very important decision on Iran and and then we're in a jet continue resolution about DOD it makes it is not even to say that make any sense is an understatement it is malevolent. well as you know you know you know what happens when we go into a continuing resolution many citizens will say well they're funding the government but what happened through the whole of the other day if they have to put certain projects on hold because they don't know what would be in the next continuing resolution so while we're trying to stay ahead of China and Russia and many of our adversaries in terms of capabilities Chuck Schumer is basically saying I'm going to put the American people rests men and women in uniform for my own political purposes versus giving them certainty letting them invest and innovate and make sure that our men and women are capable ready and say he's putting at risk in Nancy Pelosi is a co conspirator very much so and I hope when you go back to work this today on Friday you let people know everybody knows what they're up to center tell us always a pleasure remember."
