Why China’s Move to Rein In Hong Kong Is Just the Start

"China's move to exert greater control over the semi independent city of Hong Kong caused more turmoil over the weekend does protesters to fide social distancing rules and clashed with police who fired tear gas and a water cannon arresting at least one hundred eighty people critics of. Beijing's move to impose a national security law on Hong Kong. Say that it is an attempt to stifle descent putting an end. The city's independence. The White House said yesterday that China will likely face sanctions for its actions in Hong Kong. So admiral the China is becoming more aggressive by day. Fairly remarkable if you look at it just in recent history that they are responsible for the unleashing of a pandemic that has wrecked the world. Economy killed So many people. We don't know where that death count is going to end up and instead of being back on their heels or working aggressively for a vaccine or are reaching out to the world community. They are actually Acting more aggressive whether it's toward Hong Kong toward Vietnam or even in the concentration camps inside their country what what is going on what. How is the United States failed in its response to Shave Power? And why in the world can we do moving forward? Let's start with the premise. Here let's go back to twenty one thousand nine hundred twenty nineteen teams like a long time ago. We already had a rich basket of disagreement. China South China Sea huge body of water. China claims it in its entirety. Five G. The network controversy as you mentioned the territorial disputes around the edges of the South China Sea with Vietnam the Philippines Taiwan additional pressure on them trade and tear disputes. So we have this very rich. Unfortunately basket of disagreement. Now you drop a nuclear bomb in the middle of that which is called Kobe. Nineteen irresponsibility of the regime in allowing that to get into the wild so to speak. And so you really have this witches brew of relationships and Newsflash. It's occurring during an election year in the United States in which the trump administration predictably is going to maximize the ability to use China. Like opinion OUGHTA and beat it for electoral advantage. So terrible fact pattern. At the moment I think the real question you nailed it show is. What do we do about it? And I'll tell you three things very quickly. I we need a strategy that means not just episodic responses but thinking about diplomacy economics military deterrence bringing that Inter Agency sensibility to the challenges of China. Secondly even more important. We need international coalition. That's all of our allies. In the Pacific and many Japan South Korea Australia New Zealand Malaysia Singapore Thailand be at Phnom Increasingly. We need to internationalize the response to China and that includes the response to co did in third and finally we need to recognize. We've got a bend this relationship with China. We've got to change the terms of it. But we don't want to break it. I E get ourselves stumbling into a Cold War. It's going to be complicated and from now to November is going to be a very difficult stretch water. Well as you talk about. Strategy the United States needs to develop a long-term strategy. We just need to start by having a coherent message to send to the Chinese. We've been so erotic if you look at the president's fawning praise of President Shea and of course we always talk about what he said on January twenty four th when he thanked president she for his transparency and all the great work China was doing. That was a bizarre tweet to send out at the time. This is also the same president. Who who saluted she for consolidating power in the past has more power than anybody since Chairman Mao in that country? But you have that fawning praise one moment Max moment you have a continuation of these erratic trade skirmishes where the president doesn't have an overall strategy and then follow that up with occasional master tweets and insults toward the people of China just because seems to be checking that off his list for the campaign. It's really hard to figure out where Donald Trump stands when it comes to China because any any attack of China any critique of China is usually followed up by the president talking about what a wonderful leader Person President Xi is exactly and reference our earlier conversation. What do you want leaders to do? You want them to bring order. Out of the chaos. He want them to have a plan. You want them to communicate in steady waves and what we don't want to do with China is treated like an on and off switch on the wall that we turn on. Oh we love China. Then we turn it off ups. We're going to get into a war with China. We've got a dial it in. It's like estate like the dimmer on the wall. In your dining room we have got to be able to have a coherent strategy. That is steady and finds balance not this jagged on and off. Switch all the time and again. I'll close on this Henry Kissinger said late last year that we were in the foothills of a Cold War I think we are continuing to ascend that mountain. It is a mistake for both nations. We need to confront where we must when the behavior warrants but we ought to try and find ways to cooperate where we can confront where we must cooperate where we can build a strategy Admiral Stavridis. Thank you very much for coming on this morning

Admiral James Stavridis The Voyage of Character

"We're honored to have our guest today. US Navy Admiral James Stavridis he's the former Supreme Allied Command under obviously US Navy Admiral is currently operating executive at the Carlisle Group. Admiral Stavridis thank you so much for being with us what a pleasure to be in Texas with you and our Co host today is once again the Colonel Matt Amazon who's Director of the Military Service Initiative here at the Bush Center Matt thanks for doing this again Andrew thanks for being here Admiral thank you for bringing the cool weather Dallas yeah one hundred degrees pretty much the got here now it's beautiful exactly end last night I was greeted with the fire works for the biggest lightning storms have seen which delayed my flight for almost five hours so never let it be said that I didn't fight my way through thunder in lightning to get to the Bush Center. Well we can't thank you enough we know you're busy and we we're thrilled to have you here so we wanted to start with something a little and we heard that you are a lover of Fountain pens and old maps is that is that true it is and I think it's interesting too speculate on why those two interests emerge it's going to be the next question okay fine so a one is I loved right I've written now nine books my new book sailing true North comes out next week and I am also someone who loves reading and anything that touches Writers is is important so yeah I have four hundred fountain pens believe it or not wow yeah it's it's a gentle madness and some of them are a little on the pricey side but some of them I find in flea markets antiquarian stores I can restore pens nice kind of hobby and when I pick up a fountain pen and I think that it's from the nineteen twenty s or nineteen thirties and I think of all the writers who have had l. debt pen and what they wrote and I kind of ruminate on all that so yes I love fountain pens I think maps are probably more obvious because of spending so much my life at sea and if if you really look at a map of the world of course seventy percent is water and I spent nine a half years on the deep ocean if you add it all up day for day out of sight of land so for me maps in that to quote Tennyson that untravelled world whose margin fades forever forever when you move has always intrigued me so I have maps the earliest I have in my collection is from the very early fifteen hundreds it's a map of Marco Polo's travels Oh wow and I also have maps and charts for your listeners the difference between a map and a chart is map is land chart is the see I have both maps and charts and I have many of the short what's that I use to navigate on over my years at sea from the Persian Gulf from the Mediterranean from the Caribbean With a pencil line sketchy on them and I also have a lot of maps from Afghanistan from my time as supreme allied commander in NATO every time I would go there the staff would prepare a very detailed map of where we were going and I would mark that up as we went around I have a map of the of Libya from the Libyan campaign in two thousand eleven showing many of the strikes we conducted so it's an interesting collection might pens in my maps I'll conclude however by saying that your research missed that being I collect the most man and it's books I have five thousand books which much to my beautiful wife Laura's uttered may who's sitting here with us indeed a military family where you move every two to three years so you are unpacking packing and boxing and shelving five five thousand books I got some work to do there Sir I'd love to hear your thoughts on when you say maps and charts and you were provided maps Afghanistan and things like that but sometimes the the difference between what a map in front of you displays in the actual ground truth an example being I think in in Jordan they call the northeastern portion that border Winston's hiccup when he was drawing the border so your observations over time of how maps can be represent unitive of ground truth or otherwise specifically in Afghanistan as well I think generally it is otherwise a map is so sterile in the end it can't can vader you events on the ground and I'll give you a very practical example these days I do a lot of talks where I speak about variety of international subjects and when I talk about his Ukraine and I'll start by showing a map of Ukraine and you know it's a kind of an interesting country it's on the Black Sea of course there's this dangling chunk of it hangs down like a like a pouch of rice that is Crimea and you can look at that and think man okay it's a little peninsula that juts into the Black Sea you cannot imagine the war's over two millennia the fighting over Crimea the negotiation of the treaty there you mentioned Winston Churchill a moment ago the end of the Second World War effectively conducted there in the palace it's it can't convey anything so what I will do for an audience is I'll show a map of Ukraine and Crimea and I'll say here's Ukraine it was invaded by Russia Crimea was annexed by Russia and I'll say but let me show you what Ukraine looks like today click and the next slide is a quad of combat it's destroyed buildings its artillery piece is it's it's four brutal photographs and I'll say to the audience that's what Crimea looks like that's what Ukraine looks like it's a war fifteen thousand people Villeda died there so to your point leaders statesmen diplomats military officers must refrain from allowing the sterility of a map and the simple act of gliding your pencil across it to think that you've solved the problem because you had I've not so admiral I want to start by talking about your book which Time magazine recently named a must read for October sailing true north ten admirals and the voyage of character I meant when I when I sat down to read it I wasn't expecting to have a book that I was going to personally be able to you take the lessons from and apply them to my career I thought it'd be learning about learning some history and learning about the the voyage of the fares and this is actually thing that I can apply to in my daily life did you know that was going to be the end result when you sat down to write the book I certainly hoped it would and the guide post in my mind was an ancient book plutarch's lives which is written by Roman about leading figures in Roman society and he hoped that by doing that he would illuminate lessons of character which readers could apply to their own lives I think at minimum level of entry it is a book of history you meet these ten interesting historical admirals going back two thousand years each one is a chapter but as you know having having read the book the power of it is seen how they confronted the inner challenges so you know we are awash in books of leadership leadership is the influence we exert over others character uh is how we lead ourselves that inner voyage which I would argue as vastly more difficult than the simple act motivating groups people in the idea of the book is to have some case studies that readers can say you know I face that kind of challenge in how did that seafaring admiral respond to it and then draw some lessons and they're both good and bad lessons in the

"You'll see us right there this. We're in a position where we have the most agile venture capitalist in the world. It's not like we're the bad guys we're we're we're the best at doing it. Our workers are literally three times as productive as workers in the far east. Siemian Asia and their three times a productive. What are we worried about? Exactly Joe Biden, the is to a perfect time to point out. There's nothing to worry about China. Joe Biden, doubling down on his China policy, which is nothing to worry about Dana Perino year been the China understands what challenges are. In fact, data. What were you doing with the administration when the three thing happened, and they forced one of ours? Surveillance planes down. I wasn't quite there yet was that before nine eleven. I came right after nine eleven. So I was living in San Diego. But certainly, that was a that was actually one of the things I remember though from President Bush's book, he talks about how it was. Then he realized that our military and their military had no way of communicating for some like to defuse conflict, so they set up for lack of a better phrase. I don't know the technical term, it was like a one eight hundred number. So like you. Basically. So that, yeah, that was that was a test right away. I get what Joe Biden insane in that. He's trying to say that America's ingenuity and our abilities and arcade abilities, our talents, our creativity are better than the Chinese. Okay. That's true. But I think what he failed to do is to say they have a serious threat, and that they are now this firepower, but they've been able to use their, their states that are their state government sponsored companies to compete against hours, which are not state sponsored and with the five G the G that, that discussion is fascinating to do you know that there is somebody who's very high up in the tech world. Who told me he truly believes we're going to end up with two Internets that their hours are internet and then basically the Chinese Internet? Okay with that just stay out of house. Well, that's his danger. Right. Right. I mean, the world could be dividing and a lot of people as we read the story. And I don't know how I know you hit your you hit your stride for you to o'clock show within the five so we know about the US navy said, one of its worship was forced to maneuver to avoid with the Russian ship. But the planes and this is all they believe Admiral Stavridis told me it has been a watched Admiral Kirby also say. Same thing, everything to do with the Russian Chinese day mini-summit talking about being best friends, while the same time being snubbed on d day. Right. So they're trying to send us a message, right? The thing is the Russians do this so much this, these close calls the one of those days, they're going to screw up. And then they'll blame holy hell will rain down. Now, it'll would we do? I'm fine with that would I would I think would a animal Chevy. This was just telling us as former supreme allied commander. He believes, Centcom, general Dunford's got to pick up the phone, and he's got a lay down the law. Now's the third incident if he hasn't done it already. And then if that happens then what if it happens again, at one point, we're not going to be the adults in the room. Don't you think? Well, that's an OR. At one point there. Close calls are going to actually end up being a call. Yeah. Yes. Admiral the admirals, absolutely. Correct. On the thing. Did you see this, this pictures of Putin and president Xi is a walk down? He says, but he was this is my best friend president. She said. Okay. Well, yeah, but don't you think he says they say that about everyone and I, I don't know what the real deal is in terms of Venezuela, the president saying that he heard from the Russians that they are withdrawing Wall Street Journal. Okay. And then the Russians are we'll know that's on actually true, but then. I heard about the Venezuelans can't pay the Russians. So that's why they're leaving. Yeah. And a couple of things for them to leave that will be great because he's the only really thinks to standing there, then you could force Cuba out, in Iran's presences already minimal, but Cuban, especially if you start to nine the little commerce, we had between them. They a feel it immediately if the Russians aren't writing Cuba checks anymore. So the belief is that that's going to be key. The Russians out of our hemisphere. They'll be used victory for the president. Yeah. Get out out the plan of your own problems. Right. I the interesting thing about about being snubbed on d day and not being there you you're a historian, I you can go back and look at those battles. And, and what the Russians were able to do to keep the, the Germans from from moving forward. It's it is admirable. And I, I don't know all of the decisions that went into not having them on d day, except for that they were not there. Right. Exactly. But the other thing is looking like Angela Merkel is there. They were there. So here's the here's the thing I mean, and I got I got cold on this yesterday. I said, on d day if there wasn't a Russian front, there was an eastern front, and the Germans kept forces all on one side, because the mutual regression pact was kept intact. What would have happened? And the answer was, we would have dropped the bomb on them. Yeah. But can you imagine Trump, the nuclear bomb in something as populated as Europe at the time to terrible decision to have to make in the Russians they, they they fought hard? They lost millions. Got it. But they won by they kept backing up scorched earth. So they basically burned every one of their cities and suck them in. Right. It's not like they stood toe to toe because toe to toe they got their member. They, they were very fortunate that the weather turned remember, they have the big the winter, the cold front comes the Germans aren't ready for it the snow falls, and helps them turn the tide. I, I know you have you always lived the big picture, I thought. Got to love the picks you do. I'm what we cover deejay live prime time over there. So we roll over it. And we saw the beautiful coverage. I thought it was like Broadway play. I loved it. Off was so great. And who do you think wrote that speech where they woven they tell the story, you think this person's integrative somewhere repes- away and stands behind him, right behind them? Mccrone speech. You felt he you felt like he felt it. So it wasn't a French refusing to show emotion. It's thank you. And I think we need to hear that once in a while there was amazing podcast. I listened to in Ben Shapiro has Sunday special that he does. And he interviewed four veterans thus about an hour. So I listened to it on a drive the other day. And so emotional one of the guys he was ninety two years old, before he ever got a counseling for his post traumatic stress from t- to. Yes. And after that he was able to work through it. He's written a book, and now he's dedicating the rest of his life to begging veterans to not closed down and to not hide their feelings and emotions to get counseling. Talk about it because they will have a brighter life. I was in tears because of all that he all of the greatest generation did for us that we can now have this peace and prosperity. So this. This is do you think I have to tell anybody we think that it's even worth a question of anyone on those ships, anyone who got dropped behind enemy lines? Anyone who fought the Japanese say, by the way, is a great country. Every one of them would go what he don't insult me that question, right? Why now with so many in our country hesitate in saying, yes or say, no? It's an interesting thing I think that one of the. When you look at d day, it's not that we just concord. An enemy you conquered an idea. Right. And we set a new moral standard for the world. And that's what my grandparents fought for mind grant, both grandfathers were in World War, Two, one in Europe and one in the Pacific. And that's how I, I was raised believing that America is a force for good in the world. So then you do something with ancestry dot com. It's coming up today today. It's today on the two o'clock show on the daily briefing ancestry dot com. Has gone and looked at public records and everything that they can find to bring to me and they're going to present to me what they found about my grandparents. I know that, of course, I know that my grandfather Perino is in the Pacific, my grandfather Brooks was in Europe. My grandmother Brooks was Rosie the Riveter. Wow. In denver. But I didn't know that my grandfather my father's side that had fought in the battle of Saipan. Then he was a navy corpsman medic. So he saw a lot and he didn't talk about the war. The only thing I know about him, is that his World War, Two uniform hung in the cellar. And he also said that we would never have a Japanese tractor. Yeah, they're not gonna shake right. Just alliances change things change. And what I told the Admiral to is that, you know, it's amazing. We let these two powers rise up. We didn't stop them. And are we doing it again? We let you pan and we let Germany and then we watched for the Russians, and we see the Chinese building alliance. Are we just going to watch? And also, what is the difference? It's freedom and democracy. Forty one's dad and Koizumi's dad. Bo fought against each other. In World War, Two in the Pacific right after nine eleven means the first person works out that calls President Bush to help out on nine eleven Dana Perino. Thanks so much watching show two and then again, five please show up, right? Reseda slapping next from the White House. And yeah I'm bragging. I got someone from the White House at Dana is so jealous back in a moment. This is news ninety six point five db.

But the Packers can just mope around John Dorsey and the Cleveland Browns headache great trap with greedy Williams falling into their laps in the second round. So we had a first round town. I'm sorry. Mike Dorsey, we've got Dorsey. I'm sorry. Why Hugh lies? We had a fantastic track. Be altered. The defense. Got a great safety. You're going to destroy the NFC north this shit. Bolster defense bolstered the d that's what I that's those are the big words we associate with critics of attorney general bar. I'll come back to that. In a second. I want to start with ambassador. John Bolton is my guest this morning. Followed by Admiral Stavridis, Bolton said that Madero was holed up at the Cuban military camp. What if anything have you picked up about the status of the uprising in Venezuela? Well, I was at a dinner last night where secretary pump peyot received in a ward. And he briefly their efforts to get Madore off the country, which the Russians intervened and told Madurai band is ground. And so my understanding based on what about bulletin? I said is there are three key members of the Madero regime has ministered defense his teeth supreme court judge and the play the guard commander who initially abandoned him and the leaders of the uprising and two of them seem to be on the fence going back and forth. So this is a very fluid situation and commence on pay. I commend bachelor bolted for standing strong. And I think the spite of the headlines we've seen in the mainstream media what in basketball pointed out is correct. That will receiving now to what we're seeing is the Venezuelan people rising up to take back their freedom from the corrupt ill. Illegitimate Madrid over gene. And what we're seeing Cuba and Russia propping up Madrid. We know secretary Taipei that he was actually getting ready to leave on a plane until the Russians talked him out of it. And then finally in contrast one way legitimate. Interim president of Walea has been risking his life out of the streets with the long imprisoned opposition leader. We put a Lopez demanding liberty for his country Guidote quickly hold elections wants Madrid steps down. And that doesn't look like a coup. Anyone wants to check the situation fairly now if they're hiding out the Cuban base, I asked Admiral Stavridis where people want to go and Senator Scott that they had to go to this base. That's where the marchers should go today. But that's very very risky. Mike gallagher. What do you? What do you think about approaching this Cuban base fort? It's called fort to A. Yeah. I would agree very risky because we've been Madero would not go light. Bachelor said that at least forty people have been killed in the current test. We've seen footage of pictures one eight armored vehicles clean gunfire. The Venezuelan people are risking everything right now for the freedom, and as Madero ratchets up pressure on people in the streets. We need to rant pressure Madurai in his foreign backers. I applaud President Trump for suggesting full incomplete imbera go with Cuba Cuban troops. Do not see their activities in support of Madero. And make that read us was quite clear. Twenty critical. Cuba is in this dilemma. So I believe we need to also increase pressure on the people around the during the leader semester. Bannon in for the sake of better future. Venezuela in veterans to simply called out those three key leaders minister defensive in court chats guard commander now at the time to make sure we every remaining thank Shen lever that we have to make them really feel the heat in the pressure. It seems to me Mike Gallagher, and I'm not a military guy. But if you've had three of your people call that by name, and you've lost the head of your secret police, you've got to be worried about picking a bullet in the back. Of the head. If you don't get out of town completely inside think where we can play a constructive role. In addition to the public diplomacy and forceful statements that we see coming out of the White House is to make sure that we can minimize foreign meddling in debt. We have southern command acted that in the area for tweet assets, including ships a little bit about public reporting all their operations recently. We have Admiral Fowler the commando of southern command. He's had some strong statements recently on Dennis Walea. I think we have cools in our kit to shape this. So that it doesn't get out of handed descend into all out civil war. And one thing they might want to consider here in congress, hue as we sort of. I think there's bipartisan opportunity there's a lot of people that think similarly across the island issue, although I have been struck by the fact that I don't think any major declared presidential candidate on the democratic tightness said anything about any way or anything. But in congress, we could consider something like a Helms Burton act for Venezuela that couldn't sent is the democratic transition. So you could structure that so that we'd automatically suspend sanctions enforcement wants the provisional government takes tower, and you chart a path towards the final destination of sanctions wants to macroscopic restored to the country in Hugh, we'd be creating a roadmap towards Nokia democratic reform. This could include a plan for US economic and humanitarian aid to help the transition and just spend the signal that the sooner Madero is gone. The sooner life will improve for the Venezuelan people, and we can set in congress, and I've got to assume that the lower ranks they then Israeli military are not getting their rations either. I just got to soon that that's why they're not rallying the Madero it only one civilian with murdered yesterday, which is a blessing seventy injured, but we saw the we saw the armored personnel. I don't know if that's national guard up those. The collective's that are the basically the of of South America. But he did not they did not use tenement square force yesterday. I would agree with you. I mean, I'm not writing based on what's publicly available right now. We're gonna have a series of meetings and securing today on the hill that hopefully will get a little bit more in making obviously awaiting update from the White House, but I would agree with your sentiment there too. And again the situations vary very fluid. I'm not suggesting that we can easily shape this one direction. But I do think we have an opportunity right now to stand with the Venezuelan people. And luckily, we have people like invest revolting Fowler secretary peyot that I had this situation correctly and had been preparing for it for a few months. Now, I've gotta say you're probably not even old enough to remember operation just cause or or to read about it. But that was the invasion of Panama. I went back and reviewed events prior to operation just cause they aren't extraordinary PayLess between then. And now, nor you. Agah ended up in US and other jails and ended up in a prison hospital twenty seven years after the United States invaded. He died in the prison hospital. You gotta think Maduro sees that. Just before the internet you because you don't know any about that before the internet like negative five years old. So. You don't you haven't done any reading on the Panama invasion, you're an Intel officer for the marines. I guess that's just what's in front of you, Hugh. I'm the marine. I do I only do like picture books. I don't read words. Let me read some words. Switch subjects quickly your colleague, Jerry Nadler is the chairman judiciary committee. I you can't say this because of the rules of the house. I can say he lied to the American people this weekend saying that attorney general bar doesn't get the dictate to the house how they conduct their preceding. That's true. But then he said we're gonna have democratic Council Question for half an hour. And that quote, that's a standard method of doing things. Close quote. No, it's not CNN. Fact, check them that actually hasn't happened ever judiciary staff question and attorney general in a public session. So what do you say chairman Nadler about misleading the American people about this? He was a Senate staffer for two years, I professional stack position to construct hearing set the met with members of the Obama administration would call you be our witnesses. I can't remember now granted relations committee. So maybe it's a little bit different. I can't remember single incident where we did something like that. I find that highly unusual and for chairman Adler that suggests that it's standard practice strikes me as completely completely misleading. Now, minor standing attorney general more than willing to come and testify before the committee before the elected representatives of the American people. But there is a problem there is a disease that in the institution of. And it's the fact that unelected staffers seem to think that they ran the government and the elective representatives actually seed their constitutional power, and it's already unelected stack or so down there simply wrong on this account. And I hope we'll continue to correct the public record. Now the distinction I draw and let's close here. If you're doing an investigation, and you've got witnesses such as any hill during Clarence Thomas or the doctor during Brad Kavanagh or witnesses during Benghazi where fact patterns have to be established, and you actually have to do it in diposal fashion. So you develop lines of questioning investigations Ron country used chief as well. So did Watergate that is appropriate for staff lawyers especial outside counsel to come in. But an oversight hearing of a cabinet member. It is not that distinction. I believe is in bedded oversight versus investigation in the history of the institution. And we ought not to allow anyone to disembark it or two attempt to pretend that it's not there. I would agree with you, Hugh. And again, I just to take us to a higher level or perhaps political. No, you've done a great job this morning, really focusing on the issue at hand, which is then way, and I fear for the next eighteen months, my democratic colleagues or issues like that. And just try and make a of what remains discredited collusion investigation and tit for tat with the Torney general bar. I just feel doesn't really serve the American people that will. And we have a serious issues that are going to be adjudicated in this campaign. We've a lot of people running for President Donald Trump. If we focus all of our time and attention, I would've manufactured crisis democratic leadership in the house want to create then serving the American people that will Mike Gallagher always good to talk to you. Despite your living in fantasy land on the Packers. It's good to have you grounded on what's going on in Venezuela. Hopefully this time next week. We'll be talking about president guide.

"Comes with the patriot mobile member of the week, congressman Mike Gallagher, Wisconsin where they're very disappointed in their draft. But the Packers can just mope around John Dorsey and the Cleveland Browns headache great trap with greedy Williams falling into their laps in the second round. So we had a first round town in. I'm sorry. Mike outdoorsy, we've got Dorsey. I'm sorry. Why Hugh lies? We had fantastic. We've bolstered the defense. We got a great safety. You're going to destroy the NASD north this year. Bolstered defense bolstered the that's what I that's those are the big words we associate with critics of attorney general bar. I'll come back to that. In a second. I want to start with ambassador. John Bolton is my guest this morning. Followed by Admiral Stavridis, Bolton said that was holed up at the Cuban military camp. What if anything have you picked up about the status of the uprising in Venezuela? I was at a dinner last night where secretary palm peyot received a ward, and he talked briefly their efforts to get out of the country, which the Russians intervened and told stand is ground. And so my understanding based on what we're building. I said is there are three key members of the Madero regime has ministered defense his chief supreme court judge and the play the guard commander who initially abandoned him and the leaders of the uprising and two of them seem to be on the fence going back and forth. So this is a very fluid situation. I commend secretary. I commend bachelor bolted for standing strong. And I think the spite some of the headlines we've seen in the mainstream media what bathroom Bogan pointed out is correct that what we're seeing is not a coup. What we're seeing is Venezuelan people rising up to take back their freedom from the corrupt. Illegitimate mature over, gene. And what we're seeing Cuba and Russia propping up major we know from secretary type peyot that he was actually getting ready to leave on a plane until the Russians talked him out of it finally in contrast one Guido legitimate. Interim president of his way has been risking his life out of streets with the long imprisoned opposition leader. The oppo Lopez demanding liberty for his country guidos promise to quickly hold elections wants Madrid steps down. And that doesn't look like COO anyone who wants to assess the situation fairly now if they're hiding out the Cuban base. I asked Admiral Stavridis where people ought to go and Senator Scott that they got to go to this base. That's where the marchers should go today. But that's very very risky. Mike gallagher. What do you? What do you think about approaching this Cuban base fort? It's called fourteen a yeah. I would agree. It's very risky because we've seen that Madero would not. Go lightly. That's our said that at least forty people have been killed in the current protests. We've seen footage of creditors. Run a armored vehicles between gunfire. The Venezuelan people are risking everything right now for the freedom, and as Madero ratchets up pressure on people in the streets. We need to ramp up pressure Madero and his foreign backers. I applaud President Trump for suggesting full and complete embargo Cuba. If Cuban troops do not see their activities and support Madero. Every this quite clear pointing out how critical Cuba is this dilemma. So I believe we need to also increase pressure on the people around the during the leader semester van and in for the sake of a better future for Waylon in about specifically called out. Those three key leaders minister defense chief supreme court judge and the guard commander now at the time to make sure we every remaining stank Shen lever that we have to make them really feel the heat and the pressure. I it seems to me Mike Gallagher, and I'm not a military guy. But if you've had three of your people call that by name, and you've lost the head of your secret police, you've got to be worried about taking a bullet in the back. Of the head.

I'm betting congress. We could consider something like a Helms Burton act for Walea that couldn't sensitive is the democratic transition. So you could structure that so that we'd automatically suspend sanctions enforcement once the provisional government takes power, and you chart a path towards the final. Termination of sanctions wants democracy is fully restored to the country. In essence, you we'd be creating a roadmap towards marketed democratic reform.

"You see that big patch on my face and fine. You should see the other guy. But I ask you who is the most moderate of all of the liberals running in the democratic presidential primary humour officially in. If you read this morning's Wall Street Journal on healthcare. It's John Delaney in Baidoa Rourke on higher education. It's John Delaney and Amy klobuchar on the environment. It's John delayed. So that would make John Delaney the most moderate liberal running the former congressman joins me now. Good morning congressman, how do you like that that Appalachian the most moderate liberal running? Well, I was smiling when you're saying because I've like he's just got has a way with words that you do it. Well, thank you for coming back. I think tell us where you are on the quest for sixty five thousand donors to get on the stage with my gang at NBC. Whoa. We're making. In progress. We're not there yet. We now we announced a programme last week called the delay debate challenge. And it says that if someone gives a dollar to my campaign one dollar. Then I will get two dollars to charity that they select from and we have eleven jarecki's choose from as an incentive to get this over with a soon as possible. How's that working? It's working. Well, actually, so where are you on the number or not actually I don't I've been on the road all week? And I'm at my home here this morning at seven AM yarn since I hang up with you on heading into the office. So I've got to get a download, but we're making good progress. All right now, John Delaney. I have had Tim right on a few times. Howard Schultz was on last week. Most of your democratic colleagues will not come on my show that is a huge mistake. You know, I'm a reasonable guy. Why won't they go and talk to people who wanna talk to them if I'm gonna talk to you about China's second. Why won't they do that? I don't know. It's the same reason why the DNC made in my judgment of bad decision. Not to allow FOX to do a debate. Well, well, put why was that a bad decision? Listen, I think we have to talk to everyone in many ways, we have a much bigger obligation to talk to those. Who we don't agree with? And we might end up agreeing on some stuff. I mean, that's the other part of it. All right. So let me turn to the big issue, which is China, and I've been talking yesterday with Admiral Stavridis and Mike Gallagher, your former colleague Mike Gallagher fan because he knows the answer to everything damn it's annoying in any event. But he and the Admiral we're both saying wake up America. The next two three decades are very dangerous because China is rising, and they are not afraid of confrontation. Do you agree with that, John Delaney? I do agree with that. So what do you want to do about it? Well, so I think we we, you know, we obviously need a plan. We gotta take them on. I mean, look at China's become a rival economically because they did three things they worked really hard good for them. They made smart investments in many ways smarter than we did. Good for them. But they didn't play by the rules. Right. We cannot let the next several decades unfold with China not playing by the rules. They act like pirates. They steal our property. They build illegal islands of the South China Sea engaging disinflation campaigns. Our own country. So, you know, my approach would be to get to create more alignment with our allies and US companies. How significant do you believe the espionage threat from the PR is in the United States? I mean, very significant. I think they have for middle cyber capabilities. You're in business before you went to congress. Did you have to worry about being hacked everyday? Well, we worried about it. I mean, I I I stepped down from running. I started to companies and certain public ice step down for my second one in two thousand eleven to run for office. So the cyber threat was not as significant as it is today, you know, even eight years ago, we always had a very robust IT platform that you'd is a is a big party for the company. He never had any technologies is accurate. And we had a pretty complex cyber technology puzzle. So this brings me to the the two issues Admiral Stavridis says a democrat, he was considered as secretary Clinton's running mates, you might have won. If he put him on. Although President Trump also considering him as. Secretary of state, and I also believe he's just about the smartest guy in the American military says there to threats from the Chinese one they're gonna have a four hundred fifty ship navy by twenty years from now, and they have an overwhelming cyber capability, so John Delaney. What would you do with the department of defense budget to meet this challenge? Well, I think the levels were spending at now are roughly appropriate. But so it's really a question are we spending in the right places? Right. Because it seems to me we are still two oriented towards the warfare of the past but not enough towards the warfare the future. So I would probably favor reallocate resources towards more cyber capabilities dance weapons capabilities really to ensure that we're fighting the battles of the next twenty years. I mean, I think question China watched us in the Middle East across the last decades and said, well, we're not gonna win that game. So let they started investing in the next game. The next game is also the navy and President Trump ran on having three hundred fifty five ships. There's no plan. I scored Russ vote and who is the acting on director for their budget, which is a good seven hundred fifty billion dollars. But it doesn't even get as close to what the president promised and repeated after he won which is three hundred fifty five ship navy, which is a minimum, John Delaney. Yeah. I mean, listen, you know, I've always voted to support our military when I was in the congress. I always voted for the department of defense appropriation does walls in the congress. I believe the American people understand that it's in our self interest. Is it nation to have the world's leading military now. So tell me how you're going to separate yourself. I'm assuming you're going to get the sixty five thousand contributions, what's the website, by the way, John Delaney dot com. A dollar. I give two dollars in in one of eleven charities and their name. It's go and get him on the stage because I let the smart guys on I want Delaney, and I want Tim Ryan if he gets into be the stage, and because the there the moderate democratic liberals, and that your party has gone over the edge. John, I I don't know if you're gonna agree with me on that. But talking about abolishing the electoral college every day that's such a waste of time. Also, wait outside the policy of the for second. We all know it is never going to happen. So why not spend time talking about what we do to lower drug prices. How we improve the healthcare system what we do to make sure we create jobs in parts of this country, the left behind with a huge concentration of investment in a relatively small number places. That is the right response. The right response is anyone who runs on any constitutional amendment is not serious. The second response is also direct democracy dangerous. We are framers have you seen Hamilton, John Delaney. You know, I have not seen it, man. You might be disqualified from being pregnant. Supposed to see it with my my wife and my two daughters up in New York and something happened. I could make it they all want to see it. My wife Senate like free time. No seriously. I I don't think you can be president. If haven't seen Hamilton brilliant. They're talking about the federalist papers at length in how he worked and worked and worked on it. And they made this argument Madison Hamilton that little bit about how you can't have direct democracy. You have to have mediated represented. You're Representative yourself. We can't have. Initiatives on all these issues, we need smart people about this issue. You know, people can disagree on what you just said. I'm not saying I do. But, but what you said earlier, it's a waste of time to talk about this right because it's very very hard to amend the constitution, and a small state would never agree to amend the constitution to get rid of your actual college. At absolutely not. No way. I tell people is. I'm like, listen. I wanna talk to you about issues that matter to your lives where I can make a difference kind of things, you know, like, I, for example, I talk a lot about climate change. But what I talk about is how we should be investing in negative emissions technologies, which are machines that exist that actually take carbon out of the atmosphere. Are you serious about nuclear power, John Delaney, because my friend, Dan Pondimin, my college roommate he was President Obama's deputy secretary of the energy now runs. Our only reimbursement program in the United States. If you're not for nuclear power safe reliable nuclear power. You're not serious about climate change. Are you are you serious about safe reliable nuclear power, and I want to be addressed to dance nuclear. That's different from Democrats. How's that go over? I think it goes over. Well, because what I tell them is. I'm like, listen, either climate change is a problem or it's not right? If it's a problem, you have a singular focus on six when John F Kennedy said we should send someone to the moon. He didn't tie that other issues of injustice that were going on at the time. He marshalled our intellectual capital in our resources and innovated our our country to the solution. That's how we have to approach climate change near John Glenn. If you say that on the debate stage, you might get some booze. But people in the television audience will say, hey, there's a there's a liberal. There's there's the most moderate liberal on the stage. You know, there's a facility that open Houston in the last several months called an alum cycle facility. It's brand new technology. It's a natural gas electric power plant. It is net zero brand new technology is better by scientists in the UK it is net zero. I hate it. When candidates know things, I don't know what you should look at this. Because the point is we will not get off fossil fuels fast enough. So what we have to do is get the carbon out of fossil fuels outta faster rate. That's how you of climate change guys. We gotta get you to sixty five thousand everyone listening to this radio show. Got John Delaney dot com right now. Gimme back. And get I'll give to in their name to one of eleven chair. And I love that approach. I think that is athletes if they're going to set a rule set, and they don't say you can't do that. Then you can do that. So John Delaney comeback early and often, my friend. Thank you for joining me. I just hated though and candidates. No, thanks. I don't know. That makes me really. Yeah. I forgot to ask him if he had.

"We stayed with the Venezuelan people. Their noble quest for freedom, and we condemn the brutality of the Madero regime, whose socialist policies have turned that nation. From being the wealthiest in South America into a state of abject, poverty, and despair. Welcome back, America. It's Hugh Hewitt. That was President Trump last night talking about Venezuela, incredibly speaker Pelosi did not rise to her feet. I am quite certain that my next guest congressman, Mike Gallagher dead. Congressman welcome good morning to you. And I right. Did you rice your feet when the president called on for freedom in Venezuela? Well, of course, I was hidden in a bunker deep under lambofield survivor standing. I found that both inexplicable and unconscionable. I mean by sitting on her hand is implicitly standing with the Madero regimes ending with the brutal regime failed socialist regime, and I have to give the White House enormous credit for their approach to Venezuela. So far, I think president pants with his op-ed that we talked about last week is speech. The president last night the appointment of Elliot Abrams honcho the effort from the State Department. It's all been quite good. It seems our allies are rolling their ores mistaken direction that we are this'll be a complicated thing. But if we can get this, right? It will send a signal of strength around the world and will will allow us to sort of thread the needle between this false choice. We continually get between doing nothing and then all out high end military, invasion on the other hand. I think they're on the right track. And that was a great moment. Among many great moments in a great speech. It was it was and I do believe we're on the right? Track. And I'm hopeful that that military intervention won't be necessary. But I remain concerned that Madero is a thug who may open fire at any time at which point. I hope we're ready. I hope that armory combat brigade is in Columbia that was on John Bolton yellow pad and that if they begin to get violent we get we get to their rescue. Let me talk to you about some of the ad. I went over these excerpts with Admiral Stavridis in the first hour, I wanna play them for you and get your response again as member the Armed Services Committee. This is the president talking about pulling out of the I n f cut number fourteen military buildup, the United States is developing a state of the art missile defense system. And my administration. We will never apologize for advancing America's interests, for example. Decades ago, the United States entered into a treaty with Russia in which we agreed to limit and reduce our missile capability. Well, we follow the agreement and the rules to the letter Russia repeatedly violated its terms. It's been going on for many years. That is why I announced that the United States is officially withdrawing from the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty, or I n f trading perhaps..

"We really have no choice. Perhaps we can negotiate a different agreement, adding China and others. Or perhaps we can't in which case we will outspend and out innovate all others by far so Mike Gallagher. Your response to that congressman. I think withdrawing from the now besides the military buildup itself is perhaps the single biggest foreign policy and defence development over the last two years in a positive development to which I give the administration enormous credit. I had an amendment inserted into last year's national defense. Authorization act that forced the administration to make a determination that made a determination that made the right determination. And this opens up a whole host of opportunities for us in the Indo Pacific. This is what people always forget, it's not just about Russian violation of the INS. The fact that since two thousand fourteen they've been in violation. It's about the fact that China is not a signatory to the INS in China is stealing the world's largest arsenal of INS noncompliant missiles ground-launched missiles with ranges between five hundred and fifty five hundred kilometers that are targeting our shifts and are four days in the Pacific, and we can't do. Anything about it hamstrung by the INS. I would commend to you an article written by a marine Colonel named Scott Cuomo currently getting his PHD at Georgetown, Texas, national security review, where he lays out in and really teases out. How getting out of the INS opens up our possibilities to deter China in the Indo Pacific. So this is a huge accomplishment that will reverberate for years to come and the administration deserves enormous credit for pursuing this path. Can you ask one of your minions to tweet out because I know you don't tweet you're on tweets tweet out the link to that and see siemian the and my handle so that I can find that congressman Gallagher. I know that you've got like thirty handlers. And so if you would have one of them I wanna play for the next by the way, Admiral Stavridis said exactly what you said he also suggested that secretary of state pump peyot who is fond of special on voice who have a focus like Brian hook on on Iran who have a focus on a particular region might want to appoint a special envoy on. I n f negotiations involving both Russia and China and everyone else to see if there isn't something to be resurrected what do you make of that idea? That's interesting. I hadn't considered it. I will confess. I am a bit more skeptical of the special on volume approach special envoys sort of grow like weeds in the State Department, and all they do is create overlapping bureaucracies and duplicate lines of effort that should be falling. Under rightly empowered assistant secretaries and deputy assistant secretaries, but there may be something to that idea of trying to resurrect it. I wouldn't go the route of the pointing a whole separate special envoy. And why we disagree about that? Because the State Department isn't for moving it trying to move the State Department rapidly anywhere is like trying to move glue. That's been hardened overnight. Well, which is why I think you need to fix the Senate process that will allow for quick confirmation of political appointees in the State Department because the president deserves and the secretary of state deserves to have his people directing the broad direction of Hartman. And whether it's state for DOD, you are inevitably going to face significant bureaucratic intransigent Greenwich fee in the Pentagon. When the latest budgets emission comes out. The question we need to ask you whether we're actually implementing Trump's national security strategy or national defense strategy. The INS is a key part of that though, I'm going to remind you of that when Ron Johnson retires. And we're looking for a candidate in Wisconsin, congressman. I I will probably be indoor county fishing at that point. I'll find you. I'm just going to play that tape about fixing the Senate. I'm just gonna keep that on on speed dial here now, I gotta play for you. The most astonishing moment of non standing and applauding cut number sixteen. The democrat sat on their hands through cut number sixteen here, the United States. We are alarmed by the new calls to adopt socialism in our country..

"Here's the key moment if Turkey unintentionally or intentionally fired on and wounded or killed American troops. Well, either consequences ambassador Bolton. Well, you know, it's it's exactly this concern that American servicemembers not be put in jeopardy, especially by NATO ally. That was principally on President Trump's mind. The first duty the president is to protect Americans and and an implementing his decision to withdraw from northern Syria, northeastern, Syria, he didn't want the Turks or anybody else to take any action that would put them in jeopardy. So I think that's why we've all been saying publicly that and it was part of the presentation we made in Turkey that the Turks should not take any military action. That's not fully coordinated through military to military channels with us in the last hour, Admiral Stavridis, former NATO allied supreme commander told me that if the Turks fired on and hit any Americans that would trigger article five for other NATO members, and they'd have to act you agree with that assessment. Well, I think it depends on the circumstances. I don't want to speculate. I assume that the Turk. Military will try and comply with what's the president air wine committed to President Trump as I say these discussions are are continuing right there. Do you notice? Matt Spalding about statecraft, Admiral Stavridis, who's not in the government said, oh, that's an article five violation. Every member of NATO would come in. And the national security adviser says I don't want to speculate. I don't think president air to one's gonna wanna do that. Well, it it it. But also made the classic response with it depends on the circumstance why we speak the virtue of prudence, right? There's a principle at play here. But it always depends on the circumstances that tell it becomes a virtue to be prudent. Right. So so absolutely. I thought that was a a wonderful exchange, and you can see how they're thinking through their minds. One. You see the the the complications of the Middle East, of course. But it just in general all the the moving parts that were generally not aware of the the press is concerned there. It's just like this is blunt force by an autocrat. We meaning President Trump. There's actually a lot more going on here. I think bulletins got this wonderful grasp all the moving parts, and he's seeking through all these things. Nothing you brought up in any of this interview is not something. He's thought about at some length and also had a pretty thought-through if incomplete or. Unstated answer. I thought it was extremely impressive. What one last delicate bet here we go is there daylight between the president and secretary of state pomp HALE. And or you Mr. bachelor. No, there's not you know, when when I was out in Israel and Turkey. I think I spoke to the president four or five times by phone. I spoke to secretary palm peyot about the same number of times. General Dunford was was was with us and in Turkey, and as I mentioned a moment ago. The position we presented to the government of Turkey was one that we had cleared through all the normal diplomatic and bureaucratic processes precisely. So that the US spoke with one voice, you know, the media loves to find splits in the administration that sort of a hobby of theirs. And I think the media also have a problem, you know, when they don't know the full story because they don't get to sit behind me at my desk or behind Mike Pompeo. They learn if something and they think well my goodness. We've just learned about this. This must be new or different or conflicting. When in fact, it's just part of an unfolding plan. The Matt Spalding that was just a beautiful put down of hot takes from everybody, including it. You know, when I do a hot tech. We have no idea. No. That's that's that's right. But, but it's also the general put down or at least a correction to our politics. Everything happens today so quickly and in such a short amounts of of timing information and quick reaction. Whereas in in the world, what we need in politics. Generally, what we need are people who have have studied the big questions understand the principles. But but then are are aware of in a really thinking through the circumstances in particulars to create something, which we call statecraft, all our our states. Whether we're talking about this example before us in the in the Middle East, and in your interview was was with Bolton or talking about Henry clay trying to prevent the civil war. Right. That's just this larger phenomenon we're trying. To cultivate here. It's not really for the sake of history that we talk about these things. This is the way of thinking that we need desperately today to to solve our problems. But also make sure this country is secure and safe in the world. And that type of thing that way of thinking is is what is so so crucially important both domestic and foreign policy. And I think this is a great example of that all throughout that interview. And I think that oddly enough, even though President Trump we can say is disruptive president he's breaking things up. He's he's shifting things around. And there's a kind of the tectonic plates of our politics are moving simultaneously. I think we're also seeing in various places a revival of this older way of thinking.

War on the Korean peninsula, would look like hundreds of thousands if not millions dead that was before there were nuclear weapons involved. So a we ought to take the cautionary message and be we ought to. Remember when China's back was pushed to the wall by MacArthur with US troops surging north. They responded they responded hard. They pushed us all the way back down that peninsula. We should not underestimate China's will in a military conflict. So I wouldn't say we're quite on desperate ground yet between the US and China, but skirmishes lead to wars we need to be very cautious and careful in how we deal with China. So what is the scuttle butt among your colleagues and other officials in an outside of the military about the future of the United States role in the Pacific.
