Benjamin Netanyahu Calls Latest Iran Deal 'Absurd' & 'Dangerous'

"Benjamin Netanyahu on Biden's Iran deal Boy they could sure use him as the prime minister again They have this loser Bennett With his support from I think it was 5 members of the Knesset out of a 120 And you talk about a coup That was a coup But take a listen to this hat tip right scoop cut one go The desperate rush to sign this flawed nuclear agreement with Iran is not only absurd It's downright dangerous Yesterday Iran fired missiles in the vicinity of the American consulate in Iraq And the U.S. continues to charge ahead along with the other powers to sign a nuclear agreement that will give the ayatollahs a nuclear arsenal It would also relieve sanctions and give them hundreds of billions of dollars In order to continue the terror that they weighed yesterday and wage every day throughout the Middle East and the world This agreement is even worse than its predecessor Because in three years time under this agreement Iran will be a threshold nuclear state that will have enough in which uranium to create dozens and dozens of nuclear bombs and it will have the ICBMs to deliver them to any place in the United States That is unbelievable It's not merely unacceptable It endangers not only my country as old but your country the United States and the entire

Naftali Bennett Only Came to Power Through a Coup

"The prime minister of Israel is a pew salamis weakling Who came to power through a coup There are a 120 seats in the Israeli Knesset whoever gets 61 by hooker by crook Gets to a point the prime minister And so Bennett ran to the right of Netanyahu claimed to anyway And then he cut a deal with the liberal to left wing and even the Arab parties To have a temporary position as prime minister of Israel Which will eventually have to give up and give to a leftist And just like the United States Israel has exactly the wrong people in charge at this time in history They replace Netanyahu who got far more as party votes than Bennett In fact if the election were held today Netanyahu and his party would win in a relative landslide and Bennett he came to power with 5 seats out of the 120 5 seats As illegitimate of a prime minister as Israel's ever had

Frank Gaffney: 'Clinton Coup' Prevented People From a Fair Election

"That Hillary Clinton and her campaign are guilty of a third of the things that we're hearing, this is way bigger than Watergate. I mean, even comparing it to Watergate is laughable. If you know the story, if you know what wargame was and how much, you know, hay was made over not much. But there was a principle involved. Today, we're dealing with something that goes so far past that that it's scary. It reveals a level to me at least of cynicism on the part of Hillary Clinton and the people in what we now know to be the deep state that it's chilling. It's deeply un American. It's at least deeply un American. Well, I think the best way to describe it is the Clinton coup. It was designed to prevent the American people from being able to elect the individual that they wanted as president of the United States. And having failed to do that, thank God to destroy that presidency. In a way that is very cool like, you know, trying, among other things, to take out the man who was in the presidency. And otherwise, at every turn, for his initiatives or sabotage the personnel trying to implement them for him. And on and on. And let's be clear. It's not about Trump. In other words, it was the will of the American people that was being thwarted that was being sneered at and spat upon. That's what we have to be really clear about.

The Paradox of Dictatorship

The Paradox of Dictatorship

"Why was Stalin so brutal? Why was Mao so brutal? So an easy explanation is that while they were evil, yeah, of course they were obviously they were godless and soulless. But it takes someone willing to do evil to hold onto power. So this is the paradox of dictatorship. The paradox of dictatorship, which Julius Caesar experienced the hard way to Napoleon to Alexander the Great is that it's easy to assume power. It's really hard to hold on to it. Because if you have absolute power, you'd be fooling yourself if other people around you wouldn't want that power for themselves as well. And so this is the machiavellian dilemma, you're not exactly able to win over support by just paying people off always. Were to just give them goodies. Eventually, there will be pushback. Eventually people will start conspiracies. They will start coups. They will start efforts to destabilize you. Again, Julius Caesar, a great example of this, but also, many people don't know that Hitler had many attempts against his life. Several failed assassination attempts. In fact, if my memory serves me correctly, the movie Valkyrie went through this in quite great detail, great detail. Hitler would have just sat in a different chair at different time. He would have been killed by an explosive suitcase. And if I remember correctly, there was another assassination plot might have been that one that was actually designed by Dietrich bahnhof for himself. The people around Hitler did not always support what he did, Stalin as well.

John Zmirak Has Some Thoughts on Ukraine and Vladimir Putin

"In ladies and gentlemen. I have good news and bad news. The good news. I'm talking to John's mirac. The bad news, everything he says. Okay, John. Let's talk about the Ukraine. The other day I had the privilege of sitting with Sebastian gorka. I want to get him on this program because he was making the case of why we would why we should defend Ukraine. And others, I was trying to understand in my mind once the Soviet Union fell NATO is over. You don't need NATO. I never really understood why we preserve this fiction of we still have the Cold War going even though it's over. The same reason for the same reason we still have Amtrak. And that's it. It's institutional bureaucracy and admission bloat, I'll say this. Vladimir Putin is right. Everything Vladimir Putin has asked for from the United States is legitimate. Like if we go to wait, I want to just maybe if we go to war with Russia over this. We will be wrong and we will deserve to lose. This is worse than the Iraq War because there was a legitimate pretext for the Iraq War, even though it was stupid. This is worse than the war in Afghanistan. This will be more like the Spanish-American War or the Mexican-American War when where we were basically in the wrong. We, the U.S. are CIA overthrew the legitimate popularly elected government of Ukraine in a coup d'etat that was eerily similar to what happened to our election in 2020. The same CIA deep state types who overthrew the government in Ukraine because it was too pro Russian. We have audiotape of the U.S. ambassador talking to one of her aides. This is about ten years ago. This is when Yanukovych was overthrown. Right. We have audio of the U.S. ambassador chatting with her staff about who should be the next president. Because she was the one picking him. Imagine if the Russia overthrew the government in Mexico because it was too pro American, put in a pro Russian government, created a military alliance with Russia, like NATO is with the U.S. and then tried to take pieces of Texas.

America's Deeply-Rooted Double Standard of Justice

America's Deeply-Rooted Double Standard of Justice

"If you don't really believe that there is a now deeply rooted double standard of justice in this country. Let me give you a couple of cases to compare one against the other. You remember Jacob chansley, the guy with the big feathers and the guy with the ridiculous outfit on January 6th. Now this is a guy who went into the capitol and basically paraded around. No weapons, no assault, no, even implication of violence. He spent 317 days in solitary confinement. And he got 41 months in prison. The DoJ actually wanted more, but that's what the judge gave him. Now, let's compare his case. With the case of another guy, this guy's name is montez teriya Lee. And this is a guy during a George Floyd riot and antifa BLM riot. What did he do? He set fire to a pawn shop. Deliberately. He was an arsonist. And there was a man inside the pawn shop. Named Oscar Lee Stewart, 30 years old, who was torched to death. This guy was burned. And his body was found afterward he obviously inhaled fumes and he suffocated to death. As a result of the actions of this guy montez, teriya Lee. This is the black guy, I'm looking at a picture of him he's kind of holding his hand up in a kind of black power salute outside the pawn shop. He was obviously very proud of himself and what he did, and he was making a defiant gesture outside the pawn shop. Look, I'm the guy who did this. And now I want to read from the Biden DoJ's statement of the judge asking for this guy not to get a typical murder sentence. Not to get a life sentence, not to get a capital murder sentence because the truth of it is if you commit an intentional felony, and in the course of that felony, even though you didn't intend to kill that guy in the commission of the intentional felony you did kill that guy, it becomes a capital offense normally, normally. But for the Biden DoJ, these are let's just say understandable circumstances. And so the Biden DoJ wants 12 years for this guy for this crime, a crime that normally carries life. I want to read from the Biden DoJ's document. They say, mister Lee's a motive for setting the fires of foremost issue. Mister Lee credibly states that he was in the streets to protest unlawful police violence and was, quote, caught up in the fury. Now they say the DoJ as anyone watching the news worldwide knows many other people in Minnesota with similarly caught up, quote there appear also to have been many people who felt angry frustrated and disenfranchised and who were attempting in many cases in an unacceptably reckless and dangerous manner to give voice to those feelings, mister Lee appears to be in that category. And then they go on to say, he appears to have believed that he was, quote, in doctor king's eloquent words. Engaging in, quote, the language of the unheard. Now, Martin Luther King of one point said a riot is the language of the unheard and here you have the Biden DoJ invoking Martin Luther King to make this guy seem like not a nice guy, but someone who sort of got whipped up into a frenzy and we can kind of understand the cause because after all, he was fighting for social justice. And then the judge goes along with this. The guy gets ten years, which when you consider what he did is an absurdly light sentence. Here is the judge. The judge says two mister Lee. And contrast this again with the judges who have been excoriating the January 6th protesters, nonviolent protesters. Oh, you overturning you're trying to overturn election. You're trying to mount a coup. You're endangering our system of government. Here's the judge. Her name is wilhelmina Wright. She says to Li that you are, quote, more than the person who celebrated your actions on social media. You are more than the person who destroyed that business by fire. You are more than the person who set that fire that killed a man. In other words, the real mister Lee is not the guy who did those things. And then the basic idea is this is how she concludes so while there are no excuses for your actions on May 28, 2020, you have a chance to move forward and live a productive life. The judge is actually even though the victim is dead, saying to the perpetrator, you know, I'd like to see you go on. I'd like to see you become a better person. We don't have to judge you entirely about what you did on that day. You were sort of carried away. You were articulating, quote, the language of the unheard. So look at the kind of gentle understanding empathetic way in which the DoJ treats this particular case and then contrast it with the tight lipped glint in your eye anger that judges, including in one or two cases Trump judges have unleashed on protesters who showed up in Washington D.C. on January 6th to simply express their frustration

Professor Victor Davis Hanson Breaks Down the 'Buffoonish Riot' of January 6

"Professor Hansen, welcome to America first. Thank you for having me. So let me just, I noted some of the words from that brand new video that has been posted on the Internet president Trump affected a coup an insurrection his supporters are traitors and brandishing AR-15s who are afraid of democracy, president Trump is demented. Just your reactions to those adjectives alone. Well, I criticize it as sort of a buffoonish riot, but insurrection and conspiracy are precise words. So let's just break them down. The FBI ran an investigation. They found no conspiracy. You can't have an insurrection unless people are armed. There were nobody that entered the capitol that it possessed or used a firearm. And we had headlines at 5 people died in an officer had been murdered. The officer Brian sicknick died of natural cause. We didn't find out for days. Because the media alleged that he had been bashed in the head by a Trump supporter or had suffered an allergic reaction due to bear spray by a Trump supporter. So what we were left with of that commercial was a 105 pound 14 year old 14 year military veteran ashleigh babbitt who was lethally shot for the crime of entering a window in the capitol breaking and entering either a low level felony or a misdemeanor. And we didn't get any information about the officer who shot her. So the whole narrative is broken down, but I like clarity. I like transparency. So I think the best thing that should do is have an independent commission. And let's get everything out. Let's get all of the videos. Let's get all of the communications about law enforcement between Democrats, Republicans, capitol police, administrators, everything. Get it out in a nonpartisan, not a congressional asymmetrical investigation, but an independent sort of Warren commission. Let's find out. And let's see if anybody was FBI informant. Maybe there were wearing. They were not. I don't

How Cori Bush Is Trying to Disqualify Congressional Conservatives

"A new article for the communist rag otherwise known as the nation, the nation dot com, says representative Cori Bush is right in her read of the constitution. Officials who give aid and comfort insurrectionists must be removed from their positions. And the title of the article is to avert another January 6th, expel coup plotters from Congress. So you read this article basically, Cori Bush back in January of last year, introduced a resolution in Congress saying that any member of Congress it's called HR resolution 25, quote, we should commemorate the one year anniversary of January 6th by passing HR 25 to investigate and expel the members of Congress who helped incite the violent insurrection at our capital. You might think, okay, this is just kind of normal chatter. But then you actually go into the U.S. Constitution itself, which we're big fans of. We have our constitution always handy right here, brought to you by turning point USA, you guys can get your constitution. I think it is the best constitution, by the way. It's informative. It's colorful. Isn't it great Connor? It's a beautiful constitution. And you actually go straight into the constitution. It says that no person shall be a senator or representative in Congress or elector of president and vice president or any officeholder, civil or military under the United States or any state, who have previously taken an oath as a member of Congress or engage in the United States to shall 11 gauged in an insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.

And that this had come from China, one of the things that I really thought I would see is that Americans would unite. Yes. And recognize that we have a common enemy in China. And if they were deceptive and live and they unleashed this on the world. Instead, you had the media and a political party that had for the previous four years done everything imaginable to have a silent coup d'etat to take out Donald Trump. Rather than support Donald Trump, they took the side of the Chinese. And I looked at that kind of like, let's go back to World War II after when Pearl Harbor was attacked by the Japanese.

"Of this is in response to appeal amazon organization at the success of our organizing And you know just like historically a response to fucking obama being elected. It's all all of these things related and the hatred of black people is just so so strong To encourage all of this and it just makes me real fucking sad. Yeah i would really encourage everybody that listens to santa clara to look at your own life Especially if you're white and look at how anti black racism is present Is present at your work. Site is present In your socializing is present in your family and and actually confronted lake. Start to name it. Start to understand what purpose it plays. And who benefits from anti-black racism. You know a lot of times. I think that we've really in a lot of people say this to. We've really kind of not made a mistake. But i think we've confused ourselves with the language of like white privilege right like i have the privilege of getting a band aid and the color of my skin. I have the privilege of getting a job. Because i'm white That kind of thing. And i think that you know one of the things. I really hope that people can do. We can start challenging ourselves to stop saying white privilege when what we really mean is White supremacy when we really mean is anti black racism right. So is it really white privilege that you get better health Attention when you go to the hospital. Let's say if your weight is that white privilege Or is what you're actually saying. Is that someone who is not wait. Actually <hes> we'll have a pulse. Oximeter not read their oxygen levels correctly or a person votes give birth. We'll have a a a hemorrhage we'll hemorrhage while while giving birth at a rate much higher than had they not been racialized so they're not gonna black or indigenous especially and that's really important because because it isn't about like the privilege narrative is so fucking liberal again that it isn't actually about my personal privilege nor loretto like it's actually about how me nor loretto. I fit into this other world in the work that they do and the things that i say in the culture i consume in the people. That i- ve lift and i work with and you know we all can can always like do better right. Of course we have to do better and not. Just do better. We have to explain this to people for whom A lot of it is invisible because it's the other feature of white supremacy which is that. It renders that that thing that creates white privilege invisible rights. We have to make it visible for people so that we can actually combat this stuff. And i think that that's really helpful too because there's been a lot of the narrative the united states like well. These are just down and out white people. It's economic anxiety. It's all this kind of thing right and it's like No Like a lot of the refunding people taking like private jets right. This isn't about the yeah okay. Rich people have economic anxiety. Probably more than a lot of other people but not for like good reasons And and so like reformulating. This i think is just so so important. And if you're not really sure how to do it or if you want to ask a white person like really white people questions. I mean you can always message me and i will do my best to help you <music> m-.

"These <hes> <hes> <hes> corporations are not public because we've never made public. We're fucking outsourcing internet. Now to fucking along. Musk so that people in remote or not even remote sometimes just not reached by by high speed. Internet can't get fucking internet and so you know don't forget these things don't confuse twitter with being the public airways that we actually should do have access to and so what are the levers we can pull to actually get ourselves back into some of those spaces were as a completely fucked is is our future actually one hundred percent private for profit communications. That's such a big question. I mean sarah. I'm well. I feel like we have a little bit of a of an episode on this From before it slightly from a different angle on how important it is actually to have access to the internet as a form of communication that there should be some sort of a public provision of it like it doesn't make sense. I mean if if this was forty years ago or maybe even more than that. Maybe if this was like six years ago. I feel like that would have been a no brainer. But we're living in Late stage Ridiculous capitalism now so nobody cares and or even thinks about it as a as a as an issue You know you're right. All of the discussions that were having are being mitigated by private interests. And so what does that mean The the internet is not just. You know it's it's it's not the case that trump was successful because On twitter as like this really popular figure on twitter to these the white supremacist groups. Simply because he is he has like the mind of like the cleverest pithy statement maker. That's not what it is. I mean the algorithm is set up so that controversy <hes> becomes popular Because controversy is profitable people. Click on controversy and you can surround controversy with with with really really great ads. And i mean that's more facebook than twitter obviously And more youtube than twitter. Obviously but these these systems are set up so that you spend as much high doom scrolling as possible. And so you know when you should be getting some sort of analysis or news or discussion about You know the types of white supremacist accident been happening locally in your area That you might want to be concerned about and what the government has done about it. That's not what These non-public airwaves or internet pipes are going to send to you. They're going to send to you the most controversial stuff ever which is trump. And i mean that sort of logic has bled into the way our media works altogether and so we get our media paying attention to an idiot like maxime bernier <hes> for <hes> during an election period even though it makes no sense to do that because he's controversy and he's clicks and it'll get you to redeem scroll even though it doesn't make any sense and so i mean we have to have that as part of our analysis of what's going on when we're on we're using these social media platforms. They are dictating What's important and creating new news as much as the actors are doing that. The other thing to say on all of this is just how sad. I've been feeling just like guide. People hate black people so much and it fucking sucks like i just you know you got to remember how everyone was like concerned about georgia. A few fucking days ago like that feels like a year ago away. But i mean part of what's happened here is a is a response to black people organizing themselves and impacting the direction of of of Politics at directly. And you know these people who are these obvious raging white supremacists. Are you know coming together and saying that they they want to stop election fraud or whatever but what they're chanting at these rallies is fuck beal And what they're doing is attacking needs black people on the street and so much

"It's really important to keep that in mind. Because i saw i. There's some people that are like well. It should be nationalized. We should nationalize twitter. And it's like who should nationalize it. The fucking american government like really okay like or or made a joke but it's like like the united nations like do sort of international treaty that would like manage a multi-nation platform like like facebook or twitter like it. You know this is where it's the knee jerk reactions because the the then the questions become really really thorny and really complicated very quickly and so i think that if people are like trying to sort through this freedom of speech issue or not it's like it can be not freedom of speech issue and also something that concerns you because of course people have been Removed from twitter all the time right. I mean there's tons of folks. Who've i fucking been suspended like five times. Every single time has been through people harassing me off of the off of the platform. So it's just like you know we have to keep our head on straight and most importantly like we have to be reminded. That are organizing. Can't just happen. They're just as the organizing of the far right is not just happening online. The online world is bringing people together in ways. That has never happened before giving people a platform in ways. That has never happened before because we're able to circumvent mass media but it isn't as if there's not all these other locations for people to do this organizing and it isn't as if that organizing isn't happening in real life. I mean fuck. There was a suicide bombing on christmas day. In the united states and egg got nothing no coverage almost from the mainstream media right. There wasn't like days and days and days of the pictures of the of downtown nashville being completely blown to bits in for some ice otherwise like oh my god like how has this not been on the news anywhere and so then the question becomes well. What is the role of of twitter and facebook in the in a world where we also have mass communications through mainstream for profit and public broadcasting. And i think that that might be where we can kind of pivot because we do have to talk about canada Of course but people flocked to social media because it's a place where they can amplify their voice and they can amplify the voice whether it's to share pictures of their kids or to put their opinion down or to work through a question or to just say how they're feeling and the more that that has taken a place in our life it. The the more that are mainstream media has become fucking decimated and there's direct connections between facebook and twitter and instagram likes basically stealing local news and then providing it for free and then the local stations are fucked but there's also kind of more of a theoretical kind of approach to be looking at this and as as we're not seeing ourselves in in media but we're able to express ourselves more on social media of course we're to flock further to these four profit private corporations under the guise that it's giving us a public platform and it's really important remember like in canada. We consider and i think that's probably the case across the world. We consider our airwaves public. We consider like if you've ever listen to the radio at five in the morning when they do their station identification which they have to do as per the cnbc that you have to say that these are public airways and there's a public regulator that manages. How the the the the public space operates the fucking internet is not public because we've never made public..

"They've given him banking it's over. Yeah well. I mean they're right like this whole thing happened because of twitter like all of this organizing was all because donald trump kept on tweeting about this. Well i don't wanna just. I don't want to give zero credence to that. 'cause there is there is something there that yes yes twitter His access to twitter his access to being the the The the most giant troll to the quote unquote establishment is is something that helped his organizing absolutely but he all like. Don't become confused like this type of organizing started way back with the tea party and has been growing ever since and so twitter was a tool but is not the tool and if twitter wanted to.

"And i'm like y'all are not paying attention. You're not paying attention. Yeah yeah. I think This is where as you say. What we don't see is really really important for for us to take to to keep in mind right. It's like the trump's are richer than anyone listening to this podcast this and enrich beyond probably what you could even imagine. And they live in a world that is disgusting fucked up and full of like things that you would probably be shocked to see and you know there's anything from like the epstein stuff to lake. Just probably the amount of waste that they exist in their life and you'd be like that is really wild. They're not normal people and and you know it's about trump in a way but it's also not exactly about trump either because you know the group of people who are die hard for trump They're gonna stick around in some capacity around the far-right key republican movement. Or they'll just become random like guys committing terrorist acts in different ways like they're going to morph into something and that's not an insignificant group of people. I mean i was when this was all happening or just before. This was happening. I to a park to meet a friend of mine while our kids played and then she was telling me about like what she was expecting because she alabama and she said that that she knew of like two busloads of men of totally fully armed in a school bus for sixteen hours to drive or something like that to drive from alabama to to dc for this. So there's a level of commitment that is not just going to disappear when trump stop tweeting or is once you can't pay for trump fucking paraphernalia through shop. Which fuck you shop by canadian company. That's been supporting the shit until two days ago..

"That understands that the far right is like the frontline of just like the regular right right like the republicans obviously the republicans who like expressly supported. What happened and were present. And then there's republicans who would say that they did not then. There's republicans who are you know have been proposed to trump for a while now but they all benefit from the the front lines. Being these fucking the the this beard. Oh putsch right like this. This what looked like completely chaotic completely. I managed completely ridiculous situation so funny. Because i also was thinking a lot while i was seeing the images of what you said sandy around like months and months ago and you probably said it years ago to about the necessity of spectacle an of of of like making sure that actions like look a certain way like as ridiculous as the actions looked in washington. They were really really effective. And so there's so much planning into what happened like it wasn't by fucking accident that a guy with no shirt on with a big fucking buffalo head thing Was going to be the focal point of of the of the day. That wasn't by accident. That was obviously planned by some sort of planning group. Which of course we never hear of. But i guess maybe i'm overreacting because it was a coup coups over the so it's all done right. Who is over. I mean at least the end of the day. The coup was thwarted rate. Right that away from the situation. I mean please do not pay attention to the fact that there were a bunch of cops in the crowd and now as of sunday night. Police departments across the united states have announced that they now going to do Some sort of investigation into their own ranks about whether or not people from their own police departments were there and and don't don't think about the connections to the military and the national guard And the fact that even the woman who was killed was a member of the national guard at one point. Don't think about those things the coo over. Okay it's done The the attempt was that moment it was disorganized as we've laid out earlier and and nothing and and it's done it's over. That's how coups happen. A they literally wanted us to believe that the guy with no shirt on was like trying to be like you know the leader of a coup. Right this is spectacle. Yeah yeah. I mean like look again. This is an organized movement and so not not only. is it. The case that this happened on the six there were other things that were happening at the same time. There must have been like. That's just kind of how this stuff works and so the real questions are. What were the negotiations happening. Behind the scenes that resulted in what happened. A congress leader where a number of republican members of the senate and the house Flipped how they were going to vote on the objections to affirming the elections and a number of them didn't number of them were stalwart in there..

"But i did. I think it was the washington post has said that it was at least twenty thousand people. Salt lake dot for me was like clue number one that this was going to be covered in a very different way than other events and i think it is so interesting interesting as i mean difficult word in french interesting always means good so i'm always hesitant to say something interesting when it's not but i think it's very interesting that you were asked a so many times to compare what happened there to be marches and rallies as if there's any parallel i mean you can just as well ask mr smith You've been organizing the local. Santa claus parade in pittsburgh every year. How does this compare to that. You know like. I mean i'll give you even one better in the initial. Just as it had happened i was like. Oh gosh get better get myself together. Because they expect expected to be called. And i was on this interview While it was still ongoing were someone asked me so what about the counter. Protests are you are do you think. Are you planning like do you know of other. Blm activists who are planning protests. And i was like what and that was a common theme early in the day that people were like okay. So now what spiel. I'm going to do. And i'm like i don't think you understand anything about this political moment if you believe that just because some white supremacist folks are out there. Trying to throw to take down the government. And i don't know fucking fuck all this shit up. That black people are going to be out there like this is not us folks really have this commitment to believing this. Both sides is that their symmetry to these movements. When that logic makes absolutely no sense. Like i was florida i was like no no. No there will counter counterpart. No i'm at home will be for the future going anywhere and i don't think any beal activists are going anywhere. Yeah well it speaks to a complete ignorance on what the point of putting yourself in the street is like why does take over a street. Why does bela march. why why. Why does.

"Movements haven't been i think there's been a lot of really amazing left wing. Movements that have had a lot of oxygen given to their movements from various events. Offensive happened across twenty. Twenty but the far-right was definitely ready for pandemic. And the way that it morphed from being neo nazi neo-fascist or proto fascist or white supremacy or all of those together in different kinds of movements especially in canada tied to resource extraction and the environment the way that that has all morphed into this glob of people who are now talking about the masks in vaccines and and and things that actually 'cause active harm to a lot of people of a specialized especially racialized.

"Really doesn't need an introduction for me. But I'll give him one. Anyway. One of the smartest people. I know. But he's more than that, he communicates beautifully. It's one thing to be smart. He can't communicate it then you're talking to twelve people like some of my friends over at national review. And by the way, that's not your problem. Victor I'm saying that out of my mouth. So Victor Davis Hanson is a breath of fresh air. He's kind of magnificent new book out called the case for Trump. And as a result of writing this book, of course, he's being attacked by the usual types. But on the other hand people who read it and people who have an open mind, I really enjoying the book Victor Davis Hanson. How are you, sir? Very good. Mark. Thanks for having me. Well, it's my pleasure. Tell us at least to the extent you can in a short period of time. What is the case for Donald Trump? Case was that he he redefined the Republican establishment orthodoxy targeted some electoral states with the message. We haven't heard that have free trade it has to be fair in the industrialized interior of the country was not spent and should not be given up on. And there was a nobility about people. Even if they were out of work, and then he said that the you can't have a country unless you have sovereignty, and you can only have sovereignty if you have secure borders, and the Republicans have been as culpable, the Democrats, and then he said just because you have to tactical victories in optional wars, doesn't you sold and strategic resolution, our success and more importantly, Mark. I think he there was a method to his message messenger was important. He's credit said I'm not gonna play by Marcus Queensberry rules anymore. You guys have lost five out of the last six elections popular vote. You haven't won fifty. One percents eighty eight and part of the problem is that you wanna accommodate the world, and I'm going to confront the media, even and that was his message and the kind of depart redefined morality to even though he was conflicted person with a lot of baggage and skeletons in the past he said, it was a moral thing to let people have economic opportunity in the inner city Hispanics working class whites. You get down as low as it is you GDP growth, you get energy, and it gives people new sense of self. That's a moral statement itself. And that's why I'm confused about the never Trump entire thesis cities and amoral person, and yet very moral people could not do what he did to help people. The morality they're different aspects of morality, personal, morality and public morality. And I don't know I'm getting an echo in my ears, Mr. producer and. We give a pass to public immorality when people tell us they're going to do things. But then don't lie about it. When people tell us that certain things, they're doing are this way or that way. And it seems to me Washington and people even even so called journalists and thinkers and writers who are appendages to Washington. They don't really address that in morality do they victory. They don't I always go back to generals George Patton was on. Cu we were so brilliant out of dates with sneak cared about a soldier's. He save thousands of lives and a very sober judicious and good, man. Homo broadly, personally impeccable credentials, but he was incompetent and the often did things cost people's lives. And that creates a dilemma you were talking about Mark that there is a public or professional morality, and then there's a private we'd like to have both. But in this life. We don't always get that. And I think it required a little bit of patience to see what Trump is. And after the book is written. I I have more respect for him because I've never seen. Anybody get up in the morning and be subject to that level of vituperation. And venom, and I never knew what I slow motion American coup. Would look like I thought it would be impossible. But the last two years, I I'm seeing now what a cool in America would look like the demo laments clause. Twenty-fifth amendment Mueller to McCabe palace coup trying to subvert the electoral college. I guess that's what it looked like I've always been curious to see if whatever happened. It's happening before it is grotesque and this this attack on Trump from all quarters. Now, you have Nadler with eighty one people and it affects campaign manager pass campaign manager, his pollster his family members executives in his business. Anyone they can grab their they want to destroy his family destroys business destroy his presidency. These Soviet tactics. Well, let me ask you. Do you agree with me these are like Soviet tactics? I do. I mean, I don't think it's on both sides as people that ever Trump. When Obama was negotiating, not Florida Iran deal. You didn't see the Republicans colwin Tony Risco to testify about an old land deal where Obama didn't pay. Taxes on basically a gift of land. Or they didn't get Reggie love to testify that Obama was playing spades during the bin Laden raid. He said he was bored. That's what he said that out because what would be the point of it when the president even though he's negotiating something that's detrimental. There was some degree of decorum. But when you have that split screen when Trump is in North Korea. Then you had this pathological liar. Calling saying all of these things couldn't be substantiated proven later going to prison for line. You weren't weren't. We're in new territory right now, I've never seen anything like it. I haven't either and even the cavenaugh hearings. It just shows you that there are no limits to the tyranny of this party and look right now. You'll have this congresswoman from Minneapolis Saint Paul. She is obviously an outright bigot an anti Semite and the democrat party can't gather itself together in order to condemn her. They can't even gathered themselves together to have a mealy mouth condemnation. What do you make of that? Well, I think they don't want to because they understand that she's doing it. And she's doing it again. And again, and again because it pays political dividends not just in her district. But in her perception of this new progressive wing of the Democratic Party, this new demography this diversity. They never really confronted the idea that it was a strong antisemitic element to that entire project Louis Farrakhan posed with Barack Obama and a picture of the black caucus in two thousand five which was suppressed, but there were elements within that. And nobody's ever really address it now they're terrified because. If they address that anti-semitism, which is at the core of the new project progressive project, they think they're going to have an open civil war. And they're not sure where the majority is my Democratic Party, they might condemn it. And then find out that fifty one percent of the new Democratic Party has no problem with targeting Israel for on do censor and vituperation. That's what. That's the problem that they do it because it works for them. And they're never gonna they're never gonna stop it until it doesn't work, and it won't not work until people rise up and say shame on you. But we're not there yet now, and they don't seem to be able to be shamed. The book is the case for Trump. Now, the reaction to your book has been predictable in certain quarters has it not. I mean, a lot of support from people like yourself and conservatives talk radio and mainstream conservatives average people and then fear and the New York Times for a repeal. We're kinda misrepresentative Bookham told tomorrow, but never Trump bore coming out with the big broad. So it's pretty much if you try to be analytical and say, you know, I'm not just going to ride a propaganda pro-trump or propaganda, anti Trump. I wanna analyze how he got elected how well he's done in comparison to other administrations, and what the future lies been suddenly, you know, and if you come to the conclusion, he's doing pretty well that that just drives people crazy, and it drives that now I wanna hit that. Yeah. Do you get the sense? Like, I do that some of these never Trumpers, and there are few in number, but they're very loud. And they're very prolific. Do you get the sense that they almost have a mentality? Like the like the new left that is they attacked people. Personally, they spin with the person says, and then they claim that you're a sellout. They do. And I I wish I it was just on principle. But the problem with them is it positions that they've held their entire lives. They're now saying that they are no longer supporting because Trump's footprints are hand France has contaminated them, and then they're making. But they don't make this argument that Trump is a moral that the issues don't matter anymore compared to other presidents, but my God, historically, ignorant. They have no idea what what went on FDR White House or what Truman said what JFK did by that historical margin. Measurement excuse me. Trump's within the parameters I would go further. He's almost a boy scout when you compare him to some of these prior administrations of what they did to the media and so forth. Are was a successful president. I guess for many people think he was and he his daughter Anna was carrying on as a conduit between him and Lucy Mercer white was president and doctors were telling the nation that he has two hundred and forty five two hundred and forty five bloodpressure. Neighbor telling everybody was perfectly. Well, so they could sort of delude them before the forty four th that's the kind of stuff that happens in life. But these guys are they they've applied a standard that saw a Trump. It's absurd. And I don't know Mark. Maybe, you know, our listeners know, what is the motivation or the catalyst that makes them this at career disappointment that they were wrong that he wouldn't be nominated that he couldn't win that he would fail, and I give you my opinion. I honestly believe. I like that most of these people, I think most of them are pseudo conservatives, they don't mind writing about and talking about it. But they've been very much enjoy the world of Washington DC. And it's okay. If they're on the periphery, they don't mind their egos are stroked they're perfectly fine. But if you really get somebody who's going to do something about the things that they've written. That is intolerable. I think they're the ones who are flawed. I think that would that's a pretty good exit Jesus because that would explain why they maybe feel more comfortable than they ever have in their life when they've gone and been embraced by NBC and CNN and the left, I guess that's why they always wanted to be and they had it was stickier awkward, and now they're Trump derangement syndrome, and sort of allowed them to make an easy choice, and they feel pretty comfortable now in a way they never did apparently before. Now the case for Trump. What are what are the five? Biggest arguments for the case for Trump. The courts would be an example, right? Yes. He's he didn't nominate a Harriet Myers or David sooner. And that's one and he redefined fair trade free trade is fair trade and said, I'm for free trade, but the world's not some after Columbus gonna make it some after cool. And then he said China is not faded to take over the world suggest he's not going to do that. And forget that we're going to stop that. And that's really changed the dialectics on China. And then he said between the east and west coast is not news their country. They're not portables or not irredeemable Clinger's people with dignity, and we can give them jobs again. And this can be just as powerful and economic landscape is in Korea or Japan or China if we just play fair, and we all work at it. And then he said whether you like like to hear it or not we don't have a country when you have twelve fifteen million people who. The first thing they do when they enter as break the law and the second thing they do is continue to break the wall when they resided legally can you hold on? Hold on. I gotta take take a break in amendment, and we'll bring you right back because you're very compelling. Admit it. So that cybercrime is something that happens to other people.

"Davis Hanson, really doesn't need an introduction for me. But I'll give him one. Anyway. One of the smartest people. I know. But he's more than that, he communicates beautifully. It's one thing to be smart. He can't communicate it then you're talking to twelve people like some of my friends over at national review. And by the way, that's not your problem. Victor I'm saying that out of my mouth. So Victor Davis Hanson is a breath of fresh air. He's kinda magnificent new book at called the case for Trump. And as a result this book, of course, he's being attacked by the usual types. But on the other hand people who read it and people who have an open mind, I really enjoying the book Victor Davis Hanson. How are you, sir? Good, mark. Thanks for having me. Well, it's my pleasure. Tell us at least to the extent you can show period of time. What is the case for Donald Trump? The case was that. He he redefined the Republican establishment orthodoxy need targeted. Some electoral states with a message. We hadn't heard that free trade it has to be fair the industrialized impure the country was not spent and should not be given up on. And there was a nobility about people. Even if they were out of work, and then he said that the country unless you have sovereignty, and you can only have sovereignty if you have secure borders, and the Republicans had been as culpable, the Democrats, and then he said just because you have tactical victories and optional wars doesn't sold in strategic resolution, our success and more importantly, Mark. I think he there was a method to his message. The messenger was important. He's credit said I'm not gonna play by Marcus of Queensberry rules anymore. You guys have lost five out of the last six elections popular vote. You haven't won fifty one percents since eighty eight and part of the problem is that you want accommodate the left, and I'm going to confront the media, and even and that was his mess. Message and he kind of redefined morality to even though he was conflicted person with a lot of baggage and skeletons in the past he said, it was a moral thing to let people have economic opportunity in the inner city Hispanics working class whites. You get unemployment down low. It is you get GDP growth you get energy. And it gives people new sense of self. That's a moral statement itself. That's why I'm confused about the never Trump entire thesis amoral person, and yet the very moral people could not do what he did to help people. Morality they're different aspects, morality, personal, morality and public morality. And I don't know. Getting an echo in my ears, Mr. producer and. We give a pass to public immorality when people tell us they're going to do things. But then don't they lie about it? Well, people tell us that certain things they're doing are this way when they're that way. And it seems to me Washington and people even even so called journalists and thinkers and writers who are appendages to Washington. Then really address that immorality. Do they victory? They don't I always go back to generals George Patton was on. He was so brilliant out of date and he cared about a soldiers. You save thousands of lives and a very sober judicious and good man, Homer broadly, personally impeccable credentials, but he was incompetent and the often did things cost people's lives. And that creates a dilemma you were talking about Mark that there is a public or professional morality, then there's a private we'd like to have both. But in this like, we don't always get that. And I think it required a little bit of patience to see what Trump is. And after the book was written. I I have more respect for him because I'd never seen. Anybody get up in the morning and be subject to that level of vituperation. And venom, and I never knew what is slow motion American coup. Would look like I thought it would be. But the last two years I see now what a cool in America would look like the moments clause twenty-fifth amendment. You're McCabe palace coup trying to subvert the electoral college. That's what it looked like I've always been curious to see if whatever happened, and it's happening before it is grotesque and this this attack on Trump from all quarters. Now, you have Nadler with eighty one people, and it affects his campaign manager pass campaign manager, his pollster his family members executives in his business. Anyone they can grab their they want to destroy his family destroys business destroy his presidency. These Soviet tactics. Well, let me ask you. Do you agree with me these are like Soviet tactics? I do. I mean, I don't think it's on both sides of people that never Trump's when Obama was negotiated not flawed Iran deal. You didn't see the Republicans call Tony ribs, colder testify about an old land deal where Obama didn't pay. Taxes on a basically a gift of land. Or they didn't get Reggie love testified that Obama was playing spades during the bin Laden raid. He said he was bored. That's what he said that out because what would be the point of it when the president even though he's negotiating something that's detrimental. There was some degree of decorum. But when you have that split screen when Trump is North Korea. Then you had this pathological liar, Colin saying all of these things that couldn't be substantiated proven or going to prison for line. We're in. We're in new territory right now, I've never seen anything like it. I haven't either and even the cabinet hearings. It just shows you that there are no limits to the tyranny of this party and look right now. You have this congresswoman from Minneapolis Saint Paul. She is obviously an outright bigot anti Semite and the democrat party can't gathering itself together in order to condemn her. They can't even gathered themselves together to have a mealy mouth condemnation. What do you make of that? Well, I think they don't want to because they understand that she's doing it.

But they do it because it works for them. And they're never gonna they're never gonna stop it until it doesn't work, and it won't not work until people rise up and say shame on you. But we're not very know. And they don't seem to be able to be shamed. The book is the case for Trump the reaction to your book has been predictable in certain quarters has it not. I mean, a lot of support from people like yourself and conservatives talk radio and mainstream conservatives average people, and then fewer and the New York Times, a we're kind of misrepresentative book I'm told tomorrow, but never Trump bore coming out with the big broadside.

"The Michigan congressman for the tenth district, which includes his home of Dryden is with us this morning, and as we head into this final hour the Frank Beckmann show. It's good to to get his take on what's happening with the government shutdown. And I'm not sure when it's gonna end we don't see any hopeful signs, all we hear is arguing that his long as Trump paths that money in their five point seven for a border wall. This is unacceptable. That's a disgrace to American data that edited and and on and on it goes while while the president insists we need that for our own border security, and he argues that to people who have fences around their homes who locked their doors at night when they leave because they don't want people who don't belong in there to enter, and it it makes all the sense in the world to secure the border, but we cannot get it done the view this as a as just a an effort by the dams to. To make Donald Trump, look bad. So that he can not get his key initiative from the last campaign accomplished. And so that that will hurt him in his reelection bid. Is that what this all about? I think the big pirates about wreaking him make it difficult to get anything else done and the twenty twenty election you've seen the number of Democrats have already announced their life president every Sunday watch the base I have to admit that it'd be fun to watch other circuses. They all try to move further left of each other. And you know, I mean, we'll shortly thereafter based upon what they're talking about. We'll become Wheeler or something. But it's it's that that's already started. I mean, how many democrat candidate for presents? They have five or six early yet. Well. We're gonna find out. There's gonna be a big birther movement about Kamla Harris who I was just reading a story this morning that she may not be eligible to run for for president. But we shall see. We may hear some news stories about about where she was born and raised which was Canada. And we'll we'll see how that all plays out. But you're right. They're getting in line right now. Do you see any of the same from the Republican side? You see the president being being challenged? I don't I don't believe. So if you look at this stuff. The national committee and the committee for Trump are are working side by side. I don't think that'd be very difficult for someone to to try to take that on. And and basically take on both entities. So I I don't see any any any likelihood that's the case. I I can certainly tell you that I'm fully entertainment. What I'm doing? I can't recall inside Sanderson decide decided they want to get into it. It's it's a tough job. I mean, they're turned environment. It's a tough place to be. I mean, you're in the crossfire and all your friends and family in the crossfire twenty four seven. So you have to have a great desire to change in America. Take that up. And you know, I I don't recall a president at least in my lifetime who has faced this kind of opposition from people who seem to want to run him out of office and end his presidency early and have from the start. I mean when when you start from from that level where we're president is in office. He's elected by the American people, and the opposition party is doing everything it's can it can to undo that election. It's it's never been done before in our country it borders on it borders on South American coup stuff. Well, it's it's certainly it's only been destructive to cry. Getaway progress things I support an awful lot of policies the president administration. Not all of them had somebody talked about it. I don't necessarily agree with present size. But one this we need fundamental changes country. We were hey, Rog direction. And if you're willing to stand there, and the costs are pretty high the stripe is pretty high. And that's why the struggle going on here in Washington is is the change directions place but change a fundamental belief. That government is not the solution to everything you think is a problem around this town, someone says the problem with someone designed the program you want to spend a lot of money, by the way, that's your money. That's our money. That's the my work for never sending it here. Hiring bureaucrats spare money to tell you how to get a better. I'm not a problem solving Washington. You got now that's for sure. Congressman let's close with this Nancy Pelosi is insistent she will not invite the president to give a state of the union address on the house floor, where do you where do you see this going? Well, I also wanted a resolution. Join the finalizing predation here, she can't affect block that the president is not need Nancy Pelosi delivered an address to the American people on the state of the union I based proposal to the White House on auction that exists for him to do just that not a campaign rally actually, maintain the decorum of what a state of the union and do it. Elsewhere. I look into the details back their ways the president could do that. And make a significant impact on my talk. Nightside of the American people. This isn't about to Washington styles for deciding whether he gets to speak or not. So I think I'm aware they looked at options are still looking at going through the process to have that if the house chamber, but should Nancy decide this now what she wants what she can do. I think you should move it. Elsewhere and delivered. You you said you you don't want to get into where? But I'm thinking maybe the border somewhere down on the southern border. There's a lot of options do the southern border. Although so hard. I think he wants to get a large group of people in one place. Talk to listen to and talk about the priorities in this nation. Rather than how before? I think that. Options that are there that allow him to do that and still do that without causing all kinds of security issues. So I I I've advocated I advocated last week that they look at actions and unaware that they are of but advocated that the president is states is not new gadget closest to tell people at the state of this country. No. We can do that. Exactly. He's required to tell the people how he views the state of the union. And and I'm sure he will it at one place or another congressman Mitchell, always good to speak with you. Thanks so much. Sorry. I missed you Friday night at the charity preview here at the auto show. I hope you enjoyed your stay rejoined it. I I got to stay a few days in town before I pulled back Tuesday morning guy, the schedules turmoil enough that my eight year old came with me. And he's he's dad is this. We can do as we're juggling all the book changes caused all kinds of issues for everybody. But not minor refused compared to the people that aren't be paid, which is need your trash here than later. Hey, thank you for being with us, always appreciated. You know that we'll talk again soon.

"We fall prey to that immediate city. That's number two. We we are almost unable to report anything beyond five minutes and beyond today. And so looking too far into the future in terms of what the dangerous might be or looking too far into the past to try to understand. What's happened? It's just not given equal airtime. It's not given equal positioning in the newspapers. Number three. We've really limited the number of voices who participate in the mainstream news media. You know, I come out of this and academic background. And and came to journalism after a career in the army after career as a book writer and expert, and and when I started a doing journalism and nineteen ninety eight there were a lot of. People like me. Experts who gained greater facility in the news media. And I saw a lot more professors. Experts from non governmental organizations, and I hardly ever see them anymore on the air now on the air. Journalists are the experts. Well, I have bad news for most journalists. They're not experts, and they're particularly not experts. When all they're doing is covering the next five minutes every day. So they may be able to tell you every detail about Paul Manafort or bike will Cohen, or they might be able to tell you every detail about the ins and outs of the White House. But that is not the totality of the story. And so I think we really lose something in a limiting the number voices that are given an opportunity to speak. I think we impose our own worldview, and I say that, you know, with some hesitation because I think people often don't understand the way the media works. They don't understand the way television works. But here's the reality. Okay. The reality is that virtually ninety nine percents of media that most people consume in America is located in Washington DC or New York City, and those people who live in those places have a worldview, and that worldview is is imposed at it doesn't matter. Whether it's NBC or FOX, it really doesn't it's imposed it's imposed upon the viewer and we need to find journalism, which doesn't do that. And then last protest not been critical enough of the government, particularly under Trump. So since the presumption seems to be that the role of the media. Is to inform the public about all of the crimes of Donald Trump and all the failures of Donald Trump and everything about government becomes Donald Trump that we're not covering the national security community in the way that we should be covering them. We're not covering what they're actually doing what they're actually up to and we're confusing Donald Trump and his really lack of power with what are the really powerful institutions, which is the Pentagon CIA, the FBI those are the actual institutions that are powerful in our society. And we hardly give them coverage. And I know from experience that unless you can tie together something that the CIA or the FBI or the Pentagon is doing to Trump that is if you can't write Trump into the script, it's not news. So we have actual tangible affects of the way that Trump sucks. The oxygen. Out of the debate. And the way in which we cover Trump that I think ultimately has adult curious effect on our security because we're not getting sufficient information voices or coverage of matters that really, you know, that are the ones that really do matter for our national security, the ones that we really need to know about. We'll just in the last couple of minutes, William Mark. And I remember talking with Bonnie Frank Africa frequent congress he hit a long career and ask him. What he thought was the greatest challenge we have with our government. And he said the real problem is until we stop wasting money on the defense budget and start investing in our people and the raising the standard of living of the average American. We'll we'll never get anywhere. So do you think that the media that you'll critiquing in your resignation from NBC news are part of the problem in not? Pudding the guns and butter argument front and center. I'm not sure that it's guns and butter. But I think we need to cover more done. And so I do think that when the money and the resources are eaten up by national security, and again, it's national security. These days EM is broader than just the Pentagon. It's now the homeland security establishment that's in the intelligence community. It's the Veterans Administration. It's the department of energy nuclear weapons establishment. So we are not even talking about the Pentagon today. Now, it's really like an accounting Reuss that your don't know that we're spending nearly a trillion dollars a year on on national security. It looks like we're only spending seven hundred and fifty billion when in fact is a quarter more being spent and all these other agencies. So if I look at it overall, I would certainly say to you. We don't have a sufficient. Amount of coverage. I mean, we don't have it in in in the number of bodies that we throw at the problem. We don't have it in the nature of the way that the defense press even covers the defense department because even in the trade press, they're talking about you know, Lockheed Martin does this today. Northrop Grumman does that today this press release came out about this arms sale or or or this development and a weapon, and it's not really about policy? It's not really about what we're doing out there in the world. It's it's really stock market related industrial reporting. So even where we are paying attention. We're paying attention in the wrong way. And so I agree with congressman Frank that it's really important that we look at what is the most powerful institution in our society, which is the national security establishment. And ask ourselves whether or not we are putting sufficient resources into covering that institution. And I think the obvious answer to anyone on any side of the political spectrum under any president would be now. What do you? And I think you very much for joining us here today. Thank you for having me on. And again, I'd be speaking with William can who is one of America's premier military experts having served in army intelligence during the Cold War. He's written more than a dozen books and co authored the landmark top secret American Vesta Gatien encouraged the national bestseller of the same name. And he's latest books include American coup Marshall life and the invisible sabotage of the constitution and unmanned drones data and the Lucien of public welfare. And until recently, he was a military analysts reporter and consultant at NBC news before just resigning in frustration at NBC's coverage of President Trump and US foreign policy. We're gonna take a brief station break. We're back looking into. How Trump is spouting. The Kremlin line in rewriting the history of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Okay. Welcome back. I'm Ian Masterson. This is background briefing. Available. Twenty four seven a background briefing dot org and joining us now. Julia Davis, the founding editor of Russian media monitor which analyzes Russian media and the relationship between news and propaganda. A former federal officers she said with the department of homeland security customs and border protection as an acting supervisor.

Welcome to background briefing. Julia davis. Thank you so much for having me. Well, thank you, Jillian. And of course, in a way Trump's pull out from Syria has turned out to be too good to be true because he's now pretty much reversed himself, obviously under pressure from Senator Graham, and and military leaders, and I believe even he's on national security adviser John Bolton, but the Russian coverage that you have brought to the table in your article at at the Daily Beast is pretty amazing. Isn't it the way that on the top rated talk shows and their sixty minutes program, they sort of treat Trump is being delusional as as a joke is that is that pretty widespread? It is a pretty widespread impression at the same time while they mock him they still see him as is someone's day can that rely upon she'll bring forth, the agenda that they hope. Hope for for example, with Syria. Like, you said that they knew that he was ready to withdraw from Syria, but they very much doubted that that his other people in his administration would let that happen. And that was a pretty accurate assumption on their part that Trump was not be allowed to do it. But on his own they seem pretty certain that he would follow the same agenda that Putin would find an official. Well, the recent press conference held I think it was on says day where he said rambled onto ninety minutes. But if you can follow the kind of words salad that he's that. Ensues because of this sort of stream of consciousness what he said about Afghanistan was so crazy. I mean Russia used to be the Soviet Union Afghanistan made it Russia because they went bankrupt Friday in Afghanistan Russia, the reason Russia was in Afghanistan was because terrorists were going into Russia. They will right to be there. The problem is is a tough fight. And literally they went bankrupt and went into being called Russia again as opposed to the Soviet Union. You know, a lot of these places you're reading about now I no longer part of Russia because of Afghanistan. So I mean, if you can follow that what I think a lot of people have picked up on. And I'd like to your take on this. Julia is that this amazing coincidence because now Putin spotty United Russia is trying to rewrite the history of the Russian or the Soviet invasion occupation of Afghanistan. Exactly the way Trump is trying is portraying it. So a lot of people wondering, you know. Why Trump spouting the Kremlin line? Exactly. And what is so remarkable about this is that historically the Russians and the Soviets never attempted to portray? They invasion of Afghanistan has anything in any.

"american coup" Discussed on WRIR.org 97.3FM

"The Cold War. He's written more than a dozen books and co authored the top secret America investigation and co wrote the national bestseller of the same name. And he's latest books include American coup Marshall life in the invisible sabotage of the constitution and unmanned drones data and the illusion of perfect warfare. And until recently, he wasn't military analyst reporter and consultant at NBC news before just resigning in frustration at NBC's coverage of President Trump and US foreign policy. Welcome to background briefing. William Aachen, thanks for having me on so Bill. What's the? I mean, you main problem here is you've blasting the. NBC and the corporate media in general, I think for embracing US national security leaders and generals while ignoring the empirical threat of what they have wrought going on just quoting from your resignation. There is not one country in the Middle East that is safer today than it was eighteen years ago. Indeed, the will becomes evermore polarized and dangerous. So just just explained that the the difference between the generals and the president's who ordered the stupid wars like the George W Bush and Dick Cheney and the role of President Trump in that context. Well, I find it curious that right away off the gates here. We disagree because you failed to mention President Obama. No, I know what your response would be which is oh, well, congress tied his hands or the national security state was so powerful that he wasn't able to achieve his agenda. But in reality, the problem of perpetual war is that really a president is unimportant. And so the national security thing to national security establishment top secret, America, whatever you wanna call it that is running things running things in a kind of nefarious way. But I mean that we have. Gotten used to the state of perpetual war. And and and so Donald Trump not only hasn't really had any effect on it. He can't. And I can't imagine. Until we as a people recognize this perpetual war that exists. And even what it is. And then try to guys knows why. Continues that we're gonna be able to the president of the United States, twelve whatever party of whatever political type to actually have an influence or or God forbid even elect somebody who might have a clear view of what the actual problem is. Now, I prefer I think to talk about Obama then talk about Trump Trump as a buffoon. He's. He has no interest whatsoever. Educating himself as to the nature of governance or the nature of the world. So why talk about Trump at all? But we just had a president trait years who was a constitutional lawyer, a thoughtful man is intellectual somebody that the establishment of looked up to and and he was not really able to implement his agenda whether it was from closing Guantanamo to implementing nuclear disarmament, very thing that he was granted a Nobel peace prize for his first year in office. So so to diagnose what happened to Obama is a much better way to diagnose where we stand today. And and I think that what is the sad part of Trump is president is not so much in my mind, the fear of nuclear war. Some esscalation of some conflict somewhere in the world that isn't a predictable or. Even to be expected. It's more that we have given greater and greater power to the national security state in the national security establishment both by virtue of looking at them as the saviors of the American people from the president. But also because Donald Trump has sucked so much oxygen out of the political debate and out of the world that we're all stuck in this sort of vortex in which we can't report on normal things and Kander the deep questions because we're so stuck in the surface every day. Well, Bill, I totally agree with you about him. And then why you think he's the guy that doubled down on Afghanistan. Remember be said we took off the ball with Iraq. And I'm gonna do Afghanistan better. And look where we are almost eighteen years in. I I think Trump is right to question that war and pull out troops. You know, there's a saying that even a broken clock is wrong. Prices. Donald Trump is definitely your style. The broken about his broken as can be, you know, I think the Donald Trump's isn't Aram intuition is spot on. Should we improve relations with Russia? Hell, yes. You know, should we make our allies a pay more for their own defenses? Absolutely wire win young. God knows. Should we try to resolve the crisis? That's now over fifty years long on the Korean peninsula. Absolutely. So it's funny that most of what it is the Donald Trump fumbles into actual has some. For it. Just doesn't have the competence or the ability to implement it. Now what I find disturbing. Is that the establishment me jerk response to these Trump statements, and and and and and miss statement is so partisan overwhelming overstay their bloviating that that we can't even see the wisdom of anything that he said, and I certainly spent a lot of time in in the newsroom and NBC. But I don't think.
