The Implications of Dinesh's Film '2000 Mules'

"I want to explore today the implications of the film 2000 mules. And I want to probe them in their widest significance. Now, when I started the film, when Debbie and I kind of paired up with true the vote and we sort of began this project. A few months ago, this film, by the way, has moved at a very accelerated pace. My thoughts were that, look, if there are some important truths about the 2020 election, disputing, for example, are disproving that it was the most secure election. It would be really valuable to get that out. And it doesn't matter if nothing can be done about it, truth is important in its own right. So for example, if you have a guy, let's just say who committed a rape. And the statute of limitations has expired, there's nothing you can do about it. Well, but there's DNA evidence later that he did it. It's still valuable to know. So you want the truth to get out and that's an important reason you make a movie. It's a truth telling enterprise. And of course, the second objective is obviously to, if there is massive and systematic fraud, how do we stop it from happening again? How do we prevent it in the future? What measures need to be taken by the various parties, state legislatures, attorneys general secretaries of state Republican organizations, the RNC, the ordinary citizen, what can we do? To ensure that this is not repeated. This kind of horror is not replicated. Again, and again and again. But as I got into the movie and got into the just a sheer volume of the fraud and the magnitude of the whole thing hit me and it occurred to me that we are too hasty in saying simply let's fix it the next time.

Tim Cook Misses Obvious Point on Antitrust Laws

"Trend. What did you make of mister cook's speech this week? I respectfully disagree. I mean, my view is that we definitely need stronger antitrust legislation. Now, I'm not for breaking all these companies up reflexively, but there are a couple of things that are common sense. One, they should have some limitation on their ability to just acquire competitors. The whole idea of a free enterprise free market economy means that you have to have competition and some of these companies have just acquired their competitors. So there needs to be restrictions on mergers that are anti competitive. Second, they shouldn't be able to put restrictions on their own platform in ways that discriminate against sellers. And what a number of these companies are doing. And so I think that there needs to be an antitrust remedy to that.

Put this stuff. This should be, this should have been back in October of 2020. Right. There should have been on the front page of every newspaper in America and in the world. Because to me, as a take my word for it, there are very few people who know RICO better than I do. This is the core of a racketeering enterprise. This is what you need. You know, convict with this, but this is what you need to bring all the elements together when you have bribery, like I have a big chart that I should have brought with me.

I used to book interviews on radio and TV, so I've been on the other half of this as well. And then I worked for the tax foundation here in Washington, D.C.. It's just like it sounds about trying to enact good sound tax policy. And then I came back again. I'm one of CEI's boomerang employees, people who have been there left and come back.

'Wokedom' Goes Global as Glasgow Apologises for Role in Slave Trade

"Welcome to has kind of gone. Well, I won't say worldwide, but it's certainly gone international. We see it in Germany. We see it, we don't see a lot of it in France. Interestingly and happily. We see some of it in other parts of Europe, and we certainly see it in England. And it's interesting to look at it over there and see how it compares to what's going on over here. There clearly are some parallels, although obviously with the kind of British accent. So I wanted to talk about Glasgow, the city of Glasgow, which a couple of years ago, while 2019 commissioned what's called the Glasgow slavery audit. So they got a bunch of historians and they said that the wealth of Glasgow seems to have been accumulated through the tobacco trade, which was, of course, tied back to in previous centuries to slave plantations abroad, not slavery in England, but slavery in the colonies controlled by England, and so Glasgow apparently owes its current status and it's importance to this tobacco wealth that was seemingly illicitly generated through slavery. So my thought whenever I hear things like this is, okay, are you planning to give it back? Are you planning to relinquish the wealth that is obviously ill gotten gains as kind of like if you stole a bunch of paintings and there's still hanging up in your house? Well, return them to their rightful owners. But Glasgow is no intention of doing this. No surprise. Their idea is to turn this into one of those self congratulatory virtue signaling enterprises, how? Because they their point is a lot of streets in Glasgow. I named after tobacco barons who helped to build a city, and there are also monuments to the same barons sprinkled throughout Glasgow. And their ideas, let's take them monuments down, or at least consider taking them down. Let's consider renaming the streets. And as often happens, this kind of project kind of gets started. And pretty soon, it starts targeting people who shouldn't be

Did Hunter Biden Just Become Joe Biden's Fall Guy?

"How does Joe get away with it? The question is, what kind of a scumbag does this to his son? I mean, the answer is Joe Biden does it to his son. Hunter Biden was enabled. Hunter Biden was manipulated. I'm not saying Hunter Biden is totally a victim. He still can make his own decisions. But there is kind of a sliver here where you think to yourself, Hunter Biden was a proxy for a corrupt enterprise. That Joe Biden created. And Hunter Biden, with his substance abuse and his obvious degenerate lifestyle that he was participating in, Joe Biden probably saw opportunity a Joe Biden saw an opportunity to be able to manipulate his son who is suffering from addiction and we know from clinical data those who suffer from addiction are easily manipulated. And in some in like a really weird way, my heart goes out to Hunter Biden. Not because of all the moral degeneracy and I'm not saying he's totally a victim, but my heart goes out to him because he thought he was just doing what his dad wanted him to do. And he thought his dad was going to be there to help him out. Then maybe his dad's going to swoop in and fix all this from doesn't look that way, actually. CNN, Washington Post, New York Times, have come in and they've basically said this is going to be there. And look, I'm not, I think Hunter Biden has done plenty of things wrong, but you kind of look at this. You think yourself, Joe Biden put him on the field. Joe Biden knew that he was hurt. And Joe Biden still threw him into business dealings with the kazakhstanis. Into the business dealings with Chinese. Business dealings with Chinese oligarchs, with Russian oligarchs.

You're a former federal prosecutor. You understand how this whole world works. I want to ask your thoughts on the news yesterday. We didn't touch on this at all. Donald Trump filed a lawsuit yesterday. Yeah, and it's probably hopefully he's not listening. It's his best one yet. No. Is that right? I think so. It's the most conclusive comprehensive lawsuit. It's basically if you took the russiagate investigation with Devin and I ran and looked at it from a criminal perspective with Donald Trump has done is said, okay, how do I encompass everyone from Comey, Clinton, clapper, Brennan, and all the whole DNC crew on down? How do I get them civilly in federal court and the way you do it is you utilize this thing called RICO racketeering enforcement and corrupt organizations. We used to prosecute gangs under RICO's criminals. But what most people don't realize is RICO also has a civil function. So what he did was he took the RICO statute, which is permissible under by law and said, these guys orchestrated the largest criminal enterprise in U.S. history, but I'm suing them on my civil side of the house for, I don't know, $75 million. The whole point, right, is to get to discovery. Yes. Well, then also civil can lead to criminal. Absolutely. It can, but I think John Durham has got that covered. We can talk about that later, but I think what the president wanted to focus on was finally say, I'm not going after onesies and twosies here. I'm bringing everybody in, one federal lawsuit.

Dinesh Reflects on the Teachings of Thomas Sowell

"I talked a day or two ago about Thomas soul and it's for me it sort of refreshing to do this in contrast with critical race theory. And of course, there's a new book out on Seoul. It's called maverick a biography of Thomas sol, it's written by The Wall Street Journal writer, a Jason Riley, and I've kind of been making my way through the book. But as I do, it also flashes my mind back to my friendship with Seoul over the years. And the way that he has been a mentor to me. Years ago, when I published my book at the end of racism, this, by the way, is my most scholarly book. If you haven't read it, it's. A giant book, several hundred pages, 2000 footnotes. And the book was a little controversial because it talked about the reason why you have group differences in academic achievement and economic performance. It attributed those differences not to race, not to biology, but the culture. Even so, Glenn Lowry, prominent black scholar who was at that time affiliated with the American enterprise institute, another guy named bob Woodson resigned from AEI, they sort of, they broke with AEI and it was a supposedly all over my horrible book, and at that time I was, you know, this was only my second book. I was a young scholar, so it was kind of a problematic for me to have these luminaries distancing themselves from AEI was causing problems for AEI, but to my defense rushed the greatest black living scholar in the country, Thomas soul, who basically said that he had read the book extremely carefully, and it was the best book on race relations written since Gunnar modals classic work in American dilemma, published several decades earlier. Over the years, I got to know soul and his wife quite well, his wife is also an economist. And I thought interesting as I would talk to them about racial discrimination and they would go, you know, dinesh when people think of race discrimination cases. They think of the sort of classic civil rights situation going back to the 50s and 60s a black guy and a white guy apply for a job, the black guy is better qualified the white guy gets the job. Hey, that's racial discrimination. And they go out of a hundred cases dinesh today, only one or two I like that. The vast majority of cases have nothing to do with that at all. They are all based upon statistical issues of underrepresentation. So a black eye applies to our job. He's actually not qualified. He doesn't get the job. But then he sues and he claims that blacks are underrepresented this corporation and because blacks are, let's say, 12% of the surrounding population in San Jose, but he wasn't hired at this Silicon Valley company. They're obviously racist. They need to implement affirmative action policies, so both soul and his wife said that is actually the normative. That's the normal case that is now fought out in

Conservative Enterprise Institute's Myron Ebell on Biden's Oil Plans

"Well, let's start off here. The hot topic right now is the leadership from behind the Biden administration has finally made it to the fact that they say we're not going to take Russian oil. We're not going to buy Russian oil right now. We had already seen that happening from shale BP, Exxon and others. Tell our listeners what that really means and then we'll expand from there because I want them to understand really the effects of this right now and how the Biden administration is using that. I think there are pluses and minuses, the fact is that Russia is the world's largest exporter of oil and gas and it produces about 7, 7 and a half million barrels a day. Some of that goes by pipeline to China, but two and a half million barrels has been out on the market and shipped by tankers. So removing those two and a half million barrels from the market is that what's happening or is the U.S. just saying it's not going to buy oil from a tanker that has Russian oil in it, but we're going to buy oil that would otherwise be going someplace else, but is now being replaced by Russian oil. So there's questions about this band. If everybody bans Russian oil, then that will remove a lot of oil from the world market and it will have to be replaced or we're going to see even higher oil prices. So there are a lot of things to try to game out here about how this is going to work because there is some spare capacity in the world oil production system. Some of it's in the United States. Some of it is in Saudi Arabia, some of its United Arab Emirates. So President Biden instead of talking to the American oil industrial and saying, hey guys, I made some mistakes. Let's sit down and see what you can do to increase production. Instead he called Saudi Arabia who wouldn't take his call because they're angry about the cell up to in the Iran

Documents Reveal Feds Paid Media Outlets to Praise COVID Vaccines

"Cut 23 doctor Robert Malone, we have clear evidence the government has invested over $1 billion in marketing vaccines. And explicitly the CDC is acting as a political arm. It has weaponized public health for political purposes on the part of the federal government. Furthermore, governed in scientists as you know, we now have because of freedom of information act, the reveal that the government, this administration, this executive branch has invested over $1 billion in promoting these narratives in social media and in the legacy media. $1 billion, so first of all, Ron DeSantis held some sort of summit looked like something out of Wayne enterprises like bat cave where everyone has their own Zoom call and they did this really bizarre thing where the whole wall was like everyone's face on the Zoom call. Just really hope that no one had a, it's the guy from CNN that had that moment. You know what I'm talking about? Just hope that didn't happen. Toobin, Jeffrey toobin. Rochelle Walensky comes out, she says, look, science, it's gray. It's not black and white. So now she tell us that science has nuance, play cut 14. And then maybe the other thing I'll say is this area gray. And I have frequently said, we're going to lead with the song and science is going to be the foundation of everything we do. That is entirely true. I think public heard that as science is full science is black and white, the science is immediate and get the answer. And then we make the decision based on the answer. And the truth is science is great. And science is not always immediate. And it sometimes it takes months and years to actually find out the answer. Oh, really? Science is gray, like maybe the vaccine doesn't work for everybody or the vaccine might have adverse events, or maybe the vaccine actually might have resulted in some people dying or azithromycin or hydroxychloroquine or prozac very well could have helped people with COVID. Now, what doctor Robert Malone was talking about is a $1 billion going into legacy media companies to prop up the vaccine. There is going to be a steady flow of information the media does not want you to talk about our cover. Around all of this, coming out in the coming days, weeks, months and years.

Compromise is within reach. But will it be enough? Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia joins me and President Trump holds a rally for the two Republican senators and George's January run off, they cheated and they rigged our presidential election, but we will still win it, focusing more on his own personal grievances. Then in helping the actual candidates. It has to stop. Someone could get hurt. Someone's gonna get shot. Someone's gonna get killed. I'll talk to Georgia elections official Gabriel Sterling. Joining me for insight and analysis. Our NBC News national political correspondent Steve Kornacki Kimberly, acting senior opinion writer for the Boston Globe, Reuters White House correspondent Jeff Mason and Danielle Pletka of the American Enterprise Institute. Welcome to Sunday. It's meet the press. NBC News in Washington, the longest running show in television history. This is Meet the press with Chuck Time. Good Sunday morning. Considered what it's happened over the past week. Hospitalizations in the U. S. For covert 19 exceeded 100,000 for the first time. Daily cases of covert 19 exceeded 200,000 for the first time and the second And the third And the fourth The confirmed daily death toll from Cove in 19 exceeded 2000 for the second time. And the third And the fourth And the fifth And the sixth This past week Cove it was the leading cause of death in America. If only that were the worst of it. Robert Redfield, the head of the Centers for Disease Control, says December January and February will be the most difficult time and the public health history of this nation. I do think. Unfortunately, Before we see February we could be close to foreign 50,000 Americans and died from this virus. Made this exploding crisis President Trump gave what he said was quote may be the most important speech I've ever made. It was not about Cove it it was a 46 minute attack on American democracy. Was filled with the bunk claims false assertions and outright lies, charging that the Democrats rigged the election to steal his presidency that the president has chosen to ignore. The worst health crisis We faced in 100 years almost doesn't matter anymore. What matters is that both the good news, the emergence of multiple vaccines and the bad news. The rising case and death counts are accelerated. But until those vaccines get here, overwork, healthcare workers around the country are fighting a two pronged battle to save lives. More importantly, to convince skeptical Americans to finally take this deadly virus seriously. It's hard to come into work Sundays. Knowing that you're short. And Knowing that you're going to see people. We're tired..

"Monberg, executive director and acting editor of the American Conservative This summer, You've got a special issue of your Organizations magazine asking the question. What is American conservatism? Tell me about this project. Thanks so much for having me on Susan. I conceived of the project because there's a lot going on in our country right now, and it's unsettling times for Ah, a number of Americans. Everything having to do with the cove in crisis to the lock sounds to the killing of Joy George Floyd and the subsequent protests and riots and the presidential elections. A lot of people are taking the opportunity to really reexamine first principles. And trying to figure out where we stand as a nation and people on the right as the end of the president's term comes into focus are asking themselves. What is conservatism Has the president made an impact on the overall trajectory of the conservative movement and of the Republican Party? And so I wanted to take this opportunity to re examine those fundamental questions And back in the 1964 there is a seminal book that was dubbed the Federalist Papers of Concern. Autism by Jonah Goldberg, which examined that the definition of conservatism and it was put together by Frank Mayer, Bill Buckley, Russell Kirk a lot of the conservative luminaries, and it came out in 1960 for about six months before the presidential election, when very Goldwater as the Republican candidate. And it was designed to really be a book to pull together disparate strands on the right and hopefully bring them into one camp that would eventually coalesced into a vibrant political movement. It didn't succeed in 1964 but they did succeed, at least at the ballot box with the election of Ronald Reagan s O. I feel like we're in a time of transition on the right Right now We're figuring out where we're going Todo and it might not translate into Doctoral victory in November. But really, what we're doing is looking at the bigger picture and sort of examining the roots of where America should go as a country and what conservatism has to say about that, if one searches top conservative magazines on the Internet, there's a group called Thought Company, which ranked your publication number three and wrote this description. It's the magazine for the disenfranchised conservative, the one who was uncomfortable with the rash of false conservatives who have come to dominate the movement. That definition square with how you think of yourselves. I think that's pretty accurate. I mean, we were founded in 2002 as a group of conservatives that were opposed to the war in Iraq that wanted to advocate for realism and restraint in American foreign policy. And at the time that went against the grain of Republicans in DC specifically those connected to the Bush administration. They were founding purpose that was really even broader than foreign policy. It was to re examine the questions that we had that we believe had been ignored by elites in both parties since the end of the Cold War. There's sort of a confidence maybe a hubris in the end of history after the Cold War. And so we wanted to re examine questions not only relating Tio foreign policy but also relating Tio economic structures in our country. We wanted Teo, you know, essentially advocate for a conservatism and America that promotes a healthy middle class and strong and vibrant local communities and families continue to do that, And I would say that with the election of Donald Trump in 2016 We've been able to to shift from being a dad fly sort of off on the side who's served critical of where things are to being Mohr of Ah, major player in terms of participating in the national conversations because with the election of Donald Trump, interestingly enough, at least in the conservative intellectual world, reopened a host of new questions, particularly in foreign policy, political economy that has allowed us Riel opportunity to shape the future of the right. How are you, organized and funded, were funded by by donor supported predominantly 90 92% of our revenue comes from donors. We have a 2.5 $1,000,000 budget. We produced the Print magazine six times a year. We have about 30 stories a week on the website. And then we also do a number of educational programs. We have about 10 conferences and panel events a year across the country on different issues that we've focused on in the magazine. And then we also have a constitutional fellows program that we host for young and mid career professionals on the hill. And who are some of the people that our viewers will recognize who are associated with the American conservative. That's a great question, Esso in terms of our advice. Three board. We have Fox news host Tucker Carlson is on our advisory board. We have you've 11 is a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. We have David as rad of hair of Hillsdale College on We've got sort of a nice mix. We have our founders happy Cannon, Scott McConnell in a number of other voices that we've pulled on along the way and your essay in contributing to this seminar. Ah, Go through a brief history of the modern, conservative American conservative movement, and I want to do some of that with us well during our hour together, also want to talk to you a little bit about your own personal journey to conservatism. But you wrote, and it caught my attention before we can understand the nature of American conservatism and its relevance. For today, we must first define what we mean by America and what we mean by conservatism. Okay, so I'll bite. Let's start with conservatism. What is it? Yeah, right To me. Conservatism is an active thing. It's a practice more than it is an idea. And from my perspective, conservatism is the practice of conservation and cultivation. So then the question is what of course, are we conserving Ondas Americans? I think that It's it's conserving the great traditions throughout our country's history on that goes back to the founders, Andi even before that, to the first settlers that came to this country, but it also goes back to the great statesman. I think there's been a tendency within conservatism to say that that conservatism or America is only an idea. It's an idea that we can replicate an export all over the world, and unfortunately we've attempted to do that for a foreign policy. Quite often, It's gonna rise. So I think conservatism eyes more than just an idea. It's really the stories and the people that have that have taken part in the wonderful history that we have here in America. And it also stretches back to the Judeo Christian foundations of Western thought on Greco Roman traditions going all the way back to from Aristotle to Thomas, the quietness, you know all the way throughout the medieval tradition. And culminating in in America. And how do you define America? How do I define America? Well, I think it's it's important to understand that America As I said, it's not only an idea. It's also a place and it's a place that we call home and it's a place that we love. And there are, you know, basically, you know, it's it's It's a place and it's an experiment in ordered liberty and virtue, and we've had successes and failures. Throughout our history. We have seen the scope of government grow and contracts for small periods of time. And I think that the important thing when we're looking at America from a conservative perspectives, eyes, the goal is to really take the best of our traditions and apply them to the future. So it's not only a backwards looking exercise. It's really a forward looking Exercise, trying to cultivate the ideas from the path and implement them now in order to have a more adjust equitable, virtuous and free society. Well on that note, You also wrote that the first task of conservatives is to take stock of the country as it is not as they imagine it to be what he is saying there. Yeah, I guess what I'm getting at there is much of the conservative movement has had the goal of dismantling The new deal programs that were started under FDR because they inevitably led to what conservatives like to call the administrative state or the fourth branch of government. That's that's un elected and unaccountable to the people in a direct sense on I think there are very much legitimate criticisms to make of the new deal..

"Blogger for the American enterprise institute talking about price gouging and you know I wasn't one of those people who what when and I bought a year's supply of toilet paper mark and will fighting in the aisles over it by the way cosco for those who did not realize that toilet paper is not going to go away all sale toilet paper sales are final the cosco so you can get you're gonna have to figure out a different way to arbitrage than just returning it but when I went to my local Walgreens and I got a toothbrush in the toilet paper was behind the counter like it was **** or something and I can only buy one package of four rolls and it was like to wax what it normally is so I went with my god or or how do how does the government determine what the magic prices with the magic multiple is to say your gouging me versus somebody else is just trying to conserve by trying to find a market clearing price yeah well that's part of the problem the beauty of a market place it is that it is a place that brings a voluntary buyer and seller together to complete the transaction now if you're going to feel about all the transactions and say with the temperatures are price gouging and then that triggers the price gouging laws and fines and penalties but then who decides what price becomes price gouging compared to just a high price during emergency when demand is high and supply circle should well so yeah I mean the state usually come up with some formula but it's always just arbitrary and not based on any kind of economic logic that what a ten or twenty percent price increase would trigger price gouging so there's really no you know logic and then so that's one thing I will who determines what price gouging as and then the other problem is then you have to waste all of these activities sources of law enforcement to go out and prosecute people and respond to complaints and that often what happens is it's it's really small businesses that are the ones that get fined and targeted with these price gouging complaints it's usually not in a Walmart and target so that's another problem it is first of all yeah who decides the price gouging is how how do we justify spending all of these resources and then what about the small business sector to queues of it and they get fined and penalized and then maybe that puts them out of business and.

"We're speaking with Matthew Kennedy phone again three beacon residents felt the American enterprise institute in Matthew you write about the fight against socialism pretty good dot com and the fact that it ain't over just because the Menshevik is going to be the nominee enough Bolshevik the your your concern about about socialism even against the backdrop of the rejection of Bernie Sanders's candidacy right well I think we have three reasons to continue to worry about socialism and the first is Bernie it may not have won the nomination but he has driven the Democratic Party to the left and we feel that just in recent days the Joe Biden the topic a version of Sanders is a free college proposals and another version of the list of foreign bankruptcy opposes the Biden has definitely moved left far beyond where he stood as vice president another reason is that there is a developing infrastructure of socialism in this country you know whether it's parties like the working families party or whether it's the democratic socialists of America there's a lot of online media office in print media that is that explicitly socialist and decent petitions are affecting what we call the mainstream media as well you can kind of see the mainstream media taking on much more left going down to the when you look at something like the sixteen nineteen project of the new York times for example stated saying that America was founded on the basis of slavery and then finally we can't ignore the fact that Bernie is drawing heavily from young people in particular Asian voters and Hispanic voters and these groups are the two fastest growing groups in the country to that point about to Bernie's cachet with younger people also younger people who are themselves are candidates for office was they're successful the first time out or not those that tend to be you under forty and running in Democrat primaries and we've seen this in my hometown of Chicago for things like the Chicago city council tend to be socialised and some of them a self avowed socialists the same way Bernie Sanders is right and even if they lose you know they're young so they can come back and you know well socialism at the national level right now doesn't have much of a future cause real damage to the municipal level I mean just look at the chats about it and the young prosecutor liked it D. A. San Francisco and of course he's a prosecutor who excited the criminals that he felt that the the the social pathologies that could bloom the socialists are elected to office a very frightening Krasner in Philadelphia and king fox and in Chicago a two more examples financed by George Soros who in in part by George Soros's super pacs I mean there is this move on the left that sort of under talked about because we're so focused on Medicare for all in the green new deal but the move on the left to move to a culture of non prosecution at the local and regional level right and a man that's a sure way to to to get a resurgence of crime in this country which were already staying and and places like New York City for example so it's a multi faceted spread and it just doesn't go away if Joe Biden is the nominee of the Democratic Party there needs to be real resources intellectual resources.

"At the American enterprise institute their website their initials AP II dot org he is the editor of national affairs and good evening nice to have you on thanks very much for having me absolutely and you've written the most thoughtful piece though that has to do with the I suppose whatever happened to the days of Congress of making deals that led to passing laws suffice it to say there was a time when the there there was some a camaraderie that existed between Democrats and Republicans probably the the active friendship of Ronald Reagan and tip o'neill of may have been somewhat exaggerated but but they did they did they did get a log enough to at least two of the occasional thing even despite a severe ideological differences and a boy these days I'm not sure you could get a resolution passed by both houses of Congress saying that the sun rises in the east yeah I think that's really right you know it's easy to overstate how friendly think used to be but at the very least Congress has always been an institution that exists to enable some compromise some accommodation not just to enable it to compel it the idea behind Congress's their differences in our country and we need a place to work them out so that some progress can be made towards legislative solutions to public problems and are facing a time now members of Congress do not feel that pressure do not feel that input is not so much to agree but they disagree constructively in ways that point toward deals and I do think that something significant has been lost and its affect really shows in our political life and then there's another very important point did that do you make of that is there is no such thing as bargaining in public a lot of people of course I'm sure would argue that the transparency is the answer to everything and that we simply we simply if if we have problems we need even more transparency they failed to recognize the fact that almost every instance of progress what do you consider it good progress for bad progress but forward movement let's call in almost every instance involves people who start out by making certain public statements which are taken as intractable doctrine by some of their followers and then they sit down behind closed doors they say okay now here's what's on the table we give you this for this of the other side says well we'll give you that bad and and quote bargaining takes place bargaining does not take place out in the open and I think that's really important point did you make yeah exactly and part of what's happened in Congress is the move toward conspiracy now transferred to the matter of degree and of course you do need some of that you know whatever decision made in a in the smoky back grew more I guess they're not even allowed to be a non smoke filled room he's to his but AT and and so there was certainly a need for the beginnings of a move toward transparency in the nineteen seventies when these pressures began but we've reached a point right now where there are really only per formative spaces in Congress there are very few deliberative spaces there are no places to for members to talk to each other to bargain to deal to make compromises the only real protected spaces left are basically the leadership offices at midnight before government shut down and in fact that's where all important legislation end up getting made because there is nowhere else to bargain and negotiate so I days but if you're on the losing side of one of those discussions these days then it gets leaked to The New York Times that extend or if you're the other side of the coin to get leaked to the Wall Street journal but it gets leaked one way or the other yeah exactly and and so everybody understands themselves as a performer in that process rather than as a legislator and ultimately while there needs to be some transparency about the product of of bargaining a bargaining itself can only happen in private and if we believe in the constitutional purpose of the Congress the American Congress is not a European legislature it's not just the place where the majority gets to have its way until the next election it is intended to compel compromise and deal making and because there's no room to do that now Congress just doesn't function he you know I I I I've I've often wondered about that are we in an intractable situation here if well you know I think it is it is there something we could quote be done about this or is this just the inevitable outcome of of where we are yeah I think there are ways to address it if if it's recognized as a problem and those which would have to start particularly by changes to some of the procedures and processes that govern the Congress especially the budget process the the federal budget pressures that exist now it was created in the nineteen seventies at a time when it seems like Democrats would run the Congress forever and Republicans with more often be in the presidency and the budget process was designed to empower the Congress against the president in fact I was the Democrats against the Republicans we're no longer in that situation it's a very good thing we now have a Congress that swings back and forth between the parties and it needs a budget process that takes account of that and that rather than creating with this one big annual votes on a kind of message document allows members to legislate in an ongoing way throughout the year to make small inroads to make small bit of progress on different issues and in the absence of that members don't have much to do they spend all their time basically performing for the cameras in one way or another for their social media following they don't think of themselves in the business of bargaining and they're out of practice a lot of members by now have never even really seen the Congress function the way it's meant to and don't even know what it is they're not doing and if I did it the member I've I've had people complain to me about the the the the members of Congress don't do anything you never see a sitting on the house floor I've tried to explain to these people that in fact the course we've got a committee meeting is a good sub committee meetings and above all they've got meeting with constituents some some of whom by the way can be incredibly self serving and and and and even stupid I mean they they treat media congressmen like you would called nine eleven and to complain let's say that that your cell phone doesn't work or something yeah and they also spent a course a tremendous amount of time raising money in order to run for reelection so I have told people that in point of fact I don't care if your member of Congress is eighty you couldn't keep up with them for a week it's not a lack of work that we're talking about it's working on the wrong things exactly a member of Congress will lead very busy lives are very intense and very engaging a lot of things but these days they're not engaged in what we would consider the fundamental work of legislation trying to write laws trying to negotiate with each other trying to oversee the work of the executive branch an exercise the the core legislative powers that the constitution gives to the Congress in our system and again a lot of the reason for that is that they they are not given the room to do that and they are not ultimately taking the responsibility to do it Congress is weak there's no question about that but Congress is weak in large part because its members have chosen to make it weak they don't want the responsibility for hard choices they don't want the hard work of oversight and so that weakness then creates all kinds of other problems in our system of government when we think the president are over active or the administrative state there's too much our judges are over reaching a lot of that is actually a function of a Congress that under reaches in overnight and I would say constitutionally unconstitutionally under reaches for example of it you you look at let's say the closing of military bases will they can never get around to that because the public and I like to think of good old camp swampy as a local public works project not an effective expenditure of their military tax dollars and so they come up with these these tax of these these base closing commissions and which they come up with a plan it's up or down get get to make the changes to it or organ right rational pay raises Congress doesn't vote due to raise its pay anymore they allow third party to raise their pay and then they they simply helplessly say what can I do they forced the money on me but by far the most egregious example is what happens with the three letter agencies Congress doesn't have to write these laws anymore they write some broad over arching theme like the drug administration will deal with hang nails whatever and then the drug administration not elected Erik Kratz these are the people who write the specific rules by which we must live I argue that such a constitutional you got a law that says the secretary shall reduce the cost of prescription drugs well okay but what is Congress actually asking the administration to do that and then gets made by the executive branch and if if constituents so like if members of Congress can complain because of course not their fault they didn't make sure that it is absolutely a dereliction of our constitutional system it is the failure of Congress to take the responsibility for its own work and to then complain that the administrative agencies over reach is of course just preposterous yeah because we give them the power to over region and then it will never but like nature abhors a vacuum of they're gonna they're gonna take that power if it's had to do it would seem to me that that anybody with quotes standing whatever that's supposed to mean and lawyers speak anybody with standing could bring a case that simply says that Congress by doing this as unconstitutionally abdicated their authority and dare the Supreme Court to actually say something yeah I mean we're we're reaching a point where what's what's been called the doctrine of non delegation which the courts say that Congress does not have the power to delegate its fundamental legislative authority may well be tested in the courts and we now have a majority in the Supreme Court as of the last few years that could well in fact rule that these kinds of delegations are unconstitutional and create a situation where Congress that take responsibility for creating the laws that the agencies then only execute we're pretty far from that today in a court ruling like that would create a real new situation our constitutional system that could compel some rethinking of how Congress does business one eight six six five oh Jimbo is our number one eight six six five oh five four six two six as we talk about a pretty fundamental issue it is an issue that is not going to get a whole lot of time unfortunately in this campaign as we become familiar with names and and policies and the like and of voters that don't pay that much attention suddenly realize who in fact is running for president for the Senate and the house and so on but this is a pretty fundamental thing and it's the kind of stuff I might add that the American enterprise institute does so well they actually think about the real underlying problems and that you all live in our guess is director of social cultural and constitutional studies at the American enterprise institute you can read some of the stuff that they knock out which is.

"And a half percent Michael strain at the American enterprise institute says scary stories of hyper inflation past make people fear any rise in prices today we are used to thinking of inflation as a problem it's something we want less of but he says now the concern among economists is actually done a pretty dramatic flip to being concerned about too little inflation why do economists think we need inflation at all one standard explanation is that if prices stop rising consumers will hold back on buying stuff waiting to get a better deal but dean Baker at the center for economic and policy research doesn't think consumers actually planned that way suppose you're gonna buy a refrigerator and we'll just say cost a thousand dollars to make a really nice refrigerator and you go oh wait a second prices are falling half a percent a year so if I wait six months then I could save five dollars I don't think that's a very realistic story Baker says the most compelling economic argument for inflation has to do with interest rates and the federal reserve some amount of inflation to percent three maybe four percent turns out to be very beneficial because it gives the federal reserve more ability to boost the economy in a downturn here's what Baker's talking about to fight recession the fed cuts interest rates to lower the cost of borrowing money that's supposed to encourage businesses and consumers to spend and invest more jumpstarting the economy now there's a bit of complicated math here but basically interest rates are calculated in part based on the inflation rate if inflation sneers zero the fed doesn't have much room to lower interest rates any further so a moderate level of inflation gives the fed the maneuvering. room it needs plus Baker says steady moderate inflation actually encourages businesses to expand it from a car company thinking of building a new factory ago there's two percent inflation next year I'm gonna be selling cars for two percent more money two years out of the sun and for four percent more so that gives me more incentive to invest now inflation even middling inflation like we've got now isn't good for everyone people on a fixed income like

"american enterprise" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM

"To be a target this is at the American enterprise institute thanks for time I purchased thank you yet another indicator today that the after effects of the grounding of the Boeing seven thirty seven MAX aren't done trickling down through this economy Southwest Airlines said this morning it's going to speed up its consolidation at LaGuardia airport in New York shut things down at Newark because to quote selfless your Gerry Kelly it's really all about the Max it's the only issue Kelly said the FAA says there is no timeline for getting the Max back in the air and while Gerry Kelly has said he is empathetic to bones problems he's got his own company in her own right said researcher and chilling group to have a five part series out in the Harvard Business Review right now about the thing at the heart really of what is going on with Boeing and a lot of other companies in this economy the series is called broken trust thank you both for being here thank you thank you Sir let me start with you and ask you what might seem like a foundational question but I think it has to be asked how do companies earn trust to begin with and I and I realize there's lots of layers to trust but you know give me the elevator pitch Sir of first place you have to ask who is doing the trusting and so companies are trusted by customers by employees by investors of by the public by regulators and so they're always being charged but they really do have to have an attitude that I really want to be trusted by each of these groups but each one of these groups once a different thing for me and so I've got to figure out how I'm going to make that work that's exactly right socially let me ask you if I am a consumer of Facebook shall we say I want something different from Facebook then a Facebook shareholder once right Facebook sure older ones maximization of profits in a rising share price the consumer wants well first of all you know pictures of relatives and you know high school friends all this jazz but but also protection of data and not to be advertised too much and and and all of that that's exactly the tricky bit that companies are facing they have to balance all of these different needs to the classic case that Sandra night like two years to illustrate the trust problem is over for example so we trust you over to get us from point a to point B. right but on the other hand we don't feel good about it and the reason we feel so conflicted about it over is you know we don't feel great about how they treat their employees there is all the stuff coming out about what they've done to their competitor left and using really unfair tactics and so the point is it over is still in business we still use them because we trust them to be confident but you were has also suffered some some major losses like on it was pounded because all the news about the scandals came out lift started growing at twice the rate which it which has been to actually something I thought was really interesting in this series center which was the the popular conception out there and I admit I have it is that the trust the people in regulators everybody having corporations is fragile you to say in fact it's quite robust yeah that was I think for us the biggest all hall of the research we've done which is we all have this idea that trust is fragile that once lost it can never be regained but let me tell you a story about a company the completely proves why that's not true okay so the computer company so name is recruit holdings they are a huge at this point giant tech firm in Japan now in the late nineteen eighties of their founders started a scandal that was so large that the prime minister of Japan and his entire cabinet all had to resign their positions so the way that they went about this was that they went back to their customers and they admitted for that happened and they told the truth about what it was that they have done and how it was that they've learned from this about the kind of company they wanted to be so you can definitely get it back but it's not like it's easy to do that you know you have to do the kinds of things that a company like recruited well let me turn you now than showing to another company in the news a completely different topic completely different line of work Boeing witches had as we know a very rough six or eight months because of those two crashes of the seven thirty seven Max and we get now to the to the area of apology and getting trust back you to write the Dennis Malberg this CEO of of Boeing did not do a good job we shall say it in his apology tour as it were that's putting it lightly yeah well I was I was I was being gentle but okay he he did a terrible job in the apology how how bad was it and canned Boeing recover from this and I should tell you just for the record he would try to Mister Malone we're gonna talk about this and and Boeing has declined politely but anyway so so can Boeing or cover what are they doing I. next get past this line to Sandra because phone service today yep so we are Boeing the reason why the apology but is so awful virtue big thing this one is it really didn't focus on the people who they harmed and so if you've done something where more than chicken of three hundred people lose their lives in two airplane crashes the very first thing the public wants to hear is that you are so unbelievably sorry the second step is to tell the truth about what happened and so the problem with Boeing is that you've got all these investigative reporters finding all kinds of things now that automatically is going to be in that you don't think you can trust them because if they're not going to tell the truth about what they did wrong how do you know that they know what they did wrong or that they could even fix it trust can be kind of amorphous right show how do you define it I guess just as as a way to wrap this up so trust is actually a willingness to make yourself vulnerable to the behaviors and intentions of one other person or company and all of these companies we've been talking about they have indoor miss power over all of the stake holders that depend on them and so that's why trust is so important it's why we care about it so much it's because we've given this power away and we want to make sure that it's being used well center Sucher Angeline got the at the Harvard Business School a five part series on trust in.

"Of the American Enterprise Institute at least for a little while longer. He's he's leaving the organization that he started. And he's going to become a professor at Harvard. Welcome to the program. Thank you. To see see you. So we have to start with a very longtime lie we've been living. What is a student? I both have very difficult time. And we just for our friendship sake. We want this. Okay. Okay. Let's get this fixed. We both have the worst time. We call you Albert Brooks all the time. I hate it. Nightmare of your life. Yes. So two years ago. I was at sort of camp thing for lots and lots of guys and we're all hanging around. And I looked laughter. Run a campfire. There was sitting Albert Brooks. And and and and I said you're helper Brooks, they said, what's your name is? Arthur Brooks said I said, yeah. And you know, what else people have been calling me Albert Brooks since I was a kid is like ten years older said since I was a kid because you're so famous, and he looks at me doesn't crack a smile and says imagine how Adam Hitler felt. So if we can haul you Albert. I've been here. My whole life. Hitler. Every time we talk to you. We look at each other like, Arthur, Arthur, I know Arthur, Arthur how it's terrible. I'm doing fine. He's funny. But I like I'm a huge fan of move. I don't know why. No, Albert, Einstein is real name. Shut up. I'm kidding. I'm not kidding you. It's Albert kidding. You're not kidding promise. I'm not kidding in. What happened is he changed to Albert Brooks? Because he you're not gonna go into show business Albert. You should change your name, Albert Einstein. I should say my arthritis. People will call. All right. So Arthur, you have a new documentary out, and I have seen. It is really good. Really good are. We were talking the other day about Buddha judge, and he is the the he's playing the nice guy. Right. He may be a nice guy. Don't know anything about him other than you know, what you read about any seems like a really nice normal guy guy comes out and says, yeah, I'm gay, and you know, what I also eat chick fillet. I like it. Right. And it's it's a guy who's coming out. Now and saying, you know, I I don't hate everybody. You're supposed to hate that fighting fire with water and that usually works generally does particularly after a period of of hate polarization. The the reason that that actually can work right now is because ninety three percent of Americans say they hate how divided we become a country and every single person listening to us right now love somebody with whom they disagree politically. But there's a class that's getting rich and powerful and famous largely in politics. Media on campuses saying you gotta hate people who do you disagree with their deviant? They're stupid. They're evil in our hearts. We know that's wrong in this movie. You talked about in the pursuit this movie. We sit down with people who call themselves democratic socialists. They're awesome people the great people that they love their fellow men and women I have different policy ideas. I think I have better ways to get their objectives. But they're aren't wrong and most people know that and so Pete put a judge in a few other people are actually going are are they're trying to rage against the contempt machine in this country by saying you want something better the product is crummy. I'm going to give it to you. We'll win it even get past the people who are making an awful lot of money on outrageous real complex. Yeah. Yeah. We don't know. Here's a here's a clip of the pursuit.

"So Arthur Brooks, he is the president of the American Enterprise Institute. He is also leaving there to become a professor at Harvard. God bless you, man. And he's a producer of a new documentary called the pursuit, and it's all about the free market system. It is something that everyone should be watching. And especially if you have people who are democratic socialist or socialist or your kids in college, they should watch this. It has the heart that the free market system should have when we're selling it. It's not all Faxon and statistics, it has a lot in. However, it is really more about lifting people up from poverty, and it comes out in a few weeks. Yeah. Does well in showing all over the country right now. So it's in screenings in about one hundred communities, we're in three international. Film festivals. It'll be on digital platforms starting this summer. And it'll be on Netflix starting in August. Oh, wow. Yeah. Yeah. I'm so happy about that. My whole career has been dedicated to trying to lift people up toward equal dignity, and the limitless potential that people actually have the free enterprise system exists. And the reason we should fight for it is only because of that it's not for us. You know, it's not for for Stu and Glennon, Arthur because we're very lucky people were prosperous people. And and the truth is we could prosper under system socialism. I don't want to it wouldn't be fair wouldn't be right. But we could who who needs capitalism who needs free enterprise, the people who are still at the perfect our society. We gotta fight for them. The next two billion people they need us. And when I talk about this film is how you with with proper regulation, obviously with morals because. You can't have markets without morals. If you do they'll be ruined the ruined everything. And if you have these things than you can be a force for goodness in the world and showing that bringing people together listening to everybody what a joy, it was to make this picture. So Arthur, let me ask you. Let me ask you this. We are sitting in a really interesting time, as you know, that I was not for Donald Trump. To put it mildly in the last very vocal about that. I have I've watched him. And I still have the same concerns that I've always had on many fronts on other fronts. He has done what he said he would do or more, for instance, on Israel. It's been crazy. He's also done things that I thought he would do and frighten me like the the trade barrier. Right. We have. When it comes to this next election. If I am faced with one of these social Democrats or one of these people that are even dancing around the edges of saying, you know. Yeah. Well, we gotta get rid of the free market system. You know, eventually, I mean, I I know who I'm going to vote for how do we square this with? With what we're facing because what we're facing is the end of the west and America, as we know it we've had threatened threats from socialism forever in this country. It always comes back. Maybe in the nineteen thirties. Yeah. Nineteen thirties. But after every financial crisis it comes. And so if you see after the eighteen ninety s to financial crises that were just hard core. Eighteen ninety to nineteen Ninety-six silver busters railroad bus just as bad as what we saw in two thousand eight worse as a matter of fact, and you got William Jennings. Bryan was this left-wing populace to also was anti immigration anti trade and all the stuff that we don't like populism both, right and left. This always comes around. And this is always our opportunity for those of us who believe in the promises of democratic capitalism to lift at the world, you gotta look at these times. And you say this is an opportunity. Look, you're the quintessential entrepreneur not just in media in a bunch of businesses because you believe that when you look around you say something's not right? That's an opportunity to build something. Good and true. So if we look at the idea Konomi today, we say all these people all these young people say the capitalism is a sham that socialism is a better as a better system. You've got people running for. President you have leaders in congress were espousing democratic socialism. That's our opportunity because that's when the conversation is right. So I look at this. And I say man, I am so lucky to be alive right now. I'm releasing a movie on major digital platforms that talks about how capitalism is a beautiful system for helping the poor. It couldn't be better timed and all of us can do that. Glenn Beck is an apostle for democratic capitalism. And you're gonna get a better bigger audience listening to the fact that you believe in global brotherhood not in global profit. And that's the reason that you stand behind the free enterprise system. It's a look there will be bad things happen. I got it. But there's going to be good things that happen to and let's focus on all the good things that we can make happen. So how do we? How do we make the impact? How do you have the conversations because because quite honestly, I feel when I go to Silicon Valley, and I know what Silicon Valley is. But. A lot. And you talk about your very sophisticated talk about technology. So I go there, and I feel in some ways that I am in a place that is more America than America because their group of young people who are like, hey, I have an idea, and they just do it. And it changes the world it is truly free market. And the ideas are so exciting, and they're so big. I mean, they're talking about changing the world. It's it's dynamic. Where are those people on our side? Where are the people? We are good. At articulating. I mean, I kind of came to a place. Arthur, I if I could do my whole career over again. Yeah. What would you do you? I would be I would be like you start by playing the French horn and not making your own. Kicked out of college. I you know, I was the what third or fourth most admired man the year. I went to FOX from CNN, you know, that that's a people. I was tied with pope and Nelson Mandela, that's crazy. I don't know. This is a commercial for America here. So. Voted for you. So when I went to when I went to FOX saying the same thing, it all change, and I became this political figure politics is at the back end of the dog. And not the front end, and you are pigeonholed into something that is is ugly and grotesque, and I kind of came just recently too to the feeling that we, you know, we all have we all have our own gifts, and we all have our own positions. And I've not liked mine. Mine has been warn people. And I hate that we're up an alcoholic family. I don't like conflict. I mean, look at me. I'm yesterday dragging me through the mud saying that I said that, you know, Muslims attack Notre Dom, which is the compasses of what I said, you know, I'm always in the centre of conflict, and I hate it. But my role is to warn people on what's coming, right. Your role is to help us out and say, here's the path forward. So what is it that we say to our friends, what is it that we have to change? You know point to the the bright horizons and say look at this person look at what's happening here. Look what's happening here. Where's our course? Our course is self-improvement than Merican religion that you are the master of yourself. And that's what we're on the cusp of reviving this happens a couple times a century the United States it hasn't happened for a while. We're really really right for it. And look you and I are in the same business because you are a self-improvement guy. You are a man of the revolution of the individual heart after the end of the nineteenth century when you America was beaten civil war tons of poverty, financial crises polarization, populism kinda like now except worse in most ways because we were much poorer country. That's when the self-improvement revolution really swept across this country. And what that was was entrepreneurship of each person the startup of each life. And that's what we really need to bring a culture back of hearing. If you want people. To stop. They want young people in campuses to stop talking about socialism. You have to help them are the master of their feelings and their the master of their fate, which is empowering it's encouraging if aspirated and here's the best part. It's true. It's america. It's why Jordan Peterson so pop. That's why Jordan Peterson is popular by the way that you think that you're just Zeke, he'll, you know, your your profits. Like, you know, the end is near. That's not true. You know, your courage in person when I watch you a real issue number watching for years and years CNN FOX, and since you've been on your own this incredible entrepreneurial venture, your aspirational person because you believe in the goodness of this country. And you believe that everybody listening to us everybody who's on the other side of these mics, they they're they're triggers their own lives to the true enterprise of life in America is each person listening to us, and we we can get back that culture, then then we're off to the races. And that's what I wanna start. And I think we're man I think were on the edge of. I've written. I read this book called the pursuit started the movies the pursuit. I wrote love your enemies, which came out one month ago. Love your enemies, Matthew five forty four. It's how you can be an entrepreneur by loving, your enemies. It went on the best seller list. That's that's very encouraging to me because people are homegrown for it. So the people are listening to us. Okay. What are you going to do? What's your paternity? Somebody's gonna treat you with contempt with nastiness your opportunities to treat people with love case standby get into that in specifics.

"At the American Enterprise Institute, and Michael you're just you just wrote in the Washington Examiner a week ago. Suggesting that Pakistan has now supplanted Iran as the leading state terror in the world. State sponsor of terror. I should say excuse me. Thanks for joining us what that was prescient epilepsy. This this this is a competition without winners, of course. But if you just look over the last month, you've had major terrorist attacks in Iran in Afghanistan, where more than one hundred Afghan soldiers were killed and then in India where forty Indians were killed and the one thing that all these terrorist attacks have in common is they were all sponsored by groups which are based in Pakistan. And now we see this story that emerged this morning Pakistan says it shot down these two Indian jets. They're holding one of the pilots right now. I guess as a hostage or prisoner of war. That's a huge escalation between these two nations. That is a huge escalation just a little bit of background Larry over the last three years. There have been seven cross-border attacks from Pakistan into India, which have cost mass mass casualties now starting about two years ago. The Indians responded for the first time by launching airstrikes into Pakistan, and that was pushing the red line. Beyond which had been pushed before. But the Indians basically said enough is enough. You can't continue to sponsor terrorism. Like this. Now, what's happened is India responded this time? Most people think India was responding a little bit symbolically they were bombing. But they weren't going after buildings and so forth. They were just showing that they they were angry. And then it seems that something that one of their aircraft crashed. And so this is ramping up. Tensions supposedly prime minister. Modi India's leader has left his national security emergency meeting and said the army can do whatever the army thinks is necessary to do. Yeah. But just remember, of course, both India and Pakistan are nuclear powers rigs. Exactly. And of course, this goes back to the nineteen forties Pakistan after India declared its independence from Great Britain the United Kingdom, I should say Pakistan, then carved itself out because they wanted to be a predominantly Muslim nation. And they really haven't had peace effort really since. Then there's always factions warring factions across the border there aren't there. I've traveled a lot in Pakistan and the mazing thing about traveling in Pakistan. It's Pakistanis having unique ability to start wars with India and convinced. Themselves that the Indians were the ones that. And we've seen this repeatedly over the years in the six starting off from the beginning in the sixties, and so on now we've had India and Pakistan almost come to blows before most famously. I think it was back in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight when the Clinton administration negotiated them back from the brink the point is this. However, it's all well and good to negotiate the two big power back from the brink. But if Pakistan if we still keep turning a blind eye to Pakistan and its support for terror that's a problem in in one other thing most people don't realize India is, of course, the world's largest moxie, and it's about to be the world's largest country by population. If only ten percent of India, we're educated and middle class that would be the population of Pakistan when you talk to Pakistanis there on a trajectory to failure India's on a trajectory to success, and this is making Pakistan, all the more, desperate. So how does this get resolved? I mean, this is an active. War. If if we're to believe the headlines suggested is a possible that these two planes crashed instead of got shut down or one of them crashed in the other one then got shot down. Or is that still murky right now, it's still murky and we're find out what happened. But no matter what happened, especially if the Pakistanis have an Indian pilot. That's a serious issue. Now, just one caveat when it comes to Kashmir this disputed area when Pakistan carved itself out from India the way it worked was basically you could join India, a multi-ethnic multi-religious, democracy or Pakistan land for the Muslims. And usually it was the head of the state each of the local states that got to decide the thing was in. Kashmir. The head of Kashmir was a Hindu. The majority of the population was Muslim. So the head the the head of customer said, you know, I want India, Pakistan, said no, fair and invaded. Kashmir. And so this disputed area has been divided ever since nineteen forty eight, but it's important to point out that the laws and the constitution and the way India goes about its business. A no way discriminatory against Muslims. Every there's there's no second-class citizens there. I mean, that's part of the culture, and it's part of their history. You're absolutely right. Larry most people don't really even realize that in terms of the largest Muslim countries in the world, the largest Muslim country in the world is of course, Indonesia second is India in India, isn't he? Yeah. Exactly. So what is America's interest in this? Click clearly we we have quite a bit of interest with both countries for different reasons. Again. I apologize historian by training, which means I get paid to predict the past, but initially when India and Pakistan divided the United States the Truman administration wanted to side with India, but India turned us down, and so he went to Pakistan instead of India wanted to go with non-aligned movement. Yeah. So it's like getting turned down by the pretty girl at the prom and then going on a date with someone else. Instead, so Pakistan's always had a complex now what the United States interest is we've been increasingly ever since the Bush administration, but under Obama as well cultivating. India we have much more in common with India Pakistan, of course, has supported the Taliban. We want to we want to tamper down Pakistan's extreme support for terrorism at the same time. We don't want them to become a failed state because their nuclear power. We want them to talk them back from the brink. But we don't want to throw India under the bus by giving concessions to. Terrorist sponsor, so I mean, given that it is complicated. If you're advising secretary of state Pompeii on this escalating situation. What's the advice? How to how do we or is there a place for us to intervene? You know, I'm not intervene, but to help resolve this. I'm not big on moral equivalents when the choice is between a terrorist sponsor, and the world's largest mock rec-, I say we have to come down solidly on India side, and we have to ensure that India has an even greater qualitative military edge every time Pakistan, launches a terror attack into India, we've got to bolster India's capability and at the same time, you know, enough with this diplomatic mumbo jumbo Pakistan is responsible for killing American troops in Afghanistan, Pakistan, hid, Osama bin Laden, and it's time we call Pakistan. What it is a state sponsor of terror. All right. Well, there you go. That's diplomatic you my in his residence scholar at the.
