"County Anti Democratic Committee as the county chair. I'm in touch with the candidates or their staff when they come through through the will reach out to me it. Usually their staff and our county committee has hosted a number of the candidates for what we call meet and greets which is basically the candidate speaks for maybe twenty minutes and then the answer questions and we might have some refreshment. It's pretty informal. So I'm very interested in that and I try to arrange meet and greets or similar things should democrats can meet the candidates antedates and it's a way for hopefully people to get involved themselves to become active Democrats and so I'm always hoping that when people come out to see a candidate that they'll get active if they aren't already active or they'll stay active until a lot of my work just regular workers. County chair is to build up the committees in the different town. Drake also got involved in politics at a young age and he's been involved ever since well. I've been interested in politics. Ever since nineteen sixty eight when I was a junior in high school in northern New Jersey and I went to a anti-vietnam a Vietnam War rally in New York City in April one thousand nine hundred sixty eight and I've been active in politics one sort or another for all those years. I was active in my union. The American Federation government employees for many years when I worked at the Department of Labor. And so I'd I always voted democratic but I was not involved with the Party so joan and I moved to Portsmouth in September of two thousand and six and we got involved very quickly with the campaign of Carol Shea Porter who is running for Congress for the first time and so I got involved in her campaign and she won. That was a huge Democratic victory in two thousand deal. Yes and especially in New Hampshire. We want an amazing victory so I got involved in two thousand and seven with the Rockingham County Democratic Committee because we knew knew the chair person lenore patent and started attending meetings over the years. I became the treasurer and vice chair. And then in two thousand twelve I was elect the chair and ever since and I enjoyed. Drake doesn't personally make endorsements in primaries. which other county in town chairs do you but you can imagine? He's someone campaigns would bike on their side. Well I'm sure that they would like my endorsement but I made a decision several years ago that I would not make any endorsements in any Democratic primary. I think I can be a more effective chair if neutral because if you I've noticed ask that if you endorse somebody then people that are supporting other candidates may be a little suspicious. They're like are you rigging things to help you again. I know so I decided. Hey I'm not going to endorse anybody. I'm just I'm all about building the Party and getting ready for the general election so I'll just be supportive of all the candidates and you know whoever wins wins. And you know what makes it easier to get along with everybody. I'm not I'm not opposing anybody so elaine are these endorsements from town in county tourism important. Oh absolutely in general in elections for president endorsements. Don't matter very much. You know when you're talking about the November election but because New Hampshire is a retail politics state endorsements from people people who are active in their communities and have a lot of friends and neighbors in their communities are critically important so of course in the first thing that presidential candidates do is they look up the county chairs and the town chairs they look up precinct activists. They look up people who've worked in other presidential Campaigns and then try to convince them to get on their side. Maybe the most famous person. Whoever did this was current? Senator Jeanne Jeannie Shaheen Jeanne Shaheen worked for Senator Gary Hart Way back in nineteen eighty four when he won a surprise victory. Victory over vice president. Walter Mondale in New Hampshire and having Genie Shaheen on Gary Hart side was something that those of us who were in the Mondale campaign. I was in the Mondale campaign. Then were very jealous of and for good reason. GD She he knew how to introduce Gary Hart to New Hampshire and even though he didn't win the nomination of the Democratic Party in nineteen eighty four. He sure did give. Walter Mondale run for his money. Now we heard from Larry Drake and Ray Buckley about the deep passion for retail politics in New Hampshire which Buckley has been involved in since he was a teenager. I imagine that the same kind of commitment exists on the Republican side right. Oh absolutely the Republican voters the Republican activists in New Hampshire. There are every bit as committed to aid their political party. And be to keep New Hampshire first in the nation. This is one of the reasons. Is that New Hampshire has had so much success remaining first in the nation is that it is a bipartisan obsession. Democrats and Republicans like their first in the nation status also. They like the chance to meet Republican candidates and future presidents. There are lots of people like Ray Buckley. Luckily who remember meeting Jimmy Carter and there are Republicans who can remember meeting Ronald Reagan and George Bush. Both George Bush's as they came through New Hampshire. Sure so new. Hampshire is.

"Disseminating information with actionable intelligence. America. Here again, this is the Buck Sexton show. Former CIA analysts remember the NYPD sex now. You're listening to the Buck Sexton show, I'm hard hill in for buck. The phone lines are open so give us a call at eight four four nine hundred to eight to five that's eight four four nine hundred buck with the media hyperventilating about Russian collusion, and the government shutdown one thing we don't hear much about any more from the media is the VA department that has let our veterans down at every turn for decades. And which is arguably the single best example of socialized medicine, just not working joining me to discuss that and many more as an expert on this Christie, William he's also a good friend of mine, and he's the vice president of next veterans as well. As an Iraq war veteran. Chris first of all, thanks for your service and thanks for joining us. Great to be with you Harlan. So how many understanding what's happening right now? Is this still an issue the the wait times and all of that? The VA still is having a lot of problems. President Trump has made some major changes early, and it's been very effective at giving the authorities. It needs to lessen the healthcare wait times. Give veterans a choice between local VA hospitals in private care providers. If they can see a doctor sooner cutting down on the union bureaucracy getting things right, and that's been encouraging. But I still think a major issue with the VA are Obama holdovers and union bosses that are still dragging their feet delaying the president's agenda and still kind of just being bureaucratic. So that's going to continue, and that's been an issue in many respects. But I do think the president is moving in a good direction. And the VA is trying to reform you're telling me that I mean, well, this actually makes sense because we hear this from every different department across the federal government. They're Obama holdovers. That are in there. They're undermining the mission of this administration to make some meaningful reforms and changes. And you're saying the VA's, no different. It's exact same thing. There. It's exactly the same. The VA is also the second largest federal agency next to looking at three hundred thousand employees, it's very very large bureaucracy. And there's a lot of high ranking federal employees that frankly, just want to kind of keep things the same and there's really no incentive to improve and change processes. So there's a lot of finger pointing into veteran ends up being sort of second to the bureaucratic. It's the VA before veteran. I think the Trump administration has tried to put the veteran in front of the VA. And I think putting the veteran in front of the VA is the real trick to the reform. I think the president's working on that now. So I mean, what are the biggest pain points for the VA like if you had to identify the three biggest problems? What are they? Number one is continued healthcare wait times for veterans in trying to get the bureaucracy to allow veterans to have these private consults when the line is too long. So they can see a doctor number two is staffing because of long pure critic rules to actually fill Dr positions, which I think if you get more bureaucrats out behind desks and more doctors in their will in the third one is twofold one the canine testing program is a big distraction. It's a total disaster. It needs to be shut down. What is that canine testing program? What is that? So the testing program is essentially these these painful past the VA was doing in in science labs with federal tax money to allegedly create new discoveries for for veterans health around cardiac and other things, but they never got any results out of it. There were a lot of scandals around it in congress and the president shut it down. But there's one waiver is already in the law that allows the VA secretary to continue the programs. It's a it's a. About a million dollars a year. And the current secretary is allowing the experiments to go forward. And I think he's really making a mistake. I think he's listening to some very bad advisers, and I think eventually it's going to be shut down. But it's just another example via bureaucrats and probably doctors getting paid a lot of money and lobbyists in the space that just want to continue bad disaster programs because it's it's a benefit to them. So why I think the president's drain the swamp. VA the swamp has been there for so long. There's so many bureaucratic rules that it's gonna take a little bit longer. But this is one program the canine testing program that we need to shut down in twenty nineteen. And I think we're going to get it done. So what about making available more private access to care for veterans? Do you think that's an important option across the board or in specific areas that were taking I do I certainly think in we have the stats. I mean certain as do better than others. We call these students veteran integrated service networks basically hospital systems for the ones that struggle a veteran needs. The option to say I can use the VA or I'm going to go to a private care provider and the program exists, but there's been a lot of problems around the rules of when you're allowed to use it when you're logic console. And so and there's been a lot of division in the veteran community about private privatization, but it's not privatization. It's choice. It's limited private care. When VA still is the overall healthcare provider, it should work. It is working for the president's got this. Right. Most of congress has got this. Right. But again, when you're dealing with the bureaucracy that big you're dealing with regulations and rules and federal money. There's still a lot of delays. But I think that's been a key issue. It's been improving, and I think that the VA committees have got to work together. You know, Democrats are going to have the house committee Republicans have the Senate committee. You've gotta work together and have hearings to get the healthcare choices. Right. So we can lessen those wait times improve healthcare and also prevent veterans from from having mental health issues. Well, let's let's such on the mental health issue right now. Because arguably, I mean, that's one of the most visible. Issues or most vocally issues. We're starting to hear more and more about what is the VA doing to treat that as an issue of priority. Programs in place where what are they doing? That's a great question. They're providing a lot of funding. But the problem is the VA spent so much money on ads and marketing and all these PR people and the PR people really just run around and talk about things that half. The time aren't even Germain. The other challenge is most of the veterans that take their life. Sadly, they're gonna roll VA. These are veterans that are enrolled in the system we've got about twenty two million veterans only ninety million enrolled at VA and around four million regularly use it some veterans don't like to use it others do. But the point is a lot of those veterans aren't even in the VA. So why isn't the brand strong enough to attract veterans is a whole nother issue? So veterans issues, I'm glad you're you're you're covering it. It's so great to be on because you know, Harland veterans issues just don't get the attention. They need most of the time. You know in our busy lives. I mean Veterans Day Memorial Day. We we take that moment. But the day to day. There's a lot of issues that need to be fixed. I think the president's focused on it. I think Democrats usually try to get it. Right. But I think they they need to learn that the union American federation government employees are a bunch of hacks. I mean, they're they're president non-fat. He's anti reform. He put bureaucrats over the interest of veterans that died on secret waiting lists in Phoenix. And we really need to make sure we keep slamming that union. And frankly, I don't even know why via gets to have it union. I mean, I so you're telling me the head of the union for the VA isn't even a veteran. No. So that the union af AFG it's a big union that includes VA, but also other federal agencies at large they have a they have a larger membership. But not all not albeit employees are members. But the head of that is not that I believe he was a VA nurse at one point. But again, that's what we're dealing with. We're dealing with people that don't understand how it is secretary Wilkie does get it. He is his is he comes from a military family. But again, the union has been an issue the union has af GE has been a big big issue. And they've been big union people in President Obama's said he was going to reform the union, and then he backed off back in the last session. I to two sessions of congress ago HR nineteen ninety four he issued a veto threat. So luckily, President Trump got that done in the first year, it's called the accountability. Act allows the employee to be fired without you know, waiting years and years and appeals. If if you if you mistreat our veterans, you should be fired and maybe. Even have the door hit you on the way out. And that's the way Trump administration is taking on the unions now. Well, Chris this has been great. I'm glad we could shine a light on this. No, this is something you spend every day working on. And and I really appreciate it. And appreciate your service where where can people find more about you? They can find me at my name and Twitter it C H R. I S N E W E M like Mike nine Wayne, Chris lame. I vice president of next veterans and work out.

I know one of the things I'm going to try hard to do is to stay healthy myself and keep life in balance and harmony not easy to do. And jennifer. Is the best example of how to keep life in balance? And harmony actually that I've written. Changes today. So exciting is that it's a whole new life. Can't you tell? Well, I'd like to tell you. Yes. Definitely happy new year and happy healthy new year. And hopefully, we all have our have our word for the year. I can't remember what mine is I came up with it on. Remember last year, it was purged which I got at the end of the year, but come up with it again. But President Trump has a word, and it's called shutdown. We're still in it. And he is now invited congressional leaders from both parties today to a briefing at the White House about the border wall, which would be the first meeting between Trump and the Democrats since the start of the partial government shutdown now, this is the second week of the shutdown and House Democrats are getting ready to take control they'll be the majority party. I think starting tomorrow they plan to pass a short term funding Bill which would aim at reopening the government, but that doesn't have any funding for border security or for the wall that'll happen tomorrow. Then they would pass that short-term spending Bill over to the Senate to put the pressure on Mitch McConnell, and the Republicans there who seemed to be solidly standing with the president saying, Nope. If you don't address the immigration problem, we are not going to be able to sign this thing. So again, it's a ping pong ball back and forth between Democrats Republicans and Trump to see who's taking ownership of the set down, which I think a lot of people didn't notice because they were all on holiday vacation. But now people are going to get there. Starting to notice because everybody's waking up again after the holidays slumber and somebody something's going to have to happen. So Trump's inviting everybody over to either have a showdown with them or play. Let's make a deal. We'll see what happens according to what Trump's Twitter page. He's looking to quote make a deal with Nancy Pelosi. So we'll see meanwhile, as the government shutdown continues, the national parks have got trash everywhere. Which is what you'd expect the thing? The seems the most important thing in the park. So the trash collectors the shutdowns that had happened before the parks shutdown, but this time most of them are open member last week. And there were pictures of people running into the white sands national park just jumping over the fence. Isn't that happened a lot? So apparently, I went on the air. And it wasn't just me who said go. Let's go have a good time. It's not your fault. These people you're on vacation, you're in these places. So just go. If you have to jump over the fence, go jump over the fence after all the land doesn't belong. We have all this. The government owns this. The government owns that where the government so screw the government. If they can't get their act together you want to go visit the white sand. Whatever park it is go visit visited, but you know, what the other side of it is have some respect. And it ought not to be that we have this is the other side of the coin the things that stayed open or they gave up and they decided to leave the gates open. The the shortage of garbage collectors apparently has caused some issues, and it doesn't look good for Americans to be this dirty. The trash the human waste come on. What's the matter with you? Okay. So we have a problem. Do you have to have somebody wait on you all the time? You can't hold onto your trash and put it in some places top of the first gas station, or what's the matter with you. I imagine they have trash cans, and there are porta-pottys and people are probably using those things. Yeah. Right. Right. But I see what Doug saying take your trash back in your own car when you sat overflowing. Pillow commonsense. Yeah. It is. Thank you. That's exactly what it is. So speaking of common sense, some of the workers say they're going to sue the government today because of the shutdown and this an interesting lawsuit. It claims the government is breaking the law by requiring employees to work without pay and it probably will get tossed because although who knows what judge a look at it. They aren't not getting paid. They're not going to get paid on time. Nobody's working for nothing. And that's the sort of insidious side of these things some of these workers, and this is what is bothersome to me really bothers really troublesome. Where you've got people who are working, and they will get paid later. There were those who are not working they'll also get paid later. So the American federation government employees says they're going to file a lawsuit on behalf of the designated essential, federal employees who aren't getting paid. There are needed to keep certain parts of the country running correctional officers. Pretty good example, the TSA people. Oh my God. Here's my this is perfect for this. Really you hit. My this is a trigger and a half with me. Doc. Yeah. I'm on my way to LA on. When did I go to LA Sunday morning? So going through the about seven o'clock, whatever it is six thirty. And granted, you know, people the it was bombed. Oh my God. There was so many people were going back on Sunday morning. So in the line, and I go through the thing and the and the beep goes off when I go through, and I know the shoes those wearing have metal in them. So I took them off my belt has mental. So I take off my pinhead metal took that off watch has metal in the thing said through the trae they couldn't find anything. So the TSA lady says, let me see your wallet. And I looked at her. And I said, what do you mean? You wanna see my wallet? Yeah. I wanna see what's in your wallet. And I bit my tongue. She took everything out of my wallet. Everything. What is that two out? Every we'll that's what I'm this is something I'm gonna look into wasn't your wallet post to be in the little the little dish. While you don't have to if you're a pre check you don't have to do that. Okay. So the reason they did it to meet you because I had too many coins. That's what they told me that. I that was she said she looked at me. And should you have to? She said she had this most arrogant look at her. I wanted I was infuriated. But the last time I had to do with him. I was tied on into it. Yeah. So what what did what did she think was in? I mean, men don't carry wallet said, you have a lot of things that why do you have so much in your wallet? I looked at her. I didn't answer her. But she could tell by looking at my face. It was none of her. God blessed business. And it wasn't. And it isn't it really infuriated me. And if you really wanna make it to do out of it with them, you can say. You you can't look at this is my personal stuff in there. You tell me what you're looking for. And I'll give you. Well, we don't know what we're looking for. Yeah. Right. Okay. And they're not gonna let you get on the plane. Yeah. Well, but you see that's the way we have too much government too much authority rested in the hands of morons. And that's really what my objection have been to that all along. Well at the end inappropriate. What was it? That was setting off the doesn't know she didn't know. Just let you go through. I put all this stuff back in my wallet. And I took my wallet. And I walked away. That was it. So I just I can't imagine that this is that that's legit at any rate. It just man. Had a drink when I got on the plane or at seven o'clock in the morning. All right. Let's see sports couple of sports items here, the Women's Tennis Association serving up new guidelines to help mothers returning to the sport after they have a baby they say it's going to introduce a new special ranking rule for this new season this year under that rule. Ladies a player will have to. Let's see over the first three years after the birth of the child us special ranking in order to get into tournaments. What do we think about this make it easier? It's barely aimed at main easier for new mothers who were playing at the elite level. I can't believe that. This is new this happened. I think right before the end of the year two thousand eighteen I can't believe that. There's obviously been a need for it all along, but when Serena Williams gave birth and then she the first horn, and then she played in. She was completely unseeded. Yeah. So she had to fight her way. Literally from the very bottom. So men never have to do this. If they have an injury. And they leave their ranking spot. Yeah. Yeah. It's so bizarre sexual and. Yeah, but it's like we should change that for men. I think you should have to fight it back after an injury. If you lose your standing that just seems fair to me, I think professional wrestling. Right. There's a good comparative for in wrestling, if a woman has a baby. Take time off and come back. He's an example of that. Bree Bela who she. Dinner. What are the Bella twins? Yeah. We got it. What else? I don't wanna I want to go to the golf. We never talked much about golf. Thank new app. I know right. What is there to say? As in new ABC, Jennifer. To fix your golf swing? This device became popular over Christmas for golfers. It measures the velocity.
