"I think it seemed like a logical it is anything else and you've already sort of touched on this a little bit. But what is it that makes you decide to smoke or vapor eat in a certain point you've mentioned already, you know having like a stressful day are there other things that factor into that at this point? I think it's more about the symptoms and recognizing what I thought I need cuz I do I work on computers all day. So I you know have neck and shoulder issues all the time with muscles and depending on what I have in the house in terms of strain. I feel like I'll kind of take that into account and be like, oh, well this particular strain that I have right now. I know it's just killer for muscle aches or whatever and I just I so there are days where I'll be like, I can't wait to sign off work because I want to have some of this because I know that it will make me feel really awesome like it did last night and like I've been hurting all day and I really want that reliefs. So it kind of goes depending on what's happening in the day and like what symptom wise I'm having going on if that makes sense. Yeah, and and you're in a unique position because you obviously have had have a job. Had and currently have the the medical issue that this helps with so how I guess how did that help you? I don't know how much detail you wash you go into but but how did cannabis help you? And what were the symptoms that you were dealing with that it helped with? Oh my God. Terrible question wage that stupid. I totally understand what you're saying though. I when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. One of the first things I said was what is the hospital stance on medical marijuana? Like that was kind of my first questions right off the bat and luckily my oncologist was down with it. And oh my God, I mean the nausea was a big one thought they were days. I literally wouldn't have eaten as a cancer patient had I not had medical marijuana. So that was huge but that was because of the chemotherapy. Yeah. Yeah, Andrew. Action really but then I had a port installed and plus, you know that like the side that is affected by every bite treatment you tend to be kind of favor that side of your body. So like muscle wise I was just all out of whack and I knew I did, you know, I was given some anti-nausea medication but like some of the side effects of that weren't super great like some of the side effects were like constipation or headaches or what and I'm like, well, I don't really want any of that if the whole point like take this medicine to help me to eat normal and have my my system functioning normal. Plus I kind of there were so many unknowns happening already that I just wanted something that I knew would give me relief that I was at least expecting or at least symptoms that I was expecting, you know, but also word off some of that other stuff and I kind of thought Ready knew what we'd would do. So I was really comfortable in that regard using that as my relief mechanism and I was not aware that the medical stuff has come a long way from just you know, your buddy who can get you something in high school..

"Time. Because I'm kind of aggressive person. You know so. Even though I'm all I'll be seventy next year my wife said will you please calm down. She's been saying it for forty three years now. It hasn't happened. The actual name of this Cassandra is Andrew Natsios. His moment of prophecy involved a life and death choice that affected hundreds of thousands of people. Before we get to that we need to you understand the formative moments in Andrew's career in many ways. He was an unlikely hero in the nineteen eighties. He sold in the Massachusetts House of Representatives at the Republican National Committee meeting in Nineteen Eighty Eight. He didn't exactly get the star. Treatment chair recognizes nested acids from Maryland Massachusetts Natsios from Massachusetts Printing here. Sorry before he he got to his Cassandra moment. Andrew was brought in to salvage a Boondoggle of transportation project in Boston the big it redirected a massive highway into a tunnel under the city. Andrew came in several years into the project. At that point it was a mess with huge cost overruns. Andrew had two things going thing for him he had experienced leading big institutions and he had his temperament. I'm sort of a type A.. Personality very kind of aggressive and a dominant figure in any institution that I run so I could get the institution to do what I wanted to do what I thought was right to do. Do he was in fact able to figure out why the project's finances were out of whack. But his efforts were always appreciate it. It was the most difficult year of my career. Actually I actually felt safer in Sudan and Iraq and Afghanistan that I did in Boston. One person threatened to break my neck while I was investigating the big dig and I always threatened once. I took over to someone to threaten to kill me then to Angela. Andrew had spent much of his career overseas his experience leading several national and international organizations coffee of President George W Bush who appointed him to lead. UCSD that's the agency responsible for America's involvement in international development. It's here that Andrew had his prophetic moment in two thousand and three Andrew briefed top members of the Bush administration about escalating violence in Sudan by that point marauders charging into villagers setting them on fire sending civilians fleeing they were known as a Jesuit. The quickly took over a vast industy reach in on on the edge of the Sahara Darfour Andrews warnings and advice had an impact the US applied billions of dollars in aid to sedan over the next several years inspired. The economic difficulties are aid will continue to flow President Bush all to put political pressure on Sudanese leaders. Some of his measures were behind the scenes others more public. The news media began to take note today. President Bush announced tough new economic sanctions against Sudan on over the continued persecution of minority population in Darfur his Andrew's actions at UCSD have become a case study on effective warnings. That's according to Christoph Mayer professor F- European and International Politics at King's College London. Christoph has spent many years studying how warnings are made and which Schwann's managed to break through the noise. He says there are several reasons. Andrew Natsios managed to persuade the Bush administration to act one is he was able to to show how a further escalation With many hundreds of thousands of people that was was highly likely and he was able to kind of put put that into a presentation chart the escalation of the conflict into the future. Andrew commissioned a study that predicted how many people would die if the. US didn't intervene gene. He also got us spy-satellites to take pictures of Darfur to photograph the ground every day to show the villages that were being burned from day. Hey today and these photographs were so clear that the photographs were unimpeachable. In terms of their quality quality in terms of what the atrocities were in the they earn thirty villages they displaced two million people so Andrew laid out clear evidence since there was something else that helped make the case to the president he was an insider. was I taken seriously. Yes because I had a relationship with the president's that's the president's plural he camping twice George h.w Bush and he had worked on the George W Bush campaign two thousand. He was not seen as one of these. As you know do-gooders now one of these kind of a liberal NGO types. Yes you had a history in the NGO sector. He was an expert but he was also kind conservative. Pedigree he had experienced in the armed forces he was seen as someone who understood that the president's time was precious and understood the preferences and and he was seen as kind of pot of us and therefore if someone who was seen as a kind of someone who's GonNa almost national security type if someone like that would warn on about the consequences of that kind of conflict in that country he he would be taking so much more seriously than someone who is seen in a very different front light. Besides his political credentials Andrew was also an insider in another way. He was a Christian who spent years leading an international Christian NGO NGO. He knew that. George W Bush's identity as a Christian was important to him and important to his reelection chances in two thousand four. Christoph Mayor says is Andrew laid out the political consequences of inaction and are four. Where many of the civilians being attacked Christian he was able to show how that kind kind of esscalation would be politically relevant to the Bush administration at the time how it would impact on the reelection chances in how that would connect to Christian constituency in the US which of course one of the supporting constituencies of the Bush administration because it was also Christians who were in incident? We're watching affected by this violence. Andrew implicitly understood a widespread psychological bias. We all tend to look more sympathetically at suffering when the people who are suffering. Have something in common with us. There's another part to this. Andrew was successful because he did not President Bush to make a major u-turn from the very beginning of his administration. The president had been interested in what was happening in Sudan. The first presidential review that the president ordered was on Sudan policy now what came to be known as a genocide dot four did claim hundreds of thousands of lives so it may be hard to see Andrews warning as effective Steph and yet if Andrew had not acted Kristof says he believes things would have turned out worse. I think the Bush Administration did acted didn't act very early but it did act politically put pressure on the conflict parties and they did act I think as soon as could be probably expected on the humanitarian front therefore saving lives through military action. I couldn't have done that alone. President Bush did it. I have to say I said in my book. I think he he ended. What could have been another Rwanda genocide so Andrew Natsios? We have a plain spoken leader breath. He had the insider credentials to get others on board. And he didn't ask policymakers to do something that was greatly at odds with what they wanted to do anyway. In contrast that with doomed prophet we heard about earlier. CASSANDRA spoken riddles. Prophetic riddles meritas nonetheless. Sir Let them off endlessly gorging on this plan Reza Shriek over the sacrifice on which stones will fall there. Third Unlike Andrew. Natsios Cassandra wasn't an insider as emily. Wilson says even if somebody is speaking the truth if it's coming from the mouth of an unauthorized person for somebody has dismissed US other than that can make it possible to dismiss even a very clear autoclave. Scary Truth and Cassandra was too far ahead of everyone else. When she and the other children women are being captured as slaves? She doesn't explain that she's he's happy because she knows the Greeks are going to be killed. She conceded to the future but she doesn't take others along with her. There are lessons since here for our own time. Christoph says many modern CASSANDRA's forget it's hard for most people to look far into the future leaders especially are often pulled in different directions directions paying attention to one risk means fewer resources for others. If you come in with a vague warning about a distant problem you're going to get sideline sideline Samantha. Power wrote in a problem from Hell about the response from one administrator to the warning that that was given that unless his telephones where ringing saying he couldn't do anything so even if he believed that what she was saying is right. He was so constrained by the lack of incensio puppet clamoring In the beltway the support for acting that you couldn't do something. Cassandra also asked the people. She was trying to warn to stretch too. Far Outside at their comfort zone remember him. Nestor as giving agamemnon lovely bath before she hacks him to death. CASSANDRA saw it coming. Look at this look. Keep away from the Heifer but agamemnon wasn't a head space where he could hear the warning Kristof says this happens depends with real life. CASSANDRA's and real life policymakers. If leaders have to reject some foundational believed to act on a warning. There's a strong chance that they will simply clearly ignore the warning. Quite often What makes warnings so difficult to believe it is i? Is there political inconvenience In fact this is exactly what happened in the case of the Challenger space shuttle disaster. A scientific inquiry found that several engineers had had it concerns about the safety of what came to be known as the O. Rings on the shuttle the tool NASA managers to delay the launch by the managers overrule the engineers his and the challenge. I took off his plan here looking very carefully. Obviously a major malfunction. We've painted a picture of warnings. That is at odds with the way most of us think about that in the conventional telling someone raises an alarm and everyone John Jumps up and does something about it. In reality warnings are likely to be heard when they're made by someone who's part of our in group when the warning is so imminent the newly everyone can see the danger and where the solution doesn't require a radical shift in existing strategy unsurprisingly. This means that many warnings will go unheeded and many CASSANDRA's will be dismissed in Greek. Mythology CASSANDRA was cursed to be ignored. Ignored there really wasn't anything she could do to get people to believe her for the CASSANDRA's in our own midst the curse is even more terrible facets facets of the human mind make it difficult for us to pay attention to warnings and difficult to act on them until it's nearly.

it's great and everything's cheap so the conversion rate is like you know three local dollars per one dollar so your money goes along I mean you can literally get a whole meal for you know three or four but Fox here so it's pretty awesome pretty awesome that's a loss aloe so before we get started here just reminded guys Legacy Dad's you weekly does the biblical manhood it's podcast is for men husbands and fathers in all stages of life were we promote and advocate proven biblical principles for leaving a lasting legacy the and hey fair lady listen shot ladies to we we love club and you guys listening in as well even though he say's for guys men you guys are always oh come on you know that so switching gears we're going to kind of go back and we're GONNA we're GonNa talk about we did Previously podcast on twelve ordinary man we we talked about p eater so tonight we're going to go a little bit we're GonNa talk to the next disciple we're GonNa talk about Andrew so Donte I'll kind of start to soften we can jump back and forth if you want this thing so Peter Peter's brother was Andrew actually and and an and he's like probably one of the least known of the four decide bulls in what they call the main groups of these these there's there's four disciples that were had a kind of a greater intimacy or closeness with Christ and and who is in that category but he is one of the least known of this and but we often we know that he had a particularly close relationship with Christ because he was so often the means by which other people got introduced to Jesus so he was he was a born evangelist was always introducing people due to Jesus and it's widely believed that Andrew was actually the very first one called by Jesus at the time Andrew was a companion the friend of John Brother of James the son of Zebedee and and John were disciples of John the Baptist and their first encounter with Jesus was that day after Jesus Baptism and they were standing next John the Baptist when Jesus approached and John said behold the lamb of God that comes from John One thirty five thirty six and the men immediately left John side and began to fall Geez is that's I thirty seven and soon after we see Andrew sought out his brother Simon Simon Peter which was probably Simon Peter as we know of scripture was probably the dominant brother was more vocal more You know definitely the type a brother out of that but when we look at this Andrew ultimately was one that brought Peter to Christ as we saw versus in John John One versus forty one and forty two what have we got next onto what he you know I mean if you think about it Peter and Andrew probably lifelong companions with other sets of fishermen they were pretty tightknit group you would imagine you know for them shared common spiritual interest in even before they met Christ it looks like they took a break from fishing you know and we can see how close that was with their dads and probably uncles and all that but visited the wilderness they were with John the Baptist where he was preaching and became the Zyppah of John you know in some of this aspect like you know as we're reading about Andrew and that's when they first met Christ in you know I love the idea that you know and who is one that sought out Simon Peter and you know and set is sufficient upon this rock I'm going to build you know and just the relationship there in the the quietness the gentle leadership the manhood that you just get an his character it just it when we get into stuff like this it just fascinates me more that you you you just look at some of these disciples and it's just like I just wish we had more reference to Andrew in in the Gospels the New Testament because it's seems like somebody that you know I mean if you look around you know a urine leaders meeting your in you know a visionary meeting urine boardroom you're in military meeting strategy meeting Gua- The guy that a lot of people when he speaks you know he's not deviating much you know he doesn't speak all the time he's not trying to micromanage but he's at ever so stoic just sound person that you you have a lot of confidence in that does that really start to describe who we're talking about here lance yeah and I think like you said it's we we see that you know Andy's really only mentioned about nine times in the in the gospels and and a lot of it is because of of his brother Simon Peter in so he's kind of you know you know he's mentioned because okays with some impeded the time but again I think like you said Dante you see this guy every church has sky he's that guy that just quiet background is doing God's work is working hard but he doesn't boast he doesn't say a lot he's just quietly you know doing God's work and I think it's rate this is a great reflection I think if your guy out there and you're one of those guys like Hey I'm not a public speaker I don't get up and make speeches I don't do a lot of talking but I really have a heart for God I mean Andrew Andrew's you guy and I I would identify this guy in we have a saying in the military of of in special forces they see into the Wyatt professional you do what you need to do but you don't boast about it you don't call attention to yourself and I think that's exactly what we see here and you and the other thing that's really cool about this is throughout all the disciples and and throughout all the Bible we see the guide and specifically with the Disciples Jesus he saw the raw material and these men and he saw all these men come from different backgrounds different experiences they weren't the polished legislators of the day but it Jesus ultimately used them and train them for roles that they would play in the early church and each one of these men even though they had the personalities backgrounds and different traits spiritual gifts were an integral part of spreading the Gospel around the world and think you know for this reason the they're all mentioned as the foundation of the Church with Jesus Christ being the cornerstone of the Church we see that Fijian's two twenty but andrew was is really that guy that you know hey I don't have to bring a lot of attention to myself I'm not going to be in the spotlight but I'm getting things done and I know autism I know who my master is does any sense yeah and you can see the quiet relationship to him you know we get on that a little bit later in the podcast as far as you know he's bringing Jesus and in the back channels and you know really I mean I love Andrew because it's like when you do read about them when you do see the actions you know he the one that's bringing him to the master he's the one that's bringing them to the Savior Messiah Jesus Christ and you know it isn't look at me it isn't you know look at Andrew all over it just humble servant you know the servant leader and I love the idea you know Jesus when he's sharing with disciples you know when they're when two other brothers are you know who wants to I can we sit on your left hand and right hand you know he said if you WANNA be first you've got to be last and and Andrews like the Epitome of that example and you know I think as we look further into almost everything scripture tells us about Andrew shows e and the right heart for effective ministry in the background you know he did not seek the center of attention as you said Lance he did not seem to be you know to to resent those who labored in the spotlight he was obviously an evidently content to do what he could with the gifts in the calling that got give him an allowed others to do the same unlikely we read about Barnabus I I would imagine Andrew without even knowing more was probably the encourage irs well just you know that steady rock that person that you knew when you want it sounded by that he was probably in the first second third on that speed dial yeah absolutely no and the other thing we see two is in that's in the evidence of it in in scripture or in a religious history or anything like that but there's really no evidence that Andrew was you know angry that Peter was in the spotlight more Peter was chosen to be the rock and all those things you know and sometimes you see that in family dynamics where one brother is favored over another you know there's resentment and there's bitterness than it can lead to infighting in family we don't see that by at least the Gospel accounts we have and what he history we do have on Andrew we see that he was fine he said you know what hey I understand my brother is called to a different style ministry than I was and I think that's important for us lender member that hey there's going to be people that are called up for leadership there's going to be people are going to call to be more vocal than others at doesn't mean that you have your wall is not equally important if you're one of those quiet guys you're one of the guys that works behind the scenes or you're not out in the spotlight it doesn't mean you're that God is not using you away and and some ways you'd see that you know you may have more of an impact at an individual level of people then you know the ones that are the spotlight or the ones that are always talking and I think you know just looking at the example of Andrew here I'm hoping that this is an encouragement to some of those guys because I definitely fall into this category at times myself and I feel like you know hey andrews the perfect example that quite guy that just was obedient to God was submissive to God let God use him and and let you know used what spiritual gifts he had and was not the jealous or resentful of the spiritual gifts that he didn't have does that make sense Dante like you said you know when he when he introduced Peter to Jesus mean knowing full well who peter is I mean probably all through boyhood growing up with him he had no your reservation I mean he just fully did come meet the Messiah and you know I love that because I mean whenever Andrew did speak scripture from what we see he always said the right thing thing not the wrong thing and it reacts apart from other disciples he does what is right and you know scripture never `attaches anything whatever condescending or dishonor when it speaks of Andrew's actions when it mentioned him by name and I mean like I don't know about you lands but I I don't need to be in you know the the New York Spotlight or a Hollywood spotlights but you know this is something that I would drive for hey if the the head rabbi the Asya the chief of chief King of Kings Lord of Lords looks at me in a positive light and the fact that my light always pointed to him I I tell you that I don't I can't think of a higher way to end my life than have that being spoken while of like that yet even think about that so so then Andrew his aim actually means Manley that's kind of what his name Anton I'm an if we look at the example of Andrew even though he didn't speak a lot even though we don't have a record of him saying he's he was still bold he was still decisive he was deliberate with what he did nothing about him was feeble or Wimpish or passive I mean he because he didn't speak a lot doesn't mean that he wasn't this you know bold and decisive guy because he certainly was and he has a drip is really driven by this heart passion for the Truth and willing to subject himself to hardship and I think you know he was driven by passion for you who's a very devout man and he was very effective leader even though he was seldom in the limelight he certainly never sought out to be in the limelight and I think what we see over and over again and where you know Peter was sometimes a hothead and and like you said Dante you know Peter was the one that you know set a lot of stupid things and we have things record over in scripture and Peters one that denied Christ three times and sometimes see he spoke when he should have probably kept his mouth shut in little bit more but we see the opposite of that Andrew Were Andrews a guy that had don't need to say a lot I'm going to think about it when I act I'm going to act in the way that Scott honoring I'm going to do the right thing and the one thing I love what Andrew like you you mentioned to Dante was that he recognized the.

"So I said. Now we're back Andrew producer Andrew what else you got. We got Brandon from Austin, who says we haven't talked about illegal immigration, but what about legal immigration, the population in my state of Texas has increased dramatically in the last few decades, both from in-country immigration from states like California, as well as from Latin America, should we be worried about population size and how much legal immigration is enough. So great question like this is actually kind of becoming more, hotly debated. So I am so against illegal immigration. I don't even call it illegal immigration. I think that immigration means that you obey the law, you wait in line, and you come to this country correctly, illegals, are line, cutting and border jumping, but this is the disagreement, I have with a lot of some people on the right. And this is kind of a growing contingent on the right and producer Andrew action, I'd be in this category, who knows which is there's this organization. I have respect for a lot of what they talk about. I'm not trying to diminish them or belittle them. I just disagree with him. And disagreements fine called numbers USA, and they run these. Ads saying, we want to restrict the amount of legal immigrants in our country, as if as, if aspirational qualified intelligent people coming to America would be a net negative and there's, there's no evidence of that whatsoever. It's not like we have a lack of land, or lack of resources in this country are certain parts of the country that are probably overpopulated LA county thinking of one, there's contract that could be benefitted by five thousand new ambitious young ethical, immigrants small over the world. And so I'm actually the opinion that we should be the Kentucky basketball of immigrants. And what I mean those that don't understand the sports reference, they go in search out Kentucky basketball every year, the best basketball players in the country and the best talent, we should be no different. We should have the most talented ambitious people in the world coming to America. Now, we have specific type of visa, the five visa allows you to come in with resources, create jobs by property, maybe a hotel and listening it, permanent residency. This is a great part of immigration system. We should expand that, and that we should make it easier for people bring their money into America. Same should be said though for the gene of genius visa if you're coming to be educated in America, you should be able to stay in America to go to Stanford. If you go to jail, go to Harvard, while, would we educate the best and brightest of the world and export them back to the country that they came from export them back to eastern Europe or to Africa, rever, it, doesn't make any sense. We want them to stay here in America. I'll give you a couple of minutes. We do not have an overpopulation problem in this country. Certain parts of the country can probably be too densely populated. But right now, just so you know, Chicago Illinois Cook County lost fifty six thousand people over the last ten years. Why is Illinois losing its grip because a bad politics and bad policy? But if you've ten thousand immigrants that come maybe a little bit of money, a lot of ambition, great ideas, Illinois, it could be turned around. And so, I know that a lot of the policy, a lot of the, the concern about overpopulation comes from people in L A, and producer. Andrew lives in L A, and he's I understand. It's traffic is real the traffic and the the schools. And I get all that. But there's parts of this country that are losing population, actually, you know, for the first time since the census North Dakota and South Dakota increasing population and Cook County is decreasing population, ca county Chicago, I want you to think about this. Cook County Chicago, where is the headquarters of Boeing, the headquarters United Airlines the headquarters of AllState insurance. Lost fifty six thousand people over ten years. It's amazing with all the births and all the people still moving there that means that there's just a net migration out of Illinois, and I'm one of them, I'm getting out as quickly as I possibly can. So there are parts of this country that would be benefited from a Embiid and aspirated group of immigrants that are can obey the law. They'll create jobs. They'll be entrepreneurs, they'll go to school, and they'll be able to participate in a market economy right now, injure, we have more job openings than we have people to fill them in America right now. And that's because our economy's doing so. Well, I say we need more legal immigrants to come to this country. I'll give you some example. Elon Musk came as an illegal immigrant, a legal immigrant, Peter Thiel, these people came as legal immigrants to our country, and they obeyed the law, and we're better because of it, you know, it is interesting. You touched on something right, there, about people moving around in the country legally. Right. So people are leaving places like California. They're leaving place. Like Leno and they're going to places like Texas like they're going to Arizona, they states. Exactly. And there are parts of this country Texas could take another five million legal immigrants. When you go to these parts of Texas, there, they are starving for, for high quality talent that will come to their that will come to their state. There's a lot of people though, that are also worried about this right causing a lot of consternation about Texas, turning blue because of all the Californians coming, look, here's the one thing you should not craft immigration policy around, how you think people are gonna vote. That's that's, that's not a good. That's what the left does, and we accuse them of that. That's why they want you legals. Right. So you should that's might be a byproduct might be a logical conclusion of a lot of these things, but we should what's best for the country. Okay. So hundred thousand people that bring money and bring a high intellect and bring in Bishen with them is nothing but positive, and this is not a relatively new concept. Merit-based immigration is the standard of a lot of these countries at the left. Holds up as the greatest countries in the world, Switzerland. They will not let you into Switzerland unless you have no debt, certain net worth, and no crime whatsoever. Switzerland's always held up as this great social when, in fact, Switzerland is actually much more free market than America's Sweden. Norway Denmark, Sweden up into late Sweden is totally screw themselves up because unlimited immigration their country, and that's not what I'm advocating at all. But there are people right now there are young people. There are eighteen and nineteen and twenty year olds all across the world from India from Indonesia in Somalia. That would give anything for a chance to come to America, and they would obey our laws and our country would be better because of it, we need those people here. We should want those people there and that's here. And this is exactly why advocate for that type of immigration, you know, there's some interesting numbers from pew pew. They say that according to pew the US has more immigrants than any other country in the world, as I as of two thousand fifteen the United Nations estimates that forty six. Point six million people living in the United States were not born here. No by far. And so not only that we take in half the world's immigrants every single year. So we have five percent of the world's population, and we take in fifty percent of the world's immigrants. We so if you had if you had you five fingers, everyone listening to this holds up five fingers, your first two fingers, right? There are Indian Chinese. That's the world population. One out of five people in the world are Chinese the other one on a five or Indian so to five of the people in the world are either Indian or Chinese. It's amazing to think about isn't it? We like to think, as if America has a lot of people we really don't we've three hundred and forty million people. That's five percent of the entire world. Most of the world is Indian and Chinese most of the world's actually in Asia, if you count, India and China, both in Asia, plus, the Philippines, plus Indonesia, plus Korea, plus Japan, you're looking at about two point seven two point eight billion people just in Asia alone. Not to mention Iran in the Middle East. There's a billion people about in the Middle East. Altog-. And so America's five percent of the world's population yet. We take fifty percent half of the world immigrants every single year. Japan, does not even have an immigration policy. And actually, I could argue the lot of these countries that don't want to bring in the best and brightest aspirated on Ford, thinking, and productive people. They're worse off because of long term. I think Japan is actually slipped from the global competitiveness stage because of their lack of embrace of a legal immigrants program that allows people to start with nothing and create something with aspiration and Embiid can work ethic. And entrepreneurship America's in a unique challenge. When when we're talking about immigration as well, in the sense that we are big enough as a country from east coast to west coast, north south, to have internal immigration that also causes upheaval and change different cities. Right. You mean illegal immigration? I'm talking about legal in-country immigration. This is really interesting. I mean, this is what we call the what Louis Brandeis called laboratories of democracy, essentially seeing how different states can implement. Policies and you'll see the movement of people, and Illinois is the greatest test case of this. Illinois should be one of the most prosperous, most fiscally, sound states in the country, I grew up in Illinois. I love it to death, but it's becoming unsustainable. They're doing nothing but raising taxes, their pensions are, are complete and total joke and every other neighboring states Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, Michigan Michigan's not neighboring not touching it, but it's neighboring it, you can get to Michigan in thirty minutes from Chicago. The our booming and prospering, on the backs of the mid west on the backs of Illinois. I should say, and so look what's really interesting is you see, now, people going to Tennessee people going to Texas. You see people going to Florida. Well, what does Texas, Tennessee and Florida all have in common low income tax manageable cost of living, and a free enterprise, booming economy, and you see the exact opposite from states like Connecticut, and Illinois states with high taxes with poorly run urban center public. Schools and corrupt democrat politicians that have run these states, endlessly for years and years and years before we get to the next one, I want to let you know, about a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet President Trump and win the millionth make America great again.

"From the standpoint of different. That is the president is speaking of Steve Hilton about Iran. The dangers of Iran, the reports coming out about them ramping up possible attacks through surrogate because they're cowards on our people, especially in Iraq. Lucas thomas. Join us joins us now for the Pentagon producer reporter, you see them everywhere. Lucas the president got some intelligence week that had everybody all to their schedule. The secretary of state changes schedule, not essential personnel, leave Iraq. And then you have the intelligence experts in Britain say, well, we don't see any difference between what the intelligence we're getting. And the US says they're getting what's the truth there. Good morning. Did an about face. There's a briefing here at the Pentagon, led by British Major General from Baghdad said he didn't see any increase or running back forces against the US and US-backed coalition Iraq and within a few hours, the US military put out a statement rebuking general saying, not only has the threat increased. But US forces from the five thousand troops in Iraq or now being placed on a high alert because of a potential imminent threat from Iran and then yesterday in unguided rocket slams into the near the US embassy in Baghdad. Granted it landed less than a mile away, did not hurt. Anybody didn't kill anybody in caused minor damage, but certainly something that people are noting around your. Yeah. Absolutely. And what about those tankers who were? Hey, no direct ties. No provable ties to Iran now but logic lead you there. Well, each certainly does and hit these. Saudi tanker's Norwegian flag tanker and all that was supposed to be picked up in the Middle East and sent back to the United States. A Saudi statement said as much and certainly no love lost between the Saudis and the Iranians. And the fact that, that all came days after the caution, and then the alert about possible tax by Iran. Notable that the damage is not great. It looked like a very crude explosive used and much like this rocket just a single unguided rocket launched in the direction of US embassy yesterday. So a couple of things, what do you think it takes till Tuesday to brief congress is that unusual? The Pentagon is trying to blow this threat out of the water. And I think over hype it Brian. That's what officials are telling me here. There were calls from the Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer for acting defense. Chiefs, Patrick Shanahan, and the joint staff, general, Denver to priest stem last week, depending on did not change their schedules. They're gonna wait for lawmakers to come back this weekend. Lawmakers are generally in town, Tuesday to Thursday, should part of it with scheduling with lawmakers leaving town late last week. But the Pentagon is in possession of some photos to declassify. Cruise missiles on the decks of ships certainly concern around, here, although there's plenty of lawmakers that are wondering, is this threat serious enough that the US military needs to be sending nuclear capable bombers, the Lincoln strike group in the area two weeks early to train. And in fact over the weekend. The US navy says that the aircraft carrier Lincoln trained with Kearsarge another large and is assault ship, and certainly sending a powerful message to Iran. I want you to Senator Tom cotton said on meet the press yesterday cut seventeen I've read the intelligence, not just over the last two weeks, but for the last four and a half years the intensity and the frequency of this intelligence reporting is significantly heightened over the last two to three weeks. I don't have any doubts that Iran started taking provocative action two to three weeks ago. The United States on the recommendation of our military, make prudent decisions, like deploying new aircraft carrier and b fifty two bombers and patriot missile defense systems through the region. We didn't do those prepare for military action against Iran. We did those things to deter military action by Ron. So I mean he's, he's pretty much. No nonsense guy. That is reputation. That's right. The threat here at the Pentagon, and in the US central command based at. To put these new assets in the region experts, though, say. Evacuation of non-essential personality US embassy in Baghdad. That in some way, what they want, and that's a partial withdrawal from Iraq. And that's what happened last week, you know, some say. Iraq war, certainly, in two thousand fourteen in ISIS was bearing down, new Wisconsin or there was no US evacuation. But today, these things that's the prudent measure to get Americans out of there. All right. I wanted to also talk about something else in the New York Times today, and I've heard this before, and I'm sure you have that these economic sanctions are squeezing the Iranians are hurting economically. The pull out of western companies that started going in after the agreement was signed. Now there's pushback. And we're, we're putting on all this pressure, they can no longer put the seven hundred million dollars to Hezbollah, they can write the checks to a Hamas Islamic Jihad. I mean that's real. And that's a benefit from our perspective. US military firepower in the Middle East. We have not seen any rocket attacks from Gaza from HAMAs from Palestinians, an elsewhere and by Hezbollah officials say has is being squeezed. Of course, they get financing from Iran and. Said about the intelligence of the threat going up to three weeks. What happened to three weeks ago is the one year anniversary of President Trump carrying up the nuclear agreement? There's also a lot of evidence. The present spoke about it last night on FOX, that these actions are squeezing the Iranian very hard, choking off sources of finance, and how do they get back some officials say this is why Iran is telling some of its Shiite militias proxy forces in the region to prepare for possible action, but so far it does appear that ratcheting up tensions, and that nobody wants to take the first shot. At least Edgewood, people were hoping for here at the Pentagon Prebble is going through the South China Sea. They wanna push back on China's bullying in international waters. What can you tell us about that Lucas? Depending on freedom of navigation operations Pentagon and the US government, the Trump administration do not recognize China's manmade McCall fake islands in the South China Sea, where they've installed runways of service air missiles. Missiles, depending on and it's gonna take. Ships and sail within twelve nautical miles that would be what China would consider territory, depending on, doesn't recognize it. They've been doing this activity at least once a month this year. Stretches back to last year. Depending on wants to do these, these patrols regularly. So really, they don't get a ton of media attention and also it sends a message to Beijing that the US is not afraid is not just going to retreat from the region. Go ahead. The secretary of state is I've met with Vladimir Putin. Well, he lab rob last week to possibly set up a meeting, or maybe plowed the ground. Fair g twenty meeting with Vladimir Putin. How did you think anything tangible came out of that? And especially as it relates to Venezuela. I think there's some real real issue of arms control. And with the start treaty expiring soon, where it relates to Venezuela. Is trying to get the Russians out of Venezuela. Try to work on something that they can discuss potentially benefit for. And that's one of the reasons secretary pump went to Moscow pee went to socio home, the seaside resort in Russia. President Putin has. Ministere de ideas US military wants to get Russia out of Venezuela. Not sure that's going to happen anytime soon. But one thing both sides can potentially agree on some new arms control agreements, just like we saw back in the eighties under President Reagan Lucas, thanks so much. Appreciate it. All right. Fantastic one eight six six four zero eight seven six six nine. So there's a lot going on internationally and the president's got his hands full and now North Korea's getting restless, we've seen some of their actions, but about the Iran situation before you get caught up in what should or shouldn't be with your audio. If President Obama had such a great deal he would have gotten the majority of Democrats voting for in the Senate. He would have gotten over sixty they would have been putting of moderate Republicans voted his direction. But instead, not only did you not get every getting Republicans? He get Senator Schumer. He gets Senator Ben corden. I don't believe you got Senator Feinstein. So when it passed it was an agreement, it lifted ripe to be ripped up. And if President Trump doesn't get an agreement US MCA past same thing, if he has a trade deal with China and doesn't get a pass through congress. Same thing. So that's the risk you take. And that's why people around the world saying, can I depend on anything with America because they keep reversing course. Well, if a pass is the right way you can depend on it. Jerry, listen, whol in Dayton, Ohio, Jerry. Hey Brian, this might sound a little long winded. I apologize and hopefully, you'll be able to kind of take what I'm saying and make more sense of it. But I'm really finding it Democrats are able to escape their own past sins while punishing people for the sins of the past in the present, for example, tearing down statues and things of that nature because, you know. Jefferson had slaves or Washington, or whatever the case may be yet. They were the party of slavery, Jim crow they party. But somehow, they're able to escape that and nobody really calls them out on that not enough. I mean, the party of Lincoln, Republicans and all reverse with the Civil Rights Act, nineteen sixties before that the black vote really belong, mostly to Republicans and it really reversed itself. I mean US Senator Burge, a member of the K, K K. I think he was the guy that grain wizard whatever that is. So that was the story for the longest time. But having said that when you go, I'll just take the bigger picture, which referring to his mayor Pete, saying, we should find somebody else to name, big dinners in statues in events, after a set of people like Jefferson arrange Jackson because they had slaves. No excuse slavery. But there's no perfect people in the world and their background is fine. But the background is something we look back and say, how could you have slaves George Washington, how Jeff slaves Thomas? Jefferson. How could you have slaves? Andrew. Action. But that's not all they were about alone, the way they were actually building the country in a way in which they could not have been replaced. There is no country that George Washington, there is no country that Thomas Jefferson. We don't win the war of eighteen twelve or push the British out of eighteen twelve without Andrew Jackson along the way he becomes very impactful president, it may like them or not like those used the last one actually balanced the budget and keep us out of so-called foreign wars AG, Jackson built up the country..

"Seems like the president, you know, this bromance with rand Paul that just got completed somehow they played golf enough and rand with his very out their foreign policy. That's actually libertarian has nothing to do with republicanism. But his masquerading as a Republican somehow God in the president's ear, and instead of the president going in front of his foreign policy team that actually knows this stuff. He just says, hey, it's done. We're gonna do it. We're gonna pull everybody out rans excited. You know, Laura Ingram succeeded, but the rest of the people that actually understand how the world works. The rest of us are pretty confused now the rest of us who thought that we're going to be greeted as liberators in Iraq and would be out in fourteen months. Trillions of dollars later. You understand how the world works out? I think Adam Canseco was one of them. But that was the establishment and the others who marched us into Iraq. And we're going to create a major democracy in the heart of the Middle East. It's going to be a model who marched us. Enter Libya took us into serious ignited that war who tried to build a build our out there in Afghanistan, and who got us involved in a war for for what reason in Yemen. I do not know, but the chickens have come home to roost for these folks and the elites that got us into the war understand. Now, they realize the Trump is beginning to pull out from these wars, and the consequences are going to be many of them are unknown and many of them could be unpleasant, but the United States of America simply cannot sustain the kind of foreign policy they want or you've got allegedly got troops and over one hundred countries. Now, Pat, they always act like it's hundred ninety five still or something where we're not. Running these massive deficits where we don't have twenty trillion in debt. Those days are over we decided to blow all this money with the globalization and blow all this money trillions on these wars. China didn't fire shot and Afghanistan or Iraq. And they're just chalking up the cash Carter suffered but not having been involved in in Navias wars, which were involved nothing. They just they just ignored this and let the Americans get come in. And do it all and the decisions taken. I mean, what has happened is basically, you can go all the way back to the late prospected, poppy Bush, and the idea that the United States could after the end of the Cold War, which we had enormous made enormous sacrifices and cost ourselves greatly to win that we waited. We went basically out to remake the entire world in our own image. And we got into one more after another after another after another and Donald Trump is president because he should we? We can't afford all this. We got to start looking out for ourselves. And what we got. Now, it's the most jolting decision is made. But he's really gonna ignited a national debate on this on on how long and how much we should spend to try to protect some of these countries or try to basically fight every war for all the various countries in the Middle East. Joe Scarborough today, another former pal of yours, Pat was also speculating that there may be other motives in this pullout from Syria, this is foreign policy welfare for Vladimir Putin. He can't even believe I'm sorry. Maybe he can maybe this is connected to something that none of us know about. Me talk to that look flat. Amir Putin is backing Assad in Syria, Iran, Russia, and even Hezballah whatever you say about it. Basically, and the Al Qaeda and ISIS detest and despise. And they they like killing them more than they like killing us to the folks who are in control and Damascus now knows who back them are the ones you're going to have to deal with the Syrian problem. Isis after the American sleeve. So I don't think this is of great benefit to Russia. Frankly, the very fact that we were battling ISIS and still are for for certain period of time is that a great benefit to to Assad because we're fighting one of his principal enemies. Yeah. I again, the hatred of Trump Pat is so. It's so visceral, and it's it's it's on the surface everywhere. Lately. And there's a sense you get. Of feeling that there's blood in the water in the last couple of weeks and center with all the different investigations going on in the media every morning, something new and some breaking news, and I agree with you. I mean, there's detestation there's an effort dot only debris can bring down Trump. But I think to disgrace him and discredit his election as having been illegitimate, and stolen, and then basically to put him in jail or some kind of criminal, and it's it's visual, and it's visible. Maybe you can ask people. There's there's real hatred toward the mand there. Well, it is it is it Pat is it more his tonality. Is it who he is the way he speaks? Things and and more is it the policies. In other words, if they if they successfully drive him out of office. It's not like we're going to go back to the military intervention as some of the bushes. That's never going to work again back at all ever. In the future because of what's going on in the border. If you don't stop. I mean, what is clearly an invasion again from from the south. From Africa and the Middle East and Latin America all moving north into the successful countries up the west and expanding their welfare state and really moving in and changing and altering their culture and character and the populations. I think if you don't do that this is really this is the existential threat to the west is not being ruined ruined. The Kirk great building a bridge that is the great existential threat to the world, I think western world, and there is disagreement with that on the part of the left country. There is opposition to his is all of his policies on in foreign policy of upbringing, but bringing down the American empire ridding all these commitments around the world stopping these wars being threatened and challenges every aspect of what these folks believe ought to be done. And what? They've been doing in addition to that there is a personal thing. They don't like him personally. And he the the back and forth has gotten. I mean, it's almost gotten to back in the days of Andrew action. Outdoing each other. Talk is going now. Now, it's. And I do think they they believe that somehow once Trump's gone all the problems that they created with this this addiction to globalization, and do this cheap Chinese goods and to open borders like that's going to somehow then work. Well, look at what's happening in France. They they bought in completely to globalization, and they welcomed all these people there, and they hoped it was going to work out, and they did the climate change stuff, and and people are miserable because the standard of living is stalled out or going down. So people will ultimately say, no. And then what happens, Pat, then where do we go? Well, this is why you can see where we're we're we will go by where we are going. If you take nationalism and populism and even individual leaders and rulers rising up to represent the will of the people when it's not represented by the democratic politics that exists there. The things the movements and the issues and the ideas that created Trumpism or still people want secure borders. They want their own company maintain they don't want to be bled to death for foreign wars. They realized that they're spending more than their shaving and their spending themselves into bankruptcy. This is happening all over the western world or the United States and people aren't going to go back to the same old. Same old Gabriel in the election of twenty six hundred. If you take cruises voted Bernie's vote and Trump's vote, the repudiation of the establishment elites, and what they delivered with massive. I mean that was rich utter rejection and the idea that if they overthrow Trump and climb back into the position of power and get all the titles are used to have they're going to people logged in welcome in the deluding themselves. Then the semantically the weekly standard will reconstitute itself. Somebody. The crossroads at.

"Nested eastern assets from Maryland, Massachusetts, Natsios for mass. -chusetts Massias printing here. Sorry before he got to us Cassandra moment, Andrew was brought into salvage a boondoggle of transportation project in Boston. The big dig it redirected a massive highway into a tunnel under the city. Andrew came in several years into the project. At that point. It was a mess with huge cost overruns. Andrew had two things going for him. He had experienced leading big institutions and he had his temperament. I'm sort of a type a. personality, very kind of aggressive and dominant figure in any institution that I run. So I could get the institution to do what I wanted to do. What I thought was right to do. He wasn't fact able to figure out why the project's finances were out of whack, but his efforts weren't always appreciate it. It was the most difficult year of my career. Actually, I actually felt safer in Sudan, and. Iraq and Afghanistan that I did in Boston. One person threatened to break my neck while I was investigating the big and I always threatened once I took over to someone to threaten to kill me. Then to that did not happen in Sudan, Andrew spent much of his career overseas. His experience leading several national and international organizations, coffee, I of President, George W Bush who appointed him to lead USA ID. That's the agency responsible for America's involvement in international development. It's here that Andrew had his prophetic moment. In two thousand three, Andrew briefed top members of the Bush administration about escalating violence in Sudan. By that point, marauders charging into villages, setting them on fire, sending civilians fleeing. They were known as Janjia. We'd the quickly took over a vast industy region on the edge of the Sahara Darfur Andrews warnings and advice had an impact the US supplied billions of dollars in aid to Sudan. Over the next several years inspire, the economic difficulties are a, we'll continue to flow President, Bush all to put political pressure on Sudanese leaders. Some of his measures were behind the scenes. Others more public. The news media began to take note today. President Bush announced tough, new economic sanctions, against Sudan, over the continued persecution of the minority population and Dr four, his Andrews actions have become a case study on affective, warnings. That's according to Christoph Mayer. Professor fewer opinion, international politics of King's College. London Christoph spent many years studying how warnings are made and which ones managed to break through the noise. He says, there are several reasons, Andrew Natsios manage to persuade the Bush administration to act. One is he was able to show how a further escalation with many hundreds of thousands of people that was was highly likely, and he was able to put that into a presentation. You chart the escalating, the conflict into the future. Andrew commissioned a study that predicted how many people would die if the US didn't intervene. He also got US spy-satellites to take pictures of Dr four to photograph the ground every day to show the villages that were being burned from day to day. And these photographs were so clear that the photographs were unimpeachable in. Terms of their quality in terms of what the atrocities were in the burn thirty one hundred villages. They displaced two million people. So Andrew laid out clear evidence. There was something else that helped make the case to the president. He was an insider was I taken seriously? Yes, because I had a relationship with the president's that's presidents plural. He had campaigned twice for George H W Bush, and he had worked on the George W Bush campaign in two thousand. He was not seen as one of these do-gooders one of these kind of liberal NGO types. Yes. He had a history in the NGO sector. He was an expert, but he was also a kind of a conservative pedigree he had experienced in the armed forces. He was seen as someone who understood that the president's time was precious and understood the preferences and was seen as part of us. And therefore, if someone who was seen as kind of someone who's going to almost national security type, if someone like. That would warn about the consequences of that kind of conflict in that country. He, he would be taking so much more seriously than someone who seen in a very different light besides his political credentials. Andrew was also an insider in another way. He was a Christian who spent years leading an international Christian NGO. He knew that George W Bush's identity as a Christian was important to him and important to his reelection chances in two thousand four Christoph mayor says, Andrew laid out the political consequences of inaction and are four where many of the civilians being attacked, what Christian he was able to show how that kind of escalation would be politically relevant to the Bush administration at the time how it would impact on the reelection chances in how it would connect to Christian constituency in the US which of course the supporting constituencies of the Bush administration because it was also Christians where in in Saddam. Effected by this violence, Andrew implicitly understood a widespread psychological bias. We all tend to look more sympathetically at suffering when the people who are suffering have something in common with us. There's another part of this. Andrew is successful because he did not President Bush to make a major u-turn from the very beginning of his administration. The president had been interested in what was happening in Sudan. The first presidential review that the president ordered was on Sudan policy. Now, what came to be known as genocide dot four did claim hundreds of thousands of lives. So it may be hard to see Andrews warning as effective. And yet if Andrew had not acted Kristoff says he believes things would have turned out worse.
