"About how they're helping the Ayatollah Khamenei engaging Israel engaging oppressing its people how that complies with U. S. sanctions laws last month they wrote me a letter back saying essentially well they didn't want to comply with that they said they thought it was more beneficial to help this jihadist terrorists to speak and so they were going to allow him to speak and so today I asked the department of justice and the department of treasury to open a criminal investigation because whether whether Twitter agrees with the law or not no U. S. company here the ability to ignore federal law that was passed by the president the samba Brock Obama wasn't on campus on the log Brock Obama signed a law Twitter is just openly ignoring the condescension the arrogance needs these big tech companies is really stunning because the interaction is basically Hey guys I think you're violating the law and they say what laws who cares the laws for little people the law isn't for big tech companies like us you know it if this ties in directly with what they've been seeing over the past few days Twitter doesn't want to kick off the Ayatollah of Iran Twitter doesn't want to kick off people who are actual enemies of the United States Twitter doesn't want to censor them doesn't want to add fact checks doesn't want to do anything but the moment that the duly elected president of the United States says something that contradicts the political narrative that they want not not only are they going to add a fact check quote unquote but they're actually gonna censor what he's saying they're actually going to censor the White House account itself yeah that that that's exactly right so two days ago Twitter decided all to to to to put out a quote act Jack resident bought pointing out that mail voting this motor which which happens to be indisputably correct box Twitter Twitter shot into a CNN fact check because CNN is such a credible nonpartisan tied the knot that is dripping with sarcasm there lies a lot in response to that the president issued an executive order are making clear there will be legal consequences to social media companies not behaving as neutral public forums but instead engaging in active censorship I know exactly or free billionaire owner of Twitter got mad at all and so last night actually blocked the president's tweet and then the president making what what what was calling for for law enforcement to stop the rioting and violence in Minneapolis but Clinton like how you said it in a block that this violates our terms the contrast women where is he willing to promote excellence take the Ayatollah Khamenei calling for the death of the structured is wildly anti semitic there is a real problem with that they don't put that out in direct violation of U. S. sanctions law but when it comes to the president trying to stop violence in a major American city that is burning as we speak that is what is going to step in and center and say well Mr president you don't get to speak because we the almighty kept there what was that you point out the way the absurdity the irony here that of all the things that have ever been tweeted but the first one the Twitter wants to quote unquote fact check on the president it is something you said that is indisputably correct and then the the first tweet that they want to actually sensor to so you can't look at this if you do want to access and see the tweet gonna click this button is gonna take you to another page they they characterize that as condoning or encouraging violence when actually the person was doing was discouraging violence with singers too much violence and we need less violence one thing that you have been doing now for years is providing the arguments for why this conduct by big tech is unacceptable you know I think a lot of us knowing our god that this is not acceptable speeches politics politics is speech and these guys are controlling speech and censoring it and and and really tilting it in one direction against the other side of the aisle but we haven't been able to articulate it you've provided these arguments here now I guess two laws that they might be violating or abusing section two thirty of the communications decency act and these U. S. sanctions against Iran what do you think is going to be the mechanism here by which big tech finally starts playing by the rules and stop abusing its power well Michael I think you raise a a very good plan a lot of conservatives a lot of libertarians are are conflicted are not sure what to do they did they see the censorship they seen that that's what they're trying to speak on social media they get silence but at the same time we see conservatives and libertarians who understandably R. H. staff people of government that's always a good skeptics N. B. say well they're private companies let them do what they want and and and what that ignores a couple number one these big tech companies aren't just any private company may have become monopoly Google is a monopoly yes she is a monopoly Facebook and Twitter the America power those for company the new team is owned by Google so really those.

US kills Iran general Qassem Suleimani in strike ordered by Trump

"It it has been the defining dynamic of Donald Trump's presidency indeed of Donald Trump's life 'cause crisis solve crisis or pretend to then claimed credit nevertheless trump's decision to order the drone strike which killed senior Iranian military officer Kassim Salamone in Baghdad? Doc Dead on January third was a surprise major general. All the money was the long serving commander of the coulds force of Iran's Islamic Revolution in regards core the could force considered a terrorist organization by the United States is the unit largely responsible for Iran's various foreign military enterprises in Iraq Syria Lebanon Yemen Afghanistan and elsewhere Sulejmani was one of Iran's most powerful for men in cities across Iran. His death prompted scenes of mass mourning reminiscent of the one thousand nine hundred nine funeral of Ayatollah Khamenei leader of Iran's Islamic Revolution. Iran was obliged to respond and did so but incuriously circumspect fashion at least for for the moment on January eighth a barrage of ballistic missiles struck two basis in Iraq at which. US forces are stationed but did only the kind of damage that gets done when you're not trying all that hard to do real damage as we go to where it is unclear whether or not the passengers and crew who of a Ukrainian airliner which crashed near Tehran on Wednesday will accidental victims of Iran's retaliation in this episode. Tom Edwards Chaz a special discussion looking. At how the. US and Iran got here and where they might go. Next does the United States killing of Sulamani really make relations relations between Washington and Tehran. Any worse than they already were is Iran. Really willing to call it a draw. Can we expect further confrontation tation as America's presidential election looms and does Iraq get any say in any of this. This is the foreign desk. I I think right now yes. The focus is on the United States because of these airstrikes but the reality is once the dust settles are GonNa be focusing on both again. I it just right now this at this time of tension and these strikes that had come out during the past week is diverting attention which is the taking back. The country of Iraq Iran was on the losing end in many any of these countries in Iraq people were saying we don't want your in Syria in Lebanon and Yemen Iran. Although it seems to be so powerful was on the back foot at the end of two thousand nineteen and and the potential that this strike gives Iran is a way to try and change that so there is a benefit potential benefit. Iran could take advantage of the base has really divided lighted about. US engagement in the Middle East by enlarge. They want the war's end they want the president to focus on the United States and its interest. He has to balance to the looking tough but he hasn't liked to take action that puts us back in the middle of what is really an unsolvable challenge. That is the middle at least at this moment in time.

Trump calls on other countries to abandon Iranian nuclear deal

"President trump addressed the nation today his first words got right to the point as long as I'm president of the United States Iran will never be allowed to have a nuclear weapon after Ron made good on its threats and fired ballistic missiles at two military bases in Iraq that house US troops it was a very tense night there were no reported casualties or injuries today the president touted America's military might but also said we do not want to use it he called on other nations to come together to strike a new deal to manage Iran's nuclear ambitions nations have tolerated Iran's destructive and destabilizing behavior in the Middle East and beyond those days are over Iran has been the leading sponsor of terrorism in their pursuit of nuclear weapons threatens the civilized world we will never let that happen tension is still in the air tonight at least two rockets fell in the green zone near the US embassy in Baghdad but without causing any casualties to make sense of all this we spoke with evil doll earlier today he served as US ambassador to NATO for four years during the Obama administration and is now president of the Chicago council on global affairs I as ambassador dollar for his gut reaction to trump's remarks today well I think we came to the brink of war and the president wisely decided to step down and away from that brink and decide that the escalation I've gone on far enough the danger of getting into a war at the con too great and the right thing to do now was to take the temperature down a little bit were there specific things trump said that really stood out for you yeah I think he said that he took the reigning in action as a way to stand down from the escalation and you said that was a good thing I think that was the right interpretation and your radiance decided that they have to respond in some form militarily to the killing us generals who the money and did so by making clear that they have to respond from Iran was a missile attack that in the end did damage to materials but not to people in the house in court in terms of what trance overall strategy is with Iran were you able to draw any conclusions today well here's the problem because the overall strategy that he has pursued since walking away from the nuclear deal in may of twenty eighteen has failed it led us to the brink of war because rather than Iran giving in to our maximum pressure campaign they decided to engage in what the Ron calls maximum resistance and as a result the two fundamental objectives that we have set ourselves a modification in Iran's behavior with regard to the beach and a further constraints on its nuclear program both of those objectives are further away today than they were in may twenty eighteen so rather than continuing down the sale pass this is the time it seems to me when the president having seen and stood at the brink of for what you re assessors entire strategy I'll take a new approach a lot of people think Iran's long game is getting the US out of Iraq completely informally making a racket total proxy of Iran is that what you believe that's what the Ayatollah Khamenei S. at today it's what president who I need tweet it today that clearly they want not only the United States out of Iraq they want the United States out of the region that is not in our interest it is in our interest to continue to have good relations and the continued presence economic political military in the region and therefore we have different objectives the question is are we going to achieve that through war are gonna cheetah through diplomacy an effective strategy I think the answer ought to be go for more effective strategies and we should up today which was only lettuce incredible yeah and as a former diplomat where is the room for pharmacy between the US and around at this point well the first thing to do is to re engage with our allies in Europe and indeed the China and Russia all of whom were members and signed up to the nuclear we have found ourselves now isolate once again alone in the world when it comes to both Iran writ large and the nuclear question specifically and rather than this the present it today calling on other countries to walk away from the nuclear deal we need to re engage with those parties and indeed with Ron to get back to the negotiation that allows for more stringent limitations on Iranians nuclear program a better and more coordinated strategy with our allies to deal with Iranian this behavior in the region and other stops but the first step for us is rather than telling the Europeans that they should do something they're not going to do which is get out of this agreement was to start working with the Europeans to find a common strategy towards the region in general and towards the Iran but the very first thing out of president trump's mouth today even before he said hello to the audience was Iran will never have a nuclear bomb basically as long as I'm alive well and I hope that that he's right about that that is a strategy that his two predecessors have also been pursuing but if that's the question why would he even go back to the negotiating table well because the way to get around without nuclear weapons is one of two ways you either prevented from doing so militarily and we just saw how dangerous that Rhodians or you do it through diplomacy so the trying we have decided that military action and further escalation is not the right way to go the only option we have left is diplomacy not diplomacy starts not just with Tehran but more importantly with our allies in Europe with Russia and China and even a dollar if you have the ear of the Iranian leadership what would you tell them I would tell them that if they want to make sure that their people I have a better economic future they need to engage with the United States and European allies Russia and China to find a new agreement that puts stringent limitations on if you're clear program while allowing it to gauge economically but the rest were if a dollar served as ambassador to NATO from two thousand nine to two thousand thirteen is currently the president of the Chicago council on global affairs thank you very much thank you for on a run in perspective on the crisis we reached out to send up a semi and Iran's capital she teaches American studies at Tehran university and a sympathetic to Iran's government from early in the morning could ever different feelings coming from the Iranians some of are very proud of what the Iranians have gone specially the military bases his target as was considered as one of the major cases on the fact that nothing happened to the missiles and they targeted the place of a proud of this at the same time people were worried about the reaction of the United States so for the Iranians I think the major issue right now is that this will in a sense of making Americans to withdraw from from the whole Middle East I think this was one of the major issues that was raised by Iran's supreme leader today inherent in his speech where he sat okay because a slap on the face of the Americans you tacked to the base and however he also said that the major issue for all is and that the Americans were little from the whole Middle East and did you get a sense of what might be around position if the US does not withdraw from at least Iraq I think the Iranians would wait and see what happens and if this presence means that the Americans are going to target you're wanting an interest you Manian figures official figures and for a day that would be another harsh reaction it was really interesting to hear trump began his speech with a straight line saying that Iran will never in my time have a nuclear bomb but after that let's hear president trump describing what he sees right now as a wrong position far ran appears to be standing down which is a good thing for all parties concerned and a very good thing for the world so Xena is Arron standing down well first of all Iranians never claimed a D. are developing a nuclear weapon so first of all I think this assumption is that wrong or the premises long itself so what I would say is a doing is I'm not making a nuclear bomb and the whole thing is a mistake president trump also said this our missiles are big powerful accurate lethal and fast under construction or many hypersonic missiles the fact that we have this great military equipment however does not mean we have to use it we do not want to use it American strength both military and economic is the best deterrent then of a semi do you accept that statement at face value is this now the the opportunity for both parties to de escalate and we'll tensions now he's well I don't think there would be any signs of relations in the foreseeable future was what happened to draw also a money and his **** shin if it has a significantly you and make a major blow to the feelings of the Iranian so you so the massive presence of Iranians for the funeral of the journal essentially money in gun raising the issue of getting close or friends at this time since very in a sense very stupid because how you can kills a high ranking official Iranian also show and then talking about having translations a day Laney ins is enough but before this whole escalation started between Iran and the U. S. there were these demonstrations in Iran over corruption and austerity what happened to those well actually what happened was that the Iranians became very United after what happened to Joe will slay money especially yesterday when the this funeral was taking place and I wasn't street I so people from different walks of life participating in the funeral because general Soleimani was like a sort of person who did not belong to specific Uranian political party he had a very simple life and people felt like he was also leaving the same or similar life close to the ordinary Iranians and this I actually created this universe themselves from being United against a foreign invasion once I got to say there were reports of many victims killed by running authorities during and after those demonstrations I mean do you think the families of those right those victims are just giving up and United by soul monies that suddenly I don't have contact with these people to ask about their feelings however this is the sort of thing that might happen in any other country then a foreign invasion or in front of a four nation is vice people usually get United and they put aside their differences so this majority I might say that these are all day actually are United not not just FOR D. Iranian government but for did hold the integrity of the lawn and its security xenon high semi teaches at the university of Tehran she joined us from the capital of Ron thank you very much thank you for having

Did Iran achieve its goals with missile strike?

"International diplomatic correspondent Nick Paton Walsh is in Riyadh Saudi Arabia let's assess now whether or not the Iran has achieved its goals with a missile strike it's hard to know whether Iran calculated this would go off quite so ineffectively fall weather is simply a show that their technology isn't as good as they may have now we'll never know the inner workings of their thinking remember most for full suggested that Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei wanted a military response what if somebody can come off around his ministry against US troops while many other running official said US troops would be killed it was essentially he seemed to think he will be the military rather than Iran's proxies and allies across the region are often more effective in because action less connection they will carry it out this is a direct attack absolutely you have to probably assess whether or not Iran's military mu they can guarantee getting certain places within the spaces you will call their attacks against Saudi old facilities was successful in those that hate but some of the missiles fell short so it's always a hundred percent success rate when it comes to that kind of technology at the time of night they choose Michael as you well know in a minute she based the U. S. in Iraq in conflict areas like this the troops office the ball sometimes intense housing units that protected by concrete tables surrounded by have fun because they may have been a running calculation this would be a lot of fines but little for loss of casualties on the American side that could be the case entirely possibly which leads you to the idea is this simply an offramp for U.

It was really widespread more than hundred cities very involved in the demonstrations but even after the fuel price price increase. Iran still has some of the world's lowest gasoline prices. Why are people so angry? The thing is we're talking about a country that has inflation of about forty percent and unemployment of about fifteen percent and a large number of young people are graduated from the university and cannot not find jobs and that is the direct result of US sanctions which were reimposed last year by President. Donald Trump.

U.S. Says Tehran Is to Blame for Attacks on Fuel Tankers

U.S. Says Tehran Is to Blame for Attacks on Fuel Tankers

"It is the assessment of the United States government that the Islamic Republic of Arado responsible for the attacks that occurred in the Gulf of Amman today, America's secretary of state. Mike Pompeo lamed Iran for an attack on two tankers in the Gulf of Oman yesterday. It came just a month after a similar attack nearby on four shifts, which America also claimed was carried out by Iran, the United States will defend its forces interest, as dandruff our partners and allies to safeguard global commerce and regional stability. He suggested. Well, there are no other groups in the region that have the training capabilities for this kind of thing to shop Joshi is the economists defense at attack since he spoke. The Americans have also released a video showing a small boat removing a mind from the hull of one of the ships, and it's the kind of small boat that the Iranian revolution. Regards have been using in the region. And the American say that this points to their culpability. So all of that is obviously a very worrying escalation in the region. So let's wind back a little bit and talk about what exactly happens yesterday. Well, this date to ships in the Gulf was long which is right next to the strait of all Moos a key oil and gas waterway were hit by some kind of attack initially it was thought to be a torpedo, perhaps a mind, one of the ships was carrying methanol. The other one was carrying crude oil forty four of the crew were rescued. One of them was injured, but the ships were in absolutely terrible condition. Those huge plumes of smoke coming out of them. And this is worrying because it's one of the busiest routes for seaborne oil trade in the world, the straight of all news, I think carries about thirty percent. A seaborne oil trade. It's an absolutely vital chirp point. And if it keeps getting. Struck like it was this week. It's going to have major consequences for world energy markets. It's going to have major consequences for the Arab states in the region. Who are the major oil-exporters in that part of the world? And the tiny of these strikes is also extremely curious. How do you mean? Well, Shinzo Ave, the Japanese Prime minister walls in Iran. He was meeting Iran's president Hassan Rohani and on Thursday itself as the attacks took place, he was missing very unusually for any for western western allied leader. He was meeting the supreme leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, and that was essentially seen as sort of US encouraged effort by Japan to try and find a way to begin a dialogue between the US, Iran amid a period of spiraling tensions in a sense that the, the nuclear deal was falling apart, the region in Yemen in the Gulf of imam was becoming more tense and Japan was supposed to be de escalating that and ironically, one of the ships that was hit was carried. Being Japanese cargo. So why then if it were actually around who did this? Why would they do that during what seems to be a sensitive, diplomatic moment, will the Russian Al would be that Iran has something of a history all's attacks on shipping. Particularly in the nineteen eighties at to prolonged Tanka war with Iraq, which ravaged shipping in the straight of Hormuz and the Persian Gulf region. And this time round, we have to remember that Iran is under enormous pressure from the United States on the sanctions to prevent them from selling their oil in the last couple of months, a US has tried to shut down any oil exports from Iran to its Asian customers, who previously had sanctions waivers. So Iran is understandably furious at this. The US aim is to pressure, Iran over the nuclear deal to force around to reopen those talks into into essentially agree to a more favorable deal for America. Iran wants to show. It has leverage why. One of the sorts of leverage. It may have is the ability to influence shipping in this international waterway and to say that if we not loud to export oil. Well, our, our adversaries, the United Arab Emirates Saudi Arabia. They won't be allowed to export oil. It's impossible to escape comparisons with the, the attacks that happened. Very nearby. Almost exactly a month ago. Do you believe they're linked and that the motivations behind them would be the same? It's very hard to see how they wouldn't be linked. The American certainly think that Iran conducted the attacks a month ago as well that I it was around that planted mines on the four ships that were anchored off the United Arab Emirates, and that also was a moment of serious tension. That was just days after the Iranians had said they would would draw from provisions of the nuclear deal, it was very shortly after the Americans had escalated sanctions on Iran, and I think it wouldn't surprise me at all to learn that this was the next stage in Iran effort to. Apply. Calibrated calculated pressure on international shipping to show the United States. If you can put pressure on us, we can put pressure on you through your allies through the international shipping channels. But don't think we will sit back and swallow all of these sanctions, you were throwing at us, but it's not just America who will be paying attention here. What does this mean for, for the wider region, and, and the other entanglements that Iran has well, I think the most serious esscalation occurring in parallel is in Yemen in Yemen in recent months. We have also seen an escalation between the Saudi led coalition and the who the rebels who have in the past being backed by Iran in some very serious ways in the past few days, we saw a Hootie cruise missile attack on a airport in Saudi Arabia that injured dozens of civilians. And again when the lost tanker attack took place about a month ago, we saw a attack. Doc on oil pumping stations in Saudi Arabia by who drone. So the sense of by tally Arabians in others, is that Iran is putting pressure on the region. Not just at sea, but also through the Hootie movement on Saudi Arabia on the UAE on it. Our allies and intern Saudi Arabia is putting pressure on the who 'this whom it sees us Iranian proxies. So, in other words, this esscalation at sea is probably also connected to escalation in Yemen, and that's very bad news for Yemeni civilians caught up in the civil war over there. And so where do you see this ending that where, where does the esscalation stop? Or how could it be stopped? Well, let's remember that if Iran is responsible. It's trying to stay below the threshold of US military escalation, it's trying to keep its attacks if it is a on at a sufficiently low and calibrated level that it doesn't give the Americans excuse to attack. But of course that's a very dangerous game to play. We don't know how. How the United States will respond in the one thousand nine hundred ninety s when international shipping was repeatedly attacked at one point. The Americans lost patients and conducted a huge campaign of airstrikes on Iranian boats, and Iranian oil platforms. Now John Bolton America's national security adviser, a very hawkish man. Macy some advantage in a similar show of force, for now, his Arab allies, don't want to escalate to the use of force that would disrupt their economies. It would disrupt oil shipping even further. But I think we are now in a situation where it's easy to see how a misunderstanding a miscalculation could easily result in a serious serious military response by the United States against their own

"Honestly, as one of the people most harassed on Twitter toughened up journalists like if someone tells you to learn to code, and you just go into your closet and start crying yourself. It seems to me that that is your problem. Not. Twitter problem, but Twitter started banning people for tweeting the phrase learn to code, which by the way is a little funny because it is true. There have been a lot of people including Barack Obama who suggested that if somebody loses their job in an impoverished community. What they really should do is learn to code should become an engineer anyone can become anything at anytime. So people were tweeting journalists learn to code they got banned. Here's a person who is not banned on Twitter today. He Iotova Khomeini from Iran who still is on Twitter, and who literally tweeted this just a few hours ago imam. Khomeini's verdict regarding Salman Rushdie is based on divine versus just like divine versus solid and irrevocable nine thousand nine hundred June fifth now that may not mean a lot to you. But here's what that means. That was a while on salmon Rushdie by imam is whole accommodating, which was designed to end in the murder of Salman Rushdie. So this is the current i-it's whole lot of Iran who is openly calling on Twitter for the renewed murder of Salman, Rushdie, that's wheat. Still appears on Twitter. So learn to code has been banned Twitter, but not the Ayatollah Khamenei making the claim that Salman Rushdie should be murdered today. Yeah. Twitter doing a great job making the world, a better place. So it's weird to watch. All these tech billionaires talk about making the world a better place at the same time that they're going and doing goat yoga in Tibet or something while allowing Ron to put out whatever propaganda. It it feels like a pretty astonishing stuff. I do have to give some credit today to Zachariah a guy who I'm not particularly fond of as a commentator, but he has a column today in the Washington Post with these stunning breaking news anti-semitism has spread through the Islamic world. Like a cancer. I know I know don't don't have a heart attack. Don't don't gas too loudly. Breaking news anti-semitism has spread through the Islamic world like cancer. But the fact that this is printed in the Washington Post is in and of itself a shock what I love most about this piece by Zachariah is that he starts off by talking about ill Hannah Martin Rashida today, but he doesn't. But the between trysofi them from charges of anti-semitism says in recent weeks attention has focused on to freshman democratic members of congress Ileana mar played two of the fresh faces of the Democratic Party so much freshness. So much face faceless, endless levels of both freshness. And faceless both of whom are Muslim and have made critical statements about Israel, and it's supposed to Arden's, and Eric and supporters their tweets and comments have been portrayed by some as not simply criticisms of Israel. But rather as evidence of a rising tide of anti semitism on the left. I don't know what's in the hearts of the two representatives. It's so funny. How many people on the left are willing to just go with the I don't know what's in their heart argument when they call Donald Trump racist when they say that that Ralph Northam is a racist. They'll say that anybody is racist. But when to open anti-semites, they openly anti-semitic things that it's I don't know what's in their hearts. These things are complex. Maybe they're not radical anti-semites when they praised Hezbollah, and I'll Qaeda as as maybe they're not anti-semites when they accused American supporters of Israel of dual loyalty, maybe I don't know what's in their hearts. Anyway, Zachariah says I believe that Muslims should be particularly thoughtful. When speaking about these issues because he anti-semitism has spread through the Islamic world like a cancer. And then he says Omar into lead are not responsible for this in any way, of course. But they should be aware of this poisonous climate. It's just ignorance is not that they are actively involved in the Islamic community. And do interviews with people who call Israel, the Jewish ISIS? It's not that they have now with Linda Sarsour. No, I guess it must you know, what they're not affected by their innocence. Their innocence abroad, there's sort of walking around being innocent. And they're innocent. Shields them from the fact that their actual radical anti-semites, but at least I'll give Zachariah credit. He points out that Muslim anti-semitism is significantly more prevalent than Christian anti-semitism. It's twice as common among Muslims that among Christians, according to an anti defamation league survey of one hundred countries in two thousand fourteen and he points out that in France, it's become an actual sport. For a lot of radical Muslims to target Jews. Nato's long history of Jewish Muslim relations. But the point is making it, it's it's really funny to watch those left members of the media, even recognizing certain basic truths. Like anti-semitism is rife in the worldwide Muslim community trying to shield the narrative that L Henno Martin Michigan slave are not in fact, anti-semites when both are obviously anti-semites the narrative above all the narrative is all that matters to these folks. And speaking of the narrative above all the media coverage of Amazon pulling out of New York is just fascinating. It's fascinating because the attempts to paint Democrats, not having blown a massive deal. And instead trying to paint them as freedom fighters courageous people fighting for the little guy, I have to say, it's pretty impressive. It is a pretty impressive effort. There's a headline today from CNN. The headline says hell Amazon blew its chance in New York. By Lydia, two pillars of CNN business as David Burge Iowa hawk on Twitter says this this headline is equivalent to again, the headline is how Amazon blew his chance and York bird says this is the equivalent of how billionaire beauty Queen blew her chance with morbidly obese violence, syphilis stalker. That is absolutely accurate. You wanna know how Amazon blew steel by New York completely destroying the deal, and then daring Amazon believe that's how they blew the deal. But don't worry. The Democrats are actually out there defending New York's radicalism today, even the New York Times editorial board it's worth noting. Even the New York Times aditorial board thinks that this is a stupid stupid move Democrats. The New York Times had an editorial today saying that anti corporate activists got what they wanted at a great cost when you are too far left for the New York Times editorial board man you've gone off the rails. But you know, what that's not going to hurt. Democrats in the primaries coming up, we're gonna talk about the radicalism of Democrats in these primaries because it is indeed radical we'll talk about the latest with Amazon the attempts to defend Democrats from the insanity of having sends a massive company outside New York City in order to do what nothing except please. The radical left. I suppose we'll talk about all of that coming up plus a little bit later uncle Ben's S J W storytime, we'll analyze an old. Children's book and demonstrate how America.

"Six point five WDBO could not disagree more. I think by abruptly withdrawing from Syria. A President Trump is handing a great big Christmas gift to Putin of Russia into the Ayatollah Khamenei of Iran, and it's a pretty clear guidepost for me when there is a foreign policy decision. That's cheered by Vladimir Putin and rand Paul. That's a pretty good sign. It's a terrible idea. All right. Here to discuss at that was Senator Chris coons, we're joined by Lieutenant Colonel Allen west. He is a Fox News contributor senior fellow at media research center. Former congressman and Florida's twenty second congressional district. The author of a new book out whole, Texas, hold the nation victory or death. It is available. Now, Lieutenant Colonel west welcome back to the Brian Kilmeade chat. Thank you so much for joining us. It's good to be with you mayor, and I hope you had a very merry Christmas and happy new year. Well, thank you. I I did I had a very nice guy got the Chinese food with my Jewish neighbors. It was awesome. So you heard this cultural? Well, it's a big thing in the northeast Jewish people go to the movies, and and get Chinese food. So it's a it's a big cultural thing so I got to participate this year. So it was fun. There you go. So you heard what Senator coons had to say there about the president hitting a Christmas gift to Russia and Iran, clearly, you agree with that yet Senator rand Paul says that that there is no military solution in Syria or Afghanistan. Here's here's the Senator. You I think that we should look at some of the statements of the people who are advocating that we stay in Afghanistan forever. And we also stay now in Syria with no sort of determined in General Mattis, even General Mattis said that there's no military solution to Syria, and he's also said there's no military solution Afghanistan. So I think the burden is really on Madison. Others who want perpetual war to explain why if there is no military solution. We're sending more troops. I think the onus is really on them to explain themselves. All right. So what do you say to Senator Paul because you disagree with the decision to pull out of Syria. What do you say to Senator Paul? Well, very simple. First of all Senator Paul who's never certain military should understand anyone that asserted. Military does not want to be a perpetual war. We know what war means we don't want to be away from our families and our loved ones at critical times such as Christmas. But we also know that it is very important to not allow enemies of the United States, and anything is afraid of sanctuaries agree, totally that everything is not a military solution. You have to have diplomatic solution. I pull those with Afghanistan that we don't have a diplomatic solution with Pakistan and prevent them from allowing jihadists to have sanctuaries that launch across borders Afghanistan. Whatever never to jail where exact same thing happened with Cambodia Laos, Vietnam. And when you look at what is going on there in Syria. We're not talking about injecting ourselves at the Syrian civil war. But we do not want to see first of all resurgence and a reemergence of Islamic Jihadism, which always looks for chaotic situation. We saw what happened with Obama pulled out of Iraq. And and the the in store result. But also, we have very great allies called the Kurds, and the Kurdish people are the reason why we were able to reduce the terror. Toilet Hegarty of ISIS in the first place. We don't need to betray them and abandon them again. And also there's a third person that this has victory into a vast. Turkish president Erdogan without a doubt is not a friend to the United States. Where can I think we should be looking at expelling Turkey as long as he's the president from data? You know, that was something I was going to ask you about about. And whether we could trust him because this all came out of allegedly people have not on speaking on condition of anonymity saying that that the president was having a conversation with someone about this and John Bolton was listening in and the airline went on the offensive with the president said, he'll look, you know, you said that, you know, we we don't once we can handle it once the once the war is over once ISIS has been beaten that you can take bring your tubes home. Well, even you said that their ninety third their territories been reduced down to one percent wire. You still hear the president allegedly asked that question to John Bolton who had to admit that. Yes, it's down to one percent. And that's when the president said fine. We're out. Why can't they hold that? Why why is it going to grow? If our two thousand guys leave well, first of all while we trust someone like to one who allowed a foreign fighters to transit through Turkey into Syria to join ISIS in the first place, and we know Israel strategic goal and objective is to destroy any hope. Of independence for the Kurdish people. The second thing is that anytime, and I've read many different reports they're estimating from fifteen to thirty thousand. Isis fighters is still remains just to put that in perspective, that's to American light infantry divisions. And if that is still in existence they can reconstitute they can conduct small type of threats, and what have you? And now you're having refugees to include Christians and others that are trying to come back into their homes. If you still have that threat, what is going to continue to ensue and will earn one once again allow ISIS four or five hours to transit through and come into into Syria. And also heard wise the same person that allow for the current destabilization of Europe because he allowed all of those migrants, which included Jihadist infiltrators to go into Europe. Thanks Angela Merkel. And now look at the terrorism that they have. So I don't see why anyone would allow Erta wanted to go on the offensive whatsoever. We know that he has been. Financially supporting along with cutter, Islamic Jihadist groups. So why why do you think the president did this? Then if everything what you're saying you convince me, but I also find it hard to you know, like how long do we have our two thousand soldiers? We keep a presence there. Do we keep them there? Forever. Well, this is the saying, you know, the military is all about a deterrent. And and we understand that two thousand out of great number. And this is a volunteer. Volunteer military, and I raise my right hand in nineteen eighty two and the the consequences and ramifications that go with that. And as far as you know, answer the question as far as why with President Trump do that the only person that can answer that is President Trump. Look, you know, post World War Two look how long we have been around in Europe. We still have had people there on the Korean peninsula says the nineteen fifties. And this is all about a military deterrent because there's still evil. They're still people in the world that are enemies of freedom and liberty and the things that we stand for and holders our principles and values that other people would like to have a part of. So you know, you have to stop having these short election cycle mentalities when you're dealing with people that have long term strategic goals perspectives and insights and. That's what we're up against what Russia Iran, China, North Korea Islamic jihadists, it it doesn't make sense to me and don't have a lot of time left here. But it doesn't make sense to me because the president if I remember correctly came in saying that, you know, I'm going to untie the hands of the military. I'm going to allow them to fight a more these ridiculous rules of engagement. And I thought I I really like a General Mattis, and I really like general Kelly. I don't work with either one of them. So, you know, what do I know? I'm looking at them from a public perspective. Would it seemed that the once the president did that and he came in and he untied their hands? And he let them run the military that we started to make progress against ISIS and we did reduce their territory down to one percent. Now, they're telling him don't leave Syria, and he has his conversation with Erta one. And then all of a sudden boom were out. Something doesn't add up for me here. There's to me. There's a piece of the puzzle missing. No, you're absolutely right. And the only person that can answer that piece of the puzzle. And put put that piece in there as President Trump look Rampal against Gerald James Mattis, Joe James Mattis has forty years of military experience. Joe James Mattis has been commanding marine combat units in the Middle East and also Afghanistan on all the way back to operation desert shield Desert Storm. That's something Rampal hasn't done. I will take the council of James Mattis over Rampal or president want any day. Yeah. I just wonder if this was I agree with you on that. I I would trust mad dog over to one. But I just wonder if this is one of those things where the president needed a win. And he said, I'm going to bring my my troops home that was a campaign promise. And so it's only two thousand you know, let's let's get out of Syria. Let them fight their battles. We're not going to do it. But I agree. And also with the Kurds. We have abandoned the Kurds over and over and over again. You know, they're just gonna get slaughtered. It's a terrible thing. I you know, I that's what I see because we've done this before in the past. And then they keep trusting us. And we keep. Offering them up like lambs and it gets slaughter. Remember, President Obama beta campaign promise, and I remember Joe Biden saying his withdrawal from Iraq will go down as one of the greatest, you know, foreign policy military decisions ever, look how that worked out and the media is not going to be kind of President Trump and after bath like it was tied shield it Barack Obama with the rise of ISIS and all the horrible vile vicious things that they did in that art world. Yeah. And that's true. And I'm sure the president realizes that they are not going to be kind to him. They are not going to today. Don't judge him fairly period end of story. Let alone give him the same leeway that that they that they give gave to President Trump. If you want to hold on. Can we can we talk about the shutdown with you coming up if you'd hold on? Sure, I got a little time. Right. Great were with a Lieutenant Colonel Allen west more coming up on the Brian Kilmeade shell. Now,.

"I could not disagree more. I think by abruptly withdrawing from Syria. A President Trump is handing a great big Christmas gift to Putin of Russia into the Ayatollah Khamenei of Iran, and it's a pretty clear guidepost for me when there is foreign policy decision. That's cheered by Vladimir Putin and rand Paul. That's a pretty good sign. It's a terrible idea. All right. Here to discuss at that was Senator Chris coons were joined by Lieutenant Colonel Allen west. He is a Fox News contributor senior fellow at media research center. Former congressman in Florida's twenty second congressional district the author of a new book out whole, Texas, hold the nation victory or death. It is available. Now, Lieutenant Colonel west welcome back to the Brian Kilmeade chat. Thank you so much for joining us. It's good to be working married. I hope you had a very merry Christmas and happy do you. Well, thank you. I I did I had a very nice guy got the Chinese food with my Jewish neighbors. It was awesome. So you heard this multi cultural, well, it's it's a big thing in the northeast Jewish people go to the movies and get Chinese food. So it's a it's a big cultural thing so I got to participate this year. So it was fun. There you go. So you heard what Senator coons had to say there about the president heading a big Christmas gift to Russia and Iran, clearly, you agree with that yet Senator rand Paul says that that there is no military solution in Syria, or if ghanistan here's here's the Senator. I think that we should look at some of the statements of the people who are advocating that we stay in Afghanistan forever. And we also stay now in Syria with no sort of determined in General Mattis, even General Mattis said that there's no military solution to Syria, and he's also said there's no military solution to Afghanistan. So I think the burden is really on Madison. Others who want perpetual war to explain why if there is no military solution. We're sending more troops. I think the onus is really on them to explain themselves. All right. So what do you say to Senator Paul because you disagree with the decision to pull out of Syria. What do you say to Senator Paul? Well, very simple. First of all Senator Paul who's never certain military should understand. Anyone that certain military does not want to be a perpetual war. We know what war means we don't want to be away from our families and our loved ones at critical times such as Christmas. But we also that it is very important to not allow enemies of the United States is a freedom to have sanctuaries. Now. I agree totally that everything is not a military solution..
