The Republicans have to stick together better. You don't see that one thing I respect about the Democrats. They stick together. You know what they have lousy policy. They want open borders. One sanctuary cities that went a lot. They want to raise your theywant to quadruple your taxes. But the one thing is they stick together. The Republicans have to learn and he's 100% right there different types of Democrats. There are Socialists. There's whatever the hell bite and claims that he is today. But they all stick together. There's always a couple squirrely Republicans that want to make a name from the self and break apart. She would've mentioned Jeff Flake, and it's horrible book. Well, there was a tweet night would like to hear that It was a tweet quote. Senator Little Ben Sasse of the Great State of Nebraska seems to be heading down the same and glorious path as former senators. Little Bob Corker, whose approval rating in Tennessee went from 55 to 4 and Jeff the Flake Flake. His approval rating in Arizona went from 56 to practically nothing. Now, for those who don't remember the feud with Bob Corker. He was the Tennessee Senator Bob Corker was really upset. Then a lot of Republican senators didn't want to tick off Donald Trump and rub him the wrong way before midterms, and he made this little whiny speech. Out there at Capitol Hill. Well, gosh, we might upset the president. We might upset the president of the United States before the mid terms, we might poke the bear. I can't believe it. And if you remember someone like if he sounds like somebody famous if you put the audio of Barney Fife from Andy Griffith side by side to that, dude, they're the same person. We might upset the president of the United States. Before the midterms. I can't believe it looks like there's gonna be trouble. Way might bear me.

"Home prices skyrocketed, even in poor parts of the country. Then the recession struck. Inmarsat County, California home values plunged 50%. Nearly two and three homeowners in Moore said, found themselves underwater the old more than their homes were worth. It's a destruction of wealth. That's Close toe unprecedented in that destruction of wealth is really occurring and hitting hardest people in the same middle and lower income rages even into the upper middle class. So that is this. This is actually even amplified by the fact that middle class households rely on home equity as their main source of wealth. Middle income Americans generally don't have huge pensions. They don't usually have AH, lot of wealth in the stock market. Ah lot of wealth and bonds. On DSO. Housing really is the heart of their wealth, and, as a result is a big decline in house prices really hits that group of people the hardest when it happens. One of the consequences of a buildup in debt is that when things don't sour people in debt cut back dramatically on their spending. Eventually. This also affects people who were not part of the borrowing boom. They get affected because demand is collapsing for products and services. They may lose their jobs. Soon they are also forced to cut back on spending. And the vicious cycle accelerates the example. We given. Our book actually is the one in Tennessee and Tennessee. We have a lot of manufacturing plants of cars of automobiles, and we give the example of Senator Bob Corker, who basically said We in Tennessee shouldn't care about thie irresponsible borrowing that people on the East Coast and the West Coast were doing. And we then go through the statistics and show that in fact, a lot of people manufacturing cars in Tennessee lost their jobs in 2007 in 2008 and it almost has to be because the cut in demand that was happening on these coasts. So in that sense, Senator Bob Corker is not seeing the full picture. That what is happening on the coast is directly affecting his constituents. So a lot of people attributes the great recession to a banking crisis to the collapse of Lehman Brothers and other financial institutions. But when you look closely at the data, you find that they were warning signals well before the troubles that arose in the banking sector. What were those signals? For example, household spending started to collapse in 2007 especially household spending on what we call durable goods, these air cars or Vernon chur or recreational vehicles. In fact, even in the summer of 2008 which is, of course, prior to the banking crisis, you see pretty dramatic declines in household spending. You see pretty much dramatic declines in what we call residential investment, which is just a fancy way of saying construction, the building of homes these were already seriously dragging down. Theo overall economy and, in fact, the easiest way to see this is that the official dating agency, the National Bureau of Economic Research, They date the start of the recession in the fourth quarter of 2007 which is almost a whole year before Lehman Brothers before the banking crisis..

Trump survives impeachment: US president cleared of both charges

"That all of this is done what happens now for the trump presidency. I mean for the rest of his term. How're you expecting it to be different than and it might have been well in a way? This is like a turbo charge for president trump because he survived this gauntlet this impeachment proceeding without without having to be removed from office. And therefore he's waking up feeling emboldened and empowered and feels a conviction that everything he does is right. He is at the strongest point politically today that he's been in some time. The Gallup poll has his approval rating at forty percent which is sending shivers through the Spines of Democrats Crafts Around the country there are good feelings in the country about the economy which continues to home along to report to you tonight that our economy is the best I it has ever been. He had a pretty powerful economic message in a state of the Union. Even though a lot of it was exaggerated and he made claims that are not true. Jobs are booming. Income Poverty is plummeting. Crime is falling confidences surging. It was a selling argument. It for reelection and our country is thriving and highly respected again and so we can expect I think the president into continue to to sound teams into seek retaliation against all of those. He felt have wronged him in. It's impeachment process with this acquittal. How is that likely to change the office of the Presidency broadly? It's a good question because the evidence about trump's activity in Ukraine is. There's no dispute dispute about what he did. The evidence is clear the testimony was clear. Trump himself has admitted on camera that he wanted the Ukrainian government to do an investigation into his political political opponent and in fact he called on the Chinese government to do the same so what he did is clear what happened is the Republicans in the Senate made a political calculation about out not removing him from office for it that what he did doesn't amount to an impeachable offense and I spent some time in the last days interviewing historians and they said this is a major watershed moment in our nation's history because the way the founders set up our government setup. Our Constitution was to punish and remove presidents. Who who do exactly what? Donald Trump has been proven to have done with Ukraine. This is a system of checks and balances and what's happened is the legislative branch under Republican. Look in control in the Senate is no longer holding the president accountable they're becoming an instrument to propel his power and perpetuate his power and that's concerning to historians it's concerning to legal experts and it certainly would set a precedent. I would imagine for future presidents who will say look if trump got away with this I can get away with it too and it is just an expansion of that sort of executive power which is troubling to those who study the framers and the Constitution. Do you think I mean with a different president. You know ten years twenty years from now our future executive branches likely to think back to this moment and say I can do this. It's okay I'm not going to get in trouble. You know. They they could and we may not even have to look to future presidents for that. President trump has another ten months seven months in office. He may have another four years beyond that and there's no telling what he might try to do going forward because he's escaped accountability this time in the Russia investigation. You know the Muller Team documented did all of these examples for really proven examples where the president sought to obstruct justice but did not charge him or indict him because he's a sitting president narrow justice assists department guidelines about that. Well the very next day after Robert Mueller testified in Congress about this trump picked up the phone and called the Ukrainian president asking for the favor the political favors so he the conclusion he drew from the Muller Investigation and his lack of any legal punishment in that regard was that he can get away with with what he wants to do. He's the president if he does it so be it and the Republicans in on Capitol Hill or are there to support and protect him. So can you talk us through. How the president's President's own lawyers argued that the Senate basically doesn't have the power to to check the president one of the most striking moments in the president's defense came when one of his lawyers? Alan Dershowitz a noted criminal lawyer you've seen him on. TV for years Came to the floor of the Senate and advanced an argument that a lot of legal experts that said was dubious every public official that I know believes that his election is in the public interest. And mostly right your elections in the public interest. He said if the president does something that will help his reelection therefore is in the best interest of the country and if if a president does something which he believes will help him get elected in the public interest. He cannot be held or rather be impeached for for that action that cannot be the kind of quid pro. Quo that results in impeachment. And so that's a blanket. Excuse use for the president to do what he did with Ukraine but obviously anything else that the president deems to be in the interest of his reelection that is an argument that Dershowitz had to kind of walk back a little bit In in some comments he made the next day and he got a lot of heat from legal scholars who said that's just a completely baloney argument argument with no constitutional grounding but it is indicative. I think of how President Trump himself views his power and views his authority as the president and commander-in-chief founder and chief. Did we see a lot of senators latching onto that argument. A few did Actually the Republican senators of course but a few parroted the Dershowitz line came as a way of defending the president and saying basically he's president he can do whatever he wants for his reelection because getting him reelected is in the best interest of our country. What about the way that? The impeachment trial played out in the Senate. The fact that there were no new documents that there were no witnesses is that likely also to set. Its own kind of precedent for or the way that impeachment is handled in the future. Certainly we've only had an impeachment trial three times in our history and so there's not really a blueprint door protocol. Offer how to go about doing this. And and the Senate leaders along with the chief justice of the Supreme Court to kind of change and adapt the rules as they went along to figure out how this would work mark and the Democrats say this was a complete sham. Trial that Mitch. McConnell designed it from the get-go to move quickly to get to a very fast acquittal to turn the page to save trump into move on with the legislative business not to delve into the details. Not To really scrutinize the evidence. The most surprising thing I think watching the Sahlin fold the last few weeks that John Bolton came forward publicly or at least in the manuscript of his book which leaked out through the media with new information right. He's a first first hand witness to what the president wanted done and Ukraine. He offered to testify before the Senate or at least indicated he would if if asked. Here's somebody who could have come forward to provide a new to account that would have provided new evidence to this case and there was no interest among the Republican majority in the Senate to hear what he had to say. I don't believe the testimony is necessary. The house else managers have a burden of proof a burden of proof to prove their case they had fallen woefully short. We now have allegations from Mr Bolton. I think they would have more credibility if the allegations came from someone else. There is no new information in my opinion based on what John Bolton has known but today in an effort to generate interest in a book have selectively released. Information that that to me doesn't go beyond what we've seen in the seventeen witnesses who've already testify only two. Republican senators voted to allow witnesses. Mitt Romney and and Susan Collins of Maine came to what extent is the Senate giving up the power that they have to oversee the president of provide any kind of check on the president. Give us a sense of the power that's been given up with the smooth you know they've they've been giving up power to this president for three years now in in part because Republicans threat the party live in fear of him. He has such an intensity of support within the Republican base and approval rating among Republicans of eighty to ninety percent and he follows these things very closely and vows to retaliate and shows that he can punish people if they betray him across him. Just ask former Senator Jeff Flake or former senator Bob corker. So there's that fear factor in the Senate and and what they've done to adapt to that is is not to stand up to him not to ever say he's wrong and in turn. They're getting some of their agenda through right. They're getting tax cuts passed. They're getting a lot of conservative. Justices installed hold onto the federal judiciary. They feel like Mitch. McConnell certainly feels like this is an opportunity to advance the conservative agenda but they just need to placate eight trump and played a trump and keep him calm but in so doing they're giving up their power of accountability. And it's certainly not the way that the framers and the founders imagined Dr our system of government working in Democracy Phil Rocker is the White House. Bureau chief for the Post. His new book written with Carol Lennox is called a very stateful genius. Donald J trump's testing of America. It's out in stores now.

"According to the trustees in twenty thirty four and I've just gotten started. Donald Trump stands in the way of that utopia of that paradise. They must destroy him. Some point. I'm going to tell you a little story about this book that I've completed in the editing process and so forth. I think you're gonna find it. Absolutely fascinating. I've got more stories more information tucked away in two hundred and forty pages. Give or take. Then I ever had before. And it's not dense the book I made it especially readable. Because I want to get it out there and his broadly as possible. President of the United States continues to do historic things. In a place where history matters. The birth of Judaism. The birth of Christianity. The birth of Islam. The president of the United States. Donald trump. We'll be remembered in the Middle East for a thousand years. He will be remembered by our enemies as the enemy. And he will be remembered by our friends. Is the great Donald Trump. UC debut him quite differently. And CNN and MSNBC in the New York Times and the Washington Post and all the rest of. The relationship between Donald Trump and Benjamin Netanyahu is unparalleled unparalleled. It's unequal. And while the liberals. In Israel, throw Bibi Netanyahu out the way, the left throughout Churchill after World War Two. Well, we the American people throw Donald Trump out. Who stands between us? In the insanity on the left. You look at what Donald Trump has done. In the Middle East. The ISIS caliphate has been defeated. Ladies and gentlemen, that doesn't mean ISIS is ultimately defeated like rats like cockroaches. They know how to hide but their territorial control is over. And this president did it in two years despite all the attacks from congress all the investigations from the special counsel, all the smears from the media. He's accomplished something. Barack Obama could not accomplish. He's given no credit whatsoever. None. He stopped Syria from gazing. It's people something Barack Obama's red line. And then he ran Trump. Stop them. He stopped them. This president said. This president said. At the United States is going to recognize Jerusalem. As the capital of Israel because it is the capital of Israel. Virtually every president the modern era has said the same thing. And then they lied. He was told don't do it. Don't do it li- like the others. But he did it. He moved the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Every modern president behind him said, they would and they didn't. And he did. For both of those acts. He came under attack. By the left wing in this country by the Democrats in this country. I fluid Israel when they open the the new embassy. There wasn't one single elected democrat there to celebrate not one. Joe Lieberman who obviously is out of office and Alan Dershowitz. Is not an elected official. That was it. That's how I saw. What else does this president done? He is shredded the Iran deal, which threaten the United States, and Israel and other allies, including Arab Gulf states. He was told not to do it. He was attacked by. Bob corker and others within our own party. He said, no, I'm going to do this. I'm gonna shred it. This is crazy to give the Iranians one hundred fifty billion dollars. Besides they have killed hundreds and hundreds of American troops in the Middle East. Do you know, we have democrat candidates campaigning right now saying that if they're elected they're going to reinstate the Iran Iraq, Iran nuclear deal. It's true. What else is this president done? He shut down the PLO office in DC because it's a terrorist organization. He cut us funding the Palestinian Liberation of thirty which was using funding. It's called the Taylor AC using funding to reward terrorists. They still do except now they don't get to use your tax dollars. There's a group called APEC. I'm no great fan of a pack. You wanna know why it's sort of a center center left organization. The American Israeli, whatever whatever it's a big organization. It's not the only Jewish organization. There are many of the left and the right. Two big organization and the crazies out there think they control control congress. You like Ileana, Omar the anti-semites bigot. They control congress. They control the banks. They control you understand. And typically what happens is candidates for president democrat and Republican they form a conga line. And they speak at APEC. This other support for Israel an eight-pack supports a two state solution. I don't. In a pack supports negotiation with the Palestinian regimes. I don't. And most of you don't either. So move on dot org. One of the most powerful of the progressive left organizations that controls the democrat party has announced. That the Democrats should all boycott APEC. They just announced this. And for them. Doing exactly that their schedules. You see don't allow them to go. Kamala harris. Julian Castro, Elizabeth, Warren and Bernie Sanders. Meanwhile. Ilian Omar a big anti Semite longstanding. Meanwhile, Talib another congress person. Palestinian descent, another anti-semites bigot. Alexandria. Gotta get her name. Right. She gets offended when you're done. AFC? I would argue another anti-semites they are celebrated in the democrat party. They are celebrated in the American press. They're not how to account we saw that the other week. The democrat controlled house of representatives got together put together resolution. And Omar herself voted for it declared victory and said for the first time ever the house of representatives has declared. Slama phobia. In the United States is to be rejected. There is no Slama phobia in the United States. It's a made up word by this group care, which is connected to. The democrat party. Not only moving hard left against the United States hard left against a critical ally. The president of the United States doesn't get the credit that he deserves standing up to them standing up to the world standing up for us and standing up for our ally. So I wanted to give him a kudos and salute him. We'll be right back. Six ten w TVM. I'm sure you've heard my now about the interview with former FBI deputy director, Andrew McCabe, re confessed to helping lead a silent coup against our president. Now, our president wasn't sick. They just didn't want him in office and top DOJ officials were discussing how they could forcibly remove him from office under the twenty fifth amendment. Now, if you haven't been watching Levin TV this was probably a bombshell to here. But if you've been watching my show, you know, we uncovered the scandal of the century more than two years ago. And we.

"Don't think it will take much for the Republicans to turn on Trump. Prevented all ages that I think that Trump learned as a child value, mutually assured destruction. So it makes the whole thing is what the Republican party. Afraid of. He even when he's caught he shows no sheen, right? So what makes the more scammy is what what does he know about them? So is this is this larger than, you know, look at what happened to Jeff flake and Bob corker. I mean, you know, they they they contradicted Trump. They pushed back against his his policies. I mean, they didn't you know, it wasn't until after he really started trashing them that either one of them started calling him a liar Jeff flake came right out and said it, but but that was after he had turned on them. And they decided that they had to leave the Senate. I mean is that what you're talking about? Or do you think that the Trump knows where the real bodies are buried in the in the GOP like the Reagans treason in Iran contra, for example, that kind of stuff? Yeah. And I think that that's scary. About this whole administration and never Hoboken party included. And. Fuck that. Even when he's caught he had never seen. Shame. Right. So so so you're suggesting I just want to clearly understand this. You're suggesting that the Republican party that they're not embracing him because he's popular because of his base because he's you know, he's doing a good job of having, you know, all these loyal followers that they're embracing him because they're scared to death. Yeah. He basically mutually assured destruction. Yeah. I, you know, I think it's entirely possible. I think it's it's very possible. Thank you Louise for the call. It's it's a it's a good one. And I don't disagree with you Teresa in Santa Rosa, California listening. Tune in Theresa. So what do you think intriguing question what she can take turn things around the whole world is going towards our crime syndicate running running the whole world. And Donald Trump is just the American army. But he's just a symptom problem. I agree with a lot of idiot in this country that will following him right down the drain and blackening us towards the bottom. Just happened. It the bottom yet. Got a long way out. So so are you suggesting Theresa that the thing that would cause Republicans to turn against Trump is not finding out something, but hitting the bottom, and and what do you mean by hitting the bottom economically crash? What I mean by hitting the bottom. Have eighty percent of the country starving. Literally starving a great depression. I'm dan. E the Republicans.

"Oh, yeah. Absolutely. But we're not near that. I know we're not near that yet. At what point does are servicing the debt become unsustainable? Is it nine or ten cents on the dollar? Is it twelve cents is it fourteen cents? Is it twenty cents? Is it thirty or they don't know. But you do agree that at some point it becomes unsustainable. At some point you understand. It's swamps the entire country, you do agree with that. Yes. Absolutely. Then why would you wanna get any closer to it? Well, because we need stuff we need infrastructure. We don't need to infrastructure, and this is Trump's big thing to and once he comes out with this. I want you to be prepared. I will fight him tooth and nail on this radio show every day about this bovines scatology that we've got to spend a trillion dollars on infrastructure. We don't our infrastructure is not crumbling. We have some states that have mismanaged their gas tax money, and they don't, you know, th they wanted to turn to the federal government to bail them out. What we should do is have them spend the money more intelligently? But the federal government does not need to be involved in this. The federal government does not need to be redoing LaGuardia Airport. Laguardia Airport needs to redo LaGuardia Airport, and if they need to put a dollar tax on everybody who flies in and out of LaGuardia to pay for it. And that's what they should do. But it shouldn't be everybody across the country paying to revamp LaGuardia Airport when they have neglected that airport for decades. You don't see all these other airports crumbling? So what's up with LaGuardia? Well, it's full of unions that are corrupt. That's what's up LaGuardia. It's will of politicians at a corrupt. It's full of people who mismanage money that should have gone to the upkeep of the airport. And now they wanna come grind to the federal government and Trump is playing right into their hands. We don't have it infrastructure problem. So these liberals who want to spend all this money on this that and the other instead of getting our debt under control. Have lost their collective minds. But we knew that they didn't win. So this is what we need to do. We need to make sure we're putting people in office that understand this we've made strides. We replace Bob corker. With somebody and Marsha Blackburn. And some of you may say well, March marshes light years better than Bob corker, and I don't agree with everything the marshes ever voted on. I'm sure she would never agree with everything that I've ever voted on. But she is light years had Bob corker. Bob corker was a rhino who wanted nothing more than the please morning Joe that was his litmus test and morning Joe, I find that morning Joe and make like this. I want so good riddance. People like Bob corker and Lamar Alexander bless his heart is not far behind. So when we start replacing these folks like Jeff the flake if we could actually get a real. And some of these other rhino's out there, we're making progress on the democrat on the Republican side, but time's running out. I'm telling you as far as the deficit and the debt if we still got people that want to spend all you on Stanfield Asia. We got have tricks devotion of bull. If you don't get control this deficit and dead at some point it's going to hit a tipping point that we can't come back from. And I don't know where that is. But I'm willing to say, let's don't go any further than we are list. All let the water rise any higher than it is right now, and we got all the controlling the world over it. Quick time out.

I have this vision of like a tool time Wilson next door ever saw his face over the fence or Kilroy was here cata stuff in it. Even though he he's arguing with him that that he he didn't do anything wrong. Even though there have been some Senate investigations, the problem is that when you when you leave the Senate the ethics investigations and things just stop. It's pretty much. You're gone. We'll let you go. They don't continue to explore it. And yet there's this shopping center deal that in mobile, Alabama. Did corker got involved in and put his signature on the line. No real money on the line. No assets on the line because he got they got sixty one million dollars of non-recourse financing from non-recourse means you don't have to pay it back. Yeah. So I would love to get sixty one million dollars of non-recourse financing. And by the way, subsidized and supported by tax payers taxpayers. The city. It's by the way, later, the mayor of mobile who didn't do the deal but took over right after the deal said a bad deal. We'd never do that again and has gotten some scrutiny down in the mobile area. Because it it kind of leapfrogged around some approval process there were some shady dealings going on in the whole way. It got approved in any of it corker becomes a part of this deal. And makes it bloody fortune off that deal just as he's done. In Alabama taxpayer money paying him, basically. And there's been other stories that have that have revealed that Bob corker apparently based in part upon his his status as I think he was on like, the financial affairs committee was overseeing seeing banks and reportedly shorted. Major investment shorted betting against Americans in the housing market out of there was a movie that was kinda dealt with this. And and the whole shorting of the big short. I think was the movie that the detailed what happened in that process. And you had people that were on the inside of knowing which banks were going to be shut down which banks were not because apparently Bob corker has close relationships and his oversight role with Wells Fargo Bank. Yeah. And and they were shutting down all these big major banks and lo and behold, I know this will shock you. They stopped just short of shutting down Wells Fargo. I don't know. They were shutting down the other ones, but not Wells Fargo. They didn't do anything to them because you know. Bob corker apparently had a lot of death to the out to them. And that was one of the pieces of the story is that apparently he got a release of some of his obligations on this debt or he claims to although those little twenty two million dollars. Claimed he got a release, but it's ever been produced and born of the confrontations elements of confrontation again, corker instigated this and to keep this simple. This this line of credit, this obligation to GE capital. It's Golic if you get a mortgage on your home, they file a lien, right? And and until that Leanne is released it, it's still an obligation. And there's nothing on the record that shows. There was ever a release of that obligation. Now is apparently this conversation on the plane coworkers aid Todd Womack indicates. Oh, well, we'll give you the release. And we'll see if they do. I don't I don't I don't know if they've produced a yet. Would it be like to see an ad Paglia said, you know, look, if you're gonna run for president you better produce that released by the way, interesting thing Todd Womack said the wind claimed that made a lot of money on one of these deals. He said, quote, we end quote didn't make that much money. We you're the chief of staff supposedly personal financial dealing of the Senator in the chief of staff. I'll look into I guess the other interesting aspect it's kind of a side part of the story is that Bob corker and Todd Womack worked aggressively against Marsha Blackburn in his in her Senate campaign. They were they were making calls. They were doing other behind the scenes kinds of things to try and undercut her. He desperately wanted to run for re election, but the poll numbers made it clear that just wasn't going to happen. And now apparently he's thinking about running for president. Hey, I think it would be great because there's so much for us to report on on his financial dealings. Yeah. There's more to more to come on this story. Hey, we're gonna talk more about you can jump in. Are you surprised that that Bob corker.

"One thousand KT okay with Leigh Matthews. Mark. Wayne Mullen is one of our congressmen and with all this shutdown talk. He is not doing nothing. In fact, congressman you are working on a solution to the shutdown. Yeah. We have we've been right in the middle of this fight since before we actually entered the shutdown, and then when we got shut down, and we found ourselves right now at the negotiating table trying to negotiate actually all the way up until Christmas Eve. And then things went went, quiet. And they absolutely aren't even come to the table say, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. It's just been it's it's it's been eerie, quiet. But I mean, there was a lot of things leading up to that. I'll tell you. They're a good friend of mine on opposite side, I'll Kennedy and and myself. Was working with with Lindsey Graham, and and at the time Bob corker who is no longer with us, obviously in and in congress. And you know, we made an offer were we would fund a border the border wall for national security purposes. And in return, we would give DACA. Individuals TPS individuals. Anyone that served in the military or currently served in the military with honorable discharge or Arbel service permanent status. So we had negotiated significantly on finding common ground, and there is half of the group between Chuck and Nancy accepted it and they didn't. And so they said, no. And that happened officially I guess it'd been on the twenty fourth of December and the conversations of stopped because that was the second offer to which we had made and they have made no offer. Their offer is their offer is is no zero money for the funding of the wall and a clean CR, but at the same time, Nancy and Chuck both have voted for border security and border wall and a past. I I know you've probably brought this up before. But in two thousand six Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi. Hillary Clinton Joe Biden and President Obama at that time Senator Obama all voted for the literally it was called the secure fence act which appropriated not five billion, but fifty two billion dollars for building a border wall, and it was instructed to build no less than seven hundred miles offense, which equates to about seventy four million dollars a mile to build and then I did it again in two thousand thirteen yet. They won't do it now for two hundred and fifty nine miles a wall because they don't want the president to get a victory at least that's. Political. This is a hundred percent driven political shutdown. That's all this is a political showdown. They're putting the American people and individuals that are being furloughed and being deemed essential and having to work for free. And they're they're using them as pawns in this thing, the one thing I noticed I was in DC in the in the fall and spent some time with the Senator Lankford, I did not get to see you at the time. But one of the things that overwhelmed me about being in that city. Congressman Mark Wayne Mullen traffic, the traffic in the hot weather in September. But the overwhelming the overwhelming sense of service. This is where you serve the country. And I I don't see how Schumer and Pelosi are putting a pin in that. And and neglecting to serve not only the American people, but their own districts in order to make a political end. It has nothing to do with serving the American people has to do with them retaining leadership. Yeah. That's that's that's all it is. Because if it had to do with serving American people they've already been on record twice voting for this. So in listen, they go through the same the same security briefings or even the classified security briefings for that matter that I sit through and when you go through this you get information that they have at the risk, and what's actually happening on the border, even beyond. What's what's what's released publicly? And so for them to say anything other than this is national security risk is is absolutely lying to the American people. Because we these briefings haven't changed they've got worse. They've actually got worse during the Obama administration. We're getting these same briefings. And that's why they had played voted for in two thousand thirteen. I mean, one of the very first classified briefings, I went to was on this particular issue, and that was one of the bill's passing twenty thirteen after the briefing, and now the borders even worse than it was then well, keep us up to date on the progress. Congressman Mark Wayne Mullen love hearing from you love here.

"Okay. Let's get your questions. Hi, pre Louise in San Diego. And I'm wondering. Well, I'm totally freaked out by the fact that there's no readouts from from conversations meetings with Putin. And I assume that the senators know that I mean, if the public knows the senators, no, and I don't know why they're not more freaked out than than they have been and more wary of carrying out, his bizarre agenda. Anyway, thanks, I just needed to office. Even if it was just a line. Like, Louise, thank you for your honesty and candor with his back to your freak out and with respect to your question. As to why not more senators, and particularly in the Republican side are not freaking out. I I actually think that many of them are in every once in a while you saw Senator including chairman like Bob corker reveal his internal freak out when he would accuse the White House of being adult daycare. I think Mitt Romney probably is freaking out a little bit. He wrote that up Ed, which I think some people pooh-poohed, but other people welcomed, I think Mitch McConnell is freaking out in various ways. Even though he won't say it publicly he himself separate and apart from his concerns about how chaotic the White House's. He was fully humiliated by the president when he had a vote that got unanimous approval on a budget, even without funding for the wall. And then the president about face. So I think it's the case. And it's a theme we've been talking about week after week after. A week on the podcast that there's a lot of people who have problems with how Trump operates there are a lot of people who are really concerned about the Trump Putin relationship. The thing is talking about with the meetings and the readout are the series of discussions that Donald Trump and Latimer. Putin had in various cities, including Helsinki and Hamburg that the Washington Post has reported about suggesting that Trump is trying really really really hard to prevent the substance of those conversations from becoming no not just to the public. But also, even to the relevant internal high level White House staff, including the national security personnel, in some cases, the secretary of state and department of state, and that has a lot of people very concerned. It's got members of the house on the democratic side. So concerned they are considering as you may have seen in the news in the Washington Post article doing something fairly extraordinary issuing a subpoena to one of the interpreters who in at least a couple of instances was the only witness to the conversation between Trump and Putin. That would be an extraordinary measure. Later. But the problem with a lot of the things that Trump does is that it sometimes calls for extrordinary measures to try to undo the damage in make sure the information is known. I personally think it's a very serious step in a bad precedent to set going forward to the presence interpreter. But in a circumstance in which some people have ridden, including David from in a good article in the Atlantic in the last week, it may be a necessary step to take. So I appreciate your interest your frustration. Look, we all get frustrated the other night, I sent a tweet out when I saw the report that Donald Trump apparently has privately expressed great interest in withdrawing from NATO, and in my frustration, given the backdrop here, I sent out a, you know, somewhat ill-considered tweet where I said, you know, if this is true, Donald Trump should come forward state publicly his intent to withdraw from NATO. So he can be impeached and convicted by the congress to which a lot of people responded correctly, well, differences of opinion over policy are not a basis. Impeachment. And that is true. This is the problem with Twitter with two hundred eighty characters. Of course, that's correct. In part. I was showing the kind of frustration that I wish Republican senators show more of that you suggested in your call, but I will say that may be true the policy differences are not a basis for impeachment. But that depends on why one suggests they wanna withdraw from NATO and against the backdrop of the president of the.

"A beyond constitutional crisis, particularly because there was a great segment that Chris Wallace on Fox News did where he interviewed this Sunday interviewed Sarah Sanders, who was claiming that the reform thousand terrorists, you know, stopped at the border coming in through Mexico, and then Wallace at Walker through that number, and what that meant is that there were four thousand people who were from countries in which you know, extra vetting is designated for people coming through the border. So there is an enormous amount of lying about you know, who is crossing the southern border. What types of people they are. And then to use that kind of misimpression or that misinformation to actually say, I'm just going to do this is it's troubling. I mean, this is like I think it puts Trump in the category of you know, novices jumping ahead a little bit of Andrew Jackson being told by the supreme court that no actually the Cherokee have a treaty, and they get to stay. And then he just does what he does. Anyway, I mean, it would set the ground for that type of stuff and it would. Be appalling to say that congress can actually override presidential declarations of emergency. That was something that was put in after Nixon, you know, if it happens. Well, you know, what we'll know who the real kind of Americans in the smaller, Republicans are note that Trump's trade war that tariffs have been largely justified on completely or shit national security grounds, and which. Is said that's ridiculous. Nobody in congress. No Republicans in congress have made any effort to actually do anything. That's not true. That's not true. That's not true Republicans. I believe is. Bob corker these Bob corker gave a speech about it. But there is a a Bill of resolution. I think even put forward by, you know, Mike Lee or some damn Mormon out there saying that actually let's have a let's give the senate's an upper down vote on when the president invokes national security on a tariff because that seems kind of crazy, and let's do it and famously this is what triggered a Bob corker poke the bear speech where I he pointed out that this resolution will never get voted on this amendments for this thing will never get voter on because we don't vote on amendments anymore. The United States Senate why because Mitch McConnell is afraid to poke the bear. Don't wanna get anything in front of Donald Trump's knows. This actually comes up in the government. I retract my nobody has attempted anything. But they they did that knowing that Mitch McConnell was not gonna that. He was actually what is it that we know he's afraid to what poke the bear. Thank you. I have virtually all tariffs all all kinds of tariffs in reprisal of things have in the past twenty or thirty years have been invoked under the national security claim, which is Peter points out is horse shit..

I wanna prediction is it Millkom news running for lost his mind or what like what what is your prediction? I will make I will meet one that that was crazy online Mitt Romney per Mitt Romney, you know, I think that the prize, right? He's like they try vaguely trying to Romney. Well, there's always there's always what he says. And as always why he's saying it and right never the same. Explain it to the people that I don't know. Look, I don't wanna be on the one hand. I am very sick of Republicans even Republicans with some conscience speaking out against Trump without using their power effectively to stop him. That's what I think you could say about Ben SaaS. That's what you could say about Jeff flake. That's why you could say about Bob corker and many others. They were never willing to truly use their power centers. It's almost it's almost as if that I think one of the kind of surreal aspects of our current. Political environment. Is there is the sense that people are afraid of power as if they don't really deserve it. And don't really have it. When all you have to do this like Mark second. But I talked about that with him. Yeah. She's away power that he has. There's this kind of sense that oh powers for for history's me. Now, you're in it. This is the fight. This is the moment you have it. You're in the fight you either use it or you lose it. And they all chose not to use it the thing. What what Romney did? That is distinct is he set down a marker before he took office in a way, he did not have to. And I think that there is value to that. Now, I'm very interested to see if he falls through with it. And now now or else these at dinner at the White House sure, and you know, mitt Romney's track record is not one in which you find political courage on display and keep in mind. He is part of the reason Donald Trump was elevated. He accepted us his endorsement, even though he was birther etcetera etcetera etcetera, I don't progression for meeting with him at that creepy Trump International dinner because that was that that I think especially right, then it's like, okay, lots of people did a lot of people did take. A shop. I don't I actually don't begrudge him that but his behavior before and since has not been that exemplary he accepted Donald Trump's endorsement, he's played his cards. I think very politically. But let's see what he does the thing that makes me least enthusiastic as he said that a classic line, which is I will support Donald Trump's policies when I agree with them. And I will not support them when I don't like that's the standard hold on a second. Well, look. There there. I had a friend and sometimes he brought me dinner and a food. I like and sometimes he still use my vacuum cleaner. Without permission. I dunno making up a scenario. That'd be like, you know, what thank you for being the dinner. It bothers me that use the vacuum cleaner. But you're still my friend. I was support you when you support me, and I will go or different ways. But if I had a friend who did nice things every once in a while. But then also randomly punch people on the street or committed violence or set cars on fire. I wouldn't be this thing of like now, obviously, I support my friend when he does nice things, but I don't support him. When he didn't know you hold on your brick. Yeah. Yeah. So it's idea that like, you know, Donald Trump they wanna make choices they won't not making choices as what they won't do. Put the things you care about on the line to stop Donald Trump. It's if you're going to go along with him when you support the judges you like our policies you like not when he doesn't you're actually actually you're actually refusing to use the leverage you have. That's what. Bob corker refused. Did. That's what that's what flake. Did. You're not using your lovers. And so, you know, Mitt Romney us..

"He's going to step forward. Right at this moment and try to unite the country and make character an issue. This is a salvo across the. How of this White House and to the Republican party saying, yes, you've embraced President Trump? But is it really worth the cost and does character directly affect policies. Kind of. I'm trying to get at. It's a big debate. In politics, always has been I mean, we've had presidents before who've had bad reputations presidents who've had huge scandal. This was an issue with President Clinton when he had his personal troubles. Did it really matter? Did character matter if you're if you have a president who's popular who's able to do stuff with Newt Gingrich like Clinton was does character matter. It's always been something that has hovered over the presidency is the presidency about policy, or is it about representing the country in a certain way. And that's always the tension. And this tension again is being exacerbated by Mitt Romney Hussein character needs to come to the fore more than it is now now why is mitt Romney's choice to speak out. Why does that feel different than say? Bob corker or Jeff flake doing. So. Because Romney is someone who is considered by many Republican donors and Republican strategists as someone who could run for president in twenty twenty. Now Romney said this week he's not trying to mount a campaign for president. But what really matters with this Ahmed as well is that there is a conversation but note beneath the surface to be sure for the most part. But there is a conversation that's growing in Republican ranks should President Trump have a primary challenge, Ohio.

"I got a question. During the eight years of the Obama administration. Who was the democrat Mitt Romney? Who's a democrat Jeff flake? Who the democrat? Bob corker. Who's a democrat? Maxine waters. Who? No democrat. Headed objection to ObamaCare. No democrat had an objection to the bird dog. Swap deal the deserter in exchange for what was it five. Taliban detainees and get more. I think. Four of them have returned to the fight. There was no opposition to the stimulus plan. There was no opposition to the Iran deal. There was no opposition to pulling all the troops out of Iraq. There wasn't a single member of Obama's party. There was a vocal critic the way Jeff flake. Bob corker Mitt Romney have been. Despite radical policies that he and acted. The President Trump has to deal with. Mitt romney. Had to deal with Jeff flake had to deal with the Bob corker. Who's Republican Maxine Waters during the Obama years who who would have public in the house? That was hostile vocal and nasty Maxine Waters who was that person. Another question. After shooting. The Democrats do cry for more gun control legislation or commonsense gun laws. Accept it. Appears when Leo alien kills a common. Apparently to ask for an illegal alien got a gun is to also ask the question why? So he legal in here in the first place. President Trump said there's a reason why politicians and the wealthy build walls around their own homes, bro problem, but the southern border is a very very high highly used placed by people that do human trafficking. How could it get worse than that? Is a reason why politicians and wealthy people build walls around their houses of their Cup out. President Obama recently built a wall around his compound as a reason for it. And I don't blame wherein a shutdown because Democrats refused to fund the border security, and he said this about the Vatican. When they say, the wolves immoral. Well, then you gotta do something about the Vatican. The Vatican has the biggest wall of the mall, and he's President Trump again today. So this meeting was set up a long time ago. It just came at a very opportune time, and I thought we were all sitting in the Oval Office working on different plans in different ways of stopping the problems that we have in our country and other countries have problems, but nobody like ours. So the economy makes it even more. So the economy is bringing people in because we're doing so well with the economy. Unemployment is now three point seven percent. And that's among the lowest we've ever had lowest in fifty years and among certain groups into lowest historically, so I just appreciate them being here. I said, let's go out see the press. You can tell them about the importance of the wall. They basically said, and I think I can take the word basically out without a wall. You cannot have border security when we come back. Trump also rip the Arctic. What he called idiotic immigration laws.

They didn't go into all fifty or hundred or how ever many are gonna wind up running. They just listed the top ten here.

Beto O'Rourke Robert Francis or Bob corker, right number two would be Bernie Sanders who's really not even a democrat. He's a socialist. I guess they're synonymous. Now, it's they're pretty much the same thing because the socialist party has taken over the democrat party. So they don't even care anymore. The socialists are taking over the party, no longer a racist slur to call a democratic socialist, nationalist compliment. I love it now because he's just got to keep up with stuff. Former vice president Joe Biden, number three. Now, I think Biden's got a better chance than Sanders Biden has to be number one in this list, the guys leading the polls trae points. Yeah. Now, this is the point again, let's go back to you know, just a few years ago. This is the same situation that happened with Donald Trump. Everyone was like that guy doesn't really have a chance and he's leading by twenty points and just kept leading by twenty. And I can't remember thinking someone's gotta come up here and challenging Martha. No, no, he's another win. He's gonna win. And I think there's a chance that this happens. We biden. And this kind of interesting because the hill points out, Biden leads almost all opinion polls at this stage, and how you rate his chances depends largely on how you how much you think. That matters. Why think it matters quite a bit as you just pointed out with Trump it mattered a lot. I mean, we kept saying he's gonna fade eventually. Nope. No. He didn't he didn't. And I think part of this is I mean name recognition. There's nobody on the federal has not name close this penetrates. Right. Right. Who's third? But I mean when you call by name recognition for the average person who isn't listening to talk radio who isn't obsessed with CNN on the left or MSNBC better. Roy is a blip on their radar. If they've heard he's at all, that's very Biden was vice president of the United States for eight years that they remember fondly. Yeah. You know, that is you have to you have the fact that it's a big deal. Now. I don't even I'm not one hundred percent. Sure. He's going to run though, does seem that way seems likely seems likely, but you see these little. Cliques forming Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders are going to have a tough time coexisting they're gonna have a tough time because they're going to battle it out for the same voters. I think the same thing happened with like, you know, Joe Biden Sherrod Brown or one of these other more moderate candidates. He's that's the place. He's gonna take on the common sense democrat. That's what he's gonna try. It's gonna be tough to win a primary with that. I think that is better a rock will say, I'm hold us. Go for it. Right. Elizabeth go for it. I think so. Yeah, they'll built be the socialist candidate. And so will Sanders, and then and then in comparison vinyl, really moderate compared to them, and that might help them lot. It's also scary for the general because if I if if Biden is able to somehow win that primary coming off as relatively sensible again that's not easy for Joe. No. But if he's able to pull that one off it's going to fool, again, a lot of people who aren't focused on his actual positions are going to think. Well, he's more. He's more moderate. He's the one in the middle, and I can deal with that. And as we. Mentioned he had thirty percent support in the CNN poll last month and number two was Sanders at fourteen so more than he more than doubled. The second-place guy. Beto was back in third at eleven percent. And then nine percent in another poll, but Biden far and away leading the opinion polls at number four. They have Kamala Harris now, I I don't know that she has that much of a shot either. I'm a little more bullish on Kamala Harris than let's say an Elizabeth Warren. Yeah. Probably a better chance of Warren. Not as good as by Nouri made even better. I think you're right. I mean, there's there's obviously a place for the Democrats who there's some argument among Democrats to take someone who's different. Yeah. Like, they, you know, Biden and Beto are are an, and I know this is shocking because his name is. But these are just boring white, dude. Yeah. You're talking about a medal award, right? Guy. Bob Frank Aurora. Yes. And you know, this is the this is the exact thing that they say the Republicans do right, which is take the the some white guy, you know, and throw him out there. And that's okay. Well, Kamala Harris, I think is gonna come at this from the opposite perspective and say women and say, you know, all sorts of different in x y and z ways and make sure she'll have an identity politics argument. And she's not as incompetent as Elizabeth Warren or are stilted, or you know, again like people keep saying photogenic. Yes. Yeah. Yeah. She's a prosecutor. So she's like relatively she's not Cory Booker. If you saw her in court Baker, they both did things that were wrong during the cavenaugh stuff. But Cory Booker looked like an idiot looks like a buffoon, right? While her points were just as bad as his points. She came off as much more credible. And so she I think she's more dangerous to not only win the nomination. But also when the election, then someone like Elizabeth Warren or another example of this. She can't run, obviously, the Alexandria Cossio Cortez. The Republicans if they have a choice between Kamala Harris and Cossio Cortez defined the Democratic Party. They Salvi over Cossio Cortez because she doesn't know what she's talking about. She's an outlier she she'll say, she's a socialist. Like those things are things Republicans desire in an opposition. Right. Where Kamala Harris is she'll have the same policies as a causE' oh Cortez, but she's not going to describe in the same way or and she might also know how the government functions which is another positive in her favor. That's very true. So we get all the way down to number five before we get to Elizabeth Warren on this particular list fifth, according to the hill. And then you mentioned Sherrod Brown. The Senator from all Ohio, and as you said, he won his Senate reelection by was it nine points over over the replacement measure, we're tired like, you know, wins above replacement invasive like it's like that. Desk performance among all Democrats. And he he won his Senate reelection race in a state Trump carried by eight points over.

"bob corker" Discussed on WCBM 680 AM

"Don't don't think they don't the Turks have a very high opinion of their importance to the to the mid east into the Mediterranean basin. But Lindsey Graham and Bob corker raises another concern here. And it's about Turkey play click with Iran's gonna be really happy, and ISIS folks have got a shot in the arm in Turkey is licking their chops. If you're an American who believes that we need to keep the war over there. Not here bad day for you. I think we're all just in shock that we would leave the hanging the cards and how there's who've been doing what they've done to leave them to basically Assad and to Turkey. Now, I have a degree of a particular degree of respect and even some nostalgia for my time with the Kurds. And and I know that the Kurdish people have been allies to the US in Iraq. And now in Syria when we really needed allies on the ground in the region, and the Kurds will fight bravely. The Kurds have been operating a civilized sector of Iraq, even through the worst parts of the insurgency. I mean, you could go to Kurdistan, which is not officially a place. But it might as well be you spend time in places like Erbil or Suleimaniya, and you might as well. I mean, the church would like because you might as well be in Turkey in terms of safety and the overall feeling of the place, and that's a testament to the Kurdish people they've been very strong counterterrorism allies with with us. They've been doing. A lot for us for a very long time. And I think we have a debt of honour to the Kurdish people and the Turks hate the Kurds this stretches back for many decades. It's a long standing ethnic and cultural conflict, and there's been a Turkish separatist Kurdish separatist movement in southern Turkey. That's claimed many thousands of lives over the over decades fighting ends on the you know, the PK they're kind of a Marxist separatist group, and the Turks are just get apoplectic about them. They say they're terrorists just like any other terrorist group. Meanwhile, the militia that we're fighting with on the ground in Syria. The Turks say, it is essentially this this Turkish the Turkish I'm sorry Kurdish terrorist group, we say, no that's not fair and these guys are doing great fighting against the Islamic state. So there is this concern that the Turks if we don't have US troops there. The Turks are just gonna come in and have a real incursion and kill a lot of our Kurdish friends on the ground, and I find that unacceptable. But if we don't have US troops there because here's the thing. The Turks launch an airstrike at a at a US Kurdish base in Syria, and they kill some of our people. They have a massive problem on their hands. And they know that and you know, the next time a Turkish plane flies over Syrian sky. It's it's probably not gonna let you say. It's not gonna land as planned. So that's you know, that's the bulwark. That's the the safety measure that's in place. Therefore criticial is if we pull out US troops. Now. The now the Turks all of a sudden might say, you know, what? Yeah. America's gonna complain about it. But as long as we don't kill any of their people on the ground, and we're just killing Kurds. That's our problem. We care about it more air to one is a very unsteady ally. So so I understand that concern, and I'm very sympathetic to that concern because I think that we show we show allies one because of honor, but also because of the optics of it the rest of our allies in the region around the world, how we treat them matters. The what we do to our allies real allies that are doing fighting. They're taking losses. Fighting side by side with our people. It matters how we treat them show that that that's that's that's a sticky issue. That's a complicating factor in this whole Syria withdrawal issue, and then you've got. Rubio and Graham who are just completely. Utterly opposed to this and say, it's a it's a horrible idea. Play. I believe it is a catastrophic mistake..

U.S. senators conclude the Saudi crown prince ordered journalist’s killing

"To do with the death of journalist Jamal kashogi. In fact, Senator Lindsey Graham yesterday said there wasn't a smoking gun. There's a smoking saw. But that almost directly contradicts what the president had been saying. Yeah, that's right. A pretty. A remarkable moment on Capitol Hill yesterday. CIA briefing for select group of senators with director Gina apple after weeks really of them demanding answers from the administration. A what we know about involvement of Saudi Crown prince Mohammad bin soman in this murder plot. They finally got some answers that small group of senators, and when they walked out of the briefing, they seem to be more furious than they were going into it. And then talking about just Democrats as you said Republicans allies of the president like Lindsey Graham saying that you'd have to be willfully blind to not come to the conclusion that NBS with intricately involved in this plot as you said that directly contradicts not the president. But his top advisors, Mike Pompeo secretary of state teams Mattis the Defense Secretary, and it really set a showdown between congress and the administration over what to do next with a relationship in Saudi Arabia. Well, before we even get into that going back to Mike Pompeo when he came out last week and made a statement or lack thereof. There was not. Steve that was made when it wasn't the CIA director Gina hospital a lot of people scratch their heads like, hey, wait a minute. Which isn't she? The beep be the one who's giving us all the information shouldn't her department be the one who's giving us this in. And it was just strange that. She wasn't the lead on that that it was Pompeii. Oh, and then he was so sort of cagey about everything. Yeah. Exactly. And then there were some reports at the White House should actually held Gina hassle back from going to deny that. Official beer telling me that hassle chose not to go, and it could be a little bit of both ending hassle. Probably didn't wanna be played off of the president. You know, she obviously would stick to what the intelligence agency has has compiled is and that could be seen two country country for President Trump has said publicly, and instead the had this class by briefing with Mike Pompeo and James Mattis for all one hundred senators, but but they last so unsatisfied that it builds up pressure on the administration over the last couple of days to do something to you know, really win back those Republicans like Bob corker in Lindsey Graham, and that's what led to the briefing yesterday. But as you said, they all laughed even more angry than before. So this saga will continue Connor to what are you do? So they're mad. All right, fine. Everybody's upset. Everybody's upset that it seems that the president isn't making full acknowledgement that the Saudi Crown prince had something to do with this. Everybody's upset on both sides fine. But from a geopolitical standpoint, you also have to wonder is it does it matter though. Even if the president did is it it doesn't make him look better to say, hey, crown prince, I know you had something to do with it. You know, the evidence is right here in black and white. I know you did. But I'm going to have to plug my nose on this one and just move on. Because I know it's the right thing to do when it could be comes to relations would that be enough to satisfy these senators on both sides who are so angry about this investigation. I think that had been the administration's reaction from the start that we wouldn't be in this position. And it could have been enough because I think a lot of those Republicans know that their relationship with Saudi Arabia is so important, and it is especially vital to the president's national security strategy his foreign policy they rely on the Saudis to counter Iran's throughout the Middle East. So if that was if that was the reaction right away fine. I think you know, that people could put their noses and go along especially because the Saudis have said consistently NBS, the crown prince is not going anywhere. And so they I think would learn to deal with it in a way if they hadn't felt so betrayed and so stone wall by the administration and by the Saudis, but but from the beginning the Saudis have have lied covered up their involvement. And then they admitted that there, you know, Saudi officials were responsible, but they said it was an accident. And then they admitted it wasn't an accident. It was a rogue operation. The the fact that they have continued to live threat. It has made it very hard now for these Senate Republicans to not want to go after them. But you're right broader broader terms in the region, if the US pol- support from the Saudis, they're left hung to dry and a lot of different places. We do need Saudi Arabia for a couple of different things and other partners. Other countries will be really willing to take on that partnership. Instead you saw Ladimir Putin over the weekend at the g twenty high fiving was NBS while President Trump declined to meet with. Yeah. That you don't want somebody else to just slide in there. So it's yeah. It's keep your your enemies close kind of thing, you know, or your friends. I'm screaming that went out. But you know, what? I mean. But yeah, you can't you can't goof up this relationship. No matter how ugly it is. But at the same time, they're just has to be a way to sort of eased everybody because everybody is upset that they feel like we're either covering up or you know, that the president is either covering something up or lying about it. Or whatever it may be if you were just to be more forthcoming about the details of the investigation and say, I don't like it. But here's the way it is. And then move forward that might help. We'll speaking of moving forward when you were mentioning Mike Pompeo. He's also in headlines for another reason, he says the US is

Think is worse I think you gotta go in with some. Degree of optimism you have. To be realistic you have to know that they're certain things that are never going to change with the franchise and. This and that but I think, as I've said you've could look at some of the potential positives and get a degree. Of optimism Lisa's how do I think it sucks especially doing. This every day if I gotta go, in, with like oh it's going to be terrible incident that. That's no good I. Can't do it it's not good. For my life seven four nine seven thousand. Eight hundred pounds seven hundred on AT and t. your thoughts on the, season coming up Sheila. Your first step what? Are you thinking my take on the Bengals I I'm going to go at thirteen and three this year thirty three. Thirteen, and thirty Andy Dalton all run run and more touchdown and he's ever had. In a season Well what was? A two thousand fifteen was the stats in front of me that was arguably his his best season he played very. Well, and, look a lot of last year, he was looking at getting killed right And so he was gun shy and look everyone knows it's no secret he's not a guy that's going to lift the rest of, the team on his shoulders and succeed in, spite of them he needs a lot of things working well and when a lot when the lines going well. Providing them time and there's a. Lot of weapons around him he can be a sufficient quarterback and I hope. That happens this year absolutely but I I. Think Marvin Lewis I think he's mingle tied Jonathan Marvin Lewis came in and it was like he was just. Bingo-type any control or his at all All right well Sheila the thirteen and three I got about Some money up I'll bet you. On that. One a Greg How. Are you, feeling, about the Bengals I feel pretty good about I mean there's you know what they showed, a lot of promise last year they make some great mood and then. We got the offensive line coach. From Dallas Greg I'm, sorry to. Interrupt, you but. The point you. Just made the offensive line coach there's people around. That team that are saying they tell me this. Was the best free agent acquisition they had. This whole forget the players. Forget cordy Glenn forget okay Billy price. That's all good but this is the most impactful off season, change this club is made and I couldn't agree more I was never a fan of. Of Alexander I thought he was he? He didn't teach the things.
