Rep. Guy Reschenthaler Makes His Pitch for Bringing the RNC to Pittsburgh in 2024

"Make your pitch for Pittsburgh 2024. Oh, well, yeah, so you pitched me as one of the four. Yeah, one of the four cities being considered for the Republican National Convention. And look, it's incredibly important that we go to a swing state such as Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh in particular, southwestern Pennsylvania. But there's also no better example of the shift you've seen in that party from the Bush Cheney errors to the president Trump era because in Pittsburgh, especially southwestern Pennsylvania, you've had these blue collar workers that have jumped to the Republican Party in droves. All four of the surrounding counties in the southwest corner Pittsburgh have gone from Democrat controlled counties to Republican controlled counties. That's very important. So for their RNC to come to Pittsburgh, what used to be the center of manufacture at least steel manufacturing in the United States? To what is now the shift in that example of the shift in the party from the old school Republicans to the Trump Republicans. It was in a large message to the rest of the nation. And I think it would drive out turnout in Pennsylvania, which is going to be incredibly important, moving forward to win Pennsylvania. So that's my pitch plus, it's just a beautiful, livable city, livable area. Look, I've been all over. I've been all over the world. I've been all over the United States. There's no place that's more beautiful than western Pennsylvania, no place where the people are

"We're talking to author kimberly johnson. She's hosted the start me up podcast and she wrote a great book called payton's choice. I recommend everybody needs to read it before the break. Kimberly we were talking a little bit about accountability and we have to get this right and that was the sentiment that a lot of these that the the officers testifying today in front of the select committee on the insurrection. We're really trying to push. Push across the you know we were. We were defending democracy that day and that end. They said they would do it again. And i want you to talk a little bit more about the about the accountability piece. Because that's sort of why. I had mentioned earlier. That if the department of justice decides not to charge the former president with obstruction of justice or pursue those charges which. They don't have to do any work. Muller did all the fucking work he listed how the elements were met. I mean it's perfect. It's all laid out for you like a. It's it's a gift that somebody said to me. Yeah we'll you know. The mirror garland might decide not to because new york's going to get him you know and that's the wrong answer that's like people saying we shouldn't impeach the president because it'll never make it through the senate we have to do this. We will be derelict in our duty. If we do not absolutely you can go back to the the crimes of the bush administration and you know they did waterboarding torture and obama chose not to go after them for that on some level. I can understand the logic if you're dealing with parties that are you know obeying the constitution and trying to keep democracy going which i mean. Okay the bush cheney rove all those people they were criminals. they're not like trump. they were quieter and they weren't. They weren't stomping stomping all over democracy in the way that did it. But you know. I saw christie's talking about this and he was saying he believed in. I believe this to that. Obama should have held the obama administration. I should say the doj should have held the bush administration accountable for war crimes. And i think the idea on this is that if we do it then. They're going to do it. Then it's going to be never ending in. Yeah that totally makes sense. Like don't wanna get into that war but we are now past the point. And i think we were then. Maybe it was hard for obama to see it and i'm and i'm not saying that i saw it but right now i think we're at a place. Where if we lose if democrats lose twenty twenty two and twenty twenty four we lose our democracy and then we're just going. It doesn't matter. If every single democrat completely obeyed the law and did everything a hundred percent legally right and they will go to jail. We are we are in a situation. Now where okay in the past we. We missed some we should have. Maybe held them accountable for accountable for war crimes. Because of what you just said. I mean it's just the it's what it looks like. It's what's right but what we should do for history sake Now if we don't do it I think were totally screwing ourselves. Because guarantee you if it's just like everybody says if they're going to say the russians at the republicans have control. Now they would. They would do what they wanted to do with the filibuster so we are. I don't know. I don't know what the democrats but I know that it's not. All of them are really trying. And there's a few people that are holding it up and it's just it's but i think the accountability is important for history and it's important because the american people want to see it. I mean when you're on political twitter all day like i am. That's what we want to see. I know there's not paying attention. But there's a whole hell of a lot of people who are and you know. I mean i know watching conservatives who were maybe not full on anti-trumpers but when they saw what happened at the capitol they were really discussed it so yeah. Accountability is pretty much everything. Yeah and you know who else is watching in. Who else is paying. Attention is the next at spot who would be smarter and swifter probably than the last one that we had to fail to hold accountable. And i i'm with you. I think obama should have held bush accountable because that sent the wrong message and it led to where we are now part of a not not fully but right you know when when when a president can say they'll never come after me or i can just delayed in the courts for two years until it's moot or they don't hold past presidents accountable and they don't indict sitting presidents so i can do whatever the fuck i want. Yeah that's the message. That you that that this doj will send if they don't get it right this time so we'll be watching for that mo brooks decision because i think it's extremely yeah. It's going to tell us a lot about yeah about where things are going. The jim carroll case is also absolutely ridiculous. Don't get me wrong. I don't want people to think that. I'm not one hundred percent against that bullshit decision either and also holding back the second half of the bar. Two thousand nineteen memo. Yes oh my god yes. That was a week ass argument and i hope it loses in court. I'm anne upsetting because you you know. You're a citizen. Oh you pay your taxes and you do what you're supposed to do and we're also fortunate to live in a country like this. I mean that's going back to living in russia. That was that was when i understood the word patriot. I understood that fully. Because i and i had it used to be my pin tweet but it doesn't anymore living there. It you know. In communist russia felt like living in prison with privileges. So you know. I it was. There was so much about it. That was kind of. I mean there's beauty. Obviously there are some beauty and really it dot. Beauty was for the wealthy What the common person experienced in russia the common russian was awful. It was you know it was terrible. It was depressing. And like i said you were made to feel like a criminal when you were walking down this. I was a twelve year old gig with these like thick glasses. And i was full on geek and these militiamen would stare at me. As if i had secrets from you know the worst their worst enemy in fact i have a little funny story just to sidetrack but my girlfriend. Her father was a diplomat so she lived in the american. This is just how out there. She lived in the american embassy and there was this entrance into the embassy that you could drive through and it was like this little tunnel so in front of the tunnel were to russian guards and my goal in life. When i would stay with my girlfriend was to torture was guards and i would throw exit them and i would mess with them so my girlfriend and i decided we were going to score around with them. And we got a couple of magazines. Just tip you know. Mag like Time magazine or whatever it.

Trump to attend GOP's spring donor retreat

"Trump is scheduled to speak at the cpac conference on sunday while americans go about living their lives. Political reports trump is expected to attend the rnc upcoming spring donor. Retreat in april quote. The rnc's donor. Retreats are a prime stop for future presidential candidates who use the events to establish relationships with wait for it. Major contributors Back with us tonight. Abc veteran washington journalists and associate editor and columnist over a real clear politics and matthew. Dowd he is the founder of country over party. We should point out. He is a texan. Who has a new appreciation for a hot shower. Since the cold dark outage of late and in the past matthew was chief strategist for the bush. Cheney presidential effort Back in oh four Welcome to you both. Ab you right with your usual candor and clarity quote just six weeks. After a deadly insurrection against the us government republicans are past their horror and hopping eagerly back on the trump train. The new twenty twenty one ticket price. They must buy into his big lie. That brings us to the question a. b. if trump is the banner under which they all must run under which they all must try to raise money he lost. How can that be a winning strategy. Whatever he says goes so you saw that. Nothing made it more clear than the house. Gop whip steve scalise going on tv. The sunday after his visit mar-a-lago where apparently they just talked about their families and how chill and relaxed. The president has been in his post presidency period at his resort and he just could not bring himself to say that this was a free and fair election. He said yes. Legitimately biden one when he was pressed by jonathan karl of abc news because elector said that on december fourteenth basically. He said a lot of sing. Swing states just didn't follow their own state laws and a lot of people are very concerned so what you do is instead of spreading the big lie. You never defy trump. You never disavow it and you never spell it you sit and you never discuss. How pernicious and dangerous. It is liz cheney and adam her and others have you just sort of try to circle around it because quote your constituents buy into it. And that's what's gonna keep you in trump's orbit if you want to keep your job in twenty twenty two. Matt voters have a funny way of kind of market testing ideas on their own and figuring out what. And what's gonna fly. How is this gonna fly especially in republican tightly contested suburban races two years from now. Well i think it does well in republican primaries. So i think that's the issue and that's the real problem for the republicans right now. They know that. Donald trump tests eighty eighty five percent popularity among the voters at will participate in republican primaries even in republican primaries in purple states or in suburban districts. That are swing districts. The problem is every time they venture into capturing that republican primary voth it more and more offense the people in the general election so it gets okay in a red state or deep red district to do that but when you start to try to win in suburban areas around houston suburban areas around dallas suburban areas in michigan suburban areas in california. It becomes exceedingly problematic. An i think that's the problem there in though it doesn't seem like they're in any way trying to confront that general election problem that they just keep pushing that often it's somehow they think is going to solve itself. It's almost as if they're going through this primary. They did in two thousand fifteen in twenty sixteen where they thought that donald trump problem would salve itself or he would peter out or nobody would deal within or somebody else would handle it and they didn't have to and then what they ended up having donald trump the republican nominee and then donald trump the republican president and now donald trump the republican president. So i do think it's his party. I don't think there's any question anymore that it's donald. The drill pay party is now the trump party and everything that donald trump does from town to what he cares about to. The conspiracy pushes is the republican party.

"Just a few of their Pieties, and that can't be done in Washington. Whoever does that must be destroyed. And so the CIA and the deep state operative became heroes of the liberal left the people who support the Democratic Party there and now in a full union with the neo Cons the Bush Cheney operatives the CIA Silicon Valley in Wall Street that is the Union of power, along with mainstream media outlets that are fully behind the Democratic Party, which is likely to at least take over. One branch of government, if not all of them with the coming election, And that is a very alarming proposition because their authoritarian they believe in censorship, and they believe in suppression of information that exposes them in any kind of a critical life. She's Glenn. I wonder if he ever looks around at himself on Tucker Carlson. Them asked himself. What am I doing here? How did they end up here? Remember when he was working with Snowden? They did a very careful job of vetting all that information they worked it through. I think it was the guardian in London, and I can't prove it was watching a poster of The New York Times. So he's always worked with an editor to make sure that you could vet whatever was going Teo get released, and now he's gotten so he worked with Julian. He is a bit like Julian Assange changed to me, sort of brilliant, but also kind of Full of himself has this aggrandizement is this big idea about who he is? A son was printed Did all the stuff with Chelsea Manning and a bit with this too? It was like, OK. Yeah, Because this is we don't want any kind of Ah, rules of regulations. Then you realized if you don't have any rules and regulations for how what? What gets on wiki leaks. You could easily be be manipulated and he started getting stuff from From Russia, actually, and he started putting up all the stuff because I don't know we don't have any kind of controls. It's whatever you want to, and then he could be used. That's the concern here, so I just wanted because we've heard a lot from Green Valley just went from the editors themselves. They just said that you know, most of his accusations are not true. They didn't ask him to remove all sections critical of Joe Biden. He was asked to support his claims and innuendo about corrupt actions by Joe Biden with evidence that's what he objected. What he accuses us. When he gives us a political bias. It was he was attempting to recycle a political campaigns, dubious claims and launder them as journalism. That's the issue is when your public and he could still publish the stuff if intercept has some integrity, and they all claim that you know, they operate.

"It was you two FBI agents. What happened? Then with the interrogation? Well, one that happened. They basically what? I was told that Director Tenet was basically hitting the table and say why CTC is not there. I want them to be there. CTC is his people to counterterrorism center, right. The counterterrorism center and They came, Um maybe I think almost 10 days after after we get out was a beta. And they had a different plan. They had a contractor with them. The contractors you no idea ofthe interrogation is very different than what we were doing. His idea is to have one person deal with abuse of ADA. That person has observe. Ada has to see that person has his own God. So he basically determined if he lives or die if he's comfortable or not. Hey, and we were, you know, shocked with all the things that never happened before. We know what's going on. Are you familiar with Islamic extremists? Are you familiar with Al Qaeda, He said. I don't have to be familiar with any of the things I'm unfamiliar with the human nature. So we had to give up booze, a beta to the person who's going to supposed to be his God. And we basically we were told that we would never see always obeyed again a couple of days later. They had to bring us back in because all the information have been stopped. And people in in in the U. S government were asking What happened? What? Why? All of a sudden? No information is being transmitted. Um, so they brought us back end? Well, that's because they had they. They had, in fact, begun sleep deprivation and forced nudity, things right and and he refused to cooperate anymore. And he refused to cooperate. He was confused about what's going on, because what happened is they come in and they say, Tell me what I want to know. And he said, What do you want to know? And then the person walk out of the room. So it's kind of like this is not whole interrogation is work. That was some sort of experimentation that actually stopped the flow of information. And these facts that he didn't cooperate and they had to bring us back Wass redacted and actually by redacting it. They unintentionally helped the truth. Because you don't redact lies on national security grounds. What you re dock is facts, and now the people can read the facts. About the alleged efficacy off torture, often his interrogation techniques and how we actually get information that President Bush Cheney on a lot of other people claimed we get because of it. Right? And we should say that Abou Zubayda eventually was taken to a different location and was waterboarded How many times I was afraid I was waterboarded 83 times. And with the 83 times. They did not get any information from him that we didn't get here earlier. Actually, they get some lies. Put example. He admitted that he is a number three in Al Qaeda. Even though we knew from day one that I was a writer. What's not a member ofthe alqaida? He worked closely with Al Qaeda. He worked with Osama bin Laden, but he's not a number three off the organization. He's not even a member of the organization, so they get they get stuff from him that they wanted to hear. These things were not facts, and that is a dangerous element of torture right now. So you got this valuable information by building report with him. The The torture got bad information and no information. But when this was described in internal memoranda and eventually by government officials right when they talked about Enhanced interrogation. What was the story they told The story was we had to do in his interrogation techniques on waterboarding because his Abida stopped cooperating. And that is not true. I was obeyed Awas cooperating when they implemented all these things, and today With the black banners declassified. You can see all the stories you can see, for example how the plot off Jose Padilla, the so called dirty bomb bomber. Was disrupted or the apartment buildings across the U. S that a plot was disrupted or the or the Brooklyn Bridge. So called the plot or the WMD program for Alqaida. You will see a ll these kind of things and how we were able to get them. And how we were able to disrupt them. And let me tell you all the things happened. Months and months before and hates interrogation techniques started before waterboarding started. Waterboarding did not start until the end of July. Officially early August of 2000 and two Pdf, was already in custody by May. So how can you claim that idea was arrested and was stopped because of waterboarding if we did not even have waterboarding. In a related issue again, Ali Soufan served in the FBI from 1997 to 2005. His book is the Black banners Declassified. How tortured You riddled the war on terror after 9 11. I'll be back after a short break. I'm Dave Davies, and this.

"These are the leaders of congress in the days after combing was fired about the rush investigation. So would have been the majority leader in the Senate Mitch McConnell speaker of the house Paul Ryan and democratic counterparts. Did you tell them that you had opened a counter intelligence investigation into President Trump? The purpose of the briefing was to let our congressional leadership know exactly what we'd been doing opening a case of this nature. Not something that an FBI director, not something that an acting FBI director do by yourself, right? This is a recommendation that came to me for my team. I reviewed it with our lawyers I discussed it at length. And I told congress what we had done anyone object. That's the important part here. So that no one objected not on legal grounds, not on constitutional grounds. And not based on the fact, well, I'm sure that will be dug into or should be dug into very soon the gang of eight which includes who McConnell and Ryan and Steve Scalise in business that pointer who's he's still so badly here. But anyway, it's your top two from each party in each house, and they will be asked. So did they did they tell you about that? All right. And did you object to it tonight? I think that will have some political meaning McCabe Zanoni liar on the other hand, even I'm that's just too extraordinary lighter to issue. A history of this. Do you remember when the Bush Cheney administration was in so much hot water over waterboarding, and all that sort of stuff, and then it came out? Yeah. Yeah. Those are good times. Mr Vice president could to see you again. We breathe. Nancy the gang abate. We burrito. Brief Nancy, and Chuck they all knew about this and nobody objected at the time. Right. But then a couple of years later, then all of a sudden, it's a big deal. And so the same thing could be going on here. I don't remember. I do mostly we'll find out. I think it's exactly the same thing. The whole McCabe. Not quite remembering how were when the conversation about the twenty fifth amendment came up. I just find so hard to believe. Well, he were sitting around talking about booting out the elected president. And it's like not a major moment in your life will end he admitted stated seconds later in the Scott Pelley interview that yeah. And when I brought it up to the chief counsel at the FBI will he had a heart attack. And when he finally got off the floor. He said, no, we're not going there a bridge too far. Right. So it was an idea. So lunatic that his chief legal counsel said are you out of your f ING mind, he doesn't remember when it came up Har Harvard laws, Alan Dershowitz, also thought, it was a little crazy. This is a serious issue. I think McCain and rod Rosenstein, really believe that the president had obstructed Justice. I think they were wrong. But they honestly believe they were looking for a way short of impeachment to remove him from off. Office. I think that there ought to be hearings. I think that people ought to be put under oath and crossing Zaman as to precisely how serious was the discussion about the twenty fifth amendment. Look, I think any law enforcement official who thinks that the twenty fifth amendment operates in a case. Like, this is this qualified from serving in government. I don't want to put him in jail too. Many people are saying the too many people should go to jail. I don't want to criminalize political differences on either side, but there ought to be hearings..

"This may be a pointless exercise. He may have no chance he may ultimately not decide to run. I just don't I I'm struck by the vitriol of the response. And I mean the way he has been brutally attacked for having the temerity to suggest that he may want to run as an independent, and there may be time in this country to have an alternative that is not democrat, not Republican is it, you know, why don't we hear the guy out country? And if he's got if he hasn't constituency than he will find it. I think the the there are a lot of a lot of this is complicated. By the fact, you had people that were previously partisans either democrat or Republican have signed on with him. This is interesting. So yeah, we have. I mean the end. And of course, jumped out to me was Bill Burton. Yeah. Former Obama aide. Yeah. For not just former Obama, he's one of the I mean, one of the one of the first Obama first hires the White House years. Yeah. And he's working for him. And so is submit Steve Schmidt and Steve Schmidt who we all know is as a as a former Bush Cheney guy and McCain somebody who. You know, it was a senior strategist for from the McCain campaign and somebody who is a card carrying member of the never Trump movement. And I know that there have been people saying, oh, you know, Schmidt and Meese just trying to make money off this first of all two things. I I I've known Steve for a long time. He's doing just fine on actually I and I and I am never of those kind of never Trump did this guy disguised the tests, Donald Trump. And I don't think that he would be getting involved with something that he thought was simply going to be, you know, something that was going to assure a Trump reelection. And by the way, I'm not I don't think Burton's in that category. Either. Maybe they're cynical guns for hire. I've known both those guys I don't think either one of them really fit in that category. I I would agree with you on both. I know both as well. And I do think though, some of the some of the vitriol is aimed at that perception, maybe it's jealousy or resentment or you know, the the higher gun sense. But look show. He'll have his chance here. He he he has enough money that it really doesn't matter. What everyone says on Twitter about him? He can buy his way essentially onto the ballot and fifty states if he wants he can appear it's possible to do that United States. You can get signatures. You can you can put yourself on the ballot. It's hard to do. But if you pay enough money, you can get it done. I think everyone would agree that. So there's no one blocking that he's decided to circumvent the two party system. We've talked about this for a long time as you mentioned can go back a century..

"Of course, that'd be us where it's about eight ten right now. Eight ten at seven hundred w l w. And what are we got? What have we got about? Cub capped out cap down capped out cap. Cub camp. I mean nice school just the topic. Just the one point I touched on this earlier, and I'll make the point again is listening to more liberal show. Yes. And then PR show yesterday where for the most part everybody sided with. Are are indigenous friends they made the point everybody seems to agree that just putting on that hat that red hat that mega hat was to be provocative and everybody should understand that putting that on the only reason you'd wear that would be to provoke somebody, and therefore it's provocative, and I would say, yes, it is if you are emotionally unstable and the term. What is it? Now, Trump derangement syndrome has been tossed around kind of jokingly, but if you listen to people closely, it's actually it's kinda there. It's like a legitimate thing. I mean, if you believe that somebody put that hat on is doing it for the purpose of provoking someone and comparing it to a clan hood, you have problems because if you put the shoe on the other foot if you have somebody who. Has to throw rocks at cars with Hillary bumper stickers on them. We can all agree that that person has emotional problems. And if they say, no that that bumper sticker is provocative. I I hate that woman so much that I throw rocks at every car I see with the Hillary bumper sticker on it. We would all agree that that person has some serious problems. Well, it's the same. If I'm surprised people come out, and and mitt that they see that hat as a provocation because that's your problem. If that's how you view it. That's your problem. It is no more provocative than Clinton Gore. No, more provocative than Bush Cheney. It's a hat. And you sound kind of odd suggesting it's something beyond a hat just bear that in mind. Thank you, very much feel better. Now. Thank you very much. All right. So what do we have somebody emailed me? This listen to every morning. How is Chuck anger able to view such large areas of traffic is he in a helicopter? No a blimp we have the big blimp. And it's up there are regular basis flying around the tragedy. No, actually, there is such a network of cameras around the Tri state now, and you got your ears on there choking got an early for you. I don't know. Yeah. A little bit early. But they add more all the time. So it was initially. They were just like on the main interstates and whatnot. But there are more and more cameras and more and more places. So it's a lot easier to keep an eye on it. And. There. Chuck how you doing? I'm fine. Jerry email. I did not. I'm sorry listening every morning. How is Chuck Ingram able to abuse such large areas of traffic is he in the helicopter, and I said, no you're blimp. Dieting, come on, Mike cameras. But you said that was the last couple of weeks. They added a lot a lot more. Probably sure have total number of cameras. I'm many are out there easily over one hundred and fifty that law, and that's that's just the interstate system. But I'm starting to see a lot more like they've added eight cameras alone on beach avenue in one five really so I can see different intersections now. Although you were talking about some of those police cameras earlier are those I cannot see which police can they were you were you had a story about surveillance and different things going on. We're going to start charging for some of the places those I don't have access to. Yeah. But that's the bottom line. Is it covers the major roads and getting to some of the busier non major rose. Yes. And then I have some road indicators that start to change colors and different things to let me know where to start looking that helps out and on a day. Like today, I still don't get them. All your all knowing. All-knowing knowing as the cameras allow you to be correct. That's a great way to put it and time allows there you go. All right. Well, let's do it. Anyway, while you're here got I can do that from the UCLA traffic center..

And he's always smart, always measured. But he does a lot of me, which is what the New York wants John Solomon story in the hill is the blockbuster the day. But there's another story in the Wall Street Journal about Michael Cohen attempting to fix. Attempting to fix online polls and doing Michael Cohen like staff and all they want to talk about on. On.

"Lone survivor is the one I'm thinking of. And think of this. This is true. Even though the American people when it comes to politics soundly rejected Bush Cheney and their doctrine in the Middle East in two thousand six and elected Barack Obama. Everyone knows McCain was just dragging around that Bush stuff and elected a guy who basically rejected everything that had happened in the eight years before him. So the American people were on the record. And the only play that matters if you're Dick Cheney, or George W Bush they were rejected by the voters in two thousand six and then again in two thousand eight but even with all of that all the movies that go after that doctrine bomb, whereas movies that treat the American soldier with respect do well, which just goes to show that people the average American is not like. Your Hollywood producer your Hollywood actor. They can choose to reject the policy, but then not want to wallow in it. Oh, I got to have all of America's failings just pushed at me constantly, they rejected Bush and Cheney in two thousand six but every movie that goes after the whole vice it's so wonderful.

"That was not the case he is now on his way out or is he out? Yeah. I think he got fired earlier he was pushed I'll got fire. Fired or quit or anyway, he is now at believe departed. It's hard to keep up with this because they keep changing the dates of when are going to play out. But you know, and there were some a couple of resignation letters, which people are reading, I don't know if they're reading too much into it. You know, there's kind of a debate about how effective was Mattis at controlling Trump. And you know, I basically think that this whole adults in the room shit was a myth. I think John Kelly was a bigot in an incompetent. And I'm glad to see him go. I felt similarly about McMaster. But Mattis was basically the closest thing we had. And I've always believed that he was accidents hired. I think that Trump saw this military guy who had a catchy nickname was called mad dog. And he had all these bad ass catchphrases. And you know, he cast him. He cast him in the administration and he accidentally hired a qualified. Person because you know, whether or not you agree with Mattis's political positions or somebody who's had a lifetime of public service experience in his qualified for the role, and he is now gone leaving the administration with the aforementioned nepotistic, hires, criminals, incompetence and acting officials. So what do you think the repercussions of this are of the loss of Mattis? I think a big loss because he was very good at what he did. And he's very good for Ukraine and call Spadea spay when it came to Ukraine, and he really did something that must have driven Putin crazy, which was Mattis spent Ukraine's independence day in Kiev watching the military parade, and by Putin standards. That's like a massive insult that must have infuriated Putin when Madison that to have the secretary of defense chewing such strong statement of support like that right in Kiev. During the day parade, and he was very strong in saying Ukraine finally needs defensive aid after having its military crippled by Krupp kovic, and he was forceful in pointing out that this was Russia. Invading ukraine. This wasn't so called Russian back rebels. Was Russia the Russian military invading Ukraine, and so very strong, Ukraine. It's very big loss for Ukraine, and so you don't have to wonder with Mattis gone and somebody that without military experience in his place. Whether that is going to allow as we keep talking about this vacuum of power, the inner circle to come in and really enrich themselves whether air prints and his private mercenary army, very big business there whether Eric princes professional army is going to be filling the void. And so that's quite scary. And Eric prince wanted to set up that back channel meeting with the Kremlin and the Trump team in sexual that's. Studying that thing we're going to get together and also sending because Russia self Putin is in allied that is one of his top works as a private army that is expanding its business currently in Africa and spreading Russia's influence and involvement across Africa competing with China. There's the US is pulling out so all of this point this whole private mercenary army industry. This is where the competitions really heating up and certainly air prince sees that knows and is trying to grab his market share of the world's chaos, and and the forever wars that are going on started by George W Bush Cheney Rumsfeld the whole Condoleeza Rice, four segment of Pakalitha Mattis, also symbolizes that false hope that Trump could be contained when the world ended when Trump that surprise election with the help of as we now know this this massively Krupp coalition of support include the NRA. The kremlin. It's useful conduit. And so everyone was panicked. You and I are on the phone with grown men Republican operatives like sobbing practically because their lives are over. They're going to be on Trump's enemies list, and like liquidated, and then when Mattis was selected when Mattis was hired and.

I don't know how far apart her accident and diagnosed which was from your heart attack. How far apart was it was like a month? Nothing. Accident was a month and a half before her car accident where she broke her neck, and then the diagnosis was about three months after the heart attack. And then in the middle of this our family dog died as well who wasn't that old? It was like nine and a half ten years old. So you you went through these life changing experiences at basically the same time. Didn't make it easier for you to talk about it with each other. And to understand what it means to have. In a you know, a life changing diagnosis or profoundly. Transformative medical experience. The big the big thing. I think we both experience when I came out of the heart attack was I just had the biggest dumbest smile on my face for like a week where I could not stop joking around. I was so happy to be alive. And what it does. Is it kind of for me personally read just reaffirms what you care about? And you know, there's a lot of things I love in life. But one of the things I love and life is like laughing laughing, really hard. And I mean that even in the face of these tragic stories that we're talking about. I just think it's one of the great things we can do it did make me miss the comedy. I gotta be honest. It did make me feel that like maybe there's something to be said about if you can come up with a raucously funny movie that there's just something about that. That's undeniable.

Vice you have a different understanding of who they are than you. Otherwise would have you know, big was in the middle of editing.

Just get him out of your and I swear to God three days later. The Trump administration appointed him and that kept happening throughout the movie. We kept thinking that there were these characters, and these ideas that we're going to go away, and they just kept popping up over and over again of the bolt. One was really funny. I mean, my editor Angkor just couldn't believe it. It was like we were about to cut that. I was like well, he's back. Bolton was UN ambassador during Bush Cheney and is now national security adviser. I believe that's correct. Yeah. And known for very hawkish, very aggressive foreign policy recently. There's footage of him with a giant smile on his face shaking hands with Putin. That's the image fresh in my mind, and he was very anti U N when he became the UN ambassador. Oh, yeah. Buttons of character. There's no question. I really thought that was the end of him. So I couldn't believe it when he when he popped up in the middle of that. And and you know, the funny thing is you see a lot of these characters from W Bush Cheney administration who are still out there as pundits. You still get to hear them everyday talk about their views of foreign policy, and that's also very strange to see these these characters still walking the earth, exposing expounding ideas. But it, but it also points to the fact that really none of these stories are isolated. This is a longer arc of four or five decades. It's a bigger story and transition that's gone on in America.

So you you went through these life changing experiences at basically, the same time didn't make it easier for you to talk about it with each other. And to understand what it means to have, you know, a life changing diagnosis, or, you know, profoundly transformative medical experience. The big the big thing. I think we both experienced when I came out of the heart attack was I just had the biggest dumbest smile on my face for like a week where I could not stop joking around. I was so happy to be alive. And what it does is it kind of for me personally reach just reaffirms what you care about. And you know, there's a lot of things I love in life. But one of the things I love in life is like laughing laughing, really hard. And I mean that even in the face of these tragic stories that we're talking about. I just think it's one of the great things we can do it did make me miss the comedy. I gotta be honest. It did make me feel that like maybe there's something to be said about if you can come up with a raucously funny movie that there's just something about that. That's undeniable. So I definitely started talking to Farrell about maybe we have to get back in the saddle again and do another big old comedy because it's just no better way. Way to spend your life than like laughing every single day. So that I would say that's change that came out of it. Well, one more question and this relates to vice you new movie about Dick Cheney. So the movie isn't about the Trump administration. It's about the Bush Cheney administration. But are there any people from the Bush Cheney cast of characters who have reappeared in the Trump administration and through making vice you have a different understanding of who they are the new otherwise would have, you know, big one was in the middle of entity in the movie, we had John Bolton pop up in our story of Cheney W Bush, and I thought, you know, maybe we should cut that that guy. He's such a fringy kind of lunatic. Just get him out of your and I swear to God three days later. The Trump administration appointed him and that kept happening throughout the movie. We kept thinking that there were these characters, and these ideas that we're going to go away, and they just kept popping up over and over again up of the bolt. One was really funny. I mean, my editor and corn just couldn't. Believe it. It was like we're about to cut that. I was like well, he's back. Bolton was UN ambassador during a Bush Cheney and is now national security advisor heart believe, that's correct. Yeah. And known for very hawkish, very aggressive foreign policy recently..

"And if you're just joining us, my guest is Adam McKay who wrote and directed the new film, vice which stars Christian bale as Dick Cheney. So your wife Shira Piven had brush with mortality to. She was in a car accident. She broke her neck an imaging her injuries. The doctors found a spot on her lung the turned out to be malignant and she had to have lung surgery. How is she? Now. She thank you for asking. She is a hundred percent great turned out that it was a very slow moving cancer. But boy talk about a miracle. She went through this horrible car wreck. They discovered this spot. And she's she's too great. She's she's the opposite of me. She's so healthy and vibrant. So she's already doing like yoga and hot yoga. So she's doing fantastically. Well, I think it's just so. That you both went through these transformative experiences at a similar time. I don't know how far apart her accident and diagnosed which was from your heart attack. How was it was like a month? Nothing. Accident was a month and a half before her car accident where she broke her neck, and then the diagnosis was about three months after the heart attack. And then in the middle of this our family dog died as well wasn't that old? It was like nine and a half ten years old. So you you went through these life changing experiences at basically the same time. Didn't make it easier for you to talk about it with each other. And to understand what it means to have. In a life changing diagnosis or profoundly? Transformative medical experience. The big the big thing. I think we both experience when I came out of the heart attack was I just had the biggest dumbest smile on my face for like a week where I could not stop joking around. I was so happy to be alive. And what it does is it kind of for me personally reaches just reaffirms what you care about. And you know, there's a lot of things I love in life. But one of the things I love and life is like laughing laughing, really hard. And I mean that even in the face of these tragic stories that we're talking about. I just think it's one of the great things we can do it did make me miss the comedy. I gotta be honest. It did make me feel that like maybe there's something to be said about if you can come up with a raucously funny movie that there's just something about that. That's undeniable. So I definitely started talking to Farrell about maybe we have to get back in the saddle again and do another big old comedy because there's just no better way to spend your life. Then like laughing every single day. So that I would say that's a change that came out of it. Well, one more question and this relates to vice you new movie about Dick Cheney. So the movie isn't about the Trump administration. It's about the Bush Cheney administration. But are there any people from the Bush Cheney cast of characters who have reappeared in the Trump administration and through making? Vice you have a different understanding of who they are than you. Otherwise would have you know, big one was in the middle of editing. The movie we had John Bolton pop up, and our story of Cheney, and W Bush, and I thought, you know, maybe we should cut that that guy. He's such a fringy. Kind of lunatic was just get him out of your and I swear to God three days later. The Trump administration appointed him and that kept happening throughout the movie. We kept thinking that there were these characters these ideas that we're going to go away, and they just kept popping up over and over again up the bolt. One was really funny. I mean, my editor and just couldn't believe it. It was like we were about to cut that. I was like well, he's back. Bolton was UN ambassador during Bush Cheney and is now national security adviser. I believe that's correct. Yeah. And known for very hawkish, very aggressive foreign policy recently. There's footage of him with a giant smile on his face shaking hands with Putin. That's the image fresh in my mind, and he was very anti U N when he became the UN ambassador. Oh, yeah. Bolton's a character. There's no question. I really thought that was the end of him. So I couldn't believe it when he when he popped up in the middle of that. And and you know, the funny thing is you see a lot of these characters from W Bush Cheney administration who are still out there as pundits. You still get to hear them everyday talk about their views of foreign policy, and that's also very strange to see these these characters still walking the earth, exposing exposing ideas. But it, but it also points to the fact that really none of these stories are isolated. This is a longer arc of four or five decades. A bigger story and transition that's gone on in America. Well, it's really been a pleasure to talk with you again. Thank you so much. And I'm so glad that you and your wife recover from what happened each of you. And that you're both. Well, and I'm sorry about your dog. Thank you. Thank you. Although he did his name was pumpkin, and he had an incredible life. And we loved them like crazy, and he was a rescue. So that does give us some comfort and always always a pleasure to talk to you too. Adam McKay is nominated for Golden Globes for writing and for directing the new film. Vice the awards ceremony is Sunday after we take a short break our linguists. Jeff number will, tell us about an overlooked communications breakdown at the Mexican border that can be a life and death issue for migrants this is fresh air. WNYC is supported by the vital projects fund and the museum of modern art where the critically acclaimed retrospective, Bruce Nauman disappearing acts is on view at both MoMA in Manhattan and MoMA PS one in queens, more info and tickets at MoMA dot org. is ninety three point nine FM WNYC. You're listening to fresh air. Stay tuned for the latest news from NPR and WNYC on all things considered at four o'clock. This is fresh air. The tragic death of a seven-year-old girl in US custody at the border last month brought to light among other things the communication breakdowns between border agents and asylum seekers who were speakers of indigenous languages with limited Spanish, according to our linguist. Jeff Berg, most people aren't aware of the millions of central Americans who speak languages, other than Spanish, nobody should need reminding that there's more to the cultures of the land south of the border, then just tequila and tacos, but people aren't always aware that there's more to them than just Spanish to that was brought home a few weeks ago by the heart rending story of, yuck. Lean Carl or Jackie as people have been calling her the seven year old girl who died of dehydration in US custody a few weeks ago administration officials denied they had any responsibility for the death shortly after he turned him. Into the border patrol. The girl's father had signed an English language form saying she had no health problems after it was explained to him in Spanish. And after that, they said he'd been given plenty of opportunity to tell them about any changes in, yuck. Leans condition. But yeah, Colleen's father is a subsistence farmer from a remote area of Guatemala, who has limited Spanish, his native tongue is the Mayan language cookie. Which has about a million speakers. Journalists weren't sure what to make of that language CNN, and Reuters called it a dialect a word that sometimes used loosely to suggest a sub-standard form of speech rather than a proper language, but from a linguist point of view, that's like referring to Russian is a Slavic dialect, a Washington Post story called it a pre Columbian Mayan tongue as if it were the relic of a vanished civilization rather than one of a family of languages spoken by six million people in Mexico and Central America as one linguists pointed out, you may as well, call English a pre Norman invasion Germanic tongue. The fact is that the roots of every language stretch back forever. Okay. These are just the quibbles of a linguist. They certainly don't diminish the quality of the reporting of this story, but they reflect a widespread cloudiness about the heterogeneous, cultural and linguistic landscape in this part of the world cookie monkey Che Archie. And so on those are distinct peoples each with its own language, some with hundreds of thousands or even millions of speakers, many, the monolingual their literacy rates are generally low, but they have their own writing systems. In fact, several of them supported in the most recent release of Google, Android. Speakers of those languages have been migrating to the US for many decades, the majority legally, they're fleeing poverty, repression, gangs and state sponsored violence, the northern triangle as it's called of Guatemala Honduras, and El Salvador is reckoned one of the deadliest regions of the world taking together. There are more speakers of Mayan languages living in the US than of Navajos, which is the most widely spoken North American indigenous language, the recent influx of migrants from the region as created the need for more interpreters. According to a two thousand seventeen Justice department report, the Mayan languages, mom and Keach or among the languages most often heard in immigration cases ahead of French Bengali in Korean. Border agents are supposed to make use of interpreters when they have communication problems often over the telephone. But the procedures aren't always followed when homeland security secretary Kirsten Nielsen was asked at a house hearing, December whether an interpreter had been called for, yuck. Cleans father. She sidestepped the question and said only that the agents had done all they could. In fact, in its public communications, the DHS seems to suggest that a knowledge of Spanish is all that border agents need to do their jobs in a press conference last June secretary Nielsen boasted that all US border patrol personnel in the southwest border are bilingual every last one of them. It's true all agent trainees are required to take an eight week Spanish courses part of their training program and many speak it better than that. But that may not suffice when it comes to obtaining medical information or explaining an English language form to somebody who speaks only market Spanish. And maybe illiterate in the bargain, a two thousand fourteen report by public health consultants found that half the adults detained at the Arizona border. Didn't get an explanation of the legal papers. They signed in a language. They understood with all the opportunities for miscommunication. It's not surprising that, yuck. Lynne's father in the border patrol agents have given very different accounts of what he told them about his daughter's health when I talked to the university of Arizona linguist Robert Henderson who works on these languages, and is a co founder of an organization called the Maya health alliance which provides health services in the region. He told me that even those cookie who speaks some Spanish aren't up to using it when the topic turns to medical or legal issues. Why doesn't secretary Nielsen bring up the problems of indigenous language groups when she's talking about. Border security in the wall and press conferences are to congress maybe because there's no place for them. In the administration narrative. The wall is about the Hispanics with threatening to infest American communities with gangs, drugs, human trafficking, and massive crime. As the president put it in a recent tweet, all the malign stereotypes that are packed into the single phrase bad Hombres, but indigenous groups like the cookie in the mom don't conjure up the same baleful Specter's. In fact, those people aren't Hispanics in the first place. No, more than Inuits and Navajos are Anglos never mind that people like, yuck. Lynne's father aren't bad. They're not even Hombres.
