Pedro Gonzalez Describes Viral Misinformation Coming Out of Ukraine
"Probably one of the most viral stories that came out first was the ghost of Kyiv. The story about a Ukrainian fighter ace who shot down a bunch of Russians and was just kind of like this living legend, right? The story went totally viral and was shared by Dan Crenshaw and Adam kinzinger. It's fake. There's no evidence that this guy existed. But incredibly, you didn't just have congressmen sharing the story about this. You had the media actually defending the fact that it was fake. Military dot com defended the myth of the ghost of Kyiv. In other words, a U.S. based military publication defended foreign propaganda. Another one that went really viral was the story of snake island. Supposedly, Ukrainians on this military installation were killed to a man by a Russian warship and it was framed in a way that on the one hand it made the Ukrainians look like they were at the Alamo. On the other hand, it was designed to make us want to get into it, right? Because these inhuman savages had killed these soldiers who were essentially vulnerable and prepared to surrender. And zelensky himself provoked promoted it as if it was true. He used their funeral as a kind of propaganda item, but it turns out that those soldiers surrendered, they were captured, they were given food, water, one of them was even interviewed by the media, and he reacted with confusion when he found out that he was killed in action. And that zelensky had used his funeral as again to gin up support for getting other countries into this
Rep. Dan Crenshaw Clarifies His Position Following a Controversial Social Media Clip
"And back talking to Dan Crenshaw, congressman representing Texas second congressional district. Dad in a second episode that was kind of bandied about social media. A guy stands up and town hall and basically says, what can you do to help the January 6th protester is? And you made two points. You said one we're in the minority, so there are limits to what we can do. But I think the second point is what I want to ask you about. You said that taking some ball like action kind of like showing up in solidarity with those guys. You said doesn't really help them. It's maybe a photo op for me, but what does it do for those guys? In fact, they may even be retaliation and arguably those guys could be put into lockdown because of the public visibility and so on. The question I kind of wanted to ask you is a, do you sort of stand by those remarks and be what if the guys who are on the inside said, you know what? We'll take the heat. We want Dan Crenshaw to calm down here and at least make a presence on our behalf at least assert publicly the idea that there is mistreatment going on. There are people who are being held. Their trials are being put off for long periods of time, address the January 6th issue the way you feel about it now. In the context of what you were asked about in the town meeting. Yes, there's a couple things. There's based on the allegations and the evidence we've seen or heard about, there's no question there's some mistreatment going on. And it appears to be a very broad problem throughout our jailing system, our prison system. So that seems to be a fact. But I do stand by those answers in a recent judiciary committee hearing the witnesses testify that after those congressional visits, things got worse. So it does appear to be the case that things will get worse when the wrong kind of attention is drawn to this. Now, I've been through this before. This question with this question of what Congress should do, what kind of influence we should exert. To get the outcome we wanted. If you remember the navy seal, Eddie Gallagher. He was in squalid conditions as well. He was being treated unfairly, treated as if he was guilty until proven innocent. And there was a discussion in Congress about what kind of letter to write to the DoD to get this on the president's radar. Is at the time the president was Trump. So we had an ally in the administration. That's another. That's another thing that's different now. And there is my side of it, which said, look, we've talked to legal counsel. We believe that this approach is the right one because it might actually have an outcome. It might actually have some kind of benefit. And then there's this other letter that Gallagher family wanted and that some members of Congress wanted, which was really just performative. It was really just a shot in the dark that had no real legal teeth to it that had no real arguments to it. And what has been ignored. But it sounded better. And so the question is do we want to sound good or do good? That's the

They don't wanna move good autumn. You know they're taking their lead from bernie. And then what i mean by this is this is complicated right because people have to understand. There's two bills and the negotiation between these two is is linked. But it's really an internal debate amongst democrats so bernie saying. Don't don't vote for the bipartisan infrastructure. Bill unless they attach it to reconciliation which just makes it one giant bill in which case republicans are obviously gonna throw their hands up and i the republicans i mean you would have voted for the infrastructure bill by itself but but not for it.

Why would you take policy. Measure after policy measure that increases illegal immigration and. The answer is because that's exactly their goal There there there's no other way to look at it. I mean there's i think there's a lot of people who want to give some of them the benefit of the doubt. Look they're just. They're just bad at their jobs. I don't i don't know way.

"It isn't what works what doesn't work. I think more people would probably be vaccinated at this point. But there's all sorts of red flags and alarms sounding for the american people when we have things like mandates because we know the government isn't telling the truth and so raised more red flags than just being honest about it or public health institutions of lost unbelievable amount of trust just in so many ways the way. They've acted the way they've changed. I mean there's so many examples that new people listening probably already know whether it was whether mass worker don't work. I mean if you look in historic. Cdc guidance for pandemics. None of the crapper doing his in it right in. And it's not like these people were just stupid. It's just that that was a time when emotions were taken out of it and politics were taken out of it and it was just the science and it turns out. There's not a lot you can do. It turns out. I mean the best government could be doing pretty much what we were doing andre latin curve. Let's not overwhelm the hospitals. I don't even mean that. I mean i mean support. The hospitals support the hospitals with funding with hiring additional nurses. That's what the government role got on a pandemic Operation speed developing the vaccine in the first place. That's a that's a government role in all government had to do say we'll buy it and then private industry went ahead and did so but but i totally agree with what you're saying. Which is the they've lost trust and they've they've made this vaccine thing. I mean i have no reason to think. There's any danger with the vaccine. I really don't but what it's mandated even me a very like i start to like the act a little so i so i totally get people's reactions and i it's just it's been such an unnecessary like fifty percent mortality rate. You could make that argument a little better but with the way things are and what the fact that anybody who wants a vaccine can get it and look what you just need to keep telling people if they really wanted to increase vaccine uptake every single day. They would show the statistics of who's hospitalized. That's all you would do right and say look and let people making sure zero possibility that there's some risk vaccine they're always but your risk of getting cova for many of you is far far greater. Get the vaccine and that would be the best argument then and leave people the hell alone under that. Yeah there's again. We just have different philosophies for the right. It's like look there's only so much we can do. Not only that but only so much we should do. The is doesn't believe that. I mean they really believe that they can control everything and that there are some moral good behind that and But it just never works. And i don't know how many times we have to learn that lesson and just human history will learn it when it gets hard enough and then we'll course correct and things will get more comfortable and easy and then learn it again. Do you have knowing what you just said with. You know feeling more cynical about it and what is wrong with these people. Is that something that you feel like. You have deeper and further political aspirations or or. Is this something you know like well. You know i did what i wanted to do. And now i'm gonna move along and do something else. Or i don't know i don't know i don't have to make that decision for a while. There's no decision points coming up for me. So i don't have to think about these things a whole hot and yeah politics finicky business And it is about opportunity. So if you're gonna move up there's usually a seat opening or something. There's something that's happening out of your control. It's not like maybe a normal career researcher to lay out a pathway in those who do lay out the pathway in politics i think ultimately fail because it's too obvious to everybody. It's like you're just trying to get to this next day. Wanted to turn people off. Yeah yeah and that's just my observation. But i don't know You do not do this job because it's a likable. It's not it's unenjoyable job. I don't know. I think some people do like it. Maybe some people like being. Yeah like like the title. I guess the title. I think other people like the place. Maybe everybody thinks for like a super rich. No two apartments in dc and houston socks. And you're not gonna you're not gonna pay raise going up. Yeah so you know. There's just a lot of myths retirement for the rest of your life. No that's a myth much where that came from. It's not true so it's just you know you do it because it's important and you can have some kind of impact the reason you get into politics and not into policy. Because that's where i was originally looking at. I got out of the military. I went to harvard kennedy school's which is basically a policy degree. And i was just looking at policy jobs. I'm not even sure what that meant. Because i was just leaving the military but politics get into because you want to affect a wide variety of policies have that bigger cultural impact. And so i do enjoy that. It's fulfilling. I wouldn't say it's enjoyable. But it is fulfilling well one thing. I think you do really well. Is i think maybe the distinction between the to be politics is more of the public front facing side of things where we see and so you do a good job explaining in your videos online and social media accounts. Here's here's the real deal. Here's what i think. Here's the real issue. Here's what's going on. And i think that's that's helpful..

"This is bullshit but we're going to do it so that we can implement this kind of control. I don't think they do that. But aren't there a few people who do that. And that kind of moves the needle and some people maybe feel like they have noble intentions but they're being manipulated to move an agenda forward now. I think they're wired much differently than conservatives and they just they honestly just think differently Again i don't think smart enough to to strategize the way that we've conservatives are always trying to figure out like this this we're always trying to theorize okay. There's no way that a reasonable person can possibly think this so. There must be this alterior motive. And what i have to explain to people as you need to study the psychology of the left. A little bit better. This is how they think they believe the crap they're saying now they might not have it i. It might have been skeptical at first but they quickly. They quickly made themselves believe it. They believe they have sort of a pathological sense of compassion right just like a mother has pathological sense of compassion. If you get near her cup she'll kill you right now. Is that a. Is that a reasonable long or of course because you're a hiker and you walked by. Is it reasonable that this mother bear killed you. That's pathological compassion. And the left has the left. Can't see anything but their own version of compassion. And they're willing to kill for it like they're willing to control for it. They're willing to become ultra authoritarians for it just so they can moralize over you so it's important to understand that that's how they think and that's who they are just disposition speaking. Well it is interesting too because there's a level of vitriol that i see from the quote unquote compassionate and the pedic right that that's what i've seen anyway. Well how can you be claiming to be so empathetic on this side but then just so vile frankly a lot of ways in a slightly different content pathological compassion. That's where the pathological comes from because it it's gone too far and it's not well balanced right. These are not balanced people. They only they're the you know. They moralize very strict sense. On one thing you know. I compassion for this one thing And it eliminates all other forms of reasoning eliminates considerations for just governing structures that eliminates considerations for really really all other senses of morality. And if we want to dive into that of the psychology of morality you know it would be things like you have compassion caring kindness. These these are considered moral attributes but also the sense of is considered a moral attributes. Respect authority do you believe in a sense of authority sense of fairness Now people define fairness differently if they're on the left or the right but these are these are moral considerations for instance Liberty might be considered a for the right. At least we consider that a moral consideration left doesn't so because they because they exclude these these categories they have an inability to reason fully as as as fully thinking individuals. Do you feel on this on other side of the aisle can you. Can you make a similar argument for the conservative side of the aisle. Being to rational without having as much empathy. Like do you feel that way. Yeah i mean there can be. I mean you can get pathological on right and on the right it would look a little bit more like that like the the the kind of pathological need to preserve institution even if it's not good right and because you got to conserve it conservative. Sure but So it can't go too far so the right balance is always frankly. This is is need liberals to sort of point out injustices and like scream and cry compassion but you need conservatives to actually do the problem solving liberals are not suited for it at all. They screw it up. They don't think about second third order consequences. They don't think rationally they think what their hearts and this is the best kind of liberal right. I think the worst the more the kinds of you're talking about earlier where secretly that is what we're power right. I mean i. I've heard the distinction between liberals and leftists for example. And that's kind of the i think progressives leftist surges are strict strictly authoritarians. And because they believe that they can do it better or that they're more compassionate so that is the ultimate moral authority. What all of it. I think it's hard to it's hard to dissect the psychology of these people for them to be so passionate about it. I'm sure they believe in their own. Good right there. Believe in their own superiority They're utopian assists and to get to utopia that they envisioned. You have to have total control and the constitution the republic they get in the way of these things checks and balances just the federal assistance. They'll gets away of of that of that. Streamline decision making and action oriented philosophy that they want action action action and that probably explains more. Why biden's doing this because his base demands action always want action like for them. There is no problem. That government can't solve and shouldn't be solving. All problems are their government to solve for conservatives. It's it's not that's not true. I mean we. That's actually one of the first questions we asked about a problem one. Is that a problem or you just making it up. There's a lot of times they're making it up or is it that bigger era right wildly but then the next question is should government even have a hand in this one. Government has a hand in this. There's cost to that. There's second third order effects. Maybe we should dissect those and then if government should have a role which government should it be local state federal and these are reasonable questions for reasonable government to be asking. And it's it's the. This comes from our founding philosophy of limited government and so for the left has no no interest in those questions. Do you feel like your entrance into the world of politics which has really been what over the past four years or so. Do you feel like you've let me ask a different. How do you feel like you've changed. What have you seen. What have you experienced. And how has that impacted you personally. In the way that you view america and the way we function and everything else more cynical and jaded frank. I hear it a little bit. And so i'm wondering if that's always been the case or if that changes and hardens you over time yeah i mean. I was definitely not naive or idealistic. Coming into some people are like those are the politicians e generally here from who were like kick get anything done up here no shit dude. Like that's the point right. Actually that's not. What frustrates on washington. That frustrates me. It's just now come from the military where i feel like felt like i saw the best of americans all the time especially the seal teams and and now i'm in politics. And so i. Just i see the angriest people all the time a see the meanest people. I'm just wondering what is what's wrong with you guy who's just so angry online and just saying such vile things like what is on wrong you know and like there's there's a lot of them and i don't like that. I don't like what i see with the populist movements I think left leftism has always been a populist movement. At least the way. I define it. And i don't like what i see right. Do you mean by lobbyists movements. When i say populists what i mean is telling people what they wanna hear instead of the truth and i don't think there's another good definition the populist try to define it they're like it's what the people want right. That's the stupidest thing i've ever heard. Let me tell you why. Because every politician every political movement thinks they're doing what the people want the thing is and the reason we even have politics is because people want different things right now is about how you might solve a problem and so what we do. We divide ourselves into political parties. Different philosophies about how you might go about problem solving. What's the best way to govern different ways. Then we debate that. It's all for the people you can't just say well it's the people want you know what the people want. Free two thousand dollar checks. That doesn't make it good policy. Populism is stupid. It's reflecting people's emotions right back at them in order to gain their trust. That's manipulation that's not leadership leadership is actually telling people the truth so that that's my definition of populism. That's how i debunked with the popular say. Populism is but it actually so i've thought about this a lot even just over the past couple of days and i think i made a post on twitter earlier and i said something like you know if the government would have just been more honest and had some integrity about cova and just told the truth about what it is what..

"Representative Dan Crenshaw and asked him about the silliness going on with coalbed why are we so tribal lies and divided and more think it's interesting you bring up that it's a global reaction and I've been kind of putting some thought into this and I feel like social media is a big part of this and the fuel as you know a social media is essentially tribalism that's the fuel of social media and so do you think maybe that's how this got so partition and so crazy I mean like for instance in here in the Houston area the judge Lina Hidalgo says she's gonna extend the lockdown order until June tenth even though the governor's completely gonna over rider and the police are like we're not enforcing this we're not finding anybody for this it's like this weird cognitive dissonance in the only reason I even do that is really just to be partisan to be tribal in our manner do you think social media feeds that a lot of things that I yeah I just got the news about about our county judge here as well and it's just unbelievable equipment in her case it's it's a very confusing there's there's no reason to do what she's doing she knows the governor will override it and just for all your listeners out there you don't have to listen to what she sang think the governor the governor's orders are are the actual log that as the force of lawyers do not and this betrays a real sense of maturity on her part you know it's not forget that you have zero experience the first for this job at all and that that is a really has really been shown to be the case throughout the crisis and and that's unfortunate it's pretty good advisors but I I don't know what on earth she's hearing that she should.

Houston - Rep. Dan Crenshaw on Fighting the Coronavirus
"Welcome back this is the Ben Shapiro show joining us online is represented in Crenshaw represented for Texas's second congressional district to point to the homeland security committee and budget committee down is a brand new book out called the fortitude American resilience in the era of outrage it's a must read it really is excellent in thanks for joining the show appeared okay Sir I am doing well thanks for having me been so when we begin obviously with the the situation around the country with regard to covet nineteen so obviously we are seeing the numbers roll in that they're really ugly what's the situation down in Texas because we've heard sort of conflicting media reports about our area's locked down what policies that should be implemented in Texas yeah it definitely is a hit as hard as New York by any stretch or Louisiana or many other parts of the country there's probably a number of reasons for that we we we live with social distancing a much more so than typical New Yorker white or even somebody from LA or San Francisco so I I monitor the number of new cases here in Houston daily and that they're increasingly early but not exponentially and that continues to be good news our hospitals are are far from being overwhelmed were also quite accustomed to dealing with disasters and our our hospital they've often prepared accordingly now we have the Texas Medical Center here in Houston which is the greatest greatest in the world so we're feeling pretty good R. as as far as what are locked down is it it's a safer at home order so it's not nearly as strict as saying California or New York which are more shelter in place orders and we can we can go out to we can get take out we can we can go grocery stores but you know but for the most part the federal guidelines are being implemented here so when we look forward to at the development of the virus it is very difficult to tell based on the modeling where this thing goes or how we get out of it because they're the modeling basically says you're supposed to stay in place for now they're saying weeks perhaps months all the way up to beginning of June maybe I. N. the model from university of Washington is currently being revised downward in terms of number of hospitalizations number of insulators that are needed the death tolls are coming in fairly well below where those estimates were even a week ago they've they've lowered it now over the weekend to eighty thousand by August first which is still a terrible number but it was ninety five thousand about five days ago so what are the factors that you are looking for and taking into consideration in terms of how we get back out there when we re open economy and how it's done yeah when we look at these Kirsty people have to understand something the area under the curve is basically the same and so the whole point of slowing the spread in taking actions that we're taking right now it was too quite quite literally slow the spread into our public health system to catch up so what I want to see from our leaders but the local level and the federal level is is a strict adherence to a time line just IT needs that we we we we have to balance out the what what is it your public health crisis from the economical side because of the night I spoke to doctors here in Houston yesterday they're not allowed to do a lot of procedures even other hospitals are empty okay so people are putting off lane of potentially life saving procedures cutting off healthcare there's going to be consequences here there are consequences to an economic downturn whether it's increased suicide or depression rates whatever what have you divorce rate they're they're a real public health concerns here that that are outside the the concerns of the pandemic there has to be balanced here I think everybody realizes that but but there's this but there's this fear to actually set a a hard time line where we say okay you know what we're done with our tactical retreat I'm using military terms here I would call we're doing a tactical retreat okay we ran into the enemy we weren't quite prepared for that and to me so we retreated a little bit we need to get our centers about us we need to reload our ammo get our supply lines ready but then we actually eventually have to go and attack back in attacking back means living our lives in either opening society while we fight the pandemic the measures we have to be looking out of things like how many ventilators are we able to produce right now looks about and this is this is the minimum about five to seven thousand more ventilators a week now there's actually many more being produced that we just can't really measure as easily because they're being produced in the private sector oil and gas companies here are reformatting their factories produce more ventilators we're producing way more PP were ramping up our production rapidly and we're looking at ways to build field hospital so there's a lot of preparation on the public health side and that is occurring and we need to help people I think a little bit more clearly that that's the point of the isolation that's the point of the social distancing and then that ends when we actually come out and fight we unite we fight we get our supply lines in place and we actually we actually move forward because we have to balance that out we have to I I I think it's totally unrealistic to think that we continue the lockdown for months on end that that that that's not the same all yes so what does it look like when we come out of this there's been a lot of talking about you know people wearing masks social distancing mass events still we are not taking place like the RNC is posting place in August obviously so the DNC now and what you know the election in November there's been talk about a second wave that it happens in the fall it basically seems to me that the medical developments will be with the medical developments will be that the that the testing the testing will be what it will be that the I. C. using the ventilators will be what they will be and this can be very difficult to say to people that we want you to lock down again for months at a time can come September that there's going to have to be some sort of transition to a new normal until point when we have that you know we can go back to some sort of some sort of real normal also I've yet to hear sort of the factorial decision making from the trump administration as to when we go back to work so president trump is very encouraging that he wants to go back to work but he doesn't want to be a permanent change between the government and the American citizenry and that's something I'm missing from Democrats who seem to want to use this crisis as an opportunity to radically re shift the balance of power between citizens and the US government but it seemed time if you really nice you know the inputs are so that we could have some level of predictability like okay when it gets below this number we can talk about people who are below the age of forty going back to work when it gets below this number we can talk about you know how we reopen certain businesses or events of a particular size we haven't seen any of those sorts of models put out there yeah and and we have to decide I I've seen I've seen some suggestions I think I said I saw Scott Gottlieb say listen after fourteen days if if we're seeing a continued decrease in the new numbers of cases or deaths that's a good indication that we should be re opening that segment of society and another way to look at it is in the R. factor below one or above one as far as the contagion backer meaning if your person is infected how many people are you expecting of it is that the less than one well then you're on track to reopen the economy you could you could like you said let's just decide what it's going to be and we need to give people that predictability I I I am still in favor of even even without those specific factors we need to set a time line and we need to decide that we are just going to fight this and there are going to be new normals but we can live in that new normal whether it's we all wear masks now we all wear you know we all don't touch each other now but we can also still get back to work you know on a micro level Americans are pretty good at problem solving okay so we had an office and it was set up this way well we can still work there we have to set it up this way now we can also we should also be investing heavily in the in the testing regime that's one thing I didn't mention heavily heavily heavily in the testing regime but also testing for antibodies so you can you can imagine a future near future where we can ramp up the production of millions and millions of these tests to test for antibodies to see who is actually in me and we'll get them right back into the work force them to get that certificate of health with what that whatever it is but these are the kind of mo this is the kind of mobilization that we need to be thinking about and setting a timeline to because we have to give the economy and our society some

"dan crenshaw" Discussed on CATS Roundtable
"Good Morning America. This is the catch roundtable John Katzman tedious here Sunday morning. What's going on? Well we've got a real war hero. Here he was a navy seal. Spent ten years became a lieutenant. Commander served in Iraq served in Afghanistan. And now he's a Congressman l'esprit from Houston we have congressman gain crenshaw. How you congressman? Do well thanks for having me John Now being from Houston. That's an energy town. Sure Risk Energy town. You're you have problems with the border yet. A little bit of everything then yeah. I'm trying to keep America on track. You know in Texas we provide provide most of our energy Gas Industry is big in Texas of course fracking revolution that has provided clean natural gas to the to the world into the country truth. It's based in Texas and And of course we're border state so we've been dealing with. We've seen firsthand the problems of the border and in fact the the state of the state date government of taxes has been instrumental spend our own money and huge ways solve the border crisis. Now I've seen on on television last week week that the Mexican soldiers Mexican government is providing the soldiers to protect our border. The Mexican government has been an amazing partner over the past six months to a year that ever since the president trump read the riot active. Yeah I it had something to do with that I mean. The president took a hard line with Mexico. He did threaten tariffs and the Mexican government has no they have no interest in starting a fight with the US they also have no interest in being this transit state right they. They don't want hundreds of thousands of people going through their country to get our border so there's mutual interest here and frankly the Mexican government's just been a great partner. They're defending their southern border. They're allowing us to engage in the remain in Mexico policy. Because so what does that mean. It means that up to three hundred people per day can be sent right back to Mexico. City held their for their hearings. So what does that do. It's not everybody was crossing but see. It's a huge deterrent. Because what what what. Immigrants Crossing always always thought was that they'd be caught and then they'd be released and they would they would never be prosecuted. We would never actually enforce our border laws. They've known this for years. That's why we had hundreds of thousands of people crossing once you start start that deterrence or they stopped crossing and we we've seen big big drops and then people coming across the border. So the border problem is it. Looks like we're winning the war we're doing better and now being from Houston you have energy in the United States. We're producing see more oil than than than Saudi Arabian Hallway. Yeah I mean it's amazing. The energy revolution that that has occurred in the United States why we should be proud of it and and as we look to the future and how that affects our environment. Because I know a lot of listeners and definitely a lot of people in New York. They're looking at things like the green new deal and thinking what we need to do that. But we need to educate ourselves on what the actual solutions are if we care about reducing carbon emissions we have to think about what has worked and what will not work so what has worked worked wise the US decreased emissions by fifteen percent over the last couple of decades. You know what is caused that we've reduced more carbon than the last ten countries combined all right. That's how much we've reduced carbon emissions. So why is that. It's because of natural gas is because of fracking and people don't realize that but actually gases much cleaner if we can export more natural gas to places like China and India Indian China's responsible for thirty percent of the world's emissions. We have to export natural gas. They're looking all above the approach. The people who advocate for the green new deal. They also want to ban nuclear nuclear energy. That's a carbon-free energy. Why on Earth would we van that? They don't know what they're talking about. But maybe they do and the reality is they don't care about reducing carbon emissions they actually just care about taking over the economy and implementing socialist utopia. That's actually what's happening and people need to wake up to that. You know the northeast up here in New York and Boston. They import import natural gas from Russia. They import dirty natural gas and it is dirtier that they expect about thirty percent more carbon emissions getting their natural gas than we would. They actually import port that because they don't want to build pipelines to use US energy. This is how backwards the energy thinking. Isn't this country. We need to fix it now. You served in Iraq. You've served in Afghanistan. My God I mean it seems like forever. What's your vision? What do you think it should be done? And what do we think we already. We have been there a long time and I think people need to put that into perspective and you know we. We've we've wrongly only told the American people for too long that there is some mission accomplished and data to these things but as long as there's an enemy out there that that wants to kill us we have have to keep an eye on them. All right doesn't mean we have to build up nations. It doesn't mean we have to have one hundred thousand troops but we do need to be able to engage in counterterrorism operations align with partners build up those partners in Afghanistan and Iraq. We still have to be able to do that in order to make sure that terrorist organizations like the Taliban like like they'd like these Shia militia groups that are that are putting together protests in Iraq like Isis. They don't that they don't have a strong that they aren't able to reconvene so so it is a long term presence that is needed. You know we've been in Germany forever. We've been in Japan forever. We have thirty thousand troops in South Korea. Nobody ever complains about that so so I think people need to take on some perspective when they start using slogans like no more endless wars and bring the troops home. It's more complex than that. I mean to educate ourselves a little bit on it now. You're six. Sixth Generation Texan people in New York are moving to Florida. People in California are moving to Texas. What do you see about this migration because was no taxes right right it is happening quite a bit of people? Were leaving these deep blue states. Because they're not governed well and the taxes are too high and people. We're unsure what they're really getting for those high taxes and and they're right you know it's changing it's changing the nature of our politics a little bit too two. I know Florida. They're a little bit worried about about a Yorkers bringing those blue politics down there we were a little less about that with Californians. Come to Texas. I and the reason I'm optimistic. Because I believe that most of the Californians leaving California understand the politics of why they're leaving and so we see that little bit in the data to now what percentage of the war is finished. It depends on what you think. The end the end result is out of that number off off the top. My head on what we've been built it it's been getting built. You know slowly but surely throughout the past year the wall has always been part of the solution you know. I don't think anybody ever claimed that it was the only only thing that we needed What we really need is law enforcement? And that's what we've been able to accomplish over the last six months we do need walls and a lot of places. The the Border Patrol L. tells us we need walls and places and we should. There shouldn't be it shouldn't be controversial to simply build infrastructure where we need it. Of course the Democrats made everything controversial in the last year. But it should it be and and more than that we need to fix. Certain loopholes asylum loopholes the flora settlement. There there are certain legal obstacles to enforcing the law of the way we need to that being said. DHS has made a lot of progress. Catch and release. You know mentality as has has been fixed to a large degree where we're not releasing as many illegal title immigrants back into the population as we used to we. We've made a lot of progress on that and we need to continue to make progress on that house from less question Washington off the impeachment will ever be peace between the Republicans and Democrats. I suppose that depends on how you define peace. I think we should define piece as some kind of mutual respect where the where the first or the first instinct isn't to attack character and intent of the other and that's that's a pretty low standard that I'm that I'm presenting their. We're always gonNA fight and we we should. That's the nature of politics but you don't have to try to destroy people's lives. I watched that. I've watched that happen too many times. It's not both sides. It's to be frank. It is that I think the Democrats far more than Republicans do because they know they can get away with it right. They've got the they got the mainstream media. Who will if we make? We made some outrageous claim name. The mainstream media would question it and they would not believe it right as nor the should but if the Democrats do it they just repeat it right and that is the double standard that takes place and I hope they They realize how bad it is for the country songs from Gay Krant. Sure thank you for your service to the country. You've done wonderful things and you continue to serve your country in Washington and we'll catch up with you real soon. Thanks for having me thank you. This is the catch roundtable. We write back..

The Leadership of Congressman Dan Crenshaw
"Congressman Dan Crenshaw life has taken in from Houston to Venice Waylon as a kid to the Middle East and Afghanistan is a navy seal and Saturday and I live in Washington. DC as a congressman representing the Texas Second Congressional district. There's a lot more friendly relationship in Congress and I thank people realize Probably should do a better job of letting the American people know that we talk about the importance of Central America in US policy and his transition from military to civilian life. I Imagine Kaufman and this is the strategic presented by the George W Bush Institute. What happens when he crossed the forty third president late night? Sketch comedy and compelling conversation the strategic podcast born from the word strategically which was coined by ASK SNL and embraced. By the George W Bush administration we highlight the American spirit of leadership and compassion through thought provoking conversations. And we're reminded that the most affective leaders are the ones who laugh. Well thanks so much to congressman Dan Crenshaw for joining us today on the strategic just congressman. And we appreciate you taking a few minutes here. Absolutely great to be with you. In our CO host. Today is the Great Lower Collins. WHO's the director at the Bush Institute? SMU Economic Growth Initiative Initiative. Laura thanks for hanging out again thanks for calling in great must be all the cookies I brought it. I'm easily bribed. Yes so congressman you represent the Great State of Texas. Were you grew up but your your background isn't strictly restricted Texas year. Pretty uniquely global. Can you tell us a bit about the path that you took to where you are today. Wow well quite a quite a few years so I'm from Houston My Dad was Petroleum engineer he He jumped around a lot of a lot or some companies over's career and You know as a result we moved around a lot so my life was going between Houston and overseas and back the east and back overseas and You know somewhere on the lines of I wanted to join the military Specifically the seal team's James Next you didn't WanNa do in the military wanted to be a seal specifically right. Yeah that's what I did. And did a few deployments a little mixed up on third deployment and that kind of sent me on the path in Amman now because eventually resulted in me. Happy military fought that pretty hard for years. And and Did a couple more deployments and operations role but eventually had to leave. Some of that time in the military too was was some overseas living with. You said Your father father worked in the oil industry in west end lived overseas at time. He spent some time in Central America. Correct Yeah South America. Yeah so Lived in Ecuador a little bit Middle School and then actually all my entire high school spent in both hot Columbia de. Do you think that your childhood influences your public policy in any way because you were exposed to so so many different cultures as you as a as a young kid and and a lot of a lot of different experiences than your typical politician. I think it does. I mean it's So as a as a younger kid what I'm exposed to is kind of a need to defend the United States Like a new. Defend your patriots them you know. America is sort of punching bag around the world. Because it's it's the big the big guy in the room right there you know it's it's it's always been that way and it was just commonplace for everybody to to to take swipes out there you know. Sometimes you know well and say well intentioned but not not in a malevolent ways. It's just is what it is and that's just not something you're used to at a young age usually unless you grew up overseas like I did so that's the first thing I did start thinking about patriotism early on in Mike It wasn't default. You know and so and And other than that though it just gives you perspective Perspective on how good we have it in a lot of ways and What we should be grateful for and In Perspective on other countries you know deeper understanding and and and You know appreciation for for other cultures as well You know my my My parents actually. After I live in Columbia my parents moved to Venezuela. I was earning college by this point. So I know some pretty well I knew it was prospering. And then as it devolved into terrible socialist policies. I don't pretty well like what we be grateful for. Yeah totally do you think you know. We're in kind of a time where there is a bit of an isolationist streak but so far in your short political career. You haven't had a that perspective you've been a little bit more More of a proponent of being involved abroad particularly in Central America. You have co sponsored some legislation About the northern triangle. You've visited with our Central America Prosperity Project participants which We really appreciate. And you've talked to us a little bit about the digital strategy that we proposed for Central America. How do you Game just a a little bit about what that means you why you think it's important. Yeah well we have to empower our neighbors and we have to give them the same lessons that America has learned over the last few hundred years. Unfortunately we're I think we're forgetting many ways but but we'll here's what we learned. We learned that when you empower the individual to to live free and protect their personal property rights and their freedoms. Then you have the best chance for human prosperity and it's a really simple lesson that America has learned that America has been the leader of for very long time. We're questioning that ourselves lately You know as we're flirting with socialism and things like that But as we question it we we should also Empower our others and I thought it was cool to meet with you guys with your team on this and and hear about the digital infrastructure ideas. Because what I got from that was exactly the right American lesson which is you empower people to to live and thriving economy and In the best way to help people come out of poverty is to empower empower them and I just really cool conversation that we have you know talking about. What would they presented which was like listen? The these people want to work right but they can't. I can't set up an Uber Account. They can't set up online banking. They can't sit up you know. They can't rent their house out there. BNB just some basic stuff You know want we help with that digital infrastructure and allow them to thrive you know again. These are neighbors where we do have to do it. To look at ways to and smart ways to help development oatman these countries. And it's it's not just throwing money away. Corrupt governments no. It's actually look some more creative ways to do that. Deeper than that. You mentioned the corrupt governments and there are some some things that we completely take for granted here because we do have transparent government not perfect but transparent. We do have A situation where we have the rule of law and we have protection of property rights. These are things that I don't think a lot of Americans understand. Fundamentally don't exist particularly in the northern triangle countries in way that makes every bit of existence difficult. There's lack of economic opportunity If you want to set up a business pay your taxes you might get shook down by a a government official in addition to street gangs You your tax rates on it being higher than they need to be because there are so few people actually paying them and there's just a lot of things are the adept to make it an untenable situation. It's very hard as an ordinary person to to make it in any sort of way and have they lacked fundamental freedom that we have. Yeah exactly. Yeah 'cause back to we should really be more grateful for the United States of America And I think we used to be as a country and we're slowly forgetting that and It's a it's a parent as we all commemorating nine eleven. And you know there's been a lot of talk. We remember how we all came together as Americans back then it would just loved our country and everybody through American food who American flags everywhere and You know we definitely don't want another nine eleven back there but I want why we shouldn't need one right. It should just be the default you know we have our differences is but there are certain things that we appreciate about about our country

"Dan Crenshaw. The new congressman from Houston area. Yes. He's he has an patch. He was feel. I wasn't he. He's really cool guy. He dragged into something he got dragged into some fake news. So he's mining business and another a reported tweet by someone from the deeply reported New York time New York Times does not know how to use Google or read more than a sentence of a piece of paper because they could easily stop embarrassing themselves, but they just get get into all the time. So here's a story. John Stewart yesterday when in front of congress really blasted them for not repaying the nine eleven victims compensation. That was a hearing. Nobody showed up at the hearing, there's only a few people there, and he gave a really powerful rousing speech, basically just saying this should be reversed day should be sitting up where you are. And they should be asking you questions about why, you know, you're so incompetent and it was really good. So this guy from the New York Times his name was Johann. Lee tweets this out anytime a Republican says they are patriots asked them if they voted to fund the nine eleven victims compensation fund, you know, who's for it L Hon Omar, you know, who hasn't sponsored it, Dan. Crenshaw Homar, Mary food today is your she married, the two people. This UP even Star Tribune coming after her now, her hometown fanzine, so Dan Crenshaw tweet back. Hey journalists, and he puts journalists in quotes, maybe you should check your facts. I am a co-sponsor nice tribe. Oh, it's just so an incident response back. I deleted this, because Dan Crenshaw supported the funding may after being. A holdout apologies to him for the tweet. I have no problem admitting it. And correcting the record relax. For those of you trying to own me, especially as you still promote alternative facts. Enjoy tuesday. He promoted the alternative facts. And let it go. I know are just admit you're wrong, and let that I hate when they admit they're wrong, and then they say, like a part of journalism is making mistakes, and owning your mistakes. I don't need the lectures of the bills. Have, you know, at the top, it says, you know what the number of the Bill is then underneath it says the who, who sponsored by a lot of reading for them, though. You've officially like mind three lines deep and I don't think any of them are reading that much. I also wanna play. So as everyone knows Joe Biden is promising that he's going to cure cancer. Volt strategy. We'll see if it pays off for him, and joy. That's all that's all well and good, Mr Vice president. But what your stand on to- fungus? What's your, what's your stay? What are you going to do about the heartbreak of psoriasis? Yeah. Oh my God. Psoriasis is terrible. I mean it's not cancer level, but it you're right. It's bad is no fun either, especially if you're wearing black like you are today. I don't have any. He's just you know making that they have. I'm joy Behar was on the view and Meghan. Mccain was basically defending Joe Biden, but even when people are on the democrat side joyous. So Trump drained that she still has to bring up Trump and be a contrarian. Let's play cut twenty two this'll be.
President, President Trump And Congress discussed on Ben Shapiro
"On to President Trump and his emergency declaration. So the Senate voted yesterday to reject President Trump's emergency declaration immediately. Trump tweeted video all capital letters, the senate's resolution was passed fifty nine to forty one to overturn his national emergency declaration them saying we didn't delegate you this kind of power, and you are not allowed to simply overrule us by declaring a national emergency. And it does show that the national emergency power is to certain extent being abused. Because the fact is the national emergency act was designed to allow the president to act in the absence of congressional opinion making or weighing in the reasons declared national emergency is you don't actually have time to go to congress for the appropriations you just declare national emergency was the first time that I think has ever happened or congress has explicitly rejected national emergency declaration from the president the reason for that because the president negotiated with congress. He didn't get what he wanted. And then he declared a national. Emergency that is violation of the constitutional order. That is not how the constitution is supposed to work. President Trump said he was gonna veto this. He said I look forward to veto the just past democrat inspired resolution, which would open borders while increasing crime, drugs and trafficking in our country. I think all the strong Republicans who voted support border security and our desperately needed wall. Now, I know a lot of senators and members of the house who voted in favor of upholding the national emergency declaration. I don't think that was the right move. It only that was the constitutional move. And in fact, you saw a bunch of Republicans who switched their position on this simply because President Trump does have a massive amounts of support. The fact is that a bunch of senators flipped on this most prominently Senator Ben Sasse, Nebraska. He had said earlier, we absolutely have a crisis at the border as a constitutional conservative. I don't want a future democratic president unilaterally rewriting gun laws or climate policy. If we get used to presidents just declaring an emergency anytime, they can't get what they want from congress. It will be almost impossible to go back to a constitutional system of checks and balances over the past decades the legislative branch. Given away too much power. And the executive branch has taken too much power that seems like a pretty good predicate for voting against the national emergency declaration. And then he voted in favor of the national emergency declaration. He said the reason he did. So is because he and Mike Lee had put forward a Bill that would have curbed generally the power to declare a national emergency. And that Bill had not been had not been agreed to by the president. Well, then why are you voting with him on this national emergency? That's still doesn't answer the question. The fact is this national emergency to one being declared right now is not in fact, legally national emergency. It is a national emergency in the common parlance, it is something that congress ought to do something about we ought to have a wall. The president doesn't get to overstep his injuries. 'cause he's doing something you like the measure of a principle is whether if the violation of the principle accomplishes, something that you want your for it or against it. So if you have a principal, and then it turns out that tossing out the principal in order to get something done appeals to you. So you toss out the principal. Then you're. Really didn't have the principal to begin with. You had a politics of convenience. It's not just Senator SAS who flipped on this sort of thing. Senator Thom Tillis wrote a full op Ed saying that he was not in favor of the national emergency declaration. He announced he would vote to terminate the national emergency declaration, and then he changed his mind and voted against terminating the national emergency declaration. And listen, I understand that. There is severe pressure on the senators from people who are sitting home and who are thinking. Okay. Well, all this really comes down to his do you wanna protect the border or not? But that is a failure educate your own voters, which is part of the job. There's been this move in national politics toward we will just appease whichever voters are in front of us. It's our job to give the voters what they want. Well, that's half your job the other half of your job is to help shape. What voters want it's a convince voters. It's go back home and give people the hard messages if you're not doing that. Then you're not acting as a good Representative. This is the difference between these sort of straight democratic representation model, and the Birkin model of representation had been Burke famously wrote that if you you're a Representative then it was not just your job to represent the temporary wishes of the public. It was your job to represent to act as as your own conscience. They elected you to use your own conscience. And if the people don't like it, then I suppose they can turn you out, but they should give you a solid. Listen. They should give you a solid. Listen again. I think Republican this should have passed with an overwhelming supermajority. It did not that is that his lack of principle on the part of a lot of Republicans, including many Republicans with whom I generally agree. I think there's a case to be made. I think that you've heard Representative Dan Crenshaw make that if you really believe. Leave that it is legal for the president to declare a national emergency under current powers. Then you vote in favor of this. But there are a bunch of people who said the president doesn't have those powers under the national emergencies act, and then they voted in favor of the president exercising powers. He doesn't have that's bad. And I ache the excuses. Listen, I hear the excuses the excuse that Democrats would do this. We'll do the exact same thing. That's true. That's why I'm not a democrat. It is true. Democrats would go along with violations of the constitutional order, which is why again, I am not a

"A strong. Wasn't it? Speaking of strong. Dan crenshaw? Texas, congressman, my congressman his district schooling Democrats on taxes, and you Mr Chairman, thank you all for being here. Thank all our witnesses again and always wanna remind everyone what we're really here talking about. We're talking about a difference in philosophy tax rates. The question of whether the government should be taking more of your money, or whether you should keep more of your money. Difference in the role of government. What we believe it seems to me that you all believe that the role of government is to tax the people as much as possible. So that you and your fellow academics can dream up more programs for for the government's the money on. I don't believe that. I don't believe that's what the role of government is for role of government is to protect God given rights that we have and to ensure that we live as free as possible role of government is to tax the least extent possible while still taxing them enough to cover basic needs for governments. And if we're questioning what those needs are. We can just look at our constitution. They're generally pretty clear there. So that's what today's about. These anecdotes are imaginative. It's literally not imagination to bring up anecdotes, literally not that. It's reality. Here's some reality from Texas. Direct results from the tax cuts and jobs at McDonalds increased educational opportunities by one hundred and fifty million dollars.

"We're making our way to the weekend will review all the weekend events happening here in the bay area. It all starts at five AM on an Tampa Bay. So what do you think Dan Crenshaw? I mean, I I've I hesitate to fall in love with politicians in the end. But I, but I want to fall in love with him. Yeah. He's great. So far. He's great. And I like the he's not doing the typical politician stuff. You know, he's he's standing up for principle. He is taken stands that are unpopular. I like the I I love the way he handled the whole Saturday life thing. It wasn't like, oh, I got called a name I can easily take advantage of this on the winning side of this victim battle, right? And said he was like, you know, everybody makes jokes. And you know, it's we should watch. What we do. But we shouldn't all get hurt. Our feelings hurt every single time. Someone makes a joke. You know, the right way to respond. The worst. Violators of the constitution far is size of government is usually a retired veteran. When they go to congress. They usually become the worst because they're used to they're used to the government. You know, they've they've served in the military. And so they're used to the government you're saying as far as like spending issues. Yeah. The growth of government, right? Okay. Like, John McCain this grow the government, just keep growing the governor. Which is again, like, you know, the the the as a great example of this. It's like it's so backwards as a society, we're like, well, here's our most important citizens. Let's give them the crappiest healthcare available. Relax, give them the system of government that the system of healthcare that other countries were fighting against half. They deserve a separate government. Run piece of crap system instead of participating in the really good one that we have. Well, anyway, here he is Dan Crenshaw on why the left hates tax cuts. Listen to this wanna remind every what we're really here talking about. We're talking about a difference in philosophy just tax rates..

"And after World War Two like get fucking serious here. So yeah, I mean, I'm going to have to disagree with Dan. And but I mean, Dan also did not really elaborate too much there. I mean, that's a very bland statement to add to this too. So that was a post on Twitter because I realized I remembered there was more to it. Okay. This was I mean, it's not much more. But this was the caption he wrote for that, you know, screen shot at post on Instagram, which is at Dan Crenshaw Teac, thus far the president has found the right balance for our wars avoid nation building while keeping special operations presence to maintain pressure on a very much alive. Enemy police do not veer from. This course, Mr President our troops. Sacrifices must not be in vain. Well, I'm not sure it's so much Donald Trump's position. I think he inherited these wars. I don't think he feels any obligation to sustain them because it's Donald Trump. You know, he was outside or he ran on that he never made these he was not a politician previously to this. So he wasn't making these decisions like, let's invade this country or that country. So I don't think he feels morally or ideology tethered to these wars and the same way that maybe somebody like, you know, a George Bush or Bill Clinton might. But that said, I think Trump inherited these wars, and he is to some extent a victim of the institution. He be sports for he's a president. He's not a dictator, and I think he would pull us out if he could. But he's finding out what a quagmire that is. Yeah. And also when I read that caption, it's one of those strange things because Dan Crenshaw is a guy who's fought in these wars. Dan, Crenshaw is a guy who nearly made the ultimate sacrifice. He. And you know, it does make me wonder from that perspective. Is it, you know, was of the idea of this all done in vain that that hits home. Well, I mean, that's the sunk cost fallacy the idea that we have already poured so much into it. So we need to keep pouring more and more into it. I mean, it's like Vietnam, you know, just keep sending more and more troops. And in the end, it's a strategic defeat. Anyway, how many American lives we keep throwing away on a hopeless endeavor? At some point you have to make the mature decision. Even though we served in this conflict, Dan, and I both did we both have our heart or hearts in it. We are blood, sweat and tears invested in it. What how many generations of future Americans? Do we condemn to the same fate simply because we we have trouble. Let go, you know. It's kind of interesting to me is that Dan crank position at least from that tweet and Instagram post is actually almost the opposite of a guy like Mark boy out who we had on who's like we need today shin. Bill, I feel like we need to stay there for several generations. But in the same way, we've had a presence in and other places and Dan crunch is saying we need to be there. But we don't need the nation. Right. Which means the problem goes on forever because these insurgencies will go on forever until the local issues are resolved issues of corruption poverty, all of these things about involve the the nation state has to resolve or at least attempt to address for people. So if you're not going to resolve those issues that just means the insurgency goes on. Indefinitely. So my question for someone like, Dan Crenshaw would be what is America's national interests in each of these countries where we have troops deployed, and what is what is your strategy? What is your plan? And what is the endgame that you're hoping to accomplish here? And by the way, he he addressed this on the podcast with us. You know, I it's been awhile since I heard it before making that bash. But while I was making the best of you know, he made the same exact argument with you. And when you said like, how long do we stay there are we there forever? And I remember dancer sponsors. Like, we've got a presence in Germany. We've had a presence in Japan. Yeah..

"And I think it's really been affective. Now that doesn't mean the ideology is going away anytime soon, I if anything it's it's still very much alive. They simply don't hold territory, and you know, you you fight that by. Really removing the conversation away from arbitrary timelines and arbitrary troop levels. You know, we have to get we have we have to have people in leadership positions who are dishonest with the American voter and say, listen, if you wanted to feed these things you have to maintain a presence, you cannot have power vacuums and stay like have ghanistan or Iraq or Yemen. You just can't you know, and you cannot pretend we can like an ostrich like we stick our head in the sand. And then nothing going on out there. That's just unrealistic deployments. No ended site. Yeah. I'm in for the future. There might be an end. I mean, but you know, American troops have been in South Korea and Germany Japan since the Korean war and World War Two. And these this thing turned out. Well, and I'm not saying those countries are really comparable to Iraq and Afghanistan. But but we do have pretty good evidence. Very very good of it. What happens when you do leave? Our vacuums you get ISIS, and you get nine you got nine eleven we know that already. Now, we don't that doesn't mean we need a hundred two hundred thousand troops nation-building. I I think we've we've tried that experiment. And it's I don't think American people have the patience for it. It was an honor to have Dan Crenshaw on before he became who. He is today. As a lot of people are saying, he's a future guy to look out for in politics in general. So thanks for coming onto, Dan.

I mean, I saw tweet from Kansas Owens, calling him the future of the Republican party and ever since he's been elected to congress. He's a name that people know really ever since the SNL Debarak, oh, which led to a really funny, but also touching moment for America where people got together and put their differences aside. So this is Dan Crenshaw when he was on with us. And we had a really candid discussion as you'll hear. I mean, we had a Frank discussion. About foreign policy which Jack got into with, Dan. And we also hear about him losing his eye in combat and leaving the military to go back to school. Also, the process of running for office, huge congrats Dan on becoming a member of congress.

Awesome. Well, the first thing I was going to ask you about before we get into like any real questions. I was just out of curiosity. Drew wallace. Who runs all of our stuff or software TV is the one who made the connection. So I was wondering how you go back withdrew. And then also Jason candidates are our head of brand I've met, Dan. He's a solid guy. So hearing good things about you. Gotta take great guys Drouin. I had to get connected to another mutual friend that hopefully. We just hit it off for well, you know, and despite his ranger background. But no, great great guy. And and I'm going to see doing well working with y'all now. But I talked to them a lot of Oakley, and it took a special interest in me and feeling sorry for me and giving me sunglasses. What I needed? You know, my my one good. I needs to be specially protected it's pretty sensitive light. So they they helped me out a lot with that. Hey, dan. It's jack. Thanks for coming on the show that hey, thank you, Jack. Thanks for having me. I guess a good way to start. This interview today is I want to ask you. So what made you decide to run for congress? I mean, you have this pretty incredible background in the military and then go to Harvard, and then what was this just sort of like the natural next step for you. Not initially. But not something. I hadn't thought of you know, we we we had this me and my wife in the past and the real question. How do you how do you make an impact? How do you continue making an impact? No my entire life. At wanna be ABCL really since age twelve read a book, and you're hooked and your adventure and the patriotism and the elitism of it. And that's what I wanted to do. And so when that's all sort of wrapping up and coming to an end, what do you do with your life? And you know, I knew a couple of things that I really can't get up in the morning for anything, but doesn't really give sensus illness and still teams. I think did that for me. And and I think they did that because of the the the intensity of it, the the impact that you that you're having and you know, that that occasion of public service and serving our country and the way that makes you feel. And the good you see it does for your country. And how critical it is. And I think the tunnel ways to serve your country. And so I think the way I do as best. I, you know, sir.

"Out to Pete Davidson after Davidson, posted a note, Saturday on social media to indicate suicidal thoughts Crenshaw revealed during an appearance on K P R C two that he talked to Pete Davidson, he says it was pretty devastating. You don't wanna see somebody in that position to two point where they're actually putting out a cry for help on social media. Now, that's not a good place to be in. I talked to him personally yesterday. And I talked to him for a little about it. You know, we don't go back very far. We're not good friends. But I think he appreciated hearing from me. He says what I told him is this everybody has a purpose in this world. Got puts you here for a reason. I really don't want to be on this earth anymore. Davidson wrote I'm doing my best to stay here for you. But I actually don't know how much longer I can last all I've ever tried to do was help people. Just remember I told you so and so after that. Crenshaw saw then called him. And I don't know what they talked him off the legs. But earlier this month Pete Davidson reveal that he has struggled with borderline personality disorder and back in November. It was of course, Davidson mocking Crenshaw for wearing an eye.

Crenshaw joined FOX and was asked his reaction to SNL making fun of him. Well, they probably should apologize. But that doesn't mean I'm going to demand an apology. I don't want to demand an apology that is hollow and empty. I do think that in today's culture, and today's politics, we tend to throw rocks at each other back and forth demanding apologies for every upset that has done to us. Now, they certainly crossed the line. But their apology won't mean anything to me. I think what they should do is pull their money together and donate some veterans charities out there that could really use some help. This is
