I'm not GonNa go that far that far with it but dad Cranchi war hero all around good guy like good sense of humor right plus the the only tough part about Dan Crenshaw is.

"I don't believe that anybody would call me out for that and I should be called out if I had taken that money. I really believe that just because I was already getting benefits right. I'm not saying it shouldn't get anything blown up and then had to get out of the navy as a result but but I but I feel our cultures a little bit backwards on this and it worries me. A GREAT DEAL WE'VE CHANGED. We've changed a few definitions what it means to be a victim. I think we've changed that definition overwhelmingly and we've changed the definition of justice also an injustice. In what an injustice actually is we've forgotten how to we've forgotten how to distinguish between discrimination and disparities like just because you don't have the same thing does that effectively mean there was some injustice. That occurred there. We're not asking those analytical questions and I think that's a real problem. It's it's made debate very difficult. It's it's made debate with my colleagues in the Democratic Party very difficult because every disparity is assumed to be originating from some kind of injustice know every time somebody is wealthier than somebody else. The assumption nowadays is that will gotten money and that there's some kind of injustice that occurred. You know when we were when we're voting on this giant stimulus package not really stimulus package worth of rescue package. Remember how this happened. There was you know we're negotiating through this thing and it was actually looking pretty good. Nancy Pelosi comes in says hell no blown up the whole thing and we're going to protect workers and damned you know not these damn corporations okay so you fast forward a few days passing basically the same bill anyway. That's a long story. I'm happy to go into the details of that politically if you'd likely to but the point is this there was outrage from the populace rights and the populist left against anything that have the Name Corporation attached to it. And we've forgotten how to ask ourselves. Why is that? What did they do something? Evil what what. What exactly is evil about these entities you know they. They employ lots of people to create lots of wealth in this particular case. We're not being bailed out. They didn't do anything wrong. But we're really mad at them for some reason. We really hate them. Because there's a sort of cultural movement towards towards feeling that anytime something is successful like our reaction should be to punish it and that cultural movement worries muted Great Deal. It worries me great deal. I think that's what leads to these sort of topics of social well. I think that that is one of the bad aspects of the ideals of socialism. Is this inclination to think that when there is an inequality inequality is because of either corrup- corruption or greed. There's also inequality of effort. People do not put in the same effort and when you put in more effort you're more focused. You're more disciplined. You do more work. You should be rewarded. And there's people that don't that idea and they don't like that idea because they're fucking lazy and their week and that's a fact and there's people in this world that are weak and unpopular thing to say because we want to say that no they're they're economically disenfranchised in some people are yes some people are and there's also some people that work like a motherfucker and those people get by and they get ahead and those people should be rewarded for their effort. One of the problems that I have with people that a spouse socialist ideals is that they don't want this competition aspect of our culture and our society to exist where you put in more work. You get more reward. That's my whole life. That is my whole life. I mean every everything that I've ever done I realized. Oh all you have to do is work harder than everybody else. All you have to do is put in more time. All you have to do is be more obsessed more focused and you can get by. You can get ahead well. The people that don't like that or the people that don't like competition they don't understand it. It makes you feel bad when you lose. Everyone should get a trophy. Everyone should get a participation trophy that is a giant problem with our culture and this inequality. Yeah there is Income inequality some of it is corruption. Some of IT IS BAD. Some of it is inequality of effort and that needs to be addressed as well. And it's not this blanket thing that all the people that run corporations are greedy. And all the money that they have acquired is because of ill-gotten gains. It's just not true. It's not true and it's anti-american frankly I list a few Tenants of a culture that make it a sustainable successful culture. I one is personal. Responsibility went into detail on that. The second one is mental toughness was I wrote a whole book about so in. It's important for you. You said it exactly how I describe it when I give speeches on this. Which is we need mental toughness because otherwise how do we survive in a free society where we have to compete because the only alternative to a bunch of mentally weak people is that we do live in society where competition? It's not necessary because the government will give you everything but I don't WanNa live that society and frankly that society can't function very well fix nobody would actually do anything and you have to be mentally tough to deal with that and I think the American spirit numeric our history as culture is a really really tough bunch of people and I just want to remind people of that and I wanNA remind people that it's something to aspire to like. This is a good thing like it's cool to be tougher. It's not cool to be a victim but we have so many like post modernists. Who actually again. This goes back to the victimhood culture. They want you to be that victim. And then they'll celebrate you for it will tell their victim stories cheered but it's like what are you saying? Where's the where's the part where you overcame it? I thought that was the story was supposed to cheer well. They also connect the also connect competition with cruelty. And I think that's foolish as well him yet. Feels bad to lose. But that's just because it feels great to win. There's IT'S A it's a peak in a valley thing and you have to understand that and look every competition that I've ever had any anything wherever competed and lost has fueled me beyond measure. It is what gets you buy. It's what makes you better. I mean one of the reasons why I understand. This is because martial arts in martial arts you have to train with the best people you can and it's fucking sucks. You get your ass kicked. It's part of the but that's what makes you better. You need those people you love those people they become your brothers. It's very very very important. The bonds that are formed in Jujitsu Gym's and kickboxing gyms and martial arts. Gyms with the people that you train the men and women that you train with this is an intensity to those bonds. That's almost indescribable to anybody. That hasn't experienced it. I mean I'm sure it's not as tight as people have gone through combat together. But there's something something in those people they fuel you. They help you and they help you but trying to kick your ass. They help you by trying to be better than you. They help you trying to be the man they they want to be the best they can be and you think about those mother fuckers when you go to the gym you go God. Damnit Mike is here. Shut and you get fired up for that person that you know is going to kick your ass and they provide you with fuel. People that are better than you provide you with. Fuel Competition Provide you with fuel. It doesn't mean you have to be mean it doesn't mean it's cruel. It doesn't mean it's insensitive. It doesn't mean it doesn't mean that it just means that competition is good. Competition is good for you. It's good shows you your better abilities. It shows you that you can aspire to greatness. You can aspire to be better than you are. You can do this and you can do this by looking at people who also do it they are. Your Fuel. Inspiration is fuel. Nobody GETS INSPIRED BY JESSE. Smollet putting a fucking fake noose around his neck and walking into a hotel still holding a subway sandwich. Nobody's inspired by that. Maybe you're inspired to never be that and that. But it's a week inspiration. You're inspired by greatness. You're inspired by great people stories. Great People's autobiographies and documentaries and stories of them putting in that work. I mean that. That's why so many people that their instagram existence is essentially. Just all they doing is just providing inspiration people like David. Duggan's that fucking every day. I mean that guy is fueling millions of people just by being a bad ass. Just just life is hard motherfucker. Stay hard and just running every day. We just by doing that. Okay I I don't know him sir. Who is WHO's filming these. Because his wife she brought something she's in a car all but there's been other instances where he's like climbing mouse. I don't know it's a very. It's a very smooth. Maybe she has a stabiliser. I guess Oh yeah. There's there's been some instances where I'm like okay. This seems like a car but this seems impossible to film and without like some some better equipment than just like a cell phone video you know. Well he's got a lot of money. I mean he sold the shit out of that book. So it's a fantastic book and I can't recommend it enough and you can't hurt me. It's called and the Audio version is even better because the audio version actually had somebody else to read it but then he comes in between and discusses each and every chapter. So it's like the audio book and a podcast. Together he lives incredible life and he's that guy is an amazing source of fuel for people but is an amazing source of fuel because of his own competition with himself. And he's a guy that's talked really openly about being weak at certain points in his life and being fat lazy and that he got through that he's he wasn't born this fucking warrior that came out of the womb running one hundred miles. He became that person. It became that person from being a SLOB. And he's real open about it and he's he's even open about his own weakness. Currently he's like sometimes. I'll stare at my fucking shoes for a half hour before I run my shit. I don't WanNa do this. Fuck but go out and do it. And while he's doing it he'll yell that people like that or fuel and there's certain people that don't like people like that because they make them feel bad they look at themselves and they go God damnit. I don't work as hard as that. Guy. I don't have that kind of mental toughness and then trying to find something wrong with it. But it's because they're they're not willing to look at themselves objectively. They're not willing to try to be the best person that they can be. Yeah I agree with that. I want to introduce you the hill. Yeah Yeah where does he look? He's now.
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

"Things that will trigger word you and your schooling union you and your maps man off anyway understand part something like that you know it is very obvious this is Dan Crenshaw speaking in his bloom. This is this is what Dan Crenshaw thinks. Right I don't understand. Tearing them apart and know a lot of it is probably stuff. I've talked about before. So you know I don't know I mean it's it's will happen. It's kind of depends on what interviews you do. I'm sure I've I've watched you know. Jordan Peterson and Ben Shapiro. Go on like you read their books and they really shouldn't be controversial mazing. How people deliberately take things out of context and deliberately refused to give any benefit of the doubt. It's quite strange but you know. Wait till they read my book. Wait it's go into it just expecting Sunday. Yeah and in definitely being politician probably peruse through it more carefully in like. Let's take out that way. You know it's not necessary to make. That doesn't actually ride in tribute to the broader points. So why so I mean yeah I mean I poke the bear because the goal is not provocation. Would that would be literally. That's not provocation. I mean like I said I the last chapter you know I I really pick apart progressivism which I do all the time. I'm a conservative politician But but I tell you why you know and I'm telling you what the point of this is and and and and and how we should review our culture and and and the dangers that we should be observing and how. It's changing the story of America that we're telling and so it's Yeah I hope it's not. It doesn't trigger anybody sick somebody anyway. All right so we know that you're on a tight schedule here so inclosing closing for this book if you if you had to give the future readers. What's the outcome you want from someone reading your book? What do you hope that they come out of reading a book with a two things because it's again it's largely an individual book and it's also a cultural book and so we're we're we're walking both lines there and so? I hope that one of these lessons sticks with you right. And there's again every chapter is like a different lesson. A different way of thinking about overcoming hardship or living your daily life with fortitude. Right so so maybe ninety percent of it doesn't speak to you but I bet one thing. Well maybe two or three for grand probably all of it. Yes it is. Yeah.

Like most people don't even know what a covert action mission is what it means. What a presidential finding is. This is a really cool stuff. Frankly and it's written about in like a million but we're not here to publicize other. We're here talk about your book. So so so. The name of the book was actually the hardest thing. I knew it was going to be about mental toughness and I knew I wanted each chapter to basically be a lesson and mental toughness. Those lessons being derived from the seal team's derived from from basic psychology from history from pop culture and It at first it was. It was sort of pitched as a spin off of the whole Davison Saturday night. Live thing which is timely. As.

This has happened <Speech_Male> many many <Speech_Music_Male> sometimes. <Speech_Music_Male> It just happens in <Speech_Music_Male> an and especially <Speech_Music_Male> happens when we're we're <Speech_Music_Male> Less busy <Speech_Music_Male> when there's <Speech_Male> more in peacetime <Speech_Male> and this is <Speech_Male> I <Speech_Male> realize that but this <Speech_Music_Male> is for the seal team's <Speech_Music_Male> peacetime <Speech_Male> Very <Speech_Male> few seals are in combat combat. <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Music_Male> are seeing combat <Speech_Music_Male> deployments <Speech_Male> and so <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> that <Speech_Male> that all of that combines <Speech_Male> to this <Speech_Male> what is maybe <Speech_Male> a bit of an overreaction action <Speech_Male> it doesn't mean you ignore <Speech_Male> the problems that <Speech_Male> exist it just <Speech_Male> means that you should be balanced <Speech_Male> about it <Speech_Male> and be honest <Speech_Male> about what's happening. <Speech_Male> What isn't happening <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> so <Speech_Male> so I didn't really give <Speech_Male> you an answer right? <Speech_Male> I <Speech_Male> noticed that it <Speech_Male> will because it's nuanced <Speech_Music_Male> ended. There is no <Speech_Music_Male> yes or no answers <Speech_Music_Male> there. Is there a disciplinary <Speech_Male> problem. <Speech_Male> So just because a flag slag <Speech_Male> off era orders and <Speech_Male> review and says there's a <Speech_Music_Male> problem <SpeakerChange> doesn't mean there <Speech_Music_Male> is one <Speech_Male> not <Speech_Male> to the extent that maybe <Speech_Male> journals <Speech_Male> writing about <Speech_Male> it. You know <Speech_Male> it's <Speech_Male> a little overblown <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Music_Male> again I'm not <Speech_Music_Male> in it either. <Speech_Male> So it's a little. <Speech_Male> It's also a little hard <Speech_Male> for me to answer because <Speech_Male> again. I don't have the numbers <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> I don't. <SpeakerChange> I'm not seeing <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> exactly what's happening. PUT <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> PUT IT in context. <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> You're a member of Congress. <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> You have the ability <Speech_Male> to pick up the phone <Speech_Male> to call anyone <Speech_Music_Male> to request <Speech_Music_Male> any data set <Speech_Male> and as a seal <Speech_Male> yourself it <Speech_Music_Male> does not rise the <Speech_Music_Male> level of intensity <Speech_Music_Male> for you right <Speech_Music_Male> when I talked to officers <Speech_Male> and when <Speech_Male> I talked to my old <Speech_Male> friends who are <Speech_Male> obviously much lower <Speech_Music_Male> than flag officers. <Speech_Music_Male> I get different <Speech_Male> stories. <Speech_Male> It's a complex <Speech_Male> organization right. <Speech_Male> And you're trying to. <Speech_Male> If you're trying to <Speech_Male> generalize a <Speech_Male> problem <Speech_Male> well then if you <Speech_Male> talk to different people <Speech_Male> at different levels <Speech_Male> of of the commands hands. <Speech_Male> You're <Speech_Male> going to get different answers <Speech_Male> just like you would with any <Speech_Male> organization so <Speech_Male> we <Speech_Male> have.

House approves resolution to limit Trump's war powers on Iran
"More obstruction from house Democrats approving a resolution to limit to president trump's war powers trump supporter Matt gats was one of three Republicans across party lines so with his vote I think this war powers resolution was worthy of support because it did not criticize the president did not say he was wrong and killing stole money that was gets on socks the president told supporters at a rally in Ohio he did the right thing and it is rampage through not only that part of the world but much bigger parts of the world he was all over he was a bad guy woodlands congressman Kevin Brady says a resolution by the Democrats in the house it's toothless it's non binding it's just an attempt to keep trying to make the president look bad Houston area congressman Dan Crenshaw he didn't mince words criticizing the speaker and is non binding war powers resolution the past yesterday the former navy seal offered his own resolution from the house floor general Soleimani was head of one of the most sophisticated terrorist organizations in the world that already committed numerous attacks against United States and plans to carry out many more within days Crenshaw says Democrats who are pushing to limit the president's authority in dealing with Iran they're casting stones from the ivory

"National anthem and And that's being chipped away at you know I see that and so the the broader culture wars and that worries me a great deal and We should show some gratitude for what we've got. I think there's there's a great. There's a great middle ground of we can say America's great and we love America and then we can simultaneously say America has things that we can that we can do better Dan. We're and we as citizens and as legislators were all going to work to make to make this great country even greater and we. I think that's where we all agree. And we're GONNA find on the right path to get there. Yeah yeah I I agree with that. And the problem is oftentimes people throw the baby out with the bathwater. You know and I think that's Maybe that's what makes me a conservative right. Like I look back in time and I look at what works and what doesn't accept that. We've we screwed up some things and I've just accept that we've been but it doesn't change the underlying principles that that make our our country's successful and you know and and You know Revolution the speak the talk of revolution and resistance since its romantic right. It's appealing to to to people especially younger people a lot And I would encourage all of us to to to to fight back against that. You know to ask why things are good and And not throw the baby out with bathwater we look at you know radical new policies. You know it's funny. You mentioned your conservative. You're not just a conservative because You are plenty all like so many of us who are coming up now and being more politically involved We had A. I don't know if you're a regular listener of the strategic but we had a really interesting conversation about millennials and and I'm a millennial and In a lot of our staff is and and what that means for us in terms of the Public Square and and how we lead our generation forward and and so I actually see a lot of divisiveness on social media and not a law in my actual neighborhood and amongst my friends and family even though we may have different political opinions. talked me a little bit about you know there. Is this perception. That congress is very divided Congress and get a lot done And it's bogged down but Shirley you have relationships across the Aisle Shirley you were working thing with People of all stripes in Congress and what are those relationships like behind closed doors. There's a lot more friendly relationships in Congress than I than I think people realize You know probably should do a better job of letting the American people know that would be helpful if the media would report on bills. That are bipartisan. Get past every single week. But they don't report on whatever sensationalized is thing happened that day And it is sort of people the wrong people the wrong impression about the good things that are happening and And the and the good work that does get don now. They're not you know we're not solving the big problems that's -sarily but but almost every well at least every week. There's there's lots of bipartisan bills. That get past you know and so uh which people would see that more. We would be remiss earlier today. You spoke to our to our a veteran leadership program scholars stand to scholars. And we'd be remiss. We didn't title of about one in the little time we got left about Some veteran stuff. And you know you're we. We love talking about veterans and how they and how we society can help them transition from the military and I think you're a great example of someone that's gone onto remarkable things once leaving the military. So how can we. How can we as a society help? People help these servicemen. Women continue their remarkable careers when they leave. It definitely not an easy problem to solve. I won't pretend that my transition was just You Know Sunshine and rainbows and easy like it was the kind of find yourself in a really bad place and I didn't have any regrets because I never. I knew I didn't want to leave the military. I fought very hard athlete. The military Eventually lost that battle. The navy realized they had one. I never yeah. They they didn't think I could deploy anymore so anyway but the point is that And I I'd recommend it a lot of veterans and there are service members. They say like I. I get that you might be sick of the military but but don't get out until something really pulling you out like have a plan You know that that's important. And and so so. How do we help them? Get that plan I think is is. There's the question there's so many companies out there was like veteran hiring services. There's so many nonprofits that try to work on that transition I think getting more efficient with those many many organizations is important of how we do that is for me work in progress and how we connect them with veterans In a longer period before they actually get out is the key there I don't really believe in and more government programs on this just because we're always bad it what we do and there's already so much resources out there We just have to organize those resources. Better and then let those resources stay outside of government. That's how they come by resources. I mean these is on profits. You know there's so many of and in these vso's like let's let them stay out of the of the government system because that's how they remain dynamic and and and efficient and some of them are very successful and so just making sure the connection happens I think is a big part of over. We're we're trying to do stand to is is is make. Sure that the the folks that are in these organizations that are helping veterans psychic. We make sure that they are. There's a lot of people that want to help veterans. Like how do we how. How do we mobilize all those people to to make sure that we're maximizing the desire that everybody has to help veterans like Haiku? How how do we do that? And that's that's the goal of that program and we're we're excited to do it to help people from every sector that want to help veterans. We WanNa make sure they do that. You know you've you've started doing a lot of interviews interview on Joe Rogan. Who knows what what other what other wonderful podcasts live we did we did a little more? I can't remember any of the other titles though because ours is only on the matters. I what is no one asked you that you wish they would. Nobody's ever asked me. What my favorite glass I to wear? I don't wait that's the first of a game. What's your favorite one in well? Is it like a store like we have rows of different ones. Yeah Yeah you know whatever your imagination runs with like that. That's how they look at it. It is kind of like A. It's like a secret door and you pull them out there like there's like a velvet backing to them all and this pick one out in So I I guess My favorite we're on is still might try it ends is still try to in in embedded in and like a few different is actually I have a blue one darker shade of blue a black one. those are. You're probably still my favorite captain. America one's definitely and I actually just got a brand new one which is begins all is battle flag from yes the come and take it cannon? Yeah Balance Balance Pretty cool the other question. Sorry continue well no one of our we. We've we've had. I've been lucky enough to get to interact a lot of our team. forty-three guys and those are the the guys that have been injured injured in their service than are either playing golf in our in our warrior. We're open golf tournament or play Writing Mountain Bikes with President Bush. W One hundred and I remember This gentleman had this amazing American flag. Glass I those. That was just absolutely beautiful. Like you'd look you'd be having conversation with them and looking at this flagging in his eye and it was it was really great big and it symbolizes. What so many of these guys said which was the same as you they? They were injured. They were injured and there wasn't about how well. How do I get home? It was about. How do we get back to battle and your the way you described it as what every every one of these guys? I've ever talked to says to that. It was it was all about. Just how do I get back to my comrades and You know it. It didn't matter what the injury was they they all had the kind of that same mindset which is so. It's amazing to watch appreciate that now.

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 and Those things are embodied are symbols. The flag the.

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" Discussed on Dear America with Graham Allen Podcast
"We've been talking about this for a very very very long time. I do not agree with red. Flag lost me and Dan Crenshaw have talked about this in depth. We've talked about it in private. I've even gone on air and on other media outlets to say that I think red flag laws or a bad idea me and Dan realized that we differ slightly on on this issue. I don't necessarily think that Dan Crenshaw minute the way that it came out however there are just certain roads that you cannot go down in my opinion and red flag. Mike laws are one however the comment that bothered me the most and this is what I really want. You guys to think about as you drive down the road as you work out out whatever it is that you're doing people said. Why in the world. Are you associating with that trader. Why are you doing this. Why are you doing that a month and a half half ago. Dan Crenshaw was the chosen one. He was the next up he was the savior of the Republican Party. After Donald Trump one tweet has changed a lot. The People's minds about that and I don't know maybe it did. Maybe it didn't that's not for me to decide but here's what I do know. Is that in our lifetimes we're never going. I do agree with someone one hundred percent of the time on anything no matter how together or aligned you think that you are in fact danker and Shaul says there's a lot if you get it a table with eight to ten of your closest friends. You know these people better than anyone and they know you better than anybody else but you try to solve some of the world's greatest problems like healthcare and let's see how much you actually agree on how that's going to take place. The simple fact act is none of us agree one hundred percent on everything and that's okay we can agree to disagree on certain things and honestly we can truly you hate an idea that someone has but to simply sit there and say that you can no longer associated with people that you don't agree with then as a conservative speaking speaking to conservatives you doing the exact same thing that we accused the left of doing because the left never talked to anyone who doesn't agree one hundred percent with what they are saying so that's why we took this event with. Dan Crenshaw maintain crenshaw friends we will continue to be friends long after he becomes president eh or decides to not do it anymore. I don't know me and Dana friends and that's that won't change and I think that we could use a little bit more of that in our society and and especially with our own party so that's dealing with the criticism going back to what I felt for this event. I really loved it because the news would would. Have you believe that the young Americans are in this realm of hating America or not loving America are not being appreciative appreciative for America but what I witnessed on Sunday was a large large almost two thousand in high school to College Young Americans. I always want to call them kids but they're not kids take their Saturday and go to an event and listen about about politics and conservative values and they were excited about it. They were invested they were. They were in tune with what was going on. They were truly truly cared about what the future holds and what it means for them and what they can do even had a young man. You heard him. Ask what can he do when he can't even vote yet to have his voice heard those are really powerful questions and there's so much smarter than I was. When I was a kid. I was pretty dumb. I'm not the smartest guy now but I think it's shows that Gen. Z. Has the opportunity to be the most conservative generation ever and I for one. I'm very excited about the future not not to mention the eight the next eighteen months with the presidential election for twenty twenty but this new generation ration- actually gives me a lot more hope than the current generation and I think that that is exactly the way that it's supposed to be that's all we have for this episode of the Dear America podcast. If you liked hearing the live editions let us know this was Dan Crenshaw's event but what we want to do is we want to actually take dear America on the road. Have the table setup have extra microphones set up events and let you guys be a part of the show. Bring people on bring people to come sit down and ask questions have guessed and also have you come on the show as well if you'd I'd like that be sure to leave us a review in the APP of whatever you're listening to this podcast on because we want to give you the show that that you want Jake Elizer not here so today I sign off with just myself. Thanks so much for listening to this episode of the Dear America podcast I Ryan Grim Allen and we'll see you all again next time..
"dan crenshaw" Discussed on Dear America with Graham Allen Podcast
"That's what they want you to believe but the actual number is forty thousand gun related deaths which the vast majority are from suicide and so again. I say say it every night into the truth of the problem. I believe out but they want you to live in fear that you can't go to Walmart that you can't go to your church. Suit your hospitals. They want you to believe that every single day some bad person with a military full semiautomatic which as a made up term policewoman fully semi automatic rifle is going in there and it's in his hunting people down whereas in one weekend kin in Chicago where we have gun violence and gun deaths as well so it goes to the fact you can make having weapons illegal. The criminals aren't going macaire what we really have and I say this. Some people disagree with me. I don't think we have a gun problem. I think we have a people problem and I think we have a local health across that we need to address but definitely tell a law abiding gun loving good Americans cricket that we'RE GONNA. Take your guns away from you and good luck with that. It's not gonNa work so maybe maybe what we'll do. I want to throw out a number two point six six percent okay. That's that's the number the first person to a microphone that can tell me the significance of that number as it relates to this topic get assigned t-shirt two point six. He's like Japan. The voice six six percent represents the amount of desperate fifteen year. That's right. Actually it's just all rifles yeah all right community. Cirque de the shabby that gets at the point late. Let's put this problem into perspective. What's up a discussion about the truth of the issue and then because here's the the thing okay. Let's say let's say you made all disappear just like that. You know let's let's agree even getting past the the huge problem with even confiscating them. Let's say they just disappeared appeared right now. Would that actually eliminate two point six six percent the deaths because you can easily substitute that is the point well right and what actually responsible for way more but here's the other thing. There's also a common argument that doesn't make sense as a self defense weapon. It's just that's totally untrue you know like when I go to the shooting range with my wife and she smaller. She's here somewhere around. He's amazing after after she shoots better than I do. there's the reason she can. She's much better with a rifle because there's three points of contact. It doesn't have the same kick to it. You can aim it easier. You scared try to aim a pistol just even across your living room in a in a dark scary environment. You're I'm not gonNA do that well. Not Everybody has the same kind of training the we do you know and they are is indeed a real self defense weapon with that with that. Let's through the questions here from you all happening. Mr Printshop my question is why are Democrats continuing to try to push the gun control troll idea when it's not working in their own cities. Let's let's tr just another argument pile of the plan another argument about why what they're saying think doesn't really make sense. you know some of the cities with with you know the most amount of I guess registrations requirements. It's still a ton of gun violence. The the other reality that people have to realize is that the vast majority of of of gun crimes are committed by a select group of people very small population generally incarcerated over and over again. It also occurs in a very tiny percentage of counties so there's there's very specific places we can look or violence is happening usually gang related or drug drug related and we can target that if we want to reduce overall deaths. I mean we have to be thinking about this problem systematically. Here's your first the first thing you should ask when somebody proposes. Some kind of solution is would it have stopped the last one really good question to ask. Would it have actually stopped the last one the vast majority of of the time. The answer is no. There's two other points does it protect the rights of law abiding citizens and would have stopped the last one meaning. Would it actually do good or or does it. Just feel good well. They got rid of the gun emoji right. Wasn't that supposed to stop yeah. We don't have a gun emoji anymore. I didn't even know they got rid of that. Yes a scorecard. I thought that was gonNA stop all the shootings virtue signal. I don't have anything to add to that or you. Want on the next God. No no that was great. It's almost like you're a congressman ourself. Hey do you think there is an US versus them ideology geology between Democrats and Republicans and not just Democrats aiding Republicans but vice versa Republicans hating Democrats. I think yeah unfortunately absolutely yes. I think I think I think it's diff-. It's there's an imbalance though so I think for the most part we talk about how wrong they are. I think for for the most part they talk about how bad we are morally bad we are and like you know you hear that in a lot of the arguments and that's frustrating. I never never attacked the character of my opponents. I never say that they're bad people or that. They have bad intent. I said they have really bad ideas. We talked about this on our podcast podcast a lot actually in our biggest thing if I if I say it wrong you guys can let me know. Basically we've lost the ability to agree to disagree in in this country and unfortunately what happens is. We live in this month's at nine. It works both ways. You know if you don't believe exactly what I I believe how I believe it then we have to be enemies and we can't be friends etc and that's not what America was supposed to be about in the first the going congressman question before you. I think we all kind of generally agree here. In Texas that we support our second amendment rights to bear arms and any or most of regulations on the second would be an infringement which would be unconstitutional. How would you appease our concerns with your new proposals on red flag like laws that it is not an infringement and that it is not taking away our rights to due process so a lot of people would think that that I'm like I actually have a proposal sponsored legislation. If you read the comments online you would think that of course I haven't what we're getting at. Is this you if your law-abiding citizen. You you shall not be infringed on period but if you are infringing on somebody else's rights we also agree as a society that your rights rights are no longer protected right just as basic foundation. That's why you go to jail. If you infringe on somebody else's life liberty or property you go to jail. We'd take away your liberty. If you're threatening somebody else. That's no longer protected. The question is how do you actually get to that point because if we all agree that good guys are good with guns good gals good with guns that guy's not so good with guns right. We agree on that really basic premise talking about properly constructed red flag laws. You're trying to get to that problem. Okay now the big problem with red flag laws as they exist now in many states is they don't project due process so we have that's that's unacceptable right and I've never supported and I've said that over and over again doesn't matter some people are triggered weeks. We get triggered to on the right. It's happened yeah yeah. We got to stop doing that that but I would never I would never propose anything that didn't protect due process and maybe we have to look at existing law for instance you can you can have somebody committed if they're if if they're showing real threatening behavior you know that has due process implemented within it but you know does the judge have the the ability to instead of incarcerating. Somebody simply make sure they don't have weapons but after they've gone through due process those are the kind of questions we have to be asking as conservatives and that's. I think the right balance it. What would be your statements on. We're doing what guys one question that Tyson will get to. Everybody situation nationwide the Santa. Fe shooting was done with shock on revolver. How do you prevent situations like that from home. I didn't hear that what was that the Santa. Fe sheeting shot gun a revolver a we are. How do you deal with that what I would like to say and again we are not in policy where we are not in DC and so this is just this is just us and things that we talk about is here's the here's the real hard truth that either you're you're pro gun or your antigun most people who are anti gun. They're like we've. He got to stop the shootings. We've gotTA stop. The murder got to stop the killings and the hard truth is no matter what gets passed no matter. What kind of legislation is pushed push down. You're never going to be able to stop everything and so the point is to protect at all costs the legal God given you've been right of every American to own and bear arms. That's it that's the fact that it was a revolver and a shotgun is is exactly you to white point about the two point six percent like you can just substitute it out and commit made a lot of damage with even different guns than than they are. We got time for a couple more everybody sitting down for some reason. They're dispersed yeah. We we still have a couple minutes. Scatter questions over here congressman unless question did this question is is addressed a little bit more specifically to what Mr Graham was mentioning earlier. You mentioned that guns are not the problem with that people are do you have suggested processes on how we should go about sixteen the problem as you call the NCAA Jeff I think also think of a sense of humility about what government can stop within a free society. You know if we listen. If if you really want governments perfectly safe it can just don't let you do anything literally nothing. We'll keep you safe. We'll feed you drug you up like a brave eight new world is that what people want of course not because at a certain point you start to remove human freedoms and you start to remove more importantly than that human purpose so first. It's a sense of humility about what we can accomplish and should accomplish and then it's remembering what government means what law means and what justice really is what is justice justice justice is the government preventing you from infringing on the Life Liberty or property of somebody else. That's why laws exist. It's like fundamentally mentally that's why they exist and we had to remember that role of government so we have to stop people from infringing on the rights of others and we have to empower a law enforcement to make sure that their understanding the signs that might lead to violence while also not infringing on those who are law abiding and not infringing on somebody else's life liberty and property. We got time for one last like shotgun question. Okay how howdy okay so so to speak. Geez why watch the twin of political shows in podcasts and when the question comes up to do how do we protect our rights and our freedoms. They say go vote for politicians who will do that but most of us here are high schoolers and we're not old enough to vote. So what can we do to make sure that we still have those freedoms that we believe in in the future your question you have parents the biggest biggest thing the biggest thing. I can say and I had this conversation back there. Is I believe that one of the situations that you have your your and people like that today is for the longest time conservatives have believed this thing. Just keep your head down. Just go to go to church. Mind your own business. Everything will eventually just equal out the way it is and I believe that we're seeing in today. You guys being here new Congressman Light Dan Crenshaw coming out using their influence for the right reasons. Stand up. have your have your voice heard. Even though your vote may not be counted yet. Have Your Voice heard let the world know where you stand in what you believe because God when you turn in eighteen you're rockin this thing grounded to because because I'm a social worker and I will tell you I went to Mississippi State hillstreet but they pump you with so much stuff that I was not prepared for from my tiny town new. I was pretty grounded which I'm thankful for. I would say very very grounded because I have seen so menia my friend split because it does make sense that is morally right when it's really not they just never had a grounding or thought about it logically so please stay grounded so you're able to attack it when you do get there because that's one of the biggest grounds you have going into college that there's some great partying advised. Please give it up for Graham and Allen. Thank you all right America. So now we are back in the studio and we really hope you guys enjoyed that live edition of the podcast cast. I thought it was a really cool event. I really love going in front of people especially younger people and having conversations but as I sit here alone in the studio Studio Eliza and Jake or not here I wanted to give you kind of a recap of everything that I thought and some of the criticism for redoing the event in the first place and so let's address the criticism first and foremost a lot of people are upset about Dan Crenshaw and the red flag laws..
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
"dan crenshaw" Discussed on SOFREP Radio
"Now, I'm saving this one for last when we had Dan Crenshaw on. He wasn't a name that everybody knew. Now, he really is. 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. And we're looking forward to seeing what he does this episode three sixteen. I'm thinking of Austin three sixteen Dan crunchers, pretty bad ass himself. So three sixteen Dan Crenshaw, check it out for the first time on with us. Dan, Crenshaw running for congress in the second district of Texas as a Republican former seal team three year combat that also reading your bio masters in public administration from the Harvard Kennedy School of government. So you've done more than just special operations, which is a lot in itself. Of course. Thanks for coming on, man. They have me. Fan of all things you guys put out. So it's an honor to be here. 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. Leadership's leadership I learned teams and bringing that kind of credibility and passion and Spiratou in congress, and you.
Congressman-elect Dan Crenshaw talked to 'SNL' star Pete Davidson following scary social media post
"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. Patch got negative backlash than Crenshaw went on the show Saturday Night Live the next week and accepted Davidson's apology in person the concert went on to provide funny, insulting captions photos of Davidson. So you never done you.
"dan crenshaw" Discussed on The News & Why It Matters
"You're gonna need it doesn't seem like crabs hitting the fan more often, especially in California. My God literally literally areas. Stew Saturday live. It is not usually funny and not usually giving you anything of value. I would say not a huge fan at this point. It's hard to tell. I mean, I I'm guy likes the show generally speaking as a show in history. I don't watch it that much anymore. Laughter. Yeah. It's it's really not going much. Anyway, we know the story with Pete Davidson, right? He's the guy who's comedian who who had a line about Dan Crenshaw. He is the veteran who had his eye. He lost his eye to eye, and he was making fun of him as like a JAMES BOND character and a porn movie or something like that. I don't know he had a bunch of lines about him. And he got a lot of heat last week about I think we talked about it on the show one day. And I absolutely loved is response to it because he was just like, look, you know, Crenshaw's response. He's like well. I don't I I don't think we need to be apologized demanding apologies from everybody. It wasn't a funny joke. But you know, we'll move on our lives in the grand scheme of things fifteen years ago. You would have made that joke. Yeah. I mean like again like it wasn't even the about. I don't mean us. I mean, it wasn't it wasn't. It wasn't mean spirited. It was in poor taste. But would not have been saying, you're all horrible despicable human being for that. Because I think you're right on that. And and I don't think people are thinking about it that way. I mean, the joke was only bad because of the context there was only bad because this guy because of the way he lost his eye service. It's because of him it's not because of the joke. The joke ended up at self was was not all that horrible. It was just I don't even know if you could make that joke teen years ago really seems like it's always been off. No joke. It's the target. Number eleven. I remember I mean, we made jokes. Remember when when Joe Biden said, I don't remember who it was guy who lost jock. Oh, dear God. Okay. Yeah. And we made fun of Joe Biden stand up Chuck has no legs, and he's in a wheelchair. So we made fun of that in fifteen years ago as long as it's not spirited. I think you could have gotten away part of it too. Was he Davidson knowledge he knew how he lost his I wasn't just blew it off and Bill blew it off. Look, it's he some liberal comic. But he this could have been a big deal about it. So let me give you two parts of what happened. So Crenshaw goes on Saturday Night Live and first of all you get part one was kind of an apology from Davidson, we're seeing a joke. I shouldn't have made, you know, obviously, I make horrible decisions all the time. I apologize. And then they bring on Dan Crenshaw. So first of all Dan gets a chance to take some shots at Davidson as a free free pass. And he pulls it off so brilliantly. He just great execution of this. And a great spirit. Let's watch that. I now I impressed with. Commander, Dan Crenshaw. Thanks call. This is Pete Davidson, he looks like if the meth from breaking bad was a person. So there were even all right? One more this. Looks like a troll doll with a tapeworm. That's good. We should wrap this up. This is fun. This is fun. Looks like Martin short in the Santa Claus. By the way. One of these people was actually good on us L. Right. Wrong. Very solid funny and really solid. Well executed and again like you could tell it really legitimately didn't bother them. But it goes to a second part where he kind of gives gets serious and talks about veterans and everything else. And I want to watch this. And then I want to draw attention to one particular moment here. Okay. But seriously, there's a lot of lessons to learn here. Not just that the left and right can still agree on some things. But also this Americans can forgive one another. We can remember what brings us together as a country and still see the good in each other..
