The Left's Love for Evil

"If you don't hate the left, again, not liberals. Liberals are naive, and naivete allows evil. They are not evil. If you don't hate evil, as the great book, the Bible puts it, those who love God, you, it's a command you must hate evil. There is a piece in The Daily Telegraph about what the left has done to the great state once great state of California. And I should read excerpts to you. I just want to note once again. The corruption involved in the raid, but the left has done to the FBI and the CIA and the DIA defense intelligence agency. Is what it is done to everything it touches it ruins it. I have to believe morality FBI among the regular rank and file FBI agents has to be low.

"Russia's goals in Ukraine remain massive but the reality of the ground right now could be more limiting for Vladimir Putin and his country That's what director of national intelligence Avril Haines tells the Senate armed services committee This morning CBS senior executive course this morning CBS senior investigative correspondent Catherine herridge on her testimony this week Well the director of national intelligence testified that Putin's military is consolidating its position in the Donbass region but it was described to lawmakers as just a temporary shift and that Russia's strategic goals remain unchanged and that essentially the two parties are locked in a war of attrition and the longer it goes on in the coming months the more likely it is that Putin will become unpredictable and the risk of escalation will also increase Catherine U.S. leaders are formally blaming Russia for a significant cyberattack Give us an idea of what's going on What was the target This was the first time that we have heard U.S. officials labeling with Russia for an attack on a U.S. satellite communications firm via set They said the goal of the Russians was to disrupt the command and control communications of Ukraine with its military on the ground but the attack had this ripple effect that affected networks outside of Ukraine So it's not an attack per se targeting the U.S. government but it was an attack that went after one of our interests Putin's military has taken a lot of losses which were pretty unexpected at the beginning of this What's the latest assessment on the number of Russian generals killed Well the testimony from the director of the defense intelligence agency So this is the group that has the big picture over a foreign government's military is that between 8 and ten Russian generals People in the leadership positions have been killed in Ukraine And that tells us a couple of things Number one it tells you how important this war is to Vladimir Putin that he'll take is very senior people and put them in harm's way on the front lines but it also tells you that they likely don't have high confidence that their troops can carry out the mission So that speaks to the idea that the Russian military may not be as effective as we had previously got Anything else that struck you I think this idea of attrition that both sides the Ukrainians and the Russians believe that they can prevail in the longer term And the longer this goes on and the more weakened Vladimir Putin becomes and his military this really raises the specter of escalation We talked on your network probably a couple of months ago now but this idea of the use of tactical nukes and this is part of their escalation ladder.

Sure. I served as a cine intelligence officer for Russian doctrine and strategy in the defense intelligence agency, which is the military counterpart to CIA. We provide support to our war fighters. And consequently, also to our commander in chief, who is in charge of our armed forces, I also worked with the central intelligence agencies national contestant service on the Russian target. So anything from Putin, his mindset, his goals. The national clandestine service, that's the renaming of the DO, the director of operations. So these aren't just the analysts, these are the actual offices who are doing operations overseas. 100% true. And I was proud to serve with these episodes that the most dedicated the most fearless and they are the ones who don't politicize intelligence that just want to do the mission and protect American people from foreign threats.

"Guys, I'd like to welcome back to the podcast Rebecca coughler. I had Rebecca on the show on March 23rd, Debbie reminds me. So about ten days ago and I meant to get into the discussion of the Ukraine war and we cover, we went down some fascinating trails, but we didn't even get there. So I thought, well, we got to have Rebecca back. Let me tell you a little bit about it. She's a Russian born U.S. intelligence expert. She's worked with the defense intelligence agency, the CIA, she's brief The Pentagon, The White House, and NATO, she's received the national intelligence professional award. She's also the author of this book. Putin's playbook. Russia's secret plan to defeat America Rebecca, welcome back. Thanks for joining me again. And we've got this war raging in Ukraine. Now, it seems to have lasted maybe longer than people expected and what I mean by this is I saw some early estimates which were attributed to intelligence officials, basically saying this was going to be like a three day or a 5 day war. I think they were expecting the Russians to be in Kyiv or Kyiv, that is apparently not happened. Were the original estimates off and why is it that the Russians who seem to be so much bigger and stronger than Ukraine having so much difficulty here? Yes, danesh, the estimates were completely off. And that is nothing new for the intelligence community. Remember, they were wrong on three key things. And this is just a recent recent fiasco. The intelligence community assessed that the Russians wanted to elect Donald Trump in 2016. Nothing can be further from the truth. Fear Trump. The Russians by intervening in our elections wanted to sow Discord and foment social unrest and polarized our society and regretfully our intelligence officials, the corrupt ones helped the Russians to do that. We're still polarized. Number two, you know, with regard to COVID origins, they did the same thing. They suppressed a very viable analytic line which did not align with the group thing. And believe me, the intelligence community is all about the groupthink. So what do we learn now is that COVID origins likely stand from a some biological weapons lab, right? So number Hunter Biden's laptop, 50 intelligence officials from the spy agencies, not one, not two, 50 dinesh. Signed a petition saying that Hunter Biden's lap laptop story was Russian disinformation. So are we surprised about this complete failure to understand the adversary, Vladimir Putin? So Rebecca, let's talk about the Hunter Biden laptop for just a minute because it's hard for me to believe that these 50 intelligence officials genuinely believed that it was Russian disinformation, right? Isn't it more likely that they had a political interest in Biden winning the election? Maybe they felt that Biden would be more protective of the deep state. And so in a sense, they went to work for Biden, didn't they? And put their credentials at his disposal to sort of make this story go away. And in fact, they helped it to go away because many people appeal to that many media sources said, well, look, if they say, these are the people who supposedly know, then we can write this off as we can justify not covering the laptop story because we don't want to be just replicating Russian disinformation. 100% dinesh, the intelligence officials, the corrupt ones and they are part of the deep state. Some people don't believe that such a thing exists, but it does. When you and when you're listening to finish my book, you will know what I mean by the deep state. And so just like the Russians sought to divide the United States, my adopted homeland, as you said, I was born and raised in the totalitarian state. In this manner, the corrupt intelligence leaders wanted also to divide America by hiding the information and effectively intervening in our democratic process, the electoral process. Imagine that they had just worse than the KGB basically. And it's the same people who are trying to democratize other countries. They are fighting right now, trying to help Ukraine become a democracy. They are destroying democracy in our own land. This is not the same country that I came to in 1989. Democracy is being eroded and becoming more and more as a word like a word with nothing real behind that. Rebecca, we'll come back to Ukraine in the next segment, but let me ask you about Russia because you were raised in Russia in the era of the Cold War. And what now in a post Cold War era. I remember going back to the 1970s and 80s gene cook Patrick whom you might remember was the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. She made an important distinction between authoritarian and totalitarian regimes, which as I understand it, that totalitarian regime tries to run your life from beginning to end. They care about what you eat. They care about how your family is organized. They want to tell you whether you should go to church, yes or no. They want you to only work in a certain sector that they assign to you, but an authoritarian regime is not like that. So if you think of say a Pinochet in Chile, he was an authoritarian dictator, he wanted to be in power. If you came out in the street to oppose him, he would send goons to beat you up, but he didn't care how you lived or what you ate or what religion you practice. That was an important to him. You could live your life normal. So the way I look at it is an authoritarian regime is a tyrannical regime, but it is not as tyrannical as a totalitarian regime. Could ask you to reflect on this distinction and apply it if it applies at all to the difference between, let's call it the old Soviet Union and Russia after the Cold War. Well, to be honest with you, to me, it's just semantics, dinesh, because I grew up there and perhaps you could describe the Soviet Union, the USSR, right?.

"Friday morning 43 at Reagan national 38° right now in Potomac And John currently in manassas were at 37 All right thanks a lot Ryan It's now 9 41 and as Russia's war on Ukraine enters its second month now There's been talk that the Russians may engage in cyberattacks against Western countries including of course here in the United States President Biden has been urging organizations to beef up cybersecurity Joining us now is Meredith Wilson the founder and chief executive officer of the corporate risk intelligence firm emergent risk international in a former employee of the defense intelligence agency Good morning Meredith you hear about enough hacks I'm not sure many people feel totally cybersecurity So how vulnerable are we Good morning You know it's interesting The U.S. is actually considered to be the most cybersecure country in the world at least by the international telecom union But we are never 100% safe There's always going to be vulnerability There's always going to be that next thing that an adversary can target holes in our cybersecurity that type of thing So we are more safe than a lot of places but we are also more targeted than a lot of places So there is no such thing as a 100% safety How prepared is the private sector for what could be coming The private sector is interesting I would say parts of the private sector are very well prepared Our critical infrastructure energy companies electricity companies a little less so but they're getting there They've worked a lot closer with the U.S. government over the last four or 5 years and that's helped immensely Again we can't rule out things like the Colonial Pipeline incident last year There will always be those vulnerabilities That's just the nature of our interconnected society But on that side I think we're in pretty good shape It's actually the smaller companies the medium sized companies the ones that don't have the financial wherewithal and maybe haven't caught the attention of the U.S. government yet in terms of being a vulnerability Those are the ones that are a little bit more concerning I think by now all of us know that we shouldn't be clicking links that we get from random emails that we're not necessarily expecting That sort of thing What else should individuals be doing At an individual level I guess in the Washington D.C. area maybe there is some targeting going on from Russia from cyberattacks But in the individual level we're most vulnerable when it comes to our passwords when it comes to holes in our in our programs So those very basic things that we hear over and over again but that people oftentimes fail to do updating you know when there's a new update that gets pushed out on your phone on your computer making sure that gets updated right away making sure that you have very secure passwords Downloading a password keeper whether it's using the key chain on a Mac or a program like dashlane that will actually keep those super secure and very high security passwords for you is a game changer And a lot of people don't do that A lot of people may not even know that that's available but being able to make sure that you don't have the same password across 15 different applications is one of the best ways that you can protect yourself your finances and those types of things All right thanks a lot Meredith that is Meredith Wilson the founder and chief executive officer of emergent risk international Sports is next It's 9 44 Hi I'm Patrick finger's owner a new look home design Sometimes it's nice to do half of something now on the other half later Like Queen and half the house now and then doing the other half later or shoveling half the walk now and then the other half later While half now half later is cool You know what's really awesome At new look through March 31st when you buy a new roof you can pay for half the roof later and then the other half never What Pay for half the roof later and then the other hand you'll never pay With our half later half never sail you save 50% on all roofing materials and you pay the other half later with interest refinancing Plus we.

"The show we nine on. Msnbc there is a lot going on tonight. Particularly four friday. A lot of news that we are tracking james laporta. Jim laporta is a us marine. He was an infantryman who was a veteran of the war in afghanistan Mr laporta is also now an excellent journalist. We've had him here on the show several times featuring his reporting For among other places the military times. Mr laporta now works as an investigative correspondent for the associated. Press and tonight. He was first to break the news. That a new phase is underway or at least a new resources being brought to bear on the evacuation effort in afghanistan. This is very interesting and potentially important mr porter first to report at the today that forces neff ghanistan including intelligence agencies have started using helicopters to pick people up to safely bring them to the kabul airport so they can be airlifted out. He said today quote. I've been sitting on this but can now report. Us helicopters ferried ninety six afghans for evacuation signaling military flights occurring outside kabul airport. Cia dia which means defense intelligence agency and sos special. Operations forces are collecting up us and afghans from outside kabul airport for not rescue. Now soon after james laporta posted that late. This afternoon zeke miller and three other reporters at a p had this full story quote. Us military helicopters flew into taliban held kabul on friday. To scoop up would be evacuees. American officials confirmed the today senior. American military officials told the that an american c. h. forty seven chinook helicopter picked up afghans mostly women and children and ferried them to hamid karzai international airport on friday the third brigade combat team. The army's eighty second airborne. Division airlifted the afghans from camp sullivan. Which is quite near the kabul airport. The officials said such sorties have been underway for several days from various points in kabul as afghan seek to flee the country taken over by the taliban intelligence teams inside kabul or helping guide both americans and afghans and their families to the airport or arranging for them to be rescued by other means. Now this is interesting for those living. In cities and provinces outside of kabul cia case officers special operation forces and agents from the defense intelligence agency on the ground are gathering some us citizens and some afghans who worked for the us at predetermined pickup sites. Again that's outside of kabul quote. The officials would not detail where these airlift sites. Were for security reasons. They spoke on condition of anonymity. Because they were not authorized to discuss ongoing. Let it be so that these are ongoing operations and that this reflects not just new ambition but new capability. Let's hope this can work to get more people safely out as the situation. Outside the airport in kabul stays bad as it seems to be getting if anything even more dangerous with each passing day as of this evening the pentagon is only confirming some of the ap's reporting on the record about helicopters being used to fill airlift people to safety Pentagon's only only confirming some of that. But but since some of this reporting is about not just military operations but also what's being described as intelligence agency operations. It's perhaps not surprising that the pentagon might be confirming it. Not saying that. Because i know anything that's not been printed or reported. I'm just saying that based on what i know about the pentagon not confirming anything about what intelligence agencies do as a general course we shall see we shall see on the record and out loud. The pentagon did say today that they greatly increase the number of people. They were able to get out from the airport today. They announced at the beginning of this week. You might remember that. They thought the upper limit of how many people the us could logistically get out literally the number of seats. They'd have an airplane. Each day would be between five thousand and nine thousand seats per day which meant five thousand. Nine thousand people per day could be evacuated and we heard that number at the beginning of that week. And since then it's been t disheartening each day to hear the hear them report to us that actually the total number of people who were able to be put on planes and were able to be taken out each day. He's been way lower than that. At the beginning of the week it was less than a thousand people by yesterday they'd gotten up to about two thousand people flown out in one day still way short of the physical capacity for what they can do but then today it seems like something started happening today. They said they flew out. Five thousand seven hundred people which means they are starting to fill the seats if the maximum capacity per day is five thousand two nine thousand seats and today they got over five thousand people out. Well that is. That is what we have been hoping for that. Every available seat will be filled. That's also reportedly what president biden ordered military commanders to get done to get the seats filled on all these flights to have no empty seats on any plane leaving kabul so a lot of interesting news a lot potentially inter not just interesting but potentially important news. They're coming out today including into this evening. We're going to have more coming up. Live with nbc's pentagon correspondent courtney kuby. You've actually multiple updates on that situation coming up. Tonight's stick with us for that this hour. We're also tonight. Going to be checking in with a doctor a pulmonologist which means he's a specialist in the respiratory system Who is not only working in. Just the right field. He's also working right in the bullseye of one of the most overwhelmed communities in the country right now in terms of hospital capacity having run out statewide days ago while the patient numbers in that state have still been rising precipitously every day since then couldn't be speaking with that doctor live coming up in just a few minutes as well. I have to tell you amazingly today. The state health officer for the great of mississippi was asked to comment on weird disturbing new reports in in that very hard hit state right mississippi the hospitals are full federal government and charitable groups are now coming in setting up field hospitals. Like in the parking garages of the state's flagship medical center. Mississippi low vaccine uptake seems to have just doomed to the states hospitals. That's the huge number of new infections and newly very sick people are just swamping the system in that state that frankly has enough to deal with. They are now facing a new challenge. Related to cove it. The mississippi state department of health confirming that quote at least seventy percent of the recent calls to poison control and mississippi have been related to ingestion of livestock or animal formulations of ivermectin purchased at livestock supply centers..

He was the special envoy to afghanistan into pakistan and the obama administration. The atlantic reported a revelation from his diary about joe biden. This was back in two thousand ten.

Saying this f. that we don't have to worry about that. We did in vietnam nixon and kissinger got away with it. This is from a credible person. In the obama administration that was two thousand ten and now these remarks we hear until twenty twenty unacceptable.

We're hearing that the british with a much smaller armed force a much smaller army is actually rescuing not only their own citizens rudy there. Rescuing the irish citizen to stop there. So can you give us. I'm not talking about politics. Can you give us some factual basis for one. America can cannot do. I mean we. We can definitely evacuate all these people. It's it's the. The problem is as a priority normally. When you do noncombatant evacuations or nieto's. I've done several of them You you delegate. Dod and you give them the free license to to set up and stage for for the box And we've got enough knowledge of afghanistan of dirt fields. runways locations threats. All that stuff is out there for us and we can. We can definitely leverage our capabilities And do it.

"defense intelligence agency" Discussed on America First with Sebastian Gorka Podcast

"Big spies the biggest agency in the world. Nothing haikus compared to the defense intelligence agency. Just look at the comparative budgets. And then you will understand. We're going to pay behind the cut. And now we're going to step. Into what james jesus angleton called the wilderness of mirrors with somebody who knows it intimately. She's the author of a brand new book putin's playbook and she was one of the most senior individuals inside intelligence community at the defense intelligence agency working on russian doctrine and strategy rebecca. Let welcome to america. I thank you very much. So i met you at a at a birthday party or a cocktail patio. Priok ovid and your excellent spy. Because you didn't let on at all what you do for a living. And then i see this book i met. I met that lady. She was at my friend's house. And now i know everything. I know a little bit about who you are. And what you've done is fabulous book just out you've got to check it out. It's from my publishes the best on the planet rebecca first. Let's talk about you your background and then let's talk about certain former. Kgb connell called vlad so who is rebecca koffler so. I was born and raised behind the iron curtain. Just like your parents. And in the former soviet union and i- immigrated to america because my parents raised me With the idea that one day i would go to the land of freedom and justice. They were anti-communist. They hated the totalitarian socialist system. So in america. After the september eleventh. I decided to serve the country and help protected from foreign threats so i join the defense intelligence agency and worked as an analyst for russian doctrine and strategy. Explain how hard it was to somebody born on the wrong side of the eye and to gain entry into the inner sanctum of the american intelligence community. What is it the enemy number. One for the kgb. I'll tell you that it's nearly impossible sebastian. You know my husband has while keith. Koffler and keys told me when i was trying to get into the intelligence community. He said don't even try. And it took me years and years in total. It was almost seven years. I got about five different job offers from all kinds of three letter agencies and then they would start the security clearance process and it will drag on and on and on and out so finally. After about seven years. I walked through the door. And keith said no normal person would ever have the patience and the fortitude to do this and but i was i was just on cloud nine. I loved my work at the dia. I just everything about it. It's the greatest career that one can have and it was very rewarding to protecting american super impressive. I wasn't born behind the curtain. I was born in england. When i got my clearance in the trump administration my sf eighty-six my clearance form. Even as a guy who wasn't born behind couldn't seventy six pages long so that's how complicated it can show yours was a little longer. Let's talk about your book momentarily. Putin's playbook but first let's set the ground rules. What is russia like in terms of its strategic culture. One of the greatest thing. 'cause out they calling gray. We lost him at a couple of years ago. Said every nation has a strategic culture lanes through which it looks at world. What is the easiest way to understand. How different russia is whether it's size soviet union all today. That's an excellent question. Actually and this is something that not many experts. Even the intelligence community understand that various countries are driven by the strategic culture. Some western experts. Believe that everybody is the same. And that is just simply not true as you know leads to bad intelligence exactly. And that's why. We are in the situation. Not only with regard to russia but with regard to garner stan iraq and places like that all over the world because the so-called experts did not factor in the mindset and the strategic culture of the adversaries and opponents. That they deal with this i. I've seen it myself. When i was a defense department civilian the fact that even seasoned veterans of the intelligence community sometimes the looked at other nations as if they were looking into a mirror and they thought well. This is how it works in america so clearly. That's how it's going to work in macedonia roar in two and it's one of the biggest mistakes you can make. We're gonna talk about the big mistakes in america's understanding of the russian federation with the author of rebecca kofler pro previously of the defense intelligence agency. I'm sebastian gorka.

"Us all up when it comes to research but t tell me about yours. I'll i'll start by saying that. I have for the last So after i got out of the army. I worked As an fbi special agent swat guy for a while. And then when i got out of the fbi for about the last nine years. I've worked with companies who were marketing and selling technology to primarily special operations command in in the us army. And so in the course of doing that. I was fortunate enough to work with a number of israeli companies in loved working with israeli companies. Love israeli's in tel aviv. Were the book starts one of my favorite cities in the world. If you've never been there you have to go. Israelis are incredibly kind and friendly. People speak grade english the food. They're fantastic grade everything. Today's about it. But one of the one of the crazy parts. I win Hamas kicked off the latest Conflict that you were alluding to. I had to really workers were visiting that week. And they're literally from their phones showing the videos that their children are taking of rockets arguing over their house and being intercepted by the iron dome. And so as you as you mentioned that that plays very heavily in my book in there some things you you getting right as a thriller writer you like saying i. I kinda figured out where this was going but certainly never in my wildest dreams did. I think you know something that i put. My book would happen in in real time and my friends are forced to watch out there trying to deal with that from a reach research perspective. A lot of what My matt drake protagonists does and what In which jack ryan. Junior does is john from my time in the military or in the fbi. My job was to run and recruit what we call sources or what folks in the intelligence community call assets and so ryan certainly does some of that as well and then from an overall research from a global perspective you have to you have to be a voracious reader of both current events and what's happening in staying abreast of what's going on in the world and then because of its. Tom clancy book. your readers. Also want you to get the technical details right and so there are a number of Scenes in my book. There's one where there's an thirty five seen when that. I'm really proud of. And i had a friend of mine. Who was a retired lieutenant. Colonel in the air force f sixteen pilots. That hoping with that. You know there's a mortar system in there that plays pretty prominently. And i had several folks who were veterans of the ranger regiment and helped Feel that motor system. That gave me information about exactly how that would go. And so that's kind of the key of it as you mentioned. There's a ternary search but at the end of the day you're writing a book of fiction but not a non fiction book and so the story has to drive that and you can't be. This was something. Tom clancy was. So good at is to know how much detail the put into really again going back to my last illustration make you think you're sitting in the cockpit of that fourteen or in my case the f thirty five but not so much that it weighs down the narrative and folks. Forget what you're actually writing. So hopefully i was able to walk that line. Oh you did What's so cool. Of course is is knowing that these systems are in place but more importantly that the people who operate them the true patriots the american heroes and the israeli heroes in this case are doing the work that we don't even know about and i. I realized that a technical question about the information. Do you have to get any of this. Cleared through the pentagon the pentagon but because i was an fbi special agent. What i have to do is send every book to them to get cleared beforehand. First with my matt drake series. Like i said. I don't i don't write an fbi agent. I write a case officer for the defense intelligence agency which is which is different somebody from the intelligence community so i thought well this review will be really really quick and it was terrible because the is of the book they reviewed it and then they send it out to every other three letter agency that they thought i might have ever rubbed shoulders with and gave them a chance to review it as well and so the first book was brutal and then i think we both got a little better at at my second book. The outside man came pretty quick. And then the tom price people target acquired they were able to the fbi was able to turn around and just a little under which was which was fantastic and so they did a really great job at it but man. It is now two books a year which means every six months. I'm turning in a book. We have to go through this review process and it always makes the publisher incredibly nervous because you know the publication date is gonna get done in time or not so it's it's always some high adventure for share a could spend all day talking tech talk but i just wanna have you talk a little bit more about the plane. The f thirty five. What an incredible machine share with us just a little bit about what makes it special the stealth technology but also the the sensors on that. It's like the uss enterprise. Tell us about it. Yeah so it's really really fascinating in that. They're there to fifth generation fighters that the us fields and by an in the delineation for fifth generation. Fighter applies to a couple of things one of them being the self-capability the platform like you said and then also the The sensors and armament that that platform is is able to use them for the first one in those is a little bit older. The f twenty two raptor which is still the world's premier aired fighter. It's it's unmatched in its capabilities. And the second one is the f thirty five and so the twenty two was designed for a very specific role in air. Air air interdiction rule. The f thirty five was built to be an all around platform that replaced the number of different airplanes for for the Marine corps replaced the harrier at one time in the navy. They thought it was going to replace the eighteen In the air force it was potentially going to replace the a ten but also Replacing the sixteen and so what makes it such a compelling platform is it's not it doesn't have the same flight characteristics as an f. twenty two but it has the fifth generation stealth capability as you lied to but what really is compelling about. It is its ability to do the sensor fusion. And so that. I get into that a little bit in the sequence. You're talking about in that. Each f thirty five if you can imagine them as being their own Having their own ip address if you will in which it can reach out and grab sensor data from both its onboard set of sensors other aircraft and then other things that are out there in and that's been There have been things like that that was available before and what people have found that it overloads the pilot and so as a former pilot of flying apaches. You have what's called an hugh helmet display unit that slides every your. I am as you turn your eye. The center moves and you actually fly By that census through that one. I and what people find with that is. That pilots are often uber. Well by the amount of information that's available to them so another amazing port of the f. Thirty five is there's actually artificial intelligence algorithms that work it take this tremendous feed of of raw sensor data kinda prioritize and then displays it for the pilot in in the manner in which he or she needs. And so you're not fighting through. Do i select this. Do i select this. How do i tag this target. What they're trying to do is is offload that work from the pilot to give them what they need to make decisions in that particular moment and fascinating truly. A smart plane piloted in this case in the book by very smart lady pilot. I thought that was a great great tug. I happen to know somebody whose daughter is indeed a fighter pilot. and it's a it's a really impressive part of the book which i can with don bentley target acquired. Tom clancy jack ryan junior novel. One of the things that strikes you of course you have to have a good set of villains and do you have the village but one of them in particular and this is what. I wanna give anything away so i'll ask you. In general one of them in particular is somebody who could pose as a west are quite easily and. I'm just speculating. That great idea for the novel. But i'm just guessing that the other side is.

"You're just joining us a quick summary of what? What? I've been talking about this wild story developing in the Daily Beast. Red State journalist Adam Housley, uh, and a couple of other places that spy talk also a website that has journalistic pursuits of this of this nature, And what they're saying is that a high level Chinese defector is working with the United States government specifically with the Defense Intelligence Agency and has been since February when He fled China with his daughter. His name is Don Jingwei, and he has been a long time official in China's Ministry of State Security. What we know now, In addition to this red state, put out a new report overnight, indicating that they have confirmed the daily Beast's reporting showing that this is Um, the guy who who we just named Don Jingwei. And they say that up until about four weeks ago. Nobody outside of the Defense Intelligence Agency even knew about the defector. So other parts of the government are now becoming aware that this guy has been working with the DEA here in the United States and the prior to that time, the D I A the Red state reports. Was vetting the information provided to it and confronting Langley officials. The CIA with what they've learned without divulging the source. They were keeping the source to themselves. Um Now, here's what Red State claims he has. He has detailed information about China's special weapons systems. The Chinese military's operation of the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the Origins of the coronavirus. And the Chinese government assets and sources within the United States. You have to wonder. Is there a reason D I a kind of alluding to what we mentioned before. Is there reason DEA was not being so forthcoming with other federal government agencies and does that have anything to do with the information that don has given them? He supposedly has provided, Red State says, quote terabytes of data. A lot of data to the D I A And This is what else So we've got a lot of information, potentially about the Wuhan instead of virology and the Chinese military. Here's what else they claim he's got again. This is from Red States. Report. Early early pathogenic studies of the virus we now know as Covid models have predicted Covid 19 spread and damage to the U. S. And the world financial records detailing which exact organizations and governments Funded the research of the coronavirus and other biological warfare research names of U. S citizens who provide intelligence.

"This guy supposedly has a bunch of information about how U. S. Government officials may have been involved in this cover up. Sounds Moya interesante to me. I know my Spanish is terrible. I'm sorry. My wife is a native speaker of Spanish. I've learned from her, but my Spanish is awful. I'm still translating in my head, but I'm working through it. Let's get the chunk here. Number one. Who is this guy? Why is China so mad that we have done Beijing way? That's the name of the spy. Yeah, This is from Red State. Red State sources confirmed that the defector is in fact, Don Jingwei. That he was in charge of counterintelligence efforts in China. He flew to the United States in mid February, allegedly to visit his daughter at a university in California. When Don Jingwei landed in California, he contacted DEA officials, Our D ir Defense Intelligence agency. And told them about his plans to defect and the information he brought with him. Young men hidden in plain sight for about two weeks before disappearing into d ia custody. My guess you won't see Don Jingwei again. This is in fact, correct than a high level counterintelligence operative from China. The highest level or one of the highest levels of that infrastructure. There has in fact affected to the United States. My guess is he is in grave danger. The Chinese Communist Party plays for keeps. We don't like them. I'll never like them, but you better respect their abilities. Because they are

Schiff it is addressed to this guy now here I am sitting before you as the acting director of national intelligence Joseph Maguire that's him testifying before Congress end of September he had received chefs letter which contained very few details but which marked the first public mention of the whistle blower complaint the letter accused McGuire of improperly withholding that complaint from Congress and subpoenaed him to testify now we heard McGuire say there he's the acting director of national intelligence and talk about timing threat to acquire what was your first day on the job my first day on the job was Friday the sixteenth of August and I think I set a new record in the administration for the anticipated before yeah yeah yeah that you had a heck of a first week didn't have much going for the Sir the questions there from New York Democrat Sean Patrick Maloney driving home the point that McGwire took over the job of running U. S. intelligence just four days after the whistle blower a US intelligence official filed the complaint McGuire suggested this was not the way he did version the job going either way Sir if I may my life would have been a heck of a lot simpler without becoming the most famous man in the United don't have settled debatable whether Joseph acquire was then or now the most famous man in the United States but if it felt that way it speaks to the extraordinarily awkward position the acting di and I found himself in caught between a White House looking for loyalty and lawmakers looking for answers since his appearance before the house intelligence committee McGuire has kept an exceedingly low profile no interviews we asked for one we're gonna spend these next minutes looking closely at the DNR job whether it matters that we are now past four months and counting with an acting director at the home the longest period without a Senate confirmed permanent leader of US intelligence since the job was created fifteen years ago today I'm asking Congress to create the position of the national intelligence director George W. bush in the White House rose garden two thousand four over in Congress they were listening we were breaking for the August recess and not I decided to call our committee back into session and we began the hearings Republicans Susan Collins of Maine she chaired the Senate governmental affairs committee I felt a sense of urgency because this was already two thousand for the terrorists attacks had happened on nine eleven two thousand one and the nine eleven commission had just released its final report it zoomed in on a failure to connect the dots that the CIA the FBI and others weren't sharing what they knew the report had ideas for how to prevent anything like nine eleven from ever happening again the central crowning recommendation a new position someone who could force intelligence agencies to talk to each other so Collins and Joe Lieberman then the committee's top Democrat got to work I remember you couldn't figure out what you were going to call this position to start with it was the need for a little while I was going to say and for awhile it was the Ned and I remember Joe Lieberman saying we can't call it the no that sounds too much like the net yeah it has to be the D. N. I. doesn't sound in power exactly what to call it was the least of their problems senator Collins told me the turf battles were in once it was vehemently opposed by not only the CIA but particularly the secretary of defense Donald Rumsfeld because his department was going to lose considerable power over the intelligence community's budget which was funneled through the department of defense but as you heard his boss President Bush was on board and in December two thousand four Congress passed the most sweeping intelligence overhaul in nearly sixty years by the following February bush was announcing his pick for the nation's first director of national intelligence vesting these are stories in a single official who reports directly to me will make our intelligence efforts better coordinated more efficient and more effective the director of the CIA will report to John John was John Negroponte at the time he was US ambassador to Iraq I tracked him down here in Washington this week and asked about that last bit of the president's remarks that the head of the CIA would report to him that's correct there were gathering no it did but you know it it it took some socializing and some explain simply socialite water like a devoted some water had to go under the bridge in the fifteen years that that water's been flowing under the bridge the office of the D. N. I. has expanded to a staff of thousands the exact numbers classified as we can quarters building is gone up in northern Virginia so has all this worked has having India nine made us safer again the sponsor of the original legislation senator Collins I do believe that it has been successful but it's not perfect I I do hear a criticism bet they demand nice office has grown too big too bureaucratic so I'm not saying that we got it perfect leave right but compared to where we were we have come and the norm this way I heard a similar view from Mike moral who was among those who required some socializing two years Negroponte's word moral serve more than thirty years at the CIA he was president bush's briefer on nine eleven and ended up the agency's deputy director moral opposed creating video and I thought the more obvious solution was to bulk up the authorities of the head of the CIA botch I evolved over time significantly so by the time I left government in two thousand thirteen the last week that I was deputy director I actually got in my car and drove to Capitol Hill and met with senator Collins and senator Lieberman it actually thank them so I was I started out in one place and I ended up in a completely different place pressed as to why morale who now hosts the intelligence matters podcast pointed to his former gang delivering the president's daily brief in the old days he says it was pretty much only CIA material that made the cut whereas now with a D. and I overseeing everything the president's likely to hear from shore the CIA but also the state department's intelligence branch or the Pentagon's defense intelligence agency the deer so when CIA wrote a piece say on a China issue and de I a had a different view it would actually say at the bottom of the page de I a has a different view here it is here's why they have a different view and here Mister president is why this matters to you this difference matters to you so and and I think that makes for better intelligence support for the president John Negroponte the original GNI has mixed feelings about the job he once held here we are fifteen years later mmhm as an experiment has it worked I would say it hasn't failed I'm not sure it's worked fully I think it's still a work in progress on the positive side ambassador Negroponte points to changes he helped put in motion such as integrating the F. B. I. more closely into the broader intelligence community then he pauses and adds mistakes still get made obviously we see that from the inspector general's report just now with respect Carter page and all that I was an egregious seems to have been an egregious mistake of some kind which shows that those problems of coordination don't just go away because you say they should the reference there to the DOJ inspector general who just last week delivered a report documenting all kinds of errors in the F. B. I.'s application to surveil one time trump campaign aide Carter page now can we draw a direct line between the D. and I roll and the F. B. I. **** ups know what is fact is last week so president trump tweeting the FBI is quote badly broken which brings us back up to this moment the president attacking what he has come to call the deep state the house voting to impeach the president following an inquiry originally put in motion by a US intelligence community whistle blower the usual array of national security threats on the radar from Iran to China to North Korea and no sign of a nomination for the top job in US intelligence it is definitely a problem that I had the president has not nominated a permanent Senate confirmed Deanna Republican senator Susan Collins if the people in the intelligence community do not know whether the acting D. N. night is going to be there next week they are going to be less responsive to his concerns to his directives and bad is a problem so I would urge the president to make a choice my put her argument to someone with firsthand experience Michael moral can I was acting director of CIA twice so I know what I'm talking about here you don't feel as empowered as you would if you are Senate confirmed because you know you're not gonna be there that long just how awkward position then does Joseph McGuire find himself in four months and four days after being named acting director of national intelligence world points out that requires a navy Vice Admiral thirty six years in uniform this is a guy has actually been shot at right in combat this is a guy who's who's injured a lot but I think what he's learning is that the political fire is often more challenging than actual weapons fire navigating impeachment era Donald Trump dominated Washington in other words it's a different game morale as I hope he's learning

Visit WWW dot Lenovo dot com slash S M B powered by Intel. Hey, you know, what might help apple sell more phones cheaper iphones from American public media? This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. Apple released its earnings yesterday afternoon. And although it met its lowered expectations revenue from phones was down. Fifteen percent over the same quarter last year and the future trend is also down for years. Apple smartphone strategy has been to make premium devices with a premium price tag, a thousand bucks is basically the starting price for a new flagship iphone, but those prices are hard to swallow in China and India markets apple is depending on to grow. It's global market share. And even here in the US consumers just aren't upgrading their phones as much as they used to duly. Ask is principal analyst at Forrester research. I asked her if apple can keep commanding such high prices, they've relied on a very fluid base of consumers in the past that could afford to buy not only devices, but services and subscriptions within the ecosystem. And I think one of the things it's hard to tell. I think one of the things they're not gonna tell us is it inhibiting their ability to attract new consumers into the ecosystem. Yeah. It's interesting because it feels like. It was a strategy based on sort of an old economic model of ongoing recovery where you know, if you tie it to the broader economy, it was based on the idea that there'd be an economic recovery in wages would continue to go up and there'd be lots of consumer spending. And we're kind of not seeing that. Yeah. So we're not seeing that. And I think if you look at the opportunities for growth, it's either get the same people to upgrade faster or it's attract new consumers into your market. And you look at who those new consumers are and they're simply not as a flu inter as wealthy as the existing base there. Either young or they're living in markets where there's lower wages overall. I think the trouble with these large. Consumer electronics companies is is the smartphone came along at this time. And it's been like an amazing amazing ten to fifteen year right at this point. But there isn't like another it devices that's coming after it. That's going to make up for the revenue with the slower replacement cycles and the slower uptake from consumers in the market today. So what do you think comes next? I mean, some manufacturers are sort of bucking this trend. Oneplus is going with a cheaper phone is that overly simplistic as an answer or would cheaper phones. Help sell more phones if I were smartphone manufacturer, I would test the market with less expensive devices. And Molly I say that based on someone who studies consumer behavior the devices that are selling now in the market for a thousand dollars eleven hundred twelve hundred dollars are amazing for photography and playing video games and watching TV and when we see five G come out. It's going to be awesome. That said the vast majority of the activity that consumers are doing on these phones, it's still around communication instant messaging, texting my friends triaging, Email for work. And I don't need the latest greatest device to do that. And so I think it is reasonable to expect the consumers will say, hey, how do I really use this device, and do I really need something that caused the thousand twelve hundred dollars to triage, my Email, duly ask is principal analyst at poster research. Ch- according to the motley fool apple shipments were down ten percent in China in the third quarter of last year and down fifty percent in India over twenty eighteen. And now for some related links. We talk a lot about the Chinese market. But India is huge for smartphone makers shipments almost doubled between two thousand fourteen and twenty eighteen to one hundred and fifty million phones according to analysts and ZD net report out of New Delhi says that for a few years apple was selling its older models in India for low prices, which wasn't that thrilling because we're talking about the iphone five c here people. But then apple started pushing more expensive bones sometimes even selling models for more than they were selling for in the US that didn't fly either. And it happened just as Chinese manufacturers like Xiaomi and one plus came into India with super cool tricked out smartphones that were half the price of the iphone. So you could have a heck of old iphone for the same price as brand new flagship smartphone from one plus easy choice. The one plastics was released in India in twenty. Eighteen ziti net. Says its old a million units in twenty two days for comparison apple sold one point seven million units in India in all of twenty eighteen combined and on a completely different note. I totally missed that earlier this month the department of defense released a document about a twenty two million dollar program by the Defense Intelligence Agency. That was researching warp drives invisibility cloaks wormholes star gates an alien tracking. I mean say what you want about government spending. But this is how we got the internet. Also, apparently, according to an old blog post, I found about secret military projects the CIA once tried putting listening devices on house cats, not every idea is a hit you guys. But I'm holding out hope for the wormholes. I'm Molly would and that's marketplace tech.

"Today about him to the Senate Judiciary committee bar told senators yesterday that special counsel Robert Muller's investigation into Russian election interference is not a witch hunt. As President Trump has frequently claimed a terror attack on a luxury hotel in Nairobi. Kenya is over Kenya's President who can yada says fourteen people were killed including an American and several more were injured over the two day attack. He says that all the militants were killed, but Kenyan officials won't stop there. We will seek out every person that was involved in the funding planning and execution of this heinous act, the Somali militant group, Al Shabaab has claimed responsibility. This is the same group that attacked shopping mall in Nairobi. In two thousand thirteen leaving sixty seven people dead. A Pentagon report asserts that China is on the cusp of fielding some of the world's most advanced weapons systems. NPR's rob Schmitz has this report. An unclassified report by the defense intelligence agencies says Beijing has made enormous military strides in recent years. Thanks, partly to domestic laws, forcing foreign partners to divulge technical secrets in exchange for gaining access to China's market as a result. China's now at the leading edge of a range of technologies, including medium and intermediate range missiles and hypersonic weapons which can fly many times the speed of sound and dodge missile defense systems, speaking to Pentagon reporters, a senior defense intelligence officials said he was worried China's military is now advanced enough that it's general feel confident they could invade Taiwan. Bitching has said it would not hesitate to use force. If Taipei formally declares independence or in the case of external intervention, including by the US, the island's most powerful ally. Rob schmitz. NPR news. This is NPR. This is WNYC in New York. Good morning. I'm Richard Hake. Seven zero four thirty degrees. Fair skies right now in New York City, we do expect a high today near thirty nine degrees with partly sunny skies. A New York judge ordered the NYPD to turn over documents revealing whether it spied on the cell phones of people attending black lives matter protests, the New York Civil Liberties Union sued after the department climbed to confirm or deny whether it had records about surveillance of demonstrations. The police have made the claim in the past arguing that certain information could harm counterterrorism or criminal investigations, it's called the global response. But a New York Times reporter Ali Watson says it didn't pass muster this time. Because the judge says there's no criminal activity. Three demonstrators had no nexus counterterrorism had no next to crime. It actually these are three people exercising. Their constitutional rights. The NYPD has thirty days to appeal. The ruling governor Cuomo's proposal for education funding is raising some eyebrows. The governor's plan would increase school aid by a billion dollars. But education officials and advocates say that's only half of what school districts need democratic assembly speaker, Carl hasty says he wants to make sure students are adequately provided for we'll look at what he presented. But I would say knowing our conference we're gonna wanna see more spending. Governor's proposal set aside less than three hundred fifty million dollars for high needs districts, a fraction of what education officials asked for last year. Governor Phil Murphy in New Jersey gave his first state of the state address, and he's much of it to spur state lawmakers to act on legislation that would fulfill his signature campaign promises. Let's start two thousand nineteen by finishing. What we began in two thousand eighteen. Putting the minimum wage on a clear and responsible path to fifteen dollars an hour. And by legalizing adult use marijuana Murphy also used the speech to tout the new laws his administration assigned since taking over from Chris Christie, including restoring funding for Planned Parenthood paid sick leave and gun control. Measures Republican leaders, criticized the speech for failing to address the state's high taxes and high cost of living NYU medical schools received twice as many applications from perspective of black and Latino students as before since announcing that it would no longer charge tuition. That's according to the website inside higher Ed but slate correspondent, Jordan Weisman. Who's been critical of NYU's plan says that won't necessarily mean more black and Latino doctors NYU is getting more black and Hispanic applicants which is great for the future of NYU's diversity, assuming a they actually admit more. We don't know where they're coming from. It may be the case that they're just pulling applicants who would be otherwise going to Harvard Medical School.
