Culture Myths and a New Science of Culture Dr. David White - burst 04

"At the top. Okay david. Help me out here wool. You mean culture doesn't are you saying culture doesn't start at the top so the prevailing wisdom is that the leader says the culture right. This has been true. And it's the most complicated mantha one eyed about the most inc to Because it's the one that's most pervasive is most entrenched in our in our society and for good reason right. I go into a lot of his historical lot of it. Is this country. America founded on this sort of faith of the individual of pia rugged individualist myth right Quaker cavernous Protestant settlers from europe in england. Who came over in the seventeenth century. You know believed firmly in the in the power of the individual leader to make change happen. All that carried forward into our society today The problem is that there is almost zero evidence in anthropology and other related social sciences. That supports the idea. The leaders somehow set culture create culture cultures. Form perfectly well without leaders. Any group tasked with any any task though cultural form generally speaking of the former around the task. The the the thing that you're doing now i as i get into in the book. The this myth about leadership came became super prominent in the late seventies early eighties. Because corollary to that. I mean along What was going on that time. Is that Folks in the business schools were discovering researching that this idea that basically humans in organizations are unmotivated people. Basically don't need you know need to be directed and manipulated in cajole to work to get work. Done that idea which had been around. Since you started the twentieth century was debunked in the late late sixties early seventies mid seventy s by researchers at mit and other universities in the idea the new idea of management. Was that essentially. If you could unlock the human potential of the individual you know and let them flourish in organization. Great things will come. You don't need to sort of manipulating coercing control and direct people to do work because people actually need their creativity unleashed so that was the famous so-called theory of motivation of organizations talk. The douglas mcgregor stuff like three x three x theory. Why right was the was the whole idea. So theory why. When theory y became the de facto new way of thinking about management in organizations culture became the convenient vehicle to enable theory y so in other words if you just let if you just create the right culture in the organization good things will happen and that's the simplest way of saying the most most predominant Myth that has lived with us to this day. That if you just make make the right. Climate make the right environment. Good things will happen in the organization. A very compelling myth. It's very well intended and got a lot of. There's a lot of good to there's no question there is. it doesn't support it right so huge you list five problems with why this myth that culture starts at the top is an issue problem. You leaders of overestimate thrown influence problem. Too complex change is not happy through individual influence problem. Three for leaders beliefs take hold in the organization. They have to be there to begin with and four cultures not the summer personalities and problem five language alone does not change culture and your research the research that well not just your research with research. That's been done here in cognitive anthropology has kind of blown open this idea that you know as leaders. We probably don't have nearly as much influence as we think we do. When it comes to culture because culture is going to exist with the leader. That i am i in that well said Because i think i think i consult businesses to and every because we need to change your culture. You change you your culture your culture you. You didn't create it. It happened right. It's kind of an organic thing. Isn't it in reality. Well as i as. I write about the book. It culture is as we'd like to say culture follows task right. The common way of thinking about it is that castles culture might just set. The culture in the task will actually goes the other way around what you do. This is the cognitive science of culture in on the brain. What you do shape how you think and to some extent you know. We talked about this cognitive science and culture being kind of academic kind of newfangled but in some ways. It's incredibly intuitive. You know this is culture shapes how you think so.

"Disconnect. Is that we we? You know we make a par on a golf hole and we think we're a greg offer. You know there's the old saying in Silicon Valley where I grew up. There's a lot of people that were born on third base and thought they hit a triple. He if you're comparing yourself to everybody else if you have so many bad leaders which there are many bad leaders, we don't want to talk about. and. Then you compare yourself you know you're no worse. You're no better I. Think we live in a society that accepts that only thirty percent of the people who are highly engaged in their work. Jeff Effort Stanford wrote a book. In which he basically says the most cultures. Are Not led by humble people or and that we use fear and that's the way it is I I, think most of what we've inherited from a society before us is about the manipulation of rewards and punishments come up I mean. I as the head of public comp committee or to by day I had a line of consultants outside the kept telling me all the time if I would only bride my CEO differently, company would be better. You know is if is if in this case, it was a guy at gymboree. They met Macaulay who was brilliant. He grew e-group prophets five hundred percent organically of four years and I got a comp consultant saying but Gareth just bribe him a little differently. I Call Matt in one day and he's Like I'm not working hard already and it's When you ask people, how do you motivate people They don't give you the Douglas McGregor answer. If you don't motivate people, you just create a great environment because we're more in the I would say we're more in the opportunity business than the manipulation business if we're good leaders. But. So much of what we think is quote unquote how we get people to act using fear in terms of manipulation to try to get a result and it's You know it's it just doesn't work and but if so much a part of the ethos that it's hard to convince people that at times you use, you must see that your work too I do i. Do because I I often see. That, we're still trying to use rewards as a way to try to get a specific behavior but the problem is is that you may get that specific behavior for a moment. But. Then what happens is that behavior over the course of time starts to decrease again. In does I mean you know when we wrote this book, you're going to get a kick out of it. So we were talking off live before we got on that. Michael out there this. Ryan he and I had an argument the only argument writing the book was in the Chapter Today, he wanted to start it off. With the silliest example I've ever heard of, he wanted to talk about the age old problem of parents trying to get kids to eat Broccoli. Everybody was like that's the dumbest thing ever and turns out as usual. He's smarter than I. Am he was right and I was wrong. It is the simplest of dumb examples that we've all done with our kids you your Broccoli. Does get an ice cream sundae or whatever we promised kids. You can go play or whatever would be, but it manipulating people expecting them to be more engaged in their work is like expecting a threat or a promise of reward for kid eating Broccoli to get into like Broccoli he may shovel dentists throat, but he's not going to like it. In fact, the research over eight years is pretty clear. The more I manipulate you do something the less interested you become in the underlying activity, but it is those wives tales that I think perpetuate some of the problems we have. A. By the way we're talking with Gary he'll. He's the CO author of this Book Choose Love. Not Fear Outstanding Book. Able. Amazon bookstores near you it's absolutely it's by the way. I know that people are GonNa go how that looks like. It's a thick book man it reads so fast. I'm just telling you I read this thing. So quickly it's it's a great read. It really does read quickly and you're gonNA love every piece of information it's going to challenge you. I'm just going to tell you right now that this book is going to challenge you is going to challenge your thinking. Right you've got to be open to that Gary, Gary and Ryan talk about that as well as that, you've got to be open. You know if you want to be great leader, you gotta be open to having your you know your thought processes, your sometimes Archaic Thought Process Challenged. And it's a great read you're going to really really enjoy it I. I'm I'm. By the way I wanted I wanted you did this I didn't want to go here but I thought well, if you're GONNA, if you're GONNA go there. Let's go there because you know what? Here's the question you started it Gary now now, we're going to go with it. So the question is we are in some sort of motivational insanity you about this in chapter seven, seek commitment knock noncompliance. And you we have this. It's the question I get as a coach and as a coach consultant saint question you get you know from every leader that I've ever worked with. And so I'm just gonNA play the role. Let me play the role. Gary I. GotTa. Tell You my big question is for you because you're you're a great consultant and. How do we motivate people? It's the it is the question isn't it? All the time and and we're not the first one. So. My answer is the answer that Warren Bennis of one of my mentors gave me. When he worked for Maslo McGregor A, maslow's hierarchy of needs and Doug McGregor were all a little micro Oria that do this. And his answer at Mit in the late nineteen fifties is the same and I think it's brilliant. He says we don't motivate people. And thinking that leaders motivate people is the problem not the solution. Power motivate people. If you mean, get a movement of bribe them to go from A to B, you might be able to get their movement. But if you want my discretionary effort, you can't do that to me. He said the most you can.

"Creedence Clearwater revival. John fogerty. Suzie Q part one the mono single version in the month rotation. The network. One other thing that general keen said last night. In addition to the bite we just played where he said that Trump didn't get confirmation. The drone strike may have been a boo-boo General Khin last night suggested that. We might. Be very conservative on our hit on Iran here regarding drought. We might kinda hold our cards here because of the Tchaikovsky. This is a fascinating theory. Chai calms are one of the biggest importers of Iranian oil. And we are in the midst of some pretty serious trade negotiations with the checkups, do you wanna know how serious those trade negotiations are? As you well know, I as a hobby, read all kinds of different things besides political news, and regular news, one of the things I read his tech blogs because I'm fascinated with gadgetry gizmos. And. This has not yet made it to the so-called mainstream news, but it's going to pretty soon. The chairman of the gigantic company that assembles apple products name of that company is Foxconn. They just opened a factory in Wisconsin. They make over ninety percent of all I phone. They assemble them in China near schenn's Zan. They've got factories that employ one and a half million people because of these trade negotiations and the rising likelihood of more tariffs. The chairman of this Terry, go is his name O. You is suggesting that apple get serious about moving production out of China. At least thirty percent of this is not something can be done overnight. He wants to move some of the production of Taiwan. Terry goes going to run for president atop wanna just step down as the chairman of Foxconn. And they got the new guy coming up, July first, but this guy, Terry was an amazing amazing success story in and of itself to have risen to the point of there would not be iphones made as cheaply and abundantly in his affordably Aford not for this guy and his apple has a lot to say about how their products and to, but they actually make it happen. Now, there are other companies that assemble other apple products, but FOX cons, the big one when this guy starts suggesting to Tim cook, an apple you might want to seriously start thinking about relocating, some of your assembly process outside of mainland China strictly because of the tariff war of trade, negotiator. That is a short sign that everybody thinks this is going to go on for a while. And. Tell you how it's going to end it's going to end with Trump winning because the comms need our market, and they need iphones to be made in mainland China, not Taiwan or India, or Brazil, or Vietnam, which are all possible locations for new sites. But it would it would man it would take a long time. The supply saying the supply chain for iphones is all right there in mainland China within driving distance these factories. But the tricalm's need our market. They need everybody in the world needs this market. They need you. They need the American consumer, they need your dollars. They need your commerce. There's no market in the world comparable to the United States market. Meeting Connie, and that's Ventura, why Trump will prevail here. So General Khin is suggesting that we may have held our cards on this strike because of the Goshi with the comms on trade. They get the vast amount of their oil from Iran. The biggest importers of Iranian oil. And with all of these negotiations going on with the child calms it may not be bad to have them. Oh, us one meeting tricalm's. So we pulled back. We announced that we're gonna hit then we don't. And we could say the check, I'm thinking of you JJ shaping we don't wanna do anything that might upset Arabian oil shipments to you. We're also building, according to General Khin. We are building a European coalition against Iran. Not just us to bring them back to the table. But. Like I said yesterday. Trump is surrounded by people who want to wipe Iran off the face of the earth, and they've wanted to do this for thirty or more years. I think Bolton may be one of them and I will guarantee you that when Trump decided to cancel the hit there were some pretty ticked off people there. But that they have to deal with Trump's the boss. But make no mistake. They are they are still. They're loved it illustrate this couple more soundbites. This is Douglas McGregor. He was on with Tucker Carlson last night. Former US army, Colonel and Tucker said, look, I don't wanna be paranoid. But I've watched all this before it does seem as if the president is strongly opposed to conflict with Iran. He knows it will define as administration knows that. Probably does not serve American interests. But people work for him are pushing the US in a position where war is very likely if not inevitable, am I imagining this? I don't think you are surrounded by people in the defense, department, in the chain of command in his own national Security Council staff, in the State Department who are absolutely committed to finding ways to attack Iran. I think the president understands that an attack on Iran would result in an all out war. The notion of limited strikes is absurd the Iranians would respond with everything they have because their economies. It ruins their backs are the wall. He knows that exactly what I told you yesterday that there are people in Trump's immediate orbit who want to wipe off the face of the earth. Now mcgregor's theory is that if we do this little proportionate response in the hit the, the area, the military base. Whatever in solution installation launched this drone we just hit that. That his theory is the Iranians would respond with everything they have because their economies in ruins their backs are against the wall and Trump knows this. If, if you're a commies in ruins in your back's against the wall, why do you let it all hang out after a proportionate response. Like that would be. You would think that if the Iranians would have to think that this is it, we got one chance to save ourselves. So we hit their drone me knocked thrown out Trump hits the installation that, that launched the drone, so we're going to respond with all out warfare which might effectively wipe us out. That's what McGregor said there. It's, it's he would know more than I he's the former military guy, sounds strange to me. One sound byte remaining Chris Wallace America's newsroom. Fox News channel today. Sandra smith. So what do you make of it? When we learn this morning via tweet from the president, that he did confirm he called off those strikes when he learned about potential casualties. I have to say, I think it raises as many questions as a dancer is the idea that ten minutes before the strike is the president, says you'd suddenly asked, what gee, how many people are going to be killed if we go ahead with strikes, that usually is discussed and in depth a great deal before that hours before that ever happens. So it does raise the question, does the president really have the stomach to launch this kind of attack and get more deeply involved, perhaps in a confrontation with Iran. So he didn't say enjoy analogies to bombers Redline. Other people have done that, but this is one of the reactions that Trump check it out. Trump pulled out. He was a big is a big bluff and Trump loss. That's, that's what the Democrats, the media are attempting to. Cell as they embark or continue on their course portraying Trump as an accidental incompetent very dangerous doesn't know what he's doing. Gotta get him out of there as soon as we can blah, blah, blah. All right. It's open line Friday when get got the phone calls, we'll do that start with that right after we get back. The center of the radio universe. Rush. Network. On the voice of New York seven ten w o r. In this steel investor insights, steeples, chief investment officer, Michael O'Keefe Michael, we hear from time to time comments about interest rates. Why is this so important to rates? People tend to track her the ten year treasury rate, and the fed funds rate. Well, why is the fed funds rate, so important, the Federal Open Market committee is the branch of the Federal Reserve Board that sets monetary policy meeting several times a year to among other things set. The fed funds rate, which is the rate at which banks lend reserve balances overnight to one another. The fed funds rate usually affects the rate banks charge. Customers for everything from auto loans to credit cards to home mortgages higher. Rates can slow down this type of borrowing and possibly the economy. And what about the ten year treasury rate? The ten year treasury is probably the most well known as it serves as an anchor or benchmark rate as interest rates rise, existing buzz held in a portfolio will most likely followed price and turn if an investor is.

Trump is surrounded by people who want to wipe Iran off the face of the earth, and they've wanted to do this for thirty or more years. I think Bolton may be one of them and I will guarantee you that when Trump decided to cancel the hit there were some pretty ticked off people there. But that they have to deal with Trump's the boss. But make no mistake. They are they are still. They're loved it illustrate this couple more soundbites. This is Douglas McGregor. He was on with Tucker Carlson last night. Former US army, Colonel and Tucker said, look, I don't want to be paranoid. But I've watched all this before it does seem as if the president is strongly opposed to conflict with Iran. He knows it will define as administration. He knows that. Probably does not serve American interests, but people who work for him are pushing the US in a position where war is very likely if not inevitable, am I imagining this? I don't think you are surrounded by people in the defense, department, in the chain of command in his own national Security Council staff, in the State Department who are absolutely committed to finding ways to attack Iran. I think the president understands that an attack on Iran would result in an all out war. The notion of limited strikes is absurd the Iranians would respond with everything they have because their economies at ruins their backs against the wall. He knows that exactly what I told you yesterday that there are people in Trump's immediate orbit who want to white moth, face the earth. Now, mcgregor's theory is that if we do this little proportionate response to the hit they the area, the military base. Whatever in solution. Insulation launched this drone if we just hit that. That his theory is the Iranians would respond with everything they have because their economies in ruins their backs are against the wall and Trump knows this. If, if you're a commies in ruins in your back's against the wall, why do you let it all hang out after a proportionate response. Like that would be. I mean, if you would think that if the Iranians would have to think that this is it, we got one Jansen to save ourselves. So we hit their drone me, Dr thrown out, Trump hits the installation that, that, that launched the drone, so we're going to respond with all out warfare which might effectively wipe us out. That's what McGregor said. There. It's, it's he would know more than I is the former military guy, sounds strange to me, one sound, byte remaining Chris Wallace America's newsroom. Fox News channel today. Sandra smith. So what do you make of it? When we learned this morning, via tweet from the president, that he did confirm he called off those strikes, when he learned about potential casualty I have to say, I think it raises as many questions as a dancers, the idea that ten minutes before the strike is the president says you've suddenly asked, what gee, how many people are going to be killed if we go ahead with strikes, that usually is discussed an in depth a great deal before that hours before that ever happens. So it does raise the question, does the president really have the stomach to launch this kind of attack and get more deeply involved, perhaps in a confrontation with Iran. So he didn't say enjoy the analogy so bama's red line other people have done that. But this is one of the reactions at Trump check it out from be pulled out a, a big is a big bluff and Trump loss. That's, that's what the Democrats and the media are attempting to sell as they embark or continue on their course portraying Trump as an accidental incompetent very dangerous. Doesn't know what he's doing. Gotta get him out of there as soon as we can blah, blah, blah. All right. It's open line Friday when I got the phone calls, we'll do that start with that right after we get back..

Text message here on the my pillow text number text line. Iran is not getting a free ride from Donald Trump. No matter what happened last night. I think you're on is on pins and needles. You know wasn't a head fake. Well, the president just moments ago, went directly to the American people to explain why this reverse decision. Breaking now on the Mike Gallagher show. Here's what the president said on Monday. They shot down and unmanned drone flying international waters. We were cocked and ready and loaded to retaliate last night on three different sites. When I asked, how many will die one hundred and fifty people was the answer ten minutes before the strike. I stopped it that is not proportionate to shooting down an unmanned drone. I am in no hurry. Our military is rebuilt new and ready to go by far the best in the world. Sanctions? Are biting and more added last night, Iran can never have nuclear weapons not against the USA and not against the world. Sorry, I think the president's tone is perfect. And I believe he's right. And I can't wait to hear how the Trump haters are going to condemn him for coming to a very humane decision. Maybe you don't agree with it. And that's okay. We can we can argue on the merits for and against, but the president felt that to have a piece of equipment knocked out of the sky wasn't proportionate to killing at least one hundred and fifty Iranians. Let's get your reaction. Eight hundred six five five Mike. Because again, the most important voice to me is yours. Your your your input. Your perspective here on the Mike Gallagher show right here in the relief factor dot com studios twenty two before the hour. Hey, tom. Thanks for hanging. I totally agree with the president. You know there was no loss of life. But I think the minimum he should demand publicly that they send a pallet of cash to replace the cost of the dome to replace the policing, the shipping lanes and. You know going forward. Yeah. Why don't we maybe we can use the blueprint that Obama put together about delivering, you know, money on a on pallets and you know, billions of dollars in cash, maybe they'll pay maybe they'll pay us back? Yeah. Great, great idea. I mean, that's the other thing, the, the, the Trump policy with regards to Iran is so wildly different from the appeasement of Barack Obama. So when I hear when I hear the naysayers and the little nets this is Obama. He's just like Obama. He's this is his red line. No, no red line. The president draw red line. The president was ready to respond according to his own message this morning to the American people. And when he realized at least one hundred and fifty Iranians, we're going to be killed. It wasn't proportionate. To the destruction of a one hundred and thirty million dollar unmanned drone seems reasonable to me. She she'll you're on the Mike Gallagher show. How you doing today? Seasonal. Good. Thanks. Better. I couldn't stand it love it love it. Good for you. this guy's got more smarts in moxie than than your times and all these politicians put together you want to turn the nation all those people that they're gonna kill tournament the martyr's i mean the iranians are desperate i mean these sanctions are debilitating their crushing them you know and he is absolutely right he knows what he's doing in these other he makes he makes the media he's pundits quite fools you're right i mean the mullah's do want to drag him into a decision that they hope will backfire they don't care they want to go meet the twenty virgins they got nothing to lose so they want to draw the united states into a into a bloodbath so that he gets defeated in two thousand twenty the american people turn on him that you know you're right he outsmarts these guys on his worst day and then to hear the so-called experts come along and decide that they're smarter than he is I also love the part I love I love how pundits who are making a lot of radio studio. I've got no access to our nation's intelligence. You think he does? But yet, they're smarter than he is. And they, they're going to figure out what's best for the American people in a way that he can't give me a break. John, you're next on the Mike Gallagher show. How you doing? John. I'm fine. Good. No, I have just one burning question how the initial order these, we're in the air. Healed back. I'm okay. Well, in trouble by that have to be troubled by putting planes in the air, and then saying, what are the repercussions of my actions, you've got to think about it before you say? John. A nuclear bomb. If you pressed the John, we're not talking about a nuclear bomb. This is you're you're you're you're you're playing processes faulty in your planes in the air. And then change your mind, right? You're playing into Trump. Can I make a point? You're playing into the he's damned if he does. And he's damned if he doesn't now you're gonna find fault with the fact that we had planes in the air. The president explained it in his tweets this morning. Very simply he said we were ready. We were cocked and loaded. And believe me, he's got it for all sides, telling him we should have. We should have a retaliatory strike against Iran got planes in the air. He finds out at least one hundred and fifty people are going to be killed. He believes that's not proportionate to the to the shooting down of a drone so he called off the mission. And why why are you finding? Go ahead. Remember his initial reaction was, I don't think the Iranian government did this. I think this just happened by accident. While you say the Iranian government didn't do it. He said there was a general or he suspected, somebody made a mistake a big mistake. Yeah. Correct. So, so that, that's probable that, that you could late the feel really by accident. So we don't want to do the same thing that we're thinking, probably they did that is. I don't think and I mean, I'm an expert on things. I don't feel anything about. Very strategies. And I'll tell you the Irish saying of the day, it's easy to be brave from the distance. You'd better believe an armchair general, but what I'm saying is personally, I don't think as you put planes in the air, intil, you vast, what are the repercussions of what we're doing here? Well, that's, that's literally what he did. And there's no again, I'm not sure why that you're finding fault with a reversal of the decision that didn't do then what it sounds like you didn't want him to do in the first place he did. What you you wanted. And again, I'm with you. We know what we don't know we ought to know what we don't know. Maybe we don't know what we don't know what I do know is that this is a president who has got this under control, and the idea that we're smarter than he is. And that we're going to throw him under the bus again. No going in that some of these voices nine mean you sir. I think you sound very reasonable, but some of these voices that are finding fault with him. What him to fail? Certainly Iran wants him to fail. The Democrats want him to fail. But now figure this out here's here's max rose. That's play this again. Popping up on morning Joe this morning on MSNBC Representative from New York, no Trump fan. Here's what he had to say about the president's decision to stand down. Look, I commend the president for taking a step back. What we need. Right now is clearly a policy of courageous restraint one that is layered with strategy and defined objectives. What we do not need right now. I cannot emphasize enough is yet. Another John Bolton war. I was in Afghanistan, just six years ago. I've got friends that deployed four five six times a never ending Moore's. We certainly do not need another one in the Middle East right now. Like I said, we need clear strategy. All right. Let's get your take on all of them. And I want you to hear a very fascinating segment. I listened to watch done on Tucker Carlson show and Fox News. Retired army Colonel Douglas McGregor making a powerful argument against a military response and war with Iraq. I mean with.

"Hour. Colonel Douglas mcgregor's going to talk about what's going on with Iran. Jeffrey Lyons coal Malley attacks. And former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton is going to be on the show live in the Clark, our Mike Gallagher, jump on and Dennis Miller. My buddy from SNL is evil be at the Saint George theater is that tonight Frankie five boroughs tomorrow night tomorrow night. Dennis Miller at the security center in Staten Island. Good morning, Franken more you Albert you boys door doing. Great doing great happy Friday. you don't want to guys i have to go here i'm i see from me so much news that i feel like it's my responsibility tell you about but what what is going on trend look for and the problem is we have the system that really isn't great that brings us the new so i'm trying to find out where where do you have that story about the colleges here it is the group that oversees the s._a._t. will begin using versity score which will reflect the social and economic background of each to dig why can't you just take fast and be and i don't even know if i believe in the s._a._t. i don't believe any standardized testing but the wall street journal reports versity scoble us fifteen factors including the crime rate and poverty level of the students neighborhood and school so what they're going to try they try to tailor the questions for this college hymning lives in the ghetto able to send to see the scores while reviewing applications frankie looks like the dumbing down Is trying to do. I think for lack of a better term for game. I think that what you're seeing here is a reaction to the rich kids getting into all the good schools. And so what, what happened for years, is that if you could afford SAT prep courses you have a much, much higher score on the SAT can't me, man. So. Terrible. I don't know. Adding fifteen factors that nut measure a student's adversity. So if you come from an area that's filled with crime, Baltimore or Saint Louis, something like that. Maybe certain parts of Chicago, you'll get a higher adversity level. If you come from a place, that's rife with poverty as opposed to a very wealthy area. You're going to get a higher adversity score. So the rating does not affect the students test scores, but they're going to include this adversity score along with your test score to college admission officials. So this is exactly what I said. It's a reaction to all the rich kids getting into all the, the guy that came up with this guy came up with core, which, which is an absolute failure. You know. And, and when I see my kids exhausted after taking, quote unquote standardized testing that they don't, don't even know what and I know the principals and the superintendents have to do it because the state mandates. They should throw them all out. And like you said, Franks discord district a school district that's as that should be. And to do standard. Is this looks to me like it's the Derg dumbing it down? Hey, Frankie five boroughs. You're albert. Oh, good. What's the matter? You not happy. It's Friday and, you know, we have made more on who now is saying, he won't be out of town for more than nine days. Because otherwise he's out more than nine days. That means your money Williams. The public advocate would take over. It's ridiculous. Yeah. So he's going to campaign in like a like a lightning fashion, like I'm only going to be away for five days, and I'll be back of seven people. I mean. Want to see the precedence? I events I wanna see if there are more than twelve people, they're going. Bill, the boys. Nobody cares. There's seventy two people that are running for president on the democratic side. It's ridiculous. I love what Steve's when he wants to do a New Jersey big fan of what he wants to do here. I think it's great. I think it will save the state money. And by the way, it will put money into the pensions see this is the thing. So also wants to do is proposal. He says, newer, state employees county municipal employees and educators would fewer than five years of service, which shift from a purely defined benefits plan in which they're guaranteed a certain level of, you know, monthly benefits during retirement to a plan that combines features of a pension 4._0._1._K. So listen to this Joe, I think this is pretty smart. These workers would receive a pension on their first forty thousand dollars of income, any income in excess of forty thousand would be enrolled into a 4._0._1._K style account managed by the state, but unlike a 4._0._1._K public workers would be guaranteed at least a four percent return on their retirement savings. If the pension system post higher returns employees in the cash. Ballots program would get seventy five percent of what the pension experiences and the state would use the other twenty five percent to boost the pension system. So that'd be putting money back into the pension system where it belongs. So the pres- Senate president's office estimates the reforms would reduce the state's pension contributions by seventeen point one billion over thirty years and local government contributions by seven point six billion over thirty years. So, in other words, the burden wouldn't be on the state and the municipalities to put money into the system, you'd be working together with it. Yeah. And it has no provision here, anybody who's been working to the state more than five years. You're not losing your pension. You you're going to get your pension. If you've been working more than five years, you know what you gotta give it to Steve Sweeney, head of the Senate in New Jersey. And this isn't just a local New Jersey issued this resonates. This is why cities going broken. It's really, really such a burden of cities all across the United States. But you can't just if. If you're in there and you already put three four years in, and you started taking this job because of the benefits, and now you're gonna pull them back and say, we're going to change that you can't you gotta start a new as at work. You gotta be whatever you wanna do. Steve Sweeney's probably right. You got to do something, but you can't you can't take back what you promise but he's not he's not doing. He's saying that he's saying on the first forty thousand dollars of your income, you're going to get a pension based on that forty grand if you make more than that the, the money that you make beyond forty thousand is going to go into this 4._0._1._K plan. So these people are still going to be guaranteed pension. It's just not going to be the pension that everybody else is getting you're going to have kind of an equal sign that 4._0._1._K could increase decrease based on the market, but you're guaranteed at least a four percent return. What 4._0._1._K tells you you're going to get four percent back on, on the money that you put having their handing it over to Steve onto the hands it over to the state to manage the flow. I think that's I think that's what he's proposing which, I don't, I don't agree with that. I think the state does a bad job of handling those things, I think it should be somebody independent. But who do you find that's going to be, you know, that that's the issue trust those making far too much sense? That is far too much Friday. Sweet Sweeney said he goes look a new pension plan is just common sense. He says, I don't know why there's such resistance in New Jersey. It makes you gotta start somewhere. I am. But not what you promise that happened with police officers, under the less administration just can't pull it back, you gotta work with but at least he's trying to do something, but you know what? The problem is out. We'll move on six thirty three. Is that an happened with the president, when he doesn't immigration for reform? Or here's what I wanna do. No one comes back with a counter offer. No one. I'm not hearing, the governor come back with accountable to Senator Sweeney. Here's here's part of the thing. Joe, he said, if these bills don't get past he's gonna put it to the public, he's gonna put it to the voters to get them to vote on either this year next year. So he's basically saying the governor Murphy. Hey, here's my idea. I'm willing to talk with you come to some type of resolution and Murphy already has fired back saying, you know, I'm not going to be bullied this, and that whatever. You know what if it's it's what what's today, may seventeenth the budgets, got to be approved by the end of June. Right. I'm telling you, I think if these to keep butting heads, we're gonna have another government shutdown in about forty five days for third party candidate for. I think I'm just saying Franken fibers. And this is not even I think that always true, or at least independent candidate. But I think you know, this is democrat on democrat violence. You know it's not unlike the gridlock in Washington over immigration ever happened to jersey. Right, exactly. Which is pretty partisan. This is all. Yuna partisan. This is all within the Democratic Party itself. So that is interesting. George norcross. He sold his lawyer then north crosses lawyer sent letters to the private residences of the governor and other people that are involved in this whatever plan of business. You know, whatever and basically the, the, the governor's spokesman saying he's trying to intimidate us trying to harass us with these letters. I mean look, I don't know Norcross crosses, really a guy that you pardon the pun one across. I mean this is some serious skies. Some good work for Camden. Yeah. You know what do you should see Camden? Now the way it came from being the most dangerous city in the world. You're absolutely right. Georgia's Wilson credit governor Christie for for an Christine Todd Whitman. The Republicans really did a great job in bringing Camden back, working mayor down there. And George Norcross was front and center, so, yeah, not, not a man to be recognized when George Norcross, the Jon Corzine, Chris Christie, get together for dinner the other night. Okay. Something's going on here because. Christie, and I don't really like one another. I know ten your quote have a relationship. But when you put those three in the room, I mean, come on. And again, Norcross, ripping Murphy, the other day saying he thinks he's the king of England and his wife is the Queen of England. I mean you know, he's taking any prisoners here. But the fact that Sweeney and Murphy have been at loggerheads since very beginning. I mean screens to me that Murphy wants to try, and we'll sit out very very well. Thank you very much. Look at us though we stay the daily jersey. It's a soap opera. The mayor of New York is running for president of United States. You can't make that up and you can't make up the friction that's happening within the assembly of the Senate and the governor's office, the great state of New Jersey. But we ain't going nowhere. Yeah. We pay the tolls. We do we pay the taxes that we still say your family's this week, by the way. Thank you. Got a good weekend coming up, you working at all going down to Washington after the show today. My sister is graduating and then from college having thank you having this ball. A lot of us are going to know. My fiancee is driving down ice objected the Amtrak. But does sucks. Drink after the show. Pretty good chance on Friday. Wherever I was that. I'd be drinking MARTINI glass in the car. Taking more. I know easy. I will tell you. This quick anecdote yesterday. Joe? Yesterday. My old friend Marlena was in town. So we meet for two and I go to my local watering hole trinity, and they have now replaced MARTINI glasses with champagne style. The shell glasses. All over New Yorker doing this driving me crazy. So I was outraged, I refuse to have a second MARTINI bottle. So then I switched to whiskey which when the weather's nice, I, I usually like clear, they said, there's not a whole MARTINI glass in the whole place, switched to whiskey meat. And then I get word that around the corner from here. Vans, that there is a bullet party, meaning free bullet bourbon and free bullet ri- for about an hour and a half. The bat signal when I hear. Not. Exactly. Cartoons where the? He run so quickly. The only thing left is a silhouette of the person that was me when I got the bullets signal. So I run over to Bobby vans and consume generously. The, the bullet bourbon, obviously, I fall asleep on the express bus stop meeting. I was then an hour late from my dinner with Mike cusak.

"Eight six six, if you're holding, please continue to hold. We respect your time we're going to get back in just a second. I wanna point out last night on Tucker Carlson on the mothership on the Fox News channel. It's Tucker was talking with a retired army Colonel Douglas McGregor. And he was, you know, this is the guy down in the trenches for over thirty years. And he was talking about the possibility that this is a manufactured crisis. We'll play a sound bite of the retired army Colonel. But then while you're listening and afterwards, I want you to think if this is, in fact, a manufactured crisis, which I think it is, even if even if Iran was to say oh, now you're aircraft tar aircraft carriers target. And even if you know. Sadly, they did sabotage those Saudi oil tankers. Is that a cause for war? And do you think the possibility exists that the Israeli in the United States government could have flown a false flag others, not me, but others are making that, that accusation. But let's play this is Douglas McGregor retired Colonel on Tucker Carlson last night on the mothership on the Fox News channel clip free. Please just we've got a manufactured crisis. There's nothing new in this intelligence. We've been operating in this area for several years now the Iranians and we were both interested in destroying the same target ISIS. Yes. And we always knew there was friction and hostility there, we've managed to avoid any problems Iranians have avoided any problems. So it's hard to buy the notion that we now have to have a carrier battle group in the Persian Gulf, along with hundreds of aircraft flying in from all over the world in order to deter Iran from attacking us, I think about that. And as I mentioned earlier there. Is the issue with China and ongoing trade agreements. China is watching as is Russia China has not commented, but Vladimir Putin. Of course, you know, had had a stick his nose in, and, you know, get a comment, but then, again, secretary of state Mike Pompeo was there. But Douglas McGregor actually commented on the future implications with Russia and China again from Toco Carson last night, clip number four, please, Justin. It's designed.

"That the attorney general is conceiving of himself as the president's lawyer, not the people's lawyer as someone who really was trying out for the role of president's attorney by sending in unsolicited nineteen page memo, attacking Robert Muller's theory of obstruction, and that his conduct sense becoming attorney general suggests that he thinks his central role here is to defend the president and to make the best case he can on the evidence given him by Muller that the president was cleared even though there's voluminous evidence in the report that misty's inappropriate actions. Did in fact, take place, right? Four hundred thirty four pages every American can decide for themselves. So there's no there there. They don't like the way it was rolled out. That's basically questions so Senator Feinstein's opening remarks actually have been released. She's actually reading them out now, and maybe William bar had a heads up, but he could not be more board and he's just waiting for her to finish. So we'll see how this goes. And see if she has a follow up or she will just turn it over it looks as if they're only getting five minutes. She's speaking for four why the heck what what is with these people. She's got seventy years experience. And and why would she sit there and ramble right through the entire thing. She's the ranking member maybe he's going to get questions a little bit different Feinstein started her questions at ten twenty where now at ten twenty seven ten twenty seven and a half. So Gourock to me if you bring somebody in and the country wants answers, you should give them a chance to answer. Would certainly help. Me. I will do some analysis will bring back any sound that might be coming out. So she's listing all the things that that show up at the report that there are no explanations for meanwhile, the pivoting over to what's happening in Venezuela this morning, the John Bolton hopped on with us and talked about the latest developments. And there is a fear among some people that this is going to end up like another serious situation where Assad just refused to leave and the Russians make sure he doesn't he has no popular support. But the Russians come in and make sure that he survives. The Russians have taken the gold out of the country wrote a lot of money, and they told Madero evidently to get off the plane and and stick around. So he's off the plane is sticking around even know hiding in a fortress and refusing to come out. Don mcgary Douglas McGregor is Lieutenant Colonel. And he says I don't like this situation.

He's got to do that. If we're going to put him into power and keep him into power. We have to spend billions of dollars to keep him there. So we turn Venezuela into the fifty first state effectively pouring resources into keeping their over time. Our history and Latin America is a disaster. We will incur the hostility of the population. They'll want us ultimately to leave. And if he is viewed as a puppet, he's gonna have trouble lasting. Okay. A couple of things this total fiction. Guido? Does he want to be leader even run when he wants to do is take over in lineup elections. Number two is because they had a cryptic tater ship. That was supposed to be a democracy that ended up being crony capitalism that lead to.

For coming on the radio with me great good morning so Colonel I want to ask you about your recent column regarding the number of, four star generals and admirals in the military, these days but you I came on my radar screen I guess a few weeks ago when I caught an interview that you did on Tucker Carlson's program on the, Fox News channel regarding Iran and you made the case I think very persuasively that a. War with Iran would not be in America's best interests, but now this week we're instituting new sanctions on Iran certainly the rhetoric seems to be Racha Joining up between our two countries in a, nutshell can you give us your take on where the state of US Iranian relations is. And what we should be looking to gain in any, sort of a new agreement with Iran Well the president made it clear that he's open, to talking to the leadership of Iran and even. Though we received initially a negative response I would not rule out that. Possibility the the sanctions are having a very profound effect the economy in that. Country, is really in ruins and I, think the Iranians would like some relief so I think, we should just wait and see where this takes us, but, the good news is that I think Mr., Trump has made it clear no we're not interested in the war. But we simply don't want Iran to develop nuclear capability and he's. Put the ball in. Their court and said look we'll talk. And we'll reach a new agreement but it has. To be an agreement that precludes, any nuclear capability and that would also include the the missiles that carry the, warheads we just don't know at this point we'll have to see but the truth, is the economy is in ruins as you've seen in North Korea which was on the verge of internal implosion of people in the United States knew it when you face economic Comic Armageddon you tend to rethink your position yeah well that's for sure so. It, sounds like you think the president, is pursuing the right course of action by instituting these, new sanctions no I think so and to be Frank, with, you there are reasons for Iran and the, United States to cooperate strategically many of your listeners may not realize. It but for decades we actually had a very good relationship with. Iran and to be. Blunt we share many of the same. Enemies we're facing ISIS number one right well yeah. That's the tip of the iceberg, because there are lots and lots and lots of ISIS like entities all over, the Middle East and North Africa Well and you know just lastly on the Iranian front because I do want to ask you about your fascinating column on the four star. Generals a lot, of people say look Iran is a bad bunch of guys they are a theocracy and they're a, state sponsor of, terrorism supporting groups like Hezbollah. Is that true and if that. Is. True, how can we. Work even with when our shared strategic interests are in common with a group of folks like that well the? President, has actually worked. Effectively behind the scenes with Moscow, and Russia of course has been supportive of your Ron in many. Ways but if you go back over the, last several months, the Russians have made it very clear to Iran that they will not. Tolerate the presence of Iranian forces in. Syria that are there to. Attack. Israel, and, in fact one of the issues that was discussed privately behind the scenes at Helsinki was, cooperation to essentially secure not just Israel but also Jordan To ensure that they are not drawn into. Any problems in Syria that may erupt in the future. Between, Iran and frankly, increasingly Turkey which really hasn't hit the news so the the bottom line is that I think the and I was just. Over in Israel by the, way, a few weeks ago and he really. We're very pleased with the fact that both Moscow and Washington, art agreement about preserving. The security along? Israel's frontier particularly in front, of his blah and across the Golan Heights so I think that our biggest concern our red line let's face it? To, is the Golan Heights and northern Israel and I think that's in good, shape and, Syria I think the war is over and increasingly. You're going to have a regime there that'll that'll be, under Assad but that regime is is going to be kept under control by Moscow and Washington and I think we can be grateful for that what. Happens beyond that, in the Middle East is anybody's guess which is working with Colonel Douglas McGregor you had a great, great column called, reduced the unknown Needed four-star overhead I have to confess I never really thought about, how many, four star, generals we have or how many. We need or how many should have how many four star generals do we have currently and how does that compare with where we've. Been historically well, the number is actually thirty eight I thought it was thirty five when I I wrote the article it turns, out we have thirty eight four stores from all of the. Services for a force of a little over one million, and the point I was trying to make is during World, War Two in just the US army and US. Army air corps combined we had eight point two million soldiers and airmen and we only had four four star. Generals MacArthur Eisenhower Arnold and Marshall of course and these these officers managed to win, the second World War commanding eight point two million. Men and there were only four four star generals today we've got thirty eight four stars including the. The most recent army for store and as Donald Trump Points out we've had nothing but disaster for the last seventeen years so my point is no no private sector corporation in the world would run this way it's it's laughable why do we have so many four star? Generals, why did we go from four. That allowed us to win the. Second world with eight point three. Million soldiers to thirty eight in which, we're caught in quagmire in Afghanistan Iraq Syria you name it well it really got off. The ground in the nineteen eighties when we finally pass legislation that created a unified command of the the major regional commands around the, world and we named four stores in command of them and then we essentially, walked away from it saying okay. Now we've, got regular, theaters for the future it'll be permanently organized and that's a good thing we didn't pay too much attention.

"Thanks again to Colonel Douglas McGregor and his insight on Afghanistan would you, think, Mitch, I, thought, it was amazing. That he came out and actually, said that the big issue is all these Bush Obama officer says, he's inherited, I, I, commend him for. Having the integrity to do that Looks than Obama, higher fired literally. Over one hundred. And forty flag officers was serious combat experience we've got an. Awful lot of people, in the core here now that do not have that level of experience and I don't think he's getting good advice I never like McMasters. From, day one and I am really lukewarm on general Kelly Martina your, take? I thought it was an? Amazing interview in that it provided a lot of common sense and historical perspective of why the southern. Border needs to be protected by the. Army as. It had been. In the past. And that Afghanistan has sadly been a waste of resources and human tragedy when it was four thousand surge I thought why what is this, all about and I happen to know. A couple of people. That are there and they're. Wrapping, up their deployment they, were reservists, that were called up. All right thanks. For that let's move on have you, heard of permit Patty who called the. Police on a twelve year old girl for selling water. On a hot day in Oakland the girl didn't have a permit. Hermit Patty calls the police the incident is not unusual however another incident in Charleston South Carolina an adult called, police on a boy he was selling roses. Without a permit and then there's other, instances across America people calling police on a Twelve year old for summer lawn mowing business what is going on that adults are ratting out kids it seems stupid but in the three cases that I just described the regulations and those who called were. For health and safety so those, people that, called? Said this is not hell? Healthy and this is not a safe Martina this reminds me of that show bewitched where they had. MRs Kravitz the nosy neighbor that got. Into everybody's. Business it's ridiculous. And it crushes. The entrepreneurial spirit of these young people I remember as a kid holding down different jobs and it was part of a learning experience and, socializing with people and earning a few. Extra bucks over summer. It was a wonderful experience. And, and to their point, well maybe, it has to do. With liability or. How issues that might be related to, serving lemonade but really a permit for. Bottled water come on Mitch Precisely mowing somebody's lawn presents absolutely no health scare or health concerns whatsoever now. If you're selling water that's not in bottles and things. Like, that I could understand the concern but bottled water is not an issue and I'm pretty sure, that selling flowers is not going to threaten anyone else I find this amusing The details on this was. These are adults calling I don't. Think these are adults I think these. Are. Left wing looms, okay and, these people you know want to control every aspect of your. Life to, Martinez point you know. The thing about entrepreneurialism we're losing, it in this country. Especially among young people so, on the one hand we. Want to encourage this, on the other hand I can see the flip, side, where people say hey this kind of. Creates a lopsided market what about all those businesses that have permits there's gotta. Be some, middle ground I, mean if your. Kids that's, one thing I mean do we want to start allowing adults? To do it too and this leads back into this whole notion that we have. Regulation in this country it's endemic and it leads to more and more on permanent businesses that. Are run by adults so I think we just need to re tweak this whole formula that strikes me is that on the, on, the oncein aside many many people in America complain that. Children aren't getting outdoors they had read an article. Just the other day that said. Something about. Per week they're outdoors Maybe five to seven hours. Outdoors they don't skin their knees they don't swing. On tire trees the tire swings. They can't Well it, was brought up with a tie cave rescue. Boys will be boys they're going to run into caves all. Right things, happen but it's all part. Of sort of parenting so the, kids can figure out the. Big wide wonderful world and yes, there's risks and so forth If. I'm a parent, and. Your for this kind of regulation. Then don't come to. Me later if you're a parent. Don't come to. Me later and say well. I'm so mad that you know my kid might chitchat do this, or can't do that because you're. Part of the problem you're, absolutely, right Mitch? The regulations are over the. Top they're out of. Control we don't let kids be kids they're not maturing they're becoming cisa cisa fide. Many are couch potatoes and getting fat at computer games and they. They're just not exploring the world and then, parents later on say what happened I don't understand my. Kid, I don't get it they never had that. Opportunity to have the opportunity. Because we'd been come over regulated. It's stifling.
