Richard Grenell is a disastrous DNI choice
"President trump has long been accused of priding loyalty to him above all other qualities. Way above experience way above independence. His critics such as house speaker. Nancy Pelosi today are arguing that the appointment of Richard Grenell to be the acting director of national intelligence is just the latest case in point. Grenell the current. Us Ambassador to Germany is hardly known for his intelligence expertise. He is primarily known and beloved by conservatives for his outspoken defense advocacy of the president and his policies as C. N. N.'s. Alex Marquardt reports. Grenell also has a long history of rhetorical knife fighting as a fierce even vicious partisan the director of national intelligence is a job that by definition demands experience requires objective presentation of intelligence and a non political approach in Rick Grenell. The president has chosen. The direct opposite are found. The position of director. Nash intelligence a very tough. And so I I can't imagine The challenge that somebody has in that position learning. Abc's of intelligence on the job. American critics like Democratic Senator Ron Wyden on the Senate intelligence committee blasting the choice today as proof that president trump values unquestioning obedience over the safety of the American people. That sentiment echoed by House Speaker. Nancy Pelosi today. Who said Grenell's sole qualification is his absolute loyalty to the President Senior. Republicans though are silent over making Grenell. The acting director which by law is someone who shall have extensive national security expertise. Grenell has no intelligence or military experience. He's the current ambassador to Germany. A loyal attack dog for president trump. Who has a history of vulgar sexist now deleted tweets about women including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former first lady? Michelle Obama saying Michelle. Obama is working out on the biggest loser. She is sweating on the East Room's carpet. There are times where what was intended to be. Humorous turned out to be not so humorous. While many trump allies want to see the president tweet less Grenell supports. It makes my job so much easier. I like having a president who's willing to be very tough. Grenell replaces acting Director Joseph. Maguire a retired admiral and former navy seal who has been leaving the intelligence communities seventeen different organizations since last August McGuire had stayed under the president's radar rarely speaking in public. But he did voice his support for the whistle blower who sparked the investigation that led to the impeachment of president trump. I want to stress that I believe that the whistle blower and the inspector general have acted in good faith throughout so jake. This now means that yet another player in this Ukraine investigation. Joseph Maguire is being pushed out the news coming the same day that a top Pentagon official John Rude who is also involved was asked to resign truth tellers and non loyalists clearly not valued by the trump administration. Meanwhile Rick Grenell tweeted today that this is a temporary appointment and that the president will nominate someone else to be Director of National Intelligence. Soon
Trump declares victory following acquittal in impeachment trial
"We begin tonight with the conclusion of president trump's impeachment trial in the Senate on Wednesday the Senate voted to acquit president trump of obstruction of Congress and abuse of power met rami was the lone GOP lawmaker to join Democrats in finding him guilty of abuse of power the next day president trump appeared at the White House to celebrate his acquittal and denounced Democrats and the investigations that have dogged his presidency president trump also deliver his third state of the union address on Tuesday night he claimed credit for the stronger economy and vowed to quote never let socialism destroyed American health care the issue has taken center stage in the twenty twenty presidential race here to discuss this politico senior writer Carl Ameren Nucci and NPR senior editor and correspondent Ron Elving he joins us by Skype from the nation's capital welcome to you both Ron let's start with you we are hearing today that lieutenant colonel Alexander vin men who and his twin brother are being fired and removed from the White House he was one of the witnesses called during the impeachment investigation he provided very damaging testimony against the president what is this firing tell us about how trump gonna act moving forward and could there be any repercussions for the president or his administration you know there were two theories on the part of the senators who were voting on impeachment one was that the president was going to have learned his lesson and that he was going to moderate his behavior that does that does not seem to have been borne out by his behavior thus far at the prayer breakfast on Thursday or at his victory lap speech in the east room or now today as he has begun and we don't think he's finished cleaning out some of the people that he thinks betrayed him and the impeachment proceedings including a lieutenant colonel Benjamin and his brother who was actually on staff over in the Senate for some other people but seems to have lost his job in the same hour I mean it's not just the president that could potentially suffer repercussions we have senators like Susan Collins from Maine who it said she hoped the president would learn lessons she is one of a handful of senators that Democrats hope to defeat in November what do you think this means for them look I think it's gonna fire of the Democrats they are already donating in record amounts to the on the opposition in all of those cases when you talk about college attack on more than like Sally this is this is but it's going to keep the Republicans fired up as well this whole week is an example of of the kind of I mean a rancor and hostility we seen between the parties it is not going away anytime soon it is going to extend probably on the next election I think we've we've gone the other residents a suite yeah it definitely feels like we are already in the selection run I wanna bring you back in here the impeachment vote was on Wednesday the only person who you could say maybe didn't act in a partisan manner was Utah senator Mitt Romney he was the sole Republican vote on that first article of impeachment on abuse of power do you think that in anyway rob's trump of this talking point that this is a purely partisan witch hunt it doesn't seem to have deterred him from using exactly that language what it does add a note an asterisk if you will Mitt Romney was the first person to vote to remove from office a president of his own party we've had party lines stepped over in the past in previous impeachments but always to defend someone not to remove them so he does become a unique voice in all the history of impeachment that's not something we're going to hear from the White House White House is in some sense is trying to ignore him but is also made some rather direct shots at him hiding behind his religion or using religion as a crutch because he mentioned his Mormon faith when he gave the speech on the floor and was quite an emotional speech about why he felt he had to follow the facts that had been presented to the Senate and vote for the president's removal from office Carlos you think there could be any political repercussions for Ronnie I mean obviously he has a target on his back when it comes to the White House look his own newspapers in Utah have stood up for him but there's no question about it there's going to be political repercussions for him and for his state and that's I think going to be of concern to hand the president has already mentioned is such an antibody I think that he's getting support from Democrats it's interesting to watch but it was also interesting to watch the silence the came out of the Senate people that have known him for years people have respected him for years have not come forward to to to the firm for him in any way so I think we're going to see how this plays out he but he's willing to take the heat he made

Trump unveils his "realistic two-state solution" for Middle East
"Is president Donald Trump speaking just a few hours ago and announcing the peace plan that might actually be the peace plan that works between the Israelis and the so called Palestinians it is a great accomplishment I think and I think that his son in law Jared Kushner has been working on this for some time but Donald Trump role that plan out today standing right next to Benjamin Netanyahu the prime minister of Israel standing next to him at the White House in the east room saying that his plan could be the last opportunity for the Palestinians the Palestinian liberation organization has already rejected the plan it says that it recognizes Israel's colonization and annexation of occupied land so they're back to the same old language they use for a long time but I'm gonna keep my powder dry and and have best hopes for how this is going to work out to talk about a representative Ted but who's a member of Congress to north Carolina's third congressional district joins me now congressman thanks for taking the time to deal with it was good to see a last week out west as well and good to chat with you tonight it's nice to have you on because here's here's the concern I've got I want to see some kind of you know plan that works and if people say well why is this a problem for Americans the American interest I think is not only are the Israeli as our allies but the Palestinians are constantly ginning up attacks on our allies missiles and terrorist attacks within Israel if we could get peace in that region and get the other Arab nations and the Palestinians to recognize the right of the state of Israel to exist week we'd see the president solved one of the thorniest problems that we have anywhere on the globe so does this plan have what it takes to make that happen I think it's a great start and what would you really going to see how that's received by the Palestinians and that's the you know yet to be determined that was the integrations go for that I've seen this you know top line but you got to really look at the geography when you look to the north and you see Lebanon northwest you it did you look to the northeast you see that these are simply proxy state ran to the the big issue is much bigger for Israel and just this Middle East peace plan because there are factors not included in this peace plan but just how is the rand want to receive this but it is much more complex than just what being addressed here but I think it's a good start and I think I'm I'm very proud of president trump proceeding on this Jared Kushner course you know of course being Jewish himself and having a great relationships there with Netanyahu and having that yeah right next to I did not think that he would be as for this this Tuesday type of plan but you know I'm encouraged I'm encouraged to see how this is going to be received well whatever the coming weeks you know congressman I've been there five times and I've always been impressed with what they've done but they're surrounded by states that have vowed to destroy Israel so anything that gets in the point where their neighbors start to admit that they have a right to exist I mean I know I would have a tough time living in a neighborhood of my neighbors all said we're only going to be happy when your dad Lars we don't accept that you have a right to exist it's tough to negotiate there but the president is laid something out that preserves Israel's you know geographic integrity it preserves Jerusalem is a city that any of us can go to which literally wasn't the truth before nineteen sixty seven when the old boundaries are there the one that Obama the boundaries that Obama wanted to bring back and impose which I thought was foolish and it offers the Palestinians you want to state you get a state out of this you want to you want to be able to run your own affairs you run your own affairs and when you're when you've set that stayed up and it's been established the president even said we will be happy to establish a U. S. embassy they're so they'll get recognition from from the United States so it sounds like a pretty good deal although going all the way back to Arafat they've turned down pretty good deals before but if the president is saying this is sort of your last shot and if you turn this one down then then where do we go from there but but again it has the potential to work if if the rest of the world maybe can can muscle the Palestinians and that some of their backers their terrorist backers including the state of Iran into backing down and letting them have their state and leading Israel exists one of the first things we need to stay at the lack of good will from the Palestinians to the Israelis is to see the Palestinian stopping rocket in Israel and stop and stop supporting terrorism against Israeli civilians that would be great and you know we're also seeing a lot of anti semitism arise around the world and our country as well but so many of these attitudes influence the peace deal but it'll be a great start for the Palestinians just but let's chosen peace and good will and let's see if we can have some we go chasing here our Congress so let's see how far we can go with this I don't like anti semitism either I'm an unabashed fan of Israel just as I love his religious I love my own country but you've got a couple of members of Congress if you're looking for anti semitism all you have to do is look down the hall to to leave and and Omar don't you I can look across the aisle and the committee on financial services and and see the anti semitism there so yeah it's it's really tough who would have thought that two years ago that we would have this but we certainly do now it's a real problem even in cities like New York which as you know such a great presence of of our friends from Israel there but you know it it's it's really scary and we're addressing this about a resolution on this which in in partnership with lease Elton of of New York and we're really forgiveness head on we want to expose it so that we can deal with that and put a stop to anti semitic card so what does it take here I mean can we as you said you've got some some Democrat friends on this is this one where the Republicans on the Democrats could actually get together and work on this together and say look here I mean the the support for Democrats from Israel or from the Jewish people in the United States is is almost overwhelming are Republicans get a very small percentage of the Jewish vote the United States Democrats get the most of it you think the Democrats would want to get on board something that supports peace for the Middle East and and a and a state for the Palestinians have always complained that they don't have a state you know I don't think either Republicans or Democrats should own this issue I think just being a great Americans being friends of Israel being decent human beings we should be against anti semitism so I don't want to own this as a Republican it seems increasingly that we are but we're very open to working with people either side of the aisle and working together on this I think I'm encouraged that we will be able to but will say I know the representatives out of course he's on financial services committee is a Republican great under the president and you know was one of the managers on our side for the defense but just a great member of Congress but we we look forward to having some Democrats so at join us as well in this fight against anti semitism board sure insure be nice if the the party and again I would love to see you bye bye be a part bi partisan solution as well but if the party that gets almost no support from Jewish Americans is the one that's leading the way on peace in in the state of Israel and the party that gets most of the votes from that side is is dragging its feet that's that's a pretty sad situation I'd love to see the major media kinda hold some feet to the fire and say can you get on board a plan like this congressman rod it's a pleasure to have you on the program thanks

"east room" Discussed on News Radio 690 KTSM
"And there's no greater source of misery in his world then not matter right Thomas Friedman could be the biggest dope in the world but because he is the foreign policy columnist at The New York Times I even the label he could write as he does the stupidest and most ignorant things and be regarded as a genius without having to do anything other than right his columns praising the Chinese in The New York Times or now ripping Donald Trump he's miserable because he doesn't matter his side lost and he's got no place where he matters his New York times columns and his New York times paper have not been able to get rid of Donald Trump his pals at CNN and The Washington Post have not been able to get rid of Donald Trump now when was Thomas Friedman happy this is the real point that I want to make Obama was smart Obama new the egos of the sick offense in the media that left him the dirty little secret as an Obama never liked them he was always suspicious their members of the press and they could at any time conceivably turned on him now that was very unlikely but I'll guarantee you Obama is like most other left wing authoritarian state do not like the press at all they don't like prying eyes even if they are supposedly friendly so Obama ran a really really smart operation to bring all these people in and I'll never forget it early on in his administration the first term Obama makes a big deal about having miniature summits at the White House in the east room a summer in every for all four corners and then two more on along the longest walls longest walls of the room in one corner was the employment group and then the health care group and then the stimulus group and over here some other groups some other group doing some other little afternoons work on policy and Obama announced this it was all over television it was televised he would bring these people at a included Thomas Friedman in the employment group there were literally five or six people maybe more around a table in one of the corners of the east Roman freedmen was one of the participants in the in the employment or what were these people going what comes out a minute then over here you had them the defense group over here than in the healthcare group and then whatever policies were of the day yeah the media figure in every one of these workshops is what they recall they were workshops where the problems of America we're going to be solved in an afternoon my friends that's when Thomas Friedman was happy when he was included in one of those why he matter the president of the United States wanted his the import and work on how to create jobs it was a beautiful thing and CNN is covering this thing they didn't go wall to wall on it but they checked in with various strategic points in the afternoon so the thing starts with lunch at around eleven thirty or noon and then one o'clock they get serious and all the group's break up and they go to their various workstations in the east room and every hour or so Bible would come back into the room I don't know where he went probably this product or something he'd leave the room and all these groups of second fence but cancers that he brought him to fix healthcare the job situation and fix the deficit and fix whatever groups were he'd come in every hour and check in with them asking how they were doing CNN would televise I'll never forget when he got to Friedman's group Friedman was beaming Thomas Friedman was V. he was smiling he was sold for real old to be included in the in the in the work group here on creating jobs and at five o'clock it ended and Obama ended it with great fanfare he had made a couple of trips in the afternoon to each one of the groups Hey boys are you all doing here got a good idea for me on on former circumstance got the got a good idea of me on healthcare over here yes Mister present we do and these people were actually doing it they were sitting there talking to themselves sharing their brilliant ideas with one another on jobs and healthcare and what was the biggest sham I've ever seen because none of it mattered not if it was real Obama was not gonna listen to one thing these people suggested plus this is not how you fix problems but at the end of this day the media did their job and pointed out how Obama had done something never before he and he did so many different minds so many different levels of import to deal with jobs to deal with healthcare and the image was created that in a four and a half hour afternoon at the White House many of these gravely important issues have been solved the day we came up with a lot of good ideas noon but many of them but can implement version on creating jobs returning of full employment you're not as I'm sitting here I'm laughing myself silly all born job sitting down talking to each other in an exaggerated faculty lounge we're going to fix healthcare we're gonna fix jobs we're going to fix the defense budget we're gonna do whatever they're going to do in for half hours yes was classic this is exactly what happens in the faculty lounge at a major university they get around a chat among themselves talk about how stupid everybody else as that's actually doing work they sit there and they write and they reflect and they share and at the end of the day they think manner we smart we had a we broke it we just solve all these problems they didn't do diddly squat but at the end of the day Obama had made them feel like they matter all four day important and it would be impossible to ever criticize Obama after that and Furthermore the reports and then started coming that major progress was being made on unemployment major progress being made on the deficit whatever was so it was a giant illusion but it was it was not even that this was Obama using people for four and a half hours making them think that he was interested in their ideas and might actually implement some and they and the day thinking they really mattered and this guy is really smart to consult me this guy knows who to talk to so they they were made fools out and they looked happy being made fools of but Obama made him feel like they mattered he made him feel like they were relevant he made him feel like he thought they were brilliant he made him feel like he needed they made him feel like he couldn't know this on his own without them so he owned them for the next eight years he owned now let me ask you this what happened to jobs during Obama's eight years what happened to the economy in Obama's at your that what were we told is a new era of decline United States best days are behind us we're here to manage the decline you mean this is what these eggheads put together in for half hours this is it so by the time the next week roll

She announcing right there as the president did on Twitter moments ago at this point, maybe half an hour ago that she at the end of the month of June.

She was standing in the back Trump saw her back there, realized that he had broken this news and Astra to come up. She got a standing ovation. He embraced her. She just heard, you heard moments ago, the comments that she made brief emotional. And now the question is, who will replace Sarah Sanders, will that role evolve after she departs?

It was a very wide ranging press conference, and in general, the president did well, but there were several nasty confrontations, which I think served to actually underline the president's narrative about a press reflexively unfairly and disrespectfully hostile and yes, this is different from the way that members of the press treat, the president of the United States sitting near the front in this very big very large East Room.
