Do this actor thank you in our Co host Laura Collins, once again. Welcome back, Laura. She's the director in the Bush. Institute smu Economic Growth Initiative thank you. Thank Santa I. Only wake up early for this I know we. To Peel back the curtain we're here at about seven thirty in the morning in Dallas and Lauren I were comparing notes and turns out that one of us are morning. People so hector. We're looking. We're looking at you. Demand on. West Coast time. It's like five thirty in your body clock Oh. That's rough. Hector's here for our SME Economic Growth Advisory Council where he is one of them. Is that help guide the policy work that we do at the Bush Institute, because both of his expertise is the forty first administrator, the small business, and because his work with the Latino Coalition. Let's start with the former when you were with the small business administration. What was the goal of that department? What were you? You, all working on the small business. Administration was actually started in one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty, three by President Eisenhower and there were some small business programs before that, but they unified those all into one agency, and it's really the agency that supports and advocates for America's small businesses, and that role has become even more important over the years when they formed the SBA. There probably weren't thinking that was going to be over thirty million small businesses in the united. United States and I like to say nothing small about small business. They really are the engine of America, the engine that fuels the economy of America not only are there a lot of them, but they represent over fifty two percent of the gross output of the economy. It's the place that two-thirds the net new jobs of our economy comes from, and it's also the place that a lot of our innovation comes from. That makes us the envy of the world. World in terms of our economy so very very important agency. A lot of people have heard of it, but they oftentimes don't know everything it does. Where does your passion for Small Business? Come from a well? That's easy. I was fortunate to be born into an entrepreneurial family, so the first business owners I ever met where my mother and father and my father was especially a serial entrepreneur. He loved business. He loves starting businesses. I'm not saying he loved running. My mother ran the business ideas, man yeah, but I learned a lot about a small business I used to joke that everything I learned about business. I learned in a Mexican restaurant because that's why I worked when I was a little kid. What jobs is you? Hold with your parents Oh, a lot of them, you know we were an immigrant family and. There was five children. My mother had five children six years. I have four younger sisters, and so we were all recruited to my father's executive training program very early on, so we all had to work <hes>. I remember waiting tables when I was nine years old. So And then I. as I got older, I got more responsibility and help run some of those businesses and start some of those businesses, and my father had a number of different businesses. We started off with the restaurant business, because that's an easy business to access, but then later on <hes> at a little import export business, a little construction business, none of those businesses wherever really large, but they were very important to our family helps support us. They helped educate, and we learned a lot about being in business and working with the community and customers, and so your father came to America start these businesses. He actually didn't. My father was an immigrant to the United States in the late nineteen fifties. I don't think he was planning on staying that long. But he met my mother. My mother is also from immigrant parents from Mexico <hes> they've shown love, and and of all places they started their journey in Kansas City Missouri that's where I was born. I grew up in Kansas City Missouri and my father. He had a lot of different jobs as a lot of immigrants do when they first get here. His first jobs were picking. Picking potatoes for fifty cents an hour in rural Missouri and later on, he worked at a railroad, a literally pounding the spikes into the ground, but in the winter it got too cold, so he moved into <hes>. He started working in the livestock business, and it was very difficult. <hes> dirty work. He was cleaning out stalls, but at least it was warmer than being outside. When he was working at the railroad later on he, he was a janitor at the school that I would eventually go to, but my father used to always say that he was a business owner, and I would say dad. You have these jobs. You're not a business owners. They know what I have to do right now, but eventually alone my own business, so he was very passionate about that. He always wanted to work for himself, so he starts so then he starts these businesses and his career trajectory starts trending too so far up that start happening. Yeah, my father was a very visionary leader <hes> very. Very charismatic <hes> you know he when he's grown up used to say know. I came here with nothing I didn't know anybody. I didn't speak the language. I had no money I had no power, but I believed in myself I was willing to work hard, and this is such a great country that affords us the opportunity to go as far as we WANNA go. We're only limited by our own imagination our own commitment, so he he's. We started these businesses, but later on my father was kind of an organizer as well, and he wanted to belong to the Chamber of Commerce. This is in Kansas City. Number of others spanning businesses. There were there at the time, and my father started asking. Where's the Hispanic Chamber? And they said well. There isn't an Hispanic Chamber. My Dad said well there should be, and if nobody else is going to start it, I will so my father was one of the founders of the Kansas City Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, that was in the mid seventies,

"Hecker Baretto grew up an entrepreneurial immigrant family that believed in hard work. His father even had him in his quote. Unquote executive training program which early on consisted of waiting tables in the family restaurant, and that training must have taken hold because that zeal for hard work carried through Hector's life. He eventually headed up the small business administration and the Bush administration from two thousand one to thousand and five, and now serves as chairman of the Latino coalition and through those life experiences. Hector has remained grounded in thinking. Thinking of America the land of opportunity, it is like no other country in the world. There's something very very special. We should never take that for granted for those of us that opportunity travel we. We understand that we have something really really special here, and we should always serve to protect it.

they're not just the static there Asian Pacific islanders as well many cases are more Americans than most Americans are that's a great point of more Americans than Americans twenty twenty by no opens the door to more bizarre opinions and policies mayor Pete begs for applause and Sanders attacked while he sits with culture Warren and watch Iowa slip away because they're stuck in impeachment hearings I think it is appropriate at this point for me to admonish both the house managers and the president's council in equal terms avoid speaking in a manner and using language that is not conducive to civil discourse end of the beginning day one of the impeachment narrative it is is in play day two will start in a couple hours it's the Senate version as Senate Republicans get their way we'll review day one in preview a day to Hogan Gidley waiting on deck and a McCarthy the bottom of the hour Hogan Gidley of course a special assistant to president trump White House deputy press secretary I imagine he's not calling from airforce one I imagine he stayed home from Davos under the present according to reports even politicos you've been really good high spirits series of bilaterals talking trade talking international relations trying to unify around the Iranian policy trying to force your to get along with it and drop out of the Iranian deal and on top of that I try to get people like Pakistan to start play a positive role when it comes to Afghanistan it certainly would help when he opened it up to questions I'm feeling Barris is all the questions about domestic squabbling and people don't even get it the Ukrainians for the internet respective say there was no problem for the foreign minister there was no problem there was no pressure the aid is all there the tactics in style the president or all apparent with three years in but of course that to the questions were about cut one but if this were president Obama said a president trump of this with the other side people would have long ago been in jail I will tell you we have a great Attorney General he's highly respected is a highly ethical man he's doing a fantastic job let's see how it all comes out Nancy Pelosi is a disgrace to our country and she was spend more time trying to look at San Francisco which is going to hell you look at what's going on in San Francisco people don't even recognize it as a city and it was sent to Maria Bartiromo play more of those cuts as well the president heads back and I'm sure he did watch some of the hearings last night to to know for sure let's go to amend the nose Hogan Gidley okay do you make the trip right I did not make the trip I gotta say here in and and deal with this clown show a little bit right last night what's your take there was some give as Mitch McConnell said alright I'll give you three days instead of twenty four hours to make your case now we see democratic senators out there saying how unfair this process is how do you view it look I'm not going to take a lecture in fairness from the house who did not allow our administration any witnesses we couldn't present any evidence we couldn't cross examine the completed this in the dark in the shadows seventeen witnesses they were allowed we got zero six of the seven managers they quote unquote put in charge of this all claimed to be for impeachment or would work toward impeachment before this thing even started to this whole case Kevin bacon for quite some time and have to tell you for the for the Democrats put Adam Schiff a management caught lying multiple times about Russia collusion evidence he didn't have that didn't exist and may have a totally phony phone conversation about Ukraine ever happen and a lot of the staff had no contact with a whistleblower we found out they did he should be completely disqualified from this process but regardless the facts on our side the present did nothing wrong and you saw that last night with a simple case outlined by our attorneys are council purses them scrambling around taking up massive amounts of time with no case except to say Hey we have iron clad evidence is overwhelming but let's start off by getting more evidence we need more witnesses because they know they don't have a case well I mean things to develop and there is a Washington post story they talked about additional information and there was left part is who they make sure that the nation's got a chance to know is there and Rudy Giuliani is the godfather to one of his kids and said these very disappointed I'm does the president view him as somebody that he knows and has changing his story how do how do you view the president's health to prison expresses relationship with them with Mr partners yeah well look the president actually make comments about this this morning is press conference from Davos he said he didn't know him have you taken a picture possibly it seem like he said he was kind of a group he was already using the the always at these events look it is not new to the media to call someone a saga they did Mr part as and when he comes out against the president the now all the cities it does that town they've done that time and time again and make a mistake when your your strategy is to go on MSNBC hang out with a New York times have conversations with them go on CNN and now we know the a league audio and video those outlets have one desire and one goal to take on the president yeah I have to wonder if Mr part as it is on the up and up not to mention the fact he's under indictment in out on bail right now for federal crimes so you know I I don't have any reason to believe Mr pointed to telling the truth because he has a track record of lying in the past right so what can we expect today how would that our listeners you know SO we talk about rules we voted our rules every single one of Chuck Schumer's amendments was rejected on a pure party basis all fifty three votes stayed hi Mitch McConnell's corner what's the agenda today as it's been explained to you well look at I think yesterday was kind of the the seminal moment in the fact that they didn't really argue the amendments they wanted they tried to lay out their case because they know they don't have one to the epic keep going back to the well keep trying to sell a lie to the American people the impeachment itself the articles don't have any crimes listed in there they don't have the word quid pro quo listed in there all the things they said were were important in order to solidify case against this president so moving forward and I want to get ahead of obviously a strategy from from our side but you're going to see more of the same today more the speculation more here say more conversations you know with your brothers cousins nephews former roommate they're going to try to make that stick to the present the fact is the of the seventeen witnesses they called only two in the house actually had direct conversations with the president and those two said the same thing when they talk to the president directly he said emphatically no quid pro quo I wanted nothing crane also be a was released to this whole thing is a purely political it has nothing to do with principal someone tell you put a because reporting today that Adam Schiff appears to a mis characterized a nother text message exchange between two players in this saga a possible where the GOP are they say will plug to capitalize on and here it is the issue arose when ship sent a letter to Nadler last week summarizing a trove of evidence from point as an indicted you know a boy Bynum in one action the letter says you've claims a point is continue to try to arrange a meeting with his Lansky setting a specific test messages centrepoint essentially any trying to get us you trying quote trying to get as much as he major of the exchange which was attached to the ship later was redacted which changed the complexion of the exchange is that something your team is aware of of course and I think more and more people are going to be aware of it today I I just have to tell you a little anecdote I was laughing we were looking on Twitter last night for traffic about impeachment I mean the Netflix earning Rick earnings report had forewarned gauge mints and then did this impeachment jam intelligent people know it and it's because of information like that Adam should have done this now on multiple occasions when you go before Congress you're lying your colleagues you're lying to the American people trying to pass off your own deranged demented words the United States and he's doing it again and time and time he's done it over time any consistently gets away with it nobody in the media even asks if he's telling the truth they just reported this fact in now our team over here understands what's at stake we understand the state of play and we know how Democrats act we seen it from the beginning of this he says as the present was elected and we are not going to let them get away with it and the media had a scintilla of integrity they too would call them out for this and and refused to book it needs on every show from sun up to sun down I don't know how the guy even get any work done because you don't media tour so to talk policy for second is by all reports of the presence of food was great and progress was strong I think personally you would know better I think he loves his bilateral stuff we can sit down with countries the leaders of countries and talk candidly without the cameras he was driving at the U. N. before Nancy Pelosi phone call about an impeachment inquiry in September I get it but now we understand with the phase one of China deal done with U. S. M. C. A. all but signed a just got to do something I believe in Canada that that's all done the presence pointing his focus on the European Union here's what he said they've been very difficult to deal with but ultimately it'll be very easy because if we can't make a deal have to put a twenty five percent tariff on the cars twenty or twenty five percent and I'm sure they're going to make a deal he's going to do it and they have to do it I mean they have no choice so eat I understand the tech firms getting taxes on hold you've seen this pattern before can you tell our.
