W bush ashley bavin whose daughter answered george bush's call and joined the us and fought in iraq in our air force and then protested on january six. You know she committed a crime of trespassing.

We're never going to know you know what maybe general milley can do. He could do us a solid and go behind the back of the Current fake president. And maybe he could get that name to us because he's a stand up guy. He cares about america. She was shot dead by a capital police officer. For no reason she wasn't carrying seven. She wasn't threatening anyone. And here. George w bush. The man who in a sense lured her into the us military. She signed up because of his war on terror. Here he is equating. Ashley babbitt to muhammad atta and all those other filthy jihadi psych psych of ads who attacked our hometown.

Terrorists to save lives in dc and this is what he said on the twentieth anniversary of nine eleven. This is the man who was president. When nine eleven happened cut to play cup little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home.

The Afghanistan Nightmare That George Bush Envisioned Has Arrived
"Look at why. We're in afghanistan in the first place. The nightmare that george bush envisioned is here. The nightmare has arrived and that is at ghanistan. now is being run by the taliban. It's gonna be a a clearinghouse for terrorists who of course aimed to destroy us. That's why we were in afghanistan in the first place now. We can debate how long we should have been there.

The military inviting didn't do that
MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace: '95 Percent of Americans Will Agree' With Biden Speech on Afghanistan

Ninety five percent of the american people will agree with everything he just said. Ninety five percent of the press covering this white house will disagree and for an american president to finally be completely aligned with such an overwhelming majority of what the american people think about. Afghanistan is probably a tremendous relief to the american people on. Can't even i have a president who's finally aligned with the american people because nicole wallace. This angry vicious miserable trump hating biden loving msnbc host decided that ninety five percent of the american people agreed with biden speech yesterday.
It's Time to Show Our Strength as Conservatives
"With me. But many of the things that I say behind this microphone, take hold in parts of this society or take hold in parts of the conservative movement. Whether it was March 2017 and I explained that They've been spying on President Trump and his campaign. You all remember all the crap we took for that? Whether it's pushing the idea of sanctuary, Second Amendment cities and states Whether it's explaining that the federal Constitution authorizes state legislatures to make changes to laws, not judges, not attorneys, general, not governors. Not bureaucrats. I can remember when we fought the so called comprehensive immigration reform that George Bush was pushed When so many others in this business said they're not activists. I said, like Hell, I am Member that Mr Producer That's a long time ago. Or the tea party movement. So many things that we've been together so many things that we have witnessed together. And yet, here we are today. Looking into the abyss. But I have no intention to jumping into you and I have no intention of being pushed into you. No. So it's time for push back. It's time to show our strength.

The Mystery Of The Pennhurst Asylum
"The eastern pennsylvania institution for the feeble minded and epileptic later called pinehurst asylum was originally established as a facility for the disabled opened in nineteen o eight. The property contained in array of buildings all scattered around large tracts of farmland in chester county. Thirty miles outside of philadelphia though it might sound like it was designed for care and comfort. The reality was anything. But the institute was first created to house intellectually and developmentally disabled people alongside those who suffered from epilepsy but this strategy was unwise as such patients had very different needs. What's worse is that. Many of the institutions goals were based on the nineteenth century eugenics movement proponents of the movement believed that the human gene pool should be protected and anyone deemed. Genetically inferior. Should be prevented from reproducing by forced sterilization or segregation from the rest of society. For this reason. People with certain kinds of disabilities whose families could not care for them were sent to penn hearst. Most of them came as infants or children. Girls and boys are separated into different buildings. So there wouldn't be any sexual mixing in the decades since the institution closed a slew of modern day rumors claim that penn hurst carried out forced sterilizations on its patients. But while sterilization did occur at similar institutions in the united states. There was actually no record of it at pinehurst. Rumors of the institute's horrific procedures ran rampant. The last perhaps this is because the hospital was shrouded in an era of mystery it operated almost completely independently of the outside world. It had its own power plant and produced its own. Food and supplies were brought in by a special rail. Line pen hurts was designed so that no one from the outside could get in but more importantly so that no one on the inside could ever get out. Georgie was carrying a stack of folded sheets toward the finish piles. When he noticed a girl arguing with an orderly. George stopped in his tracks. She had long shiny hair and was pointing a finger directly at him confidently shouting and screaming. He was instantly captivated and continued to watch her but eventually to more orderlies came over to give her a shot. And take away georgie side. Good things never lasted. Long at penn harris georgia's mother had left him there when he was only three. He never knew why not what he done or where she'd gone he'd been stuck in this place for twelve years and he knew it like the back of his hand. He knew that when the girl got taken away it was the last he'd see of her or so he thought The next day georgy walked into the laundry building at his heart nearly stopped there. She was if he someone else. He could've tapped on her shoulder and introduced himself but as it was he could barely manage breathing and walking at the same time. Georgie said down in front of his pile of sheets and started cursing himself for being so shy and that was when someone tapped him on the shoulder turned. The girl was standing behind him. A fitted sheet in her hand. She has georgie how to fold it. Her name was kerry. No one was happy to be. A pen harassed. But carrie was indignant about it. She said she didn't belong there. That was why she'd been fighting with the orderly. There was no way she was going to spend the day slaving over an ironing board if she wasn't getting paid the orderly at said that barbital injection might change her mind but it obviously didn't soon george bush love. He used to find laundry duty tedious. But now it was the only thing. He looked forward to because laundry. Duty meant seeing carry a few weeks.

'The King of Talk': Remembering Larry King
"Larry King has died. He was 87 in a career that spanned 60 years. Larry King interviewed just about everybody. Reporter Jeff Lunden has this appreciation. With his trademark suspenders and his deep baritone voice tinged with a Brooklyn accent. Larry King spoke with Presidents George Bush is our honored guest for the full hour. Next on Larry King Live World leaders Moammar Qaddafi. The leader of the nation of Libya, celebrities, the brilliant Barbra Streisand, authors, scientists, comedians, athletes and on and on and on. I'm always engrossed in the guest. Larry King spoke with Jesse Thorn on the turnaround podcast in 2017. I'm always listening to the answer. I'm always learning, So I guess I'm better every day at learning. The Brooklyn born King actually was an indifferent student, but said he always had an innate curiosity when we would go to dodge it. All my friends wanted autographs at the injury. I never asked for an autograph, but I would walk with the players is they're going to their cars asking questions. Why'd you bunt? Why they do this in the third inning. My curiosity is still insatiable. King began his career is a DJ in Miami, and it's where he got his name is well. When a station manager told him his given surname, Zeiger was too ethnic. He chose King from a liquor ad in a newspaper. By the late 19 seventies, King had an overnight talk show on national radio. Then the 1985 Ted Turner hired him for his new network, CNN. Media commentator and author. Bill Carter, who's a CNN contributor, says the timing was perfect. Picking up something like Larry King may love sense because he had Establish himself kind of as a guy who could get big guests. They could have big names and promoted and became sort of the linchpin of their prime time lineup, and King stayed there for 25 years. Some critics complained that he was too chummy with celebrities and lob softball questions. It is guests. His strategy was I'm never gonna make the guests uncomfortable. And that means not only will they come back, but they'll tell their friends. He won't ask you about that ugly divorce of yours. You know, he'll ask you about your favorite movie, so he didn't challenge people, But he did get information. He was pretty good at that, like when he talked with ex President Richard Nixon. Well, I don't want to dwell in the Watergate thing that's been covered so well. But some personal things when you drive by Those collections of buildings. The hotel the two apartment houses the office building, You feel weird, funny. No, I never give it a thought. Never given a thought. Never given a thought. That's one place where you just don't look back. As far as Watergate is. I know you don't look up at the buildings themselves. Not at all. Not a matter of fact, I've never been in the Watergate. Larry King famously didn't do a lot of preparation before his interviews, the less I know. Better Now, That sounds strange to people. Like If you wrote a book. I wouldn't read the book for interview do because I would then know too much about the book and I'm in the same boat as the audience. They haven't read the book, but King knew the national zeitgeist. He covered the first O. J. Simpson trial every night, says Bill Carter. He basically started the cable monomania move. We're going to just cover this story. That's it In a way. It was perfect for life because it was celebrity oriented. It was in the news, but it was not political. Ultimately, CNN canceled King show because it wasn't political competition from Fox and MSNBC took its toll on the ratings. But King was a survivor. He was married eight times and had Quinn couple bypass surgery after a massive heart attack, and King took his talk show to streaming video and kept on working for NPR news.

That's really angry. Yeah, communicates thousands of words in a single simple picture. It's brilliant, Michael. I think we need transition music.
US 'Safe Harbor' Day Reinforces Biden’s Electoral Victory
"This week marked the so-called safe harbor deadline when states have certified the results for the us presidential election typically by the harvard deadline lection related challenges at the state level or all wrapped up but president trump is continuing to claim without proof that the results in many of the states that voted for joe biden are fraudulent and should be tossed out a lawsuit filed by the state attorney general of texas and supported by the president as well as seventeen republican. State's attorney general and over one hundred. Republican members of the house is asking the supreme court to overturn the results of the election in four states carried by biden. Pennsylvania georgia wisconsin and michigan. That would bring biden below the two hundred seventy electoral college votes. He would need to be the president-elect elect so how can an election certified and contested helping us to make sense of it. All is our friend. Barbara perry the presidential studies director at the university of virginia's miller center she begins by explaining who the electors are and what the electoral college actually does elect doors. One might need them as delegates to this thing called the electoral college. Actually have a t shirt that says property of the athletic department of the electoral college. Which i love that. The politics department at uva gave all of the graduate students at one point. But it's not really a place it's a is it. Is this group of electors. They are chosen typically by a method that is determined by the state legislatures in each and that concept spelled out in the constitution that the legislatures of the states get to choose the manner in which these electoral college delegates or electors will be chosen and that can be through a primary system much as the presidential. Candidates are selected. It can be through a convention of the party in a state but typically these are people who are party leaders. One might call them. Party regulars party activists the only thing that they cannot be is a federal office holder so for example a senator member's house representatives. A member of the cabinet could not participate as an elector but typically it is determined the methodist election by the state legislatures and then really turning it over to the party organizations in each state to choose. This will call it a slate of electors. So then let's walk through what happens. We have the election. We have as we've seen especially this year the states. Sometimes it takes a little longer than some states. Take a little longer than others to certify the results and then we have something known as safe harbor day which happened this week on tuesday december. Eighth can you explain what that is. Yes i in legal terms particularly as it's used in this context of an election. Is that once. This date is set as this is the safe harbor. And once you state certifies your election results you by that date. Then get to be in the safe harbor where your determination and your certification of that election should not be prone to any more of the storm in the seas and the roiling that could come from those who might be questioning the election and its results and so that's where we are now so help us understand this barbara. Because we've passed the safe harbor day we know that every state has certified its electors and yet the texas attorney general is filing a lawsuit or has filed a lawsuit asking the supreme court to block the electors from four states. How can this be possible given that the safe harbor. Data's already passed. I agree with you on asking that question and my answer to that would be what an irony think. Back to two thousand. Think back to the bush. V gore controversy which was much closer because remember that the florida recount that was being requested by al gore Because he was just a few votes behind probably about three to five hundred votes behind. George bush in that popular vote count in florida and whichever person was going to be certified and deemed. The winner of florida was going to exactly end up with two hundred two hundred seventy votes necessary to win the electoral college. So that's how razor send those margins were so understandably al gore was going to keep pressing. But here's the historical irony that republicans were saying on behalf of george bush. Oh safe harbor day is approaching so we really must wrap up and stop this recount in florida and the. Us supreme court accepted that argument by the bush side and said we cannot violate this concept of the safe harbor. Florida must certify its vote and indeed the recount stop. Florida certified their votes which showed that bush had won by sort of three to five hundred votes. That was it and that was it for gore. so by view is isn't an irony that the republican party. This time round led by at this point that commander in chief himself but the attorney general of texas joined by what sixteen seventeen other attorneys general. Republicans in states are now completely violating that concept of. Let's really pay attention to and follow the safe harbor rule right i think many constitutional scholars would also argue that. It's unlikely the supreme court is even going to take this case nonetheless rule on it but the fact is we do know at this point that every single state has certified. It's election correct. That is correct.
"george h w bush" Discussed on WCBM 680 AM
"And so let's do what you can to make the transition. As smooth as possible. I saw an interview with with former President Obama last week on I think was on the one of the shows whether talk shows And they said, You know George Bush and I didn't agree on policy.

US presidential election: A turbulent transfer of power
"Peaceful. Transfer of power is a cornerstone of american democracy. Right now president. Trump is not only refusing to concede this election. He's also denying the incoming biden administration access to key documents funding information. They need to ensure a safe and smooth transition now. The formal transition process is actually a pretty new thing. Congress passed the presidential transition act just over fifty years ago. Em things proceeded from there with relatively little drama or problems until two thousand versus the mission of george. Bush is not up for me to accept or reject the legal process. You know. let's just watch this happen. It'll be over soon. We'll be ready for transition. It wasn't until weeks after that. Bill clinton cabinet meeting december twelve thirty five days after the election that george w bush was officially declared the winner that gave then president elect bush just over a month to plan for and staff his administration course nine months later the september eleventh terrorist attacks happened catching the nation and a relatively new president off guard when the nine eleven commission report came out in two thousand four. It pointed to this truncated transition as a weakness and recommended a more formalized process katherine dunn tempests at senior fellow at the university of virginia's miller center the senior research director at the white house transition project so laws were passed in the two thousands or spin sort of three sets of laws that have been passed to kinda they keep refining it and keep refining it but what they did primarily is that they enable the winning candidates to receive funding to start their transitions after they were formerly so that meant that once biden was the democratic nominee. He was eight. He was provided with all space some funding for salaries and the ability to start planning ahead. Talked to us a little bit. About how worried you are or how worried we should be as americans about this as you pointed out the attacks on nine eleven happened not that long after president bush took office. If something happens january or february of this coming year would the biden administration be potentially a unable to respond because they just simply didn't have the staffing and they didn't have the time to ramp up and be ready. Let me back up. Just a bit to point out that There are basically two important phases of the transition. The i i pointed out was after the nominee has been formally nominated by the party and they received some resources the next big transfer resources comes after the head of the gsa has ascertained the next president united states and they use that verbiage. Esser that verb. I'm not really sure why but And that's the point at which the president the incoming president can start to have access to classified material that can start to be part of the president's daily brief with Tells them all the national security issues. It enables the biden transition team to have access to all of these individuals civil servants and political appointees at the various agencies so that they can interview them. So what's happening now. Is they are preventing the biden from moving to the next phase. And what i would argue is the most important phase at the transition. It's critically important that the biden staff members be able to go to the department of justice francis and to be able to interview. Fbi director the head of the criminal division the head of the national security division to try to get a sense since of. What's the lay of the land where the priorities. What are the crises. That might be boiling over by the time we get here. And that's what they're being denied so. I think there should be a lot of concern about this. The the inability to advance to the next stage of the transition. It's not to say that it's going to necessarily result in some sort of crises that but we want a country that's prepared so it strikes me as were basically just sort of harming ourselves for no apparent reason and were inhibiting our ability to be in the best possible situation. We can be on january twentieth. And there's no reason for that. We have the resources we have the capacity. So why so. Let's talk about the. Why and and the who so. Emily murphy is a name that most of us probably weren't familiar with until now she is a person who is at the head of the. Gsa can you talk a little bit about how her role what her role is. And how much leeway. She has to continue to refuse to release these funds or to allow the biden team to start integrating with the outgoing trump administration. So emily murphy is the administrator of the gsa. It's a political appointment in the gsa. It's office is largely responsible for all the government real estate so they helped provide office space and oversee office space You know in in most situations would never even hear of the essay in this particular case because the legislation housed it in the gsa. She has the capacity to release the funding and the resources to the party. Nominees and then eventually to the president-elect by law she is the one that has to ascertain the election so there will be no funding going out until she does it. So what's tying our hands. I mean she is a by president trump. She must be a republican. Who has some loyalty to this administration and is unwilling to buck the advice. She's getting probably for mark meadows. Probably the chief-of-staff sues weighing on her.
Reasons Everyone Should Visit Houston
"Should someone come to houston. texas acetate. don't really think about houston all about when they hear houston is a space center. Houston actually has i think. It's supposedly had the most restaurants per capita so there's a lot of food here. It has a really good population mix because of his proximity to mexico. You get what's called tex-mex which is a kind of mikla. Mr for mexican in texas food i guess or american footprint is quite good and there's also other large ethnic populations here so you'll find Didn't population here and there is actually some folks from other african dies poorer. That's here as well. There's really lot more to do than people think plus is all the major sports teams are here so there is quite a bit to do that. They just don't think about and all day but think about it's a space center but that's just one thing that you can do houston. I cannot verify the top ten restaurants per capita in the. Us list does not seem to have. Although strangely enough it does hit my hometown of san jose california issue. San francisco is being number one which i believe. 'cause nobody there cooks but guess. What would you recommend that somebody do when they come to houston. I actually have a huge list of things that people can do. I was bored one day and came up with. I think about forty five three things that you can do in houston for different free things. Yes no shortage of things to do in houston itself. Museum district is actually very large. Most people that come to houston they are here for oil because those are the Ahead of his hair they also come down for the medical center and when united was based here it might have been the largest employer at the time but i don't case anymore so there is a slew of museums at least eighteen or sally's eighteen free ones. Anyway we also have a lot of parks like any large city and because there's so much oil. Many in houston is a lot of people giving money to the parks into the parks action. A very well developed than really. Well kept. Well as i told you ahead of time. I'm gonna get you into more specifics. So okay where should we start all right. So can we talk about transportations. Says the airline guy. Alan guy right. He said has to year. Boy says a hobby airport. Which up until a few. I guess last week was dominated by south west but then southwest is now going to have flight sida houston intercontinental airport and in the continent airports named after george bush. Not the son but the father although the bush's actually live here in houston so transportation wise And they are actually connected to the city but by buses. Everybody drives in. Houston if you come the best thing for you to do if you really want to get around the city. I guess efficiently is to rent a car. There is a local bus service that it was like one or two that comes from it takes about him and only cost dollar twenty five cents to get from houston intercontinental downtown houston and then there is the eighty eight. I think it is now that goes from houston hobby into downtown houston and methodology and a quarter. But i would recommend getting a car because it's so easy to city is very large and getting a car is probably the best way to get around and then we're going to start. We can actually start downtown so once you get your car. You're jumping forty five and you head south into into downtown as you're driving into downtown you can see the city if you want. You can stay out by the airports airports Tells around there but if you come into houston you might as well come. Stay in the city center. You can stay downtown. Houston they have all all the major chains they here. There is actually a myriad married which has the pool in the shape of texas. So yeah i haven't gone there yet but it's actually quite cool. I've seen pictures of it and there's also the hilton which is across georgia. Lebron's convention thinkers houston is a big convention city when they have cooled show which these things anymore but when they used to have the show. You could not find a hotel room in houston and the city is about. I think we're up to seven and a half million people in houston. It is the fourth largest city in the union. So i would actually get downtown. i once. you're downtown There is discovery green and discovered green is actually a park. And it's right by the georgia brown Any literally sits between the myra one side and the hilton on the other side and off to the left of that is the minute maid park which is where the baseball team. The houston astros place. Now if one thing about maid park is if you're into trains and says very old city if you go to most of us cities you'll find a union station right right and most of them are still being used as stations while the one in houston is not it is now where when you go to the astros. That is the hall big hall that you normally have for stations. Dave turned that into the entrance to the ballpark.

"Who helps pick him up men and George H. W. Bush. Two of them off on a whole different odyssey. That really, I think, you know, put them in the center of world of that's And George, I'm going to be going back and forth because again that the stories the books are so rich and that that we could go in so many directions, But I want to try toe we these stories together. George Packer, Richard Holbrooke. I used the word complicated that doesn't begin to do justice. To him. But why did you want to write about him and talk about his ambition? What drove him on and and, frankly, the fact what the first quarter of the book is about Vietnam. So he died in December. 2010 hey, was actually stricken in Hillary Clinton's office, the secretary of state's office, which was a fitting finale and a high drama characteristic of him. A few weeks later, his widow offered me his personal papers, and I knew homework a bit. Not very well and I thought I have a chance to explore. A flamboyant, mesmerizing, maddening character whose career covered the half century from Kennedy to Obama from Vietnam to Afghanistan through an intimate look at his diaries and letters and other papers. So I said, yes, without really quite knowing why I said yes. Holbrooke assumes I began to read those letters, and some of them were as you say, Judy. He began his career in South Vietnam, actually in the Mekong Delta, where the war was at its hottest in 1963. And as soon as I began reading his letters from the Mekong Delta to his first wife, I knew I'd made the right choice because he was such a good writer. He was so intelligent, so observant and funny. Um and arrogant and just a guy who could fill a book and maybe more. So. His ambition was, um, an engine, a kind of demonic engine that was there from the very start and then Got him into very high places and led to some triumphs. And also in the end, I think, cost him a great deal, Friendships, relationships and maybe his own heart's desire, which was to rise to the top of his field. He never got there, partly because people found him. To the too difficult and abrasive a person and his ambition. He could never keep it in check Author George Packer, his book Our Man, Richard Holbrooke and the End of the American Century. Demonic engine. What? What a term Susan Peter talk about Jim Baker and how he I mean. He came to Washington. He ran The campaign for against Ronald Reagan for George H. W. Bush. And yet Ronald Reagan shows him to be his White House chief of staff. Any and he was seen is probably the most successful person at that job. Of this of this modern time. How did he do it? Yeah, That's a great record because he didn't really have a background that would necessarily suggests he was going to be successful. He had been a lawyer up until age some any ran into running George Gerald Ford's campaign in 1976 coming in from nowhere in the wreckage after Watergate. There were no Republicans left of his generation at that, because you know the previous Group, and then you know, Invictus and off to jail and Nixon. Also, it opened up Ah world for people like Jim Baker, Dick Cheney, Brent Scowcroft and a whole new generation of people who kind of came to the fore in his case. I think you know, it's an example of you know, a president that is Ronald Reagan, seeing what makes sense for him. He was an outsider coming into Washington, but he wanted to get things done so he didn't add niece. Who is this? Conrad meet the organizational skills to run a White House didn't understand in Washington to bigger and it's remarkably as you sacks of another president would pick The guy who ran nine just one but two campaigns against him. 76 90 80 as his chief of staff, but end up being I think, as you said in a meeting Ah, smart choice on his part. Peter Baker, chief White House correspondent for The New York Times. And Susan. What was that quality in Jim Baker that it got him chosen for that job that made him a successful lazy Was he went on, of course to be Treasury secretary pulled off this big bipartisan Tax plan, which, as we know, you know, we haven't seen anything. Really the likes of it since back during the Reagan years. But what was it about him that that You know, hold it all together. Well, Judy, you know Tim Baker, Right? This is a question. Everybody asks him. He will give you the sort of folksy twang and he'll tell you Well, you know, my family hasn't added. Prior preparation prevents poor performance. But, you know, we all know pretty well that Washington is a city full of ambitious lawyers who do their homework and staff play And, you know, certainly It's true that Jim Bakker was ah, assiduous to the point of obsessive when it came to getting the job done. Man. He was famous for staying in the White House at night in the Reagan White House until he returned every phone call from everywhere and every member of Congress, often after he knew they had already gone home. By the way, this is the pre email pre Internet era. But you know, that's not the secret. Obviously, there are plenty of people who know their brief on are extremely well prepared. Certainly that's one aspect of it, but I think Peter and I found in working on the book. That, you know, in the end for Jim Bakker, Success was really the only option. He's obsessed with winning. And I think the hyper competitiveness is part of what he had in common with George W. Bush. I think that's how they bonded on the tennis courts, and by the way, they're varying stories about how they came to be teamed up a double team, But I think one simple answer is in a picturesque is looking at the other day of Jim Bakker, pointing to the wall before George H. W. Bush Showed up in Houston. Guess you've been the singles champion at the Houston Country Club For the past few years. It was James A. Baker. The third and George W. Bush wanted to be teamed up with a winner. There's no question about that. Tim Baker's father. Exerted. This and his family in general exerted this overweening power over his early years, right, and it's shaped him as a person..

They just want him out because they don't like the guy personally Trump factor the Trump factor. Yes. But again, if the economy is going, well, and the Democrats don't offer up a. Viable alternative of somebody who has a positive message. Besides Trump is bad. That's going to make their lives better than I'm thinking. You know, what that's the whole key right now what I just read you keep seeing job reports like that everything else is just noiseless job. Good. They are. Very good. Definitely February was not good. So we were worried about recession, and so this is positive news. Absolutely. It seems that way and lease somebody weighed in on the jobs numbers. Now more.

"King insurance dot com. welcome back in. It's the Phil Valentine show. Checklists envelope thing. So it appears that everybody that is sitting on the front row of the George H W Bush, you know, that would be the presidents and their wives or former presidents. They all got in their program for the thing. There's an envelope in there. And I it looks like an invitation to something. I mean, there's not like money falling out of it. But some of the conspiracy websites are saying that it's it was all it portends war, they're telling them all there that we're getting ready to go to. Well. Why would you tell them in an envelope that we're getting ready to go to war? And we're having a secret meaning. Of the trilateral commission, the council on foreign relations and the luminosity and remember, shh, sh- don't tell anybody. So they talk about how they all look surprises. I mean, Hillary Hillary opens up her program and the envelope falls out into a lap. And then she picks it up. She looks at it. And then she puts it back in the envelope. And it's probably an invitation to something after the funeral you're invited to some family not or something with with Jeb Yellen. Or I don't know what the deal is family. But I wouldn't I wouldn't read too much into this. I doubt I doubt that the reptilians are contacting folks via envelope at the George H W Bush funeral. So it probably said now when the president arrives don't look his way. Well, here's the top talk is something else to Obama's sitting there and Milania can up and nobody stands up. I would have just instinctively. There's a lady this just walked up. I would have stood up and said, hey, how you shake her hand. How you doing? Well, Bill Clinton kind did. Well, he didn't he just reached over? But then Hillary's go and don't touch that woman and the Hillary's going there. She is again. You can't. No, I can't tell you. She is. So hey, she is so handlery. Let's go to the phones, by the way. Six one five seven three seven nine nine eight six seven three seven WW, tea and Mike. You would be up next, Mike what's up? Today. Do great Mike day. I think if your duck. I think if he waiting a state of emergency thing for the wall that would really give Pelosi away Norway out because he didn't come through me. He went that way. Well, it would. I mean, if he can't get it through congress. He's thinking of it. I don't know. I was talking to hurricane Mark. My brother today. How long does this last and go, well, you know, I didn't think it would go this long. But now the Trump's in it, I mean, it could it could go indefinitely who knows? Yeah. I don't think he's back down. But I don't think he should say emergency either another way. Okay. So you don't like the state of the emergency out. Yes. It'll get the wall built. But it also gives Nancy away out. Interesting. All right. Appreciate it. I yeah. I see we coming from. It's some polling. You're going to have some is didn't have to face reality. Now, here's the deal. We've talked about this reduction force I've not been able to actually get that confirmed. Matter of fact, that was looking at reduction in force people have talked about this at after will sit after thirty days he could do this. Well, it's been more than thirty days. So what's the deal?

Taxes and school. No one taught me how balance a checkbook in school. I really worried that you know, a lot of students that are in high school, for example, when a lot of them can take basic micro macroeconomics class, they know less about how comics actually works then when they previously went in. And that's what worries me at the not the scams, not the not the people that are jumping on stupid things. It's just basic financial literacy, there was a reminds me there was a skit than I really liked that was on Saturday Night Live. I think he was kind of in that late night when they were funny. Yeah. Exactly when they were it was the late nineties early two thousand win will Ferrell was still on us and L they had Chris Parnell and Rachel dredge. And that that that cast and they had a a little bit that was kind of like an infomercial type thing where the husband and wife who was will Ferrell and one of the ladies were sitting at the table, and they're like going over their credit card debt. Right. And so they've got all their bills on the table. And they're scratching their heads. Saint gosh, I just don't know how we're going to dig out of this and Chris Parnell who was like the salesperson. He walks up to the table. And he says are you having trouble managing your debt here. Just by my, you know, my whatever seventeen page book, it's called don't buy stuff. You can't afford. And the whole bit the whole bit is it's really easy. It's actually just one phrase. It's just don't buy stuff you can't afford. And we'll feral says so what you're saying is that if there's something I want to buy an can't pay for it. Should I go ahead and pick it up and Chris Parnell just goes? No. And he says okay same scenario, but I have the money. What about now? He's. Okay. Probably. And then it goes to the woman. Okay. Similar situation, but remove the money. Can I go ahead and get get one today? He says, okay. No. But it's funny, and it makes the crowd laugh, but the point being is that it's a really simple joke, but it hits home for a lot of people, right? Like Absolutely. -solutely hot He. heat full. Like three to four credit cards. Exactly. So the audience is laughing, but they're laughing knowing that statistically like two thirds of that audience have a couple of Mexico. Yeah. Yeah.

Belonged one of the things for me that I never wanted to do was to disappoint them. And I don't it's not because they ever worried that I would disappoint them.

And that was something that I loved about them is that they constantly could be reminded that of their humility such humble beginnings and on purpose. Well, not exactly humble beginnings when they started their life together, but George H W Bush was a risk taker. Right. He becomes a fighter pilot in World War Two. He's shot down over the Pacific. He comes back. He gets married early. He he met Barbara Pierce at Christmas dance when she was sixteen and he was seventeen and he fell madly in love immediately. And so did she and they I together seventy three years. Let's go to Texas what a risk to start his businesses again or risk to run for office. A big risk all of the things along his life that the country asked of him, and he was willing to risk it. And then he decides to run for president the biggest risk of all loses. Ronald Reagan in the primary Ronald Reagan chooses him as his vice president he serves eight years, and then he against all odds really wins the presidency. And then loses the reelection and talk about humbling data also said the former first couple was well aware of changing perceptions with the passage of time. I remember something Marlin fitzwater told me he was the press secretary for Ronald Reagan, and then for George H W Bush as well. And he said that on January twentieth of nineteen ninety three. He never thought that George H W Bush would be thought of fondly in America. Because after you lose you leave the White House with your head hung low, and how wonderful it is that forty one in MRs Barbara Bush have seen that the country. Absolutely adores them was she by default or risk taker as well. Of course. I remember something George W Bush told me when I left the White House, and I wasn't sure what I was going to do. And I joined a PR firm, and it didn't go that. Well, for me, I didn't like being a part of something else. And he said, well, why don't you start your own business? And he said you have to ask yourself. What's the worst thing that could happen? And I think that he learned that from her that you can take risks because your family is going to be here for you. And if you succeed great, and if you don't come home, and we'll figure it out. So yes, I do think she was a risk taker, but she also was a believer in God as well as in her husband and her children all these years later with hindsight is always so much different. Especially for former presidents, George W Bush is often compared to his mother in many ways. Yes. In fact, one of the nicknames that they gave to Barbara Bush was Frank and they cause her Frank around the house because she was so Frank. And forty-three USA tell audiences that he got his daddy's eyes and his mama's mouth. And he said that with complete affection I used to love it when the bushes would come to visit the bushes during the forty three's White House forty-one in MRs Barbara Bush were very aware of the criticism of their son as he was president. And they understood that so well because they had also been the recipient of that type of criticism and forty one and MRs Barbara Bush said nothing hurt them when they were in office. But it hurt them greatly. When their sons were criticized both George W Bush in the White House, and then their son, Jeb when he was governor, and then his failed presidential ambitions. Mrs Bush is quoted as saying cherish your human connections, your relationships with friends and family, but I learned from Dana stories, she didn't just say that she lived by it. There's a story about one time I invited her to a minute mentoring event in Houston, and I asked if she would kick it off and she responded by saying, well, why would you want me? I've never worked a day in my life. And she laughed a little, but the truth is Barbara Bush, never earned a paycheck. Everything that she did was for charity every book that she wrote every foundation that she created the literacy foundation has lasting impacts, and it actually is helping people to read, and so I think about her life as one of such consequence, and she wasn't afraid of it. And she was willing to take those risks a couple of years ago. My husband, and I had a chance to go to Kenny port to visit. And there was a family luncheon that was happening and we were invited to join which was a wonderful privilege for us. And it's great to get to see the Bush family behind closed doors where they're just like every other family making fun of each other and catching up and having a good time, and my husband was helping Barbara Bush with her plate. It was a buffet lunch. And she said, let's stop a minute. And look, and so he stayed with her. And he said he said that she told him we are so incredibly blessed. So she was a term life with gratitude. And at that same minute mentoring event when she did the speech she said earlier today, I call George and I asked him what it was like to work with Dana. And then I call Dana and asked her what it was like to work with George, and what I can tell you my advice to you. Is that loyalty goes both ways? And it will always be that way for me and the bushes for sure. Is there one thing that Barbara Bush said to you that stands out above all else? I think it really is that she recognized that loyalty goes both ways, and she was grateful for people who supported her family for their ambitious goals and their public service. If you think of her life from the twenty s until today in two thousand eighteen what she has seen in what she taught all of us. And she was traditionalist. She was a conservative and so extremely gracious and loved and it's a real privilege to know her. Dana Perino, thank you so much..
