"This is really just kind of the beginning Melissa how WTO news Right now the average price of gasoline in the United States is at four 24 a gallon according to a triple-A survey up dramatically from $3 60 cent just last month $2 90 cent last year at this time So this week president Joe Biden ordered the release of a million barrels of oil per day from the nation's strategic petroleum reserve over a period of 6 months this all in a bid to control gas prices which have actually spiked after the western post sanctions on Russia recently This morning we turned to bob mcnally a consultant and president to rapid an energy group and a former official at the George W. Bush administration He is also author of the book crude volatility The history of the future of boom bust oil prices It is historic and significant We've never seen a release of a 180 million barrels so that's a million barrels a day for 6 months So this is a new record and we'll see if other IEA or international energy agency countries will contribute some more oil to that So we're probably going to have a little bit more So it's big But you know the problem is big The problem is Russia is the world's largest oil exporter And president Putin's invasion of Ukraine has caused a threat and some actual disruption to that amount of oil So even at 1 million barrels a day or one and a half million barrels a day that's obviously smaller than 8 or even 5 or four if only part of Russia's oil were sanctioned So the president is pulling out a big gun but the problem is also quite big And I'm not sure that this release is going to provide permanent relief for beleaguered consumers at the pump It is argued by some that we actually don't have much of a supply problem here in America So what the president is doing here with the strategic reserve was what he's doing designed for what's going on right now Well I think so you know and one thing we've learned is you're right We are basically self sufficient in oil but it's a global market and a supply disruption anywhere means a price spike everywhere including here So you can't insulate yourself away from mayhem around the world when it comes to oil So some of this SPR oil that's being released will be exported But that's the right thing to do We are in a global pool and oil is being threatened in that pool And so we need to add oil to that pool to offset it in order to keep global prices and therefore your local prices in my local prices down That's bob mcnally a consultant at president of rapidan energy group and former official in the George W.

How Is the Obama Administration So Insulated From Media Scrutiny?

"We saw coming out of the Patriot Act, as you said, that first few years of W's and George Bush's administration into the Obama administration. You know, one of the things that I think is so underreported is Obama administration and we're transitioning this into a little bit later, was so, oh, we're going to get along with the world. We're using this. They were one of the heaviest users of drones and I mean, I mean, how do they how does the Obama administration continue to be so insulated from scrutiny from the mainstream media, even after he's been out of office now for so long? It's a mindset. Listen, I remember the summer of 2008 like it was yesterday and the media was cheering on Barack Obama. There was no chance for John McCain to win that election because the media had fallen in love with the idea that the first black president was going to be elected and then he had this great new liberal progressive agenda that would take us away from the policies of George W. Bush and the wars. In fact, Obama sustained those wars continuously, continued to exercise in some cases, extend the powers of the Patriot Act and became a regular consumer of information that had been unmasked and in fact the unmasking requests under Obama went way up. So did the violations of civil liberties. That's one of the most important things in November of 2016 as Barack Obama is about to head out the door. He drops on the fisa court. Oh, we forgot to tell you about 5 years worth of violation. Sorry about that judge. And they drop all of these violations as they're going out of the door so they wouldn't get in trouble. If the Trump administration came to the court, 5 years of just chronic violations of American civil liberties, they had less regard for civil liberties than the Bush administration. The record in the fisa court is now ultimately clear about that.

"And i think that also then lends itself to people. Look at the response of the george w bush administration and sorta cowboy staf like i. Sometimes we'll speak with younger people and they are like sort of bewildered by how we got there and you know like how that all was adopted as this for a lot of people. I think a lot of people they wanted. They were so angry. They wanted someone to blame. They want an easy solution. And i think that was sort of permeating the culture at the time and so i could see how younger people now are like. What the hack y y did we do even the things we did. And it's like. I don't know in context. It's sold as as an and it felt it felt even i remember the night after nine eleven the night of september eleventh a bunch of friends and i just ended up at a bar because we just didn't know what the fuck do and a friend of mine who has written for some of america's most cherished liberal television institutions was like. Oh yeah the western islam like this. This this war is always going to happen. It's going to be one of the other just because everyone was so backed up in the head that we were just. We weren't ourselves. We weren't thinking yourselves. And then there were people like the halliburton's and the dick cheney's the there are people ready to exploit that and to use that to their own ends. And even if you even once the the sort of drunkenness of war rage or are you know sadness wore off. You still didn't feel like you had the right to speak up and be like. Hey maybe we're acting stupid here like at the very least you kind of just shut up and let the war hawks do their thing. Yeah i mean. I also think though thing that maybe like is hard to imagine is if like if we had the level of like social media that we did we did then what you would see on your feed over and over and over again would be those towers falling rate. It would be an insane because the visual is insane and that visual is what we saw. I want i mean it's not like we just thought for a week. We saw that over and over again for like two years they would just be like it would just be a part of news story as it would just be like casually thrown into everything that we saw. That was talking about politics. It was like it was so ubiquitous. And so then every time you saw it. I think you got a little hit of like. Oh fuck. that's crazy. And yeah i guess we have to go to war. Whatever it right so it is like you're saying christian we were out of our minds and also. We were fed the imagery constantly to remind us to be out of our minds..

"You know john. Koh belt uses this expression. I'm gonna use it today. Everybody i talked to today about this. This afghanistan kinda shrug their shoulders. Nobody cares nobody cares now. I just want to say if. I say that i have the numbers because this part is sad. Two thousand four hundred and forty eight. American service members have been killed in afghanistan through april. You know what's a little bit shocking. The next number the number of us contractors killed three thousand eight hundred forty six. We lost more contractors than service. That's mostly this was about. Do you really think we have to spend a trillion dollars in twenty years. Where did that money go. That went to to the The military industrial complex. That's where it it went to all the military companies that supply the the equipment and arms and now the taliban has billions of dollars are weapons and the running around with them posing for the camera because because the afghan army they all surrendered immediately and ran and they left all our stuff behind that we bought them so now. The taliban is fully armed with the stuff we paid for yet. That's happened before and this is the reason. I am so vehemently anti tax. Because that's a trillion dollars a trillion dollars. They spent almost one hundred million just training. And what you eighty three billion you said one hundred million no no no. I'm sorry training the afghan army for twenty years and they folded. And what a day or two. I misspoke billions. Yes billions not millions yet right and look what happened. Could have been one hundred billion yes. It's twenty twenty. I'm assuming it is eighty threes. What the new york. Times citing sources eighty three billion dollar at like high speed. Rail's gonna be one hundred billion right. You take any number of paris. Take any number of government gives an ad twenty percent or fifty percent one hundred percent. You'll be a lot closer. I don't trust anything that any number of the government is you know. What a lot of this This war budget was off the books. They didn't even put it into the budget. It was like in a separate black budget box. That didn't count and borrowed all the money for that. And that's what infuriates me. As they they want to raise more taxes they see. But i guess you can't say that giant leader so that'd be a twelve letter word. That's i know it's just give people money. Look what you did if he must've blown over a trillion on rocky blue a trillion on afghanistan and they got nothing well. Let's go back and talk about where this started. Many years ago when this group in the george w bush administration thought. Let's make over the middle east. What was they called the neo cons thought that they could bring democracy to this part of the world and it would be an incredible change we could actually have allies in a critical part of the world. And that's really gone. Down to white egotistical arrogance commemorating the purple fingers the vo is on its all turns out the afghan army just decided not to fight and they were bribed. I read. oh i've read alabama came in and just sit. Here is one hundred whenever there. I read a great story today from a guy who's been in afghanistan periodically since nineteen eighty ninety s a writer and he wrote on how the real world works and in the real world. These guys constantly make deals going all the way back to when russia owned afghanistan and it was communist or not owned but controlled it and it was communist long as you had..

"Whole team, not just Cabinet, but you know, deputy secretaries and so on. Can doesn't look like a team that then has the balance of deep expertise and mission alignment. Right. It's somebody folks who are laser focused on that. Combined crises of the economy and cove it on climate and our racial justice moment. That's I think the next layer that I would look at right. Our folks getting compliment Terry picks to offset some of where they might need additional inside or expertise. You have specific thoughts on the choice of Sarah, the attorney general of California for that HHS job because that's one that looked a little bit puzzling to me. They're obviously will be legal challenges. Associate ID. With the affordable care act and other areas of health care policy. But you don't usually think that as the number one core job responsibility of the secretary, and it's not clear to me how well he fits with the other responsibilities in that role. Yeah, I think you know, certainly be Sarah's someone who you could imagine in a couple of rolls, right? I think the case for him at HHS involves not just his work defending the Affordable Care act as California attorney general, but also from his career in the House. He has been a pretty out spoken a proponent of expanding Access to health care coverage, which has been a consistent theme of his also wonder if it has something a little bit to do with trying to think about. What are the creative, legal and regulatory tools at HHS might need to use working with the states to help deal with the health care crisis, particularly if we assume that Congress remains deadlocked. And so I think that some of what I was Inferring from that pick you a lot here. I know you worked at HHS in the George W. Bush administration. And I think Sabeel points to something correct, which is that even if there isn't significant new health care legislation There's going to be a lot of regulatory action, a lot of stuff that gets done in the executive branch that sets the terms for health policy. United States There've been a number of regulations that the Trump Administration has put forward, for example, making it easier to sell sort of skimpy or health insurance plans. I assume there will be an effort to reverse some of those regulations in the bite administration. So what would you be? What would you be watching HHS to do good or bad on health care? Yeah, I mean, what's the bill's absolutely right about the role that HHS is gonna play, particularly the regulatory side. You had a number of initiatives that the Trump administration took on via executive action or via the regulatory process. For example, they launched a very large price Transparency initiative for hospitals that will go into effect on January 1st 2021. That is something that Biden administration is either going to have to carry out or figure out some way to reverse repair back. They used executive action in the regulatory process to look at streamlining. Different parts of the health care economy. They were regulations pertaining, for example, to generic drug approval issues that are really not, you know, sort of front and center in the political dialogue, but extremely important, so obviously we're going to be keeping a close eye on on who gets nominated for the number two job, but some of these agencies, I would also further agree that that Deputy Secretary role can be very important. The deputy secretary, which is actually the office, I worked in that HHS. Is actually responsible for for ensuring the regulatory process operates smoothly and seamlessly on is the sort of chief operating officer of the agency, which makes it extremely important. The one deputy that Biden has thrown out so far Guy named Wally A GMO to be the deputy secretary of the Treasury is it is an enormously well qualified, talented pick for that job. Someone who have gotten to know a little bit through A few of the projects I've been involved in the last couple years. So if if Wally's nomination at Treasury is any indication of the kind of talent we're going to see in that number two role in other agencies, I think that's a very, very good thing, And I think it's very important one of the things that we've seen over the last couple years during the Trump administration. Is really the erosion of talent at the deputy secretary at the assistant secretary level. There are few good apples in the bunch, of course, But then there are a number of folks that that beyond making you scratch your head, you sort of think, gosh, this is no one that that probably would have been even been qualified to get an appointment in a prior administration. And here they are, as assistant secretary, So hopefully one of the things we can see is Biden settles in our nominations to these sub cabinet positions that are well qualified, experienced people who know what they're doing, and are able to bring a good amount of Of policy ballast, hopefully to the discussion in Washington. The economic team is one of the more fleshed out areas of this incoming administration. As you both know, we have a deputy secretary for Treasury. We have all three members of the Council of Economic Advisors. We have a head for the National Economic Council for the Office of Management and Budget and Sabeel. You said something that I've been hearing from a lot of progressives, which is that this reflects Shift to the left in terms of economic thinking, compared to prior Democratic administrations, more focused on workers and wage growth and full employment. And I want to push back on that just a little bit because Janet Yellen, who I, who I think is great, and I think that she's going to be a good Treasury secretary. I think she was a good pick. I'm a little confused about the idea of her as the avatar of this shift, because that sort of the most famous policy initiative of Janet Yellen's of the last few years. Was the set of interest rate hikes that she presided over as chair of the Federal Reserve that I think in retrospect, a lot of people think was a mistake. Lyle Brainard, who's a member of the Fed's board, has said explicitly that it was a mistake even though she voted for the rate hikes on that they took some of the gas out of the labor market recovery recovery in 2016 and reflected a kind of thinking that has now been abandoned at the Federal Reserve, or at least shifted where the Fed is saying. We're going to allow lower rates for longer, we're gonna worry less about inflation. Maura about full employment. And I think Janet Yellen, along with all the other policymakers involved with that I buy that she has moved to the left. I just don't I don't really see this is the sort of dis continuity that a lot of people have have have. Have painted it as I think that we've learned things over the last few years have caused a lot of people to change their views on these issues. And and it's sort of weird toe red con this into the Janet Yellen is the champion of that. So why am I wrong? Yeah, I actually agree with much of what you just said Josh and that I think this is more about the evolution the shift over time of.

Don't actually if you think about it does make sense because. Al. Qaeda. I?

The payroll tax that supports about ninety percent of the funding for social security and I, remember thinking boy people are talking about defunding police are we defunding social? Security? What does that mean for? People my age bracket approaching my retirement years in the next few and. Boy I would like to think that all of those contributions I made my weekly biweekly paychecks for all those decades would. Pay Off that was the play. In any way I hope I'm not a sucker and a loser. To borrow a phrase from another one of the president's conversations and. The. Going to find out more about the current state of social security and Social Security Policy from Jim Roosevelt. Who is with the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare I believe he is on the phone with us this morning. Good Morning Sir thank you for joining me. Good morning with you. First, off I understand that your group is. Taking an unusual step board which is to endorse a presidential candidate is that right? That is correct the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare. Has Been in existence for about thirty eight years never endorsed the presidential candidate before we've broken with that precedent this time the National Committee to preserve. Medicare is endorsing Joe Biden and Tamila heritage for president and vice president. And why what what is it about this election? That makes you break your tradition on this? So we feel and I'm vice chair of the Advisory Board of the National Committee de. The feel that an exception had to be made this year. the contrast is just too great during his convention speech Joe Biden called Social Security and Medicare sacred obligations vowed to protect them. He understands that there essential to seniors wellbeing and even more. So during the yet. covert crisis than intact he has a plan for social security. Would expand benefits lifting an additional half a million seniors out of poverty by twenty thirty he understands that more revenue must be brought into social security. because the most of the sixty four million Americans And Hundred and Fifty Thousand Vermont irs were at receiving social security. Absolutely. Yeah. Depend on it. president trump just doesn't. It not only doesn't get. He doesn't even night e even care As you mentioned, he signed an executive order giving employers option to suspend collecting the collecting and painting the social security bike attack. Which is quite fun. As you said, that's what funds social security. benefit side. and he is. He's said he's suspending it until the end of the year, but then he said if he's reelected. He's going to. He's going to completely do away with it The chief actuary of social security have has testified. to Congress. that. Happened, the social security will run out of money in twenty, twenty three. Not, just us up the trust fund but totally run out of money. Yeah. So. We think that president trump is very dangerous for social security. many employers are not taking the option of suspending me a collection of the tax, but federal employees are forced by President Trump's order. to have their collection suspended. that will would mean that they either would have to pay that back from the first of the year all in one all at one time or social security if if trump goes ahead with what he says, so security will. Start running out of money. In the the president has said I think that. He would. Shore up. Social Security's funding that you know it's not gonNA run out of money because we are going to backfill it from the federal. General Fund. And I. my question about that is. Is this the same general fund that's about three trillion dollars in debt right now That that is what he had talked about the same general fund that can't where the where Mitch McConnell and the Republicans in the Senate won't even pass the bill for. Further relief of people affected by covert nineteen. So that's not something we can. We can count on at all. My grandfather. Franklin D Roosevelt. scientists, Kirti into law back in nineteen. Thirty. Five And at the time he said he set it up with the payroll tax. So. No Damn. Politician could mess with it that was raised no allocation. clearly. Not Consider, Donald, trump, none of us I think had. the and that's why we're. Endorsing Joe Biden. You know I it it. It really is. Pretty fundamental it seems to. Ideologies. Their extended America. Today Th there is a streak of real libertarianism and conservative stop looking for government handout kind of an approach from some on the right apparently maybe including this president but this this idea of. Of. Changing social security in a huge way backing the government out of it privatizing. Et CETERA has been under discussion at least since the George W Bush administration is. George W. Bush did really bring to the forefront privatizing. Part of Social Security I lived in the campaign to not privatize it back and George Bush said that he would visit. Every state to campaign for privatizing social security. He visited forty nine of them. Every time he visited state and people started focusing on it. The polling high turned deeply against against privatizing social security. So people understand. So it sounds like you mentioned in your introduction people have been paying their social security tax. Through their whole working life, and that makes us an earned benefit. It's not a handout. Fair, it's an earned benefit. It's a pension that people have earned. and. and turning it into a program funded. Theoretically, and I don't think theoretically. Dubious as I think you are that this would happen. although the general. Fund means that every year when the federal government a budget doesn't budget, it have to wait and see well, is there enough money to pay all the social security benefit. Continuing to use the to have the payroll taxes Is Is An absolute amount that's been in.

"28 K Dawn. Welcome back. It is Vegas Stakes Sharpened Bureau. Glad you could join us on a Thursday as I mentioned a lot to get to coming up later on in the show. We're going to speak to this guy. John. Foreigner. John Farner is Ah was the official with the U. S Department of Commerce with the George W. Bush administration. He is. Has organized this committee 43 alumni for by them supporting job, Ivan, So we'll get to him coming up a little bit later on this show and again, I mentioned this question. It's going to be a funny segment. I promise you that it involves Sarah Sanders, Kim Jong Eun and some little for flirtation. And Donald Trump telling Starr Sanders take one for the team. It's a really funny story, so we'll get to that coming up a little bit later on the show, by the way, little little shocking. I'm a little sad to hear this, by the way. Because I like the rock, and I hope he and his family are doing OK, but he and his entire family I have received the Corona virus on and that's kind of Ah, kind of had to hear that. I like the rock. I've always liked the rock because I think he's a really good dude. So we'll get to all those questions and all that stuff coming up a little bit later on in the program, But I want to start with this. Ah, this Nancy Pelosi. I guess you could call it hair gate. That's what's trending on Twitter and then and the way it goes, It's basically she goes into this hair salon that was closed and you got this guy that's renting out some space in this hair salon. And she goes in there makes an appointment gets her hair done. There were a few moments where she wasn't wearing a mask. And Basically What happened was the video of it surfaces online because the owner Trapped her and I'll explain how she trapped her first. I want to play you a little bit of audio from Nancy Pelosi, but before I play any audio, I just want to say this to start. Because anybody that's not practicing social distancing is wrong. Anybody that's not abiding by the laws is wrong. And I'm the probably one of the few people on radio that has been very consistent on this. I've gone after the BLM protest ways of consistent on it. I'm am I not No, You're way too consistent on Brian. Have I not attacked everybody? The BLM protesters? I've been very fair. You've attacked Trump more than be alone. Protest. Here's the evidence. You've spent a little bit of time attacking beyond. So let me let me respond to you Why I have attacked bottom. I'll let me just respond to what you just said. CDC. Immigration came out a week ago. Let me just respond with only 6% of deaths in the United States. We respond or were attributed to Onley covert 19. Let me have a death in the United States, as the person who has died has been suffering from from an average of 2.6 or more cold morbidity is don't know what that has to do with that. What That means is that what we're doing is for not okay. So we shouldn't be wearing. We know we should. We should be protecting those who are at risk. So we should be wearing everything else should be also, we should be ready to confirm. All right. So I'm not distancing the narrative that you're nothing here, but the consistency that you've had It's all for not okay. Doing it is that we shouldn't be wasting my time. That's good for the country. OK, so you started it, But I've been doing this for a long time. Okay, so we shouldn't be wearing masks. It's bad for the country. Okay, That's your opinion, which I think is absurd. It's fun, but that's I think it's ridiculous. But anyway, uh, if you're one of those people And I know that you're out there and by the way, just let me respond to what you said. I almost forgot. Ah, you said why do you, you know, attack Trump a little bit more with the mass stuff than be Ellen. Because Donald Trump is the president of the United States and leader of the Free World And last I checked anybody in a protest is not the leader of the free world and the things that Donald Trump says in his behavior are looked upon people who look at his leadership and they act upon likes you a lot of old Blasio just for saying that there's no reason it should be no events. Gotta love New York, but there can be protests. Okay, thank you for that. Let me finish my thought, and you just brought up. You know something else and and and and I say it in a broad stroke. He's that Donald Trump is the president of the United States. It's very simple. I attack anybody. You could be an everyday citizen. That's an anti massacre. You could be Nancy Pelosi. You could be BLM protesters. You could be Donald Trump. The reason why I talk about Donald Trump. Just a tad more is because he's the president of the United States, but with that being said The reason why I say this if you're one of those people that had no problem the other day with Donald Trump in the RNC speech with thousands of people watching, not practicing social distancing, not wearing masks if you had no problem with that, and you didn't even utter any type of criticism, But you're the type of person that is talking about Nancy Pelosi right now. And this hair gate. You have zero credibility and I don't want to hear from you. It's very, very simple. But now let's get to the dance. There's literally within that. Now, let's get this night, Nancy Pelosi These, these salons cannot be opened there. There are business owners all over California. That are losing their proverbial Lasses. And this particular would be because they can't be opened. So now you have the secretary or that the speaker of the house was also a representative of the state. Who is exploiting one of these businesses, and she's being very hypocritical about it. It's it's it's It's. It's a classic Marie Antoinette situation and I was what's good. What's good for me is not for now, and I will rule and that's the big issue And there's not the social distancing part of it, Brian. It's the other part of and I will repeat what I just said, and by the way, it is social distance. There's people because there are people On Fox News. Hey, that are attacking Nancy Pelosi and people in right wing radio that are attacking Nancy Pelosi for not wearing a mask. So what you said is not true. And I will also go on that part. That's not the main finishing attack. You gotta let me finish and he totally rightfully so. And the owner of the salon is the one that you should be talking about is well And as I said before, and I will say again. I have no problem with people going after Nancy Pelosi for not practicing social distancing and for taking advantage of a situation. I have no problem with that at all. I have a problem with the people out there that have not said anything about Donald Trump in his speech at the RNC, or the fact that he rarely ever wears a mask and had thousands of people listening, watching him at the RNC speech, not practicing social distancing, not wearing masks. Many of those people have not criticised Trump it all for that yet those summer some of the same people that are going after Nancy Pelosi again you have zero credibility. Now. I would like to get to the audio. This is Nancy Pelosi. Responding to the situations, he says that she was set up. By going to this salon. Have a listen to this Take responsibility for trusting.

B. I. when this occurred with Nicole Wallace caught nine you look at this White House now and it's hard to imagine two FBI agents ending up in the same room how did that happen I sent them something we I'm probably wouldn't have done it maybe gotten away with in a more organized investigation more organized administration in the George W. bush administration for example or the Obama administration and both of those ministrations there was process and so the FBI wanted to send agents into the White House itself interview a senior official you would work through the White House council on the B. discussions and approvals and who would be there and I thought it's early enough let's just send a couple guys over that is the admission the book is above the law from Reagan re you can pre order it now it's by the former acting Attorney General in the studio Matt Whittaker it is the inside story of how the justice department trying to subvert president trump the question I've been asked more than once and I need you to answer the question because you have the capacity to do so Jim komi stroke McCabe warning the people on my on the cover of my book the people that have your book what can they be charged with we have all these kind of fancy good abuse of power the color color of law obstruction of justice they I look these up deal with these old usually lead to small ball prosecutions not a big deal this is so delicious this is trying to undermine the duly elected president so what what legal jeopardy Matt would occur all these people in nalco me stroke makayla so at least two of them coming in McCabe have been looked at previously coming out of the IG investigations the leak investigations all of that and they've they've declined to prosecute we've heard that from general bark and we've heard that from the U. S. strains office in the district of Columbia based on on now what we're hearing and what we know there there may be a new options for prosecution and as I listened to the heritage interview which she does such a great job interviewing general bar she was asking him essentially what you know what are the consequences for for this this prosecution even now dismissed and you know he was very careful but he said a couple things that that we we need to remember that John Doran continues to look at big be criminality of all these individuals that were involved in in in addition not just that the department justice but within the entire US government necklace clapper and it's also the day the declination to bring charges on Comey and others with regards the mishandling of information that does and grated double jeopardy trap so that they could still be charges a grand jury for all of these people yes on what charges well I'm eight this is this is this is the hardest thing in it you know I'm I'm because I'm a lawyer trained in the law and I'm and I'm prosecutor and I'm in I know how careful you should be yeah not healthcare but these are so radically what categories they fall directly I you know I I think you have sort of that category you have potentially eighteen USC I think it's it's zero hundred Warner wanted to miss prism a felony I think you have hello miss prison of a phone this preserve a FedEx one of which that means well prosecutors you know essentially that you knew that others were committing crimes in in and didn't do anything so it's a sort of aiding and abetting theory it could be used depending on the underlying facts are you'll bark Durham and then this Jeff Jensen who's a very under the radar U.

"A part of that George W. bush administration and clearly the prospect of him testifying set the White House on edge the president tweeted very aggressively at a number of nasty tweets about building this week when it appeared as though there was a chance that he might actually be called in to test yeah and Jim are we should say the White House response to this the president's response has been John Bolton is lying essentially did happen yes the president is saying that he never had those conversations with John Bolton also Rudy Giuliani has come out to say that he didn't have those conversations with John Bolton and that John Bolton is a backstabber I think it's what Giuliani's tweets said and eat you know that the White House has made it pretty clear in the president's legal team is made it pretty clear that if Bolton worse subpoena and that they would try to block his testimony that they would claim executive privilege or other forms of privilege that would try to prevent him from from testifying and that it would be tied up in court for a very long time this is one of the arguments that was made to senators Republican senators like you know you don't really want to have this take forever this could take forever and it seems at least many of the in many of the senators were persuaded by this idea of not wanting to get bogged down in and argued that well we we don't need to know what he will say it won't change our decision we've heard enough yeah at C. Davis of the vote on this this is when I was still on the second amendment about subpoenaing John Bolton they're close to being done I think I don't know if you have any sense of whether there any surprises in any of these votes so far any votes going in a strange direction well one thing I would say and I credit to Kelsey so my colleague up on Capitol Hill but she did flag that the way that the resolution is written is a bit inconvenient for the Democrats running for president because there are still well it does suspend the rules of the trial it's still does put them back in a trial on Monday for up to four hours and by the rules of the trial they need to be seated in the Senate not speaking for for those four hours so refer closing argument closing arguments so yes you know the I think it's for Democrats still left in center ring from resident but on the Isle of four they are certainly headed there tonight but they're going to have to come back here before the caucuses maybe they should carpool I get a discount okay the we have the final vote on the second of motion if not the yeas are fifty one the nays are forty nine the motion is agreed to and again that was a motion to democratic leaders recognized killed just listen I send an amendment to the desk to subpoena John R. Bolton provided further that there be one day for a deposition presided over by the Chief Justice and one day for live testimony before the Senate both of which must occur within five days of the adoption of the underlying resolution and I ask that it be read the clerk will report that letter from New York Mister Schumer proposes an amendment number twelve ninety seven senator manat seven or later you Charles Schumer the matter following the resolving clause be considered as read so ordered the majority leader's recognized a motor Tabley amendment as to the Asian as are there is there a sufficient second there is the clerk will call the roll Mister Alexander and we're now back in will call to I'm I'm a little confused on what's happening here well I just I just wanna make a clarity point because yeah the the last vote was fifty one forty nine which is means the two Republicans crossed over I have not obviously seen the exact role call but both Mitt Romney of Utah and Susan Collins of Maine had publicly been on the record saying they would vote to subpoena John Bolton so I think it's a safe presumption that those two Republican that crossed over where those two it is likely on this vote which is similarly involves obtaining John Bolton but would spell out the terms of how you would testify one day clothes store one day on the floor of the Senate this is expected to fail likely along those lines I don't know if Mitt Romney and Susan Collins will vote for this one because it might be too explicit for the terms of John Bolton testimony and they've already gone on record saying they support it but we do expect this to have failed certainly along closely along party lines if not exactly so the taint same two Republican senators voted earlier today to allow witnesses and documents broadly yeah I have also now said we should think John Bolton himself to testify yes okay and Susan Collins is a very independent operator in the Senate going against the grain with the party line is not a new thing for her she was very open from the beginning of this process that she could be a yes on more witnesses and documents Mitt Romney comes from a really unique place in that he is a Republican who has a brand and identity that is completely separate from Donald Trump especially in his home state of Utah where Donald Trump has never really been that popular and Mitt Romney has always been wildly popular so the political calculations that I think a lot of Republicans take into consideration about their constituents in their states and how they feel about trump running is the ability to sort of be an independent operator here and and he's been pretty consistent a very critical this White House and very clear that he thought it was very legitimate to hear testimony from John Bolton Mitt Romney former governor of your often mistaken also credited in that state with saving the Salt Lake City Olympics when it was embroiled in huge corruption scandal so big big hero to many back home Ron Elving your thoughts as you're watching these votes to you you are no stranger to watching late night Senate Senate votes I know and they are often pro forma and they are often in some respect for another without a lot of content although in this particular instance there fraught with content that is implicit in what they're voting on specifically what they're voting on is whether or not these Republicans are willing to say again and again no not only no witnesses but specifically not John Bolton specifically not the man who was in the room specifically not the man who has said he heard all of this and is publishing a book to that effect and a person who let's face it has been about as far out on the right in American politics as you can be and who has taken a lot of grief for it in academia which is where he came from and it's taken a lot of grief for it in general but now is certainly has a whole new set of enemies on what he thought was his side of the street yeah I was struck by comments today made to a reporter I believe in New Jersey by the former chief of staff of the White House former homeland security secretary John Kelly who was asked about this upcoming vote and it hadn't happened at the time about allowing witnesses he said if I was advising the United States Senate I would say if you don't respond to seventy five percent of the American voters and have witnesses it's a job only half done you open yourself up forever as a Senate that shirks its responsibilities timbre Q. thoughts on that I he he must be on some kind of a a speaking tour of some kind because yesterday he was quoted as saying that he believes John Bolton in and out and then that would contradict what the White House is trying to push out so Kelly Kelly is someone who is okay with contradicting the president contradicting the White House you know it's sue was talking about Mitt Romney being sort of a a Brandon and a Republican who's out on his own on this it is truly remarkable how much and today is a very stark reminder of that that the Republican Party has become their apart the party of Donald J. trump you know Mitt Romney was the party's nominee in two thousand twelve he was the standard bearer and now he's a guy on an island who you know during during a break was over chatting with the Democrats rather than the Republicans yeah one important thing to do one important thing to remember here too is there is nothing stopping the house from subpoenaing John Bolton and Nancy house speaker Nancy Pelosi and house intelligence chairman Adam Schiff in different venues were asked this week about the possibility of that neither one of them would directly answer the question which tells me it's on the table and so the idea that the if this proceeding being the end of this conversation is not true that house could especially now that John Bolton has publicly indicated that he was willing to testify in the Senate trial so it's gonna be a bit hard to say you won't respond to a house of you know but you would have a send it one so the public is certainly going to know what John Bolton has to say he has his book coming out I think it's in March or April in the spring but it's also quite likely that he's going to face more congressional oversight and blunt who's a Republican from Missouri made a comment earlier in the week that I've had to think about the time it didn't resonate as much but now it does where he said this may become a thing where it's more a question of oversight than it is about impeachment essentially saying you know Republicans if they wanted to could have a hearing about it or leave it to the committees or Congress has other ways of recourse to have oversight of the executive branch and how they acted here maybe Mike Pompeii needs to come talk to the Senate foreign relations committee and talk about their policies but impeachment was a three course and that is true for the house to the house still has subpoena power they still have oversight power and there is nothing that makes me think that Democrats are going to let the questions raised that the of the president's conduct here go away and ran Lucas I mean maybe you can decode this a little bit of why John Bolton would have refused to apenas from the house before and now say actually come on bring it on I'm happy to talk is there any rhyme or reason to that beyond he had a book to sell I don't know that we have an answer to that yeah I would love to hear John Bolton explain the reason for that and there may be a point when when will it have the opportunity to hear jumbled answer that I think one of the things getting back to what she was talking about about oversight authority and the and the power to bring people in and demand answers from the administration one of the things that the house managers have consistently said it in the course of the presentation during this trial is that in their telling of it their ability to demand information from the executive branch is actually on the line here that the fact that the administration could say from the get go we're not handing over anything we're not gonna let you talk to witnesses if the Senate signed off on this there's nothing to stop the administration from taking that line again we make it to to to see that put an actor see whether that actually is indeed the case of the third amendment has now been voted on and I believe we're about to hear the final vote read by the Chief Justice of the United States John Roberts.

"Being general Michael Flynn. and when you think now what we know now and and what we didn't know what the time about general Flynn it is it is stunning. and if this is how we're going to treat people that put their their lives in harm's way for us we've got a big problem because initially we believed and discovered that yeah they probably. had in fact. veiled on mass and even leaked raw intelligence involving general Flynn that was our belief in the beginning I'm trying to go back and into the recesses of my mind and figure this all out where what started when and where but then we had may cave and call me involved and bragging. how they literally took advantage of chaos. amber James call me said when he testified before Congress that in fact he did something he would never do no I'm sorry this wasn't before Congress this was in an interview on stage and he actually said this is something I wouldn't do to the either the bush or the Obama administration's and yeah I absolutely took advantage of the chaos that took place in the trump White House on day four of the trump presidency yeah I might have found it hard to imagine two FBI agents ending up in the same room how did that happen.

Dana Perino on Developing Her Own Voice

"After spending seven years in the Bush administration rising to press secretary Dana Perino had become comfortable speaking speaking on behalf of others including the forty third president but she transitioned into roles on Fox News after the White House Dana develop her own voice who cared what I thought I could tell you what President Bush thought and why he thought that are how we got to that decision and I was very comfortable in that role on the first episode of Season Season Two of the strategic wrist Dana Talks about how she always remembers to focus on the good news how she deals with social media trolls and how her career in country music is progressing. I'm Andrew Kaufman and this strategic presented by the George Bush Institute what happens when you cross the forty third president late night sketch comedy and compelling conversation. The strategic has a podcast born from the word strategically which was coined by the now and embraced by the George Bush administration station we highlight the Americans feared of leadership and compassion through thought provoking conversations and we're reminded that the most effective leaders are the ones who laughed. We're joined for today's episode by Dana Perino former White House press secretary and now Fox News Co host the five host of the daily briefing Dana Perino podcast co host of I'll tell you what she's a bestselling author so you're pretty busy. Thank you for taking the the time to do this. This honored to be here. I I love coming here to the Bush Center. It's whenever you step in that front door. It's like wow this place is beautiful. Thank you for saying that and doing such great work thank Q. and our co host is Hannah Avni your friend and VP of external affairs. She's back again Hannah. Thank you for doing it again. Thank you for having me again Andrew so Dana you so you recently you're now we're recording artist as well. Gaza May dierks dirks a Dirks Bentley superfan right. I yeah superfan Fan. Also I get to call him a friend now to happens if you stock long enough so. Do you think he's going to invite you to be on a song the backup side when you have a number one song in the world. It's kind of like you. I don't need to really do it again. I don't think but it's pretty funny when I worked at the White House. Well let me go way back when I I was in college and I thought I wanted to go into media back then if you wanted to get into TV you had to start in radio and I didn't want to have to do my radio experience after right graduated so I got a job part time job as a country music. Dj working overnight and Pueblo Colorado and I ah I didn't really I had grown up in the West but I had really listen to country music when I was a teenager I didn't really do that so I was completely out of it I I I introduced the first night a song by Tracy Lawrence and I said and here she is with their new Song Tracy Lawrence and then of course raises Lawrence's a man uh-huh tricky. I we have to do so fast forward and during the years at the White House. I don't think I listen to any music back at all. I didn't even have an IPOD when we left. That was the technology at the time I had nothing I listen to. NPR or whatever else was happening rush limbaugh or something so Kakitumba on the news and so when I left the White House or when we all left the White House I got an ipod I guess it was and I used to travel back and forth to to New York a lot and I just started downloading country music and Dirk Bentley Song Come. A little closer was out at the time China so that's how we became a fan. Would you like to sing a little bit of but I do have the worst voice but the other thing you're talking about is I don't I'm blessed with having lots of ideas and not a lot of time to execute however so in two thousand sixteen the five went on a bus trip to go conventions. RNC Indian say and at one point in the back of the bus Greg Gut failed and I were sitting there and he was making me laugh so hard because he was just making up nonsense country songs about the five about Fox News about everything and he just had me giggling so much and I said we should should go to Nashville and record a song about the five and record it with a real recording artists and then release it for charity so three years later it came true. We have a wonderful executive producer of the five called Megan Albano. She figured it out we teamed up John Rich from big and rich who is a wonderful person big fan of forty three's as well and we went to Nashville and in one take he's saying the song that we sang the backup part. It's called Oh shut up about politics and it's not about shutting any particular person up. It was just about how politics has entered into everything sports music music theater technology. Everything's just too much and so we have a song called shut up about politics. We released it and within two hours it was number one on the country charts and then and that whole weekend it was number one in the world bigger than Lady Gaga Justin Bieber it was astounding. It's amazing it was amazing and all the proceeds go to folds of honor so we're pretty proud of it. Ninety nine cents you can download it on full. Honor does great work. We've done incredible work. We're familiar with there were pretty well and they're just such great such a great organization. That was pretty fun fun. I have a question for you off of that. Though I mean you're right politics is in absolutely everything you cannot get away from it and we talk about that a lot too. I mean even when you're going through Instagram instagram stories. It's just permeates every bit of it. It's in your life obviously multiple times a day. How do you get away from politics and focus on the thing? I feel a little a lot better than I did even from a few years ago because I've really embodied this idea that politics is what I do. It is not who I am and I have carved off my weekends and my evenings when I'm not working but but I don't go to dinner to talk about politics with people unless I agree with them now. That's GonNa sound like Oh that's not very fair and balanced view but I argue all day long and so in my personal life I pretty much. Don't I have a rule that I wrote about in the in the Jasper book which is no politics at the dog park. You're that's a safe place for me and if and even people that WanNa talk to me about politics at the Dog Park Mike Sorry I don't talk politics at the dog park. I have a policy and then laugh about it and they move on and I also carry a lot less about social media than I did. In Two thousand sixteen. I was really attacked by the Russians. Even though I didn't know as Russians at the time I remember actually coming here to the Bush Center right before the two thousand sixteen election. I can't remember what I was doing and AH chance to see President Bush and he's how you doing and I told him I had the worst professional summer of my life you know being attack and I was really kind of in the fetal position under my desk and even like my husband would say how can I help you. There's there's nothing you can do and it gave me a big appreciation for what parents are going through when their children are consumed assumed with their phone because you don't know what's being said and it's so demoralizing I was a grown woman. I've been the White House press secretary. How could this affect me so much and and I remember President Bush saying? Why didn't you call me like a really imagine if I had called President Bush and said Sir people are being really mean to me on twitter he would have said get off twitter on it solved this one's easy and actually it is easy so once you step away from from it or somebody gave me a tip to only have mentioned from people that you follow and Eric Schmidt of Google actually pulled me aside at one point in two thousand seventeen as I was explaining what it was like to be one of the people that was targeted by these Russian boots but I didn't know they were rushing at the time I just said it's overwhelming and he pulled me aside Dana? These are not real people and you explain to me how the whole system worked in Saint Petersburg and I don't know that just gave me an ability to say it doesn't matter. It just doesn't matter no so I it's weird to say that as much as politics permeating everything for me. It's probably less a part of my life than in the previous elections that I've covered for Fox. Was it similar to how you regrouped. After you left the White House taking a breath stepping away from it no not really I mean I remember the day that we'd left Andrews Air Force Base and Peter and I left to go on the trip to Africa. I leaned my head back against is the seat and I said nothing I do for the rest of my life will ever be that important or that hard and it's really true when I make a comment now. I'm not gotTA START A war. I also have a great appreciation for what public servants go through and I want to support deport them. No matter what party they're from if you're willing to put your self out there and run for office and try to do the right thing I try to be supportive. Okay talk to us about mercyships touch. You talked about a little bit when you left the West so interesting about mercy ships. There's actually a Bush connection there too okay so obviously President Bush and Mrs Bush were amazing leaders. When it came to Africa I I got to go to Africa with them? In February of two thousand eight and in typical forty-three fashion we did five countries in seven days. I got my first migraine. I couldn't even go to the Kigali event because I had to stay on the plane and two liters of fluid into my arm and so I didn't get to go to the and and I've been sad about not making it to Rwanda ever since given the statistics about pep far so many times at the podium that I thought I understood Africa and then I was just totally blown away when I went there and I came back and I said Peter we need to go for six months after the White House and he said how about six weeks so we did six weeks compromise and yeah so we did a pet farsight that's on in Fishhook South Africa and Peter and I just had this confusing time and that did help us reset our priorities and our hearts and to reconnect as a couple as well because we're so blessed here in America and you can get caught up in what about me. What am I gonNa do to the White House and just being able to have a bigger world view? After I left was great great fast forward mercy ships asked me through my speakers bureau if I would come to Dallas and moderate a conversation between the president and Mrs Bush in front of their dinner group so I said well sure that sounds great so peter and I were coming down here now prior to that I had join the one campaigns women advisory board and I had gone to several countries with them. I had also been on the Broadcasting Board of Governors under President Obama and I'd gone to Africa on behalf of of that organization as well trying to increase the amount of content of for women in particular and Africa because we found that men will definitely listen to the radio for news in sports but women will listen if it's about health and their kids so anyway it's just little bit of an effort to do that so at the dinner right before the Q. One eight with the president and Mrs Bush. I'm sitting there and somebody says well. Why did you get interested in Africa so I'm telling him than soul story that I'm telling you and then I I said just a few months ago I got to go to Sierra Leone and I went to this place called the Aberdeen Clinic and it was started by Scottish heiress us and it's so amazing they were doing fistula surgeries there and the day I was there? They were teaching the women there how to count to ten and the lady next to me said Oh she's not a Scottish heiress. Her name is Ann Gloag and she's sitting right behind you. This is a self made businesswoman in Scotland who was a burn unit nurse for twenty years but then she and her brothers started a bussing service in the UK when Margaret Thatcher deregulated the transportation sector and they became very successful and as the company expanded she took Africa and and when she got there she said this will never do so she started doing all of this philanthropy there and that's how I ended up talking to her and I said to Peter we have to go see mercy mercy ships for ourselves so that's how we got involved and it's a surgical hospital ship they do the West Coast of Africa that night they were kicking off a capital campaign for a brand new ship because they I usually retrofit and old ship and
