"Prosecute the law and let's make sure that we abide by it. And in this case, school boards need to do that immediately. Now, Governor, one of the things your election did is it clarified things in Virginia because Virginia's Democrats nominated hard left people in the state Senate seats. They rejected their center left people. They went way to the left. Is that mattering in the elections that are forthcoming? Yeah, I think in a huge way, because that's exactly what happened. We saw Democrats who had been constructive with Republicans in our split General Assembly, rejected by the liberal left and replaced with these progressive candidates. And as we've seen across the Commonwealth over the last now 20 months, Virginians are coming together, not just Republicans, but Virginians, and rejecting the progressive left ideology so that Virginia can in fact reestablish itself as a leader. And this is what's happening. And we're seeing it translate into policies that Virginians appreciate and support. And I think we're going to see it at the polls this fall. We have great candidates. We ran the table in our nominating process on great candidates for Republicans. We're executing the game plan. We're making sure people understand that we're going to continue the very successful policies that we initiated over the last 19 months. And we're watching Virginia soar as a result. And that's why I am so excited about putting our record on the ballot with great candidates this fall. And I'll go back. We just need to get everyone to vote. Go to secureyourvotevirginia.com, make a plan to vote early. We're going to finish the hard work that we started in 2021 and demonstrate that a state that was truly blue, completely controlled by Democrats in a short 24 months with commonsense conservative policies can in fact fundamentally turn around, bring people together around those policies and march forward in an accelerated pace. Secureyourvotevirginia.com. Thank you, Governor Youngkin. Keep coming back and good luck to the commonwealth electing a Republican majority in the Senate. I'll be down to vote early as one of the fetching Mr. Hewitt soon. Secureyourvotevirginia.com. Thank you, Governor Youngkin. Stay tuned. I'll be right back. Have you guys heard that President Biden is bragging about Bidenomics recently? I mean, talk about being out of touch. Just look at the rampant inflation, making everything from gas to groceries cost more. Americans are paying $10,000 more every year for the same standard of living. Costs are higher, wages are lower, and Americans are poorer. That's the real Bidenomics. I'm thankful for Americans for Prosperity, the biggest, strongest fiscal conservative organization in the country that's out there leading the charge against the president's reckless economic policies. You can always count on Americans for Prosperity to take on this White House false claims with proven, principled solutions. That's why AFP has launched the new campaign called Prosperity is Possible, advocating for solutions we know will work, like ending the reckless spending driving inflation, unleashing energy abundance, and empowering the American workforce. Here's the good news. You don't sit on the sideline and watch Bidenomics ruin America. You'll be part of a movement for freedom and opportunity that fights and wins.

McCarthy worked with Democrats to keep the government operating until mid November. Let's get more now from WTOP's Mitchell Miller today on the Hill. I do intend to file a motion to vacate against Speaker McCarthy this week. Congressman Gaetz speaking on CNN State of the Union arguing that McCarthy has failed to keep promises made to GOP hardliners when he was elected speaker earlier this year after an exhaustive series of votes. He lied to House conservatives. He had appropriators marking to a different number altogether. Gaetz acknowledges his effort faces hurdles and may fall short. Democrats may come to the aid of the speaker, though remains it an open question what they'll do. As for McCarthy, he said he's not worried about what comes next.

California Governor Gavin Newsom is expected to appoint Emily's List President LaFonza Butler to the seat of the late California Senator Dianne Feinstein, according to two sources familiar with the matter. A formal announcement could come as soon as Monday. Butler, who's African -American, was the first woman of color to lead Emily's List when she joined the organization in 2021.

This is according to a new University of Chicago and Associated Press, NORC Center for Public Affairs poll. A little less than half of respondents say liberals are free to express their views on college campuses, while 20 % say the same goes for conservatives. Free speech debates royal have campuses in recent years with conflicts arising over conservative guest speakers. Earlier this year, students at Virginia's George Mason University petitioned against Republican Governor Glenn Youngkin at the Spring Commencement Ceremonies. This poll of nearly 1100 adults has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 % points. Some of Europe's top diplomats are in Kiev today showing support for Ukraine's fight against Russia. The foreign ministers from the EU's 27 member countries have converged on the Ukrainian capital for an unannounced informal meeting that officials say would review the bloc's support for Ukraine and discuss President Volodymyr Zelensky's proposed peace formula.

"It's flexible. Are you back over the line again? No. Eight, six, four, six, four, four, nineteen hundred. That's eight, six, four, six, four, four, nineteen. And I'm joined now by Governor Youngkin. Good morning, Governor. Welcome. It's good to talk to you. Great to be with you. Thanks for having me. Our prayers were lifting up today for everybody in Florida. Yeah, I know. You know, Governor DeSantis knows what he's doing as you've dealt with disaster. So I'm confident about that. But I like the Salvation Army when it comes to making donations. Hey, Governor, did you do the deal with the legislature on the budget yet? Yeah, we're really close. I haven't seen the final details on all elements, but big picture. We've got a billion dollars of tax relief that's on top of four billion last year. That brings us to five billion dollars of tax relief in 19 months. And we're continuing to see a really strong economy support or at least job growth in Virginia support that, which is great. We're going to continue to invest in education and in law enforcement and behavioral health. I'm particularly encouraged by the bipartisan effort to come together on trying to bridge this learning loss gap that was driven by schools being closed for far too long. And Virginia kids are still suffering. And so we've got real work to do there. I just haven't seen the final details yet too. I'm looking forward to seeing those here shortly and bringing everybody together next week to take a vote. Could you do more if you had a Republican State Senate as well as a Republican Assembly? Yeah, you bet. And that's why these elections this fall are so important. I think they're the biggest elections in America because we can show that a state that was completely controlled by Democrats just 24 months ago has changed direction completely and chosen statewide Republican leaders and a House and a Senate. So while we've got our House today, our Senate and House are both up here this fall, I want to hold the House and flip the Senate. And then we can really accelerate and these petty fights over tax cuts and delays and bringing relief to Virginians, which could have been done back in January and February and now we're here in August and September is unfair. It's unfair for Virginians to have to wait. We could get to work and do much more. And I think Virginians deserve that. And I'm looking forward to the elections this fall to demonstrate that. Now, I want to talk about secure your vote. But first, I was just telling people Tennessee has no income tax. Virginia's at 5.5%. That's a significant disadvantage. Now, you're advantaged over Maryland. So the people who live in the Beltway are going to want to live in Virginia and DC. But if you're down in Bristol and you can live on either side of the street, I think it's the most illustrative city in America because you're going to move across the street into Tennessee and not pay any income tax. Can you lower the income tax if you get the majority? Well, that would be absolutely part of our overall agenda, which is to use reductions in income tax in order to fuel higher employment and therefore higher receipts for the government. And then we can lower taxes again. It is a reinforcing virtuous cycle. And that's what, of course, states that have been lowering taxes are demonstrated. And that's one of the primary reasons I stepped up to run, which was to not only stand up for parents and law enforcement, but to bring down the cost of living in Virginia so we can compete. You know, one of the most amazing facts is that while we brought $5 billion of tax relief to Virginians, we still are at a tax disadvantage relative to states. But we're seeing people finally stop moving away from Virginia faster than they're moving here from the other 49 states. And all their early data suggests that for the first time in nine years, we will see net inflow into the Commonwealth. This is hugely important because you can't shrink your way to success. And I think Republican-run states are demonstrating this over and over and over again. It's the most basic decision someone's going to make is, where am I going to live? Where am I going to bet my future? And I want them to bet it on Virginia. And that's why we are working to bring down the cost of living, reduce tax burden, streamline regulations, create jobs, stand up for parents and schools, and reestablish expectations of excellence, and back the blue so that our neighborhoods are safe. It's a very straightforward, commonsense conservative formula. It works. That's why I want people to go. If you go to secureyourvote.com, I hope I've got that right, Governor. I am a Virginian. I normally vote early in person, because then I get to meet the first lady of Virginia who works the polls. She was out there when I voted for you. It was very surprising. But secureyourvote.com, tell us about this, Governor. Yeah. So, Hugh, it's secureyourvotevirginia.com, so don't forget the Virginia. And it is an incredibly important effort to create a pathway for all Virginians to come vote early. I mean, I'm tired of Republicans standing on the sidelines and missing. And so we have to get turnout. But on top of that, we need to make it easy. And so we have 45 days of early voting. You can make a plan to vote early. You can secure an absentee ballot. I'm tired of going into elections down thousands of votes on election day. And so we're going to get folks out. We've had a great effort so far. Lots of people have signed up to vote early. And I encourage everyone to go to secureyourvotevirginia.com, make a plan to vote early, and let's win this fall in these most important elections. Now, is it Virginia spelled out the whole way, or is it VA, Governor? Spelled out the whole way. Okay, I will go check that. Now, will you tell us about the model policies? And something you said to Eric Erikson stuck with me, which is that if people, if school districts do not adopt these, they are open to personal liability. And I love that point because it drives home that you got some outliers in a various number of counties up there that will not do the right thing, which is empower parents. What are the model rules and what kind of protection does it provide to school boards and administrators? Well, the model policies first start with ensuring every child and every parent's privacy and dignity and respect. And they're founded on the basic principle that children belong to parents, not to the state. And therefore, every major decision in a child's life needs to be made by a parent with that child, not by a bureaucrat, not by a politician. Doesn't mean that they're not trusted people around the table, but a parent has the head seat at the table. On top of that, let's be clear, boys should, biological boys should play sports with biological boys, not with girls. Yesterday, the White House said that this was a complicated issue. This is a common sense issue. And the progressive left has consistently gotten this wrong. Biological boys should play sports with biological boys, not with girls. And so our model policies have been issued. The law is very clear that local jurisdictions have to adopt policies consistent with the model policies. Our attorney general, Jason Miaras, came out last week and made it very clear that they do not have a choice. And now they are really exposing themselves to substantial liability, both as a jurisdiction and personally. This is the law. Let's get on with it and stop trying to act like we can choose which laws we can abide by and which ones we can't. This is at the fundamental heart of why progressive prosecutors are at the heart of why law enforcement has no faith in them anymore.

"Yeah. Well, you said you're reading an Eisenhower biography. There's also instructive examples from the post Sputnik push on science and recruiting talent that Eisenhower made in nineteen fifty seven, nineteen fifty eight. By the way, what what Eisenhower book are you reading? Gene Smith. And it's one of our war and peace. Yes. Yeah. And I learned I didn't know anything about Fox Connor, General Fox Connor or his three rules for war. Do you know his three rules for war? Do the Marines teach this sort of stuff? I don't remember. OK, I want to play. I know. I like that. He was a wise man. I mentor and a lot of marshals. One of the forgotten heroes. Yeah. And George, a guy who won World War Two at one removed.

Watch anytime on any screen at snc.tv and local now channel 525. I talked with Ro Khanna yesterday, your colleague, about a lot of things, but I did not cover your Washington Post article because I wasn't aware of it at the time I talked to Ro Khanna. Do the Democrats agree with you in the Washington Post article that we ought not to be funding with American dollars Chinese aircraft carriers? Some do. I mean, I think everyone can agree upon at least that aspect of it, that American dollars should not be funding the Chinese Communist Party's military buildup. Make no mistake, they're embarked on the largest sustained peacetime military buildup since World War II, potentially ever, depending on how you defined it. We shouldn't be investing our money in Chinese aircraft carriers, fighter jets, artillery shells, advanced nuclear technology, but that's what's happening. We launched a bipartisan investigation into BlackRock and MSCI. My ranking member, Raja Krishnamoorthi, has expressed a ton of concern about American dollars funding Chinese military buildup. In many cases, this money is going to companies that have already been flagged on various government blacklists for posing national security risks. What's crazy, Hugh, is that it's not illegal, but it's suicidal. We're subsidizing our own destruction. We're allowing pension funds, university endowments to invest in Chinese companies that are building things designed to kill Americans in a future conflict. No matter where you draw the line for decoupling, let's say you just want transparency measures, as some Republicans do. You want a broader set of restrictions on American money going into China, as I do. I think what's inarguable is that money shouldn't be funding military companies and technology companies like AI companies in China that are perfecting their genocidal surveillance state. Now, the Financial Times also ran a story this morning that Goldman Sachs has been taking Chinese money, laundering it in effect. It's not criminal, but they're hiding the origin of the money, and they're buying U.S. companies. It's the opposite of what BlackRock is doing, which is sending American money to Chinese companies. They're taking Chinese money and putting it into American companies. Do you want to stop that flow as well? Well, particularly if these are national security-related companies, I saw that some of the investments were in the cyber space and in the supply chain space. It all depends on what type of control comes with the investment, but potentially, that could give them access to information or effective control over companies. That would be bad for American national security. I think it's definitely worth looking into. The bottom line is, Congress, we need to step up and legislate a fix to some of this stuff, whether it's on outbound capital flows, which the Biden administration just released an executive order that's filled with loopholes. It's a step in the right direction, but it doesn't go far enough. We need to legislate that when it comes to Chinese money being invested in American companies. We tried to fix CFIUS to get at some of that issue, but clearly, it's not up to the task. We need to legislate a fix to that. Here's the other thing, Hugh, that I find interesting when it comes to American investments in China. In addition to being morally reprehensible, the Chinese funds have been terrible investments. Over the last five years, the S &P 500 has soared to about 78%. Meanwhile, things like BlackRock's FXI ETF, which invests in these Chinese large-cap companies, it's down 30% in that same period, even as Chinese GDP supposedly doubled. That doesn't make sense. A lot of the funds we looked at in our investigation similarly underperformed drastically. Where did the money go? Is it going into corrupt Communist Party coffers? I don't know. My only point is that beyond the national security concerns, just as an investment proposition, China looks bad. There are systemic risks to a continued investment in China that range from having your assets seized in the event they try and take over Taiwan, or just the inherent risk involved in things like variable interest entities, for which there are no shareholder protections. Part of what we're trying to do on the committee in a bipartisan fashion is to engage Wall Street in a dialogue about this. It just seems insane to me that we would continue to send our money to China, where it's being used for nefarious purposes. Well, you know, Chairman, the investment bankers make their bonuses based upon the amount of money they move through. So they have every Adam Smith-driven incentive to just blow you off. Does your panel have subpoena power, by the way? We do. I would grab Larry Fink. I would grab Jamie Dimon. Separate hearings. And I would put them down and say, let's talk about this because it's a national crisis. Let me ask you, by the way, I think if I had a bell, I would have rung it when you said Sisyphus. I believe that violates the acronym rule, does it not? Oh, you got me, Hugh. Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States. I apologize. $10 to Food for the Poor, because that's it. It's $10 tip jar for Food for the Poor. When you use an acronym. I want to talk to you about increased applying unilaterally. I did because you're a repeat offender. Like, you know, that on the sentencing guidelines, people who do the same thing over and over again, they get fined more. Princeton people are particularly prone to this. And then when you pick up a Ph.D. from Georgetown, you really become. And then you go to Marine. Did you ever go to the command general staff college or the war college or anything like that? No, I got out as a captain before I had to do all that before my brain was corrupted. Well, they have many acronyms there. I'm listening to a bio of Eisenhower and I can't keep up. Let me ask you something, Chairman. Ro Khanna was on and we were talking about artificial intelligence. And he said they're sitting down with the speaker about what to do. I have no preconceived opinions, but I do think they might want to just add the Select Committee on Engagement with the Chinese Communist Party, and artificial intelligence regulation, because you've got a smart group of people. It's working. Would you be opposed to that if the speaker and the minority leader wanted to expand the jurisdiction of the committee to look at what we do about A.I.? Not at all. And we've actually, in our early investigation, had numerous conversations about A.I. and I would expect those to be part of future policy reports. We release, I would note Ro Khanna is my ranking member on the innovation subcommittee on armed services. And we see eye on a lot of things related to military innovation going forward and have a very good working relationship. And he's willing and I think him going on your show is a testament to this. One thing I really respect about Ro is he's willing to mix it up. Obviously, he's very progressive. We disagree on a lot of issues. I'm right. He's wrong. But I respect his intellect and his willingness to mix it up. Three quick ideas here on A.I. for small steps we can take in this Congress as we consider sort of the broader long-term implications. Well, related to what we were just talking about, American venture capitalists, American money in general shouldn't be allowed to invest in Chinese A.I. companies like Baidu. It just makes absolutely no sense. Again, we're subsidizing our own destruction. Two, when it comes to autonomous vehicle technology, which is going to be one of the most widespread deployments of A.I. in a way that really affects the American people over the next 10 years, right now of the 10-ish companies that are allowed to test in America, at least three I believe are Chinese, but our companies are not allowed to test in China or expand really at all in China. And as a matter of reciprocity, that's wrong. We shouldn't allow Chinese A.V. companies here in America. And then finally, the ethical guidelines that the Pentagon has for the use of A.I. are a decent start. They're pretty good. I actually think we could build off those, expand those across the federal government with the goal of not suppressing innovation on A.I. or slowing down our efforts in this area, but also ensuring there are guardrails so that we don't have uncontrolled A.I. that does things that Americans are concerned about. And then you start to build out the concentric circle so we're on the same page with our allies. Start with our closest allies, the Brits and the Aussies, and then expand from there, and particularly focus on countries that have a unique technological capability in A.I. If we do that, if we get sort of the overall ethical framework right, I actually think we can turbocharge innovation in this space and make sure that we win the A.I. race and the CCP does not win the A.I. race. Well, it is a national security issue, but I've got three suggestions for you and your colleagues. First of all, a stand down order to every regulatory agency out there, the FTC and everybody else. They have no idea what they're doing. They just don't. A.I. is new. It's not meant for old regulatory structures like the Interstate Commerce Commission trying to regulate airplanes. Doesn't work. Number two, you've got to change the pay scale for technologists. Now, they used to have a special pay scale out at China Lake for the rocket scientists that we needed at China Lake and other advanced weaponry systems. We need a technologist pay scale that is just way better than we've got. We're going to lose every technologist that DARPA has. And then number three, and this is what I want to ask you about, we need visibility. I mean, walk in rights to every room in Silicon Valley and every A.I. company in the United States. By walk in rights, I mean, if a guy from DARPA shows up and they knock on the door at Metta and he says, show me to your A.I. lab, they don't get to lock the door. These are like nuclear science. We can't let this stuff be developed in private. Do you agree with me? I agree with that. I guess the flip side of that, though, Hugh, is enough research security such that, you know, an MSS operative, a Ministry of State Security think KGB in China couldn't just walk in to the same facility or United Front operative. And honestly, your reference to China Lake, I think, is a great instructive example here, because when it comes to the things we put in our weapons systems, we have a very old suite of things called energetics, which make our weapons go and go boom. We develop more advanced energetics at China Lake. It's called CL20. It stands for China Lake 20. The Chinese stole that technology. That's what they put in their weapons systems. And that's why their their rockets go farther than us and have greater destructive impact. So that's a lesson in how not to do things. And we remain too risk averse to use things like CL20, even though it's now old technology. It was developed in the 80s. So a lot of examples that we can use from there in order to apply to the A.I. competition today. I'm going to geek out. The Office of Personnel Management, AKA OPM, so I don't get fined. OPM had a separate schedule for scientists at China Lake that was policed by the deputy director I replaced, the deputy director at OPM. He was a scientist who had worked there. And he said, you know, no one's going to work for us unless we pay them. It was like double the highest number. Rowe said yesterday we got to pay him like we pay our doctors. No, no, no. We're not going to. This is the most lucrative field in the world. You got to give him a piece of the intellectual property. I mean, you really have to come to grips with the fact that technologists make the dollars. And I don't know that the American people really understand the difference between what the private sector pays a level one technologist and what the government will. We're going to lose everybody.

What's crazy, Hugh, is that it's not illegal, but it's suicidal. We're subsidizing our own destruction. We're allowing pension funds, university endowments to invest in Chinese companies that are building things designed to kill Americans in a future conflict. No matter where you draw the line for decoupling, let's say you just want transparency measures, as some Republicans do. You want a broader set of restrictions on American money going into China, as I do. I think what's inarguable is that money shouldn't be funding military companies and technology companies like AI companies in China that are perfecting their genocidal surveillance state. Now, the Financial Times also ran a story this morning that Goldman Sachs has been taking Chinese money, laundering it in effect. It's not criminal, but they're hiding the origin of the money, and they're buying U .S. companies. It's the opposite of what BlackRock is doing, which is sending American money to Chinese companies. They're taking Chinese money and putting it into American companies. Do you want to stop that flow as well? Well, particularly if these are national security -related companies, I saw that some of the investments were in the cyber space and in the supply chain space. It all depends on what type of control comes with the investment, but potentially, that could give them access to information or effective control over companies. That would be bad for American national security. I think it's definitely worth looking into. The bottom line is, Congress, we need to step up and legislate a fix to some of this stuff, whether it's on outbound capital flows, which the Biden administration just released an executive order that's filled with loopholes. It's a step in the right direction, but it doesn't go far enough. We need to legislate that when it comes to Chinese money being invested in American companies. We tried to fix CFIUS to get at some of that issue, but clearly, it's not up to the task. We need to legislate a fix to that. Here's the other thing, Hugh, that I find interesting when it comes to American investments in China. In addition to being morally reprehensible, the Chinese funds have been terrible investments. Over the last five years, the S &P 500 has soared to about 78%. Meanwhile, things like BlackRock's FXI ETF, which invests in these Chinese large -cap companies, it's down 30 % in that same period, even as Chinese GDP supposedly doubled. That doesn't make sense. A lot of the funds we looked at in our investigation similarly underperformed drastically. Where did the money go? Is it going into corrupt Communist Party coffers? I don't know. My only point is that beyond the national security concerns, just as an investment proposition, China looks bad. There are systemic risks to a continued investment in China that range from having your assets seized in the event they try and take over Taiwan, or just the inherent risk involved in things like variable interest entities, for which there are no shareholder protections. Part of what we're trying to do on the committee in a bipartisan fashion is to engage Wall Street in a dialogue about this. It just seems insane to me that we would continue to send our money to China, where it's being used for nefarious purposes. Well, you know, Chairman, the investment bankers make their bonuses based upon the amount of money they move through. So they have every Adam Smith -driven incentive to just blow you off. Does your panel have subpoena power, by the way? We do. I would grab Larry Fink. I would grab Jamie Dimon. Separate hearings. And I would put them down and say, let's talk about this because it's a national crisis. Let me ask you, by the way, I think if I had a bell, I would have rung it when you said Sisyphus. I believe that violates the acronym rule, does it not? Oh, you got me, Hugh. Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States. I apologize. $10 to Food for the Poor, because that's it. It's $10 tip jar for Food for the Poor. When you use an acronym. I want to talk to you about increased applying unilaterally. I did because you're a repeat offender. Like, you know, that on the sentencing guidelines, people who do the same thing over and over again, they get fined more. Princeton people are particularly prone to this. And then when you pick up a Ph .D. from Georgetown, you really become. And then you go to Marine. Did you ever go to the command general staff college or the war college or anything like that? No, I got out as a captain before I had to do all that before my brain was corrupted. Well, they have many acronyms there. I'm listening to a bio of Eisenhower and I can't keep up. Let me ask you something, Chairman. Ro Khanna was on and we were talking about artificial intelligence. And he said they're sitting down with the speaker about what to do. I have no preconceived opinions, but I do think they might want to just add the Select Committee on Engagement with the Chinese Communist Party, and artificial intelligence regulation, because you've got a smart group of people. It's working. Would you be opposed to that if the speaker and the minority leader wanted to expand the jurisdiction of the committee to look at what we do about A .I.? Not at all. And we've actually, in our early investigation, had numerous conversations about A .I. and I would expect those to be part of future policy reports. We release, I would note Ro Khanna is my ranking member on the innovation subcommittee on armed services. And we see eye on a lot of things related to military innovation going forward and have a very good working relationship. And he's willing and I think him going on your show is a testament to this. One thing I really respect about Ro is he's willing to mix it up. Obviously, he's very progressive. We disagree on a lot of issues. I'm right. He's wrong. But I respect his intellect and his willingness to mix it up. Three quick ideas here on A .I. for small steps we can take in this Congress as we consider sort of the broader long -term implications. Well, related to what we were just talking about, American venture capitalists, American money in general shouldn't be allowed to invest in Chinese A .I. companies like Baidu. It just makes absolutely no sense. Again, we're subsidizing our own destruction. Two, when it comes to autonomous vehicle technology, which is going to be one of the most widespread deployments of A .I. in a way that really affects the American people over the next 10 years, right now of the 10 -ish companies that are allowed to test in America, at least three I believe are Chinese, but our companies are not allowed to test in China or expand really at all in China. And as a matter of reciprocity, that's wrong. We shouldn't allow Chinese A .V. companies here in America. And then finally, the ethical guidelines that the Pentagon has for the use of A .I. are a decent start. They're pretty good. I actually think we could build off those, expand those across the federal government with the goal of not innovation suppressing on A .I. or slowing down our efforts in this area, but also ensuring there are guardrails so that we don't have uncontrolled A .I. that does things that Americans are concerned about. And then you start to build out the concentric circle so we're on the same page with our allies. Start with our closest allies, the Brits and the Aussies, and then expand from there, and particularly focus on countries that have a unique technological capability in A .I. If we do that, if we get sort of the overall ethical framework right, I actually think we can turbocharge innovation in this space and make sure that we win the A .I. race and the CCP does not win the A .I. race. Well, it is a national security issue, but I've got three suggestions for you and your colleagues. First of all, a stand down order to every regulatory agency out there, the FTC and everybody else. They have no idea what they're doing. They just don't. A .I. is new. It's not meant for old regulatory structures like the Interstate Commerce Commission trying to regulate airplanes. Doesn't work. Number two, you've got to change the pay scale for technologists. Now, they used to have a special pay scale out at China Lake for the rocket scientists that we needed at China Lake and other advanced weaponry systems. We need a technologist pay scale that is just way better than we've got. We're going to lose every technologist that DARPA has. And then number three, and this is what I want to ask you about, we need visibility. I mean, walk in rights to every room in Silicon Valley and every A .I. company in the United States. By walk in rights, I mean, if a guy from DARPA shows up and they knock on the door at Metta and he says, show me to your A .I. lab, they don't get to lock the door. These are like nuclear science. We can't let this stuff be developed in private. Do you agree with me? I agree with that. I guess the flip side of that, though, Hugh, is enough research security such that, you know, an MSS operative, a Ministry of State Security think KGB in China couldn't just walk in to the same facility or United Front operative. And honestly, your reference to China Lake, I think, is a great instructive example here, because when it comes to the things we put in our weapons systems, we have a very old suite of things called energetics, which make our weapons go and go boom. We develop more advanced energetics at China Lake. It's called CL20. It stands for China Lake 20. The Chinese stole that technology. That's what they put in their weapons systems. And that's why their their rockets go farther than us and have greater destructive impact. So that's a lesson in how not to do things. And we remain too risk averse to use things like CL20, even though it's now old technology. It was developed in the 80s. So a lot of examples that we can use from there in order to apply to the A .I. competition today. I'm going to geek out. The Office of Personnel Management, AKA OPM, so I don't get fined. OPM had a separate schedule for scientists at China Lake that was policed by the deputy director I replaced, the deputy director at OPM. He was a scientist who had worked there. And he said, you know, no one's going to work for us unless we pay them. It was like double the highest number. Rowe said yesterday we got to pay him like we pay our doctors. No, no, no. We're not going to. This is the most lucrative field in the world. You got to give him a piece of the intellectual property. I mean, you really have to come to grips with the fact that technologists make the dollars. And I don't know that the American people really understand the difference between what the private sector pays a level one technologist and what the government will. We're going to lose everybody.

A highlight from The Effort To Imprison Trump Is Election Interference

"This is your source for breaking news and what to make of it all. This is The Mike Gallagher Show. The sanctimonious super PAC always backed out, should focus more on Florida property and auto insurance instead of spending money on a campaign that's going absolutely nowhere. He's crashing. I do think that Donald Trump is stronger than he was politically in 2016. We may have a criminal family sitting in the White House. Now from the relief factor .com studios, here's Mike Gallagher. Holy cow. What a weekend with breaking news. What would we do without each other? What would I do without you? What would I do without being able to give out a phone number and have a bunch of normal Americans call this show and weigh in on all of the issues that are, are coming our way? And, uh, there's a lot, where, where do you want to begin? Uh, Trump continues to dominate the Republican primary field and in a head to head match up against Biden would beat him pretty easily, according to the brand new Harvard Harris poll that came out Friday. A lot of things happened on Friday. How about the judge issuing a ruling that Trump's trial, um, on, uh, what, what charges are these? Is this when he ripped the mattress tags off or are these unpaid parking tickets or he groped somebody in 1967? I can't remember. There's some chart. Oh, is this the January 6th? He led an insurrection. When he told people to go peacefully protest, I think it might be on that charge, May of 2024, how's that going to be like, how's that going to work when we're in the thick of the presidential campaign and he's got to defend himself in this goofy trial? Trump's attorneys were asking the judge at least please hold off until after the election. Let the American, this is all about election interference. We all know it. You know it. I know it. They know it, but that's the gig, right? That's the game. That's the, uh, that's the scheme. Listen to one of the more radical voices over at MSNBC, Ali Velshi, and what he said about every new indictment that is coming Trump's way. Polling over the last several months indicates that with each new indictment, Trump's popularity grows among his extremist Republican base. Considering all these factors prosecuting this particular former president becomes an entirely different ball game. However, it is a ball game that it is entirely necessary to play. Excusing the behavior of a defiant and habitual law breaker with fascist fascist ambitions would raise serious questions about the integrity of our democratic system, and it could undermine the very bedrock of our democratic principles. Trump's popularity rises among his extremist Republican base. Must be a lot of extremists in America with these numbers. I get, of course, we're all extremists, right? We're deplorables and we're extremists. That's all they got to try to marginalize millions and millions of Americans, arguably most Americans. In MSNBC world, most America is extremist and that's why they're swimming uphill. That's why they're swimming upstream. Back to this judge for a moment, Mark Levin on Fox News over the weekend, the great one, had an impassioned reaction, very passionate reaction to the judge determining that this trial has to take place months before the election. The whole purpose of what's going on here is to interfere with the election, to protect Biden from scrutiny, criminal investigation, to protect him, to get him reelected. That's what the Democrat Party wants. That's why they trashed Robert Kennedy Jr. That's what they want. And at the same time, on the second path, to destroy who they believe would be the nominee, or at least potentially Donald Trump. They have the DA in Manhattan working on it, the DA in Atlanta working on it, the attorney general in New York working on it. They had the two grand juries in Washington, D .C. They're looking at January 6th. Pile it on, pile it on, pile it on. All we need is one out of hundreds of charges. All we need is one, one to stick in front of some Democrat jury. And Judge Cannon, in Florida, you let the country down. This trial should have been moved till after the election. You just gave your imprimatur and the imprimatur of the federal judiciary to the interference in this election. He's right. He's completely right. Can anyone challenge what he just said? If so, call me. I'll put you to the top of the line. 1 -800 -655 -MIKE. It's all about election interference. It's all about going around the American people. The question will linger. The question is, will enough of the American people recognize it? That's all this is. They just got to find one thing to stick. You know, if you can just go to jail for a little bit. This is how goofy. The Washington Examiner has a big front page article today about how this special counsel, this Smith character, is pulling out all these obscure laws to try to stop Trump, to try to crush Trump, to try to convict Trump. He's pulling out all kinds of laws out of obscurity, mundane laws, things that are going to go around the American people. We should get to decide. Listen, Trump could lose. I don't even know that he'll get the nomination. Maybe not. Maybe Ron DeSantis will surpass him or Vivek Ramaswamy will come out of nowhere or Glenn Youngkin will decide to throw his hat in the ring in November. And all of a sudden he resonates with the American people. Or in a head to head matchup, maybe Trump loses to Biden. If Trump is the nominee and Biden decides to run again, and I still I sincerely doubt it, but if he does, maybe Trump loses to Biden. But we should get to decide that. That shouldn't be decided by some federal judge or some deranged prosecutor who is hell bent on interfering with an election. We I mean, it's Biden who's interfering. This is Biden's Justice Department. And the American people should get to make this decision and they're going to try to prevent that from happening. And it's sickening and it's a sorrowful chapter in American history. And again, the question becomes, will enough Americans figure it out? 1 -800 -655 -MIKE, welcome aboard. It's Monday, July the 24th. Wow. The month, the year is just racing past. Hard to believe we're knocking on the door of August, isn't it? We're in the ReliefFactor .com studios.

"Right. I want to ask you one last question sort of off topic But the mayor of Miami Francisco Suarez who is also running for the Republican nomination He was at Francis, excuse me, he was asked about The Uyghur issue in China, and he said he didn't know what Uyghurs were I'm paraphrasing a little bit. Do you think that that is a Something that should disqualify him from running It's one of the most it's one of the grossest violations of human rights anywhere in the world We've had to tussle as you know, Martha with Disney and one of the things we pointed out Is that they were attacking Florida over parents rights and education Meanwhile, they're filmed filming movies right there where the Uyghurs are being prosecuted They never said a word And so I think that that's one of the best examples of how the Chinese Communist Party fundamentally violates human rights Do you think he can recover from that from that issue? As a candidate I'm running my race. I'm gonna beat Biden. We're gonna get all this done I'll let these other guys handle themselves That is by the way a fine answer the five with led by Dana Perino and Greg and Jesse and the gang the judge and Jessica spent eight minutes talking about mayor Suarez and the Uyghurs and I'll get to that in segment three later on in the program But I said at the time immediately after Suarez faceplant that the mayor's gaffe would have the good Effect of drawing attention to the Uyghurs and it has had that good effect We thank the mayor but still please stop blaming me. I pronounced Uyghurs correctly. You didn't know it sounded that's different I pronounced it correctly. Stay tuned America. It's the Hugh Hewitt show Welcome back America. I'm Hugh Hewitt After 33 years of doing this. I've got kind of thick skin. I really don't care people throw shade on me It's sort of like a habit over at the pod for America guys They were doing it the other day Ben Rhodes thinks he's living inside of my head. No Ben the Mennonick of MSNBC I have nothing but undiluted Undiluted level of respect for you the same level respect for you. I've always had Ben. Don't worry about that I did offer him a three -hour interview. He did decline to do it. He didn't care how many books he sold He didn't want it's not on my people throw shade on me that happens all the time I don't like when they suggest I mispronounce something because I have pronunciation problems as Archbishop chap you who's listening right now You know, if everyone were named like Urban Meyer, I could say their names. It doesn't have to be like John Smith But you know Uyghurs, I pronounced it, correct When I grow up, I want to work for a woke company like super woke when I grow up when I grow up I want to be hired based on what I look like rather than my skills I want to be judged by my political beliefs I want to get promoted based on my chromosomes when I grow up I want to be offended by my co -workers and walk around the office on eggshells and have my words policed by HR words like Grandfather peanut gallery long time no see no can do when I grow up I want to be obsessed with emotional safety and do workplace sensitivity training all day long when I grow up I want to climb the corporate ladder just by following the crowd. I want to be a conformist. I want to weaponize my pronouns What are pronouns? It's time to grow up and get back to work introducing the number one woke free job board in America red balloon dot work It is only actually one way to pronounce it. There are many ways of spelling it and Mayor Suarez embarrassed by his obvious having no idea what or who the Uyghurs were and at one point calling them weebles Backtrack again on Guy Benson show yesterday, but came up on the five last night, and I couldn't believe this Generalissimo caught this I didn't actually see this.

"Just gave me more audio than I could ever use Because he first of all, well, let's listen to him the president on the White House lawn yesterday cut number one More people are focused on the fact that Joe Biden's got CPAP marks. Look I think that's a bid for the CPAP vote There are a lot of CPAP users out there I am NOT one of them, but someday I might be when I'm 80 a long time away, but President Biden it's much more concerning. He's confusing Ukraine with Iraq and he does it a lot Then he yells at a reporter as he's leaving cut number two No No, There No it's it's just grumpy old man, it's it's Gran Torino the president went to Chicago Of course, that's very dangerous territory for him Chicago. And here he butchers the teleprompter cut number three under the trickle -down economic theory theory three -quarters of US industries grew more Consecrated I'm assuming You get the idea then he goes on to talk about how he and she get along They got three Pinocchio's on this statement from the Washington Post cut number four. I've long said I mean this I was on the Tibetan Plateau with Xi Jinping Traveled 17 ,000 miles of him I've spoken with him more than any other state because it started when I was vice president President who was the president and he was the vice and we knew he was gonna be successful It was inappropriate for Barack to spend that time But I spent a lot of time I met alone with him just he and I and a simultaneous interpreter 68 times 68 hours 68 times more than 68 hours. All right, we do not know what our lines are doing. Maybe it could be 6 .8 minutes We just don't know what the president he doesn't know with a president You know, one of the things Nikki Haley said yesterday a vote for Joe Biden is a vote for Kamala Harris for president And I think she's right. There's no way he makes it through another six years cut number five. He'll retire I don't think he's gonna die He's got first -rate medical care and he doesn't seem to be dying But I do think he's infirm and he's getting worse cut number five on this is welcome senator justice to Washington DC Goodbye senator Manchin and goodbye senator Sherrod Brown cut number five We've already had over 490 billion dollars in private investment commitment 490 billion From US companies and companies around the world coming to United States of America We're doing our global partners Americans investments in clean energy technology Could reduce carbon emissions continue to lower the cost of wind you talked about the wind farm They're talking about, you know, it's already cheaper wind and solar already significantly cheaper than coal and oil You're not gonna see anybody building a new coal -fired plant in America Not just because I'd like to pass the law to say that it's too expensive It is not we will get carbon capture perfected and the people of West Virginia Hate Democrats for a reason and Joe Manchin is not running for re -election in my view And by the way, Sherrod Brown's gonna have the same problem They've destroyed the mining and coal economies by declaring an enemy because that's something they can do not something that should be done Cut number seven. No, let's just do is Joe Biden praising himself cut number six Guess what?.

"We will learn about our history all of it. Well done governor I'm still waiting for my appointment as seer dar of the Shenandoah to come through but other than that you're doing great Keep it up. Have a great 4th of July governor Welcome back America United States senator Jim talent. It used to be in the United States energy still senator Jim talent is with the bipartisan Policy Center. Good morning senator. How are you? Doing well you thank you. Have a great 4th of July in advance senator these 380 ,000 acres of land owned by the Chinese Communist Party or companies that answered them to them Do you think the United States and the state sought to condemn that land and take it back? Yeah, I'd like to see him do it you and you know I thought Mike Gallagher mentioned something the other day that people don't normally in this context our people can't buy land in China This this is so classic you it's there's a complete lack of reciprocity in our economic relationship Now the major reason is of course national security concerns So we ought to start with the land that is closest to sensitive Installations and we need to find a way to get that land back and we need to stop selling it to them I also am a little bit concerned when they buy a lot in key agricultural reasons of regions Some of the states are taking action But again, we need a coordinated federal response with some actual vigor behind it and energy behind it Which we've not seen from the by administration that senator. I also want to talk to you about the attempt at a coup in Russia This morning's headlines are full of Putin's crackdown against the hardliners who supported the Wagner group What do you think happened there? And what does it tell you about Putin's position inside the Kremlin? The Sum it up. I think Prigozhin was losing his internal struggle with the Ministry of Defense And I think largely because when when Wagner finished when Wagner finished capturing bakmout they were moved back to the rear echelon no longer necessary on the front lines and Putin finally allowed the Ministry of Defense to say look the Wagner fighters have to sign a contract with the MOD Ministry of Defense I've said it a number of times so I can use the acronym now You still get a $5 you still get a $5 fine in the fund org Okay. Well, I mean anyway, I can say Ministry of Defense is quick enough So Prigozhin was losing out and he's an entrepreneurial guy And so I think he started this it's more of a mutiny with with two like implications if you will He thought he'd get a number of sympathetic generals and security states People to join him but the one thing the the Federal Security Service the FSB the spy agency of Russia did right Was they got a bunch of the key people in front of the beige wall and got him to say To give videos telling Prigozhin to stop. So I think he saw yeah he saw he wasn't gonna win and so he but he had the leverage to get a deal because as you've mentioned he got two -thirds of the way to Moscow Family and friends in front of the wall and the bullet in the back of the head is an old Stalin deal Has Putin gone full Stalin or did he go full Stalin long ago, and we just refused to believe it. I Don't think he has the internal capabilities to go full Stalin I think what he's doing is balancing competing powerful interests That's what he was doing with Wagner and the Ministry of Defense and in addition the ultra nationalist bloggers Who support the war but have also been critical of the Ministry of Defense he needs their support So he's balancing all these competing interests. That's his temperament Anyway, and I think he began to move against Wagner and Prigozhin and so they reacted I did I agree with those who say this is a sign of weakness of the Russian state Last question senator and take.

Ability is measured Well, she it is something that we are we are investigating but to be clear, you know, we we have to testing regiments that are applied in Virginia the standards of learning and of course the the national scorecard the nape tests and Of course, what we have seen is that Virginia during the previous eight eight years of Democratic leadership watered down the standards that was that were defining proficiency and as a result the SOL scores and learning scores went up and yet the National Report Card scores went down and That's that's the honesty gap that we are closing in Virginia by Re -establishing high standards of proficiency excellence and we're gonna stretch our students This is critical and then finally we are tackling this entire notion that we have to celebrate Excellence this past year in Fairfax County There was a you know a clear effort to not notify students when they had achieved Accolades on the national merit tests and We went we went added our Attorney General's in the middle of an investigation This is just a systemic a systemic effort to try to undermine excellence. And so alternative testing approaches Clear transparency on what the tests that we are applying mean and trying to set standards that in fact stretch our students You know, we've got control of our State Board of Education With with appointees that I've been able to make and we are writing the ship here but this is this is an overall recognition that there has been a Effort not a minute. This has not been a mistake. This has been purposeful to water down expectations around the nation on testing requirements so that the underperformance of schools and the effort to teach children Politics as opposed to the critical areas of math and science and reading has truly undermined America's future competitiveness Let me close governor by talking with you about a question that ambassador Haley got in a New Hampshire town hall yesterday moderated by Morgan Ortega is from Polaris national security And she said and solicited applause Which is always something to notice if you're in the audience That we have to stop hating American history and we have to teach the greatness now in Virginia Of course, there's a lot of history both revolutionary and Civil War and we know the flaws of our founders Even George Washington may be the greatest man ever Lincoln probably greater But they say they started and they saved our country but Jefferson and George Mason and everyone many of them enslaved people Thomas James Madison enslaved people we know that but we have to stop hating on our country What do you think of the ambassador's answer and do you adopt the same kind of approach? Well, I applaud I applaud that answer and in fact we we are we have just overhauled our history standards in Virginia and it was one of our first initiatives around curricula and standards where we first reintroduced Learning all about our Constitution our Bill of Rights and our Declaration of Independence. It's all about understanding the founding of our nation we Expanded the the history that we cover the good and the bad And we can't know where we're going unless we know where we have come from But the reality is that this was a nation that was founded by men there has not been one perfect person on this planet other than in my faith our Lord and therefore there have been there have been material material Violations of all things we hold dear and yet we are a nation in pursuit of excellence and we have to get on that boat And that's why in Virginia we overhauled our standards. I am so pleased with where we landed We will have the best in the nation..

"Well, first of all, let me begin that I am I am always hesitant to jump out in front of our Supreme Court I believe we have an extraordinary slate of conservative justices that are doing doing an extremely good job and I believe that they will rule that You know in the best interest of America and that that is going to be to recognize that college admissions need to be about Excellence and as student as colleges build classes, they have to take all kinds of things into consideration But you know one of the things that I have felt so strongly about is we've seen we've seen the pursuit of equity in fact Undermine excellence and we've seen it in our high schools we've seen it in in colleges and this is just a moment for us to all step back and recognize that we have to raise the bar and We can raise by the way, we can raise the ceiling and the floor at the same time It's what we're doing in our public schools in Virginia We in fact are going to put back high standards for proficiency in our public public schools in Virginia but we're also working to support those areas of Virginia that have perennially underperformed and Making sure that we're bringing more resources there This is about opportunity and we should provide opportunity paths for all Virginians and all Americans But to mandate that we're gonna lower Expectations is really not keeping with America And so again, it's about opportunity and creating opportunity paths not mandating equity Virginia has a lot a lot of great universities. Of course the star in the universe is the University of Virginia I was talking to a New Hampshire woman yesterday who had five sons They went to five different colleges One of them is a cavalier University of Virginia person and I thought to myself that's great Americans ought to be able to go wherever they can get in But they ought to be able to get in without someone putting their thumb on the scale What has Virginia done to make sure that we do not have thumbs on scales keeping Asian Americans? Especially out of our very best universities because we have quote too many of them close quote, which is an evil idea But it's gotten into the water Yeah, well you let me just first begin with I love all of our public universities in Virginia and and there are all stars And one of the I think great attributes of the Commonwealth is just the Extraordinary college and university system that we have that includes the University of Virginia And I think one of the real real benefits of being in Virginia is access to all of these great universities You know, we've been fighting we've been fighting this battle on excellence in admissions Yes all the way through to our our governor schools And you know Hugh that we've been that there's been a battle over the Thomas Jefferson School for Science and Technology And admissions policies there which mimic this exact same discussion And so we passed we passed the law last year that they that basically said it's going to be a merit -based Admissions policy that is not it is not going to racially discriminate and on top of that then we we add it Into our middle school curriculum support for students who would aspire to go to our governor schools And again, I think so often the the left liberal progressives try to turn this into an or moment And we we need to turn it into an and we should have merit -based admissions and students who aspire for these schools should have excellent Public education and support systems to get them prepared. This is not a moment where again.

"I'm doing great you good morning. I sure hope we get you back home soon Well, you know I go back and forth there there last week governor I want to start with a question from way out of left field I know you're not running for president, but I'm gonna ask it Anyway, are you familiar with the wiggers and what China has done? Yeah, Hugh. It's it is a horrific violation of everything. We believe about human dignity and This is this is why when we see a president who is Truly acquiescing to every every China whim we have to stand up and say what are we doing? We know the Chinese are trying to dominate the world and they are repressing their own population in in the process of it I mean this this is what China is. It's a Chinese Communist Party ruling with an iron fist They're using every single arrow in their quiver economic militarily surveillance and repression of their own population in order to achieve their goals and We've got to get tough. We got to understand that it is at America's expense But we also have to recognize what they're doing to their own population. This is this is a horrific Window into what the Chinese Communist Party is all about Governor I went down to hear Nikki Haley in New Hampshire yesterday And she spent a lot of time talking about the wiggers and about Xi Jinping and the Chinese Communist Party Do you think if the Republican is going to run for president should they just make China front and center? Well, I think that there is there is a there are a number of key topics here that I think are going to define America's future one is how we combat China aggression and We have got to combat it. Let's just be clear there are economic challenges that we have to rise to where we have particular sectors like semiconductors and like the supply chains in the EVs and and Everything else that we have allowed China to dominate I mean that the critical minerals world is one that we keep that President Biden keeps driving us deeper and deeper in Into submission and to China to Chinese dominance We have got to get on this but on top of that our our allies need to know that we're gonna stand strong I had the great opportunity to visit Taiwan Japan and Korea I had a chance to meet with both political leaders and business leaders They need to know that America is going to be there and this is such an important part of the future of America's role which is for freedom and democracy and The exact opposite I'm gonna come to culture issues in a second, but I want to stay in China one more question Two days ago Robert O 'Brien the former National Security Advisor advisor ambassador O 'Brien sent me a story that the Chinese Communist Party or their companies that work for them have bought 380 ,000 acres of American land some of that no doubt in, Virginia What do you think about that and ought states in the federal government to condemn that land and get it back because I don't think The Chinese communists ought to own land in the United States Well here we we passed a bill I championed it and we passed it in the Virginia General Assembly that that forbids the Chinese Communist Party from acquiring farmland in Virginia and you know that we have some of the most sensitive National assets that we must protect and we got out in front of this And I think if you're gonna close the barn door after the horse has already gotten out We're lost and so we first need to prohibit this across the nation and second of all we need to go back and look at These purchases and figure out where they are and if they need to be unwound they should be unwound I mean listen, we've got the Pentagon. We've got Quantico the largest naval base in the world Wallops Island where we're launching rockets plus a lot of the national security infrastructure in Virginia We are not going to allow the Chinese Communist Party to buy land adjacent to it where they can set up surveillance Surveillance networks like they've done in Cuba This this is absolutely common sense and we got to get moving and again There's no sense trying to close the barn door after the horse is out Let's get it shut before the horses run it run away from us. You know governor I know about Quantico and I know about the largest based on in Norfolk, Virginia Beach I don't know about the other ones, but I don't need to know I just need you to know and to make sure that the Chinese are not buying the land around it Governor in a few hours We may learn the fate of Harvard's admissions and through that the fate of every admission including the University of Virginia It is unconstitutional for a state institution to use race in the admission of people There have been a minor exception the door is going to close on that today What do you think the court ought to do at the Harvard case today if you're familiar with it?.

"Few and quit pushing it in the faces of everybody else that don't want to hear about it My last question governor has to do with what the Supreme Court might hand down as their first decision today The Harvard case and the Harvard case involves my alma mater using race to keep Asian Americans of whom you are one Out of Harvard and it's illegal under the 1964 Civil Rights Act and I hope they get nailed today What do you think of that policy that approach? Soft bigotry is what I call it. But what do you think about the Harvard admissions approach which is copied across the country? Look we lived it my son when he was doing his college Applications was scared to put that he was Indian American on the application Because he was worried that that was going to prevent him from getting into any schools That is what Asian kids are having to deal with And so look, I think we have to there was a time and place where affirmative action made sense What I think right now is let's go back to the to living based on merit I was born and raised in a small rural town of 2 ,500 people the daughter of Indian immigrants We were the only Indian family in that town. I I from that small town Became the first female minority governor in history. I went on to become UN ambassador if That's an amazing testament to what you can do in this country. So instead of telling our kids. Oh You know, you don't get treated well So we're gonna give you a step up because of what you look like or how you know who you were born from Instead of doing that say look you could be anything you want to be if you work hard But you've got to put in the work and if you put in the work America will reward you That's the message we need to say last observation the fetching was here I went with me yesterday to the event and she was amazed by your poison your determination to get through all of the questions that You could how many such events do you have to do in New Hampshire between now and the New Hampshire primary? Whoo, that's a good question. We have done 31 so far and we're not slowing down, you know, it's about touching every hand It's about getting in front of every person. This is a marathon It's not a sprint these national polls don't mean anything right now this you know We've got debates coming up in August September and October That's when we're really going to start things start to see things move a little bit And so look I don't believe in shortcuts I believe doing it the right way and I believe earning every single person support and I'm gonna do whatever it takes to make That happen. Yeah, Morgan did a great job yesterday, but I did not expect to see a policeman an electrical grid expert a sixth -grader Many veterans and I am the person just returned from Beijing. Is that what you get in every New Hampshire Town Hall? Yes, it is really that's why I love doing town halls you get people from all walks of life with all different experiences And that's why I love the Q &A so much because you learn so much about what people see and hear and you get to see Not what the news tells you to care about but what real people care about and what real people care about is You hear them talk about the debt and how they're worried about it You hear them talk about the lack of transparency in the classroom You hear them talk about crime at all -time highs you hear them talk about an open border that's out of control. And yes Every day Americans do care about our national security and they want to know what we're going to do about it So it's a great forum to see all kinds of people and you know, I enjoy doing it I'm going to continue to do it an ambassador. What is the website for the campaign? Go to nikkihaley .com.

We should not just look away and say oh, that's not us We need to always be prepared to help them. That doesn't mean we put money in Ukraine That doesn't mean we put troops on the ground But it means we get with our allies and we make sure they have the equipment and the ammunition to win Dictators are very transparent. They will always tell you what they're gonna do China told us they were gonna take Hong Kong they did Russia said they were gonna move into Ukraine We watched it China said Taiwan's next we better believe them Russia said that after Ukraine is Poland and the Baltic that's going to lead to a world war That's what we're trying to prevent and so a win for Ukraine would send the best message to China when they're looking at Invading Taiwan it would send a message to North Korea testing ballistic missiles and it would send a message to Iran that wants to build A bomb but we have to also remember when China and Russia held hands and named themselves unlimited partners They were telling the world What they wanted the world to know and that means for us a win for Russia is a win for China and we can never forget That now madam ambassador yesterday and Heizer Bush CEO Brendan Whitworth went on the CBS early show I want to play the clip for you. He has asked by the host Would you send the beer to Dylan Mulvaney again? Here is the response cut 19 big social conversation taking place right now in big brands Right in the middle of it and it's not just our industry or Bud Light. It's happening in retail It's happening in fast food. And so for us what we need to understand is deeply understand and appreciate is the consumer and What they want what what they care about and what they expect from from big brands So this is a part of why you're getting it from all sides because I asked you would you do it again and people on The trans rights side of things supporting that community want you to say yes, of course, we want it with that fortitude And and people on the right would criticize you for saying yes, so where are you on the issue? I mean was this a mistake You know, we Bud Light has supported LGBTQ since 1998 So that's 25 years and as we've said from the beginning We'll continue to support the communities and organizations that we've supported for decades But as we move forward, you know, we want to focus on what we do best which is brewing great beer for everyone Listening to our consumers being humble and listening to them making sure that we do right by our employees take care and support our partners and Ultimately make an impact in the communities that we serve No ambassador Brandon Whitworth is a veteran of the CIA and the Marine Corps. He's a great American I do not think he had a great message. What do you think has happened here in this controversy? I think that they've learned a massive lesson and I think other companies would be smart to take notice I mean if you if you care about your consumers Then understand you don't have to pick which consumers are favorites The thing you have to do is get out of politics all together. We don't want division in this country We don't want you separating and picking which ones you want to highlight and which ones you don't You need to be paying attention to who drinks beer and that's everybody So quit trying to go and single out certain ones and act like you're the best company when it comes to inclusion You're the best company when it comes to inclusion. You shouldn't have to talk about it. So, you know What I'll tell you is right now these companies need to go back to just making money That's what they're supposed to do. And that means you do a message that appeals to everybody Not a select.

"Be accused rightly of asking a gotcha question if I ask people what are the Chinese up to in Zambia? But when I asked mayor Suarez about the Uighurs and he didn't know what any sign mispronounced it and I didn't I'd stop beating up On him if he stopped blaming me for the question you on the other hand Discuss the Uighurs at great length and I would love for people to hear what the Chinese ambassador told you about it For your listeners that don't know the Uighurs, you know there are a million over a million now Muslim Uighurs that are in what I call concentration camps in In China and basically the Chinese they make them change their name change their religion Sexual genocide abuse which we swore never again would we look away from genocide? It's happening right now in China and and the reason no one says anything about it It's because they're too scared of China and that's the problem But the Uighurs had been mistreated for for many years when I was at the United Nations I I not noticed what was happening. And so when we were having some sort of hearing on human rights I actually called out China on what they were doing with the Uighurs and At a an event where all of the Security Council was there the Chinese ambassador asked me if I would Step away for a bit and talk to him and I did and he said I know you mentioned those people Today and I said what people and he said those people That we have in China and I said you mean the Uighurs? He said yes, and he said you don't understand the situation and I said, well, please tell me He said they are bad people and I said, what do you mean? He said they're criminals and I said you mean these are people that have committed crimes He said in some cases yet, but in some not yet.

"Old. Joe Biden is 80 years old. Age is gonna matter a lot. Welcome back. America 2 Hewitt from Studio North. David Drucker, stuck in the Beltway, or it's probably a million degrees. Good morning, Drucker, how are you? Good morning. Our weather's great so far, Hugh. It hasn't turned yet, so don't jinx it. I got out of there before I did. I didn't want to melt. David M. Drucker on Twitter. He's with The Dispatch, of course. David, I covered in the first segment the speech by Ron DeSantis, the national religious broadcaster, Tim Scott's announcement, and then the ad by Glenn Youngkin yesterday that dropped that made everyone head turn and say, well, maybe he's rethinking it. Give us your assessment of those three developments. Well, listen, Tim Scott we knew was gonna run for president, and he's gonna test the theory that Republican primary voters want a statesman and somebody to focus strictly on a positive agenda and not contrast himself with the front runner or with other people in front, at least. That's how his team has described it, right? So they don't like this idea when they're gonna get asked the inevitable questions, at least in interviews. Well, listen, there's one guy leading in the polls. Why should Republican voters go with you instead of him? And the only criticism you're gonna see from Tim Scott, at least initially, is of Joe Biden. So we'll see if his theory of the case is correct. I'm dubious just based on all the reporting and research I've done over the past couple of years on Republican party and Republican voters, but we will see. Ron DeSantis finally becomes a candidate this week. I think it's due to drop tomorrow, Wednesday, with a video. He files his paperwork with the Federal Election Commission, and then we'll see how he launches this thing, right? Is he gonna do your typical speech with a bunch of adoring fans in his hometown, or is he just gonna hit the campaign trail? TBD, but with him finally a candidate, we'll see if that awakens a lot of the support that could be there for him, and sometimes all it takes is people knowing it's real. Finally, you've got this video with Glenn Youngkin, which you bring up. Listen, I spoke to his team last week after the video dropped, and I said, hey, what gives? I thought you guys were totally focused on Virginia's legislative races, which are this year, these are off -year legislative races in Virginia, and they said, yep, that's basically all it is. I don't think the governor has ever really ruled out running for president, but by his actions and by his focus, he basically has, because you don't run for president in November of the off -year when Iowa votes eight weeks to 12 weeks later. You just don't do it, not in 2023, and not 10 years ago even. So I really think this has much to do about nothing, but time will tell if I know what I'm talking about. That ad doesn't look like it's directed at the Virginia legislature to me. It doesn't, which is why I asked the question, but the governor is trying to raise a lot of money for a Republican takeover of the Virginia Senate, and how do you stay relevant with big donors? Well, you tell it, listen, maybe I will run for president. Totally haven't really ruled it out, but if you're going to make a serious bid for the White House in this day and age, then you're getting in by the end of June, like next month. You're not maybe running in November, we'll see how all of this goes. It's not that it can't be done, and he does have a personal bank account, but in order to file papers to be on the ballot everywhere, or in order to have teams on the ground doing the door knocking, in order to give voters an opportunity to choose you before they've settled on everybody else, especially after a couple of debates will have already occurred, presumably, it's just a very difficult thing to do. And so I just, it's just one of those things that if they would have, look, they could have told me last week, yeah, we're keeping our powder dry. We're making some moves. We don't want to really talk about it. They were just very emphatic and blunt. Here's our on the record statement. This is really much ado about nothing. Clearly there are people in Yonkin's orbit that want to keep this alive. The governor has never totally said no. He sort of did that event in LA. His team immediately walks it back. Then they dropped the video to which they basically walked back to me, the symbolism of the video. And so, you know, this is as good as mine. Now I ran down the numbers. The former president is 76. The current infirm president is 80. Ron DeSantis is 44. Nikki Haley is 51. Glenn Yonkin and Tim Scott are 57. Vice president Pence is 63. And Chris Christie is 60. Those are the half dozen I think are in the front. I don't know that Asa Hutchinson and Larry Elder are gonna hit the rumored metric of 40 ,000 individual donations and 1 % in the poll. That's the rumored metric to be on the debate. Vivek is gonna make that. He's gonna be on the stage. And there are a couple others I have mentioned. I'll get the comprehensive list. How big of an issue is age gonna be, David Drucker? Well, I mean, I think we know it's a factor in this race. So there are two issues. We know Republicans are gonna raise the age issue when it comes to President Biden. I'm really curious to see if they raise the age issue when it comes to former President Trump. I think that there is a market for change and a fresh face. Change often wins in presidential races. In 2016, President Trump, then future President Trump, was the ultimate change agent. Even though the Republican field was so accomplished, Republican voters felt like they had seen that all before. And here you have this disruptive change agent. And now he's, in a sense, an eight -year incumbent retread. But you've gotta make the case. And then it'll be interesting to see how Republican voters respond. But I don't think we can say that age will not be... The only way age really isn't a factor is if a former President Trump is the nominee again. Because then you've got a 77 -year -old versus an 80, 81 -year -old. Trump will be meant 78. Next year, Biden will be 81 by that time. And all of a sudden, it begins to cancel each other out. Finally, I think the boomers that we've worn out are welcome, and the silent generation is even older than the boomers..

Youngkin in Japan to forge supply chains with 'friends'

"Virginia's governor is meeting with chip makers in Japan hoping to create supply chains that aren't so dependent on China. Republican governor Glenn youngkin, a potential 2024 presidential candidate, is making his first trip to Asia as governor, he plans to meet with Japanese semiconductor executives to attract more chip makers to Virginia. I think that we can lead the charge in forging this trusted supply chain relationship with nations that will contribute to the long, the long-standing great relationship that we have. The un has adopted an increasingly hard line against China and said in January that he had scuttled an effort by Virginia to land a large electric vehicle battery plant, an initiative between Ford Motor Company and a Chinese company.

Should We Bother Indulging in the Republican Primary?

"Very interesting weekend this last weekend. We had a retreat for our top supporters at turning point USA and turning point action. And I learned a lot when I'm around some of our supporters and our donors. I asked them, you know, how are you feeling for 2024? And there was a interesting perspective that I totally sympathize with. They said, Charlie, we just don't want a long primary. We don't want a bloody primary while the Democrats get ready to coronate a single person. While they build a machine for ballot chasing and voter registration and we're just kind of worrying about a specific candidate. And I said, well, you know, do you guys, are you okay with Trump and a lot of Trump enthusiasts? I said, look, that's not really the point. The point is, I want to win. That was the main rallying cry, especially amongst our turning point action donors is. We want to win. I'm going to do what it takes to win. We want to get towards building a coalition of victory. We're sick of losing. We're sick of this pattern of falling short. We're sick of them being able to gain the system and we're going to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on a primary. We have to win. It has to be mission critical. And the question I want to ask, ask today, as we begin, is should we really play into? A Republican primary? Is it necessary? Is it a good thing to have a long, drawn out primary? I could see arguments for both sides, but it is a fact that Donald Trump has surged to the Republican primary polls in certain states. He has 60 or 70%. Other states, 50 to 60%. Donald Trump, in the last couple of months, his team decided to take a ultra aggressive, like ten out of ten aggressive posture towards Ron DeSantis. I personally didn't like a lot of this. I like Ron DeSantis. I think he's a good governor. But it's a fact that the strategy has worked for Donald Trump. He's relentlessly pounding Ron DeSantis by running ads. He is tweeting about him. Well, not tweeting, but he's posting social media about him. He's talking negatively about him and Ron DeSantis really hasn't responded very much. Desantis is one of his super PACS a couple ads up here or there, but it's working. And so the question is, can somebody else besides Donald Trump actually become the nominee? It's not going to be asa Hutchinson. It's not going to be Glenn youngkin Glen youngkin said he might want to run. Should we even indulge in Republican primaries? You see,

"I know from my email that there's quite a lot of overlap between my audience and Bret baier's on special report. I hope you are watching early last night when France's minister of economics and finance joined Brett on set to sort of clean up on aisle America for president Macron's apparently green lighting or getting out of the way of Xi invading Taiwan. Good morning Brett baier, welcome back to the Hugh Hewitt show. Good morning. Now you asked me last night what I thought of that interview. Now I get to ask you this morning. What did you think of that interview? Well, the reason I asked you, you and Britt and Jessica was because I clearly thought it was the finance minister walking that back or at least trying to present that trip in a different way to an American audience, I think the words of Emmanuel Macron not only in China but to reporters afterwards seemed to be pretty clear and I think the finance minister was trying to make them a little bit more fuzzy. Listen, they do have. There is a shift happening. And whether you can see it or not, you're starting to see more and more countries make the trip to Beijing. And maybe equivocate a bit when it comes to Taiwan. The interesting thing about it is that they don't want to when it comes to Russia and Ukraine. And that aggression, because it's in their backyard. And that is you drew that out of him. I'm amazed that there is a willful blindness going on to where we are with Taiwan and I think we're on the brink of a world crisis. It's the second dress rehearsal in ten months. Do many of your guests do to your executives, your producers share that. My gosh, this might be 1940, 1941 stuff, and I just asked Glenn youngkin at length, are we ready in Virginia's answer is yes, we're studying that, but I don't think most Americans are ready for that. No, I definitely most Americans aren't and we as a country are. I mean, there are all kinds of war games and simulations that say we're way behind on our ability to even help there, let alone how to respond. And I think that the administration has not been clear. I mean, I understand the ambiguity in the policy, but they've kind of taken it overboard with the president saying, yes, we're sending troops to Taiwan and China goes in. And then The White House walking that back every time. I think there's a real concern in the inner circles. You know, I used to cover The Pentagon. And I said yes to a lot of those folks. I think they think we're closer than we've been, but they're not sure it's imminent around the corner, but within a year, admiral staff Reed is keep saying three to 5 years. He was on earlier today. I really respect the admiralty knows what he's talking about, former allied supreme commander in NATO. But if it's not that consequences to the United States, the consequences for Taiwan are terrible, but the consequences to our economy and to our security are even worse and the possibility of going big is there..

"I just don't see it. Sorry. This is my last. I got to get this question in. This question, we've had a leak of national classified material. Nobody even recognized it at The Pentagon for three months. Do you think we will know we will know absolutely no if China is going to do it? We will never absolutely know, but the fact that The Pentagon missed what is, I think, going to turn out to be a kind of a gamer taking documents. I mean, there is a lot to unpackage here in fix. But I think it's a bit of a stretch to say in there for we're not going to be able to see China with our satellites with our collection capabilities. We have pretty strong intelligence. I think we'll get more of the heads up, but hey, let's keep digging through this and figure out what we can do to prepare. Boy, I hope admiral staff is right. But I'm going the other way. He's not even an alarmist, and I usually am not, but now I'm going the other way. Two in a row. It makes me worried. Admiral Stan, thank you, follow him on Twitter at staff Rita's Jay and follow me to the next segment with senator Jim talent coming right up. Welcome back, I'm Hugh Hewitt, Jim talent, with senator from Missouri, is with the bipartisan policy senator. Welcome back. I got to ask you, I've been talking with Glenn youngkin this morning and with admiral staff about what I sense is now the precipice of the world crisis because China has run two dress rehearsal invasions of Taiwan. Glenn youngkin is preparing his state for it. Admiral staff says three to 5 years. What does Jim talent think? Three things. First of all, it's been clear to anybody with a pulse for the last ten years that the Chinese are preparing to do this. Reuniting with Taiwan is a core interest in fact it's the most important core interest for the Chinese. I served 8 years on the U.S. China economic and security review commission. That's a mouthful to senior advisory commission to the Congress on all things China. And we assess two years ago in our 2021 report that they were at or near an initial invasion capabilities. So there's no question they've wanted to do this. We have done a little to prepare for it. In fact, for half of that, the last ten years we were operating under the defense sequester, okay? Two stams view is similar to The Pentagon's view. You remember admiral Davidson said that 2027 was the target date in his view. That's called the Davidson window by The Pentagon. And that's quite possible. I agree with what he said, we're living now on the margin of Xi Jinping's patients. That's what he said at the end of it. And three, I do think we're going to enter a period of heightened risk in the Taiwanese presidential election. If light chain K, the current vice president and who will be the DPP candidate if he wins and it's going to be in January of next year. Then I think we need to be very ready. And now what is one more thing? We will see if they're going to do an invasion or a total blockade of Taiwan. We will see those forces massive, okay? So we will have some warning and Steph radius the admiral is absolutely correct about that. Well, now I wonder whether or not we will, because they're sneaky like we're sneaky. I'm just curious about whether or not you think other governors and CEOs like Glenn youngkin is doing for Virginia is planning on what will happen or even trying to imagine the economic consequences are devastating in America to American markets, American manufacturing are surgical, the defense industrial base, if it happens, you know, and tort law, and you know this, you've got to provide a much protection depending upon the risks that you're facing. And right now we are not providing the level of preparation given the risk we are facing. I don't think, do you? No, we're not. We're not ready. I'm not positive. We could get ready in the sense that we don't know. I mean, the fog of war is going to be so great that it's hard to prepare. Now businesses are deleveraging from China. I mean, I think the message got through a couple of years ago to most of the big businesses that they needed to diversify their supply chains. And the ones that I talked to, the business associations, et cetera, they're all trying to do that. I doubt many governors have done what Glenn youngkin's done. Maybe they have, they ought to, and supply chains are going to be a real problem. I mean, there's no question. We're not going to be able to import from China. And what about raw materials? What about rare earth minerals? I mean, when you look. Yeah, it's going to be when you look at the president in Ireland. Talking about the black and tans instead of the all black, which is maybe the worst faux pas you can make in the Republic of Ireland to confuse a rugby team with the most hated repressive British force in modern Republican of Irish history, the black and tans. Do you think G looks and says, it's never going to get better in terms of infirmity in The White House and lack of energy and responsiveness and pacifism in the ruling party than it is right now. Yeah, I'm deeply concerned that I think it's hard to look at this administration and what they've done in Afghanistan with regard to the leak that we just saw in think that we're going to go up against a well planned and well executed sort of response by the United States. Now at the same time, I do think the resolution of the west in supporting Ukraine probably has impressed the Chinese. They are drawing lessons from that. And I fear that the lesson they're drawing is when they go, they're going to go big. And you here's the thing. They're planning on the assumption that we're going to defend Taiwan. We may not even have the option if not defending Taiwan. There's a distinct possibility that they will attack us before we have a chance to try and interrupt what they're doing with the blockader and invasion. What would that look like? The carrier in the Pacific. I think, as admirals of reedy said, cyberattacks, possibly going after the satellites to cutting off our command and communication. Possibly trying to neutralize Anderson airport Air Force Base in Guam, there's also the scenario where they blockade and they dare us to shoot first. I think if it happens, what we'll see is Jinping will at least try to set it up to give us an opportunity to take an off ramp and let them do whatever they want to do. But if it looks like we're going to be resupplying Taiwan or we're moving forces into range to enter and invasion. They could attack directly. You know, even if we took the Munich option and they're getting hit with missiles, what do you think happens to the markets ten seconds, Jim talent? It gets kind of heavy economic impacts such as we have never seen. I agree because it's the, I mean, it's everything suggested. It's everything. Jim talent on Twitter, thank you, Jim. I'm coming right back, America Bret baier is next, stay tuned. Morning, glory America, bonjour, high Canada..

Geopolitical Expert Predicts World Crisis Within 3-5 Years

"What about CEOs that do a bunch of business I was just trying to chairman Gallagher yesterday and he just sat down with Tim Cook and apple is in a world they can't get out of China, right? They can't. And so have you been advising we're not talking specifically about Apple now. Have you been advising any company on how to prepare for what would be the consequences from a world crisis? My role as a geopolitical expert in analyst is more along the lines of what are the chances that this could occur. What are the immediate tactical and operational effects, what is the likelihood of this happening? What are the timelines? Those are the kind of things that I'm particularly well positioned to talk about. I do not, as a general proposition, talk about the kind of business choices that you are articulating. I try and provide a sense of where the overall situation is going. So that the business leaders, the people like Glenn youngkin, when he was the CEO of the Carlyle group, would be in a position to make those kind of business decisions. And by the way, I think you're absolutely correct. It's not just Apple. Many firms are very reliant on China for manufacturing. Less so for services than for goods. And many of those businesses could find themselves in a very difficult position if a sudden sharp conflict broke out. Again, I don't think that's likely. I know some believe it could happen in the immediate future. I'd say it's three to 5 years away at a minimum.

Is America Prepared for China's Potential Invasion of Taiwan?

"Well, we were talking about he's about to go off to Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan, try and bring back some business. But I also asked him about has he prepared the state for a world crisis with China. In other words, what would happen in Virginia with the largest shipbuilding yard in the world for the United States Navy and surge capacity if that world crisis tips over. And I want to ask you the same thing. Do you think Americans are thinking seriously at every level about what happens if the dress rehearsals for the invasion of Taiwan, the second of which has just finished wrapped up second and two months ten months becomes the real deal. What would happen in the United States? If China decided and I don't think they will. So we can come back to our views of timeline here. But let's park timeline, whether it's 6 months a year, three years, 5 years or ten years. Let's park that. So let's just say China decides to invade Taiwan. You are correct. They have shown us kind of two views of how they might approach it. Clearly, it includes a blockade. It includes long-range missile strikes ballistic missile strikes and includes a high degree of cyber activity. So now we've seen all that tracks with the war plans we've had. I think it's the United States saw those events, my belief is we would work aggressively to defend Taiwan.

"Yeah, I'm coming. This matters so much because industrial capacity is always what matters in a world crisis. We used to have it. I'm not sure we have it anymore. Do you think Newport News and the surrounding ship? You're preparing the people to go to work there. And that's fabulous. I didn't know about that. But can the shipyard expand quickly if you have to? Well, there are real challenges and let's just be clear. They have full backlogs for years and years to come. And yet they're behind. And they're behind for all the reasons that manufacturing has struggled over the last number of years. Supply chains and workforce. And so this is why our focus from the Virginia standpoint is to drive innovation and to drive workforce. And there's super management at Newport new shipbuilding. I'm deeply deeply impressed with the leadership there in order to carry on. This legacy, which has been in the heart of our national defense since the very first naval deployments.

"I want to begin by asking you, I don't know the answer to this litigator is rarely asked questions. But I assume you have been to the People's Republic of China a few times because of your leadership of the Carlisle group at least. A few times, am I right? I have been there. And I tell you, during the time that I was at Carlisle and today, it has changed a lot. And you see just the imperialistic economic view they're taken around the world. And on top of that, they're aggressive military actions towards Taiwan. And it's why I was so pleased that we were able to pass legislation on a bipartisan basis to protect our agriculture from acquisition by entities owned by the Chinese Communist Party. We were able to ban TikTok and WeChat and listen, at the end of the day, I'm just going to make sure that Virginia isn't using taxpayer money in order to facilitate gains by companies that are benefiting the Chinese Communist Party.

A couple of these dreadful mornings every year. I always say the same thing. What would you do? What governor Glenn youngkin is doing is pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into mental health treatment. And open resources for people who are suffering. And no, and if self diagnosed or their parents or family or friends know that they'd fallen into the darkness and they, the answer here is not a ban on AR-15. I mean, that shed pistols as well as AR-15. That's not it. The answer is, what do we do? To stop our young people from careening. And it's not a large percentage of people who are trapped in psychotic killing madness. It's significant enough, but I'll play for you the police captain yesterday.

I think these things are important if you look at the profile of an entire student over time for them currently in their future. And it will identify what the act was.

Staying with Montgomery county, rising hate crimes have prompted a local lawmaker to pursue an anti hate task force. The call is coming from county council president Evan glass, who says the spike in racial ethnic and LGBTQ hate crimes is disturbing and frightening. Glass says the latest numbers from a couple years ago show more than 140 bias incidents. More than half were race related, many were focused on black people and two out of ten, targeted Asian people. Many of the crimes were aimed at Jewish people as well. Glass sent a letter about this to county executive Mark L rich yesterday. Several fairfax county school board members are urging Virginia governor Glenn youngkin to approve the advanced placement African American study scores and do it quickly. Request comes after youngkin, order a review to see whether the course violates his executive order that banned schools from teaching what are being called inherently divisive concepts. Lara Jane Cohen is among the board members who signed on to the letter two youngkin.
