Charlie Describes the Main Tenants of Conservative Populism

"So let me just first kind of tell you what I believe and why we believe it. It's kind of framed as conservative populism, put simply, we believe in the natural law. We believe as the declaration independence says the laws of nature and nature's God, we believe in limitations on human beings, and we should either limitations on power, both government power, and yes, of course, corporate power as Barry Goldwater said in the 1960s. We also believe America is strongest when families are flourishing when there's a strong moral center when middle class work is respected and appreciated. And the populist components of this is we need to be aware of what's happening around us. C one core institutions are failing like the family, which has been failing over the last 60 years in America, which can be attributed to many different things. I would attribute it to the rise of an aggressive social welfare state and an overindulgence in neoliberalism that we must be willing to do something about it when the family starts to disintegrate when our nation starts to fall apart when our borders remain wide open. And so we pair those two things together. Conservative populism. And the kind of philosophical basis for a lot of this is the willingness to act with prudence and wisdom to try and fix things that matter. Things that objectively matter. And I've been really looking forward to this discussion. I think I hope it's more of a discussion than a debate because we will disagree on plenty, but when you talk about a untouchable oligarchy, I completely agree. I think that there is an untouchable oligarchy in this country, both corporate and governmental scientific and technological that is crushing the everyday common man, where I think we're going to disagree is that I think the end goal, the thing that we must strive to is family formation, family protection, and that strong moral

Getting to Know Arizona's Attorney General Mark Brnovich

"Kircher with us today is the attorney general of the great state of Arizona, Mark brnovich. Welcome. Thanks, Charlie for having me on. So I can't wait to get into what I call the cartel of the colleges because you have some things that you really want to dive into that your office has been working on about corruption and higher education. Those are my words you can be more precise because you diplomatic? Yeah, that's right. But I don't have to be and I also want to kind of talk about some of the new things your office has released in regards to voter registration material and some other things regarding the Arizona audit and the election. But first, I just want you to introduce yourself to our audience. I think that would be really helpful. Tell us your story how you became, you know, attorney general of Arizona, and also I want to say that attorney general Burnham is running for U.S. Senate, which is a very important Senate race. So please introduce yourself. Well, thank you, Charlie. I always tell folks that if you want to know about me, you probably should know about my background in my history. And so I'm a first generation American, my family fled communism. And when your family has not just studied history but live it lived it, you have this great appreciation for how unique freedom is. And, you know, we know that folks like Ronald Reagan used to talk about freedom is never one more than one generation away from extinction. And, you know, my family live that. And that's why I'm so passionate about the constitution and our liberties. And so much of my career has been spent as I was raised that we have to protect freedom and we have an obligation to give back because this is the greatest country in the world. So, you know, I'm a public school kid. I still live in the same neighborhood. Neighborhood I grew up here in Arizona. I was a gang prosecutor at a law school. In fact, I met my wife there and she's now actually on the federal bench. So, you know, anybody was anything about federal judges. There's an old joke that what's the difference between God and a federal judge? God was wrong once I'm kidding. No, no, no, no. Hey, you're gonna get struck by lightning. Don't be saying that. No, no, God doesn't think he's a federal judge. But anyway, no, she's amazing, but then worked at the AG's office, a bit of federal prosecutor. Served our country in the army reserve. I worked at a think tank called the Goldwater institute where I wrote a lot and wrote briefs on the importance of property rights and individual liberty. And so I had never thought I was going to ever run for any office and I was brought up this real strong sense of that when you're the government, when you can take away people's livelihoods, their life, liberty property. You have to have the most highly qualified, but also the most ethical people in those office and people that understand how much power you have when you're the government.

Any Republican Senator Who Supports Biden's Infrastructure Bill Should Be Defeated

"Any senator. Republican senator who votes for this infrastructure bill should be defeated. They should be primaried. They're playing to the headlines for the New York Slim's in the Washington compost they want to be seen as reasonable. Bipartisanship in the face of radical extremism. Is a vice. To paraphrase Barry Goldwater. And with all this other stuff swirling around. As I said the other day, the Republicans should be putting their foot on the brake of everything. The Democrats want all the spending they want until they secure the border. There should be money to build the wall and secure the border. It is an infrastructure bill, after all, but there's all kinds of money for all kinds of pork and crap in this thing, as you might expect. And McConnell's all in He's all in. Seven of those who are of the 18 Republicans. Just got reelected. So they're not up for re election. Three of them are not running again. So 10 of the 18 are untouchable. But the other eight are touchable. The other eight are touchable. And behind this. It's not even 1.2. It's two trillion, according to the tax foundation. You know why? Because they use accounting. It's amazing thing. They're going after this poor guy that was the CFO. Of Trump Properties. Well, you didn't You, are you? You didn't report the use of a car. Okay.

And the results during the 2019 2020 school year alone, Teachers received at least 100 and 70 million less from their school district in salary increases than Arizona taxpayers provided for And that's part of a decades long pattern in Arizona education so seriously. District spending on administration, for example, rose what you mean teacher pay went down, but district spending on the administration went up. Yes, it did. Where are the red for Ed people out there, you know, protesting the administration. Where is that? I think what has happened as many teachers have big expressed frustration. About not being a priority. They've been putting pressure on lawmakers as part of their demands from our money, but that may be changing. Maybe we are fighting to the point where teachers Have actually caught on to what's going on. The Supreme Court had a major ruling that may change something that I love forever.

Interview With Leonard Matlovich

"I'm eric. Marcus and this is making a history in september. Nineteen seventy five. A stunning issue of time magazine. Hit the newsstands. On the cover. Was the photo of a young man wearing his air force uniform. His name tag said lich and the huge headline read. I am a homosexual. I had just started my senior year at hillcrest. High school in queens new york. By then i knew i was gay too but i would have died before admitting to anyone and i sure wouldn't have announced it on a cover of a magazine with millions of readers. I'd like to think. I admired leonard math for his. But it's more likely than i thought he was crazy. I never got to interview leonard. He died by the time. I started work on the original making a history book but studs did. And i'm glad we get to share. Leonard's voice thanks to our work with this radio archive one of the things i love about our history is. How many threads come together at different times. One of those threads was the tireless work of gay rights activists and firebrand. Frank cami frank is featured in his own making gay history episode but his name comes up and plenty of other episodes two and he played a pivotal role in leonard story. Frank had been looking for a test. Court case to challenge the military's ban against gay servicemembers in nineteen seventy five. Leonard stepped up to the plate. The thirty one year old air force tech sergeant declared his homosexuality to his commanding officer and when he was discharged he sued for reinstatement. It was the first case of its kind. And leonard instantly became the public face of a bitter fight for equal treatment of lgbtq servicemembers that continues to this day. Leonard was a picture perfect spokesman. He had an exemplary record was a decorated vietnam vet and taught classes designed to ease racial tensions in the armed forces. He was a patriot a conservative and a believer. He grew up catholic and later became an elder in the mormon church. But before. Leonard became champion for equality he. I had to overcome his homophobia and racism as you'll hear in his conversation with studs terkel which was first broadcast on november fourteenth nineteen seventy five. Just a heads up. Some listeners may find what leonard says about his past racist beliefs to be shocking cases. Obviously to be a member of the one. Of course. we're breaking through something involving what is more macho than the military army in this case the air force and this is of course this. You're right in the heart of heart of machismo. Are you not to say the least. And they want to keep that image. And i think it's a crazy mixed up world. We live in when we're rewarded for killing hating and punished for loving macho image. It's a wrong image. It tends to make people want to kill into murder. So we gotta go back to the beginnings without madam who are you. Where'd you come from. Well i usually tell people that My father spent thirty two years in the air force. So i tell people that i was born in georgia. Raising alaska joined the air force in england. I'm a resident florida virginia. Visiting chicago today. When i say that everything that i am and everything i hope to be out of the united states air force i was born here. Air force base and graduated from air force high school and most of my higher education has been through the air force so it's been military and even the ability to do what i'm doing today to fight the regulations that are considered unconstitutional. I have to that the air force to they gave me the courage because they kept telling me over and over again. And i kept telling the classes i taught and human relations and race relations that anything less than equality injustice is not tolerated in this country. You were of a different political entirely confederate flag. I idolize for many years. it was a symbol of on. I don't have words for a symbol similar to the past and the way things were they should still be necessary. Slavery but the white of the right of white oppression dedicated for barry goldwater door to door handing out literature for him. I oppose a sixty four civil rights act with fervor just went and of course no questions about vietnam war oh absolutely i spent three tours over there just like my country or fight the war for my country for equality. It's strange vietnam. The fight for a yellow man's equality. I hated blacks in this country.

Jeffrey Toobin on Writing About Trump

"Jeffrey toobin joins us now from northern Connecticut. His latest book is called True Crimes and misdemeanors the investigation of Donald, trump, it's already a New York Times Bestseller Jeff Welcome back to the podcast. It is a pleasure to be here Michelle. Well, we are talking about probably an unpleasant topic you've been covering this regularly for the New, Yorker, talking about it on CNN, the investigations of Donald. Trump plural I think and the impeachment process at what point did you think to yourself? Okay. This should be a book as well. Right at the beginning you know I have a special interest in fun for independent investigations of the presidency. I was one of the prosecutors in the Iran Contra -CATION in the Lawrence Walsh Investigation wrote my first book opening arguments about that did a book about. The Starr investigation of Whitewater Lewinsky in the Clinton years and so I know that the behind the scenes, stories of these investigations are always interesting. But what was a nerve ing as I started in was that I didn't realize that Muller which completely shut down all access I had to trust that eventually, I would get access to the Muller Office, but it was incredibly unnerving journalists to. Spend almost two years working on his side of the investigation really from the outside even though you've written about impeachment, you've written books about investigations. This book feels different and I'm curious to hear your take on what makes this book in the process of writing the book different from those previous books. Trump makes it different? The president is such an enormous figure in American history, his complete disregard. For norms his constant lying his inability or unwillingness to play by rules that Democrats and Republicans have played for all of certainly my conscious life it makes everything about these last three and a half years just feel different from anything I'd ever covered in anything I've ever felt as a citizen we've had conservative presidents. We've had liberal presidents, but we've never had a president like trump and. Both he as a protagonist in my story and the people who gravitate to him just make it totally different. Okay. Here's one way in which it feels different to me and I'm curious to hear your take and it's about trump but it's also about the reception of trump among Americans or certain group of Americans and it's that every single time there are some kind of event trump takes. Some action that seems to be a game changer. There's this expectation or there has been the expectation. Okay. Well, now, this is the end of this changes things, and that goes back to his not filing his tax returns during the campaign, but then I think the next point was with access Hollywood tapes and it's been that way ever since where where something will happen and people will say. Well now, that's it. You know there's gotTa be a consequence and then there really isn't a consequence I. Think you're right in part I mean you know and and you can go through others whether it was praising the white supremacists in Charlottesville standing by Vladimir Putin, in Helsinki, and disparaging the American intelligence agencies firing James Comey which seemed like complete departures from how we expect presidents to behave. Another theme of my journalistic career has been the evolution of the Republican Party that if you go back to Richard Nixon the turning point in Watergate was when seven Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee voted in favor of impeachment and then ultimately Barry Goldwater Hugh Scott John Rhodes went to Nixon and say we can't support you anymore those three famous Republicans The Republican Party has turned into a trump call. And the ability of the president to do absolutely anything no matter how outrageous and retain the support of that forty percent of the country. Is. Something we've never seen before it's been building through the past couple of decades, but I think that's what accounts for the phenomenon you describe, which is no matter what he does the the political architecture of our time really never changes anymore because fifty five percent of the people are appalled forty forty percent of the people stick with trump and thus we have the election we have. So you're saying it's essentially the fact that he's not held. Accountable is a result of the fact that the party has sort of been entirely captured by trump. He has captive and very loyal audience among Americans, and then presumably the other arm of that is what's happened with the media and that certain is catering to and delivering that message. I. Can just add one thing. You know a lot of people like what trump is doing. It's not like this forty percent says, well, you know it's bad that he fires Komai. It's bad that he says, all these races. Thanks their gladis says racist things. I. Mean there are a lot of people in the country who have the same attitudes and I think that's what's chilling for people like me who was. I like to think is not a racist, but the way trump behaves in public it's a feature, not a bug people don't support him in spite of his excesses they support him because it's

"Of Liberty is no vice. And when he got the Republican nomination, it was this surprising, shocking thing kind of not entirely unlike when Donald Trump won the Republican nomination. But then what was supposed to happen next with Trump did happen with Goldwater, right? He lost in a landslide. So this thing that we were predicting what happen in 2016? That did happen in 1964. So then all these Sort of nice, clean cut. Liberal historians got to say what they wanted to say all along, which was Goldwater was always to fringe for the American electorate. He was never electable in the first place. This just shows that if you're too extreme, and you're too ideological, you're never going to get anywhere in American politics, right? And so that became the entrenched narrative. Really accepted sort of a standard narrative of the history of conservatism propounded by conservatives themselves. That Central to their political success. Basically how they entered prime time was through the act of disciplining the fringes of their coalition. So posting second book is called Nixon Land comes out in 2008. And that's about the rise of Nixon. How he triumphs in these two big elections, then in proteins, third book called Invisible Bridge. We start getting Nixon's downfall and by the middle of that book, Nixon is disgraced. He's left the White House. It just seems like no one of his ilk is going to be able to rise again. Nixon was this kind of shocking, alienating angry figure. And so how can that right wing of the Republican Party Never be successful again. So you're kind of, you know, spit out into this landscape of okay. Nixon's gone, The country needs a unifier. And everyone at the time is kind of assuming that that unifier is going to come from somewhere from the center of the political spectrum. And what Reagan land shows is that Ronald Reagan was able to become that unifier not from the centre, but by actually picking up on the really Ideological extreme conservative commitments of Richard Nixon and just kind of putting a more optimistic, shiny gloss on him. I believe the Republican Party has a platform that is A banner of bold, unmistakable colors with no pale pastel shades..

"It's hard to imagine, but one of the most conservative candidates ever picked as the Republican nominee for president Barry Goldwater was nominated right here.

Still in the 19 sixties, The nine County Bay area had a vibrant Republican party, and it was not conservative. But it was Republican period. It was traditional Republicans rather than the kind that Goldwater advocated. Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown says. At that point, there were huge partisan differences on the major issues.

It hangs over the city because it set the foundation for what their power establishment in the city is right now, which is mainstream liberalism. In 1964. Phil Burton got elected to Congress, and he helped other liberal politicians like Willie Brown win political office, too. As Phil Burton, stature and power grew, his political army became known as the Burton Machine. Art Agnos, former San Francisco mayor was part of that machine. They brought together a assembly of people, activist volunteers Civil rights act all that, and they hung together with a loyalty because of their common commitment to the issues that they all believed it.

And while I don't blame Donald Trump for the virus, I blame him for his lack of action and because of that, we're sitting here zooming or facetime ing with our grandchildren instead of hugging and kissing them. And that's hard. Joe Biden knows every moment is precious I trust you Biden to get this virus under control? I'm Joe Biden and I approve this message. Seems like a really real smart relatable ad for a portion of the population that Joe Biden is trying to focus on. This is for all the people who were sold on idea that there was some normal around the Ben. During the trump years because there is no normal during trump that was false join me. Now for more on the different approaches, the two campaigns are taking is Adrian Shropshire. She's a veteran democratic strategist and executive director of black pack had a lot of experience in politics community organizing and ads as well and I just I was so struck by this ad agent because it's so understood in. So many ways given how terrible things are and given the kind of micro targeted median voter. He's trying to reach you know elderly couple or senior citizen couple in Florida. Yeah I mean the reality is that. Voters understand where we are. They understand the crisis that we're in. They do not. WanNa see campaign after campaign ad reminding them of our national. Right. I've said he focused move after folks. And what? The message that voters say that they want to hear is one of national unity. They WanNa hear message about a path forward how this mess is going to get fixed and I think the brilliant thing about that ad is that. while. It appears to be targeted at one segment of the electorate. The reality is that that is all of us, right? That is my entire family every Sunday night sitting zoom call, right so it is it is. There is a moment where the multipronged crisis that are facing the country are literally touching every single one of us and what's brilliant about the ad is that. You know it's it leads toward that unifying message right? It is it in every message quite frankly every ad I would hope to see that comes out of the campaign on is a way to unify to tell a message to tell a story that connects people about the moment that we're in. It's really if you think about it in this in this way having a national unity being a campaign strategy all by itself.

"I think you need to know brought to you by strong bill. Plumbing air and solar number one president trump shocks the media just to play with them and the Damn says I'm taking Hydroxy Corcoran consulted with the White House physician. He's doing it and people are just losing their minds. Neil Cavuto says it could kill you what you know so can a car genius. Second thing I think you need to know state lawmakers State Rep. John Cavanaugh been found hills proposing legislation that would ban anyone for going to jail if they violate ducey or. Any other governor's executive order in the future. That's pretty good. We'll see ducey would sign that if it gets through anywhere by the way also he wants to set the maximum fine if you violate the executive order to be no more than one hundred bucks here you go third thing. I think you need to know trump doing a good thing. He is trying to get pharmaceutical manufacturing out of China to bring it back to America. Three hundred fifty four million dollar contract you've been to a generic drug maker to create the nation's first strategic stockpile of ingredients that are needed to make these medicines it's happening it's good less reliance on India and China three things. I think you need to know. So we had mark Benjamin last week and he and a couple of the lawmakers sent a letter or they go they want Attorney General Brnovich to look into pima county overreaching with these new regulations. That are just insanely stupid. For businesses that go beyond Doug Ducey's executive order so it makes it makes it illegal actually makes. You can't can't do that They want they sent a letter to Pima County. Saying we're doing this. You can just resent them. We're doing it. They're meeting this morning at nine. Am and it's not just lawmakers now and and Bronevich now it's the Goldwater Institute. They have fired off a letter. I put it on my facebook page. Facebook DOT COM SLASH GEAR. Lewis Radio like it and follow it and well. You could see it for yourself. We're going to talk about right now with the man who wrote it Tim. Santa Further Goldwater Institute's Vice President. For Litigation. Tim Welcome back to Kennedy. How you doing man? Fine thanks surrounded back. You got it so. Walk me through the story. I saw in the letter. You said you were contacted by some businesses pima county after Pima County decided to have some insane regulations that they might be possible to actually accomplish to you know named the businesses but I mean when did they contact you. And what issues do you have and do? They have with pima counties regulations. Yeah this has been developing pretty quickly. I think it was late last week that we were. We reached several businesses and and business groups reached out to us about these These restrictions and the the problem here is that the county I think they really want to be seen as doing something taking action and the problem with that is that the reason why. The governor's order is written the way it is is to allow businesses to take action not to encourage the government to come in and the local governments would come in and start organizing how businesses can do business what what happened is governor do. C.'s executive orders says we're going to open up but we're going to do it. In a structured way that says businesses must take steps and design a plan for keeping customers sakes and that plan has to be consistent with the guidance that federal and state agencies have provided but then the another provision of that order says counties are not allowed to deviate from this rule we wanna let businesses come up with the rules that are appropriate for their facilities and for their customers ease and things like that. 'cause they're in the best position to know but instead pima county comes in and the next day adopts proclamation that says all these highly detailed regulations that say you know how many customers you can have here and how you can do business and this kind of industry kind of industry and I. You mentioned some literally make no sense. The my favorite one is. There's a ruling there that says that if you have something delivered if you're running a business and a deliveryman arrives with you know. Let's say tomatoes or or newspapers or whatever you the business you have to do. You have to test him for symptoms of covert now how in the world demise opposed to test the delivery guy for Kobe when he doesn't work for me and the ordinance does not say what I'm supposed to do if he tests positive it just says I have to ask them. I suppose I could. You could give him a thermometer. And if he's running a fever then shrive and say okay. Go about Your Business. I so these regulations don't make a lot of sense and they violate what Governor. Ducey had mind which was to let businesses come up with a plan that's appropriate for their facilities and for their employees and for their customers because that's what businesses do well. Now I don't want you and I don't think you will say anything bad about a fellow attorney but the Pima County Administrator Chuck Berry claims that these regulations were all vetted by the county attorney. I guess somebody in their office who knows Don't you think that any attorney would say what you just said like all right? You want to do this. What happens if they are a positive? They have fever. Who knows what you know? How are you supposed to? Don't you think attorney should have said something to them like you expect next and at that point should have stop them from even doing this? Well you know. Garrett it wouldn't be the first time that we had the goldwater institute disagreed with the Pima County Attorney's office. That's yes I I certainly do. I mean I think you know people are making these things up as they go along because this is this is something with but none of us really know how something like this work tonight. I give them benefit out there. I think they are trying to do what they think is best. Obviously it's just that they got the ball rolling and they didn't read the governor's executive order closely enough. And the the real problem here. The fault is that there is a certain type of person who thinks that government is in the business of running things and that government sets all the rules and that if government didn't set the rules and they won't be no rules and they forget the fact that businesses and private organizations and civil society citizens acting on their own are also capable of coming up with rules. In fact they're better at it. The government is because they pay the price. If they get it wrong you know I the way I often put it to people. Is You know if if a private business get something wrong. Then they lose customers and they lose income but government if if they get it wrong nothing happens to them. They don't they don't lose out on anything if they get the answer. In fact if government gets the answer wrong very often shrug and say well. That's because our budget is to is too low and raise taxes because they got they got the answer wrong so if government doesn't pay the price it gets an something wrong. Why in the world would you trust it to get something right? And I think Governor Ducey order really takes that lesson to heart and says let's allow private business. Isn't this to come up with rules? That are appropriate for for doing business responsibly. And Yeah if they do something bad than we can step in and take you know take action against them but let's let them have the first shot instead. Pima County I think just reflexively assume that government has to take charge everything and so the first thing they did was come up with rules for how to have run. Every business account. Tim Sandifer with the Goldwater Institute is on. Am seven hundred. I don't know if you saw tim the reaction a letter fired off by Chuck huckleberry Friday afternoon after. He got the letter from the lawmakers here about the fourteen eighty-seven form he actually is calling for this morning. During the meeting to have some things change they want things clarified and it involves your favorite part. Says you're the restaurant that restaurant staff should not have to try to determine if he perspective patron is ill with cove nineteen so I didn't even see anything about patrons I thought it was only staff and vendors so I mean to me. That's not good enough. What's your take. Yeah and you know even there. There's there's a opportunity for mischief. I mean we've seen some proposals by some local governments saying things like the government should write down every single customer's name and phone number and everything which you know my goodness what about privacy concerns and tracing people and what. How else is this information going to be used in the future? And he's kind of the. We really should be concerned about that and know it sounds paranoid until you remember. The history of government has abused. Its power in so many cases in the past and I think that was why everybody said why. Don't we allow private businesses to come up with their own solutions? Citizens BUSINESSES DON'T WANNA to get a reputation for making customer sick. Don't want to get a reputation. We're making their employees. You sick they. They have a lot at stake here. They have more at stake than than the government does. That's for sure. And so there's every reason in the world to say let's let the you know the the Arizona Restaurant Association and other business groups come up with solutions to this problem that are workable and allow people on one hand to get back to work but on the other hand to be safe and it's a it's a very reasonable approach and we. That's it's a shame that Huma County officials just reflexively assume that bureaucrats know best. So what do you WANNA see? WanNa see all fifteen of these new regulations because some of them. I think were a bit much. Establishing marks every six feet so people can stand as they get ready for the restroom and other places and things like that. Do you want to see all fifteen of these regulations were sending this whole proclamation away? Yes the proclamation should be repealed because it exceeds the governor's executive order and is therefore unlawful violates Arizona Statute. That doesn't mean that all of these things are bad ideas about things like putting tape on the Florida. Tell people where to stand up thing in Phoenix. I. I've been there a couple of restaurants not long ago that we're already doing that on their own and there's no reason why those are bad ideas. It's just that the government shouldn't be the local government shouldn't be in the place of a dictating that at this point. This is something for businesses to to resolve on their own and then if it turns out that they're doing something wrong you can pursue them or something like that but at this point pima county should rescind the entire proclamation and allow businesses to come up with solutions to this problem. As the governor's order required. Now what if they don't what if they say no? We're not going to do. What is your next step. Well you know I think we would then have to assess whether to take action against Pima County and the the problem with that is mostly that I'm a little tired of suing Pima County. So you know it's it's a long drive for me to go down to the courthouse but What can't you do at night? You know every everything now is a virtual so you don't show up coast due to a Webcam with that way. So you have that. And then what's your take on this situation with these lawmakers wanting a legal opinion from the Torney General Brnovich. Yeah I mean that's the that's a a wonderful mechanism that Arizona created if you years ago that that says if a legislator aware that a local government is doing something that violates the state's laws or the state constitution that the legislator can ask the Attorney General to investigate it and Referred the case to the Supreme Court. If need be which gets a swift resolution to those kinds of problems..

vulnerable sometimes fighting from the most horrible means holding the most powerful accountable and that's what we are here to do today the American people will have to live with the decisions made in this chamber in fact senators I believe that the decision in this case what sectors strains democracies around the world democracy is a gift that each generation gives to the next one if we say that this president can put his own interests above all else even when lives are at stake then we give our nation's children a weaker democracy then we inherited from those that came before us the next generation deserves better they are counting on us I'm a Catholic and my faith teaches me that we all need forgiveness I have given this president the benefit of the doubt from the beginning despite my strong opposition to so many of his policies I know that the success of our nation depends on the success of our leader but he has let us down senators we know what the president did and why he did it this fact is seriously not in doubt senators on both sides of the aisle have said as much the question for you now is doesn't warrant removal from office we say yes we cannot simply hope that this president will realize that he has done wrong or inappropriate and hope it he does better we have done that so many other times we know that he is not apologize he is not offered to change we all know that he will do it again what president trump did this time Pierce is the heart of who we are as a country we must stop him from further harming our democracy we must stop him from further be train is always we must stop him from tearing up our constitution the founders knew that in order for our Republic to survive we would need to be able to remove some of our leaders from office when they put their interests above the country's interest senators we have proven that this president committed what is called the ABC's of impeachable behavior abusing its power betraying the nation and corrupting our elections he deserves to be removed for taking a very actions of the framers fight out feared would undermine our country the framers designed impeachment for this very case centers when I was growing up poor in South Texas picking cotton I confess I didn't spend any time thinking about the framers white me little girls and boys across America aren't asking at home what the framers meant by a high crimes and misdemeanors but some day they will ask why we didn't do anything to stop this president who's put his put his own interests above what was good for all of us they will ask they will want to understand senators we inherited a democracy now we must protect it and pass it on to the next generation we simply can't give our children a democracy if their president is above the law because in this country no one is above the law not me that any of you not even this president not as stock order see month delay now the end this president must be removed with that I yield to my colleague Mister crow congressman Sylvia Garcia Democrat from Texas one of the house impeachment managers not the manager coming up Democrat chasing crow of Colorado Mister Chief Justice members of the Senate two weeks ago we started this trial promising to show you that the president withheld three hundred and ninety one million dollars a foreign military aid of course in ally at war to help him win the twenty twenty election in by many of your own admissions we succeeded in showing you that because the facts don't matter we also promised you that eventually all of the facts would come out and that continues to be true we didn't just show you that the president abused his power and obstructed Congress we painted a broader picture of president trump a picture of a man who thinks that the constitution doesn't serve as a check on his power but rather give it to him and I'm limited way a man who believes that his personal ambitions are synonymous with the good of the country a man who in his own words thanks that if you're a star they will let you do anything in short it's the picture of a man who will always put his own personal interests above the interests of the country that he has sworn to protect but what's in in with anyway are they relics of the past we simply recite them out of custom to me and represents a firm commitment to a life of service agreement to set aside your personal interest your comfort and your ambition to serve the greater good I came in to sacrifice I explained you last week that I believe America is great not because of the ambition of having anyone ma'am not simply be because we say it's true but because of our almost two hundred and fifty year history millions of Americans have taken the oath and they meant it many of them followed through on that with by giving everything to keep it but there is more to it than simply keeping your word because I know it is also a bond between people who have made a common promise perhaps the strongest example is the promise between the commander in chief and our men and women in uniform those men and women took the oath with the understanding that the commander in chief our president what I always put the interests of the country and their interests above his own an understanding that his orders will be in the best interests of the country and that their sacrifice and fulfilling those orders will always serve the common good but what we have clearly showing the last few weeks and what president trump has shown us the past few years is that this promise flows only one way is my Angelou's said when someone shows you who they are believe them the first time many of us in this room are parents we all try to teach our kids the important lessons of life one of those lessons is that you won't always be the strongest you won't always be the fastest and you won't always went there are a lot of things outside our control but my wife and I have tried to teach our kids that well we can always control our choices it's in that spirit that hanging in my son's room is a quote from Harry potter the quote is from for separate faster Dumbledore who said it is our choices that show who we truly are far more than our abilities this trial will soon be over but there will be many choices for all of us in the days ahead the most pressing of which is how each of us will decide to fulfill our oaths more than our words are choices will show the world who we really are what type of leaders we will be on what type of nation we will be Sonny finished right began with an explanation of why I am here standing before you I've been carrying my kids constitutions these last few weeks and this morning I wrote I know to them to explain why I'm here our founders recognized the failings of all people so they designed a system to ensure that the ideas and principles contained in this document would always be greater than any one person it's the idea that no one is above the law but our system only works of people stand up and fight for it and fighting for something important always comes with a cost someday you may be called upon to defend the principles and ideas and body in our constitution may the memory and spirit of those who sacrificed for them in the past guide you and give you strength as you fight for them in the future thank you for your time

How Bolton's Allegations Could Change the Impeachment Trial

"It's the second week of the Senate impeachment trial of president trump and there's a new wildcard in the mix John Bolton a draft of the former national security advisers memoir was leaked over the weekend in it. He reportedly writes that. President trump told him he wanted to freeze aid to Ukraine until the country. Aidid investigations into Democrats including his political rival former vice president. Joe Biden the allegation strike at the center of the impeachment inquiry and could change the dynamics in the Senate or the President's defense team is making their arguments today. Joining me now with more details is Wall Street Journal Executive Washington editor Jerry. seib Jerry this leak from John Bolton's upcoming book is throwing a lot of uncertainty into the Senate impeachment trial. Democrats are renewing their calls for Bolton to testify and it could prompt president trump's defense to tweak their strategy. How do you think this could change what we see in the next few days of the impeachment trial well I think it has to immediate impacts one is I think it affects or could affect at least the tactics? The president's defense team uses as it moves through its phase days of the arguments in the Senate it has been essentially trying to have it both ways to say there was no quid pro quo when the president asks Ukraine for Investigations Investigations into corruption. In the Biden's there was no threat of withholding military aid at the same time so there was no quid pro quo. But and secondly even if there there was such a quid pro quo. It would have been perfectly within the president's rights to ask for that because he was interested in getting to the bottom of corruption Ukraine. I think now that you have John Bolton saying saying well yes there was a quid pro quo. The president told me that he was going to withhold aid until the Ukrainians started investigating the Biden's that now I think the president's defense team probably has to fall back on the well. That was perfectly acceptable argument. So I think it changes and somewhat restricts their ability to argue their case the second effect and probably conceivably conceivably the more important one is that it increases dramatically the chances that there will be a vote in the Senate to call witnesses once. The President's defense team has done making. It's case in to do that. You'd have four. Republican senators agree with all the Democrats. Witnesses ought to be called including John Bolton on Saturday. That didn't seem very likely Egli to happen on Monday. After the Bolton revelation. I think it's much more likely and that in turn I imagine could open the door to calling more witnesses besides Bolton right exactly exactly because once you open that door there are a lot of things that can happen and the Democrats are equally eager to hear from Mick Mulvaney. The Acting White House Chief of staff and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will potentially others and then you will have Republicans demanding that Joe Biden or his son. Hunter Biden be called to testify about their actions in Ukraine rain. And so you have probably dueling subpoena fights and elongation of the whole trial section of the impeachment process which the president doesn't want and very uncertain outcomes the law of surprises and potentially unser pleasant surprises for both sides. Comes into play so you will have moved from a process is that seemed to be headed toward a certain conclusion to one in which there's at least more uncertainty. I think it's very unlikely that. Any of these scenarios result in the president being convicted hidden removed from office but the twists and turns in the political impact list twists and turns are much harder to predict now. How damaging could Bolton's testimony for the president in this trial if we go down that road where he is called as a witness well I think it's damaging potentially in the sense that it will Would serve if the if the leaks. What he's written? A book are correct to basically confirmed one of the articles of impeachment that the Democrats have put forward which is that. There was undue undue pressure put on Ukraine in the form of withholding military aid to coerce the Ukrainian to investigate the president's political opponents. That is Joe Biden. That would essentially Ashley be confirmed if the leaks are correct. It doesn't however get to the follow on question which Republicans would stress. which is? That's not an impeachable offense. You may disagree with that. We think the president was in within his rights to press for an answer to what was going on in Ukraine during the Obama years as a matter of foreign policy and so what Republicans will say. It's not an impeachable offense. Even if you believe everything John Bolton said so I I think it complicates the political narrative. I doubt that it changes inches. The outcome as I said because Republicans are both convinced there there was less there the meets the eye and that whatever the president did does not amount to a high crime or misdemeanor meaner as required under the constitution for impeachment and conviction Jerry. How do Republicans view John Bolton he has a long history in Washington how are Republicans responding responding to this leak? And how are they viewing Bolton's relationship to president trump. Well that's an interesting question because you have a role reversal in both parties. He's on John Bolton right now. For years and years John Bolton was kind of a a villainous figure in the Democratic Party very conservative goes back to campaigning for Barry Goldwater when he was in his youth served in the Reagan and Bush administrations very hawkish conservative and very much reviled by Democrats now. They're begging for John Bolton to stand up and be a man of principle as we know he is and testify and on the Republican side. You have a similar reversal. I mean John Bolton is conservatives conservative he served in every Republican administration nations since Ronald Reagan. And now he's being attacked by. Republicans is not credible person and so this is kind of the whiplash effect that you see often in the the trump administration when people who were traditional Republican conservatives are not necessarily trusted now and those same kinds of conservatives. Don't necessarily love the trump administration association. So there's a kind of identity crisis on the right to to some extent these days and John Bolton personifies that now in this context in some ways you know one of the ironies. arnie's in this situation is that there are a lot of things that John Bolton has said and written for years that are very trumpian in the way he's described it very much in sync with President and trump. He has said you can't trust the European Union for example and he has said the State Department is a A hotbed of careerist liberals who try to make policy not just execute the president's policy especially when that president is a Republican. Those are the exact things that Donald Trump says about the EU and the State Department bureaucracy. So there is a there's there's a lot of overlap between John Bolton things and what Donald Trump thinks the place where they fell out with each other and the reason for this controversy now is Moscow in Russia Russia where John Bolton is quite the Hawk and therefore wanted to make sure that Ukraine was armed to confront Russia and president trump has a much more benign view of Russia and Vladimir Putin hooton overall and so the irony here is that there's a lot of trump and John Bolton just not on this question of Ukraine Wall Street Journal Executive Washington editor Jerry. seib thank thank you so

"I have before me. and I ordered this some time ago and it wasn't easy to find. this magazine called fact. which is the result of the Goldwater rule is you know yes that's actually a long story you said I could ask you questions all right go head but at that but you're you're jumping in and I I I just want to finish this and on the cover. it says one thousand one hundred and eighty nine psychiatrists say call waters psychologically unfit to be president. did you ever read this magazine yes I actually read the comments too well what do you make of them so it was a survey of more than twelve thousand psychiatrists and only about eleven hundred responded. and and it was. you know less than ten percent so that less than ten percent speaking irresponsibly is not a big deal but it was a tabloid magazine which sensationalize the responses and somewhere gregis others for actually quite reasonable and Barry Goldwater brought a lawsuit yes and he went against the magazine and the American psychiatric association was embarrassed so in response to that he just added on a rule that's actually the rule was it really necessary it's more it's a it's an extension of good practice. not to die while they restated the rodent thing in twenty seventeen what did they say actually they are created a new rule again did they say so it used to be you couldn't diagnose a public figure but you should educate the public when asked about a public figure and educate in general terms and it was part of participating in activities that improve the community and better public health because psychiatrists have a responsibility to society as well as a patient and that's actually the context of the Goldwater you read the whole book though you weren't asked you write an entire book and by the way let me just say this is a life. America New York times versus Solomon was nineteen was after this decision no actually what happens is people can accuse people of all kinds of stuff now public figures and not be held to account legally Iraq then. what is a doctor how may I help you. as a medical professional I actually preferred the human over the political level I've never been interested in politics I don't know what that means. because it's the femoral I what does that mean political over human eternal actor Dr I've been interested in more eternal things will really allow Aristotle considered Aristotle considered politics about humanity not just about elections not just about representative government right he talked lower lower he talked about the polity so when we talk about politics we're not talking about you know Ralph poll numbers in something like that we're talking about the body politic society the civil society go ahead. you have wanted to do this interview someone pointed out to me a you tube video where you were complaining that I I guess I consented and then declined why did you what wish to do this interview first I don't remember saying you consented and declined when did I say that Mr producer. never never why don't you send us a let you send us a link to the you tube video now posted I mean my question is simply why did you all get your facts straight first now what your quote why did I want to do this interview I'm gonna tell you. I read your book. I've been watching you on television. and I consider you a disgrace. and why is that that's why because in my view. if you're a mental health professional. you don't go on to left wing shows our blinds stay out there all over MSNBC advice Democrats in Congress all use me well you've been around I've seen you. promoting your book. promoting your position. you say you're you're humanist I think you said you don't really want to get involved in politics that's baloney. excuse me it's my observations now I admit not based on a medical training but based on legal training and common sense. about that you have not only allow yourselves to become a political play thing of the left you are loving it. and so that is why I want to do on this program we disagree he does I mean man because I am I am inside your head you're inside my head you're inside everybody's head go ahead right click I don't profit from the book all the revenue there I didn't say you profited from the book said that don't benefit from public appearances in fact my reputation as I didn't say you do. you're out there promoting a propagandistic point of view that is not based on medical science or in my view this is just my opinion. or in in the normally accepted standards of your profession if I'm wrong I'm wrong that's my view yes because it's really unprecedented that so many mental health professionals have risen up for any president of any party in fact there are thousands who are formed a coalition you're damning your own profession I agree with you because the APA was not acting up because because so many psychiatrists are liberals. favoring the government over protection of now you sound like a conspiracy theorist so you're saying you're perfect excuse me you're saying your professional organization is siding with the government against its members of the vast majority members don't believe that it said that it was doing so to protect federal funding. any house tunes federal funding. federal funding so so there hold on so the bought and paid for the API so we should ignore them are you a Republican I'm a conservative Republican but sometimes they are public for Democrats never okay did you vote for Donald Trump yes now would you say your views are objective yes you're trying to discount my view even though I am not a Democrat I did not only vote for death for Democrats you said you voted for one Republican and you wouldn't tell me who I've been more honest with you then you've been with me who did you vote for. well I told you I supported one I was too young. I see and now I believe I missed it I was mistaken. now what else do you want a discount my point of view based on I don't discount your point of view at all I think it's a mess hold on I met with you putting words in my mouth even I don't excuse me excuse me I don't discount your point of view. I think what you're doing is in my personal opinion grossly on professional. I don't discount your point of view. what's that were you saying your opinion is grossly on pearl yours yours. oh okay that's why am I holding myself out as a medical doctor doing psychoanalyze analysis and doing all that stuff now mean not hearing my point of view you have already read. conclusion and you will not be swayed so why are we having this here's what I'll do I'm gonna give you thirty seconds without interruption to tell my audience why you're right go ahead. because I am concerned about humanity and when there is a risk to its health and safety I have an obligation a professional obligation to society to speak up and I have tried all confidential avenues I have tried to go about things a quiet way it has not worked and so my last resort is to be of service to the public I am I am pleading to the public because the public is also my responsibility in so far as health is concerned I am not acting as a political agent I am not interested in politics it is merely my trying to need a medical need and I would do the same if it were a democratic president. what do you make a fair enough what do you make of Joe Biden's mental health. it seems like it or not so perfect but compared to Donald Trump please wait quite better off and I believe he has the insight and integrity to pass all tasks if he were to becoming incapacitated I'm not sure I could say the same about Mr com and why why why do you assume that about Joe Biden I don't know that I look at patterns of behavior so you know it as a fact very good no I have a hypothesis. we'll have a hypothesis. this is an you tested over time and if your hypothesis is not a time and time again and in fact affirmed and it completely turned out as he predicted then you you'll SS the situation as consistent with your hypothesis and that's been exactly the case with Mr trump yes when we wrote the book why I asked you about Joe binding you keep talking about Donald Trump is that a yes because psychologically finger is at. is is I don't know. his obsession a psychological issue no unless they become a danger to the public that are you obsessed with Donald Trump. no I'm concerned about the danger until this removes the world concerned about danger I'm concerned about the danger Joe Biden but that doesn't mean I'm gonna just psychologically analyze the man are you from a farm if you're not a psychological professional so I wouldn't expect you to and I suspect a hundred thousand in your profession wouldn't it no it's not your job thank you just trash your own association basically said they sold out to the federal government did you say there. no the association did when an institution does so in a way so see Asian dead right stand up for the integrity of my field I don't speak up. because I'm an independent you last night Gail was I'm sorry you know Florence Nightingale was. you sound like you have the Florence Nightingale complex may say that with all due respect you're standing up for your profession you doctor bandy Lee I think all professional should stand up for their profession they should not be just blind obedience non thinkers they should not become technicians there per flight why do you assume people in your profession who work hard every day to try and treat people who are troubled who need help our our blind the technicians posted hello as opposed to a polling the Hippocratic oath. hero you do not realize just how many mental health professionals are eager to speak up and the APA placed a chilling effect on the entire profession that's why I saved your profession for bass they saved your profession because I tell you why I think that in the reason is because people who need mental health I assume supporter input or whatever the situation is behavioral issues and so forth they don't want to go to somebody who's going to go on TV and then start trashing a politician because she concludes from around Ross vast experience hold on now in examining rallies that the present a United well me ask you this are the presidents and you write about this so the president's supporters equally mentally problematic. no but they may not recognize the signs and so when they are supporting someone to their detriment I believe it's my duty to them about the situation especially if there is harm but that's not what I asked you the almost sixty three million people who voted for him and like you know he's got like eighty seven ninety percent support in the in the Republican Party are those people that have mental issues. there are. they can be vulnerable to someone who is manipulative and deceptive sitting judges be deceived by some defendants when they are. we're not asking that weighs about sixty seven million let me ask are Bernie Sanders supporters are they they mental issues as a whole. I don't want to keep bringing up other people I've never because I'm exposing you know you're very you're very political even though I pretend not to I have never been concerned about I've never been medically concerned about other political so that's my point isn't it our well only I mean you're confusing a medical judgment for the political position no actually you are you know doctor Lee I think we've had a fair discussion here. next time you see Brian Stelter on CNN would you tell him I said hello please. and right or do you. he's a nice little cell and if you if you want to come back anytime you want to come back fair enough. I wanted to when we come back if we can actually have a conversation and not a fight it's not a fight it is it is a debate this is what makes America great number of founding principles first you're not listening to me man I'm not only listen the I read your book did you read my books have you read any of my books. I don't know from Italy I have time I will have them but I. are you I would be interested in all right please check out my latest book and freedom of the press doesn't even involve psychiatry or anything okay. okay that's a date all right thank you for your for coming on the program okay thank you all right god bless..

"Them alone Goldwater would be excluded from high positions in the field he admires most big business which would refuse to appoint him to a high corporate post in the military which would deny him access to top security material Mr Goldwater's case is not one of an isolated mental incident nor is the question merely whether or not he suffers from mental illness like physical sickness mental illness can be a variety of totally different afflictions some of which would have no significant bearing on the president's Mr go water so this is not just an emotional ma'ale adjustment or a mild neurosis all right queerness has emphatically stated by many of the leading psychiatrists in this country the pattern of his behavior is ominous from a sadistic child pranks childhood pranks to school practice cruel practical jokes today from is nervous breakdowns under pressure in his twenties to his present day would draws an escapade sometime a crisis from his obsessive preoccupation with firearms in his youth two is present fantasies about brand brandishing nuclear weapons to scares enemies premise conviction that he surrounded by deadly enemies at home whether Reuther Rockefeller the American press or someone is out to kill him to his belief that every Russian ballerina is a spy Goldwater shows unmistakable symptoms of paranoia the paranoiac noise has delusions of persecution many areas he is completely divorced from reality it's a picture of the world which Fitch's needs a world in which he and a few faithful are the good guys and all the other bad guys have to be annihilated he sees enemies everywhere trust no one completely and suspects even his closest friends of betraying him is rigid and dogmatic in his beliefs I cannot tolerate ambiguities is obstinate uncompromising rebellious not for the sake of principle but for fear that a show of imagine weakness or permit is enemies to take advantage of them is willing to pay with his own life and with the lives of others in order to prove that he is a is fearless and strong clearly paranoia is not just any mental disease and a leader who commands the most powerful nation in the most destructive arsenal in history it constitutes nothing short of mortal danger to mankind a little over thirty years ago a paranoid with a charismatic effect on his audience is supported by an extremist highly patriotic group was democratically elected to the highest executive position in the government of this country his name was Adolf Hitler I know our doctor Lee get some of our ideas is it possible to determine conclusively without a psychiatric interview on the basis of what is known about him when the Gulf waters paranoid the life and actions of a presidential candidate so completely exposed through TV through press interviews and both with himself and with members of his family and through the endless study of us passed by friends and enemies that a comprehensive psychiatric portrait definitely does emerge doesn't that sound like doctor lady you Mister minister but one need not subscribe to psychiatric theories to believe that something is emotionally disturbed any man who decide who can describe Russia as a giant as a giant of a man maybe six feet ten inches tall weighing two hundred seventy five pounds trim and hard as nails with one swipe of his hand could render me well finished the giant never bother me because I had in my possession a pistol and one need not know the name of Freud in order to wonder whether a man who constantly and compulsively must prove his daring a masculinity is a man fit the lead in fact the lead America and the world in this day of the bomb all one has to do is look at the record the life record of Barry Goldwater today to record compiled mostly by his friends and admires it speaks for itself this is just the beginning it is a horrendous attack on them it goes on page after page after page now what they do in the end of this publication is they have comments from psychiatrists they sought out so I can actually send a survey to that some twelve thousand psychiatrists at about twelve hundred responded one thousand one hundred and eighty nine and they had very very nasty comments your questionnaire cannot really be answered because whatever psychopathology call water may have is not that overt the one can make a diagnosis by merely observing him on TV or reading what he writes in recent years the American voter has demanded a receipt many details about the illnesses of presidents that is taken these factors into consideration like manner I believe such information should also be made available about senator Goldwater's illnesses I've been a registered Republican since I was able to vote but I'm not be able to vote for Barry Goldwater it's my professional opinion he's emotionally too unstable to guide the destiny of this nation because of his past history background an ambivalent attitude I do not believe Barry Goldwater is psychologically fit the service press the United States Marine difference different comments seems unaware of some aspects of reality the Russians have the bomb to in the states rights are usually a cover up for bigots on and on and on the water was furious absolutely furious this was a contemptible temple bar attack on him he was being attacked by Democrats by commercials with Mel B. J. with the atomic bomb and all the rest so we sue the publisher and the magazine magazine was called fact the publisher again Raskin's bear anyone I think you want like a hundred twenty five or a hundred fifty thousand dollars whatever works in the magazine had to fold in this case was grandfathered in before it was a selected with the your times versus Solomon decision in one this is how you hold the media to account judges and juries know how to handle frivolous lawsuits they do it every day every walk of life every kind of case criminal and civil there's no reason to immunize an example people who work for media corporations from libel suits there's no reason to have such a high bar that they're really impossible to win given the preposterous standard that the Supreme Court is put in place and I believe this is been very very damaging to freedom of the speech even with the press I'll be right back then X. ten WTVN.

Mueller Won't Say It, but Trump Clearly Obstructed Justice

"Just moments away from round two former special counsel Robert Muller taking questions from lawmakers this time on the intelligence committee we are just moments away from that committee hearing to convene on with a K. G. as Ron Owens cages John Ross manning KGO as Pat Thurston and I wanted to bring up something before we go back to the committee obstruction of justice and the argument by some that well he wasn't successful so it's not a crime zero that was clearly laid out you know I'm all or answering yeah opposite that obstruction of justice is still a crime even after he was unsuccessful let me point out the Republicans keep raising this issue of underlying crime Richard Nixon did not order order the Watergate break in Richard Nixon ultimately fell because of a cover up of the argument that is being made as the president attempted to obstruct and cover up by the way a Dorian just sent me an email I feel I'm very informed I haven't missed a beat about trump I just hope the next election legitimately removes them I would prefer impeachment talk about a guy in the middle there it is the way I saw the it just south of the Hank Johnson from fifteen hundred on each side yeah the problems have been like Barry Goldwater said you know carpet off letter flowed out of the ocean yeah as to what Pat thirst and said earlier you don't you said you're more interested in hearing the questioning from the intelligence committee because they're going to focus on the Russia meddling which is important and multi even stated that was the most important thing that Americans the smaller all hearing give the reason yeah right well I is that the reason well this afternoon yeah I will be put on the spot and I think that one of the the reason that I want this more so we've talked a lot and I think the American people have been exposed a lot to the questions about obstruction although witness tampering with something that Miller also said occurred but the the rush investigation people just passed through the first part of this because there wasn't he did state that he there was insufficient evidence to prove a criminal conspiracy there was so much more there there's so much in there about the actual collusion the cooperation that was taking place the soliciting of information that was coming from the trump campaign there was so much in there and it didn't in his in his opinion rise to the level of a criminal conspiracy for which he could be charged but there's an awful lot in there that would indicate it either to my mind on ethical behavior corrupt behavior of behavior that was certainly collusion even if it didn't rise to that level and so I'm anxious for them to get that information out so that the American public here's an interesting you say that because it was inconclusive as you said but then the but then on the second part of the mall the report it really zeros in on the it was not structured as Jolla's so this seems like there's more there because it was more complicated it was mainly in lab so that whether it succeeds or not that's ridiculous I mean if up obstruction of justice is what you do if you want to file for impeachment the question of whether the Russians coopted the election influence the election is a critical question and I want to remind you the president of the United States to this day denies that the Russians influence the election and the president was asked if he trusted of the word of Latimer putting or American intelligence agencies and I also want to remind you that there is an active report this morning that Dan coats who is the DCI may be removed and who was the president consulting with on that but Devin newness so there's a lot there are a lot of layers former Republican has that's right there are a lot of layers here now but all right people need to keep their eye on one ball the Russians interfered in the American election there is no question about that even in addition to that John it's that the Russian interference would not have possibly been as extensive or as successful as it was without the cooperation of the trump campaign format once approached right once approached you know had day immediately gone to the FBI some of these efforts could have been thwarted some of this information could potentially have been made public the American people could have been aware so this I think also goes to a potential impeachment are they load are they starting to get in yeah Adam shooter yeah Schiff is taking his seat I thought it was interesting congressman Tom McClintock from the Sacramento area had an interesting way to sum up Muller's report and I want to play that for you here although weak up not you can't put it up okay never I was gonna try and play for my own computer and that's not going to be working but I talked about that Robert Muller ringing the doorbell and then dropping his report on fire and running away so I thought it was a great way to describe it no matter what side you're on yeah I know it's it's to the biggest of the four hundred plus pages into that run on hers needs to do something right exactly and that's coming from a Republican and it's it's really important to realize that fact now I'm looking at the at the screen and we're going to bring you the sound but Adam Schiff is about to call together the Senate of the house intelligence committee and this will focus on the question of collusion cooperation Russian interference in the election and I will be fascinated by how the president tweets in response to what we are going to hear over the next several hours it is going to be an awful lot that he's not going to answer in this regard to because in addition to the Russians there were a number of other people who were not indicted and so those are individuals that the justice department has told him he should not be talking about including you know the don junior and I can't remove us but there are other people who are Erik Hicks was brought up in the last one though when he responded to that request just last week hope picks was subpoenaed refused to comply with a subpoena right because she lied well but whatever the reason the president extended executive what he it's not exactly a privilege she center it's some new myth right about executive authority to prevent her from testifying yes and let me tell you the committee was not happy about that the Democrats anyway well what if thirty four I think was a thirty four Russians that were indicted I'm not more than two dozen what yeah thirty by two thousand thirty six thirty seven I mean yeah thirty seven seven entitled and from big did more than two dozen indicted Russian right you know no matter what the Russians are going to interfere with this next election to I'm sure they already on that what what we didn't hear they call John show every night signal right it just goes all the way to Russia what we didn't hear it was the voice of errands that plea is the assistant special counseling you may this afternoon because I believe that he is going to be sworn beings at least that's the anywhere but wasn't enough for I was hearing this wasn't that Miller may yes trump is really mad about that that was one of the things he also tweeted about was the fact that they were going to allow him to even be in the hearing he said it was never agreed that Robert Muller could use one never Trumper lawyers help with his answers Donald Trump has no right at all talking about agreement but he says it was specifically not agree to and I would never have agreed to it wasn't matter what he says why I think he needs to agree to it because the president of the United States this president of United States seems to have an over inflated view of the power of the president and certainly when you consider three co equal branch of government as angry as the president may be at the Congress and the judiciary he can't interfere it's interesting that what was not gotten into Israeli why Mahler didn't somehow insist that he get the testimony from a president trump himself right nobody asked why did why I mean that resonate very basic question right now and I think he would have said no but I'd like to get that he wouldn't answer but I would like to get that on the red white that may still be asked let me remind you the fundamental question the subpoena was the meeting in trump tower which goes to the heart of what we're going to do in the Senate and the house intelligence committee so that may yet come up in short we are going to be riveted for the next two hours plus to the testimony before the house intelligence were you guys surprised that the Republicans are using as an argument the fact that Muller could not indict a sitting president as department of justice policy in kind of twisting that into an argument that he didn't do his job let's hear from congressman Jim Jordan who try to contrast the charging decisions between members of the campaign and the president charge regains for false statements you charge Paul metaphor for false statements charge Michael Cullen with false statements you charge Michael Flynn a three star general was false statements but the guy who puts the countries to this whole saga starts at all for three years we live this now he lies and you guys don't charge and I'm curious as to why well I can't get into it and and it's obvious I think if we can't get into charging decisions that wasn't about trump if I'm pretty sure is that was not about Donald Trump that was about that professor who he who he asserted Jordan asserted was the beginning of all of this that it was the professor who gave the information about the top the list who then relayed the information right to the an Australian yeah so it wasn't about that but they did that was it did seem to be part of their strategy that they would twist the idea of the LC a memo that would not that Muller cited that would not allow him to indict and you know John I don't know if we have time for this but you know I've talked about this extensively that LC memo really is not a it's not to the constitution it's not the law and it's not just a policy just says that the president cannot be indicted it doesn't say in the about when it's not I don't know if it's not finding do you understand I I can make the argument I it's an LLC opinions about any informed playing which which the Attorney General watered enforced both Attorney General spot one of error the deputy Attorney General Mister Reznor signed it and so that's the problem it was an impediment which well I think is wrong I think it's wrong in law I do too John I do too and and you know I think when you look at what happened with the Bill Clinton and the independent counsel there's a Ken Starr he certainly did divide by that understand if you read Lee on shore skis book which is well worth reading he talks about why he did what he did and then remember that during the Clinton scandal in in two thousand actually the justice department simply reinforce reinforce that but let me also point out that two days before he left office Bill Clinton admitted that he obstructed justice that he'd committed perjury and his fine if you will was that he was disbarred in Arkansas disbarred before the Supreme Court had to pay Paula jones' legal expenses and he did it Bill Clinton did it because he was told if he didn't the minute he left the inaugural platform he would be indicted so for Bill Clinton it was a matter of of saving his frankly thank god that they'll bring up hope picks again in this discussion because the whole thing about hope Hicks was because she was involved in these emails that were related to the trump tower midday cations Miller is coming in a lot less so okay gotcha yeah we we are yeah just about to begin the second hearing with Robert Muller just moments away Robert Muller has just walked into the committee hearing

"goldwater" Discussed on Newsradio 970 WFLA

"Movies as so-called blue room or hangar. Eighteen is the rumored spot where the goodies are stashed and the alien bodies are kept on ice. There was even a movie that focused entirely on this. And here's a little clip. So what you're saying to me general is that we have a flying saucer in our possession. Yes. Fantastic. Even consider that. It's their investigation team. What is it mostly people? Yes. All about the satellite. Everything that happened up there. There's no way to keep them out of it. Signs. It's their best fast on this fine. Obviously with the right people. This is still all speculation. We get inside that thing. And guess what the hell it is whatever it is. We've got one what wasn't moving to an air force base in Texas hangar. Eighteen. Well in the movie it was in Texas. But as far as we know in real life, if it's real it was in Ohio, Dayton, Ohio Wright Patterson air force base. Ray the story is that Senator Barry Goldwater tried to gain access to the room. He had his constituents who are pestering 'em. Hey, can you find out about these rumors about crashed saucers and alien bodies? And he tried to get in and despite his power and influence and having security clearances. He was told no what do you know about that? Well, let's I distinguish between the blue room, which is reputedly in the basement of the foreign technology division and the other entity known as hangar eighteen so I'll adjust Barry Goldwater thing. I I. Yeah. I think at the time Barry Goldwater was chairman of the appropriations committee and therefore controlled the purse strings for the military. So he's a very powerful person and a very powerful position. And he contacted the air force chief of staff at the time who I believe was general Curtis LeMay, and he said, hey, you know, butting up to him because he was a a Major General himself at one time. I'd like to go see the stuff, you know, I want to put my fingers on it. And of course, she was I guess he knew LeMay very well. And it was the only time we may got angry with him. And he said don't ever. Ask me again, you can't see. So that's shutout Senator Goldwater. But if you think about it, there's always one overriding thing, it doesn't matter who you are what your power is. What your rank is what your security clearance says the only thing that matters at the end of the day is do you have a need to know?.

"goldwater" Discussed on Behind the Bastards

"On board with JFK in this election. Now, Roger stone claims that his personal political ideology took a rightward turn for the first time at age eleven when he read bury gold waters, the conscience of a conservative very Goldwater for those of you who don't know was the kind of the Trump before Trump. I think he was a better at appealing to like intellectual conservatives than Donald Trump was, but he, you know, the reason that like you're not supposed to a psychiatrist psychoanalyze a presidential candidates called the Goldwater rule because like so many people thought he was crazy when he's running. So this guy's book is what like lights a spark. In. Roger stone's brain at age eleven we next year. He started volunteering or the Goldwater campaign at age twelve so he's like a very young volunteer for this hard right presidential candidate. And while he's doing all that he comes across a book called a Texan looks at Linden. Now, this book was self published by self-described ultra conservative named J F at Haley Haley argues that LBJ was a lifelong criminal and a murderer. Roger stone would go under write his own book about LBJ's role in the Kennedy assassination accusing the former president of at least eight murders. She says, oh, yeah. Yeah. It's it's a nutso book. Not that. I don't think LBJ had some people murdered because he was LBJ. He definitely did. But this is why you see the start of like two things that are going to be through lines. And Roger stone's live here. One of them is of course, hard right conservatism. And one of them is really likes conspiracy theories, which is probably how he's gonna wind up in the info wars orbit a little later in the story. So young Roger spent a lot of his childhood alone in reading this period of time. Seems to have crystallized the ideology that would carry him through to the rest of his life quote from Roger will you have to understand. There were no kids my age, male or female for twenty five miles. I suppose it could have thrown a football with my dad, but my old man left at five AM and came back at nine pm, but he ate his supper and felt a bed and he was covered with grease from head to foot and he never complained a day in his life. You have to amuse yourself is the way Roger tells a story and kind of how he presents his show, Americana. Yeah. Yeah. So it is my dad never talked to me because he was working all the time. And this is good. He never complain that he didn't have time to raise a child. How can you tell that story? And not be like, I me that's not a healthy culture mean that's not ideal. Like anyway, stone amused himself by engaging in politics as often as possible, he volunteered for the Goldwater campaign at age twelve as I said, but he also stayed active in his schools political process near the New York Times as a junior then vice president of his northern Westchester high school. He manipulated the ouster of the president and his own succession running for reelection. As a senior I left nothing to chance. He said, I built alliances and put all my serious challengers on my ticket than I recruited the most unpopular guy in the school to run against me. You think that's mean? No, that's smart. So yeah, when he was thirteen Roger stone's started taking the train into New York City on weekends to volunteer for the mayoral campaign of William F, Buckley junior that campaign did not work out. But the experience of traveling from small town America into its largest city to work in politics had an impact on young Roger as well. Quote. The key thing I remember about Louis borough has small hometown is that it was just across the border from new Canaan so early on. I saw myself as living in a kind of bridge between two cultures the white working class and the white upper class. Very specific about white there. Yeah. Yeah. Now stone believed both groups fundamentally hated the government. So they were natural bedfellows. Should all be able to get on board of this? Whether or not we're poor or rich white people that white people is pretty clearly sure. Angling towards now nineteen seventy stone senior Europe high school. He attended the Connecticut state young Republican convention, the younger publicans were more conservative than the mainstream of the party at that time. They're trying to push the party further to the right Roger hadn't been able to afford to book a hotel room for his trip. So he'd showed up just sort of assuming he could meet someone and convince them to take care of it stones best friend at the time guy named Dolan introduced him to another teenage young Republican named Paul Manafort. Yeah.
