Graduation doesn't take four years. He could do it in like a fair. Abraham like harvard extension school and then like instantly become them.

I had to put pond when you were talking about Sarah going to the harvard extension school in wearing a harvard sweatshirt 'cause i was taking classes at harvard extension school and specifically sell harvard extensions. We'll geared think so that people don't pretend they went to harvard actually went to the extension school So that was really the choice by her. Yeah he got interested in touch has to consent odd.

All of the shirts on the sweatshirts had the exact same upper half. It's the exact same harvard font. The exact same harvard crest and underneath the exact same fought is either divinity school sara of design business school extension school. And they're all forty four ninety eight.

And i want to experiment different things at the moment just regular diet is working perfectly for me member. We said faira. Abraham was going to harvard. She went to the harvard extension school because she wanted to get guess. Why so she hated. It sucks the reason. I want to talk about it because it's funny and there's audio clips. Because she was stopped by. Tmz obviously like seems like she called tmz and was like. Hey i'll talk to you. Want this curb at nine. Fifteen m. I'll be in my harvard sweatshirt and she is. She's complaining about harvard in her harvard sweatshirt and she's like she calls them like emotionally abusive. She says that the teachers were you know. She allegedly misconduct on the part of the teachers. But based on what. I can tell her. Problem is this. She sign up for these classes. A lot of them are done resume. Obviously because it's twenty twenty one and one of them. Was this creative writing class that you wanted to take. And she even posted the email in her yelp review of harvard extension school. She gave harvard one star. By the way in case you were wondering one star one. I think even post you can't give zero right. No you can't zero. And so she. I'm obsessed with this post so she complains about harvard. And it's sort of all over the place and you don't really understand it but then when you look at the actual email that the professor sent her. I sort of cited i kind of team professor on it because the professor seems to be saying like. I think you should leave this class. Because you're gonna do badly like you need to take other classes before you take this. You're not really ready for this. And maybe that's not the professors place. Maybe you should just let the student take it and fail. Here's my question but you were in like undergrad. Harvard or like. I just feel like harvard extension. You're paid do it. Just let them do it. And also what's the great even four. Why are we even grading this. Not to be whatever again. I don't really know how this works but like shouldn't this be like a pass fail. Situation issue was gonna fail it or maybe they have a few more standards than than we're thinking about kind of the higher education extended learning scheme that you kind of see with with lots of colleges where they're like. Take this take a class which is great like take a class. But i don't know why it's great it like grading for class kind of has this implication that you're going to do something when that right. Oh i'm gonna get my mba. And then i have it. I have to pass a test. Or i'm going to like use this to get this thing or use it but it's like no one's asking you about your grades when you have a job when you when the when you graduate school. No one's like how'd you do in like econ. You're if you're in like stem if you're in like scienc- things they wanna know things like this. But like i mean i'm sure some will say oh they do but whatever or a lawyer but so that's why i wonder what she even enrolled in for the teacher to write back and say. Hey you're gonna fail this. 'cause teachers do i think some haven't you told me it's like you took one class. And he was like. Why aren't you taking. This past fail told this story to me before. Oh yeah no i was taking. I love. I took a french class. And i was a junior in college and i had taken all of my friends requirements. Like i didn't need any more for language requirements. But i was like. I'm going to get better at this. And so i took a like a french writing class and it was four. Upper class was for french majors. And i don't know the my teacher might have me a blythe danner. I remember that. I really liked her. And so i went and there were like twelve. People in this class to humongous state. School like every class is huge. This is one of those small ones. it was intimately kind of workshop class and within a couple of weeks. I got a paperback that literally had some version of seamy. Perhaps in french and class and friends. Well i'm telling you. I had to drop the class. I don't know i. So i i'm telling you i have no clue. I went up to her afterwards. She was extremely worried for me. And i was like. Hey what's up. And she was like. Hey robert and You know just you know this not. I'm worried about you. Know how you did on this one course on this one assignment and i was like i gotta do better. And she's like i just. It's just worrying french major. You need to be doing better at this point. And i was like wait. I'm not a french major and she goes. You're not a french major. And i said no and she goes. What are you doing in this class was like. I don't know. I just like french and she was like well. I strongly urge you to either take this pass fail. There was like deadline to make change it to pass fail. Yeah it was like if you don't change to pass fail in the next week or so we're gonna take grade. She was like you're not going to do well in this class. I can guarantee it. And i was like i'm just going to drop it. And she was like okay. Thanks bye and i never saw. I just dropped so discouraging. Well i'd like. If i understood the reason i was thinking about it reading this email from the professor to fair abraham. And like you're right with me. It was like it really would have affected my gpa. I'm paying for classes like it's it's many many months. You know my time and money are better spent elsewhere but the teacher sent her this email which fair shared on her review. I urge you to drop this course. Now while it's still easy to make a change in your schedule instead enroll in a kind of a lower level class because she says which would give you additional practice with reading and writing at a college level you may elect to stay this course and i'll do my best to support you if you do. But it's important to know that if it becomes clear that students lack of preparation is impeding the progress of the course. That student can be subject to exclusion at that point. Of course changer. Tuition refund would not be possible and like she says. Please let me know if you have any more questions. She's basically watching out for fares money. And i get it paid for this but you took a class. It's too hard for you. Why are you taking this class. And she says you won't be able to get a refund after this particular date at all reminded me of blythe danner blythe danner telling me like sweet. Get out of this. You have to say anything. I thought this was a scam before. And now i think it's not a scam but i mean the oh my god how did not click this before lindsay. I'm thinking all right. Let me tell you something. This is not fair. Abraham's first one star review on yelp. No it's not are you. Oh my god how many she got you live for money. Twenty has she made more than a one star review She's made a couple july but most of them are one star. July twenty one. Eight can't trust these european.

I would guess that if there is any danger involved at probably comes in more along with the shock raw stuff where we start to talk more about body in health then here so to okay. I don't even know giving it to instead of a one. That's what my gut says and listening inter knowing because you're in knowing is like how you like really know things that certainly not just like your suspicions it's an actual real thing that you should just listen to and then stop thinking okay. I'll save four. Oh okay because there was even though it was pretty gentle. There was the upsell at the end and i just feel like her confidence could easily win a lot of people over where they would give her a lot of those wins for things she took credit for and then take some of her statements where she's giving advice that kind of could guide the future in terms of having children. Or were you move or anything like that. Like i think we've become really attentive on those transfers information and how they happen and when they happen i think for a lot of people like their lives could be really affected by this maybe mostly positive but just that level of control makes me a little uncomfortable. Yeah that's totally fair again. The gentle up sell but still upsell into more services and continued advice and stuff so that makes sense. Well what would you give this on a pocket during their value. Where one is something. Not very parker draining like getting curly fries and a coke. Fred sixty two but during happy hour of that so cheap. Yeah there was a really good deal and then ten is something extremely pocket training like you go to theme park. It's called whole ville and all that happens. Is you pay a thousand dollars center. And then they're like here is a shovel. Dig some holes and then you do. And then they're like. Ooh that whole was too deep now. You're getting fined and by the time you leave you've spent sixteen hundred and thirty dollars. Oh dig holes and you're exhausted and they're no water fountain and now i'm like metaphorically and physically in the whole financially in the whole yeah. Oh that's awful yeah. One hundred fifty dollars was really expensive for yes. My conversation ended up being a little under thirty five minutes. Who yeah two days from your birthday do birthday. No discount hundred fifty bucks. That's a lot. Yeah and then we've already mentioned the upsell to the three hundred fifty dollars initial session of what's going to become more regularly occurring breadwinner for her. I feel like i'll give this an eight. Oh that's what i was thinking. Oh my god we must have been friends for just like generations ago. I bet we died together died together time or families probably tribes. Oh my god. We're so noble. Well what would you give this on a scale. Where one is something. Not very creepy. You watch an episode of the love boat and then you go to sleep next to your love whereas ten is something very creepy okay. This was a real dream. That i had recently that i woke up from in a panic and it's tied to the secret spaces thing so i was helping my friend rianne a- move from a house and it was one of these upstairs spaces that i recognize like. Oh wow you've been in other dreams this space and we were just making a final check to make sure. Did we clear everything out. So we're about to leave the room and all of a sudden in the corner. There's a dark figure that turns around. And i see like just as super white paleface with a exaggerated long pointy nose. The noses grew from despicable me. Not important but then that makes this a little more comical than it felt to me but like this turn around. And i realized that i saw this figure and another figure that turned around at that moment in the corner lurking and i like i just understood that i wasn't supposed to have seen them and they were waiting for us to leave because they'd been in the house all along. Oh my god. That's scared. And i was immediately sense with this and so they bolted out of the room so i went running after them and like i got outside and i was like frozen in place and i could just see them like escape where i couldn't see them go and then the dream ended and i was like freaked out and sweaty my god. Yeah that's nothing approaching that. But i would say qualifies especially telling me stuff like that. I worked somewhere where. I was sexually abused in some way. Oh yeah four okay. There's something about just like her. Not trying at all for the ambiance in the place lady in a gap shirt sitting sitting at a desk. And i'm in like a cheap plastic chair that doesn't quite give you that creepy factor but if you break down the parts. It's certainly creepy right. Yeah that's a good point. Because i'm almost feeling like i wish she had done more diligence to drive up the craziness value. Yeah yeah. why isn't this. Croupier weird music lady. Yeah we're talking about your previous lives. That's inherently creepy that you're in this like edible state where you're sort of affected by the fates in ways you can't control in your tied to this story telling were repeatedly dying young explosions and choking at the hands of your love and dying in water is so all of that is creepy. But you're right like she could of made some effort ambiance to match that so if anything that drove it back also give it a five. I'd say rates on the creepiest cal for sure. What about hot drinks thumbs up down. No hot drinks did have a nice soda and beer over fred's but she had nothing to do with that. So just the thumbs down thumbs down definitely a way that she could improve her whole thing yacht for hot drinks. I wanna recline well. I'm thinking about my past. Lives should have a hot drink. I'll sit up to drink it though. Exactly maybe a crimson rug. And i would like to smell incense instead of tobacco fair. Yeah all fair points. I think that's mostly it. I'm glad you thought of this. Because i've been wanting to learn more about my past lives for a while. Maybe once we're back to normal we can do some of the other things we've been thinking about but this was fun. I i did enjoy. The conversation was a surprise for our week for sure before we go. I want to mention to things that i want to promote. One is chris. Steadman's new podcast. it's four episodes. it's called unread. it's from iheartradio. Yours truly plays a pretty substantial role in it can also. It's very sweet. It's about a friend of his. Who died by suicide and sent chris like time email just before his up but with some sort of bread crumbs that then chris follows afterward want and i helped him do that. It's very moving very sweet story and our listeners. May remember chris from our car series appear to one of our episodes talking about that and i think he's also on stage with us in minneapolis. Live show. yeah yeah. He's wonderful and so is the show and then also harvard extension school has a new ish class called pseudoscience and mental health. That's taught by dr. cynthia myers berg.

I know I went there may those demands in a policy paper released this week, The organization called on Local authorities to keep school campus is closed when the semester begins on August 18th. What does the union wants in order to reopen? Well. They want sequestration of students in small groups throughout the school day, providing students with masks and other forms of protective equipment, redesigning school layout in order to facilitate social distancing, But not just that. I want police to be defunded. What does that have to do with anything? The answer is nothing. They're just using this as a club to wield against the citizenry. We won't let you bring your kids to school. Almost you defund. The cops is a weird one. The union says the police violence is quote a leading cause of death and trauma for black people and is a serious public health and moral issue. A document calls on authorities would shift the astronomical amount of money devoted to policing to education and other essential needs, such as housing and public health. I don't want to come back to school, so why should we be giving you extra money? Privately operated publicly funded charter schools should also be put out of business, according to these public school unions. Why it's almost as though they're using the pandemic as a club to beat the living hell out of all their political opponents.

"Ukraine I for one as individual have concerns about that but there's really no issue here. unbelievable that was Steve the new chin by the way good afternoon I'm Pat Thurston I have a guest joining us he is Tom Nichols any road of peace recently that's headline if this isn't impeachable nothing is it was published in the Atlantic and before we bring Tom on looked just just let me tell you a little bit about this guy first of all he is an author his most recent book is the death of expertise the campaign against established knowledge and why it matters I haven't read it I intend to it sounds fascinating Tom's also a professor at the Naval War College and at the Harvard extension school he's an adjunct professor at the U. S. Air Force school of strategic FOR studies senior associate at the Carnegie council on ethics and international affairs in New York City a fellow of the international history institute of Boston University he's also a senior fellow the Graham center for contemporary international history at the university of Toronto he was previously a fellow at the center for strategic and International Studies in Washington DC there's more it goes on and on and on what he has in his background but of course the most important is that he was he played in the nineteen ninety four tournament of champions on jeopardy he is a five time undefeated jeopardy champion and he joins has found the Bathurst and show Tom thanks for being here. thanks for that and I I was kidding of course about sure jeopardy success although it is a dog on notable I'm so glad you wrote this piece that this isn't impeachable nothing is what people are saying right now people who are calling into. is that we're jumping the gun that it's too soon to say that what trump did in this most recent thing with with Ukraine with the president of Ukraine that this is an impeachable offense that we don't have enough information what are your thoughts on that. first I should say that I don't represent any. including the doesn't. I'm sorry to interrupt you but we're having difficulty understanding your your phone's kind of fading in and out kit can we try again yeah sure good trader you were saying that it was it's a it's a political process not a legal one I believe right and that it's pretty much what Congress thinks it is in terms of the president's day our office. the other thing that's really important here is yeah you know. I think the article if these charges are true if this actually happened and I think that's always important to give the benefit of the doubt the only problem here is that the president soldiers already we don't need a whistle blower complaint we don't need a transcript the president himself has already in the past twenty four hours yes didn't forget what he said yeah we talk about corruption we talked about by you know that if there's nothing wrong with that today he practically admitted that to a pretty quick quote a quid pro quo when he said you don't want to give money to people whatever corruption problems so yeah course I brought it up here's the question for people who would disagree with the peace is it appropriate for the president of the United States ask foreign governments to place an American citizen in legal jeopardy for his own political purposes. and if if that's acceptable then this is a country that but we really change the country because that I think in any other university as I say the peace George Bush or Rocco barber booklet that done that they have been chase process you cannot use the power it would be almost unshakable power of the presidency export policy to see if you can pressure for leaders to put your political opponents in the pokey it's just it's it's simply wrong it's an abuse of power and I I'm I'm kind of surprised at how we even have to have this discussion because to me it is so self evidently wrong an impeachable that well that's why I wrote the piece because I was just done that. did it nothing better to do it let me tell you why I think we have to have this conversation the reason to me is that you know this president if he were simply wrote if he was acting on his own that would be one thing he's not I mean he is being aided and abetted in so many of the things that he does and and cover up and spin and denial and you know re directing out where the actual act accusations of the guilt should be by members of the G. O. P. especially within the Senate and also by the Attorney General of the United States and my understanding is that we've had a pretty good history with attorneys general that they tend to be removed from White House control and act fairly independently in trying to administer justice that is not what's going on right now bill Barr has been running interference for the president of the United States anti since he took office I mean they can even charge somebody with contempt of Congress because it is the DOJ that would convict would prosecute such a thing and they will not do it people who are not complying with subpoenas there's very little they can do because the department of justice is not backing them up so doesn't this put us in a rather unique position is that that one of the reasons we have to have this discussion not one man going rogue this is a man who's being aided and abetted by a political party and by the pin the people that he appointed who are just carrying his water and I think it's dangerous. well who could imagine that we reach a point where were all nostalgic for the even handed rectitude of Jeff sessions I know. so I can you know and yet here we are and I say this as somebody Michael former Republican I mean I was Republican for thirty three years I worked for a Republican senator back in the nineties and you know I I left the party over this I I would argue that bill bars the most dangerous man in the United States government not not least because of the position he occupies well because unlike the president and his advisers he's actually competent and he knows what he's doing yes in fact he knows exactly what he's doing and I think that that yeah as you say that's a that's a problem that the entire Republican Party has basically come become the vehicle of a cult of personality meant to support the president but when it comes to political remedy met the president still sets at the top of this organization and this Congress is going to demand accountability there's only one way to do it and that is through the impeachment of the president since obviously you can indict a sitting president the president is going to claim broad powers as the chief executive by the way powers I think he has under article two but I don't think that those article two powers extend to abusing his power as the representatives of the people of the United States to arm twist a foreign leader into trying to open an investigation into his political opponents purely because it suits his personal political vendettas he's coming out and saying things like under article two I can do whatever I want there are supporters of his within the GOP including Rudy Giuliani the president himself but other members of the GOP who are saying that the if the president does it it can't be against the law I mean it's reminiscent of Richard Nixon when he was talking with David frost and they're saying you cannot criminally investigated president which I think is complete nonsense even Robert Muller in his report said you can investigate but Robert Muller stood by the office of legal counsel opinion that you could not indict but the investigation was an important asked. fact of them yet it does the whole argument is nonsense about the president's interpretation of article two there's nothing in the constitution that says that any branch of the government can do whatever it wants whenever they feel like it this is I mean the president I said this for two and a half years the president doesn't understand the constitution of understands our job I think that the guy I have always firmly believe the president never intended to what the selection you was a surprise but he also when the voters you know the more kind of work in on the joke and now he's in over his head and so he makes this up it goes along about what his constitutional powers are the reason that we have separated branches of government with separate electoral mandates and separate articles the constitution is precisely because no one are. the government can do whatever it wants and you know that that's the problem is the people that are big proponents of that Terry on either no better and are lying which is in the case of a lot of senior members of the Republican Party or they just never read the constitution and they just assume that whatever president says is true and they're going along with it but there is no constitutional theory in the world that says that you know article to invest the president with you know eat in here real power you know what thank you for head of the galactic empire is not. yeah either that is our debate along with everybody yeah well that's what I'd like to thank the frustration that a lot of people have and I count myself among them is that Jerry Nadler whose heading that house Judiciary Committee he's the chairman he has said that they are conducting an impeachment inquiry which you know generally speaking well always I guess you do the inquiry before you issue the articles of impeachment before goes to the full house it has to come out of the Judiciary Committee I mean this is it but nobody's cooperating they're not responding to subpoenas it makes this a foot dragging annoying it's annoying the American people some people say that you can't get anything else done if you're focusing on this impeachment do you think that maybe they need to just go ahead and write up the articles as they see it and begin to present the evidence before the full house so that they can pass it on to the Senate for the trial or should Jerry now there continue plodding along the way he is they need to start holding serve people and content to make it stick how did they do that if they don't get the cooperation from bill Barr. well at some point they may have to resort to inherit can jump but you know that the the problem is that when if you like if you wouldn't mind and to be like Corey Lewandowski walk all over you yeah and interrupt you when you're the chairman of the Judiciary Committee and you know you there's a real question about how serious you are I think the problem is the Democrats keep waiting for permission from the public they keep waiting for the poor. paper today it's okay to find the person that died with the impeachment as a Porter number that when the impeachment proceedings that Richard against Richard Nixon began only nineteen percent of the public was in favor of removing that. that didn't hit fifty percent until this the late summer of nineteen seventy four. this is a time for leadership I also think at some point consequences be damned you do your constitutional do you exercise your duty for the constitution as a sworn officer but our government you just do it but. out by the fact that a lot of their new majority comes from swing districts and they don't want to lose that majority two years and a half I personally don't think at this point that should matter but I also think it's matter politics a ball happened I I don't think that they're in that much danger yeah I he said something and I wrote that you wrote it down and I'm going to continue to repeat it that the Democrats right now are waiting for permission from the public and that's not what we elected them to do they have a constitutional duty and they need to start doing their duty and if that takes some backbone and some strength and if they think that it's gonna somehow jeopardize them politically so be it that's the job that they were hired to do and they need to start pursuing it and I'd like to see Republicans jump aboard because they're an awful lot of Republicans who know better and they would like you said if it were another president if it were Barack Obama who was doing this sort of thing they wouldn't hesitate to call for his impeachment well party should be down to party shouldn't matter at all here it has to do with what's right it has to do with abuse of power it has to do in some cases with criminality. well and and and Tom thank you I I'm going to read your book and when I read your book I'd like to have you come back on so we can talk about it it sounds absolutely fascinating and thank you for your piece it's available at the Atlantic dot.

It was Wilfing then I loved that job. I was I was sorry to see paste up go because it was just a nice way to make some money now, then you decided to go back to school, and it might have the chronology a little bit off because you went back to school, and then we're working in back to school. But you did go to Harvard. I did and you do have a degree from Harvard. Harvard extension school you've left out a very important part of this Hillary because I might get to it. But I might be out border. So swear, I get together with Chuck. Yes. So after I left read, I was always meant check at read. I oh, that's right. I met drew through Reynolds. No. I met him through. We're gonna have a little war here. Your life. So I I met Chuck through an Italian mime and circus clown. Okay. He. No. I mean, really a real clown. Not a clown clown real, and he was hired his name was Carlo Mazzone, and he was a fantastic actor. He had worked with the peak. Hello Tayo tro in Milan and read hired him for one semester, only to teach circus tricks and Komeda del art and mime. And so I thought well, I've got to take that class at that point. I was a sophomore at read. So I signed up for the class and Chuck had already met Carlo in San Francisco. So even though Chuck had graduated from Reed he would walk down and audit the class, and that was how we met and for the first five years that we knew each other. We were just part of a big group of friends with similar interests. And then when I got back from my job at hallmark. I was always looking for a job. So I took my paste portfolio down to a radical magazine, and Chuck was the art director there, and I said, well, do you need any help? And he said as a matter of fact, I do and so he hired me as a. Faced up girl for the it was called the Oregon times we worked together and went out to lunch once in a while and one thing led to another and pretty soon, we were an item. What was that one thing that led to the other? I'm not telling. Couldn't find that my research either. Although I know that he did ask you to come back when you went to New York. Yes. So you must have had some little sort of feelings at that point. Yeah, we both had feelings at that point. I you know, I left to go to New York because I thought I've got to take a shot at this dance idea. But very soon I found out that wasn't working. And so Chuck said, we'll look into your enjoying this lettering job, and Chuck was a letter press printer, and he was doing a lot of writing about typography, and I was a calligrapher.

"And he knocked everybody off the island by being so different. So well, but the bows beans on this. I think I'm gonna. Sent lightly here and say when you have sixteen candidates, all of whom and I think the Democrats have to own a piece of this because it was obvious that Hillary Clinton was going to be the nominee two years too early. And so all of those other sixteen people were were saving all their best stuff husbanding their resources and their money to to to try and either pick off what they thought was going to be the remnant of the Trump vote or to focus it all on Hillary Clinton. And so Trump got away with a lot because nobody wants to come out really slugging hard. I mean, I found myself just yelling at the TV during the debates saying don't, you know, don't let them get away with that? Don't don't put up with this. You know, I I actually was hoping Republicans would actually walk off the stage. When Trump started doing his clown show during the during the debates, and so I think, you know. Yes. Some of it wasn't. He was a TV performer. But again, a cautionary note for the Democrats when they're fifteen or sixteen or twenty people on the stage. It is a circular firing squad. And at some point there has to be a there has to be a reckoning here of of people saying, look, I really I'm not going to be president. I need to get out of the way. Here I need to you know, we all need to row in the same direction. And I think. You know, members of congress particularly think about the last time a sitting member of the house was elected president. I mean, I think it's probably going back to the nineteenth century to get to that the early nineteenth century. So I I I'm a little concerned here that, you know, people are I think Trump is so vulnerable and they wanna raise their own issues, but it's creating a very crowded and chaotic fields and again people are exhausted by the news. So at some point, you know, they just kind of wave away, and they don't they they don't hear it anymore. I think we're engaging that happening right now. We'll just in closing Tom Nicol since you teach at the naval war college in the USA school of strategic status. Well, an important to remind people that I don't represent the good, but you do interact with people in the armed forces. And there's this perception out there that Trump and Fox News have hammered away at that this this thing called the deep state that's out to get him. And unfortunately for those who want to see the. The end of Trump it what can only wish that they would state. I know that there's not that state. And I'm show, you know, that deep state, but it's almost like we need deep state. So in terms of reckoning of what Russia has done and what Russia's continuing to do. And what they are lucky to do twenty twenty to help Trump again, do you expect some kind of reckoning? No. I think they've gotten away with it. I think they will get away with it until there's a new administration and a new national security bureaucracy, at least of the senior level of appointees. I think, you know, this is if I were Putin, I would talk this up as a win. And it's you know, I even if the president were impeached. It's win win for the Russians. They were trying to so chaos. They're trying to paralyse the US government. Whether the president stays whether he's reelected, whether he is impeached, all of those things are going to to basically, b I think viewed in Moscow, very, positively. The only thing that Moscow that the Russians would really worry about is. If there were sudden turn in American policy where we said, look, we know what you did. Here's the things we're going to do to you that are going to make your life miserable. And here the things we're gonna expose the hearings. We're going to have you know, we we are saddled up, and we're coming for you to to reveal what you've done in the shadowy world of intelligence here. But that's that's just not going to happen. And it may not happen ever. Because I think by the time either by twenty twenty one or twenty twenty-five whenever. And the president leads people are going to be exhausted by it, and that I think is a real danger to the country. And I I think in some sense that ship is filled. So you don't think that there's a possibility bias remorse in as much as Trump is so unstable and just simply having him have access to the nuclear codes and appear to be you know, less and less capable of functioning both mentally and physically is that not a concern. You mean for the Russians or the Russians in other words, if you wake up and gets on their own wakes up on the wrong side of the bed and shit some nuclear missile. I don't think the Russians I don't think the Russians worry about that. At all. I think they understand that they have a lot of compromising material on the president. I that's my personal view. I think that they thirty years of doing business with the old Soviet Union and with the Russians I think they're quite comfortable with Donald Trump. Right where he is. So I don't I don't think they wake up and worry about that. What thomas? Nicholas. I thank you very much. Joining us here today. Thanks for having me in.

We'll assess who if anyone is taking care of the nation's national security and dealing with. Unfolding global events which mostly so far have not involved a foreign policy crisis or confrontation in little though, it is bad enough that Trump is compromised by the Russians who are continuing to meddle without elections. His reckless disregard for making sure the remnants of ISIS in Syria, not allowed to escape to fight us another day, which was the issue of a witch secretary of defense resigned indicates held it'll Trump cares about his role as commander in chief since he's main preoccupation appears to be to stymie investigations into him.

And he's latest book is the death of expertise the campaign against his tablets knowledge. And why it matters. And he has an article at USA today. Trump fails us as commander in chief. Welcome to background briefing. Thomas nichols. Thanks for having me. So before we get into the article. Well, you make the case that President Trump has traded his country Judy for his own safety just yesterday or I think it might have been over the weekend Sunday. I think he he tweeted thirty six thirty seven times. Oh kinds of you know, aggrieved tweets about the mullahs report. No collusion. No, collusion and stuff like that. And the impression you get is that this is what this president of assets managed does most of the day. We know he watches a lot of television. But he's also tweeting out sort of, you know, petty attacks on critics. And that sort of tremendous sense of agreement that he has that he sort of beleaguered by valor in the Democrats, and you wonder what about the business of of state? I mean, fortunately, we haven't had a crisis yet. But they happen often presidents are often faced with serious national security challenges we've been lucky so far. But my impression is that. This is a president who is toddy obsessed with himself and his own political problems and isn't really doing the nation's business important to remember that I don't speak for the government here in my own view. But I have the same reaction every morning that you do I open up the newspaper or turn on the television. Or I look at Twitter, and I see the president sometimes as you point out. You know, multiple tweets of various levels of unhinged. Anger, and I keep wondering who's running the country who's actually paying attention to the day to day. Business of I mean, I worked in political office. I worked for Senator. We were busy from you know, o'clock in the morning until sometimes into the night. And we were just trying to do the business of legislating. I mean, the president seems to have plenty of time to watch FOX and friends and to tell the New York Times it needs to get on two knees and apologize to him and talk about enemies of the state and all kinds of other things that his own White House counsel refer to as crazy stuff. And I think, you know, it's it's it's unnerving..

"But maybe in the future because I think transparency is very important. Yes. And then also the other part of it is that on the hill. There's this huge movement to increase diversity under staff is that something that any of our any of our past presidents has done. And I think I have the answer for this president, do you think that's something that we should focus on going forward? Okay. Let me take the first question. I that's a really good question. So there's something on there's also something on. The hill outside the he'll call the congressional management foundation. That does a tremendous job of collecting all kinds of statistics demographic statistics about the people who work for members of congress and probably their length of stay in their jobs as well. I'm sure there's some of that as well that does not exist for the presidency. In fact, one day, I got a call on this. And the reporter on the other end said so so are you kind of like the congressional management foundation? Well, mine is the fact that there's probably thirty staff members in a budget and things like that. I guess I end the parallel. We don't have that. I'll tell you one thing you can look at is every June at the end of June, President the president and his team have to submit a list of their staff to congress. It's a report to congress on their staff. And so it does include the salary you can see salary and you can see the title. The problem is sometimes after that's transmitted to congress. There's even staff changes. And so it's not completely up-to-date. It also includes the personal White House staff. It doesn't include staff. Ownby NFC any of the very important parts of the executive office of the president. So to me, it's not comprehensive not nearly as comprehensive as it should be. So as I pointed out at the beginning. I I struggle to come up with people ask me sometimes, well, how many people work for the president? I don't know. You know, I think it's grown tremendously since Eisenhower. I would say and mostly since Nixon ever since president Nixon has become much more of a communications PR that's been beefed up tremendously. But I don't have an accurate figure. So I think that's something we need to work toward actually occasionally work with the partnership for public service. But we really need to brainstorm to figure out how we can either foia. This kind of information or create some sort of website or database that has the list of White House staffers. How much they're getting paid? How long they stayed in their jobs. I think it's really important transparency in our government is really important. So we should do whatever we can to promote that on the issue of diversity. I not sure that the White House has much of a I guess, you would say an HR human resources office within it. And I'm not sure that they have any deliberate efforts to achieve diversity if so they're not really publicly available or a transparent, I know that when President Clinton became president. He said he wanted to create a cabinet that looks like America. So he had one of the most diverse cabinet is back in nineteen Ninety-three. And I think successor presidents have tried to follow suit, more or less. Trump sort of took a little bit of a different tack. But I think that one thing that's interesting is that as I told you before this whole issue of presidential staff really didn't start 'til FDR. So it's a relatively new phenomenon. And generally speaking, congress has been hands off about the staff, they send out their budget about how much they need to pay their staff and congress just sorta signs it and moves on it's as though the two branches don't want to micromanage each other. And they worry that if they start to micromanage the president's staff, and maybe the same would happen to them. I think and so because of that we have little information. So I don't know about any particular diversity programs or things like that. But I think it's really important. Thank you. Thank you. Amanda, Hurley also Harvard extension school and two questions for you. The first one is in response to who we may have noticed the president's hired and also fired he tends to rely more on loyalty than qualifications as voters. Desires stability. How do you think? This will affect. His voter turnout in twenty twenty and the second question is. On compromise within. Within the government shutdown right now. Do you believe that they'll come to some form of compromise? And what do you think it will look like, right? Okay. Tell me your first question again, I got distracted by the budget shutdown. Oh my gosh. So long. The first question was about voter turnout. Oh, yeah. Okay. So yes. So your question is basically because of all this instability will that affect voters perception of the Trump administration and possibly make them either not turn out or vote for the other candidate. Under normal circumstances would think that's the case. But I think in this administration what you've seen over time is that he has this block of supporters that is staying strong, despite all kinds of setbacks. So it's roughly like thirty five to thirty eight percent when you look at polls support him, and that has not shifted a lot. I was reading an article the other day, and it was referring to Gallup poll, saying President Trump has one of the most stable approval ratings of prior compared to prior presidents. And that's because he has a block of supporters that no matter what happens they are still with him through thick and thin. So I don't think the instability. Maybe there's people on the margins who say all the staff turnover is reflective of a disorganized president. And I want somebody who's better than that. Maybe. But I actually think that I'm not sure what would sort of unsettled. Some of the thirty four percent that really are strong supporters. I'm not sure, and I don't think it would be White House staff turnover. And in fact, I sort of think that my topic in my research interest is a little bit inside the beltway or people who are political scientists or political science majors who care about this and are reading the newspapers daily, and and understand the importance of staffing governing. But I would say most Americans probably don't care about either of those things. With the shutdown. I would love to see a compromise. One of the things that I think is essential in a president is that they understand that there's a campaign mode, and there's a governing mode and in governing you have to be skilled in negotiation. You have to be willing to compromise. And I haven't really seen those features or characteristics emerging from this administration. So to date. It's it's a stalemate. And I don't see him changing. I think maybe what will happen is they'll be some sort of hybrid. So there'll be something about like Lindsey Graham was was suggesting I think yesterday that maybe what should happen. Is you open up the government you reopen the government the then you declared national emergency two weeks from now. And that's when you get your wall money. So maybe they'll come up with some. Kind of hybrid approach to reopening the government. But whatever it is. It's not going to be something that upsets his base who really wants to the wall. Because I think that's as we've seen. He was all set to sign the Bill and then Laura Ingraham, Ann Coulter and a few other conservative. Television people came out strongly against him signing it, and he changed his mind. So it seems to me that now he's focused on how does he appease those people? So he doesn't so he doesn't have to endure that criticism again. And so that strikes me as it's not going to be a compromise. There's no way you can't back down. If you've said that you're not going to do that. So there might be some sort of hybrid deal where he can kind of still say face. And that's what I think the Democrats need to start to think about it. Because where we are. Now, it's not gonna change. Unfortunately, Katherine Dunn tempests of the Brookings Institution. If you. Hi, my name's Hannah. I go to Drake university. And I was wondering since Donald Trump got his start on reality television. What your opinion on the fact that a lot of staffers are now turning to reality television has to say about his administration. Oh, tell me about something examples to returning to only Rosa was on seventy last season and yesterday, it was an outstanding Scaramucci will be returning. She's in two of seventy big brother. Right. Are there any is there? Anyone else? I know of but like considering that that's not really something that's happened before. No. That's unique for sure there's a lot of unique features too. I mean. The huge number of people that have never worked for in government before having your daughter in law in senior White House positions has not been I can't recall. I think David Eisenhower worked for that was his son. And there have been some examples, but not in this extraordinarily extraordinarily senior level. There's a lot of I in this administration. So everybody really needs to be studying this everybody needs to document, it people need to publish because this is truly a unique time in American politics. I would say I'm not surprised about the Marotta Anthony Scaramucci who he lasted eleven days in the White House. I think who knows. Yeah. Jeez. A little comic relief. I think is what it is. But thank you. Hi bet breath from hostile university. I know this is a bit beyond your purview of your studies. But I was interested in maybe just anecdotally, how do you feel that consistency? And Steph opens the staff up to like reach from constituents, and how do you feel that such consistent turnover especially in like, the really essential positions affects how constituents are able to interact with people in the executive branch. Right. Well, it makes it difficult because as I said at the start personal relationships are the corner of the realm in Washington DC. And so let's say you're working in the office of public liaison. That's the office that reaches out to interest groups and tries to have this reciprocal relationship where the interest groups have access to them and can tell them about their preferred policy and the White House has access to them to say, listen, we're about to nominate Brad Kavanagh or Neal Gorsuch, what will your organization think about that nomination. Can you help support us with that? Can you get a groundswell of support for it? So they have this symbiotic relate. Ship. But again, if the staff keep turning over, and they don't have their contact point in the White House. It makes it very difficult for constituents to reach out. It's similar to the question on congress and congressional offices that constituents that's their access point to the legislative branch are the people who do the case work for those members of congress. And when they're not there when there's a lot of turnover it makes it very difficult for the people to feel like it's their democracy. It's their government. I would say for the presidency. There's fewer sort of points of personal contact like I couldn't call and say, hey, there's this road. That's being built in my neighborhood that I really don't want to be built know. Can you do anything about it? They would refer me to the governor or what have you? So it's a little bit less constituency base a lot less constituency based in congress, but nevertheless, people who work at advocacy organizations people who work agencies people who are state governors or party leaders across the country have access points in the White House. And I'm sure there has become more complicated because people aren't staying in positions long. Yeah. You're welcome. Hello. Josh Cooke, Drake university, you drew some hair lows between the corporate business world and the White House staff. I was just wondering what this on boarding process. 'cause I know a lot of corporate companies are starting to be more open about what their on boarding Costas. And know, I was just wondering you had any. Yeah. That's that's a tough question it again, and it gets back to the transparency. It's so hard to find anything about the inner workings like the way, I find about out about presidential turnover is not through reporters asking Sarah Sanders has so and so left has so and so come on board. It's because politico is able to get some anonymous source to tell them. Oh, yeah. Rick Dearborn left in March or so. And so Andrew Bromberg is leaving in the spring. They are not transparent about it. And so if I can't even get names of people, there's no way I can find out how much time and effort, the office of presidential personnel is spending recruiting training et cetera..
"harvard extension school" Discussed on News 96.5 WDBO
"Except they're not here today. It's me Scott Robinson, Craig Collins. If you are a parent, particularly when you're you're worried about college. What about how you're gonna pay for your to what college where the grades are with the kid. It's a lot of pressure, man. They just need to get a scholarship, right? That's all they. Yeah. That's all just okay. Who will be gret Harvard University earn both a high school degree and a bachelor's degree from the Ivy league school at the same time. He's sixteen from high school in college, and it's Harvard. Yes. Braxton morale a student at Ulysses high-school listens Kansas. Hello, look. This is great for him. But I gotta be honest. The other kids in his class. Probably don't feel great. They probably don't like going home to mom and dad and being like, hey, how his class going for your you're doing as well as this kid's doing? Yeah. He's graduating from Harvard this year, son. You're putting like you're putting like drawings at your kids on the refrigerator with a magnet. He's doing calculus, right? Lizzy says it's it's west of Wichita nice, two hundred miles became the only student who successfully pursue to two degrees at the same time. Why did he pursue it? Because he could the high school degree isn't that kind of a throw away at this point yet nothing now. Yeah. How did he even get into Harvard? We'll still in high school. His dad said that when his son was in third grade educators told his parents you need to do something. He's not just gifted. He's really really gifted. So his dad said that he and his wife took to community college to be tested and said, they thought the machine was broken. He was like off the charts. Beyond that associates degree. So he went on to skip the fourth grade. Wait a minute. This is in third grade. Associate's degree, holy macaroni. So the school board allowed him to take some high school classes while he was still in middle school. Before he entered high school, the boy took a class at Ford. Hey state university chair and then was admitted to Harvard not. He simultaneously studied at the high school and Harvard extension school. Golly. A math teacher, by the way served as the Proctor for the Harvard program. Administering the boys tests he spent the summer before his junior at Harvard's camp in Cambridge Massachusetts, by the way. What is he going to do? Well, that's the thing. He was asked what he wanted to do. You know, what he said? No. When you go to politics, no politics, terrible idea. Cossio is proof. You don't need a brain to enter politics. Do something with your life. Something invent things that are useful. We can't have smart people running for political office. We just can't have it. No society is is what are we gonna do about? That is ruined. If he turned away at the door. Are you smart? Yes. So get out of here. We can't have any of those. None of you too. Intelligent for this logic brains will not work here, my friend now. I mean, the people he wants to help politically the same here. I have a story about it's kind of spooky when you think about it. I mean think about where you were when you were sixteen years old what you were doing. Yeah. I mean, you're living in a world that is. I mean, how can it be your typical sixteen year old relate to that? Now. I have no idea that kid is. So either he's going either he's going to be really really wildly successful. Or he's going to be living under a bridge in ten years. It can't be living under. That's insane. It's possible. You just you just drop out you just can't anymore. You just quit. Why would he drop out of society? Why would he give up on us? We there's too much pressure. Man. We have things like, cute aggression. Have you heard of cute aggression, C U, T, E, aggression, T aggression? Are you familiar with? What that is. I don't know. Why super intelligent person would give up is society that deals with cute aggression. I can't begin to know what what if somebody else's kid is cuter than your kid now. Okay. The holiday season is all about cute things. You've got those ads with adorable children. You've got the movies with baby animals with big eyes like Bambi. But when people encountered too much cuteness, we have acuteness overload and scientists call that cute aggression. My gash people say that this is this flash in thinking where I wanna crush something. I want to squeeze it till it's is Bob out. Face. That's what psychologists are telling us happens during this overload month. If you feel right now like year at acuteness overload. Take a step back go watch bird box or whatever you need to do to just take that take the edge off of your cuteness month. Do you have cuteness overloaded all Scotty? And I'm gonna stop saying, no cute. Cute is good. I q now get the impulse to squeeze. No never ever. That's a sickness, man. That's something wrong with people people deal with it. It's thing that happened to divert yourself from that go the do the Mark Levin Cam homepage. And have a look at those boys that'll divert it according to the psychologists in the study, I'm reading from from when people feel this way, it is not a desired actually cause harm. It's just an expression of the overwhelming cuteness that's being thrust upon them. Cute. Aggression is often baffling embarrassing to the people who experience it. They usually say things like this is weird. I'm probably the only one who feels this way. But don't worry. You're not alone. It was first described back and research by Yale several years ago. So this kid who graduated from Harvard I've only had gone to Yale. He'd know all about the cute aggression problem. I never heard of that before. Electrical activity and brains of fifty four young adults were tested, and they found that several people had markers of cute at Gresham. You don't get angry when you see like too, many of the same thing when people aren't trying too hard to make everything. So so that's an interesting question. Because the way you just phrased it is different than what? Said earlier, I think I think people trying to act cutesy, right? That doesn't make you angry. Oh, they does. Sometimes there is an aggressive nature that happens. When when I see that when I see just stop it. Okay. Do you like to cute talk when a girl tries to do you like the baby baby voice or something? Like that. Voiced baby. Always don't I don't know. No. I don't I don't like that. At all. I don't like the burn thing that that you get like that up cute aggression because of the baby shark radio because it is to me. It is cute. It makes me angry. I got it. I want to squish the sharks..
