"I've been waiting all week for this. He is the vice president of the heritage foundation heritage dot. Org he is the man we go to for all matters national security and foreign policy. Jim califano welcome back to america. First you're on am. I know not live on national radio. America you have to actually here. So let's i think there's two big issues one is what they're gonna do next which is going to make things even worse in the white house and and the other is what we how we stop it okay so before we get to that for two days.

What's going on biden. Convinced himself that afghanistan was going to collapse. He so he had and so he grabbed gani. And he said you're going to cut a deal with the taliban and you're gonna turn the country over to the taliban and what you guys are going to do is let me leave first. And then the country's gonna collapse and it won't happen on my watch and it won't be fall and what happened is of course. The taliban were like well dude. If you just tell us you're leaving we're not gonna cut any deal and of course ghani got cold feet grabbed his suitcases and headed for the door. And then what biden did was just executed is planning precipitated. The collapse and then he put himself in a situation where where there was no escape. It's literally like dustin hoffman walks up to customer and says dude there's a million indians on the little bighorn don't go there and then custard charges anyway and and get surrounded by the by the indians and then he then he turns to the guy next. How could this possibly happen.

If those there'd be an honest will tell you the same thing. Here's what we do know. All the rhetoric this ministration though saying that one terrorist organization how the fighting with one tears organization. That's all bunk because reality is all the terrorist organizations now fully operated freely in afghanistan. Have all one thing in common their hatred for america and their unwavering commitment to do us harm remains and so they're going to continue as they happen looking for every single vol- ability to do that mission to do us harm and right now. One of the biggest vulnerabilities that this country has is our southern border. You know let me give you just real quick because a couple of staff because forty fifty percent of resources have been pulled off the line to process the two hundred twelve thousand. Were getting every single large air. The borders are wide open. Unsecure this fiscal year alone estimate. I'm being conservative. Three hundred and forty thousand.

Let's talk to somebody who has something to say about the issue former commissioner for the customs and border protection agency now with the heritage foundation. Mum morgan welcome back to american. I thank sebastian. For having me. I gotta go straight for the jugular. We are hearing again and again and again from alejandro llorca. Dhs from the state department. Today from anthony blinken that they have a rigorous vetting process for the over one hundred and twenty thousand afghans who have being flown out on our military flights. I just how do you do vexing for example for a person who has no documents. And whose data isn't on any system we own. Can you explain the wizardry of this administration to me now. Jackie sebastian. Look you just what you just talk about. Common sense look a couple of things. We that are factual based not spending misdirection. Come from this administration. First of all the military commanders. Their their mission is very clear from the white house. It was all about fast fast fast. Get people on planes as fast as possible. Look i've been serving this country for thirty five years. I've been involved in operations. Where fast took precedent over other things. When that happens things fall through the cracks. There is no doubt that people getting on that plane that we knew. Virtually nothing about sebastian. It looks the factor detail in this. We've already heard about people got onto planes that later. They found derogatory information that they were connected to the taliban they were connected to isis here in dallas.

The Daily Signal Reports Millions of Ballots Were Unaccounted for in 2020 Election
"The daily signal is a highly respected. News operation coming out of the Heritage Foundation. And they just wrote a piece that I think is very, very important. 15 million votes in 2020 election not accounted for, report finds. By Fred Lucas, who is a longtime reporter as well. Almost 15 million mail in ballots were unaccounted for in the 2020 presidential election, and more than a million more ballots were unbelievable, according to a new study. The public interest Legal Foundation, which is headed by a very bright man. You've heard J. Christian Adams before. Released a research brief assessing the effect of mass mail in balloting in an election with a close presidential race in key battleground state. Such as Arizona, George in Wisconsin. Adams, by the way, is a former Litigator in the Department of Justice and the Civil Rights Division Voting section. These figures, detail how the 2020 push to mail voting. Needs to be a one year experiment, J. Christian Adams, president of Public Interest, Legal Foundation, said. Report found that 1.1 million melon ballots were unbelievable for various reasons. Election officials rejected another 560,000 melon ballots. Another 14.7 million mail ballots met an unknown faith, the report says. Holy crap! Joe Biden. Defeated Donald Trump. They right. With an electoral victory of 360 to 32 after winning Arizona Judge of Wisconsin by 320.6% points or less. Washington Post analyst In February, found that flipping fewer than 43,000 votes across those three states. Could have changed the election outcome.
Liz Cheney Ousted From Republican Leadership for Challenging Trump Election Claims
"Speaking of not going to convince anybody. Liz Cheney was ousted from leadership within the GOP earlier today, it was a very big studio. Everybody had very, very strong opinions about it. Liz Cheney is is about as pro Trump as a conservative Republican can get. According to the Heritage Foundation. She voted for President Donald Trump, or with President Donald Trump something like 92.9% of the time. It's It's an amazing, amazing figure, but because she decided to come out against him in the most recent impeachment. Now what they're effectively doing as we're going to hear from CBS is this kind of sacrificial killing. They're doing this thing where they're trying to demonstrate to the base. They're trying to show everybody in the Trump base that they really do care. And by doing so, we're going to oust Liz Cheney from GOP leadership for just expressing her opinion as guaranteed to her by the Constitution of the United States. As a representative, we need to get rid of her, regardless. Here is a list Cheney earlier today. Today we face a threat America has never seen before. Ah, former president who provoked a violent attack on this capital in an effort to steal the election, has resumed his aggressive effort to convince Americans that the election was stolen from him. He risks inciting further violence. Millions of Americans have been misled by the former president. They have heard on Lee his words, but not the truth as he continues to undermine our democratic process, sowing seeds of doubt about whether democracy really works at all. I am a conservative Republican and the most conservative of conservative principles is reverence for the rule of law. Theological. Toral College has voted more than 60, State and federal courts, including multiple judges, the former president appointed have rejected his claims. The Trump Department of Justice investigated the former president's claims of widespread fraud
As Congress prepares to take up Washington DC statehood, national support grows
"At the hearing today on and on dc statehood. We had some real gems the heritage foundation. Zach smith said dc residents already impact the national debate because members of congress see their yard signs while driving to work and then a republican representative actually said dc would be the only state without an airport car dealership or landfill to be a state. That was his argument. The landfill landfill. Our what does that even mean so. They don't have great arguments guys and speaking of arguments. We do have some new polling on voting rights that we did with our friends at data for progress where we tested democratic arguments in favor of hr one against republican arguments opposed to hr one The good news is that support for the bill. Holds up even after you give people the republican arguments though. Some of those republican arguments are more effective than others What was your takeaway from the polling. In terms of what democrats should both emphasize and be ready for love. I would say like the to me. The the biggest takeaway was not what individual arguments did but rather how the the numbers change once people find out. It's a partisan issue right. Like republicans are far more in favor of hr one until they find out it's democratic proposal and to me you know. Republicans are pushing a lot of this because of the big lie and because some of the motivations and fears that we talked about but because a lot of this is based on a lie there. A lot of assumptions Baked into into these republican proposals. That are necessarily true like the assumption that mail in voting somehow in a normal election will benefit democrats and so to me. What i took away from this is if you want to fight back against the argument that this is particularly partisan we should be saying that republicans that democrats want to make it easier for democrats and republicans to vote. We want non partisan gerrymandering commissions. We wanna make it easier for everyone no matter their political affiliation to vote and republicans are so afraid of voting that they wanna punish their own voters make it harder for their own voters to show up at the polls just because they're afraid of democratic voters we need to be making this a non explicitly nonpartisan.
Republicans criticize Trump lawyers' performance
"Criticism from some Republican senators former President Trump's lead attorney Bruce Castor defends the performance of the Trump legal team on Day one of the former president. Senate impeachment trial. We have a good day. Good day Heritage Foundation senior Legal fellow John Malcolm begs to different presentation. Made by the House managers, I thought was certainly more polished than the presentation made by Mr Trump's lawyers. I actually wasn't terribly impressed with the hose, but we will see how they do in the days ahead. Malcolm on the Salem radio network, GOP Senator Bill Cassidy among six Republicans joining Democrats in voting to proceed with the trial that comes as a surprise, But Cassidy says the House impeachment managers did a better job of presenting their case. In the Trump legal team, complaining that the Trump lawyers failed to adequately address the constitutional question, Cassidy says. When they did talk about it, they kind of glided over it. Almost as if they were embarrassed of their arguments. The Senate will reconvene at noon today You hear opening arguments in the impeachment trial,
Nearly 3 million U.S. women have dropped out the labor force
"Not long after Donald Trump arrived at the White House, he disbanded and office that focused on challenges affecting women. President Biden is now resurrecting it. Women's rights groups hope this will help them make progress on things like paid family leave and affordable child care. Here's NPR's Melissa Block. The wish list on Biden's agenda for women is long restoring an expanding reproductive rights, combating gender based violence, reducing maternal mortality, and he's pitched a slew of economic proposals. Major structural disruption requires major structural change. And I feel like thinking big right now is exactly what we need to do. So now is the time That's the co chair of the Biden administration's new gender Policy Council. Jennifer Klein. You know we're seeing because of the health pandemic because of the economic crisis, and, in fact, take care giving crisis that's been layered on top of it. These are core issues core issues, Klein points out that air hitting women hard and especially women of color. Just look at the most recent jobs numbers. In December, women accounted for all 140,000 of the country's net lost jobs. One factor behind that, with so many schools and day care centers closed because of the coronavirus. Many women have had to drop out of the labor force. That's been disastrous, says Joan Williams, director of the Center for Work Life Law at the University of California, Hastings. Mother's already We're at the breaking point in the United States. I mean, we already had a choc your system that was basically a Rube Goldberg machine and the coronavirus brought that machine crashing down. Williams says. What she wants the Biden administration to do is to recognize that Just as we don't expect workers to get to work without physical infrastructure like bridges and roads. We can't expect workers to get to work without a care infrastructure. What would that care Infrastructure look like for Williams? That would mean subsidized neighborhood based child care, paid family leave Universal, pre K and $15 an hour minimum wage, especially during the pandemic. Single moms have had to choose between putting food on the table and leaving young Children home alone. Now. Part of the reason is because the minimum wages so low that there is no way on God's green Earth that those moms can pay for childcare. The paid caregivers are also reeling from the crunch. President Biden highlighted this when he announced his covert 19 relief plan last month. Let's make sure caregivers mostly women, women of color immigrants. Have the same pay indignity that they deserve. Advocates like I Jen poo, director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, are heartened by what they're hearing from Biden. Her group represents workers, including nannies, home care workers and housekeepers, actually focusing on how we're going to make Thies jobs, good jobs for the 21st century. That you can take pride in and earn a living wage with benefits. That is a really big breakthrough. Conservatives, though, are leery of an agenda that carries a hefty price tag and they warn, will lead to crushing government regulations. Charmaine Yost is vice president of the Institute for Family Community and Opportunity at the Heritage Foundation. My biggest concern is that all of the proposals that I'm hearing coming from their side of things inevitably seem to come back to big government intervention in government programs. As for raising the minimum wage in the midst of a pandemic, when many businesses are suffering so badly if there were a time that you could create, that would be the perfect time to not Raise the minimum wage. This would be it with such a slim Democratic majority in Congress. Biden's agenda could have a tough time gaining traction. But Fatima Goss Graves, who heads the National Women's Law Center, is undaunted. Her group has issued an ambitious list of 100 demands for Biden's 1st 100 days. Basically, what we're asking this administration and Congress to do is effectively walk into gum. We need them to both undo things that have been harmful and have been Holding this country back and launch us forward in a way that we're stronger for it, Graves adds. This president doesn't have the luxury of coasting in Melissa Block NPR news

"Uh, Arguably a lot of overreaction by elected officials and UN elected officials in the state and local government in Colorado, still dealing with the surge of the pandemic and And school closures Ongoing which arguably are terrible overreaction, a terrible injustice to the kids. So 15 of us got together. As you said in the forefront, sells Heatherly, whom I first knew as a Heritage Foundation staffer in the eighties, when you and I were getting the Independence Institute going, Mike Along with retired the Colorado state Senator Kevin Lundberg, who was also in the statehouse and red in the primary for state treasure on the Republican side, 2018 2. Season policy hands put together these 15 contributors that I had the honor to write the introduction as you mentioned, and we're trying to sound the alarm and put on record Ah lot of granular detail about what went on in state government. Some measure local government. And in our courts during these tumultuous months of 2020, I was the booklet came out in September, and you and I were first going to talk about it on the air. As I recall Election Day, November 3rd, But now we got another month. Of experience under our belt, including a three day special session of the legislature. And the overall pattern the big picture when you get the granular detail assembled from the unmasked 2020 books. The pattern is one party rule is not pretty. As far as our liberties are states prosperity of what was once a roaring economy now on economy on its knees. On and family pocketbooks. All told, one party rule has run rampant in Colorado this year with the mantra of the left. Never let a good crisis go to waste. They they were certainly planning and ready for that, and you don't seem to be finished with it. We're trying to put on record the sad details of what happened sort of a political biopsy for the body politick. I should also note regarding John's background. We've been friends for over 30 years. John, once upon a time worked in the Nixon White House. John's also a veteran of the United States, Navy, and, of course, in addition to being a legislature, he's been involved in public policy institutions like the Sh Avenue Institute and the Independence Institute. Andre. We've been buddies for a long time, haven't we? Remember when you're just breaking into talk radio, and I heard you and it's moving our mike talking about your early days as a columnist, and I remember when you were beginning to develop your chops that way, and it Z fun toe still be your comrade and Travis sound. The battle cry of liberty or has time when it's endangered Colorado as you and I have been trying to do over the decades, I should also note that you were one of the first Republicans who had been involved with Richard Nixon. Has Watergate unfurled to call for his resignation. Made the only public protest resignation off of Nixon staff. I was a young speechwriter Mike, there were eight or 10 of us in the speechwriting staff in 1973. And as Nixon had stormed to re election in 72, But the Watergate scandal very quickly consumed the attention and any political capital that we would have enjoyed in his second term and into the year of 73. And ultimately, I couldn't. I couldn't breathe that scandal. Corruption tainted air. Not only quit my job, but I went public and told the country why I had quit. I have no evidence of criminality and Nixon's part, but I thought there was a Uh uh. Terrible failure of omission Job told his oath of office and see the laws of people and forces. The Constitution says the president must do So it was for a guy not yet 30 years old is a very heady eight or 10 weeks when I was in the glare of national attention, saying Nixon should resign honorably and if not resigned, and used the impeachment mechanism.

"Von Spakovsky. He is that the Heritage Foundation. He is the Manager of the election Law Reform Initiative, and we're talking about President Trump's legal options and sort of the behind the scenes legal wrangling that's going on now and what it all means. But now, Hans, first of all you said Take this election out of it. We know that there has been election fraud. You referenced North Carolina Speak to that for a moment if you would Sure, Look in North Carolina. Two years ago, we had a congressional election overturned because of election fraud, and what happened in that race was that was the candidate. I'm contract that and that he was the Republican candidate. Although It was never any evidence that he knew what his political consultant was doing. But he hired political consultant Who along with his staff. Uh, went to voters homes to collect their absentee ballot. Uh, he and his six chapters were all criminally indicted and criminally charged after the election, and all this evidence was produced that they were doing everything from filling in the ballots instead of the voters, filling them out to changing. Voters balance to forging signatures on about absolute Alex. They had obtained of both the voter and the witnesses. And through that They were able to submit enough. Fraudulent absentee ballots to change the outcome of the election at a new election had to be held, and that case really illustrates the problems with the whole absentee balloting process. And look that's not It's not an isolated case. I actually published a paper. Like two months ago. That went through and illustrated explain what happened in four different Absentee ballot fraud cases where people were charged criminally convicted in the elections were overturned because of widespread absentee ballot Broad How difficult is it to prove up a case of absentee ballot fraud? Because you're doing so after the fact you weren't there when it happened? How do you actually prove that? It is extremely difficult and in fact one of the judges and where those cases talked about that very fact because look, um the only way to prove it. Is to start calling voters to start calling voters and interviewing them and You don't necessarily know and the voters not going to know if an absentee ballot, um that he, for example, handed off to somebody else's liver. He's the how's he going to know that they may have changed his vote? You know, One of the only things you can find out is if you call up the voter, and he says, Well, what do you talking about? I didn't vote the election. Yet there was an absentee ballot submitted for him, but it's it's fact intensive. Even if you do that, that's only one. You've gotta go one by one by one. I mean, this is a really hard thing to prove. What happened. Yeah, No, it really is in the congressional in the congressional race in North Carolina. They were fortunate in one way because the margin of victory that race was only 905 votes. So they were able to pull together the evidence of the fraud there. But you know if it's a lot bigger margin than that, like you said, gathering together the evidence that could be extremely Difficult and you've only got Very short time period in which to do it, Hans, Let's Let's look at another race in addition to the presidential race, what's going on in New York? I'm sure you're following that the 22nd congressional district The Republican challenger to Anthony Brindisi, who was the sitting or the incumbent Democrat congressman. He she called mutiny ends up leading And then all of a sudden 55. She's leading by 12 votes. And then all of a sudden 55 ballots were miraculously discovered. And lo and behold, it puts bring D C back in the lead. I mean, come on. Have you ever seen anything like I mean, I've seen it because I'm from Texas or read about it, Where landslide. Lyndon and the Duke of Duval County, and the last ballot box was brought in after the voting was done because Lyndon Johnson said in 1948, I'll never be cheated again because he thought and 42. He was cheated by Pappy Leo Daniel, and maybe he was, but it became part of Texas. Legend here, But this shouldn't be happening. 2020 come on. Wait shouldn't but but it's relatively easy to and by the way in that race, the Republican actually on Election Day at the end of Election Day, she was lead by 29,000 votes. It's all these absentee ballots that came in after election day that slowly whittled down her lead, and there's all kinds of problems in that race. Apparently Um Absolute balance that came in that had problems. In other words, they perhaps should have been rejected because they didn't qualify. Well, apparently, election folks, um, attached sticky. Note to them to indicate the problem. But the sticky notes have since fallen off, and now they don't know whether these ballots that should have been rejected have been included in the counter. Not I mean the way it's been handled terrible, but remember. New York is a state in which there is no requirement of an ID to vote either in person or by absentee ballot, and they've had numerous Cases and have this huge prior history of election fraud and let me guess you're going to tell me that if I show up and say I'm Hans van Spakovsky and I vote as Hans van supposed funds because ski and I'm not him that that could possibly happen if you don't require I d.

The first one is called the march for all Women. This is going to take place in the steps of the U. S. Supreme Court later on today, and the same is it I'm with her, but the her in this case, Rick is not Hillary Clinton. You recall that you used that phrase in her 2016 campaign. The herd this time is Judge Amy Cockney Barrett as she's waiting out her nomination there to the highest court in the land. This has been organized by the conservative Independent Women's warm and some of the folks that are going to be along. You may notice. No, they are Fox News contributors. Sarah Carter.

Barrett deserves to be treated with respect that's coming from Tammy Bruce, she said. Yet the so called women's movement is standing by, while the mainstream media Questions. If Miss Barrett can be a Supreme Court justice and a good mother, in addition to vilifying her for her background and her faith, and that's Tammy Bruce talking, but At the opposite end of the mall. At the exact same time, there's going to be a another women's march. You recall the women's march of years ago where they do a million progressive ladies. Down on the mall that was in 2018. They're also planning an afternoon rally and march down the hall in that area. It's called the count on US events, and they're going to start at Freedom Plaza, not far from the White House and force trumps hotel down there, and after they get down down to the mall, they're going to have a mask. Texting effort about their cause. They expect to send out five million checks, and they also have 400 other marchers that are taking place in 50 other states. That's what they have to say. We need a huge and powerful mobilization to help energize the nation inspire millions to turn out to vote and to cap off Trump's presidency just the way it started with massive women led resistance. You got it. Two marches down there. One conservative one. Definitely progressive feminist. If you're curious about the conservative 1 march for all women simply go to march for all women dot com.

Join Us in Prayer for Our Nation
"To join us for the call center. I'm John. Stonestreet, this is great for. Christians should be among those most deeply concerned about the divided state of our nation left versus right mass. No mass reopened versus stay at home virtual school versus in person raised politics police abortion religious liberty not to mention the remainder of what certain to be brutal presidential campaign. The issues we face range from essential to non-essential on essential matters, we should mourn deception and vowed to fight. For the truth on non essential matters we should mourn and hope to overcome division God's people can neither stay on the sidelines nor run away from the struggle instead knowing there is no hope other than Christ. We must ask onto mercifully powerfully mobilize us is people to advance that which is true and good if Christians are to speak with clarity courage and confidence and to be the. Of Truth and love and a world of Noise Echo Chambers, then we'll need to be prepared but even perfectly crafted arguments cannot replace Shut Colson would say the church being the Church speaking cannot replace being and to be the people that God calls us to be right now, we must rely on prayer. That's why each and every Wednesday morning between all the twelfth of November, the fourth, and that's the morning after the twenty twenty election the Colson center will be hosting a national prayer time the a Webinar we want you to join US each and every week to pray first and foremost for God's mercy. But that he would revive his church that he would bring about a renewal of righteousness that he would empower us to courageously offer protection for the most vulnerable to champion reconciliation across our deepest divides and that he would. Allow us to be instruments in the sustaining of religious freedom and the recovery of the family in our nation. Each prayer time will feature a devotional challenge and a prayer by Christian leaders such as Oz Ganesh Johnny Eric's Totta focus on the family President Jim Daly Woodside Bible Pastor Chris Brooks and watermark pastor Todd Wagner as well as at Stecher from the Billy Graham Center and the Heritage Foundation President Keiko James Now due to the limited capacity of zoom there will be limited live spots each week available to everyone who registers However, each weeks recording will be sent to anyone who registers so come to breakpoint dot org for more details and Fiji's Paul tells us that we don't wrestle against flesh and blood but against the rulers, the authorities, the cosmic powers over this present darkness against the spiritual forces of evil in heavenly places when people see us their enemies, it's difficult to remember that they aren't our enemies. So what we need to do as Paul Instructs this put on the former of God Faith Truth Righteousness Peace Salvation the word of God. And he says praying at all times in the spirit with all prayer and supplication keeping alert with all perseverance making supplication for all the Saints, and the Book of acts the earliest church activity we read off is prayer thousands of people from completely different backgrounds came together in one mind one art in prayer with one accord. That's what acts chapter one, verse fourteen and Chapter Two versus forty. Two seven says than what happened with the Holy Spirit moved in the world was never the same in fact, every spiritual revolution in history. With some kind of unified persevering prayer the very first outpouring of the holy. Spirit. In acts to the great awakenings, the businessman's revival and the Welsh revival story after story, you read the same thing people prayed God's spirit moved on the other hand every Christian history who was able to persevere and righteousness. Temptation or persecution without seeing revival in their lifetime they also did that through prayer. Our prayer of course cannot force God's hand but are only way forward is to seek his will together are purse can't control God. But we can invite him to change our hearts and minds including our own gods always working in our lives whether we realize it or not. But something powerful and world changing happens when people pray for God's spirit to move. The, Great Jonathan Edwards urged his fellow pastors to quote be much in prayer and fasting both in secret and with one another it is God's will. He said that the prayers of his saints shall be great and the principal means of carrying on the designs of Christ's kingdom in the world. When God has something to accomplish for his church, it is with his will that there should precede it the extraordinary prayer of his people Paul even tells us to pray for all things at all times for sesame chapter five specifically for our leaders both spiritual and secular as what the

Reactionary, not grabbing the bull by the horns and preventing things before they happen are dealing with proper solutions after they dio so congratulations, and I'm really glad I'm glad you got through. Also, folks, I may have to do a major major correction here and I'm a little dubious of this. But I have to tell you I've got two different numbers now that constitute the upper 10% and one of them is the household income per cent. How calculator and I'm not sure what the source For this is my source for the 52 115,000 year number has always been the Heritage Foundation, and they've gotten I think from IRS a question. What was the top 10% household income percentile in 2019 and this number is $184,200. That's Much higher than 55,000. And I know it makes more sense $184,200 here. If you make that arm or you're in the top 10% that makes far more sense, But I'm just telling you I'm telling you that 20 years ago the number was 52. $55,000 a year. Others. Another place that I went that says the number $116,000 a year. So the point is, it looks like I was incorrect, but I say this with the camera. I know that it makes more sense. If you earn 116,000 or 184,000 year that you're in the top 10%. I know that saying 55,000 or 60,000 year putting the top 10%. Sounds unbelievable. And it sounds unbelievable. No matter what year I'm telling you, it was the case 20 years ago. So it's ah hell. It's more than tripled in 20 years. If it's 100 84,000 year, and that's that's basic lets a congressional salary probably averaged out and, of course. Those clowns in the temper. 10% would probably do that automatically. So we'll keep trying to ferret this out. Um, whatever it is, the number is going to surprise you. I think most people think top 10% is in the millions.

"Growing the woman from the heritage foundation okay do you believe employers should offer healthcare to every employee that that they have I think that is part of a benefits package they should determine what is the best way and what do the well okay so no you don't believe it should be uniformly offered I think it should be what workers want my employers okay so the answer is no so and similarly your your view on parental leave is to let the market decide do we know how long puppies are allowed to stay with their mothers after a dog has given birth I don't at week's well so the market has decided that women and people who give birth deserve less time with their children than a dog and I think that that at its core has shown that the market has failed to treat people with dignity and with basic respect and so when that happens I think it's our job as the public to redefine the rules of society and to people and to treat people who give birth with the dignity that they deserve thank you very much see if you make it to birth because all you might make it a birth then that that guy rob and from north them governor a motion is map from Virginia he might decide even them all a conference to determine if you're going to live but other than that dignity I don't know how she came up with it it's not just to where is that it's the poppy standard but I'm not knowing where she's getting the eight weeks from maybe you do who determined that what law says that is that what you're saying is some water some standard you must do that so when it comes to women we ought to treat him like a dog at least like a dog and from the heritage foundation is no I don't know what that standard is can you point that out to me by god now my point is this this is the typical AOC stuff but it it was straight she's a driving force her endorsement of Bernie Sanders gave his campaign new life she is arguably the biggest endorsement on that site this is why polos he has to go down this path and must stay on it that a large number of our caucus on the Democrat side is more with a see than the so called moderates so she knows how Floyd this is that's why she went to the U.

to all right let's go to some cars hang it in doc in Wilmington his next solo docket evening always good this year on on on the radio Mr drugstore dot to dot for all you follow you avidly in here in Delaware as the on the big talker just a couple thoughts on the recent incident Jersey city a couple questions that I want your thoughts on this sure respect your opinion tremendously our server number one New Jersey has very very strict gun control state the weapons apparently used a R. fifteens or similar weapons are illegal told in New Jersey have been for many years right I think these guys are to be investigated there there are they are they have cars are both sounds like he's guys are the best years of domestic terror group with possible ties to a foreign power one group as they made as they targeted your supermarket near a Jewish school number two I want them to be investigated by possibly the a TF you're about all of that will farms as to where and how they got these weapons is what your weapons to be tracked and traipsed through there sure numbers from the weapons that were captured by the police this needs from recitation all investigations are both these points your thoughts Sir please on what I do know you're you're right on the money it's exactly right and thank god they went into the kosher market more than going into the Jewish school that was there but it's obvious anybody watching a tape they made a bee line they knew exactly where they was got where they were going and you're right how did they get those weapons who else is behind it thank you doc furry much thanks for the kind words and you know I don't know that you've ever seen hopefully they're not in your town this black Israelite group these are people that dress up in strange biblical costumes they say they're the real Israel lights one of these killers allegedly has been involved with this group for some time and here in Philadelphia they stand in front of major buildings usually on a Friday afternoon they scream hateful things that people tell them I'll cut your head off and stuff like this anti gay stuff they block entrances and yet a judge's so they have first amendment rights it is quite a spectacle and allegedly one of these killers was involved with this group I'm not sure about the other one to doc's point yeah get to the bottom of it why did they make a beeline to a kosher market to kill Jewish people and again thank god the school was nearby that would have been even worse all right coming up time magazine and you know I I talked about on my show today it saddens me every Christmas around December ninth tenth eleventh we would be engaged in a great conversation that I'm going to ask you at eight six six fifty Jimbo which is who is or who was the person or the group of the year you know that with time magazine I'll tell you who they decided on today but they become irrelevant because it's all political agenda they claim we're going to put on there

person did something amazing you know some politics in there now it's just over run by the five finalists were pelo Z. president trump the whistle blower they have to do a story with them we do least

good thing to do this the Hong Kong five Hong Kong protestors I'll tell you one why and also ask you who should have been the person or the group of the year by the way their guardians they do a guardians of the galaxy's thing there's a guardian of us group not the person of the year call the guardians and they have a picture of all the people that testified against trump Fiona hill the vin Margai son land you all those people there the people protecting us again stuff like truck there called the guardians this year of Gotham City no wonder they're wrong with it it's sad this used to be fun but who in your mind is the person or group of the year jump in now at eight six six fifty Jimbo.
Trump Serves Notice to Quit Paris Climate Agreement
"At the trump administration has notified the United Nations that the U. S. is officially withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement that means one year from now the United States will become the only nation to pull out of the global pact to combat climate change joining us now in true light he's a former climate official in the state department who helped develop the Paris agreement thanks for coming on the program thank you David this was switch is a not unexpected the present was planning to do this but what what went through your mind when you heard the news yesterday well it was expected certainly and I think that you know what we see here is I think typical unfortunately this administration which is that they're they're abandoning the fight we saw this in Syria we're seeing in on climate change this is something that you know there there's no doubt about the reality of climate change in the rest of the world the United States is the only place where they're still something and we have a a leader who who doesn't even acknowledge that climate change is real and and other countries care about this when we turn our back on them and then they're gonna turn their back on us and other countries are gonna fill the gap for assistance in in the in the in the server I just I I want to focus on the message from the administration yesterday I mean secretary of state Mike Pompeii you know was not talking about whether or not climate change exists he was praising the United States for lowering its greenhouse gas emissions over the last decade while also growing the US economy and I mean opponents of the Paris agreement have have made this essential argument that it could hurt the US economy is that a risk for the United States if they stayed in this agreement no it's not in fact it's quite the opposite there was a very interesting study that was done a couple years ago by the international finance corporation which is part of the World Bank group they looked at the top twenty one commitments under the Paris agreement for developing countries suggest that the the twenty one largest developing countries their conclusion was that in this created a twenty three trillion dollar investment opportunity between now and twenty thirty so when the United States turns its back on the Paris agreement and on international cooperation what we're doing is we're hurting American businesses and we are not growing the job sectors that other countries are gonna stop in and pick them pick up I think I remember a study from the conservative heritage foundation you know when when that the accord was was first developed I mean they were projecting aggregate GDP losses of two point five trillion dollars in that state so the next fifteen years a lot of income for American families you know have to buy energy and in different ways me what what is wrong with those numbers in those projections well that that particular study was riddled with flaws it had a pretty crazy assumption that we were going the only way we could meet our commitments into the Paris agreement would be to basically if history the U. S. industrial sector and and that's just not any that could be further from the truth the other thing though that what's not taken into account by studies like that is the economic harm that will happen that we know will happen if climate change is left unchecked so about a year ago the United States released this White House actually released the fourth US national climate assessment he came to the conclusion that left unchecked you were going to see economic impacts to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars per year by the end of the century if we do not do something on climate change and and that needs to be taken into account as well when we're looking at the overall economic impact this administration is that there are other ways to fight climate change even outside of the Paris agreement I mean could states could the private sector in United States step in and and do better in this way well they are in stepping in and I think that's one of the great things that we service seen weeds grow twenty five governors now hundreds of mares thousands of business business leaders who stepped forward and said that they want to try to fill the U. S. obligations under the Paris agreement but at the end of the day it's not going to be enough we actually absolutely need a re engagement by the U. S. federal government working with working with the states and cities and businesses to try to achieve our goals under the Paris agreement and your life is a former climate official in the state department he helped develop the Paris agreement thanks so much your time this morning
"heritage foundation" Discussed on WLS-AM 890
"At the heritage foundation and I believe a first time guest here and double bills Mr Jinping welcome Sir how are you thanks very much are you able to be here are you able to get that entire title on one business card or do you have both sides. I I wish I could I tended to my mother to prove to order that it was all worth it as chief counsel on the Senate Judiciary Committee under Orrin hatch you worked with him for a number of years can I talk to my listeners about this every single day as we've been reaching this boiling point which was so obvious impeachment is a political a political tool not necessarily one that would hold up in a court of law can you elaborate on that. the founders of our country took impeachment from the English system it's it's basically a mechanism to allow removal of a public official for serious misconduct an impeachable offense doesn't have to be a crime it's it's essentially a way of this kind of a safety valve you know instead of waiting till the next election if a if president for example has engaged in such a gregis conduct and really violated the public trust that you have to remove him now impeachment is the process for doing it we only used it nineteen times in American history most of those were were judges not to not presidents but so it's very rarely used elections are the normal way of. sing judgment on our elected officials but it it it is reserved for those who have been betrayed the public trust so grievously that they've got to be removed but how can I went back and I looked at the you know the founding fathers should I understand trees and we understand bribery we get that but high crimes and misdemeanors that seems like a very wide umbrella that could be used for political purposes was a George Mason that was insistent that that go into the constitution. well they they went back and forth about how but what language to use to capture the category of offenses that they were really aiming at there were different proposals some suggested just book treason and bribery and in some thought that was a too narrow others had even broader language and that's the the phrase.
Queen approves request to suspend Parliament but what does this mean for Brexit?
"And a joining us here in Washington is now Gardner senior fellow at the heritage foundation and also a former adviser to prime minister Margaret Thatcher and now that he could explain exactly what the prime minister did today well for the prime minister requested to to the queen that she had to clear the suspension or pro rotation all parliament in the United Kingdom for appeared all four to five weeks and what this means in terms of the big the big picture is that it is now far less likely that parliament will be able to block what is known as a new deal brexit and it is a very big move by by the prime minister Boris Johnson very bold Kelsey move it has taken many people by surprise in in London and is a clear signal of intent from the prime minister that he is one hundred percent committed to moving forward with brexit on October thirty first deal or no deal but it's important to bear in mind that the suspension of parliament is not unprecedented that have happened in the past and this is mostly a constitutional crisis of some critics all saying the Sony within the the power of the prime minister to seek the pro rotation all person's palm the third that is not the first time it's happened it's been used before and I think that so any Boris Johnson will be feeling more confident now I think you can the the likelihood of brexit happening on October thirty first which is off rule the the will of the British people the particular votive Apraksin twenty sixteen told someone to deliver that a promise on the pledge to the Briton's lotus and it now Gardner is you assess the reaction in Great Britain the head of the labor party Jeremy Corbyn calling this quote a threat to our democracy John Brcko who is the house of Commons speaker calling it a constitutional outrage how do you respond to that yes on is being very fierce opposition from some quarters in parliament especially from the opposition Labour Party but also from the the speaker of the house of Commons tone of Brcko who in one of one on one time was actually conservative but I have to say either the pollen it really will be powerless in my view to to block a new deal brexit unless of parliament is able to bring down the conservative government in a no confidence vote they have one week to do that which begins on Monday next week I think it's unlikely the parliament will have the the votes to to do that and I expect that actually killed from will will succeed it is a rule goal which is to move forward with the brexit agenda but without a doubt I mean they're all a lot of angry voices in parliament and and the speaker of the house of Commons John Burke who is a very all didn't anti brexit campaigner he certainly is going to be one of the most vocal opponents of the suspension of parliament which also cool Scott cut down his own authority as speaker so naturally Mr Brcko is very upset about the developer or talking with now Gardner of the heritage foundation and we should point out this is something that you predicted in one of the conversations we had earlier this summer in terms of the time line if prime minister Johnson in fact was elected by the conservatives to head up the party so walk us through the new deadline October thirty first with parliament coming back in mid October give us a sense of what will happen during that two week period yes Sir on October fourteenth the the conservative government will outline what is known as the end of the queen's speech outlining their agenda and following that there will be a meeting of the European Union helpful October seventeenth to eighteenth where person will seek a new deal with the European Union to withdraw from the E. U. and if a deal is agreed and parliament well I should debate the new with full agreement on October twenty first twenty second and it has to be said of course that is a big question mark whether or not the you will agree to a new agreement that is acceptable to the British government my own sense is the person is heading towards what is known as a new deal brexit and I expect that that new deal brexit will will be implemented on October thirty first unless you're gonna see major concessions from the European Union and of course parliament has to prove when you eat you withhold deal on October twenty first on October twenty second say that there's a big question marks but I would say the policy is very very clear now that we are heading for a a British exit from the E. on October thirty first and most likely that is going to be a new deal exit where white person simply negotiable trade section with the European Union on the World Trade Organization term and I think that that is the most likely scenario now I think there's a very small child all of parliament stopping in new deal brexit but I'd say that that opportunity to parliament to block a new deal brexit is very very minimal right now and I think it's highly likely that we all get to see practical into October thirty first they should help Toba has a number of very big date starting with October the fourteenth the data the queen's speech and then you have the other European Union tells me don't have a seventeenth eighteenth and then parliament will debate the queen's speech and a potential with told agreement on October twenty first twenty second save a lot a lot of events happening in October and one final point we have touched on this in the past but one of the biggest stumbling blocks it continues to appear to be the issue between Northern Ireland which is part of the UK and the Republic of Ireland and trade along the border so explain what the issue is and why that has been so difficult yeah I'll say the big issue for the British government is what is what is called the northern on and backstop found the backstop is basically demanded Bonnie the the European Union order to prevent a heart border between north and on and on the Irish Republic well the backs of actually does is that it this person point into the E. U. customs union indefinitely which is unacceptable to the new British government off rule membership of the EU customs union would mean that Britain could not find the same free trade agreements including with United States and therefore Boris Johnson demanding that the backstop be removed altogether the British government is a is saying that there should be high technology solutions the border issue that there should be a complete removal of any kind of border control between the south and the north of Ireland and that and the backstop should also be removed altogether in order to free person from each house and even answer the British government in favor of any kind of upon border nor is the European Union for some kind of agreement can be reached to remove the backstop but also to ensure that there is no hard border between the north and south more details available online at heritage you dot org Nile gardener here in Washington thank you for being with us it's my pleasure thank you

We're talking saying i'm really beautiful. What does the history behind this building while it did recently get some bow talks downstairs at the staff lounge where you got your waters and coffees when you walked in here but we are at the heritage foundation which is why working working as the nation's leading and largest conservative think tank. I have been working here for five years. <hes> i'm on the media side so oh i call myself conservative journalists they have a multimedia website called the daily signal and i produced videos. I write right and i do commentary for them. <hes> been here yet five years in in d._c. In it so close to the capital. I never take those views for granted. I have to say and i will throw this in. I met kelsey gosh. What was it ten years ago. At least we were working at fox <hes> at at the time we were working on <unk> slaving away there i that's how i met you guys in ryan right there too so oh. It is so awesome when i see you now on fox. It's just like a proud older sister. That's how i feel so congrats ball cause you were my older sister sure and so funny that i'm doing media now because i still get so nervous and i am not a natural like you were and still are and i still look to you for inspiration because you just like don't care what people think you will do. Stand ups in the middle of nowhere. Who's watching and i get nervous if i have like three people watching meanwhile on t._v. Millions of others could and they and they are but you know what you really. You pull it off so well. You're so eloquent and you look gorgeous. You really do i mean and with that beauty. That's your like one of those people who its natural beauty and i have to ask what are are you doing now because it was one thing when you were twenty five but now that we're not actually how old are you now. Let's say thirty wow the big three. Oh welcome welcome. Welcome welcome. I've only got what like another five minutes left. Hold on girl so tell us a little bit about what you do. Beauty beauty wise while it's it's an interesting question especially coming from the background where you know me from at because i did work very briefly the in the beauty and lifestyle world and i learned a lot very quickly <hes> but i also very quickly realized that moving to d._c. From new york was the the right move for me because i wanted to learn about how congress works how bill becomes law and really <hes> take my career in that direction. <hes> <hes> an beauty. I just have to say i'm very blessed from my mom and my parents i say my face and my hair i i get from my mom and my height and my good genes. I get from my dad. <hes> i don't over think it. I always loved natural beauty <hes> so i just i just tried to accentuate <hes> qualities that i already have i feel so lucky to have nice hair and for wild growing up i never wanted to touch it or highlight highlight it because i was worried that it would get stringy and unhealthy while she was the smart one sit out in the sun or good tanning beds either yeah i did go to a couple of dealing that you get your skin checks. Now not not too not too many but i did <hes> but you know i i. I guess maybe it worked for me because my hair is still in good condition and i don't do anything over the top now and i tried to only get highlights. <hes> maybe three times a year just so i don't overdo it and i do buy losch <hes>. Is that my pronouncing it right. No that's okay. It's i mean the tomato tomato tomato but at the end of the day you're not overlapping and you're not going all the way to the root. It's <hes> bellagio is the french term so it's just awesome. It's a technique. It's painting. Don't worry because i butchered you. Remember that time. I tried to say what was <hes> dr harass the e._m._t. No i turn a lot of things on here so you're in good company <hes>. I hope it's okay that i share <hes> you're also a mother to be. You're expecting <hes> congratulations with that. Thank you and so i was interested in how you're handling you know on the one hand you're on tv right which is a visual media and you. You have to be looking your best on your on t._v. On fox and on the other you know you've got to be concerned about what they're putting it or face about. Things things like highlights like have there been any concerns as a expecting mother that other women might be like <hes> absolutely <hes>. I'll get into that in one second but i just have to say with t._v. Makeup i've learned very fast. It's very different from makeup that you would wear every day yeah on. I'm very lucky that i can go over to fox news in have their professional hair and makeup artists <hes> do my hair and makeup when i go on t._v. V and there. I learnt some really simple tricks that i incorporate now like <hes> the how how much fake lashes can really open your eyes and change you. Hello she points to her. I have eyelash extensions. Ryan has gotten eyelash perm. They still goodbye amazing the things about that. I feel naturally too short to even work for naturally too long so everywhere i go people like your lashes great user naturally too long long. They are what what a terrible i didn't. I didn't think they were gonna look fake when i did it and they can. They know they don't don't look fake. They just looked phenomenal. Think yeah i had no idea and calculating but like you would probably not do this because the chemical anier i in be while you're pregnant right. Yeah i guess not. I'm trying not to be too crazy. <hes> you know i'm still using my same makeup and skin in care. I use kills love. Their cleanser love their moisturizer <hes> but the hair products. I was more concerned about and i didn't really have a way around this. It's actually something. I'm concerned about them out of hairspray. That's flying around the fox news green room when i'm there multiple times a week and i'm just inhaling failing that i'm like he's still be alive province. You're good. You're more than great. I mean our mothers and grandmothers than that al net honey you know women have babies who work in hair salons around chemicals and stuff all day not just the hairspray work until the absolutely popped the baby out to because it's you know what's up. It's that niche where like you have to be. You don't get paid if you don't work so they're working up until they can't so you're good nichols honey. I promise so i try try not to be too crazy and over thinking things and i just let the professionals do their job. When i go in there. It's amazing that i can <hes> go bare face jason half asleep because some of the hits are super early in the morning and they make me look awake with those big lashes that actually don't look good once. I leave fox when you're not used to wearing that makeup. It's very very heavy. Well they'll tell you they would never put this makeup on you unless you were going on t._v. It's not the type of makeup they do for even for your wedding right. It'd be very different right <hes> so when i come home absolutely my husband does not think i look amazing which is funny because when you're on t._v. You do look amazing amazing. They know what they're doing but in person it's not. I actually take it off very quickly because i'm also worried about <hes> breaking out. Totally i call it deboning. That's what i used to haul it because it was like oh my gosh you look like a playboy bunny but not in the best ways that said thomas now i think he's so used to it because he works at foxtail and sees all the women in in their lashes in their makeup that he'll be like no. You look fine but i think it's from a distance. What is it like a monet from a distant far far from good head. Yes crazy 'cause now at h._d. Cameras it's like it's it's what they have to do to kind of pop your features and and smoothed everything out because it doesn't if you don't cover it it doesn't hide and then with hair. One thing that everyone can do at home that i learned from them is teasing teasing. Oh the backcomb right. You just need to buy that teasing comb which is like a couple dollars. Conair c._b._s. makes all the difference does so. Do you tease everyday. I gotta be honest. I feel like i will when i remember but it's never really got to get in there. Don't you ryan not really with the right comb you. Shouldn't you know when you back home. It's just a couple hits and you should be good to go and then spray it with a little hairsprayed and it'll stay back or does you're going i it's so i tried to do it this morning and i feel like it falls out by the end like my hair's not brea no not at homes night the yeah either dry texture dry shampoo apu or hairspray like anything to get gritty <hes> but i'm sure again you want to minimize be careful yet and there's there's a balance at fox their <unk>. Sometimes i'll ask them not to tease it too much because when you think of fox when we worked there ten years ago they would have like the big hair care and they're very good <hes> about like working gene with women like me in making ourselves. Look you full but professional and not going overboard. That's the thing i think that there has to be a balance between <hes> how about between the helmet hair that sometimes you'll see and <hes> you know really appreciate the fact that there are younger women and and playing up that youthful beauty that is still elegant the last time i saw you. I handed you hair extensions for your wedding my gosh i had no idea what i was doing. How did that go. Oh well. Did you see pictures. They were amazing.

Friend of Sebastian. Oh my gosh. You are smooth. I know why they hired you to be president. We are very excited. You are. You're doing some amazing things. I'm just gonna ask the big tough question. When Ronald Reagan became president. There was a rebirthing. There was a flourishing of conservative ideas, conservative institutions, we filled the content of Reaganism with bright, shiny, new ideas. Bright, not not bright colors, not dull colors. What are the challenges today for the conservative movement? We we broke the system with this. I Kana classic non-politician in two thousand sixteen. What is the heavy lifting to be done by people in heritage and people who support heritage and people who just love this country. The toughest problem. We have today you are tackling better than anyone else on the planet. Then that is waking up our those you mentioned Ronald Reagan, and the successes that we had after that. And you know, he is beloved among the conservative movement. But at the end of the day, I think we got a little sleepy. I think we got a little apathetic. I think we thought that the battle was one. And then we got apathetic, and when we got sleepy, and when we got tired they woke up then grew and they got strong. And so, you know, Reagan taught us that freedom is only more no more than one generation away from big lost and every generation has to fight. And so we have to wake up our movement, which you are doing like none other and we have to get back on the. Battlefield and fight. Well, it's very kind. Did you ever think K called James that as a person who lived through the Cold War who served numerous conservative presidents? Did you ever think that'd be a day where an incumbent president would have to address the congress and talk about us never being a socialist country. There are so many things that are happening in our country today that I never thought I would live to see I never thought that I would live to see a governor of the city states endorsed infanticide. I never thought I would see someone sitting in congress that says unabashedly that they are socialist. I never thought that I would see people have such a reckless disregard for the values and the principles that got us to where we are today our founding first principles, and you know, the thing that concerns me more than anything Sebastian. Most of this stuff happened on my watch happened during my adult years growing up in this country, and I always use I absolutely refuse as I go into my seventies to think about leaving. In America to my grandchildren. Let us less free than the one I inherited. And so I think it's incumbent upon all of us who has seen this change take place in America who'd up get back on the battlefield and fight. So this is a message of re-energizing all of us. But there is this lingering criticism. We've had maybe a generation that our side the conservative movement has done a very very poor job in reaching out to those communities, the black communities Hispanic communities that by by dint of tradition should be on our side given that values, but that we haven't reached out to institutionally Keiko's James is that a fair criticism. And if so how do we fix it? You know, I think it is a very fair criticism there all four sectors of the American demographics that I think we as conservatives must win. We must win back. Our youth and snatch them back as they try to draw them into socialism. We must win back the minorities of this country who was suffering most under the liberal policies. We must reach out to the women of this country who they have targeted with their nonsense, and we must win back social elites as conservative. I absolutely up horse identity politics, and what I'm talking about is the mirror opposite of that. I want to bring us back together, and we should come together. And join around this great American ideal. So I wanna draw all of those demographics back. To this wonderful ideal this wonderful American exceptional country that they are trying to divide and conquer. We've got we've got some heavy lifting to do we we do. Indeed. But with heritage we will get in the last minute, we have left. What do you say to those who leery of the conservative movement and who say we're heartless, we don't care. It's all about profit. We don't care about the dispossessed. What would your message to them be Keiko's, James? Well, you may or may not know your listeners may or may not know, but I grew up in poverty in Richmond Virginia, and the public housing projects to born to a welfare mom, I have seen firsthand what works, and what doesn't work and one of the reasons that I'm a conservative today is I know that the policies that we have caused human flourishing lift people up give them opportunity give them freedom.

"Statistics. And Heritage Foundation statistics. I will check statistics from the American Enterprise Institute, and I will check I will check statistics from the Brookings institute. So try to try to get a wide variety. If you can. Conor says what is the Jewish read on the third commandment about not taking God's name in vain. So in halacha in Jewish law. You're not supposed to use God's name when you're not making a Brooklyn or not making a blessing because the idea is that your degrading his name, but on a conceptual level. I like Dennis Prager take on this Dennis Prager take on. This is that if you say that God is in favor of something that God has not himself said he is in favor of then you are taking his name in vain perverting what he wants and making it your own. And that's that's a real act of deep evil. Granada says, hey, hey, Lord. Ben interesting. I'm writing to you because one of my classes, one of my fellow students brought up the Nordic countries have all these social welfare programs and how much better they are. So I felt the need to speak up and brought up the issue that people making over sixty K our tax about fifty percent, depending on which country you are in their response. What's who cares? You don't need that much. Anyway, when the government is taking care of X on top of that the professor then stepped in and said, obviously, they're doing something right there since they are consistently ranked as some of the happiest countries in the world. So my question to you is how would you have? Bonded to that situation. Not gonna lie. Folded a little under pressure since it seemed like it was me versus the whole glass. Well, it's it's very hard when everybody's attacking you. But here's the reality in order for them to determine whether it is in fact, socialism that has made these countries happy you'd have to look at their happiness ratings and their social standing before these countries had piled the bunch of socialist welfare programs on top of capitalist base. So look back to the forties and fifties and sixties, and it turns out these countries were already some of the happiest on earth. It turns out that the Nordic countries already had great healthcare that the Nordic countries already had a good economy that they had all of these things before you start attacking on top third way Nordic socialism. There's a great book called what number number forget the name of the book recommended on the on the program before debunking utopia is the name of the book, and it was written by a guy who is from Norway. And he let me I'm gonna look up the name of Nema sundown. Gee, that's his name recommended on the show before he talks about all of these myths. It's called exposing them. Nordic socialism. Well worth the read he talks Pacific -ly about the fact that prior to the advent of all of these social welfare programs, everything was going pretty well in these places before they already had high levels of social cohesion. Bottom line is this when you have a society where they're very high levels of social cohesion, virtually any system will work well for a time for a time, but only for a time meaning that they've only been trying this for a couple of decades it actually his tamped down economic growth in a large number of these countries. And remember if the United States were to destroy its own economy on the shores of redistributionism, there's going to be a lot of foreign investment into the United States. If we change our economic system to make it less friendly to business. There's not going to be a lot of entrepreneurialism. There's not going to be a lot of growth and everybody likes to talk about how healthcare and other countries is great who do you think pays for the development of all the medical devices and drugs like a huge number of the patents. The majority of patents on planet earth are coming from the United States in the healthcare system, we pay premium for that. But it's also why most of these big healthcare companies are based in the United States. The healthcare without without American.

Because you the mothership of conservativism here in America. But we need you here as your former Armagh guy. Right. So it was in the army for twenty five years is actually an artillery officer, Tillery soy, you still. You can still hear what I'm saying. How could you have been in the alternative, and that is quite incredible? Yeah. Mostly because like I did with missiles, and we didn't fire those very much got it. Is a graduate of West Point. And he is the man on national security the heritage. And that's why we want to talk to him about two big things the president and his policies with regards to the Middle East, especially Syria, and then our second segment. He's graciously agreed to stay for two segments. We're gonna talk about the border, and what's the national security? Take the politics out of it. The shop down and Nancy and her boss and everything else. And let's talk about the the national security aspects of the border, Jim as the man heritage responsible for national security is the president right with regards to Syria. Are you worried about the future of the Middle East? If we take out those two thousand marines, what is Jim Califano's take on the Trump doctrine, she'll let me start with the criticism and then move on because I 'cause I don't want what I think is actually legitimate criticism to to get confused with where we on the policy. Nobody knows this better than you. Do the president is an unconventional statesman politician. He's not a politician. Right. Human ever made. And that's fine. And and that's who he is. He's always been that. He'll never change at an and he uses it with great effectiveness. And and I I think nobody has a right to tell me can't do that on the other hand the president is also the commander in chief. And as the commander in chief. It's response he has his responsible. He doesn't have to do it. Personally, you could tweet once, but he's responsible to make sure that his government speaks with a clear and consistent voice to friends, and enemies. And I do think in the the rolling out of the president's Syria policy that a legitimate legitimate criticism to say the presence that we're doing this. And there was no explanation of how are we doing this? How are we going to protect America's interest house makes sense? And I think there was a lot of friction and misunderstanding which. I would not have happened. You know, if if if the rollout had been more conventional now, there's the question of packaging and messaging lets you we have an issue with that. Let's talk about the content. Right. Let's let's put that aside. 'cause I offer in the president. I understand how he got there. And that's important for people. Remember, why were we in Syria to begin with? And it's because when Trump came into office he said, we are not defeating ISIS fast enough ISIS is declared a caliphate. That's not just a a territorial claim that's a historical claim that history has changed that the moment of the the Islamist wising has happened and thirty thousand foreign fighters from around the world listening to that clarion. Call poured into the Middle East, creating mayhem and murder and rape. And and Trump says that has to stop we have to destroy the physical caliphate, not just a military defeat, but a massive psychological defeat. We're not gonna kill every guy guy nicest, but we have to spread the organization. The wind. So it's not a global power anymore. And and the military went back and said, do you know, they probably didn't say, dude. We can't do that. Unless you never know with Mattis. He might have said unless we physically put a footprint on the ground in Syria and the president said, okay. Right. And in a year, we aqap we we did that task. And then the president's. Okay. Why are we still there with the mission is done that particular task is does this is this is this is really important for for people to understand how the president thinks there are no sacred cows for him just because something has been done a certain way for ten years twenty s he says he asked the question. So what is it the right way? And you are so right to identify. And it's actually Steve Bannon gets the credit. He he he came up with the phrase the physical caliphate in the White House. And we said that's our objective crush the physical caliphate. So six months ago when when the physical caliphate have been crushed the president asked the commonsense question, why are we still here? Right. And you know, we should be leaving. And there was a lot of press about that. And I think fairly people came back and said, well, we've got some legitim-. Issues, you know, when we leave. We don't want to repeat what Obama did we don't want to leave a back that creates more problems, right? We don't want the promises of serious spillover, destabilize Iraq or Jordan. You know, we don't want to leave space of ISIS can come back. We don't wanna have tens of thousands more refugees pouring out into the Middle East in the western Europe. We don't wanna have Israel and around come, you know, lock horns in a war. And and the president rightly shut, okay, I hear you you need more time. How much time do you need, and they said six months and the president said, okay. And then when the six months or up, the president went back, and you know, and not wanting to essentially be slow roll by own government said dudes. Did you hear what I said you said you need six months? I gave you six months we are moving on any any basically did that publicly because he wanted the bureaucracy to understand that that that it was time to change now on the remarkable thing is Jim thank you for reminding us. Everybody forgets to mention what he said six months ago. Right. And and you know, again in his okay, there's not a time line. The president can say we're going to be out by this date. He didn't repeat the mistake of Afghanistan and say there's a time like your he didn't give the plan away. Say this is exactly what we're going to do. So the bad guys. Good guys. We're doing okay, all that is kind of justifies, you know, why it's appropriate for the president's gonna bang is putting the tables that do it's time to start to move to the next stage. But the, but what we didn't know weeks ago when the president said that is how does that unraveled, and what is clear is in the ensuing weeks? Whether the administration has put started to put together, the pieces of a plan that begin to reassure those of us who have a legitimate concern that we don't want to have a permanent footprint Syria forever. That makes no sense. But how are we gonna dress shoes? Like, we don't want to -tarian catastrophe. We don't want to destabilize his neighbors. We still want to be able to go after ISIS. We don't want. The Israelis Iranians have a war in Syria. Do we have the bits and pieces in place to do that? And increasingly I think we're being reassured that that is being done. And I think that is all to the president's credit. But. Good one more thing on the table here. Thirty seconds. Why it's important to do that is because if we just sat there, which is what a lot of people wanted to do for no strategic outcome someday. We would have another Khobar Towers or Lebanon barracks. Mogadishu at where a lot of people died. And then people say, why are we here and the answer would be it's all Trump's fault. So he did the right thing he made a tough choice, and he doesn't get credit for that. And again, he's doing that. Which he said he wanted to do all along, which is to have our partners be able to fight their wars and to have us help them. So it's about capacity building as we call it in the Pentagon when I was listening to me, Sebastian Gorka in America first, and we are talking to none other than James tariff.
