Because it's fairly well known jazz song but they didn't know nigeria backwards got. It woke to another one from this week. is i think an example of a question that sabah straightforward as they get But i think it was asked in an interesting way so the question was an individual named naphtali. Bennett ascended to his current position on june thirteenth. Twenty twenty one succeeding. Whom and of course the correct answer is benjamin netanyahu. But it's more fun to get that answer that way rather than another much easier way you could put it than like who was the israeli prime minister on june twelfth. Twenty twenty one. Can you recall what you were how that question came about. Yeah so that question came about so. That's pretty straightforward current events. Question right and so. I like to have a few of those. Just reward people who are kind of paying attention to the news. But that's a two step question which sometimes can kind of be a minefield because you know step one. Here's the answer but it's to step questions. You have to recognize the second steps much easier than the i really but but the key to. That question really is recognizing the name naftali bennett right. If you know who that is the you know the answer almost surely right. There's a lot of people that know holly bennett but don't know who succeeded. But that's kind of the the wrinkle to the question. I don't want you to just know israel. I don't want you to just know. Benjamin netanyahu i want you to be able to connect all those things together and only by doing all those things. Can you arrive at the right answer. So it's more of like a garden path than just a hit. I wonder could you share a couple of questions that you were particularly proud of..

"Com and the Odyssey happen. I also believe that President Biden should have a cognitive test. I agree with my colleague Ronnie Jackson, who has demanded a cognitive test of the president. He had to perform one for President Trump when he was president. Trump's doctor Lauren Bulb, Bert that pistol, saying We need to have some medical certitude. Is there an issue with the man who currently bears the title? President of the United States? The former chief medical advisor to President Trump agrees now congressman from Texas Ronnie Jackson. I think we're going to have alarm above it on the show tomorrow, but I heartily agree, especially after today's press conference. Another reason you need to have a cognitive test. As if you believe you can trust the Iranian. Somebody who knows better is the author of the soon To be released. The more you preorder it, the sooner I get to read it. It's sledgehammer how breaking with the past brought peace to the Middle East by President Trump's personal ambassador, Personal representative to Israel, David Friedman. Ambassador Friedman. Let's talk about that issue of Iran. It sounds up your Al. It just sounds commonsensical in the ultimate analysis, but Why would you aid and a bet regimes that are Dictatorships that are theocracies and who is a part of their ideological underpinning? Wish to destroy America and her allies. Well, you know, it's a great question. I think the better question is why would you do it twice, right? I mean, because they did it. They they did it the first time in 2015. And you know they had this aspirational, Uh, hope that you know, If you just sort of let Iran back into the community of nations, they were self modulates. And then we saw what they did with all the billions of dollars of cash they didn't use it to build schools or build hospitals. They used it to buy ballistic missiles and to foment terror across the across the crescent from Yemen to Syria to Iraq to, uh to Lebanon. So we've seen this movie before the first time. You know, I was kind of, you know, fool me once, but now we're getting we're getting for the second time and that really is inexcusable. So you know, having now seen the movie and understanding what Iran does when they get money and having seen the outcome of this farce of an election where the absolutely worst person could have been selected, handpicked The Sony election by harmony. I don't see any purpose. In doing this. It just strengthens our the strongest state sponsor of terrorism in the world, and it's I'm at a loss to understand what the what the rationality as an insider's. The ultimate insider, is a friend of President Trump before he became president, as his representative in in our closest ally in Israel, Talk to us about The effect of the Trump administration's policy on weakening that murderous regime. Well, look, you know, uh, around like every other country needs needs currency. Uh, you have getting money to build weapons to foment terror. And we can Iran tremendously. I don't think Iran has ever been in such a weak state and When you have an enemy like Iran, That's what you want. You want them weekend? I mean, we're not gonna We're not going to change Iran One architect, convince them to change their ways. We don't have the ability, you know to go in there and bringing created democracy. So all we can do is keep them week until the Iranian people themselves are able to change their the regime. And, uh, you know, it's as simple as do you want your enemy strong or do you want your enemy week? We have the capacity. To keep Iran weekend for some reason, Um, you know, we seem to think that strengthening them. It makes sense. Now, they'll say well, We get an agreement for it. You don't have an agreement, The agreement was was worthless. The agreement did not allow the United States or anybody else to inspect and brown. Ambassador Friedman. We lost you there for a second. Yeah, they greet the agreement didn't do anything to stop them. Really? Nothing. It's into anything. It didn't provide any meaningful inspection rights. It didn't keep them honest. And we knew from the great work of the Massad that you know The entire premise of the agreement was a fraud, but they defrauded the world. No one seems to mind but, you know Most people when they get defrauded. They don't go out back and do business with the same people. But that doesn't seem to bother. The United States were right under this regime. We're almost out of time. But quick question. You mentioned that amazing briefing the Massad back briefing BB gave on what really happened to Iran and its nukes. Talked to us in the last 30 seconds. People are worried BBS out of office. Do they need to be worried? Don't think so. I mean, I think the Israeli the Israeli people are a are sent to right people. I think the Israeli government is going to pursue the similar policies to Isn't it funny? How government And I think between then after Holly Bennett and get on, sire and Avigdor Lieberman, you've got people who are very much a security conscious, defense conscious. Look, I think we should always worry about Israel's security. First, they live in some part of the world. But I don't think that the current government puts Israel at any greater We will always have a special relationship is my Orthodox friend Jeff taught me two nations closely linked Why Israel the greatest nation made by God.

"In Israel Now Certainly, things have have gone from bad to worse over the last Several weeks, but it always seems that they're always on the verge of forming a new government. And somehow prime Minister Bet Benjamin Netanyahu continues to hang on. Michael Bauer is here with the latest he's watches that for NBC radio news. Good morning, Michael. Thank you for joining us this morning. Tell us what's the latest Grow up in 25 years, Joe. It looks like there could be a chance here that Benjamin Netanyahu might be taken down as Israel's prime minister, youngest ever prime minister by the way, 25 years ago. So on Sunday, the anniversary of that first win back in 1996. Netanyahu addressed the country's He faces the possibility of the end of his political career after his former lieutenant, That's Holly Bennett announced that he would join with opposition leader Yeah, your lip eed to form a new government. Now this goes back to what largely has been a failed election will call it a consequential election for sure. But certainly an election unless that was giving Netanyahu an opportunity to put together a governing coalition after he lost back in March with this election now that ability was not seen through by Netanyahu couldn't come up with a conclusive element to creating this brand new coalition with other people in other parties, and thus the president, the figurehead president in Israel. Turn that task over to the opposition. This case Bennett so Bennett is now working with repeat. Bennett is somebody who has been welcomed by a surprising cross section of left wing and right wing Israeli. He largely represents the right wing there and then repeat who had the centrist party is somebody who's trying to form a coalition with at least eight different political parties that run that political spectrum from left wing the right way. Between the two of them tried to cover all sorts of ground here, and if they can get to the point where they feel like they've got a legitimate organization that they could put into place. They'll make that pitch to the 120 seat Parliament in Israel, and if they can get at least this support of 61 members of that parliament than Parliament would have to vote in favor of the new government within one week. And that could, in essence removed Benjamin Netanyahu from the position of prime minister of Israel, and that would start this brand new realm of government again, clearly going to be an issue and you're looking at all the political backgrounds. They're trying to cover under two people representing them, but this is the closest thing that they've seen in this is something they have to get done via. Literally late tomorrow night. If they get this done by late tomorrow night, they can. They can make the pitch. Israel's parliament. Get those 61 members on board. They can, In essence, kick out, Benjamin Netanyahu's prime minister, begin their new rate. You know, just looking at this from afar and not following this closely, It appears that these different political parties, these different political factions really agree on nothing except for one thing, and that is that they really want to change at the top After after all of this time, it's it's time for Mr Netanyahu go that It seems as as I look at it that that's about the only thing they really have Agreement on. I think that's certainly a big part of it. I think you see a number of Israelis feeling kind of the same way. You know. Some political scientists say the worst name toe having an election is then there too long, and it almost looks like Benjamin Netanyahu has kind of filling that void right now. 25 years, there's some Israelis who were just saying, I don't know what would happen over the next four years with a change in hand, but we want to see that change happens. Yeah, I think that is that's interesting. Any. Where's the Biden administration on this that we have. We've seen them weighing it all on this. Are they trying to take a hands off approach and not get involved in a domestic situation in Israel right now? I think for the most part, they've They've shown support for Benjamin Netanyahu specifically on the heels of this cease fire and what happened with the past couple of weeks, but for the most part as it pertains to the election their questions because they're distancing themselves from a guy in Benjamin Netanyahu's still facing charges over corruption in regards to Israel, whether or not they were bribery charges against him, So there's all kinds of questions on that front that I don't know how politically Aligned Divide administration. Be with that, as there's this kind of upheaval going on in Israel. And, of course, Mr Netanyahu really aligned himself with Donald Trump and House Republicans. And there's a There's a real backlash in the Democratic Party. I don't know exactly where the Biden administration is on this, but they're certainly the members of Democratic Congress who are who are not Netanyahu.

"Bones or high candidates, you Hewitt. Today to a new president. President Biden is in the offing. The United States Capitol has got 35,000 troops in National Guard in its state Capitol protests have been very small. All the state capitals are under heavy guard. The FBI has moved on alleged members of extremist group oath keepers. Three percenters. And other friends organizations believed have had something to do with the storming of the capital last week. In other headlines, Phil Specter, famed music producer and convicted murderer dead at 81. Industrial production. United States rose a solid 1.6% in December. Covered 19 vaccines were getting stuck at the last step. This is not operation warp speeds. Failure. It is. The failure of state and local governments had one job and boy, most of them have screwed it up. Team Bine is signaling they will cancel the Keystone XL oil project permit, which I believe will lead to some very interesting litigation having to do with the administrative state in reliance damages, and I believe this new Supreme Court Would be on the side of certainty and property rights, investment and reliance. We will see The Wall Street Journal inveighing in against Joe Biden's first spending blowout. Remember that the rules of the Senate requires 60 votes for the president elects new program to move on anything will require at least 10 Republicans. Maybe 11 12 as moderate Democrats will defect on some of this Including a $15 an hour minimum wage, which is truly terrible idea, But there's a deal to be done here. I also believe that it's very shrewd. Introduce immigration reform because that splits the Republican Party, among so called wets like me, who favor sweeping regularization of everyone in the country without permission, provided they're not associated with violence. Provided they're not given citizenship rights of voting. But getting the underground economy above ground makes a lot of sense to me, provided that we finish the border wall. That's always been the deal. I mean, I've been for this for 18 years. It's not news for you people. I do believe There's an opportunity here and Joe Biden is smart. The secret Russian opposite opposition leader Alexei Navalny returned to Russia yesterday. The man just has got courage. All the virtues matter, But courage is the virtue without which no other virtuous possible. He was immediately arrested. Jake Sullivan, the incoming national security adviser, and I believe the key player In team. Biden and a smart guy has called for his release immediately as I'm sure Ambassador O'Brien has already done privately, China's economy has expanded at a faster rate than before the coronavirus, according to the Financial Times. 6.5% in the fourth quarter. That's what the ability to well people in their homes do during a virus outbreak. Look, I think we have to confront the idea that China well, not intentionally unleashing the virus on the world realize that once and it done so there was competitive advantage to be gained and gained it. They did. The Chinese Communist Party is his Leninists is any is ruthless is any and we have to begin to understand them. Also, the March 23rd elections, which are approaching in Israel are going to be decided on the religious right. If you're not reading the times of Israel, you ought to be Netanyahu has no coalition without not Holly Bennett. Neither does Gideon Saar left. Holly Bennett may be the most important man other than Netanyahu in American in Israeli politics. And unbelievably Netanyahu rival Gideon Saar has hired the Lincoln Project. Immediately after the disgrace of one of the Lincoln projects. Founders. I won't go into John Weaver's fall. It's It's unfortunate. Demons have long tormented that man. He's long been A nasty and cruel figure in American politics. And now I think we know why he's a tormented man. But the Lincoln Project is not exactly political genius. It is the team responsible largely for Governor, Sarah Palin, Zella vacation to John McCain and John McCain's team. So if they want to run a 2008 Republican presidential campaign bio mean going higher the Lincoln Project In the Telegraph. Boris Johnson is hailing. Miles started the vaccination race. 5.6 million more invited to get jab. People over 70 should be all in hand. It is likely that Joe Biden's expected pick of Gary Against Slur to lead the Security and Exchange Commission is going to mean increased in serious regulation of that era. My phone number is 1 805 to 1234. I'd like to know what you think about my new Washington Post column. The title of which Mitch McConnell, still the crucial Republican leader. It reads. Senator Mitch McConnell will remain majority leader until noon on January 20. With the inauguration of President elect Joe Biden. At that moment, McConnell will then become the equal and influence of any minority leader in Senate history. No doubt he is already planning how to wield that power for the GOP and the good of the country. As I've noted before rule of law, conservatives owe an enormous debt to McConnell for protecting the Constitution and its separation of powers checks on administrative agencies. And robust individual rights, particularly those of free exercise of religion, speech and property. In 2016. McConnell refused to be railroaded by the chattering classes into consenting to President Barack Obama's filling of the Supreme Court vacancy caused by the death of Justice Anthony Scalia. Again. Defying liberals condemnation, McConnell joined with Ensign, Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley and 2018. And Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham and 2020 in guiding Supreme Court nominations of justice is Brett Cabin on Amy Cockney Barrett to confirmation. McConnell is also kept the laser focus on the appointments of appeals court judges, ensuring that the constitution's protections of American freedoms will be preserved for decades. McConnell is, as I have written the indispensable man to the GOP because of his canny, farsighted understanding about legislative and political processes. Under McConnell's tent, every Republican colleague will be heard and, of course, thrashed out. Is any serious center right Conservative should. McConnell keeps an ideologically diverse caucus together, valuing Senator Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Mitt Romney of Utah as much as he does any three among the most conservative senators. Over the coming months and the Democrat controlled Senate. McConnell will know when the yield the 60 votes necessary to the new president's program and when to rally the Republican caucus to oppose excess. With National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman Rick Scott. McConnell will help recruit and equipped candidates who can regain a GOP majority in 2022. Threw up in the media analyst of Underestimated McConnell's ability to win elections. Most recently in November. Accountable had his cock. It's in the minority for now, but this consummate master of the Senate can be expected to lead the institution again, perhaps into you more year time. Other Republican voices will matter. A great deal. Of course. National security soon to be former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. And national security adviser Robert C. E. O Bryan will help steer the party as a whole. Domestic policy governors Rhonda Sentence of Florida Doug Ducey of Arizona, Greg Abbott of Texas are examples of successful Republican governance both in times of crisis and times of growth. The House GOP is full of GOP promise. The leadership team of minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, California representative Steve's Police have a little bit Louisiana, Liz Cheney of Wyoming, Tom Emmer of Minnesota. Will be poised to help Republicans retake the house in the 2020 mid terms of redistricting follows its historic its historical path. Following the party that holds the majority in most state legislative chambers, which the GOP does easily. The only thing that can deeply injured the Republicans is division. And the party's unity is essential in an increasingly unstable era at home and abroad, Quote All periods of history are periods of transition, but some are more transitional than others, wrote Lord Robert Blake in his magisterial biography of Benjamin Disraeli. Blake was referring to the years of political upheaval in Britain between the two reform acts of 18 32 and 18 67, a 35 year period. He could have been describing the past few decades the past several years, in particular in the United States when the world has undergone a period of transition, quote Maura Transitional than others..

Can you hear me? I'll bet you that his I'll bet you that his mute button is on Doctor. Now, there you are. Are you there? We've had kind of interference, and I'm like I'm here. Okay? I'm looking at the opinion polling for the March election, which shows Likud no lower than 27. No higher than 31. Do you expect those numbers to move much? Do you expect me to move up? And are you going to be a part of the Likud list? I will not. Will you be a part of any list? I don't think so. As of today. Uh, there's a little bit of a chance, if not much. No, I think that People are running are going with people are incon. If it least I am currently not in committed, so maybe extend around. My guess is huge. This election will not be any more conclusive than the previous three rounds. The reason is that the two camps were pretty much evenly divided. But they're both camps on the right. Correct. That is a big difference in previous elections, and it will weaken in Alishan because he's always able to cast his opponent is being less this. But you're not going to be able to cast in this Holly Bennett and get on stars left because they're actually to the right politically. Our baby. In fact, matters historically listen now is not adopted many right wing policies. So there's Yemen A and Israeli betting you and there who are the likely allies of Likud and a coalition. Well right now they're saying nobody would say all will never go with B. B, but that's a penny can sit in the last elections and he ended up going with B. So it's election is not conclusive again. That's now will try to wean and pry off some of these parties from the inside. You can't join this coalition. That's what it was. Betty can't flashback. He'll try to do it again. But the fact that matters you you know I'm going today in another hour. I'm going to my second vaccinations. This entire country will be vaccinated by mid March. You know what's happening in mid March, the only election And we're gonna be the first country and earth to be completely vaccinated. That much credit is due to our national health system, which is excellent. But the fact that matter is this prime minister that on the phone and wouldn't let the CEO of fires, you know, rest wouldn't CEO of Maturing arrested. He brought five million vaccinations. That's amazing. And people is this economy begins recovers. People come out from there from there Lockdowns people going to say, Well, you know, I got a wife back with my own two. And, uh, you know, the answer is gonna be for many of those people, Benjamin it now so among the other conservative parties, which one can you never imagine joining a Likud led coalition cause he'll be the one that the prime minute that the president turns to hell have by far the most seats. Don't have the first opportunity to join the government who is most likely to do the dance. If nobody, I tell you why, because there's a left wing party, but there's seven left wing parties. One Lesson party. John, listen this colorless and you think that they would never join that coalition. You know, both get on Starr and Holly Bennett. We're heading there right wing parties. Ostensibly detested, Benjamin it and now they had a terrible history with him. But that doesn't mean that you know that at the end of the day when high profile jobs are being offered to them like foreign minister, defense minister that they're going to resist the temptation Now shots and you take G will join the could correct Literature, But they're they're they're easy Coalition partners because they really want everyone to things. They want a funding for their religious schools for the shivers, and they want the status call to be maintained in Israel. What's the status quo? That's an agreement struck. By Ben Glory in 70 years ago with the religious parties said that the religious norms that were observed back in the late 19 forties will continue to be absorbed. That means That while there is public transportation in a limited way in Tel Aviv is none in Jerusalem. That means that army keeps kosher. That means that the national holidays are the Jewish holidays. That's the status quo. Many people are secular, don't want the status quo they might down Busses introduced the Busses. Another country, another city that don't have the month a lot. But that is a crucial issue for the ultra Orthodox parties. Now, doctor. In the most important question Israel has faces in Iran that is beginning its reconstruction of its nuclear program in an obvious provocative way. Will that be allowed to continue by Israel? We can't. It's not even a question. This is the ability to defend itself. Well, you mon acquired nuclear weapons. And we're not completely right post. He took the dead march through back.

"Now, life Tel-Aviv, Israel, a reporter does the job the rest of the media refused to do. It's Aaron client in festive with journalist and bestselling author Aaron Klein. I know that a lot of right now are probably a little bit surprised if not a lot surprised by what happened in Israel. In other words, the country, of course, going to new elections. Just a few weeks, after I just got back from Israel with the current elections. Now, I'm a little bit less surprised because actually I was in Israel week and a half ago and I met with different people from close to the ruling party. And I was also told that the coalition talks with you do in out of control, and that elections were a real possibility. But even when I was told that I sort of I was like, oh, come on. You know, I'm sure they'll pull together. He coalition at the end of the day, but they did it and the reason they did it is because of one man and one man only, and that is his name is a victory Lieberman. There's no other reason for Israel going to elections right now other than Avigdor Lieberman and his total hatred personal hatred for the prime minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu. I mean, the whole thing is madness. And Isreaeli voters really deserve better. And by the way, is really voters across the political spectrum both left and right. I think they all deserve better, the country deserves better and whatever Lieberman has just done is totally despicable. Now here's a little bit of history. Let's go back just a few weeks, actually, and then we'll go back a little bit longer a few weeks ago, as you know, there were elections BB one in other words, not just be in fact, the big story of this past election. Was that the Israeli voters have skewed to the rights, you have the, the left wing parties merits, totally devastated running on a two-state solution. You have sippy Livni who had to bail out with our party running on a two state solution. You have the labor party, which used to be the one of the one of the top two parties for a long time. The top party in Israel associated with the two states Lucien, but trying to change that they are show, a shadow of their former selves, with just like a few seats. That's the left, then you had the quote unquote center in Israel that ran against or wouldn't even talk about the two states will do they? Did well because there is a very real center in Israel unquestionably. But then you have where the rest of the Israeli voters are. And in fact, the plurality and that is on the right and also the religious rights, and then you had a Victor Lieberman who claims that he is a nationalist any populace. But actually, he has been a bringing down right wing governments for oh about fifteen years. So that's what you just had was an election in which the Israeli voters went to the polls, and what they did was they voted for the right largely the center. Yes. But the center could not concoct a coalition with the left and they rejected a coalition with BB. So you had the BB beebees party with the religious parties and Lieberman. But the bottom line of this past election was that the right wing, clearly was more in the majority. No matter where you're coming from politically, that you have to agree that, that is what just happened in Israel in this last election, then you had a. Claiming he's right wing, and then also running saying that he would not form a party a coalition with the center, quote unquote, but instead would only form a coalition with BB, then you have for those of you who don't know the micro issues, but Lieberman just took a micro issue that's very important by the way, which is not just drafting the Oltra orthodox into the Israeli defense forces, but actually a specific, we're not going to get into the nitty gritty but there was a Bill and the Bill would put quotas and the question becomes who determines the quotas for who within the orbit, how many every year from the ultra orthodox parties and population would be drafted. That's not, not as relevant, as what you need to know here, which is that Victor Lieberman, would not budge one centimeter, one centimeter, this same Lieberman. Who had no problem off, and on for the last twenty years forming coalitions with the ultra orthodox and an ally himself with them all the sudden now that. Hit the Russians that have been, you know. Originally from that area of the world, and he has his party, originally was for Russians living in Israel. But what happened over the last ten fifteen years with the Russian community in Israel is that they're nail very integrated into his early society, and they don't they no longer vote. You know, Lieberman's our savior. We're gonna vote for a Russian party. No. They vote for wherever they are. So LeBron sort of needed a new base. And what he did was aligned with the nationalist, right-wing elements that are anti religious. And so the same Lieberman that had no problem joining with Oltra orthodox parties off, and on, for many years, all of a sudden wouldn't budge one inch on this antibody on this Bill about religious being drafted into the idea. Now, by the way, I have my own ideas, and you might be surprised by them. I do believe that the orthodox absolutely should serve in the Israeli military, but will put that aside for a minute. This wasn't about that. The fact that Lieberman wouldn't budge at all. Whereas by the way, the ultra orthodox agreed to beebees. Floating proposals Lieberman wouldn't even take one. Comma or period from the proposal that he initially outlined. So clearly this was about something else. So BB couldn't form a coalition because of either them in wouldn't budge in other words generated, I believe eight total crisis so that could not for me government. As a side note, by the way. Do you know why BB had to have a narrow coalition of sixty something seats? We lying on a veto Lieberman, who is not reliable, actually, the answer is in part, because remember enough tally Bennett, the head of National Religious Party, he splintered, and then tried very I think arrogantly to form his own party. And then he, he almost crossed the threshold to get into the Knesset. We're talking here about like. A few thousand votes. I think that he was off. But because he didn't cross the threshold all of those right wing votes, that would have been part of the Beebe coalition. They went totally to waste thrown into the garbage so therefore BB, had no choice. But for me, this tiny coalition and rely upon none other than his nemesis, for a long time of ignore Lieberman now, Lieberman, by the way, has a long history of doing this. First of all, he did this in two thousand and thirteen Netanyahu formed, a government with the center left to exclude, the ultra-orthodox parties. But what happened was Lieberman destabilize the coalition, and eventually toppled, because Lieberman then you go back in the past actually to several times. Where BB had to call new elections. In two thousand fifteen actually he refused to serve in Tanya, whose government, but then joined as defense, minister, and the whole reason, by the way that Israel, even went to elections this past year was because Lieberman gave up his performance, Ella defense minister, purportedly, right? Yeah, we're supposed to believe he gave it up because he was protesting Gaza. Guess what he was about to join government again as defense minister. Well, where was the protests over Gaza now? They have bodily personal animosity because well, I don't wanna get into the reasons because I they've never really made it public. But obviously the relationship something personally happened between the two and so Lieberman has some problems here. But, you know, the one thing that is clear and you don't need to be right wing left wing just an outside observer, is that Victor Lieberman was not acting in a way that made sense for the situation, meaning what for whatever reasons. But the reasons we're not the please. I don't think that it was a, a crisis over just this Bill. Because again, he didn't even budge one centimeter and negotiations you drop. He didn't do anything. So the question needs to be asked. Why Lieberman holding the entire Isreaeli public hostage now and sending the whole country back to totally unnecessary elections. Yes, bad faith between the two bad blood between the two but it seems that it was Lieberman. That is at full here for basically not forming a coalition, and it just doesn't make sense on the face of it. So the question becomes what's going to happen next? I think was likely thing is I don't know that centrist voters are going to really be motivated to get out. So I think that blue and white could have a serious problem here or some, I think that most of them will come out, but some might not right wing voters will not vote for for blue and white. We'll certainly not vote for the left. So what this is going to what's going to happen. I believe is number one by, of ignore Lieberman going to war on this specific issue of Oltra, orthodox, now what's going to happen is the whole Oltra orthodox population of Israel is going to be the most massive motivated, voters to get out and vote. Meaning the religious parties, I think, are going to explode in the next election, much larger than the already are that also is Likud. I think you know, in the last few hours of this last election BB was worn. Inning. And people sort of didn't believe it. He was like get out guys get out and vote because we really might lose this, it could really be tight, and then maybe some Likud voters didn't totally buy into that. Guess what he was one hundred percent. Right. It was very tight. So this election, I think Likud voters are going to specifically, also be massively motivated to vote. So I think what is going to happen here? Is that Lieberman's gonna lose the right? He is no longer. He cannot identify himself as a right winger after this. I think he will lose right wing voters, and they're going to go to Likud. I think also remember, I mentioned at the beginning, noth-, Holly Bennett started a party and didn't cross the threshold, those voters are not going to trust their votes again to Bennett. So they're going to go to loot. In other words, I think what's going to happen here, as BB will emerge a larger coalition. Of himself and the Likud party. And then with the Tra orthodox party. So, I think party, so I think what's going to happen here as BB walks away with a larger coalition than he had today..

"And it's coming to us get ready. We're joined online right now by Yaacob cats is editor in chief of the Jerusalem Post. He's also the co author of a couple of books weapon wizard in Israel versus Ron his new book is shadow strike inside. Israel's secret mission to eliminate Syrian nuclear power Jakko. Thanks for joining the bench show. Really appreciate it. And Cuban so Yakov what the hell is going on in Israel for those of us who are watching from abroad. We were under the impression that you guys just had an election and that prime minister Netanyahu, would retain the prime ministership and become the longest serving prime minister in Israel history that the coalition was inevitable that basically, everyone who's going to move on from the blue and white phenomenon. And now it seems you guys have just decided to have elections every other week or so what's going on. Well, if you thought you had a difficult and complicated in the US than your hundred percent right. With your question. What the hell's going on here because a lot of us are asking that right now, you're who won the last election. That's definitely what it seemed like. But as you know, been in Israel to coalition system. So even if you come out with the most seats in the parliament Intesa as Netanyahu tied with another party, but he then has to form a coalition and eat other party has become together with him. And in this case down to the wire yet till midnight last night, he failed to form a coalition. He just didn't have the parties that we're going to come in and sit with him. Party leaders at promise that they would there was one specifically beat or Lieberman, former defense minister who played in polls toyed with Netanyahu all along throughout the coalition negotiation process, and at the last thing, I'm not coming coming in, and then blocked with one alternative basically, which was to have the Knesset vote to disperse. It's basically the parliament committing suicide sending itself home in now, we go to new election. Well, what exactly was the sticking point for Lieberman who leads one of the parties in Israel had also been? It's his former defense minister, he had come to sort of an impasse with Netanyahu a couple years back. But what exactly was his excuse for not forming a coalition with Netanyahu this time? Lieberman. You're right. That was as a matter of fact, I'm at work click on Yahoo for decades. He wouldn't director-general back when Nintendo was the first term as prime minister in the nineteen ninety one minister back in two thousand nine people together for a long, long time. But this time it seems, I'll say it's a combination of a couple of factors. One is I think Lieberman so that this was not going to be good coalition. I clinical future, look at what happened to leaper minute. His political party over the years. She is just a Klein any went down ten feet, and they went down to six seats and then in this past election. He got only five and realize. Have to get something. And if opportunity we stand up stand up, so you'll orthodox parties, which had already basically said they're going to be inside Netanyahu's coalition. And they have the whole thing with the IDS Carnot's draft. That's when listened the RV and Lieberman on to that made bad maiming sue and said, if they don't serve in the army. According to the way, the letter of the law, exactly that everyone wants to put in a change of period that I'm not joining the coalition. They stood their ground. He stood his ground. So I think it's that number one number two, you did want to stick it to. He wanted to get back at him. And they, yes, they've worked together over many years, but they're also political rivals method out of what we're not playing. Well, that's now there will be a new election. Blue and white party was was narrowly defeated fairly broadly in the Knesset itself. As far as the coalition is, like a sixty five fifty five split, but as far as which party was going to be the largest who's very narrowly. Defeated by Likud party. What happens now? I mean everybody just voted five minutes ago, presumably Lieberman is calculating that Netanyahu will take the hit for a failure to form a government at this point. Can we expect it, basically, this is the end of Netanyahu's prime minister of Israel. No, not at all. Been I Mitch on Yahoo is still looking immediate media polls, number one. He's still on top. He's still being the blue and white has taken a bit of a hitter ready. They've proven just over the last few weeks. You realize position to the prime minister Netanyahu's main problem dollars criminal investigations against him jury to indict ending hearing that here in particular is now just a few weeks after September seventeenth election time at the end of Tober. So be interesting to see what comes of that. But he is very from. I mean, you know, you look around at the landscape, the political landscape in Israel. There's no one out there with the experienced task way that he can open any door in any capital around the world, whether it's Washington and Moscow pair name it, and I think that Israelis understand that. And that's why they probably will continue to vote for him. But, again the game in Israel's coalition game and only those partners. And now that Lieberman has made it clear that he's not in tiny overstock it. That's gonna make Netanyahu's coalition building effort after next estimate this coming election. Little more complicated a little more difficult. Do you think that are a bunch of parties in the last election, who were very narrowly, shutout of Knesset there? They're a couple of parties. They're expected to do much better than they did motion party. For example, was expected to better than it did in, in the Knesset race. There is a much ballyhooed party with with noth- Holly Bennett. And, and the former Justice minister of Israel, that was shut out of do you think that people are going to rethink their support for the bigger parties and say, listen, if you guys can form a coalition anyway? I'm just going to put my, my vote, where my heart is, and maybe some of those votes bleed away from the bigger parties. I think that people's immediate may be gut reaction as a we didn't get Bennett in. We didn't get circadian we into Fagel in on the running stand behind those parties. But I think at the end and the big takeaway on these from the selection of hunter failure to former coalition is the big problem is that you can have cooed part is thirty five seat and because of a tiny party with just five seats in this case, Liebermann's party, he can't form a coalition because the small party is the cannon maker, and if you don't have them, you just under sixty right? You need one majority in one hundred twenty transit hugest under sixty five seats, the make or break that, that's the difference between life is prime minister or prime minister, and therefore, I would predict at this initial stage. Again, we're early elections aren't mid September. But I would predict that a lot of people are going to take away a lesson from this experience. And if we want, right? We got a vote Likud if left. Got a vote blue and white and you're going to see those, those key parties actually grow, which, by the way, Ben, I think personally is in Israel's interest from the bigger party that there should be greater political stability in Israel right now. You kind of have a little instability, even with two great big parties in America. But there is something that we could potentially learn from that cats is editor in chief of the to the Jerusalem Post. Thanks for joining me show in shedding, some late on what is, of course, an incredibly chaotic and unprecedented situation in Israel. It's, it's always confusing, I think to folks within Israel's washes rarely politics and this time it's confusing even people at Israel's cycle. Thanks for stopping by. Thank you, Ben, okay? Well, just a second, I'm going to get to the Elizabeth hits Elizabeth. Warren is seeking to make a move in the way. She's making moves. She's got a plan for everything. The problem with people who make lots of plans that very often. The plans are not very good. Nobody seems to be asking, whether Elizabeth Warren plans or any good. We'll get to that in just one second, I heart disease Alzheimer's cancer, all terrible diseases. The play countless Americans today. Thankfully, America's doctors and researchers are working around the clock to find cures for all of them. But if government officials like secretary are have their way that could all change having the government mess with people's healthcare will say US medical innovation back decades. We've been countless Americans in bad shape while waiting for treatments that may never be discovered. We can't let that happen, please go to stop price controls dot com. Tell secretary to fix patients, not prices before chemists American suffer from medicine, shortages and face long. Endless wait times for treatment as many of, you know, my wife is a doctor what I want is more private industry involved in medicine, when I don't want more government involved in medicine thankfully, my friends over at freedomworks are fighting to stop secretary. As are out of control bureaucrats meddling with that healthcare allowing foreign governments to dictate. The prices have your medicine, we need medical innovations from eight here in the United States, and we need new medical innovation to continue to provide the drugs, that folks need if they're going to succeed, they're going to need our help. That's why I'm asking my audience right now. Go to stop price controls dot com. Tell secretary as artifice patients, not prices. This very, very instance that is stop price controls dot com. Go check them out right now. Okay. So Senator Elizabeth Warren was on the view today and there. She laid out some of her world-beating plant, she is gaining ground from Bernie Sanders, Alexandro causing Cortez, is widely expected to endorse Elizabeth Warren at this point, very close, and that will presumably drive, her to lead over Bernie Sanders at which point there's the possibility that Bernie Sanders collapses. Well, Bernie Sanders collapses, and Elizabeth Warren picks up all that support. You could see her jump to the mid twenties. And suddenly, she starts to look like more of a challenger to for example, Joe Biden right now that left wing is split between Sanders and Warren, and Kamala, Harris, and p Buddha judge and the rest of the. Party Warren seems to be getting all sorts of warm media coverage in recent weeks, as she becomes the woman with the plan and also she's just not crazy. Bernie, and also, she's a lady, and that means she's special Elizabeth Warren was on the view and there, she laid out some crazy plans apparently like Oprah Winfrey.

"Welcome back, America. It's Hugh Hewitt. Joining me from Israel, the deputy, prime minister of Israel member of the Knesset for a few weeks longer. Dr Michael Oren, formerly embassador to the United States. He did not run in the elections that were concluded two nights ago. But he joins us from Israel to explain them to us. Good morning. Dr Orrin what happened. Wow. Wow. That you've been facing indictment facing an opposition made a three former chief of staff. Facing or you? Call your fatigue. Tired now going into after four terms now the longest serving through history. Surpassing our founding fathers data than going Netanyahu wins term and wins. It. I love the quote attributed deal by the New York Times this morning. Let's be honest with ourselves. According to Dr Orrin our economy is foreign relations, never better and more secure got a guy politics for forty years. We know him the world knows him, even our enemies know him that's a very concise summary. Why do you want to fix something is broken, especially when you've got people who want to break it on your north on your southern border? Why do you want it? Choose over a man who has the forty years experience in government, an individual who is man, but has exactly zero experience in politics. Your experiences. Experience in finance economics. Who in the best of cases would have a learning curve, and this is a country which cannot afford anybody's learning crew not easily. No, Dr Michael Oren. The headline at the times of Israel is new right? That's a party in Israel demands. Recount after it falls just short of winning Knesset seats. And I did fall just short twelve hundred votes. You might have a Florida Bushby gore situation thirteen hundred eighty votes stops the new right from having four members of the Knesset zero. What is going to happen there? And do you think they'll get individually? The good news is we don't have any CHAD'S in this country. Voting is done in the primitive way, taking a slip a paper and putting an envelope. It turns out the age, you're hacking. That's good system to have. Yes. Challenge. It happen. Interesting about our politics. First of all this is a party, which which was headed by two very company. Compelling individuals. Your cat. Holly Bennett and doesn't make it and they ran on one hand destroy them off on the other hand, they rain in the supreme court, and the strange thing and Hebrew, Lou supreme court rhymes with us like you can make that up and they would take care of them both. And and they lost his lot about continuing respect for our supreme court. Well, that's interesting because you're supreme court does have a record of going far afield of what it's it's sort of an activist supreme court, Dr let me embarrass you a little bit. I tweeted out yesterday. I hope that the prime minister reaches out to you and send you to the UN to turtle bay. And if you don't wanna go to represent Israel in the United States 'cause you and Basseterre Dermer the two best at doing that you wanted to get out of politics for awhile. Did you feel left out on on Tuesday night? I mean, did you wish you considered in gone because you're old party kinda got beat up? I felt like I felt like the a just retired player. Watching his former team win the Super Bowl. That that is exactly you're coalition would have gotten bigger, even if your party got smaller. That's what I gather. You're saying. It's hard on that. You'll sit beat up on that field and sitting in the sand the popcorn hotdog good. Very good. But something about wants to be out in that field too. I'm happy for the people who won. And I, and I respect anybody who goes into election opposition, you know, coalition public service is about giving doesn't matter almost where you come from spectrum. Have you talked to the prime minister since then yet? I hope he's sleeping now. Well, that's true. But I hope you call them up and talk to them and say, I'm here. I'm ready to go to New York. Are you willing to come back to New York? I'm always went to serve my country capacity to pay. Few of them Super Bowl. But yeah. And the UN is is one of the major fronts in our in our political battle for legitimacy and against de-legitimize ation. And yes, of course, always willing to serve my ideas that if you have a gene Kirk Patrick eight Daniel Patrick Moynihan, a Nikki Haley or a Michael Oren making arguments on behalf of the United States Israel. They get picked up if they're made eloquently, they get ignored if they're not last question who's going to be your defense minister in this new government suspect at the end of the shuffling of the deck that the prime minister must oversee now. Well, interesting task of is really defense minister, potentially the graveyard or any politician because go to war against HAMAs get involved in any sort of a quagmire in Gaza, you lose. But if you don't go to war, and it was hit by rockets, and you lose still and yet in spite of the fact that it's the graveyard shift. Just of his really everybody wants it. They're about six or seven leading candidates, but there's a scuttle, but here that Netanyahu make just keep it himself. He was also the defense minister and church. Good could maintain reputation as Mr. security. Sort of a close grip on on the conduct of his really security, then we will watch that very closely.
