Victor Davis Hanson's Take on Glenn Youngkin's Upset Victory in Virginia
"Victor Davis Hansen senior fellow at the Hoover institution at Stanford University and author most recent so many things. Anything with his name on it, buy it, but the dying citizen out now follow him at vide Hansen. Professor Hansen, welcome to America first. Thank you for having me again, Seth. So much to discuss, personal news on your front with regards to a very storied conservative publication, but let's talk about the events in Virginia of the last few days. My take is the following. I would like you to be the sanity check for this. We have seen 9 out of ten of the analyses post the young con victory have been incredibly sophomoric, very, very simplistic, basically half of them have said, this is an indictment of Donald Trump because young and isn't Trump and the other half said this is a victory for Trump because he's just like Trump and critical race theory, et cetera, et cetera. I think the truth lies somewhere in between a very cautious candidate who didn't go full America first. However, embraced a culture war issue much like president Trump, which propelled him to the top of the ticket, who is to blame or who gets the credit for this massive upset victory professor. I think you have it right. I think he ran more successfully or at least as successfully in those red counties of Virginia than Trump did. So he was able to get the base. He was able to keep the base because Trump endorsed him and he didn't no issue did he disagree with the Trump magazine. He might have downplayed abortion in the particular suburbs. But he didn't, and he thanked Trump and that he won. He said that I appreciate that. But Trump made it easier for him because let's face it, this ostracism of Trump on social media, boomeranged against Silicon Valley. Because Trump found out that when he wasn't commenting on personalities every day, that in time people are remembering his record and not what he tweeted. And his tweets bothered some people. Some people they encouraged. But the point I'm making is people looked at Biden's disaster's first 9 and a half months and they've said this was all self created. The opposite of what Trump did. So Trump's stature has risen the more I don't know how to say it because it's a contradiction or paradox, the more remote. It's almost as a Trump is everywhere in the mind of the Democrats, but he's nowhere on social
Why Is the FDA Attacking a Safe, Effective Drug?
"Kudos to the wall street journal for publishing this piece. See who wrote it. Women see david henderson and charles. Hooper david henderson is with the hoover institution at stanford senior health economist with president reagan's council of economic advisers and hooper. Charles hooper is president of objective insights. A firm that consults with pharmaceutical clients. Why is the fda attacking a safe effective drug. The subheading ivermectin is a promising cova treatment and prophylaxis but the agency is denigrating. So while they're telling you well you know what the vaccine really doesn't protect you that much you need to wear a mask can't be around. People are infected. And you'll probably need a booster shot and we don't know how it will handle the variant. In the meantime. I've been taking ivermectin for over a year as exactly described as a prophylaxis. I've been around people with covert. I did know social distancing. No mask wearing within my own home. I didn't get a sniffle earlier this year. The agency that the fda put out a special warnings that you should not quote you should not use ivermectin to treat or prevent cova. Nineteen i charge. The fda with killing tens of thousands of americans would that statement plus shattering the economy because of took ivermectin so fewer so many fewer would be hospitalized.

New tensions emerge between Biden team and Trump administration
"Joe biden's incoming administration is taking shape. Former deputy secretary of state anthony blinken will be nominated for secretary of state x fed chair. Janet yellen is up to run treasury retired. General lloyd austin has been tapped to run the defense department. Some of these names have been more controversial than others. there've been some progressive objections to biden's likely pick a former iowa governor. Tom bill sack to reprise his role running. The agriculture department and a lot of republicans in the senate are cool to the choice of near attended a close hillary clinton confidante to run the office of management and budget. Some other choices like yellow. Have gotten pretty warm receptions across the political spectrum to talk about this administration that's what is likely to mean in terms of what a president joe biden might actually do. Let's bring in our left right and center panel on the right law. Chen is the david. Diane steffi fellow at the hoover institution and he's the director of domestic policy studies and lecturer in the public policy program at stanford lot. He has worked on several presidential campaigns for republicans including george w bush's reelection campaign marco. Rubio's two thousand sixteen run and he was the policy director for mitt romney in the two thousand twelve presidential campaign. Hello lonnie thanks for having me and on the left sabil. Rama joins us. Bill is president of demos a progressive organization that studies and advocates for voting rights economic and racial justice and equity sabil is also an associate professor at brooklyn law school. Bill so bill when you look at these names What does this tell you about. The sort of administration that joe biden is preparing to run. So i think the roster that's being built out is really interesting to me what it shows. Is there too big tensions that i think the new administration is trying to balance. A one is a balanced between old hands and some new faces and the other is a balanced between a pragmatic course and also progressive ones. So when you think about someone like janet yellen or cecilia rouse on the economic team These are folks who have deep experience in economic policy but also represent. I think a little bit more of a kind of a progressive wing of the larger policy debate. Not these are certainly not Bernie sanders elizabeth warren folks but they very much represent a part of the economic profession that is increasingly focused on issues of inequality Racial equity and issues of how we get around are sort of current problem of austerity politics. Lot he what do you make of this list of names. Well i think first of all there are a number of very highly qualified people on the list people who have great experience in government who i think even republicans who may have policy or ideological concerns would have to say are well qualified to play the roles. They've been a nominated by the president. Play and so. I think that that's a very hopeful. Sign on the other hand. You've got some real head. Scratchers here josh. There are people who the president is nominated for roles in various situations that i think people kinda wonder what was he. Thinking there Heavier sarah for example to be secretary of health and human services a man with no health policy no public health background who's really so claim to fame in healthcare is arguing to defend the affordable care act which by the way may have been enough for biden but it really seems to be one of those picks where he had put the sarah somewhere so he put him at. Hhs which under ordinary circumstances might be okay but in the middle of a pandemic hhs is going to play a critical role in disturbing the vaccine and hopefully overseeing and the the end of this covid nineteen pandemic here in the us. choice of. Sarah is puzzling one. The other one that i would point to which doesn't require senate confirmation and so Will be what it is. Is susan rice as director the domestic policy council which has traditionally been the policy making apparatus at the white house that coordinates the creation of domestic policy overseeing areas like education and health care immigration. Picking someone with with the deep foreign policy experience for that job seems to me to be a little bit odd. I think she was picked for that job. In part because it doesn't require senate confirmation and biden. His team knew there was no way republicans. Were going to confirm someone is controversial. Susan rice so for every sort of great. Pick for every janet. Yellen for every brian You know you have a few that sort of make you think. Gosh what is the biden team doing here. So it's a little bit of a mixed bag so far. Yeah bill when. I look at the list of names. I do sometimes see what he is describing their almost a sense that biden had list of people that he liked and wanted to give jobs to and a list of jobs he needed to fill and in some places. The matching of the to feels a little bit random. I'd also point to to marcia fudge who's an african american congresswoman from cleveland. She'd openly campaigned to be agriculture secretary. She's a senior member of the agriculture committee. There'd been a lot of progressive concerns about how the agriculture committee has dealt with black farmers and about beneficiaries of nutrition programs people primarily eat food rather than making it And biden has passed over. Her is expected to bill sack in that position and then fudge specifically said that she didn't want one of these traditionally black cabinet jobs like labor or housing and urban development. She's going to be put up to run housing and urban development. So some of these choices they do have that feeling to me of what we want this person job. Well here. this one's available. Let's give them out. One is that is that. Is that too harsh. Look looking at this selection process and saying that you know i. I do think there's a little bit of that. In terms of the example with congressman fudge gave. I think is a is a good one of your. She has deep expertise actually on areas connected to usda. I'm at the same time. I think she'll bring a novel. Interesting and important voice went on the issues of hud but there is a little bit of that. I think the thing i would offer is you know. There's so much going. On with this transition. Given the pandemic given the extraordinary delays that the trump administration put in place at one things that we're really looking at is what's what does that next layer down. Look like so when you think about the whole team Not just cabinet but cap a deputy secretaries and so on can does it look like a team that then has the balance of deep expertise and Mission alignment right at someone. Folks who are laser focused on the combined crises of of the economy and covid and climate and original justice moment. That's the next layer. That i would look at right. Are folks getting complimentary. Picks to offset some of where they might need additional insight or expertise
Russia is likely to launch the disinformation version of nukes
"You have heard. We learned this week that hackers have been spying on the us departments of state homeland security. Commerce treasury may be the nuclear security administration. Bad bad stuff. The intrusion began in the spring. And the hackers are thought to be working for the russian government and the ongoing news about this hack has me and others worried about all kinds of things from a physical attack on critical infrastructure to data manipulation to more election shenanigans. So i wondered. What should i be worried about. It's a topic for quality assurance where we take a second. Look at a big story in the news. Jackie schneider is a fellow at the hoover institution at stanford. The bad news is that the russians have a history of using this kind of information to try manipulate trust and so i think that's something that we should worry about especially as we. Are you know a little over a month out. From a big transition. Between the trump administration and the biden administration and that the russians will use information that they have achieved in these tax or even use the fear of the information that they've received in these hacks to create even more public distrust of that and transaction between the two administrations. So what might that look like this degradation of trust or even a campaign to further erode americans confidence and institutions. I think we're already starting to see it right. There is already starting to be linkages between and hack and the dominion electoral voting. And you're starting to see them then. Line these things up to show that there is some sort of discredit in the way the. Us conducted its election systems. Not there might be some sort of foreign influence inside them so we can imagine that we can also imagine it. Seems like this hack may have downloaded potentially sensitive or at least private emails between key government officials and we can imagine the russians have used this in the past to leak information to make government look bad to create distrust between different sectors of the government. I mean this could be particularly dangerous as we look at the transition in the department of defense. Because we've had a lot of problems with civilian military politicization reveal maybe private emails and that maybe represent a different kind of private feeling than what they're publicly saying you could create fractures that could continue to create distrust in the american public right. I mean so really. All of this is sort of a continuation of an ongoing effort. That was probably most prominent in two thousand sixteen right like take existing divisions amplify them create more and weaken the nation in the process. Yeah that's always been something that russia has fallen back on. They are conventionally much less capable than the united states economically much less capable. I'm even their nuclear inventories. Not as robust so the only thing they really have to influence against the united states is to try and seed chaos and so we can imagine them doing a whole lot more at that especially because they might be worried that a biden administration would have a much harder line against russia than they've seen out of the trump administration right so the idea being weakened that administration in every possible way before it even comes into office. Exactly i mean. I think we're going to see the cleavage. Is that have occurred in american society over the last four years. But really that we've seen solidify over this last year and during the pandemic we're going to see the russians playing on that even more and this information can be used in in really creative ways to try and exacerbate those cleavages
Coronavirus Means a Joe Biden Inauguration Could Look Very Different
"Bill Whalen. The Hoover Institution is the host of area 45 the podcast with his colleagues and also The Goodfellows his conversation with three of his colleagues, Mr Cochran, especially observing the economics of the present moment that is the need to get back to the economy at the same time, the need to deal with what appears to be a second wave. Of the virus. So we turned to Bill's most recent column at Forbes magazine entertaining how the presumptive president elect Mr Biden can approach his possibilities these next months. Bill Very good, even to the first suggestion is the most striking to me because it's doable. But at the same time why you want an untraditional indoor inaugural? What will that look like? And why does good evening to you? Good evening. John. Part of this is on being very cautious about the health of the president who's we know will turn 78 in a couple of weeks, and I don't think we would call unnecessarily hardly a robust I think he is sort of frail and fragile if you will, son. Just not sure that being out in the January cold of Washington for a long period of time is a good idea. John. There's the president here. It's usually with second term presidents their re inauguration strong when they take the oath of office inside the White House, sometimes too much from Laura Chemo. I just think that bike might want to consider not doing the pomp and ceremony, the West side of the Capitol for two reasons. One is health. A second one. John is it's called Coben. It's the pandemic. Um it's a very funny thing. If Donald Trump were being read, non dread indeed. Here, the worst spreader affect my God, You can't have 200,000 people on the ball. Think of all the Kobe You won't hear this about the Biden inaugural, but it's a reality putting 200,000 people together. I see a lot of the multi Mary masks. It's a health hazard. So by me, maybe in sending a very strong coded message could say that you know we're going to do things differently. I'll take the open. So the White House We won't have the big grand rally out on the mall that you have. We won't have a parade because times are talking instead of coming to Washington in celebrating and just spending money on your own good fortune to a day of service gives the money to charity and be an interesting way to set the tone person. In other words, no one will never see the light of the sun. But no, no, I I Kel, no ball dancing, right? No. No stepping out visiting all five. As I recall. I remember the Clinton inauguration of 1990 free where Mr Clinton visited all the simultaneous Suarez all over town. It would show up and my memory is that he played the saxophone. That might be wrong. I might have transposed the events. But in any event that is the ceremony to celebrate the new The new administration. And you're recommending that Mr Biden follow the recommendations of science right Bill. That's what a spreader event is and do none of that. And yet Here's the Here's the contradiction these last days in celebrating Mr Biden's victory. His supporters have done spreader events and I do not believe he's chastised him. No, he has the Jonah. That's gonna be the challenge for him in its first two months in office. We want to think that everything is the war is over. Because now as a vaccine that is has 90% effective, but no things go home. We're gonna have another wave of covert here throughout the winter. It's going to be difficult and from one way we know we can contain it released tryingto control a situation is to keep from having a spread offense and the inaugural The festivities. Things we just mentioned. Those are by definition spreader of

"Blomberg, author of False Alarm, president of the Copenhagen Consensus Center, visiting fellow from the Hoover Institution. I believe He was part of our first climate special that we did at CNN back when CNN actually would have opposing views on kind of it took everything in them. The letters do that special But I am somebody who I own property out west in the mountains. I believe in the environment. I love trees. I love animals. And I want to keep our our water and our air clean and pure. I don't know of anybody who doesn't care about that. I'm sure they exist. But I don't know anybody who doesn't care about that. The problem seems to be with taking the climate change attitude and then applying it into an emergency panic. Everybody's going to die quickly. And so we have to do this. Well, What should we do beyond Lemberg is joining us now. And how are you, sir? I'm good. How are you? I'm very good. So we wanted to. Ah, We wanted to talk to you about a couple of things. The alarm is, um, but first who? Who is this book targeted, too? I don't know. I talked to a lot of people and very many people really, really worried about global warming, and especially their kids, a word about global warming. You know, lots of kids are saying, Why should I study if there's no future for me because of the house, and that certainly is what we're being told A new survey showed that almost half of the entire global population now believes That global warming will lead to the extinction of the human and that is simply crazy. Global warming is a real problem is something we should fix. We need to get a sense of proportion. The U. N climate panel tells us that by the 2000 seventies, the impact of global warming will be equivalent to somewhere between their 20000.2 and 2% reduction in your average income. Remember by then you and I expect there will be 2.5 times, Richard. So instead of being 2.5 times, Richard will be likely lesson 2.5 times richer by 2007. That's a problem. That's not the end of the world. So this book is really to all the people go worried. And, of course, all the people they know we'll worried and telling you, it's a problem, not the end of the world. So you're kind of in the category of Michael Shellenberger that Except you're probably more in line with the I P. C. C. You take those reports as as gospel and say, Look, we're just going to accept this as fact. But then you look for the things that we we can do. That will actually make a difference. Would you put yourself kind of in Michael Shellenberger Sze kind of place. Oh, sure, sure. Andi, I think there's a lot of people in that camp. Because honestly, what That means is you take what the science is telling us. There is a problem. But then you also insist we need to look at the economics. Of climate change and actually take the best science there. And most people don't remember. I take my starting point in the guy who actually got the on ly Nobel Prize. In climate economics, William Nordhaus from Yale University. And, he says, as do almost everyone in climate economics, that there is a real problem with climate change, so probably in the order 3 to 4% GDP by the end of the century. That means if you can fix a substantial part for a low cost That's a good idea. But it's crazy to try to fix a 3 to 4% problem by encourage policies that will cost 15 to 30% of your GDP. And and that's what you're mean. You did an article in USA Today. Climate Change, Democratic alarmism leads to failing policies. Can you take us through that? Yeah. So look, the Democrats have a good intention there playing out Look, there's a real problem, but then they go on to say and much to Noah's. You should point it out. They believe that this is going to lead to the end of the world in 10 years. And that's just not the case. If it was the case, if this was neato hurtling towards Earth, the only thing you should be doing would be to worry about global warming. You just throw everything in the kitchen sink correct. Send up Bruce Willis and everybody else, you know, fix that. Medial. What reality is This is a minor problem. It's not a zero problem. It's a 3 to 4% problem over the next 80 years, and so the risk and what they're clearly suggesting is you know, we should have no new gasoline cars by 2035 fossil fuels in power sector in 2040 basically get the US to net Vera so emit no new You two in 2050 That is going to be phenomenally expensive. Remember, we only have one estimate that actually shows how costly that will be. So what's nations have promised on Ly one nation was brave enough to actually ask. So how much is that gonna cost? That was New Zealand. So no left wing New Zealand actually asked. How much is this going to cost them? Their preeminence estimate? Wass. This is going to cost us at least. 16% of our GDP more likely around 30% like that, for the U. S is equivalent to paying 5 to $10 trillion every year. Remember, that's more than what the entire national of the federal budget is. Right now. Every year. It's twice that a five trillion is Twice the revenues of the United States of America. So you tax it's twice the revenues just for that, and and remember it would not fixing a warning. It was slightly reduced the impact because most of the problems from global warming does not actually come from rich countries because we've already You sort of peaked and were increasingly going towards just producing services, which emits very little CIA, too. But most of the rest of the world so China, India, Africa, Latin America still want to get rich. They want to get to where we are today. And they will mostly be able to do that by using much more cheap, readily available energy and time telling them. I'm sorry. You can't do what we did Unbelievable. Right. You'll just have to stay poor. Yeah, it's it's it's absolutely irresponsible. But you're not talking about when you talk to global warming people, the zealots. You can't get them to talk about nuclear energy, the cleanest and the safest energy out there..

But I've been doing a little digging since then says there is a ludicrous level of hysteria. About school reopening. He's a former Stanford Medical Center neurology chief. Insisting anyone who prioritizes Children would open the schools. We course agree We're doing that. But It's interesting. That is interesting. All right. Back on.

I've been watching these so called protesters, Lieut burned down things. My friend needs a new car. Can I buy a skateboard? Go to a car Lot. Break the showroom window, where the skateboard go in and select a new car. It must be okay these days and legal if you're carrying a skateboard, because looting a bigger study seems to be happening every day and they're getting by with it. Asking for a friend. A valid question. So if you want more of that, on your TV screens just vote for Joe Biden because he can't even bring himself to denounce that 53 days worth of it. 53 days. Not sure I trust Doc Burger at this point, says The texture. Bergen government of by and for the statistics. You might not have meant that a compliment, but I think that the governor would take that as a compliment because he is One of the best individuals I've ever seen of taking things, not from an emotional standpoint from a statistic standpoint. One of the numbers. What is the data? That, having been said if he was here and asking for my advice, I would agree with you in this sense. We have a lot of work to do because of the damage inflicted on us by Cove it by China. Okay? And I want as much as the governor's. A CZ. Much of the governors.

And Sanford the whole Team the Legislature's funding this stuff. You know, this is the head of the agencies. All right. Managing a plan that they came up with the numbers show you they've done a good job. So rather than just look at the numbers. And decide how great they look every day or what?

We're going to Enderlin. And Aaron. What's online Hiring? Go ahead. Yeah, I was just thinking I'd like your opinion on this with all this mail and voting. That's probably gonna happen this year, and the election is probably gonna be closed. I can only a vision that can of worms that might be opened with the recount it probably worse than Bush Dorrit drag on for months after the election. Don't mail in vote. Well, you could recount mail in votes just like you do the other votes. But I wonder, you know, if your stories of people getting two ballots to hear stories of, you know, I mean look. Att, the California most recently had had a race. There's huge numbers. They're so he raised a good question, and I don't know the answer to it. I think rather than trying to trying to devise A male and ballot system that had some integrity to it gives us comfort. I'd rather we just vote the way we vote. If you have to go to the doctor now, do you go to the doctor? Yes, you go to the doctor. If you have to get groceries, you go get groceries. Yes, you good groceries. You have to buy a car. You go buy a car. You have to get to work. You get your car and you go. You go to work. Why can't we vote? Just the way we've always voted. Ask yourself that question. And the answer you're going to come up with is probably not going to be real comforting. Just saying Why couldn't Biden And the debate be done similar to zoom meetings. President Trump and biting would have to be in the same place, but it could still be televised nationwide. I suppose that you could have monitors on them, but I suppose you know your binds could have all kinds of notes and people, you know, sitting up a teleprompter for him. I don't know.

R. fifteen as an independent autonomous nation this is very strange sixty eight was more violent I I grant that but the authorities themselves were not acquiescing they were there there were incompetent to let it occur or they were in unable to use force to restore order at this time we had governors and mayors that are actively contextualizing Marie Mexicans in the violent how is it in California now week afterwards is there is there a reservation or at least as some kind of explanation from Sacramento from governor Newsom or from the mayors and SMSS con Los Angeles to see anything of that in the media Victor no I think the general it's more it's more of a sense about the Muslim communities I've been visiting knows that the lock down was was on dubious print pretenses this long has now been utterly repudiated by the hundreds of thousands that went out in the street and so people are saying to themselves are even out loudly if we couldn't open our barber shop to make a living or we couldn't open our floor shop or restaurant because we were going unchecked everybody with a lethal virus with hundreds of thousands of people were sprain and yelling and screaming and without malice and without a protective equipment and this was okay menu the state lost authority so what's happened Newsome is no longer in charge of any official policy everybody is out now and there is some social distancing but everybody's ignoring him because he lost all credibility without either enforcing his policies on the demonstrators or at least explaining why he could not whatever the reason those people have completely ignored it the lockdown policies as for the late the anger of rioting protests that's largely confined to the Los Angeles area because then we have a larger African American population but among the gentrified cities of the coast and the interpreters knowledge they're not large protest as they are in Detroit or Cleveland or Philadelphia Washington apples and speaking against the police is that a loud story in California because here in New York it makes no sense to speak against the NYPD I think it's I think we sure that look forty percent of the state or Hispanic and forty percent a Los angles you which police department or Mexican American or central American sh when I go to town and my committee at cellmark or personal I would say when I'm pulled over I have been for five times for either suspicion of speeding or tail light or something in every case the arrested actions arrested that the officers Mexican Americans and sold it for that community a minority community which is the largest minority in the state the police are all part of their community and so they're not going to go out and in fact if I should be so bold when I walk around my neighborhood I hear gun shots all night long and our dogs are not able to walk on our own property there so terrified and that's really a reflection of neighbors and farm houses there are many mostly exclusively excuse me Mexican American people who are shooting targets with revolvers or automatic weapons and they are determined to protect their communities should looting or violence get all the way out here it's very unlikely it would but it's quite amazing to hear I mean I feel like I'm in a guns all is quiet during the day and then about six o'clock people are shooting shooting shooting exclusively people target practicing to hone their skills of soap thanks has there been any we have less than a minute is there been any backing off of the policing in your area than the San Joaquin Valley not at all not at all if we haven't had any protest yeah small world communities there was one in Fresno but there was no public click on support for violence in the police handled pretty well they are very capable keeps our sheriff Margaret mims highly esteem of those people support please with the people I know in my community are or almost ninety percent Mexican American I would say the vast majority of them are opposed to the violent protest and are very bewildered by these very wealthy upper middle class and teach the kids who they feel have a pretty good shot America yep they're destroying the very system institutions that might allow other people to participate and so they they can't figure it out there so you know we never had those opportunities these kids have been made they're sort of spoiled kids that are destroying things that we would like to keep intact for our our opportunities thank you Davis Hanson.

"I'm John that Sir this is the John masters I welcome bill well enough the Hoover Institution hosts very forty five and his video cast with his colleagues as well the the Goodfellas however we turn now to the good fellas the campaign trail because the events this last week suggest we've been here before happily years nineteen sixty eight and the White House is suddenly open because Lyndon Johnson steps aside and permits a process that eventually will result in his vice president Hubert Humphrey but not without contraceptives August of nineteen sixty eight in the democratic convention in Chicago all that year and the previous years there had been an extreme tragedy and disorder in major cities leading to the expectation that Lyndon Johnson was driven from office bill a very good evening to you the ninety six election with the background of a turmoil in the cities the Vietnam wars civil rights and then the the assassination of Martin Luther king in April of sixty eight leads to an easy comparison today and yet in your forms column you do not follow that path instead you talk about the president's lock or lack of it house bill good evening to you gravy drugs what started me on this was I thought about writing about nineteen sixty eight because I've kind of had my fill of nineteen sixty eight stories we're pretending because number one of the civil unrest and that's certainly Nixon famously running of the law and order candidate trump not too long ago declared himself the law and order candidate so hot nice discovered much to my horror that I'd written a column like this in twenty sixteen John holds about the same time asking if the comparisons were popular were were appropriate and if so it's not about the current environment which were in and I did not find it beating sector allowed a couple regards first obviously the lack of a third party candidate George Wallace being a big disruptor that lecture Johnny one five states completely screwed up the map in the south for Democrats but secondly John that Donald Trump is not really Richard Nixon's campaign but he is the man you mentioned in the intro Linda Johnson he is in the White House is looking out the window at the White House a protest he's seeing his approval rating the road as to Johnson and he is in a word beleaguered right now and if when Johnson wrote in nineteen sixty eight we don't know how would have turned out but you see trump in nineteen sixty eight basing a lot of challenges and now a very troubling company H. troubled part John because he just seems to be for the first time in his presidency unlucky corona virus struck if the economy which was his bread and butter for reelection this horrible act occurred in Minnesota which started the nation on this discussion about race across the president have to be empathetic than is absolutely the worst thing for Donald Trump to try to restart it and crap at the end of the day so it does ask the question of after three and a half really kinda long years of trump in which he had good fortune is he now is young no not that strict the president famously said in the twenty sixteen campaign that his supporters would forgive him almost anything I believe he used the metaphor of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody that sort of thing however yes supporters still exist and they surprised everybody by winning Pennsylvania Michigan and Wisconsin in the last election you will recall in those last hours before the vote the president went on a campaign of rallies across those very states because he had a narrow path to victory and he followed it will we see the same thing despite the virus bell yes I think but he's going to hit the trail very soon and he has to John for a couple reasons one is he has to rally that base you have to get back in touch with the blue collar white voters those are three key states Wisconsin Michigan and Pennsylvania but also John I think you have to get on the trail because that for Donald Trump is really the plight of oxygen he feeds off the energy of those rallies he enjoys the performance art events he joins the connectivity and being in those large spaces and reaching that many people the same time and I don't know if that's a coincidence as to why he is currently in the problem he is because he has been confined he has done a couple of events that he went to Arizona for example to a campaign event so yes you can see him on the trail and I think you're gonna see him on the trail piercing in the last two to two months or so this campaign is everyday challenging to avoid if you want to keep up with them saying I'm gonna go and do a couple of events that you Mr Biden your few years older than me see if you can keep up study part of the president's lock his his opponent as I understand the polls right now with what is it twenty twenty one weeks ago the polls indicate that people are eager to vote against the president but not eager or a particularly concerned about voting for Joe Biden Joe Biden remains and his Delaware home in the basement when we see him very carefully campaigning by teleprompter and tell a tale of vision you know transferring his thoughts over the video however it is does that answer for the next twenty weeks is that a way to respond to trump's excited almost carnival like momentum you can make the argument John that if it's working for you why change it about these polls I look at the average of the polls John's not specific goals because there are shocked polls in both directions real clear politics average of this moment John has a three point race nationally but we know from twenty sixteen it's not national local but if you look at about six or seven states that the scientists respond has about a four point eight as good as it should be at a commanding lead by your body good position rather be formed for down but here's the question once you get back to a little more of a societal norm I don't see how Joe Biden can stay in the basement Delaware he's going to have to go out on the trail he's going to have to be in front of crowds super complicated thing provide because he has to show that he is a vigorous candidate but at the same time he does not want to put himself in a position to commit errors and if you talk to Democrats I have democratic friends whom I talked to and thirdly John this is what keeps coming up it's our one concern about all right is he really does he really have his fastball he's still sharp as he once was so if you're his campaign you want to limit his interaction so I think what you might see is a lot of campaign events trump the very limited speaking on the part of the candidate and boy you want to talk about social justice and forget about being six feet apart I think they're going to do the best to keep the media about six miles apart the candidate I've watched Joe Biden's presentation of the crime bill in the nineties I'm not speaking to the statements that he made that are all very unacceptable today and probably worth the time I wasn't paying attention what I've been struck by bill is that it doesn't look to be the same human being Joe Biden was certainly even but he was certainly a vigorous and he spoke very well expending as he made his presentation he had lots of brownish hair and.
"I will relate that interesting story. The president of Kazakhstan actually visited a company called hike. Vision is another one that provides surveillance technology visit their office in China and he saw how with one. Click on a person's face. You could get that person's school history work history financial situation. Wow and wait for it. How did this person spend his or her leisure time? So where did this person go to have fun? Did you go to the movies? Did you stop by the bank to go to the post office where you hang out with friends? Did you participate in a protest and his reaction after seeing all of this was we need this technology. That's not where I thought the story was going. This is probably not the first time you're hearing about China's surveillance technology and that's because it gets a lot of coverage it's like a Black Mirror episode. It gives us visions of a dystopia in future but this technology and the eagerness of some countries to begin implementing. It is only a small part of a much bigger story about China through its belt and road initiative China's in the process of building and funding infrastructure projects across the globe and loaning vast sums of money in the developing world. Some observers argued that as it does this. China is also exporting its authoritarian model of government and eroding democratic norms. That many of us take for granted others say that China is simply taking business opportunities where it sees them and providing countries with an alternative to a global order that has gone unchallenged for decades. The debate comes down to one question. How will we choose to view China as they pour money into hospitals ports and roads around the World I'm Gabrielle? Sierra and this is why it matters today is China exporting authoritarianism. I think the most important thing to understand about China's foreign policy over the past ten years or so is that it really has been transformed. This is Elizabeth Economy. She's a senior fellow and director for Asia. Studies here at the council. She's also a distinguished visiting fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution beginning in about two thousand and eight with global financial crisis China's hosting the Olympics. These are really moments that defined in the minds of many Chinese leaders that China was rising. Chinese have many goals for these Olympics. One of them was to announce to the world. The China is back after two hundred years. China's economy has grown faster than that of any other major country. The Asian giant has now grown into one of the most important export markets for manufacturers from all over. The world is a period of historic change in China. There haven't been many periods in history as fascinating as this so there was a real sense within China for the first time that they had always expected that at some point China was going to surpass the United States but maybe that time was coming sooner than they anticipated. But what really has changed the game on the ground has been Xi Jinping everything for Xi Jinping is under the mantra of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation and it is a call for reclaiming a much greater degree of centrality for China on the global stage. Xi Jinping became China's president in two thousand thirteen some observers have called him the most powerful Chinese leader since Mao Zedong. Look I think there are any number of objectives and we can find them all and Xi Jinping's writings and speeches but fundamentally what I think. Xi Jinping attempting to do is simply to make the world safer authoritarianism. Teaching is a dictator but dictators. Still have to answer to domestic constituents. This is Jessica. Chance Weiss associate professor of government at Cornell and a leading expert on Chinese politics. She has a different take on China's expansion. One that sees it as being less offensive and more defensive. China's concerned about a whole lot of different risks. Some of them domestic others ones. That emanate from abroad sparks. That might start the prairie fire and bring down the Chinese government and might take units overriding purpose is to continue to make the world safe for the Chinese Communist Party to strive at home. So this is a world that safe for autocracy to coexist alongside democracy in the international space. So it's not been as ideological I think and it's foreign policy is some admitted. It out to be so. China is trying to find a way to sort of fit in with a world. That might not be comfortable with its model of government tried to make space for its form of government to be regarded as one that can continue to exist that is legitimate than democracy isn't the only form of government so to speak and so this has made it easier for other authoritarian states to survive

"At Stanford university's Hoover Institution he has been on TV radio many interviews written many pieces in the media said there should be no more fear and panic anymore about this virus we know who the virus impacts we know who to protect and it's the same people we should have known from day one older people with chronic underlying diseases and when we left off in the conversation doctor at least you were talking about how there's people making decisions to really have no idea what they're doing from a medical standpoint and some of the smart people are are engaged in a lot of sloppy thinking can you expand on all I mean I'll give an example people are looking at the totality rates and just making a broad statement that the the danger in the finality rate is for everyone but when you look at the data he is supposed to read actually the paper not just the abstract with the introduction of the paper and when you look down into the data of those very scientific of those very people who sells you see that the risk of fatality for instance for people under sixty is less than or equal to seasonal flu the risk is high for people over eighty you know so when you average things out I mean it did make a general statement but that sort of irrelevant when we know that we know there's a specific population of people to protect you don't assume the risk of the same for everybody else you don't confine everyone else indoors in there and walked on society and not protect the only people who are likely going to die which is the nursing home people similarly there's zero reason if you look at the papers to keep schools closed literally zero scientific evidence for that your little scientific evidence to require math in school U. zero scientific evidence to require inter enough spacing in between children in schools and now we're gonna faces zero scientific evidence to keep school summer programs quote because children are not at risk there is no risk for children they're very likely not even a a big time transmitter the disease but that's not important what we do it's not as important as knowing we need to protect we need to have their elderly parents teachers who are high risk yeah be very careful when you close the schools down in fact if you had that logic that they're proposing you must shock all schools from November through March because so many people die from the flu fifty thousand Americans die from the flu even with the vaccine even with anti viral drugs it's the same high risk people by the way but in addition children still in a lot six hundred children a year die in the US from seasonal flu thank you much it does logic why aren't we locking down total society and completely closing schools from November to March every year so you were things if you're in charge of things here in LA county in LA would you say tomorrow but I go back to what you're doing but social distancing mass would even want that out there okay well you know there there's two parts of public policy and this one is to do what scientifically sound there first and foremost number one the second part is you might have to do things to reduce people's fear because in Switzerland for instance they opened up the restaurant and nobody came because everyone's afraid and so I mean the reality is that we've created a bigger problem by the policy and by the irrational implementation of policy with no common sense so yes there are reasons why certain people should wear Matchroom concert scientific reasons that you could suggest them if you're in a position where you think you're going to have someone cough in your face then you might need you need a mask if you have the owner you should self contained stop I usually for two weeks and while a mask when people walk into your room they are not allowed to say do you need a map to be outside there's zero evidence for that that's completely irrational to say you should be in your home so to go to the beach or where I see people in Palo alto driving their cars alone wearing a mask I see people in Palo alto running on a track wearing a mask no I'm not making fun of them because they're very afraid I I totally empathize with that but there is zero one object or scientific basis to do that I mean some of the stuff we are really seeing the complete absence of common sense hello public leaders here why aren't more public medical professionals especially the ones who were advising the governor the mayor the county supervisors why aren't they saying what you're saying you're all looking at the same data you know I don't know it's hard to get that somebody's thought thought that especially when it's completely illogical but I I would say that there's a lot of fear people in positions of authority have responsibility and they're human beings and are hungry again I empathize with their fear they're afraid they don't have a real sophisticated understanding of that and I could tell you this if there are a lot of people that I get email I get over a hundred emails every morning and then during the day hundreds from all over the world including the back medical scientists in academia Alex in computer science lab or while Ming support for what I'm saying in another part of it is they're afraid to speak out on their own there's this tremendous sort of backlash you know you walk into a store you don't have a mask on everyone is shrieking at you and there's a lot of sort of oppression really frankly in a broad sense of of what's happening here when you're speaking against the conventional wisdom which I know I am but I'm not running for office I don't really care what anybody thinks of me I'm speaking the truth that has nothing to do with politics with

In Unprecedented Times, Governors Have Unprecedented Power
"Now let's move on to the power governors in the states have explained their responsibilities during a public health crisis so we're gonna do this what is your view of the constitution of the limited document the tenth amendment to the constitution stresses that they're in the powers not delegated to the federal government to research this thanks so I understand our constitutional law we understand that the states have what's called quote unquote the police power and it's not the power just to have a police force that power to regulate everything within the borders of the state all people and conduct except when it's taken away specifically given to the federal government so that's why it the governors of the states who are exercising that power under their own constitutions or because the state legislatures given that power they're the ones who decide whether businesses can stay open out whether we're allowed to travel outdoors what can be bought and sold because the states have the general reservoir power over everything within their territory finally local governments mayors county commissions do they have any unique powers or they beholden to what state government decides on last a governor specifically gives them the leeway to make their own decisions like an acting curfews or ordering residents to wear face masks in public question and that's really up to each state so some something could give if they wanted to their cities and counties that power that's the case in California for example but again that's just they launched a constitution each they could be different I'm joined by former Deputy Assistant Attorney General and visiting fellow at the Hoover Institution John you let's talk about re opening the economy and your piece explaining how the president can't force states to do it explain who as what authority there it's interesting so based on the police power states hi I have the primary thirty over in the opening closing of businesses for example restaurant in your hometown A. L. a public health standards that's under state law that under the police power the greatest use of the state police power in the system record is one where is their power to protect the public health and safety of the residents of that state hi imposing these lockdown orders that's all under state law now the federal government has a lot of tools at its disposal to try to get the economy reopened and going again what they're saying you can't do is actually reverse those lockdowns so the federal government can boost spending ranking give out more checks to more people her unemployment benefits it can actually directly assessed since it can reopen travel can encourage people to travel want to control whether businesses and establishments the open or not whether people go outside or not thanks still to this day in

"Hoover Institution at Stanford is a conservative think tank he is V. expert on the Peloponnesian wars he is V. expert on ancient Greek history and philosophy he can't even tell you who the Greek version of Bill Clinton was a man by the name of Alcibiades same kind of guy farmers today are some of the most you know what they have to know GPS they have to understand global positioning satellites they have to understand how to use computers they have to be internet savvy they have to use cyber tools hourly to plant to irrigate to harvest you just can't summon to grow some corn in the backyard you can't you know I love rice some reports some rice in my but you you know how water intensive rice is well most people don't and if he is it's a hit or miss proposition every year I don't care whether we're talking about corporately owned agriculture or family farms it's hit or miss M. Bloomberg doesn't even realize stop and think of it this way two percent of the people in this country now produce what ninety eight percent years that sounds pretty special to me two percent of the population produced ninety eight percent of the vote how does that happen if it's so easy to do why didn't everybody doing it why isn't half the country in agriculture feeding the rest of the country and profiting from this to the heavens from wonder why what is it that makes Bloomberg think putting something on the ground is always going to grow there is going to grow and produce profitable food I happen to know Victor Davis Hanson he has spent his entire life on a farm while commuting to academia he has found he lives in both worlds he lives in the world of academe with supreme intellect easily distant telogen said what have you and he has told me that farmers in his experience are more inventive they are more Cammy they have far more challenges to deal with it every day then simply thinking about what you think about a specific issue they have to be expert in markets they have to be as informed as possible on the weather on pests labour these are things that the elites never deal with they never have to come in contact with the closest they get to it is when it arrives on their dinner plate and yet here's Bloomberg putting them all down like this it's classic literally clears debris in Detroit Deborah glad you waited welcome to the EIB network hello thank you very much long time listener here in the Detroit area we are bombarded with Bloomberg commercial showing him and most wonderful work he's done with Obama he's coming across like he's being you know that Obama is totally backing him for all of the years that he's done things with him and I'm getting sick and tired of it and I'm getting sick and tired of friends who are liberals saying oh he's backed by Obama and I say no he's not well no Obama has backed anybody but don't let that frighten you Obama ends up backing people lose all I know mom endorsed Hillary big time what happened or I know but they want you know Bloomberg wants to give the impression that he have the Obama endorsement well that he told Michigan yeah well that South Carolina is the next step here then and that that's that's gonna be running it what what what are you for your time the ads is that the frequency you just can't get away from it all yeah you know wake up in morning to watch the the news he's there you know I'm retired watch the news in the afternoon he there are at night if I happen to watch a program that's not on Netflix he's there it's like twenty four seven well you know the theory is that money is what wins in politics and so an age old phrase that was begun by a California a little girl named Jesse Unruh mother's money is the mother's milk of politics people believe it and that's why they think it's the answer to everything and it's a lot of political consultants really thank whoever has the most money is guaranteed to win because I got the most ads to run negative ads on opponents negative ads work and and so that's it's just it's become almost all conventional wisdom and yet we've not had somebody like Bloomberg spend this kind of money this far out and it is an interesting laboratory type experiment because if he is irritating people I don't think you're alone being irritated by these ads yeah and it's frustrating because the riding Obama's coattails so you keep that look I have a keen ear when I talk to people I hear what they say and no matter my attempts to steer your call into various directions I do it on purpose you keep doubling back to what really irritates you by this is that this guy's trying to tie himself to Obama so you really don't like Obama right no I don't and you are afraid of Obama you're afraid Obama's got some mystical powers in the next election no matter right of him just disappointed in friend who thinks he's so mad the call and if if Obama thing what is the magic I mean that that was a column in the Los Angeles Times Barack the magic I quoted that they they they think I wrote it by the way but I welcome to you for twenty five years al Sharpton that's one of my favorite all time parodies that we've done on this show I've been around for twenty five years by the people I work with listen to you rast because your a ditto head yeah let's see you've hung in there you hung in there and you probably dish it right back I your idea but sometimes it gets a little frustrating that's why I keep telling people can I guess when I get frustrating and door anybody I guess there's an OB I'll bet you it's frustrating because the things they say you know they've never listened you don't they don't even know what they're talking about that's what frustrates you are you a person from a family member from Boston that came for thanksgiving two years ago I mentioned your cold clear implant because a member of the family was having surgery and we're going to lose their hearing and I was saying nothing political but it changed your life because you got to continue to do what you love and later in the evening a member of the family said who lives in Boston you know what we people in Boston say about people that listen to rush and I said no tell me then they didn't finish their sentence hello it wasn't political it was this is something that changed her life because this is your livelihood and that's a good thing well that's not working or Democrat or any limits are they were praying that I would stay deaf they were praying it would be the end of the E. I.

"Hoover Institution at Stanford is a conservative think tank he is the expert I'm the Peloponnesian wars he is V. expert on ancient Greek history and philosophy he can't even tell you who the Greek version of Bill Clinton was a man by the name of Alcibiades same kind of gun farmers today are some of the most you know what they have to know GPS they have to understand global positioning satellites they have to understand how to use computers they have to be internet savvy they have to use cyber tools hourly to plant you're engaged to harvest you just can't summon to grow some corn in the backyard you can't you know I love rice some reports some rice in my but you you know how water intensive rice is well most people don't and if he is it's a hit or miss proposition every year I don't care whatever talking about corporately owned agriculture or family farms it's hit or miss M. Bloomberg doesn't even realize stop and think of it this way two percent of the people in this country now produce what ninety eight percent years that sounds pretty special to me two percent of the population produced ninety eight percent of the food how does that happen if it's so easy to do why didn't everybody doing it why isn't half the country in agriculture feeding the rest of the country and profiting to this to the heavens from wonder why what is it that makes Bloomberg think putting something on the ground is always going to grow there is going to grow and produce profitable food I happen to know Victor Davis Hanson he has spent his entire life on a farm while commuting to academia he has found he lives in both worlds he lives in the world of academe with supreme intellect easily this didn't telogen said what have you and he has told me that farmers in his experience are more inventive they are more Cammy they have far more challenges to deal with it every day then simply thinking about what you think about a specific issue they have to be expert in markets they have to be as informed as possible on the weather on pests labour these are things that the elites never deal with but never have to come in contact with the closest they get to it is when it arrives on their dinner plate and yet here's Bloomberg putting them all down like this it's classic literally clears debris in Detroit Deborah glad you waited welcome to the EIB network hello thank you very much long time listener here in the Detroit area we are bombarded with Bloomberg commercials showing him and most wonderful work he's done with Obama he's coming across like he's being you know that Obama is totally backing him for all of the years that he's dancing with him and I'm getting sick and tired of it and I'm getting sick and tired of friends who are liberals saying oh he's backed by Obama and I say no he's not well no Obama hasn't backed anybody but don't let that frighten you Obama ends up backing people lose all I know mom endorsed Hillary big time what happened over I know what they want you know remembered wants to give the impression that he has the Obama endorsement well that he pulled Michigan yeah well that South Carolina is the next step here then and that that's that's we ought to be running it what what what are you for your time the ads is that the frequency you just can't get away from our yeah you know wake up in morning to watch the the news he's there you know I'm retired watch the news in the afternoon he there are at night if I happen to watch a program that's not on Netflix he's there it's like twenty four seven well you know the theory is that money is what wins in politics it's an age old phrase that was begun by a California politico named Jesse Unruh mother's money is the mother's milk of politics people believe it and that's why they think it's the answer to everything and it's a lot of political consultants really think whoever has the most money is guaranteed to win because I got the most ads to run negative ads on opponents negative ads work and and so that's it's just it's become almost all conventional wisdom and yet we've not had somebody like Bloomberg spend this kind of money this far out and it is an interesting laboratory type experiment because if he is irritating people I don't think you're alone being irritated by these ads yeah and it's frustrating because he riding Obama's coattails so you keep that look I have a keen ear when I talk to people I hear what they say and no matter my attempts to steer your call into various directions I do it on purpose you keep doubling back to what really irritates you by this is that this guy's trying to tie himself to Obama so you really don't like Obama right no I don't and you are afraid of Obama you're afraid Obama's got some mystical powers in the next election no matter right of him just disappointed in friend who thinks he's so mad the call and if if Obama thing what is the magic I mean that that was a column in the Los Angeles Times Barack the magic I quoted the P. they they think I wrote it by the way but I welcome to you for twenty five years al Sharpton who wrote your that's one of my favorite all time parodies that we've done on this show I've been around for twenty five years by the people I work with listen to your rast because your a ditto head yeah let's see you've hung in there you hung in there and you probably dish it right back I your idea but sometimes it gets a little frustrating that's why I keep telling people can I guess what I guess straining your anybody I guess there's an OB I'll bet you it's frustrating because the things they say you know they've never listened you don't they don't even know what they're talking about that's what frustrates you the person from a family member from Boston that came for thanksgiving two years ago I mentioned your cold clear implant because a member of the family was having surgery and we're going to lose a fair hearing and I with saying nothing political that it changed your life because you've got to continue to do what you love and later in the evening a member of the family said who lives in Boston you know what we people in Boston say about people that listen to rush and I said no tell me and they didn't finish their sentence hello it wasn't political it was this is something that changed her life because this is your livelihood and that's a good thing well that's not working or Democrat or any limits that they were praying that I would stay death they were praying it would be the end of the E. I. B. network that's just what they are anyway don't worry about these ads these ads are probably affecting a lot of people the way they are affecting you understand Bloomberg has to do this because he doesn't have a delegate yeah he hasn't entered this to here is he even going to debate these people have they built the box for him to stand on the debate these are questions to which we don't yet have any answers.

the economy I guess we have to save America from that somebody who can help explain what is the logic of the political elites today is perhaps one of the greatest writers we have today a classicist in his own right senior fellow at the Hoover Institution you've seen him almost every night on television he is professor Victor Davis Hanson professor welcome to America first thank you grab the bastion I'm you've written a piece of the fabulous website American greatness called top get trump forever having read it it raised in me a very simple question I see the president's defense team doing sterling work this week we have fabulous America's scholars such as Alan Dershowitz we have former especial councils like Kenneth Starr who have given very solid lectures lectures I would've enjoyed in graduate school very professorial very fact based the history of impeachment and I thought to myself why is there anything that the president's defense team could say that would change the minds of those who wish to remove the duty elected president from the White House are only for the fact that there's four five senators are there is maybe thirty or forty house members who are you know they have been aware of political reality and are in need of states are congressional district don't wanna can put a cold from the congressional district I put my fault publican lost in a Democrat one Republican is one name is way ahead poll hello I I think that's the only thing it's not about actual crimes it's for a variety of one complex reasoning across town wait until November because I take very agreed upon probably blooms Alexian inn for about eight years of the progressive project pretty much junk for generations and they're just not just one tap on powerful so we go to all these **** drummer do not moment calls twenty nine month Michael Kohn Michael I'm not a tax returns impeachment you were just never yonder worn out because the outlook the alternative Sebastian I guess it's

you go do whatever we want the United and they will come and get you look knowledge just giving a call out the kitchen sink speeches always been practical moves on on and I'll talk to quit cold cold creams and broadly our public schools the abuse of power right in Congress but that didn't go anywhere and then made a really crowd because your mistake and betting everything on Adam shell because the more you hear in the less you like it he appeared on the number you can't tell the truth and he's been caught so many cons non and I don't think they want I really don't think they want because I think they want to end on Friday and then say it's really a good we did get a chance to call witnesses but the downside I don't think Adam Schiff wants to go up there on the old and then have the whistle blower band on all give Mary versions of how this functionality because are not compatible with talking to press a Victor Davis Hanson of the Hoover Institution all for all of of the case for trump you need to read this book you you built your career as a historian historian of military history of of of the ancient civilizations of of the Greeks this is the bedrock of western civilization then let me ask you a very simple question that is my concern there is this theory of of social contract that there there are written and unwritten ways of doing business and and and western civilization is built upon them if one of the two parties in the system not a fringe party not the Libertarian Party not not Ross Perot but one of the two party says that we will impeach the president because we count we in the at the ballot box isn't that the shredding of the social contract or even the original call product on which the Republic was founded what what does this do on the long term for the United States professor Hanson well I think if you read our federal sixty five and sixty circle how we can serve them and other essays at the time about impeachment I thought it would be very where very hard to do that's one name that tune because you have to have it how old six separate crafter and they didn't think it looks to be the opposite they didn't envision that some of the opposition party trickle of the house would be a European Parliament terrible but not that's what it's become and there's a lot of Republicans we believe the appropriate approach doesn't want the Democrats so I imagine that the next time we have a democratic president and there are any legal gonna consider doing that because it's now going to be the most off the laundry vintage one as we know it doesn't exist anymore it's been transmog apart in the dictionary yeah but hi this is the way it is and remember we have no special counsel report no bipartisan support you have no public support need this approach currently W. peaks of the nineteenth century of course come president and will premiere Alexian it was just awesome we have in the basement we are not in the house Judiciary buttonholes intelligence committee to selectively things by Alan ship so we just it's just patently dishonest asymmetrical one and I think they're gonna pay a price for me home is on his way to a seventy nineteen seventy two or nineteen eighty four reelection well that's exactly the mangled that's exactly the next question I wanted to see professor if if nothing else exogenous happens if there's no massive external crisis if the economy state keeps going the way it's going and the president is reelected in two hundred and seventy seven days what do you expect the effect to be the knock on effect on these people will will live suddenly be Damascene moment where they say okay we got it wrong way sorry the media the left and will behave ourselves could it get worse and and really how could it get worse well here is the story we just have to ask what did they do after seventy two when they got the winner should not my government a surgeon on both the Compaq we never we haven't won since JFK and us you have a democratic guy with a southern accent DJ can you call the right and unions kind of a central St eighty four the left four my gosh school's out and they did it again with the caucus and then they they didn't do it again I got a guy with a southern accent so I think they'll be a lot of people who say the A.

"Guidance at the Hoover Institution this week casting from Stanford University so on Friday I was reading about this I wrote about a town hall as well there was a piece in The Washington Post about the Democrats in their strategy on impeachment and one of the things that pelo C. had decided based on polling internal democratic polling was the Democrats had to shift from quid pro quo to bribery by this is one of their findings that in these important swing areas quid pro quo wasn't resonating with people so they had to maybe pick something simpler for people to understand and so they landed on bribery and the point that I made was like okay if you're serious about this and it's really not about politics right she's is not about politics it is about the constitution and our Republic okay if that's fine if that's true if you actually believe that then you are changing the accusation based on your internal political polling sorry it just doesn't seem serious it seems calculated it seems cynical and along those same lines I don't think that it holds a whole lot of water but don't take my word for it Jonathan Turley is a law professor at George Washington he's also a CBS news contributor he was talking about their shift the Democrats trying to move from quid pro quo to something sexier and and more easy to understand bribery how does that legal case look professor cut thirty three there's no merging narrative coming on the Republican side but there's a question whether there has to be ultimately if the good if the Democrats do not establish a narrative of impeachment what they're doing a great job at is establishing really troubling conduct by the president by his personal lawyer but none of that will matter unless they can bridge that narrative to an impeachable act and that's where we're seeing the shift towards bribery IBM is they had a it is a very sketchy basis I I have to tell you I do not believe they made out a case for bribery either under the modern definition or what how the framers understood so no matter how you cut it he says the modern definition bribery or how the framers understood bribery the Democrats have an established that John Radcliffe is a Republican of Texas he's on the intelligence committee he also really focused in on that this morning right he he used his five minutes to go after this notion of bribery which is the new standard that the Democrats are using quid pro quo as well that's a little a little Latin phrase do people really understand it let's pick something that everyone understands it legal okay so fine you're gonna name a crime which is bribery explain that and prove how this is bribery and they just they haven't done it and Turley's out there saying they haven't done it he's a left leaning guy who's been the admittedly suspicious of the entire Russia hysteria and also this impeachment process but he kind of tells it like it is he's like alright you want to go to bribery let's establish that let's see the evidence and it just it's not there right now the fact that they made that pivot on their own polling as The Washington Post exposed and reported I think to me that's also telling it reminds a lot of people this is about politics and messaging and maybe the messaging shift like they member they all abandoned collusion collusion doesn't matter anymore has to be.

"In the Hoover Institution he writes a defining ideas is looking at the causes the explanation rationalization for the appearance of an and the US economy why does this matter because when the political election season because the Democratic Party knows that history suggests it is very difficult to defeat an incumbent president with a strong economy however with the weak economy there are plenty of instances when a one term president has been disarmament so therefore the economy's strength is vital to both parties president trump because without a recession he looks to be an easy relaxed are the candidates for the Democrats because with the recession they look to be triumphant Richard is entertaining the possibilities of what is causing the apparent slowdown in the US economy not recession apparent slowdown we do not have evidence of a recession the hiring continues strong the consumer continues to spend money and the gasoline prices are like built in tax cuts so America's enjoying right now shopping sprees by Richard the third possibility that is entertained by professor of by president trump and we've talked about it is a trade war but inside that are some terms that need definition what is economic nationalism something that trump's campaign talk much of in twenty sixteen. economic nationalism is the sort of notion that you want. and strongly positive balance of trade agreements the balance of payments agreements with everybody else so you would like to have a system in which you're going to engage in exports and not engage in imports you're going to engage in activities which allow your workers to keep jobs that Michael otherwise to foreign countries and the theory is that if you're doing the exports and you're keeping the jobs of the economy itself will start to grow stronger it is one of the great fallacies in one of the great mistakes of all time to think that this kind of analysis could work and the tragedy about from the Z. as two people around him then the ball rolling Wilbur Ross who actually think that some version of this mercantilist policies are going to be sensible so let's figure out what is wrong with this well the first thing there's always going to be a kind of an aggregate loss if you can get up to a particular kind of good for two dollars from a foreign company of course you four dollars from a domestic company and you say the other affected the mystic purchase what happens is your goods and services and I'm going to be more cost this means to the extent that you're having domestic sales people going to have to shell out more for less and it means that when you try to sell your goods in the foreign markets they high price is going to make potential bias doctor shot away from and what time never seems to understand than the economic Max was always seem to overlook is that in order for you to make your exports would you have to do is to have a sensible set of inputs for vital commodity now in some cases they could be substitution so you may not get it from China you may get it from somewhere else but in other cases it turns out that the substitution the very very costly to start having a to do without these things and that itself turns out to be a mistake so the first point about this is quite simply is no evidence whatsoever if you try and adopt inefficient practices at home are you going to be able to somehow or other recoup the losses that are on the line the second problem that you always have this turnabout is fair play you start to play the game out. like nationalism day with everybody else on the plate economic nationalism game and you see the come to an impossibility so in American positions we have to have a positive balance of trade with everybody else so they're buying more most of them were buying of them our nation traders say they do the same thing it cannot be in a world in which the next low zero is zero that everybody's going to be possible so the question is you have to worry about being negative well the answer is what depends what happens with the difference so if people expect by fewer American goods and they sell two American dance the mixed with cash and they start to leave it in the United States which they will of the environment is good for investment then what you do is you build up the kind of investment grade assets which will increase the number of jobs by expanding American firms so the thing that you always have to realize is there are two strategies that you could try to follow one of them is to try to help yourself with the others you can try to him the other guy if you try to help yourself no matter what anybody else does you are going to be better off because you have a leaner tougher smarter economy and you'll be able to explore and to produce domestically if you try to hurt somebody else you're gonna hurt yourself along with it and then the slack will be picked up by some third nation were not part of that particular problem so it's a losing strategy and what trump says well I don't want to lose in the short one but I'm gonna live in the long run there is no longer in this particular case and so you could see what happens with Palmer's they've lost their markets in very large extent they really unhappy with him so he said Michelle upon you transfer payments but they too little they too late and they come from taxes are imposed upon somebody else when they come from printing more money which creates the risk of inflation of the distortion there's no free lunch in this particular game so all you can do by his policy is take the losses which wall on people who bear the brunt of the international markets and socializes but around the mystic market that itself is another form of distortion so when you're going to see is exactly what you see in. which is some kind of slow down so at this point we're in the great tension hi good reforms in my judgment the bylaws deregulation in general tax cuts they're not perfect in the way in which they've done but these are all essentially school and so what you do is you have this Titanic struggle can the improvements that we have made in the domestic market be large enough to offset the homes that we take in the foreign market and the answer to this question is really extremely difficult to make that Richard how one hand. in place in the more you put them it looks as though there's gonna be a great at this spot. hi I'm one of I beg your pardon but I'm going to interrupt just a moment because your what you're saying is all correct with regard to the terror of threats and negotiations with Europe terror threats in negotiations with Mexico and Canada or with Japan but China is a different story to me because all right their business practices are unacceptable and their business practices are selling acceptable there's no going back so those American businesses that were profiting on the basis of trade with China do not have a future they were not planning effectively China is an unstable environment and it's non transparent and it's probably villainous does well what happens is suppose you're right which I think you are I regard these people is completely disreputable everybody kind of knows this if China doesn't defend its intellectual property rights of American companies steals their trade secrets and the other odious kinds of things that will reduce the level of American investment in China and that's all together it would say it seems to me that there's a perfectly legitimate claim of you know there's a particular company a friend that is stealing intellectual property what you do is with who wears you stop putting particular sanctions on but it's not at all clear that what you want to do is to spread the war on the fear that everything in China is equally corrupt because at that particular point you may hurt them but you hurting yourself at the same time and dole ruling games or extremes so you you would regard sanctions as a substitute for terrorists well I I think if they will targeted yes I think but it's extremely difficult to do in the world the second best with China which is what you're in you've got to figure out which way you're going to go but what I'm perfectly confident about is that we have a whole whole piece which is to get out of this stuff even the loss of American agricultural problems going into China is there and remember whatever the corruption is when you try to win best in China when you buy from China you just get in there when you sell the China you just get. in their dollars and the corruption risk to stop by the fact that you don't deliver until the money is guaranteed and so they're very different kinds. you know it you accept sanctions rather than terrace I just wanted. to be targeted there's a particular kind. that stain looking at the apparent slow down the American economy and the winner or loser is number three window number three tariffs I'm.

Where all the 2020 Democratic candidates stand on health care
"You talk about disingenuous promises when it comes to health care I don't think anyone has been more disingenuous more modeled more incoherent than Kamel Harris she has taken five or six positions most of which involve single payer health care but she tries to shaded and back away from it occasionally her new thing and she gave an interview on CNN I play the audio I broke it down on the air she said in the same interview that yes she supports a single payer healthcare for everyone and also will not raise taxes on anyone but the rich in order to pay for it in the math just doesn't even come close Joe Biden was asked about that while he was on the campaign trail in Michigan this week his response to those dual promises from Comilla quote come on I mean what is this is a fantasy world here Gander candor freeze all right yeah he's right look she's got a real problem here this is this is for all the talk about camel Harris is the next great democratic presidential candidate you she's got a real problem when it comes to healthcare and this is going to be a real weak spot for her she is the nominee I think president trump's going to be able to really take advantage of of this because she your call this debate started when she came out and said let's get rid of private health insurance for everybody much just have Medicare phone CNN on C. N. and that first town hall I think she did that's right and then she realized oh oh that's kind of a political problem I don't think a hundred eighty million Americans would like to have their health care taken away from them and so she came back and said that's not actually what I meant but then she said again well maybe that was what I meant and then you know she's been all over the map and this is one area where Americans are going to demand clarity they're gonna want to know are you serious about taking away the health insurance we've come to to use and to enjoy into value are you gonna make it harder for us to see the doctors that we want to see you and make it harder to get access to the hospitals we want to use that's a non starter for Americans but make no mistake that is exactly the planned that Bernie Sanders and camel Harris and Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker of all endorse they've endorsed a plan that would take away your health insurance about a minute left line he and this is a lot to squeeze in a last minute but is there an appetite in your experience on the Republican side do you have any unified health care policy yeah going into the next election well I I think it's hard because there are we do have some disagreements among Republicans but but fundamentally I would say we agree on more than we disagree on and so we should we should settle on some things first of all we got to focus on cost let's figure out you know that the presence then something's on drug pricing he's gonna do some more surprise billing which is where you go to the hospital you end up with this huge bill because your doctor wasn't in network or facility within network hopefully the Senate will take care of that as well and legislation that they're considering and then what I say is for obamacare let's figure out a way to get the federal government out let's figure out a way to check engine to to repeal elements of all we don't like and replace it with more control for states more control for patience and that is something I think all Republicans can agree I know we we don't have to get into too much of the detail here I actually I actually want to but we don't have time in this particular broadcast but I'll be back here for a week and I will do it then let's have you back in let's really T. that what you mean by that yeah one he chan has been my guest here on the guidance and show he is a PhD is also the David and Diana Steffi fellow in American public policy studies here at the Hoover Institution turning a hundred years old the Hoover Institution that is not launch this year our congratulations to Hoover on a big achievement a big milestone in line he always a pleasure to have you want thanks guy

"Is also affiliated with a Hoover Institution and the national bureau of economic research, is quoted in the New York Times, he lives right here in northern California. And the Hoover Institution is a conservative think tank. Fifteen years. He said is really just around the corner for people planning their retirement. The cuts that are being projected would be terrible for a lot of people. This needs to happen and it shouldn't happen. But we've known about these problems for a long time and they haven't been solved. They are getting closer. Are you aware of the fact? That roughly ten thousand baby boomers are retiring each day. But they retire with insufficient numbers of younger people entering the workforce to pay into the system to support them. Are you aware that life expectancy is increasing by two thousand thirty five social security estimates that the number of Americans sixty five or older. Are you sitting down will increase the more than seventy nine million? About forty nine million. Now. And I'm gonna tell you that program is not fixed. We're going to have a big problem. Four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten. Under current law. Cuts would start in two thousand thirty four when the main trust fund is expected to be depleted, or in two thousand thirty five if congress authorizes social security to pay old age benefits through the disability insurance trust fund. I want you to consider a woman, a woman with average annual earnings of fifty one thousand seven hundred ninety five in current dollars over the course of her career. Let's say she retires at sixty seven in two thousand thirty seven the latest social security study indicates that she will be entitled to twenty seven thousand three hundred sixty six dollars in inflation adjusted benefits. But if the trust fund shortfall has not been remedied social security would be permitted to pay or only twenty one thousand dollars. That is a twenty one percent cut. Four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten you bet. I'm asking this question. If you're older you rely on social security. If you're younger, you pay into social security with the expectation that you're going to get something out. Four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten. And by the way. Not a single candidate for president of the United States, democrat or Republican. Is addressing this problem. Let me get right to your calls, not surprised so many of you are calling. What's go to Mike? Calling from Oakland. Mike welcome McKay geo Guinea, John, always, a pleasure in an honor on. I will certainly certainly clued myself in that mix as fifty four year old on a low to moderate income. So I'm really going to have the same problem. A lot of this story. This solution, John. Salaries of the government employees that are causing this problem of deficit problems in all the budgetary problems in the first place. They can't get together. They also have to feel that very much. Are you? You're presuming then that people who work for the federal government are overpaid. Is that what you're saying, saying, all of them? I'm not saying all of that they can do some streaming across the board, and they will get along. Just fine. Are they going to be a blip on the screen? I think it's on the things. Absolutely. They will not feel it in the same way, the rest of us will. Well that's one solution. But it's not a solution. It's a, a partial impact, by the way, most government employees that I do not make exhorbitant salaries. They don't. And, and so I I don't know if that's a solution. Let me ask okay? Yeah. Go ahead. Would you be willing to pay yourself more money into social security? If you were guaranteed that at the end, the money would be there. Did that, you know thirty five years ago when I started paying into it? Yeah. That's the key. It's a matter of trust. But I'm gonna tell you social security goes belly up. We're in deep trouble. I appreciate the call. Mike. Let me go to Jim calling from concord. Jim welcome to. K- GO. Thanks. This is a really really important, touchy subject. I'm I'm not there yet, but I'm going to get there and I have a good job and I work hard and I'm a lawyer and have a little house, some savings, but social security is definitely a big part of the equation. And you know, money is a big pot. And it's this, of course, made it very clear. You cannot identify a dollar for a particular purpose. So my suggestion is to get our act together and stop analysts trillion dollar wars. And he's ridiculous criminal. Tax cuts for the very rich and get back to some type of normalcy, you know, this is this is. Not just a social security issue. It's a tax issue. And if we stop unfair taxes, we can deal with this issue. Remember we. We have a debt now twenty two trillion dollars. That's right. And that, that is growing every day because it compounds in addition to that, we have entitlements, social security, Medicare things are entitled to collect and so one of the problems now is how we balance. All this out. Some have suggested he stopped the wars for one you theoretical boss of the wars, in Iraq, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan cost over five trillion dollars. Oh, more than that more than that. And that's why that's why under wait a minute under Bush, and Obama, the national debt skyrocketed. Well, they're culpable in not looking at the gorilla in the room. It's not that there is not enough money. It's that we're spending on the wrong things that's the issue. Well. National defense national defense is not something people are prepared to cut back on and let me put one of the thing out. I know you want to talk, but we just say, yeah, when we spend money to build weapons. We also employ Americans. Why do you think the president is pushing so hard for this eight billion dollar arm sale to Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates because those weapons are produced here and that puts people to work? You know, I really just hope you continue talking about this. I'm not even I mean we could go on forever. And, and you know this is this, this, this president has compounded. You talk about compound interest. He has come out of the, the, the financial woes this country exponentially. So I just want you to keep talking about it. I will I appreciate your call job, not that I necessarily have an answer, Leslie emails, and then we'll take our break several things can be done to save social security, the cap on individuals making more than one hundred twenty eight thousand four hundred dollars a year, who don't pay into social security above that income should be lifted. And then well often wealthy Americans can pay more into social security, very wealthy, people who don't need it should get a partial refund for their contributions, then forever forgo receiving any social security benefits. The tax rate on income for social security should be raised a combination of these things, along with other measures will have to be done to keep social security solvent. Well, you know, Leslie, there was another thought, and that is that if you make a certain amount of money, and you have that income as long as you have an income, maybe you should forego social security. But do you understand? Somebody is just got an Email from who says, John argue being a little SO teric. There's no crisis yet. Crisis is coming. We'd better prepare for it. Four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten can't wait to hear your comments on this vital issue. John Rothman on K, G O eight.

"A senior fellow at the Hoover Institution since nineteen eighty please welcome back to the program. Professor, Thomas soul. Tom. It took almost an hour for me to get through your resume. My goodness. We need to stop slacking. Oh my goodness. I don't know. I'm I I'm hard at work. What right now Tom are we optimistic pessimistic or somewhere in the middle about where the country's going? I am extremely pessimistic. Because. I see so many signs on a deterioration degeneration both in words and deeds. And I see so few. Countervailing forces at work. You know, the previous election twenty sixteen. I saw it as a choice between a. A serious danger on one side and again T catastrophe on the other. And. Voted voted for Donald Trump? Two years into his presidency. How do you feel? I think in terms of number of policies an argument can be made for good things. He's done. But. The characteristics of the man himself. What's your personal thing, which they would be fused with private individual? But there are people around the world countries the leaders of countries. Who have to decide if they're going to stand with us, or with our enemies off stay away from it. All. And when a president of the United States says things that he backs away from later, and he and he. Fritters away. The. Prestige and more than that the credibility of the office that cell. The time may come when the lives of millions of people may depend on whether others. React to some wanna he gives them. I think he's just kidding. And we can't have a leader that people think is just kidding. In a nuclear age. I mean when John F Kennedy. Sit sit the fleet out there into Atlanta to intercept the Russians fleet he knew he was taking us to break up nuclear war and the Russians knew it, and they knew he meant business, and for that reason there was no war. Now at the same situation arises. Similar in principle. Donald Trump does the same thing and issues that warning. The people on the other side may or may not take that warning seriously, and we may get the nuclear war precisely because of that Mike, professor Thomas soul, the book is discrimination and disparities, it's revised and enlarged edition. Tom two years after the election and reelection of the first black president. Did you have any idea that serious democratic politicians would be discussed discussing reparations? I thought about it. But I I I see no reason why they wouldn't given the nature of the vision of the world that they have. Yeah. You talk in your book about how why we have different outcomes disparities and prerequisites one of the things I remember you're saying is that envy used to be one of the seven deadly sins. It's now been repackaged as social Justice. The difference between equal rights and equal results. Two very different things. Absolutely. I it would take more time than we have to go through all the factors that lead to disparities and outcomes. And they've been there for thousands of years of recorded history. And almost every aspect of life, whether or not even the possibility of racial discrimination, or any other kind of discrimination, one of the things that I mentioned in the first chapter free sample is that a study of people who are young people who became finalists in the net for the national merit scholarship. And families with five children. The first one was the finalist more often than the other four siblings combined that was true in the enforce our family and intrigue jowl families get into Giles families. And when you think of all the things that are the same for people who are born to the same parents and raised under the same roof. Just one factor being different should make such a huge difference in the outcome. Just that there was no basis for assuming equal outcomes when the factors are by. No means that that's similar one or the other factors. You say is under underappreciated in terms of thinking about why there are differences and outcomes is geography. Oh, yes. I mean, one one fact is just dominant. If if you if you think through the implications of it..
