"The show. Glad to be with you. 7022575396 is how you weight in on the conversation lots to talk about, but I'll announce it. So you're comfortable with it. I'll announce it so you can feel that there's an endgame. What is it? What are you talking about? Steve? The vaccine. The vaccine's coming. Didn't you hear the vaccine is coming? In fact, the Trump administration Has said they feel very confident that they will have tens of millions of vaccine doses by the end of this year. Yeah, I like to start right for the jugular when I do my show as I told you. I don't change diapers here. I'm going to put it right out there. So you here and then you can comment and give me your opinion. Here's the question. Will you take it? The Trump Administration is the one that's pushing it. Will You take it. Will you take the vaccine tens of millions off Kuroda virus vaccine's ready to roll by the end of the year. The real question is who's going to take it? Well, will you? Will you take it? How about this? How about if at that time here it is, Let's say December the end of the year. That the mandate is over for masks because you know there's a mandate for masks right now because the cove in 19 let's say that the mandate expires for masks. But the mandate to take the vaccine is issued. Or you'll face similar problems with shopping going to the bank school, etcetera, because that's what's happening now. If you don't have the mask, people are flipping out. Everybody's using this a k a. Karen, you know, flipping out sprouts Whole foods. People are flipping out. You go into target WalMart, You go into a convenience store. Where's your bass? For God's sakes. And if some people say Well, I've got an exemption. We don't care about your stinking exemption. Don't tell me that's not happening because it isthe. I mean, I get the calls here. I've seen it myself. I've seen it myself. I told you a couple weeks ago. I go into a convenience store because I lost my credit card, and it just was gonna say something quickly. I forgot who the hell remembers About this mask business. I had it ahead on the seat of my car. But I forgot. I'm over here and desperation trying to find my credit card before I have to cancel and someone defraud me. And I walk into the store and the young lady with the 5000 earrings and nose rings. Was shaven head with purple and pink hair basically screams at me and says, Dude, Where's your Mass? Get out of here. There's a mandate. I said, Stop flipping out red, and, you know, the rest is history. So you know what I'm talking about. You don't go into the gas station can't by the gallon of milk Can't go to the grocery store. I have an exemption. Steve, By God, I have an exemption. How's that working out for you? Seriously. But let's let's discuss this as adults tonight. How has that worked out for you? I know that The law's the law. I know the constitution. The bill of Rights is on our side. But yet there are language and there is language in mandates. And I know people say, Look, you've got an exemption. You've got a disability Get it from you. Has that worked out for you now some places or a little more liberal and lenient where they don't really believe in the masks anyways, and they'll say I come on in and do business. But overwhelmingly, that's not the case. You know what? And I know it so again. If this is true, and the Trump administration is putting this out, one of the senior officials today said, so tens off millions of vaccines. In fact, this is what they said. We feel very confident. By the year end. We will have 10 Of millions of vaccines to put into American arms. It was a White House senior official. We will begin phase three clinical trials over the next couple weeks with at least one and probably to vaccine candidates. So Trump Administration officials from the White House Are in fact, saying, By the end of this year, they feel very confident that they'll have tens of millions of vaccines to put into American arms. My question is, will you allow it to go into your arm? Will you? Allow it to go into your arm. And again. The reason I ask this is because my understanding and based on my own research and homework, and I've been trying to tell you this that it's going to be masked vaccine chip eventually. Max. VACCINE Chip Mask Vaccine chip, I'll say it one more time Mask vaccine ship Will you do it? Because if the mandate for masks expires because they have a vaccine And it is mandated. Do you take it? Will you taken? Why or why not? Shopping school banking work, etcetera. There's no doubt there are varying opinions here. There's no doubt and that's okay. I'm not here to debate or try to smash your thought process on how you feel about a massacre. Vaccine or not. That's not what this is about. Because I know there are varying opinions when it comes to covert 19. But I have to help inform you because I believe there's a lot of misinformation. In fact, there's a tremendous amount off miss information, you know that and I know that and it's all political. I believe it's all political. That's why Governor Newsome in California has ordered state white closures again. Hello, didn't even phase one. It's like full but blown out pandemic. Jim's churches, 30 counties are infected, one of them Fresno County mower, said County that I know very well that I grew up there. San Diego County, Monterey County a lot of counties In California. 30 of them to be exact. Now our enclosure lock down. That means no business. You know, church, you're not going to church anymore. You're not going to the gym. You're not going into business. It's done. It's over per Governor Newsome or as I like to refer him as well, Comrade Newsome, so Don't tell me It's not political, Steve. The outbreak is outrageous. There is it, though. I mean, is it though? Because, according to representative Palmer, Yes, he's a Republican. He's out of Alabama, according to him Now he's the chairman of the House Republican Policy Committee. He basically said he's very skeptical on how the Corona virus has been portrayed because the initial goal was to flatten the curve, meaning help prevent the American healthcare system from being overwhelmed. That's what I thought, too, as you recall. But, he said, now there are a lot of other agendas going on and the missing information. That has happened brings him a great deal of concern..

"I was really excited to leave high school and leave the Mid West and design theme Parks Disney but Justin didn't really want to wait until he was grown up like I'm still in high school but I feel like got me out of here. I want to get on with my life and my career or whatever. I was just like eager for that to happen. And for most kids the thought of having a career in the arts just age sixteen seems totally unrealistic but not to Justin. He knew for a fact. All it took was a moment and for the right person to come along and discover. One of the kids in the neighborhood was Charlie Cordesman. The Corrs knows lived across the street. Now well I was toiling with high school theater and waiting for someone to recognize my creative genius. Little Charlie cores most talented already been recognized so there he is in Dick Tracy with Warren Beatty. You got a name kid kid kid. What's the name your mother and father gave one mother father who takes care of you scary? That was like the fact that someone that you grew up where the neighborhood kids is now up on the big screen. And you're just still a nobody doing nothing. You Know Fargo and it was so aggravating because we would like get these updates through. Charlie's mom was like. Oh yeah you know he's with Warren Beatty tonight? Or it's doing this thing with Madonna. Let me. He's just the younger kid. He was five six years younger than me. And then there was me with my Amaryllis Marilyn Monroe poster so these are the journals. I kept when I was sixteen. The CAST is so retarded this year. I was watching the show that I go backstage to do a costume. Change like I was told then. I walked back out to get my bag. And when I come back Angie tells me I should stay backstage. Because I'm too distracting than Eric tells me. I'm talking too loud. Hello this is my fifth year backstage. I'm not stupid. Mom called the cores knows this morning. Debbie told her Charlie wasn't home he was in California making the movie hook by Steven Spielberg. He's playing the older of the two boys there. There is Dustin Hoffman. I'm having a Tantrum right now. This damned play. I'm never doing school theatre again. I fucking hate everybody. I WanNa chop everyone up with a weed whacker. I could sit around all day like John and Tim and Ben and life the most of the rest of society and just be taken care of just eat sleep watch. Tv like cows. But no. I take chances I educate myself. I tried to advance the world. Not just follow people. I WANNA fucking fame and I wanted now. I want people to know who I am. Is THAT SO wrong? I think I have PMS. I hate everyone. It could be because I've started sleeping east West. Instead of north south but item. Today was my big break. Debbie called Charlie's mother. She wants me to do a painting for Steven Spielberg Holy Mother fucking cock sucking mother fucking Shit. I called everyone I could and told them. Shit stardom is closer than I ever thought. I'm not going to sleep tonight. I'm just going to faint. I'm sorry but I'm still so shocked I can't right so now. What she wanted me to do is once. Hook had been completed as a sort of thank you gift swords. Debbie wanted to give Stephen like a painted version of this photo that had been taken of the two of them so I saw hook today. It was absolutely wonderful every now and then in the movie I would catch myself thinking Charlie. That was kind of a feminine move. This seemed really prejudicial to me but later mom told me she suspects Charlie might be gay. Wow truth really is stranger than fiction. So what does my immediate future hold do? Charlie and I become friends. Lovers not hook really hit me personally after the movie was out. I was waiting for my ride wallowing in the idea of my lost childhood. It really got me depressed but it made me respect. Children much much more for their imagination. Est free this fielder thing is giving me gas. I'm afraid of sending him my resume because I know he'll be attracted to it and talk to Debbie about me then. I'll faint because it's filled with accomplishments babysitting and the sound of music. What would you do Steven? Spielberg called you up and ask you if you would like to work under him. This is higher than some peoples highest dreams and I would be achieving this before I was even out of high school. How can I deal with this out of all the stressful situations? I've been in not even come close to the time. Debbie asked me to do this painting for Stephen When Stephen. Reads my letter to him. How could he not light up when I write about my future? Plans at Cal Arts Disney and finally combining film with motion to create art. I mean after all. We're both SAGITTARIANS. Holy Shit how. Am I going to deal with this? You're probably saying Justin. I think you're overreacting just a little bit much of you. Well to be honest how could he received his painting letter and a recommendation from Debbie and not do anything? Does this famous scammy. Yes why I guess because no one except the famous knows how celebrities live. It's the unknown the land of big demands and expectations. I'm beginning to wonder if I really want fame before. I just wanted to try it out and see if I liked it like close but now that I'm getting closer with every day. This is getting really scary so I've finished the painting and I gave it to Debbie. I think we have an image of it here. That's the school version of me. Thanks so anyway. Angie came and picked me up on the way to the Walker Art Museum on the way we stopped by the Cosmos to get my letter from Steven Spielberg now. I have the letter here so there was this little note on. Amblin letter had deer. W would you mind playing Messenger for Stephen and passing this onto Justin? Thanks Karen. So here's the letter? It's like from Santa Claus just Steven Spielberg address. Dear Justin thank you so much for the Pastel portrait. You created of Charlie and me not bad. For your first commissioned work you sound like an intelligent and driven young man and I wish you all the best for luck and success in your life and career all my best Stephen. It was kind of a letdown. I think he was probably a horrified when he first saw this north box thinking it was scary gift which it was. I think I was just really delusional. In general I mean when I first got the commission you know I thought it was just the greatest thing ever. I don't think it was until quite some time later. Maybe even some years later that I looked back. And that's when I began to put the pieces together and figure out that maybe it was. My mom had gotten together with Debbie and I think it was maybe one of those conversations that Debbie was just thinking about. You know maybe how hard everything had been for for us. My father died that summer after putting up with lung cancer for five years my mother was diagnosed with ms somewhere in that situation. I figured out I was gay too but I decided I should keep that a secret because there was enough drama going on in the family. I couldn't help but think that maybe she was thinking. Let me do something positive for the family for this kid so I think maybe that really was what the whole commission was about was. Just maybe giving me something positive to look forward to just some positive excitement. She you know was definitely trying to distract me from the reality of what was going on. I think that worked so anyway. I'm Steven did not rescue me and put me to work on his next film. But I did actually accomplished much of what I hope to do my own. I did go to cal arts and I did graduate with a scenic degree and the character animation degree and I did go on to design theme parks for Disney even met Stephen once but I did not mention that illustration which I'm sure is parked in his garage or something so but I thought you might be interested to know what happened Charlie. Because child actors are always such an interesting bunch so I thought maybe he's got like a facebook page or something and I can see you know what he's been up to so this is what I now after doing those major films. He went on to earn a physics degree from mit where he studied aeronautics and Astronautics then went to work for the missile defense team of the US. Government then apparently satiated with that. He went back to school. This time. Yale and picked up a law degree. Two years ago he passed. The New York bar exam left his job as deputy domestic policy analyst for the House Republican Policy Committee to work for Sullivan and Cromwell. One of the top three law firms in the US. But I did find in an interview with the goal paper when he was eighteen. Charlie said in an interview with them by only flirting with fame is boy. This isn't something you need. It's not the big glamorous thing you expect thank you. That was just mortified. Event Way back in two thousand ten in Los Angeles at King King Hollywood..

"Play KGO eight ten once again here's Pat Thursday good afternoon Thursday in and I read this fascinating piece today and immediately started scrambling to get one of the authors on he's Mickey Edwards it's a what it appeared in The New York Times and its headline John Roberts can call witnesses to trump's trial will he and I thought oh holy cow can this possibly be true well Mickey Edwards is my guest he was a member of Congress for sixteen years he served on the house budget appropriations committee and as chairman of the house Republican policy committee yes he's a Republican after leaving Congress he taught for eleven years at Harvard's Kennedy School of government and then he moved to Princeton's Woodrow Wilson school of public and international affairs then back to Washington DC at the Aspen Institute it he's a board member both constitutional project and the project on government oversight and he's written a couple of books the one I'm most interested in I think is the most recent but he wrote re claiming conservative as a conservativism that was in two thousand eight and he wrote this one the parties versus the people how to turn Republicans and Democrats into Americans I cannot wait to get a copy of that book but right now he joins us on the path or stand show professor Edwards thank you so much for being with us sure sure glad to do it and I once I get your book I'm going to invite you back and ask you to talk about that because I think that's it if the title reflects what I think it does I think it's vitally important like you were one of the people who wrote this piece today that a search that that a search that the Chief Justice in an impeachment trial can call witnesses I mean we look at is it looks like he's just a figure head just sitting there doing nothing tell us where your opinion comes from well well he is definitely not a figure head because he is presiding over the trial and so Hey in any ordinary trial situation the judge cayenne require you know witnesses to be heard and the the so when you look at the actual wording of not only the constitution but if you look at the wording of the Senate rules dating back to the eighteen hundreds they make it very clear that the the judge that the research Chief Justice of the Supreme Court is actually the presiding officer over the trial so the senators are the jury the senators aren't aren't the judges said the jury and this gives as we read it a an opening for it either doesn't mean you can do it right you know maybe a lot of pressure against Roberts should not do it but he that he could you know require witnesses to be brought forth we talk about the Senate rules for impeachment the date back to eighteen sixty eight right doesn't eat Senate as they embark upon an impeachment don't they adopt their own rules and one those who it was it was real that rule is still standing change that real okay all righty then because I figured that it would be superseded but it's a standing rule right now so right all right so how would what would the process look like to get the Chief Justice to call witnesses yelled the there it really depends a lot as it always does in any trial was with the judge himself and Roberts could on receiving the information the cover comments that are being made finding out the witnesses are available and have made themselves available I've said that they would answer subpoenas that is the he can't just tell them to show up you know he can himself subpoena them to come before the US Senate and that sh how it would happen and that's what I wanted to help him see the sale every Chief Justice or every justice is going to be very very careful about appearing to be partisan yes and that that's the problem so he can do it we're convinced we we spent a lot of time looking at the lawn to presidents and the and the rules but that's a long way from us saying that the Chief Justice we're going to take it on themselves to do that so they didn't make this brief and try to push him that way yeah that that that it do you make this brief would go before the court and you know he's not in this role is not functioning sitting or the court dealing with that so he can't just buying that himself and yeah I mean we could probably do is try to get rid of it we got a time problem here nine nine well the one of the house managers could Adam Schiff stand up and make a motion and the motion is that the Chief Justice call appropriate witnesses according to what we know about witness availability and how pertinent it is to the testimony that's that's being delivered or the evidence the evidence yeah he is not a member of the Senate I think that I don't know whether you do it as a house manager but Chuck Schumer could certainly do it yes yes yes and then once that's done if the Chief Justice says yeah I think I'm going to do this I'm no you will put in those words but I'm gonna go ahead and issue a subpoena could a majority of senators over rule him because we've heard it only takes fifty one votes of the senators to overrule any decision that the Chief Justice makes all right I think that may be true the thing is if you are Susan Collins or your Cory Gardner or early summer Caskey and maybe even you know people like rob Portman others you know who's to say we are going to holder ruled the Chief Justice in order to block hearing a direct witness like yeah I a longstanding conservative and and Republican leader like John Bolton I mean that is putting a lot of pressure on them I mean I think it's gonna be a lot harder for Mitch McConnell to hold all his people in line in order to try to overturn a ruling by the Chief Justice either that's gonna be the that would be politically really disastrous so is he issues a subpoena is it like any other subpoena at the White House refused to comply or sued to prevent compliance well the White House can try but but Bolton is already said that if he has subpoenaed he will respond yeah he's a private service he is not working for the federal government and at this point and he he has every right to say when he he's made it pretty clear that if subpoenaed he's not going to resist it he you know is now the president could you know claim executive privilege hi but the I think in that case the Chief Justice himself could say what he does because I fear privilege does not apply in this case so that kind of ruling from right from his bench there at the trial sure I did not know that that's that's really good at the other person that I think of should be called and I think the the house managers would love to have called is Mick Mulvaney because of the statements that he made publicly which buttress their case already do you think it would be possible that the Chief Justice well see his testimony as being important yes I I think that well the the and I think others too who were present in some of those meetings I think that he is you know he's still working for the White House still working for the president I think that if the president were to claim executive privilege on anything involving Milady I think he would it would be harder to overturn that but bows possible right now it's all the political pressure and what we hope is that what we've done with our article is to ratchet up the pressure a little bit more you know to the you know John Bolton yeah I think wanted this out there and I think John Roberts reads the newspapers yeah I I think that and you know after that the new year's greeting that he issued you know about maintaining our democracy and all that kind of stuff you can read between the lines perhaps there and think that this is a guy who really wants to do the right thing and he won I absolutely think her eyes I actually think that I mean I think a lot of people on the left have never accepted Robert's because he's more conservative any of the more conservative view of jurisprudence but no I think he has shown repeatedly that he wants to do the right thing I mean I I think it shocked everybody when he found the way to uphold the affordable Care Act so that's not the only thing that he's done I mean he has he's kind of the person now the people are are looking to I don't wanna say just like Kennedy but sort of like like Kennedy was so how about this you know he wants to be fair we we agree that he he wants to be fair he doesn't want to be seen as being partial in this impeachment trial especially this is vitally important would he then if he agreed to subpoena say John Bolton would he tossed a bone to the Republicans to the trump defense team and call one of the one or both Biden's or call Adam Schiff or call the whistle blower the people they want to testify it is well I think the the whistle blower is protected by law I think that it is possible but I I you know then he get any really is getting himself into you know viewing this whole thing is politics as opposed to looking at his trial because the relevance right their relevance charges yes and show Biden himself is not relevant to each of the charges against the president either as his son the so I think Robert's feels Hey these are you know to pulled the dignity of the court I think he also wants to uphold the power of the court I don't think he wants to look like yeah he is pressured to play a political gains be we wants to be a judge yeah I have a judge of the trial says this is what I rule that's right it's my my right to to make the ruling and I'm not going to have to see what what stop can I throw to the other side yeah well let me let me veer off course just a little bit here has there are three co equal branches of government and you're a former member of Kong Congress an expert on American government could you speak a little bit on that the I mean Congress has tremendous power as a co equal branch but increasingly and I'm not just talking within the trump administration increasingly it seems that representatives and senators abdicate their responsibility their authority their power to the executive branch when it's headed by a member of their own party which you talk a little bit sure the George Washington famously said in his farewell address as prose that is a do not create political parties he did not hedge around it he did not say well maybe they can do this service in your area do not create political parties he could not have been stronger you you know if you go back to people like whom the yellow the great political philosophers don't create political powers parties and and we did it and the the purpose of a party is to win the person of a party is to have an agenda a menu of that I think all parties believe sincerely that what they're proposing is the best thing for the country but their job is to win and you win by defeating the other side that's why Mitch McConnell because of the party system you know prevented Merrick garland from even getting a hearing but Democrats did it too I mean I am very very critical of my own Republican Party but Harry Reid when he was the Majority Leader of the U. S. so that was pretty bad too and and is so it's in the nature of the system so you know reporter is do what they do because that's their nature that's their job political parties do what they do and their job is to defeat the other guys so that their policies prevail right now the Republicans in the Senate hi I put them in a couple different category I I think there are those who really really believe that it was getting the tax cuts getting the right people on the Supreme Court of the federal bench are so important they're willing to override constitutional considerations because this is their party agenda and they personally believe in it but they also start thinking you know we we have to win so we we have to look strong so we don't lose the next election or they have to sorry I have to win but I have to survive a party primary for and that's because the political party system allows party activist voting in the primary to tell other people they can't be on the ballot so the activists who are the most part is the most ideological choose who even the people in California are not California because you guys were smart enough to change your loss but and the forty seven of the fifty states you know the in the party primary they can keep you off the ballot yeah and so do you have people in the Senate who are afraid of losing the title the applause the the celebrity the you know whatever the benefits are that they perceived by being called senator and they know that it really doesn't matter now so forget California program let's say you're in Massachusetts that it really doesn't matter of all the people overwhelmingly in that state or for you if the people who will vote in the party primary against you your debt and so you you've got senators now who are looking and say well a few tweets from trump will get me a primary opponent and all the people who are the trump activists who are a lot more engaged than just your average voter I would show up and that will be out of office so Richmond that recently of the number of voters in the United States to act identify as independence has surpassed the number who identify as Republicans or Democrats absolutely everywhere there are more you know I have a house in Massachusetts and it's you know very liberal democratic state everybody thinks that loss of democratic state the majority people are under the rolled up the majority but the largest number are.

"house republican policy committee" Discussed on All In with Chris Hayes

"Are following the breaking news out of Iraq where we have confirmation that Iran has launched missiles missile strikes to Iraqi basis at least two Iraqi basis that also house. US forces we have no confirmation yet of the assessment of damage or casualties around the state media is now saying that Eh. They launched these two rounds of missile strikes. And this is I think important and really actually crucial we think about this moment around saying there's no there's no retaliation for America For the latest attacks. Then they will stop attacking but if America tax than their response will be crushing and widespread. It seems to me that this is a calculation nation here by the Iranian regime. At least and getting to some point that does not further. Climb up the escalatory ladder that we have now been on for quite some time and is threatening to plunged the entire region into valuable war joining me now former Republican congressman from Oklahoma Mickey Edwards. Former chair of the House Republican Policy Committee and former Democratic Congressman from Maryland. Donna Edwards also with me Sam Cedar host the majority were podcast and MSNBC Contributor Angelina Maxwell host of signal boost on Sirius Xm and an MSNBC political analyst. Donna let me start with you the the way that we talk about. This tends to resolve revolve around the president. What decision when will he make? and WHO's influencing but America's democratic nation with the constitution that gives the power to declare war the the Congress United States represents this democratic nation. All of its citizens citizens should not be in the hands of one man particularly one man with the faculties that the current president has it seems to me extremely important that across Democrat and Republican particularly Democratic Party Democrat. Cows come out strongly to say no war with Iran. This is madness and do whatever they can to halt escalation is that a possibility ability as UCLA. I do think that there will be in there. Already have been tonight really strong voices coming from speaker. Pelosi herself that we do not want a war with Iran and very sadly this is so reminiscent of where we've been before and I think it's also important for the American American people to step up and declare that there should be no war with Iran and we are at a place where you know. There's a possibility that there could be some some de escalation but it requires seen voices and cool heads to preside both in the White House which I don't expect but certainly coming out with a strong voice from Democrats in the in the Congress and I would expect others who do not want to continue. You need to put service men and women in harm's way and to jeopardize the safety of of the American People Mickey you know there's been an interesting Fisher Asia and the Republican and Conservative collision on this question We we've seen it sort of break out in the open. Sometimes rampaul was on our air earlier. Senator from Kentucky urging us not to enter into worth around. There are some conservative commentators. WHO HAVE THE president's ear who also said the same? This seems to me kind of testing ground of that. What do you you expect to see from Republicans on the hill? Well if we stay with what they have been saying for. Many many years is that we should be very cautious. Che's about going into war but they're the bigger issue here is what you were talking about Chris. So I would hope that the congress is able to back the president op and not have is go into a major war but it's also important that Congress start reasserting its primacy in the field of international affairs primacy in in terms of deciding when we go to war because it's not just this war but with this man in the in the White House or frankly any president the idea that the congress would step by now. You were the democratic voice. Chris you've been talking about and that the Congress would back off and let any president just on his own whim or any other reason take take the country into war is unacceptable and it's time Republicans and Democrats both came together on that one issue. It just crazy to me to view what's happening right now. Does this thing that just happening out there. In the world like we're we live in a democratic society precisely so that we can exert some control and and that's part of constitutional designed by design the founders constitutional design that there are some democratic control. I mean the idea that regardless of what we have in terms of casualties that we must must respond is absurd. We have agency people are going to call for de-escalation. They're either going to call for now tonight or they're going to do it. Eighteen years from now after after what we've been in Iraq and so the bottom line is every single. Democratic presidential candidate should tonight come out and say no war with Iran every single member of the Democratic Caucus in the house and the Senate should be backing the bills by Tim Kaine am by Sanders and Kana in the House and stopping funding and stopping topping the legal auspicies for this war. Somebody's skills worse than Iraq because at least with the Iraq war in two thousand three there was a reason they put forward a reason season and so an American citizen say while there's WMD's now it turned out that that was a lie right but there wasn't articulated reason that the administration collectively is trying to put forward to tell the American people. This is why we're doing this. I have no idea why this is happening Chris. The American people likely do not understand why we are on on the brink of war with Iran and I agree with Sam. All of the Democratic candidates have a chance to step forward in this moment and show that they can be competent. They can be strong and stand on principle there. There is no reason for this and this moment we need to stay take a step back a giant step back over this cannot be a partisan listen moment the Republicans in Congress have to do the same thing. They took the same oath of office. They swore to uphold the same constitution and adjust having Democrats oppose. What's happening what the war is about without any information here but but they can't do it alone? Republicans have to say in this this case this is American lives at risk and we are going to take back the constitutional power. The Congress has the it can't be just a democratic down the the politics of of this which in some senses seemed secretaries. We await at this moment to find out if there were casualties. Both among the Iraqi against Iraqi servicemembers emmers on these Iraqi bases or American service members but of course the politics matter because the politics are part of what will produce the outcomes that happen and the decision that gets made. I mean again. This is all part of Democratic Self Governance. It does seem to me that the war weariness is very real thing it shows up in the polling. It showed up on the campaign trail. There's very very little appetite. Wait for a war with Iran. If you pull that question and even the airstrike against Sulejmani which a to my mind. Reckless escalation along this trajectory was was essentially partisan split. Like do you trust. The Democrats will have the courage of their convictions about how they navigate this. Well I have to say I mean I do you. I mean I remember you know the lead up to the Iraq war in two thousand and whatever it was three four and you know people believe the evidence that was in front of them. I never believed it. But even in the face of thousands and thousands of people taking to the streets still legislators felt a need to like go right up and march toward war. We cannot afford that to have that outcome again. And I think it's incumbent on members of Congress but the American people have to speak up and we know that they're worried because they wanted to pull out of Iraq and Afghanistan in and out of the region all along now here. We are escalating again. And it's time to put a put the brakes on this coming. Both from the Congress in terms of them exercising their authorities Mickey had said but also coming from the American people saying we do not want another war in that region Gen Party. The ball is in the in the hands of the people themselves the power to declare war being Congress means that the people are supposed to make these decisions and this is what they have to show up a child meetings APP to contact their members of Congress and they have to be hurt and there should be a vote. I mean there's going to be a partner. Solution says there's going to be privileged privileged resolution and there should be there should be a vote in the United States. Senate absolutely not say I am struck by how many democratic politicians look I have very little expectations of Republicans at this point. I'm sorry about that but I am struck. By how few how how little maturation there seems to be when I look at the democratic accredit politicians who are coming out there and equivocating at this point because the American public has grown since two thousand two and to a certain extent I remember that time time vividly millions of people who are in those streets at that time and the fact is there was a lot of people who are shell shocked after nine eleven that Shell shock does not exist amongst the American American public anymore but you look at the eyes of a lot of these democratic politicians and they look like deers. If your headlights they need to lead to fight back against what is off. Obviously an attempt to draw this country into war by. Who's you know what who who's driving this bus? It's unclear but it but we cannot allow the the idea that the president of the United States can Willy Nilly create provocations. That dragged this country into this type of quagmire again. The American people have to understand why why we're entering into a military conflict. They don't know that tonight and that's a really big problem. And the communication here. I mean we just go back to say what the facts are on the ground in terms of the the latest loop. There was an attack outside Kirkuk a rocket attack there have been increasing rocketfire Adam at American forces from Shia militias in Iraq. Starting in October Tober Brett mcgurk said that hadn't happened. Eight years that part that itself was part of a escalatory cycle that started with the withdrawal from the Iran deal that kills an American American contractor back in December outside Kirkuk and killed an American contractor wounded several American service members there was a retaliatory strike by the US. It Killed Twenty five Shia militia militia members in Iraq and then that storm the embassy which was essentially disbursed with no casualties and then in response to that wildly provocative talkative s escalating act of taking out killing Qassem solely money. So that is that is the situation that has bras tonight to these reports of ground-to-ground missile. Fire from the Iranian government directed at Iraqi basis that whole both Amar Iraqi service members and American service members Donald. What do you think is happening right now? We have reports that Vice President Pence has briefed Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer Pelosi tweeted tweeted out. She's closely monitoring the situation falling bombings targeting. US troops in Iraq. We must ensure the safety of our service members including ending needless provocations.

Iran attacks Iraqi bases housing US troops in retaliation for Soleimani's death

"Breaking news out of Iraq where we have confirmation that Iran has launched missiles missile strikes to Iraqi basis at least two Iraqi basis that also house. US forces we have no confirmation yet of the assessment of damage or casualties around the state media is now saying that Eh. They launched these two rounds of missile strikes. And this is I think important and really actually crucial we think about this moment around saying there's no there's no retaliation for America For the latest attacks. Then they will stop attacking but if America tax than their response will be crushing and widespread. It seems to me that this is a calculation nation here by the Iranian regime. At least and getting to some point that does not further. Climb up the escalatory ladder that we have now been on for quite some time and is threatening to plunged the entire region into valuable war joining me now former Republican congressman from Oklahoma Mickey Edwards. Former chair of the House Republican Policy Committee and former Democratic Congressman from Maryland. Donna Edwards also with me Sam Cedar host the majority were podcast and MSNBC Contributor Angelina Maxwell host of signal boost on Sirius Xm and an MSNBC political analyst. Donna let me start with you the the way that we talk about. This tends to resolve revolve around the president. What decision when will he make? and WHO's influencing but America's democratic nation with the constitution that gives the power to declare war the the Congress United States represents this democratic nation. All of its citizens citizens should not be in the hands of one man particularly one man with the faculties that the current president has it seems to me extremely important that across Democrat and Republican particularly Democratic Party Democrat. Cows come out strongly to say no war with Iran. This is madness and do whatever they can to halt escalation is that a possibility ability as UCLA. I do think that there will be in there. Already have been tonight really strong voices coming from speaker. Pelosi herself that we do not want a war with Iran and very sadly this is so reminiscent of where we've been before and I think it's also important for the American American people to step up and declare that there should be no war with Iran and we are at a place where you know. There's a possibility that there could be some some de escalation but it requires seen voices and cool heads to preside both in the White House which I don't expect but certainly coming out with a strong voice from Democrats in the in the Congress and I would expect others who do not want to continue. You need to put service men and women in harm's way and to jeopardize the safety of of the American People Mickey you know there's been an interesting Fisher Asia and the Republican and Conservative collision on this question We we've seen it sort of break out in the open. Sometimes rampaul was on our air earlier. Senator from Kentucky urging us not to enter into worth around. There are some conservative commentators. WHO HAVE THE president's ear who also said the same? This seems to me kind of testing ground of that. What do you you expect to see from Republicans on the hill? Well if we stay with what they have been saying for. Many many years is that we should be very cautious. Che's about going into war but they're the bigger issue here is what you were talking about Chris. So I would hope that the congress is able to back the president op and not have is go into a major war but it's also important that Congress start reasserting its primacy in the field of international affairs primacy in in terms of deciding when we go to war because it's not just this war but with this man in the in the White House or frankly any president the idea that the congress would step by now. You were the democratic voice. Chris you've been talking about and that the Congress would back off and let any president just on his own whim or any other reason take take the country into war is unacceptable and it's time Republicans and Democrats both came together on that one issue. It just crazy to me to view what's happening right now. Does this thing that just happening out there. In the world like we're we live in a democratic society precisely so that we can exert some control and and that's part of constitutional designed by design the founders constitutional design that there are some democratic control. I mean the idea that regardless of what we have in terms of casualties that we must must respond is absurd. We have agency people are going to call for de-escalation. They're either going to call for now tonight or they're going to do it. Eighteen years from now after after what we've been in Iraq and so the bottom line is every single. Democratic presidential candidate should tonight come out and say no war with Iran every single member of the Democratic Caucus in the house and the Senate should be backing the bills by Tim Kaine am by Sanders and Kana in the House and stopping funding and stopping topping the legal auspicies for this war. Somebody's skills worse than Iraq because at least with the Iraq war in two thousand three there was a reason they put forward a reason season and so an American citizen say while there's WMD's now it turned out that that was a lie right but there wasn't articulated reason that the administration collectively is trying to put forward to tell the American people. This is why we're doing this. I have no idea why this is happening Chris. The American people likely do not understand why we are on on the brink of war with Iran and I agree with Sam. All of the Democratic candidates have a chance to step forward in this moment and show that they can be competent. They can be strong and stand on principle there. There is no reason for this and this moment we need to stay take a step back a giant step back over this cannot be a partisan listen moment the Republicans in Congress have to do the same thing. They took the same oath of office. They swore to uphold the same constitution and adjust having Democrats oppose. What's happening what the war is about without any information here but but they can't do it alone?
