Don Lemon's Quest for Clicks

"When you set up the interview with CNN, did they tell you because it was a disaster, it was a complete meltdown by Don. I've been on the receiving end of that before. Where he gets spun up in wanting an answer and thinks it's a drama and needs a viral moment and wants to get ratings. What was the setup? Did they tell you that that's what it was going to be? And you said, yes, or were you surprised by Don lemons approach to you? No, you know, as you know, their producers call you the night before and kind of talk about your take on whatever it is that you want to talk about. So the producer was very nice and probably haven't said, yeah, we're going to talk about Trump's dinner at Mar-a-Lago and it's fine. I gave him two cents about it. I asked him, you know, is there any other topic there? I should plan on covering and he basically said no, that's what we're going to talk about. So I knew I was walking in. Into a topic that was hot. And. It was professional. I didn't get my too well. Okay, that's the key thing. What would professionalism in that situation look like to lend cortisol, who's an advertising executive and a veteran of the State Department? Well, the very basic part of that formula is allowing your guests to finish your answer. I spent about ten minutes trying to finish a single thought because Donald lemon, which is jumped in and imposed his rules on what it is and what it is that I couldn't say. And second, I started answering some things that he wasn't expecting, then he would interrupt me and try and impose his answer on it.

Managing the Digital Strategy of the Trump Administration

"Do in the Trump administration? And how did you end up in the Trump administration? Well, you know, I did what a lot of immigrants do, which is, you know, figure things out here in my new home country. And they went to school. I ended up in the advertising business in New York. I did pretty much your mad men type advertising for 20 or so years. And at some point, I ended up with an ad agency that had a guy named Donald Trump as a client. And so where did you first go into the Trump administration at the Department of State or somewhere else? No, I went straight to Department of State. I came in as the deputy assistant secretary for digital strategy and my goal was just to bring what I did when I learned from the private sector to make our foreign policy the best for the world.

Former Assistant Sec. Of State Len Khodorkovsky's Journey to America

"Welcome Len. It's good to have you. Can you tell us your background and your connection with former president Trump? Well, thank you for having me. I appreciate that. My background is, I am a refugee from the Soviet Union. I came to the United States with my family and early 80s during the Cold War. This was way before Gorbachev and it was still hard for Jewish refugees to get out of the Soviet Union. We got lucky because the KGB the new pager B tree in town like my grandparents apartment, so they threw us out. And we had three weeks to pack our stuff and get to get out. That's what we did. So I came to America because, you know, because of the institutional antisemitism in the Soviet Union and being here, I'm from America. And I think we won the lottery.

What Is the American Legislative Exchange?

"Tell us about Alec. Well, Alec is America's largest nonpartisan and keyword voluntary membership organization of state legislators. We've been doing it for nearly 50 years. We'll celebrate that anniversary next October, but everything we do is centered around our three core principles, limited government, free markets, and federalism, and we've got hundreds and hundreds of legislators from around the country in D.C.. This week, not only sharing best practices from around the states, but they're also dedicated on restoring that balance of power of government back to the states. I think all of us would agree that power has become too concentrated in Washington to concentrated in that fourth branch of government, the bureaucracy, the administrative state. And so we're all here. We're fired up. We've got a lot of newly elected legislators in town.

Immigration Policy Falls on Supreme Court's Shoulders

"Cut from special report last night, there's an argument Supreme Court yesterday, two and a half hours on whether or not Texas and Louisiana can sue the secretary of HHS for failing to enforce the law as it is written. It's very complicated to try and explain it Supreme Court case in a minute. So I took a minute and a half on special report last night, cut number 23. But if you go back, you Hewitt to September of 2021. You had secretary Mallorca, right? In his memo and he says, the following quoting here, the majority of the more than 11 million undocumented or otherwise removable non citizens in the United States have been contributing members of our communities across the country for years. The fact in individual is a removable non citizen will not alone be the basis of an enforcement action against them. The department's personnel are to use their discretion and focus the department's enforcement resources in a more targeted way. And then you look at ice deportations over the past three years. I mean, look at the number right there. 60 9000 bottom right hand and look at the early number, 267,000. Hugh Hewitt, there's a three, almost 300 percent drop in deportations. So they're clearly have chosen not to follow federal immigration law. The memorandum that the secretary put out at the heart of this case poses the complex question of what does Xiaomi in this statute that they're debating things. There's three parts before the court trace. And it looks to me like there are 6 votes to say that Texas, Louisiana, other states consume. And they'll probably get a majority to say that Xiaomi shall do as much as you can. But the remedy, which the chief justice kept coming back to injustice Kavanaugh as well. What do we do if we tell you the memorandum was wrongfully issued? What's going to happen because we can't make ice do things. It's just up to the Supreme Court to say what the law is. The law is going to say, I think that that memorandum was inappropriately issued. But after that's done, the court can't order ice on a day to today basis to go round up people. So we'll be back where we started with a slap on the wrist for the administration, I think.

If you disagree if the United States disagree with this zero COVID policy, why not let it be known to everybody? Shame on every part of the Biden administration for their silence here. They were silent when Hong Kong was put under the thumb. They were silent when a million Uighurs are put into concentration camps. They have been silent over the suppression of the Catholic Church in China. They are now silent, as people are hustled away into taxicabs in little bits, freedom, moving through. We get to see little glimpse at former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tonight, tweeted less than an hour ago. We stand with the Chinese people.

DeSantis Hits Apple for Threatening to Drop Twitter From App Store

"Yesterday on this program, I invade against Apple, threatening to remove Twitter from the App Store. And I'm glad to set the stage. I'm glad to lead the way, but when the hammer came down, it was Ron DeSantis yesterday hitting in the afternoon in a speech, apple for threatening to remove Twitter, cut number 19, the governor of Florida. And then as you've seen that go on in China, you know, there's reports that Apple is not allowing the protesters to use this AirDrop function where they're trying to communicate. That obviously is providing aid and comfort to the CCP. And so you see that report and that's very concerning. And then when you also hear reports that Apple is threatening to remove Twitter from the App Store because Elon Musk is actually opening it up for free speech and is restoring a lot of accounts that were unfairly and illegitimately suspended for putting out accurate information about COVID. That's like one of the main things that's being reinstated. So many things these experts were wrong at and you had people on Twitter that were calling that out and Twitter, the old regime and Twitter, their response was to try to just suffocate the dissent. And in the Elon Musk knows that's not a winning formula. And so he's providing free speech. And so if Apple responds to that by nuking them from the App Store, I think that that would be a huge, huge mistake, and it would be a really raw exercise of monopolistic power that I think would merit a response from the United States Congress. And so don't be a vassal of the CCP on one hand and then use your corporate power in the United States on the other to suffocate Americans and try to suppress their right to express themselves. And so I'm glad I'm glad things are changing at Twitter. And I know there's a lot of work to do with big tech generally, but this is big progress. And we're really happy that that is now happening.

Do you think that maybe Democrats lead in small donors because a lot of the Republican small donors are tithing first? I think that's a real possibility. I mean, regular churchgoers certainly tend to vote Republican and they understandably put their own churches first for political giving as I think is appropriate. It's also possible for you that just inflation by our voters a little bit more.

Musk Claims Apple Threatens to Remove Twitter From App Store

"Senator cotton, I do want to talk with you about Apple and Twitter. Elon Musk has said today that Apple is considering moving Twitter from removing Twitter from the App Store, how does that strike you? How would you respond to that? I think that would be a very ill advised decision like in book and Apple. I understand that he may not care for Elon Musk, maybe he's a little envious of Elon's Musk massive success as a businessman, but remove a widely used social media app from Apple's App Store simply because he has political disagreements with Elon Musk or the direction he's taking Twitter would simply be inviting aggressive legislative and regulatory action in Washington. Now, senator, I note that you are a fairly frequent user of Twitter as is your team over at the senator's office. Have you noticed any difference in Elon Musk took over? I have not. I haven't noticed a single thing different. Now here, the only difference I've noticed is a bunch of liberals predicting that Twitter is about to collapse into frozen dysfunction in any moment now. And I think that that was maybe two weeks ago when it was predicted to happen a few days later. So the predictions are increasingly wrong. Now you're proven wrong, but you know, I probably put my money on the guy that sends rockets to the moon.

Who Is Nick Fuentes?

"Jake, let's first talk about Nick Fuentes. Would you know Nick Fuentes? And by the way, I've condemned the president meeting with him. I know about him because he's harassed Ben Shapiro for years, anti semitic white supremacist, not the 24 years old. Would you know him if you bumped into him on a train? I would, yes, because I've seen him in media coverage in recent in the last couple of years. I might recognize him now before this I've only seen him harassing Ben Shapiro and crosswalks and saying his vile disgusting things. Do you think president Trump has any staff at all down there that vets whoever comes in to Mar-a-Lago? It's a public restaurant. And I know Kanye is himself a menace to civil discourse, but do you think he would have known it was Nick Fuentes? I have no idea Ben Shapiro had an interesting tweet, which I thought was pretty apt, which was basically he said. I'm going to miss I'm not going to misquote because I got to pull it up. He said, a good way to act a good way to not accidentally dine with a vile racist and anti semite, you don't know, is not to dine with a vile racist. I said, you do know. That's well put. And Kanye has gone there now and really flying the full freak flag on Jews, but the Nick Fuentes has been there a long time. I'm just wondering as a litmus test, whether or not people know who he is. They will now. But I just can't understand not having a team of people to vet the people who walk in to Mar-a-Lago.

"Where did you catch up with Christian uno? No, what was one of the rare phone interviews? Oh, that's fine. And what did he say to you? Is he running for president? If you read the story, kind of hedges on that. You know, I don't think it means this time, but I think that it's not something off the table for the future for new new. And I think this really interesting because he's charismatic, he's run and won four times. Now, a New Hampshire governor's term is only two years long. However, that's still four elections that you have to run in. And he's won. And he's right, he has governed as a conservative. He's not only run as a conservative, he has governed as a conservative. And successfully, in a state that is very, very independent, if people don't know this in the state of New Hampshire, more people are registered independent voters than they are Republican or Democrat. And so, you know, it's not an easy thing to just go ahead in a way. You don't just walk out and say, yeah, I'm running again, you guys. You have to work pretty hard for that.

They've got to be fired and if he doesn't, he got to ask himself whether or not he wants to continue to be seen with known anti semites and white supremacists, Nick Fuentes is not a Kanye sort of nuts person, Kanye, I wouldn't be seen with either, but or at yay as he's called by Yi, as you saw by many people online.

All I know is that it's a year after omicron surge officials see a reduced COVID threat this winter, who are the officials, Anthony Fauci, does anyone care no? Really? I mean, I've never seen such shattered credibility from the public health agencies ever. A lasting legacy of COVID far right platform spreading health myth. Now, I think that's absurd. Here I am, a conservative talk show host center Wright, perhaps got my two boosters, told this in the beginning, get your two vaccines, got your three boosters. I've got them still haven't had COVID. I fully expect somewhere down the road. I will get it, and I help my immune system has developed the necessary antibodies. No misinformation, there is a tunnel full of people who want to worry about that and that they're fine, but they don't do it on right wing. They find each other everywhere. You don't need to say this is a conspiracy theory. It's not. The CDC dropped the ball the FDA dropped the ball. Parts of the Trump administration originally, while they were doing warp speed, dropped the ball on the communications because they were being driven by Tony Fauci. And now the entire government is wrapped up in trying to prove that they didn't do anything wrong. In fact, public health completely botched the entire pandemic.

What's Next for the Ukrainians?

"Let's get right to the essential thing, which is the Ukrainian winter offensive. Two stories about this in The New York Times that Ukraine expects to go over to the offensive. Now, I don't, I'm not a military experience. I just read the books about the winter war in Finland. And the Russians, you know, what do you think are the odds that any significant change in the battlefield will occur now that winter is descending upon Russia and its neighbor Ukraine? I think the odds of a significant shift are low, but not impossible because of the ongoing collapse of Russian brow. Having said that, you are sufficiently tuned in to military tactics to know that offense is. One is to three meetings. You got to have three times as many troops on offensive overcome a dug in component and that's why the Russians had a lot of trouble at the front end of the Ukrainian defense, Russia didn't have that three to one ratio overwhelmed them. Now, down south, the Ukrainians who have to come up with the three to one. But here's how they're compensated. They're using special force brilliantly. They are used in the advanced Thrones. They are maneuvering around and cutting out supply lines. So there's a balance there. What I'm watching also suited to kind of conclude an overview is the electric grid on the Ukrainian side. You know, in a sense, we're in a tale of two wars here. One is the groundwork to the south. Ukrainian winning. But in the air war over you in the strike against the electric grid going into the winter very significant. That's the other war we ought to be focused on.

There's a fence there. But Greg Abbott sent them there. Yesterday, governor desantis sent to plain loads of migrants to the United States without permission to Martha's Vineyard. They're trying to draw attention to the lie that the vice president said last weekend when she said not once but twice the border is secure. How big of an issue is this and how much of an issue will it be in 2024? So Democrats are all about a word. It's called disinformation. Some people say misinformation, pretty much the same thing. You want to define it. This information. They're all about disinformation. They will look at a border where millions of people are pouring through from prisons from everywhere. They're emptying their prisons into the United States. We're like a dumping ground. And they'll say they're look you in the eye and they'll say we have a secure border. We have wonderful economy. We have no inflation. I mean, he had a party the other day on inflation and they just announced the worst numbers in the market was the 7th worst day in the history of our country. And he's having a party. They're all about this information. They will look you in the eye and lie to you. Well, they're lying about the border. They're lying about inflation. They're lying about our country because our country is being poisoned from within and we're in big trouble unless something happens. And I hope we're going to do well in November 8th and I hope we're going to do well in 24. Well, on the education issue, if you're referring to that is the poison within the school, loss of learning for children was immense over the last two years. Masking is mandatory in some places schools. I think are mostly open. Do you think Democrats have to pay that ticket their policies at the local level? Is that going to matter in Youngstown? For example, on Saturday night, what they do is they'll try and talk to themselves out like defund the police, all of a sudden they say, oh, no, we never said that. You know, they're looking in the eye, they'll say we never said it. They're actually still saying to fund the police. Same thing with education with those mandates and with all of the things that they've done and what they've done to some people, some students, young people, I think. They live with it for the rest of their lives, actually. It's a very sad, very, very sad situation. But I think a lot of these young people are going to live with this for the rest of their lives. So, mister president, what will you tell the audience in Youngstown on Saturday night that JD will do differently to turn the country around? Because it's going in the wrong direction, according to three quarters of the people. Well, it was going in the right direction. And now it's going and don't forget, I ended nafta. The worst trade deal ever made with the USMCA. And it's a gold mine that deal for us. The problem is Mexico and Canada want to what they want to change it. They want the deal change because they're getting killed by it. So Mexico and Canada, which have ripped us off for many, many years with nafta. They want that deal change and they want to change as soon as possible. And I understand that they're starting a negotiation. They shouldn't change anything. That's been an incredible thing for manufacturers for Ohio for every place. And we'll be talking about that. We'll be talking about a lot of things. We made a lot of great trade deals. The reason we have things going is that we have made with South Korea with Japan. We've made some and with China, we made an incredible trade deal with China for manufacturers, but most specifically for the farmers, the farmers are doing so much now China is going to say because they don't respect our leadership. China is going to say we're not going to be living by that deal. They're already starting to say it because this was a deal where they were buying billions and billions of dollars of products from our farmers and from our manufacturers. It's an incredible deal. And you know it's a deal I didn't talk about that much because right after making that deal COVID came in and once COVID came in, I sort of had it with China..

"I don't think the people of this country would stand for it. Now, I want to go to China, which you just mentioned. You're a real estate guy first and forever. Have you looked at the Chinese real estate market? Do you think it's going to collapse? Well, it could very well collapse. China is not doing very well right now. One of the reasons is because I put on tariffs the likes of which nobody's ever seen before, not one president took in ten cents of tariffs or of taxes or if anything, no money ever came from China to the U.S.. What I did is I put on hundreds of billions of dollars worth of tariffs coming into the United States that pay tax. And Biden, as much as he wants to do it for his friends, pays his son and him a fortune, Biden is finding a hard time taking those tariffs off so much money is coming in. And if they took it off, we'd lose our steel industry almost immediately and would lose a lot. So because of what I've done, they're having a hard time. And China would love to get those tariffs taken off that. If the real estate market begins to crumble in China, as it is already beginning to crumble. It's an Alice items this morning, the news items by John Ellis, and I just think it's a very dire situation. Will it impact the United States real estate market? Do you think? It could, and it could also make it better. But also make it better. People are going to invest in the United States. If we're smart, it'll make it better. People will want to be in the United States. We can not let China continue to rip off. You know, when I came in, they were doing $536 billion worth of deficits with China. And I turned things around and those tariffs have been a godsend and it's really, I mean, it saved our steel industry. I still you could speak to anybody in the steel industry. They'll tell you Trump saved us. We wouldn't have a steel plant open. If I didn't put 25 and 50% tariffs on all the steel coming in from China, where they were dumping it in order to destroy our cylinder industry.

"Doctor Oz, can I pause there? I told this story yesterday. I remember the fetching misses Hewitt and I remember taking the last coupon in my University of Michigan law school alone and paying it off and saying, done. And feeling satisfied. I think this is a disaster, but we got one minute left. I want to get to the border. Does the border matter to Pennsylvania? Not the northern border, but the southern border. Huge, every state say, border state because of fentanyl. Here's what's happening. When the John federman of the world, boldly state, they want an open border with sanctuary cities. What they're really doing is giving money to the cartels because the cartels Mexican cartels are running human trafficking operations. When we have an open border, they'll run hundreds of thousands of people across it, make money, take their money by fentanyl from China and bring that across with the human beings. Now we've got so much fentanyl pulling into the country. We had a 100,000 people die last year. Most of young people that's four times more than under the age of 50 from COVID. And in Pennsylvania, where top 5 in the country dental deaths, it is destroying our rural areas. We have to shut the border down. And if we do shut the border down, it opens up an opportunity to increase legal immigration, like my father was able to benefit from, bring the right people into the country, control the border. It's an obligation we have to our people. Doctor Oz, thank you for a very straightforward, long interview, longer than Stephanie roll did with federman, no edits. It was live. It was live, not live to take, not edited. Doctor Oz, I appreciate your joining me. Come back often. Pennsylvania race in the center of the country's political heart. Thank you, Doctor Oz. I'll be right back, America stay tuned. My friends in Colorado and he's got the wind at his back. Good morning, Joe. Welcome back to the Hugh Hewitt show. Thanks so much for having me on, really love really love coming on with you, Dan. You know, we cover Colorado very, very close. I've got so many friends back to Wayne allard and bill. And I just, I just want people to know that you're the real deal. What do you think of the student loan forgiveness? Well, to be honest with you, it's not forgiveness. It's a transfer. I mean, who's paying for it? Working American. That's who's going to end up paying the bill. I went to safety meeting at my company, had about 40 employees there the other morning. And was asking them how they felt about paying somebody else's tuition. I didn't know if I was going to get out of there alive here. They're really upset. This is working Americans that made the decision to not go to school and now they got to pay somebody else's tuition. It's just wrong. It's just wrong at every level. When I came over to Colorado to teach for Bill Armstrong, I had Colorado Christian university. Those kids had jobs. Those kids were working. Some of them had loans and they were paying them off even as they worked in the college. And they were at 5 and 6 year students. This is so unconstitutional as well as being so unfair. I'm sure they're going to, they're going to have a vote on it, Congress. Somebody is going to stop this. But it's just outrageous that Biden thinks he can get away with this. And it's pandering to voters. I mean, that's the most ridiculous thing. Here we are 60 days out from an election and he's given away money trying to Garner up some votes. So Michael Bennett is your opponent. The invisible senator, he kind of tried to distance himself sort of from the president's program on student loans. The president didn't even mention it in Pennsylvania on Tuesday night he's embarrassed by it. Are you going to debate Michael Ben because you're going to win that debate on the issues? He votes with Joe Biden every single time he votes. Yeah, we've reached out. We've challenged him that I think four or 5 different places that we said we'd meet in heck on medium at a bar downtown Denver. Let's get it on and talk about the issues and that's what working Americans here in Colorado want to hear. They want to talk about what we're going to do about inflation. They want to talk about what we're going to do about price of gas, price of milk, price of groceries. They want to know what's going to happen with this crime that's out of control here. And I've challenged them, but it's been crickets. Let's talk about the crime in Denver. You know, I'm on in Denver on 7 ten K in U.S.. Denver is a problem when it comes to going downtown. When I was there 5 years ago, it was even a little bit sketchy then, but now I understand it's really quite bad. Well, COVID's done a number on the business of downtown and a lot of them have left and the reason they've left is because it's not safe. And they don't want to come back until we get some things in place. We got a border that's leaking like a sieve, we got record numbers of fentanyl, human trafficking and drug cartels coming straight up by 25. And they're in our neighborhoods now. They're killing our kids. We've lost 1700 Colorado kids here in the last year to fentanyl and meth. It's unprecedented. And we've got to do something. Biden and Bennett have got it wrong. We've got to close this border down and get crime under control. Well, that's question Joe day. I loved it. The first time he came on, he said, you employed 300 Colorado families. Democrats noticed that. They tried to take out in the primary. They don't want to run against the job creator. Are you hanging on to that message? Are you telling people you created jobs, Michael Bennett is killing him? You bet. I mean, the Democrats create dependency. We've been creating opportunity for years and that's what we'll continue to do. They're coming after my company next. They've already started passing us. It's unbelievable. I've created such a team over there as CEI. And they do such great work. You know, pick on me, don't pick on my company. What is the website for the campaign job? People want to help you. You think again, it's Joe of day dot com. J O E O DEA dot com. The only thing keeping me from being the next U.S. senator of Colorado is resources. I can use all the help I can get. We're putting all that money on TV to get our message out. He is a regular Joe. He is a great candidate. I think he's going to be the next senator in the long tradition of Colorado, sending folks who will represent folks well..

"That's what I think it is. Bret baier, we will be watching. We will be taping Fox News special report tonight and your analysis both before and after the presidential address. It's a major political moment. There's no place better to watch it than Fox News with Bret baier. Thank you, Brett. Don't give strike. Meanwhile. Never give stroke to dick Howard. I think getting strokes to Brit maybe dangerous, but it's not a dangerous destruction that counter. And I really do believe there is something to the golf story. There really is something in the gulf story. I'm a terrible golfer. I have given the game up, I wasn't, well, I was terrible in high school, but I hung around in the 15 handicap area. I hung around and occasionally, I have a clipping, my kids did not believe that I shot a 39 in high school golf match. They were adamantly opposed to the belief that I had done that. So I had to call my friend Philip. In Florida, text him, and my son does not believe I shot a 39, and he replied, tell your son. That it isn't a phenomenon that occurred, and I was there. It's like a UFO. He saw, he lined up every putt, actually. Philip is one of my closest friends and a wonderful lawyer. And he was my high school golf match. You have two golfers and two golfers from one high school and another. And I can't see anything. I still can't see anything. So fairway, that's his nickname that tells you about her. That's his nickname. I have one friend whose nickname is wedge. And another friend whose nickname is rupe for a center Fielder for the Indians, and a third friend whose nickname is fairway. Who do you want to be? Do you want to be wedge? That's the Adam flapping. Do you want to be wedge? Do you want to be rupe? Or do you want to be fairway? You want to be fairway. So I told fairway. Confirm or deny and he confirmed that I had a 39. And I have the Warren tribune chronicle report on it because I called it in. I wanted that in print because no one was ever going to believe me on that. And then after I resolved when I moved back east, I was going to get the game back 6 months later after a lesson that I said, forget this. Life is just too doggone short. I am not playing golf anymore. There are too many bandits, too much robbery occurs on golf courses in America. I wish the FBI would investigate Hauser for his golf stuff rather than, well, never mind. I'll be right back, America. I'm Hugh Hewitt, stay tuned.

"That. Last question, senator Ernst, 9.1% inflation. It's a lot of people. I think it's higher for farmers, and I write about that because fertilizer has gone through the roof. Yeah, absolutely. The inflation rate, if you look towards Middle America, it does hurt our farmers more. It hurts those that live towards the middle of the country much more. The inputs that farmers are using. You mentioned the fertilizer costs. You can also take a look at the diesel costs that takes for all the farmers to get into the fields. Those inputs have gone skyrocketing this year. And it will continue to impact and upcoming years. They're paying much, much more. I've had so many folks say, oh, commodity prices are high. And I have to turn around and say, yeah, but the inputs are so much more. Many of our farmers will be lucky to break even this year, especially our smaller farmers because they just don't have the scale of some of the larger farmers. Yeah, Bret baier did a piece last night on the food crisis and I'll tell you it's the most fiscal year responsible Congress in American history and they're spending money in the most ridiculous ways and they're not defending the country, but Joni Ernst are doing your job for everyone out there. Thank you so much for joining me. Keep coming back. You betcha. God bless you. Thank you. Welcome back, America. I'm Hugh Hewitt. There are two kinds of Americans. Those who were adults during the Carter inflation and everybody else. Michael scherer is a youngster with The New York Times, and he did it. He was a kid who can not remember the Carter inflation I doubt. But I was a young entered the workforce. Michael, do any of your colleagues talk to you about what it was like in the late 70s? Well, you'd be you'd be surprised Hugh and thanks for having me on. I mean, I was young then. I do remember it. I actually remember being in the gas lines with my parents as they were filling up on the a days or the B days because you could only fill up your gas in certain days. And I do think that the youngsters don't remember it, but many of the people at the paper do remember, and we're part of, if not covering it at least living through it. 9.1%, of course, had been around since 1981. I said I'm Brett parallel last night. When I got out of college in 78, it was 7.3. It went up the next year to 11.5, and then it went up finally to 13.5. I'm forgetting the exact number. Just went up from 78 to 79 to 80. And rent food, gas, everything went up. And it was a nightmare. And then Volcker and Reagan broke its back. Do you think and by the way, it was a disaster for Carter and it was a disaster for Reagan in his first term because he got blamed for it too. Are the Biden people preparing for electoral disaster? I mean, Rick Scott was on his money talking about 7 pickups. You know, look, even before inflation was at 9%, 6 months ago, 8 months ago. I think if you talk to the Biden administration folks privately, they already had understood that this midterm election was going to be a difficult one for them. There are voices I talked to somebody a senior over at the Democratic National Committee a few days ago who was insisting that it was going to be better than people expected for Democrats. But I think the majority of the folks already knew months ago that it was going to be problematic. And of course, I think anybody who's being realistic understands that you add inflation, like we're seeing now record inflation on top of all of the other issues and problems that President Biden has and the Democratic Party has. I think there are very few people inside that building that think that the thing that this is going to be great for them. I think there are some that think they might be able to stave off disaster kind of here and there in various races because at the end of the day races are also decided by the people who are running in them and there may be some opportunities there for Democrats. But sure, if Missouri nominates Eric greitens, the Republicans throw away a seat. If they nominate Eric rights are given, they're going to nominate Eric Schmidt. Meanwhile, what Rick Scott, you know, the people is pulling I trust are the NRSC and I follow the money of the NRC and the DNC. And if the NRC is spending as they are money in Connecticut,.

"Hugh Hewitt show. Hey, great to be with you. First, let's talk about what the president said last night. I welcome that. No IRGC coming off of the list. I welcome his commitment to use force if necessary to stop Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. Second question. Do you believe him? Well, me and that's yet to be seen. This president, of course, went into this Middle East trip. From a position of weakness. And it's foreign policy, doctor and his literally been one of appeasement. So we do know that Iran is the threat in the Middle East. And this administration has now finally admitted it, but how many times have we seen the president's administration walk back what the president has said? So he should be using this trip as an opportunity to really dig in, show a little bit of leadership, really advance our Abraham accords. And of course, as he did say, pushback on Iranian aggression. Now, you have authored the defend act. Tell people what it is and why we hope it gets bipartisan support and moves to the house quickly. Yeah, so this is a bicameral bipartisan act to bring all of those countries of the Abraham accords together. And a few additional friends and partners in the Middle East and it works on a collaborative effort to tie together military defense systems. So I think it's a good thing that defend act, it supported by many of those countries in the Abraham accords. And again, it's bipartisan, bicameral, and I'm hoping that the president will pick up on this act and really get behind it, show these countries that we want to work together and make sure they stay strong against Iran. That would require the Biden administration to change its policy for the first 18 months, which has been to defend the department to fund the Department of Defense. And the United States. I only promote myself once an hour, senator, but last night I was on with Bill hemmer sitting in for Brett Stevens, and I brought up the inflation number and the recently passed defense authorization act. I want to play that clip for you and then get your comments on the pay raise. Okay, let's play cut number. I think it's you kick it off. What are we and what is this president in for in the months and potentially years to come? Well, anyone who's under the age of 62, which includes everybody, but me on this panel, Bill. Do not remember what this is like. When I got out of college in 1978, inflation was 7.6%, 1979. It went to 11.3 and in 1980 it went to 13.5. If you're young and just going into the workforce or you're old and on a fixed income inflation, destroys your ability to make a living. And what it also does is destroy a president at a party in the Democrats are going to get wiped out. It takes a Reagan. It takes Republican Congress to cut spending, cut taxes and the states and the federal level because right now people are going through something they've never gone through before. Folks on social security got a 5.6% Cola. That's already gone. And the military pay raise and the budget this year, 4.6%. We already heard 9.1% year over year. It's a disaster for the country. So, Joni Ernst, 4.6%. I mean, they've already, we're going to cut every service member's pay. Yeah, that is what we're looking at. And everybody would say, wow, you know, 4.6%. Wow, that's a huge increase in their pay. But we know with a 9.1% inflation rate, their pay is not keeping up with the cost of the goods that they have to purchase for their families every day living. The gas at the pump, this is crazy. And yet the Democrats and the Biden administration are talking about pushing another reckless tax and spend Bill, which would not only increase taxes on nearly every tax bracket out there. But it continues to fan the flames of inflation. I don't know what they're thinking. I think they're hoping that if we hand out a bunch more free money to folks across the United States that maybe they would support them in the election. But you know what, Americans aren't that stupid. They see that we can't continue to spend like this, especially on stuff. We don't need. Let's focus on why our federal government was created. That's the defense of our nation, primarily. And that means making sure that our service members are able to get.

"From. When we come back from break, we're going to talk about president Clinton. I want to get a few stories. And then I want the big takeaways for young sure. And boy, there are a lot of big takeaways in hearts touched with fire. I'm going to have Dave gergen tell a couple of stories. My favorite stories in a book full of them and my favorite bits of it. I have one disagreement with them and I'll talk about that too because it's talk right here. We got to do that. But David gergen, ubiquitous in your life, whether you knew it or not, for the last many years, as long as David keeps working so am I. So don't go anywhere, America. I'll be right back with David gergen Hart's touch with fire available at Amazon. We'll be right back after the break on the Hugh Hewitt show. Welcome back, America. I'm Hugh Hewitt talking with David gergen, the author of this brand new book hearts touched with fire, how great leaders are made. David had the unusual distinction of crossing over to serve in two white houses separated by party. He joined the Clinton White House. There he worked with my closest friend in the world, Mark guerin is now the director of the Kennedy institute of politics, so he must run into Mark a lot up in Boston. But David, when Bill Clinton asked you to go to work for him, were you surprised? And what did you do for the democratic president for whom you thought? Yes, well first of all, let me just say, you and I share a lot of good friends and mark urine is one of them. He first suit too. So when I was out in the private sector, when Bill Clinton was elected and I was at that point, I was running U.S. news and World Report. It was my first foray into the formal journalism and I lasted for a couple of years. And it worked out well, but anyway, I wrote editorials for the magazine and I got a call one day from Mack mccarty who was the chief who was very close to Clinton. It was his first chief of staff. And I think the good one. And he said, will you come over and have lunch with me? And I said, sure. The White House mask. You've got to come on. You bet. Yeah. So we had lunch. And he said, well, you know, we've been thinking we've been reading your editorials about what we ought to do. But here, and we think maybe you ought to come here and work on our staff. And tell us what to do. And so I was a little bit taken aback by that because I had worked for three Republican presidents and probably so I wasn't as conservative as you know as president had worked for, but I worked with him with great respect, especially Ronald Reagan. But I also had a lot of high regard for much of what Richard Nixon stood for as well as Gerald Ford. So anyway, this is a surprise to me, but while we were sitting there and the basement there was where they had the little restaurant, the president himself shows up. To talk to me and I knew it fixes in here. And so the two of them leaned on me to come and work for Bill Clinton. And I said, you know, it was in a very awkward situation because their partnership was still was pretty high by then. But I had known Bill Clinton a long time. We had become friends and I sort of had an old fashioned view that if the president of the United States calls you and said, I need help. Can you come help me fix 6 what's going on here? You do it. The answer is yes. And then the answer is also when do I start? Yeah. And I totally missed president. I can do this up to a year. I don't want to be involved in campaign scans Republicans. That's just it would be too awkward. And so we agreed to that. I want to settle in this counselor too. The president, when I got there, you know, the reason he asked me to come was he was looking for someone to help the identity. He was floundering. I knew a Bill Clinton, who was very self confident, good, great governor of Arkansas and to Bill Clinton and I found in The White House was just fondant. Things weren't going well. He was bouncing around. And he was looking for help. And so what I learned from the Reagan years was when people used to say let Reagan be Reagan. You always played over the president's best instincts his best qualities. And that will help him more than anything else. And so I had this Clinton approach. And the deal was that I pushed very hard. Don't listen, don't try to change who this guy is. Don't make him somebody he's not. Let the good Bill Clinton come out and bring back to the fore. You know, Clinton should the best of Clinton. So we created his own confidence random self confidence. He'd lost his self confidence. He was struggling. And Hillary was struggling. She transitioned to Washington very, very difficult. You know, they lost friends foster. There were a whole lot of things going on that were negative. And so any event each time he was the president did something, Bill Clinton did something. He turned to me afterwards. It had that go. What do you think? What should I do to change? And gradually, he gradually he got his self confidence back. And what I learned is with leaders, try to try to help them find their refund themselves. Don't try to turn them into something that they're not because the lack of authenticity will really come back to haunt them later on. But that leads me to two of the story. There are many stories and hearts touched with fire and I want to use my two favorite with Bill Clinton and Morocco and with HW and Kenny bunk port. Do it in the order that you want because they illustrate magnificent.

"Ahead of here on the Hugh Hewitt show. 55 minutes after the hour America chew Hewitt I want to thank David Mamet for spending these two hours with me and for the secret knowledge and for the kind words you gave me in the secret knowledge. You listen to a lot of talk right now, David Matt, how would you make it better? I would make it better and the three guys I mentioned specifically in the book is you and Michael medved and Dennis and Glenn Beck, the forecast. I would take out the interlocutor. You guys don't have them, but a lot of the other guys do. The second banana cart to laugh at your jokes and so forth? Well, that's all. I don't think actually medved or prager or Beck has a lot of people. Dwayne doesn't really do much of that on this program, but in terms of the kind of conversations that are going on right now, I think that you can only find sustained conversation on talk radio anymore. I don't think you fight it anywhere else. I think that that's true. I think you guys are doing a great job. I know you are. I mean, you got me listening and thinking. That always amazed me. Let me close by talking about marriage. You know, recently a judge ruled that there is no rational basis for society to prefer marriage between one man and one woman over that of two men and two women. That's actually no rational basis. You provide a complete response to that, not directly by talking about what marriage accomplishes. Just give a summary for the audience about how the culture has got to take care of marriage. Well, yeah, I mean, the kid learns in the family. The kid learns the way that the kids learn by watching the way two adults respond to each other. How two adults under stress are going to deal with each other, how they're going to deal with the outside community, how they're going to deal with questions of religion and finance. The kids are always watching. And that's their indoctrination into the world. The state always wants to destroy the family. And that was the great triumph of the Hitler youth when they got the, they thought the Hitler youth kids to inform other parents. And there was a famous boy in the communist Russia forgotten the same they built a statue to him who informed on his parents for being insufficiently stalinist and they would take him out and shot. So the family is the basic unit of the country, which is why the Torah is about a family. We start with the family and the family gross wider in the family eventually becomes a group in a state and a planet a nation. But it starts with the family because everything starts with the family. And we got to keep the state out of the family. And when confusion arises, you write the results angry feminist lonely aging males full divorce, courts broken families grieving children. But I close by asking you, like I did earlier, you'd think that marriage can be turned around in the United States? Well, marriage could be good or bad. Marriage can be good about it has to be committed. Because it's going to be really good unless it's committed and you ain't going to find out if it's really bad unless you're committed. We had a history of people who might generation specifically screwing around and living with each other, blah, blah, blah. And we told each other that that trains us for marriage, but basically trains you for divorce. It does. David Mamet, congratulations to sacred knowledge is a wonderful book. It's like the new hero at that time, America. No corny, I'll be right back. It continued. That concludes today's episode of the interview with you Hewitt. Thank you for listening.

Well, I'm not at this point, an orthodox Jew, although my observance has greatly greatly increased, but they have a marvelous rabbi and he teaches about them teach about the politics, but he teaches about teachers about Judaism and ethical behavior. How much time do you spend studying Torah and talmud? Well, the time I haven't got into yet because I got to get the Aramaic for the tollman. But the tour will be the tour fairly regularly.

A Christian minister said he said it's not that we believe in the Bible because it happened was because it happens. Very well put. It's also it's a myth maybe, but it's intended to be believed. I will be back with David Mamet, playwright extraordinaire, director, and author of a brand new book the secret knowledge, which when you work through it, you will be rewarded with a surprise at the end, which I'll tell you about in the next hour stay tuned it's for you do it show. Morning, glory anything great, America, it's Hugh Hewitt, special two hours with a huge Hewitt show with David Mamet last hour talking more biography this hour, the craft and the politics in the book, the secret knowledge which mammoth is just issued David Mamet. I am not familiar with how movies are made. I just consume them. And so the appreciation I took away from the book, your new book about what a director does. Indulge me, I want to read this for the audience, so they understand because I think it explains a lot about your conversion to conservatism. This is from page two 18 to two 19 to 19 and two 20. On the movie set there is one person in one person only who need possess no quantifiable skills that is the director. The actor must be able to act the designer to design the Carpenter to build the director needs to be conversant with the technicalities of none of these. His job is to move the project forward, allowing each of the workers involved to do his own job. That of the director is to listen to their suggestions or propose a course of action and to bring the entirety happily and simply to a shared devotion to the course. The rules of behavior on a movie set are largely the unwritten law capital U capital L, who shows deference to whom, when one should speak, when one should be silent how to deal with unpleasantness with an excess of zeal with shoddy work, how to evaluate that which falls short of perfect. The citizen fuse with a sense of commonality and dedication not only to the project at hand, but to training by example the new workers by extending and protecting the precious lessons of the past at another place you write about the fact that fantasy won't help when you've got to get filming done by Sunday. It's a very practical job and it seems to me that you're explaining that the directors in life the workers in life can't afford the fantasies that the role players in the actors and the left can. Yeah, I'm also saying this is kind of my model for president. Yep, there's one need a president who knows how to do everything. Well, nobody knows how to do everything. What we need is a president who knows how to do one thing, which is to recognize that it's his or her responsibility to move according to the loss of the oath that they've taken to move the commonality towards shared goals. And on time and on an efficiently into a success, you also write more importantly a director and you speak as one is directed ten features and quite a bit of television quote is exposed to something of which the actors and writers may not have taken notice the genius of America and the American system of free enterprise. And you expand all these hundreds of people wildly different backgrounds coming together in an unplanned and basically unregulated exercise by the government to produce not just art, hopefully much of it is art. Most of it isn't, but some of it is, but also profit and jobs and employment. It's a profoundly conservative business. Oh, yeah. Yeah, absolutely. In this execution, of course it is. Then why aren't more directors conservative? I think more directors are conservative than actors. And it may be that a lot of people keep their political ideas to themselves. Not because that would cause them trouble because it might cause them trouble. That's their choice. Do you think the secret knowledge will limit your ability to make the movies and stage the plays you want to do? I don't think so. I don't think so. It may, but. It's moved anyway. You know, who's to say why someone didn't want to do your play or didn't want to.

"15 years. This is just you didn't wake up in 2008 and say I'm a conservative. No, you know, you were, but you know I've always, I've always, I've always been, I think, a little bit of a contrarian because they never did well in school and I kind of didn't go to school. So I had to figure things out for myself. And I read a wonderful book the other day by a guy called Carl languish, and it was written, I believe, 1944. And he was a flight instructor for a United States Army air force. And he wrote a book and he said, you know, everything these kids are being taught is wrong. This is not how a wing works. This is not how a plane works. This is not the way they should be taught. Let's start from zero. And so he did and it's the book that all beginning pilots are first given. It's kind of brilliant because he said, I'm going to shed the theory and I'm going to tell you what I understand. And the PS I'm betting my life on it. Like R 100 versus R one O one. I did not know that actor to I read it in the secret knowledge and it's very impactful on tell people about building a dirigible. Yeah, there was a spell called Neville shoot who wrote a bunch of wonderful wonderful books, no highway in the sky and trustee from the tour room and said, a lot of them were made into a huge movies. But he was actually an aircraft designer by day and a very successful one. And one of his early jobs as he worked as a structural engineer for De Havilland, who was a British company that was building a dirigible Richard airship for cross oceanic travel. But the ministry of aviation said, well, we're going to hedge our bets. We're going to give the contract up to two people. We'll give them up and De Havilland and we'll also give it up to the government. Off you go. So the two groups go to work and they check back and forth with each other and they have a engineers kept saying, wait a second. The government ship is a lot has a lot more redundancies than ours, and it's heavier than ours. Maybe we're doing things wrong over here in the commercial side. And they kept rechecking their figures and they said, no, no, we're right. They're wrong. And then they started telling the government side, you know, you guys are making that ship on air worthy. And the governments that don't poo poo. So chips took off and shoots ship made a successful crossing east to west of the Atlantic. And the other ship went a west to east and crashed in 300 miles, killing everybody on board. And that is all the story you need to know about the government. I'll be back with David Mamet. Stay tuned. 55 minutes after the hour Americans Hugh Hewitt, my guess, this hour and next, David Mamet, his brand new book, the secret knowledge in bookstores everywhere I've linked it at Hugh Hewitt dot com. It's a wonderful, but it's a challenging read more on that next hour. David Mamet, I want to play for you a little clip from an interview you did with Charlie rose in 2007. Again, my friend at Biebs sent this to me. He seems a little bit startled when this happens. Let's listen to the exchange. People in Israel don't want war. They want peace. It's the Palestinians who have a marvelous PR campaign. What do you think of Jimmy Carter? Must we? Yes. I see the champion of murder. He's a champion of terrorism. It's unfortunate, but I wish I could I wish I could find some other way to interpret that Jimmy Carter is what he is. I feel like a fool for voting for him and it makes me heartsick that a president of the United States would adopt a stance throughout the book that I understand, unfortunately, as antisemitism. Call me crazy. You're not crazy, David Mamet, and your whole the emphasis on the book on the State of Israel and this issue of the Arabs versus the Israelis and the Palestinian demands on them. It is the moment of great clarity. I'm going to Israel for the first time this summer, and I don't know how anyone can not agree with your analysis of this, but I'm sure you'll be savaged on the left for those parts if nothing else in the secret knowledge. Well, you know, did you read my part about the two planes leaving the airport? Oh yeah, Syria and Israel, which one are you going to get on if you have to choose? You bet. Yeah, so anyone however on the left one is, if World War three is broken out, you have to choose and you spend the rest of your life either in Syria or Israel, everybody on the left on the west, you and Christian alike is going to be pleading to get on the plane to Israel. And even Noam Chomsky that another champion of murder is going to be a his status as a Jew and his status as an American thing. I deserve a place on the plane because if he gets on a plane to Syria, the great people he's been defending are going to kill him. It's a beautiful, it's a wonderful.

"For two years. More on that when we come back for a break, David Mamet is my guess. His wonderful new book is the secret knowledge on the dismantling of American culture it's linked to you at dot com, don't go anywhere you listen to give you a show. What are you prepared to do? Everything within the law and then what are you prepared to do? If you open the bone on these people mister, you must be prepared to go all the way. Because they won't give up the fight until one of you is dead. Here's how you get them. He pulls a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you say I'm one of his to the morgue. My guess is David Mamet on the Hugh Hewitt show his brand new book, the secret knowledge that, of course, a clip from the untouchables which David Mamet wrote the screenplay for. You were talking at the break about your teachers at Francis Perkins school and their background. Did any of them have any dramatic impact on how you write David Mamet? Did you learn to write from those teachers? No, I didn't, but there were the first people in my life whoever told me I was smart because I spent the life in the public schools before that and they kept flunking me and putting me in remedial classes. I think they thought I had a learning defect because I was just bored to death. I just couldn't force myself to open the books. So I got to the Francis Parker school and these genius teachers changed my life by saying, you know what you're very, very smart. It's actually no big deal to get an a on this test. One guy said to me you said a hole in French grammar is just like a hole in your shoe. Just go fix it. We had a wonderful teacher called the bar mccutcheon. He still may be there. And he used to teach calculus the fourth graders because he just didn't tell him it was calculus. Did that continue at Goddard? You went to college in Vermont, and you went, I assume, in the late 50s, early 60s, was it a revolutionary effort? You've got quite a lot of hard words for the Tom Hayden's and the other radicals of the 60s. But what was your college life like? Well, because there wasn't a college there. I mean, it had this wonderful brochure about learning in the Soviet idyllic environment and being free to choose your own classes. But when one got there, there was nothing there. There weren't any classes. There weren't any books. And then people don't believe me. They didn't come exaggerating, but I'm not. And so we students were left to our own devices and some of us gravitated into the theater for and just stayed there for years or so I did putting on plays. And some of us joined the SDS and the weathermen and ended up blowing up those buildings in New York City and going underground for 30 years. And the Goddard was kind of a locus on the underground railway of looking back of the weatherman and the SDS and the more radical elements of the 60s and href grounds book there in cilk we Carmichael spoke there and everybody spoke.

"Can we take the ad hominem out of in the book in the middle? You write that a play is basically an exercise in raising lowering and altering of expectations. So are interviews. And so I kind of want to start by raising the expectation of the audiences to how clear you are in this by talking about Sarah Palin. On page one 37, you write, part of the left's savage animus against Sarah Palin is attributable to her status not as a woman, neither is a conservative, but as a worker with a capital W that is, I think, a 100% correct. Would you explain that to people? Yeah, the left of today is not the left of my Father's Day when it was made up of workers and factory workers and housewives and veterans of World War II and people who fix the lawnmower and the Republicans were the guys in the plaid pants that didn't let the Jews in. The left of today is. Very much the cheese and white wine guys sitting around and talking about the greed how greedy the world is and how the dumb Americans have ruined the beautiful, beautiful world. It's kind of malthusian. It's saying, don't those people realize there are just too many folks on the highway in the national forest and they're getting in my way. Now do you have to tell me the question? Sarah Palin. How Sarah Palin fits into that. Oh, sure. So Sarah Palin is a threat for several reasons. One is she's a woman. And as I wrote a article misogyny, the left, if you look at it, really doesn't like women, of how do I know, well, let's look at just a Monica Lewinsky and broadbent and Mary Joker packing and all of these people who were various ways vastly abused and once placed killed by a liberal men on the left said nothing about it. They never mentioned it. Because they weren't because as much as their quote feminists, it was more important to be a member of is attacked as a woman as a tactic and attractive woman. And attack because she's an action worker. And because her story is part of the American myth. She was a commercial fisherman and like Harry Truman actually knew of which he speaks when she talks about hard work. Sure. And also it's part of it's part of our myth of Hollywood. Mister Smith goes to Washington, the farmer's daughter, the candidate of bow worth, the contender, with the myth has played out over and over and over again days, but the normal person who says, well, heck, I can do that. And then the fact can do it in rises to the highest office of the land. But so when the left seats that in real life if someone was not on their side, but on the other side, someone who has not been indoctrinated, someone who's expresses herself well in a sense unusual and attractive and funny. It scares the hell out of them. So they say, oh, yo, she's stupid. I say, I don't get the joke. I don't see what she's stupid about. She seems to have succeeded wildly at everything that she ever did. She's just the governor of Alaska. Well, I'm not the governor Alaska. You aren't. I doubt that either of us could be starting from zero, as well as a small state. It just has a few people, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera, that the left knows not why it hates Sarah Palin, but there's still talking about her. Even before it became clear, that she's probably going to run for president. When there was still pitching about George Bush, there's still fetching about Sarah Palin. They got scared so bad that they can't stop complaining about her. How do you assess the character in the intelligence of George W. Bush, David Mamet? I have no idea. I really don't have looking back. I think you did a pretty damn good job. I think he certainly inherited he inherited that the first attack on American soil since Pearl Harbor and the kept the country he and his people kept the country safe. He's tried to do away with the travesty of social security, which was a very, very brave move on his part. Because he must have known it was bam near doomed to be a loser, but he threw himself into it. And he served his country. God bless him. My guess is David Mamet, playwright, director, screenwriter. He is here for this hour and next his brand new book is the secret knowledge on the dismantling of American culture. It's in bookstores everywhere. I have listed it over at Hugh Hewitt dot com as well. Don't go anywhere because we're going to cover not only the secret knowledge, but also the work and expectations of David Mamet looking forward. Special two hours on the yuhi we shall stay tuned. 21 minutes after the army too here at I am joined by David Mamet, who is going to be my guest this hour.

"Right now. So let me ask you the question that I asked zen candidate future president Trump in the debate. You still mad at me for is if you had to pick one side of the triad to over invest in. And favor, given what you know right now, which side of the triad would you favor, bob work? Well, the most survivable leg of the triad. Is the underwater ballistic missile submarine force. These are big submarines that carry 24 intercontinental range ballistic missiles armed with nuclear warheads. That go to sea for 90 days and become invisible. No one knows where they are. No one can find them. No one can track them. So in terms of what is called a second strike force, if the Russians say, for example, conducted a first strike on the United States, we would always have a survivable leg that would threaten them with nuclear retaliation, which is the essence of nuclear deterrence. So right now, the number one, I mean, the Department of Defense says this, the number one priority in the Department of Defense is the Columbia class ballistic missile submarine. That's what I thought. Until my question is, and this is a political question if you want to punt punt. We spent $7 trillion in the last two years on one time expenditures to get us through. And none of that went to submarine maintenance. None of them went to building the Columbia class. None of it went to the shipyard repair that we need. Did we miss a chance there secretary work to really fund up the Columbia class and our submarine force? Well, the Columbia class is fully funded in the budget. I think what you might be referring to is all of the schedule margins is gone. We are starting to build the submarine over and over and over. We are now in the process of building the first boat. So there's no margin. We can't, we can't delay it anymore. But it is fully funded you without question. Now would we be able to build it for the cost that we would like to see? We don't want to lose cost control, it's already just an enormous enormous pull on resources inside the navy and inside the department. I am more sympathetic to your view that we did not spend enough money on shipbuilding infrastructure and submarine infrastructure in particular. We could have done a lot better job. Hopefully, we will do that going forward. Secretary work, I hope you'll keep coming back. You're very good at this. I don't know how often you do talking to the civilians, but I wish I did a lot more of it. You're very good at it. And for a University of Illinois guy, like Mel, I'm really impressed because we didn't talk football. So you're really, you're not at the disadvantage that I put Mel at whenever I have him on. Thank you so much, mister secretary. Keep coming back. Thank all of you for listening. That was, that was edifying. I will be back tomorrow, America, same time, same place on the next. Hugh Hewitt show. That concludes today's episode of the interview with you Hewitt. Thank you for listening. Make sure you come back and check out all the other podcasts on the Salem podcast network.

"Weapons. A minute to our break secretary. Are we way behind in the hypersonic race? Are we way behind her just behind? Well, we're way behind the numbers you, the Chinese have many more hypersonic missiles than we do. They have testing infrastructure that just dwarfs our own, so they have a lead in production capacity and numbers in service right now. But they don't have a lead in the technology, at least I don't think we do. We have two different kind of approaches we're going after. One or called glide vehicles, which literally skip along the atmosphere and then we have another one that isn't air breather, like a cruise missile to go fast. We have a program for each of those. And we're just gearing up. So I think technologically we are right with the Chinese and the Russians, but without question the Chinese have a lead on in numbers. When I come back from break with secretary bob work, we're going to talk about what this means for the United States defense budget, whether or not we are producing enough ships enough frigates with missiles enough tubes to launch missiles from. I see Australia announced today that they are bringing Raytheon and Lockheed to Australia to produce their own missiles given the future of warfare. We've got one of the experts in secretary bob work with us. Don't go anywhere in America. Stay tuned. I know everyone driving The Pentagon pulled over. They don't want to go into it. They don't want to go into the building. They want to listen to bob work. Don't go anywhere. I'm Hugh Hewitt, stay tuned. Welcome back, America. I'm Hugh Hewitt, my guess is secretary bob work, former deputy Secretary of Defense, former undersecretary of the navy colonel in the Marine Corps and smart guy. And secretary, I got to get two questions answered from you. One because I have a family member in line for command of a carrier down the road. He tells me carriers are never going to be obsolete. They can be defended. Number two, I got a friend in the business whose daughter is a junior at Annapolis. She early selected submarines to which I responded, that's good. She'll never be out of work. What about carriers in submarines in the mix? Mister secretary, what is that mix looking not a hundred years ahead? But 30. Well, as you know, the navy and Congress are locked in a debate over this right now. The navy's position is they need a ready capable and lethal force more than they need a bigger force that is less ready less lethal and less capable. Admiral gilday, the chief of naval operations, the number one uniformed naval officer this week said, hey, we don't want to become like the Russian navy, a big navy that isn't ready and isn't capable. Here specific questions, I think everyone agrees right now that undersea warfare is a big, big advantage for the United States. We are much, much, much better than the Chinese submarine service. So going into the submarine service, they are never ever not going to be busy. Gee advantages. You're right. The aircraft carrier, there is a heated debate over the aircraft carriers becoming so vulnerable that we should reconsider the number we have. And no one in the U.S. may be that says we should go to zero when aircraft carriers. But there are some people in the navy who say, hey, we could go to 9 aircraft carriers, for example, are making a number up right now because I don't know what exactly have debate is. And we could take the opportunity cost right now the law says you're going to have 12 carriers. And so there are some of the navy that says, look, if we went to 9 carriers, we could take all the money that we would save. And by many, many, many more. Missiles, many, many, many more unmanned vessels, many more submarines. And that would wind up with a more capable buddy and lethal mate. So that's the debate that's going on.

"Your high Canada. Hugh Hewitt's here say a prayer for the Americans abandoned in Afghanistan. One of the person I know working to get them home, Senator Bill Haggerty. Of Tennessee. Good morning, Senator Haggerty, welcome back to the human show. Good morning. He was as always, It's great to be on with you. Thanks. What is your best understanding of the number of Americans, both citizens and NPR's legal permanent resident, and I don't draw a distinction between those who are in Afghanistan still and want to get out. It's hard to know I've seen numbers north of a couple of 100. I've seen reports up in the northern part of Afghanistan of over 1000 people waiting to leave, including Americans, but without specificity. It's hard to know. And now that we don't have any presence on the ground is going to be exceedingly difficult to track this down. Does anyone at the State Department answer your phone calls? When you call requesting assistance for a green card holder, for example, from Nashville or Memphis or anyone like that? Yes, they are. And my team has been working through every weekend since this debacle began, um, reaching out at the State Department pressing issues for for our constituents here, but frankly, people around the nation So they have been working, hard, responsive. I think it's just a you know, incredibly challenging situation right now because the State Department are on their heels, given the position that they've been placed in the president is reported by the Wall Street Journal today to urgently want to change the subject. So we're getting the same talking point. We think it's about 100 or so many of them are Afghans. Dual citizens. Some have relatives there. They don't talk about l P r s at all. And they certainly don't want to talk about the S. I V s. Do you believe the White House is quite consciously attempting to get Americans to forget Americans? They've been spending this from the very beginning. You you know, the response has been to spend deflect to blame others. You know, Joe Biden says on one side of his mouth. The buck stops here, then immediately begins to try to blame others, you know? I just got back from a trip to the UK into to our NATO allies, and I think they see this as well. They feel like they were sold A bill of goods in the 2020 election. Joe Joe Biden's Whole America's back theme. They realized that was complete folly right now. What Joe Biden has done has demonstrated time and again that their foreign policy at the Biden administration has really dictated by press releases and vengeance against the previous administration. That seems to be the primary motivation. You know, it's not the stable hand that Joe Biden portrayed. It's not the 40 years of experience that Joe Biden portrayed. This is a press release driven domestic policy driven organization here in occupying the White House right now, and they have left ourselves. And our allies in a terrible position. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been answering questions in Parliament because of PM question time. There is no ability to avoid an issue he has acknowledged. 311 s. I V s their equivalent of S. I've translators who helped the British forces in the in Afghanistan. That's a hard number. They know exactly. We don't get any hard numbers from state defense. Ryan claim to the president is that conscious on their part, I've got to believe so. And I've reached out with my colleagues to get hard numbers on on another item that I know concerns you as much as much as it does meet you. And that is the the inventory of equipment that we left behind some of the world's highest grade military. Equipment is left in Afghanistan. Whether it was, you know, dropped by the Afghan army are left behind by us military. We've got billions of dollars of equipment over there. I've reached a secretary Austin I still have not heard back from him. To get a complete inventory of what was sent there. What's been removed? What's been disabled. What remains there? Um you know, our friends in the UK Our our allies in NATO are now deeply concerned because of their proximity to the problem. They're much closer to it, and now they realized very clearly. That the Taliban and their allies Al Qaeda, Isis K. It continues as jihadist flood into Afghanistan are arming themselves as some of the best equipment known demand. And what they don't use themselves may become available and what could become the largest arms bazaar in the world. You think about our photos from around the globe that can now move into Afghanistan and get the latest U. S military equipment, reverse engineer and modified to use against us? I mean, this is a terrible situation. Elite media has been accused by me and others are being complicit with the White House attempt to turn the page your opinion senator on whether or not America's premier institutions of media are pushing hard enough on the questions about how many Where are they? What are you doing? Well, this media has been extraordinarily forgiving for everyone of the policy debacles at the Biden administration has kicked off If you think about it from the very beginning the Keystone XL pipeline again destroying our energy independence.
