Brian Birdwell: The Agonizing Burns of 9/11

"And so I collapsed in front of Roy the four of them give grasp a grab an armor a limb to give that exertion to pick me up because this is not a place to wait for medical care to get to me The fire is still burning and spreading smoke is filling up that hallway And when they grab me you know they give that first exertion to pick me up and I don't come with them They end up carrying chunks off of me and I begin screaming at them to leave me alone And I know in my heart I'm telling them to leave me there to die Because when you're that badly burned just being touched is agonizing but they're kind of like that paraffin treatment when you put your hand in the hot wax and then when you pull it out and it solidifies within it just peels right off That's what happens with burn flesh because the moisture in your body has been evaporated out and now there's nothing that moisture is what actually holds us together and that moisture is gone And so now just chunks come off and eventually the move me chuck rolls me over on the left hand side forcibly puts his arms underneath my left side of my torso taking chunks of the back off but eventually the four of them are shaking hands with each other that instead of grasping me they're gripping each other's arms with my body weight resting on their connected arms They eventually carry me through the beam ring door into an a ring access where I would receive my first medical care in the a ring from an air force doctor and John Baxter colonel John Baxter John would have the go bag that had a morphine morphine syringes IVs and things of that nature So he was headed to the medical clinic to be a part of the triage but basically 5 or 6 of us have been set here and what's the hasty triage location He stops Puts the takes my shoes off so that he can find a good place with clean skin and a vein So he puts the morphine in the right foot the IV in the left Natalie ogletree a wonderful lady from the navy

"Smoker or the smell of smoke or anything else that would bet triggers. You personally back to that day. Is there any kind of symptoms for for you. Sure you know Having done this for so long. I retired in two thousand four came here. In nineteen ninety-five retired in two thousand four was moving off to the civilian sector but somebody stepped in and created a job. And ask if i could stay in. Keep doing this. Which i have done. there's no greater patient population in the world and i still look forward to every day But yes walking through the halls of the pentagon you know. Sometimes i'll see something in thing. Yeah i remember this on nine eleven. And i would say this The folks reconstructed the pentagon did a superb job in particular. You recall that We moved rapidly to get a contract. Fix the pentagon where this tragedy had occurred and Those contractors worked day and night and they finished ahead of schedule did a super job. Great patriots Other than that. They have the pentagon now is like a museum with Paintings pictures Great great here to visit. Yeah so this was your final duty station right You got out and two thousand four. Yes i actually never made it out the door but You know so. This operation still exists. We're still doing that. Core of things that i described We have many more patients these days. We still work closely with the dealer. Lorenzo clinic and We actually have a couple more clinics at andrews report up to us here and so we try to stay ahead of these things We try to train Regularly we try to anticipate the worst case scenarios that could occur. We try to keep abreast of the news if we see something. That's a little unusual in the news and we start checking the news little more often because We saw what happened on nine eleven and and we live in a dangerous world and it's our job to be part of the solution. If something really bad happens. God you so you walked out. As the as the commander couple months later became the director Part of that mission for you now is to be the chief. Laser for secretary of defense chief of staff is well. I'm we're just a small flight clinic where report to the eleventh medical group and Because of our location we do have a lot of the senior folks that are patients but It's probably six of our patients are senior people. Ninety four percents. Our sergeants majors petty officers whatnot and As i said we try to deliver the best care that.

"I'm John Baxter. This is John Baxter. Shovel hydrocarbons. Fossil fuels the price of oil. Note that the price of oil after bottoming during the worst of the crisis of the pandemic is now touching $60 headed higher. Why, because the recovery is underway. I welcome John Catsimatidis of Cats Round table. A man who knows the energy business as well as New York, and we're going to put these two things together. Because the economy of New York requires people to come back and do business. That's why we pay attention to the price of gasoline and in the whole area. All of is going in one direction in London and roam in Los Angeles in New York were in recovery. The vaccine is here. It's mitigating the risk. And the success of the vaccine means we can go back to work except John A very good evening to Keystone XL pipeline Since last we talked to very powerful voices have come out in support of reversing the president's decision to cancel Keystone XL Pipeline your position over these last weeks. One voice Is Mr Trump of the A F l C. I O and the second voice even more powerful Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia, the chair of the Senate Energy Committee. Will the president listen to them, John? Good evening to you. Well, I mean, either there's a game being played. And, uh, President Biden wants to make the People that helped elect him happy. What It's hurting the American people, and we talked about it last week, John. We've talked about that, under the scenario, closing the Keystone pipeline or not creating it. Saudi Arabia and the OPEC nations wind All Americans lose. The price of oil has gone up dramatically in the last 30 days. 60 days, eyes almost hit $60 a barrel today. And what does that mean? That means the price of food is going up. That means that the price of gasoline is going up. That means the price of airline tickets are going up. Everything is going up because everything goes by transportation. So you know what that means where they were president, Biden says. We're not going to raise taxes to the poor. Well, that's not correct. When you raise the prices of food. When you praise the prices of gasoline, that's attacks and every poor person. Every middle class person is going to pay more for their food. They're going to pay more for their Everything they buy for their homes because it's the course are getting larger because everything involves oil and It's called. It's just gonna cost everybody more money. And where does that lead to? Inflation and you're going to see inflation by the end of the year if we if the price of oil doesn't reverse herself and stabilize where energy superpower I have not trying to ruin it. But I have not been able to figure out why the White House made this mistake so early on, it's it's the strangest thing. The oil's going to be sold is going to travel. It's going to travel and In tanker cars going traveling pipelines. It's going to go to customers who are free to travel and pipelines. Yes, but in the governor of Michigan, besides is trying to make troubles up in Canada would I think it's line number five another M Bridge pipeline. They're just trying to make troubles and you know what's going to hurt. It's gonna hurt all the Democratic states of New York and Pennsylvania. And it's gonna hurt about it. Why is it happening? John who? Who is the audience who's pleased by this? They Do are they do they need to be told that the economy it wants to recover, and there's in there inhibiting it with these odd decisions. We've had a president. That's a Democrat. We have. Ah, we salute the new president, United States Joe Biden. Why is California Why is ill annoys? Why is New York not opening up the economies of those states and help the whole country go north? You know, President Trump is gone. We can't blame President Trump on everything. Why are those states not opening up for business? The price of oil is what we're watching right now, however, because the economy is got momentum, I think we're okay. John. I really do. I think we've come out from under the shadow of the Valley of the shadow of death. I think we're in New York. I'm worried about New York, John all right, well turned in New York now because his recent to worry We've talked about crime for some time. There has been a serious of incidences last week. Sometimes in the subways, sometimes not in the subways, the NYPD. You talked to them all the time. What is their position? About why these crime is happening again here in the winter to the highest law enforcement officer in New York City is the mayor of New York. He they could only do what the mayor of New York says that can do. Mr. De Blasio is not helping by saying that we're in a pandemic Every time somebody challenges him about crime, we W. ABC radio did a poll the other day. Are you safe going into the subways? Do you know the results of the poll? I could guess Because I don't feel safe going into this. It was 75 80%. People don't feel safe, right? And if you don't open up the if you don't create safety in our street to New York, Yes. What New York is gonna suffer even more. The people I wanted. People want to open up New York. People want to come back to New York. They want to be able to go out. You need New York. They want to be able to go to theater. We want New York back the way it used to be a governor Cuomo. Friend of yours. Long time friend of his family. Governor. Cuomo has said Valentine's Day is going to permit partial re opening of the restaurants directed himself today. It's going to open up Friday. Okay? No. Yeah. Stormer New Year March wants to make the the Asians Happy and Lunar New Year It's gonna open up. Does this mean he's going to stand aside and no longer getting our wage? I listen, I hope he I root for his success. I wrote that he opens up New York faster and faster. However, his own party is now speaking out against him his own party not just to do with the nursing homes, but with many of these decisions he's made has he lost the confidence of the Democratic majority in Albany. Well, he has He has a chance of losing it. If he acts fast and turned things around that he'll save his reputation. There is a story saying that if we had in New York had recall the way they do in California, Governor Cuomo would be in trouble. Do you think Recall is a wise Thing to have to stay recall. I think every city and every state should have the ability to recall because to be able to stand still and not be able to do anything if we have a real bad governor of Rio back Bad mayor. That's no way to live. All right, finally because you know the energy business and I'm keen on the energy business right now because of ki styles, Keystone XL Pipeline. What do you hear? Will the president reverse his decision? Will he listen to wiser voices? I would say that over the next 30 days, I think there's a good chance he will reverse his position because Otherwise, America loses. That is the best news. We can have, Mr Biden. It was a mistake. You made the mistake. Admit to it and reverse the decision reopened the building of Keystone XL Pipeline. John Catsimatidis Cats round table. I'm John Bachelor. This is the John battle.

"John Baxter. This is the job. That's our show my professionals, David Drucker of the Washington Examiner and John Fund International View Online. Well now, well, now suppose the story they're going to start writing in the next 24 hours, which is the second impeachment and trial by Senate. Of the now former president of the United States. Donald Trump, David I get I get excited when I read about what's wrong with the impeachment bill and how it will be cured by the House. Impeachment managers. And then I'm loved into thinking Not much is gonna happen here because senators air coming forward, saying this is unconstitutional or this is a regular or we're not going to permit evidence. What's the expectation now in Washington? Is this going to be 33 Ring circus? There? Is this going to be muted and summaries Red in the evening news. Well, John I expected to be somewhat muted. I expect the trial to be shorter than the former president's first impeachment trial. I think the Democrats are very cognizant of the fact that voters suffering from the pandemic. May not want them to waste too much time. Ah, adjudicating this article of impeachment, no matter how angry they are former President Trump and even if they hold him responsible for the siege of the capital in January, 6th and so I don't think they want a long drawn out trial with lots of evidence. Lots of sluts testimony. I'm not saying there's unanimity on that, but I think the powers that be have decided that a shorter trial Is a better try allow, and the whole point is that everybody is going to know from the perspective of people who hold President Trump former President Trump responsible for what happened on the sixth of January. Going to know that he has been held responsible and been punished. So, um, I think what you'll end up getting is, you know anywhere from 5 to 10, but probably more around 56. Republicans voting to convict It will be, of course, short of what they need for a conviction. And, um, we'll go about the rest of our February or the rest of our winner. Um, in this thing will be over. 3 to 6 Weeks was an estimate. Once upon a time. Is that still a number that makes sense, David No, I think it'll be sure than that. I think we're looking at two weeks. Max Max. Max. Max? Yes. Before spring time, John. What do the Republicans plan to respond? Are they going to show up and say unconstitutional? Are they going to read into the record Do you have in a sense of how the Republican Party Which is already voted almost is a body. I believe in for Rand Paul's initiative. How is going to respond to this? This recitation by the House managers? I think it will make two points. They don't want to argue the facts so much The fact you're not pretty, so they love you process and constitutionality, And they'll argue that this is a distraction from what Americans really want their Congress to focus on. Which is economic recovery and the pandemic. And in doing that, John, have they just play defense or they're going to go on offense and identify other instances where members of Congress have spoken out in a disorderly fashion over the last year. I think a lot of that happened in the house. And I don't think it had a great deal of effect. So you may see isolated instances of that. But the Senate prides itself on having a higher level of rhetorical debate. So not so much. David, the Democrats. The puzzle here is Joe Biden wants unity. Joe Biden wants cooperation. I understand there, you have to negotiate. In good faith in Washington. What do they hope to achieve what is the best outcome for the Democratic Party through these two weeks, if if if they stay to that by the end of February Look, I think if you were to talk to Democrats, they would tell you the best outcome would be that President Trump is convicted. They realized that that's not going to happen. But they believe politically, that there is little downside to holding the former president to account for what happened and for forcing if that's what it does Republicans to either defend him. Or try and whitewash what happened in his role in it as they see it, And on top of that, I think we need to understand that they were part of the Democratic base. Would be apoplectic if Democrats said For many other reasons, including that he's no longer in office, and we have more important crisis to deal with. We're going to sideline this that would not be acceptable. So you've seen President Biden trying to say very little about this? The White House trying not to comment on it. But it's something that Democratic voters are very keen on. And I don't think the Democrats believe that there is much downside to reminding Americans. Um what the 45th president did that. Didn't go over all that well, John what's the best outcome for the Republicans in the Senate? All the best outcome is the same probably is for the Democrats, which is that it takes a relatively short period of time. That they're no great mistakes made in the speeches or embarrassment and that People cannonballs parties to move on this quickly as possible to other matters. What I'm trying to figure John is this Is this an occasion for more rancor? Or can they can they find a way to move on afterwards and workers a body and not his two warring factions? Always going to be mixed. There's a great deal of hostility and animosity between the parties in the Senate. On the other hand, they also know In both sides that they're based. Expect something more from them. So it will be better. It will be rancorous. And it will also be short John Fund National View Online and the preview of Reagan. The movie is wonderful.

"I'm John Baxter. This is the job after so good evening. I welcome my professionals. David Drucker, The Washington Examiner John Fund of the National View Online. We take note the passing of a member of Congress. Ron right Republican from Texas. We turn immediately to Mr Wright's colleagues and the political scene on the eve of the second impeachment trial by Senate for Now. Private Citizen Donald Trump, David, I begin with the positive news of Sarah Huckabee. Looking to run for a very important post. I think her father held once upon a time very happily as the governor of Arkansas. Is this a political actor? All fresh or is she an outsider? How is she going to run this David to your understanding? She's going to run this as an ally, former President Donald Trump. That is the United in the focus of her message so far that she worked for him. She was a close adviser to him. She is a champion of him. He's endorsed her. Her candidacy has chased the lieutenant governor, Tim Griffin, out of the race. He's been planning to run for governor and be governor for quite some time, Tim Griffin. Was a congressman at one point. Republican from Arkansas went home ran for lieutenant governor. He's not going to run for state attorney general. And so that gives you an idea of the half that Sarah Huckabee Sanders has an Arkansas and again I would just note she's focused most of her attention on her service to the 45th president. And just in passing made reference to her father. Former governor Mike Huckabee. John Mr Fund. You have a wonderful story up at the National Review Online. I recommend everyone, especially Ronald Reagan. The movie. Where's it been? John? When's it gonna come out? It's been in the works for 10 years, and it's being financed independently, so studios don't get their fingerprints on it to try to change the script and yank it in a different direction. Stars Dennis Quaid, who got his start in the right stuff, and is that many fine world since then. It just finished filming at the Reagan Ranch and Reagan library. I was lucky enough to be present for that. And what is what is the theme here? Because Ron Reagan lived a long and complicated, extremely romantic life. They're going to spend a lot of time in Hollywood are going to spend a lot of time with G the governorship where John because there's a huge story here to reduce to less than two hours Well, The good news is it's going to be two hours and 25 minutes. Okay, There's a little bit more time. The other news is that the heart of the story is going to be a sectional, KGB agent. In Los based in Los Angeles, who is tasked to monitor Reagan's activities. When he starts out of the president of the Screen Actors Guild, and he follows his career for 40 years. He constantly sends warnings to Moscow. This man is quote a crusader unquote. It cannot be underestimated. Moscow ignores him to their everlasting regret. That's the device they used wonderfully in patent. Remember the German officer was was Passed to follow George Patton, their best general, and they couldn't He confounded them through the war. Now, David, you have a wonderful piece up right now about the governor of Maryland. A Mr Hogan, who I believe has recovered from cancer. He's a cancer survivor. I think he also had covert 19. I'm not certain about that. However, he's got great credibility when it comes to taking care of a blue state. As a Republican governor he's on. He's unsure that Mr Biden is meeting his expectations of Unity house. So David Well, look, the president has not moved off of his $1.9 trillion covert relief package He's met with Republicans herd them out on their concerns and listen to their counter offers. But he continues to say that he believes his package is what is needed and what Governor Hogan did in a video for AH group that urges bipartisan cooperation. Eyes, criticized the president and say that if he's serious about his inaugural pledge to bring both sides together And reduced partisan tensions in the country. He really should see a actual legislative compromise now in the same video, uh, the governor was critical of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. For also not doing enough to reach the actual compromise verses just criticizing President Biden's proposal, but I think it was notable that Governor Hogan, who Um, is interested in running for president in 2024. Unclear what his prospects would be given his, um and tagging ism toward President Trump and how the base feels about trump and they love him. But still president Governor, Hogan has now shifted to the new regime, and he's criticizing President Biden. We'll see if it's a strident as itwas with President Trump. But, um I think they're he's intending to appear at least even handed, if not a little bit more traditional where you have a Republican of criticizing the Democratic president, rather than a Republican. Criticizing a Republican Presidents. David is my memory correct. He's both a cancer survivor and a covert 19 survivor. Cancer. I know for sure You're correct about that. And I think you're right. But I'm also now second guessing myself. No. Forgive us for goodness. Governor Hogan with cancer is enough. You don't need another one. It's okay. You survived that. I'm glad you're with us. John. Joe Mansion since you published your piece at the National Review Online mansion's been on the vote for the stimulus package, which happened I believe early in the early hours of last Friday. 51 50. These vice president determined it. Does this change your opinion of Joe Mansion or is he still the swing vote? Don't swing road in the consummate dealmaker. The way to get more for West Virginia is to vote to have this bill proceed. And I suspect that you mentioned will be with the Democrats more often than not. He can always hold out for more, and he can always with the other side if he doesn't get more. The puzzle back to mention that it's not a huge puzzle is just a challenge. He he's not for election till 24. So he's got four good years here to develop. He'll be 77 years old. Does he want to stay in the Senate? John? Or do we think this is His last four years. He has found the Senate very frustrating. Having been a governor and I strongly suspect that if he wants to run again, there will be a governor. The governorship will be vacant in 2024 u two term limits. So he doesn't Oh, Chuck Schumer anything in theory? That's why he's going to put practice the squeeze game rather than to be squeezed. David Mitt Romney. I'm I'm very impressed by the fact that he's come up with a proposal that looks expensive, but, you say is revenue neutral. For couples, American couples and their Children eyes this a surprise to the Republican Party. It's actually a new thing. Well, it may surprise some because they have long thought of Mitt Romney, as you know, a small government. Uh, cut the programs when people let the market in the private sector, uh, do as much as possible. But this is really part of Ah. Sort of new wave of Republican proposals that we've begun to see more and more of over the past four years where Republicans have shifted away from The party libertarian leanings of the latter part of the Reagan years. The Reagan era, I should say and come to embrace government is having a roll through programs funded by taxpayers. To help the needy to help people that are less fortunate that helped to help people that need a leg up now what Republicans tried to do and this is what Romney is doing with this proposal is Developed better programs and to pay for them get rid of old programs. Romney also proposes proposes to do away with the tax deduction for state and local taxes. As a way to keep this revenue neutral. So it's a conservative, a sort of new conservative approach to helping needy Americans. And in that regard, it's not surprising because we've seen so much of it lately. Is this the new Romney? Or is this the old Romney that's reintroducing himself after Trump? I think it's probably the same. Romney that as governor of Massachusetts came up with the health care program that Have the state mortgage deeply involved in in administering health care..

"New York one more time John Baxter show off four hours available. All the time on distinguished podcasters such as I'm John. Not sure this is the job. That's her show Congressman Devin Nunes 22, California The sand marking Valley is with me and in discussing his podcast and The ability of America to trust in the news that's coming through on social media. We deal with these strange stories such as Twitter's, such as Facebook, etcetera, but then we come to something where we can anticipate is going to be difficult to believe the information. This is the impeachment trial. The second impeachment trial of the former president of the United States, Donald Trump. Kevin, this is going to start within these next hours. It's going to start next week. John Yoo of the University of California, Berkeley, has have lengthy peace and National Review online. I recommended to everybody About what's wrong with this show trial is how he identifies it. There's so many moving parts here. I could go on for minutes about what's wrong with it. Why is this happening? Devon? What is the mood in Washington? The new president said he wanted unity. Why is his party making these rankers remarks and anticipating what clearly is not a fair balance about and balanced presentation? Well, The quick answer is is they don't care. The more they keep this out there, the more that they can try to label Republicans on try to smear us that we're responsible for all the writing that's been occurring. And all the breakdown in the institutions and all the breakdown across the country were now all domestic terrorists. It fits the narrative that they want to build. So so I was actually it's interesting question, John. Just a few minutes ago, I was talking to one of our newer members. Who was asking me what it was like under the Pelosi regime, Obama regime back in 2000 and nine and 10 and what it was like to operate in Congress. And I said, Look, At that time. It was really chaotic. They couldn't they couldn't run couldn't keep the trains running on time. They bring us in on Friday, and you know we'd sit here for days on end and not do anything on a Monday. Then we wouldn't do anything all week until Friday. And then we get out. Not not do anything. Um, but they didn't go so low is where they would just start smearing multiple members of Congress on go so far as like they did this week. And Booty member of Congress off a committee, which is unprecedented in 240 years. And, you know, every member of Congress says things they wish they wouldn't have said at some point in their lifetime. I mean, I think every man and woman on earth Such things that they would regret. This is such a strange issue, because, well, this is they went after somebody for something they said years ago, two or three years ago. Who's just about it? So it's really worrying an unprecedented uncharted Territory. So the same goes for the impeachment fiasco that's going on. It's all part of the narrative that they wanna build. So the impeachments gonna be about riding mobs. Insurrections. Domestic terrorists are everywhere. We've got fencing around the capital with barbed wire National Guardsmen out there. With with with automatic weapons. It's just a surreal situation, John. We even have we have to go through metal detectors now to get on the house floor, because what they're the narrative they're building out there is that But The Democrats. They're all scared of the Republicans. Republicans have guns and they might they might shoot, they might shoot one of us. So now we're all going through magnetometers as we come into the house floor. They've made the poor Capitol police now are are like the, uh, they're likely a secret secret police, you know, back in the back in the cold War days where they're patting down the members wanting us and Capitol police in a very Tough position. And so This is the atmosphere that they've created here on what you're watching, unfortunately, is just the decay of one of the most important institutions in the United States of America. That's the Legislative branch of our government, the United States Congress. It's just completely melting away. All normal decorum is thrown out the window. You've got half of the Democrats arm or that air Sitting in their basement, watching Netflix eating popcorn on their having somebody vote for him by by proxy. They're not even coming here, even though we all were vaccinated for for the coronavirus. Why were we vaccinated? Because we're supposed to come here and deliberate. We're supposed to be working, you know, trying to work out our differences and communicating. But this is what a poulet bureau system socialists love. They love to keep everybody at home. Keep them in their basements. Those of us who want to be here who think it's inappropriate to be to be voting from home in our basements on? I don't have a basement, John, but They want us to come here to be painful. They only let I mean there's there's an entire wall around the entire capital, John.

Certainly John and this comes right out of Beijing's playbook because we've seen this, for instance, in Beijing's attempt to inflame political opinion in the United States, which is included not just propaganda, but has also incitements to violence, which are not only subversion, but acts of war.

It's Ramsey, Mazda's Sundays with Sinatra with your host, the vice chairman of the board. Joe Piscopo. Thank you very much. You're marvelous. Thank you so much. Ladies and gentlemen, it's Ramsey Mazda's Sundays with Sinatra this Sunday night at 8 P.m. with me, Joe Piscopo and Music radio. ABC. I'm John Baxter. This is the John bastard. So good evening, I welcome David Drucker of the Washington Examiner writing about the politics of the moment in the Republican Party, all eyes on Ohio. The announcement by Senator Portman that he will not stand for re election in 2022 means that the Republican Party has an opportunity and a challenge to hold the seat. That is in an increasingly Republican centric state. Ohio was not a risk to my reading in the 2020 election, despite all of the energy The Democrats poured into other battleground states and increasingly, Ohio is understood as a safe Republican seat. But David A. Very good evening to you. The number of dropouts now exceeds my ability to keep score. So I'm going to say your most recent drop out. I will not run for this Open post is Dave Yost. Who is he? And why did he make why would he have made an attractive candidate? For Senator Portman's seat. Good evening to you. Good evening. John Day videos, is the Republican attorney general of Ohio. He's run statewide and won statewide three times on D. He's really a Republican. That reminds me a lot of Portman, Loki and demeanor but aggressive. Otherwise very involved in policy matters and interested and And legislation. Legislative accomplishments accomplishments. Obviously his attorney general, It's not about passing legislation, but he's been very active on the major issues of the day, where and when he can, and you're right to point out that it is interesting that right out of the gate with a midterm election Um, in President Biden's first term, and they Republican leaning state that all we are getting is no. No enough. Lieutenant Governor John if you stood No representative Jim Jordan, No and Now, Dave Yost know now people obviously have their their own reasons for this. Jim Jordan could have easily wanna Republican primary it for Senate, depending on the field, But he also would have had to take a risk and His particular district. Even with redistricting coming up, he has nothing to worry about, and will never have anything to worry about. And he has a a slot on a major committee in the house where he gets to run, run something and be come. Chairman. If they take back, Georgie He's really a creature of the house, so you can understand why he didn't want to run. But it's a sharp observation that everybody's been slow out of the gate. I think one of the reasons is that nobody expected Rob Portman and retire. It really surprised everybody. He didn't even drop hints that he was going to retire. And so now everybody is assessing. I do think you know whether it's lieutenant governor or Mr Ghost. There's a question about whether or not they could get through Republican primary. Is paired against, UM, a candidate more closely aligned and defined as closely lined with Mr Trump and defined as a trumpian kind of Republican, especially an attitude. Versus somebody affair or not defined as an establishment candidate, so it that could be what's holding some people back and a lot of the names we're hearing. Are people that were either associated with Trump were thought to reflect trump in some manner, plus the couple of potential self funders deep pockets and that sometimes scares people away. So I think eventually will have a field of Multiple candidates, but, yeah, you know, it's it's not like it's necessarily the heaviest lift of all time. And yet there's been so much caution. I think one final thing on this. I think a lot of Republicans around the country as well as in Washington are trying to assess What it means right now to be in a post trump period. With Trump out of the White House yet not out of sight. And so it's not exactly post trump, either. Yes, and into that gray zone come to candidates for 2024 Christine Om. Of the South Dakota and Mike Pompeo, former secretary of state appearing at CPAC, you report and burnishing their credentials. I think that's the cliche. Although we know Christine Oh, I'm very well through the virus. He's performed with great attack. Keeping her Again that were applauded work. Why, In fact, one of his remarks about genocide and weaker of the Wickers is endorsed by the new secretary of state. Certainly a demonstration of continuity between the The administration's are these to the first official out of the gate. I want to be a candidate or if we got other names that don't need to appear in CPAC. Well, a little above. We know who they are. We know that they're running where we know that they want to run. But CPAC offers them the first opportunity since Trump left office to begin the work themselves or continue the work of courting the Republican base and the activists. You're going to need behind you to mount a successful bid, and particularly Or Mike Pompeo, who has been secretary of state before that CIA director for the last four years. He's been active in courting, unofficially courting donors and business executives and establishing relationships. Cultivating friendships with these people, But he hasn't been able to be overtly political until now. And so this begins for him an opportunity to do that. For governor known she was a top trump surrogate traveled all around the country campaign for him in 2020. So this is a continuation for her, but also with trump out of office. Even though ever present, it does allow them a little bit of freedom to begin to define themselves. Not just as supporters of him and continuing his own legacy or his, you know agenda but how they might be different, how they might be different compared to the potential competitors and how they might want to find the party. And it gives people a real opportunity to see them for the first time for who they are, and not just sort of ancillary figures within the Trump. Orbit. And and so I think that will make CPAC for the first time in a long time. Intriguing. It's always interesting, and there's always plenty to do there, but I think it's going to be very intriguing. And I don't think that gnome. On Bumpy are going to be the last 2024 contenders that are confirmed speakers on their main stage there, David I'm going to draw an analogy to two other instances where the party was unsure about its next candidate for the presidency. One in 2012 2013. After Mr Mr Romney lost the election, there was some recognition that he'd run again that he'd run for the open seat in 2016. And there were people Moon hovering around figuring well, Romney's got uneven. On easy access, and I can recall being called by a dominant democratic player. No names, but in any event dominant influence, sir. As saying. Well, of course it's going to be Romney. This would have been in the winter of 15 gonna be Romney and I said, No, I don't think he's going to run. The Mr Romney made his announcement that he's not going to run surprising the Democrats. Now. The reason I tell that story is isn't this routine David that you think that the person who just lost is going to run again in four years time, and it never happens. Mrs. Clinton was often mentioned in the winter of 2017 with Mr Trump and artifice. As Of course, she'll run again and you'll win and she's viable and look what she's saying. So is it possible? That's what we're seeing David that old the old story about not quite used to getting away from the candidate, though he's not going to reappear. So I think in this case, it's a little bit of both. And I say that because you're absolutely right. We always hear this kind of speculation and often it never amounts to much, Um However, um, it least the way Mr Trump and his allies have been presenting matters. He plans to be a dominant force in Republican politics. Campaigning for candidates intervening the primaries. Holding events at some point again being if media picture of some sort where, as compared to recent predecessors, both Democrat and Republican once they've left the White House. Go on just into a self imposed exile for some period of time, both because they're exhausted and because they want to give their predecessors room to maneuver. They want to give their political parties a chance to have a fresh start that eventually Friends..

Go Lincoln, who has pen for all of us, an item that is unforgettable. Once you glance at it. This is the story and the forward right now of Nazi monuments. How many monuments honor fascists, Nazis and murderers of Jews around the world. And as the headline promises, you'll be shocked. I am and I've done a deal of history reading these last decades left. Congratulations and good evening to you. Thank you. For this. It's available in the forward. Impressing you along with some important people to get this into an E book and get it on Amazon right away because it is a treasure trove that will grow. What you have done is identified the unacceptable not to tear them down immediately. To challenge them to educate the population around them. That is likely unaware of what's happened in the past and what this means in the future. First of all, What is the project? As you understand it what you've assembled here? What does it mean to you left Good evening, too. Thank you. Ah and personal. Thank you to the forward for hosting this. The project to me is I was just fascinated that there's now this battle of of World War two is it truly becomes history? And you have all of these monuments, the vest majority of which move where put up in the past 20 years. So I've been covered 320 monuments and street names for Nazi collaborators over 16 countries and three continents. And when I say Nazi collaborators, I don't just mean somebody who gave like a Nazi a ride when the when their tire blew out. I mean, People could directly give military assistance to the third right where people could directly participated in the Holocaust. So these are not just questionable people. These are actual Nazi collaborators. And they have statues everywhere. I just once they started kept finding them and they're just they're an example of battles over history. And they're also just a shocking example of how we talk about Confederate monuments. But this has not come up at all. Even though this is Holocaust distortion. Well, it's coming up right now. Let's go to your first in the United States. Stepan, Bandera and Roman shook a bitch. Too much of a bus in upstate New York and Wisconsin. Who were they? And are the people of upstate New York and Wisconsin? Informed They were both Nazi collaborators in from Ukraine, members of the Organization of Ukrainian nationalists which participated in the Holocaust, who have it in particular, actually served in the Nazi exhilarate Police. You know, a police battalion? So this is a man who actually served not to Germany. Then she went on to murder 700 to 100,000 poles, which which is another fascinating things Offensive America let in. Thousands of Nazi collaborators, thousands of concentration guards Holocaust perpetrators. We welcomed them with open arms, despite the fact that we lost over 400,000 American troops fighting them. A man by the name of Me how all of it let the Serbian Chetnik check. Nick Paramilitary has statues in Cleveland, Milwaukee and to Chicago suburbs. Who was he? He was one of the hardest people for me to write about because she was so Checkered. He's somebody who's troops served. Allied with the Nazis, allied also with Mussolini. Okay, So this is somebody who was allied with the third Rice and whose groups also did carry out ethnic cleansing off other groups. He was also allied with Serbia's puppet government of the Nazis, which killed Serbia's used so fast. They were one of the quickest considered Jew Free nations in World War two where all the Jews have been exterminated. What He is also This man drives a Mikhailovich and his techniques and towards the later part of the war they switched, and they started working with allies and they wound up rescuing..

"I'm John Bachelor. This is the John Baxter Show. I welcome John Fund of the National View Online to introduce us to the man behind the man behind the man in the Biden administration. He's a recognizable figure. A man who is celebrated in the Democratic Party is a folk hero. His name Senator Bernie Sanders, John. Ah, very good evening to your story in the National View Online is a revelation to me because I hadn't put all these moving pieces together. Mr Biden is the nominee and the president of the Democratic Party, because, as I recall before the pandemic changed the story, it was presumed that Sanders was on his way to an easy victory over the field. And then there was an intervention. I think that's a polite way to put it. And it was Mr Biden. What does Joe Biden Oh, Bernie Sanders. And what does the Democratic Party Oh, Bernie Sanders. Good evening to you. Well, thanks, John. Remember that in 2016. When Bernie Sanders lost the nomination, Hillary Clinton, he gave a very backhanded endorsement was rather grouchy. And a lot of Sanders voters are there sat home in November, or some of them even voted for the Anti establishment Donald Trump. So Joe Biden wanted to avoid that. So he conducted the peace treaty with Sanders after you won the nomination. Sanders was not gonna with beat Donald Trump. And that's why the Democratic establishment turned to Joe Biden at their last bulwark against having the Socialist Sanders on the ticket and the treaty was that Sanders would take seriously. But it would take seriously Sanders his position on issues in the point people that Sanders would like to keep positions. Sanders presumably is still a socialist. He was when he was a younger man. How does that translate immediately into what we're seeing Joe Biden do. Do you see it yet, John, Or is it to come? Well, I think Biden is the ultimate transactional politician. Untold Irish Paul from Wilmington, Delaware, by way of Scranton, and he likes to placate all of the wings, the Democratic Party, so the foreign policy wing is pretty much establishment. The Labor Department's being run by the unions. The environmentalists got the killing of the Keystone Pipeline, the racial Justice warriors. They're getting a lot of the sub cabinet positions, but a lot of the top positions like Attorney General and Department of Education are going to relative moderates. So Sanders is basically the Bidens basically the broker All of these factions, But the Sanders faction is probably the biggest of them all individually, and he's giving them the most individual portion of the pie. Mr. Sanders is emphasizing That in 2017 2018. He was against using the Senate majority to pass a tax laws, which is how the trump people did it. Is and you're a piece identifies the fact that Sanders is now ready to use the protocol that he denied in 2017 2018. How does it work, John? Crucial is traditionally have always decide that the interest by the names and if you're going to get to the socialist utopia, you have to break a few eggs. And so, Sanders says, Well, it was unfair and ridiculous and horrible that the Republicans And, uh, I didn't ask for 60 votes to pass their program. But that was when it was benefiting the rich. Now that this program is going to benefit the poor, we can go do it. So he Sanders as head of the chairman of the Budget Committee, which is a very powerful post in the Senate. Is going to try to run roughshod over the Republicans and passes much of his social welfare legislation and health care expansion, as he can using just a simple majority, But of course Just one senator of Joe Mansion or West Virginia or Christian Cinema of Arizona can put a halt to that is, is Bernie Sanders, old fashioned left, John or is he Is he Church of woke left, Do we? No. Well, he's adapted to the Church of Work left, but actually, you know the Bernie Sanders, who first got elected the 19 eighties, um, was on old style Industrial union Democrat. By the way, opposed gun control in the Vermont of the 19 eighties because, as he once told the constituent how we're going to have the revolution if they're armed, and we're not So what we're looking at, then is a man who's mixing his positions over many decades. Do you expect this to extend into other legislation besides the redistribution, mouth? The socialist care about do you expect to see Aggressive progressive politics, not just socialist politics, but progressive politics. Well, it'll be interesting how they handled the environmental issues because you know Biden's canceling of the power permits for the Keystone Pipeline. John cost 11,000 Union workers their jobs 11,000. And these air pipe fitters and bricklayers and all kinds of good union jobs, and they've been promised to be retrained for a job somewhere else. But of course, the federal government is a horrible job, job retraining, So I think there any standards And the radical fringe of the solar power. Wind turbine environmental left May have. Shall we say a bit of a conversation or reckoning in the future because their goals may not be heading in the same direction. The sender's go along with the idea of no more fracking. Now I know Biden keeps Twisting that around. But banning fracking on federal land is a predicated for banning fracking or restricting it completely. Just Sanders care about that. Not particularly, but I think that he goes along with the environmentalists, because, you know, they scratch his back. He scratches their back. But in the end, you know, fracking. Creates a lot of union jobs, and I think I think they're going to be there. Fissures and tensions within the Democratic coalition that will come out now that their governing and not just campaign does Biden object to the fact that Sanders is agenda is now his agenda. Is that okay with Joe is he just he share the wealth. You know, I think Sanders is agenda is bides agenda on Tuesdays and Thursdays and on Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays, Budden has a different agenda. Biden is not a moderate. He's not a liberal. He's not a radical. He is a transactional politician. And no one is going to be completely satisfied with him. And no one is going to be completely mad at him in the Democratic coalition. I've saved the best till last. The mystery of Bernie Sanders Mittens. Everybody seen him sitting there listening to the Festivities for the inauguration. John, you've you've tracked down the origin of the mittens. Explain, please. We have about a minute. Well. Jim Harris is a very nice public school teacher in Essex Junction, Vermont. She had a mitten business. She gave Bernie one of the her pairs of mittens because she liked Bernie and his policies. But it turns out that when Bernie made her mittens famous, she didn't have any mittens to sell because she's going out of business because high taxes and federal government regulations distort your business, and she's very bitter about it. So the mittens that we see Bernie wearing their collectors. They're eBay items Now they're not. They're not to be ordered from Amazon tonight because of the confiscatory taxes of the future. Well, John, you've heard of last of the Mohicans. I guess that was the last of the mittens. John Fund tracking down the important stories. Where did the mittens come? From?

"John Baxter. This is John Baxter Show. Good evening. I welcome Sebastian Gorka, The host of America first. To comment on the new president of the United States and the conduct of Congress. In these last hours, the president has been on the job a little more than a day, and we seem to have a disconnect between The hill where the House and Senate are in session and the remarks the president delivered at his inauguration, calling for unity calling for an end. Ah must and this uncivil war, SEB. The puzzle is not the president's words there to be celebrated and given given support. The president is Miss Pelosi's words, speaker of the house within these last hours. She's indicated that not only she going forward with the bill of impeachment for incitement To insurrection. But also she believes that the way to unify the country is to put the president on trial before the U. S senate and possibly possibly prosecute members of the House for their remarks in January. 6 during the debate Over the acceptance of the electoral college. Now the puzzle to me Savage how Ms Pelosi believes this will unify the country because my Republican party the one I belonged to all these years. Does not believe the president was guilty of insect incitement to insurrection if you do, but the party doesn't in general and also said, are there 17 Republican senators who will vote? With 50 Democrats to convict the president. Can 12345 that's a big numbers Have good evening too. Good evening, John. Where every week we try on D. I understand the rationale dystrophy jik thinking for decisions made by the Democrats on this is it? This is the final straw. John. I I need not posit any other justification than this is just a demented surrender to your own ideology when you stand on the speaker of the house, using language from the trees and statutes of federal code about giving aid and sucker to those who invaded, laid siege to Congress. As you are discussing other members off the house. It just it leaves you speechless, And there's a radio host. That's never a good thing. And this comes after we have Steve Cohen from Tennessee. Saying, but the majority of the national Guard who have left their day jobs to protect the capital, they happen to be white and male. That is the demographic that voted for President Trump Vest. Four. They pose a domestic threat as the incoming secretary of defense, a former general States in his Senate testimony that we have racist in our military who are quote unquote Evite enemy. John, Where's the harmony? Where's the unity? 74 Million Americans voted for Donald Trump. This simply will not end well breaking news. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is proposing to delay the start of Donald Trump's impeachment trial until February. Which is ours way to give the former president's lawyers more time to prepare, saying in a statement that the Senate, the presidency and Trump quote deserve a full and fair process. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says her chambers ready to send an article of impeachment to the Senate. Assumed it is ready to hold a trial puzzle again. Mitch McConnell asked for a delay, but 3 to 6 weeks while at the same time the president of the United States is saying, we're entering a war time undertaking as many as half a million Americans could be dead. Soon enough of the Corona virus. He's ordered then National Defense Act to make available all the equipment, everything. We need wartime footing. SEB does not need a Show trial, which is what this would be without 67 votes. It'll it'll end with acquittal. Ah show trial that will read a repeat at all the allegations of January 6th and afterwards repeat all of them. And to no end to no no resolution, But it will do it on television from the American people. So let me think through what this could mean. Does Miss Pelosi does. Mr Schumer believe that their agenda is not possible because that's what they're doing. They're delaying anything they could do in the first under days. When there is ostensibly a reason to work with the new president. Do they believe that they could get nothing and therefore they're satisfied with the show trial? Is that possible? Uh, I'm not dodging the question, John, but But all I know is the following. They've already said the Democrats who now have every level of power in government have said they're not going to get to the next Cove it relief package until March March, John So in the meantime, what are they going to do? They're going to try and prosecute a private citizen in the highest political deliberative body in the land on the one charge, Remember, there was only one charge in the impeachment. No, never is there no hearings. There were no witnesses. There was no evidence there was a charge, please. That was one charge incitement to violence, Insurrection, which everybody has looked at the timeline the violent breach. Of the congressional perimeter started 40 minutes before the president finished his speech on the lips. I was there in the front row listening, so it will be a fast they try to Marta him. They're going to try and do it together. I think there's one guaranteed thing. I don't do predictions, but I will guarantee one thing if they proceed. If Mitch McConnell acquiesces Donald Trump will be back in politics more powerful than he has ever. Bean as the day factor kingmaker off the opposition if they try to do this to him as a private citizen, all right, let's look at other members of the Senate who have their own agendas and puzzle through this because there's There clearly is an organizing principle here. I just don't see it. Seven Democratic senators, do you know them shared? Brown, the most liberal of the Democratic senators put an ethics complaint against Ted Cruz and Josh Holly. Ted Cruz of Texas, Josh Holly of Missouri for their remarks on January 6th. The president says unity, this guarantees that the Senate will become in these next year's 50 50. Nothing but turmoil. I mean, this is the atmosphere that was true in the 18 57 of senators rising and fear of their safety on the floor of the Senate. And to charge Ted Cruz and Josh Holly. It tells me they want to provoke. They want trouble to what end? How do they gain from this? The election's over Biden is is the president. What do they gain from it? I think it Xuemei be just a very Simplistic calculation. I mean, What do they do without Donald Trump? What? What is the last four years being about? It's about demonizing the President. United States everything. Everything. Was about Donald Trump from the fake charges of Russia, Russia, Russia all the way up to the fine people on both sides of the issue in Charlottesville until Hillary Hillary just said, What is it two days ago? That Donald Trump was probably on the phone with Putin as they were raiding Congress. They can't abide the idea that they don't have a whipping horse or whipping boy. That's what they're trying to see. Donald Trump has, but it will backfire You the sympathy for Donald Trump is growing because they see the American people want America Open. They want that jobs back, and they want eight and relief. They don't want Biden talking on an auto queue that we have to wear masks on planes when we've been wearing masks on planes for the last Or months. John Sebastian Gorka.

"I'm John Dexter, This is the John Baxter Show. I welcome Chris Rico, the CEO of Scholars calm. This is the scholar report. We are in the interregnum between the Trump Administration and the Biden administration were also in that pause between when the vaccines exists when they're being distributed. And when we can re open our economies and share again, the prosperity that was here just a moment ago in February, March of 2020, Chris Good evening to you first. Bloomberg has a fetching article today. About reflation, not inflation. You have a global business you travel widely. Inflation is the bugaboo of the 20th century from the sixties, my youth to the eighties, my seniority when I was out of college in New York. Inflation, damaged the U. S economy, inhibited prosperity and crippled the stock market. It went away, but it were people worry about it coming back. In your travels. Reflation is the positive thing. Growth brings what appears to be the growth and prices. Are we seeing that now? Or is it too early to look for reflection? Good evening to you. Even done so far would say it appears to be too early. The financial markets specifically, the stock market has been under a ever growing bubble. When that bubble pops is anyone's guess, but because there's so much money that's being invested into the system from government subsidy and other so you have an inflationary bubble around assets, stocks, homes and others. The said in the U. S government over the last, say 25 30 years his spent in order an amount of time trying to minimize inflation have that healthy what they would consider a 2% inflation rate. Fearing that the best way to maximize jobs and reach full employment. The challenge now being there so many artificial factors impacting the economy from stimulus to the virus to other, it's hard to get a good read, but in general inflation is good. If you do not have inflation, If you don't have growth in wages, another you risk what happened to Japan in the nineties of a deflationary cycle that is something very difficult to break out of. The politics of the moment include President elect Joe Biden. Announcing another relief plan. Another stimulus package of nearly true $2 trillion, including minimum wage to be raised federally to $15 and larger checks to be mailed out to individuals, whether they're working or not. In addition to emergency aid for states and local governments, in particular large cities such as the one I'm in that has a budget gap. Will that to your measure, help the small businesses that you watch? Struggle as you travel across the country, Chris It effectively. This was simply a sugar high. The government is putting money in people's pockets because it's politically popular to do so the on leeway to get many of the businesses that are challenged in this pandemic. Um to Ah, good state is to reopen the economy's get the vaccine out and try to return to normal quickly as possible. The government cannot print us out of This business cycle and all we're doing is delaying the pain. Chicago Lori Lightfoot, the mayor of Chicago, who has been through a difficult year of turmoil, and, of course, the shutdown in the pandemic. Is announcing. In some fashion everything here is a little caged. But in some fashion, there will be a reopening of restaurants and bars and other places where people can meet. Because the reason is given the private gatherings are not regulated and their ah source of infection. In addition, the economy is broken and reopening with people. Given the right to proceed carefully or not, is a way forward for Chicago. We also have a governor in New York Governor Cuomo. Who says that he's studying reopening the bars, the restaurants, the casinos, the theaters because, as the governor says, If we don't have reopened the economy, we won't have one to reopen. Is this a positive Chris? Or are they teasing us again? It's a positive, but I would say in traveling last several weeks in many states, both blue and red in many cities, both blue and red. Many of the restaurants and bars are reopening on their own on the simple basis that if they do not reopen They're out of business, and you have people's livelihood that have been taken away by the government. Now for months after month after month after month, they have nothing to lose. So they would favor taking a fine or penalty or risk to, at least have a chance of staying alive, as opposed to guaranteed death by staying closed, So I think the Governors and some of the mayor's air saying, Well, we're going to reopen into it gradually, that's already happening. People have had enough and they're taking back their freedom. The puzzle is the vaccine is here. And the decision to distribute the vaccine is in the hands of state government, city governments, municipalities counties. And they're mixed stories. You point me to one story about the states that are doing best for distribution of the vaccine. They get their limited numbers of vaccines, a cloud each week and each week the steak. It's a new supply and is charged with the distribution. That's simple enough. West Virginia, you point to, and I believe North Dakota are doing very well. New York is not doing well. California is not doing well. Is that the nature of big government? Chris? We shouldn't ask too much from people who regarded the post office as acceptable behavior these many decades. Fascinating. The see Some of these governors specifically blue state governors who have said We're waiting on federal ex federal y federal Z. We're waiting on a vaccine. Okay, Now you've got it. Who will hold the governor's accountable for that distribution, making sure within those States and across the country that that's done in efficient away as possible in West Virginia, where they're having great success. They operational honest the National Guard to spearhead that distribution so government can do things right. If they're smart enough, they're focused on it. But now we're starting to peel away the politics and get to the reality of how fast can you get this distributed out? You have a global business, so I wanna make everybody in America feel better. By asking. How is Europe doing right now? What you know from your colleagues. Europe is most certainly in the increasingly darkest of dark winters, where in the UK in the Netherlands in Germany, and many of the countries there now locked down to their houses, with the only ability to go out. You go to purchase food, But you're seeing an increasingly tight lockdown and also increasingly despondent and angered citizenry saying, How long can this continue? Is there food security? What do you hear, Chris? In the UK Specifically, we're getting reports from our employees there that shelves are starting to become more and more bear and with the action that Mr Johnson took today to further shut off. The UK from all air transit in all transit in and out of the country. The fear would be It's only going to get worse. All right, so that makes us feel better because it's not that bad here in l. A. I'm told that One third of the people have already been tested positive or recovered from the virus. The lockdowns have not succeeded. If that was the aim, what would have been worse than one third? I guess his two thirds However, I'm also told from a colleague that there's generally people not obeying the mandates of staying home or not going out. That doesn't mean that businesses are reopening. But it does mean that it might. We might have reached a point in California where the government is not to be trusted. You travel widely, Chris Are there mixed stories across the country? As the newspapers say, the Red States air open. The blue states are not our their pockets everywhere. Their pockets everywhere and you're also just seeing people that have had enough. I think the populace seeks to comply and seeks to do the right thing. But it's very difficult to say to someone who does not have a job cannot afford to pay the mortgage or buy food or Christmas gifts for the kids. You need to stay home..

"John Baxter. This is the John Baxter show. Welcome my colleagues. That is my car. American greatness. Andrew McCarthy. National Review Online, the subjects his impeachment and after we begin with an appe head in the Bloomberg opinion written in these last hours by Michael Bloomberg, the Eponymous hero of Bloomberg opinion and a candidate for the presidency. Most recently, Mr Bloomberg writes, President Donald Trump deserved to be impeached again. This time for his sustained an unprecedented attempt to invalidate the results of the election and cite the worst assault on the peaceful transition of power our country has ever seen. Most important thing now is for a Senate vote to happen as quickly as possible, so that the specter of this president and all the ugly division he represents does not hang over the new Biden administration. And quote, Gentlemen, I begin with the events of 24 hours past. Mrs Pelosi and the House leadership moved one count. In a bill of impeachment. It was successful in the final vote 232 to 197. The word incitement was prominent in that bill of impeachment. And you have written at length that this is an inn up a new inappropriate use of the word incitement in that bill, How so good even to you, Andy. Good evening. John and Patty is well, John. It's really both words are objectionable Incitement and Insurrection. And I should preface this by saying, I believe that President Trump committed impeachable offenses and that this Pleading this article of impeachment could have been written in a way that would have been much more effective and that would have spelled out impeachable offenses and made it more difficult. For people to vote to acquit, So I'm not. I'm not trying to make an argument in hope of, you know, helping the president gets clear here. I'm just pointing out there are significant Legal Proof. And constitutional problems with this impeachment, which is why it will. Ultimately, if they press the matter. It will lead Tonto exactly the opposite of what people like. Bloomberg wanted only to President Trump being acquitted and then being able to not only be relevant for as long as two trial takes place but also get acquitted and claimed vindication at the end. But as far as incitement is concerned. I've actually prosecuted. Incitement case. They're rare prosecutions in in the federal law, and it's because the reason they're rare is you know there's a colloquial sense of incitement. And then there is the technical legal sense of excitement. The colloquial sense the sense that we use the word when we use it in everyday talk is that you stir someone to do something. On its not necessarily got an overtone of violence, whereas in federal law, the crime of Solis of incitement is defined as solicitation of a crime of violence. So you have to clearly Express a desire that violent act occurred. There has to be proof beyond a reasonable doubt that you intended the violent act to occur, and also proof beyond a reasonable doubt. That you were in a position to bring the outcome about and there was a imminent possibility of its happening. With respect to what Trump said. At the speech in the lips. There's no chance that they could make at that kind of evidence, and it's true enough to say that as we covered many times, especially last year, you don't need A prosecutable penal offensive in order to have a knack of impeachment that is a high crime and misdemeanor, but what they're accusing him of is inciting an insurrection. And under the circumstances, he didn't not only didn't solicit violence he didn't call for insurrection. What he did was he gave a demagogic speech that stirred up the crowd. But I think as the fax come, and we're already learning that some of the violence was already going on at the Capitol while he was still speaking So you know they're gonna have proof problems. They're going to have this profound constitutional issue about whether you can impeach somebody on remove someone who's already been removed. That is whether you can have an impeachment trial when the president's already out of office. That's a big constitutional issue, and I point these things out simply because Impeachment is intentionally made up Hill under the Constitution. It's very hard to do you have to get to third Super majority of the Senate, and when your when your prosecutor and you're trying to prove something, that's uphill, what you want to do is give your jury reasons to want to acquit to convict rather The last thing you want to do is give them rationalizations that would justify acquittal and that's what they've done here. That is Well, Andy isn't lack of the absence of evidence. Reason that they only went at it for eight hours. I mean, if you talk about the hill being steeped Democrats have certainly done their best to kind of level of heaven to Yeah, they have. And, you know, actually, I think the thing here is that this was mainly a political Exercise, not the building of a case that's designed to succeed, so you have to look, I think the bottom line is you always have to look at what was it that they were really trying to accomplish they were not trying to accomplish building. And a successful impeachment case against Trump. What they wanted to do was accomplished, branding him as the first president in American history to be impeached, twice which it was within their power to do. But as the prosecutor who used to Design prosecutions that were designed to win jury trials. What I would say is that if you really wanted to win this case, what you would have done is make it about The Capitol police officer who was murdered under circumstances where Thea available reporting an evidence indicates that the president was dithering. Watching television in the White House and not acting as commander in chief, resisting requests that he put reinforcements in and military people in argue the case to the jury that when when the officer needed Commander in chief. The president was a wall and then I would straight. I would look at what they were trying to accomplish in terms of preventing the Congress from counting the electoral votes, which is a clear undermining of little procedure and then another stuff, another speech and all that..

"Baxter. This is the John Baxter Show. I welcome Bill MacArthur. William McGurn, writing Main Street. He's a member of the editorial board of The Wall Street Journal. Bill takes us to a moment in time when Hillary Clinton running for the presidency, this is 2016 made a remark that's now remembered. Grimly about the deplorables the deplorables. However, there was more to Secretary Clinton's remarks at the time, and that requires attention. Bill of very good even to in your recent column, you quote The basket of Deplorables line that Mr Trump was very successful in using in his campaign of 2016 to identify Hillary Clinton as either death to or indifferent of Large number of American people who are struggling and who felt marginalized or not heard, however, there was more to her remark. What else did she say that day? About the people who who were supporting her opponent who she wanted to help. Good evening to you, Bill. Hi, John. Will you remember that It was to a fundraiser right of her support supporters And she said, you know, speaking generally. Um about Trump. You know whether whether it's racism. Xenophobia is, um, almost phobia. Whatever Islamophobia. You'd have to put half of them into what I call a basket of deplorables. So, of course, that deadline is stuck with done, Mrs Clinton. But what's interesting to me is that she limit herself to saying only half and she went on to say that the other half Implying that they were decent, hard working people are people who have kind of lost her their faith. The government's looking out for them apprehensive about their future and most important, she said. These were people whose concerns have to be understood. And empathized with and that's of course, completely forgotten today, But I think in today's climate where the effort is to take the worst of what we saw on Wednesday at the Capitol and say this Is Donald Trump supporters. This is the 74 million. You know, the guy with the painted face and the Deer Fernald. Some of the other crazies that went up there and committed violence. I think even Mrs Clinton saw that wasn't true in 2016 there Woz unacceptable behavior at the Capitol. And it was not authored by the Republican Party. And yet, bill What we see today is a well the word has been used by your editorial boards while use it safely purge. There's a perch underway. The Republican Party of conservatives whether they are or not, Republicans, even of libertarians, and especially of dissenters, a perch underway. Mrs Clinton did not intend that as government In 2016. So the puzzle here turn of the screw. Just Joe Biden intend that in 2021. He's taking the oath of office next week. Will he stop the purge? Well, in principle he should he promised quite rightly. After the election of hard fought and bitter election, he promised the president for all people, including those who didn't vote for Kevin. It's time to start stop treating our political foes as our enemies. They're just opponents and called for healing immunity. Unfortunately, those are nice words. But he hasn't backed them up with anything. I mean, it seems to me that this would be a time for Joe Biden to try to put the brakes on all these activities going on. You have the Democrats trying to impeach Trump the day before he leaves. You got the Republicans and the Lincoln Project trying to put together black list of anyone. Who worked for him. I think Joe Biden haven't won the election and having talked about healing. He's in a unique position to kind of put the brake on some of this stuff and say, Look, we're better than this, and we need to be moving ahead instead of re fighting all the grudges of left four years, which is a puzzle. Because Mrs Pelosi, speaker of the House has to my knowledge at this moment on the eve of said that she's going ahead with an impeachment vote. Other voices have been raised that they sent it will reconvene on the 19th. And that the Senate may call the trial at some point in future, too, impeached and removed from office. A man who is no longer in office. I understand their constitutional grounds grounds for this. However, Joe Biden has not moved Bill. It's impossible for me to imagine a Republican president who wouldn't have the power to order his own speaker of the House to stop the turmoil. Now, Joe Biden has that power. Or is this some kind of good cop? Bad cop game? He sounds ameliorated, but he lets Mrs Pelosi attack My fear is that what we're seeing now is this is going to be the pattern for the next two years. I mean, Joe Biden actually doesn't have the direct authority that Congress is a separate branch of government. Mrs. Pelosi doesn't work for him. But as the president and the leader of his party, he has an enormous influence on which direction the party goes. And I think if there any more sensible heads out the Democratic Party that I mean, there's some that have spoken out Joe Manchin. I think Tom Daschle today as it his warnings about impeachment. It would give lesser known people some cover if they were agreeing with the president, But I hate to say it. I'm not sure there's anything in Joe Biden's life. That shows he's willing to stand up to people in his own party and stand up for something you know when it's really tough. She'll say the words like a lot of senators well, but I don't see any evidence. He's going to do anything to try to make those words real for millions of people out there who think they're still regarded as deplorables and that people are trying to take away their voice. You know whether it's Twitter drive them out of politics. And in general, render them unfit for polite society. There. Denunciations underway Bill and you highlight one particular denunciation in your column. This is I statement that you tell me went out on the common actual college application people. You can you fill out one happen? It goes too many universities so you don't have to do individually that The way it was back in the 20th century, But I won't read the document of them to say it's a politic. It's a It's a political jeremiad, denouncing the people who attended the rally on January 6 without evidence. It is surprising to me. That this is available Bill. There it is. It's it's like it's nothing but provocation and her and promising worse ahead. What it is his gas on the fire and what's amazing to me is I don't think it's any worse than many other statements. I've I've seen her. But it's a very politicized Stephen and it went out to probably more than a million kids. I think it's something like 1.2 Million American kids use the common app each year, so they got this screen. In their mouth in this supposedly a political institution, and that's I think another thing. A lot of people see around them. Trump voters see everything has been politicized. Not just the press, not just the Leaders in Congress, but everything I'm around them. It seems like all these institutions are signing up for the resistance. It's very dispiriting and fundamental to my understanding of where we are. Bill is that There has been no resolution on the falsehood that smeared Donald Trump in 2016 and lead to questions raised about his legitimacy all during his term. There's no answer..

"It does look like back to the future. Um, you know, many of them were quote off guard because of the tremendous deals the Abraham accords. Morocco Embassy likely toe open Saudi Arabia dealing to buck rain and I overflights by the way, allowing all flights for Israel. Um, the Moroccan Islamist even supported the recognition deal many things and and there's talk of other countries other ways. Everything's changed, but Europe, right? You know the Europeans, though we're left out. They were because they had done nothing to contribute to the process. And if anything often were obstacles. So now they're trying to reintroduce themselves into this. And Jordan and Egypt, which also feel that they've been eclipsed by the Abram records, by the way, sort of maybe others. Now this is an opportunity for them also to to get back into the game into play a role. So it's you know, everybody has their own agenda, their own specific purposes in and you know, there's no sign that there is a new opening. The Palestinian that made the man to the administration Incoming administration said that they will reopen their presence in Washington. They will do other Concessions. And yet we've seen nothing coming from there. They would indicate that there really ready to make to make a change and to negotiate and basis for serious understanding. The options are there if they're ready to take them, that is Well. Iran is busy worrying about enriching uranium. Are they worried about vaccine there People against covered 19. Malcolm's not enough to take vaccines in the United States in the U. K and announcing that they Would not, They would ban imports of covert vaccines and now later, I understand that they've talked about taking over from India, China and Russia. They were some unnamed U. S philanthropists and arrange for the distribution of 150,000 of the visor vaccine in Iran, and it was canceled after Khamenei's announcement, not by the donor, but by the By the Iranians. E mean, it doesn't make any sense. No, is covert a serious challenge inside Iran. Yes, And yet it shows that they are always willing to sacrifice the interests of the people for their political goals. Puzzle. Malcolm about the Iran reporting you're doing right now. This is not a sharp changes it Malcolm. They have been resistant and defiant through the Trump administration. What's your painting is a picture in which that's going to continue in the Biden administration. It will, but what they do is they test and they're going to test the new administration. Just they test that past administrations. All of these groups test that terrorists especially an extremist test to see the limits, and if they run up against real opposition and resistance, they back off, and then they will try again, and they look for vulnerability and openings to do And so they will. Make these maximalist demands as we see Iran doing now, and I hope that the will be able to get some concessions from the administration Incoming, which wants to see the continuation of the JCP away. That is Helped Malcolm with C continuation, the JCP away. What can they possibly offer to Iran to get them to behave to me? Haven't they given them the store already? Well, no and there is, you know, we are holding munni of theirs. We There are other things that they want, certainly, but I'm not sure I don't think that that's the intent. Administration is given stuff. It is to restore the deal and come to say that they have to live up to their commitments. Come to the JCP away the Iranians on them and they're saying no. We want all the sanctions removed. We want compensation for the sanctions. The cost that the sanctions Took from us economically and otherwise. And at the same time they're humiliating us wherever they can, and is the front story on Tehran Times today is about you know, mocking the American troops that suffered because of the explosions when Iran launched his ballistic missiles at our base in in Iraq after the saloon, Mani assassination, and they launched these huge rockets and with £1600 explosives. And they destroyed people's hearings, and people reported that they still have nightmares, etcetera, and they put this on the front page how they mocked them and saying they're still paying the price and making front front of the suffering. About troops so that their interests are very clear, and that is only about Iran's aggressive goals in the region and beyond the region. We see their activities still in South America and everywhere else. On it should not be taken lightly. Hamas, Malcolm, you You have not reported on them for some weeks, and now I have this report that they're destroying houses in Egypt. Why are they doing that? I wasn't I wasn't ignoring them but only Egyptian border on the Gaza side of the Egyptian border. They destroyed the homes off 23 families, Palestinian families who live in Gaza. Because they want to expand the Rapa crossing, which means that they're looking for expanded commercial dealings via the crossing and with Egypt. And there were protests and significant protests and they arrested nine people in the process. They too have to come to terms with some of the changes to deal that Qatar and the Saudis the reconcile ng, at least in part All of these have ramifications for support that Hamas gets and the Palestinians get, and they are always looking and looking to position themselves here.

"I'm John Baxter. This is the John Baxter show. Simon Sebag. Montefiore is the author of a new book, A massive telling of the Romanovs, the Romanovs. The family that dominated Russia, Russia that we see now the imperial power wanting to return to those era imperial power. That's the same Russia we see in the 17th century. And we have to quickly now there's backstory. There's always backstory in Russia, Michael the 1st 16 13 to 16 45 is a boy child when he's awakened in March of 16 13. What is the threat to him at this point, and then we'll go on to the threat to the Peter in the 17th century. Help me, Simon. Yes, well, this is the beginning of the Romanov dynasty in the Roman also risen, risen to prominence when Ivan the Terrible married his first wife was a Roman off on And he loved her. And so they were kind of into married and they married into the family of the ruling dynasty. And when they do this, there was extinct. Russia dissolved and became a failing state invaded on every side by On foreign power. Sweden, Poland and so on on and They looked for a new, fresh, untainted young young czar, and they found him in Mike, One of the family, the Romanov family. Of course, the invaders immediately wanted to kill him. So so hit squads were sent by the polls in the Swedes to find his boy and kill him. But meanwhile, the boy I knew nothing about this. He was hiding in a monastery in the countryside. One day he was awakened, as you said on when he came out with his mother, the that the whole of Moscow's great and good was standing there and they fell to their knees. They kiss the floor and they hailed him a czar. And he burst into tears because Hey, he didn't wanna bees. All I know wanted to bees on that point. In fact, many dollars have been killed. There were many pretenders claiming to bizarre It was it was. It was total chaos and no one wanted this job at that point. So he actually resisted taking the job, But in the end, he was virtually forced to take it on. And he very successfully somehow with the with the assistance of top boils and generals. He restored autocracy and that began to re conquer and then expand the empire. And, you know, the Romanoff would become probably the most successful dynasty of modern times. We have a son, Alexey, who's successful as well and marries twice, Mila loss, Kaya and now rush Kina. And these are the two mothers that go in different directions were going very quickly now because we want to get to Peter The first Peter, however, how he's will will have an older And rival half sister Sophia, whom he has to be very careful about. She rules from 16 82 to 6 to 16 89. She's not eight. Serena. She's not an Empress. She's just in charge of everything. He has a half brothers. Well, Ivan the fifth who is feeble minded, I'm concentrating on Peter here, Peter Right away the way you present him, Simon. Prepares himself to beat Sardo. I read that correctly and his even in his games, he constructs battalions. Yes, I mean, everything. Everything about Peter. The great is extraordinary. Everything is larger than life. Everything is a visionary and brilliant And yet everything is terrifying and dark about him as well. He's One of those politicians who from a young age knows what he wants to do understands what needs to be done to make it happen and then have the cumin. Make it happen. So those sort of you know those three things you need the politician. He has ALS three. Unfortunately, he manages to find the resources to do these things and basically The first thing he wants to do from from his young youngest childhood is to be a great general and for Russia to be a great military and naval power, so he builds a new Russian navy and he learned modern warfare from the West. And he promotes Western technology Western generals. He loves Western girls, a lot of Dutch bear and German girls, and he spent all his time with Westerners and Have you in Russia with reformers? What is really about is the reformer really is not trying to introduce Western democracy in which in any that value in any case didn't exist. What they're trying to get his Western technology, Western guns and ships to use against the West to promote Russia and Peter does that, but he does it with despotism with cruelty with dynamism. Hey, anyone who crosses him two of his uncles. He taught us to death when the security matters to be looked into. He handles the torturing himself. He's absolutely ruthless. He When there's a rebellion against him. He beheads the man himself. Even when one of his ex mistresses is arrested, he handled the execution. He walked into the execution on then, when she's dead, he lives up ahead and kisses it and gives an anatomy lesson to the crowd.
