"Two five to two aides, Dr drew. With leeann tweeden and you can get it right. Can and we're about to into a topic that both man and I are fascinated by those the tariff issue in this country or casts senior fellow at the Manhattan is follow him at Oran, cast or s SS dot com or involved with the program. Thanks for having me. So. We I think we all sort of gotten our head around what the purpose of the terrorists with the Chinese, and that this had gone onto long and eventually, we had to do something, and there might be some short term or even intermediate term pain, but it was well worth it. I guess the first question would be to agree with that. But the real question I want to get to is does that then translate into using tariffs as a way of forcing policy, which seems to be what's going on with Mexico? Well, I think the Mexico example is, is really helpful because really, that's what it was with China, also it was trying to force a change in policy. And you know, there, there are two ways to think of tariffs, one is that we think that the tariff is actually going to work that by putting the tariff in place. Something good will happen. And the other is to think of the tariff is a weapon that we know a tariff, hurt them. We know a tariff, hurts us, but we think it hurts them more and it's a way to get what we want. And in both the China case and the Mexico case. That's what we've been doing is we've been using the tariff has a weapon. It's just much more obvious in the Mexico case because we're not even talking about trade with Mexico. It it doesn't even seem related. It's just something we can do to, to try to get what we want has Mexico signed onto the treaty with candidate in the US. So the, the countries have agreed to agree. Yeah. To the terms, but then each country has to ratify it. So, for instance, congress would have to vote on it here in the US. And so the new be what's called do NAFTA has not been ratified by anyone. Honestly, I don't know about Canada and Mexico. I think Canada did. That's what I wonder if they're going to use this, try to get Mexico to move along with that, too. But that's kind of interesting because then he can go to congress. Go look Canada, Mexico. They've agreed. Let's go. But be that as it may do you think this is gonna work? I was looking at the tariff schedule, and it's very aggressive by Tober. We're like twenty five percent. It's, it's extremely aggressive, and it's, it's something that's going to cause a lot of pain on both sides. You know, one of the things about China that, that gave us a certain amount of leverage was that because of the very imbalanced trade, we have with China, China relies on us to buy a tremendous amount of stuff from them. They don't really buy anything from us. It's a very one way relationship, and that's sort of what we were trying to fix. And so while while while tariffs or a broader trade war with China, you know, definitely causes some short term pain for certain industries, certainly it has potential to raise the prices of some products. I think a lot of folks, whether they supported or not would agree. It's, it's probably something that, that really does hurt the Chinese more than it hurts us with Mexico. That's much less clear we even on, you know, our strongest domestic industries are automakers rely on normally on products that go back and forth across the border with Mexico numerous times. We have a tremendous amount of trade in all in every category, going back and forth with Mexico. And so the, the potential disruption from from really saying, you know, we're gonna start a trade war. Here has the potential to be enormous. I think it's, it's almost better thought of kind of, in a military context. It's, it's, it's, it's an. Credibly disruptive explosive thing that, that we can threaten. But it it's going to do a lot of damage. You know, probably the only the only difference is it doesn't necessarily cost lives. Do you think that what the president is, maybe trying to do with this is because congress is not moving on any sort of legislation to change anything at the border with laws or you know how they can come and claim asylum, and he's just sort of fed up with that, that may be doing this, and sort of putting a lot of pressure on Mexico, which he's tried to do before and saying that they should solve a lot of the caravans from even starting at the bottom of their country from coming up and putting pressure on them. Obviously, the left doesn't like it a lot of people on the right or pushing back on this with Mexico. Do you think that this is going to get the attention that maybe congress will act on some of the laws that he wants changed at the border ask on the on the same in the same exact frame or are there things they can do to interfere with what he wants to do here? Well, I think that's a great point. Is that it's not just a threat to, to Mexico? It's kind of a threat to congress as well. Yes. And, and this is, you know, I think there were periods in the last year or two where people felt the Trump administration would say it's a crisis at the border. And a lot of people would say, well, you know, the data doesn't really support that I think it's important emphasized that at this point, everyone across the political crisis. Agreed there's an unprecedented crisis. The, the data on the quantity of people the number of families with young children. It really isn't extraordinary situation, and one that our laws are not equipping the government to, to handle. Right. And so there, there's bull. The problem that you have to there has to be more done before. Everybody shows up at the border, but then we also have to have better ways to deal with people who do show up at the border. Right. And, and so both getting congress to act and getting Mexico, Dr important to be honest. It's, it's not clear to me that, that tariffs are. They call attention to it. It, it doesn't seem like the right leverage over congress. It seems like it's going to have to be more about compromise. If congress response on the tariffs with their most likely to do is just take away the president's power to impose tariffs. That's, that's their response. There. And I think we all have to realise, right. I think the number one job of the president, here is to be a leader. And I think the problem is with with Trump with all due respect to, you know, being our president is that he's not really good at coming reaching across the table, and, and look, and this atmosphere, the left and the right. Hate each other, especially in Washington. Nobody wants to come together. And if you if you're seeing trying to work with each other, you're a traitor to your party and this kind of climate right now. I think both sides realize that there's a problem. The American public realizes there's a problem. There is a crisis at the border something needs about whatever it is something needs to be done. And nobody wants to do it. And then here's President Trump wanting to do these tariffs in sort of third backhanded way to punish Mexico for not doing anything when our laws need to be changed congress, and the president need to get together and sit in a room not getting a room and get mad because somebody called him a name in them walk out. You have to sit down and negotiate and you have to come to. Something. I'm sorry. It's just what your this is y'all's job, and quite frankly me, and I think the American people are fed up with it something has to be done. Do your job. Please. I certainly agree with that. I think it's, it's. Mm in parceling out blame. I think certainly there's some that, that, that have to go to President Trump for obviously not being ineffective leader who can bring anyone together on, on this, or, or maybe Eddie topic. Some has to go to Republicans who for the first two years of the Trump administration controlled the house, and the president read and it, and it wasn't until they lost the house that they all of a sudden turned around and said, well now we're, we're gonna sort of pretend to get serious about this agreed agreed. But, but then I, you know, at the end of the day, they, there's a really core philosophical question here about whether America has the right and duty to protect its border, and exclude people from entering, and that's where the Democrats walkway from the table. And if we can't get a broad bipartisan agreement on in this country that we like immigration, we want immigrants, but we also have to set some number, and we have to agree that once you get that, that, if you are not part of that number, you cannot enter. And if you try to enter we. We are going to send you back that has to be part of the picture. And. Being enforced. That's right. Can we start with that? Protests to abolish ice altogether. Of course, they're already doing that. Hello, people sitting in congress, I want that. So, so I think that has to be step one, that until the until the, the left side of the spectrum is willing to agree with, at least the principle that at that. There is going to be a number. And people are not in that number are cannot comment are going to get sent home if you can agree to that, and there's all sorts of room for compromise. There's a lot of common sense solutions. But if you can't agree to that, and I don't know how a crisis, it's gonna take before everyone's willing to admit that. Yeah. That, that has to be the starting point if, if you're going to be a country. I mean over the last couple of weeks. I don't know if anybody knows in California. I'm sure San Bernardino knows that ISIS been Salman, the border patrol has been sending busloads of people from Texas and dumping them here in San Bernardino, because they're overloaded in Texas at their border. They can't handle them anymore so quietly throughout the night, like three or four times a day busloads of people have been emptied in San Bernardino at a gray. Station. So we are getting them in California. Now, we're talking to Oran casts senior fellow at the Manhattan institute. I want to get back to tariffs, if we can. So let's just look at the effect of the tariffs of the stock market and seems to be been up last night. Mostly up on hopes for the fed. Yeah. Yeah. Move because labor market is starting to fall bit. Does any of this have to do with the tariffs? That's a tough question. I think it's it, it is hard to look at the, the day to day movements in the stock market and, and really be able to learn anything about public policy from them. I think you, can, you can pick whichever policies you want and say, well, when when the market goes up because because of the policies, I like and when it goes down because of the policies, I don't like in the long run, if we did have significant tariffs with China with Mexico. One of the effects of that is going to be to affect corporate profits. And at the end of the day stock prices are worth what they are based on how much profit companies are going to earn. So if, if we're going to have more tariffs than, than certainly in the short to medium term, you would expect that to affect profits, and therefore, maybe, maybe if it may be balanced against the piracy, and all the other issues that these corporations are dealing with. Well, that that's, that's very important to emphasize, and that's why I said, sort of, in the short to medium term, because in the long term the reason to care about this stuff and pick these fights with, with China, is that the, the imbalance that we have in our economy has has just put us on the worst trajectory the, the industries and businesses we have the investments, we make. Exactly. And, and, you know, I think the, the terminology, they sort of have hollowed out significant parts of the economy and know in the short run there a real cost about associated with responding to that in the long run. And you know, it's, it's not necessarily the same companies that make the most money, offshoring everything to China that are going to make the most money..

"Daylight. Leeann tweeden, Dr drew eight hundred two to five to two the phone number. We got a lot to get into today. We are going to talk about, oh, prescribing pot to pets. We're going to talk about that for my dog food for homeless and, and bought this hour, we're going to get to the LA, please protectively to talk about the typhoid fever outbreak. And the. Imaginatively insane conditions that the police are dealing with right now right now. Let's go to Jill. Stuart executive director of the coalition to preserve LA, Senate Bill three thirty sibling Bill to b fifty Jill. What is it issue here with this Bill? Well, okay. This is another crazy Bill out of the bay area that they want to impose on the entire state because hampered Cisco has a problem and SP fifty will undo all city housing reforms, including in Los Angeles, that weren't in effect by January first of last year. What that means is Airbnb crackdown will be thrown out, the, the south boss. Angelo community plan, which figured out a way to create density, while saving south LA from gentrification and homeless surging homelessness by forcing people out of their homes, all these plans at the south LA communities have been working on a decade, the gotta prove thrown out by this law. So another one insane laws out of the bay area that's going to hurt Los Angeles more than any other city. It has nothing to do with L A doesn't in any way, take into account. What we're doing in this city. And a lot of a lot of cities are going to be screwed by. It's the most interesting part is coming out now, breaking right now in San Francisco in the media up, there is that the driving money behind. Senate Bill three thirty end Senate Bill fifty secret creepy money is from Facebook. Yeah. The motivation. What's the motivation growth? He he needs way. More housing units. If he's going to take over the, the San Francisco peninsula in a more complete way, there's not enough housing. Just go to the city council and mayor's office and work through the local measures. They want all of the cities. They want to do a regional thing and to do a regional thing they're proposing statewide legislation. They, they need the whole area to be up sewn for, for his dream his dream for what for people to actually work in the offices are just people in the area. Understand they want way more check population. They want in other words right now they have a lot of density. They want it to be more like a Hong Kong or Singapore situation where you have far far more density, mostly single unit to bring in it's, it's, it's really it's really it's a corporate craziness. I can't even imagine how they got this far without about. But it's, it's amazing what the break is out of San Francisco. Joel Stewart, executive director of the coalition to preserve LA. What? Okay, so that sucker birds motivation. I guess the politicians wants money is Weiner involved in the Scott Weiner, Scott, wieners involved, and Nancy Skinner is, she's kind of the acolyte of Scott Weiner she's behind S b three thirty. She wrote it, and yeah. Absolutely. The money is flowing in from this LLC that book created private that you can't find out much information about it. He and his wife put it together. They said they were going to try to help people stay in their communities and help housing. And if you if you look at it, it's the exact opposite. It's about having as much giant stuff come in as possible, and just pushing people aside. So it's, it's really you know, we were wondering why the legislative analysis of SP three thirty was so thin. It's very thin. And it's very vague and that's not normal for legislative analysis. What turns out the state of California has got some contracts with the very people that, that is financed, or create the fake data. So it's really if all of the money came. Yeah. So if he. You were if he were to come to me and say, I'm looking for funds to support this plan. How do you think he'd pitched me he being burger? Or that organization. What, what are they telling people that are piling into their program that they're doing? I mean what did they get, you know again, it sounds weird his motivation. But okay, I'll accept that. But what does the average San Franciscan doing this for why? Would they get this kind of a fund completely buying into the trickle down teary, if you build enough luxury housing was trickle down to the working class and help the homeless never heard that I've known as ever proposed that, that I've heard publicly? So I it's hard to all over Sacramento, every, we've we met was probably twenty five legislators out there or their aides, and the new thing that swept through in the last year is trickled down housing it's going to just build as much what they call, it is build housing for all levels, and then it will help everyone, but what they actually end up doing these bills is almost all focused on luxury. Right. And, and for for all of this here because there's no, it seems like no city is going to have the power to have a general plan to sort of oversee, how communities are changed by this at all. Seems like private investors, and private builders are going to be able to come in build all these high rises, and let's face it, if you're a private builder when you build these high rises, what do you win it for your for money. You're not going to build low cost anything, especially in a place like San Francisco or Los Angeles. You're not going to go, oh, my bleeding, heart. I want to build low cost because I want to make an apartment for five hundred dollars a month for people to live in. No. You're going to try to make forty five hundred dollar because you're. Legitimately. I. Listen for the standpoint of the kinds of intervention that I'm used to government engage. Again, the idea that they want to use market forces to great more housing is refreshing. So what they wanna do is flood the market with supply of housing to drive. How prices down just letting private contractors go them having any oversight of scary advocate. I'm just saying that this is a market in invention which is flooded with product. So the price comes down, okay. The hope they'd want to do it on a local or try, try it out somewhere before the entire states. To try it out. Seattle is the first to go with it in a big way I'm from Seattle. It's a small city compared to LA built twenty three thousand units in one year. How did that work out? Well, let's went down two dollars a month. Unaffordable and it's so now what you've got is major scholars like UCLA's. Michael store is doing a livestream tonight explaining why trickle down does not work in the housing market. It works in plenty of markets. Like if you're selling vegetables doesn't work at all in the housing market, because their silos and people don't buy up that way rental. And it doesn't work. It just doesn't work. It's never worked. It's just the s. So there's a bunch of scholars now, stepping forward to say whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, let's re guys are off on the wrong direction. So we're glad to see that. So we're going to be involved in promoting that Holt lives joining tonight, which is also out of another thing coming out of San Francisco, but he's with London School economics and UCLA Michael. And when he came out because he doesn't meddle around in legislative. He's big picture global issues, but he felt he had to step in because Sacramento's gone insane over this now. We know that part of that is because of money just carries the twenty three thousand twenty three thousand units. I think he's ever built in in Seattle. I'm are they full are they sitting empty what's happening with them? Filled up fairly quickly with because they've got a big huge tech surge going on there. I don't know. I don't know if they have a big vacancy rate like Los Angeles does rights. Not. They're not lower costs like people thought they were going to be. It's just full of people paying exorbitant fees or of it's affordable count, right? Yeah. Yeah. Joel Stewart, executive director of the colours to preserve LA. This is Kathy Kathy. Go ahead. To comment or two questions. How is this, not a US attorney issue? This sounds like racketeering, from the bottom up and the top. Yes. Yes. In the second thing is Gavin Newsom, Mr. L A, and now he's, Mr. California, and so he doesn't remember Los Angeles because it sounds like it's going to impact you guys considerably. And then the last comic because I'm the other one. All of these tech giants Google Facebook the whole bit. They've all been deified they can do wrong. And now and now you know their spot. And they can't be controlled. They can't be controlled seriously. One man can't be controlled. Five men can't be controlled. I don't even know if he's a man. He's a robot. Era, where we used to say Ma Belle, she doesn't care because she doesn't have to, and then they broke up AT and T because it was too big. And it was too powerful control. Too many lives and eventually. Kathy. The our politicians in Sacramento are interested in the money for these. These contracts contracts. Porn dough into these people's, of course, they're going along with that. Can we stop money going to politicians? No, I'm serious. Stop a lot of exits crowds. Listen, let's just let's just stop people from dying in the streets here trying to right now. Because we are having Jill terms of preserving LA. There may not be anybody here alive in LA of this epidemic. It's going the way I think it could. Well, did you hear about the numbers the numbers that are going to come out in the next few days on the new homeless can have you got the count already? But we know it's going to surge leave. We understand. It's gonna be way high. Here's joe. Here. Help me help me my campaign. Please got helped me so we now have all three major means whereby factious diseases are spread into populations are, are blossoming. We have to Berkeley, markedly increasing rapidly here we now have today, an episode of typhoid fever, which means it Colorado's coming soon, which is the water FICO born with police officers in downtown, we have we've had the vector-borne the typhus, and we've talked to a play good days of the plague is now here, and we'll be into the human population soon. So we have vector rodent and vermin. We have airborne, and we have water oral fecal born this, plus we have measles, if it breaks into that population that's been optimally immunized, we are going to have like they're going to be I have an image of him stand on my knees and the curve attending to people because that's how bad this is going to get.

He is a navy seal, who served for thirteen years, and then went onto a he is, now has a career consulting acting in Hollywood. Then at twelve thirty five are going to be talked to assemblyman, Jim Patterson on the debacle the DMV with all of our real ideas. And also the debacle at the high speed rail, which is costing us billions and billions of dollars and the federal government's taking that money back shocker. The project was not going to be on time or what they said it was going as high speed rail from LA to San Francisco high speed rail wasn't from LA to San Francisco was from west go tumor said, not even Bakersfield westcote. Yes. And then we're going to have Mike Baker, former say covert operative, and president of diligence LLC talking about Iran one thirty five rabbi Judy Greenfeld on synagogue security, and right now, let's get to our I guess who is actually here in studio with us. Former navy seal Remmy on a lake gay me. How are you? I love that handshake. When you came in I said, oh, yeah. This guy is a navy seal, so former navy seal, now transitioning to the Hollywood, a side of things, which a lot of my friends, former military have done that consulting acting doing a little bit of that. Can you I just go back? You also have a book out. You can tell us about the book as well. Tell us your story of how you, you're born in Nigeria and to, to Royal family. But how did you make it to American? How did you become a navy seal? So my dad, he was a well known Niger at engineered chief in the Uraba tribe in one thousand nine hundred seven Nigerian government stripped, our family of absolutely everything, and my dad died days later. So we went from very rich to very poor and my mom, she with American. So there was no way she's gonna keep us in Africa. So she permanently relocated this to the Bronx grew up big gotten a lot of trouble drugs, hustling, all kinds of different games. And by the time I was nineteen had this crazy, legal enterprise, but I got involved in a deal with a drug dealer. That went bad. And that was my wakeup call. Eventually led me to go. Join a navy. My life was threatened undoing when it kind of living life anymore. So a real up call wake call you getting by selling drugs, and fake sneakers. Frogs cell phones anything that. Fell off the back of the truck. Yet, and that was my wakeup call. Eventually led me to recruit his office. But when I got there to recruit, my background found out, I had to Warsaw from arrest at a warned jersey warned New York. But she so, don't you have to get a little waiver or something for that to get into the military little more than that? She had to take two judges. I give my record expunged. And then and then she, she fudged my paperwork to kind of sneak into the navy under at a table, and she died for us after doing that. But I'll tell you that, that one act changes trajectory of our life. She saw something you, she's so potential potential and that's important though. Right. I mean for anybody in life for just one person to see potential in somebody into kind of show you the light and say while somebody believes in me. Right. So when you join the navy, I mean, obviously, a lot of people joined the navy, but not everybody can be a navy seal. When did you think? Yeah, man, I can do that. And go through bugs think they can do it. I've seen a lot of those, you know, the documentaries on buds and stuff, and a lot of people ring that damn bell, and then put down there. You know, the, the hat or the helmet. Yeah. So what, what, what made you think you could do it? He always had this fire me. Anytime put my mind to it. I just get after it. And I once I seal and did a presentation of boot camp was seals do. And I saw that video, and I was like I don't care what happens even though I can't swim. I don't have academic scores. And I'm skinny figure it out and a year later, I figured it out and got accepted into the program, but it just took a lot of hard work, and they were just go really well from the beginning. No. That seen the swimming stuff where they tie your hands and your feet and you gotta go down, and like come back with that not terrifying. It was horrible.

Like to showing, like grit, right? Like just showing up is half of the battle, right? Physically you've probably can do a lot of things mentally. It's like just keep showing up to keep putting down every factor in life. If you can get back up again, rise from it all right? Guys all every single person who shows up to the program physically, they have what it takes.

Appreciate it and your, your publicist here. Thank you, her husband, and son, also served, both army, thank you for your sacrifices. Well parents and loved ones and the people that stay home holding down the fort. Thank you. What would you tell people, you know, about military life and about, you know, because sometimes, I think out there, there are a lot of these misconceptions that military man, because, you know, we do see a lot of the we have to help our veterans a lot of PTSD or they're, they're broken and somewhat. And, you know, even the ones that I do go see in hospitals that, that have become an petits or have PTSD your TB, or whatever they're like, you know, I don't want people to see his broken. We're not broken still warriors. And so what do you want people to know about military people and men and women out there that serve, you know, I think you hit hit it right on the head. You know, we're not victims went on victims, you know. Yes, we've been through some things, but, you know, those things that we've been through, they made a stronger you know. And, and, you know there are a lot of life experiences that we gain from going overseas and maybe the person doesn't even go overseas. Maybe if they just stay local this, so many life experiences that you learn about leadership communication, mental tough. Kness critical thinking, and those things are very valuable and we could use those things and apply them in, in the business sector on Hollywood on other areas. So again, you know my big thing is we're not victims..

"With leeann tweeden, and you can get it. Right. Has been shown any fall, Bobby Bobby Chak own FBI's Emory handle, right? Yeah. We're going to speak now to Davies columnist and author Gordon Chang. This is about Mr. Trump proposed increase in tariffs with China Gordon in the program. Thank you so much. So the stock market obviously, reacted negatively yet seemed to have recovered from its shock at him wanted increased Harris. And while he was Trump seems to be making the case that tariffs is improving. Our say the financial situation in in Washington. The reality is doesn't the consumer pay for all this the consumer pays part of it? Because the Trump administration pose the first tariffs chose wisely. Basically China's absorbed about eighty percent of the cost. But with additional terrorists the ones that President Trump talked about in his tweet yesterday. Therefore, the the percentage that the United States will absorb we'll be much higher. Why's that? Well, because I chose products where there was basically China realize if it didn't absorb the tariffs would lose market share. Now, you know with the other products, it's going to have the little bit more pain for the American consumer which ones are being I read what what it is. He's going after I think that it's a lot of the tech products. We're in the initial round of tariffs, and those were the United States, you know, basically sought that Chinese producers would have no choice, but to bear most of the cost and that has been proven by number of studies, which showed that essentially the Chinese have absorbed tariff costs and tell me a little bit more about how the Chinese leadership. Understands what's happening to them. I thought they are a lot of. Shame avoidance in other words, losing face by letting the economy start to grow less robustly is a big deal to them. How how do they look at this? I think they look at it primarily as economic warfare. Chinese leaders have worked very hard undermine the US economy. There's been decades of trade predation. So there have been a number of violations and serious filings of their trade obligations, including those that they made when they joined the World Trade Organization at the end of two thousand one. So for instance, they were supposed to allow US credit card companies into Chinese market by two thousand six American credit card issuers have not issued a single credit card to this very day. So it's it shows that for number of reasons China has not honoured trade trade allegations. But the most important thing Dr drew is. China stepped of US intellectual property, which is estimated anywhere between one hundred fifty to six hundred billion dollars a year, and that is a grievous wound to the US economy. Speaking Daily Beast columnist and author Gordon Chang is is that going to be corrected, and we think. That's a great question. And that is the critical question. President Trump talks about trade bows. He doesn't talk about intellectual property as much and Neil various reporting. Specially from the financial times would indicate that the potential trade deal that is on the table wouldn't do much on sept- of US IP. However, perhaps in many of these reports have not really been accurate, and it's been very hard to figure out exactly what the state of play is. So for instance, US markets and other markets have not taken into account. I think the political factors that have been pushing China and the US not to come to terms on a trade deal. There's been a lot of optimism that optimism has been fed by Treasury Secretary, Steve Mnuchin and his comments to the public. But it seems that there's a lot of disagreements still, and that's why we had President Trump's tweet yesterday which indigo. Gated real frustration with Chinese attempts to renegotiate concessions that already given to the US. And of course, the president was not very happy with that development. So how do you win a trade war was with somebody like to China? Another great question. And the point is that this is going to be very difficult for the United States. We're going to have to bear a lot of costs. But when you look at for instance, the IP theft alone, the US has got to do something because we have an innovation based economy, increasingly so, and if we can't protect our innovation. We don't have an economy of the future. So this is gonna cost us, and we Americans should understand that you can't run decades of misguided trade policy and expect to be able to come out of it without bearing a substantial amount of pain. Meaning what what does that look like? It looks like for instance, less trade with China. I think that we probably will see some disengagement, which we will see companies move parts of their supply chain away from Chinese soil and other places, but some manufacturing we'll come back to the US for various reasons, and especially as they perceive that the disagreements between the US and China are not gonna go away. Even if there is a trade deal. I think you'll find a number of companies actually continuing this process of putting their supply chains elsewhere to insulate themselves from political risk sounds more like a painful transition, but a transition that's healthy necessarily necessary. I'm on my wrong. You're not wrong at all. This is something that the United States is going to have to do from a number of different perspectives. But I think we will come out of it better. Because there is a real sense that trade policy is not benefited many Americans over the last two decades. My goodness. Yes. Isn't that what Trump really the inherent unfairness to the American worker, but the American consumer with relation to with respect to these trade policies. Well, the American consumers done very well through trade policies. It's the American worker that has been a disadvantage, and you know, we talk about Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, three states that Trump won in two thousand sixteen that's largely because the blue collar vote. And if you look at for instance, vice president Biden, he's courting actively that blue-collar vote. So this is a critical segment of the American electorate, and this is where the twenty twenty election. Probably we thought over those states that had traditionally been neglected, but which contain a lot of American workers. I want to ask you this. Because you mentioned Joe Biden the day he made that comment actually a day or two before my old boss director Ray at the FBI came out. With the statement that said, no country poses a broader Morrison veer intelligence collection threat and China at this time, this is before Biden said China's no risk. Casual about it. But what's your take on? When my time in the FBI. I always knew China to be very aggressive adversary in in the world of espionage, and that included corporate espionage and theft of IP and things like that. So how how is this going to square up with the intelligence saying that China is this impending threat with the candidate saying that they're not really bad people? China collect more intelligence from the US than any other country and much of it illegally. China's two thousand seventeen national intelligence law requires every Chinese national organization to spy if demanded and Beijing runs what's called commonly. Theirselves and grains of sand approach, which is to collect information from students business people tourists just about everybody. So clearly they are collecting a lot of stuff from us. You know, what vice president Biden said was there not competition, and that clearly is wrong because China is a competitor one could say, for instance, the US will prevail in this competition. I certainly believe that. But that doesn't mean that they hard competition at all and the other comment that he made which I thought was questionable was saying that Chinese leaders are good folks, that's a long conversation. But I think it can be shown that they certainly are not good, folks. And they don't have. The best interest of the international community at heart. Gordon Chan he is a Daily Beast columnist and author. I wanna go back to the competition. We're having about this transition if the tariff wall, really go up and things supply supply chain start coming stateside, which again sounds like a great thing for the worker and sounds like can be could be really significant not just employment, but even job wage growth. He's this. If there were never a better time to do this are communists so diversified. It's so active, it's growing, they're they're shrinking. They're dependent on us for their growth is isn't this trigger? This is the perfect opportunity to press the advantage. The US economy grew three point two percent in the first quarter of this year. China claim six point four percent, but it was probably more like one or two, and we got to remember we've got a debt problem in our country, but China has a much more severe one they create five and. A half times as much debt as nominal gross domestic product. Even if you believe there inflated GDP numbers that's up from like one and a half times from a year ago. So they have must be really scared right now and one other statistic which need to keep in mind, and that is in two thousand eighteen China's trade merchandise trade surplus with the US was accounted for one hundred twenty nine point six percent of their overall merchandise trade surplus showing overwhelming dependence on the American market, right? Where are that? They were they really need us more than we need them quite little they're they're a luxury to us. Yes. We don't have a trade dependent economy trade, of course, helps us it makes prosperous, but it's not the main basis of the American economy trade is so much more critical to Chinese growth. It always has been and it's continuing to be that way. And especially their growing dependence on American consumers, Gordon, John daily piece columnist and author now that we have not talked about the currency manipulation that at least at the beginning of this war, so called Mr. Trump seem quite exercised about what that was. And why is he stopped talking about it? And they have they reached agreement on that one. They may have reached agreement on it. That's some of the reporting the General Sin has been the China's kept its currency low in order to gain an advantage for his ex exporters and try to did that for decades. But it hasn't been doing it since the middle of two thousand fourteen actually China keeps its currency artificially high. It does that by a strong currency control. Controls also because they they actually go into the market and affect the value of their currency. And so if if the Chinese were allowed to float the Chinese decided to float their currency, it probably would drop precipitously. So I think the President Trump shouldn't talk about currency manipulation because they've been manipulating their currency to the benefit of American manufacturers and workers. This is not the storyline that President Trump wants to talk about. That's why he's I notice it just the that that conversation just ceased about maybe you're a very significant preoccupation yet for a while there. Are there other issues that keep you up at night terms of worrying about this trade war is their way? It could go bad for us any big conflict can go bad for the United States. But we gotta remember that we hold most of the high cards. The only thing that we don't have. Or may not have is political will but apart from that. When you look at all, the objective, economic factors. We are commanding seat. We haven't economy, which is twenty four twenty point four trillion dollars gross domestic product last year, China claimed thirteen point two trillion, and that claim is probably exaggerated. So there's a great disparity. And as I mentioned in reality, we're growing faster than they are. We don't have a trade dependent economy. They do we're growing really really strong right now..

"Welcome back to Dr drew midday live with myself, leeann tweeden, Dr drew is out today. The to my left, I have retired FBI agent. Bob, Chicago and start across from me. Fair minded, civil rights attorney, Leo terell. Howdy. Howdy. Guys. Welcome. Thank you for joining me. And right now, we are going to go out to attorney and journalists crisslow Rahm on how the Wolsey fire response times were hampered by VIP requests. Which is just driving us all crazy here. We've been talking about this since the beginning of the show. Welcome attorney and journalists Chris Legrand. How are you? Chris. Hey, I'm doing great, thanks for having -absolutely. So I think this is something this topic issue. That is now being some light is being shed on this as as piss an awful lot of people frankly pissing me off because I was part of this fire almost lost my house. A lot of my friends actually lost their homes, and my husband is an aerial firefighter with the California Air National Guard. And you know, there's certain ways that that, you know, our fire departments fight these fires and they put their lives at risk and for a politician to go to the top of the fire department and call in a favor and go, hey, can you go check on my house because my house is more important than my neighbor's house or anybody else's house. When the whole freaking state is on fire. Just really just gets goat. What's going on? And what have you found out? Well, so this is a report that apparently was released internally on Monday. And what my sources are telling me is that it was the result of comments that were made a some kind of training. Session earlier this year where the rank and file you know, described their experiences and express their frustration. And so that made it up the chain of command. The report is not made public yet. I do have requests in with a couple of sources, but I did after your producer reached out to me this morning. I reached out to a couple of sources in departments around Los Angeles County, and it seems like this level of political interference like acute political interference is something new. But what I did. Learn is that you know, the the getting preferential treatment is not new an example is they will often hire private firefighting contracting. And protect their specific property. We heard about Kim Kardashian doing that in hidden hills. Carter you exactly that was the example? And the problem there is technically going into evacuation zones. But they're not firefighters are private contractors. Now, some of them are retired by fighters ex guys. I'm not saying that they're not skilled, but what ends up happening is they're competing for precious road space presser shoulder space with emergency apparatus, and that causes problems. It's been raised up the chain of command raise to political leaders and nothing gets done because nobody wants to anger the one percent. I guess. Interesting. So are these are two different issues that we're talking about we're talking about how politicians are calling in favors. They want the fire department while the city's blazing to have them go check on their houses while maybe I don't know they're trying to put out fires and everything else that's going on. And then we have the the second issue, which is something that was new to me. I mean, I didn't even know that this happened until I was reading the tweets and everybody brought it up that Kim Kardashian. I'm so proud of herself that she's like, oh, I hired my own, you know, fire department to fire people to come to our house. And you know, hey, nobody. Nobody's house burned down hidden hills. That's great. So there's two different issues here that the that that LAPD or LAND in some other fire departments around southern California northern California as well are dealing with. That is frustrating to them how they talked about. If are they going to do anything about this? Are they going to do anything about private? Fire departments. Are they going to try to legislator put into laws any sort of new laws that restrict what they do? I mean because obviously if firefighters are having a problem fighting this they're going to have to make changes to the law. You know, unfortunately, I tried to be an optimist. But I think this fire report shows that things are probably trending actually in the opposite direction where politics increasingly is interfering with first responders, and we see it as you suggest the add all over the state. It's it's political leaders calling in favors for you know, wealthier constituents. It's political decision was made, you know, as we've talked about in the past on the show changes to roads impact first responders all the issues and the thing that's so maddeningly because it's not like this is conspiracy theory, everybody sees it happening every single day. And these political decisions these political leaders for whatever reason are putting their own interests, not just ahead of public safety. But but it had life and property. So I don't I don't think there's any anything done in response to this report, unless you know, the media and the public keep up a drumbeat of outrage, which is absolutely justified. Because again, it's it's going to get worse. Lemme ask you this question. Leo terell two questions. One. Do you have any problems obtaining this report through the California Public records act? I mean is there any obstacle as far as you being get this report and to aren't their internal procedures within the fire department that would prohibit such a request from being granted. And if someone was given such a request there's some blow back as far as whistle blower charges being filed against the captain who allowed this to happen. I'm trying to find out the internal procedures within the department that would prevent such a request from being granted and your attempt to obtain. This report you answer those two questions. Yeah. Absolutely. The simple answer to the first question is I fully expect to get a report through. I call the public information to contact there. I don't see any reason why they wouldn't granted on they. They did give a quote to the LA times from the report. I'd be surprised. Yeah. I'd be surprised if I got any kind of push back and trying to obtain. I think it's just logistics at this point. But you know, as far as far as the broader question. I kind of have to be careful. I see a lot of political of politicisation even a word in LA fire department right now, and and. Decisions right now. And this is a whole of what we know about the Garcetti administration in this current city council, I think so much political. You have no idea. I have talked to literally probably scores of firefighters and cops all over LA county at this point. I think at one of them to go on the record. Yeah, they're afraid. They're all. I have heard stories that would strip the varnish off your deck, but there's so much pressure. The one place that we're kind of starting to look out where there might be some traction is with the union because the union is a big obviously contributor to all of these political figures. And I think the union is the place where we gotta start looking. Maybe you guys can get somebody on the air to talk about these issues because you know, Garcetti, and and the city council, they're they're not afraid of you and me that they're afraid of the union. Because that's one of their money and their political poll comes from and how they get reelected. We're speaking of Chris LeGras attorney and journalists speaking about what's been going on here with the fire department and their responses to politicians asking them to go check on their homes and the the political interference without during the Wolsey fire, and even you know, the rich one percenters hiring their own fire departments that come check on their homes. That's interfering with the work and duty of the fire department when I want to know, Chris is, you know, if you get this report, or if anybody even off the record are we going to get names who are some of these politicians that called in are asking for favors to go check on their multimillion dollar homes up in Malibu or wherever they happen to live or their constituents. Are we going to get names? I think that's when people are going to get pissed off when we find out who these people are and who they're calling in favors for. I think that's when. People. When when the light is shed, you know, when the curtain is pulled back, I think that's when people can transparency happens is when people are going to get angry. I don't know if it will be this situation in particular will be this rosy fire and the favors being called in and finding out who the politician were. But I gotta tell you. There's so many examples of things like this happening around LA is it's going to be something. I mean, we know the FBI is looking into at least four members on the city council, right? So there is so much that it's percolating. Again. I talked to people every day all day about this stuff in my instinct is that there is there's so much outrage percolating. I think this story is not necessarily the gasoline. But it's certainly another big piece of kindling on the fire, but something is going to pop eventually. And again, you'll conversations with rank and file like LA F is the the rank and file that I mean, what is it going to take when a politician calls in and says, hey to to like a fire chief or battalion, captain, hey, we need to go. Check on so-and-so's multi million dollar house on the cliff over there Malibu, and you send in, you know, the rank and file guy to go down burning road back into a danger zone and a firefighter dies is that what it's going to take for the outrage and for somebody to go that was that was BS. You know, what I mean that is that what it's going to take for somebody's life to be for somebody to die for. Get anybody's attention. Do. You know what I'm saying? What you're saying? But as you guys have discussed on the show. I mean, you would think that when that father got stabbed him out in Ventura left homeless. Right. Exactly. Thank you. About the homeless issue. And yet here we laze. Thank you. And it's gotten even worse, and they still make when we talk about road is we say no to somebody off to die. Well, guess what? Eight people died in paradise. Yeah. I can't to be a pessimist. I'd like to come on the show and try to bring an optimistic note. But I don't know what it's going to take. I really don't. I wish I had an answer. It's just you know, we we talk about things like this every day on the air. And and you know, I look at drew. Sometimes I say, you know, we're as Americans I don't feel like we're the yellow vest, right? Were not like Europeans where we get up and we revolt, and we sort of, you know, say we're not going to drive our trash trucks today..

And they are no longer to care for themselves. Just like a demented patient. If they become so demented that they cannot longer care for themselves. Well, another way to get that kind of state is you can get there through medical problems where your brain isn't work. Right. But psychiatric problems are very common way to get there. And in those states, those states caused by severe bipolar mania chronic schizophrenia methamphetamine people cannot make decisions about their life. They can't they can probably feed themselves, but they can't normally clothed themselves. They can't normally house themselves. They can't certainly can't function at work and real set get killed. This is is defined by function the ability to function. And as it is now doctors can't do anything to help people unless they say, I'm gonna kill myself. I am going to harm someone else.

When you do you have a festering wound in your leg. And you believe the marshals put it there or you don't notice it whatever it is the site yet. Right. Yeah. Or you believe, you know, or you're looking all the hoarding that goes on. That's all that's hoarding behavior, and that's chronic psychotic illness. That's if you've if you understand one thing that drives me about the TV show crazy about the TV show hoarders is they don't teach you about the underlying conditions that make people this way just make them look like they're just have this one sliver of dysfunction, which is they can't let things go there. Hoarding. No. There's always a lot lot more going on. And and these are signs that somebody should be able to come in and help them you should not privilege their symptoms. You should not privilege the psychosis. The distorted beliefs the hoarding the law privileges though, symptoms and drives away JR.

Not to not to their right to have a fever. So leave them alone. They have a fever. It's insane. No other civilization. Does this? It's beyond silly. And there's so much. There's so many problems all over and people that just live in the communities. They just feel helpless, and they don't know what to do people pay their taxes and they're trying to right there. The people in their councils in their local councilmen their state people. And it just seems like nothing's being dubbing. Don't they because they hide behind a charade and the charade is that this is a housing problem. And yes, an element of it includes the issue of housing, but as you and I have discussed nauseam. If you correct the housing problem, you will have done little housing does not cause they're to be thousands of needles in the park that your kids play. Dial housing does not cause you to have to rake the park foreign syringes at people are using to shoot drug. That's not a housing problem.

I think that a lot of people that want to preserve the second amendment right to bear arms with feel a lot more comfortable with with liberals and others wanting to limit access to semi automatic and fully automatic weapons. If liberal legislators was willing to put in writing in legislation that they will not now or ever attempt to take away our right to to bear arms, but liberal legislators if given that option won't do it because ultimately that is that I think is their goal to take more the why would they want to take away guns?

I mean, it looks like that's the only thing we're getting out of this guy. I just think to make progress on anything the media has to be destroyed. Not. Of course, your lovely show radio is one of the I mean, I'm not joking about that radio's one of the free speech outlets. We still have in America. We have we have the internet though, that's being chipped away. At with all. Of these conservatives and some of Trump's biggest supporters being de platforms by media monopolies, like Google, Facebook, Twitter and just think you know, the way they are moving. Well, okay. Forget that. But as the lying media. No, I mean, it's gotten so much worse in the Trump era era. Obviously I've written quite a bit about the meeting. My second book slander was was well, it was about the different ways liberals lie about conservatives. But what what what's the manifestation of that will mostly what you know, how how the New York Times, we'll report things, but it used to be you could read I'll take the New York Times, as my example, it has been newspaper of record. It used to be you can read New York Times and think okay, they're not they're not gonna give me the most important information. The I seventeen paragraphs. But if I read through all eventually, I'll eventually get to the facts they to be able to discern them you these. One-sentence towards the end will not. Figure out anything. No, right. No. That's right. It's gotten so out of control under Trump the media. They I as I said in the subtitles my last book, the last left has lost its collective mind. They've driven been driven. So mad by Trump that the media's just sorta taken the position. Okay. It's all hands on deck. We may lose our credibility with the American people. But that's okay. Anything to stop Trump? Which is why the I mean, I mostly watched liberal media MSNBC, all my all my remotes are spot welded to MSNBC at all times. It's just getting crazier and crazier. They may be able to get there. I guess, you know, on their best night's three million viewers and suddenly Stephen Colbert who is about to be cancelled as long as he just bashing Trump is ratings. I mean, this is considered huge ratings. It's three million people were a country. What is it three hundred and twenty million people? So they their ratings work. But it's just if it's as if they decided, hey, if we talk about a flat every night, we can get three million people to watch we'll be making money and all our kids can go to colleges, and we can pay their their school tuition. Everything will be great. But this is what we're going to do. We're going to promote a flat earth. That's we're going to do have you ever heard of the Gilman Abney Asia affect Gill? No, okay. This is a named after physicist Dr Gilman who noticed that every time. He read a story in the media about physics. It was wrong. It was distorted it was just so far off his understanding what they were reporting. And yet every time he would read an article about politics, international affairs. He would forget that fact and assume what he was reading was accurate. Of course, it's harder and more subjective to accurately report things like international relations. When physics has has a certain amount of factual sort of logic to it. They couldn't even get that. Right. Tell you that is hey, I can remember when I was a resident standing in patient rooms like watching morning news just sort of in the background. I'd hear something I go. What what did they say? What you gotta be kidding me. I remember when they announced that they were gonna cure all gastric problems with antibiotics, and it was on all the morning shows garden Austrailia, and I'm like, oh, give me a break. What? So yes. So medical reporting I have to I have to literally interpreted like I'm listening to Chinese and to help people understand what's being reported. I can just imagine. If I knew something about international law, or you know, really about politics, I would be dipped driven to distraction all the time. Yes. Yes. But I think people are are are picking up on it. I mean in part because of the media has lost its mind, and they're being more extreme than they ever have. But also you have and this is why they're being smart to shutdown conservatives on Twitter, for example, you can get an alternative perspective. I mean, I noticed this a few years ago. I forget what the what the crisis was. But there was some, you know, who's breaking news hair was on fire and somebody's sitting somewhere. I mean, an actual thing that you want it like like the Ferguson shooting or you know, parkland or something. It used to be that. When you hear something like there's somebody will be talking about it. You knew there was something going on. Well, you turn on the TV. I would I bet you nobody does that anymore. What do you do? The first thing you do is go to the internet. That's true. So they need to control the internet. You know, your your what is it Gilson or Gillman Gillman amnesia going? Okay, you're Gilman. Amnesia reminds me of sorry. One of my my friend who was big chess player told me. So obviously this was years ago. A lot of Soviet dissidents had come to this country and one of them he kept running into what the the grand chess master, meetings, whatever whatever these dorks deal and the guy really really hated the Soviet Union. He said, you know, if if I read in the paper, it's raining, I assume would be there would be son. I believe nothing nothing nothing. And then he's Iran's into this guy a few years later, and he said, and he says, yeah, I just got back from North Carolina and went to the bright brothers museum. But you know, you Americans have your own propaganda. Everyone knows that flight was invented by the Dmitri brothers. Galvin affect you. You're not believing it. But some of it. Well, I must say I just thing. I was noticing. I was flying yesterday. So I was reading a lot the thing. I noticed usually I don't even read the New York Times heading more. And I was they're most reliable subscriber. I was wanted to cut an ad for them. I read that every day from probably, you know, high school up until a couple of years ago, but I just couldn't take it anymore. I dropped my subscription sometimes or at least the delivered one. Sometimes I read it online. I was looking at yesterday. It's not only that. I don't trust it. And they're hysterical. And it is opinion masquerading as objective facts. Well, Trump said, but Noah is the best ice cream. But no, it's chocolate that is I guess a lot. I saw my favorite ones. Their list of the Trump lies, you know, their their idea. What a lie is is pretty pretty off the standard textbook definition. But on top of that. It's just really really boring, and when you have the New York Times on one part of your screen or. I can go to a website. I could go to Breitbart drudge V there and read an actually interesting article. That's what I think is really hurting normal people reading like. I think I think we answered me tell the story for which is I remember when I was in. That lists her young adult. I was watching some sort of news magazine show, and this, you know, this US reporter was attacking a Soviet this was during the Soviet Union Soviet journalists journalists I looked at him because why are you being so so so roughly me because look in our country journalism, and the media is a political enterprise in your country. It is a commercial enterprise. You will have your disposal distortions based on that commercial enterprise. I sure you ours, our political, and I thought, wow, and it stayed with me forty years. And now we're seeing the ultimate evolution right where they're saying. We're they get they get is which they are desperate for when they have these extreme. Men like stories. Where they just want to capture the is at any cost. Yeah. And that that is to go back to the narcissistic shallow ignoramus who betrayed his voters. I mean that the one well, they're probably a couple of good things about him. But one of the greatest things about him is I I mean, I just I never realized how much I hated the Republican party until Trump came along. And you could see the contrast. So among the things I've hated I hated them a lot of pasta and do apostasy right now, we got Marco Rubio and a couple of others jumping ship, right? Oh, yeah. You know, they're they're utterly useless. But the basic Republican position are slandered is to keep a letter of resignation on file just in case. They used a word that is banned by the New York Times. Oh, I'm so sorry. I said illegal alien here's my letter of resignation or they do this nonsense. You know, the the the the. The pussies excuse for being a pussy. I will not dignify that with a response. You just gonna let somebody slander you. So I mean, Trump ought to be showing them or the way this ought to be working not that he ought to do this. Robot ought to see how you respond when you're being slandered you punch back. Finally, we had a politician who was behaving that way finally out of politician as long as we're on the subject of the the new the new new politician prototype. We got with Donald Trump's finally had a politician talking about issues that Americans cared about. I mean as I wrote in my column yesterday in addition to all of the immigration problems. I'm doing a new thing. So I don't have to engage in bomb master editorialize. I'm just doing Trump by the numbers numbers. Bill saw that. Yeah. Number of executive orders, ending the anger babies scam zero and so on and so forth, but beyond immigration issue. Which is obviously the main issue that got him elected a really big thing. And I mean, this isn't me thinking it up later. It's all over my book and Trump we trust. It was so fantastic to finally have a Republican who was not beholden to Wall Street. That is just the stupidest thing my party does they get no donations. From Wall Street. Wall Street hates them, the Democratic Party, a wholly owned subsidiary of on Wall Street, but Republicans. Most elected Republicans. It is there's such thing just run out and Ono. We don't wanna tax George Soros because he's a job creator. No, he isn't you morons. So Trump comes along and says, no, they're not job creators, they're getting away with murder with this carried interest loophole. Allowing people like Warren Buffett George Soros to pay tax rate on their income of twenty percents. I won't bother explaining you can explain it later, drew how this is done. It's taxes interest income as opposed to salary where in their case. It's their salaries. This is what they do for a living. So that was a big issue for Trump. And I remember one of the debates John casick was asked about it. And he said, no, they're the job creators want to encourage investment. And I'm just sitting listening thinking, please donate to me. He's donate to me. Trump gets no money from Wall Street the day. He got elected it should have been welcome to hell Wall Street. No, he hires more, Goldman Sachs employees than Obama and Bush combined. And what do we get do? We get a repeal of the carried interest loophole that that Trump promised us. No that would be another big fat zero. And and you mentioned it's a new prototype of politician. Is it a new type or is it a throwback to the nineteenth century? No, I'm never wild about the comparisons to other politicians. I mean, you could be right. But I just think it's different times different people different country. You you're you're you probably are right. All I know is my current Republican party is so pathetic, and useless and refuses to respond to what the voters actually want. If nothing else Trump should've illustrated to my idiot, Republican party look. New book. That's a Taylor. Your newborn idiot Republican party. Are you advocating a new party? I kind of think we're doomed. I think it's time to you want to start a medical show on..

I was just touting some of the encouraging things you've been telling me I want hear him from your voice from your own mouth. Thank you for joining us. Well, it's encouraging to know that we're making, you know, some some movement. It's discouraging because it's not gonna happen as quickly as I think you and I recognize that needs to happen, but we're very focused on mental health laws and the need to change them up in Sacramento, and there's definitely momentum. Both bipartisan both Republican and democrat working together. Isn't that refreshing to yes, I told I told? I told you and I've told the audience I I don't care if we're making bipartisan deals with the Elza, Bob. I don't care. Let's just get this done for people because it's ridiculous. And and I was also saying, you know, a friend of mine challenge me the other day and was saying we need families that take care of their mentally ill. And of course, we do. But the families can't give their loved one into their home. If the symptoms of that mental illness keep them on the street. Yeah. I mean, if they're if they're over eighteen and they're consenting adults. The law is on their side to decline. Karen?

But he doesn't want to accept it continues. Because it has schizophrenia to end up on the street or in the jails, and if there was an expansion. Yeah. If there was an expansion of gravely disabled, and if there was an expansion of potential conservative ship that family could say, hey, you're coming home. We're keeping you home. You're sick in two weeks later trust me that person will be like who left you on the street. What do you guys not love anymore? Why did you leave me on the street? True, true, Senator stirred and extended. I'm sorry. San Francisco, and then stern represents part of my district Santa Korea's well valley worked on the conservative ship part and the gravely disabled without being able to say to them. You are a danger to yourself another and really. Extend on that criteria. Because right now, it's so big that that they're left on the street. You know, it just occurred to me, I I sorta using this model of families that are so desperate to bring their loved ones home. Maybe that's where the gravely disabled can be applied. Which is if there is a, you know family to house the individual and the families assessed by social services to be able to manage it that you could sort of mandate some some sort of quasi conserve ship to the home. And then that and thereby be able to live with a psychiatric care. I mean, that'd be perfect. It says I just occurred. There may be a way to expand gravely disabled. So doctors aren't the only ones sort of seen as dragging people in against their will know, the family that loves you once you home, that's what we can do with with a disabled. Yeah. You're a medical doctor. You know, thirty years ago, we've advanced so much as it relates to mental health drugs that, you know, this whole concept of locking them up and throw away the key or eight nine is really no longer the case about stabilizing any now people can get shots rather than take pills me, we've come a long way and incorporating the families nominee, which is a National Alliance.

I'm happy to climb on board and speak on their behalf. They need anything. I've worked with them on and off over the years. Let me let me switch gears a little bit.

And that is a conservative to play. And and he agrees that it's not a question that if it's question when it will not get a handle on what's going on. How he he goes to bed every night the way I do with this spinning in his head. What's what's going to happen here? I would love to talk to this guy. Why does the city council or the LA county? Supervisor why don't they allow this man to speak to them and just lay on the reality of what they're they're facing? This summer is that going to happen publicly or do I have to go? No, one of the things we talked about is, you know, with the weather the way it is right now. It's kind of forgotten. What happened down the street at city hall? Yeah. As it relates to the outbreak. They had there. But he came in to talk to me about an issue. Actually, the irony is not lost this this new storm water measurably past one of the things we didn't think about is the water. That's underneath the swing of the storm water. It's like doorman eight that mosquitoes which carry it. Undoing consulted with doctor control. How are we going to mitigate cities? So we had know we had a meeting, and it was very informative meeting, and he is very much willing able and it's going to be a huge resource for me as you have been rolling out what we need to do moving forward. But this is not going to be an easy issue to address. Matt all no, we we we have really let an entire team of horses out of the barn. And we're trying to get him back. I believe we can. But. Well, listen, Katherine. Thank you for fighting the good fight. God bless you. Thank you for sharing your thoughts today. Let's let's keep going forward.

What did you say? We have a hard time understanding. Now, we think I e. Go better. He didn't mention anything about government subsidy favor, you of that money went to renewable energy. So learn wins. We could eventually get off the grid. Where do you get the money to to build all that infrastructure? It's government subsidies neighbor fossil fuels. Allocate the money to go toward renewable not. So he got the money. Okay. So in the meantime, just shut down fossil fuels, and you don't have energy. I mean, there's gotta be some sort of. No, no, there's a transition. But at least we can get the ball rolling and people need to bring that up. Subsidy is critical either you need money to get anything done.

Let's continue this conversation about this teachers to Q your lesson plan. Go ahead Franko. I got in on the conversation late today. But that was my question, you know, what was her lesson plan? What did she expect the students to get out of it except the same sense of humiliation and depression? That the Swedes got when they were. Let's let's let's say let's say that was the intention that she wanted kids to understand acutely. How that felt would that be an appropriate sort of thing for a teacher to do? So it's a lesson plan. What does what does she expect the students to feel afterwards? I mean, I can look at a picture and there's foul does of paintings of. Slaves being cramped like bats said garbage and the rest, and that's enough for me. I don't need to do a role play. Yeah. I agree with you. What if she had said what if she had said by wins? You think by the way? Here's here's my thing. And we don't know that this didn't happen, by the way, we don't have the data yet. But she should have been including all students in this experience right now, just African Americans. And we don't know that's not the case that might have been the case. And we also don't know. And we don't know how she consented them. In other words, it she'd call a Perez did she tell them it's going to be a feel horrible. But I think it's important to get deep into this. How horrible this was is there is there any way Franko that it becomes okay? Well, if she had class other races in the classroom, and I would be more appropriate to have the other non black dry. Sit around. Yeah. That's what I was thinking. And then I was also thinking I mean, if it's a play that we heard that there might have been a narrative to this too. And I imagine there must have been slave-drivers or slave owners or something in there would have been there had to be. Everybody change roles on that. Maybe she did. I don't know. We don't know. Would be good to know. It'd be good to know more facts. Yeah. But but listen, I gotta tell you. I having a sort of an experience here as we bring this up. We don't we don't discourse on this kind of material enough. And that may be why we misstep on these things we really gotta talk about this history, and our feelings about it. And you know, and not feel restrained in it humbly, I would say would you agree with me? I would agree. But again, I think the people that need to experience something like that is non blacks back. That's just the way I feel about I totally agree with you. But but until we say it doesn't happen, right? That's true. That's true regard, Frank. Appreciate the call. Thank you. All right. Thank you.

That doesn't make it right either. No. But I'm going to say why don't we are we condemning him or we again this kind of inconsistent. And some of the stuff we do. Is that legal? If your parents say, it's okay. Yeah. It's legal. I don't that's right ethical. Now, of course, I again, fifteen year old brains are not being able to manage these sorts of things. Thank you. Let me let me for those. You just remind you that that we just had for Franco was about a teacher who has part of her lesson had her students lie on their stomachs and she put pressure on their back with her feeling walked on their back in some sort of lesson about the experience of slavery and one I think it was one student and her parents objected to this. There was an African American gentlemen, there present at the during this presentation or player, whatever it was narrative felt that he would have done the same thing with his students. Right is right. And that it was okay. And then there was initially a investigation into whether or not this was appropriate or the serious issues involved in the debate over this stuff this teacher she was exonerated. And then some sort of social media consternation developed insurance fire said the case was revived after meteoroid. Reports reported the incident, and then on you know, blew up and they fired her eight hundred two two two five two two two of you have an opinion about this. And she thinks she's filing this lawsuit. And then planning the one billion dollar class action case with other teachers claiming similar discrimination because she saying now that she's completely unemployable. Well, I don't I don't like her her plan. I don't like what she did. But I'd like this lawsuit because until players are forced to stop firing people every time there's any little wind blowing in social media this business and social media of the mob. Tried to harm people is not gonna stop right. There has to be some sort of countervailing port force. It has employers stopping not firing automatically not distancing themselves from employees because of some social media PR, but stopping and doing careful investigation getting appropriate council audit. And then then deciding whether you fire somebody as I move firing. That's the word that is heinous and it's giving power to a a mob. I just think of how in California you have a teacher that puts a sale for you. No, no, no. I'm just saying his bodily fluids into some cookies and feeds them to a students, and then we can't fire him. And then he just sits in a room while he's getting paid because you couldn't fire him. Right away yet. You have this happen. We don't know. Exactly. What's happening? But she was trying to do a history teaching moment. I guess we don't know from the information. And then they fire her immediately. Hundred five two two two again, eight hundred five two two eight hundred two two two five to to to be a part of this conversation. I just said we can't talk enough about this stuff myself because it's we're living in a time of social Justice mobs. Then have the power to get people's lives turned upside down like this teacher. I'm not saying that teacher shouldn't be it'd be fired. But. Maybe she should be council. Maybe she'll be all kinds of. But but to have the judge and jury and executioner be social media. This is really a problem today. Lissette us and all that I just gravely concerned. Well, it said initially the department the education department initially reassigned Cummings before firing her after an investigation. According to an agency spokesman their probe found that she used poor judgment, but did not substantiate. The corporal punishment charge. So. Interesting eight hundred two two two five two two two hundred phone number. There's a couple of things I want to get to one is there's a flat earth crews afoot everybody flatter three crews now. Yeah. But I don't know how you cruise the earth of it's flat. And have you better be careful before you go? My husband would lose his mind your husband's aviation as he's a navigator. He sees the world from well. And you know, when they fly they tend to go up above someone. They come down a lot quicker to fly that way, you know, they have to take into account the curvature. Advocation a lot longer to go around the middle of the earth. Oh, yeah. Yeah. It's about. I have an explanation for that. But it does bring up a really interesting. We had a plumber once come and he tried. He was a talker. And all of a sudden people who believe that stuff all of a sudden just started talking, and then just started talking about a flat earth. My husband, and I'm like, oh my gosh. She is not talking about the earth the sled. Izzy and I just looked at Chris, and yeah, he couldn't get out of our house. We're still talking about this teach Oregon's calls that at eight hundred two two two five two two two. But I wanna talk about the backfire effect. And how you turn how you how logic and Jake and facts don't matter for people anymore. But let's get to Denny didn't even go ahead. Hi, Dr drew its name. Did he got here voice? Oh my God. Did you ever deneen from h? Hi, I'm listening. You're thinking about the teacher. And at some point commonsense has got to kick in if the facts are as they've been presented here. So basically if she's doing a lesson on sexual harassment. Would it be okay for them bailed male students to grow female students. Just you know. Education purposes. Lesson on the holocaust would be okay. To shove all the Jewish kids into the showers and turn them on. I mean, come on. So. Any other things available to teach these kids. Besides his hands on bullishness that can go bad so quickly, obviously. Preach. Your honor roll? But it's why for me. That's why that's why my Spidey sense. But she started stepping on their backs. You're now in bodily contact. Roane to travel lesson for elementary. Don't even know how old these kids are. I don't care if there was consent there, we have an internet. We have so many other ways to give valuable lessons. We have speaker second come in. We get all kinds of things without having to reach tied in order to see I don't have to see child abuse in order to know it exists any pain. The problem for me. It doesn't make any sense. I mean, I don't know what the facts are what the way it's being presented. It was just the common sense of obviously not there. It was not common that day. And I'm just like, I think it's ridiculous. Delivering on what I always Claritin. We couldn't get to exactly. Yeah. All right. My dear good. It's good.

I was I'm playing in that celebrity softball game on Sunday. Let's supposed to kind of well it's supposed to rain tonight until tomorrow. Yeah. But it's going to be soggy. All right. Let's the bottom of the hour. We're going to get into it with set barons employment and business law attorney regarding a teacher fired for making an African American student play a slave in a class seen now, though, we're going to go out to our friend Bethany Mandel editor ricochet columnist for the forward and political analyst Bethany it's been too long happy new year. Hey, happy new year. I am. I'm enjoying listening to complain about the weather degrees in New Jersey and Maryland. Where where we have fires and that mudslides twentieth. So yeah, look, we're going to be fine out here. We we are. Absolutely. Whether what what the gentlewoman might I use. There's not a good word for it. But you don't have talking about we we are not a good with weather here. We should see as drive as soon as it starts drizzling. Water water. So well Bethany, let's talk a little bit about the Pentagon, preparing on this wall thing. So, you know, the president has said now he's not going to declare a national emergency for the minute for the moment that if he does it we'll go to the ninth circuit court of appeals. And then it will go to the supreme court, then it's going to be delays in my time, and he'll be sued, and let's get the congress to push this. Anyway, what what's going on here? It's hard to know. I my general rule of thumb with this White House and everything that goes on with it is I don't trust anything that comes out about it. And I don't trust anything that comes out from it. So what I heard many grain of salt that they are going to try to sort of. By by by decree and then. Can the government backed up and see if it holds. But I think that neither side is willing to sort of lose faith. And so they are they're trying to figure out ways that they can reopen the government without embarrassing themselves. So this might be one of those waves for the Trump administration to do that what what has happened with government that it no longer serves the people? I just that's the only thing I see both in my state government in my federal government, which is by city governments people. My county government says the people by state, my federal government is interested in politics and ideology. That's it. What happened? I wouldn't say that your state government. Does a particularly good job. No, no. No, no, no, listen to you. I stayed does worse than federal government. We complain about all the time. What I said was by city at my county do a good job. But my state and federal government is only interested in politics money at ideology. Yeah. I think a lot of that has to do with where their money comes from and also sort of it's become it's become nearby. Streams? And so in order to get elected, you can't you can't show weakness. You can't so mercy. And so now valued at leader people who are ruthless and who don't care about a government shutdown and who will just blame the situation on each other and insanity. And I it's it's I I don't know where to go from here. And I think it's only going to get worse. Now, the Democrats control the house not that that's a bad thing. Right. But now there's going to be even more sort of. Head to head battles. Well, the utopia this California's an example of what happens when one party rule. So we've got that here. There's not too much stymie here as much as rapaciousness, which is the other end of the spectrum. And generally, I it's just so frustrating when you think about the, you know, we, you know, here in southern California. We have a school strike pending and eighty four percent of the kids living in poverty, seventeen thousand the kids homeless over fifty percent at some high schools from foster care people languishing streets in San Francisco and Los Angeles, and the government does nothing we have this breaking down of our system of our society of our very far fabric of being able to sort of operate as we as a society. You can't have all that can you or do you want that I totally fusing to me into? We are. I mean, I think a lot of the problem is people are inflating themselves from a lot of these issues when these strikes happen in Los Angeles. A lot of people aren't like the loudest people are not sending their kids to these schools because they're they're not the best quality, usually so. I think there are a lot of times people are able to pass the bucket until it sort of comes come home to roost, and I think with this with this government shutdown chickens will come home to roost because now it's starting to affect air travel and the FDA so what's gonna go on there house? How does that work? So yes, a are are not being paid. And so there are massive pick out happening across the country. I think justifiably so they're not getting paid. There shouldn't have to show up to work. But the problem is they're they're closing terminals. Let me just again Bethany just point out that for those of us who have worked for Medicare routinely not paid Medicare almost almost never paid. But we we were to physicians, and nurses, and hospitals wouldn't get paid all the time. We worked for free all the time. So if you're working for the government, you'd better expect that. And that's why a lot of doctors won't take Medicaid Medicare. They know. That's the fact, and that's that's the bread. But we don't we don't walk out. But we don't walk out on our responsibilities. We still take care of sick people without exception. Yeah. I think it's different when you are screening people to get on a flight versus someone someone's going to die without you is job. Listen, I am sympathetic does he essay? But isn't there an oath? I don't think. So I mean, their minimum wage employees. Really? Yeah. Oh, yeah. They make minimum wage. Yes, I do solemnly swear. To support and defend the constitution. Oh, really? TSA? I will bear true, faith and allegiance to the same. That I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose vision that I will faithfully keeps going. So yeah, I I don't know. So. I don't see a world where there's not a wall with Mr. Trump is president, right? The case it would have been nice for him to prioritize it in the last two years will that's another interesting point. And why do you think it suddenly came all of a sudden as a crisis? I mean, I think part of it is the caravan. And I think it's it's not totally absent events. But I think that he he can't look at as victory and just take a victory, and it was only what three weeks ago, he passed criminal Justice reform any other White House in American history. Recent American history would have taken a victory like that. And walked it for at least three months, and no one talked about it, even when it happened. Van Jones did banjos talked about it Kim Kardashian talked about it. Yeah. And the only reason we're talking about it would be good to Kim Kardashian Kim Kardashian and Kanye west had come to the White House. No one would have known it existed at all. But, but that's the Trump way which is just manic rolling on. Right. Just more more more. And that's sort of why it's weird that this thing got so in his craw to me it correlated. Exactly with the Ann Coulter's of the world. Who started speaking up about it and said like, hey, oh, yeah. You're right. I'm gonna take care of this. And then boom, right? Yeah. I think it's entirely possible that the election is starting to sneak up on him and he lost. He lost the house. And the Senate was was not not a layup. And he's sort of seeing his potential future coming up, and and people questioning what has he done for me? And what has he done and the things that he promised? And this is a massive thing that he called us. And I think he's sort of maybe had a gut check of. Oh, goodness. I didn't follow through on one of my major campaign promises. I should do that right now. I want to talk about what you were saying a few minutes, go about what comes out of the White House was reported about the White House and land United or talked about this. But I I was at the White House for one of the opiate supposed. Yeah. And when I what I experience in that day with some extraordinary ideas and extraordinary people and some real progress, and you will see the data will bear that out soon. We're we're really making. And God bless Kellyanne Conway who is heading the whole thing up. I was told impressive what she was doing and poor Jeff Sessions the stuff he wants to do. I was like she's very impressive. And I'm all about it. Then Mr. Trump made a surprise visit to the group we didn't know to she the first lady was there. We knew she was going to be there. But he sort of walked in at the last minute. And you know, did some very strange extraordinary impromptu, our friend of his there, he goes, hey, Steve come up here. I didn't know you're going to be here. Come here. Tell a story about your son, the guy just started crying. He knew the sun was died of drug addiction and off they went he went on to see you see a horrible. This is these are horrible things. And and then he went on to say, you know, I I go around the world. And you know, we we gotta do something. And some countries they make them pay the ultimate price for this. So guys like Steve don't have to do that. But we don't do that. I don't know what we're gonna do. We gotta do something. So we had extraordinarily day all kinds of progress. The Justice Department's make all sorts of plans what gets reported out of that entire day by all news agencies. Mr. Trump says we got to execute drug dealer. Oh, my that was the only thing that came out of the White House from the press. So I thought to myself it's I left at that that oh my God. I can't believe anything the press reports about our government nothing. You saw it firsthand. Oh my God. I have no idea what's going on in our government because the press is as liquid relegated the responsibility to a tabloid, and I it's really bothered me ever since. So I don't know what's going on. Yeah. I I've heard that from so many people who have had experience exactly like that. And I my husband, and I call it the economist experience, basically when you read the economist, which is like this, very lofty weekly magazine, that's very long and takes very. Tone. And when you read staying in it, you're you're like, oh, okay. That sounds that sounds really legit. But then when you read things that, you know, about like, I know the Israel-Palestinian Palestinian conflict, very well. And when you read things about it in the economy shows that is completely inaccurate. And it makes you start to wonder like what was that thing in there about India? True Bethany, you listen. You don't have the experience the leeann I have way too. They write a story about you know, for sure how accurate help us. Are it is? Yeah, I can't even imagine the distance reality. You can't imagine it. Yeah. And so that right. Yeah. Steph that don't even know, you know, nothing about you and right stuff as if it's completely true. And then when it's found to be untrue. No, there's no front page rescinding of their stories ever ever ever. No matter how much harm they've done. We've we've had that experience recently also with with my husband and his sort of work situation. So what does he do? I I I do he is the executive editor of the Washington Examiner magazine. Yeah. There is a nice, and I started controversy to start off his tenure at the magazine. And a lot of what was written was lately. False, and it's very frustrating. And so yes, I just I sort of. How how devoted depress is to bring the president down. And I'm not a huge fan of the president. But I it's come to the point where I I don't trust anything that's written about this White House because I've seen exactly what you're describing with the opioid meeting..

"They want him no more catch and release. I thought catch-and-release was released into this country. Both. It goes both ways that was the big problem. If you catch him, that's where all the all the federal cases started happening of now prosecuting people trying to cross the legally, these never prosecute all those cases. They've only prosecute. If you already had a record. And now it's a matter of prosecuting everybody because there's no more catch and release. I thought it was they released you in this country. I didn't think they turn you around and put you back into Mexico, by the way came from where if you go back to Mexico, and they catch you again just keep coming back to they don't catch right now. That's what that's where the federal laws come in. Right. So basically, there's a federal law that says if you legally enter the country, you can be prosecuted criminally that rule was never really implemented. If you were someone who was previously ordered a deportation then you can be federally prosecuted and criminally prosecuted, then what they did was part of catch and release was. All right. You don't have a record. You don't have anything. Go ahead and sign this voluntary departure. We'll just send you right back to Mexico. We'll just let you go. We'll send you back. Now. It's now the prosecuting anyone who crosses the legally whether they have a record or not and that that kills part of that process. They don't want to send it back. They want to teach a lesson prosecute and put them in jail. And then send them back that is a complete waste of money.

"leeann tweeden" Discussed on KGO 810
"Media Laverick leeann tweeden, Dr drew so real good was talking to us about some something. I knew about which is there's a lot of discipline. Physical discipline is so called, and there's an interesting he was talking about how that has an impact, and we take care of our own problems here. We don't recruit the outside world because it's not to be trusted. And he's right. That's all that will happens. I I've been aware of that. But there's a little wrinkle in that. Which is kind of interesting, which is that there's two distinctive types of parenting styles that are likely to use physical discipline. One is called a thorough -tarian. Okay. And in the third -tarian parenting high demands low responsiveness from the parents, they tend to have vice versa expectations yet provide little in the way of feedback and nurturance. So they're not involved in it. It's sort of from on high. You're telling your kid you want this. I expect this I expect this and when the kid dozen they look at the parent like I need praise I need whatever I need some. And they give you nothing some of that. And also just it's just an in. It's thought of complete excessive use of powers as opposed to a thorough tater when the patient. The parents are actually even put higher demands on the kids gosh intend to be stricter. But tend to be consistent and engaged. So it's consistency is probably better. Right. I mean if you're trying to pick. And so the reason I bring it up is that in in a setting of authoritative parenting, some of this physical discipline doesn't have the same impact, doesn't it isn't as destructive. Now, it can be destructive. Once an adult picks up an object. You got a problem because I came from the south, and I remember he was talking about switches. And I remember some of our neighborhood kids on the green their parents would tell them go get the switch off the tree we had long willow trees. They would be told to go pick the switch and like pick it off the tree. And there would be whipped with the one that they brought back in from outside and very destructive man, psychologically, right there, and then the physical, right? So think about the psychology of being hit with an open hand. Which is I got the sancta couple times by my dad, but that didn't happen. All right. But the person that's supposed to be my safety becomes the object of discomfort in possibly misery. That's bad adult picks up an object, then that adult becomes possibly threatening the survive. Kick you probably feel like you're gonna kill me. And even though that may not be a rational thought the picking up his real hot wheel tracks not gonna kill you. You don't know that and your central nervous system. Doesn't know that what's happ? What's important is when adult picks up an object. You cross a line generally into a zone where the child central nervous system reacts in ways. That are let's call it destructive sets a trajectory of dissociation and unregulated emotions and lack of trust distrust forever. I mean the. And that's the vim become the biggest problem is getting kids back into a frame of trusting relatedness because in closeness becomes the source of threat. That's my world. All my patients have that history. And so my job, first and foremost is get them into the frame just teach them that there can be safety and close us from another human who is considered here and can really hear you relate to you. And here everything and feel everything you're saying they don't get much of that. And also avoid it. They've already very actively often. Of course, my patients are always loaded. Our number is eight hundred. That's that's where they go with that. Because they can't regulate you gotta remember that your body builds the machinery for emotional regulation by being close to adult brains. Right because it's adult satellite brains that do regulate that children superheroes there at the standard. You're thinking about a cognitively, but it's actually a bodily based thing. Like the presence of your body helps regulate the child's body. How does that present? How just how how well that is. Is a conversation. I'll have to give you one of my lectures on. That is actually we actually kinda know about is a guy named Alan shore L Shourie in here. He's he's so am cuddling with my kid reading a nights a good thing. Yes. Good thing. Good thing. And and the coming down to the level on eye contact us in if I were to down to talk to my children.
