What do we know about Joe Bidens cabinet?
"Us president donald trump was never going to react to losing the two thousand and twenty election gracefully us. President donald trump has never reacted to anything gracefully as we go to air trump continues to insist that he's crack. Legal team are going to unveil conclusive evidence of monstrous voter fraud any day. Now although on current form trump's personal attorney rudolph giuliani clearly. Clearly voter fraud easily. Provable seems just as likely to unveil the heron he has appointed his deputy however earlier this week trump or whoever priced his sweaty phone from his. Tony hands grudgingly tweeted that the us general services administration the body which oversees presidential transitions should do what needs to be done. This will make life somewhat. Easier for president elect joe biden. Who will now have access to government funding office space senior officials and intelligence briefings among other things. It also means that he can name his cabinet with increasing confidence. Very possibly because president-elect biden has wanted to emphasize legitimacy in the face of the incumbents ongoing tantrum vis-a-vis the election results. We've learned a lot quite early about the administration. He intends to lead from january twentieth. Is a team that will keep our country and our people safe and secure. It's a team that reflects the fact that america is back ready to lead the world not retreat from it once again. Sit at the head of the table. We will come presently to who. And what is in biden's cabinet but at least as significant things being as they recently have been is who and what is not biden has not at least as of this broadcast awarded any government position to any obvious crooks crepes clowns ding bats. Yahoos griffis spivs cracks. He's own ghastly children or they idiot husbands but wild president-elect biden does have the advantage of a low bar to climb over. It doesn't mean that he's choices are excused scrutiny especially those pertaining to foreign policy on the grounds that. Us foreign policy often has a way of becoming of the people's domestic reality president. Trump's first secretary of state was to put it charitably unorthodox unorthodox choice. I'm not here to represent the united states government's interest. I'm not here to to did norm. Norma here to criticize it. That's that's not what i do. I'm businessman. Rex tillerson a career oil. Baron wants personally awarded. Russia's order a friendship medal by president vladimir putin president-elect to biden could scarcely have made a moral docs pick as america's top diplomat. And that's where the men and women of the state department foreign service officers civil service. That's where they come in. I've witnessed their passion their energy their courage up close. Antony blinken is a career foreign policy. Boffin who served as deputy secretary of state and deputy national security adviser during the presidency of barack obama with national security advisor trump also tried to be a bit left field. He named lieutenant. General mcmaster a serving soldier and actually not a ridiculous choice. Mcmaster is a smart serious and sensible man and all of those reasons fell out with trump. who replaced him with incorrigible. Neo-con head banger. John bolton who only looksmart serious and sensible when standing next to donald trump but this arrangement proved unworkable. Good to everyone. I'm paul affairs. We are coming on the air right now with our breaking news just moments ago. President trump tweeting that he has asked his national security adviser. John bolton to resign. Joe biden has named jake sullivan. I pledge to you. And to the american people that i will work relentlessly in service of the mission you have given us to keep our country and our people safe to advance our national interests and to defend our values who was the president-elect's national security adviser when the president-elect was vice president he also helped negotiate the nuclear deal with iran from which trump famously flounced trump's first. Us ambassador to the united nations was not a completely absurd choice former south carolina governor nikki. Haley he's second ambassador to the. Un was a completely absurd choice. Prodigious republican donut kelly craft. It could actually have been worse. Trump wanted to appoint his daughter. Ivanka but griped that he would be accused of nepotism. I've heard i've already vodka. I've heard how good woody vodka the people that know. There's nothing to do with nepotism. But i want to tell you the people that know no that evacuate would be dynamite about You know then. Be accused of nepotism if you can believe it right. This was accurate in as much as demanding money from bank tellers. Gunpoint can lead one to be accused of armed robbery. I want to say to you. America is back. multi-lateralism is back. Diplomacy is back.
Kayleigh McEnany said Trump wasn't given an 'orderly transition of power' in 2016.
"Of Kayleigh Mcenany. I think it's a longer tape. It's like two minutes, right. I want to give Kayleigh mcenany the floor for one of the most comprehensive and should be viral clips. Of exactly how Democrats have been treating President Trump the last four years play tape. Talked about and identify the real potential for fraud with mass Valin voting also something that I would notice just we talked a lot about transfer of power in the election, and it's worth remembering that this president was never given an orderly transition of power. His presidency was never accepted. In fact, before theologian his election we know Crossfire Hurricane was launched by Peter struck to pursue a baseless allegations about the president's ties with Russia. That's before he was president, trying to subvert the will of the American people we know. In August, Peter Struck, wrote a text message about an insurance policy. Against a trump presidency once again, trying to silence the voice of the American people on in 2016, you know, in October that there was a five a warrant if ISA warrant taking out to spy on the Trump campaign And the American people spoke, and they spoke commandingly in electing President Trump. Despite all of the odds and what happened after he was elected, you had 70 lawmakers say We're not coming to his inauguration. Democratic lawmakers you had Elizabeth Warren saying. We're going to attempt to obstruct the trump transition by urging the Government Accountability Office to investigate the incoming trump transition. In January of that year. You had President Obama have a by the book meetings. Where they talked about the Logan Act, using that act to go after Lieutenant General Michael Flynn just before the inauguration, you had Buzzfeed promoting and publishing this bogus Steele dossier that's been widely debunked. I'm in for two years. You have the basis. Mueller investigation, which search for collusion, found none and exonerated President Trump

Senate Holds Confirmation Hearing For Trump's New Pick For Ambassador To Ukraine
"Update now on two important diplomatic vacancies. One is the post of U. S ambassador to the Ukraine. The last woman who held that Senate confirmed job was a central figure in President Trump's impeachment. And now the president's pick for the job is facing some lingering question in his own confirmation hearing. NPR's Michelle Kelemen reports President Trump's ouster of the ambassador to Ukraine featured prominently in his impeachment trial. Marie Ivanovich face to smear campaign by Trump's private lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who had been pressing Ukraine to get dirt on Vice President Joe Biden. Senator Bob Menendez, the ranking Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, says that's still happening. Giuliani Esteban, Savory Ukrainian characters have not let up their efforts to use Ukraine to interfere in U. S politics. Others in the Senate seem intent on amplifying their efforts. Menendez wants the new nominee, retired Lieutenant general Keith Dayton, to avoid playing into this and avoid any meetings with Giuliani. Senator I'm not going to commit to that, because I believe that as an ambassador, I would have the obligation to meet with any U S citizen and hear them out. It was a home. Dayton has been a defense attache in Moscow, a security advisor for the U. S on the Israeli Palestinian conflict, and, in recent years has run the George Marshall European Center for Security Studies in Germany. He's well versed on Ukraine, but his answers frustrated both Menendez and another Democrat Chris Murphy. So at the end of the hearing, he did offer this reassurance. Ify is the U. S ambassador and key Have any indication that there is any kind of election interference going on using Ukraine as a azalea ever to do that? I would, of course, report that directly to this committee. I think you have a right to know that I think I have an obligation to report that to Dayton says his priorities in the country, if confirmed, would be to help Ukraine fight corruption and beef up Ukraine's Navy and Air force. Next door in Belarus. The U. S is reviving diplomatic relations in part because of Russia's aggression. In Ukraine. Career diplomat Julie Fisher has been tapped to run the U. S embassy in Minsk. Our relationship with Belarus languish for more than a decade. But after Russia's illegal seizure and occupation of Crimea, and it's manufactured war in Ukraine stone best region, we began to see signs of interest from the Belarussian sign. Belarus recently bought US crude oil to decrease its dependence on Russia and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Minsk earlier this year. But the's warming ties will be tested by an election this Sunday, and Fisher face questions about that the first component to ensuring that we can continue to grow this relationship. Not see steps backward in the conduct of this presidential election. The long time ruler Alexander Lukashenko is facing a united opposition in the run up to this election, and his regime has been cracking down. There will be no international monitors, though Fisher says the U. S embassy will be watching the vote closely. What we are trying to get Johnny is basically to ensure that there is space to ensure their space for more than one voice. In this country. Lukashenko kicked out the less U. S ambassador to Belarus in 2008 after the US accused his government of human rights violations and tighten sanctions. Michelle Kelemen NPR NEWS Washington
Flynn and Russian ambassador transcripts released
"Congressman Devin Nunes twenty two California ranking on the house intelligence comment on documents just tap now in the last hour these are the trends of the conversations between lieutenant general Michael Flynn retired U. S. army in December of twenty sixteen when he was on the trump transition scheduled to be the national security adviser come the twentieth and the inauguration the conversation with the then Russian ambassador Kislyak the conversations were said to be pertinent to the background that the Obama administration at the issued sanctions against the Russian federation having to do with the election interference and other bad acting by players that subsequently we learned were not directly attached to the Russian government that would be the internet trolls of Petersburg but in any event there was a lot of noise at the time that these conversations contained violations of certain obscure laws like a Logan act or perhaps a tip A. as a in exchange promises that were not Michael Flynn's to give or perhaps it had something to do with the allegation of collusion between the trump administration the trump campaign and Russia we didn't know because we didn't have the transcripts Devin you've now read these transcripts which were denied to you when you were conducting the investigation that led to your memo of the winter of twenty eighteen that is the gold standard for what we know about russiagate you've eggs you've read the transcripts now what do you make of them what surprises do you find here well I would just say this the briefing that we received shortly after the F. B. I. agents when an unannounced unprecedented into the White House to interview general plan just red flag one big problem right there at the beginning of all this weeks later we get into we get debriefed by the F. B. I. D. F. B. I. says look at the agents there that didn't think of when was lying about anything what will now we know why there wasn't anything to lie about John if if you read the the transcript they are you know as a river when president trump when during the Ukrainian impeachment hopes that you know trump had a call with the with the president and then when the call got released there was really nothing in the car when trump president trump you say was the perfect phone call well John this is not only a perfect phone call it's a very boring phone call and it fax it back it just looks like clothes that I have with with diplomats it doesn't look anything like anything different than what a a member of Congress has whenever I go overseas and meet with my fellow colleagues in the the and whether it be the foreign minister or the defense ministers or the intelligence leadership of foreign countries or even the prime ministers or presidents of countries it looks like a normal call that anybody that's in in the U. S. government or general Flynn's case the incoming national security adviser it looks like a normal perfect phone call and John you know what's missing we don't talk about sanctions in the call all this time suppose a we were led to believe that Flynn was having these long conversations about sanctions and no bother sanctions that the Obama it ministration president Obama put on to the Russian government John it's kind of hard to find in there if you go through you have to read really really close you know within a microscope to find where exactly they were talking about sanctions because the word sanctions doesn't even come up well there was a you know the the if anything it looks like a a normal conversation the only thing that that even gets close is general plan saying you know Hey we still want to work together you know don't hold this against us paraphrasing but that's about it yes the quote that I like here is general Flynn reminds ambassador Kislyak of his status he says remember ambassador you're not talking to a diplomat you were talking to a soldier I'm a very practical guy it is all about solutions a very humble statement from a man who is about to be national security adviser at the general also says we need cool heads to prevail and we need to be very study about what we're going to do because we have absolutely a common threat in the Middle East this is boilerplate very sensible and for general Flynn to say he's not an ambassador at not a diplomat I would say that's the most diplomatic of language there was no threat there was no exchange there were no promises this almost is a polite way of saying here I am you can call me up if you have
Pick a Plan and GET AFTER IT
"Leadership means firmness not harshness or bullying understanding not weakness justice erase the freedom humaneness not intolerance generosity not selfishness pride. Not Egotism so little quote for you kick things off. This is coming very I ran across it the other day and as I ran across it I saw some of little bit of the dichotomy leadership in there and it just caught my attention. And it's a quote General Omar Bradley General with a good amount of name recognition but a general who kind of flew under the radar sometimes because he was competing with some some big names. You know he's competing with General Patton. He's compete with General Eisenhower. He's competing with General Montgomery so he kind of flew under the radar sometimes even though he does have the Bradley fighting vehicle named after him which is a awesome machine but he absolutely was a well regarded general in his own right born in eighteen. Ninety three in Randolph County Missouri worked as a boilermaker figured out he could get a free education by going to west point so he went to West Point graduated in Nineteen fifteen same years. Eisenhower by the way he was a really good athlete. Baseball Star could've played pro ball but chose to be in. The army chose to go and do his commitment to the army. One thousand nine hundred fifteen. You're probably thinking World War. One W W well. He actually didn't go to World War One and World War One. There were mining disputes in the unions in the in the minds up in Montana and they had to activate some army units to send them up there to guard the minds. And that's what he did. He did that for a little while. And then he did go to unit that was getting ready to deploy to World War One. The Spanish flu came which everyone seems to know about the Spanish flu. Now and there then there was the armistice and he didn't deploy so he didn't get any combat action in World War. One thought that that might hurt his career but he stayed in anyways ended up teaching tactics at the infantry school fast forward through the peace years may general in one thousand nine hundred forty two assigned the eighty second division the Twenty Eighth National Guard division eventually worked under General Patton as the deputy in charge of Second Corps and then took it over himself led the campaigns in Tunisia and Sicily. Ike Eisenhower selected Bradley to command the First Army during Operation Overlord D Day Command. He commanded the most troops of any general.

Continue with all those troops to push through Europe until the fall Germany. We covered Ernie. Pyle on this podcast. Podcast number thirty nine. His book brave men. It was the heavies for my favor. Lines Ernie pyle nicknamed him the G. I. General because he was kind of a laid back down to Earth Guy didn't make a spectacle of himself. After the war he ran the VA for a while. The Veterans Administration I ever chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. During the Korean War retired in nineteen fifty-three after thirty eight years of service I found day. The Internet is amazing. I found any evaluation. You know we talk about the evaluations evaluation in the Marine Corps evaluation the navy evaluation. I found an evaluation of Bradley written by General Patent. Pretty cool because it shows it shows what type of a person patent was just in the way he wrote this thing so it says subject efficiency report through commanding general NATO USA APO five thirty four to add adjutant General War Department Washington DC name and grade of General Officer reported on Omar F Bradley Lieutenant General Period covered one July nineteen forty three to eight September nineteen forty two months in eight days duties performed commanding general to core one July nineteen forty three to eight September nineteen something unclear manner of performance superior F- Physical Activity Superior Physical Endurance Superior Knowledge of his profession superior for what command or duty would you specifically recommend him and army and then what opportunities have you had for observing him during period covered intimate daily contact. Does he rendered a willing and generous support to plans of superiors regardless of personal views. In the matter yes which is a very interesting topic to cover mean you think about what they've got in their physical duty not knowledge of his profession. What job would you recommend? Does he give generous supports to plans of superiors regardless of his personal views. No matter so this guy's going to back you up. The answer is yes and ten of all general officers of his grade. Personally known to you. What number would you give him on this list? And how many comprise your list and patterns answer is number one. I know all of them. Further remarks deemed necessary. None signed G. S. junior lieutenant general. Us Army commanded. So that's pretty awesome review. The interesting thing is if you know anything about the history of Bradley and Patton. There's some interesting dynamics. They first of all had very different personalities. Patent was you know flashy and go ego driven in a lot of ways and and Bradley was not and there's some quotes I pulled from patents journal Journals About Bradley. So it's interesting that he can have these right in that glowing like evaluation about him to try and get him promoted but at the same time here are some things he said about him. Bradley's to Conservative. He wants to wait until we can all jump into the fight together. By which time half our men will be. We'll have the flu trench foot. I wish he had a little more daring. Another one. Bradley is a good offer. Buddy utterly lacks it too bad. The IT Factor Echo Charles. Next one brag is a man of great mediocrity on the other hand. He has many attributes which are considered desirable. In general. He wears glasses which I have no idea I have no idea why. That's cool to be a general glasses. He has a strong jaw. He talks profoundly and says little and he is a shooting companion of our present chief of Staff. General Marshall also. He is a loyal man. I consider him to be among our better generals

And a Lieutenant gen Y needs to give me a copy of that. I don't think we brought it in let me get a copy of that draft. Anyways, we've got a general that in the military.

Senior military analysts Colonel Smith, and this is a lot of people contacted about I don't know how many sign onto the brief. And we have a final number on that a lot of folks of these are important, these memorials all over the country and you start removing them creates a whole host of problems. It does you set a precedent? If Maryland loses this case, and that cross is forced to be taken down, it impacts other monuments all across the nation, many of them on government property. This monument is almost one hundred years old is forty feet high. It has the names of the forty nine soldiers from that county who died in World War One. And yet Virginia the federal appeals court. There says that the the primary effect of the cross is endorsing religion, Maryland has countered that by saying is a secular message. A remembering those who died? Yeah. I mean, this is a one it's right outside Washington DC air planes. Berg, Maryland, a suburb of DC and Prince George's county and. When this issue first came to light. We just took a drive over and did some footage actually in front of it. It's get a roundabout. It's not it's not it's put it to video. Yeah. Again, what they try to describe. This is the fact that these become supreme court controversies are kind of shocked the conscience in the sense that again this western nearly one hundred years old. It was served in the first place really as a gravestone for World War One veterans because at that time period they were buried overseas. And so this is a place for families from Bladensburg so for that area to go and kind of acknowledge the war dead from their families that picture I will show you the people are seeing Facebook compares cope is from the from looking up. So it makes it even look bigger than it is it's it's not it's not so big when you're used to Washington. Yeah. Yeah. When you're used to Washington DC kind of monuments. That's not what is unique about it is the goodness. It has the word courage on it. The World War One there. They are. This was where they could go to pay tribute to those who whose bodies weren't returned. They were buried overseas at that time period, you're making a trip to Europe to a loved one's great was not not normal. And it says Valerie once I cur John the. Yeah. I mean, really I mean, it's, but it's at the supreme court in the United States. And I think it's probably I think we carry the day. But I I wouldn't be shocked if it's five four house would be shocked if it was nine year because some of these are so outrageous. We had that case involving the ten commandments monument. We won unanimously the supreme court, and then we talked about the Nativity scene issues last week, and there's been some movement on that time movement on Sunday should as an aside here we've been contacted by the. One of the publishers on this. We think is Buddhism teaching Buddhist teachings in the elementary schools. They contact it's and then we've done further digging and found out that in fact, the author of the one of the curriculums does not only a Buddhist, which is probably it's a free country. But his teacher is a Buddhist monk who incorporated this teaching and Eddie knowledge is that this infects the spiritual wellbeing of the student. Can you imagine? If it's a curriculum said, we're going to do the Lord's prayer, or we're going to do this shaimaa you. Which is the prayer that Jewish people say schmolly, Israel, Alejandro unoccupied. Okay. So that's the Jewish community or the Lord's prayer. And Misawa it helps you calm down. It helps you focus. I think all that true. But could you imagine what would happen if that was mandated in a public school system? But the good news is we heard from a lot of you on that. And we're we've got cases now. And there's one were school district is considering adopting the curriculum. We're hoping to get in there and get that down and get that stop the reason I'm encouraged about that is again, if you support the work of the ACLU, that's what we do. Let me encourage you to go to ACL J dot org. That's ACL J dot org. Good way to support the work. All right. Let's go ahead and take a phone. Call eight hundred six eight four thirty one ten nNcholas called it from Idaho online. One nNcholas welcome to jaysekulow live, high nNcholas. Well, I was calling in. Obamacare is actually one of the first times ever heard your radio station, and I'll tell you what he really. The country with that Obama can I was pretty young when he got in the office. And I guess I didn't follow politics as much as I do. Now. At the time was three hundred eighty five dollars a month. I was pretty young as twenty five years old. I started talking Tokyo made pretty good money. And everything was that. I could keep keep my agents all that stuff. Well, come to find out my premium went twelve hundred ninety seven dollars a month. How much would you went to how much was it? One hundred ninety seven dollars a month, the thirteen hundred dollars a month. For you, and your family are just you that was me and my family at the time was just me, and my wife and my daughter, and then we had a son in October and my premium. Didn't include dental or vision that was just health insurance. And then the fifteen thousand a year and my maximum out of pocket was fourteen thousand dollars. So by the time, I got done having my son between my premium my. Yeah. Almost forty. This is a prime example case, a a why this does not work does that work at all. It was his head a preview at three hundred dollars for about the did. Yeah. So regular healthcare was working for him. Of course, it wasn't now it's out of opened up across state line competition. It would have worked better. Here's the question though fan. And that is is there any realistic any possibility of this being address anytime soon to resolve this problem for the American people will I think there is Jay. But look the first step in any solution is going to be doing the damage that ObamaCare 'cause I mean, nNcholas stories repeated all across the country, the the regulations under ObamaCare title, one, which is all the regulations that it forced you to buy products that you didn't need inside your insurance policy. J that is what made the deductibles and premiums go through the roof. So, you know, the Hippocratic go talks about doing no harm first, we have to undo the harm of ObamaCare, remove those regulations and ease that burden on people like nNcholas, and then yes, you do need to fix it. West talked about a bipartisan compromise, I think that would happen j it's Lincoln happened upon which that might happen. Because I'm I'm having. I'm having trouble seeing it. Then well, it's not going to happen until all of those title one regulations that have now been ruled unconstitutional are out of the way that lowers the bulk of the problem, and then I think the framework in which you get a solution. You would have to get something in place for pre existing coverage. But until the regulations under ACA are removed J proposal like that's not going to move forward. That has to be the first step. Yeah. Harry, all I think is precisely correct because it's the regulations, and it's the rules which have driven the costs through the roof and have helped to raise the cost of deductibles. So that for many Americans insurance is now unaffordable so ObamaCare delivered results, but it delivered results in the opposite direction. That was allegedly proposed by our leaders in Washington. It is time folks free of sport the work the J, oh, this is the year end as.

Salomon Lisa page is telling and you reported this to Sarah that house investigators. That her boyfriend the FBI's most vehement anti Trump or biggest trumpeter Peter Struck didn't really believe that there was, any real evidence the President Trump had colluded. With the, Russians and the one FBI text, message on the probe shuttle alarm. Every American citizen and the piece goes on to say it's no longer in dispute that struck and page Holden animus for Donald Trump. Who was the subject of their Russia probe or that they openly discussed using, the powers of their office to stop Trump and then the insurance policy but stop them from becoming president the only question was whether any, official acts they took in the Russia collusion pro were driven by those sentiments and the. Justice department inspector, general now. Is endeavouring answer those questions but anyway he points out there, are just five words among the thousands of suggests.

Most painting contorted way that the message in fact referred to the quality of the Russia case according to multiple eyewitnesses in other words the admission is extraordinarily revealing inconsequential because that. Would mean, Rosenstein unleashed the most awesome abuse of power investigation of a special counsel to investigate analogous Nation that even trumpeting FBI officials thought there was no they're they're on and they're the ones.
