"Welcome back we're going to go to harmful online then I'm gonna go to study B. with thoughts on Facebook but in the meantime head over to race in in Milimani racing around with lieutenant governor Josh green hello good morning brother Rick all morning for taking my call lieutenant governor green on my question to you is well what the governor be all reconsider his stance on sanctuary state to get more support from the federal government all president trump was made a comment about the report that on to an offer help before the blue states would reconsider on the US secretary state that particular software thank you okay thank you very much a raisin our LG thank you Matt I don't think so I I don't think that he's got to make a decision in a pandemic like this on a a highly supercharged political question like that that will that will appear like he's being you know making a decision of the gun to his head and so he won't do that I you know I I understand that people have different opinions about that kind of thing but can damn X. or Christ you can't negotiate that way I'm not saying the president suggested directly that but that certainly would not be held our governor would act Scotty a Facebook live question yeah Aaron says we're still trying to get answers about dental offices a lot of offices are open and it bothers me that there's no guidance as to what kinds of safety measures should be taken a dental work creates aerosols so at the very least there should be medical grade air filtration within the building to protect both employees and patients additionally shouldn't staff be required to wear in ninety five mask to protect them from repeated possible exposure LG I couldn't hear any I think your body on the line I'm sorry could you repeat the question remained income for let's see I don't have the question in front of me but well how about the board do we need to have yeah I think just hit his own on his phone on mine on yours yeah okay there you go can you hear me now Josh yes okay well it was about dental offices and the Erin feels that there's no guidance as to what kinds of safety measures should be taken as their era souls that are created should they have medical grade air filtration within the building and shouldn't both employees and patients where protection including N. ninety five masks for those that work there okay great question should be easy that's what comprehensive guidelines and dental certainly should be wearing and ninety five that should the dental hi Janet wear them course the patient themselves will because the very nature of the procedures will not have masks on and I think it's more than adequate to have a a basic office surgical mask in the waiting rooms at the air air filtration is probably less effective than people think it's really about when you're in direct communication let me sixty with people if you're on math it's specially so people should proceed at their dental care here instead of a why again the probability that your dentist is one of the twenty nine people or whatever the number is very very small that either had a little bit and and also didn't recover it's it's minuscule if it's tiny and so I don't want people to worry that's just not going to be the way we end up spreading probative buddy are Dennis because you all know how much we love sitting in the dental chair and getting shot up with needles I do actually Mr that I love my dad but I was trying I was avoiding him before we got to go exactly just before break I just a question about consistency I especially for friends in the bar restaurant business I know in my travels in my travels are very limited I'm doing my best to stay close to home I want to do what to retail establishments and other areas it is clear that you have individuals that don't practice the social distancing occasionally no mass it several but they are within very close proximity to each other of how can that continue to go on and it has for quite some time in those establishments but we're negating specifically bars and even restaurants with hyper limitations or odd not being open at all it's really a question of the true nature of bars and bars have historically of course doctored very close contact close communication and the nature of of you know drinking means that people are are disinhibited and more likely to be close to one another without protection so March fall into it you category where you're at higher risk as opposed to let me distinguish between interesting comparison churches again very social very important very critical in our lives but people are not getting evidence and therefore if it was even though the large numbers of people sitting in queues are near one another and needing to be in contact at the likelihood was lower it was more controlled situation so that the distinction I do hope that we can get part of the open personally and and club it's just it's gonna have to be highly highly carefully monitored and that's not the usual nature of bars if I'm being candid you know that this is not the kind of place will be like to have people poking around in our business so it's the nature of a of a international global pandemic that's really hurting them we've had other questions if you could repeat your contact information Josh eight seven nine three seven oh nine nine one that's my cell once again with lieutenant governor Jeff green we have a short break at the bottom of the hour for news and information but gratefully will return with Josh green until the top of the hour Dr lieutenant governor George green returns with us in a moment V. aids traffic.

"It's a pleasure to do a welcome back on the year lieutenant governor Josh green my friend how you doing good record your voice yes could you connect again it's been a it's been a little while yeah he you know in the world a co victims like a blink it's hard to it's hard to be on the talking but like with my friends because there's just a lot of information shared the dais yeah gotcha gotcha he got you one I'd like to we're going to invite our friends to join us but once I switched off with a a little perspective and maybe you can help me understand this a little bit better I'm gonna go back to may third and and by the way thank you for all your video presentations there the most informative of place that we can visit necklace this is may third of a month ago we reported at the time we had two new cases a total of six hundred and twenty two cases a very gently we did suffer one fatality that brought us to the number we are now seventeen you had mentioned in your report quoting significant reduction of virus in our state you had mentioned that eighty seven point three percent had recovered and according again that look forward to opening some businesses this week are there were a total of thirty two thousand nine hundred and eighty two tests that were taken now we are at June third and my newest numbers and correct me if I'm wrong but another case reported total of six hundred and fifty three lowest lowest percentages in the in in in the country we now have ninety six percent recovery over eighty seven point three six hundred and nine auto six hundred and thirty five have of recovered we have forty nine thousand five hundred and eight tested we had a total of one hundred and thirty one cases over one month dramatic the numbers over that period of time so I guess the basic question is why so long in re opening and in may we were talking about looking forward to businesses opening at that time yeah it's very very frustrating for me and you and had lots of friends the the truth that those numbers are all a hundred percent accurate and an interesting right we have not had now fatality in exactly a month which is wonderful we've also had an exact average of one case per day which is excellent we really need to be opened across all businesses with the single exception may be of the high risk large event and I'm talking about like concerts conventions and so on which there are ways to do that by the way was we should talk about even bars and restaurants as long as we have some semblance of social different thing in maps wearing we should be able to find a way and I just wrote an email actually to bill and others about getting together and talking better about bars and and clubs and restaurants right now we have almost no viral load in the state so our rates are very very low as long as people work out which decrease described by about seventy five percent for the new study I had a good time and I'm gonna worry about will be later once we open up to the mainland and and Asia that's likely going to come you know for six eight weeks out we can talk about that but right now we're at our lowest ebb of of the Kobe nineteen virus so everybody should be working that possibly can be because then they have a sense of self and they have the resource and money in their pocket so you're I think you're right on the mark about that talking with the lieutenant governor George Greene if you'd like to join us five to one eighty three eighty three Burford to Joshua a may twenty fifth news reports and the headline was a lieutenant governor hopes to reopen tourism industry by July and that's the quote that's the headline on the report we do have the announcement for June fifteenth for interisland quarantine to be lifted there's been a lot of information provided by good friends like Hawaiian airlines how that will be affected but the governor said July thirty first but never has given a date at all for a international travel or mainland travel any wood cited that the first that should be able to arrive to Hawaii our friends from Japan New Zealand and Australia right and this to be our required a negative covert nineteen test results in order to in this up the pursuit of that has been going on for quite a while especially congressman that case trying to work with the FAA FAA and others why have we not Josh got it leased a target date that we can shoot for so the tourism industry can prepare and do the necessary work they need to do okay the reason is that they think I wanted to do the target date open up inter island travel first to put all the protocols in that form which is by the way not very expensive it's it's a one page one half page form very very simple combined with having the thermal screeners at the airport multiple sites for temperature checks and testing our capacity all of that you wanted to have in place and you know the guy was very cautious and and very very process oriented yeah I don't think it's a surprise when people see me being a little bit more aggressive about the our guy but the plan was to get that up going into that now we do have that date which I'm glad for we we could we could quibble not you and I but others about whether we were ready say on the first of June versus the sixteenth of June but be that as it may it set the stage for opening up international travel and I do believe we'll be able to do travel with Japan and Japan bubble and also like New Zealand Australia if we choose to do it before the mainland and the mainland of course is going through some pretty tough time in make in that combined heat of the summer the the you know the fatality of Mister Mister Floyd and then protest so when all that's going on I'm just being planted when you got it an outbreak of a of a virus the coronavirus it's gonna spread more so it may very well be that there's no set that back a little bit with the mainland but it does not affect the court's pan pan represent twenty percent of all of our our travelers anyway and thirty percent of all the economic I can't really get from tourism so though I'd love to be able to bring back everyone safely on the same day just bursting with planning maybe that Japan come sooner and there's rumors all around that will do Japan sometime in July I can't really confirm them because I am not the source of those rumors I'm just hearing that a lot so you know my expectation is inter island travel opens on the sixteenth each fire cycle it's too we always think of things in terms of two week blocks and another two week block that's when you can accept pretty pretty intelligently whether or not there's any extra rest so part of that has to be tied to the tourism industry all right let's take hotels for a moment hotels reportedly will not open their doors until they have enough K. occupancy rate of at least twenty percent that is the absolute break even in order to achieve that after being closed down for so long it's almost like you're re opening or opening a new property it's going to take set up it's going to take marketing and it's going to take a green light for the quarantine to have a defined ending date the longer that ending date is put out an out and out they are not able to market their properties to bring in a sufficient number to open employee people and get back in an economic condition so I guess my point is the longer the governor does not have an established state given what we've accomplished since may third and are continuing he is further decimating an injury in our economy which is already going to be at about twelve percent less and a sixty seven percent drop in tourism and each week that goes by L. G. talk to our friends it's it's it is so injurious to them it's true and I don't really dispute all that I mean I know people are getting crushed economically and and that's why I constantly push to open sooner but keep in mind that they opening is more reflection now of what's going on elsewhere and in some ways left a reflection of how successful we've been we we did have to of course set up the standards of the airport and so on and I'm Billy didn't encouraged by what Alaska dealing with which their plant planted the test everybody before they get in there yeah but in the look weak opening up for for interisland activity is a no brainer right there's just no virus that's circulating practically all our viral load below are our rates are super duper love so that is good but doesn't inject any extra money into our state although there will be vacations and that's very good for getting people up Jamie and I are going to do a family vacation just to spend our money here of course but the and I'd like to go there I like to thank you for inviting me to go with you and I'd be delighted yes that's yeah you're going to cover a luncheon okay great I'll cover the room nine AM they think he is definitely we're just worried that we guess we don't want to get a spread from the mainland and have to shut down again I mean that that that that would be the biggest tragedy of all so as many people as we can encouraged you test before they come here and then have a multi multi layered system at the airport which is going to be in place between thermal scanners multiple temperature temperature check a ton of data that we get so we can treat people very effectively will book we posted our team up the trade to three hundred twenty at the department of health all these things are going to do it and then active surveillance testing meaning random tests at the airport that we will be encouraging people to do will also give up ninety eight week over week endeavor day and month over month whether there are cases coming in from the mainland or Asia that's all going to be the solution and that will be how we keep a lid on it but it's it's of course difficult to know exactly what the impact of having travelers coming to Hawaii here's gonna be without testing them so that's that's why can we talk about that so much and why I think it's central to opening our economy it's also the key to really opening up safely and even more robustly than you expect I do not think it's going to be five years starts for the numbers return I think it's going to be like five months more likely because there's such a huge pent up demand to come to a safe place and and Hawaii in general talking with lieutenant governor Josh green Josh if folks would like to connect with you where's the best place well they can text me on my cell nine three seven oh nine nine one nine three seven nine nine nine one I think checked only because if I get on a call just difficult to get out of meetings but if I'm if I'm available or even remotely free I will get right back to people and of course you know emails and what have you but that's my personal number and I hope people will use it when their emergencies an emergency situation please call detective you're pissed off because I'm also pissed off and up to being picked up together it's gonna you know create a conflict but I do want to help everybody as an individual I appreciate that George will continue very short break but returned right with you calls to at five to one eighty three eighty three lieutenant governor Josh green right after this V. aids traffic.

"Truth your feeling better you're doing well you sound good on the radio and all they can tell you is that you be patient but I think it would be your being critical of yourself but all it takes is a better day for you is a better day than almost everybody else will have your back thank you so much I that means a great deal Stephen thank you thank you panel so I'm just forgive me if you interested that that we're going to redo a little earlier but what what in your opinion is it gonna take to get the airline industry up and running my my thought is my homie that didn't get anybody out enough to fly is to have people certified tested negative before they get on the plane we hear a lot about the the call it has seen in a box the one that takes only five to ten minutes and they can do it on site so I'm wondering I don't know practice it that is but to my mind it's the only way to get people confident enough to fly and then for some reason we want the airline industry up and running and so I'm just curious as to how you think we can get everything going in and out but this also goes for the cruise industry in a year and thank you yeah much appreciation thank you yes quite a few people including just a do you have your guests to lieutenant governor George green they they they he enjoyed a lot of things on the on the body analysis and all and I think that there is not necessarily a bad thing is definitely a good thing because it gives you some certainty although they say that even if you have that divides you don't necessarily have immunity and you may be having antibodies because you're still fighting and you can still be contagious so that a lot of the issues that they're not really addressed by these tests but I think that if the re opening of airlines depends on and medical clearance the answer is a deal with a dead on arrival there's just you know if you think about the traveling volume and I'm not talking about how why because this is not made about how whites made for the travelling volume around the world are we're talking about you know millions of people flying per day there's no capacity to do this thing I mean it is barely capacity due to to check the passport and put a stamp on it if you have to introduce a medical test even if it's forty eight hours in advance hi again but what is that if something like that passes via let's say Congress and other countries which have the required to fly it's going to be a Brave New World because you know it's going to be two three years of stagnation until all these things pick up and I was joking with a friend that if this comes around we we we should throw all our money into testing equipment and laboratories I mean invested there because of that the number of the borders have to go has to go ten times up or something we need to to cover the volume he favorited traveler has to have a health certificate in order to travel I mean imagine is like all of the trouble is that we have today they have to take a blood test it is there's not a price for that is this is the same thing we've got to what we're going to expand and sees the unemployment crisis in in getting you know they're they're filing no no government operation is made to a particular say small hole Y. to to accommodate two hundred fifty thousand people the next day and that's a good way to go calling to ask for the airport the airport has already listed in the order of a hundred thousand right daily arrivals are more up to handle that even the even then technology for taking temperatures and all of course is optimized in Asia it's going to be very expensive and but is only a quick scan if you stop them to actually record temperature reported on the passport of put it on a traveling document and on and on and on all of these will be significant impediments and we're going to face essentially what we faced with when we have after nine eleven all the TSA requirements in huge lines in huge Lasix surgery again two three years until the system reaches a new equilibrium and it has new capacity etcetera to handle a decent volume now that addresses what does Stephen brought up the regulatory environment because if this is actually regulated and you have to do it then we have to do it so we will have significant capacity problems you simply cannot process people you know and the the the right now after TSA laughter did nine eleven and TSA we remedy but you said you have to be at the airport two to four hours in advance depending on the type of flight what is going to be now five to six hours in advance for all the testing center again and that's the regulatory in the operational part the other on the day mentioned earlier was the perception on the part of how many people will be willing for us to go through this and then you know we'll go into a metal cube for five hours in order to fly to a far away place all right now this is not a problem I have a friend in in Charlotte North Carolina and the eastern seaboard flights some of them are twenty percent full but some of them are eighty percent full then people are posting on you know on Facebook or whatever in the media pictures of you know absolutely no social distancing their their existence sensually crime defender playing is eighty percent full it's pretty much close to capacity so it is very crowded with everything so apparently people are still do fly in they don't have the fear and also it is possible that if there are no significant regulatory impediments all flights could resume because you know ninety percent of the population or whatever the person is feels very good I'm not particularly worried about because they're not in the demographic or they have been sick already and that they they have recovered and they they feel confident about it multiple reasons we haven't seen that in China the that's one a case study I mean the economist published a profile so follow the highways and other means are doing and he looks at the old machine forms of transportation other than highways now they have a huge history says that at about thirty percent of what their peak one southern thirty percent of the methods used less than thirty percent of the airlines had used the freeways industry system has recovered to above the fifty percent level of what they used to have before their call the need but damage situation in China so if you look at economies they said that this may have been in one scared like nine eleven and it's going to be a V. shaped recovery so we hit the bottom and suddenly suddenly hit the bottom and suddenly we're going to go up and recover it doesn't look like that is going to be at best thank you or it could be it's just a protracted kind of slow climb to normalcy we had the I have take a break post sars I H. one N. one at center at center if there is a release and there's promising information about whether it's a vaccine whether it's a driving whatever that if that point the declaration by the organisation CDC WHL that declares this is the vaccine similar to what we fix we'll show flows and once that's announced I think that's the only thing at this point right that will instill widespread confidence is so strict that were okay however I see that the hi what we're employing today will continue in there may be a requirement for masks from now on the alliance of just instituted mandatory for everybody not only the crew I think that there will be more space that economically is disastrous for airline right the only listed strong again right right that they'll have to lose seats in cruise ships you know that's going to be right and even if there is a declaration that this is the vaccine and this will kill that virus aside from that I don't know what else to do right that's what it's all it's it's a multipronged single unfortunately that the vaccine is going to be the long protracted process even if it was invented in approved today they're expecting at least one year for full ramp up in availability the other interesting thing hi and thank you to be better of more bad news regarding that vaccine this darn thing then this sounds cold too seems to be mutating so it has different I don't know I'm not an expert tentacle so just like the flu it's the H. E. B. B. M. and other variants of flu so you get the vaccine but then you got the vaccine for a with a little bit of B. but then another strand comes up and you know you can still get the flu so unfortunately with all these viruses there is no certainty of course it gives it gives a perception of any medical better outcome and better chances but it's not in one hundred percent solution yeah it could have been better if we got some you're like a what was it the avian flu and then and Carrefour Tamiflu Tamil flow what kind of flu yes that was that well these are starting it is in the V. or something I forget the exact name this seems to be a better bet than their clerking mean that's that's that is and again some medicine some treatments and then a partial vaccine that it'll change out on the lot if you want to join in please do so we're together with finals until eight o'clock this morning and you are dialed in together newsradio eight thirty K.

"Coming up Ryan and his friends. Corruption grows alongside their power. Now back to the story by Nineteen Ninety Illinois. Lieutenant Governor George Ryan had devoted himself to climbing the state's political ladder as far as he possibly could perhaps even all the way up to the office of governor but the first step was to win the secretary of State election with the help of his campaign manager Scott. Farewell Farewell was fiercely loyal to his candidate in Ryan. Farewell saw his ideal future. He too had aspirations to climb the ranks in Illinois and perhaps even beyond plus they were both boisterous friendly. Good Ole boys. They understood each other with say well at his side Ryan easily won the bid for Secretary of State Ryan was ecstatic and he was grateful to the friends who helped him get here. It seems only fair to offer his closest associates coveted positions in his new administration. Fay will for one stayed on as Ryan's personal adviser Long. After his initial campaign ended his role was nebulous. It was never clear to outsiders exactly what he did but that was the idea because farewells main job was to help Ryan. Finagle little extra money at a state contracts. Another old friend of Ryan's Larry Warner helped with the contract. Rigging Warner was a kindred spirit of Ryan's the two knew each other from Kankakee. He started out with similar political ambitions to Ryan but found working in the private sector much more lucrative as a businessman and lobbyist warner became an invaluable asset to the governor. He knew exactly who needed a big money. Government contract and what they'd be willing to pay up in return to be clear Warner didn't hold an official position on Ryan staff with what he was up to the less paper trail the better. The gift began the moment. Ryan became secretary of State. Most of utilities in Ryan's offices were contracted out to one particular company. For example all their computers were provided by Honeywell. Right after taking office Ryan's Transition Team told Honeywell that the computers were too old and needed to be replaced immediately. Honeywell was more than willing to upgrade the equipment but Warner's stepped in and told them that if they wanted the new contract to be approved. They'd have to hire him on is the company's lobbyists and of course pay his two hundred fifty thousand dollar. Lobbying fee the honeywell representatives balked. They tried to negotiate. But Warner wouldn't play ball. He didn't have to. He'd already offered a similar deal to IBM and they took it. Warner was brought on as IBM's lobbyist with a hefty three point five percent commission on the revenues from any contracts he secured with the Secretary of State's office. The contract in question amounted to twenty six million dollars by the time all was said and done warner received over a million dollars from. Ibm This is only one example of a scheme that would play out over and over again. Throughout Ryan Warner's careers. It was profitable for everyone except of course the state of Illinois rigging contracts wasn't Warner's only game as early as nineteen eighty two. He was involved in another scheme so petty. It's almost hard to wrap your head around. Vanity license plates to the Illinois. Elite having a single digit license plate was the ultimate status symbol. It was rare difficult to obtain an utterly useless. This is a time honored tradition. The license plate number one had been passed around between high profile citizens since nineteen thirty nine despite this silliness or perhaps even because of it people were willing to pay for the lowest number plates available during Ryan's tenure. Many of these special plates ended up on the cars of his closest personal friends or campaign contributors. This vanity plates scheme is not in itself a massive violation of the public's trust but it is symptomatic of a cancer that festered in the States Automotive Licensing System in Illinois even the DMV is corrupt in Illinois. The facilities that issued driver's licenses are operated by the secretary of state and more directly they were overseen by the Inspector General Dean Bauer. Bauer was yet another old friend of Ryan's from Kankakee. The very basic function of his job was to prevent corruption within the State's licensing system. What he actually did was the complete opposite. Bauer went around to the states licensing facilities with envelopes. Full of tickets for Ryan's fundraisers. These tickets often went for hundreds of dollars per head. He made it clear to the facility. Managers that it was their job to sell every single one of these.

of grey in your hair good had a it's about time this is what is what is what is necessary yeah I was it was a Molly Ivins called you governor yeah Molly gave me that I was not arrested well she was always compliment me really how you know it's just after after a while you just grow pretty thick skin and go about your business if you know here's how you got a look at it if somebody's not criticizing your protest in yet then you're probably not making a difference right right yeah so I kind of looked at it as a back handed compliment was it tough to come in as governor when your predecessors now in one house not really I I always highly respected George W. bush so and you know we we only work together for two years and I spent my my whole you know I will say adult life but my whole political life in the Texas political you know I was in state house member and I was the agriculture commissioner so I had what is at eight six fourteen years worth of being prepared to be the lieutenant governor and that's been a couple years lieutenant governor George W. gets elected president I elevate up in and then I stay in that roll for fourteen years so you know I was very well prepared and I made all my mistakes back earlier I told folks I've made every mistake everybody else mater probably more mistakes but I did them early in my political career I don't have quite the spotlight that say George Debbie had because he kind of went from you know it from ninety four on the note yeah ninety eight was at your toughest race against John sharp no the toughest race actually was in nineteen ninety against Jim Hightower nobody knew me we didn't have a chance you know this is the god let the democratic ticket for a two election cycles eighty two and then eighty six and so on ninety the idea that I was going to come in and and be the this very established very popular in the Democrat party great almost all other guy willing he he was he was a he he and kinky were the

we were in the same outfit at a and M. and we had a we had a divorce over that election cycle and unfortunately a couple of years later I ran into I mean I I recognize that I you know being mad at somebody and and keeping a grudge is such a caustic thing because you won well yeah that's helpful I guess the the fact is my faith taught me that you got to forgive people and it we did I've I call him as a man who has a coffee this and I you know I sedate just I need to bury the hatchet with you life's too short and we became better friends than we ever were before and he helped me on a big project tax reformation number in in six and then I asked the board of regents to bring over a and M. and and he's done a fabulous job over there so and we're still great friends the most popular

"lieutenant governor george" Discussed on The Erick Erickson Show
"Editions track phone dot com good morning and welcome it is Eric Erickson here. This rainy Halloween further west in the state the relator is going to be but they're saying now the rain should be done by about six again is going to join me at ten o'clock Georgia's Lieutenant Governor to talk about a lot of people are buzzing about impeachment and realclearpolitics has the name on revealing the personality of the person what have you I I the person is very much a partisan democrat I I darting every which way squirrel there are so many shop of the dog which is just crazy but I ticks this year it is the ad from the president it aired last night nationals in their world series the nationals wound up winning listen to this ad if and you factoring jobs cutting illegal immigration in half of Blida Rating Isis it's not stopping Donald Trump he's mister nice guy but sometimes it takes Donald Trump to change Washington I think that's going to be the campaign message for the Republicans that's going to be a significant issue I suspect that's going also a lot of people don't like the president and they may not like the president but if he's getting I try to do an outline of what do I want to talk about what do I think are the big stories or for example the Lieutenant Governor George comes on but there are things you need to know out of the gate this morning and has ever run an ad this early for general election desperate that's that's not it at all that is reading the President's syndrome that they're going to be people who they can't see the forest for the trees people not be able to honestly assess what's happening because a lot of Democrats and he must be desperate he must be district he's running campaign in an ad during the world series when who is watching Texas and senators there and congressman who were engaged in impeachment he's got half the Washington a couple of signals there will be the vote later today on impeachment in the House representatives lose versus how many Republicans do they gain and the going wisdom right now in Washington gene members of the House of Representatives who are leaving many of them do not like president trump many has depth he relies on others they gave him bad advice some of them actually may want strict democratic leaning See what he does but there are Democrats there are Democrats even in new how many of the Democrats take a walk they don't WanNa vote for it they don't WanNa vote ad and you'll have to forgive me I don't mean to offend but I if to challenge him he's daring Republican senators to come after him he's got the money to spend gene at the Republican National Committee some of these House and Senate campaigns and the in our sc the national republican and the president is spending money in these swing districts dare you to defy me the Republicans come after you see this is one of the things here that the Republicans are behind did the house does it matter as much everyone already knows that that's one of the issues here in Georgia we'll get into the the voter suppression story but we know for certain that Republican turnout in Georgia eighteen they turned out onto midterm level and Democrats stayed enraged and engaged in summary I think this plays into that Ben Shapiro story I I want to spend a little more time on it here but just in even see the metal has a pawprint instead of a real middle of honor symbol and the media went nuts and the media would nuts over the New York Times at an entire story that this is gotta I've inquired into the White House as to whether or not the dog was escorted in without the daily where I mean the media proving their buffoonery and their partisanship by going after the president because the Washington Post that called Baghdadi on an austere religious a photo shop this was this really a photoshop how did they obtain the picture why did they do this they are out to get the president. CNN actually has a piece today cells that their daring to say in public that things are only supposed to whisper in private it's like a rock in the actually a campaign thing that can win you know this is one of the things that every town USA did suburbs to go against the president the soccer upstate want the gun regulations and we and of course the media's like yeah we've been working our butts off for a decade trying to get going to rush out to all the other Democrats are you willing to stand up with Bella rugged confiscate folks yes they will vaporize you if you try to keep your guns now is not the time we better not highlight this issue we better not ask the Democrats is it an interesting juxtaposition because they know it would be politically damaging they've convinced themselves gun control is not world series is a sign that the president is weak and he's trying to build his favorability right he doesn't care about whether people like him or not he cured job is changing Washington oy their terrorist leader dead but the Democrats would rather focus on impeachment to Donald Trump and I approve this message president he's no mister is nervous or upset this is the media believing their own spin their they can define themselves he can define himself without the media interfering he Shington insane. I'm here I'm here I'm so I'm being told if you're if awesome wasted that but I've been broadcasting the show on facebook live and I live I mean the show is live nine to noon every weekday you should be here we'll even be be bringing other radio show I guess I should say I do every year a Good Friday I had never worked anywhere where you had to work on Good Friday and I told him if I'm GonNa work on Good Friday is the day Jesus died on the Cross Black Friday is the day the stores open that's really did I decided most important day in human history and the reason they do is because in Western civilization and now actually even eastern civilization when you see what's happening in China and Southeast Asia Volley in in the immediate officer okay with it but in the upper echelon hey did the idea Russian for having let me do that and now they make me do it every year and now they make me a holiday music in those in as well anyway they just random aside here to the stupid dog that Oh okay so the president gave the Medal of honor to photo and photo shopped out the veteran and I and the media is having a genuine meltdown at the president for retweeting tweeted it out and said American hero a reporters went nuts Steve Herman from Voice of America for later today for an active duty Green Beret I kid you not a White House officials said the dog is not in the White House and the New York Times president the president shared appears to be an altered photo I kid you not these Lieutenant Governor Jeff Duncan is going to join me to talk about his efforts to about President trump since sixteen I'm one of the few that I know who aren't going to vote for him now who voted for then the reason I ask you is actually pretty election with seventy thousand votes a now he lost the popular vote to be line And when we look in Wisconsin Michigan Pennsylvania in two thousand okay but he is behind so as George W Bush in two thousand four in a number of states he had one John Carey was ahead of George W Bush pretty significantly and Blewett as this thing where the president only one by seventy thousand votes in those three and I guess my issue here is we that all of America's against Donald Trump and that's not really true and it's harder we are all of us every single one of us is to some degree inside a bubble I'm just gifts handed him like for example the Arizona Democratic Party Kanipura leaving the White House and has aligned himself with Isis is vote for civility vote for president used not align himself the Democratic Party share in Arizona and is allied with Isis and has aligned himself with Isis he's manipulating it's his White House he's allied or aligned with Isis events matter I say this all the time and I'm record this because I can feel a tirade come in will actually ate a dissertation if you will sure Nixon was elected the media began running stories that demography matters due before the Watergate fallout and Publican days were numbered Jimmy Carter happened in the media Aha see reelection a Republican in city of a bunch of Progressive Democrats because he made the city we've gone to the message of Watergate the collapse of the Republican Party in the nineteen eighty-four it was morning again in America the economy had rebounded Minnesota in Washington DC events mattered George H W Bush the Democrats wanted to run against him Mario Cuomo the chosen man to run for the Democrat in two thousand there was elgin he was a wooden term president hold your breath and be patient people Barack Obama got elected in two thousand eight and who's this is finally going all obamacare mattered he won reelection in two thousand twelve but you know what happened in two thousand sixteen hurt a yeah except people are leaving the states that helped Hillary in Florida the state the Non Cuban Hispanic voters who were reliably supposed to be Democrats would start the formal open impeachment processes and discover that the president of the United States was stay home or we could find out this is absolutely nothing the Senate in the Senate decides that they're not going to be in January you know what by November we will be two billion demography if we let it be charted on demography and there's plenty of data that the demographics the Federal Reserve has cut interest rates again the interest rates going down it's May keep us out of recession as the rest of the world goes into a recession if the president of the United States can back to work those events will matter people lose their jobs those events will matter we have no idea right does now say I'm not GonNa vote for him I know a lot of people who are just because the opposition to Donald trump is a louder does not is GONNA lose in two thousand sixteen and when he won you know what they did they didn't have any recognition of humility but just because they're louder and angrier today does not mean there are more of gene he's not doing well in those states but you know what the election whatever happened to growth and she's back in the news today she turned down a prize said environmentalists don't need anymore prizes so there but the Democrats don't actually care about them because they've stopped talking about him but nothing's changed there's been no new out of the news cycle whatever happened to this other border did he get fixed as it's still bad is it improving they moved on from it must not help the Democrats anymore before that there was a government shutdown before that there was remember the North Korean summit we actually met with North Korea North Koreans were thinking of coming here the president we had a trade ask three months who can keep up or will we be so far into another new cycle that people will have totally forgotten that that had happened the president is beating them up with his campaign worchester finding them before they can define themselves and people in demography people will stay home Douar families fled from in central and South America. We don't want it here we may not vote Republican but we're going to but when you listen in Washington DC today everything is about the president we've taken a sidetrack from impeachment over to the Photoshop of a dog with the president now they're back to impeachment and an impeachment will probably end in January when it goes to the and we'll have all moved on our kids will make it through another year in school they may not we may completely forget next year what happened this year in fact right now on their job on their family on other things the new cycle away from the election and there's a lot of new cycles between now and then will it work I don't know there are a lot of people don't like the president is going to be hard and that'll be a message that resonates with people events will matter way really story no no to them it was a story and that's part of the problem they generate so many stories there's less and more and more people check on politics and it becomes the partisans take away their guns in taxes than there are Democrats that matters to yeah as a appear to three three seven seven seven I'll tell you how to get your sweet potato pie to not be stringing the Georgia Senate and in fact to pick up Senate seats in Georgia I think we'll be able to do I want to set the stage with McCarthy if you ask the American public they WANNA see nothing wrong they had a phone call on July twenty fifth the the money was hiring through this you know why they continue to keep an Intel and not judiciary because oh they're probably going to put it back in addition you know they they actually did all up and now they don't know where to go but you know this is going to become I think the prevailing because it was closed door it was illegitimate they stormed it to highlight that it was closed door so the Democrats does it now the Republican talking point is going to be it's a good win.
"lieutenant governor george" Discussed on KHVH 830AM
"Six of the morning we wish you the warmest of aloha thank you very much for being with us here on news radio a thirty K. three eight. don't have a little bit later on we will revisit nine eleven during the nine o'clock hour I hope that you will join us at that time as well. in the meantime though as we've been chatting about and leading up to this morning we have lieutenant governor John screen who is in studio with us and we appreciate. the LG being with us in studio to take your telephone calls and to share remarkable information that's that's taking place my friend it is good to see you here you too thanks for having me I love it it is a pleasure indeed I will start with what we started with nine eleven Josh your remembrances your thoughts well I see I think we're all still heart broken that we lost thousands of our citizens I was sitting in my living room starting to get telephone calls we are here in Hawaii already of course none my mom was in visiting and I remember turning on the TV and seeing the plane hit the tower I was born in New York so I have some connection to you know the state I had a friend who was working in one of the towers and I immediately thought about him and whether or not he was gonna die and I remember thinking at that moment everything's changed no matter what going forward and then the reality starts setting in so it it tells us that we have to be strong as Americans we have to. mindful of our security no matter what and I think it it was a shock to the system the the whole event so but mostly I just sad that we lost those people and my friend wasn't in the tower yet just wasn't work yet otherwise he would have died with everybody else so amazing to to see that it did shift our direction for decades sure to thank you for that very much indeed I also want to thank you for the diligent work that you're performing in the office of lieutenant governor. not to bring up anybody who has served previously but it's refreshing it's it's invigorating to see we're gonna share some information that many people may not be aware of that you're taking the lead on that has implications for assault and will definitely spend time in just a moment do is start though because it is so very top of mine it is T. M. T. there've been announcements of from the fifth floor along with the mayor Kim and we're starting to hear a little bit more about what the possibilities are of negotiations before we do that love to get your take just a summary of events and then where are we today in regard to the search I so appreciate that I and I just appreciate you asking I boy where to start so. T. M. T. it's about hurt and it's about process since about law that's about all those things which people are having a really smart discussion about in every corner of the state also the Hawaiian community is empowering itself in an unique way by coming together for good or ill from some perspectives for others but I I like to see people engage in process even if it's protest slash protection. engaging is healthy I'm not saying it's healthy to stop a big project that's a different question I went up on the mountain after doing one of my E. R. shifts early in the process and I knew it would raise some eyebrows I went up there simply to see if people were okay. I want to see some of my family members as you know half my family is Hawaiian Japanese on my wife's side so my uncle Frankie for instance was up on the mountain and some of the kuna and our law enforcement agents I went straight to them to hug them and thank them also for doing their job even though it's a difficult one to make sure everyone was OK because one of the things I feel as a doctor in as your lieutenant governor is we can't afford to have harm come to anyone whether it's someone who's up there doing protection slash protest or one of our officers to god for bid because that. in other places like Kent state across the country years ago left decades of I hurt and it can cause a psychological rift in societies that would not be productive in any way that could hurt our relationships with the Hawaiian community it could hurt our economy it could lead to mass protests I believe none of those things are good for anybody so I want to go see the people are safe and okay I also don't want to actually pick a side because I understand the hurt of the Hawaiian people going back many decades and I know people don't want in many cases to revisit that but it's there and so I wanted to be mindful of that and I also wanted to talk with the leadership there and the experienced people who have been around for a long time so that I better understood where they were going because I figure this is kind of a living organism the conflict on the mountain I know that mayor came in that governor would like to resolve something I don't know if there's a compromise that awaits us but that would be in everyone's interest and I'd say I don't think it's a surprise because around coffee shops in the state at the state capitol wherever I go people are bouncing ideas off of me of what if we did this could we do that right what if we compromise here could we get that compromise what if we change management we'll talk about all these things and I think that we are all one oh Hana here in spite of the conflict that's going on right now and as long as there's not blood shed I'm still optimistic that we can move forward because I'll close with this and you can dive into me I think we have to do big projects in the state of Hawaii whether their science projects big road projects some big projects are going to occur and we have to do them right we have to do them in a way that they don't get bogged down that we don't have losses and that most everybody buys in not everyone buys a wreath on the rail which is super controversial. but we do have a future of big projects we just have to do them smarter and I think that because there was pretty objective. lack of promises kept on the part of the university in management. the people up there that are protecting pro testing they had a beef how we resolve it with the bank but that is kind of where I am as to what the enforcement will be I'm honestly not privy to what move may go on to either negotiate and finalize any kind of deal or to don to deal more law enforcement I just don't think that we should I personally don't think we should use any law enforcement where people could get harmed on either side is that we won't forgive ourselves more. when we do the program. the I had two colors on either side of the issue yes there seems to be a bit of agreement common ground it's on the other side of the issue where it's polarizing. and on the one side there are those that say listen this is the United States of America we are a nation of laws protesting is encouraged by our constitution first amendment freedom of speech right however we are a nation of laws once we cross over from the protest side into the violation of law side then that's where we get a lot of this format on the other hand it is the acknowledgement that the native Hawaiian community has faults that have been put upon them that there has been historically great issue in the marginalization. and that this is. a unifying moment for the native point committee which has been so fractious in so many ways and so many years right in this is a. solidifying time yes. to find a compromise I mean I think Chinese arithmetic might be easier to do try to do this. but you mentioned the university yeah it appears that that is it leased the apex where the conversation and perhaps a resolution can happen right yeah so is very wise what you just said actually I I always trust your judgment but that is one of the most balanced things I've heard descriptions of the circumstance yes okay first of all and we saw in the paper today so I think it's fair to talk about that without putting words into anyone's mouth then John Mayer Kim is proposing a change in the management structure I think everyone agrees that that's a good thing I not to not to dismiss they will the work that the universe has tried to do but it has not worked out and there there are questions receded land our revenues to go to the Hawaiian people and they should go properly like contracts by exist we believe in contracts like you say we believe in law so that is absolutely something that should be done changing the management would go a long way for many people and I think you and I are are well enough aware that some people no matter what even if even if their intentions are good we're not gonna agree with whatever solution occurs. but that's the starting point it would be meaningful. my opinion as to a guy not as lieutenant governor not as as a doctor I worked as a doctor on that island and still do for twenty years now going on twenty years is that. good faith efforts gestures right up front would help I think that no question management change makes a lot of sense mostly away from the university I think also you have to really strongly consider. expediting the removal of already planned decommission scopes that's the kind of thing I would use an emergency proclamation for to get school so you're gonna get out of there anyway get him out of there because when I was up on the mountain and in many conversations with different cop who's in and come who was an and leaders of all stripes and enforcement. you know how it is with human beings if we show good faith and we live up to our plans. then people feel better and then it's way easier to get along and it's way easier to make compromises I don't know if that compromise in any way and that being a smooth move to some more strong to me but it just the common sense person in me says if you remove the better part of five telescopes and aren't going to be used going forward a lot of people would accept that that is a good faith gesture and then a lot of other things fall into place we could talk about partner white homelands in getting that straight there are eighty thousand acres on the Big Island that need to be moved because we've already committed in that way to the one community. so people have housing so people can have assets and resolve some little differences so these the things that need to be done and my feeling is expediting those things at least make it infinitely more possible to find common ground talking with the lieutenant governor George green we're already at seven seventeen a time for a traffic update unlike folks to go ahead and jump in if you'd like to chat with the LG now is the perfect time at five to one eighty three eighty three we hope that you will plenty on the agenda with Josh and you don't wanna miss out it's a matter of fact will continue on this tack but also reveal some great information that you need to know we'll do it right after the V. A.'s traffic.
