"mattis" Discussed on 10% Happier with Dan Harris

"And then the last thing is hope. I always read that as like a twisting of the knife, you know? It's like, oh yeah, we're gonna give you all this horrible stuff. And we're gonna keep you sort of on this false fuel of blind hope that at some point it will stop sucking. But what's your take on that? And how should we how should we look at hope? Dan, you don't get to write the handbook on hope. I think in some ways, it's a beautiful and powerful story, right? So we know that people in particular who have lived with lots of barriers, lots of challenges in life, but who have been able to maintain a sense of hope. In some ways, they become the models of hope for us. So I think I talked about my great, great grandfather. I can't think of a life in terms of the condition that is more horrible than being enslaved. There are people who lose family members to war, to all sorts of things. And they still have the sense of it will ultimately be okay. And you know why I know it's going to be okay because it was okay yesterday and I did these particular things to make it okay. And these people did these things to help me make it okay and I did it for them as well. So I think in some ways even the story of Pandora is the story of what it means to be human, right? And to be human in the most vulnerable sense, which is the vulnerabilities what we all fear, but that message of despite the challenges, despite the horrors, at the end of the day, I'm not leaving you with a horror. That's not the last thing you're going to end up with. You're going to end up with the capacity to project yourself into a future where things actually will be okay. And I'm going to leave you with a sense of agency to be able to get there. So use the horrors as a way of sort of reading what have I gotten from this experience so far. What have I learned? And then hope your way imagine your way into a different set of alternatives. You can do this. I think it's a great way to end a myth. So the hope wasn't the twisting of the knife, the hope was, yes, life is going to be difficult, but here's this fuel that will allow you to surf and transcend. Absolutely. So yeah, hope is not the end. It's not the knife. It's the bridge. It's the fuel. It's the food that gets you to the next good place. There's a documentary about Tina Turner, and I was vaguely aware of Tina Turner because I'm nearly 50 and I was alive and sentient in the 80s and so private dancer was on my radar and what's love got to do with it, et cetera, et cetera. It turns out, by the way, she hated that song and didn't want to record it. But anyway, Tina Turner was raised by sharecroppers who abandoned her, both mom and dad left and she ended up being raised by a cousin. Learn how to sing in church, kind of randomly met this guy named Ike Turner who changed her name to Tina, married her and beat her ruthlessly for years. And through all of these hardships, Tana Turner was really hopeful. And ended up emerging from a horrible childhood into a terrible marriage, emerging from that marriage, leaving Ike behind, and then becoming after leaving Ike behind on her own a global megastar. All of the success we know about Tina happened after all of those hardships. So anyway, this is coming to mind as an avatar of hopefulness. Yeah, absolutely. And all of us have those moments where, again, against all odds, there's something in you that tells you this is not it for me. Right? We've all had those moments where it's the teacher who tells you you can't do the thing. And you say, essentially, I'm just going to have to de authorize that because this is not it for me. I know what I'm going to be able to do. I know I'm going to be a doctor. I know I'm going to be a lawyer. I know I'm going to do this thing. All of us have those moments. And it's one of the biggest gifts in life is sort of intuitive moments that tell you no, this is not the endgame. There's something out there that's better and some people can imagine it in detail. Other people just have the sort of resonant feeling of it. But I can imagine that for Tina Turner that sense of when you're left by your parents, someone came to get you, right? So here's a reason to be hopeful, right? Is that someone and to be optimistic? Someone came to you, you didn't have to live out your life alone, right? Along the way, the story of who ends up being the global megastar is the story of people who make friendships with you and the teachers who pay attention to you and the woman who decides to help you figure out how to sing that note. So everyone's life is a pastiche of all of these moments of people making decisions to love you into a reality that sometimes they can imagine for you. And sometimes they can't imagine that far, but they can imagine this moment. And so her life as a global megastar wasn't just about it's about whoever else came along the way to make the decision to do the thing. I mean, when I talk to people in studies that I do about how they got to be where they are. Invariably there's let me tell you about the police officer who took me in when my family couldn't take care of me. One of the studies on altruism is police officer and his wife raised 20 kids over the course of their lives. 20 kids who are not their own. They had four boys. But they just kept taking in kids who were getting in trouble, were having struggles in a variety of ways. And all of those kids talked about, you know, mister rivers. Sergeant rivers was the person who saw me, was like, you're getting in trouble. You come home with me, and then he just kept taking me home, right? And so when they tell the story of who they became as lawyers as teachers, et cetera, they could tell the story about the parents who weren't able to take care of them, or they could tell the story about mister and misses rivers. And all the people that came into the river's household. And in the teacher who said, do you know, you argue a lot, you should be a lawyer, right? And who imagined you into that existence when you couldn't have imagined it. But the glory of life is that our lives are these infinities of moments of people caring and attending and being aware and loving us into, as well as the people who don't do that, who do the opposite, but it's the stitching together of all those people who make the decisions to care and attend and lead and teach that leads all of us to look at places that we get to be in. Coming up, Jack will and takes us through her 5 strategies for cultivating hope. What's up, y'all? Selim rush and Walla here and I'm so excited to be hosting a brand new podcast.

"mattis" Discussed on 10% Happier with Dan Harris

"But there's a way in which even things like we talk about bystander effects, right? Where something is going wrong for a particular person and there are people around who are watching. And no one intervenes. There's a way in which that bystander effect may be rooted in a hope, right? So for some people it may be rooted in fear that I'm not going to intervene because I'm afraid of what will happen if I do. But there's a way in which some people don't choose to intervene because they're hopeful that somebody else will. And that's one of the ways that hope can, in some ways, lead to an abandonment of one's own responsibility and abdication of one's sense of connection to and responsibility for the other. And that in a number of ways is dangerous as we can see. So hope can go wrong in a couple of ways. One would be, even if you have faith in the unworldly or otherworldly, you do have to put your finger in the wind to get a sense of what's going on in the terrestrial terms. And then the other way is that you can just blindly hope that other people will deal with the problem and you don't have to. Yep, absolutely. You know, we talk about the fact that hope is optimism with a plan. And to the extent that one stays in the world of it's all just going to work out, then one is optimistic. And in some cases, that optimism is rooted in a kind of fantasy because you don't have any data to suggest that things will work out. But for someone who's truly hopeful, you do have to do the work. You do have to take a step back and look at the world around you. Read the room. And read the past. And put the pieces together in a way that narrates you to because I know this thing has happened in the past because I know that my circumstances are similar or different in these ways. I can make a reasonable expectation that these things will work out. So hope is rooted in data. It's not fantasy. And yet, when you were describing your mom's worldview, which is you can't explain from are there, I think you described a kind of hope that you couldn't make sense of given the world around them. So does that fit with what you just said? It does in the sense that one of the things that people point out when they're looking at a past that seems unfathomable and a present that you couldn't explain from that past if you don't connect the dots. So if you don't look at the intervening pieces, the start point and the end point make no sense. But when you look at the intervening pieces, which is where the hope comes from and where the data comes from, you know, one of the things if I make this a personal story, one of the things that my family talks about is the fact that the very first person in our family whose name we know is Sam Easton. And he was named for the man who owned him. And Sam Easton made the decision to work to buy himself out of slavery. And then he bought his twin sons out of slavery. And his wife, unfortunately, died in slavery because the person who owned her kept raising the price on her. So he was never able to purchase her freedom. He made choices along the way, and there are choices that were facilitated by a number of people in his life at the time as far as we know. But he had a planful set of actions that ultimately led to certain outcomes for him. He taught himself to read and write after he bought himself out of slavery. And he bought land that became land that his son's own. So there are decisions all along the way that had a different decision been made. A different set of outcomes would have happened both for them and for us, generations later. So to say that you can't predict our here from our there is not to say that it's truly inexplicable, but to say that one has to take this whole story with a sense of awe of how amazing life can arc itself towards something really good. And that arc is an art that is partially made by us, but it's partially made for the people who are spiritual. By a God who has no boundaries, right? It has no bounds and who can improvise a life in ways that we couldn't on our own. When I put myself in Sam Easton's shoes, I think like one of the miracles there is that he didn't take matters into his own hands Vis-à-vis the slave owner of wooden who kept raising the price on his wife. Yeah. Absolutely. Yeah, the decision to keep focused on goodness. To make one's life different from the and to carry on one's life in a way that is different from the life of those who are around you, right? So the immorality of slavery. And the brutality of it to live through that and become loving and to be dedicated to love. That's extraordinary, but that's a daily decision, right? And that's a daily decision that's rooted in the idea that one doesn't have to become the person who is in that sort of immoral position. You can become different. And you have to imagine that day to day, like what that different could be, especially if you don't see other examples of it. But again, it's one of the reasons why that connection between faith and hope is so powerful for me is that hope requires a sort of prophetic imagination. It requires you to be able to see something that you don't see in front of you right now and to imagine it in enough details that you can work towards it and recognize the pieces of it as you're moving towards it. But the fine line there is you still have to read the room. You have to have prophetic imagination, but it needs to be grounded in some data. Absolutely. Absolutely. So you've got to have models. You have to see something in your world that suggests that some piece of this is possible. And you just keep working towards it. And in some ways, you make the possibilities, right? So if you're loving and you have a wife who's loving or you have these twin sons who become loving, you see the data manifesting in your own world. And you keep working at it. But we all have models. We all have models of goodness. We all have models of the impossible. Sam Easton may have had really good parents. Absolutely. Absolutely. Yeah, and I'm sure Sam Easton looked around him and saw of the thousand people in his world. He saw some who were engaging in behaviors and living in ways that he made a decision. I will never be that. And others who he said I want to be like this particular person in these ways. And he crafted himself into versions of that. So I think we all make choices in our lives about who we're going to become as we are becoming. And those choices every day pay off one way or another. For good or bad. Now you're getting close to the Buddhist notion of karma. Yes. Yeah, absolutely. Absolutely. We've got to be really careful about the choices that we make. So let's go back to the choices you made earlier in your academic career. So you really got interested in your mom's narrative and started to explore whether you could build up the scientific literature there. But then you got on to hope. So walk us through what your early findings were in the zone of hope. So the first set of studies that I did that looked at spirituality were about the definition of spirituality. And so I wanted people to define for me. When you say you're religious, what do you mean? And when you say your spiritual, what do you mean? So I was asking African American women in particular this question. And one of the things that came up in those conversations was I'm spiritual and religious because I have to believe that there's something bigger than this. I have to believe there's something better than this ahead. And so every day the decisions that I make are about trying to live into that version of the life has to be better than this. It has to be more meaningful. And so the beginnings of the conversation about hope came with a definition of spirituality and religiosity. But the work that I was doing that really sort of anchored from me a real interest in hope came when I was doing a study on altruism in low income urban communities. In particularly among African Americans living in low income urban communities. And the decisions that people made when they have extremely few resources. So women who had only literally $20 to their name and a month to go before they would be able to get a paycheck from whatever.

Joe Kent: From Army Special Forces to Congressional Candidate

"Joe Kent welcome to America first. Tell us your story first. We were going to discuss your epic decision to serve the nation again this time out of uniform, but tell us a little bit about your life history. What you decided to do at the age of 18 and what you've done in uniform for this nation. Absolutely so pretty much as far back as I can remember, I wanted to serve the country abroad, fighting our nation's wars. I came in just before 9 11. I was really inspired by the rangers in the 1993 Black Hawk down incident. So talking to the army recruiters and you got a ranger contract ready to high school, work my way into ranger regiment. I started my career there. And then my way into special forces. So green berets as most people know them. Actually, it was in special forces selection one 9 11 happens. So God done with the special forces qualifications course, immediately went to 5th special forces group and spent pretty much the next two decades at war. So winter combat 11 times for this country, greatest honor of my life. Retired the 20 year mark because I wanted to be able to stay in the fight operational retired on a Friday and then swore in as a paramilitary operations officer at the CIA on a Monday intended to make that my second career. I felt it was my nation's calling to serve this country overseas fighting war. But my time was cut short tragically because my late wife, Shannon Kent, who was also a special operator, a navy cryptologist and Arabic linguist who had joined the military right after 9 11. She was killed fighting ISIS in Syria in 2019. She was killed about a month after president Trump attempted to fulfill the will of the American people and get us out of our endless war. She was part of the final push to destroy the territory territorial caliphate. Once that happened, Trump attempted to get our troops out as he promised. And that's when the deep state essentially turned against him Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis and a bunch of other unelected bureaucrats, committed bureaucratic slow role, went to the media, their end result was that my wife and the element that she was worth a special operator she was with ended up staying in Syria, a month later her and three other great Americans are tragically killed by suicide bomber and managed Syria. So I decided that that moment that I had to resign from putting myself in physical danger to take care of our two young children, move back here to the Pacific Northwest, had a little bit of an opportunity to meet president Trump and really tell him that his America first foreign policy was actually giving it right. I served under Clinton, I served under Bush served under Obama and we remained in this state of continuous war and without making any gains really just for the benefit of the military industrial complex until president Trump came on the scenes and gave us the authorities and then really the ability to go out and crush the enemy decisively, but not getting any

'War by Other Means' Author General Keith Kellogg on the Politicization of the Military

"Okay, this is exciting. There's a brand new book out. It's called war by other means. It is by a general who was in the Trump White House Keith Kellogg. He was former national security adviser to president Trump. We know that well, the book purports to reveal the politics at play within our highest ranking military leadership and how caving to the leftist agenda and cultural pressure by those in the top ranks of America's military has left America, more vulnerable to national security threats than ever. Unfortunately, I don't need any convincing on that score. But it is a real pleasure. To have a general Keith Kellogg on the program to tour to talk about his new book war by other means general welcome to this program. Thank you. Thanks for having me today. Well, let's jump right into it. What you say, unfortunately, is something that seems to be pretty clear to those who are paying attention to what's going on. How is it possible that this could happen? You always think that there are firewalls put up by the founders in the constitution so that this kind of thing can not happen. In the military is supposed to be the military. They're not supposed to be about transgender policies or about white nationalist threats. What in the world enabled this kind of thing to happen? Because when I think of a general, whether it's general Mattis or Millie, it's hard for me to process that they have to cut to the chase gone over to the dark side that something has happened in their careers or at some point to allow them to be used by the I will call it the anti American left, at least that's how I see it. What do you suppose has happened that this was made possible. Yeah, it's sanctuary. I think it's a great question. I think the military the senior levels have become really politicized. And I think part of that very honestly was because of 20 years of war and Afghanistan. And that's one of the reasons by the way I wanted to get out of Africa with the president as well. Because the military became too politically aligned going forward and they saw where the money was coming from and the philosophers they had behind it. And they had reached a point with Mark milley where you see him today. And very candidly, Mark and I have known each other for 25 years. But he has put himself in a position and the way he's talking right now that you never saw general Meyer, a former chairman, general Meyer, Pete pace, Hugh Shelton, Colin Powell. Joe Dunford, none of them spoke the way he speaks now. And he's become very, very politicized on his approach to the military. And I think it's a huge mistake. I think a mistake for the military. And I reminded a lot of people, people forgot what article two section two of the constitution talks about. And there's one unitary commander chief and he's elected commander in

Gunnery Sergeant Jessie Jane Duff on America's First Openly Transgender Four-Star Admiral

"She's none other than gunnery sergeant, UN United States Marine court Jesse Jane Duff, she worked on the Trump campaign co chair of veterans for Trump and also contributed a fellow colleague of mine on newsmax. Gunny, welcome to one on one. Thank you so much. I love your introductions. I get real big headed. Can't get me out of the studio after that. We will always stick to the truth. You are a gummy always a gunny. We've got to talk about what is happening in the last ten months to our services. As you know, the Marine Corps is especially close to my heart. I've worked with all the armed services but I spent two and a half years in Quantico. The latest breaking news item is we find it. I'm sure the Chinese are most impressed. I'm sure Vladimir Putin is quaking in his boots. We have a transgender admiral. Now thank the good lord, it's not in a real armed service. It's not in the coast guard or the navy. It's in the health corps, but put the footage up. This is what's his name Richard Levine, HHS, who has been made a quote unquote admiral in the health corps by the man who sadly bears the title commander in chief and president sleepy creepy Joe Biden. Jesse Jane, this disturbing turn of events, they're not going to keep this just to the health cor are they. Oh, absolutely not. For example, the national defense authorization act right now in Congress got passed. It has to go up to the Senate still. Got passed, though, that taxpayers would pay for transgender surgery. And vote for military members. Military members. So you could join the military. Now, here's something that a lot of people are not aware. The Trump administration did a year study on this under general Mattis, who was very open minded, maybe a little more so than many of us would have liked. For other issues such as women and ground combat, but getting back on this, general Mattis had this studied conducted and they came to find out that transgenders could join the military, but it would be after they've had the hormone treatment, the surgeries. And they were psychologically fit. So they were actually capable of doing the job. And there would be a 5, I believe it would be 5 years within the time that they are surgery. So that you knew that they had fully adjusted. We know that there are record breaking medical concerns among the transgender community for psychological issues, the what is it? What is it called gender dysphoria things to that effect? And I'm no expert on the topic. And I have no issue with the transgender being in the military, but I have a huge issue with the transgender who is using the military to be non

Why Is There No Congressional Committee on Afghanistan?

"I wanted to Get into a number of big issues here with you. First of all. We still have American citizens. Behind enemy lines. In the country now controlled by terrorists and backed by China and Russia. Have you noticed our elites? Now I say elites, not because they're superior to us elites because They claim control and power and superiority over us. Have you noticed our elites? Don't give a damn Is there a reason why we have a commission or a committee on January six, but we don't have a committee about Americans right now behind enemy lines in Afghanistan. Is the reason why the Democrat Party leadership Says nothing. Or if they say anything, they don't seem all I worked up about it. Is it amazing to you that General Mattis and General Kelly who were very outspoken about Lafayette Park, which was nothing Have nothing to say about any of this. Isn't it amazing to you? It's amazing to me. The Sunday shows to the extent it was mention, hit and run. Hit and run. And, of course, as you know, in addition to American citizens behind enemy lines, There are Afghans behind enemy lines. Who helped us fight the enemy helps save American lives. And they've been left to these terrorist butchers,

Ted was tremendous. Because you know what those two leagues are tremendous all season. Long games aren't games. they're events the acc was anti climactic but great for josh passenger and the greatest shield in the history of life. The big east to me was phenomenal. I mean patrick ewing. Not only does he no longer needed credential again but he got into madison square garden and walked away with four games in four days and his team played like an old vintage georgetown team. Pac twelve stolen a bid which was really cool. Wayne tinkle's got it was who was on the hot seat. It was so cool is good coach. A good person attack boil. Who's another great guy still going tournament. So i thought championship week was absolutely spectacular. Your take oh. I thought it was great. I look. I'm gonna tell you houston's legit at chance due to their games including the championship game in the ac. That is a legitimate. I was happy that drake dot in. I was happy that twenty five and four guy in. I thought that was terrific. I love the fact that the drew brothers are in the tournament. The demolishing of creighton shocked the living in. Hell on me. And says i'm telling you i like when you lose guys mclaughlin aquino record and next thing you know man. What are you doing better. The next year matt pain and getting himself in the top four seeds after losing two guys eastern and harms but overawe a look championship. Week was the sec. Tournament was off the charts with the championship. Game and college basketball delivers it delivers every damn nights. Let's go to the west ready. Let's do it all right now. Let's do this number one seat. I was thinking what games in the upper half of the west. Are you looking forward to see. I wanna see what. Oklahoma can do eight nine game now. Maybe it doesn't matter because you're gonna play gonzaga. But i think this i think if you're gonna play along krueger team whether you're konso martyn missouri. Who has struggled or whether you're gonzaga. You know you're going to play a very very good basketball team. And i had them earlier in the year they can shoot it. They defend it. They play hard. I don't think they're overly talented and the kid to get something done but lon kruger is so good at dictating pace. That if i'm sitting here with gonzaga i wanna lesser coach in my second round game assuming that they win. What do you got. Well you know i actually. I think missouri can win that game. A jeremiah tells me he's going to have to go out guard on out on a primitive 'cause they're playing brady at the five and they've run them all over the place on the other side though rate mattis gutter guard that dude on the block to is become a good player control martin's team when they're older and more mature and her physical they are talking tournament. Think about what he did tennessee. So you know this is going to be really good game because you've got a tough physical team in missouri. You've got a team that attacks match ups plays almost four guards in oklahoma. I'm actually leaning towards missouri in this match up. Well you're going to be wrong and that's okay you can be. It's okay. I can be wrong. It will be the first time won't be the last time and you know that's right. I don't have either. We'll on from barry. I but i touched on that but also got to say tony bennett said that most of his team is in quarantine south. Now i don't know about you but that preston kid that plays at ohio university. Ooh yeah he can go and all of a sudden. You're talking about a team that wait a second. I know i know. Virginia's good. I know virginia came on. I know they ended up with the one seat in the acc tournament. But seth you're playing against a hot as hell ohio university team. A team led by jeff bowls. Who frankly he's the perga- guide ohio you because he loves ohio you. He played there with the with the shock of the mac.

Ex-Pentagon chiefs warn against using US military in election disputes

"Living former defense secretaries have joined together to push back on any talk about involving the military and resolving election dispute. 10. Former defense chiefs, including Trump Appointees, Mark Esper and Jim Mattis, wrote an op ed in the Washington Post today. They said the time for questioning the election results has passed.

"I think twice in the past has Congress granted a waiver. The most recent one, of course, was for General Jim Mattis for Donald Trump. But you cannot argue with Austin's qualifications of the only The only argument raised is, Are we going to do this again? And I would have to say, I think it's very hard to say we granted one to Jim Mattis. We're not going to give one toe Lloyd Austin, I think after Mattis is waiver of that the awesome waiver will happen with both Democratic and Republican votes. Alice. You shouldn't President Biden have the team he wants. He absolutely should. And I agree with Bill on those points and look, he is a man of tremendous integrity. He certainly has the experience. He certainly has the background and military to do the job. Just as general Mattis did, and I agree, if if you approve the waiver for Mattis, it seems as though the same would go for with regard to Lloyd Austin, and it's interesting to see a lot of Democrats acknowledge. Well, I didn't approve the waiver for Mattis, so I can't justify doing it in this case, so Will be certainly a lot of soul searching, but I do think he certainly has the qualifications and Joe Biden does. He has the the right and certainly the responsibility to himself in this party to nominate people that he feels will be beholden to his ideology and his ideas but also Do the job with the skills and requirements necessary and Bill pressured. One of those people nominated be Ohio Congresswoman Marsha Fudge. If she's confirmed his housing secretary, by the way, we're in a lot of black leaders wanted her instead of Tom Vilsack for ahead of the agriculture to shift that agency from farmlands a little more to nutrition and food stamps. But if she's confirmed its housing secretary, the Democrats have been down with five seat majority in the House, the slimmest majority in decades. Yep, it Z getting it's getting a little thin. There. You have to count Cedric Richmond to who will be leaving the house African American from New Orleans to join the vice the president elect on the new president in the White House. It just means Democrats have to work harder and harder to hold onto those two. Caesar took both pretty safe Democratic seats. But you know, I come back to One of the one of the deals when you win is you get to pick your team on you get to pick your team and put them where you want them. And I think Joe Biden is doing that. And I think Martha Fudge will be confirmed and Democrats will hold onto that seat. Okay? We only have a half a minute. I'm gonna each of you say, whose fault is it? That we don't have money that we're getting out of the pandemic, and you can't say the other party, Alice. It is Congress as a whole. Look, we're still talking about the same issues, direct payments, state and local cash liability the same issues,.

But could his nomination face some trouble in the Senate and joining us live from Capitol Hill? Double d. T. O p. S Mitchell Miller. Mitch General Austin is very well respected. So why are there questions about whether the Senate would confirm it? Well, Shawn and Hillary. It goes back to the history of the defense secretary being in a civilian position, and the so called seven year rule that if a military officer is tapped for that position, they need to have been retired from the military for at least that long. Austin retired four years ago after a distinguished military career of more than 40 years and included a major command in Iraq. Tenure is the head of the U. S. Central Command. But several lawmakers say it's important to maintain a civilian in that position. The ranking Democrat on the Senate Armed Services Committee, Rhode Island Jack Reed had given in on a waiver for General James Mattis under President. Trump said he wouldn't support one in the future. He is now wrestling with this. Others have said they'll oppose the waiver, including senators Elizabeth Warren Richard Blumenthal, who's on the Armed Services Committee and Jon Tester of Montana. But if the House and the Senate grant a waiver, which they both have to do, he'll likely still have plenty of votes to be confirmed. Hey, Mitch, who are the other potential candidates? Lawmakers might have preferred to Austin. Well, one of them would have been the first woman to serve as defense secretary Michelle Florida who's held various positions at the Pentagon and is very well respected. The House Armed Services Committee chair Adam Smith made it clear she was his first choice. Another candidate who had been talked about a lot was former Homeland Security Secretary Jay Johnson.

Now, let's go to the phones Jake Colin from making. You're going to be up next welcome. Hi Eric This Ajay from making. Thank you very much and also I. Just want make a real quick. Great Program and today's program was just fantastic. The? I have three points real quick George Floyd. was murdered by the officer, and it's deplorable and egregious. I'm totally I would grab all the officers and throw them in prison for the rest of it was terrible thing to do I do have a couple of points so and I've been around a long time in my seventies, and I grew up in an area near Cleveland Ohio. Live in Chicago I was around when they were riots and all that kind of thing, but when I grew up, I grew up around. blacks and Europeans, and you name it. We had a really of mixed community in I. was the minority walking to school? Believe it or not I was the only white, and there were black, and so forth, and we live together. We work together and we. It was fantastic and I thought the world was like that, but unfortunately it's not. so I'll do all I can continue to do I. can to make it better, but two things that are bothering me recently. Making has had twenty six or twenty seven murders to date this year. It's deplorable. It's absolutely horrible, and there was nothing in outrage set about it. And it's terrible and it's just almost like blacks are killing blacks. But doggonit blacks live Matt and black lives, matter and all lives matter. What what? Why are we not getting outrage the last point there was an elderly couple in New Jersey. I think in May sometime. They're revisiting their sons growing site in veteran's cemetery. And they they were gunned down execution style in the back of the head by a black man. And a paper, the media covered it as a random shooting, and that was the end of it. And I'm not saying we need to retaliate and March and go do all that stuff, but. You can have all that violence in all the murders and say well. The police are racist and they may be and I'm not. You know several that I'm sure are. But overall the police forces needed in order to be safe I. I don't Want My wife walking downtown by ourselves. She knows that their murderers and there's blacks that look suspicious, and so automatically you think. Well I want this I'm GonNa. Stay home where I'M GONNA. Go with my husband. And I just I'm frustrated with the whole thing. There was no outrage over all the other stuff along so he. said that Jake listen thank you for calling and thanks for the kind words. It is for those of you who have her in making twenty three twenty four homicides this year, overwhelmingly black on black violence. It's very much like the shootings on the south side of Chicago. It just becomes par for the course. Those lives. Matter to the shooter and the victim. Both their lives matter. What lead lead someone to what leads someone to to pull the gun? What leads someone to be outraged like that to do that? What leads someone to kill an elderly couple execution style at their son's grave? These are problems in our society, and it's amazing how we were essentially. What this goes back to the whole idea of. We're having this cultural revolutionary moment with lip. You're not allowed to talk about. The two people who were executed at their son's grave. No, no, you can't. This is your time to listen this week. Dole. Bring that up, listen. What about the murders in May? No, by God we're. This is about the least this week. It's not about that Y.. When is it ever about that? When do we have that? Conversation Joe Allen who is a member of the county commission down a big county put on his facebook. Page that it was time to to shoot to kill the looters. A, sentiment shared by an overwhelming number, of Americans he has been since apologized for his word choice. It has become a scandal in local media in middle Georgia that he said this. But I continue to look at this and I wonder why. Why aren't the police doing more to protect these people's businesses? You haven't led them go to work. But you are letting people. Go burn up their businesses. That's wrong. they're an easy. This is this is part of the problem. The president's tweeting today about silent majority I I. Don't Know How silent it is, or whether it's the majority, but I do think there are a lot of people who they look for example at what happened of drew brees. And the like. Why is he apologizing for? What does he have to apologize for this? And and what about the couple that was executed in? Why isn't the media covering that? Why all of these things I- Yol some? Our coverage is being steered. In politically opportunistic ways to advance agendas that aren't necessarily the agendas, we should be carried about right now. When it comes to what happened to George, Floyd or Almond Aubrey so much of this as being hijacked by people who are out to up in American politics for their own political purposes, and not for the purposes of rectifying wrongs, and you need to be mindful that that's what's going on out there.

"You know, here's the thing. This is why you can't have a cure to systemic racism. If you believe it's a thing because you believe it requires a government solution, and what government is going to provide you the solution to systemic racism, the government that built the cystic racist society. When you actually get down to it. It doesn't really make any sense. What they're calling for really. Is An upheaval in American society. They're not calling for reform. They're calling for an end and that's the thing with the whole sixteen nineteen project with the New York Times. It rewrite history. Badly rewrite history. But it rewrite history on the argument. That racism was a problem. The moment the white people set foot on this continent. And that? That's how far back racism goes now. What is the solution then? We've got up in society. As you know it see the the the constitution is illegitimate. Because the constitution. was built on that systemic racism, so we need to get rid of the constitution. And if we get rid of the constitution, we can get rid of our ordering of society are checks and balances on society, our federal system where you and I live in no, we're going to a now. Allow our cultural betters to take over I mean y'all just just consider this. Ponder this point for moment. How many of you yesterday? Or on Tuesday when people were putting their black squares on instagram. How many of you? got emails from. Businesses around the country. We hear you. WE'RE COMMITTED TO STAMPING OUT SYSTEMIC racism. We're with you. We. Need to shut up and listen. We must change as a society. Racism is bad. And we must work hard to change. How many of you got that sort of email? How many have you got it from your company that you work for? How many of you got from the companies? You do business door dash that went out. Believe I saw uber sent one out. Apple the apple music would dabble musical Tuesday was blacked out with. We need the listen today. This is a problem in our country. My point is not the mocked them. My point is to say this if every major corporation in this country. Agrees! The systemic, racism is bad And it must be fixed. And everyone in your social media feed agrees it's bad at it must be fixing. Everyone put up a black square. How is it still a problem? If the major cultural forces in this country say. We don't support this. How is it a problem? And what are you going to do if it is a problem if you've got every major corporation in this country? And all of your social media followers. And every major political party. And every major voice in every influence, or and they're all out there, saying this is a problem. This is wrong. And everyone agrees it's wrong. And yet it still exists. Does it exist. In if it does exist if it does really exist. How are you going to fix the problem? When all the cultural warriors out there and cultural movement in the fortune five hundred? They already agree it's a problem, too must be stopped, and and they're not actually doing it. What what what what comes next? What's the path forward. My point here is that it's not going to be the fortune five hundred, and it's not going to be the social media black squares in the influencers, and is going to be the politicians, and is not going to be the government that brought you. Slavery Jim Crow and the police force. Fixing this is going to be you. It's going to be you. What's so interesting is in the polling, a majority of Americans believe systemic racism isn't a problem in their community, but is in the nation. Because they know their community the best. And they're engaged the most. You're not actually going to have a problem fixed by the federal government. You'RE GONNA. Fix It yourself in your behavior in your community. And the left can't abide by that. These cultural warriors marching in the streets and smashing a business. They can't abide by that because that then fosters more individualism. And they're not actually out to solve this problem. They're out to up end and reorder the united. States as a whole, and so they don't want you to take matters into your own hands and commit to working locally because they wanna up into all of that. But you going out individually solving the problem, you actually solve the problem. It's all of these cultural revolutionary agitators. Who are going to be upended if you actually go out and engage in your community and worked to improve your community. They're not gonNA. Have liked to stand on these people, and that's actually a good thing. You don't want the cultural revolutionaries to win this. I just I continue to believe that the president has an in here in all those cultural warrior stuff and the this systemic inequality because he's running, he's been president for four years. Had No elected office before this. And he's running against a man who was in government for forty years, and served as vice president of the first black president for eight years and did nothing. Arguably made it worse. The, the that so many people are out of the streets, marching about a police brutality, and in racism and inequality, and all these things Joe Biden made it worse with his policies. The president's got an in here with these people if he will just commit the folks, and again like I said the first hour his message needs to be I'll keep you safe and get you back to work. He's GONNA keep us safe and get back to work. That's it. That's the message in an applies to the black community, a place to the white community. The Hispanic community the Asian Community the southeast. Asian community, the ending community you name it, you pick the even applies to the Canadians who are in this country. I'll keep you safe and I'll get you back to work. He's got an OP. If he will stay focused on a message, she's got an opportunity. You know if we have you noticed this we're. We're technically now in pride month. Another milestone for the cultural revolutionaries out there and yet they're marching in the streets, when all this other stuff and folks are canceling their pride, parades, cities or canceling their pride parades this year. This is always one of the most in an insufferable months, frankly as a as an evangelical conservative to yet again, it's another marker for cultural communities out there on the left that control society to try to. Push Kids and push Christians and evangelical. In positions that conflict with their faith and your bad. If you're a Christian and you believe in and. This year it's all on pause. It'll be I'm sure because you know. It resurfaces in October every year. I've never understood why we got two of these but we do and I'm sure it will come back with Gusto in October, and then again in June of next year. It's just it's it's A. It's not happening.

"On what the president's message needs to be. And I really he's trying law and order. And I don't think law and order works the reason I. Don't think law and order works because it's been done before. It's also the name of a TV show, and when you look at the underlying polling, what actually is the big issue for voters is going back to work. And I. think that you people back to work, and that's going to matter more than anything listen. Here's the thing I've learned. There are a lot of people who consider themselves principled and they're really not. There are a lot of people who have a lot of principals until those principles are changed by their pocketbook in their pocket. Book comes first. So there are a lot of people who may hate the president, but if their 401k is growing with him, they'll stick with him. In fact there's a lot of data out there. That shows a lot of the people who don't like the president. Actually think he would be better than Joe. Biden at getting the economy going again. And so I don't think the president should use the message law and order. That's not as campaign theme. I think his campaign theme is keep you safe. And I'll get you back to work. Republicans will keep you safe and get you back to work in. This works perfectly with everything and is a great contrast with Joe, Biden. Joe Biden can't keep you safe and get you back to work. Because he's aligned with the rioters, I'll keep you safe and get you back to work. China well. We can't be depended on China for medicine and national security we need.

What are you GonNa do for the black community Mr President. Will they deserve to be kept safe and put back to work to I'm going to create jobs in the black community. We're going to keep them safe. He's got a message. See Okay. The what is the president's Corey the the Democrats have finally done their little political Jujitsu. They figured out how to turn a string into a weakness. The president's core strength is he's a fighter and he fights. And he'll come after you.

And he one of the media to focus on something by God he'd start tweeting about it, and they disagree with him, and they may hate him for, but they'd go do it. And now the media has figured out how to get the president unfocused. Because, they're firing shots all over the place.

We're going to keep people safe and get them back to work you do that. You get reelected. You don't do that. You lose to Joe Biden. But Jill Biden message is what people think they want right now. Would people think they want right now is calm from the chaos and peace. See the the agitators. The agitators agitating because they want to keep people in chaos. The agitators are agitating because they want everybody discombobulated. The agitators are agitating because they want people to blame the president, and because they know the president's going to swing in every direction.

inside trumps Pentagon with secretary Mattis Mister Snodgrass good morning good morning man a great thanks for having me secretary Mattis is a native of this state and and still lives in the tri cities your what what do we need to know about him from your perspective you know I think it died secretary about himself is now but there's a lot of hot political rhetoric running around the country it's very polarized environment as we all know and so I think that we're gonna need a lot more time to assess his role as secretary of defense that being said I would tell you that my year and a half serving alongside a man and a credible patriot deeply about America cares deeply about the military and worked tirelessly to make America's military great again other than that comment at that dinner the other nights talking about bone spurs in a couple of jokes Matt this is been pretty quiet about trump while others have spoken out against him after after leaving the White House so what do you think that is well I think he himself is and stated that he wants to remain out of the political fray he knows that as they retired four star marine corps general and as the former secretary defense who served under under president trump people are going to use his words to for political means and he'd like to give them a little ammunition as possible he like for his record to stand on its own two feet and and obviously to give the president the maneuvering state he needs to continue to lead the country he likes to keep a low profile how does he feel about you writing this book about him he was not a fan we talked about at the beginning of this year back in January I mentioned to him again and marches we're getting ready to unveil the book and then of course the Pentagon itself want to block this book from coming out there's a lot of behind the scenes first hand accounts of the non traditional way that president trump has led the country it brings you into the room for two of the meetings that we gave to the president and it it allows your listeners if they pick up the book he gives you a chance to see some of those discussions about how America's military is being used around the world where we stand with some of these if people call them forever wars overseas Afghanistan and in the Middle East and president trump stayed on those right and I think that's a very valuable

"A senior leader uses their power to take advantage of a young person sexually or financially or whatever. You don't have to order them to do things. You can you can cause things that that are just wrong. I think if you are dishonest with your force that there's a certain moral problem. They're not beyond just dishonesty because young soldiers are hardwired to believe their leaders hard wire, if you say take the hill, and they look at you, and they go can we do that? And if you go. Yep. We can do it. You're trying to build their confidence. But there's a moral requirement to that. Because if it's if you don't believe that they can do it. Then there's there's a real challenge there. So I think when I talk about morals, I don't talk about you know, somebody's sex life for some. I talk about that unique responsibility.

Without you know, I mean careful but tough in his resignation letter. What impact does? That have on the force because he's he was a highly highly respected figure. In the short term. It's it's a bit disruptive. You have a secretary offensively. You have gap. You have people saying, okay? What next but we always figure that out. This is more than that. You have a highly respected former general beloved by the force and saying essentially saying I don't have confidence in the commander in chief. What I won't speak for Jim. But I think when a senior leader of that level of credibility takes a stand that his principled.

"Of thousand troops to the border. And then Defense Secretary James Mattis authorize it remember that that was Mattis's authorization was through January thirty first. So the troops had come home. Go back to their bases. Get off the border, which is costing us a lot of extra money. January thirty first what was just snuck in? Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan. Approved an extension through September thirtieth. In response to a request from the unfunded homeland security department. The Pentagon said late yesterday. So how much is that gonna cost us? How many millions? How many millions and then? All all the while. Our government continues to be shut down that is so disgusting to me. We'll spend millions on the military coastguard doesn't get paid. And you workers can't pay your rent, and you have to food banks to get food. Holy that is the world in which we're living right now.

Feared by our foes, the most impressive military mind. I've had the honor to know Jim wrote Tobias Ellwood our world will be less safe. Without you. US allies are afraid that their alliances are falling apart, and that ISIS terror will spread without a strong US presence, and that US foreign policy is being driven by one man one very undependable, man. Following Mattis out the door was the US arm voi- to every foreign country on the world willing to fight ISIS. Brett mcgurk quit right after Mattis end for the same reason. Trump's decision to pull out of Syria, a decision described as scary and deeply disturbing. After those departures Trump tweeted that matters would be out to full months earlier than previously announced Trump was kicking Mattis out early for saying bad things about him buried on a long and boring letter. Trump had finally seen on TV the parts of Madison's letter. He hadn't read and ordered Mattis out the door the country heralded as the most powerful on earth had for more than a week. No Defense Secretary at all the new guys started Tuesday promising to carry out Trump's vision at the Pentagon, what other choice would he have?.

"Hi, right, Mattis General Mattis. Has resigned effective the end of February? And I don't think there's any way to get around it in his letter. He makes it abundantly clear that he has significant disagreements with the commander in chief. It is FOX reports here. Defense Secretary James Mattis resigned today day after President Trump's plans to withdraw troops from sear became public. It's affected the end of February. And he wrote in part because you have the right to have a secretary defense whose views are better aligned with yours on these and other subjects I believe it is right for me to step down from my position. One core belief. I've always felt he wrote his at our strength is a nation is inextricably linked to the strength of our unique and comprehensive system of alliances and partnerships. All the US remains the indispensable nation in the free world. We cannot protect our interests are served that role effectively without meaning maintaining strong alliances. Chun respect to those allies. We happened to be right about those things. I also think the president has done more to confront North Korea China. Than any modern president. And up until yesterday. I thought he'd done done more to confront Russia. I think the serious thing, ladies and gentlemen, if you really think it through and put aside, your emotions and put aside personalities was a grave mistake. And I think this probably pushed Mattis Mattis over the edge as watching General Jack Keane on FOX a retired four-star general very much a supporter of President Trump. He said when it comes to Syria, I strongly disagree with the president did and I strongly disagree with the two. Frankly, I don't understand it. And as the president tweeted throughout the day about this. I understood it even less. I get Afghanistan. I I really do. We had a minimal military footprint in Syria and with minimal military foot footprint. We had enormous success. We're helping protect our allies the Kurds. Iran was very concerned about over running the country. Hezbollah saying. Russia was in a box, even though it had moved into Syria. And Turkey didn't move. It's fifty thousand troops on the border to wipe out the Kurds. We removed those two thousand special forces. And if we abandon the one base that we have there near Iraq. The base is strategically located to try and prevent your Ron from building. It's. Military highway from Iraq. Through Syria to Israel. I think this is going to create an enormously explosive situation. That's their problem. No. It's not their.
