"Capacious health physician and in the past. He has worked as a plastic surgeon. Dr motti pera helps people overcome their medical issues and achieve their best health. In the second part we will discuss the role of physical activity in our mental and physical wellbeing. And we'll also talk about behavioral chains and about the tools that may help making a change. Easier we are living in a time of sedentary behavior and obesity pandemic in the world. Many of us are thinking about making change towards better. We know what we're supposed to but still quite often. We fail in fulfilling the expectations of others and ourselves as efficient. Do you consider patients about these topics. I mean physical activity obesity so quite a lot of faces. The of this deal with the problems related to obesity obesity and current conquering disease just as diabetes hypertension So that's like an everyday topic for you to talk about it. It's quite it's it's very common. It's well to be honest to to continue from the previous topic the idea of them the value definition. I i have i have. I have applied this same method of thinking. we written helping a faces with obesity. Because like you said that we know what we're supposed to do it's everywhere so it would be kind of like actually a waste of time for me to work as a authority again for a patient to blame them for not doing the right thing. Not trying enough. That really really helps so we have to dig with obesity. We have to go behind to the actual calls. What causes

"So what pieces of the story do we need to bring in that. You haven't been paying attention to so far that actually create a counter story right and so you look at that story and he looked at the evidence. You think of yourself as a failure but look let's let's also think about all the places where you succeeded and let's look at the number of successes relative to the number of failures and let's look at why the story of i am a failure resonates so well for you in how it served you and let's look at why it's not serving you now because we're sitting together right so you wouldn't have come to seek a different way of being if this was truly comfortable so it's that work that suggests to us that there can be changed and there is change. We do have the capacity to shift the way that we think we have the capacity to shift the way that we function and ultimately that's the most hopeful about what it means to live a life right every day. We get to make a decision. A colleague of mine used to talk about the fact that we're all in the process of being made and we get to be part of the making of ourselves and that happens every decision every second every minute every day we we have lots of choices and lots of power. And that's where hope lies this idea of changing the story you're telling to yourself about yourself is really compelling and sounds like something you could do in therapy but you could you know if you've married well if you have good friends if you have a community at church or a buddhist sangha or whatever it is there are good colleagues you can start to or you could even maybe even do it for yourself if you have the wherewithal to start examining your assumptions and challenging them. Yeah absolutely and as you do that telling a different story about yourself also means telling a different story about the people in your life and telling a different story about the people around us because the hope in our ability even if we take this outside of the south. I'm increasingly interested in intergroup relationships right relationships across lines of race and sexuality is etc and it's the stories we tell about who the other is and our ability to connect up with them. That story is equally meaningful in terms of the hope of us being able to live together well and we have the capacity to look differently at the data we've collected about other people other groups of people other people's and to think about what pieces of the story are we not telling bear that would provide us with a counter story that would actually allow us to live more beautifully more hopefully with each other and who is telling the story that is so familiar and so rooted in the idea that we cannot get along that we cannot do this thing. And what's the investment in that relative to the lots of pieces of data where people actually can figure out how to live lovingly across lines of human difference. We can do all of this hopeful work for ourselves individually but we absolutely also have to do it into personally an integral contexts. I was actually just today looking at a quote from martin luther king junior about He was basically saying that. If you look in your own mind you're going to see that You've got as much capacity for greatness as you do for roguishness and then if you look out at the world you'll see that even the people or the nations that hate you. The most despite their vile behavior there is goodness in there somewhere. Where all complicated and seeing that complexity can actually be a source for hope absolutely. It's the ability to see the humanity and others and recognize that As you said there is goodness everywhere everywhere. But what's interesting to me about. That is that it starts by having an honest look at yourself by seeing key quotes gurtler or somebody is saying you know i have as much capacity to be great as i do to be a rogue or or scoundrel or whatever. It's actually having this humble. Look at your own not making yourself. Some perfected being. You're seeing your old would. There's another line from poetry that My meditation teacher likes to talk about it. It's love your crooked neighbor with all your crooked heart. So if you see your own fallibility you can see the fallability and others. And and actually in some way focused not just on their fallibility but on the remainder which may be really positive absolutely and to go back to religions although this is certainly not located exclusively in the world of religions You know. I think a lot about stories about you. Know taking the the piece of wood out of your ira before you try to do the same for another order. In order to be able to see the other if we are able to see our own vulnerability and embrace it if we're able to live with our own fear and the ways in which are fear of being vulnerable or fear of some sort of boogeyman out. There keeps us from being able to appreciate the fact that the other person's scared to or the other person is loving to and the other person laughs to makes friends to if we aren't able to do that work thing. We can't build bridges. The thing that i love about being at rutgers newark as an administrator is i get to see these eighteen to twenty two to forty year olds who have figured out how to have conversations with each other in ways that thirty forty fifty sixty years ago. I can't imagine happening. Just can't imagine it and that's beautiful but they it's partly because somehow they've figured out how to have these sort of Reflective more of. I've been through some things and i'm going to ask you what you've been through as well and if we look at the fact that we've had challenges and challenges in ways that we wouldn't have been able to anticipate in when i look at you and i see some how privileged and leave the story there. I can't get to know you. But if i if i ask you about what was it like being the brother. What was it like being these two people son or this one person son and how to our stories link-up if we can find those places where we can walk across bridges into each other than it creates wonderful opportunities for us to set a goal of being able to live with each other's humanity and celebrate that humanity nice hopeful place to leave it. I will take the would out of my. I try to get around the cancer and walk across the bridge and walk across the bridge. All thank you so much for doing this thank you. This was one if i really appreciated that. Having the opportunity to to talk with you. I really did. If people wanna learn more about your.

"They ultimately realized the difference between this child being okay and not being okay. Is someone stepping in and doing the right thing. And they sort of made the decision. I'm gonna leave this to god or i'm gonna leave us to the universe to Have it worked out. But i can't make the decision to leave a child in harm or in harm's way and so altruism is rooted in a profound sense of hope and that for me sort of brought that conversation to the four. It's a fascinating path that you took here following your interest. Can you define hope yes so hope. In order to define hope we need to define optimism so optimism is a orientation towards the future where one expects that things will work out well in the future. Hope is that same sense of expectation that future events future experiences will work out but the second piece of hope is what people talk about his an agency mindset where you don't just expect that things will work out in the future but you also anticipate that there is a plan that will get you there and you engage the plan in some ways so hope is optimism. Future tation with a plan. So i'd love to hear more about what you learned when you really turn your attention fully to hope. So one of the things that i learned is that people will indeed take enormous risks in the service of hope so there are lots of decisions that people would. You know. you'd look at someone who is making a decision to help a child who you know if someone found out you would lose your children and those kids would be sent to foster care anyway. And there's something about the human spirit that says. I have to decide what the values are that i need to live into and lean into and that those values are going to be the thing that hope drives by eight and that ultimately drive my sense of hope so a radical commitment to caring and loving is rooted in and also cultivated by a sense of hope and hopefulness laid. So when you think about the decisions that all of us make about whether we're going to spend the extra time that we need with the person that we need to spend time with when we know that we have other things that we need to do but the decision that somebody else's life and pain means more to us than any other outcome that we can worry about and so we're going to hope that things are going to be okay because this experience this person. This situation deserves attention. And i'm just going to have to figure the rest of it out. And i trust that it will all work out okay. So digging deep into this work around hope led me to realize that hope forces you to clarify your values and once he clarify your values at helps you to double down on hope and so. That's one thing that became clear one of the other things that became clear as a lot of the literature that i was reading on optimism and hope talked about this notion that there's a theory that psychologists have held onto for quite some time call the conservation of resources theory and the argument. There is that people with resources have good reason to be optimistic. They have good reason to be hopeful because the things that they need already there they already have the resources they need to but that optimism and hope also become resources. That help you to do the things that you need to do. And that ultimately whatever decisions people make are intended to prevent the loss of resources so you try to prevent yourself from losing money from using time etc but you also work to try to prevent yourself from losing optimism because you realize if optimism is fueled through to the next thing in your life you don't wanna lose access to your own optimism so you can serve that as a resources well. The material end of conservation of resources theory never made sense to me. Because i grew up among working class people in people who were poor and i saw in the communities that i grew up in lots of people who were deeply hopeful they were not irrationally hopeful. They were working hard to make things work out for themselves. And if you look at the folks that i grew up with and folks like up around. Even if people didn't become materially secure they were able to produce children who were wonderful human beings in conditions. That would suggest that wonderful human beings couldn't grow up there right and so a lot of that is about being able to imagine your children into a future that every single day you have to make the decision about. How do i love this child into good decision. Making how do. I love this child into being a loving person and honest person. A caring person and parents did that every day. And so even kids who were involved in activities that no kid should be involved in. I did clinical work with kids who are involved in gangs and most of the kids that i worked with were involved in gangs because they were trying to protect people they did it out of love and it out of a sense of hope that if they gave up their own freedom their own ability to control their own lives in in certain kinds of ways that they could protect people who were part of their families friendship court cetera and again. There's a of. I believe a good thing can happen and i have to plan my way through it the way that i am going to plan my way through. It is by making decisions that they cost me but for the benefit of other people so the enormous sacrifices that can come from hope also came through. I'd love to talk about hope right. Now you're the culminating final guest in this series. We're doing on hope.

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.

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.

Ferrari now in favour of F1 engine freeze from 2022
"So on the need someone needs to make you some more space but elsewhere in the news. I suppose We should probably start with ferrari. I guess Today they have suggested that it would now back an engine freeze now. This is something that rebels been asking for because as we know home there is expected to undergo palau at the end of two thousand. Twenty one and red bulls ideal scenario that to kind of take on this the engines. But it needs an engine. Free said it doesn't have to fronts the cost of the development itself and ferrari been against this when asked previously and now it's made this year ten john. What's what's changed its mind. Maybe some ferrari engine donna figures. I twenty twenty one engine. Perhaps if you're is classic from london if you're the team in front than you'll be more than happy to freeze anything to stop your rivals have the ability to catch up. And if you'll behind you want everything you put in development totally free so you can make the the steps forward that you want Was very interesting. Ferrari of basically said that they would support a potential freeze from twenty twenty. Two still get some scope for improvement next year under certain conditions. Which are that the the all new engine that formula increasing. Whatever this new hybrid will be from. Twenty supposedly twenty-six comes forward to twenty twenty-five and efan commits heavily to sustainable fuels of this biofuel carbon recaptured fuel. Or whatever that that final full mattis but so it wants to see you. If one heading in these this direction the engines in on that front will accept a freeze on that front but then kristen hornets spike in tonight and was asked about furrer situation said he always very happy. This is really important at then said but it's important that There is freedom to develop engines in this freeze. If you're behind the to catch up so to me. That's not a freeze. So i think you know may be one of those scenarios that we have in having the coronavirus world especially with the uk government. We come out of lockdown into something. That's still lockdown. Down isn't cool to lockdown so is going to head to a scenario of an engine. Freeze isn't actually an engine.

And he would take a deep breath with his handling this. And I was normal I thought that's what you did. That's appearance do when they get angry and it would always calm him down not that he would be super happy afterwards yet that was his automatic habit when instead of the Elliott you that's what he would do and what I realized from that is it wasn't that my dad didn't get angry wasn't that he was perfect he got angry. But that was his goal to practice, and so if we can start to implement these practices in our life, it's like when I get angry, I put my hands behind Madonna. Hop on one foot I don't really care what it is interrupt your pattern and interrupt superhighways of habit so that we can start to carve out new pathways and what you just described with your father sounds like it was constructive. He wasn't not getting angry because sometimes you do need to get angry to meet whatever your emotional goal is is self-regulation is just it's intentional and so that breath made his anger tension on I imagine sometimes when he took the breath, he was like actually. I'm that that anger not where I wanna go I don't know better know his experience but having that moment to I would love for you to talk a little bit about making those emotions constructive instead of just pretending they're not they're exactly. So what this does is it allows us to have the full spectrum of motion. It's not saying push. Those are bad never have does it saying being human? You're going to have the full spectrum, but you need to know how to wisely. Relate to regulate your emotions and so when anger comes up, what mindfulness does is puts you back choice it doesn't say that you're not gonNA still be angry, but you're backing choice. So you can use the anger wisely instead of reactively and causing more harm and I think that's really the key to to mindful -regulation of motion is we welcome all of our emotions we see them clearly, and then we respond

"That's why he carefully He carefully positioned his departure from the administration. He'd met with General John Kelly months before, and they both come to the agreement when Madison Depart and how he was going to do it, and the fact that would first, and then Kelly, we leave second, so that Kelly could hold on the Ford at the White. House but. The Way Madison presented to the public is that it was a spur of the moment decision because at the president's decision to withdraw from Syria, but that's not the truth, so you know you guys have been around long long enough. There's there's always the what's going on behind closed doors. And then there's what you presented the public to help shape the narrative in the way that's most advantageous either for the country for the individual for the institution. Well one of the narratives is that some of the generals that did stay in state in because at a certain point. Point they realized that it was important for them to protect the country or protect the military from this president. Maybe that was a rationalization. Maybe it's real was ever anything you heard Secretary Mattis talk about the great question I'm trying to remember. I'm trying to think back if there's ever any over, I can't recall that I can't recall Mattis speaking so freely in front of his staff that he would say I'm only here because I'm trying to protect the military from the president. I don't think he viewed the job that way, but it's much like anytime we've. We've all been in this kind of position. Just at different levels of society right it could be, it could be a private company. You've got a boss who likes to make hasty decisions. You're a more thoughtful and deliberate middle manager, and you realize hey, boss what you're about to do I. Understand your intent, but the way you want to do. It is going to harm our employees. It's going to harm the company long-term. Here's what if we do it this way. It's still gets to your desired intent, but it also preserves the relationship with our employees and means. Means that the company not only will will survive will thrive as we move into the future. That's what all these individuals are doing and I think the most recent example has been of course Dr. Burks Dr Fao Ci with Corona Virus People were decrying the fact they've been re remaining silent that that they didn't speak out more forcefully against the president's advocacy for hydroxy, chloroquine and other solutions that people thought might be kind of Kooky, but again I I heard and I've also heard. Other doctors speak openly about the fact that you have to weigh constantly. Can you do greater good for the country by remaining in your position of authority and helping to guide and shape the outcome, or do you throw up your arms in protest? Resign and have someone who's much more willing to Kowtow to the present united. States in that position, and what does come possibly look like and I I think it's tough. It's a challenging decision. You gotta make that each and every day. Did you ever hear anybody in Madison? His presence talk about invoking the twenty. Fifth Amendment to remove the President from office. Did you ever hear talk of it at all? In the Pentagon you know that's a great question. The Pentagon such a large organization. It's like any. SCUTTLEBUTT people talk. Ever someone having a serious conversation about we've hit a red line where someone might need to remove the president, I do remember though of course like the military is drawn from the civilians society right so we all come from very various political backgrounds various places around the country. You know I remember hearing couple times people lamenting if they leaned Republican. Look lamenting that man, I mean if vice president pence, where the one who kind of soon the presidency, then I think the Republican Party would be saved is kind of what I heard people talking. That's not from official I. Don't want your listeners to believe that that's some kind of a military conversation, point and I in fact I got to be careful here because I had an interview with a Japanese newspaper yesterday, and you again the perspective of them looking from the outside in towards America and one of the questions was. Is there a danger of a military coup and I myself wow. One absolutely, not nowhere close to that, but the fact that you would even think that Kinda shows you just how perilous the situation had become in the eyes of the international community. Well, let me ask another another spin on that. Since we're entertaining doomsday scenarios here. We had a guest on our podcast needed Gupta the former head of the Justice Department Civil Rights Division last week She's part of a group that is looking at all sorts of Pakalitha scenarios with the election coming up and one of them is that the president disputes the results of the election and refuses. Refuses to cede power until you know it's resolved in whatever way that is, and this is something that she said they are actively talking about considering that possibility. I don't know if you believe that that is something that could happen, but I'm curious in a situation like that. What were the military do? The president has gone beyond his constitutional authority and held onto power. What happens great question I think Americans of all flavors and stripes should be completely secure in the knowledge that there is absolutely zero chance of a military coup. Military members are incredibly well disappointed. They're trained. This would be something that would absolutely be handled by. The courts would be handled from another another process using the constitution and applicable laws as a guideline, the military would stay as far away from this as possible solely for the reason I've already mentioned that it's so important to. That civil military relationship that norm. There's zero chance military. Get involved in this so commander stock grass after all of this and after the statement. This remarkable statement that Secretary Mattis put out. What do you think his legacy is going to be and end to what extent will be affected by that? Personally professionally. I agree with a lot of what Secretary Mattis putting his letter personally I think that mattis is looking for ways to continue to bolster or salvage his legacy. He did so with his with his resignation letter, regarding Syria he wanted to show that there was a fundamental divide with what he believes and what the president believes to maybe. Diminish the fact that he'd been on any administration for two years. He's very. Madison's a very savvy political operator. There's no getting around it. You know especially for a guy who'd worn a uniform and had not been in pure politics for majority his adult life. So you know what it's going to mean for. His legacy remains to be seen I. I've been. Been surprised frankly because I was a huge madison believer. That's why I accepted the offer to come work for them. You know I've been surprised at the number of people since he's departed, who weren't as pleased with Madison's is I thought they'd be because I thought Madison Really Nice job with keeping the ship meaning the Pentagon ship on a steady course. Course getting the budget restored for two years getting the National Defense Strategy. Put out he he handled a lot of really contentious issues and I thought did so a very nice way. That kept the military out of a lot of the political fray, but I think again that's that's a distinction that gets lost on a lot of the rank and file, wearing uniforms or civilians within the department, and while they appreciate Madison his and his efforts. They realized that you know. He's now departed in and largely in the past well always difficult to predict people's legacies in in real time I guess we'll have to wait for the judgement of history, but your insights are incredibly valuable, so thank you so much. Commander SNODGRASS for coming out.
"mattis" Discussed on Skullduggery
"The president took a very impulsive reaction to to force what he wanted, but then at the same time. It's about policy, so it's hard. Hard to say that you can really separate one from the other. They're so closely woven together commander Snodgrass we've been talking mostly about Mattis, but I'm curious. You spent your career in the military. How did you view what happened? On Monday with the clearing of Lafayette Square the use of not active duty, but national guard military troops president's threat to invoke the answer insurrection act. How do you view that? How worried should the American people be about that kind of conduct by the president of the United States? And how do you think it's more widely viewed in the military, not just among the brass, but also among the rank and file. So, okay, personally I think it was the horn and the reason. Why is so for twenty years of my career? I was a navy fighter pilot right former top gun instructor I focused on operations on warfighting, and frankly loved every minute of it, and so just by happenstance I got pulled into a speechwriting job early my career for the chief of naval operations. That's the senior uniform leader for the US, Navy. Navy because of that. That's how I was on Madison radar to get pulled in for him, so I had a chance throughout my career to spend about four years as a strategic communicator and that's what I don't like about what I'm seeing with the president's decision making you know I, think the president believes it's good for his base, and maybe it is that he's being the the president of law and order. The danger comes into account where ninety nine percent of Americans will not distinguish between active duty and guard. They will not distinguish between. They're not going to deep dive into what is posse comitatus, or what is the insurrection act, and all these vary, you know convoluted laws and regulations. What they're going to see is an optic of men and women in uniform with riot, gear, guns and some. Some cases assault rifles and sniper rifles on the streets of Washington DC. They're going to immediately draw a just a very clear line from the military putting down civilians, and that's the again. That's the crux of the matter for Molin for John Allen for I think it was General Dempsey as well. He jumped into this I. Mean you've had a senior leaders, so it gets the? The second part of your question, what do the rank and file thank you? I only retired recently within the last two years. A lot of my peers are now in their kind of I. Guess You'd say Middle Senior. Leadership right there. The navy captains of the Army Marine Corps colonels. Air Force colonels and one stars. They don't like what they're seeing because again. It's putting them it's. It's pulling the military away from its apolitical nonpartisan bedrock, and you're constantly thrusting it like you, said the border wall or your thrust they get into issues of immigration, or you're throwing it into issues of policing the streets, and you risk that longstanding trust and confidence with the American public. The military's been the most trusted institution in America since the seventies and you could easily evaporate that. And we've seen other long-standing institutions have their credibility eroded like the FBI, like law enforcement during president, trump's tenure, and so you can say you like or dislike the president's policies, but I do think that the way you get. There is incredibly important, so one of the most controversial aspects of the events on Monday in terms of the optics was Mark Milley the chairman. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs in full battle, fatigue and secretary of Defense Mark Asper, participating in that photo op in front of a Saint, John's Episcopal Church. So my question to you is what J. Mattis had been secretary of defense at the time, and had been there with President trump trumpet, said, come on, let's go over to the church. What would he have done? Such a challenging question because I think the. The intellectually honest responses. It depends the way that Esperer and have both stated. This went down that they were in a meeting with the president. He basically says. Hey, let's let's go. We're going across the street and commander in chief, and so it wasn't. Let's go across the street for a photo op with the Bible. We're going to use military or police force to. To clear demonstrators to do it, so there's so much context that has to go into what happen at the moment. Yup Mattis, sometimes he runs the risk. If he's a little bit of a paper tiger, he'll, he'll come out with an amazing statement or he'll. He'll hold up these lofty ideals, but there are plenty of times during his own tenure where he would. Back Down and be very subservient to the president that he worked for, and and again I think this is something. Historians are going to chew over for a long period of time which is. You got camp. That says matter should have been more vocal in his dissent, and you've got camp that says Mattis as the appointed secretary defensive just carried out whatever president trump wanted him to do. Obviously the truth that somewhere in the middle you know. He Fed the idea that he should have spoken out earlier in that statement because I mean in the most remarkable paragraph. Talks trump as the first president of my lifetime does not try to unite the American people. We are witnessing the consequences of three years without mature leadership, so he was there for. Two of those years of serving a president without serving an administration without mature leadership that only begs the question. Why didn't you say something earlier? You know again. I think Madison's like anybody I. Mean He's a complicated individual. You can't take anything away. From the fact that he's dedicated the vast majority of his adult life to America. He served in uniform for decades. You only out of uniform around three years when he was asked by President, elect trump to come in as a secretary of defense. When you say yes to a job like that, you say. Say Yes because you believe altruistic way, you can make a difference. You all say yes, because you're very ambitious, and you want an opportunity to to jump back on the national stage, and hopefully make a positive impact and I think that underpins a lot of what mattis does. Yes, there's always an altruistic aspect. He has one of the most carefully manicured public personas of anybody I've ever met or worked for. Most leaders say I'M GONNA. I'm GonNa lead and let the chips fall where they made. Mattis was always making decisions. With an eye towards legacy. How will this reflect on me? Five years on a road ten years down the road..

"If Mattis was GONNA to slow down, he just box mattis out and publicly create policy that matters within have to enact commander I. WanNa get back to this this inflection point this breaking point that you talked about before and why Secretary Mattis decided to loosen his tongue after he said he wouldn't do that. which is the politicization of the military using the military in a domestic context? But there were moments during Madison's term when President Trump got awfully close to that kind of conduct, and one of them was I think before the midterm elections when? When he made the decision to deploy US troops to the US Mexican border. What was Mattis's response to that and did he think it was the of breach that we just saw Lafayette? square. Yeah, I think you know. Trump has long talked about his love of the military. He loves his generals and admirals, and I can see why having having worked in a pseudo political position for secretary mattis in his front office. Yeah, you have a front row seat and it's because when you're in the military. I mean your entire career Madison, for over thirty years. He had served all the way as a four star Marine. And you disagree with your boss, but you just carry out their orders, and I would say to his credit on some cases maddest would like you said with the parade. You know he'd rather swallow acid, but he would still understand the importance of carrying out what the president had asked him to do. And frankly he should I mean he'd been appointed by the president who was duly elected by the American public, so you know Madison appointed, person not an elected individual he. You know if you can't reconcile your differences with your boss, then you need to leave, but I think if you'd had someone with better political skills. You know you would realize that there's things you can do behind the scenes. Scenes to maybe helped shape the president's thinking better so largely, you know mattis would be frustrated, but he was always the good soldier, even private he he would rarely I can count on a number of times on two hands where he would either board the aircraft after particularly contentious meeting overseas with something that the president had done like an unannounced twitter feed, blast or something that would complicate his efforts at NATO or complicated efforts in the Middle East meaning complicate Madison to serve as the President's representative yet he would come on. He would kind of I roll, or he'd say something for about ten fifteen seconds about his displeasure, and then it was okay. We've got a job to do. Let's get it. It done. How would he express his displeasure? Like I said I mean you know he's such an amazingly controlled individual. He'll use invective. He'll be upset and frustrated. I've seen him throw some stuff before because of his just sheer level of stress and frustration, but again I mean he. He's long been here aren't to stoicism. He believes in trying to master control of yourself, realizing that you gotta take the world as it comes not as you necessarily want to be, and he's got such depth of history and so much experience as a senior leader in the military that I think he realizes look I mean taking out your frustration on your subordinates or acting petulance, not gonNa really get you anywhere. Anywhere it's it's you just have to roller sleeves. Get to work and go. But how did he react to trump's decision to deploy troops to the border, was he did he support that, did he? Just salute? Did he oppose it and salute I mean what was his reaction to that? Sure, so it's reaction was one of I. Think you know initially because this memory serves that really came to a head kind of in the springtime like you mentioned in advance of the midterms, so it was it president trump wanted to employees active duty troops to the border. Mattis was slaying him towards using members of the guard or serve so you can stay away from active duty in Madison always such a well-founded. What's the rules regulation? He was very concerned of course about posse comitatus and the use of active-duty troops for law enforcement purposes. We have the representatives from the Office of the the attorneys for the Department of Defense who would come in on a routine basis to brief Madison what was legal? What was not so? He was I, mean he wanted to. I think what matters always did and I thought for the most part did really nice job of this was he understood the president's intent, but he sought to enact it in a way that was always legal, always ethical. If you had to break down. How much of Mattis's frustrations were policy oriented? His disagreement with the president's wanting to pull out of international treaties and agreements versus the sort of erratic behavior of the president personally and the his failure to take in information to Listen to briefings to listen to what subordinates had to say. How would you navigate between those two matters? You know I really don't think you can there so. Let's take for example the president's decision to. Deny transgender individuals the opportunity to serve in the military, so they're. If you look at that from a policy standpoint, Mattis understood the president's intent and desire to take that path. But, he also knew it was going to be incredibly contentious is it would definitely be challenged in the courts, so Madison took a pathway to form a study to use a data intensive approach, basically something that would be defensible or at least have a veneer of being defensible in front of the courts in, and that's when you had those series of three tweets. Come out from the president. Basically while Mattis was on vacation, saying here's what we're GONNA do make it happen, and so so they're so intertwined..

"Isikoff investigative correspondent for Yahoo News and Dan Kleinman editor in chief of Yahoo News I think it's fair to say that. A lot of people were blown away by Madison's statement, not just that he spoke out, although that was pretty extrordinary in and of itself, but those were amazingly stinging words that he says about his former boss, the president and it's so out of keeping Mattis. A Marine General Guy who's respected chain of command all his life, his kept silent ever since he resigned at the end of two thousand eighteen, but you know man when he finally chose to go public. It was more than I think anybody ever expected. He. He said he violated the Constitution. I mean basically he said that the president of the United States in going after protesters in the way that he did was a violation of the United States Constitution Constitution that all members of the military are sworn to uphold, and there have been many other retired generals who have spoken out against president trump, but none had the weight of Jim Mattis. Some Republican recently described it somewhere between Ronald Reagan, and the pope so so some circles. But look not all, but can I just say what prompted this? Okay? Madison's pointing to sending military troops to police the streets of American cities, and it is worth pointing out that like much else with Donald Trump. You know there's a big talk. Blustery Talk. Trump has talked about invoking the insurrection act. He's talked about bringing in the military to. To crack down, but let's be clear. He hasn't actually done it. Yes, National Guard has been called out in Washington DC but what? What what what happened on Monday? Yeah it was. White is but mean, but it wasn't active duty military. Like any was so. It was military troops under the supervision of the president of the United States. They don't report to the Chief Executive of Washington DC, unlike every other state where the governor they report to the governor in Washington DC, they report to the commander in chief, so he activated military troops to no, no, no wait hold on the disbursement of the protesters in Lafayette Square involve as art is done by the park police. Police Guard and other federal agencies and some National Guard. I'm just making the distinction between National Guard which has been used in many instances, you know almost every year to help with some national catastrophe, a right hurricane, or whatever historically by Kennedy and by Johnson to an historically by by Kennedy and Johnson and Eisenhower for like the opposite purposes, which would to say to deal with the racism in this country so. Look what happened. As we have pointed out into the last show was horrible, and was clearly a a violation of the rights of those protesters to peacefully demonstrate about something that is is clearly a case of blatant racist police brutality question about that, but I want to just broaden this to the point. I made in the opening their. That Madison statement is contagious. Have come late. Others may have spoken I. Like, Admiral. Mullen for instance the day before Mattis, spoke out, but then you have no sooner. Does he do this than Lisa Murkowski goes public and says she's struggling with other. She can even weather. She can even support president trump for reelection, and then Charles. Grassley of all people finally get some spine on the inspector general issue the firing of those. Saying, he's going to hold up as chairman of the Senate Finance Committee appointments by the President, unless he provides an explanation for his firing of inspectors general. So I you know there may, this may have been a moment in which the needle has moved as a result of Mattis. I think we said the other day that this was a kind of a watershed moment. In terms of this presidency, you put it in the context of other moments like this with hoover and I can't remember the other. Daily in Chicago, Convention Right Nineteen Sixty Eight and I think when people look back at this moment you know twenty years from now it's going to loom large, but I also get the census. You're saying that actually in the moment it's having real impact, and also you mentioned the some of the General's General Allen Jon Allen. Who's been on our podcast also went after the president in an oppy foreign policy, and just today is were recording this podcast on Friday General John Kelly. The president's former chief of staff who has criticized him since he's left office, but in fairly muted terms came to the defense of Mattis for his statement and I'll read you what he said I think we need to look harder at who we. I think we should look at people that are running for office and put them through the filter. What is what is their character like? What are their ethics? Some people have said that that's a backhanded slap at trump i. don't think there's anything. Back saying, we have to look harder at who we elect I E, we should not have elected donald trump, so that is from Donald, trump's former homeland, security secretary, and his former chief of staff the White House Chief of staff under Donald Trump so you have the former chief of staff, the former secretary of defense, both of them, speaking out against the president. They once served I. Don't can't think of a precedent for this, can you? That no I mean it's not even ember. Off. Watergate, not even the Nixon era did cabinet secretaries or former cabinet secretaries as far as I recall break with him for all of the criminality. John Dean did but the. White House Counsel Right, yeah, but you know at this level people who were so close to a sitting president speaking out and denouncing him is pretty extreme. We'll see how to see whether whether this is sustained it all and today also as we record this podcast, the president got and the country got good news, which is that the job numbers came out and unemployment actually went down by several points to a little more than thirteen percent low more than thirteen percent. The expectation among everyone was that it was going to be close to twenty percent..

"This problem of making a globally consistent database. This is obviously been noticed by other people in the industry cloud providers other vendors told me about the design decisions that Cockroach DB has made that contrast with the other attempts the other companies that are are building globally consistent sequel infrastructure. Yes so there are some other startups in the space. Some of them born out of academic research one that comes to mind. There's DB's porn out of research project. Called Calvin so one of the reasons that the Calvin research was shown. Here's how you do. Distributed global distributed transactions. The caveat they have is all you need to specify the operations in your transaction up front and you know there's I've heard claims from the folks that they know how to do interactive sequel transactions. And let me make sure. I'm clear what I mean by. Interactive transactions and your actor transaction or conversational transaction is one where the application starts transaction. Does some operations gets. The results applies application logic. That's present inside the application itself. Does mother operations can do this multiple times and then commits the transaction. So this is a very common pattern inside. Applications does itself fund to be or at least Calvin was saying. Hey if you could actually specify everything about the transaction front we can do some really deep techniques inside the database in order to optimize it and yet he comes with his big caveat and a significant change in how applications have to be architect it and we feel that that change is a big burden and Gabia a big headwind against their adoption. There's a company out of China Pink Cap which developed database called. Ti has yours a lot of similarities with the COCKROACH TB architecture but they have some differences. Some of their stuff is more centralized or not as focused on geographic replication. As we are then we have some of the big players. I mean clearly spanner which we share a lot of the architectural decisions with spanner. Google doesn't seem to be pushing hard as I would've expected. I think they could be pushing it harder. Amazon and Aurora auroras offing offering kind of some geographic distribution now but currently current architecture involves a single master. We've been talking about having multi master Aurora for a while and I don't know if that's been a chemical if that's been released yet but I mean there was quite a big difference. Between having a single master note that has to coordinate stuff and becomes bottleneck versus allowing any node to having the cluster scale out to enormous number of nodes and in the competitive landscape. You know operating a business as well as building a complex distributed database. One thing I wonder is. How do you convey the subtle engineering differences to the end? User like is the end user is the developer market discriminating enough to be able to see the differences between those different database architectures. Or does it come down to to kind of marketing. I think there's a lot of marketing involved. Certainly there is subset of developer community. That is discriminating. Can't understand these differences you know. Are these the early adopters or is it archer that not quite sure? There's certainly a lot of marketing. I mean sequel databases when they first come out you know came out into existence thirty or forty years ago must have been incredibly confusing complex in it over time. We figure out the right way to explain these differences and explain them in a way that makes sense. I think we're still working on. This is a work in progress in. Its something needs to be focused on. You figure out how to translate the kind of expert terminology into analogy. That makes sense for everybody. We're still working on that. We'll probably be working on that for the lifetime. The company frankly have you changed the implementation of cockroach. Db SIGNIFICANTLY SINCE COOPER. Netease came out so the answer is yes but not because of Cooper Netease so the internal plantation of Kaku. Tb is constantly seen enhancements to give you one. Concrete example of that are distributed. Transaction Protocol has evolved significantly since the first implementation the version of the shooter transaction protocol version. One Point Oh verses. What's currently in the day? They're significantly different. The current version significantly better cynically faster lower latency gets better parallelism but all that came about not commodities so Kuwaitis clearly. This tidal wave is taking over the industry. And it just happened to coincide with the way cockroach. Db nicely just meshes with the Cougar nineties architecture. And we've done some minor adjustments fitted more cleanly or continued. Do some justice for looking right. Now we're building out a specific COCKROACH DP operator to make the cockroach experience even better. But they're having been like a huge architectural changes necessary and I think that was more luck than anything else so in addition to architect tting. Cockroach D BE. You have to stand it up on the cloud providers or you have to figure out a repeatable architecture pattern when a developer stands up a cockroach DB instance on aws for example. What happens when they deploy it? I'd like to know more about what happens in the design and the deployment of a cloud product like and you have to make this comply for both. Aws Angie's EP. So like I don't know if you're if you build it with entirely kind of like open source pieces or or like deploying on. Aws use the aws load balancing infrastructure and deploying it on GDP GDP load balancing infrastructure. What's the process of getting this thing? Stood up on a cloud provider. Yeah so I mean there's a choice here in the first division is. Is this a customer stand up on? Aws or JCP. They have all this flexibility and what they can decide to do. They can use open source tools for load balancing. They can use the aws load balancer. We generally see people using Hubert. Eddie is now and he's also in low barrier Thursday inside of it as well so that that's kind of first decision then there's also you know. Do you want even be running yourself. And this is where we had this product coverage cloud. Which is we want to run the database for you running anything in the cloud rain. Any system is challenging and we won't take that off developers in taken upon ourselves and frankly we're the experts in cockroach. Tb We should be able to run it better than you which people to run more efficiently. We should be able to say problems. Make sure everything set up correctly so when we're running Kakuchi for you and on cockroach cloud we support currently AWS MTC EP in. We're running these cockroach. Clusters on top of Cooper. Netease what we've decided to do though is to use the you know the native.

It does add more burden but that's burnt. We feel we should be taking on nece- how this plays out those you know. We haven't had his support for. Azure.

Api's and just make them some metric across all the cloud providers but we're certainly not in that world. What do you think is the market size for distributed consistent sequel databases? I really hope it's huge so I'm not sure what the market size at say right now is for your traditional sequel databases but it's in the thirty forty fifty billion range. I expect that you know suck cockroach. Db We don't see it as taking up a niche spot in there we see taking up significant spot. Anything you've traditionally used a normal kind of single node sequel database for US cockroach. Dvd in that same mode so cockroach runs perfectly fine on a single node advantages. You know oh I want high availability at a couple more news. Clustering Kennedy kind of Just easy there's no headache there so our expectation is you know. We want to capture up and down that ended the that entire spectrum of the market not just occupying purely high end. Clusters have hundreds of notes. And we see this. We have many many customers five. Ten twenty no clusters perfectly. Happy there with the expectation as their systems growth. Just continue to expand their clusters so the idea is really to be a pure successor to my sequel or post grass as sequel infrastructure that scales more reliably more readily. Yeah absolutely and we're also looking scaling down the other way you know. There's a certain minimum node size. You have for my sequences. Let's get lower than that. Let's get smaller. That can you tell me more? But that like how can you shrink the typical size of a sequel deployment? Well thought that when she shrink the size of it but just consider right. Now you're using you dilute g mail for email if you don't you're from another planet as far as I'm concerned but you using some kind of hosted email service you don't have a dedicated machine and data center running your email. Your emails being shared inside a much larger system to probably like you know somewhere. Google there's a cluster with thousands machines and you're occupying a fraction of some subset of those machines the experiences you have your emails. I could email database just just for you. I mean we can do the same with a cockroach. Cluster of subdivide even a cockroach cluster give thousand users of perception that. They're getting their own. You kind of custom cluster. Even though it's being represented in implement on the back end across on top of a single much larger cluster. So you know it's kind of giving that perception versus rowdy. Another example of this is just the virtualization of hardware ego and you start the 'em up an Amazon. You're not going to dedicate machine. You're getting of a fraction machine. And it's all kind of you know. Smoking Beers isn't quite the right phrase but it's all taking the back end to take a physical machine that might have ninety six cores and give you one. Cpu of that or a fraction of a CPA. Even give me a lesson in engineering management. That you've learned since starting cockroach five years ago. That's a great question. No the thing that frequently comes to mind is communication. You just have to communicate over communicate and say the same thing again and not be surprised. When there's some population you know some subset of your engineering population. The here's something or is confused by something. It's just bound to happen. I think you know prior to Cocker's DB worked on smaller teams. Let's Martinsson felt like easy enough to get everybody on the same page. Just as you scale and you grow just have to you know. Just get that Zen attitude that into that question last week. I'm going to answer it again. This week is giving the same.
"mattis" Discussed on NBC Meet the Press
"His presidency has benefited from not having to face a financial or international crisis. But perhaps now we need to face this uncomfortable question what if the president is the crisis, the shutdown hopefully will not last law. President Trump ended a week of chaos as cracks emerged in his fragile Republican coalition. It's really the democrat shut down which is days ago. The president claimed credit I will take the mantle I will be the one to shut it. And some Republicans are making it clear. They hold him responsible for the third government shutdown this year after he rejected a deal negotiated earlier this week. I'll just remind. And the president and the Republicans are in charge. And so the shutdown is on us if we can't figure this out on Friday, the president yielded depressure from conservative supporters, the wall the wall will have to be built a scandal. That has bell president has gotten word to me that he is either getting funding for the border or he shutting the whole thing. Down retiring Republican Senator Bob corker responded, do we succumb to tyranny of talk radio show. Hosts the reason we're here we have a couple of talk radio hosts that get the president spun up and on Capitol Hill, reliable Republican allies were shaken by the abrupt resignation of Defense Secretary. Jim Mattis who broke with the president on his decision to pull US troops out of Syria, writing pointedly. You have the right to have a secretary of defense whose views are better aligned with yours. I think he sort of a democrat. If you wanna know the truth, Senate Republicans respond. Bonded, uneasily leader. Mitch McConnell who rarely breaks with the president publicly called himself, particularly distressed that. He's resigning due to sharp differences with the president. Secretary Mattis decision to leave ambassadors of our allies have been reaching out to senators to basically say what the hell is going on the president also Ilian aided Republican hawks on the Syria decision it self which he abruptly announced on Twitter on Wednesday. We won. And that's the way we want it. And that's the way that they want it. This isn't a Kintu surrendering curious total quagmire, but it's possible to make it even worse Russian President Putin hailed the move reliable Trump ally, Fox.

"You have a volunteer army, but these are people who basically sign up for jobs and skills training, and then wind up in these. Situations where they're not even interested or invested in know that their, you know, their compatriots back home or not interested in invest in these conflicts, Syria. It shouldn't be a debate between Trump and Mattis it should be debate in congress. Right. That's how it's supposed to supposed to work and to Henry's point. What's happened is kind of all though, you know, abnormal on many many levels. It's normal in that. It's this is the process that always happens to president comes in. He's campaigned on something all the wise establishment types in national security jobs. Talk them out of it kinda resisted you saw the bomber. And Afghanistan's why he initially surge in Afghanistan didn't want to do it. He kind of got talked into it. And then then over time the president kind of figures out. Well, you know, I'm here, you know, I was the one who is elected, and I'm gonna enforce my well Bush kind of did it in his democracy project law is bureaucracy and his officials weren't as interested or committed to it as as he was and he prevailed in his views among for better worse prevailed. His views for better worst. Trump's going to prevail in his views with respect to you know, congress. This is a simple thing. Congress could do congress could declare war on ISIS. They could get together and actually pass a resolution to declare war and commit the United States to a combat and doesn't force the president to do anything of. Then you use the power of the purse, my point is that congress has power to try and force a debate. And force the president to act, you know, the president is holding up a government shutdown over his border security will if congress wants to commit to funding in Syria, they should formerly declare war, and formerly place funds segregated in the budget that can only be spent for that and start a negotiation with the president. It hasn't been done. But the fact is we have a president who has strongly outside of the bipartisan consensus, and if congress wants to assert it they need to do more than simply complain they need to act and they need to listen to their constituents. Right. I mean, it you see a lot of pro war sentiment in congress is not reflected in the population at large. I mean, I. I would hope that you know, if there was an actual debate in congress. It would reflect what their constituents on the American people want. I'm not sure the American people want to go into another Iraq or Afghanistan hopes of declaring war on terrorists. I think there there is a popular case that can be made for the Syria intervention that ought to be convincing in part because it is not on the scale of Iraq or Afghanistan. It was a relatively small troop commitment. But I do agree that it, you know, it's a it's a case that that ought to be made and probably should have been made more and hasn't been because aside from Trump there's been a consensus in favor of doing this. I want to ask rich though, because I think I've heard from you over and over on this show is how the president is constrained on foreign policy by the Republican establishment. And this is part of why you've been more satisfied than you might have expected with his presidency that on Russia and on various other issues. There are things that maybe the president wants to do. But he's been unable to do because he's hemmed in by bureaucrats and people like James Mattis, it looks like that's breaking down. This is the first major break of that sort. But they're there. There could be a lot more that come after it who knows whether he'll try to take us out of NATO, or whatever you don't you? Don't look that alarm today. I would think given your. Alarmed the week after we found out about the Trump Tower meeting you. A little arm. But so I mean, isn't this like what the like the acceptability of the Trump presidency has been resting on for you. And it looks like that might be falling apart. Yes. So I'm not a Trump supporter so much, but it had have been supportive of the administration..

"That the president takes advice from generals, but he makes the decisions in the end. How do you handle this? When the president takes decisions that do seem to be at odds with the with the advice of the experts who he chooses to be closest to him. Well, that's just said he's looking for. Yes. People surround him, and Jim Madison, I think was the person who would raise issues and questions and also challenge some of the points that Mr. Trump might raise in these meetings who now is left to challenge Mr. Trump when he decides to move down some road, whether it be with in Syria, Iran, North Korea, and some of these other areas, China and Russia people have to be able to speak up and bring to Mr. Trump. And to that discussion, the voice of reason and experience and Jim Mattis was that person John Kelly. I think also is that person. And so now, we are left with people. Who are? Yes, men, whether it be Mike Pompeo where John Bolton or others. These are individuals who have not demonstrated any backbone and spine in terms of standing up Jim Mattis, I think he has been true to who he has been throughout the Christmas life, which is a patriot and dedicated loyal to this country. So you like we need black backbone when he spied and we'd some degree of sophistication John Brennan just mentioned Syria, Iran, North Korea, Russia, all pressing national security issues for the United States, and there are others. We haven't mentioned what's your reporting? Tell you about what happens next. Well, I think people inside the White House. Really don't know what happens next. There was a lot of you could see this coming just looking at the relationship between these two men, but this happening today. Amidst all these other things that are happening the government shutdown being right on the edge the market dropping. There are a lot of other confirmation hearings at the congress is going to have to take up come twenty nine thousand nine just so much on this White House as plate and inside you talk to people. They really don't know who's going to be in the building come January just given the revolving door a lot of people not wanting to be part of this administration. You saw the difficulty of the president had in recent days just getting somebody to sign on to be chief of staff. So it is we've talked about this being a chaotic administration a chaos president for a long time, but that's sort of reaching a new level at the end of the year here, especially with the president of looking ahead seeing a Democratic Congress in that in the house and the ability to subpoena out of information make his life more difficult in two nine thousand nine it's just a very uncertain time. There. And I think the consequences just in terms of what you're talking about. And the challenges that we confront around the world that the next secretary of defense will have to these are very serious challenges. In addition to what's facing, the president politically, and we don't really know at this point who's going to come in and to sort of confront them on his behalf. Well, said thank you ally. Stoeckel John Brennan Evelyn Farkas. Thanks for your analysis coming up the stock market drop. The government is going to shut down and still house. Republican state loyal to President Trump today. Democratic congressman Tim Ryan joins me next. We also have breaking news from the department of Justice NBC news has just obtained the memo explaining why acting attorney general MAC Whitaker will not recuse himself from the special counsel investigation. And Michael Moore is here to respond to the utter chaos. That is happening in Washington DC today, and what it means for the new democratic house majority..

"We named Shirley, I greatly. Thank Jim for service. Good old. Jim, you know, Jim down at the I don't know the whole thing to me. Thanks for the purchase of new fighting equipment. The whole thing to me sounded like. That's second grade. Level bullshit. I'm sorry. I. It was almost dismissive of them. I think by calling them Jin little those little bit suspectful to be calling them. Jim like you. I don't think he goes by Jim doors. No, I know that. But I think what you're talking about his service and you're talking about his retirement, give the minutes distinction of coin of General Mattis he earned that. Yeah. I it's the whole thing. I see there's a lot of things that I don't agree with. I think it's fine. I think the way that he went about saying, thank you. If I would much prefer that level of tweet like thank you for your servicing for everything you did. Then the converse of what we've seen so many time when somebody leaves like what Tillerson? This guy is Doug was about so rocks. Like that kinda shit. I'd much prefer his even if it's simple pleasantries to go. And after secretary Mattis for sure. Yeah. It's just that. So then who's up next who's up next in the shoot? I don't know. But I'm again, I'm not going to be satisfied till Mattis draft mix. Tell US Secretary Kate Kate I won't be satisfied till Jim Robson drops a hot rap beef brat battle on Trump. That's what I expect for what we should do. We should have Rhone come in with secretary Madison just drop like a district after distract after district. One thing that I hope comes out of this is I mean, I hope that we get an another good secretary defense. I hope that secretary Mattis General Mattis goes back to his house in sleeps for four weeks with cucumbers. Yes. And cucumbers on his is because we we've said before for Terry Mattis has duffle blogs underneath his eyes. So bad. He does he needs a split. The guys the guy's been stressed out for decades. He's he needs a good a good spot. Maybe a few week long vacation. He deserves it. I love that in his free time. Let's let's stop there with the secretary Mattis talk. One more thing about secretary Mattis, Kate if you're secretary Mattis after forty years of service in the Marine Corps secretary defense. What's the first vacation that you're taking after you leave that office? I'm going to Iceland. I'm getting nude hopping in and nice warm natural hot spring. I'm like, and I want like Some Marines on vacation, it'd be like holy shit. If that Mattis. Yeah. That's what I'm doing. What about you guys? Cons. What are you doing for forty years? I'm just I'm with Kate. I'm going somewhere that I could just be naked the entire time. Not having to worry about a suit a uniform, and I could just sit naked and eat ice cream on. Agree. You guys thinking about secretary Mattis being naked is a little bit weird and kind of concerning. He's still an all this, dude. I mean, he's still like fucking seventy years old at this point. Secretary Mattis what I'm doing is. Because I've been a general level officer an officer period in the Marine Corps for so long that, you know, deep down inside that he's always wanted to go. Check out the banana lady in Okinawa. I've been a brass oh shit. They're just so my legend continues to grow go to like, the headquarters Marine Corps base over there and start brass oh in the eagle wilbon anchor..

"Nato's Twenty-nine democracies demonstrated that strength in their commitment to fighting alongside us following the nine eleven attack on America, the defeat ISIS coalition of seventy four nations is further proof. John. Yes. And that's why I think that's Mr. Trump's decision about withdrawing so precipitously from Syria was the culmination for Jim Mattis of a series of decisions on the part of Mr. Trump that really are diamond damaging to US Nash security interests. And so, you know, Jim, I think just was quite frankly fed up. But also, I think he was very concerned about the security related to a very very quick withdrawal of US military forces one things that you mass was known for is making sure that operational security is going to be paramount even during a retrograde or withdrawal of US military forces and for Mr. Trump to so capriciously, an arbitrarily decide that they're going to be out in a very quick period of time. It's also going to be seen and is seen as an abandonment of our partners and allies that we have worked with very closely over the last several years. And so I'm sure that there is great frustration and exactly within the US military right now about. What is happening and what we're going to be leaving behind and Mattis seems to be making a reference to something that goes beyond just these alliances. The last few years that you're talking about he seemed to be making particularly in his NATO comments reference to really almost eighty years of American leadership of of liberal democracy in which he says, we must do this is in his resignation letter. We must do everything possible to advance an international order that is most conducive to our security, prosperity and values, and we are strengthened in this effort by the solidarity of our alliances. John Brennan that that sentence could have been written fifty years ago sixty years ago, seventy years ago at the end of World War Two he is saying that this is something that we have been committed to as a nation for decades that he seems to imply we're slipping away from. Yes. And Jim recognizes that US America's military economic and political might is not just a result of our. Tremendous capabilities resources because we've had this leadership role certainly less seventy five years where we've been able to bring together alliances and partnerships and coalitions so that we can fight these forces that are determined to undermine global security. I also find it noteworthy that not a single word of praise to Jim Mattis include in that letter for Mr. Trump unprecedented. There's not a single word of appreciation praise of these this administration mister Trump, John if you'll stand by what I need your continued analysis to get through this complicated evening, but joining us now our allies stow calls White House correspondent for the Los Angeles time in Evelyn Farkas senior fellow at the German Marshall fund, a former deputy assistant secretary of defense in an MSNBC national security analyst, she's a colleague of Jim Madison who has worked with him for over twenty years. I wanna play for you Evelyn something that Senator Bob corker who's been bit of a. Leading thicker on on foreign policy in the United States. The outgoing Senator said on October in October of two thousand seventeen about people including Madison, let's listen. I think sector, Tillerson secretary Mattis and. Chief of staff Kelly. Are those people that help separate our country from chaos? It's a serious statement separate our country from chaos as Rachel maddow's says Donald Trump does not like to hear references to adults in the room or or people who keep them away from from danger. But the truth is lots of people thought that was what matters was doing. And with the departure of Tillerson, they sort of thought this might be the last man standing Allen, I spoke to secretary Mattis before he took office. So before he became secretary of defense. He called me to ask about Russia related things. And at the time, I said something to him like, please keep us safer, some sort of veiled thing because I knew there were probably other people listening on the phone, and he said, that's exactly my intent. And there was something about the way that he said it I knew exactly that we were communicating to one another. Meaning he was the type of person who took the response..

"Commentators personalities, like Ann Coulter and members of the house freedom caucus warned that if he didn't veto the Senate passed measure that failed to fund the wall he would lose his core supporters. If it wasn't obvious that Trump was controlled by these right wing factions. Rush Limbaugh made it clear with this announcement. I just received clearance. The president has gotten word to me. That he is either getting funding for the border or he shutting the whole thing down. All right. Put this all together and figure out where we are. Now House Republicans had the votes tonight to add the five billion dollars in border wall funding to the resolution that would fund the government beyond tomorrow night. So now that goes back to the Senate we which will reconvene tomorrow at noon, Mitch McConnell is told senators many of whom thought their work was done when they passed a continuing resolution to keep the government open last night that they need to come back to DC tomorrow and vote on what the house just passed. But let me be clear. This is a non starter in the Senate. There's no way that wall funding is going to pass in the Senate doesn't have the sixty votes needed sixty and Republicans know that sources earlier today told NBC news there was no long term game plan for Republicans the desire among the GOP was to be seemed to be fighting for that wall. There was literally no plan beyond that, even if it led to a shutdown so. There's a ton influx at the moment as to where exactly we will end up. There's only one thing for certain the drama will drag on for another day all of this chaos sent stocks plummeting. The Dow Jones dropped almost four hundred seventy points today bringing its five day losses to more than seventeen hundred points. That's your 4._0._1._K and the bad news doesn't end for Trump and B C news is reporting tonight that special counsel. Robert Muller is quote is nearing the end of his historic investigation and is expected to submit a confidential report to the attorney general as early as mid February leading off our conversation tonight. Former CIA director John Brennan, he's a senior national security and intelligence analyst for MSNBC and NBC news. John good to see you. Thank you for being with us. How do you read this? And I want to put this in the context of the fact that in an administration where so many officeholders and cabinet secretaries are doubted by the American public in an administration that constantly leads us to. Question its capacity for leadership and governance. Mattis was an exception. Let's right Allie. Jim Mattis is the consummate military defense professional. He is a soldier soldier widely respected within the Pentagon within the US armed forces. And a great voice of reason, sanity common sense and experience within this ministration. And so his decision to leave whether he was forced to or decided he can no longer abide by what is happening. This ministration is a great loss for our country, and it should be seen as a very worrisome development that Mr. Trump continues to take these rather irresponsible and pulse of and reckless actions to the detriment of national security. Jim Mattis is somebody who we all in previous administrations had greatly admired and respected. And we're very glad that he was at the helm of the US military as secretary of defense. So his departure is something that I think we also be very concerned about I want to just read you a statement that was put out by Mitch McConnell who has. As you know. And Casey hunt points out very rarely breaks with the president in public. And he said, I was particularly distressed that. He meaning Mattis is resigning due to sharp differences with the president on these and other key aspects of America's global leadership. John, that's really the issue. It's not that that Mattis's residing people resign. It is that he has stated very clearly in his letter to the president which Nancy Pelosi says Americans should read they should read. He's stating that Donald Trump seems to have policy interests that align with our adversaries and don't align. Very specifically with our allies. Can I just read you this excerpt from the letter in which he said, we must use all tools of American power to provide for the common defense, including providing effective leadership to our alliances..

"It's time for the last word with Alli belching. Was I needed a belly laughing? You the the point the conversation. The Michael about the Defense Secretary being an adult in the room, though, is very worrisome, isn't it that apparently that characterization bugged the president a lot the him being gone is is even more read. You'll have a good evening. We'll see you tomorrow. Thanks good. Everyone tonight is a very big night here. Former CIA director John Brennan will join me shortly to discuss the growing national security crisis. That is facing this administration later in the hour. Michael Moore will react to this historic day of turmoil. But we begin with an administration and a president in chaos. Total chaos and just because we say that a lot doesn't make it any less. True Defense Secretary James Mattis went out with a bang today announcing he is leaving his post at the end of February NBC news is reporting. That madness went to the White House this afternoon in presented Trump with a resignation letter which Trump then read in front of him, then they had. Was phrased to our reporters as a quote difference of opinion. It's no surprise wife. You read the letter in it Mattis rights, you have the right to a secretary of defense whose views are better aligned with yours citing differences between their approach to quote countries who strategic interests are increasingly intention with ours. Mattis goes on distress, quote, my views on treating allies with respect and being clear about both malign actors and strategic competitors are strongly held and informed by over four decades of immersion in these issues and quote, one senior national security official described the loss of madness. Like this. The wheels are coming off. Here's house minority leader Nancy Pelosi tonight. Hakin by the news because of the patriot that general secretary Mattis is I think that everybody in the country should read his letter of resignation. It's a letter of great patriotism respect for the president. But also a statement of his values. Secretary Mattis is leaving in a critical moment for this administration. Just yesterday. The president announced a troop withdrawal from Syria. And there are new reports that the president is considering withdrawing troops from Afghanistan. Retired General Barry McCaffrey put the situation like this to Chuck Todd. It only two people national security that are vital to the safety. The American people once a sector to bench and the other is a homeland security secretary. The ladder probably is about to go. Also, losing secretary Mattis ought to be of concern not just to combat troops. But also the American people. The president's profound political limitations have been on full display this week as the country kareem's toward a government shutdown one source close to the president has described him as quote one hundred percent in a tailspin. Trump torpedo to spending deal over his demand for five billion dollars in border wall. Funding refusing to sign a stopgap measure to keep funds flowing past Friday at midnight seems the president is leading a handful of hard right politicians and media personalities governed the country for him once Trump appeared to waver on that border wall promised Fox News.

"Having a confrontation over them. Exactly if he did slow walk, though, totally did there were other ones too. I mean, there were ones that weren't as well reported like when President Trump wanted to pull all dependence off the Korean peninsula secretary Mattis just slow rolled that. But in this case, if you if you look at Syria, you know, there's only maybe two thousand ISIS fighters left in Syria. They're in a relatively small pocket in the next couple of months, the the this Syrian democratic forces in the US could probably have cleaned that out. So why now? All this is what this does right now is it leaves them there for the potential for them to maybe re to grow maybe to be able to start inspiring attacks outside of the region in the US in in Europe, something like that that's one of the big concerns. But then there's also the concern that this is going against the Syrian democratic forces, the white PG, the herbs who are who are fighting there who've been a very consistent strong partner to the US and the coalition, and this is abandoning them with Mattis leaving in the way that he's leaving and relieving over these issues as you are describing them. Do you think it's possible that this may precipitate some wider break or additional resignations or some bigger confrontation or chasm between the White House and the and the Pentagon, so one of the first things I started asking about when I heard about this after the shock wore off was, you know, does this mean that we're gonna see some general officers resigned as well? So imagine if you're imagine if you're the commander of operation Iraqi operation inherent resolve which is the Iraq and Syria mission and your. Pulling all of your troops out. And you're abandoning this ally who you're spending all this time building a relationship with, you know, imagine if you're the head of Centcom right now, you know, so I wouldn't be surprised. I haven't heard about anything. But that's really the next big thing that I'm looking for is. Are we going to see military resignations over this? Yes. Yes. NBC news national security, reporter, Cardi Kuby. Thank you. First of all, I wanna say thank you for being here. Thank you also for being such help to me. And my producers every damn day that we cover stuff and need to call it. Call you for your help in understanding the stuff. Thank you the best team. I love you guys. Senator Chris Murphy is going to be joining us live in just a moment. Stay with us. There is chaos now in this administration. This week was one of the most chaotic weeks we've ever seen in American government. And amazingly they want to close the week. President Trump does by shutting down the government shutting down the government. Now, we all know that secretary Mattis had real disagreements with the president on Syria and on the wall. Some speculated that the president was going to demand that he'd start building a wall, which he knows he can't do by law. And maybe that's one of the reasons he stepped down had leaders, great leaders who have left the administration in dismay and the rest of them have left in disgrace. That's what this administration has been about. We don't want to be fearmongers in terms of our country this great country can withstand just about anything. But it shouldn't have to it shouldn't have to there's. Yes. I am shaken by the resignation of General Mattis for what it means our country for the message it sends to our troops. And for the indication of what? His view is of the commander in chief. Tonight in reaction to the surprise resignation of the Defense Secretary James Mattis, you heard the remarks from New York Senator Chuck Schumer, the leader of the Democrats in the Senate and from Nancy Pelosi, the incoming speaker of the house. Tonight in reaction to that resignation. I will tell you that one of the leading lights on foreign policy in his party, Senator Chris Murphy, democrat of Connecticut was even more blunt about it. He said this tonight in response, quote, a secretary of defense quitting over a public disagreement with the president who's foreign policy. He believes has gone off the rails is a national security crisis. No way around it. Joining us now is Senator Chris Murphy democrat of Connecticut, a number of the formulations committee Senator really appreciate being here today..

"As has been evidenced time and time again so secretary of defense james mattis said that the us has no evidence that syrian government used the banned nerve agents seren against its own people this assertion file flies in the face of the white house memorandum which rapidly produced which rebelled produced in declassified to justify the american tomahawk missile strike in the air base in syria to guess remember right after trump guy came into office the uh in a war was in full swing and we were we were bombed the crap out a mobile there and then all of a sudden we at eu trump decided he was going to launch this tomahawk missile attack on this on this airbase now the interesting thing that came out of that is they didn't actually like kill anybody and i don't think that they destroyed any of the airfields it was i don't know what they they unleashed a like a unleashed hell on this air base and they killed absolutely noone and they damaged in no runways so i am not exactly sure what all that firepower was used for but i imagine it may for pretty nice bonfires after it was on um and so but the justification for that assault the justification for that attack was that assad had used seren gas against these people in there that wasn't the first time they actually had won back in two thousand thirteen which justified us actually going in there so the claim has always been that assad is a terrible terrible dictator who brutalized as his people and gases them into submission and he must be stopped in order to purge the middle east of this vile oppressive human being now i honestly don't know iit's clearly a dictator righty clearly runs with an iron fist but if you were in damascus prior to us baumann the crap out of him what you would find as you would find a thriving city where people of many different religions many different creeds all live together under one roof that you had a christians and jews and muslims who all lived there together this was not a this was that it was not.
