How Will the Next Oklahoma Senator Confront the McGirt Case?

"Great to have you back. Alex is a member of the Nixon seminar. I've known him for a half dozen years. He was chief of staff at the National Security Council served four years in the Trump White House, as I said, a crowded field in Oklahoma, where I've got to ask you about the abortion decision, but I also want to know about the mcgirt decision and whether how much of that matter in this field, Alex grey. Well, I think the mcgurk case is not only the most important issue facing Oklahoma on day to today level. It's the most important issue. I think in determining the type of senator that oklahomans are going to have. And I say that because it's one of those issues where a lot of special interests who have been pushing candidates in the direction of the status quo. And right now the status quo is devastating for Oklahoma. You've got 18,000 cases. Criminal cases that have been pushed from state to federal court. And that means that the federal system is totally overwhelmed and they're unable to prosecute a huge number of cases in practicality that means that rapists and murderers are actually going unpunished and

"Was well do we chase those people not knowing what they're going to say to the courts for years, or do we go forward with a powerful, thundering case that we have? And also knowing that Mr McConnell was already telling us that he believed the challenge was a jurisdictional one. So we could have called God herself and the Republicans were going to be willing to convict so we're proud of the case to put forward being won't point. For saying God herself. But here's the other thing. And also knowing that Mitch McConnell was already telling us that. Yeah. Mitch McConnell was saying that before you ever decided to go down this road, you already knew what the end was gonna be. This was all for optics. And a waste of everyone's time. You're trying to look Trump look worse, The whole Republican party look worse. I squeezed the last bit of outrage you possibly could out of orange man. Yes. And it's not a surprise to anybody. So is it going to move on from here? David? Do you suppose? No, They're well, they're talking about, like a censure vote or something. I just think godly man. I mean, yes. Find out What balls were dropped. You know, leading up to that event, including You know what the president knew. Fine. What the D C mayor did I think sure why not? Let's look at that. But as far as show trials are concerned, this is stupid. Move on. Donald Trump's not the president anymore. You do really wonder. And I think we all have our mind's made up. A lot of these people really have the American public in mind when they do what they do, or is it just for political gain or for themselves? And I say that because part of me is wondering As long as legacy media pays attention to this story. There's a lot of other stories that you can ignore that make that party look bad. You heard biting talking about, you know, maybe it's time we start looking at common sense Gun laws. Yeah. That doesn't get much pub because we all know what is common sense from Maine, right? People on the right have come to know that that means a gun, Graham So we'll see where all of that goes. Meanwhile, you're saying we've got another song that we have to endure. What is this? I don't know why a bunch of these particularly women, but I don't want to just single out one gender here, but a lot of liberals just really love to do this kind of humiliating stuff as if this makes them Cool or funny or hip, and I just feel very embarrassed for them. They're making songs for Kamila Harris for Joe Biden and now Some lady decided to do a show tune for the White House Press secretary Jen Psaki owned This song is based on what Saki says a lot from the podium, which is all circle back, which is, of course.

Native youth talk about struggles of mental health issues during COVID-19

"This is national native news I'm Antonia Gonzalez native. Youth are warning US lawmakers in the midst of the COVID, nineteen pandemic Indian country is struggling to combat mental health issues, which can lead to suicide correspondent. Matt Laszlo has a story from Washington suicide rates in substance. Abuse problems in Indian country are always alarmingly high, but officials fear big spikes during the pandemic. That's in part because these summer months are usually marked by important native social events like powwows or canoeing few friends just to name a few. But most social gatherings are now canceled. The TASHA Gonzalez of California's Bishop Pie tribe is with the unity mission. Feels like. Has Been. Under all this in many younger travel members are confused especially, because many tribal communities haven't seen any coronavirus cases yet, Margot Vonda as a youth leader with twenty, five, hundred, twenty five. So it's been really tough time for them to grass that sort of new reality of staying home to keep safe from a threat that they can't see. Cutty Miller's CO president of the National Unity, council, he's a member of Washington State Swish Indian travel community, which he describes as a small tribe in a small town or their stigma, already surrounding people seeking mental health services. Part of it I think would just be like education. Everybody advocating that you don't have to go. You don't have a problem to go to the counselor. That's Miller and the others are asking Congress to increase mental health funding in the next corona virus stimulus package. For National Native News on that Laszlo in Washington the Executive Director of the National Council of Urban. Indian health says urban Indian centers have been hit hard and have many unmet needs to address Cova Nineteen Francis Curvier recently told the U. S. Commission. On Civil Rights, the federal government is failing in its obligations to native people living in urban areas despite the government's failures are facilities have done everything they can to keep their doors open for the patients who rely on them with or without the pandemic. She says urban Indian organisations were recognized by Congress in the nineteen seventies to assist with healthcare needs of native people living off reservations and native people who lack insurance often rely on. Others crea says many centers have not been able to keep up with the pandemic loading tests, equipment and other resources and funding, and does calling on the federal government to uphold its obligations. Leaders of the Cherokee chickasaw choctaw nation say more dialogue as needed on potential impacts of the mcgurk case, the US Supreme Court recently ruled. Congress never disestablished the Muskogee creek reservation, affirming reservation boundaries, which has led to tribal state and federal jurisdiction questions in a joint statement Monday. The tribes committed to more discussions with stakeholders and the public. The leader say the path forward requires collaboration. Collaboration with the Cherokee chickasaw choctaw seminal and Muskogee Creek nations. The statement follows proposal from Oklahoma's attorney general last week involving jurisdiction in a video message to tribal citizens, Cherokee, nation, principal chief, Chuck Hoskin Junior, said he spent the day listening to citizens and leaders, none of the leaders of the five tribes support eroding sovereignty or turning back the recognition of our reservations achieved through mcgirt. This isn't a stork ruling for Indian. Country and we would never ever undermine this monumental decision. On those points, we all agree leaders at the seminal Muskogee Creek. Nations were quick to disapprove of the state's proposal Friday and called for meaningful government government discussions. I'm Antonio

Iran attacks Iraqi bases housing US troops in retaliation for Soleimani's death

"Breaking news out of Iraq where we have confirmation that Iran has launched missiles missile strikes to Iraqi basis at least two Iraqi basis that also house. US forces we have no confirmation yet of the assessment of damage or casualties around the state media is now saying that Eh. They launched these two rounds of missile strikes. And this is I think important and really actually crucial we think about this moment around saying there's no there's no retaliation for America For the latest attacks. Then they will stop attacking but if America tax than their response will be crushing and widespread. It seems to me that this is a calculation nation here by the Iranian regime. At least and getting to some point that does not further. Climb up the escalatory ladder that we have now been on for quite some time and is threatening to plunged the entire region into valuable war joining me now former Republican congressman from Oklahoma Mickey Edwards. Former chair of the House Republican Policy Committee and former Democratic Congressman from Maryland. Donna Edwards also with me Sam Cedar host the majority were podcast and MSNBC Contributor Angelina Maxwell host of signal boost on Sirius Xm and an MSNBC political analyst. Donna let me start with you the the way that we talk about. This tends to resolve revolve around the president. What decision when will he make? and WHO's influencing but America's democratic nation with the constitution that gives the power to declare war the the Congress United States represents this democratic nation. All of its citizens citizens should not be in the hands of one man particularly one man with the faculties that the current president has it seems to me extremely important that across Democrat and Republican particularly Democratic Party Democrat. Cows come out strongly to say no war with Iran. This is madness and do whatever they can to halt escalation is that a possibility ability as UCLA. I do think that there will be in there. Already have been tonight really strong voices coming from speaker. Pelosi herself that we do not want a war with Iran and very sadly this is so reminiscent of where we've been before and I think it's also important for the American American people to step up and declare that there should be no war with Iran and we are at a place where you know. There's a possibility that there could be some some de escalation but it requires seen voices and cool heads to preside both in the White House which I don't expect but certainly coming out with a strong voice from Democrats in the in the Congress and I would expect others who do not want to continue. You need to put service men and women in harm's way and to jeopardize the safety of of the American People Mickey you know there's been an interesting Fisher Asia and the Republican and Conservative collision on this question We we've seen it sort of break out in the open. Sometimes rampaul was on our air earlier. Senator from Kentucky urging us not to enter into worth around. There are some conservative commentators. WHO HAVE THE president's ear who also said the same? This seems to me kind of testing ground of that. What do you you expect to see from Republicans on the hill? Well if we stay with what they have been saying for. Many many years is that we should be very cautious. Che's about going into war but they're the bigger issue here is what you were talking about Chris. So I would hope that the congress is able to back the president op and not have is go into a major war but it's also important that Congress start reasserting its primacy in the field of international affairs primacy in in terms of deciding when we go to war because it's not just this war but with this man in the in the White House or frankly any president the idea that the congress would step by now. You were the democratic voice. Chris you've been talking about and that the Congress would back off and let any president just on his own whim or any other reason take take the country into war is unacceptable and it's time Republicans and Democrats both came together on that one issue. It just crazy to me to view what's happening right now. Does this thing that just happening out there. In the world like we're we live in a democratic society precisely so that we can exert some control and and that's part of constitutional designed by design the founders constitutional design that there are some democratic control. I mean the idea that regardless of what we have in terms of casualties that we must must respond is absurd. We have agency people are going to call for de-escalation. They're either going to call for now tonight or they're going to do it. Eighteen years from now after after what we've been in Iraq and so the bottom line is every single. Democratic presidential candidate should tonight come out and say no war with Iran every single member of the Democratic Caucus in the house and the Senate should be backing the bills by Tim Kaine am by Sanders and Kana in the House and stopping funding and stopping topping the legal auspicies for this war. Somebody's skills worse than Iraq because at least with the Iraq war in two thousand three there was a reason they put forward a reason season and so an American citizen say while there's WMD's now it turned out that that was a lie right but there wasn't articulated reason that the administration collectively is trying to put forward to tell the American people. This is why we're doing this. I have no idea why this is happening Chris. The American people likely do not understand why we are on on the brink of war with Iran and I agree with Sam. All of the Democratic candidates have a chance to step forward in this moment and show that they can be competent. They can be strong and stand on principle there. There is no reason for this and this moment we need to stay take a step back a giant step back over this cannot be a partisan listen moment the Republicans in Congress have to do the same thing. They took the same oath of office. They swore to uphold the same constitution and adjust having Democrats oppose. What's happening what the war is about without any information here but but they can't do it alone? Republicans have to say in this this case this is American lives at risk and we are going to take back the constitutional power. The Congress has the it can't be just a democratic down the the politics of of this which in some senses seemed secretaries. We await at this moment to find out if there were casualties. Both among the Iraqi against Iraqi servicemembers emmers on these Iraqi bases or American service members but of course the politics matter because the politics are part of what will produce the outcomes that happen and the decision that gets made. I mean again. This is all part of Democratic Self Governance. It does seem to me that the war weariness is very real thing it shows up in the polling. It showed up on the campaign trail. There's very very little appetite. Wait for a war with Iran. If you pull that question and even the airstrike against Sulejmani which a to my mind. Reckless escalation along this trajectory was was essentially partisan split. Like do you trust. The Democrats will have the courage of their convictions about how they navigate this. Well I have to say I mean I do you. I mean I remember you know the lead up to the Iraq war in two thousand and whatever it was three four and you know people believe the evidence that was in front of them. I never believed it. But even in the face of thousands and thousands of people taking to the streets still legislators felt a need to like go right up and march toward war. We cannot afford that to have that outcome again. And I think it's incumbent on members of Congress but the American people have to speak up and we know that they're worried because they wanted to pull out of Iraq and Afghanistan in and out of the region all along now here. We are escalating again. And it's time to put a put the brakes on this coming. Both from the Congress in terms of them exercising their authorities Mickey had said but also coming from the American people saying we do not want another war in that region Gen Party. The ball is in the in the hands of the people themselves the power to declare war being Congress means that the people are supposed to make these decisions and this is what they have to show up a child meetings APP to contact their members of Congress and they have to be hurt and there should be a vote. I mean there's going to be a partner. Solution says there's going to be privileged privileged resolution and there should be there should be a vote in the United States. Senate absolutely not say I am struck by how many democratic politicians look I have very little expectations of Republicans at this point. I'm sorry about that but I am struck. By how few how how little maturation there seems to be when I look at the democratic accredit politicians who are coming out there and equivocating at this point because the American public has grown since two thousand two and to a certain extent I remember that time time vividly millions of people who are in those streets at that time and the fact is there was a lot of people who are shell shocked after nine eleven that Shell shock does not exist amongst the American American public anymore but you look at the eyes of a lot of these democratic politicians and they look like deers. If your headlights they need to lead to fight back against what is off. Obviously an attempt to draw this country into war by. Who's you know what who who's driving this bus? It's unclear but it but we cannot allow the the idea that the president of the United States can Willy Nilly create provocations. That dragged this country into this type of quagmire again. The American people have to understand why why we're entering into a military conflict. They don't know that tonight and that's a really big problem. And the communication here. I mean we just go back to say what the facts are on the ground in terms of the the latest loop. There was an attack outside Kirkuk a rocket attack there have been increasing rocketfire Adam at American forces from Shia militias in Iraq. Starting in October Tober Brett mcgurk said that hadn't happened. Eight years that part that itself was part of a escalatory cycle that started with the withdrawal from the Iran deal that kills an American American contractor back in December outside Kirkuk and killed an American contractor wounded several American service members there was a retaliatory strike by the US. It Killed Twenty five Shia militia militia members in Iraq and then that storm the embassy which was essentially disbursed with no casualties and then in response to that wildly provocative talkative s escalating act of taking out killing Qassem solely money. So that is that is the situation that has bras tonight to these reports of ground-to-ground missile. Fire from the Iranian government directed at Iraqi basis that whole both Amar Iraqi service members and American service members Donald. What do you think is happening right now? We have reports that Vice President Pence has briefed Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer Pelosi tweeted tweeted out. She's closely monitoring the situation falling bombings targeting. US troops in Iraq. We must ensure the safety of our service members including ending needless provocations

'We need to presume that we are in a state of war with Iran': Former envoy Brett McGurk

"Brett mcgurk served as senior director for Iraq and Afghanistan in the George W Bush White House who was also special presidential envoy to the global coalition to defeat. Asus I under President Obama and under president trump. Mr mcgurk left that role late two thousand eighteen after trump announced a plan to pull. US troops out of Syria. Mr mcgurk thank thank you so much for joining us tonight on on short notice and on a very serious evening. Thanks for having me. I know you've been following the news as we all have. I assume you've been able to talk with some of your former colleagues from from government and other experts in the region. Let me just ask your top line response to this news tonight. That the head of the KUDZU force Qassem Soleimani has been killed in a US military strike in back that way as an American who has served a lot of time in Iraq including including in two thousand seven two thousand eight period where we were really in a very hot war with a lot of these iranian-backed groups. I really feel that. It's it's a measure of justice done I feel that as an American someone who has been out there for a significant period of my life and I know I have colleagues who are killed by some of these groups also hearing from former colleagues in the region a lot of concern. Obviously about where this goes and I think we need to presume now as a country like it or not. We need to presume that we are in a state of war with Iran This has been a covert war shadow war for forty years But with this action. I think we need to presume to protect our people in the region to protect Dr Interests that were in a state of war with Iran and that is not something that the trump administration appears to have been prepared for. I mean they're they're national. Security Strategy is actually premised on the notion of getting out of the Middle East commitments and reprioritising to Asia to a great power or competition against China. So I think that is now pretty much over. We're now drawn back into the Middle East and we need to be very well prepared not over coming days and weeks. I'm Ron might take some time to respond. But over the coming months and even over the coming years to protect our people and our interests It's a very serious situation if we are as you say it's to presume that we are in a state of war with Iran not that it is threatening but we are there because of this action and What should Americans expect from a war with Iran? What should we expect in terms of risk to the United States into US US allies and U. S. forces in assets around the world? Well it means that we are now we have been trying now really for two ministrations restrictions to try to reprioritize out of the Middle East Because there's just such a resource kind of black hole for us and we tried to do that in various ways ways and it turns out now to ministrations. We're kind of sucked back in. I think it would be very difficult now to to really significantly move forces and resources out. I mean president trump. Even as he says he's bringing forces out of the Middle East he's actually sent fifteen thousand troops in the Middle East since May because of the increasing tensions against Iran on and because of the consequences that began on fold when he got out of the Iran. Deal another thing here if you want to take on a situation like this and set a very very maximalist objective which is basically to bring down the Iranian regime. That seems to be a policy that is a maximalist objective for which we very few allies You know in Iraq right now it's not just. US troops. We have. And I was a part of this effort to build a coalition. So we didn't do this on our own. We built a coalition of almost almost twenty military contributors interact with US France. UK Denmark Australia New Zealand. They're all interact with us And they are on these bases and facilities with us and has been a very successful endeavor. I think they're all AL also asking what comes next just on that point. A strategic risk is that we'll be asked to leave Iraq. I think the Iraqi government now is extremely weak There's a protest movement kind of a dual protest movement among Shia groups. Some of whom are backed by Iran. Some of these young patriotic liberal oriented Iraqis WANNA see significant reforms with. That's going to be very difficult. And there's a very good chance now. The Iraqis will ask us to leave Iraq. which would open up another vacuum which would be filled by extremist groups both on the Iranian backside and Isis so all the gains against Isis over last five years could also begin to unravel all that said? I want to emphasize that as an American I feel that this is a measure of justice but I'm also concerned that the second and third order consequences have not been adequately prepared for and I think it's incumbent upon Congress Congress and others to demand answers to those questions. Where does this go? How are we mitigating risks? And what our next moves

mean he he's all over the place he's also been a good friend for many many years and he joins us now Mike Breen good morning my cat why you're my friend hello the doctors listen and did that does that how how much does it bring back the memories for us huh the less rough the last couple of days mark my head's been spending with so many different members people calling texting sending clips reading all the comments and then listening to the show this morning and just journal stuff it's it's incredible memories Richard flooding back from a that's for sure what do you know my it will when you first heard the word that you know got the word that he had passed a medially what was going through your mind well if I had known I've been in contact with them in New we resist wasn't doing really well and I hadn't you know expected to do here at some point in the in the near future but when it when it finally comes down it just you know it it's it's kind of shocking it's it's one voice you never call whatever be silenced so it was it was interesting to again to just go back down memory lane and not think of all the different things and you know one of the things I thought of was just his evolution you know when he first started he was he was the DJ and shock jock although we always the phrase shock jock and then to go from that to become this this guy who who did political talk where the the top politicians in the top political commentators were fighting to beyond because it was important for them to be on and good for them to be on so his ability to to change and then the evolution while at the same time maintaining who he was I always thought was one of the more impressive things of his career yeah we we had our buddy Chris Russo on earlier and Chris brought out you know he he's basically brought out what you just said but he said don really had the two careers you know what one was the shock jock and one was this this other person in your you know again I mean MC in what was it the what car respondents dinner is in DC and we need he's dealing with presidents and why did the it's quite quite interesting for a guy who as quote unquote as you say it was a shock jock let me ask you this Mike Breen a what did he mean it you know I first knew you from doing the you know when I got back into New York in eighty eight I knew you from being on with I'm is before you would do it doing the Knicks what did he mean to you because to me he's he's affected a lot of our careers well from a professional standpoint our only want to think about where I'd be without being on that show are made the impact he had on my career is that you can you can't even measure it because it you know at the time it was the hottest show it was a show that you were able to show your personality able to show your sense of humor and it really got your name out there I mean are I don't even think and a like I said I'm going to think about where I've been a part was not a chill plus the from the it really taught you to think on your feet I mean if you couldn't deal with him you just get thrown to the wolves we're not just him but the whole group and it was hard at first but you learned you learned a lot of things about how to how to move on your feet with with things come and fly in action he also just taught me a lot about about the radio about broadcasting about what works about what doesn't work about making sure that you you had something prepared every day I mean that was for me the hardest thing he was not the easiest how to work with everybody who would work with multi you we could be they could be mean and nasty and demanding and if you know you could have for good days in a row where you had quality stuff and he loved it and if you didn't come back with the fifth day he was all over you so it was hard to remember I'll tell you one story might the first time ever that a sports cast warm done pretty was a sportscaster of this is back at the NBC days right creek used to miss every Friday and Monday because of football and they didn't have a felon and I was twenty five and I was working on the night time show that time Jack sector had a talk show and I was one of the producers so I asked the program director Dale Parsons a wonderful ma'am I sure can I fill in primus when cookies out because nobody ever filled in for cricket so he brought me back to his office one afternoon is about two o'clock in the in the afternoon and I miss was still drinking back then and he was three sheets to the wind when our back to his office and Parsons says Hey can this kid feeling for quickie tomorrow morning and he never even looked up he had his head down between his legs he said sure now get the F. out of my office so we left.

"There was there were things going on is on the business. Internally Turner Time Warner AOL that my brain was in a freaking blender you tell them about the when things kind of started going awry, it was the merger with Time Warner AOL is well there were two. There was the Time Warner merger which was which was a real. Challenge. And then when it became AOL somewhere just got s ugly. Okay. So what what changed for you? When merger happened. Again. And that's when the headaches began. Oh, yeah. But it's Time Warner's when it really began when it I'll never forget this. I went to a Christmas party. When time at Terry mcgurk sauce, Terry mcgurk at the time was the CEO term broadcasting. It was just a handful of executives in families that got invited to the Christmas party. And I went to Terry mcgurk house and everybody was everybody. Anybody was there and Joe Lavigne who is at the time the CEO time timewarner came in and everybody toasted, and it was a big deal. Injure Levin said, you know, one of the greatest things about this merger is that we're going to take the stability in the the magnitude of the Time Warner infrastructure, and we're going to infuse it with the entrepreneurial drive of the Turner organization and together, we're going to become unbeatable. And I believe that like you got to prove to be. I can't believe you before. I won't believe you, right? I don't immediately distrust people, I've mmediately trust them. And when he said that would damn this is going to be even better than it's been a mind, you it was. Good for me. I had Ted Turner's confidence. And I was so excited in somebody else about a week later to be careful because here's how these corporate. Mergers work doesn't happen overnight. But slowly, but surely the company that buys the other company own it. They control the everything changes. And within months. I started seeing guys that were pretty loose. Pretty cool pretty creative pretty entrepreneurial people at my level in way, above my level. All of a sudden, they're wearing blue suits white shirts. Red ties wingtip shoes walking and talking like their Time Warner counterparts while this is way. And then then the reality hit they change everything about the way we did business and that was the beginning of the end. And that's about the time. When I brought Kevin because my head was just house crushed. So how did he do for you? Kevin's, a friend. You know, he wasn't really out to be a Booker. He didn't he had a creative. He didn't have the the support people looked at him as being, you know, taking care of himself. And it was a bad situation for him. His intentions were there in just capabilities or Kevin's a bright talented guy. He could probably do it right now. But back then coming off of everything that we've come through on the end of you, all and all the crap that went along with it. It was horrible timing for him. What was your favorite angle and a history of business that you've watched is something that you thought was a greatest shit, ever consult condescending? Clearly, I love w clearly I would have to because because I would. But I loved watching stuff with you and McMahon and Tyson because I believed that there were moments in that angle that I wasn't sure is close as I am to the business part of it in my mind. At least I'm not even asking you to comment on it. But. But in mind mind, watching it, I believe twenty percent of it was real forty percent of it was real. But there was parts of it that were real in. It allowed me to drop my hands and enjoy it and get sucked into it in those are the two biggest moments in the business. And you know, what I when I'm in the business in active in it. That's what I strive for. Give me something. I don't care if it's at that. Let me that's hard to get that level. It's impossible almost anymore. But it doesn't matter. Just give me something that I can believe just give me something. I believe whatever it is can still be done. I don't think it can be done with the level that you guys did it or even that I did it within wwl because the.

"News, while the government shutdown drags on here in the US. The military is working toward pulling troops out of Syria. That after the president said ISIS was defeated in that country and after a terror attack in Syria just last week for which has claimed responsibility, Jack, a Pentagon correspondent for our monitoring joins us live right now from the Pentagon good morning, Jack. Good morning morning. How's the reaction been at the Pentagon since the president's decision to pull troops from Syria. So. There's there's been a mix of things. I mean first off. No one's clear on how quit the pull-out will be or under what conditions. The military always approach this under conditions based approach meaning that military wanted to make sure ISIS wouldn't be able to regenerate and Syria that there would be some semblance of governing authority, and that of course, you would have the Kurdish units that the US has back under controversy from Turkey be integrated with the Arab forces there in Syria on so that is still ongoing. It's not clear whether the military is going to be able to speed this up to the president's liking. So there's going to be this push and pull as we saw last year between President Trump who's instinct is to get all the troops out as quickly as possible and the military, which is pushing a slower and more deliberate approach. I mentioned the attack that ISIS has claimed responsibility. For are we any closer verifying that and is it being seen as a retaliation for the president's words that, you know, we've essentially defeated ISIS and Syria. Well. Yeah. I mean at all the consensus that we have right now is that that it was ISIS as far as retaliation for the president. It's it's not clear that it was necessarily retaliation. Isis has been tracking these patrol routes through mandates that contested the Syrian city that the Kurds and the Turks have had disputed for months and months and months. So this is something that that ISIS carefully watches, a it's something that, you know, could be emboldened for the group going forward, but it's primed within a broader tactical shift for ISIS as they've lost their dual cowl fit between Mozell in rock and rock in Syria. You're themselves more towards these hit and run type attack. So this is something that the US military is watching for this is something that analysts are watching for the troops will have to buckle down and face going forward. Jack, I know the Pentagon in acts policy, but when Brett mcgurk somebody who I know from a policy standpoint seem to be in line with the Pentagon vice versa when he stepped away saying he didn't agree with the president. Did that? Show that there's a schism between the Pentagon's philosophy Syrian what the president wants to do. Sure, I think there always has been mardi that the president again has been somebody who's who's coming into office on the promise of getting troops home on strengthening America on making America. Great again, and the Pentagon is still entrenched in a lot of overseas conflicts, including some of the global war on terror conflicts that stem from the two thousand one September eleventh attacks, so it's it's going to be pushing poll again between the Pentagon that's trying to find a reasonable way to pull out of the Middle East. Get the focus back on great power conflict with China and Russia, and again, a president who wants to be able to say that ISIS was defeated and and move on. So again, that's that's going to be a tug of war going forward. Even as this pull-out accelerate Pentagon correspondent for Al monitor Jack. Thanks for the time this morning, Jack. Thank you so much sports. Six fifteen.

"We have a two part show for you today. I Ben and I talk with a member of parliament named David lamb -i about Brexit. It is an ongoing rolling disaster much like our own government shutdown. He tries to help us understand. How would they got themselves in this position to begin with what's happening with Theresa May's plan to manage Brexit in what will come next when things likely fail? Then Ben, and I talked through a lot of the world's news first. There's the announcement from President Trump that he's going to have a second summit with Kim Jong UN in February we discussed whether that's a good idea. What the downside risk is to letting the North Koreans drag this out in how these talks came to be. Then we talk about the fact that the Israelis are now striking Ronnie and targets. In Syria seems a little risky, but there's a lot of complexities here. That are worth walking through. We talk about Brett mcgurk, the former head of the global ISIS coalition. He would not add about ISIS and Syria and the state of play there. And then finally, we conclude with Afghanistan, there was a pretty serious Taliban attack on intelligence base in Wardak province that I think speaks to the country's ability to stand up on its own after we're gone, and you know, just the state of play with the Pete talk there. So it's a great show covered a lot of ground today. And here's the conversation. David lemme. On the line from the UK is David lamb me. He's a member of parliament in the United Kingdom, and a member of the labor party in a recurring guest. Best British friend of the pot on pasta as well. That's right. David. Thank you again for joining us. Thank you. It's great. Thank you. So David unite talked in the fall when the car was kind of careening towards the edge of the cliff and this outcome seemed somewhat preordained, but I do think it's worth just for some of our listeners. Let's go quickly all the way back to the beginning here. And I think it's worth it for you to explain one more time, both why the Brexit referendum happened. And also what that Brexit referendum mandated, right because that and -ticipant this question that will get to whether or not there could be another referendum. Right. So so what are the origins of that first referendum under David Cameron? The best way to understand the fact. We had the first referendum is to for an American audience, particularly as to think about the tea party. So we had a version of tea party. And that was you Kip who kinda biting away at the traditional conservative party in the UK, and they were biting away on issues primarily around immigration, and it was kind of like an independence movement, the the idea of the UK should be independent of the European Union. And somehow we would giving the European Union lots of money pooling sovereignty with all the twenty seven countries in the European Union, and that we should get that money back and that we should go back in time. If you like to kind of empi period where Britain ruled waves Britain to you know could. Sign trade deals with the rest of the world and ten back. If you like the EU, but the real issue was immigration, David commun- foolishly in order to assuage. This tendency on the right on his right? Flank promise them a referendum. He fumed referendum would be in the brain that it would be easy. The campaign was very pool and we lost a whole set of things with set during the campaign that never evident verbal that. We would have forty trade deals on day one that it would be easy to leave the European Union that they would be begging to create a deal because we're such an important country. It would be beneficial to them. And so we find ourselves now in twenty nine teen with a really poor deal. I've gotta say the deal that threes may have striked. Maybe probably I don't know the best that we could get in the. Circumstances. But it it's a very poor deal for the UK in so many ways it's not clear we'd be able to strike car. Independent trade deal. It causes tremendous problems on the Irish border. We would be a rule take from the EU with very little say about the rules that we receive federal many reasons it's a bit of a bit of a mess..

"Now, you have to explain what mcgurk in Islam mcgurk in his English degrees left. It right. All these words. You understand the meaning behind them yet cobbled together? They mean, nothing it's nonsense. It's mcgurk. And Rudy happens to be fluent in. So how do you take that David? What is he saying there Rudy was saying we had a joint defense agreements? And so therefore when we were sitting down we would sit down together and say, hey, what is the story? What is the truth? And that's it. He never told Michael going to lie. They just agreed upon what version of the truth. They were gonna tell. Thank you, David. And then they played by the way, and then that truth. Cohen told prosecutors. Yeah. Rudy believed. He's still kind of beliefs. Right. But he also knows the Coens a serial liar. So that makes it a wash. Yes. So what whatever happens in the future. You could say, you know, that's what I said, exactly. That might be an all star version of mcgurk in all it is. That's it. Okay. There's like there's like a ball mcgurk indefinitely. All the way up to the major league say that he is the Tom Brady of mcgurk. So we didn't tell them to live. But he's still might have had a conversation with Cohen before. He went to go testify is what Rudy is saying to that might look bad. It's not close to what BuzzFeed was reporting. But still not great. So but Rudy doesn't think it's all that bad? Okay. So it's possible that that happen. The President Trump. And it might be attorney client privilege if it happened where I can't acknowledge it. But I have no knowledge that he spoke to him. And so what is he not possible that Michael dot com? Sation? I'm just asking you for what what happened or what didn't have. It's not possible. The left the conversation thinking, well, this is what the boss wants me to sign the boss wants. Driving? This testimony was Michael Cohen. Okay, man. Yeah. Robbins, are you gonna mcgurk in on that clip to? Well. There's there's yes. Okay. Because over my head is spinning now I'm trying to figure out what Rudy is saying. I gotta tell you. I got lost in that one. And the thing is I've seen the interview some hearing it again, I've said time, and he is saying it's not possible. What's not possible? I guess that that Trump told him to lie. That that part's not possible hearts not possible. But Jake tapper is trying to ask the question. Is it possible that they have this conversation? And Michael Cohen takes from that conversation about the version of the truth. He saying, okay. This is what my boss wants me. Go say the other beauty. This is why he is the Tom Brady of mcgurk is that Rudy Giuliani's very good at saying. A lot of words very loudly while other people are trying to say other words, very loudly as well. So he just floods. It's almost like a technique. Yes. Like in this part. He's just rolling right over the top. Yes. And so what is he talked to is not possible. The Michael dot com. Conversation. I'm just asking you for what what happened or what didn't have. It's not possible. Let the conversation thinking. Well, this is what the boss wants me to say the boss wants me not possible driving. This testimony was Michael Cohen Michael Cohen decided to lie that was only on Michael Cohen. Got it. Jake tapper gets done just goes to the CNN commissary and just blows bubbles in his soup. Our I think he goes it has a cigarette hanging a glass of whisky like this is what I do for. I would have paid attention in college. But another good example of that was also what happened on meet the press with Rudy Giuliani. About being the MVP all star. Mcgurk champion. This is good. Okay. Because this was supposed to be a big bombshell Rudy Giuliani asked about this Trump Tower Moscow project, Michael Cohen, of course, lied to congress and said it ended around January of two thousand sixteen. Apparently it actually went further into twenty sixteen as enduring the campaign like towards the end of the campaign to Giuliani was asked. How long was the conversation about the Trump Tower Moscow? How long was that conversation going on Rudy probably up to could be up to as far as Tober November aransas cover until the election. So anytime during that period, they could've talked about it. So just to clarify talks of Trump Tower Moscow win as late as October November of two thousand sixteen even. In some form. Could be the president president presents recollection is I talked about it with him in two thousand fifteen twenty sixteen. But this is the president was concerned an active project to at least October November two thousand sixteen an active potential. I would say an actors proposal. But here's the thing. Okay. Do do. I feel like then that it's safe to say. Well, I feel like it kind of got lied to by the president in two thousand sixteen or said absolutely no business dealings with Russia. Am my right to feel that you can tell me out. The word proposal. Active proposal is and other people may have been working on Trump was busy running for president. Right. That's the but so people start freaking out over this. This becomes this. Big story. Like Rudy Giuliani is saying, yeah, this was an active proposal up until the month of the election in two thousand sixteen Rudy again in his ability to say, so many things in every interview. This is not even new news. He said pretty much the exact same thing last month talking to little George Stephanopoulos. Michael Cohen was pursuing the Trump Tower in Moscow into the summer of two thousand sixteen according to the answer that he gave. Would have covered all the way up to November of. November twenty sixteen sitting at conversations with about president. Hi this. President in this. Yeah, we were having some Michael Cohen was having some conversations up until November two thousand sixteen. So are you surprised the media didn't take issue with that at the time? Yes. Because that was right on the heels of the Michael Cohen interview, the big interview, and so nobody paid attention to that. When it was happening.

"Brett mcgurk, the former special presidential on voice in the fight against ISIS says the announcement to withdraw American troops in Syria has created a vacuum for opposition forces mcgurk who resigned in protest over. The president's decision says ISIS has not been defeated and getting troops out of a combat zone is one of the most difficult things to do in this case, I think the entire national security team had one view and a president and a conversation with president air, John just completely reversed the policy. You know, the president has said, I think he's right. You never you never. Telegraph a punch when you're in a military campaign. You also don't telegraphy train. I've probably traveled to Syria more than any other American civilian official. I know our people in Syria. My heart is broken. We're all our thoughts are with the families and love.

This campaign is serious since two thousand fifteen we have a two Americans killed in action. We built this campaign plan to answer for those who believe that we should not be over invested in these conflicts Americans are not fighting. We built a force of sixty thousand Syrians, do the fighting American taxpayers are not spending money on civilian stabilization. And reconstruction costs the coalition is doing that. So it was a sustainable campaign plan, and we had the pieces in place as we defeat the physical caliphate to begin very serious negotiation with some pretty hostile actors in Syria, including Russia, and we had worked with the Russians diplomatically, basically to draw lines on the map at the Euphrates river. And we said look you don't cross that river cross that river. We'll kill you all the minute. You say the minute you announced the world that you're leaving. Vacuum opens up and all the other powers in the region start making different calculations and we have to.

"Is that the leader of the free world the president's dates the commander in chief is incompetent, look that is not the only thing I'm saying the other things of the many things that I would be saying is that we have rule of law in the United States and it works. We have an independent judiciary in the United States and it works. You know, press two we have we have a free media in the United States, and it works less well than it used to. But it still works and of journalism is very significant. You know, we we have a lot. We have hundreds of thousands of people that are pretty patriotic. They're hard working and non very well. Paid that show up every day to be in the US government. You know, what when they see something? They don't like they slow roll it or. Or they leak you remember the deep state. I'm talking about the I would call the deep bureaucracy. You know, they're not getting paid. Now, they're going to get paid. They're just there presently for a load. But I mean, it's not like they're not going to get that money. And by the way, I don't think that's acceptable. But for for the purpose of accuracy. Let's not say they're not getting federal federal workers singer emails. Yes. To in Bremmer in Bremmer. You can do that. It's too EMS. Yes to well. Let's talk about one thing that the administration has been recently and assess it in terms of importance risk, by the way. Let's let's be clear that this is the first time in the history of the firm that the United States domestically has made the list. Right. So let's talk about this one thing that that the administration has done recently in in sif, you have view on it necessite in terms of risk importance. Whether it's a product of incompetence or whatnot in what's going to happen. And that is the president waking up one day in deciding reportedly after a conversation with someone you've mentioned the president of Turkey president Don that he was gonna with. Draw all our troops out of Syria. And he was going to do it in thirty days and caused kind of a conflagration within the government and people got very upset and other people who've been more sycophantic about the president got a little bit of backbone for a minute and a half and said, some things Lindsey Graham included, and then we had the one person who many folks thought was the adult in the room, and you hear that phrase a lot about people in this government, but the secretary of defense General Mattis resigns Brett mcgurk, this special envoy resigns and now and now, of course, was going to resign a month later, let's be a month and a half later just again for accuracy. So everyone's up in arms. You have the Defense Secretary resigning in writing this letter saying that he disagreed with berries, basic, fundamental principles. And how you go about defending the country and engaging alliances with our allies. And now, even though it looks like that decision was made after competition with Erta one must have been very happy or the ones now upset. Because now it looks like based on what John Bolton has said. Nationally adviser, right, right? We're not withdrawing our troops within thirty days. And we're imposing conditions on Turkey before we withdraw troops and Trump the back somewhat. Right. So what what what's the question? What would you really want me? I want to know what the hell is going on in terms of in terms of Donald Trump, deciding to do something that a lot of people magazine. I guess I guess it's it's a way of it occurred to me while you're making the point you were making that his own incompetence and the structure of institutions saves us from his bad decision making. So that at the end of the day, we don't have the worst result. And look a lot of people think we should be bringing our troops out of lots of places where we have forever worse yet. But nobody likes that happening on a whim without consultation, and without an assessment of the consequences and the risks and bring your allies along..

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.

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?.
