Former Green Beret Rep. Michael Waltz on the Ukraine Crisis

"Talk to us about the last 5 weeks because the Ukrainians, they stood up to the plate and their use of irregular tactics. With one anti tank missile on the back of every rifleman, talked us about the performance on both sides as well. One, the Ukrainians have been trained by green berets and that's what we specialize in around the world is embedding with militias, tribes, allied military, and making them better. I think you're seeing 8 years of that training payoff since 2014 when they were invaded the first time. And then secondly, thanks to president Trump who began sending in the lethal aid in the first place after Obama through literally through blankets and MREs at the process. Yes. That said, they should have had a lot more than they had. The other thing we had the commander of NATO and general milley admit during these hearings is Ukrainians would have been in a far better place if they had stingers before the invasion before. Not a week after the invasion. Right. And a sticking point that I pressed them on also is why aren't we training them? Why aren't we training battalions, companies, platoons, still. So we did that great training in the last 8 years, but we cut it off as soon as the invasion started. Why aren't we training them in Poland and Romania? In safe places on NATO terrace. That's right. Well, we can deploy with ease. That's right. Bring them over there and keep the training. So the NATO commander said, well, we're not doing that congressman as a matter of policy. So I went to the Secretary of Defense and said, why aren't we doing it? He said, oh yeah, we are, but we can't get any confirmation

"Right, let's cut to the chase earlier this week. Congressman waltz, there was a blessing. I mean, just an embarrassing, truly embarrassing, a hearing on Capitol Hill. We had Matt Gaetz on the show yesterday. Talk to us about the state of the military, the state of the budget. And how a former four star general who's now the Secretary of Defense, I can't imagine I can't remember if this has ever happened before in the history of the Congress. Questions, the patriotism of one of your colleagues in Congress during a testimony? It's shocking. That's what Lloyd Austin did to Matt. Yeah. No, absolutely. I was there. And it's amazing to see some of these appointees. Lose sight of the fact that they're not elected. The American people are our bosses. And they don't put their names on the ballot. We do. And in the House of Representatives, we do it every other year, because that's how the founding fathers intended. We're the people's house. And so that was completely out of line. And the thing that Matt was questioning is you're so focused and I'll tell you about my follow one question in a minute. You're so focused on this woke ism and diversity and equity training and all of that social engineering garbage that you missed the capabilities of the Afghan army as it collapsed. You missed the capability of the Ukrainians when you predicted that Kyiv would fall in 72 hours. For those who misspoke, you said 36 days. What Millie, the chairman of the joint chiefs, the most senior military officer in the world. Said to president Biden, is that Kyiv is going to fall in 36 hours. And there was no apologies. There's no mayor culpa. He tried to actually argue that no, no, no, we got it right. Well, he actually said that the intelligence community should be commended. Now, Seth, you know this, the intelligence community is very, very good. The best in the world at counting tanks planes and ships. Stuff saw maps and where it's moving. What they totally missed is what we call capabilities. That's morale training. Logistics, maintenance, intent, and not only did we miss it by a mile on the Ukrainians, we missed it by even ten miles on the Russians. And that's the part that's falling apart right now before the world's eyes. But Millie tried to pat the intelligence community on the back. And wow, wait a minute, but back to Matt's line of questioning. Yeah, what did you say off the map? After that, I went to secretary Austin and said, look, your first memo, and I've served in The Pentagon. The first memo coming from a new Secretary of Defense sends a very strong mess. Sets the stage. His first memo was focused on the rising tide of white supremacy within the United States military. And I have to tell you a military member, I immediately found it insulting. That's not the case. But it's worse than that because in his confirmation testimony and I played the cut a hundred times on the show when he did it. He used the word enemies to describe members of the U.S. armed forces. And they had a 60 day stand down order to hunt for the subversives who may be, oh, I didn't a pro life or question the results of the last election, but can you confirm for me they weren't hunting down BLM extremists or antifa, correct? In the armed forces. Not to my knowledge. The overwhelming tide of white supremacy that was taking over the military. We even had congressional hearings on it, which was just ridiculous. Here we are a year later, and the Defense Department quietly releases their own study, looking into this matter, that found out that a whopping 100 members of a 2.5 million member military, a hundred out of two and a half million, had participated in some form of extremism. So my question to the secretary was, I'll do the quick math for you, mister secretary. That's 99.996%. For you. Of the military's doing the right thing. Is that still your top priority? And? And he danced around the issue, right? He completely danced around it. So what did we miss over the last year? As we were having the pronoun training. That's right. That's absolutely right. And one more piece on that set because what we've also seen over the last year is an alarming drop in public confidence in the United States military. And I mean, that's the last bastion of what it used to be the most respected. Most respected in the 70s, 80s, now we're seeing it in the 40s, 50s. And I said, mister secretary, you need to take responsibility for spreading this narrative. When the facts don't support it and I'd ask you, now that you have some data that shows .004% to knock it off, let's.

Who Is Rep. Michael Waltz, the First Green Beret in Congress?

"Things first, for those who aren't familiar with your story, still got a shock to me when I say this, the first green beret in Congress. How did that happen? Well, because they're different from seals. I didn't say that. Did I say that? Well, you know, there's no ego with Bragg. There's been 5 seals. I'm the first green beret. I just tell them it takes 5 of them to equal one of us. Nice. Talk to those millions of listeners across the country. Talk about your bona fides. What you did with the brotherhood talk a little bit about your military career. Well, I've served for 25 years. I'm actually still going in the National Guard as a colonel, but my career has been as a special operator served across Africa, multiple tours in Afghanistan. But importantly, a lot of folks don't realize both the seals and green berets have reserve units. So my day job, my civilian job was actually in The Pentagon under rumsfeld and Gates and then eventually in the Bush White House as a counter terrorism adviser to the vice president and so I had this fascinating Seb which you can appreciate having to be one of the only idiots in Washington that had to go actually do the strategy that I had written. Literally my first book warrior diplomat was there I was in The White House situation room, mister president. This is what we need to do to win the war on terror. Then I would get mobilized. There's a green beret and actually I have to go do it. Implement the thing that you recommend the amazing thing would be coming back from those tours going back into a coat and tie and into The White House and saying, hey boss, respectfully, The Pentagon's full of it. It's not going as well as you're being briefed. Here's what's going wrong and to try to get us in the direction of also built a company from scratch up to about 400 employees so I can read a balance sheet, unlike many of my colleagues on Capitol Hill, managing our federal budget. We created jobs from scratch, we did a lot of it in the national security space going after bad guy money all over the world for treasury and other threat finance, both for the commercial and private sector and walked away from that to run for Ron DeSantis's congressional seat when he ran for governor

"Welcome to your friends to mark your first one on one with me your host Sebastian gorka former strategist to president Trump. And remember right now of the Defense Department's national security education board. What is gaslighting? Well, it comes from a movie, and it has to do with someone trying to convince you that you shouldn't trust your senses. Here's a perfect example from the man who sadly bears the title, commander in chief. It sounded like he told U.S. troops they were going to Ukraine. It sounded like he said it was possible the U.S. would use a chemical weapon and it sounded like you were calling for regime change in Russia and we know none of the three occur. And you're going to see when you're there. How many of you have been there? You're going to see, you're going to see women, young people, stand on a stand in the middle of damn tank. Just saying, I'm not leaving. I'm holding my ground. If chemical weapons were used in Ukraine, would that trigger a military response from NATO? It would trigger a response in kind. For God's sake, this man can not remain power. You didn't hear him say that. He didn't say those things despite the fact we have the footage. Let's talk about all of that and so much more with somebody I've known before he was the first green beret in Congress. In fact, I campaigned for the man. I considered him a patriot and a friend, congressman Mike waltz, Florida's 6th congressional district. Welcome in studio to one on one. There you go to be with you, sir. So much to discuss, you're now an established author will discuss that in a moment, but first we have to talk about geopolitics. We have to talk about what the man in The White House is doing. He said, I didn't say remove Putin, I didn't say to the 82nd airborne, you're gonna be in Ukraine. And I didn't say we should use chemical weapons against Putin. Well, we just showed the video. Give us your response to the last 5 weeks of geopolitics, please. Let me just talk to our commander in chief right there. And I struggle a little bit, sometimes with those words to come out of my mouth. But look, deterrence depends on two things. Credible military options, right? The Russians, the Chinese, the United States have to believe that the other side is capable of mutually assured destruction, but the key component there is the political will to use it. And when you have the commander in chief, the United States of America leader of the free world on the international stage, we've seen that in our history in a great way, Reagan tear down this wall and other great leaders in this country's history, but when you see on the international stage in a moment of crisis, the president flip flopping around, sending mixed signals, confusing our own troops. And importantly, I think handing Putin additional propaganda victories where he can go back to his people. I told you so. And actually using that to solidify his power and then to see staffers trying to clean up what the president saying and then him walking back the walk back and just then once again, we saw this in the wake of Afghanistan standing for the world and lying. About what he said or about what he intended, look, I should say, so we should want him to be successful. But this is to a large extent why we are where we are. We're only 7 months from Afghanistan. And now we're in this global crisis, and I just walked out of a series of briefings on Taiwan, I don't know how we make it through another three years with the classified briefings. And they concerned you. Incredibly concerning. It's not a matter of if, it's just a debate on when. And I have to tell you, I mean, admiral Davidson, the former commander of our strategic forces, has said he believes it to be within the next 5 years when the Chinese believe they have the capability to do so. To take Taiwan. 2027 is when the window opens. So The Pentagon budgets and 5 year increments, that means what we're buying now. And the capabilities we have now are what we have. And that should disturb everybody. Just very quickly, why does Taiwan matter? And why does the lessons from Ukraine matter to Afghanistan? These are all connected. They're all connected and Iran. We could spend hours together, Seb, united, know that. But half the world's GDP and global trade not to mention 90% of the minerals that make our country go a 90% of advanced computer chips are all on that island. And that will instantly turn them into a global power and us into a regional. Just one word, semiconductors. If you just say semiconductors and we lose Taiwan that shuts down industry. That's right. We've been briefed that it's the equivalent of losing the entire West Coast economically. So not that I would mind losing them politically, but economically. You're going to type that up. We need another transcript..

How Can We Fix the Defense Budget?

"Last night you were doing the Nixon seminar, I played part of that, but I was at a dinner of naval last night trying to talk about where the navy budget. I talked to your colleague Gallagher about this last hour. The defense budget is a mess. It's not keeping up with inflation and we don't have a prioritization. Is there any way to this is an absolute mess? What is house going to do? And what is appropriation is going to do to get the prioritization right, congressman? Well, I think you'll see something along the lines of what we did last Congress even though the Democrats are in charge. I'm proud of House Republicans and negotiating a $40 billion plus up. To the budget. So increasing the top line and giving every one of the combatant commanders, what was sitting on the run funded list, which basically their wish list that didn't make the budget into the budget.

"Com. Now, Frank luntz's rule for anyone selling a book is you have to say the title of the book, dawn of the brave, 7 times. And I've said Donna the brave twice, but I think with this one, it's not enough to say Donna and the brave, you have to say brave books dot com great books dot com and how often do they get a book congressman? You're absolutely right, because everybody's so conditioned to go to Amazon at this point. And I'm proud of brave books for not putting it on Amazon. And going independently, they'll get a book every month. Sign up for the subscription kid gets a new book, new theme, new story every month, and again, I think it's just a fantastic program. Are you going to follow up because I love these characters? So I just hope there's another one. He's going to want my 7 year old. I call him the artful Dodger, grandson. He's going to want a second one. He's going to want to find out what happens with these people. Are you doing a number of follow-up? I don't know yet. We're trying to get this one out. And really get folks to sign up for the subscription. So I know we're talking to a Cantor freedom, possibly about doing one. We're talking to my sister in law, doctor Jeanette national, who's a Fox News medical contributor. I think they're going to have a real great team of folks with different themes and different conservative values getting each one of these books out. You know, congressman, it's the market abhors a vacuum and the woke movement as destroyed children's literature to a significant degree. And dawn of the brave and brave books are filling a niche. So I think it's going to do very, very well. Brave books dot com. I'm going to come back to it at the end. Now I want to talk to you about your 5 minutes with general milley and secretary Austin yesterday. I pointed on the first hour, I believe they admitted to you and I think it's important to note that had we armed the Ukrainians earlier, the Russians would have been defeated earlier and may have been deterred. Is that what your takeaway was? It was very mixed. We also had the commander of NATO a few days ago. And he said, general Walters said that if the Ukrainians had to have stingers before the invasion, if the sanctions have been placed for the invasion that the Ukrainians certainly would have been in a much better position. There's debate whether Putin could have ever been deterred minus U.S. boots on the ground, which I don't support. But this administration continues to let fear of Putin fear of escalation drive their policy. And that's what prevented them from getting the weapons there in the first place that they should have had. And the thing I pressed yesterday was that we're still not providing the training that the Ukrainians need post invasion to most effectively utilize these weapons systems. Well, that was confusing to me because the secretary and the general had a mixed message. The secretary was eager to tell you that we're not training Ukrainians in Ukraine. I think he also said we're not training Ukrainians in Poland, but I think the general said we're training Ukrainians elsewhere. Am I right? Well, what the general was going to is we've had long-standing exchange programs. For example, at the war college or the command and general staff school and I said, general, that's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about these new systems that are coming into place finally belatedly, like the puma UAVs, like the tippy two counter battery radar. You can't just hand that off to a Ukrainian truck driver and tell them take it in Ukraine with an instruction manual and they'll figure it out. They need the training and if it's not being conducted in Poland and where is it? And the NATO commander last week said we're not doing it anywhere as a policy matter. So I asked the Secretary of Defense and you're right, we got mixed messages. So I'm.

"Welcome back, I'm Hugh Hewitt, and I'm holding in my hand, dawn of the brave, a brand new children's book by my next guest, congressman Michael waltz, dawn of the brave, comes from brave books dot com. I've tweeted it out. Good morning, congressman. What brought you, I've read your first book, warrior diplomat, which is an account of your time in Afghanistan. This is, it's kind of related, but this is very different. Why dawn of the brave? Yeah, hi, Hugh. Thank you so much. So we're all ringing our hands and complaining about what is being taught to our children in schools that COVID exposed, well, this is an attempt to working with brave books to take our children's education back. It's a subscription. Your child will receive a new book every month, focused on traditional values on faith on family and in the case of my book on service to country. And I'm really thrilled to be a part of it. We have to take our kids education back and the proceeds from every subscription $15 of which goes to Samaritan's purse. That's doing so much good work in Ukraine. And I read this Amazon.com. You have to go to brave books dot com. I told people that on Twitter, you can not go to Amazon. You have to go to brave books dot com. My copy is going to my 7 year old grandson, 'cause he is going to love this. Pirates and animals and Bongo. And leopards and all the other stuff. Who helped you illustrate this? Because I know you were a man of many talents as a green beret, but I don't think they have art school down there at the North Carolina home of the green berets, do they? That is not one of them. I don't know if the seals learn how to do illustrations, but the green berets do not. As part of our training, for a book has a great team, again, you're speaking of seals, Dan Crenshaw has done one of their books, day in a lashes done, one of their books, we really have to get back engaged in what's being taught to our children and particularly in the wake of what we've seen in Virginia. Now this ongoing battle with Disney, this is really, I think, a fight for our future. And brave book has stepped up to the test. Well, I think it's wonderfully illustrated. And I love the theme and I love pirates and I love leopards and I love elephants and rhinos and hippopotamuses and lions. Fighting the good fight against pirates. Why are the pirates always wolves? You know, I kind of like wolves. And they're always wolves, congressmen. I think in this case, they might be rats, but maybe they look like wolves. Either way, you're the bad guys. They are the best. The theme, the theme of this book is all of the characters coming together, working as a team, serving a cause bigger than themselves, defending freedom island from the bad guys, utilizing their strengths and weaknesses. And then in many cases, learning the value of self sacrifice. Those are all attributes I want future generations to learn and they're not learning in today's school systems. If anybody is watching on the sale news channel, if that's a rat, it's the biggest rat I've ever seen. That's a wolf. It might be a coyote, but I am holding it up and brave books dot com..

"Made a little bit of sense. And it does, but it explained to me this. We had a caller call in as well. And talked about the fact that the price of cattle being moved to market has gone up so dramatically that beef prices are going to be impacted. I know that we've got a lot of money in our pockets, but if everything is more expensive collectively, the United States can't buy as much, can they? Well, if wages go up, they can. And so that's the thing about inflation is that everything ends up costing more. And what happens is it doesn't hit every industry every supply chain every good or service equally. So what you want to do in an inflationary environment is get in front of it, right? So if you have goals, if you have, if you own oil, if you own commodities, if you own real estate, those are if you own cattle, you win in an inflationary environment. If you don't own those assets, those real assets, then you lose. And a lot of times also, it hits the stock market first. So we've already seen that. So if you own stocks, the surge of money helped that. So yes, it will hurt the people that are on the wrong side. And here's the problem is you never know what gets affected most or first, you never know it always does it differently. We can kind of guess about what might get hit, but we'll never know. Until it's all over, then you look back and you go, oh, that's what happened first. That's what happened second. But we're in the middle of that right now. So I got a last question, Brian. Because I came jeopardy. He's going to take over for Nancy Pelosi as speaker in all likelihood if the Democrats pull off a miracle recovery, which I don't think they will. And minority leader if they lose. He just gave a press conference yesterday and he blamed the price of gas on Putin and get this oil company executives. What do you blame the price of gas on? Yeah, too much money. The Federal Reserve and COVID COVID spending. I mean, Hugh you and I were in Atlanta and not long ago, well, a year ago. A year ago. And I told everybody in the audience get ready, inflation is coming. And here it is. It was easy to see. They printed too much money. They're going to try to stop it. And so they're going to lift interest rates. Way too late. They have to go way further than I think they're willing to go. And they think they can pull out just the perfect amount of money and it's called the soft landing. They can do it just perfectly. But the fed never done that. And so I call it the Wiley. It's the wily E coyote landing, where you see the little puff of dirt at the bottom of the economy.

"Half point interest rate rises in the next races in the next year. I'm joined by Brian westbury of first trust portfolio where he was chief economist. Follow him on Twitter at westbury Bryan, good morning. What do you make of what people seem to think the feds about to do? Well, first of all, think about where interest rates should be if you think about this with inflation at 7% if you go back in history, interest rates should be about 1% above that. So we are with the with the inflation rates we are looking at today. We should have 7%, 8%, interest rates. And right now the fed is talking about pushing interest rates up to 2% and so if they think that's all it's going to take, they are misguided. Yeah, there's a prediction that the recession is coming in 2023 by Deutsche Bank today. I don't think it's going to take that long because people are not going to be able to afford this. I just had a painter call in. They're adding a 4% surcharge to everything he buys from the world's largest paint distributor. 4% on every single item and they call it a supply chain surcharge. That's a recessionary impact. Is it Brian? Well, you know, the one thing about printing a lot of money is sort of it's like putting a massive air conditioner on your house. So right now it takes an hour for your house to cool down 2°. But if you put a massive air conditioner on there, you can cool it down 2° and just a couple of minutes. And so what happens when you print a ton of money, it's like it gives you more room if you get like analogy here. You can end up paying more for something and still have money left over. And so that's the problem with inflation is yes, you have to pay more for things, but everything goes up. People's salaries go up, wages go up and they may not go up as quite as fast. If you own your own business, you can raise the prices for things you sell. So the thing about inflation is it doesn't immediately cause a recession just because prices go up, it literally increases the size of the prices for everything. I hope that.

"The next 5 years. So now congressman I heard two points in the United States. I heard a point of view that the cruisers are not needed, and I heard a point of view that we can't do without them. So I don't know. I'm a civilian. I don't know. Someone's got to tell me or get together and come to a conclusion. The second thing I heard, the most dangerous thing I heard is, maybe the Russians are so bad at what they're trying to do, except when it comes to missiles that we can extrapolate that People's Liberation Army navy is also that bad. I think that's a terrible logical step because that would mean we were also it just means the Russians are bad, but the Russians are very good at one thing. Missiles. It's the one thing they're good at. Equal to them. No, secretary work told me yesterday. We don't have as many in production, but we have the same technology. Do you agree with that? Yeah, but our stockpiles are getting absolutely depleted right now. And what we learned in via NATO in the Libya campaign in 2011 was that our stockpiles quickly evaporated. We went Winchester and we have no ability to replenish quickly. So one thing we need to do is figure out a better way to buy munitions because we're going to experience the same problem in a conflict with China over Taiwan. Let me address both of those hue. I think it would be a profound strategic error to assume that somehow the Chinese are deterred because of the friction, Putin is experiencing in Ukraine or that they are going to have a similar level of incompetence that we've seen from certain Russian ground forces. There's no evidence for either of those claims and there are some people in The Pentagon right now that are drinking that Kool-Aid and it is very, very dangerous. On the cruisers hue, okay, some of these cruisers are old and perhaps can not and should not be repaired. One of them, we just spent $200 million repairing in the last two years, so the navy, which is telling us that it really needs to save money and be efficient is lighting $200 million on fire hue. Furthermore, why can't we get creative with these cruisers? The oldest cruisers could receive modest upgrades to rely on third party ages targeting to provide air defense or surface strike capabilities while remaining in port, others could contribute as missile barges. There's ways to use these platforms creatively as we make this 5 year transition, but the navy has shown no creative thinking in the budget that it proposes. Last question, can't we just sell some of them to Taiwan with the missiles that go in the tubes? Well, that requires that you've hit on the biggest question, which is I think one of the lessons of Ukraine is that you need allies and partners on the ground that are capable and willing to fight for themselves. And one thing we absolutely need to do yesterday is to, in a friendly fashion, lean on our friends in Taiwan to change the way they buy weapons, change the way they organize for defense to invest in asymmetric capabilities like missiles, smart minds, reform their whole reserve system and increase the U.S. personnel that we send on a routine basis to Taiwan, clarify our commitment to the island. And I do think there are opportunity to get opportunities to get creative with all these platforms. They were having a debate about tanks you put a bunch of tanks around the port and near Taipei, right? They can target the amphibious force as it's landing, right? There's all sorts of things we can do if we attack it with a sense of urgency. That's a quarter baked idea, okay? Okay, well, I like quarter baked ideas. It's sort of like the quarterback bucks. And I hope they avoid the Cavs to round three. Congressman Mike Gallagher, good to talk to you, the quarterback bucks are in big trouble as they try to repeat, but it's always good to have Mike Gallagher..

"michael waltz" Discussed on The Hugh Hewitt Show: Highly Concentrated

"Egregious. I mean, we're going down. I went to a dinner last night, congressman Gallagher enabled us dinner and I'm the dumb guy in the room because every room has to have the guy doesn't know anything. So I just listened in somewhat stunned fashion to people go through the deficiencies of the navy's budget. And the question at the heart of it is, what is the purpose of the navy? And what do we need number one? Now everyone agrees we need the Columbia class. I had bob work on yesterday. Former deaf sex defense. And he said, Columbia class number one then Columbia class then Columbia class. But after that, there is just no agreement on what to buy. And if we don't know what we want to buy, we don't know what's going to cost. Do you guys have any clarity on what we need to buy? No, you know, when I came in to Congress in 2017, the navy, the Congress had just told the navy to study what the future fleet needs to look like. We did three outside studies, and then we all agreed on a 355 ship navy. This is where we were going. Well, now we're going backwards. And there is no coherent plan from the navy in terms of what they want. The future fleet to look like. Yes, there's general agreement on the sub aspect of this, both the Columbia class and the continued need to build Virginia class. We're making progress there because we've sent a predictable signal to the defense industrial base and the submarine building industrial base about where we want to go. There is no such agreement and no such plan when it comes to the surface navy. And it gets to the first question you asked you. What do we want the navy to do? In my opinion, we want the navy to be in the business of deterring wars. Deterring aggressors. And that means you need forward presence. And where I disagree respectfully with deputy secretary work is that his vision he's laid out is for a navy that would merely prepare for war in the continental United States and be ready to search forward after deterrence fails. I don't think that works. One, you'd have to fight to get to the theater where the navy would need to be to have any effect. And two, if the adversary, IE China pursues what is called a fate of police strategy where they basically move very rapidly to seize their objective, surging the navy three weeks later to the Pacific is not going to make a darn bit of difference. So our fundamental problem here is we don't have a navy leader who has laid out what the purpose of the navy is. And I would add since Robert O'Brien left The White House, we do not have a sea power advocate who is close to the president. What you learn if you study the records of the Reagan administration is that you need presidential leadership in order to empower a Secretary of Defense and a secretary of the navy to advocate for building the fleet and we just haven't had that hue. We are growing. I heard two good ideas last night. One was poor admiral gilday, the CNO has had four secretaries of the navy are acting secretary of the navy and his three years. And maybe it's time to move to a ten year term for a service secretary like the FBI director. You can always fire them, but the idea of continuity in order to push a budget might be useful. The second was a brac, which for the benefit of the bucks fans and the packers fans is a commission to it used to be used to close bases, but a brack for legacy platforms so we can finally kill the a ten, for example. What do you make of those two ideas, congressman? Well, maybe I would offer an amendment to the second proposal. What we might need is a brac for the joint staff and the office of the Secretary of Defense. But also came up completely out of control in terms of the number of general officers and flag officers that we have that at times are standing in the way of innovation that are standing in the way of a coherent plan for building the size of the fleet. As for how you originally described it, I mean, look at the uproar over what the commandant and the Marine Corps is trying to do. Now, I think reasonable people can disagree about how you organize the infantry battalion, but the commoner has a point when it comes to the democratization of AirPower and future war and the need to invest in things that we're seeing have a devastating effect in Ukraine right now. Things like loitering munitions, long-range fires and things like that. And oh, by the way, hue. If the navy pursues this plan of cutting the fleet from 298 ships 282 184 over the next 5 years, it means we are going to be weakest precisely at the moment when we need to be strongest, which is at the midpoint of this decade. She has set the goal of a modern capable PLA force by 2027 that is able to pursue unification of Taiwan by force if necessary. That is right at the moment when the secretary of the navy and the C and O would have us be at our low point. It makes absolutely no sense. You're betting, you're betting you, the fate of the free world on Xi Jinping's restraint in this decade. What the president himself and the Secretary of Defense himself have called the decisive decade. So the navy's plan to divest to invest makes no sense if we think this is the decisive decade and the likelihood of conflict over Taiwan is growing in.

Dod’s Budget Inflation Story Is More Complicated Than You Think

"Hey, I want to talk to you about the hearing yesterday. I played some congressman Walsh who's up next hour. I thought it was an interesting hearing. Got a little hot in the collar from general Austin defense secretary asked him, what did you learn from yesterday's hearing? Well, a few big things came out. The first is that chairman milley admitted that the 2% inflation assumption that they used in the budget was obviously incorrect, I believe, was the phrase he used or something like that. So it raises the question. If we know it's obviously incorrect, then why? Are they continuing to stand behind it? Why use it? And what this proves is a bigger point, which when you factor in inflation, the 780 ish, $773 billion number, is really a mirage.

That not only did you own the most famous newspaper titles in canada and in the uk but a slew of them in australia as well as such. I have to play this video.

There is no more rugged nationality at nights there. Sunday would be the last people. I would suspect of a turn like this. Where they're issuing warrants for the arrest of people with masks on that sort of so there must be some sort of antipathy solar disorder lives. 'cause from from you know being a bondi beach hanging ten for too long something like that chasing crocodile could this be another example of of of the the gargantuan gap between political elites and and the electric whether it's brexit in the uk whether it's the trump phenomenon that you chronicled in your your book about my former boss of whether it's this as you say it's hard to imagine maybe the mongolians. Perhaps i have not a lot of experience with mongolians. But it's hard to imagine. A more masculine robust bossed forthright individual nation than than the australians. And for them to just just roll over onto their backs. Is this another. Could this be an example. Just of how putrid modern politics has become and how disconnected from the people that meant to serve low black. I guess it could be surpassed. And i just can't imagine the australians being an example about them and we we're accustomed solo and Paying dame gail to organized labor in the small farmers and so you get in europe which is largely an exhaustive continent from from centuries of warfare. Terrible wars in the twentieth century as well as a as a atrocities beyond the imagination Not bad as more comprehensible more familiar but but the australians are always a robust people in every respect. And it's you know it's a splendid country that has never had a day of violence minutes been heroic participant in foreign wars. But it's not a disturbed society. I just don't understand what's going on. There haven't been there for couple of years so well we sell see. We played the audio of that truck driver yesterday from australia. Saying they're going to go on strike. They're gonna shut down australia to stop this madness and get rid of that government if anybody can shut out australia. It's the truck eases.

Is this going to play well in politics when they want to find out who was calling on their telephones from the other political party. Is this a wise move. Nancy ho cohorts. I would've thought no the the fbi effectively revealed. They didn't say officially they leak very authoritatively can stay as you would have seen just on the weekend just that There was absolutely no evidence. Opinion relationship whatsoever between those who led the trespass and lead in the relatively minor violence. That occurred at the capitol and anyone with the trump campaign. Nothing no connection zero. So the whole point of this assist as we knew all along pelosi trying to smear the former president and the democrats trying to continue eight months into to a very rocky term where everything has turned to dust in their hands. They're trying to continue with trump eight campaign. I especially after this horrible nightmare in kabul. I don't think the public is buying it. I think the tired about him in the former president is gone something. He was effectively cheated. That does offer some do not. But that's not the point. it's not there and they. They cannot substitute for exercising. Their responsibilities This six year. Long mudslinging extravaganza. They've been they've been conducting inch the former president and given given that sixty thousand people came out to see him on saturday night. This is not a very wise move is it. I mean the fact is they're all of them trying to pretend that trump is dead that he was like a meeting or the past physically but politically. You're gonna meet your past dimes. Gone back to business as usual with the romney mccain bush republicans it. It's it's a dream. it's not the case. he changed the party decisively. And no serious person. Who's going to run for the presidential nomination of the republicans until trump has been heard from and if he wants the nomination as things now stand he can have and if he has that the republican nominee will win on on the basis of this terribly incompetent administration. That would be then seeking reelection. Well nobody absolutely nobody can mobilize people like my former boss. Donald trump the scenes from saturday nights. Rally i if i may tell you I had this exchange with henry kissinger the other day. And he's he came family to this gets the united states in nineteen thirty eight. No president except roosevelt mobilized crowds like donald trump eisenhower and reagan to do a fair job that times. No one since. Roosevelt find out. Why in the book. Conrad black's a president.

"Michael Waltz of Florida. Good morning, Congressman. Good to have you Good to be on with you here. I always disclosed to people. My son works in your office. And then I can go to the news Yesterday You broke on Fox News. The idea that you would like the United States to boycott the Winter Olympics in 2022 in China? How's the reaction Been to that proposal? Why did you make it? Wanted to be clear. We're actually asking the IOC the International Olympic Committee to move the games out of China. Actually, Senator Rick Scott has been asking that for over a year Speaker Newt Gingrich mentioned it about a year ago. But since they have refused, the international Olympic community is not abiding by its own moral and ethical standards. We are calling for a boycott. I cannot see how after the Chinese Communist Party is at least the Corona virus on the world and covered it up. Arrested, journalists arrested doctors Op. You skated an investigation by the W. H O and now is actively committing genocide forced rate for sterilization, slave labor and concentration camps. Literally as we speak. How do we then have the American flag flying in Beijing? How do we bestow the honor of hosting the Olympics on such a brutal authoritarian dictatorship? And how do we give them? Give Z and his cronies in Beijing the platform of the Olympics to espouse their form of government. You you've covered this a lot. You know that she is actively working to replace the American dream with the China dream around the world and the Olympics. Just Bastos on him legitimacy. For his authoritarian regime. We need Tonto Biden administration needs to walk the walk when it comes to human rights, and when it comes to holding China accountable enough is enough. We need to pour athletes back unless the IOC moves the games to another country Now Congressman Waltz. I asked David Drucker in the first hour Byron York and Admiral Staff Reedys in the second hour about the waltz option. The boycott. Caption and all Three of them instantly went to 1980 They correctly remember you're too young, but I remember we were so disappointed. The athletes were so screwed. They all three went right immediately back to 1980. And different situation, Different world and our economies are differently. Structured right now, Have you heard a lot of that since you introduced the resolution that the waltz option will unfairly punish athletes trained all their life? Yeah, sure. You know, a lot of people go back to that. And that's you know, somewhat understandable, but a very different dynamic. I think one you don't have a didn't have unnecessarily an act of genocide going on. We are literally talking about millions of people in concentration camps, images that have leaked out of China of the weaker on their knees, blindfolded, being loaded into rail cars loaded into trains. On then being stripped of all of their personal belongings and their heads shaved as they enter these concentration camps for re education, to be followed by forced sterilization. And forced rape. Esso. I think America needs to wake up and I would encourage Admiral separate us who have a lot of respect for on others to understand the gravity of what's going on. Not to mention over two million people that are dead around the world for what Beijing has released and then covered up, So I think there's a there's a magnitude of difference here. On. I just can't see then rewarding them literally 11 months from now with an Olympic Games, and then separately, you let's talk about the financial benefits that the billions that will pour into Beijing. And all of the multinational companies NBC, Adidas Nike Apple that the sponsors that stand to make billions off the backs of the slave labor and offer the backs of this genocide. So you know enough talk. It's time to walk the walk. Social justice doesn't just apply to, you know U S borders. All of these companies talk about responsible social governance. Well, let's see them step up and let's see him make us tough stand when it comes to their bottom line. To be clear. Admiral Stavridis is not opposed to it necessarily, he said. Try and get an alliance to move. The Olympics is the preferred option. I said, Well, I've been trying to do it, but here's here's the follow up. You're right. The Democrats have have Talk to human rights line and secretary of state, Blinken said. The genocide is real, so they're kind of on the record. We have a minute left. What about the cancel culture that operates in the United States audit not to operate with it? Lisa's much force against the sponsors of the Olympics. Get them out of the business of Happy face China advertising when genocide is underway. Yeah, I would just add 180. That's a huge number. 180 international human rights organizations have also called for the games to be moved, and I want to be clear. That is absolutely the pervert option. I want our athletes and the world's athletes to be able to compete. But I just don't see how many of these athletes themselves many of them who have called for social justice can do so literally in a country where where genocide is active,.

"That so many of us have to experience due to Corona virus, representative Michael Waltz of Florida congressman will be joining us to discuss that coming up in 30 minutes right now, he wants to be your senator. Virginia and hey, deserves a fair hearing. And he deserves a debate with his opponent. He is retired army Lieutenant Colonel Daniel Gate and he joins us now, Colonel Gate. Thank you for joining us, sir. Well, hello, friends. It's great to be on with you again. So first of all, let's just cut to the chase here. What is the latest with regard to debate Has Mark Warner agreed to give you any debate. I know. Last time he agreed to a debate, the many backed out at the last minute. That's right. So my philosophy on debates on DH campaign events in general is that that a campaign is simply a job interview. And being a politician is simply a job. And if you're afraid to meet the voters face to face if you're afraid to meet your opponent face to face what you are is You know, shirking your responsibilities to show your stuff. And in this case, Mark Warner first backed out of a debate two weeks ago on the climate, and yesterday he backed out of a forum that he was supposed to participate in. With the Arlington Civic Forum. And the thing about that, is that a blue a blue area that's those are people who generally probably lean left. In other words, that's his home field, and he wanted to compete on his home field, and I think what he's hoping is that sheer mo mentum Will sweep into a third term, and I and I find that to be appalling and undemocratic. Yeah, I agree. And it's beyond that. I've got more to say about that, too. But I just want to be clear because his we check out this Arlington Town hall. He was invited. You were invited. You showed up and he says that he never committed to going so he didn't really back out. He just didn't show, I guess. Is that how you read this? Or do you have information that he actually at some point said he would go I thought that was the case. Maybe I'm maybe I'm mistaken about that. But it fits the pattern, and the pattern is that he doesn't do in person events. He's not out on the campaign trail, and he's hoping that sheer momentum sweeps in and I don't think the people like Look You know, you have a chance to elect a career servant rather than the same old, same old career politician that way have now? Yeah. What is he doing? If he's not going to a Candidatesforum to meet voters and tio faith you and to discuss the important issues of Virginia's? Is he just raising money and just hiding in his basement like Joe Biden? That's what that's what I'm not understanding. He's eight weeks away from Election Day of the very least he could do was free up some time to debate you. Yeah, I have no idea. And now we're hearing some rumblings that maybe he's going to try to move or change the terms of our future debates. And I just want the voters to know that I am not afraid to face him or any other politician at any point on any field on any subject. And this one of them be the hardest thing I've done. I've fought for our country in battle. I have machine gun both bouncing off my tank in front of my face, So there's not a thing they could do in Washington, D C to make me scared, and Andi. So I guess I'm not surprised that he doesn't want the baby well, and that's why I would like to sort of dwell on that from him because there was a lot of noise about President Trump and these remarks that he was alleged to have made about members of our military. Ah, and about how you know people in our military deserve respect. I agree. Members of our military deserve respect. At the very least, Colonel gay Don't you deserve the respect manned a man of your opponent's showing up in engaging.

"So so I do think is a member of your determined to come here and get things done rather than just get reelected forever. You can you can do someone who has spent my entire life defending this democracy. I do wanna leave you this to be a part of it now is truly incredible. And for all of the scholars that you, quote, or all brilliant people. I'm sure that the wheels are coming off the bus of America, and we've never been more divided. And God, where's the country going takes time and travel abroad is when you look back on how good we have it in this country. I think everybody could do well with a little bit of perspective and having fought in places like Yemen, and Afghantistan and Africa. This is by far the greatest country in the world, and we may get ugly. Sometimes maybe difficult Winston Churchill famously said American democracy is that were system of government in the world except all the others. Right. We'll be okay. So I said that was less question allied this push. I'm so impressed by both of you that I'm worried about burn out. What do you do for fun? I have a fifteen year old daughter. And now, I'm even more were right. And and I when I am not doing this. I am I am focused on her ears. You florida. She actually, unfortunately with her mother, and I separated I was up here with the Bush administration. So she is up here. I I do have to say to be able to escape Washington and go back to a place like Florida, we live just off the beach there. So anytime I can run on the beach like I did yesterday. And a great place when you do for fun. I've got two little boys at home a six year old a four year old, by the way. Are they hear our misery? Me when we're here and then home when I'm home. I so it so they travel with you as much as we can. So, you know, it's important to us to keep our family together. I talked a lot about that. During the campaign. My family is extremely or how old six four six four. And so they are I go home every night and rush home to them as quickly as I can. And you talk about great giving you perspective. I mean, you know, sitting with my little boys reading to them as they go to sleep at night. I think to myself this is what it's about. And you know, what this is what most American families have to think to myself what what are other dads moms in America doing right now. They're doing the same thing. They're putting their kids to bed thinking about their families to thinking about the future. And that's what we ought to be thinking about here in Washington.

"But in the meantime, you questioned her credentials, and you got smacked twice on the editor pages of the biggest circulation newspaper in the country. The Wall Street Journal now. I am I suppose you have friends, you know, how to handle the Saint Louis post dispatch. What does a Senator from Missouri who was about one of one hundred do when he gets smacked around by the Wall Street Journal his job? He does his job which is not to kowtow to the press, which is not to kowtow to the special interests, which is to ask the tough questions and get answers. And you know, what the result of my asking questions was Peter I got answers it took multiple tries. But I finally got answers. I got commitments from this particular nominee that she would abide by the constitution's text that she did not believe in this doctrine called substantive due process, which is judged make stuff up that she did not believe that much of the court's recent the supreme court's recent jurisprudence, and subset of processes proper. So that that was a big deal. It took it took a while to get it. But I did get it, and those are the sorts of tough questions with real answers that we have a job to do. I don't care who cry. Criticizes me I'm going to go on doing my job because that's what I was elected to do as he pointed out. I don't need this job. I'm not here for my own gratification. I'm here to serve the interests of the people of Missouri and the constitution other states. And I'm going to do that. No matter what congressman walls, you you have if any you have something like the opposite problem in that, they tone a beach, honestly, don't know, the Daytona Beach newspaper. They told a journal the Daytona, John. All right. So you so I'm sure you are they know you folks at the Daytona journal, but you have a fairly diffuse district daytonas Orlando we have Jackson. So how do how do you first of all I don't know about the on paper. But in general, the press is the press, and it's opposed to conservatives in general, okay? How do you communicate with your constituents? Well, one is get on the ground with them. I mean, we NAS your home every week. We knocked over in the campaign over a quarter million doors between. My team. And I we just we were getting outspent left right and center from Bloomberg zoro's, the democratic national party you name it, and we just went stood on porches and said this me, and this is what I stand for in the what I wanna do. So that's one way you just go around him. Secondly, is I also go national as as much as I can whether. Fox intruder before and speak to folks speak to folks that way, but you're pointing and being criticized by the press suit, I think the American people see past it. I mean, look at the election of President Trump. They really do. They're tired of being told what to think, and I'm going to sit there that the greatest thing I can do Peter. I think Josh as well is just fall back on our experience, which we bring a decent amount to the table and say, I number one, I reject the premise of the question, which I end up saying a lot because they're such tilted questions at come at you. And then number two say, that's really interesting. Here's my experience whether in combat or in business or out talking to people on the front porch, and that's the basis for my decision. Not whatever garbage. They're throwing this brings us to the president of the United States. We'll start with special case between you and the president. Sure, it's clear that the president all his instincts are to get out of Syria and Afghantistan now John Bolton and others may slow him down. The president will make a statement. And then they'll back and fill a little bit still. He wants out that's clear, and this is Mike Walt speaking not too terribly long ago at some point we need to drive towards some type of negotiated peace agreement in Afghanistan. I don't know that now is the time close quote. So his instinct is out and Mike waltz having served in Afghanistan. Knowing a lot about Iraq and Syria says not so fast, Mr President. Yeah..

"Right. The actual experience. That's right. That's right. And it's not so much the issues or veterans or military issues or foreign policy the that we bring right? So in I can tell you in combat and the foxhole and the plane and the ship. Nobody cares about race religion creed social economic background political party. It's not as the black helicopters in the middle of the night. When after al-qaeda going, are, you a democrat or Republican or are you Hispanic or nobody cares? You're about mission you're about country, you're about getting things done. So I think the more veterans that we get on both sides. Of the aisle. I would prefer they'd be Republican. But on both sides of the aisle, the better because we're we have that commonality of service. Secondly. I I gotta be honest with you. I agree with Josh in many ways, I think our did not put my life on the line from the earliest days for a country that's going to move towards socialism for a country that is going to move towards one-size-fits-all from Washington or greater government control. I fought for an America that I believed where the sky's the limit for anybody who plays by the rule in works hard to achieve their American dream, not to have the government take it from you. So I think the idea of what America is is is is under a lot of threat not only from the inside. But from the outside from the outside. We've face a metastasized as Lama extremism threat. That's growing we face. I don't like to call them near peer anymore. They are peer competitors. Many ways from space to missiles in China Chinese resurgent Russia, that's not moving in our interest overlaid with twenty two. Trillion and growing national debt. So how do we defend those liberties as we hash out what they mean? How do we defend them? And I think we can either yell at the television and post on Facebook, and I do that or we can get in the arena and be part of the solution. So I stepped up to get things done. So got it. I've got the ideals, and I believe you you're both serious. Now. Here's the question. You are now one of one hundred in the Gs office in Missouri. Ran it. You are now one of four hundred thirty five. Oh, yeah. And there's nobody giving orders. That's right. There is nobody in command. So let's go through a little bit of what it's actually like truly your first impressions of his chamber polarization. How bad is it about? What you expected worse. Dealing with democrat. It's very polarized. And I would say it's worse. We look Washington worse than you. Expect worse-than-expected them in Washington is every bit as dysfunctional as it looks from the outside. My pressure maybe worse. And in the Senate least part of the reason for that is half the Democrats senators running for president. I mean, the truth is Peter that the Democrats would just as soon we switch off the lights, everybody, go home, and we do no work for the next ten years that wanna work. They don't wanna get anything accomplished they're focused entirely on twenty twenty and beating Donald Trump. It's all politics all the time. You talk about getting prescription drug prices down. They don't wanna do you talk about securing the border. They don't wanna do it. They just want to go out impolitic, and it's a huge problem. And what about the house? Different with the other side in the majority. They are trying to get things done most of which disagree with. So we've rolled out Medicare for all which is very cleverly named because it's not Medicare at all Medicare government paid for healthcare. They're looking for government run healthcare, which would kick a hundred sixty million Americans off of their private insurance. So the Democrats are charging ahead with their agenda and many which, but but I do think I do want to make this point. I do think particularly with veterans on the other side, we can find common ground. So that air things. Yes. Friends, whether it is water issues and Florida, which is not only an economic issue. It's a it's it's just a way of life issue. I mean waters everything in Florida. Someone grew up on the beach. There's transportation and infrastructure needs and talking to people the highway reauthorization Bill is coming up in twenty twenty..

"Welcome to uncommon knowledge. I'm Peter Robinson today. First impressions from two especially remarkable freshman members of congress, a native of Lexington to town in rural Missouri. Josh Holly served from twenty seventeen to earlier this year as the attorney general of Missouri last year, he ran for the Senate as a Republican defeating the democratic incumbent Claire mccaskill by six points at thirty nine. Josh Holly is the youngest member of the Senate, a native of Boynton Beach, Florida Michael waltz received a commission in the United States army immediately after graduating from the Virginia Military institute he served in Afghanistan, then he served in the office of the secretary of defense. And then he served in the White House of President, George W Bush, and then he co-founded defense consulting firm. Medicines this past November, Mr Walter Republican was elected to the house from the sixth district, Florida. The district centers on Daytona Beach. Michael waltz is the first green beret ever elected to congress, Josh Holly and Mike waltz welcomes. Fellas. Why did you do it? Let's start with you Stanford University Yale Law School, then term as attorney general of Missouri. So here's the reality that you're living at this moment in an alternative universe. You're finishing your term as attorney general. And then you're going to go with big national firm in its Saint Louis or Kansas City office, and you're going to go through your forties and fifties raising kids in the best place in the world to raise kids the American midwest making a pile of loot and instead of living in that alternative universe. You're here in the United States, Senate senators aren't poor. But it's not what you might have done. Josh, I beg your pardon of what's the protocol. Here. We'd better establish. I've known you since you an undergraduate and my and my alright. So what are you doing? Well, first of all, thanks for having me, Peter. It's great to great to be with you agreed to see you. Remember our first meeting when I was I think eighteen right in your office at the Hoover Institution at Stanford. I came by to see you as an undergraduate I was a freshman that year age, you haven't changed. No, not a day. And fortunately, I have. But listen, I think that it is a critical critical time for our country. I mean, we are at a major generational turning point whole era. American politics is coming to an end are the post warrior is how I think about that runs. The late forties until just the last two years that era in American politics is over we're facing tremendous challenges as a country are middle classes in a state of collapse are middle class way of life is under serious threat. We've got the courts are hanging in the balance. We have a new threats arising around us in the world. I mean and a new generation I'm the youngest member of the Senate as you said and also one of the first members of new generation to be elected. So it is. Significant turning point and you're leading purpose driven life to quote, the bestselling books, and you're serious about this. I am I am ceiling reason doing Mike. Here's your here's your problem, that least as appears to my mind. United States army not just the United States. Army green beret, you guys are sending to get stuff done. And then you work in the secretary of defense, the Pentagon can be bureaucratic. But in the office of the secretary of defense, the ideas to get stuff done, and then the White House, the pinnacle the executive branch, and then you founded a company you have been in one doing job after another. And now here you are in a talking job. Why? As veterans a couple of things one we're at a record low in terms of veterans, and our congress and in the Senate in our nation's history, we've gone from a peak of eighty percent in the nineteen seventies to a low in our nation's history around fifteen percent right now.
