Could Mike Pompeo, Robert O'Brien, Make a Run for POTUS?

"Yeah, David drucker, I am going to moderate a debate of would be senators in ohioans on a night, the 6 Republicans who are running three nights at Senate to replace rob Portman, and I'm reading in Trump shattered or prepare for that debate. They might want to get a hold of a copy themselves if they want to know what I'm thinking about. I think you're going to sell like hotcakes. I can not wait to read this, but I wanted to ask you, I know that two of the profiles in the book are of Robert O'Brien and Mike Pompeo. I was with both of those men last week. I'm curious what your assessment of both of their intentions and odds are showed president Trump not enter the race. And if he should. Well, it's very interesting. Let me start with Mike Pompeo, the former Secretary of State because I spent so much time researching him and reporting on it. He wants to run for president. And in fact, in a podcast interview a couple of weeks ago and it's a companion to my book, so it's also athlete titled in Trump's shadow. I asked secretary Pompeo, if I said I know you're not going to tell me if you're running or not today, I'm not that I'm not that crazy. But I said, if Trump decides to run a third time, does that automatically mean you will not. And he would not say as some have said that that automatically means he would not. He said, look, if you're going to run for president, you need to believe that you have something unique and critical to offer the country at a time in history. He is planning to run and everything he is doing is about planning to run. Robert O'Brien, who I profile less, but did mention is a very interesting figure because he comes from the traditional wing of the party, but he fit in very well with Trump in The White House and was his most successful national security adviser from the perspective of doing the job and not getting crosswise with the commander in chief. Could be a very interesting dark horse candidate as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. He's a Mormon. He comes from the west. There are pockets of Mormon voters in Arizona and Nevada, Idaho, other states where multi candidate primary, you might be able to do some damage. He's also interested in running. I classify him as less interested in Pompeo.

Pompeo on Milley Allegations: We Need to Get to the Bottom of This as Quickly as Possible

"We're talking merely with talking treason sedition and somebody has an opinion and he's the former director of the cia and secretary of state. Mike pompeo cut six. We should make sure that we as quickly as we can't figure out it generally spoke to woodward himself we should find out if a general mills prepared to testify. We can do it tomorrow or the next day to get clarity. About what general milley set. I don't know the dod policy sean. Exactly whether there would be a transcript of this phone call. But i promise you. There were no takers in the room. I'm very competent that that conversation can be reconstructed if if you had a senior military leader who was simply an adviser. Tell the chinese communist party that they would get noticed. Seven attack this rivals. Anything we've seen in our nation's history Only the president of the united states has the capacity to make those decisions. And i'd be shocked if the then acting secretary defense give him any authority to even contemplate that very conversation. It would only be those two people. The could've told general milley to have that conversation if in fact it took

Worried Trump Could 'Go Rogue,' Milley Took Secret Action to Protect Nuclear Weapons

"Now the big story in washington. Dc and it really did grip the city yesterday is what the general milley say and doom did he say it after the new woodward and cost a book peril has appeared. The white house stepped forward to defend general milley against charges. He did anything inappropriate. Editorials in the washington post and the wall street journal both call for infant investigations and hearings under oath general milley for fear that he is compromised. Not merely american defense into conversations with china but the constitutional order. Now i have said from the beginning two days ago. Hold your fire on this. Wait and see. Acting secretary of defense miller who had replaced mark esperer at the time of the second call says he did not authorize the call and that's extraordinary cause for resignation. Mike pompeo went on fox with hannity last night and made some comments on this. What you to your secretary pompeo number one. I have no recollection of a conversation. Like that. look we were all pretty down. We are about to hand over the reins of foreign policy to what this administration we. We've seen these last eight months. What that means for the united states of america so if someone asked was excited about january twentieth and the fact that we were no longer going to have the capacity to secure american freedom. Count me for being a pretty dark place to. But what's important to know sean. Is you know all this has as a product that somehow there was. This fear there was there was a cabinet members. Run around concern. The donald trump was going to engage in some kind of rogue activity or some kind of act of war to sorta lash out. This never happened. Just it's just patently absurd and so the entire credit for all of this assessment that woodward is now laid out in his book. We'll see what turns out but make no mistake about it. During that entire time the entire time. I served all four years. We conducted orally foreign policy. We had national security team. That was working hard to make sure we make the best decisions. We possibly good. And i think the data set which show that. We did a pretty damn effect job and doing that.

"But I want you to hear from President Trump. He was on Hannity last night, and it was a tremendous interview by Sean With the president. And I want you to hear a little piece of this. Because I have something additional to say about it and try and set this straight once and for all. So stick with me. It will all make sense. Cut three Go. No, they have the cards with this group, and there are things you can do to counter it and things you can do to counter it very strongly, but they have the cars. But when you say secretary of state when you watch the decisions that are going to be made and being made, and you know what's going to be made because they played all their cards and look at the great job that Mike Pompeo did because he's tough. And he's smart number one of his class at West Point and a great student of the Harvard Law School. He was He did a great job, as secretary said, but he was tough and he knew what was happening with this, and he knew what was happening with China and Russia, and we would talk. Often. We had it all planned out, and then they decided to move the military out. And let's not follow the plan. It's like the only thing is, it's like the water wall. Nobody could handle it Worse were the greatest. We had the greatest protection that we've ever had on our southern border, and now we have the worst. And it was the worst nightmare to watch it that looks good by comparison to what's happening in Afghanistan. Okay? Something shocking happened. The Associated Press and our friend that right school, Brian Pointed it out. Biden has been saying all along that he was pinned into withdrawing from Afghanistan based on Trump's agreement with the Taliban. And he said more than that. Or we had to pour in, you know an enormous number of military resources. But stunningly, the AP points out how untrue

Biden Admin Doesn't Know the Number of Stranded Americans in Afghanistan

"Breaking news the washington post this morning as director william burns met with the The senior leader of the taliban yesterday in kabul william burns went over. There secretly held the meeting face to face with abdul. Ghani bara dr It's the highest face to face encounter between the taliban in the bite administration boras also man who met with Titrate state mike pompeo last year. I'm joined by byron. York of the washington examiner byron does that maybe give us the clues to why the administration is being so secretive as to what is going on and the timeline in kabul hallel byron. You might be on go ahead. you're on now okay. It could but it underscores the perhaps the ugliest fact of this entire affair which is that. The united states is dependent on the good graces of the taliban. It sounds insane to say that but we are dependent on the good graces of the taliban to get americans out american citizens american Not forces and those Afghans who aided the american military effort. So the the fact that you know. We're having meetings with the taliban. In which in this case i think has to be done. Underscores the dependence position that the president has put us in here now bar. Dr of course does not control al qaeda or isis or any of the other splinter groups. That are there. It is unclear to me whether or not we actually have operational security guarantees from the taliban. But the thing that i'm certain about we don't know how many americans are there and i doubt that the united states government does but do you think they have at least a minimum number. They might release to us byron. Well i was relieved to find out yesterday that there are not stranded not stranded because the white house told me that But i think it's an well. Let's say this if the if the us government knows how many americans are there and he's not saying I don't know the explanation for that. But i'm taking them at their word that they literally do not know how many americans are in afghanistan

Biden Doubles Down on Afghanistan Decision

"Mike pompeo on this show in front and said it's pointless argue counterfactual because we don't know what happened with a counterfactual. What happened is a disaster in the president yesterday on sunday arguing that there was no alternative. This was going to happen. No matter what plan we had is not persuasive. Except i don't even think. Five percent of the american people believe it had to be this way claim number two from friday jake. Let's play cut number forty one. The military has secured the airport as you mentioned. But will you sign off on sending us troops into kabul to evacuate americans who haven't been able to get to the airport safely. We have no indication that they haven't been able to get in couple through the airport. We've made an agreement with with the taliban this far. Jake sherman true or false false. I mean false. Because not because i'm in kabul i'm not but because We have reporters on the ground. Who have had trouble getting to the airport. Not punishable news but cnn cbs. Spot and bc. I mean we know that people are having trouble getting to the airport so let me play one more claim from friday. Then want to ask you about congressional offices because they are some unsung heroes out. There both republican and democrat third claim by president biden on friday. What interests do we have in afghanistan. At this point with al qaeda gone we went to afghanistan for the express. Purpose of getting rid of al qaeda in afghanistan as well as as well as getting no sama been lot jake sherman. We know bin laden is dead. We don't know where zawahiri is. What was the reaction around town to. The president's claim that al qaeda was gone. Well i think other people in his administration have indicated the opposite that al-qaeda indeed is a resurfacing in afghanistan and mike resurface in afghanistan. And furthermore what. A lot of people have said to me is what we went into other countries with express purposes that had been solved and stays in those countries for years and in many cases were still in those countries to keep the peace to advance foreign policy initiatives so You know. I think that is the general reaction that i think it was. Maybe the most disastrous five questions of presidents ever been out for

How Chaos In Afghanistan Emboldened Terrorism - burst 1

"Chaos in afghanistan upton as president biden withdrew military forces leading to a forceful takeover by the taliban today august seventeenth. We will dive into one of the greatest foreign policy. The buckles in modern history. Good afternoon. i'm meeting. Kim and this is the outspoken oma quote. Joe biden has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy national security issue over the past four decades and quote. Who said that not trump not a partisan congressmen or republican operative. That was robert gates. The former secretary of defense under president obama for three years and today as we see significant foreign policy the buckle unfolds in afghanistan that quote is once again reaffirmed now quickly dive into some basic background information as to what is transpiring in afghanistan back in mid april president biden announced immediate withdrawal all american troops from afghanistan by september eleventh. Twenty twenty one. Obviously september eleven was chosen dates because that was to recognize the anniversary of the september eleventh terrorist attacks and which led to the immediate was occupation of afghanistan because at the time afghanistan was harboring osama bin laden on august fifteenth. The taliban took over the capital of kabul effectively toppling. Afghanistan's governments later afghan. President ghani fled the country right before taliban leadership storm the presidential palace and thousands of afghan citizens fled to kabul international airport to skip the taliban. Now while oldest was transpiring. President biden was in camp david and he was strong criticized because he didn't have a strong message or strong immediate message in response to all of this so he traveled back to washington. Dc to address the nation from the white house one of the biggest elements that he was criticized for in the speech was the blame game in which he played and one of the obviously notable people in which she blames forwarded the buckle in afghanistan was trump and sort of implied some blame to bush and obama. He said quote when i came into office. I inherited deal that president trump negotiated with taliban on the his agreement. Us forces would be out of afghanistan. May i twenty twenty one. Just a little over three months after i took office. Us forces had already drawn down during trump administration from roughly fifteen thousand five hundred american force to two thousand five hundred troops in country. The taliban was strongest militarily. Since two dozen one the choice i had to make as your president was added to follow through on that agreement or be prepared to go back to fighting the taliban in the middle of the spring fighting season and quote. And but if you actually look at the deal that trump's state department may with taliban it's not what biden actually described in his address at a nation. Mike pompeo who was secretary of state under president trump said in a recent interview that the deal of the taliban was strictly conditional which meant that deal was was strictly predicated on the taliban committing to a peaceful transfer of power in order for america to withdraw after that commitment to a peaceful transfer of power appel said in a recent interview quote we would have demanded the taliban actually deliver on the conditions that we let out in the agreement including the agreement to engage in meaningful power sharing agreement some that which we struggled to get them to do but made it clear it was going to be required before we completed requirements to fulfil foley withdrawal and unquote. And you know there are some criticisms of the deal. Mike pompeo made with the taliban. Obviously the taliban actually pursuing a peaceful transfer of power from the afghan government was not going to happen. I mean we actually thought. That was being overly idealistic. So people had that criticism upon pales deal but even if biden did not agree with the policy that trump's state departments made in efforts to come to some sort of consensus with the taliban he kind of reversed it. I mean he was president for seven months. Which meant that. He'd independence day department and independence defense department and he could have used his powers as the chief executive to to reverse a deal that the previous administration made i mean for his entire time as president of the united states reversed nearly every single policy. That trump did while he was president. So this is no exception. I mean he should own up to the flaws of the policies in which he tried to pursue in addition to to trump he also blamed the afghan military. He said quote. The truth is but this did on for the more quickly than we had anticipated. So what happened. Afghanistan political leader escape up and fled the country the afghan military collapse. Sometimes we're not trying to fight if anything developments at the past week reinforced the ending. Us military involvement in afghanistan. No was the right decision. American troops cannot ensure not be fighting a war and dying in award. Afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves and quotes. This is honestly one of the most politically cynical things that i've ever heard biden say the afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves. Fifty thousand afghan military soldiers died in darndest entire two decades of us occupation of afghanistan. And the reason why they cannot successively defend themselves against the taliban was because biden himself pulled out a contractors and basically destroyed the afghans dependency on us military which are obviously undermined the ability of afghan military to counter act opposing taliban forces. According to the wall street journal quote in the wake of president biden's withdrawal decision the us pulled its airports air support intelligence and contractors servicing afghanistan planes and helicopters. This meant that afghan military simply cannot operate anymore and quote. Admittedly afghan leadership was significantly underprepared in the wake of the draw because as by afghan officials did not believe america will draw however according to andrew watkins a senior analyst for afghanistan and at the international prizes group research advocacy organization. There was no evidence that the taliban significantly increased their manpower and argue. The only reason why there's summer offensive was successful was due to a lack of us. Air strikes which meant that biden's administration shorter significant blame for the dismantling of the afghan government. What biden actually expect to happen when he pulled the entire the tire. Us presence from afghanistan if the afghan military dependent so much on the us occupation of afghan for the viability of their own independent military force. Then of course when they pulled out of afghanistan. The afghan military by itself was not sufficient enough to defend against the taliban if you're pulling out intelligence contracts that were vital for the dependency of the afghan military than have military is expected to fall when the taliban was advancing to the nation's capital and one of the other things that addition to buy actually blaming everyone except for himself for the marco afghanistan biden also discussed casualties in the in the afghan occupation. He said quote. Lemme ask those who wanted to wanted us to stay. How many more how. Many thousands more of american daughters and sons are willing to risk and quotes according to abc news. There's not been a single american combat death since february eighth twenty which was eighteen months ago. That's not to belittle the two thousand three hundred twelve american soldiers that lost life in afghanistan. But it is the suggests that thousands of stationed american soldiers in the lead up to the afghanistan pull out were not being bogged down by precipitous warfare in combat honestly by contrast more than fifty one thousand taliban fighters were killed by american armed forces which shows a major power imbalance in military superiority between taliban in american forces but aside from that by reportedly sent five thousand additional troops back in afghanistan to aid withdrawal despite his call for not putting sons and daughters at risk he just said that it was egregious to put american sons and daughters at risk for filled mission. So what is different about the five thousand additional troops. He sending back into afghanistan. Aren't those sons and daughters. Also at risk and to add insult injury tens of thousands of american citizens have been left behind it in afghanistan in the withdrawal according to the washington according to wall street journal an estimated ten thousand fifteen thousand new citizens remained in afghanistan so yes it is tragic. Every single american soldier died in. afghanistan is a tragedy. No one is disputing dance but suggests that afghanistan was a present danger to the current military soldiers. There from february twenty is simply not true and biden. Really closer to speech with i think when idiotic things that he said in his entire speech close with kohl's diplomacy he said quote. We will continue to support the afghan people we will lead before. Diplomacy or international influence in or humanitarian aid will continue to push for regional diplomacy and engaging prevent violence and instability will continue to speak out for the basic rights at the afghan people of women and girls just as we speak all around the world and quote and my question is just how. How can you negotiate with radical barbaric terrorist group that subject it's ethnic religious and gender minorities to brutal torture and murder. How can you negotiate with democratic for cystic regime. That is responsible for thousands of american lives. I mean honestly gonna ask nicely are gonna get on your knees and begged them to treat the afghanistan woman fairly. I mean i don't understand why biden continues to believe that's diplomacy instead of for actually using military forces is the correct way to go and this brings us back to. What was this for honestly at the end of the day with withdrawn. Us military forces from afghanistan he effectively reversed two decades of foreign policy and the initial mission of counter terrorism and preventing a staging ground for al-qaeda according to the pentagon united states government has been eighty three billion dollars in bolstering the afghanistan government and which is effectively gone to waste. I mean we spend easily billion dollars to bolster an afghan military but the afghan military is so reliance on the american forces to to help them to secure them. But when the american forces are removed from the afghan military to aid them than the billion dollar investment goes down the drain and now according to you defense and state department officials six billion dollars in military equipment including eight hundred fifty mine-resistant ambushed protected vehicles were abandoned in withdrawal which six billion dollars in. Us military equipment is now in the hands of taliban and other terrorist organizations additionally chairman of the joint chiefs of staff mark milley addressed congressional leaders and said that they will move the terrorist threats in afghanistan from medium according to axios which meant that. Obviously you're going to see a rise in terrorism and afghanistan and now that the taliban effectively controls its governments and to add insult injury the inside reports that taliban militants released thousands of prisoners from afghan prisons with links to islamic jihadist groups and al qaeda. So what has changed in the past two decades. We've tried to counter terrorism. We tried to decrease the the influence of kind of effectively imprisoning or killing al qaeda militants. We tried to decrease the the power of the taliban and we tried to effectively counteract attacks by the islamic jihadist groups. But it seems to me after this withdrawal after the dust settled what is going to be. The state of afghanistan will be similar to the state of afghanistan when we first invaded and his brings me to a new york times article which discussed heavier mackey. Who was a former first class army. Special forces soldier with several afghanistan deployments and will shot twice and he said in an interview with the new york times quote. I sacrificed a lot. I saw death every day every year. And the guys. I soaked with new would probably come to an end like this. But the chaos and made his andre after everything we gave. I just wish that had been away to leave. With honor and quote for people like mackey. There is a question that rang in numerous veterans. What was it for the situation. Afghanistan has become similar to america. I evaded two decades ago. All the bloodshed in lives lost in pursuit of counter-terrorism only define the terrorism revitalize. This president has trade the continuing efforts of veterans and committed a damaging dereliction of duty as commander in chief of the armed forces is devastating. What is happening in afghanistan and we can only hope citizens in afghanistan. Remain safe in this critical juncture. All right before we signed off. I like to extend a special.

"Morning glory america bones or high candidate. You hear at joined by jake. Sherman of punchbowl news on the most shameful day. I've been broadcasting in thirty years. Not the most shocking gay. That was nine eleven. This is the most shameful day for america that have been on the air in thirty years. Good morning jake how are you. How are you good. I wanna play for you. A number of reaction. Get your reaction your political reporter. I don't expect national security commentary from you. But i'd love your political commentary on various things that are said here is former secretary. Mike's state. Mike pompeo on with fox news with chris wallace yesterday cut number ten. He should be less focused on trying to a blame. It on someone else solving the problem of making sure that we protect and defend american security. Chris it's worth noting. This did not happen on our watch. We reduced our forces significantly. The taliban didn't advance on capitals all across afghanistan. So it's just a fact that this is happening under the bite administrations leadership now. Almost a quarter of a way into his first term. This is this is not the way leaders lead by pointing backwards. We had a bad deal. We inherited the jcp away. We got out of it. We secured america from the risk from iran. We inherited a horrible deal in syria. Where isis controlled real estate. This is of great britain. We crush them. Every president confronts challenges. This president confronted a challenging afghanistan. He is utterly failed to protect the american people from this challenge. Jake sherman. what do you think i mean. He's right right. I mean every president does a set of circumstances that are beyond its control And has to deal with them and i think that's there's no doubt about that. I mean listen the the the larger Question to me here. And this is going to be overarching. You is how did this happen. How how was.

Biden's Botched Afghan Exit Is a Disaster

"One of the great beltway. World-weary nobody bremmer called me. Partisan yesterday for speaking the absolute truth that this is all on one hundred percent. Joe biden the simpering leftist. Appeasement crowd has been out saying that. This is not joe. Biden's fault it's donald trump's fault. Mike pompeo sign that agreement. Mike pompeo was on fox. news yesterday. laying down the complete and utter and perfectly persuasive rebuttal to that nonsense seven months in office. They've been there seven months to have kept the twenty five hundred american soldiers. Five thousand nato troops in american airpower that we had agreed to keep their until an agreement had been negotiated between the afghan government and the taliban on power-sharing which foresaw anticipated a partition of the country into taliban zones and into free zones totally overrun. You got a week ago. By the way in konduz very well documented in the washington post and a report that i linked at hughhewitt dot com on my twitter account. But let me read to you. The wall street journal editorial president biden's statement on saturday. Washing his hands of afghanistan deserves to go down as one of the most shameful his history by commander in chief at such a moment of american retreat as the taliban closed in on kabul. Mr biden's in a confirmation of us. Abandonment that absolves himself of responsibility deflected blame to his predecessor and more or less invited the taliban to take over the country with that statement of capitulation the afghan military's last resistance collapsed taliban fighters captured kabul president. Ghani fled the country. While he was frantically tried to evacuate americans the jihadist us toppled twenty years ago for sheltering osama bin laden will now fly their flag over the us embassy building on the twentieth anniversary of nine eleven.

Will Iran Get a Nuclear Weapon Under the Biden Administration?

"Do you think iran's gonna get nuclear weapon in this administration. I don't know that they'll get it on their watch. But they'll make real progress They're going to have to. What do you need to build a nuclear weapon. You need to make sure that you can do it in hidden places So there is no one comes after it second. You need to have the money tools and resources to build out the infrastructure to do that and then you need the political cover that gives you the space to do it by demonstrations going to provide them each of those three things and how we starved the iranian regime. They're on their last four billion dollars. In foreign exchange reserves. It took us two and a half years to put that much pressure on them at. It saddens me because the people in the gulf parts and friends that we have in israel and america will be more risk as iran continues to move close to nuclear weapon. Charlie even as they get close even when they don't have the complete cycle their capacity course increases the capacity to say that if you don't do what it is we'd like you to do israel if you don't do what you like us to to the saudis then those countries will feel under the thumb because they know arana's even even if iran is only on the cusp of getting those weapons systems and they will have much more leverage in proxies to do

"mike pompeo" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show

"These are people who love freedom they want nothing more than out from under the tyranny that was brought to them by castro now his successor crony. And so. we're gonna do everything we could to help them. That always begins with taking away. Money and power from the people who are the oppressors and so we began to put a sanctions regime in place. I made the declaration. When i became secretary that they were a state sponsor of terror. They've sponsored terror around the world. All this putting pressure on the regime. And i can. I can promise you this Had the uprising. Taking place seven months ago it would have taken two seconds for the state department issue. A statement saying that these are people that are loving freedom. The communist dictatorship is evil. And where were the people of cuba. It took them several days. And frankly i think the president to read from three by five guard hoops. Doing this is really explain it. I i can't explain. it's a little bit. It's like this narrow thing. I do exactly. It's not it's like a weird piece of paper again. Figured out their customer. I can't figure it out. But i can tell you the advice. He's getting from those little things written on now. Talk breathe right. You are president. I mean it is. It is remarkable. Look i wish that go back and just adopt. Say model if they did. I am convinced the cuban people would have the space they need to ultimate the nature of. What's going on there doesn't appear that's the path they're headed down. They're gonna placate the regime. They'll send money to them This is absolutely tragic. Anybody who's met any of the folks who have lived in cuba and then come to. The united states knows that the united states has a responsibility to help. The cuban people be successful and free and this really is the window to liberate the cuban people from this repressive government mean in the seventies and eighties. There of soviet kind of actor at play and right now this is basically an opportunity where the younger generation is ready to rise up. Very least we could provide internet service through satellites. Yes and there's all sorts of creative ideas. There are lots of ideas certainly given the ability to connect and communicate remember. That's what we did in poland when reagan did in poland ready helped solidarity movement with printing presses and the capabilities of different time but the capacity for them to communicate with and and this is something we could do. We could do it rather easily. I suspect this administration's going to walk away from that opportune for sure. I think cuba's can kind of just be forgotten so let's go to europe. You guys did a wonderful job of totally changing the way that european negotiations are done. I think you gave. I think it was nato the most beautiful building i've ever seen the history of the world but we didn't only pay for as taxpayers. Is that right that's right. We have great friends in europe. They're they're an ally and partner in our security apparatus but for an awful long time we let them just walk all over us. Yes that ended when president trump. And i can't The capacity did influence that we we only ask to them that they do as much as we did if they were. They needed security great. We'd be happy to be partners in that security arrangement push back against the threats but they needed to step up and it just it. It was remarkable either on the very first trip that i took with the president when we went to the nato summit and he simply said you all made some promises about the money. You're gonna spend. Could you just make good on them. That's right and it was. It was as if we too walked in as a skunk in the garden party but we were right in the end they. We made them do it. We co we created the the environment where they knew was in their best interest to do it. So some four hundred forty billion dollars of european taxpayer money now to support our efforts that the secretary general there fell jens stoltenberg a amazing person. Thanks us for saving. Nato in that sense of building out a nato that now was common writing a common defense unit before had been the american defense unit with a handful of stragglers. It was really important work. That president trump did there and I think that one will actually last and geopolitically. It's much smarter to try to build the partners than just have america to subsidize the entire thing. Charlie if you don't have any skin in the game you're less likely to be there when it matters most at the moment with that the fair punked when the challenge comes right when when that moment comes if you don't have any skin in the game it's pretty easy to walk away and it's the europeans were in a place where they could have easily walked away now. They've got a lot more investment than one more thing. Wanna focus just on the european theater. is the stunning reversal from the media. That they're perfectly okay with russian pipelines going into germany. They're perfectly okay with meetings vladimir putin and secrecy and the position of your administration is at. Russian is an enemy and adversary. If there's places of collaboration we can work on then so be it. But we don't trust them generally doesn't seem this administration is even close to as as harsh on russia as you guys were i remember quickly. You dispelled dip you. Expel diplomats of course sanctions. The ultimate irony is that for two and a half years a asserted that president trump was a russian asset and for four years. This administration did more to put pressure on vladimir putin than the previous one did in eight it started with a big bill in our security posture. If there's one thing that vladimir putin's afraid of it has a strong capable. Us military we then we expelled some diplomats but we we got out of a tree. There was a treaty that this two countries in one of them wasn't complying and we said that's interesting But we gotta get away from this so we walked away from a treaty that made no sense that was constraining the united states but not the russians and we make clued vladimir putin. There were things that we just work in a permit to happen and they didn't happen and sadly it appears that present biden's told them that there's about sixteen inch industries. They can't attack. And i don't know exactly what they are. But i feel bad for the seventeenth. Yet i mean ransomware attacks to the pipelines being built. And the media's just perfectly i guess okay with it or just uninterested when they're not able to caricature a republican is a russian agent. We set up just one more level. The whole world understood for four years. The president trump was serious about protecting america. That's a model. We know from the reagan years sprite. This idea of peace through strength the model that the world understood that there was a leader in america wasn't gonna go put forty thousand soldiers anyplace but was going to defend the things that mattered our interest and was going to have that as a priority. And so that. I think of that. In the context of them russian vladimir putin knows that he was able to take a fifth of ukraine under president obama. Do you think he believes. There's any reason the president biden would react any differently if he decided to take a chunk of syria or take another chunk in ukraine or whatever it may be or conduct ransomware. I don't think he he views them as being prepared to do the hard work of defending america yes in assad is basically consolidated power now a just kind of to glide path to dictatorship. Thanks to this kind of new geopolitical world. We're living in now. It's the middle east. That's kind of a segue. You did a wonderful job with israel and defending you know the state of israel against attacks back in may we saw probably more heated conflict than i think you saw four years at the trump administration. Is that fair to say. Oh absolutely the. That was an iranian attack. There's a proxy force called hamas in the gaza strip it in the end. These were iranian rockets. Launching down on israel iran continues to say that israel doesn't have the right to exist in want to wipe the little satan israel and the big satan off the face of the earth. We were having none of that..

The US Embassy Flying a BLM Flag Is Deeply Un-American

"But i. I just want to get one comment your thoughts on this idea of our embassies flying. The black lives matter flag. Could you imagine if under your direction as something like that happened. I mean how is this even allowed under state department protocol. so there's a bit of history there When i was a member of congress. I traveled to an embassy and saw the Gay pride flag flying from the embassy. And i was infuriated and so i wrote a letter at that twin towers. That's all i could really do. But then i became secretary state. And when i became secretary of state when those embassies worked for me i made very clear. We're gonna fly one flag from the flagpole at an american embassy. That was going to be the american flag. Charlie thought taken away their last nickel The the consternation the lawsuits the threats were staggering. And so it was truly disheartening to see at the maine state department facility in washington the main flagpole that is the center point for american diplomacy that the whole world would see the picture and they would know what they were looking at there and foggy bottom to watch the fbi. Employees fly from that flagpole. was just tragic This is an organization that is deeply against american marxist organization who don't believe in the very things our diplomats are supposed to be doing around the world and for this administration to have permitted at the fly from an american flag pole. I didn't even. I'm not sure have adjective. That can accurately describe how how disheartening west to see and how un-american it felt to me too overtly political too i mean they say it's not political but of course it is. It's deeply political. This is an organization of left yet and this is an organization to which many in the democrat party have pledged failty So yeah no. This was not only not only political but it was deeply inconsistent with the values set of american equivalent. That we used on our show is what if every state department flag flew in. Nra flag

Let's just call it a listener rights. Okay ladies and gentlemen now. A segment of a listener writes a listener. No one album. I just got a letter from a listener to give his name. No well it. Rhymes with jack conley. I'm not gonna. I'm not going to. I wouldn't say it. Okay it's just the initials j. c. kojak and we use which is not even error but it says this is incredible. Sometimes it's very funny. The next letter is very funny. This letter is really serious and it really moved me to tears. It says dear eric. I just completed your biography of bonn hoffer thank you for such provocative inspiring challenging read. I'm a catholic priest and so deeply appreciative of your work. I assure you writing and preaching will be different now. You have opened my eyes. Thanks john. I'm not going to say the last name but it's a see i. I wanna tell you folks when i get something like this. You know you write books. I prayed so hard. When i was writing the bond hoffer book that god would use the book for his purposes but eleven years later to get a letter like this that this is a priest saying that his writing in his preaching will be different as a result of reading this book. Now i know it's not. My book is the life of bond hoffer but the idea that i had the privilege of writing the book. So if you're looking for good book let me recommend my bag. Fubon hoffer not. Because i wrote it but because it's it's kind of the best summation book if you're going to read a book you want his whole life and just to be clear you don't have to be a priest or minister to read it. It helps but okay. Here's here's a letter now. This letter is serious. But i found it so funny i said i gotta read this on the air. I'm not going to mention the guy's name. But let's just say it's joe l. This is a real letter. The title in the email was. Your selection of only men is short-sighted and then it's it says the eric after enjoying your seven men book graduates edition i add misgivings about approving recommending or gifting. It and wondered why your picks lacked diversity as the number of women is zero. It's unlikely seven men will inspire female graduates. Your selection of only men is short sighted. Man that hurts. yeah so. I had to respond to joe l. and i wrote this. I'm not joking. That's the letter i got. And this is my response. Dear sir perhaps you will find my seven women book more diverse. Here's a link for you to purchase that book. But i must warn you upfront. That seven women does not include any men. I'm not sure what can be done at this point. But i thought you should know. Thanks for your email sincerely. Eric metaxas author. That's a real. That's a real letter. Somebody was upset that my book seven men graduates edition didn't include women and i don't really know how to respond to that because it hurts it stings because seven men. It's a fact folks. i'm not going to deny it. You know when you're when you're when you're wrong you're wrong. Seven men has no women in it. I'm guilty. You are and seven women to to double down on my non diversity. Seven women has no men in it. Oh what are you gonna do. The books are printed their published out people buying and reading them and being blessed by them. I'm sorry but you know big man to admit all this. I must thank you.

"Folks it's ask metaxas time. That's right. I'm playing the role of taxes. And you acce the questions or ask depending on where you're from ask metaxas. This is going to be kind of lightning round ten minutes. We've only got like six minutes and thirty seconds for this round and go. Oh okay here we go. How always is tim. Keller question number one is. How tall is tim. Keller that's question number one. I said people could ask me anything. Okay but i was not expecting that. Yeah i'll i'll answer it okay. He's about six three and a half. I'm not kidding. But the weird thing about. Tim keller is look. He's a friend. He's been a friend for years. Tim keller is kind of a big guy. It's like sebastian gorka from a distance. He looks you know normal. He doesn't look tall. Then when you get up to him you realize he's really tall. So when i say next to him i feel tiny like sebastian gorka. Because they're just they're normal. Proportions are normal but they're huge. But can i add grew quickly. You look normal until you in part and then you see me in person and realize a freak. You're like bus freak. I tell you okay redel. When will you have jordan peterson. Or finagle an invite to his podcast. Okay i'm really sick of this question. Everybody says this when you can have jordan peterson. What are you going to give you a minute. Are you friends with jordan peterson. Why don't you get him to invite me on his podcast. Tell him he needs to reach out to us. Because he's jordan. Peterson he's kind of a big deal. And it's kind like when you gonna paul mccartney on when you get ready to have him on now but he's kind of hard to get to so if you have any connections elton john. Paul mccartney jordan peterson please. Folks go to their website. Badger them tell them to contact us. That'd be nice gesture. Okay this is the ask metaxas. Lightning round question three book recommendations. What are you reading. What am i reading your assuming i read. Actually i'll tell you the truth what i'm reading. I'm reading don quixote or the quick as it was referred to in the nineteenth century by pretentious british. People don quixote written by set of this don quixote is one of those classic classic classic books that everybody raves about. But i've never read and people assume since i'm eric metaxas. I've read everything folks very far from very far from it. I am deeply ashamed of the abc's in my Reading so i was in Kansas city with the mike bickel and company and in the book line. Someone came up to be now forgetting his name. I just read it this morning. Because he signed my book and he starts talking to you about clarisa and about About don quixote classic books from previous centuries. Kalisa don quixote like seventeenth century books and. i thought i'd never read them and he was going on and on and the next time i came to kansas city. 'cause i came back for sean event and then i went back to kansas city. He hands me. A copy. Of don quixote that bought for me. And so i said i get to read it bon hoffer raved about don quixote and in my book on bond hoffer which i recommend He raves about don quixote which he read in the original spanish because he's brilliant you know hotshot bon hoffer and when he was in spain as a very young man. He a as a youth pastor in german congregation in barcelona or but alone as as the burst. Bolognaise say and so don quixote's what i'm reading right now. Thank you for that question any other questions. Yeah how do you pronounce bankers bangor gore us is pronounced bang. Bangor not bangor bangor and by the way. That is a shibboleth a shibboleth. In the in the in the old testament. There's a moment with the people who are from the place called shibboleth they pronounce it sybil eth- and everybody else pronounces it shibboleth and so as their crossing the stream. It's like they're asking them where you from. If they mispronounced it. They know they're lying. And they them. So a shibboleth is a word that divides the locals from the non locals. Quincy massachusetts the same kind of thing. Everybody reasons as quincy. Quincy quincy but the local sake quincy so bangor is a shibboleth. Say bangor people. No you're not from bangor next question. Okay if you're from pittsburgh if you call it the bird than everybody knows your from pittsburgh now. Any plans to come to chicago this year. That's the question you know of all the ask metaxas questions that i've done in the segment this is by far the most recent and it's challenging any plans to come chicago this year. Now here's another thing it's like. The jordan peterson question. When people say to me eric give any plans are. Why don't you come here. When i need to be invited. I don't just like show up at a church or school in chicago start lecturing. I need to be invited. So if you are affiliated with oh. I don't know the moody church or some some mega church. is willow creek still open If you're affiliated with a big church ask them to invite me if we can work it out. I will come. I would love to come. It's been a while since i came to chicago. I would love to come to chicago. But i have to get invited. That's a rule that i have. If you invite me then. I can say. Eric would like you to invite him to hawaii as well. And now if you're from a church there of course yeah. How do you respond to the claim. That god is different in the old testament versus the new testament. That's a tough question. Well there's there's a one word answer for that. Can you guess what it is pass. That's not the word. oh the. How do you respond to the claim. That god is different. In the old versus the new testament. Well the one word answer that i would respond with is jesus there you go. Jesus who is god and cornet whom i worship as the second person of the trinity clearly saw the new testament and himself as the fulfillment of the old testament so there can be no disparity unless you read them sloppily in other words unless you don't know how to read it or understand the context. But if you understand the context you understand in the old testament. God is preparing people for himself. The the israelites are his people and part of the reason he prepares them and chooses them is to bring the messiah into the world. Does the new testament and the whole point of preparing people for himself was sold. Messiah would come out of those people and then the whole world through the messiah could worship the god of the israelites. And so that's my short answer the long answer. We may do another time. We're just about out of time album. This has been a lightning round of ask taxes that folks every week. We're going to do this every single week. Be prepared all right. We're gonna come back final segment and then of course we've got our today. Which is another story. But we'll be right back with some exciting stuff down. I've got seven women on mine. Stone wants.

Okay and i'll world how organization and out there on on top of this thing. Now they were able to get us to wear the masks right for for the last virus. Will this one from the caribbean. It's called the pirate pandemic all so the one so the one from from china the china the hung flu pandemic from china. That's kind of like old news. You're talking about a new virus from the caribbean. This is the new right so it seems to enter through the right eye. So you're supposed to now wear an eye patch so on. i'm doing it.

Apparently came from hard to ride a bicycle. It does because you perception anyway so so. So you're you're already on this all right. They said it came from a feather market. Apparently caribbean yes. Sick parrot they think okay but some people think it came from an unsanitised beer tap at the pnc park in pittsburgh where the pirates play. But from pittsburgh. I don't wanna take that you know that's one way or another it's tied into pirates because you've got the parrot in the caribbean. Yeah or the the the pnc got now. They said that if it saves just one line just one life out of the eight billion on the planet we should all wear the eye patch and they said that a couple of weeks it might actually affect the left eye as well. It's a new variant strains. Yeah so i'm i'm getting ready. I'm ahead of the game. Oh look at this so you got to ipads a nats how you show love i.

The only problem though is when you drive a vehicle. It's going to be tough. You may kill other people that you wouldn't kill you know through the infection you may you may crash into them and stuff but you know what that will be regarded as a pirate pandemic death anyway. So who's whoever's keeping score the only way you could die from these flus. So i would just say go for it dr blind and you know what we're supposed to drive by faith and not by sight various. Oh the even the idea of not wearing the eye patch in a in a way that's faithless. Okay that's trusting in the arm of the flesh and alvin. I just wanna commend you again. You drive by faith not by sight. That is awesome. I five. I hope yeah i hear it forget it said that all right forget it all right well okay anyway.

Freedom Is Not a Free Ride: Taking America Back With Secretary of State Mike Pompeo

"I really think that you know when you when you see what's happening in america today you realize this is kind of a classic pattern. God allows things to go too far as i said earlier to wake his people up and the enemy always plays in his hands and goes just a little bit too far and then suddenly people wake up. I never thought it would get this bad this quickly but it seems that it has taken the madness. I mean whether we're talking about antifa or the transgender madness. I mean most americans if they can finally focus they look they say. Wait a minute. But bruce jenner is a woman. You're telling me. I have to use this pronoun. You're telling the people burning down buildings aren't doing anything wrong. They're peaceful protesters. Notice your average american voice the way you do. I do looks around and says this has gone too far. Madness has been unleashed on the land. I need to do something for my kids for my grandkids. I thought freedom was a free ride. And i realize now have to pick up my gun and go to the phone lines. Maybe not literally. But it's a similar thing you realize that everything you held near and dear is being threatened directly when your kids are being threatened. Said you don't care you're gonna do whatever it takes. It's about the kids. You know the instinct you know what the lord and teaches us about parenting. The parents aren't about to take out a lot. They're not about to allow this to happen in their schools. They may not seen it. 'cause they worked but you know. I think the combination of having the kids at home during kobe. I think the left's movement. I think the idea somehow that our country was founded the sixteen nineteen project. This this idea that we're were racist because we're white this is some parents are not going to sit back and allow to be propagated. And so it'll take a little time to regain control of the city. Councils of the school boards of these state boards reaches that ladder university system to become american universities today. They're largely not american and frankly not the kind of university anybody would be proud of. I think people are gonna take this all back in. What they need is good leaders. Who are fearless. Helping them figure out where to apply their shoulder to the grindstone. We know choices

There are as i said earlier. Very few people who are committed to a make america great again for lack of a better term agenda who understand that we can no longer play politics as usual. It's just. It's just not going to work if we're not willing to fight. Trump was to me the ultimate warrior willing to take on. You know whether it's the deep state or whatever. Well how do you feel about that. Because we really aren't a strange moment. Where you can't say this but i can i think mitch mcconnell's skunk. I think kevin mccarthy is no better. I look at these people i thought they were on my side and realize they're not the kind of warriors we need. How do you see the party going forward when we have so many people that they simply don't seem committed when the chips are down so let me say to. The bible talks about this. It's actually about these times. Where there you talked about sifting. There's a time where those who are truly prepared to follow. Jesus and not just doing it because it's the cool thing to do well we'll find their way and the lord will reveal this. I see that happening all across the country today. I see some folks. Frank that i thought were friends. Who thought i was crazy for joining the trump administration. Goodness gracious even after you. Why did you stay. i stayed. Because he's hitler two point. Oh what is wrong with you. Having read my book. it's all laid out for everybody. Hitler two point zero run. These are my friends. These are people. I knew i knew what we were doing. I knew the mission set. That i had been given and i had this incredible privilege. And it's time it's time for the fearless. There's no time for the make that this is. This is america's moment what's taking place in our schools the crime in our cities. All of these things that we can say unraveling this most exceptional nation it fan for the real believers in the real conservatives to step forward and be absolutely fearless in doing so and obviously you know this is to me. Always god's mercy he lets things get really really bad to wake his people. And i see that happening in this country right now. That people are tolerant. People are loving. People are kind but eventually if you push them far enough and it takes a long time they finally say wait a minute wait a minute and now they're involved so you have things happening on local levels. Everybody just thought you know what trump's in office we're moving in a direction we realize as a result of is. I believe the election was genuinely stolen and it sickens me. Even to think that that might be true. It sickens me. But i think a lot of americans have woken up and so we don't even know what is going on in the grass roots level. Because you can't keep track of everything. But i think people are rising up and they're looking for folks like you and a handful of others in congress and they're saying we can. We can no longer do business as as usual. But i mean ten years ago.

And when he was in office, they never move the embassy to a Jerusalem as they claim they would. They never did. No, no God. No, also very soft on China. We're screwed. The days of America first off First of all, Listen to John Kerry before I get to that, because I got some stuff on on this Bloomberg Forum this unbelievable when you hear what they're proposing what they're thinking now that they believe Trump is lost, which it looks like he has It's actually absolutely incredible. But ah, Biden did name to his as his climate. Global warming czar John Kerry, who before Bo Tox, his face looked like a deflated football with eyes and now it's all puffy about John Kerry. Mister Mister Iran deal in the same thing with blinking. It was dying to get back in the Iran deal. All these things Carrie is actually the climate czar. So bye Bye.

Have you gotten a chance to speak with him or anyone inside his administration. Since all of this testimony began to come out in November from people who worked closely with Pompeo on what was happening in the Ukraine. I have not spoken to him But I you know I have spoken to people in inside and around the State Department and I think it's impossible to see The Ukraine scandal as it has morphed and unfolded as has not having a major impact on his political future You know before all of that It seemed very clear that he was headed towards running for Senate in Kansas in twenty twenty You know a as the first step in trying to set himself up to run for president in twenty twenty four. The Ukraine scandal has really had a deleterious effect on his Running of the State Department on Morale Inside the State Department and I think in many ways has tied his his future so inextricably to Donald Trump himself that Mike pompeo ultimately decided not to run run for the Senate and is going to stay on as secretary of state. And he you know. I think that there is no who future for Mike Pompeo That is not aligned perfectly.

Yes that's true if you admit that anything is wrong and You know I think that sort of part of the wonder of the trump administration is their ability to no matter what happens wins Declare victory and say that this is exactly what they intended all along so the key question has become will people like secretary pompeo actually testify when this trial moves forward in the Senate.

"So as Mike Pompeo, he can't do diplomacy when you're constantly going like a pendulum swings back and forth, because you can't really assess what your position is this could have been a fairly if indeed the drone attack was over international waters, as US as the US claims seems like a pretty risky move by Iran. They can't want a war with Washington, what you think the goal is here. I think the goal is to engage in negotiations. There might have been one errant general there that that shows to, to act or maybe it was just a mistaken. They thought it was. And I ran stay because there has been so many provocative acts that the United States is taken recently with more ships going into the state of moose and more to being sent over there and the escalation with Iran is totally connected with the president naming the revolutionary guard carries station so before that happened people were playing straight.

Mike Pompeo released on June third citing the tenement square thirtieth anniversary quote. We express our deep sorrow to the family still grieving their lost loved ones including the courageous Tiananmen. Mothers, who have never stopped seeking accountability despite great personal risk Mike Pompeo, set. He added the events of thirty years ago, still, there are conscience, and the conscience of freedom loving people around the world. My Salem colleagues at LeBron of AM nine sixty the answer in Phoenix reflected on this shameful event Tuesday. This is a week of really kind of political philosophy, rea-, fide are in concrete, if you will. When you think about the duality do dual cell celebrations, I shouldn't say celebrations, I should say anniversaries going on being the seventy fifth anniversary this week of d day, and of course, the thirty year anniversary that commemorates the slaughter at and square. I don't know if you saw Mike Pompeo, secretary of state about tenement square that came out and the Chinese embassy's response quite indicative of where we are at Mike Pompeo to his credit spoke, perhaps in a way more strongly about Tiananmen Square. Than george. Herbert Walker Bush did Mike Pompeo put out a statement that said we honor the heroic protest movement of the Chinese people that ended on June fourth nineteen eighty nine when the Chinese communist party leadership sent tanks and Tian on men square violently repress, peaceful demonstrations, calling for democracy, human rights and an end to rampant. Corruption, the hundreds of thousands of protesters who gathered in Beijing in another cities around China suffered grievously pursuit of a better future for their country. The number of dead is still unknown. We express our deep sorrow to the families still grieving their loved ones including the courageous, men mothers, who have never stopped, sinking accountability despite great personal risk. Think about that students. And this was a student led movement. And there are more Chinese in China who don't know about Tian on men than do is in that interesting. The embassy of shoe. A statement on China statement in the name of China on what Mike Pompeo said, listen to what they wrote the Chinese government and people reached the verdict on the political incident of the nineteen eighty s a long ago over the past four decades of reform and opening up China has enjoyed rapid economic and social development, continuous progress in democracy and the rule of law, flourishing culture, significantly improved standards of living, China's human rights are in the best period, ever socialism choice of history, and the people has been proved or right path in line with China's national conditions and supported by the whole population. This is, of course, how socialism acts, how socialism thrives and good for the secretary of state for standing up and calling out these human rights abuses, and the problems that exist in China, does not a socialist paradise. It is not a Marxist, paradise. It's not a Maoist Paradis. It's not a paradise of any kind how they can get away with writing that this is the kind of government, that was the choice of history. And the people that's their words isn't that one of the great lives of all time. But of course when you're government operates on the proposition that religion is opioid of the masses, you treat religious people the way most sing societies but treat drug dealers you imprison them on and on the lies go in these societies because it's the only way that the country can exist if the truth were told if the truth were told to the people, they would not any longer sit or stand for this kind of government. This is a country. That is afraid of the truth. It's not a country that exists on anything about lies and covering.
