What's on your mind? I I am calling regarding your thing about the site in psychic Warwick and you do know that she went bankrupt and she had to do commercials and trying to make some money. Is that why she was doing? Psychic network should going bank hunt? She went bankrupt. I guess it was. I believe it was like her manager. Whatever running and all of that. You know all that stuff that you know somebody to go and take care of Well, she found she woke up one day and found that she had no money. But is she if it was a psychic network, and she's been with him for a long time went and they have told her but see, I was waiting for you to say that I was going to jump in there. You see what I did there? I was so kind because I was going to jump in here with that. What? I figured Cheryl's going to get to that. You watch. She's gonna know I was right. You know exactly. Go on. You should have known this should you not have known this If you're a spot of the cycle into my psychic friend, But oh, well, you know, I feel bad for because she did have a great career and I didn't realize she'd gone bankrupt and had to do that. So Oh, well, yeah, it was. You know, it's almost like some of those other stars that had to go and start all over again. Debbie. What was her name? Debbie. The one who Ah. Used to sing all the time too. I mean, Debbie Reynolds. He went bankrupt. Yeah. Oh, Did she really soon husband? But she came back from it. But it was Sally Struthers for a while was doing some things. Teo Cameron what That was all about Sally Struthers, and then I see Larry King. Now he's doing some kind of That's a sad thing to me. The divorces, right kiss. So, Cheryl, that's just hard on a person. Well, Cheryl, thank you for that information. I'll keep that in mind. Very nice. If you thank you. Yes, that's tough When you're Larry King was Larry King. You know he's interviewing these. Ah You know, heads of state and Sinatra and all these and it was like now. Stars. Men's Edie, What does it tell me? What is what? Every stargate of hot tell me more. Did he tell me? I don't know. Tell me. Donna's in Fair Oaks. Don. Hello. Take a I'm getting a little bit off subject here. Okay? Completely. And I remember you did a shot similar to this. You're too ago. 20 minutes after this hour 8 2020. It'll be 2020 2020 20 in military time, the only thing only time that ever happened So I thought that was interesting. You know, Joe's look, Jo looks perplexed. And I'm a bit perplexed too. Because Joe, you tell me why you're perplexed. That would happen every day this year. That's what I thought too. Isn't it like, isn't it? I don't know. Like we're talking about military time. Right? B 2020 is a 20 pm, right? But 2020 every day this year at 8:20 P.m. would be 2020 20 in the year 2020 20 Technically, it would be 2020 of 10 13 2020. I did that. Tell you don't do that. I'm sorry for that. I know you think you think you're sorry. Listen, don, you have to be sorry for anything. I did that one night because someone told me that I went. Wow. You know what? 2020 20 and then I And then later on, I thought we'll wait a circuit that can't be the only time That this is going to be like that. Maybe I'm wrong. Think about it. You're right. I went off Facebook post post. I think that was my mistake to think about it. All right? I think we've both learned a lesson here, Dawn. And thank you. I think we both learned a lesson that not every single thing you read on Facebook is true. I just learned that and finally Piper before Joe Piper. Hello. Happy anniversary tomorrow. Thank you, though. Piper, we're dead. Okay? I'm a day early, but that's okay. I still liked it. Yes. So I before I was going to say about Halloween. I had to give a shout out to Sammy's picked up food there today. And I give, I said, you know, we could We come in here because we hear about you on the Pat Wall show And then he went and we keep coming because the food is great, and he went off on, you know, from 8 to 1. There's Moses in and we always have happy hour on on Monday Thursday, Sunday's all day and it was like He was so excited. It was really cool. Well, anyway, you just did a fabulous commercial first ladies and for stones once we are candle we need to trap that. And make sure that we have that tomorrow. Piper c. I'm trying not to lead anyone astray here. I'm just trying to be honest with people for so I hear is my Halloween. Comment. Well, first of all, I have this analogy where people touched an elephant in the elephant. So you know I could touch it on the tusk and say This is, you know, move and bony and this is what it elephant touches feels like and you could touch the leg and say it feels like a tree trunk. It's really rough on skin. And both of us That's our truth. That's how we experience elephants. So when I appreciated what Michelle said. Calling in because you know where her experience is. You know, she's seen people struggle with Koven. She's seen that firsthand. And from my perspective. I, um my kids would be if they were younger. They would be able to go out. I would be with them, obviously, but the reason for a part of my logic is I know there's been over 200,000 deaths. Related to covet, not and sent. Most of them are coveted. More billet morbidity related, and also I people go to the grocery store all the time. And high numbers and their kids were in the grocery store, and I don't hear and an unadjusted or an outrageous number of grocery people coming down with Covitz..

"That might mean trump's doing even worse among if you sampled a random sample so there. Are Different biases here that might conflict i. mean there is also this much bigger debate about how much is trump losing ground among white voters some of the data if taken at face value, which suggests that he is actually doing a little bit better with Hispanics and African Americans and worse with white voters. That's kind of if you look at the demographic cross tabs and of course, across tabs and polls can be small sample size. And other issues, but it is interesting will used to kind of worse with some with some white demographic grips right I mean he asked me doing worse somebody right because he's losing by seven or eight. Right. So what is so what is interesting potentially if as Harry pointed out in his piece, the military has made up a certain base of support for trump that's bad news losing it, but also the the idea that trump is losing. Old, like if we're talking about the veterans, which is Perry. points out is a different demographic group. You could see you see like in general people over sixty five. Are. Saying trump makes me feel less safe the idea that there's some movement because of trump's rhetoric but also because of the fact that Biden has associated himself with the military because his family served because you know on and on and on. Yeah I mean, even if we're comparing apples to apples here of the Military Times poll from two thousand sixteen to the Military Times poll in twenty twenty, and so roughly the same demographic groups in two thousand sixteen trump was leading amongst this group by twenty points in two thousand, Twenty Biden is leading amongst this group by four points. So even if the poll itself has certain biases, you would assume the biopsies would be the same both years. So something is changing and maybe you've hit. On A in terms of white people are shifting more towards Biden, or does it seem like there could be something specific to the military because of trump's relationship to the military over the past four years? It's hard to say right like I think sometimes these controversies like like I was reading the Jeff Goldberg piece in the Atlantic that we are all talking about that is you know anonymously sourced from four star generals who say's trump said these bad things about veterans about amputees bad stuff, right? I do wonder how much. The twitter controversy is trickling down actually this is an open question. I'm not sure how much some of these like trump speaks ill of the dead outside of the John. McCain. Thing which I think really did reach the broader population I'm not sure how much these little. Instances of trump saying something incredibly insensitive are percolating down and if we assume like you know maybe maybe people in the military are. Making. Political switches away from trump for different reasons for broad host of reasons, not specifically because of his remarks. Yeah, I mean it seems like. It's a little apples to oranges to try to tie the Atlantic article in with what rank and duty troops feel. You know I think someone who again joins the military is someone who's pretty awful about the role that institutions play. In the country including the military itself, and if you're someone who's thoughtful about institutions and kind of law and kind of not an all caps case, trump would use it kind of in a lower case version of that then you could see trump's..

Reporter Jeffrey Goldberg Addresses Trump’s “Loser” Remarks, Talks Using Anonymous Sources

"It has been a rough Labor Day weekend and the trump. White House where officials are absolutely full out freaking out about Thursday. Night's report in the Atlantic that trump had characterized Americans who died in war losers and suckers trump has spent the past four days repeatedly nine the story marshalling all kinds of people to. Come forward to knock it down he insisted today the quote an animal would say thing that the White House trotted out figures like Sarah Sanders who we know is lied to reporters multiple times to claim the report isn't true because they were there when trump didn't say the terrible things he allegedly said take they're hoping you don't think about that formulation too much. The main problem for the White House here is that the evidence supporting the story is pretty obvious and clear and almost overwhelming to anyone not inside the trump reality distortion bubble. The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg reported that trump cancelled a visit to an American military cemetery near Paris back in two thousand eighteen partially because he worried his hair would become disheveled in the rain and partially because he did not respect the American war dead interred there. In a conversation with senior staff members on the morning of the schedule visit trump said, why should I go to that cemetery? It's filled with losers in a separate conversation on the same trip trump preferred to the more than eighteen hundred marines who lost their lives at Bellawood as suckers for getting killed. Now, the sources in the story are anonymous you know anonymous sources are not as. Good. As name sources when you're evaluating something, but it doesn't mean that the claims came in on some anonymous tip line that no one knows where they came from. It means a reporter in this case, Jeffrey Goldberg spoke to people directly interviewed them and has agreed not to identify them in the story Jeffrey. Goldberg, will be here with me to talk about that in just a moment. His initial story has now been confirmed in part or in its entirety by reporters at. All okay. Remarkably a correspondent at Fox News included in that lineup whom trump promptly called on the network to fire. Some of those corroborating stories included even more damning details about the president like this one from the Washington Post quote the president told senior advisors that he didn't understand why the US government plays such value on finding soldiers missing in action because they had performed poorly and gotten caught and deserve what they got and this from the New York Times people familiar Mr Trump's private conversations saying he has long scorned those who served in Vietnam as being too dumb to have gotten out of it as he did through medical diagnosis of bone spurs in his heels. Back in two thousand, nineteen trump's former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen testified the trump admitted to faking those bonds first telling cone quote you think I'm stupid I wasn't going to Vietnam. There's even more evidence that trump view soldiers at stupid or suckers Mary trump the president's knees wrote in a recent book that trump and threatened to disown his eldest son if don Jr. joined the military. She also says that her own Father Fred trump junior was mocked by donald trump because he fred trump junior decided to join the US air. National. Guard quote my father was frequently ridiculed for his career choices and disparaged for serving our country by both his father and by his brother Donald. Then, there's the fact that pretty much none of trump's top military officials past and present are backing the president up. I mean you really can't find anyone who's stepping forward to defend his character save he would never say anything like that they aren't disputing the story instead that's been left talking heads and former flax and loyalists. That's maybe not a huge surprise because trump allegedly said about all US servicemembers, hues very closely to what he said back in two thousand fifteen about one particular veteran Senator John McCain. War here or euro he's a war hero years he's a war hero presumes captured. I like people that weren't captured. Okay I hate to. John. McCain was prisoner of war in Vietnam for five years host. Donald Trump avoided that war had a different experience in an interview in the nineties. He characterized his efforts to avoid transmitted diseases while sleeping with numerous women as quote, my personal Vietnam. An. Event with Union members today Joe Biden lambasted the president's comments an invoked zone Sun Beau who served in Iraq and then died from a brain tumor in two thousand fifteen. Those of served. Risk, their lives even gave their lives, our nation losers suckers. He's our heroes. Tell you something. My Bowl wasn't loser. For A sucker if that's I, talk about our veterans, you have no business being president of the United States of America. What's being entered into the record here to take a step back and look at all the evidence about Donald Trump. Shocking. Morally offensive. It's not surprising. It's about what we have come to expect. But. One big question that keeps pulling on my shoulders. Why are we learning about this now? What does it mean that we are? For more on that and the fallout from his incredible reporting joined by Jeffrey Goldberg He's the Editor in chief of the Atlantic and I jeff, maybe I start a little bit with. The reaction to this story from the White House you. There are stories that come out all the time about the president that are fairly scandalous incredibly scandalous. And one time they said it's fake news and they swatted away or the new cycle moved on, they do seem particularly freaked out. About this reporting. An particularly intent on attacking it what what is your sort of reading of the last three or four days of their reaction? Well he's a good question. First thing I would say is that. This is not an attack on these are not reports of an attack on site immigrants or black people or or something like that we expect from Donald Trump and something that his base might actually help him with his base. This could hurt him with his with his base You know the the the second thing is I. Think there's a lot of. Nervousness in the White House and again I won't I'm not commenting on anything having to do with my sourcing or other reporter's saw sourcing Fox. Washington Post whatever. I'm you know there's a there's a deep hostility and mistrust in the White House of. Current and former generals people who lead the military. We saw that today Donald Trump did something that I. I've never seen before he attacked his own a service chiefs. He attacked his own leaders of the Armed Forces on call? Them. I mean, even in the even in this sort of an Tasma, we are twenty twenty race that's still something but I think it has to do with the fact that This is the kind of accusation that sounds believable in also goes directly to. A core constituency that Donald trump obviously needs to Keep energized come November. Yeah we we should note that there's there's been polling of of active duty servicemembers in which he's he's underwater with them There's been an interesting sort of officer enlisted split, but he's been losing ground even with a enlisted members. He's gone for a net positive nine points and Net net net negative twelve points. You can see that there. That's the latest military times pulling. You just mentioned what he said today was pretty remarkable. Briefly, sort of like channeling kind of like left anti-imperialism vis-a-vis his own service chiefs although it's completely like made up and fabricated because he. In the next breath, he's constantly bragging about how big the Pentagon budget is and how Raytheon is making off like a bandit. So but I wanNA play that clip just to get your response to it take a listen to what he said. I'm not saying that military in love with me to soldiers are the top people in the Pentagon probably aren't because they want to do nothing but fight wars so that all of those wonderful companies that make the bombs and make the planes and everything else they. Happy. But we're getting out of the endless wars you know how we're doing. But here's the thing Jeff. They're not this drives me insane the where we have expanded our footprint, we've expanded bombings all the theaters, and this is an absolute con-. This idea that the Great Antiwar Donald Trump has some revolt on his hands on the generals. As, you will know the generals are usually more hesitant to go to war than not usually often more has to go to war than than civilian leaders for some obvious reasons. No, this was remarkable i. mean he sort of channeling. Start Sixty Bob Dylan lyrics here I pointed out on a show media today it's It's quite remarkable given that tomorrow there's a pretty good chance that he'll brag about how much money he's spending on military hardware, and of course, as you know, he's deeply transactional in love it when when foreign countries by our military equipment. So if you're looking for consistency in that particular clip, you're you're looking forward it in the wrong place it doesn't make sense in any kind of traditional understanding of of politics.

Fox News confirms Trump mocked US troops as ‘suckers’; Biden calls him a disgrace

"Reporter confirmed some parts of that Atlantic story that says President Donald Trump called dead United States soldiers, suckers and losers for getting killed. President calling on Fox to fire that reporter, Fox News. National Security correspondent Jennifer Griffin said she had confirmed trumpet disparities. Veterans also did not want to honor the dead of the US cemetery in France and also she reported that he did not want to lower flags after the death of Senator John McCain. Trump spoke with reporters in Maryland yesterday. Somebody said they say, I said race Frankly, it's a disgrace to your profession. Late Last night, Trump attacked Griffin on Twitter called for her to be fired. He also wrote that Fox News is gone. Republican representative Adam Kinzinger, not siding with Trump, the Illinois congressman defending Griffin, calling her fair and I'm afraid on the other side of the aisle, no surprise Democrats using the report in the Atlantic to their advantage. Trump is long considered himself a champion of the armed forces, his opponents now using his alleged words against him, former vice president president candidate Joe Biden. Calling Trump's reported comments. Biden's words here Disgusting, sick, deplorable UN American and absolutely damnable. Recent Military Times Poll shows support for Trump slipping The poll among active duty servicemen and women showing 49.9% of active duty troops have an unfavourable view of the president, while only 38% had a favorable view. A poll also asked the question. If the presidential election were to be held today, who would you vote for 41.3%? Said Biden, but only 37.4%, said Donald Trump To trouble for a

Trump panned over reports he called US war dead 'losers'

"William Branham reports on the fallout intensifying today over an article that alleges President Trump made disparaging remarks about U. S troops. It's a fake story, and it's a disgrace that they're allowed to do it. President Trump is firing back after a report in the Atlantic magazine and later confirmed by multiple news organizations, said the president several times called fallen American servicemembers, losers and suckers in the Oval Office today, the president again flatly denied ever making the comments. And instead touted military spending under his administration. There's nobody that considers the military and especially people that have given their lives in the military to be the heroes. Who the heck does he think he is his Democratic opponent, former vice President Joe Biden, whose own son, Beau, served in Iraq. Called the reported comments deplorable. But my son volunteered, enjoying the United States military as the attorney general. I went to Iraq for a year. Won the Bronze Star. Another commendations. He wasn't a sucker secretary of state Mike Pompeo, who was on a 2018 trip to Paris when the president allegedly made some of these comments. Told Fox News. He doesn't remember them have never heard the president used the language. Those certainly has said in that article. But going back to his 2016 campaign, Mr Trump has had a complicated relationship with the military theme. He's often praised those with military experience and has had many working with him in the White House. But other times he's questioned their service. Like his widely criticized comments about Senator John McCain, who was tortured and imprisoned for more than five years during the Vietnam War, a war hero. I like people that weren't captured President Trump overwhelmingly one among veterans in 2016, But since then, his approval rating among members of the military has dropped to 38% in a new poll from Military times. With two months until Election Day. Mr Biden has a four point advantage with thes voters.

E. Casey Foundation. It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Noelle King and I'm Steve Inskeep. Good morning protests and street violence in this country compel us to follow a few differing narratives. One narrative is the simple statement of facts. Protests against police. Violence and protests on the other side have triggered violence in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and Portland, Oregon. In Portland over the weekend. Pickup truck drivers flying trump flags clashed with protesters. Somebody opened fire. Ah, person was killed and a far right group in Portland claims the man killed was a friend of theirs. We will keep seeking fax and keep in mind how much we do not yet know in this developing story. That's one narrative. Then there's the narrative of the presidential politics, which are not necessarily related to the fax NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson is here to discuss this. Hey there, Mara. Hi, Steve. So this is a big deal for both main presidential candidates. How does President Trump view the violence? I think he is thinks the violence will help him underscore his law and order message that really dominated last week's Republican convention. You heard speaker after speaker say, quote You won't be safe in Joe Biden's America. The president has been focusing on the protests rather than on the shooting of a black man that sparked them in Kenosha. He was very active on Twitter yesterday, close to 90 tweets. After a person was fatally shot in Portland. He tweeted big backlash going on in Portland. He liked to tweet supporting Kyle Riton house That's the 17 year old Trump supporter who's been charged with two homicides in Kenosha. He's been retweeting approval, Lee Approvingly about the caravan of Trump supporters heading into Portland, calling Black lives matter Supporters thugs. Clearly the president thinks this place to his advantage. But with that said, You said that slogan was you won't be safe in Joe Biden's America. But this is all happening in Donald Trump's America. Trump is is president. How does he argue that he's not responsible but would somehow make it better? Right? Well, this is a tough argument. He's showing pictures of violence that are happening on his watch and saying This is what would happen if Biden was president. Hey, says two contradictory things. I alone can fix it and it's not my responsibility. His campaign makes the point that these air Democrat run cities. Mark Meadows, the White House chief of staff, explained it in a very us versus them way yesterday on meet the press. Most of Donald Trump's America is peaceful. It is a a Democrat led city important that we're talking about this morning who just yesterday denied help once again from the federal government. So there you have it. You have Donald Trump's America and you have another America. But it is true. On Friday, Portland's mayor said no, thanks to Trump's offered to send in federal law enforcement agents, he said, Quote When you sent the feds to Portland last month, you made the situation far worse. OK, so the president is running against Joe by the nominee of the Democratic Party, the Democratic Party. What might this How might this affect the presidential race? We don't know. Yet The some polls show the race tightening, which both Democrats and Republicans expected to happen. Regardless of these events, the Trump campaign clearly thinks this works for them. They think people are turning on this issue carrying more about the riots than about racial justice. There are some polls showing support for black lives matter dropping. And Kellyanne Conway, the president's adviser, said the other day that the more chaos and anarchy and violence there is the better. The clearer the choice will be for the law and order candidate. But Biden is pushing back pretty forcefully. He's blaming Trump for fanning the flames of hate and division. He's hoping that when suburban voters look at this violence and chaos, theywill see Trump as.

S. Air Force starts effort to buy a flying car it's a Jetsons kind of story they're looking for something called agility prime what do you know about this general and and are we going to see flying cars anytime soon well he was in effort to basically initiate a variety of efforts I had to look at how we might be able to supplement the capabilities that are provided by the V. twenty two which is the vertical lift aircraft in intense stimulate industry to look at different and new technologies to bring those kinds of capabilities where you can take off and small tiny areas and not have to rely on thousand foot multiple thousand foot runway so we'll see what how is that how it turns out but again it's a stimulus or not he has to get a new ideas out there and to get something concrete they can provide the kind of vertical lift capability in small spaces and do it let's say within a year that you know general once you get the vertical left the biggest hit on the strategic triad that is part of the Air Force is that you need runways and runways can be targeted once you've got a vertical lift and develop the technology to the point like the osprey then all of the strategic deterrent the airforce carries can be deployed anywhere in the world right well that's true although you I would say we haven't seen the end of the runway it's important to understand that they're over eighteen holes and runaways with over six thousand feet a paid service around the world so yeah you're you can't move but guess what there are a lot of them but your point is very valid one in that it would significantly con complicate any adversary he we're attacking six bases so if it is one of the technologies we need to continue to explore did expand the capabilities of the U. S. Air Force now couple questions that are there about politics and defense general debt to DARPA came up in the debate the Democrats had on Tuesday night president binder right president Biden attempted to say he ran dark but I thought are you going up here could you tell people what DARPA is this they have an idea what what the Democrats are talking about here yeah sure that darkness is an acronym that stands for defense advanced research projects agency it is a an arm of the department of defense in its focus is to look at no near term technologies but future technologies into see how they might be able to bring or research new and innovative ideas and then transition them to reality to provide it bans capability as rapidly as soon as possible some of the capabilities that his a ball out of their defense advanced research projects agency in the past are things like the internet you know contrary to al gore's statement that he invented the internet he didn't the defense advanced research projects agency did back in the late eighties so he that's just one example that I think everyone would be

in these delivering it with such passion anyway got a lot to get to I'm a couple things you gotta know here all I forgot to mention you know Nancy Pelosi is giving illegal immigrants tips on how to evade ice agents which is kind of a new low but sanctuary cities and states kind of do the same thing as your aiding and abetting in criminal activity but anyway in a press conference earlier today a after the real speaker she speaker in name only because he'll Cortez ripped there for pretty much being racist in going after only women of color anyway press conference earlier today pelo see actually told illegal immigrants they don't need to answer the door if ice comes knocking because a deportation warrant is not the same as a search warrant I mean these are supposed to be lawmakers if you don't like the law you don't like the constitution it just can't make it up as you go that's not how a civil society a constitutional Republic actually works but I am sure that that's just new new stars you probably doesn't even know anyway so if we do have other sort of on the sidelines we have some other data that has come in for crazy creepy uncle Joe remember Biden and Obama left and we had thirteen million more Americans on food stamps eight million more poverty the worst recovery since the forties Los labor participation rate since the seventies more debt than all forty three presidents and vice presidents before them combined okay and they dropped a hundred and fifty billion dollars these geniuses known as Biden Obama they a hundred and fifty billion dollars in cash in other currencies on the tarmac of our low Hey Ron for Muller's that chant death to America you know this could they convert or die leaders of more are ran that it's been sewing proxy wars terrorism funding terrorism for all these years out that's brilliant move on the part of be sleepy crazy uncle Joe and Obama by the way military pull out by the military time shows veterans yeah they overwhelmingly approve of the president that's not an appeaser wow and by the way is a near record in that particular poll and on top of it yeah what is helping the people that are doing the best heritage foundation puts out a study in with the new unemployment numbers that came out two hundred twenty four thousand jobs created in June unexpected of course like every other month now that we're headed toward seven million new jobs under Donald Trump and seven million fewer people on on food stamps on on on the unemployment lines and course now we know too from the census that in fact is seven point five million jobs on filled right now in the country but just pointing it out that the people that benefited the most out of this climb and the economy of Donald Trump when you actually look for it it is quote the US economy offers new opportunities to people who have historically been left behind the left continues to push their radical agenda against American values the good news is there is a solution average wages have grown above three percent now for ten straight months twice as fast as inflation since the tax cuts the largest in history by Donald Trump and twenty seventeen wage growth for the poorest twenty five percent of Americans has now reached a post recession high of four point four percent I don't forget ten percent of American taxpayers pay seventy percent of the income tax bill twenty percent over ninety percent the bottom fifty percent of wage earners pay no federal income taxes done nothing not a penny so we have full and complete redistribution now the question is as the Democrats now begin to lay out their policies without specifics and without pause and all of them support illegal immigrants yeah health care you are paying for it and everything in between now they're eating a betting and sanctuary cities states and everything else and your creepy uncle Joe now given a foreign policy speech he's the guy that helped the mullahs in Iran and you got booted judge proposing a hundred billion dollars in a plan to counter racial inequality Hey you got camallo Harris who says we're all going to be on the Medicare for all and no private insurance how to obamacare keep your doctor planned and save money work out it didn't end the Blasi com read the blouse hills pledging to pay female athletes equally to men I didn't know that the city's mayor of New York was responsible for paying athletes for professional teams I actually thought the free market determine what eighteen chooses to pay or not pay somebody anyway here to look at the latest polls where we are in this twenty twenty election John McLaughlin Matt territory are with us welcome back both you and you're doing a great job in retirement mad as I can tell is your Iggy come on every time we ask you and you always have some good recent data share but you're not working we'll just pretend you're telling the truth on that but at least I'm in Atlanta today shop all right well good for you right so here is there is the main question if you're a couple the new green deal if you could add that to elicit legal immigrants health care being paid for and everything in between the trump economy do these polls even mean a single thing to you absolutely not I think right now we're in this time where holding these various horse races between the various democratic candidates are equipped with the Democrats on president are relatively meaningless me we saw how quickly being shipped it just from the debate where camallo Harris managed to land that that blow to fight and everything moves very quickly because of course the media group get in that direction now we're seeing some of a little bit of districting back Biden's up by eleven points on there which group of politics none of this really matters right now but what does matter Sean and I think it's very important is that the overall threats to the Democratic Party to the left which is very obvious from that debate and all the fallout I think that's assisting the president even more in his approval ratings if you recall about three weeks ago when we were on here I said I felt like you might got that that that the present it turned the corner and that is approval ratings were moving out and we seen that happen really excel right after that after that do you see do you see any body in your view John McLaughlin and I had this conversation when I was on vacation last week with the number of people do you see Donald Trump losing any of the vote from twenty sixteen and do you think with record low unemployment for the demographic such as African Americans Hispanic Americans Asian Americans women in the U. work force and youth unemployment do you see that he has the potential of gaining new voters absolutely I mean a remastered you back in twenty sixteen when the when you send Donald Trump the candidate asked me how we're going to win I said we were going to excite new voters and we're going to nine million new voters and they had for record historic turn alarms are nine million and we're able to defy the polls because report on the waters you can have the same effect now and we had sixty three million voters come out and support him for president back in twenty sixteen the strategy this time is very clear that we have been as mad as pointed out we've been grinding up moving up the president's job approval so even these biased polls like if you go on the real clear politics average you'll see all the folders they'll have an average of forty five for job approval and the liberals are freaking out because you'll have the washer posting we've got forty seven percent job approval and the the other ones but they're registered voters so that's a no that's Universitario or nine people you'll have instead of a hundred thirty nine million people like we had twenty sixteen alive under over arm forty maybe our fifty million people come out so the president is actually broadening his base as well as you see him losing all the people that voted Fuhrman twenty sixteen let's focus on three states in particular because I think it'll make all the difference Pennsylvania Wisconsin and Michigan of course North Carolina Ohio Florida they always matter but in those three states you see anybody that can take those states back for the Democrats this group because it mattered and your point out there going last I mean the best thing we had was that it was the last series of democratic debates I mean the top campaign I wanted to run them as an infomercial and just keep moving them to one people play I mean that that that the one question where where the moderator asked the Democrats would you know do you support our free healthcare for illegal immigrants and they all raise their hands I mean there's people out there in those states are yours around Pennsylvania Michigan Wisconsin they can't afford their own healthcare and now you wanted them to pay for somebody who's here legally I mean the Democrat party is really going that's the second part of our strategy is what the cost on the air now let him know when they're taking a big hall let him dig it I do think that that they are now locked into these positions that are so out of the mainstream at tower he how big an impact well I think it's a huge impact and and Johns point I mean and I say the president's looking at someone like Jon fast because he gets it this has to do with why and why are you sucking up to John I don't have a second to John anymore I just don't know because you're retired just like I'm retired keep going right so you I did like it at at but but that having been said about turnout and I think what's going to happen John and that there's been one talked about this before I think that not only are you going to see an increase in intensity it turn out press I think you're going to see that's a dress further to the west and I think that's inevitable with this Democratic Party dispatch you're going to see states that John and I are not even talking about right now that will dress more towards president trump I think again this is our necks and the government type election scenario I will put one little Chevy out there the only states that I'm concerned about that demographically challenge states of which one of which I meant today which is George because a state like this has seen a ship that you're in and just based on how people both demographically historically Cobb county which of course in our day Sean when you're not thinking great saying cop was seventy percent Republican that was about sixty five to seventy percent Republican it is likely to be a democratic county the snap next go around which gives you some idea of the change and that is that is a dramatic shift and I was there when I was there when the state of Georgia when blue to red so I mean you're you saw the whole thing so now is that most people expect the well the majority of the of the legislative delegation which of the core of years ago as a Republican is now Democrats in my top yeah yeah right I got a week I got to take a break more with Matt Tauri and John McLaughlin our posters are a lot more coming up today busy news day eight hundred.

You know, I'm forty nine now at the time I was in my mid forties. You know, I'd I'd blown my ankle. I broke my leg at blown my knee at broke back. You know, multiple herniated did as a rip my shoulder out on target, and I've fallen off walls and roofs and loss most hearing in one of my years, and you know, it's TBI's and so's one of those things like, you know, just I don't I don't get up quite as fast as I used to. And when I fold down mad at its it just keeps hurting the next day and the next day. So yeah, it was definitely one of those times. It was like I'm going to try something else. That's cool that you recognize that you're ready to leave on your own terms. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, and it was also one of those things, you know, being a dent add it was men. I wanna see my family wanna, you know, wanna go home at night. And and I wanna look at. It's like I wanna I wanna try and retire nomin inventor of multiple patents. You know?

Be there'd be three or four americ- in advisors, and we'd have one to two hundred Afghans that we would be lead training advising. So we're very small very very small elements that were running with these guys. So we'd run them through training during the days, we'd recruit these guys outta mountains run through condense training cycle. And then about fourteen hundred hours target pack. It's start coming in with. Okay. When going we'd kick into the the planning process, and then as soon as it started getting dark, it was like, okay, get your rifles. And we'd go hit targets with these guys. So one night, we're we're going after target that had some a qh BT's in it, and we got compromised, and so the guy started shooting, you know, he had Naik's started shooting through the through the gate hit two of my Afghan commandos in the legs.

Disability say that I have to have that to continue much government career. So yeah, I spent twenty four years of my life, not counting military. And then on top of that to make matters. Even I applied for police insecurity at the TSA. They tried to do everything they could put me on the black ball list. So well that that certainly is not a pleasant circumstance that other happy customer right there Spencer. It's look the the system needs to be addressed. I it's just something that it's a taboo thing. We don't talk about it. The government has to do better for people does. And we know that a government glider can't drop us up tire shooting. Playboy playmate holding champagne and caviar. Why we suck up sunshine on an awesome poco beach. Can you know, his short can devise a fair system to employees, and and to the labor force and listen to people who really wants to rally about a more fair system. But the only thing is they can't get out and rally because they have to be at work. Yeah. Anyway, we can only say to you John Paul good luck. And if George Ringo's listening, maybe they'll be a happier tale to to pass along from you one eight six six five haute, JIMBO one eight six six five five four six two six Spitzer Boris off our guest, oh meetings. You do get into the notion of meetings because of course, no one can manage effectively without meetings to make sure that you manage effectively, I've never fully understood. How that works. Yeah. I mean, it's overkill you have meetings about meetings. I have literally I literally have had a meeting about meetings. Some people may think that Spencer's joking. I've been to that meeting. Oh, and I've been to many of those you know, you gotta be there. You don't have a choice as as an employee, but everyone's drifted off into their own little fog, and no one's really listening and the overall wondering thinking about lunch and thinking about other things because we realize it's a few tile mission to be there. And it's you know, it's just a lot of times managers needs to prove that they're managing. So, you know, they're having meetings to say, yeah, we all got together. And so they can tell their managers. Everybody has the boss in this chain, and that's hierarchy. So a lot of wasted time. Yeah. It always seemed to be that that was the case. And I I don't know that this is true in every line of work, but I have seen a few lines of work in which there was an excessive amount of middle management. It just really wasn't necessary in my view, and these were people who were getting pretty good paychecks. In far as I'm concerned. They seriously got in the way in many cases of the direction that was planned by the guy in charge or gal. And and the people down below taking me orders. And I certainly don't fault every middle manager in this way. But I have seen circumstances to which there were too many of them too, many of them, and yeah, a lot of them are not even as qualified as those. They are managing the only talked about frustrating. While you're a highly productive highly independent highly creative highly capable and you're being managed by someone who is not highly any of it. Let alone lonely any of it because it's a very frustrating experience. So you know, it's it's a shame. There's there's there's a lot of them out there. And you know, that's why the word boss b o s s is one of the filthiest. Four letter words in the English line. All right, Brian in Ozark, Missouri joins us next on the Bohannon show with Spencer Borisov. Hello, brian. All right. I'll tell you. What what he just said is right? I've worked for guys thought they knew it all. You know, you had ten years or fifteen years experience on. And you're trying to explain to them. You're making a mistake your wall because they know better. Well, there is a lot of that out there. Now, I have known frankly, and I had been blessed with quite a few bosses who will listen, and we'll even say, you're right. That's a great point. And they won't even try to take credit for that. I've had some really great bosses, but but Brian's got a real point. I think Spencer some bosses boy, they are so insecure, and in some cases, justifiably so that you cannot offer them even constructive criticism. Yeah. Absolutely. I mean, I'm what it is like the boss subordinate relationship. So their home mentality is I'm up here. You're down there. You know, you listen to me, and that's their mentality, and that's the breakout. And that's why so many people are unhappy aside from rush hour an alarm clock. So when you get in the environment, they got a guy who doesn't even know as much as you you're out in the field. He doesn't know the market like you ju and he's telling you to sell this much for that much or whatever line you're in treating it with a subordinate painful existence. Yeah. Amen to that. All right. More thoughts about this whole notion that works sucks. I'm Jim Bohannon back in just a moment. Your source for official weather information on NewsRadio. Katie. Hello. I'm Trojan, man. Today. I'd like to talk about mixing it up now. And then. A wise man once said variety is the spice of life.

"Your alternate. I'm Ed Torrence, news ninety six point five WDBO. Recent military times poll said that he had over eighty four percent approval rating close to ninety percent among the officers in contrast that with about forty five percent for the president. So Maddison another world in terms of his trust in in reverence within the military. So this is really reverberating around the active duty and veterans community in a very very powerful way to very very precarious unimpressed. Yeah. So I actually believe general keen said to us earlier that he would consider because he turned down the secretary of defense job. I would not be if they ask him again, even though he told Martha he won't do it. I bet she does it. Great guests, and you're worried about your guests. He's been so definitive on this. And we know all of us who have talked to them as you mentioned. We all know that he's been approached and really really courted by this president for any number of really high-profile important tradition. And he seems pretty dug in that he's not gonna do it. I mean, he, you know, the general is a smart principled, so experienced. I mean, he would be such a huge asset to any administration. But I think he has his reasons I mean, he sees the chaos he she's the unsettled massive the situation, and when you see somebody who is like secretary Mattis not be able to convince the president on something that's critical of Syria or Afghanistan. I'm not sure why you'd want to walk into that. Lastly on when it comes to the border, and it comes to cure security Nielsen, I hope she doesn't leave. I think she's doing a great job. You I've interviewed him a number timespan. She's steely she knows what he wants. He doesn't do this for the money. She's still short-staffed. I know the president's been critical. Our by Hopi leaves her Louis congressman Luis Gutierrez just wanting to rant on the president. I want you to hear a little of this exchange actually goes for six minutes. I want you to hear the leaps and bounds it he took to go after Kirsten Nielsen who was sitting on a table right in front of cut forty one. There's one thing that this administration done better than any other administration American history. And that is lie. It is repugnant to me an astonishing to me that during Christmas time in which we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ Jesus Christ who had to flee or his life. With Mary and Joseph. Thank god. There wasn't a wall that stopped him from seeking refuge in Egypt. Thank god. That wall wasn't there. And thank God. There wasn't administration like this or he would have to have perished. Yeah. That's good advice so cures to Nielsen finally gets a chance to talk to after a six minute. Ran cut forty-three was I think I said in the hearing first of all calling me a liar fighting words, it's not appropriate. It's stop professionals accurate. So I think my whole exchange on I found to be offensive mostly offensive on behalf of again, we have two hundred and forty thousand men and women who get up everyday to enforce the law. The law says to come here illegally, it's a crime. That's what we did. We tried to enforce the law and for Nielsen when she started speaking, he got up and left. So I thought this was time to respect women and you better not talk to. I mean, come on. What's your take on this? And what about us analogy of Jesus? See I is a person of faith where that really is the most important thing in my life above any of the Kuku crazy, Washington stuff or anything else. I mean, I that I find really difficult when someone from the left or the right or anywhere else wants to use it as a bludgeoning tool for somebody and to do so inaccurately, I find that very offensive, and you know, the even talked through the well what this family Mary Joseph and Jesus was coming to our border. And she says it's exactly the kind of family. We would let in. I mean, the people who need a silence she's under a policies, they actually would have made it through. But the fact that he went on for so long, and it was so vitriolic and then left before, you know, during her response when she was attempting to respond. I think shows you everything you need to know about what his remarks were all about. That's why he's retiring shanty Avandia who's on tonight. All I know is at this point. It's going to be two hours because we will take you through the shutdown. If it happened. We'll stay on an extra hour past midnight eastern to one AM because that's how we will. We are here for you. And I'm not even going to charge you for the extra seconds tonight. That tastic you are in a holiday mood bad for Shannon bream. She's been saying if this is a shutdown. I remember going to celebrate Christmas, and it's happening. Thanks, but you're your show is more needed than ever. So please don't run a repeat ever. We won't. We'll see you tonight. Okay. Go get him, Shannon bream. Thanks your calls next. Brian kilmeade. Alert from the state security triple team traffic center, avoid the turnpike.

"Leo, Shane deputy, editor deputy editor the military times. Congressman I I wanted to get your response to the president's attacks on Admiral mcraven. First of all, the president regularly derides military officers many of whom have spent long careers in the military when they retire. They provide objective assessments of national security in the president's conduct or misconduct. And then he throws him under the bus. But in this case, not only belittles the reputation of Admiral mcraven, but the entire special operation community, the intelligence community the State Department community when he suggested that the under the admiral's leadership that we didn't move out with do deliberate speed in tracking down and eliminating Osama bin Laden that is an insult to the hundreds of thousands of men and women who worked on that operation. It's time consuming. It's difficult. It's tedious. And when you do it you have to get it. Right. The president has no understanding of what he's asking our military to do and that criticism yesterday. Is a reflection of that lack of understanding empathy? N even sympathy for our men and women who serve Leo I'm curious about the euro reporting indicates about this sort of sentiment around this troop deployment. I mean. This is a lot of people on the outside. So I was just dump. It's fifty eight one hundred active duty servicemembers really do have to go down there who really do have to lay out concertina wire and sleep in warehouses. What is the sentiment been like a folks experiencing that or or sort of Jason to it? We really haven't had much response from the folks down there yet because it's really managed how much interaction we had with them. But a lot of concern among the military about this deployment. And just what it what it means. These are active duty folks who are in a situation, they usually wouldn't be in on the border doing duty while guardsmen done before it's really unusual for the active duty force to see that. So a lot in the military looking business saying it feels like it could be stunned. It feels like maybe it's misguided. They're not sure how to deal with it. Now with the reports that may be ending it feels like. Was was her point of this. The secretary Mattis went down visit and talk to troops just a just a couple of weeks ago and the questions he got were are we putting up this barb wire for no reason, how long are we going to stay is there a point to our mission? And he told them look just do what you're told look at the job heavy. Yeah. One of the questions, you are we gonna have to take this concertina wire down that we just put up which was a pretty pretty indicative one congressman bunch of things that that presidents particularly in wartime, which it continues to be now for seventeen years long as a war in the history of the Republic. There's certain things they do as sort of just displays symbolic displays of gratitude appreciation honor going to Arlington cemetery. Visiting deployed troops overseas in the field that this president has shooed. How important do you think? That is look I think it's really important soldiers. Don't wake up every day in Afghanistan wondering when the president is going to visit. But when. You spend two years not visiting any soldier in any combat zone or theater of operation. It sends a signal. Remember, we've increased the troop strength in Afghanistan under the Trump administration. We hear through his his team that he doesn't believe in the mission Afghantistan, and as a result he doesn't visit the soldiers. I mean, you're sending a bed signal, and it's demoralizing for soldiers and their families, their one point three million men and women who are in certain uniform, the president calls them my military, but he doesn't understand that behind every one of them. There's a family they've got asked perations they've made sacrifices. They're separated. This is they love our country, but to him it's just one one point three my military that he fails to understand he's indifferent to the culture. He lacks understanding of what motivates me. Men and women in uniform to serve and we've seen it time and time again and on full display this week to the.

"For any nominee to any senate confirmable position it's never a good idea to lie to a senator he'll be voting on whether or not to confirm you that's usually fatal if you get caught lying to one of these senators on veterans issues maybe even more crucial than for other areas leo shane points out the military times tonight not only nominees tend to get confirmed by overwhelming numbers va nominees always get confirmed unanimously there have been precisely zero no votes against nominees to the veterans administration out of the senate in the past thirty years that's because there is a robust tradition of bipartisan consensus on veterans issues on this as an issue of policy but if we're being honest that zero votes record for thirty years is also because the senators who work on veterans issues fully expect that they will be consulted ahead of time about who is getting put up for important jobs at the va they expect no surprises they expect consensus picks they expect no controversy there was apparently no consultation with the veterans committees in congress about ronnie jackson there was apparently no vetting and no interview for the job either there is now bipartisan concern about his experience and what's emerged in his background since the rubber hit the road on this nomination frankly there's also now one more chapter ready to go for the book that will eventually be written based on this administration about what can possibly go wrong when you nominate someone for a big gigantic high profile important job without ever checking their background.

"Oh during president donald trump's first months in office the principle of civilian leadership of the us military has been challenged by the pattern of delegating the management of military operations to the pentagon having former generals as advisers and cabinet officers it's a change in approach from the era of barack obama who insisted on managing military matters in many cases out of the white house andrew grown praise senior editor and pentagon bureau chief for military times civilian leadership is not threatened he says that there is caution that these new autonomy might encourage some impulses within the pentagon that need to be controlled what you're seeing from president trump is that he made very clear he's willing to defer a majority of the decisionmaking to secretary mattis and to his generals and admirals and certainly inside the pentagon and threw out the military throughout the combat and commands and that does come with a bit of relief but i think it also comes with a sense of caution certainly the bush administration even the way the obama administration came to do business became very tightly controlling of individual decisions super cautious about not wanting to present a haphazard use of military power and so now you find that the generals and admirals are really walking a tight rope so to speak the strategies that they're looking at in places like afghanistan iraq syria you you could even zoom out and say you know with with russia and north korea these decisions are all being made keeping in mind that for all intents and purposes they're working for a new boss and most certainly their new boss is watching how they do business and so to some degree i think they feel as though there on a bit.
