Rep. Mike Waltz on 'Stopping the Bleed' in the Armed Services
"I had though market and look at this goes, again, I'm dealing with recruitment and, you know, in the chaplain court, we're dealing with recruitment all over this and issues here. And we've seen it go with the struggles here, especially with who can get in and how age and everything else. But one of the issues that seems to be coming up is that you mentioned 25,000 short. That doesn't account for what has happened when we had those that we lost due to mandates or leaving and things like that. So especially just so you set the 25 here, you are already in a whole in many of these units that are not accounted for in that 25,000. You'll pass this. I would love to hear this because I hear this a lot from folks. I just want your sort of give your take on it. Everybody, a lot of people in the military. It's mixed. You had the mixed opinion of the NDAA, where they said, okay, no more vaccine mandate. And you had, you know, 98% of the military said, wait, we've already been forced to take this. We get it. But then at the same point, it made no provision at all for those who had been put in IR or others to our career issues. What are you hearing now? You're going to be in charge radius. What are you hearing now? The next steps. Well, first things first, you know, I mean, we negotiated and I give Kevin McCarthy a lot of credit. He took it to the president in a very forceful way and said, we're not going to get a defense bill. We're not going to get any spending bills until we drop the vaccine mandate. Because the mill on top of the 25,000 we fell short, the National Guard and reserves were on the verge of discharging another 20,000. So first we had to stop the bleeding. And save those 20,000 from being discharged and we dropped the vaccine mandate in the last defense Bill, but also in there, Doug was a mandate for The Pentagon to come back to us in the armed services committee and tell us what it's going to take to make people home. And it's not just back pay or drill pay, but it also, I mean, there are service members who didn't get to go to the schools that they needed. Oh yeah, required for promotion. They haven't gone to certain training. So now they've fallen out of certification, whether that's pilots or medics or cyber warriors. They were expelled from deployments. Or held back from deployment. So it is going to be a much more complicated issue. And
"ndaa" Discussed on Simply Bitcoin
"So Bitcoin is hope. Bitcoin is that shining light, and of course the powers that be are not going to endorse it. But if they really wanted to instill hope, then they would endorse Bitcoin, they would try to get Bitcoin into people's hands. They were tell people to take Bitcoin into self custody because Bitcoin does offer that hope. And I only saying this because it's done it to me. It's done it to my friend. I continuously see this happen to new bitcoiners. And this is what's happening, man. This is why I'm always going so hard in the culture about Bitcoin changing like you're very DNA. Your perspective on the world. And we're going to see this phenomenon play out, but rest and we do have a couple more minutes. So jump into your next story. Yeah, let's hit it. Let's bring it up. Let's go back in. I'm sure you guys got to look at this. So all I want to do here is show you guys this, not really going to read much here. You guys know how this stuff goes. But yet again, KYC does not provide protection to anyone, but makes everyone vulnerable. How are people hacked to begin with? By data and information collected by those demanding and forced to use KYC themselves for them and their customers and it makes everyone less secure. KYC doesn't protect consumers. It doesn't protect anyone. It's a surveillance tool, and it violates all of our Fourth Amendment protections. So let's go ahead. What is the Fourth Amendment? The right of the people to be secure in their persons houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures. It shall not be violated and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause supported by oath of affirmation and particularly describing the place to be searched and where the person or things to be seized. So KYC in itself is unconstitutional. The Patriot Act is unconstitutional. The NDAA is unconstitutional, but what's interesting about that is they were all bipartisan bills and they all have bipartisan support.

"Most important thing for you and for the technology you choose to employ. Remember technology is not good or bad. It's how we as individuals as companies as organizations choose to utilize it. Like a lot of things. I mean, it's always about the user. So the user and abuser and they're always about the money, so we have to be careful about that. Yeah, listen, I mean, thank you for bringing the whole thing about the awareness and the stocking and my pleasure. We've got the security. I mean, that's important to all it was. I thought it was important. It is. As always, you know, you always bring some very important stuff. And we want that actually for our audiences, and hopefully people can take that information at least to be aware, maybe someone that they're not know, or has somebody else that might need to be aware of this, you know, you can share that information hopefully you can save their lives, you can save the information, you can save them how they and if you're using a parking system that is on the NDAA no no list, I wouldn't park there. So if you go to a parking lot and it seems like, I don't know, they might be a little out of the whack, take a look and see what parking system they're using and see if the NDAA has banned that from federal funding. If they have probably don't want to be putting your credit card in it. John, how do people when do they change? Great question. So you can just Google the NDAA and you can just Google NDAA and equipment and every single year they have new, you can just type NDAA compliance and every year, in fact, in 2020, they'll release what was going to be stopped very soon for 2022. Every year they update it. Because that controls what funding can be spent. Obviously, they don't want stuff that's going to cause a problem, right? You wouldn't want stuff in a jail or in a school or in a government institution, or if you're even a company that does work for those facilities, like a contractor, you definitely don't want that in your facility either. Well, that's the way to go. That's the way we can find it and folks. I mean, you listen, you're watching. I mean, this is important. Take a note to it. And just keep that on your favorites and you never know. Just shake before you go. That's it. I mean, it's as simple as that and hopefully you can make a difference in your life and somebody else's life. But staying away from hike conditioning because there's so many vendors and contractors saying, oh, I'll put a camera system in you for just under a $1000. And they're putting a system in that might be putting you, your family, and your business at risk. We don't want that. No survey. All right, John, so I think we're at the end of the show here. I think we're at our top of the hour with a few minutes to be over actually. Yeah, well, listen, time plasma having fun. And you know, we want to talk about kind of building and other things, but it took its own. And by the way, this is what you get with double-A fact. We started the conversation and involves and we'll get it there at the end of the hour and there's something that we're going to learn. And you know, John is unique about that. And he's going to give you something new every day. So please look out for those shows on that. Every month is live, and then they replace our pretty much all over the place. So Instagram.

"Moves Congress like a deadline, but there's no deadline like Christmas Eve. And so I'm concerned we're going to see another one week short term kick the can down the road. One of my big fears is a giant lame duck omnibus with big spending numbers coming forward. That's exactly the opposite of what we need to get this economy back on track. So Congress would take us into that a little bit of the weeds here. As I understand it, there's a difference surprise surprise between Republicans and Democrats. Republicans want more spending for defense. They don't want to increase some of the discretionary because they say that's already done in the inflation reduction act. On the other hand, the Democrats say, let's increase it on both sides. Is that the basic issue? That's one of the two big issues the other is I think everyone knows Republicans hands are going to improve dramatically come January 3rd when Republicans take away the speakers gavel from Nancy Pelosi and the House of Representatives. And so I think we really need to control this discretionary spending. We need to make sure we are strengthening our military, but the negotiations in front of us change dramatically, not only with a Christmas deadline, but the potential to really change the negotiations come January 3rd when Republicans are in control in the house. Another issue you know very well congressman is the defense authorization act. Is that on a different you need to get that done before the end of the year? I would really like to see us get that done before the end of the year. It's so important that we make sure our military is in a position of strength. We continue to see a whole host of global challenges from Russia to Iran to communist China. And so getting the NDAA across the line, that's historically one of the few bipartisan bills that gets done every year. I'd like to see us get that done as well. Congressman, you said there would be a dramatic change with the new Congress because Republicans will have majority. Maybe not quite as dramatic as a lot of Republicans thought it was going to be because it's going to be a pretty narrow majority. Give us your sense right now in the leadership race. We know Kevin McCarthy really would like it badly. It was thought that maybe it was pretty likely that it would happen. Now we've seen some challengers to him. I think ultimately, at the end of the day, on January 3rd, Kevin McCarthy is going to have the votes and will become Speaker of the House. This is a long family car trip that we're having right now. There's going to be some tough conversations in that started that car trip. But I think by the time we get to January 3rd on the floor

"Enough. Okay, let's just, you know, whatever. Or like, wow. I've always loved those. You're a liberal. Okay, really? I remember classic liberalism, which I'm sure you wouldn't recognize in a book if I pointed it at you, but, you know, that's a whole different issue. Well, let's turn our attention. I mean, I want to get one of them on top before we get going to the equal act. We got to get that thing done. I mean, there's just so much, and let's just hit that real quick and we'll move on something else. Equal act for those or not. And it's got to get done in some form. Some shape form or fashion, it's got to get done and I think that's going to be a key. Your hopes, I know you like me and we're going to be probably working on this some more together. But NDA thinks a great place for it or a CR would be a great place for it if we could get it in. I'm concerned that I'm very concerned that Republicans are going to block the ability to do a CR, especially if they take the house and definitely if they take the Senate, which means that for me in the military is problematic because again, military sort of at a standstill when you do a CR. It's just not there. And the normal stuff gets done. Where do we see what we're seeing right now with equal? Well, I think the play right now that we've been working on and you're right. There are two there are going to be a couple of different pieces of legislation. Maybe as many as four that come to the floor during the lame duck session. Two of those are not ideal places for this. The other two are. One of those is the omnibus, which or CR. And I really dug, I think you're right, I think it depends entirely on what the outcome of the election is. If Republicans take back the house, which is likely and they take the Senate, which is, I think it's less likely. I'm not saying it's unlikely it's less likely. I think we're looking at a CR that kicks government funding in February or March. But if we get an omnibus, yes, it's a place it's a place to put it because, you know, from your time in Congress and in the house, that they put all kinds of random stuff in the omnibus that sometimes has not even gone through regular order committee. They give Christmas trees a bad name, okay? Let's just be honest with it here. I remember the omnibus in 20 19, I think, or I think it was 2019 where they stuck in an exemption from the minimum wage for minor league baseball. Into the omnibus, which was that was like March 2019, I think, or 2018 or so. We were just trying to get something done. But the NDAA, and look, I understand there's some members of the Senate in the house who don't like putting non defense related legislation into NDAA. The fact of the matter is and you know this. Well, Congress has made it made it that way because of the hyper partisanship in Congress, both sides of the aisle, screaming at each other all the time, have made it to where that there are only limited opportunities to actually do some real legislating that can't be done by voice vote or unanimous consent..

Rep. Mary Miller: Freedom Caucus Wants Vaccine Mandates Repealed
"But I know the freedom caucus. You guys have been urging your fellow Republicans to reject the defense authorization bill unless it repeals this vaccine mandate, how is that effort going? Well, we'll see how it goes when it comes time to vote. But the freedom caucus is leading in so many ways where we've been for the last two years. I think you'll see we've been calling for mayorkas to be impeached over the invasion on the southern border, and then now freedom caucus is united in opposing the NDAA unless they repeal this vaccine mandate and the woke policies that are undermining our military that Democrats are putting all this woke stuff in our military and it's really I think hindering recruitment. I believe the army's recruitment, goals are at like 40% or less. And bottom line, what people want on military to be is lethal and ready if we have the horrible situation where we have to defend ourselves.

"I said, thank you so much for that little bit of because then when Joe Biden forgave ten and $20,000 student debt, everybody would be complaining that they would be taxed on that loan forgiveness. And she made that so it didn't happen very quietly, very simply. And she looked at me and she said she gave me two snaps up and then she licked her finger and put it on her rear end and went. Oh my goodness. And then she goes, she goes, it's all about planning. And I was like, oh my God, you're my hero. So that was just one of the coolest things to be able to sit and watch the president's speak, watch Nancy Pelosi. Senator Schumer speak, the president of international brotherhood of electrical workers, Boston one O three introduced the president and then to just be able to hang out with all those incredible people that day was truly, truly joyful. So that's my toast for joy. That is awesome. So that reminds me of, I got to meet Kirsten gillibrand one time and I got to talk to her. And I think her specifically for her work on the military justice improvement act work that she has done, which I know it's not passed. However, it is very meaningful to me that she is working on this and it was really interesting because this was like, this was when Hillary Clinton was running. So there's like this room full of big donors. I think I was the only woman in this room, and she just said real quick, I just want to thank you for this. It means a lot to me. And she stopped and she came and talked to me for like ten minutes and all these dudes are like, who the hell does she think she is? But it was really meaningful that I said something very specific she did. She loved talking about it. And so Kirsten gillibrand recently was trying to get the cadet act pass. I don't know if you know about this one. Yeah, yeah. So they actually slipped it into the defense. I think the defense authorization bill, something that's NDAA. Thank you. I was like, I know they slipped it into something. So now for all of the cadets that are at all of the academies. It is basically okay if you're a parent because right now what they do is they actually force people to get abortions or leave, which is crazy. And I think a lot of people don't realize, you know, when you don't have the right to make those decisions, the government can make you get an abortion just as well as they can prevent you from one.

"What I feel welcome back America. Congressman Mike Gallagher is from Wisconsin. And I'm going to blame the state of Wisconsin for the fact that the national defense authorization act has not yet come through conference and been passed because he's on the armed services committee. Now he's not a ranking member of even a subcommittee because the Republicans don't run the house. So it's not really fair to blame them, but I like to blame them anyway because of the packers fan. Congressman Gallagher, where is our NDAA? Well, it's passed the House to pass the house last week. So the next step is for we just got the Senate text because the Senate has a closed committee process. So the next step is for them to pass it for us to conference it. And then I would expect it to come to the floor after the August recess sometimes. So obviously these process doesn't move as fast as we'd like, but it is far better than the appropriations process, which oftentimes moves not at all. And we're left with a continuing resolution and that's what worries me about this. I think we could find ourselves in a situation where we don't pass the size of preparations Bill. We're in some sort of continuing resolution world. And that's obviously a very bad for the military. They can't invest in new programs when you factor in inflation. It's a particularly big cut to the military. So I've long thought that the disconnect between the authorization process and the appropriations process makes no sense and should be addressed potentially with a combination of the committees. But we are where we are. So the house has done its work. We need the Senate to do theirs and then hopefully we will have a productive conference in the Senate screw up some of our good work. Now, congressman, I want to get down to the level where a steelers fan is going to understand this. And there are two, they're enraged over the changing the Heinz field to something I can't remember name. But maybe they'll listen to this. The defense authorization I try and describe to them is the policy that will govern the Department of Defense. Whether or not your policy choices right down the level of wet ships get built at what time and what are we going to pay the troops, that depends on the appropriators during their job. Now, if Ken Calvert was in charge of the appropriations committee, it would get done. It would have been done a long time ago and it would match up pretty closely. They would combine their expertise with you. But as it is, you have to kind of wing and a prayer, right? You've got to pass a policy guideline. Some of it will take effect because it will be the law. And it will be policy that's not budget driven. The rest of it has to wait for the appropriators. Have I fairly described it? That is a very good description. Putting more simply the authorization act tells you what you can do and authorizes very, various programs. And then the appropriations bill provides money to do the things that have been authorized. Again, this division goes back to the very early days of the Congress when John Quincy Adams was a member of Congress. And it made sense at the time as a way to prevent a lapse in funding for government, but I actually think the opposite is true now where the disconnect actually produces gridlock dysfunction and elapse of funding. So I've actually in the past signed on to a provision that would combine all the appropriations committees into the authorization committee simplify them, make them more tailored to do oversight of the executive branch agencies. And if you look at the past rounds of productive congressional reform, particularly those that took place in the mid 1940s under the leadership of a Wisconsin senator at the time, I would note. It has involved this process of consolidating the committees making them more coherent, but since then we've got a little bit out of control. And we find ourselves often in these jurisdictional fights between, oh, this committee doesn't want to work with this committee because they want to jealously guard their jurisdiction..

I'm just assuming, because when does he do that whenever his mouth is moving? But it says Chiron, I gotta get closed captioning gee, can we figure out a way to put that on this TV, you think? Closed captioning. It says maybe handle that before the show, right? It says, Biden has signed order to protect the bush and things. People are unbelievable. You have a Supreme Court ruling, right?

But you have the Supreme Court ruling in the Dobbs case, the row case, which basically says, listen to this state, you're going to have to figure it out on your own. There's no constitutional right to abortion, which there never was. If you can show me the word abortion in the constitution, I'll give you the $100,000 I was supposed to get Bill di McCarthy for his rather awful dreadful attempt at a fact check, okay? It's not there. It's an invented small R right air quotes. It doesn't exist. So rose says it's going to go back to the states. I'm going to cover this in my Fox show tomorrow night too. I went out the divided states of America. Yet the liberals aren't good with that. You're going to see now because there's no federally protected right air quotes to an abortion. Liberal states like California, Illinois, Maryland, New York, and otherwise. You're going to see them enact just absurd, ridiculous, you know, abortions where you're allowed abortion up to post birth, otherwise known as infanticide. That's what you're going to see happen. I wish it didn't, but it's going to. And you're going to see conservative states where they believe that life is worth protecting. That aren't going to want to do that. But that's not good enough for Biden and his team. You understand? That's not good enough. Biden and his team want to make sure you can kill babies in the womb. Whenever you want, wherever you want it, all the time. It's just not good enough for them. This is why we're the divided states of America right now. I'm going to do an unfiltered segment. No prompt or anything. On my Fox show tomorrow 99 about just this. About this, the gun issue, faith and institutions. How this is how you sit on that. Listen, I am an optimist. I don't want to sound especially on a Friday like a pessimist. I'm not. I do believe this country was touched by the hand of God I have said that over and over, I'll continue to say it because I believe it. And I think we will come through this mess, this morass we're in now. This Jimmy Carter malaise we're in now. I think we'll get out of it. But pretending we're not an incredibly divided two separate United States right now. It's just insane. I wish we weren't, but we are. We're in the middle of this cold ideological war right now, we're good enough isn't good enough. The abortion case, the gun's case is another I'm going to give away my whole unfiltered commitment. The gun's case is the same thing. The Second Amendment, the firearm case made it to the Supreme Court. All it said is, listen, there's a constitutional right to bear arms. You can put restrictions on it, but you can't be essentially a may issue state. You can't tell someone that you can't have a firearm because you don't feel like it. And Kathy hochul, the governor of New York, right after that, I was like, ah, screw you guys, double barreled middle finger. She didn't even wait to read the opinion. She came out and be like, we're going to check your social media history and do exactly what they told not to do. How's that the United States? You don't have due process, right? You don't have the same due process in New York as you do in other places. To exercise your constitutional rights. Couple other things before I get to the just horrifying news out of Japan. And I'll have two guests today. That's a rarity. You know, we don't do that often. I don't like having two guests per show.

"Sadly yes but Republicans as you said they're like afraid of bad media coverage shutting down the government we're not shutting down the government the Democrats are We're telling them we'll keep the government open We're just not going to allow you to force people to do something They don't want to do with this vaccine They're the ones that shut it down Well let me move on to another topic here This women in the draft Who Whose idea was this You know I'm a father to two daughters I was one of three boys but I don't have any boys I only have two young ladies in my house Whose idea Who's pushing this women in the draft idea And again why are there some in the Republican Party actually out there celebrating this Well that's unfortunate that some have bought into this And the vast majority of the Republican conference does not believe that we should draft women The vast majority of Republicans do not believe that we should draft women And in fact laws that all of this is that the 2016 Republican platform the last time we actually adopted a full platform adopted a provision that said we should not draft women And we all get that We all agree with that Anybody who's common sense understands that But unfortunately the sort of woke politics governs everything And Republicans run away from those fights They think well we can't pick these culture battles by the way look what happened in Virginia You can go buy some work You can go fight for parents and parental rights to educate their kids the way they want to And you can fight on this issue So far the good news is a few of us wage the war on this and right now it looks like they pulled that language out of the NDAA wrap that being circulated right now for voting today Now I'm not counting my chickens We've got a lot of work to do to beat this thing down to try to get it to be a neutral NDAA or a clean NDA focused on defense and not politics But the bottom line is the American people have been speaking up and letting people know they don't want their 18 year old daughters to be drafted and put in a foxhole by a Democratic Party that don't even recognize the difference between men and women in the first place Right right You're talking to congressman chip Roy out of the fantastic state of Texas I wish I was out there sometimes I love Florida until we got around the sands here But congressman again even with some members of the caucus hesitant to get involved in the culture wars I'd make the case This isn't even like a real culture war issue No one's saying women can serve in the military We're just saying that government shouldn't force them to do it I mean this is a grounder This is a bug This isn't even hard No one's suggesting Keep those women out of the military Like literally no one is saying that They're just saying don't force them to do it I don't even understand how this is an argument on the left Yes let's force those women into combat Let's do it This is supposed to be some feminism This is next generation feminism This is insane Yeah it is insane And unfortunately I can set a few Republicans went along with that But again let's spin this back to the positive Dan We have

"It. And reports show that even when people do come forward, the military often fails to properly investigate, and service members often face retaliation. In 2020, CBS News conducted an investigation and found a, quote, consequential failure to address the needs of service members who are assaulted or harassed, and found that the military had grossly mishandled a lot of sexual assault cases. Internally, a DoD report found that between 2011 and 2019, the number of investigations of sexual assault more than doubled in the armed services, but the military had an increase the resources are manpower to hold proper investigations. As a result, according to many sexual assault has become a systemic issue in the military, and it's an issue Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and a bipartisan group of lawmakers has pledged to tackle. So this year, the national defense authorization act is changing the rules. Under this new bill, commanders are no longer the ones responsible for deciding whether those accused of sexual assault would be prosecuted. That job is being given to an independent special trial counsel. But it's important to note, commanders are still involved in how a trial is conducted. They're in charge of the court marshaled their in charge of the witnesses, they're in charge at the timeline, they're in charge of which experts are allowed to speak. Think of it this way. It's basically like if you reported something to HR, which launched an investigation, but then your boss gets to decide the way that investigation goes down. From who HR gets to talk to, to what emails they can review. And while some are saying these new rules for the military are step in the right direction, others believe they don't go far enough. Republican senator Joni Ernst of Iowa and democratic senator Kirsten gillibrand of New York were part of a bipartisan group of senators who pushed for a new bill that would give commanders even less power and sexual assault cases. Kennedy agrees that the current changes in the NDAA aren't enough. I don't feel like this does enough to make cultural change. You know, you've got sexual assault classes that are still treated like an afterthought or some mandatory trading that no one wants to do and to do it every year. And it's a joke. That's what they take out of it as opposed to. You know, these are coworkers and we need to treat them with respect. I hope that this makes some change some progress. I hope that by having this prosecutor, the commander might be more open to facts coming from outside. But they're not lawyers. It's hard to make those huge overwriting changes. When that's just not their job. I think this is.

Air Force Discharges 27 for Refusing COVID-19 Vaccine
"That. And I want to begin with the story from The Wall Street Journal this morning that the air force has just charged 27 active duty service members for refusing the COVID-19 vaccine. What do you think of the policy? What do you think of their discharge status and what it should be? The NDAA says they will get honorable discharges, but that hasn't passed yet. For starters, when I joined the military hue, I had to take 9 different vaccines. When I prepared to deploy the desert storm, I had to take 11 anthrax shots. The culture settled law here is very clear. Active duty military because they are potential forward deployers. Have got to take these vaccines. So they have to be capable of doing that. You couple that with you're getting a direct order from your chain of command in my view, it is absolutely a requirement for every member of the armed forces to take this vaccine. It's the right thing to do. Not just for yourself, but for your shipmate to the left and right of you in that destroyer. You are protecting the force by doing this. So I take a pretty direct approach here. And I think the services will as well. Now having said all that, should there be some counseling, some leadership applied, should we give a little bit of time here? I think so. And I think where this will land you and we've seen this in other big organizations like the airlines or the medical world when people are given a date certain by which they have to get the vaccine or lose their job, IE get discharged in a military context. Tend to get 98%. And I think that's probably where we'll end up with military. Can we run the force on 98%? Yes. Don't like losing anybody who's a good performer, but if you can't do the basics and I look at this as doing the basics of your duty, I don't think you belong in the art forces, so I supported discharge. And frankly, I would support not an honorable discharge, but what's called an honorable under general conditions, which is one click lower to recognize the fact that you have disobeyed correct order and failed to accomplish duty.

Wow, you know, you're really kind of, you're in the zone today. I've tried. I'm impressed. All right. And thank you, grace. Headline and Politico progressives get rolled on Pentagon policy, talking about the NDAA, which is the national defense authorization act and the guy behind all of that, the guy behind the progressives getting rolled is our good friend congressman chip Roy, who is on the patriot mobile newsmaker line right now. Congressman good to have you with us today. Todd great to be on as always having a good build up to Christmas. Great to be on the show. Well, we are congressman and we love this time of year and I'm so thankful for the great work that you and the house freedom caucus members dead standing your ground on this very important issue. Yes, well look, we started sounding the alarm bells in June that we should know a shape or form be drafting our daughters conscript conscripting them to potentially be put in a foxhole by future Democrat president who can't frankly admit that there is a distinction or a difference between men and women. So we are happy to have that fight and frankly, a whole lot of the establishment in this town kept saying, oh, well, you know, we can't win this. We already had too many Republicans. You voted for it and committee. And the NDAA is a must pass Bill. You know what? That's just code for lay down your arms and just say, sure, whatever you want, Jamie dance, Christmas tree. And that's not the way this should work. That's not what the people who listen to your show that people who sent me to office. That's not where they sent us here. They sent us here to change this town. And so we decided to take on the fight. You know what? You can't win a fight that you don't pick. We take the fight and God bless we won this one, but we're just getting started. We have a lot more we need to do to stand up and defend the people who sent us here. You know, another part of the NDAA and it's for years for years they've been stuffing all sorts of stuff into this. They had something called the office of extremism, which you guys were able to get knocked out of there. What the heck was that? Yeah. Well, so we focused on our draft regards provision. We obviously we also went after the back band aid that are killing so many of our service members and making them be forced to potentially be discharged and were able to get them not to have to be dishonorably discharged. That's not good enough to be honest with you, but at least that's a step forward. And then this office of extremism, along with a whole bunch of other woke policies, it would have been a sort of open door Pandora's box for an office there to go after anybody in this country under some name of supposed extremism and putting that kind of woke politics in the Department of Defense. People are tired of that. They want a DoD that is there to kill people and blow things up when we need to do it. It's not a place for diversity training. It's not a place for climate change training. And it's not a place to create an office that you're going to use to try to target people because of their political views. And we know exactly as we saw in both the FBI targeting parents for daring to step up the school boards, how this administration views targeting the American people. So we were able to get that stripped out. And again, credit, I take a lot of shots. Credit Kevin McCarthy and to ranking member Mike Rogers for working with some of the Senate in his last couple of weeks to get this done. I wish we had done it sooner, but we were able to get some of these things out. And there was a big concern among our audience and our talk show, we're in a lot of military towns and communities. We are getting so many people calling in concerned about their loved one, not wanting to get that vaccination and yet they also didn't want to face a dishonorable discharge. You guys address that as well. Yeah, we were able to get that in my friend and my colleague, brief caucus, Mark green, got that amendment put in there, which eliminates the possibility of a dishonorable discharge, which that's great news. We also got some other standards in there improving the kind of standardization of the exceptions you can try to pursue. But we still fail to get the full ability to be discharged out. I don't think anybody should be fired for refusing to take what is a politicized vaccine. I think it ought to be up to you. I think I'd be up to your family, your doctor, but you shouldn't be forced to do it, but at least we fought hard to try to get that provision. You saw that the Senate yesterday, two Democrats voted to try to end the osha requirements in the private sector..

"This is all things considered from NPR news I'm Mary Louise Kelly And I'm Adi Cornish The national defense authorization act or NDAA passed last night and is headed towards the Senate Joining us now is Conor O'Brien a defense reporter for Politico has been following the story Welcome to the program Thanks for having me Tell us about the legislation's focus on Russia and China Well this has been a particular focus of The Pentagon trying to after 20 years of war and Afghanistan in the Middle East to reorient and match kind of the military modernization that we've seen coming out of Russia and China It was the focus of the national defense strategy that was issued under the Trump administration and continues under the Biden administration So and it's pretty popular on Capitol Hill So what you saw in this defense Bill was a focus on Russia and China Congress a couple of years ago created this what's called the Pacific deterrent initiative To reorient the military to the Pacific and build up posture there and deter China they put $7 billion into that a couple billion more than the Biden administration requested on Russia with the threat to Ukraine They approved $300 million to arm Ukraine about 50 million more than the administration requested So there are a number of things to that effect It's a major theme of this legislation Money for new technologies That's another that's another area of emphasis for The Pentagon and for lawmakers I think a big thing that you saw in this bill was providing funding for research and development for emerging technologies emphasis on things like AI and hypersonic missiles that are being developed by Russia and China And to allow for that investment you saw a willingness from Congress to allow The Pentagon to retire a lot of older weapons there were some of those some of those parochial battles over some of these what they call legacy weapons planes ships where Congress did kind of override The Pentagon but you did see some willingness to let them move forward with that and to reinvest that You called dropping women out of the draft a stunning reversal Why Well that was the provision that was proposed to expand selective service to require women to register for a draft Was in both the House and Senate defense bills And normally when something is in both bills it's typically a pretty good indicator of bipartisan support which it did have And that it would be in a final compromise bill So when we found out that it was that it was going to be out of the final agreement that was quite surprising I was a victory for conservatives like Josh hawley Jimmy and pushed to get that out of there really played hardball And was indicative of some of the wins that Republicans got in this bill That's Conor O'Brien defense reporter for Politico Thank you for your time Thanks Today the U.S. Supreme Court's conservative supermajority seem poised to hand school choice advocates a big victory as in paralegal affairs correspondent Nina totenberg reports that could mean a very big expansion of state programs that are required to fund religious education Maine is a state so rural that a majority of school districts don't have a high school The way the state has dealt with that problem is to contract with existing public high schools to take kids from the districts with no high school and to pay the same amount to non sectarian private schools to take up the slack as well What the state will not do is pay tuition for students attending religious schools School choice advocates have long sought ways to promote equal treatment for religious schools with taxpayer funds and they had a willing audience today from the court 6 conservatives 5 of whom attended religious schools all signaled that they too view mains refusal to find religious schools as unconstitutional The court's liberals noted that in the past the court has said states may have voucher programs that allow parents to send their kids to religious schools but that in this case school choice advocates are asking the court to require that states must treat religious schools the same way they treat non sectarian private schools Justice breyer suggested that in this case beliefs taught in a religious school seemed to.

"And like I said, Q with regard to the defense budget, we are putting forward, we Republicans are much more robust budget, but we also need to be both overtly and covertly telling the Chinese that, hey, this is not what they should be doing and we have the right to retaliate. And I always say in terms of retaliation, whether it's cyber or other things, it can be asymmetric. It can be symmetric, but it's got to be at the time of our choosing. So again, we need to take a tougher stance with regard to China, but the biggest thing they watch, the biggest thing they watch is what we're spending on defense, not what we're saying, but what we're doing. And in that regard, we need to do more. So last question, senator Dan Sullivan from Alaska member of armed services. The NDAA is the most important piece of legislation. It should come first. It's held up on the floor. Will there get will it move forward in a rational way with everything that it needs. Today, tomorrow the next day. Well, first of all, I agree with you that this is one of the most important pieces of legislation. It moves every year it's moved every year in the Congress for over 60 years and again, this goes to the prioritization of where the national Democrats are who we pass this out of committee in July. Wow. Schumer Schumer brought up the bill two weeks ago end of the year and we had been calling for him to bring it to the floor since what the heck are you doing? We were confirming low level nominees for weeks as they behind closed doors try to get their build back better. By the way, build back better to the 1970s, the malays and Jimmy Carter is what they're bringing upon this fact of the future. I'd love to come on the show again and talk about their high energy prices, which they are purposely driving up, but now we have it on the floor, and you may have seen the NDAA, we blocked it moving forward yesterday or two days ago because we wanted more amendments. This is, look, I work on this all year being on the committee, but a lot of senators want to have the opportunity to bring amendments forward. For example, on Nord stream, where Biden is appeasing Putin in Europe on the natural gas pipeline, we want to have amendments that we can bring to the floor. I think you're going to see that today. But this is, again, where do they prioritize? Let me give you another one that nobody has even followed at all. We right now have a chairman of the joint chiefs and the vice chairman of the joint chiefs position is empty. It's empty. Why? Because Biden didn't even put forward a nominee after general heighten had to retire due to statute. So we have an empty spot right now because they didn't care about the military. It's unforgivable. Well, keep coming back, senator Sullivan asked senator Murkowski to join you. I hope she wins reelection. I will help her get that reelection run up in Alaska. We need you two people representing America's northernmost state, the one that borders with Russia in position of authority in the Senate. Thank you, Dan Sullivan. I'll be right back America on the Hugh Hewitt show..

The NDAA, the national defense authorization act the Republicans who are bending over backwards to facilitate the crazies in the Democrat party. Well, not crazy. The crazy Democrat party told us about this idea of the draft for women. And who's behind this insanity and give us your take justice? Well, you know, there is so much disarray with this current administration that I couldn't tell you the logic behind any of it. Other than they have been enabled by our enemies. I mean, I look at this as just watering down the capabilities of our United States military one drip at a time. And people, you know, I get on Twitter and I get these guys. I wanna say, well, you all wanted equality. And I'm like, stop it. Stop it. Don't sit here and argue with someone like me. I wasn't one of those lieutenants that went to go to the courts and protest ensues, so I could become a general one day. The odds of you becoming a general in the infantry are slim to almost zero. Number one, number two, what is your motivation for this? It's not going to impact combat readiness. On one level. So first of all, there was a study done by the United States Marine Corps when Obama had lifted the combat exemption for women. And I believe it was 2015. April 15th, I remember was tax day. And it went without nobody cried. Nobody cried. Civilian women didn't even care. And I'm sorry, civilian ladies, you never care till it impacts you. And the fact is, as they've taken it for granted that their daughters wouldn't get drafted, but I told that many radio shows and TV shows as soon as you put women in ground combat, how are you going to be able to say you can justifiably stop putting it having them in the draft? So here's the thing, the bulk of the women don't want to go in the infantry for a multitude of reasons. We have 45% less muscle mass 20% less won capacity. And I hear women in the army particularly want to get mad at me and say, oh, you're against women's rights. Say, you are not thinking this out. Even if a woman can get through the training, what are her odds of surviving hand to hand combat with the enemy? Because that's what Fallujah was. This is equivalent to putting a woman in a mixed martial arts cage with a man. You can not believe pounds or 80 pounds of equipment. And not only that, the enemy tends to fight on methamphetamines and other drugs. So that right there. Two. Even if you pass the training, your odds are you're going to be at the lower percentile of the men. Unless they've done so many accommodations, they've lowered the standard. You now have

And you're going to suddenly inject people into this environment who are handling machinery and weapons have to deploy for months on end in submarines in the desert wherever and they have a higher than 40% suicide rate.

My co host, Jeffrey Wilson. You know, saying, we both looked at each other when Trump renewed the NDAA, which allows them to use propaganda that allows indefinite detentions. And it allows them to drone you. I said, well, doesn't look like he is probably the white hat. So when I was in D.C., not one not myself, not any of the guys I was with. Now, one of us had anything on our bodies that said Trump. And when Trump was speaking, we just walked away and went down to the capitol because we knew eventually that's where everybody's going to end up because lawmakers were going through all the states and all that sort of stuff.
