John Solomon: Ministry of Truth Is Weapon of Mass DISTRACTION
"John Solomon, welcome back to the Salem radio network. Good to be with you, Sam. Good, happy Monday. I didn't go to the White House correspondents dinner. I went to the pre party that newsmax through. Were you in the building? I mean, there was only 5000 people in the building. I'm not sure I saw you. Did you go? I didn't go. Now I've long ago tired of these dinners, so I'm much more interested in reporting on the weekends and going to a dinner. I'd rather work. You've got better things to do. And he is seriously one of the hardest working guys out there. Okay, we're going to talk about what you found out. I have it in front of me the latest developments from the Durham special prosecutor investigation. But first, given that you're a journalist who has to sift between fake information and find the real gold, your reaction to the creation of this disinformation governance board. What do you think of this take from the former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich cut 5? This is a censorship board. Now, the First Amendment of the constitution says you can't make any law that affects free speech. So Mallorca, who I think should be impeached immediately, and the board should be defunded immediately. Mallorca is essentially explaining that there are going to be break the constitution, exercise censorship, and that's what it is. Censorship, and we're supposed to trust their appointees who are all left wingers to be fair and neutral. This is nonsense. I mean, these people are crazy. And I think we need to understand what they're trying to do is a total violation of the American constitution. Isn't he right, John, that this is I mean, how can they even consider this idea given that the constitution is very clear with regards to government's role? Yeah, I'm not a bridge. The First Amendment, the constitution is correct. It's the government's role not to do that. And listen, I think you said it right. These people are crazy. A lot of the people I talk to this week and have the exact same reaction. And some of them are Democrats saying, I can't believe what they're doing. It's like kamikaze politics. Who came up with this idea? And maybe we can give Putin the Medal of Freedom next week. They were that upset about how stupid this idea is. And then look who they picked, right? A woman who perpetrated first, the Russia collusion hoax, and then argued for the censorship of the Hunter Biden laptop, she's wrong on the first two issues where she was mitigating information in the public space, this is a bad idea from start to finish and probably more a weapon of mass distraction than an actual
Newt Gingrich: Donald Trump May End up as the Nominee
"Here's Newt Gingrich. Last night, on Fox News channel, really smart one of the smartest men I've ever met. And of course, a veteran of political battles, the Speaker of the House, the author, the architect rather, of the contract with America, let's listen to what newt said last night on Sean Hannity show. Look, I think we have a lot of great candidates. I personally think Ron DeSantis has a tremendous future as an example, or somebody like Rick Scott, a number of governors around the country. But the truth is, if Trump retains his hold on the base of the Republican Party that he currently has and particularly if he starts shifting towards describing a better future, I think that he will consolidate and almost certainly end up as the nominee. Tonight's a very big night in terms of 2024, as well as in terms of 2022. And it fits what we're saying. The fact is, inflation matters, collapse at the border matters, crime matters, high prices for gasoline and food matters. And in the middle of all this, the corruption of the Biden family matters and I think the Democrats are going to discover that the January 6th committee doesn't matter to most Americans, and they're going to discover that a hard line pro abortion extremism doesn't appeal to most Americans. And in fact, will accelerate their loss of African American and Latino voters who are culturally conservative.
Should America Intervene? In-Depth With Speaker Newt Gingrich
"Now as someone who always tends to just make sense of confusing times, he is so clear and so wise and it's an honor to have him back on our program. Speaker Newt Gingrich. Mister speaker, welcome back to the program. It's great to be with you as always. So mister speaker, yesterday, president zelensky gave a moving address to the Congress. Give us your reaction. What would your response to that be? If you were Speaker of the House of Representatives and what should the Republican response be as after hearing that address? Well, I think I would draw a very sharp line. Between giving the Ukrainians as much help as we can to defeat the Russian invasion, but not committing America to any kind of war. I think that if we provide enough equipment and we provide enough training, which could be done outside of Ukraine, I think there's a very high likelihood they're going to defeat the Russians. And part of it is because, you know, dying for Putin is not a particularly exciting idea, whereas defending your own country is a very exciting idea. And I think many of these so called analysts, including our own intelligence services and the chairman of the joint chiefs, we're just plain wrong. They all assumed if he just looked at the numbers, that the Russians would roll over Ukraine that the Ukrainians would collapse. Well, the Ukrainians stood up for freedom. I think there are two practical reasons for helping them. One is specifically to help people who want to be free. And who are prepared to risk their lives to be free. But the other is to send a signal to dictators around the world that you can't just go and basically attack your neighbor. This is very similar psychologically to the rise in violent crime in the United States, where we elected a series of George Soros financed district attorneys who basically said, you know, you can steal, you can rob. We're going to put you back on the street. And some of these cities we're not going to have bail, no matter how often you do things. And so you end up with some guy with 16 different crimes on his record, killing a 24 year old college student while she's working at a store or you end up with a person who's clearly mentally deranged, stabbing two people at a museum. And I think similarly, you have a very similar pattern in international relations. If it was easy for Putin to take Ukraine, the chance of Xi Jinping deciding to occupy Taiwan would go up dramatically. Now,
Joe Biden Labels Putin a 'War Criminal' -- Is He Right?
"Yesterday there was a kind of conflict when it came to describing Vladimir Putin, cut 79, Joe Biden labels, Vladimir Putin, a war criminal, play cut 79. Now, if the story is true, again, if, because there's been a lot of misinformation and disinformation around this topic, it's hard to disagree with the statement saying that Putin is a war criminal. Now I think he misheard somebody or I don't know, his aides corrected him on this. But there's this story that is coming out in the last couple of days about this bombing campaign of this mere Paul theater. Quote, children were spelled out on two sides of the Mari Paul theater before bombing, satellite images show. Basically, they wrote children on both sides of the theater. Now, this might be a true collection of events, or it might be another snake island of ghost of Kyiv. New satellite images from Maxar technologies show that on Monday, the word children was spelled outside of the theater that the maripa city council was bombed on Wednesday. The city council said that on Wednesday, the Russian forces had quote purposefully and cynically destroyed the drama theater in the heart of marital, the plane had dropped a bomb on a building, where hundreds of Mari Paul residents were hiding. So I don't really see how anyone could see that and not believe that is not just immoral, but what a war criminal would
A Ukrainian Town Deals Russia One of the War's Most Decisive Routs
"So I want to read a story here from The Wall Street Journal, Ukrainian town routes Russians. Starts actually on the first page of The Wall Street Journal here. This morning, which is hard not to admire the Ukrainian people who are fighting for their home against the Russian aggression. Ukrainian town deals Putin one of the most his most decisive routes. A Kalashnikov rifle swung over his shoulder, mikhailo sorico, spent this Tuesday driving through fields and forests picking up a dead Russian soldiers and taking them to a freezer railway car piled with Russian bodies. A rapid Russian advance into the strategic southern town of 35,000 people, a gateway to the Ukrainian nuclear power station in pathway to attack Odessa from the back would have showcased the Russian military's ability and severed Ukrainians key communication lines instead, the two day battle of details of which are now only starting to emerge, turned decisively against the Russians. Judging from the destroyed and abandoned armor, Ukrainian forces which comprised local volunteers and professional military eliminated most of the Russian battalion tactical group marked March 2 and three. Now, I'm going to continue to read the story here, find it. It's pretty awesome to see people rise up and defend their home. I have to say. The Ukrainian defenders performance against a much better armed enemy in an overwhelmingly Russian speaking region was successful. In part because of the widespread popular support for the Ukrainian cause, one reason the Russian invasion across the country has failed to achieve its principal goals so far. Ukraine on Wednesday said it was launching a counter offensive on several fronts, quote everyone is united against the common enemy. So the 32 year old mayor, a former real estate developer, turned wartime commander, who like other local officials moves around with a gun, we are defending our own land. This isn't going according to plan for the Russians, it
What Republicans Are Planning if They Win the House Majority
"What are Republicans going to run on? And more importantly, what are they going to do if they take back the House of Representatives? Will a newly released article from Washington examiner goes through that? What Republicans are planning to do if they win back the House majority? And we're going to go piece by piece of what they are promising their voters. And it's about time that we hold our elected officials accountable because if you're like me, you're probably exhausted and tired and cynical that Republicans keep on winning elections. And we lose the country. The parents party, the Republican Party, plans, and promises that if they take back the House of Representatives similar to the contract with America, now why Republicans do not replicate the contract with America every election cycle is beyond me, but Kevin McCarthy and House Republicans, including Jim Jordan and some phenomenal base conservatives, have said they are going to replicate the Newt Gingrich contract with America. They're going to call it commitment to America. It's not that great. I don't love that. It should be a lot more aggressive than a commitment. It should be applied, or it should be something that is unbreakable an oath, commitment sounds like something that's some shady business guy will break. Okay. Number one, here's what Republicans plan to do. I like some of this. I think this is some grassroots driven energy. Some of it's all right, but some of it is phenomenal. Pass a parent's Bill of rights, Republicans in November released draft legislation that aimed to require school districts to post curriculum publicly, require teachers to offer two in person meetings per year, prevent schools from selling or sharing student data without parent permission and require students to notify parents of violent activity on school grounds. It's really basic stuff. McCarthy said on a recent episode. Next one, China, COVID-19 accountability measures, a plan released by House Republicans trying to task force last year called for legislation to declassify information on the origins of COVID-19, prohibiting the U.S. funding from gain of function research. So here's where I think they're taking a good approach. They need to use their newfound political power for aggressive oversight. That's actually the next point. Take an aggressive oversight posture. In the minority Republicans on committees can do not have the power to compel witnesses to speak under oath, and the majority Republicans aim to use that power liberally. Particularly if they do not have a supermajority to overcome filibuster in the Senate or override any vetoes from President Biden. Republicans want to investigate the following. How we had the U.S. troops withdraw from Afghanistan and giving them $85 billion in weapons. The origins of where COVID came from, the national school board association's relationship with the Department of Justice and asked if federal agencies threatened to stop threats of violence. Also, what's happening on the U.S. Mexico border? Republicans have already issued preservation notices and document requests to relevant agencies and individuals related to these items. They're going to eliminate House rules implemented by Pelosi, kind of technical stuff like masked men not being able to vote by proxy and vote remotely. Take on big tech. They're going to put forward a framework to take on big tech calls to reform section two 30, prevent the companies from discriminating based on political affiliation, an increase their transparency. Also, back a antitrust bill that would give states attorneys attorney generals more control over where antitrust litigation is conducted, and then strip House Democrats from certain committees, in retaliation for Democrats removing Marjorie Taylor Greene and Paul gosar, House Republicans plan to strip Elon Omar, saying that she should not be on the foreign affairs committee, and Adam Schiff should not be on the intelligence committee, which he's currently the chairman. Nor should Eric swalwell be on the intelligence committee or the Homeland Security committee. This is actually okay. Would you agree Connor? This is actually some pretty good
Rep. Andy Biggs: Biden Should Release Transcript of Phone Call With Zelensky
"Congressman so much to talk about here First what's going on in Ukraine right now big controversy last night on CNN CNN reports Biden had a really troublesome phone call with zelensky Big dispute about what was said Did Biden tells zelensky and invasion was imminent or not Listen what he said or not I don't know We don't have the transcript but you see the danger here congressman with the whole Trump phone call how the left wanted transcripts and you know we at the time said you know maybe that's not a good idea because then the president won't be conducting foreign policy if he realizes everything will go out in the press but you know what if that's the rule congressman they wanted the transcript on the Trump call I think Biden should have to abide by the same rule and clear up the controversy over what he told zelensky Your thoughts Amen to that We don't know what was said on the phone call And the Democrats were already trying to impeach president Trump before they even got the transcript So should we be engaged in an impeachment effort because he called this guy and it sounds like it might have been a troublesome phone call This is the outrageousness of what the Democrats did The new rules the newt the new tradition new standards that they created themselves and of course they're not going to adhere to the standards that they
Jim Hanson on His Political Expectations for 2022
"On. Let's look at the political system in the last 11 months and what we can predict for the future. We have I consider him there's some real greats in America, a handful, like Victor Davis Hansen, one of the greatest political minds for me is Newt Gingrich. He said the insanity of the Democrat party right now is a function of the fact that they know they know they're going to get totally shellacked next year. And they've got to they've got to stuff it all in the kit bag right now because they won't have control. It is fascinating that the arch strategist, Nancy Pelosi, is refusing to confirm that she's going to run. She's bought a $25 million house in Ron DeSantis state of Florida. Sorry Ron. So are they not going to try and treat? Are they not going to be able to cheat enough? Do you agree with that we take over if we do? What happens with the rhinos give us your expectation given the last ten months what's going to happen next year? It's been heartening for me to see how badly the left is screwed up and the fact that the backlash started right here. In Virginia. You know, our first win was turning Virginia back red and that was massive. Let's unpack that. My argument having had Glen on the show having met him is he didn't win it. He pivoted, he saw the mama bears, he embraced them. It was the mama bears that won it. I mean, I didn't think he was going to win. Honestly, you know, Terry, the bagman for the clintons, I thought he's going to do whatever it takes to win it. Who won in Virginia and why, Jim? We won. And everyone on the right one and I don't care Glenn can mean very little to me personally. Terry McAuliffe losing means massive things to all of us because it showed a we can win elections. There was so much disheartening. They tried. You know, they were trying to say, where's my extra panel trucks? Full of ballots for fairfax. And they never showed up. All right, so we can actually win an election. It gave us a little momentum, throw in the written house verdict and then actually they are very verdict showing that our justice system works. The jury system works and we have that. It takes a little wind out of the sales to the left, and now we're looking forward to 2022 and parents everywhere are rising up. So like you said, the mama bears and the rest who have been going to school board meetings and telling them we don't want our kids turned into socialists are their nationwide
What Congressman Jim Jordan Would Do if the GOP Takes Back the House
"You know, we're Newt Gingrich on the program. Newt said that if we take back the house, we can't go back to business as usual. We're going to have to kind of make Pelosi feel some of the pain she inflicted on Republicans, meaning that, you know what? You might not get committee assignments. You know what? That we're going to have our own special commissions. You have the January 6th commission. We might have a Fauci virus commission and all this. You know, if you're chairman of the judiciary committee, is there going to be, I know it's an F and F and F and I understand all that. But just a lot of voters they kind of want to hear like, hey, is it going to be equal time for Nadler and you? I mean, or is it going to be like, hey, we're in charge now. We're going to go find out what's actually happened. So today, committee, offered a resolution to subpoena documents from the attorney general, the FBI director, the secretary of education and the president of the school boards association who sent the initial letter on September 29th that began this whole episode of target parents putting a threat tag on mom's a dad. So the chairman said, nope, we're not going to take up the resolution to subpoena those documents. So if we're in charge, we will subpoena those documents exactly right. We will get the information because Charlie, here's what I think happened in that specific case. I don't actually think the letter was what prompted the Biden White House in the Garland Justice Department to target parents. I think it went the other direction. I think they just wanted the letter as an excuse as a pretext exactly. To do what they wanted to do, which was target parents and chill the speech of moms and dads because they didn't like that political growth they were seeing out there. They wanted to stop that. So it was much like the letter was exactly like the dossier in the Trump Russia investigation, where Jim Comey wanted to go after president Trump. Wanted to spon his campaign. He just needed a reason, so all Shazam here comes this dossier that they knew was garbage, but they used it as the pretext to do what they wanted to do. I think the same thing happened here. And God bless this whistleblower who came forward with his email that shows that that Tim langon head of the counter terrorism division at the FBI sent out his email putting this same to FBI agents around the country, put this threat tag on parents is designation used counter terrorism measures to go after mom's death. It is so wrong. So that's the kind of stuff we're going to have
Former Rep. Dave Brat Agrees All Modern Democrats Are Radicals
"That. I'm sure you agree newt is one of the greatest political minds out there. You fought as a congressman. You want to seat you weren't supposed to win. But today's Democrat party, it's just radicals, isn't it Dave? Yeah. Yeah, and I think newt had the right solution. Our conference, right? People may not even know what that is. When all the Republicans get together once a week, we meet in conference. And our strategy back when I was there and I think it's been the strategy for a couple decades is you just let everyone run their own race. So you've got the entire national intelligence agencies, coupled up with big media. Now teamed up with big technology, all the donors are on the left. And a single congressman with a megaphone is supposed to compete against that one on infinity. And it doesn't work. And that's why we lose. We do not have a team voice. And so our speaker of the House needs to get a new contract that we all believe in that that hits over 51% that's newt's genius. And it's got to solve the problems of America. It's not just a win election. It's got to solve problems, getting rid of this, the 45 trillion in debt. Everybody knows what the problems are, right? The border and you're just chaos across the country right now. But we need to speak with one voice and we need a leader. Newt was a leader, and we need a leader who will speak with one voice and unite us. And even with that, it's an uphill fight against the press and all the forces I just mentioned, but that's what we got
Newt Gingrich Offers Advice to Next Republican Administration Against China, Big Tech
"So the next administration, the GOP writ large when it comes to the external threat of China and the internal threat of big tech, what would you say to president Trump? Well, I'd say, first of all, the text is easier of the two. Simply make them comment carriers and make it a ability to sue for triple damages. And you'll overnight see them change their behavior. But that's going to be a big fight, but there's no there's no excuse when you have a system like Twitter, which knocks off a person who got 73 million votes. Knocks off the oldest and fourth largest newspaper in America, the New York Post founded by Alexander Hamilton. But allows the Taliban spokesperson to stay on. You know the system is just plain sick. So I think we need to have I don't want government involved, but I think we need to create an opportunity for individuals and companies to protect themselves in court. And if you could sue for triple damages, I mean, the New York Post alone would have gotten a huge amount of money out of the way they were treated in
Newt Gingrich: 'Trump Was the Most Effective Anti-Liberal I've Ever Seen'
"We're back one on one. This is America first with me Sebastian gorka and Newt Gingrich. Speak again, which let's talk about my former boss the 45th president United States. To you, what did his victory in 2016 mean? I find it amusing that as an immigrant to this nation, I have to remind my fellow Americans that it was the first time in our republic's history that we elected a non politician or a non retired military officer to the highest post in the land. How much for you did he change American politics inexorably? Well, I think if you look at Glenn young Ken's victory, you see an example of it. I mean, young gun campaigned on lowering taxes, less regulation, more jobs. He campaigned on taking on the culture war. Things that I think certainly on the culture war front the traditional Republicans would never have touched. Trump, I think I thought it was an extraordinarily important victory because I always tell people it's not that Trump is a great conservative. I don't think he sat around reading Bill Buckley and trying to understand theoretical conservatism. But Trump was the most effective anti liberal. I've ever seen. He just applied common sense. And did any act that he did things all day every day, and he was steadily methodically taking apart the left's world, which is why they hated him. And why they rigged the election and spent so much time for some literally from before his election. I mean, the first article in The Washington Post on impeachment is like April of 2016. And the day that he is being inaugurated, there's an article in the post on impeachment. And the day after his inauguration, there is a huge crowd and Madonna talks about how she envisions The White House getting blown up as a positive experience. And it was an unending four year war in part because Trump is a genuine threat. He's the first time I think since Andrew Jackson that you had a genuine threat to the
Speaker Newt Gingrich Pinpoints the Watershed Moment in Glenn Youngkin's Campaign
"Speaking English as a resident of Virginia, I am, of course, buoyed. I am very excited by the recent victory of Glenn young of his lieutenant governor of his attorney general. What is, can we read a broader significance into this for next year and for 2024 or is it rather sui generous as a resident of the Commonwealth, I look at what happened here. And I see a businessman not unlike president Trump with no political background. He brought a business like attitude to the campaign, talked about getting Virginia back to work. But in the last few weeks, because of those mothers you mentioned at the school boards, he very adroitly pivoted to this culture war issue of fighting critical race theory and vowed to ban it on his first day in office. Is that a model or should Virginia be dealt with this as something unique? No, I think I watched lens campaign closely and talked frequently with his campaign manager. And I believe that the turning point of the campaign actually was when he went to a loudon county rally of a thousand people who were upset about the schools, and then in the debate when former governor Terry mcauliffe said that there was no place for parents in schools, and that was electrifying and as you pointed out Glen is a businessman and built a good campaign team and they actually had something up on the air. By the next morning. And just throw home for everybody in Virginia, the term of thought that there was no place for parents and schools. And that, I think became the signal moment that began to change everything. No, young can also did a very adroit job of having Trump's help in rural and southern Virginia where he's extraordinarily popular without having Trump campaign in Arlington and fairfax county where he's unpopular. And so junkin was able to pick up all the support in the suburban counties from people who were upset about the schools while picking up all the support in rural and small town Virginia from everybody who was pro
Speaker Newt Gingrich Describes the Power of 'Cheerful Resistance'
"Speaker Newt Gingrich welcome to America first one on one. Well, thank you very much and with that kind of an overwhelming introduction. How could I do anything with be happy to be with you? Well, we don't even need we shouldn't need to introduce you. I have this short bio that's on the back of your new book beyond Biden. I'll just mention one thing author of 41 books that enough said right there. I heard you speak just a few days ago at the museum of the Bible here in Washington, D.C. an amazing institution, where some great people from Liberty University and elsewhere, Doug the groot and the former Republican congressman Dave brat had an idea for a new contract with America like the one you penned this time for the business interests that are so stymied by this new administration. And let's start with what you said during that invigorating speech. You talked about the need for a positive attitude. The cheery attitude taught us about how the concept of the happy warrior. So embodied by Ronald Reagan is all the more important now in a post COVID age and with the trillions of dollars we see being wasted on Capitol Hill. I think one of my favorite terms is cheerful persistence. I think anything big at thanks persistence, but if you're cheerful, you are dramatically more likely to have people helping you get there. And I think that the objective fact is that 330 million free people, each endowed by their creator with the right to pursue happiness creates such momentum of creativity and excitement and enthusiasm and energy that despite the best efforts of the totalitarians on the left and the big government socialists and the woke radicals that in the end of free people went
Should the Republican Party Have a Contract With America?
"So mister speaker, something, I don't quite understand and kind of I think stumbled into this is why Republicans do not continually embrace the sort of very specific clear and transparent contract with America that you led with in the 90s. If there were to be a contract with America today, for this next election in 2022, what would it be? Educational choice, parental rights. Why is it that Republicans just seem to not be able to get out of their own way when it comes to this? Well, look, I think there's an old tradition in the Republican Party, particularly among the country club Republicans that they're better than that. They don't get their hands dirty with those kind of issues. And I think part of what Trump did was he broke loose both the basically anti confrontation Republicans who dislike Trump and became known for trumpers. And he broke loose. The blue collar workers of every ethnic background. I remember Trump in 2020, got a higher percentage of the minority vote than any Republican in 60 years. And that's because he was willing to take on and talk very bluntly and candidly about people who have radical views and want to profoundly change America. Now I think and this is where I think Glenn young can maybe a very important figure in American history. Young and could be a natural sort of establishment Republican. He's very successful economically. He was the co chair of the Carl group, which was the largest investment group in the middle Atlantic. But he found that the hunger was to take on the left on their local values. And he was smart enough to respond and realize as a leader that he'd have a lot bigger army if he was prepared to roll up his sleeves and get in the middle of that fight. And I would say for next year, first of all, for the first time since 1994, I now advocate that we do have a contract with America, both next year and again in 2024. And I would say that education issues have to be at the center
Speaker Newt Gingrich Describes Where the GOP Should Focus Its Attention
"There is this ongoing debate. And I would love your take on it of how much do we talk about of things that happened, like the 2020 election? How much do we focus on things that need to be done? And then how much do we focus on things that are currently happening such as the Biden regime? You're making the argument that we need to have a little bit more of a forward thinking approach. Obviously not discounting, you know, things that happen previously. What's the correct balance in that sense? Well, I think other than stipulating that the 2020 election was raped, where we have a brilliant book by Hemingway and entitled rigs. So it's pretty straightforward. I think we need election reforms overwhelmingly the American people want you to prove who you are. They want the votes to be honest and accurate. And then we're seeing in most of the Republican states serious methodical election reforms to get to honor selections where everybody gets to vote, but we know who they are. We know they're legally a citizen. We know they're allowed to do it. Then I think I was sort of argue for a two step process. Inflation is terrible and is a natural consequence of big government socialism. And therefore, here's what we would do about it. The border being uncontrolled as a disaster. And therefore, here's what we would do about it. So I think as always, it should always be a one punch of them, and then an open hand offering a better future on our side. And I think if we do that, then when we do win and I think we're going to win big next year and even bigger in
Speaker Newt Gingrich on His New Book 'Beyond Biden'
"Show with us today. He's a legend of the conservative movement and one of the wisest smartest people I think in the entire country. Speaker gingrich, who has a new book out that I encourage everyone to purchase beyond Biden is the book rebuilding the America we love mister speaker. Welcome back to the Charlie Kirk show. Tell us a little bit about this book. But first of all, it's always going to be with you and you do an amazing show. When I sat down and tried to decide on my next book, I decided not to do an anti Biden book, which obviously would have been pretty popular. At least some of our folks. Because I thought Biden himself would prove to be sufficiently anti Biden, and that's exactly what's been happening. But I always concerned about the country. One of the things that when Republicans get back in charge, they should focus on because it's not enough to just be anti. We have a real competitor with China, which is I think a genuine danger to eliminating our freedom and our independence. We have great challenges in our inner cities both from crime, and in education. We have a huge challenge on the border with illegal immigration. You're down the list. And so I wanted to write a book that was beyond just being anti Biden. And that really talked about, this is the kind of stuff we're going to have to do. We got a roller seas up. If we're going to be successful as a country. And I absolutely think we have to think in terms of modernizing America. We have very old bureaucracies that are based on the industrial era. They don't work very well. And that includes The Pentagon, which we just saw in Afghanistan. It includes NASA, which has had a particularly large project that is absurdly overpriced to them actually that are extraordinary over budget and over time. It includes all the major bureaucracies in Washington. And from them, parallel bureaucracies at the state and local level. So we have a lot to do. And beyond Biden is my effort to be in the communicate how big the changes have
The Country Is Pushing Back Against Radicalized Kooks and Screwballs
"We are in upside down world and there's a chance there's a chance for people in Virginia to. Dispense some real real hope for America. If they elect Glenn young next week. Because it feels like the whole country is starting to wake up. Here was Newt Gingrich, last night on Sean Hannity's show on Fox News. But right now, I would say the young kids on offense and that the governor is on defense and while this probably still is a purple state because I think that it was drifting blue, but this administration is going to turn most of America red. And I think Virginia is caught up in the same wave as most of the country outside of the really heavily unionized states, like New York or California, and even in New Jersey, the last poll shows the Republicans now within four points of the democratic governor. And that's a very heavily unionized traditionally very blue state. It feels like the country is pushing back against these radicalized kooks and

"Mr speaker from what i understand. The democrat party is scared to death. That president biden. We'll have to leave office. That leaves carmella. Is i call her. We'll have to move into phillies place and thus the vice president will no longer be the deciding. Vote in the senate so my question is what is your take on the problem. The senate democrats face should biden resign on. That actually wouldn't work their way. Because you would have the new president just as happened with nixon and ford. When nixon resigned and ford became the new president ford then recommended nelson rockefeller in the house. Approved it so rockefeller became vice president. So i think there might be thirty day break but they would nominate somebody who the house would agree to approve. And that person would then become the vice president under the twenty-fifth amendment..

We have no oath registered in heaven that we have to leave. Afghanistan rang now. Why don't we stop pulling out engage. Countries like india who have joined interest in afghanistan and working diplomatic way. Out of this problem was it. It's a good question. I would say you have to remember. How complicated the region is pakistan is the primary supporter of the taliban india pakistan. Have a very delicate relationship. They both have nuclear weapons. They have a very deep bitter enmity over who controls kashmir the chinese. Don't wanna get to directly involved because they are deeply frightened of islam. And that's why they're so busy trying to crush the weaders. Because from a standpoint of the han chinese this whole notion of religious intensity just terrifies them. The russians have been in and out for at least one hundred and fifty years there. Several small countries on the north of afghanistan that are largely russian influence to dan and the iranians are on the west and the iranians have some interest. But i remember. I've been around long enough that i was involved back when we were driving the soviets out of afghanistan and i tell people at the time the soviet gonna leave afghan has streaming alexander. The great was driven out of afghanistan. The british once lost an entire column of well over a thousand men in afghanistan. This is a very very tough region and we don't currently have a solution to how to govern it and it's not part of our capabilities we'd have to rethink very very deeply. What strategies would be. And it's been very hard to get anybody else to go help because frankly it's too violent and the terrain is too hard so those huge amounts of minerals there it is conceivable and if i were betting the chinese of the most likely to go in and start mining but if they do they're gonna mind and very narrow areas are going to protect them militarily they're going to have local airfields and they're not going to try to deal with the problem of governing afghanistan. That is going to cut a local deal payoff local chiefs and take the minerals if they decide to do it. And there's no real evidence right now that they're going to do that. I knew charles killer. I live in mclean. now. I live in leesburg. I have two questions. I there's talk that when arizona georgia finish their lots that the pressure will be on the republican officials in georgia and arizona to reverse the off election democrat senators. Is that something that the that the states have the right in the ability lawfully to do i think once they have been sworn in. It's very hard to imagine how you're going to get out. But on the other hand it makes them de legitimize to me. If it turns out that senator warnaco the freshmen in georgia did not win when they get the recount done remember. The recount in his race is after the general election. So most of the counting. That's going on right now. Released to the general election in november doesn't relate to the runoff in january. Although the person in that sense he's probably the most aggrieved senator purdue because it's pretty good reason to believe he might actually have one. I mean if it does turn out that the state were dramatically different and that fulton county was so corrupt that they stole it from county. It's very possible that purdue will be the person who suffered the most because of election irregularities but there are no real provision for going back. I mean in theory. I guess you could file a complaint and seek a recount of it being done within a week or two of the election. I've never heard of being done six months later. Okay second question. Do you think it would be a good idea to make. Colleges cosign loans given to students at this a part of your program for schools. Absolutely i think that universities and colleges need to have skin in the game. I think that it's absurd that we've had this long cycle where the federal government creates bigger and bigger grandch- colleges cost more and more and more and you just become an inflationary spiral then the colleges decide. They need to hire administrators and then they had to hire assistance to the administrators and they need to hire associated administrators to the assistant administrators. You look at the sheer growth of employment in colleges and universities. It's absurd that has nothing to do with education. Hi it's kinda abramowicz from palm beach great to hear you today.

"Newt's world. Most people know me as the former speaker of the house, but I'm also a historian with a wide range of interests. I enjoy talking with experts in their field and the most interesting people. Across the variety of subjects. I released four episodes of mutual every week with an effort to excite the imagination of our audience, and hopefully you'll learn something new Each time you listen, listen and subscribe for free to its world on the I Heart radio app or wherever you get your podcasts. Welcome back to money since I'm Heather Deaton, Wealth advisor And my guest today is Jenny Combs, associate professor at the college for Financial Planning. We're continuing our conversation about sustainable investing. So, Jenny, let's talk about why is it important? Or why is it more important now? You know, we're hearing so much more about sustainable investing environmental impacts of investing and things of that nature. If you want to share a bit about what you know as to you know, why now? And why is it important? So this is a really great question. And if you Ask a lot of individuals who were involved in sustainable investing. You'll get a bunch of different answers. It's hard to really pin it down. Exactly why it's the most important. Today, more so than ever before, but I'll try and give you a little bit of a context within recent years. So US SIF the Forum for Sustainable and Responsible Investing is a group that was founded in 1984 in Washington, D C there, primarily the group that collects data relating to activity regarding sustainable investing in the United States, and they have presented a bi annual report. On these trends since about 1995. And what you see when you look at the growth factor in the interest in sustainable investing over that period of time. Since 1995 you see a massive spike in growth. That has actually started around 11 4012 and has really taken off exponentially since some in recent years had thought that it was, you know, related to political activity, and that's kind of the reason why it's just all of a sudden become a hot topic in recent years. The reality is it's been growing exponentially since about 2012, and the reason for that is actually due to the fact that when we came out of the financial crisis of 2000 and 2000 and nine It became a way for investors to really hone in on the ethical component of corporations to understand corporate social responsibility better And to hold those in charge of these firms accountable for their actions and look into ways that they can and sure that the public is not being kept in the dark. So firms that were being more transparent were obviously the ones that are performing better on the E S. G. Criteria side of things, so they were becoming much more of an of a topic of interest for investors. It was a way for them to all of a sudden realize. Okay, well, I can avoid unethical companies, and here's a simple way for me to do so. So what it became really was a great way for the financial industry to hone in on risk and find a good way to mitigate risk, And that's really the crux of Using a sustainable strategy is looking like you had mentioned for the sustainability of the the existence of the company itself. If it's just something that's going to last for one person's lifetime probably isn't going to be that great of an investment if you think about it. So it has to withstand the test of time. How does it do that It manages risk? Well, it's ethical. They treat their employees. Well, they treat their customers well, they look into and and factor all those into consideration and they try to avoid. Major catastrophes and controversies that are going to ruin their stock price. Uh, you have to. You don't really have to look at that far back in the future in the past there to see examples of Difficult. Companies that have actually scored pretty low on the S G side of things, and they're all these red flags. And then you know you had to wait for something catastrophic to happen before investors reacted a big one that I can think of. In recent years deck Equifax Back in 2017, you might recall that they announced a huge data breach. They released the private information of millions of Americans and, um, the red flags actually of How they were equipped to handle a data breach were known well a year in advance, thanks to affirm like MSC that conducts extensive VSD research, and they disclose this to the public. They have no contingency plan regarding A data breach. They don't train their employees on what to do. Um, when it comes to privacy for their customers, they just score so low and they released this to the public and it was known to s G investors at the time. But then, a year later, the rest of the investing public found out about it. So you know, it's it's trying to look for Risk in advance and and anticipate that change. So that's a really great example. Because when I think about sometimes the perception in the public about DSG is that it's all about You know, tree hugging when? In fact, the example you gave doesn't really, really at all to environmental. You know, this is in the in a different part of E s g, not the environmental side of it. And like you said, the impact that it had on the nationwide worldwide. Extended beyond just somebody who was wanting to save the climate. Yeah, absolutely. And that's I think the point of thinking about sustainability. We don't just have to Think about the environment. It's obviously a very important piece, but there's a lot of other things that go into the sustainability of a firm if they have horrible leadership, for instance. How the heck are they going to last very long if their CEO is you know, making and creating all these difficult controversies. That's a piece of it as well that falls largely to under the social umbrella. In the E s G factor. It's very much that s that s factor is is just as important to there's a reason there's three pillars. Right? So you know the governor inspector. We usually think of that. For most equity research. Governance has been a huge piece of that, looking at the corporate leadership who's on their board how their board is chosen. But also we can consider the diversity of that board of directors as well. But the other two umbrellas, environmental, obviously anything pertaining to the outside of the world. We tend to focus when we talk about E s G, mostly on the E factor. The S one is really big, too, so people Is really the focus of the s. And and you. You can't have a corporation without people and an understanding that their actions and and false and things like that all go into The Long term sustainability of the company as well. So like fair labor practices, that's one that you know you could think about really pulling at somebody's values. You know, and their own ethics. When you think about which of those pillars or what components of each pillar are important to you as an investor, you know, really looking at at what you value and how you feel people should live and treat each other in the world. And trade the world? Yes, Absolutely. Yeah. So so the asked some component under social is very much that looking at the values of the company itself, but also looking a little bit beyond that, too. In recognizing that It isn't just the company and its employees that get impacted by the actions of the company. It's the stakeholders as well. And when we for those who are different, need a differentiation between shareholder and stakeholder, a shareholder obviously as a part owner of the company, A stakeholder is someone who's maybe a shareholder. But they're also directly impacted by the actions of the company. So if they are living in a community, let's say where there's a There's a factory dumping toxic waste into their rivers. Anyone who lives in a community that drinks water from that river is affected by that company. They are a stakeholder, and therefore they ought to have a say, and they also have The ability to delegitimize the actions of that company. For health purposes. It's very much a fixation to on on how People can go backwards and influence the company to for sure, That's really great insight. Thank you so much, Jenny. We're going to take another short break, and when we return, we.

And i thought that Really was was shaped correctly What theme of unity made sense was almost dwight eisenhower. Kind of speech on the challenge for biden. I think is that the team around him is way to the left of speech. And that's why after the speech is over. He walked back down washing down the pennsylvania avenue and ultimately signing some seventeen Executive orders that afternoon almost which fit to speech. So there's challenge is going to be making a decision.

Think One of the biggest dangers we have India election is seventy states mailing out. Hundred million mail ballots unsolicited. I mean one could understand people requesting A. Ballot. You're in the military you're traveling etc. But unsolicited a hundred, million ballots I mean, it's crazy. Isn't it? What is it is crazy and I did a podcast awhile go by two of them about Nancy Pelosi trying to class. How bill called HR Sixteen, eight hundred, which has page after page basically to change the election law to make it easy to steal. The. The Democrats ideal model you wouldn't have to do you are you wouldn't have to prove where you lived. You could go ahead and both by mail or nobody else verifying that it was good it was you doing it. And of course, you look at a place like. Nevada where the state legislature and the governor changed the rules but three weeks ago to send out a ballots to everybody who exists and the post office sent them a letter saying. You know because there's such a huge turnover in Nevada there are two hundred, thousand names. Who they know have left the state. And so. I think what the Matt at all Democrats and I think what they hope is it will be know mounds of valid city apartment houses and at nursing homes, and the Culinary Union is the strongest Democrat goes musician Nevada and my guess is they'd be thrilled to go out and pick up these ballots and both of To be a real helpers and I think that gives you a flavor of Just what's coming my view is that trump has to win by a big enough margin that they can't feel who says. Speaker Gingrich is not enough of citizens in the election process to crosscheck who has voted and who has. Centered in by by mail I mean there's no crush check. What's right and and I think the states that do that in most states are not going to do that and most of the key swing states that trump has to carry out and do that you go to a place like New York, you know how what a disaster the primary was in man. Whose truck I think nine weeks to count and the losers now suing on the grounds. was still wrong..

"newt" Discussed on The Book Review
"This feels like an episode out of like not just a recent. It's not the recent past. Past the distant past I mean newt is still with us, but this is a very different time for newt, and I think that for many people he started to really appear on People's radars outside of Georgia in the early ninety s with a contract for America, but your book predates that so the book starts in the Nineteen Eighties when you Gingrich. Is this young? Young Congressman who comes from Georgia. He's elected in Nineteen, seventy eight, and any comes to Washington ready to just tear everything down to shake things up to do whatever necessary to help. Republicans become a majority in the House of Representatives which they had not been since nineteen fifty four, and he's intent on a not listening to senior members of the Party and to really. Really taking on the Democrats in ways that they had not been comfortable with, and so he makes a name for himself very quickly, even though he's not part of the leadership in the early eighties. Okay, so you're a history. Professor Newt Gingrich Thought of himself as a history professor and was a history professor, but what exactly did he teach? How did his academic career? Career fit in with his political career well, he received his PhD until Lane. After attending undergraduate school in Emory and Gingrich wrote his dissertation on Belgian colonialism, and he wrote about how and why colonial government had failed to modernize local education and nurture an elite that was capable of sustaining economic growth, and what was remarkable about the dissertation in retrospect, which is what he spent. Spent his academic time on was that he was critical of the design of Belgian policies, rather than on the merits of colonialism, which were much less interest to him, but but that wasn't really his his main focus. I mean as soon as he gets to West Georgia College. That's his first job as a professor. He's deeply uninterested in the academic life I think in. In his first year as a professor, he applies to be the president of the university. He then wants to be share the department and he's impatient with the slowness of academia <hes>. He quickly gains a thirst for the life of politics, and that's really what engages him, and in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy four. He decides to run against the incumbent in his district. District John Flint who's an old southern Democrat. What are nudes politics like growing up? Because he conservative early on, and did his conservative ideology remained consistent throughout his life. Yeah, he comes from a working class family. The family's originally from Harrisburg. His father left his mother while she was pregnant with him, so he didn't have much of a relationship with him. He is raised. primarily by his stepfather, who's in the military, so <hes> Gingrich spends a lot of his youth travelling around. He's what we call an Army Brat, and lives in different places in Europe before the family finally settles in Georgia, which is the final stop? He's a Rockefeller Republican during the nineteen sixties. He he is conservative, but he is interested in Republicans like Nelson Rockefeller and then Richard Nixon who had ambitions of building a big Republican coalition as FDR had done for Democrats in the Nineteen Thirties. He doesn't really make a hard right. Right, turn until about nineteen seventy five I'm what prompts that well. He ran for the first time unsuccessfully in nineteen, seventy, four against flint. Then he's getting ready to run against Flint again in nineteen seventy six, and he meets some people associated with the conservative movement like Paul Way Rick. Who's running these camps for up and coming Republicans and he like many young Republicans starts to become enamored with what's this conservative movement that's bubbling up in America and talking about the need to dismantle government to be much more aggressive on national. National Security and this is when he starts to shift to what will eventually be the Reagan Revolution? Would you say that his guiding principles were firmly aligned with Reagan conservatism, or were there differences there? There were differences. <hes> Gingrich for example is much more concerned about environmental issues <hes> even in the early nineteen eighties than a lot of Reagan Nights, are he? He actually takes those kinds of policies much more seriously, but generally he lines up by the time he's in the house. He believes in tax cuts. He believes in deregulation. Deregulation, he believes importantly in a very muscular approach to fighting the Soviet Union and to fighting allies in places like Central America so though there are differences between him, and and some of the hard core inner circle of the Reagan administration. Generally they line up pretty well

"Noticed a parade of newt's risking their lives to cross a small country road and reach the lake on the other side she knew then that their survival was up to her if you touch something you have a connection and you don't want that beautiful little creature to be run over by some stupid car here's the story on nocturne for every listen to podcasts I spoke with my colleague international business reporter Peter Goodman about the economic fallout of the corona virus so Peter what is stage three of this crisis look like the first thing that happens is the U. S. federal reserve this is the central bank steps in in early March and the cut interest rates pretty dramatically to encourage commercial activity to borrow money to spend money to invest a to make the economy move and that's supposed to provide some relief stock markets lover when interest rates go down right only in this case it doesn't work out like that more not so initially markets respond the way they're supposed to I mean it investors on Q. say aha the fed has lowered rates that's good news for stocks people are gonna bite so they buy and then very soon there after a volatile session on Wall Street today the markets are down the neighbor of the neighbor down again so let's take a look for just the market's performance again seven hundred ninety three points lower on the day out today after the fed cut rates this morning because of the corona virus if you why would that be why would cutting interest rates which is a time tested financial solution in a crisis not work here why were investors as you said seeing through it as ineffective because this crisis is unusual now it's useful to think about the economy in terms of the demand side and supply side he explained yet so let's pretend that the entire global economy is a big shopping mall right the supply side is all the stuff that ends up in the shops at the mall the demand side is you you show up at the mall you're interested in buying a new iPad maybe you need a new pair of running shoes whatever right how flush are you feeling that's the amount of demand in the economy well the central bank and the traditional economic Playbox can deal with the demand side it you can put more money in your pocket maybe through a tax cut right maybe through a lowering of interest rate which makes you feel better about running up a credit card balance or you know financing in some fashion so he can put you in the mood to go spend more can boost demand the traditional playbook can't do much if at all about a supply shock and what we have now is a supply shock we have a situation where the iPads aren't showing up at the mall because the factories in China are shut down and they're not making him their art flights that are connecting China to the rest of the world truck drivers are freed to haul their freight across borders because they're worried about getting sick so the fed can drop interest rates all at once and it doesn't touch that supply side problem moreover there is on top of this is significant demand side problem you may not want to go to the mall even if you are flush even if there is an interest rate cut even if there is a targeted tax cuts that encourages you to go shop and you know what the government probably doesn't want you to go right now either because policy is mostly properly centered on how do we prevent people from contracting a lethal virus so that means that this traditional playbook of central banks dropping interest rates governments using their budgetary power to spend money in a way where they try to spur economic activity most of that stuff just doesn't work in this situation and that's what the markets have been discovering and it's filled them with fear it's given them a sense that companies are being hit by this pandemic is gonna hurt their earnings it's going to make stock values go down and there just isn't much that the authorities can do about that what the fed is essentially doing is knowing that their tools don't really work they're using whatever tools they've got they're giving us a demonstration of their willingness to jump in and do something extraordinary and the markets divine from Matt the fed is really worried that things are worse than we thought that sorry to use another metaphor it's as if the fed is saying the world's on fire except the trader seat that the fire department doesn't have any water and this is it a realization that is not restricted to the United States the bank of England drops rates the following week significantly the European central bank steps up their bond purchases a couple of days after that which is a way of driving down interest rates and in both of those cases stock markets globally plummet and it becomes abundantly clear that investors are concluding that all of this action is just revealing the impotence of the tools in this particular instance I mean they were basically kind of stock right now economically speaking through this pandemic or are there things that governments in the US and Europe and Asia can do to try to basically stabilize the economy for the next few weeks and months well it's gonna be very difficult for governments to stabilize the economy but there are lots of things the government can and should be doing to diminish the pain for the people who are caught in harm's way the people are losing their jobs companies are going to fail there's gonna be a lot of economic pain and people have a hard time paying their bills that's the time where government step in with things like this expanded sick pay policy that's being discussed in the states in Europe and in the U. K. so when people can't get to their jobs they don't find themselves without paychecks this is a time for expanded unemployment benefits this is the time to boost health care system so that we have the capacity to treat people the problem is that wall that stuff should happen and some of it is happening it doesn't address the fundamental reality that this crisis is beyond the traditional tools that we have at our disposal to team in economic crisis this is a public health emergency people are dying policy is appropriately focused on limiting the spread of this virus which by the way is what's best for the global economy the global economy is going to continue to feel pressures to see business is in trouble so long as there is legitimate fear about the spread of this pandemic there's no getting around the fact that the only way to try to limit the spread of the virus is to do further damage to the economy when we cancel trade shows.

"Good Morning America. This is the cats round table. John Cats Matiz here. What's going on in the world? Well as a lot going on in the world and We're calling upon one of the smartest guys I know former speaker at House. An author a Just knows about a little bit about everything we have with us this morning. Newt Gingrich Give Mornings Mr Gingrich. How are you? I'm doing great and it's always fun to talk with you? Well we we missed you. Talked in a while and the world has changed in the last couple of weeks in this virus. Is it being played up by the cable? Companies and the networks or is it real quick. What's how do you see it from the forty-one thousand foot level? Well I think first of all the way that Chinese dictatorship handled it maximize people's fears because nobody trusted their information and apparently for the first three or four weeks they were actually punishing the people in Wuhan. Who were telling them that. This is a real problem so I think that created sense of suspicion as a historian. I think this is a very manageable problem in my mind. It is not dramatically more dangerous than the flu. If you're healthy It'll be like catching a cold For older people already have some other condition. I think that's where the biggest fatality rate is occurring and it looks like for example The people who are nursing homes had a very high mortality rate but overall worldwide. We're on a very small numbers ninety. Eight percent of the deaths have been in China. We have legitimate concerns of any time you get a brand new virus. You have to pay attention because you don't know what it's GonNa Mutate into. You don't know how much it could spread. But I thought the Center for Disease Control. This week was way too strong and what they said in the way they said it. I. I don't think at this moment that it's a crisis. I actually think the economic repercussions of the way. The Chinese government has reacted where they've quarantined entire cities and think about five ten fifteen million people Being told you can't leave your town Factories have closed down. Production is dramatically. Cut The reason that affects us is fair number of spare parts and other things come from China and right now auto companies for example Even even coca-cola which one of its major sweetness from China maybe face with a supply chain problem and I think that's going to lead people to scratch their head and begin to think about maybe moving a lot of their supply chain back home. You may see in sourcing. Replace outsourcing is the the big topic the next couple of years you gotta pay attention to it. It's significant but it's a long way right now from the crisis. Now I agree with you. One hundred percent because if I was a CEO of a worldwide company. I certainly have multiple sources. Not just one country. And you don't want to be put out of business by just one country. Washington why are the Democrats Republicans arguing trump put out two and a half billion dollars immediate money off towards the virus and Chuck? Schumer says we should be eight billion. These guys can argue forever but everything yes I think. Democrats wake up every morning and they know two things the hey donald trump and they wanna give away as much as they can. Those are the only two things they know and so whatever. Trump does trumpet trumpet. Set up eight billion Schumer. Be saying you know. It should have been sixteen. It's just it's amazing to watch it but it is where we are and anybody who watched the South Carolina. Primary debate knows that these people are are almost melting down and I I wrote a newsletter this week that through the contrast between trump in India with one hundred and twenty thousand people filling the largest stadium in the country And these people behaving like seventh graders yelling at each other breaking in each other. I thought that was a big hit to the Democratic Party Childish and how bad their candidates who are in Charleston at the debate so huge contrast between the president and the first lady who are doing wonderful job Malania were a Liberal Democrat. Right now she would be rivaling. Jackie Kennedy in the magazine covers etc. But because she's you know Mrs Donald Trump All of the the women's publications are afraid to give her the kind of credit. She's worth but she's does. I think an amazing job overseas. We've got Super Tuesday coming up in a few days any Any gut feeling well. I think what people don't realize yet and frankly. I can't do the smarter than me about math so you may be able to do this. The way the Democratic Party rules are there very different than the Republicans the Republicans had a deal. Where after a certain date in March everything winter take off. See if you got thirty five percent that you came in first you get all the delegates. The Democrats have a proportional representation. So Yeah Thirty. Five percent of the vote. Theoretically you should get thirty five percent of delegates but they have a twist to it that makes it really complicated and that is if you get less than fifteen percent your votes disappear so you can have Bernie Sanders in theory at say thirty five percent and everybody else at fourteen and he would get one hundred percent of the delegates. I don't know if that makes sense it. It's IT'S A it's a weird twist and so my my hunch is that the sanders is going to end up on Super Tuesday with a lot more delegates than people expect. Hillary looks like he's going out and attacking set a sanders and Does that go back to that original meeting that Bloomberg had would hillary you pick no I. I think that Hillary and bill who's also been saying things I think what's happening is. Democrats are beginning to wake up and realize they could actually have sanders as the nominee and if they have an avowed democratic socialist as the nominee they could easily lose the house of Blues. Three or four seats in the Senate. There may be a nightmare. And I think that it's only now beginning to sink in. How real this is. There is a report which may or may not be accurate things. I've been looking at carefully. That Biden soon as a little better. The debate given I may have heard Sanders a little bit but if sanders continues momentum you're GONNA see every traditional Democrat assault him because they're not only worried about him losing. They're worried about him. Losing in a way which finds the Democratic Party And and cost them the house and the idea Kevin McCarthy. The Republican leader replacing Pelosi just terrifies Democrats. They ended up next year with trump elected And with Speaker McCarthy in with majority leader Mitch McConnell in the Senate I think the Democrats just don't well know what to do with themselves. President trump made a visit last week to India in the overall sense things worldwide. How SIGNIFICANT IS INDIA TO The world economy or to the United States economy. Well India is actually passing China as the largest country in the world so it's by definition a big player it has a As a country that huge extremes between very poor people who live on fun on small plots out in rural India and very very wealthy Indians They have One of the things that made Prime Minister Mody so successful was that when he was the governor of the state of Asia out he really built a very powerful entrepreneurial high tech society and that part of India now is very competitive and very modern. Because they're so big in terms of population They're they're a player. We hear a lot about because they frankly are the counterbalance to China in the Indian Ocean. we think it's very important for us to be their ally and I think it was very interesting. Very typical trump is a businessman that he comes back home with a three billion dollar contract for helicopters And every time he goes somewhere he's picking up another con another contractor to so he's he's sort of becoming America's best salesman in terms of job creation. And that's good years where you we do need a salesman once in a while. Speaking Gingrich. I understand another book about a month. Yeah we burnside March show. In fact I'll be in New York and hope to see you and be with you It's called shake down It is about a a Russian Iranian plots to use a submarine to set off a nuclear weapon underwater near Washington and Baltimore to create as soon. Nami is actually based on studies that both the US and the Russians did during the cold or to see whether it was feasible. And I think people will find fascinating read of just got a great review from Qurqus which is a big Book Review magazine and they. They loved it. They said it's a it's a great read. It's very exciting. Very dynamic so shakedown is the name of it so you can pre-order it at places like Barnes and noble and Amazon and. I'm very proud of it. Is I think people are gonNA think it's really a fun and interesting. Read hand has a lot of insights about both technology and about the Iranians and the Russians. While I look I look forward to you a Speaker Gingrich. Thank you so much for coming on and thank you take care when go back to Italy. I understand that Italy is as a little bit of scares going around. Well they do but my wife's Basset of the Vatican and we owe it to the folks on the embassy team to to be with them and I think everything will work out alright but you know I think. People sobered by and Being Italy They tend to get pretty pretty emotional. Absolutely Speaker Gingrich. Thank you so much for coming on catch roundtable and let's catch up again real soon. All look forward to this round table will be right back..

"King of will grow out of it and newt was asking if you're gonna be visiting that at all I would suspect I will hi probably haven't missed one in the last seven years and I always figured out a way to get up there for a day as long as we didn't play during that time no the NC double a put in a date with you know looking the bluegrass is placed right before that date period and so I'm really looking for an opportunity JJ at some point over there and and again our team will be gone so would be nice and I think starts on Wednesday and you know run through the weekend so I'm looking forward to a great tournament looking a little aspen hill at Fairdale for many many years and it's it's always a lot of quality teams of quality players a stroll through as well Pat wants to know do you feel your team's identity is where you want it to be yet well I think we're getting there I I think there were fourteen that as opposed to years ago we had that I think last year according to Ken palm and all the statistical data with the twenty fifth best defense in the country years ago and really you know with a lot of guys had never heard of it back on and where we sit today were one third in the country I believe behind Texas tech and Virginia and so you know we're we're getting there and I think that you know we we have to understand that if we hang our hat on that on the floor we make it tough for teams to score they will be in every game we play regardless of our office goes will continue to get better on offense but I I do think that we have guys are bought in in some guises gotten so much better from a year ago and I will continue to try to be the team to give you one shot that said this is a football readable tune and you have the sense of players in office a player so certainly it all fits together but but I think for the most part you have been cordoned overall but more pleased with your defense consistently throughout the year then your office yeah that would that would go without saying I think we've had several games often simply where I think we were moving it we got the shots we wanted we were playing together and you know we we didn't do that in a few games but I thought we took a huge step for the other night which was good to see and hopefully we carry that on Wednesday and continue get better on that on the floor but you know they're so inter connected you know as you mentioned it's not football so often that it if you're willing to go that extra mile and do whatever it takes to to win the possession defensive and if you really connected on the offense of and and and I think that we were extremely connected against eastern Kentucky we were against Michigan in Pittsburgh really the only one off I was really Texas tech in the know how state scrimmage which will be our first time playing together so this season is a long one and being able to captivate our guys attention figure out ways to improve our team is very very important and I and I really believe we have the right guys in the locker room they want to have just a special season so we're all continue to get better trust me on that one not that your soul is planning means but for the most part did you think you played defensively well enough to win the Texas tech came a problem for more on the other side yeah we are often stomach and really disappointing really came out of no where we knew you know with a couple days crap what Texas tech was going to do how they were going to play and you know that when you start off the game in Europe seventeen you have three or four three on Tuesday to all ones you'll convert any of them that was that was alarming and then we start taking quick shots and and just data and rattled and and so it's good our guys get to learn from it you know we have to be better as a coaching staff and identify that that happens early on in the in the game and we will but again that's something that we had seen in nine games and to respond that way on that stage it was disappointing but again it was our tenth game of the year and I'd rather you know learn from a loss and figure it out move forward to get better and I don't think any team in this country going undefeated Madison Square Garden you just set the stage it does feel like you're on a big theater stages do you think there was any Madison Square Garden items involved in that I'm sure and we talked about it but talking about it being about it live in about it two different things and you know hopefully those type experiences of harden our guys in in and get them to understand that we have to be the same team regardless of whether whether when the keeper center Madison Square Garden Greensboro Coliseum you name it from Dennis could you please explain playing from inside out sure I made some teams don't subscribe to that philosophy some teams you know the first shot they get they take and we always want to be a team that figures out how to get the ball within the line from the three second line and specifically an area we call the box which is a little bit it's like cutting the lane in hand news radio eight forty WHAS Louisville Jordan who had a couple of you know post baskets the other day doing certain Sam as he gets more more opportunity but are bigger wings that's another way to get it there you can get it there to set place that we get lay ups on and you can get it through offense of rebound and so we we want to be a team that tries to get the ball in to that area and if we do that generally good teams flocked to the ball they converge and then when you spray the ball out much better looks you also get when a shot goes up defenders flying out and not necessarily the right position Kantakouzene out off the offense of glass in so that's why we always want to be the team that tries to go inside out and again I I don't I think sometimes people think that equates to just post touches and that's part of it but that's not all of you you often seem to get good results when you can get the ball and a lot of time just to joining sudden right about the free throw line area and from there you can drop it down we can spread out he's got that could range shot that's kind of a you get there you can be a lot of options work from don't flush against his own when teams on us we want to get the ball in what we call the logo area which is at area right below the foul line were generally you know conference logos are and so we really stress that certainly against his own defenses high times we want you know man to man one more goal gets man we always want the ball hit around the line alright we'll take a break come back and get more question for coach Mike Carter basketball familiar to live G. college hello I'm Jeff one hundred you
