Fresh update on "obama administration" discussed on News, Traffic and Weather

"For Crossfire. Hurricane season continues The Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday held its second oversight hearing in relation to the cross fire hurricane investigation that FBI investigation centered on whether Trump campaign officials colluded with Russia to affect the 2016 presidential election. Republican Chairman Lindsey Graham asked former deputy Attorney General Sally Yates Whether she would have signed off on a warrant to monitor Trump campaign official Carter Page If she knew what she knows now, No, not that it contained incorrect information. I certainly wouldn't Thank you. And do you agree with me? It did contain incorrect information. I know that now based on the horror, which that's all I'm trying to say, currents your foot's on this issue, obviously because of the political ramifications of a president and his campaign. Being monitored. It is a big concern for Republicans. But Democrats say many Democrats say this is exaggerated. Not a big deal. What what say you Well, what wondering. Linda Grahame, who is a lawyer on the Republicans, in general, have been kind of glossing over is the issue of of, uh oh. Why was the Obama administration or Sally Yates interested in Ah Carter Page and the dealings of Ah, Fline behind the scenes with the Russians? It looks suspicious. How much more to FBI people need but suspicious, suspicious acts on every turn. Gates or rather of film was trying to conceal his actions and you didn't have to be aiming at electoral espionage. And in order to be I understand in what Yates was or what she was talking to Russians about And I think that's really all it is. But the the other scenario that this was some nefarious act out of the Oval Office, which President Trump has been trying to push a vessel to be guiding the grands questions. You know, Matt it There's a legitimate point there isn't there that if you're hanging around is called a page was with S P r. Officers in New York and Michael friend you're talking to the Russian ambassador. You might expect that those activities would ping on the national security apparatus radar and should pink pass notes. Yeah. And look, this is one of I'm glad just the question because it gets to one of the aspects of this whole story that I think has not got enough attention, and that is I don't make the leap that this entire thing from the very beginning. It was concocted, right? I think I think in the early stages we're talking, You know, second half of 2016 and intelligence officials I really thought there was something there. Right trumps public statements were strange. Papadopoulos doing these meetings with strange Carter Page sitting next to Putin at a dinner was strange and doing rt television right there these sort of individual points and they were trying to see if they're all connected and what they all lead to What I think true, though, is at some point, it became a matter of faith. An article of faith for for the Obama administration at the end, and then the Clinton campaign. With the steel dossier with how that was sourced on then, with the effort to create the Mueller investigation, and so Yates's testimony, first of all really undermined, Jim Comey had several different places. His judgment, his decisionmaking etcetera, but it gets to these questions that we still don't really have good answers to. And that is this early January meeting in the Oval Office with President Obama and President Vice President Biden the question of whether exactly how involved Obama and Biden were the question of whether the Logan Act was really you know that the chief way they were trying to go after this. And Yates did did try to sort of explain Some of those things in ways may be that different from Republican views on these questions, But this hearing is not the end of it. Right. We still have the Durham report. There is some speculation that may have already been indictments. ATT. This point. If not, there may be some very soon and we're all waiting. For the Derma Vortis to show whether there were criminal laws broken here by whom And for what reason? And, of course, the continuing weaponization of all of this stuff from four years ago, they're trying to use it. Benghazi updated. Ah, let's remember what this was about. Kislyak was being monitored because as a foreign A ambassador, and it turns up these phone calls with Flynn during this interregnum and Flynn is lying to vice president. Pence and Flynn is covering up what he's doing, and he's lying to the FBI. Those are really acts that deserve to be considered. And they were. There was nothing nefarious about this. They weren't spying on the Trump administration. This isn't an effort. To make the Mueller investigation looked like it was bogus. From the start. The Mueller investigation was initiated when President fired Jim Comey, and that's what happened and And Trump was under investigation during the campaign, as was Hillary and Comey Let the world know Hillary was under investigation. Nobody was allowed to know that Trump was under investigation. We might have had a different election if the voters went to the polls knowing two candidates were being investigated by the FBI. So turning this around and making it seem like Trump is some terrible victim here you know is is bizarre at your thoughts. I always take what General Flynn did. Obama expelled 60 Russian diplomats. In the interregnum. As Trump was about to take the office of president. And Flynn, his national security advisor designate, picked up the phone and called Kiss Flack. Obviously a phone call that's being monitored and said, Hold your jets and don't do anything stupid. Because we're going to be in.

Biden says Trump executive order is 'a reckless war on Social Security'

"Trump has signed a series of executive orders to help Americans hurt by covert 19. White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow tells ABC is this week that restarting enhanced unemployment benefits won't be complicated. I don't think that'd be a huge delay. Labor Department has been working with states. States of the ones that process the federal benefits before, so I don't see any reason why I'd be all that difficult. Most of their systems have been upgraded, but Labor Department will be deeply involved in helping them at Trump opponent, Joe Biden reacted to the president's move. Joe Biden slammed President Trump's executive order to defer payment of payroll taxes through the end of the year for Americans making less than about $100,000 annually. Thing, it would undermine the entire financial footing of Social Security. The Hill reports that in a statement, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee went on to say that unlike the 2012 payroll tax plan by the Obama administration Trump's order does not appear to include protections or guarantees that the Social Security trust fund will be made whole by then added that Trump was laying out his roadmap to cutting Social Security.

Former Education Secretary John King on the Trump power transition

"10th Secretary of Education is our special guest. John. I want to pick up where you just left off. Because I think it's important Transitions are important American government of the Trump administration transition for a lot of reasons, some of which I outlined in my book, Mr Trump's Wild Ride was uneven to say the best to say that it's best most charitable Because of decisions. People inside that transition made people who got thrown out of that transition process. It was very, very uneven, but the meeting's nevertheless occurred between the outgoing administration and the incoming administration. Give us more context and specificity about this conversation with the incoming Trump administration about a pandemic. Well, the idea Wass and this is something that the Bush administration did with the company Obama administration and president aggressive effort to do that's right. That's right, because Continuity of government is important and you want to make sure the incoming administration is prepared to deal with any eventuality. And President Obama was very clear from the very from the day after the election that we were going to make sure to have a smooth transition as possible. And we began preparing for that even before the election, And then once the election happened are our task was to have a very smooth finish. Unfortunately, The Trump Administration was slow to assemble their transition teams there was to get people to the agencies. This meeting of the Joint Cabinet meeting happened just a few days before they're not gracious, And the idea was at that point to make sure that, uh, Cabinet members were briefing each other on how to deal with these potential crises. And what some of the issues are that Come on. We covered a wide range of subjects is multiple hours. We're sitting in pairs each with our cabinet counterpart. And one of the topics of discussion Wass. How do you deal with the pandemic and What implications would've pandemic have or every agency And during that time secretary of the boss and I talked about how he dealt with colon and each one and wine and some of the implications for schools of a pandemic. But the idea Wass that they would be ready to put those plans into action if they were faced with These kinds of disasters and in fact, the discussion was about a respiratory illness that that was a pandemic that started overseas and how you prepare for that, and we talked about The urgency of getting personal protective equipment, the urgency of getting testing and place the need tohave queer science based communication with the public. They just didn't do those things. Any sense why it's hard to get inside of Ah, heads of the current interest and will observe that a large share of the people who are in that meeting are no longer in the street. All right, But you could also get a sense of a meeting like that, whether or not people are interested or following or devoted to that particular. Task. Look, it didn't it didn't feel Then there was a ton of urgency in the room about these issues. But this look, ultimately the president was responsible. And AH term president set a tone from the very beginning that was dismissive of the pandemic. You know, he said, Oh, this is just going to go away. They're very few cases. It's all under control. And missed a crucial period of time. To get in place the structures necessary for personal protective equipment, prevent the laters for testing and contact tracing system. But the tragedy is Even after those mistakes and seeing the cost in human lives, they still aren't addressing those fundamental issues were still behind. Virtually all of our international appears in dealing with this and that

"The whole thing that gets me here is the economy would have taken a far bigger plunge, but for the strength that it was in prior to All of the shutdowns thanks to the Trump administration's pro growth policies going into it, and I think that's what I think has been lost in all of this. If we look at where we were before the shutdown, and now where we are just kind of emerging, And yet, once again, their calls toe continue to shut down their calls to mean A ZAY was talking earlier in the show, There are calls to shut down again for anywhere from 4 to 6 to eight months. That would just be devastating to our economy. If we did this again, If we were stupid enough to shut down this economy again. I'm not entirely sure we did recover at all. Like a Joe Biden's elected that calls for the shutdowns. Ln November election, November 3rd or fourth. Yeah, exactly After that. That's when the cause for the shutdowns the land If he loses, you know, though, I how long these Democratic governors can risk having their state shut down and you've got a governor Cuomo out there, begging rich New Yorkers who've gone to Connecticut has gone domain on the Florida Come back to the States even said he'd cook dinner for him because The 1% of the taxpayers in New York the richest pay 50% of the taxes and there are leaving so you can't keep these the state government shut down, you know, in perpetuity, California is going to have to open up New York's gonna have to open up. I think they're just going to do everything they can to make sure they can wait until after the election because opening up would help Donald Trump. Also, Americans help people in their states. But I think that secondary in their minds at this point Well, Andy, I thank you again for joining us this evening. We've posted the link to your recent Fox News op ed on the John Whitmore show Facebook page. I also noticed a You know you've got the new book out. Can you tell us a little bit about it?

We can He tell us a little bit about in the time we have left? Sure it is. It's a pamphlet, so it's It's easy. It's an easy read. It's about 40 pages, and it's about how it would be an incredible mistake to do what we did during the Obama administration. It would be an incredible Miss Take to focus on government to focus on European that big stimulus spending bill. You remember right promised that unemployment wouldn't go above 8% well, one of the 8% when they passed it. That was February 2009 and it stayed above 8% for the next 43 months or 3.5 years. This is the wrong approach the right approach to get people back to work to get the economy back on track was Donald Trump's have put approach of reducing taxes, regulation, focusing on domestic energy and entering into these America for straight agreement, So that's what it's about. Divisions. The details gives you everything you might wanna cite any of your friends try and argue with you about, you know Obama with some kind of economic success or an economic genius. He was neither Andi. I hope people will take a look at it well, like I said, it's getting America back to work. It's available on Amazon. Now you're available.

Wendy Osefo on the Black Lives Matter protests, and the 2020 election

"I'm Jim Taylor skinner, and this is the electorate. On this episode. A have a conversation with Wendy Osafo when he is a political commentator and a professor of education at Johns. Hopkins. University, she also served on the Obama Administration's anti-poverty initiative when he joins me to talk about everything from the current political climate to the recent black lives matter protests. We also discussed recent polling of the twenty twenty presidential election, and of course, many many failings of the trump administration. So without further ADO, here's my conversation with Wendy Assefa. Welcome to the broadcast. Thank you for having me. I really wanted to talk to you about this moment in history because I saw a tweet, the other day that really got my attention I think it was from Congresswoman Anna Presley and she said that the civil rights movement didn't in it didn't end and that we're living right now it's ongoing and I think that that's pretty you know accurate what's happening in the streets with black lives matter protests you know what do you think this moment actually means I think this moment right now is a defining moment in our country. And our nation I think that what we have to realize is that without cameras, this has been the backdrop of the lives of black people for years is just so happens that the death of George Floyd was videotaped but this has happened so many times in enough is enough I was told people you know I'm so happy that black lives matter has become a battle cry that people more aware about now in twenty twenty but I remember marching when black lives matters started before was even Hashtag with the death of Trayvon Martin it was the death and killing trayvon Martin that. Ignited the hash black lives matter and so I say all that to say, you know the civil rights movement was a time that we look to as a historic time society and we came through that as a nation but it hasn't ended because just evolved in different ways, and that's what people have to understand and I'm just so excited to see different faces, different races, different backgrounds really fighting now because it's going to take our nation to come together as one in order for us to end systemic racism. Now you're absolutely right it has evolved right? That's the perfect word. For it and when I think about you know what you just said marching when Trayvon Martin was murdered a movement was kind of in its infancy. But what I think is really interesting now is the reaction from conservatives now that people are marching around the world for black lives matter they their reactions were really extreme Ryan, I mean it's like splashed holy water on them like what do you think that they think black lives matter actually means what does it mean to them? You hear people saying like not in my town you're not gonNA bring black lives matter into Maya. Town. Yeah I think is really interesting in the way I. Answer. This question may actually be controversial I think that they are very clear what black lives matter means I think they are very clear but black lives matter stands for, but they don't want to accept what black lives matters means because if they do that means that they are accepting that this country's inherently racist and that's the truth and as uncomfortable truth we are saying black lives matter because black lives are the ones that are under attack were saying black lives matter because the statistics show that black and Brown children in schools are treated differently. That's why we're seeing black. Lives matter but you see it's not just black lives. Matter is black lives matter because black lives have been treated as less than for so many years in this country. So I think that conservatives are fully aware of what this means I think that is willful ignorance for them to say, no black lives with not only to accept that is not the Hashtag that the issue is the premise of the Hashtag doesn't issue and I think that when we're having these conversations with people, these are people who are elected Congress people they're pretty smart. You know they're pretty erudite nature, and so you know these are the same. Individuals who say because they're conservatives that a baby's life matters at the beginning of Jess station. You don't have to come out of the womb for your life to matter but soon as your created your life matters and therefore they're against abortion. So if they're able to understand that a baby's life matters at the beginning of creation than I'm pretty sure that they're competent enough to understand that black lives matter because black lives are the ones under

"America is the great Selena Zito. She writes for The New York Post. A bunch of other folks, too. She's based in Pittsburgh. She's great. She's been researching and reporting the Trump Coalition. Those folks in Middle America voted Trump in nearly four years ago, so Selina recently shared some of her findings. In an interview with my colleague, Sebastian Gorka, Let's pick it up with Selina talking about the Trump Coalition. One thing I will tell you, and I think this is really, really important. And that is when I wrote my book was Brad Todd and 2016. The great revolt. Uh, it was about the coalition that is Trump Coalition Republican Conservative Popular Coalition. We pulled people afterwards. Only Trump identified voters in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Uh, the conscience and we We asked them is you tell family member of a friend or a pollster? That you were going to vote for a jump? This is gonna blow your mind. This is Falcon Polled. What were your findings about those 34% 34% of Trump. I self identified voters so that they're not a family member, a friend or a poster that they were going to vote for him. Now 2016 will be compared to what we're experiencing right now. Suspect that number is higher. So this is this is what I I pause it always. But I'm not on the ground like you might. My contention is the following the idea that the the silent majority that swept this man into the office three Oval Office four years ago. Has shrunken in the last four years. I find absolutely impossible to imagine you're verifying that for me correct. Yeah. I mean, Anna, totally. We're not driving around. That's what I find is that sort of the mental conflict as a journalist, right? Because I have to work with. I have to work with data. I have to work with reporting. The data is not matching up with the reporting, and that's What's very similar to what I experienced 2016. So talk to us about what you're seeing in your industry because the remarkable thing is, I think the silent majority is larger. I thinkyou're anecdotal evidence is part of that story. But your colleagues Are worse than they've ever. Bean. There is no recognition of the failure of the mainstream media to understand what happened in 2016 and to actually make an attempt not to be political. Is that what you are seeing from inside the sausage factory? A hotel. I live in Pittsburgh, so I've never really around most of my colleagues. Here's what I will tell you, And here's what I understand, and it's not just in my profession, but it's in all of the sort of cultural curator is in our country Corporation, sports Entities Entertainment and also the media. People that work that work in these places tend to come from the same sort of 10 wealthy zip codes in our country on DH they don't share. They don't have the same sort of shared experiences those cultural touchdowns with the people that they're often reporting on that live in places like Kenosha, Wisconsin or Bucks County, Pennsylvania or East Liverpool, Ohio. Right. They don't have those. They don't know people like that. So it is very difficult to understand that and that's why you see corporations in sports and cities and ever tamers. Deciding to go on the side of the left because that's who they know that they lived that so they socialize with those of their friends. They don't know people who may be pro life. They don't know people who may own a done. They don't know people who might sit in a pew every Sunday show. They're not understanding the people they're reporting on, and I think that's what they can to get thing sideways when we're talking about Trump and or the coalition that Republicans conservative coalition that put him into office. Now, as you heard from Hugh's interview with Senator Tom Cotton, There is a lot to be concerned about in a Biden presidency for nearly four years now, President Trump has been busy trying to rebuild our military following eight years of neglect under Obama and Joe Biden, those eight years took a toll on military readiness. So Hugh you it turned to the chair of the Senate Armed Services Committee, James in off the senior senator. From Oklahoma. Now, let's go to the military. Generally, President Obama was not. I tell him it was the worst president for the military. Nobody believes me. And I point out that President Trump and you have been rebuilding the military. Can you contrast those two people don't understand. A lot of people don't believe in. When I talked to group. They're not really into this thing. They don't realize that during the Obama administration during the last five years, he reduced the military down by 25% We're talking about Budget now keep in mind During that same time Russia increased, there's 34% China increased. There's 83% and that's the reason they got ahead of us. That's the reason that we found ourselves in a situation where we didn't have the things that they had, and we had to really get busy. That was a serious, serious situation, so we now have corrected that we are.

"A new study says the enforcement of rules protecting nursing home residents from receiving anti psychotic drugs has declined during the Trump administration. NPR's Nina Jaffe says the findings come from Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee. The study found that citations for the unnecessary use of anti psychotic drugs and nursing homes declined by 22% during the first half of the Trump administration. Such citations increased by 200% during the latter part of the Obama presidency. The study also found that during the Trump administration, 1/10 of the nursing home cited for the most serious violations were not find it all. The Trump Administration has rolled back a number of nursing home regulations enacted during the Obama administration.

No one is above the law, and that includes President Trump. If it determines that we lead to impeachment, or if he ends up in jail, So be it. I almost said that he should be in jail.

She has deep experience as an ambassador and in national security, but not as a candidate. NPR's Don Gani reports. Susan Rice has a ready answer when asked about the possibility of being Joe Biden's pick for vice president, whether I'm his running mate, or I'm a door knocker. I don't mind this was on NBC's Meet the press, and I'm going to do everything I can. To help get Joe Biden elected him to help him succeed is president. Her resume is deep. Rhodes scholar, State Department ambassador to the U. N. Obama's national security advisor, rise His vice presidential prospects gain strength as calls for Biden to name an African American woman grew during this summer's black lives matter. Protests And she is known to be tough. This is from an appearance on NPR last fall, My dad had a mantra that comes from his experience growing up in the segregated South, and in the twenties and thirties and Serving and segregated Air Force A Tuskegee during World War two. Hey, always told me and my brother don't take crap off of anybody. Of all the potential Biden running mates. None can match rice on foreign policy. But to many her inclusion on the short list is curious because that skill set duplicates Biden's own strength. He has deep foreign policy experience from his decades in the Senate. There is one big gap in Rice's resume. She has never held elective office never been a candidate, veteran Democratic strategist Patti Solis Doyle says in 2020. That particular shortcoming may not matter at all, given how campaigning has changed under the pandemic. No arousing public speeches, no handshakes at the local diner That's not happening anymore. And so that skill is not as valuable as it was, Say four years ago. The pandemic also complicates the vetting process. Those one on one get acquainted meetings between Biden and potential nominees will certainly be different. But Biden already knows Rice well, including from hours and hours together in the Oval Office during the Obama years. If there's one person that knows that Susan Rice has been in the room and can handle the pressure, it's Joe Biden. Joe Joe Biden has seen it firsthand. One certain line of attack Republicans will use against Rice. If she's on the ticket is Benghazi. That's the 2012 assault on a U. S diplomatic compound in Libya that killed four Americans. When it happened Rice one on TV and called the Assault an act of spontaneous violence that was later shown to be incorrect. All these years later, it remains a rallying cry for Republicans. In fact, here is Secretary of State Mike Pompeo just this month talking about Rice and Benghazi on Fox News. She went on and made up a story about a video in a protest when she knew full well that this was a terror attack. In the end, multiple GOP led congressional enquiries into Benghazi uncovered no wrongdoing by the Obama administration. Susan Rice, meanwhile, is looking ahead early this year. She was on a panel and caution that if Democrats retake the White House, they'll need to respect institutions and show respect to their opponents. There will be

Supreme Court upholds exemptions to Obamacare contraceptive mandate

"Provision of Obama care in a seven to vote, the justices ruled the Trump Administration is allowed to give employers exemptions from covering women's birth control. If they have religious or moral objections. That coverage had been mandated under the affordable care act Well, joining us to talk about it's Robert Barnes, Supreme Court reporter for The Washington Post. Always good to talk to you. Thanks so much for being here. Thank you elaborate here on what the justices have ruled. Well, this is about whether employers have to provide no cost contraceptive care to their female employees, and this has been a long running legal battle. Nine years in the making. With at one point the Obama administration on one side saying yes, they do and making very limited exceptions for churches and other religious organizations. The court has been involved in this without making very many decisions. And now when the Trump administration came in, it reversed that and broaden the exemptions to include more religious organizations and those who have moral Objections to providing this kind of contraceptive care, and our listeners may remember the high profile hobby lobby case from a few years back. So how did this different? This goes beyond that because the administration went beyond that, saying that Maura organizations can apply for this exemption, and it adds this idea of moral Objection rather than just religious and but the majority of the court said, you know, the agency is charged under Obamacare, with both saying what employers have to provide and With giving these exemptions and so it is up to the administration to make those decisions. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg wrote the descent here. What did she have to say?

Supreme Court upholds exemptions to Obamacare contraceptive mandate

"And now as promised, we're going to talk about these two Supreme court decisions that were rendered Earlier this morning and a 7 to 2 vote. The Supreme Court ruled this morning in favor of two California churches, arguing they should not have to face employment discrimination lawsuits brought by former teachers. The ruling makes it so that religious schools are exempt from most employment discrimination claims, expanding religious freedom, and the Supreme Court today also cleared the way for the Trump administration to expand exemptions for employers who have religious or moral objections to Complying with Obama's care, Obamacare's contraceptive mandate and we're going to talk with David Levin, Professor. You see Hastings College of the law about these rulings and other Supreme Court decision is expected to come. Welcome David Levin. Always good to have you with us. Good morning. Good morning to you and well, we got a couple of examples here. The court, citing with religious groups and religious liberty, don't wait. We sure do. I think this is gonna end up being a trilogy with one from a couple weeks ago involving those private schools in Montana, where the Supreme Court said that Montana and many other states could not limit public school funds. That school's off school funds to go to religious schools and in these two as you, said, the one involving two schools down in Southern California, where 11 plaintiff alleged that she was the victim of a discrimination. The other plaintiff alleges that she was Victim of disability discrimination because she had told the school that she had breast cancer in both cases is to teachers were not given new contracts well, the Supreme Court said that under was called the Ministerial Exception. The's teachers who are primarily secular teachers. They teach things like English math spelling to fifth and sixth graders, but they also letter daily prayer. They also at least from a workbook did some religious instruction that that was enough for them to come within the ministerial exception. And basically, it's for this for the institution. In this case, the Catholic schools to say who it is, who is responsible for inculcating students with faith, etcetera, and that the government shouldn't second guess that opinion by seven to to the Supreme Court agreed with that idea, so it blows a huge hole. Ian Discrimination Law your number earlier in the term. That was the case about protection of lesbian and gays in transgender under title seven well in the religious school contacts that's gone this morning. And then if you want to go into the second, we're going to the 2nd 1 I want to. I want to break them down with you. But okay, we'll come back. Alright. The other one's called litter Sisters of the poor, and this has to do with the contraception mandate in the affordable care act and this causes. The statute requires contraception to be included among the health. The kind of Procedures that are available under the affordable health care under Obamacare, and that's caused some consternation. We've had other cases the famous hobby lobby case, saying that well if a privately held corporation and religious scruples they didn't have to offer contraception and then the Supreme Court in the year that Justice Scalia died. I asked the parties, the Obama administration and the parties, including the Little Sisters of the Poor, the lead plaintiff here to try and come up with some accommodation because the little sisters even objected to the idea that they would have to tell their health insurers that they didn't want to give the contraception. Coverage. And so instead, the by this point in the Trump administration was involved because of the change of administration in the Trump administration, came up with a very broad exemption was for religious and moral reasons that you could just as an employer. You could just say we don't want to provide contraceptive. Coverage. And while there's some nuance to it, basically as you stand by 70 to Justice Thomas for the majority said that was okay that we could have this big big exception.

Bolton slams Trump's approach to world leaders as "naive and foolish"

"John Bolton and a man who was NASA security visor to President Trump is with us. I'm holding his book in my Hand Right now book that just sold 100,000 copies in its first week, the room where it happened. John. Thank you so much for your time, and our time is short. So I want to try to go as quick as we can, but also give you the opportunity to give thorough answers and again. Thanks for coming on me right in the book extensively. Absolutely. Thank you, sir. You're accessing the book, and you just make the point that the president is incapable of this job that he isn't willing To put in the work, and it's all about himself. I'm sure you are aware of some of that belief before you came to the White House. I'm sure you saw it fairly quickly. Why not leave right away? Once you realize the president is Curious. Well, I have certainly heard the criticisms before I joined the White House on. But I'd also had a number of conversations with Trump before the election during the transition during the first year, I recount some of them in in the book. And he knew what my views were. He knew my approach to the major crises that I thought we were going to face. So hey, gave me the offer, so I assumed he had paid attention to what I said, and I felt Despite all the criticism that we could make it work, I felt the United States was facing ah, number of very severe threats and challenges around the world. I thought after eight years of the Obama administration, we were In jeopardy and a number of places and I thought I could make a contribution. The book really is the story of whether I turned out to be right or wrong about that. But You know, it's Ah Ah, What when you're in when you're trying to do the right thing, trying to give advice to the president. Ah, and work on policy matters. You continually hope. For the best outcome and you know, you understand a lot of your recommendations are going to be rejected. That's the way it works. I used to say I was the national security advisor. I was not the national security decision maker. Everything's jump in just because just because our time is short of it once you realise that he wasn't paying attention to the briefings and and the way he was talking Two fellow leaders in his deference to Putin and Erdogan. Others wasn't there a party, they said. I just shouldn't be a part of this. He's never going to change and I want to get out of here. Sure that's the point out is coming to everybody's got to make that decision for himself. I've been criticized sort of on both ends of this by people who said you should have resigned after the 1st 30 days of the 1st 60 days or, you know, pick pick a number. And I've been criticized by people who have said you had a duty not to resign. You had a duty to stay in until the very end. I suppose there's a big alumni Association of former senior advisors and office holders in the Trump administration. I know a lot of them went through the same kind of decision that I had two. It's a very personal thing. How How long do you put up with the sorts of things you've asked about? I don't think there's a perfect answer. I considered resigning several times before I ultimately did. I don't. I don't think you ought to resign in a fit of pique. I think you ought to make the best effort you can hit history will judge that That's what I can say. But I think people made these decisions in good faith.

"To justice department whistle blowers speaking in front of the house Judiciary Committee today outlining a series of allegations regarding what they see as political meddling in department affairs under president trump and Attorney General William Barr judiciary chair Jerry Nadler told those assembled it seems clear that bill bars actions are politically motivated and improper the Attorney General had simply missed judged the situation and thought that Mr Birmingham would go quietly then we might truck up this episode to simple miscommunication and incompetence but make no mistake this was not an isolated incident joining us on the komo news line is A. B. C.'s Adam Kelsey Adam let's go into what Nadler is talking about Nadler and his fellow Democrats on the house Judiciary Committee essentially accusing the Attorney General William Barr politicized apartment justice serving as something of a cheerleader attacked Dr president trump and we heard from a number of witnesses including a former deputy Attorney General under Republican president George H. W. bush said bar refusing political cronies to reverse decisions involving trump associates and the called party completed the race in his lifetime to the rule of law and we also heard some really interesting testimony from a career prosecutor in the justice department who worked on the project stones he testified that pressure from senior department officials including the Attorney General led to more lenient sentencing and anybody else would be getting solely because Roger stone was an associate of president trump that the timing of this testimony was really interesting because it comes just hours after another trump associate general Michael when he found his atheist met after ruling by and you'll score basically coming after the justice department lobbied on his behalf so we're hearing in testimony on Capitol here and we're seeing it play out in real time to dissociate the president trump being treated special are being treated differently than any other average member of the country and the president had this to say today about what he thinks about Michael Flynn saying he thinks Michael Flynn was treated horribly by a group of very bad people expired on a campaign and they should never spy on a campaign to put it mildly never happened before in the history of our country will ease basically pointing the finger back at the Obama administration saying that while he was running for president president trump was running for president back in twenty fifteen to twenty sixteen he's saying that the Obama administration's justice department was illegally looking into what was going on in his campaign and basically comes down to accusations of partisanship and politicization on both sides of the aisle I think that the Democrats really going after the justice department which has been traditionally so independent from what's happening in the White House willing to at times look into and investigate the goings on of his own party at the White House and saying that William Barkat if he's doing is constitutionally required duty just acting on the president's behalf and present health kind of playing the what about game as he looks back a few years and says he with the Obama administration's justice department I was playing politics not his own is this all coming about because of tourney General William Barr removing the district attorney Geoffrey Berman ends yeah I mean it it certainly doesn't help William Barr's case and you know although president trump has the right to dismissed any of these US attorneys at anytime you like he was the optics of the situation William Barr announcing late on a Friday night that Berman with stepping down Berman later saying I never resign showing up for work the next day on a Saturday morning and then it having to be trump who steps in to actually fire him over the weekend it seems like the trump administration there never really crossing the line when it comes to their actions always seems like there's an administrative staff but they're going about it in the wrong way in a potentially illegal waste inspired by the Supreme Court on other issues being flagged on Capitol Hill today it seems like it the governing party administrative aspect of the action that president trump and his administration you get

"obama administration" Discussed on The Andrew Klavan Show

"Andrew to sixty four thousand paint your life celebrate the moments that matter most so. This is a good time. We're GONNA talk more about the the virus in reopening and all that stuff but let's talk about when we're talking about the way. The press sells stories. Let's talk about this story about this kid who was shot in Georgia. Okay I'm odd are Bere- I guess is pronounced and He was a guy. These two guys said that they thought he was a burglary suspect. There's video of them stopping him. He's running down the street. He looks like he's jogging They stop him with the guns because they think he's committed burglaries and it goes off screen but it looks like he's grabbed the gun and struggling with them and they shoot him dead. Okay now. Here's what a very interesting thing that you know pressing media. They try to paint the dead guy as a saint and he's a jogger and he's just not. I don't know I don't know the truth yet because it's very hard to get at the truth new situations and the people who are supporting shooters are saying. Well no he's a dishonest Guyanese record and he's with burglary suspect and they put out a video of him walking into a construction site. And My colleague Matt Walsh Said that's ridiculous. Guys go on construction sites all the time and I said that is one hundred percent correct. I do this all the time I mean. I don't know what it is. It comes with the testosterone. I see construction. I walk in and I look around. I do it all the time and I know a lot of guys who had in New York City. When they have fences in front of constructions they have holes cut in the fences. And you can go down the street and there are guys with their faces stuck in the holes guys like looking at construction sites so immediately immediately I got attack. Walsh was really under fire but I got attacked for saying what I said. Which was like yeah? This is not proof of anything and people wingers screaming at me over the daily wire neoliberal daily. Wire people you all. Have you all coordinate? Your ideas and your opinions and this and the official opinion crap if there's if there's an official opinion of the daily wire no one's told me I don't know anything about it and if I didn't agree with it I wouldn't say it. Okay this is the thing so I'm just telling the Information. But here's here's the thing that really bothers me okay. There are two sides to this one is there are about forty five murders a day. In the United States of America you tell murders murder. Local murder story becomes national. If if it has some if it represents something an issue that we should be talking about or it's just so elaborate and you know like spectacular like the OJ. Simpson killing that. We just want to find out about it. This is not the case this does not. There's no spate of killings of black people by white people miss country. Black people were killed by other black people. That's the issue if you WANNA talk about murder. The issue is the murder rate among black people by other black people. There's no movement to kill black people by white people and all this tunnel he coat black bodies things. It's all nonsense because the fact show that it's nonsense so the very fact that this is in the national news is immediately suspect as narrative. Okay and I know that makes right-wingers angry. I understand why that would make right. Wingers angry you saying. Why are we paying attention to this? Why are we paying attention to the fact They are one of our producers. Austin Stevens pointed out that in Georgia where they opened up they completely opened up. The Chinese flu rate is going down so they're locked in Plebeian locked place forever. Wasn't helping anything. So maybe they're distracting from that. So why why are we listening to this? And right wingers get angry and they start saying things. I keep hearing. I hear people saying things like hey you know if you walked onto a construction site without permission you know. That's I mean these are the same people who are telling you that if anybody tells you can't go to the beach during a health crisis the constitution is on fire but suddenly if you walk into construction site it's fine to shoot and then they say well if somebody points a gun at you you don't listen. Here's the thing. I am a hundred percent supporter of the Second Amendment. I support standard ground walls. I think black lives matter a scam. That was promulgated by the Obama Administration to to the police and distract from the failures of the Obama Administration. What the Hell is the defense in this case I? I mean I'm strong supporter of the Second Amendment and self. What's your defense? If every word these shooters says is true they're still guilty right if everywhere they say is true. We thought he was a burglar he was a burglar. He fought with us over the gun. You're still guilty. I don't know if that's manslaughter or murder or not. I'm not a up on the law that much that I would know which of those things it is. You can't hunt somebody down with guns. Who committed a non violent crime in another area? That is not the way this works so well. It's a citizens arrest. You can't make citizens arrest with guns for a non violent crime that happened in another area. Call the damn police. Whatever happened here. Listen I'm just saying I'm just saying I don't think this is a story about American racism. I don't think it's a national story. I don't think it's any of those things all. I'll show you some of the the creation of narrative in real time. I'll show you the nonsense. They do and I know we get angry about this but we're not going to become. We're not going to become what they say. We are just a fight with them. Right I mean. We're not doing the race thing. We're not going to become racist y because our philosophies based Christianity whether you're a believer or not is based on Judeo Christianity in which we know that men and women are made in the image of God and therefore we don't hate them for the way they made. Because we're looking at the image of God so we don't do that right and so I don't WanNa hear about this Demogra- it's demographics. This is garbage. I understand I do understand why people get upset but the right false for the stuff all the time they say X so we say why they say black we say white. No no if you go after guy with guns and he grabs the gun and shoot him. That's on you in no business. I don't care if this guy if this guy is in your home burglar in your home and you shoot him I would you know sure. What's he doing here all right but if three days ago he burgled somebody and you think this is the guy even if it turns out. You're right because it might turn out. You're wrong and you point a shotgun at him and blow him away in the ensuing. It's on you it's on you. There's no there's no defense I mean like I look. There may be facts. I don't know maybe maybe. There was a gunfight. Can't see everything that happened but the way it looks the way it looks. We should not be rushing to defend the shooter's because I don't even under I personally as strong second amendment guy as a strong anti black lives matter. I don't even understand what the defense is so I just hate to see right. Wingers sucked into this. A lot of right wingers was saying this. I go and check them out on twitter and they've got zero followers so clearly. It's a false You know it's a false twitter Handle that they're using to start the stuff for all we know that left-wingers just trying to make right wingers look bad and get right into a fight. I don't know what's going on and look you. Listen to this stuff I mean. Here's the Atlanta mayor. Kisha bottoms sick. Bring her take on this. You can watch the narrative be shaped in real time. This was cut sixteen with the rhetoric that we hear coming out of the White House in so many ways. I think that many who are prone to being racist Are Given permission to do it. In an overt way that we otherwise would not see in twenty twenty because you have to remember. Jay You know in cities across his country even if local leadership fails there was always the backstop of our Justice Department to step in and make sure that people are appropriately prosecuted. But we don't have that leadership at the top right now so really. I mean the minute this went to the state the the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. The minute went to the state law officials whose thirty hours thirty six hours till these guys were arrested. Okay it got stuck in this kind of small town where everybody seemed to know. Everybody else guys were accusing themselves. They'd worked with these guys. You know the minute went to the state so if it's trump's fault that this guy got shot if trump's for this guy got shot and the black lives matter started under Obama was it Obama's fault when people got shot. Then you know I mean what you know. What are the mayors of these little towns blaming Atlanta's not a little town. Where the mayors of these towns get off blaming trump for everything that happens. I let me. I'll play play one more cut. Eighteen is the vanderbilt professor. Jonathan mets would say that the bigger context here about the ways in which guns have been constructed as symbols of of white kind of white privilege in a way the ways in which guns particularly carrying guns in public like this. I'm has been constructed. As a as a way of kind of showing particular form of White Authority. I think provides a lot of the context a lot of these shootings that we're seeing particularly on the shooting. If life were just that guy would be hit in the face with a Pie. You know like soupy sales and the that life was just the guy would be talking back the tie with drip down the cream would fall into his chocolate streaks. I mean look when you hear this stuff. It is easy to lose your stuff. It is his easy to get angry at people taking an obscure murder. There's lots of murders. It's a tragedy. I'm not saying that's not a tragedy and note to the people involved. It's a deep tragedy but it doesn't say ANYTHING ABOUT AMERICA. It's not part of a movement. It's not part of a a an issue that we have. It's part of something that only was invented by the Obama Administration to look back on lynching which was a real thing to distract from their incompetence.

"It actually seems that into your with us so I don't usually do this but I wanNA play clip of meat in September of this show in September nine months ago. This is after that stupid Ukraine phone. Call that they actually impeach Donald Trump for and I could not believe we were even talking about it and this is what I said is cut to. That's the way they covered all of them. Obama not the fast and furious scandal not the IRS. Gamble the scandal. Now that they're not covering of Obama's obvious the obvious malfeasance among his intelligence operations which according to Andy McCarthy Obama had to know about he had to know they were doing this he had to know. This was a setup this this is a tremendous scandal tremendous threat to our policy a tremendous tremendous threat to our freedom. Nothing trump said to the Ukrainian president is a threat to your freedom. Nothing is going. GonNa take anything out of your pocket. Nothing is going to make it harder for you to speak politically like the. Irs Scandal. Did so I always tell you you. Tomorrow's news today right and that's nine months ago. Not only that when they appointed muller in two thousand seventeen I think when they appointed Muller Special Counsel I said this is the first big mistake of the trump administration. This is absurd. It's going to drag this out now. We know that Muller was only appointed to hide and rationalize what the Obama Administration had done. What the FBI had done the FBI had made a terrible mistake. They had blown up this trump Russian collusion thing. It was obviously going to blow up in their face. They sent Muller into stretch it out and that's why they went after. Michael Flynn. They went after. Michael Flynn takes. Say Oh no. This isn't a nothing burger. Look we just. We just convicted. Michael Flynn now. The Justice Department is throwing this out. Why do I know these things? Okay I know. Obviously nobody really knows the future but why do I hit? These things is because I'm paying attention to the one thing that matters about every new story. How the story is told and the fact that the story is told. Why are they talking about Ukraine? Why are they talking about this stupid phone call instead of talking about Obama Gate? Everything you every all the information you get is comes to you through narrative distortion..

Something different. But it was at the end of the day a giant expansion of Medicaid. It's why when the Republicans were looking at the repeal and replace of ObamaCare governor Holcomb was adamant that the Medicaid reimbursement be cut because this is a giant expansion of Medicaid. It's why a couple of weeks ago and governor Holcomb was talking about there being more revenue coming in. But all the money's taken up. You talked about two things Medicaid expansion and DC est- permanent child services. If if hip two point oh was this free market who's your based solution? Why.
