"pete hegseth" Discussed on Newt's World
"The fact that we have to move forward the crusade has to continue. And nobody could describe this. Better than pete hegseth. The author who american crusade our fight to stage rate by was coming. I thought on flotsam from julius brilliant day and part of it is i think it came out of how many channels you've been in. Will you had breakfast. And you've sat around talking to people before we get into more details. You just talked about. How did that experience change you mr speaker first of all. Thank you so much for having me. It's always an honor anytime someone like you see a segment and appreciates it the means the world. So thank you. I think my entire perspective is whole thing is shaped by precisely what you said. I say this without hyperbole. I feel like. I've spent as much time as anybody if not more than anybody. In the media actually spending quality time with trump supporters and thankfully with fox and friends travel across the country. And you know we do segments on camera and we do two or three of them over the course of three hours but then you spend the other three four hours chatting on the side talking with people conversations booth to booth table to table with hundreds of people all of which have come out at four five in the morning because they're passionate about the country and they're passionate about their president and they have a particular point of view and not just that have gone to rallies across the country in speeches and it's given me a deep reservoir of appreciation and understanding for who these people are. So when i went to the mall on wednesday january six for that save america rally that the president had before everyone went to capitol hill. I was there on assignment. Fox and friends to talk to people get reaction to the speech and nothing i saw was unfamiliar to me. The only thing that was different was the size the size of it. And i know there's much has been made about crowd sizes and this and that ultimately this is one of the biggest gatherings of trump supporters. I've ever seen and i've been to some of the biggest rallies. He's had an utterly familiar with the viewpoint these folks had. There's two comments that struck me in the crowd at heard variations before but one of them was the reason i support trump. So much is because he's not in the pockets of anybody not bought and paid for the only special interest he has. His knee is the country and at that whole disconnect that the media can never understand the idea that a billionaire from manhattan who used to be a democrat. Could be the voice for all of these people in middle. America is a very real thing not false not based on conspiracy not based on lies. Anything i it's a real deal and the other one was a gentleman described himself as a born again. American and i had not heard that phrase before maybe you have but i thought it summarized so well how these people feel they feel like donald trump has awoken them to the reality of what they're facing and they're told that they're racists and their spiracy theorists and all these other things but what they believe is they've been reawoke into first principles that are under assault from the left and whether it's indoctrinating their or the borders being open cancel culture censoring stories and their own content. They'd seen all the double standard. So donald trump exposed that for them and ultimately they were there because they realize what the culture is doing to patriots to conservatives to trump supporters and then they'd been told. I think this is the special point of how we got to this inflection point. They've been told and i've said it. I'm sure you've said it. Everyone said it while if you want to change the narrative than you gotta beat him at the ballot box you got to go to the midterms you gotta go to the presidential. That's where you change the trajectory of the country. These are all people who you know many of which have been faithful voters and then they feel like that's not available to them. They feel like if my vote isn't fairly counted if that's rigged against me to what is my recourse. What is my option. And what makes this group so different. That i saw this is not like antifa or other. Left-wing events you see almost universally twenty-somethings agitators who are of haven't yet lived much of life and they're just angry because what they were told in. The classroom hasn't yet manifest. These are forty fifty sixty seventy year olds. Married kids grandkids. You know middle. America black white gay straight across the board sort of this universal feeling of what unites them and the frustration of that day. Was you've taken away. one recourse. I thought i had in a culture. That's completely under siege. And you mentioned american crusade. I wrote a book about this before covid before the riots certainly before what happened on january six but you could see it coming because the political sphere was the only place where patriots felt like they could still win. And now they feel that's rigged against them to and they can't even talk about it less they'd be called conspiracy there so i wasn't surprised new by what happened. That's not condoning it. It was amazing new to see the crowd immediately start walking. I've never seen anything like it. The speech ended and it was starting to move down the avenue. It was a powerful thing to see. And ultimately i wasn't surprised because people really are fed up and they don't know what to do. I also think people were a little bit shocked because they've been told by everybody else over and over again all summer. Then you know being violent protesters. Okay and occasional riots. Which is fine very very few of the trump supporters are inclined to do anything like that if you at the last six months where it was all the violence was on the left and where all the support for the violence was left wing reporters and left wing. Commentators and democrats. Who also does is fine. I a little tired of this radical double standard. But i'm curious. It seemed to me that level of frustrations buried deep. And it's very real. And i'm curious from your perspective when you actually watched it. What was your reaction to my reaction watching it was. What did people think was going to happen honestly. And that's why. I really didn't like the knee-jerk pearl clutching response across the spectrum. Republicans frankly in many aspects were the worst immediate condemnation that everyone involved was involved in an insurrection and donald trump play. These people like fiddles like dupes. As they've been lied to and told that the whole election would be overturned and they thought a fantasy world was going to open up on january twentieth. I talked to the people on the mall. I talk to them. A lot missing believed the election was stolen. They wish there were more resources. They've watched what happens. They've seen stories be suppressed before hunter biden during and after unwilling to air anything many amazing extent to which the media has now taken to taking the official line of secretaries of states or governors. And saying what this has been fact checked and debunked because the government officials are telling us that it's not true. When's the last night. That's what the media was supposed to do. Reflected project back upon the populace would government officials are saying because it enhances their narrative. It's unbelievable so the mindset of these people was not overtly radical. Wasn't violent at all in fact if you break down the timeline. Newt much of what was happening on capitol hill the first incursions at breaking through the barricades happened while donald trump was still speaking. And i've talked to people that were there a lot of people who showed up and we're on the ground up on the steps didn't even know what had happened beforehand. They were just thinking. Hey this is the end of the march and here we are. And it's a celebratory environment and there are reports.

Trump wants Fox News journalist fired over reports on his alleged U.S. troops insults
"Was also the host of CNN's Reliable sources. Program joins us to talk about what you uncovered about the evolution and impact of the Trump Fox partnership. But first we're going to get his take on some of today's political news and welcome Brian Stelter. Good to have you with us. Hey, great. Grateful to be here. Thank you so much. I'd like to begin by talking about the article by Jeffrey Goldberg, the editor in chief of Atlantic whom you had on your program on CNN's reliable sources, just on Sunday. And just for some background for listeners who may not know about this. Trump is alleged to have called those who died in World War one losers and suckers. They were buried in a cemetery outside of Paris and supposedly Again. Allegedly. He didn't want to honor the dead for fear his hair would be messed up. Jennifer Griffin of Fox News has backed up the story and confirmed it in the White House is denied it. They've given the title of your book called it a Hoax. And Trump said it never happened, but I want to get to here is Trump wants girlfriend fired, he said. Fox News is gone. This is maybe change the relationship with Fox. First of all your thoughts about that, but also About what Goldberg told you, Which is this is just the tip of the iceberg. I do expect more reporting in the coming days, including quite possibly from Bob Woodward's book. I Hate to start out talking about some other author. But I'll tell you what. There's a lot of anticipation for Woodward's book Rage, which comes out next Tuesday. And I think one of the reasons why Jeffrey Goldberg published his story when he did. Was perhaps because he thinks what word has some similar reporting. So look, we will see we will find out when that book begins to leak, But I think that the Atlantic and other outlets Have Provided Mohr evidence of a pattern of the president, disparaging veterans and disrespecting the military. Some of this is in the president's own words, including yesterday. When he comments on people at the top of the military just wanting to start wars. Making basically calling them or profiteers. No, I think what the president has done by attacking Fox on this story. By saying reported over Griffin should be fired because she was able to corroborate part of Jeffrey Goldberg report. Is that he's working the refs. He doesn't want news on Fox News. He only wants propaganda. So one minute he will attack a reporter at Fox or complain about Anchorage, Fox, and the next minute he will promote Pete Hegseth, Jeannine Pirro. I'll call into Sean Hannity show her fox and friends. It shows that he doesn't want journalism on the air. He wants pro trump opinion in orderto keep his base is solid as a rock. Well, he's going against Ah, much respected reporter here who has had a great deal of praise for her integrity on the fact that matter is Fox kind of threw her under the bus, didn't they? I think Fox did not sufficiently. Promote and tout its own reporting. So once Griffin had corroboration for some of Goldberg's account, she did go on the air once and talk about it. A couple other shows, acknowledged it. But the dominant theme of the coverage was still trumps denials. And I would understand that they'd emphasize the denials. The president was known to be a proud on his truth Teller, someone who never told a lie. But this president has proven that his words are meaningless. By his own actions. He's country to himself all the time and lied to the public constantly about the pandemic and other matters. Soto lead with the president's denial seems faulty to me. Especially when your own reporter from your own outlet. Has backed up some of the reporting. But again, this just shows the tug of war between Fox and inside Fox between news and opinions, and I think it shows that opinions almost always winning. Well, let's talk, though, about what has come out of this controversy, which is the whole validity of unnamed sources. There have been certainly a lot of accusations that many do not corroborate the story. In fact, John Bolton's name has been mentioned on frequent occasions as well as other Trump supporters who claim that he never said what has been alleged here. On yet you have Carl Bernstein. I think on your show, saying with Watergate under Nixon, they were close to 200 sources that were simply a name. So it's the nature of ice floes reporting and journalism to a great extent, sometimes to have on named sources. But Let's get to the heart of it. I mean, this has been certainly stirring around this controversy. It absolutely has. And I think it is great to have a chance to talk about anonymous sourcing because it is so often misunderstood, and reporters don't do enough to explain why and how we rely on anonymous sourcing number one. The source's heir, never anonymous to the reporters and to their bosses. You know, when I'm using anonymous sources for CNN, at least one of my bosses has to know if the story is very sensitive than multiple people are going to know the identity of this person. And we're going to have a conversation about why they're credible and why we're taking their word and why we're publishing it. You know that kind of checks and balances system is what journalism needs. And what the public needs to know happens so they can have more confidence in the reporting. You know, with with regards to the Atlantic, I think We also know a couple of things from Jeffrey Goldberg record number one. He has quoted John Kelly on the record before he's quoted James Mattis on the record before he clearly has journalistic relationships with some of these retired generals. And that's helpful to know if you're wondering who his sources might be for this story.
"pete hegseth" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"You know that they'll always dismiss it as a partisan which but it's the kind of correction that we need and even some of these other kind of whatever Republicans whatever they call themselves there. What are they these days? Defending Flynn getting attacked and getting prosecuted still. And I don't know if you're comfortable sharing the names of these people you know kind of you and I coming from that world and just seeing what has happened to these. You know their resistance. Republicans they're not even Republicans anymore. Because if you if you you know the name we don't even need to use the name people who they are and it's not it's it's not even really helpful 'cause they'll use it as a badge of honor but we know exactly who they are and they've they've allowed their hatred for trump who really just crafts their party and disrupted the stranglehold. They had on the Republican Party and their animosities blinded them to the reality of his results. And they've been marginalized completely marginalized and in some sense. Let them go run over to. Msnbc AND CNN and spout off republic. Exactly you can't. We can't do anything about their helpless. They're useless winning agents of the left just as the Democrats were winning agents of Russia with perpetuating the stuff they knew is not true against Donald Trump. So let them go off into the wilderness and low rated shows and squawk and squad they have no constituency. Find me someone who supports these never-trumper so-called Republicans who are really just Democrats? They don't have a constituency that's well said so we're coming out of this coronavirus shutdown and this is obviously written prior to the shutdown. As you said I I'm really troubled Pete and I'm a I'm inherent optimist. I think that our best days are always ahead of us if we decide it. It's a conscious decision to get towards prosperity. But I'll be honest pete. We've never seen an assault on religious liberty and I first principles and freedoms like we have under this cove in nineteen China virus shutdown. I actually have been so disappointed by the lack of backlash of Americans sure we saw rallies here and there but the willing abdication of our freedom and just how we were supposed to shut. Just sit down and shut up. There's such squat. The going squelching of dissenting opinion. They're targeting dissenting voices and eating a videos every day and I raise my hand early on in this. I'd say the science doesn't even make sense and I mean my goodness targeting because of that and asking questions like wait. Why is the modeling? Why are you? Why are you putting the code public to these models? Why are you not talking about how the two point two million from the Imperial College model is just been completely disproven in blown up? So so what? Do you think the big lessons from this because this was a mistake. Not President Trump's steak. He's been phenomenal. This was an awful mistake by states and local governments to enforce a lockdown important to note. President trump never enforced the lockdown. Never advocated for lockdown. I WanNa make that perfectly clear but this was a mistake in fact he was. He's been proven across the board and ahead of the curve on most things it was and I think part of 'cause I've shared your sort of frustration especially last weekend. I had a moment where I was just like man alive. We really sit in here and allowing this to happen. And I think it's a combination of factors first of all I read about it in the book how our education system has been largely hollowed out the people who are relevant rebelling. The most in some ways the older people who shouldn't be going out who say this is not my country. What happened to it? I think part of it though Charlie to be a analytical as I can is Donald Trump took prudent action early. And he said we're going to spend the WE'RE GONNA slow the curve. We're going we're going to address this in a in a serious way. I'm going to ask Americans to make sacrifice. And that was the right thing to do at the moment and he asks for it temporarily then. He handed the keys over to governors who happily extended the lockdown because of their ideological perspect- democrat governors. Not the ones that have done a nice job. Florida and Texas and elsewhere and I think the residual of trusting Donald Trump at least for freedom lovers for the three percent for the people who understand it was. Hey if the president said this is serious. We're going to look at it and we're going to continue to be willing to and it took a lot of time for people to say what will will my Democrat. Governor is lying to me and this is entirely arbitrary and has no connection to what the president asked me to temporarily. He's calling for people that he just today said. Churches are essential. Why are you locking them down anymore? And so it's taken awhile for people that awakened from their slumber. There's also been so much confusion from Washington about the bills. They're passing and who gets it. Who gets what people want to be a part of the solution? The experts are telling them things that you point out have all turned out to be wrong. I think this is an instance of confusion for most people who are agitating behind the scenes to say. Get me out get me out. Get me out. But they don't know how to do it so you're starting to see the movements of civil disobedience you're starting to see states people saying screw it. I'm opening up and the quicker that everyone can move together the better it is. It is a scary though insight into how quickly for reasons of health or Safety Charlie. It's always health or safety that the left. Try to use against us to tell us what you can't move or you can't do something they use the goodness of people against them and then lied in the process. And I'm also worried about the policy implications of this. We created six trillion dollars out of thin air that will deteriorate our currency that will add to our deficit. That'll make my generation. Less likely to prosper. And your kids as well. And that's that's a significant threat to our individual liberty and freedom and to stay free as you say in. The book are Fight This Day free. We can never let something like this happen again and we just the Senate voted ninety seven. Nothing on the biggest bill in the history of the country with so much garbage in it. It's hard to even recited three hundred fifty million dollars to illegals and refugee resettlement seventy five million dollars for the trump eating networks of NPR on PBS. Twenty million dollars to the Kennedy Center and not to mention employment provision. Where if you get laid off you earn more money sitting at home actually getting back in the labor market and those of us who tried to warn against it. We're not necessarily taken seriously would have liked to. How do we pete concretely in the book? How do we the idea of when this fight happens again because it will what not shut down but when there's a consequential crucial point where we have to decide between government doing something way overstepping its bounds. And not how do we win that fight because we didn't necessarily in a lot of states across the country during covid nineteen? I can't remember which general said it but the idea that eighty percent plan executed violently now is better than a perfect plan executed later and I think it is a the crossing of the line and being prepared to mobilize an act as quickly as possible and immediately. I think the president set the tone again by saying that if there is another spike we are not shutting the country down again. I mean he's saying I've learned this lesson. We're not doing it again. I go back Charlie. There is no quick fix to this. The honest part. Is You want to be able to say well. All media could speak with. The media is never going to speak with the shared voice. They're always going to come after trump. Well we I think it comes back to the long work that the left did for a political knife fighting which is very very important and we have to do it. And trump getting elected is important. But the reason we're in this place culturally is because the left intentionally targeted. Our educational system is one hundred years ago but more prominently starting in the sixties until now of progressive agenda erased God which erased civics which erased history and made sure that America was was the bad guy in the in the Charter of human history. And now we've got your Ilhan Omar's Omar Your Comrade Cortez is who are the heart and soul of the Democrat party because the education system has created that. I have kids quite literally that I'm ripping out of schools because I know precisely what they're being taught and that it has nothing to do with love of country and perpetuation of capitalism and an understanding of where your freedoms come from and contrast that with the communist Chinese or Islamists who have a very coherent aggressive evangelical worldview that they pump into the minds of their kids and instead we pump into the minds of our kids utter confusion and leftism and then we wonder how we get here with people willing to hand their freedoms away to their governor. It's it starts in the schoolroom and I know that feels like a long term project. It is a long term project you have to do the near term but you have to start planning for the long term. That's why what you've done on campuses. Charlie is so critically important it's ripping people out of the group. Think of where they are in giving them an alternative freely and more and more people are doing that and only through but you also know I mean this is the other frustrating part of what you do what we do. It's always been two three four percent of people it's never been the vast majority of people that rise up and say. I'm GonNa take some big act of civil disobedience or some bold move it's a few people in principle with locked shields leading the way and then other people seeing the goodness of that action and coming behind it. Donald trump forged his way to the White House. We're GONNA have to do the same when we face future threats like this. I agree and that's why the work we're doing a turning point you say as about educating next generation and getting them to understand this country has actually been as great as it has been so. I want to ask you about some political news today. That's just hard to even talk about because it was if anyone else would have said what Joe Biden said this morning. Charlemagne the God. I mean this is serious stuff. I mean this is not just a gaffe this is. There's something there's something really really dark about this and Senator Tim. Scott said binds new comment on black. Voters is the most arrogant and condescending thing. I've ever heard senator. Tim Scott has not one too indulgent. Do Hyper he's he's not Senator Kennedy from Louisiana. Who's got a sweet one liner about something? So what do you think about this because this is extraordinary I saw candice? Oh is said about it and I think she's right. It's it's a true revelation of the feeling the left hand for certain identity groups grievance groups and others taking them for granted for years and I can't remember the exact what Biden said. You could probably set it for me right now but it was effectively. If you're thinking about voting for trump over me you ain't black and putting that in any other scenario Republican saying that about blacks or either side saying that about white people. There's enrolls of Joe Biden first of all. I'm not going to give away the misspeaking. Even though he doesn't know what he's saying I think in this case he knew precisely what he was saying if he knew what he was saying but it is a reflection of the sense that they have. It's like listen. People want alternative. Because we've already labeled those guys over there as racist forever. Even though forget the fact that they freed the slaves and fought the fought for civil rights and all the other things that they've now tried to flip back on us. Forget all that We your this is your only home and you're not allowed to think for yourselves. It is it should be the kind of thing that sinks a candidacy. It really is for a Republican. It might be. It won't be because just like the other allegations. We've seen the willing left. Left-wing media will cover up for him as opposed to drill down on it. So it is. I think our voices need to go after him as hard as they can and Tim Scott. Tim Scott coming out that way shows you. How offensive and absurd. That statement is so closing last question. I ask a lot of my guests. Do you think America will be more or less socialist ten years no if Donald Trump wins in twenty twenty? I think less socialist in TEN YEARS IF DONALD TRUMP LOSES. It opens a floodgate that we will not be able to step back from and I think. We'll look more socialistic. In ten years ago that was a very good precondition on it and I appreciate the honesty because some people say oh yeah less and I don't know if I believe that. I think there's a lot of things that need to happen because if we lose and we lose again. Oh America will be more socialist. It's not a guarantee us and we've lived through a form of Marxist authoritarianism now for a couple months and I'm GonNa make sure this never happens again because this was unexpected. The way that this was implemented American Crusade Pete Hegseth Fox friends weekend. If you're up early you watch Fox Fox News. You see peed on their amazing job by the book. Let's get on a New York Times bestseller list. God bless you pete. Thanks so much man. Charlie thank you very much. Keep up the great work. What a great conversation. That was with a great Pete. Hegseth please pick up his.
"pete hegseth" Discussed on First Class Fatherhood
"There's podcast episode so my listeners. Youth happening over there and buy a copy of mostly going to be giving away a copy of the book on My instagram account at Alexander scoreless and boy do I. I miss the philosophy of the Democratic Party. That was asked not what your country can do for you. You can do for your country and it seems do they have gotten so far away From that principle raining it back into you here as a Dad Pete what type of disciplinarian or you as a father and is it different than style that you grew up with one of the biggest compliments. I got a couple of months ago. Was that the rumor in the neighborhood. Is that Pete is a tough disciplinarian. You don't get away with anything at his house which I love so it's not just my kids. It's my kids friends who I love and I respect and we have fun when they're here but yeah I'm a disciplinarian I really am. I probably even more so than my dad who I revere he did. More of the Sun. I'm disappointed in you. Approach which worked on me a lot. So don't get me wrong but then I went through the whole military thing. My basketball experience in college was almost like going into the military had just gone the school of hard knocks and I think if there was one thing I came out of my high school years with I was a little soft and not quite ready for the sharp edges of the modern world. And I want to. I want my kids while we sort of take care of them and we we ensure their okay and one level we also need to start four to find them to be gritty to be tough to take risks to stand up to bullies. Not just call for a mediator in cower in the corner to be sort of the opposite of toxic masculinity which is real masculinity which is not toxic at all for the boys and for girls supporting their every endeavour in whatever way they want to explore. But Yeah I got rules and I enforce some mercilessly For one time you got to be home and you gotta clean the basement every night. And here's the chores that you've got to knock out. You gotta make your bed every morning and got to say please. Thank you gotta ask to be excused from the table and their consequences. If you don't because I think would you let that? I think we give good parameters to kids. They respond really well. They just need left and right limits and when they have that then they're then they have they have a roadmap to excel and it's a challenge in a blended family got kids and kids and finding a balance of how you manage those relationships. I'm not gonNA tell you. I have that all figured out but you. You manage your own emotions. You start to learn who? The kids aren't how they respond. But the more fair you are about the rules with everybody sort of creates a coherence to the whole group. Which is which is what we're going for. Yeah that's awesome. Pete and I know I watch last year. You did the The swim in the Hudson River with the Navy Seals. I've had a whole bunch of navy seals on the podcast here. I love those guys mentality. What was what was that. Like for you to compete that Complete that with the seals. Are you guys doing it again? This year we are doing it again this year in August. It's still on the books this year. I'm going to train for it and I are already started. That was my big mistake last year. I heard about it about a week before and I got a good swimmer. It'll be fine. Come on. How bad can it be and these guys? I mean these guys are world class. I'm a pound and infantryman from the army. I'm not a navy seal. I mean. It was a lifeguard. I can swim. All that stuff is fine but man we jumped in that. Hudson and I'm just glad I got out there and and last year I needed some help and people saw it on TV. We didn't hide it. A poll here and drag here for certain portions just to make it around the current. I mean there was one moment when I was fifty meters from the Statue of Liberty. I could see the Statue of Liberty. We had to get around it swimming and twenty minutes later. I was still fifty meters from the liberty because the current was so strong and one of these seals just said grabbed my shorts and hang on and I did and he. He plowed into that water. Like nothing I've ever seen so much respect for them as a bunch of money for the cause we did. It live on the show. Our goal is to do it again. This year and my goal is to need zero assistance in doing so which I think I can do. So we're getting ready for. It was cool very cool. What other raw. What kind of plans or goals you have here for yourself. A future B plans goals for the future. Listen I want to be a great husband and a great father and I want to do everything I can for this great country. I don't have a five year plan. I couldn't tell you where I'll be just so grateful to have the opportunity and platform that I do at Fox News Channel at at Fox and friends on the weekends and at Fox nation where I can pursue passion projects like things we're doing in Israel about the state of Israel the real story of what's going on there so I couldn't even if you'd asked me five years ago where I'd been We wouldn't even have been talking about Donald Trump and his presidency and how it changed the whole game right so I don't think we can even anticipate what I try to tell my kids and what I try to live myself is find what you're passionate about and their two young really understand that yet but they'll get there what you're passionate about and charge at it. Yeah you gotTa make a living at some point and yeah there's practical factors in life but the more passionate you are about it the more you invest yourself into it the more likely you are to get a chance to maybe someday someday do it. So I'm just listen. I think we're at a crossroads in this country and to get a chance to have a microphone where I am is pretty cool. And I'm just GONNA keep fighting back and down don apologizing for anything that we represent and have a little fun in the process. Yeah what I'm trying to get out there to Pitas to see if you have any political aspirations yourself there because I I yes fell army guy. My Man Sean. Parnell question on the podcast. He said No. No I'm not getting into politics. And then a few months later he entered the arena. So I'm trying to see if you would ever consider a political career yourself. I would never say no. I'm certainly not angling for it. I did run once in two thousand twelve. I put a little bit of it in the book. I mean I I came in third at the convention and then the guy who I lost to had the biggest single statewide defeat in Minnesota history so I lost the biggest loser of all time. I did not do well but but be honest about this early in my life. I sort of really wanted to run. And I wouldn't necessarily use the word calculate but I was. Hey could I run for this? Or maybe that or how soon. And that's that could be a cage. It almost gets you mentally thinking okay. I've got I've got a position myself for this and maybe this year and what about that race and it's always reaching and grabbing and I am happily completely liberated from that if there were to be a moment five years ten years fifteen years down the line where it made sense to put my name on the ballot. I want to do it when I'm ready when I think I would be the right person in that job to contribute for the country and when I can do it on my terms where it's not going to apologize for this or just charge out of the gate and say this is what I stand for. This is what I represent. And if you're honored enough for both from great but it is. It doesn't pay as well. I'll say that. So that's a whole thing. I got mortgages and kids in life. It's not that simple but God called me someday down the line. I would certainly look at it but I'm not. I'm not for it at all right now. Yeah I think one thing we definitely learned with. Donald TRUMP is timing. Is Everything as we saw with him. So lessening. I WanNa hit you here Pete. I love to ask all the data. Get on the PODCAST. What type of advice do you have the new father or for that about to be dad? Who's out there listening for the new father or about to be dad? I think if you if you had a father who did well by you you would probably be well served to remind yourself why they did well by you. What it was that you valued about them and I know for my father. It was just a timeshare time that he invested in us the way he brought us along with the things he loved and they became the things we love but we also had the latitude to pursue other things if we wanted to and there are always the basic bedrock values that they instilled it was simple stuff. It wasn't you know he wouldn't reading from a book. He wasn't watching. Ted Talks on it. Know he was just his instincts. Were love his kids and be there for them. If you didn't have a dad who had that I mean I know it's a different story and that's and that's why I think you can fill the void of what you were missing. But I just I think I'll tell you this. Try Not to take it for granted especially in the early years because I can attest to the fact that for many years I kind of did. Hey too young. There's not a whole lot I can do. I don't have any regrets. I'm not saying I missed out on anything necessarily but every moment you have is a moment to sort of cherish them exactly where they are in that snapshot. They're going to get old soon and they're not going to reply to your tax and they're not Gonna. WanNa hang out so as much as you can. While they're that age enjoy it it is. It is nothing but a blessing. Yeah very well settled. The message has been an honor for me. I gotta say Pete Hegseth Your First Class father all the way and thank you so much time here offers list on this on this show because highlighting fatherhood talk about fixing problems in our and our culture it starts with. Dad's being there for their kids. I salute you for what you're doing. Thank you.

"We gotTa Have Large Patriotic Families Demographics matter and then you gotta believe in something greater than yourself the rights we have or not doubt by government but from a creator. You can influence that into citizens you're GONNA have a great republic and kind of made the happy case for that then. Donald Trump crash the party make America. Great again the left and the media re-enacted expose themselves for how radical they really are. And so you now have a very clear. Stark contrast between what Donald Trump represents which I truly believe are just bedrock American values. You believe in borders and not you believe in citizenship or not chew. We stand for the anthem or not. Is God. Welcome in our public sphere or not? Do you believe in capitalism or do you believe in socialism. Do you support. The police are not. They're not radical ideas but this is effectively. What trump gets hit for and at this moment in twenty twenty? Either we stand by those bedrock principles in our politics or we lose politically which is basically the last place where God fearing Patriotic Christians went if you look at our education system which is ripped. Got Out if you look at social media. If you look Hollywood if you look at our culture you look at our businesses which are fully woke even look at our military that oftentimes Benz to political correctness. There are a lot of places where the leftist totally captured. Donald Trump was able to win almost miracuously because of the red hats in two thousand sixteen. If he can do it again. In Two thousand twenty we have a chance to turn the tide and save America otherwise the left wants to literally strangle this American experiment. Turn it into something completely different. So the book dissect kind of where we are. There's a lot of fun stories personal stories in there throughout but where we are what the left has done for a huge chunk of the books. All the `ISMS SOCIALISM GENDER ISM multiculturalism every isn't Islamism. And then it breaks down what you gotTa do about how to fight and I use the term American crusade intentionally. It's intentionally provocative I mean it needs to be a holy war for the righteous cause of freedom and it's it's not going to be for the week or the meek you gotta stand boldly for what we believe in and of course down trump is chartered. The course for that. This is the guy who taught us all how to grow a trump spine to see something. Say something and not be politically correct. We got a channel that and that's the argument that the book makes. I don't know that we're getting any closer to unity. But that's not because Donald trump or his supporters have gotten more radical. It's because we've stayed true true on what America represents and the left has gone further into looney land and their arguments. Make no sense unless you hate America and that's the battle that.
"pete hegseth" Discussed on First Class Fatherhood
"She'll give you when she finds that. Bald Eagle joining me now. First-class Father Pete Hegseth. Welcome to First-class Fatherhood. Thank you so much for having me. I appreciate it great to be here all right. Let's start right here. How many kids do you have in how old I have a seven kids? We have a blended family. We each have three from previous marriages and one together ranging from ages. Ten to two. So it's ten nine seven six five four two so it is quite a household when everyone's together which is which is as much as we can throughout the year. Yeah that's very cool. I'm actually the youngest of seven myself a blended family so I know a little bit about what what What type of sports activities that are all into? Oh my goodness everything. I mean. The natural instincts of of kids are two. They want to hit the devices and they wanna hit the games and what I try to do is minimize that as much as possible. Get them outside. They love playing. I listen I you know how we do. His father's imposed on them the passions basketball and football baseball. Because I I played all of those sports. Just get out do that as much as possible. In fact I have basketball camps. The first Camp I did was the Pete Hegseth. Nba All Star Corona Virus Hoops Camp. When everything was shut down and for an hour hour and a half a day. We went out and worked on different skills. But they're kids. They want to get outside of the pool. They want to jump on the trampoline and they want to ride their bikes. I try to get them out and keep them as active as possible. Yeah good stuff and if you could just take here hit my listeners with a little bit about your background and what you do sure Pete Hegseth right now. The host co host of Fox and friends weekend at the Fox News Channel and I do commentary there also host a bunch of documentaries at Fox nation. Tv's a totally accidental career. For me I love this country and I love our God and I want to do everything I can advance God and country and somehow that brought me television but it was after running a number of vets organizations which came after my service in the military. I served Iraq and Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay. So I just WANNA be of service. I'm about the things. This country gives all of us and somehow it be on TV. I also have re wrote one book in Two Thousand Sixteen called in the arena and then I have another book coming out called American crusade which is really an update to that argument where we are as a country and what we need to do to save it. Yeah I'M GONNA hit on your new book and a minute here too and I want to say thank you for your service before we get to say that I really do. Admire your hustle. Does your you seem to be everywhere. So what Wendy Wendy Father? Who committed his picture for you. About how old were when you first became a dad and had to becoming a father kind of change perspective on life right before I turn thirty. It does shake your life because you realize how what an important role it is. How so many of the things you think are important aren't and you mix that with my own experience in Iraq and on the battlefield where you come back and you think a lot of the things in the modern world are silly. Vapid people are obsessed about stupid things and so kids sharpen that even more in fact Garner my first born I was gone for for his age of to basically in Afghanistan and coming back home to see him a huge motivator. And you know I. It changed my life in that. I know that I now have a chance to give an imprint. Onto a human soul and fill that Seoul with the values and the respect of the discipline and the fortitude that I think citizens of this great country and Christians are going to need in the twenty first century in order to advance the things that we care about. So yeah I wanted to play sports and I want to be good and I think you could teach excellence through sports. I loved that as a vehicle but and younger. That would have been my obsession with raising kids. How good can they be? It's just not the case for many more. Want them to excel in whatever they do but way more important to me is raising great human beings who know that I love them that God loves them and that they live in the greatest country in human history and they when they grow up to do their part. Yeah well said Pete so you guys in the military you have kind of that service before self mentality built into you. Guys rose civilians especially man. I think the first time we ever get a sense of that is through. Fatherhood is where we get that idea of putting somebody ahead of us. Salt through marriage is when you become a father and I agree with you here. I think we have a diminished family unit in this country we have a diminished of you of God. I think we can tighten up our family units and God back into our life year. He I think we'd see a lot of our problem sought to go away one hundred percent. I mean listen it is. This is part of my book to not to make a plug but the more you rip God out of our Public Square even out of our churches out of our institutions. You has to be replaced by something and certain people want to place with government or with control or with other false gods of this earth that are ultimately deceiving and so getting back into the word getting back into the Bible sharing the amazing history and faith of the human story through the Bible. Going to church reminding kids that day or something greater than themselves prayers powerful. I just I think that is a number one in educating kids to be the kind of kids we want them to be because we don't have a shared narrative if we don't understand we got kids going through government. Schools are going through our society. Right now who could not tell you? Noah and Moses and Abraham and David and Solomon and Jesus and socrates and Plato and CICERO. Who are these people of of Western civilization? And if you don't know that it's hard to preserve what makes this individual freedom. Limited government free market experiment. Called America. Happened you're seduced by the easy ideas of the moment like free stuff or or like moral relativism that there's nothing right or there's nothing wrong Faith is faith and family is huge and listen. We live in a broken world. I'm the first person to admit the on the center. In need of God's grace every single day I think of that as a husband think about as a father I think of that as a son and a brother and in this broken world all we can do is take the next step the next day with the people around us that we love and create the kind of environment that pumps out kids that fear God and love their country. And that's certainly what I'm committed to. Yeah I couldn't agree with you more. I think the two kids in College. I think our academia probably read recite Zinze People's history of American more than they could've names that you just mentioned there and that's kind of sad and that's why I love the fact that during this home schooling thing although the teachers have been doing a phenomenal job here they have stepped up. I love the fact that we could start our day with the pledge of allegiance and that we could start with an our father and I love what you did with the headsets A school for higher learning. What was the? What was the genesis of that? What's the feedback been on that? The feedback been amazing. We've done way more than has been published on Fox nation. If you go to Fox nation you can watch five episodes of it. It's right over here in our personal library where they do the library lecture for the Hegseth School for higher learning. Listen it was a moment in time. It was a recognition that okay. We'll these kids are not going to be at school. We're in charge of school. I've always been passionate about education. If I don't take this moment I may never get it again in at in this kind of way so like you said we start with the pledge. We start with the national anthem. We do a Bible reading and prayer. We discuss what we read. And what we pray about. They go onto their regular schoolwork. Then I pull them in for a lecture where you know. Dad Holds Court on whatever topic I deem sort of interesting or important and it's Politics. Religion War history economics and trying to make it fun for ten nine seven eight year olds. Who you know. They barely understand the concept of politics or Republicans and Democrats let alone the left versus the right. But we talk about money. We talk about the Bible. The history of the Bible American exceptionalism George Washington the founding of our country. A will to talk about my service in the army. Just the kind of things that you talk about in a glancing way with your kids when you're having dinner or you're in the car but you really baby don't have a captured audience captive audience where you make it fun for make it come alive you ask them. Q. And A. So we did a months Fox nation but we continue to do them to this day and I think it's helpful thing for them to get a little dose of What their father and mother thinking about and believe yeah. I agree and I could be a better time than right now for your book. Actually be coming out here. American crusade our fight to stay free. I don't think we've ever been this divided politically i. It's it's so bad right now. What's going on our country? Me I had. I had the president's son. Eric Trump here on my podcast and I just got destroyed on social media four. And it's like you know. All we were talking about was fatherhood family life. We didn't get into any politics anything and it's just and I always get the threat so I'm on following among subscribing but whenever I have a Liberal Democrat on the show I never get that from the side. So what was the genesis of the Book American? Crusade our fight to stay free. Where can we find it? What is it all about anywhere? Books are sold you can go to Pete Hegseth dot com anywhere you want. You can get a copy. The Genesis of American crusade was based in large part. About what you're talking about. We've never been more divided. And there's a reason for that and the battle for the soul of our country is what's at stake. I wrote a book for years ago. Called in the arena. Used a Teddy Roosevelt's speech that you're probably familiar with a lot of people are familiar with. It's actually called citizenship in a republic and I remember reading that speech and feel like we need that today. Roosevelt wrote about one hundred years ago so I tried to make that speech come alive and it made the case for basically four basic ingredients for citizenship. You've got to be willing to work the dignity of work that willingness to fight to fight to stay free whether it's by force of arms or by fighting bureaucracy or or or just areas in your life where freedom is restricted restricted..
"pete hegseth" Discussed on Dear America with Graham Allen Podcast
"I think that especially with Donald Trump and the same thing happens for for us. I was still agr on recruiting orders when Donald Trump won and so. I thought that that was gonna be my life man. I'd already done twelve years. Agr In the guard done two deployments on a recurring Charles. Like well I guess this is. This is my life and Donald Trump won. I made a video and now here we sit. You know almost four years later in so I think that there's almost been this change and Pete. Please tell me if I'm wrong. That's why I'm excited to have you on here because you are on the largest network in the world but it seems to me that people are much more willing and accepting to listen to people sit in their home. Office like you are now or people ranting in a truck if I may to my own horn for a moment and then they are these major huge networks these days and Donald Trump. I feel like it's arguably the de facto reason for that because people when they see these highly produced things. It's almost like nowadays. They cut it off and they're like. Oh well that's not real or or or you know. Yeah they're talking truth but are they saying everything they really. WanNa say or this network. Have them handcuffed behind their back kind of deal? Are you guys seeing that at Fox like do you see that the same way that we see it that people people just want to hear Pete Hegseth they want to hear what you have to think they go see it all the time? You're completely correct authenticity. Moment and I think it's part partly an over correction because people are now realizing how much they were lied to. For how long right all D- think about it without the age of twitter social media. How long did we have three people who did thirty minutes of television into a teleprompter on the nightly news controlling the entire news narrative? There was no way to correct it. If you clip something incorrectly or you leave out one recently. Where Bill Bar said something about winners right the history and they totally yes. Bad check of regular people that just goes. Dez Is don't want questions it and it's The New York Times and the Washington Post and all of those things that just go right along with it so I I think people are starving. They're starving for reality. Listen I don't care if you're a leftist. I don't care if you're a democrat. I don't care if you're a liberal but don't sit in front of a camera and tell me you're newsman man right now pete and I love it I love it I I hear it in the back man. God bless you again. I'm sitting in my head and said WHO's GonNa get walked good. Hey Hey ladies jewelry. If you're listening to Pete Hick says it a family man and this is real life stuff right now and and God bless you for it man. No I agree with you completely. I think that I can't waving light. He can see me when she can't. Oh Yeah Melissa down. I agree with over correcting though because I was talking to my mom especially for her generation. I this has been a very hard pill to swallow because she's realizing that everything she's listened to potentially she's been lied to about and so. I think you're right so everyone's fighting now for what's authentic or what's true but I love it because I feel like an awakening is coming people trying to sift through information and know what is true. And what is not you know? That's why people don't people these conservatives who support the president don't have the same loathing. Msnbc THEY DO for CNN MSNBC. You know who they are you know. They're lefties were that they're coming from but CNN they try to tell you. They're independent when they're worse than MSNBC so just don't lie to me. I don't care what your perspective is. Just be on and that's why I always say I'm not a journalist. I'm wondering opinion show. I give to give my opinion on television and the day. I'm told to say something or not touch. Something is the day that I don't WanNa do that job anymore. And Thank God. We live in a country where you can still. You can criticize the President One day and support in the next and it doesn't have an effect on your life. Yeah exactly and and I like that and honestly and of course I can only speak personally but but I will take that any day of the week and people ask me all the time. Well do you agree with the way. President trump handles everything. And I said no I said but but show me somebody in the world that you always agree one hundred percent with everything that they do every bit of the day all the time you know I would rather president trump step in it from time to time and be confident in adamant and and know what his decision is in what way he wants to move forward same way same way a leader or a boss. I would much rather a leader of a boss. You know be confident and dedicated and know their path right whereas we're yeah and we've had so long we've had leadership dead that it's whatever the mood of the country or the narrative is at the time that's where they go as opposed to they'll buck the system because no that's not the way it works. That's not what Americans do but maybe I'm crazy. Maybe that's just me. I think you're right. I'd write about this a lot in the book of I'm sick here. We are three and a half years later. We all know who. President trump is and the one thing we know. He's the first politician in our lifetime. That's actually done what he said he was. GonNa do rum. Scrapping the Iran deal the Paris climate accord and tax cuts and the embassy in Jerusalem. Fifty other things he said. That's what I said I was going to do. And here's what I did and that's why I take on the people that are like well. I like the president. But you know his tweets. They're just shut up about the tweets. What without the tweets. There is no trump. You can't there's literally is no ability for him to push back against the overwhelming narrative of hatred against him. So listen you break it up how you want. Maybe love ninety nine percent and not one percent of what he does. Maybe it's eighty five or fifteen but the reality is the fake news media which is very real and very fake it very much. The enemy of the people there taking care of that fifteen percent or ten percent or one percent. They're all over it one hundred percent of the time. It's not we don't need to be that voice what you need to be if you support the general thrust of his policies and you believe they're good for America and putting America first then man get behind them because none of us are perfect. None of us are star. Good no no please. I always tell people like he. He tore that curtain down. That was in between us and what was going on in DC. When he got elected he just ripped at Curtin Down. People say he tweets a lot. I'm like well. That's because there's no curtain they're like you're seeing exactly what he's doing exactly what's going on you know and I think that's better than the secrecy of DC like Obama. We had no idea what was going on when Obama was in on and then they they called him the most transparent president point the whole time. I don't think you can put the genie back in the bottle. By the way I don't think people are gonNA WANNA go back to run. Okay here's your weekly conference then it's not going to happen and I think that's ultimately if you believe in rethinking and it's a very good thing because now you get a chance to get the other side out there which means you're getting the real side out there which means you're getting the truth out there which means people are not because again to go back to the book a little bit what we've seen it for so long fifty sixty seventy years. Our educational institutions are cultural. Edged institutions are media are entertainment. They've all the progressives which are actually regressive. The leftists have all made that they're focused and yes they focus on politics but they're trying to indoctrinate and they've been very successful in our government schools and throughout p kids who don't know about our history their social studies instead of civics they're not taught actual capitalism instead socialism and then we wonder why Bernie Sanders is so popular because politics lagging indicator of culture. Ultra more important. And we've lost the ultra dynamic and certainly our schools. So you've got to emphasize that if you WanNa take it back you just can't win in November and hope to save your country even though. Donald trump is stem the tide. Well one pete sounds like a Baptist preacher right now and I love it but to P P no rea- it happens get on tangent. I love it. Let me let me pick your brain from Min and this is something that I've talked about here on the show and we've all discussed it from time to time. Go back to Bernie Sanders. All right. You just brought up Bernie say I see a mountain dew? Their man I used to be a mound to the Mountain News Zero Ray I used to fiend back into that anyway all right back support Bernie Sanders right. You wouldn't be able to get that under Bernie centers but either way moving forward. A lot of people were talking about Bernie Sanders and how popular he was and he was having his own little rallies and had their and our tens of twenty thousand people showing up and I told people early on. I said you know I don't know if that's Bernie Sanders. It's doing that I would. I would venture to say that that unfortunately is AFC. That's pulling those crowds. And I think when the voting turned out now it can be argued Warren staying in the race as long as she did. Play a part in it as well but his lack of turnout for the youth. Vote like he had back in two thousand sixteen. Do you think that AFC as terrifying as it may be? How formidable force do you think she's becoming in your opinion because I think she's very dangerous? Oh Comrade Cortez Dangerous. Because she believes it. She's typical of that. They know the least about it but they're the most passionate about it right. You either met a leftist or millennial Usually in that case and she listens. She's kind of like the president. Does she speaks like they speak right. They relate to it in how she articulates. But Bernie you're right burnings the wrong messenger. Even though his message was on pitch with that generation right and he he and her represent the real soul of the Democrat Party. I made what I thought was a really good with that Henry at the beginning of the campaign. I said this is way before. I said a little bit too much money more than I should. Especially retrospect because I was so I said I'll take Bernie Sanders for the nomination. I'll give you the field. And that's that's how competent. I was that the core of the Democrat Party..
"pete hegseth" Discussed on Dear America with Graham Allen Podcast
"Bongino where credit is due. I like Dan Bongino ally and he put out. Yeah Yeah Yeah I saw him talking about your book but he put out a tweet just the other day that I thought was super powerful and I loved it. I wish I thought of it. Yeah you ever have that where people tweet. You're like Dang it. He said he said America is opening up because the people sad that it's opening up no government thought is required or something like that and I thought that was really powerful. And there's a good lead way into your book because I imagine even accidentally so because I'm sure you had no idea this craziness was going to happen when you started writing your book but to me. It seems like when all this stuff started. And we've had this conversation a lot. America said Okay I would venture to say maybe many as high as eighty percent of the entirety of America said you know what okay if this thing is really that serious then okay. We'll play ball. We'll come together if you say we need to shut down for a little bit. You say we need to flatten a curve. Okay fine we're all Americans we're in this together. Let's see what's going on. Well now here. We are two months later and every single model imaginable has been drastically wrong as opposed to what has actually happened and now it has transformed from. Let's flat into curve to finding a cure which is absolute insanity next. It'll be vaccinate. Everybody for we still haven't figured cancer out. What do you do? You know what I'm saying? I mean it's crazy. We Dang sure hadn't figured obesity out one hundred percent. What that Al from so so talk to us about that. I Know Fox News and everything that some time some people find themselves tied a little bit to say what they really feel. It's one thing I love about you. You tell people what you think all the time. What do you think about all this? Corona virus lockdown stuff this tyranny in some states where governors have forgotten than they actually have hundreds of thousands of bosses the American people. What do you think's GonNa Happen to d? Do you see some of these radical states actually getting worse or do you see them as you said earlier blinking. When it's all said I don't think that people are gonNA take it anymore. I think dance statement is precisely right. I mean the subtitle of my book American Crusade is our fight to stay free and I finished it right before. Cove in thousand nineteenth. So there's I think one mention of Corona virus in the book really. Yeah there's none but it is a perfect preview of what free citizens have to do to keep the freedom. I mean look what our leaders do when they get. Just an ounce of power especially if it's about health and safety because you have to listen to the experts initially but the experts also told us we didn't need to travel ban when when Donald Trump acted on race that was a racist xenophobic for that old Chinese virus. And the they they also told us. Don't wear masks supposed to wear masks. All the models were dramatically wrong. I think we all had these that moment initially like Whoa legit. Yes okay. So I'm going to do my part and we keep doing our part. We can still social distance and all of that but if breaks down when all commonsense breaks down. Listen I'M A NEW JERSEY? Every state is different but I was buying a gift for my wife on Mother's Day. I knew exactly what I wanted and I drove past three stores smaller stores where I could have gotten a better product in a more socially distance responsible environment than the target that I drove a where I waited a football field long. This same register as everybody else which wasn't in between me. He's on my shelf. Quick out it doesn't it doesn't it doesn't compete with common sense when you're respecting people enough. That's when that's when it's done. Yeah and I think you saw New Jersey and New York and Connecticut are all opening up their beaches for Memorial Day. Weekend right you know why because the beaches going to be open either way. It's warm and we're going out and that's why someone sent me. The Thomas Jefferson quote which fits so perfectly right now when when the people fear the government there's tyranny government fear the people there is Liberty. I think finally at that tipping point where governor started realize. They're not gonNA take it anymore. And that's why that Jim Example of this morning was so powerful and you have to find the right people who do it right. He's well-spoken. He understands his rights but he also says listen. I take the virus seriously. I'm going to take all these precautions inside my business and I'm going to do better than target better than the liquor store better than Walmart and no one can deny that. So what's it about now? It's not about safety anymore. It's about something else which is power and then we laud these. I mean listen. We showed the Andrew Cuomo press conference day is a hearing. This is the guy locked. Kobe patients in nursing without against their will. They had to go back and people died. So commonsense wins out once you start to see all the information and I. That's where I think. The president has such a great finger on the pulse of the American people. It's a smart decision to give the decision to governors. And he's itching to get open. You can't do this. People are being crushed across the board. Yeah well I just was reading an article today. Talking about Woodstock in the seventies they had a pandemic break out that killed over one hundred thousand people and back then. The population was only around two hundred million or so with by far more catastrophic than what we're currently looking at in the middle of it frigging what and nobody gave a crap. Man You know the world went on I think and this is just this just Gremlin thoughts. I think that the world being so digitally now has just invoked. Fear in so many people is the world really worse than it's ever been. Are we just more aware of what's going on actually way better medicine and preventative measures that we've had in the past but what we have now is listened? What are we? It's very similar to the climate. Change thing I got a chapter in the book about environmentalism. Sort of the war on weather and they use the fact that we're all to die in ten years so as a result. Here's the following ten things you have to give up so you're living a life like we were in one thousand nine thirty now that just to the US health and they use safety to shame people who want to be free and can be responsible for covert is a very obvious example. Because it's right in front of us and then you know listen. I've taken a lot of heat on Fox last month for being very aggressive about saying you need to respect people we need to open up even New York even in New Jersey. Let people make a choice? Stay home if you WANNA stay home. Sure it might take some courage but we've always required courage in moments like that and I mean you murder. You want to kill people on sure. You've heard the same thing not one drip of what I've ever said has been rejecting the fact that there are people vulnerable to this who we should be careful with respect you but you're crushing people by closing it down and as at this point thankfully and may be an opportunity for people to kind of self educate about freedom. Those gym owners. They were political activists nine salon owner. We had on the show last weekend. Never been involved in. Politics has talked about her now. She's out there talking because she doesn't have a choice g senior defector life. So so I think that I will. I will say that when it's all said and done I'm really proud of a majority of Americans right now because in my opinion and I always get in trouble for saying this. In my opinion real Americans are standing up and apparently that's offensive to say. Oh so I'm not a real American because I don't offensive exactly so real. Americans are starting to stand up and say you know what at the end of the day even if this some existential threat which obviously it's not even if it was who is the government to tell us how we're going to go out really. I mean when it all boils down to that stuff so you get accused a hold on what you'll get accused you say real. American. It's like Oh no you know what you mean. You mean why why America or Heterosexual America. You mean none of those things where you beat the people who have this our founding spirit and the desire to live free and to be independent and earn their living and be dependent on government and know their rights come from God and not from government. I mean that's real. And so who reawakening people to that real American idea. Then that's a silver lining right. Now I got A and that's why that's why. Our Thursday show is called Real America for that actual purpose but enough about us. Let's talk about this book man so this is your second book. Correct me if I'm if I'm correct there so officially read by I. Well I may be in that very same boat man. I got my first one coming out soon. So we'll see if people read or not but So so it talked to us about the book the purpose of the book. Why did you write it and then and then I liked to pick your brain on it a little bit of which think about some things so so so so tell us? Tell us about this book. I appreciate it. It was kind of a guttural scream. It was it. I read a book for the sake of writing a book. I've written one four years ago but it felt more than beyond time to write another one. And here's why I wrote. The first book was called in the arena. Really proud of it but it was. It came out. May of two thousand sixteen right before the absolute political earthquake. That was Donald Trump. I I wrote it. Yes as a patriot. Yes there's a lot of grittiness in there and it was after my tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. A lot of that stuff in there sure but it was still kind of an establish mini. You're careful you know we gotta make sure everybody gets along type of book then. Donald Trump happened and we all had our awakening and reorientation. Now I write the title of the Second Chapter of the book. First Line of the second chapter of the book say is hi. My name is Pete Hegseth and I was almost never trumper and I use that because I had my own some people saw Donald Trump on the escalator. And they were like. That's my guy and God bless those guys did but I wanted like the silver tongue to Tocqueville quoting you know bill. Buckley quoting conservative like Rubio or a cruise. Yes Hey don Obama and litigated conservatism. And Stop the transformation of America. And so that's where I was and then trump showed up and he was just the Crusader bullet China shop..
"pete hegseth" Discussed on Dear America with Graham Allen Podcast
"Who Pete Hegseth all right and now joining us is the man the myth the legend Mr Pete Hegseth from Fox News Grand. That's you and company. Thank you guys. Hungry Man Pete. Look I gotta get my little man crush thing out of the way. First and foremost I have always said that Graham Allen will never like formally make it on Fox News but if there were anybody on Fox News that I feel. We're kindred spirits. He would be Pete Hegseth so I've said that for a long time. Well listen you can and will make it at Fox as far as you want to go. Listen you know. I'm a huge fan. I appreciate everything you stand. It always have and listen I I. I'm grateful for the platform at Fox. I try to push the envelope as much as is acceptable. And then try to be a voice for for the regular guys for guys like US guys. You know knuckle draggers. Who wouldn't otherwise get that. I try to stay in touch as I can with that channel. Yeah one of my favorite things that you've done recently was when you pretty much said that you haven't washed your hands in about ten years or so say Also we're going right there hitting US board so so it's a Sunday little context on that. It's a it's a someday and that Saturday was National Pizza Day. Okay so we had all this. I Love Pizza Hut. I grew up on it. Just love it so they had it order eight on Saturday and then I said to my co host joking. Sms sticking under the couch. And then tomorrow if it's still there. I'm going to have a bike because Dale and so sure enough the next day there it is and I take a bite. It's off air and I had recently said as my new year's resolution the best stuff usually what you don't say on camera right and that's entertaining stuff so let's start saying that stuff so that's what I said that said. Hey you know guys. I'm pretty sure I haven't washed my hands for ten years. You know. Germs are not a real thing. I can't see them. Therefore they're not real at which point the Internet exploded and accused me of not believing germs at all. Even though I was about Dale Denier Science Pete Fox. Well I thought it was great The biggest thing that we have learned. Because we're a very sarcastic show as well Greg. Gut `field gets in trouble a lot but I really appreciate it because he he sarcastic in nature we've seen to have lost our ability to be able to understand like jokes and humor and things like that like obviously a man has not gone ten straight years without washing his house right so I haven't bathed at all fake news you if I didn't mid to accidentally washing my hands when washing my hair all accidental refused. Actually at one point they wanted me to put out a statement and say that I believe in germs and I said I refused because it gives validity to the criticism in the first place. If people that can't understand that the whole thing is a joke thing to do on their lap each other. What would you go about that? Hi My name Hicks. Actually do you believe in germs? All junior high chemistry and biology teacher and he told maybe you should have listened all right so so paid. You've got a new book out and I really want to dive into your book. But but one thing I would be really interesting for for our listeners. To hear you know you are on on the I mean the biggest of the Big Fox News Man. I mean you are national. Tv All the time. What is it like being an army guy major in the guard correct? Correct me if I'm wrong. Okay all right so so so. You're national guard. I was a national guard guy. I was enlisted though so you were my boss but either way. What is it like being in Fox News for real like? What is that? Like Beh. Day to day? I'll be honest with you. I kind of pinch myself because even though I'm on it I'm a fan of it and I'm grateful for it. I say that really you mentioned gut felt guys like Tucker Tucker. You had my job on Fox and friends weekend before he went to primetime. Listen you these. People are as good and nice and funny people in real life as they are on camera like. That's what's Nice and reassuring. Is that these. These are real folks what you're seeing. It's refreshing and they give me a chance to be a real person. I could not go on TV and be Ed Henry Joke on this all the time. Because he's a news Guy Right and let me give you every angle. That's just never going to be me. I am central smart enough for them to do it. I can't do it I just have to be like well. This is what I think about that. And that's ridiculous and so I'm listen. It is and I also worry where in the world would be as a country without talk radio without talk radio and that whole movement and Fox News Channel Without Fox News Channel there literally is no other side and the media gets away with with the malpractice. They've gotten away with for decades because before Fox News channel existed. So I'm a fan like I'm a fan boy inside my own job with the other people that I work with and just it's it's a blessing today New Jersey. You got to go out and see the gym opening up. I mean that was an experience that was was cool. And what and one of the best jobs I have. Is doing these diner assignments for Fox and friends? I go across the country just breakfast with John. Lewis our shows by the only one that just stick some microphone in front of people on just regular people forgotten men and women farmers business owners whoever and says what do you think because your opinion matters to right and what I found is that reservoir of common sense wisdom in this country is unbelievable. I mean free. People know about their rights. They know about the constitution. They know were republic law enforcement. They love the military. These are people and so today when I was when I was out in New Jersey talking to these gym owners. This and they've been shut down for two months. They've followed all the rules all the stuff we've been talking about promotes you've been talking about it and they said finally we're just gonNA open up and there were patriots out there supporting and I don't know if you saw this but the the local police showed up and they showed up and and basically said you're in violation of the governor's orders you're in violation but have a good day. We're not doing anything at the local police or the police police important. Yes and they and they're still worried and rightfully so the state police direction. The governor may come and do something else but either way governor Murphy one of the Typical Democrat shutdown governors blinked. Somebody blinked yeah and freedom. Wants today at least for one moment so getting out there in the field being with people is what I like doing the most. We all have them. Small ones are easy to talk about but the big ones the ones who really want not so much. It's like if we say them out loud. They have no chance of coming true..

"Thanks. Thanks Jeff flake, and if bring on our guest, Pete hegseth, good morning. And if the investigation shows that there's absolutely no corroboration of the allegations. And there's nothing there's nothing to corroborate. It you're going to have to simply either take her word take his word does well Jeff flake consider that worthless. Because to me that's kind of what what I'm expecting this investigation to to to reveal. It's going to reveal what the confirmation process revealed, which is he's got aside. She's got a site. Jeff flake is a is a tool not only just as a standalone what he's also being used as a tool of the left, and he thinks he's doing it out of conscience and looking like a sage in in partisan times when intellectuality he basically panicked freaked out wasn't willing to take a tough vote thought he could do so because he's not a reelection. He couldn't get one percent in his own state at this point. And so he he kind of liked the glow that he and Chris coons are getting from the mainstream media so-called mainstream media, he likes it. He's like this is my swan song. I'm no longer liked by conservatives or anybody on the right? So I'll take what I can get the crumbs. You might say of all of the folks that that want to use him in this moment, any further delay is only caving to the left, which what will stop at absolutely nothing to to defeat. Cavanaugh? I I took the time to watch CNN for like a decent amount of time yesterday. Sorry, carol. Every once in a while you have to you have to like poison yourself. So I tried it. And and it was it. They went every scrap of speculation about alcohol consumption. And is there a nineteenth accuser? And they didn't stop wall to wall. And they all made it look like it was like the Russia investigation at its worst moments when they would obsess over just the tiniest detail because they want the churn they believe the turn will affect a final vote. I don't think it will. I think Republicans stand strong. They might lose a Jeff flake, but they're not gonna find anything and they're going to get this guy confirm. It needs to end soon. I mean, we we mentioned it a moment ago every single hour, and I know because I'm paying attention. And I wish I could I wish I could quit the internet right now. I was quit Twitter. But I'm just I'm sucked into this. And I was watching yesterday, and I'm not kidding hour by hour. There was something new from a half credible source coming out that just ends up. You know, running through the cycle until it starts getting more and more attention. I kinda convinced mentioned it a moment ago that Mitch McConnell coming out yesterday. And there were reports and curious if you've heard the same thing that the investigation could wrap up today because we know for the most part that the FBI has already interviewed the key individuals. I can't help but wonder if Mitch McConnell is aware that they the FBI is kind of done what they needed to do. And that's why he's setting the stage for a vote later this week. And that's why he came out and said that yesterday. Yes, I think so and I think ultimately they said a week, and we're going to give him a week. I mean that was the deal that Jeff flake cut in the cloakroom with Kuhn's. I mean, basically, we we're going to give it a week and the investigation shouldn't even take that long. So that's a generous amount of time. I hope that is exactly what's happening. It's it's what should happen. Let's let's just have the vote. And no matter what they're trying to get them on. Now is is you know, perjury. They wanna say you perjured himself by the fact that he he did drink black blacked out drunk. The whole thing. You know, how many people including your guests have drank too much in their life. Andy sanctimony is media type who has who who stand up there and say, oh, he knew drank too much. They all drank too much in college every single one of them. And then if someone did a FBI background checked on them, if they would be they'd be screwed for you know, drinking out of a beer ball. You know, we hold on. Feet real quitting in college. We've been to DC and heard stories about how before they go into hearings. There's an annual bar they go to and they all get loaded up before they go to congressional meetings for crying out loud. Half the chambers. Schnookered at every state of the union address. I'm not exaggerating. I e exactly Ruth Bader Ginsburg sleep at the state of the union. No, it's it's not that you have to have the righteous indignation to take stop it you fraud, and you all both because this is a joke and are making us the whole process look like a joke, but it's going to boil down to is they're they're they wanna derailed this man's career. Right. A thirty year career completely distinguished completely respected respected by colleagues respected by his peers never had a negative words said about him over the course of his professional career. They want to take that they want to destroy that. Because he's maybe a little embarrassed about some things he did in college and high school and didn't necessarily feel like just fessing up to it on national TV in front of a Senate hearing. Oh, no now. That's perjury. We got him on perjury. Clearly, he's unfit to serve on the bench. There's some text messages between his team, and and people who are friends with the second accuser. So that might prove the cavenaugh actually did know about it before media reports, and they're gonna they're gonna use every scrap to say that the FBI investigation is over the third accuser went on NBC yesterday when you claimed who claims Gingrich, and she said, I can't say that it was cavenaugh somehow. I mean, even numbering these people as the third accuser, like we don't even know if she's remotely credible. Oh, she's not. She's not she's a nut bar. She's enough. There was a story out this morning about how her her, you know, she was threatening to kill their unborn baby. Over an argument in the past this. This woman's crazy. Believe women, no believe the fact. Y'all know I'll sometimes you just gotta hold your tongue. Yeah. I know. I know we've been doing that a lodges even the course of yesterday and today. Yeah. Double doubling back to to Jeff flake for a moment. And we were talking about this before the before the show started, you know, look in a world, congress was filled with individuals that just for the sake of argument was filled with individuals like Chris coons and Jeff flake like their idea might have worked. If you want to look at the most at the at the most sort of nice way to to sort of look at Jeff flake in what he did. Because I watched an error on Friday when this all played out live on TV. You know, we look at Chris coons and Jeff flake, and I think perhaps they they they genuinely feel like they were coming together left and right to seek the truth together. And they would go and agree to this agreement in order to bring everybody together. But they did that at the behest of looking at Booker and Harris and White House and Feinstein they have no desire to play their reindeer games. And they just like, well, we'll do we'll. We'll do what feels good for us. And just you know, they can go do whatever they want to do for them. And you can't look at it that way. Yeah. That's why call them a tool. I mean, you you could look at it. That's very generous. Have you John to say, hey, maybe I don't believe that. But that's. You're trying to find any reason why. And maybe in that moment, he felt compelled in that sense. But how you couldn't look at the other side of the docket with all the people you just listed and realized that I mean, it's easy that naive. I mean, I do know some people that know Jeff flake that feel like he really is. Yeah, he kind of is not really there, you probably know better than I would he's not always all there in sort of understanding that totality of an of an issue. So I Don he got used and. November we won't have to worry about. And I think I think he's enjoying being used. I think you'll like you mentioned like, you intimated earlier, I think he's enjoying you know, he's gonna ride off into the sunset of his Senate career enjoying this the basking in his in his little window of fame here. And I am firmly convinced at least right now reserve the right to change my mind later, but I'm firmly convinced is going to challenge Trump in two thousand twenty. I hope so. Miserably? Yeah. He there is no constituency for John casick, and Jeff flake, and these types there, just maybe once upon a time there was when when everyone when there was a moderate when there was a conservative democratic portion of the Democratic Party when you could really earnestly work across the aisle with them and Ford some some narrow bipartisan victories, I think guys like that had a constituency, but right now the left is is gone, then there is no middle ground. This is a either we win or they win and one side's gonna lose in that in that environment. You've there's no one's in the in the middle. You know, I don't know. I can't remember the exact with chapter and verse. But either you're hot you're cold or actual spit you out of my mouth and right now anybody like that instead of. Pete hegseth out of at the end of yesterday's show. We landed we we landed on this daily wire had a great piece talking about the times of the country's been through a moral panic, and the reality is we're in the middle of moral panic right now in what we ended up landing on was the and this is a given. But we haven't it hasn't been framed as much as this way. But it's true. This is not about Cavanaugh. This is once again about Trump the moral panic on the left started when Trump beat Hillary Clinton shocked. Everybody's shocked the world, and they have they've they've gotten more looney since then and cavenaugh this whole thing with Cavanaugh has now turned into just another referendum on this presidency. And I think for a majority of people on the left, you can't realize it on an unconscious level, they feel like a, you know, not getting Kavanagh's seated on the supreme court is somehow going to turn back the hands of time in this election year, Jackie right? And then and then yesterday he gets the. At a podium. They NAFTA's gone guys. I got a better deal for us. I took her just in from Canada, and the tariffs that are hurting. Our farmers are gone everyone. Even on the left has with knowledge. This is good for American manufacturing. Good for American workers. Ultimately should have a good impact on jobs and wages and another campaign promise that he kept that literally no other politician, a lot of times hyperbole when people introduced Trump because they know he's, you know, can can be prone to some hyperbole. But when lighthouses said there's no one else in the planet. The probably could've gotten this done deal done the way that Trump didn't like we elected a guy who was passionate about that issue is insistent willing to negotiate and then to expose them again. I mean Kaelin Collins for CNN she's auditioning for Jim Acosta's spot. There was trying to prove that she will. She will resist stand up the Trump, and he's like some have some questions on trade. And then I'll ask you silly questions about. Beautiful..
