Dick Morris on the 'Lunacy' of Some Potential Presidential Candidates

"You think of the lunacy of people like Mike Pompeo and Mike Pence thinking that they could be the Republican nominee? I mean, I've already tipped my hand by saying, what do you think of the lunacy? I'm just astonished in a way that they, you know, they don't to say they don't speak for the maga crowd is an understatement, but what do you think is behind that? Well, it's the ego trip of vanity thing. And I don't think either of them is actually going to run. They may be floating their names vice president or something, but not Pence, but Pompeo. But I think that clearly Trump's got this nomination. And if you look at the economy, you have to assume that he's more likely than not to win the election. So I believe the Trump is going to be our next president in 2024. One of the things I write about in the book and it's been the fair amount of time predicting is what's coming to now, which is that the Democrats know they can't stop him on the playing field. They can't be in the ballot box. So what they're trying to do is to beat him in the courtroom. And come up with every possible fabricated grand for indicting him or disqualifying him or knocking him down or not. And I don't think that's going to work.

Should We Lift Sanctions on Iran?

"Congressman waltz, let's turn to Iran yesterday the president of Iran was invited to the UN. I don't know why he got it. Visa, he came and he threatened Israel in America and held up a picture of the now dead Soleimani who was in Iran in Iraq trying to kill Americans. What did you think about that and what is the law that you propose law that you in the senator of introduced? Well, on top of the supreme leader having to be the sons of all of his inner circle, are going to school in America. They're enjoying student visas. They're hanging out at Harvard and for instance. So it's a broader issue of what we're allowing to come into this country and these thugs that we're allowing to come into the country and the rich elites in Iran. However, the bottom line of the legislation I'm really proud to work with senator Ernst on this is twofold. One, we don't lift sanctions on countries that are holding Americans hostage, trying to assassinate American officials of John Bolton Mike Pompeo, Robert O'Brien and others. And oh, by the way, wounding an attacking American soldiers as they just did in Syria through its proxies. And then two, we have to codify the sanctions on Iran on its financial industry as energy industry. It's inner circle because my fear, my biggest fear of these negotiations is that Biden somehow tries to tie the hand of a future administration, which is unconstitutional and wrong by giving Iran through Russia. Some type of deal that if a future administration said, this isn't in our best interest would tie their hands.

The Queen's Enduring Virtues

"Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was on Fox with Martha McCallum yesterday talking about the queen. I'd like to play that exchange cut number four. I think senator McConnell and some of the other guests have captured pretty well. I think of bedrock. I think of foundational virtues, the things that the queen did. It was for long year serving in the Trump administration. That's for 70 years the stamina, the dedication to public service is immeasurable. I did have a chance to meet her. She always was Winston. She had joy in her heart as well. She joked, she says, oh, you're the survivor. She was friendly in a way, but demonstrated enormous wisdom as well, right? From Churchill to trust, there was always someone there who knew the sweep of history, appreciated the sweep of history, worked with prime ministers from across the political spectrum to deliver good things for the people of the kingdom, which she was responsible for.

The Man Who Got Away From the White House

"Let me drill down on this because the Abraham accords matters so much to history. You're a constant in the president of the constant in this. Yousef doesn't change TV doesn't change NBC doesn't change. But what changes is Pompeo replaces Tillerson. I don't know Tillerson, so I won't talk about it. I know Mike very well. But ambassador O'Brien replaces ambassador Bolton. How does that matter? And I mean, you're pushing for the same thing for four years. You start with the embassy, you end up with the Abraham accords and even after the Abraham accords the F-35s, the Western Sahara, the Sudan issues, you just followed it through Phoebe is a constant. The only two things that change are at the 7th floor of state and at the west wing office that everybody sees in every shot O'Brien for Bolton. Why do those two matter and you're constancy matter? I think that that mattered in that when they both came in, it took Trump a while again. I always say that the first night he slept in Washington. He slept in The White House, right? So he wasn't a mayor. He wasn't a governor. He wasn't a senator. And so it took him a while to find the right people who understood what he was trying to accomplish and who were competent and enabling for him to do that. So I write about Mike coming in and replacing Tillerson and how I went to Mike and said, look, there's only one Secretary of State you're the Secretary of State. I'm working on this file. I'm making progress. Do you want me to go off the file? And Mike says, no, no, no, no, you're doing great with it. Just keep running. Anything you need I'll be available and actually write something about how with Tillerson, it was impossible to get him. You want to get him on the phone. It would take three, four days, and then a conversation would last 30 minutes, and you wouldn't really accomplish much because it would be mostly either less during you or complaining about stuff. With Mike, a conversation would take under three minutes. He was very to the point, very decisive. And I would say by definition, he could do ten times more diplomacy. And that's also why he was always so available and reachable and really a great Secretary of State. With

The Trump Diplomacy

"The things that leaders have to do in diplomacy. And you mentioned two books in passing in your own book breaking history. One is the hundred year marathon by Pillsbury about China. Excellent book. The other is Lawrence Wright's book on Camp David. You have to be read. You have to be well informed, but you also need partners. I notice, you are trying for four years to get, and the Abraham accords are the key big deal of the Trump period. I mean, history will still be looking at them in 300 years. The key thing was not moving forward until Mike Pompeo replaced Rex Tillerson at state until Robert O'Brien arrived to replace John Bolton. Why do individuals matter so much when the principles want to get somewhere? So that's actually one of the fascinating things that hopefully people will get from reading the book is that I learned that nobody in Washington can get anything done by themselves. It's really a function of different people from different backgrounds with different experiences from different geographies coming to a coming together, having to agree on an objective, create a plan and then all row together in order to accomplish it. And I think in the beginning, Trump's policies were so radical to Washington, right? A lot of people say he's conservative, some people call them other things. I think of him as a pragmatist. And I thought that a lot of the things he was saying just made sense, right? Why are we stuck in all these endless wars if we're fighting a war? Let's fight to win. Why are we getting taken advantage of on trade by people who were protecting like Europe and NATO? And so all these things to me just made a lot of common sense. And so you had people in there. I think the biggest difference with a guy like Tillerson was that he wanted to manage the world, whereas Trump wanted to change the world. And Trump, I write about a lot about his decision making. I write about how he would take calculated risks in order to make big differences. And I give great examples. I take people into the situation room and into the different scenes when he was deciding to move the embassy. The fierce resistance he got from the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Defense from the Intel community from every other world leader, and Trump understood why no other president had done it before. It was just a barrage. But he didn't allow that risk to dissuade him. He studied it. And then he said, to me, Jared, I want you to go mitigate that risk. If people's fear is that there's going to be riots and explosion in the Middle East, call all the leaders in the Middle East and tell them we're watching. They want our help now with Iran. They want our help with military. They want our help with trade. They want our help with a million other things. Tell them this is a decision we are going to make, Israel is a sovereign nation. They have the right to determine where their capital is. And we are a sovereign nation. We have the right to recognize that decision. And so if they have a problem with it, they can voice it, but that's it. I don't want to see big problems. And so we really mitigated it. There's one leader in the Middle East who said to me at that time. He said, Jared, I'm not going to tell you to move the embassy. I'm not going to tell you not to do it. But what I will tell you is that if you do do it, you'll find out who your Friends are. And that was a very, very true and why statement. And we ended up working with everyone and we got it done. And I think that with Trump, the more that he slaughtered the sacred cows and did the things that everyone warned him couldn't be done. And again, he did them very thoughtfully. They were not done recklessly or impetuously.

Victor Davis Hanson on Trump's Special Role to Play in the GOP

"Hansen, there was an individual I had on my show last week, a very successful British podcast who did a very short video 7 minute video on why it has to be Trump for 2024. And his argument actually goes back to the minstrels of the poets such as Homer, the stories of Odyssey and the Odysseus and the Iliad saying there is an arc. There is a narrative that has to be fulfilled and if there is to be any truth to the ark any justice to the ark of Donald Trump's narrative, he has to come back and drain the swamp. My argument is a little bit more pragmatic as somebody who served in The White House. Only a politician who has been as crucified for 6 years who knows what the FBI, the CIA, the DoJ, the NSA can do, will have the wherewithal and the backbone to clean out the stygian stables. Are we just being optimistic or should we say that anybody could do it or does Trump have a special role to play? I think he has a special role that question is and I don't have the answer about half, I would say 60% of the Republican Party believes that what you just outlined that you need somebody with fire in the belly that not just has the agenda, but understands the nature of his opponents and it's an existential fight to the end. And then the question of the subsidiary question is, well, how about and this is pose a Mike Pompeo or Ron DeSantis, Tom cotton, they're all great people, but their argument is, well, they don't get into Twitter cul de sacs. Are they don't incite billions of dollars to come out because they are more selective and targeted and focused in their methods of attack on the left. And they're not career politicians, and they do have fire in the umbrella. And that's going to be adjudicated in the primaries, I guess. Because the Trump people will say, yeah, but their politicians are going to push comes to shove, they'll be like Mike Pence, who right in the middle of this FBI controversy comes down on top.

Why Trump Routinely Dominates Straw Polls Like the Recent CPAC One

"At the recent cpac conference in Dallas, which concluded this weekend there was a straw poll. And the results of the straw poll reported pretty widely in the media. Trump 69%, this is for 2024. Desantis 23% and pretty tellingly, Cruz 2% Pompeo, Nikki Haley, Rand Paul, Kristi Noem all 1%, and by the way, notice who's not there. Mike Pence 0%. Wow. Now, I want to try to explain the Trump phenomenon here because there are some people who say and I've been seeing this on social media that desantis is much more kind of error free than Trump. Desantis doesn't make Trump's mistakes. He is very effective as Trump is in hitting back at the media. They both have that kind of fortitude, but desantis is less ad hominem, desantis is in some ways certainly in terms of his personal life. He seems unbelievably clean, caught, he's got the sort of perfect resume. So why is it? Why is it then that Trump is consistently not just ahead, but way ahead? I mean, Trump is over two thirds of the vote. And desantis is desantis numbers only improve if you take Trump out of the equation. So what's going on here? Well, I want to try to explain this in an unusual way. The writer Scott Fitzgerald, this is the author, of course, of The Great Gatsby and a number of other important books. Scott Fitzgerald, once said something very poignant and I think very illuminating. He said, he said, I've got the two second best things to have. But I don't have the two best things to have. And he went on to explain that the second best things to have in his view were good looks and intelligence and Scott Fitzgerald goes, I got those two. But he goes, but the two best things to have are animal magnetism, animal magnetism, and money.

Jack Posobiec and Charlie Unpack Nancy Pelosi's Taiwan Visit

"There's a lot to unpack what's what's happening there, but the breaking news, Nancy Pelosi has just landed. She's a scientist that's right. Taiwan and I'm very torn on this Jack. So maybe you can help get me clarity and with it the audience, which is I'm no fan of the Chinese Communist Party. I think that our focus should be on the CCP, unlike how our focus is on Vladimir Putin in Russia. Some people say, well, Nancy Pelosi is showing this big show of strength by going to Taiwan. Other people say that, you know, we are unnecessarily agitating the Chinese Communist Party, which I'm torn and I'm torn for the following reasons. Not for political reasons. We know why Pelosi is going. I think she's just trying to get a midterm boost for the Democrat party. Let's also because it's a nice feather in her cap for the end of her career. And of her career and I also she's an asset of the Chinese Communist Party. A 100%. So I'm not even talking about the Pelosi thing. I'm torn in the sense of, is this a good geopolitical idea? Whether if it was Pelosi or whether it was Paul Ryan or whether it was Boehner or McCarthy or gingrich, is it a good idea to Pompeo to Taiwan or who? Pompeo talked about. I don't know if he went, but I know he tweeted that he would try to accompany Pelosi on this trip. So I don't know. You're the expert. So Jack, is this a good idea or a bad idea? Nancy Pelosi in Taiwan. Forget the politics of it. Let's pretend it's not Pelosi, which is obviously so nakedly partisan and political, of which I have no respect for her. Well, here's generally geopolitically. Well, no, here's the thing. If you're looking at geopolitically, if you want to help the people of Taiwan, you want to help the law by Jing the common man and women of China. Where's Pelosi on the tariffs? Where's Pelosi on understanding the economic leverage? Because that's the only real way that we're ever going to be able to achieve any movement beyond the status quo here because unless you stop the free flow of western capital to the CCP, nothing will ever change in China will absolutely the CCP controlled PLA. People's Liberation Army will absolutely clearly have a military advantage in the area. There's no question president Trump was very clear about this as well. That should kinetic conflict kick off. I mean, it would be bloody. It would be devastating. The entire island would be on fire.

Which Republicans Are Gearing up for a Potential Presidential Run?

"Us. So there's some interesting rumblings. I got a couple of emails over the weekend from some folks up in D.C. down in Florida. And they've been, they've been paying attention to some of the maneuvering of folks like Mike Pence, governor Christie nome, Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley, even senator Tim Scott over in South Carolina. Not so much Scott as the others that I just mentioned. But there are Republicans that are starting to maneuver themselves. For what could be presidential runs. Now, the general thought and the working theory within the Republican Party is that Trump is going to run. And that if Trump decides to run that the nomination is Trump's if he wants it. In other words, everybody else in the party would stand down if in fact he decides to jump into the race. Now you could say that's a good thing that's a bad thing and I can see the pros and the cons of both, but do we really want a long drawn out Republican primary where you've got all of these up and coming Republican superstars taking cheap shots at Donald Trump. There are also rumblings that establishment Republicans are gearing up and that someone like a Liz Cheney could enter the race. A Liz Cheney who, by the way, is trailing her opponent in her congressional race in Wyoming by what 20 points. But they're saying she might jump into the race and it might be that Mike Pence is going to be the establishment guy. Pompeo has been mentioned as a choice, but I don't think he's ready to jump in yet. And I think a lot of these folks are going to wait and see what Trump does, but people are already starting to make moves.

Because I know the latter are driving daily kitchen table conversations, but we have to keep the country safe and this administration is not doing that. Does that come up in your appearances? Yeah, they're so deeply connected to you and absolutely comes up. Looks understand that when we lose what we had for four years, American energy dominance, the ability to deliver affordable energy to ourselves. That's natural security applications and implications for the ability to afford to drive your kids to their soccer game or to their ballet recital. No, the American people get it. They understand the place they understand the Chinese Communist Party isn't just a foreign problem that they're inside the gates here showing up at PT matings and school board meetings and infiltrating our university systems. Those are those are things that impact their lives every day too. And sometimes we talk about them as if these are these two separate things, right? Foreign policy and the ability to feed your family and pay your rent and afford the energy for your car. They are deeply connected.

That is such a stunning number for a 5 month engagement that can Vladimir Putin keep that up. Sadly, politically, I think he can. Query whether the military will be able to continue to deliver fresh people to the front lines in a way that will actually continue to push the fight, but this really gets to the core point. I've seen that number 25,000 killed in action. I've seen casualty numbers which includes wounded that are triple that obviously closely kept secret. But it's a big numbers. Query query whether the west will continue to have the resolve to inflict those kinds of costs on the Russian military that will ultimately lead to Vladimir Putin turning tail.

You know, a lot of these people, what do you make of the needs of Great Britain in their next prime minister? Toughness resolve. Candor. Most of all candor to the people of the United Kingdom telling them that this is a tough honorary world out there that they are an important player. And now that they are no longer part of Europe, they need to step up and continue the kind of leadership that they had when president Reagan and Margaret Thatcher and Pope John Paul two worked so closely together. I was there. I was in London for a three or four days. Just before prime minister Johnson stepped down. And I saw a great generation of next conservative leaders from Tory party. Not every Tory is a conservative, but every conservative is a Tory and I think they will find a good leader who moves the country forward in a way that engages in the world economically and lets lending continue to be a massive, important, massively important financial center, but provides a level of understanding for other European nations about this is the way forward.

Who Will Be the GOP Presidential Nominee for 2024?

"Who is going to be the Republican nominee in 2024, it seems early to be able to answer that question now, but it's pretty clear how the question would be answered if we were deciding the question today. And you know, I think it's pretty obvious that Trump would be the nominee. It's quite likely that desantis would be his pick. It's not going to be Pence. We can be sure of that. For vice president, and that seems to me to be a ticket that would make probably a lot of sense. Why? Because Trump is the most popular figure in the Republican Party, desantis would be second. And all of this is confirmed in the Harvard Harris poll just came out. Which had Trump at 56%, the Santa said 16, and then everybody else is very low. Pence is at 7. Nikki Haley at four Rubio a two Tim Scott had two Ted Cruz a one Pompeo at one so Trump is obviously the dominant figure. I think everyone knows that. And so what makes a strange is as an article in the hill, and if you read the article, the title, the headline is this. Desantis leads 2024 GOP pack. What? This is a flat out misstatement of what the poll shows. In fact, desantis is in the low double digits. He's at 16% compared to Trump's 56. But of course, as you read the article, you realize that the hill is trying to play a little bit of a sleight of hand, they their headline is if Trump is not the nominee. You didn't see all these all these leftists wish that Trump is not the nominee. It's the point of the whole January 6th proceedings. Let's try to make sure Trump is not the nominee. Let's try to prevent him from running again. And that wishful thinking is reflected in this

Here's something that could be solved by voluntarism and Say we'll find There's a lot of people who who who think that vaccines are good.

And just say well if you if you state that That vaccines You you know are are are not perfect and then get taken off the air or something can allow the happen but right now if If you if you don't if you're not back st- Then then it comes down and you can be dismissed from distributing that information on the internet but my my big complaint is social.

"This is this is not good But i think it has to have some political significance. I you know. Sadly we don't think this will hurt. trump politically you know It might fit into from the frustration. I have is is the indecisiveness of You know he was a pretty nice guy. You know Maybe he's been mistreated at the same time. He went along with the pompeii ohs says volumes about the values that the us government pretends to uphold claims to uphold in the actual values. That does uphold. Because can you imagine if it was putin and they said well. We uncovered a plan from putin to assassinate A journalist an opposition journalist who was bringing up the dirt on putin and putin came out and said yeah. I make no apologies. I was trying to kill the guy. He was taking the state secrets away. You know so the idea. We proclaim that we have this great respect for journalism and opposition journalism. The reality is behind closed doors. The plan is gonna kill this guy because he's showing the crimes that the cia has committed in our names with our money right. Wanna go on to the next thing. You have another point you wanna make their but you know this is on regular. Tv a lot and they're making the point and there is a division now in the democratic party. More than i would have expected you know because They were very unified before the election because they didn't care who they were electing. And maybe that's why we have our current president they. They didn't care because the hatred. It was all directed toward trump. but right now the democrats are. We'll split their arguing pretty strenuously over the budget and They're even involved in Foreign policy and how the afghan war din to end a. Who's to blame so that that's going on but This is reflected in the polls The the the conventional polls the public polls and it shows that that biden's in in bad shape. So sometimes i. I don't think any this stuff. A major news. Networks is that comes about because it's true and There seems to be a strategy. And i just wonder what the strategy is long-term on what they expected to in the next few years. Who's going to. The president is going to be the vice president. And what's what's going on but There's no doubt that the american people don't trust Baden we might say we could get some pretty good statistics. They were honestly down of the The decrease in trust With the american people over decades is certainly has gone down a whole lot. Yeah well we wanted to look at some poll numbers because pull numbers are always very interesting and in fact this. Look at this This first clip that we have of course there is a lot of editorializing in this title. Anyone who studied or is familiar with the craft of journalism would see that however let's read it this is cnbc unvaccinated americans falsely. Say the need for booster shots proves kobe. Vaccines don't work. Kaiser survey shows no anyone. Writing a normal headline would just say unvaccinated. Americans say the need for booster shots proves covert vaccines. Don't work because that's what the survey was but there was an editorial relation that but it doesn't matter because the important part of this is not about whether they work or don't work. It's about the attitudes of americans that were trying to discuss in the segment..

Let's just call it a listener rights. Okay ladies and gentlemen now. A segment of a listener writes a listener. No one album. I just got a letter from a listener to give his name. No well it. Rhymes with jack conley. I'm not gonna. I'm not going to. I wouldn't say it. Okay it's just the initials j. c. kojak and we use which is not even error but it says this is incredible. Sometimes it's very funny. The next letter is very funny. This letter is really serious and it really moved me to tears. It says dear eric. I just completed your biography of bonn hoffer thank you for such provocative inspiring challenging read. I'm a catholic priest and so deeply appreciative of your work. I assure you writing and preaching will be different now. You have opened my eyes. Thanks john. I'm not going to say the last name but it's a see i. I wanna tell you folks when i get something like this. You know you write books. I prayed so hard. When i was writing the bond hoffer book that god would use the book for his purposes but eleven years later to get a letter like this that this is a priest saying that his writing in his preaching will be different as a result of reading this book. Now i know it's not. My book is the life of bond hoffer but the idea that i had the privilege of writing the book. So if you're looking for good book let me recommend my bag. Fubon hoffer not. Because i wrote it but because it's it's kind of the best summation book if you're going to read a book you want his whole life and just to be clear you don't have to be a priest or minister to read it. It helps but okay. Here's here's a letter now. This letter is serious. But i found it so funny i said i gotta read this on the air. I'm not going to mention the guy's name. But let's just say it's joe l. This is a real letter. The title in the email was. Your selection of only men is short-sighted and then it's it says the eric after enjoying your seven men book graduates edition i add misgivings about approving recommending or gifting. It and wondered why your picks lacked diversity as the number of women is zero. It's unlikely seven men will inspire female graduates. Your selection of only men is short sighted. Man that hurts. yeah so. I had to respond to joe l. and i wrote this. I'm not joking. That's the letter i got. And this is my response. Dear sir perhaps you will find my seven women book more diverse. Here's a link for you to purchase that book. But i must warn you upfront. That seven women does not include any men. I'm not sure what can be done at this point. But i thought you should know. Thanks for your email sincerely. Eric metaxas author. That's a real. That's a real letter. Somebody was upset that my book seven men graduates edition didn't include women and i don't really know how to respond to that because it hurts it stings because seven men. It's a fact folks. i'm not going to deny it. You know when you're when you're when you're wrong you're wrong. Seven men has no women in it. I'm guilty. You are and seven women to to double down on my non diversity. Seven women has no men in it. Oh what are you gonna do. The books are printed their published out people buying and reading them and being blessed by them. I'm sorry but you know big man to admit all this. I must thank you.

"Folks it's ask metaxas time. That's right. I'm playing the role of taxes. And you acce the questions or ask depending on where you're from ask metaxas. This is going to be kind of lightning round ten minutes. We've only got like six minutes and thirty seconds for this round and go. Oh okay here we go. How always is tim. Keller question number one is. How tall is tim. Keller that's question number one. I said people could ask me anything. Okay but i was not expecting that. Yeah i'll i'll answer it okay. He's about six three and a half. I'm not kidding. But the weird thing about. Tim keller is look. He's a friend. He's been a friend for years. Tim keller is kind of a big guy. It's like sebastian gorka from a distance. He looks you know normal. He doesn't look tall. Then when you get up to him you realize he's really tall. So when i say next to him i feel tiny like sebastian gorka. Because they're just they're normal. Proportions are normal but they're huge. But can i add grew quickly. You look normal until you in part and then you see me in person and realize a freak. You're like bus freak. I tell you okay redel. When will you have jordan peterson. Or finagle an invite to his podcast. Okay i'm really sick of this question. Everybody says this when you can have jordan peterson. What are you going to give you a minute. Are you friends with jordan peterson. Why don't you get him to invite me on his podcast. Tell him he needs to reach out to us. Because he's jordan. Peterson he's kind of a big deal. And it's kind like when you gonna paul mccartney on when you get ready to have him on now but he's kind of hard to get to so if you have any connections elton john. Paul mccartney jordan peterson please. Folks go to their website. Badger them tell them to contact us. That'd be nice gesture. Okay this is the ask metaxas. Lightning round question three book recommendations. What are you reading. What am i reading your assuming i read. Actually i'll tell you the truth what i'm reading. I'm reading don quixote or the quick as it was referred to in the nineteenth century by pretentious british. People don quixote written by set of this don quixote is one of those classic classic classic books that everybody raves about. But i've never read and people assume since i'm eric metaxas. I've read everything folks very far from very far from it. I am deeply ashamed of the abc's in my Reading so i was in Kansas city with the mike bickel and company and in the book line. Someone came up to be now forgetting his name. I just read it this morning. Because he signed my book and he starts talking to you about clarisa and about About don quixote classic books from previous centuries. Kalisa don quixote like seventeenth century books and. i thought i'd never read them and he was going on and on and the next time i came to kansas city. 'cause i came back for sean event and then i went back to kansas city. He hands me. A copy. Of don quixote that bought for me. And so i said i get to read it bon hoffer raved about don quixote and in my book on bond hoffer which i recommend He raves about don quixote which he read in the original spanish because he's brilliant you know hotshot bon hoffer and when he was in spain as a very young man. He a as a youth pastor in german congregation in barcelona or but alone as as the burst. Bolognaise say and so don quixote's what i'm reading right now. Thank you for that question any other questions. Yeah how do you pronounce bankers bangor gore us is pronounced bang. Bangor not bangor bangor and by the way. That is a shibboleth a shibboleth. In the in the in the old testament. There's a moment with the people who are from the place called shibboleth they pronounce it sybil eth- and everybody else pronounces it shibboleth and so as their crossing the stream. It's like they're asking them where you from. If they mispronounced it. They know they're lying. And they them. So a shibboleth is a word that divides the locals from the non locals. Quincy massachusetts the same kind of thing. Everybody reasons as quincy. Quincy quincy but the local sake quincy so bangor is a shibboleth. Say bangor people. No you're not from bangor next question. Okay if you're from pittsburgh if you call it the bird than everybody knows your from pittsburgh now. Any plans to come to chicago this year. That's the question you know of all the ask metaxas questions that i've done in the segment this is by far the most recent and it's challenging any plans to come chicago this year. Now here's another thing it's like. The jordan peterson question. When people say to me eric give any plans are. Why don't you come here. When i need to be invited. I don't just like show up at a church or school in chicago start lecturing. I need to be invited. So if you are affiliated with oh. I don't know the moody church or some some mega church. is willow creek still open If you're affiliated with a big church ask them to invite me if we can work it out. I will come. I would love to come. It's been a while since i came to chicago. I would love to come to chicago. But i have to get invited. That's a rule that i have. If you invite me then. I can say. Eric would like you to invite him to hawaii as well. And now if you're from a church there of course yeah. How do you respond to the claim. That god is different in the old testament versus the new testament. That's a tough question. Well there's there's a one word answer for that. Can you guess what it is pass. That's not the word. oh the. How do you respond to the claim. That god is different. In the old versus the new testament. Well the one word answer that i would respond with is jesus there you go. Jesus who is god and cornet whom i worship as the second person of the trinity clearly saw the new testament and himself as the fulfillment of the old testament so there can be no disparity unless you read them sloppily in other words unless you don't know how to read it or understand the context. But if you understand the context you understand in the old testament. God is preparing people for himself. The the israelites are his people and part of the reason he prepares them and chooses them is to bring the messiah into the world. Does the new testament and the whole point of preparing people for himself was sold. Messiah would come out of those people and then the whole world through the messiah could worship the god of the israelites. And so that's my short answer the long answer. We may do another time. We're just about out of time album. This has been a lightning round of ask taxes that folks every week. We're going to do this every single week. Be prepared all right. We're gonna come back final segment and then of course we've got our today. Which is another story. But we'll be right back with some exciting stuff down. I've got seven women on mine. Stone wants.

Yes what did something happen. That i should know. I think it's breaking news. Obviously you did not read it. Because i already know that there is a new strain of virus. Okay and i'll world how organization and out there on on top of this thing. Now they were able to get us to wear the masks right for for the last virus. Will this one from the caribbean. It's called the pirate pandemic all so the one so the one from from china the china the hung flu pandemic from china. That's kind of like old news. You're talking about a new virus from the caribbean. This is the new right so it seems to enter through the right eye. So you're supposed to now wear an eye patch so on. i'm doing it. I'm trying to lead the way. I'm ahead of the curve on this. While you're telling me we should all be wearing eyepatches on a right exactly exactly so so it. It came from the l. Apparently came from hard to ride a bicycle. It does because you perception anyway so so. So you're you're already on this all right. They said it came from a feather market. Apparently caribbean yes. Sick parrot they think okay but some people think it came from an unsanitised beer tap at the pnc park in pittsburgh where the pirates play. But from pittsburgh. I don't wanna take that you know that's one way or another it's tied into pirates because you've got the parrot in the caribbean. Yeah or the the the pnc got now. They said that if it saves just one line just one life out of the eight billion on the planet we should all wear the eye patch and they said that a couple of weeks it might actually affect the left eye as well. It's a new variant strains. Yeah so i'm i'm getting ready. I'm ahead of the game. Oh look at this so you got to ipads a nats how you show love i.

I just wanna say for your patriotism and for your agop pay love there. It is all those in your sphere. I just wanna say kudos to you. My friend kudos to you. And it's a beautiful thing when somebody says you know what's not about me it's about you and to show my love. I'm going to wear these two eyepatches. That is so awesome. The only problem though is when you drive a vehicle. It's going to be tough. You may kill other people that you wouldn't kill you know through the infection you may you may crash into them and stuff but you know what that will be regarded as a pirate pandemic death anyway. So who's whoever's keeping score the only way you could die from these flus. So i would just say go for it dr blind and you know what we're supposed to drive by faith and not by sight various. Oh the even the idea of not wearing the eye patch in a in a way that's faithless. Okay that's trusting in the arm of the flesh and alvin. I just wanna commend you again. You drive by faith not by sight. That is awesome. I five. I hope yeah i hear it forget it said that all right forget it all right well okay anyway. I'm so glad we we But when that chance and take these off right now yes that's so selfish you i can't believe it Okay alvin in our next segment. Yes sir we're gonna do a winded from that common to my goodness In in our next segment I keep talking about this over the weeks. Ask me taxes people right in with questions. Usually thought flirt pitchy questions. I meant short pithy questioned. Whether we're the soviet thord his she questions. And i meant short pithy questions not thorpe and you went to yale. I never leave. Larry and i never. That never happened. The mom all right so anyway questions every. We're gonna do this every thursday so but today is wednesday and we had an opening somebody died from the pirate pandemic and we said you know what if they're dead. We don't want him as a guest.

"Of those destruction creation moments in history that we haven't seen in our lifetimes there's been nothing like and so is there. Is this sifting. Where the people that i would have thought were on our team. I now know are just playing ball to play all stay in power. They're kind of reading. The tea leaves finger in the wind. There are as i said earlier. Very few people who are committed to a make america great again for lack of a better term agenda who understand that we can no longer play politics as usual. It's just. It's just not going to work if we're not willing to fight. Trump was to me the ultimate warrior willing to take on. You know whether it's the deep state or whatever. Well how do you feel about that. Because we really aren't a strange moment. Where you can't say this but i can i think mitch mcconnell's skunk. I think kevin mccarthy is no better. I look at these people i thought they were on my side and realize they're not the kind of warriors we need. How do you see the party going forward when we have so many people that they simply don't seem committed when the chips are down so let me say to. The bible talks about this. It's actually about these times. Where there you talked about sifting. There's a time where those who are truly prepared to follow. Jesus and not just doing it because it's the cool thing to do well we'll find their way and the lord will reveal this. I see that happening all across the country today. I see some folks. Frank that i thought were friends. Who thought i was crazy for joining the trump administration. Goodness gracious even after you. Why did you stay. i stayed. Because he's hitler two point. Oh what is wrong with you. Having read my book. it's all laid out for everybody. Hitler two point zero run. These are my friends. These are people. I knew i knew what we were doing. I knew the mission set. That i had been given and i had this incredible privilege. And it's time it's time for the fearless. There's no time for the make that this is. This is america's moment what's taking place in our schools the crime in our cities. All of these things that we can say unraveling this most exceptional nation it fan for the real believers in the real conservatives to step forward and be absolutely fearless in doing so and obviously you know this is to me. Always god's mercy he lets things get really really bad to wake his people. And i see that happening in this country right now. That people are tolerant. People are loving. People are kind but eventually if you push them far enough and it takes a long time they finally say wait a minute wait a minute and now they're involved so you have things happening on local levels. Everybody just thought you know what trump's in office we're moving in a direction we realize as a result of is. I believe the election was genuinely stolen and it sickens me. Even to think that that might be true. It sickens me. But i think a lot of americans have woken up and so we don't even know what is going on in the grass roots level. Because you can't keep track of everything. But i think people are rising up and they're looking for folks like you and a handful of others in congress and they're saying we can. We can no longer do business as as usual. But i mean ten years ago. You're not thinking like oh no you nailed it hugh absolutely by the way i can give you two data points from the last forty eight hours. I was in south west missouri. At the ashcroft family farming it was a picnic outdoor poured rain right about an hour before the picnic. Nobody left they left. They gave me a chance. That game journey janet. Former attorney general ashcroft talk about the bible and the america and what we were all going to go through. These people. Were on fire to take back and i had people come up side.

Charlie kirks teepee usa turning point usa student action summit was i mean i don't know but i was there and i got to interview people. That normally wouldn't like mike. Mike pompeo and on the beach. You've got a great tan. I was not a great tan. And i didn't get to go to the beach and that's that's a bitter bitter thing for me that i was all the way down here in. I didn't get to hang out in the sun at all. Okay but so seriously in a couple of minutes mike. Pompeii oh folks Yla was down there. I also interviewed seth dylan of the babylon be. He's the guy behind the babylon be the ceo. And that's a great conversation. Which will air this week Jack poso a beak jack pa- sobek You probably don't know who he is but you will and you should. I've been following him on twitter. He's i won't go into it but we Caught up with him. And then dr james lindsay another guy that i don't know how to describe him. He is genius academic. Who i won't even get into it. Okay but but here's the other thing before we get to. Mike pompeo yes. Yesterday i interviewed. Ben shapiro roy. Not for this program. No c. span book tv Booknotes came to me and said eric we want you. Eric metaxas to interview ben shapiro about his new book. The authoritarian moment on c. span book tv. Wow and i said you can't afford me that we actually don't pay money. And i said see and then they said well we were desperate. And that's right. So i interviewed ben shapiro and it was really interesting because i don't really know ben and so you know it's one of these things where he's pretty serious and i figure i'm book on book tv on c. Span i've got to be serious. So i felt like i had all three hands tied behind my back but it was a good exercise because it without cracking jokes you can get a lot more done but it was a wonderful conversation and we will you know when it comes out with his pr person and we will have him on this show as a result. Show of what i did with him yesterday. I said we got to continue the conversation so he will be on this program soon next week. Next week shapiro. Yup i also should announce a couple things coming up We're gonna do these. Ask metaxas segments regularly We'll probably run it today. Just because we had some time. But i think typically we're going to do it every thursday in our to the first ten minutes of our two. It's going to be asked metaxas On instagram only. Just because it's kind complicated. Why shouldn't say instagram. Only but typically on instagram people can send in their questions. Every wednesday on my story will take the questions. So we're gonna to do this. Every wednesday ask metaxis okay but just to just because we can do some ask metaxas. Today we get some great questions. Some baffling questions. Yeah okay before we get to. Mike pompeo Do i have time. I do have time I was in maine this weekend. Now main in my mind maine is a place you drive to and it's far and that's why you never go there 'cause who drive seven hours to main it just doesn't nobody has the time well. I discovered a crazy thing. If you're invited to preach in a church in maine yes you can fly there. So i went to. Jfk airport got on a plane and she zam like eight minutes later. I land in the middle of maine bangor maine and you know what i learned. Know what it's not pronounced bangor maine. Bangor maine is wrong. Bangor bangor so i was in bangor maine and as soon as i got there. I said something about bangor. And they said it's it's bangor so bangor or bangor. Bangor maine is a place where my friend. Ken graves has a church. Now can graves. He's a living cartoon figure he's like curtis leila like there's certain people that they're they're really cartoon figures come to life. Mike lindell is another one. Ken graves is He's he's he's such a man's man he's got a voice. I can't even do his voice. You have to gargle with gravel for two decades before you can. Approximate was voice. Sounds like but he's just He's the kind of man that no matter who you are. As a guy he makes you feel effeminate. Not in a good way and i preached in his church but the night before he and his wife took me and some of the family members out to a place called. Young's it's i think it's in belfast. Maine i forget and a lobster place. You sit outside and can being a man's man he said we're gonna get you a two and a half three pound lobster now for me. That's that's kind of lobster. I'm always interested in but you can't afford that. You know if you eat in a restaurant. I it just like this place. I had two two and a half pound lobsters to and i got gout and really. My career ended right there but it was so incredible. And while we're sitting there eating lobster we're joking around about something and kens wife says something about race car.

"The first go through the voters who their second choice candidate is exactly exactly like the if neither i if no candidate gets a majority of the votes then only the first two candidates are still in a first place. Second place candidate are still in it and then for the third for all other candidates if they got votes then we look at who the second choice of those voters were and those attributed to the two candidates are still in it so it's an instant runoff election. I think it's a good system. Because i think that it is good to take account of who people's second choice would be if if if no candidate gets a majority of the votes and the reasons i think that's good as i as michael mentioned at the beginning of the show. I would like to see the possibility of more parties. Developing ranked choice voting gives people away to vote for third party candidates without playing the role of the spoiler. Because they can. They can vote for third party candidate but in the likelihood that the third party candidate doesn't win and they can still read their vote to the to the democratic or republican candidate And so in the short run that lets third parties build up and strengthen and give voters often that they can vote for them without throwing the election to the worst candidate their least favorite candidate And it also means the outcomes are going to represent the preferences ultimately the majority of the voters in the state even if it's just their second choice runoff designed to some of those same things. But i think it doesn't do it as well as ranked choice voting because it just means you have to start over. It's going to depend a lot on money like you were talking about before because if candidates have spent down all their money during the election season running up to november. It's going to be bad. Who can draw even reserves really quickly to keep campaigning for another couple of months. The electorate does change a little bit. You know maybe i. Maybe i think it's a good thing you get some people who turn eighteen years old between november and january but those people to join the electorates. Some people are going to die during that time. And they're gonna they're gonna leave the electorate so everything's a little different and kind of exhausted people and you're probably going to turn out. This georgia wanted maybe exception to that. But generally if there's a runoff another big change in the electorate is just going to be a much smaller electorate. not everybody's going back and vote. We haven't added yet an added cost. You just think it doesn't really achieve the goals of representativeness that it's designed to achieve and if there's an alternative like a choice voting. I think she's a lot better. But i but i do like ranked choice voting and i like that better than i. The post so in some states candidates could win without getting fifty percent of the vote. Actually almost every state candidate win without getting eighty percent of the vote. And i don't think that's great either because it could really mean that the majority of the voters did not want the person who who won and so. I think it is going to have some mechanism to try to work through that trade. But i wanted to mention that i won't the original question you ask i will. I will not actually ducked questions. How can surely would i. I fully expect both of the incumbents. Both of the republican senators to win odd to win these elections. And i don't think it's going to be as close as a lot of people on the left. Hope it will be if this election and really the history of studying elections has taught. I think political scientist anything. It's that incumbent almost always win. We certainly saw that here. Twenty twenty and i. I expect to see that happen. The other thing. I wanted to point out is. It's kind of sad to me. I guess it both of these. Republicans claimed That name the words their wars the management of georgia elections has become an embarrassment for the state and they call for georgia's secretary estate to resign. Who is by the way a republican and to me that is just just a example number one of i don't know how many of how far down that's sad and frankly disgusting path. People are willing to go in pursuit of in pursuit of power and holding office in it and it just makes me sad and sick. I mean if you're going to be said and sick. Mike we might as well kind of jump into the second story. Because that's what you're kind of getting it there. We you talk calling on the republican secretary of state to resign. Because of course mike pompeo. The secretary of state states mentioned this week and then failed and refused to walk his comments back. The administration is prepared for an easy transition into trump second term and at the same time as a matter of fact on friday. The final projected wins. Have come in four both in georgia and north carolina where biden has now won georgia and trump has one north carolina therefore finishing out the electoral college as a friday. And but yet we're still having conversations. I mean last week we had the big Everybody on the show. Kind of the all hands on deck showed taking a look analyzing this and a week later. We're still dealing with law firm trump's law lawsuits and in this case many of them being that already rejected. We had prepared for this show to talk about two hundred and thirty eight pages of affidavits of gop pollwatchers but in in both states where they've been filed been pulled away and so. There's a lot of questions i mean. We still have clearly a set of individuals trump at the front who is not accepting the election results and this is something that can you and i talked about earlier on and i think as i look back in and i was thinking back to what we had talked about. You actually had a more positive view of this than i did. You basically said look. Trump won't go easily into the night but it's not going to be a crisis and i'm wondering do you still stand by that. Yeah i mean. I do agree with what michael said that it's disgusting. He shouldn't be doing this. But i i really. Because of the magnitude of biden's victory he. He won big. It's probably going to turn out in the end that he won by seven or eight million votes in all of the states even the states he won by thousands of votes. There's no state closes. Florida was in two thousand and he's got a few states to spare that. There is no mechanism available. That can stop by from taking office on january twentieth. So for that reason. It's more a side show or psychological warfare something then than actual constitutional crisis. But i.

"On FLUTO TV. I'm told that we're gonna have you take five questions. Okay? Thank you, Mr President. During the campaign, you said you're not naive about how difficult it would be to unite the country. It's now three days after we were projected as the president elect, the president himself says he has won this election. His own administration has not moved forward to give you access to what you need to do to begin the work of your transition. Just a few minutes ago, the secretary of state when asked if he would cooperate with a smooth transition, he said, there will be a smooth trip. Editions way second Trump Administration I want. If you have a message for the president, who may well be watching right now. And how do you expect to be able to work with Republicans when so many have thus far refused to even acknowledge your victory? Well, first of all, We're already beginning transition were well underway and the ability for the administration in any way by fairly recognizes our win. Does not change the dynamic and all what we've announced yesterday. As you know, health group we put together today We're gonna be going moving along. Consistent manner, putting together administration White House in reviewing We're going to pick from Cabinet positions, and nothing's going to stop that. And I'm confident that the fact that they're not willing to acknowledge we want at this point is not of much consequence in our planning. What were you doing between now and January? 20th. Response to Secretary Pompeo and I also want you warn during the campaign that as the walls closed in on the president, he would behave more erratically. Yesterday he fired his defense secretary on Twitter. Are you worried that he's disabling the government? And what are you saying to the world leaders who are calling you at this point about the situation here? First of all I'm letting you know that Americans back. We're going back. I just want to get this. I'm not gonna listen. There was one point where he was asked about Pompeo and he because this was just moments ago. And hey, was he laughed about it. Mike Pompeo As secretary of state. He literally go. Secretary of State Pompeo. Hey, just kind of let it just sounded really weird. And I wanted to get it not listen to five minutes of them talking welcome back to the show. So as we finish out here, this, um I think the whole thing about getting the transition team And getting the thie say. The General Services Administration, the woman who runs that who was appointed by whoever's president at the time. They The transitioning of that usually takes place after they determined particularly when it's not any kind of contested or there's an election or there aren't any disputes in an election. And Add that particular case is not. I mean, obviously this particular there's a lot of things happening in this election that air disputed and they are verifiably dispute. I mean, it's a legitimate concerns. And so This. Accusation that somehow There that the Trump administration is is being ridiculous or anything of this nature because they're not. This is taxpayer dollars, millions of taxpayer dollars that they would open up. For every administration. I would not like to have to do that, like twice with anything. Or spend more money than we have to. So can we just wait until something's air verified and you don't even have all the the the overlords in the media haven't called all the races yet. So how are you going? I'm just saying No, I Democrats convinced me that there's so much that you can't trust elections. So we need to audit everything. I've been convinced Democrats and convinced I I'm just kind of amazed. I have to say one thing about all these people creating lists. And it is amazing to me that all of the people who are creating the list where the people there are also simultaneously, the people who yell fascist the most and also harassed Jews in New York, so I just, you know All the people who are making these lists, and they're now you have the Lincoln Project that's doing it. Their tweet was actually removed because it violated terms of service and That it's because they were in there, harassing lawyers who are on the ground overseeing the election process of the ballot counting process of the auditing process, and they were putting up their numbers and their emails listing all of these. Can we stop the whole list thing? And can we stop pretending that this group isn't any anyway? We remotely associated with any kind of GOP principal. I mean, it's just really ridiculous at this particular point. It really is. And these, I I just, um I don't know I made of I'm made of some mean words on this. I really am one other quick thing Beth and dine. Her race in Texas is 24th congressional district is absolutely official which we knew she was going to win. Her opponent, Candace Valenzuela was not going to concede at all. And then she finally had to because she saw the writing on the wall. So that is absolutely official. She was so they were trying to raise money. Raise your money, grift money off of you to try to contest and indisputably one race. Sam. So we're gonna will watch is all of this stuff comes in for sure. All of the ballot, the counting everything else. We're gonna keep our eye on the arguments there before SCOTUS as it relates to Obama care today in stupidity game. All right. We'll be Goldberg and the other harpies on. They were talking about this particular elections. What we're dealing with right now. It's not been decided. But they want you to believe that it is. Listen to.

"This is the kind of noise. We heard leading up to the. Iraq, war and This the numbers changed dramatically with the propaganda. The longer they had access to the media the anger American people got and right now you know P- trump is a punching bag and even though he may be. You know in a position to talk a little bit about our way. Our philosophy like he wants to bring troops over. From Afghanistan, and yet he he was met with resistance from Republicans on that, so he he gets no credit from the people who would like to see a change in foreign policy for either way so politically it's not gonNa do him much good, but for us to try to present the truce truth and try to convince people that nonintervention is a worthwhile philosophy, and that they should stop and think before they've decided that the ultimate. Enemy of the world ever is the current Chinese government which I don't happen to believe I, think they're they're bad news. And you have to be careful, but you know for us to. Say That we're putting on sanctions, because because they have political prisoners and and a don't follow a falling You know civil liberties and and use their people That's that's a little bit bold. When you think about some of the things, our government does to us, and how much privacy we law, so it's a bit hypocritical, but the big point i. i WanNa make is that. There's a lot of stirring a lot of animosity. And this was just one more thing closing down the consulate and that's going to not that will not help our relationship. It makes him worse in, please. Everybody certainly Rubio. Love said and. CREWS LOVES IT AND POMPEO LOVES IT and they want to keep boosting. They see this opening to really slam him. Harn I think it's dangerous. It is and as you as you mentioned it is symbolic. It was The consulate was opened in nineteen, seventy nine when the US we recognize China and started. On a new path toward good relations I think trump feels like this is a relatively risk-free thing to do. He's been very vocal about calling it. The China virus in China this and China that I think it gives them the opportunity to divert attention from Russia which he's been accused of being in the in the pay of in the back pocket of for so long and to prove that he's tough tough. I can be tough with the foreign country I think he's misreading. This and I think he's getting very bad advice from people who want to escalate with. Maybe up to, and maybe even including war I you that many of them trump included WANNA get us up to that point because it's good for for Washington's bottom line. We talk about POMPEII everything. They were talking about today. I think can be linked to POMPEO's visit to the UK very importantly. The. UK reversed his position on wall way recently and decided to join the US in banning the Chinese cell phone company, which is enormously significant. POMPEO was in the UK yesterday meeting with his counterpart, and also with the prime minister..

And what American diplomacy means to the people in that region? Also the boy scouts of America are looking to regroup after filing for bankruptcy.

Plus your take on this exposing Eagle Scout and victim of us by one of my scout leaders. I believe that this had to happen. Plus California apologizes for interment camps. Eighty years later. Let's get going today secretary of state. Mike pompeo wraps up his first visit to sub Saharan Africa. During his term he's visited Senegal Ethiopia and Angola and has spoken to business leaders about expanding trade on the continent. Secretary Pompeo is promoting the White House plan for the region called Prosper Africa which shifts US involvement away from aid and towards investment in Senegal. Pompeo announce a number of projects including a one hundred mile highway. Foreign Minister discussed how we can tighten our trade ties. Even further including infrastructure investment embracing free market policies that attract capital private capital ensuring consistent for some of the law and doubling down on anti corruption efforts of the surest way to grow prosperity in Nigeria. And all across the region. The Secretary of state has also been discussing military aid and security concerns as countries in west. Africa are combating the presence of Isis. Boko Haram al yet. The trump administration said may withdraw troops from that region. See that our investments are transparent. They're clean the administration has sent mixed signals about its priorities and interests in the conned. In more than once pompey's visit comes shortly. After the trump administration expanded its travel ban to include four African countries era tra- Nigeria Sudan and Tanzania and it's only the second visit by Secretary of State during this administration in March of two thousand eighteen. Rex tillerson had to cut his trip to Africa short and was fired the day after returning to talk about the US role in Africa and how the trump administration is doing against. Its goals there. I'm joined by Yinka. I'd go K. Africa editor for Quartz. Thanks for being with high also on the line. We have judy more. Visiting fellow at the Center for Global Development who previously served as Liberia's Minister of Public Works? Welcome to the takeaway. Things glad to be a part of the conversation Yinka. We've got this big trip right now that That the secretary is concluding right after the. Us Announces Significant List of new countries. On its travel ban. What is the message here from the US to the countries in Africa thanks? It's almost certainly a confused one. It's it's sending mixed signals To the countries that are looking to the United States as a partner if you Are Trying to work with countries you don't. Econ to the same time Be Stopping their citizens from you know going through immigration processes oil making tough people's come into the country At the very time when really America should be working closer with African countries. This is It's a great opportunity for the United States to really sort of take a lead in partnering with with Africa. Right now We are on the verge of the Africa Continental Free Trade Agreement which is going to open up trade on the continent Across the fifty four countries and the United States should be at the forefront work into partner with countries and moving forward. Judah anything to add there or I would just start by saying you know it is a good thing that a high ranking. Us government officials on the continent because international affairs the equality importance of a relationship as evidenced in the level number of high level exchanges. So having the American Secretary of state on the continent is an indication to American businesses to the US American citizens wanting to engage the continent that The US government sees the continent is important and so The sector state is visiting. I think that's a good thing but I have to be with With Inca that It it seems as if the the American American policy toward the continent is on one hand given and not a hand taken away at one of the things I adequately is the administration's budget submitted to Congress sees Africa sees the greatest a decline in terms of programs and support. I mean countries like Malawi has just done this. Great job with his democracies he's almost forty four percent decline. Liberia fifty five percent decline Guinea. A one hundred percent decline. So it's hard to imagine that you claim that this is important part of the world but you reducing in terms of your support and engagement with it at the same time. Judy what can you tell us about some of the specific proposals from the trump administration? So I guess we'll go back to the US. Two Way. Trade between the continent and and and in the United States has been declining for a while In two thousand and nine China surpassed the United States as the continent's largest trade partner as so prosper Africa. One of the things it tries to do is to double two-way trade between the United States and an continent and this is a good thing because the continent needs as many partners as a Canon doesn't want to be in in an unbalanced relationship with a single partner and so the idea here is to get more American investment on the continent more American businesses. Doing business on the continent and that's that's one of the most concrete things they're trying to do and one of the ways of doing that is to try to even the playing field for American companies on a continent so American companies have complained that Chinese Turkish And even UK companies have the direct input of the government of support of the government when they're on the continent in American companies didn't so prosper Africa. Christie's deal teams is a whole of government approach that provides support you as businesses wanting to do business in a continent so those are some of the concrete things that the prosper Africa seeks to accomplish. Let's look at the state of China China's investment in Africa Over the last fifteen years closed in on two trillion dollars according to the American Enterprise Institute and according to CNBC China Africa trade. Just two thousand seventeen was more than three times as much as us. Us Africa Trade. This China is simply take Africa more seriously than the. Us does absolutely has the. Here's the key thing to Really the way to think about The China Africa and relationship and compared to the United States. You know the Chinese the huge strategic advantage that the Chinese have who the United States is not necessarily. You often hear about loans. And they're building all these two bridges and we'll have you huge huge cusack. Jim and they do all this great work. All you know some of its controversial for the real the real advantage the Chinese have over over the Americans is the play the long game. They're not they're not just there on a kind of you know what's going to happen in x four eight years election cycle. What they're thinking long term Alicia looking in Africa and they say we recognize this because this was US thirty forty years ago and we can make investments. Yes we can make some money. Yes but we'll be we'll be together with these with these countries over the long term. And what you've seen to see with the United States is. It's just what can happen. Now what can we get out of this right now and really Africa is a long term? You think about this country's is a long term project and it's not just project it's just the reality of the world by the end of the century. Forty percents of old working. People will be Africans. That's just the demographics of the way the world is is changing. So this isn't somewhere you know if you're thinking even if you're thinking America first America I should actually be about. How can we partner with these countries more comprehensively for the long term and not just for Let's cut budgets here. Let's move choose there. It's really thinking about integrating which is really what the Chinese have done Judy when I think about the kinds of images that You know I grew up with in terms of the US view of Africa. Various parts of Africa. You think about the kind of comments that attributed to the president Certainly bordering on either Patronizing or or you know. Just certifiably racist is. Are these attitudes really shaping official policy and you know business.

"So this week. The House of Representatives should be transmitting articles of impeachment to the Senate Secretary. POMPEO is of course right in the middle of that scandal as well. Have you gotten a chance to speak with him or anyone inside his administration. Since all of this testimony began to come out in November from people who worked closely with Pompeo on what was happening in the Ukraine. I have not spoken to him But I you know I have spoken to people in inside and around the State Department and I think it's impossible to see The Ukraine scandal as it has morphed and unfolded as has not having a major impact on his political future You know before all of that It seemed very clear that he was headed towards running for Senate in Kansas in twenty twenty You know a as the first step in trying to set himself up to run for president in twenty twenty four. The Ukraine scandal has really had a deleterious effect on his Running of the State Department on Morale Inside the State Department and I think in many ways has tied his his future so inextricably to Donald Trump himself that Mike pompeo ultimately decided not to run run for the Senate and is going to stay on as secretary of state. And he you know. I think that there is no who future for Mike Pompeo That is not aligned perfectly. With and as a key member of the trump administration we were talking about how Pumpido has really consolidated power. He's installed allies all over the administration but consolidating power like that. It means that when things go wrong he also have the full responsibility. Yes that's true if you admit that anything is wrong and You know I think that sort of part of the wonder of the trump administration is their ability to no matter what happens wins Declare victory and say that this is exactly what they intended all along so the key question has become will people like secretary pompeo actually testify when this trial moves forward in the Senate. I wonder what you think secretary. Pompeii oh the witness would even look like. I don't think we have any idea What Mike Pompeo As a witness would look like in part because I would imagine that there is no one less likely to testify then. Mike Pompeo That you know I I. I'll bet donald trump himself would testify before Mike pompeo would And that's because for pompeo there is absolutely absolutely no upside to participating in this impeachment inquiry in any way I you know I. It has already already mind his moral moral authority within his own building and any attempt Any testimony that it opens even the smallest crack Between him and the president would go against every impulse that Mike pompeo has has had since the day that he started the administration. There's an irony there where it's you know. Mike pompeo made his name in the Benghazi Investigation Russian. Talking to Secretary Clinton this is sort of the the oddest irony of the this whole saga. Is You know Mike Pompeo. Ah The congressman would tear apart on the witness stand. Mike Pompeo the secretary of State That there is of all of the people who have reinvented themselves for the trump administration. There is no debate that I would rather see than between it.

When Garret met Secretary Pompeo they spoke on the seventh floor of the State Department surrounded by oil paintings of previous secretaries of state? I look at these pictures Pompeo said and I think oh my Gosh Madison. Monroe Jefferson Pompeo. Which of those doesn't belong in that group? This this quote makes pompeo seem a little wide eyed Garrett says it's hard to know how much of that's genuine because he knows pompeo can read an audience it's blend in Garrett Calls Pompeo the Chameleon Mike Pompeo has a very off shocks vibe to to the way that he portrays himself in his public image and You know I I don't know exactly how much of it is in affect Haitian but he is not exactly the creature of the heartland that he purports to be You know this is someone who was was educated at West Point went to Harvard law. School worked in big law in Washington. DC I think when you talk talk to people around him talk to people who know him One of the things that is constant about his career and his image image is that he has been very successful at sort of reinventing himself at each turn of his career to be the thing that he needs to be for that role. Yeah I mean. He became well known as a congressman from Kansas. But that's not his home state right no Not his home state. It's his adopted adopted home state. He moved out there to work alongside some of his West Point colleagues to build in aerospace industrial manufacturing firm known as fair industries. And it was actually there that he first met some of the people who are going to be the most important backers of his political life. The coke brothers who were early investors in fair and for whom. He did a lot of business during his time in Kansas. Eventually as he turned to politics they became One of his biggest backers and in Congress he was the number one recipient recipient in the country of Coq. Money Pompeo came to Washington as a tea party congressman boosted by all that private money. He was in the House of Representatives the last time there was a roiling controversy at the State Department the death of a US ambassador in Benghazi Libya. We've read the emails. We've read everything that we could get our hands on. It's taken got us a long time to get it but I will tell you just described all of this other information that you relied upon and it doesn't comport with the record that this committee has been able to establish today. I Want I want you to take a look. He was one of the most vocal and versus difference. Attackers of Hillary Clinton on Benghazi. Can you account for for why that is why we have an increasing requests and yet no increase in security. We'll congressmen pounding. The table over needing cooperation from the State Department urban and how Dare Hillary Clinton and the State Department not bow to the whims of congressional investigators. Garrett says this scene of Mike Pompeo peyot railing against Hillary Clinton for lack of transparency. It seems ironic now after months of POMPEII stonewalling Congress in the Ukraine investigation. Now you know switch seats and all of a sudden Mike pompeo's the one up there saying you know I'm GonNa do everything I can to protect the independence of the State Department and I'm not going to abide by these congressional subpoenas and Congress has no right to be digging into this information and I. It's arguments sort of exactly opposite that which he made as congressman in the exact same type of investigations of the State Department. During Hillary Clinton's John's tenure. I guess it shows exactly what you were saying before which is he has this chameleon like quality of adopting to the scenery that he needs to adapt to it. Yes and and that I think it makes it very hard to know what our Mike Pompeo's core beliefs and does he have any POMPEII was performance on the house. Select Committee on Benghazi made him memorable especially for Mike Pence Garrett says it was pence who recommended mended Pompeii Oh to head of the CIA. When president trump took office when he got that role? It's interesting it sounds like he saw all the opportunity and he began making sure he had as much face time with the president as possible he began giving him the daily intelligence. Brief switch hadn't been given by the head. CIA In recent years. Is that correct. Yeah this is one of the most interesting examples of sort of the the bureaucratic elbows that Mike Pompeo can throw the president's daily brief the that sort of Oval Office Security Freddie briefing and intelligence briefing that the president is supposed to get every day has traditionally in recent years been given by the Director of National Intelligence. Now when Mike Pompeo's started as director he started out giving those briefs and then once Dan Coats was confirmed affirmed as the director of National Intelligence. He didn't give it up. It was a moment where Mike Pompeo realize. Is that getting that daily face time. With president trump was gold that you know in this administration where trump operates with with an incredibly small circle of advisers. You're either in front of the president in person or you don't exist and you know. Dan Coats when I talked to people in the director of National Intelligence Office. They said that basically like Dan Coats never have the chance to develop his own independent relationship relationship with president trump. And that's one of the reasons that that relationship didn't end up working out and Dan Coats ended up quitting last year and on Peo- started installing friends within the administration to he genus bowl. Join him as his deputy at the CIA. She's now running that agency. How did he sort of build his allies within this White House? Yeah this is one of the most remarkable aspects of the palm peyot world And I think one of the things that many people outside of Washington don't realize is that as Mike Pompeo has vanquished these rivals. The person person who stays behind is often a Mike pompeo loyalist Gina Hassle his deputy at CIA became the do CIA CIA director. The Defense Department at the Pentagon Once gymnast was thrown out or or I should say quit Mark Esper- who was actually Mike pompeo's classmate at West Point was installed as the new defense secretary and one of the things that I think you do see in the Iran actions of these last two weeks is that there is very little daylight anymore between the different members of trump's national security team and one of the reasons for that I think is a people now understand there is no point joined to opposing Donald Trump. That that's a very quick way to earn a ticket out of the administration but be that Mike Pompeo is making sure sure that sort of at every turn the voices are people who not necessarily are going to defer to him but are going to agree with his worldview. You know we talk so much about how this is a reality show presidency but listening to you describe how Mike Pompeo has approached his job and and made that into longevity it really does sound like survivor more than anything else. Yes and Mike Pompeo. At this point is effectively. The final survivor geared says Pompeii was a survivor. Because now as secretary of state POMPEO's kept working the same playbook loyalty above all else. Mike Pompeo has made clear that there is no policy that Donald Trump believes that Mike Pompeo does is not believe also you know I asked him to point me to a single place where he disagrees with the president and he refused to do so which I thought was a really remarkable in telling moment in our interview. Yeah I mean you've said Pompeo views his role as more of the president's chief foreign policy staffer instead instead of America's top diplomat. Can you just explain the difference there. Yeah I mean so for one thing you know the the Secretary Harry of state a cabinet official has a slightly different role than an a White House adviser. You know the the White House advisor in any role you you know. Your goal is to execute the policy positions of the president of the United States. When you are a cabinet official though you're supposed to be slightly lately different you're supposed to represent the the prerogatives and norms and traditions of your institution and the State Department sort of has it's own agenda? It has things that it considers important across American history. And you know you're you're supposed to represent your workforce to the president to a certain extent and and that is something that Mike Pompeo it does not do the president trump's budget last year proposed dramatic draconian cuts to the State Department's Budget and Mike Pompeo not only didn't appear to argue against them but was willing to in appearances on Capitol Hill. Say That that he didn't think that.

"The administration said this. This strike was done they send imminent threat with the story. You said we didn't know precisely when we know precisely where that's not the definition of imminent. The president has also suggested that there was some sort tacking plant against an embassy at several embassies. Can you clarify. Did you have specific information about an imminent threat and did have anything to do with our embassies. We had specific information on an imminent threat. And now's threat stream included attacks on US embassies period full stop. You said you didn't know precisely whether you didn't know precise completely true. Those are completely consistent thoughts. I don't know exactly which minute we don't know exactly which it would've been executed but it was very clear. Now hold on. I'm actually GONNA play that again for you because I just find that to be so incredibly important to hear like this is this is this is. This is one of the best examples of actual Orwellian using that term. That I have ever seen in my lifetime like preemptive self defense is pretty damn on spot spot on for that term but recognize what he just did right there she straight up saying by the way she's accurate you just. The definition of eminent is not even close to what he's making it out to be but he is standing up there and saying that that's imminent it is for sure and she goes well. You just said you didn't know where where. How does that make? How do those two things lineup? And he goes out there. They're perfectly fine. They lineup great. We didn't know anything about where I was going to happen but it was an imminent threat. Move on right it just like forces them down. You have to recognize how aggressive if he gets. He does not like when you challenge what he has to say. And you can just even when people are asking questions. He doesn't like you can see him. Staring daggers out them like he is very very very unhappy that he even has to be St- asked questions and how dare you asked me about you. Know what this weather stems from that. He actually believes what he's doing is righteous which comme actually believe that. He thinks these surreptitious illegal actions are for some long sought Israeli war that blend the world or whatever. Mike pompeo literally set on record record that we're going to do this until the rapture right until Israel's war and everything like this is what he's openly espoused. Think about that looks. Looks like we just just lost like everybody tuned in right there so it just dropped down to one hundred people. I wonder why I wonder why. But I'm going to play this again. I'M GONNA play this against you can watch it understand what what is being said right there and understand that he is lying to you like overwhelmingly lying. And then just gin forcefully making you be quiet about about it and trying to gaslight you and make you feel like you're wrong by just continuing to assert his forceful point..
