'The King of Talk': Remembering Larry King
"Larry King has died. He was 87 in a career that spanned 60 years. Larry King interviewed just about everybody. Reporter Jeff Lunden has this appreciation. With his trademark suspenders and his deep baritone voice tinged with a Brooklyn accent. Larry King spoke with Presidents George Bush is our honored guest for the full hour. Next on Larry King Live World leaders Moammar Qaddafi. The leader of the nation of Libya, celebrities, the brilliant Barbra Streisand, authors, scientists, comedians, athletes and on and on and on. I'm always engrossed in the guest. Larry King spoke with Jesse Thorn on the turnaround podcast in 2017. I'm always listening to the answer. I'm always learning, So I guess I'm better every day at learning. The Brooklyn born King actually was an indifferent student, but said he always had an innate curiosity when we would go to dodge it. All my friends wanted autographs at the injury. I never asked for an autograph, but I would walk with the players is they're going to their cars asking questions. Why'd you bunt? Why they do this in the third inning. My curiosity is still insatiable. King began his career is a DJ in Miami, and it's where he got his name is well. When a station manager told him his given surname, Zeiger was too ethnic. He chose King from a liquor ad in a newspaper. By the late 19 seventies, King had an overnight talk show on national radio. Then the 1985 Ted Turner hired him for his new network, CNN. Media commentator and author. Bill Carter, who's a CNN contributor, says the timing was perfect. Picking up something like Larry King may love sense because he had Establish himself kind of as a guy who could get big guests. They could have big names and promoted and became sort of the linchpin of their prime time lineup, and King stayed there for 25 years. Some critics complained that he was too chummy with celebrities and lob softball questions. It is guests. His strategy was I'm never gonna make the guests uncomfortable. And that means not only will they come back, but they'll tell their friends. He won't ask you about that ugly divorce of yours. You know, he'll ask you about your favorite movie, so he didn't challenge people, But he did get information. He was pretty good at that, like when he talked with ex President Richard Nixon. Well, I don't want to dwell in the Watergate thing that's been covered so well. But some personal things when you drive by Those collections of buildings. The hotel the two apartment houses the office building, You feel weird, funny. No, I never give it a thought. Never given a thought. Never given a thought. That's one place where you just don't look back. As far as Watergate is. I know you don't look up at the buildings themselves. Not at all. Not a matter of fact, I've never been in the Watergate. Larry King famously didn't do a lot of preparation before his interviews, the less I know. Better Now, That sounds strange to people. Like If you wrote a book. I wouldn't read the book for interview do because I would then know too much about the book and I'm in the same boat as the audience. They haven't read the book, but King knew the national zeitgeist. He covered the first O. J. Simpson trial every night, says Bill Carter. He basically started the cable monomania move. We're going to just cover this story. That's it In a way. It was perfect for life because it was celebrity oriented. It was in the news, but it was not political. Ultimately, CNN canceled King show because it wasn't political competition from Fox and MSNBC took its toll on the ratings. But King was a survivor. He was married eight times and had Quinn couple bypass surgery after a massive heart attack, and King took his talk show to streaming video and kept on working for NPR news.

"president george w bush" Discussed on WTOP
"74 in Arlington, 76. In Lanham. It's 3 11. Former President George W. Bush says the American people can have confidence that this election was fundamentally fair. Its integrity will be upheld, and its outcome is clear. He says that in a statement that no matter how you voted your vote counted and the former President Bush Second President George W. Bush says President Donald Trump has the right to request recounts and pursue legal challenges with any unresolved issues to be properly adjudicated. In his words, Bush says Now is the time when we must come together for the sake of our families and neighbors and for our nation and future. President elect Joe Biden will launch and agency review team this week. It's the group of transition staffers that has access to key agencies in the current administration to smooth over that transition of power. Eric Cam, a political analyst for the BBC, talk to Dmitri and myself about what kind of changes we can expect in Washington. We're already seeing them play out. We heard from the president elect yesterday, saying that he will announce this task force on Monday. That will begin looking at what type of policies he can implement something he hits the ground regarding Corona virus. In addition to that, I think, given that Joe Biden has been in Washington and as you say, a creature of Washington for so long, I think also, what we will see from this president is an olive branch, particularly to the opposition party. Given where we think the makeup may lie and the Senate in particular, But I think what you will see it Joe Biden's emphasis on governing and Mohr importantly in order to do that he has to work with Congress, and if there is continued divided government that's going to make his work. Even more difficult, given he will be the first president along time to actually have the opposition party in control of one of the branches of Congress. And so I think that's something that he will have to address. But again, I think, given those long and historic relationship that he has I think he will being heavily on them to begin to move things immediately soon as he hits the ground running regarding that agency review team. Have you heard any stories about a lack of cooperation from the Trump Administration? Because they do have to work together here during this transition? You know, I think that's actually one of the most under reported stories is the transition process that actually has been playing out for quite some time. Now this is actually Constitution and legally mandated to happen or what we do know is that process has actually been moving pretty smoothly. We do know that the Trump team has been working with The Biden team providing those clearances so that that the Biden team or is able to get many of their people in place as soon as they'll need to. Ah, no, I think that's one of the stories where we were. We do actually find cooperation between the Trump administration and the biting team, and I hope that gets mohr notice and attention in the days ahead. We've heard a Joe Biden say that one of his first goals is to unite the country. Is that going to be his biggest challenge off the block? Oh, absolutely. It will be, but not only when we talk about uniting the country, I think one of the you know the first things we automatically think about is how do you bring in those 70 million Trump supporters. Into a governing structure. But also we have to recognize that Joe Biden also has some work to do within his own party as well. There are those far less progressives who believe that they played a role in the victory. You know, what's that saying? Winning? Has you know many, many hands moving is an orphan or something like that. And I think Joe Biden is going to have his work cut out to try to find the lane for progressives in the party because we're already hearing some sniping that the transition team is looking at some Republicans. Who Biden may actually put into his Cabinet. Now, that's not unusual. We have seen George W. Bush have Democrats in his Cabinet. Barack Obama certainly had Republicans in Hiss. Donald Trump did not have people from the opposite party and his to the larger but I think there's going to be work for fighting to do not only on the right but also on the far left as well. That is Eric Camp, political analyst for the BBC. Locally, freshman Democratic representative Abigail Span Burger has kept her seat in a competitive Virginia congressional race. The former CIA operations officer defeated Republican challenger Nick Freytas. In a close race that was called just today Frighten us is a former Army Green beret.

Muscling up to China and 25 years since Srebrenica
"Tom Switzer, he and welcome to another episode off between the lines now today on the program will be commemorating the twenty fifth anniversary of Europe's worst massacre since the Holocaust in ninety, ninety, five more than eight thousand people died in Shrimp Nitsa. The town was supposed to be a U N protected safe haven in the vicious civil war that tore Yugoslav apart instead the civilians ended up being massacred by Bosnian Serbs. Were lightning fast with their superior weapons. They easily overran the lightly. I'm Bosnian government troops and the token full civilian peacekeepers. The UN's Valley to protect the civilians inspired Washington to launch unilateral action against Serbia and end the civil war. Would things be the same today now? That's later in the program, but first defense. Last week the Morrison. Government launched a defence strategy and force structure review now the move signals a major shift away from the strategy outlined in the last defence white paper. Remember that just four years ago in two thousand sixteen. It plotted out Australia's strategic costs for the next decade. But that White Paper has as we know been rapidly overtaken by Vince covert China or that now the new review has promised two hundred and seventy billion dollars over the next decade to enhance Australia's defence capabilities with renewed focus on areas like Saba and spice capabilities and the possible development of hop sonic weapons will be fitting aircraft with long-range anti-ship missiles, increasing underwater surveillance and boosting fuel ammunitions reserves. Now, underscoring the seriousness of the shift, the Prime Minister even drew comparisons to the nineteen thirties and the lead up to world. War Two that period of the nineteen thirties. Is Been Something I've been revisiting on a very regular basis and when you connect by the economic challenges and the global uncertainty. It can be very haunting, but is the money too much or not enough is going to all the right places, and we'll do enough to safeguard Australia from China's increasing assertiveness and is rapidly growing military capabilities. What's the role of Australia's diplomacy? And all of this will joining me to discuss this at three distinguished guests. By skill is professor of Asia Pacific Security Studies at Macquarie University Holiday Bites. Thank you good to be here Melissa Conley. Tar is a research fellow at the Asia Institute at the University of Melbourne. Hi There Melissa could to speak again Tom. And Pay. The Jennings is executive director of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute. Tom No. Can you talk us through the top of scenarios and potential conflicts that the defense review is preparing us for the scenario that the review is focusing on is one involving a high end conventional conflict, so I've gone to the days of stabilization operations in t more Counterterrorism operations in Afghanistan This document is preparing foresight on onsite conflict. Involving countries that have sophisticated military forces. And, of course, the document doesn't say. I don't think it would be reasonable to expect it to say. That China is the problem. But let me tell you China is the problem that is the now neoplasia competitive that way of thinking about when we think about what's adequate in terms of the topic of military capability we need to have. and to does reflect to change. From past years Tom I recall when I started by defense career, we were thinking much more about the risks presented by Indonesia, and the so called low level in cushions in the northwest. Of course, that's no longer features in anyone's strategic thinking. Really it's about China and the risks that the People's Republic is presenting to all of its neighbors in abroad since in the Indo Pacific region and beyond I cabinet crudely putting it some sites laying the groundwork for fortress Australia US sign. This is preparing us to join a potential use LID. Containment slash war against China for example to protect Taiwan Peter Jennings. I think that is it covers a spectrum of possibilities. One possibility which I think is Epson you were in terms of language of the document is that we might conceivably end up having to face military conflict without being able to rely on the direct combat support of the United States, and that's what leads to discussions around extra stockpiling munitions and fuel insightful. But I think in general terms. Yes, the expectation is that Australia. Through its history has been a country that forms coalitions usually have like minded partners, the share the same types of objectives. And the the plan will design the Defense Force. Really gives us the capacity to do that with Rachel Ellis lecture, example, Japan but also with our traditional ally the United States okay bates skill. You've recently completed a review of China's defense capabilities and its recent military modernization, specifically looking at the implications for Australia Wind you expect the Peo- The People's Liberation Army and its navy. When do you expect them to have the capability to project power as far as Australia annual Pacific knives, well in many respects Tom, they already can I mean they have the long range missile capabilities to do that? Know as a from a standoff position launched from their own from their own homeland against hours. But what I think, the the new strategy is looking at is really the development of capability over the next ten fifteen twenty years, and that's by the Chinese own own acknowledged calendar that they would be able to by that time of mass, a large enough capability, both in terms of its long range strike, you know striking from their own homeland, but also bill to project. Project Power passed the so-called first and second island change and being a position to more directly threatened through those platforms Australian security. So you know we're talking ten or fifteen year window here and I think given the time it does take to try and respond to develop the the deterrent and defense capabilities for Australia. That's that's you know that's in some ways a short window. for Australia to be mobilizing in reaction Melissa Tali. What's the role of a strong diplomacy and all these well I think it needs to be growl. And one of the concerns when we look at the deteriorating strategic environment is we think all that's a defense problem? And so when the prime minister launches the strategic update with those comparisons with the nineteen thirties. It pushes US toward seeing in purely military terms but we don't just want to say things in that security lands, we want to think about all of the parts about national power projection, so that's diplomacy and development as well as defense I think if if people thought about it I think what we invest in all three strongly, but that's not where it is if you look at federal budget fifty. Fifty nine billion to defense and less than seven billion to diplomacy and development together the lowest point with ahead in our history and I think we missing that opportunity. If we don't take US seriously, the way that diplomacy and development can shape things in the world so I was struck. Today was a defendant looking at the latest poll on what are the major concerns that Australians have at the moment of the top threats in the world and the first five, a role nontraditional that drought, environment, disaster, climate change, pandemics, and downtown, global economy, and those places where you know military spending isn't going to help shape that environment. So we need to have an effect on those. We need to be thinking much more about what we can do in the diplomacy and development to mind Peter Jennings. What would you say in to Melissa's observations? Because they reflect a certain mindset that that perhaps we should be focused more on non state actors rather than say China for instance well, I think all of these you know threats that have to be taken seriously. I'm and simply because we're living in the middle of a pandemic for example, doesn't the climate change is gone away in this no longer going to present a problem to us. I guess what I'd say. Is that the you know the five things Melissa listed? That were in the featured in the low e Poland terms of popular concerns. Are also the things which could. In different ways late to the risks of conflict escalating in the Indo Pacific region generally so You know my my view, please while I would like to see spending on diplomacy increased. While I. Say Development Assistance is being something which is effectively the United soft in of Australian power, and the military is the hot end of Australian power. I think. The message against all of these areas is that we have just been underinvesting for decades underinvesting for decades, so we're we're all. High fiving ourselves at just reaching about two percent of gross national product, being spent on defense, but that is compared to what we spending in cold or years, which was sometimes between three and a half percent in four percent of rustic product. So what we have grown used to Tom I would say is. Free written on the United. States code tiles of security for for decades. We've dramatically under. Invested in the things that we need to do to strengthen Australia's position, not just militarily, but also diplomat. A now. We're rather surprised to hear the news that Gosh the bill is a lot more expensive than we really thought. It was only if you've got that confidence in the US. and. In fact, the whole trump stories, the story of the Americans really big being fed up with the rest of the world, thinking that the US can fund the bill for their security, so we're going to have to do more and I think we're going to have to do it against multiplicity of areas not. Justin sought the defense organization. We'll some scholars such as you want and James Current from the University of Sydney. They say that this document sounds a lot like an acknowledgement that the US might not always be there to help us out. By are we starting to plan for more independent Australian defense posture I think it would be a wise move to keep that option open when you think of the capabilities that the Chinese developing in which do have a direct pose a direct threat to Australia or could do so. In many respects, the I think the types of threats that you might not expect an immediate or even timely response on the part of the United States what I'm thinking here. Cyber capabilities is a huge priority for the Chinese. We already know what they see the sort of capability. They can wield against Australia and that's not the sort of thing you can expect a kind of cavalry to. Lead the charge from from Washington to come to Australia's defence slowly long range strike capability on the part of the Chinese capability. They already have in which are going to continue to develop. which could threaten Australia down the road now? These are capabilities that I think that Australia's going to have to develop their own defenses for. They can certainly do that with United States, but again it's not necessarily the sort of threat that we would expect some sort of traditional ally joint response not to make it well. Some of are in listeners will email me and they'll say that if Uncle Sam struggles to police. It's own CDs. Melissa. How on Earth Can Uncle Sam Police? The Asia Pacific region in the face of a rising China. What's your sense about us staying power in the next decade or two in look? It's difficult One of the things that strategic update looks at is more threats to the global rules order, and unfortunately the you know, the US is part of that. the US is not along with the strategies interest on things like global trading system, and a number of international issues like global health where we would say you need to be supporting. A Global Response that said I don't think the strategic update will be read negatively in. Washington, it's my guess. it very clearly couched in terms that I think the US will lock about Australia contributing more and having more self. that could be seen as a statement that we think that the US might not have outback, but can also be seen as something that the US has been for for a long time. I particularly liked a few elements of the update things like making sure that we have. You know material ammunition You know that aren't going to be disrupted. Buckle supply trying having more capability eight industrial cut suffering capability here antiques fuel reserves, which is not as long sane as an issue for us, so I mean those are things that are worth investing in. Regardless of US resolve because as we've seen from COVID, we know that supply chain can be disrupted very quickly and easily, and it's worth having eligibilities. Cepeda Jennings bite skill and Melissa Conley Toilet and Melissa. The Pacific step up last year. That realigned Australia's development budget to deal with some of the strategic challenges posed by China in the Pacific Do you think it goes far enough? The step up was followed recently by strategies new International Development Policy Partnerships for recovery, and that's made it very clear that strategies focus should be on the Pacific and also southeast. Asia including. Indonesia and team August. I think that has a very clear statement about what we want. In the region of being entrusted trusted development partner and influencing those societies that we think positive for four region. Again you're going to. You're going to say you. Hear this from me all the time, but again the problem is that we not really making much invasive lunch, so partnerships for recovery head no new money it talked about the massive challenges that covered as as creating for for the for the Pacific, and for for our region broadly, and the only funding announcement was that we're going to repurpose the money. We would have spent on sending Australian. Volunteers in scholarship holders. And we're GONNA use that so I I suppose I. Feel a little bit with all the areas, not actually include district update in that as well that what we've seen through the foreign policy, White Paper and International Development Policy through to to the defense. Strategic Updike is. We talk about how. how? What a time! These these frosty leaving a contested difficult awful environment that we've now got to leave in and the Dow L. Easy Times over, and then we say, and we're not gonNA. Give any new money so I mean the defense announcement is essentially just that we're going to continue to you know, extrapolate out the money that was planned to be spent in the twenty twenty six, and we're going to extrapolate that out to twenty thirty terabytes skill. Do we risk getting into a bidding war for influence in the Pacific? I don't know if it's a risk. If it is a risk worth worth taking. I mean obviously the Pacific region is so extremely important Australia's future. Both for for defense reasons for regional engagement for diplomatic reasons, developing reasons and the like. so It's quite possible that we're entering in a more competitive phase with China in this. SITES WRIST BYTES I'm talking about more the budgetary concerns he because in the wake of the Corona Virus Crosses. There'll be serious limits on how we can spend on these things scholley. Yes, there is and party left to be be developed for that, but you know when you're talking about your own backyard. I mean I I. I don't think it's the kind of country that can simply. Pretended it's by itself getting back pay to Jennings to the region, generally in the rise of what. Angus Campbell is of the Defence Force he's talked about the rise of political warfare, the idea of grey zone warfare things like cyber attacks, economic coercion influence operations that fall below the traditional threshold of war. He says we need a whole of government response to it. I, you seeing that whole of government approach happening in Campbell, or is this Manley focus on defense and the spy agency so far Peter Jennings. It probably is focused on the national security agency's Tom. That's not too surprising because you'd expect them to sort of pick up on the risks I. But General Campbell is right. It does need to be all government is. There's a whole lot of things happening there that simply cannot and should not be done by defense organizations. and. I think that realization is slowly dawning. Along as both of the speakers have said that actually ladyship comes with cost of infrastructure is going to play that role, but you know, give you a small example of this we. We have lost the ability to broadcast into the South Pacific and Southeast Asia. In a way that we used to very successfully over over decades to give us the capacity to do that. We're probably talking about you know that. He million a year forty million a year, which sounds a lot of defend. It's nothing if you're in the Defense Department. Let me tell you. But you need to be able to do things like that. To be the truth teller in the region to actually tell the region that there are alternatives to Chinese Communist Party authoritarianism I think that's what's needed with responding to this grey zone on threat. Is Actually to be the truth teller. In this part of the will and getting our system in Cambridge used to that reality to understanding what needs to be done. To starting at different type of conversation with our region. With our own people for that matter that that is a sort of a psychological change which I can see happening, but we're not quite yet. There's a bit of work still to be done to get to that point Melissa. Conley Tyler. Is, just responding on that. I agree entirely with what pitcher saying on on broadcasting. It's a small investment, such a an increasing influence. It should be Brian and I hope that did that's being seen. I think having defense voices. I will help a lot in a banks, seriously I'm but just went. When you ask Tom Balaton host government and what's happening there? There are some really good examples, so for example win. This Pacific step pop started an office of the Pacific was established in that apartment and tried and each job. He's to be that coordinating body, and it's bringing together the. The defense, the development and the diplomacy in a way that he's gone to maximize our influence. and I've noticed this a lot more discussion about that that three. How do you bring defense development diplomacy communities together? I'm involved in initiate the Pacific. Four Day and I think a lot of people not talking about what more we can do for that that joined up coordination to make the most about national instruments by skill. You're an expert on China. The elephant in the room of course is China doing need to be careful not to overestimate China's military strength. What about the weaknesses? Exactly right I mean you have to know your enemy's weakness as well as their strengths in the case of China, they are undertaking enormous reforming organization effort. They're pouring billions of dollars into new capabilities, but there's a lot of things we need to recognize I. Mean One is that the Chinese have not fought a shooting war and more than forty years. They are have no. They have zero experience in high end combat against a serious. Adversary, scenario, so that's not to downplay them, but to understand that they've got enormous obstacles to overcome that day. Themselves acknowledge that they themselves. No, they have to overcome, and that's why we had this window that we've been talking about. A fifteen to twenty years. to try and develop capabilities to get in front of the kinds of things that the Chinese want to bring to bear around. Around, twenty thirty or twenty, thirty, five, twenty, forty, paid-up Melissa to be continued. Thanks so much for being on our in. Thank you, tell my pleasure. Thank you, Tom. That was paid jennings. He's executive director of the Australian strategic pulsing suit by skill professor of Asia Pacific Security Studies at Macquarie University and Melissa Commonly Tyler. She's a research fellow at the Asia Institute at the University of Melbourne. These between the lines with Tom Switzer. Coming next, we're going to replay a version of a segment from between the lines. I 'cause commemorating the massacre of Bosnian Muslims at shredded Nitsa on the eleventh of July nodding ninety. Five twenty five years ago this week. More than eight thousand people were killed by Serb forces. It was the worst massacre. Europe had seen since the Holocaust. Serve softening up Trevor Nature for the army's final push into the town. Town of course was supposed to be a safe haven protected by the United Nations, but the civilians ended up being sitting ducks as I woke Larry. Hollingsworth Remembers I. Myself Feel Devastated and ashamed I was there with them? When we told them that it was a safe haven I watched. Many of these people walk in with the minimal possessions into shreds, knowing that it was a safe haven, and now they're fleeing out because we've let them down, let them down to the extent that within dies. About Twenty three thousand women and children were deported, and about eight thousand Muslim men and boys left behind where executed and buried in mass graves. Now, reports from the time described, frightening scenes stiffen overawed from medicines on frontier. Speaking he. Loading some of the children and women into buses, but there's no indication as to where it was buses, going with seen some horrifying streaming, going on women and children going into the buses being taken away from their family This was going on with a lot of crying a lot of panicking. The slaughter had been planned carefully and executed with precision. All the wall Dutch. Pace is literally stood by, and did nothing indeed even when the Serb assault on Srebrenica was imminent. in-command is still rejected Kohl's racetracks. Positions. Pope John Paul. The second declared ribbon Nitsa a defeat for civilization as media reports begins to reveal the scale of the unfolding tragedy. The UN says nine hundred thousand people are still unaccounted for. About some became clear as government soldiers emerging from the forest in central Bosnia, told of horrific massacres at the hands of the Serbs one young. People executing them on spot, but this didn't come out of the blue. By the time this massacre took place the civil war that tore the former Yugoslavia. Repot was heading into its fourth year. More than a million people have been displaced, and the world became familiar with a new term ethnic cleansing. So? Who is to blame for these well? Let's start with the United. Nations from ninety two to ninety, five shrivel Nitsa was the world's first union declared civilian syphon. It was supposed to to her aggression. It was supposed to aggression and set the scene for political negotiations to end hostilities between the Bosnian Serbs, and Muslims, but the UN soldiers in the SIPHONS. They were bedeviled by problems. If you declare an area safe haven in the name of the United Nations. Nations if you tell the people if they are safe in the name of the United Nations you have got to put the troops on the ground, and it's no good for politicians say yes, we go for safe havens, but we're not gonNA put the troops meanwhile the Europeans vacillated and equivocated failing miserably to cope with across at its own back door. America was also reluctant to get involved as then President George Bush senior explained in Nani Nani to. I? Something because I learned something from Vietnam. I am not going to commit US forces until I know what the mission is to the military. Tell me that it can be completed until I know how they can come out. You have ancient rivalries that have cropped up as as Yugoslavia's dissolved or getting dissolved, and it isn't going to be solved by sending in the eighty second airborne, and although on the campaign trail that Ye Bill Clinton pledged to reverse the appeasement of that bushes of Belgrade as President Clinton allowed the Balkans to bleed for three more years. French President Jacques Chirac was moved to declare quote, the position of the leader of the free world vacant. Trinite Sur changed all that having done nothing the before during the mass killings in Rwanda Clinton was galvanized into action, and crucially he cut the United Nations out of the Decision Chine on August thirty Washington led a night bombing campaign against the Serbs the NATO action began early this morning. The harsh light of fires and explosions coloring the night sky. Some people watched the bombardment from their houses, but after more than ten thousand deaths here in the last three years, most Sarajevans had given up any hope of outside intervention. Last night it came on a scale which could yet change the course of this war by the end of not ninety five sixty thousand nine hundred troops, including twenty thousand Americans were on the ground in Bosnia. Pace was declared. The BOEKEN's wars ended only because the US finally acted. He's President Clinton in November ninety five my fellow Americans in this new era there are still times when America and America alone can and should make the difference for peace. The terrible war in Bosnia is such a case nowhere. Today is the need for American leadership. More stark are more immediate than in. In Bosnia in the years since the Mexica Europe inaction was heavily criticised, and the US was held up for its global leadership in particular for its unilateral humanitarian intervention. This is when the US secretary. Of State. Madeleine Albright said America was the indispensable nation, and that idea would fade into the justification of the Iraq invasion in two thousand and three as a war of liberation, but he's a question with the US intervene. If the shrivel Nitsa massacre happened today from the standpoint of twenty twenty, we might ask if the era of US unilateral humanitarian intervention is well and truly over.

Trump campaign blames protesters and media for disappointing turnout

North Korea Is About To Blow Up Trump's Supposed Top Foreign Policy Win
"David one of the things that's unique to trump ism is his approach on foreign policy and that he's been fine with breaking some China because it's necessary on this impossible challenge with North Korea he take a meeting with Kim Jong un virtually no other president would consider doing it certainly none of the bass he's now at this point we're his centerpiece foreign policy issue is going to be tested in the coming days what do you know about what North Korea is planning we don't know a whole lot about what the Clinton we know a lot about what they've made and we know a lot about what it is that they're saying what they've made the is probably eight to ten and new nuclear weapons release the fuel for those nuclear weapons in the eighteen months since the president had the signature trip and by the way the signature trip this United discussed before was a pretty brilliant idea to have the summit between these two leaders said the never happened before since the end of the Korean War the problem is the president didn't prepare and he didn't really have a plan for what he would do if Kim basically use this to play for time and that which is exactly which is what has happened and now we know that US officials and they tell me I know they tell you they're taking the side of ending the diplomacy seriously they're hoping Kim Jong once you're on deadline isn't real no what's surprising to me is that there really isn't a planned day I was talking to White House officials intelligence officials for because we have been in the times today and previous presidents George Bush certainly president Obama had considered plans to take out a ICBM on the pad president Obama executed a cyber operation against north Korea's missiles before they launched it was only partially successful at best but I don't see a whole lot of interest in the trump administration in doing anything other than waiting for this to happen and then going to the United Nations will that's back to the same approach that the president used to complain was the failed policy of Obama bush and and

"president george w bush" Discussed on Why Am I Telling You This?
"So President Clinton and President Bush. I'd love to hear from you. Both you've now got me almost three hundred scholars over the past five years. What have you taken for meeting them. What what have you learned from them versus what they learned from you. Do you have any particular memories of any of them. I have learned a a hunger people have to make a difference not by getting another title or Mike and another buck but by making in somebody else's life better lifting somebody who's broken helping somebody to do something that makes things work better and you know. I'm not young anymore but I'm not and the longer live the more that's how I measure drew my life. People better off when you when you started children have a brighter future things coming together instead of being torn apart. That's what I saw on the laws a like a doctor coy that Cambodian refugee who is a member of this class and I think now is in Louisiana working. She really inspired fired me. We had a class member who was a member of the small merry SEC in Touchy Stan and Family Family was in danger of losing their lives in America's save people's lives by Lenin come here and we had a scholar who was determined proof that we've made the right decision my given back to this country and my personal favorite all time was when we were in little rock for graduation ceremony yeah mony a guy who had lost both legs and military service name. Karcher remember came through here took a picture with me and he said he said I wanNA thank you and President Bush for getting together with people we didn't know existed and I said well. What do you mean. He said you see her and he pointed to this very formidable. Physically imposing woman Kendra winners who was she's almost six feet tall and she was looked like she could Mitch press me on a Cold Day and she was an African American Lesbian Dan Liberal Democrat head of the Human Rights Campaign and Arkansas everything the opposite of the sky and he said you know I'm dedicated to helping and veterans people like me not be disempowered to do things he says I have learned so much from her and I hope you've learned something from me and if it hadn't been for you and President Bush we'd never met each other. We wouldn't even know people like each other existence. She looked at me warily. I looked at her warily. He's too you know so I'd be glad to fight for now and that to me is the enduring thing the details. Even the specifics of the products are not as important for all of you who have more tomorrow than yesterday's to have your mind in your heart in the right place. You're smart. You know more about whatever it is. You're doing we do but you. You'll make good decisions. If you believe that we should go forward together as lash yeah so there's some people discouraged about that's a future of the country and I've strongly suggest they get to meet people in payless classes and all of a sudden what may seem to be a dem future will be a bright future and that's what I've learned that the country is full of decent caring compassionate citizens willing to serve the Lisa. I'm Jay talk a little bit about where your organizations are now in some of the work that you're doing because of being in P. L. S. and how it impacted your work so so for me I came into the program at a time where I was losing faith in some aspects of this country and seeing pain and suffering and not seeing it actually in in some places get better with something that was heart and what I saw on the program is sixty sources of hope source of hope that could change a nation and with little acts of leadership and large exit courage can make a difference and so as a result one of the areas I worked on was training thirty community any health workers across Africa to reach nearly one hundred thousand people and part of that work help was built on the notion that we've got to meet people where we're at so esther whose daughter couldn't get malaria treatment became a community health worker to serve those in her community to change the trajectory of the courses someone with HIV or chronic disease but at home at abroad and at home those issues are are seen as well and so we were able to partner with us in the National Urban League to create strategic alliances unlikely partners partners that I wouldn't have dreamt necessarily that we could partner with but we were able to because of this notion that I learned in the program of that it's important important not only to dance at the discomfort and comfort but at times the push into that area of discomfort and to enable others to be in that space so that together the other you can challenge status quo and as a result the most lasting one of the most lasting issues. I've worked on is this disconnect between non on clinical leaders and clinical leaders because we're trained differently and so even though we're going for the same thing we want better. Communities want healthier communities. He's it requires the kind of conversation that's heart and so led a leadership development program that that has trained eight hundred teams that has led to impacting a network of sixteen hundred hospitals in thirty four states are hospital improvement ovation network that has saved nearly a billion dollars avoid one hundred and thirty thousand patient safety incidents and save thirteen thousand lives so that is the impact that this program has had and we're grateful for it and the other thing my side. Peel was creating a opportunity for the collective energy of the class of two thousand sixteen to help the Chicago cubs won the World Series Lisa. Tell us about where you're where you are now what you took from the program and how you have put it into action so in the summer before. I applied to this program. I had this moment with my children and we're going through baby books. We have them all out on the air laughing Chevy and Q. But my daughter Heidi who's my youngest. She's not laughing. She's feisty but she actually get so mad. She puts her hands on her hips and she says where are my pictures with my Daddy. I don't have any words for her and the reality is that are gold star. Youth are walking very uncommon path children whose parents volunteered to serve well aware of the risks that it carried their parents services really become their sacrifice soon the year leading up to the presidential potential leadership scholars program out of those simple Saturday runs with where blue wrench remember we created a youth mentorship program hearing children followed military with currently serving members armed forces in a run focus mentorship to build resilience healthy coping mechanisms and for kids like Heidi which are so often the story I sense of identity. We launched joint base. Lewis mcchord our flagship community and I was overwhelmed by his really incredible kids kids who have sacrificed everything are smart. They're kind the resilient fast that they have so much potential but we needed to create a foundation nation so we launched a very successful program. JVM There's over ten thousand youth in America lost apparent military service. We recognize a larger need beyond around joint base. Lewis mcchord so under the tutelage the the mentorship and honestly just this rom belief in one another the presidential leadership scholars program gave me the structure and the foundation to scale the program through the support of my mentors. I mean we've had countless calls. Talking about. Strategy is Isabelle gave me a platform to tell the story across the country. Chris talked me through fundraising and the number of times my fellow leadership scholars have said you can do this. Let's talk through this. This gave me the bones to take a program. That's across the country so now at Fort Bragg North Carolina in San Antonio Texas almost ten percent of our children who've lost apparent military service live in Texas and we're growing going forward but these kids are amazing and they deserve a nation new stands with them not taking pity but taking verifone and this growth and this gift to these kids is because of the Presidential Leadership Scholars Program President Bush. Can I ask you to say a little more about your deep care of this issue to a veterans. It's something you feel passionately about a yeah so the question is back to what I was talking about about a sense of despondency bonuses think about the fact that a nation who's had millions volunteer and have learned the characteristics.
"president george w bush" Discussed on Why Am I Telling You This?
"Things going on in that were priorities or or when they walk outside the door the wind would hit him so hard in their face that they had to go right back in and so when I went to college I went over to a barbershop my haircut and I met a Guy James Susan cubs hat so I started talking to him because I'm a cubs fan and and then learning about him and what the bar talking about that it was so difficult for them to access care they couldn't meet the challenges of HIV or cancer or chronic disease. I left that day now with a great haircut but incredible conversation and so I kept going back and over time we ended up working together with a team that put a clinic in the back into that barbershop shop and said if you want to get your haircut for free then you'll be seen by the doctor over the course of five years the rates of chronic disease started declining they start helping each other in the community they started helping each other get jobs his canonic development and mobility important and so that told me two things one. I wanted to doctor and underserved communities vehicle for social change and so I'm a primary care doctor geriatrician. I wanted to partner with communities to change future because I saw it happened and so I think we have incredible opportunities leaders in this program to do that and currently I'm the Senior Vice President Chief Medical Officer for the American Hospital Association. We represent nearly five thousand hospitals two million nurses two hundred and eighty five thousand clinicians all working together to drive towards a society the of healthy communities. We're all individuals have their highest potential for health. Thank you okay Jay. We're going to get a little bit more about you in a minute but I want Lisa to tell us about herself and her story break because she's got a pretty compelling story for the work that she does. Thanks I am a proud army spouse and my husband John and I traveled the world being part of the military family and John Deployed to southern Afghanistan in August of two thousand nine and like we do in the military three weeks after John deployed employed our youngest daughter Heidi was born three weeks later with a three year old a one year old and this little bitty baby who my husband hadn't unmet I was notified that John had been killed on his way home from goodwill mission terrified overwhelmed and heartbroken but I wasn't alone for Unit Year. We lost forty-one servicemembers and we're all looking for a way to to heal to grieve to remember these men and women who were our military family and we end to run together we met in the Burger King parking the first time and we ran around the airfield and but we evolved weekly runs became how he spoke the names of our phone service members how he supported each other and how we moved forward when the unit came home we realized that they needed the very same things that we needed and that really words weren't big enough to capture capture everything we felt and wanted to say but with running. We didn't need to have right words and that's how we're blue wrench. Remember was born where blue is running community around the world the honors service and sacrifice in the American military. Thank you for the work that you do the J. WanNa go back to you. One of the things that you have talked about when we talked about vigorous disagreement and debate one of the things that you talked about that happened within your class was you had some tough conversations with your class say more about that. Thank you it was a moment which crystallizes why this program so important module to college station and one night when the aggie wrangler were dancing as a performance we really appreciate it and watch that performance in aw and then there's a question answer session right after and the young buck who's the captain there started answering these questions and we were just totally enthralled with the conversation then Brayton the middle one of our classmates scholar. Catherine says I got a question. Are you up for for a challenge a dance off so then the young book looks at Fred McClure at the time looks back at US looks back at Fred says I don't think we can pauses turned down a challenge and so what ensued happening was proud. Techs tradition of dance combined combined with a dance from the northern part of India from the other side of the world where me and Scott who had my class who whose wife had served in New Delhi he learned dancing hunger arth Indian folk did so we ended up coming out of stage and together started dancing with the aggie wrangler and literally five minutes later the seat started emptying and others others in our class started coming up dancing and then it was the whole stage of our classmates together in one dancing to a common vision of being together being vulnerable with being open and we even got the aggie wrangler sound in there too and dad. Dan opened up this opportunity for us to compensate because the next day we didn't exercise in which well intentioned we construct systems sometimes that have good intention that may leave people out and so we had three teams and two of the teams. James wanted to in an honest and transparent way create a partnership but in doing that left a third team out and so in the debrief we recognize CNN is this and that awareness of what had happened led to important conversation and it helped us realize it systems it can be constructed unintentionally to leave people out in as leaders. It's important for us to recognize that be aware of it and rewrite and redesigned the rule so that we don't leave people out and if we can't then at least recognize what's happening and so that led to a combination at the end of the program in which nearly the whole class sat on a hotel lobby be room floor eating pizza and being vulnerable as you can be about the struggles they had from being stopped by police is a black man or struggling with their identity or having challenges with even their issues that they were struggling with at home and so that really created a sense of common purpose so when I think about leadership leadership it's expect accepting responsibility for share purpose in the face of uncertainty and I think we did that really inspired by the legacies of President Bush President Clinton Lyndon B Johnson and President George H W Bush so we're grateful for that the film you dancing with the Wrangler as Lisa one of the one of the things we hear so often from the scholars in the program is the sense of inspiration that this program brings to you. Does that ring true for you. Absolutely I think so often leadership it can be very lonely and I think quite often we operate in silos leaders but I remember walking in to the second module. We're at your dance at Your Dad's library in college station and I read that last letter that he wrote his. He's leaving office to you and he says your success. Now is is our country's success. I'm rooting hard for you and it was such a message if not just for President Clinton but for all of us and being a part of the the Presidential Leadership Scholars Program changed how I view myself as an American and really what my role is and achieving that success and I had thought honestly being a military spouse who sacrificed my husband that was it. I drop the MIC. I've served my country but I realize through this program looking at all of the work passionately effort the dreams of the leaders in this program the John Sacrifice is worth a country realized based in America is worth each of US stepping up to the plate entering their arena and owning our piece of the fight so that we can build the communities in the future that our country deserves.

Muslims are doctors lawyers members of the military entrepeneurship nineteen. I am part of the Presidential Leadership Scholar Program and grateful for the opportunity to serve and lead in a country built on diversity and freedom freedom. Hello my name is delivers Hanukkah and welcome to a special episode of Why am I telling you this the Clinton Foundation podcast. I'm I'm speaking to you today. As a recent graduate of the Presidential Leadership Scholars Program a first of its kind joint initiative between the presidential centers of Presidents Clinton George W Bush George H W Bush and Lyndon B Johnson that's two Republicans and two Democrats for the past five years appeal US program has brought together allied range of leaders from across the nonprofit military public and private sectors and from all corners of this country who share a commitment to solving the greatest challenges of the the twenty first century across America and around the world long before I joined the peel off program I came to the United States as a child from the Palmyre mountains in the newly newly-formed nation of Tajikistan when I was born these mountains were part of the Soviet Union and the Cold War was raging when the USSR fell a few years later the civil war that followed led to millions being displaced or killed two GCA stan the poorest of the former Soviet states teeters on a knife-edge more people have died in the touchy conflict then in all of the other conflicts on the territory reformers combined. Luckily my parents brother and I received a way out we won the Green Card Lottery to immigrate to the United States in the fall of nineteen ninety five when we arrived my family and I were braced with open arms in our new country however in recent years I I like many Americans have felt discouraged by increasingly hostile political discourse the first time I began to question whether the definition of a real American was shrinking in ways that did not include people like me a young Muslim immigrant woman so why am I telling you this because the is program is proof that in this country we are more like than we are different sure we come from different backgrounds identify with different political parties and worship live and love differently differently but as Americans we all share common goal we strive to make our country in the world a better place the PO program reaffirms that America is for everyone on and that both the strength and success of our nation comes from our diversity. The challenge America in Pilaf gives each one of us is to see diversity as a strength and work together as Americans to catalyze change this special episode of. Why am I telling you this features a conversation with President Clinton President George W Bush and two of my fellow presidential leadership scholars from the graduation and fifth anniversary celebration earlier this summer you'll get a chance to hear for yourself what makes the Peel US program so unique and I hope you'll leave with the same sense of optimism and inspiration that the program gave to me welcome everybody to the Twenty Nineteen Graduation Presidential Leadership Scholars Program this year we celebrate the fifth anniversary of this program and over the past six months scholars have heard from leaders shared their own experiences. They've honed their own leadership skills. They've worked on their personal leadership projects and they've they've become a strong network together but who knew what this program would become after five years we had hoped to build a transformational leadership program but what we had envisioned was this sense of family that these scholars have with each other so. I WANNA start with President Bush and President Clinton about so this program and five years ago when we launched it and what we thought it would be then and where it's come now and so President President Bush at the time we launch this you talked about how you wanted people in this program from all walks of life different political persuasions people who work hard and work with fathers. Why was that important to you then as a piece of this program before we'd never met any of these people who we've just seen today a in five years ago today. There's a so I give Michelle Obama piece of candy and the whole world says well. We need more of that. I was stunned you know Clinton and I go to the President's cup and they take a picture rubbish and my buddies back here went man good. You all can get along. I said Yeah we're southern governors great. Bs this artists anyway and so there's a need for bipartisanship which is kind of an overused word but there is a need Ford and this is a program that has absolutely not political and yet it achieves a common objective which which seems to me to be a spirit ought to be taking place more around the country and so it's awesome really good and it's really good because of the people who join the program President Clinton when you said five years ago you talked about how you hoped that people had vigorous debate and disagreement in this program that they ultimately found ways to come to a resolution so say a little bit more about that in terms of your vision first of all I am. I've been I've been concerned for a long time for leafs twenty-five about how keep drifting apart and we all say okay. We want people to work together but Lebron politics. We often don't vote for what we say. We want our once. We get what we say we want. We don't do what's necessary to bring it to reality so I got to thinking about this and I formed an unusual friendship with President Bush when he was president and really come to not only like him but to respect him and to believe she she says something. He's on the level. You can really have a fight with anybody as long as they're on the level just too much in life is not on the level now so what I had in mind we started. This was too little lessons. I've learned in life. One is no matter how much difference you have with somebody else. If you can agree agree on an objective you both want to achieve then you can have your arguments on the way to a destination but if it's enough for you just to keep showing how sure are you. Are you never have to produce anything then. It's hard for people to get anything dot so we tried to get goal oriented people in this program and I I also believe in an interdependent world twat disagree with so much what's happening today. I think diversity is God San. I think it's one of America's great blessings. I think that diverse groups make better decisions than homogeneous ones and the closest we've come to passing for example. Immigration Reform Bill I believe was when he he was president and strongly supported and most Democrats on new didn't not because they weren't immigration reform because they found something they didn't like about it and so I thought well. This is not like crafting bill. You know you just show up in your work on your project talk to other people about and the final thing. Is this become people to each other if you're just a two-dimensional cartoon it's a lot easy to dismiss you than it is. If you're a three dimensional person and I thought if we got really early extraordinarily people together that you might become people each other and do even more extraordinary things. I got one other point. I forgot little unfair to other panelists. I know but that was the president anyway so the real challenge launch for these presidential libraries is to be contributors and I can't think of a better way to invigorate our library a Bills Library Dad's library and Linden Johnson's library then they have a program that utilizes our respective resources to train people to be leaders in the future great Jay and Lisa. I WANNA BRING YOU IN J. Tell us first. You're in healthcare. Tell us how you ended up there. What drives you and what you're doing now. Thank you how good everyone my name's Jay bought and I'm the son of a FA- a pharmacist who worked outside of Chicago for most of his life and a mom who's a factory worker her and I spent a lot of time growing up with my dad going to people's homes on the south side who couldn't make it to clinic because bus fare or had other.
Fed Considers Rate Cut as Political Pressure Mounts
"Now, our main story this morning, just how President Trump's repeated hectoring of the Federal Reserve has complicated interest rate decisions. Here's what the president had to say to CNBC yesterday in response to a question about whether he thought the fed had listened to him. Listen to me, and get a we have people, it's more than just Jay Powell. We have people on the fed really weren't, you know, they're not might people. So how has this changed the environment in which the fed must determine whether economic conditions warrant a rate cut are fed reporter, Nick Tim Roche has been speaking to Charlie Turner from Washington. Well, let's be up front about this Nick has any fed chief ever faced such pressure before, from a president actually, yes, you could probably say that this is something fed cheers in the postwar period, have faced, what's different about President Trump? Is that his criticism has been much more public of the fed? So just to. Go back in time in the nineteen sixties, the fed chairman by the name of William mcchesney Morgan was very unpopular with president Johnson recall Johnson was trying to boost domestic spending while fighting the Vietnam war, and he did not like the fact that the fed was raising borrowing costs to limit inflation. And so he was very critical privately of Martin. There's a story about how he pushed him up against the wall said my boys are dying in Vietnam. And you won't give me the money I need. So there is a history of presidents putting pressure usually in private on the fed chair. What's different about this president is that he does it pretty often in public via Twitter via interviews or off the cuff statements to reporters on his way to Marine One helicopter. And so it creates a perception problem for the fed because the fed doesn't want to be seen by the markets is responding to anything but the economic and financial. Data that they analyze that could change the way investors. Think about inflation, and bond yields, and so forth. You described three challenges fed chair pal is navigating at this point. What are they so the fed has to set the right interest rate of the right time? The fed has to explain clearly, what they're doing and why they're doing it, and those are two challenges that every fed leader faces, but the third one is unique as we've talked about. And that is he has to deal with this public pressure, campaign, very loud, criticism from the president something that we haven't seen since the early nineteen nineties President George Bush senior was the last president who even said publicly what he thought the fed should be doing President Clinton and his two successors Bush, and Obama maintained this rule where they were not going to comment on the fed, and Clinton's advisers convinced him. This was a good policy for them because they had seen how President Bush. This is a first President Bush had called on Greenspan to lower rates. And Greenspan didn't go along with it. And so Clinton's advisers told him, look, you really don't have anything to gain by pressuring the fed. They're going to do what they think they need to do. And you putting pressure on them isn't gonna make their life any easier. They may feel like they have to do the opposite to to, you know, to look independent so Clinton and then Bush forty three and Obama never said anything about the fed, and that was a tradition that continued up until about a year and a half into Donald Trump's presidency doesn't fed chairman pal. Face pressure to cut rates for the rest of the year, including at the June meeting. So the Fed's next meeting is in less than two weeks on June.
Explainer 167: Why has Trump ramped up his war on the environment?
"As a people, we want and need economic growth. But now we must also expect environmental responsibility and respect the natural world. It was a Republican President, George Bush, senior, and not democrat to help stay through one of the most ambitious pieces of climate change legislation today, eight amending the Clean Air Act in nineteen ninety two limit air pollution, and tackle, everything from urban smoke to acid rain while his son fad less. Well, refusing to ratify the key Oto protocol in two thousand and one and helping tank brand America around the world. George Hw mate, an important point, protecting the environment and advancing big business didn't need to be mutually exclusive when one does, if the current Oakmont of the White House, don't. Out, J Trump has ever listened to that speech. We've seen enough of this stalemate. It's time to clear the air. You know, I think we will indeed since moving into Pennsylvania Avenue in January of two thousand seventeen Trump's administration has mounted a concerted effort to refu- climate change science and loosen regulations in favor of the fossil fuel industry. So how did the forty fifth president of the US become such a champion and chief of the environmental skeptics? And they say as and why as ever with Trump. The answer is complicated and contradictory Trump's musings, own the environment, actually predate his ascendancy to the presidency taking his favorite communications medium Twitter. He regularly lamb bastard. His predecessor Barrack Obama for wasting federal money tackling global climate change and as recently as two thousand fifteen he cooled the whole thing a hoax. All of this with the global warming and that a lot of it's a hoax. It's a hoax. I mean it's a money making industry. Okay. But then, just as we're starting to think with seeing patent Donald Trump before his many about tons of trying to throw us off the scent in two thousand nine for example, he signed an open letter that challenge diploma to come up with a more meaningful climate change policy will recently, his stowed, the importance of clean-air, and who can forget, those clean co comments while allowing measures that will undermine it often his framed, his stones as a business competitively issue right now. We're at the cleanest, we've ever been. That's very important to me. But if went clean, but every other place on earth is dirty. That's not so good. Of course, actions, speak louder than woods and ever since the now shamed and departed fossil fuel politics. Scott Pruitt was installed to lead the Environmental Protection Agency. We knew something was a mess, and no action speaks, louder than the decision to put after the Paris climate agreement. A huge blow even if many of the US's largest companies have found to continue following its rulebook. More recently, the assault on climate change has talked people working in government agencies pressuring staff to avoid using the words climate change in speeches. They have also been moved meant how scientific studies carried out by doing away with worst case scenario projections, and several members of Trump's inner circle are pushing to create a climate change panel. That will challenge environmental assessments, according to a recent New York Times report, the chasm between George H W Bush, and Trump may simply be a reflection of radically different times, the age of political decorum, and bipartisanship Bush, happily mentioned the Democrats in the room in that speech along gone. Meaning a compromise on the environment is unlikely. And then there are the people that Trump has chosen to surround himself with many of them, committed climate change deniers, just listen to this Arctic Council speech by secretary of state, Mike Pompeo earlier this month. Arctic is at the forefront of opportunity and abundance, it houses thirteen percent of the world's undiscovered oil thirty percent of its undiscovered gas and an abundance of uranium rare earth minerals gold diamonds, and millions of square miles of untapped. Resources fisheries glory, dark, money donors, so competent, knee, described by New Yorker journalist, and Monaco, big interview, e Jane man, also doubtlessly have a part to play thanks to the Mercer's and the cokes, deep pockets among others, what was once fringe thinking is now part at the Republican mainstream and that includes the environment. We know that Trump and embrace of science quackery conspiracy theories doesn't have the best grasp of the facts, and whether it's someone who has the presidential ear distorted vision that the US will lose out to China, if it abandoned fossil fuels, despite the as in power moved to dominate the clean energy market, all simply watching too much FOX and friends, the whole climate crisis as they call. It is not only fake news. It's fake science. Remain be sure. But that also doesn't mean that we should doubt for one moment. The convictions of this administration. My administration is putting an end to the war on call for Monaco in New York. I'm as Docker.

"You. Most Africans, say thanks. That's a an incredible compliment from the US tax payer. It really is. It really is. It's a. In the fundamental question is do the American people? See that. It's international interest to save a continent from a pandemic oftentimes, feel say, well, we've got our own problems, and my answer's yes, we certainly do, but nothing compared to a pandemic and its destructive effects on a continent. And so in here at the Bush center, we learned that a woman with the as virus was likely to get cervical cancer. Cervical cancer was a leading is a leading cause of death of women and the on the African continent decided you something about it. We want we continued the spirit of pet for last week was the warrior open, which is a great. It's a great way to honor veterans as a great celebration this at this year's warrior open. Did you see anything different between this year? Any of the previous years we've done, this is our eighth year to do it. You know, it struck me that we had to double amputees play. And that Audi air no showed with only one arm. And yet, I was and has such a great spirit. The idea of having a spousal of was a smart idea. And which we had done in the past, but the wives were very appreciative of the fact that the Bush center cares about them as much as they cared about the golfers. Well during the program Ryan Palmer got a hole in one on the same hall. You gotta, you know I it was nice. They need to make the whole harder. Do you think? No, I think he's plenty hard. Yeah. He dunked the ball actually did not bounce on the green, but, like basketball shot. It went straight into the into the hole, and it was a dunk. It was good. I'm glad he did it because he and I were talking about my whole in one prior to him teeing off. He's just to show off that he had he was trying to show you Amarillo boy and very nice of the pros to be there. We're very thankful that people took time to come. And, and you know, hang out with the vets and one thing is no that they're impressed. So one of the things I don't know if you know this story, but during the pro-am David Dorothy, one of the warriors who played this year was getting ready to t- off his group and Jason pock, who was a member of our, I stand to veteran leadership program works at Boeing was playing in the same group. And as they were coming up to the thi box. They David was kind of looking at him like I know this guy I know him and then he Jason turned around. And they made the connection that they had been together during the war, and that the last time they'd seen each other with wind Jason was being airlifted out. And so they had this really incredible moment where they were seeing each other for the first time, which was pretty divine intervention. Yeah. But there are a lot of tears and a lot of emotion. And that's the kind of thing I think about the were open in the w and hundred you think stories like that happen, once in a while, but it feels like they happen every year and the thing that's really important. Is that? The participants past and present in are golf, and biking, experience form a peer to peer counselling network where they cancel each other. So we can sit and be very empathetic. And it's almost like he will worship in a way you know, to some vet has been to him believable, seven we're kind of wow, you mean. You're unbelievable. But then help deal with some of the invisible wounds awar-, what helps is for a fellow vet to say, look, I know what you're going through man. And here's a way I dealt with it, and you ought to try it. And so the these networks. Not only help each other that are that have participated, but they reach out to other vents as well. And so we're a part of we do a lot of things for vets here, but we're a part of a larger group of peer to peer counseling networks around the country cavalry, wellness alliances is doing is one of the many things or military service, initiatives, Daffy working. It's good work. Yeah, it really is important. And so we have parlayed our strength, which is the capacity to assemble smart, people incapable capable people to rally, a group of disparate organizations, toward a common cause I have one more question about programming, which is in about a month. President Clinton will be here for the graduation of our presidential leaders dollars program are, are what is this? Our fifth class five years. And I know you've gotten to meet them, they're actually going to be here this week tomorrow night. That's right. And so I wondered about what you think about that program. I think first of all. A lot of people say to me, can't we figure out at work across the political divide? And I said, well, look at what we're doing at the Bush center, we've got a leadership program that Bill Clinton and I are very much involved in as LBJ and, and Bush, forty one that'd be my dad and. It is a way for us to bring a group of people that are talented and optimistic and want to continue to learn bring them together, regardless of political party race at you, you know, whatever and help them learn the skills necessary to become better leaders. And so this is a this is an genius program that will stand the test of time, and we'll have a very positive contribution to our country and Dame printing crediple, thanks. Yeah. I'm looking forward to seeing Bill as I mentioned. At my dad's funeral that he we call him a brother with a different mother. One of the things that we love to do here on on our podcast. And for the record that we believe this is probably the first podcast you've been on. We're gonna do some fact checking and make sure on that, but pretty confident it is, well, we're gonna we're gonna make sure we'll make sure do some fact checking at seventy to my mind is beginning to slip a little bit. I don't believe that for a second, but at age seventy two, you've probably been asked just about every question under the songs you've done countless interviews. What is a question that no one asked you that you wish they would? Why do you use only reds blues and yellows and white in your paint mix? Why do you. So I can learn to mix colors. So we've had to behind the scenes with artists today. We've had the learning about the juxtaposition of joy fear, and the painting with the African ladies and now about your use of colors. Yeah. And so one of my I'm one is never too old to take instruction. I still have as a matter of fact this afternoon. I'll be painting with an instruct one of my two instructors Jim Woodson, he came into my students. What do you wanna learn? I said color. He said, we'll get rid of all the paint. You bought. I had bought every color. There was look looking a painting cataloging. Oh, that looks like a nice color. And so I only use Salo blue CAD yell alike head yellow, medium CAD. Red light Elizabeth, and a white, and I've learned to mix every, every color possible, and it's changed my painting and it changed my appreciation of the use of color in my paintings there, it is less than from the artists themselves.

"That somebody's. Making fun of you. Right. Good point. By the way. I did watch him make fun of my dad, and, you know, his way handle, it was very instructive to me one. He just accepted as part of the job as a son. I didn't particularly accept it. The, the, the humor on my dad if it was particularly as binding. But which made it easier for me when I became president to accept humor is part of the job. The other thing though is he befriended. Dana, carvey. And as a matter of fact, at the end of his presidency. When he was saying had a farewell party for the White House staff. He surprise everybody with Dana, Carvey as the guest and I thought it was a great example of humility and. Of humor. And so besides see learned a lot from your father, and your mother about humor, and we saw that their humor on display at our recent engage event just was remembering your father who else. Did you learn humor from though, we we've seen we know about them? Well, that's all you needed to know because they had such a huge influence on my life. I mean my mother was very quick. Very funny and was capable of dealing with hypocrisy in a humorous way. My dad was a little more subtle, but he loved a good joke, and he loved to laugh and. And it was pretty famous for grading others jokes. So post-presidency a lot of his buddies around the country, would send in jokes. And he was the judge of the jokes. And, you know, I can't remember the grading scale but, like if you got a four on your joke, as opposed to three. It was considered a wonderful day for the jokester to your member has favorite joke. No. So we were doing our research this interview, and I did a quick Google search. When you search George W Bush and humor. Yeah. There are a lottery salts that come up about four hundred of the search results are you dancing different in different places interesting way to analyze my dancing, but one moment that come up comes up a lot, and I remember it was from Livingstone Zambia Lear. There you were there is Bush was they're renovating a clinic. And I remember, so we were there as part of our cervical cancer screening and treatment program. And I recall the women were so nervous as they filed up to be tested for the first time to see if they had HP or cervical cancer. And then the did they began to sing, and there was some dancing involved, and there's a lot of laughter and a lot of joy, do you, do you remember that do clearly? And here's what struck me was amidst. All the deprivation and poverty. There was a joy and I got caught up in the spirit joyful spirit, and they started singing clapping and a couple of star dancing, and it was really fun. Really fun. And, you know, part of my way of telling them that I was trying to relate to them. But also that I knew they were nervous. They were nervous being around president. They were frankly, a little nervous because finally, somebody had paid attention to what may be a major health issue, and they were uncertain as to whether or not they needed treatment. And so the dancing and the joy was away of, of for me to help them. Enjoy the moment, and they really helped me more than I help them for sure. But it was fun. It really fun. The moment, must've really stuck with you. Because the, the women that you met on that day you painted the painting and the Bush institute now. I did I painted the faces of I think it was eight women. And of five of them where the older woman women who were very joyful, three of the women were the younger women who were very nervous. Oh, interesting. Yeah. There was a great apprehension among some of the young women because, you know, as I say, this seem like the first time that any organization or entity had paid attention to their health. And so these young young girls were, you know they were justifiably nervous. I mean there was a lot of thirty there. I think the first lady is amby came by some point. And, and I don't recall these were the dancers either. I think they were kind of sitting on sitting in their seats, you know, in, in nervously awaiting their turn, and they were healthy. They were healthy. Yeah, it was great. I thought you know, I did a lot of public dancing. I thought you. Google. George W Bush's great dance moves, and that, you know, the critics were say, well, this guy can shake when they were one of do dear daughters ever, send you the me on your phone, when they're when they're texting with you to the one of you dancing. That's just a two second clip of dancing. No. I haven't seen that one yet, but I do know that when I was dancing. I can't remember where it was during the presidency might have been in the rose garden, it might have been in Liberia at, at, at an event. That it made you know. Knows days. Like there were no podcast and the internet was just taking hold and things going viral is a new phenomena. And I think one of my daughter said you went viral and I said, no, I'm healthy. So you were talking about laughter and being optimistic. Yes. And I think if you if all you did these days was watched twenty four hour news, maybe you would feel like a lot of people feel like maybe that the world is ending. But of course, it's not. And we know that don't watch twenty four hour shift point. But what keeps you up domestic? You know that first of all, my understanding of history of this country we have been through some very difficult periods in the past this one for some people seemed like the most difficult. It's not democracy has got institutional safeguards that enabled the ship estate to sail on that elections. Enabled democracies to heal and that the soul of America is good and generous. And so I'm very optimistic anything. Nothing shows that souls much as programs like pep far which starred under deer four was a big deal sad thing is most Americans have no clue of anybody's listening to this podcast. They're probably scratching their head going, what is pet far and the answer is it was your tax payers money, going to save lives on the continent of Africa. There was a pandemic destroying an entire generation of Africa and thanks to the generosity of the American taxpayer may, is now live. We would have died and I, you know, if one were to go to Africa and say, you know, I'm American they'd say, thank you.

"What happens when you cross the forty third president late night, sketch comedy and compelling conversation, this strategic a podcast born from the word strategically, which was coined by the now in braced by the George Bush administration. We highlight the Americans feared of leadership and compassion through thought, provoking conversations and we're reminded that the most effective leaders are the ones who laughed. We've got a pretty special episode today. First off our co host is Hannah Abney who heads up our external affairs department Hannah. Thanks for waking up early this morning. You're welcome. And if you're at the Bush institute, and you have a podcast called the strategic I, you really have to get on the man himself, the forty third president of the United States. President George W Bush Andrew. Thank you Hannah. Good to see you smiling. I'm honored to be on the strategic list. Well, and so the name the strategic is derived from strategically, which is supposedly a famous bushes them. But I think there's a little bit of a story that whether is a story, so. For seventeen years, see for seventeen years. I thought I said the worst strategically. Cage Nally I would get my words mixed up. Call malapropism and then get that one mixed up. No nailed. I'd been researching it. And so Lord took Lorne Michaels ahead of Saturday Night, Live, or the producer creator to dinner. And at one point the dinner, he said we created the words strategically. And as no. You didn't I said it any said, no one of our great speechwriters came up with the word, and we basically stuck it on you, and I said, you gotta be kidding me. Learn it for all these years. I thought I said strategically and you're telling me I didn't he said, that's right? I said, well, let me ask you to come up with misunder estimate. So anyway, that's I'm honored that the mala prop that evidently, I didn't come up with is a part of the Bush center that you've been saddled with all these year have have. Well, we're glad you're on our pack cost. You listen to podcasts. No. Okay. Well, I mean, of course, we're listen to this one. So we wanted a podcast that would allow us to interview some of the really cool people that come through the Bush center, we're really lucky to have some awesomely honor to be insured. Cool. And what we wanted to be authentic. So we think around the Bush center that we take our work more seriously than we take ourselves. And we think that, that might come a little bit from your leadership. Do you think it's important to take your work more important than yourself? Yes. But I think it's very important to take yourself too seriously. Yes. So. I think if anytime you're parliament organization where one attempts to advance their own interests. It undermines the culture of an organization. So, for example, during the presidency. I worked hard to surround myself with people who were there, not to serve me or a political party, but were there to serve the country and so cultures very important. We've got a fabulous culture here at the Bush center because we're all aimed at making this place relevant and important and lasting. And the leadership provide there is on spot that we are so empowered to, to do great things. And we're good we're lucky to be here. Well take, for example, traduced. It's feels like it's a great thing emerging. Well, thank you. We hope so we're, we're having to overcome some shortcomings at the host, but other than that, I think we're moving right along the way. So during our engagement with Lorne Michaels that you're so you went to dinner with him after our engage of it couple years ago. And during that vent, you said that a part of the past of the presidency include humor because our nation needs to laugh. Yeah. So what's it feel like to be the guy that's providing them at aerial part of the his just part of the job? I think it is very important for society and individuals to either collectively or individually laugh because laughter such a part of a light spirit and heaviness on a society or a heaviness, clouds and individuals vision is can be very weighing and it's hard to be optimistic. If you're not able to smile one of the jobs of president is to create an optimistic vision for the country, and I don't say you can be optimistic if you're like worried that

"President George W Bush was criticized for keeping billions in war spinning off the books so that it could be diverted the secret operations free from congressional oversight. And of course, conservatives complain that President Obama spent billions on healthcare without congressional authorization. The end of the day voters want a wall, and the president should deliver it at the end of the day voters want a wall, and the president should deliver it now this shutdown may not be just ending anytime soon. Let's let's play Q one place. How long is this going to go on this is what Washington looks like I saw the intro. Instead it was chaos in Washington. This is what Washington looks like we have a president to refuses to sort of go along to get along. You're saying a fight over border security. Just like we had a fight over taxes. A fight over deregulation a fight over trade a fight over Syria. We'll talk about that in a little bit. So this is what it looks like I met yesterday with the vice president and Mr. Schumer throughout the day as your story indicated there were some Republican members to talk about where we were in the discussions. We hid given an offer a counteroffer to Mr. Schumer late yesterday afternoon. And immediately after the Senate went into recess until at least Thursday. That doesn't mean it will be before Thursday tweet here something back, but I don't think things are going to move very quickly here for the next couple of days. So are we talking a week? Are we talking and the new congress comes in on January third a couple of different things? It's Sunday right now in government shutdown mostly on Sunday anyway government shutdown tomorrow anyway, because it's a federal holiday than Tuesday's Christmas again, another federal holiday so Wednesday is really the first day of this kicks in the paychecks importantly, we'll go out on the twenty eighth I want everybody to understand no one is working without getting paid paychecks. Go out of the twenty eighth next pay period. That has impacted is January eleventh. I think that is it's very possible that the shutdown will go beyond the twentieth and into the new congress. Wow. So there was an interview on Fox News Sunday with incoming acting White House chief of staff, meek Mulvaney, saying it was very possible that the partial government shutdown where Las beyond December twenty eight just a couple of days time any new year Democrats. Will take control of the house of representatives on the third of January? Look voters is a wall. And I think this president wants to deliver it I think he should deliver it, and I think eventually he's going to deliver it opposition to the war within the president's on administration has present have has have goodness Maine has presented have prevented progress on this issue, which is wildly popular with the GOP's. Conservative. Bison is the consequence of the president surrounding himself with establishment advises who have worked to thwart his populist agenda from within. I look I think that the president's policy options will only get narrower off the Democrats take control of the house of representatives in January and the White House becomes consumed potentially by fighting off impeachment charges. Brought forward by the Democrats. There is no chance that the wolf finding will pass through congress in the next two years with divided government and increasing political divisiness in the nation's capital, minus an eleventh hour deal in the Senate, the only Wia border wall will get built is it the president uses executive power to do it. He has the funds available and the authority to build the wall on his own. The only question is whether President Trump will finally start taking advice from those who actually support his goals rather than continuing to trust the internal obstructionists want to go to and from Greenville, South Carolina. How are you? Really? Well, thank you. And how you fine. My hope that you're enjoying working in this area. I not heard of you before you might show up the name of some of your books. But this is what I'm calling about. What your issue was today? I think that if Hugh you and Hugh perhaps sit down and create a letter of the things that you've mentioned just now that might help the president gets his accomplishments myth because I thought the things that she said, we're very viable, but it has to be shared, and I'll have stroke. I can't right? So you have to write it. Our? Promote your thoughts. But I won't be able to write it for the president. You'll have to get together and write was shoot recognized shoe right off. Absolutely. Look, we really we really appreciate you calling in and your support. And we will keep you in our prayers. But you're right. Look there are some solutions. Here we do need to get them in front of the president. We do need to make sure that the right people are in the president's R. And it's critically important that that we get this wall built the president definitely needs to act here. Let's go to Mike from Seattle Washington. Mike, thank you for your patience. I know that you wanted to talk about ice skating, so many new citizens he that we probably need more fingerprinting voting where we need a fingerprint and a photo ID because the whole voting system is it has to be reliable for the people of this country because it's our most sacred, right?

They do not like it because he knows what is euro is on a balance sheet. They're furious because they never seen a war.

The forty first president was eulogized by among others, his son. Former President George W Bush course, dad taught me a no special lesson. He showed me what it means to be a president who served with integrity leaves with courage and with love in his heart for the citizens of our country. When they history books are written. They will say that George H W Bush was a great president of the United States. A diplomat of unmasks killed a commander in chief of formidable accomplishment and a gentleman who executed to do these of his office with dignity and honour Wall Street Journal executive Washington editor Jerry Cy who covered the late president's term in office attended his funeral services on Wednesday. He joins us now to reflect on the life and legacy of former president, George H W Bush, Jerry, thank you so much for joining us. And for those of us who watched the ceremonies at home or at work on Wednesday. I wonder if you can start by just giving us a sense of what it was like to be there at the Washington National cathedral to witness this in person. Well, it was first of all a remarkable crowd that gathered there, you know, you have to remember George H W Bush left office. Quarter century ago twenty more than a quarter century ago in yet you had representatives from all across the world and all across American life there, which I think spoke of the kind of place that he holes in the American memory now, he's he's appreciated more. Now, I think it's fair to say, then he was when he left office, and that's true around the world you had Brian Mulroney. The former prime minister of Canada was eulogised because they became great friends. You had the Prince Charles of the United Kingdom there. You had the king of Jordan. You had the current German prime minister, and you had a whole assemblage of Americans of of significance in substance over the last thirty or forty years all gathered there, so I guess the first thing that struck me was there's only one man who could have brought this crowd together. And that's probably George H W Bush. The second thing that struck me was, you know, George Bush forty first president came to the Oval Office with maybe the best resume anybody's every carried into the Oval Office. He was vice president he was head of the CIA. Use UN ambassador. He was on voided China. He was a member of congress. He had run the Republican party. He was a successful businessman, and he had by most accounts an extraordinarily successful presidency. Lease on the foreign policy front. He oversaw the end of the Cold War, the unification of Germany and a successful Persian Gulf war, yet almost all the conversation. And almost all the eulogizing was about the kind of guy. He was in this word that former President George W Bush used in the clip we heard at the outset here decency. You kept hearing it over and over again his decency at his civility. And I thought it was striking that at a time. When people think a lot of that has been lost in the political debate. That's the thing that people kept coming back to when talking about George H W Bush and for you having covered his presidency. Were there any other particular moments during the ceremonies that resonated with you? I think it was it was that that he was an easy person to cover. For in the sense that he was approachable and really was kind of an open book, which you saw is what you got. Also, what struck me was the loyalty of the people who worked for him. I mean, all kinds of people that I hadn't seen in years and years made it back for this occasion. Which says something about the the way they felt about him. You know, there were a lot of jokes about things we used to joke about because, you know, reporters who I was White House reporter that. And there are pretty cynical lot. Usually we talked a lot about how he wasn't exactly silver-tongued. He was not the world's greatest public speaker. He would Bank lists words and use malapropisms frequently and we all joked about that and made fun of him for that..

So they can take the time to pay their respects to the late president, George H W Bush former US Senator from New York Al D'Amato joining us now is he does each week in our Bloomberg eleven three oh studios in New York. And Senator while I absolutely want to get your thoughts about the former president the late President Bush in just a moment. Let's launch into what these lawmakers are. Doing taking the step to keep the government functioning just an extra couple of weeks. But it expires on December twenty first that seems like they risk a shutdown before Christmas. Give me your insight high with hope that the testimonials given to former President George Bush, what sheriff kind of as an inspiration and get both sides to put the Animesh that exist today in the political rhetoric, which is so horrific put it aside and try to emulate the kind of things that he is known for bringing people together, we should not be closing down the government. It would be a tragedy. And I would hope that the president would she's a wisdom of acting more Bush like more compromising. Yes, she wanna chic certain. Things but building the wall. Is not the end all and Beal getting some of reform or the promise of reform on immigration is important. But nothing show important that you would shut down the government create all kinds of chaos, and then the finger pointing continues, and it gets worse. The animist to political atmosphere gets worse. So use this as an opportunity you try to come together. There's nothing worthwhile in bringing about a shutdown of government it wrong.

And I wanna tell you there's something he's not giving too much recognition. And that was his victory in Panama knocking out Manuel Noriega again going in with a superior force hitting them hard getting rid of a brutal dictator who is creating tremendous disruption in that area. He didn't let them get away with it. And he did that early on in his administration show hats off to a man who knew how to wage war when to do it was not a bully. And so when he said something sent out a message people got it. What I see today is that too much bombastic rhetoric, and when you should follow through. There is no follow-through talk with China. And yet they're pouring in Fenton. Al killing our kids, creating helping to exacerbate this is opiate. Epidemic. Mr President wake up. That's what you wanna to say you stop it now because the government of China controls that so they're pouring poison into our country. That that's when you get tough and let it be known. You do it behind the scenes, but you tell them we're not gonna tolerate this. And then I hear about this blockade of that the Iranians are are threatening. They should be called once and for all you tried it closed at peninsula cut off oil to the world, and they will be Chevere consequences, but get on go out in a bombastic way, you'd let it be known behind the scenes, and you make sure your secretary of defense gives them that message because world leaders know that if matters says we're gonna come in you better stop this nonsense.

But politics, aside, you were talking about how the late President George Bush was able to wage war and a quote proper way. Although everyone is describing him as a gentle soul who practice civility and. How those two philosophies can actually live in the same person you've just analyzed it. They can.
