"That 2.7 number I saw, I was shocking, when I came across my desk. But they're all going to be 7 $1 million he made out in Hawaii with the whales and they're fucking around under the stars, Mike essie, crazy at that. 2.7 is a lot, but I wonder if you told me to conceivable. It's inconceivable. I wonder if you told John rom that, yes, you won $2.7 million, but Todd Lewis has to shake your belt after. I don't know if he takes that deal. I saw this happen, post round last night. Came across your desk last night. This came across my desk last night. I'm watching the golf, Todd Lewis comes in with the most aggressive handshake of all time. From a distance, dude. Like, I've really never seen someone cock it up like that. I know Trent did with president George W. Bush. I also did it with Rory at times. With Rory, but dude. This was like a three step walk with this handout. And he's walking slowly walking slowly. Brahm looks at the hand for a good second. That's coming in. And watches the video, I put up a bunch of stills because you can't because the fucking golf channel will just ruin my Twitter if I put up a video, but he looks down as Todd Lewis is then he had to resort to legitimately shaking his belt. He puts his hand on his underbelly and just shakes his belt like he puts his hand on one of the loops and just kind of moves it up and down for a second. It was a wild scene. Something I've never seen before in sports history. Do the Spanish not shake hands like that. I don't understand why if he looked at it, why wouldn't he go more of a double kiss situation? He should have given he should have went cheek to cheek. But yeah, I felt for my boy Todd Lewis there because my God. That is just on TV to have that happen forever and for me to have to tweet that out. That's just never going away. So it's a mess. It's a swing and a mess. Yeah, I don't know that he was really that to blame. Maybe he presented the challenge a little too early. But yeah, I feel bad for him too because it seemed like John rom was just not familiar with like a hand being presented to you to shake it. Yeah. It is super embarrassing for Todd Lewis, but it's why didn't John rom accept. There's nothing worse than having that hand out there for you. That doesn't mean you're an expert. Snap that son of a gun.

"National, emergency. President George W. Bush had troops in Afghanistan and Iraq when Congress passed the higher education relief opportunities for students act of 2003. The bill also known as the heroes act of 2003 gives the secretary of education authority to change student financial assistance programs during a war, military operation, or national emergency. 19 years later, the Biden administration cited that law this month and announcing a plan to forgive up to $10,000 of student loan debt, and $20,000 of education debt for pell grant recipients for those earning less than $125,000. The national emergency excited was the COVID-19 pandemic and economic fallout stemming from it. That reasoning is almost certain to be challenged in court. But who can legally challenge the order is unclear. As soon as Biden announced disorder, various conservative legal groups began exploring who would have legal standing to sue, which would require proving they would be harmed by Biden's order. One possibility the house could sue over the order next year if Republicans win enough seats to take control in the fall. Its own shaky legal ground at best says linnae Erickson, the senior vice president for social policy education and politics at third way, a Washington think tank that looks for nonpartisan policy solutions. Ericsson is concerned that Biden's action overreaches in its reliance on the national emergency of the pandemic. And that the courts will determine such a step requires congressional action. The connection to the pandemic is pretty exaggerated, I think. Biden's order followed his promise on the campaign trail to take action to help some of the 44 million Americans with a collective $1.7 trillion in education debt hanging over their heads. Just after taking office last year, Biden himself said he wasn't sure he could use executive action alone to forgive a large tranche of student debt. I don't think I have the authority to do it by signing with a pen, he said in February 2021. But since he announced the loan debt forgiveness actions, the administration has rejected doubts about his authority to make such a move. The heroes act White House press secretary karine Jean Pierre said on August 25th, authorizes the secretary of education to take certain actions, he believes are necessary to ensure a borrower is not placed in a worse position financially due to a national emergency like the COVID-19 pandemic. The federal government temporarily suspended student loan payments early on in the pandemic. Biden announced last week that the suspension would end on December 31st. The loan forgiveness plan is targeted to go into effect the next day. Part of what the legal authority is being used to do here in a targeted way is to

Gun Owners of America's Erich Pratt on Suing Gun Manufacturers

"From a gun owner perspective though, this to me is the is the not just what we talk about about private sale, but now this opening it up and liberalizing this discussion on suing the manufacturer not over defective parts, not over anything else, but the gun itself being used in a criminal act. We saw this on the House oversight committee just a couple of weeks ago. How concerned should we because if you start losing manufacturers? Then that's the way to go to a total gun free society. If that's what they're dream is. Exactly right. I mean, people should just ask themselves, do I like buying new firearms? If all the gun manufacturers have been driven out of business. Now right now, in 2006, president George Bush signed legislation protecting gun makers from exactly what you're talking about. Not from liability if the gun malfunctions and explodes in your face. No, the gun manufacturers liable. But this is protects them from liability if the gun is working as it should. It's just that a bad guy took it and used it to commit murder. Okay, so that's what and you laid out the case, you know? We don't do this with Ford or any of the other car manufacturers, right? The car is working fine. Somebody uses it to drive through a parade. You don't hold the car manufacturer accountable. So this is very, very serious because the anti gun Democrats are talking about repealing that law. The reason that law was passed is because they were the left was bringing dozens, scores of court cases, frivolous court cases against the manufacturers, and even if they lost, it still forced the gun manufacturers to pay thousands or hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars defending themselves. You know, so even if they stay in business, the items that you love to purchase, the new products, the new firearms, they're going to cost a lot more.

"Terry mcauliffe beat himself up last night in a one on to interview in the so-called virginia roundtable and he just punched himself out. If it was a fight they would have stopped it. They said terry wanna leave now. Because you're so bad. Glenn young already winning glenn. Young gonna win you. You're desperate and you're terrible. I wanna go in reverse order of his nightmare comments last night and for the rest of the country. Terry mcauliffe is indeed the same terry mcauliffe. You've heard about for forty years. He's the jack the lad. Virginia politics is just a sort of buffoonish character. Arrogant smug everything. You don't want an elected official in old and around forever in reverse order of bad answers. Let's start with his lease bat. Answer where he tries to avoid the fact he called for overturning. The election of two thousand and and threw dirt on two thousand and four cut number fifteen in two thousand four. You said this about the election. Where president bush beat al gore. Let's go back to florida president. Jose okay so i i want to talk about. This was president. George bush legitimately elected but we went to a very contentious. Two thousand if you remember and remind you. It went all the way to the united supreme court and it took them through the second week of december to actually make a decision and the supreme court for the first time the history of our country. Stop the counting of ballots in florida in overturned the local virginia or the florida supreme court. So he got sworn once you're sworn we gotta move on but do not forget. That was very important. That the supreme court of florida stopped. The counting. a balanced wasn't the case in twenty twenty. Well you came out with a new ad this week challenging mr young kuenz prioritizing election integrity. You said glen again casting doubt on election result and putting trump's conspiracy theories i. This behavior is dangerous. And it's disqualifying so my question to you is. What is the difference between what you've said and when you're accusing him of well i'll say it again. That case in two thousand went to the united states supreme court.

They didn't do a bunch of were. I have only two clips. You had a bunch. Yeah but my two clips gave me new information. I have come to light okay. I didn't know any of this stuff. Although i did i to be honest about one of my think was one of these Mandela effect differences nation. Man new has come to light. So i have nine eleven tidbits but play the second one. I which is number two. So is the us safer today than twenty years ago. We asked several former officials who served in senior positions over the past two decades. Their collective answer could be summarized as yes but we are safer. We have done a lot to prevent another major catastrophic attack jane harman was democratic congresswoman from california a leading member of the house intelligence committee she was walking to the capitol dome when the nine eleven news broke. Don't where i was headed was the intended target of the fourth plane on the crashed in pennsylvania. So this is kind of personal. Oh that was never my understanding. My understanding was the white house or this. I mean this is like new information this come to light but now i don't know that's true because my understanding during the era which was the first three or four months of the event after the event when there's all kinds of interesting stuff going on there was Thought it was. It was headed for some bush compound. That was out in the middle class. I hadn't even heard that one. I heard i heard but it anyway. Crushing the nowhere. And if you'd enters a bunch of anomalies with that flight yeah to have like a Like very very very small hole in the ground with absolutely zero baggage blames wheels engines. Anything was a debris field spread out over ten miles or something well. We had the clip that you had discovered where rumsfeld said. They shot the plane down. Yes yeah. I think i might have that here. We go yes i do. Thanks for reminding me. Imagine the kind of world we would face if the people who bombed the best or the people who did the bombing in spain or the people who attacked the united states in new york shut down the plane over pennsylvania gone and then of course. There was this butte. The day before nine eleven september tenth the same donald rumsfeld then secretary of defense hannigan the day before nine one one secretary of defense donald rumsfeld declared war on foreign terrorists adversaries. Closer to home. It's the pentagon bureaucracy. He said money wasted by the military poses. A serious threat. In fact it could be said that it's a matter of life and death rumsfeld. Promise change but the next day the world change and in the rush to fund the war on terrorism. The war on waste seems to have been forgotten. My oh three budget calls for more than forty eight billion dollars in new defense spending more money for the pentagon when its own auditors admit. The military cannot account for twenty five percent of what it already spends according to some estimates we cannot track two point three trillion dollars in transactions. And it was so crazy that the airplane that crashed into the pentagon hit the hit the office the track that money. That was crazy and which really crazy about that as a recall. Everyone remembers all this stuff to reminding him. Which is that station near. The pentagon would have which we've had an outside record. It was recording had cameras. It recorded the jet coming in and sliding along the ground and slamming into the pentagon and that tape has never been released and never will be released and they will not release that tape. Why is there. Somebody sitting on top of it is urged king kong throwing it. What's the reason for not releasing the video national security man. What's wrong with you. What's what's what. Okay national security. I think we we can dredge all this stuff up and you're talking about it forever so let's go to the other clip which has new information just after the nine eleven attacks. President george w bush tried to reassure a shocked and terrified nation. The resolve of our great nation is being tested. But make no mistake. We will show the world that we will pass this test so now twenty years later did the us. Pass that test npr. National security correspondent. Greg fiery has the story as president. Bush flew back to washington on air force. One following those remarks on september eleventh. He was accompanied by michael. Morell the cia officer who briefed the president daily morale was in touch with cia headquarters which had given him heart-stopping intelligence. Did he had to urgently relate to the president. The message was that what happened. That morning was the first of two waves of attacks against the united states. In the end there was no second wave and in the past twenty years the only deadly attack carried out in the us with a direct link to al qaeda was a twenty nineteen nine shooting by a saudi arabian aviation student. That killed three people at the pensacola naval air station. So morell relaying define intelligence which missed the first attack completely predicted a second attack and that never came to pass What is wrong with the what is wrong with does grew. Who's running the operation. What would just gonna have to presume that all of this is misinformation and disinformation just for the sake of doing it. But but war on terror. Two point oh it's going to be very interesting to see the media who has to make choices now between the pharmaceutical industry pushing pushing pushing pushing booster's booster boosters posters and their actual informants who are all intelligence within the government slash deep state. Whatever you'd like to orders we should mention issue. But that's my point is that they get all of their information from. I mean look. What are you see on television.

"Then President George W. Bush addressed the nation from the Oval Office, the evening of September 11th. He took a rather circuitous route that day. You can hear the water cascading on the reflecting pools here in New York City. A moment ago, you heard the voice of an Compton, who was one of the few reporters traveling with President Bush that day, and we're so pleased he joins us again now and good morning. Good morning, Erin. And what a same kind of weather today that we all saw 20 years ago, And on that day, the president was in Florida, and he was reading to a group of Children. You were one of the few reporters in the small pool that travels constantly with the president. Unsuspecting like anyone else, that the day would become a day that we remember 20 years later. It was the last stop on a couple of days trip through Florida to talk about education. George Bush had only been president for less than eight months. And he sat there is the Children race through their vocabulary drills and when his chief of staff Andy Card, came into the classroom and whispered briefly in the president's here. And quickly step back. I wrote in my reporter's notebooks, 97 A. M and he whispers because the look on the president's face betrayed such gravity and what we did not know. But the president did. At that moment he had already asked the intelligence community's What could Al Qaeda due to attack Americans on U. S soil in that instant when Andy Card said America is under attack? George Bush got his answer. A B CS and Compton, our White House correspondent at the time in 2000 and one Was there with then President George W. Bush and I recall you then flying to several points around the country, finally stopping in Nebraska. The president demanded to go back to Washington as a new president. He knew he had to assure the American people. The government had not been crippled by this, but all the authorities said. You can't go back now that the Pentagon has also been hit. We actually had no idea where we would be flying. But when we ended up in the breast ska, the head of the strategic command, there's a nuclear bunker there, and the president was able to go mid afternoon. Down into this protected area and finally see him talk on a closed circuit video with his officials back in Washington and with officials in New York That's when he was told. The names on the manifest of some of the planes that were hijacked were known Al Qaeda operatives. And at that moment, George Bush knew he had become A wartime president. A B CS in Compton with us as we commemorate 20 years since the 9 11 attacks. By this time 20 years ago, American Airlines flight 11 had departed Boston on its way to Los Angeles and just now at 8:14 A.m. Eastern time United Airlines flight 1 75 also left Boston heading for Los Angeles. The plane strategically chosen long haul flights to be laden with fuel. And that fuel would end up exploding into the twin towers of the World Trade Center. Just moments from now I'm Aaron Carter ski and you're listening to live coverage from ABC News.

We wanted to do something. It was a terrifying time, and I remember struggling at that moment to even begin to make some sense of what happened. And then George W. Bush came on the screen in the lobby of the donor center today, our fellow citizens Our way of life. Our very freedom came under attack in a series of deliberate and deadly terrorist acts. I never considered myself a fan of President Bush. But as I listened to him, something resonated. Maybe because he framed this terrifying attack in a way that fit with the narrative I had grown up with in the 19 eighties. Politicians and pundits called 9 11 the day that changed everything, maybe so, but the ways we interpreted the attacks and responded to them quickly fell back on some pretty old patterns, our homes, our nation. All the things we believe in are in great danger. This.

No what i'm talking about. You take drugs you drink every day you're going to die. Thanks for the open borders. Joe so i. I told you these three stories about the drugs about the education about the airports because the fabric the social fabric of this country is being torn on every level the fabric that we have here our lifestyle our culture boo because of this progressive left movement. It's it's happening right before. Is i suggested schumer wanna stop violent crime. The senate majority leader chuck schumer. Now he's got no legislation do that what does he have legalized pot legislation as we need so this happened in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine same thing minus the race component wasn't a huge race component. Back that the nineteen seventy nine. I was eating my age. You'll be stunned. But i was around. I wasn't. I wasn't established yet. But i was a local news. Reporter actually interviewed jimmy carter in dallas when he was running in seventy six. So jimmy carter was president and he knew everything was collapsing very similar. Joe biden smarter than he worked harder than biden but he had the same detachment from reality but carter knew that he was in trouble. And here's what he said. The threat is nearly invisible in ordinary ways. It is a crisis of confidence. It is a crisis that strikes at the very hot and soul and spirit of national. Well we can see this crisis in the growing doubt about the meaning of our own lives and in the loss of a unity of purpose for our nation. Now that happened forty. Two years ago today july fifteenth nineteen seventy nine because carter had lost control of the whole process at carter did have the press on his side. Okay they did but it was so bad. You had a lineup. for gasoline. inflation was insane. A people were there was a recession. It was just crazy. Inflation was thirteen point three percent. Encarta was you know everything going back. But he had no solutions. Just like biden is not and in the election of nineteen eighty. Ronald reagan got the nomination. He be carter. Four hundred and eighty nine electoral votes to forty nine.

"This state mccain and did you hear any uprising or outcry in press about it anywhere no. You're probably hearing it for the first time right now. You didn't know this was out there. I'm just sitting here going so now. The radical left progressive left fields. They can say anything they want. They can tell you anything you want to tell you. And it doesn't have to be even remotely true me fabricated from the jump cubans right to choose their own government. Black lives matter global foundation. I just shocking. And here's something more shocking. They got one hundred million dollars from corporate america. Hundred million again amazon microsoft gatorade airbnb wonder records rich crackers. Are you kidding me. He given us people money to do that. To spread that kind of it's beyond propaganda that is basis in truth at all. Propaganda always is a little basis in truth this. Nothing's garbage. So you know when you see companies donating to these radical groups. Okay in france. It's all about covert thirty. Five percent of the sixty seven million. People who live in france are vaccinate. There is a huge vaccine hesitancy movement. I don't know how to say that. And french vaccine hesitancy big movement much bigger than in the usa remember. Seventy five percent of american adults are vexed thirty five percent in france. Why because they don't have the backs but they're hesitancy crew is more militant than ours here so there were massive protests yesterday on best deal so bastille days is kind of like the fourth of july in usa. All right rule tate. Okay why because macron and the french government said you have to have a vaccine passport. If you wanna do anything go anywhere so you wanna ride public transportation. What a restaurant. You got to have a little vaccine passport to do that. And now there's violence so about two thousand pete. I'm sorry about twenty thousand people. Twenty thousand people protested and it's all over the place that's france again. You're gonna see that here. You're going to see that coverage here so the left doesn't want to show you that because that bolsters the anti vacs movement. I'm a big fan of the vaccine. Book is so you're not. I'm going to show you what's happening around the world all right back here in the usa If you're gonna fly likely going to get hose. This is shocking. So we american taxpayers. Through the relief plan cova the bind people gave the airlines fifty four billion dollars in pandemic a lot of jack fifty four billion dollars all right from july first to july sixth jet below fifty one percent of their flights delay southwest airlines thirty nine percent. American airlines just gave you a number three hundred forty five flights delayed in five days. Pretty big today. I had my staff to do today. Total delays in the usa. Eight hundred seventy seven flights cancellations one hundred twenty nine so now that we covert on the run here at least seems that way people going back to fly. And you can't get off the ground. Why because the airlines don't have enough personnel pilots. They don't have people on the ground at the airports. They don't have them why nobody knows. So i'm telling everybody and i do this myself. If the flight is within four hundred miles drive i know. Gas prices are crazy. But i tell you go to the airport. It's dicey whether you're going to get anywhere. You're going to have to wait. It's going to be painful. You got and you got a mask you this drive. Okay you can do seventy on most of the interstates so and then you know. It's it's and this is even. They don't even have to deal with the overseas flights any now because most countries you can't fly there this just in the united states and having a pilot's baltimore very very troubled city. Is anybody knows dinner so in baltimore public schools. Ninety three percent of the students are minorities. Seventy six percent african americans. I think that might be the highest percentage of minority students in the country. So why kids don't go to baltimore public schools. Why because they're out of control so according to a report by project baltimore public high schools in that city forty one percent of high school students averaged a d. average average average got a d. average. That means they're functionally illiterate. Forty-one percent d. Okay twenty one percent so something wrong now. They blame on cova muddying school and they didn't do anything at all and okay all right. Maybe but forty-one percent you don't have discipline in school if you don't have accountability on the part of the principal. School bores the teachers and the students. All minute together then have these kids on drug overdose about one. Hundred thousand died last year. Okay so dr nora vocal of the national institute and drug you said you know it's the highest number of od desk ever record and covert hoven. Did it now. I did it so if you read killing them off. You'll know that organized crime controls the distribution of narcotics in america. They pump it into every county every city then sold by individual street gangs and they're the ones shooting and killing each other. Because joe biden's open border policies as i've explained i'm sorry to be repetitive. Most of the interdiction has been now shifted over to migrant duties feeding housing or that therefore more narcotics is being smuggled into the us by the mexican cartels than ever before in the history of the country leading the league. There is fenton all which will kill you not a matter of if it's when you take fat and all you're.

"Santa free country so joe biden head a little bit on schedule today too much but a little bit so at eleven forty five. He told the nation that he's going to give money not a shock. That's what the vitamins does give folks money. And then osceola rolled into dc official working visit. Not sure why. This was necessary because dr merckel is out of there in october. No more berlin for her. She'll go to her country. Home the she's dot and then after noonday at a joint press conference so no news there but there was a and six thirty. Had a nice little dinner and whatever okay But this today was an interesting day for the biden administration and it'll never be reported honestly and accurately not that it's bad it is but we all should know what the game is by this. Talk if you don't know what prison in biden and his administration are shooting for then. I don't know what say. But i know you know because you're watching me and taking an interest in your country while many don't okay so they're the crux of the matter. Today was joe. Biden's american rescue plan now. This was designed as a massive giveaway because of covid trillions and trillions of dollars. Merican rescue plan. Now that's not the infrastructure plan that's another trillion dollar giveaway coming down okay. But this to rescue plan. This sends checks to americans because they might have gotten hurt in the marketplace. Because kovin some people need that people don't but if you make below seventy five thousand dollars you get a check because you have kids. You don't have kids you'll get a check another way but this is about the kids so you get three hundred dollars a month for six months. Eighteen hundred bucks and you'll less than half. The kids are between six and seventeen to fifty six right to you right to help out. Because they're cova now when anybody's free money and i my life got very little free money. My grandmother gave me a few bucks once. I'll out about it. We get free money. you know. it's a good thing you know. You can use it for worthy purposes. I guess but this is the whole democratic party. Now so those of you were earning less than one hundred fifty k. And down you're gonna get money and the goal is to just level everybody out in about the same. That's going to take a long time. But that's what the goal is. Okay to soundbites. I will give the president the lead position. Go to the people who say we can't afford to give the middle class a break. I say we can't afford it by making people at the top and the big corporations over fifty which paid no taxes last year at all to start paying the fresh air not gonna gouge them pay their fair share because people who are working hard and paying taxes deserve a break. He is going to gouge him. I'm getting gouged. Pay my taxes. I run three corporations. We pay our taxes. I hire a guy swifty. Pay a lot of money to pay. And my instructors are pay the taxes between new york state tax and the federal government paying a ton of money right and so i don't really wanna pay anymore because i'm paying my fair share with the secure fair if he did. He wouldn't have given us speech yesterday in philadelphia where he said that any election reform by red states is Racist jim crow. That was a lie. Just put in front so leave it to calm la harris. To tell the truth. The vice president of the united states after biden bloviating about fair share harris stepped up until the truth. Go this tax. Cut will be issued in monthly payments. This has never happened before and america. Yes it is a big deal. I have been fighting for months in for quite some time even when i was in the senate from monthly payments because i know if the struggle to make ends meet is monthly. The solution has to be also. That's right haman wants to send us not me but you know one hundred twenty five k. Down she governance is send. Send us money because we really can't do it on our own. No can't so we gotta get money and you can't afford that that can't happen or long period of time unless you take money away from another sector of america and the more money you take away from the corporations the less they will hire and research and development and they'll pass across on you so yeah com is going to pay you three or four hundred a month but paying that right out the back door on higher prices in you see what inflation is. This is a con. It's a show game you know. Show game three shows and the guy goes around like this. You pick the ps. What this is. It's vote-buying all right. So we're going by your vote you lur earn Less than one hundred twenty five k. Me send you money now. We'll just think of any excuse with a cold via twitter. Whatever maybe storm climate change We're gonna send you money and vote for us because those me republicans they're not going to send you money. They may lower your tax rate which would probably benefit you in the end. But they're not gonna send you money we will. And that's what this is. all about. Tacoma harasses socialist.

'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. I'm Jeff Lunden in New York.

"Would have been the well up until Cove in the performance of the economy and certainly be a performance of the stock market. It was kind of interesting. Go back and read this. But, um, stock market hit record highs all the time. Away the time, time and again in the course of his administration, But that's that's happened before. From Trump's Inauguration day, The Dow Jones industrial average rose from 19,008 to 30,009 and increase of 56% in four years. He said. With that, unfortunately, is below the 71% of doubt. Saw in Obama's first term or Clinton's first term, the market was up 111%. Remember the nineties being a roaring time I would not have guests. In one term. It was up 111. So 1 11 for Clinton 71 for Obama. And 56 for Trump. That a similar trend was true of the S and P 500 gained 67% under Trump. 84% under Obama 79% under Clinton, all in single terms first terms. The sole exception of the past three decades has been President George W. Bush. The Dow. There fell 3.7%, the S and P down 12.5 and his first four years in office. But then again, you had 9 11 in that 1st 1st term. The figure be unwelcome news to Trump frequently course telling the stock market's performance. Let's see. The outgoing president still highlighted the market in a farewell address from Tuesday. Saying the market had one record after another with 148 stock market highs during a short time period, boosting the retirement and pensions of hard working citizens across the nation. Which is true. But, uh I mean, every time it's up a point Since the beginning. I mean, that's those who have all been records, so there been technically over 30,000 record highs. Um, thus far. But not me. I remember the roaring nineties. I just don't remember the roaring quite that loudly. It's coming up on 6 19 will check our sports ahead. Single Be in. What else do we have? Traffic weather.

"But then it be broader than the sex that we look at the entire process leading up to this that is involved a consistent effort, promoting misinformation and disinformation promoting the alternative version of reality that somehow this was a stolen election. The insight Into come to Washington, the incitement to violence. This is part of a larger, deeper set of issues, and I wouldn't treat the sixth as a simple standalone matter, But I would treated as part of an ongoing process and, of course, the person whose lead that is the is the commander in chief himself. The president. I wonder how you reflect on The video that was taken down by Twister in the immediate aftermath of the six in which he said he had called the National Guard. The first thing he said, was untrue. Well, that's been characteristic of Donald Trump's behavior. Over the years. You've been going back in before he was president. The truth is really a stranger when he speaks, and he creates and fosters an alternative reality. And the scary thing is, there are significant number of people who ultimately wind up being unable to distinguish between the falsehoods and the truth. As someone who has served under a Republican president. What do you now make off the plans to impeach this president for a second historic time? While I understand the symbolic value of doing that? I do think that the likelihood of his being removed before January 20th is very slim, given the amount of time that's left. And then they have to make a decision about whether devoting a lot of time to this, as opposed to helping the new president and his Cabinet in place at deal with some of the burning issues that we face, whether that's a useful expended church time. Even if you put the timing issue to one side, do you think it's important that the president should be prevented from standing for office ever again? I don't think you should ever be standing for office again. But again, it's not as urgent as making sure we get Through the inauguration in the next eight days. Do you think in the next eight days, President Trump continues to be a threat to the U. S government to the way in which the government is running. I do think that the law abiding people in the agencies are not going to obey illegal orders. We will have. Ah, think of Commander in chief has retreated into himself and is living in his own head. But I do think there are a lot of competent officials who are actually in charge of operating the government. That will be faithful to their oath to the Constitution. I wonder, just finally. How you reflect on the events of the last few days, the political convulsions as well as what happened on the six says as somebody who has been Uh, somebody who served under Republican government. How do you reflect on on what's taken place? I think it order make sure reflect that, even for a country that has been committed to the Constitution, democracy for decades, and many years there is a fragility and we need to be vigilant. And everybody has a role to play in making sure that we approach the truth that we don't shit we treat lies as an alternative version of reality, and I think it has to be Himself searching. Was former secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff, who served under Republican President George W. Bush. Now a week is a long time and politics a week ago, would have seemed outside the realms of possibility that President Trump would face a second historic impeachment just eight days before he leaves the White House. But what happened on July the sixth Is propelling the Democrats to do just that that speak to Democratic congresswoman Carolyn Bordeaux. She is the U. S representative for Georgia's seventh Congressional District and the only member of Congress to flip the district from Red to blue. Congratulations on doing that to you. First of all, Welcome to the program. Let's let's start by just getting you to react to what you've just heard a former security official from of Homeland Security under George W. Bush, saying that he doesn't think that the president should stand for office again that that must strike you as a pretty remarkable It is and just shows the level of abuse This'll president has perpetuated on the democracy. I absolutely agree with that, and we need to find a way to make sure that we protect the country and hold him accountable for what's happened. Let's talk about the impeachment process because it's quite likely that what's happening today in the House is not going to result in the vice president, saying that the 25th amendment should be invoked. And then the impeachment proceedings will kick in. You have been firmly behind this. Just explain to us what you're thinking has been Sure. So I'm coming from Georgia. Ah, place where the president has been trying to pressure our secretary of state who is a Republican who actually voted for the president, but he's been trying to pressure him. To change the results of the election. And, of course, Georgia voted for President elect Biden. That was clearly an illegal action. It failed, and when it failed, then he turned around and incited a violent mom to attack the capital to try to stop the certification of the election. Wilder capital was overrun by this violent mob. The president refused to deploy the National Guard to defend the capital. Um, you know, this is insurrection. It is an attempted coup day, Tom, and we have to have a swift response and impeachment. If the vice president won't respond, then we are compelled to support impeachment. It is your phone belief that he incited the crowd. Is there something specific that he said that you feel that will be the single thing that we point will be pointed to In these articles. You can go through the transcript of his speech, and there are many instances where he says things like he hopes that vice president Pence will do the right thing. But if not, you know, we know what to do that we have to be strong. When we go to the capital. We can't be weak. Now on the other thing, everybody needs to realize that he's saying these kind of whipping up whipping up the crowd of words. With the crowd that everybody knows, has been discussing violent insurrection on social media. So he is doing that knowing full well what their internal discussions have been on DeSoto. It is You know, it's just a phenomenal thing. And just one last thing, you know that that you don't you don't have to hurry with this because we are going to come back to you, Caroline Bordeaux. Just so we're just gonna return to a summary off the latest World news and we will be back with Congresswoman Carolyn Border. This is new South..

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.

Fed Considers Rate Cut as Political Pressure Mounts

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.

That's a Bloomberg business flash politics policy, power and law continues. All right. Thank you, Greg. You know, congress is prepared to pass a two week stopgap spending Bill this week. They wanna keep the federal government funded through December twenty first what this does is allows them to put this whole budget debate on hold. 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. So it now depends upon the leadership in the house and the Senate and real presidential leadership. Sir. We've been asking a lot of our guests if they have any personal remembrances of President Bush at this time, if you have any well, let me say he he's so well known for Desert Storm and he demonstrated. What you do you bring your allies? Together, you go in with L overwhelming force. I was there in Kuwait. When. We we took over the capitol. I flew there at that time. 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. They'll listen, you know, it's very interesting. We only have about twenty seconds. 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. Exist and are much more powerful than just being rhetoric Mombassa because people don't know you the people you want to convince if he is he bluffing. What not that? That's not good. They should know when you really mean business, and you do it most of it behind the scenes US Senator Al D'Amato of New York, we have to leave it there. Thank you so much.
