"president reagan" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"On Bloomberg Radio. What President Biden stimulus plan would mean for the 11 million Still unemployed teachers caught between safety and getting our kids back in the classroom, and President Biden turns his attention to immigration, what's right and what's good for our economy. From New York. Welcome to the second hour. Bloomberg Balance of Power I'm David Weston, president Buying today is signing three executive orders, reversing Trump administration policies on asylum, legal immigration and reuniting Children with their guardians, which may end up being just a first step toward more comprehensive immigration reform. Still with us from the first hour of balance of power is David Miliband. President and CEO of the International Rescue Committee, David Thank you so much for staying with us, and I want to pick up on this report you have out from Guaracy nine ways. Biden, President Biden can help 235 million of the world's most vulnerable. Who are those 235 million? These are people who have fled because of war and conflict. 40 million of them are refugees or asylum seekers. There are another 35 40 million who are Would've called internally displaced. In other words, they are homeless within their own countries or resolve the conflict. The rest of people trapped in poverty that number of people who require humanitarian assistance. In other words, they require international system to help feed them to keep them alive. Those are those numbers have swelled by about 40% as a result of Cove it so we're seeing partly a covert effect, which is short term, but there's also frankly a long term. Effect here. The number of refugees has been growing over the last 15 years. It's higher than any time since World War two the number of the internally displaced fleeing war also a record numbers since World War two And so what we are calling on the BIS administration to do is recognize that America can't solve this problem on its own, but it needs to be part of the solution. It's work on covert internationally is part of that. It's work to admit refugees, the most vulnerable category of refugees to 125,000 into the USA Years, part of a long standing US by part of an tradition that was just lost over the last four years. That's important, but it also involved issues like what goes on in the Northern Triangle of Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras because that's the roots of the migration. That happens into the U. S. Or the attempts to get the U. S. And so we're calling for both short term effort but also a strategic effort to recognize. That the global issue of humanitarian crisis needs to be tackled. If it's not, it has political, economic social consequences that are quite severe. Let's take apart. Some of those is one of them the 125,000 number, which is, as I said, we used to admit in terms of refugees. How many do we have? Admit now? Well, not quite. Let me tell you this. David, Former President Reagan eyes No, is known for many things what he's not known for his. He admitted more refugees to America per year than any other President, American history. Was just at the end of the Carter administration in 1980, the 1918 Refugee Act was passed in the early 19 eighties, President Reagan was admitting more than 200,000 refugees a year. Many of them from South Vietnam. Obviously, now the historic average over the last 30 years has been about 92 95,000 on, but that's what President Obama reason, his last year in office. The number this year not just because of covert the president determined before coach but he didn't want the former president. Trump wanted only 15,000. So there's a job of rebuilding to be done, and President Biden Said that he wants to get to $125. These are the most vulnerable refugees, their widows, their victims of torture. The U. S. Those security screening and then organizations like the International Rescue Committee helped integrate them into National life, Even if we put the number of a 200,000 to take the number you had from the regular castration. That's almost a drop in the bucket compared to the 235 million we're talking about. So what more is required? Is it money as a practical matter? Yes, but it's not just that. I mean, the first thing to recognize is that Nearly 90% of that 235 million figure, a concentrated in 20 disaster struck country, very the countries. Hoping with war so countries like Syria countries like Afghanistan or that country's coping with the refugees from those war wars countries like Jordan. Now. If you think about it in that sense 20 countries, it suddenly becomes much more manageable on. Essentially, you have to tackle the roots of the problem, which is that you need active diplomacy on burying closed by the way. Interstate Blinken has started. He's made clear that when it comes, for example, what war in Yemen, the world's largest humanitarian crisis, he's determined to be part of the solution Robin part of the problem. Secondly does take money. It takes a money, humanitarian aid money, but it also takes Support for the national economies. You feel the economy of Jordan. You've seen your national debt to GDP ratio more, Let's double as a result of hosting Syrian refugees. You need help from international financial. Institutions, but it also takes third. It takes policy reform. When you're talking about people who are refugees for 10 20 years, you have to think about education. You have to think about employment, not just about keeping people alive. So it's really those three problems that are especially important and they have a double meaning for the most vulnerable groups who are also on women and girls. Two thirds of the people who the International Rescue Committee served. Were based with global headquarters in New York. But we work in 200 field sites in 40 countries, two thirds of the people that we serve the women and girls, and so you're you're getting a real impact on the most vulnerable if you take that approach of diplomacy, plus financing plus policy reform. Let me ask you a very unfair question Quickly. What is the argument for why this is in the U. S Best interest causes you know full well as foreign Minister of UK, you have to make it politically palatable. Yeah, I mean, the simple answer is, If you don't solve problems, they become your problems. And so don't just see this as Yemen's problem or El Salvador's problem. It's all of our problem. Because the problems that start in one country that started serial started as a little bit. They don't end Serial. Also little they move on, and that's why it's.

They're standing on the sidewalk between a small fence and a highway and they actually have to inflatables up. There is the rat and giant cockroach and the protesters are yelling into bullhorns. Not surprisingly the owners of that shoprite did not like having the union and a giant rat protesting outside their store. They did not like it so much. They complained to their lawyer. Their lawyer complained to the federal government and the federal government brought a case against the rat. This is one of several rod cases. The government is working on right now. They're arguing that scabby. The rat is not just annoying and unsightly but that in many cases it is illegal under federal law.

Donald Trump is finished, but will 'Trumpism' prevail?
"It's been more than a week since the us presidential election joe biden of course has claimed victory whereas the president is yet to concede defeat but when donald trump eventually leaves office the question. We have to ask ourselves is is trumpism. Really finished after all the media conventional wisdom the new york times washington. Post the major networks. Cnn msnbc all that conventional wisdom is that the twenty twenty election represents a repudiation of trumpism and what's trump luckily to do after he leaves office well for more. Let's turn to patrick. J buchanan senior adviser to president reagan nixon and ronald reagan. Pat has been a regular fixture in america's opinion pages and cable television shows for generations. Ninety ninety two and ninety six pat buchanan ran for the presidential nomination of his party. The republican party on america first platform pass walking back to you between the lines. Good to your tom now. Let's start with the election itself to spotted trifecta of crises health economic racial the us congressional and presidential contests were very tight. How do you account for that. I think there were tight for this reason. The covid virus which hammered us in march and april and then all during the summer and full took the lodge. That's two hundred and thirty thousand americans and they induced an economic decline unrivalled since the great depression. And then you have to racial turmoil in the country. And the wake of the killing of george floyd in minneapolis riots. And and things like that. So he's really damaged trump in the eyes of the public and his administration and normally they would've killed any presidential candidate. But i will say that in the fall. When trump was further behind he basically one mechanic team won the battle against biden. It was surging at the end of the campaign but he did not get over the top or at least so far so i think what you can say is trump and trumpism won the campaign. They lost the election because of the burdens. They had to terry which were too happy to cross the finish line. And let's not forget that in the late up to the election the metric conventional wisdom the polls the pundits. They predicted a democratic sweep. A blue wave washing the republicans out of power capturing the senate and delivering an alleged democratic congressional majority if the democrats did indeed have a clean sweep of the congress and the white house what would radical progressive in the american takes. What would that have made if you had nancy. Pelosi in control of the house and chuck schumer and control. The should i which looks less and less likely now and preston biden into white house. Biden's problem would be the tremendous pressure from the progressive left wing of this party to impose his leftist agenda. The party home to the country in the first two years of his administration. And i think it would be virtually impossible biden to resist the democrats cheap to kill the filibuster. Which would eliminate the ability of the republicans to stop their agenda and we would be off to the races with medicare for all the green new deal statehood for puerto rico statehood for dc. Defunding the cops. Pack the supreme court the whole left wing democratic agenda. They would try to ram through with fifty one votes. In the senate and biden frankly would be restraining force because republicans wouldn't be able to do it if they lost the filibuster in the senate which is what. Barack obama urged the democrats to take away if they win the senate okay now bought and has pasta to sydney electoral college. Votes needed to win the white house now given that it's very hard to prove widespread electoral fraud pat. Why want trump just accept defeat. Here's trump is demanding that he be allowed to play out last play of the deal. Because i think he feels he has been treated horribly by the democrats and the liberals in the press and he's not gonna do them a favour. He's got a right to make sure. The counselor made and certain things happen by certain dates. He's not going to speed up the transition. It's not gonna be a pleasant transition at all. He's going to treat them the way they felt. They treated him when he came in with the russia investigation and all the rest of it. So i think what you're getting is. Trump is looking at upon this if it succeeds is a hostile takeover of the government of the united states. And he is acting to resisted with every legal constitutional weapon. He has so it's This is not a cordial country power at all. Okay but with dany. Before the nineteen sixty presidential election between richard nixon and john f kennedy. That was very taught. There was a lot of speculation about electoral fraud in texas and illinois. And that of course benefited. The democrats won that election now. Apologies for the very scratchy. Sound quality of these vintage news report from sixty years ago. but he's nixon. Your boss pat here. He is at four. Am at republican headquarters. After the election conceding. Defeat to and and results shows come in if the present trend continues If mr kennedy and senator kennedy will be the next president of the united states senators kennedy now. And i want you know that. Certainly this trend has continued and he does become our next president that he will have my. That's richard nixon conceding. Defeat john f. kennedy in nineteen sixty pat buchanan. Why can't trump do a nixon accept defeat graciously that at four am gathering. My wife was present. She worked for richard nixon and the nineteen sixty campaign and travel. The country would and the point is that was a different time in a different country. That america's today america's bitterly divided and one of the contributing factors is the is the belief correct in my view that donald trump was denied. Not only a good transition but donald trump was investigated by the fbi and during the transition. They went after his state of the fbi did and they had a two year investigation beach. Kim they try to defeat him then they tried to overthrow him. And i think trump feels this and he says i established nothing. They can go. I mean they can go too far as i'm concerned and we're going to run this old way out and make sure every ballot is counted and all the towns are accurate. And whether or not we're going to go to court and exercise our rights and we're not going to pretend otherwise that this is a pleasant for easy transfer of power this was a hostile takeover and trump's view. I mean they're campaign run against him former first lady. Michelle obama is already talking about the house and he could and racism and the rest endemic pain in what he come folks voted for. So i think look you gotta divided country and there's no sense pretending otherwise and trump is not gonna gauge any pretense.
"president reagan" Discussed on Thrivetime Show | Business School without the BS
"Very special occasion because on today's show we are interviewing the man the religion who has been a top adviser and a consultant for president. Richard nixon president ronald reagan. Jack kemp for president. George w bush for president donald j trump any recently was asked to not go to president by the great president. Donald j trump roger stone. Welcome onto the drive time show. How are you sir klay. I'm really delighted to be with you for those. Who don't know we met last week. Get in the closing days of the two thousand twenty election had a great time there in nashville with many many many patriots. Now we're both watching the slow motion theft of the presidency of the united states. Ironically clay can vouch for this. I predicted all of this last week. If you didn't long print nieces I'm a veteran of ten national presidential campaigns They're all republicans except for i supported. Gary johnson the libertarian when the republicans on advisedly nominated mitt romney for president. That was about. It was a bridge too far for me and i've never really seen anything like this clay. This is the most extraordinary thing i have seen. In other words we have always had ballot fraud and corruption on the fringes of american. Politics is always been prevalent in those jurisdictions. Where one party has total control. Those tend to be urban areas headed by democrats. Yes named last great republican machine. I don't think you can do that. but the level of cheating here starting with the effort in numerous states to change the laws to set the table for cheating so for example in pennsylvania a democratic legislature a democratic governor. Decide that you can turn in votes as long as nine days after the election as long as you claim that they were that they were executed on election day correct. How do we know the they really were so. In other words the democrats can look at the results in pennsylvania. A figure out. How many votes were they are. And then go. Essentially manufacture those votes fabricate the votes. Were seeing this repeating itself in numerous dates the ballot showing up in dumpsters showing up in the strangest places in adorable testimony from people who write telling me the most horrific stories is very important that all this stuff be collected that it'd be chronicle very carefully because it is going to be the subject of a of an appeal or an effort to avert a stolen presidency an effort to void the decision by the mainstream media that they say they declare who the winners it legally as you know the secretaries of state or the other appropriate state functionaries assert who the winner is when they certified their actual results. Not the new york touch. You know what i want to do. Is i want to tee up an idea. And then i wanna give the listeners. A lot of. I want to put the listeners into act end into activation mode into action mode. So the idea i want. T- up is you were a bunch of military not military but much of armed agents stormed your home and tried to put you into prison. They take you away to prison and when you found yourself what what time in the morning everybody show up to arrest you. It was six. Am thanks to cnn. And i i guess. Every person in america pretty much knows the story. But i have a long association with donald trump. I have known him for years. We became friends when i was running. Governor ronald reagan's campaign for president new york subsequently went to work for him. I- i had the idea of his running for president in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight former president richard nixon who i also worked for actually thought of it before i did an express that to donald by the way i wanted him to run again in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. I want him to run again in twenty sixteen party twenty twelve when we nominated that hapless boob mitt romney and i want. I was really obviously delighted when he decided to make america. Great again and twenty sixty And because of my a longtime relationship with the president. I was targeted by robert. Muller's a bully squad investigation. We now know is completely illegitimate fat fabricated information at six. Am how many vehicles. How many armed people. How many people shut that me set. The stage for two years of the muller operation leaked illegally to the mainstream media and they predicted over and over again. Roger stone will be indicted for treason espionage conspiracy against the united states Tax evasion money laundering. Millions of dollars into rubles our rubles into dollars. I forget what it was mail. Fraud wire fraud aiding and abetting a conspiracy unauthorized access to a protected computer receipt dissemination of stolen information just really sounds or if it doesn't it the problem of course is none of those things were true and rather than just contact my lawyer which is the way white collar crimes are usually handle even when their oguz they they initiated a raid on my home six. Am on january. Twenty fifth twenty nine hundred seventeen. Armored vehicles arrived twenty nine heavily armed fully swat geared fbi agents. There was a helicopter overhead. I know from the security video. That i have now seen that a two and fabius. Fbi boats pulled up to the dock behind my house in prague. Men jumped out Also heavily armed every carrying assault weapons. They had a bunch of these vicious canines on leashes. That was the scariest part. Frankly and then. They brought giant battering ram up to the front door of my house. As if i was not going to respond. They pounded on the door. I opened the door. I was wearing my iconic. roger stone. Did nothing wrong t shirt. You want lows by way you can go to stone cold truth dot com in the store or you can go to fight back dot store.
Dealing With Pilot Drug Tests
"Professional pilots, we have to deal with drug tests sometimes on a random basis, sometimes on a preemployment basis and you may be wondering how this all got started. Well, we have some. We have some druggies to thank. There was an accident in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, and I have a link to the action report in our show coach. Accident in Durango Colorado Trans Colorado Airlines flight twenty, two, eighty, six, crashed during an approach. Now is the CO pilot who was flying. He was a not very competent co-pilot who had an alcohol problem, but alcohol was not a factor in this crash the captain. had been reportedly using cocaine about ten hours before the flight, his girlfriend related to. Others that they had been doing cocaine together although she refused to speak to the accident board. So as a result of this president, Reagan signed. A bill. That required alcohol and drug testing of people in the transportation business, and that includes of course pilots. So there's going to be background screening and drug testing of all airline employees and what they test for is marijuana cocaine opiates. PCP amphetamines. And you have to take that test prior to getting employed, and then you have to periodically take it on a random basis as a pilot or as as another worker. For example, ground school instructors, air traffic control workers, aircraft dispatchers, a nation mechanics. Flight attendants, flight instructors and ground security people they all have to drug test. So now you've heard me say this before if you are interested in recreational drugs like when you're on vacation or it's a few days off or something like that, you might want to consider getting into a different industry because you need to be drug free the rest of your life while you're an airline worker or airline pilot. So you can decide I know marijuana is legal here in Colorado, for example, and. During during the long shut down for Covid may be some people here in Colorado were tempted to to try it because it'll get out of your system and a few weeks. Not a good idea. You can be tested drug testing on a random basis at anytime. I remember when I was a a simulator instructor. At Boeing I had a call one day said you have to go to such and such an address and be drug tested and you have to show up within I? Think they gave me an hour to get to that location. So, I drove to that location and I already had to I had to pee pretty bad when I got there and wouldn't you know it? There was this one facility and there were a dozen people ahead of me in line it was a very painful weight and then I finally. Got Scene and and gave my specimen. But if I had if I had said, well, just can't go or. I just don't want to do it now or it's not convenient for me that would have been the same as refusing the test, which is basically for all practical purposes the same as failing test. There are lots of things in the regulation that talk about. About how they treat you if you refuse or fail a test, it's not the total end of your career, but there are some it may be or it may not be depending on your circumstances. I suppose if you're driving to the testing facility and you get in the car car accident or something that would be a legitimate reason to not show up other than that, you need to go and be tested when they tell you on a random basis, it's time to take a test. So when I was a united airlines as a as a captain on the triple seven, there were several times when I. was randomly drug tested upon arriving back at Kennedy from a Tokyo flight. And I had no no apprehension about taking drug test what I had an apprehension about was it might delay me and I might miss my commuter flight back to. DENVER. So united, they would send this message prior to our descent telling us that we're going to be drug tested, which is a really neat thing for the company to do because typically at the top of the. Sent. Before you start your descent, everybody goes to the bathroom and then after you land, you might not need to go again for a while. So they gave us a little forewarning and then when you land in a case like that, there's someone from from management who meets the crew and escorts them to the to the drug testing facility, which is at the
The Last Four Years, The Last Five Decades (with Rebecca Traister)
"Idea for a future radio story. Today, is January twentieth. Two Thousand Sixteen. Donald Trump was just inaugurated. That was me four years ago I wanted to capture my fears and concerns about trump's presidency. So I hopped in the recording studio my old job recorded a little audio time capsule. I've kept this file on my computer for four years. Didn't listen to it until recently. So many people in this country are so excited about trump. Is can't believe I could disagree with this many people. Innocent innocent extremely privileged belief. But I guess that's why I wanted to ask you avery of the future. You who have lived through one term of. The trump presidency. So weird just a few questions. So I recorded fifteen minutes of questions about the state of the country for my future self, which is to say me. Currently. To answer did he build a wall around Mexico or did he try Oh man I mean yeah. He's still trying like actively according to customs and Border Protection, there's been three hundred, seventy, one miles of new wall completed but there's still a lot more to go. So we'll see is marijuana legal. Depends on the state you live in, but it's fully legal in eleven of them. So yeah. Yes or no Legal. Well, no. It could be. There were a bunch of other questions that I won't bore you with because I. Realize I can't actually answer most of the questions from my past self. Like they're all kind of complicated and still in process and it turns out a lot of the rights I was worrying about four years ago are still very much under threat now. Including the issue that I was most frightened about. On Donald Trump's inauguration day. The very first question I asked to my future self. Was this one. Are Abortions illegal. Did HE DE-FUND PLANNED PARENTHOOD? Of course I, know abortions are still legal for now the law of the land upholds Roe v Wade. Although I'm not sure I really understood how complicated the answer to this question actually was. And is especially now that trump has appointed three supreme court justices. So I want to start asking you that big question. Are Abortions illegal. Well, yeah. They are legal right now for some people, they have been inaccessible to millions more preceding trump's inauguration. Rebecca Tracer is a writer at large for New York magazine and the cut. So where we are right now is that we're closer to abortions being illegal than we've been in my life time nominated by President Reagan and serving thirty years on the court. He was often the crucial swing vote you know Anthony Kennedy's retirement breath Kavanagh's confirmation, and here today not because I want to be. Terrified riding completely over the testimony of Christine Lousy Ford I. Do not believe that these charges can barely per bed judge cabin from serving on the court Susan Collins vote for breakfast all these things on a court. level. were sort of big publicly covered wakeup calls and there has been women in the streets. Right there have been women and men in the streets there have been people in the streets. Four years into Donald, trump being president the like. The reality of that is hitting a lot of people hard. But one of the ways that we got to this point is that the inaccessibility and the project of making abortion illegal. Didn't hit anybody hard enough. Inaccessibility isn't just recent. It's now it happens now around the country for millions of women for whom enough barriers have been put in place that that role might as well not exist because it actually doesn't serve as a barrier. It doesn't serve as a protection of their right to get the care that they need. So there are states. In the country where the the laws are so prohibitive where there have already been people jailed for abortion.

They're not journalists at all. Of the Bidens family corruption in the reporting very significant reporting in the New York Post and that I mean, they're documents their videos here.

You smear anyone that speaks of it because the party demands that you not speak of it and on the party and the media are inseparable. It's the Democrat Party and the American media.

To keep lying because they love the lie More than we love the truth. It is pretty extraordinary how much they love and embrace. They love that word embrace. I don't but they love that word embrace. They embraced the lie, and they despise the truth. It's an interesting thing for someone that calls themselves a journalist. Fascinating. Well, they're saying it's Russian disinformation. It's Russian disinformation. Clapper. The liar shift the liar. The news media's take news media people that interview them are liars and frauds and Charlotte wins.

"It's also important to point out that america's changing improving relationship with the soviet union was not crafted to hinder honest dialogue often painful dialogue between the warsaw pact and nato russia forever it almost feels like but russia feared enemy armaments on its doorstep and ronald reagan understood. This you know. Ronald reagan was old enough. He remembers the world. War two Who was his favourite prison of all time around reagan. It was fdr okay. Fdr and fdr we might point out was the only major democratic leader. The only one who predicted that moscow would be held by the russians against hitler. So that's that's worth recognizing also but ronald reagan also had long determined that deep lasting wounds from prior wars could not forever justify the long and very harsh occupation of the quote captive nations unquote of eastern europe. We might add that. The polish pope. John paul the second shared this conviction after all he had lived and struggled and suffered with millions of others under both the the nazi boots of germany and the boots of soviet of the soviet union. So he knew exactly what they had gone through because he had gone through it as well. So the year of the signing of the imf treaty that same year in other words were mister gorbachev and mister. Reagan sat down and signed. It was the same year that president. Reagan took a trip to berlin and he had a new message for the general secretary court. Mister gorbachev tear down this wall unquote in the fall of nineteen eighty nine only months following president. Reagan leaving office. The berlin wall fell in singling out. President reagan and his staff for deserved praise gratitude for pursuing justice and security for america and the world with a wise rugged per perseverance. We don't ignore nor do we excuse the administration shortcomings no prison staff and no individual citizen or group of citizens are without sin. The president's second term brought us among several failures and disappointments a flawed immigration. Fix that on. The one hand mercifully incorrectly provided citizenship. For many but lacking congressional follow-through would not secure our borders and other areas from the entry of undocumented individuals families and larger groups we also endured a disastrous any illegal iran contra debacle causing troubling and embarrassing washington hearings yet too many americans. The reagan administration received. I marks overall for thoughtful based decisions and sense boldness a standard of humility and mutual respect between the president and his chosen staff. That firmly sets them in communion in my view with certain other great administrations in america's tumultuous history a few years later general-secretary gorbachev lost power as part of the ongoing drama of the soviet union breaking apart. Our relations with the new russia began deteriorating. After this loss of gorbachov and the absence of others with the skills goodwill envision to serve the russian people help guide them down a different path from their current course to solid prosperity and good relations with all their neighbors in america. Successive administrations republican and democrat shifted their attention resources to two new major challenges secure. An improved relations with russia ceased being. The top priority had been culturally the roman catholic church and other christians along with many persons of other faiths prayed it long persevered and suffered in their role to free poland and others in eastern europe from brutal soviet domination and oppression that i've already referred to freedom therefore found many of those newly liberated both exhausted and dazed. They lacked the refreshed vision. They lacked the energy and agility to pivot and actively create new bonds of oneness with the russian orthodox brothers and sisters very little exists now that unites east and west..

"The media threat had passed in a nutshell. The soviets had a spy planted in one of the highest levels of natal and this person made the assessment that nothing was going on at the moment that really caused a threat at all to the warsaw pact. He said that all of those who are giving you misinformation are on the edges of access to knowledge. I'm right there in the middle of it. And i'm telling you nothing is being planned Nothing is being practiced constitutes any kind of a real threat to you at this current time so again the media threat passed but when this nation just days later finally got back to the president and his staff. Ronald reagan was astounded that the soviets fears and insecurities head compounded over time and ran so deep that they actually believed nita. Wargames were a cover for launching world war three and again this is is made very starkly evident in the reporting of Mr lee edwards president reagan focus the best minds and experiences of his administration on engaging. This threat during president reagan's first term any american and soviet outreach to one another had been hampered right from the beginning by a quick succession of deaths of aged and ill soviet leaders finally in his second term. The president sense the new and younger soviet general secretary. Mr gorbachev might bring more stability to the kremlin. More importantly prime minister margaret thatcher of the united kingdom. Told the president. She believed after her after her own contacts with mister gorbachev that he was a man the west could do business with far different for mr andropov near the end of his life afflicted by memories of russian war casualties and his own ill health the mutual respect and trust between margaret thatcher and ronald reagan was very strong and that just increased. President reagan's resolved to engage soon with the soviets. He knew he could trust what she said. And that's important. Ronald reagan always put his relationship with our allies in a very high regard. He paid attention to what they said. They paid attention to what he said. And he made actions Come into being oftentimes based on this kind of a relationship. The warsaw pact with russia. The powerhouse of the evil empire had been america's and most of western europe's primary enemy for decades. This threat from the east explained. Explain the need for nato. In the first place and on too many occasions the cold war had nearly turned hot over flashpoints such as the soviet several major attempts to limit or even end the freedoms of west berlin which was long a soft spot in the iron curtain.

"For president during the nineteen primary season. I turned to president reagan and reviewed reasons why i might trust him with my vote and perhaps with much more than my vote. A successful governor of california elected to four year terms. Ronald reagan served a population with economy larger than all but a few sovereign nations. He was a conservative and in a diverse state he was able to work daily with other state officials of every political affiliation and get things done the seemed good to me in his first term as president ronald reagan endured and survived among other events a slow healing economy a nearly successful assassination attempt a disastrous first midterm election for republicans and a bloody costly terrorist suicide bombing of the us marines barracks in lebanon but his personal grit in humor mixed with a relentless civility as he worked with staff in his administration and with members of congress including democratic house. Speaker tip. o'neill this was all transparent to most of washington. Dc and also to our citizens in most of america in november of nineteen eighty-four. The voters in forty nine states renewed their contract with president reagan for another four years. Here in my vote this time for his second term president reagan and his administration late into his first term. We're riveted on somehow bridging. The increasingly dangerous divide between america and the soviet union back during his first term. All of the rhetoric seemed very harsh really on both sides we referred to them as the evil empire because they did have their foot On on the people of eastern europe and They looked at us with great suspicion because when they would take some adventures like going in afghanistan and that we would send money and resources to help those who opposed the soldiers of the soviet union and other events happened the russians a shot down a passenger plane Near korean airspace. it just generally was very harsh time. People were especially worried about nuclear problems. There are many mass demonstrations in parts of europe. Over this concern. The stage was set for some problems in covering to book releases revealing a new. A new danger that added to the existing danger. These book releases were done by mr lee edwards and he expertly shepherds the reader through the hours and days that could have changed ended much of life on earth. This was covered in the wall street. Journal in the book section July twenty eighth twenty ninth two thousand eighteen late in november. Nineteen eighty-three one year. Before his second presidential election. Victory president reagan and his staff learned that just days earlier. The soviets feared a first strike. Look your launch by america. They produce their own plans to strike first beating america in nato to the punch several hair-trigger days played out with only the soviets fully aware of the precarious hold on life itself at stake by a very small margin..

"The worst games of twenty nine thousand nine all right and definitive. This is definitive and we played any of them. You and I have played one of them. Okay Yeah I wonder if I've played any of them I know I haven't I bet which means I did. Good Yeah you chose wisely. That's true we put up an article on this This week the article was very specifically the worst reviewed games and it was based on the metacritic scores. Because the truth is allow. These games idea doesn't even review because if it's a game that no one's ever heard of it's not doing anyone much services say hey here's a game you've never heard of. It's really bad. That's a good way to not very useful information information. But there's some high profile games from high profile Delo developers and publishers like squaring and left alive. Whoa you remember that one? No and it's Square. Kleenex live weight in review. We did that one. Yeah okay so we're only talking about the ones. We reviewed. Okay well there might be one gender Eh. Critics gems Yeah this is actually our lowest score the year three point eight. Wow that's as low as we got got. Yeah that is a rare the score for us. Yeah let's have. Some people were interesting. Because it used the artist that used to work a metal gear so the art was sort of reminiscent of Medicare but Kulik Kulik pinky like kind of style. Yeah Okay in our view. Call The creek creaky and frustratingly broken mix of stealth action. That's just what you want. is frustrating frustrating stealth any game. That's the worst combination possible so three point eight is as low as got. It's been a long time since we've given out like a one. I looked. Yeah I think two thousand and five what was it. It was like Elf bowling but it was ever boy it was elbowing one and two one. One carts yeah. That's really when you what about like bowling was free as like a flash game that you played free. But you'd rather pay for it. You WanNa play on your Nintendo DS. At least a two. If there's two games in their oneplus exact maybe it was one zero or two point five. We were in a meeting where a pair told us there was zero given even out and we said what was it for immediately. Should the name of a hockey game that we've never heard of so. I don't know if it's true or not I want to say I don't know if I want to say it was a an Olympic game it was it was a hockey. We're all right. It's both of them. They re released that year is hockey game and the review is zero and it says when you make a new game will write a new review. Yeah it was just. It was last year's game with new box art which I think happened with Viva this year actually on switch. But that's in their the twenty legacy addition addition for that was a switch version and I Jeans Review. I think it was Simon reviewed. It said this honestly no genuine reason. I could give you to purchase fever. twenty-nine switch if you already own fee for nineteen on switch which we gave it a four and even nineteen was matic. Simon should have given it zero that wouldn't really reserves Zeros for like utterly broken. I can't barely low the game. I'm not confident. Giving his era wouldn't break something on energy. I if I were I would make it my goal to make a game that I would review and give zero two. So how would you so that you can get the Guinness World Record for quickest failure. Well I think the point it would be a lot of copies because it's bad that because we get attention women get attention because it got zero. I'm picking up with SAM. swigging down what. He's saying. Novelty like Munib on twitter. Actually broken game generally ignore Games we get us to review it the slap slap on like marvel on the title thanks Star Wars. And you just can't let expensive license and zero game. Sounds like a really bad journey an evil Virginia's that Evil billionaire genius. And that's exactly what it's been my time doing or if it came from a studio well-known studio that we typically review games from either they can throw all their money away and with crash bandicoot literally crash like it just crash crash. That's the only way to get zero. A Contra game came out this year a new Contra Game Longtime Damon forced me to play we did play it and play. We haven't talked since looks like we're talking to each other right now but I'm actually talking to Tina Justin only Samsung even in the room. It's weird record. Santana San Spread separately. So who do we play. Cj I think to the three players top down Contra game and to be Fair Contra has had top down segments before entre three the alien wars. Yeah but it's just it wasn't didn't feel like a contra game but it was like Okay Schutte top down thing gave it a four. That's not okay okay. It would be a sick Sam but but I didn't review it giving it a sick I play enough to review withhold judgment. It was pretty bad and it's just like honor consciousness in a very sad state of affairs over Konami right now so it's been a long running beloved game series. It hadn't seen a new entering a long time Hammond Hoof. That was not what people want. Can you imagine being the artists digital the metal gear art and then being like I'm out of here and getting your game review as a three point eight or do you think contras a good candidate for getting unlike the God of war style boot like take it very seriously. Lemur cinematography version just like lean into the seriousness of the character and like introspection inspection of his past bill and bringing all sorts bill. That's a good point. It's already a knockoff of Terminator Alien. Yeah so it's like like just maybe those franchises should make a game but I know alien have some pretty good speaking of all that this is a this is a tangent retake a strange corner I I just think new term bombed at the box office new Rambo bombed New Alien bombed last year or two years ago. I just wonder if like that. That's sort of the eighties. Installed your wells. Drying up or nine hundred installs franchises for very cheap and make a game that would get scored as zero journey. The silliest Yes yes exactly yet they did blade runner sadly also later honor which I thought was a good movie credible movie I loved that movie. Okay moving we on bad games worst games.

Why Israeli settlements are an obstacle to peace
"Over the past half century. Israel has built hundreds of settlements or Jewish enclaves on the land it captured from Jordan in the Six Day War of nineteen sixty seven seven. This land claimed by Palestinians for their future state which is why settlements are seen by many as an obstacle to peace the president of over four hundred thousand Israeli settlers living in the West Bank basically means that a Palestinian state cannot come into being is our Israel correspondent respondent Mason Jerusalem. Many of those settlements are stuck in between the main Estonian cities and towns so contiguous state cannot exist as long as they're there and their presence also means that it was obvious that so in effect they ensure that the military occupation of the Westbank continues the the announcement came just ahead of a key date in Israel. Today is the deadline for opposition leader. Benny Ganz to build coalition bowling. September's inconclusive election Prime Minister Benjamin. Netanyahu has already failed to form a government. Both candidates praised the trump administration's change in policy but the decision was America at odds with much of the international community. The international consensus regarding the settlements has been there in contravention of the full Geneva Convention. Attention which basically says that transfer or settlement of an occupied territory by the occupying power is against international law. And that's been the interpretation Shen of the Geneva Convention regarding Israeli settlements by most of the leading legal experts. There are some dissenting views of. Israel clings to those dissenting ending views in building the settlements. But that's been the broad consensus for decades now and so in that sense Mike Pompeo's announcement came as something of surprise. Well the competitive management didn't come as a surprise because certain elements within the administration were very pro Israel and pro the settlement lobby chief among them the US ambassador to Israel. Israel David Friedman who before becoming a master was both trump's bankruptcy la and financial backer of the settlements. They have been trying for the past three years to get a clear statement out of the administration saying that American doesn't see the settlements as being illegal and it has to be noted that in the past also the Reagan administration. Distraction made similar statements. So it hasn't always been one hundred percent clear what the American position on this has been. US public statements on settlement activities. In the West Bank have been inconsistent over decades in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight. The Carter Administration categorically concluded that Israel's establishment of civilian settlements was inconsistent with international law. However in Nineteen eighty-one president? Reagan disagreed with that conclusion. And stated that he didn't believe that the settlements were inherently l.. Legal actually most of the American administration's haven't even talked about the legality. They've called the settlements an obstacle to peace instead of diving into this rather controversial legal question so in a sense this kind of puts a finer point on kind of formalizes. Something that from the American standpoint had been kind of informally the case. What has been the case over the past three years? Because the trump administration had been very ambivalent towards the Israeli settlement activity previous administrations had condemned settlements especially the first Bush administration tried to limit funding to Israel while the tantamount building was going on the trump administration and some of its representatives have been much more friendly towards the past two years. The trump administration has made a series of statements and actions regarding the Israel Palestine conflict back in December seventeen nineteen. They announced that they recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital that in a few minutes later move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. A few months ago we had the recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights. And in between these. We've had a number of steps. Was the Palestinians. We had cutting off of aid various Palestinian agencies to the United Nations nations agency which works with Palestinian refugees the closure of the Palestinian mission in Washington. All these things have put out a very clear signal where the trump administration restauration stands in the conflict. And even the timing of this announcement just a couple of days before the deadline for Bennigan's to form a government. Do you think it's connected to the current political the turmoil in Israel not directly connected to the current political situation for two reasons festival. It hasn't been times as some of the previous gestures were to help Out On the eve of an election other convenient junctures it doesn't seem to have been closely coordinating with Israeli government. That seems to have been something. which was it was very much an internal decision of administration? And do you think it's significant that it was Mr Pompeo who made the announcement. Well that's probably more about American politics in parents trying to show that he's not trump in many ways and loyal to some of trump's closest advisers. I think pump is also looking beyond the horizon of the trump trump administration and shoring up his own political bias. Perhaps his own run for the White House and this is a popular move among voters who he would also be relying upon one day if he runs for the candidacy and for the White House himself and now that Mr Pompeo has made this policy reversal. What do you think the immediate impact will be the speaking? Both Israeli officials Palestinians. No one's expecting an immediate impact even though they've been promises by Netanya before the last two election campaigns of going even further annexing parts of the West Bank. All those plans on hold because it doesn't a political deadlock there's no coalition in Israel. We have Netanyahu position bet against both failing instigate a majority Israel has been building settlements or the past fifty years regardless of what the administration positions being and on the Palestinian side. They've lost lost hope in anything. Good for them coming out. The trump administration long ago so for that. This wasn't a surprise. And they're facing their daily challenges whatever someone is saying in Washington it material to them but what about the prospects for grander scale change for the notion of annexation or in the other direction a meaningful peace process so the impact is perhaps lung It won't change anything the next few weeks and months. But when finally new government is formed in Israel. If it's a right wing government then the impetus to go ahead and AMEX parts. What's the West Bank will increase? Because now they seem to have a green light from the administration and even if the new government will be more central government under Benny Gansel some other interests lita. Yep It'll be much more difficult for them to justify so these ready public making any kind of changes on the ground baptists manning so because people will say them but the Americans okay so why make any of these changes if the settlements especially the ones which are deep within the West Bank or allowed to continue to grow that means the majority patient won't end either and any prospect of Palestinian statehood will be non-existent loop Israel basically in charge of one st with millions of Palestinians without optical rights and that's not the democratic say that Israel claims and takes pride in being so it's a situation which really is ready to have a solution Lucien right now and if anything compare announcement has made a solution for that even more remote
Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall
"Reagan today a tribute to the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall it's on a site overlooking the location where president Reagan delivered his legendary speech imploring Mister Gorbachev tear down this wall well that was quite a memory anyway we have our Westwood One news correspondent jazz Henry standing by live in Berlin this morning so jazz good morning to you are actually good afternoon to you or early it's about it's about mid day right now and that was nineteen eighty seven the president Reagan made that speech at the Brandenburg gate two years later not necessarily a direct cause and effect a correlation but two years later the walking down we celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of that to your tomorrow so it would that was a big big celebration the whole world celebrated with the with the German people when that happened but you know then they came to review the reality of reuniting east and West Germany and integrating them into the society of Europe so she was very celebratory van what's it like now sh well people are still happy particularly those who were alive at the time they can contrast what East Germany was like at the time and what it's like now but there a lot of people been born since then and some of them living in the eastern parts of Germany I feel that still yet today the economy is not as vibrant in that part of the country job opportunities perhaps educational opportunities don't match what's that exists in the west some people in the government here are admitting that there were some mistakes made when that they actually unified the east was just sort of brought into the western constitution there's some other things that might have been done differently but say it's hard to completely second gas because compared to many countries around the world be Germany has in you know what might seem a long time were short time depending on your view thirty years brought about quite to impress the reunification so are we listen to your montage that you made for us just a couple of minutes ago and at the end the woman was saying that the people in the east still don't feel I guess equal economically you know to the west is did you find that I've talked to some of people living in the eastern part of the country who formerly lived under the the old government and of course they say you know life is better now that we can travel you know we're not so contained and there's not be a network but foreman's that's one has to worry about the Stasi security service keeping an eye on everyone but they said that in the old west and East Germany there was sort of a collective mindset and neighborhood mindset that it was sort of grew from the better aspects of the communist ideal of people helping each other they say when they became in essence taken over by the west that said you know the capitalist system of every person out for themselves doggy dog what was hard to get used to and a lot of people particularly were sort of mid career at that time had a hard time making the jump of the sort that angle Americal has made a force you she's been chancellor here for fourteen years originally an east German but she's really more the exception than the rule in how well easterners have done but there are signs that slowly the economy salaries and such in the east are improving to up Terry T. with the west but that's still not the case chancellor Merkel of course open wide the the doors of Germany to refugees and a lot of them ended up in Berlin and we have young people the young workers coming from all across Europe in into Berlin so what are the company's able to hire them well they they into at both related and many of them into the eastern part of Germany someone in the in the western parts but she needs to Germany because of the period under communism they didn't become as multicultural as West Germany did West Germany brought in the guest workers from Turkey for instance in the nineteen seventies and so in the east there are people who are feeling you know I should be paid more for the work that I do there should be better opportunities and look there these people who don't look like me being brought into our city to be settled yeah they're probably going to compete for the same jobs and that's led to some dissatisfaction three mentioned the the unveiling or the showing of the statue of Ronald Reagan today what other kinds of celebrations are being planned well there's a big party is scheduled for tomorrow evening at the Brandenburg gate course the Brandenburg gate is where president Kennedy spoke in nineteen sixty three or call each bin ein Berliner speech president Reagan as we mentioned in nineteen eighty seven it's been the center of the city sense the eighteen hundreds of sort of ceremonial center so there will be a big concert there now there's some possibility it might be raining so that I could have it have an impact but as you can imagine that since this is Germany there'll be classical music and this is the evening wears on there will be a lot of like trying to dance music but if everyone were looking to see what sort of crowd might come out for that tree even putting the weather aside but I'm guessing it's probably a larger major going to be an older crowd people who remember the it's just the amazement of what happened November ninth nineteen eighty nine so we still have a lot of American troops in Germany and course all around Europe but in in Germany so are they are they showing up for either out in the streets for this I'm not seen any so far interestingly I was at a government events government sponsored event last night and the culture minister of Germany made up points to talk about how appreciative Germany in particular Germans of of her age work for the American support immediately after the wall fell and it came as a surprise to many people what happened afterward it might have been something short of reunification she said she was saying that they could be some sort of confederation or alliance but she said that president George H. W. bush was

Republicans slam Trump over withdrawal of troops from Syria
"Has the president is just getting you're always taking fire from all sides here this morning and this has to do what I wanna make sure we college member we've got troops in in Syria troops there there were helped to stabilize the situation is we were trying to find fight and defeat ISIS and I think as successfully decimated them you're never going to defeat the ideology but you know we did win this battle no question about that we're talking about fifty troops that's it the present is moving fifty troops within Syria not out of the country but just out of the northern border there were the Turks plan on the going in and taking care of some of their business for whatever reason the president saying look this is a campaign promise and this is something and it's just amazing me the president is getting hammered for pulling troops out of harm's way one second we get to a hundred percent now I get to a hundred percent then they say well maybe we could stay longer too well when do we get out is going to be a time we get it we have to bring our people by phone yeah and again this was supposed to be a short term hit maybe about sixty to ninety days it has now lasted for years and the president doesn't want mission creep like we've seen in Afghanistan like we've seen elsewhere get in get the job done get out I will get the courage here in just a second because that would be my only concern but I think the president can adequately address that Lindsey Graham of courses warning here comes the third World War this is going to lead to the re emergence of isis and the biggest one of all this will be the Iranians in as to that when you've got Democrats and Republicans in agreement and disagreement over this senator Mike Lee says we should be thanking president trump it should not be any more difficult for a president to take us out of a war zone it is for him to get us into a war zone what we really ought to be thanking him for doing this we should be thank you for keeping his campaign promise something other presidents all the politicians of of failed to do senator Ron Paul agrees with president trump I think president trump recognizes what president Reagan recognized unfortunately to lighten Beirut leaving three or four hundred people in an area that are vulnerable could lead to catastrophe but also doesn't really do anything to secure our national security you know I'm kind of the bleed goes big go big or go home you know two or three hundred people are just a trip wire to get is drawn into something and a tragedy probably so again we're talking about fifty troops of that's it and according to a Pentagon official called this does not constitute a withdrawal from Syria we're talking about a small number of troops that will move to other bases with in Syria once again manufactured outrage even on the part of US senator Lindsey Graham Nikki Haley's come out we'll hear from Meghan McCain she went on on on his moment yesterday on the on the view Benghazi sue will be with us here shortly we'll talk about her as says sing along with Mitch is opposed and I get a look at the biggest concern I I mention this yesterday what were the courage the courage to help those those who fight in Iraq the fight against Iran the fight against ISIS the Kurds understand the enemy being radical Islam so they fought with us they have shed blood with us as our allies and you don't want to hang out to dry and president trump has warned order one you know be careful with our troops be careful with the Kurds and the president on Monday defending this decision so he will quote totally destroyed I'm a liberal obliterate Turkey's economy if it does anything off limits in Syria including going after the courage that was my only concern is in these people who fought with us as our allies you wanna make sure that you know you you take care of them but here this is this is Much Ado About Nothing front with over fifty troops being moved within the country this is an thousands and thousands of troops on I can't imagine the reaction is within when we but we pull out of Afghanistan for good well the based meal basically will of the fear was is that Turkey was going to invade Syria and at the same time maybe a slaughter the Kurds are friends and the president has basically laid down the gauntlet as to what would happen if Turkey did such a thing there would be huge results that the that the the you know including sanctions and things of that nature that up and in fact maybe even pushing for Turkey out of the out of the NATO alliance there are a number of different things that the president wants that you know would do if if Turkey did it eventually try you know to invade Syria and and tried to annihilate the the Kurds now what and again though they are dead or alive that was an interesting chain and we knew the reason the reason why we need that the Incirlik airforce base there that is a key player in the in the Middle East but the again I'm sure the president any cities that comments are conversations with the receiver to on the Turkish president I understand that the again you leave our troops alone and you make sure that you're not going on there taken taken out the Kurds and it's all it's all for fun that being said this this is total over reaction we got more of a
