"But when you step back and when you actually look at the facts, when you look at the numbers, you realize, well, wait a second. Yet these are horrible, terrible, tragedies.

I mean, that's kind of obvious. I mean, background checks are good and waiting periods are good. I mean, I think there's too many guns in America. The climate of the country right now is not good and it's not good to have so many guns. And coming from you, that's quite a statement. Well, I hope it is. Give us the way I feel.

And she literally was almost bursting into tears as she was reading it. And your dad had that kind of an impact on people, which is almost unthinkable in politics today. Is it just because it was a different era or do you think there was something about your dad that brought out that kind of a deeply resonant response in people? Because it was in his heart. It wasn't just a speech, it was actually in his heart. And you know, I tell politicians who asked me about my father. I said, it's not about hearing your speech. It's about feeling your speech. And with my father's speeches, you really felt them. That's why you can listen today to the point to hot speech and you will cry at the right time.

Last spring break, I went on a trip with a hundred other Harvard undergraduates to Israel. It was one of the most extraordinary experiences of my life, and I will always be grateful to Harvard for that. I recalled the trip with awe and joy, but a certain moment rattled me. Our group attended a Shabbat dinner at a Tel Aviv synagogue. The rabbi proclaimed, welcome to Israel. You are all here from America, the best country in the world. He paused.

"And wherever you are taxes loom large for all investors What do tax rates mean for how much we invest What do they mean for when we invest And for that matter when we cash out And how does the structure of the tax code affect where we invest Grover norquist has devoted his career to addressing questions just like these He is the founder and president of Americans for tax reform That's an organization that president Ronald Reagan urged him to start back in 1985 So Grover thank you so much for joining us Really appreciate it You are the man on taxes And let me ask you going all the way back to 1985 when I look at the percentage of federal revenues as a percentage of GDP through that period of time It is not going up even from the days of Ronald Reagan Have you succeeded Should you declare a victory Well yes in the sense that the goal is to have the government take less of people's resources and allow them to have more creative and more liberty and to have businesses invest based on what's a good investment not what tax policies are So I'm happy that we've stopped we've taken the rates down dramatically Remember to operate with 70% when Reagan walked in the door It got down as low as 28% unfortunately bush let that back up But there's more to be done at the national level The reduction of the corporate income tax that the Republicans did in 2017 made us more competitive with China The danger with the tax increase one of the tax increases that Biden is looking at taking the top rate to 28 Corporate rate the corporate that would put it up higher than China higher than anyone we compete with in Europe When we were at 21 we were much more competitive We are a 21 now But if we go back up to 28 and you have to add most states have a state corporate income tax we become very uncompetitive with China Japan Europe Of course as you know better than I it's not just the marginal rate that counts It's the total tax burden And if you look at OECD countries in fact they have vat taxes other taxes they pay And there's a Peterson institute study that actually says we're at the bottom of the pack when it comes to OECD countries the competitors What do you say about those numbers Well we have less spending less taxation as a percentage of our income as a percentage of our assets which is good That's why we've historically grown faster than Europe That's why we're the GDP is stronger in the United States per CAPiTA than other places The value added tax that they have in Europe is how they got government bigger There's a certain point at which you can't get any more blood out of the turnip with individual tax rates both on companies and on individuals We're probably above that point now But the Europeans have decided you can increase the size of the government with a value added tax which is in some cases 21 25% in Europe It's a sales tax at all levels of production And that's one of the ideas that some in America have why don't we have a carbon tax which would then become the vat tax that would look like Europe And I guess my argument is if you want to see innovation growth job creation you don't want to look like Europe Is there a right number for the percentage GDP that should be taxed I mean there's something called Hauser's law that I've read about that says basically no matter what the marginal rate is in the United States going back to 1945 we come up with some between 17 and 20% right now I think we're about 17.9% Is there a right number I think you find that out by bringing it down and seeing it get you more growth You certainly saw when Coolidge cut tax rates you saw strong economic growth until Hoover raised them And then when John F. Kennedy cut marginal tax rates you had strong growth until Nixon raised taxes And with Reagan you have this strong growth until Bush And then Clinton raised taxes So it's we've been getting towards a point which maximize revenue I'm not sure maximizing revenue is the key I'd like to maximize growth and job creation and innovation certainly we learn a lot from the states There are 50 states 8 of them have no personal income tax at all And they tend to be doing better than other states People move to Texas and Tennessee and Washington state and Florida And now there are another 8 states that have single rate taxes So even Democrat or progressive states like Massachusetts and Illinois have lower income tax rates on individuals 5% in Massachusetts about 4% in Illinois because it's a flat rate tax and that's difficult for politicians to raise easier to reduce But they're now 8 states that have income taxes that are phasing those out You just saw the vote in Georgia to begin phasing out the income tax to zero Mississippi has done the same thing Louisiana did last year Iowa top rate individuals 6 and a half down to a 4% under 4% flat rate with the goal of then taking it down to zero It's awfully hard to have a meaningful discussion on taxes without talking to Grover norquist Grover thank you so much for your time today That's Grover norquist Thank you President and founder of Americans for tax reform Coming.

That their surrender will be voluntary. And he had you just wrote a book about this pervasive anti American work movement that is in full control of the Democrats and academia and the press and even the senior levels of the military.

"York. I am rich Valdas Val desk with an S at Ridge fouled us on all social media, and I am filling in for America's Mayor, Rudy Giuliani. And evil is powerless if the good are unafraid, That's President Ronald Reagan. Evil is powerless. If the good are unafraid, President Reagan had a lot of wisdom and I think it's real important that we notice what's going on. But I want to let you before we jump right in. I wanna invite you to give us a call Joined the program. 1 808 48 92 22 1 808 48 W A. B C. Where is it? That the left wing of the Democrat Party wants to take America? What is it that AOC wants to do with our country? Allowed crazy. They say. We have to the fund, the police Then we heard Biden say no, No, We're not talking about the funding the police. I played that for you last night. Maybe I'll play it again later. He says. No, no, no. We have to call it. Police reform. And then She goes, and she always has. Said. Abolish ice. She's a complete radical. And she doesn't want to hide it. And she's really put it out there. So the question is, Where is it that the radicals want to take America now the only difference between the radicals and the quote unquote moderates. Like Biden. Is that she's being honest. And putting it all out there. She's saying she's a Marxist. She's saying she's a socialist Democrat. Democrat Socialist And he likes to say otherwise. It's a sad day when you're When you're next to you see? And you're the disingenuous one. But that's who Joe Biden is. That's where he is. They want to change America for the worst. And they want to do it forever. This is horrible. You look around New York City. You got street vendors that are going on a business all over the place. Guys that once had a thriving businesses. They have no more customers because people don't go to work anymore. Doorman and buildings are seeing Tennant after tenant flee the building, Manhattan's becoming a ghost town. All in the name of covert on the name of leftism all in the name of Marxism. This is what the Democrats socialist want. Kill the man. Kill whitey. Kill success kill capitalism. And here we are. Having fun yet. Absolutely horrible. What's going on? 808 48 W A B c 108 48 w A B C So you see, she took to Instagram live yesterday to respond to some of her critics saying she's going to give a shout out to her fellow radicals who think that we shouldn't live in racist systems. I'm gonna play that in a second. It's a short clip. But It to me. It sounds like what Al Sharpton had to say We could play that also later where he's talking about. This is racist or what joy Reid said that it was racist for Texas to try and defend itself. In the Supreme Court. The point. I bring all of this together because it's always the same story from the left. It's always the same story from the right too. If you want to call us the right I like to think that we're just the middle, but You know those that love America those that believe in the Constitution. I think that should be the basis of all of us. And from there, you want to go one way or another, That's fine. But I think that with one place that we should agree Is that we love America because I think you either love America or you don't. Sadly. You've got this entire movement that says all we want to love America, but the America that we're going to recreate We're going to love the America. That's a utopia. We're gonna love the America that doesn't stand for racism That doesn't do this. That doesn't do that. The America that we change and mold and make valuable and turn into something that is not America. America where we use capitalism to get what we want and then ditch it. To create oligarchs. That's the America that they want. When they don't like something fell insult you. The call you racist and we're gonna play a little bit of Sharpton. But right now, I want you to listen to My favorite congresswoman from the 14th district. The Bronx and Queens. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez AOC All are crazy. Check this out. Shout out to my fellow radicals who think that you know we should live in a humane advanced society. On Dat. We shouldn't be under the sum of a $7 minimum wage and, you know, racist systems. Because I don't know, because I just benefits whoever the people are empowered already be in power, so you know Shout out to my radicals. Shout out to my radicals. Well, I also want to give a shout out to my radicals, all of you radical patriots out there that are saying, You know what? I love America and you can't keep a good man down. I'm gonna rise up. I am going to do what has to be done to make sure that I take back my city Hall's I take back the local courts that I take back whatever layer of government affects you. And you have an interest in getting involved in get involved in it and do something to fight. If it takes you three elections to win, Then it takes you three. If it takes you four. It takes you for If you could score like AOC and run once and take out Joe Crowley. God bless you. But the point is, you've got to do it. You've got to start organizing. You've got to get involved. People always saying Oh, what is it that I can do? What is it that I could do? This is what you conduce take take a page from her playbook. She goes, and she talks she connects with people. She makes relationships. She shares her thoughts. She's giving shout outs to her fellow radicals, and she's she's doing the tongue in cheek. But the point is, people are like word.

"Be hospitalized while in office. The most dramatic in recent memory. President Ronald Reagan after the assassination attempt on him in 1981 confirmed the statements. That the president was shot once in the left side this afternoon as he left the House hotel assistant to the President, David Gergen had some clarifying to do after initial reports that the president had not been harmed. That's forward to 2002 and the detailed timeline offered by then White House spokesman Ari Fleischer after President George W. Bush had a colonoscopy. Transferring power to Vice President Cheney before having anesthesia procedure was concluded at 7:29 A.m. and the president awoke. 7:31 A.m. power of the presidency was returned to President Bush at 9 24 this morning. But President Trump's hospitalization is unique for a number of reasons, including the timing on Ly a month to election day. There's not a president in an election year who's gotten ill and gone to the hospital, especially, you know, with with the pandemic sickness. This's really rare. It's just done President. We've never seen this combination before. Jane Hampton Cook is a presidential historian, former staffer for George W. Bush and author of the book Resilience On Parade. The closest I Could Find Or taking pieces of different presidents. So you know there was there was Dwight Eisenhower. Got sick in his re election year in June of 1956 months before November, and he was in the hospital for three weeks and people were concerned and they were whispering. You know if you're going to stay on the ticket, and he did on by November was fine on DH. So then you have Woodrow both. Then who Supposedly got the Penis glue in 1919, but he was not for reelection. He was in a second term and you know they didn't even have a test first Danish blue so we can't 100% confirmed that he had it. Even though the press was saying he merrily missed getting blue, those with headlines, and so there's just why this is so unique position of bearing unique circumstance. Now I know the 25th amendment on transferring power is still relatively new, and I want to get to how and why. That came about in a moment, But I wanted to know first. What the founding fathers include a plan for a sick president. Do we know Well, I think that they thought, you know back then they didn't. They set out these four year terms. But there was a cultural expectation that George Washington would serve until he died, and I think they assumed it was strong enough. The Constitution was strong enough that the vice president would take over. But when that actually happened for the first time in the 18 forties one William Henry Harrison, the president died 32 days. Office on John Tyler took over and they considered him an acting president and there was a lot of fight over his legitimacy. And so it was that many fast forward Tio 19 sixties after Kennedy's assassination and Eisenhower's illnesses. The Congress thought we need to be clearer. Not just device president takes over, but you know a plan for transferring power. If there is no and incapacitation of the president, they were thinking more detailed, and we were in the middle of the Cold War to so there was a concern of a catastrophic in a nuclear attack kind of situation so the founders just couldn't envision. You know, all that we have been through is a country in the past 240 plus years so since that 25th amendment was created, is it unusual for a president to be ill with something potentially deadly and not transfer power even has a precaution. I mean, what's the tipping point for it? Do you know? How has it been used? How many times Well, it's been used, You know for people when President George W. Bush underwent a procedure and he knew he was going under anesthesia, then he transfer that power to the vice President, Vice President Cheney, who was acting president until until President Bush was back and you know, out of Anesthesia and, you know, functioning. There has been used very sparingly and kind of surgical precise kind of conditions. I think you know is President Trump had gone on a ventilator. Um, you know, and had been in that kind of incapacitation, then I think they would have had to have invoked 25th amendment into an acting capacity. What happened? With all of this when President Reagan was shot So when President Reagan was shot, you know that was obviously It has sent shock waves through the White House, and they know there was a question you know, with al Haig, one of the cabinet secretaries who indicate that he was in charge. And I think that that confused people whether or not he was invoking the 25th amendment has really that authority belong Teo, the vice president by President Bush at the time, but sometimes you just sort of fog of war. Almost if you will, a fog of confusion that it takes a little bit of time to sift through when you do have the assassination attempt. You know Ronald Reagan and obviously Reagan Wass, Um You know, he went through surgery. He was a very close call for him that he survived. And so it was Ted in those those few hours and a few days until it was clear that he is going to make pull through. We're also in the middle of the Cold War at that time, which raises questions too about you know if you're not going to tell absolutely everything about the president's condition, condition How do you weigh? Is it when the when that type of decision is made not to disclose everything to the public? You know how much is about optics or politics? Or is there a legitimate national security concerns? Right. You're trying, Teo. You've got away being transparent with the public. But when you're transparent with the public, you're also transparent with it with America's enemies, Right, So there's that balance of showing confidence. But office showing in Terry of what of what is actually transfer transit forming what? I looked back at the newspaper coverage the day that the day after Eisenhower was sent to the hospital, and I was amazed. Help transparent or there were newspaper articles about what he ate for dinner the night before, because he had an intestinal problem. There was, um, a kick talk of the timeline of exactly you know of the decision making to send into the hospital. They said. He got milk of magnesia at a certain time, and then they made this decision. And then they made this decision. There was quite a bit of transparency with President Eisenhower that immediately. After he was sent to the hospital, and he would sit in a rather undignified way in it. I mean, in a dignified way, but he was sent in his P J stand pajamas. In a non ambulance to Walter Reed. So it's quite a much more dramatic sending. Then you know, taking President Trump the Marine one. He's wearing a suit. He had a little different. I think that that was a calming down. Visual to show he was still, you know he had fever. He wasn't incapacitated elsewhere in D. C. If you will at the capital, for instance, because in this case they're talking about, you know, kissing on with confirmation hearings, the Supreme Court nominee still holding negotiations, at least by phone over a possible stimulus bill. If, when Eisenhower was sick when Reagan was shot, at least after the initial shock wear off more off, maybe was it business as usual for Washington, D C. No, it seems to be and when I've noticed in the Eisenhower articles is that there were the immediate on that coverage The day after the Capitol Hill was saying, We're not going to do anything to take advantage of the situation. We're going to be respectful of the president on the opposition party was the Democratic Party, and there was a clear statement of We're not going Tio use this politically going to focus on the health of the president. In Reagan's case, Reagan was making calls while he was recovering in the hospital and then at the White House to members of Congress about his economic plan because that was the big controversial thing was that we're his tax cut plans, and he was making phone calls to members of Congress from the hospital once he was stable. That since business as usual, continued, it was done from a phone..

May God bless and protect the Gulf states in the path of the hurricane. May God bless our troops and may God continue to bless this incredible country. We've been hearing from Laura Trump as she is President Trump's daughter in law, the wife of Erik, and she's been sounding familiar themes from this evening both Aah! Warranting the character of President Trump is a warm and caring person will also warning of the dangers that they say will ensue. If the Democrats come back to power. We're going to go backto Juana Summers, politics reporter 11 of Summers and, you know, we're reminded that we're actually following a number of stories tonight. Wanna it's the Republican National Convention is certainly a major political event. But there is also a major hurricane, a Category four hurricane, which is threatening the coast of Louisiana and Texas, and also there is a significant of boycott tonight by major sports teams. Can you just tell us a little bit more about sort of the context in which this convention is taking place? Yes. So as we pointed out earlier in the night, and the majority of these speeches have been taped previously. So you're not hearing speakers respond to what's going on in the background. Lara Trump speech actually was one of the first mentions. We heard about Hurricane Laura, which is closing in on the Northwest Gulf Coast and where we're expecting to see catastrophic storm surges. Perhaps, But then there's also protest in uprising around the shooting of Jacob Blake and Kenosha, Wisconsin. In the last few hours, we have seen professional sports really come to a halt as players from the N B A at the W. N B A Major League Baseball and Major League Soccer Postponing games hockey has recognized this as well. So we're seeing a very a big cultural moment here. Happening in the back drop of this will be curious to see when Vice President Mike Pence speaks tonight in Baltimore, whether and how he will address kind of the backdrop that we're seeing in societal context. I think Americans have their focus in a lot of places now. And of course, we can't forget that we're still weathering our way through a pandemic that has killed more than 170,000 Americans..

"The scientists see the paper as the first in a series over the next couple of months they plan to put out advice on contact tracing serology an antibody tests and data management. Donald Trump said yesterday that Russian violations. Make it untenable for the US to stay in a treaty that permits thirty plus nations to conduct observation flights over each other's territory trump's announcement comes as the US begins new nuclear control. Talks with the Kremlin aimed at replacing an expiring weapons treaty with a modern and potentially three way accord that brings China into the fold senior administration officials say trump's willingness to leave the open skies treaty is evidence of how prominently arms control. Verification and compliance will feature in the new talks the open skies treaty that governs the unarmed overflights was initially set up to promote trust and divert conflict between the US and Russia. The trump administration informed other members of the treaty that the US plans to pull out in six months which is after the presidential election. The White House also says that imagery collected during the flights can be obtained quickly at less cost from US or commercial satellites the US announcement that it plans to leave. The treaty is expected to upset some members of Congress and European allies which benefit from the imagery collected by open skies flights conducted by the US trump last year pulled out of a nineteen eighty-seven nuclear arms treaty with Russia.

What happens if Uncle Sam goes home?

"Support for Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders indicates more and more. Americans are questioning the nation's role as global leader. But what happens if Washington Jettison? Us alliances and ended the Ford Presence of U. S. forces according to Thomas wrought in the Lightest Foreign Affairs magazine. That's a distinguished New York based journal a strategy of Retrenchment. He argues would among other things. Destabilize the regional security orders about Europe and Asia increase the risks of nuclear proliferation and aggravate the threat of major power conflict. The foreign affairs article is cold. The folly retrenchment. Why America can't withdraw from the world? The author Thomas Rod is director of the Center for the United States and Europe at the Brookings Institution and is affiliated as Nonresident Fellow with the Lowy Institute in Sydney. He's based in Washington. Hi there Tom Hi Tom. It's great to be Richard and join us in cine studio. Is Doug Bandow? He's a senior fellow at the Cato Institute also in Washington a former special assistant to President Ronald Reagan and this she's scholar in residence at the Center for Independent Studies. That's a Sydney based think tank that I had welcome back. I glad to be on Tom. Tom Why do you still support a foreign policy? Strategy that Yusei quote has served the US. Whoa for decades. Well I think that the you know the. Us has had a critical role to play in Europe and in Asia since the end of our two and then after the Cold War And I think it really has worked. You know it's it's created sort of stable open and prosperous regional orders. I think if the US was to withdraw from those regions those orders will be at jeopardize some. We'd see all sorts of negative effects and I think as we look at American farm policy. Be Up to distinguish between some of the conflicts in Afghanistan and elsewhere that might make sense to to to pull back from or to to to end and the more broad sort of American commitment to international security. And I'm sort of worry that we might throw the baby out with about water in this when we talk about you know how engaged the US should be in the world but your critics would say that the US has over extended itself Particularly in nations. That don't directly affect the American national interests. I think of Afghanistan Iraq Libya many people would say strategic disaster after strategic disaster. Doesn't that undermine the case for? Us Global leadership role. Well I think that we can. We can debate the merits of of each of those and certainly in Afghanistan. Icee in the piece that it's time to end the the Board Air. I think Iraq is a sort of a tricky case because there needs to be some sort of a small presence to prevent the resurgence of Isis. And but the main point of the piece actually is that the US has not overextended in Europe and Asia. So all those cases you mentioned are sort of the Greater Middle East right there nod And Not in Europe not in Asia and I think the strategy in those two regions is basically working has worked quite well and so I don't really see the evidence of an over extension in either of those two places over extension dot band. I think we're clearly overextended. The problem is it's going to get worse. You look financially at the United States. It has a trillion dollar annual deficit for the foreseeable future without a financial crisis. Those numbers will get worse of the entitlements. Is the elderly retire? The question is how one maintains globe spanning military capable of trying to contain nations along their borders essentially everywhere and also fund other commitments. I think is going to put enormous pressure on the US budget. And I think what we see today is basically an overhang of a policy. It's inertia for policy that worked well in terms of containing the Soviet Union but doesn't make much sense when it comes to Russia and a policy that in East Asia's very complicated China's strikes me as being the major problem that we face but it makes no sense to extend ourselves everywhere for primarily concerned about China. I kept isn't a US. Pullback from Asia and Europe want that be more likely to embolden regional powers like China and Russia. I don't view Russia's being particularly strong power the stage Russia doesn't dominate Europe the way the Soviet Union threatened do so Russia doesn't have anywhere close to the relative strength towards Europe that China does Europe strikes me as being a very good example of where history suggests we should change policy changing circumstances. Meena change the policy now argue frankly. Us policy's been destabilizing. American policy towards Russia in terms of NATO expansion involvement in Ukraine and Georgia has actually provoked the Russians and has created greater problems there and argue greater threats than an alternative policy. Would Have Tom Rock. Well I guess I would sort of ask Doug if you pull of NATO or reduce the US commitment to troops in the to to the countries in the Baltics Eastern Central Europe. I mean I see the presence there as having a deterrent effect. In that if we didn't have NATO Basically have Russian incursions into those countries in greater instability. I also think NATO helps to sort of try to slow the rise of authoritarian intimate some of those countries. We have big problems in Hungary and elsewhere. I think if NATO was to disband pullback those problems get worse than that. We need to be more focused. On Democracy. In those countries that are currently in the NATO Blah if as the retentions argue the US should basically withdraw from NATO or weedy ended started military. An present there that will have significant negative consequences in another part of Tom. Wright's thesis in his Foreign Affairs as I dug Bandau is that. Us retrenchment leads to nuclear proliferation that is US allies. No longer protected by uncle. Sam would be tempted to acquire nuclear weapons of their own. Why Co that danger Doug Bandow? Everything's relative here. Sometimes you live in a world with bad choices so if the question is to the United States forever defend lots of allies being willing to sacrifice American cities to defend them or should they have nuclear capabilities. Themselves it's not so clear to me. That proliferation is such a bad thing. It's not a good thing but the question is does. The United wanted to risk Los Angeles to protect Taipei and Sydney and Seoul and Tokyo should the US be prepared to risk. You know. The United States still cities and dealing with Russia when in fact already Britain and France have nuclear weapons. Perhaps the European Union are some European defense for should also have nuclear capabilities. I don't think that it's a good alternative. On the other hand the assumption undebated you know kind of unconsidered. I think that. Us should of course maintain this Really starts falling apart especially in Northeast Asia if North Korea possesses missiles capable of hitting the United States and targeting American cities doesn't make any sense for the United States to be prepared to go to war on the Korean Peninsula. What risks are at stake? What interests are at stake? I look at that and say this really is at point to argue that. Maybe we need to reconsider. Who has want Tom Rod on that note? How would you respond to Doug? Bangles question does the. Us wants to risk of Los Angeles to protect Taiwan. Yeah I just. I just think it's really. You know in the exaggerated concern. I mean this is a very real concern. At the height of the Cold War there was a problem. Extended deterrence you know. Obviously there was a number of Said's and brinksmanship but since the Cold War the US has been able to deter Russia in Europe and Saudi. Different way you know actors in Asia what I going to the brink of a global crisis and You know that would precipitate nuclear war. Hasn't we haven't seen that pattern of crises in the last three decades so The evidence would suggest that deterrence in Europe is fairly stable. I came guests. Doug band out from Kite. When Thomas Rod from Brookings? Both prominent washington-based think tanks. And we're dividing. Tom's lightest site in Foreign Affairs magazine. The folly of retrenchment. Why America can't withdraw from the world before we turn to Australia's neighborhood in is Doug. I just want to put it back to you on this question of pulling America out of certain regions. Say the Middle East if the US pulls out of Iraq and Syria a want you just invite those suny jihadist or even the Shia militias to fill the void while they're already there. I mean the reason. Shia militias are active in Iraq is because we blew it up. I mean the notion that America promotes stability in the Middle East. I think is a fantasy the? Us helped blow up Libya now. We created the precedent that if you're dumb enough to give up your nuclear weapons and missiles we take you out who what dictator wants to follow more Merck Offi. I think the the Iraq circumstance you cannot complain about Iranian involvement there when we took out the anti Iranian dictator. So I don't see us as being able to promote relative stability in Iraq in twenty eleven when Obama Administration withdrew. Us troops that created a vacuum for those Sunni. Jihadists non-islamic stunned. I mean th this. As soon as you hottest were active. The reason we have al-Qaeda's it was created al Qaeda in Iraq which transmuted into Isis Obama pulled out following the George W Bush plan Bush could not get a status of forces agreement through when he had all the troops. So the blame Obama for this. I think is silly. And if American troops had been there there's no reason to think they would have maintained stability they would have been a target not only of Shia militias it would have been targeted Sunnis. Both sides would viewed the United States as being a problem. I told me dot band now. He he's a former Reagan. Adviser Menu reflects with I express themselves in different ways Obama trump and sands would essentially agree with Doug Bandow. How would you respond? But I think Obama. The Obama Administration came to the conclusion that it had sort of made a mistake in pulling out of Iraq in the manner in which it did because it went back in. You know to fight. Isis applied played an isis merged So I think you know. I think there's a tendency when we look at these issues you know to say the US withdraw from all of these conflicts to say. It's a Bama toward the beginning. Iraq was the wrong war. Could start it on false. Premises and Afghanistan was the good war Because it was legitimate when it began and broader than looking at the strategic consequences of both which are sort of independent of the causes right. And you know if you have a country `significant you know as Iraq in the heart of the Middle East. What goes on there has consequences and consequences for the region at a time when there is still continuing terrorism threat. I think is happening now. Let's bring it to Asia a dog. You obviously five a retrenchment of US power from not just Europe in the Middle East. I completely get that but you also support a retrenchment from East Asia question. Why China just feel the strategic vacuum left by Uncle Sam and therefore threaten the integrity of many sovereign states in the region. Doug Bandow well. China's the great challenge and the question of how to deal with China. There's no easy answer. I think the question of what America's role should be. It's clearly much more of a backup role it's not America's job to protect scarborough reef for the Filipinos me last year. Rodriguez territory announced after the Chinese Sankar ship. The US should send the navy in and start bombing. And I'm here with them. I mean it shows the danger of essentially transferring these decisions to local powers. And there's no doubt I think providing security guarantees

How Did White House Press Briefings Go From Daily to Done?

How Did White House Press Briefings Go From Daily to Done?

"Brain. GRAINSTUFF Lauren Bogle bomb here in January of Twenty Twenty bestselling novelist Stephen King and Don winslow took to twitter to make a surprising pledge. They offered to donate two hundred thousand dollars to charity. If Stephanie Grisham the Press Secretary for President Donald Trump agreed to take questions from the full White House. Press Corps for one hour. You're in the White House. Press briefing room. The offer reportedly was rejected by Grisham. WHO's since taking the job in June of two thousand nineteen has yet to hold even one former former White House press briefing? Her views expressed an interview with these sinclair. Broadcast Group is that the briefings are unnecessary because reporters get opportunities to put questions to trump himself sometimes over the roar of the presidential helicopter on the White House lawn for the time being at least the trump administration has abandoned what had been in an important part of White House. Press Corps is routine dating back to the late eighteen hundreds before the official position of White House. Press Secretary even existed. That's when President William McKinley. Kenley set up a workspace in the White House for reporters and sent his first personal secretary. John Addison Porter to give the correspondence what the White House Historical Association notes. where I'm I more or less regular briefings? The White House press briefing gradually evolved into a formal event from the time of president. Herbert Hoover in the late nineteen twenties and early thirties. He's to Linden Johnson's tenure in the mid to late sixties White House press secretary's held twice a day briefing sessions in their own offices according to Martha Joint Kumar Book managing the president's message the White House Communications Operation Richard Nixon though no fan of the press still thought the briefings were important enough that he had a swimming pool torn out so that he could convert the space into a meeting room for briefings. That area is now known as the James S. Brady press briefing room in honor of president. Ronald Reagan's press secretary who was seriously wounded during the attempt. On Reagan's life in Nineteen eighty-one during Bill Clinton's time in the White House in the nineteen nineties. Press Secretary Mike. McCurry decided to allow the daily press briefings to be televised that practice continued until the trump white house began barring cameras from briefings in two thousand seventeen before discontinuing them altogether. Oh we spoke by email but former C. N. N. White House correspondent Dan Lowthian who spent five years covering the Bush and Obama administrations. He said I think the briefings were useful full for a number of reasons. First of all it was an opportunity to get the White House response or thinking on an issue on camera rather than a written statement it allowed us to gang up on them around a question they might have been trying to avoid showing them dodge. An answer is sometimes the news briefings also put statements on the record for later. Comparison finally finally every now and then there would be breaking news and as happened after Osama bin Laden was caught lots of great details even if some turned out not to be true. Lowthian Dan who went on to found little park media and to become a visiting scholar at the School of Journalism at Northeastern University recalls that the format for the briefings was fairly constant. He said there was a certain order to who got called on briefings always started with the Associated Press and ended with a thank you from the Associated Press once in a while the press secretary would mix it up a bit but it usually happened around the same time each day and questions from the first two rows came in order. We also spoke by email with Tom. Tom Jones a senior media writer for the POYNTER Institute. A journalism education organization. He said while it's true that the president and his representatives often make themselves available bowl in informal settings such as the White House lawn. It's not the same as press. Briefings the format of shouting out questions under the sound of a whirling helicopter is not conducive to asking complicated policy questions nor pertinent. Follow up questions. The frenzied free for all of these much too brief informal interviews make it much harder to get into the topics. What's that require nuance and specifics? It's so much easier for the president to brush aside or ignore questions. He doesn't like when he's walking along the White House grounds when he or one of his representatives representatives are standing behind a podium a controlled setting they must face the questions that require long substantive answers as opposed to the one or two short sentences that suffice in those informal formal settings let view essentially is shared by a group of thirteen former White House press secretary and Foreign Service and military officials who published an opinion in peace on. CNN's website in January of twenty twenty calling for trump to restore the regular briefings in their view. Having to prepare for briefings helps the government to run better letter. They wrote the sharing of information known. As official guidance among government officials and agencies helps ensure that an administration speaks with one voice telling one story however compelling it might be Lowthian also sees the apparent end the briefings as unfortunate. He said it's a valid criticism that some reporters others use briefings to showboat. However I think when covering the White House briefings aren't important function that allow the public and reporters to maintain daily connections? Sometimes it's routine information other times. An odd question from the back of the room can turn into the story of the day even so Lowthian says journalists who cover the the administration will find a way to get stories he said this new normal might be unfortunate but not paralyzing. Reporters are in the business of getting information whether it comes from the mouth of his spokesperson or sources all across the beltway.

The Roman Catholic Priest Held Hostage in Lebanon

"This is our final episode on Father Lawrence. Martin Janko a Catholic priest taken hostage by a Lebanese terrorist organization. Last week we examined the curious. Mix Up that led to Father Chen Coz capture sure we also followed the trajectory of the Lebanese terrorist organization Hezbollah and they're extremist co founder. Imad Mugniyah this week. We'll delve into the wretched. Living conditions and abuse Father Janko experienced in captivity will also follow his family's campaign for his release and the multiple to free Father Janko and other US hostages in Lebanon late January nineteen eighty five. Fifty year-old Father Janko was chained to a radiator in the dirty kitchen of an apartment overlooking overlooking Lebanon's because valley on his lap lay an abridged version of David Copperfield. That one of his guards had given him. He must have read it ten times. Already with the glasses he'd had in his pocket when he was captured reaching beneath his sweater he pulled out a raw potato and nibbled nibbled off a piece he placed it near the small hole where his friends family of ants. Were busy foraging. Father Janko envied their freedom freedom. He had been in this filthy kitchen for nearly a month and he still didn't know why nevertheless he had adapted to a little routine meals. Sales were three times a day. Lebanese bread rice fava beans and the occasional vegetable. He was also given one daily trip to the toilet for a while. This visit to the bathroom included a hot shower. Then the boiler in the basement exploded. It had been weeks since he had felt. It's even remotely clean or warm the radiator. He was chained to didn't work and at night. His guards had pile blankets on top of him to keep him from freezing being the end. He was still experiencing occasional tightness around his heart the day before his capture Father Janko had visited a doctor for tests he tried not to dwell. On what the results might have been especially since his father had died at age fifty three from heart attack his two guards. Guards provided occasional distractions during the long days. They were gentle towards father. Janko calling him a Buna the Arabic word for our father father if he was lucky they would strike up a small conversation in broken English. One Guard told a story of his sister visiting a restaurant in Switzerland island not knowing a common word for chicken she had to act it out. The guard burst into laughter and Father Janko couldn't help but chuckle. To one of the men occasionally brought Father Janko a small bag of cookies from his wife. The other gave him Muslim prayer beads to add to the Catholic Rosary. He'd made out of potato sack strings. These small relationships brought a mild sense of comfort to Father Janko during his seemingly endless days but he was otherwise alone. Most of the long quiet hours were passed by praying with his rosary although he had other more devious ways of passing the time every every so often soldiers would bring fresh food like mutton potatoes and tomatoes to the apartment. Father Janko found chances to sneak pieces of food food off the kitchen counter. He would hide them in his close to snack on between meals or to share with the family of ants. Uh One afternoon. In February Father Janko spied a jeep coming over the hill. He grabbed the sweater. He used as a blindfold. A car meant visitors and he was expected to wear a blindfold anytime someone new entered the apartment a few minutes later a strange man strode into the kitchen. Hitchin through the loose. We've his blindfold father. Janko could detect has dark eyebrows a bushy beard and a strong frame. UNBEKNOWNST to him him this was very man who had ordered his kidnapping. The Stranger crouched in front Father Janko and began to speak an interpreter behind him. Said my name is had Rodwin. Conversation was brief had Radwan did not explain y Father Janko had been kidnapped. He simply told him that he would be going home soon. Father Djenka would hear that word. Many times is over. The next eighteen months he would eventually come to mistrust it but for now he clung to this scrap of hope it would be many a years before he or anyone outside of Hezbollah would realize that had Radwan was a pseudonym the man standing before Father Janko was Imad odd move Nia the founder of Hezbollah Hezbollah was Lebanese. Shia extremist group funded by Shia revolutionaries and Iran and the group took root in the months following. Israel's nineteen eighty-two invasion of Lebanon their main goal was to drive Israel and its western Western allies out of Lebanon and to establish a pro Islamic government in the capital city of Beirut at the time of Father Jean Coz kidnapping Hezbollah was still an underground militia who outwardly call themselves Islamic Jihad which means holy war in in December of Nineteen eighty-three. Imad Mughniyah had helped orchestrate the Hezbollah bombing six locations and Kuwait City including the US embassy in the aftermath. Seventeen Shia radicals were captured by the Kuwaiti government. One of them was a mods best friend and brother-in-law Mustafa Body in retaliation for Mustafa's capture Imad had ordered the kidnapping of several. US citizens in Beirut route. He hoped that President Ronald Reagan would pressure the Kuwaiti government to release their seventeen prisoners. But the Reagan administration at least at that point had a staunch policy against negotiating with terrorists to do so would only incite more acts of terrorism in the midst of this impasse. Father Other Janko had been abducted. His was the fifth of eight American kidnappings connected to Hezbollah although one prisoner Jerry. Levin would escape on Valentine's Day February fourteenth nineteen eighty five that morning father Jenkins Guards burst into his his room panicked. They ordered him to put on his blindfold as they unfathomable chains in his haste. Father Janko didn't think to grab his glasses or his rosary. They let him down the hall and into another room of the apartment through his blindfold. He could see a rope. made a bed sheets dangling from a small window high up on the wall.
