Newt Gingrich and the Start of an Era

"This feels like an episode out of like not just a recent. It's not the recent past. Past the distant past I mean newt is still with us, but this is a very different time for newt, and I think that for many people he started to really appear on People's radars outside of Georgia in the early ninety s with a contract for America, but your book predates that so the book starts in the Nineteen Eighties when you Gingrich. Is this young? Young Congressman who comes from Georgia. He's elected in Nineteen, seventy eight, and any comes to Washington ready to just tear everything down to shake things up to do whatever necessary to help. Republicans become a majority in the House of Representatives which they had not been since nineteen fifty four, and he's intent on a not listening to senior members of the Party and to really. Really taking on the Democrats in ways that they had not been comfortable with, and so he makes a name for himself very quickly, even though he's not part of the leadership in the early eighties. Okay, so you're a history. Professor Newt Gingrich Thought of himself as a history professor and was a history professor, but what exactly did he teach? How did his academic career? Career fit in with his political career well, he received his PhD until Lane. After attending undergraduate school in Emory and Gingrich wrote his dissertation on Belgian colonialism, and he wrote about how and why colonial government had failed to modernize local education and nurture an elite that was capable of sustaining economic growth, and what was remarkable about the dissertation in retrospect, which is what he spent. Spent his academic time on was that he was critical of the design of Belgian policies, rather than on the merits of colonialism, which were much less interest to him, but but that wasn't really his his main focus. I mean as soon as he gets to West Georgia College. That's his first job as a professor. He's deeply uninterested in the academic life I think in. In his first year as a professor, he applies to be the president of the university. He then wants to be share the department and he's impatient with the slowness of academia He quickly gains a thirst for the life of politics, and that's really what engages him, and in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy four. He decides to run against the incumbent in his district. District John Flint who's an old southern Democrat. What are nudes politics like growing up? Because he conservative early on, and did his conservative ideology remained consistent throughout his life. Yeah, he comes from a working class family. The family's originally from Harrisburg. His father left his mother while she was pregnant with him, so he didn't have much of a relationship with him. He is raised. primarily by his stepfather, who's in the military, so Gingrich spends a lot of his youth travelling around. He's what we call an Army Brat, and lives in different places in Europe before the family finally settles in Georgia, which is the final stop? He's a Rockefeller Republican during the nineteen sixties. He he is conservative, but he is interested in Republicans like Nelson Rockefeller and then Richard Nixon who had ambitions of building a big Republican coalition as FDR had done for Democrats in the Nineteen Thirties. He doesn't really make a hard right. Right, turn until about nineteen seventy five I'm what prompts that well. He ran for the first time unsuccessfully in nineteen, seventy, four against flint. Then he's getting ready to run against Flint again in nineteen seventy six, and he meets some people associated with the conservative movement like Paul Way Rick. Who's running these camps for up and coming Republicans and he like many young Republicans starts to become enamored with what's this conservative movement that's bubbling up in America and talking about the need to dismantle government to be much more aggressive on national. National Security and this is when he starts to shift to what will eventually be the Reagan Revolution? Would you say that his guiding principles were firmly aligned with Reagan conservatism, or were there differences there? There were differences. Gingrich for example is much more concerned about environmental issues even in the early nineteen eighties than a lot of Reagan Nights, are he? He actually takes those kinds of policies much more seriously, but generally he lines up by the time he's in the house. He believes in tax cuts. He believes in deregulation. Deregulation, he believes importantly in a very muscular approach to fighting the Soviet Union and to fighting allies in places like Central America so though there are differences between him, and and some of the hard core inner circle of the Reagan administration. Generally they line up pretty well

Trump Has Given Unusual Leeway to Fauci, but Aides Say He's Losing His Patience

"In The New York Times today how trump has given unusual leeway to value but aides say he is losing his patience so they are now this will be Maggie Haberman quoting anonymous sources saying that president trump is not happy without you because now she has been blunt about when he thinks that trump is not saying the right thing according to The New York Times the president has resisted preferring the virus is the kind of friend describe I found you know the public health experts in his effort to create a positive vision of a future where the virus is less of a danger critics have accused trump of giving false hope Dr fashion the president publicly disagreed on how long it will take for a coronavirus vaccine to become available and whether an antimalarial drug chloroquine help with those with the could help those thank you form of the virus patches made clear he does not think the drug necessarily hold the potential trump says it does and then the article continues talking about how felt she and trump are bit at odds and and basically in your times pushing on this sort of gash trying to trying to make it bleed again that you can just current role as in as the aids epidemic was exploding and Reagan was paying a little attention yes you ever cook the Surgeon General were widely credited with spurring the Reagan administration's action against aids is recognized from the need for praising the president's presence in with audiences friendly to him now she has been complimentary doctor found you savvy not just at the end of the inner workings of the government about the news media that covers it but in the past few weeks White House officials have become more concerned that he's criticizing the president again none of these officials speak on record president trump himself is ready trespassing is listening to Patrick but that's not stopping the media from pushing on this as hard as they can Chris Cuomo on CNN says he's worried about doctor Faustus future in the White House not seeing Dr Anthony Fauci onstage today worried me and it should worry you you know the doctor now he's a member of the coronavirus task force director of the National Institute of allergy and infectious diseases but more than that he's become like America's grandpa he gives conscience in comfort and fact to this country and uniquely so more people are getting sick I do not see how we get through this any better or faster without Toni found G. present an up front okay well he was in there yesterday because sometimes you actually have to do his job as opposed to just talking to you idiots in the media I mean like I'm all for fancy talking to media like I hope to have money selling some point in your future but sounds he does have like a job it's not just informing people of what is going on right and it did this whole this whole attempt to split off from from algae is so counterproductive in ridiculous fashion today blasted the media suggesting that they were attempting to liberally to divide him from president trump he's carrying on W. MEL mornings on the mall with a host of merry Walter asking county about president from fifteen day timeline he said that if it's in a time when before reassessing here's what's out you had to say that is really unfortunate I would wish that that would stop because we have a much bigger problem here then trying to point out differences there really fundamentally at the core when you look at things there are not differences the president has listened to what I have said it with the other people on the task force it said when I made recommendations he's taken them he's never counted all over with me the idea of just pitting one against the other is just not helpful I wish that would stop but we look ahead at the challenge we have to pull together to get over this thing and then of course is exactly right like in a time like this it seems like it would be a fairly good idea would it not to unite from without you and by the way fancy has that from his take my advice so who's ever birth she says I'm confident that trump is listening to the expert is the woman who's leading up as one of ours response I am confident that the president has listened to and seen all of our data as it involves I think you can see that the president over the three weeks it's been very focused on what the American people need both economically and public health wise but I think it's incumbent on every public health officials to be looking at their data and I'm very granular way to understand who's at risk who's at risk of hospitalization who's at risk of mortality how do we stop the spread and really moved to a twenty first century supercomputer in approach rather than a more generic slide rule based approach okay and and she is saying what is corrected trump listen to the right people so stop forwarding the media's agenda by by attacking a pouch on the one hand on the other hand the media needs to stop fostering this sort of discontent and again they're perfectly valid questions to be asked by the trump administration response but trying to foster sort of this personality clash with important people in the middle of pandemic the media are not doing their jobs or maybe they are they're

Providing Cost-Effective Quality Consumer-Driven Healthcare with Henry Legere, CEO, Founder at Reliant Immune Diagnostics

"What inspires your work in in healthcare. Henry I mean so there's not just one thing but one thing that I can say Is definitely a seminal moment was when I was in the fourth grade? My Dad had a stroke right in front of me out at a restaurant and so over the course of from being in the fourth grade through going to college. My Dad was in the military at the time so he was considered a hundred percent permanently disabled after that and Had been veterans benefits that when The Radio Administration froze veterans benefits in the eighties. They hit our family. Pretty hard and so Trying to find access to healthcare when the veteran's hospitals and clinics were closed and then actually be able to afford healthcare. You know just being a child and watching your your parents struggle like that was very impactful so when I went to college. It was halfway with a sense of purpose to you know one day. Try to practice healthcare and be compassionate and and just be mindful of the challenges that families with healthcare burdens experience. Wow that's a story man. I I didn't even know that. So at one point during the Reagan administration the VA closed. Yeah so it was. It was one of those things where it was one of those things where the government didn't have a budget and they were playing hard ball and so I think that the Reagan administration and I'm not playing politics. I you know. I think that I think the Reagan administration so there were a lot of entitlements that they needed to be cut when you're trimming the the belt and try to figure out how to balance the budget and get people to come to the table and it was a bargaining tactic and it just went on and on and on so they ended up being about. I don't remember if it was six or nine months. But you know when you're looking for a doctor you're trying to pay those medical bills. It was a long time to end. It wasn't just the you know the medical benefits it was also the factual salary my dad guy as a disabled veteran so it was even just the stipend that we lived on and then suddenly we were. We went from very little money almost no money. Oh yeah that. I'm sure that was hard. I'm sure that was hard. And you know it's Really really thank you for sharing ad. pizza history that you know. I feel like maybe some of us didn't know like me or some forgot and it's worth remembering but more than anything Henry. It's it's the impact that it had on you. And how what you're doing today to improve access and make things easy for people it's really inspiring so this is a great opportunity for us to zoom into your company and help listeners. Understand what exactly it is that that you guys are doing. And how is it that it's helping the healthcare ecosystem? Yeah great so telemedicine in general has so much potential and it had this potential since it was conceived of more than fifteen years ago and the biggest challenges earlier in Telemedicine telehealth technology regulatory so early on even if you could get patient to connect on their phone to perform some sort of medical consultation in many states. It wasn't legal. You had to have prior physician patient face to face relationship and so there were. There were legal regulatory barriers in place. And then how you actually conducted the visit. Whether it was over a land line or computer was was different in different states could actually conduct the visit whether had to be board certified physician or if it could be one of the mid levels like a nurse practitioner or a PA working under the direction of the position that also different statements state and so with those hurdles in place and made it very challenging to utilize. What has the potential to be something very much more affordable and also something they can almost immediately increase access and so One of the positive developments over the past couple of years technology has caught up so with Bluetooth connected triage devices so everything from blood pressure. Cuffs to blood glucose monitors to pulse ox senators to devices that can allow you to image eardrum. The back of the Throat Medical Stethoscopes. That are Bluetooth connected. All of those can be integrated onto a software platform that can then give live accurate information to providers that could be sitting remotely and state by. State. Those laws have caught up so that now you can actually establish a patient provider relationship through telemedicine visit so the promise of telemedicine. It's just on the verge of being realised even Federal Government in. Hhs has relaxed regulations on conducting. Telehealth is it's because they realized that our current health care models not sustainable men in order to really be able to cut costs. You have to take advantage of these cost-saving technologies without compromising the quality of care and so at the end of the day everything still has to come back to the quality of the care that's been delivered but for simple visits things like cold and Flu. Differentiation strep throats ear infections initiating birth control science pressure pain rationality pink. They're just so many types of visits that you can tackle using the tools that you already have in front of you and so we tried to do is go even a step further and create an entire network nationwide of physical locations where we will. We can do what we call hats. Telemedicine visits so instead of just being a simple visit. That's limited to the information that you can convey you know with a phone call or with a video call. We WanNa make sure that we have all the tools on site so that we don't compromise any aspect of the patient visit so that we can actually get really high quality lung sounds capture. A HEART RHYTHM performing K. Jeez on sites get pictures in the mirror drum. And so we've set up these pods that we call Are Empty box pro version and really what they are just enhanced telemedicine visit and it works through a partnership with either a doctor's office that don't have access to specialists or with other non traditional locations like a pharmacy where a pharmacist or or member of this team can be trained by our practice. The telemedicine extender and so they go through a credentialing process and training process and we basically show them how to be a medical assistant in our medical practice and then we maintain their certification on our administrative platform and then it becomes shoe partnership so when people are on site in any of these pharmacies they can initiate a doctor's visit or visit with one of our other practitioners like nurse practitioner or a physician assistant so Exciting Times it really is and you know as you think about that moment when your dad didn't have access to care what you're doing today is just like incredible and it kind of reminds me of Howard Schultz his experience with his dad. Not sure if you know that experience historic now yes so Howard Schultz the CEO of starbucks his. His Dad got hurt at work and it was a real is really bad. And they let him go and they didn't cover any of his bills and it was really bad and it really affected the family in a in a severe way that because of that he made a decision that every employees even part time at starbucks would have

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.

"Shows and yes he blows the in the house Democrats accompanied by a couple of house Republicans are suggesting it's time to curb the executive branch's war making authority so they are now opposing the moves that box in Iran this is now the formal democratic position not that they have a general objection which might lead us to executive authority but they have a specific objection to what trump just did in Iran which is insane because this is the most successful foreign policy moved since really maybe the end of the Reagan administration that certainly since it was in school for one the the bottom line to this is that Ron was backed off of its aggression they were backed off and they lost their top commander they lost their top tier commander who was by all accounts the most effective person if Iran any or any and the Democrats are angry about it they're upset about it why again not because they believe that the congressional authority has been violated Brock about it routinely the reason they're upset is because Donald Trump gave the why to the Obama administration's life and now they've been exposed to here is Nancy Pelosi saying we're gonna vote on a war powers resolution speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi putting out a statement moments ago saying that a war powers resolution would be will be voted on in the house tomorrow war powers resolution she says to quote limit the president's military actions regarding our Ron and this legislation is going to the rules committee and she says will be voted on tomorrow in the house okay I know the world ignoring the fact that the Iranians tried to burn our embassy in Baghdad last week but imagine the kind of insanity it takes to hit from so much that the Iranians burn an American embassy and your first move is we've got to limit the president from Italian and we have to limit the president for responding again not coming from a place of principal opposition to executive use a commander in chief power but coming from we just don't like that trump has exposed our entire ideology on foreign policy and would let a car parts this is just ridiculous lawmakers from across the house democratic caucus left a closed door meeting with top from administration officials in a secure room in the capitol on Wednesday frustrated if not outright angry at what they described as a big justification for last week's deadly drone strike that killed Orion Major General Qasem Soleimani shortly after he arrived in Baghdad so they're angry we killed someone money they're angry at the justification which is that he was involved in the burning of the United States embassy last week this is what they are angry after seriously formula dry appalled I'm a credible Washington and co chair of the congressional progressive caucus which is is kind of an adjunct member of the squad she is there is no real evidence presented this was an imminent threat okay so he's only eight nonimmigrant meaning that I guess two weeks from now he was going to murder Americans but we didn't know if he's gonna murder Americans like specifically tomorrow here is dry appall announcing that trump recklessly assassinated solely money I mean this is doing the P. R. work of the Iranians this is the result of reckless actions by president trump of military brinksmanship president trump recklessly assassinated Qassem Soleimani he had no evidence of an imminent threat or attack and we say that coming from a classified briefing where again there was no raw evidence presented that there was an imminent threat again I'm gonna need to know whether any of these Democrats asked for the raw classified information that led to the virology what was the imminent threat from on we're all looking what was the imminent threat from Osama bin laden for that matter it turns out the killing terrorists is authorized under the authorization to use military force that is pretty much the only thing that is authorized under the AUMF has passed in the aftermath of nine eleven and what is really is about is Democrats being upset the Donald Trump did a thing that they don't like that expose their entire ideology is why and Gerry Connolly out there like this prison was entirely and convincing okay late again where were you when Barack Obama was declaring war in Libya without any congressional authorization then ignoring

Why Israeli settlements are an obstacle to peace

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

Firing president. Trump took aim at IANOVICH even as the public hearing was underway intelligence committee chairman. Adam Schiff asked her about a tweet by the president during the hearing. What would you like to respond to the president's attack that everywhere you went turned bad? I I mean I don't I don't think I have such powers not Mogadishu Somalia Somalia and not in other places. I actually think that Where I've served over the years I and others have demonstrably Made things better you know for the US as well as for the countries That I served in joining me now from Washington with more details. His Wall Street Journal reporter Byron Towel Byron. Tell us about that moment. We just heard where Uvarov vich responded more or less in real time to the president's criticism of her certainly very interesting. It was essentially you know the president and a witness in in his impeachment inquiry having a dialogue even though they essentially weren't in the same room and I think a lot of Democrats found her answer. Very compelling you know especially the part where she said that it's quite intimidating out that the president tweets that at his critics and you even saw the chairman. Adam Schiff suggests that that the president's tweet could be seen as witness tampering or witness intimidation and an attempt to derail the congressional probe before going public today.

She went out of her way to emphasize that she served presidents of both parties. She joined the Foreign Service during the Reagan administration. She's been appointed ambassador by both George W Bush in Barack Obama. She came across as sober she. She generally avoided waiting into the partisan controversy and and tried to stick to the facts but she also spoke from the heart quite often talking about her family. Escaping persecution in the Soviet Union Nazi Germany and and what serving America means to her and talking about what the personal impact of basically her removal as ambassador hat on her in her wife. We've now heard from three witnesses. Who testified publicly this week taken together? What kind of picture are we starting to see? Or what kind of picture they painting of what went on here here between the. US and Ukraine.

We've we've now heard from three State Department officials who say essentially that there was this sort of outside channel outside influence on. US foreign policy that had a direct lines president trump and bypass the normal channels in the State Department. Democrats are pushing the notion that the president's actions around in Ukraine warrant his removal from office and Republicans essentially are saying nothing to see here.

Joe Walsh: Strongly considering primary challenge to Trump

"Donald trump's approval rating among republicans sit somewhere between eighty or ninety percent which is pie although that comes with a bit of an asterisk asterisk which is that trump is driven a lot of people away from identifying as republicans people like michigan congressman justin amash who called for trump's impeachment and who was a republican in good standing but has now switched to being an independent. He's the kind of person who wouldn't show up one of those polls. Here's the fundamental problem. There are a number of self described conservatives who do not like like donald trump but most don't really have any political base or power and that's the problem facing anyone wants to mount a primary challenge the president and the g._o._p. And yet interestingly thinly enough there are people who want to give it a shot anyway for massachusetts governor. William weld is in he has declared he is running now. Former south carolina governor and congressman mark sanford former former illinois congressman and talk show radios joe walsh appear closer during the race and challenging the president and anthony scaramucci says he's going to rustle up a bunch of ex trumpers to take the president on as well ultimately the stakes. Here may be mostly about donald trump. Som psyche almost certainly going to trounce any republican challenges him and yet. There's a lot of reporting that suggests team is obsessed with staving off primary challenges here discuss a reagan administration official and share the center for equal opportunity linda chavez and former tea party activists been how the author of the immoral majority new book about evangelical and trump in co host of the fifth estate podcast linda. I don't know i guess i'm skeptical optical but i'm seeing all those noises it looks like sanford and walsh will get in scaramucci is trying to rustle up some group of folks. Is there anything here you think well. I mean if you look back back at what happened to president. George herbert walker bush in nineteen ninety-two he did get challenged by pat. Buchanan obviously buchanan's challenge well. I think stronger than any of the people we've been talking about are going to be able to muster against trump did harm him and i think it set him up for ultimate failure in the general election. I think that's what this is. All about. None of these guys that we're talking about are likely to defeat donald trump unless trump goes evan farther off the rails and then we've seen him so far but being able to damage him being able to come at him as walsh might from the right could could have some impact and might dampen

'Expect Change': Robert Lighthizer Is Trump's Hardball-Playing China Trade Negotiator

"Support for this NPR podcast and the following message. Come from NBC's new drama the enemy within Erica shepherd betrayed her country. Now, she's the FBI's only hope in stopping America's greatest enemy. But can she be trusted Mondays beginning February twenty fifth on NBC right now representatives of the two largest economies in the world, China and the United States are locked intense negotiations over trade leading the US delegation is US Trade Representative Robert lighthizer lighthizer is a lawyer with more than four decades of experience in Washington trade battles. He grew up in a steel port town on Lake Erie. And it is that experience that helped turn him into a major skeptic of free-trade NPR's. Jim zarroli has this profile last October, President Trump unveiled a trade agreement with Mexico and Canada it had taken months to negotiate. And as he did he turned to shake hands with a tall unassuming man who stood behind him. Holding a folder filled with papers, no matter when you call them. He was in the office or he was in somebody else's office doing the same thing. He Bob lighthizer scrape. I've heard for years I said if I ever do this wanna get lighthizer to represent us because he felt the way I did with Robert lighthizer, Trump has a trade Representative who very much shares his hard ball views on trade, if not his pugnacious style, take China, for instance, way back in the nineties lighthizer was warning that China was no ordinary market economy. It didn't play by the rules. If American markets were open to Chinese imports. He said, no US factory job would be safe and lighthizer views on China. Haven't changed over the years. Here's a speech from 2017 the sheer scale of their coordinated efforts to develop their economy to subsidize to create national champions into distort markets is a threat to the world trading system. Mm-hmm. That is unprecedented. And lighthizer has been a big critic of trade deals like NAFTA. He warned that they would devastate American manufacturing in Washington where one administration after another preached the gospel of free trade lighthizer views placed him outside the mainstream for a long time says Edward Alden of the council on foreign relations, the view in Washington has been that opening up trade is good for the United States and good for the other countries involved late Heiser is a profess economic nationalist. He's very much about what's in it for the United States, but laser is well respected, even by those. He's clashed with such as former US Trade Representative Mickey cantor who helped negotiate NAFTA for the Clinton administration Kanter says he's often been at odds with lighthizer, but he concedes that lighthizer has a deep understanding of trade law while he's bright. He's experienced. He's a confident is certainly understands these issues. Backwards and forwards, but lighthizer also has fans and some even more unusual places. He's well respected by unions. And by people on the left such as Laurie Wallich a leading opponent of trade deals. Bob lighthizer is kind of like the unicorn US R. It's like a mythical beast who actually by merit of his past work has relationships with Democrats in congress and with unions and has relationships with businesses and with Republicans Wallich, founder of global trade. Watch remembers listening to lighthizer speak-out against NAFTA in the nineties. She was surprised at her own reaction, which was. That's kinda scary that right wing Reagan administration. Republican trade guy is saying things that I seventy percent agree with since then they've often worked together in trade battles. And they talk regularly lighthizer skepticism about free trade was shaped in part by his background. He grew up in relative comfort in the Ohio city of Ashta Beulah. Mark plug Okkas worked with him at a summer job. In a grocery store is a good kid and some well-spoken. His dad was a doctor which in Nashville at that time was you know, elite social status the ash Beulah of lighthizer childhood was a thriving port town it shipped in iron ore for steel mills and shipped out coal from Kentucky and West Virginia. But much of that is gone today. Former union official Ray Gruber, drove me around town on a cold overcast day past empty storefronts and face. Needed frame houses, these days much, less freight comes through Abiolas port and many of its manufacturers have fled the big plants have all moved out and that happened late seventies early eighties. I think there's a lot shock and all because now you've got two thousand people who are looking for work. Those who know him say lighthizer brings up ash Beulah decline in conversation. And that it's affected his views on trade. Leo Gerard is president of the United Steelworkers or grew up in orca class town, and you know, how people have suffered by losing jobs. And and I suspect that that's part of why he went into the that part of the legal profession has a lawyer lighthizer represented the steel industry in Washington. He also worked on trade policy in the Reagan administration at the time. His target was Japan, which was seen as a big threat to American manufacturing jobs. Lighthizer helped push Tokyo to accept limits. On how much it exported to the US says Edward Alden. I think the Japan experience told him the only way you make progress is through threats that you're prepared to carry out to restrict access to the world's largest market, which is the United States. Now lighthizer is trying to make the same threats against China. He sees China as an even more formidable adversary than Japan its markets remained largely closed to outsiders. He says intellectual property theft is a huge problem. Here's what light is our said in two thousand seventeen expect change expect new approaches and expect action now as the country's chief negotiator on trade. Lighthizer is in a position to do something about it. And those who know him say light is at seventy one use this as his last best chance to reverse the decline of cities such as Ashton Beulah. The town. He grew up in Jim zarroli in here news. Support for this podcast and the following message. Come from Comcast business having the nation's largest gig speed network was just the start.

"Show. Bob Woodward book on the Trump administration is the fastest selling book in years impact. The publisher of the book says that they're preorder numbers seven hundred and fifty thousand copies broke Simon and Shuster is all time preorder sales record for the first day. Now. Can't argue with success co there's an appetite for this book because you know, there's a lot of people who just want to consume negative information about the Trump administration. It validates their worst thoughts about it. But it is getting a little bit of scrutiny right now. A lot of people are stepping up and saying, listen, here's my biggest argument about it. Everything that is in Bob Woodward's book by definition because they are all non animus quotes. They cannot be proven. Right. I mean, they can be. But Bob Woodford is willfully choosing not to prove them. See the only way he can prove them as if he out the so-called anonymous sources, and he won't do that. And so it is up to us to just sort of trust him. Right. But of course, this is the same guy who claims that he had a deathbed can confession by former director Casey during the Reagan administration, and that's kind of dubious, isn't it? I mean, there's a lot of things that are dubious NS, but he even said yesterday to Brian Stelter? I think it was or somebody on MNO's Chris Hayes on MSNBC that one of his anonymous sources who has denied saying the things that Bob Woodward claims he said called him, privately and said your book is a thousand percent correct Bob Woodward says he just can't tell us who that

Yes or people who had observed it or you know, it sounds ridiculous today where it's it's legal in in Colorado as you're probably right now, right? No, but then it was illegal and the Reagan administration had a rule that it wouldn't hire for any position, including lowly assistant US attorney positions anybody who had smoked marijuana or used any other drug after he or she had been admitted to the bar. Now, Douglas Ginsburg had been assistant attorney general in the Reagan administration, and then was on the DC circuit. And he had been a professor at Harvard Law School and its Moke pot after being admitted to the bar and probably worse yet for him. He done it in front of the children of some professors at Harvard law.

It's important to newsworthy in it's significant any reported, but this is one of those cases where have to report. I was really dumb. I had gone to Boston to do a profile of him and of his legal philosophy, and I'd interviewed a whole lot of people. And among those people I've found out this information and for some stupid reason, I didn't think that it was the lead necessarily anti, but I knew it was important and I call my boss and I tell her and I'm on, I'm by the time I land in Washington. Everybody is waiting for me telling me that everybody knows I have this story in Washington and that the post is wildly trying to match it. And I have to go on the air like that minute. And so all of my plans of how I was going to fit this in with his legal philosophy, then I'll just went to hell in a hand basket. I go on the air and I'm not the person of today. The person who today would have understood. I think better ABCD eighty seven is a longtime ago. I'm a, I'm a younger broadcast reporter. I have no idea what I said. I got it out there and it got picked up immediately and You you know, know. these were very different times and the Democrats all thought this was hilarious, and the Republicans all were horrified in the nomination was withdrawn. How did that make you feel personally that it was that reporting that was the cause of the withdrawal, not the reporting, but the fact of it, and then you exposed it that feel weird is a journalist. No. I mean, does it feel satisfying in some way or it just, it is what it is. In this case, you know, there were plenty of people who even within the administration who were not thrilled with this nomination and judge Ginsburg has gone on to have a rather distinguished career on the DC circuit conservative and distinguished, but he was extremely. I mean, it was sort of Kuku nomination at the time he was not somebody who'd been on the circuit for a long time who had earned some sort of big national reputation. And I think that there were people within the administration who were sort of not happy with that. And then in addition, I later found out that there were other things that Biden looked at Ginsberg's record and said, this guy is not gonna get confirmed, but I didn't know that at the time. So fast forward a few years, not that many years and the president nominates the different president nominates Clarence Thomas George H W Bush nominates Clarence Thomas to be in the supreme court, and everyone knows that that was a rocky hearing for various reasons, but you are the one who got information about Nita hill. How'd that come about. Well, for the summer of that year, I kept hearing stories that there were tales of sexual harassment involving Clarence Thomas who after all at the time he only been for the DC circuit for about a year.
