Rick Perry Says Biden Wants to Destroy the Oil and Gas Industry

"Here's what Rick Perry says the former secretary of energy under Donald Trump. This message from the Biden administration to the rest of the world, but particularly to the woke left that I'm going to do what you demand me to do. And that is to bring the oil and gas industry to its knees. That message is being heard loud and clear from the boardrooms across America to the Federal Reserve, all across this country. Every agency of government, they have their ESG, their environmental concepts, of which they're pushing into all of their regulations. And it's not lost on our oil and gas producers. It's not lost on our allies around the world. This administration truly is willing to put the world in jeopardy to send a message to his buddies in the political side of things that he's going to hold firm for them on this climate change issue.

Energy Secretary Doesn't Know How Much Energy Americans Need

"Biden authorized the President Biden authorized the use of the strategic oil reserve yesterday to combat U.S. gasoline prices. It's a fade. It's a fake. Three 50 million barrels of oil sounds like a lot. The strategic oil reserve is for dire national security emergencies. Donald Trump filled it up to the brim, and President Biden had taken up 50 million barrels to make a gesture. It may have a little tiny impact on three days of gas. Three days of gas prices. That's what it is. No other nations are Tapping into their oil reserves and a collective effort to bring it down, not going to work. The kind of amount of oil we consume in the world is one of those pieces of data that nobody really knows. It's so astonishing, high. Except maybe the secretary of the energy, right? The energy will know. How much oil we can. Let's go to her number two energy secretary Jennifer grant on The White House press yesterday. How much oil do we consume? Do you know how many barrels of oil does the U.S. consume per day? I don't have that number in front of me. Some suggest it's about 18 million, which would suggest your releasing less than three days worth of supply from the petroleum reserve. Why is that enough? It isn't enough. Not knowing, by the way, not knowing how many barrels of oil, the United States consumes every day. Why in the world would we believe the secretary grant on those? And if Rick Perry had done that, remember Rick couldn't remember the three agencies when he himself was on painkillers. She'd be if it had been him. He'd be roasted with the turkeys by

"Ted. Good morning, Rick Perry. Go not sunny and 70 today. That's for sure. Chili football weather, Right? Alright, I'll take it. Hey, folks Wanna talk today a little bit about The Corona virus and the pandemic. And what I really want to do is help bring some of it into focus because this pandemic has certainly Changed our very way of life right now, and we'll have lasting impacts as we go on, and unfortunately here at the law firm and across the countries You know my colleagues across the country experiencing and talking about the same things of so many of the tragedies that we're experiencing right now that are happening to families do to Cove it and other related issues on top of this normal life, and just how much more significant it is. On the negative impact for those of you who do not have an estate plan or you have an out of date estate plan and the turmoil that this causes for your family. And if so amplified through the pandemic that we have right now, and it's just causing a tremendous amount of stress. So you know, this is kind of my Plea. Yes to say, folks we know. You know, you need to do your estate planning. I don't have to tell you. You need to do it. Apparently. What I do need to tell you is you need to do it now. We typically seem to see people waiting until they're retired, or even late into retirement. And, you know, Ted Ni of both had situations here is some very recently where we're literally with pen and pencil at the bedside. While the person is dying, trying to cobble together in a state plan, Ted does that ever work out in the best? Well, generally speaking, that's the that's a disaster waiting to happen when they When you're in that situation, you know that's what we call crisis planning. And if you folks have ever tried to plan in a crisis, you understand you don't always make The best decisions and everything is kind of rushed along and you don't really put the time and thought into it that you really need to to make it all work, then so bedside planning. There's a number of reasons why it's bad, but But nevertheless, it needs to get done, and that's the wrong time to find out. You mean it's better than nothing, but the problem is timing and opportunities and missed opportunities. There's certain things you just can't do, um, that you could have done in a more timely fashion. And usually Rick that arises in a situation where someone finds themselves without the ability to help another person without the ability to help apparent because they simply didn't plan and all of a sudden there. At this crossroads where now you're really just talking about death. Planning where you could have been, you know, planning in advance for incapacity planning, you know, it's really been a challenge and with the covert restrictions and the stay at home and the lockdowns Um, It's been very, very challenging, and we've had a lot of tragedy even here in our own law firm with our client base and around the region, and you know the other area that's being impacted. A great deal is in younger folks that are Having issues with covert, whether it be, you know, loss of employment, or, you know, covert itself in the impact it has on those with minor Children. Because folks, it's rare rare. The people under 40 or 50 having a state plan very, very few of you. Only about 25 to 30% of you over 65 have even some semblance of an estate plan. So I'm talking to most of you when I say, you know, not having estate planning, and this is the time. That I think families. Are getting to know each other a little better in some cases by sheltering in place and that but that causes a host of other problems. But, you know, I'm encouraging folks to you know. Talk to your aging parents asked them if they have a plan, Make sure you yourself have a plan because of state planning is really about planning for uncertainty during your lifetime. And helping manage your affairs during your lifetime. Should you be unable to do due to illness or disability of some sort? And the after death. Planning isn't about you. It's about those you care about. And so it's really, you know, a long time ago. There was a national network of estate planning attorneys, and they coined the term loving trust. Now I always thought that was kind of corny, but their premise was You are doing this for other people when you set up a trust and and or will and you're giving money to your beneficiaries that is an act of love. And so it does have some some merit. So you know, a great deal of estate planning is, you know, Do you love your family? This is a test. Do you love your family? And by not having an estate plan. You can't answer that question without your nose growing a little bit, So I really am imploring folks during this time, too. Really takes stock of what's important because I think the pandemic has certainly shown us the importance of family and health on our society and the ravaging Impacts it can have on that. When we have situations like this, This is not going to be the only pandemic that we face or the only crisis that we face. There will be others. I don't know what they will be, and I don't know when they will be. I just know there will be others. And so I've talked the entire time I practice law about planning for the worst. Planning for the unexpected. The things you can't even imagine. You plan for the worst folks, and then you can go ahead and hope for the best. Unfortunately, many of you are going through life, hoping for the best saying it'll work out. Ted when we sit there, and we say it's going to work out well, sure, everything will get done. But how Well, The problem with that scenario is that you're shifting that responsibility to somebody that may be unprepared for the you know for the plan that you don't have been having to deal with that, and that's really tough and The other thing, That's important. I think the point out to people right now, Rick is that you know we weaken do this remotely, for the most part, another which we can have telephone conversations, and we could have zoom meetings, and we could do things like that. Whereas before it was almost always in person, and now that dynamic has changed, and we've kind of had to Just to that change, But I can tell you right now that we're getting that done, and we have people that you know. We talked about their plans, and we send them plan in advance and they can read it. And then they come in and To execute. The thing takes about 30 minutes with minimal exposure to other people with mask and gloves and a plexiglass shield in front of us. And so these are the types of things that not only our firm has had to adjust do but all of state planning firms across the country have had toe Just do what I can tell you that it's still getting done. And it's still going on. So don't let the cove it prevents you from doing what you think you should do or what you know you should be doing, which is getting in a state planet place. Actually, Cove. It should be a wake up call. But if I don't have a plan, I darn well better gift. That's right. I had a client in this week of said for I guess going on a year or so he had a sticky on his computer that said, Get your estate plan done, and he finally gave me a call a couple of weeks ago, and sure enough, we got him a plan, but it was really important him and he had he had what Rick's talking about it That is the heightened sense of having to get it done. And what finally pushed him over the edge. I think was this pandemic and you know people that he knows getting sick and things of that nature..

The Brainwashing of my Dad (with documentary filmmaker Jen Senko)

"My mother thinks that rush limbaugh. Yoda you know what? Saying? She's always saying well, rush limbaugh says. Our rush had a great monologue. It was just on point. Oh it's he so tuned into the Culture Rush Limbaugh g listen to rush limbaugh the other day and of course I know I don't listen to rush limbaugh. I did fifteen years ago. You know I was a Ditto head actually read for you a chapter about right wing radio on the broadcast I read it out of my book couple of weeks ago. But I wanted to come back to this because I feel like it's Really been on my mind and it's hugely relevant in today's culture. We've got a whole group this graphic of these pulpit pounding Bible Banging, rush, limbaugh right, Wing Radio Listening Evangelical 's right the Christian Nationalists and they're screaming the name of God is they use their religion just to be Shitty to other people. May I've noticed that about a lot of these guys limbaugh Michael Savage, etc. they're just nasty people. They are always being cruel to other people there pushing buttons because they can. They're stoking the fires of outrage and they sit back and bask in the ratings and the advertising dollars and. All the way to the bank. There's this I think it's a myth that rush limbaugh is himself a Christian. I. Know He likes to speak the language of Christianity. I'm not convinced the Guy Cares at all about the Bible or religion of any kind and back I'd love to sit them down and give him like a sixty second Bible quiz just to see how much he really in fact I'd like to sit most the evangelical 's in power. Donald. Trump I'd like to give him a Bible quiz. Let's just sit down and let me quiz you for a couple minutes. Betsy Devos loved to talk to her Ben Carson Rick, Perry all these people in government are banging their. Bibles I would love to sit them down and asked him basic questions about their faith. But that's a whole other conversation. Today's conversation is with the director and producer of a film called the brainwashing of my dad, an ambassador father who SORTA got sucked in to this rush limbaugh right-wing Radio Christian, nation, kind of narrative focusing at the very least and narrative that sort of others, non-christians, sort of sets them off in their own little box while the moral righteous people are sitting over here. Now, the film itself is not new. It's been out for a few years but I referenced it in my book and I just it's been on my mind because. There is so much of this going on and right-wing radio. I don't think it's ever been more popular. There's video of this conversation. I am going to play some clips from the documentary during the broadcast. These clips add a few extra layers. So you can kind of hear the angle that she's taking Gen Sankoh Director of the documentary film, The brainwashing of my dad. So glad you're here. Hi Seth, it's nice to be here. Give me like a resume real fast the types of work that you've done before the brainwashing my dad. Sure. Will I started out as an artist and a painter? But then I felt like I wanted to reach a wider audience and I just started making films but they were always sociopolitical. The Sue. The first one was roadmap warrior women about really independent women that I met out west and then the second was was. co-director with fury derosa the vanishing city. About the lecture vacation of New York City. But also how it's happening throughout the world and cities coming less affordable and right now I'm writing a book. Also called the brainwashing of my dad. Got Picked up by source books so I can always tell you more. Fun, I mean. Let's go back to your dad. You didn't grow walk in this sort of right wing I mean I know limbaugh started back in the eighties but I mean, you didn't come from that sort of hardcore conservatism. nope. Not at all my parents were what I guess. I would describe as very liberal, very open minded. They were Kennedy Democrats and they were also like FDR Democrats they came from the depression. So FDR them was a hero who pull them out of the depression they most remembered hoover and felt like he didn't do anything but they were really enthusiastic about. And I think they were quite devastated. When he was assassinated. But yeah, they were they were I would actually list describe them as hippies before hippies same. We're very open minded My Dad especially loved talking all different kinds of people very non judgmental. As you probably saw the film, you know one time in this is in the sixties. We came out and port. Authority. We're visiting New York. For the day and there was a a black homeless man and she US Monday for some money my dad called him Sir had a conversation with them. And gave them like a couple of coins or two, but you know so they kind of thing made an impression on me that. You know accept all people and jobs. You know he wasn't for they were judgmental national change later.

"Michael thanks for being here. Thanks for having me. So you've covered very exciting topics before. Wall Street is exciting. Sports is exciting. The Department of Agriculture is not generally considered exciting. How did you decide to to turn to this? So it wouldn't have been exciting before trump. I think trump electrified all the material. So what happened. Several things at once happened. I just finished a book about Danny. Common name is diversity to Israeli psychologist who Study the way people Miss Miss Value. Risk price risk and one of their insights. Was that if you take a catastrophic risks. I mean it's like a one in a million chance of happening and and make it a one in ten thousand still very remote increase the likelihood one hundred times people don't feel it and I had this sense. When trump was elected in the way he was approaching governing that he was he was doing that across a big portfolio of risks that. I thought that the one way to think of the federal government is a manager of giant portfolio of risks many of them catastrophic and that people weren't feeling it exactly. I was doing on this in about how to write about it when he made Rick Perry the Secretary of Energy of Course Rick. Perry had said that he thought the Department of you should be eliminated when he was on stage in a debate but he couldn't remember even the name of the place and once he collided with it he realised. Oh maybe it shouldn't be eliminated because the departmental has nuclear weapons in inside of it and I thought well maybe this is the this is the way maybe actually kind of want follow it follow ric currency what it means for. Rick Perry to be running this place and then somewhere in all this. I learned that the Obama Administration partly because they're required to by law partly because Obama was a responsible person had essentially Had BEEN AT WORK. For a year to create these briefings for the whoever was gonNA roll into the federal government and run it and there was a there have been thousand thousand people across across the government who had spent the better part of a year creating these briefing books thinking about how to present the government to someone who didn't know anything about it and these briefings were supposed to happen the day after the election. I mean they're gonNa roll and that's what happened. When Obama rolled in to replace Bush and the trump people hadn't shown up at all so then I had a hook but now I do too in the hook was I'm GonNa go get the briefings. Briefings and trump people never bothered to get and kind of learn about this portfolio of risk and try to get a sense of what we should be worried about why that was the start and then you ended up covering not just the Department of Energy but also the Department of Commerce and the Department of Agriculture. You know I had a selection problem that reminded me a bit of the selection problem. I had with the big short and the big short there was a pool of kind of fifteen Wall Street guys who had seen the crisis coming or thought they'd seen it coming and made a fortune betting on the collapse of either Wall Street or the housing market and I wandered around a long time on a casting. Search figure out which ones were the best to tell the story through. Who are the other contenders? There were a lot of them. I mean they were. They were hundreds of them but they were fifteen of them and and all were willing to let me write about him. It was just who could kind of teach the reader the most important things what was the best way to dramatize this. And in this case I had actually fifteen cabinet level positions fifteen departments to choose from and I had a narrow down. I couldn't do the federal government. I wasn't gonNA keep the reader for more than a couple of hundred pages. I knew right away it was going to be three or four and I thought I had some criteria I thought one. It's gotta be something that I suspect. Most readers have no idea what it does and I just. I would just market test this. I'd be at a dinner party and say they might tell me what the Department of Commerce does and nobody had any idea that half the budget went to weather collecting weather data. You know or in the department energy most people didn't like Rick. Perry as opposed to the Treasury Department of the State Department of people have some vague idea. What does it? I wanted to be out of the public eye because I thought among other things I think. The risks are greater when public not watching the trump administration and finally. I thought they started to be very important so the Department of Education. I mean it's nothing's not important in the federal government but some of it's more important than than others so i. I spent time in most of the departments. I mean are talked to people from most departments and eliminated things along the way and then figured these are the three I wanted to do. Having said that I mourn not having written about the State Department and more not having read about the Department of the Interior. I think you could drop a writer into any one of these places and he would come away with a really. There's a wonderful stories to tell I mean. The Department of Education Is One. That's been written about a lot because of that. The high profile of the appointee to a lesser extent repairing sort of when he came in there was a flurry of attention and then kind of died away. So what is Rick Perry doing at the Department of Energy and what the Department of Energy supposed to be doing? It's a really good question what he is doing what. I dipped out of this story. I mean the last time I interviewed someone at the department injuries. Maybe six months ago and what I'm told. Is he set himself up as a kind of cheerleader ceremonial head of with the. Who isn't all that interested in the place? So you seem tweet a lot about it but we never got the briefings presumably. I know more about it than he does. Because I sat down with people had them walk me through the whole department. Maybe by now. He's accumulated some information. But what does it do? It's a vast science project what it is and part of the science project is tending to testing assembling nuclear weapons. That that's a big part of the budget. Another big part of the budget is cleaning up nuclear. Waste their sites in this country. And you wouldn't believe it. It's sort of like green type. Post-apocalyptic PLACES PAN for Washington. The Department of Defense three billion dollars a year trying to clean up the remains of the plutonium factories that that generated the atom bombs for World War. Two you ask the people in the department energy to give you an honest estimate how long it's GonNa take to to clean the place up hundred years one hundred billion dollars. I mean that's not trivial. And and what is at stake is there is a giant plume underground of of nuclear waste. That's slowly drifting towards the Columbia River which is not that far away said up on the Columbia River because they need the water to cool the it was there for a reason but if it leaches into the Columbia River. It's a catastrophe the for the Pacific northwest and it's managed in a very short term way. Things happen there. That are very alarming but does that predate trump or is it always been managed in a short term way although trump was the trigger for my story and trump is by far the most negligent manager of the federal government. We've had my lifetime Fisher probably forever. I never thought of his story. Just about trump. I thought of it. A story about the narrative we have created has poisoned or at Lea- screwed up the relationship between the society and government. That that this whole notion that the government is filled with lazy stupid. Bureaucrats who were kind of dead weight on society is a really dumb story. It's not true story. Department energy actually illustrates this. There is within the Department of Energy and his science project a seventy billion dollar loan portfolio and a few hundred million dollar venture capital fund. That is responsible for the entire. Solar power industry is responsible for Tesla. The first that were given to Tesla it is. It's it's the only place where dollars will be allocated to long term innovation. Industry doesn't do this if you she track back. Where the the innovations that led to the current American economy came from almost always it started with a government some government investment the Internet. The iphone wouldn't wouldn't exist without govern investment. When I think about the government I think of it as this. This exquisitely important exquisitely complicated machine that. We've let rust for decades telling ourselves a story that we need to basically just kick it every now and then it keep it from being too lazy and this guys come along and got sledgehammer. Trump has come along and he's getting this is getting you. He's going to do really mortal damage to it all right. So here's a short term thinking way of looking at this if you have things like nuclear cleanup. That are one hundred year. One hundred billion dollar projects is this potentially four year maybe eight year term of neglect. Kind of benign neglect. Because it's just GonNa it's all moving so slowly anyway or is he actively doing something in these departments. That is making it far worse. We have to worry. I think we have to worry a lot in. That's not me saying there's there are people who were kind of professional watchers of the federal government who are independent reps of the situation and then they're terrified for a few reasons. One is just the people who were in the federal government in the first year. The trump administration twenty percent of the top six thousand managers in the government civil service senior executive types left Biz. A hollowing out of the talent. And there's real talent there. These are not trivial. People people who were there in a lot of people federal government could be being paid a lot more money in the private sector and they've been drawn to some mission whether it's school nutrition or tending the nuclear arsenal or the weather service. They're there because they love the mission in because they know how important job is and we've mistreated those people for a long time. But now the level of mistreatment got very high and the dispersion of those people is a problem but then there are lots of things that are not so long term. I mean the trump budgets zeroed out both the loan program and the investments in the Department Energy Department of Agriculture Department. Agriculture has a three billion dollar research. Budget typically always overseen by a scientist and agricultural scientist. And if you talk to the woman who previously occupied the place Kathy Woteki a re a one a distinguished agricultural scientists who've been in government. Thirty years really knows what she's doing. She's all of his budget right. Now is one way or another being directed to research tied to climate. Change that we're to feed ourselves we're GONNA have to think differently. Be where how and where we grey sheep and cows and grow wheat and the climate change and have a big effect on the food supply trump appointed to this job right wing talk show radio host from Iowa who happened to support who knew who has no science background whatsoever named Sam Clovis now he has recently been removed from consideration. And there's nobody on his anybody in the job right now but the neglect of investment right now in the government will have consequences down the road. The bright spot is make it so bad and this is the point of the book. It make it so bad that people may wake up and we'll have a different narrative about our government.

"The entire debate that Rick Perry is any just kind of stands there looking amused can't believe he's even taking part of this can't believe these have a good day to be on stage with these nobody's and then he decides he's going to run for president and it's just going to wing it that worked out real well nothing like being embarrassed on a national stage because you are clearly unprepared for it I thought of that last night while I was watching the democratic debate with Michael Bloomberg Michael Bloomberg worth sixty something billion dollars twelve richest man in the world and I guarantee you that when they were doing prep for the debate that he had some staff members saying Sir you you have to listen to us on this it's really important I guarantee you're going to be hit with this point and that point they're going to say this in that to you and you have to be able to respond and he probably did what he did many times and business where he was nothing but a screaming success he said all the Shaw who can help they look at you guys look I appreciate your good intentions but I know this situation I'm the guy who's been in the position I know all ready what's coming up and clearly last night watching this I thought no yesterday I talked about the fact it's going to go one of two ways he's got either gonna blow everybody away or he's going to get blown out of the water there's not gonna be a middle ground and he got blown out of the water last night not a surprise because clearly he was unprepared to take on the onslaught of negativity that was aimed toward him it was almost like he couldn't believe it was happening what what do you say all these things what are you talking about Rollins and Horace faced lesbians that was one of the first things to come out of the debate Warrick saying fat broads and horse faced lesbians it was great here's our all state what I want to talk about who were running against billionaire who calls women fat broads and horse faced lesbians and no I'm not talking about Donald Trump I'm talking about Bloomberg are you going to win if we have a nominee who has a history of hiding his tax returns of harassing women porting racist policies like red lining and stop and frisk look all support whoever the democratic nominee is that's the part that just blows me away yeah he he's obviously clearly a racist and a misogynist while supporting anyway broad band for space to lesbians you know I thought in twenty sixteen we hit the new low when not trump was talking about his **** size with Marco Rubio you know it's just not going to get worse than this how much worse can politics in America get that one of the presidential candidates discussing his **** size on stage and last night if got workers good god absolutely worse than it was probably one of the most glorious moments I can remember in American political history it's absolutely may is a this is going to become the quote of twenty twenty odds and horse faced lesbians yeah well if the shoe fits I guess according to Michael Bloomberg all right so I'm sorry I've had all day to think about this but I just can't stop laughing it just cracks me up so anyway Michael Bloomberg shows up at the debate last night and he probably thinks he's going to own the stage either that or he probably thinks the other candidates are going to defer to him I really got the impression that he said to himself Bernie Sanders is the front runner all these other people were nobody see actually kind of said that in a memo that he released yesterday pretty much telling the Democratic Party committee to get rid of these other candidates and throw their support behind him otherwise Bernie Sanders will be the nominee and that's going to take the party down to a flaming Hindenburg like disaster that's the reality of it now he put that out yesterday well they did not take it well I really believe he walked on that stage saying I'm going to really bring it to Bernie Sanders and everybody else will defer to me because clearly they're afraid of Bernie Sanders and and I don't disagree with that point I think they really are but they also weren't afraid of him they were resentful towards him out you know I'm watching this last night and you could just yet what you could feel.

Breaking Down Bloomberg's First Debate

"Up on today's podcast. The ninth and possibly the liveliest democratic debate in Las Vegas. This was the first debate performance for Michael Bloomberg and the other candidates came out swinging. I like to talk about who were running against a billionaire who calls women fat broads and horseface lesbians and no. I'm not talking about Donald Trump. I'm talking about Mayor Bloomberg. It was also the first chance for Bloomberg to respond to criticism on the public stage. Here's an exchange with Senator Elizabeth Warren as she pressed him to release women employees from nondisclosure agreements that prevent them from talking about sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace. I hope you heard what is defense was. I've been nice to some women. The mayor has to stand on his record and what we need to know. Exactly what's lurking out there? He has gotten some number of women. Dozens who knows to sign nondisclosure agreements. Both for sexual harassment and for gender discrimination in the workplace. So Mr Are you willing to release all of those women from those nondisclosure agreements? So we can hear their side of the story. We have a very few nondisclosure agreements. How many finish. How many of them accused me of doing anything? Other than maybe. They didn't like joke. I told and let me let me play agreements between two parties. That wanted to keep it quiet and that's up to them. They signed those agreements and we'll live with taxes you know from all sides and just want to show everybody a quick exchange between Bernie Sanders and Mike Bloomberg believed it Democratic Socialists. Working People not billion as healthcare for all educational opportunities. Chopstick we have the best known socialists. In the country happens to be a millionaire with three houses. But I miss here. Well you'll still work in Washington housewives. The first problem live in Burlington House too. That's good and like thousands of other Vermont. Subba cap to give me for that whereas your home which talks which tax haven New York New York City. Thank you very much on my taxes. And I'm happy to do it because I get something for. Bloomberg also drew negative reaction from the audience for his comments on releasing his tax retur variously transparency Mayor Bloomberg. Your campaign has said that he would eventually release your tax records when it comes to transparency but people are already voting now why should Democratic voters have to wait? It just takes us a long time unfortunately or fortunately fortunately I make a lot of money and we business all around the world and we are preparing. The number of pages will probably be the thousands of pages. I can't go to turbo tax but I put up my tax return every year for twelve years in City Hall. We will put out this one. It says tells everybody everything they need to know about every investments that I make and where the money goes and the biggest item is all the money I give away and we list that every single donation I make and you can get that from our from our foundation anytime you want. And this was Bloomberg's response to whether he supported Senator Bernie Sanders proposal. That would require all large companies to turn over up to twenty percent of their ownership to employees overtime absolutely not. I can't think of a ways that would make it easier for Donald Trump to get reelected and listening to this conversation ridiculous. We're not going to throw out capitalism. We tried that other countries tried that was called Communism and it just didn't work again. That was an answer that actually agreed with. There was some people who said that's not the answer you given a Democratic primary. That it's an answer you would give if you were in the actual campaign against president trump but that was the one that really resonated with me with. Yeah okay. Honest answer on that part of Ari Fleischer on twitter last night tweet aways going on saying that. He couldn't fathom how the whole Party that nobody in the party when they're asking their capitalism everybody's there with the exception maybe of Mayor Bloomberg I think Amy Klobuchar also said that she was a capitalist of believe in capitalism. But you know you know how everybody gone mad that this is just not what it is but by the way I mean Look Bernie. Sanders calls himself a socialist. Whether it's a democratic socialist or whatever you WANNA call the it's strange led a little bit of circa firing squad feel for me or someone said a gun fight in a lifeboat or something like that. But but what what I'm coming to realize is that Bernie is in the stage. Yep He's got grassroots. He Does Sport. And these people are gonNA turn out and if he just keeps winning and winning and winning. I don't know what you do. There's a difference between the democratic establishment and millions of of Democrats. That are voting for him. And you can't just say no. We don't like the way this looks so we don't like our prospect and who knows what the prospects really are. You never knew. He may have some people think he might one four years ago if he so. I've always been a Bernie Bro and BRO now. Well no Birdie Bro. If I had to pick I'm not sure at this point I immediately came in and I said to you this morning. What else you got sick Bernie because you think that makes it better or ascribe any type of weird and just let's is beyond her hand in a while snow but seriously that's the sixty came up. You got anything got anybody else you got it. We're shoulders Howard Schultz. Is he done? He's definitely divall Patrick and he come back and Bloomberg's campaign seemed to acknowledge his difficulty with this last night. I think he got better at the end to answer at the end was a fairly strong answer. His campaign said he's just warming. I mean the. What's the the reason the night? By the way do you know Neil Patel? We've had on the program. The rights that that Bloomberg is the gap that Bloomberg's performance the gap between an influence or marketing campaign and putting an actual product in front of reviewers. And I thought that captured beautifully Ashley happening here and I think it is online he. He's you know if you had sixty billion dollars you really do start thinking that you just might us man and when it comes to the woman whatever you want to say it but when it comes down when when the rubber meets the road you really do have to debate and you need to be good and fast and strong and all those things none of which and I started feeling. Sorry for he did. Have everybody coming after is not something we really happy. Start Feeling. Sorry for him. But there's an old adage in its most Jewish things don't ever feel sorry for someone has a Gulfstream jet. You just never never feel sorry for someone who has a g six V you just. Shouldn't I mean there could be things that happened? They can always fall. But you still felt sorry for. It'd be because as you know and I've said it a million times. Maybe he's not a great debater isn't clearly but if you look at what? I what he did in the city in the public sector and then the private sector. We're different we're different on what we think is competent and a nanny. State to me is competent. Well no no. Other major initiatives took it was. Well run under Giuliani to look at him now than in your eyes. I mean you think he's like a lunatic. Look let's just leave it at Bernie Bro- stick with that. He's in the center. He's at fifty eight percent. Something on League dictums on CNBC earlier. This week I don't know if it was yesterday the day before and I guess. He said that he thinks. Bernie Sanders bigger threat to the markets. Then they'd run a virus and your lights night's performance. You wonder if there's anybody who's GonNa stop along the way but the market and took the Marlboros. Go UP THE STRONGER. He gets because he's a could be another McGovern. I'm not I'm not coming out of my no. Well we know what you think but put the markets aside. Let's Talk Real Economy Bernie Sanders. Wins Your CEO in America. You're see on America's because this to me is really to one thing Mike Bloomberg was right about okay. Bernie can't win but no I'm saying if Bernie wins I think that every ceiling American not to Bernie San monkeys flat out of my reread to leave the set. Look by the way people can carry where he says the same thing trump right and even even two months before he won. People would don't really you don't really think that's the same thing. No I'm not saying it's health your honest opinion of what is Bernie's if you had to bet all your money on what. What are his chances for winning? Is it twenty five percent? Do you think it's that high winning? In general winning in the general we in the journey and the general third no more than you think a third see. I think that's I don't think it's a third what was weird less gets overwhelming at all. No I think it's I think in becomes very what would there have to be more. I don't know what would happen. He'd have to be the nominee and something else anyway. Joining us right now with reaction to last night's debate pollster and political strategist frank. Bunce FRANK WANNA get your action to all of this. I think the whole night was challenging moment. I WANNA take you back to two thousand twelve when Rick. Perry was moving three or four points a week in the race against Mitt Romney. He participates in the first debate. And he's destroyed and it ends his candidacy. I think Mike Bloomberg we will look back at this debate potentially as the beginning of the end because he did not come across as prepared and more importantly I don't think captured the tone of the audience that he doesn't understand that there are more women than men who are Democrats that they don't like this Aggressive behavior and I don't think in Blooberg defense of capitalism against socialism. He doesn't realize that. So many Democrats prioritize socialism over Frank. I WanNa ask you about the preparedness issue. Because he I know we'll say he only got into this campaign ten ten weeks ago but he's been preparing for this for a very very long time. How could he not have been more prepared? Well and what were the right answers to some of these questions? Well I so I want viewers to know that I did work for Bloomberg in two thousand one and back then. He doesn't like language. He doesn't like debates he doesn't like that. Kinda give and take that's not what he's about. The problem is it's what the Democrats are about and he should've known that these candidates who are going to take him on frankly. I don't know what the response is for the challenge about the nondisclosure agreements in terms of capitalism vs socialism. He's GonNa Remember. You should know that. The average Democrat is working class. The average Democrat is middle income and having a capitalism vs socialism debate among the average Democrat. Bloomberg's GonNa lose that and Bernie Sanders and the reason why is leading right now is going to win that contest. Frank do you believe Bloomberg will follow through on his promise to spend another half a billion dollars defeating Donald Trump on one of these people that just you know completely eviscerated him last night. Have you think once he realized you just said maybe it's the beginning of the end of his candidacy? He sees it. He's not going to be the candidate. Will he follow through and spend another four or five hundred million dollars on somebody else well? He's not done because we still have a South Carolina debate coming up and Super Tuesday. If you look at the state by state polling Bloomberg is actually taken the lead in some of these states doesn't if you said that it's probably the beginning of the end it was. Do you believe he will follow through and spend his money to defeat? Donald Trump by backing Bernie sanders or the eventual nominee is. Do you believe he'll do? I think Mike Bloomberg will have a problem backing Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren because he simply disagrees with them ideologically on their economic last night's performance by Elizabeth. Warren puts her back in the game in a way that she might not have been just Twenty four hours ago. I'm going to surprise you but my answer is no because I don't like Democrats attacking Democrats they want you to focus on donald trump but that's what Bernie Sanders has been doing so successfully and he seems to be the runner. And that's exactly. Why is the Front runner and Elizabeth Warren Attacking Buddha judge as well as Bloomberg? I don't think that sits well with the average Democrat. I'm will tell you know. Sandra has been attacking his his competitors in this race. No He's been speaking clearly and loudly and pronounce way in a position that for the center of the Democratic Party. And they like what he's saying and he is going to trump more than the rest of them I think last night was a good good debate night for Sanders because he clearly articulated a point of view that none of you may agree with but for the center of the Democratic Party. Remember this is not the center of America for the center of the Democratic Party Bernie. Sanders speaks to them. He's emotional he's passionate and it's the reason why he's now the front runner and what we got to run but what happens if if he is the nominee against trump given what you know given what okay. What are your odds for the first time ever ever on a TV program? I will say that trump will have the narrowest of advantages narrowest inch. Yes that's all that's all this going to be a brawl. It's going to be ugly selection ever and even though centers outside the mainstream the press will protect him. The media does not want trump elected. It will come down to election day. Okay Frank clots with an interesting perspective. Great to see this morning. Thank you thank

"I'm Anthony Davis The US Senate narrowly rejected democratic demands to summon witnesses for Donald Trump's impeachment trial yesterday all but ensuring trump's acquittal fill in just the third such trial to face a president in US history but senators considered pushing off final voting on his fate to next week the votes on allowing new witnesses was defeated. Fifty one forty nine on a near Party line vote. Republican Susan Collins of Maine and Mitt Romney of UTAH. voted along with the Democrats witnesses. But that was not enough despite the Democrats singular focus on hearing you testimony. The Republican majority brush. Pass those demands to make this the first impeachment trial without witnesses even new revelations from former National Security Adviser John Bolton did not not swayed. Gop Senators who said they'd had enough that means the eventual outcome for trump will be an acquittal in name only said Representative Val demings Cummings House prosecuted during the final debate.

Pence to focus on US Iran policy in speech

"The increasingly intriguing question of what did the vice president know. And when did he we know it. Yes the vice president. In the midst of this very high stakes increasingly scary escalation between N- The US government and the nation of Iran were millions of people filled the streets today for the funeral of Qassem Soleimani was essentially seen as the second ranking official in that country. Second most powerful position in that country at least Soleimani was killed in the US air strike last week today. The trump administration announced. What's that they will soon have a public explanation for? What exactly they're doing? And what exactly they're thinking when it comes to Iran but the whole idea. is in terms of explaining their actions and their strategy toward Iran in the wake of this targeted killing now. This explanation from the trump administration as to what their strategy is for Iran. This explanation from the administration is not gonNA come for another week or so and it will not be president trump who gives the country this explanation the critical matter of the utmost and deadliest urgency. They'RE GONNA put off this explanation about what's going on between the US and Iran until next week and it's going to be vice president Mike Pence who gives the speech that is supposed to lay out. US policy toward Iran. And what exactly is going on. And what the strategic not gic thinking was behind this killing of this incredibly revered figure inside Iran why they think the country should wait a a week to get that explanation why it should be vice president. Mike Pence who gives that explanation to US rather than the president himself that remains to be seen. But if the the idea is that there might be less impeachment baggage trailing around after Vice President Mike Pence than there is after president trump and therefore maybe vice president pence might have of a sort of cleaner shot at this issue in the public's mind well maybe that's not true. The question of Vice President Mike Pence is Owned implication in the impeachment scandal is both unresolved and that was sort of back on the front burner. It has been nineteen days since the House voted to impeach president trump for trying to get Ukraine to help him out against Joe Biden for the two thousand twenty election. He wanted announcement from Ukraine that they had Biden under investigation. Impeachment inquiry also found that president trump pressured Ukraine to do that to make that announcement about those investigations by making contingent tinge on the announcement of those investigations. A whole bunch of things that Ukraine wanted including a White House visit for their new president. The impeachment inquiry also found that president trump held up military aid to Ukraine for months while he pressured them to do this domestic political favor for him. I honestly can't believe it's only been one thousand nine days Since the house impeach trump doesn't feel like it's been nineteen months it's been nineteen days and in that brief period in the less than three weeks weeks it has been since he got impeached. We've continued to get new evidence and new information about the scheme for which the president was impeached including a reported communication from the Office of Management and Budget in the White House to a Pentagon official in which the White House official assured. Dod It was president trump personally who was insisting on holding up Ukraine's military aid and a communication reported by Cape Brennan Adjust Security. That ownby official tells tells the Defense Department quote Clear Direction from Portis inning president of the United States to hold the Ukraine aid since the the House vote to impeach president trump. We've also seen new evidence in new documentation of this intense conflict and intense concern within the administration shen that president trump ordering a hold on that military aid to Ukraine was in fact illegal. So here for example is that same defense official who just assured by the the White House that the money was being withheld on direct orders from the president. Here's that same defense official writing thereafter to the office of the Secretary of Defense to the Defense Secretary's chief of staff she says quote do you believe dod is adequately protected from what may happen as the result of the Ukraine obligation. Pause as in. We all know this is illegal. Are we prepared for what's going to happen to us at the Defense Department here if we do this illegal thing that has been directly ordered by the president. So here's what's fascinating in response to that email which was sent from somebody in the Pentagon controller's office to the Defense Secretary's chief of staff are we adequately protected from what may happen as as a result of this right in response to that email to the defense secretary's chief of staff the Defense Secretary's Chief of staff writes back and he says this quote Ukrainian. PM speaks with the vice. President of the United States. Veep Otis on Tuesday. We expect the issue to get resolved that. Why do you expect the issue to be resolved that in fact the Tuesday following that email September first vice president and Mike Pence did meet with the leader of Ukraine? They met in Europe. They met in Warsaw. That's where we got this incredible footage of that room and who was there were you can see all of these people in that room whose careers have blown up and whose lives have changed a lot as a result the result of this scandal. You can see them all in the same shot. I mean in that meeting on the American side of the room. There's Energy Secretary Rick. Perry who of course suddenly submitted his resignation right right as the scandal broke open right next to him is national security adviser John Bolton who also suddenly submitted his resignation right as the scandal broke open right right next to the same row. There's ambassador Gordon Sunland. Who became a star witness in the impeachment inquiry testifying under oath that? Oh yes there was a quid pro quo and it was ordered by President trump. Just behind him in the second row there's Jennifer Williams who was the top Ukraine adviser to Vice President Pence who also became a star impeachment inquiry witness also in that same row. Tim Morrison the top Russia expert on the National Security Council who then himself suddenly announced his resignation on the eve of him also becoming an impeachment inquiry witness and next to him back there in the corner national security official named Earl Matthews who also so work on Ukraine issues who also suddenly left his post as this scandal broke open. I mean who's left within a few weeks of this meeting. In some cases within a few days of this meeting like everybody in that room had their life changed and or their career ended and and now we know from these internal administration documents and communications. That have been revealed in the one thousand nine days since the impeachment vote. We now know that after weeks. Six of freak out inside the administration over president trump holding up this military aid after president trump asking questions about that military aid after him directing the holdup up of the aid after him being advised by everybody in the national security apparatus that he himself appointed that he had to let go with hold on the military aid but he still refused to do so after all of the explicit arguments. We know that happened within the administration that to hold up that aid much longer would constitute a criminal act. We now know. I know that after all those weeks and months of consternation and conflict and concern and CYA inside the administration. We know right before vice president pence went and took this meeting at the highest levels of the Defense Department. The chief of staff to the Secretary of Defense was reassuring other officials inside the Pentagon. Oh don't worry. This is going to be over soon when Mike Pence takes that meeting was the Linski on Tuesday. It's all GonNa get sorted. Why do they think it was all going to get sorted? President trump was just impeached for demanding that Ukraine give him investigations into Joe Biden. That would help two minutes twenty twenty reelection effort and conveying to Ukraine. That they wouldn't get there. No much needed military aid until they made that commitment to do those investigations. So you won't get the military aid unless you agree to do those investigations announce publicly. You're doing those investigations are. You're never gonna see that military aid. We now know that in the defense secretaries office. They thought that that would all click into place as soon as this meeting between Mike Prints and the Ukrainian president took place so it was Mike Pence who was supposed to personally get the assurance from the Ukrainian government at that meeting that they were going to announce the investigations. Because that was the deal right. That's what everybody was waiting. They can't get the military aid until they announced the investigations. Don't worry they'll be able to get the military aid as soon as Mike Pence has that meeting. And that's what they were waiting on right at least according to the chief of staff to the Secretary of defense man man. Whose name is Eric Tuning? He put it in writing. Don't worry this will. All End. Wants Mike Pence takes that meeting. So says Eric Tuning Defense Secretaries Chief of Staff Eric. Tuning the defense secretary staff has just suddenly resigned his job his resignation announced today on the same day that former national security adviser John Bolton again is right there in the room for that meeting and again resigned suddenly without much explanation right right in the middle of the scandal right. As the Ukraine aid was finally being released and the whistleblower complaint was finally being processed and heading toward Congress John Bolton today released a statement saying if he is subpoenaed in the impeachment trial of president trump. He will appear and testify all the Senate is now back in accession. We don't yet know how the Senate is going to proceed with the impeachment trial for President Trump but obviously John Bolton's declaration that he will testify if summoned. He will will testify at the president's impeachment trial in the Senate if they send him a subpoena obviously raises the stakes on the Republican efforts in the Senate to try to a whole the impeachment trial without hearing from any witnesses

play this clip and I'm gonna see if you go nuts if your head explodes here's Rick Perry on fox and friends talking about the president of the United States god used the imperfect people all through history king David one perfect us all what perfect Solomon one perfect and I actually gave the president little one pager on those Old Testament kings about a month ago and I shared with him I said Mr president I know there are people that say you know you you said you were the chosen one and and I said you were I said if if you're a believing Christian you understand god's plan for the people who rule and and and and judge over us on on this planet in our in our government have you had it's ready to explode but if you're really ready to explore hi Mary tell me well because I I mean why would anyone say that and risk you know ridicule and and come on really god chose Donald Trump yeah that's the reaction law and I says well how you believe in god what science now I've seen a a reaction of basically is the character merry was just playing all weekend long there's every just people going absolutely crazy anti trump figures tweeting I'm old enough to remember when Rick Perry called trump a cancer on conservatism ana Navarro who's always good for a quote like this but Rick Perry's the latest is the trump is the chosen one it looks like a cult it walks like a called it quacks like a call tied in a cold sweat yes people trump's base is a called in on of ours who was it who said they were old enough to remember when Rick Perry didn't like trump Mehdi Hassan yeah I'm old enough to remember when Barack Obama was against gay marriage so there you go Mr people change their opinions on things but you know it it's weird to these people that Rick Perry would say something like that but it's so weird to me it's not weird to me because I don't know about you merry but that so many points in my wife for I've looked and I said you know why am I here in this moment specifically why am I here in this job specifically why do I have you know this family specifically them this daughter this wife it's better and and all the answer to that is often what god chose this moment for me got to theirs you know that that's a reasonable opinion that reasonable people have but it gets blown up into that brick Perry thinks of trump as a god like figure now that's not what he said you're distorting what he said right explicitly to make it seem bad when he said something perfectly wholesome yeah listen I in and I and I I don't look at myself and think of it that way but I I do look at certain historical figures and all say well you know is the view you can't deny that there may have been some divine intervention here we hear it all the time with our founding fathers with George Washington who believed that this was pre ordained that his role in history was pre ordained and that he had a role to play and because of he was doing what he was supposed to do that he felt the planet god put out for him he was successful because of that but also like even even like the the bad people and in life people who've occupy the presidency who weren't that people don't do that to some extent that this is part of god's plan to like confront the trials and tribulations of having a bad president right maybe now yes is the answer you can all not yes yes yes not in or has it been Lucas is looking at you and he ate not not all but I I think listen I I do think for some historical figures there absolutely eat maybe some divine intervention and I look back again to the revolutionary war and I look at some of the things that happened to the weather and things like that that helped them win certain battles are gave them cover for certain battles and things that went their way but then you look on the other side of and there were some things didn't go their way at all and they were supposed to but ultimately the outcome was the right outcome George Washington firmly believed that who am I to tell George Washington who was wrong look what he did right so I'm I don't don't tell her Russian and George into it so it's so I I I I think that there are certain points in time where you have to look back and go wow what what other explanation is there for it other than some kind of divine intervention yeah and lock it this whole thing too you know I thought Rick Perry was perfectly fine of course on on fox this weekend yeah but this whole thing you're like you know trump supporters are called well it's kind of a weird call I'll give you a number of reasons why one how many calls have sixty three million members that's a lot of members to become like you graduate from call to something much bigger right up also how often have you spoken to trump's worth which Phoenicians worth a lot and one of the fit what we hear from some supporters is it like just totally unfettered joy and adulation for the guy and he's the god emperor everything he does is right now it's not like that at all in fact most observers and are like I don't like this about the guy he tweets too much ice a flawed guy but I like him way better than his opponents yeah I I I is that a cult no that is not the here's the thing you know I think they believe some wacky stuff too but if I say it I'm shut down because they're fascists so I'm not allowed to say that some of the things that they believe is wacky but if you believe in god and you say it they they're all over you in a heart beat right so what else are chanting shame in unison you don't have any like that's

Despite Bankruptcy And Illness, Bob Murray Remains A Loud Voice For Coal

"Into Bob Murray's Corner Office in Saint Clair's Ville Ohio feels like stepping back in time. Mr Brady's here Murray wears dark suit jacket with a silk handkerchief poking out of the pocket he sits behind a large dark wood desk. Nice to meet to. Oh Murray returns eighty years old in January and his less steady on his feet than it used to be. He suffers from lung disease but says it's not related to years of working underground in coal minds. There's constant hissing sound in his office. That's the Oxygen Murray needs debris he says three hospitals have rejected him for a lung transplant. Because because of history of strokes not on my fighting for my own life. But I'm fighting for the life of my employees. My company Murray's is recent bankruptcy comes after a long career. He began as a minor then built his own company. Eventually with seven thousand employees. Natalie Biggs is a coal industry three analyst with Wood Mackenzie so a lot of coal companies had Undergone bankruptcy and around Twenty fifteen twenty sixteen and Murray was one of the ones sounds that actually kind of made it through that period and was able to purchase a lot of assets off the back of that or bankruptcy boom big says Murray energy took on debt as the the coal market continued to decline and bankruptcy. Murray says he'll lose ownership of his company. Some of his unionized workers may lose healthcare and pension benefits benefits and the filing is a political loss for president trump. We have ended the war on American energy and we have ended. Ah The war on beautiful. Clean Coal Bob. Murray has had the trump administration's ear. He drafted an action implant. Help coal than delivered it to Energy Secretary Rick Perry photos from the meeting. Show the two men hugging while trump rolled back some environmental regulations. On Murray's is list the administration was not able to deliver the subsidies for coal plants. That Murray wanted he argues that Cole. With fuel stored on site is more reliable. The a natural gas that's piped in and renewable energy that depends on the sun and wind still. Coal is losing market share to these cheaper and cleaner ways of generating being electricity murray argues that makes the electric grid less reliable. But all of a sudden one of these days you'll be hearing about on NPR about this power grid failure and people are going to become alarmed and all of a sudden they don't forget this nonsense called Climate Change Murray predicts that will come during a winter storm and that people will freeze to death. Frankly this is just a scare tactic. Tactic Marianne hit with the Sierra Club. Says there are smart. People running the country's power grids they take into account every coal plant closing and make sure the grid remains remains reliable. Empty promises about bailing out coal plants or reviving the fortunes of the coal industry are just distracting our country from from the real work we need to be doing hit. Says that is moving. The country away from coal and toward cleaner Renewable Energy Murray's climate denial and call boost booster. ISM are evidence of a key element of his personality once. He's concluded he's right about something Murray doesn't give in. Here's another example of that at twelve years ago Murray Energy made news for a tragic mind collapse in Utah that trapped six workers or singing my life I take it obviously to my grave. Demand were never located and ten days later. Three rescuers died as another section of the mine collapsed. A government report concluded there were flaws in the mind design. Murray's company was find more than a million dollars for safety violations yet even today Murray Denies Responsibility. A lot of blame being pointed in the end I was correct. It was an earthquake seismologists at the University of UTAH. Say say. That's just not true. The earthquake was the result of the mind collapsing even now as he struggles for breath just walking across the room. Murray is still oh pushing for what he believes. As company was preparing for bankruptcy Murray delivered a speech in West Virginia calling on federal regulators to subsidize coal. Aw and keep his industry alive.

Who Is John Eisenberg? Trump Lawyer Moved Ukraine Transcript to Classified Server After Vindman Complained

"And today house democrats have released transcripts of the testimony given by former US s. ambassador to ukraine maria vich and former state department official michael mckinley we will be following that but meanwhile a top lawyer for the national security council counsel john eisenberg is a no show today for a scheduled deposition on capitol hill to find a subpoena an escalating the white house's legal battle with congressional democrats let's eisenberg is a key witness for the impeachment inquiry he reportedly was instrumental and locking down the transcript of president trump's july twenty fifth phone call with ukrainian union president by moving it to top secret server so let's learn more about who eisenberg is and his role in this whole saga tom hamburger is is an investigative political reporter for the washington post and tom last week alexander van men the top ukraine advisor at the white house testified that he listened in on that call where president trump asked the president of ukraine to investigate the biden's and vinson said he raised concerns to the white house's top national security lawyer earlier john eisenberg what was eisenberg's response according to your reporting so what we learned about colonel benjamin's testimony to the a house impeachment investigators is is this he was alarmed as he listened to president trump's call with ukraine's president on july twenty five so unnerved that he went immediately after listening to the call to see john eisenberg the white house legal adviser on national security parity to tell him that what the president did was wrong that it seemed to be violating US policy and seemed to be seeking a personal sola political favors from foreign leader he testified that he went to eisenberg's office because he was alarmed by what he had heard on the call and and the only response that he offered during the meeting right after the call was that the roughed transcript of the call the summary of the call should be placed in an unusual usual spot that is the highly classified top secret vault i'm usually reserved for documents that would reveal sources and methods for US intelligence awesome military operations not for presidential call transcripts in fact we're told it's unheard of or virtually unheard of for for such a call to be placed on a classified server like that so that was one step another was a couple of days after the conversation eisenberg approached vitamin again and said i'd like you not to talk to anybody about what we discussed and what you observed in the call again a by itself perhaps there's an innocuous explanation for this but in combination with a couple of other factors that we're talking about here it seemed seemed to some is though it was part of a pattern or could have been part of a pattern or an effort to conceal or berry the substance of the president's conversation with his counterpart in ukraine you also write that by the time vin men came to eisenberg and late july eisenberg was already familiar with concerns among white house awesome officials about the administration's attempts to pressure ukraine for political purposes what did he know and why is this important to note eisenberg was aware of concerns from the national security staff because a couple of weeks earlier on july ten presidents alinsky had sent a delegation of ukrainian indian officials to the white house to try to shore up relations with the US they couldn't figure out why it seemed there was a delay in getting face as to face meeting set up between the newly elected president and president trump and there was some concerns about whether legally mandated a military aid would be flowing to the ukraine and so they came to the white house these two emissaries end-july ten and had a meeting with the national security council staff but also with three other they're individuals one is a special envoy appointed by president trump mr samland another was energy secretary rick perry and the third was a special on on void to ukraine volcker and in the course of meeting with this group those three led by sandra fund seemed to be pushing a request for assistance in getting information that might be helpful to the president politically the conversation was a bit subtle but it so alarmed armed john bolton in this meeting that they had on july ten that he quickly called it to a close and then he later asked one of his associates the national security advisor sir for ukraine to report what was observed to legal office and so the the place that those bolton advisers went was once again john eisenberg so on july ten there was the first warning of an executive branch effort this time not involving the president personally but involving some of his top appointees to seemingly introduce a question of seeking political favors from the new ukrainian administration as a condition for getting a meeting meeting with president or getting needed aid has eisenberg or his lawyer responded to any of this eisenberg has so so far declined to comment and the white house has declined to comment the response that we have is really the response that is visible today on capitol hill which is where in the impeachment investigators hoped john eisenberg would be sitting to answer questions there will be an empty chair eisenberg is another of several figures at the top level of advisors to the president who are declining to respond to subpoenas and request testify in this impeachment inquiry and so he is one of these figures who is now part of this constitutional drama that we're witnessing between the demands of the legislative branch and the claims of special privilege by the white house in the office of the president and those other folks michael ellis also of the national security council as well as robert blair and brian mccormick of the white house office of management and budget they're all skipping this meeting as you said these meetings what will the the democrats do next now that these folks have decided not to testify so there are others who are facing request to testify who are even more senior one is john bolton the research resigned recently as national security adviser he remember is the guy who is at the top of this national the security establishment and in a sense the buck stops with him he would be a critically important witness and his testimony is considered vital so much to a follow that's tom hamburger investigative political reporter for the washington post tom thank you so much good to be with you

"Rick Perry. The Friday forum to different people from watts of judge David browse, he Rick SMS, the president of the Wisconsin. It's too for long. Liberty tease it a little bit before the break. I'm going to go to you. I judge because in the democratic mix right now are about twenty one candidates potentially. And of course, the big famous one is Joe Biden and let let me ask you about Joe Biden. I what ultimate what do you think is going to do? And what do you make of these allegations that the guy's got a bit of a creep factor to let's put it that way. Well, there are places on the internet, apparently where if you Google creepy uncle Joe, you'll find photos and videos of Joe Biden, putting his hands on women shoulders or whispering in their ear or kissing them on the head, which is rather odd behavior. Real quick. I had the fortune of meeting with the vice president Joe Biden about six times worked with him of gun violence stuff. Great public servants. I don't agree with them on a lot of the. Oh, the politics, but he was always a guy that was respectful. He's a different kind of animal. He's a guy. That's very physical. He grew up in an era where maybe that was okay. And I think I think most of us most reasonable rational people would say, you probably can't do that anymore. This is something that's going to blow up his candidacy. I don't know if it'll blow up his candidacy for this reason. I think you really for the Democrats last concerts twenty one or twenty two Democrats running you really only have three or four legitimate candidates, those candidates in your Joe, Biden, Bernie Sanders Kamala Harris after that, you know, maybe Liz worn. But I think she's pretty much toast. Even though we're a year out for most of the primaries. Because the rest of the field is so fragmented. I mean, you have the one that stands out for me is the mayor of south bend. Indiana is Pete Buddha Buddha gig. Jay. The mayor of south bend, Indiana. He's running apparently because he's gay and he thinks it's that their issues that are important to him or to the nation that he can address that other people can't. But being the mayor of self in Indiana's the equivalent of being the mayor of Sheboygan, it doesn't qualify you to be president of the United States say he's not ready for prime. He's not ready for even off time or part time. He's got a lot of buzz though. Well, but one of the things that helps the three or four legitimate candidates is we've gone from an era in television over last two three or four decades of broadcasting to narrowcasting candidates that are narrowcasting you have the hooligan Castro who's apparently after the Latino vote you have Baidoa work who's probably the other legitimate top four top candidate. You have the mayor of south bend Indiana there. So splintered that people at all just be fuzz, and you can only focus on the two or three people whose names have been out there before who are going to have money, Bernie, raise I think it was forty million or forty five million in the course of a month or two it's going to be one of those three. It's an interesting thing because the Republicans had sixteen candidates, and what happened is that you wind up with Donald Trump. Who want women ammunition was contested? Generally got about thirty five percent of the vote. He got less than Bernie Sanders. But because the Republican party had rules that were designed to produce a early winner. He was able to divide and conquer. And we had this remarkable thing happened that I never would have thought could happen. Now, the Democrats are going to have the same nine amick. But I think that their rules a little bit different in that they they award or more likely to ward delegates proportionately so could we could we see for the first time? And I don't know when an actual convention selecting the nominee in Milwaukee summer and twenty twenty it could happen. I wanna ask you as an attorney the Biden stuff. What do you make of this? These allegations is this real just manufactured. What is well. You know? I mean, he's. He's kind of inappropriate and Joe Biden. You know, I talked to my fellow conservatives about Joe Biden. No, we're worried about Joe Biden because Joe Biden, you know, isn't this crazy lefty like, you know, the the other seem to be burning and bay betas. I don't know what. Baidu is. He's a manufacturing going. Yeah. Yeah. He is. And but remember that, you know, Biden's run for president before in Biden is kind of goof. You know, he's he's he's crazy. Uncle joe. And this is one of the things he does the other things he does sort of Bork's out ridiculous things. And I don't know that Joe Biden news any better suited to run a national campaign now than he was when he tried and failed before let's shift since I got to scholars in the room for the Friday forum. Rick s Aberg judge David Broschi house admission scandal answer the question during the break. Rick if. At least the two women. I don't wanna just pick on the women. There's thirty eight or thirty nine other people involved in this case could they go to jail for what this what the charges are against them for this cheating their way their kids into college. Well, I mean, I'd be interested in judge Brodsky's perspective on this. But you know, in the Justice system when you have the money to hire really, really good lawyers. You're always going to have an advantage, some of the more famous actress types, you know, our our might be able to portray themselves as sympathetic characters. But the problem here is that, you know, this is essentially a financial crime. It was people using their money to gain an unfair advantage. And it's hard for me to see how you punish that by taking a little bit more money away from them because it will never be enough. It's not gonna listen. You Hoffman is not going to really be punished because you find her because got lots and lots and lots. Money. And maybe the only thing you can do to send a message here and to respond to you know, what was a crime that not only is wrong in and of itself. But it has a it has a larger public impact because it reinforces the notion that privileged people don't have to play by the wolves that the rest of us play by and they got a new revelation. That's always been the case. It's not. But this was this was really pretty blatant. I mean, this is just being able to hire better tutors, or, you know, have a better school district. I mean, this is basically using your money to cheat. And why and so I think a judge I would think a judge has got to respond to that. And I don't know how a judge does that without you know, ordering a period of confinement way think well, I agree with that certainly with most of the players in this case the possibility that they're convicted. And someone suggests probation and a two hundred and fifty thousand dollar fine. Wouldn't matter. It's not a deterrent. The problem is it does send the message to the community. When I save the entire country that not only are the rich getting all kinds of benefits that the rest of us. Don't have. But then they're cheating on top. As Rick said, the kids of these people, listen Huffman and others. They already have every benefit in the world. They're going to the best high schools. They can have the best tutors. They have every advantage you could possibly have. But then to have an aunt remember. This was Felicity Huffman specifically, but one of the people that was involved in this allegedly had their son signed up as a recruit at USC football bites back this high school did not have a football team right now that takes quite a bit of chutzpah to pull that kind of thing off. I also personally was never I guess I'm surprised that USC was one of the schools at the center of this nothing against you. But it's not Harvard. It's not Yale. On the field and inside the clubhouse. This is brewers extra innings. Bouncer hit right side. This over. Claudio comes on final score thirteen. Ten brewers for billboard ears. Mad folly? Goodwin for the brewers. They just keep winning. They.

"And it's bad. Somebody told me. What's that? I hear I hear they're taking the house gotta run along. Now. We can't afford not to do this. Mike. Whatever holding the open for you need to scurry alone. I I'm puzzled by people who say, hey, sandy how much is this gonna cost and I'm Reich. All like, you know, whatever. Yeah. There was audio of the Rick Perry. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Tune on giving her some time. Yes. Yes. I've changed sector. Good idea. Thank you. Rick. Thank you. Rick perry. Right there. She's great. She's going to be just a joy and delight to me. For at least the next year and a half, and then hopefully, she's defeated in a primary triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three and I think that's entirely I think so too. I think that is very possible Vichy's. They don't toes already gosh. And especially Nancy Pelosi. She's ruined her return to the speakership. Right. Oh, instead of just having total control over her party in the house. She's having to deal with these radicals like AO, see Alon, Omar in tha leave she's having to put all the right? And she doesn't want to. She doesn't want to be weighed done by that kind of crap. That was that's deal with the saying that tonight impeach right? It's way trying to grab the power back and say, look, I'm in charge. Yeah. Yeah. We're not doing it. The other day, Liz Cheney Republican from Wyoming. Talked about the democrat party. And what the party is all about. Now, this is really good stuff. And I I wish more Republicans would be more forward in talk about what the Democrats have become here. She is. Overall message with them. You and a half months. Our they become party. Anti semitism already. Yes. It is over sticker time. Wow. That's good anti-semitism and fantasize spelled it out. No nonsense. No equivocating. You know, we to be nice and call them. Well, there's some ideas that are maybe no hot. No. She just stated the facts, Andy semitism, infanticide socialism. And seriously Canadian buddy dispute, that's what they're all about. They will. But that's what they're about. Meanwhile, Andrew Young who I think Keith is not your guy. Yeah. This is the one you're really kinda rooting for for twenty twenty. I don't know that bruting four him from a. Just screw everything up type point. So he was talking about white Americans losing power. And I guess how upset white Americans will be about that. Here's what he said. Hello everyone. Thank you so much being here. I'm Andrew Yang. I'm running for president United States in twenty twenty as a democrat. So now that I'm running for president like, I've learned more about the Asian American place in society, and one thing that scares the heck out of me is that this country is heading towards being coming majority minority by twenty forty five twenty seven years from now scares you or online, so there's a very happy notion in some quarters that the country will just become more tolerant as it gets more diverse religious figure that math will take care of it. Because if you have enough people everyone will just have to get along. Unfortunately, that is not really the way things play out. If you look at historical examples, there are very very few examples in human history of dominant, racial ethnic group. Giving up its dominance over time that actually is not normal normal behavior. And some of you look at what's happening right now in this country. You can see increasingly insecure white majority coming more and more hostile truly. What is going to be positive for a second? There. Increasingly hostile to home. Where have you seen that? I've not seen that I've seen the opposite of that. The minority has been increasingly hostile and placing blame on whites. And that happens every day white privilege, white racism, white income inequality white this white that were blamed for absolute we were blamed for air pollution this week..

"I'm pulling the LeBron ride just pass you the ball back to you. It's like a hot potato who was. It who was that. This is. Oh my God. Simmons would love me. If I get this. Right. I think it was Rick Perry on the warriors. Did that where he is mad? He was mad like they were they won the title. And the next year. They were good and they were supposed to win the title. And then there's a fight in the locker room, and Rick Barry was so petty that he was like it was like game seven or something. He was like fuck all of you. I'm not shooting in the second half. Then. And then he just never shot. And then they lost any like, basically, the should have won the NBA championship. But they didn't because Rick Perry was so petty pride in spite. Those are two tough things having locker room. So we're waiting on Saturday, basically that we're very excited Saturday is going to be be a great day. But there's there's a few things that have happened that we need to talk about the streak is over Tate. We need to do a mortem on the streak. I did crunch. The numbers Kansas has to unload as one of their games with one game remaining to win. So I think they're out. I think it's done the streaks over they cannot go back in time to figure this out. I think my thoughts in general Bill self and the whole Kansas at large is that the fact that they did this in modern times is insane. The fact that we finally have gotten to the end of the streak, and I felt like there was no way that we would ever get to the end of the stream as saying something, I think that Bill self needs a break because Bill self every single year, and this is no knocked to Kansas. No knocked the Lawrence. And I understand what it means to be a blue blood is about to be a knocked Kansas. Go ahead. It does. It does feel like you guys are killing Bill self by expecting him to win thirty five games. There are you? You're taking us out on the fans. The fans win these games team at Kansas has Kansas dog shit, dude. The only reason they're winning winningest because of the fans they'll take it out on the fan. I'm just taking on expectations. Verse reality. This team was a mess and a half before he even took this team to their first game up in Indianapolis when we watch. No. Yeah. There preseason number one in the country. Yes. A mess a mess and a half. I I will say I mean with all the started with Billy Preston mystery some that we covered ad nauseam here on this program. I just I feel like there's a lot going on in the Kansas fear, and I feel like Bill self is having to take a lot of the blame. And I feel like he just needs. A Vic I won't Bill self to get away. I think he needs to take some self time. You know, just get away. Just go to Bermuda. Go to you know, Bahama like come here. Pretty, mama. Whatever the hell he needs to do to get away from the expectations of Adidas and the expectations of Kansas and the expectations of legit Vick. And you know, whatever that situation was I mean as bouquet when he went down their season was over in my mind. I mean, he was there cooler you're saying this is a good thing for Kansas moving. I'm saying. Team reset. Yes. Like next year. Maybe there's not as much pressure because you don't have to distribute life window. Now this year is this is the break you have house next. You have two months at the break and the next year if you don't want thirty five games, you're fired. I think what what's funny about the streak is that it it. It didn't feel that impressive. Because you were a hater throughout the streak that can't like this is easy to a hater on the other teams not. But it's almost like beautiful by by the streak snapping it reinforces. How good the streak was. You know, what I mean like they had the preseason or one team in the country, and they couldn't win the big twelve. And then you can now go look how hard it is to win the big twelve..

"Learned energy secretary. Rick Perry is the so-called designated successor. He will not attend for security reasons. Tonight's theme. The White House says is unity and bipartisanship. Not that Democrats are buying it. You're unlikely to here tonight much about the Russia investigation. But I did want to talk to ABC's chief Justice correspondent Pierre Thomas because peer the investigation does loom over whatever agenda the president lays out tonight. Well, it's the proverbial elephant in the room in this sense. The mullahs report is imminent, we believe in. It's coming out in the next few weeks. And we'll find out what is finding are at some point in theory, depending on how much of a gift released, as you know, the attorney general acting attorney general or whoever's in that role will make a decision on how much of that can be released to the public and to congress. I dare say this likely Dobie a fight about how much of it will be released, of course, Democrats will want every detail released others me safety guidelines prevent certain things being released. But this has been an investigation that has dominated Washington for nearly two years now more than thirty indictments of people charge, including some people convicted who are very close to the president of the United States, including his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, his former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort is deputy campaign chairman. Rick gates, his former attorney and fixer Michael Cohen. So as you said, it hasn't been something that's been a part of the administration narrative if you will. So it will be obviously on the minds of people as a watch him deliver the state of the as you go through that list. If nothing else came out, it would still be an incredible result of of that investigative work in yet. There does seem to be a public explanation for more. And we may or may not get that. Well, here's the thing. In all things. I just described one thing that has not done. He is not made any allegation at the president of the United States did in fact collude with Russians. That's if you look at all those charges is not in there. And when this report is finished there may not be that allegation in there. And we have to be mindful that that's a possibility on the other hand, there are things have spun out of the mall investigation, for example, as we just mentioned the Coen investigation, and this whole issue a hush money payments in that case that you covered Erin. The government lays out that a person who we have identified as the president of the United States then candidate Donald Trump they alleged he directed Cohen to take some of the accident. He took. So what will be the result of that? So all his consequential. You mentioned to peer the Democrats and whatever Muller has cooking. The Democrats have more in store for the president. So it's not like this investigation fizzles once Muller's investigative work, obviously, congress can investigate on their own. They have subpoena power. The house has the ability to pursue various avenues of investigation separate and apart from the mod report, but it's fair to say that they're going to want to dissect that report from top to bottom the questions will they be allowed to and if they feel like they don't get sufficient information will they take it to the courts to to get that information. ABC's Pierre Thomas our chief Justice correspondent on the status of the Muller investigation, which we are unlikely to hear much about tonight, but which does loom large over the agenda the president is going to lay out. So let's turn back to the White House would ABC's. Karen Travers, Karen, the president has just arrived. Members of his cabinet are being introduced and his cabinet looks a whole lot different than it did even the last time he gave this speech. It really does. And there are several members of that cabinet. And it was about a third who were in an acting or temporary capacity because there has been so much turnover. As you mentioned energy secretary. Rick Perry has been given to us as the designated survivor, the person that would stay away from the state of the union should something happen. But it was interesting debate all day, and we were talking to some legal experts about whether or not even somebody in the acting capacity could take that spot as a designated survivor some questions about that. But secretary Rick Perry is one of the. Original cabinet members. He gets that honor tonight. ABC's? Karen Travers with us from the White House. Where officials had said the president plans to highlight areas where he believes he can work with Democrats, including infrastructure and prescription drug pricing. He has mentioned those things in each of his two prior speeches to joint sessions of congress to no avail. He has also mentioned the theme of unity before and he did that last year calling upon everyone in the room to set.
