"Reminding people. Give people a little bit of your bio before that, just in case someone is listening in Oklahoma City or Tulsa that wasn't voting when you ran twice statewide successfully. You know, before that, I was a baseball guy. As you know, on the baseball team. And on the triple-A baseball team in Oklahoma City, we were at Texas Rangers affiliate. And so that was a wonderful time. We were Pacific Coast league with branch Ricky's grandson as the head of the Pacific Coast league. And so we had good relationships and still have good relationships and baseball across the country and was an entrepreneur at that time. And then since that time, since I left the administration in 2018, I've been involved in lithium development and carbon offsets and credits and various LNG exports to areas of the world that are impacted by what's going on in Ukraine. And so if you have both areas and boots Romania and the Czech Republic and other places. So I've been focused firsthand from business perspective since I left administration on making sure that American energy was in areas of the world that could benefit from that. So a number of things both since 2018, but also before my time as attorney general. We got less than a minute, Scott Pruitt. If you get into the Senate, will you ask to be on the committee that oversees EPA because you know what the left is doing there since they got it back? Yeah, look, I think the absolutely. And I also say this here. I mean, the regulatory processes that have been abused at the EPA are not unique to that agency. It's really across the federal government. And so there needs to be an accountability, if you will, from Congress, the legislative branch, toward the executive branch. There's too much delegation of authority. The U.S. Senate needs to legislate. Congress needs the legislate not the executive branch. Scott for Oklahoma dot com to be part of the cause, Scott Pruitt for Oklahoma to learn the bio if you don't already know it. Follow him on Twitter at Scott Pruitt okay, follow me to the next summit. Thank you, Scott Pruitt. I'll be right back, America on the Hugh hero chow. Welcome back, America. Here you are live on this 5 5 22 years and years ago. I came off the D.C. circuit went to the Department of Justice and had the great honor and privilege of working for two attorney general. Juan William French Smith, and then add meat. Both of them Californians. And now the later general meats is being honored by pepperdine university the dean of the school of public policy Pete Peterson joins me now. Good morning early to you, Pete up in California. I appreciate your joining me 'cause I just wanna toast you for honoring and me who really is just the definition of public service. Well, we couldn't agree more to you and good morning from Malibu. We're so excited about this week's announcement regarding the new institute for liberty and the American project here at the graduate policy school. Tell us about that institute, how did it come to be named for general meese and is it going to be able to join you for the opening? Yeah, so the background is really super interesting. A couple who have been affiliated with pepperdine actually both pepperdine alums have been working internationally for about ten years, returned to the United States and went through that process that we're hearing more and more of sending their kids into school that was teaching them some rather woke and ideological things. And realized how much their country had changed while they had been out of the country. With that, they had reached out to pepperdine and wanted to discuss a large gift that would create an institute that would defend America's founding principles. And that series of conversations began about a year and a half ago and came to a point where they have made a $10 million commitment to create the institute. Now, after they had made that initial commitment within a few months, they said, you know, our name doesn't have to be on the institute itself. Wow. Help create awareness to what you're doing there at pepperdine in the graduate policy school. Let's think about another name. And so that began the series of discussions and deliberations to find the name of someone who stood for America's founding principles and their relevance to today's policy issues and over the course of a few months. We explored several different options considered a few different options. But general meese has had an affiliation with pepperdine going back decades. We've given him an honorary degree here at the policy school and through various relationships, particularly Ed fullers, who's on our board here at the policy school. That began the concerted discussions with general meese to discuss with him the possibility of naming this institute for him..

A Brief History on Israel's Day of Remembrance

"The day of remembrance, I always find very moving, even though I'm not Jewish. Tell us about it. It's really the only unique Israeli holiday. Israel Independence Day is celebrated by Jewish communities around the world, but no one really marks Memorial Day the way we remark Memorial Day. The entire country goes into mourning for 24 hours. A siren sounds at 8 o'clock at night and then the next morning at 11 o'clock, the entire country stands still, if you're on the highway cars go up to the side, people stand at attention. We all visit military cemeteries. I was in the military cemetery yesterday. It's deeply moving because we have all lost friends and relatives initial wars. Victims of terror, and we pay homage. We go into this deep morning in the extraordinary thing is that at 8 o'clock at night, the next night, we go immediately into ecstatic celebration of Israel's independence. We go through this one from radical morning to radical to ecstatic celebration, I don't know anything like it.

The Media and Their Abortion Myths

"Abortion dominated the coverage. I commented last night before I went out to the movie that, you know, if you read the elite media and I do every night show prep. It's so deep blue. It's so pro abortion right. You won't get a sense of it. Republicans on cusp of abortion win seek to change the subject. No, they're not. I'm going to play for you in segment three, John thune on the Senate floor. It's best example, but Joni Ernst on this show, you have to say Nikki Haley. We are all proudly pro life. We want to restrict abortion, but do so via state legislatures and not change a single blue state law. That's the bottom line. We're not trying to change the subject. We're happy to campaign on that subject. And if blue states don't want candidates adopting that subject, you will get Republicans like Pete Wilson running in states like that who have always been pro choice. It reflects the federalism of America. This is abortion pills by mail posed challenge for officials in red state. No, they don't. They can't stop those. The interstate commerce clause. Once close allies, Robertson Alito have taken divergent path. No, they have not. They are still together far more than they are apart, and there's no indication that chief justice had did not assign the opinion to Alito. That's a made up of blue bubble media thing.

President Biden Responds to SCOTUS Leak

"Let's go to Joe Biden, cut number 5 in The White House. Change the law saying that children who are LGBTQ can't be in classrooms with other children. Is that legit under the way that the decisions are written? What are the next things that are going to be attacked? Because this mega crowd is really the most extreme political organization that's existed in American history. In recent American history. Let's just unpack that. First of all, put aside the Ku Klux Klan, put aside the Nazi sympathizers, put aside the John birch society, put aside antifa, put aside the January 6 protester, the maga kraut. In reference to the Supreme Court decision by 5 justices, three of whom were nominated by president Trump, all of whom were distinguished jurists long before president Trump came down the escalator as candidate Trump. And of course, the chief justice and clarence Thomas had been on the court for a very long time in justice Alito was a George Bush appointee as well. W Bush appointee. And I'd be sure that that HW Bush, let me George W. Bush appointee. And I'm just here to he came up after Harriet Meyers with withdrawn. So it's cheap justice Roberts than justice Alito. I'm just sure to tell you, the uniter in chief, that's just not true. This is such an over the top comment that, again, it's like the Pope saying NATO is responsible for invading Russia. Maga is the most extreme. And by the way, LGBTQ children, I understand some children so identify, I also understand that no teacher in America would ever separate them and they also understand that that would fail rational basis review. It is the reddest of herrings I have ever heard. It's the stupidest thing I've actually ever heard Joe Biden say.

"Good news in Ukraine is Ukrainian forces retake villages near the city of karke relieving pressure on the city. Russia is just they lost another general where helping them kill the generals. They're up to 12 dead Russian generals. Maybe 13 by now. And they're pushing back and Russia is contemplating a call, not going to be happy about going to the death trap and the death trap tanks. But Russia is falling back in many places. That mean the war isn't over. There's still a much bigger country they still have many more arms. They still have much more money. But we will see. We will see when and if Putin decides enough is enough, I'm not getting my objective here.

Is China Headed Towrds a Revolution?

"Let me move to another part of the world in Shanghai 25 million people are starving. And if anyone doubted and you never did, the ruthlessness that president Xi and his colleagues in the CCP, it's on full display now. Do you think they may be facing the condition? I'm in France where a lack of food led to the 1789 revolution. And we saw lack of food in Russia in 1918 lead to revolution. Do you think China is dancing on the edge of a cliff here with what they're doing in Shanghai? Well, she bragged about his COVID policy after having unleashed the virus on millions of people from the Wuhan lab all across the world. And now he's got a real political problem. And food problem inside of his own century because of what is a crazy zero COVID objective.

Can America Stop Putin From Using Nuclear Weapons?

"Secretary Pompeo, Vladimir Putin has been hinting at the use of nuclear weapons. He's been rattling that cage now for several weeks based on the fact that it looks like he's facing humiliation in large part of Ukraine. There's a lot of warnings about that. President Trump's national security adviser Robert O'Brien wrote a really interesting piece in The Wall Street Journal about what the American response should be in this case. Preemptively as well as potentially post use. What is your perspective on how best to deter Vladimir Putin from unleashing tactical nuclear weapons in Ukraine? The most important thing we can do is and one of the things that ambassador Brian highlighted was that we have to be very clear about the things that we will do. And we need to make damn sure that we are actually prepared to do the things we tell Vladimir Putin that we're going to do.

"Dot com. We will be back and talk to you again when I'm back stateside, general Scott Pruitt, former attorney general Oklahoma. Now can they present it in Oklahoma from her administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency? Scott for Oklahoma dot com. If you want to push back, oh boy, you need to push back with Scott. Scott for Oklahoma, dot com. Good to talk to general doctor of America. I'll be right back from Paris. I have to look to the welcome back America. Here you are from what we call aggrandizement number two. In Paris with radio blogger and Morsi standing by in Texas joined by tarzana Joe, the poet laureate of the U.S. show, good morning, Joe. Good morning, Hugh. In honor of you and Dwayne's excellent vacation, the title of this week's poem is fate a complete. However, I will not be delivering it in a French accent. Oh, too bad. If you're driving toward a precipice or a speeding toward a wall, you would try to slow your progress. You should try to break your fall. When you plant the seed selected in a field and nothing grows, it should lead you to consider guess I shouldn't have planted those. When your house is on the market, but no one will pay the price fixing broken windows in a paint job might be nice. His fastball in his slider may have made you a believer, but the score is ten to nothing. So you call for a reliever. I give you these examples not to be obtuse or arty, but to comprehend the thinking of the Democratic Party. For their speeding toward disaster, if you listen to the news, but there's been no final adjustment to their policies reviews. Taxing new and spending hasn't really worked before. If they get elected, they just promise to do more. Higher oil prices are a platform for inflation shows shutting down the pipelines as their gift to our great nation. Not the slightest waiver in their platforms been detected. How could they be running and appear so unaffected? Now I'm certain all elections are legitimate on the level, but they're running like a party with a contract. With the devil. That's phase a complete my first job. Welcome back America. I'm Hugh Hewitt live from Paris, radio bloggers with me, Dwayne, and in Texas and Morrissey is standing by should we crash and burn. I'm joined by a former Secretary of State former head of the CIA, former member of the House of Representatives now the president of cav pack dot com. Secretary Mike Pompeo, mister Pompeo, welcome back to the talk to mister secretary. You, it's great to be with you this morning. I hope you're having a great time in France. We've actually had a gorgeous week. You know, I know when you're the Secretary of State, you really don't get to enjoy the cities you visit, do you? No, not much. It's mostly work, but it's always great to be there representing America wherever you're traveling. Well, I want to get to the Russian war in a second, but first I saw yesterday even in my remove in Paris that you have endorsed David McCormick, probably in a decisive move in the Pennsylvania Senate race. And David's been on the show a lot. I study neutral in these. Why did Mike Pompeo say we're going in with David McCormick? In every race, I've supported someone out of cap faculty. It's been because I thought they'd be the best leader for America in this case. I'm confident that Dave, he'll be great for the people of Pennsylvania. He's really battle test that he's been through so much. I knew him almost 40 years ago when we were cadets at West Point. He was a year behind me. So I've known him a long time. I know his color. I know his character. I know the nature of who he is. I know how hard he'll work and what a leader he'll become. Those are the reasons I wanted to get out there and help Dave. I think he'll be great for the people of Pennsylvania and I know that I'll serve America in a way that will make every one of us proud..

"Tremendously important time. Scott Pruitt when you were at EPA, you did so many things. You took a lot of bullets for the president in terms of going out to the 404 regulation to allow people to use their own land. You were out there in front on so many issues, including the Obama overreach on all forms of energy to the people of Oklahoma, recall that as you throw your hat in the ring for the Senate seat. Just last night, I was in Oklahoma City at the cowboy Hall of Fame and an event and it was it was wonderful to hear back from oklahomans. One of the appreciation they had the president Trump's leadership, the courageous leadership, the leadership of taking on the regulatory infrastructure of Washington, D.C., not just in the EPA, but we did it across, as you know, the entire administration. So yes, I think they see it. You particularly right now, because when I left the administration in 2018, we were energy independent and violent outcomes and improved, and now just a short time later, where energy dependent and relied upon our foes to supply the needed energy for our citizens and our economy. I mean, we've gone backwards. And it's getting worse. And you know this, you know, very well. This isn't just an issue for America. This is an issue for the world. I mean, energy and currency are tools that are used as, as you know, in weapons and geopolitical politics. And what's happened? A great deal of time the last three or four years in areas of the world, Bulgaria, Sofia, Romanian Bucharest at Czech Republic and other places with respect to American energy exports. And I can tell you just three or four years ago, after I left administration vina's places, they were thirsty and hungry. For American energy because they did not want to be reliant upon Russia. And we couldn't get them in the energy here. And we could not I'm going to talk to your former cabinet colleague Mike Pompeo about that at the bottom of the hour. But I'm interested in a political thing about muscle memory. You know, I went on a bike in Paris a couple of days ago. No one forgets how to ride a bike. Do you remember how to campaign props? He ran and won twice statewide in Oklahoma. You ran as a state senator in Oklahoma at least twice, I think. Do retail political skills come back to you after you've been away for 6 years? Well, a price. Thank you. Look, I think the most important thing in running for office and being authentic. Being authentically who you are. And I've always believed in this grand vision of this country that we are different. We are unique on the world stage and the people of this country don't exist to serve the government, the government exists to serve us. And candidly, when you look at Washington, D.C. today, it's a place where things aren't what they should be. The U.S. Senate in the constitutional framework view. And you know this for a very well, was not incentive this to be another body in the legislative section of government. It was U.S. net was supposed to operate Bitcoin in the U.S. House. It was a place where adults and states may went to look at the long view of the republic to not do what was most expedient or most populous, but to do what was right for the preservation of the republic long term to make the tough decisions. And I was glad to be a part of president Trump's cabinet. What we did exactly that. We made the tough decisions. We took on the infrastructure, the regulatory state. We achieved good outcomes, both for our citizens and the country, but also that obviously, in my case, the environmental outcomes as well. So it was a commitment of change. And being president Trump's point on some of the most transformative areas was something that I count a great privilege and I think it's resonate will resonate well. In this race and obviously I think to offer that as I enter the race..

He was in Texas, making sure that if the Latin quarters Internet goes down, we are not stranded, and I'm joined by my old friend former Oklahoma attorney general former director administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and now candidate for the retiring Hobbes Senate seat Scott Pruitt, Scott. Welcome back, general. It's great to have you back on the show. Bonjour. And I'm sure Ed's in a far better place in Texas, right? Yes, he's in a far better place, but I think it's interesting that I'm talking to you from Paris because you are responsible for getting us out of the Paris accord. You help president Trump get the United States out of the Paris accord. Would you count that as your greatest achievements had a BPA? I believe so. Look, I mean, we tackled use some of the most challenging issues the first two years of the Trump administration. I was president Trump's point person. I was as guide to get things done on some of those transformative issues in the administration in the first two years. And I think that from exiting the Paris accord to ending the weaponization against all forms of producers in the U.S. economy. From agriculture to manufacturing to most people with the energy sector. So yeah, I think exiting the Paris accord hue was a tremendous tremendously important decision to the world, it was something that said that we weren't going to be taking advantage of. We were leading the world in carbon reduction. When we entered the Paris accord, we were front loading costs while China and India took no obligation to the year 2030. At the same time, they were committing to the fair China and India. They were building infrastructure, fossil fuel infrastructure. So it was clear that the risk of the world looked at that decision by the Obama administration to enter the bears accord as economically did send pages to the U.S. and economically advantageous to the rest of the world. And that's the reason they applauded it and it had nothing to do with carbon reduction. So the president made the right decision. It was a historical time for me to be with them in the rose gardens and announce that the world and it was just one aspect of changing the direction of an agency that was obviously a bastion of the American left. Used as a tool and a weapon against all forms of producers in the U.S. to turn it from that to a place that was about stewardship and about respecting our partners in the marketplace to achieve good outcomes for the environment while also producing needed energy for the world was a tremendous.

"scott pruitt" Discussed on Generation V

"Just things like that where you realize, these things were being told they're just so heavily warped and that this PR spin put on all this stuff and that I found that shocking and what I suppose disturbs me is there's no end to these things. You know, I could write about 5, ten, 15, 20 more examples like that, like the Scott Pruitt thing, but there's no so much space in the book. So maybe for a follow up I can look at all these other ones, but it was just shocking to me the level of corruption that exists. There isn't some big flax seed lobby or a big broccoli lobby, a big tofu lobby. But there is a huge meat dairy in our globby that is influencing our behaviors every day, subtly and also not so subtly as well. So what would you propose as the because as a consumer, you feel that that is the problem that you can't begin to solve? You're not involved in government, you're not involved in policy creation. But you can choose what you consume, right? So I feel like you mentioned it earlier. The most beneficial thing you can do is just be more selective with what you consume and the easiest way to reduce your contribution to that is to not consume it whatsoever, not consume it here and there, but just remove yourself altogether if that is what you truly believe. Yeah. Absolutely. I mean, if we're against these things, what we don't want to do is rely on everyone else to change it for us. We don't want to rely on governments to change it. We don't want to rely on these industries to regulate themselves because they won't. They never have. And it's just not going to happen. And even when we look at climate changes a broader issue, you know, it's become a big political talking point now, but the only reason this becomes such a big political talking point is because it's become such a social concept of people of in society and I'm talking about it and so politicians have been reactive. And the politics is often just very reactive. And so if we want politicians to take things seriously, if we want accountability on these companies and these corporations, then unfortunately is the case may be that has to come from us to begin with at the very least, because if the long that we keep buying these products, the longer we keep signaling that everything's fine. And there's not a problem. But if we are against these things, we have to remove our participation from these industries. And if we want a better environment, we want better health. We want a better world which has less suffering than we have to show that that's what we want. We can't just say it. We have to practice it. And by not picking up steak, eggs, dairy, whatever it is in the supermarket and picking up something plant based instead, we're directly showing that. And it's simplistic, of course to think that this supply and demand chain is going to is the only thing that's important. Obviously it isn't. We need government legislation, but without that supply and demand disruption without a saint these companies, we don't want to support you anymore, rather than being shown to government through changing attitudes and behaviors and people saying these things vocalizing their beliefs now. Things won't change about that. So the first thing is to feel empowered to go. I have a responsibility, but beyond that, I have the capability to create change, something that we often don't think, but first things first, I as an individual can help create the world that I want to see brilliant. And then you have to recognize that it's not just you on your own, that there are millions of people around the world who are already doing this, and millions more who will continue to join and do this in the very near future and exponentially hopefully. So we're not just individuals where individuals are in a movement because every movement that's ever existed has been formed of individuals. People on their own going, this is something that I want to oppose or something I want to speak out in support of. So every movement is formed of individuals and we can be one individual in this movement of creating a fairer agricultural system. I'm feeling empowered to know that every choice that we make will lead to that disruption and that disruption of these industries and their profits and their supply chains will lead to a change in government policy over time, hopefully. That will create system change, which is what we ultimately want to see, but it stems from us and the choices that we make every day. Beautifully, but I think that I think that you also alluded to creating a solution as well, because you can't just say, hey, the system's not working, cancel it. That's done with. There's so many people involved. So creating the opportunity for those people to make a transition to create sustainable change that offers this new way of these new systems that will be aligned with the type of future that we want to create. Because I feel like often times it's so easy to say, well, that's just broken, like, let's abandon it, but there's so many people involved. At the end of the day, these farmers are people, too, they're trying to make a living. They've been generationally farming for decades and generations now. So how can we provide them with some type of alternative business or business model or approach to create more sustainable and maybe plant based products or I don't have the solution? I'm not pretending to do, but I'm just saying that it's important to remember that too, that these are people on the other side of this absolutely. And I do think it's important to mention this that when I speak badly of the farming industry, I'm referring to these corporations that are referring to the people who are not the everyday farmers. A lot of farmers do things that, obviously, again, so every farmer does something out against every animal farmer. But I don't think that makes them bad people. And that's a really important thing to recognize that good people can do bad things. We're all capable of doing bad things regardless of how quote good we are. So I'm not trying to say that farmers are bad people. Some obviously do things that are bad, but I'm not saying that farmers are bad people inherently because of what they do. As you rightfully say, this is a generational thing. Farmers live in communities where it's olive ever known. Their friends are farmers, their parents were farmers, their grandparents were farmers, their great grandparents, maybe with farmers. And so is everything they've ever known, farmers will go to colleges and thus study agricultural science and then they'll go into the farming community so they go from farming to studying about farming back to farming again. So it's that whole identity. It's all they've ever known. And for them to stop and reflect on that and think, am I doing something wrong or bad or immoral? Is it not realistic and would be a heavy burden for a farmer to place them? And so in the book I make this point that I'm not against farmers and against what farmers do currently, but there are changes that can be implemented. And so the afterward of the book is talking about what I pursue these changes to be. The first thing to look at is what we call subsidies. Tax subsidies are basically taxpayers, money is given to the government and the government then uses a portion of this taxpayer's money to then subsidize different industries, whether it's fossil fuels, wherever it's medicine, whether it's agriculture, and it drives down the production costs and makes it more accessible and more commercially viable. And subsidies for agriculture came out the Second World War. So after the Second World War had finished and we had food scarcity and food rationing, government set up the subsidies to fund farmers to be able to scale up their production to increase food security with an individual nations. And so it came from a very good fort process that we want to make sure that people have to worry about food anymore. And that was very effective too effective.

"And and so. It's just not you know. In my view you know you continue to see this advancement by government to force you know consumers to adopt that which which they believe it's paternalistic. I mean it's it's it's not allowing the market and the economy drive which should occur. It's government telling consumers what they can and cannot choose what they can and cannot consume and in the same is true and the energy sector with respect to the power grid. I mean we're we're getting country where you're gonna have utility company and and in monitoring as far as us determined that your your thermostat should be set at certain degree at certain times of the day. It's already happening in these areas of the country where there are challenges as far as providing consistent electricity. Because as you know john. I mean before this administration before they obama administration oil natural gas and coal represented over eighty percents of how we generate electricity on the power grid. And today that that is you know that's probably in the fifty to sixty range and so we continue to see you. Know reduction of resiliency and reliability Those baseload feels that have always been there to ensure that we have access to power we need it and we'll we're replacing it with intermittent power wind and solar that when the sun's not china the wind's not blowing. We can't store that that power and as such that the power grid is what vulnerable and it prevents us their live the the growing economy To peruse steel to you know to to manufacturer into heat and cool our homes and so this all these things have consequences and this administration is telling the american people again. We're about big government for about big bureaucracy. Whereabout big taxes. And we're about all those things. And i just don't believe john that if you're all those things that you can be that small business employer you know that that you know this whole tax code that's being produced a thousand or less no tax increases. Well how many small businesses. John do you know out there that are in new york city or across this country. That are working hard to make half a million dollars. And what's going to happen to those folks they're gonna get taxed at the same rate that Exxon getting taxed at you know so it makes no sense whatsoever now. In addition the high energy prices is hurting consumer I mean like we said before. Gasoline is not from two dollars to three three and a half dollars a gallon and it's leading to higher food prices higher inflation higher everything because everything is transportation and when you combined that john with spending. I mean at one point. Three trillion dollar infrastructure package proposed spending on the background back in as you know the.

"Losing jobs manufacturing and understanding that we've been blessed with significant. Natural resources are charged. John with respect to the the the natural that we've been blessed with we would be good stewards of those resources and we should develop them for the betterment of our own people our own economy and we can do so in an environmentally sound sensitive way with new technology carbon capture and storage. You know is something that many of the you know. Own gas companies or advancing to capture carbon and and make sure that is we produce also feels. It's done so an environmentally sensitive way. But but this whole cloth approaches. Say we're going to get rid of fossil fuels eliminate them. You know to anyone. That's really thinking about that in a meaningful way in a rational way in a reasonable way they recognize that that impossible they recognize that that is not sound thinking that that puts our country at risk for the long term and we should be using technology as we always have to advance better environmental outcomes. You know people don't recognize this job. But since the nineteen seventies when the clean air act adopted were six criteria pollutants that the clean air act focused upon in the nineteen seventies at from last decade. Several decades is we adopted regulation and technologies. Come on board. We've been eliminated of eighty percents of those pollutants that well the focus of the clean air. Act i mean we truly as a country have done a tremendous amount of work to make our air quality better in our environment. Better in the face of growing economy is much better much better than china in india. Isn't it all -solutely it is down time. Carbon picking essentially graph last week. The new york times has done it on a per person basis so on graphs china's not so bad but that's because they have one point four billion people and they divide they divide the pollution by one point four billion so it comes to an acceptable level. Which is not a smart way to do it. I mean i think they're trying to fool the american people. Well they've done a fabulous job of that at the same time they were signing the pariser. Quarter mia bomb administration. Two thousand fifteen They were aggressively building. A cogeneration facilities. And we're gonna be doing so for a number of years. Now look i. I believe that fossil fuels coal natural gas oil and the rest that we ought to deploy technology in the us to limit emissions. Also use the fuel and the powerful way to benefit our people That that it's very hypocritical. China to look at the us and say that they're committed somehow to environmental reduction in emissions with respect to these issues at the same time that they're aggressively not taking steps that we have historically so. It's just you know. John all these issues you know. We could have and we need to have as a country very open. Honest reasonable dialogue. I think the american people want that they want to know. How do we do this. But the complete continued political rhetoric. You know that talks about eliminating also feels entirely from the power grid. Entirely from us is just simply. It's magical thinking it's disneyland. Thanking is as i've talked about before it's something that is not achievable and it should not be achievable. It should not be our goal. We should be using technology better to to improve better outcomes about mentally by using natural resources. The guy provided us with scott pruitt. I agree and i say to my friends. I say that as china and india will comply to save time. Iran complies and. I'm saying it almost as a joke..

We're going to defend the clean power plan. That was good fun environment. That was a major step in addressing. Check the climate change crisis any effort to replace that or to a road to chip away at it. We're gonna height and that's what we're doing another suit against against the trump administration in this case the e._p._a. Concerns a pesticide and you might have to help me out with the pronunciation ears yeah well. Oh you're better than me do i. I'm not sure i can say it either. <hes> i say toxic pesticide that is harmful <hes> to children to infants into pregnant women and it impacts the brain development and here's the thing the e._p._a. Again under the obama administration <hes> eliminated. It said you can't put it on food and now you have the trump administration through d._p._a. Saying you can put on food so we're just we're suing the e._p._a. Saying this is harmful. The scientists clear there is a direct impact to infants to kids to pregnant women on brain development and the nervous system from the e._p._a. A couple years ago agreed and said it was harmful and said there is no really tolerable level for this pesticide to be on food and now you have the trump administration with his e._p._a. Saying he can be on food so this is just common sense so we're suing them because we don't we. We think it's harmful. We think it's dangerous and we're gonna stand up for kids and for pregnant moms interstate one of the things i hear quite often from defenders of the president is that he has <hes> really fought to reduce regulations and their impact on our economy and it's helped contribute to something of an economic boom and so on my doing so. Is this an example of that. I mean this is the problem with doing that too much or i mean. How do you strike that balance well. I think you strike a balance in the sense that if it's dangerous to kids and into moms it's good regulation. I mean the idea that you'd get rid of a regulation <hes> that protects babies and kids and pregnant moms <hes> because some corporation asian is gonna some major camp chemical corporations can make a few more bucks is ridiculous.

I i it listeners out there. I know i've got a bunch of listeners out there who are big fans of the president of you'd like to call up and tell us why it's a good idea to allow dave savior. Listen there may be arguable. There may be arguments that have on some regulation to make an argument that a toxic pesticide should be put on food with scientists clear that it's harmful to kings something anybody's gonna defend but for the trump administration and in my opinion and you know look it's political in the sense that a couple of years ago oh the e._p._a. Said hey this is harmful. There is no tolerable amount that we can put on food and then to have reversal under scott pruitt. Who's completely completely gutted got a di a._p._i. The e._p._a.

Explainer 167: Why has Trump ramped up his war on the environment?

"As a people, we want and need economic growth. But now we must also expect environmental responsibility and respect the natural world. It was a Republican President, George Bush, senior, and not democrat to help stay through one of the most ambitious pieces of climate change legislation today, eight amending the Clean Air Act in nineteen ninety two limit air pollution, and tackle, everything from urban smoke to acid rain while his son fad less. Well, refusing to ratify the key Oto protocol in two thousand and one and helping tank brand America around the world. George Hw mate, an important point, protecting the environment and advancing big business didn't need to be mutually exclusive when one does, if the current Oakmont of the White House, don't. Out, J Trump has ever listened to that speech. We've seen enough of this stalemate. It's time to clear the air. You know, I think we will indeed since moving into Pennsylvania Avenue in January of two thousand seventeen Trump's administration has mounted a concerted effort to refu- climate change science and loosen regulations in favor of the fossil fuel industry. So how did the forty fifth president of the US become such a champion and chief of the environmental skeptics? And they say as and why as ever with Trump. The answer is complicated and contradictory Trump's musings, own the environment, actually predate his ascendancy to the presidency taking his favorite communications medium Twitter. He regularly lamb bastard. His predecessor Barrack Obama for wasting federal money tackling global climate change and as recently as two thousand fifteen he cooled the whole thing a hoax. All of this with the global warming and that a lot of it's a hoax. It's a hoax. I mean it's a money making industry. Okay. But then, just as we're starting to think with seeing patent Donald Trump before his many about tons of trying to throw us off the scent in two thousand nine for example, he signed an open letter that challenge diploma to come up with a more meaningful climate change policy will recently, his stowed, the importance of clean-air, and who can forget, those clean co comments while allowing measures that will undermine it often his framed, his stones as a business competitively issue right now. We're at the cleanest, we've ever been. That's very important to me. But if went clean, but every other place on earth is dirty. That's not so good. Of course, actions, speak louder than woods and ever since the now shamed and departed fossil fuel politics. Scott Pruitt was installed to lead the Environmental Protection Agency. We knew something was a mess, and no action speaks, louder than the decision to put after the Paris climate agreement. A huge blow even if many of the US's largest companies have found to continue following its rulebook. More recently, the assault on climate change has talked people working in government agencies pressuring staff to avoid using the words climate change in speeches. They have also been moved meant how scientific studies carried out by doing away with worst case scenario projections, and several members of Trump's inner circle are pushing to create a climate change panel. That will challenge environmental assessments, according to a recent New York Times report, the chasm between George H W Bush, and Trump may simply be a reflection of radically different times, the age of political decorum, and bipartisanship Bush, happily mentioned the Democrats in the room in that speech along gone. Meaning a compromise on the environment is unlikely. And then there are the people that Trump has chosen to surround himself with many of them, committed climate change deniers, just listen to this Arctic Council speech by secretary of state, Mike Pompeo earlier this month. Arctic is at the forefront of opportunity and abundance, it houses thirteen percent of the world's undiscovered oil thirty percent of its undiscovered gas and an abundance of uranium rare earth minerals gold diamonds, and millions of square miles of untapped. Resources fisheries glory, dark, money donors, so competent, knee, described by New Yorker journalist, and Monaco, big interview, e Jane man, also doubtlessly have a part to play thanks to the Mercer's and the cokes, deep pockets among others, what was once fringe thinking is now part at the Republican mainstream and that includes the environment. We know that Trump and embrace of science quackery conspiracy theories doesn't have the best grasp of the facts, and whether it's someone who has the presidential ear distorted vision that the US will lose out to China, if it abandoned fossil fuels, despite the as in power moved to dominate the clean energy market, all simply watching too much FOX and friends, the whole climate crisis as they call. It is not only fake news. It's fake science. Remain be sure. But that also doesn't mean that we should doubt for one moment. The convictions of this administration. My administration is putting an end to the war on call for Monaco in New York. I'm as Docker.

"You count longtime. But again, the things that bothered me were. Knowing that so many Republicans would just ignore this and listening to Jordan and Matthews, and and just the cabal that vote early on what is it? So there were twenty seventeen nays and twenty four years if I recall about they just want to about whether they should delay these airings because oh, it was it was the first thirty seconds. All right. And I do get it. I get with it. I mean, getting whatever evidence that he was putting through a couple hours before it starts. It's it was prepared statement. That was all. Well, no, all the checks and all that evidence. I think was also included in which is was like, okay. So he's going to tell you right now. I understand it's a power play. I think on both sides. I saw the ending it like having grandstanding when you know that it was just gonna continue. Anyway, it's only they were going to stand up and be like. Online at five in the morning, two hours before so they can seen it. I mean, they had time. What were they doing? I mean, it was just it was grandstanding. It was a it was a message to Trump. I think like, hey, I'm I'm trying I'm on your side. They're both Matthew Matthew Matthews and Jordan or both anti-gay marriage and pro-life to the meadows. Thank you. Meadows is the one that said he believes in the death penalty for doctors who perform abortion. So they're crazy. They're insane. And and the fact that they had the balls to talk about liars when they're liar and chief has light eight thousand times in two years. I mean that takes some pretty big brass ones. Right. Let's get your phone calls eight hundred eighty eight ten love to talk to you about this. But mostly what was it? Was there anything that really was a revelation to you when you look to anyone. Wow, racism thing really bothered me. And I thought to myself if Africa if I'm African American I'm listening to that thinking about this. So that didn't really you didn't know that he was racist. But to hear it tell that he's in a car with them and they're driving through an area and send these two people are too stupid or on a city stuff. Like that doesn't surprise me. Thing. I mean, if there was anything that I was interested in it was it was more of the people that were trying to get the the information out of him the names. That's why I brought up a Alexandria Cossio Cortez. She had a purpose in her questioning, she wasn't grandstanding. So is making a speech. She's like we're going to basically make a case to fully investigate possibly his tax returns. She was looking for the names, and she was looking for where do we have to go to get more information? And I think that's the way to go. I should've asked us on the can they can they get his tax returns and the oversight committee. Do they do they have Frank? And why are you Frank Santa Cruz? Hi, you're on K, G, O Chipper NICKY. What did you? What was your takeaway from today? Truly fast with Andrew. Quartets? I mean, that's how you do it. She showed everybody else in that panel. Exactly how to do it. But I wanted to make a point. A Betsy DeVos. I wanted to interview hold with me. The reason Betsy DeVos in charge of education like in charge of interior people. Like that wasn't Scott Pruitt in charge, the EPA people who are anti and against what the functions of those departments are charge of what federal SEC is because you're flying to break government. And the reason is is because you know, this is kind of complicated Chipper per second. When you live in a city, right? You pay taxes, and you see your tax dollars at work. You see bridges you see roads. UC fire you see police area. You don't see those kind of things you you send your tax dollars off and you'll see a return on your investment. And that's why urban areas tend to vote democratic and Republican areas tend to be the urban areas. And so they're sending people to the federal government in order to break the government. And it's all because we know that stupid tax pledge from Grover Norquist in the ninety dollars Republicans sign that they wouldn't raise taxes, right? Like a great deal. But it's involved into this thing where we want smaller government, which is I agree with smaller government can be good. But it's involved in this thing, we're now they want to break the federal government. And the reason it is isn't because they want smaller government is better. It's because these Republican politicians are in the pockets. I mean, the the lobbyists aren't filling their pockets with cash so that they can deregulate. So there is no government oversight and on those same lines. I think there's an element of that's racist as well because they see social programs in major cities, and they see African American. They forget that the vast wasn't. Tool to manipulate older. White people the truth is majority on social programs in this country are white and they live in red states and that Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood is the Goto place for Ghana logical issues for white poor women in this country. That's not spoken about. Most of them are either stood the daughters of rich, white GOP, ultra conservatives and their kids are going to Planned Parenthood. But you're right. The largest receiver of welfare the United States are corporations not people. Yeah. They want limited government because the lobbyists are paying them. The government's there's less oversight of industry. So they can make more profit. That's simply what it is people who vote Republican being used and they need to realize that. Well. The Affordable Care Act is being dismantled. While it is. That means people are going to hospitals in rural areas that means hospitals are going bankrupt. We've already had thirty two hospitals closed this year in the south a major hospitals that are closing. And that's where people. And you're right. I, but I think it goes back to Reagan. I think Grover Norquist's in the late night early nineties. I met that cabin for. He's as shallow as an August puddle. He has absolutely yeah. Yeah. He's a and they're all government, not small government. But efficient government is. Well, I think I believe in and so they're using that there's using a sales pitch of the smaller government break government. So that they can run rampant and profiteer off the American taxpayer. And it's sad that people fall for it constantly over and over again. Anyway, I gotta go work. The reason I know this is because I used to believe it. I used to believe that you had to break government down. I used to believe all these conservative ideologies while I was on an air personality. You know, starting in ninety three I braced it up until the early two thousands. And then it kinda can started coming to me, you know, and it it crystallized and seven and eight of say and then. Once you realized you've been part of a con job that you perpetuated is a bad feeling. That's why I believe it's it's not criminal. What I did. But I look I listen to Cohen, and I think he sincerely regrets. What he did? I don't think anybody can say that he doesn't I think that there is definitely many who would say he regrets it because he was caught. And now he's paying the price. But as he turned his way at some point didn't matter. What makes you regret it if you were credit, right? Yeah. I hear people get caught. I mean, guys get caught cheating, and they it takes their wife finding out about. And then they go crap. Well, yeah. You liked your wife and she catches you cheat. And you're like, okay, cheated on her. I can't believe you because you lied to me. Well, I'm telling you the truth. Now, Theresa I I agree with you about Cummings closing remarks. Tell us what you thought. Hi, go ahead, please. I just wanted to let you guys know that I really despite the fact that Mark Cohen was part of that whole that homeless sheen that really work towards speaking poorly of the left, and the Democrats and things like that. I think Elijah Cummings is closing remarks towards him or extremely human. They were very touching. I think Mark police closing remarks were extremely human and very touching and very real. I I appreciate all the things he mentioned, especially as the daughter of an immigrant for him to mention family that shouldn't be separated, you know, veterans. My father's a World War veteran and all of that exchange. It's really sad to me that Republicans look at and say, oh, that's he's he's reading the DNC playbook, and what what I appreciated about coming remarks that my mom's ninety years old, and she and I watched this together. And and she. With australia. But I totally agree with her. We'll break coming up. We'll get more your phone calls, and you can hear we're gonna play some of Michael Collins closing remarks and then a little bit later. Elijah Cummings as well both emotional, but I mean Cohen was dead on man. He had he he hit it out of the park. That's all coming up next on.

Trump administration ends California talks on auto emissions: White House

"California officials are blaming the Trump administration for the breakdown in talks saying the feds never made a good faith effort to resolve the dispute over fuel economy standards Stanley young the head of California's Air Resources Board tells the times that the two sides had several meetings. But nothing meaningful was discussed the origins of the dispute go back to last year when then EPA administrator Scott Pruitt announced plans to lower gas mileage Intel pipe emissions rules adopted during the Obama administration at the same time the EPA threaten to take away California's authority to set its own fuel staff. Standards which are even stricter California threatened to sue. And until recently, the two sides had been holding periodic discussions in an effort to avoid a court fight the issue goes beyond California. At least a dozen states have adopted California's tougher rules accounting for about forty percent of all the new cars sold in the US car. Carmakers are concerned though without a resolution they could have to produce different vehicles for a split US market for KCRW. I'm

"And democratic establishment Peterson. And actually create a plan to stop this crisis. Imperilling all of our generations lives at the actual, right? That's the history speaking of history, and as you alluded to earlier, there's plenty it was called the new deal. And that was the original means by which an activist government mobilized against the ongoing catastrophe of the great depression with public funds public works vast infrastructure expansion and so on not because even in nineteen thirty the public loved to socialist style command economy, but because the alternative was economic collapse. The methods of normal had to be replaced. Serious and Graham with bananas. Circumstances are parallel even if you look at the lead up to the new deal. So Herbert Hoover who dealt with the very early days of the great depression was consistently unable to figure out what this crisis was he didn't know the scale of it what had caused it. And with so committed to the idea of private businesses being able to meet the needs of the people that he really was just so opposed to the idea of federal intervention in the economy, and so one of the first programs that he unveils had campaign to encourage people to invest in charities that doesn't work, and they're just really wasn't an avenue for folks who were struggling to get their basic needs met. And so there was sort of math social uprising from people who are being thrown out of work who couldn't feed their families saying Cleese have the government intervene in our lives to make them better. And so that was sort of the call that after you are brought into the office and how he got into the office. Even as he was governor of New York implemented several programs that would find their way into the new deal later on not earlier, I mentioned flipping the narrative on the other hand, I kind of feel like jor El on krypton, and we're like the world is going to end in twelve years if we don't address climate change and your biggest the ticking clock is still a part of the pitch. Yeah. And I think that is certainly a part of referencing back to the new deal, and the other thing that people bring up often is the mobilization around Mobutu, which looked at a similar access central threat and voted a massive amount of federal resources to confronting it. And I think that is absolutely. The mindset we need to be and there are climate scientists are increasingly calling for quote unquote, wartime footing to deal with climate change. I think the new deal and the great depression and something like the moon landing if we were to combine. And all those things together. Then we might start to get a sense for the scale of work that this transition will require and the vast nature of it. There is significant by an already from some key Democrats will you fully endorse the green new deal tonight. I support a green new deal. Well, we have to have a green new deal for America. We need a green new deal is creating many millions of decent paying jobs transforming. But as a society, we've been fighting over health insurance since the nineteen ninety s so. Yeah, krypton and all that. But Republicans does the future of green new deal not hinge on people who simply don't want any part of it. Yeah. It's a good question. But I think what the green new deal framing does smartly in the people pushing for it. Our smartly getting around is this tendency within environmental groups to sort of go begging to Republicans to say, please support our climate policy will make it as weak as possible if you just get on board, and we've seen this time and time again, most notably in two thousand nine with wax and Mark with this cap and trade Bill ratifies. The fact that emissions trading is a policy tool that will be implored which started off as somewhat decent legislation for time. And through the course of debating, it just got watered down so much to the point where if it had been passed that Bill would have kneecapped the environmental protection agencies in ways that Andrew Wheeler. And Scott Pruitt could really only dream of. And so that has been a trap that I think a lot of environmentalists and Democrats have fallen into saying that you know, we only get climate policy. If we convince enough Republicans to get on board. But as we've seen this is such a deeply partisan issue that I don't think Republicans really come to the table in good faith to debate climate policy, particularly not given the millions of dollars that they got from the fossil fuel industry every year in campaign contributions. I want to end by bringing this back to something. I was kind of hinting at in the introduction. And that is President Trump's obsession with migration at the southern border. Now, the fact checkers have documented chapter and verse why almost everything he says about the threat is untrue. But the irony of this conversation is that if the climate is left unchecked. It'll all come true. Some of the migration that we're already seeing from Latin America is due to folks not being able to harvest their crops because there are field. They're going follow because of the effects of climate change. That's not all of it. Of course. But climate is sort of a factor in why people are heading north and seeking jobs and cases production. So we will see more migration that is just sort of a reality of the world that we're living at no matter how quickly we mitigate climate change. But I think this gets back to something that is really powerful. I think about the green new deal framing, which is that we have to learn how the state can do new things how the state can learn new tricks to deal with very different worlds. Climate change will affect every single policy field in the next century. And so immigration is a climate issue. Whether Trump talks about it like that or not, and it deserves folks who are thinking about climate change to have a real response to that. Which take seriously the need to have. Really humane approach to inviting folks into the country. I think. Okay. Thank you very much. Thank you. Kate aaronow is a contributing writer for the.

"But I think he is a very strong anti progressive. And in that sense. Libertarians have benefited from Trump to that degree because what he's done is. He's shed a light on, you know, some people call the deep state, but he said a light on, you know, the problem with our political process, you know, everything from the bureaucratic state with some of his, you know, appointments that, you know, like, the like Scott Pruitt who should never been the then you've got, you know, the problem with congress and the amount of executive authority has he's been exposing this. And now, you have Democrats are like, oh there's too much federal authority. We'll see if they believe the next time. They they elected Democrats the White House. But like, you know, I like Howard Schultz for the same reason I like Trump because they it's not necessarily for what they. Stand for but who they stand against. And this was a type of argument that I said was pretty asinine back in twenty sixteen. But as I've kind of let it like season linger a little bit comics, a lot more sense. Because what do I not want? I don't wanna socialists president. I don't want any of these morons running and Trump. He, you know, he does some pretty some pretty stupid things. Sometimes it's like, you know, I know that Trump's not socialist. And I know that Trump is an equal opportunity hater, I all necessarily get that vibe from Schultz, the fact that you know, you have no one ever gives third party candidates any type of recognition like even when Gary Johnson like Johnson MC was running for president in January of twenty sixteen. He didn't get really at like there were no it's hacks on him. There was no real press on him until the mid summer of twenty sixteen were in January twenty nineteen and the Democrats are shitting themselves because Schultz and right thing in Virginia. It just shows like oh my God. This dude is right. People have gone through frigging far. Yeah. I mean, I think they really have. They've backed themselves into a corner and the real fear that I have as far as Trump getting reelected. I think is the economy. I think we are coming up on a recession. We've had the largest period of economic expansion in the history of the nation. So it's not going to last a whole lot longer. If Trump can get it to last, and I dunno that's him getting to last, but if it will last through the twenty twenty elections, I think he'll get reelected if we see a crash or at least a significant downturn before. Then I think he'll be a one term president. And the the real dangerous part is that who is opposing Trump. Right. We we I you Trump Howard Schultz. We all oppose the far left socialist radicals that are in the Democratic Party and seemed to be taking a very strong hold of the democrat party. But if Trump has running on this, you know, I'm a conservative. I'm for limited government..

I really like getting updates never know what's going to happen. It matters to us. Telling you, well, S AM eight ninety. On fixing the media at a certain point. It becomes the boy cried wolf, I think there are a lot of folks who go, well, that's just the media spouting after Rush Limbaugh. It's been Shapiro from two to five it's really incumbent on the media to do as much reporting of the facts as possible and leave a lot of the hyperbole out of it. Afternoons two five Ben Shapiro on L S, eight ninety. Coming up. We have a legal cage match between the Virgin Mary. And normally you would think that the Virgin Mary would win, but she's going against a very very very very tough trailer park. And of course, the story comes from Florida. So we'll get into that here in just a few minutes. Let's give the president credit where credit is due after a couple of duds. Like Scott Pruitt, Ryan, Zinke, he made a terrific pick. As far as our next attorney general make no mistake. He will be confirmed. Avila bar William far is Trump's best appointment so says the man we're going to talk to next John McGuinness professor at Northwestern University Pritzker school of law. I have read them in the Wall Street Journal, national review and other places. I think today I found this piece of real clear politics, but it comes to us from law. Liberty dot org. And I thought that was terrific. So we wanna Papa John McGuinness through the speakers here. And I'll read from your piece, I Mr. McGuinness, and then we'll get you elaborate. No cabinet official can get a president more trouble faster than. Attorney general van legal advice can lock the administration bad politics, ethical lapses at the department of Justice can taint the entire government. It is us very fortunate that the president's made us most effective appointment in William bar fire agrees with Trump on most important issues. The borders must be secured that violent crimes should remain a priority for law enforcement and the courts should not be the mechanism for fundamental social change. Professor. Welcome to double the LS on taking it that you're really enjoying this next attorney general Bill bar would you elaborate on that? Please. Yes. Well, one reason I'm very confident in my prediction is that. I worked for him for two years when he was the attorney general in charge of the officer. We will which essentially as the chief law opinion writer for the executive branch, and he's a very good lawyer. And that's very important at the department of Justice while I I don't have any doubts about Jeff Sessions integrity. He made I think a number of mistakes, the kind of a stakes that a seasoned Washington lawyer would not make a not can really hurt the president's policies both in terms of there being upheld and their terms of their perception for the public. Yeah. Mr. McGuinness, let's go through Jeff Sessions in his lacking or lasting legacy. I guess starting with the decision to separate children from their parents at the border that was I think it's safe to say a public relations disaster, even if he was on firm legal ground to do. So. Right. We had discretion. He didn't. That was a discretionary decision of the attorney general's. He made a mistake. Anyone was recognized was mistake. He had in some sense. Good intentions. So it's one wanted to distance given Santa's against bring children across the board, which is real real problem for children as they trek through Central America. But it was a really was a disaster. You also made a mistake and and trying to end the DACA program, which I think should be ended. He said that it was unconstitutional. There was no need to say that that would allow courts, and of course, many of the courts want to reject Trump administration policy and say, well, we didn't really show that it was unconstitutional. The basic fact is the Obamas decision. About administration's decision was also discretionary all think sessions had to say was what we may. Made a different decision which most executive branches made for twenty years before. And so he just did not do some basic good lawyering. And I think the attorney the attorney general bar who's been there before and been the general counsel from very important corporations won't make those kind of mistake. So he won't make any detours in the lawsuits that have absolutely zero point zero hope victory, correct? That's right. And I think the the lawsuit frankly, that's trying to hand the Affordable Care Act, which is brought by the states where the department intervened, I think is one of those and has gotten gotten criticism even among the most conservative legal academics. And so I think Trump is going going to be very well served by William bar because both of these competent, but he basically does agree with the president on basic Justice department policies, that's absolutely crucial. Because there was some very good cabinet members in some sense. Right. Good man who didn't agree with Trump on basic principles and that just as a disqualification at a at a high level of a cabinet officer. Professor mcginnis is a Northwestern University Pritzker school law. He worked with Bill bar Becca Bush forty one how did you like his performance, and it wasn't performance at the confirmation hearing? Oh, I thought he was very good as really occur particularly with some of the shrill democratic senators like kind of Harrison et cetera. Hirono I wouldn't come on Harris. For instance, said well Gerda, you should disqualify yourself. If the if the ethics people say, so he pointed out that it's his judgment. And you said, it's it's my judgment. I'm not gonna give up the judgment that the statute requires a very strong answer in a very fervent. So you do not allow themselves to be browbeat by democratic senators on the other hand, I think very I think a lot of them critically those who knew him from before and certain people like Federal Way he did a great deal of respect for him. So I think he's got respect across the aisle from people who are willing to give respect to somewhat of a different party. And that'll be firm. With senators who are simply trying to score political points. He has no patience for that. And I've seen him before. And hearing he can really shut that down very quickly. I know you've seen him a number of times used to work in the we're talking to her professor mcginnis who knows Mr. bar. What about your pass with Robert Muller? I know that Barak course, has known them for thirty years have you? And if so do you have any comments on Muller? I don't know him nearly as well. Of course, I worked at a department when he was head of the criminal division. And I think I would say with with what what what what what will you bars? Have it? I think bar is that William Muller's a straight shooter there, I think are bad incentives with respect to independent counsel that it's hard to avoid in other words that they sometimes think they really got to bring a case. And I think. That's that's a problem. But that's not a problem for Bob Muller. That's the problem with the incentives of the independent counsel. I think he's a he's a he's a he's a very good, man. And he's not a partisan, man. And I think the he's likely to do a fair fair job. We'll just have to wait for the report. Do you think the report is going to be more of a yawn or more of a bombshell? I don't know. At the moment. I think it's gonna be more of a yawn with respect to the president. Although it will raise some questions about the president's choice of some of his advisers that have not been wise in the past exactly actually be the the biggest implication of the report does the president in the campaign, and in his personal life that show some people were not very good and maybe a warrant game in the future. But he may be getting it used to someone like Bill Bihar who certainly a very wise choice. You wonder how Rudy Giuliani is doing nowadays? Because he certainly seems to be twisted himself into pretzel. Logic trying to defend everything. Well, I think that's right. I I mean, I think he frankly is shown a great decline in his performance. I was in New York City. I was actually that's their touring his matter mayor Oriole administration. And it seems to me that he's lost a few steps. Leave it there. Professor, we all do eventually it happens to everybody. I appreciate your time, sir. And we'll have you back for more analysis down the line. Thank you so much. Thank you much. Professor. John McGuinness at Northwestern University Pritzker school law here on WLS. Right now on the Edens. If you're traveling out to lake cook, just twenty minutes.

But I do want us to know that things have been there are some positive lights to keep us going. Some things are working at it and do more. So I'm just gonna read off a couple of things. So remember the Keystone Pipeline. Yes. Yes. So that was bullshit ya. So basically in November twenty eight teen the US district court judge vacated Trump's presidential permit the analysis. The State Department conducted to grant the one thousand one hundred seventy nine mile long crude oil pipeline didn't get into impacts the pipeline would have on climate change. So district court judge Brian Morris? He instructed the federal government to get on that. So this is good news. It's a little kind of law, blah, blah, blah. But basically that means that. They put a pause on it. Okay. Let's say. Not moving forward. That's fantastic. Which is really good a little something that is a little less. You know, samba looted. Yeah. Is basically so Scott Pruitt, if you don't anything very in an environment is the secretary of the APA he denied climate change ridiculous. He repeal key environmental legislation. But basically, he quit all right into lie. That's great. So that's great for winning winning winning getting out of our we know his replacement as yet and don't it's crazy. You know, there's so many like even to this day because I was listening to Marissa's audio.

Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker to oversee Mueller probe

"Former US attorney from Iowa and the George W Bush administration. So he does have DOJ experience by Democrats in particular are quite concerned about whether he's tipped his hand as to how he feels about this mother probe carry I wanna take a moment to hear your thoughts about Jeff Sessions. The departing attorney general departed attorney general who you covered for for a couple of years. This is a guy. I know who was scorned by many Trump supporters for not seeming supportive of Naf of his president which wasn't his job. A bit. Also scorned by people on the left because of the immigration and other policies that he backed what are his friends and supporters saying of his two years as attorney general a lot of support statements supportive statements overnight, Steve from sessions, former colleagues in the Senate where Jeff Sessions surfer twenty years, they say he had a forty year dedicated record of public service. He did a lot at crack down on immigration and asylum, which is one of Donald Trump's top priorities in his heart was in the right place. He wanted to do the right thing. That's why he recused himself from the Russia probe which put him in the president's ill Grace's to begin with Gary. Thanks so much. Really? Appreciate it. My pleasure. That's NPR Justice. Correspondent Carrie Johnson. Okay. The firing of sessions is one of several rapid fire. Moves by the president. That's right. I e held a news conference yesterday afternoon where he expressed bitter satisfaction at the defeat of many House Republicans he said that some of them lost after failing to embrace him. He said that the lesson. He learned from the election was quote, people like me, then after that the White House revoked the credentials of a CNN reporter, and in the midst of all of this. Of course, the White House is up against a changed political landscape because Republicans lost the house and elections at many other levels on Tuesday. NPR's Scott Horsely covers the White House and is with us. Hey there Scott good morning. Steve led me, I ask about the change at the department of Justice Whittaker's attempt, these the acting attorney general how easy is it. Going to be for the president to have a replacement confirmed by the Senate, well, certainly the president's fellow Republicans had encouraged him not to make any changes at the Justice department before the midterm election, but he may feel. Freer now to make changes with that election behind him. As a result of the polling on Tuesday. The president now has a larger friendly GOP majority in the Senate, and that's the team that would be responsible for confirming any replacement Mitch McConnell. The Senate GOP leader was asked yesterday about the confirmation process. This was before we knew that sessions was on his way out, and he said that how controversial that processes would depend on who the president chooses for any for any new post. We have seen some lip service paid by Republicans. And and senators elect Republicans in the Senate and senators elect to say that the Muller probe must be protected on the house where there will be a new democratic majority. They of course, won't play any role in confirming a successor, but they will have the power to investigate the process of sessions dismissal. Okay. So there'll be a lot of news there, and that is just one cabinet depart. -ment are other changes expected in the administration after the midterm election here. It wouldn't be surprising to see more departures. The president said yesterday he is for the most part extremely happy with his cabinet. Of course, that was just hours before we learned that sessions was on his way out. The president did say he would be taking a look at some of the ethical complaints. That had been lodged against his interior secretary. Ryan Zinke, of course, ethics charges have already failed to other cabinet secretaries health secretary, Tom Price and the EPA administrator Scott Pruitt, even though in both cases, those men were very aggressive in carrying out, the president's agenda, just as

Charlie Andrew Wheeler has only been Leading the EPA for. Three weeks but in that. Time he's made it clear that he'll be adopting much of his predecessors Scott Pruitt's, agenda but not his headline grabbing, habits during his first congressional testimony today Wheeler said President Trump gave him three tasks when he, was appointed acting administrator clean up the air clean up the water and provide regulatory. Relief to help the economy thrive and create more jobs for American, workers I believe we accomplish all, three at the same, time in fact we have. Already made progress on all three fronts in just the past few weeks joining us is Jennifer Deloitee Bloomberg news, environment and energy regulation reporter generally you're at the hearings today did he. Explain how he's going to deregulate at the same time. As cleaning. Up the air and water Well he talked a lot about regulatory certainty the idea that. You can process hermits more quickly and give answers to the businesses that are in the, developers that are, seeking permits involving water or land that's really where I think the. Rubber meets the road where you have this. Flash and where he, is hoping, to bridge the divide, any big headlines from him on any important issues that you following absolutely so what was really interesting today is. Of course how heavily the hearing focused on policy a. Little bit, of a change from a hearing we saw with his predecessor Scott Pruitt there were. Dominated by concerns about ethics and spending today Andrew Wheeler indicated that. He wants to reach some kind. Of compromise with California over vehicle emission standards the administration is on the verge of releasing its proposal who Ease Obama era standards that aim to increase fuel economy requirements. And and greenhouse gas emission requirements for cars over the coming years and they're gonna freeze those in the proposal the proposal also is, going to take aim at California's unique ability to regulate emissions in. Its. Own turf and and what we only, today is he'd like to see a fifty state solution some kind of compromise that California can be, on board with and that, wouldn't require. Him to go after California's authority so Jen in in. This statement or the report that's going to be unveiled is it going to still talk about trying. To take back a California's the special powered has over emissions Right are, reporting indicates that indeed this, proposal tomorrow won't we'll still have that very strongly in it that it will asserts that California's own emission. Roles are preempted California shouldn't have a waiver allowing them to to regulate emissions in this special way and? That, it. Will of course take this harder approach to, freezing the Obama era standards that said we learn made pains today to say this is just a proposal and of course at. The proposal that involves not just his agency. The EPA but is also being written with the department of transportation where you have some political appointees that. Are pushing this harder stance so that that we're going to see these tensions I, think play out over coming months but he took pains today, distress that this is just an opening bed and his. Goal of the compromise is it fair to say that Wheeler is auditioning for, the job full time as it has to lose oh absolutely this is, an audition an on the job On addiction. As it work, Senator Baraza that chairman of the environment and public works committee, today said he'd like to see Wheeler get the job full time it doesn't we don't have any indication that the president. Is preparing to nominate him anytime before the November elections and, issue will probably linger for, awhile but no question everyone is watching his performance from the White House to the Senate Jen you've written. About how some people might read some of his actions as being backing off of Pruitt's agenda but they? Would, be. Wrong explain what his aim seems to be What we see with. Wheeler is. Really a continuation of crew with gender he's still aims to ease many of the same regulations that Pruitt targeted for revision or repeal that. Includes Obama-era regulations, governing a greenhouse gas emissions from oil wells and from power plants and. Of course the the car proposal we just talked about what is different is that even though the agenda, is going to be continuing. And is clearly continuing in similar fashion Wheeler is taking a slower approach he's a little bit more cautious you might be a little less aggressive in leaning into some of these policy changes stomach. Think that will that he's more interested in doing a lot of the dotting is and crossing of cheese it's necessary to ensure these rollbacks are supported and can withstand legal scrutiny That's the question we'll see answered later on. How, well he does at that but he's taking a slower and more cautious approach and acting some of the, same reforms now Miller is. A former lobbyist and he did get a question about his ethics what. Was that right at the very. Top of the hearing he was asked about his willingness to recuse himself from past clients he's he's indicated that he will not interact with or be involved in a decision that directly involve past. Clients including notably the coal miner Bob Murray head of Murray Energy Corporation But that really was a remarkably the only ethics question in this hearing, where Franklin previous airings involving, Pruitt were dominated by inquiries about ethics So in general. Gen about thirty seconds here, did it see less did it seem less, confrontational than the hearings with. Pruitt night, and day absolutely less confrontational he. Was given. A warm welcome relatively speaking by both Democrats. And Republicans including some approved fiercest critics all right thanks. So much for that report that's, Jennifer Deloite, Bloomberg news environment and energy regulation reporter we'll have more on those Wheeler hearings throughout the day coming up on. Bloomberg politics policy power law the White House backs away from a change that would slash tax bills for wet wealthy investors and. A reminder you can listen to. All today's interviews, as well as past episodes of the show at anytime on Bloomberg.

U.S. and Mexico Nearing Nafta Car Deal, Sources Say

"Bloomberg intelligence so the feds still. Talking about this too worried about how not to be The curve. Invert because that seems to be a signal for recession although the wags are. Very very long so it's not obvious, to me that a flat curve necessarily means recession but, the fed wants to avoid that and one. Of the things that they'll certainly, talk about at. The meeting is hey can we. When should we stop is going only once every quarter gonna invert the curve or not right now we have got the. Ten year, two point nine nine percent down nine thirty seconds gold is down. Five, tenths of, one, percent, twelve, eighteen, the.

Tenths of one percent one zero two on Wall Street. That means it is time now for the market driver's report with a focus On American depositary receipts. And here is Dave Wilson thanks Charlie eighty yards are fulling more than US, shares, the SNP? DR index is down six tenths of a percent he s and p five hundred hundreds.

Much Dave Wilson tracking those American depositary receipts so again recapping here. Stocks mixed SNP down for a drop, of about two tenths of. One percent I'm, Charlie pelletan that is a Bloomberg business, flash all right Charlie thank you with midterm elections in the US coming in November and a new president in Mexico Mexico taking office in December the two countries are, nearing a deal on new rules for cars sold. Under NAFTA one. Of the major sticking points and, talks to. Revise the trade agreement speaking at a US S. chamber of commerce event this week commerce secretary Wilbur Ross discuss the progress or media close. To completion negotiations are with NAFTA particularly with Mexico we're very. Pleased that, the new. President in Mexico, wasted no, time at, all in pulling is new trade team sir McGregor is Bloomberg news economic policy team leader. She joins us now for more on this story from our Bloomberg ninety nine one studios, in, Washington DC so Sarah how would. The US and Mexico settle the their. Differences over, cars so that's the big question right now what what is in this deal you know. We're hearing that. That the US Mexico are getting. Closer to, some, sort of agreement on autos and there are so many contentious issues in these NAFTA talks but without. A doubt autos is. Probably going to be the hardest one for them to agree on so it is. Significant that if they are getting closer to some to some sort of idea of what they'd Want that basically the lion's share of the US trade deficit with Mexico is cars and we. All know by now that the, trade deficit is really big car parts right and car parts and we know that the trade, deficit, is. Trump's the, thorn in Trump's side when when he talks. About trade so it's really at the. Cracks of redoing this deal so it really can't be overstated how important it would be if Mexico and the, US can can find an, agreement on that but. The big question is where is candidate seems like the US and Mexico are sort of in the boardroom. Right now, at the negotiating table and Canada's in the waiting room and can? They even make deal over cars without. Involving Canada Mexico is the biggest? Source of, car imports to the US Canada's right behind it at number two so how how this practically, would happen it's not clear right now but it would be. Significant if there's some, progress so tell us what the sticking points have been in this area of. Automobiles and auto parts so the US at one point you know had said they want a significantly larger portion Parts of a car percentage of a car to be built from North American made. Parts so they wanted something, like seventy five percent from the current agreement was sixty two point five percent Mexico wanted a little bit lower lower than that and I think also. The US really wanted to make sure that these these parts? That basically the value of the car was coming from higher wage work Trump's biggest one of his. Biggest concerns has been US jobs going. To lower costs Mexico in, the automotive sector in the manufacturing sector and I. Think the US wanted to try and guarantee that higher wage labor was going to be an. Aspect of this agreement put into, writing now so that those jobs could be in America Do you have any idea why the Trump administration has shut Canada out of this out of these talks and are the Mexicans on board with keeping the Canadians out at this point Well I think big turning point was the election of the new president in Mexico to lie I Trump himself has said he's spoken with Anglo since he was elected. And it really seems like there's a priority right now in Mexico as well to get a deal before. This new president in this new administration in Mexico takes over on December first so I think that was a little bit of a more of a willing partner with Mexico right now and, also the US has been pretty vocal. About the fact that Canada has, sort of tried to tried to go a little bit around them to influence lawmakers in the US industry groups and and the US doesn't like that it, wants to negotiate with Canada and it thinks it's, sort of, a little bit of a, sneaky way that candidates taken. To try. And get its voice across by, talking to these congress people who are then trying to go to Trump you know complaining about. NAFTA and saying make a deal with Canada that's great and so I think you know there's there's kind of been a little bit of tension there between the Trump administration will pay Back there So what's next So you know still candidates says, and even, Mexico you know this is. A trilateral deal we want to try and keep this NAFTA as. A trilateral agreement so one element of this is that some people are thinking about is that the Trump administration would wanna get Mexico onboard with a. Deal over autos like I said earlier is a really tough a tough. Nut to crack and once he has Mexico on, board with it hoping to, draw in Canada, then, in say look we've we've agreed between the US and Mexico over one of the hardest, issues are, you you know put. It on them are you going to get on board with? This as, well you know there's some more talks that Mexican economy minister is going to be here later. In the weeks definitely going to find out whether they can. Actually achieve, that you know it's still very much a. Work in progress and I think from there we're gonna have to see what the strategy is from the US Mexican candidate to try and keep this deal together as a. Three, part deal Sarah thanks for bringing us up to speed on all. Of this ceremony, Gregor Bloomberg news economic. Policy team. Later thank you Coming up on Bloomberg politics policy power and law acting EPA chief Andrew Wheeler faces. His first congressional hearing and his first big test up on the hill.
