Lindsey Halligan: FBI Mar-a-Lago Raid Was an Appalling, Abuse of Power
"Here was Trump attorney, Lindsey halligan. Last night on Fox News channel with Sean Hannity. They had unfettered access to the property. They looked at God knows what in there and did God knows what in there. We have no idea. What the FBI did was an appalling display of abuse of power. All documents requested were previously handed over. President Trump and his team painstakingly reviewed every single document at Mar-a-Lago and gave the government what their requested. If they needed any other documents, they could have just asked. And the warrant was secured under seal. So they tried to get away with concealing this overreach by obtaining a warrant under seal, and nobody knew about it. They knew that president Trump was in bedminster and hasn't been at Mar-a-Lago for some time. They thought they could sneak in, snoop around without attorneys present. In case they walked out with nothing, so nobody would know that they overreached to this degree. And it's unprecedented in United States history. The government seems to be out of control. It's plagued with manipulation, corruption, greed, deceit, and fraud. It's appalling. Are you paying attention?

Eric Greitens Is a Victim of Filthy Politics
"I do not claim expertise about Eric right. I do claim a fair amount of knowledge, the man seems to me to have been railroaded out of office when he was governor. And Republicans and Democrats feared him for reasons I am not quite certain of. So it is what it is and I can only say that you don't have an articulate young, very bright, good-looking, navy seal, Rhodes scholar, run every day. I think it's, I think there's a loss there. And it is what it is. Politics is a very, very awful thing in many occasions on many occasions. Larry elder, when running for governor in the Newsom recall, was smeared so spectacularly by the media, the most infamous of many infamous examples. Erica D Smith, who. If one can morally judge a human from what they write, it's not an impressive human being. Said that Larry was the black face of white supremacy. Is politics filthy or today than it was 50 years ago, I don't know.
'Black Ops' Author Enrique Prado Discusses His Fascinating Background
"A legend in the national security community. Of course I heard of him, but we are delighted to have Enrique Rick Prado on one on one here on America first. Welcome, mister Prado. Thank you very much, doctor. Thank you for having me on. And Steve may be exaggerating a little bit because he happens to be my best friend, so. That's all right. We trust seals. A little bit of embellishment is fine, but anybody who runs the butt course about course is a serious individual. So you have a fascinating background. We'll talk about how you came to America. You've got a book out called black ops, everybody has to check out this book black ops, the life of a CIA shadow warrior, former head of CTC. That's kind of terrorism, the cantors and center at the CIA. But first, just for those who aren't familiar who haven't read your book, will you tell us a little bit about your national security career in the shadows? Yes, sir, I did 24 years at CIA. I started out as a paramilitary officer. I'm a former pair of rescuing. So I came in through the paramilitary side, special activities division, which is for lack of a better word is the special operations forces for CIA. The body of this draft that is from what is now called soko. I have 6 overseas tours. I've been a chief of station. I have been a deputy chief of station twice. I am a plank owner of the bin Laden task force, which I started with Mike shoyu in 1996, January of 1996. And when 9 11 happened, I was chief of operations of the counter terrorist center. Was my boss. After those 24 years, I spent another 9 years doing exactly the same thing mostly for the military side as an SME, but actually doing the work and I just not teaching, but actually operating with the team.
Al Qaeda's Emir Al-Zawahiri Killed in Kabul by US Drone
"An American drone strike has now killed. You may remember, I'm in also operating from such as at 9 11 and the bombing of the Tanzania and Kenya embassies. Well, he was a key plotter on September 11th. He took over for Osama bin Laden after Osama bin Laden's untimely demise at the hands of the United States Navy seals. President Biden announced on Monday night that zahra had been killed and he was very triumphal about it and understandable. I mean, the fact is that it's a very good thing for the United States when a high ranking terrorist in Al-Qaeda is indeed killed. He was killed by drone strike in the heart of downtown Kabul over the weekend. There's a 21 year manhunt for him. Apparently he was responsible more than anyone except for bin Laden for September 11th. Biden gave a 7 minute nationally televised address from The White House here is what it sounded like. The United States successfully concluded an air strike in Kabul, Afghanistan that killed the emir of Al-Qaeda. Iman elza weary. You know, is that where he was bin Laden's leader, he was with him all the whole time. He was his number two managed deputy at the time of terrorist attack 9 11. He was deeply involved in the planning of 9 11. One of the most responsible for the attacks and murdered 2977 people on American soil. Well, Joe Biden is very reliant on this particular story to shield him from criticism over Afghanistan. You'll notice that one of the things that he is focused very in on is the idea that no matter that the United States actually does not have assets on the ground in Afghanistan somehow will still be able to combat the terror threat in Afghanistan. According to The New York Times, American intelligence agencies track down ozu opry in Kabul earlier this year and spent months determining it really was him hiding out in a house in a crowded section of the Afghan capital by hiding out. We mean kind of living in the open, apparently. After receiving authorization from Biden a week ago, the CIA fired two hellfire missiles and killed Oswald free on a balcony of the house without killing anyone else, including members of his family or any nearby civilians according to American officials. A reminder, by the way, that the American military is unbelievably good at its job. That when the American military decides to take you out, they will take you out without killing anyone else while you stand on a balcony at 6 18 in the morning. I mean, that is pretty impressive stuff there from the American military.

Biden hopes al-Qaida strike brings comfort to 9/11 victims

The First Real U.S. Election in 1800
"And so what is this challenging elections Electors and The first real election in this country was 1800 That was really the first real election And as Smithsonian magazine put it so long ago but made it such a protracted affair was that state legislatures were elected throughout the year As these assemblies more often than not chose presidential electors you see what I'm saying The assemblies chose presidential electors The state contest to determine them became part of the national campaign In 1800 the greatest surprise among these contests occurred in New York A large crucial state that had given all 12 of its electoral votes to Adams in 1796 Allowing him to eke out a three vote victory over Jefferson The battle for supremacy in the New York legislature to hinged on the outcome in New York City Thanks largely to lopsided winds and working class wards where many voters own no property the Republicans secured all 24 of New York's electoral votes for Jefferson and Aaron Burr For Abigail Adams John's wife that was enough to seal Adam's fate John Dawson a Republican congressman from Virginia declared the republic is safe the Federalist Party are enraged and despair But Adams himself refused to give up hope
Who Is Missouri Gubernatorial Candidate Eric Greitens?
"Guys, I'm really happy to welcome to the podcast, the former governor of Missouri, now candidate for the U.S. Senate, Eric greitens Eric served in Afghanistan and Iraq. He's a United States Navy seal. And boy, look at this resume. This is a guy who fortune magazine is recognized as one of the 50 greatest leaders in the world. He's a marathon runner. He's a boxer. He's a black belt in taekwondo. Eric, you are my gosh. Let's just say that you are a renaissance man. And here you are in the political world. You've taken a lot of hits, but you're standing strong. Let's talk a little bit. I want people to get to know you a little better, so who is Eric greitens? Well, dinesh, look, I'm a guy who because I care is willing to fight for people who I love. You know, one of the things that we talked about in the seal teams was overcoming fear. And people recognize that, of course, you need courage to overcome fear, but I often remind people that courage is rooted in love, right? You actually look at the etymology. It comes from the French word core remaining hard. It's because we love our country because we love our community because we love our fellow citizens because we love the men and women who we serve with, that we are willing to act with courage. And I think right now when we look at where the country is at, it requires courage of every citizen. Every citizen needs to look at what's happening around us and say, you know what? I love my country. I love my community, and I'm willing to stand up and to fight for it.
Sebastian Welcomes Jack Carr, Author of 'the Terminal List'
"You are probably enjoying an Internet phenomenon that is terminal list with Chris Pratt. I watched all of it last night as my wife fell asleep. I caught the last two episodes as well. I said, I gotta see this before my Friday guest arrived. Why? Because it's the man who wrote it, none other than U.S. Navy seal lieutenant commander Jack Kyle. Welcome to America first. Thank you so much for having me on. It's great to talk to you. All right, we're going to talk about the genesis of the book, the genesis of the TV show Chris peratt's involvement. But first things first, I got to get straight to it as a gun guy as a guy who likes edged weapons. Talk to me about why hatchets talk to me about I can see it on the wall back there. Is this the rediscovery of a primal weapon? What does it mean to you and to the guys on the teams? That's exactly what happened to have one right here. Nicely. Yeah, Winkler say tomahawk right here. That's the one from the show and from the books. But when I was creating the character, I wanted something kind of like the 21st century Rambo knife, those of us who grew up in the 80s and of course, remember that being a very important element of that series. And I thought, what is the weapon that I can associate with this character that also tells a story about him? Tells us that he is a student of warfare, but also applies it in a modern context. So I thought that tomahawk, we go back, of course, well, really to the beginning of time, but in America, to Rogers rangers and those mentioned hatchets, of course, I've been fascinated with hashes and Ed's web edge weapons since I was a little kid and also a lot of people carried them downrange in Iraq and Afghanistan. So I thought this was a weapon that I can associate with this character that really tells a story about him.

"seal" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"I think a lot of people, at least around Boston, were surprised about the kind of deal that Boston got from because I think a lot more people expected to get more money on an average annual value basis. There's the contracts that you want to situation around Rafael Devers and how Boston I think in my opinion is probably going to prioritize resigning him just because of his agent's position and the quality of his bet. And then the kind of X Factor looming in the background of all this kind of middle infield situation for Boston is Marcel Meyer, who was the top draft pick for the Red Sox last year. And it came out of high school, but is given the kind of the player development trajectories that we've seen in baseball with the course of the last 5 years, especially we've seen guys coming up early and earlier. And so I think that this is we're in a little bit of a transition period where Boston, I think, has an opportunity to really have a strong infield this year offensively because of the value that they have at the shortstop position. But this might be a one year window to have an infield with the bad quality of Trevor stories Andrew bogarts and Rafael Devers amending that side of the infield. I love from the Red Sox management perspective, the idea that you have a safety net built in, if Xander does opt out, or if he stays, you know, I do think story is going to be their shortstop in 2023. One way or the other. Because as you said, Xander winds up staying, perhaps he's going to wind up moving to a different spot. We'll see a lot of that will depend on how they view Devers. Here's the other part June that I really think is great about this. From what I understand, you know, story had an opportunity to go back to Colorado. He had a chance to go to the twins who were improved, but we don't think of them as being in the big market, you know, Dodge your Red Sox Yankee realm. He absolutely prioritized winning. He's burning to win after all those years in Colorado. And just in my time at covering baseball, I feel that's important, even with really good teams, you know, guys who've been at playoffs every year, Xander has lived in the postseason, you know, JD Martinez has lived in the postseason. I think it's great to have someone coming in who's got that burning desire to win because I think that rubs off on other players. You buy that? Yeah, I do buy that because I think in a market like Boston when there is so much pressure to win, just on a night tonight basis. If story struggles at the beginning, he's going to be able to handle that pressure because he understands that coming to Boston means that you are trying to win right now. And if you're getting pressure from the fans, when you are struggling and you have the mindset that you are trying to win with this kind of burning desire, I think that getting negative feedback from fans could almost be seen as a positive because it means that everyone is invested in the same way. And so I do agree with you that that is something that is a major positive for this team. And I think it's really interesting in how you mentioned that story is kind of the safety net. I think bloom is not necessarily taking the approach that he took in Tampa Bay in terms of spreading out or not paying guys an trading guys because I think just because you have the financial back of John Henry, there's just much more financial flexibility. What I do think is happening is that he's trying to spread the wealth out across a lot of different positions to make sure that every single position is kind of above the replacement level, which is what has been done in Tampa Bay. But I think when you have a little bit more money, the level of the level you have above replacement level is a little bit higher in Boston than you can have in a place like Tampa Bay where they're trying to cut costs at all times. Two more topics we get about two minutes left. I want to ask you how you felt about the twin strategy and signing Carlos Correa. We talked in the podcast today yesterday about how, from their perspective, yeah, they're trying to win, but whether or not they're actually in contention or not, there's a lot of logic behind after you have Corey under contract. Knowing can opt out the end of the year, a flipping in midseason for talent that's more major league ready, you know, in order to sign Correa, they had to give a draft pick compensation, but if you trade them in mid season, you can get guys who are closer to the big leagues. So you're essentially from the twins perspective, you're buying prospects with the money you're investing Correa this year. I love that strategy. And I gotta be honest, you know, I wonder why some of the other teams, including the Astros didn't do it. Yeah, I think this is just incredibly creative team building given the construct of free agency today. Because Correa, I think, is in a position where, you know, he maybe didn't necessarily get the huge money deal that he was expecting just given the flood of really talented short stops on the market, the soft season. So he can kind of put himself in a position to go back out in the market after this season if he wants to. And the twins are kind of in this in between rebuilding position where they have some stuff there that.
"seal" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"Covers baseball for ESPN and June yesterday he had a story about this letter that is apparently going to be released from the courts. It was sealed up until this time. It was a letter written by rob Manfred to the Yankees. What's suspected to be in this letter? So there's this letter that's part of a larger lawsuit about the ramifications of sign stealing in the context of daily fantasy sports because of course, sports gambling runs all of our industry now in many ways. And so there's been a lot of fans who are interested in the contents of this letter. And this was within over the time frame of the Red Sox and the Astros, all of that stuff happening. Dating back to when the Red Sox had that whole Apple watch sign stealing thing that was going on. And they kind of got a slap on the wrist from the league. But there was a letter that rob Manfred sent to Brian cashman, the general manager of the Yankees, about who knows what at this current moment just given the fact that the letter hasn't been revealed, but there's been allegations that this letter contains more evidence of what the Yankees have done in regards to sign stealing than what has been revealed to the public in the past. And so at some point in the next couple of weeks, the court has ordered that to be released to the public and we'll see what's inside of it. So I'm curious if you agree with me on this. Because I think that context is incredibly important when we talk about this. It's like to me, you know, the comparison that I would make would be to sticky substances. You know, when people would say, well, that guy's, you know, you can tell that he's got a bullfrog sunscreen on his forearm. He's a cheater, and I'd be like, yeah, but you got to understand the context. So many players were using this. So here are my two thresholds about what's contained in this letter and whether or not it actually really matters. One was whatever is alleged in this letter that the Yankees did or whatever the determined that the Yankees did did it happen before after the letter went out from Major League Baseball to all teams warning them, saying, look, you got to knock this off. If it happened before, then that would distinguish them from the Astros, and the Red Sox who did it after that letter was sent out. And the second thing, second threshold for me is whether or not there was real time conveyance of signs in the way that there was with the Astros with the banging of the trash can, was that in effect throughout games in the way it was for the Astros. You think those are two good thresholds? Do you want to push back? Yeah, I think that's actually pretty accurate because I think the thing that is different that differentiates the Astros more than anything is because it came past the warning and also was so egregious in terms of hearing the trash can, seeing the way that it affected the way that players went about their bats. I think that those are two incredibly important things. And I think on top of that, I think you kind of hinted at this, but there is the larger context of the culture of sine ceiling within baseball and how it is kind of culturally always been part of the game in a kind of wink wink nudge nudge kind of way. And the question is whether or not it goes to the point where it's egregious in this kind of sort of way. Like I remember in high school, like I used to coach third base because I was a bench hormone my team. And sometimes you would be able to catch on to the other team signs in terms of pitching and you give signs to your team. So it's just kind of a part of baseball. The question is whether or not you use technology to kind of bring that to the next level. I think that the Red Sox with the Apple watch or kind of towing the line a little bit and the answer is kind of went far far above and beyond by using video and then the trash can to communicate then. So I think that is part of it. But I think the one thing that I would add on to your threshold is the way that the Yankees went about stealing these signs allegedly. Like if they are using technology and communicate in some sort of way. And I don't want to speculate on any sort of method because we don't know what's in the content of this letter yet. But depending on whether or not you use this technology to kind of push the limits of what has been done in the past, I think that is also something that is going to be taking to consideration as about how we talk about the sign scene that the Yankees have are alleged to have done. Yeah, and if, you know, when I first started covering baseball, you would hear stories about players who were in the Clubhouse watching game on television and they would notice the sequence of signs from the catchers and they might run out to the dugout and say to the guy, hey, when he does first sign here, this is what it looks like you're going to get. Which is different than doing it in real time. I think a lot of teams, you know, used televisions to look how catchers were working and how they were giving signs much in the same way that there were a lot of pictures who used bullfrog or use pine tar. Yes? Yeah, it's not like you're using the TV to then use a radio to communicate with a light to the batter in real time or something like that. Real time is the distinguishing potentially distinguishing question about how far the Yankees went. Right, because if you're watching it on TV, like the TV feed is available to the public, like in theory, someone could sit down and center field and you use a pair of strong binoculars to decode the signs from the catcher just as like a fan in the stand. So I think that there's a very fine line to walk here, but again, as many baseball things come down to something that boils down to feel and whether or not something feels like it's completely towing over the line in a way that feels egregious and bad. Yeah, I can't wait to see the letter. I know you're in the same boat I am. All right, you spend a lot of time around the Red Sox and your lifetime, what do you see as the impact of the signing of Trevor story? So the thing that immediately jumped out to me with stories contract is how similar it is in structure to this contract that Xander Bogart signed in 2019 in terms of just the money the average annual value, the fact that there is an opt out after, I think the first four years of stories deal and just generally the current state of the Red Sox roster building because hind bloom's heading into year three now, Xander bogarts is obviously been the kind of foundation. One of the foundational pieces of this Red Sox roster. But story represents someone who I think could maybe tip the scale towards Bogart's leaving, I reported in the past that Xander Xander is planning on opting out after the season because if he just hits the open market right now, he's just making way more money than he does on his current contract. And he's expressed according to my sources a willingness to people around him that he's willing to play second base or third base for the Red Sox. Now he denied this in spring training, but this is something that he is definitely thought about and talked to about with people just within his inner circle. And so I do wonder what this means for Xander's future on the Red Sox because stories obviously go into play second basis here for the team, but he's a guy who has obviously played short suffer his entire career with the Colorado Rockies..

"It's hard to be that type of hitter, but if you're a hitter, who's at like a Ted Williams like a Barry Bonds, like a Juan Soto, and you take walks when they pitch you out of the strike zone, that probably increases the likelihood at some point. You hit 400, we'll see. I love that. I mean, also, just the parenthetically, you don't need, you don't need 250 hits to get to 400. And who knows? Maybe without the shift in future years that might help him. All right, my second bold prediction is this. This is definitely going out in a limb buster. But I'm going to say 400 total bases for Vlad junior. Now that's an astronomical number. He had 363 last season and that led baseball. The last time a player topped 400 total bases in a season of 2001 and a few different guys did it at the tail end of the steroid era. But here's why I think he has a real shot at that figure. So he's already working on reducing his ground ball rate. Last year it dipped from 46 from 55. So he's sort of honing in on that particular skill, but that percentage 46 busters are still well above average. He made as many ground ball outs last year as Eric Hosmer did. He was like a notorious, you know, spiked the ball into the ground kind of hitter. One of the highest figures in all of baseball. If he can turn, say, 20 of those ground balls and a fly ball or line drive, I think that's a realistic figure for a hit or who I see making really astute adjustments in real time. And we obviously know that he has the physical skills. Yeah, I agree with you about astute adjustments. I think he's unique hitter, but if he's actually this year evolves into a hitter who might have a chance at 400 total bases, then other teams are going to start giving him the Juan Soto treatment. And he's not going to pitch to. You know, my question is, who in that lineup is going to compel opposing teams to pitch to Vlad and I think this will be the year when they'll start to say, you know what? We're just going to pitch them out of the strike zone and teoscar Hernandez, Matt Chapman, whoever it is. We'd rather pitch to that guy. Maybe a cell. Mustard, my last bold prediction for you is this. Perhaps my oldest of all. I think walker buehler is going to win 20 5 games. Now that would be unprecedented at least for this era in baseball. The last pitcher to do it was bob Welch in 1990. We think walker Bueller can win a high enough percentage of his games to get there. He's 30 and 8, over his last two full seasons, but obviously 25 and a season would require something extraordinary. Here's why I think he's got a shot. So first of all, last year she was just fairly unlucky when it came to his decisions. The bullpen ARA last year for the Dodgers was about half a run higher when he pitched than when anyone else did, that's obviously just randomness. And he had a three three three ERA across 13 no decisions, also one of the best figures in the league. Now here's why I think he has a real shot at 25. With bets and Turner and Freeman atop that order. I think there's a nonzero chance that the Dodgers can approach 6 runs per game giving him with how well he pitches obviously every 5th day. A real chance to win every start. Look, his teammate last year, Julio orius led the league in wins. He went 20 and three. I think of the stars aligned. We could see walker Bueller, should he start 33 to 34 games like he did last year, have a real shot at 25 wins. Am I crazy? Yes, there's no chance that happens. I will bet you right now, if this happens, I will get you two tickets. You and your bride to affiliate game, okay? And if it doesn't happen, then maybe you and I can agree on something going the other way, because I understand you're going on a little bit out on a limb and we'll frame it, but there's no chance that happens. I think that team is going to be really good and he's obviously their best friend. Oh, without a doubt, but 25 wins? No, there's no chance. Last one, I 40 yesterday, a conspiracy theory that I got from a high ranking baseball executive who says that part of the reason why he wonders if Carlos Correa signed with the Minnesota Twins was because of some of the back issues that he's been having and the fact is that the twins travel schedule is so much less arduous than say the Houston Astros, for example, the American League west travel schedule, the worst in baseball because it involves the Seattle Mariners. Is there any substance in terms of the numbers behind that? Yes, I am fascinated by this idea. So one thing that they do on baseball savant every year is they detail how many miles every team has to travel based upon their schedule. Now obviously with some of the late changes, they've not uploaded this year's schedule yet. They told me they would have it by the end of the week. So we will have for numbers at some point soon. But either way, just looking at travel schedules over the last several seasons, which we do have access to. It looks like on average the Astros travel something like 35,000 miles a year. And the twins, on average, about 25,000 miles a year. And I've never had chronic back issues, of course, or ask myself to play a 162 baseball game. But it's actually a very astute to make. If you're looking to sort of break tides as far as where he might want to go. So I think the twins here sort of made out like a bandit and for Carlos Correa who obviously didn't have the opportunity to sign the mega deal that he may have thought entering the off season. He could have done a lot worse than this because I wonder if he and his representation sort of did a study in which they tied his performance to travel or anything of that kind where a minimum he could just say anecdotally look. This takes a lot out of me and maybe I don't like perform as well on the road or something of that kind. I'm fascinated by the idea and I wonder how much his representation looked into it, but the numbers bear it out very clearly. He had minimum saved himself 10,000 miles in an airplane by signing this contract. Yep, I agree with that after I heard today about the Astros last offer to him and makes no sense to me that they basically held onto their 5 years, a $160 million offer their last offer last fall, and they would not include opt outs in their offer. I don't get it. If I'm the Astros, I'd sign up for that twins deal a thousand times over. And I would do the exact same deal if I, you know, because you get a good player for one year when you're trying to win this year. And if he opts out, well, guess what? Then all the long-term financial risk is his. Yeah. It's very bizarre to me. How often do you have an opportunity to sign bus they're a premium player on effectively a no risk contract? The twins pull that off. And I think, look, I think when you compare it with the twins did, for example, against what the Yankees did this off season. They had one of the smartest off seasons that any team has had. They improved in so many areas and Carlos Correa being these sort of the icing on the cake there. I think obviously sent it over the top. But I mean, to me, I'm a big market team across baseball. I'm sort of looking at my wounds seeing that contract thinking, you know what? I probably.

And there were four guys who also got leftover from a SEAL Team four platoon that wasn't engaged. So you got 8 guys there who have known each other for 24 hours. I mean, half of us have just met the other half. We are training conforms to all that and we were able to figure things out pretty quickly.

"Every great leader knows the value in developing their teams. But in order to grow, a team member has to stretch beyond their current capabilities. And that process can be risky. Giving them something that's a stretch can lead to dropping the ball. So how do you stretch and grow your team without fumbling along the way? From the Ramsey network, this is the entree leadership podcast, but we help business leaders grow themselves, their teams, and their profits. I'm your host George camel, and today's episode is all about building an organization that's prepared to develop their people without putting the business at risk, which connects to our business driver of people. Our first guest today is Mike Hayes. He's the former commanding officer of SEAL Team two and he's currently the chief digital transformation officer at VMware. He's also the author of a new book never enough. I sit down with Mike to talk about what he does to build an organization that's prepared to grow their people. And our second conversation, I talk with Ramsey leader Brian Williams about how he builds amazing teams by honing in on their strengths. Up first, my conversation with my case. Mike, it's so great to have you on the podcast. How you doing? George, thanks for having me. I'm really excited to be here with you. So I was looking over your resume and it is extensive. You've had an amazing career currently you're in the tech space. You were in the investing space and you had an incredible two decade career in the navy as a commanding officer of SEAL Team two. So I want to talk about some of all of this today because it all really ties back to leadership. Tell us about what a day is a commanding officer of SEAL Team two was like. Wow, good fastball question right off the bat. Such a, such an energizing and really challenging job. Nothing better as a seal commander you're doing something a little bit different every day. But in reality, when I ran the task force of 2000 people overseas in Afghanistan, sometimes we were dealing with very, very hard, darker the night operations. Sometimes we were dealing with the softer things like infrastructure projects or things that seals are special forces, maybe lesser known for, but on net, what we're really trying to do is energize people and help people in the organization go achieve great things because really ultimately as you know well, it's really just about energizing others and pulling them up to go do great things. Yeah, and that's tough to do with ten people, let alone 2000. So tell me, how did you lead 2000 people? Well, the thing I would say first is by recognizing that everybody in that 2000 person group is both a leader and a follower. You see a lot of times people hold the actual like one person on top as the leader. And I like to say, no, no, no, leadership is everybody. It just depends on the situation. So everybody needs to be able to lead everybody needs to be able to follow and then most importantly to know when to do which because in a high performing organization, you know, they're usually everybody's capable. And so it doesn't take the highest ranking person who's the commanding officer of the SEAL Team, what it takes is the person who is closest to the problem or the opportunity and who's best suited. And then for the rest of the organization to expertly surround the person who's best placed to achieve the objectives to put others before self and just do the best thing for the team. Yeah, servant leadership, little redundant, but that's what you hope for. You hope for people who have that heart. Talk to us about one a day might look like. Tell us a story of what normal was like in Afghanistan as you were leading these troops. The truth is your days and your nights get really mixed up because sometimes you're sleeping three hours a night for three, four, 5 days on end. You know, to paint the picture in Afghanistan. This is 2012, but pretty representative of the entire two decades of conflict that were there. Being a leader there is overseeing, in my case, 25 different out stations, if you will, each of those out stations being anything from like 6 to 16 seals or green berets and then having them augmented with other experts that were not seals and green berets to help achieve an overall objective. And so out of the ten months in Afghanistan, we counted about 60% of the time there was at least one of those 25 outstations was in direct conflict, combat with the Taliban. So complicated situation. Man, well, I appreciate your service and the service of so many out there who are in the middle of this conflict day to day. That's really intense. So how many direct reports did you have personally? Obviously, there's a leadership team in place. How many were reporting directly to you? Well, George, just like any good business, we try to set up a pyramid so that, you know, roughly 7 or so direct reports because what's really important is thinking about the flow of information and where decisions get made. And in any organization, the seals or now I'm at VMware 35,000 plus person organization. And it's really the same thing. It's how do you push decision making where it should be made. If every decision needs to get made at the top, you can see that you paralyze an organization. And so the key is is helping the organization learn how to think, not what to think and not rely on the people that are further up the classic hierarchical chain of command. And so what I did was really, as a leader, I tried to not have a job. I joke around that the L George stands for lazy and seal because the more that I can push to other people and sit back and watch the magic happen, then my brain can think about what are we missing? Just like any time we're doing work, there's the positive space in front of you, but the negative spaces where all of the risk and all of the opportunity is. You have to be able to get in that negative space and think about what's your organization missing. Yeah, we talk a lot on this podcast about working on the business and not just in it. And it sounds like you found a way to avoid being the lid. You know, we talk about how the leader is the lid to the business and how they can become the bottleneck, where all the decisions have to flow through Mike and now there's this huge bottleneck that's stopping us from growth and achieving success. So what were those steps that you took to put those systems in place? It doesn't happen by accident. Great topic. I love talking about this. Let me answer it in two ways. One is individually. The other is collectively. From an individual basis, I think the most important concept is humility, right? I like to describe careers in three phases. Phase one, we come out of school.

And the coming of jesus christ all of the rest of the book of revelation the two witnesses the woman and the dragon the beast out of the sea the lamb and one hundred forty four thousand.

What does jesus have to say about this time of the end now. We have read just recently the entirety of matthew twenty four where jesus gives a very detailed description of what is going to happen. He said in the days before the flood people were eating and drinking and marrying and giving in marriage up to the day no entered the ark and they knew nothing about what happened until the flood came and took them away. That's how we'll be at the coming of the son of man. Well we know from revelation that yes people are going to be be doing things. People were still get married. They're going to still shop. They're going to. But in parts of the world there will be termendous damage and death and famine and pestilence. We know that god is going to deal with wickedness. But and let me just say. If you haven't listened to the messages up to this point. I do not believe there is any biblical evidenced can justify belief in a secret rapture before the judgments begin in the tribulation. We will be here through the tribulation. It's under the seventh seal that we are removed.

That are not listed in the book of revelation that john was told. Don't write that down but let me read for you. This dreadful seventh seal. This is revelation chapter eight when he opened the seventh seal. That is when jesus opened the seventh seal than what i want you to hear very clearly.

Another angel who had a golden censor came stood at the altar. Now this is all happening in the context of the first verse of chapter eight. Which is when he opened the seventh seal. There was silence in heaven for about a half hour. Why the silence in heaven for a half hour. I don't know. I have two possible suggestions. One because the angels of heaven were so disturbed by what they saw about to happen to the earth they could just only remained silent or the other answer that my father used to give me as a boy was that this was when jesus left heaven with all of the angels to come and take home his people. But let me read this for you. Another angel who had a golden censor came and stood at the alter. this is in heaven. He was given much incense to offer with the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar before the throne. The smoke of the incense went together with the prayers of the saints. Were not before.

The queen is commanded me to cook him so cook aim must said tony. Fortunately tony with busy. He had to leave gertie to go and shout and wave his arm at the kitchen staff. He did not see bertie. Grab collins fish tank and learn off with it back to the pond trying not to spill water or call it in his haste on never thought i side. This said colin when bertie had tipped him back into the muddy water but thanks for saving my life. Never problem said bertie. I wouldn't want to eat. You bet you taste horrible and then went to the garden. Hose and used it to refill the pond so at last it had some clean water in it. By the way said bertie. You haven't seen a gold seal anywhere in the pond have you. Oh yes said calling think guy. I've seen one and as he was in a good mood with burti a rag occasion he died down into the corner of the pond and fetched it in his mouth. Well thank you said birdie. This is really important to my dad. At lunchtime bertie placed the gold. Seal by the king's plate. What's this he asked when he saw it. I told you i wanted my sealed. Not a copy. It isn't a copy birdie. A friend of mine called calling picked it up from the bottom of the pond. Well well said the king brightening up but he could pick it up. The wicked queen leaned over and said to me examines when the king handed it to her. She took out a piece of paper with words. Give me treasure written on it. She stumped the seal on the bottom of the paper but nothing happened. Thought zero shakes claimed. It's a fake. But he's got the real magic seal and he's given you a copy. No i haven't exclaimed hertie. I would never do such a thing. My seal is up in my room and he ran upstairs to fetch it when he returned. The king and the wicked queen were arguing. I never said by sia was magic. Said the king. No you didn't fight back the queen. You wanted to keep it for yourself to pay for all this useless paintings you like to buy. But it's not magic. It's just tradition. It's been in my family for generations. When betty returned with a seal she muddled it up with the king seal then. She held out her hands and said now. Tell me which is yours. I don't know said the king the both the same see exclaimed the queen one of them's new. The other is eld but that both made of gold and look the same. What's the difference to you think i was born yesterday. Do you a magic seal. That's obvious otherwise. Why would you bother about which watch. And she rubbed both gold sales and demanded that they give her treasure. Neither of them dead now said the king if you'll be so kind as to return one gold seal to me and the other two birdie which will stop talking about this magic nonsense for me.

"One day. The king was thoughtful mood as he strolled around his garden. I know i'll go and inspect that old pond. It's been years since i took a look at it. He wanted off in the direction of the garden water feature but he couldn't find it for the life of him you see. The pond was covered in such thick slime that it looked exactly like grass the poll king straight into it both his feet touch the bottom of the pond and the water came up to his knees called out. It's so slippery. And he fell basis into the palm's when he merged he looked just like a green slime monster even the palace guards did not recognize him and refused to let him back into the palace. But i'm the king. And i need to get changed shouted his majesty as he stood shivering by the back door the guard replied public toilets or on the other side of the palace near the ticket booth. The king complained so loudly that eventually the wicked queen opened her bedroom window and hollered out. Let you fool. He's not a tourist. He's your king covered in breen slime. It was only later after the king had showered and his valid had put out a clean velvet dinner suit that he felt his old self again. He examined his face in the dressing room mirror and thought i'm not so bad looking for my age. A touch of silva has suits king. He went down the stairs in a dignified manner to his office where he bland work by placing his royal seal on some new laws. Most of these laws with the brainchild of the wicked queen. Her ideas included attacks on birthday parties fines. For parking your car and your own drive and banning smelly people from public transport if only the king had read the laws he probably would not have agreed to them but too often he was thinking of something else while he worked he reached for his royal. This wasn't the sort of seal at flaps its flippers and barks. This seal was a small gold stamp. It had been in his family for centuries and bore his family crest of a frog only had to do was to dip the gold seal into hot red wax and then stump it at the bottom of the paper. The words on the paper with then become the law of the land but when the king reached into his drawer for his gold seal. It wasn't there. He was rav absent minded botha. He thought i better left it under my pillow but it wasn't under his pillow. I know i might have taken it to the games room to change the house rules for billiards. But it wasn't in the games room and then he asked the wicked queen if she had tied it up. She had not seen it either. It was then that he had a troubling thought. Oh no it must have been in my book. When i fell into that pond and straightaway. He ran back down the garden where he waved into. The slimy water this time on purpose and in growth around on the bottom of the pond. His gold seal the wicked queen. Who is watching from her window. Thought he really must miss that seal. If he's prepared to wade into that slimy pond. You know what i bet. It's a magic seal. And that's why he so desperate to find it now. A magic seal is something really special if you write down a wish and stumped the magic seat on it. The wish comes true if there was one thing. The wicked queen really wanted. It was a magic seal off coast. The king did not find his gold seal on the bottom of the pond but he did get all wet and slimy again and so did the three palace guards whom he sent down to the pond to help him search for the ring that night over dinner. The wicked queen commented poor dear. You must love that gold seal so very much. What safe valuable about it. The king replied. It's been in my family for over seven hundred years old. Get a new one. The kings shook his head prince boaty. Who had been listening to the conversation said. Remember your role sadness. Hugh gave me except copy of your gold of my birthday. I don't make those yet. And so i put it away in a draw. Why don't i just that you have mine because it's not the same one said the king angry. It's not the same gold.

"Seal, who is charged with killing an Islamic state prisoner in his care is again, today, following months of turmoil in one of the navy's, most prominent war crime cases. The court martial of special ops chief Edward Gallagher begins with jury selection day that already is included the removal of the lead prosecutor for tracking the defense team's emails and for suggestions by the president that the president may pardon that offended Gallagher has pleaded not guilty to premeditated murder in the killing of the prisoners care and attempted murder in the shooting of two civilians in two thousand seventeen in separate incidents Gallagher says disgruntled platoon mates fabricated the allegations. Because they didn't like his tough leadership now as lawyers at ask the navy judge to dismiss the case, because they say the investigators and the prosecutors withheld evidence that could help the defense, and they violated his rights to a fair trial by embedding tracking software in emails that were sent them the defense, the judge earlier this month ruled the prosecution's effort to track those emails to find a news leak cast doubt on Gallagher's ability to get very trial and violated his constitutional rights against illegal searches. The judge however refused to dismiss the case. Instead, he was taking steps to remedy the interference. I, he released Gallagher from custody, remove the lead prosecutor and less than the maximum penalty that he faces if convicted of premeditated murder. To life imprisonment with parole, instead of no parole. The judge is also going to allow the defense to reject to more potential jurors without cause, and that's during today's Jerry sexless selection Gallagher's family maintains that he cannot get a fair Kreil Republicans in congress have lobbied for Gallagher claiming he's innocent war hero, being unfairly prosecuted and the president, we told you intervene to move Gallagher to less restrictive confinement in March and said last month that he's considering a pardon for not just Gallagher, but several American military members accused of war crimes. And now you know the rest of the story. Tonio. Police say that teenager has now admitted he was shot this morning while breaking into.
