The US Embassy Flying a BLM Flag Is Deeply Un-American
"But i. I just want to get one comment your thoughts on this idea of our embassies flying. The black lives matter flag. Could you imagine if under your direction as something like that happened. I mean how is this even allowed under state department protocol. so there's a bit of history there When i was a member of congress. I traveled to an embassy and saw the Gay pride flag flying from the embassy. And i was infuriated and so i wrote a letter at that twin towers. That's all i could really do. But then i became secretary state. And when i became secretary of state when those embassies worked for me i made very clear. We're gonna fly one flag from the flagpole at an american embassy. That was going to be the american flag. Charlie thought taken away their last nickel The the consternation the lawsuits the threats were staggering. And so it was truly disheartening to see at the maine state department facility in washington the main flagpole that is the center point for american diplomacy that the whole world would see the picture and they would know what they were looking at there and foggy bottom to watch the fbi. Employees fly from that flagpole. was just tragic This is an organization that is deeply against american marxist organization who don't believe in the very things our diplomats are supposed to be doing around the world and for this administration to have permitted at the fly from an american flag pole. I didn't even. I'm not sure have adjective. That can accurately describe how how disheartening west to see and how un-american it felt to me too overtly political too i mean they say it's not political but of course it is. It's deeply political. This is an organization of left yet and this is an organization to which many in the democrat party have pledged failty So yeah no. This was not only not only political but it was deeply inconsistent with the values set of american equivalent. That we used on our show is what if every state department flag flew in. Nra flag
He said, Xi said: America-China ructions
"Japan's prime minister suge yoshi. He visits the white house this week. One subject will dominate discussions china. Tensions between america and china have been building last week. America accused chinese officials of committing genocide and crimes against humanity in the province of seen john. The mistreatment of its muslim leaguer minority had already been the basis for internationally coordinated sanctions on chinese officials to which china's swiftly responded with its own sanctions on american officials at all a hostile meeting of the two sides last month. The first under the biden some had hoped the relationship would become less heated and confrontational than had become during donald. Trump's presidency instead. It seems only to be deteriorating. I'd say that the us china have gotten off to a pretty rough start under the administration. Gotti epstein are china affairs editor in their public remarks. Everyone from joe biden himself on down. I've tried to make clear that there's not going to be a new page turned in. Us china relations. They have an overall goal to become the leading country in the world the wealthiest country in the world the most powerful country in the world. It's not going to happen on my watch. We saw that play out last month. In alaska in the first high level face to face talks between the us and china secretary state. Antony blinken opened the meeting with china's top diplomat young by referring to concerns over a number of china's domestic and foreign actions including in xinjiang hong kong taiwan cyber attacks on the united states economic coercion toward our allies industry.

Is the Republican Party Radicalizing Against Democracy With Voting Bills?
"Good evening from new york. I'm chris hayes. As the biden administration the democratic congress and the country as a whole trying to claw our way out of an unprecedented national crises the republican party coast to coast has found its mission for the year. Twenty twenty one make it harder for americans to vote right now. We're on track to see the largest rescue bill. In recent memory signed into law by president biden. This week we would provide direct relief to americans billions for vaccination programs money to reopen schools. Keep restaurants open and not a single republican either house or the senate has voted for it instead after losing the popular vote in seven of the last eight presidential elections going all the way back to nineteen ninety. Two republicans are laser focused on restricting. Voting accents brennan centers tracking all the bills aimed at restricting access to the polls list includes two hundred fifty three bills introduced pre filed carryover this year in forty three states in georgia of course already notorious for having absurdly long lines to vote with residents waiting up to eleven hours to cast their ballots fall. Republican governor brian camp has waged a long battle to make the voting process. More difficult in his previous. Role is georgia's secretary state. He oversaw the closing polling places in the purging of hundreds of thousands of registered voters polls. Thanks in part to the efforts to stacey abrams and other activists on the ground registering hundreds of thousands of new voters. Turn out in two thousand and twenty in georgia in the election was unbelievably high smashing records. And of course also helping to repel joe biden. The white house georgia's election last november was also just about the most scrutinized and scrutinize audited of any state in the nation. Remember this they counted the votes three times in that state. they did a hand recount of five million ballots. There is zero doubt whatsoever. The results in georgia were accurate and more georgians than ever before me. Their voices heard so what did state republicans do just yesterday. The state senate passed a bill limiting. No excuse absentee voting which is one point three million georgians including four hundred and fifty thousand. Republicans voted in two thousand and twenty just last week. Republicans at the state house passed a sweeping piece of legislation cutting weekend days from early voting restricting. The use of drop boxes adding new requirements for absentee voting restricting. The amount of time election officials have to send out mail ballots and voters have to return them and prohibiting the distribution of food and water to voters waiting. Mine fact making it a misdemeanor handing out food or drink to waiting in the longest lines in the country. That's all because there are any actual problems with the administration of elections in georgia. It's because the republicans lost it's because they lost and they think these things will make it easier for them to win next time but keep in mind. This is not just happening in georgia which is of course the center of a lot of attention as swing state with the closest election last cycle. Take a look at how crazy things are in iowa not a state where republicans disappointing results last year. Okay in fact i will. Republicans did great in twenty twenty flipped to house. Seats held onto a third. And you know what loads of islands voted breaking the all time general election turnout record and they had pretty expansive voter. Access including early voting absentee voting and same day registration and in. I woke him up again. All of that. Work in republicans favor. Donald trump carried the state joni ernst reelected. They've flipped to houses. So what is the problem. Well the problem is at the. Republican party is radicalizing against democracy almost as a guiding principle. They fear voter access. They want to shut it down. They are using the cover of the big lie. The wildly insidious and poisonous lie. The election was stolen propagated by the former president and his party and written media to just make it harder to vote and not only harder for specifically disfavored groups like african americans are democrats. Were generally although these measures will disproportionately hurt them. It's major part of all this but also just horrid vote and get all like as a kind of ideological fixation. There are a lot of weight. Republicans i will. Who will have a hard time voting. Thanks the measure signed into law today by republican governor kim reynolds new law cuts the states early voting period down by nine days. It tightens the timeline. For when absentee ballots must be received. In order to be counted it strips county auditors of much of their discretion and running elections including establishing satellite in-person early voting sites which are useful and mailing absentee ballot request forms voters. Who didn't specifically asked for one. It limits who can return. Voters absentee ballot. And get this. It closes the polls at our earlier on election day. Just think about that so it would that for a second. What conceivable argument is there to close the polls in our earlier like the fraudsters show up in the last hour of the day to do their fraud. No no there is no argument. There is not even of an argument.

"Midterm elections in 2022, In his first major foreign policy speech today, Secretary of State Tony Blinken outlining the Bite administration's priorities, promising to avoid what he called costly military interventions will also charting a new course on global trade. He described the US China relationships as quote the biggest geopolitical test of the 21st century. And the secretary state repeatedly emphasized the president's desire to link foreign policy to US domestic policy, including turning the corner on covert 19 and restoring the U. S economy. He also spoke about America's military presence abroad. Americans rightly wary of prolonged U. S military interventions abroad. We've seen how they often come up. Come it far too high a cost both to us and to others. When we look back at the past decades of our military involvement in the world, especially in Afghanistan in the Middle East, we must remember what we've learned about the limits of force to build a durable peace that the day after a major military intervention is always harder than we imagine. How critical it is to pursue every possible avenue to a diplomatic solution. Of course, we will never hesitate to use force when American lives and vital interests are at stake. That's why President Biden authorized an airstrike last week against Iranian backed militia groups targeting U. S and coalition forces in Iraq. But in that case and in future cases when we must take military action We will do so on Lee when the objectives and mission are clear and achievable, consistent with our values and laws and with the informed consent of the American people, and we'll do it together with diplomacy from Tony Blinken his

That's the starting point. That's certainly the focus. That might be the easiest thing that prosecutors could match onto because there's so much evidence you've got that that recording the half half the nation has heard. But she also indicated that she'll be looking at other things like Governor President Trump's calls to governor camp, urging him to summon lawmakers to a special session. Um, like the Senate hearings from a few weeks ago featuring Trump Attorney Rudy Giuliani, promoting falsehoods and conspiracy theories about the election, and one letter was even since Attorney General Chris Carr, who we know was also, um Urged by by President Trump, not Torto not to encourage other attorneys generals to fight Some of these false claims in court. So those were those were at least starting points for investigation. But as she said, an investigation like this is like peeling back and then you know, you never know what you're gonna find is you start Are going through these layers. D a funny, Willis says, says she's also opening open to considering not just conspiracy, but racketeering charges connected to the Trump campaign.

"Are underway in Washington right now to impeach the President. President Trump's phone call the Georgia secretary State could be part of impeachment evidence.

Democrats take control of US Senate
"Forgiven if you don't remember it now. But the week began with the revelation that trump had called georgia's secretary state and pressured him over an hour to just recalculate the presidential vote in his favor to find the votes. Just one more than the margin to flip the state and on tuesday we had the georgia senate runoff which resulted in the improbable. Victories by democrat. Jon ossoff n raphael warnock today. Republican produce actually conceded the closer those two races and congratulated also on his. The two wins in georgia. Mean that senator mitch. Mcconnell will lose his job as majority leader because the senate will be split fifty fifty an incoming president kamala harris will hold the tiebreaker. So that's a bummer. For mitch. now there's a pretty urging question given the possibility of a second impeachment trial and generally about the agenda for the biden administration confirming cabinet members as well of when warnock ossoff. We'll be seated. After all the point of impeaching. The president isn't just impeachment. Second time to get him out of office requires two thirds of the senate to vote to convict which is tall order. Dangle thinks they wouldn't even take it up but two democratic senators were certainly helped the cause georgia counties until january fifteenth. One week from today to certify the election results after that the sector state. Brad robbins burger has another week until the twenty second to certify statewide and then finally the two incoming democratic centers can be sworn it now robbins. Berger says he's aiming to have the certified by joe biden's inauguration on january twentieth. That's no short thing. No matter what happens. Democrats will not have the senate majority in the senate until after the inauguration because again the vice president holds a tiebreaker. For what it's worth. If mike pence somehow becomes president in the next days he gets to choose new. Vp that spot does not automatically go to nancy. Pelosi or anyone else now. House democrats are looking to vote on articles of impeachment next week. If they passed by majority they would then good senate remember. Trump's last senate impeachment. Trial lasted four weeks so it seems unlikely we would see a senate vote anyway before january twentieth. There is a twist here. Which is that trump could potentially still be. Impeached leaves office. There's some legal debate on that question. Impeachment conviction doesn't just remove a president could also bar him from holding office in the future. What duke reports. Democrats believe that possibility could senate republicans some of whom are eyeing a twenty twenty four bid themselves matter what happens. The reality is that as bad as the week has been for the country and it's been one of the worst i've seen. We lost another almost four thousand people to the coronavirus.

"secretary state" Discussed on AM 970 The Answer
"Voted. They absolutely do and our secretary state needs to pursue that and prosecuted the vote. People who voted followed fraudulent Now I want to close by talking a little bit about Jonah softened Rafiah warning. I'll play some more tape about them. But secretary produced. I honestly do not believe I've ever heard a Democratic nominee for Senate sound is radical is Raphael Warnock has sounded for the last two months. I mean, it's just it's so far beyond the mainstream of the United States. Senators. I've Encountered in the past each of the left of Barbara Boxer. Absolutely here. These two characters are on the left side of the left liberal leaning Democratic Party today, and when you listen to Raphael Warnock in his own words He truly is a march is he believes that he is really integrated our police, our military and others. I cannot believe these air Hollywood made actors. That they have gotten to run in these races. The Hollywood money has recreated them. They ought to get an Academy Award for these ads. They just found well. So woman fuzzy These are not people who love America who want the best for America. They certainly don't want the best from me and my family. Big government on that. That's not what America wants. That's certainly not what Georges won't but They've done a wonderful job, but all the unlimited Hollywood money recreating two actors here. So last question Secretary Purdue and former governor of Georgia I know you've seen a lot of campaigns in Georgia. I don't think any amount of money is ever been spent. This much in Georgia had Georgia moved that far to the left that it's actually a purple state, or is it a red state? You still don't believe that we had an election in 98 this election, But I do not believe that Georgia values that changed that much. I know Georgia. I'm with them. I'm around them, and I do not believe that. I think there may have been some people who didn't couldn't bring themselves to vote for President Trump. But even Democrats, independents or not, with this radical leftist social agenda that will happen if they don't know. Reelect Kelly and David Why would I thank you, Governor for coming back out to go. Thank you for Nick. Chubby brought the Browns to the playoffs for the first time in 18 years. Go, Nick. Go, Nick.

"secretary state" Discussed on Newsradio 700 WLW
"That little loophole put in by the Democratic secretary state and in Pennsylvania. Election officials and heavily democratic counties such as Philadelphia County. Received funding from sucker Berg's group. Which allowed flawed mail in ballots to be cured. That is of a ballot was sent in without a proper signature signature didn't look right or without an address without a check on a certain box. That there was money available to call the voter and say your ballot needs to be cured, altered or replace pride to election day in other counties and red counties. The secretary of state didn't do that only allowed it and Democratic counties. Democratic secretary State Kathy Book for Book far sought to imbue this illegal practice with the appearance of validity by issuing a statement authorizing counties to contact voters who had cast him proper balance. She did She made it up. Because of Article two section one of the U. S Constitution, the only entity and each day that can set the time place and manner of elections are state legislators. None of these changes went through the state legislatures, whether it was Pennsylvania, Wisconsin or Michigan whatsoever. It simply was done by Democratic activists. Some other little things that happen and 2020 election that ensured the defeat of the president. That non non resident voters In the state of Georgia. Could vote in his estimated by the Voter Integrity Project that about 20,000 people who no longer met residency requirements voted in the state of Georgia. 20,000 and binds. Margin of victory is 12,650. There were tremendous overvotes overvotes that is Pennsylvania mailed out. 1.8 million ballots but received back 2.5 million goes of Internet registrations and intend Pennsylvania counties buying secured more votes than were registered Democrat voters. And Nevada. More than 78,000 votes in the presidential election, or cast and democratic areas above democratic registrations in those areas. Serious chain of custody problems that is normally and a functional state like Ohio, Kentucky or Indiana. Requested through frankly, Rose's office an absentee ballot. It was sent in. Sit down Penny and I sat down one afternoon to talk about 10 minutes. We kind of knew the characters running and we voted from the top to the bottom. And then we drove and my case I drove the ballot. They haven't county Board of elections put it in the box. When these votes were sent out when 1.8 million ballots are sent out, not requiring the person who requested the balance of having had requested it. You don't know who's actually voting. Who's who we don't know. The chain of custody is a tremendous problem. In this election, there were a record number of dead people who voted. Perhaps next time the Trumpster can campaigning Spring Grove Cemetery, seemingly there's dead people voting all over the country. Imbalance in pristine condition without creases indicate that the ballots were not sent through the mail. Repeatedly have been indications. That 34 a. M. On the next day, November, the fourth The, uh, numbers of ballots cast for Biden when a three and four o'clock in the morning where two or 300,000 and the relevant states Trump received 5% or 1% of the vote and bind got 95 to 99% of the of the ballots I had on last night, the chairman The Georgia Republican Party who had pulled watchers everywhere about 10 P.m. and Fulton County. They were told to go home, They'll be no more counting of ballots. So the poll watchers went home. They then discovered through affidavits through dozens of defiance, who said they started counting ballots again about midnight and continued with three o'clock in the morning. That's when all of a sudden Georgia tip toward Biden and not toward Trump Now one last thing 23,000 absentee ballots late Arriving balance in Pennsylvania in Pennsylvania 23,000 absentee ballots have impossible postal return dates. And therefore 86,000 have such extraordinary return days. They raise serious questions. It was up to 100,000 ballots in Pennsylvania. Cannot be tracked back to the person who sent them in chaos. Mail in voting is a disaster for democracy. My source for that is Jimmy Carter. Who in 20 or five with James Baker put together a presidential type symposium in which they talked about ballot integrity. The number one problem is Jimmy Carter said that absentee voting Is rampant with fraud by by organized groups who want to game the system and in this time starting in the summertime Many, including Mark, Suck sucker. Berg put up $500 million in order to hire and train left his activist. And several states that were in play to make sure that Trump lost the election. $500 million Also a book was entitled A Citizen's Guide to defeating Donald Trump. And the author of That book was David Fluff who worked years with Barack Hussein. Obama. And he went to Mark Sucker, Bergen said. You want trump out of office. We can get it done. So for about 18 months period before the election, there was an organization taking place and those and those key battleground states that registered hundreds of thousands of new voters. Then encouraged the secretaries of states to make it easy to vote in contravention of what the Legislature required which incentivized fraud. Under the pretext of assisting election officials safe and secure elections in the age of Cove. It was used by nonprofit groups there with a staggering sum of $500 million. In order to encourage gaming the system to make sure that by November the fourth or fifth, Trump could not win because of mail in balloting. There were approximately 160 million votes cast. With Biden getting about 80 million allegedly and Trump getting about 74,000,100. There's still a couple. You're still about four or five million to count, Supposedly so 160,000,105 million were Cast before Election Day and the great majority those from mail in ballots. I have no objection. If you are. I want to go to Kent County, Boone County, Hamilton County, Warren County and stand in person. Days before the election. And actually show up is a living, breathing human being That's vertical with my idea and voting. The difficulty is mail in balloting. No one knows who's actually voting many times. There's no signature requirement or I d requirement. And then the the set the sanctity of the ballot. The chain of custody is very much in question. So as we sit here this afternoon looking to my right His rain and snow everywhere. Many of us have a severe opinion that the Trump victory was stolen from him by activists who.

The Palestinians do not have to be involved in any negotiations, and John Kerry could not have been more wrong about it in 2016, and that may be very well. The reason why he was not chosen to be secretary of state again and is now overseeing climate change. Yeah, he's going to focus on climate. Well, that's according to Joe Biden, but that's maybe one of the reasons and that's why we wanted to roll out that audio clip because he did not read the room at all in the Middle East properly. He missed

"Take a look at the drudge report, ladies and gentlemen. I gotta say Matt drudge is very, very special. He really is he's on the cutting edge, and we appreciate them on this program, and he's iconic what he's done to news, what he's done in the, on the internet, and so forth. Everybody wants to be Matt drudge. But go ahead, take a look at the drudge report, we want to salute him and thank him earlier today. I had the honour, and I mean that and I don't say that all the time to interview the secretary state Mike Pompeo who I think, is doing a tremendous job, led by the president of the United States, Donald Trump. And also, our wonderful national security adviser, John Bolton. This is a tremendous team that the president has put together. And we have not had the secretary of state on this program. And so we did a brief interview with him. He wanted to come on. He wanted to set the record straight. When it comes to Mexico and we were more than happy to do that here goes secretary state. Mike Pompeo, how are you, sir? Good. Mark. How are you today? I'm good. It's, it's a pleasure. I wanna thank you for coming on the program this evening. I wanna get into some of these hot topics Mexico president of the United States. You know I put his foot down. He said, there's a national security issue. People are flooding into our country from central and South America. Mexico's not doing enough to stop it. He threatens them with a five percent tariff. They appear to have have, you know, responded properly to that. And then, of course, what's happening is the media. And the Democrats are saying, oh, this was all going to happen. Anyway. Can you elaborate on that? And you've actually described it pretty well, Mark. I was in the negotiations both last week and then have been a work in this for a year on. Plus, now, none of this would have happened without the president raising the specter of placing tariffs on the Mexican government that brought a level of seriousness to discussion that matches the seriousness that is this flow of illegal immigrants into our country. And so we got the Mexicans degree to things that we'd previously not been able them, get them to agree to do inside of their own country not only security at their southern border. And we're happy with that as well. But real effort soil return asylum seekers who come to America seeking allow them to remain in Mexico during the pendency of their claim that's a big deal to the tune of when we get it right to the to tens of thousands of people a year. That'll be returned to Mexico and not be here in the United States we, we have to do this. We have to do this. Well, this is the national security and humanitarian crisis and President Trump got a good outcome this past week. Have to execute on those agreements. I want to underscore this point for my audience. I just really want to underscore that. But for the fact that the president said, look, I've had enough of this. We're going to put a tariff in place. Five percent increase it every month. We wouldn't have had a deal. Isn't that your point, Mark? I don't think there's any doubt about that when he raised the specter, they flew to wash Mexican leaders who to Washington. We had intense discussions over two and a half days and got an outcome, which is now execute -able. Why do you think the media led by the New York Times, and of course, the Democrats resist facts? In other words, why, why don't they at least accept the fact that the president the United States was right about this? Mark, I tried to stay out of the head. Of some of those folks, because it's unexplainable, this is this is just a simple side effects pretty comprehensive on pretty transparent. I think to your listeners, let's move the China. You know, I've been watching China for many, many years, actually, even before this administration. They are very of the military. They have built in our expanding. His not about regional security. It's about a superpower that seeks to replace us as the number one super power in the world. Can you tell us what's going on in terms of our relations with China? Mark, the president has taken incredibly strong position that previous presidents of both political parties have refused to take the concerns and threats from China, have mounted as their economy has grown if they've attempted to use unfair trade rules against us as they have militarized the south Genesee. The, the list is pretty long by we talk about their use of wall way. Another state owned enterprises to infiltrate the United States in terms of information grabbing the president's response to that, these are serious, national security, challenges, and while the president's working diligently to get a good trade deal, and I hope when he's in Japan and he meets wishy next week, they can make arrangements on trade, the correct those imbalances in the trading rules to give us a free fair. Reciprocal set of trading understandings the challenges from China are broader than that. I think the president knows that, and we're determined to make sure. That we protect Americans in every dimension from the challenges presented to us. And China does present challenges doesn't it? I mean it has a substantial economy, although not nearly the size of ours. It is stealing our technology left, and right. It is infiltrating our colleges and universities with these Confucius centers. It's in space now killer satellites, it's big into cyber warfare activity, the potentially so it controls through contracts, both sides of the Panama Canal. It's in North Africa. I mean, this, this is a country on the move is not Mark. I it certainly is. And you see that you, you talked about Africa, their efforts is infrastructure at first. They call it their belt and road initiative. We've talked to countries all around the world and reminded them that if these are straight up commercial transactions. That's be it'd be one thing. But most often they are not most often they are commercial projects our national security projects masquerading as a commercial projects in attempt to use. Their state-owned enterprises to gain political influence in power, and we were reminding the whole world of these risks, and we are mindful of it for US businesses as well as Chinese companies seek to invest here in the United States. We, we, we welcome that investment, if it's purely commercial and into design for a noble end. But we have to be ever mindful of the national security risks presented from each of the challenges that you just identified our allies in the region really alert all this in, in a significant way. I mean Japan and South Korea in the Philippines and so forth. It varies, Mark. I think it's fair to say that the whole world was too slow and a little bit of sleep watching us the pot began to boil and the risk began to increase, but I do think is the United States has taken serious efforts. And we've now done our task of educating and informing others about these risks. I think we're seeing real progress. What was real progress, people identifying the risk to their own people in their own countries in those countries, beginning to exert their own sovereignty to protect their countries from the risk of the China presents to them. Let me move to a rain now this is a terrorist state. This has been a problem since I was in the Reagan administration, obviously, and even before during the Carter administration, they've just gotten more aggressive there conquering neighbors. There are inciting terrorist activities, there funding terrorist activities. The responsible for the death of God knows how many American soldiers I've been reading lately that they are sprinting towards. Their, their goal of ICBM's would nuclear warheads. Do we know anything more about that? What I can say is this, the, the deal that the previous administration entered into actually green lighted much of the activity that you're seeing in Iran today, certainly the missile activity, which was prohibited now is less so less, constraint their capacity that is to deliver heavy payloads, which could include nuclear warheads over longer distances. With more accuracy was freed up and importantly to there was a whole lot of money. There was a lot of wealth created for Iran by lifting the sanctions, and giving them the capacity to pay scientists bring in materials, do all the things you need to do to build out a full suite of nuclear weapons capabilities from the weapon systems to the delivery vehicles, and the fissile material that goes with that it was the central flaw of what John Kerry, President, Obama negotiated it lighted their capacity to do that. And created the. Wealth that underpins capable program. President Trump has turned that around or put enormous pressure on Ron, and I'm very hopeful that we can get to a place where we can get to a real outcome that prevents the rod from threatening the United States in our allies, including Israel in the Middle East. Do you do you find former Obama administration officials sort of circumventing our policies by going around you, and dealing with surrogate directly with the Iranian government? We've seen this happen and. You don't sound happy about it. I know you can't. It's it's it's unfortunate when it happens. No, no former official to be out to be engaging in this activity. Look, former officials talk to other leaders from other countries all the time that is certainly normal, but it's very different when you're out trying to make a case, that's different from what the Kirk government is trying to protect Americans is trying to do. Now, I know you need to go. I want to tell you something, you are terrific secretary of state, and I've seen many secretaries of state, and you are, you are serious about America's national security, your former director of the CIA, former member of the house intelligence committee, and I want to just thank you for what you doing. I know it's a tough job. I know people are biting at your ankles, but, you know, from my perspective, just keep moving forward because we need people like you in our government to protect this country. So I wanna thank you secretary, thank you very much. Thanks for the kind words, markup promise you President Trump, and I will we'll keep at protecting the American people every day, the American people give us the privilege to serve God bless you be well. Take care. Was the interview. Short and sweet. I thought did the best I could notice Halley ended it. You didn't know that Mr. producer. You see how he gave the president the credit? And he's right to have done that. In the president deserves the credit when you point somebody like him as secretary of state is everybody knows I was no fan of the first secretary of state. I don't remember his name. What was his name? Do you remember rich Rex Tillerson was never a fan when his name come up? I came up. I said, no, no, no. It's all there. You can listen to the past shows why bother. And he has an outstanding national security adviser John Bolton. But in the end it's the president's. You know, instincts his thought processes, and they're quite good. They're really, really good. And it's going to great team. He really does..

So he finally sat down for an interview with the Brookings institute. You know, so here's what Baker I don't know how he got that job, by the way after the way the the tragic way in which he left. Listen to Baker says he's trying to rationalize why they would do and what they did knowing that the president did not collude. There was sending Ciragan if the surrogate after the president does not talking about vitamin Putin, and any of the master plan cut thirteen the case was about Russia. We've we've written about this. It was about Russia period. Full stop that was the focus of the investigation. So when the popadopoulos information comes across our radar screen is coming across in the sense that we were always looking at Russia. I think the ad on how long guys had its focused on Russia, but it predates the Soviet Union. And the guy predates the Soviet Union and the Russian federation. And so we've been thinking about Russia as a threat actor so union before it for decades and decades, so you decide to instead of just saying to everybody Russia's infiltrated our election, you rather just blame Trump, and I say blinked Trump because that's where you're infiltrating..

"News. I'm Rachel Martin in Washington DC, and I'm David Greene in Culver City, California. Good morning. The United States has blacklisted Iran's elite military branch, the revolutionary guard corps, designating it a terrorist organization. Secretary state Mike Pompeo made the announcement yesterday for forty years the Islamic republic's revolution guard or has actively engaged in terrorism and created supported and directed other terrorist groups, the juicy masquerades as a legitimate military organization, but none of us should be fooled. This new designation freezes out Iran's most powerful military force limiting its access to the international arena. This also means new sanctions against Iran. We have one of the officials behind this policy with us Brian hook is the US Representative for Iran and works alongside secretary Pompeii at the State Department. Brian welcome back to the program wanting David so this is I understand is the very first time the United States has named in Elham. Of a foreign government as a terrorist entity. I mean, this is something previous administrations have considered but not done. What is the evidence? You can bring us that. The revolutionary guard belongs right there alongside groups like ISIS and al-qaeda. This is an organization that has been part of the Iranian regime and it uses terrorism as a tool of statecraft, and it's been doing this for forty years. That's what makes it fundamentally different from any other government when you look at its history going back even to nineteen Eighty-three. They were behind the marine barracks. Bombing in Beirut there behind the US embassy bombing annex in Khobar Towers in nineteen ninety six the G C is often the organization that's behind the wrongful detentions of US citizens dual dual nationals. They also bombed the Rayleigh embassy in Serres in nineteen ninety two and the Jewish center when a series ninety four that's just a fraction of what they've been doing. And so we thought that they met the statutory definition of a foreign terrorist organization. Can I just drill down? One thing. You said I mean, the revolutionary guard can be responsible for holding Americans. Has haven't US diplomats had to negotiate with the revolutionary guard in the past two free Americans would that still be possible? Now, if you can face criminal charges for dealing with them. It run the the regime since the time it took American diplomats hostage in nineteen seventy nine has been used using human beings as pawn in a political chess game. And so we think that's just an element of its foreign policy that we that we really can't try to strike deals with something that we they need to stop doing. It's not just to the tonight states that it doesn't it? Also, does it to the nations all over the world? Can you share with them as it can still happen in moments when it's necessary? Yes, it can doing this designation will not impede our diplomacy in any way in the past. We've designated the Taliban Hezbollah Hamas range of organizations and that has not impeded our diplomacy. So I wanna talk about the implications of this are the possible implications in in response. Iran has now labeled the US central command terrorist organization and the commander of the revolutionary guard corps warned that he can basically now target the US military the same way that. Target groups like ISIS are US troops at greater risk. Now. We don't believe so Iranian aggression to the United States is a is a virtual constant feature of the of Iran's foreign policy if we apply pressure they could try to make a display strength. There's always that risk. But in the past when we've eased up on pressure as we did during the Iran nuclear deal, the took US sailors, hostage and humiliated them on camera. What we believe ultimately endangers American troops is an IRA g that updates with impunity and never gets deterred in the region. And we think this decision helps to build deterrence against the Revolutionary Guards aggression against troops and our partners and allies in the region. I want to ask you about the timing of this the response from Israel was quick, and I should say pretty jubilant. I mean as Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is fighting for re-election very close race. Israelis are going to pose today. He wrote on Twitter in Hebrew that President Trump was quote answering. Another of my important requests is that is that what's happening here. The United States makes its national security decisions in the interests of Americans. We don't base it around elections or anything else. There are a number of nations that we think will benefit from designating the revolutionary guard Israel is one of them. But I think many of our SUNY era partners in the region support this we know that so many of our allies around the world are frustrated by the instability and the violence in the Middle East. And if we want to promote peace and stability in the Middle East that can't be done without weakening the revolutionary guard corps. I mean, we should say Iran in certainly connection with the Israeli election. I mean around foreign minister called this election eve gift to Netanyahu, even if the United States makes decision based on national security is this timing is the timing of this announcement helpful to Benjamin Netanyahu. All I can say is that we make our national security decisions. This has been a process it's been in the works for many months. This was the earliest possible date that we can do it at the conclusion of our interagency process. Brian hook is a top State Department policy advisor on Iran's. Speaking about the decision to label runs revolutionary guard a terrorist organization. Thank you so much for your time. Thank you. It's still very early in the democratic presidential primary process. Some likely candidates haven't even announced the running it. But voters in states like that have early primaries and caucuses have already gotten an up close. Look at a lot of the candidates in the race. And PR Stanford Keith sat down with a group of students at the university of Iowa to get a sense of what issues matter most to them in which candidates are making a good impression in the state will make the first cut in the very large historically diverse democratic field, the nine students, I met with take their responsibility. Seriously. Hi, I'm Alison Meyer. Hi, I'm Daniel beavers. I'm Lauren schmuck. Jenin nelson. I'm Daniels racy Mahoney. I'm event Hugo Sarah shot, I'm Johnny Maloney. They range in age from eighteen to twenty two and all of them plan to caucus for Democrats next winter because they're in Iowa City candidates, come through all the time says Daniels, I didn't grow up in the super political environment. And then so coming. Here with all the candidates that come through Iowa City as a lot of opportunity. It's really cool to see though sh- knock says they can get jaded about all the attention when we see candidates coming. But I am slightly busy that day. So I'll just wait because they'll be back. Having a few self with candidates on your cell phone is the norm for this group. Like, many Democrats, President Trump is on their minds in particular Maloney, says the most important quality is just someone who's going to be able to beat that Trump. But what does that mean Maloney suggests it needs to be someone who can stand up to Trump in debates Meyer offers this I'd say, honestly, the Claudy I'm looking for most of authenticity shot says she wants someone who represents her generation. I think the Donald Trump tapped into a lot of like old people fear, and that was like a big bass of his campaign and how he won. And I think that Arjun ration- is the generation that's going to be able to overcome that and work past. Fear as like a nation. They have a lot of ideas about who they want someone who cares passionately about income inequality. Someone who's in it for the greater good beavers is looking for someone who contrast with President Trump's narrow focus on his base when you are representing the entirety of the United States, which is supposed to be an open place for people of all different backgrounds. I think that you need to be super respectful. So I am looking for that in a candidate. So looking for women candidates or minorities is important to me to or maybe this says, Nelson, I am also looking for a candidate that will have qualities that can also be attractive to people on like the more moderate or right sides of the spectrum because ultimately have to get the votes to win five of the nine say they donated to Bernie Sanders in twenty sixteen just a few dollars a couple of cases to get a sticker. But this time is different. Even though Sanders is near the top in most polls only one of these young islands. She says she might caucus for him Mahoney. Says last time Sanders was the best of an uninspiring field and twenty sixteen. It was really more of a function of I supported him over Hillary. And who's the guy from Maryland? Like. Yeah. Martin O'Malley when that was my choice. Yeah. Sure. I supported Bernie. But this year, it's different. But this time shot says there are a lot of other options. And she worries Sanders who she was a fan of four years ago is just going to rob support from candidates who she thinks have a better chance of winning. I just don't think that this is his campaign. All the candidates have very similar values. But I think can go aloft are there with them than he can as for the issues the environment and climate change your high on the list, mass, incarceration, LGBT rights and gun control rank too. So who do they like than human is exploring his summer internship with Cory Booker? I wins on speak. He's really personable. And I think that he's really passionate. And he knows what. He cares about Mahoney. Followed to a roar Senate campaign. When he was campaigning for Senator. He went to two hundred and fifty two counties in Texas. That's like a big deal. He at twice he might be a little young, but he's in a spirit of compromise. And I really appreciate that. As our conversation goes on it becomes clear. The women candidates are barely getting a mention even though there are half a dozen in the race. Maloney says he's following with interest Pete Buddha. Judge the openly gay mayor of south bend. Indiana has been pretty good. He's forget what he said. For CNN town hall was like I have more governing the vice president more military experience than anybody in congress. And I have there's other things that I don't remember also these super old, which is good debates are still months away. But I had to ask if you're caucusing today who would you caucus for Harris Eto Ernie? Yang gouda. Judge clay Booker Bego that oh that one each for Bernie Sanders, comma, Harris, Andrew gang, Cory Booker and Pete Buddha judge and four for the former congressman from Texas that oh a Rourke though. None of these voters say they are fully locked in yet tamra, Keith NPR.

Her work has helped set the tone of America's foreign policy for generation if you haven't already guest, our guest is secretary Madeleine Albright. She published new book last year, titled fascism, a warning on a paperback edition came out just yesterday, while the title is clear enough, especially in two thousand nineteen it can't be overstated how important this books. Historical perspective is on how fascist leaders take. And hold power. Madam secretary. I'm so happy to have you here. Great to be with you. We were just chatting before about the art of writing and that you you enjoy writing. But that computers have made such a difference. How so well, I think that partially because of the speed that you can write something down and then get rid of it. But also, I often question. Whether the computer works faster than my brain does. And so it's changed from somebody. That was I thank you really rigorous in writing neatly and always having a clean page and underlining and different things. So I think it has changed before you write a word where we get to award that you've written in your book. There's a quote that says it's promote Levy who. Of course was a survivor of Auschwitz and wrote quite eloquently about survival. The quote is every age has its own fascism. Why does every age have it's on fascist? I think and I chose the quote on purpose for that very reason. Because I think that while it's important to understand the history of fascism, which I spent some time on in the book. I think we have to understand why a particular form of fascism arises in an age because it is a pro it's not an ideology, it's a process that I think is real. Acting to some kind of distortion that is taking place at the time. So it's very based in the era that it's in and works off of the conditions. That are existing at the time, which I think is why it's important to put it that way. Or why he put it that way? So what are the conditions that make the twenty first century version of fascism? I think that the basic aspect is something that actually is similar which are economic in qualities and a sense that some people have something and others do not and that part is similar and a sense of injustice. What makes this different? I actually think is the existence of technology, and what technology has done first of all in creating some of that inequality because people have lost jobs as a result of technology. And then the kinds of. Of things that can be done with technology in terms of spreading information. Essen from an misinformation. And for instance, I had thought initially that technology would be very much of a democratizing element. Allowing people to have access to all kinds of things and information what it has done in many countries is dis aggregate voices. So that everybody gets there information separately, and it's very hard to have political parties, for instance, or try to figure out how organised Asian works. I stole this line from Silicon Valley. I just worn everybody plagiarize. And this is where the information comes in people are talking to their governments on twenty-first-century technology. The government's listen to them on twentieth century technology and provide nineteenth century responses. And so there's no faith in institutions and some of it has to do with the technology that has allowed rapid collection of information or misinformation, and then institutions can't really. Act what about the human element and all of this? However, well, the human element, obviously is major. But I think that the to me what has been a surprise. But in doing all the research for this book is that there's a lot about the human element. That's consistent. Which is basically that we do want to be able to live a normal life and try to do the best not only for ourselves, but our families, and then when it doesn't work that you try to figure out why is it your fault? Or is it somebody else's and what happens in fascism and a leader who is trying to sort out this inequality instead of finding common human answer really makes things worse by really exacerbating the divisions and using a human characteristic, which is is not my fault. It's the other person's who isn't like me, and the scapegoat. So there are various parts of the human element that I think fit in the good and the bad. For the paperback release. You wrote a new preface just in December really really quite recently. What happened between the release of the hard back in April and December of two thousand eighteen that you wanted to write a new preface students you wanted to address. Well, I think that I had written the book in the first place, by the way, I was going to write it no matter who got elected because I as a political scientists was beginning to see a lot of the differences that were going on in the elements of what we'd been talking about. And I think the thing that as written fascism a warning. And there's some people who thinks it's alarming. It is alarming, and I have to say that in some ways things got worse. The best quote in the book comes from or is attributed to Mussalini, which is if you pluck a chicken one feather at a time, nobody will notice so I noticed more feathers being plucked and. I thought it was worth talking about those that there had to be some way for us to take notice much more noticed, although I have to say the reaction to the hardback has been incredible. And I'm very pleased. And and I and I think the sessions that I found on the book tour have been fascinated. But I thought that the message kind of had to be reinforced to questions as follow ups. You said the flood the feathers being plucked the idea that's a slow boil what are a couple of those feathers that you that you notice that were particularly disturbing. Well, first of all in other countries. I've noticed is for instance, because I wrote about current things in countries one was in Hungary, for instance, what's been going on that Viktor Orban has really ran a campaign blaming George Soros for everything some of which was just antisemitic. But some of it that was also trying to show that the pure. Of Hungary, and that Hungary had developed what he called illiberal democracy, which happened to offend friend in Russia. So that was one of them. I think also what I was seeing was things that were happening in this country and in order to get right into the major problem here the wall, and I really do think the blaming of immigrants for problems that they haven't created or a lack of understanding of why people want to come to this country. And then having it be already a source of dissension in our own democracy. Then I also was very troubled by just the approach of some of the nominations or more and more conservative people being selected for their jobs so much by their ideology and not so much always by their competence or character. My guess is mad. Adeline albright. We're discussing the paperback edition of her book fascism. Warning, you very clear early in the book to define fascism, and you wanna make sure people don't confuse that with dictatorship or tyranny, and you make the point that a fascist will likely be a tyrant, but a tyrant mate need not be a fascist. Can you explain that what that means? And for the sake of our conversation going forward, how you define fascism. Well, first of all, it's a term. That's just kinda thrown around. And I make that point you disagree with somebody, and you call that person a fascist or always, you know, the teenage boy, whose father doesn't let him drive causes father of fascist so fascism is more complicated. Obviously, I also think something, and I said earlier fascism is not an ideology, it is a process and the process is one that is used by autocrat as well as a fascist, but some of it is to exacerbate the differences between people as we talked about before. Then a complete disregard for the role of the media. I think the press the freedom of the press is the basis of democracy and being able to really understand criticism. And and not to call. The press the enemy of the people then disregard for institutional structures and kind of a sense, whoever is the leader. Is that somebody that thinks he's above the law? And then that always finding the other whose fault it is. I think one of the other aspects that really divides a fascist from a autocrat or a dictator is the deliberate use of violence kind of a bully with an army. And so I think that that we do have quite a few. I the only one in my book as I talk about that. I just flat out. Call a fascist is the leader of North Korea Kim Jong kind of the combination of all the control and being able to put people into. Labor camps, torture, and all kinds of things. But I do think that they're autocrats out there now or authoritarian figures that haven't plucked the last feather. A large part of it. We're going back to the human element. I keep thinking about the human element. And all of this is about holding power about wanting to be all powerful about an individual deciding I'm going to be all powerful. How do we combat someone like that? Well, I think the heart. It's very interesting. You put it that way. Because what happened Mussolini's the first fascist? And basically he thought he had all the answers to things he said, he was a stable genius that he knew how to make everything turn out that way, an incredible sense of self confidence. Obviously, I think the thing that then happens, and by the way, the thing that you asked whether I like writing I like research, I learned an awful lot and one of the aspects that was reinforced at my mind from this was Mussolini and Hitler and Franco came to power constitutionally because the person. In power. Whether it was king a manual and. Italy or von Hindenburg in Germany, they were weak and they needed help. And here was this person with simple answers for things, and therefore it reinforces that sense that x Consob the problems and ex already thinks he can. And I think the hard part is whether a person that clearly has a I'm not a shrink. So I don't know the the right terms, but narcissistic syndrome or whatever is very easily flattered. The question is how do you dent that kind of shortness whether if you point out mistakes, do they think you're crazy because you don't understand how smart they are. Or does it finally penetrate in some way, and we don't have a lot of examples of when it's penetrated you wrote in the book in my view, no country has the right to dictate to others how they should be governed. But we all have good reasons to speak up. On behalf of democratic values as you said, this is very much a history book as much as as your personal experience experience personally, and as secretary of state, what's an example of this in history when someone spoke up on behalf of democratic values and it worked and when was a time when it happened when it didn't. Well, what I find interesting is. Actually, South Korea is an interesting example of this South Korea after World War Two, obviously, the continent was divided. It went through a variety of different kinds of leaders as well as economic development at the time and South Korea in many ways is proof of first of all the fact of.
