"Remember Senator Howard Baker, the ranking Republican, the Senate Watergate committee and later President Ronald Reagan's chief of staff. Don't really speak. Explicitly about a deep state, but he alluded to it one time in a cryptic way, he said. Ah! After he did an investigation, finding out that the Pentagon had spied on Nixon. He said. This, he said, there are elephants crashing around in the forest, and he was basically saying that their elephants within the CIA that crashing around the forest basically destroying everything they see including the administration, so the same thing could be said of Obama. You've got Obama Gate. The moment the faithful are hoping that Trump makes moving that the indictment stick. But there is a race against the deep state in the swamp is sticky and deeper than one can fathom the notion that presidents confined themselves isolated not only from the public in the press but from the large, important segments of their own bureaucracies, including the Pentagon in the intelligence community. Always remains a concern long after Well, long after the Nixon here, that's for sure. I mean, there are other times too. You look Johnson, what happened to him? Here's the thing If you are a student of history, and I am It's a major concern. What's going on in Washington right now is a major concern for those who are students of history.

"In the office. A lot of lot of things we've been discussing is a staff. With that technical problems always happens when you want Teo do something controversial. We always seem to have a lot of these problems and but hard work always goes in, and I think Wescott coat my producer for all the hard work he does because he does work hard. I know he's had a rough day, but he's done some great work. He's always doing great work for us. And so I praise him by day and by night. Because what he does But in preparing tonight show. In fact, a lot of the reasons why this show has done is because I had a discussion with West when it came in tonight. Today and He told me you got to go with this or I'm gonna kick your ass and go into his show. And I have to go with this show because I don't want that big guy to kick my ass. So In preparing tonight's show. I can't help but remember the reason why I first thought about doing the show is a message I got from a listener while we're doing the ground zero on beyond zero on Facebook. I got this message from a listener told me that my show was making people lose hope because I played the segment of speech where President Trump gave in. You know where he was in quite Ohio. He gave that speech where he said, you probably won't be seeing me for a while, because, according to Trump, he had very rich people that hate him. He was talking about middlemen in Pharmaceutical companies, and he was saying I'm bringing down pharmaceutical prices. I don't know the pharmaceutical companies like me. Of course they don't because you know a lot of the things that he's been pushing, like Laura Quinn and Desert here and all these other things. You know they're getting mad at him because they want this vaccine. Again. He does the vaccine thing or he's pushing this warp speed operation warp speed, and they still don't like him. You know what this guy does? They're not going to like you. So, Yeah. You probably won't be seeing me for a while. It's a Trump said. And I was trying to point out that it was just a creepy thing to say, especially now when tensions were high. And if I were him, and I said, like, days ago by him, I wouldn't just throw my hands in the air inside. Give up. I quit. So I was really incensed by the post because I thought that I'm not intending for people lose hope. I was intending for people to consider some very chilling an awful truth. And the problem is in this country. Nobody talks about the chilling an awful truth and then when they get blindsided by them You mean to say, Well, why didn't anybody tell me? All because you don't want to listen. You don't want to hear there are enemies at the gate waiting. To bring down President Trump I said this from the very beginning. I was saying for the beginning. You know, and I've been quite consistent. I might add and pointing out that what is happening goes beyond our center of the universe. Politics pair of politics, I thought it beyond the center of the universe. We are no longer the center of the universe. We are now facing some very ugly truth. This is a world of upheaval. And when it is sparking a sense of historical deja vu for me, anyway. We've seen the deep state or the shadow influence disrupt government before and the Trump Administration is not immune. To the bad actors that are forcing him to make decisions he would prefer not to make. To his credit. To the credit of his loyalists. He's made an effort to keep the global from destroying American sovereignty. And in the face of all of this derision, he remains standing. Kick him be radium knocked him around. He remain standing and that aggravates those who hate him. Those who hate him should also acknowledge And those who supported need also to realize that everyone has their limits. In the deep state has been busy as we've witnessed during Trump's tenure as president. Been busy try and bring him down. We've been trying To put forward This controlled demolition of America controlled demolition of United States of America, the deep state Seeks to frustrate positive change for the people. Supposed to preserve their own power. That's the idea and, of course, the establishment general in contrast to overtly authoritarian rule. Deep states operate more or less secretly, like terrorist groups, so preserving secrecy is a high priority for them control. The commercially controlled media is essential to their effective preservation of secrecy and their need for the deep state work to actually kind of sinking in. Get into the mind change the minds of the people change the hearts and minds of the people in the United States. This is affected through deep state control the CIA. The apparatus of nation states under their control. There's subterfuge. Khun B, elaborate and complex the deep states of the world. Have a natural common interest in hiding their existence, which predisposes them to mutual assistance. It's quite obvious. The deep state has declared war on those who wish to oppose the establishment order that is progressing to a world government right now, and it could be argued. President Trump has fought the good fight and the people have stood by you. Not quite understanding that there's a scorched earth policy under way and there's no prisoners here taken no accountability for it's collateral damage. You know what scores Drug policy is? Burn it all down. Start over. So we see this going on and we don't know how to stop it well. Trump's detractors have stated that the deep state is all in the president's imagination. And yet President Kennedy was a victim of the Deep state. Lincoln was a victim of the deep state. It was another president had his taste to the deep state and resigned. That's Richard Nixon. Now, Richard Nixon. 46 years ago. Resigned August 9th, 1974 So two days from now. Will be the 46 year anniversary of the resignation. President Richard Milhouse Nixon. So while Nixon effectively admitted to David Frost, he obstructed justice in the Watergate cover up. The academic scholarship, published since 1977 is documented in exhaustive detail how the critical wings of the Nixon White House National Security Council, the covert operations unit, dubbed the plumbers and Nixon's campaign arm. The committee for re election of the president. They're all infiltrated by rival power centers in the capital, and they were exploited for intelligence of the people burrowing in Came from the military, the intelligence community and the news media. So if you want some rhyming history Tickled to the presidential contest of November 7th, 1972. The incumbent was Richard Nixon, appearing on a national ticket for the fifth time that something that was only equaled by Franklin Roosevelt. He won reelection with a 49 state landslide. There are many people to believe that Trump is going to do the same thing this November. But I may not be as easy as one might think, especially in times of what Trump calls rich enemies that want to take him down. Remember, Less than two years later, Nixon was forced to resign. It was spared criminal prosecution only by proclamation for 311 which is issued by Gerald Ford. In that document pardoned Nixon for all crimes he committed or may have committed in the White House. Remember Senator Howard Baker, the ranking Republican, the Senate Watergate committee and later President Ronald Reagan's chief of staff. Don't really speak. Explicitly about.

"Or wherever books are sold. now a portion of this morning's Washington journal with Timothy McNulty author, journalist, and author of the meanest man in congress, Jack Brooks, and the making of an American century, we pick up where we left off taking your calls. Senator Howard Baker in two thousand five reflecting on the Watergate investigation in nine hundred seventy three thousand nine hundred seventy four and as you listen to that, what's your reaction? Well, I think that's a very honest assessment. And also, expresses help painful, it was for a lot of the president's supporters to come to that realization that there was more here than people had been led to believe. And I think for him to admit that I greatly respect the Senator. And, and I think that unlike Senator Baker, I think Brooks knew his own mind. He wasn't. Of the same party, of course, Nixon, and, but he knew his own mind, and he wasn't afraid of standing up to generals or when he was head of the government operations committee. That's why they called him the meanest man in congress and they meant it as a compliment because he was so tough. But I think that he understood that you had to kind of keep pushing and pushing, and whether it was generals or heads of corporations or federal department heads that there was questions that had to be asked, and he insisted they had to be answered by the way, we before calling it, the meanest man in congress. We had discussed calling it the title of the book that SOB. And because when his staffers had heard people muttering after their appearance before Brooks's committee that they heard them saying. SOB and he told his staff. Well, just think them saying that means. Sweet. Oh, brooks. But there was a clear distrust between Jack Brooks, and Richard Nixon, correct. Oh, absolutely. Yeah. No, the like you said it wasn't so much Watergate, but his control over the committee that talked about the waste fraud and abuse. And he looked at Nixon as someone who was contributing to that waste fraud and abuse in the in the federal government. So, yeah, there was definitely a distrust before he got to the articles of impeachment. Our phone lines are open two zero two seven four eight eight thousand one for Republicans in two zero two seven four eight eight thousand four Democrats. Our guest from Durham North Carolina is Timothy McNulty. He is the out with a new book, looking at congressman Jack Brooks, and just to put his life into context, he worked under ten presidents. He was with Lyndon Johnson on the day that John F, Kennedy was assassinated. In fact, as you point on in your book, he was the one that said to him, he needs to take the oath of office at love field. To give an indication of the seamless transfer of power one was the elected to the house. When did he leave? Nineteen fifty two and then in nineteen ninety four he was part of the group of fifty congressman that lost in the so-called Gingrich revolution of ninety four. And this one photograph, of course, Connie photograph of Jackie Kennedy just a short while after her husband was assassinated, and Lyndon Johnson is taking the oath of office, and Jack Brooks is in this picture. It's worth mentioning that. The reason that he encouraged the president to take the oath of office in Dallas and not wait until he returned to Washington is because congressman Brooks had a, a healthy fear of Robert Kennedy. The president's brother who was attorney general, he thought that he might try to do something. I don't know what that would somehow delay or for stall the president's oath taking the oath of office. He he was skeptical of Democrats, as well as Republicans when Jimmy Carter was, and he wanted to reorganize the government, just as he took office and rooks, refused to go along with it. He said, that's the farrago of congress, and so it wasn't just Republicans or that he was.

"Policy center, a Washington-based think tank committed to promoting bipartisanship in American policy decision. Dr park, I want to get back to you know, your broad framework. Would you talk about this combination of treatment and recovery support being critical to the successful intervention? And clearly we see the concerns about the lack of access to be real health services remains of a huge stumbling block of you know, you talked earlier about the role that Sansa the substance abuse. And mental health administration is playing in. Connect the dots for us if you will about their integration with the White House office of drug policy and to really improve the framework out of which local efforts can occur. I think there are several critical points when we think about how do you improve access to behavioral health services, certainly access to health insurance is critical parody ensuring that insurance companies are providing the same level of coverage for mental health services as they do this quilt services addressing stigma. I think it's critical having the workforce to provide care, and if you think about the federal response there are multiple agencies involved. So Sam says one herself, which is a help resource Services Administration overseas, workforce programs community, health centers, the veterans affairs department. The center for Medicare Medicaid service, all of these federal agencies play a critical role improving access to be to be held services. And I think a critical point of BBC's report was that to coordinate the efforts of all of these entities. You need a robust empowered White House office of drug control policy, and you're gonna magin if you're a state official and you're saying fifty seven different programs from the federal government coming your way. A mess. There's coronation at the federal level. How can we expect coronation at the state level? And I think that's why one of our key recommendations of that again that that White House office empowered to provide the coordination across all of these federal agencies. Will let me ask if you could come on a very compelling piece that you wrote last year, titled how can we fix the opioid crisis and just going to lay out a couple of the key recommendations, and perhaps us you to elaborate on them a little bit one seem so obvious but get clinicians to prescribe fewer opioids, and honestly, there's some pretty good evidence. That is happening certainly reducing barriers to treatment, we encounter many places that have kind of zero tolerance for any complicating factors as opposed to a harm reduction model in treatment, certainly the push to hold the makers of these addictive drugs accountable may play a role and and last. How do we stop the flow of illegal substances like black market fennel? This is a very broad range of strategic interventions, but they all seem to play an important role in. I wonder if you'd like to elaborate on any of them. You know in this country. We have made it much easier to prescribe opioids then to prescribe the medications that treat opioid use order. So for example, to prescribe opioids all I need to do is every three years renew. My DA license and that form takes about five minutes, and you send in a check. And then you essentially have carte blanche. The federal level to prescribe opioids to prescribe the treatment for opioid uses order. You actually have to go through an eight hour training to prescribe you print orphan, and then you have caps on the number of individuals, you can treat imagine if somebody told me, well, you can only see one hundred patients with diabetes or fifty patients with heart failure. And they make it much more difficult to prescribe treatment, and they make it quite easy. To preside on opioids now, Margaret, you're absolutely right. We have made some progress in reducing unnecessary prescriptions in this country. You know, back in two thousand twelve about two hundred and fifty million opioid prescriptions annually, and now we've got that down to below two hundred million closer to about one hundred ninety million prescriptions. Still there has been a significant over twenty percent reduction. So that's good. We need to be mindful of the fact that there are individuals in this country. Suffering in pain syndromes, and who have chronic gaining and individuals who for whom opioids are the correct treatment. But we know that there are there's tremendous prescribing of unnecessary opioids, and that's what we're trying to get under control. But I think tying in a some sort of requirement or training every time a provider renews, their DA license where they get some kind of continuing education on addiction or opioid prescribing or opiate use disorders and treatment. I think would be really helpful reducing some of these regulations that make just that much more difficult to prescribe medication treatment for opiate use disorder. I think really ought to be looked at. But then as you said that just one piece of the puzzle, but he also need to curb the elicit flow, and you're absolutely right fending all is what is driving overdose deaths now in this country. We need to get people at a treatment, we need support harm reduction strategies like ensuring that naloxone. Is distributed widely. They're all critical. It has to be across the board prevention, of course, is critical all critical ways to tackle the epidemic. Dr park end where we began which is the word bipartisanship. And I wonder if you could just share with our listeners not all of them may know about the incredible forming of the bipartisan policy center where it came from. And maybe some of its broader work that bring you to the tables with thinkers from both sides of the aisle. Well, you know, I like many of my colleagues here are driven towards the bipartisan policy center because the believe in the mirror, and frankly, we think there ought to be more bipartisanship in this country, and we're thankful to the founders twelve years ago for former Senate majority leader's Senator Tom Daschle, Senator George Mitchell. Senator Howard Baker and Senator Bob Dole for helping create the center along with the president Jason grew may which essentially allows us to take the best ideas from both political parties to promote health to promote security and to promote opportunity and the opioid epidemic is a bipartisan issue, and God knows we need more bipartisanship in this country. And so I have been pleased with the scientific leadership at at health and human service agencies. I think Commissioner got Lee stunned. Great job at FDA has been zeroed in on the opioid epidemic varies good lead. Shit across the scientific agencies. And I think that needs to continue across political line. We need great leaders who understand and know the most important ways that we can save lives. I do come back to the office of national drug control policy at the White House because I do think there's an opportunity for this administration right now to really empower that office with subject matter experts and individuals who have the ability to corral, the executive branch agencies and departments involved in response. And and then I think finally congress has in is playing a critical role in this response. There's been increased funding towards the last few years what we heard from from states and in BBC's most recent study, while many of these funding streams, a most of them are annual or one time appropriations and without sustainable funding. It's hard to. Inspire. The confidence of state officials that they have committed long term partner in the federal government. And so one of the key findings from a report was disdainful. Funding is critical and another finding was that flexible funding, it is also important. So we went to some of these states to talk about the opioid epidemic. And they started talking about men impediment abuse, which goes to the issue that states need to be equipped at times to be able to deal with multiple drug abuse epidemic at the same time. And so flexible funding streams where a state can utilize the funds tackle different substance abuse epidemic is critical as well. And you're absolutely right bipartisanship is going to be critical to this issue. It's not going to go away. Tomorrow, we need to dramatically increase the number of of Americans Jesus order on treatment. And that will help us reduce overdose death rates over the next several years. To do that we need bipartisanship in congress and any administration coming in needs to keep their eye on the ball and stay committed to this.

"I don't know if you have any clue clips on leaked out about the the molar sending over letter to the Trump team. They replied there. Obviously, there's negotiations for the what do you call testimony that probably will not happen. So I think you know a lot of it, you know, I mean, and if you look at all the president's tweets, this morning, look at the tweets. He was venting. I mean, he was going off. There's a lot of tweets. Now it is kind of conflicting though you gotta think back a couple of press secretaries' ago with Mr. Spacey and learn, saw someone press a personnel him. You know, are these official statements from the president, these tweets and they? And he goes, yes. These are officials agents from the president and the these are official things right. And now today it's no. No, this is not official. This is just opinion. This is just this is his thoughts feelings? Yes, I'm tired of that game. Just come on. I do have a clip that may make you feel better. I'll really. Yeah, I do. I I think it might make you feel about, I'm not sure. Well. Okay. All right. But those those tweets may come up again. Oh yeah, they make him up again. Now, there has been a lot of these statements that have been made via Twitter like the I knew nothing about the meeting with the Russian lawyer in the mail room Don Jr. that's a good example of a tweet. Good afternoon, everyone. Welcome to the lead. I'm Jake tapper work with the politics lead in one of the biggest bombshells today in the Russia investigation reported. Coming from the man who once said he would take a bullet for President Trump. Now, this bombshell goes right to the heart of this question, which I cannot say any better than the late Republican Senator. Howard Baker said in nineteen Seventy-three as Watergate was consuming the nation. Oh, Watergate president and Wendy, no way. We're really kind of doing a setup here. I mean, you don't. It's not really necessary to play the Watergate clips and all that stuff. It's consuming the nation. What did the president know and Wendy, no way now to be fair, Chris. Let's go back to target audience for a second and do a little inside baseball. Chevy's sheriff shirt. So you got Jake here. He's got the Minecraft Mokoena's desk. Got kids. He's a young hip guy. He's got all these leads. Gonna lose things happening. His target audiences who I don't really know. I mean CNN's demo isn't kids and I don't know. It's not kids, but it is. Young is thirty five fifty four. Okay. Is it seriously and you look at people age, thirty, five to about maybe fifty ish. They don't know. They don't remember seriously. So I you know, obviously they're setting up the narrative. I get that you're trying to. Yeah, exactly that. Yeah. So here's so here's a little comparison just because this could be fascinating because I have this. Here's here's the Fox News version of kind of the same news item President Trump Sarp. That's ABC. Although we have. That to which will get to. Here's the Fox News version. Breaking tonight. Michael Cohen, President Trump's former attorney is claiming the president knew in advance about that Trump Tower meeting back in June twenty sixteen in which Russians were supposedly going to offer campaign dirt on Hillary Clinton that according to CNN, of course, in all their breathless coverage, they seem to be ignoring the portent nugget quote to be clear. These sources said Cohen does not have evidence such as audio recordings to corroborate his claim, but it is interesting. Now at around the same point into the news item tapper was playing the Watergate clip and she's playing or she's a statement that says he doesn't have sources to discredit Cohen. You see the two different narratives that are happening here. Yeah, very different coverage from the two different networks. Not to be all that surprising. And then somewhere in the middle, you have ABC punk time, fixer and lawyer. Michael Cohen. ABC news has learned tonight that Michael Cohen now says the President Trump did. In fact about the meeting with Russians and the Trump Tower before the election and that he knew about the meeting before it happened after dirt on Hillary Clinton was promised from a foreign adversary. This will likely interest Robert mother who by the way, today was photograph seen right here waiting at the airport in DC there on the left..
