Senator Kaine the fact that this ministration when all else fails is trying to come up with an explanation. The Nation has now turned to just insulting Democrats in a way that at the same time. He claims to be standing with the Iranian people. He is draping being. You Know Democrats in in garb that is worn by Iranians and that's an insult according to the president. Well look. He's insulting insulting Democrats but Anderson the real issues. He's insulting all of Congress and the Constitution. The constitution says we shouldn't go to war without deliberation by Congress and when the administration briefers came last week many days after the Sulejmani strike to finally brief us. They were contemptuous of Congress. They acted like we were an annoyance. Rather than we were part of the constitutional framework. The reason that Congress is supposed to declare. War is a so we don't rush into it and be if we're going to order order our best and brightest or risk their lives at risk their health.

You believe the explanation is coming from the White House specifically the president saying this all the money was targeting four embassies or no no no absolutely not no I think when when the evidence was is presented to us last week in the classified setting. I can't talk about the discussions there but I can tell you this. It added up too far less than an imminent threat. And that's the real key issue. The president can always defend the nation against an imminent attack without seeking anybody's permission. But if he wants to go on offense and wage war against another nation or a group he's got to come to Congress for permission he didn't want to seek permission so they tried to suggest that there was this imminent threat but as you point out it's falling apart. The President President makes up this thing about four embassies. We heard nothing about that. And the State Department itself in the embassies affected were not given notice that they were at risk so money was obviously a you. Know a thug. Killer Rod guy for the deaths of many Americans and many many others what would have been wrong about killing him and and just saying well you know in general he's plots attacks and he plots Actions against US interests. Would that have been okay well. Look here's the situation. It wasn't just the killing. The Sola Mani Anderson it was that they killed him without notifying Congress or seeking congressional national approval when there's never been a declaration of war against Ron and they killed him on Iraqi soil Iraq as an ally of ours and they've objected to the US turning Iraq into a like a coliseum where the US and Iran will wage war to the detriment of Iraqi. So what you've ended up doing is nobody said that souleymane he's gone bad actors. Sure but this president has rushed us to the brink of war where Iran and the United States are now. Inflicting battlefield casualties zero on the other without being a plane with Congress and with the American public we got lied into a war with Iraq in two thousand and two and now everybody realizes is that the administration said there were weapons of mass destruction of the work. The last thing we need to do is to be lied into another war with claims of imminent threats. That didn't exist.

It sends sends to both allies and episodes of both I. The allies begged US stick with diplomatic deal against Ron. You curtail their nuclear your program and you've maintained all of your ability to sanction the other behavior so we have we have really messed up our relations with our allies by walking out of a deal that we worked on together with them as well as the president's horrible remarks about so many of our allies. Now we've threatened the relationship with Iraq as you know Anderson this is a relationship shipped the US has earned with blood and treasure sacrificed on behalf of the Iraqis especially in the battle against Isis. And now Iraq is asking the US us to leave the country because we we ignored their objections to doing military strikes on Iraqi soil. So yes we have made our allies mad. We're emboldening our adversaries. Russia Iran and China just a joint naval exercises in the Gulf. These are nations. That don't have a good.

"Well. I'm super excited about about what you're doing. I think it's gonna be a really good model for a lot of other people but i'm i'm also really hopeful that <hes> that it'll make a huge difference this november burn so besides the glue account. Are there other things people can do to help your campaigns. We have a lot of volunteers who helped in my i special election with the postcards. Postcards are really popular these days and in a rural district like like the vars where we're running postcards cards are way for us to reach voters that are inaccessible. We can't get up there driveways or they're gated off and i think that that is one way eight. People can volunteer. The postcards for v._a. Is one <hes> organization and i know that there are others but we also you need to send out the mailers that one would expect of a candidate to send out those are critical for us so really. I really hate to say hey it but it it's about funding our ability to do what we know will work in our districts <hes> so if someone wants to write postcards that's wonderful but if they can do that an check out our act lou page and donate real funds enroll money than the truth is we will know how to take those funds and convert that into the strongest voter outreach program that we can on the ground because really it is about that direct voter <hes> to candidate outreach. That's i mean it's in the name rural ground game. I mean it's it's about boots on the ground talking to people face to face forming those relationships and <hes> you know like i said christian ran last year. I ran two years ago. Were were in this for the long haul. We're going to see changes in <hes> you know the not in not only virginia's general assembly but across the country. You know as many people know we have. There's democracy problem with the u._s. Senate until we can find find ways to win in these rural states in rural districts we are not going to we have to find a way to do that and so that's what ruled ground. Game is all about all right. Is there anything else that you'd like to make sure that we talk about. I guess there is one thing i would want to add in there when we're uh when we're talking about what we've observed over past election cycles here in rural virginia i do want to say that senator kaine gene really got it and we need to give him credit for recognizing the importance of showing up he came to many events in our district in the twenty fourth he was frequently here supporting of candidates running now for delegate in two thousand thousand eighteen and folks noticed that just being present it made all the difference so i think that if any potential presidential the dential candidates are listening than they might wanna take note of the fact that we could use some attention in some love here in rural virginia that we they are an important of races of commonwealth this fall but especially don't forget that we're out here. We've got good democrats and we've got people who are looking for change and looking for someone who actually cares and wants to hear what they have to say absolutely all right well. Hopefully there's lots of presidential candidates listening. If any of you out there and make sure you get to virginia well the other thing i would i would add. Is you know there's been talk of it recently he but over the last three years we realize a we lost a thousand legislative seats across the country this. Is you know it's kind of you just replace the roof on your house and your basement is riddled with termites. I mean you cannot this is the foundation that the the <hes> state legislatures are the the foundation. They're the ones that actually draw the congressional districts and now that we know the supreme court is not going to step in and say this is unconstitutional <hes> we have got to pay the attention to what's happening at the state level in every single state in twenty nine eighteen <hes> we're. We're singularly focused on general assembly in virginia. Zhenya is the generalist unbelie what draws the congressional maps and the the assembly maps in virginia..

"Won't it being was we actually had twelve that were killed and five were wounded and the shooter who died as a result, too. So that was the, the total involved. But the magazines that they found with his forty five caliber pistol where the extended magazines which meant instead of having the normal equivalent of bullets in his gun. He had a be beefed up to where he I'm going to guess he had a fifteen round magazine. That's what I'm gonna guess. Exactly. And so, again, we don't know if the weapons they were purchased and legal manner, or how he obtained these weapons. And of course, the extended magazines or certainly going to raise a debate as well. But some of the footage that we've seen some pictures that have come out. People literally just covered in blood over their clothing is just a terrible scene of carnage there. And again, as you mentioned, the public officials even the governor, of course, Senator Kaine, all of weight in with the coals of support and, and their own condolences. And by the way, it should be pointed out that when the shooting stopped, and they disabled the shooter he was still alive. They rented I aid. He apparently died either in route to the hospital or at the hospital. I don't know which, but they at least tried to save his life to. Exactly. Yeah. I believe one other person that we know of one of victim guide on their way. Right hospital as well. Yeah. But again, folks, this is a tragic situation starting to summer out people not expecting to have something like this happen. Certainly we're being told a disgruntled employee, I as again, I do have the name and for those people that are going all it must be a Muslim and all that. No sorry..

"Remorse. Every four years later. Why don't we try something different guys because everything else is racist? Right. So he was how fear politics work. My name is Ashley Evans, and I want the black. All I have to do is sprinkled word racists on anything that is opposed my agenda ready. Donald Trump racist Republicans racist leaving the Paris agreement race says Hillary Clinton not racist. Which is why I'm with her. The Democrats have figured out that fear absolutely dominates Blackie. But politically to the point of socio economic paralysis racism has pretty much become our demand. We are not I repeat not living through is civil rights era, and we need to stop acting like. We are America, despite what CNN may tell you is not a racist country. And when it was despite what CNN may tell you the Democrats were at the helm of it personally when I hear the word racism nowadays. I assume it's just something that the Democrats don't want me to see. And so I intentionally go pursue it. Okay. All right. That's enough of that. Let me let me update everyone and big ups to the young brother who alerted me to it. Tim Kaine has now told Ramnath him to resign after his bizarre speech. So initially he did not tell him to resign. And then north gate gave the ridiculous speech where he said it wasn't me. But I know I said it was me. And now Senator Kaine has said yet you need to take a seat governor. Now, it was one thing when I thought you were racist. But it's a whole another thing when you took back being racist. Yeah. You gotta sit down, man. Okay. Let's go back to Kansas. Also can't is saying that racism, basically does not exist is all made up by Democrats to serve a political agenda and black people need to just get over it. This is not the civil rights era. Candice. I did a little research on you, boo. Here's what I found. Candice and her family won a lawsuit for thirty seven thousand five hundred dollars from the Stanford, Connecticut board of education. In two thousand and sixteen always wrote an open letter to the Stamford advocate sharing how racial slurs. And death threats from classmates drove her to an eating disorder and ropy in this open letter. She said, and I quote, those words destroyed me I held my head high school, but I went home, and I cried every single night in another interview. She told the Connecticut posted took her seven years to move past the incident. Something like that happens you become hostile you become bitter. She said, it seems that a bitter, and hostile attitude continues to be an issue for Owens who now claims that African Americans who cry racism are are a bunch of overly privileged Americans. She also says police brutality is not a real issue at former President Bill Clinton is to blame for massacres racing. Was she's right on that one. He's right on the Clinton part. She made some decent points. Most of our point did not provide context, obviously, both political parties have real issues and will leave you desiring more solution. Then you get but I think it is hypocritical. Kansas to say racism does not exist. But in two thousand and sixteen you got damn near forty thousand dollars because of it are you? Are you going to give them a refund? I mean, really this is on record. I've got the lawsuit on record. And now you're going around preaching the gospel of non racism when you yourself and your family actually sued the school system, come on. Now. You're not keeping a one hundred candidates. That's what they need to do. Put me put me on Fox News with Candace. Always that's what you need to do with your life. Somebody get the producer from FOX on the phone. I got something to tell them four zero point nine two seven zero three not keep it at one hundred. Four zero four eight nine two two seven zero three. That leads me to my next conclusion black people who hold the water for the conservative movement and say things like racism is not a real thing. They're lying to you. They are well aware, the racism is active. They are well aware that people practice it. They all lying now. The question is why are they lying? What good? Does it do to actually lie about racism in two thousand and sixteen? It was a thing, obviously. And now two thousand eighteen or two thousand and nineteen. It is not it is not a thing any longer. They're lying because they are serving an agenda themselves while they make you feel as if the only people who have an agenda are Democrats, and nobody else all of them have an agenda. Democrats Republicans independents, everybody has an agenda all of them. The real secret to politics is not. Figuring out what agenda they have. But it's figuring out what agenda you have. That's the art of politics. And once you figure out your agenda independently and in the context of a community once you understand your agenda, you not only articulate that agenda, but you partner with political allies that can bring your agenda to the forefront of the conversation, and it becomes active policy..

And Mary Louise Kelley majority leader Mitch McConnell says he is distressed Nebraska Republican Vince asked calls it a sad day for America. And Chris Murphy, Connecticut Democrat describes it as a national security crisis. All senators all talking about the resignation of secretary of defense, Jim Mattis. I am joined now by another Senator Tim Kaine democrat of Virginia Cain sits on the Armed Services Committee, which will have to confirm whoever is nominated to succeed. Mattis Senator Kaine welcome. Could it be on the show? Thanks so much. I gather you're not happy about secretary Mattis impending departure either. No, look, I've been in public life for twenty five years. I'm an armed services member from a state. That's connected to the military. I have a son in the Marine Corps secretary Mattis has one of the best public servants. I've worked with in my career and his resignation, and especially the asserted reasons for the resignation should 'cause every American to be really really worried. Although was this inevitable Madison self in the resignation letter that I soon you're referring to there. He said the president deserves a Defense Secretary who shares his vision of the world, I think that's very diplomatically put. But if you look at the letter, basically, what secretary Mattis says is this that the two pillars of American security that are constant. And this is a guy who spent more than four decades providing security is a marine is one building strong alliances among democracies and second standing up. To thorough -tarian adversaries, and he basically said Mr President on these two values you and I disagree, and we've certainly seen in a president who undercuts allies at many opportunities using national security waivers to punish Canada and Europe, for example, and then cosies up to a thorough Teheran's such as Russia and and Kim Jong Hoon in North Korea. And that reason asserted by secretary Mattis is very very troubling. Have you talked to him if you talk to dramatically? I have not talked to him since the announcement. The announcement set off a firestorm now leave news, but ambassadors of European and other allies reaching out to Senator saying sort of what's going on announcements this week about Syrian Afghanistan, obviously, causing huge concerns among allies who were side by side with us. In those theaters. I mentioned it's your committee armed services that will have to vote on whoever is named to succeed him. Who would you like to see? You know, it's too early to say that there's a person that I'd like to see, but I want somebody who will be willing to stand up and speak truth to power one of the challenges. And this administration is those who do general McMaster, the national security advisor and secretary Mattis, they get pushed aside, but we need people who are experienced who will look the president in the eye and and speak truth. And if the president can handle it he can't handle it. But I don't want an enabler. There's been too many neighbors around this president and the first two years like bobbleheads saying yes to everything, and that's not what this country needs right now changing gears. We're speaking to you from Capitol Hill. Are you all making any progress on a voiding a government shutdown at stroke of midnight? Well, we had a bipartisan deal just two days ago passed the Senate unanimously with the blessing of the White House, but the president yesterday decided to do a one eighty and say he now if you can't get five billion hill shutdown government and punish eight hundred thousand plus federal employees. Who would not get as long as there's a shutdown? Yeah. I heard you on Sarah calling him the Grinch about to steal Christmas, which I will give you credit. It's a good line. But subsidies. Senator or else? Well, thousands of people who are going to have to work without being paid over the holidays. You're you're absolutely right. And that was what we did when we gave them a bipartisan deal less than forty eight hours ago that he agreed to I know. But here we are society afternoon. So what happens? Well, what's going on? Right now is the vice president, Jared, Kushner, and Mick Mulvaney. The new chief of staff were up talking to Senator Schumer, and we're seeing reports out of that meeting that there may be an announcement soon about a path forward possibly a deal. I understand those administration officials went over to talk to speaker Ryan. So this is very much kind of a work in progress right now, no reason to shut the government down. Absolutely. None just a few seconds left. But, but we're also hearing from Shimer's office, and they're saying that this deal would involve funding for border security, but not the wall would you vote for that? I voted for it many many times comprehensive immigration reform and twenty thirteen head border security money. We offered the president deal in February with border security money. He turned it down border security is something that we all support. All right. Thank you so much Senator. Alright thanks much Virginia.

"Services Committee joins us now live here on the air to talk about his experiences with John, McCain and Senator Kaine, I really appreciate you joining us today, tell me how you're feeling today this is the first chance. That we've had to talk to you since the news, this weekend Well John it's. It's tough I mean we're all sitting around up here telling McCain stories and we all have a lot of. Them but I traveled around the world with, McCain he was, my, Armed Services Committee chair we have worked very closely together one of the last bills, that. He sponsored and I'm really proud of this I I wrote a Bill to require congressional approval. Before the president, if the president. Wanted to get out. Of, NATO in John was home and we can really not sponsoring bills but when. We talked with staff about it they were like no he'll definitely. Want to get on this when, I talked to him and he said yes so this might have been the one of the. Last one or two bills that he sponsored so I really really miss him I have his office he he had an office suite in. The Russell building for more than twenty years and the only office he liked better than his. Was John Kerry's when Kerr became secretary. Of state he moved into Kerry's. Office and I moved into McCain's every time I walk into the office I think about him And he he. Helped and I'll. Say, the, other, thing John. He helped, me over the hump after the twenty sixteen election, when I came back to the Senate a. Couple of days after I had introduced Hillary. For her concession speech in New York. John McCain was the first Senator. To seek me out he came in found me and he said Tim I'm. The, only one here who knows exactly how you feel where the. Two that have been on a national ballot and lost in the Senate and I know how you feel and. The answer is you gotta get right back, to work and, I, said John here I am and then about every month or two he would say, to. Me are you following my advice and so he he just was a really dear friend and. Also just spectacular, Senator and committee. Chair if committee chairs. Ran, their committees the way John McCain ran the Armed Services Committee the whole place. Would work a lot better by that I guess you mean that. He was pretty military precise ran, it with some discipline well ran it with this but I'll tell you here's what I really, mean that's just rare It's common now for the whoever's in majority, just, try to jam something through the committee in the minority members. Don't get a say the tax Bill last December for example they didn't really have any meaningful hearings and the finance committee the, Democrats had no input here's the way John runs the. Annual process of writing the defense authorizing Bill, he, and Jack Reed the ranking democrat they put together a draft with their staffs we have two months of hearings I hearing from military experts and. Outside experts about the challenges and. That the military faces then they put together a draft put. It on the, table and then John. Get this we sit around the table, in a conference room for, days you're going to have? Your opportunity to make your case to your colleagues and too many committees don't do that anymore we. Don't do that on the floor. Enough that's a real example that he set for. Us so there's an example of the bipartisanship that I, think a lot of people are are talking about as, as a real positive let. Me, ask you since you, mentioned that he came, to you after the defeat. In two thousand sixteen was pretty magnanimous about that and sympathetic to your situation as a democrat i'm assuming you weren't a mccain supporter when he ran against barack obama how'd you kind kinda square all of the laudatory statements that are coming from democrats al-qaeda harsh with him back if i remember correctly about race well it was you know in in a way you're right i didn't know john mccain and no eight and i knew i knew barack obama very well and you know barack mother and grandparents maternal grandparents are from the same little farm town in kansas where my family's from my mother and maternal from so so we were personally closed and i didn't know mccain and you're right i supported i supported barack i don't know that i said negative things about john but i definitely supported barack but but getting to know john i mean he was a really amazing person he was a person as he would tell you who made a lot of mistakes and some big ones And I've seen him and his. Temper I've seen the righteous indignation side of it and I've also seen kind, of the petty side of it on occasion but one thing I really. Admire about McCain and I frankly he he challenges me to be better this way he was a person who would admit you know what I? Made, a mistake, I was, wrong and I shouldn't have done. That I have a hard time doing that, I think most people do McCain was better at. It than than, most people and I find that a real admirable trait I've watched him you know yelling at a witness a hearing about some things the. Witnesses said he didn't like in the witnesses cowering because you know John, McCain who's. Campaigning but in. The middle of the cross McCain said just like well, not that I've ever said anything, stupid and then the whole. Room laughing, and then it kind of took. The tension out of the situation so he he just really was a deeply patriotic I loved his country Every day. Fighting battling energetic and and funniest hell I. Mean I'll tell, one really, funny story you might, know John my oldest son's. Marine and when. He graduated from the the basic school which is that, formative six month experience. At all marine officers go through we were there, packed auditorium, hundreds, of graduates thousands of family members the, MC who's a marine is introducing. Dignitary general so and so's here Admiral zone so deputy secretary so. And so, and says and we're really honored Senator John McCain is here And, everybody like gives a standing ovation and readies turning the look I'm thinking. Men in that, nice that, my committee chair, would come to see. My son's graduation from the basic school but I. Realize McCain isn't there and then. As I sit down and realize they made, a mistake for McCain for. Kane they meant to I told McCain this story the next day John even at my own son's graduation, you got attention And he just. Looked at me dead in the eye and, said, Tim I never knew him read, who could spell And that's just like he was very very funny. Great stories and. I I really do appreciate you coming, on the show to share them at a see the clock you gotta go but next time, we have you on we'll talk more about. Your politics, and, the the race that.
