"senator mccain" Discussed on THE FIGHT with Teddy Atlas
"For the troops to get there. For the cavalry to arrive, but for him to be able to slow up the onslaught of pedraza. It was brilliant. It wasn't talked about. But it was instinctive. It was his innate intelligence to understand what he had to do. It just at that moment when he was faced with survival, with winning the losing. What he needed to do, how he needed to behave and react. And he did. And he held him off enough with for the rest of them. He lost some of those late rounds. That's what made it close. But he was able to also hold enough ground in those late rounds with delete that he built for the first 7 rounds to win a fight by two three points. And keep his title. That's what I saw. That's what I appreciate it. That's what I wanted to fans to make sure that they could see it and appreciate. All the dimensions that go into this great sport. You know, mentally, emotionally, you know, technically, physically. Everything. So that was a terrific fight, really. I applaud both guys. They both behave like champions, but rather behaved like a former champion and bob boss of behaved like a champion who's just not ready to be a former champion. He's just not ready to be a former one. Not yet. Not yet. I love that. I love that pod from the movie. Gladiator, where they got the guys that are the gladiators, right? And Russell Crowe, you know, who's the great general? What's his name, general arm that became a slave? Maximus. Maximus maximum. How can I get back from a great maximus? And so maximum is with these with all these other slaves now gladiators and one of them is having a conversation before they go into another one of these death matches basically. And the guy says, do you believe in the afterlife? And maxim is the great maximus says, yes, I do. Do you believe you'll be with your family in the afterlife? He goes, yes, I do. But not yet. I love that. He goes, but not yet. Not yet. Create diet today. We ate diet today. I love it. And that's kind of what it was with Barbosa that someday he will have to probably have his title taken away from him. Somebody had taken away from him, but not yet. Not yet. Well, in the, in the main event, Emanuel navarrete lamb lamb Smith, lamb Wilson, what an incredible fight this was back and forth back and forth, both guys were awesome, but you know who wasn't awesome was referee Chris Flores. I think for me, the biggest takeaway, the only thing I could look forward in that portfolio. I mean, teddy knocks him done. That boy at that point found that was rough, I know. Never read some questions. I mean, he was out. He got caught a good shot. I think it hit him like he was way too much. I think they added up it was like 27. They didn't even talk about it, which was able to watch. It was crazy. It's like watching a crime. It's like watching a banker, rob. And you just watching a bank robbed and you watch, you're watching something, somebody get robbed down the street and you just stand in it saying, hey, you know, what are you getting for lunch? Are you getting tuna again today? Or you're gonna switch over to the chicken salad. Hey, there's something going on over here. There's a vertical going on here. I've been using for us to watch and kind of dismiss as business as usual. But just think for a second, really think about this. If that's your son, brother, best friend, how pissed off are you sitting there watching ref, what are you doing? Let's go get back at it. I haven't too often. That was his chance, man. This kid was an 18 to one underdog. I had no dog in this fight. I don't care who wins. Yeah, I will say this. I will. I miss him. I'm with you. The kid had a chance to do something special and the ref did everything he could to help that kid again. Probably never have it again. Probably never have it against like seeing Hailey's comet. You missing your message, seeing the eclipse of the moon. The total eclipse of the seriously. If you're not there at 10 o'clock on Monday night on December 8th, if you're not out there on that date, that they tell you that it's happening. You ain't seen it again. It's gone. It's done. Well, a lot of times that's what this is. You're right. This is their one shot. Everything lined up perfect for them. I never met for the title. If they don't, if they don't get it done, that day they ain't getting it done ever again. Get into one underdog. He had the kid hurt very badly with time to finish him. Who knows? Maybe he doesn't at the end of just, but I mean, can you please be fair? Can you please just count because if the roles were reversed, they would have been like, that ref would have given him the frigging as soon as he hit 8. He'd be like, go ahead. As soon as he realized the guy could still stand up, but nope, not this time, they made sure that he was perfectly fine. They did what they could to make sure he was recovered, but man, you have to feel for Lim Smith. And like I said, I had no dog in the fight. I don't care either way. I didn't care who won. But I love a competitive fight and you just hate to see someone get cheated. This just blatant cheating on behalf of the ref. I don't care. You can sugarcoat it however you want. You have one job, dude. You're the ref. Give the guy an 8 count. Make sure he's okay to continue and let's go. Not 27 seconds while you messing around with malt pieces and everything. Man, it's just a heartbreaking for the kid lamb Smith. I hate to see it. Never Rhett ends up stopping him. I think what's at the 9th, I'm sorry. I should know this, but he stopped him later at night. He knocked him down a couple times. He hadn't heard about it. It was a good stop, and she was out, it was over. It took over the 7 to 8 to 9th. The night. Listen, welcome to my world friend. All right, buddy. Welcome to my world. Almost 30 years of watching this stuff calling the fights on ESPN scene it over and over and over and over and over again. I mean, really, it does something to you after a while. It's like a 100%. It really, you know, to the point where I was trying to put together a national commission to stop this stuff. You know, with the late senator John McCain, the late great senator McCain, who was a hero of this country, you know, in a war. And he was a POW. And it's interesting that I wonder what I wonder what power is working against it. But believe me, there were pals working against it and some of those powers were given money that was public domain. We were able to look it up as we were going down the road with this, they were given our campaign, they were getting put it this way. Those powers that stopped it from happening, you know, in the government that we needed not to stop it from happening. To do what McCain wanted to do, which was to get this national commission which I wanted with other people with me wanted. There were pals in a government that they were getting campaign contributions from certain promoters that you might recognize their names, okay?

"Home for the hawks cats and the NFL WGN. I just want to tell you that there's a lot of times it doesn't feel good in the United States Senate. It feels good right now. 86 to 11, folks. 86 to 11. Senator John tester, chair of the Senate veterans affairs committee on the passage of the toxic burn picked legislation, a high point for the Senate, he says, I'm curious what our guests would have to say about just how well Congress in general has responded. I would assume that you could say they mean well. But you can fill in the blank, Darren. Darren sell Nick in general, how has Congress responded? Slowly? Yeah, Congress was always responsible. It's an evolving process to understand and there's lots of competing priorities and conflicts in terms of doing it. Also, the challenge here was the science. And the process for the science. And when you have processes and science that goes back decades and don't really get updated, there was lots of confusion about how to do this, what the cost was and the significance of this. So it's only really been the last couple of years where people have gotten clarity and enough momentum to move it forward. But it's also a little silly things that are put in the law that cause it because we want to get detailed. And then they just give you an example of one little silly thing. It didn't really probably hold up the law, but it's the kind of thing that you just scratch your head, expansion of opportunities for housekeeping aids. I just make you laugh. Why would you put that in a bill to serve veterans to make sure they get proper compensation in healthcare? I'm not quite sure. I guess I'm missing the point. The point is that people like to put pet projects in these things and pet projects hold up legislation that's the thing. Yes, they certainly do. Now then, granted, there are some veterans ailments like perhaps exposure to these toxic burn pits that are specific to the military. And there may well be some circumstances in which you need to be treated at a VA center. But there are other things that probably any competent hospital or clinic could handle. And I'm curious your thoughts about vouchers if a veteran has a problem, you can drive 5 miles to your local hospital with your voucher or 250 miles to some VA health center a long ways away. Your thoughts about vouchers. Well, we've studied the issues in senator McCain was a fan of vouchers. The problem with vouchers is it's not a good practice in healthcare. So you it's hard to get records. It's hard to manage the care so to speak. But there is an alternative way to do it. And it's a very well recognized way. And that's why we created these really large networks. And in the large networks, you can pretty much find any kind of doctor you want closely buy. You get DA is like a million doctors in the network. And so actually, there's a proposal by senator Blackburn, which was based on a commission that I was on in 2015, 2016, a bipartisan commission that is kind of like the voucher. But we already do this with urgent care with urgent care. You can go to any urgent care clinic in the network and you just go. You don't ask VA's permission. You just go and make sure you're a veteran in the role of the healthcare. They could carry the center of the bill. We want to do that sort of thing with the rest of the care. So if you're a veteran, if the VA is too long or wait or too far away, that you can just go ahead and for any provider that's in this network, those million providers around the country that we have right now. And you can just go. You just have to use the primary care, especially care. And we've analyzed this before. And it's not really much more expensive and veterans would you would always be assured that eventually would never have to wait too long. Drive too far because if they did, they would have any bureaucrat, which is the handicapped with the access standards they still have to approve you. You could just go and go. And we know it works because we've been doing it with urgent care since 2019. And veterans have no complaints about urgent care. They do have for the rest of their care because of bureaucracy getting the way a lot of times, but now research can we want to do the same thing with the health missions healthcare freedom act that senator Blackburn is doing. All right, I want to learn more about the veterans healthcare freedom act to learn more about that when we come back in just a moment

"To happen with this bill in the house Leaders have said that they're still looking at it But the Bloomberg opinion editors are noting here that maybe the way to go is not daylight savings time but to do the opposite to do what we have in November through March that way there is going to be light out when kids are getting ready to go to school in the morning when we're all driving to work Rick Davis I just want you to weigh in on this Do you have a preference here for DST versus I guess just DT I think my greatest fear is what you guys were just talking about which is all these states get rogue and decide to set their own times You know this is what I've had to put up with for the 25 years that I work with senator McCain in Arizona where sometimes it's three hours delayed from Washington sometimes it's two And honestly it's so confusing that I think if they could just settle on one thing And I've heard the debate in Arizona that I think the senators there cinnamon and Kelly I think are opting to say why don't we just become mountain time And so I think that you're right a lot of these states are going to scramble I think confusion could rain supreme It wouldn't be the first time that the Senate and the House did something that resulted in a rebellion from the states But at the end of the day it's almost irrelevant anymore with the modern society we live in Whether you're getting up with the dark or getting up with the light that's what they make headlights for drive to work just make sure you pay attention to the road We're talking about Arizona senator kyrsten sinema who was in the Senate chamber kind of presiding over things when it happened She told BuzzFeed news that she was surprised that someone didn't object and then noted that Arizona Arizona does not change its clocks quote because we're smart That's such an Arizona way of putting it Arizona is so comfortable standing out from the rest of America You know I actually was doing some research on this And I have to give credit to the Reynolds center on business journalism because they did this compilation of what are the industries in the groups that are for or against permanent daylight savings time One that I found interesting maybe confusing was there's been this debate in Colorado specifically as to whether Colorado is also going to do permanent daylight savings And the ski industry is against that Assuming that they would have to open later because the sun would rise later and people wouldn't stay later because they'd want to go home and beat the traffic I don't know how logical that is But Jeannie do we know that's one example Do we know who's really for this and against this Yeah and another group to your point that I've heard that's for it on the other side are people in the sunbelt people and tourist areas where the longer day means people will do the opposite They will be out spending more money and of course as we come out hopefully of the pandemic and we see bars and restaurants and places where people spend money into the evening entertainment which has been so hard hit by the pandemic that is going to be potentially a welcome change So I do think we're going to see these sort of fights for and against this depending on what people feel is in their interest You know one of the fascinating things you know I'm old enough to remember before we had all these convoluted iPhones and everything where you actually had to change the clock God forbid you forgot to do that Yeah Emily now you wake up it's changed for you but there was a time I could tell you Where you had to do it manually So we have it a little bit easier these days Rick Davis you remember that I think Back in the day I'm looking forward to telling my kids about the days when we had to change our clocks We've been talking with Genie Chan Zeno and Rick Davis but we also it is women's history month and every day this month we're celebrating significant moments in women's history So we want to bring you our installment for today Friday march 18th Here is Bloomberg's renita young On this day in women's history in 1970 over 100 women staged a sit in at the lady's home journal occupying the office for 11 hours There were protesting the way the magazine depicted female interests and perspectives At the time the staff of the ladies home journal was comprised mostly of men Protesters argued that the content focused almost entirely on housework beauty and the support of the patriarchy On that day protesters made demands to the editor in chief John met Carter and senior editor leonor Hershey who was one of the only women on staff Among those demands were the hiring of a female editor in chief and in all female editorial staff raising women's salaries and hiring diverse women Later on in 1973 Hershey was named editor in chief That's today in women's history I'm raini young Bloomberg radio Thank you so much for nita and thank you as well to bridge point

"In the world. But if it's going to really live up to that for the benefit of the fighters in the fans, then you need somebody to change things, not to allow these promoters. I'm not going to get heavy into it because it gets a little crazy. But when I was talking to senator senator McCain, and we had a little committee together. Of good people. And we were doing this in secret sort of, I guess, until it was going to get to the point that we were hoping it was going to get to. And we will have a meeting every week on the phone. When we came with his people, and we formulated a sort of working script, if you will, are working possible commission policies. And we will put it together, the right things. Look it out for the final all that stuff. And we ran into roadblocks. And McCain said, I'm getting a roll block from the senator and Nevada from this guy. From that guy. And we all looked up. It's public domain. They had given they had been given donations when they campaigned, obviously, by both Arab and king. And they were asking to see what we were doing before it could get passed. You know, it has to go to the house. It has to go through all the things I had to go through. And they were asking, and I couldn't believe it. I literally said to McCain, it was about 7 of us on a conference call. I said, are you serious? You mean, they said that we have to show it to him and we have to show to king for their approval. That would be like try to do a new drug law, and you have to show it to the medallion cartel. I mean, for permission to do this new drug law. And it was just very frustrating. And I think that's where the more obviously that's where the benefit of a dictator comes in. As long as he's not really chopping edge off, is that you could get those things done that are for the best. And I'll finish on this. And it doesn't do any greatness when I say this for myself but it's all right. Even over there, at ESPN. And a lot of it's not just there. It's a lot of networks now. But what these promoters, because the networks partner obviously is the promoter. What they're turning these networks is into is a farm system for the promoter to continue to sign fight as for years. Good fighters to decide on guarantee they're going to be on TV. And then for the next X amount of years, just fight some level opponents until they get to a title. That's what it's become. It's a farm system to develop fighters for the benefit of the promoter to get these guys to 2016. 1705 title have the title and just keep building from there for as many years as they could give the thing going with the network. Do you agree with that? That's all. 100%. You're absolutely right. And it's one of the many things that is broken. The sport of boxing. You know, when me and my partners got into this 20 years ago, our goal and what has remained my goal is to build this sport into the biggest sport in the world. You know, and 15 years ago, people thought I was nuts when I was saying that. But look at what we've done. Look at what we're doing. That's never been the goal of boxing. It's never been the goal of the box. Every time they put on a fight, it's like a going out of business sale. How much money can we steal from everybody? You know, and every time you turn off the TV, you're pissed off that you stay at home on Saturday and watch the fight. You wish you did something else. I love when you describe it that way, Dane as a going out of business, 'cause that's exactly right. Let's get as much money as we can never mind what happens the next day. We'll start over again tomorrow. There's no there's no forethought. And you don't even care if the fans are happy with the product. You don't care, because that guy is going to fight for over another year. Again, anyway. And everybody will forget how shitty this fight was. And by the next one. I hate to use the same but to say it's true. Everyone's wild, they throw the fans a bone. You know, they know they do. I'm not going to offend the dogs because I'd be a dog too that. But they form a bone every once in a while. A good fight, but that is right back to business as usual. Here's the next question, Dana. The only question that what I did for this talk about begs to be asked, you talked some years ago about coming into the boxing business. Is that still a possibility? Yeah, I'm still kicking the tires and looking around. It's a very complicated, you know, the sport's such a mess. It's literally a mask. And, you know, to pull it off, you have to actually get in there and clean it up. And you know, I've been working on this for years. And I don't know, we'll see what happens. Hey guys, today's interview is brought to you by athletic greens, the all in one daily drink to support better health and peak performance..

"In boxing Hall of Famer teddy Atlas and the great today's special guest the leader of the UFC, the great Dana White Dana how you doing man? I'm awesome. How are you guys? Good, Dana. Dana, thank you for coming on the show. Appreciate it. Thanks for having me. Merry Christmas, happy holidays to you and your family. Same to you, brother. Yeah. And for happy new year, I'll get right to it. Well, first of all, before I get right to it, I'd like to. Thank my partner here for not using the opening that he's been using. And omitting that for this one time at least a way he usually says the voice of MMA. So he usually says teddy Atlas the voice of MMA and I'm just Danny, you'll appreciate this. You can imagine the responses we get in the comments when I go ahead and now join us always by the voice of MMA teddy as the fans, the hardcore fans, they go crazy. They can't get the they can't accept the joke. They're like, is this guy crazy? Is he a moron? And I'm like, deal with it, dude. We're taking over. Teddy's taken over. Anyway. I love it. I'm glad he admitted that. Listen, as I said, thanks for coming on. And congratulations for the last 20 years of building the brand of the UFC to level that you have. Thanks. I appreciate it, brother. Man, it's pretty extraordinary. Pretty extraordinary to be honest with you. And you've done something that quite frankly, I didn't think it was possible to do. You've surpassed boxing in the ratings and you know I get a lot of people that get kind of crazy with me. People like some of the some of the network heads like the guy over at showtime, whatever his name is. And he's a jackass. I mean, you know, they get all kinds of bent out of shape. Oh, no. It's not accurate. Is that that he shouldn't be saying that? And it is accurate, because I say it within the realm that is the proper realm. I say it on a week to week basis. You have surpassed the UFC as the past ratings for regular bugsy shows. Now, look, I'm not talking about the universe where a Canelo fight a triple G what are those fights? Or if the fight never happened, but a few he had for Joshua. That's at the universe. But as far as and you guys do pretty damn big, beautiful versus when you go on those big pay per view cards. But I'm talking about on a week to week basis. You have you have leap as boxing with the rates, listen, the people that get mad shouldn't get mad at me for tone what I see because it's a simple formula. It's not that freaking complicated. You're putting on competitive fights. Every week you know you're going to get a good competitive fight with a favor. Could easily lose. And it's on a regular basis where a guy with 5 laws of 6 laws. It's not a dead sentence. Like it is in boxing. Those guys have learned how to fight. And what it means is they can compete with anybody in a freaking world. And they do. And the problem would the problem with boxing is that these networks with their promoters, the promoters really the network is like a sugar daddy for the promoter. It's kind of I ate to talk that plane in that honest about it. And that rural about it. I'm sorry. And I know people are going to be all pissed off at me. And that's okay. Won't be the first time getting line. But they go and they sell what themselves in a way that they connect with the promoter and the promoters put on a's versus B's. The house fighter would the opponent. And most of the time you know how that's going to end. Not only the house fight is going to win, but it's not going to be competitive. And people get tired of that. People don't want to go to a movie when they know what the end is going to be before the movie starts. So they get tired of it. And what do they do? They go to the UFC. So I just wanted, I was just wondering if you agree with that and what your thoughts were. Yeah, you're a 100% right. And listen, at the end of the day, you and I both love the sport of boxing. But you and I are both brutally honest about all the problems with the sport of boxing. And everything that you're saying is reality and these guys don't want to hear reality. The truth of the matter is we have the largest pay per view provider on earth. And when you talk about showtime, showtime is a very, very small universe. You know what I mean? Those guys, showtime, and all these cord cutters now, not a lot of people have showtime. So when these flights happen, they're on a lot of people that are watching them. I'm on ESPN. You know? And there's a big difference. And you're absolutely right. Every week we put on fights with the best versus the best in the world. And many times, the massive underdogs in this sport win, which means a Pena. Fun. Exciting. You know, you get these holy shit moments. And more importantly, it makes it very fun to bet on too. So I agree with everything you're saying without sounding like we're smashing the sport of boxing. We all love it. David, bugs in my life. I've been in almost, you know, sometimes I hesitate to say it, but almost 50 years of my life. I don't know what hesitate because I'm embarrassed by it. It's been good to my family. It's been good to me. I love boxing. It's my life. But you have to, you have to tell the truth. And you know what? All these problems, teddy are why we've been able to overcome boxing and beatboxing. I saw this shit over 20 years ago. I saw all the problems. And I wanted to change, you know, everything that I thought they were doing wrong in boxing with the way that we ran the UFC. You know, for the years that I had the platform and ESPN, I'm not putting a metal on myself. I got paid to do a job. But at the end of the day, I had a choice to make. Do the job get my paycheck. Get the figure out of there. Or, you know, once in a while, try to help to support it because you're in that position where you can do it. A little bit, a little bit, no hero stuff over here. But I went to Congress and I interviewed, I went to Senate and Congress I interviewed senator McCain to try to get a national commission. Where all the other majors have. To get some accountability with these promoters. To be able to just make things a little better for the fighters and for the fans where you wouldn't just have one or two power brokers in a position where now it's probably three or four. But in a position where not really caring about the sport, they only came about their little piece of territory. Not to support all. Now you listen, you're in an advantageous position. You know, I've called you a dictator before. Not a bad dictator. You know, not a guy that chops heads off or anything like that. But sometimes we need a dictator. Not literally probably not. But I get it. I get it. But at the end of the day, you know, you could call parents dictators. If they're a good parent, at a certain point, they're going to be a dictator. I mean, there's got to be somebody who's in charge. And what you do is you do it obviously for yourself, but you do it for the benefit of the sport. And everyone benefits. You want the brand to that sport to be the best again. And it has become the best because you're formula because your philosophy. Because you're in charge, because you say, hey, listen. These are the fights we'll put on. We're not putting fights on that really quite frankly. Shouldn't even be sanctioned because you get those fights too often in boxing. And because of that the brand has grown.

"It's time this war like all wars must end. That's what history advises that is why i intending gauge congress about the existing authorization to use military force where you basically announces that he would like to get rid of those sixty words and in this war. Yeah but common sense tells you that these are different kind of enemy state government. They make war in a different way. Senator mccain has a great line he goes look. We're in an age of warfare where the war isn't gonna end with the signing of a peace treaty on the deck of story. That's not how it happens these days. There's no clear start and ending and yet the president. He wants to end the war witness and every war has come to an end. He sees himself as a person who came in to a country fighting two wars and he brought them all to an end. And i think he wants to have done that. But how how do you. How do you do that. How do you end a war when the vast amount of people that you're calling the enemy haven't stopped fighting so what he does in the may speech and it's extremely clever and by the way it's really well lawyered is. He announces a set of rules. Going forward for drone strike. America does not take strikes to punish individuals. We act against terrorists who pose a continuing an imminent threat to the american people that he's only any us drone strikes when there's an imminent threat. It's well understood by people who understand this kind of stuff that in the constitution and also an international law. The president is allowed to act unilaterally in self defense when there is an imminent threat. Meaning it's urgent and you can't feasibly capture that person. Ben fears that what president obama was doing there by stressing that word an imminent threat to the american people is that he was laying a new foundation. You saying when the a umf ends. And i wanted to end. I do have another way of justifying all these things. maybe they wouldn't change the drone strikes and the rates would would continue as long as you have a capacity enough understanding of what the word imminent means. You might be able to continue a whole lot of this stuff. And then you don't have to go to congress at all and you can say you've ended the war and the human rights groups will cheer for you and we're gonna mysteriously find that there are a whole lot of imminent threats for freedom. Thank you very much everybody. God bless god bless united states.

"Now in all fairness and i want to mention this to you in in in conjunction with senator mccain's pandering to the drive by media and criticizing this administration for its words about the war in iraq. Abc last night had a very rare positive report on abc's world news. Tonight charles gibson reported encouraging news from baghdad. The decision was made to redeploy thousands of us troops from the baghdad area from other areas of rock to secure the city and reduce the number of daily attacks. Will the numbers are preliminary but it seems to be working after two weeks. Iraqi authorities say to the number of vinyl taxes. Gone down by thirty percent. Abc reporter said by saturating some of the most dangerous neighborhoods. They have reduced violence across baghdad. By almost a third. Us figures calculated differently. Show at twenty two percent drop either way. The americans are fired up. May quote lieutenant patrick patterson of the one hundred fourteenth cavalry. Who says yes. It's been great. We got a lot of smiles. We got a lot of waves still despite the positive tone. Abc's mccarthy concluded hope has often gone sour in iraq if they can't make their own piece america's success in baghdad could quickly be reversed. Well that's the new not new. That's the formulaic balance that the media has to put an aggregate. Okay great news but just so we're fair it could all go to hell in a handbasket in the next five minutes so on the day senator mccain goes out and and is critical in order to get this this loving slavish attention from the drive by media the news out of iraq pretty good. It's almost the same kind of thing that happens. Democrats opening a nor right into their noses and so forth And this is. I say was reported on. Abc's world news. Tonight last night. Ami louisville open line friday on wednesday hilo irish negatives from another rush baby. Thank you and i just had a comment Quick comment mccain..

"Seems pretty clear that biden's administration is actually to the left of obama in terms of these spending issues. You less concerned about cutting spending plus concern about the scale of spending. And i think that's a little bit of a surprise to people that he actually is that much more willing to spend and one of the areas. Of course that. I personally believe needs very dramatic. Overhaul is the department of the fence. I used to tell people. And they'd ask me pose a hawk or a dove. I tell him. I hope i was a now. I can eat birds. That are wise not just pick between two minniti and aggressiveness but the pentagon i think is such a disaster. Do you think about it. They built the building in nineteen forty three for twenty three thousand people working with manual typewriters in carbon paper where now in a world of electronics and i think you could turn the pentagon into a triangle and take forty percent of it and turn it into a museum of national security and you would be dramatically better off because so many of the bureaucracies now are just so deeply wasteful. There are apparently like twenty four agencies. That are just in one. Particular subgroup of two point nine trillion dollars in assets in another subgroup defense information systems agency but the pentagon once again has failed to pass a clean audit. Actually i think up until about ten years ago it had never been successfully audited such a mess and leads to real defense challenges. F thirty five joint strike fighter is the project was over eight years delayed a hundred and sixty five billion dollars over the original budget by two thousand twenty lockheed martin delivered fewer aircraft than originally planned fewer deliveries planned are also expected in two thousand twenty one decision just a mess and that particular program as an estimated lifetime cost of one trillion two hundred billion dollars for operation and maintenance from the standpoint of the whole effort to look at waste. Where do you come down. And looking at the pentagon oh again citizens against government. Screw the grace commission and i think about twenty five percent of the four hundred twenty four billion dollars in savings came out of the pentagon. That's where the money is. And that's where the inefficiency is in many ways and so the f thirty five. We have spoken about for a long time. In fact we made representative mike. Turn of ohio republican june twenty twenty one pork of the month because he is also the head of the joint strike fighter caucus. He thinks that the f thirty five quote is modern capable and also leaves at increasing production will further reduce overall program costs so he has no problem supporting additional j. f. earmarks in the budget we also have joint strike fighter in our prime cuts. We have it in our congressional pig book. it's really unfortunately. A huge problem on senator mccain was chairman of the services committee. He said it's both the scandal in tragedy with respect to cost schedule and performance in the under secretary of defense acquisition in twenty fourteen. That was frank. Kendall referred to the whole system was acquisition malpractice. There have been a lot of comments about the joint strike fighter but it goes on because the interests that are involved with building it and selling it have a lot more say than the taxpayers. But there's a lot of waste and inefficiency at the department of defense. I recall meeting with slate secretary rumsfeld a couple of times when he was sector he really wanted to get something done in terms of reducing spending taxpayer groups in town and it was four or five meetings. It's just such a large operation is very difficult to make it more efficient. But every penny that's wasted is pending. That's being spent to defend the united states of america so it's to us the most wasteful to have money go down the drain at the pentagon. You know general. Grant's deputy wrote a memoir. In in the memoir he points out that after lee surrendered it epa matic's grant got on the train to go back to washington and spent the entire ride signing orders to muster troops out of the army on the grounds that the taxpayer should not pay for the troops one day longer than they were needed. Now you take that level of frugality and compare it with the current pentagon whereas i understand it and you may be able to explain this to me as a non accountant. I don't get it in two thousand nineteen. The department of defense made thirty five trillion dollars in accounting adjustments and that was up from thirty trillion and eighteen and twenty nine troy and in seventeen mean. How can you have a system that has to make almost a hundred trillion dollars in accounting adjustments in three years. How can that happen. Well i know my board of directors would get rid of me. If i did that. I liked to have financial statements that don't have adjustment but unfortunately the consequences are not like they would be in the private sector and as you know the solution at least as members of congress. Just go spend more money to solve the problem. That's how things operate here in washington. You see something wrong. You don't fix it spend money and then if it's fixed you spend more money and that's really what happens especially a pentagon because if you can spend money under the guise of national security. It's many ways a lot easier. A lot more bipartisan to get that money spent eighteen ninety. The navy committee in both the house and senate both had chairs from the state of maine and so they rigged the system so that u s navy ships would end up in a port in maine being overhauled and sos man save our ship. Which meant don't finish it and so you'd have ships that sat there for ten years getting overhauled and so the result was the. Us navy had a relatively decent budget compared to many of other navies but it was all absorbed by ancient wooden sailing ships that were being repaired in the state of maine and it took the navy league being founded and people like theodore roosevelt and henry cabot lodge hitting engaged to change the rules and create the modern steel navy but it was just always a reminder to me that you sometimes need to look and see you know who's not just the executive branch but who are the people in congress who are profiting from mandating waist. Now you guys did something very interesting back in nineteen ninety-one and something which i think is a real asset to the taxpayer. You created a book which you've issued every single year since then called the congressional pig book which i think is a great title. Tell us about the congressional pig book so the congressional take book came about because the reagan office evanger budget decided not to spend money on certain programs in also identify programs that were not authorized and so they threatened not to spend the money and then of course congress threatened to cut when budgets so that was last year they issued that lists a. We took that theory we worked with the congressional pork. Busters coalition a bipartisan group. To come up with a seven point criteria to determine what would be considered pork barrel spending or earmarks and we've used the same criteria ever since so it covers the process and.

By how much pushback you've gone and how big a leap was it for you to put yourself out there like that. That must've been rough. Well for me it was. I knew the other candidate was not right. I knew we couldn't deal with four more years the other candidate and so for me. It was an easy decision. Because i knew what was right and i was in my mind in my heart. I felt like i was doing what was right for the country and i still believe that today as far as taking heat of course i knew i was gonna take heat. That was that there was no doubt that was going to happen. So and i i pushed back on them but i i'm just proud to be to have been some assistance to a man that i believe is is a good president and is leading this country in the right direction and practices civility and an honor and decency as he governs. And that's to me is most important. Well mom i'm so proud of you. Because at present biden has announced that he will nominate you as the us ambassador to the united nations agencies for food and agriculture mom How does it feel for you. I know how passionate you are about this space..

There's a whole world of Cancers of the brain from noncancerous tumors that they can have for decades. And we'll it only comes to you know attention because it slowly grown in his knuckling into the brain to things like senator mccain and President biden sons brain tumor. That's the actual flesh just goes bonkers and awry and sprouts cancer. That's a whole range of not deadly to deadly within a year so and so that that world of cancer brain surgery is what i'm in But there's a whole range of things that happen happened in that sphere right and just like any other cancer you know. There's usually some sort of underlying condition. I'm could be genetic but oftentimes is a lifestyle or A belief or a fear or trauma that somehow slowly manifest itself as a cancer is that i would disagree with that. I i think stress might cause something but i don't know about belief causing. I don't think that link is there that that i've seen i. I know stress can cause a lot of problems. Totally get the on. The hollywood ever study that. He's a great way to describe it. I always say the. How would how would show that. But we know stress is related to lots of physiologic diseases. Inflammation and inflammation can lead to cancer but inflammation is good also. Everything has a is a dual edged thing right. But what about toxins yeah. Environmental toxins or exposure to something bad. Celeste look at cher noble. Like i go to ukraine. And i've been on the edge of chenobyl there with the gowns on and stuff like that so now we have some from that you know like the wolves of taken over the certain towns and stuff like that. It's something to see like beyond you know puck elliptic in the real sense. But they're they're finding a lot of the weren't that many differences in certain cancers but skin an thyroid cancers they found we're going up And that's partly because skin thyroid's turning over a lot you know the shedding and making new stuff. So one that radiation hit it. The dna was damaged and it created cancer cells.

You know you're barking up a tree here that that's got no branches on it but that's the story was written before it was published is Is the point. So i i can't figure out why other people are not as i'm not trying to give myself credit. This has been learned by experience. There's no great inside of mine. I look i got. I got sandbagged. I can't tell you how many times the first five years of this show thinking you could be nice fair and just be honest enabled. They will report what you say. It's it's not that way with us. This doesn't happen. So why other people don't figure this this is why get so fed up when i see some of my conservative brethren in dc media. Trying to curry favor with the drive by media. That's why i get so bent out of shape when i see potential republican candidates and elected officials trying to make the media their best friends. Because it's it's it's all temporary even if it works for once he gets either come back in a media is going to end up stabbing you ask senator mccain of you know. They're dumping on him after him being their favorite republican for four years and is why it irritates me when elected republicans go on sunday shows and trash their own party in their own president. Just curry favor with these people. But in this case you have the administration talking to them and they have to talk to them but to think that there was a chance that the administration's especially on this subject the war in iraq There's just a different way to approach him. You know approach them you know. They walk in the officer. You meet them for lunch or whatever. And and just i know why you're here mr reporter you here to sandbag the administration. Here here to do is wrong. You're here to lie about us blah blah and put him on the defensive and last thing they want us to peg him last thing they want is for you to be able to know what and then say what they're gonna do and then have them do it it it it. It has worked for me in the past. But i don't even find it interesting enough to have time to do it anymore. But why this administration thinks that they can sit down and talk to these people and they're going to fair shake beyond me..

You know if we can help people. It's the greatest thing in life, you know? God, That's what gets you into heaven. Elizabeth, You're making me cry. You're making me cry to Elizabeth. I love you. Let's go to Judy in Brooklyn. Think I had to put a morning Judy Judy, How are you? Hi. Good morning. So nice to hear from both of you. And I'm so grateful that you're somewhere If you show God, I hope I'll be able to speak normally. You know, I hope I can do that Last one was pretty tough. No, I tell you why. Because sometimes you have so much to say no so high, So pick out one or two. I'm I'm gonna try my bed. You can call back when I say. Okay. How could President Biden talk about uniting? Okay when he allows this what I call what? I've read the great purge, Which is the cancel culture, which is between Big Tech Inc. Hang on. Rudy. Hang on there. You left. And something I read the Lincoln, the Lincoln Project, the Lincoln Prize, the consistent Democratic lawmakers and Republican allies. They are cruel. They're vicious. They're making it into a crime for supporting President Trump. Blacklisting and causing people to be fired or hired and ruin lives. Those who attended the January 6th Valley they looking into Web sites and all hotels. They're they're like unbelievable. Always qualified. Lawyers are afraid to represent President Trump. Some of them had to resign someone that they say they're they're, you know, save their their firms by saying they're not going to. They're reneging on representing President Trump. So here's the thing When you look at the impeachment that just happened before, which is a joke. I mean, it's flu. True with no debate, no due process, no evidence, nothing and now A Senate hearing Rudy they're not even allowed to bring up the truth about the election for that's why these lawyers can't represent because President Trump wants the truth to come out and they don't allow it. You yourself have 1000 witnesses grave people that came forward plus plus daughter experts. Whatever. And I don't understand. It's so frustrating with they're not 11 months. I have a different theory. On how to defend the case. But You know, I would love to do that. I know, but I have attorney. I have attorney client privilege and it, uh, it prohibits me from going into theories and Um But Rudy, what about this Lincoln Project group? I mean, who day this? They're disgruntled Republicans. Who believe that They would basically be in the case. It I guess now follow is a Senator McCain People are followers of Romney. People who think that he was a terrible President and should represent they're hurting Americans. Rudy the idea is the same 1000. That's ridiculous is Uh, ultimately I look, I've had devoted times where it's a choice between two people in one is not great. I thought the president was great, but you know, it's not great, but the other ones have just asked her. So the difference is, I mean, these are Republicans so they must believe in low taxes. So they voted for high taxes. They voted the heavy regulation. They voted for a week foreign policy meaning subject hating ourselves to Russia and China, which is.
"senator mccain" Discussed on KTAR 92.3FM
"In the police force. Capitol police are they prepared for a crowd that size? How can a group of people Basically walk into the United States Capitol get into the speaker's office get into the House floor. So my expert whenever something like this comes up is a man named Steve Hooper spent over 30 years with the FBI started his career. I believe in the Secret Service is well, and he's now a professor at Embry Riddle's College of Security and intelligence here in the state of Arizona. Steve Let's start with what you saw happening yesterday. From a security standpoint, Where were the mistake's made or were there mistakes made? Well, that's interesting. My God, you know, there'll be an investigation of already seen reports that they're investigating as to how this could happen. But, you know, I understand. And I got a guy called yesterday, people asking Well, you know, it was a secret service and so forth, And I said, Well, the Secret service doesn't protect the capital or Congress, people or senators. They they're strictly, you know, the president and vice president and I worked at the White House in Washington and the uniformed Division Secret Service is the physical security of the building and does travel with the president, vice president to provide physical security and controlled access. Similarly, Capitol police does the same thing. They have a physical security element at the Capitol building. They're in charge of controlled access. Who gives in who gets out, Uh, using a path system and so forth, and then internally they provide Personal security to like, and I know you're friends with Senator McCain. Anytime he came out to Arizona, he there was a Capitol police officer with him. They provide security, personal security. Much like the secret Service does so they have several elements. They have bomb techs. They have canine. They have all the elements of police department would have. So when you talk about mistakes that were made the only life speculation is that the plan And when we always had a saying fail to plan plan to fail, if if if they didn't have a plan that was of commensurate with the number of people they, uh, anticipated, maybe, uh, being approaching the building, so might have been a planning process. The the Police sources there. Certainly there. It may have been a plan issue, and that's probably what they're gonna be looking at. For the people that committed the acts inside the Capitol building. What are they are these felonies? One of the charges, and I mean it's more than just trespassing these air gonna be And what are they looking at? As far as charges go, and is the FBI now come in, Or is it the Capitol police that investigates and tries to find these people and bring them to justice threats or assaults on Members of Congress is a federal violation and the FBI investigates that I worked those cases when I was in Washington, D C. And, of course, they would be working with Capitol police as the on scene law enforcement agency at the capital so dependent on what the incidents were. They assault on any of the members of Congress. Did they, um, commit any violent acts towards remembers those would be specific cases on assaults on members of Congress. Um, it's fine as getting into the building. Uh, there's certainly D C violations on federal violations because it's all federal property. And so that would be have to be, um Have to be filtered as to what kind of prosecution they would be doing against people who nearly got into the place illegally. Vice those who maybe had committed assault of the F B, I certainly would be the lead agency on On assault on a member of Congress. Steve Hooper's joining us he spent 30 years with the FBI also was with the Secret Service. He's now a professor at Emory Riddles College of Security intelligence here in Arizona. From that standpoint of being a professor, the next question is about national security, our enemies watching how easy it was to walk into the Capitol building. As your capacities of Professor. I'm sure you're talking to students about what is this now? From the national security standpoint? What do our enemies learn from something like this? Is that something you're looking at? Well, it zit our enemies, whether it's for counterintelligence or intelligence collection purposes, or they wanted to commit some sort of violent acts are always looking and assessing, looked for looking for vulnerabilities and assessing how they could use. Those only exploit those vulnerabilities. Um, to their benefit. I think they fact that they were able to access I'll be it violently. Uh, the capital. Um, you know, they're always looking for ways to, uh, get into locations where they can quickly gather information. And it says security elements and, Yeah, I guarantee there watching and saying Hey, and look at how this works. And I wonder how this happened. Let's follow this, and they're probably paying attention to assess their the security posture and loves of federal buildings. Um, my last question is more of a personal one. Because I know you spent so much time in D. C. I know you spent time working in federal law enforcement. What were your feelings when you are watching? You know what would be of your fellow officers watching them having to try to fight this crowd? What were you thinking when you are watching this going on? Yeah, it's interesting. You should that because that's exactly what I was doing. And and one of the phone calls I got last night was You know, because I told him it wasn't Secret Service who would be Capitol police And they said, Well, okay, let's say it was the White House. What would you have done? And you know, it's one of those things that you always say in law enforcement and unless you're there, you don't want to speculate..

Filmmaker Barry Levinson on Ukraine scandal
"We have an email from Oscar winning director and screenwriter. Barry Levinson. Who writes if this hearing was a fictional oh piece of material it would be presented in a totally different manner? One of the democratic players would ask this question. How is it possible? That president trump was looking into corruption in in Ukraine. Suddenly he is crimefighter has the president has has the president ever tried to end corruption anywhere at any time in his his life over the years he's been found guilty of stealing from his own charity. Also the president has been found guilty of running fake university and stealing money from people who believed in him. The president has paid off women because of his sexual aggressive behavior. Now out of the blue. He wants to clean up corruption in Ukraine not Russia where Putin has killed off opposition players poisoning them in far off countries. President trump has no real problem with the Saudi prince. NBS having his butcher's chop up a Washington Post Post reporter not a real problem or turkeys aggression against Kurds not a big problem but the Ukraine is corrupt. That needs to change. Are we supposed to believe this. Donald Trump wants to clean up corruption. Starting with Biden's son. In Ukraine the Democrats have not yet emphasized this absurdity at the center of the Republican defensive. Donald Trump might that moment. Come in the house. Judiciary Committee impeachment hearings or art in the impeachment trial in the United States. Senate we are joined now by one of the jurors in the possible impeachment trial of Donald J trump if he is impeached by the House of Representatives. Senator Amy Klobuchar is a Democrat from Minnesota and member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. She is also a candidate for president of the United States. Senator and it's because you're candidate for President United States Florida. I believe you have all you already have the strength but have built up the strength to deal with the kind of frustration. Australian that Barry Levinson is feeling and people all over the country my feeling about this movie person. He knows that truth has become stranger than fiction. I think makes that point. The second thing yesterday member is you can't that long of a question would take your time. The third thing is I think that Adam Schiff I was trying to focus and did a very good job of this on what was in front of him and I think these arguments will be made later but remember this phase of this was gathering offering me evidence from career diplomats career military. I will never forget. Seeing Fiona Hill today I saw snippets of it of course and just her STOIC STOIC nature and the thought of her my favorite story that I read today about her was when she was a little girl in school and some boy behind her set her pigtails on fire and she doused it out with their own hands there. She was and she was focused on what was before her. And that was what Russia did the Ukraine didn't do and I learned from going to Ukraine twice now and once with Senator McCain and Graham I mean Russia tried to influence as as we know in a big way Ukrainian elections they put up a puppet and not only that they invaded their country an annex Crimea so this this thought that it was Ukraine that was the bad actor is absurd and I was really glad that you pointed this out. It's not to say they don't have problems in their country with corruption option but I loved how she explained today that for the president corruption in this case was code word for going after getting dirt on by I they had a different introduction for this segment tonight until I got this email just minutes before the show and what what I thought it captured was the kind of viewer frustration. That there is out. They're in watching this and just to clarify we know that in a courtroom. That wouldn't be admissible if if Donald Trump is on trial for ex. You couldn't bring up all these other things you know that. Art The About his life but this is a different arena. Would we hear something like that said for example in the Judiciary Committee when they're considering impeachment or could that be said that kind of thing be said in the Senate impeachment trial. This is example of evidence because the fact that In this case he was allegedly that corruption crimefighter and when you have other countries and other things that happened including the murder of journalists Jamal Kashogi he showed no care Really absurd relevant. I would think it would be but I think again a lot of this is going to depend pen and what our Republican colleagues do and this is their moment to decide. Are they going to put their country first or not. What would your reaction to Mitt Romney Susan Collins and others having lunch with the president today it disappoints me It's legal or anything like that. I could see if they were going over there on a major issue. That of course would be fine but instead this is what's happening and I just hope that they listened to the evidence and that they remember what this is really about. It's putting private interest partisan interests in front of our
