"News I might forget him because it was very handsome. Doctor Irwin said that I'm doing this. MSNBC medical experts. Doctor Irwin brother. He became doctor doom. That's where we read letter is the founding director of the national center for disaster preparedness and senior research scholar. Doctor doom can I just say as I said, doctor doom, the Supreme Court just made it significantly harder for the federal government to respond to climate change. Okay, so as the head of the center for disaster preparedness, much of which is brought on by climate change. Good morning. Isn't everything going great? How do you do those Stefan? Yeah, couldn't be better, actually. And I, let's just blow my brains out, but otherwise I'm feeling just great. Aren't you? You and I will say now some F bombs and some S bombs in our pre show conversation. We've been out of time. I would have had more, but okay. Everything is going up. You are correct. Wow. Wow, wow. Well, you know, you were also talking about COVID, and I was saying to you, doctor, a lot of the doctors we follow on Twitter saying the same thing that this sub variant is something else. And it's starting to evade our vaccines ability. And as you say, you're still 5 times more likely to be hospitalized or die. But Travis and I, anaconda, you know, a bunch of people that are vaccinated and double boosted. This is what you've said. Every week on this show for not long now, that was always going to be a race between the vaccine and the variants. And we still do not have enough people vaccinated that we're not getting all these variants in some areas. So more than a 100,000 new cases every day, 377 is the average number of fatalities every single day. It's kind of if you think about it, you know, it's like, we have accepted this is all right to have 307 7 people die from a disease every single day. And you know, it's pretty stunning what we've learned to accept when it should be a continuing cause of shock and awe that we're getting attacked like this by a virus. And we still have so many more than a third of Americans that are not fully vaccinated. And I'm talking about just two shots. Yeah. Go figure, as they say, you know. And you and I just helped the good friend of mine, who's smart and happened to be staying with me. One boosted yet. You're not vaccinated if you're not boosted, you should have two by now if you're above 50. Two boosters. I mean, and I'm sure it was a pediatrician. We talked about this last week. This has just got to be so depressing for you. The number of people that are, you know, this should be such miraculous news that you're under 5 year old. How many people have had to change their whole life over the last couple of years so that they're under 5 year old doesn't get COVID. And all of a sudden we've got miracle. We've gotten hysterical about vaccinating children. And we give them many, many vaccines in childhood to protect them from all kinds of diseases. Here's one that kills almost 400 people a day. And, well, I'm not sure Trump said we shouldn't, whatever they're thinking. Can I just certainly stressing? Idiots like Ted Cruz, sorry. They've become the anti science party. They've just become the. Okay. Elmo, you saw Elmo is now vaccinated against COVID and not everyone's happy. Ted Cruz took to Twitter to express his outrage at a public service announcement featuring Elmo and his dad Louis, which was designed to encourage parents and caregivers to get informed about COVID shots for younger kids. Cruz tweeted, you have Elmo aggressively advocating for vaccinating children under 5, but you cite zero scientific evidence for this. First of all, it's a puppet. It's not even a person. It's just saying you should get informed about getting the cold, but this is the problem. This is a sitting United States senator, right? It's the problem. And presumably not a low IQ kind of guys. He's very smart guy went to grade schools, great schools. And here he is promoting family show still, right? Yes. Yes. Okay. Promoting nonsense. And misinformation, like an idiot. You know, it's like something is a screw loose with this guy, and I don't know what's going to happen with him, but I do know that parents need to get their children vaccinated. Yeah. I agree, I'm getting vaccinated. And so should yours. And your kids. Thank you. Can I just say, boy, it seems to extend to everything. I just saved the story for you because obviously in the wake of roving overturned, it's just a devastating time for a lot of us, but so they call these things crisis pregnancy centers. They're, you know, basically these religiously controlled, they're so called because they target women who are pregnant and crisis. They don't usually give pregnancy tests. They don't present provide medical care, diapers, operas, ultrasounds, and prenatal care for women that decide to go forward with the pregnancy, still have strings attached to get resources they're forced to take religious parenting classes. When NBC News went to a crisis pregnancy center across from a Planned Parenthood. See, they do that in purpose on purpose. They put them. Yeah, they told producers outright that what they told producers shocked two female lawmakers want a Republican and want a Democrat, such offices lie that abortions cause infertility, anti abortion groups have a series of models of fetuses, except they're not scientifically accurate. In fact, they're just miniaturized dolls. Despite what conservative lawmakers have said and passed laws about there is no heartbeat at that stage because there is no heart, but just that is what they exist for is to give out medical misinformation to pregnant women. You know, I think there was misinformation before the Internet had been forced social media. But not like this. This is absolutely powerful, influential, misinformation that spring promulgated by people like Ted Cruz and others. And it gets magnified on social media and some people get all of their new Stephanie from social media. So if that's what you're exposed to all day long and then you sit down and relax and watch the evening news and its Fox, you're just fed 24 hours a day with garbage as you'd say in Paris. Yes. It's absolutely frightening. I don't know what we're going to do about this either, by the way. I was thinking of you because it must drive you crazy between COVID misinformation and pregnancy or whatever you want to call that misinformation. It's just a wild amount of medical misinformation of things around every day. Yeah. Right. And I don't know whether you ever forced yourself to watch Fox, but it's a stunning experience where there's unabashed lying. It's just plain lying on TV. One thing was kind of interesting is we've started to see a turn the fox sites there when it comes to the insurrection. I think that Cassidy's deposition are testimony to turn the tide, at least in that realm. Maybe the spill over to the other things. And there'll be some kind of big wake-up call for Fox and the like. And we'll see what happens. But we got a lot of battles to wait a minute. Wait a minute. You've been kidnapped by the anti doom. What have you done with doctor doom? What's going on? That was, that was too much optimism once there. We'll take it. Yeah. Well, you know, is it our Karen from Chicago tweeted, it's not enough, but it's something and if people like David hogg and Fred Gutenberg, people who were touched personally by gun violence are happy about it than I am too, is Fred said we need to vote more Democrats into the Senate so we can do more. Of course on guns, which is something you're also confronted with on a daily basis as a pediatrician. You said, and you said

Kimberley Johnson on Trump Hating Republicans
"Kimberly, you raise a really interesting point. I'll tell you why, because we just saw, you know, Liz Cheney was celebrating the roe V wade decision. Like, Liz Cheney hates Donald Trump. You're absolutely right. But she's not on our side. In fact, one of the reasons we were talking about, why is there this like, they're not going after Jenny Thomas. When I was hearing, is because Liz Cheney likes the Supreme Court the way it is. She doesn't want Ginny and clarence. She doesn't want any talk of clarence Thomas. Yes. Resigning or getting or you name it, right? And so and I thought this on cue, right this morning, Travis, a lawyer for Jenny Thomas, told the House select committee, he saw no reason for her to testify. Well, yeah, because they see how these hearings are going. Yeah. Exactly. So they came after it came after the committee has made a fresh request for her appearance, and we have the text messages to what Meadows and to eastman. She was right in the middle of this thing. And that her husband already was the one sole vote voting to keep her communications private. Kimberly, so beyond a conflict of interest, I don't even know what you call it. Do you? Yeah. No, I mean, I agree with you a 100%. This is clearly very upsetting coming because, you know, we love to Democrats are so fond of loving the Republicans that are going to go against Trump. But we always have to remember that I do think that at some point they want to break from him because they don't like him. You can see their true reactions to Trump in 2016. Lindsey Graham tweeted it, Ted Cruz was talking about how horrible he was, Marco Rubio, all of them. They don't like him. But now that he gave them everything that they wanted. And now this trial is going to give them a clean

Fresh update on "ted cruz" discussed on Mark Levin
"With endless preemptions or you chop off an hour here or there. Oh, but we have to, you know. Local coverage. But don't be fooled by this. I'm a little too hot, if you will. For some of the corporatists, and their platforms. Just a little too hot for them. Because their woke, the corporatists are woke, either out of their own ideology or at a pressure, this show which seeks to bring you the truth, every evening. Rationally, yet passionately Is. a threat to them. I predict here and I don't make predictions that day will come. But don't worry, I don't roll over and play dead. Carry picket and Joseph Clark at the Washington times. Representative Louie gohmert called January 6th select committee to release the full deposition. A former White House say Cassidy, hutchison. The which she claimed that mister gohmert and other Republican lawmakers sought presidential pardons in late 2020, he flatly denied seeking a pardon for himself, mister gohmert said he made several pardon requests for U.S. service members whom he says were wrongfully convicted of crimes while deployed in war zones, but he never made a request for himself. Why don't they release? The full transcripts. As a matter of fact, Louis on to something. As I keep saying, she was forced to testify four times the 5th time being publicly Why? Because there are pressuring her. Why can't we see all these transcripts, raw transcripts and see them now? Why are not at least conservative media calling for them? Mark Meadows really Giuliani denied asking for pardons for themselves. Both men say that's absolutely false. And yet this was another big reveal at the emergency committee hearing. Big reveal. But don't worry, ladies and gentlemen. I'm looking. Looking, looking here for something. It was put together in the opinion page of the Washington examiner. See if I can find this, mister produced what the hell did I do with this? So many documents so little time. Well, I guess I'll have to pull it up because I can't find it. Well, here it is. It's right here. Washington examiner obviously has some new executives. And I'm not fond of these unsigned editorials. These corporate editorials. But here's the editorial that was put out a 1201 a.m.. Trump proven unfit for power again. Former White House say Cassidy hutchison's Tuesday testimony. But a ring the death now for former president Donald Trump's political career. Trump is unfit to be anywhere near power ever again. This is what we get out of conservative newspaper. Hutchison's resume alone should establish her credibility so again, without any challenge she's credible. Why wouldn't she be? The 25 year old had already worked at the highest levels of conservative Republican politics. Including in the offices of senator Ted Cruz and House minority whip Steve scalise. Before becoming a top aide for former Trump chief of staff, Mark Meadows. So far none of this has anything to do with anything. In short, hutchison was a conservative Trumpist, true believer. And a tremendously credible one at that. They never heard of her before. Nobody had. And they'd only been mentioned how many times this committee worked her over. But let's continue. She did not overstate things. She did not overstate things. Really? Now by 12 a.m., this morning, surely they had to know of the credibility issues. And they still press the button and publish this editorial. Did not seem to be seeking attention and was very precise about how and why she knew what she related in about which testimony was firsthand, which was secondhand, but able to be corroborated. Corroborated, what a Hutchinson relayed was disturbing. She gave believable accounts of White House awareness that the plan January 6th rally could turn violent, she repeated testimony that Trump not only knew that then vice president Mike Pence's life had been credibly threatened that day, but also that he was somewhere between uncaring and actually approving of pence's danger. There's one person's testimony. She also told in detail that Trump repeatedly insisted that he himself should join his supporters at the capitol. Even after being informed the crowd contained an armed elements. That it was breaching the perimeter against an under manned U.S. capitol police force. Also distressing to hear where hutchison's counts of Trump's repeated fits of rage, including dining table contents, overturned, and catch of dishes thrown violently across the room. The worst by far, though, was that people immediately returning from being with Trump in the presidential vehicle told of the president trying to grab the wheel of the car to force it to be driven to the capitol and then violently reaching for the neck of Secret Service agent Bobby engel who headed the president's protective detail. Why are any of these people still with this newspaper? This was the worst by far they say. Did they call the Secret Service? To corroborate with
FBI Can't Tell Sen. Cruz if FBI Knew About Jan. 6 Informants or Not
"I want you to hear senator Ted Cruz getting right to the crux of this with a senior FBI official named Jill Sanborn on Capitol Hill this week. I want to turn to the FBI. How many FBI agents or confidential informants actively participated in the events of January 6th? Sir, I'm sure you can appreciate that I can't go into the specifics of sources and methods. Did any FBI agents or confidential informants actively participate in the events of January 6th? Yes. Sir, I can't, I can't answer that. Did any FBI agents are confidential informants commit crimes of violence on January 6th? I can't answer that, sir. Did any FBI agents or FBI informants actively encourage and incite crimes of violence on January 6th? I can't answer that. Miss sad burn. Who is raps? I'm aware of the individual, sir. I don't have the specific background to him. How does that not blow your mind? I'm serious. If you're sitting there saying, oh, Trump incited violence.
Why Republicans Really Want to Arm Teachers
"Thing. I think we're sometimes looking at this through the wrong lens, as far as arming teachers, bringing in more security guards, bringing more cops to schools, basically turning schools into military military installments. The reason they're pushing for this should be abundantly clear, but I think the idea that it's a school is kind of sidelining us. They want to sell as many firearms as they possibly can. And so if we're talking about arming whatever it is a 100,000 teachers, we're talking about bringing in security guards, talking about hiring more cops to patrol school campuses. That's a lot of firearms. They want to, yeah. The whole mission here and it's been this way, no matter what Strata of the conversation we're talking about, the whole mission is to sell as many guns as possible. That's the chief mission of the NRA, the gun lobby at large, the Republican Party, people like Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, gone down the line. They want to sell as many firearms as possible because more profits for the firearm industry, the for profit firearm industry. By the way, Second Amendment never says anything about making a profit on firearms. Maybe there's an angle there. But regardless, the whole idea is to make that profit as big as possible so that there's more money flowing around into Republican war chests. It certainly into the NRA and all the executives at the NRA. This is all intentional from a purely fiscal wealth building point of
Morgan Zegers Is a Lifestyle/Culture Person With a Political Spin
"You mentioned before we went live very fascinating things. So we're working here at America first to go down in the demographic talk radio has a certain demographic. We want to reach a younger generation. You're seeing a reverse phenomena you're getting more and more listeners to your podcast from who, what kind of demographic? Well, so my demographic has always been political. I mean, I run a nonprofit called young Americans against socialism, so when I first entered the movement, I don't know if you knew this. The Tea Party patriots invited me to speak in front of Capitol Hill, my first week. I don't know if they didn't realize, oh, she's never spoken before, but it was like, it was me, Mark Levin, Ted Cruz, all just standing in the green room, and I'm just going, it was very funny. And so that put me in the political space, but at the end of the day, I'm very much about lifestyle, culture, religion, and most importantly, homeschooling at homesteading. I'm very into that. I'm more of a country. You've got to stop putting these videos on Instagram of you at your latest homestead cabin because everybody thinks you've bought 12 of them already. These are just your fantasies, right? Well, I tore the country looking for my home center. And then you film it as if you own it. Yeah, I'm trying to inspire. Do you know my following? Is all young women? I'm trying to inspire them to want more than what the culture puts on to us these days in society. But my audience has always been political. I'm more of a lifestyle culture person. And so now that we have these educational resources with the survivors and with American values, trying to teach kids, it's really opened me up to very concerned mothers and educators and community focused people that weren't really interested in politics until the government lately over the last few years has started to encroach on us and our children.
Sen. Ted Cruz: Joe Biden's Solution Is to Disarm Law-Abiding Citizens
"Senator Ted Cruz from the great state of Texas with the perfect proper response to the verbal diarrhea that came out of the president of the United States yesterday. Just about everybody agrees he's doing a terrible job, just about everybody agrees. This is a train wreck. And you know what's frustrating about it, Sean? Is he's not willing to change. He's not willing to change course. This speech tonight, once again, he chose to double down on hard left divisive politics. You know, when it comes to violent crime, listen, I was at, Yuval, the last week, the day after the shooting. I was there with the local officials and with law enforcement and with family members, what happened in Texas is horrific. And anyone with any heartbeat is horrified that 19 little boys and girls were murdered that two teachers were murdered. And what does Joe Biden and the Democrats do? They don't come back and say, let's unite behind law enforcement to stop criminals to keep our kids safe. No, they immediately demagogue and say the solution is to take away your weapons. The solution is to disarm law abiding citizens. He's so right. This could be, this should be a unifying event. Americans ought to be unified over this. We ought to be able to say, hey, it's us against them, meaning us against the bad guys. The monsters who would murder children.
Sen. Ted Cruz: This Presidency Is a Train Wreck
"It's called a train wreck. That's the way Ted Cruz put it. This presidency is a walking talking train wreck. No other way to describe it. Instead of trying to unify Americans after you've Aldi instead of trying to rally behind law enforcement, let's figure out ways to stop the bad guys and keep our kids safe. Never let a crisis go to waste. Let's take away your guns. That's the answer. Gosh. There's such a stark difference between Republicans and Democrats today. I've never seen it like this before. People talk about why we're so polarized. You know why we're so polarized? Because political parties are so different right now. In other words, if you're a registered Democrat, you're represented by a party. That believes that the immediate aftermath of a mass shooting of 19 children and two teachers should be to go around and disarm people. We have too many guns in America. It's the gun's problem. If you're a Republican, you do things like, well, armed teachers.
Dan Bongino: Sarah Palin Is the Real Deal
"One of the things I always respected about you is early on when I was one big nobody you probably am nobody's other people still but whatever When no one knew who I was You got behind me And I never forget when your people reached out and said you know the governor wants to help and it's not just me You didn't get behind people who were fashionable candidates You got behind people who are conservatives I remember a candidate you endorsed in the Maryland governor's race who had candidly no chance of winning but he was a real conservative and you believed in him He was a friend of mine And he was so inspired by that and I just want people to know that you're not some act This is you're the real deal I saw it I meant it and I want everyone to understand that That did you backed me up and many others not just me You know when used your power and your social media and your voice to help those people And I think even though it's one congressional seat I think it means a lot if you are sitting at it I appreciate that And if nothing else I am thankful for the discernment that I have that I believe God has put in my spirit a discernment for it Who's good And who's fake and who's phony and who's not capable and who were the good guys and you definitely find your top top of the list of thank you These others whom I had the privilege of endorsing early early on like Rand Paul He endorsed me yesterday and he reminded me Siri you were there when nobody else would Be there for me You helped me when nobody else would People knew my dad but they didn't know me Ted Cruz is one that says I wouldn't be in the United States center if it worked for Sarah Palin but by the way he hasn't come out and endorsed me yet However you know it's not You better get on that Jimbo Governor we're on a lot of stations where I'm one of the biggest ones in Texas WB AP We love you senator You gotta get on that
Sen. Ted Cruz: Schools Should Have a Single Point of Entry
"But here was what Ted Cruz said about a single point of entry in our schools, which makes all the sense in the world who could disagree with this. We also know that there are best practices at federal buildings and courthouses. Where for security reasons, they limit the means of entry to one entrance. Schools likewise should have a single point of entry. Fire exits should only open out. At that single point of entry, we should have multiple armed police officers. Or if need be military veterans trained to provide security and keep our children safe.
NRA speakers unshaken on gun rights after school massacre

Sen. Ted Cruz: Beto O'Rourke's Stunt Was Embarassing & Disgusting
"Here's what senator Cruz told Jesse watters last night on Fox News. Look, I was shocked. We were going through a briefing, listening to law enforcement about precisely what had happened about what the next steps were. And it was disgusting. He strode to the front of the room and tried to turn it into a political rally. And I guess his campaign is flailing. He's going to lose, but you know, just after you ended that clip, the mayor of uvalde. He turned to beto. He said you're a 6th son of a bitch. Yeah. Because to take something, you've got grieving families. You've got to community that it's broken to pieces and to try to politicize it and turn it into a rally, the way beto did, it was really, I've seen a lot of crass behavior. That was embarrassing and it was, it was
Beto O'Rourke Turns Uvalde Shooting Into a Campaign Ad
"Let the world hear what it sounds like to stand up to attack the like that a cheap opportunistic, sick political stunt. Using the deaths of these 19 angels and these two heroic teachers, 21 murders and you want to run for governor. You want to turn it into a beto o'rourke for governor campaign ad. I was watching it in the hotel room yesterday live. And as soon as I saw it, I said, that's beto o'rourke. That's not some clown reporter. That's a clown Democrat. Senator Ted Cruz was in the room. You could hear his voice. He was telling him, sit down. Sit down.
Beto O'Rourke Attempts to Disrupt Gov. Abbott's Press Conference
"And it's some lunatic email me Charlie it's not a national tragedy. Let me just shut up. It is, okay? You got 19 elementary kids. Murdered in a classroom, all right? So yes, it is. That doesn't happen every day. God forbid. So we're kind of on the fly here. And so. The whole thesis that we had here was that Democrats are going to overly politicize this and make it all about themselves and their political agenda. And as if right on cue, Robert Francis o'rourke couldn't allow governor Abbott to host a press conference on mental health and the facts related to it and barnstorms and bum rushes the stage like an unhinged activist and start screaming with his flailing arms of which there's not a detectable ounce of testosterone or muscle mass on the entire being of the wannabe Hispanic Irish man trust fund baby open border advocate gun grabbing activist from El Paso, Texas, who hell yes is going to take away all your guns soon to be three times failed candidate in Texas where he can't win a Senate race. You can't win a presidential race and he's not going to win the governor's race. And man, again, I have plenty of disagreements with governor Abbott on a lot of things. I don't think he acts fast enough. I think he's been fine. I don't think he's like Kemp, who's a total disaster. But if you want to turn me into a big Greg Abbott fan, congratulations, Robert Francis o'rourke. You've done that as you bum rush the stage and make yourself look like a fool, make your entire political party look like nothing more than opportunists. Okay, all right, let's just play it. Excuse me. You're out of line and an embarrassment. And you're doing nothing. No, please. How do you sit in the place to talk to yourself? This is totally predictable when you are out of line. Sir, you're out alive. I'm sure you are alive. Please leave us all. I can't believe you're a 6. Did we come to a deal like this to make a political issue? Sounds like he, why don't you get out of here? I'm not quite sure what Robert Francis o'rourke was saying, but he felt necessary to bum rush the stage and Ted Cruz is just losing it. And I think just kind of like the local sheriff came up and was like, you're an embarrassment. How dare you do this? We have not identified all the bodies. Hasn't been

"We have a question from nick who senator a republicans considering invoking the twenty fifth amendment. I'm president biden So rick Republican from florida suggested that on tv about a week ago To be honest. I think the real answer is no. I think it's being suggested It actually wouldn't be republicans who invoke it. It's the president's cabinet who invokes it So republicans can't invoke it And my take. I think that is exceedingly unlikely. it There was a lot of talk about the twenty fifth amendment being invoked by donald trump. And and it's a on. Donald trump democrats pushed that media. Push that and i think it is a species of the weaponization of our constitutional structures Listen the twenty-fifth amendment is designed if the president has a stroke and it's completely incapacitated that then you do have the capacity to make sure you have a president able to function yup biden has lost a step to be clear but the republicans who are talking about using the twenty-fifth amendment. They don't like the policy steps he's implementing. I don't like the policy steps she's implemented. I think they're terrible for the country. But but i don't think the twenty fifth amendment is the mechanism to deal with that the real mechanism to deal with that is number one fighting through the political process but number two winning elections right. And there's also the practical question of if the twenty-fifth amendment were invoked by the cabinet. Then you'd have president harris. I'm not exactly clamoring for that. And i don't see how else doing so either now. Look i think that's right and and you heard Rick scott a week ago called for the twenty fifth amendment Lindsey graham has been calling for impeachment over afghanistan Listen we just came through.

"They had not changed the rules of engagement. What has changed is that under obama decisions of engaging. The enemy went all the way up the chain literally to the white house to the national security council. So when you went encountered the enemy you would have some bureaucrat. At the nfc deciding whether or not to engage the joke in in the pentagon as they called susan rice the national security adviser general rice because she was deploying troops and moving them here. It was like a game of risk sitting in the white house thousands of miles away and trump early. On made one very simple decision he delegated decision-making down to the warfighters to the war fighters on the ground so that under trump when you encountered isis terrorists you could just take them out. You didn't need to wait days for for white house approval on that specific interaction. If you encountered the enemy you could take out and within months. We defeated isis. That same principle if you look at a contrast and by the way once we defeated isis trump. I think rightly said all right. Let's get out. That is a balance that make sense of be strong and vigorous when you are defending our nation. But don't leave our soldiers in harm's way permanently don't lose sight of their mission and the weird thing michael. I think the overwhelming majority of americans agree with that I think it's i mean you're looking at seven eighty percent of americans and virtually nobody in the us. Congress agrees with it. I it's one of the oddest disconnects between the voters in our elected representatives and one final point one of the challenges of foreign policy is when it's discussed on the news. It's disgust fifteen. Second sound bytes. So everything gets sort of simple and binary you're either always invade or never invade and this stuff. Frankly i think these topics are much more suitable for something like a podcast where we can discuss something and a little bit more depth to understand that that you don't have to have a choice of zero or eleven that that that you can fact be strong and at the same time judicious about when and where you use your strength you would hope that these kinds of conversations that parse the nuances that recognize that different situations will call for different american responses. Recognized that all of these situations call for basic confidence. You would hope that if we can discuss them on a podcast that it would be discussed in that way at the white house state department the pentagon but unfortunately in the past couple of weeks we have not really seen that and talk. About the disconnect. I think the american people one of the few things that's truly united. Everyone in the past several years is that this was just completely bungled well at a minimum someone at the pentagon and the white house should have said. Hey maybe we shouldn't give a bunch of black hawk helicopters to the taliban you would think that would have occurred to somebody on that audacious netter niki and sort of grand strategic idea. Maybe we shouldn't be given blackhawks to terrorists. We've got to leave it. There will be much more to talk about in coming weeks. But that's all right now. I'm michael knowles.

"Is the following. I think the vital the touchstone for any military action in the touchstone for our foreign policy should be protecting and defending the vital national security interests of the united states that we should not be engaged in nation building. We should not be trying to transform distant lands into democratic utopias. We should be protecting america. What does that mean in practice. Because that's all theoretical so let's break it down and practice and let me give a couple of examples from the past and then let's fast forward to afghanistan in the past. Barack obama was president and obama proposed attacking syria because they crossed the red line of using chemical weapons drawn a red line. Shar assad used chemical weapons. He said all right. Let's launch an attack. I initially michael kept it open minded. That and and i said okay. Let me hear. The commander in chief articulate how this is in our national security interests articulate how it makes america safer and had there been a clear defined mission That was defending our national security interest. I might have supported that what ended up happening as the obama administration was utterly incoherent at one point John kerry said we're gonna launch an unbelievably small attack. It was like okay. Well then what's the point of it like what. What exactly are you trying to accomplish. And it was basically show you bazaar you'll barely even notice in. It's going to be so small. That was their defensive. It and and listen. I will readily concede. Shaher saad is a monster who's murdered hundreds of thousands of his own citizens. But the question. I ask is okay if you topple his regime. How do you stop the chemical weapons from falling into the hands of radical islamic terrorists like al qaeda and isis and our new straw. And that would be a much worse outcome. That would make america less safe than it was. Before and the obama administration had no coherent answer to that question. So i oppose military action in syria because it wasn't further our national security and in that way rand paul and i were both agreed on that although for very very different reasons on the other hand when it concerns iran.

So how's it happening. Well that's right. We talked about in an earlier verdict. the theory that i thought big tech could be held accountable for and and it turned out that the theory that we talked about is in fact. The theory that is embodied in the class action lawsuit that that president trump filed Against big tech and the theory is that they're violating the first amendment. Now the challenge with that is the first amendment doesn't apply to private companies The first amendment begins with the words. Congress will make no law and so the first amendment is binding against the federal government And and through a process called inc.

There's no doubt the three supreme court justices that president trump put on the court will be a very significant legacy of his and it may prove his most long lasting legacy but experience teaches us.

I didn't try to indoctrinate my students to be conservatives. I wanted to be a teacher. So i tried to present them. I taught a seminar on supreme court litigation and so i would teach them what the views of the different justices where i teach them what justice. Scalia believed that. Teach them what ruth bader ginsburg believed. I would in the course of. Its say what i thought but but actually that that very much took a back seat to try to get them to understand the range of us and come to their own conclusions and and and i would have the students argue actual cases that were pending before the court so it was a fun. Class was a small class and the students would argue. Typically seven cases that were actually being argued before the supreme court that term and every student would brief argue two cases and in the remaining cases they would sit as justices and they were actual justices. So one week. You might be chief justice roberts the next week you might be scalia. The next week you might be brier and the first hour of the class was the oral argument where the students would present the argument. The second hour the class the justices retired to conference and the case and voted and they had to vote in the shoes of the justice who they were playing and then they had to write an opinion on it and and and it was designed some of the most some of the best teaching moments were when you had people arguing contrary to their ideological disposition so I remember there was one very liberal woman. Who was arguing on. Behalf of some pro-life protestors and i think that was a valuable teaching moment for her to present those arguments. There was another fellow as a west point grad very conservative student Who was arguing on behalf of a gitmo terrorists and and.

"It has been a tough couple of weeks for freedom. New threats to our freedom of speech free elections freedom of movement the freedom to defend ourselves even the freedom of nations to oppose. Whoa corporations thankfully. Senator cruz is finally back from meeting with bibi. Netanyahu is back from israel. We can hash all of this out. This is verdict with ted cruz Welcome back to verdict with ted cruz. I'm michael knowles senator. Welcome back to the states. I'm glad you're back. Michael good to be with you so i want to hear all about israel. I want to hear about this meeting with bb. Netanyahu you were with him on actually rather an historic day. But i don't want to talk about that right now. I want to be very selfish. And i get to things that directly affect me namely there is a new rule being passed by the atf. that's the bureau of alcohol tobacco and firearms three of my favorite things. We were warned that the new atf picks were on the radical side But the headlines. I'm seeing is that. There are new threats to very popular weapons and the second amendment. Wh what is happening well So the atf. Put out a new rule. Today that prohibited stabilizing grips on pistols So shoulder stocks on pistols And under the law what basically they say if you attach a shoulder stock to a pistol You turn it into a showroom armed rifle And short armed rifles under the law. Have to be specially registered doubt. Why does this matter well. It matters because according to the congressional research service there anywhere between ten million and forty million of these stabilizing grips. That are out there. That that americans own and so by by the flip of a pan Atf may be making anywhere from ten million to forty million americans into felons unless they suddenly go and register their firearms. And all of this is being done by arbitrary fiat now is there any legitimacy to the argument. I mean i. I see your point political point that this is going to basically just take a ton of guns off the table which seems to be the ultimate goal of the biden administration but is there any legitimacy to the argument that well actually when you put this sort of stabilizing grip on actually it does kind of turn it into a rifle or is it. Is it just an excuse. So if the objective is preventing crime there are no data to suggest that that that adding a grip to a pistol. Some suddenly makes it more dangerous. Suddenly leads more crimes that those are not the weapons that tend to be used in crimes. The most common weapons that are used in crimes are revolvers..

"It is and so But it's also the power of the executive branch you know when when I was in Congress as in boy I. All I wanted to do is make sure that Congress was empowered. A little bit different role now if we work hand in glove. I think what we can do. This president is willing to do things that most presidents are not willing to do. and and take political risk. Yeah, we've had an embassy that in in Jerusalem as something that Nice share passionately together that would, it's been promised before. And it never happened. Republican and Democratic presidents broken that promise trump is the first one to follow through. I have to make a confession when president trump when he was running, he said I'm GonNa. move the embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. I just didn't believe him. I said that's the sort of thing say, but then they don't actually do it and I think a lot of people in Washington thought that, and then when it actually happened, everybody was so surprised. One thing that's really unusual. This administration is the kind of lead person on on Israel. Policy has been the US bastard Israel David Friedman. who great guys become a close friend? And it's unusual I don't know any instance. Passengers had that kind of influence, and it's because the president knows and trust him and David is passionately committed to strengthening. The US is relationship but I. I worked very closely with David after the president made the announcement. The nature of Washington, the swamp the State Department foggy bottom. Do not want this to happen, so here's how they would normally kill. It would just slow. Roll it. We need to study for a year the feasability we need to do a security assessment who we need. We need to do this and that and their plan. It was clear what their plan was going to be. Delay it for years. Jump Right. They were hoping trump loses reelection, and then the next the Democrat. WHO COMES IN? We'll cancel the announced. And what the trump administration didn't David was the point person I said David the only way this happens. If you open the damn embassy, you don't announce it right you in it. And they found a facility that was a consular facility in Jerusalem within a year. Open the damn thing. I've never seen anything like it, and there has been nasty and bureaucracy at state was shocked but that. The scenes like the urgency of understanding. And and so true, and you talk about behind the scenes so one story that I don't think is out. There is so the State Department pushing back. You know continuing to push back. I think they gave a list of the pros and cons, and so there were a whole long list of all these cards. Zero Pros, okay. Yeah, no, no I'm telling you may subtle. And so that's something Ben get reported so I literally was. You got all these reasons not to do it and no reasons to do it and yet this president stayed true to his campaign promise, and but but it takes the encouragement. Sometimes. It's a phone call from Ted Cruz in the middle of night. Say you know Golly, it's the right thing to do and. And in that affirmation makes a big Dif- well. This is what you said earlier is very interesting to me. This idea that the chief of staff is the gatekeeper, but the flipside is, it means you're the megaphone for good ideas. You're the megaphone ideas that you're hearing from people and let me give a real time exam, so spin office couple months. Yeah,.
