Former ICE Director Tom Homan Answers the Question: Is the U.S. Border Closed?
"The border is closed according to the man who runs the Department of Homeland Security for the senile old Giza in The White House who sadly bears the title president of the United States. I think I have somebody in studio who begs to differ. We are one on one with none other than that truth teller extraordinaire, former director of ice Tom Holman. Welcome here in America first. Thanks for having me, Seth. Appreciate it. So you were there? For how many years 31? 34 and a half, I'm 35. 34 and a half year serving this nation in numerous facilities, securing the border is the border closed like secretary Mallorca's just said in front of Congress. Absolutely not. And they need to take action. Look, he's under oath. I don't know how he's going to say the borders closed. We all seen the videotape. Look, 600,000 illegal aliens have been released into the country by CBP. 600,000 releases. And that's not counting who ice is releasing at the order of political pointees when the DHS. So at least 600,000 releases that came across that border were released. Many with COVID, manual criminal histories. Add to that, the 400,000 just short of 400,000 galways. Right there as the man

I'm going to take my chances. I'm going to be careful where I need to be careful, but I'm going to do what's right for me. For the left, that's not good enough.

Jen Psaki Flubs Question Over China Missile Development
"That. Now I want to go to a Jen Psaki whopper yesterday. And were you in the press room yesterday? Yes. Okay. Do you know what I'm going to get? I don't know. Okay. It is cut number 17. You comment on reports that China has saved a nuclear capable hypersonic missile over this summer to the surprise of your professional as accurate and raised concerns about Chinese people's capability. I know general secretary Austin, I should say, was asked this question this morning and addressed it. But I'm not going to comment on the specific report. I can say echo what he said, which is generally speaking, we've made clear our concerns about the military capabilities that the PRC continues to pursue. And we have been consistent in our approach with China. We welcome stiff competition, but we don't do not want that competition to veer into conflict. And that is certainly what we convey privately as well. We welcome stiff competition, caught the eye of every person who follows nuclear weapons and especially hypersonics, Michael scheer. Did that sound like a clunker off of your ear when you heard it? Yeah, it did. I mean, you know. Welcoming stiff competition is what you normally think of in terms of perhaps development of consumer technology or something that doesn't have national security implications. It's hard to imagine the administration truly welcoming stiff competition when it comes to development of nuclear weapons or advanced advanced deployment systems of nuclear warheads. I mean, so yes that seemed to me to be at odd way of phrasing that
Could Mike Pompeo, Robert O'Brien, Make a Run for POTUS?
"Yeah, David drucker, I am going to moderate a debate of would be senators in ohioans on a night, the 6 Republicans who are running three nights at Senate to replace rob Portman, and I'm reading in Trump shattered or prepare for that debate. They might want to get a hold of a copy themselves if they want to know what I'm thinking about. I think you're going to sell like hotcakes. I can not wait to read this, but I wanted to ask you, I know that two of the profiles in the book are of Robert O'Brien and Mike Pompeo. I was with both of those men last week. I'm curious what your assessment of both of their intentions and odds are showed president Trump not enter the race. And if he should. Well, it's very interesting. Let me start with Mike Pompeo, the former Secretary of State because I spent so much time researching him and reporting on it. He wants to run for president. And in fact, in a podcast interview a couple of weeks ago and it's a companion to my book, so it's also athlete titled in Trump's shadow. I asked secretary Pompeo, if I said I know you're not going to tell me if you're running or not today, I'm not that I'm not that crazy. But I said, if Trump decides to run a third time, does that automatically mean you will not. And he would not say as some have said that that automatically means he would not. He said, look, if you're going to run for president, you need to believe that you have something unique and critical to offer the country at a time in history. He is planning to run and everything he is doing is about planning to run. Robert O'Brien, who I profile less, but did mention is a very interesting figure because he comes from the traditional wing of the party, but he fit in very well with Trump in The White House and was his most successful national security adviser from the perspective of doing the job and not getting crosswise with the commander in chief. Could be a very interesting dark horse candidate as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. He's a Mormon. He comes from the west. There are pockets of Mormon voters in Arizona and Nevada, Idaho, other states where multi candidate primary, you might be able to do some damage. He's also interested in running. I classify him as less interested in Pompeo.

Fox News' Dana Perino Remembers Colin Powell
"Dana perino, of course, served under George W Bush, new Colin Powell, shed the following on Fox News. But yes, I've long admired him. I remember all edge during the Gulf War. What this man is very impressive. And then the fact that I actually got to meet him and work with him, work under him, really, as the Secretary of State, it is just remarkable as ainsley as you were reading the statement and talking about his life in the previous segment in the previous interview. You realize that this man was such a man of consequence. And a consummate public servant, serving all of those years. And I was surprised to read. He was 84. Because in many ways, to me, he was ageless. In addition to all of the amazing work that he did as a military leader, one thing that people might not remember is he started an organization called America's promise. And that really encouraged civic engagement and volunteer work. And there was a little red wagon logo, and I'm a good friend as a race sale who had worked for president George H. W. Bush, then worked in his office and correspondence. And she would tell me such amazing stories about him. And then fast forward. I remember as a deputy press secretary standing in the back of the room, the east room one day and there was a, I believe it was Karzai, who achman Karzai from Afghanistan was giving a speech. And I was standing in the back of the room and Colin Powell just happened to be next to me. And I remember being very impressed by augment caramelized speech. And I said something to Colin Powell I said, wow. He is a very impressive. And Colin Powell gave me advice that I've lived with ever since, and he said, Dana, just beware of people who might be want to be dictators who speak very good English. And that was so interesting. But if you think about all the leaders that we've seen, come up through the ranks that America likes to support and then unfortunately turns out to be somebody that you question in the end. I would also say that he was a great stature. The way that he conducted himself, I really commend his books to people out there, young people who are looking to learn about leadership. He really was a consummate professional. Dana perino, who served in the Bush administration, reflected on the passing of general Colin

"under secretary" Discussed on 860AM The Answer
"You at the podcast. I put up every day I'm joined now by the governor of Arkansas is the Hutchinson Morning, Governor. Welcome back. Well, thank you Hear it. It's great to be with you this morning. Well, I want to tell people your former United States attorney, a former congressman of former had a DEA, the Drug enforcement agency, and that matters a great deal of what we're about to talk about. And the under secretary of Homeland Security for the border and for transportation, security. And now the governor of Arkansas. However, you are currently in the spotlight for Urging the Congress to pass the equal act. Can you first tell us what the equal act does very simply it equalize the punishment, whether you have crack cocaine or powder cocaine. What happened back in the eighties, when I was U. S attorney under Reagan. Actually, 1986 crack cocaine became a great concern and the scare And so we elevated the punishment to 100 to 1. The ratio as it would be as compared to powder cocaine if you possessed it and over the course of time Senator sessions Was one of the Republican leaders that helped reduce that down to 18 to 1, But we haven't finished the job yet. So even today, if someone and and of course, the crack cocaine defendants or about 82% of our African Americans And the powder cocaine or it's predominantly white. And so there's a racial disparity there. And so it really undermines confidence in our system. When you have unequal punishments for the same type of substance and chemically, they're the same. And so that's why it's called the Equal Act. I've pushed this not recently, but I've pushed it for 20 years, and it's a fairness issue and as a conservative Republican, this is one of those things that we can speak out for. As equal treatment under the law, and it builds confidence in our police and our criminal justice system. So I support that equal treatment. Well, governor when I was a clerk in the wig long ago time on the D. C circuit Judge McKinnon. My judge was on the sentencing commission. And the Sentencing Commission was a pretty broadly based group that came up with the sentencing guidelines, which are pretty rigid. Why did it originally strike people that crack cocaine was so much worse than white powder cocaine? Well, actually, this is a congressional mandate. So Congress reacted to Len Bias is death who was a college athlete who died of crack cocaine overdose. It just shocked everyone. And so, they said. We've got to do something about this. So they put in these mandatory minimum sentences, but it started at a very low level of small amount of possession. All of a sudden, you know, requires you to go to prison for five or 10 years. And so it started with Congress. The Sentencing Commission actually reviewed it later and made recommendations to equalize that And to adjust that, But one of the important things is, you know, people say, Well, crack cocaine. There's more violence associated with it. Well, the sentencing grid as you know. Few allows for well if there's possession of a gun that's going to be a mandatory minimum or if there's more victims, they have the ability to give longer sentences for The violence, but we shouldn't do it based upon simply the quantity and the distinct between crack and powder. Now what I was getting at. I just genuinely don't know when the first step back was before Congress. I opposed it until an amendment was made that up the penalties for fentanyl distributor distributors because I think fentanyl is just like giving people death. Is there a difference in impact of crack cocaine and white powdered cocaine in the addiction and the death rate Because the one the dealers of it in fentanyl should just never get out of jail again because they're dealing death. What about the differences between the forms of cocaine? Well, that's a good question. And I agree 100% with you that we've got to put our resources on fentanyl. That's what's causing death. And whenever the the use the seizures, the cases of crack and powder cocaine Are not rising. They are leveling off, if anything and might have made the case that they've gone down some, but the deaths have gone up of overdose because their lace in it with fentanyl And so fentanyl is absolutely the problem and so and whether that's you know, combined with crack cocaine or whether it's powder cocaine..

"That's money in the bank. All right, Tom, too quick Sister Corbett stories and the first one seems like something from a Hallmark movie. It's like I've got this idea how we're going to cheer up people's spirits at the same time. How are we going to let everybody know? Let me ask you this who is the most trustworthy person we could possibly think of. I don't know. Santa Claus. Brilliant, exactly. All right, lips. Let's get every single Santa Claus and we'll do all sorts of commercials. Get $250 million in the government and we'll do radio podcast television and we'll have Santa Claus say to everybody. Hey, guess what? I'm bringing you for Christmas. I'm bringing you a vaccine. And you could trust me because I'm Santa Claus. I break into your house once a year and leave presents, So trust me. And that's the idea that was sold to a bunch of Santa clauses. And what would they get in return Tom they would get first access to the vaccine. Brilliant Phillips. Exactly So Santa clauses are you with me, and they're like we're with you. And with that, the guy said Trump is gonna love this idea. Doesn't this sound like a Hallmark movie commercial? Doesn't write exactly. Yeah, so and finally happen to the great idea. So what happened is the guy who suggested it any Michael Caputo hey, was like an under secretary of Health and human services HHS. It was his brainchild and he got in a little hot water about a month or so ago. He started spouting these kind of right wing conspiracy ideas and then accused the the doctors in the CDC under his department of Sedition and all that, And so they decided, he decided that he was going to take a 60 Day medical leave. And not come back, at least until you know, like, a month after the election, And at this point, this story is percolating, You know, Unbeknownst supposedly to the HHS secretary, Mr A's are he says? This is the first I've heard of this. This is ridiculous. I'm not going there. Why would he do this? Why would he be anti Santa? Well, at least one of the actors that they had contacted to help do something along this line. Long Elise lines. Dennis Quaid said that He was made uncomfortable, he says, because people thought that it looked like he was endorsing Trump's approach Tio vaccine or something that it was because after all, the vaccine probably wouldn't be ready in time for Christmas. Were they somehow, you know, cashing in and it wasn't to political. And so, he says, I don't really feel that comfortable doing this. And at that point, the my guess is John. The HHS secretary says this is not worth it. This wasn't my idea. I had never had been told This. Let's just drop the whole thing, something that's a lasting Ryan's another political controversy involving Santa So personally, it's to me it's It's not a bad idea. I know I kind of feel its way. If you come in now offer, then offering them vaccines ahead of time, I guess probably fits their overweight. They're over, 60 said. They'd be like, Yeah, I needed bad right, Especially if someone's going to come sit in my lap. But the problem is, I don't think anyone is going to be sitting in their laps. So then it's It's sort of premature. I also wonder how I mean. I assume that anti Baxter's believe in step plus two. I wonder if they would feel like somehow Santa Clauses being co opted. Oh, by the by the SA's the public service. Way went. How did somebody find out about this? Did somebody come forward of Santa Claus complained that it didn't It didn't fly. Well, no. I mean, I think the only the only high profile aspect was when Quaid kind of Withdrew from the assignment. Beyond that, I'm not quite sure accepted. You know who's disappointed are all the Santa clauses they all thought they were going to get early access to the vaccine, so they're disappointed. The problem is is that if we can believe the secretaries are that he wasn't informed..

So what degree of C- Will Beijing be at over this visit? ? Well I think we're seeing it now. . I mean a great deal of of rather dangerous firepower is buzzing around at the moment <hes> An. .

You correctly observed that the US envoy is there to attend the memorial service for a former Taiwanese president. . He will also be meeting with the current Taiwanese president is likely that anything of actual substance is being discussed between the president of one country and the Under Secretary of state for you know whatever from the other one or is this again? ?

Is there much of that? Or can they get the help? Pretty much questions without questions. Mental mental health care is provided virtually without questions will come back and loop in on that, but some of the access to other benefits we do have to make sure you're qualified to earn. So there is some of that. But our processing time new greatly reduced from back in the day. You know, four years ago or more. We take you more than a year to get those questions answered. Now we do on average about three months. But again, we have to go through this because we have got enforce. The law makes you really veterans are accessing these benefits, not anybody else. And of course, if somebody's saying I lost some hearing because I did my military service, and they found out that the person was working more of a desk job or a job, not around munitions and an ammunition, and they and they like to go hunting and run power tools, I'm sure that that some of those questions come out where we say is this service connected But on on mental health, it sounds like it's not Dr Lawrence. Where and how can they connected this tele townhall coming up? Sure they call 8333800417 pushed our three and you can ask a question. It'll be a few minutes with me. Mostly answering question. Sounds good, Dr Lawrence. Thanks very much. We'll put that number up on the website as well. That's Dr Paul Lawrence, the under secretary of the VA..

"Let's think the big so they do jake and his colleagues are reporting to Wendy Sherman the Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs. I joke about motherhood that if you've had a two year old or a teenager you've become a good negotiator. I'd be selling Wendy Short. If I described her as anything less than a force she wants proof Congress just minutes after breaking her pinky finger with the finger still L. sticking out at a right angle. She says it was probably the most focused briefing of her life. Wendy describes the negotiations as Rubik's cube because they were all all these interlocking pieces how many centrifuges what level of enrichment what facilities would be closed down. What kinds of inspections would be required. How would we verify this and in September twenty thirteen one of those pieces falls into place just after Ronald new president moderate named Hassan Rohani just now I spoke on the phone with President Ronnie via Slavic Republic of Iraq. It was just a fifteen minute phone call but one Sunday was thirty four years in the making the very fact that this was the first communications between an American and Iranian president since Nineteen seventy-nine nine underscores the deep mistrust between our countries but it also indicates the prospect of moving beyond that difficult history. I- Thanksgiving giving the team has an interim deal which puts a short-term freeze on Iran's nuclear program and buys everyone a little time but now jake secret negotiations out there for all the world to see and the clock is ticking by this time. President Obama's won his second term so we have some room to take the risk but he has to keep the momentum so he decides to put all his chips on the table. Iran he decides will be his signature foreign policy achievement the US negotiating team like joke about the movie version of what comes next I would be played by Meryl Streep from the Devil Wears Prada because she had silver over here like I do wendy's a dead ringer for streep's character. My team quickly assured me it wasn't because I was horrible as she was they also decided Ted Danson Anson would play John Kerry and Jake he'd be played by MacAulay Culkin. We're guessing at this point. They probably needed to have a little fun. Iran's nuclear program was so close to a weapon failing to get the deal could be dire and one reason. Why is this complicated little detail that we're going to go ahead and have Ernie Monet's. He's explained he's a nuclear physicist and he was secretary of energy. At the time. The deal was negotiated and just in case you're wondering he was also a character in the movie version of tale well. They decided that you were heavier Bardem. Oh previously that's connection has been made Mo- Nieces Harris as long wavy. It definitely resembles Barshop than one very specific movie especially when he was the murderer in was it nope you know. Kinda low country for old men yeah to come watching too many shows. How do you feel about that comparison on it's fine as long as it's focusing on him as a mass murder her so here it is uranium contains two principal isotopes. The important one is called you to thirty five the uranium you find in nature is made up of less than one percent of Youtube thirty five so if you want to build a nuclear power plant. You'll need four or five percent. How do you get there. I think about a big tub of jelly beans. Let's say this rare isotopes the Youtube thirty five. There's something good would something like watermelon visit green right all the other. Jelly beans are white flexible yellow. There's popcorn flavored. Jelly beans are the worst you and your job is to start picking out the white jelly beans at tossing them aside you do this for a while and now you're still has mostly white jelly beans in it. It has a higher concentration of those special green ones the tasty watermelon. This is basically what centrifuge does then you. Pour your jelly beans into a new TUB and you start all over an hour. Now you'll have gone through a lot of work a lot of jelly beans right so when you want to go to the next step is far ORF. You're that you're gonNA kind of tossing out so the sorting processes speeding up as you see them all there and the workers eating less now. Let's say you want to go a step further. You WanNa make radio isotopes for cancer treatment so now you need uranium enriched to twenty percent and this this is where nuclear experts draw a line in the jelly beans It's a bit arbitrary as a marker but remember the more enriched uranium. I'm is the smaller your tub of Jelly beans and the less work you have to do to enrich the rest of the way a lot of times people snuggle up to the twenty percent line as close as they can. Iran had snuggled right up to twenty percent and if you WANNA go to a nuclear weapon then typically you would go to above ninety percent and it's west one of the reasons of great concern is that it doesn't doesn't take much more to put that material through the centrifuges and get to bomb material. Iran had roughly nineteen thousand centrifuges. Money's dead the math. If you made the assumption that Iran wanted to use those centrifuges all out to make the ninety percent material for a nuclear weapon they would be able to do that. Let's say in two three months. It's two to three months and as the accumulate more and more material than that timeframe would get even shorter so the clock was ticking and it was ticking fast and Iran was added capabilities month by month year by year and that meant that at the window for diplomacy was closing and the possibility of military force of war was rising by the summer of two thousand fifteen. Iran nuclear talks are in full swing but it's an uphill slog secretary of state. John Kerry takes to his bike to blow off some steam. Get great exercise. It's environmentally friendly. It's great for Stress Relief and and I find that I can think through problems writer speech. He might not know this but he's really into cycling. He's been known onto show up at the Tour de France and spout. Nelson Mandela quotes like this one to his favorite writers. It always seems impossible until it is done. The Torah is a grueling race. These it's like running a marathon day uphill for almost a month and at this point it seems like a pretty good metaphor for the Iran talks so security gets in his bike and heads for a big time in the French Alps to clear his mind. We're secretary of state. John Kerry has been hospitalized. After a biking accident France. The State Department just announced that he's calling off his diplomatic listening information as Secretary of state has in fact broken his leg fractured to the right femur. He's he's not traveling directly back to Boston for treatment. Diplomacy isn't exactly thought of his high impact sport so the sheer number of broken bones associated with this particular deal all is a little surprising but even more telling than the injuries themselves might be the team's reaction to them when Kerry breaks his leg on his bike in the middle of negotiations he pretty much toughs it out and so he did his last two and a half weeks in Vienna on crutches and in some pain with very little pain medication because he wanted to be mentally acute. Wendy also has another mishap. It's not quite as bad as that finger but it's close. I was rushing up to a a secure phone and I ran into a glass door. I have quite a bit and my team said Oh time for the ambulance. I said no no no. No you clearly not mothers. Get me a some ice. I went to a great ear nose and throat doctor in Vienna the next day who took care of all the opera singers and all though is broken in several places you don't do much for broken noses these days unless they're really skew and makeup helped a great deal sort of like the opera singers as it turns out the show goes on and it takes almost two grueling years but finally U. S. Secretary of State John Kerry arrives arrives in Vienna to meet with his Iranian and e you counterparts in a push to reach a final agreement on the team finds itself at the finish line and it's beautiful in more ways than one so the Palais Coburg is sort of like a white wedding cake in terms of the way it looks the hotel had been a favourite quite frankly of Russian oligarchs so it was rather overdone John on carrying the negotiators remain walled off behind the baroque facade of a former pilots where gun powder was stored underground to defend Vienna from the Ottoman and there was an important balcony so that those particularly my Russian Chinese colleagues who needed a smoke could go out on the Balcony and get their smoke rock the city of Mozart Strauss and chocolate compensating little for all those special occasions back hope folks back in for a few you days with the sense that a deal is right around the band they worked day and night hammering out the final details and soon that beautiful place starts to feel less like a palace breath and more like a prison. We are not yet where we need to be on. Several of the most difficult issues one morning. I think it was a Saturday Saturday morning. I came down to the lobby and all of the Iranians were dressed casually and they had gathered there in the lobby and ask them where they were going and they said said they had rented a bus to go on the sound of music tour and Salzburg as in Julie Andrews belting it out running from Nazis and so I was asking them you know what what is that and they very enthusiastically described to me the way this works is the bus plays the songs and they drive around to all of the sites from the movie like the Gazebo and you know the Meadow Hills are alive and they were all loading up to go do this because the sound of music apparently is a was a smash hit in Iran and it's like this is the kind of thing where you have to remember. These guys are representatives of a repressive aggressive regime. They are kind of constantly lying to us about the nature of their programs but they're also guys going out on a Saturday morning on the sound of music tour and that cognitive dissonance really I think is part of diplomacy and there's a very human aspect to all of this that I think is just really important for us to take into account. The stuff doesn't doesn't happen like cooked up in a laboratory. It's carried out among human beings across the table with all the imperfections that they bring but if there's one thing diplomacy AC- isn't it's fast. A week goes by then two weeks. I was there for twenty seven straight days eight exactly one one meal outside the hotel negotiators are washing their underwear in the sink and reporters are sleeping on the floor of the press tent they blow right past the deadline for negotiations and the US threatens to walk the high stakes game of deal or no deal continues in Vienna at this point. This negotiation could go either way. There are gaps they can't get across especially when it comes to how many centrifuges Iran keep and what to do with a heavy water facility that can produce plutonium which could be a second second path to a nuclear bomb. The tension builds for almost a month and finally progress has been reported in two key areas the pace of sanctions relief and a probe into whether Tehran's nuclear activities so close they can taste the flight home..

"National security and foreign affairs expert. Lieutenant Colonel Robert mcginnis US army retired is here, and we are talking about artificial intelligence on coast to coast AM and Bob back in February. Although I didn't get a lot of attention in the media, President Trump signed an executive order regarding artificial intelligence, what was that all about? Well, as you said in the previous segment Richard that DARPA is way behind the Chinese on spending. In fact, you know, we know that China has declared it's going to be the dominant AI force in the world by twenty thirty and the president basically called on the federal agencies to develop artificial intelligence capabilities for us economically as well as for the defense of this nation, and he he put out that high level guidance, and basically said spend more wisely on these types of technologies. He, of course, talks about the. The internet of things and five G. And and all the things that we must do to really bring the US government online. I, you know, I'm reminded by something that the current under secretary of defense for research, and engineering said, and this is a quote, and there might be an artificial intelligence arms race. But we're not yet in it said, Dr Michael Griffin. In fact, the US government has stood up there at the Pentagon joint art official intelligence center. And so what we've tried to do much like inner space program under the space force. We've tried to bring all these AI projects under one umbrella. It's gonna take a while. And of course, due to bureaucratic infighting, and, you know, fighting for pieces of the budget. You know, we're not there yet. But at least we're moving in the right direction. I think the president's idea. Is appropriate because this is an arms race in arms race. Unlike anything we've ever seen how much weight though, though does an executive order like this carry. I mean, it's it's one thing to have congress passive law. But this is this is the president basically swiping his panic across a piece of paper. I mean is this gonna is an office is going to get it done. Of course, it won't get it done. Congress has had hearings on this in the past and the Pentagon and the rest of the federal agencies. They have to be focused on this issue. And frankly, there are a lot of distractions out there, you know, in a conventional way, you know, we're concerned about issues literally across the world. You know, even though the US defense department has a budget this year in Welham excess of seven hundred billion plus another one hundred and sixty billion for overseas contingency operations. A lot of that is already designated to conventional fighting and preparations and just normal readiness. But it's not focus on artificial intelligence. And yet that is the future. There's no question, certainly in my mind, and in the mind, I think those that are following all these intellectual and challenging future, you know, things right on our cusp. But you know, we still have to defend our border. We have to defend ourselves and our allies in Europe. And of course, with the Chinese double digit investing in ratcheting up their conventional forces, we have to keep that in mind. But at the same time, you know, we have to be able to do this. So it's a priority. But I don't think it really is. Sees federal government is. Yeah, right. I mean representatives congressmen senators they love defense spending because often it's it's like, you know, pork barrel, politics, it brings. A lot of money into a particular jurisdiction. So with artificial intelligence. I mean, how is that going to change the way that the defense is spent defense defense budgets are spent? Well, it has to be refocused, and we have to set very specific goals in terms of platforms that have to be either semi autonomous or Thomas. Whether it's in space, or it's electric warfare types of pieces, certainly submarines, you know, Vladimir Putin announced at his address to the nation earlier this month that you know, they have an atomic submarine that can stay underwater for as long as necessary because it's a nuclear capable submarine. You know, the Chinese have anti-satellite systems that we need, you know, we have one, but it's not quite as developed as a Chinese Russians and even the Indians test when a couple of weeks ago, you know, all of these technologies if we're going to be the world leader, and we're going to be able to maintain her own sovereignty and our own interests are crossed this world. We've got. To keep pace. And I I'm very concerned that we are. Now, you know, according to even. Public statements by senior defense officials. We are falling behind, and we're not willing at this point to invest significantly in the types of technologies that are going to be the future of this world. It's no secret that the Chinese or the People's Republic of China. They steal technology. They are renowned for this. And the United States is now engaged in. What appears to be the final stage of a major trade deal with China. Will. Will artificial intelligence. In some way, be a major component of this trade deal weather, it's an assurance from Chinese that they will stop stealing technology. What can be done through a trade arrangement to to to to perhaps to bring about some more parody. And in artificial intelligence. Well, part of that is of course about trade arrangements. You know, when we sit in companies over to China to try to get into their markets. We are often forced to compromise and give away the technologies that drive our own companies. And that's something that President Trump is trying to overcome and rightly so so that we don't have such a trade imbalance in favor of the Chinese. I think cyber if you look at how the Chinese have these very large, basically, a cyber army of personnel that are constantly, you know, trying to I suppose leverage cyber networks all over the world, certainly at the Pentagon where I work we have constant battle. There were millions and millions of hits on the US government on any given day and a lot of those come from the likes of, you know, whether it's the Russian federation or the North Koreans. Iranians. But I would say the lions majority of this is coming out of Chinese surrogates or Chinese unit set specifically designed to do this. So we've gotta figure out how to handle that. Now, you can of course, have a closed internet, but that's not going to help. You know, I think ultimately us to become the type of nation that we want to become now the Russians interestingly are very seriously, I'm moving toward a closed internet, and that's more. I think violation of their own civil liberties. But that's how Thawra -tarian governments work. Are you concerned about so many of our so much of US defense hardware has electron IX components that were built in China? Are you concerned about the possibility or the likelihood that that there is a sort of a back door into that technology that could be hacked by the Chinese, no doubt? That's why the president's considering executive order on while we because their technology and their platforms is security vulnerable. And we've noted that. And in fact, a lot of those are are banned for sale in in military. Yeah. Exchanges and the like, and we're starting to to move in a direction, hopefully that will force that company if they want to sell in this country to harden their their their hardware. This is part of a very serious issue about protecting our own infrastructure and protecting our own security. It's it's gone only gonna get worse as as we ratchet up the internet of things and five G technology, which makes essentially the the sharing of information hundreds of times faster than it is with typical four G. And of course, that modernizes the battlefield makes it far more lethal, and it it will change the whole civil liberties program for people in this country as well as elsewhere. Do you think we'll have to give up some civil liberties in order for the west to to achieve parody in in the artificial intelligence arms race. Well, that's the real debate. That's going on Richard. And you know, I think the president is right to have an executive order saying, look you folks have to get serious about this. And that's why I brought up this whole issue of AI now out of New York University that that really takes a hard look, and it's doing on an annual basis on these types of issues that are really making information it's hard to keep a secret anymore. I don't care unless you're living under a tree in the middle of a desert with no electron Electric's nearby. If you have something in your hand that can be tracked if you have personal data, which you know, you use to to buy something all of that can now be instantaneously tracked. And we can no just about anything. We want to know about anybody. And that I think ought to alarm all of us because big brother is here in spades. Do we need an A? I R. Well, we have. Of course, we have the army of the navy the air force. Now, we have we're talking about a space force. Do we need to rethink all of that? And maybe think about an AI force is that in the works. Well, in a way, it is they'll we won't have. I don't think in AI force per se, certainly the new space force is going to have a lot of AI integrated. You know, when you look at what we're doing with robotics. If you're looking at how we're going to slave off of a for subterranean, a massive urban operations, you know, the mega cities the autonomous platforms. We're already very much into trying to do this for the future, you know, for survival -bility along we have to do this for targeting and the like, and those are that really describes. A lot of what DARPA is doing. With the limited budget that it has to develop the semi autonomous systems that really tap into the power of artificial intelligence. When we think of artificial intelligence, most of us, myself included, we we think of things like robots and drones and semi autonomous. Armaments and so forth. But is it less about that? And more about things like cyber warfare attacks on banking systems attacks on power grits. Well, there's no question that when you have everything tethered to the same central system the internet, and that's why the Russians, of course, are looking at an independent internet. But if you you take that into account then. Yeah, it's it's very serious cyber is the way to get into your Bank account. You know, how many of us have sheets and sheets of passwords and change those passwords on a regular basis, and yet we get hack in spite of that why because you know, weird creatures of habit. The machines that were competing against our thinking smarter and better than we can because they have access to mega data in the cloud. You know, when I talked to Alexa in the morning, I ask her. What's what the weather is in someplace in the world? She is of course, just to trigger, but she's going into the cloud and has access to giant databases to pull down and tell me simple information. Well, now, we have something similar on. That criminals can use it governments can use and they can find out virtually anything that we have left a trace on whether it's our credit trace, or, you know, even our faces, you know, like, the Chinese are using with you the waiters in western China identifying faces and they're identifying expressions, and they're trying to anticipate activities that maybe not. So, you know, welcoming to those in in Beijing, this is the type of world we're moving into it's going to be very very difficult to contain as the giant data is excess. True, you know, a very fast GPK five network internet of things governments may not all be thinking of our best interest, but thinking of the elites and trust. These types of things that will transform not only are Konami. Our education systems are civil society. But also the military and the readiness of our forces around the world is five G Trojan horse, Bob. Well, it really is. You know, the Chinese are the ones that are pushing five G, and I was talking to a congressman last weekend. And I think congress is very much aware of the threat that if we don't jump on the bandwagon here and figure out how to regulate the the downloading of data and the access data in the cloud. It's going to not only transform society. But I think it's going to transform it in a way that we don't want. Yes, it is a Trojan horse, and the Chinese are pushing it, you know, if you follow what the Chinese are doing through belt and road initiative that was launched by president Xi back in twenty thirteen where are they today? Well, you know, just in the last two weeks they've made a deal with the devil there in Italy for four ports. You know? Angela Merkel sad about the EU. Yeah. We think will work with the R I and the Chinese and future. To a certain degree because of our own trade policies. But because they recognize that, you know, China's willingness to invest hundreds of billions of dollars across the globe in technologies in infrastructure is really beginning to transform the globe. In a way that China is set as a vision for twenty fifty which of course is one hundredth anniversary of the communist regime there in Beijing. How important is it to the Chinese or how important is it in terms of their superiority in a I to control the earth's are rare earth supply?.

What is what did she say summonsing is that what she said? Well, she called them slump. All right. We're listening to a former stripper whose a she's a great rapper. G? American treasure. Jan. Oh, yeah. Apple of America. Did know who the hell she was until Adam LeVine and the four other guys. Maroon five put her in a video, right? Quickly. Our producers disagreeing with me. But I can tell you for a fact I could ask ten of my friends right now, they would know she is even after the Adam LeVine video. But that's besides the point is not an age thing. Everybody has a mortgage and kids and like he's adulting time for that. So now, we gotta listen to this woman. Are you kidding me? This did she does he have an education. Hey, y'all.

We had that story before about those idiots. Who are from here who jumped up well, only one of them jumped off the cruise ship from eleven floors up. He lived, but he shot the live got arrested screwed up the cruise for everybody. Now in another cruise to talk about what's the? Yeah. You told me about okay? I think we should book this right now because this would be fascinating to me to talk to these people. This would be great. Can you imagine the nerds who would be in the flat earth cruise? Okay, now, isn't isn't there a guy that place for the patriots? Who is the Celtics Irving was the flat. But there's a lot of basketball players as it turns out to have a flat or a theory. They don't think the earth is round. And a lot of them. I believe the dinosaurs never existed. Really? I'm just telling you. Okay. But they can go at Cardi B. Yes. I'm concerned if you like to push conspiracy theories, you need to kick back and relax too. That's why the flat earth international conference so sticky flat earth crews and twenty twenty. So what happens when they get to the end of the earth. And it's going to go off the edge the turn around go back. Do they just zigzag? So they don't get to the end. I don't know. I don't even know what cruise line. It's going to be. It's promising a great time. With those believe the earth is flat. Yeah, provided they don't fall off the edge. Of course. Did they do? They not ever watch any of these. Okay. Maybe the SpaceX rocket launches. Now. Will they think that's all tricked up? Like, do you? Remember that old movie hangar? Eighteen or nineteen eighteen. The theory was the moon landing was all a TV show. Oh, so you'll have those folks on board too. Okay. Okay. What about the international space station pictures where they actually showed the earth in its round Photoshop. I'm so sorry. I want to be on this cruise because these people are not this would be very entertaining come on. That's what I said. I wanna be with the not sites fit right in. We gotta go where where's it going?

"Doing that. The people that are coming are all cartel and no fear. They're just doing it. So when you meet with when you met with Q, and you talk to Nielsen. How did she seem? Did. She just give you the whole. Yeah. I care. I care. And you think when she gets back to DC, she just rebounded. I was impressed. She was very intensive. She took some propaganda. We had from the categories that explained our position as ranchers on the border, and what we want to see them. Do. She didn't hand it to a staffer. She took notes while we were talking. Okay. Put it in her notebook. Indicate she made sure the under secretary was here to hear some more about it. I you know, I do think she's on the job don's pushing back. He's making sure that she does her job. Okay. So what exactly do you guys want friend Peggy Davis? Arizona ranchers right now on AM seven hundred live in Washington DC guys want besides border patrol on the border. Out here. Mandatory e verify it'd be great okay vote. Yeah. Tucson get out the vote. We can't afford to have Pearson. Cinemas our next Senator you brought that up because I look at this. And I'm not a fan of Martha Martha doesn't like to talk to me. She doesn't answer questions. But you guys, I'm not scary. You guys come on. I'm a nice person. Right. I put I shower, I call my hair loss. I dunno. Your your. Yeah today. It's true. Martha literally hasn't been on the show in three years. She won't return emails phone calls or people won't do that. And it's because she's flipped locked in. Oh, she was offered ACA. She was against the wall. She didn't like Trump and all of a sudden when he starts winning she jumps on the Trump train, which is fine. You know, I have no problem people make mistakes, it meant, you know, what I screwed up and you realize he'd be this good. I see what he's doing. But she won't say it. So you have her running from her past and cinema hunting from her past. And again, I I. Eat three pounds of dog poop or ten pounds of dog group. Well, we work with Martha pretty closely. Yeah. And in my eyes Tommy, well, I've never heard her say a bad word about the president. And she has been forthcoming with her feelings about DACA in the past. And in honest about it, and I think it's because of her military background. She just really wants to see that people who serve their country. Have you know, Cava? A bit of a leg up. I I get and I get that. So is it just Docker Scipion in the military because that's the sense. I get I'm just going to say. That's sense. I get is. It's her soft spot for the military more than anything, and we don't agree on everything. Yeah. But she she's very accessible to to us. When we when we need something. She's very accessible. In fact, we ran into her yesterday at the airport and had little visit with her sometime. Tell to me sometime I will do that this week. How's that? I've seriously. I appreciate that. I will let us know that John Kyle was appoint she broke the news early to. Yeah. Yeah. Well, we she learned it where we were standing there together. Joshing a text and then okay? I'll put some pressure on and get her to talk to you. But I really think has she done anything to help border security and people want to know this stuff. She really has. I mean, she hadn't been in office three weeks three weeks when she had twenty two legislators down there and Q including Mike McCall okay in Carson cinema. Was there that day? And she actually had me come to Washington on the thirteenth of September two thousand sixteen and talk to her subcommittee on border and maritime security, and and do a talk on the failure of defense in depth strategy. So she did all this, but has anything actually come of it? Well. That's I know she's only one person. That's that's the problem. I didn't even have a democrat in the room the day that I testified in front of congress not democrat in the room disagreed that defense in depth is a failed policy, but they want open borders, and you're you're just fighting tooth and toenail to to stop them. He really can't change it all by yourself. It's a complex problem. It's been going on too long. And there's no will in Washington to change it. And and Fred and Peggy Davis Ron Cannon AM seven ninety have that has Kirstin cinema ever reached out to you guys. Besides that. No, no, no, nothing. No. And she was Douglas a couple of weeks ago, but t didn't reach out to us. Oh, she was she told someone she remembered all of us, and when she came down there, and we were very helpful. But she didn't reach out to us at all. So Liam Marquez Peterson. Yes, who I'm not a fan of shockingly enough. I you know, she was on the show active. She didn't know what. Chain migration wise. She never liked Trump. I mean, there's all over Facebook. She posted all kinds of crap like herpes in never goes away. And it comes out she's against the wall. I mean, everything open borders everything. And now, unfortunately, she's the one that could possibly take Martha's places. She goes against. Another nut anchor Patrick. Yeah. Well, we have met with her. She has reached out to me met with her a couple of times. I, you know, I just think we have to keep in mind that we do not want an Kirk Patrick. So again, it's the, you know, no matter what you dog poop, you're gonna wind three pounds or ten pounds. Yeah. I think I think Leah is becoming more educated about the border in education is a fine thing. And I I do think that because she's met with us. She's getting a little bit different perspective. So, you know, I'm I'm hopeful in and I'm definitely going to support her her talks with us. She's not an open borders fan. Really? Yeah. When Trump said the wall, I had her in the head of the Tucson, Hispanic chamber. And she was against the nice said, why are you against Walt traders had trade happens on roads and rail lines? I'm not gonna stop that stuff. Yeah. What it is what it is. So you you met with her? She's not doesn't seem to be an open borders person. No. She was pretty supportive. Ranchers. I hope so I mean, how could you not be right? It makes it's it's mind boggling, I definitely I'm gonna supporter. Okay. Because you have to because the other one is just insane is absolutely not a good thing. Okay. And last one. I ask you all the time is the wall going to help in places. It definitely is needed. Would what if they came to you came to come to you? But we don't live on on on the border. Yeah. We're twenty five miles north. Do you think your friends though that are on the border? Yes. Well, absolute, okay. With the big giant wall? Well. Some are some aren't. But what people need to understand is so much of the border doesn't even have a row. Yeah. The agents can't even get there. You take Chilton's west. And there's a four wire fence it isn't. It's ancient. I mean, it doesn't mean keep cattle from going back and forth into Mexico. Something needs to be yes. To change. A serious problem mayor, and they need something. And I knew for one as an American and I consider myself a patriot. I have no problem with putting something there that Dillion aids. This is ours. This is yours. And that's that stay out. Exactly. I hope it happens. Listen, you guys are awesome. We do have to actually meet up in Tucson. We do. I know anytime he goes on on the radio station. Just let me know. All right. Just let me know I'm getting yelled at by a one year old and a five year old every day. So I'm that's why I'm enjoying my time here. So we'll continue Fred and Peggy Davis. Thank you so much for the perspective. Yes, vote the right way felt the right way. If you're not going to stay home the most.
