Ric Grenell: Fred Ryan's Management of Ronald Reagan Presidential Library Is Inconsistent

"It's really a shocking It's unacceptable and here's the other thing Mark is that the Reagan family And I don't mean just the personal family but The White House family the people that protect the Ronald Reagan legacy They allowed Fred Ryan to single handedly hone the legacy of Ronald Reagan into whatever Fred Ryan wants it to be I would argue that it's very inconsistent right now with who Ronald Reagan is Let me give you one perfect example And this is the situation that set me off Listening to secretary defense Lloyd Austin Go and be welcomed at the Ronald Reagan library to host the Reagan defense form To be ushered in national television and to be allowed to talk about China without saying a word about the incredible failure of Afghanistan We're just a few weeks away from this awful fallout and embarrassment for the United States And our defense secretary is bumbling through an interview and giving a speech on China and avoiding every possible question or push to answer some basic questions Why did we leave 10% of the Americans behind Ronald Reagan would have never led ten left 10% of the people behind And yet our Secretary of Defense is at the Reagan library not even answering the question mark Think

Sec. Austin Says , They Will Not Publishe Red Lines

"I listened with great interest to Brett bear's interview of Lloyd Austin at the Reagan forum on Saturday. Brett asked the Secretary of Defense, China's doing stuff in space attacking our satellites. We have a red line in space and the Secretary of Defense responded dust, cut 13. Always found that it's never a good idea to publish red lines. Stop right there. I would say that what's that mean to you? First of all, I think the word publish is important. It doesn't mean the same as set. It means the difference between making a threat privately versus making your threat publicly. So look, I can't say what the administration has done privately that I don't know about. But I think the biggest factor in all this red line stuff is whether the target of the red line believes the United States will actually follow up will actually do it. And I'm not sure that either China or Russia should believe that Joe Biden will actually do what he says. I mean, if you make a threat to somebody, you have to be prepared to follow up on it. Now, with Trump, when Donald Trump did something like killing Soleimani, the Iranian leader. I mean, I think everybody in the world went. Wow. He'll do something. And that, that increases the power of a threat, exponentially. If you've done something. So I don't think Biden has that right now.

Mark Levin: Israel Needs to Attack First When It Comes to Iran

"One of the reasons the Israelis won one of many The 1967 war because they went on attack Nasser was working with the other countries To economically choke off Israel they were preparing a military attack and Israel attacked first An Israel needs to attack first when it comes to Iran They can't wait for them to have a nuclear weapon So this administration is forcing Israel to decide between its own survival and the survival of its relationship with the current U.S. government Because that's the choice the Israelis have to make now Are they going to defend themselves against what is I don't like this word existential because 98% of Democrats don't know what it means Survival Whether it's going to survive because Iran has said it wants to destroy Israel And with nuclear weapons it can do that Or or well its relationships with the United States government survive And it's going to have to choose the former but that is the position that the Biden administration the Biden Secretary of State the Biden national security adviser have placed the State of

Energy Secretary Doesn't Know How Much Energy Americans Need

"Biden authorized the President Biden authorized the use of the strategic oil reserve yesterday to combat U.S. gasoline prices. It's a fade. It's a fake. Three 50 million barrels of oil sounds like a lot. The strategic oil reserve is for dire national security emergencies. Donald Trump filled it up to the brim, and President Biden had taken up 50 million barrels to make a gesture. It may have a little tiny impact on three days of gas. Three days of gas prices. That's what it is. No other nations are Tapping into their oil reserves and a collective effort to bring it down, not going to work. The kind of amount of oil we consume in the world is one of those pieces of data that nobody really knows. It's so astonishing, high. Except maybe the secretary of the energy, right? The energy will know. How much oil we can. Let's go to her number two energy secretary Jennifer grant on The White House press yesterday. How much oil do we consume? Do you know how many barrels of oil does the U.S. consume per day? I don't have that number in front of me. Some suggest it's about 18 million, which would suggest your releasing less than three days worth of supply from the petroleum reserve. Why is that enough? It isn't enough. Not knowing, by the way, not knowing how many barrels of oil, the United States consumes every day. Why in the world would we believe the secretary grant on those?

Get to Know Former U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert Wilkie

"For those who are not familiar with your service in the Trump administration, your background. In multiple uniform services, rising to under Secretary of Defense, tell our millions of listers and viewers across the nation a little bit about your background where you came from and how you got to do what you do. Well, it's a very simple. I am the son grandson, great grandson of combat soldiers. I spent my youth at fort sill fort Bragg, and also, as you know, at the royal school of artillery, in lark hill, England. My father was a senior officer in the 82nd airborne division when I was in high school. So my calling was to serve the nation in national defense. My military service has been modest compared to that of my ancestors, but I will say that a formative moment in my life was when the hostages were taken in Tehran. Two things. One, outside of fort Bragg on Bragg boulevard a place you know well, a massive billboard went up that said Iran let our people go. And I had to pass that billboard every day on the way to school and as I got older, I thought, that's what we had become. Under mister Carter, a mendicant, begging the theocratic fanatics and Tehran to let our soldiers and diplomats go. And then the second experience was in my neighborhood. The day the hostage rescue desert one collapsed. And the MPs closed off our neighborhood. They took the name signs off of our homes, and they surrounded colonel Charles beckwith's home. He was the commander on the ground. And president Carter came on that day. And said this was all my fault. I'm the one responsible. That's quite a contrast to what we had in Afghanistan a few months

What's Your Civic Responsibility to 'Stop the Steal'?

"Welcome back to one on one with hands once again of the heritage foundation. Hans, we have to look forward. We have to hope that the states do what is incumbent upon them to make fraud as hard as possible. What is what is the role of the individual who's concerned? My wife is a trained election officer. So, you know, she does her bet. Every day we get calls here at this show. I get DMs, I get texts from people who say, that's it. I'm done. I'm not voting again. I'm a conservative, but they stole it last time, and there's no point. Now I can say to them, oh really? Did they steal Virginia? So this isn't just job a job for you or for state secretaries. Everybody has a responsibility do they not? Oh, oh, yeah, they do. And look, one of the reasons Georgia passed an election reform bill was because of a group of grassroots activists, some of whom I know, they all got together and said, we gotta have Georgia fix some of the problems we saw in last year's election, and they started besieging. Their state legislators down there and the legislators got interested. And that resulted in that election reform Bill, getting past. Look, the other thing that folks ought to do, besides being a poll watcher, working in a polling place is this. What has started happening, especially I know you've covered this. What has started happening at school board meetings across the country. Parents have started showing up at these meetings that normally they're always open to public, nobody shows up. Right. But Dave started showing up and they've started asking questions about the critical race theory propaganda being taught to their kids. In the county governments that run elections across the country, they have county election boards, and their meetings are public meetings. I was on two, one county such county board in Georgia, one in Virginia, we would have public meetings and hardly anybody would show up. Start showing up at those county board meetings and start asking questions. Are they doing basic things like comparing their county, voter registration list to the states, DMV list? To find people who've moved. It's all need to be taken off the list to find checking with state vital records departments of how people who have died so you can take them off the list. Start asking questions. And if the folks on the county election board aren't doing their job, get them replaced. Or run yourself.

Why Is Washington, DC Suddenly Concerned About Borders?

"Is why all of a sudden is Washington, D.C. concerned about borders. If you want to get Washington, D.C. really fired up about borders. Don't talk about the southern border. Don't talk about the border between U.S. and Mexico. No, no, no, no. The border they get really fired up about? Is the Ukrainian Russian border. Now, let me be very clear. Vladimir Putin's a thug, okay? I'm not a Putin apologist. There are some people that do that. I think it's kind of weird. I'm not really into that. He's obviously kind of an autocrat. But am I kind of like wake am I spending time at night wondering or concerned whether or not Vladimir Putin is going to expand the Russian border by a hundred miles or not? I couldn't care less. But for whatever reason, there is this new campaign through Republicans to demand U.S. troops to go to Ukraine and defend Ukraine against Russian aggression. Secretary of State Anthony blinken said that he's a concerned about reports of unusual Russian military activity near Ukraine. He added, as we've made it clear any escalator escalatory or aggressive actions would be of great concern to the United States. Why? Why would that be of great concern? Again, I'm not like a Russian. I'm not like a Russia fan. But our own border is being compromised. Our own borders being invaded. Our country is being invaded. Why am I supposed to care about Ukraine again? What does that have to do with us? How is that an existential threat to our existence? And warning to Russia blink into the Biden administration, officials know its playbook, pointing to Ukraine's escalation in 2014 under the Obama administration. Although Russia's intentions are uncertain, the presence at the Russia's elite first guard tanks, an army lens credibility concerns that Russia is planning additional incursions into Ukraine territory. Republicans urged the administration to quote immediately consider an appropriate U.S. Military presence and posture in the region and to initiate appropriate intelligence sharing activities in the U.S. and Ukraine. Why are Republicans not calling for troops to go to the southern border? Why do we want American troops to go to the Ukrainian border, which might be a good cause? Find whatever. Stop Russian aggression I guess we're supposed to care about stuff like that. But our own borders being

"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..

There's little doubt about the intended audience because in the slender credit, , where'd you file of us? ? President Donald Trump remains his phone call shortly after his election to President Chang of Taiwan the first time the US president or indeed president-elect had spoken to the Taiwanese counterpart since nine hundred, , seventy, , nine, , president trump clearly understands that there is no more reliable way of winding. . Up China then embracing Taiwan, , which may be why he has now dispatched the highest ranking American envoy in decades kaethe crutch on the secretary of State for Economic Growth Energy and the environment, , a rank which seems calibrated to annoy China even more by making any overt rage on their part appears somewhat silly one joined with more on this by Isabel Hilton CEO of China. . Dialogue is a bill first of all the the visit of chief crash and I've allowed time for everybody to furiously Google is just trolling on America's part. . And Up to a point <hes> you you left often you know one elements in the winding up of list, , which is that he's there to attend the memorial service for former president of Taiwan, , Li dung-wei who has counted as the most hated Taiwanese in Beijing because leading Guay was the man who <hes> really lead Taiwan to democracy and was also an advocate of Taiwan as kind of independent cultural and political entity from China. . So he's really not very you know he's definitely not on the Christmas, , Card List for sheeting pin and to pay tribute to him is pretty certainly would be read in Beijing as a as a a further effort crime. . 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. . We've seen really since June kind of escalating provocation from China, , in sort of entering various kind of buffer zones which are pretty much being respected for decades you know around Taiwan that you can you can threatened and rattler cage but on the whole, , it's been recognized that if you if you cross certain. . Lines then you are risking at least an accident so. . I mean the the the problem was that you know. . In. . The last well, , just today actually eighteen Chinese bomas an and find the jets and Taiwan's advance buffer zone and that caused the cost Taiwan to scramble its jet. . You had a lot of very you know serious. . Flying around and I think that. . Is and that along with the naval exercises and and a great deal of rhetoric is probably as far as it will go. . But you know we have seen a prolonged campaign for the last three or four years of diplomatic isolation of kind of steady pressure on Taiwan from China, , and certainly this doesn't help. . 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? ? Largely. . Theatrical. . I wouldn't count on it being largely theatrical <hes>. . If you know we, , we've wh as you know, we , have a kind of dealing confrontation between the US and China and some alarming voices in Washington. . Are, , advocating, , for example, , the United States should supply nuclear weapons to Taiwan, , which would be <hes> pretty crazy move in my view. . But. . There is a commitment from the United States to supply to Taiwan such a defensive <hes>. . Capability as is required now, , it would be quite easy to argue that in a situation of enhanced tension <hes> greater <hes>, , a military supplies, , more more military supplies. . Packs more advanced military supplies were required and I would expect that to be part of the conversation I would also expect at least saying went to be exploring the idea of more formal cooperation between Taiwan and the United States last US official. . To visit, , which was relatively recently that produced an agreement on of collaboration on health I think timing when would very much like to see a free trade agreement with the United States. . So again, , I think this quite a lot to discuss an I would be surprised if this visit took place without some of them being on the table is anything really likely to shift in the near future though in any direction where this is concerned is everybody involved not basically biting their tongues and one hopes. . Metaphorically as well as literally holding their fire until election day in the United States and certainly hope so <hes>, , you know the the US position on Taiwan, , which is a it's a treaty obligation to <hes> to make sure that Taiwan can defend itself. . This doesn't actually commit the United States to coming to the defense of Taiwan, , but there is a kind of strategic ambiguity in in this treaty, , which is designed to stop Taiwan declaring independence and therefore provoking China to stop China assuming that were it to. . Stage a military salt. . The. . United. States . would stand by and and not come to the defense of Taiwan. . So the ambiguity in the US position is designed to keep both sides. . Calm. . Under a trump administration of calm is not a highly valued <hes> factor in Washington's calculations but I think. . That the hope would be in Washington that enough kind of chest bearing and beating. . We'll just keep everybody from doing anything too rash said, , he don't think that China would relish an armed conflict, , but on the other hand if the United States and Taiwan scenes to provocative in Beijing, , in order to satisfy, , it's increasingly nationalist domestic opinion and a PLA that seems fairly rested at the moment they might feel obliged to do something and as soon as you do something in a situation like this, , then <hes> your provoking something very, , very dangerous indeed

"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..

Regulations are the next step on curbing carbon pollution and that the president's leadership on this was critical and that is is a bipartisan issue related to that she talked about the carbon tax as being the number one preferred solution in an energy policy is quote the the most efficient way to address carbon pollution and provide incentives to repower the economy and I would say reinvigorate the economy as well the AH Russia situation regarding Ukraine and cutting off natural gas. She said it's a wakeup call to the west and to the Ukraine into the E._U..

"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?.

"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.
