Delta Joins List of Corporations to Ditch Degree Requirements
"The ongoing enrollment crisis at U.S. college and universities deepened in spring 22. Raising concerns that a fundamental shift is taking place in attitudes toward the value of a college degree. I think that it is. I do think it is and what would really make it clear is if more, look up the delta, I want to make sure it's not united. I think it's delta. I always like to get obviously things accurately. But I think more companies just need to say that. Now, clearly, if you're a mathematician, then a degree in math is probably necessary. Although, even there, I think they should test you for knowledge, not for a degree. What if one of you had a tutor on your own and saved hundreds of thousands of dollars. It's the old way of learning is with a tutor. It's probably the best possible way of learning, after all, didn't teachers unions tell us all of my life, small classes, small classes, can't get smaller than a tutor.

"Officer. Conveys the order to one of his soldiers. And as arc explained to me afterwards, he said, I didn't have the heart to take the flag down. I sent one of my nut up to do it. So the first moment of restraint happens at precisely the most ecstatic moment in 2000 years of Jewish history. At that very moment, Moshe dyan orders the Israeli flag to be taken down. Now there's one other story here that I love, which is connected. I'd mentioned earlier that the paratroopers did not go to the wall, they first broke through to the Temple Mount. So you have hundreds of soldiers on the temple bound. Many of them were religious and their standing on the holiest ground of Judaism. And yet, the first question the soldiers are asking is, where's the wall? Now think about that for a moment. It's so counterintuitive. If the wall has no intrinsic holdings and it's really all about the glory of the temple map, and this is the most glorious military moment. In Jewish history, I would argue. Why are you interested in the war that symbolized our humiliation? Our exile. And the paratroopers and moss leave the Temple Mount and go down to the wall and they throw themselves against the stones. This for me is the most touching moment of the war. Because what the paratroopers are saying here is, yes, we're the new Jews where the conquerors, we're the heroes, but this is the moment to pay homage to the Jews for 2000 years in exile, kept faith with this place. I'm curious what impact the reunification of Jerusalem had on the Jewish Diaspora, both here in North America, but elsewhere around the world. For example, in the Soviet Union, I mean, we're talking 1967 here when the Soviet jewry movement was just beginning to gain momentum. What was the impact? Well, this is one of my formative memories because I actually joined the Soviet Union movement in 1965. I was a kid. I was 12 years old. And I joined the student struggle for Soviet jewry, which had just been formed a year before. And the Jews of the Soviet Union were voiceless. They were living under totalitarian control, they were intimidated. This was not so long after Stalin. And the Six-Day War changed Jewish history, not only in the State of Israel, but in the Soviet Union in the Diaspora generally. The 6th day war triggered the emergence of the refuse next of the Jews, Soviet Jews, who did something that no one in the Soviet Union had ever done before, which is as a group challenged the authority of the Soviet regime. And the story of the liberation of Soviet jewelry begins with the 6 state war..
Kellyanne Conway on Her New Book 'Here's the Deal'
"Welcome back, America. Why am I playing blueberry hill for Kellyanne Conway, whose new memoir here is the deal is the bestseller everywhere in America. I hope you saw her in the view this week. I hope you are reading Kellyanne Conway's here. The deal. She's friends with Frank luntz as I am. So she knows the lunch rule that you've got to save the title of a book 7 times to make the book memorable. So I've said, here's the deal three times Kellyanne. Now I'm going to turn it over to you. I like Kellyanne one stuff. A lot more than Kellyanne two stuff, 'cause I didn't know much of Kellyanne. One stuff, but it's all there and here's the deal. Congratulations. Oh, thank you so much, Hugh. It's been a labor of love to write this memoir. Even though I'm 55, hopefully I have decades of life ahead of me. People are always asking me about the story behind the story. And I think in many ways I've had unique opportunities, crazy wild dramas and traumas, but it's really just everybody's American Dream story raised by a single mom very modestly for Italian women in the household never a political conversation I can recall, but raised to be a conservative because they were all hardworking small business owners believed in faith and family and freedom. We had military and veterans in our family union members in our family, obviously. So it's been a great journey. And you've been a part of that. We started on this radio show in 2000. My goodness, and you would have me on for a weekly segment on polling, which I think is still the grossly misunderstood. Oh, well, that was.

"Is in the most wonderful burgundy suit I've ever seen in my life with the checkerboard tie. Kansas City needs some good vibes. They're fighting their clan. Tooth and nail. They're through to the quarterfinals, baby. So I'm gonna make a second point and correction after my title. I actually feel vindicated in that if Kansas City was gonna be in any way successful, it's your Johnny Russell, would have been MVP 'cause they are bad and he's still definitely the MVP of the team and he is carrying them to different heights. I don't think it's unreasonable to say they could win this competition. With the home atmosphere that they have as Charlie said, their success there, they've got union Omaha in the next game, and then they're into a semifinal. They are a club that has experience in big knockout games. They are a club that has, I think, an environment and a culture that champions open cup where they've obviously won it before we've been there for them to win it before. And if they do that, it's just going to be Johnny Russell at this point. Like it's him dragging them there and he is good enough to do it. There are not a ton of players in this country that are good enough to do that for their teams. They can play well. Johnny Russell is good enough to overcome whatever it is that they end up facing by himself and I think that's a credit to him and as miserable as this season is that sort of, I guess the silver lining of it is like him getting the do and the respect that he has sort of deserved for a while. I will say phone test back in the starting lineup. Or he will sell with Remy Voltaire, cam duke and the team as well, not at full back. I thought it was the most cover that could provide in some of those positions. It's still was a little gappy at times, especially in the first half, but they had enough to get over this hump. They beat FC Dallas already in this competition. They veka teams already. There's obviously every reason to believe they could beat union Omaha, and then you're in a semifinal. Semifinal would be against the winner of the galaxy Sacramento if that's a big if for MLS teams facing union Omaha, sporting Kansas City can get through. Just a little history lesson for those of you who don't know. I don't know if you guys saw the old macabi Los Angeles guys that were in LA for that el tropico U.S. open cup match. That was super cool. The record is 5 titles. Bethlem steel and macabi Los Angeles both have that. And then it's four. Fire have four Fall River marksmen have four Greek American AA Philadelphia Ukrainians, Seattle sounders, and sporting Kansas City. So sporting Kansas City have an opportunity in this competition to move up into that 5 title range. It's three games, very possible, as you said, we were there, I believe, for their last title when they beat the Red Bulls. Jesse marsh has Red Bulls, by the way. And I got the dance with latif blessing and it was just an absolute blast. So we'll see how that goes. Here's something that I don't think we've talked about when we probably should be talking about.
The U.S. Wouldn't Exist Without the Great Awakening
"And I think it's important for us to know our history and to know these histories of revival that these things have happened in the past. And the United States of America would not exist if it hadn't been for the first great awakening. It was an amazing thing where thousands and thousands and thousands of people up and down the 13 colonies became born again and understand we can govern ourselves. We don't need a big government. I mean, all these things follow and I really do think you're right that we're living in a season right now. We're seeing earthquakes in the heavenly. We're seeing things happen. The overturning of roe V wade, it's kind of like the fall of the Soviet Union. People would dream, never dream that it's ever going to go away. It's been decades and the lord hears the prayers of his saints. It will go away and the enemy will scream louder because this is like a sacrament for the secular left. They don't really know what it is that they talk about these platitudes about women's rights and reproductive rights. It's something very, very dark. It's harmed women more than anything. And I do think that you're right, we're seeing things I think we're going to see election transparency. Because people are waking up, they're getting serious. And they're saying, we need to get involved in politics. We need to get involved in our local elections. We need to get involved in everything because we've taken our eyes off the ball and the enemy has come in like a flood, but the spirit of the lord is raising up a standard against

"You're talking about Canadian classic? I'm in all day for that. Also, he left, no, he came back to York. Yeah. Okay. He's in Ukraine. Oh, yeah, okay. I knew it was I knew it was somewhere. He also has multiple sons that play. He's got one who's on the U 20s as well. A goalkeeper. Wow. In the clan, that sounds. That's an interesting one. All right, Canadian championship, a good midweek slate there, excuse me. U.S. open cup round of 16 results, we have our quarterfinal set that are 18s, remaining, got some great matchups in the quarterfinals. And let's see about the second week of June, I think, is when those come up. New York Red Bulls, New York City F June 21st and 22nd. Very luck to me. Third week of June. I was thinking 11th and 12. I got you. I got you. That's why we're a team. Exactly. Red Bull's New York City in the quarterfinals. Hudson River Darby, that ought to be awesome. If we had a couple in state rivalries in an in city rivalry as well in the round of 16 Orlando city move on, they beat inter Miami Nashville await, they knocked off late with the comeback, Louisville city. So that was a big one. Louisville had a one zero lead, but couldn't hold on honey muktar at the late goal. Sporting Kansas City move on against the dynamo, they will, I believe, host union Omaha, who are the last USL League One team remaining. This is an amazing run to the quarterfinals for you to Omaha to MLS teams. They've knocked off now. The fire as well as Minnesota. I got taken down. I come back, victory for you and Omaha. LA galaxy and Sacramento republic in the other one. So that's a good sort of in state matchup as well. Let's start with the cup sets. Actually, let's start with this. Bruce arena, as I sort of joked about. He's like, nah, man, come on, let's go, let's play a Yankee Stadium. We need to play a belson, which is, that is, that can't happen, Dave. We need to be a belson. We need to be at montclair. We need to be in the little band boxes. Packed up. Different atmospheres, different feels, it's U.S. open cup time. What stadium would you have liked to be at last night's starfire Andre says predictably in the comments here, which stadium would you like, I give you I give you a stipend and there's a plane ticket. There's a hotel room, and there's, you know, given what we did in Seattle, there's like, you know, three grand for you to spend about 1500 has to be earmarked for beers for gone? So this is actually tough for me because I was accessible to two of the games. And it felt like I wanted to take in all the games rather than go to one. If I had, but through over the course of the night, I had fomo. I think it would have been Sacramento. Like it felt electric, it felt like a game they've been waiting for for a while. Obviously, the proximity of the two fan bases, but not el trafficker, where they will play in MLS. So that I think would have been the one that I wish that I had had a magic ticket to go to. The stand behind one of those goals that looks like it just rises and rises and rises..
Indiana Lawmakers Override Transgender Sports Veto
"Indiana overrides the veto and bans transgender girls from playing on school athletic teams Republican lawmakers in Indiana joined more than a dozen states in voting to ban transgender girls from competing in girls school sports On a mostly party line vote first the state House then the Senate voted to override a veto by governor Eric holcomb who had said the bill didn't provide for fairness in kindergarten through 12th grade sports opponents say it's a non issue being used as a political wedge supporters say the ban is needed to protect the integrity of competition The American civil liberties union describing the law as hateful in a violation of title 9 and the constitution immediately

"It's the work people have put in and the game's grown and so I think that was just a really cool moment for a lot of people like Stephen Hart, former Canadian national team manager. He's managing that game for Halifax. So they got that win. York got through on the road against specific, which was a huge shock. So now they'll face off York will against Vancouver. And Vancouver down that goal, as you said, they get a goal in the 86th minute off a corner kick, which sends them straight to penalty kicks, Cody cropper makes the huge save, 'cause obviously told us all still out. And they were able to gut through and it felt like a big moment. Like vanity sartini is running around hugging people after the game, the postgame press conference. You know, he's saying how big a moment it was, how big a win it is, how much it means to them, how much it can mean to the club, chance to qualify for Champions League to host a final potentially. For a team struggling, I think we'll talk about that with open cup. That was a huge moment. I don't think it can be a huge moment if the teams you're playing against aren't built up the way they are. And cavalry's done one of the best jobs of establishing themselves, taking themselves seriously, building a great home atmosphere. So that was really cool. And then Ford's kind of got annihilated in Montreal. Senussi Ibrahim with hat trick. That was like the big surprise maybe of the round, but it was awesome. It was, I think, we all sort of set it in the meeting about open cup. It feels different this year. Obviously, COVID, I think, has affected that of finally fans are back and we can sort of travel and experience these. But I just think the game is growing and it's growing at the top level, but it's growing alongside that and for these teams to get the challenge themselves in these big moments are real benchmarks. Look, CCL spot at stake in Canadian championship as well. Charlie, yeah, look, it's well established. I get it. You don't care, not a thing that you not devoting energy or effort to it, but I want to know from your perspective, who would you want to see when the Canadian championship just from an MLS side of it, of course, you know, CPL, we're not like trying to slander, you hear CPL. I know you want it too. But from an MLS perspective, when it comes to seeing that team in CCO, meaning what it would mean to them in the current state of their season, who would you want to win this? Given the roster, Montreal impact. Just because of CCL implications. Club day food Montreal. Yes, yes. We all understood. I caught it..
Mo Brooks: We Have the Ground Game but Need Financial Support
"So tell us what's going on on the ground in Alabama my friend Well we're getting blistered with the financial advantage that Mike Durant and Katie Britt have Katie bread is soaking up the money from the Mitch McConnell establishment wing of the party added to that are the special interest groups and as much as 5 the last 7 years That's been a profession registered lobbyist And in particular she's getting money from the open borders chief foreign labor crowd that loves to profit off of the hardship of hardworking Americans who don't want to have to compete against this chief foreign labor So that's pretty much the setup Mike Durant probably the closest analogy I could give to what he would be like in the United States Senate would be John McCain John McCain is the last time that Mike Durant voted in a Republican primary back in 2008 and he was a surrogate for John McCain around the country And that's why I mentioned him as a lookalike for the Mike Durant campaign effort So both of them have tons of money Mike grant He's a successful businessman to his credit He's put in 10 million of his own but he's also been recruited and supported by The Lincoln Project doing business as more perfect union in Alabama doing business as the element of patriots pact Jake harriman of those organizations pledged Mike Durant $15 million if he would get into the race That's a lot of money in a state like Alabama We have the ground game We had the support of almost every single conservative organization at least everyone I know of But unfortunately Mark as you well know
Larry Elder on His Experience Running for Governor of California
"Larry elder, you ran for governor of California, I want you to walk us through that experience. You know, I feel like if you were the most qualified person, California would have been so blessed to have you to run that state to get that state back in order, but you received a lot of backlash. You know, from the haters from the leftists, Kyle, you were a black white supremacist or something of that nature. Can you explain to the audience just a little bit? What was your experience and will you be interested in running again for something a greater position? Well, I think a lot of voters now have voted for Morris Brandon. I think a lot of people now wish they voted for me because since then the crime has gone up, the homelessness has gotten worse. The rate at which people are leaving California has picked up the schools haven't gotten any better. So I think a whole lot of people now regret that they didn't vote for me.
Do Black People Need More Equality or Equity?
"I had a college song a minute ago named James and he said that one of the biggest issues that we're facing in the United States of America is to defeat Russia and the second most dying dire issue is equality in this country. And I could not disagree with him more because there's a difference between equality and equity. I think he meant he wanted more equity in this country and I feel like that equality is already accomplished. You have an equal opportunity to do your best. You can't control if your parents were drug dealers or drug users, you can't control if you were born into poverty, but you can't control what you do every single day, 24 hours in a day that you get, you can control if you're making positive decisions in that day, are you making negative decisions in a day?
What Is the State of Interracial Marriage?
"I was talking about this in my last segment and people, you know, people who have mixed emotions about this. So LeBron James, his son, took a white girl to prom, LeBron James took a white girl to the prom, but the thought process is that what do you think about interracial marriages? Do you think interracial marriages are something that is because of race or do you think it's because of culture? What's your thoughts Larry? I don't really put a whole lot of thought into it. I think people choose people based upon whether or not they feel compatible, whether or not they feel that they have the same kind of values they have. And today in our society, I don't think anybody cares. I'm in California and I make one in every 5 marriage in California is considered to be an interracial marriage. They are increasing. So I don't think anybody cares. Now the LeBron James was interesting to me because Brandon, when I look at some of the comments, many of them were vicious comments that came apparently from black people. Now, you don't know who wrote them, could be somebody sitting in their shorts. In their basement, welcome to blunt. So it's hard to say exactly who wrote what, but some of the stuff appeared to come from black people.
Christian School Under Fire for Promoting Christian Values
"I want to switch gears real quick and talk about this Christian school under fire for upholding Christian values. Now you may ask me, Brennan, what in the world is happening at this Christian school that will make them be under fire and how does that relate to Christian values? So according to the Louisville, carrier journal says a homework assignment given to several middle schoolers at Christian academy of Louisville encouraged students to pursue an imaginary friend to reject or persuade imaginary friend to reject homosexuality. Now, you know in the woke of the woke culture that we live in, people to be mad at that. Now hiding the world at a Christian school, you're going to be mad at that. It literally says in a Bible that homosexuality is a sin. So why is it so weird and difficult in a Christian school for you to understand that that may be a hypothetical situation that kids will be able to or should be able to defend their faith in?
San Francisco Archbishop Bars Pelosi From Holy Communion
"Ladies and gentlemen, I want to start with Nancy Pelosi. I know there's a lot of Christians that listen to the show. So I want to start with Nancy Pelosi and say that that archbishop was 100% right. There's no way in the world that you should be taking communion and you believe in murder and young children. The Bible speaks very clearly that God knew you before you answered the womb. You belong to God, you don't belong to your mama. Your mama is just a vessel in which you pass through. In the spirit, in which you pass through, so God can, you know, control and elevate you in your life and you have a purpose singular from anybody else. Nothing against mamas because that's a hard job and that's why women are blessed. Because they have to carry children and create them and God has given authority to women to do that. But Nancy Pelosi should not be taking communion any one of these people who are claiming to be Christian claiming to be Catholic and they're pushing abortion. You are absolutely wrong.
The Brutal Power of Teachers' Unions With Corey DeAngelis
"Talk to us about the role of the unions, how they behave, how they intimidate and also give us a fair picture of the teachers, not all of them want to be pro BLM neo marxists today. Yeah, you can be pro teacher and be anti teachers unions because the teachers union bosses like Randy weingarten often don't push for policies that benefit the great teachers that already exist in the public school and private school classrooms. You have Randy weingarten making over 9 times the average teacher salary in the U.S.. Right, because teachers about 50 grand. Yeah, 50 60 grand on average. Over 500. Owned $570,000. And if you look just at the trends over time, I mean, you've got to look at the data since 1970, per people education expenditures in the United States after adjusting for inflation increased by about a 152% in the U.S.. But average teacher salaries only increased by about 8% in real terms. So we're throwing more and more money into the system. It's going to the superintendents and administrative votes. They're associate deans of diversity in blah, blah, blah, right? And so that's good for teachers union bosses like Randy weingarten because that means more dues paying members. If you just paid the teachers better, especially the ones that are doing a good job, well, you don't get an additional dues paying member. And so that means less money for the teachers that are doing a good job, more money for the union bosses and union leadership. Another report by Ben schaffer at kennesaw state university looked between the years of 1992 and 2014 similarly finding nationwide an increase in about 27 per people education expenditures in real terms, whereas teacher salaries over that period actually dropped by 2% after adjusting for inflation. So again, he said the same thing that there's a staffing surge, they're putting more people into the buildings. We saw this with COVID as well. The latest budget numbers I've seen with Los Angeles public schools, they were planning to increase their perpetual education expenditures over the past couple of years by about 69%,
Catherine Glenn Foster Shuts Down Jamie Raskin on Abortion
"Catherine Glenn foster was a witness at a hearing yesterday on Capitol Hill in the house They had a hearing on their abortion bill Or the abortion bills being proposed And Jamie Raskin whose father was famously a red we connections or beliefs tied to the old Soviet Union is a big Democrat now out of Maryland because it's hard to tell a difference between The New York Times as Walter Durant and The New York Times has Jamie Raskin who they love Congressman So the Republicans have their witness Catherine Glen foster and listen to this because she shuts this guy down and he doesn't know where to go Cut four go Is candidly and openly calling for a nationwide ban on all abortions with no exceptions for rape or incest And if I've got that wrong I would invite miss foster to correct me Do I have a wrong yes or no If we added Raven and exceptions would you vote for it Okay I reclaim my time Of course Well she asked you a question And the answer is no

'2000 Mules' Has Blown Up... And It's Making Fox News Look Horrible
"My documentary 2000 mules has broken out into the political and cultural mainstream. It's now become kind of unstoppable. In fact, today, at the European Union, a group, I think there are Dutch members of parliament. They have announced a screening of the movie followed by a discussion of the worldwide worldwide problem of election fraud. Yesterday, The Washington Post published a in depth and I mean in depth conversation a Q&A, it was kind of a feisty conversation. It involves actually a guy who's kind of obsessed with this issue. Philip bump, the national correspondent for The Washington Post. He's written like 6 articles about it. And he finally, well, I invited him to do a debate, and he said, well, I don't know about a debate, but maybe we can do a point counterpoint in exchange in The Washington Post. We talked for about an hour on Monday and I didn't expect him to publish the whole conversation, but he did. And it's awesome. I mean, when I printed it out, 23 pages long, so it's thousands of words. And as I was reading it, I was obviously focusing on the content. To be honest, I think he kind of got me, but that's not the reality. You could read and figure it out for yourself. Tomorrow, by the way, I'm going to do an in depth and discussion of that article and some of the other so called refutations. Of the movie. But as I was reading it, I was thinking to myself, you know, here is a movie that's being discussed, AD nauseam in The Washington Post, and yet it has not been mentioned on Fox News. So I think all of this is starting to, well, it's making Fox News look
Politico: FDA, Abbott Reach Deal to Reopen Shuttered Infant Formula Plant
"Baby formula it's amazing isn't it Politico FDA and Abbott reached deal to reopen shuttered form you plant Biden administration also released plans to ease strict import rules on infant formula from overseas amid shortages So we talked about this the other day right That they won't allow formula in the country from the European Union which actually in some respects has stricter requirements than here in the United States And that the FDA had its foot on the throat of Abbott and wouldn't let them really effectively produce more infant formula even though an investigation determined that four toddlers who got ill to who died that it had nothing to do with Abbott And their production facilities Now luck how easily this was fixed Or is being fixed it's still going to take weeks but you get my point First Biden says he's not a mind reader and first of all you have to have a mind to read But that said we talked about these two issues before Let ab produce let average produce an import infant formula from Europe
93: Find What Tickles the Soul - burst 03
"I think a lot of I think a lot of the, you know, at a certain point, I think we reach a place where, you know, listen, I don't need any more character. Life can take it easy on me now. And so I think I had a lot of the grit again just rural Tennessee and especially rural Tennessee where I was, I mean, I wasn't in the absolute deep, deep, deep, deep, deep Woods, but in the 70s and Tennessee where I was out by Hendersonville and gallatin, not like it is today. There was not a whole lot around. So I had quite a bit of what we would call character building and grid just growing up in a single parent home. By the time I got to Los Angeles, the LA part was just trying to build a career in an exceedingly difficult profession where I didn't have I didn't have any nepotism. I didn't have anything, I didn't show up here with anything on my side for lack of a better phrase. Yeah. Well, national was a totally different city back then in the 70s than it is now. I mean now it's the home and hard of a lot of productions, both movies and radio and television. That was not happening way back then in the same way. Now it's Nash Vegas. First of all, it's the number one bachelorette weekend destination in the south. It's number one, even more so than Atlanta. And number two, I mean, yeah, my mother was a country singer, but there's a very famous train station Alan in Nashville called union station that actually country songs have been written about it. It's beautiful. They refurbished it. When I was in high school, it was boarded up in dilapidated. So yeah, you didn't go past, you didn't go past 20th or 21st street towards first street to downtown. When I was a kid or you were looking for trouble and that would be just past Vanderbilt. So it's a very different city now, yes. Yeah. As I say right now, I mean to Nashville and there are many areas that you would stay out of. I mean, it's a totally grown up city and it's safe. It's prosperous. It's really become uptown. Whereas it used to be a hole to begin with. You are correct. There were distinctly places you did not go. That is correct. And now it is. It's just, it's just blown up in the last 15, 20 years. Unbelievable. Yeah. For sure. So do you remember any stories along the way that you can tell the audience? About that journey? Several of them depends on which ones we can allow on air. No, I think we, when we tend to use the word journey, doctor leica, we, a lot of times, as a country that we're very result oriented and I respectfully understand that certainly as an athlete, your result oriented, taking tests where result oriented, and so when we look at journeys, sometimes we wind up just looking at the end of like, oh my gosh, that person is so and so they've gotten to it doesn't matter what industry it is. And so when I tend to look at some of those years, I tend to look back at some of the moments when I should have looked at myself and gone, what the hell are you doing? And one of the key ones for me would have been what I chose to go to Atlanta for two years. I won an event in New York. And I could have gone to New York, but similarly, New York back then, Manhattan back then is not the Manhattan you see today. I mean, people who have not seen Times Square from a perspective of the early 80s to where it is today, Times Square was a place after one or 2 o'clock in the morning, you would just get killed. And so I had been there and for this event and as a guy who grew up in the rural south and who also was a golfer, I didn't really see myself hanging out in Manhattan trying to haul my sticks on the subway somewhere to go play golf. So I chose Atlanta, but I also went to Atlanta with a very old car, $200 in my pocket, and the only person that knew I was coming was the gal who was to be my agent. So I had to I slept in my car for three days in this abandoned Sears parking lot. That is in really upscale Buckhead at the time. It was just this big abandoned building. And it was kind of downhill and there was behind the building thing and I thought, oh, that seems safe. And I literally slept in my car for three days, and then my agent had a client that was in the catering business. And she had a couple of kids that they had moved out. She was an empty nester. And she was kind of a whack a doodle. She might have been kind of a functioning alcoholic. She was funny. And she didn't live that far down peachtree. And I rented a room from her for $50 a week. For about 6 or 7 months and then one of her neighbors was a lawyer and he knew somebody who worked at this really fancy restaurant downtown and he helped get me a job. And once I had a job for 6 or 7 months, I had enough money to finally move out and get my own place. So that's the beginning of a journey right there. That is the beginning of a journey and how did you get motivated? A lot of things were stacked against you. You know, a lot of things, you know how many actors try and never meet their dreams. How did you stay motivated during that process? You know, that becomes the intriguing part about that question for me, which ironically, I've asked a number of people on my own myself. Is we get into the we go the direction in my opinion of nature versus nurture. And I'm someone who believes, I don't think that it's 50 50 personally as a guy who was almost a psychology double major. I do believe we're a little more nurture than we are in nature personally. I think our environment of how we grow up has a little bit longer lasting effect on us and maybe the nature part of us remains a little more a little more hidden, but not always. I think that the way I grew up with just a sister and a mother who was not home very much and was sort of a latchkey kid who learned a lot on his own and had to grow up pretty fast. I think there was just a nurtured part of me that quitting wasn't really in my vocabulary. I don't know if you want to put words to something like that such as stubborn or cocky or defiant or I don't know. It doesn't much really matter. Even just going to the event that I went to in New York that I won, we didn't have any money for me to go to that. I literally had to go around and raise the money to be able to even go on that trip and when I wanted and that's a trophy that sits right
What Did Robert Hanssen Get Out of Being An Evil Russian Spy?
"We are talking to Lee's wheel. You probably know her. Remember her from Fox News and many other prominent places talking about many things kind of like this, but nothing can top this. She has a brand new book out called a spy in plain sight. The inside story of the FBI and Robert Hansen, America's most damaging Russian spy. It really is nightmarish. And I always say, Lee's that, you know, apart from my faith in God, I don't know how to process this. I think you would just be frightened at how evil the world is, how dark it is. I have to ask you the most basic question. What do you suppose that Robert Hansen got out of this? In other words, it's kind of a funny thing. I always feel that these traders sell themselves extraordinarily cheaply, you know, that China has billions of dollars to spend. And if there's anybody out there willing to kind of give them a leg up here or there, what was Russia giving this man? And again, we want to be clear. This wasn't Russia. This was the Soviet Union, as wicked as it gets. The evil empire, what were they giving him to make him feel that it was worth his doing this because he could have made a decent job doing the right thing. What were they giving him? Right, exactly. Cash. I mean, they were giving him bundles of $30,000, $10,000, $50,000. At one point he asked for diamonds, they gave him diamonds. And he had a cash flow problem, right? Because you can't put more than $10,000 in cash into a bank without alerting all sorts of things. So he would just honestly put it in a drawer. He put it under the bed. And in fact, Eric, one time when he had the cash in the drawer, Bonnie, his wife, saw the money in the drawer. It was like a sock drawer or something, you know, basic drawer like that. She pulled out the money, sees all this cash. She confronts him. This was early on in his spine, confronts him. She thinks it's money for a mistress because he's got he's done that before. Say that again, money from what? We're a mistress from mister. Oh, because he had cheated on his wife. Right. So she thinks that she confronts him. He says, oh, no, no, Bonnie. I'm not cheating on you. This is just money that I got from the Russians for spying. That was better or something. But he did say that to him. Yes, no, he admitted it to her. And then they, but here Eric, here's a twist. It go to their priests. That's what body his wife wants to do. They go to the priest, the priest basically says, oh, that was bad. Don't do that again. It's fine, that is. And you can be absolved from it if you just give them money that you've already made to the church. Which Hanson does, and he doesn't spy for a little bit, and then he starts up again. But the idea that a priest would say that, that basically, hey, you know, don't do that again, that's bad, but you know, it's all okay if you give the money to the church. And that, of course, you know, Bonnie was okay with
Lis Wiehl Shares the Intriguing Tale of 'A Spy in Plain Sight'
"We have a really exciting guest talking about a very exciting book and subject, exciting, depressing, amazing. I don't know where to begin. You probably already know my guest. Lee's wheel, maybe you saw her over the years on Fox News or on CNN or any place just a prominent legal mind federal prosecutor on and on and on. It goes, and she has now written a book. I got to tell you, it's nothing less than shocking. It's titled a spy in plain sight. The inside story of the FBI and Robert Hanssen, America's most damaging Russian spy, remember the Cold War folks. Remember when we were at war with the Soviet Union, they were a superpower in those days. And there was somebody on the inside. It just, it's one of the most amazing stories ever. A number of books have been written about it. This is being called the best of them all, a spy in plain sight Lee's wheel. Welcome to the program. Eric, it's great to be with you. Thanks so much for that kind introduction. Well, I tell you, when I read originally about Robert Hansen, it was one of these things, it's out of a movie. It's a nightmare that somebody would be this deeply embedded in our FBI working for our enemies. Today it would be, you know, working for China. But give us the background for people who don't remember the details, the timing, the years, the decades, so that we have some sense of who this monster Robert Hansen was. Yeah, and you've got it right. He really is a monster. I mean, finally, he's locked up now forever. So he's in a 24 hour or 23 hour solitary confinement and Florence Colorado in a supermarket, a super max. But started, you know, kind of an unremarkable upbringing. He was a middle class in Chicago, his father was a cop, kind of trying to tough on him. I mean, really tough on him. We'd call it child abuse now. But he grew up, became an accountant and then joined the FBI, which was really the Pinnacle for him. You know, it was just the thing that he wanted to be. He admired James Bond. He wanted to be everything, James Bond. So the enters in the early 80s into the bureau. And Eric within a year of entering the FBI, he approaches the Russians. They don't have to flip him. He approaches them. He doesn't tell them who he is, but he says he has this great Intel information for them. And indeed, it is the first thing that he's gives them is the identity of our major the primo Russian asset that we had at the time on the ground. And of course, we rely on those people to give us information from you said it, China, North Korea, Russia. He was at the very top level of the counter espionage unit in the

Are You satisfied with the trump administration's response? ? Well we always have great cooperation with our federal agencies and I want to thank them for that because they do step up whether it's corona virus or whether it's fires but I think leadership at the very top needs to be earlier stronger and from the President I wish that we would get as much attention not based on an electoral map but just. . Purely on being Americans and the need for leadership to be <hes> from the white. . House for all of America <hes>. . You know whether it's twin hurricanes on the Gulf coast or fires here on the West Coast we're one nation and sometimes <hes> looking at the leadership that comes out. It's . easy to forget that it's taken three weeks I'm glad he's coming <hes> but. We . need much more help when we have firefighters dying on the line and Washington refuses to help states and refuses to help local governments that are the first responders to emergencies like this. . It's unconscionable. . So instead of hitting the golf course going on vacation the president, the , Congress respectively should sit down this week and finally make sure that there is assistance for. . These brave men and women who are protecting our lives and protecting our property well to be clear. . What exactly are you saying? ? President trump in your view would have done differently of California were say a republican state like Louisiana A or other states in the Gulf, , Texas what what what would have done differently because he did sure Clare Disaster <hes> three weeks ago. . Absolutely and I always say that that's very important that those agencies respond. . We get good coordination but there's a refusal to blaming of blue states over red states in his mind I remind people there's a million Republicans that live here in the city of Los Angeles even if you're a partisan, , you should be stepping up with empathy you should be stepping up with helping with a new cares act when people are slashing local government and state government laying people off this is bad for our economy. . This is bad for our emergency response. . It's terrible for our corona virus response, , and so we need leadership that is equal across this country instead of being partisan and divisive, , and it's very clear. . This president seems to divide more. . He's going to come out here and probably tell us I gonNA send you rakes instead of more help we need actual help material help not based on our party affiliation or how we voted leadership isn't about grudges. . It's about governing for all. . Well, , let's talk about that because. . Of Atta Rally last night president trump repeatedly told his supporters that containing the wildfires is all about forest management in. . As you note, , he's frequently criticised California for failing to rake the forest floors <hes> to prevent wildfires <hes>. . What's your response? ? What are the facts behind this? ? Well I listen to fire professionals <hes> not the president of the United States are politician when it comes to actually what causes these fires <hes>? ? It's been very clear that years of drought seeing whether it's too much water and too much rain in parts of our country right now or too little. . This is climate change and this is an administration that's put its head in the sand while we have democratic and Republican mayors across the. .

"But at at the time that he had those positions that was not out of the mainstream of the Democratic Party so much going on this week. And obviously, the Democrats had to confront the comments made by a congresswoman Ilhan, Omar, I want you to listen to how President Trump and. House speaker Pelosi framed the issue of Ilhan, Omar and her controversial comments. The Democrats have become an anti Israel party. They become an anti Jewish party. I don't think it. Let her down innocent medic language it. Oh, I think it's strengthened isn't about anybody. Who hates anybody? It's about people act upon their hatred. She's talking about the resolution against hey, we only have about ninety seconds. I want to get you to this. What do you think? I think the Democrats spent all week stepping on rakes on this issue watching them try to get their arms around this now for the second time. It's really tragic speaker Pelosi said she had a different experience with words than the reservoir guess truth since most of us don't use any semitic words on a regular basis. I think the Democrats have absolutely fumbled this issue. They have failed on this issue. And I sit out here and get fog whenever Donald Trump messes up on these issues, and he does. And now, the Democrats are absolutely failing after flogging Donald Trump for two years. It is a disgrace should not have the time allegiance. And I think she is feeling the brunt of that right now. But a Jess that she has antisemitic. I think just isn't true. Now, Donald Trump folks who live in glass houses should not be throwing rocks, Jake, and that's all I have to say that we're a pro US Israel relationship party nothing about that's changed when we see comments like this. We're gonna call them out. But we also can address some of the issues where this Tuesday. Solution needs to happen there. We need to restore the aid that President Trump is taken away from Palestinians. But this week all of this was going on we pass an update to the Voting Rights Act in last week. We passed background checks. So we're still doing work, and we're not going to be distracted by this not being able to speak out clearly against anti-semitism. Almost sixty percent of the hate crimes on the basis of religion were against Jews last year and those crimes are up by thirty seven percent. The Democrats should have been able to speak clearly and resolutely about anti-semitism. Thanks so much for being here.

We are live at the south by southwest festival. Where tonight we will we will be moderating town halls with three democratic presidential candidates now much of the democratic field is here as almost part of the field, Texas native Beto award who dodged questions about his possible run yesterday one potential candidate not here. Vice president Joe Biden who still has yet to pull the trigger on a brand new CNN, Des Moines, Register poll of Iowa democratic voters shows Biden leading the pack right now with Senator Bernie Sanders close behind both men with substantial leads over the most diverse democratic field ever to run. And this key early moment in the race comes as the Democratic Party in the house, at least is showing some divisions prompted by freshman congresswoman's, Ilhan Omar's latest comments about supporters of Israel and a resolution forced by the Omar controversy condemning hate in the house that resolution those comments giving President Trump exactly what he wants to dissension in the democr-. Attic ranks with me now to discuss this and much much more is democratic presidential candidate from right here in Texas. Former HUD secretary Hooghly on Castro a secretary Castro. Thanks so much for being here. Appreciate it'd be with you. Good to be with you eligible handshake there. So let me start right there. With the comments from Ilhan, Omar she has previously accused Israel of quote hypnotize in the world. She has suggested that support for Israel, and congress is quote all about the Benjamins meaning all about campaign contributions. And then most recently, she criticized lawmakers who support Israel as potentially having a quote allegiance to a foreign country issued an anti Semite. Well, I was glad that she apologized. Yeah. I don't believe that that she's in her heart and anti-semites, but I do believe that those comments gave life to some old tropes by sees against Jews as having dual loyalties or somehow dominating industries or politics with money. And so I was glad that she apology. I'm also glad that that the house is condemning bigotry we've seen a rise in anti-semitism over the last couple of years. We've also seen a rise in, you know, anti Muslim hate and hate directed others. But yeah, I'm glad that she apologized. I I do think that you know, it's fair whether the country is Israel or a European country or Latin American country for people to criticize or to to pick apart the policy that the United States is taking toward that country. But it should be done. I think in a constructive way and not in a way that gives rise to two old tropes. So you suggested that you support the house resolution which condemned anti anti-semitism and other bigotry as well. There are Democrats who felt like that resolution was watered down by not focusing on anti-semitism and not focusing on congresswoman Omar's comments, congressman. Deutsche a democrat from Florida whose Jewish voiced that concern. Listen. Why are we unable to singularly condemn anti-semitism?.

"They're both co-sponsors of the Bernie Sanders Medicare for all let's discuss Akari fifty six percent of Americans favor Medicare for all. According to new Kaiser poll, but when you ask would you favor it if it eliminates private insurance companies as the Bernie Sanders Bill essentially does it drops to thirty seven percent. I think what you're going to see is throughout this process Democrats in their plans, and their ideas, and all of these proposals are going to be fleshed out and people are going to get to the root of it. But when what you saw this past week was you saw a slight difference of opinion because I think that Medicare for all is the standard in the Democratic Party now, but you have different ways in different candidates who want to get there. So I still favor, for example, making sure that we still have a healthy providence insurance industry in this country. But I do believe that we need to move towards a Medicare for all inlet let private insurance fill in those gaps. And I think that you have Kamla hairs. And Cory Booker who have sponsored bills throughout the whole plethora or the whole John or of that making sure that we get just an and if we just dropped the age limit for Medicare five years, I think we at least cover more people, and we can at least start to have those discussions. I want you to take a listen to the White House's comments this week about Cory Booker. They seem to have some had had some rather pointed criticism. Senator Cory Booker announced today that he's also running. There are a lot of Democrats on the good noches. No chance I say why because I know him. I don't think it is chance. I think quite book Booker often sounds like a hallmark card and not necessarily a person who's there to tell you everything he's accomplished in the United States Senate and his mayor of Newark, what's your take totally agree with the president. He has no chance. There's far more formidable candidates democratic this is a guy I mean watches performance during the cavenaugh hearing completely discredited himself. He has flip flopped on major issues over the years. He tends to say what the audience wants to hear. That's not what people are looking for. I don't think in either political party. These Democrats have smart strong candidates. I think Kamala Harris, comma, Harris. Didn't say Camille was good. And I also think she led the way in some ways on the north issue. I thought her cheap she needed to speak, and she did it. So she seems to be strong to meet Beto. I think is still lurking out there. Cory Booker is is is an interesting person. But he's not going to be the next. Do you think? Well, I thought the president's statement was less racist than other comments. He's made about black candidates kudos so kudos. That's a plus perhaps a nod to black history month frac like he didn't say he didn't say they were ignorant or not educated. What have you usually tends to do? I think Corey is someone if you've ever seen him on the campaign trail, he is very inspiring. And I think as with all these candidates that is why we have a primary process, right? Where you get to see how do they do can they flush out their ideas about health care about? How do we get to? If it's Medicare for all. Or if it is do you maintain you know, some firm of private insurance? How do we get there? And I think that what's going to be pas. Tive is that conversation. I actually think that Cory booker's problems. It's going to be within the Democratic Party. And it's going to relate to his job as mayor of Newark, I think he was terrific mayor of Newark, he supported choice for public school children in Newark. And he's going to have trouble with the teachers union, and it is very difficult to get the nomination. We've got the teachers unions on the other side Democrats were throwing a curveball this week with the possible entry at least a a testing for independent candidate Howard Schultz, the former CEO of Starbucks Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio is contemplating running for president. He hasn't denounced. But he does have some thoughts on Howard Schultz. Let's roll tape..

"Hello. I'm Jake tapper in Washington where the state of our union is shaking our heads, the Virginia governor democrat Ralph north is ignoring calls for his resignation by his fellow Democrats from the top to the bottom of his party demands. That only intensified after the governor bizarrely changed his explanation about that racist photo from his nineteen Eighty-four medical school yearbook page now north insists he's not in the photo, which depict someone in black face next to a person dressed in Ku Klux Klan roads. I finally had a chance to sit down and look at the photograph in detail. It is definitely not me. I can tell by looking at it. That was a total contradiction of what north I'm headed midday just hours before when he said he was quote deeply sorry for the decision. I made to appear as I did in this photo unquote, north did reveal yesterday, his vivid memory of wearing black face on a different occasion that year at a dance contest where he dressed as Michael Jackson and colored his face with shoe polish marking the first time in American political history that a politician attempted to explain his innocence regarding one racist black face incidents by pointing to another one that he recalled participating in north is now asking for the opportunity to earn Virginians forgiveness. Something the state's top Democrats, including both senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine former governors wilder and McAuliffe the current state attorney general and the entire state democratic caucus said was not.

In a pointed letter, he wrote to speaker Pelosi this week, President Trump all but dared her to uninvite him deliver a state of the union address in the house chamber Pelosi today, and on invited him Pelosi has made it very clear how she sees President Trump for out this confrontation. For his part. The president also made clear this week. How he pictures the most powerful woman in America. Super left Democrats, the radical Democrats what's going on in that party is shocking. The president had been thinking of alternate sites for the speech, perhaps he could have demonstrated the effectiveness of the wall or steel slants by delivering his speech while trying to climate. We don't use the word wall necessarily, but it has to be something special to do the job steel slats or instead of looking at the house chamber, maybe a sea of adoring supporters and ocean of maga- hats, they all love me. They all love me. One thing that definitely didn't help the president and the shutdown battle his Jillian air commerce secretary Wilbur Ross questioning why desperate federal workers were going to food banks. Don't really quite understand. Why maybe it was tough to understand from Wilbur Ross's point of view. Imagine finding out you're a triplet later in your life. That's the subject of a fascinating CNN film. When I tell people my story. But that's true. I've always thought what would it be like if you turn the corner one day and you saw yourself. While the first time the three together it was a miracle. Those nothing that can keep us apart. That's when things kinda got on. Something which is not right. I'd like to know the truth.

"No, one should ever underestimate the speaker as Donald Trump has learned a union Kate is power. And that is not maybe the president underestimated. Retinal Democrats taking victory laps after President Trump seemed to cave on the wall and ended the government shutdown at least for the next three weeks. Let's discuss secretary, Sean is is it true. Is it fair to say that Trump caved and Nancy Pelosi one? I think Nancy Pelosi did win. And I don't know that we're going to see that he actually ends up caving. I think he's still like to come back and do some sort of emergency order and get his wall. But he, you know, he underestimated her, and she proved that a mom knows how to handle a two year old brat. And that's the way the president of that. This is this is always the case with the media. They over blow everything to try to condemn Donald Trump. The reality is Donald Trump did what the media and everybody was asking including the ANSI Pelosi, which is give us an opportunity to negotiate and put people back to work. Everybody criticized Donald Trump for not for being recalcitrant, and they criticized him for actually saying, okay? I'll I'll take your deal. We'll give you a three week period of time. Now now the burdens on you to come forward with Donald Trump sat in that meeting and said as he did I will give you everything you want. If you give me how much funding we give me she said, not a penny. So it's up to Nancy Pelosi at this point to say, okay. I'll meet you somewhere because of her answer is no money for the wall. I don't care how much you give us which is what she told the president. Then I think it's going to be back with another shutdown or more likely an emergency declaration, Lou fate that the president started all of this in the first place. We wouldn't be here if he hadn't done this. And yes, the speaker showed herself more than capable of handling President Trump. But to me is not just about that. It really is about it should really be about eight hundred thousand workers, federal employees public servants. And also the contract workers who actually lost pay while people are playing political brinkmanship. So am I glad that the shutdown is over? Those folks for our neighbors, our friends our families, so they can they can pay their bills, absolutely Paul. Would it be worth it for Democrats? You think to give the in the next three weeks in this negotiation period to give the president some money for a wall fence, whatever you wanna call it and get some permanent protection for TPS holders, dreamers cetera. Yes, permanent is the key word that president is so ridiculous. He made an offer training shut down. I'll give temporary protection to the dreamers. If you give me a permanent. Well, now, if it's three years for the dreamer, you had a tear down your Wallin three years. It's preposterous. He did really amazing thing in this the president. And I wanna give them full credit. This is hard to do. He he United progressives. He he he L United moderates, and he betrayed conservatives. That's try fact, it's very hard in America to do all three at the same time. And he did it. So I'm forgetting congratulate. You also empowered Nancy Pelosi few months ago, we were talking about she even going to be elected speaker. And now she is. Pretty strong. This is this is why the Republicans demonized her because they knew how -ffective she was this. Why foolish Democrats criticized when they I mean, I've known her I know how formidable she is. Now, Donald Trump does two senators interim Bresnan Trump tweeted that this move was no way concession, but a lot of people on the far, right? A lot of super-conservative. Don't see it that way. Take listen to to Lou Dobbs on FOX business channel. This president said it was going to be conditional border security building that wall, and he just reversed himself. That's a victory for Nancy Pelosi, it will be perceived as such on every television monitor in screen and the country and to deny it is to try to escape from reality..

Stone saw information from WikiLeaks about Hillary Clinton's hacked emails while important nation with senior members of the Trump campaign. The indictment says that Roger stone directed quote person number one to get information from WikiLeaks about their plans to leak those emails, those stolen emails, of course, came from a Russian state hacker, according to US intelligence agencies on Friday person number one reveal does identity.

I want to ask you you say in the that the information in the Muller indictment is accurate and that Roger stone needs to tell the truth. He's facing serious consequences, of course. But he continues to insist he's innocent he's going to plead not guilty. What do you say? Think his motivation is for not telling the truth why not very good at telling someone else's motivation. So I can't really answer. What Rogers motivation is? I know my motivation is to tell the truth, and I will affirm that what is in the indictment about me is accurate, and I will affirm that if asked to in court one of the so that means that you're willing to testify against Roger stone's. Theoretically, if need be you will affirm that the what's in the indictment is correct. I'll be happy to testify. If I was suspect to be subpoenaed, and all that the testimony fall wherever it falls. I'm going to tell the truth to the best of my ability. Even that's hard given the amount of information. And the fact that I said from the beginning, I'm not a human tape recorder.

"Hello. I'm Jake tapper in Washington where the state of our union is open at least for now. The US government is back up and running after five weeks that left hundreds of thousands of Americans without pay and agencies starved for resources on Friday. President Trump gave in housing he would sign a temporary spending Bill to reopen the federal government without any funding for the border wall. The move was a win for house speaker Nancy Pelosi who maintained she would not even discuss border security until the government reopen the president defended himself against critics from the right tweeting. The move was quote, not a concession, but on its face, the president retreated from his demand and the deal was essentially the same as what the Senate unanimously passed in December before the president forced the shutdown lawmakers now face a ticking clock, of course, they have three weeks to make a deal before the government runs out of funding. Again, President Trump has already said he will shut down the government or declare national emergency. If he does not get funding for his wall. Joining me now is Republican Senator Marco Rubio, Florida. He's also a member of the Senate intelligence committee. Senator I want to start with the shutdown. The president did not get any wall funding in this short term deal. SNP says the economy over the last thirty five days lost billions of dollars because of the shutdown. Was this whole strategy strategy by President Trump with Republicans in the house and Senate going along with was it a huge mistake. I don't think shutdowns are good leverage. It's a lesson. I've certainly learned in my time here there's been two shutdowns since the time I've been there and the aggressor and neither one was the winner. I think it's important to separate the tactics from the goal and the policy, and what the president wants is not unreasonable. It's a fraction of what Democrats voted for in the past. And more importantly, I think and these for me is achieving border security is the key that unlocks the door to doing other things on immigration that he's expressed a willingness to do the extension of TPS dealing with a DACA population. I believe he's willing to go even further. And do something reasonable with people who have been here a long time unlawfully, but are not criminals, but all of that is being held up by the inability to get agreement on border security, which the president campaigned on. So I hope people will separate the tactics from the policy because the policy is reasonable and solid. But as you know, the Democrats voting for more money in border security in the past especially in two thousand thirteen the immigration reform Bill that you helped push that was in exchange for a lot of other things having to do with undocumented immigrants having to do with a path to legal status. It wasn't just given out willy nilly. You see there's an opportunity here over the next three weeks to get something done. Where does that optimism come from? Well, first of all we shouldn't be trading border security for anything because it's something we're all for if you're for something. And I'm for something..

"That won't we've had in the past in the past. We had ten years ago when there were many more people trying to come up, but we're mostly Mexicans coming over who you didn't need a wall because if they came over and they got into the country, you can simply return them across the border. That is not the case on a lot of Guatemalans ongo want someone from Tamala Honduras, El Salvador crosses the border because there's no wall and they're in this country. They're released in the country. That is a fundamentally different issue. It's happening because you have the wall is built on US territory. So people can get up to the wall, and they could still go to Puerto of entry and ask for a Silom. And you're still on newest territory, what this wall essentially is going to do is going to help the president his anti asylum Aban because I saw this firsthand when I was in Tijuana at the OT Mesa border what they're doing is. They're turning people away, even if they're on US soil. What is it doing this incentivizing them to try to break the law on come in within the ports? Well, if you're turning them away at the ports, and then you build a wall, then what I wear they're going to you your question congresswoman love because one of the issues here is how far can President Trump go? How far can the Democrats go in order to make a deal you're saying Democrats need to come to the table? There's an opportunity here. Take a look at what secretary of state Ann Coulter just tweeted the other day because she tweeted Trump proposes and the state we voted for Trump and got Jeb just for the small offer. So shows you the. Move without the president the prime the president. But the question is condemned Democrats are afraid of making a deal with President Trump because of secretary culture making steps like. I have and I'm going to say it over and over again is not being able to get immigration reform through was also part of the Republican party. We had a really hard time getting part of the fraction of the effects of the Republican party moving in and helping us out sometimes they torpedo their own. And so when you're looking at an Coulter, it makes it very difficult for the president to even move towards a more immigration reform. I need to point out. What what's the secretary of state? It was a joke because she has a lot going one more thing is that I am really frustrated frustrated I continue to be frustrated that negotiations are being made with the president. It's like, the congress has just advocated all of their powers, given it all the way to see. I wanna see Mitch McConnell at the table with Kevin McCarthy tuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi saying look, can we get actually a deal that we are able to get through. And maybe they might get super majority out of it that we don't have to agree. Where is Mitch Mitch McConnell has been completely silenced by here? Right. Well that so so you're back to secretary Coulter. I'm will the puppet masters allow Donald Trump to actually shut to open up the government. And then negotiate. I don't think. So even though you call it takes about addition vast majority of Americans do not want to see a wall in exchange for a shutdown. They don't want they want the government open, and then have a discussion about border security for you. You know, well that Mitch McConnell's not going to bring up a Bill that his presence not gonna sign, and there's no reason for him to do he can convince leadership about if not trying to convince the president we need to move to Oregon, and I'm sure you're talking to the president of mature they're talking. Well, then he's. Pelosi. That's the problem. She will not come in and have a good faith negotiation. And she was president wanted out. No, the president walked out on because she said, not a dollar. So it could congress. I I want to ask you a question because you represent Los Angeles you're in touch with immigrants you're in touch with undocumented immigrants. So the Washington Post editorial board writes for Democrats to refuse even to talk until the government reopens does no favours to sideline federal workers and contractors, but a measure of statesmanship for a member of congress now is the ability to accept some disappointments in shrug off the inevitable attack from furious..

"Welcome back state of the union tapper today is exactly two years until the next presidential inauguration democratic Senator Kirsten gillibrand in New York is making her pitch telling voters in Iowa how she would take on Trump. Joining me now from west Des Moines, Iowa democratic Senator and presidential candidate Senator Kirsten gillibrand. Senator thanks so much for joining us. Congratulations. You just ask your presidential run. What states? Do you think that you will be able to win in two thousand twenty if you're the nominee? The Democrats were not able to win the last time in New York Senator was the nominee Hillary Clinton. I think there's a lot of states around this country and a lot of people around this country are still really unhappy. Jake. I don't think that those who voted for President Trump necessarily feel that he's done the things that he promised to do, and I'm gonna talk to all voters about what they care about. And so far what I've heard from islands is that they care about healthcare. They care about making. Sure, it's a right and not a privilege. They care about public schools that their kids are struggling class sizes are too big. They want oportunities for their kids, and they care about better jobs better pay and being able to provide for their families. And so I think if I travel around this country and listen to folks about what they. Care about. And then fight for them as hard as I would fight for my own kids as hard as I fight for my own community. I think I can win back voters anywhere because it's about them and their lives and just having someone who will fight for them. Let's talk about the deal. The President Trump just put on the table to extend temporarily protections for some dreamers and undocumented immigrants brought to the US as children people with temporary protective status in exchange for wall funding, you call it a bad deal in your campaign announcement you suggested more bipartisan in Washington, you said you're going to quote people together to start getting things done. So you think it's a bad deal?.

"Hello. I'm dick tapper in Washington where the state of our union is still stunned to watch the federal government inflicting pain of all opponents own citizens now in the thirtieth day of the government shutdown on Saturday. President Trump put a new offer on the table. What he called the compromise in exchange for five point seven billion dollars in border, wall funding, and the government reopening. The president now says he will restore protections for some seven hundred thousand so-called dreamers protections for three more years as well as protections temporarily for some three hundred thousand undocumented immigrants whose temporary status is set to expire the deal was praised by Senate Republicans panned by the conservative, right and Democrats. Immediately rejected that potential compromise speaker Pelosi called quote unacceptable and to non the president's offer on this comes as a special counsel made stunning move issuing its first statement in nearly twenty months correcting a report from BuzzFeed news that claimed that federal sources told them the President Trump had directed his. Former lawyer Michael Collins ally to congress about a potential Trump Tower Moscow the statement from the special counsel reads, quote, buzzfeed's description of specific statements to the special counsel's office and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office regarding Cohen's congressional testimony are not accurate BuzzFeed says they stand by the reporting we're going to talk to two democratic presidential candidates in moments, but I want to begin with the president's personal attorney former mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani mayor Giuliani. Thanks so much for joining us. I want to thank you, Jake. I want to clear up some questions about this Trump Moscow project, and why Michael Cohen lied to congress about it. And why President Trump misled the American people about is it just very clearly did President Trump or anyone on the Trump team ever have a conversation with Michael Cohen about as congressional testimony. Well, let me correct the premise of the question president didn't lie to the American people about it. He said they're dealing with. He said he had no dealings with Russia. And by your own admission. He was talking with people in Moscow about Moscow Pontic through November two thousand sixteen. He wasn't talking to people in Russia about anything. He didn't talk to people in Russia at all. It was not a single stitch of evidence. That was early stage proposal that never got beyond a non-binding letter of intent that was being run by by Michael Cohen. It was his project, and it was being done while Donald Trump was running for president United States and wasn't focused on that at all..

"Not funding FAA, you're not funding various aspects of what helps us do our job at airports, and I think when Republicans. Editors start hearing from actual constituencies interest groups this week and Nancy Pelosi is going to send over the house is going to send over individual appropriations bills for other parts of the government and Mitch McConnell say we can't appropriate for EPA or for the FAA or for agriculture. Why not because we're having a separate fight over the wall. I think that's a very tough position to sustain. And I think at some point. Senate Republicans and you'll ever not setting public goals. And I don't really know that they won't vote to override Trump. No, I think that Jeb slightly, right? I think that a couple of senators have already said we need to just get on with this. And so I know. Right, right. And I think that more is going to come. And so what is actually going to happen next week when we actually introduce appropriation bills individually. So one of the first bills we're going to introduce as the treasury, you know, people will in the next week or really not get their paychecks and their tax refunds will be shows slowed up, but if you just think about it the whole thing about the border, so who's not going to get paid next week border patrol the border patrol say, I'm house appropriations the professions bills. The house has to pass bills or creations that the Senate has passed right in a bipartisan way say it's democratic digital Mitch McConnell gonna refuse to bring up appropriations Bill coming from the house that the Senate has I I guess. guess not bringing up right? You talked about two thousand twenty it. Started already Senator Elizabeth Warren campaigning in Iowa. But some people note that the populism that she's talking about sounds a little familiar. Take a listen. This is about tens of millions of families across this country. Who are getting cheated our workers have been Gedid. Our companies have been cheated what's happening to working families. Why is America's middle class getting hollowed out our great middleclass once the bedrock of American prosperity was forgotten now, it will fairness though that has been her mess. Yeah. She's been saying that we're years. Yeah. The differences he's lying. No. These are these are progressive populist tropes that we've heard for a long long time. This has been part of her message. She's not taking a page out of Donald Trump's book. But these are the very people that he's talked about these are the themes that President Trump talked about that helped him get elected is all I'm saying. And now, we have Hillary Clinton didn't say them as forcefully perhaps, and she could have or should have. And now Elizabeth Warren is competing on that territory. Right. And as as the congresswoman said, it is authentic to who she is. And what she's been talking about for years and years and years, I think you know, what would Hillary Clinton, and I don't want to relitigate twenty. I really don't.

"One dollars one. How's that for the art of the deal? Joining me now democratic Senator Doug Jones of Alabama Senator Jones, thanks so much for joining us. President Trump one your state of Alabama by twenty eight points, you're running for re election next year. How will you explain to your constituents back home? Why you will not support the president's top priority here. Well, the problem is that the government is shut down. Our our state wants the government to open to be open for business. I think that's the most important thing for the people of Alabama right now, we have a lot of government workers in this state. We also have a lot of contractors who depend on that government work a lot of people won't border security for sure, but they also want the government services, and they won't to government to operate. A do not believe that the holding government workers and all those -fected by government services hostage is the way to determine how best to secure our borders, which everyone wants well. I don't know if you've heard acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, but he's saying the president wants five point six billion dollars for border security, which includes the wall, but does not just exclusively for the wall. Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she's not willing to give any money for the wall. Do you think that there should be a compromise made that some money should be given to the White House for the border wall? Well, initially there was money. You know, all of the bills that passed the? Congress the other night the house were passed by the Senate, or at least four of them pass ninety two six the other two bills came out of the appropriations committee with a thirty one to nothing vote or thirty two one vote so Democrats and Republicans in the United States Senate have worked together to try to forge that compromise. Those bills were that compromise. I think Jay, and that's what people are forgetting. I think one of the thing is, you know, Mr. Mulvaney talked about semantics, and I agree with that appears to be that the president wants to negotiate about reopening government and Democrats want to talk about border security and trying to find common ground. And I think there in lies the problem. We do not believe that the government should be shut down and the people of this country held hostage just for a political purpose that the president has right now it is important that government function and function efficiently. But yes, or no, do you think that Democrats should give some money to the White House in negotiations when it comes to the border wall? Yes, or no some money for the wall. I I think that we have to talk about border security. We haven't seen a plan to talk about border security when I've talked to people in Alabama, they won't border security. Doesn't matter what it is. And that's been with a Madison president things we all agree on border security. Everyone agrees on border security. The question is President Trump wants wall money, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer say no wall money, and I'm just trying to get an idea from you. Whether or not, you agree that wall money should be part of any compromise. I'm not going to give wall money just to give wall money. What I'd like to see the plan about how that money is going to be spent we're it's going to be spent that's what we've been lacking..

"But there are places where there is no substitute for a barrier. The bears we have up now in the high traffic areas are over ninety. Affective? So where we have built a barrier along the southern border. It's reduced criminal immigration by more than ninety percent. Yes. There are places out in the mountains in the middle of nowhere technologies, actually better and more cost effective. But that doesn't obviate having a wall where you need it. And that's what this battle is all about that's goes back to your original question about the five point six billion dollars is for border security, including the wall right now, they're number. I think for all border security one point three billion dollars, which is clearly inadequate that is a status quo number, and if all we have is a status quo the next year, we have the same problems we have this year, which is simply not acceptable to the president. I want to ask you President Trump trying to drum up support for the wall on Friday said it some past presidents have told him the day should have built a wall along the us Mexico border previously spokespeople for George W Bush and Bill Clinton said that that wasn't their boss that said that neither Barack Obama nor Jimmy Carter I've ever endorsed the idea of a border wall. Who exactly was he talking about my guess is this boils down to some of the semantic difficulties. We had with. Leader Schumer just yesterday. Okay. Mr. Schumer kept saying you don't have money for a while. Now, you don't have money for wall now, and we're showing pictures of what we're building on the border with the money that we received last year. It's it's a very similar style to the president wants to build in the future. It's the steal what they call a Bollard fence. It's a thirty foot high steel barrier. And our understanding is that that's not a wall in the law right now. The law actually limits are of concrete for example on the border, and we're like, that's fine. That's completely fine. So I'm not really sure you don't know what president it wasn't known. I don't know what the presence mean when they said, they weren't supporting a wall. I know that George Bush was president two thousand six when they signed the secure fence act, which is what we're using right now to build the wall board with him which residents I have no idea. You don't know ask the question that have not asked the president that question. I wanna ask you President Trump cities considering using emergency powers to fund and build the border wall. I wanna read you what you said is a congressman in two thousand fourteen after Barack Obama, then president took a series of executive actions on immigration. That you oppose. You said quote this country has governed by the rule of law and not the rule of one man. The president's excused the congress has not acted is pathetic and insulting his party had complete and total control of the White House. The Senate and the house of representatives for two solid years and completely ignored immigration reform. Does that statement not apply to President Trump as well? It. Absolutely. Plus, in fact, I think it is a couple years ago. I think that replies to his action on DACA when he's I think he actually said publicly he didn't have the right to do what he was doing. But he was doing it. Anyway, one of the things you learn when you get the government is that we give the president who's the chief executive office officer of the country, a great deal of latitude over how the government is run one of the things I've learned it. Oh, MB is that we actually can do that very effectively folks ran a story a couple of weeks ago at the beginning of the shutdown about how the coast guard was not going to get paid made it very clear that he wanted to do everything within his power legally to make sure those folks got paid. And we were able to do that we were able to move money around legally and presidents have the ability to do that. This president has the. Ability to do that as well. And other airs, and we will explore opportunities to do that. I don't think that excuses what President Obama did on on the DACA decision several years. But do you think the President Trump should use emergency powers to fund the border wall presidents have have thority to defend the nation?.
