The History of US Presidential Transportation
"First us president of any sort to fly in an airplane was theodore roosevelt. It was rather short flight as airplanes at the time didn't have a very long range and it was probably one of the more dangerous. Flights ever attempted by president sitting or former come over after this short sightseeing flight. Us presidents didn't do any flying. It would be another thirty three years before an actual sitting. Us president would get on an airplane. The first airplane designated for presidential use was purchased in nineteen thirty three it was a douglas dolphin amphibious aircraft and it was operated by the us navy as there was no air force at the time. The co name. It was given was r d two. It could seat four passengers and there was a small sleeping compartment. The interior was custom made for presidential use with leather seats. It was stationed at the anacostia naval airbase in washington. Dc until nineteen thirty nine and during that time it was never once used by the president to be fair. Fdr was in a wheelchair and getting in and out of an airplane especially a small amphibious plane was probably something that he wasn't keen to do however he did eventually take a flight the very first airplane flight by a sitting. Us president took place on january. Eleventh nineteen forty-three when franklin roosevelt flew on. The dixie clipper was a commercial boeing. Three fourteen clipper which was operated by pan. Am he flew fifty five hundred miles to the casablanca conference in morocco to meet with winston churchill and charles de gaulle. The flight was done in three stages any flu rather than took a ship because it was considered safer than risking german u boats in the atlantic after the trip the army air force didn't want to rely on commercial airlines for presidential transportation. They proposed the president. Use a modified. C eighty seven liberator express heavy bomber. The plane was dubbed the guess where to when the secret service reviewed the safety record of the plane. They rejected it. For presidential use. The plane was used for carrying the first lady. Eleanor roosevelt however on a trip to latin america. But it never carried the president. The secret service then approved a douglas. C fifty four skymaster which was a transport plane used in the war. It was named the sacred cow ended. Had sleeping quarters are radiotelephone and a lift for getting roosevelt in and out of the plane in his wheelchair. The only time you used it was to travel to the yalta conference in february of nineteen forty five. This plane is on display at the museum. At the wright patterson air force base outside dayton

Biden stood in front of the cold reality of his decisions. A series of fateful choices over the past six months drew a tragic line to that moment it was biden who in april settled on august thirty first date for withdrawing u s forces from afghanistan. It was biden who chose a minimum number of us troops to secure the exit and it was biden updated in intelligence briefings and meetings over the summer who oversaw his administration's abandonment of a key. Airbase the delay in evacuating us citizens and allies and belated scramble to provide more troops to get everyone out safely. Hard decisions are histories. Acid test for precedents. It's easy to forget amid the posturing and politics but the architecture of american power means there are some calls that only the president can make and when it came to afghanistan biden was determined to make them he had watched the wars launch. As the senate's top foreign policy overseer nearly twenty years ago then fault and lost an efforts to end it as vice president since announcing the exit he has never publicly wavered on that

There's a passenger section up above the c five a Which looks like a regular airliner. Almost as far as the way the seats are but what they did was. They took little boxes and they brought bought the penalties boxes across the seats. And they'd have all the infants in it. And they would you know put a gigantic seatbelt across all the hold them in place and then the older kids some of the toddlers and stuff for in the lower part of the cargo area with different nations and different stuff and There but so it was i. I think there was well. Well over i think two hundred Well over two hundred kids. I think they were brought in that first flight. There i mean initially some. Wow we're going to Take a break here in just a moment but As you prepared for this personally knowing this was coming. What's going through your mind. Well that's the thing with me was the i was working in newborn nursery intensive care side. I was not assigned to a tactical hospital. So i was just working with my my kids up there and there was all this chaos going around and other places and i felt a little left out of it. To tell you the truth there was something to where i. I was kind of not my role. Hadn't changed and other people were and I was in the icu nursery and intensive care nursery and the intensive care. The hospital was right next to us. So the a couple of the medevac guys. The cormon that work the medevacs would come up from time to time. And i talk to them and they would take the whoever was to the intensive care site you know they were going to be part of the operation and others were involved on the ten city but i was still taking care of my kids which i knew was doing an important role but i didn't quite feel like i was part of it you know and so there's a little bit of a different feeling for me.

"I was being trained for and i assume that's where i was going to go ahead and go and what i was going to do right right so then you get deployed to the philippines correct. Yes and what. Did you think you are going to be doing when you got up there. When i when i went there i thought i would be assigned to one of the tactical hospitals. There's six fifty six and six fifty seventh that you would work in a hospital with a regular job at some kind and assisting in the medical wards or orthopedics or whatever But then you also were assigned twenty technical hospitals that would train and rotate out to different things When i got i i came in there I that wasn't the case i today. I reported Reported with another airman. And we went to the personnel sergeant. And he's sitting there doing a bunch of stuff with his paperwork and there's a big board behind him and it had. I didn't realize that time but there was two openings. There was one in general ward and there was another one underneath this category said. ob which. I had no clue that what that was. Well the cormon. I was with kind of looked at that real quick. And he asked this guy goes. Can i be assigned to the general work. And so he goes yeah for sure and he goes then you have. Ob and i'm just going. Yeah you know you're just a fresh. You know train guy but then i stood up and then before i go sarah where what's all being you know because it's third four four four. I forget what it was. He goes obstetrics. They have an opening in the newborn nursery. And you know. I'm six foot five hundred thirty five pounds and i was strong not like now but i was really strong then and i was just like you know you. I was really respectful to him. But i was like. Oh my i just didn't wanna do it. I remember writing up the elevator thinking. How do i transfer out of taking care of babies. I don't want to take care of babies you know. So that's how i. That's how i came into the philippines. Then you got up there. I got up there. And as i go into the very beginning when it came out of the elevator i came around the corner. there's captain fanny gains. Who is in charge of the whole obstetrical unit. And then there was another officer nectar. Lieutenant lynn foos was a second lieutenant and they were standing side by side down by the newborn nursery. And i could hear the kids wailing and all this and their officers and i'm just coming out of you know training so i'm like i salute them and everything and i'll never forget Captain gains looks me up and down and she goes to something to the effect of you know. I requested to cormon and they send me one big win instead so I you know ended up getting a little bit of training and then going there and then it was just a whole different experience for me. So what were the duties The duties No pun intended with the word duty. Okay but initially. I just worked as helping like you know. Change diapers and feed babies You know maybe take them out to the mothers for nursing. Whatever general house cleaning. I also had to wash the bedpans from the obstetric wards. We have all that stuff and I was just there..

"I kind of wanted just bury myself as just an an average sky within my flight and stuff but My drill instructor chose me to be the dorm sheaf and charge everybody when he wasn't there which i didn't want to embrace it i Because he had everybody from all over. And i'm in charge and stuff and That was a very interesting experience. The physical part and everything wasn't anything difficult or even the discipline but just trying to keep my my flight Under control in the d. I was not around and i have a story where i'm not. I don't have a lot of rhythm. And i had to march him to chow hall. And as you march and you come up to the end of the marching. There's a cadence you have to call to stop them in time and there was a wall and all the other flights do it right and i would come in and i would miss do it and the flight would actually start piling up against the wall marching in place. It looked like a scene out of like the guys on the bridge from the wizard of oz you know. Big soldiers rolled back and forth. And everybody makes fun of me. I finally got it down but it was. I was challenged rhythmically. Let's just say it that way so once. You're done with training where you immediately deployed to the philippines. There was there are a couple of other steps between from there actually was went up to sheppard air force base in wichita falls texas for training as a medic as a medical cormon and i was up there actually for months. I think we were there. And we learn you know all different aspects of the medical field At least most of them. Not some of the stuff that i was gonna come across later. It was really interesting. I i really started to get into it. Like i can do something else besides being a footman football guy so i just really embraced it and stuff in But i was still very competitive and at the end of the training. Right of one of our final Exam thing is a tree is where they put us inside of a hangar and then they have all these different airmen laying out on the tarmac and they have all these prosthetic injuries and we have to make a decision as to okay. How you do this one you know. Save this one. This one's an evisceration. You let this one go. And i went through it and i wanted and i got them all right and i was so proud of myself and then the drill instructor i mean the person running the training He came up to me and he was really upset with me afterwards. Because even though i had treated everybody correctly to save the ones that we couldn't say that i couldn't save with the visitations. I didn't take the time to leave them. The morphine packets so any key and it was it was something that didn't really hit home at the time about the compassion for life. Because i really hadn't experienced death and to me it was just like a competitive thing but something to kind of stuck in my my subconsciously about being more compassionate about life and that whole process so that was kind of a beginning awakening me about you know thinking about what i was going to be as far as a cormon. So so were you planning at this point based on the training to be a combat Well that's that's what you know. I thought i was twenty twenty one years old right. So you're sitting there and that's what you you want. It's the end of vietnam so there's not like a lot of combat going there but as there's tactical hospitals that would rotate out to different skirmishes humanitarian efforts. And that's where you know..

Thanks for having me. Where were you born and racer I was born in dayton ohio ironically on an air force base wright patterson air force base I stayed there 'til. I was six months old and my dad was transferred to castle air force base in northern california. Mer said which. I don't think it's there anymore and from there down. He was transferred to norton. Air force base in san bernardino and after that he had a career in aerospace industry and we kind of just followed wherever those jobs led to. How many years did your dad spend in the service. He was during world war two. So i think it was about four four or five years. I think he was technically in the army air corps before it was actually became the air force in nineteen forty seven or whenever it was right on okay You're a very good football player and went to the university of oregon to continue Your football what position did you play. was recruited there by john robinson. Who coached who on the usc as a wide receiver But they he left and the big coaching change and they tried to put me at tight end which I didn't really want to do. And i had other some emotional issues at the time so I was there for little over a year. And then something stirred inside of me wanting to do something else. So i moved on. And how did that lead to you joining airplane. After i got i i left the school. I wasn't sure what i wanted to do I came back down to southern california. Where i was from and just things turned inside of me where. I wasn't sure what i wanted to do. And i always felt like all i was was a football player my whole life and i actually went by recruiting station and cited to go in and i think subconsciously i went into the air force one because my dad had been in the air force and i qualified for different specialties. I think subconsciously. I chose medical cormon because my mom was a registered nurse and i think that's what kind of precipitator and i was really scored really high So that's how. I actually went in and ended up going down to lackland air force base for my basic training. What was that like. That was interesting..

That's out of the way Danielle you got a cool job. We'll start from the start. How'd you get into that. How'd you get into work with With the air force. All right so i'll surp- in the beginning so back in high school Trying to figure out what i want to do with my life and the only thing that interests me was sports so I knew i didn't want to do the first line of defense being atlantic trade. I don't wanna see the injuries firsthand. But i figure biz. Therapy would be an excess thing. So at that time i cousin edges joined the marines and i was like going home arena supporting him and he ended up tearing his acl while he was in the military Which physical therapy in as you like. Tell me more. So i've found a little bit more about it. Vast visible therapy school. And then i try to of my clinical rotations in the military. And it just. It didn't work out tried. Nobody was helping me. And i just of be about bonnet With retrospect i wish i had tried harder but then you know graduated got out of therapy. School got a couple of regular outpatient jobs. Move down to florida. And then i never lived near a military base so it just kinda like went to the back of my mind. Didn't really think about it. And then i met my now fiance and he convincing rally so to raleigh and house looking for job on indeed it just popped up job at fort brad so i looked it up as well been of a long drive but considering this is what i wanted to do from the beginning i figured i would just give it a shot. I ended up working out. So that's how we're am. I just got really lucky. Funny that it's like a full circle. Back where i started alad wanting to be so it was pretty cool. Artsy federal indeed which means they probably weren't recruiting in terms of joining the military. So how do you get a job as a civilian within the military as a pt in that setting. So there's a couple of different ways so there's three different ways that you can be physical therapists in the military so one would be joining. The military as inactive is therapists which comes with a lot of responsibilities that you have to move every two to three years. That would be the major thing for me. I don't know if i if i could handle that part of it But the so the second way to be a contractor. Like i am so you're hired employees by a private contracting company and you're paid by them and then the third way would be to be a civilian as working for the government. It's called a gs shop so that comes with a lot of great benefits. That's why most people want a gs shop. And it's basically the same thing. As as what. I do now. You can work at all kinds of settings but by the government so you get all those benefits am along with the government pension those sorts of things so those are the three main ways all right. So that's how you get in. That was talked pros and cons right like so talk about. Let's talk about the cons. I i was like to end on the kind of a positive note. So what are are if any the concept. What are some things that people should at least know about working for the military or as a contractor and specific working. Let's go for the military and then a contractor working for the negatives negatives just don't know that you think i didn't know going in that i think some.

"But it was better in the real air force Not not not perfect by any stretch of the imagination but better and then to my gratification. Almost eighteen years after graduation. I was able to go back and actually teach and help lead a department at the us air force academy and i was floored by the changes. And it's really. I think the younger generations coming up or bringing such a different mindset to problems. And that's what this is going to take. It's going to take getting out all of the old guard bringing in these fresh new general generations that have much greater sense of gender equities sexual orientation equities on fairness and equality and and i think That i agree with john that things are definitely changing. But there's more definitely things to do. And i would like to mention the reform movement. There's legislation sitting on capitol hill. Right now that can help move. The ball forward There's vanessa i vanessa and bill that was introduced in the fall. I'm gonna deals with things like providing a separate restricted reporting channel four sexual harassment. That already exists for sexual assault but sexual harassment has been shown to the a precursor potential precursor for sexual assault So things like that. Things like removing commanders. Who have shown that they have failed on this issue. Time and time again from from the prosecutorial decisions right. I'm to provide to help install trust and reinforced trust in the actual system. So there are structural things that can be done. That will not solve the overall. Societal problem But i will definitely help improve the situation john in the coming days and weeks. Is there anything else. We should expect to see From the fort hood investigation. I think you're likely to see more guidance. Specific direction given from the army chief of staff for the secretary of the army What we have right now is report that people are reading and internalizing What i have not seen yet in it may be happening internally Grantham that it could be that. They're so busy. Know generals and other leaders are so busy addressing this internally with their troops with their soldiers that they haven't yet spoken externally about it whether the press releases or via social media But i have not seen publicly senior leaders speaking about this. Exactly what we're gonna do it. I haven't seen okay everybody at this division or this core this battalion. Whatever we're gonna sit down and talk about this today before everyone goes home and then in a week you say subordinate commanders. You present me your plan for what you're gonna do it at your level to address these issues..
"us air force" Discussed on Aviation Week's Check 6 Podcast
"I'm wondering if you can kind of go back and tell us what is next generation air dominance, , and where did that program emerged from? ? How did we get from nowhere to a demonstrator because didn't just happen like that. . Well, , it it. . It seemed to I. . Mean You know when? ? Roper is Dr over the essence secretary of the Air Force Brat Position Technology Logistics. . Announced very abruptly yesterday during his speech that <hes> this flight demonstrator had flown I. think . that everybody by surprise I wasn't expecting that kind of announcement <hes> during his speech today and <hes>. . It's exciting I mean I. . I can't be as as an aviation aerospace journalist with an interest in military aviation I mean this that's the that's as good as it gets a secret of flight demonstrator for new fighter that <hes> you. . You hear about the first time it's confirmed that there's nothing more exciting except for actually seeing it, which , I hope we see when they but <hes> it turns out. . I. Mean . there there is a paper trail there's a, , there's a little <hes> breadcrumbs that have been sprinkled. . Along the path of public comments, , I air force leaders over the past couple years leading to this, , and some of them have only become sensible in retrospect now that we know that this thing really does exist. . But in some ways are actually quite explicit and I think I'd point <hes> initially to an exchange ahead with journal Goldfine who just retired a month ago but <hes> a year ago at the same event even though it wasn't virtual at the time, , it was in Bersin. . Gerald goldfine chief of staff had a press conference I was asking about next generation air dominance in my big question was about the propulsion side of it congress at the time was was expressing quite a bit of frustration with the air force because it's been <unk> billions of dollars on adapted cycle propulsion, , and there was no publicly available roadmap to use it, , and so they're saying. . Why are you still asking for this money? ? We have no place to put it. . You know. So . tell us where you're going to put A. . I, , put that question to many explain what you know. . It's it's bit difficult because there's a live classification while tennis and so there's only so much. . We can say they said L. L. Region his exact quote he said he's here's our. . Strategy. . We have five key technologies that were investing in that we don't intend to have all come together on a single. . To be able to do the mission. . In the future, , we expect these technologies to be adaptable to existing platforms, , and we expect these technologies to come forward into a family. . I, , know use family assistance a lot but really, , and truly that's the next generation dominance. . So as a so our intent is to keep these joint technologies moving aggressively and have them come together. . They will all mature in accelerate at different paces as they become ready. . You'll see US adapting them on existing platforms, , sensors, , and weapons, , and also looking at new platforms sensors. . So that was what he said and then I I didn't understand what really what he was getting out. . I just didn't he didn't answer my question. . So I repeated my question. . What is the you know? When ? are we going to see a roadmap for adaptive cycle propulsion? ? And he his answer was there has to be a test article to be able to take some of those technologies to mature. . That's probably about as far as I can go in quote right so what he was saying they're in retrospect is we have five technologies. . We're GONNA put on in Gad. . He didn't say but sounds like adaptive cycle propulsion is one of them <hes> and <hes>. . You know they need a test article, , a flight test demonstrator in other words. . To validate the majority of the technologies in-flight. . So. . That was almost as explicit as the air force has been about that. . But really there was a time when. . The Department of Defense was even more explicit about the the plans to actually use flight demonstrators for next generation are dominant and it goes back Congressional testimony in twenty sixteen at the time Frank Kendall who was the Under Secretary of defense for Acquisition and technology a acquisition technology in the justice. . It has written testimony. . <hes> included this written test, , the House of Representatives. . <hes> twenty. . This was actually in calendar year twenty fourteen and it was going to launch a program in. . Fiscal year. . Twenty fifty. . and. . It was the aerospace innovation initiative that would be managed by the defensive ends. . <UNK> agency Darpa. . Anna says the A I- Aerospace Innovation Initiative includes a new program to demonstrate advanced aircraft technologies in explains. . As, , well, , as the ongoing previously mentioned advanced engine technology, , which is adapted cycle. . A. . I is goals include strengthening. . The critically important design teams in the defense industrial base reducing lead. . Time. . For Feature Systems <hes>, , the explains will not be engineering. . Development Prototypes for have residual operational capabilities. . The results successful the development and demonstration explain program will inform future aircraft <unk> acquisitions. . So that gives you a sort of the background on how these. . <hes> flight demonstrators came into existence and what their purpose walls. . We know from Rocha's comments that the flight demonstrator that he's referring to be called a full-scale flight demonstrator so as a subscale or Even, , a large aircraft that is meant to extrapolate the flying qualities of even of an even larger aircraft. . So <hes>. . You know but there's still a lot we we don't know about it <hes>, , but that's generally the gist of how we got

"We'll talk about it. I guess academically. I have a bachelor's degree management science. I'm a call from Kingston across. I coach said if I'd had because and currently doing masters assigns in Applied Psychology. So a bit of a mixed bag different muscle anything but certainly trade when it comes to just general business really big ashes trying to change in the world through tyrod entrepreneurs and entrepreneurialism and she's a bit of a common thread through my entire career so currently working late at Acworth. I never thought I would ever see myself working with any government organization but with any military organisation. Africa's really cool and it's out of the and to be described as an innovation manpower office of the US Air Force as opposed to innovation office. So a very small team of people but Wade really you know Pacific as a change and drive will change. We two main goals wanted to try and improve efficiency effectiveness and quality licensed pinker within the source and then secondly just to help with driving a culture of innovation within the African is too many sections to it. One is government was led team. They started honeycomb but then operates cross loss basis around the world on many non-government team. I mostly in the non-government team and we have to call them. Innovation Hugs wanting to DC crystal city. And one is in in Las Vegas. The one in Las Vegas is much bigger than the one in. Dc and those two are both from Biden non-government team members. And we also have a hub in Austin which is awesome by the effortless. Mikey rose athletes. One is the leading of Folks Vegas and Hey we have twenty six thousand square. She could space. We do lots of dissertation workshop. Soon thinking sessions plus events for their source we connect people from it in the across to the external community and startup communities they call it nontraditional business so typically business which is never worked for the government before notion before we're trying to connect and you're the key role that I have these I lead. The efforts challenge capability to choose one of the tools that we have to connect at problem when I come opportunities with industry and a very different way to the traditional process. So we try and do things much faster much simpler rifles and clean English to read and then tale back into a government process in work in an by that time. Hopefully we've engaged with these industry folks to previously would never wanted to work with the government because I get scared off by the detail. Documentation timeline associated with something. Yeah exactly we'll great nutshell folks in Vegas. Yeah Ah that sounds yeah. Definitely you did a great job you know. I think for most of our listeners who are across the world by the way we have listeners from Australia as well as Canada and all those other places and UK and many other regions and you know they looked to the American innovation ecosystem. A sort of like a really interesting model and it's always interesting to see the collaboration between sort of government entities and industry and startup ecosystem. And we've been really very good to see the level of extent to which the government as a whole is interacting and trying to innovate both inside of the Department of Defense and across as well as many civilian agencies. What's happening in? Department of Energy and even an irs. You know this is so much so much innovation happening and I think start ups and technology folks who are listening to this podcast should maybe keep an eye open to opportunities. Obviously if you're outside the US is a little harder to interact with maybe certain governmental agencies but we recently did a report at Cog Nick on worldwide. Ai Strategies and almost every country now has an AI strategy. And I think interfacing with what's happening in your government would be useful to are far listeners. So obviously we focused quite a bit on artificial intelligence and you know is just one of those transformative technologies. I know not maybe everything that even Africa's doing but to what extent have you seen? Ai Impacting what is happening at the Department of Defense and more specifically the air force. And what's happening with an effort? Yeah how I'm a little bit popped to mind that you were talking though is I was in so I was as I said before I was involved in ecommerce whenever someone sayings me along time ago at some point in the sheet show will not call this e-commerce anymore. It will just be coming because it's just the way things are done in many respects. You could argue the same thing you know we're unofficial intelligence. And essentially I think every country in the World Intelligence Strategy Right now. They may call it out of his his strategy. But eventually I think this kind of there is going to be general manager of human intelligence artificial intelligence in the future we really be able to differentiate between the two. I think that time is coming. Not Maybe not just actually I guess mine and I'm not a technical person at all so I guess I'll just speak to this just general kind of business perspective but higher. I contracted without intelligence in presence. Is I guess anything that can help me planning things. Maybe meaning things about helping me solve problems. Alchemy representing data helping job improvements section combat. I've experienced with computers. Is the Kroger correctly? Me Algorithms have good? It can definitely faster and it can definitely money. Casey do it better than me? Studies detention about efficient intelligence. And essentially. You know whether we use to our tagline we give. It hasn't potential which would change everything I can see and just a simple example in the next couple of weeks. We've actually got team coming to Africa. Vegas which is with Dhaka. We're going to be running dockside between humans and intelligence this'll be essentially flight simulator where the bunches very experienced pilots flying against the center of Algorithms to see who wins in a dogfight and I thought that was just really timely. We just had the association events in all on more recently and dealer. Musk's present I one of the things that he must say conference was essentially. He thinks the age of the apologies over and we'll start with computers takeover. Our new green best true in the next decade or the next fifty years early that up to you for certain late wonder world is changing using computers. More we're using data mall then we evolve in the past and the whole thing's these algorithms can do background Dr Done Seaman's error. They don't get tired. That can work twenty four hours a day see. We definitely seeing a lot of Olympics location. Contribution Pelicans in all the work that we're doing right now. I just came out of the workshop that we're running here in bagels which is focused on pilot training heck intelligence periods of quality of trained pilots. Whether it's taking all the data from you know debate we collect when a metric. Data applying response time reaction time the pilot whilst that flying when analyzing data and coming up with useful business mentioned knowledge that can be shared to help the pilot. Oregon's recommend pilot just doesn't cut it. And maybe they shouldn't be flying a jet maybe instead they should this lying transporter so yeah. I really think you need is becoming very ubiquitous across everything but concern asking and businesses while it's happening. Yeah those are some really great use cases and you know. I'll be interested to hear what happens when you put the human pilots versus the Ai Pilots. In this dogfight state. You're going to have so. That's very interesting down bright sunny. Yeah so tech. Stores and F- works have partnered together to advanced entrepreneurship. Can you explain what texts what techstars is all about? And how do you see this relationship being helpful to advance? The goals of APP works cool so I mean. Textiles has been around for a long time helping entrepreneurs helping startups creating the connection between the idea the entrepreneur and community. You know supporting them. Giving them tools go through the various stages that you need to go through from not having an idea to actually having a fundable project company so Texas has been doing for a long time.

"To you by the US Air Force you don't have to turn to somebody anybody trusted one person go getting something I'm gonna have to do this again Roger Goodell brought this on himself you sure you want to make that one yet because I know I sat on TV for about a month and I said not Matt Ryan Tom Brady finished with four hundred sixty six yards and still Giselle Bundchen boys and girls you can listen to new an archived episodes of the Tony Kornheiser show on the I heart radio after I heard radio goes one on one with Sam Smith talking about what influences his life in song writing I think my parents my family all of the way I am and I wanted to play to my strengths kind of fill out my strings my singing or so my team to be emotional as a matter on to emotional and I'm proud that I've shown that side of myself keep listening to I heard radio for more from your favorite artists he the stars of Jersey boys lightning in about a one thirty minutes from now that Jersey boys at the north shore music theatre a if you haven't seen Jersey boys you need to be if you've never been in larger music there do you need do is a nice confluence of events right now you can see Jersey boys at the north shore music theatre so talked of stars that show it around two fifty also got some stuff coming up in about ten minutes that you may want to get your hands on so we'll do that as well right back to the phones after I read a tweet from Marco Rubio been awhile since we've heard from would be alright yeah so is Rubio size Rubio on here trump Netanyahu or is he on the side of to leaving Omar some of the gas is gonna be half the squad writing your own waffles you only get the place has control board sorry really okay I disagree a hundred percent with reps to leave an Omar on Israel and I am the author of the anti BDS bill we passed in the Senate but the nine ma'am entry into Israel is a mistake being blocked is what they really hope for all along in order to bolster their attacks against the Jewish state and we he may be on to something he's on to something and he's also Marco Rubio which is to say that Marco Rubio does this every time which is he make sure that no matter what the party is he's got a way you can say what I told the I'm totally against these guys but but I'm for having them in like are you trying to say he's waffles he is dead he's also rejoice the original wall he really is I mean this is is quintessential Rubio so you're saying our waffles is like many waffles it's a bigger than he's definitely taller than you don't know you details right wall looks like Ciara walking what look the thing I Barbie might also listen to show lighting because we ask the same thing about half an hour ago and now he's tweeted forty minutes ago but being blocked is what they really want this is why get back that out dad I mean they probably didn't want to get blocked because they can now scream and yell and say all look how terrible they are look at their treating us this is why I get back to that statement from my was it the Jewish American coalition or whatever it was that said you know given the choice of two not great outcomes we think he chose the wrong one there is no upside here yeah let me in yeah I have a merry and god knows what they're going to do you don't let a man and they get to go this is what Israel does they don't let people that did center anything they say which is which so again you've got to you've got a that's one of my favorite lines of all time it's from the sequel to Chinatown which was awesome but Nicholson says like it sometimes you got to choose the leper with the most fingers that's what you have here which is that neither I'm a great yeah leprosy right like you're but this hands got three fingers in his hands get too so I'm gonna take the finger band with three fingers right I mean it's pretty common sense you don't have a good outcome here so you got to figure out which ones the least bad outcome and what Netanyahu's determined is that that is banning them it's still doubt if I do damned if I don't I haven't seen yet I assume like Lindsey Graham will be doing it soon I maybe he has already but the only elected officials that I've seen commenting on this so far are against it follows the Schumer Rubio it cetera except trump haven't heard much from the dem candidates actually are running for president but I'm sure we will soon but I'm also wondering how many elected officials are going to say the right thing we support this because again it's it is crazy on its face the president of the United States is telling a foreign country not to allow elected American officials officials into the country said D. that's crazy until you think about it you figure out the participants and you go out you know what though not that crazy it really isn't do you think that since he's up in Manchester tonight eating is gonna mention this during the rally do you think he's going to mention one thing was that the question like do this rally got a whole lot more interesting yes so overall our allies we're gonna be on Manchester now all eyes are really gonna be an interesting question is and does he mention it is how long does he talk about it I guarantee you he's going to say Bravo to my good friend Bibi Netanyahu there's a reason why I like that guy he makes good decisions and this was a good decision lock we don't need people that don't want Israel to be on the map and these two want Israel gone they want a one state solution and that one's status Palestine and that's outrageous that's an affront to that country and they should not be allowed there and it's gonna drop big applause the question is what else does he say it's always a thing right you know now but this event tonight it's just got a whole lot more interest whole lot more interesting yeah six one seven two six six sixty eight sixty let's go back to the phones let's into the plastic cities these in Leominster he's next on RKO I see very far good thank you go yeah that that too quick thanks what what everybody's over complicating the whole situation we can people from Congress the country is it diplomatic work with that what what diplomatic rarely we have sending them we all know sometimes the Congress is free to travel as they see fit Pelosi doesn't a lot they go on these the D. excursions and they're not wrong but they're not coming from the White House Steve their common as representing is the country in the country has many divergent opinions and they're not like well the country when they do travel out there no matter what their representatives of the country yes they're not diplomats of that we have a mac the representative of the kind they're not a diplomat in this sense the they're not meeting with their again they're not having like official start your Jim may bring would get mixing board and and everybody's all read what Myrick your honor what they gonna stay who would they go to fake they they anyway right but if you're Israel you don't want I'm saying it on Israeli soil I don't want to hi what do you what what they're going to say that they don't know what anyway but it's not that you're afraid of it but Steve like for example this is one of the reasons why people are concerned at trump might invite Kim Jong hoon do to the White House well like man this guy is a brutal dictator he's going to do what he's going to do but we don't need to give him there the wrong red carpet treatment just because you know we're trying to make nice with them the guy's done some horrific things right so you don't lay them on our soil yeah what we didn't realize if you want some kind of between you went from North Korea you got me in a different country is the argument I am I worked out we'll see what happens and see how that goes but that's just an example for example again we talked about this earlier where when we lack many jogged into the country because you wanted to address the U. N. and you wanna happens to be in New York now there was a question does he just go to the U. N. and then get out or do we let him move about the country Columbia invited them to speak on their campus and the question was should that be allowed it was allowed even though I mean in the job was very anti America I'm gonna I'm gonna tell you stop everybody gives be you went too much respect they wouldn't joke they're one of the reasons why our world is so messed up okay but that's I look and I you can argue there's there's another example of you know anti Israeli sentiment within the United States the U. when is always ripping the Israel on every chance they get just about yet they're here in America there here in New York you just do what are people going to say the things are gonna say is fine and it's not that that matters as early afraid of it but if you don't like it and you know the damage that it can cause why would you do it so yeah come on and do it here let's do it in Jerusalem that be great I what sense does that make which is trump point why would you have known enemies to your country come in and talk about how bad you are exactly what are we inviting you know all I use bush's old term the axis of evil at the time which is around Iraq and North Korea are we saying fellas come on in please let our people know what it is you don't like about us like why would you do that what what possible sense that's why I have no problem with his decision the good news is you have no problem now lighting it do you do it still is concerns here and there so again there's a reason why Marco Rubio wild one of the leading voices in a sense as wrong decision is only reason why the speaker of the house says wrong decision there's a reason why a packet saying wrong decision because it is complicated it all use the eleven thirty dated but I use the lemon stirs phrase that he seemed to think no one else understands the meaning of but diplomacy in the interest of diplomacy sometimes you say well I think these people are crackers off their rocker and make no sense this is the issue with trump going to England and the mayor of London saying I don't want you here this is the present United States okay you don't want the president of the United States in London yeah but that he's got a higher office in these elected officials these are complicated and they date I think you made the right decision to say it's called get all you want one of the problems lightning is that by doing this you now first of all you give them what they want you give Omar into Lee but they will they can complain all they want they they can complain they can say this is what Israel does Israel just pushes people around the don't listen do everything they have the same number one but number two you also tell the next group the the mayor cons of London that when you want to tell trump next time yelp yes all of our you are as at all you gotta do is say Hey Netanyahu's done it this is why I'm doing it are you like them and yeah I was just now set a standard that you may not want would be the argument Netanyahu is just saying you know what we're not gonna take this disrespect and ignorance by you we're not gonna take your crap you know we'd be happy to oblige it was under different circumstances but if we're going to bed you need to and you know I mean you're gonna come here and have these protests and rallies or whatever the planning I don't know their full itinerary but you know what if you want to come work with us and we'll make it happen but they're not willing to meet in the middle and that's the problem did you just use our show name in your I did a fence line I did I feel like does strive hard to not do that but you just did it I did six one seven two six six sixty eight sixty more calls we come back it's B.

"US air force. Independent in thoughts and punk rock in life. It's the Chad Benson show. This fight with the walls going to be very very interesting. Because again, we're in a situation that we are just recently removed from shutdown all because of five point two billion dollars. And what's that over, you know, a few people, right? That's what's that over Fred's. Right. Like five point two billion to build a portion of the wall. A lot signed a Bill everything. And yesterday the bipartisan meeting start what does that mean? Well, they all kinda got together. Right. Like, we're getting together. Talk about stuff wrong side. It was very good. I entered the room with a lot of optimism, and a lot of hope that we could actually sit down and work through our issues and the tone in the rum really from every member whether they were Republican or democratic senators house members was very positive, very cordial. I think we have set the tone for very good, good, good, confrontations. I think it's very positive. It. Sounds positive right? But Trump tweeted out this morning. Hey, look, Republicans are wasting their time Nancy said maybe a barrier in certain areas, but otherwise seeing is not going to happen. He held a court as he normally does in a situation like this earlier. There's no wallet doesn't work and she's just playing games. So if there's no wall, it doesn't work and behind the scenes they're carrying on as. If there's going to be an emergency declared, and he's just going to go and start finding the money apparently sent point two billion is what he found. Elsewhere he declared a state of emergency. And I guess they can get get to. We're building new sections starting in about two weeks for building some brand new sections large sections and the wall is getting built I would like to build that even faster, but it's getting built getting Bill verse substantially and that money came from last year that was one point two one point three billion dollars allocated towards that. So it's not like, oh, he's already starting to know. It's not like that. But he wants it done faster. And the reality is we're back in the same place. Right. Two weeks. From now except the difference. Is there probably won't be a shutdown? It's just going to get uglier. And uglier and the court systems are going to get involved. And there's a lot that's going to happen. Because they can't come together and neither side, and I will say this as much as Trump drives me crazy, and I didn't agree with the shutdown. The fact is is at least he gave some let's remember that he gave he offered up. Protective status DACA recipients. They wanted some two hundred fifty to three hundred thousand he said, no, no, no, no. I'm gonna give you up to a million. Right up to a million which the last time I checked. That's pretty good. It's more than what they're asking for. In hopes that they get a comprehensive plan done president who wants to have congress be completely irrelevant. And how we meet the needs of the American people now. Yeah. That's irrelevant. You guys are already irrelevant. Didn't you know that you guys are already irrelevant? Because you don't do anything. You don't get anything past. You don't do anything. This last congress one hundred fifteenth. Was the worst. For. Worse..
