Warren Rustand on Leading a Life of Design

"So excited that you hear him dose of leadership. Welcome to the show. Thank you very much. Richard lied to be with. You should have some fun today. Yeah it's a true honor really your your expertise in your your the leadership junkie of all junkies. I think i love your book. The leader within uh. It's really good and it speaks resonates with me deeply. You're the first person that use these three terms. And i've been saying this a lot for the past few years about i thought the keys to unlocking transformational leadership. The compassionate side for sure is authenticity. Transparency vulnerability. I saw those three words a coin together. Your book a handful of times. And it just. I just love that so. You're the first person that i've seen. That's coin those three together. So i appreciate very nice you to say. Thank you very much really interesting experience. When i was working at the white house as appointments secretary to president ford and it was one of these times when i'd been appointed. And maybe you've had this experience to richard where you know right away that maybe you're not quite up to the job. You got a lot to learn. And wondering as fast as i could at the people i was hanging out with you know and i don't do this to namedrop to suggest you sort of how i was feeling at the time you know. I was there with don rumsfeld. Dick cheney colin powell. Bob gates brent scowcroft henry kissinger. That was the senior team. Now i was a part of that team. And so i and i was new to the white house. Twenty nine years old new politics and that's didn't feel like i was quite up to it quite good now. So we had a meeting of that group in the oval office one day with the president as they drifted out. I hung behind. Speak to present. I said mr president. I speak with these. Yes sit down. I said mr president not experienced enough. I'm not smart enough. I'm gonna make a mistake. It's going to embarrass you. And and here's my letter of resignation. And i put on his desk and he looked at it for a moment and he swivelled his chair to look out across the south lawn of the white house rose garden and he came back to me and he said you know warned. The very fact that you've said this to new to me makes you qualified to be here. The fact that i was vulnerable transparent and honest with him he knew he could trust me from that point in time as a result of that he trusted this whole farm kid with a lot of stuff that he showed it ever trusted to do but it worked out to be a really nice relationship. I learned early on that. Those three words are key to really deep relationships. I agree a hundred percent. And i love that story. I remember reading that book. You're right. That's where the first time i saw this phrase those three words together based on that story. What a great baptism by fire for for being around the greatness in being the witness as you open up the book to a standing there once nixon official he was going to resign. And you're able to witness ford kind of sit. There process. what was happening the gravity of what was happening and then go into action. I love that kind of inside baseball aspect of that. Of course. I remember that moment when it happened to but just to be there to witness that. It's just amazing when you're in your twenties late twenties but still you know just honored to be there to to witness the transfer of power and the ability of someone to grasp the significance of what was happening. You and then act upon that significant at that moment in time was really a profound leadership lessons for me. It is stayed with me my whole life to to gather in the data and the information the facts and then to have a plan to act on that and In the precise moment when you need to act yeah right is some of us could have said well. Let me step back from this for six months and figure this out that day he said i. I'd like to have the following six people here at seven. Am tomorrow morning for a transition team. Me and we walked into that room the next morning. He pulled from his jacket. Five pages of notes. He had a vision for what that transition was going to be. And that was a significant leadership.

"And to all of my wonderful supporters. I know you are disappointed, but I also want you to know that our incredible journey is only just beginning. Thank you. God bless you and God bless America. That was the president. I also want you to hear General Colin Powell, former Secretary of State Colin Powell with Wolf Blitzer yesterday cut number six there watching with great interest, and they can't believe we have done this to ourselves. That's a gift for Mr Putin, who I know quite well, You know, we'd like to pick on them and say they're doing things wrong or bad or they're not good. And suddenly they're looking at the United States of America and we've got people running all through our Capitol building. I've never seen them run through. Capitol buildings of the Russian Federation. And so they're just smiling and say, See Americans, they're not as big and bad as they like to make themselves out to be. They're gonna be surprised They're going to discover that we're going to rebound rather quickly. I believe that once we settle this problem of these, these people who are out there, whatever they came from, arrest him, put him in jail or run him off, but clean out the place. And once we settle down and I, frankly once Mr Trump is no longer the president, United States of America. On. We have other people in the government and we have a new president. President. I think things will settle down quickly. The big problem that I have with all of this Is that? Where was the Congress and all of this? And all of the things that we have been doing. The Congress just went along with the with Mr Mr Trump. On and usually was just the Republican side. There was some things we did that. Showed that the Congress was not ready to do its duty. All of these things that have come up. Let's deploy forces here. Let's put forces there. Let's make the budget this high. Let's make the budget that budget that low. This is congressional duty business in my years in the military in my years as national security advisor and as Secretary of state I welcome Congress. Challenging me for what I was doing. That's what they're supposed to do, and that's what I'm supposed to listen to. What should I be doing? What do you think I should be doing and I would debate the Congress and I would argue with him. And we settled out the arguments after discussing them. But that doesn't happen Now We've got an extremely weak cabinet. It's getting weaker by the day they were walking out now. On they did not challenge the president. You saw the movie or the tele television piece last week. With the Argument that the president was having with some people. On. They told him the truth, but he didn't want to hear the truth. He said. No, I'm not buying that. We would never have seen something like that. During my days and government When we went into when we went in to see, say President Bush. Good gang of eight. We called ourselves the Group of eight. It was me, Mr Cheney, My boss and Secretary State Baker. It was a great group. We were free to talk. I've talked. I've told this story many, many times. You know, Mr Cheney was my boss. I was just the chairman. Had no authority in that room. What Cheney would give the Position of the Department of Defense to President Bush. Mr President. This is the decision that we make. This is what we recommend to you. And then he would pause you say, But Colin doesn't agree with me and everything cold and tell the president what you think and I would And that's the kind of organization we had. We all chipped in. We all contributed our viewpoint and not to have that kind of a government is to have the weakest possible government possible. Well, you not allow people that come in and talk openly before the President, United States and Bush would just sit there and listen to it. And then, when he had heard it all he was ready to make a decision. He made the decision. We executed that decision that's gone. I don't know where it went, but it's gone. And there is not a Cabinet now that understands this as well as they should, and they're not doing the job they're supposed to be doing. Is it going to come back in the new administration? Well, we're gonna have a new administration and it's going to be a president who has experience at that level as a you know, a politician. And I have great confidence in Joe. I know him quite well. We've done a lot together. We've raised our Corvettes together. On D. I think he is the kind of individual who will understand these issues and will approach them with a genuine approach. We wants to hear what people think. What is the case? The tone death? Uh, part there is we raised our Corvettes together. And I think people who are watching now. Not a lot of Conservatives watch CNN anymore, but if they were watching people in Middle America we raced on Corvettes together is not going to resonate..

Iran’s president blames Israel for killing nuclear scientist and vows to respond at the ‘right time’

"Joe biden could be facing a crisis in iran when he takes office the runs top. Nuclear scientists was killed. Daytime ambush friday. The scientists was considered the architect of iran's secret nuclear program that was halted in two thousand three while. Nbc news has not independently confirmed details surrounding his death. Iran's foreign minister has implicated israel in the attack but israel has not commented on the allegations. Join me now now. You're a hawk former state. Department senior adviser and host of sirius. Xm that global experience treat a policy of the quincy institute for responsibility in statecraft and author of losing it. Enemy and colonel lawrence wilkerson former chief of staff for secretary of state colin powell. So i'd like to start with you. Treat it what exactly is happening right now. What are we hearing. Well the latest is happening. Is that the iranian president. I've come out with a statement. Essentially saying that iran is not going to walk into what he called a trap by israelis to escalate and and create a war because that is in his assessment with the israelis wants But it is not clear if that is the view of other elements inside the country. Some of this debate is starting to be taking place in public in which the argument that is made by the other side is that these assassinations continued to take place precisely because in their view the iranians have not responded harshly enough to previous attacks and the only way of preventing future. Attacks is to respond harshly. This one if that happens however than there is a very significant risk for a major esscalation potentially war which according to ruhani is what the Always looking for curl wilkerson. How unusual would it be for the notes to have not been informed of this. Do you believe that the white house knew that this was going to happen. It would be extremely unusual. Maria theresa I have to believe that was informed Trump's whole effort now seems to be to be foul the recent election. So i don't think he's very attentive to but my peyot at sectors state is and i'll remind your viewers of what's up their defense robert gates Now my chancellor. William and mary that the saudis are willing to fight the iranians for the last dead american. And i would add bb netanyahu too much in yahoo in that. I think that's what we're looking at here. They want as a major outcome. A war as a middle ground outcomes they want a bombing campaign by the us against toronto nuclear facilities and as a minimum amount They want to foreclose any possibility of the new president. Joe biden reentering the joint comprehensive plan of action the nuclear agreement with iran and. It looks like they're well on that road to success to follow up on that. Because i think the what the colonel stating is quite implicates the perhaps the role of the white house in this we know that any who has been a very strong ally of donald trump donald trump has been very clear that he is an ally of israel but also want also was the one that was responsible for pulling us out of the nuclear deal with iran. And the idea that we're hearing possibly is that donald trump perhaps did this. No had israelis did this informing donald trump. But also is this netanyahu's attempt to do something under this current administration that he knows me not able to do with a biden administration will the binding administration has certainly picked up a where. The obama administration left off in terms of wanting to return to diplomacy and use the tools of diplomacy to box in bad actors. If we rewind we know. The iran nuclear deal was less about iran's as a terrorist nation and more about eliminating the ability for iran to get a nuclear weapon. That yahoo was opposed of the saudis. Were closed. But this was a coordinated effort between european countries including russia and the united states with the united states. Pulling out that really opened the door. Before is israel and the saudis to look to other avenues to influence the united states. You also had with trump national security adviser john bolton who was in iran war hawk and so some of that still remains netanyahu just last week was meeting and talking with mohammed bin salman the crown prince of saudi arabia. So they're looking at a ticking time clock of being able to behave in ways in which the international at least the united states will not be speaking up. An opposing their efforts so That's the key thing is how much can they. Box in. A biden's options By engaging the united states under a trump administration or while trump is still commander in chiefs treatise of the. Us has done officially commented on what occurred. What is your take when this idea that. Perhaps the trying to do is box in the president elect wyden. I think that's absolutely correct than i think it's also correct would counter wilkerson said that There was probably some sort of implicit green light from the trump administration for netanyahu. Go forward with this. However it's also important to recognize that. Netanyahu must also have calculated that biden. Probably does not have the political will to inflict impose a cost netanyahu if he does these things to box in biden and i think it is up to the biden administration to prove netanyahu wrong. Because i doubt that netanyahu would have gone down this path unless he felt that it was pretty much cost fee from him not just from trump but also from biden

A Donald Trump sister came out this weekend and said that her brother is a liar. Brothers are brothers could just send the other so his first gift would be. He has the gift of lying. Oh, no, I think he I think he tells the truth a lot, but I don't think people like it when he tells them the truth. Of course, it's usually in opposition to their lives. Then didn't you ever have a sterile than you ever have somebody in your family didn't like you? Did you ever have anybody and he didn't like you know that I was always I was always the special one. But I will say, I want to ask you a question. Remember when President Obama was criticized by his brother in Africa and his sister? Here. I mean, does that mean old Barack was a bad guy? Just one person I heard against Obama. I heard John Bolton and Ah Colin Powell called Palin came out calling pals and establishment won't wait a minute. Carol. I know what you said. But listen. Colin Powell is a bushy establishment moderate who the president said Go take a walk when he tried to get a job in the administration. This is all jealousy. This is all hatred or its politics. Its because their establishment people who do not believe in the revolution of making America great. And keeping America. Great rate. They're part of the problem. Okay, Well, what about you? Peggy? Noonan is another ones. But you're bringing up all these people, you know? Okay, we'll give you give you my second in my second life. OK. I mean, my second thing, Okay? Sure. Go right ahead. Okay. The second one is that he takes He takes something good and turns it into something bad. I'll take the Iran deal. He got out of Iran. Oh, thank God. Thank God. Thank Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Thank God you want to give me what a gift? What a gift. And I want to thank you, Terrell for reminding me of that wonderful decision on leadership.

I gotta stick on this one. This is a good one. A number one prior to the China virus, not the Trump virus. The China virus. The rate in the United States for unemployment was the lowest in 20 years and among black people. It was the lowest ever and then we had the virus. Of course, you won't admit it. Like all radicals what virus? There was no virus. They just caused unemployment because he destroyed the economy. Please try to have just a semblance of honesty in your accusations unemployment rate when he came in tow when Donald Trump came in 7.2 Yes, it was sent point to it. And it was 3.6 Psi almost cut it in half. So you're saying that now the unemployment look, if you want to have an honest debate on unemployment, there's no question he reduced unemployment, especially among women, minorities. Aziz pass Hispanics and we all know that it's in The Wall Street Journal. They even said it on CNN, one of your religious channels. Why don't you admit it? And now you're taking all your credibility. You're destroying it by using the virus as an excuse to talk about unemployment. Please try to stay honest. What happened? He didn't run away. I don't know. I was having so much fun with him. But you understand that's how the big liars think. They're going to blame the unemployment rate on this president, which has now reduced in the past two months, by the way. Because they blame him for the virus. China China They're good people. They wouldn't do anything. It's the Trump. It's the Trump virus. Please. Here is Walt in Baltimore. Good morning. Hello. What?

You will never down. He will stand with our friends and stand up to adversaries. Never the other way around. He will trust our diplomats in our intelligence community, not the flattery of dictators and desperate he will make it his job to know. When anyone dares to threaten us. He will stand up to adversaries with strength and experience. Now. The reason that speech matters is because Colin policy Former retired your former retired four star general.

Four star general Hello, Secretary of state. Hello. Earned it earn. At least a listen doesn't mean going to shape my votes. It won't but at least it It comes with a and an air of credibility. That's the magic of dropping these Republicans into what is a Democratic national convention. Who's the next one going? Toby could be Mitt Romney could be another surprise. We'll see.

"I'm encouraging everyone that I know to go out and vote because our vote is our is our power. Everything. Leandra was Joe Biden. You're first. Voice in the primary. No, actually, he wasn't but I was undecided. I didn't know who I wanted to vote for us. Just like hope. I wasn't sure I just was looking around. I didn't know who I was going to vote for. I just was trying to see who was going to be the best candidate. So then, when I started doing my research, that's when I started looking into Joe Biden. Thank you, ma'am for calling in Joan and Wichita Kansas Republican line, Joan, What did you think of Joe Biden speech tonight? I thought it was wonderful and without question. This is an American moment. We are in the worst place I've ever seen our country internally as well as throughout the world. And we need to heal and we need to be cared for. There is nothing about the current president. That is a surprise. He is exactly what we knew we were left in when he was elected four years ago. He has proven his level of immorality and narcissism, and it's time That he be out of office and that we have someone that has integrity, honesty and decency. Now you're calling on the Republican line. Have you been a long time Republican my entire life. Everyone in my family is a Republican, and it's really hard to be completely un represented these days as a Republican. Because there's very few Republicans that speak to what I believe is best for this country. Thanks for calling in Jessica Santa Cruz, California Independent Line. Jessica, please go ahead. Thank you again for having me. I just like to remark on the last lady said my father was a Republican. His whole life. He was a naval captain. He wrote speeches for Colin Powell, and he was the director of the L. A military compensation at Pentagon. So given that my mom being a Democrat, has been always kind of divided and really listening, and I just I would like to encourage people to kill, not feel terrible about the fact that we have A really awful person in office. We did not know this is going to go this way. And you know, we can only go forward from here. We have to just look at it and say Okay, this maybe was a mistake. But we are intelligent individuals and we have We're the United States of America. We pull ourselves up by our bootstraps. We care for one another, and we care about each other and we're going to be okay. As long as we can just stick together. And focus on what really is at hand right now, which is a health crisis. An economic crazy, Ah, housing crisis and apparently, fires are happening around us, too. It feels like the apocalypse these days, but we need to just trust That we can decide to pick the appropriate people who will lead us into a great future. Jessica, you're calling on the independent line who was your first choice in the primary? You know what I actually was and decided about Joe Biden. I didn't know if he had enough fire within him to really ignite people's interest. I think that tonight I was shown that he's up for the job. He conduce this And he could do it. Well, thank you for calling in Frank Dayton, Ohio Democrat please Go ahead. Give us your opinion about Joe Biden speech tonight. Oh, my gosh. So all I can say is these last four days have really invigorated a fire. And I think not only for me, but for the American public to vote for. Somebody that can bring back A certain level of expectation a certain level of Ah gravitas, a certain level of just Knowing and serving the people and upholding the Constitution and that right there makes a world of difference. And not only my world and those people that I know, but I think the world around us text from Debbie in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. Joe is going to have his work cut out for him Undoing the divisiveness of Trump, But I have faith that he could do it, and his speech was awesome. Darryl, Los Angeles Republican. Hi How you doing? Are you good? Yeah, I'm from Los Angeles and my opinion of this democratic things. This was a great Hollywood production. What does that matter? They didn't during this whole Democratic convention. They didn't say one thing about the police. They didn't say one thing about writing. I didn't say they talked about blue eyes matter. They didn't talk about that at all. Um And if are you? Nobody gave a good speech time. But the reality of the matter is if the guy is a flip flopper, and he's changing his mind, he got camel hair who he picked and being from California. I know what he what? That guy what she did she incarcerated African American men for smoking marijuana to the hundreds and then went on a radio program and said, Oh, yeah, I did smoke it and laughed about it. This is this is a joke. She changed that people are trying to say that she is a is a, um, you know, is a moderate baloney. She's Khushi was like the fourth most liberal senator. In the whole country. That's by an independent agency. Okay, Now you think you've critique the Democratic side. What's your enthusiasm level when it comes to President Trump? Oh, I'm 100% behind. I mean, yes, it is. You have you know, I'm not interested in style. You know if you remember sir, the old Charles Charles or the Tuna Fish commercial, where they said what or star kisses uninterested in style interested in substance. He may not. He's very brash. But guess what. All these talks about, Well, you know, were looked upon by dictators that he hasn't given up on any sanctions. He just snap back the sanctions against Iran. The Chinese are taking us to the cleaners, and millions of people have lost jobs that Joe Biden voted for his friends with the North American trade Agreement. You also have the Russians, you should say, Oh, he's in Putin's baloney, but they haven't changed any affection. Carol thank you for calling in this evening, President Trump has tweeted about Joe Biden speech in 47 years, Joe did none of the things of which he now speaks. He will never change. Just words. Carl's in Hamilton, Ohio, Democrat Carl, How do you think Joe Biden did tonight? Hey, I I have to say that I was, you know, on the fence, Not about who I'm voting for, but about my enthusiasm for Joe Biden. I'm I'm only 30. I consider myself a relatively young voter. Um I'm to the left of Joe Biden in all honesty, but As it pertains to this speech. I mean, I was just really blown away. I think he rose to the moment he rose to the occasion and that's what we need. Right now. We need a president who can rise to the occasion because he outlined. You know there are four crises there really more than four, therefore domestic crises. Right now that our country needs to fight and we need a leader who does have experience Donald Trump was elected because he was an outsider. Things have not gone well under Donald Trump's administration. The one thing that he was elected for was the economy and jobs. I'm in Ohio. Things are going great here. I'm a small business owner. Things being shut down our largely because of Donald Trump's poor handling of basically a scientific issue. He politicized scientific issue. Um, and this is something that under a competent administration Republican Democrat independent, competent administration. It would have been handled properly. Things would be approaching normal now, but in America things were still getting worse. Carl, look what kind of business to you and beach yet we'll reason what kind of business do you own? Um I own a fundraising business working with schools and youth sports organizations. Thank you, sir. Matt, Los Angeles Democrat this time Heimat? Yes..

"You've watched a minute of it You know that for yourself? If you really want to see If you really want a good sense, more objective sense of whether that's true or not. Just go looking at the commentary. Nobody out there is excited about their convention. Conventions. Are two things. They're an open house. You do an open house for the party and the neighbors get to come and pick up the house That's for sale on how the neighbors lived there that And they're a pep rally. Friday morning Pep Rally for the big game that night, Everybody gets excited. Bring in the band. You cheerlead. You get everybody pumped up and this is exciting and we're a team and we're in this together. The pep rally. Has served no function. Nobody's excited. And the open house is an embarrassment. Because the people on display or in embarrassment Bill Clinton. The me to president. Up there, speaking after never before seen photos, that's what the daily mail caused him. Of him getting a massage. From the Epstein accuser. Daily Mail showed Bill Clinton receiving the massage from Sean Tay Davies, who at the time was 22 during a trip on pedophile on a trip to on the pedophiles plane to Africa in 2002. Epstein associate Delaine Maxwell was arrested earlier this year on sex abuse charges reportedly encouraged Davies to give the former president of massage while they re fueled in Portugal during the trip. Davies has come forward as a victim of Epstein's, saying she was repeatedly raped by the convicted sex offender after Maxwell recruited her to work for him. Davey said of Epstein. Quote. The first encounter I had with him. He masturbated in front of me. And obviously that alone should have been enough for me never to come back, but the way that they were ableto orchestrate and manipulate. The situation led me to believe that something like that would never happen again, so I did go back. The second time. So here's Bill Clinton, who has said he didn't go to orgy Island and act like he didn't know Jeffrey Epstein. When in fact photos no prove he was lying. And, in fact, a guest on CNN said. How can How can they stand up? They're the Biden campaign and say We need dignity in order and morality and character in the White House. And you've got Bill Clinton. Up there speaking. And so they roll out Colin Powell. Colin Powell don't see the Republicans air are not even for Trump. Colin Powell hasn't supported a Republican president since 2004. And only then because that Republicans Ah, Daddy gave him his start. And because Powell was sending us into war in Iraq, this is the guy that was peddling the false story about WMD. I thought Democrats had a problem with that. Now he's a hero because he's a useful idiot. This is a guy who supported Barack Obama. No. Eight supported Barack Obama in 2012 supported Hillary Clinton in 2016, and now she's supporting their cohort Joe Biden. And the media is acting like that's a big deal, please Please spare me that. I was never a Colin Powell ever Republicans used to tall He's our guy. Why? Because he's black. Cause he wears a military uniform and looks nice in it. Why is he your guy? You don't even know what he stands for. We're going to talk in the next hour of the show today with a guy named Errol Webber. He's running against Karen Bass, who was thought to be Biden's choice for the vice presidential running mate until Kamala Harris campaign probably is who did it. Dropped a dime on her, and they showed that Karen Bass was a communist. Karen Bass is being She's a congressman. She's a nut. She's a Castro lover. She's thanks. Cuba's a great system when we should have it here. She's an extreme radical. She's being challenged in district outside of L. A. By a guy named Errol Webber. Who is a an immigrant to this country from Jamaica. And yes, he has the great accent. And he's a He's a rock ribbed conservative and let me tell you something. We don't play identity politics.

Spoiler alert. You should be very worried about how they cheat how the process works and what we could expect in November. How many changes we'll see. And you know, in Washington and Oregon. We've already lost that cause it's all mail in voting. We won't win. They're Republicans can't win statewide in Washington and Oregon as long as that's the case, and they're not going to change it.

And this is where you're going to see the poll numbers move because this late in the campaign and is widely understood. You can't drive up your positives. If someone likes you already because you're the president or the guy running against the president. Everybody likes you already likes you. But what you can do is you could drive up the other guys. Negatives. And you wait until the right time when that is most effective. I've told you before. President. Trump strategy was to wait to attack Biden because he was fearful they would replace Biden with someone stronger than Biden. There is a treasure trove of opposition research on Biden. Trump wanted Biden to be the nominee, and now they're starting to attack. The first line of attack is that Joe Biden is in serious decline. This isn't a political attack. This, I believe is the truth. This one's about 90 seconds, and then it ends with a kind of a very pro trump. But I think this is a very effective spot. Go ahead. He.

Powell: 'The Republican party has got to get a grip on itself'

"It's a rare pleasure to interview two of America's finest elder states people once but that is exactly the opportunity I had this week when I sat down with Colin Powell and Madeleine Albright both of them of course served as secretary of State Apollo under President George W Bush or bright under Bill Clinton I was invited to them on a stage in new Albany Ohio in front of a group of citizens members the military and first responders let's begin with General Powell talking about all the tumult in American politics today surrounding the whistle blower uh and that phone call between the presidents of America and Ukraine we have this situation in Washington with the preliminary investigation being done by the House of Representatives under Mrs Pelosi and you just gotta ask yourself where does this all go well WanNa go to constitutional way choose following the constitution and the law and she's created an organization within the House of Representatives to look into these things and that's what we ought to do but it's hard to look into it when the other side in the White House is cursing out everybody calling a member of Congress trader calling a guy who wrote this that he's something wrong with him he didn't write it we had a lawyer write it for him or he's a spy spy he's an intelligence officer somewhere in the United States government who sat down and wrote this out he didn't slip into news however he didn't go on television and discuss it he put it into the system like he was supposed to do you think he's a Patriot sure he is any reason he's not true this I used to see some of these things when they came in over the over the transient through the objection means of getting something up and I think he is a Patriot I don't see anything that suggests he's doing anything that is improper and as you know his paper has now come out after all the channels he didn't break free and go talk to the press he let the system handle itself and the paper that he put out has a lot of consistency with some of the things the White House put out so what we need to do is I hope get this investigation is inquiry done as quickly as possible and let's stop screaming at everybody and cursing people coyle calling people traders and calling them spies and using all of these names of degradation when all we're trying to do is find the answers so let's cooperate with each other in this in the Congress and get an answer to it and move on to you think Nancy Pelosi is doing the right thing absolutely and I think it was very interesting thing in listening to her when she talked about this I thought she was very measured and serious talked about the constitution and saw it as a process I think it wasn't easy because I think the nothing is easy in terms of making a decision like that but I she respects the institution I think we both have talked about the importance of the institution and the Constitution there is ah it's set up in a way that Congress has a responsibility here and I think the question is the one you asked what was this phone call about it is possible that a president will make a mistake in talking to some other leader on a issue that is state managed which is is why in fact you have other people on the phone and you can say you might WanNa have worded that differently and have somebody follow up this had nothing to do with state business as far and nobody kind of said anything about it except this man or woman that has been the whistle blower Colin what do you think the Republican Party's responsibility is your lifelong Republican you say that well let me put a different the Republican Party desperately wanted you to be it's presidential candidate ninety ninety six allows you you were very important figuring the Republican Party get I'm actually right I'm not gonNA dogs in the case but as such an important republican do you worry that the party is putting putting party or maybe even and trump before country started saying I had no political affiliation during my first thirty five years in government and the army as a career military officer had no party and it was only when I left and there was attention being given to me about running politics that I said no it's not me and identified myself as a Republican but also made it clear to people I was Republican who's Ronald Reagan's national security adviser I was Republican who work George Herbert Walker Bush and worked for George W Bush I'm a moderate Republican who believes that we should have strong foreign policies wrong defense policy but we have to look for people and we ought to work hard to making sure we're one country one team and so on that basis I call myself okay but in the state of junior you really nothing you can be anything you want any day of the week what do you think do you think that DNC question Republican party has got to get a grip on itself right now Republican leaders and members of the Congress both Senate and the House are holding back because they're defied of what will happen any one of them if they speak out what will they lose a primary I don't know why that's such a disaster but literally the primary and so they they need to get a grip and when they see things that are not right they need to say something about it because our foreign policy is shambles right now title judgment and I see things happening that are hard to understand a couple of weeks ago the president put a circle around Southeast Alabama it saying that it's going to get hit by hurricane we put it on top of the meteorological prediction and the meteorologists said no no no no and in my time and her time one of us would have gone to the presidency was president screwed up so we've got to fix it and we'll put out a correction you know what they did this time they ordered the Commerce Department to go out and back up whatever the president misled this country supposed to run and congress is one of the petitions that should be doing something about this all parts of Congress the media has a role to play we all have enrolled by we've got our number the remember the all of these pieces are part of our

I see where you're coming from and where you're you're how you're coming at him. that's clear. Colin Powell's not wrong. is not wrong it is a shame. it's another sign of the quickening. race relations appear to be. other than in. all lawful ways or legislative ways race relations in the hearts of people. seem to be a hardening in worsening. so Colin Powell's not wrong about that. seems to be a far worse. and what difference does it make whether you talk about some crazy black man who takes a gun and shoots up white people. watch for the other way around. so anybody who's killing or maiming. or burning because of racial or ethnic differences. is all about in the same boat as far as I'm concerned. so I don't fully disagree with what Colin Powell said. and you know I mean really it is true in in a lot of ways race relations in America are on that we're we're we're not doing very well here. our way. the. but it is just one more sign it's one more thing on on the pile. but he is just one more so I think rush once made a. a list did any of fifty absolute truths I can't remember what it was he made a list of somebody had to make a list of the quickening signs and there are at least fifty. east of the Rockies you're on the air hello Mister bell yes I enjoyed listening to your gas I thought he was very interesting and very sincere well he was but he was. very sincere there's no question about it okay now all the horrible stories that so you've been mentioning on the show you know if the book of revelation is very deep but it's very prophetic and that people fail to mention about the ten. and to come to power seven and then and then they'll give their strength to the beast and give authority to the beast and they'll be one mind and then the Bible also says about people having the nature of the beast and I think and I hope I'm wrong that act but I think that's a lot of times those kings and queens are in NATO countries of western Europe and they came up with the United Nations and the United States and now it's becoming more very militaristic it's becoming like and I hate to use this expression gang warfare like what happened in the Persian Gulf in Iraq and I I certainly wasn't the Saddam Hussein I think he deliberately set his people up but still in all when you think of fifteen and and the whole war was the war against Saddam Hussein all you heard but nothing happened to Saddam Hussein all right the people without the state at ten fifteen twenty countries ganging up on one country missed about all right thank you I've got a couple things to say about that I did see the sixty minutes piece on Saddam Hussein. his double. and it was is it Saddam's son and his double. and they told the story of the son who goes out and roams the streets of Baghdad. for women. and when he finds a woman that he likes. as in the case of a honeymoon couple. she. according to that program has the husband beaten or shot. takes the wife away to his hotel room and rapes her. and then instructs his goons to go out and and run her over. out with the car. while. now I sat and I watch that and I thought my god. debauchery at its greatest. but how does that differ. marginally. from this story we're getting from Los Angeles this morning does anybody want to comment on that. from this story getting fired as I was at what I saw Sunday. is it really any more horrible than what is going on right here right now. really anymore more than what is how do we separate ourselves from Iraq that easily and say they're so bad were so good are weak. or is it a universal quickening. stay right there we'll be right back..

I have more questions. I got burned by the Iraq scenario. I believe the anti on Iraq. It was wrong. Well show us the evidence European nations are demanding more evidence, there's been no evidence. There's some doubt being expressed by some of our allies about the quality of. The intelligence. Let's face. It says falsehoods every day, particularly out of the White House, and that has undermined our credit believable. These are the people have been swearing by intelligence in two and a half years now when the intelligence community is telling us something about Iran here come these people. Well, you guys miss us during the Iraq war about weapons of mass destruction for two and a half years. They've told us we cannot west of the intelligence community. It's a kin to being unamerican unpatriotic. How dare we, we cannot aspera these people this way, we cannot cast doubt on these people. They are what's separating us and keeping us free.

Now, we move onto Phil Mudd, the former C I A deputy director or some such thing counter terrorists center, deputy director vary was on CNN this morning. New day question seems that the situation is getting more precarious. I wonder if you can tell us what the US strategy with Iran is, I can't, we have a nuclear deal. We stepped away from the Europeans are saying, why did you do that? The Iranians are complying. I think the globe is looking at us saying, we don't wanna go with you, because you're threatening stability in the region for a country that is Ron who was on the path to doing nothing on nukes. I think a lot of people are saying what the heck is up with this. Can I translate this, this is the good old standby? You can count on it line of thinking in the post. World War, Two order, where the United States is always suspect. The United States is to blame the United States should never Huffman puff. United States should never project its power United States, should never display. Superpower status United States needs to always be humbled United States. And that's exactly what this is. We don't want to go with you, because you're threatening stability in the region like we're threatening the stability in the region with Iran. We're threatening blame us. It's always. That's what Trump is turned upside down to these people cannot deal with it in Trump's world. We're not to blame. It's not our fault. We're not the bad guys the Iranians are the bad guys and giving them nuclear weapons in the future was a stupid thing to do and we're not gonna do it. These people have had their policy turned right back against them. They can't stand it. They can't deal with it, and that's why they're so hypocritical for two and a half years. The intelligence agencies are in fallible. But now the intelligence ages are telling something that Trump likes in the intelligence agencies should not be listened to we can't trust them these people know how they sound a nation.

Former Deputy Secretary of State Bill Burns Talks 2003 Iraq

"And former State Department officials seem to describe working at St. in the Trump era is almost a traumatic experience. And I imagine them many of them were listening wonder what it might be like on the other side. And frankly, if institution if the building will fully recover so trying to think of a different period of time for state, then might have been equally as challenging, and I thought of two thousand three when then secretary of State, Colin Powell went to the UN to make the case for war in Iraq. And he gave a presentation based on intelligence there was just catastrophically wrong. I knew you greatly admired Secretary Powell you worked at the State Department before during and after that period of time. How did the agency the State Department bounce back from such a difficult moment? It was a rough time, and you know, and you know that period. Well, Ben from your work on the Iraq study group of victory Baker in with Lee Hamilton, it was a it was a painful period, when you know, I I've seen lots of moments of differences between agencies, you know, during different eras in Washington. But that was the the most intense the differences between Powell State Department Rumsfeld's Pentagon differences with Vice President Cheney staff and the White House, and it was a another collection of allusions, which led us down. You know, what truly was a tragic path in Iraq in two thousand three. You know, we tried to be honest about our concerns again being self critical. I wasn't I certainly was not effective in winning any of those battles. You know within the administration in that era? Remember at one point Ryan Crocker who was one of my colleagues in the near east bureau in the State Department and other guy named David Pearson. I. Spent a couple of hours brainstorming about everything we sought could go wrong if the United States essentially on its own invaded, Iraq and toppled Saddam because our concern was always less about the military challenge and more about managing the day after in Iraq. And so we we put together a memo, it was really more kinda hastily collection. You know, put together collection of horrible 's more than a coherent memo. But just kind of listing all the things that we could go wrong, and it was our antidote to the incredibly rosy assumptions that were coming out of some of the civilians in the Pentagon, and you know, some folks in the White House, and it was imperfect. We got a lot of things wrong. But you know, I've always thought you got to be honest as a career official about our concerns, and my biggest professional regret to this day is that I didn't push as hard as I should have. And certainly not as effectively as I should have.

"Jobs if think back to when colin powell was chairman of the joint chiefs in 1992 and 1993 and he actively resisted president clinton who then wanted to integrate gay and lesbian and bisexual troops into the ranks in hindsight that looks incredibly wrongheaded and light colin powell was himself on the wrong side of history but he succeeded because he had also carve out that space to disagree with the president and and that normally for a little while and i think it was a bad thing i think they're probably other instances where the trust uh diminishment that has occurred between senior military leaders in the white house will take some time to be rebuilt and then of course there are broader president has done such as diminish alliances and and relationships with foreign intelligence agencies the these things will clearly outlived the presidency and and will need to be rebuilt by the 46 president do you to get moving living i worried about worry mountains it seems to me and you're you're the expert on this but it seems to me that a lot of these structures we've been talking about our new they're pretty deeply embedded in washington culture and went that even when one has a on more responsible more traditional president rely they're likely to snap back at least in terms of the traditional back and forth bring depending on the traditional norms that you know get watered down or violated at the margins but still hold on the core i guess i'm wondering about that sort of four four years of this type of behaviour and the impact on younger truck to rise up the ranks and maybe don't you need ideals as important than don't internalize than his watch is out is that a possibility.
