um election coming up in november uh
04:20
namely
04:21
uh cheated mail-in cheating voting um
04:24
ballot harvesting many other things and

she envisions
04:28
a nothing but chaos uh in terms of
04:32
there will be court battles galore after
04:35
the election all over the place
04:37
last month we had alex newman in the new

05:10
our own private server page
05:11
and all the webinars with so if you’ve

05:14
somebody uh a previous webinar maybe
05:17
something alex newman something from
05:19
brandon darby uh catherine angerbrook
05:22
just go back click on the webinar and
05:24
you can watch it at your leisure
05:25
it’s all there for you our next webinar
05:28
is on sunday august 30th
05:29
at 7 30. uh we are going to have john
05:32
graves
05:33
and um with that let me bring in i’ll
05:34
pull up his website
05:36
let me bring in jim who can explain who
05:38
he is
05:39
john graves has done some
05:42
amazing work he has a website
05:47
called vision america where
05:51
he discusses describes
05:55
the fact that there’s
05:58
over 30 million christians
06:02
who are not voting today and that is a
06:05
game changer
06:06
it’s absolutely inexcusable the
06:08
christians
06:09
not be involved in the election process
06:13
and if they were they could see
06:17
our moving back
06:20
in the direction of the judeo-christian
06:24
foundations that are
06:25
what made it great and that would
06:28
reflect
06:29
the values that christians profess
06:33
to believe in and so it’s
06:36
to me it’s incomprehensible and
06:38
inexcusable
06:39
that there’s that many christians not
06:42
voting
06:43
there’s over 15 million that are not
06:46
even registered to vote
06:48
and john’s effort at vision america
06:52
is an attempt to
06:55
find identify and get those people
06:59
to vote vision america is a network of
07:03
pastors john
07:04
is a 30-year pastor
07:08
and himself and so it’s a very unique
07:12
organization uh he also has
07:16
20 28 pastors and a million voices those
07:20
are uh really parts of vision america
07:24
but the 2028 pastors it
07:28
comes from acts 20 28 which says
07:32
uh therefore take heed to yourselves and
07:34
to all the flock among the holy spirit
07:37
among which the holy spirit has made you
07:39
overseers to shepherd the church of god
07:41
which he purchased with his own blood
07:44
so 2028 pastors is an effort
07:48
to get pastors involved in the political
07:51
process
07:52
and then million voices is the effort to
07:55
get
07:56
christians uh voters
08:00
involved and it’s a very important thing
08:02
that he’s doing
08:03
and he has an amazing presentation and
08:07
i would uh strongly recommend that
08:10
you all tune in for that very important
08:14
uh presentation because the most
08:17
important thing we can do
08:19
between now and november is get people
08:22
registered to vote
08:24
and get them to the polls to vote
08:27
uh because we not only have to overcome
08:30
the massive voter registration effort
08:33
that the left
08:34
has been is engaged in and has been
08:37
engaged in but we
08:38
also are going to have to overcome the
08:40
numbers that they created by the massive
08:43
vote fraud
08:44
that they’re going to attempt to impose
08:46
on us for this fall
08:47
so it’s incumbent on all of us
08:51
to work together to get that done and
08:53
john provides
08:54
some very very very effective tools
08:58
for doing that and so now
09:01
tonight we have brad johnson
09:05
he is the president of americans for
09:07
intelligence reform
09:09
and i just want to share with you
09:12
we you know we are very lucky we get
09:15
some amazing people
09:17
and rad is one of those people
09:22
he was a senior operations officer and
09:25
chief of station with the central
09:28
intelligence
09:29
agency’s directory of operations and
09:32
chief of station in more than one place
09:34
and some pretty big hot spots
09:37
he’s served domestically and abroad with
09:39
numerous assignments
09:41
often during periods of armed conflict
09:43
he served overseas and direct support
09:46
in the war against terrorism he’s a
09:48
certified senior
09:50
expert in counterintelligence issues
09:52
with extensive direct
09:54
experience in the field we’re talking to
09:56
the real
09:58
article here tonight folks and the
10:01
mission of americans for intelligence
10:03
reform
10:04
we are in desperately need of support of
10:07
reform
10:08
uh intelligence is in my mind the most
10:11
important function uh of our
10:15
national defense infrastructure
10:20
you know sun tzu says
10:24
if you know yourself and you know your
10:27
enemy you can win all battles
10:29
if you know yourself or know your enemy
10:31
but don’t know yourself or vice versa
10:33
you can win some if you know neither
10:36
yourself nor
10:37
your enemy you will lose every time and
10:39
we are in the position right now
10:41
where we know neither ourselves nor our
10:44
enemy
10:45
so his goal is to de-politicize and
10:48
de-weaponize our intelligence agencies
10:51
which we’ve seen
10:52
demonstrated over the last four years to
10:55
restore the ability of intelligence
10:57
workers to identify
10:58
who our enemies are by eliminating
11:01
political correctness and other
11:03
ideologies from intelligence analysis
11:05
and i can tell you i know that from
11:07
person experience
11:09
that that is a huge problem cia as it is
11:12
everywhere else throughout our
11:14
government and throughout our society
11:16
to improve educational standards within
11:18
each intelligence agency
11:21
to require of all political appointees
11:23
to upper level positions and
11:24
intelligence agents
11:26
to intend series of briefings and
11:28
classes given by subject matter
11:30
experts so they’re not just political
11:33
appointees that are know nothing
11:36
and restore the practice of espionage to
11:39
the cia
11:40
so that adequate human intelligence can
11:43
be provided to the analysts at
11:44
headquarters we don’t have a human
11:46
intelligence function right now folks
11:48
and there are so many more things and i
11:50
don’t want to spend a lot of time on it
11:52
but hopefully brad is going to go over
11:55
some of those
11:56
vulnerabilities we have with you as well
11:59
as bringing us up to date
12:01
on a lot of what’s going on in the
12:03
intelligence world
12:04
so without further ado let me bring on
12:08
right now brad johnson president
12:11
of americans for intelligence reform
12:13
brad it is
12:14
so great to have you here tonight thanks
12:17
so much for coming on with us
12:19
it’s a real pleasure i’m uh i’m happy to
12:21
be here this evening to join you
12:24
thanks for having me thanks for coming
12:27
all right well listen i guess what i
12:28
could do that might be kind of
12:30
interesting is to put a little
12:31
perspective to it just kind of go back
12:32
to the beginning and
12:34
go through the steps that led us to
12:35
where we are today which is
12:37
an absolute mess but uh as most people
12:40
are probably aware the
12:42
the cia was essentially founded uh based
12:45
on
12:45
oss uh the office of strategic services
12:48
out of world war
12:49
ii and unfortunately we were caught up
12:51
very short cost a lot of lives along the
12:53
way by not being prepared with
12:54
intelligence in world war
12:56
ii and that lesson was was learned the
12:59
hard way but it was learned
13:00
and so eventually the cia was formed and
13:03
much of the rank and file came from the
13:05
navy
13:06
because of all the lessons learned with
13:08
the code breaking and so on in world war
13:10
ii the pacific theater was was uh
13:13
many of the victories were really based
13:15
on good
13:16
intelligence so that took large numbers
13:18
of people they were brought over into
13:20
the cia and
13:21
much of the leadership came out of army
13:24
oss but of course that was much smaller
13:26
and that was how the cia was formed in
13:28
the 50s
13:29
and uh from there there were many many
13:32
lessons
13:33
to be learned and operating in difficult
13:35
environments like represented in
13:37
in back in stalin’s ussr and places like
13:41
that where we had to learn to operate
13:43
under those what we call today denied
13:46
area operations very difficult operating
13:48
environments and
13:49
of course also something that that we’d
13:51
always known and learned and worked
13:53
with were areas where there was a lot of
13:55
armed violence going on
13:57
or fighting of one sort or another and
14:00
uh
14:00
we built upon those lessons and i i
14:03
often refer to that
14:04
if that’s that’s kind of where that uh
14:07
you earn
14:07
those lessons through blood sweat and
14:09
tears and i mean that very literally
14:10
because it’s a dangerous business and
14:12
and people will get killed along the way
14:14
that all began the change
14:16
began uh back in the 70s with the
14:19
frank church commission frank church was
14:21
out of idaho
14:23
and he held up uh hearings on the hill
14:26
and uh was talking about corruption and
14:28
so on and it was also
14:30
melded in with the fbi who’d been
14:32
following people around
14:33
uh that they probably shouldn’t have
14:35
because it was based on political issues
14:37
and so on so
14:38
the church commission started up and
14:40
unfortunately it’s like
14:41
so many things are especially today but
14:44
uh churches was intending to launch a
14:46
presidential campaign and so
14:48
he wanted to build a big name for
14:50
himself so he was drawing it on
14:52
all this on and on and bringing in more
14:54
people and taking longer to do and was
14:56
was trying to cover as much air as space
14:58
as he could whether it was
15:00
important to do or helpful to do or not
15:03
because it was a self-serving uh task
15:05
from his perspective
15:07
from there we had a lot of restrictions
15:10
put on intelligence and fbi and other
15:12
places within the government
15:13
there were some useful elements but uh
15:15
all in all it really
15:16
cut back on what the capabilities were
15:19
from intelligence and that was where the
15:20
decline actually began
15:23
from there uh jimmy carter got elected
15:25
we had stanfield turner put in as the
15:27
director of the cia
15:29
and what was the first thing he did he
15:30
fired a whole bunch of people
15:32
and uh the next day it was it was a
15:35
black thursday is what it was known as
15:37
because so many people
15:38
got their pink slip and were taken out
15:40
of the building and the next day
15:42
about an equal number of people uh just
15:45
quit
15:46
because they saw what was happening and
15:47
they didn’t want to put up with it
15:48
anymore and were
15:50
had been able to retire for a long time
15:52
so for a relatively small
15:54
organization the cia’s not like the
15:56
military where the
15:57
different uh army of course being the
15:59
largest it’s it’s a huge by comparison
16:01
to the
16:02
cia so it’s just a relatively very small
16:04
number of people to have several
16:06
thousand
16:06
walk out uh the cia never recovered from
16:09
it now
16:10
there was some dead weight that was that
16:11
was taken out at the same time but
16:13
the agency never recovered in a lot of
16:15
areas
16:17
and uh from there and although it was
16:19
attempted and
16:20
probably the only real serious attempt
16:22
to build back up the cia
16:24
took place under president reagan and he
16:26
brought in an old oss hand that had been
16:28
his chief of staff and that was the
16:30
person he put in charge of the cia and
16:32
that was
16:33
a very short small golden period where
16:35
we had a lot of rebuilding and
16:37
uh taking place and capabilities added
16:39
back in and
16:40
uh and intelligence got a little bit
16:42
better after that uh the really the
16:44
the end started then when uh president
16:47
clinton was elected
16:49
and this was when all of this do more
16:51
with less and glide path and getting rid
16:53
of a lot of the operations people
16:55
they were trying to wind those people
16:57
out and they did something that was
16:59
uh had one of those unintended effects
17:01
it was a political move
17:03
but what they started to do was combine
17:06
co-locate and combine the analytical
17:09
with the operational
17:10
now it’s kind of a closed world so i
17:12
know that doesn’t necessarily strike
17:14
anyone as important
17:15
but the operations end of things where i
17:17
worked
17:18
is the espionage arm of the cia
17:22
and that is where we go out and recruits
17:24
spies in
17:25
countries or organizations that are
17:27
dangerous to us or represent some sort
17:29
of threat to national
17:30
security or there’s things there that we
17:32
need to know for our own national
17:33
security
17:35
and the analysts then traditionally
17:37
we’re always kept completely separate
17:39
and the reason is
17:40
is you don’t want cross colonization you
17:43
want that
17:44
analyst to be pristine completely aloof
17:47
and above or
17:48
separate from the collection process
17:51
because as soon as you cross contaminate
17:55
that analyst then will know or see
17:58
or have some connection feel some sort
18:00
of connection to the source of the
18:02
information
18:03
and that’s the worst thing to do and
18:05
that was all implemented as a policy
18:08
under uh the clinton years and we
18:11
started to see things like
18:12
analysts meet with reporting sources and
18:15
that means that they’re like i say
18:16
there’s an emotional bond
18:18
they have more trust in what they’re
18:20
told
18:21
versus all of the information they find
18:23
out in the rest of the analytical world
18:25
and that was where we really started to
18:26
see politics come into the agency’s
18:29
reporting it
18:30
it destroyed much of our capability for
18:32
reporting
18:33
there was still good information being
18:35
collected although we were beginning to
18:37
get rid of
18:38
a lot of the operations officers the
18:40
guys like myself who were
18:42
out recruiting spies for the united
18:44
states of america
18:46
and that process continued and there was
18:49
also a secondary part of it that’s
18:50
extremely important
18:52
and what happened was clinton basically
18:53
uh brought in his own people very
18:55
liberal people
18:56
in all of the leadership positions and
18:59
in the pipeline positions
19:01
and so what happened now there are a lot
19:03
of controls over how people are promoted
19:06
and uh you know all of the different
19:08
protected classes
19:10
none of those issues can can be
19:11
discussed so when a panel meets and
19:13
convenes to promote
19:15
somebody that’s done blindfolded in
19:18
essence you don’t know the race or
19:20
religion or any of those types of
19:22
information on the individual being
19:23
promoted
19:25
and that’s basically federal government
19:27
wide but what is
19:28
not controlled is what job you’re given
19:32
and that pipeline then leadership
19:34
controls who gets what job
19:36
and how promotions are handed out are
19:39
based on those jobs you have
19:41
so while the panels were fairly clean
19:44
whatever
19:45
jobs were handed out that are required
19:48
you can’t get promoted many times unless
19:49
you have a certain type of job
19:51
and those certain types of jobs were
19:53
only handed out to trusted people
19:55
so that pipeline in state department cia
19:58
nsa fbi doj
20:00
that pipeline to leadership has been
20:02
controlled
20:03
almost 100 even back in from the clinton
20:06
days
20:07
now moving continuing to move forward
20:10
that was
20:10
fully consolidated during the uh
20:13
president obama years
20:14
and now basically all leadership at
20:16
senior levels
20:17
is very political because only one
20:20
political perspective
20:22
has been allowed into that pipeline
20:24
getting the right jobs
20:25
that move those people up into positions
20:28
of of authority and leadership within
20:29
those agencies
20:31
that is exactly the basis of why
20:35
we find ourselves in the position we are
20:37
today where you had senior leadership at
20:39
fbi
20:40
doj cia who knows all else
20:43
who clearly were lying in the fisa
20:45
process
20:46
these guys are probably going to be
20:48
charged with uh
20:49
fraud or perjury for what they did in
20:52
that
20:52
we know from these uh memos and emails
20:55
that have been
20:56
declassified and released by senator
20:59
graham
20:59
from the judiciary on the senate side
21:02
that for example peter strzok who is
21:04
head of the cia division for the fbi
21:06
very senior position uh that he knew
21:09
long before this stuff was used to try
21:11
and and uh
21:13
you know connect trump with some sort of
21:15
illegal activity to russia
21:17
he knew long in advance of all of that
21:19
that all of the information contained in
21:20
that was false
21:21
but yet went ahead anyway that’s that
21:23
political corruption that we find in our
21:25
leadership
21:25
and that comes exactly out of the
21:28
process that i’m talking about where you
21:29
only have this
21:30
one perspective that’s allowed to move
21:32
up and that’s and that’s contaminated
21:35
everything now
21:36
uh the worst of it is yet to come as
21:38
we’re going through this but that was
21:40
under the cia director
21:41
under uh president obama and that’s john
21:45
brennan and what he did was
21:46
implemented a program which he called
21:48
the modernization now in that
21:50
modernization program there were some
21:51
technical aspects that were improved
21:53
upon that were the positive
21:55
and he used that as cover for doing what
21:57
he really wanted to do
21:58
in my opinion and that is get rid of the
22:01
operations
22:02
cadre the operations directorate which
22:04
he did do
22:06
so the cadre that i came out of those
22:08
people
22:09
that were out overseas risking life and
22:11
limb
22:12
to recruit uh assets to recruit
22:15
reporting sources that would then tell
22:17
us in the united states what was going
22:19
on
22:19
that was eliminated and now it’s been a
22:22
long time so
22:23
that that previous cadre of people the
22:26
senior people that were moving up like
22:28
myself and being chiefs of stations
22:30
the ones that were teaching all the
22:31
younger people off the line what to do
22:33
have long been gone now i i often say
22:37
everybody good is gone out of the cia
22:40
and
22:40
with that uh cadre gone
22:44
you don’t have the training pipeline
22:47
where someone starts out as a first
22:49
tour officer a junior officer and
22:51
there’s more senior people there that
22:52
teach them what to do and bring them
22:54
along
22:55
and then you get sort of the mid-level
22:56
people that have had three or four or
22:57
five tours overseas and
22:59
then to the senior people that have been
23:00
out more and that pipeline of experience
23:04
is fundamental you cannot produce
23:07
uh fully effective chiefs of station and
23:10
senior people
23:11
in the operations cadre if you don’t
23:13
have an operations cadre
23:14
it’s a simple thing it’s like almost any
23:16
other skill set
23:17
to really become efficient at it it
23:19
takes years of learning and practice
23:22
and failure and success and all of those
23:23
things that go into it
23:25
that was eliminated under john brennan
23:27
which i i have to say i
23:29
i consider that uh you know that
23:32
damage that was done to our collection
23:34
capabilities to be
23:36
akin to to treason i i really believe
23:38
that what he did
23:39
was on purpose to damage the cia as much
23:42
as he could as we know
23:44
philosophically he was from the extreme
23:46
left and had
23:47
in the past as he reported voted for a
23:49
communist and
23:51
that is a reflection of his views his
23:54
political views to be
23:56
anti-cia in essence and by the way
23:59
james comey the former director of the
24:00
fbi had also in his youth voted
24:03
communist interesting that
24:04
chief of the fbi and chief of the cia
24:06
would have both been
24:08
active supporting communist uh
24:10
candidates
24:11
and uh yet uh rose to those levels of
24:13
leadership within
24:14
the federal government and at a time
24:16
where political corruption was so
24:18
bad that that we’ve had all of these
24:20
false claims
24:21
knowingly false claims you used against
24:24
the president of the united states to
24:25
target him
24:26
illegally so that’s really kind of has
24:29
has brought us to the to this current
24:31
mist that we’re in and it’s how they did
24:33
it now some of the things that need to
24:35
be done to repair some of this
24:37
is first of all uh you’re gonna have to
24:38
gut leadership in all of these
24:40
organizations because uh they’re simply
24:42
untrustworthy
24:43
you cannot trust people at the
24:45
leadership of these organizations these
24:47
federal agencies
24:48
when their political perspective is so
24:50
narrow because what they do is they
24:53
judge all of the situations
24:54
through that political prison which is
24:56
precisely what they’ve done with
24:58
president trump
24:59
they hate president trump and in this
25:01
little narrow view of theirs that’s
25:03
that’s so political
25:05
using these traitorous means that breaks
25:09
every oath they’ve ever made to uphold
25:11
the constitution united states and
25:12
protect
25:13
the the united states from enemies both
25:15
domestic and foreign
25:17
breaks all the oaths that they’ve ever
25:19
made and yet they’ve done it
25:20
and they believe in it and they’ll stand
25:22
by it because of that little narrow
25:24
prison
25:24
from which they view the world including
25:27
what was done here what we need
25:29
are people that are genuine and will
25:30
actually uphold the constitution in the
25:32
united states
25:33
and that cannot be you can’t get that
25:36
out of who’s there
25:38
so you have to change who’s there and
25:40
then begin to begin to start to change
25:42
those cultures and uh one of the things
25:45
that
25:46
absolutely has to be done is a similar
25:48
the way the promotion panels are done
25:50
something similar needs to be in
25:52
implemented for who gets what job
25:54
it needs to be done purely on merit and
25:58
the
25:58
the in the case of the cia the
26:00
operations cadre needs to be reinstated
26:03
so that you have a pipeline of
26:05
experience where you can bring up these
26:07
people so that they’re able to
26:08
handle these situations and what’s
26:10
happened is without that
26:12
this allows the cia and this is what has
26:15
happened at state department and
26:16
everybody else
26:17
they become heavily bureaucratized so
26:20
those people
26:21
out overseas doing the job
26:24
basically uh don’t do anything
26:27
and they except for follow orders that
26:29
come out of washington dc
26:31
so the people on the ground the ones who
26:34
actually
26:34
should know what’s going on and direct
26:37
the ship
26:38
if you will those are the ones that have
26:40
no input and all the input comes out of
26:42
the bowels of bureaucracy
26:43
and what do those battles of bureaucracy
26:45
direct people to do
26:47
and that is political issues so
26:49
everything now that we do is political
26:51
uh the bureaucracy has destroyed the
26:53
vast majority of our
26:54
our capabilities we see many signs of
26:57
this even within the military which is
26:59
a great danger although uh to his credit
27:02
president trump has done a great deal
27:04
to bring back the military and reinvest
27:06
in the military
27:07
unfortunately we haven’t seen this
27:09
happen outside of that
27:11
certainly uh almost no changes have been
27:13
made at the uh at the fbi we have new
27:15
leadership
27:16
at doj but uh it’s very slow to move
27:19
because all that senate approval and of
27:20
course the democrats fight it
27:22
tooth and nail and and basically are
27:24
trying to delay as long as they can’t i
27:25
can on
27:26
absolutely every position including
27:29
doj positions and judges and all those
27:32
things so
27:33
it’s it’s gotten us into a mess and um
27:35
i’m not sure that the political will
27:37
exists
27:38
even with president trump uh to try and
27:42
fix these things because it’s an
27:44
enormous problem but certainly
27:45
there are things that could be done for
27:47
example
27:48
uh taking the dni director of national
27:51
intelligence who’s
27:52
recently appointed and move him over to
27:55
the cia consolidate analysis into there
27:57
but move operations out and put it into
27:59
a brand new organization
28:01
that only does operations to make that
28:03
separation
28:04
between the analytical arm and the
28:06
operations arm
28:08
absolutely hard and fast and that’s
28:10
going to be one of the most important
28:11
things that could be done
28:12
there’s other solutions that would be
28:14
similar but that something along those
28:16
lines would be one of the most important
28:17
things that could ever be done
28:19
to try and take the politics out of
28:22
intelligence and at this point it’s it’s
28:25
it’s almost a joke to the rest of the
28:27
world in intelligence
28:28
circles the cia and intelligence in the
28:31
united states is a laughingstock
28:33
and i i there’s a finish this up with a
28:36
there’s a four-year document every
28:38
quadrennial document that comes out
28:40
every four years
28:41
and it it’s done in conjunction with uh
28:44
the new president
28:45
uh or reelected president taking office
28:48
uh
28:49
every four years after elections in this
28:51
most recent one that was done
28:53
after in early 2017 it came out with
28:56
president trump being sworn as president
28:58
i read through that don’t waste your
29:00
time there’s nothing in there
29:01
particularly useful or interesting or
29:02
you know it’s not a great read
29:04
but just going through it there were
29:05
several there were two things that i
29:07
find
29:07
deeply alarming out of that one it’s
29:10
clearly a globalist
29:11
oriented document and this document
29:14
that’s supposed to be the
29:15
the a planning document for intelligence
29:18
for four years
29:19
produced by all 17 agencies intelligence
29:22
related agencies in the united states
29:24
government government
29:27
they put this together and this
29:28
globalist view is one of the most
29:31
important themes of this that the united
29:33
states
29:33
has to become more in tune with
29:36
globalism now if that’s not political
29:38
nothing is
29:39
the other thing that was that was
29:40
stressed a great deal is
29:42
global warming now global warming i find
29:46
you know if you believe in those things
29:47
i think it’s pure fiction without
29:49
any basis in science whatsoever there is
29:52
no evidence to support it at all
29:54
and a great deal of evidence that
29:56
contradicts
29:57
global warming as a man-made issue but
30:00
if you want to believe in those things
30:01
that’s great go ahead and believe in it
30:03
globalism and global warming
30:05
great but those are political those are
30:07
political
30:08
they are not intelligence issues and yet
30:11
this document
30:12
produced that’s supposed to guide
30:13
intelligence for the united states of
30:15
america
30:16
for a four-year period and further out
30:18
into the future
30:19
is all about politics and what’s not
30:22
particularly stressed in that
30:24
you know the foreign powers that are a
30:26
difficult problem for the united states
30:27
of america and terrorism
30:28
terrorism got short shift in this report
30:30
well you know terrorists
30:32
kill people and that is a real danger
30:35
that’s out there now there’s others and
30:37
certainly russia china and north korea
30:39
iran uh
30:40
and then i would add to the list it’s
30:42
not greatly discussed turkey but
30:44
there there are those sorts of problems
30:45
that are real and things that have to be
30:47
faced and taken care of and intelligence
30:49
could do a great deal
30:51
to help the united states of america and
30:53
our national security
30:55
and defend all the other institutions
30:57
there’s a lot of those efforts by
30:59
by enemy intelligence services to as
31:01
we’ve seen
31:02
to attack our research to attack our our
31:05
uh private sector businesses that are
31:08
producing
31:09
interesting inventions to go after our
31:11
research institutes
31:12
to go after our university and high
31:15
school and even grade school systems
31:17
they are attacking our education system
31:20
for their own benefit
31:21
and it’s across the board and all of
31:23
that needs to be combated at every level
31:26
and as i said
31:27
it can’t be done with who’s there this
31:29
has to be fixed it’s a serious problem
31:32
it’s been getting people killed for a
31:33
number of years now it’s going to
31:35
continue to get people killed
31:37
and it’s going to make the united states
31:38
blind at a time
31:41
when the world’s becoming a more
31:42
dangerous place not a less dangerous
31:45
place
31:45
and in the face of that why would we
31:47
want to blind ourselves we need to make
31:49
ourselves
31:50
better at intelligence not worse
31:53
here we are holy cow we got 14 questions
31:59
a lot of questions here brad um okay
32:03
some of them were kind of general like
32:05
how can we better inform and expose
32:07
violent marxist movements like blm
32:14
i think that that’s an excellent
32:15
question and if i may i would say that
32:18
the the problem with things like that is
32:20
essentially political will
32:21
and we have a very brave president who’s
32:24
willing to stand up but he’s essentially
32:26
fighting on his own and there’s very
32:28
little support for the president he
32:29
needs the support
32:31
i’m hoping and this is one of the things
32:32
certainly i’m moving forward pushing at
32:34
americans for intelligence reform
32:36
and that is get people in that support
32:38
the president and i’m not talking about
32:40
people that are sycophants for the
32:42
president what i’m talking about is
32:44
patriots that agree with his goals
32:47
and want to help them succeed that’s
32:49
what the president needs and i hope
32:51
i hope he’s learned that lessons now and
32:53
uh after winning a big
32:55
election here coming up in november i
32:57
think uh i think he’ll start to move
32:59
that direction sure hope so um how badly
33:02
penetrated is the cia
33:05
by the chinese the iranians and the
33:08
muslim brotherhood
33:09
claire asks that’s claire lopez former
33:14
hi claire how are you doing well
33:17
i certainly i think we’ve seen that the
33:20
muslim brotherhood is at many levels of
33:22
government and that was
33:23
ushered in by uh by former president
33:25
obama
33:26
and many of those people are still
33:28
around at all sorts of levels in all
33:29
sorts of agencies so i mean there’s no
33:31
question that’s a serious problem
33:33
and if they’re gaining information and
33:35
feeding it back
33:37
who where does that go well certainly
33:38
muslim brotherhood is
33:40
essentially at this point controlled by
33:41
turkey and uh
33:43
so i wouldn’t be at all surprised if
33:45
they’re sharing that around to a lot of
33:47
people that would not be friendly to the
33:48
united states or our interests and
33:51
russia and china i mean it’s it’s a very
33:53
serious problem now of course
33:55
i i don’t know of any specific cases
33:57
within the cia or fbi of
33:59
people working currently for the chinese
34:01
or russians and if i did i would most
34:02
assuredly
34:03
report them but i think to think that
34:07
that is not an issue
34:08
not a problem would be uh hugely naive
34:10
it clearly is a problem
34:12
particularly the chinese they are so
34:14
aggressive
34:16
worldwide uh at every level and their
34:19
intelligence is just going
34:20
nuts here in the united states and i
34:22
don’t know in the last year there’s
34:24
probably been
34:25
at least 50 cases of different types of
34:27
them doing things
34:28
and it’s just it’s craziness and
34:30
nobody’s really
34:31
well only recently has the fbi started
34:34
to fight back but i
34:35
i’m curious where the cia is because
34:37
there’s certainly no
34:39
no apparent effective means being used
34:42
by them to do anything
34:44
yeah well i talk about that issue in my
34:47
red green access
34:48
book you know most people don’t know
34:50
that
34:52
we allow 70 000 chinese
34:55
nationals to come to the united states
34:57
and get permanent legal residence
34:59
every year it’s the largest one of the
35:02
largest groups next to the
35:04
uh various hispanic groups it’s it’s the
35:07
largest
35:08
uh group that we allow to come in here
35:12
on an annual basis and as you know
35:14
many of those people are going to be
35:16
agents or even the ones that come here
35:18
legitimately
35:19
are going to be or could be called on at
35:23
any time by the communist government
35:25
to do favors for them and
35:29
according to something i read there’s
35:30
between 25 and 40 000
35:32
communist chinese agents in the united
35:35
states today
35:37
i i would i would wouldn’t be surprised
35:39
if there was some truth to that and one
35:41
thing most people aren’t aware of
35:43
by chinese law a chinese
35:46
person is obligated by chinese law
35:49
that if requested to spy for china they
35:51
have to do it
35:52
that’s the law it’s not like here the
35:54
united states is an american you can
35:55
refuse
35:56
but chinese cannot and of course they
35:59
all have family members back in china
36:01
so uh let’s face it the chinese
36:03
communists
36:04
have no qualms whatsoever about taking
36:06
somebody and throwing them against the
36:08
wall and shooting them
36:09
and we’ve certainly seen some successes
36:11
the uh the the driver and office manager
36:14
for a u.s senator from california was a
36:17
spy for the chinese for 20 years
36:20
and nothing happened out of that she was
36:22
informed of that by the fbi dianne
36:23
feinstein of course
36:24
is who i’m referring to she was informed
36:26
of it she fired the guy and said well
36:28
there’s nothing there this is a nothing
36:30
burger it doesn’t matter
36:31
he didn’t have access to anything in dc
36:33
so it doesn’t matter
36:34
well and yet we see policies coming out
36:36
of the united states that the senate
36:38
votes on that let’s what is it
36:40
70 000 chinese coming to the united
36:42
states every year
36:43
and we know they’re using it for
36:44
intelligence purposes but why do we get
36:46
those votes
36:48
yeah and who’s making those kinds of
36:50
decisions i’d really like to know in
36:52
dhs or state department who
36:55
decides that 70 000 chinese nationals
36:58
can get
36:59
legal permanent residents in the united
37:00
states every year it’s like
37:02
it’s like a foreign army in place here
37:05
in the country
37:07
yes and i might add one aspect of that
37:09
and and now i’m referring to terrorism
37:11
but
37:12
uh this was initially reported by the
37:14
lebanese intelligence service that
37:16
in these waves of what people are
37:17
calling migration
37:19
into europe and the united states where
37:21
these muslim countries are
37:23
are bringing people in the united states
37:24
and as we’ve seen the majority of them
37:27
are single males these
37:28
the vast majority of them are not
37:29
families and the lebanese service
37:32
uh said that they estimate that a
37:35
minimum
37:36
of one percent of everyone that comes in
37:40
is part of an integrated military
37:42
terrorist unit
37:44
not just random individuals coming in
37:46
but integrated units where you have the
37:48
soldiers
37:49
the the non-commissioned officers the
37:51
officers the senior officers
37:53
all coming in who’ve trained as a unit
37:55
that are dispersed
37:56
make their way in and then resettle in
37:58
the united states and western europe
38:00
now that’s the minimum of one percent
38:02
that’s one out of a
38:03
every 100 people and there’s thousands
38:05
and in some cases millions of
38:06
people coming in that’s extraordinarily
38:09
dangerous and short-sighted
38:12
uh jay asks what are the key issues and
38:15
prospects going forward assuming trump
38:17
is re-elected
38:18
i think you kind of answered that but i
38:21
did but i
38:21
that generally speaking in the united
38:23
states
38:25
kind of the main national security
38:26
problems are described as the four plus
38:28
one it’s kind of an
38:29
old term now but the four is russia
38:32
china north korea and iran and the one
38:34
is terrorism so
38:35
that’s kind of a general thing going
38:37
forward now
38:38
i would change that i would i would make
38:40
it a 1-4-1
38:42
and what i would do different going
38:44
forward and i would
38:45
strongly suggest that be implemented
38:47
given the opportunity to provide this
38:49
advice to the president is that china
38:51
needs to be brought up above
38:53
head and shoulders because they are a
38:54
greater danger than the others so if i
38:56
would put the one at the top of china
38:58
then i would lump together the uh the
39:01
the
39:02
russia north korea and iran but i would
39:04
add to that list turkey
39:05
and then of course keep terrorism as an
39:07
issue so i would do the one for one
39:09
which is bump china up and add turkey i
39:12
sometimes wonder though with the soviet
39:14
union with
39:15
i still call it the soviet union you
39:18
know
39:18
their supposed fall of communism in 1991
39:22
was a
39:23
deny your enemy an enemy tactic that
39:25
they created and it worked beautifully
39:27
because we
39:28
took our eyes off the ball when it came
39:31
to russia
39:32
and i wonder still if they’re not
39:34
practicing
39:35
you know another sun tzu principle
39:39
when you’re strong appear weak and so we
39:42
sort of we sort of just
39:44
we kind of ignore russia for the most
39:46
part we think oh well they’re not that
39:47
big of a deal it’s china
39:49
and i wonder if they’re not much bigger
39:52
of a deal than we ever give them credit
39:53
for
39:55
well russia belongs on that list of
39:57
threats i mean they
39:58
are a long-term uh threat to u.s
40:01
national security there’s no question i
40:03
i don’t think
40:04
well i’ve never heard anybody argue
40:06
against that i’m sure
40:07
there probably is someone somewhere but
40:09
they would be naive to think that russia
40:11
does not post
40:12
threats to the united states uh there’s
40:14
certainly a nuclear country
40:16
and they’re fairly aggressively
40:18
expanding their border if you look at
40:20
some of the things they’ve done in
40:21
in the republic of georgia taking a
40:23
couple areas there
40:24
and they’ve had a small war they’ve
40:27
essentially
40:28
conquered the crimea just cut off a
40:30
chunk out of ukraine which by the way
40:32
was kind of where the a lot of the
40:33
industrial base was so
40:35
putin clearly wanted that money and
40:38
under his control in hand
40:39
so and there’s other examples of that
40:41
sort of thing by by the russians so
40:44
uh they’re they’re fairly aggressive out
40:46
there and
40:47
uh their intelligence services are uh
40:50
certainly a world level player
40:52
and i would say unfortunately i mean
40:54
it’s part of what we were talking about
40:55
before there was a time where the cia
40:57
by itself was could pretty much
41:01
be one-to-one match with the rest of the
41:03
world on intelligence issues now of
41:05
course
41:05
we had other allies that would would
41:07
help uh
41:08
you know make us even better and
41:10
stronger because we had
41:11
allies that helped us uh but that is
41:14
long gone and now
41:15
i would say we’re we pale in comparison
41:18
to
41:19
the chinese and the russians most
41:20
unfortunately and that’s something we
41:22
need to
41:23
get back under control and get out there
41:24
in the world and start to
41:26
start doing the best job we can do here
41:28
is another question do you think
41:30
gina haspel haskell will ever
41:33
be brought to justice for her go-between
41:36
role for john brennan with
41:38
the gh gchq in london
41:41
the attempted coup versus the president
41:45
well uh in short yes i i do think so
41:48
uh and i can give you the reasons why
41:51
first of all i believe that in essence
41:53
she did the things that were posed in
41:55
in the question she’d been hand picked
41:57
to go back
41:58
to london as chief of the station she’d
42:00
already been there once
42:01
which while not super unusual is
42:04
is certainly not common particularly for
42:07
a post like
42:08
london so it is unusual and it was
42:10
taking place at the time
42:12
where uh peter strzok from the chief of
42:15
the ci division at fbi
42:17
was traveling to england and
42:18
coordinating these things and tr having
42:21
someone from the fbi working on
42:23
intelligence issues traveled to a
42:24
country
42:25
uh and not coordinate with the chief of
42:28
station would be unusual
42:30
so it’s very likely that that uh gina
42:33
haspel was involved in all of that which
42:35
is it was the basis of the question
42:37
now beyond that i’ve been told by a
42:39
couple of people
42:40
that gina haspel has long ago lawyered
42:43
up when this investigation took place
42:45
that she’d lawyered up now in the
42:47
interesting aspect of that as these
42:49
investigations take place out of doj
42:52
the people who are subject of the
42:53
investigation
42:55
are asked questions and allowed to
42:57
respond
42:58
as part of the investigation that having
43:02
been part of it you know i don’t know
43:05
i’m surmising this but it appears to me
43:08
that that would be the motive for gina
43:10
haspel to lawyer up
43:11
also finally one other little aspect
43:13
i’ve gotten a a report that i’ve
43:16
talked about a number of times i
43:17
unfortunately don’t have in front of me
43:18
but it’s the list
43:19
of who’s going to be indicted out of
43:21
that list of people that’s going to be
43:23
indicted it has
43:24
unnamed three unnamed cia personnel
43:27
so uh that i mean it would be i would
43:31
think it would be hard to indict those
43:33
three people and skip over gina haspel
43:35
who’s
43:36
is the current director of the cia by
43:38
the way for the record and
43:39
so based on those things all combined
43:43
it’s only my opinion but my opinion is
43:45
she will also be indicted
43:47
can you share who’s on that list with us
43:52
uh you know i like you said i
43:53
unfortunately don’t have that
43:55
in front of me and be happy to come back
43:57
we can do a whole
43:58
good just on that but uh james comey’s
44:01
on the list
44:02
uh peter strzok uh peter strock’s on the
44:04
list
44:05
uh the three unnamed cia uh john brennan
44:08
john brennan by the way on that list was
44:10
the only person
44:11
uh who according to this list which is
44:14
uh you know
44:14
unconfirmed uh that he’s the only
44:17
person who’s going to be charged with
44:19
treason however most of the other
44:21
players that we all know and love who
44:23
are active in this thing
44:24
uh will be charged with an attempt to
44:26
overthrow the government
44:28
which uh now i’m not a legal beatle or
44:30
anything so i can’t tell you but
44:32
trying to overthrow the government and
44:34
treason sound like pretty much the same
44:36
thing to me so i suspect that that’s an
44:38
extraordinarily serious charge
44:40
and i will say one other very
44:43
interesting thing out of all of this
44:45
the day after the mueller investigation
44:48
ended
44:48
and he did all of his testimony the day
44:51
after
44:52
was when u.s attorney general barr
44:54
reinstated the federal death penalty
44:57
now i don’t think that’s coincidence i
45:00
think that was
45:01
was causal he knew then when nothing
45:04
came out of that case
45:05
there were problems and i guarantee you
45:09
that if james comey or jim clapper or
45:12
john brennan or
45:14
gina haspel or whoever else was involved
45:16
in all of this
45:18
if that’s true all they have to do is go
45:21
to them and say well
45:22
treason attempting to overthrow the
45:24
government is a death penalty case
45:26
so right now that’s on the table unless
45:29
you’d like to tell us everything you
45:30
know and make a deal and i guarantee you
45:32
after they’ve cleaned up soiling their
45:34
their undies they’re going to sing like
45:36
a canary none of those guys have got the
45:38
huevos to face that down
45:40
and uh it would be fun to be a fly on
45:44
the wall and watch the tears
45:46
gosh oh that would be so wonderful
45:49
so darry asks can we recover
45:52
if not do we need a shadow cia what do
45:55
we do
45:57
hi daria yes well uh i
46:01
i think what really needs to be done is
46:03
as i’ve said
46:04
you cannot fix the cia with who’s there
46:08
so i i think what needs to be done is
46:10
the operations
46:11
end of of the cia needs to be removed
46:15
from the cia altogether
46:17
and a new organization needs to be
46:19
created
46:20
uh and i even have the office picked out
46:22
and that
46:24
that new organization then needs to
46:26
handle the uh
46:27
the espionage elements of what currently
46:30
are in the cia
46:31
and then you can start picking people
46:33
and and put them in charge and try to
46:35
keep it as a state
46:36
pristine you want that separate what you
46:39
want is we go about
46:40
recruit reporting sources get the
46:42
information reported
46:43
passed it off to leadership and and we
46:45
don’t care we have nothing to do with it
46:47
after that
46:48
and i will say although ronald reagan
46:50
was a great hero of mine i
46:52
i appreciate and admire so much of what
46:55
he accomplished and did
46:56
i think he made one mistake and that one
46:58
mistake that he made was
47:00
he made uh the guy who happened to be a
47:02
good friend and a great director of the
47:04
cia
47:05
but he made that man a cabinet position
47:09
and the cia director should not be a
47:11
cabinet position
47:12
because cabinet positions make policy
47:15
and you don’t want the director of the
47:17
ci to have a damn thing to do with
47:19
policy
47:19
he needs to be completely out of policy
47:21
discussions should have nothing left to
47:23
do
47:24
whatsoever to do with it because once
47:26
you become wed to a policy
47:28
you go out and find information that
47:30
fits it and by the way
47:32
that to me defines forgive me darya for
47:35
this that
47:35
that defines the state department now
47:38
that’s the real underlying problem with
47:40
them bureaucratic
47:42
do nothing organization that is so led
47:45
to policy they don’t even allow
47:46
reporting to go forward
47:48
if it differs with what those policies
47:50
are great
47:52
uh vicky asks was john brennan
47:55
implementing
47:56
total quality management i don’t know
47:59
what that’s all i mean i remember we
48:00
tried
48:01
he started that when i was still at omb
48:04
but
48:10
you know i there’s a lot of stuff i
48:11
can’t go into that i don’t want to talk
48:13
about on the air
48:14
you know that because it does kind of
48:16
touch on some classified issues
48:18
but the short answer to that is no
48:22
i think that phrase was used to
48:24
accomplish
48:25
political things not actually create
48:28
good management
48:29
now i i wish i could go into the wise
48:32
and all
48:32
in this particular case but i can
48:34
guarantee you and i think you’ll agree
48:36
with me
48:36
that that that nothing was done to
48:39
actually make things work well
48:41
it was just it was done for political
48:43
motives yep
48:44
absolutely and doreen just makes a
48:47
statement
48:48
haspel has to go yes ask police to go
48:51
absolutely um donna
48:55
and patty can i make a comment on that
48:57
last question i would say
48:59
gina haspel should go i think esper the
49:02
secretary of defense should go and most
49:04
assuredly christopher ray from the fbi
49:06
should go they would go
49:07
for me they would go instantly all three
49:09
of them i don’t think they’re trying to
49:11
help
49:11
the president with his agenda and
49:13
christopher wray fbi director
49:15
in particular has done nothing to clean
49:18
up this
49:18
this cesspool that has become leadership
49:21
at the fbi
49:22
and until that gets cleaned up you
49:24
cannot trust the fbi
49:26
and he thinks that by tamping it down
49:28
and covering it up he’s protecting
49:30
the fbi’s reputation and he’s not he’s
49:33
allowing the rot to spread
49:35
and the reputation of the fbi to be
49:37
flushed down the toilet
49:39
i i that guy doesn’t deserve the
49:42
position he’s been given
49:44
not to mention the fact that he
49:46
identified white supremacy is the most
49:48
important
49:49
dangerous threat our country faces
49:51
domestic threat
49:53
i mean just say something like that
49:56
uh anyway but yeah he’s a he’s block
49:59
puts a roadblock in everything
50:01
um so let’s see is john
50:04
radcliffe uh same people john radcliffe
50:07
an ally in this effort
50:10
i yes i believe he is uh ratcliffe is
50:13
the type of guy that
50:14
while he doesn’t have um
50:18
you know a solid background and
50:19
intelligence and those sorts of things
50:21
he he’s the type of guy that does
50:23
understand i think he’s a good guy
50:25
i think he believes the president wants
50:26
to help and i think ratcliffe
50:28
uh i think he’s the type of guy that
50:32
i’m sorry what’s his position brad
50:35
john he’s the new dni right
50:39
okay okay yeah yes clarify that for the
50:42
people that don’t know
50:44
oh okay sorry so i believe that he’s
50:46
somebody that that in that position
50:49
he’s going to seek out people whose
50:52
opinion he trusts
50:53
and find out and then he’ll try to put
50:56
together a good
50:57
a good plan of operations and i where i
50:59
think he’s strong is i don’t think he’s
51:01
going to be fooled by a lot of the
51:02
nonsense that’s out there
51:03
that he’s going to be able to figure it
51:05
out because he wants to
51:07
he’s not going to just like take the
51:08
first convenient answer he gets he’s
51:10
going to dig in and
51:11
compare what he’s told until he has that
51:14
short list of say
51:15
you know a dozen people that he knows he
51:17
can go to and find out
51:19
so i think he’ll do a good job
51:22
and i would also say that some of these
51:24
things that we’re seeing be classified
51:26
and released by lindsey graham out of
51:29
the senate
51:30
have been done in conjunction with
51:32
radcliff so i think
51:34
i i personally view i would give him
51:37
some of the credit for that
51:39
great um karen asks does trump
51:42
need to know or does trump know what
51:46
needs to be done
51:47
i think you sort of answered that
51:48
question too i can
51:50
tell you for a fact trump has been told
51:53
what needs to be done
51:55
uh trump as anyone who’s a
51:58
an experienced negotiator holds his
52:00
cards very close to his chest
52:02
so what he’s up to what he’s planning i
52:05
i don’t know for sure
52:07
uh certainly i’ve never met the
52:09
president so he’s not telling me a damn
52:10
thing but
52:11
uh i believe that he
52:15
has figured all of this out and my
52:18
opinion is that
52:19
he doesn’t want to do very much right
52:21
now i know
52:22
his advisers are telling him don’t rock
52:24
the boat
52:26
this close to election win and then do
52:28
what you need to do
52:30
so i believe that that’s what’s
52:31
happening is we’re gonna wait and
52:33
see win the election and then implement
52:36
those things but
52:37
i guarantee you the president has been
52:38
told uh
52:40
most of these things that we’re
52:41
discussing tonight great
52:43
and jay asked sort of a follow-on
52:46
question do you have an effective voice
52:48
to appropriate decision makers on these
52:50
issues
52:52
i don’t know you know it’s so hard to
52:54
tell on these things i mean
52:55
i talk to people know people and there’s
52:57
people that are that are decision makers
52:59
that are going to view programs like
53:00
this and
53:01
i’ve written a lot of op-eds and i’ve
53:03
published in washington times and
53:05
the military american military news and
53:07
different different
53:08
large publications that a lot of people
53:10
see
53:11
and so the information is put out there
53:13
whether
53:14
uh whether people listen take that to
53:16
heart or care
53:18
uh oftentimes i i don’t really think so
53:20
and
53:21
my this is just my personal complaint if
53:23
you will
53:24
but most of the people that you see in
53:26
government other than a very few
53:28
very senior people most of the people
53:30
you see in government most of the rank
53:31
and file are
53:32
like maybe 30 you know so you have very
53:35
young
53:35
people that are still figuring stuff out
53:38
and you don’t you know where
53:39
where i would fill those ranks with far
53:41
more experienced people you know people
53:42
that got 20 or 30 years under their belt
53:45
and and go down into mid management with
53:47
that sort of person
53:48
uh you just don’t see that what you see
53:50
are the are very young people filling
53:52
those slots
53:53
so at you know there’s the old adage
53:55
about the 30 year olds who
53:57
who talk to prove how much they know and
53:59
they haven’t figured out
54:00
that they that they don’t know what they
54:02
don’t know so
54:03
whether people listen you know it’s it’s
54:06
so hard to to guess
54:08
um with regard to uh
54:11
our capabilities um
54:15
gary asks can you compare the
54:16
effectiveness of the chinese russian
54:18
and iranian intelligence services to u.s
54:21
capabilities well you
54:23
answered that about the chinese and
54:24
russians there’s just no comparison
54:26
how do we stack up against the iranians
54:29
though
54:30
yeah certainly chinese and washington’s
54:33
are worldwide capable and very effective
54:35
trained
54:36
good professional officers uh iran
54:39
uh i would uh i would put them more i
54:41
mean
54:42
they have pretty good reach through a
54:45
fairly
54:46
large uh i’ll call it a surrogacy
54:49
program you know they have these
54:51
militia groups and different people that
54:52
they support and they spread it out
54:54
so i would say certainly within that
54:57
region
54:58
all of greater arabia if you will i
55:01
think they’re a fairly effective
55:02
service uh i don’t think they’re a
55:05
worldwide service well
55:07
they do certain things in latin america
55:10
uh they do certain things in africa uh
55:13
they’re not necessarily
55:15
continent wide like you would see out of
55:17
a china or russia so
55:19
i would put them as a as a notch down
55:22
both in professionalism
55:23
and capabilities and as a world
55:26
uh power for intelligence issues so
55:30
um second level would be my my take on
55:32
iran
55:33
and in those circumstances kathy asks uh
55:37
chris ray has been said is hiding
55:40
an fbi agent that could be indicted with
55:43
the coup on trump
55:45
uh how can changes be made by the
55:48
president
55:49
regarding the fbi also has intelligence
55:52
not
55:52
informed been informed in advance about
55:55
blm
55:56
antifa and why is george soros not
55:59
declared an enemy of the state
56:01
that’s a good question because yes
56:04
let me let me just congrats yeah let me
56:07
start yeah exactly let me start with the
56:09
last question first it’s it’s
56:11
uh george soros is an effective
56:13
operative
56:14
uh and finances
56:17
tons of democratic party stuff and a lot
56:20
of the social media that’s out there
56:22
helping
56:22
uh biden in the election is from this
56:26
vast array of organizations that are in
56:28
part funded by soros and others
56:30
and so they’re very effective in
56:33
supporting it and in fact a lot of the
56:35
money
56:36
coming out of these other organizations
56:38
going into black lives matter and black
56:39
lives
56:40
matters is potentially money laundering
56:42
and then putting it into the biden
56:44
campaign and
56:45
all of those things going on are well
56:47
coordinated and organized
56:48
organized it’s very effective now i
56:50
agree certainly with the sentiment that
56:52
people like soros
56:53
who’s probably also funding many of
56:56
these riots in the street that people
56:58
have gotten killed and there’s property
57:00
damage and all those things
57:01
for me that should be a criminal
57:03
enterprise and you should just go on up
57:05
the chain and
57:06
arrest everybody who’s involved with it
57:07
these professional protesters
57:09
should all go to jail the people that
57:11
are funding them the intermediary should
57:12
go to jail
57:13
and the origin of the money if he knows
57:15
that that money is being used to do
57:17
these riots he should go to jail
57:18
and all that should be done so uh
57:22
the problem with that is is it it
57:24
requires political
57:26
will and you you we’ve got mainstream
57:29
media who will fight it tooth and nail
57:31
look at what they’re already doing
57:32
mainstream media today
57:35
is reporting that the federal officers
57:39
who are defending the building say for
57:40
example in portland in these different
57:42
cities where the federal uh you know
57:45
offices are being attacked and they want
57:47
to destroy them
57:48
they’re now saying that those federal
57:50
officers
57:51
are specifically targeting the press and
57:54
trying to take out the press
57:56
so that’s what you see coming out of
57:57
mainstream media today
57:59
i mean just faced with the democratic
58:01
party the mainstream media
58:03
all of these organizations like uh like
58:06
that are being backed by george soros
58:08
and all of those different groups
58:09
they’ll fight all that tooth and nail
58:11
and the fact is they’re effective in the
58:13
propaganda
58:14
market they’re just they’re just
58:15
effective out of it and
58:17
we as conservatives who believe in you
58:20
know self-reliance and independence
58:22
and small government and all of those
58:23
things we’re just not organized that way
58:26
we’re just not built to do those things
58:27
but that is one of the reasons why
58:29
i’m here at americans for intelligence
58:31
reform and well i am why i’m fighting
58:33
for these issues
58:34
yeah well i’ve said for years that uh if
58:37
they were really got serious george
58:39
soros
58:40
the open society institute and all of
58:42
his network of organizations could be
58:45
recode
58:46
you know that they’re seized under the
58:49
ricoh statutes and just shut them right
58:52
down but we just don’t have the guts to
58:53
do it
58:54
claire another question from claire do
58:56
you think the cia nsc
58:58
white house leadership understands that
59:01
turkey
59:02
directs the us muslim brotherhood
59:08
i think so i think that that’s
59:11
understood fairly widely
59:13
i uh i
59:16
where i see the president on this is
59:18
that
59:20
um i don’t he has made certain comments
59:24
that i’m referring to and i’m using
59:26
that to judge his position but i believe
59:29
that the president and and we heard
59:30
him talk about this sort of stuff when
59:32
he would withdrew most of the troops out
59:34
of syria for example
59:36
he views these as millennia old scores
59:39
that are never going to be settled and
59:40
there
59:41
won’t be peace between all these warring
59:43
groups and so i believe that he looks at
59:46
a lot of what’s going on around turkey
59:48
for example
59:49
as those sorts of issues and he does not
59:51
want to get the us
59:53
into a quagmire so while i think that
59:56
i know there are people that understand
59:58
about muslim brotherhood in turkey
60:00
i believe the president’s fully aware of
60:02
turkey
60:03
basically running the muslim brotherhood
60:06
but i don’t think
60:06
he views that as a key issue that needs
60:10
to be addressed by the united states of
60:11
america
60:12
and that he doesn’t really see a great
60:14
way to do it without being drawn into
60:16
again
60:16
in some sort of quagmire so i think
60:18
that’s his hesitation and i think that’s
60:20
why we don’t see
60:21
any sort of strong policy to what we see
60:24
going on
60:25
like in the greek waters and in libya
60:28
and uh even in
60:29
with the fighting that’s taking place
60:31
between uh
60:32
armenia and and azerbaijan and
60:35
nagorno-karabakh
60:36
all those things i think that’s why
60:37
we’re not seeing strong positions come
60:39
out on that from the president
60:42
tom asks do you feel the president’s
60:44
executive order regarding federal hiring
60:46
reform can facilitate the revamping of
60:49
the intelligence community
60:52
no i think they’re completely separate
60:53
issues i think it has nothing whatsoever
60:55
to do with it uh
60:56
the revamping of the of intelligence is
60:58
is going to have to be that and
61:00
just like the bloating is beyond
61:03
imagination and the overlap in mission
61:06
is beyond imagination just the director
61:08
of national intelligence
61:10
after uh 9 11 in the and the commission
61:13
uh the the 911 commission was formed and
61:16
came out with their conclusions and dni
61:18
was formed
61:19
uh it was meant to be you know 100
61:21
people or 50 people
61:23
and that would sort of direct overall
61:24
intelligence and now they’re they’re
61:26
thousands
61:26
they’ve got analysts and they’re
61:28
overlapping the same duties that a lot
61:30
of other people do
61:31
and just the overlap and bloating is is
61:34
beyond belief if this was all made
61:36
public
61:36
which it can’t be but if it were all
61:38
made public i think people would burn
61:40
down
61:40
would go back and burn down those
61:41
federal buildings you’d have everybody
61:42
you wanted
61:46
uh james asked what is potus doing what
61:49
do you know about
61:49
clinton read ukrainian uranium gate
61:54
will they be prosecuted will high-level
61:56
pedophiles be charged epstein
61:58
crowd will potus act against those
62:02
responsible
62:02
for gain of function research
62:06
for most of that i don’t think so the
62:08
ukrainian deal or the uh
62:10
uranium deal is certainly a sore spot to
62:12
me as well
62:14
i have some theories on it but i’m just
62:17
not
62:17
sure but i don’t think any prosecution
62:20
is going to take place
62:21
against anything clinton or
62:25
obama including biden and what
62:28
u.s attorney general barr has said is
62:31
that they are not
62:32
under investigation so i think he’s
62:34
drawn the line
62:35
and now this is not what i think is a
62:38
good thing
62:39
but what i want to relate is what i
62:40
believe that u.s attorney
62:42
general barr thinks and i believe that
62:45
he thinks
62:46
that going after former presidents
62:48
united states and prosecuting them
62:50
putting them in jail
62:51
would be a net loss to the united states
62:54
of america i think he thinks it would
62:55
damage
62:56
the united states of america so he’s
62:58
drawn the line and doesn’t want to do it
63:00
that
63:00
is what i believe that he has decided
63:03
whether it’s right or wrong good or bad
63:05
separate issue he’s decided that’s just
63:07
too big of a political
63:09
uh risk to take
63:13
uh terence asks how relevant is this
63:16
council on foreign relation
63:18
what is their role that’s a good
63:21
question i don’t know a lot about the
63:22
council on foreign relations but uh you
63:24
know certainly in the intelligence world
63:26
it’s
63:26
you know they’re not not something that
63:29
i would use a major player you know
63:31
they’re not making decisions that had
63:32
impact on intelligence
63:33
traditionally uh so i i wouldn’t view it
63:36
as as a key player from
63:38
from the intelligence perspective if
63:39
that they may have something more to do
63:41
with
63:42
you know the state department and and
63:44
and things like that with policy and
63:46
and the the you know negotiations and
63:49
diplomatic issues that sort of thing
63:52
yeah now we’ll see if our
63:54
members joined algier hiss in
63:57
writing the un um you know
64:00
founding u.n um charter uh so they were
64:04
all
64:04
you know globalists anyway but that’s
64:07
it’s a separate issue
64:08
uh francis asks you have the expertise
64:12
to advise president trump on hiring
64:14
trustworthy people to lead these
64:15
agencies
64:16
have you been able to convince him and
64:18
or assist him in recommending people
64:21
based on your knowledge it sounds like
64:23
you’re the man to help get our
64:24
intelligence working again the way it’s
64:26
supposed to
64:28
well would love would love to try and
64:31
make it happen certainly
64:33
would uh you know be we would not be a
64:35
challenge for me to be able to pick out
64:37
people that would be good to help the
64:39
cause in that sense uh
64:41
that as i said i don’t know personally
64:43
i’ve never met the president of the
64:44
united states would love to do so but
64:46
i have never met him uh
64:50
you know have i passed recommendations
64:52
to people that do know the president
64:54
yes i have um have they been acted on
64:57
you know
64:58
this has all been fairly recent and
65:02
they have not been well i would say
65:04
certain things are being looked at but
65:06
nothing’s been
65:06
acted on they haven’t been rejected
65:08
either but they haven’t been
65:09
acted on and i think much of that is
65:11
because for the last several months and
65:13
and up until november i think the
65:15
president as i said is in a holding
65:17
pattern so
65:18
i don’t think even if the president
65:20
called me in and said brad put your list
65:22
together
65:23
i think it would be give it to me after
65:25
november
65:26
uh i just i don’t think he’s going to
65:28
entertain anything serious on those
65:29
funds
65:31
jeff says you’ve made it a pretty
65:34
negative assessment of the effectiveness
65:36
of our intelligence capabilities
65:39
and while i’m in no position to question
65:41
the accuracy of your assessment to what
65:43
you attribute the fact
65:44
that the us is still here and haven’t
65:47
yet
65:48
been conquered by our enemies
65:50
[Music]
65:53
well i guess i would i would answer that
65:56
with
65:56
uh the fact that
66:00
every asset that we had that was
66:02
reporting on china
66:04
got caught and they were pulled out of
66:06
their
66:07
desks and walked out the front door and
66:09
shoved against the wall
66:10
and shot in front of all of their
66:12
workmates to send a lesson there were a
66:14
few that
66:15
initially survived that and were
66:16
interrogated and then executed
66:18
we’re talking over 20 people with that
66:20
and that’s something that’s played out
66:22
in a lot of other arenas including
66:24
uh iran and that
66:28
was done based on a communication
66:32
system that never worked right and every
66:34
time it was used every asset involved
66:36
was found and mostly executed
66:39
so uh yes that does not
66:42
mean that the united states is
66:43
immediately conquered but does is that a
66:46
reflection of incompetence on the part
66:48
of intelligence
66:49
and i argue to you that it is every time
66:51
every one of your assets gets wrapped up
66:53
and
66:54
shot that’s that’s a good indication
66:56
that you are a massive screw-up
66:58
and what was done to those people that
67:00
caused all that that made those
67:01
decisions that approved all that
67:03
and that is nothing yeah right that’s
67:06
right nothing happened to him
67:08
tara says it’s his second term president
67:11
trump should clean out the compromised
67:13
personnel and cia and other agencies
67:16
seems also he needs operatives embedded
67:18
within state
67:19
within said agencies to root out who is
67:21
working against the interests of the u.s
67:24
do you think president trump is willing
67:25
to do this and charge the
67:27
compromised individuals for treason
67:31
well uh the treason charges that’s going
67:33
to be u.s attorney general barr
67:35
that is basically hands off for trump
67:37
trump gets
67:38
uh general briefings out of u.s attorney
67:40
general barr but
67:42
he doesn’t control those issues and
67:43
leaves it in the hands of doj where it
67:45
is
67:46
properly decided upon uh for changing
67:49
out those people
67:50
there’s i’m very confident
67:54
that president trump is going to start
67:57
to try and bring in people
67:59
following his re-election that are going
68:01
to help him
68:02
in a you know a more effective manner
68:04
and be be the patriots that want to help
68:06
him type of person that i was discussing
68:09
so i know he’s going to do some changes
68:11
along those lines the real
68:12
question is how far and deep will he go
68:16
with that
68:17
and will the people that he brings in be
68:20
given carte blanche to do that for
68:22
themselves
68:23
those two are the questions and as i say
68:26
that requires some you know some
68:28
intestinal fortitude on the part of a
68:30
politician the president of the united
68:32
states
68:33
and uh will he be willing to do it i i
68:35
personally think the president’s pretty
68:37
courageous guy i mean kind of unlawful
68:39
than his they’ve thrown everything at
68:40
him including the kitchen sink and
68:43
he’s pretty tough so um i would like to
68:45
see it but just don’t know how far he’ll
68:47
be willing to go but certainly i think
68:49
he’s going to do something
68:51
the fbi gets ignored when they meet with
68:53
ivy league administrators to warn them
68:55
about
68:56
chinese spying in academia how do we get
68:59
academia to pay attention and we start
69:02
arresting those chinese spies
69:05
well yes and the fbi i believe it was in
69:07
late
69:08
2018 came out with a report and were
69:10
directed to start going after that
69:12
uh the chinese that are so effectively
69:14
embedded in our research in universities
69:16
and so on
69:17
and they’ve done a pretty good job and
69:20
that’s where we saw that
69:21
uh head of the chemistry department at
69:23
uh
69:25
uh what was it uh don’t know me to this
69:27
i think it was harvard
69:28
right it was the head of the chemistry
69:30
department at harvard if i’m mistaken
69:31
forgive me
69:32
uh and uh he you know that guy he’s been
69:36
indicted is probably going to go to jail
69:38
for that and you know
69:39
i think he was taking 50 000 a month
69:42
secretly from the chinese so
69:43
the fbi is now pretty active in that
69:46
they’re going after these people so
69:47
there are concrete steps being taken
69:50
academia is precisely the wrong group of
69:53
people to defend themselves against this
69:56
because they’re by and large socialists
69:59
and they’re maoists and they believe in
70:02
china
70:03
so they’re the deal that that’s that’s
70:06
they’re the exactly the wrong people to
70:08
try and have
70:09
police this themselves and they won’t do
70:10
it and just a conservative professor is
70:13
going to be chased out of almost any
70:14
university in the united states
70:16
of america not to mention you know
70:18
trying to go after
70:19
some of these guys from china that are
70:21
bringing in big bucks
70:22
and grants and things to these
70:24
universities so
70:25
they’re indebted to china they’re an
70:28
indebted to this process and i i just
70:31
i don’t believe they’re going to do
70:33
anything in fact i think they’re
70:34
fighting the fbi and what the fbi is
70:36
trying to do
70:38
that would be another area by the way
70:40
that i would love to see the president
70:42
take some sort of action that if if
70:44
universities are going to be getting
70:46
receiving any sort of funding that they
70:48
need to make an effort
70:49
to be more representative of the united
70:51
states of america and represent the
70:53
ideals and thoughts of
70:54
others outside of that socialist liberal
70:56
class
70:58
and trump has addressed that uh in
71:01
both speaking and uh he may have put out
71:04
an
71:05
executive order uh talking about
71:08
withholding funds but
71:10
yes definitely talked about it um yes
71:12
are you aware
71:13
of the that there’s a rapidly
71:16
deteriorating
71:18
uh stability in somalia
71:22
yes that’s true okay all right
71:26
we’ll talk about that after the thing
71:29
we’ll talk about that off
71:31
okay uh david
71:36
asks david boris former
71:40
chief of police in georgia and the head
71:42
of sharia crime stoppers asked the
71:44
current
71:45
the commit
71:48
the director of the cia was associated
71:51
with brennan
71:52
where does her loyalty lie can she be
71:54
trusted to correct the system
71:57
problems in the cia is the new director
71:59
of intelligence capable of reforming the
72:02
intelligence
72:03
community well i i mean in short the
72:07
answer is no
72:08
um but i would uh the long answer would
72:12
be
72:12
i think everyone remembers when uh
72:14
senator mccain john mccain
72:16
arizona passed away from cancer well sad
72:19
not not
72:20
to you know suggesting anything other
72:22
than that
72:23
but to his funeral uh it was a very
72:26
interesting thing that
72:27
uh the ci current cia director gina
72:31
haspel attended that funeral
72:33
and went went to his funeral in arizona
72:35
but who did she travel with in private
72:37
jet
72:38
none other than john brennan and so uh
72:41
i think that it’s hard to consider her
72:45
anything other than a close personal
72:47
friend and a lieutenant
72:49
and supporter of john brennan’s so how
72:52
could you probably
72:52
possibly trust somebody like that and
72:55
the other aspect of it is
72:57
all of these things i’ve mentioned about
72:59
dissolving the directorate of operations
73:02
and having this sort of
73:04
one-size-fits-all
73:05
everybody’s replaceable sort of
73:07
philosophy
73:08
that john brennan implemented gina has
73:12
done nothing to turn it around and gina
73:14
haspel is career
73:16
so she knows that was done she knows
73:19
what it means
73:20
and she’s done absolutely nothing to fix
73:22
it absolutely nothing
73:24
and she plays lip service and you can
73:26
see the ads that come out that are
73:28
talking about the cia and
73:30
who we’re trying to hire and all that
73:31
stuff that’s not the people they bring
73:32
in
73:33
you know it’s not what they’re doing
73:35
it’s you know it’s to try to
73:36
fool the president the administration
73:38
that’s that’s the whole thing going on
73:40
there so
73:41
no i would say that not only is she not
73:43
the person to fix it
73:45
she’s the person that’s actively trying
73:47
to stop anything of that nature
73:50
tom says regarding a reconstitution of
73:53
the operations
73:54
cadre what is your opinion regarding
73:58
former or current undercover law
74:00
enforcement given our experience in
74:02
recruiting and developing informants it
74:04
may speed up the development of such a
74:06
cadre
74:08
i would suggest so first of all
74:10
different things
74:12
undercover go ahead please i i would say
74:15
uh
74:16
you know uh well maybe maybe they’ve got
74:19
a point if it’s a
74:20
undercover law enforcement officer like
74:23
with the fbi who worked undercover
74:25
that kind of person maybe
74:29
case officer material
74:33
if you’re talking about people that are
74:35
recruited by
74:36
say for example the fbi i don’t think
74:39
i’d want them anywhere near
74:40
intelligence they’re usually drug
74:42
dealers or some other sleazy uh person
74:45
who’s taking a whole lot of money
74:47
to uh to to betray his brethren in the
74:51
criminal uh realm so
74:54
the actual undercover
74:58
informants no but possibly
75:01
the undercover law enforcement
75:04
officers who
75:08
who work that maybe i don’t know
75:12
it’s possible i mean certainly you can
75:14
uh you can draw what the agency’s done
75:16
recently is draw heavily from the
75:17
military for some of the uh
75:19
intelligence personnel and uh there have
75:21
been law enforcement that have come in
75:23
and done a decent job and so on
75:25
i would i would you know given my draw
75:28
others i would limit it to
75:30
i mean try to make it as civilian as you
75:32
can the a new operations
75:35
cadre at the cia there were good reasons
75:38
why that was done after world war
75:40
ii and i think those good reasons remain
75:42
in effect and are still good
75:43
reasons and so a law enforcement is
75:46
sufficiently different discipline
75:49
uh that you know
75:52
it depends on the flexibility of the
75:53
person and uh so some people would make
75:56
the transition easily and some would not
75:58
the military is the same if you look at
76:01
those three
76:02
essential disciplines if you will i’ll
76:04
say
76:05
militaries is essentially doctrinal i
76:07
mean there’s
76:08
doctrine for things in the military
76:10
there’s the book the way to do things
76:12
now
76:12
part of the book is to teach them to be
76:14
flexible and think and look for other
76:15
solutions all of that
76:17
but it is essentially doctrinal and if
76:20
you look at
76:20
law enforcement uh it’s essentially
76:23
reactive
76:24
a crime takes place and they leap into
76:26
action
76:27
and if you look at intelligence it’s
76:29
essentially proactive in nature
76:32
we know we have a problem out there so
76:34
we have to go
76:35
figure out somebody that’s going to get
76:37
us inside there and look at it and we
76:39
know that
76:39
you know this could be potential in the
76:41
future so let’s get some reporting
76:42
sources on it
76:43
so it’s it’s it’s proactive in that
76:45
sense so you’ve got that
76:47
you kind of three separate ways of
76:49
viewing the world and reacting to things
76:52
so uh can people go back and forth
76:54
between them
76:55
absolutely do people successfully do it
76:57
absolutely is it the norm
76:59
not so much not so much
77:02
uh james asks what can be done to stop
77:06
chinese technocracy that means social
77:08
credit score
77:10
5g artificial intelligence
77:14
surveillance blockchain cashless
77:17
currency all of which the un
77:19
cfr as well as dr fauci
77:22
uh readily endorse yes
77:25
that is a beautiful question laid out a
77:28
lot of the issues that are facing us
77:29
today
77:30
and let me say china for example not
77:33
many
77:34
people really focus on this but the
77:35
largest producer in the world by far
77:38
of bitcoin is china and what china is
77:41
up to is they’re trying to create an
77:43
alternative
77:44
uh economic banking system that’s
77:48
outside the direct control or or
77:50
influence of the united states of
77:51
america
77:52
so that they can operate in that world
77:54
and kind of bypass
77:55
the us and if sanctions take place they
77:58
don’t care
77:59
uh and actually from 5g very serious
78:02
problem
78:02
absolutely uh you know something that
78:05
needs to be controlled and they need to
78:07
be out of that business because of the
78:08
control that we’ve given over our
78:09
communications
78:11
and the possible disruptions they could
78:13
do all of those things
78:14
and now we have had some success on it
78:17
uh
78:18
for example the uk just pulled out of
78:20
agreements with uh
78:22
with china to uh to use the huawei
78:24
equipment the
78:25
huawei 5g equipment we all know that
78:27
huawei is
78:28
deeply involved in stealing you know
78:31
information and
78:32
technology and all of those things and
78:34
it’s totally in bed with chinese
78:35
intelligence so
78:37
we are making some progress there’s a
78:39
lot of effort to get that information
78:41
out of it
78:42
i’ve been a part of a number of projects
78:44
of that nature
78:45
and i also write op eds and do
78:47
interviews on that quite often
78:49
and i every time anybody will listen i
78:52
point out that the greatest long-term
78:54
strategic threat to the united states of
78:55
america is china
78:57
and this is part of why all of those
78:59
things that were mentioned in that
79:00
question are all
79:02
exactly why it’s such a problem
79:08
let’s see tara says it seems that in
79:11
president trump’s second term he should
79:12
infiltrate
79:14
cia and other agencies with loyal
79:16
patriots that will gather evidence
79:17
against
79:18
compromised individuals within cia fbi
79:21
and other
79:22
corrupted agencies so they may be
79:24
charged and indicted for treason against
79:26
the united states do you think president
79:28
trump is willing to do this
79:31
well you know to gather evidence is
79:34
is not the work of intelligence that’s
79:36
the work of doj department of
79:37
justice so i think that that’s what
79:40
hopefully our u.s attorney general
79:41
barr and us attorney john durham who’s
79:44
heading the investigation are doing
79:46
on that score i think
79:49
that president trump will move to
79:52
replace leadership
79:53
and if he gives them and in those
79:55
agencies and if he gives them the
79:57
political
79:57
leeway the wherewithal to do it i mean
80:00
it’s not that hard
80:01
you if you were put in as director what
80:03
you have to do is take some time and
80:05
start going down in the ranks
80:07
and and fare it out a few people that
80:09
you can trust and bring them in maybe
80:10
bring a few back out of retirement
80:12
until you can build a cadre around you
80:14
that are going to help
80:15
and then start moving down and back up
80:17
and start filling in and bringing in new
80:19
people and
80:20
it takes some time to do it but that’s
80:22
the way and it could be done at the fbi
80:24
can be done at cia it could be done
80:26
you know basically anywhere it can be
80:27
done at the state department but uh
80:29
whether it will be done you know i don’t
80:32
know will he bring in people that
80:33
understand it and want to do it
80:35
i would say one of the problems we have
80:39
is that people come into these positions
80:41
and sometimes they have onward ambitions
80:45
and by making a row uh like if i were to
80:48
go in now and i’m not this isn’t
80:50
something i’m after i don’t want to go
80:51
in a structure that’s yeah
80:52
you know it’s not what i’m after don’t
80:54
want to go back into government for
80:56
a lot of reasons but if somehow
80:58
magically ever
80:59
or made the director of the cia that
81:01
would be automatically what i would do
81:03
like you know i’ve laid out the game
81:04
plan right there that would be what i
81:05
would do but i don’t have onward
81:07
ambitions i’m not a politician i don’t
81:09
want to be a politician
81:10
i don’t want to run for office i don’t
81:12
want to be president i don’t want to be
81:13
senator i don’t want to be congressman
81:15
i don’t want any of that nonsense so
81:18
that’s the type of person you have to
81:20
find that will come in and do the job
81:21
that way
81:22
which i hope is in fact i believe is
81:25
in fact is u.s attorney general barr for
81:27
example i don’t believe he has onward
81:29
ambition side so i think he’s doing his
81:31
job
81:32
and some of these other people they’re
81:35
not that way they want to do more stuff
81:37
they want to you know be appointed to
81:38
something else or run for office or
81:42
the fact that it’s extremely difficult
81:44
to fire
81:46
uh federal employees and i mean i made
81:48
the case early on
81:50
that when
