about our current foreign policy the lie so that is for the rest of the world he's a government professor Cedar Valley College we discuss how professor how president Trump's foreign policy is not working and will isolate America from our allies in the rest of the world he will analyze president Trump's administrative administration's foreign policy would cease to be destroyed everything accomplished by President Obama which far has had diplomacy rather than war Kelvin points uh president trumpets demonize the Paris Accord the Iran agreement immigration the grief policy for children brought to America which would extend to them legal status on our nation and president Trump is also demonized their allies would support us in all wars we have been involved in including World War two Korea Vietnam Desert Storm Afghanistan and Iraq further he points to president Trump extending and relates to Russia and North Korea Calvin will analyze the preceding wars and agreements which will prove conclusively the Trump's foreign policy will isolate America for the rest of the world he concludes that President Trump is with you out of step with history the decisions made him carried out since the end of World War two and President transform policy has been bent on total confusion without any victories so without further ado please get very very warm welcome to Calvin Lewis what's your 20 yeah don't apologize for being late everybody I deal with accepted to college I get there on time but 34 years I I grew up on the pond and I wasn't too good at it but I worked hard to please my father and you get up at 5:00 and you did you you stop when it gets dark and one thing you had a good view you would put him where he's supposed to walk and stay there time to lunch he stopped so and they have the day after day doing that so but anyway I had to be there on time then I went in service get up at 5 o'clock you know KP you know all that stuff that they did it and you know he breakfasted go to work at 8 and the day was as long as it was and then in my working career in most places I could be to work at 8 so when I retired I said I was able to get up at night and wherever go somewhere I'll be there when I get there so what's good operating on that previously I gave a report on American foreign policy and my conclusion there was will hang various principles of theories of foreign policy that you operate on actually for and my conclusion was you know war is very expensive many people get messed up I don't know how many of you served in the Army's which can you go through basic training and you go through that infiltration course it gives you a feel for how deals in the real situation but it's not the real situation you know the way do we fight you know coming to Afghanistan Iraq and Korea was different Vietnam was different but still you know fighting enemy face-to-face and Afghanistan Iraq we've been bombing and most of the things that happened the lights probably 10 years is they just blow up the vehicles and so that kind of environment really mess up people's mind because they're always on the great anxiety because they don't know what he's going to happen and so it's destructive in our fear and when I look at the results World War two veterans was treated really well but in kept the nation the serviceman Readjustment Act I gave a lot of opportunities to the first man who was able to survive the war they wanted to form money and chief interest rate to buy a farm they have $100 a month to do it if you want to go to college they would pay you $150 a month pay the tuition buy the books and most of those guys going to war he is not rich people they were people who was earned a minimum wage the minimum wage is 75 bucks so if you worked for 75 cents an hour for 40 album that's just 30 bucks a week Social Security income tax you got 25 so they were better off going to college they had more money then they got a degree and really had a major positive impact on the economy in the United States and so after Korea they deal still hated servicemen's Readjustment Act but between Korea are in you know Vietnam they ceased it in a napkin Vietnam started then they started back given it but it wasn't as generous as was because when I got that it wasn't available but when a Vietnam War axillary I got it but I was only going summons and I won't have any books of mother they got nothing significant books so it's a little different so the point I'm making American foreign policy is very very important America has been a nation that had to trade from the very beginning before because we one of the things we had with England was they wanted to tell us and we could trade with and we didn't like that so the first thing I want to be able with is some of the history I just want to read example in these berries what I call principles of American foreign policy foreign policy has to be consistent and you have to be careful of when you change because if you change it it creates a lot of anxiety the ability and the first was isolation and President Washington in his final address to the nation encouraged us to stay out of European entanglements because they'd seem like they were custom to fight and because a young nation not a rich nation and you want us status because we were protected on the bottom part of Atlantic Ocean and then kind of the western part by the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico and with transportation being what it was then that was a pretty good thing you would never if they got here they wouldn't be able to bring enough stuff that we couldn't deal with and so that lasted but during that time you know yes your book doesn't say it but it kind of deviated from it we came up first President Monroe with evandro dr. which made a statement they really did someone's challenging kind of enforced it that Mexico Central South America was was an album sphere of influence nobody else and then later on the spanish-american war because one day there was things that we wanted from China and other Asian nations training so that was one way of you and that's how we came up with pubes you know how I things like that we purchase Alaska and so we deviated in that way Teddy Roosevelt was involved in the spanish-american war but I brought up Cuba because Cuba is it's an issue that we had problems with from Santa Marta some presidents but he stutters needed when Castro defeated the pieces of peace voted the bestir the American government at the joints and they thought they could get a cast revenue with one gun so when he came to America made his first horn follows for trip the United States they were expecting to be in big hotels in New York he's taken African American and and so they you know they try to deal with other words but he wasn't he had his own agenda and then before I present Eisen that terms up he started this Bay of Pigs when Kennedy was like he went home but that was a failure to these work and so we just kind of build invisible wall between the United States and Cuba and to you know to the best it still exists so President Obama kind of took the first step to try to get away from that and president trunking has reversed and so that's why I brought people about the other places and so when World War one came around we were never we never did the initiative we didn't proactive war we react and in World War one Anna we were not involved in everybody's Wilson was the first president with a PhD in political science with John Hopkins he was a dreamer and he was always coming good ideas to try to eliminate war they need for war and then he played with all of this and and then when Germany began to use their submarines of law by ships and he's trying to get supplies then we were forced to declare war and then an interesting world war one Japan faultless and so but by the time World War two would switch and when he got down to the Paris agreement at the end of World War one President Wilson had put out you know seven points to being to be included in that peace agreement and so the war wasn't quite over but when he did the head the Germans get over the white flag we want to sell the points but when he wasn't aware of the degreed the agreements that have been reached among the Allies early in the war and one of those agreements was reparation Wilma started the war with the lost age and so he was not getting able to get the European allies to bend on that one we know what happened as a result of that inflation was extremely high in Germany and we create an environment for Hitler and Mussolini and so that's what happened is reluctant Wilson came up with the legal action but he may have lit Eclair he didn't take any Republicans with him when he went to negotiate peace over the breath and so when he came with the legal nation the Senate didn't ratify and it almost killed he was really unable to perform so that's where one still on the isolation where walk til we got involved that similar and some of the week HP Japan Italy Germany was the Axis powers fighting with the Oh eyes were chained got checked in China but they had a Revolutionary War there and they was kicked into he end up had been for most of which is now Taiwan so he wasn't much help but Russia talked with us and we had a we had the ability to manufacture a lot of weapons I mean almost every man that was physically able was 18 to 25 was in actually in the war and it took a lot of technologic here we had ratcheted all kinds of things that we had a bit of custom truth to fight the war because we were the primary supplier to both France Germany Germany England in Russia any lend-lease things that we give them the tools to fight the war Hitler made a mistake in corn and attacked Russia in the wintertime and the equipment's couldn't stand that cold another thing about Russia Cardon what I've read in history they really haven't been too successful fighting anyone outside of Russia but no one part of has defeat but anyway Japan the Germans use their submarines we came up with a system we just had a whole number chips going and the submarines you know under the water and they couldn't they hit one of the chip we get it and so we would get to supply of it but Japan bombed Pearl Harbor and I cop it was a would be that the aid of the warrior farm president hasn't had was a life wasn't over all the parts was he was in commander of the European theater I said haven't really got nothin or me after world war would I think he was a president of college and then he was called back yet and one of his great skills was the ability to get strong-willed people to work together Russia or not Russia Church of England head of general name my government he was wrong and we had Pat he was on the show but he was able to get those guys to work together and we won the war but a great thing had the impact of the wars you ja wohl and euro sermon that decide that put fear a lot of people people still debate whether that was the right thing to do but we saved a lot of American lives because Japan was flying airplanes and dry ships they weren't fighting today we were fighting the lil it's a different perception and by driving it dumping it drop it drop it into those two bones those commands is stealing right it was painful girl to kill of our objectives and but uh perhaps it's necessary because that kind of helped the wall come to the end I think Germany but we fought some bitter battles after that time the jury that's so after World War two we didn't want the same creed we don't want to create the same environment after World War one so we paid International Monetary Fund the World Bank a couple of organization to deal with them but we know President Truman hey farmer John Marshall and Secretary of State he came up with idea of the Marshall Plan and that was a very dition plan we actually made money bills in the Western world the United States came under war being the most powerful nation in the world we could have worked anybody the problem is we were crushed we couldn't we'd have a people weren't stayin russian-occupied if you don't occupied then you gotta fight them again so we came up with a new pie for a popsicle containment and the idea was contain communism where walls and when the syringe took place at the it World War two Russian except the ribs surrender from Germany East Germany mystery brilliant in North Korea and off Vietnam and we united states are separated in West Berlin and West Germany and South Korea and so that kind of split the world up into the communist blogs in China was kind of they got through the revolution the chain got check it just pretty much washed out because for most of what's called out but it's another name another term that's still each of the chapters they think that that's part of China Android green written on time they came back to Osaka there now because there's cultures similar but that's kind of the history of it and what happened under the containment was the war with first North Korea when inside in Korea because North Korea invaded South Korea and in order to live up with the container we had to get the ball and we had some pretty slick operators the Security Council of the United Nations which had already was ratified by the Senate they didn't want to make decisions when they go to war and any one of the permanent members could veto it and we were able to get to Russia away one day and he brought the Shepherd Bordeaux's everybody was there everybody pork and that's how we got you involved in we've got pressure with some data because they lit up speed televisions and and we similar situation happen in Vietnam but one of the points I want to make it seem that we don't learn a great deal from history you know just because I was in advance or O&I defense was an ROTC them the the colonel was a colonel in North Korea went away that he had a pretty he was lieutenant colonel and he had the Colonel's baseman do all the work the general science stuff but he pointed out that it was the worst wars we did very few Americans xscape that the captain they use I was things we have in America and they didn't let you know toenails a thing that was they do none of that stuff and that's what they were expecting they said welcome in the hey the guys almost fighting among themselves and some people decided to stay in Norfolk and explained how it was in a Korean War and he pointed out that the Americans would be set up with the gods and the people just coming to China was participating at war with me and they just kept the people coming and their weapons would melt them they'd overrun and so that was a tough war we had been a grant in the Civil War that's kind of his strategy to just keep them coming in we had more men they had will be into the darf at the head the south and then estimate the Emancipation Proclamation the South Dakota's later get its name so they used so much so much to keep them from escaping so that was few people we had to fight but that was a strategy so moving from we didn't win war we signed up armistice and that's why we're still there and so we moved from that to Vietnam so we should learn something from career in Vietnam France had just been kicked and I don't know in some ways we think we are invincible and we went into to be a num and got involved and we did it was no pharmacy or nothing we just left in the final hours we just left then no and in Vietnam he can up in this doing pretty well he brought large numbers that were fighting with us here but the main part is similar to have been said in Iraq is see the people you see em day you would think were your friends as when darkness came they were Unidas so you couldn't really determine a North Korean from I don't know I know if the other ones on the south they all look alike and some of the people who fought in that war earlier they usually you wanted to play on the propaganda that not for real Plato and it was all black Union they wouldn't fire them too much but the the Americans pick it up and then Heights guys me get you something make it set with dark and so they start shooting everybody but that wall we just left it it seemed to work this out okay now I'm every businessman so very much involved in trade so we stayed with containment until we went to Desert Storm was a I talked some Gemma's that new good Jimbo's and they argued that Colin Powell was one of the better journalist he had a plan to go into to attack you right get him out of a few way and when they didn't plan where that was done get out and you say cheese and that's what they did when he after that we in they bum we had 9/11 we couldn't get the the Afghan people to turn over bin Laden to the United States and you know I had a similar problem with some of the same ordinarily what they would do is use the CIA CIA would have got a boat within a year and we wouldn't create the enemy out of it but they chose to do something different and that different you know the conspiracy theories about that the decision was not really made I don't think president george w bush i think Dick Cheney Vice President Cheney and Rumsfeld I don't know I know that I don't like I don't hate you but Rumsfeld was one to work with was director boyo very very wealthy if they're very so we got involved with these wars and we've been there almost 15 years and still there and we're figuring out how can we get out that thing we maybe have to do the same thing we did and no but this is a lot of money loss a lot of many more men and women fought in that war gonna have mental illness and things like that and we don't even know how to treat it but we got to take care of those people they so cost a lot of money and in the question is what do we get out of nothing and so we ought to stay out of wars so this this happened before president also do with that like president mama didn't have a great deal but we did pull troops out of both Iraq in doing this new administration in the Isis came and they said we've got have to quit but the leaders of those countries won't tell us yeah those are their countries not have us and so so now we see what that we so that's the history some of the issues so the next thing we'll look at is the analysis of president Trump's foreign policy action wishes which will it's a slate UNC Clarissa Ward I'm gonna do soda more recently he pulled out of the we were not when we sign off on a Paris live doctor barefoot deed the Iranian agreement the inspectors were looking they were staying in two parties and when President Trump pulled out of that then became a problem so my point is we would make a decision it shouldn't create a problem in order to solve the problem now I don't think we want to fight that one to the ground any grant I don't think it would be very unwise because I don't think the military right now have the perseverance to go into another war and I think it'd be catastrophic for us so that's one of the things and I thought it should not have it see if it's working leaving the wall the other one is the Paris Accord I don't know about you I strongly believe that we are the catalyst people are people are and we uh we should be trying to take care of the ecosystem not destroy and that creates problem because we signed it when President Obama got out of it and into would probably unwind just like the situation you because we put sanctions on Iran we didn't sell I'll buy it very much nothing but the Allies had repeated to prohibit them from by at all and that's the problem that those are the problem the other thing is immigration President Obama issued executive order called the doctor for work he pulled out of that in his little scar no the other one he had another executive order given when those persons been here five years no felonies you know putting on some kind of legal status that was working he pull out of that now you have all these people coming in from Central and South America on the board of seeking political asylum which we you know the statute was to give me your target for every one of the United States and that's basis of value that we have most people understand it's a vague then how we reconcile what we're doing right now I don't know and I believe that to will lead to isolation in addition he's you know the North American Free Trade Agreement was signed when President Clinton was president started over George and it was working – you know maybe save me some time ago and I got kind of flipped over verbally we've divided though the large multinational corporations pretty much determined what happens whether its foreign policy or truth and what they do plan they plan but if the government plan is coming in and we believe that but if you don't plan as an organization you gonna make bad decision you look to look at options and second select the best option and that's what plan is about and so the option there was created environment from these similar lines and in Mexico and other places in South America and the belief that the the Latino nominee would prefer living where they are if it wasn't some tourmalet and they could make a living and they felt that that would reduce the number of people trying to get out here and and we don't we never have administered by immigration policy fair because initially you put in from Northern Europe the Italians the Polish Czechoslovakia they all were demonized when they came to the United States in Irish and in a headquarter system they didn't have that baby purr so the quota system kept most of then we brought the Chinese in alone with recently its lady to build a racer the railroad from east-west then once that was done well we began to do things to demonize the Chinese before and then when we got involved in World War two we put the Japanese some kind of count doing their time but this didn't happen even under President Trump this happened during those times so those are some of the things you go to in the traps that he's putting on China in other places chaps we need we recognize that the world war two you can't use tariffs because you trade with someone they go if you increase your the Grand Prix stairs so what's this game and I don't China sales much more to us than we buy just know they sell much more to us then we sail together and that's what adds to the balance of trade balance of trade deficit but these and but and so the president feel that this gives us an advantage but when you forget China has one owes a lot of money is these are paving will have real problems we don't have to tax it would have to go real high on everybody to make up for that and so that's some problem I guess the other thing you gotta watch what China's doing you know talk about whether or not a child is going inward age of the specific area of the world Africa and they have a different way of dealing they go in the old stuff infrastructure they do it and they don't try to tell them to be comedy so what we can have a propensity one Peter Daut be lack of arrogance and we don't know their culture their history and too many veterans don't know our own cultures and you gonna work with me you gotta understand the history culture to know how did the very you know be somewhat objective in dealing with and that's that's a big problem we have and what I said President Trump seems to ignore the history is I think he like Vice President Cheney mr. Runkle Thank You United States is invincible but we owe almost 23 trillion nobody else in the world over that much money we haven't won of wars since World War two it's been a lot of money and so in reality don't anyone heart of fear us and so we talk about the situation in Libya wouldn't happen when President Obama was there but President Reagan tried to kill just wouldn't where does the CIA say what's movie you wouldn't and because when he went back they had to change almost agreements at all and Libya Adam was best off in the world they didn't have it they didn't have the quantity that they have in Saudi Arabia Iraq Iran but it was the best quality and that's what that's what we were involved in controlling that in cut obviously you like in control and so that's what the things started getting a little bit and what I heard during the time I was you know I'm not I don't have all the tunes you know but it seemed like there was some disgruntlement within Libya and I guess what people we decided work with was proud and so that's tres the trumpets catch the world larceny by the u.s. is the greatest in everything internationally that exists as organization were created by the United States and it was sold to everybody even Russia a child to be members so that's what I'm talking in the brutal zone of ungrateful eyes turns disguised as immigrants globalism takes the world all at once one market one ecology one shared responsibility and it rides it has risen to the side with amazing degree in 1981 portable sense of the world population was living in poverty today ten percent tried was reported are living in poverty in the world so like I said it was the Nationals they plan to make things happen and they are do talk about poverty and so it seems to be working from there forth from from the US is not an Alan we are not we are more in network into the rest of the world in any other country and I don't think that that's going to go away president Trump first action relevance in foreign policy was to revoke everything created by prison Obama and I'm going through now and when I pointed out the way he was going with Cuba I think was better than it way it's going right now maybe trying to re-establish relationship because Cuba has really never done even thing to us but wheel tracking some places and a part of what make the Arabians really have more of a beef against us that we have against deal we the CIA has it started revolution in Iran but Royden powers the show did everything United States told to do and when camellia came back you know we had to go and then it changed their culture that's what I'm saying culture is important in the culture of Iraq and Iran goes back before God before the price and they are caused by anti-culture they feel that there's a better now we just have to accept that the way they already try to work within the trade you know in a fair way that they will benefit and not try to have an exhibit and that's the big problem I've grown through all these things that president Rocas ago you know just what makes even England you know we fought evil and as I look at history the dead remember France we may not have won the rose they're named Saints and we are and we uh we have problems with France basically because they won't let us tell them what to do and get president president Trump I thought there was a lovely Hitler didn't work out that way so we we shouldn't demonize people that have helped us in critical times we should work with them if they can't trust us to be there why would they deal with us there's no and that's what I'm saying we cannot beasts we are not self-sufficient a lot of things that we need for our high tech has the guys other places we don't have it you then some things we got to get from China and a lot of things that we need is in Afghanistan it's all in the racketeering so if we get isolated we come in serious trouble and the steps he's taking them is moving that direction another thing happened recently the Ambassador the United States will meet them someone heard him said something come true by President Roh and he got back to him in you talk about President Roh peasant girl strong communities are not known about it when he don't like him he said what I know the guy he's not a good guy nobody likes it but he said some things but he didn't say any more than what I had said is that he doesn't demean make wise decisions we can't make the decisions by intuition gotta have something better that he has I don't know what I don't care what people said I think water state Mormon have the smartest people in the government you can't get in they have a tough combination today most people walk past and they know a great deal about the culture and history of everybody in the world and president Trump listen sir any president does because the average person don't have it and use it to go about his business so I thought it was bad when he did that he also criticized the leader of Germany he says they in Canada in Mexico we do a lot of business with Canada Mexico we have trade deficit default we go they don't make things that didn't and so that's one problem the United Nations sheep blast of servicing United u.s. immigration pops a reflecting it she was appalled by the conditions migrants and refugees face and detention facilities are separated from their families and the tension should not be the norm father for adults even because you see some of the pictures of what regarding the adjustment in bitch places sleeping on the ground and all that kind of stuff and we have a sign and most of those but not people coming in illegal they are trying the same political asylum in many countries they are having real issues and people have been killed in trying to get you for the life hope they have a better life and some Lincoln told us one time doing this civil rights civil war that if we go to be on the khakhra see we need to practice of the preach if we're not gonna do that then we are to be what we are and we don't do we don't practice over we don't practice what we preach among each other for cause and and since the civil rights movement president should trauma animals but he's been more of his consideration has been more racist then you know since sensitive before the civil rights movement and any any emotions of the people that way and that's not good we don't need to divide over the issues that are not important really we need to be working and we need to come together we come together there's nothing we can't do but if we're divided it's hard to interpret that see the challenge is to find a way to promote human rug welfare in the world multiple multiple cinemas aggressive foreign policy based on purpose mostly a principal form of one that leaves as its ultimate objective the advancement of peace justice and Economic Opportunity a progressive foreign policy must entail sustained effort by the US government to advance the human good in every way possible the world the world improves pépin to negotiate and enforce enforce trees to eliminate weapons of mass destruction working to end conflict in reveal war-torn societies promoted sustainable development at the grassroot level and providing emergency humanitarian assistance to societies ravaged by disease ecologically of DeSantis our state collapse there's much that the u.s. can do to advance these objectives this should be done under the auspices of the United Nations and other mobile life multilateral organizations the real problem higher which is that for all is well although well you know it's an influence us and habits the world in which other major powers got to have stated what I miss Russia China India Iran Turkey we we have created an environment where if we out there then they gonna be against and by paying in North Korea the people who are to be directly involved it's not fair in Japan in China because the other people around that era and I think North Korea South Korea is willing to get back together as a nation I don't know what to put the content 70 but if we think that to me on home is going to give up his nuclear weapons you dream and basically what he's looking for his recognition you know they didn't have him bring him in and we know what he's deluded maybe we can influence him and through the person to not I don't think you know using an offensive way he will use it her defense and I don't think he knows what they were doing I don't think we do in the United States there was those dangerous weapons to do that for offensive because we may hurt more of us than him so that's that's better that's what I'm saying he seemed to like Putin President Putin and illegal car Korea he doesn't even believe his own CI I don't I can't understand that I think that's birthday the there is an imbalance between two kinds of psychological distinguished between emotions empathy to build your pain which supports supports recommends military interventions and are good at cultivated Kaufman cognitive so you have to eat born is born some consider was a psychological empathy in a cognitive empathy cognitive empathy empathy means that put in yourselves in the shoes of other people in the sense seeing how their world looks to them much of the problem of American foreign policy is simply failed to understand the perception of important actors clearly you know to calculate the likely consequence of IH and that's what I mean knowing their cultural history even though the consultation you could deal with but if you're just going down CBO's that's not gonna work and I think that wasn't just started by this president trophies it's been an arrogance that we manifest actually ever since World War two we think that nothing can happen unless we are bleeding and that may be dangerous so we can put ourselves in their shoes maybe we can see what they see and we can make better decisions I'm not saying we intentionally want to make better decisions but the way we are doing it is not working okay in when I was in 1950 dives at the course of American foreign policy there were a couple of things that frightened me that I didn't know one was we had b-52s in the air every day with artists above us that's scary to me I said someone go to sleep or had sleep and do drop that weapon on when I win deep trouble in HD and I was afraid of that particular when I was in Germany during the Berlin crisis they bothered me a great deal emotionally so we have to be very careful how we do the other thing is when I was supposed to go to make a decision to become good at dancer or conceived as an undergrad after that somewhere you had taken two years in Sicily they did you decide to go in if you wanted to I didn't like liked it so I didn't go before I got home I got a letter from the draft board I lost my military to fear me I better get an exact academic or otherwise I should be drafted right away that was he rising now president said troops to Lebanon and so you know we hadn't thought of great deal about the place the you know the other likes of the Palestinians you know at that time but groups we began because 90% of fellows didn't do it so we wanted to try to understand it did we went through we found that you know you look at the situation in usual and between years in the town stands is this dysfunctional family yes when was the son of Abraham and Hagar and Isaac was a certain that God promised Abraham Sarah and that's his mother it represents the Palestinians and Isaac represents and it's my understanding during the time they were scattered all over the world before creamer in the US they decreed that the Palestinians and the Jewish people got along quite well it was when we him with a new place for them that began fighting each other in my observation of that we have never been fair with the Palestinians we've been much more fair with the Jews but I think brought to his knees when Mitch and I hope came over the lecture that Congress not to ratify the arena Iranian degree they fight constantly and I don't know how long that's that affects me for – because it's starting what I said majora here's a nice once we reach some kind of decision the big problem whoever diamond has to understand how do you think and I think President Carter for whatever weakness he had in other words IV had a better understanding the relationship between the Palestinians and if someone followed through that revealed by the solution neither citizen to other one should exist but the whirling – both we must insist let's find a way to do it and but you know tree and one a little different from the other moving in the embassy from where it was to Jerusalem I think was a term of mistake and it creates feel pretty more problem because they've been doing it by selves we have to watch doing stuff in the level we need to work through international organizations and when we create things like we did we have to be willing to adhere to deceive a you know the World Court we don't want we don't want him to have any juice because put it somebody else yeah we got to be consistent we got anything that's what there's much that us can do to advance these objectives they should be done on the job how it is it is for all its wealth and influence we we United States inhabit the world for other maids – these people are all these communities you know Mexico need to be involved Argentina the zeal these are the merchants resources pretty rich and we need to learn it and fairly even though we used to find our document we have never dealt with internally and this didn't happen they don't present Trump where the president when we did all that and that's why there's the regular misunderstanding between Mexico in the United States in between the other there they have everything we need we can exist and we just dealt with them but they you know we they analyzed some of the refineries of all companies that wasn't good for them but they weren't treating them completely given repair parts but they are and so we have to understand that I think and I think citizens need understand we understand that perhaps we didn't convince like government but when they just tell us what they wanted to know so much of so much was not true and we buy into that didn't that's why international fairs when opposed in Washington none of the major major powers have the capacity to overall overruled the others in other words we kind of work together a given example and in Syria what recently wasn't able to deal with that is we Russia wouldn't let and Russia and China's wouldn't let us do it in Security Council water place sanctions home but China and Russia was selling weapons to Syria Savannah economic issues and they wouldn't let it happen and that's the point that we can't do it by self gotta work within through the organization that we create and try to get it done but we need to start talking about where we agree not where we disagree I don't think I don't from observation we don't visit the design of these rallies following the paradigm of the preceding observation Syria and North Korea the challenge is to find and wage for both human welfare in a world of multiple palaces we must identify the overriding objectives and persuade to keep layouts with Corliss around an acceptable outcome thus this will require diplomacy of a type that America largely is unfamiliar with one in which US diplomats bargain relevant making demand in other words we said we need to bargain with people negotiate with people not make demands and you may remember when you were young I and old man's a Joey something I couldn't do that's what I want to do and I think the same thing with Oh even you have that potential and that's bargains means compromise reason something recent uncommon benefit to all party rather than the man you got to do this I will use another weapon most other states act on these this basis as a matter of course we must also develop mechanism or Virdon and worse in providing aid to those and grace need by securing the essential elements of cooperation from allies in and I'm going to some things tongue American has we are the most given people in a crisis we deal with crisis we care about people but it doesn't last long are we went into being when Charlie after 9/11 and Houston is about to release Presbyterian folks and you know we've seen that we've seen the reform we agree that they need to do right about everybody and I've seen this you know high priest of them say we've done my smoke us assume the disappeared and that's what happened there that's what I'm saying years ago someone the Ugly American and it was based on we were so arrogant we thought we paint hexam any over the world and in best dangers psychologists distinguish between emotional empathy to feel your pain which supports recommended military interventions and are good at cultivating cumin if comfort of empathy means putting yourself first without repeating myself it's in how we had a world looks to them much of the problem with American foreign policy simply is paying to understand the perspective whether part of active again and nothing to calculate collective consequences and we need to manifest empathy and I don't think we see the people who are seen be passively see that's a sign of weakness but if you make a mistake you are to be willing to own up to and in people who are not able to they tend to be terrible if you don't we don't want to talk about that but empathy is have some reciprocal care of other people just as you have for yourself and and we don't do that a lot because again we do what the multinational corporation won't done and they want to make money and they don't care who the curtain and we can see it in relations between employers and workers in the United States today they used to manifest some care about it but now only one they don't benefit that it used to be reciprocal I'm afraid it with me he worked for he of TNT he gave his whole life I used to tell him not to do that but he didn't listen but he survived but there's still some pain of his stuff that he had go through because they had a system if they had three managers they were doing a praise on one be a loser and he survived all that and he see who has a larger look so that's the kind of thing I think that we have to look at – in material turns an investment is the conceived legitimate of our purpose in the region American policy has at least unleash a massive chaos and destruction and stimulated a worldwide diffusion of suno jihad ideology and violence they truly progressive foreign policy would start with the u.s. announcing for its own sake its ambition to dominate a progressive us strategy would seek to reasonably stabilize balance of power it would do so by recalibrating relations with traditional allies like Israel and Saudi Arabia which supports American quest Pavel for all is wealth and influence the u.s. as a dependent world the chance the chance themselves from negative consequences of the policies such as usual occupation of Arab Laird Saudi Arabia supports what you had it in you know the place to meet their problems right now it made a more practical porch would be – its engaged engagement with all the regions regional players all the people degrees and including their agent Washington must also began to respect the status and legitimacy in regional especially by recognizing his mom central role in the aspiration of Muslims for their political future America must come to terms with those striving to integrate his alliance of governance will participate because the disparate politics and genuinely independence do that either the same progressive policy would not only defend Obama's nuclear agreement with Iran but also pursuing a wider reapportioned with the red America must come to terms with the Muslim Brotherhood in a Sony context the lead in transnational champions of discord political gives them this is necessary not just for a better foreign policy but also increasingly to defend the US Constitution which is a threat to similarities especially those Muslims in a raft in America we must focus on diplomacy over war you know week we've spent trillions and there's no return for no and so we need to find words to find common ground not just threaten someone to destroy him unlike in something that seems like I got five minutes I'm new to you acknowledge that we're walking on two feet tourism doesn't progressive foreign policy means in and economics as well as the political fringes of the military professed profit ears it means lifting up while rejecting isolationism and recognized the obligation that come would be ended well conceived most powerful nation in history we need to reduce the multiple military budget will reject read the relativist urgent domestic priorities jobs education environmental protection health care and infrastructure if new foreign policy would decrease human humanitarian support for Refugees that other displaced by war and climate crisis it should support it should start women protected President Obama's diplomacy acts success the nuclear deal with Iran the normalization relation with Cuba and the Paris climate diplomacy instead of war in terms and militarism should be should be lunch they knew justice based foreign policy would mean and knowledge ins the US support for a two-state solution for usual in the policy should be revised to find a new a new approach perhaps this issue should return with the UN General Assembly in America should instead support they possibly so international law human rights to depart the legs point is the demonization of you in person care the u.s. foreign policy operate on a peerless principle that arranges for both the United States in the world these include requests for unchallenged privacy and difference to the national waters human terror humanitarian military human terrorization militarily he's distant dangerous arms departments and sales the treble ization of congressional oversight in policy regiments governed by pervasive sequence ian lives there for a tea strategy for moving from can peerless strategy to a peaceful solution must include the general to the democratization of our foreign policy with the american people exercising their rights as simpson in united states in this beer another appearance foreign policy would be based only respect for the United Nations Charter international law Virginia Geneva Convention the privacy of the UN Security Council in matters the matters of law or in matters of war and peace in the use of war only as a last resort it is a matter of national offense and only after the Coloma see options have been exhausted the end of the nuclear arms race included Martin ization is the workhorses scaling back on both military alliances in military bases overseas the demo democratization of foreign of u.s. foreign policy must put the emphasis on informative public about America's real security options including Arak superiority of the Blue Shield war in almost all cases it must be stress presidential Canada to the public and covers for all overseas military operation their lives the shift towards to my democratic democracy senator diplomacy would also enable a new era of global for operations on critical issues like climate change disease control pollution reduction conservation of biodiversity and management of it there's fresh water that's okay first so Calvin are going to sum up your report to us it would be that Trump the ugly orange American is not pursuing the progressive agenda would that's incorrect well what I use aggressive is not leggings I was talking about progressive is not it's not as far left as some progressives are I'm just saying an objective the objective for me to be objective and fair yeah something I think you said you said well we we should be engaging promoting democracy around the world we don't that's what we should return to be what we are well what do you what do you mean before we go huh well you know in most cases sound good but when you look at what actually happened it doesn't you know president Rumson he's not a racist he appointed the first Attorney General was before where he appointed people that denies the house and climate change that's what I'm talking about we need we hold on I said how values are good but we live and I'm saying these are values we need to do a lil buyer or not let's say we just like Russian channel we did have a military don't you think there's a huge disconnect between the American people's values and the values of the multinational corporations in to run things there's a great thing yeah the great different issue is the why I don't like to citizen but we are kind of narrow-minded we believe what sounds good and we don't look to see what happened as a result we are the perhaps have more churches and synagogues things like that any other nation in the world but we don't manifest agape love between their marquise those kind of things and when we use demonization to polarize divides people people line up on different sides and it and we don't do you don't have nobody self if we gotta kill us with with you know uh apartment we got a no-decision to retrain people with jobs that exist these report came out in 2016 the white man between 25 and 35 and the highest mortality rate in India is because they worked in unionized manufacturing industry they were trained skills my own brother to work or steel field he had a great skill as long as there were steel mills when the steel beam is left there was no need for this and most of them lost everything because advertising tell people get everything you want you know some pewter time we got to paint what you have dead you can't happen to a man of these me into the research turn to drugs how would you characterize the effect of things like the imposition of the Washington Consensus from the nineteen eighties always the promotion of every dictator and the the aberration of China which was a communist country and yet a demonization all India we like to deal the government like to deal with people who can make decisions and those are dictators but that don't do anything about the other people in the country they need to respect us but we don't want they would come into the United States you want them to do differently so that's what I'm saying that's you know everything now I'd like it's not like it was 50 years ago 60 years ago some could have the United States that may be yours we got a reward but the minute help is everywhere and so what people acknowledge but what the inconsistent work we say in what we do and you know we deal I don't understand why we deal with it you're more China we do with it we do something that a year the high-tech you if you have a internet you that's what you have and so but we don't do that to the extent that we're dealing with which other and the China's the leader of China he can make decision for the nation because they have some elements of democracy which Alvin were you aware that a female spokesman for the State Department admitted that the State Department had spent five billion to destabilize Ukraine did you hear that yes and that was during the Obama administration I'd say that a lot of this stuff that I talked about didn't start with prison from and you commented that he doesn't believe is on CIA and FBI were you aware that in a deathbed confession he Howard hunt gave a confession that in fact he men into the JFK assassination he was there at Dealey Plaza this was recorded there is a recording of that as reported by his son st. John huh were you aware of that no really wasn't very very bad report president Trump was his being elected was make America great again and what did you say mr. Blewett to those people that say that the economy is now strong as the other employment rates unemployment rates are low after Americans are enjoying the lowest and I get them mr. Fenton's history buddies quiet time how do you address the fact that all of these things that President Trump he's counting his success even based on your theories of potential isolationism that he has been able to in his and I'm not going to get but I'm just saying yet what did I say to my friends who are African Americans who are leaning towards supporting President Trump in a 2020 elected okay I want a dip of the first videos when President Trump says you want to make America great again that's a loaded word it means to go back to a four month period of time when some people were very subjective than in an end of charts you look at the situation on the latter part question about the jobs when President Obama became president and you know the UH Department began to decline and went down to four point nine percent and short before he left office and when he found we became president we had no problems and then we hate when President Trump became president so my thing is I asked of course what has he done to decrease unemployment but he criticized the reporting of Labor Department that you said that was you know the same thing is here fake stuff but now that he's president is right I know how that's done they can't be before drawing unemployment or maybe looking for a job and then I used to look at the job with a funding I think that we got to work with me I just talked with people that you know they're more there are some technical jobs that we bring people in from Asia in India and other places that have the skills we don't have my thing is we gotta talk to any farmer we got a train people we train people to do the jobs that exist and I don't even know where the university is a totally in sync with what word your new jobs are going to be someone need to know that in the university into it and train students to do that that's no he hasn't done that he plans to tax cut would do it I don't think so the tax cut did help the average person if you married and you you know wait maybe 11 or $12 an hour going to work 40 hours a week and that's gonna be like 43 that's gonna be together making 45,000 and if you got two or three children you poor and they get a little money but it's time to do nothing so I think he's just talking he made you see what we doing better him I think right after when Canada head of tax cuts you know early in his administration I think things look better than than they are now and he just says things that are not true and so if people believe that you sometimes they believe it you can't change them up yes I just want to add something on to that conversation you were just having and this is as of yesterday a question I'm going to get to a question okay I don't just add to that is that GDP what Obama was president going was that agility percent revenues were went up seven percent since Donald Trump's wondrous tax plan that one maybe this affects into the future speaking okay Jeannie piece three percent has reached 30 percent okay with added munition called revenues by one percent so whoever thinks this tax comment is a good thing to this country it doesn't know rudimentary in my opinion okay now to my next question especially based on your historical knowledge who or what was the greatest time as it relates to diplomacy exhibited by this country there may be multiple occasions you can think I might agree with you as it relates to contour if you've been allowed to finish the Middle East may look very different right now okay but there were other historical interests and once you think the projected itself diplomatically but afterward what – yeah that's where were through Marshall Plan and all those things NATO United Nations Southeast Asian artists Asia Treaty Organization that was a infrastructure to deal with issues short of war and I think that was probably the yeah it was because you know that didn't cost us better we controlled the international monetary exchange in the western part of the world and you know Germany was damaged great deal England France Japan and we use money to help them reveal and most of what they used to reveal they bought from us so we made by children and that was a good deal and they liked it and we liked it and that's one of the things our concern about president Romney to go back and look at why we did what we did and that's that's we did a lot of things they helped them because they needed help and it paid off so the issues that appear here really appear to be nationalism versus globalism would you agree with that well nationalism is when you you know try to focus internally of just what you're doing is here globalism is the whole world is involved and what do we like it or not it's a global world and that's what I'm saying that that's what we don't need to get isolating from yes I don't see those two terms as being the same I think they mean opposite to each other if you just focus it on the United States then our standard renders don't go down because we don't have the stuff to bank to keep it up noble ism is something that a lot of people misunderstand they said well that's where the cause of jobs being relocated is because that's what the most of the National Arctic operation war had nothing to do with it so NAFTA and have nothing to do what gap was something that reads proceeded after it was something they learned at the end of World War two that tariffs don't work and so he came would yeah it's a one way to move from that and then they came up with free trade but I never agreed with free trade trade as a three well that's what I like is fair trade we treat two people could negotiate something in a bokken the woman's not wanted losers were you aware that during the last year of reporting when we did have tariffs in 1998 tariffs brought in 490 I'm sorry than eighty three billion dollars I'm not aware of that and but anyway I know if you trading with someone and you put a Turk on them and that's where they gonna put one on you and I pointed out the situation between China in the United States because we buy much more from China than we sell each other isn't Trump trying to change that would help see anything he's done to change it they put tariffs on it because he feel that since we buy more they gonna pay more but the reality is the people who buy the products no pay it so you think we we should have about 800 billion deficit in that trade yo man I don't know what I haven't followed the numbers particularly on the trade deal the only thing I've looked at is deficits and I made a report of that several years ago but uh if if we made eight hundred billion dollars that you said because we're tariffs now we lost it so we lost it that we lost it in with China I'm tired previous to that in 1998 last year it was 483 billion number and Robert errors that we didn't get well I don't do we got it he'd hurt the deeper and didn't hurt it didn't because they had to pay about the products who's considered hey baby let's see we didn't have 21 trillion and death when we had Karis yeah but I don't think I don't think that I don't believe that has impact I think we the tariffs is a mistake and I don't know any hardly any prison things it's that's that's wise we need to we don't China a lot of money we like it was a big fight for China to be designated as the most favored nation him a lot of stuff that went on to get that done but we need to be we should have been getting into situation where is the reciprocal thing we're good the stuff that coming in from China we need to be looking at it to see these quality products we don't it just comes in and people biting someone maybe you make them secret killing us we don't know and no individual can know that so if the chowderhead up a hand i think is good to be dealing with China and Russia and when Nixon came up with a top I thought that was good you can't just ignore a nation like Russia you can't ignore a nation like China or India Turkey of a Brazil Argentina of Mexico you can't ignore those you need to deal with them directly and that's all I'm sayin deal with them directly work through international and maybe we get these problems because you know I you know I didn't follow any anything about I just know that research said world war two we decided that charts were not the way to go maybe come up with gap and that didn't work then we came up with an after but I tried to warn me but hidden feigned it most people to know they wanted to keep the people from comment to make it to United States from Mexico so if they could make money but most of them want to be there anyway they could make living it wouldn't be threatened to the life they believe it so that's what the plan is were trying to do we didn't have a network because we have deficit but if we don't try to make school a lot of stuff we get we won't get we won't have to say that I kind of find it cool distracting at the moment I'd like to have him happy whenever the time comes Shawn okay you just commented that you can't ignore Russia isn't this what trumpets been forced to do with these accusations of Russian collision well I heard the mother earth Georgia conference the other day and he said Russia didn't in a community election they are now and they did it over half president Truong now he said that's not true but that's what now it's your turn to talk so whoever wants to get up here and responded with the speaker has had to say so anyway before against okay Margaret yeah I think the the election of Trump really pointed up a lot of the socio-economic problems really I think the young the fact of the matter is I think the underlying American public know what's wrong they realize that their standard of living this model is not where it should be they know that they get in the wrong end of the people with trade for example and they know they're losing their well-paying jobs so this is why and of course both both major parties ignored this because basically both parties are in the pain of either Wall Street or multinational corporations basically you have the government captured by the call and I think that this is not quite fully understood but I think it's generally becoming understood certainly they know there's a problem okay so it so I think that's why so Trump comes along I think he correctly diagnose the problem the problem is that his solutions are totally farcical and and won't work I think as as Colleen just said we really need basic need is to reinvest in this country its people because it's the people that make the country it's a people that create the wealth it's certainly not the the ceos that run the corporations I've seen them close up and most of them are they get arrogant they they feel self-important and a lot of times they just don't know what's going on in their own companies because nobody will tell them the truth about things all right Zorich was a prime example they wouldn't listen they didn't want to know and they made the most ridiculous decisions you'd ever come across and what we said you know you're an underling and you certainly weren't owning up 10 million a year so to you but anyway so so we know something's wrong but we don't have an adequate solution to it now so then we get to foreign policy well basically America has been running a very peculiar foreign policy for a long time what we did what the Wester the people in the Western Europe knew about America was well understood actually it was almost totally unknown to Americans because they were fed you know the mantra and the dogma of free markets free trade wonderful cat but what what the what we understood was that America had a penchant for dealing in an underhand way with dictators because their main and an enemy I suppose was was socialist socialism that might occur in these our countries and so the anybody that was a right-wing dictator who would put down dissent was was immediately welcomed and this went on and on and then you have the famous Washington Consensus that was dreamt up in the eighties that basically if you ever come across the door of an equal economic hitman you know the way that worked firstly you do one way or another you make these Latin American countries and other countries accept loans and then after a while the reactivities at CIA it's a trip they can't pay back and then you've got them and so then you say well but what you've got to do is cut back all public spending because this country you see as a mania of austerity and of course austerity is always counterproductive and of course that's the main problem I have with the EU and Europe run by their Germans they they love what was Veritate and they forced it on things offered on Greece and Spain and etc and you seen austerity being a boost on the ordinary working people on this country it's also been forced on become the populations of Latin America South America and so on and it goes like this well okay you're the cut back on spending on health care education and anything anything to do with infrastructure unless we pay for it infrastructure and American companies of course come in and supply it so it's some of them capitalist imperialism forced on the rest of the world now that is well understood what's going on in the rest of the world and I think it's not China no of course China is a prime example of the capitalist system here thought they could get one over on China well it turns out that the Chinese outsmarted that actually they thought they can control it but basically China said no if you want to operate in China you operate under our rules we knew you can't take over our companies you know we all know you you can you can cooperate with us but you've got to give us up you got to give us our technology no technology and so on but we retain control plus the this is a National Bank in China and so all transactions go through the National Bank so they control what goes on and of course they've lifted millions of millions of people out of poverty but of course at Americans expense and I think this is all I can say about it is I've watched this going on for 40 years old I've always been talking to my friends about it because I could see what was going on when I first talked about this in the game in the 80s oh no no is it never happened well you know it's happened and of course as I said before many times England is gone to burn down the similar rathole as they say it's a good sellout actually break up we're just this last week there's a supplier military supply called problem those nineteen twenties that's been sold off to American product that could become so every week with England so yourself up same thing is happening here it this the foreign policy is at this hospital as a total disaster as I said they didn't listen to Lord Kings because he realized that they'll be after the world they would be imbalances income trade and his daughter I said they didn't listen they never listened the Congress seems to be brain dead they didn't see as I as I argued with Ted Rubin or know about the fact that Congress was isolationist they didn't realize that fascism was an existential threat to the Western world so they sat there and i think that england take it on the chin which they did two or three years okay now it's the same thing they're still brain-dead they don't see the the problems facing this country propylene and they not in properly invest native american people about the education needs attention health care needs attention and how they need attention with that i'll sit down I want to thank calendar that wonderful presentation these issues I've always noticed when he gives his presentation he has such an even keel about him and even when people come at him which they did quite frequently and well I don't know I haven't feelings about that – if a person gives up their time to prepare and actually has expertise in an area I don't think it's I don't know if people mean to be rude or arrogant but when you come at them like did you know this and didn't you know that it's sort of I don't know it's sort of demeaning and if you have a like Margaret said if you have an issue to speak up that's great when it's rebuttal timing I like it at rebuttal time but not to blow try to blow holes through somebody you can get up and give your opinion my I'm taking a very short live session isms political isms class and the man who gets the class says he addresses the polarities in our country now that they're just humongous and when it's like this nothing gets accomplished a revolution is to accomplish something not just butt heads and find up or something it's to get something accomplished Madeleine Albright the former Secretary of State I remember hearing her talk about how over the years the world has too develop diplomacy a manner of dealing countries dealing with each other respectfully and so he says that this professor says okay the way things work is you identify a problem and then you look at both extremes and you marker you mark off the extremes and then you try to find what works in between and you can't expect to have things totally the way you want it it's just it doesn't work that things don't work that way and for instance the gun issue well there's those that say no guns whatsoever and those that are forgiving a child a gun the minute they're born you know those are the extremes well if you have a problem mass shooting this huge domestic violence you look at what can you do that will be each one give a little bit so his premise is moderate Dimmick democrats work with moderate republicans we need both and that things only get accomplished when the moderates are working together not the extremes and so I think that maybe we should nominate Calvin Forrest is moderate in this presentation and people do tend to come at him more than others maybe it's because because he is a moderate they wanted we want extremes it gets our juices flowing you know a finest it's thrilling you know it gets our juices flowing that's one thing I've had a little bit of uneasiness about this whole thing you know you have to before give something well it does bring out interesting but it makes you think about your own ideas but on the other hand we have to watch that we're not increasing polarities because polarities don't work so anyway I have to Oh on the issue of Iran after he was talking about give a little take a little it could I know President Obama was criticized highly for his Iran deal but Iran has nothing but military I mean them what to say but a possibility of having nuclear warfare that's the only thing they have to do the only thing they have so to expect them to give that up totally it's not a realistic and if you want to find a war over ideologies there's a difference between fighting a war over ideologies which are things in our head and fighting a war over realities what can really work and so I thought that President Obama's playing in the world is putting other nations with him we came up with a plan that they would limit their access to uranium is that what it was to reign that that was more realistic and so that's all I have to say the book was Confessions of an economic hitman tie each other like perkiness and i got an interview with one of the jackals and everything purple spoke about in there is in factory now one of the things that wasn't brought up is through the Obama administration we still were following a international policy of being the world's policeman hourly faulting Trump for saying America shouldn't continue to be the world's policemen while at the same time we should have a strong military under Obama I got word from many people in the military that everybody was stretched incredibly thin supplies whereas we Bennett repair if there were supplies all the military was in deep trouble one of the things going on with Trump and I could say yes Trump is lying because when he actually got into office he found that we did not have 21 trillion dollars in debt we had an additional 21 trillion missing some of that was missing from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac most of it was missing from the Pentagon nobody mentioned that so we all of a sudden were 42 43 trillion in debt which is a much different picture so Trump being the savvy businessman he assumed was familiar with bankruptcy so he he began using the same fudging techniques that Obama was using on the numbers and somehow they gets them to look good I'm I'm seeing some progress but I think most of the progress is simply because everybody thinks the economy is doing good and they're acting on that principle and I know that when we were in the Great Depression nobody called it the Great Depression only afterward did they begin calling it the Great Depression we were just in hard economic times and then when we got through that when when we actually saw not only the light at the end of the tunnel when we came out of the tunnels when we started talking about how bad it was as far as policy Calvin mentioned the Korean War and the Vietnam War I have it from people who fought in the Korean War that we were not fighting North Korea we were fighting China both the Korean War and the Vietnam War were servant wars with China China was supplying troops and supplies and those are both United Nations wars that we were simply never allowed to win this is one of those things as far as who here knows who created the State of Israel do I have any hands the United Nations created at the State Israel now they're one of Israel's greatest detractors and now they're saying Israel doesn't have a right to the land their own although they're the ones who created that nation as far as Trump moving the embassy that was a campaign promise of several previous presidents who then never followed through on their campaign promise Trump did the outrageous thing of actually being good to his word and moving the embassy and it's a really interesting thing because it's a very interesting strategy because in Israel Trump is a great hero they're naming streets for him they're having Trump parades and things like that and yet then he is able to go after some of the criminal underbelly in this country and many of those top people might just be Jewish and he's not going to be facing the onus of being anti-semitic because he's been such a supporter of Israel now people either think Trump's an idiot or they accused him of playing 4d chess and I don't know that I can support either one especially but the other thing I can't really take on in five minutes I can't address the whole issue of the fact Trump is not pursuing the progressive agenda he's not a progressive much of America is not progressive we've been dragged along through progressed of administration's and now the American people are saying we don't think so global warming I don't know anything about global warming I don't think I don't think got Minnesota does anything about global warming another several other states up there who have had some of the coldest years in a long time and the glaciers have been melting for ten thousand years there are a lot of things going on that I know that a lot of money is paid out to global warming scientists I know that Al Gore said by 2013 not Florida be underwater and then he went and started the gore and blood carbon exchange in the Chicago Mercantile market and that didn't last very long but our Dallas City Council actually is spending taxpayer dollars my money my County City payments actually not that's not really true anymore but it was but anyway they're they're paying money for carbon offsets although there is nothing but United Nations agenda21 policy their act that's actually in the illegal act to be that's misuse of taxpayer funds in my humble opinion muscle opinion Russia Russia lost 20 million truths 20 million citizens fighting the Germans America did well in the war we owe the Russians for our victory the Russians paid dearly if Germany had not attempted to go into Russia we might be speaking German right now who really benefited by the whole global warming thing here's the irony it's the 1% of the 1% if you look at the leaders of the global warming agenda these are all extremely wealthy people our people are you know at the top of this council or that council it's not the regular people our statement was made no one is above the law we keep getting the comments no one is above the law you know doesn't that apply ok as it relates to Trump's foreign policy first of any precedent who claims that Tanzania and Navia countries and that Africa is actually a country it shouldn't be leading an individual country much less making their presence known on the world stage but in any case NATO and there's nothing by the way progressive agenda wise as it relates to having a sound and civilized foreign policy communication and relationship with the rest of the the countries in the world nothing progressive about that in fact even though the very hard right in this country somehow would like to transplant us back to life in the 50s when white was a brighter tomorrow okay we would and that's why I asked Calvin about the diplomacy we would do much better to take our stance on how we interact with the world back to the post-world War two stage because not only did we speak eloquently through many causes but you know it did throw us into the stage of being a world leader not because of might but because of right okay right now today when they total formed in nineteen we had 12 founding members today NATO has 29 minutes okay why was NATO informed okay it was agreed that we should all play nice with each other going forward okay and as time went on and also because Russia didn't look as nice as we might have thought they would be after fighting Hitler and so that was also merged not only to keep Europe in pack together and plain icing with each other but also to be a force against Russia should they become more aggressive well now we're 29 members in cold war has come and gone okay and right now Russia is very very dangerous not only for what we have experienced with an invasion of our own election office okay but who they're making who Russia is making friends with that would be China a very you know they emerging okay even though they had a relationship in the past and then they broke up but they're back together again now all right Korea is attached to China and North Korea but also they're getting very buddy-buddy with Turkey Turkey's a NATO country okay so where does turkey girl if Russia wants to cause trouble the road and by the way we have bases in Turkey and on those faces and throughout Europe we have rockets and guess where those Rockets are aimed I used to work for usurer in Heidelberg Germany they're all aimed north northwest northeast what have you okay so and Russia also coming over now was bad enough with Cuba right now they're in Venezuela high-fiving you know the murderous butcher out of Saudi Arabia who Trump has done zero about okay even though he brutally murdered a journalist okay Russia's also chummy with the rock okay so what's going to happen when maybe one of these people get offended by us it's Russia gonna jump in or if we get offend we offend Russia or vice versa are all these people going to jump in now and so much for NATO it's really really dangerous what's going on China is also taking over the China Seas alright and you know but Trump wasn't going to have anything to do with the trans-pacific patent know the truth okay that would have sent a lot more business and trade directly with Vietnam Japan Australia what have you know that was Crump scrapped by trunk okay brilliant brilliant okay he's the only one by the way that thing seek sustainable genius because it's the only one that mouths the words unless his sycophantic cabinet to sit there and praise Allah as he you know during cabinet meetings with the president present of course so this is really really dangerous times okay and also as it relates to Iran and that's not being in any kind of agreement with it and what else is going on in the Middle East and of course everyone hates Israel anyhow so we've already messed up and I mean the United States has messed up the Middle East dramatically with the Iraq war causing massive refugee issues that have burned over into Europe displaced people ripped them of their culture and then of course they're absolutely abhorred in these new countries because they dare to practice their culture there we've done the world no favors as it relates to our foreign policies okay John from the Fosters brothers you know John posted DOS and I'm sorry I said foster brothers and Alan absolute maniacs people in this country hear the word communist and they haven't a clue what they're talking about they have just because you know the revolution in Russia okay happen to do in the Czar Annie's family they had no idea of the appalling conditions these people worked under or lived under same with what is it in China and now and the Chinese you talk about you know their tenacity and they made the rules well yeah people who fought a revolution walked thousands of miles and drank their own urine to survive you bet at the end of that they're gonna make their own rules okay so really people need to educate themselves on what communist revolution is and then how communism is a political philosophy that doesn't have a very long hope attached to it because once you take over and feed the masses then attempt to educate them well once education kicks in then human nature and greed come into play then you know you don't think about the community per se you think about the individual so some form of capitalism is going to ultimately come to the forefront now in China's case and certainly in Russia's case as well most of that fortune rises to the top okay so you know and you make it a middle class out of there okay of some sort so you know with regard to the Middle East and what we do all we're doing is aggravating the Middle East problem as well by putting the stupid embassy in Jerusalem and that was only political pandering to begin with and you know if push comes to shove and they start to get any of these countries start to get aggressive around Israel at the end of the day it really won't matter the Middle East will not be a problem because Israel will take all of those countries out with it as it's going down because he had truly meant never again after the Holocaust okay so this is you know with sitting on little time bombs here and diplomacy is is absolutely warranted and with intelligent people driving the perfect on the in response lead betrayed Chiang kai-shek we had it's spoken of is w clean on skeletons above the naked communists and we really did betray Zheng Kai shek and mal got in there and I would say eighty million people is a pretty heavy price to pay and that's China's own numbers how many people died in the mouse revolution in Russia also if if anyone's read Solzhenitsyn's good archipelago you get a concept of how it was to live under the Soviets and how ridiculous that society could be I am against Marxism against communism because I believe we have a a euro-american civilization culture which judges the individual and when laws are broken prosecutes the individual and it's it's turned out very poorly to speak in terms of class and class warfare I think we saw that in the French Revolution where the guillotine got started and then ended up having such a thirst for blood it even took out she began the revolution and so I just thought that may be useful to bring up the only thing more costly in terms of human suffering human murder then Marxism communism if the records are accurate is Islam any different campaigns of Islam they are credited with 270 million deaths and there are folks in India who say we lost 200 million here we're not even sure we might have lost 800 million during the Islamic conquering of of India so as far as the Middle East I noticed some we have a Palestinian speak here not too long ago I feel I have compassion for their positions but the position is simply that the Jewish state shouldn't exist there they don't want a two-state solution they don't want it settled in in the sense of some kind of equity they want Israel gone so you have a problem I don't think we should even ever have been in the Middle East because you have people with millennial memories who never forgive and you get in the middle of that and how can you ever come haven't you always give a very good presentation but that's why we're here congresses yes concerning NAFTA and GATT before those happened corporations in the United States stayed here and they had tariffs because when a company would produce a car in another country say and for kind of virtually slave labor they could send it over here and compete against ours a lot cheaper rate so what tariff was put on it to bring it up to even competition and that's what tariffs were all about not to just go tag this country and get money here and there it was put on products not corporations but products of those corporations to make them compete evenly in the United States when NAFTA and GATT were put in and NAFTA was started by George Bush Senior and signed in by Clinton thousands and thousands and tens of thousands of American jobs vanished from the United States and went abroad to where they could then get back into this cheap labor I mean what that did was it fed the greed of the industrial complex I think one of the greatest political speeches ever made was Eisenhower when he was leaving office warning us about the military-industrial complex and to me that's the military industrial banking complex and that needs to be understood very clearly wars we should never even been in in Vietnam the Gulf of Tonkin has been proven to have been a fraud a slap in the face that was not even there those ships were never attacked by North Korea and that's been admitted by politicians oh I'm sorry North Vietnam and I had a friend who told me of this is hearsay but it fits with the logic of a lot of things he had a friend in army intelligence who told him that he saw enough paperwork come across his desk that he knew there was going to be a war in Southeast Asia and he knew that it was planned that not estimated that but planned that 50,000 Americans were dying that war what we lost 58,000 so that worked out very well for that planning there is a lot of interesting thought behind things like you and agenda21 and if you look at the Georgia Guidestones maintain the earth at a sustainable population of under 500 million you will realize what these dark state people are up to they want to kill most people on earth there is a good video that I think everybody ought to look at and think about it's called immigration by the numbers so you can look it up on YouTube the immigration gumballs or by the numbers the population of the earth is expanding at such a rate that we cannot survive as what we have here in this country if we take in all those immigrants because they were flood us completely and our entire way of life it'll disappear and we have been an example to the world in what we have done through what our founding fathers gave us with the Constitution and we need to make sure that our students study and understand in that Constitution and adhere to it and it does not need amendments we do not need to those people were smarter than most people who teach in college today in my opinion our founding fathers they knew that if we ever turn the money over to a private bank that through inflation and deflation and the corporate structure that we grow up around it ie the Federal Reserve they will steal all the property from people and look what's happened with all of these recessions and so forth people is their homes their businesses and on and on and on people who come for political asylum silently they still have to go in the ports of entry legally in order not to be illegal aliens they're still illegals if they don't do that we have a process that needs to be followed and that means you get in line and take your turn because we can't take them all in and if we try to do that we're going to be totally bankrupt in this country and I'll tell you what the best examples of what socialism does you can see in Russia and Germany and so forth those people who con you into thinking they're going to do all these wonderful things for you get power and greed and less for power is the greatest opiate in human consciousness and they get rid of the people who are going to be the most disappointed with them and that's the ones who got them in there in what was it in south vietnam after we left there yeah and they they rounded up in one night 7,000 people to come out in the field shot him because they knew they'd be the greatest disappointed people who would resist the government they were booty CIA and FBI I think this whole BS of the Russian collusion scheme was a cover-up for what Hillary Clinton did as Secretary of State in uranium one twenty percent of our uranium going to Russia that in my opinion is total treason and she should be prosecuted according to the law for that and I think the Russian collusion story which it's been very evident that there's nothing to it that it was designed to impede Trump's progress and doing anything that he wanted to do to try to stalemate that government and to cover up what the Clintons had done after that uranium one transfer of that uranium Bill Clinton went over there and got paid a half a million dollars for giving a speech this is outrageous and the Clinton Foundation received millions of dollars after that it's just those people have well I'm not gonna go any further into them let's talk about Syrian Assad Assad to my understanding is the only leader in the Middle East who actively protects Christians and Jews in his country and we wanted that country we want to get rid of him because he resisted putting a pipeline through there which would sell natural gas up to Europe and knock out Russia's sale of natural gas into Europe and Assad didn't want that pipeline going through there and that's been the biggest thing about Assad why he's so bad Isis are the ones who use chemical weapons against the people they are not Assad Assad's background is a medical doctor any people who have gone over and actually interviewed that what we've been saying and our news media if you want to believe it is just not true the CIA and the FBI have been corrupt as hell through these last years with that uranium one with the uranium the Russian collusion BS a lot of people need to be prosecuted and I think some will be soon I hope so you're cutting me off I just want to take one minute to say that the Russian collusion and Russian infiltration of our electoral system is not a hoax okay and not only is it not a hoax okay because I believe every word that came out of my mouth for backup support okay Mitch McConnell has a 3.5 million dollar PAC run by a Russian oligarch connected to the Russian government okay he also landed a write a contract or there is a Russian company that built a 220 million dollar facility in Kentucky okay the fact that rich McCollum Mitch McConnell won't even allow a the protection of our elections by blocking that bill this week that would have guaranteed that one you know we have proper election securities it's a federal mandate nor a state deal and I think the balance is always going to be the safest way to go and secondly that the second requirement within this bill was that if anyone was ever contacted by a foreign country in an election that they are to report it to the FBI okay because obviously none of that happened in this last go-round so I just wanted to to say that and it's there's enough information out there okay that would probably go well beyond 428 pages I guess I'm the last one standing anyway here to thank our speaker I thought I did a great job here tonight I think I've learned all the response that you have here it's really good I look at I look at the future what we hold you brought up different things that I have a whole thing here anyway and consider like you know climate change is a real part of what is our early adversely affecting us and it's growing worse by the day however part of it so many part of the ants lot we face machines replace people machines don't pay taxes this going on around the world you want to raise society could possibly share the multiple activities and working hours every way can be done I'm an advocate for a shorter work day and I think that that's part of what brought our country 1938 they they shorten the work day in this country they went from ten hours to eight hours they they went to 60 hours of 40 hours and as a result we we were able to survive through World War Two and Beyond and women got in the workforce a lot of things happen and if you're looking at what's going out of the world machines do replace taxes our society is hurting we have a lot of people out of work now we have a lot of people have been of work that a lot of the employment rolls they've been out of work for over a year and they could not get down and climb to none of the roles they're not common and I think that that SME that has to be you have to recognize that gains in employment to a transfer an energy system but realistically itself is that the president set the eternity growth factor consider the bathtub industry we when when mass produce pants I became a bowl it transformed everything deployment Grover do growing demand yet eventually everybody Annabeth that ain't growth factor is not what it used to be what we really need is an economic engine that will support all the programs such a limitation of student debt free college education single-payer medicare-for-all effectively fighting climate change with a green new deal or whatever works the best bets and reduce our carbon emissions be shutting down in the elimination of private prisons the establishment of a trade policy it works for the interests of working people in this country we are now 22 trillion dollars in debt or more and the opposition is going to beat us up and how we're going to pay for these and other programs in society will toss and turn without the education not to accept anything that's what happened in the last election that will happen again what we need to do when we pass the MS a lot the Fair Labor Standards Act workday is reduced we went through World War two with that and went beyond that today at the end of the if we were to take the atoms in love the Fair Labor Standards Act and reduce the workday from sixty eight to six hours cut the day and not cut the daily pay and increase over time from time-and-a-half to double time to outweigh the cost of fringe benefits we would reemployed twenty five million people in gainful work we make tax traitors taxpayers we're looking at very government a two-fold benefit of increased tax revenue and reduced unemployment but also create an economic engine to drive us forward through the next generation what enables all these programs realize about increasing the debt in fact reducing it there's a fly in the ointment corporation will seek to leave the country to go over labor and environmental costs are cheaper this is a lesson as essentially put tariffs on goods of American corporation that seek to leave our country and then sell back goods produce elsewhere to the citizens of our country consider it as needed amendments to the antitrust laws they can avoid tariffs by producing in this country would have sold in this country that's and that was brought up here earlier and we have another problem address there is a corporate control in our government if we it still stands we have the best Congress when it can bang what can we do it was the problem we forces in United what will Congress for my view they will hope for a free airtime in the last 90 days of a general election Labor Day to Election Day the media won't like it but they can always reduce the price of advertising during this period to make up the difference will be a public service Congress will vote for because they will be able to keep the money they raised there's virtually no history of it in this country of an incumbent being defeated by a challenger in a general election but then some challengers will defeat some incumbents in general elections that everything will change Congress will end up representing the people of who the elected instead of representing those who by their votes in Washington DC that's what we need then we'll have no problem putting tariffs on goods that manufactured elsewhere we can create an economic engine it will stand the test of time by shortening the work date and consider shortening the work week without any loss of pay without fear of corporation packing their bags and leaving the country will have address the rigors of automation we can implement them any programs we need with a full society will back us up I think I'll quit right here thank you well I want to thank you for you rebuttals I just want a couple of things make couple statements the young lady had been about I guess everybody to see a person I tried looking everybody objective you know I've watched presidents wrong twenty years before you and I found it amusing was not credible and I don't see him any different today he did he that was done and it was documented they did and they still are and the interview in the directive they helped the eye and he said the same thing and we need to do something to do it that's we we have benefited in lectures in the trenches and that's what I'm saying about the equity we need to practice with the preach I think that's a real important thing president Trump is this not very another person you never tell the truth and I can't understand how you support it and I don't understand that but dealing with the usual things some stuff uh Preetam about Christians and support you know you true is because they feel it's a baggage on that time when most of the Jews would be killed and remain we made Christmas that's that's what they're looking at and I think that's a terrible thing to be doing as Christians but uh the the thing England in the United States which is a part of the United Nation what is what created the nation after where wants you now that's been very very the United Nation was there they probably did it through the United Nations but the other major actors I you know I defending about his right to believe what the information tell them to believe and that's what I do what I believe I believe in about repeal is reason I continuously I think for all your comments behavior well that's it for tonight they kick us out of here at 10:30 that's when they close our speaker's here we wanna talk to him and see all next week hopefully
