  • 00:00:00.140 --> 00:00:05.010
  • [ANNOUNCER] LIVE FROM WASHINGTON D.C. JAY SEKULOW
  • 00:00:05.020 --> 00:00:09.070
  • LIVE. PHONE LINES ARE OPEN FOR YOUR QUESTIONS RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:00:09.080 --> 00:00:15.000
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:00:15.010 --> 00:00:28.050
  • AND NOW, CHIEF COUNSEL FOR THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW
  • 00:00:28.060 --> 00:00:30.170
  • AND JUSTICE, JAY SEKULOW! JAY SEKULOW: HEY, WELCOME BACK TO
  • 00:00:30.180 --> 00:00:33.220
  • THE BROADCAST. BIG SHIFT IN STRATEGY ON THE SITUATION WITH
  • 00:00:33.230 --> 00:00:37.270
  • AFGHANISTAN. WE'RE GOING TO GIVE A FULL ANALYSIS ON THIS. IT WAS
  • 00:00:37.280 --> 00:00:40.120
  • A SIGNIFICANT CHANGE IN WHAT HAS BEEN AMERICAN POLICY FOR,
  • 00:00:40.130 --> 00:00:43.130
  • LITERALLY, 20 YEARS; REALLY LONGER THAN THAT, BUT CERTAINLY
  • 00:00:43.140 --> 00:00:47.170
  • WITH THE ENGAGEMENT IN SOUTH EAST ASIA, WITH AFGHANISTAN, BUT
  • 00:00:47.180 --> 00:00:51.240
  • ALSO AS IT RELATES TO THE WHOLE WAR ON TERROR. THIS WAS A BIG
  • 00:00:51.250 --> 00:00:55.010
  • SHIFT. ONE OF THE MOST SIGNIFICANT ASPECTS OF THIS WAS
  • 00:00:55.020 --> 00:00:58.150
  • THAT THE PRESIDENT, WITHOUT ANY REAL HESITATION WHATSOEVER,
  • 00:00:58.160 --> 00:01:02.190
  • SAID, LOOK, WE'RE OUT OF THE NATION BUILDING BUSINESS. WE ARE
  • 00:01:02.200 --> 00:01:05.220
  • NOW FOCUSING ON THE TERRORORISM KILLING BUSINESS; KILL THE
  • 00:01:05.230 --> 00:01:10.050
  • TERRORISTS, NOT NATION BUILDING. SO I THINK, JORDAN, I LOOK AT
  • 00:01:10.060 --> 00:01:13.180
  • THAT AND I SAY THAT IS A SIGNIFICANT SHIFT AS TO WHERE
  • 00:01:13.190 --> 00:01:17.180
  • THE COUNTRY HAD BEEN. WE'VE GOT A LOT COVER, BUT THAT WAS A BIG
  • 00:01:17.190 --> 00:01:21.140
  • ONE. JORDAN SEKULOW: YEAH, IT IS. IT'S A HUGE CHANGE FROM BOTH
  • 00:01:21.150 --> 00:01:24.150
  • THE BUSH AND OBAMA ADMINISTRATIONS. THE BUSH
  • 00:01:24.160 --> 00:01:28.240
  • ADMINISTRATION, OBVIOUSLY, WAS ATTEMPTING TO NATION BUILD IN
  • 00:01:28.250 --> 00:01:31.210
  • COUNTRIES THAT JUST WEREN'T HAVING IT, AND HAVE NOT BEEN
  • 00:01:31.220 --> 00:01:34.260
  • VERY SUCCESSFUL, UNFORTUNATELY. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE IF YOU
  • 00:01:34.270 --> 00:01:37.210
  • COULD CONVERT PLACES LIKE AFGHANISTAN AND IRAQ INTO
  • 00:01:37.220 --> 00:01:40.240
  • PEACEFUL DEMOCRACIES, BUT THAT HAS NOT BEEN THE EXPERIENCE IN
  • 00:01:40.250 --> 00:01:44.290
  • RECENT HISTORY, BECAUSE THIS IS NOT LIKE DEALING WITH POST-WAR
  • 00:01:45.000 --> 00:01:49.220
  • WESTERN EUROPE, WHICH WAS KIND OF LIKE THE MARTIAL PLAN IDEA.
  • 00:01:49.230 --> 00:01:53.270
  • IT JUST HAS NOT WORKED. SO INSTEAD, THE IDEA HERE IS NOT TO
  • 00:01:53.280 --> 00:01:57.240
  • GO IN AND TAKE OVER AFGHANISTAN, IT'S NOT EVEN TO GO IN AND TRY
  • 00:01:57.250 --> 00:02:00.260
  • AND CHANGE THE VALUES OF THE AFGHAN PEOPLE. IT IS TO GO AND
  • 00:02:00.270 --> 00:02:05.200
  • DO ONE THING: KILL TERRORISTS, WHETHER THEY BE ISIS TERRORISTS,
  • 00:02:05.210 --> 00:02:10.030
  • AL QAEDA TERRORISTS, -TALIBAN. -I MENTIONED YESTERDAY ON THE
  • 00:02:10.040 --> 00:02:12.180
  • BROADCAST, OSAMA BIN LADEN'S SON, WHO HAS NOW AGED AND HAS
  • 00:02:12.190 --> 00:02:18.020
  • KIND OF TAKEN OVER THE LEADERSHIP OF AL QAEDA AND TRIED
  • 00:02:18.030 --> 00:02:21.020
  • TO REINSPIRE THAT GROUP, WHICH IS MORE INTERESTED IN THE LARGER
  • 00:02:21.030 --> 00:02:24.060
  • TERROR ATTACKS. AND OF COURSE, THE PRESSURE ON PAKISTAN AS WELL
  • 00:02:24.070 --> 00:02:27.230
  • IN HIS SPEECH. -I'M GOING TO POINT OUT THE PRESSURE ON
  • 00:02:27.240 --> 00:02:29.180
  • PAKISTAN BECAUSE, REMEMBER, FOR, LITERALLY, 9 YEARS, OSAMA BIN
  • 00:02:29.190 --> 00:02:34.140
  • LADEN, OR AT LEAST 6 OF THOSE YEARS, WAS LIVING IN PAKISTAN IN
  • 00:02:34.150 --> 00:02:38.030
  • THE SHADOWS OF A MILITARY BASE, AND THEY LET HIM LIVE THERE. AND
  • 00:02:38.040 --> 00:02:42.260
  • THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE AN ALLY OF THE UNITED STATES. SO LISTEN
  • 00:02:42.270 --> 00:02:44.270
  • TO WHAT THE PRESIDENT SAID, THIS IS #31: PRESIDENT TRUMP: THE
  • 00:02:44.280 --> 00:02:49.290
  • NEXT PILLAR OF OUR NEW STRATEGY IS TO CHANGE THE APPROACH IN HOW
  • 00:02:50.000 --> 00:02:56.200
  • TO DEAL WITH PAKISTAN. WE CAN NO LONGER BE SILENT ABOUT
  • 00:02:56.210 --> 00:03:01.190
  • PAKISTAN'S SAFE HAVENS FOR TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS, THE
  • 00:03:01.200 --> 00:03:04.250
  • TALIBAN, AND OTHER GROUPS THAT POSE A THREAT TO THE REGION AND
  • 00:03:04.260 --> 00:03:10.050
  • BEYOND. -SO THE APPROACH ON PAKISTAN IS VERY DIFFERENT THAN
  • 00:03:10.060 --> 00:03:14.230
  • WHAT IT HAD BEEN IN THE PAST. WE'RE GOING TO GET INTO THE, BY
  • 00:03:14.240 --> 00:03:16.170
  • THE WAY, RULES OF ENGAGEMENT HAVE CHANGED, THE NATURE OF REAL
  • 00:03:16.180 --> 00:03:19.180
  • TIME DECISIONS NOT BEING MADE BY LAWYERS. WE'RE GOING TO GET OUR
  • 00:03:19.190 --> 00:03:22.150
  • LAWYERS TO TALK ABOUT THAT. BUT WE'RE GOING TO GO THROUGH, IN
  • 00:03:22.160 --> 00:03:25.120
  • THE NEXT SEGMENT, KIND OF THE ANALYSIS. WE WANT YOUR REACTION
  • 00:03:25.130 --> 00:03:27.160
  • TO ALL OF THIS; YOUR REACTION TO THE PRESIDENT'S SPEECH AND YOUR
  • 00:03:27.170 --> 00:03:29.250
  • REACTION TO THIS SHIFT IN STRATEGY, AND ALSO GOING BACK
  • 00:03:29.260 --> 00:03:34.090
  • INTO AFGHANISTAN. THERE MAY BE SOME CONCERN ON THAT AS WELL.
  • 00:03:34.100 --> 00:03:36.220
  • 1-800-684-3110, 800-684-31110. IT WAS INTERESTING, LOGAN, I
  • 00:03:36.230 --> 00:03:42.270
  • THOUGHT, IN THE BEGINNING OF THE SPEECH THE PRESIDENT WAS UPFRONT
  • 00:03:42.280 --> 00:03:46.150
  • ABOUT THE FACT THAT HE HAS CHANGED HIS POSITION ON THIS,
  • 00:03:46.160 --> 00:03:49.030
  • AND BASED IT ON REAL DATA HE GOT FROM HIS MILITARY OFFICIALS.
  • 00:03:49.040 --> 00:03:52.080
  • LOGAN SEKULOW: YEAH, A LOT OF PEOPLE ENJOYED THE SPEECH; THE
  • 00:03:52.090 --> 00:03:53.240
  • FACT THAT HE'S WILLING TO EVEN SAY, YOU KNOW, IT'S DIFFERENT
  • 00:03:53.250 --> 00:03:55.210
  • WHEN YOU'RE BEHIND THE DESK, WHEN YOU'RE BEHIND THE OVAL
  • 00:03:55.220 --> 00:03:57.130
  • OFFICE, THINGS CHANGE. AND BEING ABLE TO ACTUALLY GO OUT AND SAY
  • 00:03:57.140 --> 00:03:59.260
  • THAT, I THINK IS AN INTERESTING POINT THAT A LOT OF PRESIDENTS
  • 00:03:59.270 --> 00:04:02.100
  • AND A LOT OF POLITICIANS WOULD NEVER SAY. GOING OUT AND SAY,
  • 00:04:02.110 --> 00:04:04.240
  • LOOK, THINGS ARE GOING TO BE ALTERED BASED ON THE INFORMATION
  • 00:04:04.250 --> 00:04:06.210
  • THAT YOU KNOW. -ALRIGHT, SO WE ARE GOING TO TAKE YOUR CALLS
  • 00:04:06.220 --> 00:04:09.050
  • WHEN WE COME BACK FROM THE BREAK. WE'RE GOING TO BE JOINED
  • 00:04:09.060 --> 00:04:10.230
  • BY OUR MILITARY EXPERTS, COLONEL SKIP ASH, AND COLONEL WESS
  • 00:04:10.240 --> 00:04:13.160
  • SMITH. THEY'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THESE ISSUES. THEY'VE
  • 00:04:13.170 --> 00:04:16.020
  • SERVED, WESS HAS SERVED IN THE MIDDLE EAST REGION. SKIP HAS
  • 00:04:16.030 --> 00:04:19.060
  • STUDIED IT EXTENSIVELY BOTH IN THE PENTAGON AND OUT. WE'RE
  • 00:04:19.070 --> 00:04:21.290
  • GOING TO BE BACK WITH A LOT MORE AND AS WE GO TO BREAK, YOU PRAY
  • 00:04:22.000 --> 00:04:25.160
  • FOR OUR MEN AND WOMEN SERVING OUR COUNTRY, DEFENDING OUR
  • 00:04:25.170 --> 00:04:29.040
  • FREEDOMS. BACK WITH MORE IN A MOMENT.
  • 00:04:29.050 --> 00:04:30.290
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:04:31.000 --> 00:04:36.030
  • JAY SEKULOW: HEY, WELCOME BACK TO
  • 00:04:36.040 --> 00:04:37.100
  • THE BROADCAST. BIG SHIFT IN STRATEGY ON THE SITUATION WITH
  • 00:04:37.110 --> 00:04:40.120
  • AFGHANISTAN-GOING BACK IN. AND THIS IS AN INTERESTING DYNAMIC.
  • 00:04:40.130 --> 00:04:45.210
  • I'VE GOT COLONEL WESS SMITH HERE WITH US IN OUR MEDIA CENTER. AND
  • 00:04:45.220 --> 00:04:48.130
  • JOINING US FROM OUR CAMPUS AT REGENT UNIVERSITY IS COLONEL,
  • 00:04:48.140 --> 00:04:52.250
  • THESE ARE BOTH RETIRED, BUT YOU ALWAYS WANT TO SAY THAT, COLONEL
  • 00:04:52.260 --> 00:04:56.140
  • SKIP ASH. HEY, SKIP, LET ME START WITH YOU ON THIS. THE
  • 00:04:56.150 --> 00:04:58.110
  • NATURE OF THE SPEECH, THE TONE, BUT ALSO THE SPECIFICS HERE
  • 00:04:58.120 --> 00:05:01.280
  • ABOUT THE, THIS IS A SIGNIFICANT SHIFT IN STRATEGY. COLONEL SKIP
  • 00:05:01.290 --> 00:05:05.210
  • ASH: I THINK IT DEFINITELY IS. THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION GOT TO
  • 00:05:05.220 --> 00:05:09.020
  • THE POINT THEY DIDN'T WANT TO LOSE, BUT THEY DIDN'T WANT TO
  • 00:05:09.030 --> 00:05:11.080
  • PUT OUT THE EFFORT TO WIN. SO THEY COMMITTED ONLY WHAT IT
  • 00:05:11.090 --> 00:05:15.030
  • WOULD TAKE NOT TO LOSE AND, THEREFORE, IT JUST DRONES ON AND
  • 00:05:15.040 --> 00:05:18.180
  • ON AND ON. AND WE TAKE CASUALTIES HERE AND THERE BUT WE
  • 00:05:18.190 --> 00:05:21.000
  • NEVER ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING AND THE ENEMY COMES BACK. HERE WE
  • 00:05:21.010 --> 00:05:23.090
  • HAVE A SHIFT IN STRATEGY. THE PRESIDENT HAS SAID, OKAY, WE'RE
  • 00:05:23.100 --> 00:05:26.230
  • GOING TO GO IN, WE'RE GOING TO SEND MORE TROOPS. WE'RE GOING TO
  • 00:05:26.240 --> 00:05:29.020
  • GO IN TO WIN. WE'RE GOING TO HAVE RULES OF ENGAGEMENT THAT
  • 00:05:29.030 --> 00:05:32.050
  • MAKE SENSE IN A COMBAT SITUATION. AND WE'RE GOING TO
  • 00:05:32.060 --> 00:05:34.180
  • GIVE THE EXPERTS IN THE AREA, THE COMMANDERS ON THE GROUND,
  • 00:05:34.190 --> 00:05:38.150
  • THE OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE THOSE DECISIONS, BECAUSE THOSE
  • 00:05:38.160 --> 00:05:41.120
  • DECISIONS HAVE TO BE MADE IN A TIMELY MANNER. YOU CAN'T COME
  • 00:05:41.130 --> 00:05:44.030
  • BACK TO WASHINGTON D.C. AND HAVE A PROCESS WHERE YOU GO THROUGH
  • 00:05:44.040 --> 00:05:47.270
  • STAFFING EVERYTHING. THE MILITARY KNOWS HOW TO DO ITS
  • 00:05:47.280 --> 00:05:50.150
  • JOB. YOU NEED TO GIVE THEM THE AUTHORITY TO DO IT. AND I THINK
  • 00:05:50.160 --> 00:05:53.220
  • WE'RE GOING TO HAVE, WE'RE GOING TO SEE CHANGES QUICKLY. -WESS,
  • 00:05:53.230 --> 00:05:57.120
  • WHAT DO YOU VIEW AS THE MOST SIGNIFICANT ASPECT? NOW YOU SAID
  • 00:05:57.130 --> 00:05:59.150
  • SOMETHING THAT'S PRETTY SOBERING, TOO, AND THAT WAS YOU
  • 00:05:59.160 --> 00:06:01.250
  • SERVED AS THE CHIEF CHAPLAIN IN DOVER. COLONEL WESS SMITH:
  • 00:06:01.260 --> 00:06:04.240
  • RIGHT. -WHICH IS WHERE THE KILLED IN ACTION CAME BACK.
  • 00:06:04.250 --> 00:06:06.150
  • -RIGHT. -SO WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT 4.000 OR 6.000 OR WHATEVER
  • 00:06:06.160 --> 00:06:08.210
  • THE NUMBER IS, AND ALSO ENGAGING THE ENEMY, -RIGHT. -YOU'RE
  • 00:06:08.220 --> 00:06:12.080
  • GOING TO HAVE CASUALTIES. -YEAH, WE'RE NOT ONLY CHANGING
  • 00:06:12.090 --> 00:06:13.230
  • THE NUMBERS, BUT WE'RE CHANGING THE MISSION OF OUR TROOPS TO GO
  • 00:06:13.240 --> 00:06:17.020
  • OUT AND FIND AND KILL TERRORISTS. AND THIS IS JUST ONE
  • 00:06:17.030 --> 00:06:21.000
  • OF THE REALITIES. COMBAT OPERATIONS ARE DANGEROUS AND IT
  • 00:06:21.010 --> 00:06:25.220
  • IS REGRETTABLE, BUT IN ORDER TO ACCOMPLISH THIS MISSION, WHICH I
  • 00:06:25.230 --> 00:06:28.220
  • THINK IS NECESSARY, AND I'M GLAD THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP IS TRUSTING
  • 00:06:28.230 --> 00:06:31.180
  • HIS GENERALS, MORE SOLDIERS, SAILORS, AIRMEN, MARINES, WILL
  • 00:06:31.190 --> 00:06:35.110
  • BE PUT IN HARM'S WAY. AND YES, THOSE WHO ARE KILLED IN ACTION
  • 00:06:35.120 --> 00:06:38.140
  • AND WOUNDED IN ACTION, WE CAN COUNT ON THOSE NUMBERS GOING UP
  • 00:06:38.150 --> 00:06:42.170
  • SOMEWHAT. BUT THIS IS A SEISMIC CHANGE IN OUR STRATEGY THERE,
  • 00:06:42.180 --> 00:06:47.190
  • JAY. I REMEMBER BACK WHEN PRESIDENT OBAMA WAS THE
  • 00:06:47.200 --> 00:06:50.080
  • PRESIDENT, AND STANLEY MCCHRYSTAL HAD GIVEN HIM A
  • 00:06:50.090 --> 00:06:53.000
  • REQUEST FOR HOW TO WIN IN AFGHANISTAN. -YEAH. -OF
  • 00:06:53.010 --> 00:06:55.220
  • COURSE, GENERAL MATTIX SAYS WE'RE NOT WINNING NOW, AND HE
  • 00:06:55.230 --> 00:06:57.200
  • ASKED FOR A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF TROOPS. NOT ONLY DID PRESIDENT
  • 00:06:57.210 --> 00:07:02.010
  • OBAMA GIVE HIM 25% LESS THAN THE MINIMUM NUMBER THAT GENERAL
  • 00:07:02.020 --> 00:07:06.280
  • MCCHRYSTAL ASKED FOR, 25% LESS THAN THE MINIMUM, THEN 2 DAYS
  • 00:07:06.290 --> 00:07:09.280
  • LATER, AT WEST POINT, THE PRESIDENT WENT OUT AND ANNOUNCED
  • 00:07:09.290 --> 00:07:13.270
  • THE DATE CERTAIN THAT WE WOULD ACTUALLY WITHDRAW FROM THE
  • 00:07:13.280 --> 00:07:16.080
  • COUNTRY. -SO THIS IS THE, THE PRESIDENT IS TAKING THE EXACT
  • 00:07:16.090 --> 00:07:18.160
  • OPPOSITE APPROACH OF PRESIDENT OBAMA AND, FOR THAT MATTER,
  • 00:07:18.170 --> 00:07:21.070
  • PRESIDENT BUSH. LISTEN TO THIS ONE, #27: PRESIDENT TRUMP: WE
  • 00:07:21.080 --> 00:07:26.000
  • WILL NOT TALK ABOUT NUMBERS OF TROOPS OR OUR PLANS FOR FURTHER
  • 00:07:26.010 --> 00:07:31.020
  • MILITARY ACTIVITIES. CONDITIONS ON THE GROUND, NOT ARBITRARY
  • 00:07:31.030 --> 00:07:35.210
  • TIME TABLES, WILL GUIDE OUR STRATEGY FROM NOW ON. AMERICA'S
  • 00:07:35.220 --> 00:07:41.200
  • ENEMIES MUST NEVER KNOW OUR PLANS OR BELIEVE THEY CAN WAIT
  • 00:07:41.210 --> 00:07:45.050
  • US OUT. I WILL NOT SAY WHEN WE ARE GOING TO ATTACK, BUT ATTACK
  • 00:07:45.060 --> 00:07:50.120
  • WE WILL. -SO THE MEDIA CRITICISM TODAY HAS ALL BEEN THE
  • 00:07:50.130 --> 00:07:54.070
  • PRESIDENT WON'T TELL US HIS PLAN. [CHUCKLES] -YEAH, I MEAN,
  • 00:07:54.080 --> 00:07:57.000
  • THAT IS THE FOCUS. -CNN OPENED WITH THAT. THEY COULDN'T BELIEVE
  • 00:07:57.010 --> 00:08:00.050
  • HE WON'T GIVE US DETAILS. -WELL, THEY WERE TRYING TO
  • 00:08:00.060 --> 00:08:02.160
  • BREAK NUMBERS. I REMEMBER SEEING IT ON MY PHONE; 4.000 WAS A
  • 00:08:02.170 --> 00:08:05.060
  • NUMBER I SAW. AND HE NEVER REFERENCED THAT. I MEAN, SO
  • 00:08:05.070 --> 00:08:08.210
  • THERE WAS NO, AGAIN, SPECIFIC, MORE THAN JUST OUTSIDE SOURCING
  • 00:08:08.220 --> 00:08:13.140
  • AND LEAKING THERE. WE HAVE NO IDEA IF THAT NUMBER IS CORRECT
  • 00:08:13.150 --> 00:08:16.110
  • OR NOT. WE DON'T HAVE A TIMELINE. WE DON'T GET A START
  • 00:08:16.120 --> 00:08:18.120
  • TIME OR AN END TIME. AND PRESIDENT OBAMA LOVED GIVING
  • 00:08:18.130 --> 00:08:22.060
  • THOSE. HE LOVED SAYING EXACTLY HOW MANY NUMBERS OF TROOPS.
  • 00:08:22.070 --> 00:08:25.180
  • THERE IS NO REQUIREMENT TO DO THAT PUBLICALLY, TO TELL THE
  • 00:08:25.190 --> 00:08:29.070
  • AMERICAN PEOPLE. I MEAN, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU ARE TALKING
  • 00:08:29.080 --> 00:08:32.060
  • ABOUT, IN THIS INSTANCE, I THINK WE ALL UNDERSTAND, A TARGETED
  • 00:08:32.070 --> 00:08:35.110
  • APPROACH. NOT A LARGE SCALE WAR. YES, THERE WILL BE MORE AMERICAN
  • 00:08:35.120 --> 00:08:39.040
  • CASUALITES. WE KNOW THAT. SO HE'S MADE THAT SERIOUS DECISION
  • 00:08:39.050 --> 00:08:42.120
  • IN SPEAKING WITH HIS GENERALS. BUT I THINK WHEN YOU HEAR FROM
  • 00:08:42.130 --> 00:08:45.190
  • PEOPLE LIKE GENERAL MATTIS AND THEIR WRITTEN STATEMENTS,
  • 00:08:45.200 --> 00:08:48.000
  • FOLLOWING THIS, HOW EXCITED THEY ARE TO FINALLY HAVE, IN A SENSE,
  • 00:08:48.010 --> 00:08:52.000
  • THE CHAINS TAKEN OFF, THE GLOVES COME OFF, THEY GET TO BE THE
  • 00:08:52.010 --> 00:08:55.250
  • COMMANDERS ON THE BATTLEFIELD, NOT BARACK OBAMA ANYMORE, AND
  • 00:08:55.260 --> 00:08:58.280
  • HIS ADVISERS, WHO WERE NOT VERY GOOD COMMANDERS. -NO. -THE
  • 00:08:58.290 --> 00:09:01.080
  • WHITE HOUSE MICRO-MANAGED THEM. THEY REALLY DID. -WELL, HE SAID
  • 00:09:01.090 --> 00:09:03.210
  • THAT. HE TALKED ABOUT THEY'RE NOT GOING TO BE MICRO-MANAGED BY
  • 00:09:03.220 --> 00:09:06.110
  • THE, FROM WASHINGTON D.C. HE WAS VERY CLEAR ABOUT THE FACT THAT
  • 00:09:06.120 --> 00:09:10.070
  • THAT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. IT'S ALSO INTERESTING YOU SAID
  • 00:09:10.080 --> 00:09:16.120
  • THIS, ON THE ISSUE OF ANNOUNCING BEFORE AND GIVING A DATE BEFORE,
  • 00:09:16.130 --> 00:09:21.270
  • THE PRESIDENT SAID THAT IS NOT A SMART STRATEGY. AS REGARDING THE
  • 00:09:21.280 --> 00:09:25.050
  • MICRO-MANAGEMENT, HERE'S WHAT HE SAID, #36: PRESIDENT OBAMA:
  • 00:09:25.060 --> 00:09:27.290
  • MICRO-MANAGEMENT FROM WASHINGTON D.C. DOES NOT WIN BATTLES. THEY
  • 00:09:28.000 --> 00:09:32.260
  • ARE WON IN THE FIELD DRAWING UPON THE JUDGEMENT AND EXPERTISE
  • 00:09:32.270 --> 00:09:37.030
  • OF WAR TIME COMMANDERS AND FRONTLINE SOLDIERS ACTING IN
  • 00:09:37.040 --> 00:09:43.020
  • REAL TIME WITH REAL AUTHORITY AND WITH A CLEAR MISSION TO
  • 00:09:43.030 --> 00:09:47.150
  • DEFEAT THE ENEMY. -ALRIGHT, SO YOU COULDN'T HAVE BEEN ANY
  • 00:09:47.160 --> 00:09:50.260
  • CLEARER THAN THAT. AND THAT, AGAIN, IS VERY DIFFERENT THAN
  • 00:09:50.270 --> 00:09:53.010
  • THE LAST 2 PRESIDENT'S APPROACH FRANKLY. LET'S GO AHEAD AND TAKE
  • 00:09:53.020 --> 00:09:55.210
  • A CALL. LOGAN SEKULOW: LET'S GO TO JAMES IN DENVER COLORADO ON
  • 00:09:55.220 --> 00:09:57.200
  • LINE ONE. JAMES, WELCOME TO JAY SEKULOW LIVE. -HI, JAMES.
  • 00:09:57.210 --> 00:10:00.000
  • -HELLO! -YES, SIR. -HEY, I'M REALLY EXCITED, TO BE HONEST
  • 00:10:00.010 --> 00:10:05.020
  • WITH YOU. I SEE A CLEAR, CLEAR LEADERSHIP THAT IS NOT FOLLOWING
  • 00:10:05.030 --> 00:10:10.160
  • THE DEFINITION OF INSANITY BY DOING THE SAME THING OVER AND
  • 00:10:10.170 --> 00:10:13.160
  • OVER EXPECTING DIFFERENT RESULTS. I SUPPORT THE
  • 00:10:13.170 --> 00:10:15.200
  • PRESIDENT. THIS WAS AMAZING. -WELL, HERE'S WHAT, I MEAN,
  • 00:10:15.210 --> 00:10:18.170
  • THIS WAS ANOTHER THING, -THAT'S WHY THE MEDIA IS NOT COVERING
  • 00:10:18.180 --> 00:10:20.180
  • IT. -YES. -BECAUSE THIS, WHEN IT COMES TO THE REAL ISSUES, NOT
  • 00:10:20.190 --> 00:10:24.210
  • FAKE ISSUES, NOT MONUMENTS AND STATUES THAT HAVE BEEN AROUND
  • 00:10:24.220 --> 00:10:28.110
  • THAT, BY THE WAY, WEREN'T AN ISSUE FOR 8 YEARS UNDER THE
  • 00:10:28.120 --> 00:10:30.270
  • OBAMA PRESIDENCY, THE SAME STATUES HAVE BEEN THERE, IT'S
  • 00:10:30.280 --> 00:10:32.280
  • NOT THOSE ISSUES, IT'S ISSUES LIKE WAR, AND THEY DON'T LIKE TO
  • 00:10:32.290 --> 00:10:38.070
  • COVER IT WHEN THERE'S BEEN A REAL STRATEGY CHANGE. I ALSO
  • 00:10:38.080 --> 00:10:40.230
  • THINK THE MEDIA DOESN'T LIKE WHEN HE'S UNLEASHING OUR
  • 00:10:40.240 --> 00:10:44.060
  • MILITARY. I THINK THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA DOES NOT LIKE WHEN THE
  • 00:10:44.070 --> 00:10:47.110
  • MILITARY OF AMERICA IS UNLEASHED TO DO THEIR JOB. -WELL, HERE'S
  • 00:10:47.120 --> 00:10:51.060
  • WHAT, I MEAN, IF YOU WANT TO DEFINE WHAT THE PRESIDENT SAID,
  • 00:10:51.070 --> 00:10:53.040
  • I'M GOING TO GET SKIP'S COMMENT ON THIS IN A MOMENT HERE, AND
  • 00:10:53.050 --> 00:10:55.000
  • LET'S GET SOME COMMENTS COMING IN ON FACEBOOK AND PERISCOPE
  • 00:10:55.010 --> 00:10:57.030
  • TOO, BUT PLAY #30. IT'S SHORT, BUT HERE IT IS: PRESIDENT TRUMP:
  • 00:10:57.040 --> 00:11:01.260
  • WE ARE NOT NATION BUILDING AGAIN. WE ARE KILLING
  • 00:11:01.270 --> 00:11:06.050
  • TERRORISTS. -WELL, THERE YOU GO. THAT'S A TRUMP DOCTRINE.
  • 00:11:06.060 --> 00:11:09.230
  • SKIP, YOUR REACTION TO THAT? SKIP ASH: I THINK THAT'S LONG
  • 00:11:09.240 --> 00:11:12.110
  • OVERDUE. YOU KNOW, PRESIDENT BUSH WENT IN AND SAID WE'RE
  • 00:11:12.120 --> 00:11:15.140
  • GOING TO CREATE DEMOCRACIES IN THE MIDDLE EAST. THAT WAS SO
  • 00:11:15.150 --> 00:11:18.000
  • NAÏVE AND WAS FOLLOWED ON BY OBAMA, WHO CONTINUED TO BE NAÏVE
  • 00:11:18.010 --> 00:11:20.210
  • IN TRYING TO CREATE THESE SOCIETIES THAT WOULD REFLECT
  • 00:11:20.220 --> 00:11:24.130
  • AMERICAN VALUES. THEY COME FROM DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS, DIFFERENT
  • 00:11:24.140 --> 00:11:27.050
  • TRADITIONS, DIFFERENT RELIGIONS. WHAT WE NEED TO DO IS TO WATCH
  • 00:11:27.060 --> 00:11:30.130
  • OUT FOR U.S. INTERESTS. WE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE STABLE GOVERNMENTS,
  • 00:11:30.140 --> 00:11:33.110
  • BUT THESE GOVERNMENTS HAVE TO REFLECT THE PEOPLE OF THEIR
  • 00:11:33.120 --> 00:11:35.270
  • COUNTRIES. AND THE PRESIDENT HAS GOT IT EXACTLY RIGHT. LET'S
  • 00:11:35.280 --> 00:11:39.230
  • FOCUS ON THE IMPORTANT THINGS AND LET'S LET THE LOCAL PEOPLE
  • 00:11:39.240 --> 00:11:43.060
  • DO WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE IN NATION BUILDING. -YEAH. SO
  • 00:11:43.070 --> 00:11:46.100
  • HERE'S WHAT I THINK, I THINK THAT THE PRESIDENT MADE A
  • 00:11:46.110 --> 00:11:50.030
  • SEISMIC SHIFT AND WE'RE GETTING INTO THAT IN GREAT DETAIL. THE
  • 00:11:50.040 --> 00:11:52.220
  • MEDIA IS COMPLETELY IGNORING THIS. NOW WESS, YOU'VE BEEN IN
  • 00:11:52.230 --> 00:11:57.010
  • THE MIDDLE EAST, YOU KNOW IT IS, AND SKIP GOES THERE, CURRENTLY
  • 00:11:57.020 --> 00:12:00.190
  • GOES THERE A LOT AND IS ON BOARDS OF UNIVERSITIES THAT DO
  • 00:12:00.200 --> 00:12:04.020
  • COUNTER-INTELLIGENCE, BUT THIS IS A REAL SHIFT IN STRATEGY
  • 00:12:04.030 --> 00:12:07.080
  • HERE. WE HAVEN'T EVEN GOTTEN INTO, AND WE'LL DO THIS IN THE
  • 00:12:07.090 --> 00:12:09.220
  • NEXT SEGMENT, MILITARY COMMANDERS REALLY BEING
  • 00:12:09.230 --> 00:12:11.180
  • UNLEASHED TO DO THEIR JOB HERE. WESS SMITH: YEAH, EXACTLY. ONE
  • 00:12:11.190 --> 00:12:14.020
  • OF THE THINGS THE PRESIDENT SAID LAST NIGHT IS THAT GOING
  • 00:12:14.030 --> 00:12:16.030
  • FORWARD: PRINCIPLED REALISM WILL BE THE GUIDE TO OUR STRATEGY.
  • 00:12:16.040 --> 00:12:21.100
  • PRINCIPLED REALISM. IN OTHER WORDS, AMERICAN PRINCIPLES AND
  • 00:12:21.110 --> 00:12:24.140
  • THEN REALISTIC ABOUT WHAT WE CAN AND CANNOT DO, WHAT WE SHOULD
  • 00:12:24.150 --> 00:12:28.160
  • AND SHOULD NOT DO. AND THE PURPOSE OF THE MILITARY IS
  • 00:12:28.170 --> 00:12:31.140
  • REALLY NOT TO DO NATION BUILDING. I MEAN, WE CAN KEEP
  • 00:12:31.150 --> 00:12:35.120
  • THE PEACE, BUT THE REAL PURPOSE OF THE MILITARY AND THE REASON
  • 00:12:35.130 --> 00:12:38.050
  • THEY TRAIN THE WAY THEY DO, AND HAVE THE EQUIPMENT THAT THEY DO,
  • 00:12:38.060 --> 00:12:41.250
  • IS THEY ARE TRAINED TO FIGHT AND WIN WARS. AND WHAT THE PRESIDENT
  • 00:12:41.260 --> 00:12:46.070
  • IS DOING, HE TRUSTS HIS GENERALS, AND FRANKLY, I DO AS
  • 00:12:46.080 --> 00:12:50.110
  • WELL, TO LET THEM GO FORWARD AND THE END STATE THE PRESIDENT HAS
  • 00:12:50.120 --> 00:12:54.070
  • ASKED FOR, IS TO DEFEAT TERRORISTS IN AFGHANISTAN AND IN
  • 00:12:54.080 --> 00:12:58.130
  • THE REGIONS, THE BORDER REGIONS OF PAKISTAN. THAT IS THE END
  • 00:12:58.140 --> 00:13:01.120
  • STATE. AND THEN THE PRESIDENT, LIKE A GOOD COMMANDER IN CHIEF,
  • 00:13:01.130 --> 00:13:04.080
  • SAYS TO HIS COMMANDERS, THIS IS WHAT I WANT, YOU FIGURE OUT HOW
  • 00:13:04.090 --> 00:13:07.190
  • TO DO IT. -CAN WE GRAB A CALL HERE? A QUICK ONE? -WE CAN GET
  • 00:13:07.200 --> 00:13:09.160
  • A QUICK CALL. LET'S GO TO NINA WHO'S CALLING IN CHANDLER, TX ON
  • 00:13:09.170 --> 00:13:11.230
  • LINE FOUR. -HI, NINA. -HEY, -HEY, GO AHEAD. -LISTEN, I AM
  • 00:13:11.240 --> 00:13:15.290
  • SO GRATEFUL THAT YOU ARE ALL STANDING UP FOR JUSTICE AND
  • 00:13:16.000 --> 00:13:18.290
  • TRUTH. AND I HAVE TO TELL YOU FOR A PRESIDENT THAT IS NOT
  • 00:13:19.000 --> 00:13:23.170
  • SOMEONE THAT IS A WELL-SEASONED POLITICIAN, HE IS SURROUNDING
  • 00:13:23.180 --> 00:13:27.030
  • HIMSELF BY THE SAME PEOPLE, AND I APPLAUD THAT HE IS NOT
  • 00:13:27.040 --> 00:13:31.070
  • TELEGRAPHING WHAT WE INTEND TO DO ABOUT THESE TERRORISTS. I
  • 00:13:31.080 --> 00:13:34.030
  • MEAN, BASICALLY, YEAH, WE'RE GOING TO KILL THEM, BUT YOU
  • 00:13:34.040 --> 00:13:36.280
  • KNOW, IT'S JUST REFRESHING THAT SOMEBODY IS FINALLY PUTTING THE
  • 00:13:36.290 --> 00:13:39.290
  • UNITED STATES FIRST. AND THAT'S MY COMMENT. -YEAH, WELL,
  • 00:13:40.000 --> 00:13:43.030
  • LISTEN, I THINK THIS WAS A GREAT STRATEGY SHIFT, JORDAN. IT'S
  • 00:13:43.040 --> 00:13:46.050
  • DRIVING THE MEDIA CRAZY, BUT I THINK THIS WAS THE RIGHT THING
  • 00:13:46.060 --> 00:13:49.100
  • TO DO; NOT TELEGRAPH EXACTLY WHAT WE'RE DOING HERE. -YEAH.
  • 00:13:49.110 --> 00:13:52.230
  • THE ONE THING HE TELEGRAPHED WAS THAT PAKISTAN, YOU BETTER WATCH
  • 00:13:52.240 --> 00:13:55.020
  • OUT. BECAUSE IF YOU DON'T STOP HARBORING 20 U.S. RECOGNIZED
  • 00:13:55.030 --> 00:13:59.200
  • TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS, I MEAN, WE CAN PLAY THE SOUND WHEN WE
  • 00:13:59.210 --> 00:14:03.200
  • COME BACK, IN FACT, THIS IS QUICK SOUND, THIS IS JUST
  • 00:14:03.210 --> 00:14:06.140
  • TALKING ABOUT PAKISTAN VERY QUICKLY. PRESIDENT TRUMP, BITE
  • 00:14:06.150 --> 00:14:09.030
  • #33: PRESIDENT TRUMP: PAKISTAN HAS ALSO SHELTERED THE SAME
  • 00:14:09.040 --> 00:14:13.190
  • ORGANIZATIONS THAT TRY EVERY SINGLE DAY TO KILL OUR PEOPLE.
  • 00:14:13.200 --> 00:14:19.060
  • WE HAVE BEEN PAYING PAKISTAN BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF
  • 00:14:19.070 --> 00:14:23.200
  • DOLLARS. AT THE SAME TIME, THEY ARE HOUSING THE VERY TERRORISTS
  • 00:14:23.210 --> 00:14:28.030
  • THAT WE ARE FIGHTING. BUT THAT WILL HAVE TO CHANGE AND THAT
  • 00:14:28.040 --> 00:14:32.230
  • WILL CHANGE IMMEDIATELY. -I MEAN, THOSE ARE, THAT IS A
  • 00:14:32.240 --> 00:14:35.160
  • REALLY STRONG, AND HE'S ABSOLUTELY CORRECT. AND WE'VE
  • 00:14:35.170 --> 00:14:38.240
  • BEEN ALL, IT'S LIKE THE UNITED STATES HAS BEEN AFRAID TO SAY
  • 00:14:38.250 --> 00:14:41.100
  • IT. I MEAN, IT'S LIKE, OH WE CAN'T SAY IT, THEY'RE AN ALLY.
  • 00:14:41.110 --> 00:14:44.110
  • THEY ARE AN ALLY THAT WAS HARBORING BIN LADEN. WE'RE GOING
  • 00:14:44.120 --> 00:14:46.280
  • TO BE BACK WITH A LOT MORE. AND AS WE GO TO BREAK YOU PRAY FOR
  • 00:14:46.290 --> 00:14:50.030
  • OUR MEN AND WOMEN SERVING OUR COUNTRY DEFENDING OUR FREEDOMS.
  • 00:14:50.040 --> 00:14:54.040
  • BACK WITH MORE IN A MOMENT.
  • 00:14:54.050 --> 00:14:55.020
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:14:55.030 --> 00:15:00.290
  • JAY SEKULOW: TALKING ABOUT THE CHANGE IN
  • 00:15:01.000 --> 00:15:02.090
  • STRATEGY IN AFGHANISTAN, I THINK IT'S EVEN BROADER THAN THAT. I
  • 00:15:02.100 --> 00:15:05.150
  • THINK IT'S A CHANGE IN STRATEGY MILITARILY. LOGAN, WHAT ARE WE
  • 00:15:05.160 --> 00:15:07.240
  • SEEING ON FACEBOOK AND PERISCOPE? OUR PHONE LINES ARE
  • 00:15:07.250 --> 00:15:10.110
  • JAMMED. LOGAN SEKULOW: YEAH, A LOT OF COMMENTS. JAMES JUST SAID
  • 00:15:10.120 --> 00:15:12.110
  • THANKS, JAY AND THE ACLJ, FOR PUTTING MUCH NEEDED SHIFT IN THE
  • 00:15:12.120 --> 00:15:15.080
  • U.S. POLICY TOWARDS TERRORISM, ANALYZING IT. WE APPRECIATE
  • 00:15:15.090 --> 00:15:17.280
  • THAT. A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE ASKING ABOUT THE MEDIA. CHARLOTTE SAID
  • 00:15:17.290 --> 00:15:20.040
  • I'LL NEVER UNDERSTAND WHY THE MEDIA WOULD EXPECT TO KNOW ABOUT
  • 00:15:20.050 --> 00:15:22.230
  • MILITARY MOVEMENT. IT CAUSES ONE TO LOSE ELEMENTS OF SURPRISE.
  • 00:15:22.240 --> 00:15:26.010
  • -YEAH, WELL, JORDAN'S BEEN ADDRESSING THAT. JORDAN SEKULOW:
  • 00:15:26.020 --> 00:15:27.250
  • IT'S BECAUSE THE PAST ADMINISTRATION LOVED GIVING
  • 00:15:27.260 --> 00:15:30.110
  • TROOP NUMBERS, THEY LOVED ANNOUNCING TIMELINES,
  • 00:15:30.120 --> 00:15:32.290
  • WITHDRAWALS. THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION TO SOME EXTENT
  • 00:15:33.000 --> 00:15:36.070
  • TOO, THOUGH THOSE WERE MUCH MORE LARGE SCALE MILITARY OPERATIONS.
  • 00:15:36.080 --> 00:15:38.260
  • I MEAN, WITH PRESIDENT OBAMA, IF THEY WERE SENDING 500 PEOPLE IN,
  • 00:15:38.270 --> 00:15:41.190
  • THEY'D TELL YOU. WE'RE SENDING IN 500 PEOPLE. OR WE SENDING 50
  • 00:15:41.200 --> 00:15:44.050
  • SPECIAL OPERATORS INTO SYRIA. -WHY WOULD YOU TELL THEM THAT?
  • 00:15:44.060 --> 00:15:46.240
  • -AND WHERE THEY'RE GOING? HE WOULD ANNOUNCE WHERE THEY WERE
  • 00:15:46.250 --> 00:15:49.190
  • GOING. -BECAUSE THEY KNOW THAT'S WHAT THE MEDIA WANTS AND
  • 00:15:49.200 --> 00:15:51.200
  • THEN THE MEDIA WOULD REPORT THEM IN A POSITIVE LIGHT, THEIR
  • 00:15:51.210 --> 00:15:53.260
  • DECISION IN A POSITIVE LIGHT. IF YOU KEEP THE MEDIA IN THE DARK,
  • 00:15:53.270 --> 00:15:56.140
  • THEY GIVE THIS BIZARRE COVERAGE. AND IF YOU ACTUALLY LOOK AT MOST
  • 00:15:56.150 --> 00:15:59.110
  • OF THE HEADLINES, IT'S OH TRUMP SWITCHES HIS OPINION ON
  • 00:15:59.120 --> 00:16:03.040
  • AFGHANISTAN OR BOWS DOWN TO HIS GENERALS. THE GENERALS BOW DOWN
  • 00:16:03.050 --> 00:16:07.020
  • TO HIM. HE'S THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. HE TELLS THEM
  • 00:16:07.030 --> 00:16:09.160
  • WHAT TO DO, WHEN TO DO IT. AND IF THEIR STRATEGY ENDS UP NOT
  • 00:16:09.170 --> 00:16:13.020
  • WORKING, THAT THEY'VE CONVINCED HIM TO START WITH, THOSE
  • 00:16:13.030 --> 00:16:15.210
  • GENERALS WILL BE FIRED. -YEAH, BUT THE PRESIDENT'S ACCOUNTABLE
  • 00:16:15.220 --> 00:16:18.240
  • FOR IT. -BUT HE IS THE ONE THAT THEY BOW DOWN TO. HE DOES NOT
  • 00:16:18.250 --> 00:16:20.250
  • BOW DOWN TO GENERALS. HE IS THE ELECTED COMMANDER IN CHIEF.
  • 00:16:20.260 --> 00:16:25.070
  • -YEAH, LET ME PLAY THIS ONE AND I WANT TO GET SKIP'S COMMENT.
  • 00:16:25.080 --> 00:16:28.100
  • THIS IS #40: PRESIDENT TRUMP: OUR TROOPS WILL FIGHT TO WIN. WE
  • 00:16:28.110 --> 00:16:33.150
  • WILL FIGHT TO WIN. FROM NOW ON, VICTORY WILL HAVE A CLEAR
  • 00:16:33.160 --> 00:16:38.030
  • DEFINITION. ATTACKING OUR ENEMIES, OBLITERATING ISIS,
  • 00:16:38.040 --> 00:16:42.040
  • CRUSHING AL QAEDA, PREVENTING THE TALIBAN FROM TAKING OVER
  • 00:16:42.050 --> 00:16:46.100
  • AFGHANISTAN, AND STOPPING MASS TERROR ATTACKS AGAINST AMERICA
  • 00:16:46.110 --> 00:16:50.150
  • BEFORE THEY EMERGE. -OKAY, SO, SKIP, THAT IS A BIG, BOLD
  • 00:16:50.160 --> 00:16:56.150
  • STATEMENT AND IT SEEMS VERY DIFFERENT FROM WHAT WE'VE BEEN
  • 00:16:56.160 --> 00:16:59.080
  • HEARING. SKIP ASH: THAT'S EXACTLY RIGHT. ONE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:16:59.090 --> 00:17:02.030
  • THAT THE MILITARY ALWAYS NEEDS IS A CLEAR STATEMENT OF WHAT
  • 00:17:02.040 --> 00:17:05.030
  • THEY'RE EXPECTED TO DO. ONCE YOU TELL THEM WHAT THE MISSION IS,
  • 00:17:05.040 --> 00:17:08.020
  • THEY KNOW HOW TO ORGANIZE IT, THEY KNOW HOW TO EXECUTE IT,
  • 00:17:08.030 --> 00:17:10.290
  • THEY KNOW HOW TO FINISH IT, AND ACHIEVE THE VICTORY, PROVIDING
  • 00:17:11.000 --> 00:17:14.270
  • THAT WE PROVIDE THEM THE EQUIPMENT AND THE MATERIAL THAT
  • 00:17:14.280 --> 00:17:18.180
  • THEY ASK FOR AND TELL THE PRESIDENT THAT WE NEED TO
  • 00:17:18.190 --> 00:17:21.080
  • ACCOMPLISH THAT. ONCE THAT IS DONE, LET THEM GO. THEY WILL
  • 00:17:21.090 --> 00:17:24.120
  • ACCOMPLISH THE MISSION. -ALRIGHT, LET'S GO AHEAD AND
  • 00:17:24.130 --> 00:17:26.290
  • TAKE A PHONE CALL 800-684-3110. WE ALWAYS LIKE TO KEEP IT
  • 00:17:27.000 --> 00:17:30.010
  • INTERACTIVE. WHO'S NEXT? LOGAN SEKULOW: LET'S GO TO BOB IN
  • 00:17:30.020 --> 00:17:32.150
  • CALIFORNIA. LINE TWO. BOB, WELCOME TO THE SHOW. -HEY, BOB.
  • 00:17:32.160 --> 00:17:34.270
  • -HEY, IT'S ABOUT TIME, THIS WILL BRING BACK PATRIOTISM
  • 00:17:34.280 --> 00:17:40.180
  • BECAUSE WHEN THEY PUT US INTO WARS WE CAN'T WIN BECAUSE THEY
  • 00:17:40.190 --> 00:17:44.270
  • TIE OUR HANDS, IT'S ABOUT TIME, YOU KNOW, I FEEL THE PATRIOTISM
  • 00:17:44.280 --> 00:17:51.000
  • JUST HEARING THIS. -WELL, HERE'S WHAT YOU'VE GOT, I'M
  • 00:17:51.010 --> 00:17:53.280
  • GOING TO PLAY THIS ONE FOR YOU, THIS IS #37, AND IT SETS FORTH,
  • 00:17:53.290 --> 00:17:59.000
  • I THINK, YOU TALK ABOUT A CLEAR STATEMENT. THIS IS A CLEAR
  • 00:17:59.010 --> 00:18:02.070
  • STATEMENT. LISTEN TO #37: PRESIDENT TRUMP: WE WILL ALSO
  • 00:18:02.080 --> 00:18:04.280
  • EXPAND AUTHORITY FOR AMERICAN ARMED FORCES TO TARGET THE
  • 00:18:04.290 --> 00:18:08.190
  • TERRORISTS AND CRIMINAL NETWORKS THAT SOW VIOLENCE AND CHAOS
  • 00:18:08.200 --> 00:18:13.010
  • THROUGHOUT AFGHANISTAN. THESE KILLERS NEED TO KNOW THEY HAVE
  • 00:18:13.020 --> 00:18:17.040
  • NOWHERE TO HIDE. THAT NO PLACE IS BEYOND THE REACH OF AMERICAN
  • 00:18:17.050 --> 00:18:21.250
  • MIGHT AND AMERICAN ARMS. RETRIBUTION WILL BE FAST AND
  • 00:18:21.260 --> 00:18:26.110
  • POWERFUL. -SO THE PRESIDENT CALLS IT, HE'S GOING TO TAKE
  • 00:18:26.120 --> 00:18:29.170
  • RETRIBUTION. THERE'S NOT PLACE FOR THEM TO HIDE. AND THAT'S
  • 00:18:29.180 --> 00:18:32.170
  • BECAUSE THEY WERE HIDING RIGHT THERE WITH OUR ALLY, PAKISTAN.
  • 00:18:32.180 --> 00:18:35.180
  • -RIGHT THERE. AND ALSO IN PLAIN SITE IN AFGHANISTAN, JAY. THE
  • 00:18:35.190 --> 00:18:39.190
  • RULES OF ENGAGEMENT UNDER THE PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION AND UP
  • 00:18:39.200 --> 00:18:42.220
  • UNTIL RECENTLY, REALLY, REALLY COST AMERICAN LIVES. I CAN
  • 00:18:42.230 --> 00:18:46.210
  • REMEMBER SO MANY TIMES WHEN I WAS SERVING AT DOVER AIRFORCE
  • 00:18:46.220 --> 00:18:50.010
  • BASE FOR THOSE 3 YEARS, THAT AS SOLDIERS WOULD BRING THEIR
  • 00:18:50.020 --> 00:18:53.270
  • BUDDIES BACK ON AIRPLANES AND TRANSFER CASES, WHO'D BEEN
  • 00:18:53.280 --> 00:18:57.060
  • KILLED IN BATTLE, AND THEY WOULD TELL ME HORROR STORIES OF HOW
  • 00:18:57.070 --> 00:19:00.020
  • THEY COULD NOT FIGHT BACK. THAT THEY WERE FIGHTING WITH ONE HAND
  • 00:19:00.030 --> 00:19:03.290
  • TIED BEHIND THEM, THAT WASHINGTON WAS ACTUALLY
  • 00:19:04.000 --> 00:19:06.180
  • SELECTING TARGETS. THAT IF THEY SAW SOMEONE SHOOTING AT THEM AND
  • 00:19:06.190 --> 00:19:10.040
  • THE PERSON WENT IN A HOUSE AND CAME BACK OUT WITHOUT THEIR
  • 00:19:10.050 --> 00:19:13.240
  • AK47, THEY WERE NOT ALLOWED TO FIRE ON THAT PERSON. ON AND ON
  • 00:19:13.250 --> 00:19:17.000
  • AND ON THESE CRAZY RULES OF ENGAGEMENT COST AMERICAN LIVES.
  • 00:19:17.010 --> 00:19:21.050
  • AND WHAT THE PRESIDENT IS DOING, HE IS LETTING THE COMMANDERS,
  • 00:19:21.060 --> 00:19:24.090
  • AND THE COMMANDERS ON THE GROUND, THEY DETERMINE WHAT'S
  • 00:19:24.100 --> 00:19:27.070
  • REALISTIC AND THEY'RE GOING TO TRY AND AVOID CIVILIAN
  • 00:19:27.080 --> 00:19:31.040
  • CASUALTIES, TO BE SURE, BUT THEY'RE MAKING THE RULES OF
  • 00:19:31.050 --> 00:19:33.220
  • ENGAGEMENT SUCH THAT WE ACTUALLY CAN KILL THE ENEMY AND PROTECT
  • 00:19:33.230 --> 00:19:37.170
  • AMERICAN LIVES. -LET'S GO TO JUDITH. SHE'S BEEN HOLDING FOR A
  • 00:19:37.180 --> 00:19:40.080
  • WHILE. JUDITH'S CALLING IN OREGON ON LINE SIX. YOU'RE ON
  • 00:19:40.090 --> 00:19:42.090
  • THE AIR. -HI, JUDITH. GO AHEAD. -HI, HOW ARE YOU TODAY? -GOOD.
  • 00:19:42.100 --> 00:19:46.040
  • -I REMEMBER THE TIME WHEN IN THE KOREAN WAR, WHEN OUR BOYS
  • 00:19:46.050 --> 00:19:53.240
  • WERE NOT ALLOWED TO FOLLOW THEIR ENEMY AND KILL THEM, GET RID OF
  • 00:19:53.250 --> 00:20:01.110
  • THEM. -RIGHT. -AND I JUST, I SO APPLAUD PRESIDENT TRUMP. I
  • 00:20:01.120 --> 00:20:07.050
  • KNOW THAT HE HAD A LOT OF PEOPLE FIGHTING AGAINST HIM WHEN HE
  • 00:20:07.060 --> 00:20:11.030
  • FIRST CAME INTO OFFICE, BUT HE'S MAKING POSITIVE MOVES ONE AFTER
  • 00:20:11.040 --> 00:20:18.020
  • ANOTHER AND I APPLAUD THE MAN. -LET ME PLAY THIS ONE FOR YOU,
  • 00:20:18.030 --> 00:20:21.270
  • AND I WANT EVERYBODY TO COMMENT, #34: PRESIDENT TRUMP: NO
  • 00:20:21.280 --> 00:20:24.290
  • PARTNERSHIP CAN SURVIVE A COUNTRY'S HARBORING OF MILITANTS
  • 00:20:25.000 --> 00:20:27.290
  • AND TERRORISTS WHO TARGET U.S. SERVICE MEMBERS AND OFFICIALS.
  • 00:20:28.000 --> 00:20:31.270
  • IT IS TIME FOR PAKISTAN TO DEMONSTRATE ITS COMMITMENT TO
  • 00:20:31.280 --> 00:20:36.220
  • CIVILIZATION, ORDER, AND TO PEACE. -SO THEY ARE A, NOW
  • 00:20:36.230 --> 00:20:40.290
  • PAKISTAN IS A NUCLEAR POWER, AND THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO BE AN ALLY
  • 00:20:41.000 --> 00:20:43.280
  • OF THE UNITED STATES. -AND THEY'RE QUASI-ALLY. I MEAN, THEY
  • 00:20:43.290 --> 00:20:46.190
  • WILL SOMETIMES CRACK DOWN WHEN NECESSARY. BOTH INDIA AND
  • 00:20:46.200 --> 00:20:50.190
  • PAKISTAN HAVE NUCLEAR WEAPONS POINTED AT EACH OTHER. SO IT'S
  • 00:20:50.200 --> 00:20:53.150
  • KIND OF THIS COLD WAR STANDOFF. THEY DO FIGHT, THOUGH, IN THE
  • 00:20:53.160 --> 00:20:57.140
  • DISPUTED, AND I DON'T KNOW IF WE PULLED THE SOUND, BUT I'M SURE
  • 00:20:57.150 --> 00:21:01.030
  • THIS ALSO MADE THE PAKISTANIS UPSET. THE PRESIDENT REFERENCED
  • 00:21:01.040 --> 00:21:04.060
  • SPECIFICALLY A RENEWED MILITARY RELATIONSHIP WITH INDIA. -YEAH.
  • 00:21:04.070 --> 00:21:09.210
  • -SO HE'S KIND OF TOLD THE PAKISTANIS 2 THINGS. 1) YOU
  • 00:21:09.220 --> 00:21:12.060
  • BETTER KNOCK IT OFF AND START, OR WE'RE GOING TO TREAT YOU LIKE
  • 00:21:12.070 --> 00:21:16.220
  • AFGHANISTAN. -YEP. -I MEAN, HE KIND OF HAS INDICATED WE COULD
  • 00:21:16.230 --> 00:21:19.260
  • QUICKLY START TREATING YOU LIKE AFGHANISTAN. THIS IS NOT A
  • 00:21:19.270 --> 00:21:23.010
  • GOVERNMENT OR MILITARY THAT HAS, YES, THEY HAVE THE NUCLEAR
  • 00:21:23.020 --> 00:21:25.200
  • WEAPONS, BUT WE HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO, AGAIN, IT'S NOT A
  • 00:21:25.210 --> 00:21:28.160
  • STABLE GOVERNMENT, IF YOU WILL. AND IT IS A TERROR HOTBED. AND
  • 00:21:28.170 --> 00:21:31.270
  • THEN 2) BY SAYING, HEY, WE'RE ALSO GOING TO UP OUR
  • 00:21:31.280 --> 00:21:35.140
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH INDIA, WHICH WE ALREADY HAVE, I'D SAY A MUCH
  • 00:21:35.150 --> 00:21:38.020
  • BETTER RELATIONSHIP WITH THAN PAKISTAN, THAT'S A CLEAR SIGN.
  • 00:21:38.030 --> 00:21:41.130
  • NOT JUST ON ECONOMICS, BUT ON MILITARY AS WELL. -YEAH.
  • 00:21:41.140 --> 00:21:44.290
  • -PAKISTANIS CAN'T STAND THAT. -SO HOW BIG OF A DEAL DO YOU
  • 00:21:45.000 --> 00:21:47.100
  • THINK THAT WAS? I'M GOING TO WESS AND SKIP NOW. WESS SMITH: I
  • 00:21:47.110 --> 00:21:49.060
  • THINK IT WAS A SHREWD POLITICAL MOVE TO SORT OF, NOT IN A
  • 00:21:49.070 --> 00:21:52.280
  • HOSTILE WAY, BUT TO PIT THE 2 NATIONS AGAINST ONE ANOTHER IN
  • 00:21:52.290 --> 00:21:55.260
  • ORDER TO GET PAKISTAN TO CHANGE THEIR BEHAVIOR. AND AS WE SAID A
  • 00:21:55.270 --> 00:21:59.010
  • MOMENT AGO WHEN WE WEREN'T ON THE AIR, JAY, I THINK WHILE IT
  • 00:21:59.020 --> 00:22:01.120
  • WAS NOT STATED BY THE PRESIDENT, WHAT IS IMPLIED HERE IS THAT IF
  • 00:22:01.130 --> 00:22:05.200
  • PAKISTAN CONTINUES TO HARBOR TERRORIST GROUPS ACROSS THE
  • 00:22:05.210 --> 00:22:09.090
  • BORDER, THEY COME ACROSS AND THEY KILL AMERICANS AND THEN
  • 00:22:09.100 --> 00:22:11.070
  • THEY GO ACROSS THE BORDER, THAT WE WILL FOLLOW THEM AND WE WILL
  • 00:22:11.080 --> 00:22:14.030
  • KILL THEM IN THE BORDER REGION OF PAKISTAN. NOT STATED, BUT I
  • 00:22:14.040 --> 00:22:17.150
  • THINK THAT'S WHAT'S IMPLIED. -SKIP, HOW BIG OF A SHIFT DO
  • 00:22:17.160 --> 00:22:20.000
  • YOU VIEW THIS AS? SKIP ASH: I THINK IT'S VERY SIGNIFICANT. THE
  • 00:22:20.010 --> 00:22:23.110
  • THING IS THE BORDER REGION OF PAKISTAN IS LIKE THE WILD WEST.
  • 00:22:23.120 --> 00:22:27.040
  • I MEAN, THEY CAN'T CONTROL IT EITHER, AND THOSE FORCES HAVE
  • 00:22:27.050 --> 00:22:30.210
  • BEEN KILLING PAKISTANIS, AND HAVE BEEN KILLING PAKISTANI
  • 00:22:30.220 --> 00:22:33.150
  • SOLDIERS AND POLICE. SO IT SEEMS TO ME TO BE IN THE INTEREST OF
  • 00:22:33.160 --> 00:22:36.230
  • PAKISTAN TO ALLY WITH US AND SAY, OKAY, WE WILL COOPERATE AND
  • 00:22:36.240 --> 00:22:39.020
  • DRIVE THEM OUT BECAUSE IT'S GOOD FOR BOTH SIDES. -THAT'S GOING
  • 00:22:39.030 --> 00:22:43.270
  • TO DO IT FOR THE BROADCAST TODAY. AS WE END THIS BROADCAST
  • 00:22:43.280 --> 00:22:46.160
  • WE ALWAYS ASK YOU TO PRAY FOR OUR FRIENDS AT THE TRINITY
  • 00:22:46.170 --> 00:22:49.010
  • BROADCASTING NETWORK, OUR LAWYERS HERE AND OUR TEAM AT THE
  • 00:22:49.020 --> 00:22:51.170
  • ACLJ, BUT RIGHT NOW PRAY FOR OUR MEN AND WOMEN SERVING IN OUR
  • 00:22:51.180 --> 00:22:55.100
  • MILITARY, DEFENDING OUR FREEDOM. THEY'RE OUR BEST LINE OF
  • 00:22:55.110 --> 00:22:58.200
  • DEFENSE. WE'LL TALK TO YOU NEXT WEEK.
  • 00:22:58.210 --> 00:23:02.230
