oil, and china was using less oil, and countries whose power and influence in the world since the 1970's had had distorted global geopolitics because they had oil. opec, russia, they would suddenly by comparison have less power. all of that was very exciting. the proof of that was before -- and we can go into that, later before i actually got you guys to agree to let me in, i told my publisher that you had already agreed. [laughter] i did that and that was one of my shenanigans. but they bought into that whole thing that i just laid out and it was very exciting for them. so, it's fine. jeffrey: let's put some numbers to this. in the last nine months, there has been an additional excess of three to 5 million barrels a day of oil put on the market through the shale gas or shale oil revolution. could you talk a little bit about that and what the implications are if the super battery can move us around in vehicles, but also could be put on the grid? what is that equivalent to in terms of demand reduction that would be comparable to increase in supply that we have been seeing in the last ye

in that region. and in china we watch the chinese building artificial islands in the south china seas, and we have a president who says he doesn't want us to send our ships within 12 miles of those islands, northlight american planes overhead because he doesn't want to get into a dispute with the chinese. the dispute is being caused by the chinese, not by those who want to navigate the free waters of the world. and you look at all of these circumstances and you realize what an awful bill of goods this president sold the american people seven years ago. he tried to make us believe that america was the cause of violence in the world, that if we pull back from iraq and afghanistan and gave nice speeches, but somehow somehow the world would be a safer more peaceful place. well, the exact opposite has happened and now we have flyers all over the world. and the reason those fires have occurred, everybody compares the lack of american leadership and the lack of american strength. in this country needs to lead the world again so that it is safe for liberty and prosperity for all of the p

union, today, it is not just places like russia and china, but a mixed bag increasingly even with this recent deal proposed with iran. i am very concerned about their capacity. look at intercontinental ballistic missiles and their capacity. i am worried about what that could mean for the future, not just for israel and others in the region, but potentially what it could mean for the united states. i want to make sure that all the children in this country are safe. >> do you support the plan? gov. walker: i believe we need to have a nuclear triad which includes all three legs. i think part of it goes beyond what you asked about. i think we need a replacement for the ohio-based nuclear submarines that are part of what kept us safe for so many years. >> thank you for the question. where are you when it comes to the debate of gun violence versus the second amendment. gov. walker: i believe that law-abiding citizens should have the right to protect themselves and their families and their property. in my state i was the first , governor to sign into law a -- concealed carry and the castle do

will be isolated. what happens if a country like china walks away by establishing banks with no correspondent relationships in the u.s. and buying iranian oil? what would a rejection in congress do the reliability of the united states in the eyes of the world? joined many of i my colleagues in joining rounds and rounds of unilateral -- talks on unilateral sanctions. some thought that the gpo it would unravel the sanctions regimes, it has not. unusualy graven historic ity to assess the consequences of this agreement, and weigh the risks and benefits to a lower president to test iran's capability to comply with it. it is clear that we share the same goals to ensure that iran does not achieve a nuclear weapon. to do that diplomatically, if possible, and recognize the other alternatives remain on the table and are not precluded by this agreement. ambassador sherman: good morning, chairman shelby, ranking members of the committee, thank you very much for this opportunity to discuss the joint comprehensive plan of action that the united states and our partners recently concluded with
