leader to get china once again back at the negotiating table because that's the key to imposing tough sanctions are. what they call one of the big options, and last of many other options, but this week, the house and senate will sit down to try to henten that bill that they put together that will impose even more tougher sanctions on iran. i think at the end of the day the administration has to lay it out on the table. they said they'll do it in january, it's now april. i don't believe much activity is going on and this memo is a reminder that iran is proceeding to form that bon. >> i agree george's sanctions probably don't work. i don't think there's any possibility getting the sort of sanctions that might have some affect. i don't think the chinese will go along with the tough sanctions necessary. the interesting thing about what looks to me like a pressing engaged memo, he's right. there's not a whole lot of people that have an option that would work. the israelis think about taking out the facility. people will tell you, yeah, but there may not be one facility and if they do. the

new nuclear weapons. china will. russia will. you said when you were running for president in 2007 -- >> presidents should be very careful at all times in discussing the use or nonuse of nuclear weapons. presidents, since the cold war, have used nuclear deterrents to keep the peace, and i don't believe that any president should make any blanket statements with respect to the use or nonuse of nuclear weapons. >> did you change your mind? >> no, jake, because i think if you actually read the nuclear posture review, you make three conclusions. first, we intend to maintain a robust nuclear deterrent, let no one be mistaken. united states will defend ourselves and defend our partners and allies, we intend to sustain that nuclear deterrent by modernizing the existing stockpile. in fact we have $5 billion in this year's budget going into that very purpose. we believe, and this is a collective judgment from ts government, that is certainly shared by the secretary of defense, chairman of the joint chiefs, secretary of energy and others along with the state department who worked on this nucl

the world sees what the president is doing. one occasion i remember was the first trip to china, which was in 2009. and the president -- it was a bit of a disaster. the president did a town hall meeting in shanghai, which half of china couldn't even see because it was blocked off and the chinese wouldn't let half the people come in. didn't go and see any dissidents for example. when reagan went to moscow he went to see dissidents, etcetera, etcetera. and then he had this press conference, which was not really a press conference at all but him and hu standing there kind of looking around and it went into this massive discussion of mutual cooperation and that kind of stuff. the chinese often talk about that in public. the president was staring around looking at, catching people's eye in the front row. he was very bored. the press coverage was absolutely brutal on that. and i kind of didn't do that story because i figured we were all flying around in the same plane. everyone is going to ride over the disaster. i have to come up with something different at least as a foreign journal

world, you have isis, and a much more energetic russia and china, but that is the fundamental question , if your data is more secure, are we better off as a nation? that is the position the administration took. i'm not a big fan of backdoors. one of the reasons we decided against it the last time, was that the believe that any backdoor that we built would be found by someone else and used by them -- you do kind of compromise security with it. but, no doubt, there is a problem for fbi and there is a problem for law enforcement when you use strong encryption. it is just a heart issue. i would not see this as the end of the debate. host: when you think about cybersecurity and some of the threats that the government or private industries face, are we thinking about the right things? james: no. that is the good news. because, people are beginning to realize that there is still -- thate still sort of shaped i can defend my network. i can do whatever it takes to make my network hard to hack. you can make your network harder to have, but you cannot make it on hakuba. you cannot protect network

. what is your view on google withdrawing from china? more specifically, to provide limited but still superior service to 1.4 billion people compared to no service at all. gabriel: that was definitely the most challenging chapter of my time at google without a doubt. you know, it was a source of real soul-searching at the company. first, let me tell you where we stand on this at twitter and i can try to shed some light on how that went for us at google. twitter is currently blocked in china. as much as we would love for people in china to be able to freely access twitter, they cannot. what we said is that we are unwilling to make the kinds of sacrifices that we believe we would need to make in order to be unblocked there. perhaps there is a world in which twitter can be unblocked but it would require sacrifices that were just not prepared to commit to because of our values. in the case of google, i would say it was similar. the difference was for us at the time to continue to operating there, it was requiring levels of sacrifice that we were unwilling to continue to sign up for. you c

doing things. jimmy carter did the same thing. have to respect that. he is 90. just went to china to celebrate the 35th anniversary of opening the door to china. so, anyway, when you deal with president bush, you realize immediately that he is a person of good will. whatever it is he is doing, he is doing because he thinks it's right and he wants to help somebody. i don't think that can possibly be underestimated as an attribute. if you don't have that, then everything else you're trying to do is a lot harder. when i was president we had to -- i had a republican congress, six of the eight years, the people that actually knew me, that i had a relationship with, that we had done something together on, republicans who supported the irish peace process ex-for example -- it was -- we had a beg leg up. i think it's very important, when people see that. the other thing he had that believe every leader needs, i think he's got, too, by the way, we can all do the right thing when we're presented with a problem we know everything about and we understand the main players. but the best leaders ha

really hurts low income countries. middle income countries like china, they have got a lot of injustice because of what is not covered. yet in some ways because they are more open-minded they are trying different things. there will be good examples to come out of those countries, that even the rich countries should look at. the idea, what are the job categories, how do you measure outcomes? there are a lot of vibrancy there. high income countries are facing the same rate of increase, although we managed to be at a starting point of about 1.5 times worse than everyone else. i got pulled into health not because it is a big foundation priority, but at the state budget level where you have to or at least pretend the balance on a yearly basis there aren't some projects having to do with pensions that if they were in the private sector would be considered out and out fraud. because they have to pretend to balance, it education that gets hurt and for our foundation, that is the big doe mostic focus is the education system. ironically, in the last 15 years, a lot of additional money w

supported funding for abortion in china, which was not true. mitt romney was able to stand on stage, and he was able to say i have no idea why that ad is running. i wondered not just the presidential, but on some of these non-ballot races, you have the real potential to move local elections or smart -- smaller elections like that, and because it is coming from the super pac, there is less accountability. it is people for a better tomorrow, not my opponent who is saying it. and i wonder at the end of this race when we look back if the ads that run in the final eight weeks, if we do not see some pretty crummy as coming out of these. >> tv stations actually can refuse ads they consider libelous. if they are coming from an outside group. they cannot refuse ads coming from a candidate. >> it almost never do. >> the almost never do. -- they almost never do. >> they are not corporation's. >> that's right peeping that is the other thing. >> again, the libel barrier -- you can go pretty far distorting someone's record or the facts without being libelous. >> implicit in this conversation is a notes w

world moved from rural regions, especially in china, it has significant impact on food production, water utilization, and climate. these are great challenges of the future. the question is are our , political systems able to deal with these political challenges? and, you know, i work a lot in the foundation world, with corporations and ngo's. and they are all very important, but none can provide the skill -- scale of government -- none. if you want to feed a hungry world -- nobody has been more out in the front of this than the gates foundation. i work a lot with them. but they are small. even bill and melinda gates are small in connection with the scope and size of government to deal with these massive problems. so i think it is great that the foundation world, the ngo world, and the corporate world are all involved. and by the way, they are the forefront of a lot of the issues and what we need to be doing to change policy. what gage and rockefeller and ford and other foundations are doing in africa and the developing world are remarkable. but we cannot forget that governments ha

nations and americans were part of only two of them. china is writing the rules while we are being left behind. that is why trade promotion authority is being so important. it is the key to restarting the trade engine. here is how it works, congress sets 150 objectives that our negotiators have to advance. they are the rules both sides have to follow, everything from food safety to labor standards and through trading on the internet. if these objectives aren't met the deal is off. if they are met, then the agreements published in full for 60 days so the american people can weigh in, and only then will congress vote to approve it or reject it. this gives our negotiating partners the confidence that the concessions that they make will not be endlessly altered once the agreement gets to congress. it will either be voted up or voted down. that ensures negotiators will bring back the very best from our trading partners without holding anything back. we negotiated trade agreements since the 1930's. very much like this since the 1970's. in some quarters it has become controversial. some opposi

, synthetic drugs are largely developed outside the united states, in china, and smuggled into the country through the mail or across the border with mexico. reports indicate the profits are often traceable back to the middle east. we need to take a long look if law enforcement has the tools needed to protect the public from the synthetics. this committee acted to cleared the traffickers -- since then it is clear they are outpacing us. testifying before the senate caucus on narcotics cantrol, this committee acted by passing my bill, the david mitchell rogza act. the bill placed a series of synthetic can have annoyance and other analogs on schedule one. it also extend the time for which a substance can be temporarily scheduled by the da to protect the public. the bill became law as part of the synthetic drug abuse prevention act. this is an important step to protect young people. calls the poison control centers began to level off or decline for a time. in march 2011, the da has used temporary scheduling authority to place 35 synthetic drugs on schedule one. clearly, the threat pose
