saying maybe you'd be a good idea to outsource congress to china or india. good morning, charles. caller: good morning, steve. two observations. for the people who argue this is a law that has already passed i would like to point out almost a century ago we passed a law for prohibition. it almost destroyed the country before we had enough common sense to turn around and repeal. the same thing is going to happen with obamacare. the second observation is, as far as defaulting on our debt, i hope we do, because if nothing else, it will make foreign countries such as china aware that we can't pay our bills and maybe it might even force congress to live within a budget we can afford, for god's sake. everybody knows we are spending more money than we have. what are they going to break up and use some common sense? there is none in congress. host: ok, thank you, charles. you mentioned asia. the president was supposed to be at that conference. basically loans from asia account for half of the gross domestic product in terms of the economy. guest: right. the caller made good comments. the

can't and we were talking about that who's going to deal with india. the nations and especially china, which purchase such a large amount that continue to purchase iranian oil, if we could get them to do more to scale back their energy purchases, i think it would take the sanctions regime, which are having an effect, and make them even more effective and hopefully help us. we have a meeting in early july and i think senator reid pulled it together with the number two leader of the chinese government and i asked him this question. you've reduced your oil purchases from iran for a variety of reasons, including to help the sanctions. could you reduce them dramatically further and then say, but if you give up your nuclear program, we're going buy a lot more from you, so have a stick, but then have a carrot, and could india do the same thing, dramatically reduce oil purchases, but with a carrot down the road, or japan could do the same thing, and the response to the chinese official was very adroit and very quick. he said he would be very willing to consider cutting our purchases from iran

mentioned here is china. and they are very much involved in the situation, including developing two of the largest oil field in iran under sanctions. i don't think the issue isn't application of two tough sanctions. it is an issue of not applying the sanctions we already have. the chinese imports 60% of iran's oil exports. they built a real system. they built roads. they were very much involved in iran. the russians are very much involved. that is another country we have maybe mentioned once or twice in here. it is not just the u.s.. we have lost leverage. some people in the city think we can do some ink and the world jumps. this is a different world. china is a powerful country. russia is not as powerful in its economy. it is degraded, and its leaders or something else. but the chinese are a powerful country that wants more influence in the middle east and they are moving into every single country. it is one of few countries that helped saudi arabia and iran at the same time. they support the palestinians and the israelis at the same time. they are playing a double game and they are playi

were trying to keep on board, the russians, the french, china. even the sort of left wing chatterati would have much preferred sanctions and containment to invasion. >> absolutely. if you analyze it, they got watered down. my point to you is simple. if you hadn't taken out saddam, there still would have been consequences. what they are, we don't know. i could say, it would have been a threat. competing with iran. someone else might say, well, he would have been contained. we don't know. but my view was, in the circumstances after 9/11, you had to send such a strong signal out. on this issue. and incidentally, don't ignore what happened. libya gave up the wmd program. iran went back into talks. at the time, after 2003. north korea rejoined the six-party talks. there was a lot that happened. i personally felt, and i still feel, the single biggest threat we face is the prospect of the terrorist groups acquiring a nuclear chemical biological capability. >> although many would say that is the worst case scenario and there is speculation because there's no evidence to support it. >> here's

like humanity -- serbs, russians indians, amish the people's republic of china. it's broadly troubled but it's hard to know how to help. as you work upstream toward home you're more closely related. the big river is like your nation, a little out of hand. the lake is your cousin. the creek is your sister. the pond is your child. and for better or worse, in sickness and in health you are married to your sink. then there's the late, great carl sagan. your wonderful scientist, environmentalist. anyone who used to watch him on television will remember he used to talk about billions and billions of stars. he would make nature and science come alive. he was a wonderful man. he said this. he said anything else you are interested in is not going to happen if you cannot breathe the air and drink the water. don't sit this one out. do something. you are by accident of fate alive in an absolutely critical moment in the history of our planet. that would be my message to you guys, the younger people in the room. it's not like me saying okay we're handing over this problem to you. this is g

the next two years of our relationship with china and they turned to asia. it will be a very significant part of our foreign-policy in the next three years. hopefully, at the outset, we are brief and to the president's second term. three years from now, we will look back on what the president did to engage china and work with china on issues and it will be a big part of his foreign- policy legacy. >> i think your question is a good one. it is significant that the president of the council of foreign relations, an old friend of mine, has written a book called "foreign-policy begins at home." that is the last thing that you would expect him to write. he wrote that book because he argues and i think this is an instinctive wrong -- instinctive among them -- instinct among americans are now that we have to get things right at home and make adjustments. i think there is a war weariness in the country. you see it in the polls on syria will stop there is a lot of relief support for more intervention in syria. there's not a lot of popular support. we are in one of those times where we

that's what he's been doing and the question is is he capable of negotiating with china and russia and iran and all of the things you have to do. >> dr. carson thank you for joining us. how do you respond to that and why would you be a better president than donald trump? >> i don't want to compare myself with anyone but i've had lots of experience doing a whole host of things. negotiating with all kinds of people in order to get things accomplished and also bear in mind, there is no one person who does all the negotiation and knows everything. you know, in the multitude of counselors is safety. i think the important thing is to understand what the stakes are. when you go into a negotiation, the recent iran negotiation for instance, you have to know how to negotiate. you have to know how to verify, how to make sure that there's appropriate accountability. you have to be able to take down their infrastructure and know what your goals are. >> have you ever done anything like that. >> have i ever done anything like what? negotiate? >> negotiate? >> absolutely. >> what's the best example. >

china. he stepped into one of the most partisan and shark-infested environments in recent history. he set a bar that was extremely tough to match. frankly, if the economy continues to recover and if we are not attacked again here in a consequential way, plus if health care end up expanding services, cutting costs, and providing quality care, and if a republican is not elected in 2016, i think his legacy could actually be quite a significant one. host: among the questions in the book, how important are individuals in the broader current of history and how much do they matter in comparison to the broader forces that shape their times? guest: the great debate between what is more important, circumstances or the individual. karl marx argued that men make history, but rarely as they please. one of the points i'm trying to get across is that character is important and individuals are critically important. but you must anchor the individuals in circumstances in which they find themselves. great presidents can not simply create transformative change without the right set of circumstances.

register. china has about a quarter of a million registered. probably at least that many more registered for fear of political reprisal of one kind of another. russia used to have -- but mr. putin seems to think they are a threat. in some ways, they are. in ways that are positive. i remember thinking about the freedom component of ngo movement. there was a hilarious cartoon that appeared in many newspapers in america. the middle of my second term, when i was in a long-running battle, in this cartoon i'm speaking to a political leader and say, you ought to allow more political liberty. you keep putting these people in jail. they would be out there speaking on the street corner. he said, yeah. and -- would be in our jail making tennis shoes. it was a cartoon, so it was really funny. [laughter] made me rethink our position on liberty. [laughter] they have pushed the envelope of liberty and political responsiveness in a way that i think is very positive. having had the benefit of about 40 years of experience in politics and in ngos, i have reached the firm conclusion that 21st-cen

enough to give up their weapons, so could we. by the way, the official policy in china is already there. if you say we never use them first, you're saying pretty much the same thing. it is not precise, but it is pretty much the same thing. if he could get into that kind of a situation, you could envision a world in which if everyone was producing more or less simultaneously, like we're trying to do with russia now, an adequate deterrent could be maintained until the last minute when the last weapons were reduced. the return could be reduced as you go along. the other side has nuclear weapons, you need less to deter the possibility that they might use them. that is the concept for how you get out of this. is is a long, difficult process. as long as we are in the box we are in now and we are not on a path to zero, and that requires all sorts of stuff to get on that path, incentives will not be there, at least in my view. any time one state has the clear weapons, the one thing that really works is deterrence if you want to protect yourself against that state's nuclear weapons. some other s

president approving on afghanistan, i believe, that is seeking to get china's attention. to deal with the north korean situation in a way that is ever more pressing. so, again, this is a superb group of individuals. they're not all military, obviously, secretary tillerson. >> general petraeus, earlier, thes kind of dodged a question. saying the the team is important. you dodged a question about whether president trump was fit for office. saying it was immaterial because of the the team. immaterial? >> look, i felt it was inappropriate for a former general to be judging whether someone elected by the american people is fit or not. he's our president. and what we need to do as a country is try to support those who are supporting him. so that we can, indeed, continue this economic growth that we have had. so we can shore up national defenses. come to grip with issues like immigration reform, infrastructure investment, tax reform, and the rest. >> and i do want to talk about nig e niger and what happened there, is this an intelligence failure? >> we don't know. that's why there's a team from

be home for christmas. we have a responsibility to deal with the issue. china, one of our great competitors in the world is taking the green leap forward, as they say. they're committing themselves an energy efficient economy. they are building mpanies, even in the united states, that will make those products. will the uted states stand by the sidelines or be part of the leap forward? >> so that's a yes? >> we're going to move forward. i hope we can get it done in the coming year. >> neither the president or secretary of state can go to copenhagen and make large commitments without senate confirmation or ratification. as a result, the senate will have to act on this. there is not the support right now for that. my guess is, if it came to the senate today, there would not be a majority willing to support it. as one wag put it. by the way, china is among the group of countries that would be eligible. you borrow the money from china and then give the money to china, it doesn't make sense. >> thanks, gentlemen. hope you get home for christmas. >> i hope so, too. >>> coming up, our r

and american workers. for those who care about syria and what happens with china. what the president's been able to do with leaders around the world, the cooperation is -- they have announced big new deals here. which affect american workers and interests. that, plus the tax cut, i think it's why you see the stock market and consumer confidence at all. time highs. people like what they see. >> thank you for joining us. >>> joining me from alabama, matt murphy and andrea lind lindenburg. they're the hosts of the most popular radio show in alabama. your show broadcasts across alabama. how are your listeners reacting do people believe the accusations? are they skeptical? >> well, initially, martha, it was reaction of shock. roy moore is a known quantity in alabama. he's been running for chief justice. run for governor twice. we have known him for 20, 25 year of his political life. it was one of shock that this type of explosive allegation would not have come out before now. and frankly, there is skepticism considering the the source. we understand in a conservative state like alabama, per

this week, a political attempt to do something about china, democratic senator in ohio, sherrod brown said that this treasury department hasn't done enough against that. they can't run on the program -- >> i'm not changing the topic. >> gentlemen we'll have to leave it there. that will be the last words. i guess. and governor jindal and governor o'malley. >> thank you, terry zmrrjts don't go anywhere, our powerhouse roundtable is coming up in just 60 seconds. my specialty is pastries, not predictions. knowing what to make and when could help cut down on thousands of unsold baked goods per month. using analytics, we discovered when it's drizzling outside... people eat more cake. and when the temperature rises, panini sales go up. finding these hidden connections helped our european bakeries increase profitability by up to 20%. let's build a smarter planet. by what's getting done. measure commitment the twenty billion dollars bp committed has helped fund economic and environmental recovery. long-term, bp's made a five hundred million dollar commitment to support scientists studyin
