aggressive cyber states like china and russia to rein in their hackers that operate with government support and direction, making both better world citizens. but because they are members of the u.n. security council with veto power, crafting a power won't be easy until they and others who think they can conclude that war in that domain is likely to hurt them more than it will help them. thanks for joining us for this week in defense news. i'm vago muradian. you can watch this program online or e-mail me.

wages in india and china and brazil skyrocket. the jobs will go to where the talent is. we need to make sure that the talent is here in the west. -- in the u.s. we look forward to legislative reform any meaningful way that will benefit the country, encourage invtment, retain and attract high skilled talent and create jobs. a lot of thinking clearly has already been done in defining clear policies that congress can take. i think mayor blubber went through -- mayor bloomberg went through changes that we shall look to. which certainly recommend that congress ensures that the supply of employment-based green cards acknowledge the economy. after they graduate, rather than a tawnies abroad. again, we need to welcome these people in and we need to show them a path to permanent residency here in the united states. we need to welcome these people with open arms, not kind of let the men and then tell them, maybe, if you're a really long wait, maybe then we will allow you to reside here and planned your ribs. and while we await legislative reform, microsoft will continue to do what it has done for

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

billion a year that we're losing with china, that's going to be turned around. the $75 billion a year that we're short on with japan, the $50 billion a year that we lose to mexico and that's right, there will be a wall built. it will go up. it will be built and people will come into the country legally. so i mean, i'm much different than -- you look at marco rubio. very, very weak on illegal immigration. you look at ben, he's very weak on immigration and he wants to get rid of medicare. i mean, ben wants to get rid of medicare. you can't get rid of medicare. it would be a horrible thing. it actually works. you get rid of the fraud, waste and abuse, it works. so when a man is weak on immigration and wants to get rid of medicare, i don't know how he stays there. go ahead, tom. >> [inaudible] mr. trump: i really think that marco is overrated. had bush been a better messenger, he would have a better message. that was me delivering the message it would have been a , much different story. marco doesn't go to the united states senate. he's representing the people of florida. that poll just c

. remember, there will be a lot of people. a country like china which has a very large population and does not have the agricultural capacity to feed the population at the level they are expecting. there's an enormous opportunity for us throughout the world. probably the biggest game changer right now is happening with natural gas and oil production. if there's any critical issue in this election people should be thinking about, it is how we take advantage of the fact that the united states has now really researched as a major energy producer. i've spent time in places like louisiana and texas, where you can see how jobs are being created. the important thing about u.s. energy production is that it produces about 200 -- to order and 50,000 jobs in the last decade. they are high-paying jobs. -- 250,000 jobs. they are very high paying jobs. there are many good blue collar jobs. you can get a job at an oil refinery that pays $90,000 a year. we do not have to have gone to stanford to get it. this is extraordinarily important. the other thing is that, as we begin to become a more self- suf

direction is al qaeda going? because it's more than al qaeda. it's china, it's all of the various competitors that are out there. we have to have a much deeper understanding of sort of who is who out there and really, really take a hard look at our relationships and say, one, do we want to maintain that relationship? or two, do we want to change that relationship -- politically, economically, military to military, whatever. and i think we can't just sit back and again i'm being generalizing a little bit. but we can't just sit back and accept that these guys have always been our friends, they've always been there for us and they're always going to be there for us. that's not true today. >> so you being an expert on those relationships within afghanistan, having run intel for general mcchrystal in afghanistan and now just having completed a term as the head of intelligence for the defense department, what happens now in afghanistan? we're down to about 10,000 troops. the mission of those 10,000 troops seems to be morphing slightly, seems to be a little more active. but 10,000 troops

possible? how is it possible we have more prisoners than russia or china? the insanity of the system is unsustainable and it has to change. the congress, our legislatures have to address it at some point. it will cripple our society. it will cripple our economy. host: bernard kerik this is a tweet that we have gotten, and -- it is funny how opinions change when the shoe is on the other foot. guest: that is right. that is exactly right. basically, it is an education. it is an education. here is the issue. one of the reasons i'm talking i you, one of the reasons testified before the congress, one of the reasons i talk about this constantly is because the general public does not understand the damage that the system does. if you have not experienced it firsthand, if you have not been there, if you have not dealt with it through some personal discourse -- a family member, friend, or otherwise, you have no idea, and the reason i know that is because i was in the system. ran two the largest -- i two the largest law enforcement agencies in the country, and i did not know half of what

would rival the world bank. china is also moving forward to create an infrastructure investment bank. a world in which countries such as china and russia are increasingly acting outside the established multilateral system is one that could easily go beyond control. that is some of the reasons republicans have no actual consequences of not supporting the package. the more immediate question is whether the voice will -- resonate at a time where we alone allowed a fundamental government reform language into the institution. i look forward to hearing more about what is at stake. i yield back the balance of my time. >> the chair recognizes the german from michigan, chairman of the trade subcommittee for two minutes. question thank you, mr. chairman, and secretary lou. the important, international financial, issues to be addressed, the european union minister on financial services has pointed out that moving from a regulatory environment to a growth agenda, as was noted, as he rightly points out, we have got to have courage and self-confidence to make changes where we see those necessary.

financial life. >> obviously we would at this point not characterize china as one of our closest allies here or in other places. as these other policies have been put into place, china has very noticeably not cooperated. they are becoming iran's most active trading partner. they are still trading oil. what is their reaction -- what do you think would be their reaction to this sort of proc s process, new legislation, or existing pills? are they doing? >> let me speak to the broad relation with china with regard to iran and defer to the undersecretary on the specific c.b.i. reaction. we take what china is doing quite seriously. i just returned from beijing, and a great deal of the meetings i held were exactly on this poi point. that, they have finally agreed that the special envoy can go to china, sit down and help them to better enforce the sanctions regime that is in place. they have in fact slowed down their actions. they have tphnot, to the best o our knowledge, backfilled from others who have pulled out. we had indeed sanctioned a chinese individual and five chinese firms under sanct

politicians who want to tax the people of america and the world because we all know what china is -- we all know that china is not going to go along with this. host: there was a number of thing that the -- guest: there is a number of things that the caller has misperceptions about. first about, it was study by several people and evolved in the early 1980's and "newsweek" retracted their story a couple of years later, so that was debunked. thatve never had a problem hasn't received more studies for more scientists than climate change. going to the clean power plan, epa has found and predicted that there will be net job growth. job growth of 100,000 jobs. annually, we would do's debt by 3600 dollars and prevent 90,000 asthma attacks a year. the next benefits are going to be 45 billion dollars annually. we were hit 25 years ago talking about controls on acid rain, opponents would have said the same thing that dave is saying that it will cost too much, it will cost jobs. in fact, none of those things happened. the cost came in about one quarter of what people predicted. we saved tens

at-risk regions like the middle east or portions of russia or china's periphery can get us the stability and win us the allies that were produced by a large nonmilitary investment in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. now, we don't need to spent 3% of gdp on foreign aid on this but you can't justify spending 15 times more money on military and military aid than we do on us aid and peacekeeping combined. secondly we believe in working multilaterally to increase your effectiveness, working through international bodies like the u.n. and nato make us stronger, not weaker. just as importantly, multi lateral support can be a check on american hub russ. if no other ally is willing to join us in a military endeavor why shouldn't it cause us to question the wisdom of that intervention in the first place? yes, there are instances where america is under immediate threat and we can't wait for partners to sign up. but as a rule with limited exceptions, our actions are more effective within coalition. third, we believe in a far more thoughtful and restrained approach to military intervention. signi

federal agency that wants to shut it down. american companies are free to go create jobs in china. but they are not free to create jobs in the south carolina. the administration has 219 rules in the works that will cost the american economy $100 million each. under the current washington agenda, our economy is going to take a hit from the government of at least $100 million at least 219 times. it is reasonable to ask, is it wise to be doing all of this right now. the current regulatory burden coming out of washington far exceeds the government also andstitutional mandate i destroy job creation in our country at a time when we can least afford it. the current tax code discourages investment and reward special interest. at a time when it is clear that the tax code needs to be fundamentally reform, the first instinct to come out of washington is to come up with a new host of tax credits that make the tax code more complex. it is theal aspect, spending binge going on here in washington. it has created a massive debt that threatens our ability to create jobs and to prosper. some still denie

crossover between commerce and the state, because that is what we really need. that is what china and others do so well. they combine all of their assets, all of their possibilities to go after business and try to win customers over. i think we can do that, and i really think the commerce-state, nation can be very fruitful. we would like to help with that. it is a great opportunity. >> ambassador, so trade promotion authority is a big issue. what do you see as the prospects in congress to get trade promotion authority, to get fast-track? what would it mean if you do not? can you negotiate these agreements if that is not a part of the equation? >> the president made clear that he would like to get trade promotion authority, that it is a critical tool for being able to move these agreements, make these agreements really never met them. just this week, there was a hearing in the senate finance committee on t-tip where senator baucus and senator hatch talked about the importance of moving forward on trade promotion authority, and we are working with the finance committee and the ways

europeans or russia and china and others, so it is backed unanimously either leading countries on earth. i am very glad to see that done. north korea is going in the other direction. basically unnecessarily. i went to north korea in 1994. to deal with a crisis in north korea. some of you are familiar with this. the leader of north korea then, revered and was worshiped almost like washington, george washington and jesus put together. i am not exaggerating. the united states was on the verge of declaring north korea to be an outlaw nation, and kim il-sung to be a criminal. my chinese friends came to me and said, if the united states did that, the north koreans to save face would invade and attack south korea. the military general in charge was an american from arkansas, and he told me a million south koreans would be killed in the first 48 hours. i decided to go to north korea, and i negotiated a very comprehensive agreement with kim il-sung that ended their .roduction of plutonium unfortunately, since then, other things have happened. this week, the north koreans announced he will expand

trouble abroad. with ukraine and russia, i think the same is true in the south china sea. i think the same is true in other parts of the middle east, including gaza and israel and with regard to iran and their march toward a nuclear weapon. we need to show more leadership. i hope last night's speech begins the process of getting america back on track. the president, based on remarks last night, continues to hope it will go away. hope is not a strategy. we need to engage more aggressively. and the president took some of those steps last night. >> earlier this week, it was written that they were expecting a sizable republican wing. charlie cook offers a different view. he says there doesn't appear to be an overwhelming republican tide. another said the democrats could well lose the senate even without such a wave. which senate race keeps you up most at night? is it our friend in kansas where you recently dispatched two top aides to work on it? what keeps you up at night? >> first, none of the races keep me up at night. i am kept up at night by other issues, including the lack of leaders

of what europe does on infrastructure and significantly less than china. today, the world economic forum ranks our overall infrastructure at 12th in the world. we used to lead the world. we are now in 12th place. i hear many of my republicans friends and all of us talking about what kind of debt we leave to our kids. you know what, when your infrastructure is crumbling and when the american society for civil engineers tells us we need over 3 trillion$3 trillion investment, if we don't deal with it now we're leaving that debt to our kids as well. i think we can agree we need infrastructure significant efforts to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure. when we do that, we do something also very important, getting to senator sessions point. that is today, real unemployment in this country is not 5 1/2%. if you count those people given up looking for work or working part-time, it is 11%. it is higher among young people and very high in the construction industry. it seems to me now is the time to put city substantial funding into rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure and make our system

fake i.d.'s from china. i wrote you a letter in august, you may remember, about companies in china that produced exact replicas of driver's licenses from various states for sale to people who might be terrorists, and illegal immigrants, or primarily underage teenagers trying to drink illegally. these licenses are very well done, with the bar code and everything else. very hard for the person at the bar or wherever else to actually detect they are false. sometimes you can detect it by a false address but they usually give and out of state address. -- an out of state one. if a new york bar in syracuse get a driver's license that says altoona, pennsylvania, he has no idea there is no 123 elm street there. last week western union gave me good news by agreeing to work with the dhs to refuse payment to businesses whom you indicate -- when you indicate to them that are providing fake i.d.'s from china. this is the only way to cut it off, if they don't allow them to wire money, that is what they do. western union took a big step forward. despite this accomplishment, the work is not done. h

, 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

country. we say to china, come to our naval academy, but then we kick them out to work for the chinese military. let's staple a green card to their diploma, at one of the key things. an act with a stem visa -- these are not going to solve all the problems. there are things around the dream act and comprehensive immigration reform that people will debate for some time. but focusing heavily on this issue that is about entrepreneurship and job creation is important. there are opportunities in the next month or two to work on the house and senate, where there is enormous overlap. we agree that something is important for the nation to focus on, people essentially agree on 80%, 90% of the solution. how do we make sure the politics, particularly in an election year, don't get in the way of the right policies for our nation? i encourage, i am optimistic, but it will take everybody working on this and focusing it together. aaronson and young, which has its entrepreneur of the year for every year, ast previous winners to come to washington later this month, at a march on washington to ma

about china and the visit of xi jinping. guest: i was eight -- going on a tour with a colleague, and we went to a couple of companies in new bedford. they were two companies that are in the area where we say we need to go ahead, alternative energy solar energy and how to use it, and both of them volunteered that one of the problems was on subsidized competition from china. the oppression in china is very sad. people have predicted that if the economy opened up and the internet got there, it would be more democracy. sadly, what the chinese are showing is that they can contain that and i am sorry that the chinese continue to be some disrespectful -- so disrespectful. human values, not western values. i guess we have to say this. i think china does need us more than we need them. too often, we're acting like these countries are doing as a favor by letting us to buy all of their goods. china needs us more than we need them and i think we need to be much more tougher with the chinese, saying you have got to stop the subsidy stealing other people's intellectual property. they are no longer

terrorism. today we're facing both of these, geopolitical competition from china and the threat of isis and terror networks and dealing with technology creating new threats, cyber and pandemics, loose nukes. the global turbulence we are facing now along with domestic issues at home, these are contributing to the pervasive sense that the american people are sitting there saying can someone explain to me what is happening in the world? and if you think about what they have seen over the past 10 or 15 years, you can understand a certain level of puzzlement. two costly, protracted wars with unsatisfying outcomes, a painful financial crisis, the rise of ambitious new powers like china and the return of old powers like putin's russia, the persistence, the malignance of terrorist threats flowing out of an islamic world struggling with collapsing state structures and stifled hopes and a healthy dose of domestic political dysfunction in washington so we have to be fair and say these have dented, for some people, a sense of confidence in our capacity to shape the world but they shouldn't dent our con
