Now it's Bob Mitchell on WW LA in my famine dot com cold day and to be really cold not Franklin keeps saying nasty access. Point in it's already getting to that part right now public interest in a couple of bodies among from Chicago. Flew in last night because it was thirteen to go yankees. Flew here. The warm up pulled it and denied it's going to be probably just those goals yeah now we get that wet cool two holes and as candy matchup there. David do you think. A coach. And take a player. And make him even better than he is making player a different level absolutely. I really do I've had an experience. All the way back to high school. Configure coaches that had a major impact on anything that Friday. You know tried to try to achieve that. It can capitalize and and that's life the MetLife I am really excited about some of these changes with the slate because. A we have not had many outstanding. Linebackers of we have not had. An overabundance of it depends of the linemen who can who can rush to quarterback play great. And you can take some of those already Goodall is already a really good player. Well again I mentioned or look at the demands of what coach O did an LSU Alia the turn people around their attitudes and you know how they played. And you write about linebackers with all the talent. Out this year. And the money that they pay in the NFL. You can't tell me we can't put together you know I mean machine and and how about how many times at least of this. We get a player from the other team he'd play right there oh. And then he comes here. And he's a bust. Well just may be coaching has been behind us and you'd get the right coach and there are a pounded him piled on coach go over and over again. Because of as an L shoot fan of us on the way the team discipline. Discipline with the offense. New coach takes over and everything's a lot of it can happen it could be a good year force I hope premieres and CBS news shall learn that the US intelligence has. Intercepts of Russian officials at. Expressing pleasure but their plan to battle in the American presidential election was. Successful we're gonna speak right now to CBO political analyst professor of communications. At American University. Leonard Stein darn letter does not mean the Russians haven't party and curriculum bought the celebrating the American election Roosevelt's. Well not literally leave it Barkley. Look they clearly did not like Hillary Clinton they have issues with President Obama and they seem much more comfortable with Donald Trump whether that these Chinese saying weapon actually impacted the election weather change votes. We don't know that. But Luke Donald Trump does not like this stop getting it. It she doesn't cheat insist election achievements as victory and that's why he's been pushing back so hard. Against intelligence community. Well at this point. Aren't the report saying that it did not change any vote tallies of anything at all. Will it didn't say they came vote is Burke who knows if cervical Wiki leaks in the concert true you know it's a trip to the ticket information in black voters who eventually felt like well Hillary Clinton the so called I can feel good about putting adult while we just don't know that. More victory in those restates that he pulled off Michigan Wisconsin Pennsylvania. With those in. That who knows how many vote got swayed by this but you'll never know this and that whole point. We just don't know eat without those Russian Mexican event that the same result we just don't know that the bottom line is that the Russians had sort of you know sort of and intense. Interfering with our democracy. Interfering with our system and gain a certain amount of joy with the fact that they shouldn't from marbles on the hallway and American democracy was stumbling. So other than the election do we know. If other areas were hacked. Well good question it appears that they try to hack you know obviously other parts of the federal apartments. Corporation's other institutions some more successful than others on it seems is that the communication between the FB in the democratic committee. It is it was a battle that and and probably could've been more vigorous in terms of you know going to count the Democratic National Committee shall. K folks we got a big problem or community to address that immediately. Instead of speaking with a low levels there which is what sort of hasn't. But the is that you know the Russians do not have our best interest in line. They're going to be doing whatever they can to disrupt our system pull out of recruit is not a fan of democracy. Is not a fan of the free press is not a fan. Up at the kissing him nonprofit. Institutions and NGOs. And you know he has a larger global strategy which is to. Cast doubt about now how effective democracy can be and so that's working must be smiling. The problem is that because Donald Trump feels like a little bit sweat because it has become clear when you criticize Powell trump. He pushes and pushes back caller on the unfortunate thing yours because. He'll threaten the situation. He's not standing up and looking at this. As a clear and direct threat. Toward democratic institutions which really so it's good that Republicans and Democrats at least for once on Capitol Hill are uniting crime the facts. And soared to sort of say this is not really healthy I'm for a system. Now Donald Trump of course continues to say that he does not want to make any decision to receive the full report which we will get. Sometime today wind will the hard facts that we can look at the site. Black and white we know old the Russian side of when will the public signals. Well who knows what the public pools C and how much because you don't wanna compromise or intelligence gathering your ability to find out this information so what's. Intelligence community in a bit of a and because the more they disclose. The more that they can hurt their ability to keep track of the Russian. You know look Donald Trump last week and said that he had new information. All of that other people don't know what he was gonna disclose early this week well he hasn't done that so the subjects. The issue is you know is she going to trust these folks in the intelligence community who can go to and present the present and with that in. And be able to do something about it without feeling personally threatened because it's says something about his election. A real leader have to be able to say yeah they did this accepted. Who knows if that had any influence on the election and president I've got to feel the stretch toward democracy I'm not going to sort of cozy up to Vladimir Putin. If he's doing things that are not the American best interest. When this first started my thought was why did we even released the fact that we knew Russia pact because. I've sort of thing that you can use that against them the numbers they'll let them know you caught them not to me would have been the perfect way to. To put some misinformation that we want them to pick up till why would we even as a country announced that it. Well it became pretty clear because there are a lot of folks outside the government should know about. And hacking in the out of stuff happens when. WikiLeaks has pretty much dumping misinformation. A lot of people though that there are direct ties between the Russian hackers Wiki leak what. They weren't a 100% sure it was whether they're direct ties between the Russian government itself or just sort of renegade Russians out there who hackers. And so I think that's where the intelligence community recanted. The field some of the holes which is Tuesday yet we have detected. Certain ties there are so it was out it was not the WikiLeaks thing made it pretty clear that the Russians were on that's. But it wasn't very clear whether it was actually higher officials from the Russian government. But. President Obama and the Obama administration did speak to that joint leadership in congress about as early. On in what happened was senator McConnell Republican majority leaders senate during the fall whether you go public with certainly in retaliation and and considered as a partisan. Because McConnell. You know it was a real street brawl in terms of politics she knew how powerful this could be his the White House and senate. That the Russians are interfering in the president did not want to be seen. As doing anything partisan with that intelligence during the election campaign. And so that's why all that awaited. Until after the election. When people a little bit more comfortable saying hey we can speak out against his push back against this. And bouncing like we're trying to influence the election. Leonard thank you so much for being part of the show this morning. And that is. Last night George devious political analyst and publisher of communications at American universities or big 870 pretty drive work you pull caution are you afraid of Russia.

All right so you think this whole thing is just a rouge. Rocket. And I restraint. Three when are there. You know it can be dark for a couple of more like terrific at home and Ebert are ordered them out. Yeah. Well no I don't agree with that we Dennis Allen as just putting things together now can a coach motivate a player to perform high level. Where a higher level sold out so that would be good debt and am in new cultures that I can motivate the players to play stronger. There are regular opponent check I have been ordered and year and they. This period at Butler. Now tomorrow and aren't just here. Junior they're even terrible article at all. Still Hollywood book before you go with all that's going alone with all the intelligence. That we have behind this country all the intelligence organizations say that they have proof. That Russia medal to a wealth of Russia tried to influence the election. You'd you'd think but there are all ganging up on drug. Yeah because Lou. Hillary Clinton and Obama is still want to commend people. All right all right all well. Thank you for your opinion okay. Or are all right 504260187.

The financial burden of interest is not killing. But I don't know the scholar reminds me of the old story where the mom was watching the parade. And everybody's in one step one did to Jesus looked.

I'll skip that our vote we're gonna go to Bob Bob Bob thank you for calling. WW LR opinion poll Bob is are you afraid of Russia where you rank it on that. Now I'm not afraid of much at all effect and red picture. Our pick of lecture me beer of people live there or did better. There are partners and space for crying out you. There are. The scientific acute medical treatment in nickel beyond anything else. All they want is back. In we have to treat them or their their inner does not war. Of any recognition in the world and they are great power and other bigot the united states of course. The only Obama administration is definitely a candidate. Some the united states of anger in Russia I belong there and the result of nothing else. I'd Bob the postal supposed to approve comes up when they released approved to the public. Which then might be initially but at at this point our intelligence community all of a marshland. That they have proof apple approved that Russia tried to hack into months and hacked in and tried to influence the election now. If that's true weight with a lot. No penalties at all. Do you think we don't pack in the foreign countries business. Well yeah lipped out community not to open they would not try and the end that you're not it. At the end date Barack that there could be at stake. Libyan aid making it an issue old sport look at you pick on that Russia all the time they should be informing. Because it back into the PNC online and hack in our election it is fact that it. Democratic National Committee that quarter. All right Bob I appreciate your Colin I don't want anybody hacking into any government agency that in this country at all. Yeah I would probably do the same thing but I guess we haven't gotten caught so far but you'd be I don't love it could just sit back and do nothing a lot of people call and we'll go to Cameron. Cameron are brigades seventy party drag or opinion poll questions very simple. Are you afraid of Russia am I am a little mr. 84% say no only 16%. Say yes do you consider Russia one of our number one enemies. Now apps oh Russia. Actually Russian and went. About their partner. Yeah but it. Or care that sitting in the Mediterranean. Literally falling. At that two aircraft. Because. That they can no more financially support the military on the ground alone you're. Our core war there or paper there are pockets while we all know financial. There. Are let's say that hypothetically what all the facts come out it's so clear it's so crystal clear it blackened wide there's. Total proved that Russia did tactic computers that did didn't try to take in the release things to influence the election. Does it. Well. And you you beat the previous caller who was spot on with their bank. You use said that you can't Albany arm America or are you and you can't forget that Pia embarrassing. On tapping into that with what Angela Merkel prime minister. You're right but I wrote a rook all the brilliantly run run. And and and that can we all your roster going to do that actually went the perp took piano thing in the CIA is to stand there and look pretty. We think they do and deliberate. Let me ask you this though if if Russia word hack your computer. Would you want your government to get involved in some kind of wanted. Well apart law which that. Yeah but yeah of course I would want the government do to protect. But when you've ever did you project that the Democrat and in the control media. That better better jump out of the compound in your best that the champion and an Angel was back at bat and urged that the bee champion and Hillary act. And it is. What they're not talking about all the information that was a lot. Real time. Or about the BM and bank information and that that was revealed about Hillary and how how urban model once more I attack. And it never know whether Russia do the country servants yet they did it. Repealing that or otherwise we beat Butler. But but is not what she did and what the Russians alleged to have done are aren't they both criminal lacks. This entire election has been about the lesser of two evils. And here we are. I'm always say in the fact that I don't like the fact. That Russia has the technology to Tupac is that is that that's that's that that's not my point. And I'm I'm not I don't care about the information that was released I hope that I at this important time that weakened pick this as a as a lesson display that. This country has the ability to hack into our computers. Fan. Them. I'll want them doing that and I want them to know that. If they do that type of thing that. There's going to be a penalty text message Bob do you know how many fourteen year old living in with their parents basement and hacked pretty much anything they want. Poll that makes me feel replete relatively good. It didn't take any great technology everybody. Who can get on the Internet for any length of time can figure out how to hack of the someone's email that just makes me feel so secure as Roy. Let's go to him into little Tim thank you for calling WWL. Are you afraid of Russia. No. However I think we need to be careful look at centrum has to be extremely carefully authority told. The Republicans to to stop. You know all of the shuffle but the independent stuff and goal or we things that they have to do. What he also has to realize. And his handlers do if he does not. It is he has won five plurality presidents of the United States. You can say all you want true about Hillary and whether she lives treated everything else some people's about trump took however. She actually had you know three point whatever million more votes and he did work electoral so he is suppressed that. Most people want him to do well our state overwhelmingly. Elected him however. He asked to ride the race would just like the police do every day an ass to satisfy congress and the he knows what is going along with WikiLeaks and he knows exactly what Bruton is not he's trying for some form of the pot. Whipped Russia. Which may be a way to build that maybe awaited people are bonuses actually object to. I partially it will never be able to forget and possibly never Padilla of what you said about women. What he says about McCain and POW. And what he said about people don't look like it. All right Tim thank you so very much let's go to Adrian and gentility. Adrian what about you are you afraid of rusher or you like Donald Trump weary but that does not seem to show any fear at all. Limited and I think. I think that is don't. Have. To put down you know the situation like. Might it not to know. Those people were all in in doubt you'd really well on. So like that leak site there and how that happened while you don't let it relax and give the award in Ottawa. Our enemy but I'm not a Democrat that all the go to. You know like armor on an acute that it. Down I have started. Not normal that. It kind of grow and become a Brett. Do not want you know. That's not my work like maybe from other on. Ordered the book treatment third. Bear in twelve presidential election. And there's no doubt. And quote you address. We're back with the article. And our blog at all of the critical. Edit what a rush. Every. Despite. Called. It was it Leo what. He was a part apply here they've broken on national. You know email. And that's what. Are pretty. Could be put to provide. Well I think it was approved comes out and it's beyond doubt and it's been in a main politicians. And look at putting but I want proof for you and I were I to look at this as a just an average person insulate. Well mandate columns run and that if that's the a's I just don't think we can't. We have to do something. We can't just a packet because then that's that gives them a green light to do whatever they wanna do it then we need to improve our own security to make sure it doesn't happen. On the other bank. Content will try to do the same thing would America look the Democrats blow at all. Oh. That you don't you know he's a veritable quote and all of the evidence that the president I haven't been too. Clown. Like budget as well minority in the senate. I've got to go sorry demean a touch off but it's a news time right now on WWL.
