3:10 pm
general jack keane, general, thanks for being here. >> yes. wonderful to be here, frankly. >> bret: it seems like the russian, u.s. policy in the big picture, has shifted. has changed, on really both sides. >> yeah. i totally agree with that. that's a great question. the fact is that after the first failure in the north and obviously second phase was donbas region in the southern coast, russia began to change the narrative to cover the failure. and the change in narrative was we are conducting a war against united states and nato. proxy war that they are conducting and that's who we are opposing. now, the narrative on state run television is not just we're in ukraine to fight nazis or committing genocide against russian-speaking people in the south and east, we're fighting united states and nato who are trying to encroach on the security and stability of russia. this has been a constant theme of his when conflict hasn't been
3:11 pm
taken. >> bret: full on proxy war in his mind. >> yeah. and it builds that big narrative to convince the russian people that russia was the victim. the second thing the united states policy and listen the administration is not going to agree with what i'm going to say but i think actually this is what has happened. there is a policy shift. and initially first couple of weeks, women's support for the ukrainians in terms of arms and ammunition, very specific. it was more of a push them and based on very good sources that i had, biden administration was putting pressure on zelenskyy to make a deal. take a settlement. is zelenskyy and his troops did an extraordinarily well and as a result of that. world opinion was changing. public opinion in the united states suddenly very supportive of the ukrainians, zelenskyy one of a kind figure. captured everybody emotionally and psychologically.
3:12 pm
helping defeat the russians inside of ukraine. actually using the word to attain victory and then went all out to get ammunition and supplies. not just out of the united states depots. but organized 40 other countries to do the same. so the policy, yeah. it has shifted. >> bret: why do you think the offensive for the russians has stalled again? you know, they are putting all this fire power in there. putting all these people in there. and, yet, the ukrainians are repelling in a number of different cities. >> i will tell you, bret. looking at it now, after this much time a couple of months. there are systemic problems there that they cannot overcome. >> bret: russia. >> yeah, russians. first of all, they are generals. they cannot put together a competent campaign plan that's sensible and that people are capable of executing properly within their limitations, overly ambitious. conducting an an attack donbas
3:13 pm
four separate axes which they did entering the country at the beginning. the second thing is command and control. centralized old soviet monologue command and control doesn't work well on a fluid battlefield with all the technology that we have on the battlefield today. what people don't understand, the american military, fighting a battle like that. we put a plan together. and then our subordinate leaders at the junior level make decisions based on what the enemy is doing. they don't have to ask permission. they just act. because they are in a difficult situation. the other thing they reorganize the russian military into these battalion tactical groups that everybody has been hearing about. in doing that they gave away the headquarters above them normally control about five of them. and they are gone. so they fight these units individually with no one providing reconnaissance for them. they don't have the artillery that they should have. and they never them together because they don't have the
3:14 pm
capability to do it. logistics has failed miserably again. >> bret: quickly, general, the question i get time and time again is how does this end and how does putin have an off ramp? this thing? >> well, may 9th may tell us a little bit. because that's a celebratory thing in russia's world war ii to defeat naziism. he could begin to take a victory on that day, based on the territory he owns, mariupol. that is why he is attacking mariupol. is he willing to take the casualties by the way now. starve them out. 9 may is coming. they want that done by 9 may so they can celebrate actually in mariupol as well as moscow. claim that claim kherson and that kind of like a province politicize make it independent place. donbas extend that a little bit. they have gained some territory but not much. and i think transin moldova come into play something they
3:15 pm
politicize as independent republic. that is something but it's a far cry from where he was. i think they have to come to the realization that actually occupying a significant amount of territory in ukraine is likely not going to happen. ukrainians they have an opportunity here to push the russians out. they are going to need significant amount of support. and my calculation, just on artillery alone the russians, the one thing they do well is artillery and the thing that kills artillery is artillery. we will have to send them a lot to do it. a lot more than we already sent other nations. there is opportunity there. at the end of the day, it will be probably likely that there will be some kind much hopefully with the ukrainians taking pa back most of their territory. the opportunity is there for them too it. >> bret: a long time. general keane as always. thank you. grand? >> bret: amber heard talks about domestic violence during her marriage to johnny depp.

prolonged ukrainian resistance to infiltration or invasion would surely alter putin's calculus more than obama's toothless sanctions of empty diplomatic it gesture as preposterous geneva agreement wasn't worth the paper it was written on. i walk into people every day i want to know what charles would think about this moment. i'm guessing that's pretty close. >> i think. so i think about this all the time. i have gone back and real estate so much of what he wrote in his books and columns. he was unfortunately credit dib by mr. prescient. he learned tis history. when you let a tyrant push and push and don't push back they take more. look at writings from 2014 when putin first took crimea back in 8 even when he went into georgia 2000 and 2,000 when putin was just uttering his goals my father saw it incredible by mr. clearly and he knew the lessons of history going back to the

is. >> to slow too often it created the inflation now they want to have credit for solving the problem when in fact the problem may actually exacerbate the situation.
3:53 pm
don't have enough tools in the tool kit for the economy that we have today. >> when they were talking about inflation being transitory, it's like standing outside looking at a tornado and predicting it is not going to come at you. we are already in a recession. so they have to deflect all of the things not going to well for this administration. >> bret: need some dam mean for dramamine forthe stock market. inflation much too high. powell puts the hammer on price hikes. inflation since the 2008 wall street crash if surging prices continue that prospect has sent stocks sliding. guy benson political editor down jeff mason white house correspondent for reuters and "the washington post" columnist marc thiessen. mark, you know, for people looking at the economy, listening to the administration talk about it, there is a disconnect.
3:54 pm
>> very much so. and first of all i dismiss krauthammer. i wish i had gone to medical school. inflation was already eating away everybody's paycheck and now inflation and the stock market are eating away at the retirement savings and for this president the list of litany of worse keeps getting worser. we already have the worst inflation in 440 years. worst crime rave since the 190s. worst border crisis and worst labor shortage 11.5 record million unfilled jobs in this country. worst mortgage rates in 14 years and worst productivity since 1947. on the cusp of a recession to put a cherry on top. this is a bad situation for this president and is he not getting any good news. >> bret: jeff dog, that point in our new fox news poll compared to two years ago your family financial situation is there is that word again worse 44%. that is the head wind the democrats faces a they go to november. >> you know, bill clinton as governor when he was running for
3:55 pm
president said it's the economy, stupid. i think that phrase still applies. and virtually every political campaign sense. it will certainly apply this year and apply in 2024. it's a challenge inflation is not something that he can just bring down unilaterally. he likes to blame the war in ukraine and covid and i think that economists would back him up in saying that those are certainly having an impact. he owns the economy. he owns this -- the governing right now. and it's certainly something that republicans are going to hammer him about in the midterms and after that. >> bret: guy, we talk a lot about different issues and obviously the abortion issue rose to the top this week with that leaked draft opinion it really is the economy. >> right. we have a very short attention span collectively in our society these days. what you are not going to lose sight of how much you are paying every single day for gas, for
3:56 pm
groceries and that sort of thing. your point about abortion which is clearly at the forefront of our discussion now. i think the democrats who might be banking on that to be sort of the savior issue for them might be some wish casting. some wishful thinking there looking at the new fox news polling. yes, most people support retaining roe v. wade but also support pretty substantial restrictions on abortion that democrats typically don't want to talk about hence your exchange yesterday with congressman from ohio had cannot want to tack that question that you put to him because it's thorny for the other side of this equation as well pennsylvania senate race. take a listen to the debate last night. >> i have been america first my entire life. president trump endorsed me calling me america first i knows what you should know i love this country. >> people naturally pivot toward democrats who won't solve your problem but they will cut you a check. that's how we are on this path
3:57 pm
where we find ourselves on the road to serfdom. we need to get america first. we know we want to send an america first senator to washington. not a squish, because we know that's how we are losing our country to the radical left. >> bret: after j.d. vance's win you can't get more trumpy on that stage i don't think, marc. this is your race. i asked everyone to pick one what do you think. >> the prism of the ohio senate race if i was david mccormick i would be sweating. donald trump picked somebody who was not a leading candidate who was in third or fourth place with 10% of the vote and catapulted him over the top into first place. before trump -- before trump's endorsement mccormick was leading oz in the fox news poll. he is now up 2.5% in the rcp average ahead of him. so, it's not the 23 points that j.d. vance got but it's a bump and in a divided field, it could be the decisive factor. >> mccormick is supported by a
3:58 pm
bunch of former president trump former advisers. >> bret: including his wife. jeff, your race? >> my race is the georgia governor's race. also interesting with the trump angle. the former president is supporting senator perdue against governor kemp. governor kemp, however, is really way ahead in the polls, both in the primary and in election or for the general against stacey abrams. he has a lot of money. stacey abrams also has a lot of money. though she is spending a lot of money. former senator perdue apparently is considering dipping into his own fortune to make up for that cash change. >> j.d. vance 32%. perdue 32%. the difference is the field isn't divided. >> bret: your race, guy? >> looking at the general. florida governor's race. i don't think the outcome is necessarily indoubt. the incumbent is in pretty good shape desantis, the margin could being in a election statewide as we start to look even past 2022
3:59 pm
i got my eye on this one. >> bret: you think desantis is lays the ground work? >> i think he might be. i think he is building a reputation and a record and a big win down in florida could reallily put wind in his sales. >> bret: can he do that in. >> trump isn't without the baggage. is he a counter puncher but without all the negative. >> bret: all right, panel. thank you very much. ♪ >> bret: finally tonight, a special day ♪ >> bret: on this cinco de mayo carlos is spreading happiness to
