Cutting Red Tape to Build Crucial Infrastructure, with Alex Herrgott
Play episode · 49 min

Alex Herrgott leads an independent federal entity whose sole focus is cutting millions of dollars in unnecessary project costs that environmental groups add, while slashing red tape and preventing anti-development activists from using the court system to prevent much needed economic recovery through acceleration of investment in our national infrastructure which provides immediate and lasting economic benefits for states, local communities and small businesses. Alex joined us to explain how the Permitting Council cuts through the bureaucracy and serves as a one-stop Federal shop to provide coordination across the Federal government for America's largest, most complex infrastructure projects.

Alex Herrgott was appointed by the President as the Executive Director of the Federal Permitting Improvement Steering Council on September 21st, 2018. Mr. Herrgott had been serving as the Associate Director for Infrastructure for the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) at the White House previously. Prior to his service with CEQ, Mr. Herrgott worked for Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma as Senior Staff from 2004-2011 at the Environment and Public Works Committee.

Mark Levin Audio Rewind - 10/27/20
On Tuesday's Mark Levin Show, historically the media has hated successful Republican Presidents. Abraham Lincoln inherited a nation in crisis with the American public blaming him for the country being on the brink of civil war. Some in the media criticized Lincoln's speeches including the Gettysburg address and went as far as calling him a gorilla. Yet, Lincoln won re-election despite being mocked. Many great presidents including the late great Ronald Reagan achieved success despite smears from critics in the media. Then, the Supreme Court has long been the topic of court-packing conversations amongst Democrats that have wanted to expand the number of justices on the Supreme Court since the days of FDR. The activists in the streets are just the same as the activists in Congress, the only difference is that some dress up as senators. Chuck Schumer is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in a suit because the Marxist wing of the Democrat Party has taken over. Progressives are adamant to dismantle the Constitution whether through repealing the filibuster, adding more justices to the court, or legislation that focuses on protecting the government rather than the people. Sadly, they are voting for the permanent dissolution of our Constitution. Later, Democrats are using the Constitution to destroy the Constitution. They don't serve the people, they serve the Party. If Democrats become the majority they will take control of America and give power to whomever, however, they want. Afterward, Rep Chip Roy calls in to discuss how Nancy Pelosi wants to hurt small businesses and healthcare. Finally, John James calls in to discuss his campaign for the US Senate.
