Will Weekend Mass Shootings Force Congress to Act?

"It looks like a bunch of hearings, Jake, but I want to start with your quote of Chris Murphy yesterday talking to my friend Jonathan capehart. I don't think you got 60 votes for his bill. I think it could get 60 votes for a stop order bill. The severe threat order of protection, I just don't know. I don't know what's in Murphy's Bill, but it's not narrow enough, has anything changed with two three more shootings. You know, there was one in Orange County after ten miles from where I used to live at a Taiwanese Chinese church where a 60 year old man shot up 5 people. There was one in Houston, of course, the awful one in Buffalo. Does anything change? No. There's no legislation here. I don't think I really don't think unless I'm looking something that will get 60 votes. There have been there have been efforts as you note to boost the reporting system for people with mental illness and things like that. That has not gotten the attention or the energy from anybody. So we're kind of in this position. I mean, Chris Murphy was deputized earlier this year, I believe, maybe it was last year. So work with Republicans to see what he could get ten votes for anything to get a background check Bill or something more and he's not been able to find 60 votes for anybody. So that's kind of where that's kind of where the status of the situation.

"Is we're in power That's the first one And you justifiably right We control all three branches of the government Well we don't really We have 50 50 in the Senate You need 60 votes to get measured things done I've been pushing the things up and proposing here and you've heard me speak to the nations I got in office And I need to get 60 votes to be able to even pass them Number one number two I think that it's they're not focused or other focused on understandably is the problem They're facing Weird Now Donald Trump didn't have those 60 votes It's crazy right Guys he seemed to get a whole bunch of things done Record economic economic growth regulatory reform education reforms I mean he seemed to do just fine tax cuts I remember all that happening We had Middle East peace deals breaking out all over the way How did that happen How did all that happen And it's kind of weird right How all that got through I mean criminal justice reform which admittedly I was not a fan of I don't change my mind based on who the president is but contrary to your conversations you've had with your leftist friends about Donald Trump I'm friendly with Donald Trump It's not me being a name dropper He has never demanded loyalty from anyone on every single policy I disagree with him but he got that through kind of weird right How Joe Biden can't get anything done Despite a majority in the House a majority in the Senate and right now he's got a good amount of liberal political judges around the country and he's sitting in The White House but he can't seem to get anything done It's the ultra maggots Rick Scott folks Rick Scott who's doing it The dastardly Rick Scott Sitting there in Florida destroying the country piece by piece Rick Scott did it It's gone Now Biden's proposal to fix the economy I would say his borderline hilarious but it's not hilarious because it's going to destroy your wallet destroy your finances and really do significant damage to the United States I'm not sure We can take another two and a half years of this buffoon in The White House His proposal is a simple one He wants to combat inflation and the now shrinking economy Remember the last quarter we shrunk We did not grow It was negative Was it 1.4% We shrank the economy last quarter right So it's kind of strange how a solution to that is the same thing we've done in the past that has led to the destruction we got to now He wants to spend more money he doesn't have yours And he wants the tax more money out of the economy Now if you're a common sense individual who can do basic cash flows you don't have to be really smart here You know I have to be slow here for the libs listening You know that inflation isn't everywhere as Milton Friedman said a monetary phenomenon right You print more money it chases the same amount of products More money means more prices because it's more money chasing the same or fewer amount of products It's not hard folks Again I'm sorry I don't mean to I'm not trying to talk down to the intelligent listeners in the audience but there are liberals this thing who I'm serious have a really difficult time comprehending basic things like this So if it's more money chasing fewer products right One of the best ways to try and at least get a hold on inflation you may not stop it but to stem the tidal wave is to create more products You have a $100 say you lived on an island and all they had was a hundred chairs and a $100 And a hundred people It's very simple I get it but again there are libs listening Each chair could command the dollar if everybody got one ale by a chair in it though right That's the way it would work If you magically created another hundred chairs because you guys were really busy and nothing to do on the island then each chair could fetch 50 cents because you'd have 200 chairs and a $100 right That's how you could stem the flow of inflation Overly simplistic I get it but not out of the realm of understanding right So if you were to print another $100 and imprint another hundred shares you would still have inflation to some extent but you would be stem because you'd have products sucking up the extra money Biden's solution is the exact opposite You understand that Biden's solution right now is to suck the creative energy out of the economy by hiking your taxes Which will do what Take capital out of the economy that could be invested in producing more products and services which will create we still have the money problem The money didn't go anywhere They printed it It's there So rather than absorb it up this extra production what Biden wants to do is shut production down creating even bigger shortages Folks we have tried this before It did not work They tried it for years in the 70s and the early 80s They tried this exact thing and keep in mind it was not just Democrats It was the Gerald Ford Republicans these Rockefeller Republican types and Jimmy Carter We tried this before and the stagflation area the blaze the belief the malevich of the Malay speech you're a bunch of fools you Americans get your act together You idiots Remember Jimmy Carter's speech most people who were alive at that time It was one of the most panned speeches in the history of the presidency Biden's doing the same thing now It's a chicken farmers Treadmill builders Big oil big meat small meat medium meat meat meat meat meat chicken farmers The guy is an idiot He's doing the same thing Over and over again And he's doing it and he's allowed to do it and the people around him who are smart he's not He's a dunce But the people around him are not stupid They are doing it because we have culture is rotted our education system is falling apart And you really believe because you probably learned it Many of you on the left who listen to this show from your grammar school teacher all the way through university right You have been taught by your teachers that Ronald Reagan was a cancerous rod on humanity that FDR saved the world JFK was Camelot and that Donald Trump is a Nazi fascist That's what you've been taught All of that of course is inaccurate and wrong but if you ever asked yourself why we keep repeating the same mistakes when you can just go back and look at the numbers we do it because you're not taught what was a mistake You're told it was a success So the things that led us to inflation and stagflation in the 70s and 80s We're doing the same thing now Ron DeSantis is trying to put a stop to that in Florida Article by the Miami Herald that's to the left the Lenin but here we go anyway Ron DeSantis signs bill mandating communism lessons in class as GOP leans on education Now you know the Republicans pounce stories right You always got to have a Republican's pounce story That's how they write these stories Republicans pounce Republican seas Here it is They know it is however the first state to mandate school instruction on that day is Florida Republicans continue to seize on education policy While placing school curriculum at the forefront of their political priorities ahead of the 2022 midterms.

"But I want to talk to you, Kevin about Joe Biden gave a speech yesterday. I guess was it in Atlanta? Where was it that he gave his yes, I believe it was in Atlanta and it was directly trying to campaign and proposition four. The very deceptively named voting rights bill that they're trying to push through. But they have a very sweet thesis. If you don't vote for us, you're a racist. Isn't that sweet? Well, I love it when people have really adopted this measure recently. You've got to really pay attention to legislation that is authored by Democrats. Because whatever they title it, it's almost always usually the opposite of what that is. So build back better is really going to dig deep, deeper. Dig debt deeper. You're going to see things pretty much go in the opposite direction of whatever they name the bill. And in this particular situation, where they're saying they want to expand voting rights. Let's do the dot to dot on what they have to do to quote expand the right for people to vote. In order to do so, you have to de certify the actual voters. So they want to do away in this legislation with every voter ID law that's been passed by any state, nationwide. This is a federalization of all elections. If your state has voted a voter ID law into effect, this would neutralize that. So get rid of all actual credible identification of the voters. They want to then make sure that whether or not this thing is voted on in the Senate formally and passed by a normal majority and what would be necessary to do that. The Republicans are going to filibuster this. This is a bad piece of legislation. And they probably don't have 60 votes to overcome that anyway. They probably don't have a simple majority vote to overcome it because Joe Manchin and Kirsten sinema have both pledged to keep the voting rights legislation

"So it put in place policies like automatic voter registration in two weeks of early voting and a ban on partisan gerrymandering, and that would apply nationwide and, more recently, Republicans blocked a vote in the Senate, even on debating it, so it hasn't even actually had a real debate in the Senate and then the John Lewis Voting Rights Act would restore the provision that states with a history of discrimination. Have to once again approve their voting changes with the federal government and it would update and modernize that formula. And I suspect they are now rewriting it to also strengthened Section two of the Voting Rights Act. And it's important to remember Congress has the power here to set rules for federal elections into right civil rights sauce. They can overrule the court. There was a case in 1980, where the Supreme Court severely weakened the Voting Rights Act. There were people like John Roberts, who was a young lawyer in the Reagan Justice Department who wanted to keep that week's Supreme Court decision, the Congress Overruled the court in 1982 and strengthen the Voting Rights Act and renewed it for another 25 years. So Congress has the ultimate authority here. They just have to use that authority. Democrats have been unwilling to do it because they won't eliminate the filibuster to pass this legislation with 51 votes. As long as you need 60 votes, Nothing is going to pass, but Democrats do have the power. To pass these votes. These legislation with 51 votes. They just haven't used that authority. Yeah, Yeah.

Boardman speaking on ABC this week, West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin told ABC that President Biden is ready for Congress to send him the bill. There's no doubt in my mind. Never has been a doubt in my mind that he is anxious for this bill to pass and for him to sign the president Biden issued a statement on Saturday, saying he never intended to link passage of the compromise bill to a larger separate bill filled with Democratic priorities.

But less than half of that amount was pledged at the initial conference and the amount was a billion dollars less than the previous year, the U. N Secretary general's office said in the statement.

Bipartisan Senate Group Reaches Tentative Infrastructure Deal

"Group. Of centrist senators says it's reached a tentative deal on an infrastructure bill. A statement this evening from the five Democrats and five Republicans says it is in their words are realistic Compromise framework to modernize our nation's infrastructure and energy technologies. And it comes days after the White House ended a weeks long effort to reach a deal with Senate Republicans. The New York Times. Emily Cochran joined us earlier on w. T O P to answer the question. Is this the deal we've been waiting for? I think there's a lot of skepticism about this plan. Certainly it's a sign Of progress that they have reached a tentative agreement. The president had reached out to a couple members of this group to encourage them to continue the work. And it's important to note that the amount of spending that we understand that they likely agreed to about 579 billion in new spending is a lot closer to the one trillion number the president has pushed for. But in this Congress, you do need to see at least 60 votes in the Senate. But alone in the house, where there's a slim slim margin, and it's not clear that enough people will get on board because there is such deep divisions over how big this package should be. And how do you pay for it? Is it safe to call this infrastructure in the traditional sense, roads, bridges, airports and none of that human infrastructure that President Biden and some progressives really wanted. Yes, so that the group was careful not to go into too many details about the plan. They didn't give specifics. But my reporting shows that this will likely be focused on the core physical infrastructure that has traditionally been supported by members of both parties. I

"Because if you're talking about just criminal investigations, we have For one branch of government. They're designed this with the DOJ. We have We have local law enforcement. State law enforcement, which is why again there hundreds of people who have been arrested over the January 6th riots. So back to this generous six commission. This is now being used by the media as a litmus test of whether you're okay with what happened on January six. And that, of course, is not correct. You can point out that the January 6th commission does not seem like it is directed at eliciting information that is going to allow Congress to fix the process. It seems more like it is designed to elicit a political response just in time for the mid term elections because everything in Washington D. C is politics and to pretend otherwise is simply silly. Sentiment. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell declared his opposition to the House bill. Earlier on Wednesday, he joined House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy in dismissing the commission is unnecessary and unfair. McConnell said in a speech on the Senate floor that after careful consideration, he'd come to the conclusion that House Bill was slanted and unbalanced. He points each other investigations underway by law enforcement officials and in Congress. And of course it supports the commission. Is going to need 60 votes to advance in the 50 50 Senate. That means at least 10 senators would need to vote with all of the Democrats that probably is unlikely. Even some kind of wavering Republicans. People like Susan Collins have said. They don't really like the way that this commission is structured, particularly because Allows Democrats he full capacity on the commission to select all the staff as we saw with Mueller investigation, who you select for your staff makes an awful lot of difference in the final product that is produced by any Quote unquote independent body. Bipartisan problem Solvers caucus had endorsed the commission, according to The Wall Street Journal, saying the plan had won support for more than 75% of the 58 member group. But it is strongly opposed by McCarthy, another house GOP leaders, who say that it is counterproductive and also to narrowly focused on the events of January six, right, So the Republicans are all saying, OK, fine. If you wanna do. This is a political thing like how much is rhetoric contributing to political violence in the United States? Then you do need to make this a truly bipartisan investigation. They need to look at things like, for example, the congressional baseball shooting or like the BLM riots over the summer. Or, like antifa over the summer. How much does rhetoric contributor violence? If that's really what we're talking about here, if that's the direction we wanna go with General Six commission if the issue is not what systemically went wrong to allow the walls of the capital B bridge if the issue instead is how closely is rhetoric tied to action. Well, then did you have to broaden out the scope of the inquiry? It's not unfair argument. Language agreed upon by the Democrats in a couple of Republicans, particularly John Kokko from New York States that the focus of the commission will be quote the domestic terrorist attack on the Capitol and targeted violence in domestic terrorism relevant to such terrorist attack. Paco has said the scope could include events that occurred before or after the date of January. 6th if commissioners chose McCarthy. McConnell said the commission should examine political violence broadly defined, including the actual murder of a Capitol police officer who was rammed by a car on April 2nd and riots during racial justice protest last summer. McConnell said that he was open to hearing hearing arguments for and against commission on Tuesday and then McConnell sort of reversed himself, and he said that he wasn't particularly interested in this particular process. Okay, so Democrats, of course, are jumping all over this, and they're suggesting that this just demonstrates the Republicans don't want to hear the truth about January six. I think we know the truth about January, 6th. By the way, if if Democrats one full investigative power, they could just have investigated this in the context of like an impeachment investigation, which they didn't decide to ram through a very poorly and vaguely worded impeachment charge against Trump. And then they decide to ram that through without an investigation. So it's been politics top to bottom here and the January 6th commission is justice. Political Again, There could be an integration of January 6th commission. That makes sense when you talk to the actual law enforcement officials responsible Or not staffing up at the Capitol and you look at the response time. Sure you look at whether there was a delay in the executive branch receiving orders to go in response to the crisis of the capital. All that could be encompassed. But if this is gonna turn into a broader conversation about whether Refusal to acknowledge election results inevitably leads to this sort of activity. Then, of course, it would be remiss to to not investigate people on the other side of the aisle for doing the exact same thing. It's more of this in just one second first, Let's talk about a simple fact. Everything that you want in life right now could be personalized. Well, why not your mattress right now?

"So what will they do? Well, if the Republicans right if the Republicans ram through with the lame duck Senate and a lame duck president, a Supreme Court nominee, then the first thing that Democrats will do when they take the Senate. Is they'll do away with the filibuster rule. By the way, I think that's a good thing I wish the Republicans would do away with it. Now. Filibuster is, in my view, unconstitutional. It's certainly undemocratic. But that's the first thing so that they can pass legislation with 51 of 52 votes rather than 60 votes. That's number one. The second thing, they'll D'oh. Is add more seats to the Supreme Court now, wouldn't you? If you were the Democrats, you think they're going to stand by and let the court be dominated by conservatives for the next five or 65 or six decades? No way. So the Chuck Schumer And Joe Biden. If Biden winds and Schumer is the majority leader, no doubt in my mind, they are adding four new Supreme Court seats that will be filled with Biden appointees to the court. But They're not going to stop there. They're going to move forward with statehood for Washington, D C in Puerto Rico Now what That would mean statehood. For those two states would mean that essentially, Republicans would never have a majority in either House of Congress again. Certainly not in the U. S. Senate because those are four automatic Democratic U S Senate votes so the Republicans need to, I think tread carefully here. There's no doubt in my mind. So you also have a situation where Mitch McConnell he's got to keep an eye on the Senate elections and the short term and long term interests of the United States Senate and the Republican majority are not necessarily in sync here. Because he's got a lot of vulnerable members. Now, Trump and McConnell want the same thing in the long term, which is more Republican justices on the Supreme Court. But in the short term, McConnell wants to hold on to that Senate. So if he forces a vote on this before the election, think about what that does to Susan Collins in Maine. Think about what that does to Martha McSally in Arizona. Arizona is also a special case because that's a special election, and Mark Kelly Gabby Gifford's husband. If he wins that election, he seated right away. He's not seated in January. He seated right away in November. So we we don't know what's gonna happen, except for the fact that it's 2020. We do know what's gonna happen, Which is this is going to be a tie broken by the Senate by the Senate president who's the vice president, and then this person will decide who the president says now. Last two things I want to mention, and I'll take your calls on any aspect of this at 1 808 for 89222. That's 1 808 for 89 to 2 to Steve Autobot. Oh, coming up a little later this hour. Atlantic City City Councilman Jesse Kurt's Excuse me, Steve out about those next hour Jesse Kurds coming up a little bit later this hour. The last two things I want to mention. This may seem a little insensitive. It's obeah. Let's pretend that you agree with Justice Ginsburg's view of the Constitution and the world. Let's pretend maybe you don't have to pretend maybe your a left wing person and you appreciate what she did on the court. Should she have stepped aside. During the Obama administration. Look, she was in her eighties. She had cancer multiple times. Was she being a little selfish? By trying to stay on until her last dying day, Knowing that her death during the Trump administration could actually tilt the balance of the court, far to the right if you're a progressive I want you to answer that question. Honestly, 808 for 89222. If you're a conservative, I want you to pretend you're a progressive for the purposes of that discussion, And here's the last thing I'll say We know who the type of person that Donald Trump is going to pick. He released a list which I think is commander, But we know they're no mysteries with his kind of Supreme Court picks would be nice if Biden would do the same thing. In fact, I spoke about that with Alan Dershowitz last week. You'll never hear it because his portion of the interview didn't record. The Constitution. It does not require A nominee to the Supreme Court to be an attorney. So Donald Trump's not gonna do this because all of his picks all the people on his list are attorneys. But what if I think this would be a great thing? Not just for Donald Trump or for any future president? I would love to see a non attorney on the Supreme Court. They never discussed this in the Constitution of the notion that you'd have to be an attorney, the on ly thing they discussed, according to Madison, when they were debating this Was whether or not in order to be on the Supreme Court. You should have to be a landowner. That was the only thing they thought about putting in their ultimately, they didn't I'll be honest with you. The Supreme Court is not a court. The Supreme Court has become a veto counsel that determines what laws are constitutional and which ones aren't if then, if they're going to behave in a manner of a veto council, a council of elders Then how about some others? More people on there? You have nine lawyers, all of whom went to the same two schools, Harvard and Yale. In addition, They are eight of them had the same job prior to being on the Supreme Court. They all came from the court of Appeals. The only one that didn't was Elena Kagan Now, even Arlen Specter, the former chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said that this was 11 years ago that Obama he didn't do this. Obama should look beyond the monastery of the courts. When he chooses a successor to Justice Souter. I would hope that he would look beyond the circuit courts of appeals, which now populate the Supreme Court and pick someone with greater world experience and diversity. If you look at what the Supreme Court is doing there, making rulings on immigration, they're making rulings on military affairs. They're making rulings on finance and the economy there, making rulings on foreign affairs and making rulings on civil rights. So how about we get some other smart people on there? How about some writers and again they could be partisans or people that there are journalists that covers the Supreme Court that know more about how the Supreme Court works than some judges do. That's not an exaggeration. But like if you're going to pick some, how about some writers, some journalists in general, some economists, some politicians, Rand Paul Does anybody know the Constitution Better than Rand Paul ran cold being outstanding Supreme Court justice. You know how about some academics? How about some historians? How about some doctors? How about somebody from law enforcement? None of those people are on the court, and what this does is to fold one. By not having any of those people on the court is it alienates the voters from the court a little bit. Americans feel as if it's not their court. It's this or stare group of academic Ivy League ivory Tower intellectuals that don't know what it's like to work for a living. Okay. When don't know what it's like to deal with the very same situations they're making rulings on. Additionally, think of the perspective that having a journalist an economist, a politician, a general on the court would bring to the court when they're discussing these very issues, so I'd love to hear your thoughts. One on the question was Ruth Bader Ginsburg being a little selfish by trying to hang on as long as she did? 808 for 89222 and two..
