Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin: Stop Treating Republicans Like Normal Politicians
"You hear it. This is a Washington Post columnist. And she used to call herself a conservative. I don't think she even bothers anymore. She's not. She's a conservative Republican Trump hating angry, angry little woman. I mean, man, is she nasty? And I remember seeing her on Tucker Carlson one night and it was so embarrassing the way Tucker just sliced and diced her. And this is what these folks need to keep doing because it confirms what we suspect that they really don't get it. They don't New Jersey, Virginia meant nothing to them. They think it was a blip on the radar. They think that Biden's 38% approval rating in The Washington Post ABC News poll? This week, pay no attention to that. They doubled down as evidenced by one gen Reuben. The mainstream media is part of this. They cover these issues. And then they go right back to having Republicans on talk shows asking them about other issues. Allowing them to air their phony grievances. Rather than grilling them incessant about why they tolerate this behavior. This is fascistic behavior. This is what fascist regimes do. They use extra outside the balance of reasonable democratic small D methods of getting their way. They intimidate they threat. They use the threat of violence. And this is absolutely intolerable. And it's been going on for years now in the Republican Party. And I think number one, the House should do something about it. And by the way, I think they might get a couple of Republican votes at least, both congresswoman Liz Cheney and congressman Adam kinzinger have said they might be inclined to go along with it, which I think would be very healthy. But I think you also have to have some new ground rules for the media. I think they have to stop treating Republicans like normal politicians. They're not normal politicians. This is not normal conduct. This is a party that spends its entire time cooking up these ridiculous cultural memes, fanning violence. And coming up with outright lies. We ought to just get out of their way. We ought to just get out of their way and let them keep spewing that kind of garbage and that ridiculousness let them keep doing it. Because we're going to win in such a massive

Chris Christie's New Book 'Republican Rescue' Is for Common Sense Conservatives
"Chris Christie, the former governor of New Jersey, got a book coming out later this month. It's called Republican rescue, saving the party from truth deniers, conspiracy theorists and the dangerous policies of Joe Biden. And it's a real honor to welcome back to the Mike Gallagher show, former governor of New Jersey, governor Chris Christie. Let's see governor, truth deniers, conspiracy theorists, and the policies of Joe Biden, there's nobody left. There are also much to know if there are a lot of really smart common sense conservative Americans are considered by all of that and want us to get our country back on track and doing positive things. Both here and around the world and hopefully this book will start to get that conversation going. Hi, I'm so looking forward to reading it and I'm always grateful when I see you on ABC News where you serve as a political and legal contributor. You often shock the panelists. I mean, George Stephanopoulos will look at you and cock his head at the common sense that you often and almost always exhibit do you mind pulling back the curtain for us for a moment and telling us what it's like. You know what our world and talk radio and right of center Americans think of the mainstream media. How difficult it is to function, how difficult is that for you to function in that capacity? Look, there are moments when I am the unicorn and that studio. There's nothing but left wing opinions sitting around the table often. And what you do is you just say to yourself, I know why it I know what I believe. And that's what I'm paid to do here is to sit there and give people my opinions. And I don't care how George reacts and I don't care how the others react quite frankly. And so what really happens is, you know, when you see George caucus head or interrupt me and say, do you really mean to use that word or say that? You're almost all the time. Can we say back, yes, that's exactly what I mean. And by the way, it's the same way off the air. It's not different. And so, you know, behind the curtain is yeah. They're trying to change my opinion. And I'm not changing my opinion on the things that I have talked about my whole
'Believing Is Seeing' Author Michael Guillen on How Science Led Him to God
"Science. It's nothing less than astonishing. When you realize that the idea, most of us have heard in our lifetimes that faith and science are at odds, is not even slightly true. It is in fact the opposite. It's hard for us to shift our paradigms. But we need to, as I said, I write about it a lot in my new book. But a friend Michael gillan, we've had him on before, has a new book out on the very same subject called believing is seeing. He's a real scientist. Michael gill and welcome. Hey, Eric, it's so good to see you again, my brother. Looking forward to our conversation. It's great. It's great to see you and to talk to you. I love talking about all this stuff, especially with somebody who knows about it the way you do. You really came to faith later in life. You had been hostile to faith. And now you're writing books, explaining to people that faith and science are friends and that this is a lie that they're at odds. In the book you talk about how the latest discoveries in neuroscience physics astronomy, mathematics. Point to faith in many ways. Talk about that because I mean, what do you mean when you say neuroscience? I'm not even sure, do I know what neuroscience is? Signs of the brain. Yeah, yeah. It's a study of the brain and, you know, I remember when I was at ABC News, I did a story on the Harvard brain bank, which is the largest repository of human brains. I think in the world, certainly in the nation. So I went there. It's Ian Massachusetts, not too far from Harvard. I was also teaching at Harvard at the time, so it was convenient for me. And I remember being able to hold, they allowed me to hold a human brain in my hands. And even to this day, Eric, it was just a really weird feeling to think, you know, this is the essence of what we call humanity, if you will. Never mind discussions about soul and the spirit. I mean, this is where our personalities. This is where we reside in this two, three pound brain. And the human brain is made up of two hemispheres, the right and the left. And a lot of studies have been done on that. And I talk in the book about I think it was in the 70s when scientists physicians started treating patients with epilepsy by severing the corpus callosum, which is the cable like it's a very thick cable of nerve fibers that connect the two hemispheres. And what they found was that when they, when they cut the two hemispheres, when they separated the two hemispheres like that, the epileptic seizures stopped. Not entirely but to a great degree. But there were some interesting side effects. And that's what I deal with in the book because ultimately I connect that research to my exploration of faith. It's a little bit complicated and we couldn't do it justice here, but I will say this much that when you when you look at these what we call split brain patients, these are patients whose hemispheres have been separated. They there's a lot of interesting side effects. For example, why quote one woman who goes grocery shopping, she's a split brain patient. And she finds that the two hands when she's reaching for groceries or putting groceries in the basket, they fight one another. And what I explain in the book is that what we've discovered from split brain patients is that our two hemispheres are basically at war with one

Dr Michael Guillen: Science Shows That Seeing Is Not Believing
"That's what we're talking about right now with dr michael gillen. The book is believing is seeing. So you're saying that we we meaning you and others were observing. The spin of certain galaxies ended implied that there was a lot more matter and mass. Then we could see and so what we infer from that observation so we inferred that there must be some things some substance within that galaxy that is causing it to spin so fast that we can't see it's an invisible form of stuff and that's all we called it. When i was a grad student but then as i in the years afterwards we came to call it dark matter. So that's what we call the missing mass that. Where is this mass. That's causing the galaxy galaxy to spin so fast and then beyond that we discovered that the universe is actually not only expanding but it's accelerating out words. That was huge. And i actually covered that when i was at. Abc news because a friend of mine at harvard was involved in that discovery. And we call that dark matter the bottom line just just to come back to the point i was making is that when i learned as a young scientists that most of the universe is invisible and we now believe ninety five percent of the observable universe is invisible to us. I could no longer live by the motto. Seeing is believing because here was science now demanding that i believe in a universe most of which i could not see so i had to ditch. Seeing is believing in that launched me on a very long. Herman has like journey you know. Tormented intellectual sequel has like journey. I literally make fun of.

I really you know. I i want to be serious and let the audience know that science or let's say materialists people who are scientistic who insist. There's no such thing as anything except what we can detect with our five senses anything beyond the realm of quote unquote science cannot exist. They make this statement now. That is a statement of faith. It's preposterous but you're telling me oh by the way even science contradicts that idea. Because you're saying there is a ton of matter we can infer the existence of it but we can't see it and so that right there causes you to think like well. Maybe we're getting some of this

Our Michelle friends and talked about it with ABC News. Investigative reporter Matthew Mosque on ABC is daily podcast start here. Claims of widespread voter fraud, ramping up further President Trump calling on supporters to head to the polls, not just a vote, but to keep watch. It's not new Poll monitors have long been part of our elections. Matthew explain what a poll watcher does. Yes. So a poll watcher is somebody who is at the polling place on behalf of the campaign. Each state has a different set of rules, but typically there are one or two representatives. Of each campaign allowed in the polling place simply to watch. What we found was that the Trump campaign has begun a really robust effort to try and trained poll watchers to have them at polling places. We got ahold of some video recordings of some of these training sessions that the Trump campaign was running. What we saw was a training that took place in Las Vegas, where a trump campaign employee whose job it was Virtually and in person to train volunteers to be at the polling place. What they're trying to do is have observers at the polling places. Take notes of anything they see that they think is an irregularity and to report those back to the campaign lawyers so they can use those in a legal challenge. If there's going to be one mounted, poll watchers have mostly been in the background. What's changed this year? The Trump campaign has been referring to this as Thie Trump Army and that on its own, has raised some concerns from election law experts who don't really like terminology like that. There was one expert who told us Army sounds like people there to engage in war with the enemy. The other part of this that's different is that for 40 years, Republicans have been Really restricted in their ability to do pull watching because of past episodes of voter intimidation. This year is different there going to be out in force, the campaign is using all the right language. They're advising their poll watchers not to do anything that could be perceived as intimidating voters. Anyone specific concern that was raised with us by some of the election law experts were the comments that the president made at the debate in which he was encouraging his supporters to go and watch at the polling pretty sings. Because of an earlier exchange during the debates on the question of the proud boys, and that makes election law experts very nervous about what kind of message is being sent Vote vote vote. The fried and campaign is also gonna have poll watchers. It really almost sounds like the Biden campaign is sending out people to watch the Trump poll watchers.

He was found not guilty. She was charged with malicious wounding, and she was found not guilty by reason of insanity. Malicious wounded. Yeah. Yeah.

So I think if you wanna make it a teachable woman, go out there and make it a teachable moment. But this sort of like end, by the way, as you know, I'm not into mob mentality is whatever just say, I'm really sorry. And I would like to take this opportunity in this pot warm to use it and for me Kevin Hart's apology. Hasn't really come up to snuff. Get a friend of mine who's a movie critic told me that in his latest film nights school. There were a lot of homophobic jokes. And it as well. I I will say I was very disappointed when I learned about all these homophobic slurs that he had made especially as a black man as a person of color. The black community has been so targeted by bias and racism and prejudice for so long that you would think that he would be an ally to the LGBTQ community because as targeted people we have to be allies to other targeted people. So that was very disappointing to me. But my understanding is that he has apologized and that he has evolved in his position. And I do wonder like ABBIE when is a person allowed to evolve when is a person allowed to become an ally. And I think he should be allowed to become an ally. And I would like to see him become the host of the Oscars and use that opportunity. On a big scale to become that ally. And I hope that that he's allowed that the tradition of the Oscars has always been my estimate in my memory Saudi when I was a kid, and Bob Hope was doing it was that it was a comedian sort of, you know, a funny person who was in the movies. Yeah. Right. So how about Tiffany haddish Steve Martin Martin short will Farrell Al Franken? Here's the first of all Al Franken stopping in the movies. Adam Sandler, Melissa McCarthy. Tina Fey Amy Poehler these issue with the site with their find issue with the has a problematic tweets in her past as well. Yes. And we talked about this on the show actually living with epilepsy. I will say though that the president of glad Sarah Kate echoed what you said that Kevin Hart shouldn't have stepped down. And then he should've stepped up. She wanted his apology to be a step forward. So again, I'm not against him necessarily going forward and using the platform as long as he comes out and says learn from our mistakes grow because I do think people can evolve and I am against mob mentalities. But I also think for me I haven't seen the full interview, by the way, we've only seen clips of that area day. But if he comes out specifically apologizing than everybody deserves a second. It's anyone knows what it's like watch Ellen Jenner standup. Not everyone that I've talked to has been I loved it. I thought it was hysterical.

Or maybe we said the wrong thing. But we want him to host what whatever we can do. We would be thrilled. And he should. Okay. So insult that was good.

We have got to let go of people who have apologize. If people are gonna evolve what's the point of evolving, if you're not going to move on? And frankly, the Oscars are what next month, and they don't even have a host here. Who's going to host the room back home list here people who could host? It reminds me of that when Cavanaugh got into the supreme court, and it was like his the only one that we could possibly find in this great country to do that job. It's similar to that in a way. So isn't that the problem that you also have people that don't want to do the job the Oscars is other than the Super Bowl one of the biggest TV events of the year? One be wanna do it because of things like this? What does it take to be forgiven? I personally thought his apology right after the Oscars. All this broke sort of a non apology apology. But I agree. I want him to use this as a real teaching moment. And I think Ellen has a platform, and she should be able to speak your mind. Why not? I just watched her stand up special on Netflix. And in it, she talks about coming out. And how hard it was because she ultimately ended up having her show cancelled. And she makes a joke about how other people in Hollywood were. I think she call them groundhog's like coming up and looking down to see if this to come out, and so she wants back down. So she knows better than anyone.
