Joe Biden: The Story That Never Happened in Southern Delaware
"Biden worries about over you and me. Ordinary Americans who have to fend for ourselves. Check this out. And I know it's controversial, but I got it done once. Ban assault weapons and high capacity magazines. I was getting criticized when I first passed this law when I was a senator. And guess what? I was down in southern Delaware, do a lot of hunting and fishing down there. And I was walking up one of the crick beds. And the guy standing, so you want to take my gun, it's not going to take your gun. So when you're telling me I can't have more of the next number of bullets in my gun. And I said, what do you think the deer you're hunter, where Kevlar vest? What the hell you need? 20 bullets for. You must be a hell of a terrible shot. I'm serious. Think about it. Think about the mass shootings. Yeah, hey Alec, I'll take things that never happened to Joe Biden for 20, please. Because that never happened. He didn't have a conversation with some guy in the creek bed while he's off hunting and the guy on the creek bed said you're trying to take away my guns. Why are you limiting how many rounds I should have? You know, corn
'The Silencing of the Lambs' With Author Michael Brown
"Michael Brown, my friend, welcome. Great to be with you, Eric. Thanks for the memories. You've got a great story, which we're not going to get into today. We've talked about that many times on the program before, but you have a new book out, and unfortunately it's very important. The book is titled the silencing of the lambs, the ominous rise of cancel culture, and how we can overcome it. So what do you say in the book, roughly speaking? There really is an attempt to shut us up to silence us to cancel us to marginalize us and to put us in a place where we can not speak up and get our message out. When I say us, I mean followers of Jesus with conservative biblically based values, I'm not paranoid about this. In fact, a large part of the book is strategies as to how we can overcome. But this is real. I mean, we're in a situation today where it's not just a matter of we disagree with you. But we have to cancel you out. You know, in China, we'll talk about someone with disappeared. They use it as a vowel. They were disappeared. They suddenly, they're not there anymore, or under Soviet Union. Some of this disappearance, they're blanked out. They're blotted out. That's what's happening in a different way. Barry Weiss has spoken up about this. She was in New York Times journalist, a liberal feminist quote, married to another woman and she found the atmosphere in New York Times for her to be so toxic that if you raise a narrative, you are not just criticized but you would cancel she called it social murder and it's so extreme now that you have voices like the irreverent atheist Bill Maher or reverend Jewish comedian Sarah Silverman or actors like Alec Baldwin or sports personalities like Dana White and they're all raising their voice against this Nick Cave singer songwriter in Australia said that cancel culture is mercy's antithesis. So you do one wrong thing. 15 years ago, something in your useful days. It comes out today. You can lose your

Should Christina Yuna Lee's Family Sue the Manufacturer of the Knife?
"Look at the stabbing of the Asian woman in New York as the caller just referred to. She was loved. She has a family, maybe that family should sue. And I'm not trying to be a smart Alec here. I mean this. Maybe she should sue the family should sue the manufacturer of the knife. That the homeless guy with the list of felonies, an arm long, an arms length long, used to kill her with. He doesn't have any money. They won't get the family won't get any justice from him in terms of compensation. So maybe they sue the manufacturer of the knife. The knife, I'm sure the company that manufactures the knife does marketing. Maybe they're marketing influence the deranged guy to pick up that knife, buy it from Walmart and follow a woman in and stab her to death. This is where we are, right? This is where we are.

Alec Baldwin Says He Wasn't Responsible for 'Rust' Crew Member's Death
"Which clip is Alec Baldwin, guys. Kind of an amazing story. Where he sits down and tearfully says that he's not responsible for the death of this young woman on the set of this movie. I don't want to pile on. I can't imagine what that must feel like to know that you had your hand on a gun that you fired and killed this woman. Now he says he didn't fire the gunner he didn't pull the trigger or something. And Mark told me that he had a number of callers on his show this morning say that with certain kinds of guns that can happen that if you pull the. What do you call it? And I'm not, listen, I'm not as adept. Yeah, the hammer. If you pull the hammer back, it can fire without putting your finger on the trigger. Now, I don't really understand how an ongoing investigation could be thwarted by this dramatic prime time interview where Alec Baldwin can mount his defense before he faces his possible day in court. And there's George Stephanopoulos, they got the movie lighting and the music. She's a young woman dead. And I don't like Alec Baldwin. I think he's very talented, but I know what he is politically. I don't care what your politics are. I wouldn't wish that on anybody. To know that you were involved in something that led to the death of this young cinematographer on the set of his movie.
"alec" Discussed on Today, Explained
"News works these days is that it comes to you. No matter where you are or what you're doing. Like, when you're hanging out in your couch on a Thursday night at 11 o'clock in your phone buzzes and it says that Alec Baldwin accidentally killed someone? Well, I think obviously there's the sort of the lurid aspect right that it's an Oscar nominated Emmy winning beloved actor involved in a terrible tragedy. It's a very rare thing that happens, so that's why it continues to kind of dominate the news cycle. But Brent Lang is an executive editor over at variety. If you dig a little deeper it points to some fundamental issues involving safety on film sets and television sets. And some larger labor problems that have been exposed in recent months. And really a growing sense of grievance among the grips and gaffers and camera operators and makeup artists and all of the hundreds of people who allow us to enjoy these movies and shows that we stream and we binge and we buy tickets for a non pandemic times who are frustrated that they feel that they've been sort of pushed to the breaking point and often asked to engage in unsafe work practices. Well, I want to get there, but let's start with what we know happened on this set. Let's start with this movie. It's called rust and clearly no one had heard of it until last week. And frankly, probably a movie that no one would hear that much about. It looks like it was a very low budget action film. I think vultures called them geezer teasers. Their films with kind of high end actors who come in and do these sort of action oriented movies that get sold to foreign markets and appear on.

"Is your feeling about. The gaze of the the gays over kobe movements and <hes>. The phenomenon of gaze having parties. And what if you read the velvet rage just about the party. It's any those parties. I've been to those parties. I used to work at those parties. I was in atlanta's comedian for using years. So i've been parties all over the world and it's phenomenon that as far as i'm concerned it's a great place to visit as like an anthropological study and i can say that i'm not patronizing. It's just that. I've never been one of those boys. I like being a part of the party and liked being invited to the party but when it came down to it i looked at everybody on. I'm not one of these boys. Just because that's never been my currency to be kind of a to have the body and to have the circuit party body and a to have that group of friends that is exclusively hot and and muscley. That's coming from a really. That's coming from a really am trying to find the appropriate word. Needy isn't the right word. But it's that's coming from a need to be accepted. Adopt seated need to be accepted. And when i when. I said to you know nobody feels like there are enough. That's doubly true for queer kids growing up. It's like you're never accepted essentially as who you are. And so a lot of queer people grow up with the need. I have to be gaga. I have to be a superstar amazing. It's not enough for me to be me. And i can say that because that was me for most of my adult life then you come to l. a. and then you don't work for three years and then you have to figure out who you are. You know you have to figure out who you are without a job without the car without the body without any of those things and then you find out what your currency is just as just as a human being and <hes>. So when i see those things. I'm i i get it. I'm strangely not judgmental. I get that because when you go to those parties who who's been was circuit party. Raise your hand just to. I've been to the white party. Wants beloved by choice. Yeah you didn't go there bunch. You work like a dave holmes. No no no. No i am about to combust from self consciousness at all times just everywhere in the world so there i feel like i just. There's no way that it would be anything other than well area. Certainly but it is fun. And then there's there's you add on top of the drugs you add a top booze or whatever you're taking and it's it's a euphoric experience. You know it's kind of like it is. It is the closest you'll feel to being kind of young and beautiful and amazing and you get the high off of that but you know like most heiser. It doesn't last and it doesn't really ever kind of penetrate the the real need to interdict engage a lonely way you can still attend those things and have a billion people around you and still feel sad. You know it's it's <hes>. It's it's a thing. And so when i saw the gays and covid as like well here we go. I mean that outweigh that need outweighs. The need to be safe. But you know it's nothing new. I mean i was in new york during the eighties and there were people who were still going bath houses. There are people who are still having unsafe sex or people who still you know who who would not participate in any of the safe sex guidelines because they still wanted to engage in that way.

"Right. They're not functional and the states are the places where innovation can take off is what we discussed earlier that so much attention is focused on DC. But the majority of particularly your domestic policy happens at the state level, whether that's education criminal Justice, college campuses, all of these things usually for the most part are. Funded appropriated and dealt with at your state level. So it's imperative for state lawmakers to be able to come together and either learn from state that did something horrifically wrong or learn from a state that did something the right way, and maybe tweak it a little bit to fit their own way to address the quotes that were just used. He said exactly what it is that we do. We are for limited government. We are for free markets, and we are for federalism. We are for states rights. We believe at the end of the day the state's nine times out of ten can do it better than the the federal government. And I think that's kind of demonstrating itself right now down the street from us with regards to the influence, though, I am still trying to kind of suss out where the line should be. If there is one answer to that between the public sector and the private sector. I mean, the Lisa mentioned that documentary United States have Alec PBS documentary. I wanna play a clip from that documentary with regards to the prison population, which has grown dramatically in recent decades. According to a report last year from the prison policy initiative there are about two. Three million people incarcerated in America's legal system. That's the largest prison system in the world in this clip from the documentary, a member of the private sector, representing the American bail coalition said this when speaking on criminal Justice reform at an Alec event crazy is not known that you've already figured out that if I can talk you into doing this Bill my clients are going to Mike Simoni on the bond premiums.

"Back now to our conversation with Shelby Emmett and Lisa graves. Lisa. Let me give you a chance to react to Shelby's last common. And then we'll keep going with more audience questions. Thanks, joshua. Well, you know, I documented the actual history of that stand your ground legislation, and what we know is that the NRA lobbyists took that Bill to an Alec meeting closed door session in Texas that was co chaired by WalMart at the time. The biggest retailer bullets in the world in the biggest seller of rifles, and it was voted on by corporate members. And Alec legislators to make it a national model. That's how that Bill move. Forward was at the NRA's urging while Alec has a hounded the fact that it's not currently one of its models. Alec has done nothing to get those bills repealed across the country, the bills that it helped push into law, and that's the case with voter ID and other measures as well. And so you have a situation which Alec wants to distance itself from the pass without actually doing any repair of those measures. And then in the current context a number. Of the Alec legislators in the states have been accused of sexual harassment or sexual misconduct. Alec has been silent on those. I think Alec hides win it sees controversy. And does a lot of PR spin was regards to the NRA and the standard ground. How how do we know about this? What's what's the for that? Well, I went through and found open records material that we obtained we also went through historical records archives of lawmaker databases, and I've got the material to show exactly how that Bill moved through Florida. And how it was introduced at the Alec meeting that the NRA introduced it. And and also that WalMart co-chaired the meeting at the time. So there's ample documentation, you can find out more at Alec exposed. You can also find out materials through documented dot net and some of our reporting on the intercept dot com. She'll be before we keep Well, I I want to address the issues of sexual harassment as a woman as women who works in an organization ram by a female CEO. That's just quite disgusting. We are an organization we're not legislators parents. And if they did act in a ridiculous horrific way towards women or anybody else, they should be held accountable for that by their voters and their states and by their constituents, but to be a female into work under a female CEO that that's just the spectacle that she would say something like that, quite frankly, Tom wrote this quote about Alec from former Wisconsin governor Tommy Thompson, the quote is I always loved going to meetings because I always found new ideas. And then I take them back to Constan disguise them a little bit and declare that it's mine I'm interested in that quote show be particularly because there are a number of lawmakers who spoken very openly about how much they love. Alec Senator Rick Scott, who's Florida's former governor? Now, a Senator representing Florida had this to say about why he thinks Alec is important, and this is from YouTube video on Alex YouTube channel, I know that with less regulation. More more good things happen. We've been able to Florida to cut fifty four. I think it's fifty four or five. Eighty five hundred regulations and with with that we've had unbelievable prosperity now in DC, I'm gonna do my best to make sure that Washington's quits telling us what to do we should let her states make their own decisions. We need to have laboratories now, I wanna make sure Florida's the best laboratory, of course. But, you know, Alex, doing a great job and thanks for all your hard work to make sure that we keep state's rights, and we don't have continued federal government tried to take over all of our rights. That's florida. Senator Rick Scott who previously represented Florida as its governor. Shelby. What's your take on the appeal of Alec to lawmakers? Sure.

"The IRS engaged in zero lobbying while it basically pouted all the bills that it path. In fact, it bragged over and over that nearly twenty percent of its bills were enacted every single year on average, and it really was engaged in extensive lobbying to push those bills forward that really is its primary purpose to put those bills or to get them into law, and I would say on this question of the task forces in going the task force meetings versus the public portions, they broadcast just take a look at Dana Millbank, call him about his invitation to his tended task force. And what happened when he was blocked because Alec doesn't want the public to see or hear the corporations voting as equals with the lawmakers on. In fact, you know, it's quite clear, you can see it in state after state can look up almost any state newspaper and see how that Alec agenda moved in those states with very little notice in many instances, very few hearings and Bill moyers actually the great documentary on it called United States of Alec which really showcase I'm how little public input. There is into the agenda. Once it becomes a priority for these corporate. Nations and for Alec another documentary that touched on Alec was thirteenth the documentary by Eva Duvernois about the nature of America's prison systems for a lot of people. The first time they heard of Alec was after the incident with Trayvon Martin in Florida after he was killed by George Zimmerman the documentary thirteenth, which is on net. Flicks touched on this topic. Here is part of what was set in thirteenth tonight a deadly shooting in Sanford police have the gun they've got the shooter, but they have not arrested him. George Zimmerman armed with a gun. Follow this quote unquote suspicious kid after the dispatcher told him not to. They ended up on the ground in a fight and George Zimmerman's shot and killed Trayvon. The police could not arrest Zimmerman because of this Florida law called stand your ground, but says you can kill someone if you feel threatened even though it was Zimmerman who had pursued Martin throughout the neighborhood with a gun clip from the Eva do Vernay documentary thirteenth now to be clear. Stand your ground is not just a law in the state of Florida other states have similar standing around policies either in their state laws or even in their jury instructions. Shelby. What's the connection between Alec and stand your ground? Why did that become a priority for the organization? Well, it didn't become a priority for the organization as I explained before one of the ways that models are introduced as that lawmakers can introduce them and a Florida lawmaker introduced it. And it went through the Alec procedure and process since then this was in twenty twelve since then, you know, Alec has a new CEO we have new in different procedures. We don't even. Focus on those issues anymore. So we don't focus on guns. We don't focus on those type of issues. So yeah, we that went through the procedure that it went through. I completely understand. I'm a minority woman from an inner city. I completely understand how people feel and how they took that. And it also broke my heart personally was about stand your ground that time that became a model policy for Alec. What was it about that that the members kind of latched onto well before my time, but what I can surmise just from what we know from public policy in history around criminal Justice. You know, let's remember a lot of this tough on crime stuff was I can remember growing up in Detroit in the nineties on a lot of this was pushed by Bill Clinton, and Hillary Clinton and Democrats and Republicans the idea that you needed to be quote, unquote, tough on crime, and since then people have through research through engaging with different ideas through data. We've learned that that's not necessarily always the best Lucien, which is why different models and policies and research has. Been done, and you've been able to get to new bipartisan changes with our criminal Justice system. Like the first step back. I want to give Lisa chance to respond to that. In just a minute..

"The time. So I'll say right here right now, you should come to our next Alec beating thing it's in Austin in August at the end of the day, we are no different than so many other organizations nonprofits that have meetings, and conferences, and forums, and panels and work with business leaders and businesses all across the country. So I just I just don't see what the difference is there. But if you invited me Alex conference, I I'd go I mean. It'd be great. But I know that wherever I am in Austin is not where these private meetings will be because they're private. So there's the part that I see as a journalist. And I know there's also this other part that I won't see because I'm not allowed to to go because I'm not I'm not told. I mean, if there's something private that's the whole point of keeping it private is. So that I can't see it well, not necessarily. So like, I said we all have task forces and task force directors, and there's been quite a few meetings to where we've worked with members. And we said, hey, you know, we would love to have these people come in. So they can see what's going on and be part of the conversation. I would just encourage you to reach out early, and we can see what we can do with those particular meetings outside of that though, I do want to address this idea that things are rushed through at the state level. That's just wrong. So first of all, let's remember that all of these bills are always posted online as an individual you can register with different websites that will give you different models in different bills that are being introduced, and then you should be. Gaijin contact your lawmakers, and let them know how you feel about these things. So none of this is rush through. None of this is done under the cover of darkness. And quite frankly lot of the things that have been brought up have been from years ago. We're talking about twenty twelve and we're not talking about the future. And what we're doing right now on the great work that we are doing what about the point Lisa brought up in terms of Alec being classified as a nonprofit rather than as a lobbying organization. This would seem to be highly material to the conversation in terms of the amount of oversight of an organization where the money goes where it can come from and the amount of access. It's allowed to have to lawmakers. She'll be can you clarify? What is Alec? Is it a lobbying organization or it? So we are a C three. I'm sorry a five oh one C threes part of Moscow's governs, nonprofits, NPR's a five. Oh one. Exactly. Yeah. So we have Alec which is our safe three. And then we do have Alec action, which is our C four which again, so many other organizations also have you for example, Planned Parenthood as a seat three a four side as well. Multiple organizations. Nations do so yes, all of those of us on staff who are part of Alex staff, we are on the C three side. And then we also have a C four side that is run on the C four side. So we follow everything that we're supposed to follow. And we follow him play by the rules. We what about that? In terms of Alec being classified as a five. Oh, one C three. I mean, it occurs to me that a number of organizations are five threes that might surprise people another five, oh one C three that was ruled a five oh one C three in the same year as Alec in one thousand nine hundred eighty three was parts of the NFL. The NFL foundation is classified as a five. Oh, one C three. The national organization has some nonprofit protections that may seem odd to the public. But I wonder if that's Alex responsibility or responsibility in terms of the way, the group is regulated. Well, Alex has only recently added a thief for for the bulk of its history for decades, it operated as a theory, and it told.

"So they can tell you that they don't represent an extreme position. But in fact, they do in many, many instances, I hear you in terms of your concerns about industry and legislators working arm-in-arm to make policy policies that in your view are extreme I wonder how you see and we'll get more into this in a minute. But see the public involved in this. I mean, if even if Alec wrote a Bill verbatim that a lawmaker introduced and it became law. If it upset enough people, isn't it on us to vote that person out while you know, it's interesting that you would raise that because one of the things Alec did after the two thousand ten election was hold secret sessions with Alec legislators to help them implement. A new computer algorithms to change the districting in those states. And so what you've had in the past few years. The number of Alec legislators who have rewritten their own district lines to make themselves safer from public disapproval and more than willing to push this extreme agenda of Alec once. Alec makes it a standard or a national model for those legislators in many states, they just ram those bills right through the public citizens are left to the side. Why does Alec house so much sway with so many lawmakers? What it does is it provides for a steady stream of contact through these two or three meetings a year with these legislators, and these lobbyists where they're wined, and dined or schmooze and booze at Alec meetings, and many instances, those lobbyists are their main stay campaign contributors to max out in their state limits for those elected representatives, the packs of some of those corporations are there mainstays for their fundraising. And so it creates a long term relationship but helps build and solidify those relationships for these. Alec meetings or in essence vacations, where these lawmakers are hanging out with these lobbyists and building those relationships in ways that are different than in the state where they might have restrictions or disclosures that Alec basically says don't apply because it claims it does no lobbying, and it's not a lobbying organization. Shelby. It sounds like Lisa expressing concerns that this is ultimately just about money, but this is corporations that find lawmakers that they can influence to get what they want and the benefit is through campaign contributions or donations down the line, or maybe even in the shorter term, and that feeds a desire, or or gives more reason to do some of Alex business in public, but some of it in private where the public doesn't really have enough knowledge of what's going on well start. So there's a a lot to digest there. But I I'll say it seems like the criticism is that I guess people have a problem with business being part of the public discussion and within the public square, and I think that's pretty sad. Well, I think. The problem was with people not knowing how much business is part of the public discussion with with that point though. That's also just doesn't make much sense to to dole those of us within the organization. So like, I said before one all of our meetings are publicly posted on our website. You can go and you can buy a ticket. You can register we invite media all.

"Finally, your genius shall be recognized. This is one A. I'm Joshua Johnson. Dan, tweeted, private sector representatives should not have a seat at the table. Able when determining public policy Shelby would react today. So first and foremost, of course, they should private companies are just as much part of our everyday communities as public officials, if not more I can't think of someone else more better to talk about what's facing businesses. What they need. What struggles they're having? What could be done better someone who's been in government their entire life? As a lawmaker for forty fifty years doesn't understand the modern times like a business person does. But let's also remember your federal government, the actual people that are passing laws in the state level the same time, they're also meeting with private sector members every day, the people that pass the Affordable Care Act met with the health care industry every single day, and they should because the whole point is people in government don't necessarily have the answers to everything when you bring together diverse ideas and different perspectives. You get to the best solution. Alec draw the line though, Shelby in terms of the appropriate place for the private sector in that conversation. I hear what you're saying. I mean, if if you are sitting law or regulation that. Ex- businesses, you know, their their businesses including small businesses. You might say, hey, here's something you might want to consider where is the line as Alex sees it between the proper place of businesses of the private sector in setting policy and overreach where is that zone. So within our organization internally within our procedures, it's the public sector members that introduced the legislation within obviously, the formal preceding if a Bill is then introduced then each state operates with its own levels of transparency, so states all over the country, for example, have ethics laws and reporting for different lobbyists. The same thing that happens at the federal level. So there's already laws around things like campaign, finance and all those great things, but within the organization, private and public sectors come together. But it's the public sector members that actually introduced the policy Lisa, how do you see it? Well, what we know is that the corporations vote as equals with the politicians in those Alec passwords meetings. And we know that. In many instances, those bills come out of Alec and they're introduced in state houses and rush through with very little input from the actual citizens of that state. We saw that time and time again after the two thousand ten elections when Alec majorities took over different state houses, and you saw that with the bills attacking the rights of labor unions and more changes to rules for torts where basically the legislators went back charged with this legislation that the corporations wanted pursued, and they pushed them through often with little notice if any notice and very few hearings Alec caters to the climate change denial machine. Basically, it has elevated the positions of the heartland institute. That's the group that basically created people who believe that climate change is happening with the unit bomber that's impart. How it lost Exxon is a member last year over the efforts to basically change the rules for regulating carbon in this country and part of how Hartland loss. Exxon is a member last year. That's how Alec Alec loss. Exxon as a member of this past year, and then this past summer Alec featured David Hurwitz in not one, but two panels Horowitz's infamous for a basically saying that Obama is a secret Muslim and other really hateful claims and after that Berezin left Alec along with a number of other corporations..

"Let me get a little more basic information from you Shelby. You mentioned that your members are public sector private sector. And nonprofits was it. Yes. Who who are some of the private sector members? We just have tons of different organizations and companies all over the all over the spectrum so anywhere from communications to education fields to environment to everything. So it the whole point is to bring together people from all over the spectrum because of course, public and. Private individuals. Are what make our system work until we bring them all together. Give us a sense of the state lawmakers who are members of ally. Are there any like requirements for joining or can any state lawmaker join or how does how does the lawmaker become a member of Alex short? So Alec is open to all state, lawmakers were nonpartisan were open to Democrats and Republicans. We have Republicans we have Democrats, and it's very similar almost like the national council. State state'll legislators, it's you bring lawmakers together, and it's just open to all state officials. So what is your sense Lisa of the public awareness? The public perception of Alex is this a group that gets a lot of attention. Or would you guess that most people are not really aware of it? I think that Alec has increased its notoriety over the years and part of the extreme policies that it has pushed, but also it's been profiled in number of documentaries because of the damage that it has done to public policy in the states and nationally. And so I think there's a greater awareness of Alec than when. I helped launch Alec exposed about eight years ago. The presentation of Alec has this body of lawmakers really overlooks the portions of Alex that aren't broadcasts of the public where the press is kept out, for example in those task force meetings. We know from open records requests that corporations corporate lobbyists vote as equals with lawmakers on those bills before they become Alec models approved by that task force in many instances, those bills actually originate from corporate lobbyists. Although Alec has in recent years take into removing the logo branding that used to be on those bills. You know, what you see in recent years is a sort of polished PR campaign to try to present Alec in a different light in reality. What Alec does is give you know, sort of one stop shopping for corporate lobbyists and special interest groups to vote on bills that they want in. So it really is a corporate lobbying operation operation before she'll be chance to to respond. Can I just clarify from you Lisa when you're taught? Talking about extreme policies. What are you referring to? Specifically, can you give me an example? Well, interestingly one of the recent efforts of allocates to repeal the direct election of senators that the new piece, but Alec has a lot of bills that are pretty extreme. Alec for many years was pushing the NRA's position on guns to repeal repeal the assault weapons ban and more Alec has a long history of other measures that are very damaging to the public. They are the ones who really lifted up to the voter ID restrictions after the two thousand eight elections to make it harder for Americans to vote on an Alec was the real force in the states in privatizing our prison system where most prisoners go through the state criminal Justice system. All right. She'll be let me give you chance to respond. Sure, will I I just want to say, I think it's pretty unfortunate that you would use words like extreme to describe an organization that's committed to limited government, free markets and federalism.
