"Because i know you gotta run. You had taken some heat earlier for saying that as a member of congress we you know we all vote alone. People took that to me. Well why not. Some strategic block voting. What's your attitude toward. Strategic block voting at this point that the thing people heard what they wanted to hear. They already had a particular thing that they felt about us in so they only heard what they wanted to hear with that. They totally misunderstood what i said. The point is we can block vote. Yes but at the end of the day even with even with a block. Vote my name when you pull up. Corey bush. the record is mine. If you pull up speaker pelosi that record is hers. You pull up someone else. That record is there's that is the point that no matter how you vote my community. They don't care about what the next person voted by. The district voted. You in cares about how you voted and so whether it be vote is a block or whether we vote separately and and so yes we can and we have. We have done that and the people that are have listened to this and don't understand that is baffling to me. Because you want in your district the things that are specific to your district you want your representatives to care about those things but the district. Another district may matt have those issues as number one number two. So that is the point in some districts. The issue there may be water. Maybe the issue may be the number one issue in that community but in another district it could be gun violence another inch another district. It's wildfires another so we have to understand that. So do we. Do we say my community. I'm not going to. I don't care about the wildfires happening in my community. Because i wanna vote like everybody else you know but but your district is like but we needed this thing. You didn't speak up for us. So that is that is the point of that at the end of the day. My record does not show. It doesn't say corey. Bush and then alexandro cossio corte's her boats are mixed in there. This is okay.

Let's talk about that from Jesse small thing that was odd thing. Have you ever see your you teach law? Yeah. Have you ever seen a deal cut like that? Where you had, you know, seriously, the entire police department on that press press conference ridiculous just showing his face. And then suddenly it's just gone to cut a deal. What was that all about? It happens all the time at banana Republic. Yeah. In corrupt government. You know? That's what's happened. Jussie smollet case went from a celebrity facing criminal charges to a full blown political corruption scandal that leads to be Obama. Why he's done in the you know, they wrote them out of empire. They're very likely to fire him. He's not getting any work. He's trying to get appearances on television. Nobody wants him to appear because they all know that he liar. And and the fact is he's been sued. Now, they actually filed the suit city of Chicago. They have an ordinance or because he didn't pay the hundred and thirty thousand dollars it cost them to do this investigation. They can soup or three times that three hundred ninety thousand cloth collect turning squeeze costs bell goal for half a million. Plus, he's gotta pay. Mark Garrett goes which will cost them another five hundred thousand so he's going to be out of million there and the federal investigating him. The postal inspector in the FBI over that fake anthrax letter that was sent to the set. He said it may have evidence which reports indicate he has much bigger problem on his hands and even those Illinois crime. So he's done. He's he just starting to get simmered. Why would he not? It it just seems like you know, when you're caught red handed like that. I mean, it's I mean, nothing good can come. I guess I guess now did empire. He's on empire. Right. That was is he still out are they do they this'll bring ratings. I mean if he's back on people wash, right? They wrote him out of the final episodes of this season and they have yet to renew. But the word is that they're going to renew empire. But that the executives are waiting to see what happens, but they're leaning towards essentially. Yeah. Okay. So he showed up on the set. And it was a coffin seen is like who's in. It's me. Well, they're yeah. They're going to go into vampire vampire episode is babe and discussed the idea of keeping his character and bringing a different actor. So I I think they're going to write them out of it. That's my theory. Who do they do that with? They did that with the Partridge. Boy, did they. Yeah. No. Got him down, by the way. The writers of empire like all the writers in Hollywood have fired their agents all fifteen thousand members of the writers guild have gotten rid of their agents because about I dispute that's come in. This has never happened in Hollywood writers. I Asian a major war going on in Hollywood right now. What's the beef? Well, it's a big beef. It has to do with the fact that the agencies instead of whoring about representing their clients taking their commissions. They're getting involved in so-called packaging peas, and they're becoming producers themselves they tremendous conflicts of interest and the writer say get rid of those conflicts. And the agency say, hey, we're we're going to go public. We're making so much money with the conflicts. We're not getting rid of them. And that's what it's all about. Boy, I've got it before I got to bring up a oh see who is an economic illiterates. I mean, I mean, I think that's the best way. I could describe Alexandra Kaci Cortez what she says that the end is coming talking about the end of the earth at the end of a political party because ended. Ended. AC refers to the end of the earth, the political parties coming more imminently that and she's classic millennial who apparently did extra credit in self esteem courses, and that's all she thinks. So highly oversell, but the Democrats have a real problem their hands a story emerged that she there's a group of seventy House, Democrats, whatever AFC says they vote for whatever she proposes they both for and Pelosi can't control Caccio Cortez. Of blockheads. So so at the end, though, do you think I mean, you think everyone will eventually recognize intellectual shortcomings as she continues to spew progressive jargon, because you know, hurt this meteoric rise, you know, is certainly is going to burn out at some points followers, which women, you know, her her ideas will fizzle into this trash heap of history along with, you know, the socialist government of Venezuela. I mean at some point somebody's going to BUSTER. I mean some. So. Already happening. You look at the polls and her her numbers are headed downward there roading in it's because of as you point out that her ideas or bankrupt in many cases, wrong, Andy. In addition.

And I know you got one of the most exciting weeks coming up with the March madness getting ready to kick off. But before you do anything, I want you to be sure and introduce yourself because you got so many different titles. And you got so many different things going on nowadays. Let the audience know all about Mr. Wayne Allyn root. Although I know they already know you try and keep it simple. National TV. New book called Trump rules. Come a winner. Like, Donald Trump. That's coming out. July sixteenth nothing to do with politics. Everything to do with the principles and habits of Trump's liked your life. So look for that. What as well?

So that's kind of the main the main calling in my websites root for America dot com. That's what else starts. Yeah. Good. Okay. Well, what do you think? What's the biggest thing that you wanna talk about? Because I attended not to me. I think it's still the biggest story an event the other night, Wayne with Steve Bannon and sheriff David Clarke, and the we build the wall group in a bunch of the angel families were there talk to a big really a packed house about is it an emergency. What's going on down in the border, and these rhinos had voted against Trump and Trump vetoed? Everything. What's your take on all this? Well. Come on Sundays. I actually I'm Thursdays and Sundays but Tamara Sunday. Collina's out and one of you know, Mohammed Ali when say it ain't back it up, and I get a little bit because I'm the guy who came up with the idea to declare the emergency. Wrote about McCollum back in November that Trump should declare national security emergency gore congress go above their head. They're never going to give them the money. Anyway. And just grabbed the money for the military. Every every president has gone exactly that they declared national emergency. And none of the four really big emergencies. They declare crisis and they work, right? Really? Exellency what's across the borders faster. So I make sure that one of my buddies who was that with trumpet, log on the weekends. My call him back in November matter of fact. Came out and. Breast-pockets that I promise you tonight. I love everything right? And next thing. You know, he starts talking many national security emergency within days. So this really is by you know, now that he's vetoed congress. I is on the verge of becoming a reality. And I do take credit for because it was my baby. And I you know, the goal wasn't. I'm not gonna make any money off it Richardson, this I'm taking credit because I want to save America from my cures. And I think there's gonna save America. I don't think America can be saved unless a Wallis Bill can unless you secure the border. So that was number one. And number two is some very proud of the fact that I wrote a column about two months ago, and it said, and then I sent it to the White House that I made sure that everyone around Trump six people at the White House and said, please fans. Because Democrats than all day long calling us climate change deniers. Oh, yeah. Yeah. In the tables on them and call them border crisis deniers, and I gave it to too much. Go never heard another word about it. And then I'm not Thursday and Friday of this week. He tweeted out the Democrats are border deniers. Believe me, I know where. That was a direct link growth. And I and I sit there dying that there's a rape crisis. All the women have come up the border and rates through Mexico. He's a child sex trafficking crisis. It's a drug trafficking crisis democratic denying. There's a murder crisis could come up the border wind up murdering Americanised nine is a welfare crisis. There's a national crisis. There's a drug trafficking crisis. I mean, I lifted searching. Liberal one liberal stuck all day long gave about the environment. Yeah. What do you think? When you Ciller country.

Be more garbage to be more truck needles on the ground more people like Francisco pooping appeal on the grounds. It's an environmental disaster where people heal our country, you know, and they love it. They were six hundred nine hundred million in our country. So we could get air like China. It's ironic. It's just crisis after crisis is brought to us by the door border. I knew I forgot one disease crisis. Disease. I mean, there really are. Crises coming coming up. That's thirteen beggar crisis. And so. Deny that number one is a border crisis. Denier a number two. I don't remember if I said this on your show. Mccollum? There's no. Credit put off by the Mexican drug cartels. Yup. There's no question. Nobody could deny all the things. I just said with a strengthened some lecture being paid millions and millions of hundreds of millions of the Swiss Bank account.

Four hundred ninety nine dollars donations by the tens of thousands. That's really drug money guy's donations funding democratic states. Why not you don't want? What was the biggest finish this week? Was it the college scandal college bribery scandal? Well, that was big. I mean that shows about how these Democrats they're cheating lying to do anything to enhance them. But they could give a damn about. Everybody else gets cheated out of you know, spots in colleges are on sprite. Cetera. Yeah.

Discussing people and they got one hundred million dollars, and they drive judges and they bribe policemen and they drive sheriff's make politicians, and then if you don't go along with it, they kill you. Yeah. They would never hesitate to Bryant Democratic Party. But here in the college bribery scandal people are murderers if that people receive people like Lori mcglasson for full house, right? What are you laughing house? House. More than just, you know, movies, and they were willing to blind people a million dollars to get there. So why would anybody doubt that Democrats are changing bribes Mexican drug cartel? Lori laflin is willing to give up and is willing to give broad really believe a billionaire.

"Today Cam Edwards sitting in for Tony cats next hour, we're going to talk with Jim Geraghty of national review about. The week for the Democratic Party. So this began on Monday where we saw word that there's any resolution that was going to condemn Representative you on a Mars anti semitic comments. And then the progressive wing of the Democratic Party started pushing back since about anti-semitism, you can eight Israel and not Jewish people. She just hates the state of Israel. And that's all it is. And then you know, representive Omar keeps dropping these oblique comments. So now, apparently there's gonna be a vote in the house on a resolution. Condemning hatred and bigotry of of all kinds. This will not be specifically about Representative, Omar. Pelosi said that there'd be one resolution addressing these forms of hatred not mentioning her name Omar's name because it's not about her. It was as of Monday. So which means Nancy Pelosi says, I do not believe that she understood the full weight of the words that she used. Thirty seven years old. She's a member of congress. It's so nice. The speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi now making excuses. For what Representative Omar has said. So we're gonna talk about this with Jim Geraghty of national review coming up next hour. But right now, we're talking about woke Hollywood, and whether or not you're sick of it. Eight three three got Tony is the number to call. I just saw on Twitter a few minutes ago. A tweet from STAN Lee. By the way is dead. You know, he passed away not long ago, but apparently is Twitter account is still active because STAN Lee at the real Stanley on Twitter last night, captain marvel landed in Hollywood this past money for the movie's premiere read more about the evening below. So now, apparently, even you know, it's the Walking Dead. I guess you're welcome AMC. You can have that one for free even even the dead in Hollywood have to get on board with the woke nece eight three three got Tony is the number to call. I would love to hear from you. Are you just are you bored with this? Are you tired of it? Are you sick of it? I'd love to hear from you. Any other thoughts you might have as well. Happy to hear from you. As a matter of fact, let's say we got a random question here from Chuck, Colin. And let's let's hear from Chuck Chuck how you doing. I'm doing fine and taking taking my call. I've actually tried to figure this out myself, and I've not been able to if I may let me know I'm leaving was February fifteenth. The Democrats got together with all the attorney general's across country and found sixteen states wanted to file suit against President Trump, and is emergency order since February fifteenth, I've not heard response, and I know when he declared a Muslim ban or a ban on certain countries that had a majority of Muslims in them. Let's be politically correct error with what I say it took a couple of days before an emergency injunction was placed by one of them liberal judges out there in the night circuit. Why have we not heard anything from the night circuit in regards to this? And is no news a good sign and good news for us. Trump Trump supporters and thanks for taking my call. Absolutely chuck. I appreciate you calling in here. So I I'm not an attorney, and I haven't been following this as you incredibly closely by. I I suspect that one of the things that's going on here is that while the national emergency has been declared. You've not seen a of funds you've not seen the border construction begin in some of these areas where right now there is no wall or no fence. And so there might not be anything to actually stop at this point. It can also take a little bit of time. Even when you've got a huge issue for the courts to react. Cover the second minute on a daily basis. And so I remember in California. Last year. There was a law that would have been passed by the legislature. Months have gone by and the day before it went into effect. It was a ban on a magazine magazines with a capacity of greater than ten rounds. The day before that law went into effect. A federal judge granted a temporary injunction and blocked that law from moving forward. So you also have typically when a lawsuit has been filed the the other side in this case, the US government has thirty days to respond to that initial complaint. And so it may be that we are within that. So within that thirty day window. We haven't seen the formal response from the coming from these elicited general, I believe. And and I suspect that this is going to play out in the courts albeit in a a little bit slower of a fashion just because of. How slow the allocation of funds and the construction. My you know, my last so keep your eyes on it. And if you don't see anything in another couple of weeks, you're right. I mean, looking here just a couple of news stories, and there's. You're right. There's there's not a lot. There's a story from earlier today families began legal fight to protect homes and property from border wall. But this is again part of the lawsuit brought by Public Citizen back on February fifteenth on behalf of two families the Alvarez family in the guitar in family, but they say judge Trevor McFadden has yet to set a court date on the request for an injunction against the national emergency declaration. So if that's the primary lawsuit that we're talking about. And I don't know that it is because that again was filed on behalf of two citizens. Not the lawsuit filed on behalf of, you know, sixteen attorneys general. But again two weeks ago, and you've got a judge said, yeah, we'll we'll we'll we'll get to a hearing at some point in time. It will happen. Sometimes the wheels of Justice grind a little slowly Chuck, and they they they don't work as fast as you might think. So present the phone call eight three three get Tony is the number to call again next hour going to be talking about what's going on in the house today. What what may be going on in the house today? I don't know that they're actually going to have a vote on anything we've seen over the course of this week. It was Monday was going to be a resolution condemning Representative Yuan, Omar for her anti semitic comments. And then it became well. We're going to maybe just talk about anti semitism in general. And then it was we're not going to have a vote after all. And now, it's we're going to have a vote, and and we're gonna we're gonna condemn hatred and bigotry, and we're not gonna call Representative hallmark is now Nancy Pelosi says the management. I she just she just doesn't understand the the weight of her words as a member of congress. I am. I'm not on board with that. I'm really not. Because if you go back, and you look at the history of Representative, Omar. She's making similar comments when she was a state legislator in Minnesota. As a matter of fact, there are a number of Jewish groups who spoke to and met with represented, Omar. When she was a state lawmaker Minnesota, and they told her, you know, if you're really not anti semitic, and this is really just all about foreign policy. Maybe you shouldn't say things like, you know, dual loyalties and. And this is continued right? As a matter of fact, some of those folks from Minnesota who talked to her as she was a state lawmaker had been quoted the same. You know, we're we're really disappointed here because. She did supposedly get the message several years ago. And this is now continuing. An ANSI Pelosi. Look, she's she's in a tough place politically right now, she is the titular leader of the Democratic Party. She is the highest ranking democrat in the country. She's a speaker of the house. I don't think anybody really sees her as the leader of the Democratic Party though. That's that's part of a problem. Because right now, there is no one leader of the Democratic Party. This is why we have roughly two hundred and forty-two Democrats who are running for president right now. Because there's a leadership vacuum. When Nancy Pelosi was elected speaker of the house back in January. She had to fend off a little bit of a intraparty fight from the left. There were members of the progressive wing of the Democratic Party freshman, congress critters who had said that Nancy Pelosi's she didn't say, this is somebody words, but it was it was basically Nancy Pelosi is old expiration date. In terms of our politics has come and gone. We need new blood. We need fresh faces and we're not committed to voting for Nancy Pelosi. Ultimately, most of them in line. And as you Pelosi felt like all right now, I got my leadership role intact. I can leave the house and since then she has continued to have to deal with these recalcitrant members of congress on both sides, by the way on her left flank and on her right on the left lane. You've got people like Alexander euro Cossio Cortez. You've got you've got a Representative to leave out of Michigan on the right? You've got a number of these first time lawmakers freshman, congress critters like Abigail span burger in Virginia. Who was elected not as a fire-breathing socialist? But span burger actually was elected in Dave brats district. Dave brat who had a tea party challenged in a primary. Eric cantor out of office a few years ago, and I know this district. Well, this is not this isn't Berkeley on the east coast. This is not a a congressional district that resembles a deep blue neighborhood in New York City and Abigail Bamberger did not run as a democratic socialist. In fact, she ran a very nonpartisan campaign as somebody who would go to Washington work for everybody. Listen to both sides that was the campaign that you're now listen. There were some positions. I think that she took even during the campaign that demonstrated wasn't going to be the case. But she doesn't want to vote on time with Alexandria, Cossio Cortez because she wants to get reelected. And so we've seen on several occasions already in this house in this new session. Republicans have offered up what's called a motion to recommit, and it's basically an amendment attached to legislation and their amendments that are designed to be hard questions for Democrats to answer in HR eight which was the quote, unquote, universal background check Bill the past last week. There was an amendment was offered that said, okay. When an illegal immigrant tries to buy a gun. Ice needs to be notified of that. Now, you might well. Yeah. This is all about, you know, public safety. Make sure that people who can't get a gun shouldn't have gone. Okay. That makes sense. The progressive wing of the immigration party said no we want to defunding. We don't want is to have any knowledge of what illegal immigrants are doing in this country. And then you had a number of. Quote, unquote, moderate Democrats release Democrats elected from red districts districts that went for President Trump and twenty sixteen they they said, yes, they joined Republicans in voting for this particular amendment and Alexandra Kaci Cortez blasted those fellow Democrats. There is a closed door caucus meeting that apparently got very very contentious. And here's Nancy Pelosi trying to hold together a divided party. They took back power not not on the backs of people like Alexandria Cortez. Who again comes from a district is like eighty percent democrat. Nancy Pelosi is the speaker of the house because of freshmen Democrats like Abigail span Berger who ran.

"People that belong to call generation Z. These are people born in nineteen ninety seven to two thousand twelve. They'll be ages seven to twenty nine twenty two this year. They find that that generation is even more left wing than the millennial generation and those are the ones born between nineteen eighty one and nineteen Ninety-six. You name the issue whether it's President Trump's job performance, whether it's climate change. Whether it's approving the NFL nealer. Overwhelmingly left wing. And they want more and more government in two thousand fourteen Pew Research found that the millennial generation fifty three percent want bigger government with more services. They were the only generation with a majority supporting a bigger government. Noah's in the latest pew survey. Sixty four percent of millennials said, they believe government should do more to solve problems. But seventy percent. Of generation Z said government should do more to solve problems. So this green new deal that Alexandria, Cossio Cortez pushing and that many of the Democrats who are running for president have already embraced. This is exactly consistent with what that generation once. Because of the indoctrination of what I call the axis of indoctrination, Hollywood, academia media. They believe government. You come to the rescue. That an unlevel. Playing field is unjust and needs to be rectified through government. Healthcare is a right child care is a right. College tuition ought to be free. Climate change is the biggest existential threat facing us night. Islamo-fascism? This is what this generation has been taught in every day that young generation inches towards being able to vote in the ain't going to pull the lever for Republicans. This is scary. It really is.

Once referred to as the most anti negro law on the statute books close quote because before the minimum wage laws, and before they raised them enough for them to matter a black teenager with more likely to have a job in virtually any buddy else in this country including white teenagers. We can't even explain to people. How would you artificially increase the cost of something you're going to lower the demand for it? Including labor. You can't even win that argument. You can't even win the argument that healthcare is nowhere in the constitution as a right? Here you have Kamla Harris. Who went to law school? Who says healthcare is not just a privilege for the wealthy. It is a right now tonight. But now, my view is minority view. At one time, my view majority view if he would've thought people like Alexandra Kaci Cortez. Was smoking something. Now, let's get back to the Michael Cohen hearing and before going further I want to apologize to each member to US Congress as a whole. The last time I appeared before congress I came to protect Mr. Trump today. I'm here to tell the truth about Mr. Trump. I lied to congress. But Mr. Trump stop negotiating the Moscow tower project in Russia. I stayed that. We stop negotiating in January of twenty sixteen. That was false our negotiations continued for months later during the campaign. Mr. Trump did not directly tell me to lie to congress. That's not how he operates. Then explains why you decided to turn against Trump. You state the bad things that you did from Mr. Trump and at some point. Your parents changed? Your course of action is a recurring refrain and your testimony that says and yet I continued to work for him. But.

Jeff, I think let me take it a little broader because I think this is an issue as we put the house, but HR one our first Bill a Bill about campaign finance at the election reform, and there's some language in there right now that applies to foreign governments and some of us would like stronger language, even if possible they'll be bills introduced I I do think that that's a real issue. We have to be looking at it. I don't know right now there's a place that it's being funneled other than we saw. For example, the influence of groups like the NRA so group that traditionally would think would be out there for the gun manufacturers. Like they've always been out. Of course, not gun owners gun manufacturers defined out dad have been infiltrated by representatives of foreign government. So I think the media and members of congress committees are looking at this. I think a lot of us would like to see more legislation introduced in this area. And I think you bring up a very fair criticism and concern pag in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, you're on the air with congressman. Cocaine. Hi, guys, thanks for taking my call. I I listened to a lot of progressive radio. And I think hearing a lot of pushback about the progressive caucus being joined by the blue dogs, and that Pelosi kind of put people on committees that were on the more conservative side. Could you speak to that place? Yeah. Thanks for asking that what I have found is there are certain elements social media, especially that really thrive by failure. And they don't ever want to ever think something good can happen. You know? And then you get used to get sick skin. When you're in my job. But you got people who think that everyone's a corporate shell and that, you know, the system is terrible. And there's many good things that happen specifically to what you said personnel. There's no merging with blue dog. And CBC whereabout is our part the democratic spectrum as possible. In fact, just recently when they were committee assignments given out we had Jaipur where the co chairs of the progressive caucus got a commitment from leader plsy that in the same proportion. We are in the caucus which is forty percent. We would get exclusive committee and lo and behold, I think we were at fifty four percent for ways and means thirty forty percent for preparations. And I think it was thirty one or thirty two on. Energy and commerce, and to be perfectly honest. We only had one digital name that didn't make it on that committee. We probably wouldn't have got there with the people who wanted to be on anyway. But overall that's over forty percent. We just got on financial services another one that we're fighting for people like Alexandra Kaci Cortez and receded leave and I on a Presley and Katie porter and a bunch of other really impressive progressives. We're going to have a good number there. So there are some who think that, you know, you're only pure enough. There's like one or two pure people in congress, and you know, fine. If that's what they wanna think I got a big caucus in our all ninety five of our members in step on everything. No. But the vast majority of our caucus is very progressive. They're they're the ones who advanced issues like Medicare for all fifty dollar minimum wage a lot of other standards. But there is a clear amount of misinformation out there, especially on social media. I've learned to kind of roll with it. It's a little difficult. Although I do have to admit it is at times it it does. Dampen the spirit, would you see some of the chatter that's out there, especially when it's so blatantly wrong. And fortunately, some people just want to hear what's wrong rather than the truth. One of the things I've noticed there's an awful lot of people who are re tweeting that kind of stuff have like.

No, Russia, right? Mitch McConnell has decided to place his spine the same place that they kept Paul Ryan for the last two years and not stand up to the president seems to not be willing to take any Bill that we send over reopen the government. Let's the president says he's going to accept it. So you know, him being up in twenty twenty. I think he's worried about a primary, but certainly not going to get any profile in courage award. So you're you're not wrong on that front. As far as NATO. I think there are plenty of Republicans that would not support that move. I think it's a lot of the president's ill-informed bravado on some of these issues. I don't expect that to be a reality. And I think you would get your menace pushback from his own party. Jeff and fort dodge, Iowa, you're on the air with Carson Fokin. Hi, tom. Hi, congressman. Yesterday. There was a vote on sanctions on Darrow, pasta and history.
