The Golden Globes could do whatever the hell Yeah, he said that they're not going to air the Golden Globes next year. And this is all because of the controversy that started a couple months ago from basically in L.

I've told you that they would come that speaking the English language with a certain degree of literacy would be considered racist. When you consider rap artist who speak fifty words of English and make fifty million a year. Now, the as saying highest standards are unfair to minorities. Okay. Very good. So now, the border belts down the language meltdown the culture melts down, and you still don't see the light. Do you? Swedish liberalism is struggling under the weight of immigration. No kidding, meaning bringing in Syrian terrorists into Sweden and the Swedes who are so pacifist.

Apparently, there's a lot of Americans who think that their anxiety is unique unique enough to be Medicated and they're on anti anxiety drugs, like valium Xanax and boost Perron boosts Pearl. Never heard of that one. A sudden shortage of one of the safest anti anxiety drugs on the market has spread along people who rely on the medication boosts Perron to get through the day without debilitating, anxiety and panic attacks. Can I tell you that anxiety and panic attacks on the norm for most people living in New York? That's the norm your medicating. What's the normal state of mind in big cities is is exciting. Paddock.

I would say that this bust offensive Neil six hundred and fifty pounds of meth and Fangio combine, but it's a good start. But I don't think it's going to stop anything. I mean Hollywood can't run without Fenton hill, and such you think Hollywood could run without methamphetamine offensive. Isn't that why these movies are like they are? Howard Schultz freaked out by democratic backlash to independent presidential run. Rethinks effort guy, actually sounds centrist. So they ripped his head off because he's not as insane as occasional cortex. Well, there's a lot of other stories out here. If you care to comment on the insanity of the democrat party, if you're a democrat who has left the party, and you feel left out and picked upon the phone number's eight five five four hundred seven two eight two if you to say to me in a cypher all this crap is garbage. What really is important to you savage in terms of news. It's clear it's clear that the Neo cons got control of Donald Trump. The Baltin school of warmongering is now running the White House foreign policy. They're letting him play around with the wall. You'll see they'll let him have a little fun with Lynn stuff like that. But the big boys surrounding Trump one or with Russia, not a real war. I don't mean with thorough nuclear exchange or anything like that the Bolton wouldn't like that. Because then you wouldn't have any serfs boss around an arrest. No mild nuclear exchange, maybe sinking of a ship the downing of one of our planes, maybe killing about a thousand of our man with a small nuclear exchange. A little battlefield note know that would make little and feel bigger and all of his Neo friends and the radio television business who are not happy unless there's blood running out of their mouths. So that to me is the biggest story which is Bolton and the Neocons have seizing power around Donald Trump. You might say, it's the it's the deep state. You might say it's the democrat party you'd be right? You could add in the Republicans will also make money off the deal. The big deal is the nuclear treaty with Russia being torn up by Donald Trump because as far as I'm concerned, it's gonna start a bigger arm race. And also Dr Russia into the arms of the real terrorists nations on earth, the real ones. So why all of a sudden is Russia? Our enemy. Well, you can thank democrat party for demonizing. Putin Hillary Clinton for calling Putin Hitler.

"And then finally, Ford named it, win the latest version of her story. She named the three men and the one girl at that party. All of the three men deny it, no recollection or categorically deny it. And the girl that she names, her friend says that she has never ever met Brett Kevin. So anyway. Who could corroborate says it didn't happen including the girlfriend, including the girl who was there says not only was brick on not there. I have never met him. So no evidence whatsoever falls apart is Christine. Ford Fordline maybe issue mistaken, maybe issue, total lunatic. Maybe I just don't know. I don't know. Her testimony was a little weird. She wasn't dancing on the table or anything, but we can. We can deuce from all of that testimony that she's not credible cavenaugh however, performed very well just give you in case you missed it. I'll give you a little taste of his opening statement. I have been a good judge and for this nomination, another f. b. i. background investigation another American Bar Association vestige thirty one hours of hearings sixty five Senator meetings, twelve hundred written questions more than all previous supreme court nominees combined. Throughout that entire time throughout my fifty three years and seven months on this earth until last week. No one ever accused me of any kind of sexual misconduct. No one ever a lifetime, a lifetime of public service and a lifetime of high profile, public service at the highest levels of American government in never a hint of anything of this kind. And that's because nothing of this kind ever happens pre powerful stuff now. So he obviously denies it. He gives some evidence. He says, I've never been accused of favor in my life until five seconds. When I was threatening Democrats. But listen to what he tells you says, I have gone through more than all of the previous supreme court. Nominees combined testimony investigations this. This tells you something about the government breaking down about the process breaking down and it's not Republicans who were doing. It's not Republicans who use the nuclear option on judicial nominees. It was Democrats. It was Harry Reid. He started this, the Republicans are not to blame for this. The Democrats are to blame it. It's despicable and it's disgusting, and it's bad for the government because just wait. Oh, just wait until the Democrats get a judicial nominee up. I want Republicans to destroy that person. I want them to destroy them, ruin them, wreck them, humiliate them and torture them, not because I think that's a good thing to do to the judicial nominee. I don't know anything about the judicial nominee, but because the Republicans cannot unilaterally disarm, we can't. It is awful to the process. It's unfair. It's immoral to the people who go up for this for people who have Judy. Nominations or any other appointments or nominations, it's unfair to so debase our process. This white Democrats are going to keep on doing because they have no moral feeling whatsoever. Certainly those people on the judicial on the judiciary committee, and so we should not unilaterally disarm. We should give them a taste of their own medicine. Republicans take the high road. They tried to take the high road. I get it. I, I like that. But the process of politics is pretty ugly, and you have to get your hands a little bit dirty. If you're going to do it, they should rec. The next person give the Democrats a taste of their own medicine because it's despicable what they did him cavenaugh then won the audience over when he mentioned one part where he got choked up..

"There are a lot of winners today, actually. And the chance for bread Kavanagh st- potential supreme court Justice to be the ultimate winner. Is there on the table as well? But there are some winners today. There are even some pleasant surprises objective. People would tell you again, those you with pitchforks conspiracy theories. Hopeless anyway, so. It's it's a pretty healthy afternoon. Overall with a lot of people having a good day that you had I think who's having a good day would be lawyers of the world and the law in general the American Bar Association today early this morning came out. This is the very American Bar Association that Brad Kavanagh referenced in his recommendations during the confirmation hearings yesterday, the American Bar Association says for the rule of law you need to step back slow the process and have an FBI investigation before you go any further the Yale Law School the dean of the Yale Law School of which Brad Kavanagh referenced at least four or five times yesterday. Best law school in the country where he is also a lecturer came out today and said in joining the American Bar Association says the Senate Judiciary committee needs to suspend its consideration until an FBI investigation is completed into multiple sexual assault allegations, the head of the Yale Law School of which Br cavenaugh referenced several times yesterday said, quote, I joined the American Bar Association in calling for an additional investigation into allegations made against judge cavenaugh preceding with the confirmation process without further investigation is not in the best interest of the court, or our legal profession. So then, you know, suddenly got a good afternoon. That was Donald Trump. He had a great afternoon. Trump sounded great today had his again, many of you in a conspiracy theories and pitchforks and things like that. And everything is black and white. You may disagree. But he had a thoughtful couple of minutes a very thoughtful couple of minutes of which he even stopped himself. He didn't ramble. He didn't get upset. He he took the time to say that he found the professor yesterday. He said, I found her to be very compelling. She seems to be very fine person very credible. This I think the Senate Judiciary committee should do what it thinks is best. And then more than once may he made a reference more than once he made a reference to. I just want them to do. What's best for the American people? He said it twice, and then he stopped talking. Right. He's tone, which is best moment. He started talking about Venezuela. But I thought he looked very presidential today in all of this. And listen, we're I said, I'm glad they're going to do that for two reasons. A we need to learn the truth. Yeah. That's a course be if they rush and get cavenaugh in there, which they might have an is going to have a monkey on his back the rest of his career, and that's not fair to that, man. Because I think the truth is somewhere in between and all this. And if you go to Kavanagh's friend, the God bless his heart who's an alcoholic a cancer survivor. He's already said through his lawyer that he will cooperate. You get his statement. He says he was in there. He corroborates Cavanaugh or corroborates the doctor, and we move on we move on. But I think Republicans. I think they got bailed out today. I think they got go. Today. It was really really bad. Look of this rush to judgment. In fact, I think it was as I said yesterday, I think in some twisted perverted way that I think Democrats wanted them to fast track it, so it could be used against them. That's what little I think of all the politicians involved. So I think they were they were bailed out today. The fact that cavenaugh hasn't said sure do it, please. Do it is a little disconcerting Trump said today. Now, I don't know if he can completely pass the buck on giving you okay for the FBI investigation. Which by the way, the news is it's going to happen. It's going to happen because cavenaugh does not have the votes and the only way they're going to get the votes. Obviously, we'll talk about the guy who won the day, and maybe more, but Trump says would press on views about a potential FBI investigation. He said he'll rely what the Senate Judiciary committee decides. She says that'll be a decision. They're going to make I support them. I'll. Occurs to do. Whatever is best for the American people. And then he stopped talking. It was a highlight so far of the Trump presidency. Honestly, right. Then he sounded solid sounded president. You're the guy who wins the day is an interesting character who have been waiting for this almost now Jeff flake. Is is a leper in today's nationalist, anti Reagan Republican party the party of today. The nationalist party today is about as far from Reagan as you can get and flake by and large movie about as close to Reagan as you could get for people who call themselves conservative. Now, that's a different term today. It is totally just completely different. But in Reagan would not survive today and the Republican party, and that's why flake is not going to survive. And that's why flake has become a leper. But he wins the day he day because he did something because of his position he's not running. Again. He couldn't get elected more than likely in Arizona. But he did what what what what needed to be done have some type of common sense attitude about the interesting. He's a guy who again, he's a leper today. He's on his way out. And he's a guy that I think has been looking for this moment. I think he's been thinking if I just take this higher ground. If I continually take the higher ground somehow, I'm going win. And today he gets the prize for taking the higher ground. Because he's the reason why the brakes have been put on this thing. Which by the way is exactly what the framers wanted. They wanted the process to be slow. They did not want the process to be fast. They wanted the process to be slow so flake stops the whole thing and says. I'll vote. Yes. If you do this investigation would be a a investigation short short a longer than a week, and he says in order to fill the due diligence. He said before the committee, it would be proper to delay the floor votes for up to but not more than one week in order to let the FBI continued to do an investigation. He said with that concept in mind, I will vote to advance the Bill to the floor with that understanding. He said he will not vote. Yes. During the Senate vote without an FBI investigation. The see if this woman is telling the truth and no thinking person. Could disagree with that first of all Hamad Cavanaugh and Republicans ED's right? You don't want this hanging? She was so credible. Now, not all of you granted. But she was credible enough to say, oh, man. We'd better pause. Yeah. Doesn't mean she you know, that she's right? Because we don't know that she's right? But she was credible enough to say you got to pause. You can't just let this go. This can't go on and for that. He was gonna be it's gonna be used if Republicans got bailed out by this. Because now unless of course, they find out that Cavanaugh was lying, and then they're not bailed out by this. But if it turns out that Cavanaugh was telling the truth in this woman is misguided or whatever then they get bailed out. Yeah. Holy bailed out. And cavenaugh can go on and cavenaugh can have that that news conference. He probably desperately wants to say, I'm glad this happened. I told you so I'm right? I wish you well. And he gets to say clean slate. Thank you. I move on. It works for him. Exactly. At worked for him and avid rather see this happen, then ham rushing through and half the country saying it was a terrible approval. Tainted. He's he's a woman abuser. I want. We he deserves the tree he deserves. And again, it's not I don't think it's going to take brain surgery on this to go to maybe re people and say, okay. Don't lie to the FBI. What did you say? Who is there and move on? I thought what Trump said was right now, I am not optimistic enough that Trump doesn't backtrack. But although it Trump said was right. Forget the people involved for a second. You don't want this to be tainted me, I know that we've become nothing, but hacks and suck ups and narrow minded and everything is about our team. But in the end, I mean, you you don't want the court to be anymore politicized. And at the end of the day yesterday. It felt completely politicized helps take some of that away and the average person should want that. And I think Trump was even honest enough to say, look, this is going to be the best thing for everyone. I'm good with it. And I think what we're flake flake wins the day. And I tell you what he may have just done elevated himself may have just inserted himself as the very position. He may have wanted all along, you know, here's a guy that's far more like Reagan the Republican party of today. Here's that moralist that a lot of people used to say about the Republican party. This guy is is pure as the driven snow. This is what you used to say you liked and now he gets at the end of the day. Even though he's getting pushed out the door. He gets the highlights and he gets to become the modern day anti Republican old school Reagan, Republican, and it may have elevated him into a race. He's anti Trump Republic. Yeah. It's that anti nationalist, the monitor Republican party's anti Reagan. He gets to now take that back with this holier than thou position that he wins by doing this, especially for the supreme court, Jeff, I think we gotta get away from from this political football. I never heard when liberal liberal liberal Salta may or or keagan our name any liberal Ginsburg. I never remember the injection of so much live Ginsburg was I think I was at the twenty s thirty seven, but I don't have to. Pre World War Two. I don't ever remember politics being interjected so much by a candidate are surrounding it. We know we know. Sodomy? Are we know Kagan they're left of left? We know that. But they sit on the court, and we know what they're gonna do think we know what Kavanagh's going to do because he's going to be a conservative member. But to have this late and just terrible politics. And I know what was born to because, but it is an end Clarence Thomas, but good guy, everybody everywhere, everybody got bailed out by Jeff flake, y'all. Got bailed out by Geoffrey, you can say otherwise. But in fact, that the democrat tell you who the losers might be Dianne Feinstein might be a big loser in this because she comes off for good reason, we as a total political hack who served this poor woman up as chum in the water. So she's a loser in this. And the the dudes that were ranting yesterday and to a degree. I think become losers in this. But did you see Lindsey Graham today Lindsey Graham was hopefully opposite yesterday. Then he was today today. Day. He sounded calm. He sounded he sounded like, okay, we're gonna get. They all got some perspective. They got out of that little room of breather on exhaust fumes of total testosterone. I said oh my gosh. The entire country. Even Donald Trump is saying this woman seems credible. Right. We don't know. It's the right call if you don't like it don't really care, you should appreciate this. And the framers would certainly appreciate this. And that is always always always put the brakes on you're still going to hear from the rush types about how this is a Clinton conspiracy tan, I keep hearing it all day long. When you have a key issue before anything in congress to the Senate, you have lobbyists, these lobbyists might have worked for Hillary for Biden or so and so for so, and so, but they made it into this black helicopter deal where it's all Hillary driven. It's George Soros and Hillary which is a load of crap Ola. I think that's a load of crap. Right. But that's not that's. Some people that's our world and talk radio. But that's why I think flake won the day. And I think that even people like Lindsey Graham said, wow, the universe is bigger than six percents. The universe is far bigger than that. And they have to be happy today that he took the position that he took that. Yeah. It's gonna slow the process. Yeah. So what so what so what and I don't I don't know. What does it matter that might have been an orchestrated deal by those who are against Cavanaugh to have that thing that today while on the on the elevator with lake with the women who were survivors of sexual assault. Yeah. They were they were pretty keen and the TV cameras on..

"Four eight eight seven nine eleven hundred nineteen. It was reported overnight that at nine thirty this morning. The Senate committee panel would do their vote. But the now it will be interested in seeing if the Republicans ignore the American Bar Association as the Democrats ignored the American Bar Association. Let me explain the American Bar Association recently. A month ago unanimously gave judge Cavanaugh the well-qualified for the supreme court designation that is their highest possible designation. Now, remember, let me say this clearly a month ago, the American Bar Association gave judge Cavanaugh their highest possible designation saying he was well qualified for the supreme court who ignored that the Democrats ignored that. So will the Republicans now ignore the American Bar Association which called last evening for postponing a vote on judge Brett 'em Kavanagh's nomination to the supreme court until sexual assault allegations made by Dr Ford and others are investigated by the FBI? Well, they were ignored by the dams will they be listened to by the Republicans are will they ignore them to now, what do you think about what's going on eight hundred eight five nine zero. Oh, nine five seven eight hundred eight five nine zero WJR our toll free numbers and Bill in Mylan comes up. I Hello Bill. Good morning, sir. I just wanted to kind of share my brief experience about two years ago. I too was interviewed by the FBI for a work associate for their new position with the government. It was over an hour long interview. I too was allowed to ask questions about the process, and the the candidate things that I found very interesting that hour long interview with the FBI. It was very clear and appearance me that there was only one objective for that interview. They were trying to assess the individual's character. They had all the other background facts and figures and information they wanted character. I ask how many people individuals sources were being interviewed for this candidate. And they cited in told me it was forty forty forty forty. I said what is the how does it? What does the interview process in this betting encompass, and they said every six months segment, that's how they phrase it. Every six months segment of this individual's life. They don't mess around or. No, I guess not. It gives me a little confidence in the FBI that I'd kind of lost over the last several months. This individual has gone on to a government position. And also simply a characterize it this way. Listen to vigil, spins tens of millions of tax dollars were their projects our operations, tens of millions, sir. I'm very happy to know that our government does take it seriously vets these individuals beyond belief, so what's your take? Now. Should there? Be yet. If a seventh FBI investigation or inquiry into Cavanaugh, or do you say vote, yea or nay today? It's it's ludicrous. Of course, the vote should be done today. I'm sure in confidence that more than enough information has been gathered analyzed conclusions have been made grades have been given. All right. Thank you Bill. Thanks for sharing that experience. That's something. That's really great insight from our very good WJR listeners, including you David in canton. Can you hear me? Okay. I can hear you loud and clear. I hope the drive is going. Well, both hands on the wheel is forward. Exactly, exactly. I just wanna make. I totally agree with your previous caller. I think enough background checks are done. I would vote him in today. But I just do want to mention that. I I sincerely feel bad for the country. We have to overcome this. There's been so much division. Even prior to this for the past eight years, and I feel like if -bility for the left in the right to work together to progress this country in a meaningful way has been diminished greatly just by the harm that has been done through this entire process. And I pray that country continues to pray for us in our leadership. So the weekend overcome this, and and he'll this greatly. Well, well, that's well put David thank you in prayer does work, and we hope it works here. David in canton, in Senator Lindsey Graham, calling it an unethical sham and saying to judge Cavanaugh. If you were looking for Justice, you came to the. Wrong town at the wrong time, isn't that the truth with what's happening in Washington and has been ever since Donald Trump. Inexplicably. Too many that don't like him. Don't want him. Never Trumpers can't believe that. The people voted him as president and have been openly trying to get rid of him from that point on and the David you summed it up nicely. Prayer would be a good thing. If one side or another doesn't outlawed Frank in Romeo, you're on the Paul W Smith show on WJR. Good morning. Frank. Morning. I would vote for him in a heartbeat, and it's hard to take the whole thing serious. Just because of the way the Democrats choreographed this thing, and you just kind of mentioned that with choreographed. Do they clearly held on the information that could have led to an additional FBI investigation if they really cared about Dr Ford, they don't care at all about Dr for they care only about what they're trying to do obstruct the president from being able to make another choice for the supreme court. That's so not only not only do they not care about Dr Ford or judge cavenaugh they're out to destroy destroy both of them, whether they know whether or not want without Jerry understand that without carrying it. All right, exactly. And the other thing is you know, what the big take I take from this thing. Now fall the democrat liberal part of the Democratic Party has declared war on men, and I'm remembering that come November. My family. I'm learning dependent. I voted democrat. I voted Republican not anymore at least not for the foreseeable future. And I can tell you that my immediate family in November will all be pulling the Republicans lab I've heard that from an awful lot of people.

But we've got to take it out of the hands of politicians, regardless of party, by the way, this is a bipartisan movement. So this is not a Republican idea. This is not a democratic idea.

He said quote under judge Kavanagh's view if the president shot someone in cold blood on Fifth Avenue. That president could not be prosecuted while and open. Cavenaugh?
