"Democrats have dozens and dozens and dozens of these people across the country, sort of basically law fair activists in district attorney's offices whose job it is to harass their political opponents. And you see it in states that you don't expect. You see it in red states most of all, especially red states with urban areas. And this woman is, to be entirely clear, a dyed in the wool activist. Her degree is from Howard University. You know, it's an HBCU, right? Yeah. Known for creating. Yeah. Known for creating many truly, truly excellent prosecutors. And her dad was a Black Panther. And she has basically made it clear that her entire goal in office is to go after the enemies of the Democratic Party. And this rushed low IQ indictment is the biggest proof of it. Yeah, when I think of legal excellence, I think of HBCUs. Totally. Yeah. And for me, this is this is like the spirit airlines of indictments, the DMV of indictments. Just just just I mean, you you could go down the list. It's really endless. But when I think image awards of indictments, yes, back it back. But when I think of when I when I read Norm Eisen's report, his op ed this morning in New York Times, because I've learned that the way to find what the left is doing is just read whatever Norm Eisen is saying, because he's got an IQ that's like, two points ahead of the rest of him. So he's like, 117. And they, he's sitting there going in the New York Times, and he's just talking about how much he loves this indictment and great because charged everybody, and they have this really novel legal theories. It's so insane. And he's just he's looking at the at this thing. And he's like, wow, Norm Eisen is just eyeing up any Willis's big, big booty of charges and saying, I love this. He can't talk about anything else. The real question that I have left is, can she back it up? In court that it can she can she back that up? Yeah, she has to because we need, you know, reality converges on what's funny. That's one of the reasons Trump became president. And so we are hurtling towards this reality that needs to come into existence, which is Fannie Willis needs to run for Senate or governor of Georgia, because when she runs, we'll be able to get fanny pack. And it just needs to happen that reality needs to come into existence. And so that makes me worry because I feel like in that case, we do need this case is going to have to get along far enough that she'll be able to run for Senate. So like the laws of reality ordain that this case will be with us for a while. How funny would it be if Fannie Willis becomes like a statewide elected official in Georgia before Stacey Abrams? That would also be really funny crap. She's gonna be the next governor of Georgia, isn't she? Like, yes, too funny to not happen. Rule of funny, we're screwed. The stinks. So apparently the clip, I think we do have a clip because like she can't read, like she literally can't read. I haven't seen this. Well, so let I don't know if we have that clip. But I do want to make sure everyone is clear because I was educated on Georgia politics today by Colton Moore, who is doing his job as a state representative. Apparently, there is a RICO case also pending against young thug and young blood. Yeah. Was it young blood? Something like it was young blood. Yeah, young blood. Young thug is one. Young thug thug blood. Something like that. Anyway, what's great about it is it's also a RICO, RICO, I don't care, case. And it's like the largest trial in Georgia history. Like it's jury selections and going on for months or I think almost a year even. These are actual crimes, right? Yeah, you know, yeah, actual stuff is involved. And it's expected like the trial itself will go on for months. And that's what's really fascinating with this indictment is why they went after 18 people. It's not just a matter of like, oh, we have to get everyone in Trump's orbit, though it is that. It's also that they like simply by trying all of these, you know, nearly two dozen people together all at once, they guarantee that this trial just goes on and on and on. And to the extent that this is all partly about 2024, they make Trump be kind of stuck in court, or at least obsessed with court happenings for months on end instead of, you know, campaigning for the White House. Partly about 2024. The whole thing is OK, so let's all right, let's play a piece of tape here. Is this one where Fannie is struggling to read? OK, they're all they're all as many stories to read. Play cut 96. The grand jury issued arrest warrants for those who are charged. I am giving the defendants the opportunity to voluntarily surrender no later than noon. Very important forever. Wakanda forever. That's what that sounds like. She might as well. So, Rob, you can get away with the most commentary here. Well, what do your passions tell you? Part of the reason I find her so funny is because she's she's part of this class of people that are trying to basically bring Wakanda forever into American politics. So like she's been Afrocentric and that, you know, her middle name, which is Taifa, and I believe her first name as well, are Swahili. So there's there's a lot of weird psychological stuff going on here. And I just, you know, I don't I don't have a hard time blaming her because, you know, English isn't her first language. Wakanda is. So it's it's understandable. I didn't realize you guys had the same middle name. Yeah, CBD does not have THC. We went through a lot of different vetting.

Let's play cut 90 that I am told this is hearsay, but I am told by a reliable source that Friday evening, somebody from Washington called the district attorney in Atlanta and said, you have to indict on Monday. We have to cover up all of the mistakes we just made with Weiss. And she said, apparently, my jurors aren't coming back till Tuesday. And they said, you didn't hear me. You have to indict on Monday. And she said, we're not going to get here before noon. They said that doesn't matter. She said, this means it's going to be eight or nine or ten o'clock at night. It doesn't matter. We need the news. So who made that phone call? We don't know. And that's and I'm telling you up front, this is hearsay, but it's from a person who has remarkably good sources. I totally believe it, though, because that would explain why they leaked and they messed up on the clerk document, why she was exhausted and why they had the 11 p.m. press conference. Mr. Speaker, Jack, Jack, take it and run. I was going to say so this is actually really important. And, you know, kudos to you for the scoop earlier today on this, that we have completely forgotten about the special counsel and Hunter Biden. I don't even think conservative media, anyone on conservative media, talked about the Hunter Biden case, the Hunter Biden special counsel anywhere this entire week until you and Newt brought it up. And you know what, the minute that I heard that earlier today, when I saw this clip when I was watching your show, that it just hit me as this is exactly why they did it. That's why they rushed it through. Because Charlie, you remember, and we try to plan our show out the same way you do, we know that, okay, the grand jury is going to be meeting, they just sat down a new one, they expire at the end of August, or they've got a couple more weeks charges. You know, we've been hearing through our sources, we were told midweek, but then all of a sudden, they come Monday, and oh, by the way, they're making mistakes. They got this clerk down in Fulton County, I thought we were gonna have another pipe explosion. No, it wasn't a pipe explosion. She said she hit send instead of hitting save when she was typing up the document, because it turns out that they already knew the charges before the jury even finished. Then the judge holds everyone until midday acts like it's totally normal acts like it's just normal course of business. Oh, we're just you know, we're just doing and going through the motions down here in Fulton County, like we would for anybody else. None of them said ever steps back and says this and completely insane. This is like indicting an entire football team all at once. Why is the urgency? What point of this? It's all about the news cycle. It's all about the news cycle. We have Evita Duffy from the Federalist on and this has been her thesis from the start that they keep doing this over and over something bad happens to Hunter, you indict Trump and I hadn't actually connected these two because it had happened on Friday. I think dude is 100% right. So stepping back in the bigger picture is sort of the debate here is that's really been going on even before any charges were brought, which is, is the entire prosecution of Trump from all these angles, you know, Bragg, D.C., Fulton County, even the, you know, civil cases out of New York, is it at all centrally planned or coordinated? Whether this specific version is true or not, like, is there someone is there some brain trust, whether it's one person or 10 people or 50 people where they really at some point strategize like, OK, we're going to want to roll out these indictments. So they're not simultaneous so that all of our trials are spaced out over the course of 2024 to maximize the distraction power and really like, you know, make sure we get the most out of this pot as possible by all working together. And is that what's taking place? And I go back and forth. It does seem like the reaction to Alvin Bragg's one was so muted. I could even I could buy it as the DOJ and Fulton County were in full collusion. And then Alvin Bragg comes in like fat Albert and is like, hey, hey, hey, I got an indictment. And I blew the whole thing up and they all got really annoyed at him. I, I believe this is centralized. Somebody is harmonizing and conducting this. And I think the evidence was let's have the weakest indictment with the craziest prosecutor go first, which was Alvin Bragg moved the Overton window to pave the way. Right. He's the fullback of the indictments so that he could block the linebacker and, you know, to use the football analogy so that then Jack Smith can then follow through. Right. Because it went Alvin Bragg documents January 6, Fannie, Fannie Willis, Fannie, big Fannie Willis. Yes. This is also the indictment made to make me designed to make all of the past indictments easier. The wide sweep that they've done with almost anyone who's even tangentially provided the former president legal help over the last few years is designed to send a very clear message. If you give legal services to President Trump to help him with any of these other cases, being a presidential nominee, being a general election candidate, being involved in helping defend him in court at all, you will be attacked. Your families will be hurt. That's right. There will be protesters in front of your door every single day. There will be nails in your driveway. You will spend hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees. None of that is me inventing anything. That's just what I've heard of what one lawyer is experiencing, John Eastman and how his family has been harassed. You have decent normal patriotic, frankly dorky academic lawyers who just were providing the president legal counsel and advice who have been sweeped up in this. And the process is the punishment. None of these people are independently wealthy. And it's designed to draw away resources, time and energy that could be devoted to actually implementing a future conservative administration's agenda or providing the Republican nominee adequate legal representation during what every election is going to be moving forward, which is a contested one. There's always a trillion lawsuits that fly left and right in any presidential election. And this is designed to make sure that the president does not have good legal representation next time. Yeah, I mean, I know a top tier lawyer that was reached out to by the Trump team, top tier, former DOJ guy. And I spoke to him off the record about a month and a half ago. I said, hey, I think you'd be great. And he was he would really help the Trump team. He'd be amazing. And he's like, I'm not going to do it. I was like, why? He's like, look, I like Trump. He's like, there's something I really don't like about him. He's like, the money would be good. He's like, but I would get in bar complaints and my reputation would be destroyed. He's like, that's, it's just not for me. That's a real thing. I mean, what they've done to really isolate Donald Trump. And I mean, I don't want to say any in particular, but if you talk to any sophisticated lawyer, I don't know a ton, but I know enough to be dangerous. Donald Trump's team is made fun of constantly. Is that fair to say, Blake, like in serious legal minds, they're like a better legal team could crush these indictments. Like if you had 10 out of 10 lawyers, you could come in and you could counter Sue and you'd be taken seriously. There is a, that's an interesting thing I want to explore Blake. One of the reasons why Donald Trump is in such legal jeopardy is because he does not have the highest quality legal counsel. Is that fair? It's very fair. And you know, it's a mix of this really intense aggression. I think one big episode in 2020 was, I can't remember the firm off the top of my head, but they did retain, you know, one of the elite white shoe firms for some of their election cases and the backlash was so intense. The firm comes out and announces, we're not going to do any more, you know, cases contesting an election from here on out. And of course, I imagine there'll be perfectly happy to do so if the DNC pays them to do it in 24 or 28. And you know, so that really active aggression, all these bar complaints, and even it's one of the less commented on parts of the Fulton case is part of the conspiracy claim. And I think actually it's one of the direct charges, one of the like false statements is they just straight up say, like, you know, these attorneys for Trump filed a legal case that made false statements. Yes. You know, any lawsuit is going to involve two competing versions of the truth. We don't traditionally, you know, sacrifice the losers like they're a losing Mesoamerican ball sport team. And but now apparently we do if they're related to Trump. And they're really sending the message of if you're a lawyer and anywhere in the orbit, anywhere in the universe of, you know, the Trump world, like you're just not going to have a career ever again. So Jack, let's let's build this out there. You and I both know several of the people involved in this, you know, Rudy Giuliani, John Eastman, and they will tell you privately and publicly that they have to be told they're told no 40 times before they find a lawyer. And the blue chip law firms want nothing to do. So I'll just give you an example. Right. So Andrew Gillum was indicted by the federal government on all sorts of different types of stuff. Mark Elias came in and represented him, who is a great lawyer. And he had a great supporting cast. And Andrew Gillum beat the charges. And the DOJ is probably not going to retry them. And so you can win, especially when it's political and it depends on the venue. But there's this thing called the 65 Project, which is a bipartisan effort to make sure that Donald Trump or anyone around Donald Trump does not have legal representation. This is the very lead here, Jack. They have awful indictments on top of lawyers that they're not as good as guys. Now, this is interesting because I'll just finish the point. The audience might say, how big of a difference is a good lawyer, a bad lawyer as someone who's been around for 11 years? It makes a whole difference. OK, it's like the whole ballgame. I mean, having if you've ever fought the government or had to ever contest anything, the quality of a lawyer is everything. Jack, real quick, you can bring up the 65 Project website here just so they can see. Jack, I want to, man, I want to say something. So I've sat through all of the so-called Trump indictment that have gone to trial in Washington, D.C., that have led to this. And what I say, the Trump indictment, I mean, the indictments of everyone who's been in the Trump, going back to Paul Manafort, I sat through the Paul Manafort case. I sat through Flynn's hearings, his didn't actually go to trial. Roger Stone's, Steve Bannon. I was at the George Papadopoulos hearings. Probably a bunch that I'm not even thinking of at this point, who can even keep track of that crap. And the the point is that I've seen lawyers who seem like they're absolutely fantastic, who really bring things that are totally just just well put together, well structured. They've got because people don't understand that you've got to do a ton of work just to show up in court. It's not a movie. This isn't the Lincoln lawyer where you can just like operate out of the backseat of your car and go in and win cases against the government. It's not like that. OK. And, you know, no with with all apologies to Michael Connolly, who I'm a huge fan of, is Burke, that in the in the Fed, when you're going up against the federal government that has literally unlimited resources and, you know, you sort of got the federal government junior in the case of New York District as well as Fulton County here, because you know that they're all and they basically all said publicly at this point that they're all sharing information. So Fannie Willis is getting information from Jack Smith and they're all polluting. Jack, I got I got to interrupt you. We have some. Yes. Go ahead. Finish with some breaking. I'm just going to say I've seen both. And when you're on the wrong side of a bad lawyer, it's just be guilty. Like maybe just maybe you'll get a better a better sentence out of it. I don't know. So breaking news, as if the DOJ is not completely compromised, judges and all breaking in the last couple of seconds, federal judge in Delaware has now dismissed without prejudice for venue reasons the tax charges against Hunter Biden might not be as bad as it looks. It looks like this is a motion from the unit. Of course, it looks bad. OK, it's but it's a motion from the United States and it states the United States has moved, quote, to voluntarily dismiss the information filed in the above captioned matter without prejudice. That means it can be brought again so that the United States can bring tax charges in a district where venue lies. Venue is where you're charging a person. So the immediate reading might be that they just plan to charge Hunter with tax violations in a different jurisdiction. But why did they file it in Delaware then originally? I don't know. Is this residence? I mean, I don't know. I know. I don't know enough about this case. You typically have to file it in the place where the crime took place. But go ahead, Jack. I think the reason that it started in Delaware was because Barr had initially assigned it there to this is where Weiss came from, that who at the time was the U.S. attorney for Delaware, that specific district. And now now he has been made a special counsel because this all remember this all came to a head when that sweetheart plea deal was completely blown up in court. And essentially, the judge said, Well, no, this doesn't cover future charges. So Blake, to your point about, about prejudice being very important as to whether or not the charges can be re brought in another district, or even that district. What's really going on here is jurisdiction shopping and judge shopping, because a special counsel has the ability to bring these in different areas. This was actually, by the way, one of the things that the IRS whistleblowers brought up way back when we had those hearings was because the fact that they were they wanted Weiss to be a special counsel, because they thought they would be it would be about bringing more charges against Hunter. Now it turns out that it's not about that. It's about taking this sweetheart deal and bringing it to either a jurisdiction or a different judge that will, you know, basically rubber stamp.

"You could certainly immunize him for that so I think that the areas where we could provide the broadest immunity for President Trump would be around the Conspiracy charges the the deprivation of rights charges is it's almost hard to say with a straight face The chat Jack Smith is brought in fact it was the FBI doing the most to deprive people of their rights when they had agents meeting with Facebook meta Twitter all these technology companies to try to get the hunter-biden laptop story Just scrubbed from the entire information domain during the 2020 presidential contest So that would be a specific area where I think we could neuter the deprivation of rights and conspiracy charges in the Jack Smith Indictment if we brought President Trump in for whistleblower testimony And so potentially Donald Trump could come in as a whistleblower and blow the whistle on What was happening up in the events of leading up to January 6th, Nancy Pelosi didn't want to give troops, you know Because a lot of the the indictment is Centered around the events that lead up to that and so I just I see no downside here So you're gonna have to walk me through this Matt what you're saying is interesting I don't know if it'll stand up in court, but it's certainly worth a try and This is exactly the type of thing we need as the Department of Justice is used as a Democrat super PAC why wouldn't we try to offer Donald Trump immunity and force the hand of The Department of Justice especially on the conspiracy charges in the January 6 related stuff. Is there any downside here? I don't quite I don't quite see a negative well in theory the downside of bringing anyone before Congress to give testimony is that if you say something that is a Material and that is not accurate that can create a cascade of follow-on charges So it's never something that you typically think of as a first step to try to bring people into Congress to give testimony Because it's not typically something people enjoy a great deal. But in this case, I think we Misunderstand the fight that we are in right now You have the Department of Justice functioning as the enforcement wing of the Democratic Party and in a lot of ways what you're seeing now was set up by Eric Holder and Barack Obama because they got some of their most talented political operatives and they gave them The ability to bring charges they turn them into prosecutors that are now career Prosecutors and above for approach but the reality is these are these are left-wing oftentimes Soros aligned and trained killers and they're coming after our people our movement and our president and I think that if Congress just accepts this premise that it's an ongoing matter and thus where we shouldn't be involved then you Underscore the legitimacy of that very matter. That's where I'm in the minority of the majority. I want to be very clear with you Charlie Most Republicans in Congress just think we ought to throw our hands in the air and Allow the chips to fall where they may I think that is a tremendous disservice to the Constitution when we are facing an election Interference operation not a legitimate process. We need every creative idea. This is not a legitimate indictment of Donald Trump It's not a legitimate investigation We need to reject the premise and so what you're saying Matt Gates is most of your Republican colleagues are gutless wonders and don't want To deal with this but what we should do is we should have Donald Trump come in force him to testify Immunize him and then force a constitutional issue. I'm fully in support of that. There is no other option everybody We're just gonna sit around and hope that a rigged DC jury and zip code justice and the interference of an election No, no, it's time to fight fire with fire.

DeSantis is a wonderful governor not running a good presidential campaign not reading the room Ron DeSantis has Campaign campaign manager is out and replaced with chief of staff Matt Gates You are a Floridian and a friend of Ron DeSantis, but you're behind Donald Trump for the presidency. What's going on here? I Agree with you. Ron's done a great job as governor of Florida And frankly, I'm working pretty hard to keep him the governor of Florida for the next few years the this is a pattern I've seen before from Ron DeSantis in 2018 when I was working as a Senior part of his campaign He woke up one day and didn't think the campaign was going well And he asked me to do an audit or a review of the personnel we'd assembled and I told him that if We continued with that team that Andrew Gillum would be the governor of Florida and he would not be and in sweeping fashion He replaced the senior members of the team and the great irony is he brought in Suzy Wiles to write the ship She did Ron won. He's done a great job. And now Suzy Wiles is the titular head of the Trump campaign So my the the interesting square dancing that we do kind of trading partners around in Florida politics a good bit on the campaign staff side and Now I think Ron has had a similar realization that the team that he had in place had burnt through tens of millions of dollars that Ron DeSantis has waged a campaign Against his own vote share Ron DeSantis was knocking down about a third of the vote In the Republican primary before he became a candidate and since becoming a candidate He's clubbed his own vote share down to about half of where it was before he got in the race So I think that would make anybody running question the the team they had around him and the predicate of the strategy right now I don't think it's a anything wrong with Ron DeSantis and his campaign I think it's just that the American people see the moment we're in and we see that President Trump has unique skills and Experience and capability to get our economy going again and also to obliterate a weaponized government That's been turned against our people. I don't know that Ron is Really in a moment to captivate that energy that President Trump seems to have really zeroed in on Yeah, I mean look he's engaging in a policy debate. That's not what this is at all, right? This is a primal scream as Steve Bannon would say this is a time to get back at the Uniparty for an all-out Bolshevik Maoist agenda against the American people and we want a street fighter. We want a bodyguard. We want a UFC champion We don't need policy talks And by the way, I said this yesterday on social media Ron DeSantis lays out this classical education education plan I think it's wonderful. That's him at his best is it time for Ron DeSantis to not further damage his national bona fides and Continue as a rock star governor of Florida and then maybe look at potential political prospects. I Think so Ron's a young man He's brilliant and driven and I think he's got a bright political future ahead in Florida and in national politics And I'm gonna be a big cheerleader his when he comes back to resume the governorship in the Sunshine State I do think that getting drugged in Iowa and New Hampshire and South Carolina and Nevada Doesn't necessarily set up those future prospects as well as unifying behind President Trump But you know, there there is a policy debate going on. You're right that it's it's not the Primal urge that draws us to a particular campaign, but we do need to make sure some of these arguments that are being made Don't prevail. I just saw today Charlie Nikki Haley Criticized the great senator from Alabama Tommy Tuberville Who would want to continue to pay for abortions and abortion services and abortion travel with taxpayer money And so we do need to see some of these bad ideas like those advanced by Nikki Haley Defeated we need to see the bad ideas that Chris Christie and Mike Pence are advancing regarding Ukraine Defeated Ukraine's not the 51st state Our future is not inexorably linked to theirs And I think President Trump's in a position to really get the best of both worlds the right policy arguments But then also the right the right visceral urge to make the necessary changes We have to make to save the country look I'm gonna be talking to some donors tonight some of which agree with me some of which disagree You know, some of them texted me said Charlie. We'd love to hear your thoughts on Glenn Youngkin Let me just say my advice publicly. It's all a waste of time guys. Okay. These are nice people Glenn Youngkin Good governor of Virginia Ron DeSantis next batter up go waste another couple hundred million Stop it guys get behind Trump chase ballots secure our elections have all these wonderful governors You guys can have the feast of the governor's in 2028 but we need a country Donald Trump's gonna win the primary whether by 30 points or 50 points. That's the mystery That's the only question is the margin at this point Let's do the boring stuff chase ballots secure election stuff Ron DeSantis actually did very well in Florida and I don't want him to mess up his future political prospects He's an excellent governor. This is not his time Matt Gates. Excellent job.

But first tell us about your book well Charlie very much and The book really is as deep a dive as you're going to get into the ideologies that drive Some of the most powerful corporations and NGOs on the planet many that you've talked about and we've talked about of course Google Facebook meta Amazon and the World Economic Forum to mention just a few I also go into the Technologies themselves, of course the ideology or the dreams that are put forward Nightmares for us are always going to exceed the technologies themselves and so I hope to give the reader a good sense of where we're at right now or where I was at when I Submitted the book things have actually changed so fast that they've already passed me up But in the end what I really hope to communicate is that this is in fact spiritual warfare that it is a spiritual vision of what the human being is of what the purpose of the human being is what the purpose of our civilization is and that these Competing ideas are coming to a head some real-world examples I think you had the response to kovat as a sort of trial run as what it would be like if you had one side of humanity that sees their status as being as is hinging upon their biological status their technological status and the use of technologies to basically Separate humanity into the acceptable and the unacceptable such as the vaccine passports and also the contract the contact tracing technologies that were rolled out in places like Singapore So the book is it done in novel form or is it just kind of an overview? Just walk us through the structure of the book.

Because the reality is the debates, I'm like, unlike when Trump was attacking everybody back in 2016, when nobody actually liked any of the other candidates, this is the dirty secret. Nobody liked anybody else who's running in 2016. And so Trump had a bunch of baked in advantages. People actually like Ron DeSantis record of governance. And so Trump has been relegated to attacking desantis from the left. He put out a statement, a lengthy statement over the weekend, in which he said that Florida has now become among the worst states to live. Or to find economic opportunity or to work or to retire or to raise a family. No one believes this. No one. Can I move my family to Florida in large part because governor desantis has done an excellent job in the Andrew gillum, where the governor of Florida I don't know that I removed my family here. I didn't just move my family. My parents moved my in laws moved. Two of my sisters and their families moved. There was a reason that over the course of the last several years, about 700,000 people have left their home states and moved to Florida. There's a reason why Florida is the fastest growing state in America, and it is not because it is a terrible place to live. This dog just does not hunt. It's a real problem for Donald Trump, actually, that it does not hunt. If the issues matter at all, so desantis, for his part, he is finally starting to open up the guns on Trump. And he has a pretty good angle here. His angle here is that Trump blew it on COVID. That Trump was too weak on COVID that Anthony Fauci's only a household name because Donald Trump appointed him and then left it left him in place and didn't actually have any control over his own policy because he didn't know what to do. So here is Ron DeSantis over the weekend saying, listen, when it came to COVID, I took control because that's what leaders do. They take control. And to me, leadership is having the courage to make difficult decisions in the teeth of opposition and criticism, a leader must have the confidence to stand all alone if need be. And so for us, as I got into office, COVID presented that situation for us because we were in a situation the third largest state in the country, one of the highest percentage of elderly, economy based on tourism, which we needed travel to continue. So this situation was an existential threat to our state. But I made the judgment leaders take the bull by the horns and make the decisions for themselves. They don't subcontract out their leadership to health bureaucrats like Doctor Fauci. That is going to be a very rich vein for attack from desantis toward Trump. Because he doesn't have to actually say anything about Trump. He can just say, listen, when it comes to actually formulating policy and being a leader, I was right on COVID. And you're attacking me from the left. And that is a fact, because Donald Trump was too distant his left throughout the pandemic. In fact, here is Donald Trump attacking governor Brian Kemp, not desantis. April 2020, for reopening, the state of Georgia. You'll remember if you have, if you have the memory, that Donald Trump actually was very angry at Brian Kemp for reopening the state. I told the governor of Georgia, Brian Kemp that I disagree. Strongly, with his decision to open certain facilities which are in violation of the phase one guidelines. I would advise him not to just turn the switch on and go. Would I do that? No, I'd keep him a little longer. I want to protect people's lives. And I went to Deborah and Doctor Fauci and other people. And they weren't thrilled about it. I think it's too soon. And I don't want this thing to flare up because you are deciding to do something that is not in the guidelines. There is a danger of a rebound. They can wait a little bit longer just a little bit. If you ask me, am I happy about it? I'm not happy about it. Safety has to predominate. And I'm not happy about Brian Kemp. Okay, so remember, that was Trump's opinion in the early days of the pandemic. And then he kind of went back and forth. He was like, we need to open up Michigan, but also we need to close down George, who's all over the place. In fact, in the middle of the 2020 election, Donald Trump actually put out a campaign ad featuring Anthony Fauci, talking actually to Mark Levin in this particular interview. He has never overruled me. The travel was another recommendation. When we went in and said, we probably should be doing that and the answer was yes. When I've made recommendations, he's taken them. And then another

"You know, maybe, you know, I just became a Democrat a year ago, so I don't want to kind of like push my way to the front of the line here, but yeah, I mean, maybe looking at it down the road and four or 5 years. Right now, I'm just trying to get my feet wet inside the party and make connections and learn who people are and meet the fundraising people and all of that. I mean, I'm in Sarasota, which is a pretty heavy, heavily solidly Republican area. So it's hard for Democrats to win here anyway. And what's going on with the Matt Gaetz case there? I mean, when is this guy going to be behind bars already? I can't stand his big forehead and smiley face as he smirks at the fact that he hasn't been arrested yet. I mean, every sign is there. That he's going to get charged. The people who have been charged, the people who are cooperating, the evidence that they have against them, Gates is in the middle of all of that. He's connected to all that. And you know, people on my team have spent our obsessed with Gates and spend a lot of time looking into his background and I can tell you he's just all the people who are in trouble in that criminal case are all connected to Gates. So it's hard for me to believe that he's not going to get charged and arrested soon. I think the issue with him is like the issue with Trump. It's just you go after these high profile, wealthy politicians, these prosecutors just want to make sure that they have the case open and shut, you know, and I don't think that's necessarily the approach that they need to take. You know, when you're treating everybody else the same, you're not necessarily going to prosecute a case unless it's a 100%, you know, you're going to take a case that's 90%. But you're still going to bring the case. But it seems like against these high profile targets, especially elected officials, they want a 100%. And you're never going to have a perfect criminal case. So and I think I get that feeling with gates that they just want every possible corroborating fact. Probably because they're witnesses are shaky. I mean, their witnesses are Joel Greenberg probably is the main witness against him, who's a liar and a 40 time convicted felon. And then you got the girl who he supposedly paid to go down to The Bahamas, you know, she was 17 at the time. Who knows what she's saying or how reliable she is. So I think they just want a lot of corroboration. Yeah, and thank you, Christine. For the 5 bucks. Super sticker. Now let me ask you, what are the chances that we can unseat Rubio? You know, I've always been really optimistic about that race, but I just talked to a really, really smart Florida campaign guy this weekend who doesn't feel good about the race. And then it kind of bummed me out a little bit. And I think, you know, his main rationale was he just thinks that it's going to be really hard for a black female to win a statewide race in Florida. And you know, he makes some good points. But Andrew gillum, who we just talked about was black..

I can't pick and choose the states that, you know, that I get booked that. You know, if I get booked, although I'm not doing stand up, I'm actually just performing on a podcast. But I got to take the work. I mean, come on, you know? I'm a performer. Gonzo asked Ron, you actually think Dems have spines. Now, I got to tell you, gonzo, I disagree with that, even that premise. Of course, Democrats have spines. It's Republicans that don't have spines. It's Republicans are the most hypocritical party in the world who will count out of Donald Trump. How dare you accuse the Dems of not having spines? That's a very ignorant statement at the very least. Wouldn't you say that, Ron? Yeah, I would say my only critique along those lines what gonzo was saying there is, I think that sometimes Democrats shy away from contact. You know, it's sort of like a wide receiver who knows he's going to get hit and won't go up to make the catch, you know? Shies away a little bit, turns his head. And I don't think that's the elected officials. I'm not talking about them. I'm talking about grassroots level, you know, Republicans are definitely more aggressive, definitely more combative, definitely more confrontational, whereas you see it on social media, especially, you know, Republican social media is just brutal. I mean, they're just vicious. Yeah. And, you know, liberal social media is very different, you know? Because we're smarter and more mature. Yeah, there's a lot of sensitivities that people have. But I don't think that's a bad thing. I think we just have to work through those and find that balance. Gonzo's asking you, I don't know what the Ron, where was Andrew gillum. Andrew gillum is done. I mean, I don't know exactly what I think he went through rehab and all of that. I mean, he just sort of took a match to his political career and lit it on fire. Who is he? I don't even know who it is. Oh, he was the one who almost beat desantis. He ran for governor. But after the, and he came very close to beating him and he ran a great campaign and he was a good candidate and all of that, but, you know, he got caught in a hotel room with a, I don't know if it was a male prostitute or just a guy in with drugs and everything else about a year after the election. Oh boy. So he's pretty much toast. Yeah, he's kind of been all over the place with some of the things that he said. So I don't think that we're going to see him run for anything again anytime soon. How about you, Ron? Have you ever thought about running for office?.
How Ron DeSantis Is Winning Against the Left
"In order to win against the left, we must identify the threat and then do something about it. Ron DeSantis in Florida is one of those leaders. Despite being in a very contentious reelection campaign, not using that as an excuse for an action. Ron DeSantis is doing more than ever to protect his voters and his constituents in Florida from the existential threat and cancer that is known as critical race theory. Let us know also as the destruction of our history our language our culture and who we are. Florida is an interesting state. Florida was scheduled by the Democrat elites to become a far left wing state. Ron DeSantis had other plans. Ron DeSantis won against the morally troubled Andrew gillum and he won only I think by like 30,000 votes or something right Connor was very narrow in 2018, and now he's gone on to be the most effective and conservative governor in America in a state that is a 50 50 state and a lot of different ways. Cut 49, Ron DeSantis, articulates on how he does not want to let a militant form of Marxism take hold that is rooted in the destruction of American history. And so every time I play Ron DeSantis, there's a two part dance we do. The complement and then the why isn't everyone else saying? Play cut 49. She these things throughout the country where they take down Thomas Jefferson's statute in New York City where they take down Abraham Lincoln in Massachusetts where they take George Washington's name off schools in California. That is an attempt to erase history. They want to delegitimize the founding of the country and the institutions, and they basically want to replace it with a very militant form of leftism that would absolutely destroy this country if that ever took hold. Boy isn't that true.

"Took that power away from them back in April May, June during the height of the initial first wave. And now he's doing the same thing with the school boards and the school boards are elected by parents in the district. They're the closest you can get from an elected official to a citizen. And he's saying school boards, you can enforce mask mandates. School boards, you can impose a vaccine mandates. You can't do any of the things these parents elected you to do. And I think it's terrible, because we consistently see a spread in a spread of COVID in Florida. And I think a lot of Florida Republicans are trying to excuse this by saying, look, like, oh, it was pretty bad before. Now it's getting better. Yeah, thank God it's getting better. But after over 50,000 people died in Florida after hundreds of thousands of people were infected. That shouldn't be the standard. And we shouldn't be okay with that. So it's been really sad to see. Well, okay, so let me ask you then, because, you know, you're in Florida and you lived there. Has the feeling, are you getting the feeling that floridians are finally going, this guy, this guy's a lunatic. Or are they backing him up like they do Trump? So I think it's a little bit of both, and I think it depends on where you are in Florida. I'm in Miami dade and Miami dade is notoriously the bellwether blue county of the state. So we have a lot more Democrats here than we do Republicans. And here people are simply fed up with Ron DeSantis. And fed up with Trump. But there are areas of the county and there are areas of the state that are so rah rah rah. Ronnie Sanders and Trump because they kind of subscribe to the whole, I hate socialism message. And I think it's a stupid message and I think it's a lot of just misinformation. But I will say with what Ron DeSantis did, that was really going to screw him up in the next election as he lost parents. And he lost a parent vote. And that Republican Democrat NPA, parents don't like him as much anymore. And that, I mean, I think between him and Andrew gillum in 2018, the margin was only about 40,000 votes. There are more than 40,000 parents in Florida. That's enough to swing an election. So I think Ron DeSantis really misplayed his hand with the way he's handled the pandemic..

"Great to be with you today I hope you had a great weekend Thanks a lot for tuning in Telephone number 6 one 8 50 zero 9 9 6 one O 8 50 zero 9 90 and we're online at 9 90 the answer dot com I did not get to this But I would just ask you a quick question if a black Democrat were walking the streets of California or anywhere Philadelphia or otherwise if a black Democrat keep up now A black Democrat running for any office were walking the streets on a campaign stop And a white Republican or a white conservative or a white maga hat person Ran up and through eggs At that black Democrat wearing now wait wait for it Actually let me before even I tell you about wearing How about that Let's just go with that A guy a white guy who's a registered Republican and a Trump voter starts hurling things at a black Democrat walking the streets during a campaign visit What would the story be Oh that would be race white racism Yes Yeah Undoubtedly right Yeah What if the white person hurling eggs at the black Democrat was wearing a guerrilla mask We might have riots And why is that that's racist Why is that racist What's racist about it Because this is one of those things that Democrats leftists have appropriated anything to do with monkeys you know means you're a racist Anything to do with monkeys means racist Monkey they have decided that the term monkey any picture of a monkey anything to do with primates of any kind the left has now appropriated to mean black That's their rules not mine folks I'm just telling you the rules that they have laid out I know this because when people like desantis once said monkey it up During the campaign when he was running for governor against what was the guy that was banging the gay prostitute with cocaine in the hotel room What was his name Andrew gillum what a disaster that one But remember it was desantis running against gillim down there That's right The gay prostitute bangin co head Yes Not Hunter Biden That's right The only difference being the Hunter Biden's not gay as far as we know Right Otherwise I think they're exactly simpatico They probably have some incredible parties Gilman and Biden But it was during that campaign that and I don't remember in reference to what it was doesn't matter All I do remember is desantis said monkey it up Meaning a screw it up But they took that and said what is that Some sort of dig at kill him 'cause he's black No that's a turn of fray He didn't quite you know monkey around with I say monkey around with all the time I use that all the time but they tried to suggest that because desantis was white and Gilliam was black that that was somehow an appropriation of racism Well okay if we're using that standard now that everything monkey related primate related is racist particularly when it involves a black person How might you think it go over if a conservative a white Republican voter was hurling eggs at a black Democrat walking the streets on a campaign stop wearing a guerrilla mask Because that's what happened in California That's what happened to Larry elder And now the headline police seek woman wearing guerrilla mask in attack against Larry elder in Venice California supporters claim double standard Well everyone should claim double standard whether you're a supporter of Larry elders or not as the LA police investigate a woman wearing a guerrilla mask who threw an egg at Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry elder in Venice some of the talk show hosts supporters are complaining that the Wednesday incident that forced elder to cut his campaigning short is not generating more outrage The guerrilla mask prompted conservative commentators to suggest the incident was racially motivated given the white supremacist history of dehumanizing black people with ape imagery well now why conservative commentators suggest Given white supremacist history of dehumanizing blacks with ape imagery That's what you remind us of all the time This is from the Los Angeles Times and KTLA In LA this is what the mainstream press says ape imagery anything to do with primates particularly if a black person is in the story is instantly hostile to that black person without question Of course unless it's the leftist whose attacking the Republican then its different Too law enforcement sources telling the times on Friday that the department was working the case as a misdemeanor battery because the woman gave no indication she was motivated by hate Oh I see So when leftists put on 8 masks and throw eggs at black people that's not hate That's not motive What is that motivated by exactly So if a white person did exactly the same thing to a black candidate you can guarantee sure guern damn tea that that is motivated by hate What makes this different Well of course because their Democrats and Democrats aren't capable of being racist are they Which is ironic because Democrats are the most racist people you'll ever meet Democrats are singularly consumed with race and racism They are the party of racism They are the party of segregation They're doing it now Democrats are extraordinarily racist people They always have been Democrats are the party of slavery.

"Oh, 73 FM and am 5 80 Orlando's news and talk. What is it? Why is it she put it so easily? And so naturally that used to be our conversation. Martha up until Think I don't necessarily think he was behind it. But until President Obama became president instead of the foot, getting off the gas and thus reflecting and moving forward rapidly, we seem to be tearing at each other. And I think part of it was in my humble opinion is when you were critical of the president of a sudden no is because he's black. No. Have you been watching our show? I mean, have you want your network? Do you criticized George Bush? Because he was white? Did you criticized Bill Clinton because he was white. I mean, it was all of a sudden people question your motives. Um, I remember somebody came up to me and said, Do you think President Obama won? Because the economy is going so bad that he would everyone knew he would fail. Really? Are You kidding? He won in a landslide. He won easily against a war hero. Absolutely. I mean, I always thought just watching just watching Barack Obama As a politician. I remember thinking back then. I remember thinking when he gave the speech in Boston that he would be the first black American president, United States. He was that dynamic in that speech, and nobody was going to. I don't think anybody could touch him. I think he could have run against anybody and he was destined to win in that election. It's also interesting when you listen to some of what David Axelrod has said about his feelings about being the first black president Obama's feelings and the discussions and the way they wanted to approach it. They don't want it to be all about that. So I wonder if there wasn't sort of like an overcompensation on the other side of the equation at times, um I can't get in his head. I don't know. But you know this idea of the pain and the progress that Condoleezza Rice talks about. That's what we were all sort of always raised to focus on as a unified country that we've been through painful times that, um individuals and races have had difficult times. Religions have had difficult times that we that we That we look at the pain and we we acknowledge the pain and then we acknowledge the progress and we keep getting art making ourselves better all the time as part of that journey, so I I thought I just thought this race had this because you were talking about education to she brought this up. Can we finally agree? That our K 12 education system is really serving poor kids and minority kids very badly. Can we agree that we actually have a choice system? Because if you are mean she will move to a district where the schools are good. You will go and by the way, the houses will be expensive. So that's a choice. You can send your kids to private schools. So those are choices. So who really doesn't have choice? Poor kids. That to me is the conversation to move forward. Right? Is anyone vilified? Didn't white president to stand up and apologize for 200 years ago? This is what I'm saying. This is why, when we talk about black lives matter, I'm talking about these school Children who are getting essentially robbed because they have more tax dollars coming their way than the other higher functioning schools get, And yet they are being so underserved. Why isn't there more outrage about this? There was one Democrat candidate New York Ray McGuire. Who was interested in this topic, wanted to expand one to lift the cap. There's a cap on charter schools, right? It's all by the unions. Absolutely. They don't want people to have choice. We had black families and minority families want more Chartist watch the charter schools, and they want the choice. And this organization that has just been founded in New York is made up of mostly black families who are going to sue the Department of Education in Manhattan. For what they have done to them and this, So this is a real issue right that people who are concerned about minorities and about equal treatment in this country that they should get on board with. But Ray McGuire, who was fighting for this is the Democrat candidate. He couldn't get anywhere. Why My guess is that he couldn't get the backing of teachers. Unions can get backing on all of these of all of these, you know, traditionally Democratic groups and he went nowhere. So so you know, what do these families do? What do they look to different options politically in the future? We saw that happen in Florida in the governor's race between Rhonda Santis and, um the and the Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum. Who was against choice and to Sanders was for it. Sanders was for it, and he won because he got a lot of minority support that hadn't gone to a Republican before in Florida. So this is a really big issue to watch in these races across the country, and it just it really gets under my skin. When I watch people complain about a stanza of the Star Spangled Banner or a mural that has been there for hundreds of years. Let's talk about real things, and what you're talking about is the National Archives itself. Said that we have too many rich white guys, and we feel as though they're going to be triggering to be. They're going to trigger people. When you see these horrible people like to Madison, Washington and Jefferson and Hamilton, these rich white guys, but but it wasn't somebody commenting to the national Archives. It was the national Archives. I know. I know they built a task force and they want to have a room like a safe space. If you get triggered by that mural when you walk in the door I mean that you ever seen, he wrote today? And there's nothing wrong with like, you know, adding to our history of learning more right, you know, learning more about about individuals and groups that were involved that you feel, you know, deserve a more prominent voice. Tell those stories tell all those stories, but we don't get anywhere by tearing our history down. We have an extraordinary country. There's a reason why so many people want to come here is a great country. It's a great constitution. It stands for all of us. So you know, I just see I see a lot of falseness and so much of this about really caring about making the country better, right? When Barry, for example, we don't know much about her. Yeah, we, but we know this. She's getting a lot of publicity because of what she didn't do, and that is face the flag and give respect to the national anthem, and we're not really buying her antics. Afterwards, she went on another television network. And expanded on it. I thought Megan McCain and we would play all of it. I thought she put it very well cut 10..

There was against the original article, which is Jennifer Van Laar, a red state. She tried to sue a whole bunch of people.

Please chip in If you can hashtag boycott daily mail Now I'm told she has their own podcast. Now to this was just discovered. Katie Hill has a podcast called Naked Politics. Katie hell And apparently her first guest Woz, former Florida governor candidate Andrew Gillum. So we're gonna have to dive into that one and see what's going on. And the naked politics podcast and the subject matter of that podcast is about being bisexual because it's pride month in the month of June. And that was the topic, which should make for an interesting podcast because the term bisexual the Katy Hill is a little bit different than what you understand it to be. Have you ever heard the explanation? Randy? What's the explanation? Well when she says she's bisexual, it's because she likes interns and paid employees. Uh, So she gets it across the board. Anyway. Wolf, of course, take a listen to that podcast. And if there any nuggets in there that we think you might find interesting will play that on the show. The mayor of Los Angeles Eric Garcetti is also in the news today, Randy, But like Children he is to be seen and not heard. So Eric are said he had a press conference today, where he signed the new 2021 budget for the city of Los Angeles and even posted a live video on Eric Garcetti's YouTube page, where the microphone is so far away from the podium. You can't hear a word that anybody says And so if questions were asked by reporters, you wouldn't even know it. However, one print reporter Dakota Smith of the L. A Times caught up with Garcetti's. He was trying to run out of there faster than he's trying to run out of Los Angeles and asked him specifically about Going to India. At first, Garcetti wouldn't talk about what conversations he had with the Biden administration, saying quote that is something I know I'm not going to be speaking about. I've had many conversations with the president over the last year, and I keep those conversations, always private. Wait a minute. You keep conversations private in the confessional. If you've been publicly offered a job by the president, that's not exactly a state secret. Garcetti that was then asked if he would go to India if he's nominated, and Garcetti said quote. I won't speculate on something that's been speculative, but I will always pick up the phone if the president calls Yeah. Well, he better not have T Mobile. And then Garcetti said, this one and see if you can parse this with your political knowledge. John Phillips quote. I don't think you can solve the problems of L A without being engaged in the world. Which is how I tried the lead is mayor and vice versa. We can't solve the problems of the world without Los Angeles being a part of it as well. Well, there are two things going on here. First and foremost when he wasn't offered anything he liked in the first round of job offerings from the Biden administration. He came out and said, I'm not taking anything they offer because we're in the middle of a pandemic, and Los Angeles needs my leadership. And then when the Biden administration changed their mind and decided that there was a job that he was willing to take that they were willing to offer. He has to create wiggle room so he doesn't look like a complete pathological liar. So now what he's trying to do is he's trying to spin it so he could say, Well, even though I'm the ambassador to India, I'm still working to improve Los Angeles because Los Angeles is so interconnected to the subcontinent. So don't think of me is losing the mayor. Think of it is gaining an ambassador. He's also doing something else. Which is what he should be doing because this is the big problem. He could lie to the people of L. A. And the L A Times will cover it up. So don't worry about that. They'll just move on, especially if Ron Lin is the one asking the questions. One of the things that he has to do to avoid a complete and utter public humiliation is make sure the votes are behind them. Now. We talked to Barbara Stone about that yesterday and she thinks that it's very doable for him because he's just not on anyone's radar right now. However. If he is the nominee, and he has to sit in front of the U. S Senate for a confirmation hearing. The subject battered that they're going to discuss is going to surround two things. Number one. Me, too, because he haven't aide who was sexually harassing anything with genitalia and a heartbeat and was doing it right in front of them, and he saw it and he giggled. And then he lied about it repeatedly. That's gonna be a problem for any senator who's interested in me, too, and then the larger issue that's going to be a very difficult one for him to get beyond. Is the fact that he is the poster child for defund the police. After the last election, the Democrats took a look at all of the races that they lost that they thought that they were gonna win in congressional in the House and Senate. Some state races. And the subject that hurt them, the most in their autopsy. They found. We're not talking about Republicans. We're not talking about the media. Democrats in their own surveys found that the issue that hurt them the most was defund the police. He is the poster child for defund the police. So if Eric Garcetti has to sit in front of the U. S Senate panel and get questioned about his beliefs on any number of subjects, guess what we're going to focus on like a laser beam. And they're going to make all of these Democrats from all of these red and purple states. Take a very nervous vote for Mr Defund the police himself, Mayor defund the police. And if you're cursed in cinema in Arizona are Mark Kelly in Arizona or Joe Manchin and West Virginia or Jon Tester in Montana. That's going to be a very difficult vote to take. Because for a position that you don't care about which is ambassador to India, you're gonna have that hung around your neck like an anvil by your opponents when you run for re election, and you say, Well, I don't want to defund the police. So Republicans saying that I do. That's just not true. Don't believe it..

He can follow on Twitter at Dr Sean Foreman, Dr Forman. Great to talk to you once again. Lots happening in Florida politics today. The big news. Charlie Crist, congressman from Tampa Bay Area. Former governor of the state. He will look to run for governor in 2022 Go up against governor to Santis. How do you see that playing out? And where would you put Charlie Chris chances in this run for governor? Well, Good morning, Ryan. It's great to be with you, And here we go. The governor's race. 2022 is heating up. It'll it'll officially begin this week, and that's what we'll be talking about for the next year and a half. And indeed, Charlie Crist is a front runner for the Democratic nomination. Because he is a former governor. I'll be He used to be a Republican. He's a sitting congressman, but frankly, he has that name recognition. I think that most Floridians know him. They have an opinion. Which can be good or bad, but they know him. They know he's been a governor. We know he can raise money, and he is a very good retail politician. So he's definitely, uh, front runner. Um, you know, the issue is Who is going to be the main competition against him in that Democratic primary. If you're Democrat in the state of Florida. Do you have any reservations about Charlie Crist potentially being your nominee since he lost his previous race for senator in 2010, and then he lost in a race for governor and 2014. Yes. So, as I said, he's a front runner, and it depends on his running against him, so we expect it. Nikki freed, the agriculture commissioner will announce a run. Yeah, She's been teasing that for months, and so a lot of insider stuff behind the scenes, people from each of those camps have been working to try toe get one of the other out of the race. So Florida Democrats, I think a lot of them didn't want Chris to run. They know that this is going to cause a problem for any up and coming new station the party because of his name recognition experience, So we just mentioned, But he's formidable. Crist is so you can't just discount him. He may be their best chance. But beyond Nikki Freed, who's expected to run now we're hearing Congresswoman Val Demings is Maybe going to run for governor. She's also nothing coming star in the party, not just in the state, but nationally s. So I think the field might get too crowded and Democrats may knock each other out when Of course, there's that Senate seat against Marco Rubio that maybe In easier chance. Neither one is an easy chance for Democrats to win. But you know, the Santis is looking pretty strong right now. A zoo mentioned in the last hour and as we all know, He's going to raise a lot of money, and he's going to be popular, and he's the sitting governor, so Democrats should be worried that Charlie Crist is their front runner, and he's taking some of the oxygen away from Nikki. Freedom without them means right now. Taking a look at the three potential Democratic candidates for governor to go up against Rhonda Santis and Charlie Crist, Nikki Freed and Val Demings. You have three Democrats who are closer to the center. Of the Democratic Party. Does that leave an opening for someone to come in on the left flank in the Democratic primary. That's a really interesting question, Ryan because I guess would have to map it out and see where they stick. But I think Nikki freed would think that she is more to the left. Val Demings. Her supporters would say she's more to the left and the middle of the party. I think that that's what the Democrats have to figure out in their primary. What is the center? What is the left? Chris would be closer to the center. You know my only thing about Christian? Maybe Maybe he's that guy That could be like a Biden type figure, you know, Help be the center of the party and pull together those moderates and maybe some distance enchanted Republicans. To vote for Chris, But I don't know if that formula works or not. If you remember that time, Of course you do. Democrats nominated Andrew Gillum and I thought, Yeah, I thought he was too left of where the party was. I didn't think that he was the guy. He won the primary. He didn't win the general, but you know that That is exactly it is they have to figure out where they want to sit on the ideological spectrum to appeal to those voters in Florida. After Sean form and Wi OD elections and political analyst and Barry University political science professor who you can follow on Twitter at Dr Sean Foreman, Dr Foreman always great to talk to you. Thanks so much for taking the time this morning. Thank you for having me, Ryan. Have a nice day.

Can't a champ stamp is a tramp stamp, But that can only be located on the lumbar region. You're wrong. Hmm. Where did you get a located down?

"The democrats are trying to get people to vote for them by giving them a handout by giving them an entitlement. The republicans in georgia would be insane. If they did not find a way to get poor kids into private schools the legislature is meeting the legislature. We'll convene next week in georgia. I don't know how they're going to do with the virus. But they're going to convene next week. They would be nuts if they did not spend time this legislative session before the twenty twenty two election finding away to give poor kids access to private schools in georgia give poor families that entitlement dare the democrats to take it away. Look what happened in florida This is broken record time for me. 'cause i've made this point several times in the last couple of months but in florida rhonda santa's in two thousand eighteen won a super close election. He beat a black man running as the democratic nominee. Andrew gillum who had been the mayor of tallahassee. And do you know why rhonda santa's beating. He beat him. Because andrew gillum and the democrats ran on getting rid of jeb bush's education reforms whether you like jeb bush now or not jeb bush in arguably was one of the most conservative governors the nation has ever seen and he was huge on school choice in education and essentially got the florida legislature to restructure their laws to allow poor kids into private schools at taxpayer expense or at least subsidized to some degree to make it easier and more affordable for them to go and they've done it and the literacy rate in florida has exploded. The math performance in florida has exploded Poor kids in florida can get a great education in a private school for cheap because of those reforms and the democrats campaigned in florida. Say we're going to get rid of the stuff caused a lot of black families in hispanic families to vote republican and ron just got elected the republicans georgia are looking for an edge with hispanic voters. I mentioned earlier in the program today. David purdue has been running ads around the state s kelly leffler targeting the hispanic community. They've been running. Spanish language advertisements on spanish language radio and television stations. They've been sitting mail pieces in spanish. David perdue got forty three percent of the hispanic vote in georgia. The number one issue for hispanic voters in georgia is jobs. The number two issue education. They're voting for purdue and leffler for jobs they'll vote republican in the state for education if the republicans will give them something. The democrats in the state are running vans around the state saying get. We'll give you twelve hundred dollars if you vote democrat because in the it's not a bribe.

"Gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum. Yeah. He was running against the yes Hat who finally became the governor. Of Florida. Discussed his battle with depression and alcoholism Monday night During his first public statement since entering rehab in March, Gillom apologized to supporters in 11 minute Instagram video. He explained that the depression he had been fighting for years worsened after narrowly losing his 2018 race to governor to Santa's. It was Gilliam's first public statement since the March incident when he was found Inebriated in a South Beach hotel room, along with a man who had reportedly overdosed on crystal meth. He says. I've been suffering from depression for years, and that Came to a head after I lost the election. Former Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum. He didn't look good in the video, either. No. He looked pretty ill and Pretty shaken and It's it's interesting that he could go from almost winning. The governor's race was close in Florida, too. Being found in a Hotel room with a dead guy. It's very weird, very weird
Ex-Florida gov. candidate Andrew Gillum to enter rehab for alcohol abuse
"The subject of Andrew Gillam sure about this so word has it this guy by the way if you don't know who he is he is an ex Florida governor's gubernatorial candidate and apparently they found him and another guy in a hotel room and the other guy was well pretty much unconscious and had mess all over his face and apparently the guy was wearing something called chaps yeah if you don't know what shops are well you just go find out for yourself but don't do it on a work computer and Gillam is sort of you know walking around in some sort of a hazy state now turns out the guy who was with Gillam in this hotel killed you know married I think he's even got some kids it's Gillam E. is caught in this hotel room with this other guy who is some sort of a male escort now I had so a third guy comes into the room to continue the party she got Gillam you got this other guy who considers himself a some sort of like a male prostitute kind of a thing wearing chaps he's on mass Gillam apparently is drunk or high on something so he's rather inebriated as well so that the third guy walks in he sees the male prostitute he's unconscious barely breathing any calls nine one one so the officers that arrived due to the fine but Andrew Gillam you know the guy who was running for Florida governor so I'm now Gillam does what most people would do in this kind of situation he is going to enter rehab who didn't see that one coming now if I remember right this guy is corrupt as all get out anyway former Florida candidate for governor Andrew Gillam disclosed on Sunday that he is entering a rehabilitation facility saying he had fallen into a depression and alcohol abuse after losing his bid for the state's highest post you know I usually have a couple of fi chocolate chip cookies when I get depressed maybe chocolate chip sundae that kind of a thing I don't go into a hotel room with a male prostitute and another dude with a bunch of mass Bill Clinton you member Bill Clinton with that whole story in the last couple of weeks yeah you know what I was dealing with the pressures of my job so I started doing what I was doing with Monica Lewinsky now Gillam is saying that he was depressed after losing his bid for the governorship and so he decided to enter into a hotel room with mass a male prostitute and another guy it all makes sense now by the way yes he is a Democrat the Democrats statement came days after Gillam was named in a South Florida police report on Friday said that he was inebriated and initially unresponsive in a hotel room along with a male companion where authorities found baggies of suspected crystal methamphetamine so there is your Andrew Gillam update he's not charged with any crime he was allowed to leave the hotel how do you explain because I just

Governor Scott Walker which known for aggressively busting unions, and for his close ties to right wing dark money groups, and those are some of the headlines, this is democracy. Now democracy now dot org. The warrant piece report, I'm Amy Goodman, Juan Gonzalez, welcome to all of our viewers and listeners across the country and around the world. Democrats have seized control of the house of representatives flipping more than two dozen seats. This gives Democrats subpoena power for the first time since President Trump was elected two years ago, while the Democrats will control the House Republicans picked up two more seats in the Senate on the state level. Democrats picked up seven governorships huge turnout numbers were reported across the country. President Trump responded to the election results by tweeting, quote, if the Democrats think they're going to waste taxpayer money investigating us at the house level. Then we will likewise be forced to consider investigating them for all of the leaks of classified information and much else at the Senate level to complete that game. The terms were a groundbreaking election for women for the first time in US history. At least one hundred women will serve in the US house of representatives, including the first two native American women and the first two Muslim women later in the program. We'll hear from. Democratic socialist Alexandra Cossio Cortes who became the youngest woman ever elected to congress. But we begin today's show with two guests here in New York, Katrina, vanden Heuvel, editor and publisher of the nation. America's oldest weekly magazine. She's also a columnist for the Washington Post dot com, and we're joined by Rashad Robinson, executive director of color of change. We welcome you both to democracy. Now, let's begin with Katrina vanden who've oh your thoughts on what has taken place the house now in the hands of Democrats Republicans have expanded control of the Senate. I think taking back the house is critical is a check on President Trump. But also, I think it's important people know that a majority of the committees and subcommittees will be controlled by progressives. The progressive caucus will have about ninety members some of the women you mentioned will join and it will have thirteen committees. And I think thirty subcommittees that's important. And I think the ability to not only hold the president in the. Administration accountable on corruption on self interest on self-dealing, but the ability to lay out bold initiatives, bold, legislation may not pass with a Senate as we've seen it. But it's critical. I think that the progressive Democrats lay out in this war of ideas, that progressives have been winning to a certain extent fifteen minimum wage jobs program infrastructure, free higher. Ed. The governor's race is one spoke of critical critical both as a blue wall against the redistricting scams that we've seen from the Republicans critical also to rest back the rust belt from Trump who really did. Well, and key parts, Wisconsin. How sweet it is Scott Walker going down. I mean, my colleague John Nichols has written so much copy about this man who busted public workers assault on education has demeaned and degraded the Wisconsin idea, so I think that's critical amendment for renewed Robinson. And I were. Talking about it. One thing we've seen in this election. Amien won the barriers to democratic participation the will funded targeting voting suppression. So men men for restoring rights to ex-felons to vote one point four million Floridians will be able to vote I think is a vital step on the road to a true democracy. Statehouses? We haven't seen the numbers yet. But those will be hopeful as well flipping. I think Minnesota and a few others. So I think it was you know, it was a bittersweet night because we've seen the incendiary toxic. Nationalism xenophobia, any immigrant actions talk of this president and his enabler in the Republican party. You know, they they secured some wins. However, those who say was kinda split, let's all recall that the Senate map is the most horrific for Democrats. I mean, it's just, you know, the one third up we're really states in which the Republicans and Trump of played well, you mentioned the rust belt, and it to know that there were three states that really delivered for Trump, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania and of the and they're those three in those three states. The statewide all Ron's either for governor or for Senate for the US Senate of the Democrats won six out of seven. So you've seen a situation now where those key states now are really not as reliable Republican as they appear to be in two thousand. One. I mean, many of those voters went for Obama in two thousand and eight and two thousand and twelve so it was that flip in two thousand sixteen that has to be looked at. And I think last night was in good insight into what is possible in twenty twenty in effect. We can talk about a twenty twenty began last night, but that's a different discussion. But I think you see it with taking back those those state houses there were some good minimum wage initiatives in states very troubling that good initiative in Washington state, the kind of carbon tax the green new deal went down. You still see the power of corporate money in our system and at the state level. There were six states that moved into total democratic contrived and the one of the New York state where the New York state Senate, which was had been very evenly divided. The Republicans control now is overwhelmingly democratic twenty three. I think is now the number in the New York state Senate win that means in terms of what can be accomplished. By progressives. Progressives won a supermajority in the Vermont house neutralizing, the newly reelected governor fill Scott's veto threat knows this. I mean, it's critical on so many levels. But historically, as you will know we've lost over a thousand state legislative seats in the last few years. So this is coming back and saying Democrats progressives are going to play at all levels, New York state. You studied you've written one? It's a major win us. See what governor Cuomo does with it because he's hid behind the inability to do much with the independent democratic conference now defeated one last race, which I think is very important one. And I were talking about is Antonio Delgado in the nineteenth congressional district that race was supercharged with toxic racist rhetoric. John Foucault has held out against good people except for teach out, but he's gone. So I think you know, it's a bittersweet, but I think real gains were made. And I think it would be wrong to. Downplay those one of the nation's most closely watched races of the year remains too close to call Georgia secretary of state Brian Kemp, holding a slim lead over democratic challenger Stacey Abrams who is vying to be the first African American woman governor in US history, but Abrams is refusing to concede because thousands of absentee ballots have not yet been counted campus currently at fifty point five percent if he dips below fifty the race goes to a runoff. The Georgia race was marred by widespread allegations of voter suppression carried out by Brian camp. Again, who is as Georgia secretary of state is in control of the elections, despite the fact many demanded that he recused himself. Meanwhile, in Florida Democrat Andrew gillum conceded to Republican Ron to Santa's after a tight race Gillam attempting to become Florida's first African American government, but faced a string of racist attacks from outside groups into Santa's who told Floridians knocked. Monkey this up and in Maryland, Republican governor Larry HOGAN was re elected defeating democrat, Ben jealous. The former head of the N double ACP or shod Robinson. You're the executive director of color of change. Yeah. I think I think these. You know, what happened last night with particularly with Andrew in Stacy's race. I think represents the way that the south is changing.

Midterm election results begin to pour in
"Were so angry about Merrick garland, President Obama's supreme court nominee who never got a vote in the Senate. He never got a vote because Republicans had control and majority leader Mitch McConnell had the decision of we will hold a vote on him. We won't hold vote on him. He decided not to hold a vote. It didn't happen. So with Republicans maintaining control of the Senate that means McConnell will be able to hold votes on a whole lot of judicial nominees for President Trump. They can continue putting conservative judges on the court. And if the Democrats do take back control of the house and pass a permanent fix for for Dhaka. Recipients are or many of other things that that Democrats want to do that means that the Republican Senate can just not vote on it or vote for something else. And here's one more thing if Democrats want to push impeachment the idea that a Republican controlled Senate would vote to convict a president who's been impeached by the house is somewhere around zero percent. And how close are Democrats to their goal of retaking the house we've been saying Twenty-three seats need needed to take control of the house. How far along are they at this hour of the night about halfway there? They've picked up about a dozen seats at this point in time. And that puts them in pretty good track considering some any of the key races. Democrats thought would be that first wave seats. They pick off are out in California. Where polls haven't closed yet. How are they doing in the governor's races? They're doing pretty well as well. They have picked up gubernatorial seats in Illinois. And I believe Michigan as well. Democrats have picked up seats there. They've also defended seats in Colorado. Jared polis won the open governor seat. There Ohio had been a race. They'd been getting a lot of tension. Richard cordray had been re leading a lot of poll. He's the democrat running for governor on. Hi, oh, he's actually trailing the Republican Mike dewine right now by about seven points, which is notable since Sherrod Brown. One a really easy reelection in the Senate race. No a couple of the most prominent governors races. We've been watching in Georgia and Florida still too close to call that is right Florida is basically fifty fifty Republican Rhonda Santa's has a fifty to forty nine percent lead over democrat, Andrew gillum and in Georgia. Let me just scroll to that on my screen. I think I would remember if we'd call that race. Yeah. But with sixty seven percent reporting Brian Kemp, the Republican is leading Stacey Abrams. The democrat fifty four to forty five percent that would be notable. Because nearly every poll had that race neck and neck. Well, we're going to hear more about Georgia actually in right now. Bill of Georgia public broadcasting is with us, and he can tell us. More about that Bill. I'm Michelle good to talk to you. So how's it looking there? Well, I think you've got to be careful about the margin that you're hearing right now in the Georgia governor's race because the big metro Atlanta counties, which are predominantly, of course, democratic are still those precincts are out in big numbers. Dekalb county one of the state's biggest and most powerful democratic counties. Very few of the votes. Counted their Fulton County Clayton county counties in the immediate metro area. And what what you have to have had had seen was kept building up. The kind of Lee showing right now across rural Georgia to withstand the. Influx of democratic votes. So I think it's really fair to say that race right now really is way too close to call. And just remind us if you would have why it is that people are so interested in this race. I'm gonna take my colleague more licenses instruction here, and and not call it a waiver. But, but you cannot ignore the fact that there's been tremendous excitement about this race from all across the country excitement and anxiety, and and actually some anger and tell us why remind us of why I think there are several reasons number one, of course, Stacey Abrams if she wins would become the first African American female governor in the United States. She's also running as a progressive democrat Democrats run as real Democrats in Georgia. They run to the right. And in the last decade, plush it hasn't gotten anywhere. Jason Carter tried to do that. When he ran for governor in two thousand fourteen Jimmy Carter's grandson, he didn't get very far. So Stacey Abrams is come in and said, no, no, no, I am basically a liberal Democrat. And I'll run his one Brian camp runs as a very conservative Republicans. So you've set up a dynamic here that we have not seen in Georgia for a very very long time. And I. Has made for a really exciting race. I'm sorry. You didn't mention Oprah. Could we mentioned? I just think we should mention Oprah. Because once you do that at and who came in to what campaign for Stacey Abrams. You know, Oprah told the crowd she did to events
