Andy Biggs: Glad Dem Mayors Finally See Illegal Aliens as a Problem
"Not that you're laughing, but are you looking at the mayor's nimby here and thinking, told you so? Yeah, I think well, I'm glad that there are at least finally acknowledging that illegal migrants and aliens coming across the border can potentially be a problem. So, I mean, yeah, I mean, to see mayor Bowser mayor Adams, they're just having a fraction of what happens on the border. I mean, you've got, you've got cities of 20,000 people that are seeing four or 500 people a day coming through towns just a 100,000 that a thousand a day. They're complaining about a total of 4000 busted them from Arizona and Texas. And you know, well, grow up. I mean, let's face it, let's work together now and secure the border.
'Liberal Misery' Author Eddie Scarry on the Unhappy Nature of Leftists
"Right now is Eddie's scary. He's author of a new book liberal misery. How the hateful left sucks joy out of everything and everyone. Getting straight to the point by Eddie scary, Eddie, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Hey, happy to be here. So basically, I mean, I haven't read the book, but the summary seems that explains what drives America's left to be such a wet blanket. Liberals Democrats and leftist tendency to zealously spread discomfort and misery has been somewhat of a mystery. You even say that conservatives are showing to be have better mental health and liberals. So if I could just cut straight to the chase, if you're dealing with depression and you're a liberal, stop being a liberal and become a conservative. Is that about right? I think that's a question for a doctor, but I will say yes, as you said, this whole concept of liberal misery and liberal anger and bitterness that was something that I think me and I'm sure you and every one of your listeners and viewers have experienced and I would say experienced to some degree for quite some time, but when I really started to notice it was in 2020. I live in Washington, D.C., so it's all liberals all the time. Most of the people I associate with are just going to happen to be liberal. But I noticed that in that year it was just becoming very, very obvious that there was something wrong here and I felt that the politics and the bad nature of the whole thing was only coming from one side. And I kept asking myself, why are liberals so miserable? Why do I keep having these even just normal stuff? What should be normal pleasant social interactions if the pandemic came up if any of the Black Lives Matter stuff came up if the campaign came up and discussion suddenly it's an all out war with these people and I kept thinking, why is this? What is this anger about? So
Why America Is More Miserable Than Ever Before
"So there's a very fascinating chart here that I believe is one of the reasons why America is becoming significantly less free. Modern families in our households have changed since the 1970s. So for example, I'll narrate this and then we'll put it up on screen. The percentage of 25 to 34 year olds living with a spouse in the United States in the 1970s, 82% of 25 to 34 year olds were living with a spouse. Now it's 38%. That's right. Not only have marriage rates gone down since 1970, but a dramatic decline, a 44% decline of who, young people are living with. It's going to be put up on screen. The percentage of 25 to 34 year olds living with parents or relatives, in 1970, 11% of 25 to 34 year olds were living with their parents. Now 29%. But in addition, cohabitation has increased, living with an unmarried partner, 17% of young people are living with an unmarried partner. Whereas that number was about 1% in the 1970s, 10% of people are just living alone, whereas in 1970, it was 5%. So America is less married than ever before. More people are living with spouses living without spouses or living with their parents or other relatives or the living with roommates are living with a cohabitated partner, and yet we're more miserable. Isn't it interesting how that all works.
The Latest on the January 6th Political Prisoners With Julie Kelly
"I want to be meticulous here. Because you've done such a service that I think hasn't gone the requisite attention outside of American greatness and some shows. You've been on tacos show. You've been on my show regularly, but we need to really document people need to read your book January 6th and we need to document what's happening in the last year and a half. So let's talk about, again, what's happening in the courtrooms? Will you share with us the details? Well, let's start what's happening in the prisons. What is the conditions, only a handful of Republicans have dared have shown the fortitude to actually go and visit these prisons. It's Matt Gaetz, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Louie gohmert, Paul gosar. I may have missed one or two, but it's a handful of sorry. Andy bigg. Andy Biggs, of course, just a handful out of the hundreds who should have gone. We share a little bit about what the conditions are like and how they're being treated in the prison in the nation's capital, Julie. So right now, Seth, there are roughly 70, 75 political prisoners about half of those men are in this D.C. gulag. Some of them have been there for now 16 months and counting. The DoJ, U.S. marshal service are actually transferring some men who have been detained in other parts of the country for months on end, moving them to this D.C. gulag. I mean, it's exactly what you would think, jail in Washington, D.C., would look like. They're mostly held in solitary confinement conditions. They are tormented by jail officials, jail guards who have nothing but contempt for them is Trump supporters. Their defense attorneys complain incessantly in court to D.C. district court judges who are duty bound to protect the rights of defendants against this vengeful government, they have failed to do it. The defense attorneys can not get access to their clients. The jail guards are withholding, discovery evidence that is sent to the jail for months on end. So they are prevented from their constitutional right as a defendant to build their own defense.
Rep. Andy Biggs: Why Can't Arizona Verify Citizenship?
Rep. Andy Biggs: Texas Is Right to Determine Illegals as Invaders
"Congressman, what are your thoughts on how the lieutenant governor in Texas wants to handle the problem? Well, I think he's a 100% right. It's an emergency situation and it's an invasion. Constitution is pretty clear that the states have the right to when they're in imminent danger to act when the federal government won't and we are in a danger. And the federal government won't act. I mean, you've got human traffickers, drugs, smugglers, you've got cartels that control the border. You've got the inhumanity that's going on. And the flood of people coming across and people say, if they're saying it's racist, if people criticize its racist, then I would say they're racist because what's happening is you've got people from over a 150 different nations. There's nothing racist or xenophobic about it, what it is is trying to protect your border and Todd, we have to take action and start pushing people back or at least to the ports of entry. These people are coming through the ports of entry. They are invading the way marauders and smugglers do.
Stephen Miller on How Americans Should View Immigration
"With this right now is the premier immigration expert on the planet. He knows more about this topic than anybody else and he was the architect in The White House around some of the most creative solutions that secured our country when we had president Donald Trump in office. And that is Stephen Miller. Stephen, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Thank you. Appreciate that very kind introduction is an honor to be here. Steven, you're terrific. You know this topic very well. I want to start more broadly and then we'll get specific. Can you walk through how we should think about illegal and legal immigration? Immigration should always serve the homeland immigration can be an asset, but at times immigration can also become a liability if it's not managed correctly and it's not done prudently. Can you talk about historically how America has had fluctuations in legal immigration about how illegal immigration is somewhat of a new phenomenon in the last 30 or 40 or 50 years and how should we view immigration as American patriots? Yes, those are all excellent questions to frame up the topic. We try to address each of them. This foundational principle of immigration policy is that any and every decision you make must serve the interest of the citizens who are already living here. That is the prism through which all immigration actions should be evaluated and judged. Whether it be permanent immigration, temporary immigration or illegal immigration. And so one of the things that we've lost in this conversation in recent years, maybe recent decades, is the idea that restrictions on immigration are a positive thing for the people who are already living here. It doesn't matter whether you're talking about restrictions on guest workers, restrictions on green cards, restrictions, obviously on the entry of illegal immigrants, which should of course be zero being illegal. And the reason for that should be pretty obvious to anybody who thinks about it, but of course we have a conversation that's been severely stifled by a combination of corporate interests and political interests, financial interests.
"andy biggs" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"So can you talk about the cartel's role in this? So the cartel, they prey on these poor people in Nicaragua and in Honduras. And they take all their money and they trafficked them. Right up to the border and they make money on the human smuggling part of it and sometimes they'll have them bring drugs across. Can you talk about how sophisticated this is though? Because the impression a lot of Americans have is that these are just people and mountain and village towns and they kind of, they build themselves up by the bootstraps to go to a better life. It's not like that. This is a kidnapping operation. A pseudo kidnapping operation where there's a business model where the cartels know what they're doing and in fact their profit motive is getting as many people as possible across the southern border. Please expand on that. Yeah, that's exactly right. So cartel effectively controls every inch of the southern border where I'm standing today. They tend to let migrants come through. Why? Because they don't want the disruption. But in other places, whether it's humor or Tucson or Rio Grande valley, they're controlling everybody. So let's say you go to in Del Rio, they're going to let a bunch of people come through and then they're going to send in that would cause an distraction and they'll be hundreds of miles without any patrols. So that's going on. And while that's going on, you've got people that are coming through. They don't have any money. We talked to some folks from Peru, just this morning. And you know what? They had to pay some money when they got here. They said they didn't have to pay any money in this place. That's why they come to Eagle Pass. But everywhere else on the border, you have to pay money. And if you don't pay the money, the cartel is going to kill you. If you try to get through or they're going to stop you, they're going to repeatedly violate the women. We always hear about the women being violent. That's true. They get raped a lot. And I'll just give you a story of a woman who gets was found by penal county deputy and they said, why do you have all these pills? And she said, those are morning after bills, because I knew I would be raped by the cartel that was bringing me across. When did that become okay? And so the cartels keep track of these people. They know they're very sophisticated. You've got people on both sides of the border and these border towns that, you know, some Americans are working with them. They're transporting them. And guess what? They're now transporting these people who come across the cartel's advertise on WhatsApp. They tell them how much a body and then you'll get a kid. Like we've got kids from Chandler, go on down to this Chandler Arizona going down towards the border. They'll pick up a car load of people and they'll make three, four, $5000 by bringing them back to the valley of the sun, the Phoenix federal area. And that's how sophisticated they become. They're very logistically savvy. They know our laws. They know how to get around our laws. And it doesn't help that our administration doesn't even want to enforce the laws that we have on the books. And the administration wants it to happen. So what can we do about it? The federal government's not going to do much. I think it's time for the states to act unilaterally. We need an Arizona border patrol. You and I are both proud arizonans. We need to Arizona border patrol Arizona starts deporting people themselves. I believe we need to defy the federal government. I don't say that lightly. They defied the federal government when it came to sanctuary cities. We need to enforce our laws. What's going on here? Because our country is being invaded. Yeah. Our article four section four says that federal government has to protect all the states from invasion. I believe this is an invasion. The amount of people that are coming is phenomenal. You're going to hear an air boat behind me and be hard to hear me. But the reality is, I believe the states now need to be a feel empowered to act and turn people away. So yeah, turn the people away. That's the bottom line. And we can do it and we should be doing it. I totally agree. Representative Andy Biggs, freedom caucus, one of the fighters in D.C.. He does a great job when we take back the House of Representatives. He better be the chairman of some very important committee because something on immigration or Homeland Security would be terrific. God bless.
Rep. Andy Biggs and Charlie Discuss the Cartel's Role Along the Border

I edit on over to check out south side of the facility where the detention facility that they have here.

Brave Republicans Confront DOJ About Whitmer 'Entrapment'
"A handful of Intrepid Republicans, and it's, it shouldn't be a handful. It should be the Republicans in a unified political phalanx. But no, it takes the brave ones to go out front. And here I'm talking about, I'm gonna name them. It's led by Marjorie Taylor Greene, but you've got Scott Perry, Dan bishop, Andrew Clyde, Andy Biggs, bob good, Mary Miller, Paul gosar, Andy Harris, Louie gohmert, Thomas massie Matt Gaetz, well, what are they doing? In the aftermath of the exoneration of two key defendants in the Whitmer kidnapping trial, the pressing attorney general Garland for some specific answers. Now, trying to get answers out of Garland is not an easy business. This is like going to the consigliere of Don Corleone and saying, hey, listen, we're we want to find out more about the mafia. You're actually talking to the mafia. But nevertheless, this needs to be done. And so this is a stinging letter and a demand. Of Merrick Garland copied a Christopher wray, and the questions themselves are telling, let me just read a couple of them. Who within the DoJ and the FBI knew about or was involved in the plot to kidnap governor Whitmer, tell us. Remember, this is a letter being sent by the legislators to the executive branch, which is accountable to the legislative branch. Number two, to what extent would the DoJ and the FBI motivated by the 2020 presidential election to paint political opponents as domestic terrorists specifically Vis-à-vis the plot to kidnap governor Whitmer and the events of the U.S. capitol on January 6th, 2021. In other words, this is not just at the FBI staging orchestrating infiltrating and moving along a plot. This is the FBI timing those events to coincide with an election. So the issue here being raised is the election interference, very important issue because these revelations came to light in early October of 2020.
Understanding Convention of States
"Remember who blocked it in the Senate in Arizona Mark Oh yeah it was a Republican Who was it That was Andy Biggs Who is on Fox who everywhere is viewed as a strong conservative right That's correct Now a congressman Because they don't comprehend what this is about You and I used to oppose it You actually have to study this It's not about being knee jerk The same people who wrote the rest of the constitution put that language in there For exactly the circumstance Where Congress is out of control where the federal governments have a control and they do not apparently understand the amendment process Takes 34 states to effectively convene a convention of states 34 Not a majority of supermajority It takes the same 38 states it is the legislatures by voter by convention 38 To amend the constitution That's not changed 38 say tense a big damn that's 30 three fourths of the states How are you going to have a runaway convention apart from everything else If 38 states have to ratify Moreover a runaway convention I guess people aren't looking around at the court system or looking at Biden and the Congress We have a runaway convention It never stops running away It never stops changing our constitutional system

"We're here You are from Arizona's 5th district We appreciate everything you do in this fight Your state you're in real trouble with the immigration crisis now Real trouble It's gotten disastrous There's video that's emerged and some of Fox News is reporting from Bill illusion and others and some hidden camera video of the Biden administration Now basically opening the borders taking people into processing centers congressman flying them around the country to FBO's and private airports late at night after the curfew and just letting them loose Is that not impeachment worthy to me I mean that sounds and you know I'm not the kind of guy who throws that around loosely I mean it is a high crimes and misdemeanor thing But if you're facilitating an invasion of the United States by transporting people in the country illegally around the country with no real means to track where they are who they are or what they've been up to I mean that sounds to me like a very serious offense It is really serious I think it's a high crime investment By the way I'm sitting about 15 miles out of order I've just driving back from the border I went down to see it this morning And I would just tell you Dan that's one of the reasons I introduced a resolution in peace by the secretary of America because he is violating a statute And Biden is violating statues too My orchestra admitted in you the other day that this is the Biden administration's policy and their policy is to endanger the country is to allow an invasion By the way a 178,000 apprehensions and another 30 to 50,000 got aways in December that's an invasion by anybody's rational book It's irrational that's the vision That is impeachable in my opinion
Rep. Andy Biggs Proposes Path to Fight Campaign Ad Censorship
"But one of the things that worries me most about big tech I was talking to another congressman the other day former they'll leave his name out of it And he was telling me that his campaign ads used to be censored by both Google Facebook and YouTube that he would get denial You can't run this idea and they weren't controversial ends at all Congressman the guy I was talking to some pretty mainstream guy And I said to him how is that not an FEC violent We have the federal elections commission designed to give us fair and free elections right It's supposed to be conserving again freedom and fairness in elections And yet you have Republicans who can't run ads due to what Facebook says and in Democrats seem to get free reign I mean we do have tools to fight this stuff No yeah we do And we certainly we should be using it Maybe you do have an SEC violation But the problem and you identify just a second ago is the FTC Federal Trade Commission the FTC federal elections commission these folks that get stacked with and they're not regular Democrats These are the less spring Democrats that hate that the professor tolerance but they're so intolerant to us And so I'll tell you there is a way to do this So it's the antitrust law to fix it You do the amendment that the ambition and I worked on a few months back And you take it out of the FTC's head and you take it so there's a cause of action right to the courts itself without having to go through the FTC first And if you do that you're in a full on litigation mode And that's going to be a lot cleaner a lot more transparent It's going to be you're not going to have bureaucrats getting in the way and intervening this I mean there's ways to get at this But it is censorship I mean there's no other way
Rep. Andy Biggs on How Republicans Can Combat Biased Big Tech
"What can be done so that conservatives up in Congress up on Capitol Hill can actually conserve something and start fostering again an environment where Americans don't have to hide in the corner if they're conservative Well first of all you get session two 30 which will not cure all this but will help So you've got to reform section two 30 You also have to enforce the antitrust laws And the and as you enforce the antitrust laws they may need to have a slight tweak to get some redefining there But those two things would really go a long way here But I'd say the third thing that most people aren't realizing this is when you're married big government with big business like these tech companies and the tech companies are doing the bidding of your big government you have fascism And that's what you've been a victim of Dan even a victim of fascist form of government where the business is imposing will of this woke left stream administration So I think we have to go after these folks on an antitrust basis We actually have some support from Democrats on certain levels of this We just can't get them to do it the right way They want to and sometimes they attacking them they're actually making it easier for them to sensor conservatives And we don't want of course I'm
Rep. Andy Biggs: Biden Should Release Transcript of Phone Call With Zelensky
"Congressman so much to talk about here First what's going on in Ukraine right now big controversy last night on CNN CNN reports Biden had a really troublesome phone call with zelensky Big dispute about what was said Did Biden tells zelensky and invasion was imminent or not Listen what he said or not I don't know We don't have the transcript but you see the danger here congressman with the whole Trump phone call how the left wanted transcripts and you know we at the time said you know maybe that's not a good idea because then the president won't be conducting foreign policy if he realizes everything will go out in the press but you know what if that's the rule congressman they wanted the transcript on the Trump call I think Biden should have to abide by the same rule and clear up the controversy over what he told zelensky Your thoughts Amen to that We don't know what was said on the phone call And the Democrats were already trying to impeach president Trump before they even got the transcript So should we be engaged in an impeachment effort because he called this guy and it sounds like it might have been a troublesome phone call This is the outrageousness of what the Democrats did The new rules the newt the new tradition new standards that they created themselves and of course they're not going to adhere to the standards that they
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Visited Accused Jan. 6 Rioters in Jail
"Welcome back to one on one with Marjorie Taylor Greene. Marjorie, it's such an indictment of the business as usual, political establishment, not just the rhinos, but actually the GOP establishment that we've had hundreds of arrests. We've had the FBI chase down people who weren't even inside Congress on January 6th in Alaska. I've got friends telling me my friend was not even near Congress and they tracked her with the phone data. The phone company gave the geolocating data were you outside Congress, just insanity, the FBI hunting down these people instead of BLM or antifa. You are one of a handful of politicians, citizen politicians whose actually trying to get to the bottom of it and to fight for these Americans who are guaranteed by our constitution, a speedy, a speedy judicial process, you went to the prison, they refused you access you were so kind to call us after your visit for those who didn't hear your story. Tell us what you found when you went to this hellhole in D.C. where these people are being kept prisoner. I found something I never thought I'd see in our country. I found something that we've seen in movies and we hear stories about in other countries. I found out that what I thought was Internet rumors and not fully true, I found out it's all true. Everything we've been hearing is true about what's happening is January 6th defendants. Not only that I've talked to people who've had their homes raided by the FBI in the dark of night. I talked to one man and his wife, where they had handcuffed their child with handcuffed and she was dragged out in the front yard and nothing but a nightie and then the small town newspaper where they lived took a picture of her and put her on the front page of the newspaper, and that woman wasn't even in Washington, D.C. on January 6th. She was in California at home.

Those are the ones that have come along. They've been there every time, but they've definitely tried to. And I've tried every single time to get in. But finally, we went in, we were allowed for a tour of the whole jail. Well, I want to tell you we saw the whole jail. Except. Except the January 6th event in area, except the patriot wing. And then what did you do? Oh, I pitched a

"That's the easiest place to find the four my trips my photography that kind of stuff. I'm on instagram. Like everybody else. I'm the global photographer. All one word and right now. I'm going through a brand changed. The website will change a little bit over time to talk less about the trips with me. Maybe trips with others of the services. That i provide you as a traveller. Hey you don't have to come with me if you don't want to but i'll still still participate and setting it up for you and i have everything all laid out. You just have to get on a plane. Love that i love that. That's so enticing. Such a good idea too because that's the whole point of going on a workshop for a lot of people is it's it's the logistics of setting it all up the travel piece of it. The safety like yeah. I want to go to that area. But i don't wanna i wanna come back with all the limbs that i left with you know so you want to take all that out of the mix and it sounds like you're you're the person that's helping take all that stuff out of the mix so people can go to these exotic locations and come back with all of their limbs and some good photos right. Challenge that i've found is that people don't know what they don't know. And they don't know articulate that they say gosh you know people in life make decisions out of either love or fear right and you don't want to be making decisions out of fear you wanna make the from the left side like i love myself. I love my time out of nature. I wanna go on a trip as opposed to. I want to go. But i'm fearful of going because i don't know i don't know so. That's where i'd bridge the gap. I'm here to help you know. I do this all the time all the time. What twice you've done this once or twice And if people want to want to check out the bags either the tamarack ban bat or brand or this year. The greg your brand. Where should they go to different websites. There's split apart. Same parent.

"Yeah. i'm packing. The impact adjectives. Verb was one of them. And what was another one I'm just a bill. You know remember conjunction junction. What's your function good good. I'm not the only good all right. Well let's switch gears. I want to talk about your The other party your business so we talked about or one of the other parts. We talked about the workshops in the sort of concierge service that you're doing but also you have a line of very popular photography bags because you didn't have enough to do with the other stuff. No kidding so tell us for the people that may not know about these bags tells the brand and and why you built that side of the company. Ten years ago. I started a company called gura gear g. u. r. a. g. e. a. r. And we made really really lightweight bags on the market and these bags on this one right here ways under two under four pounds and it holds a ton of camera gear. We brought this to the market and became very popular and were definitely targeted towards nature photographers or wildlife nature photographers and a few years. Later there was an opportunity to buy tamarack out of bankruptcy. So gurria gear got pushed into the world of tamarack to try to rebuild the tamarack brand name and as of last year. It was decided. Hey let's bring gura gear back to the market. Let's split it back out and let let it let it flourish again. so that was december. Last year we brought out three different camera bags three different sizes. A big one. That's thirty leaders. For big huge cameras lenses we brought out a medium size which is for smaller. Esa lars and wireless murless cameras And will hold a laptop up to fifteen inch macbook pro and that we brought out a little tiny guy. This little little guy sixteen leaders. Now look at the yes donny. And this one is really four murless cameras and a thirteen inch mac pro onside here and holds ipads and the whole idea around. This is that there. are lightweight. Really really well built with the best materials possible made out of sail cloth material people use and racing yachts and it's got a butterfly design so it's two different sides that you can open and have cameras with lenses attached on either side and that design language. That's the same design language. That the all of the greg airbags have right that that kind of dual flap feel now. We call it the butterfly design so this has been really a labor of love extremely high cost of manufacturing so our prices are higher than others in the marketplace but customers absolutely love the ease and it's also a little bit of a business problem because they they're so well built they don't come back and buy more gopro problem it'll fall apart. There's there's some new products coming out on the market pretty soon and so the the line is expanding and so that that place in the market has been under served for years before we came around. Know this this high quality very low weight durable hammer bag but also that does something different in the having this butterfly design two different sides. Because you know in the past you go by bag and you have to unzip this huge zipper all the way round. The tongue opens off. And then you have to put your camera. That's attached to a lens down the middle. Then you have to shoehorn everything else around it. That's kind of stupid. So why not just shifted over to the side and you can have more than one camera attached to linz all ready to go at the same time. So that's that's how we solve it. Who who knew look at that logic applying logic to camera bag design. That's a it's funny. You live out in the bay area. I used to live there. I used to be a project manager. Doing software consultant. And it's just it's just an exercise and using your brain of testing making designs testing the market asking. What's going on. Make a few seldom see what happens. Get feedback make changes. Don't make changes order more love. It love it rigs have rinse and repeat right. So so what happened. To tamarack is is the tenth mark brand still going or did you did you. End of life that when or where. Where's it. Tim is still going. It just has a smaller product voglio than it did when we bought them out of bankruptcy. You know that that part of the market is still very valuable. It's still in retail outlets all around the world. You know places like best buy or or you know your big camera stores and so it serves very very very different area of the market more skews not a focus on lightweight. More focus on solving specific gear that you have or specific use cases of that of that gear all want to carry it. I want it here. I wanna carried here. I want to put it on my back. Fanny pack whatever So that that market is still strong. And this this. Greg year market is just a different different slice. I would like to call this the photograph market. These are your folks have really really nice camera gear that pay attention to quality are willing to spend more and get more and get a lot more these. This sail cloth material cost. I was doing the numbers. It's like six seven times the cost per square yard than the stuff that you're regular came back to made. Wow wow so that that bag and that bag seems like the type of bag with people by that. Don't want to buy another bag. It's like like a like bike like investing in a good tripod if you invest in a good tripod versus a cheap one. You're going to re that cheap one multiple times. You're going to keep that good one for a long long long time. Same with these bags right. Yeah what's happening here is originally. I came out with one bag. It was thirty two liters then eventually that that moved into having three different size backpacks well cameras have changed in ten years. More more people are selling off their esa lars moving to maryland camera systems and so those meritless cameras and also the lenses are moving into smaller and smaller footprint. So the bags needed to change to to accommodate so. Yeah and that's the nature of the business so we just changed. How the volume is is used. So this one right. Here is twenty two liter. It actually came down from twenty six leader and is not as deep to accommodate a laptop in the back because people just really wanna carry one bag. you can see this african main tag on it. Yeah i use my gear So that's what's going on. People are using smaller smaller cameras. They're not buying portrait grips or battery grips as often. They're not buying these. Big nikon defies wendy expert. Twos anymore. I mean they are but not on the same numbers. So we've skewed the product range to address that kind of shift in the marketplace. Well well listen. This is. This is fantastic. Man you're you're you're an inspiration because you're doing so many things and you're doing so many things successfully you make the rest of the rest of us look bad and sick.

"To include or exclude and then to position. Those subjects in the scene that tells the story and i put adjective at the very top retallack. Yeah it's really it's really. It's not that it's not that difficult so once i teach this to people and they go. Okay i'm not sold on his yardeni. It's fine let's just let's take some photographs so maybe they're going to photograph a flower gift currently they. They're going to photograph a person a portrait differently than they did before. And that's kind of what i'm trying to. I'm trying to push people push people to do something different and this brings another a friend of mine. Used to be a photo editor for national geographic. Coffee table books And he told me that you know when we put these books together. We're pulling from so many sources of stock photography. We're not commissioning photographs to be included in the book. So i have to take what's given to me. And i put everything in seven categories and if i can find all my photographs in seven categories. I'm going to be able to to to similar book. where when you turn the page. The next page doesn't look like the last page. There's no visual. Monotony says a widening. A sorry an opener a closer a wide angle and zoom a portrait macro shot and a special moment a special moment is defined. As a moment in time. That will never happen again. So so those seven photographs need to be shot. Both in horizontal and vertical. Tonight you have fourteen photographs and think about those law. You're thinking of adjectives at the same time that see those those. These conversations are the kind of conversations that completely alter the the the the generate those gotcha or that epiphany moment of okay. Here's a different way to think about my photography. That really sort of racks to focus a little bit tighter. So that that's awesome. I never thought about it from the from two standpoints of having a list of finite list of adjectives in your head that you're shooting towards that define the way that you want to interpret the world and then secondly taking that that vertical access and turning in horizontal in turning it into a stage in anybody that on the stage has to be there playing a role. You don't just have a car sitting on the stage for no reason. It's there for a reason if you if you go look back to like college age where you went to art. History classes we had we had these discussions around dominant and sub dominant subjects supporting actor supporting actor actresses and everything should play a role and that scene and it's up to us photographer to include their ex-cleveland one of the biggest things that drives me crazy as people start resorting to gimmicks or shooting styles to to Replace good storytelling. You know like we went through that stage where everybody had to have a frigging tilt shift wins. And they do it. It's everything was miniature. Hdr's well right okay but you know the stories still needs to be there the you can't you can't replace story with something else that's just the. Adhd are oh god you know we went through that early stage where people just win so crazy and you know. Let's go inside of a dilapidated building and start taking photographs woohoo cranking paint on the wall and the end of the day still just that. It's just it's it's it's literal. it's yeah i think. At one point. There agr became the equivalent of the The velvet painting with fluorescent paint on it. It was new. Was that the same kind of feelings you know. The garage sale of the black panther with the glowing is right now. But you know in the defense of the tool in the toolbox right so if used improperly you can screw something out but if used properly you don't even know it's there you know it was used to remember it's just supports your storytelling. That's all it is. It's just a tool. Yeah you know. I think i kind of went off the deep end with that technology out ten years ago and i. I think i was on twitter at that time. I said something like you know i said. Hdr's a lot like like riding. A scooter may be fun. But you don't want your friends to see you doing. We can see that about a lot of things. I've got a little bit because it made me. I think i projected the wrong my wrong opinions on. It's just a tool yup and if it's used wrong it's you know it's not you're not supporting your story and how you're trying to to build a bigger part of part of work you know. Maybe i'll take my photography too seriously. I don't think that's possible. I honestly. I don't think it's possible to seriously i mean i think you know it. I wanted to get your thoughts on this along the same vein the same vein of of of motivations for why people shoe so and i ask a lot of guests. This and that's that's the idea of. Why shoes are you shooting for therapeutic in our reasons. Are you shooting. Because you're trying to enlighten a particular topic in the public. I or on the other side of the the the the scale. Are you shooting for thumbs up and likes you know and those guide your photography and the thumbs up in legside. You know it's like i the analogy. I use the koi pond. you like. Oh they like this kind of bread. Let me throw some more of that in there and they eat it up right you though you. They like this kind of photo. I'm gonna make more of that kind of photo because they seem to like that versus just telling a story and feeding your own soul. Where do you fall on that well. I love asset question on these trips. And so i think answers have changed over time yet. I'm getting on my eye. Nature kanda centric. Trips as more people are getting into conservation and they are using the camera to tell a story to educate other people and the other partners may be guys contracts. I say guys because it's the answer is theory guy but Sometimes guys just love gear. Twenty use the gear..

"Week and photo workshops. And i want to send people to you. Know i don't know somewhere in ethiopia or someplace like that or let's make it even easier someplace that you've already been to and you've got relationships established there. I call you say andy. I want to do a workshop on these dates. And then then i feel the workshop. The onus is on me to fill the workshop. You do all the logistics. Everybody's happy i charge. Whatever the heck. I want to charge you. Get paid on the back in from the from the venues etc. And everybody's happy that's how it works. That's exactly how it works but actually it's a little more civil simpler than that. Because if i have a relationship review and befriends i'm might be marketing the trip for you. Oh yeah well. How do i get to be any big friend. We've been friends for over a decade is. I think we can leave. I've known you for for quite a while that we had a back when we had a normal government. I think i knew way back with north. Idaho there's no such thing as normal cooman. Let's switch gears a little bit. I wanna talk a little bit about storytelling. And and the the you sort of the missing x-factor in from my my stand plan you know you're sitting in the middle of this stuff you know running nose and we're running trips and you know we'll talk a little bit about your your bank company as well but you're in this world so you know this as well as i do that. A lot of photographers advanced amateurs you know amateurs and maybe even some pros are lacking the storytelling elements in their work in other words. It's here's a shot of a pretty picture. There's a pretty picture with a b pollinating on it you know and that's it. How do we go beyond that. Be to you telling the story you know of that. Be or of that flower. So i don't know how to answer that. Other than i'll just tell you my approach and what i teach people and it might help them. But you know i think one of the biggest challenges that people take photographs literally for the most part they say you know. Let's say you're a sports photographer. There's a picture on the mound and on baseball and he's throwing throw the pitch and people photograph that and it's very literal. it's it's it's It's what's obvious and that's a challenge because it doesn't it just doesn't transcend. It doesn't really tell you what's going on so often what people will do is. They'll take that one photograph that hangs on the wall above the fireplace. And that's really what they're after but sometimes they should consider taking a body of work to illustrate a story. It might be by photographs. That might be fifteen. It might be two hundred. The average coffee table photo book has bad one hundred twenty-five photographs in okay. So just just you have to get that out of you and my idea is that i take photographs of adjectives. Not things so. Photography by definition is the to graphics writing with light but the problem with that is is. It's just that's really all it is. And so i try to use adjectives and what that's done for me is. It keeps my my photography consistent over time. And as i am out in the field taking photographs whether it's two thousand and five two thousand fifteen two thousand twenty. Hopefully those photographs have leads together. So what i do. I have a list of adjectives that are in my mind all of the time. I'm trying to look for photographs. That are positive. Uplifting hopeful regal her roic timeless remote and those are all connected so. I'm i'm primarily african photographer. So let's say that. I'm photographing a pride of lions like an photograph from sleeping. I can photograph one when they put he made a male puts his head up when dennis face that's heroic it's very regal positive. It's uplifting sudden. let's say he snarls well that gets aggressive but kind of up though that out. I'm not gonna. I'm not gonna shoot. Then i want these more You know positive but say adjectives. And those are the ones that i choose and i string together so if you look at my photographs. I'm trying to tell a story to you a slice of reality. It's not the whole picture that that nature is beautiful. It's an harmony it's peaceful it's here roic and that's just myself i'm selling you a concept an idea okay and so so that storytelling has nothing to do with subject has nothing to do with color or black and white and has nothing to do with shooting style batches evolves downstream of those adjectives. So you know that. So what i have on safari and i'm teaching people how to photograph. Hey listen don't be so literal. don't just grab one subject in front of your lens and shoot it. You've got trees here. You've got grass rocks about other animals just because that animal is eating the other animal doesn't mean you shouldn't include the other animal. No it's thank. Think of a photograph or a scene. It's flat or its its three dimensional but really it's like a stage. Everything in that photograph needs to be there for a purpose. And there's a there's an. There's an implied relationship between all elements inside that scene inside that photograph. It's up to you as the photographer to include or eliminate using wide militias resumes. And you.

"In this interview. I'm sitting down with mr andy biggs we're going to be talking about storytelling in photography. A welcome back to another episode of this week and photo. I'm your host frederik van johnson. Today i'm talking with andy biggs. World traveler extraordinaire. We're gonna be talking about storytelling in photography and a bunch of other things that circulate around that as well as some new things that he's working on in his travel photography business in india. Big welcome to the show man. What's going on. thanks for having me back. It's been a while. I know life happens right. It's been a minute or two. I think last time we spoke. You had an afro or something. Now what's gone ten years. My friend know know getting so. Let's catch up so what what's what's going on in your world you know. What's what's changed in your photography life and you know are you. Are you still enjoying the world of clicking the shudder. Oh that will never go away. I love taking photographs and but you know from a from a photographic tourism standpoint. I've evolved a little bit. And i i. It's difficult to sell more and more time more hours and traveling overseas. so i'm basically augmenting my business and sitting people on safari in africa. Where i've got a ground crew in each country will they'll take care of you and take you to the best sites so now i'm setting up more customs as far as specific for your needs whether you're one person for people are maybe a camera club or family. So that's what. I'm doing a little bit different in my business but i'm still guiding with that and i love the book graphs. That is too cool. So i could call you up and say hey i want to go to botswana or wherever you know or do you have. Do you have a set list of locations. Where where you could send me to or do i just i throw a dart at the map into. I want to go there and you make it happen. It's i would say there are are very commonplaces that people wanna go because they have very very good brands of i say like the seren- getty of tanzania wildebeest migration the maasai mara. I wanna go see mountain gorillas in the those are very very repeatable places to send people to but every now and then someone will say. Listen i really want to do is self drive trip and have somebody at each location in namibia. I wanna go photographic sand dunes. Can you help me out absolutely. Yeah so i'm setting up that those kind of trips quite a bit these days. That's really. yeah yes really. It's really cool and it's making a lot of guys on the ground africa very happy because they've got more work because for years i don't wanna say i've been a competitor to them but i certainly had. I've kept all the business to myself. Who is an evolution of the this sort of traditional photography workshop. Where you know you meet your group you have like a meet and greet and then the next morning you're on a bus or something and you're out and you're shooting dinner that night. Rinse and repeat you know and then you know i. It sounds more like you're you're releasing the reins and allowing those people to kind of go out and explore and experience these places on their own without a net for for the most part and that's an evolution of the market. The the market has been. I would say it was very immature. When i started in two thousand and two. I was in very early. I was helping people. I was organizing trips to places that people really had no idea how to put a trip together and for the most part it's still the same but people need less and less photographic instruction. I've found what they want more or is either come rothery aspect or maybe just a little bit of coaching over their shoulder to say. Hey here's what's going to happen. Get ready for the shot. Here's some sample settings mabel maybe to check out and they're less interested in the. Hey let's work on light room at the end of the day with a beer and just kind of go through images that's becoming less and less useful people now. People want to explore at their own pace with their own budgets and perhaps with people like their family members are a significant other. That aren't into photography at all. They just wanna go. And so that's actually a big chunk of my business. Now there are. There's a lot of of supply of people running trips now. It's been this way. I would say for probably five or seven or eight years And that really hasn't. It hasn't affected my decision. And it's been more of you know. I've been traveling hard for seventeen years for twenty plus weeks a year and at some point you say whoa wait a minute. Yeah i turned fifty this year. It's time for me to change the business model little bit so that i can actually enjoy life a little bit other than being gone all the time. Yeah yeah i mean do you. Do you do one thing enough. You know you can get sick of you love steak but if you have it every night i love what i do. I'm trying to find a balance always. Well it's an evolution balance because you're changing. The market's changing people's tastes are changing. Just sort of keeping at the at the cusp. Zeitgeist of what people are looking for. And you know the irony art and all of this is. That is that as i decided to start being an agent and setting up more of these safaris all of my competitors that i've been competing against in the marketplace are now all my customers. I'm setting for setting him safaris for groups working great. Yeah so you like yeah. So that's the photographers the photographer that wants to run a travel workshop can come to you and say hey i wanna i want. Do travel works out to fill in the blank. And you handle the rest. They take the credit. You guys split the fee or whatever they pay your fee or whatever and we we talk actually don't charge a fee that's the beauty of this industry especially like saw. I set up a lot of trips in africa but also india bhutan and other places around that region That i get compensated by the property's not by the people want to buy it. Yeah so i. So there's no charge you know markup or anything like that on any trip that is up so let me get this straight so let me get this straight and so. I'm a photographer thing. Called this week and photo if i decided i wanted to. Do i wanna do this..

They're having no family. No nuclear family for. What are we doing with them so so. This is a really huge problem because a lot of this is blatant human smuggling some of it is eating related to sex trafficking so there's abusive things happen. Some inhumane things happening to children coming across the border. And i was looking at a cd. Showed me just a couple of weeks ago and as the border a picture a little seven year old girl actually show me a series of photos of kids coming across without without parents just put in the hands of these these these coyotes these these human traffickers they come across and they who knows they've been abused or not because we don't really fully bet checkout see because we have no way of finding these these individuals and you know what then we will return to somebody so a lot of will go to amman. Who's basically snuck in the country. Put her child in with these inhumane people enough united that we'd probably lose custody at our children but we reunite them with. There's also a lot of kids who come and we don't know where they're going and we don't follow them up so we'll play some with somebody a sponsor something. Maybe their relative maybe. They're not a lot of times they're not and we don't follow up on to make sure they're cared for even properly. So this is is a problem. That's probably the media see today. But it'll have a generational impact going forward. Yeah it's scary stuff congressman. I just can't believe the a you mentioned there too that this child sex trafficking worldwide. Obviously it's an epidemic but even in this country. I can't believe it's not the number one thing trending on twitter every day that there's kids that are being sex trafficked and it's not the biggest story of the day to me. That's mind boggling so Let me bring it back into you as a dad here. What type of disciplinarian would you say. You were as a dad and is that different than the discipline. You grew up with i. I was just in marshmallow. No i think i was. I guess my kids what they thought. I thought i was. I thought it was a pretty tough guy. But you know i tried to be here with the key for us was always make it a media if possible. Whatever you know corrective action you take and make it rationally tied to the to to the inappropriate conduct. I mean i would. I would say this even Peterson has said you know. Sometimes you're going to have to give a little pop on the bottom or something. And and we would sometimes have to pop on the bottom just to decorative actual their little. You're trying to guide them along. But i think we try to have a rational relatable discipline. And i'd say my parents were migrants would probably pretty. Well the same in. My wife's parents were pretty well the same as well. They were A lot of trust given tried to give a lot of trust to our kids. Yeah well said what about as far as family traditions. Do you have any family traditions. That you guys stick to year in and year out. I would imagine what the six of them getting everybody together. It's got to be quite a challenge at times. But what are your What does that look like for you. So for us are growing up was always a traveling with the kids as we always meet your child on. The other thing is always made sure that On christmas eve and christmas morning we had a. We had a set of traditions that we did. You know and we still try to do so if we're with our kids if it's only once you know maybe it's a son and his wife were still. I'm still going to get up on christmas morning. Literally make make cinnamon rolls into the whole thing like that that. That's what that's really cool. And obviously i think unfortunately our political atmosphere and countries become so toxic on social media and everything else. So i i mean how..

"And you know there's a lot of fun and you you realize it comes with a lot of responsibility you got got a little little person. You gotta take care. Yeah and you know what we have four kids. We had three boys got the girl on the fourth try. Otherwise i'd be catching up to you. But we got her on the fourth. Try for my wife. And i go in from two to three was the most challenging for us. What would you say of having to six. Kids what would you say was the most challenging transition. As far as the number of kids i think i think when we went from five to six was really a big big step because now you had to have a bigger car okay. Let's you gotta make sure you got all the seat belts and everything that you have. No it was. I think there was probably it because at the same time that you have this little infants you have got teenage boys that we were that were in sports and other activities in so you are just running all over the place trying to to meet the demands of everybody in the fan. Yeah great stuff. But what would you consider congressman to be the top values that you always hope to instill in your kids. They grew up. I think we wanted still a what i would say righteousness and faithfulness to god integrity to and and live your life. Honestly and in a sense have a sense of moral values of what is right and wrong and understand that there is objective truth and objectively right and wrong and and liquidator conscience and and the spirit of spirit christ quite frankly yeah very well said one thing. I talk about congressman on this show. All the time is the fatherless crisis that we have going on in the country so many kids are growing up without a dad in their life or a father figure living in the home. So i i. In my opinion social issue we have going on in the country. We're trying to solve all these other social issues but it so we strengthen our nuclear families. I think we're just going to be kind of spinning around in circles here are do you agree. Are you seeing this. And what can we do. Maybe from a political standpoint to start healing and strengthening. He's nuclear family units again. Well first of all. I do agree. I think i think the family is so important. I think fathers in the home and mothers in the home are really important. That's not to say that if you're single parent can't do great work and you can for sure but it is such as we talk about such a. It's it's a responsibilities hard work so it that teamwork is so vital. And also you wanna you wanna have modeling being done by foot by both fathers and mothers. It's so critical with with that in mind. Well i think it's a policy maker One of the things we wanna do is we. We need to lessen the burdens on families. I mean whether it's tax burdens regulatory burdens or the burdens of of The imposition that we put on those regulate on you from the government. Those tend to actually cause families to have to adjust how they live their lives and In government doesn't take into account that enough. I mean policymakers don't they they think of things like okay. Well this'll be good for the economy or will have a million new jobs or we'll have a million fewer jobs instead of saying. What is this due to the family out there and we need to be questioning that more because almost everything we do is as either an incentive. This pro or con and we need to be very careful. Careful about that. You have really good stuff. And i know arizona border state. I know we're having trouble with the board of here in one of the things a lot of these guys are just shoving these kids across the border and they're coming into the country with no parents. No father figure no mother figure. And i know that that's got to be treated. I just had a navy seal. Eli crane on the podcasts. He's running for congress now in arizona as well..

Hey everybody welcomed this episode of the charlie kirk show with us. Today is congressman. Andy biggs from the great state of arizona. And if i have anything to say about it we're gonna turn that place around congressman. Welcome back to the charlie kirk. Show charlie thanks to be with you. It's too bad what's happening to arizona politically. We'll talk about that in just a second. I want get into some of the breaking news. I had more people. Send me the story over the last twenty four hours and ask questions about this Around all sins monologue around this accusation but the government was involved in the events on january. The sex set there were paid government. Fbi agents allegedly amongst the. Midst a congressman. These are very serious charges and accusations. It's pointing to look like that's the case. What are your thoughts on this. Well we just had christopher wray come and testify to us this week. He testified in front of judiciary last week and to hear him speak. You would not have gotten that impression. That but i am starting to see the same information you are and it demands answers. I mean truly demands answers in fact when one thing that christopher racist to us yet Both last week and yesterday was that they were investigating people before january six but none of the people that are investigating even showed up on january six and none were arrested meant none participated in the january six Re breach of the capital so it is actually Very troublesome to hear what's out there and we need to get to the bottom of that yet. So in congressman. If there is truth to this. I think you need to start the bigs community joe committee just like we had the pike committee because back in the nineteen seventies. You remember this. This was a big deal where we were revealed. We had a slowdown intelligence committee. And that's where we found out about operation artichoke. Who are council pro all these different operations and ended up reforming the intelligence service for the better for the following decades. I mean these are some very potentially serious accusations that the bureau was in the crowd amongst this and they didn't do anything to stop it. Yeah i mean. If that's the case i mean it is there's always been allegations of the media being in there right i mean and we've seen some some evidence of that but if you have law enforcement that's there that could have stopped thwarted whatever and they didn't That's a problem. But moreover charlie i mean think about this The fbi director said that the vast majority of people that were peaceful peaceful protesters. Just they were rowdy but they were peaceful and were they infiltrating peaceful protest. I mean why why to. What would that be so so right now. We kind of were talking hypotheticals based on on some reports and information. That are coming out we need to. We need to actually to the bottom that because with we need clear answers in the clarity and where necessary there needs to be reform but also if necessary some discipline right and in addition to that congressman were they instigating were they revving up people to try to incites. I don't know. And i. Maybe i'm naive but when i find out there's as many twenty. Fbi agents in plain clothing amongst in a political rally for current president. That you think about this congressman. This is not some sort of far off thing that's happening in. you know. Just some small gathering in the hills and this was a rally for a sitting president and so. I'm glad that you share my concern with this Christopher ray i think has been lying about this for quite some time and this might be a threat that actually unfold. Something a lot deeper and a lot more Unfortunately sophisticated of what our government's been potentially doing infiltrate political groups and congressman. I got also ask. Have we ever actually been able to get any assurances. The fbi's been reformed with aided with peter struck and lisa page. And james. call me. Whereas durham and i know that you've been on this case to have any answers to provide our voters. Well well before he leaves next time. And then let's come to this. I would say. I want to know if there were twenty. Fbi agents and they were not there for put security for the president. Why were the kratz. Exactly right yeah. I mean 'cause i would expect there to be some security for the president and maybe implying close to make sure that the president is safe but if they're there for any other purpose and that's problematic okay. So where have there been reforms. I mean i could specifically ask questions of directory last week about about visor abuse. And he's oh yeah. Well we've got our own internal auditor. Now wait a second your own internal auditor That's like the hint. Garden the the fox guarding the hen house. Right isn't that right. I mean a little bit so so you. So i'm not inspector general to be there and to be.

"Dot com. Congressman Andy Biggs is here. Arizona audit. What is going on there? How about the January six investigations and so much more? So I hope you enjoy my conversation with the wonderful in the courageous congressman Andy Biggs to say about it. We're going to turn that place around, Congressman. Welcome back, Charlie. Thanks. Good to be with you. It's too bad what's happening to Arizona? Politically, We'll talk about that. In just a second. I want to get into some of the breaking news. I have had more people send me this story over the last 24 hours and ask questions about this around Tucker Carlson's monologue. Around this accusation, but the government was involved in the events on January the sixth that there were paid government FBI agents allegedly amongst the midst. Congressman. These are very serious charges and accusations. It's pointing to look like that's the case. What are your thought? We just had Christopher Wray come and testify to us this week. He testified in front of the judiciary last week. And, uh, to hear him speak. You would not have gotten that impression that but I am starting to see the same information you are and it demands answers. I mean, it truly demands answers. In fact, 11 thing that Christopher Wray said to us yet both last week and yesterday was that they were investigating people before January six. But none of the people they're investigating, even showed up on January 6th and then were arrested. None. None participated in the January six breach of the capital. So it is actually Very troublesome to hear what's out there, and we need to get to the bottom of that. Yet so In Congressman, If there is truth to this, I think you need to start the bigs Community Committee just like we had the Pike Committee. You know, because back in the 19 seventies, you remember this. This was a big deal where we were revealed. We had to say Slowdown Intelligence Committee. And that's where we found out about Operation Artichoke Operation Council pro all these different operations, and it ended up reforming the intelligence service for the better for the the following decades. These are some very Potentially serious accusations that the bureau was in the crowd amongst this and they didn't do anything to stop it. Yeah. I mean, if that's the case, I mean, it's one thing. There's always been allegations of the media being in there, right? I mean, and we've seen some some evidence of that. But if you have law enforcement that's there that Could have stopped thwarted whatever. And they didn't. Uh, that's a problem, but moreover, Charlie, I mean, think about this. Um The FBI director said that the vast majority of people there were peaceful, peaceful protesters just they were rowdy, but they were peaceful. I mean, were they infiltrating a peaceful protests? I mean, why? Why? To what end? Would that be? So so right now we're kind of we're talking hypotheticals, based on On some reports and information that are coming up. We need to. We need to actually get to the bottom that because we need clear answers, we need clarity and where necessary, there needs to be reformed, but also if necessary, some discipline. Yeah. Right. And in addition to that, congressman, were they instigating where they revving up people to try to in sight? I don't know and Maybe I'm naive, but when I find out there's as many 20 FBI agents in plain clothing amongst In a political rally for a current president. What you think about this Congressman. This is not Some sort of far off thing that's happening in, you know, just some small gathering in the hills, and this was a rally for a sitting president. And so I'm glad that you share my concern with this. Christopher Wray, I think has been lying about this for quite some time. And this might be a threat that actually unfolds something a lot deeper and a lot more. Unfortunately, sophisticated of what our government's been potentially doing to infiltrate political groups and congressman I got to also ask, Have we ever actually been able to get any assurances the FBI has been reformed. Well, they did with Peter struck and Lisa Page and James Comey. Where is Durham? And I know that you've been on this case. Do we have any answers to provide well, odors? Well, before you leave next time and then let's come to this, I would just say. I want to know if there were 20 FBI agents and they were not there for security for the president. Why were they in that crowd, right? I mean, Yeah, I mean, because I would expect there to be some security for the president, maybe in plain clothes to make sure that the president is safe. But if they're there for any other purpose, and that's problematic, Okay, So where have there been reformed? I mean, I was specifically asked questions of director Ray last week about About fighter abuse. And he said, Oh, yeah, well, we've got our own internal auditor. Now. Wait a second. Your own internal auditor. Um That's like the hand garden. The fox guarding the henhouse, Right? Isn't that right? I mean a little bit. So, so you so I want the inspector general to be there and to be looking at this thing and and when the inspector general has looked at it or when the FISA court has looked at it, and vices is that's how they spy on Americans, right? They have said that there is widespread abuse of the Faisal system and the Fisk the fifth the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. I don't know if there's been any reform. We still I was. I'm glad you brought up, Dermot. I literally this morning I was looking at a report. Um and I found myself saying, Where's Durham? Whatever happened to Durham, supposedly he was kept on after the Biden administration. But my guess is that the by administration has pulled the plug on whatever he was supposed to do. But how about at least giving us the results of what you had done prior to the change of administration? Seriously. And but just I know that I'm not into this. Like you guys are every single day is he? Is he still doing his thing like or did he disband his office? Or is he is this kind of like Kind of just like a multi decade excursion. Like I'm gonna I'll get back to you in the 12 40. You know, ostensibly my understanding is that ostensibly he's still test with this special prosecutor mission. But, um, over a year ago, Charlie, I was told Yeah, this Friday. They should have something, and then it didn't happen, You know, kept going every Friday that it's going to be out Friday. It's going to be a friend. What it never came came to be Charlie Kirk show where Truth lives ever wondered how free to access social media companies make all their money? By.

"Down the heat. The country is divided and healing. Maybe too high of an objective, But calming is something we can aspire to. So is there going to be calm on inauguration day because they're preparing Countries preparing for it like it's 9 11 coming around again. Yeah. I mean, they've got tanks. They shut down streets, you know. Reminds me of when you watch you like back in the seventies and eighties way replaces, like Kenyon. And you know Beirut stuff they've got Everything blocked off. They've got giant trucks in the way and as well as military to the tune of about 20,000. It is I'm not expecting really too much. You might get some protesters, which is their right to protest, But I think what we saw, which was a flash Quick kind of thing, even though it might have been somewhat planned out. The reality is I don't know. We'll see that again. Thanks for listening. What happened? Do C block the show. Where is the music video? Are you serious? Thanks for listening. The all Arizona Daily download. Thanks for listening. Dumb and dumber. Added again. Yeah, these s so here's the deal. If you guys have Interpol costar Who started the The That day in the House was the first person to stand up and eject. He's of course, the dentist. I would you know, it is what it is. He's from here on Andy Biggs have been linked with a guy who was saying who who started to stop the steel movement. And They're saying, Hey, guess what. These two characters were in on the whole thing, and they Also Not only helped with the rhetoric and the chaos and the craziness, but they also potentially could have been tour guides and played in inside roll. So think about it. There is a representative from New Jersey. Who says that she saw lawmakers. Give tours. Possibly to some of the mob the day before it all happened. Visitors aren't allowed in the Capitol complex, You know, since March since the start of Copan that has been shut down. All tours are shut down. That was true in the last Congress and was reiterated on January 3rd in the new Congress that there would be no tourists allowed even tours given by members. And some members. We're giving tours to people and the investigation has to figure out who were the members and who were the people that we're getting a tour? Because it looks to me like go. Sorry. Biggs have their grubby little hands around this whole thing and organized what took place. Last Wednesday. And if that's the case, they're going to get kicked out of office. And they they've made face criminal charges that one of the things it to other State representatives here may add to the dumb dumber, dumber and dumbest. Yeah, one of them's no longer lawmaker that you lost the election and the other one is and they're going to investigate potentially as well. But The reality is is ghosts are is just disappeared when it comes to Biggs. He's come out on a few times and he said, You know, I just know the guy he meets a lot of guys. You know when people out there But there's no doubt that you can. There's a chain with ghosts are in this alley. Alexander Olly Alexander, who did to stop the steel, who was who was alleging all this stuff, go. Stars brother David. Which which I certainly consider three and he got blood on his hands. His family hates him. Yeah, that's his brother. There is a daily download is brought to you by when your brother Marshall sounds plumbing love to go, You know, That's the thing that they hate him. The thing about something like that is is is like very member Mary Trump. She wrote that horrible book and everything. And then everything went quiet for a while. Then you found out she's suing. Him and everybody else because she wants like $40 million of oven. Inherited it. Something goes wrong when there's something like that, and you think money, I bet you somebody got more money than somebody else in something. Maybe. Okay, That's all. The family thinks he's a son.

"The Senate have have reconvened. Now that the capital has been cleared out. That does not mean that the protests the rally is ended. It is still going in full swing, at least at this hour of night. It's got to be cold over there. It's almost eight o'clock over there. And they're now going ahead. And I mean full steam with the certification of the electoral college. If this did anything today this storming of the Capitol building if this did anything It washed away the objections that were scheduled to happen today. Specially by Andy Biggs and Ted Cruz for the electoral results of this great state of Arizona. Now they're just going to rush it through overnight and away. Those objections go and that's the challenge with this, And that's why I asked James T. Harris. He disagreed. But then he condemned it anyways, because the reason why a large condemnation As a strategy works is because it lets the world know those aren't us. We might show up in protest, but we would never walk into the United States Capitol this because we know that the long term game there is none. We know that that does more harm than good, because as I mentioned what's gonna happen now is there already calls for impeachment? And Trump's only in office for 14 more days if the electoral college get certified tonight, as expected, like Mike just said, probably won't even be any objections. Now we're gonna be much tamer than they were earlier today around New Seadrill. Yeah, exactly right. So, with that being said If we say this is not us, because do you want this to be you? And that's that's my question. Whoever you believe started this anticipate. Oh, instigated this. Whatever. Is this what you want to be You? Do you want to be? Do you want that to be? You have a better question? Do you want this to be your kids? Would you want to see if I'm if I saw my son doing this out there with a selfie stick, and he's making all these field? Whatever. Jeez, Instagramming live streaming whatever he's doing. The Capitol building after breaking a window and taking on the Capitol police. I would fly there just to drag him by the ear all the way home as I'm berating that no, that is not who we are. It's not who we are as conservatives, that is that it's just night, so don't ask whether it should be you. How about your kids? How about your grand kids? If you're saying now would be honored to have my kids stormed the capital building, then I would simply say that you're doing more harm than good. Yeah, and to what end? I don't know. And that's what I don't understand. You're gonna walk in the Capitol building. You could sit in Nancy Pelosi's desk for what? Nothing changes. It's the opposite. Now more's going to change in the other direction, and that's the kind of the consequences of this and we have been condemning every other riot, every other storming of every other building. Any time something was burned down a small business. In Minneapolis and Kenosha in Portland and Seattle houses exactly right like that's our position. I mean, if we play this right, you have to force the Democrats and the liberals to do the same thing for the businesses that were destroyed in Kenosha in Minneapolis that still haven't recovered yet, by the way, And how about the courthouse is that were burned down in protest of what in protest that was for black lives matter that was to make their big Stage for criminal justice reform. So wasn't this a stage for an election that was stolen? Isn't that the same thing? See, we condemn that because they felt they were That what their treatment was unjust. So they burned the courthouse down because they're legal treatment was unjust. We believe that our election our last election was unjust and was rigged. And now we go do the same thing. We can't do that. You can't have both sides know and and that zoo good opportunity to lead and that's what this country needs. More of. It needs more leaders who were going to stand up and fight for freedom. And as we've been talking about here We're conservatives. My ultimate Belief that I believe in the most is freedom. Which is exactly why I love this country because we respect freedom. The soul's right to be free your right to pursue life, liberty and happiness. That's what the end game is for me, the more free the better. And the more we unite around that in speak on those terms and not get fighting about who was in the capital and not on whether they were this or whether they were that that's distracting to the ultimate belief that we have in this country because of the F word freedom. And the more we rally and talk about it in state together united about it and not fight about who's to blame today, because even if it was trump even there were definitely trump supporters in there. There's no denying that if we say Look, that's not us. That's not representative us. Just like BLM says the same thing. The black lives matter. Organization doesn't come out. Don't be like Oh, that doesn't represent say that all the time in the media kind of goes with that they'll never give us the same opportunity. The media won't In fact, already MSNBC's joy Reid is tweeting at the Capitol Police Let him in again. No evidence. What? Just because you see a video on Twitter doesn't mean much. It's as 12 2nd video on Twitter of police picking up a barrier. I don't even know where around the capital it is. Is it a sidewalk is in the street. Is it because they were trying to let people I don't know. They moved the barrier twice. But the question is, we don't know.
"andy biggs" Discussed on The Conservative Circus w/ James T. Harris
"Circus. I am your ring message. James T Harrison the centering the conservative circuits. We have congressman. Andy Biggs and congressman. You all are Suing Nancy. Pelosi for her proxy scheme. You explain what's going on with that. And what are the chances of succeeding at this at this suit? Well number one. Nancy Pelosi is implemented proxy scheme. So that you can get twenty People on the floor and they could actually represent a quorum and do business with up members of Congress being here. Look that is historically. That's wrong. I mean when they burn down the capital Congress met when they had the the Spanish flu epidemic with the killed almost seven hundred thousand Americans. One hundred years ago they met when they were In the civil war and there were battles all around the capital. Congress came in and met and did their business. But she doesn't want that because she gets power this way so We filed the lawsuit yesterday And you know what we can change our rules but you can't change the constitution. The constitution says we gotta be here. We've got to have a corn. We got to meet. We got vote we counter votes etc. And I think we've got good shot. I really do think we have a good shot here to get something done on this. This is kind of weird. Is Kind of disturbing congressman? I mean you have a bunch of Democrats. Basically giving their vote over to Nancy Pelosi here. You Go Nancy. Do whatever you want. And we know what their agenda is but instead of her trying to rally her troops get behind. The you know the bills that they're trying to pass basically she becomes a one man army. That's Kinda crazy. Well Yeah I mean this. That's right. It gives her a lot more power in the center. And think of it this way if you have to get two hundred eighteen votes then she's gotTa make sure that's cheater whipped team kind of lobbies to eighteen. But if she if she only has twenty forty fifty people that are coming in. It's a whole heck of a lot easier to kind of corral those people and then they're gonna the to do this. It's just it's just kind of a way to Give her more power. And that's that's ridiculous absolutely ridiculous. We'll keep an eye on that. Hope you're successful in that Congressman Biggs. Yesterday you tweeted about the president's understanding about phase of abuses and based on what we're hearing coming from the D. and I we we might know the full scale of those abuses soon. Is there any hope the Pfizer court? My go away anytime soon. Golly I wish there were I I you know I've got a bill. That does that very thing and most people need to understand. This is If you and I going to be spied on by law enforcement agency domestically they got to go to court They've gotta go get their search worked or their warrant to wiretap etcetera. Run the Pfizer Court. It's all done secretly and The the standards are are not the same so you don't get the same due process. There's not the same.
