After a year, omicron still driving COVID surges and worries
"COVID-19 cases are on the rise again in the U.S. and health officials are worrying about new waves of infections after Thanksgiving gatherings. It's been a year now since the omicron variant of COVID-19 was identified and again its jeopardizing the nation's health. The Mayo Clinic says cases are increasing already in Florida, Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico. And that's before holiday gatherings. The daily average for new infections this week is already over 39,000 and some 340 patients are still dying every day. A hospital in Phoenix is again creating COVID wards. One factor being mentioned, people are no longer masking up, and interest in booster shots has faded. I'm Jackie Quinn

Walmart Shooting: Manager Kills Six at Virginia Store
"Authorities in Chesapeake Virginia released an image Wednesday of the suspected shooter, they say gunned down 6 people inside of a Walmart where he was employed and injured several more in a deadly rampage authorities have identified the gunman as 31 year old, dumb, dumb, McDonnell DOM, Walmart previously told Fox digital that this dude was an overnight team lead and he's been employed with us since 2010. Chesapeake police responded to the Walmart on Tuesday night amid reports of an active shooter just before ten, 15 p.m. once inside officers began to evacuate the big box store, at least 50 people were inside, the building, according to police, three people, including his fool, were found dead, and an employee break room, another found dead, I need the front of the store, three other victims were taken to the hospital where they later died in total 6 people were killed and several others were wounded, employee, Breonna Taylor, said that overnight stock team of about 15 to 20 people had just gathered in a break room to go over the morning plans when shots rang out. She said, meeting was about to start and her team lead said, all right guys, we have late night ahead of us. When her manager turned around and opened fire on the staff, that's which is crazy. How many God dang? He was just shooting all throughout the room. She said, it didn't matter who he hit. He didn't say anything. He didn't look at anybody and he's specific type of way, a witness also told the news that she heard the suspect laughing at one point and that she believed that the shooting was planned.
Dr. Fauci Is the Most Fraudulent Person on Planet Earth
"Doctor Fauci is the most fraudulent person on Planet Earth. He's the most fraudulent person on Planet Earth. If you ask me my opinion, I believe he should be put behind bars for the rest of his life. Why do you say that Brandon? That's very harsh. To lie to the American people, deceive the American people, people have died based on his deception for whatever reason. Vicariously, he's responsible for turmoil, death, joblessness, people committing suicide because people like Doctor Fauci can't tell you the freaking truth. Won't tell you the truth about it. They won't even be honest that it came from China. They literally fought Trump on this point. Well, we don't know. You know it came from gain of function research, but you lied, then they lied and said you're supposed to work, you shouldn't wear a mask. Because they quote unquote trying to protect first responders and let them have enough masks so they don't run out. So they tell us a lie. How many people died because of that? According to the logic of Doctor Fauci, probably many people.
Colorado Club Q Shooting Suspect Is 'Non-Binary'
"Let's get on to some news. Colorado mass shooting identifies as a non binary. Now, I don't know if this person, and if you're not familiar with the Colorado shooting in Colorado Springs, a nut job went into a gay nightclub, called club Q or something like that, and decided to shoot up people, end up killing about 5 people and injuring several other people, but now that he's being presented in front of a judge, he's now identified as non binary. I'm going to try to read again because I think these articles explain a little better than I do. I'm not going to say the person's name because he's a scumbag and I'm not going to say scumbags names. The suspect in a daily Colorado LGBTQ nightclub massacre is non binary and uses they them pronouns. Their lawyer said in a new court filing Tuesday. This is so stupid. But blank blank is non binary, the footnote states, the Denver post reported. They use they them pronouns and for the purpose of all forms filed on all formal filings, we will be addressed as mix blank. So I'm not going to say his name, but it's mixed blank. So it's MX, so not mister with MR or miss with MS or MRS. It's MX. And I don't know if this is just adding insult to injury by a person being so fanatically against homosexuality and the trans stuff that he would go so far is to kill people, knowing that one day he will be in court and then in court adding insult to injury by just adding on to the foolery by saying that he identified as a non binary.
There's Things That We Have to Be Thankful For...
"There's things that we have to be thankful for. Do not forget to count your blessings. Don't let stress in the perception of depression to make you forget all of the wonderful things that God has done in your life, all of your great accomplishments, you've got to look at the good with the bad. But be thankful. This is your opportunity to be thankful. And I just want to give some context to Thanksgiving. I know a lot of people may not understand the true history of it. People may only think that Thanksgiving is about neck bones, collard greens, chitlins, at least that's what I remember Thanksgiving to be. However, my wife refused to cook me chitlins. But I understand they smell like crap. So she don't want to cook them. But anybody out there that know how good chitlins is when you put some hot sauce on it, especially y'all people from the south, you know what I'm talking about. I'll miss those chipmunk. But let me just read this to you. And I think this is very well laid out. My producer sent it to me and I think that it was pretty good. It says, let us let all give thanks to what we are thankful for. In autumn of 1621, Plymouth colony governor William Bradford urged his brethren to observe a Thanksgiving Day observations observance, I'm sorry, for God's harvest, blessings with pilgrims and Native Americans who helped him. In 1777, after the Revolutionary War, victory over the British at the Sarah Saratoga, the second Continental Congress declared that there should be a day of Thanksgiving.
Should We Be Harvesting Ballots? Razorfist Weighs In
"So if that's the sad reality of where you are in Arizona, where I am in the Commonwealth, what is the response? What did the good guys do? Because it's clear, the GOP, you say in your last video, the GOP knew this, didn't want to fix it apparently. What's going to happen? Is it going to be up to local actors, local activists to just harvest ballots where it's legal? What is the response to those who actually believe that oh, I don't know, are representatives should actually be chosen by the American people raise a fist. Well, I mean, come on, it was our fault. I mean, you saw Meghan McCain after the election. Shouldering her cruciform length of dogwood and saying, you know, the message of the election is if you run in Arizona, don't insult my father. First off, sweetie, John McCain wasn't even from Arizona. And second, I'd insult Biden and his voters, but I try not to speak ill of the debt. Frankly, I think what needs to happen is an adjustment of strategy as well as an understanding that the reality of elections has changed. Like I do like the idea of Republicans showing up en masse on election day. But it doesn't happen. But it's also very, very important, I think, that they not avoid early voting. That they not avoid mail in voting. And these unfortunately, I think some of these are strategic blunders from well meaning campaign managers all across the country that they are unfortunately exploiting. Look, the idea that election fraud is or ballot harvesting as a conspiracy theory is absolute lunacy on its face. It's
Razorfirst and Sebastian Discuss the Mechanics of Collecting Ballots
"I have drawn the following conclusions. Tell me if I'm off base or what's missing, raise the 5th. My take is the following. Where we have normal elections, let's say, two weeks of voting, we should do politics. We should campaign on a message, build a platform, get that candidate in front of as many people as possible and have rallies. Everywhere else, like Pennsylvania with 50 days, Virginia with 45 days. I mean, a Republican government, 45 days of voting, it's not about elections anymore, razor fist. It's about the mechanics of collecting ballots, not votes collecting ballots, and we just have to build that machine. And policies, platforms really don't matter because if Pennsylvania can vote for federman, then this isn't about politics. What do you think? Well, and some states come right out with it. They even venerate. I mean, California law venerates the practice, just explicates it is actually legal to ballot harvest. Right. Which makes it makes it a really tough sell in all the states where the Democratic Party is pretend that ballot harvesting does not exist and is a conspiracy theory. California doesn't seem to think so. They actually passed a law passing it. The thing that's hilarious about what you mentioned was Katie Hobbs, of course, the candidate that Carrie Lake was running against. It's bigger than that. People outside of Arizona only know Carrie Lake is the charismatic person that they've caught maybe an advertisement or a speech from. But here in Arizona, she had been a journalist and very, very visible here for over two decades. She was in the biggest markets from north to south for 25 years. She was a phase, right? Absolutely. And what's worse, her opponent was in charge of the election,
What Have We Learned and What Is Our Strategy?
"Says Charlie, this is actually a really good question. Charlie, what have we learned and what is our strategy? Look, a movement that does not adapt. A military that does not adapt. An organization that does not adapt will die. It's that simple. You must always constantly be adapting and improving. And one thing that we have to learn from is in Maricopa County, if we just all broadcast election day election day election day, it doesn't go well. You can sabotage ambushes all this nonsense. So instead, and I want to make sure I'm very clear about this. The ideal, the ideal way, how we want elections to operate is different than what we have to navigate. The ideal I would love to have a national day where everyone goes and votes. Voter ID, one day of voting, that's it. The way France does it, you know the winner by the election night, but that's not the world we live in. So if you live in Georgia, I would not recommend voting by mail. But in person early voting. In person early voting, go get your vote banked. We need the entire America first, the entire conservative movement in Georgia. I could tell you there's going to be shenanigans and nonsense and all of this, but we have got to get Herschel Walker across the finish line. This is the difference between the Democrats, having reliable 52 48 Senate or a 50 50 Senate. And with a 50 50 Senate, you're going to have cinema in a tough reelection fight and cinema with hopefully a tough primary challenge that seems to be bubbling up in Arizona with congressman gallego. And also Joe Manchin, who's going to have a very difficult race if he decides to proceed. Joe Manchin just might go become a lobbyist. Where it looks as if the popular governor justice might run Morrissey might run. There's a lot of different people in West Virginia that will keep pressure on Manchin. So this Democrat 50 50 majority won't really even feel like a majority.
Sebastian Is Joined by Razorfist AKA 'Rageaholic'
"Just tell us a little bit? I know you're on the front line of democracy or whatever is left of it in Arizona. But you have a rather unusual Mathieu, let's say, you are clearly into computer games in heavy metal, but you are one of the most sagacious political commentators on YouTube as far as I'm concerned. So how was razor fist born and what is this explain this melding to us and where you hail from? I am, of course, from the fiery depths. I am from Phoenix, Arizona. But I was always politically active. I started out in political radio. So actually video games and the heavy metal and all that is a relatively recent concern comparatively. I went to school for political science and I was actually I went to a prominent journalism school out here whose identity you can probably infer but it's named after somebody who's credibility perhaps is in doubt now in 2022. So yeah, but I got into politics first. I actually kind of got into this in reverse. Other people on YouTube, I think it's been the opposite where they've gotten more political as society is steadily descended into the lowest chambers of madness. So for those of you who are just listening and not watching, I have to explain to you that this man's persona. He comes on YouTube, classic bikers jacket. The classic black bikers jacket with the studs with the snaps. A heavy metal or gamer T-shirt, long black hair, and the mirrored sunglasses it essential. I know that when he's off, he is in a three piece tailor made suit. We know this to be true. My drones will confirm that momentarily.
What Changed Overnight in Arizona? Jake Hoffman Explains
"Jake Hoffman is with us. So Jake, I was illustrating the point that something changed overnight. What do you think that would be Jake? It feels as if somebody might have intentionally sabotaged there is no other explanation. What are your thoughts? Well, Charlie, there isn't an explanation. And look, I want to go back to something you said that it was, you know, some say the number 63% of machines weren't tabulating correctly or were malfunctioning. Some say it's 48%, some say it's 30%. Look, the simple truth is whether it's a third of machines affecting voters and disenfranchising voters or half of machines or two thirds of machines disenfranchising voters. It's an absolute assault, a vicious assault on our democracy from the very establishment rhinos from the very leftists that say their job is to protect democracy. The reality is that they're the ones executing an assault on democracy by seemingly seemingly allegedly purposefully disenfranchising voters. The voters that they don't like. Because they knew the numbers were going to be overwhelming. Exit polling showed upwards of 85% of de of voters were voting for America first candidates. Those were the very people that these same election officials had started a political action committee to oppose in their personal capacity. This seems like a direct assault on not only our democracy but on our republic and it can not be allowed to stand.
Arizona State Senator-Elect Jake Hoffman on the Latest Out His State
"Us right now is Jay Kaufman. He is state senator elect. Is that right, Jake? You're now a state senator, is that right? That's correct. Congratulations. I didn't know that. So Jake, I was looking at those Queen Creek precincts and they voted very nicely for Carrie Lake. I wish every precinct in Maricopa and pinal voted that way. So Jake, what is the latest in Arizona here? There seems to be a fight around certification. There's a lot of confusing information. Do you think that Katie Hobbs and governor doocy should certify this election? Well, Charlie, thanks for having me on. You teed it up perfectly. There is a lot to still be thankful for. But in terms of this election, we are watching the most incompetent shoddy election that has ever been run in the history of our country, unfold right now. And no, there is no question in my mind that it should not be certified by Doug ducey. It should not be certified by Katie Hobbs, which to me is a conflict of interest regardless. You know, tens of thousands of voters were directly disenfranchised and millions of voters or disenfranchised by extension. And so right now, what we're seeing is, look, this is coming down very explicitly to carry Lake and her legal team, Abe amade, and his legal team, Tom horn, and his legal team, and attorney general, attorney general has an election integrity unit that the legislature set up in 2019 for specifically situations like this and it needs to do its job. Now, they've started, they've done a great job so far of outlining the litany of issues that exist with this election, but they need to pursue this with the full force of the attorney general's office. And I get it. That's politically that's difficult. It's the holiday season, you know, he's on his way out of office, but he has to understand that this is not about a particular candidate or a particular election. This is about the most foundational element of our republic,
What Is Happening With the Midterm Results in Arizona?
"What is happening with the midterm election results in Arizona? I think many of us know that that was a, let's just call it a deeply flawed election far from the most secure election in history. And the results there's some question about whether they're going to be certified. The most important development here is that the Arizona attorney general's office. This is Mark barnova and also his assistant attorney general, Jennifer Wright, they have essentially called out miracle book county. They've produced a demand and they've said, look, we've got hundreds of complaints. This is their quote, since election day. They go, this is firsthand witness accounts. So these aren't speculation or people who say this might have happened. These are people who were there. And by the way, there was a squadron of Republican attorneys there and many of them have also personally testified to what has what went wrong. So what did go wrong? Number one, the breakdown of these tabulation machines. A lot of them. There's some debate about how many, but it looks like there were tabulating machine problems in 70 voting locations. And somewhere between 25 and 50% of these tabulating machines were not working. Now, here's what's weird. They were working for early voting when the Democrats were showing up to vote. They were tested right before election day. They were supposed to work, and then they didn't work. And they didn't work right at the beginning, so starting in the morning and continuing for most of the day. So tons of people were discombobulated, frustrated, in long lines, some of them basically discussed went home, so within 30 minutes of voting these problems began.
Malcolm Nance Is Right—Far Right Republicans Want to Kill Americans
"I hate that every time we have to talk to you, there's something that's proves you're right that is not a good thing. Someone just tweeted as Malcolm nan says they want to kill Americans. You tweeted, you know, after the Colorado Springs stochastic terrorism, Kerry lakes doing it in Arizona. Kerry lakes lies force Maricopa County election official into hiding with a torrent of death threats. I mean, Malcolm, it just feels like one long unbroken story. January 6th, the Paul Pelosi attack, you know, and they just don't stop. You know, they don't stop in terms of targeting people, Mike Pompeo just called the head of the teachers union, the most dangerous person in the world. Wow. Really? Yeah. I mean, I saw that yesterday I was absolutely stunned. Well, yes. And they want to kill Americans, and they are now encouraging other Americans to target other Americans. And the worst part is we are just getting started. Things are going to get much much worse. And I'm going to give that to you straight, no chaser. This is a pure, very obvious intelligence analysis that now because they won the House of Representatives. They feel not just empowered, but emboldened to go after their enemies. The good, you know, to a gay nightclub and shoot all the patrons. You know, to the point where, you know, families were there. They just, they have been told over and over again that liberals, liberalism, you know, education with the case of Randy Andy Randy weingarten. That's insane. Yeah. These people have decided they are going to embrace the potential of violence or actual violence and calling out their enemies so that this, you know, the crazy criminal crusaders will all come out and start killing them.
Charlie Welcomes Terry Schilling of the American Principles Project
"Welcome back to the program. Hey, thanks so much for having me, Charlie. So Terry, there's a lot of news to go through here and Terry, you run the wonderful American principles project to do a great job. Talk about some of the work you did this last cycle first. Well, we were up and running in several of these battleground Senate states, Arizona, Nevada, Wisconsin, Michigan, even and we were running campaign as educating American people, the American people about the threat to our kids, especially as it comes to transgenderism. We ran a lot of ads on women's sports. But this year we did something new that we haven't done before. We ran ads educating Americans about these transgender surgeries, the hormone treatments, and just the overall gender indoctrination that the left is doing to our kids in schools, and we produce really powerful ads. Charlie, we spent almost $15 million this cycle. It's something I'm really proud of because frankly, and I think you probably don't aware of this. The pro family movement has done a lot of great things and been good at a lot of things, but they've retreated from the political battlefield. And that's what we do in American principles project is be fill that political gap for the family. And we win campaigns and elections for them. So we're still reading on the results for how the impact that our ads had on the electorate. But we know that where the Republicans and the politicians that really leaned into these culture war issues and went on offense, they won by huge margins, right? Like look at Ron DeSantis, he won by barely half of a percentage point in 2018. He takes on Walt Disney corporation of all people. And wins by almost 20 points. Mike dewine in Ohio signed a heartbeat bill into law. He wins by 35 points. These guys that actually went into the culture war and led on this stuff. They were rewarded handsomely at the polls. And we need to get rid of the Mitch McConnell's of the world and the mccarthys and the Tom emmers, and we really need to start rewarding our guys when they fight for us because these guys want to keep us from fighting. It's been a disaster.
Charlie Learned THIS Lesson From His Midterm Messaging
"Larry says Charlie, this is all your fault. You told people to go vote on election day. I blame you, shame on you. Okay, look, you got to defend yourself. Okay? I'm not trying to belabor a point here, but you got to be very precise if you're going to attack us on this. Okay? I said, I was going to vote on election day, but repeatedly we did warn on this program, and it's a learning lesson that I should have done even more and should have been more insistent that there's going to be a traffic jam on election day and we should entertain in person early voting. This is one of many clips. This is one where I did a Salem radio network event. In the valley in Phoenix, Arizona, and Scottsdale I'm sorry, trying to warn about what was coming on election day, play cut 44. But there's something I'm very worried about that all of you need to get serious about and you guys believe a difference. How many of you plan to vote on election day, raise your hands? Yeah, this is going to be a problem. Maricopa County can not facilitate all of you. I'll tell you right now. They are creating a traffic jam. And it's going to deter conservative turnout. So we got to fix it. I'm telling you right now, we are going to see three, four, 5, 6 hour waiting lines, a miracle of the county, and may solve a good year in sun city. And unless you're ready to waste 6 hours to go vote, then we got in there this time. So how do we figure it out? I'm not a fan of mail in voting at all, but in person early voting should not be discounted unless you want to wait three or four hours in line. I think we are going to see a traffic jam designed by Stephen richer designed previously by farm tests that criminal that used to be in there. And there we are. And so just, I wish I would have been more, I wish I would have repeated that even more.

Arizona to Investigate Possible Voting Violations
"The attorney general has opened our attorney general's office, has opened an inquiry into the Maricopa County's handling of the midterm election. Demanding a full report will publicize full report of the well publicized irregularities and warning there is evidence of statutory violations. Now, I live in Maricopa County. I know what's up here, and what they did in this election, whether through them being egregious, whether they didn't be a malicious, or just plain stupid, it doesn't matter because the disenfranchised a lot of people who were showing up to the polls to vote are right to vote. We have statutory laws in place to make sure everybody have a fair opportunity to vote. And just because you want to vote on election day, that may be the only day you can vote. It doesn't mean you have an opportunity to disenfranchise you. There is no way whatsoever that you can claim that an election was fair, you know, cheating the was it fair, you can't say that the election was fair when people showed up to the voting booth and the machines wouldn't work.
"arizona" Discussed on The Morgan Zegers Show
"Thank you guys. All right, so I just before we get into the big topic, everybody wants to hear about it. Trump versus desantis. We're going to go over all of that jazz. But before we do that, we have an interesting update in the Arizona situation over there in Maricopa County. Now, I had no idea that this, but most of the people in Arizona live in Maricopa County to over 50% of the state's population live in this one county. And the county is saying, well, we can't possibly get the election results, not just by the end of the week, at first they were saying, you know what, even though election day is was Tuesday, we're not going to be able to get you results until Friday, maybe, then they said next week. And then we heard talks of we're not going to have official confirmation on numbers until the freaking new year. So it's a little frustrating and you can imagine that if every other state and if every other country in the world that has functioning elections is able to carry out an election process and then get the results on the same day then why can't this county in Arizona and why is it happening in a county that is so highly important and contested, especially when you see the polling and the success in terms of the grassroots efforts of the candidate Carrie Lake. So this is definitely something we've all got to keep our attention on and here is the latest update that we have a video that I found of the news interviewing the election official who is in charge of what's going on over there. So I'm going to play it, but you're going to listen to it and you're going to notice he says something pretty nasty, he says, you know, I'll tell you an estimated date of when you'll have the results, but you can't hold me to it. Yeah, because there's no accountability in modern day American politics, right? Real quick, can you ask Bill when he estimates or estimates those votes in Maricopa County will be counted? Yes. Yes. Well, you know we do this to you every day, and I'm just going to have to do it to you again. When do you anticipate the votes will be counted in total, those 400,000 plus votes? Well, we have, we will be going into next week. There's some onesie twosies, again, pursuant to Arizona law, but I think that we'll see the lion's share here wrap up by early next week. Early next week, can you give me a day or we're talking Monday or we may be as long as you won't hold it to hold me to it, but I think that's what we're looking at this point. Again, given the number of ballots here, the Arizona laws that we have to follow in the fact that accuracy comes first. There you go, accurate accuracy comes first. Just telling us, look, it's probably going to be early next week. We knew that I think you thought that maybe Friday 95 to 99%, but that has changed, partly because there were so many people who came in and dropped those ballots as early ballots off the day of the election. So that's where we are. And I promise you, we'll give you the information as soon as we get it, there will be another count that happens. I think this evening and an announcement. Back to you. Okay. Okay, yeah.
"arizona" Discussed on Fresh Air
"That people who are on patriotic people who she deemed to be enemies of America that gallows, new gallows needed to be built for them and that they needed to be executed in public. And that was among the most inflammatory inflammatory things she had said, but far from the only one and it caused her own colleagues in the state Senate to decide that she had gone too far and to censure her. Still in all, she defeated in the August the second primary, another ultra conservative and election denier Kelly Townsend who no moderate herself had said that she was convinced that there would be people to try who would try to steal the 2022 election and that she was exhorting people to monitor anyone who looks suspicious to follow them to their cars. She warned that people would be taking down their license plates. And so Wendy Rogers, getting to the right of Wendy Rogers proved to be impossible for Kelly Townsend. But Rogers, though she would appear to be a total outlier, really isn't in the sense, first of all, that she is a favorite of Donald Trump and whenever Trump comes to Arizona. He mentions Wendy Rogers. And that secondly, I mean, what she is essentially employing is just the most hot blooded this one goes to 11 kind of rhetoric that still is basically the staple rhetoric now of Arizona. She circulated a petition that legislators from, I believe, 25 or 27 states have signed all saying that they will do audits of the 2020 election with the intent of invalidating the election. So though it may, the her rhetoric itself may be extreme her acts have been embraced in Arizona and beyond in right-wing circles. Let me reintroduce you again. If you're just joining us, my guest is Robert Draper, and his article the Arizona Republican Party's anti democracy experiment is published in The New York Times Magazine, the article is already on the website. We'll be right back. This is fresh air. This is fresh air, let's get back to my interview with Robert Draper, his article, the Arizona Republican Party's anti democracy experiment, about the party's move to the far right in Arizona, is published in The New York Times Magazine and is on the website. So when we look ahead to November, Kelly ward is now the chair of the Republican Party in Arizona. And she's an election denier. Mark fincham is the Republican candidate for Secretary of State, which oversees the election. If he won, and she remains the head of the Republican Party in Arizona. What are the possible ways that could shape the way the election is conducted and what the outcome is?
"arizona" Discussed on Fresh Air
"What's your understanding of how the far right came to take over the Republican Party in Arizona? Was a part of a larger Republican strategy that was well funded by the RNC, was it more of an internal movement in Arizona, partly from the actual grassroots? Well, so there was some funding done by right-wing organizations that were homegrown that the preside in Arizona. But a lot of it, Terry was also complacency on the part of the establishment and they had been asleep at the switch. It was described to me and the people who control politics at the very base, the so called precinct committee men and women. Those positions were just kind of occupied by status quo people, but then over time, far right people began to run for those positions and they began to take them and then they began to espouse. Certain things that were incorporated in the party platform. And then ultimately in the beginning of 2019, Kelly ward became this grassroots maverick who launched this improbable campaign after having lost twice in U.S. Senate candidacy first against McCain in 2016 and then in 2018 against Martha mcsally. And the grassroots supporter and she took over the party. And the moment that that happened, the party was all in with Donald Trump. She visited Mar-a-Lago. She made sure that Trump was aware of her and the Arizona party's loyalties to Trump. She changed the name of from the Arizona Republican Party to the Republican Party of Arizona, a rather subtle distinction. But one basically intended to say to the establishment, it's not your party anymore. And so now the party very much reflects her and the grassroots activists who have come to take it over and they have written and passed recently something that essentially invalidates the 2020 election or says that we do not recognize its results. So it's really as radical right as any state party can be. In America. And it would be in its own curious way and a kind of cool expression of democracy because it is very grassroots. This did not come from a country club. It did not come from a smoke filled room. But for the actual positions that they take and the actual philosophies that they espouse, which are fundamentally anti democratic. Let's take another break here if you're just joining us, my guest is Robert Draper, he's been covering conservative politics for about 20

"You would think that the given all of that, the Republican Party would descend into meditation and figure, you know, wow, we've got to do something to get those voters back. Well, everything we've been talking about is in fact an indication of how they've repudiated that notion. And have thought far from us to far from any desire to moderate, we're going to purge those people who would even think about moderating who to us are moderates that would include our sitting governor Doug ducey, who was in fact censured. That would include the Speaker of the House, rusty Bowers, who, along with doocy, refused to go along with this notion that 2020 had been stolen, he too was censured. He also was beaten in the primary, really thrashed by a far right opponent. And for that matter, they have censured the wife, Cindy McCain, the wife of John McCain, who was this icon in Arizona Republican politics. So despite these demographic changes that are taking place or perhaps because of them, perhaps in digging in their heels. The Republican Party has moved farther right even as the state itself has become as one of its local pollsters, noble calls it magenta, the lightest shade of red. So do you think that's likely to hurt the Republicans, chances in Arizona in the state elections? We will see. I mean, that is the $1 million question this November because the headwinds facing the Democrats are considerable. Mark Kelly, the U.S. senator, is up for reelection. And he is certainly vulnerable, or at least one would expect that he would be vulnerable, but now he'll be running against a guy named Blake masters, who was a protege of the venture capitalist Peter Thiel, who he owes a 2020 election denier whose campaigns signs that I saw festooning the highways of Arizona said things like Blake masters as U.S. senator will prosecute Fauci. Blake masters as U.S. senator won't ask for your pronouns. And so whether that kind of culture war rhetoric is going to deny the Republicans a real opportunity to pick up a seat remains to be seen. It's also the case we were talking about Carrie Lake earlier and Lake is a formidable presence because she's been a member of the media for a long time. She was a local Fox host for several years in the Phoenix area. Very poised and can really hold the audience. But her rhetoric regarding, I mean, it's very, very, it's very party of retribution. Lots of swaggering gun talk and we're not going to let them California. The California scum are not going to take over our party. Whether that's going to play remains to be seen, if it does not, then the hope among Arizona establishment Republicans that I talked to, their hope is that they will then be able to say, okay, have you learned now? Have you learned that trumpism that maga ism that going all the way to the right and embracing crazy conspiracy theories is not going to work because we should have won these elections and instead you handed it to them with your hot blooded rhetoric.

"This is fresh air. I'm Terry gross. Let's get back to the interview I recorded yesterday with Robert Draper. His article, the Arizona Republican Party's anti democracy experiment about how Arizona state politics have moved to the far right in the Republican Party. That's published in The New York Times Magazine and is already on The New York Times website. Draper's next book will be titled weapons of mass delusion when the Republican Party lost its mind. That would be published in October. Robert Arizona is a swing state. And that makes what happens in Arizona. Super important. But there's like swings and two directions at the same time in Arizona. You've got the Republican Party moving to the far right. At the same time you have a lot of people from California, moving to Arizona, and you have two democratic U.S. senators from Arizona, so can you talk about those simultaneously opposite directions? Sure. I mean, Arizona as you mentioned Terry is a state that because of its low taxes because it's sunny to say the least. Has attracted a lot of out of state visitors and in particular they are moving to Maricopa County, the mega county that includes Phoenix and really where I think something like 60% of Arizona's overall electorate is. These people have brought with them. Their own values and some of them come because they are very much in step with, say, Arizona's Republican Party values. But others are not. And the actual phrase California is used on websites and other Arizona conservative memes to express the sort of existential anxiety that a lot of Arizona conservatives feel about their values being taken over being subsumed into California values. So there's a lot of tension there, but the reality remains that Arizona, as you mentioned in 2020, became a bona FIDE swing state. It swung over to Joe Biden, albeit by not many votes at all in about 11,000 votes. And that was in large part because the suburban voters in the rings suburban areas around Phoenix were turned off by Trump. And so in the face of that reality, in the face of the fact that, as you again mentioned, the state of Arizona has two democratic senators, has a razor thin Republican majority in both the state House and in the state Senate.

"I don't know why people are saying we're a democracy. We're a constitutional republic. Quit saying we're a democracy. And the first I thought, okay, maybe this is some kind of snarky point of scholarship they're trying to win. But I began to realize, no, that's not at all. They actually have come to view democracy as a sort of offending object that democracy is a bad thing. And I began then to ask some of these activists about it. And one of them said to me, well, to me, democracy means that if you get one vote more than 50%, then you get to have everything. You get to come and take my property. Property, in this case, being a proxy also for you get to change my way of life. You get to change the school curriculum. You get to tell my child what gender they happen to be. Now how that has come to be equated with communism is unclear to me, but it is also true that along with these assaults verbally speaking at least. But legislatively as well on democracy. The word communist has been bandied about in ways I hadn't heard since the 1970s, I suppose. And where, again, Carrie Lake and Blake masters the U.S. Senate candidate Mark fincham and others on the Arizona slate really up and down the ballot. Frequently refer to their enemies as communists. Communist is now the ward that is most galvanizing in most attention getting. So like a really ironic thing about this fight against communism that the far right is doing now is that a communist country Russia has been retweeting social media from the far right. So they're in their own way almost aligned with Putin, so don't you think it's strange that they're the ones who are decrying communist infiltration of our country? Yes. Yeah, no, it's certainly paradoxical. It's also paradoxical that this very rock ribbed conservative Republican Party in the state of Arizona is so prone to Russia disinformation. And I had that said to me over and over by a number of longtime Republican operatives who said, you know, I think that Arizona is in the top 7 or 8 or 9 when it comes to the number of the percentage of its population that is senior, that senior citizen. They have a lot of retirees that live in Arizona. Those are people who have a lot of time on their hands, and so a lot of them sit on the Internet, they're on Facebook. And they're reading a lot of things and amongst conservatives who have come to reject the so called mainstream media. They're very, very prone to information that confirms their biases. And they don't exactly fact check this information. So much of it has in fact come from, or at least been amplified by Russia based social media, according to these Republicans that I've spoken to. And it's also very enemy of my enemy. I mean, I think that Trump has been accused, had so many associations with Russia he and his campaign operation and thus was accused of somehow being intertwined in a very unseemly way with Russia that the left has in the eyes of conservatives has launched that argument means that maybe there's something not so bad about Russia.

"And so they essentially believe that the left has overtaken our society and when I came to realize and going to a lot of their campaign events and listening to people talk about them and listen to the questions that were being asked is that they feel that ever since the 2020 election in their view was stolen from them. Again, I viewed that as not supported by any evidence. That democracy essentially has been weaponized against so called regular Americans and that democracy is now an evil thing. And so the rhetoric that I heard Carrie Lake, for example, employ about godlessness, the godless left. And how we need God guns and glory. It's really reflective of a different era, specifically the 1950s. And during the so called red scare, featuring Wisconsin U.S. senator Joe McCarthy, whose name I actually heard invoked not once but twice at one event in prescot, Arizona, where one of the speakers and oath keeper and a grassroots activist said that Joe McCarthy not only had it right, he understated the matter. And another individual said to me that she wished that Joe McCarthy were president today. And I don't know that knows much of anything about McCarthy, but she, on others in this rather extreme slight of conservatives who were moved on to the general election after the August 2nd primary, essentially are a spousing sort of dark and paranoid and anti democratic worldview that was promulgated by the Wisconsin senator throughout the 1950s. Yeah, I mean, Joel McCarthy was the most famous of all of the communist hunters during the communist witch hunts. And he would smear people who he alleged were communists. They'd be blacklisted. They'd lose their career. They'd lose their income. They'd become outcasts and some circles. And a lot of people's lives were ruined. Because of that. So to think that, oh yeah, he should really be the president now, which is what one of his, one of the people you spoke to said is just really shocking to me, but the other thing I really don't understand is, you know, communism in America doesn't seem to me like a particularly real threat. Who supports communism in America? Yeah. Yeah, to me, I'd rather dispiriting phenomenon that I had not expected to encounter until I started spending all this time in Arizona was to go to these grassroots events and to hear individuals sometimes candidates sometimes precinct committee members who constitute the sort of activist base of the Republican Party in Arizona. Proactively just say, you know, we're not a democracy.

"Also the case that a couple of years before them in 2018, Hoffman was, as he still is, the head of an organization called rally forge, which is a Republican media organization. And they were tasked by Charlie Kirk, who is the head of the Phoenix based conservative youth activist group turning points USA to develop what is essentially a troll farm to send out misinformation and disinformation to try to dissuade Democrats from voting as Democrats and to consider voting for green party candidates instead. So as to so as to diminish the Democratic Party's prospects in 2018, they used, in some cases, teenagers in this troll farm, and so Hoffman also, during that election cycle and then in subsequent election in 2020, said so many untruthful things that ultimately his Twitter Twitter account was banned. Again, far from this having any political political repercussions, it has just made him another warrior and the far right. And as you mentioned Terry as a state representative, he became the vice chair of the elections committee and now has won a primary to be state Senate and is in all likelihood will become a state senator. And you mentioned his disinformation campaigns. Apparently Russian trolls from the Internet research agency retweeted a lot of the social media that he put out. That's correct. The Senate select committee on intelligence did a study of Russia and disinformation and a curious entry in that is Charlie Kirk's Arizona based turning points USA and how the IRA, as you mentioned, ceased upon a number of the memes that were put out by turning points and rally forge and amplified those the IRA did. Believing that it would, and it's sort of furtherance of anti democratic goals. And so presumably unwittingly, Hoffman and Kirk and their respective organizations became a cog in the wheel for a Russia based disinformation. Sure. So of all the people who won in the Arizona Republican primary. You said they all believe that the election was really fraudulent and that Trump should have been reinstalled as president. What are some of the other beliefs that they share? They share an aversion to say the least. Towards mask mandates towards vaccines. I suspicion bordering on paranoia and accusatory rhetoric relating to the vaccines themselves and whether they're doing more harm than good. They believe as well that critical race theory has invaded our classrooms that there is a kind of gender ideology such that our children are at risk of being essentially encouraged by the left to change their gender on a whim, they believe that in the classrooms our children are being taught to as Charlie Kirk put it to hate America and hate themselves.

"Gross. In his article, the Arizona Republican Party's anti democracy experiment. My guest Robert Draper writes that Arizona first turned against the establishment now it set its sights on democracy. The principles, the process, and even the word itself. He's been following Arizona state politics for the past year, and watched as election deniers and conspiracy theorists beat their opponents in key Republican primary races, including Secretary of State, the position that oversees elections. Draper has been covering conservative politics for about 20 years, and is the author of the books to start a war how the Bush administration took America into Iraq, when the Tea Party came to town, and dead certain the presidency of George W. Bush. His next book, weapons of mass delusion when the Republican Party lost its mind, will be published in October. His new article about the Arizona Republican Party's swing to the far right is published in The New York Times Magazine and is already on the times website. We recorded our interview yesterday. Robert Draper, welcome back to fresh air. Thanks for having me on Terry. Why did you decide to make Arizona your focus when looking at how the Republican Party has been swinging to the right? Well, for a couple of reasons, Arizona was the first state to be called by Fox News as a swing state against Trump. And there was a lot of outrage that ensued in that state. The first so called stop the steel protests were waged within Arizona. So I was interested for that reason. But then secondly, while spending time in Arizona, I began to learn about the Arizona conservative grassroots and how they had effectively taken over the party that had once been dominated by John McCain. So it was with that in mind that I began to spend additional time for The New York Times Magazine there and what I learned was that the good news, I suppose, was that the grassroots had taken control. And that the bad news was the grassroots had taken control because of the sentiments that so many in the far right in the Arizona Republican Party maintain. Did most of the primary winners this month support overturning the election? Uniformly they did. And in fact, anyone who did not was defeated. It's not simply that they said yes, the election was stolen. They made it central to their campaign platform. Of course, exhibit a on that is the Republican gubernatorial nominee Kerry Lake. Who has spoken incessantly about how the election was stolen, has talked about how they need to find the perpetrators who did this and frog frog marks them off to jail.

No. I mean, he is the most physically gifted player, the coach manner has ever coached and probably the most physically gets its sense in some Robinson came out. It's just, each one more break counsel player, great, great pro career, self man. I mean, he's an average MBA athlete. Joan Johnson incredibly talented first team all American pro career hasn't maybe, I guess NBA wise, only there for one year has been phenomenal overseas. I mean, chart Edwards, great sport, no. Caleb flanagan. Kind of self made worker. No, the answer's no. It's crazy. I mean, it's crazy this kid's potential. And again, the best thing was he was a team guy. He could have went out there with all those NBA guys watching him in the crowd. You know, Lawrence Franks there, the GM of the clippers, Brad Stevens is in the crowd. And he could have said, all right, you know what? I'm a show every time. Yeah. And he didn't. And that's a mature thing because when you do that more often than not, you're just showing people what you can't do. You know? You're just, hey, let me prove I could shoot it when we go to shoot a bunch of bricks, you know? But it takes a mature kid to do it. I think think about this. How many guards? And I saw it to the highest level in Vegas, where which saw states plan Arizona. And all these guards for which Tom steak keeps saying, I'm going to go challenge Christian colloquium. I'm going to score the ball. This dude block four shots. It felt like he was 40. I mean, he challenged everything. I'm insured to take and it's funny because you get accolades and praise for doing it. Just play the right way. Pass the ball when you're guarded and shoot it when you're not. But ivy is grasping that. And that's probably the next step of his evolution from last season where he's done a much better job of making the right reason and credit for growing up and credit Matt payner for getting him to understand like, this is more impressive than NBA people that there's huge and bad shots. That's what I told him for a while. Every once in a while you get hot, and they're like, man, this dude, I can make shots like that, but most of the knot. And I saw the end this weekend. His shot selection would make Steph Curry be like, man, that's maybe not a great shot. It was so bad at times. Horrible shots..

"arizona" Discussed on Republic Keeper - with Brian O'Kelly
"Tv and we're on we're on not on broadcast and we can say he says scared shitless here's what he says. Lie about twenty two thousand election. Several republican led states have now passed or trying to pass more restrictive voting laws including bills. Which bolster and officials authority to override the decision of local election officials. Want to bring in richard haass. He's a law professor at the university of california irvine. One of the country's foremost election law expert professor. Thank you much. They can so much. I should say for being with us this morning in the new yorker you used a coal full-term term to describe how scared you are about upcoming elections now. I want to warn the kids to put earmuffs on. And i wanna tell you this cable so you can say it. How scared are you about elections going forward. I never expected to say. I'd be scared shitless on cnn. But that's how i feel. I think we dodged a bullet in twenty twenty but the way things are lining up. I'm very concerned about our elections. Going forward especially twenty twenty four and the possibility that we're not going to have an election where the results the official results reflected voters actually want in specifically. That is a specific concern. That i'd like you to talk a little bit more about why is it. You're so concerned that people might just throw out which resulted. Have the power to well. You know if you look at the kinds of arguments. Donald trump was making. They were not just the false claims of voter fraud. The big light. It's gotten so much attention. He has asked for state legislatures to override. The will of the people you remember. He wanted to have a legislatures. In georgia in michigan in wisconsin arizona change the election results and he had. You may remember. I think it was one hundred sixty seven members of congress who voted along with him when they were counting electoral college votes. Now things are lining up those who had the courage to stand up to trump people like brad. Reference burger the secretary of state of georgia. Those people have been pushed out pushed to the side or censured by republicans and they're being replaced by people and being replaced with laws. That are going to make it easier to subvert. The will of the people. If that's what the pressure puts on them to make them. Do i think people look at that and say thinking sinclair. Lewis can't happen here but but it can. I don't think people understand how out of date our federal election. Laws are frankly. The constitution is in terms of presidential elections. At least but these states they can get away with it right. Well you know. The constitution itself says that states can say legislatures can literally take away the power of voters to choose the president and they can choose the present themselves So you can have a state pass a law. That says we're not going to have an election for president. That's right there in article two now. I think that would be politically unpopular. But this is kind of getting the same way in the back door where there's been at least in arizona a proposal that if the state legislature justin agree that the election was run fairly it could throughout the election results and it could decide for itself which which candidate is going to get the state's electric. It hasn't happened yet but the fact that this is even on the table shows you the kind of really anti democratic movement that we're seeing in many parts of the country initiative scare everyone a lot. I'll use the word a lot on. Don't have the same potty mouth at some professors apparently do or rishard. Thank you so much. So he moralizes against what the guy says but The main thing that did you hear the anchor. There say frankly how out of date our constitution is. These guys hate america. They think that jefferson and franklin and washington and adams got it wrong. They think that our founding fathers screwed it up when they gave the power to the states and they finally just one thing. That's true in there. Literally your state. Whatever state year in the legislature could decide that we will always give the electoral votes to whoever appears alphabetically. I in alphabet. They can do that. They could say here. In alaska our processes we will measure the candidates and whoever's tallest wins or wherever ways the most or whoever has the most hair than i couldn't couldn't compete right but they would have they could set the rules as whatever they want. What happened last time. And this is just frigging lion right on national. Tv there which makes me so mad that they get away with it and the contract for airport etc just makes me crazy that they that they get to lie for a living but what they're saying there is that these legislatures would've been doing the wrong thing had they said no. We don't trust the secretary of state's process here because they didn't follow our rules. Which is exactly what the pennsylvania senator saying the pennsylvania's senate is say. Hey we said you can't extend the deadline passed election day and you did. That's the whole argument. And the senate is saying we the legislature saying we get to set the rules not you clowns and so now. Since those legal challenges were questioned. Several states are passing laws to clarify that it really is up to the legislature in those states and that they're in concert with not in conflict with the united states constitution. And you'll and you'll notice that they always keep using the same language. It's always the big lie. Voter restriction typically. Yeah yeah. it's always this legitimate. It's right out of goebbels playbook exactly don't keep the simple tell it off until it often enough yet people believe it exactly is how many people i know that actually believe literally people literally believe that joe biden was more popular than donald trump That's just so frightening. There are several examples as to why that was not true. Now you know the election results may be a different thing who knows. Maybe joe by did win more votes. But the idea that he's more popular it just can't be i mean if they were rallies everything easy to see. Even now you have to issue subpoenas to get people to go see. Joe biden public and people wind up the day before to see trump. So there's an ad that came out for a wine company and the ad. This is what i this is kind of what. I hope that our show opener would be in terms of inspiring feels feelings of patriotism and it's a wine company so good for them but this is really really great. Take.

"Welcome to the audible presented by trader. Joe's i'm stewart mandel joined by bruce feldman it is the middle of june bruce which is usually one of the quietest times in college football of the year. And i'm i'm i'm you know i've been as busy as ever been i. You are to. It's just been in explosion of news in college football. Let's talk about a pretty explosive story. That emerged on wednesday in terms of recruiting violations at arizona. State that You and are. Asu writer. doug taylor have been on top of so Herm edwards obviously has had an interesting time as the head coach at a issue and Look i think he really is handed the keys of his program largely to his defense coordinator antonio pierce. Who's i think has been promoted four times there and there has been a lot of chatter on the west coast especially over the last week about Some questionable recruiting Tactics and one of the things that come to light. As we reported at the athlete was that arizona state was hosting recruits on campus and in their building during the dead period that was imposed related to covid throughout. And this was like it was interesting after our story went up. I got a call last night which being wednesday night From a coach. Who's in the afc who said who's who's like we heard about this because we had two kids we were recruiting are recruiting who just matter-of-factly had talked about how they had been at asu. And we're like why you know. This was back earl much earlier in the spring way before this month started obviously And this coach made an interesting point. He's like you know a lot of kids most kids. You recruit do not know the ncaa recruiting rules. They do not know the recruiting calendar. They they just don't understand it. It's like something where it's complicated for high school coaches to know. So what you're doing is you're going to have family members in some cases recruits you know in on basically A somewhat of a secret That's probably getting out. And what we have found with duggan. I of reporting we talked to a bunch of former. Asu coaches and staffers. As well as. I've talked to a lot of people around the pac twelve and coaches around the country This was kind of an open secret on that was That was out there and so it got into a little bit as we reported of what one former. Asu coach described as a quote rogue culture and had corroborated that At one point a year ago. Asu for three assistant coaches. Were guys that this particular person said were of high integrity in wouldn't cheat And they were guys that were fired in. This person felt antonio pierce you know. It was really the one that herm edwards leaned on a lot and it was like basically these guys were guys that they knew were wouldn't probably do some of these things and they replace them with younger coaches who would kind of just basically do whatever they were told in that regard and which you've gotten some really really dubious Conduct in it and One of the things we'd report on was like this coach talked about personally. Witnessing an instance last season in the twenty twenty season Where ran into a recruit being brought up like backstairs by some recruiting assistance during coded. And they were taking him to meet meet up with her and this person was like it was blatant You know and so there. That's seems to be the tip of the iceberg here and one of the one of the Coaches i talked to today made the point that was like here. You're having all the stuff go in the pac twelve with asu and your you know it's it's out there now and it doesn't right now it doesn't right to the threshold of some of the stuff you see at some other like programs like people have made this comment to me in the conference. It's like it's not like arizona. State has had like a top ten recruiting class. They had the eighth ranked recruiting class according to two four seven last year. So it's not like yes. They landed jaden daniels. Who was who has been a terrific player for them. It was a big get for them. But it's not like they've been recruiting top ten classes in the wake of all this so it's gonna be really interesting to see how much of this pours out but i think it is going to bring to light. You know it's a really interesting situation. Because i know you and i've talked about this a lot over a couple years. When ray anderson the arizona state. ad hired herm edwards. He boasted about how they're going to do things a certain way and really look towards this. You know kind of almost like an nfl model and where her is delegating. A lotta stuff. Well the nfl model is one thing but the ncaa is going to view it. As head coaches are responsible for what goes on in their program. Now one of the things. I had heard from a former f. Asu staffer was. You know some of the guys who are deeply rooted in the nfl world but maybe new to college coaching. And that's that was the case of you know what's the leadership at a issue. Right now is they may not really they think these some of these rules are really stupid. They may not respect them and it sounds like they didn't care about bendon them a couple of things that that really stand out to me for wine. I mean you know for the most part. People are focused on the when you talk about a recruiting violation somebody trying to get an edge. It's a competitive advantage But in this case we're talking a kind of a blatant disregard for health and safety. You know all teams in the country last year. We're trying so hard to basically form a bubble around their football program to keep You know people from coming in that might Spread covid and i. We don't know. I don't know what the crime the order of events was here with when the recruits came in and went but asu had one of the worst outbreaks in the country. Last year. they had to cancel three straight games. Herm edwards tested positive. Half the coaching staff tested positive. I remember when matt berry the sportscenter anchor who went to a issue and clearly connected. There tweeted early on during that stretch that they didn't have enough guys on one side of the ball to practice so year. They were having massive cova issues. Amidst all that you know based on the description it was just kinda like free rein they're bringing in recruits and their families and having visits just like normal times they're hiding recruits in this in the stadium. Sweet during a game You know that. Put the players in the staff in the building endanger. And i think that because of that you know the ncaa is going to take a much harsher look view of this then just like you know they. They brought in some kids when they shouldn't have you know if there were just like run of the mill recruiting violation And then yeah the other thing that really stands out to me in your reporting pete damn has a story about this on yahoo Is you you rarely see a situation. Where so many people are so eager to dunk on the asu to to to out them like usually no.
