"A good sunday morning. The us enters this labor day weekend suffering from two viruses coverted and polarization. It is not an exaggeration to say that we are more divided than at any time. Perhaps since the nineteen sixties and frankly maybe since the civil war as one of our guests today put it used to be divided over issues like abortion guns. We're kind of used to those divisions. We still are divided on those two issues but now we can't even agree about covert or january six covert has become an mri of america's soul. Who would have imagined that masks wearing or refusing them would become such a political statement. This morning we're going to take a look. At how why. We're so divided primarily through the lens of two issues one is covert where the seven day average of infections has risen to more than one hundred sixty one thousand driven largely by vaccine hesitancy and refusal. The other is abortion. The supreme court leading staff at least for now that restrictive texas law that has left abortion opponents believing row could finally be overturned and pro choice advocates fearing they may be right with the country increasingly divided by geography race age education. The question we're asking this morning. We have political leadership to meet this treacherous political moment. People are enraged on both sides of the issue. And it's completely tearing this community apart. The political divide has become deadly with vaccine hesitancy driven by misinformation and the politicizing the virus leading to the harassment of healthcare workers hospitalizations and deaths escalating the rhetoric the bullying fill like some weird twilight zone. Why we're still going over wearing masks. Just fifty three percent of americans are fully vaccinated. Despite the nation's early start that ray trails more than thirty other countries as covert hospitalizations in-depth rise red states with the lowest vaccination rates are driving the surge. Yada help me get to people vaccinated we. We are suffering the most at a time when it is the most preventable in a recent. Nbc news poll just fifty five percent of republicans said they were vaccinated compared to eighty eight percent of democrats among republicans who said they support donald trump over the republican party. The number was even lower. Forty six percent. Seventy nine percent of democrats favor of acting requirement. Seventy five percent of republicans oppose it. Do you regret not getting the vaccine. Absolutely i a hundred percent regret. What were some of the things you were hearing that the vaccine was diarrheal vaccine that it was like a tracking chip the gover- shied us misinformation has spread rapidly on conservative media. A plan is now underway to use vaccine mandates to take your guns virtually everything. They told us about the kobe vaccine was wrong. And i'm social media. What's in the vaccine. Gimme.

Eugene robinson and bill kristol. Bill there was another tweet today. That got our attention at least the harvard educated upstate new york trump enthusiast put out this picture.

It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep, and I'm no well King. Good morning. This week, Republican lawmakers had to decide who represents their party. Is it Liz Cheney, who voted to impeach Donald Trump? Or is it Marjorie Taylor Greene, who's promoted Q and on conspiracy theories and political violence, and says Trump sparked her interest in politics. In the end, they appear to have chosen both. The full House voted to remove green from her committee assignments yesterday, but only 11 Republicans voted to do so. Before the vote, Green says she no longer believes the lies she spread. These were words of the past, and these things do not represent me. They do not represent my district and they do not represent my values. She did not apologize. So Meanwhile, Liz Cheney survived a vote and kept her position in Republican leadership. On the line with me now. Barbara Comstock of former representative from Virginia. Good morning. Good morning. Good to be with you. On Lee 11. House Republicans voted to remove green from her committees. Were you surprised? It was so few Well, I certainly was disappointed. I thought more representative of the caucus overall was the strong 70% support. You know, Landslide for Liz Cheney when the Freedom Caucus people like Jim Jordan and Matt Gates had said it was going to be 115 against her, and they could only have 61 so clearly. They were bluffing, and she called their bluff and she asked for that vote did very well, I think if Marjorie Green if that we should have, Republicans should have done that on their own, and if that had been a secret ballot, it would have been overwhelmingly against her. And I do expect in the future that she would probably have to be disciplined by the Republicans themselves and even kicked out of the party. You just said something really interesting. You said that if Republicans didn't have to put their names to the vote if they were allowed to do this in kind of a secret ballot You think more of them would it would have voted against Marjorie Taylor Greene. Yes, And I think that's why it's unfortunate that leadership didn't just take the action and either themselves to avoid the vote all together or have that same type of secret ballot and say, you know we're going to do this now. I certainly wish people would stand up and do it also because I do agree that she's a cancer on the party. Not representative of the future. I think people like Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger Ben Sasse, who came out with a fabulous video last night. Kind of speaking truth to Republicans that conspiracy theories aren't conservative, you know, defying and hear the results of an election or not conservative. That's where the future of the party is going. And I think Marjorie Green will flame out quickly. Let's talk about current leadership you you brought him up this week, representative Kevin McCarthy said he doesn't even know what Q and on is now. This is striking because he should. How much of a problem is Republican leadership, saying they are ignorant about crucial and well known facts. Well, I thought that was very unfortunate, and I think we have to deal with Q and on head on. I think people should be on the House floor, denouncing it, explaining what it is. And calling it out at every turn. Q. And on. It has no place in Republican politics that has no place in the body politick. It is conspiracy theories. You're FBI has come through this and explained that people are now kind of getting out of it like a cult and I think we need to take it head on. And that is why Marjorie Green, I think will be in my opinion, very short lived. I don't think she was sincere. She clearly did not apologize, and I think she will continue to make incendiary. And dangerous remarks. I understand why people wanted her removed. I think her remarks are dangerous and are fueling those kind of conspiracy theories. Congresswoman Green says she has raised more than $335,000 in the last three days. As a result of this Feur more than a quarter of a million people voted for her in November. Does that really seem to you like someone who's going to flame out? Well, I think Adam Kinzinger is highlighted that this really is about the money right? And this is something that she is, you know, kind of just wanting to be a celebrity, but I think what Marjorie green My forget is there is redistricting that's going to be going on before 2022 as you saw the strong Republican figures in Georgia who stood up to the president. I don't think they're too pleased to have somebody like Marjorie Green represent Georgia. So when they when Republicans who will get to redistrict in Georgia do it, I think they might have an eye on how they can be rid of His cancer in their party. But I think already there's buyer's remorse from many of her voters. And if somebody I certainly would encourage anybody, any strong, good conservative Republican there who is saying Stand up because this isn't conservative versus moderate. This is conservative versus Q. A non, This is conservative versus crazy and we can have a strong conservative. Who isn't an embarrassment and a cancer on our party from Georgia, and I think Georgia Republicans are just the people to do that. Conservative versus Crazy versus people saying they just have no idea what's going on that that seems important to know. Because that is happening at the leadership level. You've been pushing for years for a bigger Republican tent with more diversity, and especially with more women, lawmakers. How do you reconcile this? Well, I point out the two packs that I am associated with Republican women. Pax. We specifically didn't support Marjorie Green or Lauren Bo Burt from A Colorado and in fact view pack we endorsed Marjorie Greens male opponent who was a brain surgeon. You know, we could have had a brain surgeon instead of crazy woman here. So that's that was tragic. We highlighted all of these things that people are hearing now. And so this was a mistake on Gui, you know, tried to ring the bell loud loudly on this. I think we did very well in getting a lot of other women elected But I'm distressed out is that people like young Kim in California First Korean American woman, Michelle Steele, also one of the first Korean American Republican women, some interesting names that I wish we knew more about, but we will have to leave it there. Former Republican Congresswoman Barbara Comstock of Virginia Thanks so much. Thank you.

It seems like there's one thing that unifies Democrats and Republicans right now the capital if they don't like tech very much. Well, exactly and great to be with you, You know, Ironically, in the past, president has said, And I quote and frankly, if I didn't have social media, I'd have no way of getting out my voice because obviously the president likes to attack the traditional media. Now what you really have today and what you had with these attacks on section 2 30 is both sides try and play the rest. You know, you have Republicans who think You know their voices don't get through, which has been a long time, You know, as a Republican. That's been a long time complaint with the mainstream media in general, But I have to say my experience certainly was. In a Republican in a media market that was largely center left the social media, as the president said to was my best asset of direct way of reaching people, and actually, it costs a lot less. Than your traditional media. Now the Democrats get upset because These companies aren't taking material down enough for you. So they're both beating them up. But the whole concept of section 2 30 was that we wanted to My back, actually, when a liberal Democrat Ron Wyden, now senator and conservative congressman, Chris Cox from California when they wrote section 2 30 back in the nineties. The idea was that they wanted to hold the people who put up The users who post things that they're liable for. What's up there, Not the platforms that are providing that, you know, vast universe. To be ableto put information up. It was really the democratization of information where you have an Internet by the people for the people. You don't have to have a by line at the Washington Post. To be able to write something and posted up. But then you are individually responsible for it. Not the platform. Just you know, if you write a review on you know any of these sites about a restaurant, the platform doesn't get sued. If you say Hey, I was poisoned there and I and I had a family member die. And that's you is the individual who put that up there. It's held liable. Basically as Republicans. We don't want to have a massive lawsuit against people who are trying to provide these great networks that allow everybody to have their voices heard and get their voices out there tomorrow. You're you suggest something to me here? Would we have held this hearing or with the Senate have held this hearing. One week from today on November 4th, which happens to be the day after the election. I mean, that's something it's being suggested by Democrats, for example, in the hearing today that this is really as you say, attempt to influence the refs before the big game next Tuesday. Yeah, And I think that's definitely being done. As a Republican. I look at you know, I've been watching the hearing, and it's being done by both sides. You know, they're both beating them up. Like why didn't you take down this tweet or flagged this tweet or why do you have this for that? Nobody. No politician ever fully satisfied with what the press does with them, right Having done one, you know, running for office, you're going to get beat up. That's part of the process. That's why we have a First Amendment. Our founders wanted people to be able to write. You know, you look back. You know, with Jefferson and Adams. They have secret people writing, you know things and putting out you know all kinds of things about people. That's what we wanted to have a First Amendment where we'd have that say, and you know, it's a very high liability threshold before you could see somebody because we want to have that public dialogue. Do you frequently have politicians obviously complaining. I don't like what's being said about me whether it's on newspapers or and that's a common process you go through and you make those complaints. But what the social media has done is it's allowed. They're not gatekeepers anymore. You're allowed to Everybody can get their voices heard on social media, and I think it's been a democratization of media and more voices. And it has, you know completely can complain about it. But it also that's our First Amendment Harbor. I wonder if that's quite right. Because we learned today particularly respect to some of the cross examination of Col that Mr Dorsey In fact, Twitter does take some stuff down there making decisions. And for example, that was pointed out, you know, they took some stuff down from President Trump. It didn't from the Ayatollah Khomeini. Well, they've flagged and I I don't represent Twitter, you know, But the idea is you put up your standards of conduct and and allow people to know Here's Here's our rules of the road here affect you know you have Liberal websites that have information on them. And you know, they may not particularly friendly conservative coming on and and writing things. But But the idea I guess they've had some flags and things on Twitter, but they are, but this is a private company and as Republicans, it's like, you know, to have this attack. It's not censorship.

That's absolutely true. And. Having a successful governorship, and and has kept himself away for the Democratic Party sort of shenanigans in terms of always down all ripping on on the president. And you know, and and he did a decent job as a manager of a sort of an executive of the state as opposed to an ideolog. Yeah. She's a good leader as well. That would be a great race. But I quickly what you to explain to people. Why the firefighters are upset with Selena? Zito patriot mobile pundit of the week. Why are they upset the wise? The president upset with the firefighters union. Firefighter union because as many firefighters pointed out to me as well is that the union leadership takes takes takes us division and stands behind, you know, Joe Biden, right? But it they're. So guess connected from the men and women serve in the cities and towns and communities across the country. You know, they're they're not happy that their leadership toque this position with backing by and terminated excellent point by by saying, look, these people the men and women that essentially within Washington live on K street at working outside K street. And they're the ones that made the decision support Biden, not rank and file and he is right. I mean, he has only saved those eloquently, but he he does have it, right? I can't I don't understand leadership of unions when they separate the president should get the UAW's endorsement the way he's fighting for Lordstown the way he is actually very connected, and you can see this in the polls with union members in the private sector and the public employee unions. Absolutely. The union of work to working family is really connected with the president. And I think you're gonna see one of two things happen. Here is the Democrats destroy Joe Biden in a primary process. And this is the union leadership that told me not even rank and file leadership knows that if the Democratic Party is either successful industry tr- by in a primary and anywhere by left. He stayed. He goes on winning from his route. They are going to lose. The working class union family voter, and that includes not only the worker, but the entire family. It's a very to sort of those right? Well, said follow salena Zito on Twitter at salena Zito just tweeted out to calls from this week read them both. And if you like what Salinas does say, you will love being a patriot mobile member.

"Wait ten and one zero three one WG y. Let it come out. Let people see that's up to the attorney general. We have very good attorney general is a very highly respected. And we'll see what happens the president himself has called without qualification for the report to be made public. There is no reason on God's green earth. Why attorney general bar should do any less? President Trump and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer seeming to agree. The full Muller report should be released to the public. And it's time now for our Sunday group. Former Republican congressman Jason Fitz columnist for the hill, Juan Williams former democratic congresswoman Donna Edwards now a columnist for the Washington Post and former Republican congresswoman Barbara Comstock, I was thinking with three former members of congress. We could form our own committee here, hold hearings, congressman shape. It's from the information that you have an it's pretty sketchy. But what we've heard so far about the Muller. A report as we await the summary, and then whatever else more we're gonna get over time. What do you think we can say about President Trump's actions? His and his jeopardy down the line to impeachment. I think impeachment is a ridiculous notion at this point if the Muller probe with everything they have all the resources, and by the way, we need to still read the report, but they have no more indictments coming in not a single person in relation to actual collusion. It's really kind of ridiculous to even be talking about impeachment. And if the Democrats continue to overreach if they continue with this power grab to try to de-legitimize the president. I think America tunes that out it keeps screaming wolf wolf wolf. And then they ended up that they have nothing what Adam Schiff and others promised that they had seen personally under the guise that they had classified information, and they got to see things other people didn't. And they've got nothing at this point. Congressman edwards. Well, the president does a lot to de-legitimize himself. But I think that what Democrats.

"Hello and welcome to powerhouse politics. I'm ABC news chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl. For joined now by Barbara Comstock, former congresswoman from the great state of Jinya and somebody who's had a lot of experience in dealing with congressional investigations. Because you were also a staff on the government reform committee pass, right? To be with you today. Barr. Thank you for joining us. I wanted. We wanted to bring you on get your your take on first of all what's going on now with the the government shutdown government employees federal employees now facing another pay period of without pay. And you your district, of course, has one chock full of federal employees. That isn't actually I still stand as one of the few people in the distant who didn't vote for a government shutdown. That was something we had worked hard not to have. I think you've seen. I usually don't agree that often with the Washington Post editorial board, but they have been talking about what would be the natural so to compromise. And it's taking something like what the president has talked about already but sitting down when the ANSI Pelosi and everybody else and coming and getting a resolution and the real problem. We're facing right now as both you have fewer folks in the middle and how and you have people on both extremes. Gotta driving this debate. A lot. Who would rather have an issue than a solution? So it's very much sort of this war of the roses between mom and dad here and the kids are really suffering. And it's not just the federal employees is the federal contractors all around the country. And it's important for people to understand something. I always make sure people understand is that their federal employees all over the country, the vast Washington, they're all over the all over the country in Florida in Alabama, lots and California and government contractors and government contractors don't get paid back. And I remember with the two thousand thirteen a shutdown. I was in the state house, then and that was what look twenty days or so so much shorter than this one has been and there were people then who said, you know, I had to shut my small business down ride to let people go. But even the big guys are having trouble. You know, Delta Airlines twenty five million dollars a week. It's costing I know. My hairdresser has said. Fewer people are coming in restaurants throughout certainly throughout our area. So this is an economic problem now, and for this White House that has been focusing on the economy, certainly something I think is important we need to get people back to work, and we need and Nancy Pelosi needs to come to the table too. Because a lot of these folks who went in. There said I'm going to work across the aisle, I'm going to get solutions. And if they're serious when you have Newt Gingrich and Donald Graham of the Washington Post writing up Ed on what the solution is. And we've actually in congress. We've last summer we've voted on that, you know, the DACA solutions the idea of giving a path to citizenship and to have yet to we actually I think it was more than the it was even more dreamers. The president is talking about in the president said he would support that Bill last summer, and you know, last summer, the Democrats didn't wanna even look at it because they wound up the issue. We're going into a campaign. We. Can't be doing this. You know, we want to issue instead of a solution for two years that will be disastrous not just for the federal employees. But for the entire economy for our defense infrastructure for our technology, healthcare, and every all the areas impacted which, but you made it you made a very good point, which is particularly with Republicans House Republicans the middle is kind of kind of gone away,.

Whittle federal employees, usually get back pay after shutdowns, but there's no guarantee and local senators are working to change that Senator Chris van Holland's urging the Senate to pass a Bill that would ensure federal employees get paid retroactively after every government shutdown guarantee really creates unfair uncertainty on top of the unfairness of people.

"Brown. Josh, Holly Blackburn, get into the Senate, and it is very motivating. It's a it's have great members who really want to bust up these stablishment. So it really fits my personality. That's good. To keep doing this through two thousand twenty seven control. Yeah. Absolutely. Absolutely. And so what's on the horizon? That's a much tougher map for Republicans. It it is Republicans defending twenty one or twenty two seats to Democrats twelve but you've got Alabama Lamar Alexander's leaving in Tennessee. So there are a Republican pickup opportunities in states that are ripe for hardcore conservatives, and you look for people like MO Brooks, there's plenty of others in Alabama. But he ran last time and he was a good candidate president managed to knock him out. But and in in in Tennessee, I'm curious we're gonna swear in a guy today as congressman Mark green who could well step forward much like Tom cotton didn't Arkansas and take on that Senate race in twenty twenty and Tennessee, so we could see another Marsha Blackburn lake race. But I don't think the Democrats are going to be a successful recruiting as they were in two thousand eighteen Phil Bredesen's. Was about as good as they could do in quality of candidate. But you are right. It's a very different. Matt a how how influential was the president going around the country during these centers is he focused on the Senate. And so, you know, now in retrospect was good, you know. Do you like the seeing the president involved in wrapped up with these candidates? Is he helpful to them? And what should he do in two thousand twenty twenty twenty? I mean, his first focus as it must be is going to be as relaxed, right? And obviously he's gonna have a deep impact on all the Republicans were running. You know, it was interesting for until the closing part of the cycle. There were a lot of people in the mainstream media interest. See the leadership Republican Lee so-called leadership Firdaus surrender ship better at that. But you must you must get along. Great a cocktail parties. I don't really go. It's easier that way. Saved them all being uncomfortable. But Trump was a big help. You look look at Josh Holly, Mike Brown asked bike Brown. When he's on the air today, you'll you'll hear that bringing out a Trump base. Many of whom had not voted for years before two thousand sixteen was a big deal in these Senate races. And let's remember you already noted the map changes in two thousand twenty. But in two thousand eighteen there were ten Democrats defending in seats that Trump one that is an enormous number of crossover potential states and Republicans did very well. Even where people didn't win in this listening area. Attorney general Patrick Morrissey. Lost in a close race to Joe Manchin. Joe Manchin didn't break fifty and Morrissey did well as he did in his first race unseating in twenty year. Incumbent Matt Rosendahl in Montana tester didn't break fifty in surviving that race. So these guys, and of course, Marsha Blackburn. Woman did really really well. And it it it it shows that Trump's support, and he was in all these states a lot. Yes was valuable. Okay. So so real talk about the electorate what what lessons did you pull from two thousand eighteen when you look at the demographics of people who actually voted because you know, we're constantly told all sorts of things there's all all of us all of this analysis. Single women are offered Democrats. I mean, and you get basically breaking down all these lines who actually showed up to the polls did anybody surprise you. And what are what are the things that Republicans need to do better at well some of the house race outcomes? Were driven by the kind of schizoid leadership approach where they were preaching to their folks, you know, campaign on local issues in tip O'Neill gave that old famous advice. All politics is local that is advice for Democrats Republicans need to run national campaigns. That doesn't mean they need to subjugate their campaign to Paul Ryan. But it does mean they need to run a national females. You may have reading every house candidates. They need to understand how they make those issues effect. Area. Barbara comstock. Yeah. Comstock ran on local issues, she basically avoided national topics. But I think I think Barbara in that district was toast from the get-go the real mistake. There was the leadership spending so much money. They're when they could have helped meaningfully in five other districts with that money already knowing what was going to happen. And it never changed. The course of the race interesting. All right mortar, Ken could coming up right here on WFAN five twenty two..

One of Donald Trump's key advisers on the immigration issue on with CNN's wolf Blitzer where wolf tries to claim that the Democrats are four border security and Miller puts them on the spot, and what you to pay attention to how wolf answers and response. It's very clear. That he's not willing to face the truth about the Democrats in immigration, Democrats, all the to do support border security and the governor will be funded, but that we're talking about. Troll the dunk rat support border security. They don't support five billion dollars. Could you could could you identify Wolfer for me some of the kinds of border security? You're saying the Democrats say they support borders. What where they well. Do you go to the case law? They voted against ending sanctuary cities. They voted against the porting MS thirteen gang members. They voted against the porting, violent criminals. They voted time and time again against a physical border wall. Stop illegal entry. I mean, where's the evidence that you keep asserting therefore border security? They haven't been they oppose closing loopholes for asylum that flood are sitting with meritless claims. I wanna move out. Of course, he wants to move on. I mean, I don't need to wolf is always nice to me on the sediment trying to pile on wolf year. But Joe, I think it's pretty clear wolf got beaten up pretty bad there, and so bad that he just wants to move on because he doesn't have a comeback that now I did some homework for you. Because liberals will try to of course, dispute all this stuff. I did a little homework fan I wanna hat tip. Eddie scary to Washington Examiner. Who has an interesting piece up vetting this stuff as well? The Democrats did. In fact, fight MS thirteen deportations. Barbara Comstock introduced a Bill in September of two thousand seventeen Joe to make it easier to get gang members out of the country by the poor taste, and the Democrats don't want it. They have been fighting against that it passed the house. It is not pass the Senate. That is in fact, true the deportation of gang members by MS thirteen. Now that was a later Bill for some money to fight gang violence that the Democrats did vote for because we're going to do factor, but the deportation and removal of dangerous gang members. Barbara Comstock soon to be former congresswoman from Virginia introduced a Bill in September of twenty thousand seventeen making it easier to get rid of MS, thirteen and other gang members and Democrats didn't want it. They didn't support it. Stephen Miller is absolutely right. They voted against the border wall. These absolutely right. That's what's happening right now with the shutdown voted against Cates. Law. Law fact. Voted against sanctuary cities. Yes, September I'll shoot me February of two thousand eighteen Pat Toomey had an amendment wanted. It brought up on the floor of the Senate floor, which would make it would have made it easier for the federal government to combat some of these sanctuary city policies Chuck Schumer blocked it obstruct at any debate on it. Folks, this objected to even opening up a vote on it Schumer. This is all fact, ladies and gentlemen. Now, you have Schumer Joe this is humor. Now. Just so you understand these ladies gentlemen, what I'm trying to tell you right now. The Democrats are not for border security Cates. Lot. Nope. Deporting gang members. Nope. Fighting sanctuary cities. Nope. Border wall. Nope. Here's Schumer on the portable. Everyone knew yesterday long before the houseboat that the president's will elect sixty votes in the Senate. It is proven to lack even fifty votes. It will never pass the Senate not today not next week not next year.
