"If you're watching the video version, this program on Fox Nation at home when we appreciate all the people who do that as well, I'm gonna have to like I gotta throw my leg break. Had this dig down yesterday, Right? So there's Vein that was just busted up from I swear was from years of that Thai boxing stuff, you kick the hell out of bags. You start busting your legs up and you know it was just a busted up kind of AIDS. So they took that sucker out yesterday. Wasn't particularly painful or anything, but I'm wrapped up my right leg like the mummy. And, uh, certainly heard a little bit through the break. So I said to Jim, I think we have to, you know, elevate that sucker a little bit. Make sure some like blood drains out or something like that. So that might be a nice view during break and I'll apologize in advance for that. No one wants to see my chicken sticks. But sweet is listen for Jim. The show goes on. Does it not show goes on, I promise. So I feel good. And he really sleep too well last night and Jim knows I complain about sleep all the time. But I oddly feel pretty good today, even though I didn't sleep that much because my leg was bothered me a little bit. Take a painkiller for the first time in a long time, and man did that didn't work. Dad, baby. Maybe so she was like, Maybe that's why you feel that that was one of those Ric flair moments wou. I was like, Gosh, I went right to sleep after that bad boy. Alright getting back there. They closed the too much information file. Please, Jim, we need that. We need some kind of liner the door at the file door closing the too much information file. We got to get that done. This is a press it, it's you. Alright, getting back to the serious stuff. I warned you. I hate being right. I wish I was wrong. I'm not kidding. This is not a self praise moment. I'm not doing that. I really do desperately want to be wrong on this. But Democrats in the media so predictable, predicting their next move is typically pretty easy because totalitarians and tyrants are pretty predictable. They do totalitarian tyrants stuff. So I told you that there January 6th commission that Nancy Pelosi was pushing for you investigate the incident on January. 6th had nothing at all to do with getting the truth. They had an FBI investigation going on, but there's nothing to do with any of that. It had everything to do with shutting down and interfering in the 2022 election because Pelosi knows she is in real trouble in 2022. She wants to use what's really going on. She wants to retire, but she wants to retire on top, and she doesn't want to retire in 2022. If the Democrats wind up losing 30 40 potentially even more seats in the House of Representatives. I doubt that it happened. There's already a slim margin now, but she does not want to be part of a tidal wave of losses. You got me so she's going to do anything she can to stop. The tidal wave of loss is one of the things she did is she established this committee. She put this Democrat hack in charge. Bennie Thompson, Democrat for Mississippi. Of course, you know, these guys have no principles. They have no dignity or anything like that. And what are they doing now? Well from the Wall Street Journal today, the Democratic norm breakers that's the story in the editorial page. They have now sent letters. This Democrat committee again keep this in mind the whole time that the FBI has already investigated this, but the Bennie Thompson is going to get to it. He's like, Oh, Jack Benny Thompson. He's like Starsky and Hutch with Nancy Pelosi. That's it. This is Betty Does get Betty Thompson FBI. He's good. They're going to get to the bottom of this. They've apparently sent letters. This committee 35 companies from AT and T to Facebook to parlor asking them to preserve information about account holders charged with crimes related to or quote potentially involved with discussions. That's important in planning the January 6th riot. The companies are requested to preserve emails, voice and text and direct messages in preparation for subpoenas to come. Why would you think they would do that? Come on. I know you already. You already know this. You can take over the mic and take over the show. Right now. You know what they're doing. So you figure Thousands of people showed up for the rally that day. A small number of them. Small number were involved in some activities somewhat were criminal, right? Thousands of people showed up to exercise their constitutional right. You do have the constitutional right to assemble. You know, liberals don't know that. But if you get there's an app for the Constitution, I have it on my phone. You may want to try that you can see there is in fact, a Constitution apple you'll read. There is a big our God given right to assemble. So thousands of people did nothing wrong. We're just exercising their constitutional right. So now the House committee for January six they want They're subpoenaing people who are potentially involved with discussions. In planning the January 6th incident. What does what does that mean The discussions That mean you were there. Does that mean you discuss going there? Was that mean You didn't even go and discuss going. Does that mean you went? Did nothing wrong? Does that mean you went did something? What exactly does that mean? Does that mean? You broke the laws and not mean you broke the law? Does it mean you sent an email about the rally? Is it I mean, is it if you sent an email that you thought the election was stolen and thought about attending the rally? Does that include you to notice how they say, potentially involved with discussions in their subpoenas to these companies? You notice how that's left in this big, broad, open based way? You notice that how it's not like a closed ended, which an open integrate, potentially and who gets to decide who was potentially involved with discussions on the January 16. Well, of course, Benny Thompson and the Democrats. Now I can guarantee you the people at that rally. 90 plus percent of them did nothing wrong or exercising their constitutional rights. Many of them are activists who were probably going to be volunteers, door knockers and in congressional campaigns and Senate campaigns that would be on the map in 2022. What better way to get them out of the door, knocking activism process then to send a bunch of subpoenas to get their telephone records to scare the living. Hattie's out of them. Nice job Democrats. Like I said, they are so predictable once you come to the conclusion that Democrats are Not serious political activists. They're told they're totalitarians and tyrants. Once you discover that it's a eureka moment in your life, I had it a long time ago. They become extremely easy to predict and footprint out there next, their next act their next steps. There's nothing difficult about it all. You don't have to be Sherlock Holmes. You have to be some sophisticated investigator here. You have to be like MacGyver, fiddling things with the Swiss army knife you don't have. You don't even have to have an I Q. Above 90. They do tyrant stuff. What would tyrants do before an election? They would try to scare and intimidate. People did not vote. Not be activists. That's what they're doing. They thing here gavel time next. Gavel drops verdict is in guilty as charged their tyrants. What are they investigating? You're telling me Bennie Thompson Bennie Thompson. Is he going to flash about Betty Thompson House? January 6th me. Bennie Thompson is going to investigate this what the FBI failed and Bennie Thompson's going to rescue the FBI from their own failures. Betty Thompson. Again pay very, very specific attention to the language. They want information. People potentially involved with discussions, potentially Involved with discussions. How are you? Hey, Jim, How are you potentially involved with discussions? You either discussing or you're not Don't say to a way of life, and Jim Jim and I have to discuss our Labor Day show, so I said Jim, let's potentially discussed you either. Discuss it or you don't right? You said you potentially discuss it, but that's what you do when you're a liberal tyrant to leave it open ended so you can ensnare everyone. What better way to shut down activists a key component of elections. Then to ensnare them in a subpoena Web and scare the hell out of them. Force them to pay lawyers. Time they can't then donate to campaigns money they can't donate to campaigns..

"I think all of that's going to um, yeah, yeah, at this point. It didn't really matter that she was going to join the select committee. She's so far, far out on a limb that that she's really a target from any trump supporters. Any conservative base that the Republicans have in Wyoming is one of the redder states out there, so I feel like she probably felt like she had nothing to lose and And she clearly feels very strongly about this. You know, she's from a political dynasty. Um Their traditions, their that she's trying to uphold. And she thinks that the what happened on January six is a real travesty, a real threat to democracy. And, um, she thinks anybody defending Trump and in the aftermath is violating that oath, and she doesn't want to be among them, even if that makes her a pariah within the party. So, um, what is going to be fascinating is and this is a dynamic re really haven't ever seen up here. Not in my experience anyway. Is, you know, you can imagine some, You know some conservative Trump supporters on the select committee and everybody is going to be watching. It's going to be on TV. And if you know Benny Thompson is going at going at it with Jim Jordan or something like that. That's kind of dog bites Man type of story. You expect Democrats and Republicans to go after each other. But in this case if you've got somebody like Jim Jordan going after Liz Cheney that makes it a totally different dynamic there. And, of course, this place to Pelosi's advantage to the Democrats advantage because The select committee is already bipartisan. Even if McCarthy doesn't appoint anybody at all so and and it's a one sided bipartisan sentiment. Their position, of course, is Trump was at fault on January 6th, and there should be some kind of some kind of repercussion and some some kind of recommendation for how to prevent.

"It's normally you get the wind things down as you head towards the weekend. We're kind of winding things up. You get CPAC. I got confirmation hearings going on in Washington, D C. Those air going well. And Mark Walker helping us break it down. Joining us this morning. How you doing this this'll? Fine day, sir. They say I'm doing great man. I hope that you're hanging in there. You know, I'm doing my thing. The audience knows I'm literally down in Costa Rica staying warm by. I am Ted Cruz. So, um, but I'm gonna Well not listen to this here later on if I want to come back or not, I guess I don't know, man. A Zhar. Did you work in a zoo? Great job, as you do is keep in North Koreans, uh, informed. I don't think most of us have a problem. If you don't in Costa Rica today, you still working? Yeah, And I'm working an hour ahead. So that's always fun with the now we're behind with the early morning alarm. All right, let me get on to this because you don't d c man d c is going to d. C. I gotta ask you They got confirmation hearings going on. Obviously, this is, you know it's a senatorial process, but they're also doing some house hearings, one of which yesterday was The hearing on disinformation. Basically, let's see who chairs this. It's big journey and how you say your name issue and the issue. Yes. So you got it. So, yes. So they bring on Soledad O'Brien, the former CNN Acres so she can speak critically of others in the media for disinformation. This woman is walking disinformation. She was a huge proponent of the Russian collusion and a variety of other things. I got to ask myself. You've sat in these hearings before. And you look at the witness list and being that you guys were not the majority power at the time Whos the whats the dumbest person, not person per se, but the worst example of somebody brought in to testify as an expert where you just roll your eyes when you saw it. I think the one that immediately jumps out at me and this and no preparation you you hit move this question, but the one that jumps out at me most was the Southern Poverty Law Center. Trying to make out the family Research Council as a Zaid domestic terrorists hate group. That was that was the most interesting one that really jumped out. That was completely after nine. The these hearings are our joke because they're all 19 committees air chaired by Democrats. And you know Republicans, sometimes trying to play nice they when they were in charge. Would do 50 50 on the witnesses. Sometimes the Democrats like Benny Thompson on Homeland Security, they won't even allow a single independent or Republican witness. It's all left leaning and for sure there, Brian Listen, when you're too progressive, that CNN has to let you go. There might be a problem. Well, it's just I sit there and I go. What are we hoping to accomplish? And what we did see is we saw a letter that was sent to cable providers and streamers, essentially demanding that they answer for the high crime mark of Running Fox News on their cable packages as well is away, and I believe in Newsmax. This is where this is chilling stuff. Killing stuff because the left knows now. They're progressive agenda by itself is not going to be accepted by the bulk of American people, so it needs an action step with it. That action step is to eradicate or silence any kind of independent or conservative, critical thinking skills that would present an option from big socialist government. And that's the scary part because corporate America Is now signing up for this joke to be able to silence of where this Fox News, Newsmax, Bowie and other conservative ethic times a lot of lot of good sources out there. But only hearings. I don't want to skip past Xavier Becerra, either. Who I'm coming back to this. I'm coming. Go ahead with this because that exchange yesterday with men with Ben Sasse. Phenomenal. We're assault was sticking on the house side for just a moment. But let's let's head over to the Senate Side. Two on day was gonna go Neera Tanden. But if you want to start here, so the Xavier Becerra, who is the agent for the State of California, who literally was filing the lawsuit. That we're continuing to go after the system with the set the what is the sisters of the poor Little sisters of the poor? These were the group of nuns who didn't want to have to purchase Birth control for obvious reasons for their for their order and were part and parcel of some big lawsuits. Ben Sasse was Berlin but Sarah yesterday and be Sarah said, Well, I didn't sue them. I sued the federal government explain why explain why this is such that is such a Bs answer, please. Well, yes, in it is completely fraudulent. Because if you look you don't have to have a lot of greed. I used to say I'm not a lawyer. Trigati would tell me to stop bragging. But you don't need a law degree. To be able to see specifically his intentions were to go after any religious or non profit organization who pushed back on some of these. Some of these portions and parts of what was the CIA, or we know is obamacare. My biggest agree. Just move on. His part was when he said, We need to find common ground on partial birth abortion. So it's the last night my wife, family nurse practitioner She broke it down for our youngest daughter who's a nice operator, because we hear the term partial birth abortion. It's kind of a political terminology, but but basically for your audience, and this is a bit graphic, but I think it needs to be shared every now and then this procedure. Literally pulls a living baby eat first out of the womb and into the birth canal Except for the baby's head, then that head is left inside with a base of the school is then punctured by a sharp instrument. After the brain is suctioned out with another instrument. The skull is collapsed in the baby is then delivered dead. And Mr Becerra wants us to find common ground in this area. I have been ticked about this for the last two days for this guy to be the HHS. The human services secretary. It is absolutely preposterous. I think, Do you think he'll get through? I think you will. I think he's going to get through. I think we've you know it was already I was surprised Merrick Garland, who would not commit moving forward, or at least not stopping the Durham investigation that got through it. And some of her own senators passed him through s. Oh, yeah. If this was that she was on the other foot of you wouldn't get a single Democrat Senate to vote. But once again, some of our guys just like, well, let's play nice here. And I think it's gonna be a detriment to have some of these people in these cabinet positions. Well, the Merrick Garland thing to your point about where you know it's extend the olive branch and often it's never extended back. I think that some of that was about what happened with his his nomination. I think that they somehow thought, Well, look down look like a nice guy here, and I don't hate Mary Garland. Even though you know, we we didn't get him nominated the spring quarter or and yeah, that looks like I could live with that. Casey if there was a single historical precedent that by extending the olive branch to some of these elitist is ever returned as a favor, it never is. We go back to George H. W. Bush. No new taxes, he said. Well, let's extend an olive branch. How'd that work out for him? This is constant..

"In 2019 Democrats took control of the house. And Benny Thompson took control of the Homeland Security Committee. And finally, after I became chairman, we held a hearing. And it was on Lee in this hearing that members of Congress and the public get a chance to see and hear for the first time. What was going on? This hearing and other Democrat led oversight hearings got the FBI to finally acknowledge the serious threat of white supremacist terrorism. They said that quote racially motivated violent extremism was now as big a threat is Isis. These hearings didn't turn up a lot of details on exactly what the FBI was doing to deal with that threat on the ground, like the number of agents or cases or arrest So I asked the FBI agent in charge of counterterrorism for the New York Field office. Joe Denna Han. I think there's really been a surge and what we assess is racially motivated, violent extremism both here in New Jersey and across the nation. I think a lot of the profiles of the subjects where we have seen conduct successful attacks or younger males, all of them really radicalized online. Now that The velocity of those threats and successful attacks appears to be increasing. We obviously dedicate a greater number of resource is to that threat when when you talk about that? Dedicating a greater number of resource is Can you share anything in the way of numbers? Something to kind of just concretely get a sense of what that looks like, Unfortunately, can't give any specifics on that in terms of our Personnel or assets. But I can tell you that there is a tremendous emphasis put on this. We recognize that the threat is evolving and we're evolving with it. No question about it. And just to be clear. Why is it that you can't give more details on that? I'm not comfortable talking about. You know the number of agents that we have working a specific threat. So no numbers, and then there's the term itself racially motivated violent extremism. I call it that. Are we primarily talking about white supremacist terrorism? Me? No question that you know white, racially motivated extremism is a very serious problem. Well, what else fits into that? What he isn't saying is the whole point of the term. Racially motivated violent extremism is that they're not just talking about white supremacists who've been responsible for more plots and attacks in the last few years than any other kind of terrorist in our database. What happened was in 2017 and FBI document was leaked to Foreign Policy magazine about something they called black identity extremists. Theo FBI define them as anyone using violence, quote in response to perceived racism and injustice in American society in particular police brutality. It.

"App. Let's go to cocktail chatter when you're trying to hide out in a bar not be docs. Docs not have your information made publicly available by any congressperson from texas or anyone else and you're sipping anonymously. We had a drink. What will you be chattering about. Mike pesca so when i am a non anonymously sipping my moscow mule in a non-approved non on copper cop. Perhaps a brass mug or a. I don't know somewhat tarnished iron chalice. I shall think of what the daily ellie coast is doing so the delicate has this little experiment this little <hes> crowdsourced exercise in slightly improving improving our democracy and they looked at the united kingdom and they noted that the parliamentary constituencies they're of great names. You've you've seen this. If you watched brexit results come in right the vale of glamorgan the forest of dean the fountains of wayne okay that would be a new jersey one and they said why can't we have this in the united states. Let us like what the hell california's twenty-seventh is. That doesn't make sense so they said let's name all of our congressional district right idea some a pretty obvious like alaska's alaska delaware. That's an easy one but then other ones but alaska. Why isn't the last frontier. I represent the last frontier that would be good ed. Maybe they think you were senator from star trek but let's not get extra confusing like final frontier right but wait. What is what is louisiana that that is the book. There's a frontier thing there too. Isn't there a vacation paradise. A louisiana has a frontier nickname. Makir of mardi gras frontier drunk they have to nicknames is the pelican state in the end the sportsman's paradise okay so it's not a frontier anyway anyway so i went through a few congressional districts and some are going to be hard to name so before i start labeling and i welcome gab up fast listeners to give a suggestion maybe for there's a couple ideas of the namings summer pretty easy you know all of almost all of minneapolis list is ilan omar fine but what about ohio's fifth congressional district this includes parts of defiance fulton and handcock doc in hardin who the hell knows what that is and then. I realized oh this is where the movie heathers took place. That's very informative of the kind of people who might live in and vote for ohio's fifth says that should be the heather's district where i come from. Peter king is the representative and it's a part of long island. That's a little blue-collar what describes that and i thought of a famous historic figure that if you associated with the new york congressional district that peter king serves that would be the but fuko district up to the north of where i live tom swazi from glen cove he would represent west egg. Which is where gatsby the little thompson yes gasps. Maybe the better name benny thompson could be mississippi delta cradle of the blues cedric richmond of louisiana. They might not like this name but he's he would be the representative from cancer alley and there's some of cancer alley that's outside of his district and and then sometimes you could just name it after a really useful one. Is this guy kenny martin from texas and you know he's a representative of texas but we're from texas he would be the representative from exxon because that's where <hes> exxon's headquarters in irving texas and then sometimes you could just name a district after a famous person who served there so when pelosi leaves whoever takes over that district in san francisco should serve the pelosi district but this i think really informative ohio thirteenth. What does that mean. It's the traffic can't district and if i told you oh did you know tim. Ryan serves the traficant district. That would be meaningful. I think you're ended. Who traficant is. I think i think you're such a political insider. I shouldn't be much more about the city or the geographical feature. That's the thing that would be for philly cheese steak district or or my home district that district. There's probably actually we re district did so. Maybe there's a part of south philly. Aren't you in like. Aren't you like the main line main line fine. No i did not grow up in the main line. I grew up in germantown in east falls inside philadelphia. It's crucial to my identity that you understand that are are both gino's and pats in your district because if not it's not the philly cheese steak district. I think there.
