House votes to avert rail strike, impose deal on unions

"Congress is attempting to head off a national rail strike. I'm Ben Thomas with the latest. Members from both parties are pushing for it. Michelle fischbach, Republican of Minnesota. Our country's economy can't handle a strike that reports would say would cost $2 billion a day. Democrat Jim mcgovern of Massachusetts. Commuter rails that carry tens of thousands of people to work each day would no longer run. There will be shortages of nearly every kind of food in our grocery stores. The result, the a's are two 90, the nays are one 37, the joint resolution is passed. The bill would bind rail companies and workers to a deal brokered by the Biden administration in September, but voted down by four of the 12 unions involved, representing roughly 115,000 employees. The unions have threatened to strike if an agreement can't be reached before a December 9th deadline. Democrats aligned with labor have criticized Biden's move to intervene and House speaker Nancy Pelosi responded by adding a second vote, adding 7 days per year of paid sick leave for rail workers, a key issue. That measure passed by a much narrower margin two 21 to two O 7 with Republicans overwhelmingly opposed. It now goes to the Senate and White House press secretary karine Jean Pierre says a bill averting a rail strike needs to reach his death by this weekend. As for that second Bill, he does not support any bill or amendment that will delay getting this bill to his desk by this Saturday. Ben Thomas, Washington.

Oath Keepers Founder Stewart Rhodes Convicted of Seditious Conspiracy

"Talk to us first about this conviction because this seems like, according to all the legal experts, this is kind of a big deal as Joe Biden would say. It is hard to prove seditious conspiracy, and this was a good day for the government. Yeah, it absolutely was a great day and for those of you who actually read the book they want to kill Americans, you probably would have had most of the details of the indictment against Stewart road written out in that long narrative form showing he had started this conspiracy way back in 2020. And I've mentioned several times on this show that the reason I wrote that book was the things we were seeing that were happening between the oath keepers and the Proud Boys in August of 2020. And by September, they were exhorting all of their followers to start buying body armor, weapons, equipment, to go out and get tactical training and to be prepared for the post election period. And that's when the true conspiracy began that they were intending to act as a militia for Donald Trump personally. And to affect the overthrow of the government of the United States. So seditious conspiracy with the last time that anyone had been convicted of that was in 1992, 1993 with the guy who blew up the first World Trade Center bomb. Yeah. Um, Abdul Rahman in New York City. Conspiracy to attack the United States. So now Stuart roads is in the exact same position as Al-Qaeda.

Setting the Stage for a World on the Brink of War

"The stage worldwide. Worldwide, we have Iran, North Korea, we have China. We have Russia. We have the terrorist groups in the Middle East. We have war constantly in Ethiopia. Some of the African nations, we have a war in Ukraine right now with Russia, a lot is unsettled on the world stage. And a lot for probably one of the first time since World War II, we're seeing this on sadness leading us closer and closer to conflict. When you look at what North Korea is doing with their nuclear testing, which they just tested and ICBM, which if given the right range and given the proper aerodynamic, could reach the United States. Again, could they actually pull it off? Still remains to be seen. But they're testing on a much quicker and higher note. You've got China who is taking the South China Sea, being very aggressive towards Taiwan, being aggressive toward the neighbors around. Again, just sort of seemingly pushing the envelope. When recently with President Biden, and also, frankly, it was an interesting with freer Trudeau. Justin Trudeau with the Canadian prime minister was very aggressive over what he believed was a leaking of their conversations to the media. And he was very abrupt in how he confronted that. As you go forward. So again, China flexing its muscles on the stage. I think China feels like they're with the American pullback, which we saw again in Obama. We're seeing it again in the Biden administration that there is an opening for China to assert its anonymous. Iran Iran is just Iran. And the human rights violations are still the greatest funder of terrorism in the Middle East. And they have their outlets of regimes Hezbollah and others who carry out their wishes and this is just who Iran is. It's been a destabilizing force in the Middle East for a long time.

If we have a 50 50 Senate again, if Herschel Walker manages to win, that's a huge game changer because the Democrats will lose a bunch of committee chairs, there's a lot of sort of inside baseball stuff that happens if it's 50 50 rather than 51 49.

Now, I suspect a good many of you actually are regular church attenders you go to mass, maybe you go to synagogue, you go to church, whenever the doors are open, if you're a baptist, well you got Sunday morning, then you got Sunday school, and then you got Sunday discipleship training and then Sunday Night services, and then you've got Wednesday, prayer meeting service. Baptist go to church a lot. What can I tell you? But the reality is you folks who go to church, what's happening up on Capitol Hill today is going to impact you and you need to be very, very, very, very concerned. About what the Republicans are going to be up to. And you say, well, Tom, wait a second. I thought the Democrats were in charge of the. So yes, they are in charge. But 12 Republican senators, including Willard Mitt Romney and Lisa Murkowski, have sided with the Democrats to advance the respect for marriage act. Now, here's what we're looking for and we're waiting for. We are waiting for the vote, but we're also waiting for an amendment a vote on an amendment senator Mike Lee and Marco Rubio among others have urged their colleagues to insert language that would protect your preachers because as it now stands. If this law goes into effect, if this law happens, if Joe Biden signs his John Hancock on the piece of paper, then your pastor and your church would be subjected to lawsuit, so if let's just say a gay activist comes and they say, hey, we want to be married in your church and you say, well, we can't do that because you know we're Presbyterian or whatever. And they could, at that point, under this law, sue you.

Ryan Girdusky: The GOP Disenfranchised White College Educated Voters

"I want to begin by asking you to tell us a little bit about what you think happened in the midterms because I know people have sort of been debating this. The last month, you know, what happened, what we can do better next time. And I think that we need to talk about it because that way we can have a better game plan moving forward into 2024 and future elections so that we aren't blindsided again. I think there are a lot of things happen. I don't think there's any singular one lesson to be learned. I think there's multiple lessons. So let's start with the fact that turnout. The media has created this narrative, first of all, there was a quote unquote youthquake that millions of young people angry about abortion came out and voted in masses to elect Democrats. The data so far shows that that didn't happen at all. Didn't happen whatsoever. Republican turnout was actually extremely good in this election. And minority turnout, especially among Democrats, was extremely poor. That's why you're looking at Republicans probably getting over 40% of the Asian vote, somewhere in the high 30s of the Hispanic vote. And the black vote remains basically stagnated about 10%. Where Republicans faltered was among white college educated voters, especially independent voters. They were really disenfranchised with the Republican Party, even though they agree with them on issues like crime and immigration, and they don't approve of Joe Biden's performance in The White House. They were very upset over two big issues one being abortion and the idea of a national abortion ban. And secondly, the narrative over the fact that the 2020 election was so they didn't want to look backwards. They wanted to look forward. And I think that and on top of that, you've had major Republican both candidates and senators like Rick Scott and candidates like masters talking about the idea of privatizing social security, really, really irritated a lot of independent voters. So take us to Arizona, Arizona had a four Republicans win and four Republicans lose. The four who lost ran, it was a Blake Lake of hobby and in that one other guy they ran as a ticket on the 2020 election being stolen. The four who won was Kimberly E Tom Thorne and then two other big Republicans and they won on conservative platform issues. Tom Thorne defeated an incumbent running against CRT running against DEI running against bilingual education. Kimberly Lee Yi is not a moderate Republican. She's very conservative. But their message was looking forward to not backwards and they won. And I think that in states and places where the issues were very quality of life conversations like New York with crime. You serve Republican search and when the election really became about Donald Trump, you saw Republicans lose.

What Happened to the Unified GOP in the Midterms?

What Happened to the Unified GOP in the Midterms?

"When we think back to when we were in power, when Trump was president, sure, there were some never trumpers, but for the most part, we all unified behind Trump. And when I think back to the State of the Union speeches, Trump gave, I can't think of a time when the Republican narrative was more clear. And the Democrats, while clearly opposed, you remember Nancy Pelosi physically ripping up Trump's speech, our whole side was quite unified. But ever since the midterm results of 2022, this unity has slowly disappeared. Some of it started in 2020 and maybe even more in 2021, but after November 8th, 2022, very quickly, conversations began about what went wrong and why, and people immediately started pointing fingers. There was a lot of Monday morning quarterbacking going on as they say. I know many of you have likely seen the infighting taking place. And it's very disturbing. Some say the midterms were great and maybe it wasn't a red wave, but hey, we control Congress. This group has a very positive outlook on how things went. And the party's recent expansion into the black and Hispanic vote were unheard of years ago. In fact, despite ballot shenanigans by the Democrat party, the GOP won the popular vote in the midterms by 6 points. Others say the midterms were far from a red wave. We were expecting a bloodbath, blowout election, where we'd control the House and the Senate, many thought this would happen because Biden seemed so obviously bad. With his policies so obviously harming Americans with record high inflation and people feeling it at the gas pump. But alas, we missed the mark. We overestimated our wins. We counted our chickens before they hatched maybe. Others say we've could have gotten far more seats, but we didn't because of various reasons, whether it was candidate quality or it was lack of fundraising or mismanagement of funds. As McConnell backed Murkowski instead of shabaka and left Blake masters out to dry. There are many reasons why people feel this election did not turn out the way we had hoped. But nevertheless, the point is, they are disappointed, and we are not unified.

"The nation's highest court is taking up a dispute over deportation policy. The Supreme Court will hear arguments today in a legal fight over immigration officers discretion in deciding which people in the country illegally should be deported. Federal appeals courts in Cincinnati and New Orleans reached conflicting decisions over Department of Homeland Security guidance issued in September of 2021 after President Biden was elected the directive prioritize those who posed the greatest risk pausing deportations unless individuals had committed acts of terrorism, espionage, or egregious threats to public safety, while a federal appeals court in Cincinnati overturned a district judge's order that put the policy on hold, Texas and Louisiana sued and won to freeze the guidance under a nationwide court order, saying it violated federal law, and they would face added costs from having to detain people with criminal records. It's the latest example of a strategy that has succeeded in slowing Biden administration initiatives by going to Republican friendly courts. Jennifer King, Washington

"biden" Discussed on The Dinesh D'Souza Podcast

"I'm going to do a getter live Q&A. So if you want to hop on that, you're welcome to do it. I'm going to talk on today's episode about Biden's gas problem. Well, Oprah, I just say Biden's other gas problem. The problem with gas, prices and Biden's attempt to constantly blame it on someone else. I'll examine the arrest of the Colbert film team for unauthorized entry into the U.S. capitol. Are they going to be charged with insurrection? I'm going to examine whether a western sanctions are hurting or helping Russia. And I also consider a couple of new fact checks in my continuing debunking of the debunkers of 2000 mules. This is the next just who's a show. America needs this voice. The times are crazy, and a time of confusion, division, and lies. We need a brave voice of recent understanding and truth. This is the dinesh d'souza podcast. We're all feeling the pinch and in some cases the squeeze on gas prices, gas prices that are reflection of a larger current of inflation. That is self inflicted almost wound on America that has been done by the Biden administration. This is not the same, by the way, as the stagflation and the gas crisis of the 1970s, Jimmy Carter was partly responsible for that as policies were inept, but there was an external driver, and that was OPEC. Now Biden would say in this case, well, there is an external driver. It's Ukraine, but the difference, of course, is that the United States has plenty of ability to meet its own gas needs. I just filled up the car, I forget $85. And I didn't start with it being on rock bottom empty, that you just were. Now 5 20 in Texas, and this means it's going to be 6, $7 in other places. Now, Biden is talking about, well, here's Biden. My message is simple. Do the companies running gas stations bring down the price you are charging at the pump. Do it now. Do it today. So this is what we get from this unhinged character. He doesn't well, I won't say he doesn't realize he does realize, but he nevertheless says these absurd things that ignore markets ignore supply and demand, ignore the effect of his own policies, ignore the fact that if you rescinded his own executive orders, things would immediately get better. Look, first of all, the gas companies don't run the gas stations. Most of these gas stations are mom and pop own, their franchises typically the owners of these gas stations make two to three cents a gallon and they don't set the price. I mean, the price is set really by the price of getting the gas, the taxes, the distribution and marketing, the refining, and there's also the global supply and demand. Now, Biden has antagonized Saudi Arabia, and so Saudi Arabia is not exactly willing to play fiddle. You may say with Biden, Biden has talked about going there. In July, we'll see if that happens. And so Biden blames everybody but himself for this. By and large, a United States makes currently U.S. oil companies deliver about 16 million barrels of oil a day. The country uses about 19 million. Do we have the other 3 million barrels? We can certainly get them. Biden doesn't want to get them. In fact, he thinks it's kind of a good thing that we're suppressing the oil and gas industry in this country so that we can make a transition to fossil fuels. He has closed three refineries. He is canceled permits and leases and Alaska and the gulf. He's reduced leases on federal land. He's told financial institutions not to lend money to oil companies. So this is an aggressive anti fossil fuels campaign by the Biden administration, and now they are in a very awkward position. They're sort of telling the oil companies we want you to manufacture more now, but long term we want you to plan for kind of phasing down what you're doing. And there's even been some suggestion that oil companies should get into the sort of climate change business and invest in alternative fuels. Well, the Chevron CEO, this is Mike worth. Sent a letter to Biden, where he basically said, listen, you've got to stop this demagoguery. A quote, addressing the situation requires thoughtful action and the willingness to work together, not political rhetoric. Your administration has largely sought to criticize and at times vilify our industry. Now, this is written in the measured prose of the corporate bureaucrat. He's actually being grossly understated. Biden's declared war on these guys, and these guys need to fight back. The tone of this letter to me is a little bit defensive. Biden recently attacked ExxonMobil. Literally saying that they are quote making more money than God. We're still God doesn't make money. But anyway, this was kind of a crude phrase, implying that this is price gouging by the oil companies. But no, this is ultimately a problem that's caused by two things. One is the United States decision to penalize Russia by imposing sanctions. We're not going to buy Russian oil. I'll talk later in the podcast, but what impact all of this is having on Russia as it turns out the Russians may be doing just fine. And so this ends up being something that a sanction that backfires on the sanction or without having a whole lot of impact on the sanctioning. Gas prices have been rising since Biden took office. This has been this started before the Ukraine war, and it's continued, perhaps exacerbated after that. Continuing with Mike Warren's letter, oil companies need clarity and consistency on policy matters ranging from leases and permits and federal lands to the ability to permit and build critical infrastructure to the proper role of regulation that considers costs and benefits. So here you have a phrase that seems to have gone out of fashion. Costs and benefits. In other words, you weigh one against the other. It's a kind of a balance sheet of risks. And that's kind of how we all live our lives, right? Am I gonna, there's a risk if I get in my car that I might get into a car crash, but that's a low risk and at the same time I have to get to work. So the benefits exceed the risks. And this kind of measured rational evaluation, which we apply to our own lives, which should apply to all economic policy, seems to have gone out the window in.

"I'm back with investigative journalist video journalist drew Hernandez, drew, we've been talking about your work in D.C. and the protesters and the double standards. Let's pivot to the southern border because you have spent some time in Yuma, Arizona, previously you are in the Rio Grande valley. You're able to see up close what is happening with the border. So give us paint a picture of what you would see on a typical day or a typical night when you're out there. I think the area that you mentioned is called the gap. Tell us what the gap is and tell us what you saw. Yeah, so specifically the gap Yuma, Arizona. This was maybe about a week ago, two weeks ago, we were down there. And this is happening every single night. So before I give your viewers kind of the picture of what's taking place, this is happening every single night. We were there between 12 midnight to 5 in the morning because we were there trying to get some coverage during the day. And obviously the Arizona sun is just intense and it's crazy. So down there at the gap, it's just open. The wall that president Trump was working on down there at human Arizona was about to be completed, but obviously because of the Biden administration. It was brought to a halt. And so when you go down there, it's like a graveyard of just border wall just laying there. We call it the ruins next to the gap where it's millions of dollars of border wall that should have been put up and it's just an open border literally right down there in Yuma, Arizona. So we were down there during the day trying to get some coverage, but there is really nothing going on because of the heat. So one of the border patrol agents stopped us and he said, come back between midnight and 5 in the morning and I promise you, you're going to see what we're seeing on a daily basis on a nightly basis. So when we showed up, sure enough, a group and when they got sent over because the cartels, right? These cartels are dangerous. They take advantage of these migrants. They rape the women, the children, they exploit them. They'll send them from Mexico into the United States so that the border patrol can just intake them, put them on a bus and then send them on a plane wherever they claim to have family, but so this specific night when they were sent from the cartels, I actually went to the cartel, one of the they call them coyotes, like the ground runners. I went up to him and I asked him, how many of these people are there? It was this massive group dinesh. It was huge. It was, and I asked him, how many of this is how many people are here in just this one group. And he said between 608 hundred in one group that is huge for one group. Just sent straight in the United States and all the footage people can see it on my Twitter drew H live, just hundreds of people coming from Mexico straight into the United States through the open border and the border patrol because of the Biden administration has activated our border troll a border patrol to essentially be an Uber service for these illegals to get into the United States of America. Scott free. And it was a huge group mostly male dinesh, okay? We're seeing mostly males down here. So the mainstream media, the Biden administration will come out and say, oh, there are asylum seekers. It's mostly women and children. They need our help. That's why we need these NGOs and these Catholic organizations to help these poor families because they're fleeing persecution and fleeing climate change. I guess that's a thing now too. Like climate change persecution, I don't know. Anyways. It's all a lie, danesh, you know this. So when they say that, it's not necessarily true because we are seeing the ratio of more men, males, like these dudes are they look fit, they look healthy in the sense that they look well fed. I mean, you take a look at the ratio down there and it's not the case dinesh. There's a lot more men coming down. They're the southern border illegally. And we have no idea. You asked the border patrol dinesh, you asked them, do we know who these people are if they do have a file in the United States if they're a known rapist or a murderer, they do have those files, and then they could deport them immediately. If they do, they know, but if they don't, we have no idea. And we're talking about millions of people dinesh and since this administration was installed, millions have come across the southern border, and this specific night in Yuma, we were seeing people come from Russia from Georgia, from India, from Afghanistan, not just Honduras and Guatemala, not these Latin American countries, all of these foreign countries because this administration has signaled to the world that now that orange man is gone, now is your time to come into the United States of America. And that's what we're seeing. And we don't even know who these people are. That's what's so dangerous about this. And the border patrol will tell you just that. And I mean, drew, it also makes an open mockery, doesn't it? Of the legal immigration process. I mean, if I were standing in a long line to be legally admitted and someone tells me, hey, just show up at the Rio Grande or just show up in Yuma, you can cross a ditch and you'll be put on a bus and dispatch on the country. I mean, for a guy going through the legal process that makes you kind of a sucker, doesn't it? Absolutely. I mean, we've been here in stories. We've been talking to people down there as well. I mean, I even personally have in my own family. Some individuals that are doing it legally. They're doing it legally. They want to do it legally. And they have been put essentially on back order for nearly two years because of this. So what people don't understand, and obviously the far left doesn't understand anything. You know this. But it's like they say they're pro immigrant. So if we do legal immigration, the actual legal immigrants that are doing things the right way actually end up getting the short end of the stick and putting on a back order and they can't come into the United States, possibly the people we actually do want here that are going to be productive to society and add to American values that are pro Americana pro patriot that will forever be grateful that they're here. And contribute to what we're doing, the American Dream. No, no, they would rather just be illegal immigration, risk little girls getting abducted, little boys getting abducted and raped, wrist women being abducted and raped. They don't care. This is all about, this is the great reset, build back better globalist agenda where they're importing the third world because they want a controllable society. They don't want any dinesh d'souza's ever making a documentary ever again exposing their election fraud. They don't want to drew Hernandez on the ground, exposing just exactly what's happening. They don't want anybody that is aware of our patriotic constitutional values, speaking out against this regime. So just import a bunch of desperate people that will never question you ever again. In my opinion, that's what this is. Well, drew, I think you've summed it up in a very powerful way. Drew, thanks for joining us..

"I'm praying for his quick recovery. This was an attempted modern day lynching. No one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate. Signed Kamala Harris. This was Kamala Harris in the wake of the reports of Jussie Smollett's victimization at the hands of some vicious trumpsters. These are maga people who supposedly confronted small at well. You know that the whole story is now unwound, we know that the perpetrator of the hate crime has been caught. His name as it turns out is Jussie Smollett. And of course, Kamala Harris wasn't alone, Biden, there were so many others, Cory Booker, who expressed the public sympathy for Smollett, obviously automatically accepted his story. And I'm contrasting all that all those sickeningly false claims with what the judge said in sentencing Smollett yesterday. And I love the fact that the judge sort of didn't hold back. He was very candid and he didn't mince words. I mean, I'll give you a few of his quotes. He's speaking directly to Jussie. You've turned your life upside down by your misconduct and shenanigans. You've destroyed your life as you knew it. There's nothing any sentencing judge could do to you that could compare to the damage you've done to yourself. Now, while I agree with this, I will say that this is a little bit of an understatement here because what Jussie Smollett did was I hate crime. That's the one thing the judge didn't say that when you falsely accuse a racial group of doing something to you that they didn't do. You're trying to falsely pin the blame on them. That's a hate crime and it's a hate crime directly based upon race. But let's continue with the judge's comments to see. You premeditated this crime to an extent that is amazing. So this is not something you just thought up in the spur of the moment. You recruited the two Nigerians, the so called brothers, you paid them, they went out and bought the news and all the other equipment. The judge continues to just see your profoundly arrogant selfish and narcissistic. Absolutely true. You are not a victim of a hate crime. You're not a victim of a homophobic crime. You are a charlatan. Again, all true, but understates the matter because while Jussie isn't the victim of a hate crime, he is, in fact, the perpetrator of one. And then my favorite really here, the judge, your performance on the witness stand can only be described as pure perjury. In other words, Jussie was lying and he's never stopped lying and we'll see that even after his sentencing, he's still lying. So I think in a way that, you know, to me, the most important outcome in the Jussie Smollett case is that the truth is finally out. It's been adjudicated and the judge in a sense sort of presented it with almost a kind of oracular dignity. And the sick pattern of leftist lies that began with Jussie himself, but was amplified by a dishonest media. By the way, cut from the same cloth as Jussie himself, this is finally been shut down by annul nonsense judge. And here's the sentence, and I think this is I'm actually pretty happy about it to W is like, this guy's gonna get away with it. He's gonna get absolutely nothing. Debbie always sort of takes the most pessimistic view of things. And she's often right. But in this case, the judge did in fact bring down the hammer 30 months probation, 150 days in Cook County jail, and you know what? Jossie was sent right to Cook County jail, no walking out and checking in later, go to jail right now. $25,000 fine, but in addition, a $120,000 in restitution, so Jesse is gonna be paying for this offense and I'm really glad to hear about that. But as he's leaving, jossie gives the black power salute and he basically says, oh, he starts talking about the fact that if, you know, if something happens to him in jail, he didn't commit suicide. He wants people to know right now. And so, so Debbie's like, you know what? This guy is staging. Well, Debbie thinks he's mentally ill, but I also think he's staging his next tape crime. So the ocean Darrow brothers, I mean, they might have moved on to other things, like they might be getting a call anytime soon from Jussie Smollett.

"Faced with oil prices that are high and moving higher, Joe Biden is doubling down and declaring as he just did. Quote, it is simply not true that my administration or policies are holding back domestic energy production. I mean, it's incredible that this guy can look into the cameras and say this with a straight face. And then the media just kind of nods like, yeah, that's right. He's speaking truth. Well, he's not. And since you're not going to get the YouTube or the Facebook fact checkers, checking Biden on this one, they just assume that what he says is true. They only fact check the other side, which is our side. Let me fact check Biden on this. Biden himself is been quoted saying multiple times, including in the presidential debates that he wants to end end fossil fuels. And he wants to end fossil fuels in America. He froze new drilling permits and stopped leases on federal lands. In fact, when he first took office, he moved to ban new oil and gas leases on federal lands, and that's by the way a huge slice of U.S. energy. Now that measure was stopped by the courts, but not for lack of trying by the Biden administration. One of the things that Democrats were saying and this is long before Putin invaded the Ukraine is that we have plenty of energy to meet our domestic needs. We don't need more. So you had the Democrats and you had the media. Basically, promulgating the message that, yeah, we are cutting back on oil and gas and that's a good thing because we don't really, we don't really need it. Of course, no one's going to forget. I don't think you are, that Biden shot down the Keystone XL pipeline on his very first day in office, he signed an executive order, and this was part of his campaign he himself said, the reverse a hundred or more Trump era policies.

"Here's a headline that should get your attention. This is from Fox New York. Biden administration to fund programs to hand out crack pipes. This is such this is a kind of headline. In fact, the Babylon B did a little post and Kyle Mann from the beast says if one of my writers at pitched his headline I'd have rejected it as being too absurd. But, well, it's not entirely absurd as we're gonna find out in a minute. So here are some detail from really a series of news reports. Apparently the Biden administration is concerned about quote advancing racial equity. Racial equity in what? Apparently in drug consumption in the consumption of illegal drugs, and they're thinking here, they refer to the opioid epidemic, but they're also talking about the crack cocaine and crystal meth, epidemics, and apparently Biden's decided that one solution to this epidemic, what normal people would think you are promoting the epidemic is to supply not just crack pipes, but the crack paraphernalia, the whole so called kit. Now think about this. If you bought a crack pipe with your own money and you started buying all this drug paraphernalia, that would be a crime. But for the government to do it, it's not a crime. It's apparently okay. And Jen Psaki was asked about this, the press secretary. And she goes, no, no, no, this is really misinformation. Our kit does contain a lot of paraphernalia for drug users, but it doesn't contain the actual crack pipe. So The White House is pushing back at the idea that they're kind of handing out the crack pipes. They do agree that they're handing out what they call safe smoking kits. This is an echo of the so called safe sex kits of earlier decades. And apparently there's alcohol, swabs and lip balm and clean syringes and other material. So I don't think there's really any doubt here that the Biden administration is in the name of combating drugs. Actually promoting

Now they're gonna pay a huge political price for this because building a bridge can be difficult, but remember as Barack Obama used to say, the arc of history always bends towards justice, whatever that nonsense is that they always talk about. As we've called it before, Joe Biden's the kamikaze president, he's the means to the end president, he is the machiavellian intermediary president. He's the person that the entire left all kind of knows is never really going to be relevant or running for office again, but they're going to get everything they possibly can get done that might otherwise be unpopular to change the rules of the game so that they never actually have to compete again.

Some 800 people showed up to The White House earlier this week to watch President Biden put his name to paper and sign the $1 trillion infrastructure rail into law. And if the words of praise for the bill are any indication, Democrats see his agenda as nothing short of transformational. Your agenda is historic, transformative, and the biggest boldest investment in our country's history. Now they're getting one of the largest infrastructure bills ever. It's historic legislation means for everyday Americans. President Dwight Eisenhower signed the national interstate and defense highways act in the middle of the Cold War. And today, president Joe Biden will sign the infrastructure investment and jobs act into law. Coupled with the social and climate bill in Congress now, Biden's agenda may top $3 trillion. We are talking about real money here. And how does that stack up to the Democrats of years past that Biden and others like to compare themselves to? We are joined by national political correspondent John McCormick to find out. Welcome back. Hey, thanks. So what's the answer? How does Biden stack up to FDR in Lyndon Johnson the two democratic presidents who had the biggest social agendas of the last century? Well, the early evidence suggests he won't be able to match those two democratic icons in part because we're just living in vastly different economic and political times. We tried to sort of benchmark this by looking at the rate of spending compared to GDP that FDR did as part of the new deal. And then what Biden is already gotten part of the bipartisan infrastructure Bill through Congress plus this very large social and green energy legislation that he still wants to get past. So he looked at the price tags as a shared GDP and really when you do it that way, the new deal spending is still two to three times larger than what Biden is likely to get through. So it's Biden's legislation is a big deal, but it's just not in the league of FDR or LBJ's great society legislation of the 60s. Of course, it's not all determined by GDP and dollars, right? I mean, what about the substance? Any idea of how lasting the impact of these bills might be in comparison? Yeah, it's always hard to know, but, you know, Republicans are poised to potentially gain control of one or both chambers of Congress next year. They're going to be tempted to potentially roll some of this stuff back if they have the votes. And also the funding of a lot of these programs because of the way federal budgeting works, the spending is not guaranteed for eternity. It's always hard to take a benefit back after you give one to the American public if it's something that's popular, but in this case, several of these items in the social spending agenda Bill are really only financed for 5 to 6 years. So future congresses will have to decide whether this is something that they want to renew or not. And of course, it's going to depend on what the country's political control is like at that time. You report that big spending, these large expansions of government tend to happen after national crises. What do you mean? History shows that they're oftentimes is long-term spending after a major incident in the country, the Cold War helped spawn the intern state highway system, the 9 11 terrorist attacks produced new consolidated agencies to deal with Homeland Security and national intelligence. And so economists call this actually the ratchet effect. And it's something that once something is introduced into federal spending after a crisis, the spending ratchets up and it doesn't tend to ratchet back down. Whether the current crisis that we're in the COVID-19 pandemic is similar to that sort of as hard to know because the economy has snapped back much more quickly than it did say after the depression. So, you know, there may not be as much sort of public angst and desire for programs to continue. Does Biden have the public support to expand the government like he wants to? And how does that public support compare to his predecessors? This is actually a question that Gallup asked routinely in its polling. And what it found was in 2000 Americans were more supportive of an active role for government. And you can kind of understand that. The pandemic was just breaking and it was at its peak. And so people were looking to government for how are we going to get through this crisis? But then we saw here in 2021, the numbers sort of inverted in September Gallup asked the question again and they found that attitudes had shifted back to more sort of a hands off approach and 52% said the government is doing too many things that should be left to individuals and businesses and 43% want the government to do more to solve the country's problems. So just in the course of one year between 2020 and 2021, we saw the numbers invert in terms of people's views of what the government should or should not be doing. In Biden's facing a federal debt level that no other president has done before. Does that limit his new deal ambitions? Yeah, it does because, you know, the public does worry about federal spending and debt. It's not sort of a day to today or bread and butter issue, but it is something that is sort of in everybody's back of their brain that this stuff is going to have to be paid for at some point. And the current annual budget deficits and the total federal debt have been running at levels roughly around a 100% of GDP and at levels that I've been the highest since World War II. So that's going to make for a different environment than times when Roosevelt was dealing with trying to get legislation passed or LBJ was trying to get legislation passed when the debt and deficit just was not nearly as large. Most Republicans, and even some Democrats have started to sound the alarm on the cost of all the spending. Does history tell us how long we may have to wait to learn the true cost of these new programs or the expansion of the existing programs? Yeah, it does take time and it will depend on whether these programs become ongoing programs or whether there are things that just last for.

At least in con- we had an embassy and americans came to the embassy then they got evacuated from from there and a couple of other places. Now we have ten to fifteen thousand americans in and around kabul. They don't know where to go. The embassies closed. It's damn near impossible to get to the airport or very difficult and very dangerous. And there's i mean there's not even a helicopter at the embassy alternative.

I mean if indeed the chinese have sway with the taliban and the russians diplomatic channels with them and perhaps they are being exploited secretly. And i don't know about it. That's entirely possible. But but they stated that biden hasn't even talked to the leaders. You'd think that that's not a conversation that starts at your lower middle level and bourbons. Its way up.

"When you watch the biden team they have a playbook for how they handle crises. And that playbook is you. Don't respond right away. They would wait it out. They were taking their time. There were think about their messaging and then they came out and always seem to work for them. This time. it did not work for them. The president was hardly visible as he deposited his weekend retreats at camp david he left it to his spokesperson in a statement to reiterate that he does not regret his decision. An orderly drawdown is the phrase. The administration is sticking with in backfired. Royally and that is because he is the commander in chief. Commander in chief cannot be seen sitting alone at a table and camp david when this crisis is happening in that is what's coming down on new speak today the unfolding situation afghanistan developments that taking place in the last week. The steps were taking address rapidly-evolving events so what he had to do by speaking to the nation was first of all just show himself but also just to try to bring back. That confidence stands squarely behind my decision. Twenty years i've learned the hard that there was never a good time. Withdraw us forces. I'm jeremy siegel this is. Politico dispatch and today. This is without question the worst moment of his presidency natasha correctly on the blame game over afghanistan. In how it's placed president biden in a by this is the most incoming he has taken and the biggest probably disappointment. I would say from people even his own party even if they're not saying publicly they're saying it privately and that is because you know biden had really put himself forward as he is the foreign policy guy he's the quote unquote adult in the room. Ladies and gentlemen political wisdom halls that americans. the american public doesn't vote on foreign policy. But i think that's an old way of thinking. He said he separated himself from the pack over and over in the primary because he had all of this experience as vice president and for decades in the senate and of course on for relation senate committee twenty nineteen foreign policy is domestic policy in my view and domestic policy is foreign policy. They're deeply connected. Deeply connected set of choices. We make about how to advance the american way of life and our vision for the future and this was an area foreign policy. You know pulling out of afghanistan. This was an area where frankly people thought okay. No no one's gonna have this better than joe biden and so what ended up happening here. The speed with which the taliban took over afghanistan the us deploying more troops after the fact you know days after all of this is happening. I mean it's just it is. It is so goes up against the grain of everything that biden said he was. I think the most troubling. Then you're is. You're seeing the desperation of these afghans trying to get out terrified of the taliban. You know you're here in congress. People talk about how people are reaching out to them and saying that they're making suicide pacts in their in their communities because they're so terrified of the taliban kidnapping there they're girls. It could not get worse for joe biden at this moment because those headlines in the next couple of weeks i mean they will be relentless and those will go right back at biden fairly or unfairly but it will. It'll be on him. I wanna talk about how the administration has handled the fallout from this especially given the headlines. That are coming back to bite him because you mentioned that strategy. They've had of trying to let the dust settle in these situations and how that hasn't exactly worked here. There were days where americans watched terrifying images Terrifying stories coming out of afghanistan and didn't hear from their president. How would you characterize the way. The administration handled the situation over the weekend as the fall of kabul unfolded. Some of it is. You know it's just it's plainly it's unspeakable you can't really spin it. What do you say. There are scenes of panic and pandemonium in couple airport. Today as desperate people pour onto the runway trying to feed the country in what can only be described as chaotic exodus. Now people are literally kicked clinging on the us military our across as they tried to take off the us is in charge of their. You know you did have. Lincoln dispatch to the to the morning shows and saying this is not saigon. This is not our saigon back. This is manifestly not saigon the fact that matters this we went to afghanistan twenty years ago with one every time. He said that it just brought more attention to that parallel. The images that we're seeing is there's a lot of reminiscent of the last days of the vietnam war shows the rest of the world that when we're so dead set on doing something. We can't even orchestrate something that we've been staging for a long time in a way it looks like side-on two point zero to me. This is the beginning of biden's supposedly the beginning of a two week vacation for biden. He was going to go to camp david for part of it and to rehoboth beach back in delaware and they released a photo over the weekend of joe biden sitting at a table. A very long expansive table. All of the seats are empty. So he's sitting there alone staring at a screen and just it's real question of the imagery. Here pressure is growing on the biden administration to respond to that turmoil and afghanistan as the president faces criticism over. Us troops withdrawal obviously. They're trying to show that he was engaged in this his engagement. But just the image of the president sitting alone staring at a screen in the middle of this crisis it did not convey a lot of confidence to the american people and they're just getting really getting ridiculed for it. Republicans here are seeing vulnerabilities. And they're they're just jumping on them. There's you know they're trying to cast biden as you know. He failed cure somebody who said he was going to be this command tough commander in chief and he failed and it is very political and even in the midst of this crisis so on monday afternoon After the white house was criticized over it silence. The nation did finally hear from biden in a speech and one of the central messages that he had was that he did not regret his decision and that he didn't want to hand down this war to another american president. I will not repeat the mistakes we've made in the past mistake of staying in fighting indefinitely conflict is not in the national interest of the united states. This is a conflict that began under president. Bush vice president dick cheney and defense secretary donald rumsfeld played a big role in pushing the start of the war it continued under president obama and president trump. I mean is there validity to what biden said yesterday in the argument that if this does impact his legacy as as president he's essentially taking the fall for american leaders.

"It has no benefit to you as an american citizen as taxpayer as an individual was forced to pay these tolls. It is a lose lose all the way all the way around for the american people. It's a lose lose in regard to actually improving our infrastructure. It's a lose lose when it comes to the amount of money you're going to have to spend and it's a lose lose when it comes to resources for the federal government because as i mentioned the federal government pays that money back to the private companies with interest with interest. So that's what the reality of the situation is. And i don't think that progressive should vote in favor of this. Bipartisan bill under any circumstance. Because what this is. It's reminiscent of what obama passed after the two thousand eight economic collapse. What he did was essentially provide a massive giveaway to hedge funds and private equity firms. Who then went off. I mean there were. there was a fire sale. They went off and they got the best deals on a massive amount of real estate which they then turned Rental property and priced ordinary americans. Completely out of the housing market and started under obama now with biden's infrastructure bill. You have corporate interests with their eyes set on really Draining what they can out of the few resources we have left in our public infrastructure so Last couple points here that are so important and number one. Did you know that trump at the same exact proposal. Yeah he did yeah. So when when trump proposed democrats and the media were like. Oh this is outrageous bind proposals. Same thing they're like bravo. Bipartisan compromise biden is such a great leader. It's amazing it's sickening. By the way have you heard any of these facts in mainstream media. Have you heard them talking about asset recycling they tell you that you're going to pay tolls and fees the rest of your life. That's what we're celebrating with. This bipartisan compromise. How funny they didn't tell you any of that right and it's interesting. I wonder who the corporate media is working for. Now we work for you guys. So i'm gonna read a member. Because i hadn't thought of this point and further devastating kid tested bureau approved their handle on our website. Ty t. dot com slash join. You literally joined the show. We read your comments on these stories. This person wrote in my favorite part of driving is having a corporation intentionally create traffic congestion and they give me the option to pay them to avoid the mess they mate and honestly i had not thought of it that way it's not just that you're paying tolls is not just that they're not going to upgrade the roads david incentive to create a terrible road that forces you to take the toll version which they charge you so much more the worst they make the road the more money they make are we insane. This is what our government is giving to us and we're supposed to celebrate an immediate cheers on look. They're done this in other countries. It's not just australia. Where they privatize roads and bridges and turnaround zana. Told you and i made a great point in our production meeting. This is exactly what they did in russia where the olive works. Just everything all grab everything. They made all the money me. Gazillions of dollars and the russian people got totally screw. They did it. In bolivia where they privatize the water in nearly led to a revolution dolan. Good side of that is that they've been electing almost ever. Since with the exception of our coups from time to time. Okay but the told the believings you cannot collect water because we gave the water to a private company. And so this is where we're headed guys. They're selling off the country bit by bit while pretending to build it. We got to take a break but when we come back.

"Favor. Fifty five opposed six abstentions. So for people. Who didn't grow up in the catholic. Faith when is communion communion is considered the central kind of right and ritual of catholics. That keeps them literally. Little see like in communion with each other and with god and that's when people have been to a catholic service when you see them go up to the priest and the priest can give them like a wafer and drink that represents the body and blood of jesus so it means it's this kind of mysterious ritual where god is supposed to be in you at that moment and under catholic teaching. You're supposed to be in a certain state when you when you do this. And over the centuries catholic teaching has changed about. Exactly how communion works like when it first started in the early centuries. A lot of people didn't take communion because you know there was such a kind of emphasis on the rigidity of being in the right state and then it became more popular and then they had different rules about how often each year supposed to confess and take communion whether you're supposed to be fasting for many hours before hand or just one so there's been there's been fluxes in sort of its popularity but i mean it's become much more common and regular part of people's worship in recent years and then why is this such an important part of the experience of being catholic in catholicism which is the biggest faith group in the united states. There's a lot of what you'd call kind of powerful ritual you know when you think of catholic churches here like this ornate and there's pictures and sculptures of jesus on the cross and and the smell of the incense and you know it's a very intense kind of body leave people say often it's like a very bodily kind of faith so you have this image of some of ingesting god and being one with god so i mean. It's it's usually capitalized community. But it's also little see like that. You are saying you know that you are part of this community part of part of the catholic faith when you when you take communion and some people i mean especially right now having been you know so many people being away from that service for for the past year for many people whether they go each week or they go a couple times a year. It's very like intimate part of their their life. They're an technically. You know. I mean if you're you're supposed to say confession regularly you're going through these rituals that you embrace and believe that. Means so much to you and communion is sort of the culminating one in the trash can just like stop someone from doing this in. It feels like you know stopping some worn from parang rate. Yeah well it's i mean. Most people would tell you like this doesn't happen. I mean that shirt dino. Catholics don't get grilled like when they show it when they appear for communion. What technically it's supposed to meet. The onus is on the worshiper rate. Because you're it's supposed to be that you present yourself when you know you're in the right state of mind and catholicism talks a lot about the primacy of conscience saw these things are kind of weighing in the picture But the difference with something like this is. That biden is a public official. I mean for people. Who are you know a little bit older. They can certainly remember. The church would not give community people who were a divorced and remarried outside of the church. Where people who were living together. Who weren't married. It's something that i think was at one time. Like more community enforced where know the church was was more rigid and people sort of police each other more and it just wasn't done you know if you're in a situation where you're living with somebody or you had a child and you weren't married or whatever that whatever the situations were and you hadn't gone through the process of confessing and getting permission. You just didn't go now. Obviously the country is you know has matured diverse views and catholics. American catholics have very similar views as the american public. In general when you pull them on all these things whether that's support for abortion rights which a majority of catholics hold to lgbtq rights and stuff like that never mind getting into sexual issues you know whether that's capital punishment or helping the poor and that kind of thing. So i mean you don't have people being turned away except you have had especially since the nineteen eighties with some people call. It's drizzly like a wafer watch where politicians catholic politicians who supported abortion. Rights have been have been watched. And so you had mario cuomo and dick durbin and annoy and john kerry had many bishops in two thousand four when he was running threatening to not give him communion. Actually joe biden was denied communion. Last fall in the southeast. When he was. I think he was just on the campaign trail How did president putin respond to oldness. President biden has barely spoken the word abortion since he's been president. I mean he's really. We've reached out to him for comment. You know last week. And over weeks of preparing for this and they. There's never been any comment from his administration. He was asked on friday about it. The catholic bishops are moving on this resolution that would prove prevent you and others who've supported abortion from receiving communion. Are you concerned about the rift in the catholic church. I feel personally about that. That's a private matter. I don't think that's happen. I'm assuming he meant. I don't think me others will be turned away from communion but we have a abortion rights case coming before the supreme court soon so it really puts his presidency in a conflict with part of his church and he talks about his faith but not not much. I mean he talks more about it in a personal way. He doesn't kind of in allies teachings in a lot of detail. He talks about it. Were in a personal way and the comfort and role that it plays in his life immediate. This feels like it could be perceived as a double standard because you know a bill barr attorney general under. The trump administration is catholic. And the he revved up the federal death penalty in was he censured for it. Well see this is right okay. So whether when you look at other things whether it's you know some catholics have raised. You know fell barring the death penalty or catholic lawmakers and the treatment of immigrants The you know muslim travel ban. I mean many things you know. Racism is against catholic teaching as well. You know cats. Teaching is heavily focused on welcoming immigrants and refugees. So then you kind of get into this. You know what you. Sometimes you'll hear people say while there's things that are you know basically Policies that are sort of subject to difference of opinion. Like you could say you know. Everybody wants to help the poor and help immigrants but they have different ideas about how they should do that. So the death penalty is sort of in. This category has been i mean. Recently per pope francis said you know the catholic church is officially against the death penalty. It had always been almost almost almost that but it didn't push all the way over because there was a sense that basically under criminal justice sometimes this is justice that you have justice up against life. This is not an innocent life. The way a fetuses so people who support you know what happened with bill barr would say technically. It's different so then you kind of get into this will technically is really abortion. The only thing if you're saying you're supportive of life. Okay so there is a difference between you know a fetus a crazed killer or something like that but the bottom line is. What's the goal of catholic teaching. You know what is it that if you're going to kind of negotiate to the you know splitting hairs. What's the crux of it. President biden is only the second catholic to serve as president of the united states. What do you feel like. His presidency tells us about the state of the catholic church right now.
