"All right, Billy Cunningham, the great American and of course there's a disaster happening in Southwest Florida. In fact, through Central Florida, there's a disaster happening in the Ukraine. There's a disaster happening on the southern border and I see that earlier today and one of the talk shows that there's a spending spree about to begin in the Congress. I thought there was one. I thought the last almost two years was a spending spree, but oh no. We now learned that Nancy Pelosi who really belongs in an assisted living is going to put together more spending bills if the Democrats lose one or two houses of the Congress, which I hope is a certainty with all information coming from Washington as Congress and bred Wen strip and Brad wenstrom, welcome again to the Bill Cunningham show and congressman one thing that's come up that I know you're familiar with because you've been a watchdog when it comes to spending. Is that when superstorm sandy struck New York City? There were a bunch of Republicans who voted against relief for sandy and the superstorm. It's because about 20, about 2018, 18 or 20% of the money was going to the storm relief and the other 85% or so was going toward a bunch of Christmas tree liberal items and many Republicans said, I want to vote for the relief, but I can't vote for this 85 to 90% of other crap. Do you see the same stuff happening with a hurricane Ian? Well, most likely we will, because that's just been the protocol that they follow. And it's not only that, you know, when you look back at sandy, it was a situation where we're asking the next generation to pay for things. And we do this and say, oh, you know, we got to do it. We've got to help them out. Everybody wants to help them out. But if we're really doing something, if we're really doing something for this generation, let's pay for it for this generation. And so that always seems to be the problem too, is we've got to do it. It's an emergency. Oh, it's all here. And then you are pointing out. You're tying all these other things. And then it makes it untenable. And of course, they like to use that. This is usually stuff they like to do right before an election because then they can say, oh, well, you were against trying to help people. Well, I'm all for trying to help people. But you're against paying for it. You want someone else to pay for it. That's half the problem. And the other issue is this, that we have money flying out the door, like bats at a hell on Easter morning. I mean, we got 50 to $60 billion going to the Ukraine and congressman, I don't know, I don't know if I went with the Ukraine to win or lose. I think I want them to win, but what is the victory mean? Doesn't mean a nuclear bomb. What does that mean? Nuclear low yield weapon. And so of course we all went to Ukrainians to win. However, at what price and so no one ever says, okay, we're piling more debt, which is currently about $32 trillion on the future generations to pay the interest on that going up one percentage point. As you know is about $310 billion every year per one point. If it goes up four or 5 points, that's an extra $1 trillion. We got to borrow money to pay the interest. At some point you got to say, okay, how do we pay for this currently? And so get ready for the next couple of weeks before the election metastasizes in about four weeks to what's going to happen is there will be more bills introduced to help the great folks in Florida, but it's going to be hard to vote for things when the Christmas tree is loaded. And do you buy into what some are saying there was the senator this morning who talked about what's going to happen if the Democrats lose to Congress in the Senate is out until after the election, as is the house. And so you're going to know what's going on. And so you're going to face a bill to middle of November. That's going to be literally hundreds of billions of more dollars, not about relief for hurricane Ian is going to be about these other things. So in the past, how have you, how have you reconciled what you want to happen with what the Democrats throw into the Bill to make you look bad politically? Well, it gets very difficult when you don't have control in any of the chambers that get the control of spending. We say that Congress controls suspending. And right now you have Democrats that don't care about running up to debt and we're seeing that we're paying more and more on our debt. We're paying more and more on the interest on our debt. And it eats up most of the budget that we happen to have. And the beat goes on. I have never seen anything like this in my ten years that I've been in Congress. Of course it's seems to be a little bit better, obviously, a little bit better on the spending when Republicans are in control. But it's a problem where we, first of all, big picture, we have to address mandatory spending that goes out the door without a vote all the time. And we have to take a look back on some of those things. I'm hoping that people understand this and put Republicans in charge in November on both in both the House and the Senate because right now with them controlling the house the Senate and The White House, anything goes and just keep writing the checks. Just keep passing passing it out. And that's a problem for everybody, but we've got to turn the ship around and I hope Americans understand that and make a change. And one, you know, for a better economy, you know, and we did the tax cuts and jobs act. And we reduced taxes, more people went to work and revenues to the government went up. The problem wasn't revenues, the problem was still spending spending spending. On the issue of Ukraine this morning, some of the talk shows dealt with a low yield nuclear device. I Googled it. What is it? How many megatons Hiroshima was about 15? Megatons, which is a terrible event. Some of these can be carried in a truck, artillery shell could be a bomb, could be could be any way of delivering it. You're on the intelligence committee. You're one of the leaders of that. Isn't a real possibility, some say 10%, 30%, that if the losses and the Ukraine continue to pile up, now Vladimir Putin would actually do that. Do we have to game plan for that kind of stuff

"Who's been recognized as radios best. The recipient of not one but two prestigious Marconi awards, for his broadcast excellence, the one and only Bill Cunningham. I'm Billy Cunningham to great American, of course, a couple of days ago on Friday We got inflation numbers, core inflation in which this disastrous, we have the opportunities of the Democrats wanting to shall we say politicize a hurricane, which, by the way, we have no more hurricanes now than a hundred years ago. And the hurricanes aren't any worse than they were 60, 70 years ago. Facts don't matter. Then we have the president who belongs in assisted living, talking about congressman Jackie warski of Indiana. She was killed tragically about 6 weeks ago, and he's looking around a few days ago to find congressman where larsi, who the president had spoken to her husband after the collision that killed her and also issued a press release 6 or 7 weeks ago talking about how good that congressman was, but he forgot he had one of those senior demanded moments, but Joan and you and I now is Wayne Allen root for America dot com and went on a route first of all. Let's deal with the core inflation number that came out on Friday. What does that mean? Well, it means that everything I said is true. I hate to say I told you so, but I'm a guy who was arguing for the last year and a half that Biden's been president year and a half plus that inflation is not transitory. Inflation is with us for a long, long time to come. And of course, that, you know, look, I was proven right about that months and months ago, but then there were people who said, yeah, but it's balanced out and it's going to go down from here and it's not going up anymore. It's peaked. And they're all kinds of nonsensical things that liberals say it even right or Republicans say. And they're just not true. The inflation is exploding. It's getting worse by the day. And of course, everything Biden does leads to more inflation. When you announce that everybody in the world is going to get their student loans, they'll just disappear and you don't have to pay them back anymore. That's inflation. When you end a rail strike by giving a 24% raise to rail workers, every union in the nation now says, well, that's my goal. We've got to get 24% salary increase for all of our members. That's inflation. It has to be passed down to the consumer and it's just getting worse and worse and worse. And the real point in all of this is that if a Democrat came along and said, let's have 90% taxes. Well, that would be communism, right? That's as bad as it gets. And everybody would be protesting in the streets we become a communist nation, Biden figured out a way or it's not Biden because obviously he's brain dead with dementia. But the people behind him is handlers, I believe Obama is the real president of the United States. And Obama and his cabal his communist cabal figured out a way to get tax rates to 90% and wipe out the middle class without raising taxes at dime. It's called inflation. It's an invisible tax. It's a stealth tax. So now you add in massive inflation and we've already got at least 50 to 60% taxes when you add in state and local and federal and property taxes in some states like my Nevada bill with zero state income taxes, very low property taxes. So assume we only pay 50%. In total taxes. But in places like California, it's 60 to 70%. Now add in 20% inflation and forget those numbers that it's at 8% 9%. The real inflation in America is in the 20s. So add 20 and 60. Let's be nice. Forget 70% taxes together in California. Let's say 60. I'll take the bottom number. 60 and 20 is an 80% tax rate. Some people may be paying 90. No matter what you make now, you don't get to keep any of it. It all goes to household needs, expenses, car payments, house payments, grocery payments, gas in your car payments, your electric Bill going through the roof. Thanks to green energy and the Democrats, it's all insanity. We are now a communist nation. Whatever you make, figure 70, 80, 90%, no longer belongs to you without taxes being raised one dime under Biden. It's all about the stealth tax called inflation. And the interest rates have got to be above inflation. Otherwise, the banks make no money. So if inflation is 8, 9, ten, 12, 14%. The interest rates have got to be above that, which is where we're headed toward that. So we got the inflation problems. And the other thing in the major cities, you're in Vegas. I'm in Cincinnati, we're largely we have more crime here than ever before, but it's a smaller number. I saw a couple days ago that a very very bright EMT African American female was like killed and clubbed to death, stabbed by some mentally ill person. I watched near Penn station, New York City, and again an African American female was kicked in the head repeatedly by homeless bomb who, by the way, killed his own mother previously, but got out of jail. And so crime crime and war crime. Let's talk about the EMT in New York City. What happened? Well, you know, I'm tying inflation a crime for a reason here. It's one of the reasons I want to talk about both today with you, Bill. Because I gave a speech in front of a conservative group, not a political group, but it was a conservative patriotic group, a national group that had their convention in Las Vegas about a month ago. And they asked me to be the MC the evening and I said, well, that's great. I'm glad to be the MC, but I want to give a speech of my own. Kelly McEnany was the prime speaker, the keynote speaker. But as soon as she was done, I got up and gave my speech. And I said, look, all the men of America. For the most part, huge majority overwhelming majority vote Republican already, especially almost every white male. But now we're getting Hispanic males were getting blackmails. The men we've got the votes. We've got to run an entire campaign aimed at women. Women is the problem for the GOP. Let's acknowledge it. And the issues that women care about are they're spending money, especially single women, they pay the bills. They know what the groceries cost. They know what the gas in their cart costs. It's inflation inflation inflation. It's crime women are scared. They're scared they kill off the streets. They're scared in the privacy of their own home. Someone's going to come in and kill them and their family. They're scared they'll be carjacked in their car when they're picking up their kids at school. Women are scared, crime is out of control. And the third thing is schools. Women know their kids are getting no education. Schools are failing. They don't want their kids to learn about critical race theory. They don't want their kids to learn about transgender ideology. They want their kids to learn reading, writing and math. Those are the three issues. Let's stick to them. Let's show ads. Showing the massive crime, the people being killed, the women being killed and terrorized and raped and assaulted on streets all over America. Let's show the inflation and how families are close to the breaking point. And bankruptcy and living on credit cards and soon they'll be homeless, show it all, show how bad the schools are failing. And that they want Johnny to come home as Jane. Those are the issues that matter.

"The 80s and 90s. All right, Billy Cunningham the great American, of course the kids are going back to school this week and next week, and the week after that, it's going to be a something like 80 million school kids going to go back. I noticed that in college, there are 10 million fewer college kids in classes today than were ten years ago, so there's a nominal collapse is the right word, but there's less desire to go to college and also what's happening in many urban and rural environments is that many kids are back two to three years because of the pandemic and there's a crisis everywhere. I know in many parts of California, Ohio, Florida, that there's large retention bonuses being paid to teachers and teachers are leaving the profession high school and grammar school and middle school at a Harry rate that teacher systems don't want to do it anymore. It's too expensive. It's too many difficulties. And a man that has great perspective on this is Jeremy Adams. He's the California teacher of the year, and his book is hollowed out a warning about America's next generation. Of course, by Jeremy Adams and Jeremy. But I think for the second or third time welcome to the Bill Cunningham show and Jeremy is we're going back to school, whether it's grade school, whether it's middle school, whether it's high school or college, but you have perspective from California. How difficult is it today to be a teacher in the state of California, for example? There's no question that teaching in my 25th year here is radically different than it was in my 15th or tenth year. I mean, when you look at this teacher exodus that you alluded to in the introduction here, I mean, I know everybody wants to say that it's about low salaries and the pensions aren't enough. And I understand that who doesn't want to be paid more. But I'll tell you the number one source of the problem is that teachers are profoundly frustrated and morale is low because the job just keeps getting harder. And one of the things that the public doesn't understand is that all of the problems of civil society, they seem to kind of like, you know, this is like a backstop where all of the problems end up at school and teachers are asked to do more than be teachers now. We're asked to be counselors and act as parents and act as friends. Sometimes teaching is about the third or fourth thing that we do. So instantly harder now than it was ten or 15 years ago. I have some factoids from your book, among other things between 2007 and 2017, teen depression rose by 63% suicide in kids, aged ten to 24 jumped 56%. You also have a factoid that under COVID-19 lockdowns, young people screen time increased by staggering 5 hours per day. And so we have a circumstance or teachers have to be police officers, counselors, mothers, fathers, surrogate parents, and now you deal with a group of especially teens because of going through the changes of life, et cetera, or 63% have depression and suicides raise 56% as a teacher, how can you stop that? Man, that is an amazing question. And you really put your finger on the pulse of the problem here, which is that these problems were around before COVID. And that's really what I want the audience to understand and why I'd love for them to get the book is because these problems have kind of a hollowed out generation we're already present. You know, a lot of those statistics that you were naming, this was before we isolated the kids, locked them down for a year. Put them away from their school communities, isolated them from their friendships, added the screen time, put them in masks, so you couldn't communicate, made them terrified of the world, again, this was before COVID. And we all know that COVID has amplified and accelerated these problems. I mean, that's why I use this term, and it's I'm not trying to be Snyder or funny. You know, I call my students coming back last year, and even a little bit today, zoom B's because they were on Zoom for a year, and they came back as zombies. And they have problems holding conversations. They have problems looking you in the eye. And as you said, the thing that really bugs me and what bothers me is I'm going to be kind of completely transparent is, you know, I was really gratified by all the response to the book when it came out. But the thing that bothered me is kind of the response that, well, you're just a grumpy old man. You're just a crank. You're just a curmudgeon. Every generation thinks the next one is going to help. Not true. This is a uniquely uniquely unhappy, miserable, depressed, lonely, isolated generation. And that's because we've created a world where the things that make life meaningful for them, right? Loving your country, having a strong family, having a sense of faith, learning strong friendships, all those things are missing with our young people. That's why they're literally hollowed out of meaning and purpose in their lives. I'm looking at another factoid in your book, a hollowed out, a 2018 Gallup survey discovered that 51% of 18 to 29 year olds have a positive view of socialism, only 45% of positive view of capitalism. So we have marching Marxist that come out of colleges, universities today, and I would imagine from 2018 were four years later that I imagined that a 51% is much higher now because many, many more, especially with the inflation reduction act and all that stuff going on, that more and more turning to government to solve their problems

"Billy Cunningham and of course to one of the leaders in the Congress is doctor congressman bread wenstrom who's gone through quite a bit in his years in Congress and it kind of began on the national consciousness a few years ago when representative Steven scalise was gunned down by a left wing activist who was watching Rachel maddow and listening. He was a Bernie Sanders supporter and he was sent to Washington in his own mind to kill a bunch of Republicans, but one can not imagine what's happening now with president Trump and you've gone through a lot of congressmen as far as the ability of the FBI and the DoJ to separate Republican from Democrat and my mind if Democrats do the same or worse things than Republicans. They get a Texas El Paso. If Republicans don't abide by all the rules and the regulations, they get, oh, hell's breaking loose. So can you tell me whether or not you think there's different rules for thee and not for me when it comes to the DoJ and the FBI? Talking about think that that's the case. And too many things have happened since I've been in Congress. It lead me to doubt and lead me to not have trust in certain components of the FBI. I will say that I want to mention what happened in Cincinnati just last week with an attack on the FBI office there. And our FBI responded appropriately. They did everything they could to try and give this man a chance to live and he chose differently. And that man is responsible for his own actions, not with anybody else said or did. And I will say the same thing about the guy who tried to kill us at the baseball field and those that misbehaved and basically invaded the capital, if you will. I say the same thing. They're responsible for their own actions. But the situation we're in right now certainly leaves you scratching your head when you see the inconsistencies of what has taken place. Sandy Berger served under the Clinton administration and he was taking classified documents very clearly intentionally out into under his clothing. And he was charged with a misdemeanor. Hillary Clinton. We know James Comey. This is recent history. He stands up and said she had all these classified documents on her own server, which she should not have had. And also not only that she destroyed some of the evidence and nothing happened to her. So it raises the question of what are they really up to or are these agencies political? And I can go to the shooting at the baseball field where this man who tried to kill as many Republicans as he possibly could. He had names of Republicans in his pocket. He was camping out for two months by the baseball field before he launched the attack. He made sure that these were Republicans by asking a few people that were leaving practice early. 136 rounds were fired that day in the capital, police weren't there undercover with Steve scalise. He would have killed 20 to 30 members and staff of Congress and changing the balance of power in the House of Representatives. Which I consider an insurrection, but keep all that in mind and understand that the FBI, the only agency, the other law enforcement Alexandria, you know, they called this terrorism, et cetera. The FBI came to us and said that this was just a temp for suicide by cop. Well, our jaws dropped. And if yours don't, that's amazing, because you think about that, you know, if you want suicide by cop, you just pull a gun on a cop, and it's over in usually with one bullet. That was not the case here. But why did the FBI come forward and say that? We still don't know. And one can assume some things. Andrew mccabe, who was very much a part of the Russian collusion hoax, and the FBI upper level involvement with that. Not the lower level FBI. I want to be clear. This is upper level FBI. And we're involved with all of that. This is the same guy. So maybe he didn't want it to be said that a Democrat, a liberal, tried to kill a bunch of Republicans because it doesn't sit there narrative. And the FBI during this entire thing never interviewed one of us that were there that day. Not one. They're an investigative body. This event happens. You have all these members of Congress there and none of us were interviewed and then they come and tell us it was suicide by cop. We've been fighting that for some time and we didn't see Christopher wray on the intelligence committee for four years and when I finally did explain the details of the day and questioned how they could come up with that solution. He then changed it to domestic filing extremism. But that's not enough. We want to see the case file. We have oversight over these agencies. We fund these agencies. We are a government of the people. And so we are responsible on behalf of the American people trying to get as much transparency as we possibly can out of our agencies because we have to decide if they get money or not to continue their mission. And they have still not let us see the case file. And you have two members on the intelligence committee that have been denied this. They were actually there that day. What's the possible reason? The guy's dead. It's over. What's the reason? Yeah, there's no further investigation and we brought that up. Trent Kelly, who's a two star general in the military and also an attorney and a former prosecutor. He said, this man's dead. You have no reason. They make up their rules. They say, well, it's our practice not to tell you things. You don't get to do that. This is who we are. And so those things are going to change. And they have to change because they have to be honesty and transparency. We want to know the lessons learned. How did they get it so wrong? Did it come from the acting director? We want to know that. Look, we need the FBI. We do need an agency like this to protect us. But they have to understand they have to be transparent, especially with the committee that has oversight over them or else it's going to be difficult for us to fund them. We're about truce Jeff and the American way. We want the answers that we want. But

"My Billy Cunningham, the great American courses past weekend, turning point USA had their big convention. They're big talk. Many of the great speakers are there including the trumpster and joining you and I now is Charlie Kirk. He's the author of the college scam and so much more founder and executive director of turning point USA. And Charlie Kirk, I think for the first time welcome to the Bill Cunningham show. And how we avoided each other, these low these many years. How's that possible? It's hard to believe, but our paths were inevitably going to cross so honored to be here. Thank you. Talk to me about the reason because this is one of the great scams along with the energy scam along with the southern border scam in American history. When I went to college, maybe when you went to college, it was, it was inexpensive. And I went to Xavier university once the university of Toledo law school took out some minor student loans, paid them off within 5 years. I think when I came out and my wife came out, we owed a total of about $1800 and it took about 5 years. It wasn't a big deal. Going back in time, what did the so called experts say, 15, 20 years ago, and looking forward to the future is to how college would not only be important, but it would be a scam. Describe the book the college game and why should apply today to men, women and their parents and grandparents. Sure, yeah, I actually never went to college, which is one of the reasons I wrote the book. In some ways, I'm the best person in the worst person to talk about how college is a scam. But I make up for any deficit that I might have had in personal experience with actually visiting over a hundred campuses at turning point USA and speaking at every corner you could imagine and running a national student organization. But look, I mean, in the book, the college scam and people can get it at college scam dot com. We go through a ten count indictment where we talk about the necessary the failings of college and as if I am a prosecutor and you are the jury. And so I make it very, very factual because I know this topic and somewhat controversial and people get really fired up. And we go through every possible counter argument. Oh, Charlie, don't you need a degree to be able to get a job? Oh, Charlie isn't it necessary? Are they really that bad? We talk about all of that. And I make the argument that the vast majority of students that are going to college should not be going at all. I make the argument that there's almost there's very little to any redeemable college or institutions left. And I think that this is a multi $1 trillion scam that has been thrown on the American people. It's right in front of us. We all know it at some level, and yet we're putting up with it through taxpayer subsidies, conservative donor donations, and also through our children, which is the most disturbing thing. I mean, I was just talking to somebody said, Charlie, you know, I love the fact you're writing this book, but my kids are still going to go to college because I want my kids to be educated. So if you want your child to be educated, definitely don't send them to college to the exact opposite will happen. In fact, when you're in college, what are two of the three things parents don't know about that happens in almost every college, including private schools. I can't tell you I am Friends of mine with kids at Notre-Dame. South Bend, one would perceive. Hey, my kid got admitted to Notre-Dame. And now what they're doing is taking down the

"Man who's been recognized as radios best The recipient of not one but two prestigious Marconi awards for his broadcast excellence The one and only Bill Cunningham Billy Cunningham the great American you know one of the great supporters of Donald Trump and also conservatism And libertarianism is Wayne Allen root and I read this column that Wayne Allen root is now a supporter of BLM I said are you kidding me Are you kidding me BLM So I have to read a little bit further when I read first of all welcome to the bill cutting M show and Wayne talk about your support for BLM Yes Bill great to be on with you As always what was a great honor And to me BLM means babies lives matter And by the way I do believe I do believe in Black Lives Matter not the organization I've seen Marx his organization started by a bunch of Marxist lesbians who don't want men in the household and who hate America to hate white people and who hate policemen Obviously I don't agree with that but I certainly agree that black lives do matter I believe all lives matter whether they be white black Muslim Christian Jewish doesn't matter lives matter But babies live certainly matter and Democrats without any doubt don't care about babies lives whether you discuss abortion which in many cases I think certainly beyond 12 to 16 weeks certainly beyond that becomes you know without a doubt the murder of babies And then of course running out of baby formula and for people who really have specialized needs of baby formula I apologetic favor formula There's none and the head of the largest plant that manufactures day before It says expect this to continue the shortage of baby formula for the rest of the year We're only in May How could any parent have time to spend three four or 5 hours rushing around town trying to find babies formulas beyond me but all I could tell you is they're in a world of difficulty and how could this happen in America Well in Joe Biden's America you know you can expect yes shortages You could expect grocery shelves to be empty You can expect prices through the roof with an inflation like the wire Republican Now you can expect that it's hard to even feed your baby and it's beyond the murder of unborn babies Now it's the starvation of living babies It's all crazy and this is the consequence of a stolen election Allow me to read an extended sentence you have in your column about BLM And you say the following but Biden and the Democrats are clearly too busy and distracted from destroying the economy killing the entire energy industry wimping up high hyperinflation hyperinflation to destroy the middle class sending $40 billion of taxpayer money to the Ukraine the most corrupt nation on earth trying their best to start a nuclear war with Russia making sure that every violent criminal is released without bail opening up the border to every disease and poverty stricken person in the world Brainwashing kidney gardeners to hate white people and change their sexual identity as can DoJ and FBI to persecute and prosecute parents at PTA meetings and of course encouraging violent protests at the homes of conservative Supreme Court judges knowing full well that one of these days a judge or a family may be murdered by an obsessed abortion grace democratic protesters and that's the only the beginning And so I go through this list and of course there's terrible shootings and buffalo and Laguna Beach in Milwaukee and Houston Things are happening Chicago every weekend This year in Chicago there's going to be 500 dead chicagoans along with 1500 wounded which the media largely ignores of a 6 year old catches a bullet in the side of the head You won't see David Muir and ABC News flying out to Chicago to find out why that happened because it doesn't fit their political agenda But when you think about just the issue of abortion I have a son you have kids One of the glorious moments is when you go to the obstetricians office and he or she says you want to look at the sonogram And the first thing you want to say absolutely Many parents don't want to know male or female if they really exist or not I'm not sure According to liberals male and female don't exist But to look at a baby maybe suck his or her thumb to look at the body parts In my case I said two feet Okay we got two hands We've got fingers got two eyes got a nose the kid looks good and does he have a stem or not okay Well you know it's a boy or a girl And how could any human being Listen to the heartbeat of your baby And then watch the baby move in the womb and then say it's okay to make the womb attune how does that happen in a civilized society and that whether it's NPR or the media they cover it from one perspective and never from the other they don't give two sides There's only one side And the fact is those parents that I've seen this sonogram way down the route Is that medical waste Is that a tumor Is that a cyst Is that like a kidney stone Or is that an unborn baby What is it Well listen I've seen the polls and it's a winning issue for the GOP as long as they stick their guns and the winning issue isn't necessarily the ban of all abortions And by the way the Supreme Court is not banning abortion Supreme Court if they stick if they stick to their decision of roe versus wade is merely kicking it to the states and letting them make their own decisions which is pretty much what the founding fathers want it and what I argue when I ran for president of the United States in 2008 as a libertarian I said look I'm not for or against abortion Even then I said I'm for severe restrictions on abortion but certainly it should be a state's rights issue That's what the constitution was intended for So all the Supreme Court is doing is kicking it to the states and you will see a California make abortion legal all the way up to the moment of birth and a week or two after crazy and Saturday mass murder and you will see New York do that and I guess Illinois with Chicago in it will probably do that Very liberal blue states will legalize abortion until the moment of birth or far beyond it and red states will either ban it or they will certainly limit it which is where I think almost everyone in America falls If you look at the polls Republicans have a winning issue if they say abortion should be very difficult It shouldn't be banned necessarily It should be very very limited very restricted Once you get beyond 12 weeks no more abortions If you can't figure it.

"In Houston a road rage incident and a black guy killed my black nephew Do you think Black Lives Matter is going to protest that or say anything about it Of course not But many other groups stepped up white groups non black groups and said let's form let's do some sort of a charity in Nicholas's name because it was such a good kit I mean he was truly a great community kid He loved his mom He's a child of God the whole deal But Black Lives Matter is not there So look Black Lives Matter is like anything else that has black on it Black entertainment television et cetera It's entertainment television and as it turns out that black people like it congratulations But it has been black entertainment television any more than there's black music any more than there's black dance any more than there's any of these other things We are one America and we have different groups that contribute in different ways but it's all American And the minute that we say all and they push back on it and try to make this distinction as if black people are going through so many more difficult things I would ask you this Billy Cunningham What have black people been through that any other race has now been through If you tell me slavery I'll tell you that's a lie If you tell me we don't have kids out of wedlock that we don't have kids dropping out of school We have kids going to people going to prison Every other race has that Now do we have more of it It's probably But whose fault is it It's not anybody's fault it's not a white man's fault It's a lot of the fault that we drive for ourselves So the minute that we stop letting these excuses get made that oh if you push back against Black Lives Matter you're racist I will push back against Black Lives Matter on behalf of anybody because I know black lives don't matter to black people I know these clowns have claimed that Black Lives Matter are nothing but fraud to race pimps and I wrote a book about it Race pimping So if you want to know what they're about their race pimps and I will call them out every single time to their faces and I won't let anybody try to make excuses that you can't push back against it All lives matter in this country That by itself catches flak And whenever I see in suburbia the signs Black Lives Matter generally in the homes of suburban moms and dads who want to appear and signal their virtue to everyone I feel like saying well if you have to say that then maybe you got a problem because the black folks that I've known are people like you and several black judges several black attorneys I go at times through a black doctor Of course no one would question whether Black Lives Matter A course Black Lives Matter But when the liberal Democrats the media treat African Americans as if there's some difference species of human being that can't figure out how to get a driver's arm You can't virtue signaling their virtue signaling racist who want to pretend that they're doing something different And they don't fool me for a second If I see those signs I'd like to paint a red racist across it because every single one of them as far as I'm concerned represents nothing but racism If you're for BLM who has done nothing for blacks whose absolute killed the police in this country who's watched as black people commit heinous crimes against each other And record numbers more than any other ethnic group and you want to tell me Black Lives Matter I just know you're a virtue signaler And my thing about this is that it's our responsibility to make those people understand that we know what you're about and you're not going to get away with it Let me tell you when you know you're winning When those signs disappear because those people finally are embarrassed at what they've created And what they condone And that's what we should be shooting for And other story out of Louisville of course is that police arrested a well-known Black Lives Matter activist after he tried to shoot a guy named Craig Greenberg who's a Democrat running for the position of mayor and Louisville his name is quintes Brown He's 20 years old He was on MSNBC during the riots about a year and a half ago in Louisville he's a he called himself a leader of Black Lives Matter and for some reason Brown walked into the campaign headquarters of the Jewish democratic candidate running for mayor his name is Craig Greenberg at a 9 millimeter Glock and fired several shots somehow at point blank range This is the bullet exit at the end of the barrel Craig Greenberg moved his body in the bullet went along his body instead of through his body It was in campaign headquarters all hell broke loose there were four of the people shot at he was located about a block away and arrested He had numerous other clips on him He was going to do what he was going to do I'm sure he left there thinking that he had just killed Greenberg murdered him and so he got a bond of a $100,000 and guess who posted it Black Lives Matter Black Lives Matter Exactly Went there and made sure that quintes Brown 21 years old who by the way has somewhat a distinguished previous record as far as academia I don't know about his

"Billy Cunningham the great American I call him a patriot because I consider lieutenant colonel Stewart scheller a patriot for what he did He spent many years about 18 or 19 years serving as a marine officer He was serving several tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan and a few months back There was one person As of this point as we sit here in the middle of January who's been punished for speaking the truth about what happened in Afghanistan including the killing or murder of 13 of troops and also the wounding of hundreds and the death of thousands that resulted And that is a lieutenant colonel Stewart scheller Lieutenant colonel Stewart sheller welcome to the Bill Cunningham show in lieutenant colonel How are you I'm good though Thanks for having me on I appreciate the opportunity to speak to you and your listeners Let's go back a little bit in time Before there was an announcement to withdraw say July and August can you tell the American people in the first part of last year June say January through June what was the status of the American involvement in Afghanistan success or failure from your perspective or things working not working before Biden did what Biden did it Just a general way how were things going Well we've been in Afghanistan since 2001 I was in Afghanistan in late ten early 11 I think it was early 11 when we killed Osama bin Laden and we were all asking questions then about are we going to pull out I was there when we were talking about going after Al-Qaeda and then it kind of pivoted to the Taliban I stared at the enemy in Pakistan that we weren't allowed to attack So I've been questioning what we were doing over there for a while I mean general milley just confessed to Congress in his testimony recently that he believed the war was over four years ago So I have a lot of questions about what our senior leadership at the four star and political level has been doing So I don't think anyone is arguing that we should have been over in Afghanistan forever but when President Biden made the decision to withdraw in April the reason I spoke out was because the manner in which it was done was just highly ineffective and obviously resulted in losses that are just unacceptable for the American people Wasn't it a horrible decision to leave Afghanistan the way it was done and that Biden I think most of the testimonies indicated from military leadership they would not have done the things Biden ordered to be done They wanted a different approach but at the end of the day general milley decided of course to do what was done and you put those marines and other service personnel and impossible situation resulting in your court martial and imprisonment for a period of time Did you give us a lot of thought to what you did on social media throw in your rank on the table before it happened Was that a spur of the moment thing lieutenant colonel or was that something you had thought about for quite a while Well I'll come back to that question right there but there's one thing I want to clarify to General millia is the chairman of the joint chiefs His role is to train man and equip the services and to provide forces to the combatant commanders Ever since the Goldwater nickels act of the 80s the military has divided the global up in a region and there are four star generals in these regions that report directly to the Secretary of Defense So what general milley does is he provides forces to these combatant commanders General McKinsey the four star central command combatant commander was the senior general that was responsible for developing the Afghanistan withdrawal plan So if you look at the task organization chart there's like a dotted line to general milli meaning general milley has advice but ultimately general milley has no authority in terms of developing this plan So when you're asking me as the military professional understanding all this it was general McKenzie's responsibility to develop a plan and advise the president So and then I'll come back to that First of all answer your question So your question was me personally as I was watching this unfold So I like everyone else was watching in the media and social media to fall out of Afghanistan and getting frustrated And then my service chief who worked for general millet the comment on the Marine Corps general burger made a statement essentially saying your sacrifices were worth it He was trying to address the failures and then he ended with struggling go see counseling and my problem with his letter was that he didn't address the operational failures at the four star general McKenzie level People were upset not because they thought their sacrifices weren't worth it They were upset because senior leaders were incapable of developing a plan that efficiently could have withdrawn our forces which was very capable of doing And so when general McKinsey submitted a plan to come April when President Biden made the decision withdrawal general McKinsey came to him with courses of action And in the military there's people called operational planners And they developed these plans And so they submitted the National Security Council and President Biden multiple plans Most of these plans involved maintaining Bagram air base Bagram air base up top my head is 40 to 50 miles outside of Kabul and it's key strategic terrain The whole withdrawal probably could have been executed through this It's hard for a civilian to fathom how big this establishment is It could perimeter security multiple airfields I mean it's a key piece of train So when they went to the National Security Council because President Biden wanted to have everybody out by September 11th for a PR stunt they basically told general Mackenzie and his staff that he couldn't that he had to have less troops because they wanted everybody out quicker fashion by September 11th So what general McKinsey did in that critical moment he had an option to resign and say I can't execute this plan effectively or decide he was going to try and make do with the restraints placed on his plan but either way once he decided not to resign and he accepted those restraints he becomes accountable 100% and what he did was after he took those restraints and then his plan failed miserably I mean the Taliban advanced much faster than he could anticipate He had to rely on the Taliban for external security He abandoned Bagram to external security by the Taliban no doubt had a suicide bomber that ran through it killed a bunch of service members by his own admission he left hundreds of Americans We know now it was thousands hundreds of millions of dollars of equipment and then in response to the preventable attack he sent a drone strike that killed nothing but women and children And I can tell you having studied military history I've got a master in military science There is no better example in military history of just a complete failure And so then when we try and point fingers at who's accountable general Mackenzie goes back and says well no I'm not responsible because I told the president 2500 troops and why that's relevant is because of the 2500 troops was what was required to maintain boger base But my position is no it doesn't work like that Once you try to advise the National Security Council and the president and they said no you had a responsibility one to convince him you failed to convince him And then once he placed those restraints on your plan you were responsible You don't get to go back and say no I told him something else So that's where I'm at I have never heard President Biden vice president Kamala Harris Miller Mackenzie ever speak in those terms lieutenant colonel Stewart scheller and saying that at some point when you have to implement a policy you know he's doomed to failure You either throw your rank on the table and say I can't do this or you resign And McKenzie went along to get along because whatever the reason was at that point And Joe Biden wanted the 20th anniversary of 9 11 to be a march filled with the Patriots the freedom loving individuals in Kabul and Afghanistan that would recognize after all the sacrifices made by up to 7000 American soldiers and the billions of dollars have been spent Joe Biden wanted a photo op.

"Com Now here's the man who's been recognized as radios best The recipient of not one but two prestigious Marconi awards for his broadcast excerpts The one and only Bill Cunningham and Billy Cunningham the great American let's continue we never stop we simply continue Of course what's happening on the southern border has become a major issue And most of the polling indicates that most Americans are not satisfied with what's going on If you believe in more open immigration you want to know who's coming in and is not coming in And if you believe that we have too many immigrants here already about 45 million or so maybe as many as a quarter to a third are here shall I say at least illegally Many more than that some believe But New York University professor Lawrence Meade has written a book of burdens of freedom and what America's role in all of this could be and might be in professor Lawrence Meade Welcome I think for the first time to the Bill Cunningham show Lawrence Meade how are you Yeah very good thanks Good to have you here Now talk about the reason because when you look back and your line of work and look about something to cover what was about this topic that brought you enough interest to write this very good book Well basically I think frustration with the war on poverty I've been involved in poverty research and policy making for about 40 years And most of my life And in that time I haven't seen much progress because most of the research is founded on the idea that there are some set of social barriers that prevent poor people from getting ahead of this country And in fact we've disposed of the major barriers a long time ago and now the major difficulties simply that people who are poor typically do not take the steps needed to get out of poverty They are not focused on that They're focused on surviving from day to day And they don't actually think of life in terms of getting ahead or making more income or whatever Those are goals that are more characteristic of the broad society but they don't see this among seriously poor people Now I'm not denying that there are people who are temporarily poor I mean there are a lot of people who suffer hardships in various ways But I'm talking about the long-term cases where they've really proven very resistant to efforts to help So that drove me in the direction of culture I then said well obviously something else must be going on here We simply can't assume that the psychology of the series before is like that of mainstream society There has to be something else going on here And at that point I discovered the research world cultural differences and found that that really fit the bill that actually what we see among the seriously poor quality of passivity and endurance reactive temperament where one doesn't really take steps where the one reacts to outside pressures That's the temperament of the non western world Pretty much that's the way most of humanity lives And that isn't however the American way That's not how America is organized And if you approach life here it is status in a temperament of survival and endurance you're not going to get very far and you're going to Canada or other problems And I notice also as well among other poverty experts there has been a tendency to move towards culture as a way of understanding why the problem is so serious and so resistant They also are frustrated The experts don't agree about what to do They have different use of that policy But I noticed an exhaustion of serious thinking about how to explain poverty and that driving drove me in this direction as well as the other issues I address which are integration the collapse of poor countries overseas Those are actually the same the reason there is pretty simple They too are these are cultures of survival where people are getting through life and that's maybe all they could do I'm not saying that it's obviously there's some reason why they are like that But when you come to America you're in a totally situation a situation where you should make use of opportunities But to do that to seize opportunity and see life as a project that's very different from the temperament of most people in the world And we Americans think Americas think that's universal It really isn't And we have to recognize that America is really quite peculiar in this respect You have a part of your book that deals with America has 45 million who were born elsewhere Yeah first time in American history Yeah That's right No other country has that number or percentage Is that a good I see as a conservative libertarian that could be a good thing but it's turned out to be a bad thing How come we have 45 million people here now that were born elsewhere Well because America is popular America is a country of obvious wealth power freedom All those things and really you don't find a society like that A couple of exceptions But in general this is a feature found only in the western world So a whole lot of people are trying to get out of the poor countries they live in They get into the western world But the thing that we have to remember is that freedom also has its own demands that it isn't an easy thing to live in a free country And but the burdens you face are quite different See I see the non western rule is bearing the burdens of necessity These are people who are burdened by outside pressures and necessities scarcity misrule I mean all kinds of terrible things happen to them No question about it But when you come to America you don't have those things to worry about anymore You're going to have to be living in a country with the rule of law where there is some sense piece where there is much more opportunity than elsewhere But we forget that to seize the opportunity to make use of what America offers also makes its own demands And these are quite different from the bands you faced in the old country And professor how is it then everywhere I look if I watch CNBC squawk box I read a drive around Cincinnati and where I live Help wanted signs are everywhere need employees $20,000 signing bonus do this How do we have tens of millions in America.

"I'm Billy Cunningham. Let's you and I get out of right now. We have full lines almost already. So we got silence and Cedarville and Bert I love the name Bert and Sharon Ville, the old home of Mayor Mike Dallin. And Bill in North College Hill, the home a Mayo and Walker and Dick and Dayton, a good friend of Mike McConnell's and more one quick comment. We had a call off the air from a noted judge, and if he wants to call back in, you certainly welcome to do so. The difference is this which he pointed out, and we both know and that is that Twitter and Google and Facebook or not. Not public entities guarded by the First Amendment so they could do whatever they want to do. Now, the same thing apply until 1964 with the Civil Rights Act. And if private business owners living in North College Hill or sharing Beller Cedarville said, You know what? I don't want black people staying here in my place. I don't want black people to be coming into my store across keys at that point, a terrible moral idea. It's it's wrong. So what happened is to Congress passed a law. 1964 upheld as constitutional that if you're a business of public accommodations, plus some other categories, you can't discriminate on the basis of race or gender or religion. So that means if you agree to take the public license of selling vendors, whatever it might be, or you're inspected by the government to make sure that your facility is clean. At one of the accouterments of that is that you will not you will follow the Civil Rights Act of 1964. So up into that point. If you owned a store, you said, I want a bar People of Asian descent from coming in. Well, you could legally do it until 1964 bad business idea, but it was. That's the way it was over the last more than half a century. Private businesses have a menu of federal laws they have to comply with one of them is you can't discriminate on the basis of race, sex or gender. Now, in the case of Twitter, they're not discriminating on the basis, they're discriminating the basis of political opinion. Which is not a protected category and over the years, disabilities been added to the category 1991. So there's a few areas that when you conduct private business, you cannot discriminate. Race, gender or sexual orientation, disability things like that. But if you say I don't want to have I want to have a restaurant or bar that caters only due to Republicans. You could do that. Only the Democrats are. You can do that if you won't have a business where you sell? Uh so, uh, iPhones and you could say, you know what? I do not want Someone who voted for Donald Trump. To do my but what you can do that It's a bad business idea, but that's the difference. And so Twitter has most likely. The legal right, Tonto say we're going to de list and D certified, not put on our platforms, all these conservative publications and persons and at this point the only argument might be an anti trust one that bill sites discussed, but that Lawsuit would take a decade to resolve it would take a long time. And so that's the differential is to why Twitter can legally do it. And not likewise, I've posted one thing on Twitter in the past week or 10 days. I'm evaluating along with many others, whether I want to be on a platform. That, uh Is used to discriminate based upon political viewpoint. Because that platform allows Louis Farrakhan and TIFA Black lives matter ink. It allows communist red China to use their platform to disseminate their ideas. Not President Trump. He's not that's wrong. And they've also de listed dozens and dozens of other conservatives, not me, but they've done that. So I'm evaluating how tow can continue to communicate with you, which we do six days a week anyway. Let's go to the calls and great to have you with me later on. We've scheduled Dr Blatt b l A T T have tried help. Talk about Cove. It also Kevin Jackson of the Black Sphere on M L. King Jr Day. One little story and then I'll go to the calls. I had the honor and 1971. Theo be hard by Judge Robert V. Franklin, Robert Vernon Franklin and Lucas County Common Police Court as a bailiff. And there was an opening there. The job paid $6000 a year which I thought was quite a bit And at that point I was going to law school between base and I was in law school at night. From six PM was the first class at University of Toledo and I concluded a 10 p.m.. And so I was working at nationwide consumer services, as like a bill collector. This is after I graduate. Miss Sager admitted to university later to get my juris doctor degree. And there was a little little blurb I saw on the wall of Of Professor Ron Rates room. If you want to be a bailiff and Lucas County common Police Court, here's the number to call, So I called down. I got it and interview And he hired me to be his constable, along with Cormac Delaney, who continues to practice law. One of the first things I noticed in his chambers or Ah young, very young Martin Luther King Jr. With Judge Franklin Very young, like 18 19 years old and at this point to course, King was assassinated about three years earlier, but he was still a giant and the civil rights industry and judge Franklin in the 19 sixties. It was a judge at that point for about 10 years would bring M L. King Torto Toledo because everybody's And so a lot of pictures of Martin Luther King Jr MLS. He called him and Judge Franklin because they went to school together at Morehouse College in the late 19 forties. M. L King was my boss's roommate. The three of them a Morehouse College. You often tell me stories about how human and how personable and how friendly and how committed and just a great guy to be around M. L was And they would double dated center met Coretta and away we go. That was three years after the assassination, so that was he had nothing but the highest respect for King. And then when he was when he was assassinated. I think it was like April 4th 1968 in Memphis that the judge and his family went down to Memphis. Originally and then over to Atlanta for the funeral, So let's continue and if the line becomes available, which it never does 513749 7000 let's go to Silas and Cedarville the home Of Governor Mike DeWine and then Burton, Bill and Dicking with three lines open. 749 7000 Silence and Cedarville. Welcome to the Bill Cunningham Show in Silence. Please go ahead. Hello, Willie. I'm unquestionably. A second term was stone from Trump. Nevertheless, in view of.

By Brian Lemming. And why not saying the last name correctly? It's Al I am I n she might be lining and lemon and two others participated directly or indirectly and I saw some work done on the case by Channel nine. And by Chip heart. I wanted to check in with Officer Kevin Bear, who's spokesman for the High Division of Wildlife. How Kevin Parrot his family are doing. And Brian Banbury welcome again to the Bill Cunningham Show and Brian, How are you? Good, sir. How are you, My friend? Good talk to me. First of all, for those who may not be paying attention is described the American people. What happened? Well, I want the details of that air. Certainly still being worked out. It is an ongoing investigation. Um, investigator bear, uh, Woz in a complaint situation. Um, working on a law enforcement project, of course, with with other officers of the higher Division of wildlife. Um uh, Was shot at some point during that during that investigation in that, in that project they were working on and has subsequently been down at the University of Cincinnati Hospital ever since. Happening. Clinton County How bad a shape is he in? Well, he's been in there for for 25 days. He's not out of the woods yet. Um he's definitely in a battle. But one thing I definitely you know, can say about Kevin. I've known the man for for 30 years we actually were in college together and We're going to spend a good portion of our career together doing similar jobs, a demand the fighter And I love this love. This family loves his work. Um, you know, we don't have a huge number of even statewide. We we have right around 400 employees and the higher Division of wildlife. So we certainly all Don't know each other and Go to trainings and events and meetings and things like that throughout your career, and you know, you get to know one each other, so there's there's kind of a bigger family. You know, family component and then just working with people. You know, I was told he was working the poaching investigation complaints and that he was putting out some decoys. I guess I'm not aware of this directly. But I understand that there are decoys that make it look as if a deer standing there that have somebody I saw this on television. A lot of lot of lot of hunters want to shoot from the road. Goes, They could make a quick exit. And then a shot was fired from the road after complaint was filed, thinking it was a deer and it was a It was one of those one of those fake tears and the bullet traveled and And hit Officer Kevin Bear in the belly and that suffered serious wounds. How big of a problem is poaching and shooting from the river should shooting from Rose? Is that a common thing? Well, no, I wouldn't say common and that's one. I think one thing. Maybe that I would like to correct a little bit. It's it's not calm. When you think of think of the thousands upon thousands of hunters that we have, um, you know, that's not a common activity among hunters. Now, Obviously, there are some poachers out there that obviously do partake in the activity on DATs. Why we're that's part of the reason we're out there. You know, we're out there to keep the good guys. You know the good guy's name clean but catch the bad ones. And, you know, I've worked several of those decoy projects throughout my career. Um, uh, decoys of all types of you know whether the base you know deer, turkeys or present, sir or coyotes are used by by fishing game agencies throughout the nation. Toe help combat in particular specific complaint areas and problems where you do have an isolated cell. Of these. These sites. Individuals better operating so You know, in general, speaking of their decoy project that that is or decoy projects in general, That is why you, Ron, what can average Americans do to help the family of Officer Kevin Bear? So they're definitely you know, if you go on the Ohio Division of Wildlife, um Facebook page. There's definitely links there. Um, the F O P organization on I believe has got some fundraising activities. Um, the shield organization. There's several organizations there that we Have have recognized we've really shared shared the eternal order of police. Who's heading this up here out of Ohio.

Welcome to all right. Brian Banbury. Thank you very much. We wish the Kevin bear family. Nothing but the best.

"Billy Cunningham. I'm one of those guys that was up with 3 41. And this morning on his finally announced by Vice President Mike Pence the Joe Biden and won the election, and there were five United States congressman the state of Ohio. Who objected accounting Pennsylvania's electoral votes. Chabot Davidson gives Johnson and Jordan one of them was with us now, Congressman Steve Chabot. Welcome again to the Bill Cunningham Show and Steve, How are you? Bill doing okay. Obviously, yesterday was quite a shock to the nation and everybody whether you were directly involved in it or not, but doing relatively okay. Why did you vote? Not Theo Count the Pennsylvania electoral votes, Although I looked at this very closely and clearly in my view. What happened in in Pennsylvania the way the election was handled there was unconstitutional Now people have different views on that. But the Constitution is quite clear that legislatures Are they have the power to determine the time? The place the circumstances for an election? Not anybody else and you had courts. You had the secretary of the Commonwealth. There. You had a local election officials in my view. Who usurped the power of the state legislatures and to allow that under those circumstances, those votes to come in, I felt would have violated my oath. And you know, we all take a note Couple of the Constitution. And I did, too. Now I'm not saying that people that came to a different conclusion. They're violating their oath. You know, we swear toe pull the constitution to the best of our ability and the way we see things, and that's the way I thought And you know, Republicans were divided on that Democrats were united. You know they were they were, for whatever reason, they all voted the same way Republicans who were divided As far as the labeling and the smearing of people like you from the mainstream eating the Democrats saying You're anti America. You're anti the Constitution. I look at it this way. Whether it was the electoral active 18 87 or the 12th amendment. Congressmen or senators have the right and in their mind might be the duty to object because the Constitution and states that have federal statutes give you the right to object. And so if you're fulfilling one of yer rights, you have the right to do it or not to do it. How's that anti constitutional when the constitutional provides for you to object? Yeah. You're absolutely right. We're an important check and balance on this to make sure that the Constitution is followed on duh again. I want to emphasize that people can come to a different conclusion on this. And you know you're going to get criticism on both sides. No matter how many you voted, and people have every opportunity to take, uh, shots out of figuratively, obviously. Criticized but I felt that and I didn't You know, I voted differently on the other state. I thought that the, uh, Arizona fires that there was insufficient. Yeah, Arizona, it was insufficient. Evidence there you base they had to that the objections they're focused on The application of their state law, and I didn't think it was appropriate for Congress to get involved in those circumstances. So I voted to certify in Arizona. So I There were I, You know, they were actually, I think. Not about 17. I think that ended up where I did, which was I voted to certify Arizona but to not certify Pennsylvania. I thought the what happened in Pennsylvania was particularly egregious. Irregularities. There were just rampant and I just couldn't in good conscience support. You have the right to do it. If you elect exercise that right or not exercise that right, That's up to you. It's not illegal. It's not unconstitutional is not throwing out balance. What it is, is exercising their rights under the 12th amendment else move on about 24 hours from this moment. Is when the riots in the insurrection happened and describe where you were and what happened as it began. Yeah, well because of coded and social distancing and all all that, Um, the speaker Who's Nancy Pelosi. I prefer to have a different speaker and they're obviously but she's the speaker. That's the way the people voted. And Elected her so they make the rules and she made the determination that there be not Maura than 11 members from each party on the House floor at the same time during the debate, Um and there are 435 so 90% of us We're not on the floor of the house at that point, when when this all started, most of us were back in our offices. I can't speak for everybody else. But that's where I was. There are three house office buildings. The cannon building. The Longworth Building, which is named after Nicholas Longworth, who's from Cincinnati and Weyburn. That's right. And I'm in. I'm in the Rayburn building. And fortunately because of my seniority the officers get assigned by how long you've been there, and I've been there a while now, um, so I have a great view out my window so I can see the Capitol building in the dome right out there. And so I saw some of this out the window. But the alarms were going on to the public address system that we have in the building, saying, you know the and we kept getting Emergency texts old during the day. And essentially, what they were talking about. Was just saying that place you know whether in place and not to leave the building. I had one staff person air and he wasn't able even leave till eight or nine o'clock that night. They wouldn't let anybody leave the buildings. Even so, so I was in the building across the street. More less watching this on TV like Virtually every other American wife. Congressman Chabot. Do you think President Trump bears some responsibility for what happened? Bill his words, you know whether intentionally or not certainly played a role in what happened, uh, down the down the street at the Capitol building, so they're in my view, There's no question about that. Are you embarrassed by your support of President Trump? No, I'm not. You know, I supported his policies. I think we're much better than Hillary Clinton's in his policies, I believe would have been and continue to be in the next four years. Better than Joe Biden's Esso. I voted for him both times. Um and so, no, I'm not at all. Were you shocked the Trump supporters. We're talking less than 1%, but that Trump supporters trashed United States Capitol if somebody would have told you a few weeks ago. That the United States Capitol.
